I want to tell you more about one of the very best things I have come across while being on this journey of building up this site and trying to find more ways of making a bit more money.
Make a website
When you go online and research how to make money online or making cash from home etc one suggestion that always comes up is to make a webpage. So you make a webpage about something that you are genuinely interested in and then you write write write. The more the better. This is not a quick solution or really an easy one even if it might sound easy at first. It will take time. It will take research, it will take spellchecks and perseverance and a bit of passion too.
I decided to try it, and a lot of other things but this page isn’t about those other things *smile
So I boldly went where nobody has gone before..erm wait, no I didn’t. I started up a webpage. I struggled with the built-in builder and after a bit, I decided to try another. The next one I liked a lot better but now I realized something new. It can get pricey to build up a webpage. This web host was free but very limited. To actually get to do anything good you had to upgrade to a monthly paying version. I really think stuff like that should be crystal clear from the start. I mean I understand that they are a business looking to make their money too and I don’t mind as long as I know all along what the rules are, you know? Also, you’ll probably need a domain.
So there I am, total beginner at making a ‘proper’ website. I found pretty much unlimited information online but spread out and all over the place and it was making me lose focus on what I was trying to do with this page. And that is when it happened. While I was researching how to do it I came across a website built by a Wealthy Affiliate member.
Wealthy Affiliate nice to meet you!!
At Wealthy Affiliate, you almost get another family. You get a big community of people that are all here working to succeed and that want you to do the same. It didn’t take me long to realize that this was the one for me. It feels very safe to jump headfirst into a venture like this when you get as much support as you do here at Wealthy Affiliate. We are all different. Some may do really well on their own without any support or guidance but as for me, I needed this place.
I love how there are lessons that show you step by step what to do. I love the enormous collective knowledge that is available from people that know what they are talking about. And I love how everybody is welcomed into the gang.
I mean look at this for instance.
Alright, there’s more to making a good website than all that, but hey its very nice. Check here for more info or to join up
But here are the facts and numbers
As you can see you get 7 free days to try it all out. The free account doesn’t run out after the 7 days either. You can remain a free member for as long as you want actually. But the 7-day countdown is for a discount on your first month as a premium member. If you upgrade to premium during those first 7 days then your first month as a premium member costs 19$.
I like that it’s all out in the open, how much it costs. What you get for your money. If you look at it you get a lot as a premium member. And if you want the best money value and can afford it then pay yearly ( 359$ ) which is 39% saving vs paying monthly (49$).They actually haven’t changed the pricing since they started the programme in 2005.
So here’s what you get :
- 50 Websites
- Unlimited Live Help
- Website Backup
- Website Security Package
- Beginner Training Course
- Personal Affiliate Blog
- Affiliate Bootcamp Training
- Live Video Classes
- Video Walk-Throughs
- Keyword Research Tool-(Unlimited Searches)
- Training Classrooms-((12)
- Affiliate Program-(2x Higher Payout)’Earn while you learn’
- 1-on-1 Coaching
- Private Access to Owners
- 24/7/365 Website Support
- Website Feedback Platform
- Website Comment Platform
- Website Analysis
That’s a lot of good stuff in my opinion. Comparable hosting alone can be up to 250$ per month I like that the prices have remained the same for 12 years. Another thing I like is that Kyle and Carson that started and run Wealthy affiliate are very much involved and approachable for all members ( They actually started Wealthy Affiliate as a College project ). There are over 1400 000 members now and many of them with a lot of experience and wisdom they are happy to share. On average 1out of 8 upgrades to yearly, depending on the affiliate, and 12% of all free Starter referrals end up going Premium.
To be completely honest with you all
I love being an affiliate here at Wealthy Affiliate and learning while I’m earning but I have promised to be honest with you guys. If any of you follow my link to Wealthy Affiliate and sign up that would make me really happy.Both for your sake and for mine. Even if you join as a free member I would still be happy because you got to join this really great community because of me sharing my story with you and that gives me a warm feeling inside. If you decided to become a premium member well then I would earn some money from that, and that would also make me happy and warm inside for both our sakes 🙂 FULL DISCLOSURE!!
I have read a gazillion reviews about Wealthy Affiliate and I would say its been 99.98 % positive.
The only negative opinion I have come across was that if you are premium and quit then you can’t start up again as a free member, you have to rejoin as a premium member.
I thought I should mention it so that you know all the facts and can make a choice based on that. the way I see it tho is -what do you have to lose by trying it for free?
