The Price – who offers more bang for your bucks?

Wealthy Affiliate:

They are offering a promo on your 1st month where you’ll pay $19 once you go Premium within 7 days of signing up.

Basically, they have 3 payment options. The longer you choose to stay, the cheaper you’ll pay:

  • MONTHLY = $49 per month ($1.63 per day)
  • 6 MONTHS = $234 for 6 months or $39 per month ($1.30 per day)
  • YEARLY = $359 per year or $29 per month ($0.98 per day)

Affilorama:

You also have 3 options but it will be 3 different products:

They offer AffiloBlueprint for $37. They also refer to this as a Guide for Passive Income.

They also have a promo for AffiloTools on your 1st month where you’ll get it for the cheapest price of $1 and $67 per month thereafter.

Then you have the option to buy AffiloJetpacks for $997.

The product options are quite confusing at first and I honestly have to read the different features of each product a couple of times before it sinks in.

The Good, The Bad and The Catch

The Good

Wealthy Affiliate

  • Wealthy Affiliate community is a bunch of caring and paying it forward members. But don’t take my word for it, I suggest you try at least the free membership and see for yourself.
  • The step-by-step online courses will make any newbie proud of themselves upon completing them. Their websites will be up and running by then.

Affilorama

  • Although it’s not that much active, you can find good topics in the forum and you can also find a good deal of useful info from their blogs.
  • The action-based courses will also make any newbies kickstart a journey with zero knowledge to someone who can walk the talk and become one of the successful entrepreneurs.

The Bad

Wealthy Affiliate

  • Tons of trainings available which can be overwhelming particularly for newbies

Affilorama

  • Tons of trainings available which can be overwhelming particularly for newbies
  • Once you are member, they keep offering you upsell

The Catch

Wealthy Affiliate

  • The biggest factor in your success depends on your own effort. If you don’t take action, it will be hard for you to earn money

Affilorama

  • The biggest factor in your success depends on your own effort and money. And even if you already bought their most expensive product, your money will just go down the drain if you don’t follow and take action on the given task.

  • Affilorama: 1pt

My Final Opinion

As with any other business, you need to exert efforts in order to earn profit. Both companies offered pathways to help you succeed in Affiliate Marketing. The only factor that will determine your success will be whether you are willing to spend time to take action on the given tasks throughout the courses.

Both companies are established to help noob and experienced affiliate marketers achieve passive income streams. By helping other succeed in the affiliate marketing industry, you are also helping the owners get richer. Although, I must admit that they also re invest some of their wealth to keep the platforms up to date.

Overall Score:

Wealthy Affiliate:15 pts

Affilorama:10 pts

Conclusion

Both Wealthy Affiliate and Affilorama are legit companies. Both offer starter or otherwise called free membership so you can try the program and see for yourself before you spend any penny.

But overall winner is Wealthy affiliate in terms of overall user experience, support from members, coaches and owners. Their paid membership will give you more bang for your bucks.
