I no longer recommend Wealthy Affiliate as default go-to for myself to learn and build passive income internet businesses; they have very strong support, robust discussion/forums, strong fundamental online business training programs, and best of all, there is a free-for-life basic membership program where you can learn the basics of online business, get 2 free websites and webhosting too.
Yes, one of their strong points is that you can stay as a free basic member for life if you want to, or once you’ve learnt as much as you can from the basic level and want to level up, you can opt to upgrade to be a premium member at $49 per month or $359 per year (the yearly option is much cheaper).
The reason why I changed my mind is because they do not provide a refund if you pre-paid for their yearly membership; instead you have to wait out your membership – I disagree with this approach. They also call themselves “the only online business platform you ever need”, which isn't true. Read my sharings on that here. Instead, I am very comfortable recommending you AffiloJetPack, which I'm a student of and Solo Build It, which I've used since 2010, check them out for your online success.
Hey hey, I'm back in Wealthy Affiliate community again, after being away about 9 months to sort out projects and work flows – I'm really excited to be back in, and am preparing to port over some of my projects currently in Site Build It.
It's really funny and interesting to see some WA comparison sites talking bad about SBI sites, because the critics have not tried SBI but think that they can read SBI program and comment like they've used it….well I'm using BOTH Site Build It and Wealthy Affiliate, and I've build six-figure lead generation websites using SBI before, and I can say this: they same but different.
I think my review on SBI versus Wealthy Affiliate needs a separate stand-alone comparioson post, but they pretty much hold their own on different levels and approaches.
However, one of the strong sides of WA is that they provide free basic level membership where you can learn about online business – this is SUPER DUPER in the online business world. Sign up for the free membership program here, no credit card needed.
Good news is once you sign up, I'll be welcoming you there in Wealthy Affiliate – see you on the inside =)
