Free vs Premium Membership

In my introduction post ‘What is Wealthy Affiliate‘, I discussed the program and features in regards to being a free member, also referred to as Starter Member. As you may recall, there is no time limit on being a Starter Member. You have access to the basic features of the Wealthy Affiliate platform as well as access to the sites you have created for as long as you want to maintain them. There is never any obligation to upgrade to Premium member.

In this post, I will discuss the Premium Member level, what you will have access to, go over the enhanced benefits and compare them with the Starter Member level.

As a Premium Member, you will unlock a ton of tools and features including the ability to create up to 50 websites. Yes, 50! Can you imagine the potential profit you would be making with 50 websites and businesses? You certainly do not have to create that many but the option is there to increase your monthly income streams.

In addition the Site Manager and Site Builder, you will have the ability to use your own domain name or a domain purchased at another registrar like GoDaddy. You will also have access to a content writing platform to help you create amazing content for your website, specialized email mailbox for your site (, a specialized comment platform for people to interact on your website, technical assistance with your website, free SSL for your website, enhanced website security, website analysis to help you improve your website, unlimited access to the keyword research tool and much more!

You will also have access to the Live Video Classes. These classes are indeed live and are interactive. You can engage and communicate directly and get help with any question you may have. The training within Wealthy Affiliate will teach you how to capitalize on any idea, interest, or passion that you have. No experience necessary, no product required. Just bring your love of something and we will help you turn that into a lucrative business.  However, if you are unable to attend the live class, you can always watch the replay in your spare time.

As a Premium Member, you will have access to unlimited 1-on-1 coaching. This is such a valuable benefit, especially if you are new to website creation and business building. With 24/7/365 website technical support, live help, training courses, live video classes, video walk-throughs and 1-on-1 coaching, you will never be left trying to figure things out on your own. Even better, as a Premium Member, you will have access to the private messaging system and have private access to the owners, Kyle and Carson. Speak directly with the creators of this amazing program!
