Kyle & Carson, Now On Instagram.

Last Update: February 11, 2019

Conventionally, we are not BIG into the social world with our personal lives. But we feel that it is time to really "humanize" us. We get the question far too often, "are you guys really real" and I think to a certain degree we have become so used to being able to follow people and their lives through mediums like Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook and Twitter that we have become desensitized to the fact that these were conventionally private things.

We have just recently set-up our Instagram profiles and this is going to be a focus of our day to day moving forward. You can follow us at the following profiles.

@wealthyaffiliatecarson (Carson)

But we get it. We also are not living in the dark ages, we are a progressive company and we are also progress in our day to day lives in terms of technology and keeping ahead of the curve. So it was due time.
We feel that this is going to play out in several positive ways.

  • Keeping up with the Millenials (and Kardashians). We are not getting any younger, but the demographics evolve. We have to keep up with the next generation in terms of their habits, this is important in every business. If you want to remain an "old school" business, the best way is to behave "old school" in terms of your habits and technology that you adopt. We have always been "ahead" of the industry, and we feel it is important to have a presence on social.
  • Trust. When people realize that we are REAL people, living real lives, it creates a certain level of trust that couldn't be achieved otherwise. This was a big reason we wanted to move into Instagram, to prove that we are very much normal at heart, we are caring, and we have families and people around us that we care about and spend a lot of time with.
  • Highly Engaged Audience. Instagram has a very engaged audience, much more so than any other social network. You post something, people see it within their feed, and because people don't post new images every day or share the sort of influx of spam and news articles you see on Facebook or Twitter, there is much greater focus on your actual posts and what you have to share.
  • Instant Reach/Voice. You want to get a message out, you can. The greater the following, the wider your voice will spread. People see, like, and engage in your content within seconds of you posting it on Instagram. This is very powerful to your business, your brand, and your authority within any niche.

So take a second and follow us on Instagram, we would love to connect on there as well.

@wealthyaffiliatekyle (Kyle)

@wealthyaffiliatecarson (Carson)

You can step inside of our lives and realize that we are normal people, with families, and we like to do normal things just as you do...well not always completely normal, but you will have to follow us to find out. LOL

One thing that we have decided we are not going to do is make this a promotional fest, we want to use the Instagram medium to build trust with people to show that we are authentic and real. There is nothing wrong with using Instagram as a promotional medium, but it is going to be done very tastefully and naturally (versus the spam fest I see out there these days).

See ya on Instagram!

Cheers,

Kyle & Carson

Hi Kyle and Carson

Hi Kyle & Carson!

Thanks for the notification. I need to consider start using Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, and FB for my engagement as well. The only problem I see by using so many social media sites is the management of them, and the time involved in the postings because to be successful on it, honestly, I think a lot of time and regularly postings (on an almost daily basis) are needed to achieve substantial view results.

Maybe focusing on one or mostly two of them should be the better way to go ...

Anyway, it is great to see you on Instagram! Great postings!

Best regards,
Igor

You just don't need to overdo it or invest too much time. I found myself spending time there and on FB every day, so might as well put some practical "purpose" into using these social networks...which will eliminate some the waste in my day as well.

Yeyy, I found you both.

Some beautiful Pics there. Family time and wow that Snow is so pretty.

That's awesome and I gave you a follow to both of you too.

Lolz and you say your not getting any younger. Well I definitely aren't lol.

Debs AKA (Frankie_Thake) My middle name.

Most people I know who are old School normally call me Frankie rather than Deborah lol don't know why but it stuck from being a kid .

My daughter who is 17 guided me in the Instagram thing. Now I just need her 20K followers.

She aint sharing lol. It's like their social feed is like their mobiles/cells they aint sharing.

Debs/Frankie. :)

LOL, it is amazing what the younger generation is doing with Instagram these days. Sounds like you daughter has some good influence on there Debs/Frankie! :)

Nice to connect over there and we definitely enjoy sharing pics and it will be fun sharing our stories in a more "minute by minute" manner.

Sometimes people don't realize how real, authentic and normal we really are because we don't have a medium outside of WA to really show that. Now we will with our IG accounts.

I know the kids of today boom well ahead of us Kyle.

I have to admit though is the one thing I love about you guys your not like the rest and you don't do the big shot guru thing.

However I think its awesome to see you guys also on Instagram doing the family thing.

I think it's what makes you two super special is that you don't go around promoting your wealth. I love that about you's two.

(Sorry it's my Northern twang that comes across in my post. North Yorkshire. Some how we have a dialect thats hard to understand lol .)

Anyway's I think your both absolutely brilliant. I am looking forward to catching up with some more of your Instagram posts.


Well you both changed my life for the better that's for sure.

Debs/Frankie :))

Awesome Chris and we will definitely be offering a lot of insights into our own social ventures. When we take something on, we fully commit and we are quickly going to reveal interesting "takes" on what we do, how we grow, and the more subtle business applications that we discover.

I have trouble with social media. I setup an account with Facebook but I've never used it. Can't quite figure out how.
I know I need to if I'm going to get enough traffic. Right now I'm wading through Affiliate networks and Affiliate Programs. I'll soon be at the Social Media lesson. I'm looking forward to that. Every step is a huge learning hurdle.

But thanks to you, Kyle and Carson, I'm getting there.

I never doubted you and Carson are real. Actually, you are both super real, rock stars!! 🎸🎤🏆I am back in the training phase after 6 months, I have nothing to show for my efforts. The training is so easy to adapt to, but I still get zero response. I fear I may have chosen the wrong niche, but I was so excited when I joined I jumped in with both feet and a blindfold. I just didn't hit the mark and that is why I'm starting over. I am so excited to meet you, Carson, and all the super affiliates, it's become my mantra. Thank you for this opportunity. After 40+ years in the work force, I never dreamt there was so much to offer this old woman, but there it is...WA!! I'm going slow this time with intelligence and determination. I hope to meet you in 2020...I need a WA coffee mug!! 😋💕❣💕

Hi Kyle!
I will follow you guys on Instagram, thanks. I’m going to walk myself around the platform and familiarize myself with it. You’re right, seeing you guys on Instagram does give a sort of ‘real welcoming’ feeling that seems to say, “I’ve known these guys all my life.”
Thanks for the invite,
David.

Sounds great David - and thanks for the feedback about us going on IG. To this point we've stayed off social media but we do love the fact that we can give folks a look at what we do on a day in and day out basis in our personal lives. I look forward to sharing my story with you :)

Thanks Carson, I believe everyone has a unique story of their hometown with friends and family, who were their favorite instructors and favorite hobbies. I look forward to getting to know you and if you have a favorite sports team :).
Cheers,

I just signed up, as you said I am very-very old school, as I graduated High school 50 years ago in June.
I don't know the first thing about these social media so I have to add that to my list of things to do.
I added follow to both of you hope to learn and grow from all this here at WA as well as social media.

Thanks so much for this opportunity Wayne Miller

Just create an instagram account, jump in feet first. That is how I tackle NEW things, I always find it the best way to learn. Sure there will be a few bumps, but those are learning experiences. ;)

Thanks a lot, Kyle & Carson. I have started following both of you.

It's a pleasure to have the opportunity to get to know both of you closer in the WA family and I trust that this opportunity will motivate each and everyone of us here to follow your footsteps in achieving our goals in this online world.

Both of you are 'Leadership By Example'. Definitely it will be a booster to our daily life.

With appreciation,

Most definitely, I think what you are going to find that we live very normal lives, and we do normal stuff. That is the case I have found with a lot of people on IG.

We are going to be authentic and real with folks, and avoid the constant and annoying "pitches". Our focus is brand and trust, and just generally letting people have a peak inside the lives of a new age "internet entrepreneur".

We have been online full time for the last 17 years, hard to believe, but our lifestyle has been very flexible during this period as we have gotten to work the laptop lifestyle and we still do.

You got me hooked, followed back, that are some great photos, thanks for sharing. Now I got a better idea of what to post there and will make a start as well.

And yes it is true, click like and reply, simple and powerful, I am happy not to see aggressive advertisement.

Thanks Kyle & Carson!

Yeah, the simplicity of it at first was what I found to be unusual. Are we dumbing our own communication abilities down, but what is happening with social media is it is become an instant communication tool, and a time filler.

We tend to "educate" ourselves through searches in search engines, we tend to watch and follow people and their lives through more instant engagement and communication models.

How did you create the #wealthyaffiliate on Instagram? Just add the # and a name of your choice?
Reply
neilc Premium
Done.

I've always been in two minds over instagram - as to position myself from an affiliate marketing brand standpoint or just be real like you guys.

I've kinda slipped into both categories lol.

But now it's got me thinking that since I'm doing bootcamp and the blog attracts folks to WA from all walks of life, then it makes perfect sense to make my Insta more personal - mixing things up, using various hashtags and engaging.

I guess you never know who you're gonna bring into WA through your Insta profile ;)

Well there are lots of Instagrammers here with big following and they are driving a lot of revenue through IG. But the thing is, you have to be authentic. People have to be captivated by you, and this is done through constant marketing messages.

Be authentic, and introduce tasteful promotions when it makes sense to do so. I think that is the best way to go about it. ;)

That's great! I was a little confused when I didn't see Instagram in the training for the social media side of things. But seeing as I am 15, I knew how valuable it could be, so I went ahead and set one up anyway.

Kyle Premium
Yeah, there is going to be a lot more on IG Moving forward, and we certainly have a lot of Instagram experts here within WA. Perhaps one day you can offer your insights and own training on the subject. :)

Hey Kyle I have an Instagram account but I'm not sure if I should set it up as personal or business related what is your opinion?

Business will give you more features, it will allow you to get more sophisticated data, have automation features, and also allow you to promote on there as well.

My excitement went through the roof when I saw Carson's post about the New Era of WordPress Hosting coming to WA. I cannot wait.
Reply
Carson Premium
Lots of awesome stuff coming on the hosting front Minhaj - we're working hard to get our new server class up and running. We have a few folks already on the servers helping us test them out - putting the finishing touches on the servers now. We're also working hard on the upgrade process as we want EVERYONE at WA to upgrade to the new servers as it's going to be completely FREE OF CHARGE to existing Premium members :)

This is great! So do you recommend Instagram over Pinterest? Do you feel that you can brand yourself better or give people that "trust" and personal feel they are looking for better with Instagram? I've always thought Instagram was more like Pinterest in that you share photos and infographics. Is there more you can do?

Could I post articles there? Or is it more geared for brand and building personal trust with people online?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yes, you can post articles and content there. People don't want to be inundated with promos from you, so just be careful about that.

You can certainly get newfound reach with your content and if you are sharing great stuff, you can go viral.

Have you seen my blogs on WA? All I do is publish great content that pays it forward and shares amazing ways to do better with the WA training and conquer traffic on the web. I wasn't able to find a post or add button anywhere on my Instagram back office yet, but I'm sure I'll find it with some research when I have time, and then I'll start posting great how-to content. I'm not the promo promoter type, I learned my lessons and I just pay it forward now. Cheers!

Yeah, that is definitely the case. In particular in an industry where there are people that get taken advantage of on a regular basis, the authenticity that can be displayed and portrayed through Instagram is a really powerful thing.

Great to connect on IG brother!
