This is totally up to you though and you can upgrade whenever you feel comfortable doing so and at your own pace. The only costs you would have would be this when you first start out. As you advance in your training and you look for other ways to grow your business, you may want to invest in a good keyword tool and a email auto responder. That’s it though!

First of all, GREAT review, in fact the best I’ve read so far in my opinion. Not only was it informative, but it was personal to you and how it really has changed your life. I am in the similar situation you started out in. I’m almost 27, lol, not exactly living with my parents just yet, but if I don’t make next months’ rent then I will have to move back with them, and it’s not that bad, but I just prefer living on my own. I’ve done lots of research, read lots of reviews, and have even started with WA. I was just building my website when I noticed that some of the better platforms for the better websites were Premium, hence the research. I am now going to upgrade to Premium, as your review has officially confirmed the greatness of this company. Just thinking about how the possibilities are literally endless gives me a LOT of hope for my future. I have a lot of social anxiety and it’s hard for me to get a real job. I googled “how to make money today” and a site came up that recommended another site, then from that site I found WA, and now I am SUPER excited!!!!! I don’t know anything about marketing either, so I’m actually amazed how they teach you step by step how to do everything to make you successful!!! It’s such a great learning experience as well. You not only learn more about your niche, but you can learn about other niches and you learn how to be successful as well.
I would suggest that you get started by opening up your FREE starter account here so that you can check out everything WA has to offer you and you get the chance to experience for yourself how awesome WA really is without risking any money. If you like it and you would like to continue on in your training I would highly recommend that you upgrade to the premium membership as it has the most value.
This usually happens when you are signing up from the same IP address as someone who currently has a WA account. This could also happen if you are trying to sign up from the same computer as someone with an active WA account. If neither of these situations apply to you then I would send Kyle an email Kyle@wealthyaffiliate.com (Co founder of WA) and explain whats going on to him and he will get your account setup for you.
I was told by Nathaniell, on a pretty good site that I thought was legitimate, that I could enhance my existing site by adding marketing for products related to my already niche field of Kitchen Design, and get paid for it! Silly me! I thought it was somewhat curious that I could go to a company like Design Within Reach, and ask them if I could market for them, and have them pay me. I didn't see how this could work. There was some kind of program partnership that wasn't fully explained. So after much resistance I signed up with a backup email to try it out for 7 days, and see if I could learn as much as I could. 
You could of hosted your site that was built and learnd more valuable information If you became a member. You did not like the platform and or the knowledge that, I would say is of great value. Because you knew it already.  Are there flaws in communication maybe. The person led you to the information to try to help you. If it was the wrong information im sure you would of found the right info there.
A. There could be several reason for this error. You might have already created an account in the past and you forgot about it. Someone might have created an account using your email address. Someone might have created a account using your IP (internet connection in your house) and WA thinks it might be a duplicate account. Since I do not own Wealthy Affiliate I cannot help you with this. You can contact WA support directly and see how they can help you out.
The premium membership at WA is a no brainer when it comes to upgrading. No other online community comes close to what you will get at WA as a premium member. There is no obligation to join premium if you don’t want to and you can remain a Free member for as long as you like until you are ready to upgrade. Other programs can’t make that statement due to the fact that they are focused on ripping you off.
Hi Alex, Thanks for the great review of Wealthy Affiliate. I was doing some research for months whether to join or not. Now, I finally decided to join. I will join with your affiliate link. I will also definitely join premium membership. BUT, before I join I want you to answer me one question. Here is my case, I am from Ethiopia where there is no international banking or card, and PayPal is not functional either. But I find a way to get a master card from Payoneer(international MasterCard provider). Also I managed to load my card with $104 from fiverr. That’s all I got. This will cover 2 months of my premium membership fees. So my question is: From training I got from WA will I get $100 with the end of 2nd month to cover my 3rd and 4th month fees? (considering I will work to my maximum potential and my niche will be new trendy topic.)
As you can tell from her homepage, all of Andréa’s posts focus on all-natural, high-protein, delicious recipes. She has a niche, and she sticks to it! Whenever she calls out an ingredient that’s associated with an affiliate program she’s involved in (such as a protein powder), she hyperlinks that word with an affiliate link back to product’s website. 
You may have heard of ClickBank, one of the oldest and most popular affiliate networks. A billion-dollar company, ClickBank specializes in digital products like e-books and software, as well as membership sites. If you are comfortable selling information and don’t want the management and administration hassles of “real” businesses, this may be a good starting point. Its commissions can be anywhere from 10% all the way to 75%.
I guess what my question is.? Besides the monthly membership payment what else is involved as far as paying out of pocket to become an affiliate online marketer.? What about Fee’s to post on social media sites? Fee for a domain name? Besides 47.00 a month am I looking at around 200 or 500 or a $1000.00 to get up and running after I finish the training and videos? I’m pretty gunho about wanting to do a start up business online. I’m always doing something online figured why not try to supplement my income and have my laptop and Kindle fire and iPhone work for me… If it’s possible can you give me some clarification on total investment before I go ahead and do this. And thank you for your honesty.. I know nothing is guarantee ‘d but I have the drive to try and make a dime or two…. Have a Great day…

Watch them. How are other content creators in your niche utilizing advertising? What types of ads do they use? What are they promoting? What do they talk about repeatedly (if you keep seeing the same affiliate product show up again and again, there’s a good chance they’re making good money from it)? If you see a product or service they talk about that jogs your memory and you can ethically promote it too, find affiliate information by the methods described above.

As a member of Wealthy Affiliate, I highly recommend it myself. I also agree that in order to derive benefit or results, one has to put in sufficient time and energy. But other than that, with the help of WA training and support, the sky’s pretty much the limit. One can have 0 traffic or 100,000 visitors per month depending on how well one follows the instructions or training. I admit I myself have previously not followed all the instructions closely and spent too much wasted time on things that don’t matter very much (at least not in early stage of game) such as obsessing over which WordPress template to use, but now I remind myself to stay on track more and follow instructions.
Needless to say, I was blown away pretty quickly. Even by signing up for their free membership option, it was very apparent that Wealthy Affiliate does things differently. The community, recorded training, live ongoing weekly training sessions, live chat and support options, and business-like approach for beginners to pros alike really blew my mind.
