Use The Tools You Have Within Wealthy Affiliate!
This is yet another short post for you today. Soon I will be able to stop adding this if I keep up with my effort to write more concise and focused articles maybe, hehe?
Today I just want to highlight one area of Wealthy Affiliate that I do not think people are leveraging as they could or should.
That is the "Follow Me On..." area of our profile pages.
What inspired this post was a private message from a member who obviously did look at my links in that area...
He mentioned that he liked my YouTube Channel and had subscribed. He asked if I would follow him as well, and offered to have me look at a recently posted video that he had published.
On Facebook, one video membership site and group I follow has a separate sharing group, and people who publish videos view, like, make comments on, and subscribe to one another's channels and videos in that group.
This is not unlike a similar site that I have on Facebook where people who are not hosting their websites with SiteRubix can do the same for their blog posts. It can help with SEO and if you are not using that feature here, I highly recommend you do start using it.
Here is a picture of MY "Follow Me On" area - have a look!
NOTE: You will notice I list number of pertinent links to online areas of my business outside this platform...You should have your links added in this area of your profile too!
How Else Do I Use The "Follow Me On" area of my profile?
Glad you asked! I also have my digital business card, my appointment calendar, a Pinterest-like site where we highlight some of the services, products, training, and materials that our company offers, our private support site, and of course a couple of websites.
You can and should be doing the same. When you send people to your profile page from other platforms, they can then see more of what you have as a business. Plus other people within Wealthy Affiliate can see and have a look.
Your online presence is important and having more points of potential contact for prospects is going to help your name and brand become well-known to others in your niche. I also recommend commenting on posts from well-known figures in your niche.
I do regularly and attempt to add value when I comment (I have some great backlinks as a result too). Another thing I do is share posts from their sites on my social accounts, and that includes ones from Wealthy Affiliate!
Believe it or not, these people notice that and they will bend over backwards to help you out when you need it (I have been the recipient of such help more than once since starting this online stuff).
The virtual handshake works too - share, like, follow, subscribe, comment on members' sites!
What YOU Can Do For Me and I CAN DO For YOU...
Follow, subscribe, like, post a comment, on any of my platforms and I will do the same! That is easy and we all can do that for one another.
No harm, no foul, just looking out for fellow online marketers who have a common ground as members here within the Wealthy Affiliate platform.
I think the sharing of your YouTube channel and helping one another out is not going to break any rules, as we are all in a similar market segment and we can learn from one another, and help one another at the same time (by subscribing, liking, following one another, etc,)...
This goes for the other social media platforms as well...
Helping one another to succeed is MORE than a JOB - in my case, it is my passion, and it is a total commitment to YOU!
Now that you are perhaps a little more aware of the power that the "Follow Me On" area can potentially have, I do look forward to seeing a lot of channels that I can like, comment on the videos for, and make comments on.
I also look forward to receiving the same back from members! Add your links below or send me a private message and I will take action as I hope you will. Let's boost one another totally when it comes to our businesses!
Please tell me if I am full of it, or if this is a good idea, or add whatever else might be on your mind this fine day in the comments below! Oh yes, like this too please so we can spread the word and get EVERYONE here involved!

P.S. Under 800 words! Dang I am getting better at this writing short posts! : )
