How to Get More WA Referrals.

Last Update: May 16, 2020

OK, WA family experts, I am ready to recruit more referrals and have them upgrade to Premium so they can get all the training they need to be successful like we are. I am looking for all the ideas you have and how you have convinced people to join and upgrade.

Here are Things I Have Done.

  • Have posted ads on several social media outlets and had limited success and of course Facebook keeps killing my ads.
  • Created several types of WA product reviews and articles on my MMO site and I get plenty of readers, but not tons of sign ups.
  • Posted Black Friday articles on many social media outlets. No one seems to care how great that deal is.
  • Pinned multiple great articles and pictures with links on Pinterest.
  • I am posting on linked-in routinely in several affiliates and entrepreneur groups.
  • Have a social media scheduler that posts for me on Facebook, Twitter and Linked-in on a consistent basis, all of my articles.

I am sure Have done much more, but you get the general idea. Have done a lot.

Have not done YouTube videos yet and I probably should get on that.

Have been doing these things for two years now so I am getting a bit frustrated that I haven't achieved many more sign-ups.

What Have You Done to Get Sign-ups at WA?

I would love to hear some out your amazing recruiting methods. I am dying to get to Vegas next year so help me and everyone else out to get there.

Looking forward to some great responses!

Have a great and SAFE day!

    Hi Curtis,

    When I read your post I felt that it could be me who wrote it ha! December will make two years for me and I have yet to get the results I seek.

    Tiffany gave you some fantastic advice that spoke to my situation too.

    Anyway, here is my two cents worth. My mentor on WA who is a six figure earner from Australia, advised me to stay focus on just a few things and learn to do them really well. For example, pick just one social media type to work on. It may take trying out a few to find out what works best. Use the analytics to confirm which one it is. Then go all out to learn what other successful members do using that outlet.

    The most important activity I should do is to keep writing great content. Check out the content of other successful affiliate marketers and learn how they are doing it. From that I should develop my own unique style. But it makes good sense to incorporate the principles they use. And off course, use Jay's lessons on using great SEO practices in every post.

    Another key lesson I learned is how your website is constructed. My mentor saw mine that I had a very large heading picture. He told me that will prevent a visitor for seeing the first paragraph of my content without scrolling down. It is amazing how many visitors will NOT do that. Instead they will move on to something else. It is the content that matters, not pretty pictures that people want. Of course, use pictures but where it supports the message of the article.

    Finally, he told me not to use paid ads until my articles resonated with my visitors sufficiently to get sales. Otherrwise you will be wasting your money. And that means waiting till you have at least 100 articles posted. I only have 65, so ways to go.

    All of this leads to running your business from the perspective of providing solutions to your visitors. Just because WA is such a great deal, it will make no difference if that is all you are relying on to get referrals. It was only after I had written 40 posts that it dawned on me that if I came across my posts through a search, I would not pay much attention to what I was saying. So I made some changes.

    After doing that I noticed my traffic increasing. Not enough to get sales but moving in the right direction.

    My job is to stay focused and write those three posts a week that is such a challenge for me. The most I can usually write is about three every two weeks. I have ways to go.

    It is OK to feel frustrated. We all do. However, you are doing the right thing in asking for help. Most members will just give up. I commend you for taking this action.

    I will be reading the responses you will be receiving because I know I will pick up tips that can help me too. SO thanks for writing this post Curtis.

    All the best to you.

    I have also been wondering about that. My WA site, though, still has a tiny amount of impressions, so it's soon to judge my website, but still, I would like to know what else can be done. I have also done most of what you listed here, except for the scheduled social posts.
    TDomena has a brilliant answer. :-)

    Hello Curtis,

    Thank you for your very honest and interesting blog post, there are some interesting answers here.

    I believe the best thing you can do is to write frequently and make YouTube videos alongside your blog posts. I'm not actively promoting Wealthy Affiliate, however, I have other products that I promote and the principle seems to work.

    Wishing you all the best.

    I went to your site and have one suggestion--create more content consistently. You have 3 posts from February, but the latest before that appears to be November and September of last year.

    I've had periods over the last couple of years where I wasn't able to post consistently, and there was definitely a downturn in my traffic after a couple of months.

    Now whenever I have too much going on to create as much content as I would like, I go back to old posts, refresh them, and then republish.

    I hope this helps--good luck!

    Yes, I have been doing other things on both my sites. I am updating all my content right now and then I will be back to writing new articles. I have several queued up.

    If you're having limited success, I recommend shaking things up.

    For starters, find out WHY your ads don't convert.

    Are they congruent with your WA offer? Are you sending traffic to your review or directly to a WA affiliate link?

    Kyle's Bing ads training has some golden nuggets ;)

    Also, WHY are your blog readers not converting?

    Are your reviews based around "affiliate marketing" products or MLMs and survey sites etc?

    Are you sending blog visitors to your main WA affiliate link or a custom WA link?

    Keep asking yourself WHY nothing converts and continuously test different strategies until you find the winning combination.

    Also try and build a brand on Reddit and Quora, they're great platforms that can generate you some nice targeted blog traffic.

    Thanks for the suggestions, Neil. I will make sure I am doing them all, but I am pretty sure I am. I went through the same training here.

    I have gone through the Bing ad training.

    I send traffic to multiple possible EA offers, depending on the article.

    I am sending a lot of people to WA through my different methods, including my blog posts. Isn't it up to WA to then convert them once they are here checking things out?

    I use Quora and Reddit. I enjoy asking and answering questions on Quora. Pinterest is one of my favorite social media outlets right now and I get many thousands of visits there.

    You'e welcome!

    YUP, WA makes the sale.

    But it's your job to give folks the info they need beford they land on your affiliate link.

    Looking through some of your blog posts, you're sending visitots diriectly to your affiliate link instead of your WA review.

    Replacing those links with your review can make the world of difference.

    I also see that you have some MLM reviews, so start writing more reviews around affiliate marketing products and services. There's a ton of them out there on Clickbank and JVZoo.

    You can even do "best of" posts on affiliate marketing books, forums, website builders, training platforms, etc, and send visitors to WA that way.

    There are plenty of directions.

    Finally, I'd recomemnd removing your WA affiliate banner from the top of your posts because you're selling to folks right off the bat - when value must come first.

    Hope this helps.
