Someone at WA Asked Me

Last Update: June 23, 2016

A fellow affiliate here at WA sent me this PM right after I followed his profile:

"Don't get me wrong miss, you fall under top 100, and i am still nowhere here. C'mon, 5073 rank is nothing in-front of you. How you will be benefited by following me?"

I've received some similar PM's here before too when I was still at 100+ rank. It's food for thought to me because at some point, I was like that. I was overwhelmed with the amazing welcome and greetings in this community that I also asked that before (to myself, though.)

While having a high rank here is just a number (I have yet to understand if there is any gains or incentives for being on top, aside from gaining more motivation), WA rank has nothing to do with one's ability to be successful.

In fact, I've seen a few members here who keep below the radar, but are very successful in their internet marketing.


So how does one benefit from following someone here, regardless of their rank?

We have different reasons. Mine is simple: to make friends. Being a newbie here can be very hard, but knowing that you are sharing the same journey, ups and downs, and the same dizzying climb up to the top, makes the experience even more awesome.

Cheers to making more friends!

Rank here has nothing to do with knowledge or internet success, it has merely to do with activity on this forum, with writing blogs and attending the live chat.

I have seen people climbing rank here by placing under every question the answer:"I like to know that too, or I don't know the answer, I hope someone else can help you". "I see I am too late, you have your answer already". Or just repeat a given answer. People who are "pretending to read" every blog, and reacting to it. All just for the rank.

I agree Loes, have seen this too. I try to comment when I have learnt something no matter how small, or when I see a comment like this which provides a mindset opinion.

It's a nice way to thank the active members of WA by giving them a number, just like in kindergartenwhen you get nice star stamps for being active. But somehow it has become a competition of sorts to other members.

I am aware of the fact some are using the system that way

This is a very legit point of discussion and you've got one good reason to connect with any member here @ WA. Yet another reason for me is networking ~you never know where people can lead you and you can always learn something from other people's experiences. Who we are is not determined by the number attached to our profiles nor the number of followers we have in our network. We can never underestimate anyone becoming a member here @ WA.

That's a good point too, and you're right people can definitely lead you to things and places that might be of use to you but have never thought of before.

Nice post Peral. I too have been inspired by all the people I have met here. Without such a warm welcome I may have left in the beginning as this is very new to me. Instead I have made friends, learned from experienced marketers and newbies like me. We all have something to share. Thank you for sharing

Well said Peral, this whole Internet song and dance is about networking and creating a following to do that it is about adding value. We are in a unique situation here at WA, the whole platform has taken on a life of its own, it is a growing living thing, if you asked Kyle or Carson if they would have thought that it would have grown and developed the way it has, " not in their wildest dreams " we get to share in all this, awesome. Share the WA way it is very cool on all levels.

You hit the head right on the nail, rank is just a number, it does not mean you are raking in the money or successful in the business. Some use rank for motivation, recognition, or like you, to make friends. Whatever the case may be, we are all here to learn and apply this knowledge to our unique circumstances and hope that others will share their journey to make ours a more fluid one.
