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.
Have you run ever chanced across the Wealthy Affiliate University?

Simply Put: WA teaches you how to make money with a website.

Cons of WA Membership
- Overwhelming if you don’t follow the training and take it step by step. There is a lot of training. Don’t try to do it all at once.
- There are times when the community does not have as many online – Most of the support is provided by the members. you may have to figure out best time to find someone to help with your issues.
Wealthy Affiliate is an online community membership site that offers a lot more than products.
Its training and support provided by a lot more than the owners of the website. If you have a question, as a member, you can login and join the chat. Other members will answer your questions or tell you exactly where to go to find the answers. This saves a lot of time when you are getting started.
