Let's take a step back 12.5 years. Carson and I, independently successful within the affiliate marketing space, decided to launch Wealthy Affiliate, at the time a keyword list website.
At the time, we knew the value of keywords to our businesses. They are the fundamental starting point of every search, and if we could help people understand which keywords were good (and handpick some awesome ones for them), we knew we could help people be successful.
Each and every month we would deliver a list of keywords targeting a brand new niche/segment. It was a simple service, simple platform, and the price was affordable. It was $29.99 per month, or $359.88 per year respective.
Well, it worked. People succeeded. People loved Wealthy Affiliate. People started to recommend our service.
Then something interesting happened.
As I am sitting here recording new videos for our new UX at Wealthy Affiliate, it brought back memories to the days when Wealthy Affiliate was a simple keyword list website.
Within the new UX, under Research (which is essentially all the Jaaxy features) we have a Niche Keyword List section. See below.
This is what WA was 13 years ago.
We didn't offer anything to do with websites. No hosting. No personal support. No way to communicate or engage. No training platform. No live classes. No research/keyword tools. No coaching. No live chat.
We are a keyword list membership site. Nothing more.
That is precisely what Wealthy Affiliate members were paying $359.88 per year for, and were incredibly happy with it. Our members at the time felt they are getting a great deal.
Fast forward 13 years...
And this is one TINY component of what is offered here. I would say that the Niche Keyword List platform is 1/1000th of the membership offering, yet one thing has remained consistent... our pricing. Our premium membership is actually now LESS than it was, at $359.00 per year!
This also reminded me how far we have come, how much we have evolved, and truly how many lives have been positively impacted by WA over the course of the last 13 years (almost).
It also excites me how much we have left to accomplish, although we are synonymous in the affiliate marketing world as THE place to create, grow, and manage an affiliate marketing business, we feel as though we are just getting started.
We are weeks away from our new UX (User Experience) at WA.
This is going to be an innovative new foundation for you to run you business(es) from, and it is going to lead to many new technological advancements, community improvements, streamline all levels of support, and subsequently more success.
We care about you. We care about you business. We care about you success.
Let the exciting times roll on!
