Is Wealthy Affiliate Worth it? – My Journey
Hi, Edmund here.
I joined Wealthy Affiliate in 2014, Wealthy Affiliate has been around since 2005. It’s training, tools, and the community has totally evolved since the beginning to become the best place for learning Internet Marketing and making money in the Online World!
I started looking for Online Business Opportunities in 2009 after I left my last job. As I was fumbling through the internet, I found a make money Online product that had me sold on to the idea that I can make it rich in the shortest time. What I need to do is just copy and paste what they do.
Alas, I wasted a few months on a product that leads me to nowhere. When I was clueless and when I have questions, I do not have anyone to turn to. Finally, I gave up on this one and bought a few other make money Online products. After a few tried and failed attempts, I finally decided that making money Online was not possible.
Six years later, now, I am asking why I have not chanced upon Wealthy Affiliate then? What if I had persisted searching for a genuine place to learn how to make money Online?
If I had followed Wealthy Affiliate’s training since back then, can I even be more successful now?
Is Wealthy Affiliate Worth it? – Opportunity Cost
The lost in opportunity cost for me was a huge one. I could have made so much more in monthly passive income now if I had started earlier. I estimated it could worth in the range of $100,000s. (conservatively, avg $2000/mth x 12mth x 6yrs)
You see, my dear friend, I have looked back at my past and asked myself so many “What if?” questions.
The question you have to ask yourself now is, do you want to ask the same “What if?” questions 5 or 10 years later when you come back to visit Wealthy Affiliate again.
How much would be your opportunity cost’s worth?
Wealthy Affiliate has so much in the training, tools and support from the community for you to leverage on to build and scale your Online Business.
The potential of your Online Business in the next 5 years is measurable if you consider the commitment and hard work you are willing to put into it.
Is Wealthy Affiliate Worth it? – Premium Membership
The experience as a Free* Starter Member allows me to understand the importance of hard work and commitment to an Online Business. I get to feel first hand, how to create a website and shower it with valuable contents and watch the visitorship grow. I busted many Online Business Myths too.
Online Business is not like a toy where you play with it and discards it later when you grew tired of it.
Online Business is like an acorn you planted in the ground that needs your care and attention to nature it to a big tree.
I knew I had to grow my Online Business to the next level seeing the potential of it. I wanted to get out of the Rat Race and I wanted to commit to my success. I upgraded to Premium Membership within 7 days, then upgraded to Yearly Premium within a month.
Why Yearly Premium?
After the first month discount is over, the monthly fee is $49. I see myself going long term to grow and build my Online Businesses and thus I made some calculation, based on the current pricing.
Monthly Premium: $49 x 12 mths = $588 /year
Yearly Premium: $359.
I made a saving of $229/yr = $19/mth saving.
So effectively, my monthly premium is $30/mth.
- I consider it very reasonably priced with the tons of training in Wealthy Affiliate that include the weekly webinar.
- I consider it very reasonably priced with the number of experts in the community whom I can address my questions to, including the owner, Kyle himself.
- I consider it very reasonably priced with the tools provided there.
- I consider it very reasonably priced with up to max 25 sub-domain name and max 25 own-domain name websites I can host at Wealthy Affiliate’s top class servers.
For just $1/day for all these?
If you understand that Online Success is not an overnight event but a process of building, fine tuning and building again. It is definitely worth it to go yearly premium if you are committed to your Success.
Don’t you agree with me?
