Do you know you get paid for writing training at WA? [little rand]

Last Update: May 21, 2018

Yes, that right! You can earn money for this. A maximum of $75 dollars per training you write.

How does this work?


Until now, one training of me has completed all levels with 649 likes/ 724 comments cq views/shares.

My latest training, I worked on for 12 hours to write out the transcript for the Walkthrough video and create screenshots, for the community. It didn't even completed level 1=$5 with 25 likes and 12 comments.

And to be honest and tell you my feelings about this training

I am good but not crazy.

I know, for sure, many people here, are dissapointed in the likes they get for there effort of writing training for the community. They are giving their free time to please everyone as much as possible and make it as easy as possible for everyone to give information about subjects.

I think a little more appreciation would be appropriate here.

Hi Loes,
I think that very little is paid, in all the levels that you detail. I would do training thinking about the people that I can attract to WA. They will be the ones who will finally reward you. Once again I say thank you Loes for all the help you give us :-)

I feel really bad! I had no idea likes, comments etc contributed to monetary reward for the authors. I have benefitted greatly from a lot of member training and may have liked but I think I rarely commented.

For this I apologise and I will remedy that from now on. Thanks for letting us newbies know Loes, and I fully understand your frustration.

So it seems to me that the level payouts is more of a freebie bonus (regardless of how big or small). Isn't the overlying message here about helping people anyways? I had no idea about payouts for training, yet still plan to start creating some once I get through the certification and become better versed in what we do here. And let me say, I have appreciated very much the member training I have seen so far! Payout or not, we are all in this together. :-)

There are no clear rules about this issue, so I doubt in the scale you gave above. I have deleted all my trainings because I was not receiving credits (from WA owners) as you describe it. After asking a few times and not receiving any reply I said it was enough.

Now, you will not like what I say next so forgive me, but I do not think it is so cool asking people for "more appreciation". Nobody asks us to write trainings, so you get what you get. I am disappointed.

I know very well, the training credits can be disapointed, Jovo. And I don't ask, just for myself for more appreciatie, but for every training writer here, and to create more awareness.

You have your reasons Loes, cannot argue about that, I am expressing my views which may be disliked by you but this is my style, I rather hear a frank opinion than a superficial userless polite phrase. This is why we need friends, to tell us the truth when we become unaware of it. In medias res.

By the way, do you remember the case of somebody whose more than 160 trainings where simply deleted? WA owners let him publish them in a long period of time and then removed in one move without a notice.

I thik it is good manners to show your appreciation if you have followed and benefited from any training. Clicking Like is not asking too much.Many times questions are asked and answers are given without a Thank you.I know sometimes you can miss the tread.

I have clicked on links to training and it was not there. I think if you're going to delete the training, delete links associated with it. Why delete it any? Is it because it's outdated info? Or is it because the member is not with WA anymore? I have been disappointed a couple of times.

Hi Loes,
This is information I was not aware of. With all the training that is available here, small wonder that the efforts of the training writers often get overlooked.
I am not sure, I hope, that I Like when I go thru the extra training but I know that I usually do not comment. I will change that in the future.
I cannot give you points but I can say Thank You for the training you have given me in the past and assure you that I value your assistance.
Thank You, Loes!

You're welcome, I do like to share everything I know with the community, and I like to bring some awareness to the folks here that all likes, comments, and shares count for the training writer.
