Vegas 2017, Epic. Vegas 2018 Will Be Next Level.

Last Update: January 05, 2018

Las Vegas 2017 was a hit and we are just ramping up to our Las Vegas Conference in 2018

I thought I would give people an overall synopsis of what took place in Vegas in 2017 in respect to discussions, how the event went down and also provide you with inside look “pics”(that pic above is an actual pic from the balcony of where the event took place).

First, there were 12 of us in total in 2017. There were many others that made it, but like every year we have to set a date and sometimes family, health, or other issues can prevent folks from coming. It would have been by far our biggest and most proactive group this year and next year we know that there are going to be MANY of you that are reading this and just starting out that will be sitting at the table.

If you can make 300 unique Premium referrals between Jan 1st, 2018 and December 31st, 2018 you are going to be sitting in Vegas with us next year. It is 100% possible for YOU to achieve this and you have more than enough time to achieve this.

OK, so now for the walk-through of the trip.

Rolling in Style & The New “Bentley” Challenge

The Skylofts have updated their vehicles, for the last 6 years they have picked up their guests in a Rolls Royce, but they have updated their fleet to the Bentley Mulsanne. There are actually only 10 of these in the world and the MGM has ordered 5 of them.

So we got a chance to ride in one of these when myself, Carson and Jay (whom is also from our hometown) arrived in Las Vegas.

By the way, if you achieve over 3,000 sales you can get this treatment too. You will be getting your very own Skyloft and you will be transported to and from the hotel through your own Bentley.

If you can reach 300 sales, you can reach 3,000 and I know lots of folks are gunning for that this year. Will this be you.

The 4 Day Event, How it Went Down

The conference takes place over a 4 day period and we love to mix things up every year. This year was another year of surprises. We always like to keep it fresh every year, but also keep it consistent from one year to the next so the guys and gals that attend also know the format.

The first night we got together for a meet and greet in the loft (our room) which is approximately 6,500 square feet. We hung out for some drinks, hanging out, and of course some great conversations about business, life, and the general excitement that surrounds the Internet.

Followed by this are 3 days of meetings where we hang out in the lofts (fully catered) and discuss where we are headed in the year ahead, how to best help YOU and the community here, and some exciting and industry leading projects we are working on.

Here is a sneak peek of the conference area and this years WA swag.

When you attend Vegas, you get the current year swag which changes every year. This year we did high end water bottles, new mug designs, Bettoni pens, and leather bound Royce padfolios.

We also had $200 set out for each super affiliate for gambling. :)

Night 2: Craft Beer Night, LOTS of fun!

Like the Internet industry, the beer industry has evolved drastically over the past few years and for those of you that are into the craft beer movement will know what we are talking about (like Carson and I are).

We had it set-up in advance to have get some our favourite craft beers and some we haven't tried available in our loft for a craft beer night...with of course our WA brand craft paddles!

Not everyone drinks, so it is completely fine if you don't drink of course but we did get some of the finest crafts available for everyone to test their beer palettes.


From there we made our way to Carrot Top, the 8th rated show in Vegas. The tickle trunk comedian got us all in hysterics, one of the funnier comedians out there in my opinion and it was a great time.

From there we all took over a craps table with our gambling money and a few good rolls later we all ended up at least $200+, doubling our money! Not a bad start.

Night 3: Craft Steak and Old Vegas

The second night we typically do a really nice dinner somewhere. This year we went to Craft Steak, a Vegas renown steakhouse with some of the finest cuts around. It was a wonderful time as it is every year with some engaging conversation and a lot of really great laughs.

From there we took a super stretch limo and went to Old Vegas to spend the rest of the night. A nice way to unwind and hang out.

Night 4: The Farewell (Let's Go Bowling!)

This year we mixed things up for the farewell event, we switched hotels altogether and got a room with a two lane bowling alley in it. It sounds unbelievable, but that is Vegas. Just when you think something can't be done, it can. lol


Here is a group shot of the bowling night which had cash prizes. I think the top group took the title with an average bowling score of 120 or so (for all of you bowlers out there).

All in all, it was an amazing trip and it only seems to get better and better with every year that passes. We are already counting down the days until next years trip and we look forward to having many more of you down there next year. Perhaps we will have some new surprises up our sleeves.

So What Do We Have Planned in 2018?

As with every year, the CORE focus of all of our meetings is the service at Wealthy Affiliate and what we can do to make the platform better in EVERY respect. Every year Wealthy Affiliate remains the most progressive, innovative, and advanced platform in the online business world and we have plans on changing that.

I can tell you that this year our rollouts and the new features that are going to be available to members are nothing short of amazing.

We are focus on:

  1. A much more efficient and integrated website building experience.
  2. Better design and navigation (which includes mobile)
  3. New tools for managing communication with fellow members
  4. Expedited help for all levels of experience, from newbies to expert
  5. A Series of HUGE systems and platform roll outs to further benefit members
  6. Pushing the hosting platform beyond ANY Wordpress hosting experience in the industry
  7. Brand new ways to earn money within Wealthy Affiliate
  8. And much more.

In fact, the synopsis outline for the group conference in Vegas this year was over 36 pages. These are all discussions about changes and improvements that come to WA and as with any other year there could be 100’s of updates that take place within WA each and every month.

Some subtle changes that slowly improve the platform here, some much more significant rollouts. We are going to be changing the game once again in 2017 and doing things that simply are not done anywhere else in the industry.

WA is Doing Big Things…

And we know this is going to continue to be a trend with every year that passes. We are committed to you, to the community, and to the ethics of the entire affiliate/internet marketing world and we will not step our positive and innovative progression within this industry.

WA is converting better than ever...

Retention has never been better...

Overall user satisfaction has never been better!

As time goes on, it only becomes easier and easier to achieve Las Vegas criteria. 100, 300, 1000's of sales are becoming easier and easier with each day that passes.

One thing that we haven't deviated from in the last 12 years at WA is our focus on making our service better. Expect brilliant things from us in the year ahead, with many rollouts and new features here already taking place, but with LOTS to come.

Are You Coming to Vegas Next Year?

300 sales. That is it. Like I mentioned, as time goes on WA is only getting better as a service, as a platform and as a community.

We want you in Vegas next year and I personally know with some effort you can achieve the 300 sales and far beyond, even if you are starting out.

Every single person that was in Vegas this year was at one point a newbie, at one point hadn't made their first referral, and now there are many people operating full time and very successful businesses through the promotion of WA and creating a brand within affiliate marketing/online business world.

Again, here are just some of the things included in the All Inclusive and very Exclusive trip:

  • You will be rubbing shoulders with other Superstar Affiliates.
  • You will learn about our plans for WA in 2019 (brilliant stuff coming)
  • Your ENTIRE trip will be paid for!
  • You will be put up in style with beautiful accomodations
  • Entertainment is in abundance (gambling, shows, dinners, drinks)
  • Delicious food catered throughout the day.
  • Surprises, we keep things interesting ever year!
  • You will be heading home with our latest high end WA swag .
  • You will be in the best shape EVER in terms of your business

This can and will be you if you put forth the effort and please do know that you have an entire community of help to help you out every step of the way. 300 sales. Ready. Set. Go!

To YOUR success and seeing you in Vegas next year!

Kyle & Carson

Before I upgraded to premium I had a good look around . I'm wanting to be at the top of rankings WA and looking forward to it. I've been doing the training in the green box Getting Started and Affiliate boot camp. I'm now a bit confused. My fault .
Could you answer a few questions.
1 can I train to do my own website.( which I have )
2 I've been looking and reading a lot of contents regarding Getting started , Affiliate boot camp. Jaxxy , Rubix and live chat.

Would love to hit the goal but Vegas is not my cup of tea. I am a wilderness jungle backpacking gal, the Bentley has no appeal either.. I learned to dive in one many years ago but left that opulent life behind However if I do make the cut and the dates work with my schedule it would be great to meet some of the other Affiliates

I am following this Vegas trip for 3 years now. I am blown away every time I only even think about it. I want to join You guys. I want to meet You, Kyle, Carson, Nathaniell, Eddy Salomon etc. I know it depends only on me, but since I am in the SA program I really think I can make it work out for me. My goal is to get 300+ WA referrals until August 2018. I already have some awesome plans (beside the SA program) for achieving that...

Cheers,

I am looking forward to acheiving the 300 affiliate mark ... I think I can do it if I get the help from @Kyle for allowing people who join from my link to take a free trial (actually people residing in India are not allowed Free trial) There is a huge volume of people hunting for opportunities in MMO niche. I already have a webpage to invite affiliates http://earneasilyonline.com/im.html (but have not advertised it since people in my contact cannot join for free).

Set your goals high, and you will achieve much higher results. IF you set it at 100 premium joins per month, and you come up short you may have 30-40.

You are capable far beyond 300 premium referrals in a year, so it is absolutely OK to shoot for the stars and if you come up short, you are still going to be sitting on the moon!

Sounds to good. A lifestyle I have been missing out on for years since I left Hawaii (22 years my paradise). Never less it helps me raise my bar and behold I got a light-bulb showing up. My greatest struggle is in finding a niche I can be happy with. Since I live now in Germany (I am German) it could be beneficial to focus more on this local market and help expand WA's popularity.
Additional research conclusive, perhaps you could help me with some stats throughout the course. Thanks

I focused on the "Progress" course last year and didn't attempt the Affiliate Bootcamp at all. Having now gone through the introduction, the Bootcamp training seems to be simpler and may even start providing returns more quickly. I believe I can hit the 300 referral mark by the end of this year.

Sounds like a perfect round-up of a great rocking year. If I make it next year, I'll surely come fully loaded with ideas to make the WA platform even better than what it already is. Vegas sounds fun, but personally, I'd prefer spending time with all of you guys in a countryside farmhouse. And discuss things over a campfire. Beer or whiskey, anything goes :)

This year I'm focusing on improving my online business funnel so that referring affiliates who upgrade to Premium becomes a regular activity.

As stated elsewhere, my goal for 2018 is simply to refer one long-term Premium member per month (or 12 in the whole year, as long as the "average" is one-Premium-member-per-month).

One that step has been achieved, I can then run the process at a more intense level, scaling up to a rate of one Premium referral per day, and therefore "Las Vegas in 2019".
Reply
Kyle Premium
Set your goals higher, and you will achieve much higher goals. IF you set it at 100 premium joins per month, and you come up short you may have 30-40. If you set at one per month and you come up short, you will have less than one.

You are capable far beyond 300 premium referrals in a year, so it is absolutely OK to shoot for the stars.

Ok. I am just doing what the lesson suggests. Just being honest. I have way too many other goals on my list right now to add yet another. My goal is set. Get my first 100 Wealthy Affiliate referrals this year. I'm not really feeling Vegas so much right now. I went there years ago and it was way too much smoking which almost made me sick and I am not into gambling. I have ended up with serious bronchitis twice in my life behind being around cigarette smoke. I also have mild asthma. If it were not for Vegas still allowing public building smoking it would be ok. I would LOVE to go there and be able to go to the various shows and enjoy the hotels in peace but I cannot. That is my take. My goals right now when it comes to Wealthy Affiliate Bootcamp center around seeing whether I have what it takes to make money with a blog that I create from scratch to promote Wealthy Affiliate. At the same time, I will be applying new skills to my office blog that currently brings in a ton of clients into our office - so it can also start earning me passive income. Once I get there then I just might revise my goal. I suppose - right now - I feel just like I did when I first started massage therapy school in 2009. I recall now sitting in class one day and thinking - Gee, I could spend $8000 on this school and then find out I suck at it! Of course, now our office has some of the best reviews in our area for our massages but that is where I am at with this. Just have a LOT on my plate like serious weight loss (lost 60 and have another 100 lbs to go), taking my practice to a whole new level, etc. etc. so as I grow, my goals with get revised. Right now, I want to sit at the feet of Kyle and Carson and other teachers on here and learn and DO and learn and DO.

A few years ago I traveled all over the Australian Outback in a beat up old Kombi that I bought for $100.

This is going to be my main focus to start with in Wealthy affiliate. The goal of making 300 referrals comes out to roughly 1 a day. that seems like a pretty realistic goal. However I am going to put the pressure on right up front and go for 100 referrals by the end of March. 100 in 60 days to jump start my goals and also put me into a bit of money that I can count on as I build other sites. Vegas Here I come.

Exactly, that is one person out of 3.75 billion people online That could benefit from the services here at Wealthy Affiliate.

So again thank you for being you. WA community in the short time ive been.a member has by far opened my mind and eyes in terms of surrounding yourself with likeminded.individuals all with the same genuine.goal in mind and thats creating success stories while helping others create theirs. Nowhere online in my experience can this been found on such a large scale.

I am no gambler nor may not enjoy sporting events, nor a drinker, but this is something I have never gotten anywhere near due to personal issues on a grand scale. I have successfully worked out most of this baggage from my life, with just remnants left now.

I am ready to systematically put my time and effort into the system and training here to put myself where I need to be in life as a productive citizen in the United States.

The Convention is awesome, but far better is what happens to one's income if they are able to pull the 300 qualifying referrals needed to make the trip. After sitting out for three years and a fourth without Internet access before this three-year period, I have removed the weights and can now go full speed ahead.

I'm back here again with no reason why I can't make this work as intended.

You don't need to be a gambler or a drinker (many folks that attend are not), you need to be motivated by business, helping others, and gaining insight into the year ahead here at WA!

I want to see you make this in the year ahead Daniel, we would love to have you there!

That is kind approach to business and there'll be many different ways that you can pay it forward once you start achieving success (that is what the community is about here). Not to mention that you will be in a great position to scale your own business. ;)

I'm really looking forward to a steep learning curve and new experience using a computer for very different purposes than I did during my previous employment. The focus of learning, earning and giving/receiving helpful information on a friendly, social basis should be much more enjoyable than problem solving, model building in a pressure cooker type deadline environment.

There is definitely going to be a learning curve as there is with learning anything new, but you are to get the hang of things very quickly and you are going to be proficient with the process of building a website and your business online before you know it.

I look forward to working with you!

I applied to the super affiliate project. I start from scratch here. I will do anything it takes to go to Las Vegas.
I work here for 8 months already, had my first sells and organic traffic but now I want to start a new website and concentrate all I have already learned and all I will learn in future into this project.

Great to hear Stefan, sounds like a good approach as well. Start with your website in a "state" that you are happy with and a brand that you are excited about right from the starting point.

You can accomplish a lot through the course of a year, and you certainly can achieve Vegas in a years time!

I lived in Vegas for two years while stationed at Nellis Air Force Base in the 1970s, and loved every minute of it. However, my wife has never been to Vegas, and it would be just awesome if I could visit Vegas again along with her. So, what better way to do so; have Kyle and Carson pay for it! Vegas ...here I come!

Onward and upward!

No better way to go to Vegas than on someone elses dime, in particular when you get to meet up with some of the top affiliate marketers in the world (and you will be one).

I can't believe I let this slip through my fingers!!! UGH!!!

Kyle has been the one who has left me a few comments on my posts and responded to my PM's so I can't believe that I'll miss out on meeting him in January!

But I'm not leaving Carson out, either; I remember he responded to one of my questions with the quickness and had the issue fixed by the next day!

Oh, good grief...I'm actually getting emotional typing this! Perhaps I need to read this post every day, as a reminder that this will be the last year that I don't qualify to be in Vegas! I want to be there as a way of showing my appreciation for being a part of this incredible platform; to show others that this is the real deal, and for myself, as a reminder that my dreams don't have to stay dreams...they can become a reality!!!

While it would be nice to reach this milestone, I worked in Las Vegas casinos for 25 years. The last hotel-casino I worked was Mandalay Bay. I can honestly say that I would prefer to have 100 referrals than to go to Las Vegas. This does not take away this great incentive by Kyle and Carson. I always worked the strip, and when I left one property to work at another, I closed the door behind me and embraced my new surroundings. Besides, I had back surgery in June, 2015. It left my back very weak, and my right leg numb. So I can't walk any great distances. This is not an excuse not to reach my goal. In fact, I want to double my goal for 2018 to 200. I might make a post out of this and go a little deeper into why I feel the way I do.
Good Luck to those of you who go this year.

Okay, so I lied before. I was going to start boot camp back in January of this year and unfortunately things got in the way and I’m just now getting started again. I know that I’ll be seeing all of you in 2019 however.

I’m going to screenshot this comment and post it on my blog here at Wealthy Affiliate for motivation as I move forward in 2018 to hit the Vegas goal. When I finally pull it off, I’m going to post it for a second time so that everyone else here can see that it is fully possible to make your dreams a reality.

Getting to Vegas would be fantastic and its rewards very welcome. Apart from the business aspect, it's unlikely that I would be able to get to Vegas in this coming year due to personal circumstances.

Hi Kyle

Re Vegas, although it may appear to be a negative attitude and not one to be made openly, there are realities that we all at one time or another have to face up to. When answering the question about the Vegas trip I've endeavoured to reply in an honest way. Should I qualify I would not be able to attend. I mentioned that there were personal reasons. Unfortunately, my Wife has a debilitating illness and needs to be cared for 24/7. This doesn't mean that my interest in building W.A. is any less, I still have time available to work and look forward to creating a substantial income with yourselves, which can and will be done. Should I qualify for Vegas you could always "cut me a cheque" as an alternative "maybe" :) :) :) My "final word on this" is, always be positive, put the work in and go onwards and upwards.

The three months I have spent with WA so far I have focused on building a personal website, I have made one sale! I wanted to focus in on making that successful so did not pay too much attention to this bootcamp option.

Now that I do have a grasp of how to build a website on my own i thought Id start trying to get the ball rolling on this bootcamp and see if it is something I like trying out.

Its late in the year so definitely will not be setting my sights on Vegas but hope everyone who is going to have a lot of fun!

I'm always interested in receiving an all expenses paid trip to anywhere, although I'm not very fond of Las Vegas.

I don't see myself qualifying this year but anything is possible.

To be perfectly honest, I am someone who shouldn't focus too much on incentives like this. I need to focus on the process and not look too far ahead. Focus is something I struggle with.

On the other hand, once I get things going, that's when I will be more interested in an incentive such as this.

The bottom line for me is if I focus too much on incentives, I get off track and try to rush things. It hasn't worked for me.

The Vegas trip looks amazing. I'm wondering if you're still planning to do the event there after the shootings at the country music concert earlier this year. That might be something that might make people discouraged to head to the event. That being said, I would love to be able to attend something so exciting, but getting 100 people by the end of the year is something that I don't feel I can personally accomplish. Maybe for 2019, though!

Yes, we are still slated to go there this year. We certainly are not discouraged from going to Vegas and they are a resilient bunch down there (knowing several close friends now down in LV).

I really want to come but only time and referrals will tell. Maybe it's even easier to have referrals in my country if the Philippines is included in the Free Starter Membership.

I just hope I can produce referrals, not for Las Vegas if I cannot meet the number but for my own benefit engaging in the online business.

300 Premium referrals gets me a all expenses paid trip to Vegas. It also means over $50,000 in a year. That very nearly replaces my salary at my current job, which would mean I could start doing this full time, have complete control over my life and time, and give me time to spend with my kids (my inspiration for doing this in the first place). I will definitely be making this goal a priority!

True, my starting here late doesn't mean I cannot get rolling. But like I said, I need to learn all the tricks of the trade here so that I could convince my friends to join here. In less than a month of my joining here as a Premium member, I have learnt a lot and have been steadily climbing up the ranks. However, there's so much to learn and when I said it would be difficult to push for that 100 figure, it was more because of the "target" period of Sep - Dec '17 and I'm still very much a novice. Perhaps, when I have some kinda experience, I could try. The upside to this is, it gives me another reason to extend my Premium membership after this one expires :) Cheers!!

this is just the thing i need to prove to others that this is real and if it could happen for me then it could happen for them and they will jump on board. but i need to somehow get 100 to buy into it so i can be there taking pictures with Kyle & Carson, first. if i can get 100 without the pictures and videos of me in Vegas then how many will i get with them. Challenge Accepted!!!

hey Kyle, what other way can i earn my way or win that trip to Vegas? reach out a little further, i can't grab hold of your hand yet. i really want the experience because i love traveling so much and taking pictures and videos. i want to be in a comedy movie. and when i come back with all the proof that this is really real then i will have no hesitation going out there and spreading the word like it's the gospel truth!!!

Hi Guys, I joined the club in september, kind of late for this convention. I went to few conventions in Vegas. A result of measurable time specific goals that were achieved. I think two months given that my site is not up may be too optimistic, but I believe in miracles too. See you next one. Although, I live three and half hours from Vegas, I might crash the party.

I feel privileged to be apart of the Wealthy Affiliate community. One day I too hope to be among the elite family of WA affiliates. Am still going to work towards it even if I don't make it in Vegas 2018. But I will aim for Vegas one year and am including this upcoming achievement among my business goals.

Yea ha,
What fun vegas would be especially if Kyle & Carson are going to pay for it.............that's unprecedented. Always improving is a great attitude. An old saying: I'm not a Saint but I'm working towards perfection. It's simply not settling when you know you can improve on yourself today and Vegas is the reward for the effort.......today.....what other rewards we don't even know about yet that are coming when we reach these independent levels.....let I said yea ha. Thank you Kyle and Carson for keeping the light lit.

Having spent one month with your trainings, of course I would love to meet Kyle and Carson. But this is now such an unknown countryside, I am going to explore how French people react on the WA opportunity, and if a surprise pops-up, I will be the first pleased !
Above all, I want to say thank you for your vision and creation.

God gave you a marvelous brain!! I tried WA a year ago and quit after lesson 4 on level 1. In January I started a yard care business and it has been very successful. However, it is very hard physical labor. Also I do not get paid very much. I now have 1 to 2 workers helping me. It is very hard keeping track of all their hours in the different jobs that need to be done. I came back to wealthy affiliate and looking at the program and decided that there was no way that I couldn't do it. So I have started with a vengeance and now have almost completed the very first level on getting started. I have already built my first website and have typed many articles already. It has been really easy and I have done the entire thing from my phone. I have not yet touched my computer. If I can do it you can do it. So hang in there and be persistent and work every single day spending several hours completing the lessons. Build your first website and then in the affiliate Boot Camp. I hope to see you in Las Vegas next year. You can email me at yourchronicpainsolution@gmail.com. My website is yourchronicpainsolution.siterubix.com. God bless you, Tom Purtzer

I'm going to be honest. I'm not all that motivated to go to the Las Vegas SAC. I'm twice the age of the average age of folks who attended the 2017 SAC above.

What's an old fart like me going to do with these young guys and gals in LV. I don't gamble and a glass of wine or two with dinner is the extent of my drinking habit.

But I so-o-o enjoy reading about the activities at the annual SAC. I've been to LV many times, and I'm not in to the 24 hour glitz.

I love this WA training platform, the community, and I think Kyle & Carson are the greatest young entrepreneurs I have ever had the pleasure to meet.

It definitely is not a gambling trip nor is it a booze trip. It is a trip about online business and a trip about our plans and focuses in your head to help you become more and more successful and to make the platform here at wealthy feel it best that can be.

Well...it is ideal I get to Vegas in 2018, however, being so new here and having no idea about affiliates and having tried so many other website ideas (I enjoy the learning!), I know it takes lots of time to get started and learn. With only 5 months left of 2017, and working/studying full-time, my chances don't look promising. Perhaps Vegas in 2019 is more achievable!

We were all "new" and "just starting out" at one point. You are going to be just fine Melissa and there is no better time to get started than now.

Hi if any of your successful affiliates don't drink, gamble or smoke
out of choice or cultural reasons. What alternative can you offer? because I learnt that on a business or personal level, it is good accommodate diversity. At Toastmaster's this is what we learn. I love traveling but due to the above reason it would be difficult for me. I think cash incentive would be best. Anyway its great you guys take care and I hope as a team we are successful. I believe in Win Win Situation. Kyle and Carson thanks for your encouragement and being patient with me so far. By the way your kids are really cute.

Incredible. Let's break it down.
I just joined. I have 6 months from now till the end of 2017. This means, every month I have to get 50 refferal. Every week should be 10-12 reff. Every day should be 1-2 reff. It still makes sense right?

Next...

I have to check my "to do List".

1. "The Green Button", is the course material already practiced?
2. What is my preferred niche?
3. My website design, is it as recommended?
4. Is the web content occupied?
5. Traffic problems?
6. Optimize the WA community for my success. Learn from the leaders and members of the WA community.

Wish me luck!

We spend our time between Portugal and Hong Kong. Do you fly international affiliates to LV? Work for it and eventually this will work. At least you don't have to carry any inventory. (WINK). I think the yearly fee is spot on and it's clear that you are entertaining more values than simply price. It seems to me WA is sincerely doing good. Doing good is way better than simply making an effort to do no harm. I hope I make some good friends and collaborators in this community. Retirement could be fun.

Our focus has and always will be on the service and the value we offer. We have not changed our price in the 12 years we have been in business so I think that our focus on the platform and on members is more than apparent.

Retirement can and should be fun and operating a flexible online business is definitely ideal!

Hi,

As far as I know anywhere from this globe can be in Vegas 2018 since it is open for everyday but of course we need to invite or refer 300 WA members before end of 2017. So, we still have few more months...

We were all new at a point in time, this is not going to be a limiting factor here. I really do look forward to working with you here and I know that you are going to really start to see some results as you push forward.

I don't expect to get 300 referrals by the end of the year, but I'd be pleasantly suprised if I do. I prefer to start small with my goals to not set myself up for dissapointment (and I still have ambitions!).

I got some clever marketing ideas though, so lets hope.

PS: Will the new layout of WA support widescreen resolutions? The empty sides are bothering me. I'd love the middle to have more space for text and such, as I find it easier to read that way. I only find this layout good for laptops.

Expect it. Work for it. It can an d will happen.

If you do come up short though you are going to be in prime time position to make it subsequent years.

ALL websites have empty sides if you look, we follow internet standards with our development here. No advanced technology site would program for full widescreen.

I've had pretty ambitious expectations in the past and got upset for not reaching them, so I'm playing it safe for now. My mind during the start of the year was rough (and has been like that for years)...I've been climbing out of a negative mindset this summer. It takes steps.

As for web design, alright. I can look foward to a more mobile-friendly version, though. Of course this site will always be the best for PCs, but it would be nice to check in on what people are saying without the need to zoom in constantly.

Hello, Kyle: I have been with WA since 12/16. I actually hate to admit this but I completely missed that Affiliate Bootcamp was devoted to affiliate marketing of WA. I just started the bootcamp today. In 6 months, I did set up a decent website, How To Make Money INternet Marketing and bring in 4 people, who have not yet signed up.
But think what I can do with Affiliate Bootcamp training? My goal is 2 signups per day for the rest of 2017, or 320 people. It would be a dream to go to Las Vegas.
Cordially, David

Sure, you are more than capable of doing this David and time goes on and as we continue to improve the service here at WA (which we do with each day that passes), it is only going to get easier to promote WA...and there will be many new ways in which we can promote it.

Las Vegas is not exactly my favorite town. However, I would be so happy and proud of myself if I made it. Las Vegas is an interesting place to walk at night. Yes, there would be a really big smile on my face if I made it. I would really be happy.

Yeah, you don't have to do Vegas how others do it. You can come for the conference, the great conversations and great meals. It will be by far the most motivating trip of the year. :)

I have never been to the states before...Maybe one day I will make it to Las Vegas in order to have a beer or two with you all :-) But first of all I would like to work hard and possibly will see you in 2018 in Las Vegas :-)

Well this is the perfect opportunity. Let's make this happen in the year ahead.

I will try my hardest. But most importantly being here on WA is great fun for me. So I think I will reach my goal one day. No need to put that much pressure on it ;-)

My conscious mind is questioning...is it possible to make 300 by Dec-31??

Thinking Numbers:
Time to work on training : until June 30 (really roller coster).
July - Nov: 154 days
Dec: buffer of 31 days to make up any shortfalls
No. of referals required = 300 referals / 154 days = 1.94 per day

1) How many sales would I need per day? 2
2) How many unique visitors to my site-may be 2000 or 5000 (out of 1 billion people)...need to work out
3) Conversion rate don't know need to work out

Instead of thinking is it possible, I am pushing myself to think, "Why NOT, How do I get there"...I guess mind will figure out during the journey...off course its going to be a roller coaster!!!

Love your goals and there is no reason to think this is not possible. It has never been MORE possible to achieve this and as WA continues to evolve and improve, it is only going get even easier to promote.

In fact, you no longer have to sell it, recommend people to WA, let them know what they are doing and let it sell itself.

I won't make Vegas in 2018, but I have definite plans to get there within the next 5 years. Am going through the Certification and Bootcamp for the second time, AND doing more of the tasks. This year I plan to monetize my website and start another one to get individuals to join WA.

Awesome to hear Roger, and yeah, focus on your existing website/niche. Bootcamp or the Vegas incentive is definitely not going anywhere. :)

Well that will be more than enough to get you to Vegas! As you build out your website and move through the training, you are truly going to be creating an authority website and one that can lead to a long term and very successful brand online!

I just came from my horse down too. One website might be far not enough to reach that number within 6 months of time.... But hey it might be still possible if I can get up more websites running, perhaps 10
