I have WA's training to thank for this: my IG featured in Buzzfeed

Last Update: February 18, 2018

Wealthy Affiliate has opened so many doors for me.

When I started this journey last January, I had no idea how online business worked, much less how to build traffic and an engaged audience. Thanks to the awesome training this platform provides, I've been able to not only build a successful online business here, but also leverage that success to growing my travel blog on Instagram.

This morning I totally got called "famous" by Buzzfeed lol.

How cool is that?I got a big kick out of it, and it's a lot of fun being a "famous" travel blogger let me tell you, lol.

I owe every bit of my success to Kyle, Carson, Jay, and all the leaders and mentors here at Wealthy Affiliate who have created the best training you could possibly find in one platform.

This training community provides us with all the tools necessary to succeed. There's so much on the horizon with WA and I'm so grateful to have found it when I did.

Thank you guys for all the support, and if any of you have instagram, well now you know where to find me!

That's so awesome! Have you seen an influx of referrals after that? (I see you have an affiliate link to WA in your description).
Reply
ericcantu Premium
That's great to notice that. Instagram followers or followers on any of your social media are no different than traffic. And especially with instagram when you only have the one link on your profile, don't be afraid to use it :)
