Wealthy Affiliate’s Price Change
One of the top internet marketing training sources has decided to increase their price. First of all I thought the $39.99 per month was expensive so honestly I feel the $97 is way too much. Although I am not a member of wealthy affiliate i am still glad they are here. Anyone who is reading this i can honestly tell you that Wealthy Affiliate is no scam. I do believe it’s waaaay over rated and over priced but seeing what i’m seeing online and also seeing what people are willing to pay to learn internet marketing I can’t blame Kyle and Carson for raising the price of their membership.
Wealthy Affiliate’s price Change in the middle of a Recession
Since the recession people have been flocking to the internet to find work only to find out that working from home is lot harder than they might have expected or anticipated. This is a very brave and bold move Kyle & Carson and it should be interesting how people respond to it. Allot of people are desperate at the moment and well desperate people do desperate things, so it might work who knows all power to them again Wealthy Affiliate is not a scam i’m just not a fan.
Is Wealthy Affiliate worth $97 PER MONTH
Is wealthy affiliate worth $97? If you ask me the answer is a BIG HUGE GIGANTIC, NOOOOOOOOOO. none the less Kyle and Carson are millionaires and me i’ll be lucky to hit $200k this year so do what’s right for you. My view in terms of learning Internet marketing is you should only have to pay once. I am a member of quite a few online programs that have monthly and yearly fees but understand that i joined these programs because they make it EASIER for me to operate my online business.
Wealthy Affiliate teaches you internet marketing, there’s no special software at WA that will make your life easier, everything found at Wealthy affiliate can be found online for free. So by signing up to WA you are signing up for convenience. Another thing to keep note of is Wealthy Affiliate is an Information based website. Paying a MONTHLY fee for information when you are already online in my opinion is a step in the wrong direction. My belief is if your a paying to get information on how to make money online you should only have to pay one time. Before or when you sign up for WA you should ask the question how many Wealthy affiliate members are REALLY working from home full time. I’ll end this post with that if you would like to learn how to work from home full time @ a fraction of the cost with no up sells visit the link below.
Update… Wealthy Affiliate Introduces WordPress Express
Ummm yea? Hopefully this wordpress express tool is allot more than just an easy way to set up a wordpress blog. Allow me to expose a little information on the web hosting of this current blog and how much it costs me to operate. I am currently with TMD Hosting, my point is if you sign up with any Cpanel hosting provider you can set up a wordpress blog in seconds. you can even set up one just like this one. The website you see here was made for free.My hosting bill is $4.00 a month, plus anytime i buy a domain name i can add that domain name to this hosting account and easily create another wordpress blog with a template in a flash.
Maybe this wordpress express thing WA just introduced does allot more than create a wordpress blog with a template. WA’s WordPress express blog tool apparently has 1300 templates but again i return to the WA price for $97 you can get a custom wordpress template and for $200( 2 month’s at WA) you can get your Blog SEO’d. Having a WordPress blog does not guarantee you search engine results. It’s false information like this that bothers me. I want to remind people Kyle and Carson are not pro’s at SEO they made their fortunes in Pay per click and Email marketing.
I don’t want to sound like a “hater” so i’ll stop their. If you want to sign up for WA please don’t let me stop you…

I was a WA member for over one year. The community is great and it is well-worth at $39/month. Totally agree with you that WA is not worth $97/month or over $700/year, especially when lots of their competitors are giving more training at lower cost.
For example, Commission Blueprint 2.0 cost less than $500, one time payment. Commission Ritual is $97, one time payment.
If they want to charge more, they should add more features, like link building network, powerful keyword tools, advanced SEO training.
I have been member for about 3 months. Today, WA cancelled my subscription. Not sure why they kicked me out, but that’s fine with me. I have to say, that the reviews of WA are hugely overrated, and the tools at WA are often not working properly, yet it is widely ignored for months. For example, the WA keyword tool is out of whack, does not give exact search nor last month search volumes; the Rapid Writer is far from rapid and some features do not work (for example the article directories search). I openly expressed my concern about it, especially the fact, that the owners knew about it for months, yet ignored it. And of course, the latest and greatest WordPressExpress is basically a system, that most hosting providers had implemented years ago (one click WordPress install). The only difference is, that WA offers 1300 free templates, although they are free for a reason (very plain with not much ‘coolness’). In short, most dedicated tools are much better and often even cheaper, especially if considering longer term cost.
The training was not bad, although I did not like how they deliberately slowed the training down in order to keep you subscribed for longer. Also, the lack of video training was a bummer.
Overall, $39 was an OK price for what you got, mostly because of the forum, especially posts by members like Travis, PotPieGirl and other great people. But the super hype created by the affiliates certainly does not match the reality, and $97/month is just way overpriced for what WA currently offers.
