Hello business friends,
How is everyone this evening?
I'm reaching out to you to see if this is true. There is this member here, https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/mizanurbh

Hey John,

It's weird because I clicked on the message that he replied to my reply to his following me, yet there is no comment. I found my original comment, and the person who commented below me, replied to themself as the fuy's comment is missing.

Not sure what is going on!

Rudy

I'm glad you took the time to look, friend. This is very unusual. Is he some kind of hacker?
If he had replied on your profile page, please take a look.

He recently left a comment on my profile page, where I had replied, but the comments between him and I, are nowhere to be found. How can he delete my comment and his on my profile page at the same time?
I understand he can delete his comment on my profile page, but to delete mine also, should not have happened.

Yeah, that's what I said. The person below me replied to herself because all of his comments are gone.

I would suggest letting site support know, as maybe this guy's profile still remains.

I received an alert saying that he had posted, yet his profile came up without anything written yet.

Kind of weird.

8 sent him a private message, yet no reply.

It is a mystery, John...

Rudy

I get that on his profile page, friend. But did he ever comment on "your profile page"? If he did, please see if you can find it. I can't find his comment and my reply on "my profile page". How is that possible? All the best!

I will check that...

Rudy

Ok, nothing In my profile feed, as he started following me and I replied to his profile feed.

I scrolled down to the beginning of his profile feed, where Kyle and Carson Sen their emails to new members.
6-7 months ago was first message.
For days ago, the following was entered:

There is no visible response..

That's all I know...

Thanks for picking up the scent on this..I will continue to forage out clues.

On his profile, he has three profiles, one at LinkedIn, IG and FB. The IG link no longer exists.

I didn't check the other two.

Rudy

He must have deleted all of his blog posts, John, and if he did, then all of our comments disappear right along with them!

Jeff

That is only true on his profile page, friend. It is not possible on my own profile page. He can remove his comment but not the comment I left on my profile page.
The only person that can remove my comment including his, on my profile page is me. We should do a test.

I'll go to your profile page first to comment. If you can kindly then reply, I will try to remove my comment and yours on your profile page If that's possible, then I can put this to rest. So, please stay with me on this.

I just responded, albeit just now, John! I do remember; however when the hateful trolls were razzing me, and Admin removed them, my orphaned responses were still there like a sore thumb! Although, I could go in and delete those myself!

Jeff

Okay! I stand corrected, friend. You are 100% correct. I just deleted my "testing message" on your profile page and your reply was gone with it. That was a relief. Thanks!

But his profile page is still a mystery. The guy made everyone look insane as they look like they are having a conversation with themselves. For whatever reason that was, it is strange. I understand doing it to one or two people, but to everyone?

Thanks again for letting me do the test. It was worth it to know. All the best!

No problem at all, John! The rest is still a mystery!

Jeff

Following for answers like a few others.
Stephen

John, did you ask Mizan if he is aware of this problem? It looks like it is happening with everyone he responds to. He should report it to Carson and have him check it.
Archie

He doesn't reply, friend. I'm starting to think that this guy is some computer programming genius.
The fact that I had a conversation with him on my profile page and I can't see it now, bothers me. It's like we never had a conversation.
I even have the e-mail that I've saved where he had replied to my profile page where I have responded.

This is weird. if he can go to my profile page and delete both of our comments like it never happened, then that's something to be worried about.

I don't know how the other people that had commented there on his profile page, hadn't noticed anything. All the best!

Weird, for sure.

I saw his page said his Blog Roll hasn't started yet or something to that effect, Archie!

Jeff

But did you read the comments on his profile page? It looks like everyone there is having a conversation with his/herself. That is truly weird, friend.
Either he is suspended for spamming or he is good at hacking.

I want to know how he had removed my comment to him on my profile page. I understand that anyone can remove his/her own comment on anyone's profile after commenting.
But removing my comment as well on my profile page, should not have happened.
That's what I'm worried about. All the best!

I have a problem with that with another member just recently, John! I'll be interested to see what you find out!

Jeff

I see, friend. But it is now getting weirder. I can't find the conversation that he and I had on my profile page. How can he do that? Is he a hacker? I have the email notification to back it up. I always respond to my profile page.

This is getting to be something serious. I would like to know if he is suspended and maybe that's why his comments were deleted on my profile page and on his comment on his profile page with the others as well. All the best!

I looked at his profile, and it has his picture but is totally blanked out otherwise and says Member's Blog Roll has not started, or something to that effect, John!

Jeff

When you comment on a post here at WA you have the ability to mute the discussion so that you only get notifications when someone replies to your actual comment instead of getting notified every time someone adds to the thread. On a profile page, though, there is no such option. So when others add to the thread you still get notified since you’re a part of it. I wouldn’t worry about it too much.

That's not true, friend. My comment had no continual thread. So as the others. Please take a look at his profile page to see what I'm saying here. People are responding to the guy in a conversation like he's replying back to them. All the best!

What I’m saying is that since you can’t mute the discussion on a profile page, additional comments on that profile can trigger a notification to you in the same way it does when new comments are left on a post you’ve commented on even if they’re not a direct reply to your comment thread if you haven’t muted the discussion.

He may have decided to leave, deleted his comments to threads, who knows. But if others reply to that profile, at least for a while, it can trigger notifications to you. :)

I know what you're saying, friend. I've seen other profile pages where the person doesn't reply, and I don't get a notification. I don't know how you can come to that conclusion. I understand if someone made a comment under my thread, but not the way you're explaining it.
You might be right on the part where he is probably deleting his comments. But why would he do that? It makes no sense. All the best!

Happens all the time brother :)

Email Marketing

Hello business friends,
How is everyone doing? I would like to know your thoughts on using these marketing strategies. They are called regular personalization and hyper-pers

The great thing about affiliate marketing, and specifically how we’re taught how to do it here at WA, is that we’re not having to figure out ways to sell a personalized experience to our audience in order to get their attention and conversions.

We are actually set up so that *they* are the ones searching for *us*.

Our websites, instead of trying to be one stop shop mega stores like Amazon that have to find a way to draw your attention to something you’re actually interested in among the Infinite items they have available, are focused on very specific niches

This is for the specific reason that, when our audience reaches our site, they find *exactly* what they’re looking for.

So our real method of personalized content really relies more on thoroughly answering the question at hand, making that specific
user experience a good one so our audience can find their answer easily, and providing as much value as we can for that specific search :)

I understand and agree with that genius idea, I’m just more slow to understand than before. But I keep going

In the end, it doesn’t matter how long it takes for us to understand, it just matters that we keep working hard until we do, right? :)

John, one huge caveat to keep in mind before you pursue hyper personalization - this strategy requires a tremendously huge level of personally identifiable information (PII) which subsequently requires a high level of security. If you are going to try something like this, be prepared for all the expensive consequences as well, and buy good liability insurance. There's a reason why it's primarily the big companies can employ hyper personalization.

That is very true, friend. But there are companies out there that are creating hyper-personalization A.I. software programs that can do that. They may not be as efficient as the big guys, but they can hyper-personalized emails, ads, and landing pages in real-time.

For example, if you send a hyper-personalized(using an A.I.) email to one of your subscribers with a link to your hyper-personalized landing page, it can convert higher than the norm.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A poor email example would be:
Hi there,
Please check this link out! You'll like it.

This subscriber clicks on the link to your landing page and it tries to sell something.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A good example would be:
Hello Lisa,
How are you? I am reaching out to you based on your previous interests. I have something that might be worth looking at. Please click on the link below: whatever the link is

The subscriber clicks on the link to your landing page and it has the person's name(Lisa) with an introduction of what is selling. This will most likely convert better than the regular way.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hyper-personalization will benefit mainly e-Commerce and Affiliate marketers better. Based on this, what do you think? Are you for it?

I wouldn't consider that very hyper personalized, but go for it. If you feel that you've got all the PII locked down the decision is yours. I just don't want to mislead WA members into thinking that there aren't risks in using this information for this purpose, especially now that the FTC under Biden is determined to crack down on affiliates even more.

Didn't know that was the name for this type of marketing but I've experienced it a lot
I don't think it is controversial

I believe it is the same thing we do with our blogs after the customers finished reading
We have another related reading with another product to offer

Think about it
I will however, read Helen's blog to learn more

Yes, we do that with our blogs. But the difference is that we don't use an A.I. to gather all touchpoints of the intended users.

We are using regular personalization, which is not that effective for conversion.

Amazon, eBay, and other big techs use this method. We don't even come close to using all the touchpoints of the prospects to drive our conversion rates higher.

Matter of fact it'll take a lot of time to collect these data from each customer.

There are software programs out there that we can buy to do this more effectively. I just want to know if anyone is using them and what are their thoughts when it comes to gathering so much data about a person.

Thanks for the input. I appreciated. All the best!

I have no idea how hyper-personalization works, but I will check out Helen's post.
Thank you for the information, John.

Okay. Let me know what you think. Thanks for commenting. All the best!

Hey John,

Thank YOU for introducing a new term for me: "hyper-personalization"... I just had to look it up to see what you were referring to.

This is what Amazon does when we make a purchase, as they usually say something like: "we saw that you ordered _____ recently, so we thought you might like to also have ______"
...in hopes of us ordering more goodies.

That would be awesome for an eCommerce site, but I don't think it would do most affiliate marketers any good... or am I mistaken on that?

You're exactly right, friend. It is very good for eCommerce sites. However, there are software programs for eCommerce sites and for affiliates marketers to help with the conversion rates.

Would you use such a software program as an affiliate marketer?
Would you find it controversial for having too much data on any of your customers?

The only data my site collects is on visitors... and that's by Google for purposes of tracking.

Not sure what software program that you might be referring to, but I do not use any software for my affiliate links, other than Pretty Links... if that answers your question. Hope so. :-D

Any A.I. software programs that we can use, friend. There are some out there. Hyper-personalization is also another term used by A.I. for personalized Ads.

The ones we do are regular personalization. Pretty Links are just basic. It doesn't use real-time data to personalize ads, emails, landing pages, etc.

This is very good for eCommerce sites prospects and Affiliate marketers' prospects as well. Regular blogs, not so much.
All the best!

WA Affiliate Program

Hello Business friends,
I was browsing through my membership package and I've noticed that at the bottom under "Research" to the very last, it read, "Communicate with Mercha

John- if you want to affiliate market somebody’s product or services, you have to tell them that you want to do it. For example, if you want to sell WA click on the $ symbol to take you to the sign up area. If you wanted to a vendor that goes through ShareASale you go on ShareASale website find the vendor that you are interested in and apply. Venders like Amazon that do it their selves, just Google their website go to the bottom of their homepage & you will find “affiliate marketing”. Once you have created an account they will require info from you to determine if your capabilities meet their requirements of a person to represent them.

Good luck & good hunting.

Edward

I got that, friend. But it says in our membership package under "Research" at the very last, "communicate with merchants". So we do the product search, then we are allowed to communicate with the merchants directly? Is that how it works?

Product is first because it will be your Niche or part of your niche. Then you find the Vendor or vendors that you want to supply you with that/those products.

Edward

Ii have not used this function, but what I understood was that some merchants provide a contact person for their program and that we can content that person if we have questions about their program.

Sorta like Warrior Plus. You can communicate with the Merchants here as well?

That is what I understood. We have not had a need to do that yet.

Yes, inquiring minds want to know. 😎 how do You do it.

Just looking around friend. Lol! Thanks for commenting. All the best!

Cool !

Thanks for sharing.

Were you asleep? I asked a question. Lol!

Nah wanted to follow for answers. lol. But probably sleeping too, don't get much of it. hehe

It's all good, friend. Just having fun. Lol! Thanks for commenting. All the best!

From what I understand, John, it's the training that allows you to monetize your websites. It links you to those merchants that pay affiliate commissions when you advertise and sell their products from your site. Amazon and clickbank are two of the most widely used but Amazon commissions are smaller.
Archie

So, for me to start promoting, I will have to communicate with the merchants that are on W.A. to get permission. Is that what it means?

Yes, John. That's the way I understand it. They provide the contact info but you have to make the contacts.
Archie
