Can't Afford The Premium Membership at WA?
I've seen quite a few times where starter members love WA but claim they can't afford to upgrade because of financial issues. I get it, times are tough! Then there are some of you that feel Wealthy Affiliate is too expensive. If that's you, read this article here for clarification on the premium membership fee.
But for everyone else that sees the value of WA and needs help with upgrading, here are some ways to get the money to upgrade:
1. Watch Some YouTube Videos
So obviously the best way to make money online is to build a passive income with affiliate marketing which is what WA is teaching you here. But if you don't have the money to invest in yourself at the moment, you can try to make money other ways. Now the key here is to take the money that you make elsewhere and re-invest in yourself by buying a premium membership here.
Fortunately I cover a lot of great ways to make money online on my Youtube Channel that can pay for your premium membership. My most popular money making YouTube videos can be found by clicking here. Remember most of these things will require you trading in time for money. That shouldn't be your goal and I know it's not if you're here. Take whatever money you make from these opportunities and reinvest them here where that money can lead to thousands of dollars in passive income for you in time!
2. Sell some of your old "JUNK" on Craigslist, Ebay or Amazon.
If you have old cds, cell phones, tvs, gadgets, clothes, toys, furniture, etc., there is probably someone out there that is willing to pay for it. It's like the saying goes, one man's junk is another man treasure! If not your junk, what about your family members or friends? Offer to clean out their garage or attic. You'd be surprised all the things you can find that can be sold online. Plus you'll get some brownie points for helping them! lol
3. Do some small online jobs on Amazon Mechanical Turk.
Most people know Amazon for shopping. But did you know they have a work at home section called mechanical turk where you can get paid for transcription, image tagging, data entry, writing articles, reviews and much more? Depending on the hits (jobs) you do, within a week or two you would probably have enough to pay for a month of WA! Best of all, while you're learning to build a business here on WA, you can make some money on the side with Amazon. So instead of having Amazon making money off you, make some money on off them and re-invest in yourself here at WA!
4. Review what you're currently spending money on & get to slicing!
Chances are you have a cable package where you don't even use all the channels you're paying for. Seriously, when was the last time you really watched the Indy network? Or maybe you have a cell phone plan where you have more minutes or data than you actually use per month. What about all that expensive ass coffee you buy from Starbucks? I guarantee if you really started to review your spending, there are numerous places where you can cut back and you would have enough to pay for your WA membership every month.
How much is your freedom and happiness really worth?
A premium membership is less than $2 per day and even cheaper if you can pay the year upfront.
Aren't your dreams and freedom worth more than that? What about your family? Isn't spending more time with them or giving them a life better than you had worth the sacrifice of less than $2 per day? I think when you view it like that, you'll be able to figure it out.
Again I understand how hard it is for some of us out there, so I don't want to minimize that. But sometimes we just don't have our priorities in order. Next time you spend money on something, I want you to ask yourself is this necessary and is it bringing me closer to my dreams? If you do that, I'm sure you'll soon find that you can afford a premium membership here at WA.
5. Ask A Family Member or Friend for A loan!
Fortunately starting an online business with WA is relatively cheap compared to starting an offline business which can cost several thousand or hundreds of thousands of dollars. With WA you can actually run your business for less than $2 per day if you go yearly which is only a few hundred dollars. It actually saves you money if you pay the year upfront since WA gives you a bigger discount for committing to yourself.
If you can borrow some money from one or more family members and friends to invest in you, to get a yearly membership that could help you focus on your business without worrying about a monthly cost. And if you happen to be my referral and go yearly, I have an Earn While You Learn Bonus that can literally help you earn the money to pay back your family or friends within a few short weeks or months. Some of the techniques in these earn while you learn videos have earned me hundreds if not thousands of dollars in a few weeks of applying them. So you can use them to pay your family members back. And even if those techniques don't work for you, you will be able to earn the money back by building your online business over time.
Either way, let your family or friend lenders know its a long term investment and you will pay them back in time as you make money with your business. Just make sure you're not borrowing money from someone that needs to see that money back right away. Because this business isn't a get rich scheme and you don't want to feel pressured to rush the process which is like a marathon. Slow and easy win the race.
What are you going to do?
So hopefully this article gives you a few options. Don't let obstacles get in the way of the freedom you deserve. In my experience when people really want something bad enough they will find ways to pay for it. Your dreams are worth more than excuses. So hopefully you see it that way. But if you can't do it, that's fine too. Do whatever is best for you.
But let me leave you with the following quote:
Let that marinate in your mind. Let me know your thoughts below. I would love to hear from you. Or feel free to share this with anyone you may have run into that isn't able to "afford" WA.
