Why Is Wealthy Affiliate So Damn Expensive?

Last Update: June 03, 2019

So I wanted to address the common misconception that when you pay for a premium membership at Wealthy Affiliate, it's just a glorified "over priced" fee for your website, hosting and a domain.

I've had to break down the fallacy in this nonsensical thinking one too many times. So that picture above pretty much represents my frustration when I hear this question. lol Either way I've decided to create this article to enlighten these misguided folks. Maybe you were one of them, or maybe you run into them as well. Either way, feel free to share this article with them.

But let's really break down what about $.84 per day gets you at WA. And yes when you do the math a premium membership costs about $.84 per day when go yearly or take advantage of the Black Friday specials. But I digress.

What You're Missing!

First and foremost you're not paying for JUST hosting, building a website and/or a domain. It's so frustrating when people fail to account for all the features that a premium membership includes. It's because of these omissions that they will argue idiotic things like I can build and host a website on another hosting company for way less. Why does WA have to be so expensive?

SMH. It's always clear to me when people make these comments that they really haven't explored all the features of WA. This could be a function of the fact that starter members have limited access to certain features at WA. So maybe they don't realize everything else a premium membership provides. Or maybe they just don't realize the value of the other features.

Either way it's highly misguided. So let me break down all the other features that are included in addition to hosting and your website. I've handpicked the ones that I feel provide a tremendous monetary value that when considered actually make the premium fee under priced. However, there are many more features that I won't cover.

Expert One on One Coaching

WA members get to tap into the knowledge of successful millionaires like Kyle and Carson to learn how to build a business. Do you know how much millionaires charge for their time assuming you can even have access to them? Well just in case you don't know it's way more than what WA charges.

Networking with other successful members

Another huge aspect of WA is the community. When you're in a pickle chances are other members have been there. And you can ask them on live chat or post a blog and they will come to your rescue. Many of the members are successful business people that are making 6-7 figures with their own business. And they're willing to share their advice and tips.

Million Dollar Training

The training provided is exactly what others have used to build millionaire dollar businesses. It's not based on fads that don't work. The techniques are proven and it's why companies like Amazon and Google offer affiliate programs. The training helps you leverage a business model that makes companies millions of dollars every year.

Instant Help

WA provides various ways to get help. You have a technical question, you can contact site support here and they usually respond back in a few minutes. Or you can hop into live chat where there are members there 24/7 to get an answer. So as long as you know how to communicate your issues effectively, you can usually get an answer. The rare times people don't get an answer is because their questions aren't clear or their questions are in a form of a novel which requires more time to understand.

Weekly Live Classes

Aside from the basic training that teaches you how to build a business, there are 52 live classes every year. Because the internet changes so much these classes cover new topics, industry changes, etc. So you're always up to date.

Site Feedback

So sure creating a website can easily be done in a number of places. But how do you know if your site is any good? Are you going to ask your family and friends? Or would you rather get the feedback from people that have built successful money making sites. Obviously it should be the latter if you want to be successful. Well, you have access to that here.

Site Comments

So one of the things you are trained to do is write content. Without content your site is dead in the water. Google won't rank it and you won't make money. Did you know that comments under your blog posts count towards content? And WA members provide hundreds of comments every day because WA has a system that rewards users for leaving comments on your blogs? So your site can bulk up your content length and thus rank better because of the comments. When you're a new site getting quality comments can take forever. But it doesn't have to as a premium member.

By the way, no you can actually earn cash giving site comments too!

And the list can go on. I'll just stop here because you're going to be hard-pressed to find any so called hosting site that will give you any of these benefits. The reality is there is even more that comes with your premium membership. I just don't feel like babbling on about it. lol

The MYTH: It's Just A Hosting Site

So fine, let's say you want to ignore all the other things I mentioned above that come with your premium membership. Why don't I just break down the difference between what WA offers just from a hosting and domain standpoint and how much you would pay if you purchased the equivalent elsewhere?

First thing that should be noted is that you're getting managed WordPress hosting here. You're not getting just some basic hosting where they would nickle and dime to get the equivalent features you receive by default as a premium member. So you need to compare apples to apples and not apples to oranges. Too often I see people doing that and that's like comparing a bicycle to a BMW.

So with that said, let's look at what other equivalent MANAGED WORDPRESS HOSTING providers offer vs Wealthy Affiliate.


As you can see if you try to compare WA to other hosting companies that provide most of the equivalent features that WA provides you'll quickly see they fall short in many key areas. To make matters worst, they charge way more.

So the next time you want to compare WA to other hosting options, make sure its an accurate and fair comparison.

The Math Doesn't Add Up!

So as you can see, the math doesn't really add up when you have the complete picture. That said, I understand that for some folks, their financial situation just doesn't allow for them to invest in a premium membership. So I can appreciate your situation and this article isn't directed at you. For those folks you may want to check this article out.

But for the folks that really think that they're saving themselves money and getting the same benefits of WA with another cheap hosting company, you are sadly mistaken. You're actually doing yourself a disservice long term. A lot of people come back to WA realizing the grass is actually not greener on the other side. They end up wasting a lot of time and resources elsewhere. Fortunately WA is a family and we always welcome people back with open arms.

However just save yourself the trouble and be sure you really understand what you lose when you leave here. It's not just a website and hosting! I can't say that enough.

Hopefully that is clear now. What do you guys think? Do you see your investment in a WA premium membership as just a hosting fee for a website or much more?

Chime in below.

I most definitely see the value, but I am one of the few I suppose who never really questioned it. I knew it was an incredible opportunity from the start, although I've been around affiliate marketing a while, with very little success, which is why I decided it was time to join. I will say that I didn't realize just how amazing it is until I really dug in. Yes, it is disappointing that I don't have cPanel access but that's really not such a big deal. I've adapted and probably have fewer problems as a result of it. This was a great article, and is probably why you're going to Vegas! CONGRATULATIONS! I have a long way to go before I reach those levels. I'm struggling to get just one sale but I haven't really tried ads. My WA website is not even publicized yet since I want it to be perfect but I suspect that's not where you get most of your sales anyhow. You've really motivated me! I have some great ideas. Time to get busy.

Many people say this because their mind is setup on making money faster, not knowing that they have to do their home work before money can come in. Actually these people do not know the value of WA and are not aware of what is happening inside the WA program.

Thank you for the great blog post-Eddy, I hear you 100%! It's interesting what you are saying about the hosting, I wrote this article a few months ago: I had been paying almost the same amount for my hosting as I pay for Wealthy Affiliate, so in other words, I almost have free hosting! It's a great deal, I wish I had found Wealthy Affiliate back in 2004 when I first started researching Internet marketing.

Have a wonderful day Eddy.

Sounds good. And I agree. When I jumped on the internet in the late 90s / early 2000s I knew it was a game changer. And I was right. It's changed my life and many millions of people and will continue to do so. If people are willing to learn and apply what they learn they can have great success online. It's the great equalizer.

Hello Eddy, very true words! I guess when you first started online it must have been exceptionally difficult, I started researching making money online in 2004, which was when I first had my broadband connection. This to me changed the face of the Internet, with the old-fashioned dial-up I found the Internet exceptionally slow and almost unusable, but as soon as Broadbent came I saw the huge and absolutely massive potential that it brought!

It took me three years before I actually had my first moneymaking website up and running, I was working so blind, if only I had known about Wealthy Affiliate back in 2004 it would have made life a lot easier and saved me thousands!

It's really great and so encouraging Eddy that you have achieved so much, well done and huge congratulations, especially for starting so early in the.com years.

Enjoy your Friday.

I was just thinking the same thing recently when seeing people say it is expensive.

Compared to other places this is EXTREMELY good value for money.

I for example just recently tested a training program that usually sells for $1000. There all you got was access to 2 hours of superficial video training. In addition to this, you had to buy hosting for $49 per month and another tool for $100 per month. You also cannot ask any questions or get any support.

When people say WA is expensive it is because they have not seen what else is out there and have not explored the full potential here.

As you also just wrote about the other day, the educational aspect of WA alone is worth far more as it gives you skills to get some great freelance job where you can make back a yearly investment in less than a day.

Great to get some perspective for this Eddy, so thanks for the post.

What you get here in the form of hands-on training via video cannot be matched by any degree which requires 4 years of schooling.

After the schooling is complete a person has to still go get hands-on training just to get a job in their desired field. I know because I sat in such a class for 4 years.

When I landed at WA I was off with a running start. My money spent here has much more value than the money I spent on a degree which I did not even use.

Thank you for the in-depth explanation.

Hi Eddy ... best value business, anywhere. I recall the old saying "you can lead a horse to water ... but you can't make it drink" People have to take the initiative and do the training and build websites and they will see the real value of this business opportunity.
As for it being an MLM (earlier comment)... It is so far from being one of those (I have been there done that, never again). I have websites that don't sell WA ... and one that does ... that's my choice.

I totally agree with you James. And the nonsense about this being an MLM is clearly off base. Anyone that has been part of an MLM knows this is nothing like it. But people like to resort to name calling when they're upset. Its the new norm in our society now. lol

$300 seems like a lot. At least that's what my wife said (after I told her I already bought the premium plan). I honestly don't think it's a lot of money, considering the vast amount of educational resources available here, which continually grow without additional fees.

I look at it like this. If I don't earn my money back after a year of this, then both WA and I have failed, and I won't continue my membership. However, either way, I see it as a win for me, because I will have learned so much from the information available and from networking with all of these helpful experts here. I will have become much wiser in the affiliate game, whether I stay here or not. You can't beat the lessons learned for such a small investment.

EddySalomon Premium
Yeah, again on face value when people don't account for all that is included and what the education and tools can lead to, it may seem expensive. But when you have the full picture, then you realize it's actually a huge discount for the reasons I mentioned above and here: But clearly you understand that. And eventually your wife will as well. It took my friends and family a while to see the potential. And now they all want me to teach them. lol

Compared the amount of money that can be made with the tools, training, and networking offered here, $300 is a drop in the bucket. And I'm completely broke! Haha I had to convince my little brother to pay for my membership, but I've only been here for 30 days and I've already made my first dollar: only 299 left to break even!

As always Eddy, I love your analogies. I used to be a person who couldn't afford WA at first. But that was because I had to pay off a course I was already doing that cost me a lot of money to learn very little. Even though it did lead me to look at internet marketing to begin with, the value stopped there because it was all theory and taught nothing about how to apply it. It cost me a lot more in a one time cost than WA has cost me in the entire time I have been a WA yearly premium member so far and I still have not finished that course because I found it to be full of speakers advocating their own courses and offered tidbits of information. It was very frustrating when I could see how much more WA had to offer but I had to wait to pay that off so I could allocate the money I was paying to the course towards WA premium membership. It was a very happy day when I finished paying for that course and I have never looked back and never questioned the cost of WA! For me, one of my own personal reasons I value it so much here, is that there a so many levels of information and training in terms of all kinds of ways to make money online. It is not only limited to affiliate marketing. So it broadens our horizons in so many ways.

Hey Ange, Thanks for sharing your personal experience. I've heard a lot of people that get caught up in other courses that cost way more and don't provide anywhere near the value of WA. So your story is a common one for others.

Me too! It was during my early efforts to find out how to improve my financial circumstances by getting a financial education. I still learned some important information, some of which I will go back to such as learning more about investing, but unfortunately you need money first to invest and I didn't have that at the time, so I needed to find a way to earn money. So even though it cost me a lot of money, I'm still grateful to that course because that is where I started to see that making money online was possible and also within reach. I just wish the cost of learning that was a bit cheaper. LOL

Yo I upgraded to a yearly membership recently (not even finished with my first month here haha) and I don't regret it one bit.
I got 25 ".com" domains to host.
I got 25 ".siterubix.com" sub-domains to host.
I've got unlimited access to Jaxxy to find the best keywords.
I've got weekly live webinars to attend.
I've got training modules for affiliate marketing (Online Entrepreneur Certification).
I've got training modules for Multi Level Marketing (Affiliate Boot camp).
I've got live chat, a help center, access to the ambassador program, etc.
This is THE place to be if you're looking for affiliate marketing training, tools, and networking.
I've signed up for Builderall, Affilorama, and a few other cats as well.
The only one that comes even close is Affilorama and they're still not as good as Wealthy Affiliate.
I spent $20 on an ebook from Affilorama, it was worth it.
I spent $50 on a monthly membership to Builderall, I'm regretting it a bunch already haha.
I spent $300 on a yearly membership for this place, I could not be happier with the investment.

For many years I tried different hosting sites None of them offered training a community of help a review on a website and I ranked ok on Google after having to pay to learn Adsense adwords and what was PPC PPA then learn a whole lot of other garbage because of the lack of finance to support any training from a lot of gurus I think that's what saved me learning here on WA I am paying AUD so my monthly fee is a bit higher but the value of understanding and learning from successful people is priceless I love the SEO tools here it really makes you think outside the box for key words or affiliate sites I feel so privileged to be part of WA Thank you to everyone here that makes WA make wealthy Affiliates :)

For the post I know that WA is a jewel to be found its a gold mind when I found out I can have 25 websites and 25 domain names say nothing more, I been to other hosting sites they don't offer half as much as WA.

I only been on here for 2 months you didn't have talk me into even paying the $49.00 a month I said sign me up, I was here 2 days checking it out, online checking it out, 3 day I went premium I want everything. This is my investment and I will get a return...

Hi there Eddy,

Couldn't agree more. Your insightful comments explain everything, and I mean everything (warts and all). That's what members new and old need take into consideration.

Going back a while, I was a premium member but got bogged down, confused, and as a result, slipped off the edge, which by the way had nothing to do with WA nor the training other than to say it was my fault for not looking at the bigger picture and what it takes to achieve success .

I'm now back with a much clearer head realising that if I'm going to make money online. Then this is the place to be.

After all, with all the training aids available I can say without hesitation. Here at WA, if you keep your head down and stay entirely focused the seeds of success will happen.

Like Kyle keeps saying nothing of any magnitude happens overnight. All businesses need time to develop and carries a no time limit tag.

So, by sticking at your goal mixed with perseverance determination and a good dose of never give up attitude. Things will happen.

No scam here. We are blessed to have owners who are caring like Kyle and Carson! I am sure if they wanted to they could walk away and never have to worry about their families financial security for generations.’Yet they want us to be successful. 49.00 dollars per mo.please!

Great post-Eddy and the way you have explained it is awesome. You do get more with WA but it is also the people you meet here that is important because we are more than just a community we are a family that has alot going for it.

Yes, we can spend the monthly membership fee or we can go yearly right now some of us can't do the yearly so we do the monthly and then some of us can do the yearly which is great.

This program has something that none of the other programs have and that is integrity, honesty, values, and we don't steer people in the wrong direction. We tell everything up front and that is what makes us different from the other programs.

The fool says "it's too much money", the wise man says "I can't afford it", the Entrepreneur says "what can I do to get it?".

You have to think like an Entrepreneur and realize value versus cost and set out to come up with the investment. Money comes with this, you aren't buying dinner for two this is a business you can build for less than the cost of electricity for one month in your own store, restaurant, or even small office.

It’s rather unfortunate that some people don’t see how awesome wealthyaffiliate is. Those that really know the benefits of wealthyaffiliate are those that have been with them for a while.
I have been with wealthyaffiliate for about 6 weeks and I can tell you that it was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life to become a member of this awesome platform.
I know that success won’t come from just one months work or even two or three months but I am in all the way.
Anyone that becomes a member of wealthyaffiliate is suppose to be here for the amazing opportunities present in the platform.
Everything that is been promised in this platform would be delivered as long as you play your part and do the work that is needed to be done.
So my message for those saying the fee is not worth it is that they should take their time and immerse themselves into the training and the platform and give themselves a little time for their hardwork to start to pay if.

Where is this alleged 1 on 1 coaching? Because my referrer has never sent me anything other than generic messages. Ever. The tools are out there, but not all of us know how to use the tools. Not all of us stay on track and when we get lost, there's no where to ask for help or express frustration without TOP100 people talking to you like you're an idiot. I never thought WA was "so damned expensive," but I do feel like I needed help and when I felt like giving up, negativity is what was thrown at me by the top people.

There are over 1800 experts within the community offering help 24/7 so maybe you need to think a little further and ask some of these great people
Just a thought
The training, the search box at the top of the page, the live videos every week, the recorded training, the experts- In fact everything you will ever need is here
I hope if you decide to stay you do the training as this really is the best you will ever get especially for the ridiculously cheap price premium members pay
Go well with your decision

Hi Christina, Carson here (co-owner of WA).

I'm here and ready at any time to help you out if you have questions, need a hand with your website, or are getting stuck with something. You can send me a Private Message direct to my inbox, or you can drop me a note on my Profile and I can help from there. You've got Me, Kyle, and 1000's of people you can reach out to. Your referrer is one person of 1.6 million people here at WA, so we're all here to help you and everyone started out at one point or another with little to no knowledge of how online business and internet marketing worked.

DO NOT be afraid to ask questions - if you ever feel like you don't understand an answer, ask for clarification and I'm willing to bet that many people will help out with answers.

Cheers,

Carson

You probably should finish reading the post. But that being said, you're not limited to the person that referred you. I totally get that some of the people that refer others aren't the best support. But that's why WA is a community. If i don't understand something or some one does a better job of explaining something, I just reach out to them.

There is help if you look for it. I've never received help from the person that referred me. But I have received plenty of help from other members that didn't. So I feel WA is like any tool, if you really want to use it you can. Some people just use it better than others. But the help is there.

I discuss the many ways you can get help here and why people don't get: So you may want to read it to see if it improves your experience here on WA.

Thanks Carson, I got lost along the way and it is VERY frustrating. I have buyers remorse about the money I've spent here and some people were helpful to point me in the right direction and some people made me feel really stupid, so this community just isn't what I believed i was 11 months ago. It's a huge let down. You have so MANY amazing tools here. I just missed the mark and got lost. Basically, most people have told me to restart the training and I intended to. But when you've spent almost 1000 in a year.... it's overwhelming.

Hi Christina,

I can totally understand, but that's the beauty of an online community, you can start the training over, you can watch the webinars over and over, you can ask the same question 10x if you need to. There's no limit to the support and help you can get.

If you got stuck, no problem, we'll help you get un-stuck. My suggestion is to always ask for clarification if you don't fully understand something before moving forward. Then you'll always know that as you move along in the training from lesson to lesson, that you fully "get" what we're teaching from previous lessons.

Shoot me a PM at any time, I'll be more than happy to clarify things for you or steer you in the right direction.

Focus on what is ahead vs what is in the rear view mirror. Get our website up and running, get some traffic, and earn back what you've invested plus get yourself into the Green. You can do this and we're all behind you.

Carson
