Las Vegas 2017!

Last Update: February 01, 2017

The trip out to Las Vegas has been a great experience and even though we say our farewell's tonight, I can tell you this, I am already looking forward to next years Las Vegas Wealthy Affiliate Conference!

One of the goals I set early on for myself as a WA affiliate, was to be able to earn an invitation to Las Vegas for a chance to meet Carson, Kyle and other WA members - all of who I have learned so much from in just the few days we've been here.

There's also been plenty of entertainment, drinks, and appetizing food in a luxurious setting. Here's a few shots of the trip:

Arriving at the room...

MGM Grand...

Group photo...

High-end dining...

Though there was plenty of entertainment and memorable times, the main focus of the Las Vegas Conference is Wealthy Affiliate of course.

Kyle and Carson are clearly focused on developing an overall platform to make Wealthy Affiliate better and more convenient for us - the WA members.

Lots of additions to come, lots to be excited about!

I would also like to point out that it wasn't too long ago that I joined WA myself, it's been around 19 months or so since I first got introduced to online business.

From starting with zero experience, to meeting with the owners and a handful of other wonderful WA members, I am very glad that I decided to become a member here and follow the training.

If it's paid off for me, I am confident that ANYONE can and will experience success here. It all starts with a little action.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful experiences in the Las Vegas 2017 WA conference. I could see myself in there in a couple of years, thanks to your gallery of photos that you've put here.

By the way Jason, how does the 300 referral counter work? I know it goes down as you get people into the program. But does it also go up when someone closes his or her account?

Another question that I have is if you reach the "0" mark, could it still go up until the end of the year? My concern is whether I should maintain 300 people all throughout the year versus, once you reach 300, then it's done.

To my knowledge, it doesn't go back up. A sale is a sale

Whether they leave or not, the counter will still remain the same? That's a relief if that's the case :)

Hi Ray,

If this is something you are interested in doing, check out the Affiliate Bootcamp courses to get started:

Thank you, Jason, since i'm in course 5 towards the certification phase, should i hold off on the bootcamp or would you suggest looking at that too?
Reply
JasonHeard Premium
I would hold off and continue with the certification courses.

Thank you jason, will do.

i just have a quick question, so you literally have 300 people in your affiliate list? Does that mean 23.30 recurring fee for each? just curious.
Reply
JasonHeard Premium
Not everyone who upgrades remains a premium member. Some people leave, some people come back, everyone's situation is different.

I haven't counted how many premium members that I invited, who are currently active.

But yes, I have had over 300 sales in total at this point.

How much would you say you've made from wealthy affiliate program? I'm trying to reach big numbers myself.
Reply
JasonHeard Premium
That's good, keep working!

I don't share how much I've made. That's between me and the tax man.

This is so awesome to hear! Glad you made it in such a short time! What strategy did you use to get you there in such a short time? Just content writing with low hanging fruit, PPC, videos, or something else?

Also, how many members made it there? I had read that the ladies were stepped aside, how many women made it?

Would love to hear your thoughts on your strategy. :) I'm 5 months in and at the start of Phase 5 of Bootcamp so wondering if I can make it to Vegas 2018.
Reply
JasonHeard Premium
I have just been focusing on the SEO side of things, that and the Bootcamp Training.

As far as the members I think there was about a dozen of us. You certainly can make it to Vegas in 2018. Good luck!

I get comments for my posts and use low hanging fruit keywords and my posts don't seem to rank well. Is it because I didn't write enough posts in the first few months? Which was 8 a month.. starting Jan I'm doing 12 posts a month (3/week), what is your schedule like and do you have any tips for ranking my pages?

Jason,

It was great meeting you!
You are certainly a wonderful addition to the Vegas gang and look forward to seeing you next year.

For the folks who are reading this post and find it inspiring, save it and read it over and over again because as Jason said - starting with zero experience, to meeting with the owners within 19 months is possible!
