How much does Wealthy Affiliate cost?

Throughout my website, I help people to create time and financial freedom by building a profitable business online.

One of the ways that I do this is by offering a free starter membership along with my business partners at Wealthy Affiliate.

Often though, people will say to me “is it really free?” or “how much does it actually cost?”

So in this article I want to answer this frequently asked question, and give you the rundown on all of the costs involved.

So how much does Wealthy Affiliate cost?

Starter membership – FREE

The starter membership at Wealthy Affiliate is completely free to join, and you can remain a free member for as long as you like.

With the free option you receive these benefits:

  • 2 Free WordPress websites, powered by the Site-Rubix Website Builder
  • 10 lesson “Getting Started” Online Entrepreneur certification training course
  • 10 lesson “phase 1” Affiliate Bootcamp training course
  • Website backup
  • Personal Affiliate Blog
  • Earn while you learn affiliate program
  • Video Walkthroughs
  • 2 training Classrooms
  • 30 searches keyword research tool
  • 1-on-1 coaching for the first 7 days
  • Live help for the first 7 days

One of the biggest misconceptions I have found, is that a lot of people believe that you only get these features for 7 days.

In actual fact, you can remain a free member for as LONG as you want.

You will lose access to some of the community support such as the “live help”, and the 1-on-1 coaching, but you can still ask a question to the community and receive an answer, it just may take a little longer to get a reply.

And also, if you come in under my wing, you can ask me a question at any time, and I will gladly help out when and where I can 🙂

So rest assured, you CAN absolutely remain a free member of WA, and continue to build out your online business forever!

However, if you are like me, and want to really take your online business and development to the next level, there is also a premium option…

Premium – $49 per month

As I said before, you can remain a starter member for as long as you like, but if you want to go to the next level you can upgrade to premium for $49 per month.

There is also the option to pay a yearly price of $359 that works out at less than $30 per Month, which is an even greater discount.

So what are the benefits of going “premo”?:

  • Unlimited live help
  • 50 websites
  • Website security package
  • Website backup
  • Online entrepreneur certification training course (all phases)
  • Personal affiliate blog
  • Affiliate Bootcamp training course ( all 7 phases)
  • Live video classes
  • Video walkthroughs
  • Unlimited keyword searches
  • 12 Training classes
  • 2x higher payout affiliate program
  • Private access to owners
  • Website support
  • Website comments
  • Website feedback
  • Website analysis
  • And MUCH MORE…



As you can see, if you are really serious about taking your online business to the next level, then Wealthy Affiliate Premium is the way to go!

But I always recommend that you start out with the free membership and check it all out before you consider upgrading.

And if you do go premium and decide that it’s not for you, then you can cancel at anytime with the click of a button.

But I’m sure it won’t come down to that.

Once you see for yourself how much value Wealthy Affiliate provides, you will agree that this is the place to be.

So that’s it.

That’s how much Wealthy Affiliate costs!

Two basic levels, with no hidden costs, fees or upsells.

  1. My name is Solorsano1, rank 499, I follow you on WA, and my writing access has been revoked? I contacted kyle and carlson through email, but there has still been no response after 6 days. The only thing I can think of that I did wrong was set up a Quora tutorial on how to gain traffic that was labeled by community members as blackhat. At least they could have told me what I did wrong and given me a chance to fix it since I am premium. There was no warning and do you know of anything I can possibly do to get the community back that I pay for besides continually emailing kyle?

    • Hi Solorsano1,
      Unfortunately, if anything gets reported as “black hat” or promotional etc, you can have you account suspended.
      This is understandable as Wealthy Affiliate is a spam free environment and you don’t want to see promotional posts all over the place.
      Sometimes you can make a genuine mistake or someone takes it the wrong way.
      I would just email Kyle and explain your case and I am sure he will re-instate your account.
      Best of luck 🙂

  2. Hi John,
    I am in agreement with your concept of Wealthy Affiliate. I like how you explain the difference between the free membership and the Premium Membership. It is a good program so there is no need to hide any part of it.
    The good thing about it is that you can start to build your business with the free membership.
    Good Read!

  3. Hi John,
    A very clear breakdown of the benefits of being both free starter member and a premium member.
    When I joined I had not seen an offer like it, Wealthy Affiliate was the first company that I had come across that actually offered a completely free trial that didn’t ask for credit card details right from the start.
    There is such confidence in the product from the owners Kyle and Carson that they don’t need to bamboozle you with deals and offers and upsells.
    It’s just clear from the moment that you join that they have provided something different an awesome set of training, tools, support, hosting and the community that has grown out of that is just amazing. and great value for money you just can’t get all that they offer for such a great price anywhere else.
    Long may it continue.

  4. I’m a member of Wealthy Affiliate and recommend it to anyone who wants to build an honest to goodness, legitimate online business.

    The cost of Wealthy Affiliate is insignificant in comparison to the value of the skills you will learn and business you will build.

    It’s really only an expense in the beginning.

    The truth is, if a person follows the training and takes action, their online business will soon pay the monthly membership fee to Wealthy Affiliate.

    I cannot imagine any other business with such high earning potential that costs so little to start and maintain.

  5. Everyone wants financial freedom and having the time for the really fun things in life. It takes action and perseverance to take this step but if you want something in life you have to take action! What a great tip and definitely the action worth! I totally agree with you, Dream It… Believe It… Then Achieve It!

    • So true Angelic! Everyone wants financial freedom, but not many are willing to put in the work to achieve it!

      Thankfully, with Wealthy Affiliate you have a proven blueprint for online success, but you must still be willing to put in the time and effort to achieve success!

      Thanks for your comment 🙂

  6. Good overview of the WA program by comparing the benefits between free membership vs premium membership.

    Most of the time people were afraid of online business scams but the free membership program offered by WA is definitely worth a try.

    Question – how long does it take for an average Joe to achieve success from the date he starts the online business? Success means he can stop working day time jobs and concentrate fully on online marketing business.

    • Thanks for your comment Gary and glad you liked my article.

      The great thing about WA is that you can check out the whole membership for free with no time limit or pressure to upgrade.

      I don’t know of any other programs that offers this amount of value for free!

      As for how long does it take for the average Joe to achieve success?… I hear this question all the time, but the real answer is “how long is a piece of string”?

      It depends on so many factors.

      All I know is that there is no ceiling to your income online, and that if you keep working hard and learning, the results will eventually follow.

      The worst thing you can do is to get impatient with success.

      The key is to look at the bigger picture, focus on the work you are putting into your site, the value you are creating for others, and celebrate your progress along the way.

      A quote I am reminded of is “people often overestimate what they can achieve in one year, but underestimate what they can achieve in 5 years” and that is why people often give up before they succeed.

      And truthfully, most people give up after a month or two, or don’t even start in the first place, and this is a HUGE shame!

      They don’t give themselves the TIME to succeed!

      Best of luck 🙂

  7. Agree with John there.

    Do try the free membership first to get a good inside look of Wealthy Affiliate. There’s training, courses, support and 2 free WordPress websites which you could use to earn some money while you’re learning. Awesome stuff.

    That’s what I did at first. Then I signed up for premium after the 1st week to take advantage of the $19 promo on the first month.

    Nice and complete info provided by John here.

    • Thanks Andrew!

      Personally I upgraded to premium after a few days because I instantly could see all of the value and I instantly felt that this was exactly what I had been searching for for so long… and here I am several years later and I consider this the best decision I have ever made!

      Some people may take a bit longer to make that the decision though, and that is also fine.

      And I do know of people that are making some decent money just with the free membership, so the choice is yours!

      Thanks for your comment 🙂
