Be an Ambassador at WA in 2021!

Last Update: January 26, 2021

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 2021. It is going to be 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 2021 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 2021!

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 your 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 2021? Interact, engage, network, help, ask for help, and be active within the community and you will be well on your way.

Welcome Sherabella! I'm quite new too. Joined couple days ago and just created one of my websites. I can see many enthusiastic souls around here which is always a good feeling for a starter like me. Still quite confusing at times not knowing where i've started and where i've ended but believing in patience to lead me to the right direction soon :)

Just had my first ranking 2322 after 1 week, amazingly similar to my outreach to my local community in Australia!

If you want to be happy, help somebody with a need and help them find the solution to their problem.(:

That why I'm a family therapy counselor!

Thank you all for helping me here at WA, much appreciate you all, and looking forward to becoming an Ambassador in 2017.

Cheers & blessings,

Time for me to get started. I am as new as the morning dew, so I don't know much about the mechanical business here as of yet, but if you could just use a bit of encouragement or a way to get a mental jump on things . . . I'm pretty good at that! Thanks for welcoming me to the community. It is an honor to be here! Peace - William

Hi William,

Welcome to WA, where like in life, "All new things look difficult until you know how to do it"... If you ever need encouragement send me a PM (private message), that what I do best in life, apart from loving people, especially those who stick their hand up and ask for help(:

See you mate(:

Cheers & blessings,

I am thoroughly confused about rankings..What does it mean to be # 66 and a Top Helper? I am assuming that it a good thing. Does it also mean that I am in the top 200, or does your rank have to be above 200 to be in the top 200? This is so confusing....

Thanks

Well, I don't know about all that but thank you and to finally answer your question: you are ranked at 248!! And this is great, it's probably attributable to the fact that you are involved and engaged. That's what it takes.

I have got to get more focused on adding more content to my site. I need to stay dedicated and DO IT!!

Dedicated and Focused 2017!!

Thanks!!

It may but you now know how to build it back up.

Are you going to work the flood in Texas?

Yes. I am waiting for deployment instructions now. I was called to go to La., but I had already made this commitment to Samaritan's Purse and Texas, so I should be leaving in about 1-2 weeks. I'm a little anxious, but I know it is the right thing to do!!

Yes the rank #66 represents good merit. Lesser the number indicates higher the merit. I believe rankings are based on a complex algorithm taking into account the member's level of activity in the community, helping by answering the questions raised by fellow members, creating useful blog content within WA network and creating useful training materials.

Top 200 means the rank is between 1 - 200.

Hope this helps.

Good Morning Tammy,

Yes, with 66 you are in the group of the first 200 people.
There are various things that are taken into consideration to then calculate where you are. I had a look at your rank, the blue icon next to that little profile photo top right.

Helper-51 = you have been active helping people
Creator-334 = you have not been very active writing WA posts or training.
Activity-57 = you have been active socializing like reading and liking posts also answering questions if one knows the answer etc

You have made a big jump forward with 182 points meaning your rank is now lower=66=better.

Taken all this into consideration you have been a Top Helper.
Well done! Hope this clarifies.

Greetings from the south of Spain, Taetske

This community is so fab - its not just building a website and making an income (which would be amazing on its own anyway), its making great friends, being offered all of these incentives to succeed and being given so many opportunities as well! Thank you for the great training as always, I'll make more of a conscious effort to help others, even though its usually me that needs the help at the moment!
