As someone who has been a member of WA "welcome aboard!"
James has pretty much covered everything very well - as he does, but there is one other thing that I'd like to add.
At WA the tutorials are pretty standard but if you needed information that was not presented as part of the course then you had to spend hours sorting through all the 'other tutorials' from members. In the end it is very much a community lead site - which is OK for people who know what they are doing, really tough on newbies.
Affilorama is lead from start to finish by Mark Ling and his team and it is this consistency that makes their tutorials and site so great and easy to follow.
The best part is that all the relevant info that you need is free - you don't actually need to pay $67 a month.
The AffiloBlueprint course packages all the info that you will need to get going in a really tidy package....nothing left out, really easy to understand and awesome value - but the tutorials cover Xsite Pro and Wordpress site set up - so you will probably struggle with Dreamweaver.
AffilJetpack will be something else as most of the work will be done for you - you do pay more for this, but it is a one off fee and extremely good value as well.
Have a look through James' link for AffiloJetpack, download the stuff, get on the mailing list and you will start to see what the hype is about. It goes on sale on 27 July so a proper 'sales' page will be available then for you to look at.
I believe that WA will be trying something similar but it is nowhere near as comprehensive and you are still locked into that $99/month contract.
If you decide to cancel your membership with WA then you will need to check out how much of what you have done can be transferred out with you. (eg - have you got a site done with Site Rubix? Have you set up one of their blogs? Are any of your domains hosted with them?)
Sorry, I have gone on wayyyy more than I thought I would - but certainly hang around here a bit longer for free until you have made your mind up. we're a pretty cool bunch ;o)

(I am saving up for a Jetpack from my blueprint earnings).
The key point is to stick with it and follow the course. How far through the WA course did you get?
chris72 wrote:As much as I hate to say it, you are paying for the WA course, and as a basic course it is OK. Go through it and complete it, if you don't start to make money at the very least you will work out where you are having trouble. Maybe the free lessons here will help you to fill in the gaps.
Good luck, come back and let us know how you getting on.

Perhaps Mark will put together a payment plan for people who cant come up with the cash all at once.
