Why, You Should Follow Other Members!
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!
