Is Wealthy Affiliate Worth Paying A Membership Fee For Or A Waste Of Money?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

This is a question I keep getting to my Internet Marketing blog regularly and a question I always like to answer, so I thought, though I answer it on the site, why not write an Article on the question. Because I am a member of this marketing community you would think I would just give a straight quick answer “Yes it is well worth the money, join up through me” and try get a commission fee, well that is not how I do things, you have to show why it would be beneficial but also why it would not.

Why Would You Pay A Membership Fee?

First things first, do you have from 47 dollars up to 97 dollars to pay monthly in to a site you do not know will even help you? Second, what is it you want, answer this before you even take that shiny piece of plastic out of your pocket and enter your digits, do you know what you want to achieve?

I'll take it that if you are reading this that you know what the Wealthy Affiliate is, if not, I will give a quick re-cap and people who do know what it is can make like Skippy the Kangaroo and jump over the next few lines.

What is Wealthy Affiliate?

Quickly, WA is website set up by two top Internet Marketers in 2005 as a training course in Internet and Affiliate Marketing, helping them succeed in setting up their own business or making a living online. It has all the latest tools and training and has a huge community, that is it in a nut shell (Of course there is a lot more to it than that, and you can when you have some spare time read about Wealthy Affiliate)

Why Pay A Membership?

Back to initial question. The only reason you would become a member here and pay a monthly or yearly fee is if you are determined to set up an online business or make money online and eventually quit the job (that we all aim for) and want to be taught by the best in the business. To most, the fee would seem like a lot of money to be parting from monthly but again, you need to know what you want before you join.

If you come across WA, and think, I know I want to learn how to make money online, and also say honestly to yourself, I will put in the effort, the work, take the time to learn everything, Take Action another words use everything I learn and start to make your first dollar, then these would be the reasons why you would pay the membership fee (remember, WA is also a Affiliate Programme, by just referring One or Two people, your membership fee is paid for just like mine, sweet)

Also with that membership remember you get all the tools and resources you need for your Internet Marketing trade and as well as the thousands of successful brains that are members and get their guidance and help, another reason to be a member.

Why Would Wealthy Affiliate Be A Waste Of Money?

Trust me, for a lot of people, WA is a waste of money. When people ask me honest questions on my marketing blog I give honest answers, Do not join Wealthy Affiliate if you plan to make a lot of money online instantly, yes you probably have seen countless online success stories saying I made this amount of million blah dee blahh blahh use this product blah blah, though, this person may have made this amount of money, you will not. They have been in this business longer than you, that is why you are viewing their “wonderful” product.

Now, though WA is nothing like this, if you are not willing to do some hard work, learn a new trade (it is a new trade remember) and just want the quick buck, then stay well away from Wealthy Affiliate. People like myself joined up wanting to earn quick money only to realize that is not how it works and training is needed, and though I intended to just stay a month, it is now a year and a half and still a member, the place is invaluable.

Now, Wealthy Affiliate is not the only place online where you can learn to be a marketer (though it is one of the most reasonably priced). There are other Top Internet Marketing Training Courses you can check out, as I take it if you have read this far, you are really interested in kick starting your Internet and Affiliate Marketing career and I applaud you for it. Remember, I was a newbie over a year ago, and now I am seen results and making some money online (not the day job quitter yet) so it is possible. Do the work, reap the benefits.
