Why, You Should Follow Other Members!

Last Update: November 11, 2019

Wealthy Affiliate is a Community ... some call it family as the relationships between members can develop into wonderful online friendships and sometimes in-person interaction at meetings or conferences or social events.

We have all been exposed to Social Media such as Facebook and Twitter who are based on making connections to other people and "Liking" or "Following" them so that you receive notifications of their posts and they are notified of yours.

A community such as Wealthy Affiliate depends on the volunteer services of the members to provide a lot of the value such as Live Chat, Responding to Questions, and Coaching other members.

The Members who are providing those services do so to help others to be successful and to build a network of contacts within the community.

You can see your network information just under your profile picture ... it will display the number of people who have "Followed" you on Wealthy Affiliate. These are individuals who have reached out to you to make contact and in many cases to offer help or to welcome you to the WA family.

Take a moment out of your busy day to respond to these people and thank them for reaching out or at the very least follow them back! Not only will your rank increase you will build a group of people willing to help you, if you need assistance.

Try to keep the number of people you have reached out to (Following) by clicking on the Follow Button very close to the number of people who have reached out to you (Followed).

Send messages to these people, engage and comment on their blog posts, get to know them ... they are all really nice, helpful people, just like you.

Follow people ... Be followed ... and Engage!

Very good article. I am looking to a successful career here. I have had nothing but bad luck all my luck and wanting to turn it around. I know that God is going to help me and all the rest of the good people on the site. God bless you.

Thanks for the information. By the way, I have already done it. I constantly make friends on a regular bases, because the only want one can build something is by connecting. That happens to be a given law in this universe. Those who connect are very large, and those who don't are very small. So small they have nothing, because they don't connect.

When I was in grad school, studying business communication, my mentor would remind all his students of the following: "We are part of an academy. We build on the work of those who came before us, and if we do the right thing those who follow will build on what we are doing. So, we have an obligation to not only strive for excellence but to also learn from each other."

I would say this also applies to WA. We are part of a learning and supportive community. This means we can learn from each other and offer support by following.

In sum, I totally agree with you.

Thank you! I am a new member! I am following quite a few members! I didn’t engage all weekend, as I had family stuff! I now feel overwhelmed by all the emails from WA in my inbox! I can’t seem to get to them all! I ended up deleting a lot just to get through them! Is this normal, in the beginning

Hi Laurie ... the volume of email can be overwhelming at times ... you can turn off email notifications in your profile settings, if you wish, and just use the internal notification system. (Bell Icon) I find that works best for me.

Thanks Carla ... yes, the international aspect adds a great deal to the experience. I have people I consider friends all over the world ... some I have met, others remain virtual!
Love and hugs to you ...
