Tips for newbies - Getting Started

Last Update: September 26, 2019

I have noticed that many members fail to take a few important steps that will help them to be more successful on Wealthy Affiliate and Network Marketing ...

In no particular order ...

1. When you setup your WA profile invest some time in the process! This is your personality on Wealthy Affiliate ... if you wish people to follow you, help you or show you how to do things on the platform take the time to introduce yourself properly. Developing friendships with other members is one of the best paths to success ...

2. Ensure your profile gives a bit of background ... career, age, gender, real name, where you live, talents you have, experience with network marketing, etc. as much as you are comfortable sharing here ... this information is protected by secure https encryption ...

3. Use an image of yourself ... not your cute cat, dog or lizard ... people want to connect with you, not your pet ... don't hide behind a pet's picture. If you are a bit shy, this is your chance to come-out in a safe environment, and be yourself ... no one is going to judge you here .. be proud, be confident, be self assured ...

4. If someone follows you, or if you follow someone else, take a moment to post a comment at the same time ... say something about their profile, or at least wish them well in their efforts on WA

5. Be supportive and encourage other members to do their best and to follow the program ... offer to be a "Buddy" with someone at the same level as you! Mutual support and being held accountable are powerful motivators ...

6. Do not be afraid to ask for help in the Live Chat ... before you decide to leave the group ... I can tell you honestly I have belonged to a number of similar groups over the years ... none as supportive and nuturing as Wealthy Affiliate ... their 1.9 million members is a good indicator of the value this group provides!

7. Reach out to someone you respect and ask them to help you over a rough spot in getting your site going or whatever is holding you back from reaching your goals. Everyone I have met on this platform has been more than happy to assist ... you are not alone!

8. When taking courses be sure to ask questions of the instructor or fellow students ... we are all here to learn, there are no stupid questions ... in almost every case, your question will help someone else it the group.

9. Share your expertize, knowledge and experiences with others ... helping others is a powerful motivator to help yourself ... pay it forward ...

10. Above all .. never give up! You were born with all the necessary abilities to do anything you desire ... you just need now to unlearn the negative lessons life has taught you ... it is all there inside you, just waiting to burst out!

Best wishes

Allan

Well said Allan. The one thing I'd like to see more of is people leaving their name after each blog and on their profile. Jim

Hi Jim ..

Good one ... it is really important to use your name ...

No one wants to communicate with xyz3726 ... it just doesn't work!

12. Use your real name on your profile so people can address you personally and engage with you. Use your name on every post and comment so that everyone gets to know you and to see you are participating!

Hello Allan,

Thank you for your excellent blog post. You have mentioned some very true and important factors regarding, getting started.

It is almost impossible to communicate with someone when they have an empty profile and no photograph. I think we all like to know who we are dealing with and a bit about each individual, I mean this in a very positive way.

I particularly like your last paragraph, Allan. Giving up definitely is not an option, there is only one way and that is to keep moving forward and we will get there. I believe in my experience that consistency is the key ingredient to being successful.

Wishing you every success.

Roy
