How Do You Get 300 Paid Referrals? Explained By The Numbers!
Last Update: Feb 4, 2023
I love this time of the year. When the WA Conference is over and Kyle along with the Super Affiliates tell us about their Las Vegas Experience.
Every member of Wealthy Affiliate should know the criteria to get there. In the course of one calendar year achieve the magic number of 300 paid referrals.
You may not know this but if you sign up a paid referral and they decide to leave, that still counts. Of course, we all would like our paid referrals to stay on as long as possible. Life being what it is that doesn't always happen.
I did some thinking today and came up with the following scenario. We have 365 days in a year. But let's say we only succeed in attracting referrals on 300 of those days.
On each of these 300 days on average, we are successful in attracting 10 referrals. Say we have a 10% conversion rate. VOILA! There you have it. 300 referrals.
Vegas, here we come! It actually can be as simple as that.
The Missing Link
What is missing in this equation?
First, you need to make WA as your preferred niche. My guess is that most members of WA have other niches. That is perfectly OK.
If you make a fortune elsewhere, you will not get an invitation to the WA Conference at Vegas. But who cares! If you succeed in your business, then you can go to Vegas any time and live it up if you want to.
Second, you need to target people who need to build websites to attract a lot of traffic and conversions for any reason whatever. It may or may not have to do with affiliate marketing. The critical factor is you must know who this audience is with crystal clarity.
Third, go all out to find these prospects and help them to meet their online needs. Hard focused work is necessary. Do just one thing at a time. Consistently.
So what really is the missing link? It is US!
It Starts With A Trickle
Very few things in life happen instantly. Definitely not in building a business. Even when we work our buts off, progress starts as a trickle.
As long as we have confidence that we are following the formula taught here and never give up, that trickle will flow into a torrent of referrals.
It requires FAITH, FOCUS and FORTITUDE to make it happen. That is what makes a Super Affiliate.
As the long time sage Nike says, "Let's Do It!"
I'm excited about going to Vegas the WA conference one day. Why not in 2024. Why not. Are you?
You have inspired me to use one of my many domains left that I probably will never use all, thanks to Premium Plus benefits.
Time to build a site for this new niche WA, may as well. I have a love and passion for everyone and everything here. Why not take it to the next level and share about it and let the cards play out towards Vegas baby!
I have the domains, now I just need more time. I'll make it...
Yes, according to the math, it is simple. Three hundred days of getting in 10 interested people will only work for you if your "system" attracts traffic on autopilot. Practically speaking 300 days of man-to-(wo)man connection 10 times a day is a hell of a job. Not only in time but also in focus (never miss a day) and persistence. But anyway this is how to plan for Vegas. Thanks
Thanks for your insights. Traffic growth does not occur in a linear fashion. It’s typically exponential.
Traffic is only part of the requirements for getting referrals. Another is the effectiveness of one’s articles.
Most importantly is how badly you want the prize. And how much effort you’re willing and able to apply.
I’ve communicated with several of the Super Affiliates here. They all have one thing in common. For the first year they work their tail off with very little gain. But they have faith in the system and their ability and maintain focus. Eventually their fortitude pays off.
Not everyone wants to do this. Hence it may take longer for others as long as consistent effort is applied and you never give up.
You are right. It’s not easy. But worth it.
Appreciate you crunching the numbers here for us Edwin!
Not promoting WA directly, I doubt I will ever get an invite to Vegas, but if I really wanted to go, I would just hop on a plane!
Great to hear from you again my friend and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Great to hear your insights. In truth, Vegas is not as important as the residual income that comes form signing up 300 or more paying referrals a year. Over time having hundreds of paying referrals is what matters.
In other niches, it’s the same thing. Are we achieving a growing volume of sales over time?
It can be done. And that’s why we are all here and live in hope.
I totally agree with you there Edwin!
The ever recurring income is why we do what we do after all!!
Take care buddy and catch up again soon ok!
Less than one person in the world, that would love to do something they love and build a business doing so. That is basically EVERYONE, and there are 5.25 BILLION people online. So your audience is vast.
I have always said, I could go to my local coffee shop and recruit at least 1 person per day if I really needed to...the math and the path to get to Vegas (and a full time business through the promotion of WA alone) isn't complex, you just have to want it bad enough!
Hi Kyle, thanks for your wisdom. The main takeaway from your response is if you want it bad enough.
Not just here but in life in general, most people do not want outstanding success bad enough to do whatever it takes.
So, what is necessary to build that state of mind? There has to be a compelling reason in our lives to inculcate that condition. If that reason is absent, success will either not happen, or take a very long time as long as one doesn’t give up.
Getting down to the root, it only takes doing one thing exceptionally well and better than most that brings success. Even after all those failed attempts,
It’s very important to keep at it with faith, focus and fortitude.
Thanks for everything Kyle.

You are indeed right Edwin! Sometimes, no matter how hard you work on your business, the end results is not what is expected.
And you persist until the result comes as a torrent! And that would be a really nice thing!
Thanks for the motivation Edwin!
This is what I call delayed gratification! Thanks for commenting.\
