Our Biggest Day Yet, WA Classrooms are LIVE!

Last Update: January 28, 2013

The biggest day in the history of WealthyAffiliate.com has arrived.

We have just launched...

Wealthy Affiliate Classrooms

This is the new foundation that members of Wealthy Affiliate can use to get educated, to get help, to help others, to learn about topics they are interested, to become experts, and to achieve the most success ever.

This is the supreme level of organization that was much needed within the community. You can now get training on any topic you want within the specific classroom.

Each classroom is organized into the following sections:

Discussions - Create and Join in on discussions relating to the topic. Ask questions, share news/results, offer advice, get help, and help others.

Tutorials - A list of the tutorials specific to the classroom topic

Videos - A list of the video classes and video tutorials specific to the classroom topic. These include the live weekly training replays.

Courses - The lesson/task based course training that is specific to the classroom topic


This organization is going to lead to much greater personal expertise, more community experts and help, a home base for you to get help on a particular topic, and MORE success.

So who gets access to classrooms?

Well, everyone gets access. Starters get access to the Getting Started Classroom, which will take anyone from an absolute newbie and get them moving in the right direction. However, Premium members get access to an additional 10 Classrooms on various topics.

If you ever wanted to become an expert in the following topics, Wealthy Affiliate Classrooms is the ONLY place to be...

You will find classrooms right within your dashboard under the Classrooms tab (as shown below).

Once you are in there, you will see many classrooms. I will break these down for you and show you which ones are available to you depending on your membership level here at WA :)

Premium ONLY Classrooms

There are 10 Premium only classrooms that offer industry leading training and interactive discussions in the following areas:

  • Pay Per Click Marketing
  • Keyword, Niche and Market Research
  • Social Engagement & Marketing
  • Website Development & Programming
  • Everything Wordpress
  • Authoring & Writing Content
  • Search Engine Optimization
  • Local Marketing
  • Video Marketing
  • Email Marketing
This is essentially giving you access to TEN completely different business models that you can implement to build a successful business online. You can create a full time business within any one of these (hint: I started in just the PPC Marketing world). This is your quickest path to expertise and online success!

Starter Classrooms

If you are a $0 Starter, we also have some awesome classrooms in place for you that are going to help you move Newbie at a faster pace than possible and reaching new levels you never thought were possible.

As a Starter member, you are getting access to the Getting Started classroom (which is full of a ton of great training and discussion already!

Access the Getting Started Classroom

You also have access to the "The Wealthy Affiliate Platform" classroom. This will walk you through training on how Wealthy Affiliate and components of the system work.

Access the Wealthy Affiliate Platform Classroom

Hang out in this classroom if you ever need a hand with anything relating to getting started. Start a discussion if you have a question or need help, or join in on a discussion if you want to network with others.

AND when you are ready, you can upgrade to Premium and get full access to 10 brand new classrooms!

See you in Class!

This is the new level of organization within the community. We know this is going to be a hit and from all the testing and beta feedback thus far, it is going to lead to brand new levels of success and expertise here at Wealthy Affiliate.

Classrooms are your new platform, your new home base for getting training and help, your new platform for showing your expertise and building your brand here within the community!

Kyle -- I was just trying to set up a WP Store under WA hosting and asked for help in the on-line chat. One of the issues is that people will often give advice which is well just plain wrong. I was told that we do not have access to the Wordpress database on WA hosting. This is wrong we have full access as I discovered once I solved the issue, which was a corrupted php file.

What we do not have is a control desk to the server (not necessary in this instance). My question is could we implement a help-desk for technical issues such as this (you having many programming staff and all? I believe this would lift WA to the next level and stop people losing money due to plain wro9ng advice (One member suggested I take my hosting to GoDaddy or Hostgator) the advice given was wrong and I like the hosting here as it is fast reliable and free (I am Premium).

I know you were hoping that the Open Education concept would work but this is a major issue if the advice you get is just well wrong! Obviously it would be impossible to stop people giving wrong advice, but we need to be either able to rate their knowledge on certain topics or provide a professional help system which does not respond until they have the right answer. The guy on your ticketing system for hosting got the closest to correct answer, but I had solved it for myself by the time he responded and even he did not have the full story although he marked the matter as resolved. A proper system would not allow him to do that until I (the user) agreed that the matter was resolved to my satisfaction

This turned out longer than I intended, but is aimed to help you make the fantastic even better. I hope you agree and can put something on the back burner if not full heat!

Unfortunately sometimes people do give bad advice and I recommend that if you have any specific questions relating to a topic that you create a discussion within the most appropriate classroom. This is the best way to get thorough responses and many times start a complete thread on the topic (getting lots of feedback and also helping others). That is why we created the Classroom platform to organize training discussions like this. :)

In this case you would have wanted to put a discussion like this in the Everything Wordpress classroom and you actually still can with your findings. That would be awesome!

Thanks Kyle I think I will do that later today when I am not so busy trying to sort out the horses!

Thanks Kyle and Carson, your classroom upgrade gives WA a much more organized look and should help out the newer members stay on track. I know I was kind of jumping around between the "Training" and "Certification" which did get a little confusing!
Reply

Yeah, our focus now is going to be more integration. We want to limit jumping around and improve your efficiency here within the community. We have some plans for this and I think you are going like where we head with things here as we evolve. :)

Just another AWESOME addition to the already fantastic Wealthy Affiliate site! Well done guys and thanks for the re-organization of the training. Much easier to find and go through now, not that it wasn't great before... just makes it that much more efficient.

Hi Kyle and Carson, thanks for putting in so much effort and time to organize the trainings/tools/materials into the various business models of the Internet Marketing world. It makes it so much easier to just delve into one particular topic if that's the area we are targeting, instead of searching at random. I've been waiting all day yesterday for this launch, and am glad to see it has been rolled out! Thanks again guys!

Kyle Premium
No problem, I really do think that this is a game changer for premium members here. You can now efficiently and effectively educate yourself and become and expert of any topic you like.

Freedomseekr Premium
It is so much easier to find specific topics now! Great job Carson and Kyle! Before, I would start out looking for something such as a specific training or video, and end up spending a lot of time doing so because I'd get distracted while looking for it since there is just so much here. Now it is organized and just so much better! Awesome! Thank you :)

We felt your pain and this was a long time coming...unfortunately with technology sometimes it is a requirement to get other systems in place before you can bring them altogether. We are glad that classrooms are finally here, these are going to be a game changer for many folks here!

I'm so excited about this new platform. It's much easier to navigate through the trainings, tutorials and videos. Now I can just run to a classroom and check out discussions before I feel the need to ask. I was awful at finding good trainings and tutorials before..I seemed to get sidetracked or there were so many to "weed" through it seemed daunting. Thanks so much for continually making this atmosphere beginner (and up) user friendly.

Exactly, there is no more "sifting" through what is here, now you have hangouts when you want to learn about topics and themes that will help drive your online business. :)

Just when you think WA can't offer any more value to its members it brings out this new classrooms platform. I can see it far enough this new business model is DEFINITELY going to thrive within WA! Well done guys on adding more value and developing great new ideas! Entrepreneurial spark at its best :D

Thanks Chris, we have been excited about going in this direction for quite some time now. The speed at which someone can become an expert in a particular category is going to speed up drastically now that there is some improved organization and discussion interfaces here within WA.

chriscoyle Premium
Absolutely agree Kyle members will soon find that they are experts in specific aspects of marketing from the way its being taught now and even web development and programming by the looks of it which is awesome! The classrooms platform was a missing link. I'm well excited about this and I'm pretty positive I speak form most of the folk at WA too. Its also going to be a big incentive form people to join as well which helps us who are promoting WA. Going to get stuck in tomorrow Its late here in the UK. But honestly great work guys!

Yes for sure :). I have been wanting to do more "local chats" had a few of them last year, and this will be a great way to get the discussions going and be able to follow up and check in even if you can not join in live. Excellent way to keep it organized.

Fabulous ! when I started in at WA a couple years back, I was numb for awhile trying to figure out everything (yeah, I thought I had to figure out Everything) .I was a complete beginner, and I had trouble organizing a pathway.

I noticed other people were having the same newbie-problem, so as i started to find the most useful start trainings for me, I let other people know what they were.

WA has evolved thru several developmental stages since then, and here we are !

You've done it, guys---you've done it ! A brand-newbie now has not only starter training, but a pathway. And for those more seasoned, we have the ability to locate specific training far more easily than before. Thank you so much !

It absolutely is. This is our very first iteration of Classrooms and it will continue to evolve like everything else, but it has taken the system at WA as a whole and organized it into really classroom style discussions and training.

Yeah, it is going to lead to in depth discussions on topics that are current and topics that are often times confusing. Experience and expertise amongst members is going to be much easier to share and I truly believe it is going to lead to much more success here at WA! :)
