We are RAISING our prices at WA!
Yes. You read that correctly.
Carson and I have for a long time really disliked the price point at Wealthy Affiliate. Anything that ends with a $7 tends to group us with all of the "products" out there and we don't want to stand side by side with ANY company within this industry.
Before you panic here, the price increase is NOT going to involve you if you are already a member and it is very nominal. We are considering moving our price from:
$47 per month
$49 per month
For our premium membership. It is only a $2 increase, but it moves us away from a price point that we have always disliked and separates us from an industry with companies that we distrust and want to disassociate from even more.
We feel that $49 feels more like a "service" than a product and it is something that people would feel more comfortable (subtly) in investing in. We know our service far exceeds this in value and it is only going to get better.
By the way, the $359 yearly membership would remain unchanged along with the first month $19 offer.
This will also reflect in affiliate commissions as well, with the $49 paying $23.50 (instead of $22.50).
Would love to get everyone's feedback and perspective on this. Thanks!
