My WA Ranking Looks Like the Stock Market!

Last Update: March 25, 2019

Or maybe like a heart monitor gone crazy.

Up and down, my ranking goes.

Up and down, my life goes. Somedays I get a lot done, other days none at all.

The numbers are only an indication of participation in WA, which, I admit, is very weak these days. Too busy building websites and doing training, and lax in reading posts and making replies.

There are so many things to do at WA, and I have yet to figure out how to do them all. It doesn't help that I'm single minded and once I start a job, I charge ahead until its done, and neglect the rest.

The learning curve at WA keeps on rising. The more I learn, the less I know. Just when my website seems ready to go, there is more to do. One day, I'll get the hang of this!

I am about ready to launch my fourth book and a website to go along with it. The main reason I joined WA is because I was looking for a way to promote my books. I was rather skeptical if this was the place, considering all the hovels on the internet that give you bad advice and take your money!

There is a bunch of gobbledy-gook advice for promoting books on the internet, and I was at my wits end as to how to go about it. The "experts" tell you, but they don't show you, and expect you to go it on your own - or you can pay them a bunch of money and you may not get what you pay for.

Well, we will see how this website does! I am very proud of it. And it didn't cost an arm and a leg.

You know, SSL certificates, site speed, SEO tricks, plug-ins, and all the other "essentials" that go along with running a website. The things that run in the background that WA takes care of for us (or shows us how to do it).

Today, my WA ranks are rising up again after I spent some time reading posts and replying.

I would love to hear how you do it. How do you keep track of all the people you follow, read their blogs, offer trainings, and stay connected? I have an inbox dedicated spefically for WA posts, and it is always oerwhelmingly full, full, full.

Such is life. I wish I was living in a mountain retreat with no phones or interruptions...

One day, when my websites and books start making money, I will join the others who tell us of their glorious success stories. They have exactly the same tools the rest of us have. There is no reason not to succeed at WA.

Wallace Wattles wrote a book called The Secret of Getting Rich. He says the way to succeed in business, and life, is to do things in a certain way. This is what they tell us at WA.

Build your website in a certain way and you will have success.

Not to worry. My heart is healthy - and the stock market - well, some days it is better to put your money under your mattress (or in a Swiss Bank Account).

Sometimes I think the same thing especially when the rank doesn't move in a while and then all of sudden it will move either up or down and then you start to wonder how it happens either way. I know that I do.

I still don't have a method to the madness as of yet except that I have separated all my emails into categories so that if I need something I can find it.

Hi. Thanks for reading my post. Yes, it is a little hard to keep up sometimes. I see from your bio you have some health problems. I hope things are better for you.

You are so very welcome it was my pleasure, Carol, and yes I have alot of health issues that is why I can't work outside the home for that reason. So it was a blessing when I received an email for WA.

So it all works out for the better. I can work and still be at home which is great. It is a win-win situation.

I can tell you are a writer, because your post is very well-written. Good job!

I'm with you on not knowing how to do everything that needs doing in WA. We just have to do our best and hope we are going in the right direction. Doesn't take long to figure out if we are.

That's true, we stumble and fall. Fortunately for the great people here, there's somebody to pick us up! I'm glad you enjoyed my post.

Great post, Carol!
I joined WA a few months back and at that time, I didn't realize the significance of interacting with the community. When I started replying to daily posts and (I only have 3 so far) creating my own posts, my rank very quickly went up. Members started sending me private messages and asking me questions - looking to me as a mentor!! As of today, I am under 1,000!!
That is truly significant to me considering there are over 1,000,000 members using this platform.
I try to spend time each day reading and replying, following and (at the very least) liking someone who follows me. If I'm not careful, I can easily spend hours on here watching live webinars, reading tutorials, or simply just being social...then nothing gets done. I do not spend time working on my website or completing my OEC.
It's a tough balance. I need to set a schedule. Routine is everything!

Best of luck on your journey to success!

Amy, you have been busy the short time you've been at WA. Time is the issue. Like you, I could spend all my time reading and replying to posts, and all the other things you listed. Plus working on my website. Like you, I'm trying to find a routine where it all fits in!

Glad you enjoyed my post. Good luck in your endeavors.
