Just went yearly with the Black Friday special!
On November 6, 2017 I came across Wealthy Affiliate. I don't even remember how. I wasn't searching for anything, but I had previously watched a webinar on freelance marketing secrets. I came upon this webinar from a video clip at the beginning of a YouTube video I was going to watch. I usually skip the ads (don't we all?) but this one I watched and it caught my attention. but from there I didn't think a lot about it because I thought it was too much upfront with no guarantee.
Once I saw that at WA I could do EVERYTHING free, THAT really caught my attention. I signed up and started going through the training. I will admit that I quickly realized the benefits of going premium, and if I was going to invest my time in doing this, I want every little extra I can get. So I took advantage of the $19 first month membership committing to $49 a month thereafter.
So I dove into the training excitedly awaiting each new lesson. I purchased my first domain even though I know I could've stayed with the siterubix website I already had. I made a website specific email. It all sounds so "grown up" and business-like. I have my own business!
I have continued through my training and have been putting out content on my website. I am currently debating a second website because I have another niche I've been tossing around for awhile. I have several actually, but I know I need to concentrate for now on getting traffic to the first site.
Now WA is offering a Black Friday deal on their yearly membership and I have waited till the last minute basically deciding if I wanted to jump on it. I mean, if i am going to be dishing out $49 a month anyway trying to turn this into an actual income, I might as well go yearly and save a LOT of money. So I did! I just went yearly!
