Hey Friends

I'm on a bit of a rant today, thought I'd share...

As I'm working on my sites to accommodate and promote my book and also other great programs "I trust", I often come across a promotion technique I absolutely abhor, and find it in very poor taste, that is; mudslinging, and negative false site reviews.

It's never been my thing to bring down someone else, so as to promote myself, I'm more into fair play, live and let live. Now that's not to say that scams shouldn't be exposed, however make darn sure you got your facts straight, and have the self respect of writing an honest review.

I've come across a few reviews lately, claiming that WA is great, that is if you're a beginner, and also that you won't get much out of it if you're not a novice. Well it kinda got the fur on my back up so to speak, as I hold WA close to my heart. For those of you that know me, also know that I rarely hesitate to speak out, even if it's to my own detriment.

Is WA for beginners ? Well they got that part right, it sure is!

I was one of the lucky ones, A few years ago now, after my accident I decided to explore the "online marketing world", and unlike many of my friends here, I didn't spend thousands on scams, I hit on WA right away, and haven't looked back since. In other words, I cut my teeth here.

I was green, I'd hardly been on a computer, and surely didn't have any idea about how to create an online business.

If You're not a novice, WA ain't worth your time or money!

Well to speak plainly, they got this part totally wrong, and so allow me to quote Al Pacino, in one of my Fav Flicks :

~ "WhooWhaaa, What a crock of ..." [ "Scent Of A Woman" (1992) ]


I've been here a few years now, and I'm still learning. So either I'm a real slow study, or these "so called review hounds", have never been WA Premium Members . Most of what I've learned, I've learned right here, and I must say, I've learned a hell of a lot, either within the site and posts, or through private conversations with members who lent and still lend me a hand. (ya, I see you smiling, you know who you are, lol)

The sheer Wealth and Magnitude of Knowledge here at WA is mind boggling.

Now I'm no pro yet, though rather far from being a beginner. However if I was to write a blog, naming all the "Pros" along with their areas of expertise, who I turn to when when in need, it would easily be 3 pages long.

You take out, what you put into it

Yes, WA is for beginners, it's also for intermediate learners and Pros. We feed off each other, learn, grow and share, in more ways than one.

WA remains and I believe will continue to be unbeatable, and unstoppable. We Rock...

That's all for now folks

Later Gators

Thank you Jozeph for your willingness to share. You are right, I have always been afraid of computers. Now, my kids that's another story. But with WA I have found more and more of the education I needed to step into the technology world.
Thanks again,

I heartily agree, Jozeph. WA is for beginners, AND intermediates, AND Pros. Unlike you, IDIDN'T hit WA right off the bat, and I've been at this a long time. I've learned a lot, but still feel like a total newbie in many ways. At the same, time, I have learned a lot through my experiences on the internet over the years, so I'm a pro in other ways.

As I told my roommate, who recently signed up for the free account (but I'm betting he's going to join eventually like i did): "All the members are at all different levels of success. Some barely know what a pixel is, others have been online entrepreneurs for years. Everyone helps each other out."

And that's the name o' that tune. BTW, Thank you for the follow. I'm following back.

In response to a comment that somehow disappeared regarding WA;

Ok, but is Bootcamp for beginners?

I Love the Way WA is structured, and how Kyle and Carson have created a strategy as to also give back to their members.
For those who want to make money promoting WA, bootcamp is definitely the way to go.
Ever got a piece of furniture that you had to assemble yourself? Well if you're anything like me, the instruction booklet was always an afterthought.
Bootcamp is just that, the all important instruction manual, should you decide at any stage you're at, to properly promote WA. :)
Thanks Friend, great question :)

I've been dabbling with internet marketing for over 10 years, I've learned a whole bunch since being here and there is plenty more to digest yet.

A lot of people are ego driven and think they already know it all and will write bad reviews built around their own feeling of self importance and not at the actual product on review.

I'd say as a rough estimate, there is a good 5 years worth of knowledge here at least. Plus it is constantly accumulating due to new lessons added by members on a daily basis, plus the seminars by Jay every week.

Whoever said WA is just for beginners is talking bovine excrement and has obviously never looked at exactly what we have here Joseph.
Is there actually anybody who knows everything, no matter how much of a pro they are? I seriously doubt it and in any case, if they were genuine people, wouldn't they want to belong to WA, for the affiliate programme if nothing else......that way they'd be bringing in their own novices into the best learning platform there is on the net and adding another income stream to their tally.

I was scammed quite bad before I finally found WA.
I am about a year with WA now, and gosh, I've learned so much about online and affiliate marketing that I can probably talk about this for hours to those who are uninitiated in this field. However, I am definitely not an advanced marketer, what more a pro. Too far from it lol! I guess after 1 year, I am now in the intermediate level of learning.

Great to hear your input and brutal honest opinion here Joseph. I enjoy reading them if I have the time :-)
Reply
Jozeph Premium
Sad Dominic, and I have friends on here who claimed they've also been through quite a few scams before joining WA. :(

I think the learning here at WA is never ending, so in a way, maybe we'll never feel like we are "Pros", and that's maybe a good thing.
There's always something new around the corner :)

Thanks so much for taking the time my Friend, much appreciated
To Your Success

Hi Joseph.

Yes WA is really only suitable for beginners.

Beginners like me who has been marketing online since 2007!

There are so many advances and changes being made in the internet marketing world, with new methods and ideas to learn about and to adopt, just to stay ahead of our competition.

If we stop learning, and applying what we learn, we will very soon not have a business.

So we are all beginners.

A few years back when Josh started college, he brought it home and said "Dad, you GOTTA watch this movie, everything in it sooo you..!"

After watching it with him, I couldn't help but reflect and wonder, "is this how my Son sees me? ooops...
Anyway, I still watch it now and then, especially when I miss my Son :)

You are so right. For someone new WA is invaluable, for a pro it is even more valuable. The people who write these negative reviews have probably never tried WA so they are missing out on experience the key component of it and that is the community.

There is no other community like it anywhere. As far as I am concerned if I did not need the others for business, it would be the only social media platform I would have anything to do with. An that is because of the content.

Thanks for sharing this with everyone!

Jozeph Premium
Was a pleasure to share Ron. Personally, I believe that a person really starts to learn how to fly, once they get the "get rich quick" scheme out of their mind.
WA is an awesome tool, however a tool is only as good as the user. One of the most important tools here is the actual "networking". The more we get to know each other, the more we learn where to go, when needing info.
Like any good quality tool, one needs to master it, and what greater tool than the Human Element, and honest desire to see each other succeed.
Thanks for your comments, they always make me reflect :)
Have a great one my Friend

I am not a pro. I am totally a newbie in the internet marketing.

As I browse and learn in WA, I really felt they put an effort to make an easy explanation for everything.

But I also found difficult subjects that even though I read and read again, still didn't make sense. I guess it will be later in my "pro" year.

I think the best part of WA for the pros is: we have a huge collection of tools and resources. You can ask anything and it will be here or someone will direct you to right place.

Hey Arief
A great thing about WA, is that as you socialize and get to know people, you know exactly who to go to, when stumped or in doubt.
Never be shy to even PM someone that you're pretty sure will have the answer.
Yes WA is simply put "A Cut Above", great to hear from you my Friend
