Wealthy Affiliate Education Comes In Handy
Last Update: Jun 27, 2014
As if I wasn't already impressed that I had two websites well on the way to success after a few short months, this week I realized that a wealthy affiliate education comes in handy even when you're really angry. Sure Wealthy Affiliate has taught me everything I need to know to build my websites without any hassles or hype. But this week two companies really ticked me off and my Wealthy Affiliate learning is going to help me help them do what is right.
Around 10:30pm on Saturday night, I took my dog out for a walk in the 100 degree Arizona evening. When we returned, I noticed that I just could not cool off. Just after midnight, I realized the air conditioner had went on the fritz. After trying but failing to see if there was anyway to fix it, I put in an emergency call to my home warranty insurance company. The temperature continued to rise inside the house. Even though this company offers emergency services and the only real reason I pay for the insurance is because of the air conditioner, they were unable to assist. I learned that emergency service meant that someone would be there to answer the phone. After several calls and screaming matches throughout the night, they agreed to put a rush on the service and provided me with the name of the vendor that they would be sending. The vendor had a long "rap" sheet of complaints and an F rating from the Better Business Bureau. The vendor didn't call until Monday morning around 9am (and stated that's when he was told to call)...some rush!
The other battle began on Wednesday, the 25th when my LTD disability company failed to pay me without notifying me first. When I finally got a hold of the examiner, she stated she had told me two and half weeks earlier and sent me letters indicating they need additional information. Of course, neither one of these statements are true. Even if they were true, the June 25th payment would have been for June and the last time we spoke was June 11...don't you think they should have informed me prior to the end of May (the approval period) of anything additional that might be needed?
How my Wealthy Affiliate Education helps...
1) With the same skills I've acquired in relation to best uses of keywords to drive traffic to my site, I was able to find relevant sites that detailed complaints and ratings on both these jokers.
2) While reviews for these guys would not necessarily be appropriate on either one of my sites, I know very well how to write them and use Street Articles as a distribution medium.
3) And how can I use the Social Media Marketing skills I've gained to my advantage? Oh yeah, not only will I likely draw attention to my profiles and website addresses but what a convenient way to share my message with the masses.
Note that I am way too nice to mention these companies by name without giving them a chance to correct their mistakes first but I'm not too stupid to take care of business if needed!
