We are a Community of helpers
Hello to our new and old members. We welcome new members here at Wealthy Affiliate and we wish you much success.
I Know you probably came here because you want to make money and you most certainly will if you are willing to work hard and stay the course.
I'm sure you were told or read somewhere Wealthy Affiliate is not a "get rich quick" scheme. The secret to your success is written in all the training. The training is a guided path to success. You must follow it in the order it is written and complete all the task along the way.
Finally, when you have finished all the lessons and completed all the tasks, you will end up with a website that is set for success.
As you are moving through the training, you ar sure to encounter things that you don't understand. When this happens to you, don't worry, there are multiple ways to get help.
One way to get help is to look right up at the top of the page. See the black bar with the big WA? Right next to the WA it ask "need help, ask a question" If you type in a question, a box with many links will open with answers. You can usually find your answer quickly right there.
Another way to find answers is to simply google it. I find most of my answers in google.
You could also go back and re-read the lesson that covered the subject. BUT, if all that fails to give you an answer, you can go to live chat and ask for help.
When asking others for help, be clear and concise with your questions. Don't make the helper have to go a dozen messages before they find out what it is you REALLY want to know.
All these things will get you help but please try to help yourself first before asking others to help you. It will make you a better, stronger, business person. We learn by doing.
Please keep in mind, the person helping you is taking valuable time away from their own business and daily tasks, to help you. Don't forget to let them know you appreciate the help.
Leaders, there is never a need or excuse for a rant, ever. When you do this you may be driving (scaring) new members out the big ole WA door.
They were told, "come on in", "join us", "we're a community of helpers". That's what brings new members in, the promise of help, and yes, we are a community of helpers.
Lately though, I've been seeing answers to questions with, "I see you didn't read the training", "read the lesson", "it's in the training". When someone is in serious need of help, do you know how frustrating that can be.
You get your referrals on the promise of helping all the way through the learning process.
We are a community of helpers and I, for one, truly enjoy helping others. I'm not very tech saavy but I do know a few things. I welcome questions and it makes me happy when I know I have helped someone else.
Have a good day, everyone
