We Truly Are a COMMUNITY….

And one that cares about one another. We have always had a "pay it forward" mentality with every update, evolution and improvement here at WA and our focus on the community aspect of WA is going to continue as strong as ever in 2016. It is going to the "year of helping others" at WA and we can't wait!

There has been no greater privilege over the years than to see someone accomplish something they never thought was possible. Build their first website, generate their first online income, quit their job, scale their business, and achieve the 1,000's of other smaller successes that take place each and every day here within WA.

We are truly a "Pay it Forward" community.

We are going to be "upping" the ante in 2016 with many awesome improvements and the first one is investing more time, energy, resources, and money into the Ambassadorship program!

This is a program that everyone here at WA is naturally involved in. Everyone here at Wealthy Affiliate can be an Ambassador of WA and I am hoping that YOU take some time to make an effort to become an Ambassador in 2016!

First off though, What is an Ambassador?

An Ambassador is someone that is an active, helpful participant of the community here at Wealthy Affiliate. They naturally engage with others. They help others. They ask questions when they need help. They are an active entity within the community.

Ambassadors within the community are ranked within the Ambassador page, with the top 12 members being the Ambassadors and the top 100 getting exposure on the rankings page. Anyone and everyone (including yourself) can achieve these rankings).

It is nothing more complex than this. We truly value each and every member here within the community and absolutely anyone “has it in them” to become an ambassador.

Does Rank Play a Roll?

Absolutely. This is based on a complex algorithm that determines not only how much you are contributing within Wealthy Affiliate, but how much you are helping others.

These are the sorts of things that we look for when determining your WA rank:

  1. Helper - How much you help and how timely it is within the community
  2. Creator - Do you blog, do you create discussions, do you create training
  3. Activity - How active are you within the community, do you leave comments, do you interact with new members
  4. Overall Member Rank - Based on a combination of the above
If you go to the Ambassador page, you can see your ranking and see your "points" graphs within those 4 categories.

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/rank

You will notice that the top 12 folks within the community are the highest level of Ambassadors, but this is the current top 12 and by no means there are not several other ambassadors within the system.

You will also notice that your rank will fluctuate quite regularly and the more active you are contributing to WA, the better your ranking will get.

How Can You Contribute?

There are many ways that absolutely anyone can contribute. This does not mean just helping others, you are actually contributing to the greater good of the community when you ask for help and when you engage with others within the 1,000’s of active discussions taking place.

Everything you do within Wealthy Affiliate is going to serve as a contribution to your Ambassador rank and the more often you do it and the more "thoughtful" you are with your interactions, the more you are going to see your rank climb.

  • How often are you the first to respond to a question?
  • How quickly do you get back to others that are asking you question or a PM?
  • Are you asking for help?
  • Are you creating discussions?
  • Are you creating blog posts?
  • Are you posting about success?
  • Are you active in live chat?
  • Do you have any ideas for training that you think can fill a void and help the community out? (Must be a Premium member for 3 months before you can create training)
  • Do you get back to people that connect with you?
  • Are you welcoming new members?
  • Are you activities leading to other people wanting to follow you?
  • Are you actively promoting WA?

All of these contribute to your rank...which plays a role in your overall ranking inside of WA.

Some of the Quickest Ways to Boost Rank

There are some ways you can boost your rank within the system. These include:

(1) Go through unanswered posts and offer a hand
(2) Welcome new folks to the community
(3) Help people with questions in Live Chat
(4) Ask for help when you need it
(5) Be responsive to any "notifications" that you are involved in

Another side effect of rank is promoting WA. We do take affiliate activity into consideration when determining rank, although you do not have to be an affiliate to be in the top 10. What better option than to be an ambassador of WA and earn a full time income promoting WA?

Incentives, Incentives, Incentives...

Your contributions are not going to go unnoticed. Throughout the year we are going to be taking a look at the rankings and those that are contributing at the highest rates to the community.

If you are truly a helper and you care about others...and care about the community here at WA, we are going to notice you and we are going to show our appreciation.

We have set aside a BUDGET for the Ambassador program and throughout the year will be contacting those that we feel have Ambassador qualities and those that “retain” high rankings within the community.

So this leaves one final question. Are YOU going to become an Ambassador within WA in 2016? Interact, engage, network, help, ask for help, and be active within the community and you will be well on your way.

If you have any comments or questions about the ambassadorship program, please leave your comments below and I will be happy to get back to you!

Yes, I really would love to help and encourage others but at the moment I am learning ... I am gradually getting through boot camp & like seeing the new content I have written ... I tried on Google to search my website but it's not there, is there a way we can see/keep track of it? I've a long way to go yet so I'm probably jumping the gun ... anyway, really loving this learning but essentially at the moment I'm to much of a newbie to help others but I definitely will try .... I would value comment on my website and what others within the community think of it ... it's :

THIS AMBASSADORSHIP ROGRAM IS SUCH A GREAT ADDED BENEFIT HERE AT WA. When starting month ago I really ddn't know what to expect, but the community of our members gives a newbie a wonderfully welcoming feeling. So far, none of my questions have gone unanswered, extra help from so many members was greatly appreciated , and th live presentations have helped me greatly. I knew absolutely nothing about website building just 4 weeks ago and am beginning to feel " in the loop" again at 69 yrs old. Enjoying this journey immensely!

I think that all of the members that I have encountered in the WA community are great people, and I enjoy corresponding with them. I keep trying to join the ambassador program, and have even left very positive reviews and maybe a little critique here and there, of others websites. But, it says later, that I cannot join until I have done just that. Just another glitch. I am positive it will be worked out. Oh, I am going by a new name now. Hoping to be able to do what I joined for. Thanks all.

Well, this is a great incentive. One of the main reasons for me signing up to WA was the idea of the community and they ways you could interact. Four months on, I am still blown away with not just the community but with everything about WA. The way the lessons have been planned is just mind blowing in the sense that it takes great creativity, planning, resources and technical skill to pull it all off - I am so impressed with this.

But getting back to the community, I mean, where would I be without the community who are so responsive and helpful...amazing...so yes, I want to be just the same as them. I've held back because I had so much to learn and have learnt more than I ever expected in the 4 months since being here, and more amazing things to come.

So, I feel it my duty to help in a way that I have recieved it in the last 4 months.

I'm a WA lifer :)

I must say last year I spent a lot of time responding writing blogs, connecting and doing many things, the only thing I was short on is creating lessons, as I felt I still had so much to learn. I noticed all this time spent on WA was taking from my lessons and site building and yet I seem to fall very quickly in the ranks and I lost interest. I unfortunately lost momentum, which I will encourage anyone never to do, is its a challenge getting it back. I still think this is a beautiful place and am very happy I came across it. I'll do great this year. Surely!

Yes, at times it does become time consuming, but creating lessons isn't the magic pill alone, as you alluded to above, as you can look at the ranking and see that many of the top ranking folks have a high creator rank, but the combination of the other two components shown pushed them up the ranks.

Lets face it, teaching and creating lessons isn't for everyone. Stick with what you enjoy doing within the community. The main point is remain engaged, as this lesson will become paramount in your business as it grows. Social media is only getting more important and you become acclimated to responding and remaining engaged here at WA and this translates well to social media and your business.

Thanks for your post! I started to follow you.

Sherefashion,

You are so painfully honest.

We are our own best critics - but if we judge ourselves we don't have to be judged - right? Just be careful not to be too hard on yourself to the point of becoming unable to perform.

I have seen in my lifetime many perfectionist who never produced anything if it wasn't (in their own eyes) perfect. I, knowing what they were capable to produce if they just would, watched how miserable it left them.

Be kind to yourself and just keep producing. Let others decide what area in their lives they will apply your product.

Thank you for that thought provoking and self examining comment. This is especially useful for beginners, as it is at that stage of the learning curve where one often becomes disenchanted and gives up!

I'm not clear on how to become an Ambassador in WA. I love the helping each other concept. There is so much to learn from so many different directions. I'm not sure I am picking up the next lesson in the Affiliate Bootcamp. No matter how many pages I read or do action, the sidebar still shows the same course 1, lesson 2. Any help?

Click on the Ambassador button in the left side bar on the main WA page right below the Jaaxy red logo. There you should find the pathway and answers you are looking for.

I am beginning to see how great a program this is. Too many times I have been involved in programs that seemed to be great in the beginning, but it soon became obvious that the strategy of the program owners was to "get you in" and then start "drip marketing" add-ons for additional money (to them).

I love the community approach of WA, because isn't that what life is all about? Usually, you can accomplish far more by working with and helping others along the way than by trying to do it all on your own.

Love it!

A few days back, one thing that I never ever imagine or set about to target and achieve when 1st I joined WA last July 2016, materialized astonishingly!

And it is top 200 ranking at WA! Honestly, at times I could be more than satisfied to be placed anywhere within the ranking, nevermind the top 200! My first and foremost objective is to learn the right way and method in Affiliate Marketing to beyond.

Blogging and other things? I'm so naive and a bit doubtful at FIRST!

What a great WA and the community, special mention to Kyle & Carson.

Kyle deserve my highest appreciation! He is too good to be true involving in the daily affair at WA. Without his tutorials and courses with a great first-hand approach, it is still an OLD me!

WA truly a NEVERLAND that helps you keep improving and believed that impossible is nothing!

This Ambassadorship ROCKS!

It's very cool that you have used the concept of Gamification in the community. Like in a video game one can level up by doing certain tasks. This is rewarding. Very cool.

I started on Dec 16th at 125,000. Since that time I have dropped to 472. If I can do this at your age you'll be in the top 200 in less than a month. Remember that you made money goals. I you have none there is no destination. Make your Ranking goal for 200 in one month. This was mine. I will be cheering for you. As far as a niche. If you never had to work again what would you do to occupy your time.

I get 5 k a month! Super awesome right! But it's not a guarantee! And it's re-invested! Accessible Cash wise! I'm poor as a church mouse?.lol..as it's binary and forex and it's totally passive and could crash! Luckily for now am making! It's a game of chance though so although I don't need to work to study to build a business I do! For my own sanity and life challenges.
I did a degree on a subject I didn't even like that much! I love animals and I care for my Son! You know though in life there's more! Am hoping to find that with WA! I am not a social whizz or even got many friends on FB but I do want to prove to myself I can make a business and make it work and be a future for my family that's a reliable and consistent income!

I believe there about 250,000 active members. My number was 125,000 when I started. I don't know why. I have the impression there are about 700,000 members. But I'm not sure. Another think might help look your son square in the eye and tell him, this is what I want to do and we're going to make it happen.

I think Steve has worked out the secret of success: helping others

I'm still new here and am so eager to absorb more, in turn, offering more back.

So many grabbing hands out there when really, open arms is the only way forward.

Thanks for the inspiration Steve.

Just curious what does an ambassador get you? Does WA pay actual money incentives for higher rank in WA. Not to sound smarty, but shouldnt we all be helping our own wallets here and working on our own websites that we creates using WA training?

Isnt earning revenue on my personal website via affiliate marketing the main goal if it pays my own bills?

Correct me if wrong, but getting ranked on WA and becoming an Ambassador isnt really helping my final pocket book and money personal income is it?

Its great to get ranked and be involved which I am...ranked 1900 our of what...a million WA members....I get help and try to receive it here at WA...but ultimately this program is for Kyle and WA so they get more premium members paying their annual fee, right?

I paid my fee to get the training and help which I learned and now operate my own sites through this WA platform. But, I am earning every dollar that I make and I must spend my time doing that or else I have to quite and get a job. If I spend too much time on WA writing blogs posts and commenting then I am not writing real content on my own sites and therefore earning money.

That is unless of course WA will pay me rewards for ranking higher or becoming ambassador. Other than the referral money for WA of course. That program is legit although I do not have a make money from home online website niche like everyone else does. Let me know

The WA community is very cohesive because of its ideals and
norms. As expected, members strive to add value to the quality of people's lives within and outside the community. I hope to do my best to be worthy of this community once I pick my bearing. I am very green in everything Internet and I need help. How do I set up my picture beside my comment? How do I build my website? How do I apply the necessary tools for effective net- working? These are my immediate needs and I require real help.
Want to extend warm greetings to all members(old/new), especially the founders. Thank you and God bless you all.

I have only been a member for two days, and I have seen my rank change. I couldn't figure out why--now I know. :) I am still learning myself, but I love to help people. As I learn, I will be more than happy to lending a helping hand. I am a firm believer in treating others the way I want to be treated; therefore, the whole concept of paying it forward is an idea a can easily buy into. oh, and I am definitely not afraid to ask for help!

It makes me look ahead within the parameters of what I am doing right here, right now within WA. It gives me hope and faith of something bigger ahead, as you're offering what I have always enjoyed and dreamt of doing: The fun of helping and communicating with others. The admiration towards those more experienced and knowledgeable than myself and the satisfaction of witnessing new comers, with very little experience or none whatsoever, seeing them work hard and attaining their little successes. I am just loving it here!!! Thank you

Having been #13 at one time in the past I can offer you many suggestions on how to ramp your rank

Like several past Ambassadors, I dropped out 'cos it was burning too much of my time and I wasn't developing my own sites.

i would compare the wealthy affiliate program to this old proverb that says" if you give a man a fish he would eat for a day, but if you teach him how to fish, then he would be able to fish for his entire life." in other words he would have earned the ability to make a livelihood.He's now in a position to provide for his family and to help others, and wealthy affiliate Ambassadorship are helping us not just for a short time but for all our time on the earth not just to make money but to be a better person.

My new Entrepreneurial Mantra is this:

"Plant a thought and reap a word;
plant a word and reap an action;
plant an action and reap a habit;
plant a habit and reap a character;
plant a character and reap a destiny"

I believe this relates to your blog post ;)
Thanks for sharing.

martycanaday Premium
Yes, very similar!

Educators teach that it takes at least 21 days to form a habit. That's why I emphasized the importance of repeating our actions every day (our faithfulness). And our mindset determines if we will do that or not (our will).

Here's what your mantra would look like in a plural form:

Plant thoughts and reap words;
plant words and reap actions;
plant actions and reap habits,
plant habits and reap your character;
plant your character and reap your destiny!
Reply
martycanaday Premium
Confidence is important for sure. But, my experience is that confidence comes as one gains competency. And competency comes through faithfulness! The kind of faithfulness I'm speaking of begins with self-discipline. Call it hard work, staying at the task, doing the right things every day . . . self-discipline is a daily habit that is determined by one's mindset!

Choices determine habits. Habits determine character. And character determines destiny!

What I like about WA is the structure and tools that have been provided. All we need to do is trust the program and follow it faithfully every day. I have a tendency to want to jump ahead or do things my own way. But I've learned that sticking with the plans that have worked for others time after time is best. One's mindset will determine one's success. And so our mindset is what will determine how competent and confident we will be.

Do you have a mindset to trust the WA training process and to faithfully execute all of the training steps that are provided? Your answer to this question will determine whether you will become an Ambassador and be successful as a self-employed, business entrepreneur.

Hi - Ok, here's my "shot." :)

WA is an educational forum where you make a commitment to yourself, learn how to build a website, and begin an online business. This can be related to something you already do, as in a small business owner who wants to build his/her own site, or it can be something totally new to you because you're either: bored; hate your "J.O.B.;" want to supplement income; or, heck no - want to make gobs of money working from home, on the beach, in Las Vegas, in Bermuda, or wherever you'd like to go - all while earning money over and over again from your one time cumulative effort as opposed to earning a paycheck from your "work once, get paid once" j-o-b.

It's about "FREEDOM."

TaDaa! ...How'd I do?

I would like to become an ambassador and believe that I have more than completed all required steps. Is there a form or something that needs to be completed or does the system automatically see that all steps are completed and make me an ambassador.

NOTE: WA reminds me of the addiction I used to have for Empire Avenue but with a purpose here. It keeps me focused and on the right track for generating the affiliate marketing success that I am seeking.

At 18 years old, I started my first business in the structural steel business for making large factories and warehouses.
Self Employment is the way i chose to start my business off line. Its the best way to improve your life and also to solve your customers needs and wants.

I found that there are a few things Self Employed businesses need to do and i found out the hard way.

1- You have to be different from your competition, otherwise you will never be recognized. What makes you Unique in the eyes of your potential customers?

2- You must make sure your Risk Reversal is always directed at the customer, and by this i mean that any customer that chooses to do business with you does must not carry any Risk at all. If you don't use 100% Risk Reversal you will find it hard to convince customers to do business with you.

2- Guarantees? Do you really need them? Well i can tell you that if you don't it will be dry pickings. The Guarantees you advertise must be so over the top and almost unbelievable that the customers just can not, not do business with you, because there are 2 things customers think when they see your guarantees, This is the actual feedback from our hundreds of customers;
A] Customers think you must be mad to have such an awesome guarantee.
B] And If the Guarantees assume all the risk, then your customer realizes that either you must do amazing work or otherwise you are stark raving mad and you would be broke.
Example: I had a Pest Control company in Brisbane Australia, and its hot and it has millions of cockroaches because of that heat.

When i started out i looked at my competition and noticed i glaring omission, none of them had no guarantees, so that year i took out a yellow page ad in the phone book and advertised our business and put a big splash saying 100% Money Back Guarantee.

Just that Guarantee brought in a lot of business, but by the 2nd year my competitors started advertising their own 100% MBG. So there was only 1 way to combat that, because now i was like them and that's not what i like.

So you guessed it, i went to the very first 200% Money Back Guarantee in Australia at that time.

The funny thing was that my first 2 calls were not from customers but from 2 of the biggest pest control companies in all of Australia.

Call #1 When my office lady put the call thru to me, i knew it was not going to be a social call, and that is exactly what happened. This manager from my competition started swearing at me, and saying things like, "are you f******* crazy, you are going to destroy the industry, and i said i think that's a bit of an exaggeration.
He then said, "if you knew what you were doing, you would know that you can't keep cockroaches out of peoples houses for a whole year", to which I said, I totally agree with you and i wished him a good day.

Call #2 The next call my office put through to me, was the Manager of the next biggest pest control company except this time i didn't get a chance to even talk to him. I can't repeat here what he said to me, but lets say it was ten time worse than the first call, with threats, name calling and I should go bury myself under a concrete slab before the pour the concrete.

To you who are reading this, i would love to know your opinions.
I kept my 200% guarantees and when the yellow pages came out, i was the only one with a 200% guarantee.
Yes i knew we couldn't keep the cockroaches away for 1 year, but that was not the point of the guarantee, and in fact they had completely missed the point of why i was doing it, which i was glad.

Also as part of our guarantee, we also had a Quality Control program, where we would call each customer 7 days after the treatment, and then every 3 months right up to when they were due again.

The Guarantee put our customers at rest and they knew they were not on their own anymore. Because they knew we were calling every 3 months to check their situation, and the most common comments, we were the first company who had the guts to call every 3 months and check out the work.
They would say things like, they have been good, or i saw one but i used my shoe and it was gone.
And other would say its the best treatment we had and we didn't even have to empty our cupboards, which ladies loved saving all that work.
And Yes we did have to give 3 customers back their money because we couldn't help them, so 3 refunds out of 15,000 customer was a pretty awesome record.

So always make your guarantees as awesome as you can because when you couple that we a great Quality Control System you will reap the benefits.
And these guarantees need to be amazing to the point that when a customer reads your guarantee, they can not possibly believe it. They then think well i have not got anything to lose.

The last system we used was our Referral System, and it worked so well we had to stop it at times because we couldn't handle the work;
In summary - Be Different - Be the Best You Can - Assume the Risk - Have Awesome Guarantees - Awesome Quality Control Systems and go for it.

Thanks, sorry it was so long.

80% of success is mental and only 20% of success is mechanics. I think the key to any success in life is to work smart and not hard. That's why we invest in ourselves and only follow the people who have already done what we want in our future. Remember, the late Jim Rohn always said, "Formal education will make you a living but self education will make you a fortune."

This is actually my niche, my dream. Like anyone else I do wish to be able to make the money to live a decent stable financial life, of course, who doesn't!! One where with my loved ones can do things and go to places without having to look at how much will be left at the end of it. I wish to have a rested mind and an assurance that none of the people I love will ever suffer again from not having had enough to live decently.
Then, would be the dream of being able to help others get there too. Feeling the satisfaction of having helped others succeed and build their own little empires too. An ambassador I'll be and that's a promise.

I thought when I first started out that I had nothing that I could share or help others with because I was too new myself but, I found out that this wasn't the case. Because I'm new I have a lot to share with those that are as new as myself just learning so every time I came across something I had some difficult with I either blogged it or shared it with another who was needed the same kind of help.

I am starting to feel more comfortable jumping in and offering advice in Live Chat as well.

I would love to be Ambassador status some day this would mean to me that I helped others along their journey to success.

I will continue to help where ever or when ever I can.

Greeting to My Wealthy Affiliate Family;
I William L.Gordon would @ this time like to share this if I may with you. I don't know if this is appropriate for me to do this here or not but but here I go.I am a born again Christian who love the LORD and I am Plumb,Pleased and Proud to tell the world. I like most of us was as a child in church every Sunday.We started the day in Sunday School, 11.00 Service, went home then came back @ 6.00 P.M for Baptist BTU Classes.

When I became a young man I started smoking weed, and chasing women I also sold drugs.I also sold drugs and I went to jail 3 times before turning my life around I did not get a job until I was 27 years old. I got married @ 20 because I got my girlfriend pregnant and I married here because I did not want my son growing up without his father the way I did.

I have been BLESSED to have 2 Great Sons and a Beautiful Daughter who I love very, very much. Well the marriage did not work out because I was not a good husband, a good father but a lousy husband. I left my family but I still paid the house note and I Always took excellent care of my kids(good dad lousy husband remember)

Well upon being released from jail in June of 1973 I was hired by Continental Bakeries(Wonder Bread Bakery) I was BLESSED to work there 28 years and I retired i 1999.

I have been involved with MLM and Mail Order the past 30 years. I have been involved in just about everything legal from AMWAY to EXCEL TELECOMMUNICATIONS. I have quite an extensive portfolio of various products and offers.

I stopped smoking weed, returned to Church and asked the LORD to forgive me for ALL of my sins. I am so glad that he did not treat me the way I treated him If my testifying has offended AnyOne I truly apologize.

May Our LORD and SAVIOUR Shower His Grace and Mercy UpOn Each and EVERYONE OF YOU!

GOD BLESS;

You either live in fear of receiving what you don't want or you live having faith in receiving what YOU want.

I prefer having faith in receiving what I want.

Hence why I support the idea of helping the community as I have faith that I will be receiving the same type of treatment.
