Unlike many other programs out there, Wealthy Affiliate only offers 2 levels of membership – Free Starter Membership & Premium Membership.
Rest assured that you won’t be asked to pay more for any advanced service.
As a Premium Member, you’re allowed to get access to the entire community.
You can get your first month of Premium Membership at $19 if you join through my link here and upgrade within 7 days.
If you decide to upgrade to Premium membership after trying their free training, you’re required to pay $49/month or $495/year.
Nevertheless, you only pay $19 in your first month if you upgrade to the premium membership within 7 days.
As I said, this shouldn’t be a big problem once you joined Wealthy Affiliate.
Rest assured, you’ll not deal with the complex and confusing coding kind of stuff.
Wealthy Affiliate has a powerful site builder that enables you to build a profit-ready website in minutes.
Honestly, there’s no definite answer to this question.
We all have different schedules. So many people are afraid that they don’t have enough time to do this.
As I mentioned, you can’t rush the process as Affiliate Marketing is not a get-rich-quick scheme.
And Affiliate Marketing is kinda like solo entrepreneurship. It’s not a 9~5 job that required you to clock in and out every day. You’re your own boss. You’re the one who decides how much time you’re willing to invest.
The only difference is that the more time you can invest, the faster you can see results. That’s why I work every day for 5 months straight as I want to see result faster.
If you have other commitments and you don’t have much time to invest in this, it’s totally fine. You just need more patience to see results.
This is also not a traditional kind of business where you have the pressure to pay your employees’ salaries or to satisfy your investors or pay off your loans.
So, time shouldn’t be a problem for you to start your affiliate marketing business.
Make sense, right?
If you ask me: “Is affiliate marketing DEAD?” or “Is it true that affiliate marketing is NOT RELIABLE?”
My answer is ABSOLUTELY NO. Affiliate marketing alone is a $7 billion industry, and it keeps growing every single year.
Affiliate marketing is acting as a bridge between the eCommerce merchant and the potential buyer.
Think about this:
When a seller has a product or service to sell, affiliates can help them bring in customers.
In return, affiliates get paid based on results. The more customers they can bring to the seller, the more money both sellers and affiliates can earn.
On the other hand, affiliates can also help the customer get the products or services they need. That’s a win-win-win situation.
So, my question is: Do you think that e-Commerce platforms like Amazon or eBay will disappear in the future?
From my standpoint, I think they will only get bigger and better every year because of the high demand in the market.
As long as e-commerce is still here, and there are people buying online, affiliate marketing will not die.
Frankly, I have this misconception when I first started out in the online business world.
When I take the time to understand these two business models, it’s undeniable to say that they are quite similar, yet they’re not the same.
There’re 2 significant differences between affiliate marketing and MLM.
Let me list them out:
- Unlike MLM, there’s no multi-level upline and downline relationship in affiliate marketing. It’s just between you and the merchant, which you’re partnering with.
- In affiliate marketing, you’ve 100% control over your income and business. But in MLM, your income is entirely reliant on your downlines. If they don’t sell, you’ll never earn a penny.
This is another common question.
The answer is NO. Many outsiders critique Wealthy Affiliate because they think they are just a platform that is all about referring people onto their platform.
That’s not true at all.
When you start with the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course, you’ll be taught how to choose your website’s niche and how to build a business around your passion and interest.
It’s definitely not just about promoting WA, although WA also has its own affiliate program that you can leverage on.
