You Must Follow to Be Followed at Wealthy Affiliate

Last Update: February 18, 2017

Hey there folks, me again.

I've been asked about this followers and following people at Wealthy Affiliate stuff and what the purpose is for it.


Well, Wealthy Affiliate allows you to "build" a network of followers just like social media sites. Twitter would be the best example of this.

On Wealthy Affiliate you have an option to follow people just like you do on Twitter.
Following people on Wealthy Affiliate results in you getting people following you back.

If you want more followers at Wealthy Affiliate, you have to follow people first.

The ratio I have and it might be similar for you, is 3:1

This means if I follow 30 people I end up with about 10 people who follow me back.


There can be a reason for those others that don't follow back. Perhaps they haven't logged in to WA for a while, or they've left.


So, if you want followers start following people on WA and on Social Media such as Twitter.


If you choose to not follow people, you're likely not to get many followers.

How many followers does Jimbo have and how many people is Jimbo following?

Here's a screenshot or 2. You can see the ratio, right?


Jimbo is Following 27,689 Peeps




And Jimbo is Being Followed By 9,088 Peeps


So you see, you gotta follow about 3 people to get 1 follow back. Follow people if you want followers. Don't follow people if you don't want followers.


Live long and prosper!

Jimbo

Yeah my guess is many you've followed are no longer here.

I believe it is true that to become a leader you must first become a good follower.

You must get a thousand emails a day.

no not really...

I've noticed (I think you're referring to PM inside WA) that I do get more PMs than when I wasn't yet an ambassador...

It's all good.

What's your ratio of follows to followers?

Mine is 607:497. So I think that's about 4:5 or 80%. I guess if I followed thousands, the percentage would probably be lower. I need to add more followers.

No, I was actually referring to personal emails. I thought all the people you follow, whenever they write a WA blog post or ask a question, you get an email notification.

ah! Right. Well, I switched off my notifications in WA panel settings so that I am not bombarded with emails...
