How cliche, I know. This is a phrase that you have probably heard a million times over the years, but it is one that is truly relevant right now. It is the art of taking a BAD situation, and turning it into a GOOD outcome.
Look, I get it. Times are tough right now. There are still a lot of unknowns for all of us. Nobody has experienced a pandemic in our lifetime. The pandemic in this case, is going to be our LEMON.
Lemons are sour. And so is the state of the world right now (although there are many amazing things happening simultaneously)
We want to take this pandemic, and utilize it for the betterment of ourselves and take all the “good” we can out of it. In other words, we are going to crush these lemons, add a little sugar and come out with some delicious lemonade.
So what does this lemonade look like? Well I will be getting to that. First though, I want to focus a bit on the lemons.
I have experienced a lot of lemons over the years…
I remember back in 2008. The financial crisis.
This was a true financial crisis, where people didn’t have money for an extended period of time and millions of people lost their homes. The stock market crashed in parallel with the housing market, and it felt like the economy was never going to recover (it ultimately did, and went on to the biggest winning streak in the history of the market and economy).
We were able to grow and thrive during 2008 within the online world amidst this economic turmoil. We were able to make lemonade from the situation.
I remember when I started out online and I had ZERO dollars. I was in school full time, I felt like I was up against a wall. I didn’t even have a credit card, I had to borrow my girlfriend’s (now wife). It couldn’t get any worse than that…I was able to start an affiliate marketing business and here I stand 18 years later being full time online. I took that situation which felt like rock bottom at the time, and turned it into lemonade.
That is just a few or MANY potential examples.
What I am getting at here is that in times like we are dealing with right now with the COVID crisis, you can either let it get you down, or you can take the bull by the horns and use it as motivation to drive you forward and to better yourself, better your life, and truly do something that you are passionate about.
The reality is that the Internet affords you the ultimate opportunity.
If you are like most right now, you are spending more time than ever online…spending most of your money online vs offline. I know first hand that I have moved exclusively to buying things online, much of which required research, and much of which lead to an affiliate marketer or an online business generating revenue from my purchases (and ad clicks).
In all my years online, I have actually never seen the Internet this rife with activity and opportunity. The crazy part is that I write this as I am in “lock down” in Canada, under government orders until summer at the earliest to social distance. Almost all businesses are closed…no restaurants, no clothing stores, no barber shops, etc (I haven’t had a haircut in 6 weeks lol).
And this brings me to our “yearly price increase”.
As awkward of a time it is to raise our yearly price, it is something that we have wanted to do and had planned to do it long before the pandemic started. We were simply going to warn members about it, and if people wanted to get in at the existing $359 yearly price, they could.
However, we know that times are tough for a lot of people, and true to our mission over the years we have put YOU first in our business, not money. That is the reason why we haven’t raised our yearly price in the past 15 years in the first place. That is right, 15 years ago when we started Wealthy Affiliate we offered a yearly membership for $359.
And we were a small little keyword list website, certainly not what Wealthy Affiliate is today, the industries most trusted and respected platform for affiliate marketers and internet entrepreneurs.
We evolved. We continue to evolve.
But we have never updated our yearly pricing.
In my email to you the other day, I mentioned that we are going to be giving you the Black Friday pricing of $299 for an entire year of our Premium membership. That is our lowest pricing ever and you can get grandfathered May 11th, 2020 at 11:59PM PST. Beyond that our price for Premium yearly will be $495, which still provides a great discount over monthly.
That is going to change on May 11th, so you have until then to get a $299 yearly membership.
This works out to less than $0.83 per day (for those that are into the full mathematical breakdown).
Get the offer below, if you are wanting to take the bull by the horns in the year ahead and get an entire year of Premium for only $299.
Also, I am going to be doing a bonus one our live class offering you insight into how you can take this current “lemon”, and turn it into lemonade within the online world. I am going to be walking you through how to create a thriving business during an economic crisis. I was in my 6th year “full time” within the online world during the last crisis, and I know I am going to be able to provide you with a great deal of insight on how to thrive during and coming out of this one.
Here are some of the topics I am going to be discussing in detail within my over 1 hour class.

I remember a lot of different moments in my life where I took what many would feel as a horrible situation, and turned it into a positive one. If you are feeling even remotely defeated, any business owner or any person can relate to these trials and tribulations. It is getting through these and pushing forward which will lead to a “better than ever” outcome.
Stay safe Dave. If you have any questions or need a hand with anything, do know that we are also here for you. Drop me a reply to this email and I will be happy to help you out.
I hope you are in a position to take advantage of the offer, but either way I wish you nothing but a healthy and successful year ahead. We are all in this together, and we are going to beat it together!
