Greetings, Wealthy Affiliates! I am about to build an Authority site in the computer technical support niche with a focus on small businesses and individuals. I also plan to us

The shorter option flowed to my eye and follows traditional protocol better!

Thanks for the feedback, Michael!

I like the shorter name and it flows well.

Online-Tech-Support

It sounds good when you say it.

What is the .co ? Is it .com without the "m" or is something different?

me too....Onlinetechsupport.com

Thanks for your feedback. .Co is another TLD or top level domain. Most people use it as an alternative to .com.
I do agree that onlinetechsupport does seem to flow better.

Hey Steve,

That's such a great question. I think that there is a bit of a balance that needs to be struck.

For me I tend to pick my 'battles', so to speak, as wisely as I can. If I can help someone out with something then I most definitely will, but if it comes to trying to 'convince' someone to stay, then it's taking away from my valuable time here at WA.

I can see and have experienced the true value of being a member of WA, and I try to point that out quickly to people that are thinking of quitting - and if they can't see it or justify the value that's here for them, then I leave them alone.

Some people unfortunately can't see the value in themselves and don't realise the nature of WA (the REAL WORK involved - and the hand drawn blueprint to business success!!) when they come here because their perspective has been skewed by scam artists, and unfortunately they have it implanted in their heads that it's going to easy and that they don't have to do the work. It's kinda funny, because people want to work from home, but they don't want to work... you know what I mean.

Anyway, there will be those that do see the true value of being a member here at WA and take up Kyle and Carson on their offer of amazing training and absorb everything that is here for them - or they won't. I'm careful about not wasting time on time wasters. Some people just want their butts wiped and one way or another, they're gonna have to learn how to do it themselves. Don't let it distract you too much from your path to success...

Hope you're well man.

Thanks, Peter! I like "I'm careful about not wasting time on time wasters" That would include people who ask vague detail-free questions that you have to drag pertinent info out of. Complete waste of time!
And you make a good point that there is a distinction between someone asking for help or advice, and someone who is complaining and wants WA to be free. It's not my job to try to convince them. Actually, the best thing I can do at this point is to put the training to work on my own sites.

From now on, I'm going to:
1. Focus on my own sites.
2. Help people here who have questions that I have good answers for.
3. Let WA stand for itself as far as convincing people to be here. That's not my job. If it's anyone's job, it's Kyle or the referrer who led them here. (hopefully this will be me someday soon)

Brilliant man! Keep up the good work!

They do need your support and guidance.

point them to and give them the necessary training Steve!

This is a good question. I have seen the same thing. I have helped some and others not and to be honest I don't which is better, lol.
I think that helping them stay helps the WA platform too so I tend to help more than ignore. I think that if u convinced them to stay that the referer would be happy that they stayed, especially if they stay and go premium. Just my thoughts.

Thanks. It seems so far that most people would rather that we helped out. It would be interesting to hear from someone with a horror story of a "helper" that was the exact opposite of helping.

lol, yes that would be interesting to hear.

I haven't had any referrals yet but I have successfully convinced others to stay and helped loads of people with what I could. I would like to think people had my best interests at heart here, I nearly quit when I first joined until I had a long chat with somebody who wasn't my referer and I stayed, I am so grateful that I did now as I have learned so much in such a short time.

Good point. Everyone is helping each other out. Especially once you get to Vegas levels, it would be hard to babysit each and every referral.

I have no referrals but found myself in this situation just the other day. I directed the person to the help he needed and recommended that he get in touch with his referee - who I could see from the bio had reached out to him immediately when he joined.

Hey, that's good advice. I had forgotten you can see a person's referrer from typically the first person commenting on their profile. Aside from Kyle, that is.
In the future, in addition to my advice, I should suggest they contact the person who referred them for additional help.

we are all here to help each other in small ways, just as others help us with training and the like

Other community members are welcome to help out.
That being said I believe every referer should help out
their new referral. Great them and guide them.

Ken, for one I think that every newbie needs ongoing support from whoever referred them. They are apt to stay if you model for them on a regular basis.
Secondly, these are your downliners, and they are the ones who will help build your franchise.
We must guide them So that they can duplicate our steps in reaching their goals.
I truly agree to your comment.

Especially since many referrers talk up the mentoring angle. It’s great if you actually mentor your referees.
