When looking to start a website, many of these “so called” website training sites may only offer you the training to get the basic knowledge to start for a subscription price with giving you only a limited amount of tools or no tools at all leaving you to purchase everything needed to start, including a website.
After that, it is come and pay for everything else, and pay you will. There is nothing more discouraging than when you get to a certain level, having to empty your pockets more to advance.
Wealthy Affiliate offers training and websites for free. Is there an upgrade? Yes, but is very affordable at $49 per month. There is absolutely NO forced up-sales for you to keep going and build a profitable website.

My Overall Opinion
In my own personal quest to gain the ability to start my own business, I entered into “so called” opportunities that would give me training and point me in the right direction. But I would find these pointed directions would only wind up costing me more money with little or no financial return.
Yes, I am a member of Wealthy Affiliate (Seahawk8058), you can find me in there. Out of all of the programs and “home business” start-ups that I have become a part of (and lost a lot of money with) Wealthy Affiliate affords me, and anyone else, opportunity to get a home “internet based” business up and running quickly and continues to provide up-to-date, cutting edge training so that your business can evolve to the level needed to keep your business strong and providing you a desired income stream.
