Choosing Your Wealthy Affiliate Membership Level – Starter or Premium

The Wealthy Affiliate Memberships

The beauty of the Wealthy Affiliate program is that you can start off with a FREE (Starter) Membership. And you can stay FREE as long as you like. You don’t have any Trial Period like so many programs are notorious for offering. We let you sign up for free and you can stay that way until the cows come home. Of course the benefits of going PREMIUM are numerous, so I have inserted the following Membership Options chart so that you can compare for yourself.

When I was first introduced to the program I, of course, opted for the Starter Membership as many people do, but I quickly saw the huge advantages of going Premium and upgraded within the first week of being involved and honestly have never looked back. NO REGRETS!

I even made my first Affiliate Sale commission within days of joining.


So, let’s take a quick look at the differences between the Starter and Premium Memberships. So you can figure out which plan makes sense for you.

The Starter Membership is, of course, FREE to join, and you as I mentioned earlier on are never required to upgrade that membership if it works for you. The Premium Membership can be purchased within the first seven days for a discounted price for the first month of $19.00 and then it costs $49.00 per month.

The Live Help is available to Starter Members for the First Seven Days, but always UNLIMITED and available to Premium Members.

Private Messaging between you and other members is a Premium Feature and not available in the Starter Membership package.

As a Starter Member, you are given two websites on the Site Rubix Platform, as opposed to 50 websites on the Premium Membership level.

Website Security Package keeping your customers confidence available as a Premium Membership benefit only.

Ongoing Website Backup on the Site Rubix Platform

Your VERY OWN Personal Affiliate Blog.

Two Essential Training Courses to get you up and running as quickly as possible The first is the Getting Started Here Course FREE to Both Starter and Premium Memberships, and then, of course, the Affiliate Bootcamp which offers Level One Training in the Starter Membership “Getting Your Business Started” But the Premium Membership Option offers six more courses in the Affiliate Bootcamp covering “Content, Keywords, and Conversions” “Giving Your Site Social Value” “Get Visual. Get Aesthetic. Get a Brand Through…” “Knowing Your Audiences & Catapulting Your Referrals…” “Bing, Yahoo, & The Power of PPC” and “How to Scale Successful PPC Campaigns” with each training consisting of 10 comprehensive lessons. So that in itself is 60 more lessons in the Premium Membership category.

Unlimited Access to the Live Video Training (Webinar) Classes for the Premium Memberships

Video Walkthrough Training is available at both the Starter Level and Premium Level Memberships.

The Keyword Research Tool comes with 30 searches in the Starter Membership but is UNLIMITED in the Premium Membership.

The Starter Membership option comes with 2 training classrooms as opposed to the Premium Membership which includes 12 training classrooms.

Both Starter and Premium Members are eligible for the Wealthy Affiliate Affiliate Program, however, the Premium Members receive commissions on sales at a rate of twice that of the Starter Members. This alone could easily pay for your ongoing membership fees every month.

The Ability to Earn While You Learn is offered to both Starter and Premium Members.

1 on 1 Coaching is available to Starter Members for the first seven days of membership and is offered as an UNLIMITED basis for the Premium Members.

Private Access to the owners Kyle and Carson, One of the first messages and offers of help that you will receive upon joining the platform is a welcome message from Kyle, and yes I have even had the opportunity to pick his brain on a couple of occasions. They really are committed to your success, and always willing to lead the way by their example. Of course, the access to them is reserved for the Premium Members

24/7/365 Website Support is a Premium feature and not available in the Starter membership, and those folks are incredible, my support questions were usually answered within moments, and believe me as an Affiliate Marketing Newbie there were plenty of those.

Website Feedback Platform is a Premium feature and not available in the Starter membership.

Website Comment Platform is a Premium feature and not available in the Starter membership.

Website Analysis is a Premium feature and not available in the Starter membership.
