You wanna learn how to make money online, and you think on creating your “free account” on Wealthy Affiliate, right? Don’t even think of doing that before you read this blogpost. I was a premium member, I promoted this company, made some money, but I don’t have an opportunity to withdraw it, sounds stupid? I will share with you two cool tips on how you can start saving $47 a month, and how you can save tons of money in future. Let’s go!
Ok, as you know, I’ve been promoting Wealthy Affiliate for a long time, I made a video, another video, and another video, and other videos. I invested so much time, efforts and energy into making these videos, into promoting my YouTube channel, I hired “beautiful ladies” from Fiverr to make a video presentation (by the way, some people say, it’s the same person, watch this short 30-seconds presentation below, and let me know what you think in a comment section. Btw, if it is the same person, it’s a cool marketing trick):
I got in an accident, hurt my lag while making that video, but how cares?
Moreover, I took part in a photoshoot. You don’t believe me? Here is an unedited photo:
“You’re an idiot, Alex July”, – you will say. “Stop containing, moaning, posting your ugly face, and let us know how we can save our money, and what we have to know before we create a free account at Wealthy Affiliate!”
“Yeah” – I will answer. “I’m an ugly unprofessional non-actor. Buy I was trying…”
“I believe that before you start promoting and recommending something you have to try it and to decide whether it is wohrty to buy, right?”
“Right!” – you answer.
I created a free account at Wealthy Affiliate, was a free member for a few months. Then I upgraded my membership. I started building relationships with other members.
According to their recommendations, I decided to make money by promoting WA. You promote WA, refer customers and make money. Why not, right?
I started a YouTube channel, wrote a few articles for this blog, started putting my affiliate links and banners everywhere:
I referred 4 referrals, one of them went premium (Hope, you’re doing well, bro). And, in one month I got this notification:
Oh, yes, It’s been a month. But I don’t want to be a premium member anymore, I just want to continue promoting WA. There must be some opportunity! And it does exist:
I tried to access my WA Affiliate page, but I didn’t succeed.
I sent a message to support and got this answer:
Wow, nice to get a message from Kyle! I have a video about Kyle and Carson.
The second part of this sentence sounds stupid, doesn’t it?
“I have to buy premium membership in order to get paid and continue promoting WA”
I thought, there must have been another option. But do you know what was the asnwer? It was short and shocking. And here it is:
Let’s take a good look at this resubscribe page, because I want that you fully understand what’s going on.
In order to be able to promote Wealthy Affiliate, in order to have this privillige to promote it, and maybe, to make some money in future, I have to pay $359 a year or $47 a month.
In order to withdraw my money I have to buy a premium membership.
I am a long-term thinker, and I enjoy planning my life in advance, and let’s multiply $359 times 3, and we’ll see that in order to have an opportunity to make money within 3 years, I have to pay more than $1000 dollars.
Are you kidding me?
I invested so much time, efforts, energy, I created this youtube channel, I hired freelancers on Fiverr, paid them money. As an honest person, I decided to try, to buy, before I start selling, before I start promoting, before I start recommending. And now you say that I have to buy your yearly saving plan????
I don’t want to learn, I have already learned everything I wanted to learn.
It’s nice, Kyle, that you are reading this blogpost, so post a comment below and let us know, who don’t you, guys, create an Affiliate membership for affiliates without access to lessons and tutorials?
There are so many reviews on the Web, on YouTube, people recommend Wealthy Affiliate. But why? Because Wealthy affiliate teaches how to promote Wealthy Affiliate.
You are paying $47 a month. Of course, you wanna earn back this money. Bu in order to withdraw your money, you have to stay a premium member FOREVER.
It’s a common issue, a lot of people would like to downgrade, but there is no opportunity:
But I don’t want to downgrade in order to continue learning somewhere in future. I want to continue promoting.
And I think they must enable downgrade to, let’s call it Wealthy Affiliate Affiliate account. I don’t need an access to lessons, videos, tutorials and webinars.
What I need is an access to my affiliate page, where I see my referrals, links, statistics, my already earned money and so on.
I believe that if you are an affiliate marketer, and before you start promoting some product or service, you have to try what it is. I did it, and I don’t want to pay 47$ a month to have an opportunity to promote.
This is stupid, isn’t it? Post a comment and let me know what you think about this issue.
I am an avid reader, as you know, and I read a lot of self-development. Right now I read “The Power of Self-Confidence” by Brian Tracy (amazing book, by the way).
According to this book, we have to learn from every failure. And this is what we can learn:
As I promised, the first trick: If you are an experienced marketer, and you want to promote WA, don’t buy premium membership, just promote, and you will save money, because there is no opportunity to downgrade.
The second trick:
What did I say in my videos?
“Go to Wealthy Affiliate and create your 100% free account”, or
That was a mistake. What should I do now? Remove those video? What if one day Bluehost comes to no good? For today I am pretty satisfied with my web hosting provider, and I do recommend it.
The second trick is: never rely on a certain affiliate program.
I think, in my next videos and blogposts I will be saying and writing something like this:
“If you want to learn how to make money online – go here” (and provide the link to http://alexjuly.com/gohere/
This is how it works:
As you see, I’m not going not promote a certain affiliate program, but my website’s page instead of this. On that page my visitors will find an actual information at any given moment of time.
Yesterday I promoted Wealthy Affiliate, today I promote this company. Someday I will create my own product.
This is the smart marketing, not the stupid one I was doing before.
This is why, ladies and gentlemen, I decided to stop promoting Wealthy Affiliate. I don’t like the way they run business, I don’t want to pay $47 a month in order to have an opportunity to place my affiliate links somewhere.
And as you understand, I will not withdraw my already earned money, because I don’t have an access to my account.
Kyle, feel free to buy an apple pie for that money. Or you can buy Coenzyme Q-10 pills. Or you can go to the Bank of America, open a savings account and start investing your money.
Now, the turning point. As you know, I am an honest person, and I am responsible for everything what I say, write and promote. That is why… If you want to learn how to make money online, if you want to promote a reliable company feel free to click here, go and create your 100% free account at Affilorama.
And be sure, you will ever have an opportunity to promote it, even when you finish your education.
