Affiliate Marketing Experience is Yours for The Asking.

Last Update: May 31, 2017

One of the first introductory advice every new member receives at Wealthy Affiliate is to ask lots of relevant questions. Affiliate marketing is a faceted field, and you cannot learn everything by the book. You need good advice to gain experience.

Be concise, and as accurate as possible when asking questions here. Avoid irrelevant questions or questions not on topic. Members appreciate questions but can be irritating to receive questions that are not relevant or questions just for question sake.

And then there are the members who consistently ask questions that they should have found answers for within the various courses and is an indication that member did not read the training material. Following the courses step by step is necessary.

Remember, the community members enjoy helping you but they are also human and to err is human. So you could receive a wrong answer, and it is your duty to study each answer you obtain to ensure it is the right answer for you.

One of the best means of getting several correct answers is by using the WA search bar. Click on the star to the far right to create a tag for searches you return to frequently. (see image below).

Enter your questions in the search bar to view the various titles and choose the one that appears more relevant, or choose the titles members select the most. In most cases, you can search by using the most appropriate word in the question. The word "How" alone will display titles. Instead of "How to find keywords" type "keywords" or "find keywords."

Try finding your next question by first using the WA search bar. It is one of the best means of obtaining answers at Wealthy Affiliate.

It is always very important to spare some time researching before asking something lightly.

God bless you for writing this post! One of my most common answers to questions, or repeated suggestion, is to follow the training and DON'T SKIP STUFF.

Thank you for outlining this in a clear way and offering the search bar tip. Of course, that's included in the training.

Wishing you all the best.

Blessings,
Mike

Great information, Trevor. This is something that new members need to be aware of. I found it by accident, and it probably has saved me from asking repeat questions.

Much easier to use the search bar than the write (pen) icon.
