I had a Friend of mine on Wealthy Affiliate ask me the other day if I thought Wealthy Affiliate was worth paying $47 a month for.

My answer was of course Yes!


$47 a month is only $1.68 a day, what do you daily spend $1.68 on?

There are many ways to free up $1.68 per day, below I will list a few.

1. Drink less coffee

2. Eat less food

3. unplug small appliances while not in use

4. Shut off lights while not needed

5. Raise or lower the thermostat a few degrees

6. Drive a little slower

7. Shower with your spouse (Although at times this may actually take longer & use more water)

8. Shut off the TV cable or lower the package

9. Quit any bad habits or at least lower the amount

That is just a small list, if any of you Friends can add to that list please do so in the comment section below.

Any 1 of the above when done properly will save at least $1.68 per day.

Imagine if you were able to do more than 1 of those things, even many of those things.

I am willing to bet that if you did a few of the above that you could not only afford to pay the $1.68 a day but that you would even be able to utilize the extra savings in a way that would help create more income.

The #1 best way to create more income with an online website is with targeted traffic utilizing keywords, that is how I create a substantial income with my marketing budget. Targeted traffic is much less expensive than most believe and the ROI - Return on Investment is huge. The SEO grows exponentially when the targeted keywords are utilized properly resulting in much higher Google rankings and search results.

Oh and by the way the $1.68 is based on February, the month with the fewest days (28) except leap year.

Wealthy Affiliate is worth much more than the $1.68 a day just based upon the Community alone. If a person doesn't find $47 a month in value with building their Friendships withing the Wealthy Affiliate Community then they are missing something.

As many of us are aware the $47 a month can be much lower by paying for yearly which is about $360 a year = $30 per month = $1.08 in February, $1 a day most months and less than $1 in months with 31 days.

Thank You Friends, my wish is that the above tips help and that we all save enough money every month to not only be able to afford Wealthy Affiliate & a website marketing traffic keyword targeting tool but also to realize that the Return on Investment outweighs the cost multiple times over.

Another great post, Tony. Becoming a Premium member just makes so much sense and making an annual payment not only saves money but promotes peace of mind...one less thing to worry about!

You wrote this so well, Tony. In a way $47 is affordable for a lot of us, and we can always cut off on some other expenses to invest on something as profitable as Wealthy Affiliate.

What I love most about WA is how they'd really work towards building the best tool there is instead of just looking to profit themselves. You actually don't have to pay full price at all if you use their discounts for the first month then buy the yearly membership.

Cheers,
Anh

Edit: I've actually just wrote a mini post on Wealthy Affiliate's discount at http://bloggingthing.com/wealthy-affiliate-discount. (Where I also featured part of your insights, I hope that's okay!)

Keep up the great work!

I like #7! Seriously though, in addition to unplugging appliances, beware of electricity vampires. Those are the cords that stay plugged into the wall even when nothing is being charged. I don't know how much money that saves, but if does reduce your carbon footprint.

Exactly.

The $47/mo isn't even that much when you compare it to the value you get per dollar spent here.

That and there is an option to upgrade to yearly which comes out to roughly $1 per day.

ONE DOLLAR PER DAY.

It's an obvious smart move to make. Sweet post!

Some really good points. Cutting down on the TV subscription is a good idea, it's mostly repeats your paying for. I remember what the author Jenny Colgan said about writing a book. If you write for half an hour instead of watching a soap opera you will soon end up with a novel.

Hi Tony great blog. I feel it is most certainly worth the $47.00. I am not sure of any other program that you can learn from the ground up of the basics and learn the language of the internet marketing business in such detail. Once you learn the basics and the tools of what it takes to do on line marketing, you need to be creative with your site's to help generate your traffic to your site. And only we, you yourself can do that.

An excellent post, Tony. By targeted marketing do you mean the keyword searches that we've learned about or are you talking about a paid marketing plan? I'd be open to that, too. Maybe that's something I haven't learned about, yet.

I really like your new profile picture, too...that's a handsome young man! :-)

Hi Cheryl,

by targeted keyword marketing I do use a paid marketing plan. One that I believe is much better than any of the others that I have ever used. Proof is in my results Cheryl and that is why I share it on my website.

Well said Tony, people do not monitor their cash flow closely enough and so do not realize how much they are spending.
If you wrote down exactly what you spend daily on things like coffee, newspapers, lunch and choclit etc and totaled it up for the month you would be surprised how much it comes to.
If you can manage to save a couple of quid a day it will soon add up.

For me being a kiwi. Its currently $73 a month. Just under $2.50 a day. It may seem scary at $73 for some of us kiwis, but i do the same thing, i break it down per day, or per week. What can I save.

Budgeting grocery shopping is great. In my house hold we can make $200NZ of food go 2 weeks or just over feeding 3 moderate-sized meal eaters, and the food be delicious.

Thats the one suggestion I offer. Learn how to take cheap ingredients and make tasty food, look for specials. Dont be lazy. You'll save a lot.

Well said Tony! When we look at the $47 broken down there are so many ways to save enough money to pay that little bit to make a better way of living!!!
Taking the change at the end of the day out of your pockets and putting it in a jar will get you $47 a month easily!
But even so the $47 is a small investment each month to get the training, community support and the websites to make more than $47 over time!!!!
