Help Please - Short Question

Last Update: December 08, 2015

Question: What convinced you to sign up for WA?

I came to WA through an affiliate link on Nathaniell's website. He wrote a well written article on Internet scams. There was a short note at the end of his article mentioning WA and I was intrigued. The rest is history.

So what's your story? If you could give me a short summary about what convinced you to sign up for WA then I would be deeply grateful.

Thanx a million.

I was searching for an education and the fact it was free to explore for a week pulled me in, I clearly remember me thinking, you don't get one penny from me!! before you have convinced me this lessons are worth something.

Perfect. That was another trend I'm seeing in the comments. "Try before you buy," and not "money back guarantee."

I'm doing market research and all this is helping me define my target audience.

Your story is extremely helpful. Muchos gracias amiga.

[I spent way too much time trying to figure out what species of baboon that is, and I am as confused as the baboon!] As for finding WA, I also was searching for whether or not something was a scam! In my case, it was Got Backup, and Bnakedscam included a review on his website http://barenakedscam.com/. Jack has an EXTENSIVE library of companies/scams he has reviewed. He did not have much to say about Got Backup, but of all his reviews of online opportunities he said one stood out as better than all the rest--Wealthy Affiliate! The rest, as they say, is history!

Ahhh, there we go. I'm trying to spot a trend.

"Scam" is the keyword which keeps popping up.

I'm doing market research. I needed to pose this question to get the sign up story straight from the horse's mouth. Strike that. Straight from the baboon's mouth.

Geez, that doesn't sound good. I hope no one at WA thinks I'm calling them a baboon.

Hey folks, it's a figure of speech. No offense intended. This is all Kevin's fault for talking about baboons. I couldn't help myself. You all know my sense of humor by now, don't ya?

Oops, I'm supposed to be replying to you Kevin. I digress.

I have no clue about the species. All I know is that it looks a heck of a lot like me when I'm puzzled, lol.

Your help and link was extremely important. I needed that information to complete what I'm researching.

Thanx a bunch.

Hey Grampa Mike, I had just realised that binary trading wasn't for me.
Though a conservative news source, I responded to an ad by Kevin Thompson about building websites. I signed up for $100/mo till
several $1000 was paid.
We went to Texas and my son-in-law who is a computer geek for an oil co. found out about WA from one of his geek friends.
He did a scam check and found a comparison chart and I was convinced.
I was able to get a full refund from Kevin Thompson and here we are.
No one gets a kick back from me because his geek friend was not in WA.
LOL I should try to sign both of them up.

Marty:-)

I can't actually remember who I found WA through but none the less it was the fact I could join at no cost that got me started.
Had it actually been a pay up front with a 100% money back guarantee type situation then I dare say I wouldn't be writing this now.
The other main attraction was the lack of hype. I can't stand hype! If I see it I just turn off.
Obviously The information provided at the initial discovery of WA was thorough...to the point that the premium membership investment of $47 per month appeared to be to little.
So 1. Free to have a look
2. No hype
3. Up front information as to what you can gain/learn
Hope that's what you're looking for.
Have a good one. Steve.

Perfect. Thanx Steve. That is exactly what I'm looking for. I'm trying to define what motivates people to join. Thank you for your contribution.

No prob Mike.
Human nature makes us all do one of two things...
1. Avoid pain. Be it physical, financial, emotional, spiritual and so on. Or
2. Gain pleasure. Love, connection, financial freedom, acceptance, you get my drift.
Oddly enough we will be more motivated to avoid pain than to gain pleasure.
An example of this would be the guy who sees the woman of his dreams but wont approach her. Why? Because the fear of rejection (pain) is greater than the possibility of a life of happiness (pleasure). The pain is stronger than the pleasure.
This is more often a subconscious decision. It's nuts but true.
Marketers know this which is why you will often see solutions to what is deemed to be a "pain" in someones life. Show them the pain without it, then shazam, the solution!
Happy marketing. Steve.

That concept comes out of Psychology 101 text books. Pain is an extremely powerful motivator.

Being broke is an awfully painful state and a great reason to join WA.

You're spot on there. You only have to tap in "make money" in any search tool and see just how many people are searching for an answer to their pain.
Another angle would be those that want to be in control of their lives and make their own choices. Not as powerful as the broke one but another avenue also.

Ah, that's a good one. Gaining power over one's life. Who wouldn't want that.

More food for thought, thanx.

By the way, after all these years I finally have my PhD. Yoo hoo. One more thing off my bucket list.

A PhD...nice one! Good to have a bucket list to work through.
Not much has moved out of my bucket lately. Plenty gone in though.
Great stuff on the PhD.

Hi Grampamike! :) Have been looking for ways to earn even if I am a stay at home mom. Couldn't really find the right opportunity. Even dabbled into network marketing, but its not my cup of tea. Saw an article on how to make money online and eventually came across WA. Now I'm happily learning from the training/ WA community and building my site. :)

Excellent. Your motivation was "how to make money online."

That is what I was looking for. Thank you.
