What Do We Get For Premium Membership?
Last Update: Sep 19, 2016
Or, is Wealthy Affiliate Really Worth it?
One of the first things that people always ask about when you bring up (in person, anyway) Wealthy Affiliate is what are they getting if they go premium? I always mention that it is free to start, but people ask how long the trial lasts and then how much it costs for premium access. There's no point in sugar coating it, so I tell them up front.
If they are new to affiliate marketing / internet marketing then they start out with absolutely no idea what it costs to start and maintain an internet website with a custom domain, hosting, etc.. They don't have any idea how to build the site properly, find the right keywords to target, and implement a traffic strategy that can help them earn income through affiliate marketing.
So, when talking a person who is brand new to internet marketing, what do you say? Here are the things that I point out.
Managed WordPress Hosting
- The monthly premium starts with some excellent Managed WordPress Hosting, the emphasis here is on managed. Why? Because for the new person getting into affiliate / internet marketing, they need as much help as they can get while they are actually learning the ins and outs of building a business online. This means managed, worry-free, hosting. This comparison chart is a great tool to use.
Step by step, look at the features and benefits and note the ones that come standard with WA, but cost extra with some of the top managed WordPress hosting providers out there. Now remember, this is JUST the hosting side of things.
Solid Stats Mean WA Has Our Back
Also, I point out the following excellent stats. Quite frankly, the feeling of security and excellent support you get just can't be beat anywhere else, no matter the cost. Here are a few of those stats:
- Age range of people that have built sites using Wealthy Affiliate: 8 to 97
- Average time to build a site: 34 seconds
- Templates Available: 3,000+
- WA defeated 27,195,900+ hacking attempts this year
- WA has 99.99% average uptime for websites hosted here
- Support is available 24/7/365 and the average response time is 1 minute (yes, you read that right, and I can personally vouch for the support team!)
See what I mean? You cannot beat the hosting service that comes through Wealthy Affiliate. But what else do we get for our $49 per month? If that isn't good enough (and that alone would be!), we get the core of what Wealthy Affiliate is really all about: learning how to build an affiliate marketing empire of your own. It's almost like a season of Mission: Impossible, but there's no denying the mission here and the potential to change your life is real. The education you can get here is the real deal. No fluff. No BS. Straight up learning what it really takes to make it online.
Education and Community Are Core Essentials
Our community of over 580,000 members is active 24/7 with live chat, members helping members. We have five Certification Courses that will teach you what you need to do to succeed. Step-by-Step, with video instructions from Kyle, it's awesome. There is also the Affiliate Bootcamp which will teach someone how to build their WA affiliate site from the ground up and become a successful WA affiliate. Want to go to Vegas on WA's dime (me too!)? This is how we do it.
As if that wasn't enough, there is a weekly LIVE training webinar every Friday on a specific topic. If you can't attend, all live training is archived, so you can watch it any time you want. As of this writing, there are over 200 live training sessions available to check out.
So, the next time someone looks at you and asks, "Yeah, but what do I actually get for my $49 per month?" you can feel confident in telling them they get a whole lot more than they will get anywhere else!
PS - There are really even more tools than this, when you consider the Keyword Tool, Rapid Writer, Link Tracking, etc..
(Note: you can find links to the pages where these stats are from, as well as the chart used in this blog post at Kyle's blot post here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/kyle/blog/a-new-de...)
...How do you know there were 27 million hacking attempts?
In the note in parenthesis, I link to a blog post by Kyle where he shares new Facebook friendly links. One goes here (http://www.wealthyaffiliate.com/hosting/a_aid/YOURID), which is where most of the stats I shared come from.
Looks like that URL is including the parenthesis, so just take it off:
Love this post, thanks so much!
