I know the title of this article sounds crazy considering I've been a premium member since 2007. But as I interact with new members regularly I've come to realize maybe it's not the right option for everyone. So before anyone assumes I'm speaking blasphemy, let me break down my reasons down below.
1. You're expecting to make make money quickly.
Some people are under the misconception that going premium will now mean that their website is going to make money within a week or so now. In most cases this is a pipe dream. At the end of the day you're building a business and that takes time. So if you're investing in yourself via a premium membership hoping to recoup your initial investment or make a profit relatively quickly then you probably shouldn't do it. You need to have a long term mentality with this business. All the hours and time you are putting in now may not bear fruit until months or even a year later. If you're not good with that, then don't become a premium member until you are.
2. You can't pay the full price next month and on.
A lot of people are smart and take advantage of the discount offered for your first month which makes joining WA dirt cheap the first month. And they're hoping that they'll make enough money within a month to cover the next month. It's a nice thought and there are some people that are able to do this. But it's not the norm. Again when you decide to go premium it should be for the long term. If you're just joining in with the hopes of magically mastering this business in a month to cover your expense next month, the odds are stacked against you. Rome wasn't built in a day and I highly doubt your business will be built in a month. So if you don't think you'll be able to afford the full price next month and on. Just hold off until you can. Maybe it's better to save up for the full year instead which is actually cheaper in the longer run since WA gives you a discount for buying a full year membership.
3. You know it all already and don't need additional help.
Maybe you're one of those people that don't need extra help. You're good at hunting down information on your own. You don't really require any live one one chats or new weekly training videos. You're the type that learns better by making mistakes on your own rather than avoiding them all together. You view investing in yourself via books, school or online training as a waste of money or as a scam. If that's you then you're probably not reading this article and have left the community already. But just in case you haven't then again going premium may not be for you. And that's fine. I use to be one of those people and eventually learned that it cost me more not to invest in myself. So there is hope for you.
Well there you have it. Even though I've been here since 2007 and don't plan to give up my premium membership, I can understand why some of you shouldn't go premium. But I'd love to hear your thoughts because I know many of you have gone premium like me. So chime in below.
