Small Pricing Change, Bigger Commissions - $47 to $49 Sept 13th
Well the time has come, we are increasing our price.
As discussed and validated by the WA community earlier on this year, we are going to be moving our price out of the “info product” price point to a more service based price point.
We have struggled with our price for years, we know that $7’s have the tendency to “convert” within the info product industry at a higher rate and this has proven true with any info product we have offered people. Shams and scams in the industry tend to use price points ending in 7’s and we want to move away from any association with programs like this.
But WA is not an info product, we are much more. Over the past 11 years we have moved to a service that is unparalleled in the industry. We offer an all-inclusive platform to people and businesses that are looking to create, grow and manage their businesses online. We can support a business of any size here, whether you want to run a hobby site, a local mom and pop site, an e-commerce business, managing a local marketing business, or an authority site earning 7 figures per year.
Although the move doesn’t seem drastic at all (a $2 increase), it is a very important one for us as we continue to separate ourselves with the “Internet Marketing Crowd” and push forward into the services/community/technology world.
Affiliates, Please Update Your Sites to Reflect New Price
Although a small adjustment, you should take a moment to update all of your websites and anywhere that you could potentially have the $47 price point on your site.
The ONLY change we have made is changing the recurring price from $47 to $49. This is to better align ourselves as a “service” within the industry, to create consistency amongst all of our price points here at WA and over at Jaaxy, and to move away from a “7” price point that has become synonymous with scams and shams in the industry.
We will also be updating the "Free vs. Starter grid" banner to reflect the price increase as well. If you are using the Free vs. Starter grid you will want to manually update this over the next week. Keep an eye out for this update and if you are hot linking to the HTML, no changes will be needed on your end.
Affiliate commissions will also be going up on recurring sales. The former commission was $22.50 per month recurring, the new price will be $23.50 per month. Although a small increment, these will add up!
If You are Premium Before Sept. 13th, You Are NOT Affected
If you are a current Premium member, you will be unaffected and you will retain your current pricing structure moving forward. If you are a Starter member, you will be subject to this tiny price increase moving forward.
It will not impact you in an way whatsoever. The value you get here at WA far exceeds $49, comparable hosting platforms alone to what you get included in your membership exceed $250 per month!
**If you are a Premium member before next Monday, September 13th, you will not be subject to the new price increase.
Yearly Will Remain the Same Price, $359!
You can still get our yearly price at $359 which is cheaper than when we first started Wealthy Affiliate over 10 years ago. When we started out in 2005, our yearly was $359.88. This is before we offered pretty much everything you see here within the community and were simply offered people a few hand picked “keyword lists” every month. We didn’t even have a way to communicate with us back then!
So although we continue to spend millions on the platform here at WA and continue to evolve and innovate at a faster pace than ever, you can still get our prices from 11 years ago.
Just thought we would give you a quick update here. There is TONS of awesome stuff to look forward to and we have some really big plans in the coming months with new features, new rollouts, improvements, innovations and evolutions.
2016 has been another year focused on you YOU, 2017 you can expect much more of the same. A bright future is ahead for all members here within the community.
