I’ve been a Premium Member of Wealthy Affiliate since 2015. I have two thriving websites and a full time career as an Affiliate Marketer as a direct result of my Wealthy Affiliate Premium Membership. In this article, I’ll be going over what you get with Wealthy Affiliate’s Premium Membership and trust me, by the time you’re done reading this you’ll know you just won’t get more anywhere else. Wealthy Affiliate is my partner in business. They’ve been my trainers, my mentors, my colleagues, my helpers, my friends, and my biggest source of encouragement and support. Read on…you’ll see!
First Things First
First, let’s get the pricing out of the way. If you’re like me, you’re just going to scroll down to the bottom of this article to see the price before you read the article anyway. LOL The monthly membership fee for the Wealthy Affiliate Premium Membership is $49. Wealthy Affiliate allows new members to get their first month as a Premium Member for ONLY $19. If you try it for 30 days and don’t think it’s for you, simply cancel your membership. You can also get the Annual Premium Membership for $495 which works out to $41.25 per month. I’ve always had the annual membership because it’s cheaper.
Best Feature: Their Training Works
The training at Wealthy Affiliate doesn’t just simplify the process of affiliate marketing, it’s better in absolutely every way. When you become a Premium Member at Wealthy Affiliate, you get access to the most sophisticated training program in the industry. Whether you’re brand new at affiliate marketing or an experienced affiliate marketer, Wealthy Affiliate can play a crucial role in your having a successful, long-term business online.
Let’s Talk About the Education Features and Benefits
Online Entrepreneur Certification (50 Lessons)
This training consists of 5 Phases, each containing 10 Lessons, for a total of 50 Lessons. This will be the core of your knowledge and training. By the time you’re finished with these lessons, you’re going to be well equipped to succeed in any niche or topic. This training is updated regularly so you’ll always be ahead of industry trends (and your competition!)
Affiliate Bootcamp Training (70 Lessons)
I consider Affiliate Bootcamp an absolutely brilliant idea on the part of the owners of Wealthy Affiliate. This is where they teach you HOW TO PROMOTE WEALTHY AFFILIATE! Think about this – they give you 70 Lessons on how to promote products within the making-money-online niche. They make you an expert at promoting Wealthy Affiliate and you make an enormous amount of money doing it. It’s good for them. It’s good for you. Like I said, it’s brilliant. (By the way, the website I created in Affiliate Bootcamp is the one you’re on right now!) Affiliate Bootcamp, in my opinion, is one of the many features that makes Wealthy Affiliate far better than any other training program out there. It’s the difference between being just an affiliate marketer and being a full-blown internet entrepreneur.
Weekly LIVE Interactive Classes
Each and every week, they offer live class training from industry experts. Jay, the lead trainer for the live classes, is an awesome trainer. He’s funny, personable, understandable, and he has an amazing, advanced skill level that will blow your mind. Jay is important to all of us Premium Members. We love this guy. Wealthy Affiliate will send you an email every time a new training is scheduled, so you’ll be able to pick and choose which live trainings you’d like to attend.
Over 300 Hours of Expert Education Available Anytime
Every live class is published as a “replay,” and as a Premium member you get access to ALL of the past live classes. This includes over 300 hours of education on absolutely every topic imaginable. If you want to redefine your business and grow to entirely new levels, this is worth 100 times the cost of the membership alone. Wealthy Affiliate will send you an email every time a new replay is available.
Gigantic Catalogue of Industry Training
Everything you could imaging in terms of running a successful online business is covered in the thousands of training modules available in your Premium Membership. New trainings are created every single day through their “community training” program.

And get this – if you don’t see a training you’re looking for, simply request it, and an expert within the community will create it!

After three months of being a Premium Member, you can create your own training articles, video trainings or text tutorials, as well as full training courses. Payments for the trainings are sent monthly and it’s a great way to cover the cost of your entire membership at Wealthy Affiliate.

Every successful online business starts with a solid website. It’s not just about creating the website, though. You also need to integrate things like website management, analysis, ranking and security. Wealthy Affiliate has some of the most useful tools for these purposes with features that aren’t offered anywhere else in the world. The website platform at Wealthy Affiliate is ridiculously easy to use, but very advanced. You can truly build beautiful, professional, highly functioning websites with Wealthy Affiliate.

Website Benefits and Features

It’s nice to have a choice for the website design you’d like to use. You’re going to have access to more than 3,000 beautiful themes. These themes are mobile ready and there’s a design available for any niche/topic you desire.
51,973 Website Feature “Add On’s”

An All Inclusive Domain Platform
When you either create a website at Wealthy Affiliate, or move one of your websites to be hosted by Wealthy Affiliate, you have access to many features you would expect other domain registrars to charge for. Included with every domain is WHOIS Privacy Protection, 24/7 Support, Next Year Guarantee Pricing, Domain Security, Unlimited Email Accounts, & Advanced DNS Management & Instant Set-up. As a Premium member, you will have access to all of these features for no extra cost with any domain that you register through SiteDomains! Just pulling out one piece of this is crucial. I personally feel that the fact that I have 24/7 website tech support at Wealthy Affiliate makes my membership worth it. Honestly, look around to see what other hosting companies are charging, what they offer, and what the price is. You’ll see that it’s an amazing feature of Wealthy Affiliate to actually have our own tech support team included with every single one of our websites. I honestly don’t know what I’d do without the tech support at Wealthy Affiliate! I’m a little embarrassed to say I need their help often. 🙂
Amplify Your Website Speed with SiteSpeed
Faster websites get ranked higher, and they also offer a better user experience than slow websites. If your website is slow, people will leave it quickly and not come back. But if it’s fast, they’ll spend more time on your pages, reading your content, and this will result in more sales. Wealthy Affiliate’s SiteSpeed feature has the fastest website load times in the industry. They guarantee it.
Website Analysis with SiteHealth
There are many things you can analyze to determine the overall health of your website. These include content quality, publishing frequency, visitor engagement, plugins, Google rankings, website feedback and overall trust. Wealthy Affiliate tracks all of these for you within the SiteHealth platform.
In this day and age, website security is becoming more and more important. The SiteProtect feature at Wealthy Affiliate adds Comment Spam, Back Office Hacking (passwords), and Website Load Speeds (Botnet Attacks) to your websites. These are the three ways hackers can wreak havoc on your business and Wealthy Affiliate protects you from all of these with the SiteProtect platform.
Website Engagement – SiteComments
When people comment at the bottom of your posts, it increases your rankings in the search engines. Plus, engagement leads to trust. And trust leads to sales. In Wealthy Affiliate, you have access to a community “comment exchange.” This is where we post comments on each others’ posts. Brilliant, huh? And great practice for learning how to interact with your audience.
A Focus Group for Your Website with SiteFeedback
In the Wealthy Affiliate community, we have a platform in place where we can give feedback to each other about our websites. This tool is priceless. It’s feedback from REAL people about your website, your design, your content, your images…it’s a great tool for finding out ways to improve your website.
Advanced Website Training
There are hundreds of training modules and hours of video training that you will get instant access to when you become a Premium Member that will teach you how to become an expert with WordPress. As you move through the training at Wealthy Affiliate, you’ll become not only well versed, but extremely knowledgeable about creating and managing a successful website. There are no technical skills required. They literally teach you, step-by-step, everything you need to know.
A Website Platform You Can Grow With
Wealthy Affiliate’s website platform is just as appropriate for a brand new person as it is for the experienced website owner. As your business grows, your website platform needs to be able to grow with you. Your website will be getting more and more traffic, and you’ll likely be building more and more websites. At Wealthy Affiliate, you can create and run several multi-million dollar websites from one platform. You can’t outgrow the platform at Wealthy Affiliate. As a Premium Member, you can host up to 50 websites total (yes, 50!).
Wealthy Affiliate provides a hosting experience you can feel safe running your businesses on. They take care of the technology, security and monitoring so we can focus on more important things, like making money and growing our business! I personally consider them my business partners.

Still Not Convinced?
As I said in the beginning off this article, I am a Premium Member of Wealthy Affiliate. You should know that the yearly membership is the cheapest. They give a pretty big discount if you pay annually (I do). The Premium Membership is $49 per month if you pay monthly. That’s $588 per year. When you join, they give a discount for your first month and only charge $19. Then the second month, they’ll give you the opportunity to go yearly at a reduced cost which results in your getting two months’ membership free. You can go yearly any time, by the way…it doesn’t have to be during your second month. Just letting you know about this because you don’t have to plan on $49 per month. You can get your membership cheaper than that (can you tell I’m a bargain shopper? LOL)
I know this has been a lengthy article and I’ve given you a ton of information to absorb. If you have any questions, feel free to comment below (I’ll respond).
