In today's post I want to show you some of the differences between the free starter membership and premium membership at Wealthy Affiliate.
So Let's take a look at Wealthy Affiliate Starter vs Premium membership.
The starter membership at Wealthy Affiliate is always 100%, absolutely, unconditionally, FREE. There is not even a credit card required to sign up. All that is required is an email address.
There is also no time limit on how long you can stay a free member,
With the free membership you can build two websites on the Siterubix platform and you can host them at WA at no charge.
You can run your blog and even promote products and services that you can earn commissions from.
All at no charge.
It is a fantastic way to get started in the online business world and see what WA has to offer.
You can sign up here Wealthy Affiliate Free Membership.
Yes, the Starter membership is free, and while there is a great deal of value provided, there are some limitations on what you can do with the free membership.
- You can only create 2 websites
- You can only create subdomains (mywebsite.siterubix.com)
- There is no live chat after 7 days
- You cannot ask questions after 7 days
- There is no access to “Premium” features (see below)
- There is no access to the weekly webinars
- There is no hosting support
If you are already a free member and love what you have found, then, there is an option to upgrade to a premium membership that gives you access to some pretty cool stuff.
Lets look at what a premium membership offers.
What's Included in Wealthy Affiliate Premium?
Wealthy Affiliate premium membership offers so much value for a relatively low price ($49) that I am sometimes confused as to why someone with the desire to build an online business would not sign up.
I am running a special right now where I can get you your first month of premium membership for only $19!
Here is a small sampling of what you get with a premium membership.
- WordPress Optimized hosting for up to 25 websites
- Free SSL for all of your websites
- Free SiteSpeed optimization for blazing fast websites
- Free fast and efficient hosting support
- In-depth training on every subject that you are going to come across in your online business
- Weekly webinars and training with Members that have been successful with Wealthy Affiliate.
- peer review and critique of your website (optional)
- unlimited live chat
- Answers to all of your questions
- Free Use of the Jaaxy keyword research tool
The premium membership provides you with everything you need to run your online business. You will never have to buy another “how to make money online” guide. You will never have to go in search of answers to your questions. You will never have to pay extra for hosting, or for getting help fixing your website.
Wealthy Affiliate is an all in one solution for building your online business. You have to put in the work, but they provide you with all of the tools you need to get the job done.

Wealthy Affiliate Cost Comparison
A premium membership at Wealthy Affiliate costs $49 per month or $359 per year.
That is less than $1 a day!
Think about all of the other things in your life that you spend a dollar a day on.
A coffee at Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks will cost you at least twice that much!
If you enjoy a beer or a glass of wine in the evening, you are spending more than twice that much!
If you take your significant other out to eat, you are spending more than that!
For less than the cost of these simple things that you enjoy in life, you could be investing in your future and your financial freedom!
Now there are also some great Wealthy Affiliate discounts that make it even more affordable!
I have put two boys through college.
The cost of their tuition and room and board, meals etc. was more than $42,000 per year.
While I am thrilled with the education they received and truly happy that they are doing what they love, I have to tell you that I make more in a year with what I have learned from Wealthy Affiliate than the two of them combined!
Wealthy Affiliate provides an education in real world knowledge and tactics to build an online business.
It is like any other education, in that the education itself does not make the money. You need to do the work and apply what you have learned in order to make money.
The harder that you work at it, the more money you will make.
I often have people say to me, "You're so lucky to be able to spend time with your family" or "You're so lucky to have such nice things".
To which I always reply,
"You know, the harder I work, the luckier I get."
If you are willing to work hard, then financial independence is very attainable with the training and support at Wealthy Affiliate.
For a limited time, I have a special offer for you.
Just $19 for your first month at Wealthy Affiliate.
That's less than $1 a day.
Less than that cup of coffee.
I'll see you inside.
