The PREMIUM Membership - In a League of its Own!

Last Update: April 28, 2017

WA Starter vs. WA Premium, what’s the difference?The are many differences. Both membership levels are awesome. But one is awesome, and the other is “out of this world” awesome! I am about to explain both of them to you and it would be a very good idea to familiarize yourself with the unparalleled platform available here at WA.

First off, what is included in the Starter membership?

Well... to be completely honest, a whole bunch of stuff!

When you are on the Starter membership you have the online world at your fingertips. You get to truly “experience” the one-of-a-kind community and the vast training platform at Wealthy Affiliate.

If you have only been part of WA for a short period of time, I hope that you have realized just how powerful the community is, and how much we all care about helping you achieve success. We created Wealthy Affiliate to help people within the online business world and we continue to innovate and improve the service at WA for YOU. Your success is what we care about!

Before I get into how UNBELIEVABLE Premium Members have it here at WA, I want to outline exactly what you get as a Starter member.

When you are on the Starter Membership, you get full access to:

  • Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1)-This is your starting point. This is where you will get rolling, building your websites, start building online assets and you will start to understand how this whole "making money on the Internet thing" works. This course is 100% included. Make sure you take action on the tasks within each lesson and work through this course at your own pace. In the first 10 lessons alone you are going to accomplish A LOT. You will lay a solid foundation for your business to flourish.
  • Training Galore - Along with the Getting Started training mentioned above, you have access to 1,000’s of blog posts (tons of valuable ones), training tutorials and training videos. These cover an unlimited number of ways you can earn revenue online once you understand the basics.
  • TWO Free Websites - All Starter Members get access to our acclaimed Wordpress Express website builder and have the luxury of building not ONE, but TWO fully functional websites. AND, we completely host these sites for you for as long as you want on our state of the art hosting platform!
  • The Awesome WA Community - There is nothing better than being able to mingle and network with fellow aspiring and highly successful entrepreneurs. You can chat, post comments, and interact with fellow members here at WA. This means that you can ask questions if you need help or you can help others if you know the answer to their question. It is a truly a pay it forward community here at WA!
  • Business Networking - Network, network, network! You hear this all the time. Networking leads to success and you have the most successful group of Internet marketers here in the world that you can network with, follow, get followed by, and interact with. If you have not set-up your profile yet, make sure you do. Having an image and description attached to your account will get you much greater response, more help, and help you move forward faster.
  • The Ability to Create - You can become a creator at Wealthy Affiliate. This includes the ability to connect to people through your own blog posts. Feel free to create a blog post here at WA and share what is on your mind. Questions, comments, achievements, can be anything (just no shameless promotions!). This is a community where we share in our progress towards inevitable success!
  • The WA Affiliate Program $$ - You can share any blog post, any training module, or any profile here with the Share Buttons or the Affiliate Links and get revenue for anybody that signs up through that link. We offer one of the highest paying affiliate programs online! Share the content you enjoy on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, your website or via email and get rewarded! You have full access to the WA affiliate program which can lead to a recurring income stream.
All of the above is included with your Starter membership! This is truly a remarkable set of tools and resources and this is far beyond anything you would get elsewhere. Remember, the WA Starter membership is without any costs and no time restrictions. Pretty cool right?! :)

I truly believe that you are going to achieve things you never thought were possible here within WA! You realize the massive value in being part of WA and this will continue to become evident through the constant improvements and innovates you will see. Not to mention the awesome community of helpful people that you can connect with and create solid business relationships with!

Although this might already seem like a ton we are offering, what we offer Premium members is the nothing short of unbelievable....YES, UNBELIEVABLE!

The Premium Membership Takes You Next Level!

First, let’s get the price out of the way. I don’t want there to be any secrets about the “paid” aspect of Wealthy Affiliate. There are two payment options for WA Premium. A month-to-month membership and a yearly membership (paid once per year).

Monthly = $49 per month ($1.62 per day)
Yearly = $359 per year ($0.98 per day!)

One thing that few people realize is that the yearly price is the exact same price that we offered in 2005. Although we have invested and continue to invest millions annually into improvements here at WA for Premium members, we have not increased the yearly price.

The yearly option gives you a Premium membership for under $1 per day. The $49 option is a great value too - we're offering the most complete program in the industry for less than a cup of coffee per day. If you have looked around online it is completely evident that there is NOTHING that compares to this. WA Premium membership is in a league of it's own - this is a fact.

===> Be Great, Get Premium! Upgrade Here.

We want to keep the BEST Online Business Community on the Internet the MOST affordable. We realize that in challenging economic times not everyone has a ton of extra cash.

But we do have operating expenses and to run the sophisticated WA machine and keep it well oiled, there is a very large team of people at work. So we do have to charge something and our charge is 1/1000th of any University or College out there. The crazy thing is that our training and offering also far exceeds anything out there! There is NO institution that has the ability to evolve quickly, remain current, and push ahead like we can here at Wealthy Affiliate.

We teach Internet Business techniques and strategies that work, not theory based mumbo jumbo. Becoming a premium member is a decision you are going to have to make on your own. You want to make a choice that is right for you.

I can tell you though, the PERKS of becoming a Premium member are many. It is incredibly powerful to have everything at your fingertips and in one place that you can call your home for online business.

The 9 MASSIVE Perks of Becoming a Premium Member...

PREMIUM PERK #1: Private Access to Get Personal Mentoring From Kyle & Carson

The WA keyword tool pulls data from all of the major search engines (Google, Bing and Yahoo) and it also allows you get access ‘competition” data which is the ultimate metric for finding valuable keywords.

As a premium member you have UNLIMITED access to this tool, meaning you could do as much research as you like throughout the month...research yourself crazy if you want!

You know what I appreciate also, besides everything listed by Kyle above...? (which is mind boggling in value) I love the fact that there are no up sells. No feeling uneasy because you don't know if up ahead a short way you might have to trade your soul for a necessary peanut!
TJCannefax Premium
I have watched other webinars online on how to make money from home selling products only to find at the end of the webinar they want so much money that a person who is on a tight budget can't spend what they are asking for. Wealthy Affiliates have
made it very affordable. Thank you for that! The trainings have been easy to follow. The community here have been friendly and helpful. It's great to be here and I believe by upgrading to Premium Membership, I just opened the door to a successful future.

Thanks again for the opportunity!

bhatnikhil Premium
As I understand that you subscribe to premium services only if you plan to keep it for some time as it is not possible to go back to your free account if you cancel your premium membership. What happens if I restart my premium membership after a few months after I have cancelled it. Thanks in advance
bhatnikhil Premium
I would like to check that I want to apply for a monthly premium membership (which is now SGD 49/month). Is it possible to cancel the premium membership at any point of time, I mean after 2 months if i wish to cancel my monthly membership, is it possible to cancel?. Thanks
JohnCrossley Premium
You can cancel if and when you choose to. But please note that if you buy a domain, you would have 30 days to move it to another web hosting.

But no one stops you leaving if you feel it isn't for you


BvVugt Premium
You can stop at any time, but you can not go back to a free account. So if you stop your Premium account, you leave WA and you'll lose the free siterubix-domains. You can take your bought domains with you to another provider.

So I'd advise to only go Premium is you know you can afford it for a longer time.
bhatnikhil Premium
Thanks John for your time in answering my query. Best Regards
bhatnikhil Premium
Thanks for your answer. So does that mean if I cancel my premium membership and after a few months I restart my premium membership, I have to start all over again?
trymetoday Premium
The amount of training and help from everyone at Wealthy Affiliates puts you on the right road to success, there is just so much to learn and you do it all in your own time, building a business takes time, doing from your own home is a great bonus, leave the daily commute behind, get yourself a serious about earning a living, stop chasing rainbows. its all here at WA.
Shalei67 Premium
Wow, I keep getting impressed more and more as I dive in-depth into these trainings - I know a lot more about than I did a few weeks ago and I'm so glad I signed up to premium membership. You can't get this kind of tools, resources, trainings and community engagement at other sites out there. So glad to keep learning here!
armandojr423 Premium
Agreed. Premium is definitely a no brainer. I've been online for a long time, since 2006. Wealthy Affiliates -by far- offers the most comprehensive training and tools to build an online business. Even at my knowledge level, I am going through every single step from step 1 on all the way through.

There is always something that one can improve on, no matter how great you are at it, so, to me, if I went through this entire program and only found 1 nugget, it would be worth it (I am 100% certain I will find 10s of 10s if not 100s of nuggets).

The other thing I really can't get over is the community here. "You are who you hang around with" and other than big marketing/affiliate events, where else can you find like-minded people like you can here at WA?

Push on. It can take some people months or even years to earn money online but it is so worth it in the end.
amorelos Premium
I'm already enroll in another paid training program because that;s the first one I found after listening to a podcast. Then from that one I found WA by searching for some information and from the begging I was surprised for the quality of the training for FREE! I love the step by step instructions given by Kyle which allows me to learn at my own pace and practicing as many a=times as I need to understand every lesson, and since that was so good I decided to become Premium member, I know I'm gong to learn a lot more and in time I will reach one of my goals: make $100 a week o at least a month!. Thank you.
N33 Premium
Welcome aboard. I know you will not be disappointed.

Wishing you much pleasure with the training and a lot of success.
Akpozy Premium
Amorelos, you come across as a person that always does the right thing.

WA is a wonderful place to be.

Success in your endeavour.

LornaF Premium
I've already upgraded, but I want to say that I'm happy that I did.

Unlike other platforms that I won't name, where I felt I was stuck in one place, since being a premium member on WA, I've made real progress. Another thing in their favor is that the level of customer service offered here is amazing!

So, I'm looking forward to making significant progress in the weeks and months ahead. My family and friends are going to be amazed!
I finally completed level 1 training and must say that i am impressed with the amount of quality information i learned from this site. Sadly I wont be able to upgrade to premium right now but would love to upgrade at some point. If i can make some revenue with the website i created here at WA I will be able to pay for premium quicker than i thought.
JasonCleon Premium
I've enjoyed the all the help I've received, and the instant feed back is amazing! I think I'm a little more than green now, ha ha. I would have probably given up without the feed back. Thanks WA Community! Going premium is important! Besides we throw that money away monthly. Why not invest it? Invest in you! You've got this!
Felistusk Premium
You are so lovely guys.I lost track 3 years ago when i joined and left imagining it may not be real.But now am convinced above every doubt.Better still I have access now to a laptop and internet connection which I didn't have back then.I love you good people. I have upgraded to premium
Thanks all
Smittyroc06 Premium
I see that the pitch at being a premium member is far greater than the starter. My initial goal is simple, moke my first $1.00 online, after that it goes up. I have come up short so many times it not funny. I only want to make one site convert, then I will not stop until my first goal is reached. So, how will I monetize what I have, then venture on to multiple websites?
Vickic3 Premium
Hi Gregory
Yes, the premium is the way to go and this time, stay focused and work hard and don't stop
You can become very successful online by learning everything WA offers so go for it and work really hard my friend
This is the path to Success Online
Julie1968 Premium
It was a no-brainer. It's a lot of money for some of us that haven't started earning yet but it is living proof of the saying, you have to spend money to earn money. I decided it made sense to go all in from the start so as not to waste time and resources. I don't regret it for one second and I love the platform. I have high hopes.
SimeonDixon1 Premium
Sounds good Lulie. Stay positive.
danpubs Premium
Just finished Stage 1 at the end of my first week as a WA premium member. Really looking forward to getting on with the next stage because beyond this first section is where my weakness lies !!
Very impressed with how everything is done and explained so well here.
Looing forward to moving forward and anticipating topping up the old pension pot in the weeks and months to come
Yours Truly
Ron (The Old Fella)
Once I begin making anything, I plan on becoming a member. But so far, I've created many posts, and a full fledge niche website along side of that. Unfortunately, I think only a week is not long enough to generate any sales. I will stay in touch until I do, however, I am eager to continue.
Twinsmother Premium
Welcome to WA Andrew. I am still struggling with a website I started last year. I know it should have been finished but I feel intimidated by the setup of it. The theme has been changed several times. I have come again to complete the task of starting and finishing at least the three main pages. Here's hoping I can do this on my own. Suggestions are welcomed.
jayccel Premium
What I have learned, being new, is to review a subject a few times if the information is not clear. I understood some easily while others gave me the "what the ??" expression on my face lol. Best tool in here is the access to all the members for asking questions. Keep asking questions :)
churchbells8 Premium
Wow. I'm finished with my 1st certification on everything from beginning to understand how to do niches research to put your face on a website to putting color in a website, to understanding the alphabets of choosing your words to draw people to your websites through your niches, from forming your website so people will know where to find you to your welcome part of your website, to your web search for your different niches how to pay attention to your niches how to add more contain to them through jaanux I think that's how you spell it, talking about knowledge It's blowing my mind also founding out that we can screenshot things so we will not get in trouble down the road I never knew how to do my own privacy page I do now. WOW. Now I'm starting part 2 Watch out community here I come you have been a great blessing to me thanks everyone. Don't forget your premium new people I had to and having fun with it.

I DID IT! OMG I Actually DID IT! I made it through the first ten sections of part 1. This is the MOST STUFF I'VE EVER ACCOMPLISHED IN 10 years of being online trying to create a business I can run from Home.
I'm BLASTED JOYFULL! + The Cat Is So dang Proud of me 2.
Thanks you guys this is frign AWES!
so I have finished the first stage of training do I have to upgrade to get the rest of the training modules? secondly it appears to me that this program is geared toward blogging am I correct or am I misunderstanding? Where do you go to buy products for your site (kind of like FBA) and can this system be used when posting links for other companies. I do not want to have to buy and sell. I hope this comment makes sense. Thank you in advance
MikaelM Premium
Hi Cynthia,

not sure I understand all your questions but I can try to answer as good as I can.

Yes if you have taken all 10 lessons in level 1, you have to upgrade to continue. However, there is only one upgrade and after that you get full access to all the training here and there are no hidden extra upsells or hidden costs.

You learn a lot about blogging here because it is a great way to get traffic to your website. But the training here will also teach you how you in general do SEO and rank in the search engines + internet marketing in general. So many people also use it to promote local business etc.

Personally, I am also using a lot of the skills I have learned here to work as a freelancer within different areas of online marketing.

I am not sure what you mean about where you go to buy products for your site? But you do definitely not have to buy any products to sell them on your site. You will learn about affiliate marketing, which means you can earn commissions from links on your website without having to buy and sell the products yourself.

Hope this answers your questions.

All the best,
TommyPotter Premium
For the first question, yes you have to upgrade to Premium for getting access to the remaining four levels of training.

Regarding the second one, the foundation of your business is your website, and the core of this website is the blog because it will keep the whole site live, active and interact on the internet. However, it is not about just chatting but bringing useful information to people for solving problems. One way to solve some problems is leading them to where they can find what they are looking for and buy them or subscribe to it or enroll to it, etc. and then you get revenue for that.

You can sell your own or someone else's products or services on your website, but you don't need to if you don't want. That's why the power of the affiliates systems and you can take advantage of them without being yourself a seller.
Thank you for your reply it helps clarify some of the confusion for me.
Mikael thank you for your reply, My statement regarding where do you go to get your products was geared toward an FBA account which I have also looked into. I am learning a great deal of valuable information here and I appreciate all the help. I like the model of the affiliate marketing program because, affiliate marketing has a low start up cost making it easier for the average Joe to get up and running along with the training tools provided by WA.
Jmihedji Premium
Can we make a way to LOVE posts as well, because that's how I feel !!! Anyone with common sense can tell you that the value is AMAZING!!! Thank you Kyle & Carson for all the opportunities you provide, and I am truly gratefully for all the networking opportunities I have with the community.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you !!!

Hi Jefrey
Sounds like you are ready to upgrade to Premium.
hanley Premium
Hi . I have used the course principally to learn how to run my main business. While they call it the Wealthy Affiliate I think it is misnamed. It has the best hosting package available anywhere at a small price. The training is excellent and free. The weekly download is usually business based and an example is the latest series on sending emails. This can apply to anything you want to do.
I have been sending emails for years and only this week added my personality to them,
Jaaxxy free is a great tool as well.

On top of all that you may be able to make a referral dollar along the way.
What's not to like.
Lukcrative Premium
When it comes to upgrading to premium, whether it be the monthly or yearly plan, will money be taken out of my bank account the moment I’m officially signed up or does joining take out money from my bank account when it’s time to renew my monthly/yearly plan?

Also, if I were to get premium despite the lack of consistent funds, is it likely that I would have made enough money from sells to actually be able to afford premium by the time it's time to renew my premium plan?
CJDodaro Premium
When signing up to Premium, funds will be taken out of your account automatically on your anniversary date, whether monthly or yearly.

As far as earnings, it will probably take you 6 months to a year to start earning enough to cover your membership fees.
Melissa901 Premium
I think CJDodaro explained it pretty well. But under your profile picture is where your account settings is if you would like to look a little more.
N33 Premium
I hear you !

Please consider the following before taking a decision : Kindly
laurenjean Premium
Hi Kurt, your first $19 dollars for the first month will be taken from your account as you go Premium. Then you will be billed $49 monthly until you choose to go Yearly. Yearly works out so much cheaper, so it's really great if you can find the money somewhere to go Yearly after your first month.
It also gives you a full year to build content, without having to worry about payments.
Income projections are tricky because it's different for everybody as everyone builds at a different pace. Your income will depend on whether you follow the training set out here and build out your site accordingly. How much time you put into your business.
In my case, my hubby paid my first yearly payment for me (after 7 months of monthly payments) and by the time my 2nd yearly payment became due, my website income covered it. YAY!! I've seen people make money here much sooner than me.
CJDodaro Premium
Nice add-on. Yes, after clicking on your Profile pic and choosing Account Settings, you can check your payment dates.
TopCat66 Premium
At least that is a very honest answer... I have been an affiliate with another program and chose to invest in it. After 3 years of paying a certain amount per month (for which I got a lot in return, but very little moneywise) I have decided to look further because I have put a lot of effort into it without getting that much ahead... on the other hand I have gotten a lot of useful experience and the blogs I created I can use for this program and other affiliate programs as well.... and then again I have had a real-world business and it cost me 7 years till break-even. A year seems really good by comparison. I hope it will be much more than just break-even though..... am really excited!
CJDodaro Premium
I am sure some programs are designed to string you along, collecting more 'dues' in the process. This one, however, does not do that, and is constantly updated with the latest info.

Best of luck.

cockeye1 Premium
Ok I done it became a premium member if anyone out there wants to throw me some advice I will be great full I don't have much web experience so any advice is better than none so anyway I'm excited and thanks to WA for giving people like me a chance to improve my lie
LindaMarie55 Premium
I'm so excited...I'm ready to upgrade to premium :) but before I sign up, I have a question...If I start with the first month @ $19, in one month can I switch to the one year membership?

update an hour later...I just clicked on the link to upgrade to premium, and it doesn't actually offer the option of a one year membership....I've read through a lot of the comments below, but I haven't seen anyone else asking about this...I feel like I'm missing something ( and the clock is ticking, so any help on the topic would be much appreciated :)
VeronicasLuv Premium
Hey Linda,

Go into Account Settings, to get there, click the arrow right under your profile pic that appears n teh upper right corner, it's the 2nd option from the top.

Next, select Subscription Settings, there should be an option on whether you want to subscribe as a monthly or yearly member; since I am already a yearly member, it just shows my next billing date for Nov. 2018.

Hopefully, this helps. All the best, Linda.
LindaMarie55 Premium
Thanks for your response, Veronica:) I went ahead and upgraded for $19 for the first month, and now the red 'upgrade to Yearly' button (under jaaxy) is visible, so all is well:)
VeronicasLuv Premium
OraCharoite Premium
I had that same question, thanks for asking it in the first place...I want to upgrade too and do the yearly value for money if you are fully committed etc and intend to keep going...anyhow thanks, now I have the answer to the question for when I am ready to upgrade...all very exciting! :)
Tammy1968 Premium
I am now going to lesson 10. I upgraded to premium a few days ago because what I have learned so far from Kyle is making this exciting for me and wanting to know more. The price is great and the lessons are easy to follow. I've checked other sites out that want thousands of dollars...who has that sitting around? I've sat through 'free' online courses, that don't even come close to what I've learned on this site. The knowledge I've gained so far has put me on the path I've wanted for a long time.
sjbriscoe72 Premium
Well, I'm now on lesson 10 of level one! I loved lesson 9 Jaaxy is awesome! I had so much fun that I had to play around with it and check it out. Can't wait to see whats next. I'm learning so much!

I told myself if I could build my site, have my niche and find affiliate products and Jaaxy was looking the way you suggested with the QSR and Average Searches were less than 100...that I would do this..My site is up and running...Now for the next part of training.

We entrepreneurs want to be's are impatient...I told myself to slow down and when feeling overwhelmed, to walk away and go back at it later...So, here goes...

How are you doing? I have purchased my domain and getting ready to produce first proper posts...
How about you?
phildora Premium
I agree! Take it step by step, repeat the training and tasks for clarity and then go for it!
Shweta10mg Premium
Me too you are also definitely very diligent. I’ve got to do a topic post . I finished my about me, privacy policy and statement post but the topics begin. Sort of like this formal thing with me lol. I’m also having a grand time challenging my own headaches too lol

Ahhh, the self imposed pressure we put on ourselves...It 8:00 pm, time for me to get off computer...Been sitting here at least 6 hrs...See you in a few days...Tomorrow is a work day.

I strongly believe all great things come at perfect timing and I'm grateful I'm here now. Although, it would have been more awesome if I was able to come across WA way earlier, the possibility of online entrepreneurial success is clearer now that we've got access to all training materials, tools, and support from the entire community with WA premium membership. More years and successes to us! Cheers!

The premium membership definitely offers great value that I have not seen anywhere else online. As of right now I can't afford it but I will be saving little by little until I get the amount for the yearly premium membership.

I have been ripped off in other online programs but I know that Wealthy Affiliate is a legitimate online business program that delivers above and beyond in my view. With that being said I will upgrade when I have the money.
Kyle Premium
At your own pace Dennis and you are never going to get ripped off or feel ripped off again now that you have found WA.

In the meantime, work through the training and build out your website on the Starter membership. When you are ready, you can move to Premium and unlock all of the features here within WA. ;)

This platform is definitely a self pace program. I have looked at each video so much that I feel I am getting proficient at the business, as far as what I have learned so far. I have a good prospect to start. They want to see my website and it's content. So I am working like a madman to get it finished past the beginning stages. My first website has to be a piece of art. WA is the right place to get it done. Hopefully you guys will see it before they do, and I hope you tear it to pieces, even to the smallest details. I will appreciate the help. I will be ramping up to premium in a few hours. I would like to get it to the point where I can set up each site and go directly to the next. It will get easier with time. Thanks WA community. Together we will get it. Sure there is a little pressure, but I look at it as I have always looked at challenges, get it done, and get it done with unsurpassed excellence! This has always been my attitude. Note however, this train of thought is not a must. We all have different time constraints and aspirations. Rome wasn't built in a day, but neither was New York or San Francisco huh?

I realized the extended benefits with Premium the first week I became a Starter Member. Simply scouting around the community and learning more, I was hungry for even more top training. Plus, if you really are serious about your business here, and launching your new career on the internet at WA, going Premium is the best option. I became a Premium member the first week in WA and it kept me more motivated and determined to succeed. Investing time and money substantiates a solid business here! Thanks for the info.!
fetbear14 Premium
Wow, this is great; I am for the first time ever, learning to create and build a website; following instructions and learning from a great tea. My only issue for now is building the website. I may need assistance but I will stay pay attention and learn as I go. This is truly great.
PamelaMartin Premium
I Truly find this an opportunity of a lifetime. Yes, it is coming out of your comfort zone BUT how else are you to get out and go places... YOU MUST GET OUT OF THE COMFORT ZONE ... I am so Excited and looking forward to another part of my Journey of Life ... Thank You Wealthy Affiliate for having this chance to Advance My Lifes Path.
JamesAnders1 Premium
I am here. Phew! It too me a little to complete the last bit of the first course. But was willing to sit with it until I did it. I see there's nothing to be gained short cutting things.
Thanks to Kyle and Carson, what is developed here is amazing.
Kind Regards

I would have to say that this - Wealthy Affiliate - is NOT hype.

Started with AWOL. Felt like I received a high level overview of what to do that got me excited, but after all the modules, I felt a little disappointed that I would have to spend 997.00 for courses that would show me the details of how I needed to do what I needed to do next. While someone's effort to compile knowledge is valuable and shouldn't be free, sometimes the cost is just not worth the value in exchange. That experience left me feeling like the were millionaire marketers because of the prices they were asking for their courses! (The other course bundles were even more expensive than 997.00)
I'm grateful to AWOL for getting me starter and THRILLED that I found Wealthy Affiliate!
JamesAnders1 Premium
It is not Hype, I consider I have a sense for bullshit, I don't find any of it here. I have no doubt Kyle and Carson enjoy, rightfully, the fruits of their efforts. I certainly sincerely wish upon them much, much more success and wealth. As I do for all.
Do well, and exceed your own expectations.

WA and the Premium Membership is incredible and everything that I've been looking for. The content and value for money is nothing short of amazing!

I get the sense that WA and especially Kyle (having done the walk through videos) genuinely wants to help. Sure, it's a business and we all have to make money (that's mainly why we're on here, right?), but I honestly believe that making money is secondary to helping others for WA.

I'd always had the idea to create a platform in which to run my own business, but had absolutely no idea where to start. WA not only got me started, but has guided me through and keeps me on track every day.

I've only completed Part 1 and already feel somewhat of an internet marketing expert, having fully understood all the content, which is amazing, as computer stuff usually baffles me. This was why I had never started an online business until now, I thought it just "wasn't me" and wasn't my expertise.

How wrong was I after discovering WA! I can't wait to get cracking with the next 5 levels, I know that I'm going to continue to amaze myself.

WA literally walks you through the entire process. Ive just recently completed the first course and upgraded to premium. The training was awesome and easy to understand. I really liked the videos because it shows exactly what you're supposed to do and how to do it. What really amazed me was when I had an issue or a question I put it on the live chat and someone immediately helped me. Most customer service centers will send you a confirmation email and you have to wait days to get a response but we were working on it together in minutes. Love it!!!

There's nothing out there that comes close to the amount of training, information and support that is offered here for budding and even experienced internet entrepreneurs.

I have found courses out "there" that are charging THOUSANDS of dollars for nowhere near the amount of resources available here ate WA.
Kyle Premium
There is a reason we have been around 11.5 years and there is also a reason why we have not increased our prices during this time.

We evolve quickly, we continue to innovate here, yet at the core of everything we do we are in the business of helping people. If you were to try to acquire just some of the services that we offer here elsewhere, you would be looking at $1,000's per month.

And I feel we are just getting started, we have a ton of awesome stuff coming in 2017 and we already have some very significant projects slated for 2018. A bright future lies ahead for all WA'ers.
remapot3 Premium
100% True.
scurvy11 Premium
I'm frankly very surprised at the quality and comprehensiveness of the online training here! First, I didn't realize the work that would be involved for someone to try and do all of it on their own without WA essentially holding you by the hand and making sure you get it all correct. I just started last week and can already tell this is a fantastic program. I've already started telling friends and family about WA. I'm excited about the opportunity presented here.
PaulBoudreau Premium
So true, Kyle.
You have many friends here that appreciate immensely, what you and Carson offer us.
Again, a heartfelt thanks!
maesitas Premium
It is true, there is nothing that looks like this place, it is full of treasures!
heatherplude Premium
I found WA because I was looking at a course that cost $17,995 for less than what wealthy affiliate offers. I am thrilled to have found WA!!!
Merey Premium
I have realised it too late
MJanickova Premium
I just finished the basic training and I must agree with you, I am definitely going to go through the whole process
churchbells8 Premium
Me to I was in that same boat with another affiliate program and was ready to give up and found WA, it was the cheapest program out there. I can afford this one and my heart desire was to learn how to work with websites and the design of them, look what I'm doing now that very thing (you can't best this with a stick). Sign churchbells8

What do you mean Merey? Too late? For what?
jayccel Premium
Even though your comment is 8 months old, I agree with it. I did not expect this type of training, completeness in detail and quality either. I'm less then a week in, but have become addicted to learning because its been so easy to follow.
SimeonDixon1 Premium
Hi Marty. You are so right. One thoing though, it is a good thing that we have tried the rest before we get to be involve with the very best. Now we have a story to tell our new commers as they come into WA.
dolrah Premium
Know you are right.
