If You Don't pay, You Don't Pay Attention
I have been a "freebie-seeker" before.
And I must admit that I still have a little bit tendency towards that because of my old nature...
However, nowadays I'm much happier to pay for the training and education than ever before.
I've learned that investing your own money into something, will also help you to commit yourself to actually go through the training and apply it in practice.
That's one of the MANY reasons why I recommend for everyone here to upgrade to the premium membership instead of just using the free starter account.
LynneHuy also wrote recently a great post here on why it's highly recommended for you to be a premium member here at Wealthy Affiliate. If you didn't read it yet, you can check it out by clicking the following link: 12 Epic Reasons To Go Premium With WA.
"If You Don't Pay, You Don't Pay Attention."
I learned this "wisdom" recently from a successful entrepreneur.
Just think about it: How many members who just use the free account are really COMMITTED to make a life-changing income online?
Of course, people are not here just for the money that Wealthy Affiliate will help them to make. People are here also because they want to learn skills like:
- Build websites
- Get more influence online
- Do social media marketing
- Learn Internet marketing
- Learn SEO (Search Engine Optimization)
- Network with other Internet marketers
But if a person is not ready to invest even a measly $1 per day, how committed do you think he/she really is?
Personally, I've gone through lots of free and paid training courses, watched 100's of videos, webinars, etc.
I can say that on average I pay much more attention when I have needed to pay some money for that.
And based on my and other's observations, people who are willing to invest some money are much more committed on average and are going to take more action.
"The act of payment creates a sense of commitment."
Life is all about averages and probabilities.
You may study all the books and courses in the world and still not become a millionaire (for example). But your changes of becoming a millionaire are probably 100 times higher than for a person who never studies anything.
You may smoke for 40 years and not get a cancer but your probabilities for getting a lung cancer have gone much higher.
You may eat salads every day and your friend eats pizzas. The chances are that you have a much healthier body.
When you invest in a premium membrship in Wealthy Affiliate, your chances of succeeding online are at least 10 times better than just going with the free.
=> You IMMEDIATELY increase your probabilities of succeeding online when you Upgrade to Premium.
I say this from experience of being here a premium for 4 years, achieving some great results myself and seeing 1,000's of other members here coming and going.
Those who go premium, and especially use the yearly memberhsip, are MUCH more likely to achieve great things than those who are just looking for "freebies".
Therefore I have 2 friendly recommendations to you:
- Upgrade to Premium (if you still had a free membership when you are reading this)
- Upgrade to a Yearly Premium Membership (if you just had a monthly membership so far. You'll save tons of money and also increase your chances of success by being committed.)
