So it’s the end of November and I’m guessing that you probably have been seeing the promotion everywhere. Maybe you’ve seen it advertised online, maybe you have been bombarded with emails about it… But what the heck is going on here. Is this some sort of Wealthy Affiliate Black Friday scam?
After all, while Black Friday is well known for its incredible deals it is also well known for incredible scams. Is this just another one of them?
In the short post I want to go over what exactly is going on with this Black Friday special that Wealthy Affiliate is having and why it is being promoted so heavily. I’ll let you know what the upsides and downsides to it are and hopefully paying a more clear picture for you.
But first, what is Wealthy Affiliate? You probably already know this, but in case there’s anyone reading this that doesn’t, here’s a short summary of what this place is…
Wealthy Affiliate In a Nutshell..
In short, Wealthy Affiliate is an online business training platform that is mostly focused on affiliate marketing. The reason I call it a “platform” is because they are just your typical training program that provides the training and leaves you having to go out and buy the tools necessary. Wealthy Affiliate takes sort of a “holistic” approach and provides the tools needed to implement the training and be successful.
As a member you get access to the step-by-step tutorial training, tools like the website builder and more, technical support and access to the community where you can network with thousands of other like-minded individuals, some of which are veterans and have been making money doing this for years.
So you know what Wealthy Affiliate is, but what is the deal with this Black Friday sale? Why is it being promoted by everyone as the greatest thing ever?
What’s The Deal With the Black Friday Sale?
The Black Friday sale that Wealthy Affiliate is having doesn’t give you anything extra.
- Don’t get additional training
- Don’t get access to any new tools
- Don’t get any special support
- don’t get anything extra… At all
There is nothing that you are getting with the Black Friday special that other premium members of WA are not already getting. The Black Friday sale is all about a discount on the membership price… It’s all about saving money
and giving you something for less than you would normally have to pay
How much are you really saving?
So you probably know that there are two memberships available at Wealthy Affiliate… They have the free Starter Membership in the paid Premium Membership. The free membership is a great way to get started, but if you are serious about making money online then upgrading to premium is pretty much a necessity.
That said, the Premium Membership can cost you a pretty penny. The normal price for this membership is…
- or $359/yr
You can save a good bit of money if you pay on a yearly basis, but that is still $359 a year. HOWEVER, with the Black Friday sale you can save even more and become an all-inclusive Premium Member for $299. In one of the nice things is that when this time rolls around next year, you can pay the same $299 for the following year, and every year after that. You always get to pay that discounted price and the money you save can really add up.
- Black Friday sale = $299/yr (and discounted every year you are a member)
The 2 Types of People This Offer is For
Before I answered this question, let’s first take a look at the different type of people who may be interested in this Black Friday special offer. As far as I see there are two different types of people that can take advantage of this…
#1 – Complete Newbies Who Have Never Done This or Have Just Started
So maybe you or a complete newbie. Maybe you just joined Wealthy Affiliate and are still a free Starter Member or maybe you haven’t even joined yet and are just thinking about it.
If this is you then you can potentially save a lot of money right off the bat, because this opportunity only comes around once a year. HOWEVER, you also have to be careful. Since you are new to this you don’t really fully know what you are getting involved with and the last thing you want to do is spend $300 on something that you later find out isn’t a good fit for you.
So if you are a newbie looking at this offer… Be careful. If this is something you see yourself doing for a long time in the future, then go for it, but if not then it may be a better idea to just become or stay a free Starter Member and test out the waters more to get a better feel for the system.
#2 – Premium Members Looking to Save More Money
And then you have the people that are already paying Premium Members but are looking to save a little extra money. You would think this would be every Premium Member that exists, because he wouldn’t want to save some extra money, but I only recommending taking advantage of this Black Friday offer to certain premium members.
Similar to what I just said, I would only recommend taking up this offer if you are a Premium Member that can picture yourself doing this for a while in the future. If you’re still hesitant that you want to build an online business with Wealthy Affiliate long-term then it may be a smarter choice to just stay with the monthly payments so that you won’t lose as much money if you quit.
However, if you are someone that is serious about this and foresee yourself working from home in the future, then why not take advantage of the discount offer? Even if you are already a paying Premium Member you can still take advantage of this offer and in the future you will only have to pay the discounted $299 price every year.
But is it really worth it?
If you follow the training, but in the work, and eventually go on to make good money with this, potentially even making a living out of it, then is it worth it? I bet you would say Heck Yeah… But if you start the training and slowly fade away, losing focus and eventually giving up, is it worth it?
The answer just depends on the results that follow, which of course you will not know before-hand. That said, the potential that it gives you to make money online can definitely be worth the leap of faith and the initial investment.
It was worth it for me..
Now if you have never been to my blog before then you probably don’t know who I am or my story. And I guess I should’ve introduced myself earlier… My name is Kyle and I’ve been making money online since 2015.
To make an incredibly long story incredibly short, I started looking for ways to make money online back in 2015 and wasted a lot of time before coming across Wealthy Affiliate, which I decided to give a try because it seemed promising. And now I’m here making a living online, consistently over $6000 a month and often times much more than that which you can read more about here if interested.
So was it worth it? For me it was most definitely and I attribute much of my online success to having found this training program in the first place.
What You Need to Know Before-hand
So obviously this isn’t a scam. It is just a nice discount on the normal Premium Membership that is offered. And as you can see Wealthy Affiliate can definitely be worth the investment. I am just one of the many people I know that have been successful with the program and have been able to turn their online business into a sustainable money maker. You can definitely make money with Wealthy Affiliate. However, there are a lot of variables at play and there are definitely a lot of people that fail.
What you need to know before hand is that this definitely takes a lot of hard work and if you are not motivated and really focused, if you only “kinda sorta” want to make this work, then there’s a good chance you could fail as well.
The time and work… There is no substitute. There is no middle ground. It takes both time and real work. While we all want some a shortcut “push-button” system, one of the realities I have come to learn over the years is that systems like this don’t exist… They are called scams
But anyways… I hope this short post help to put everything into perspective a little better for you so that you now know what exactly this Black Friday special is and whether or not it is something you should take advantage of.
The advantages of the Black Friday special include…
- Discounted price of $299 for a years membership
- This works out to be just $0.81 per day
- Recurring discount for every year you remain a member
- Access to everything that normal Premium Members get
- Satisfaction knowing that you just saved some money 🙂
The discounted price is great and all, but the last thing I want to leave you with here today is that this is not something you have to jump into. Only buy into the offer if you are serious about this and foresee yourself doing this for an extended period of time in the future.
