Newbie here, trying it out.

We'll see where this goes and how fast it can keep my pace ;-) :-P

OK! Just realized that THIS is supposed to be my Bio... Oooops... Just go check my blog called "a bit about myself"

Hi Regis,

Welcome to WA Premium & Congratulations on taking the first step to creating a legitimate income online my Friend!

Now that you are a Premium Member here at Wealthy Affiliate, You are able to and should add your Social Media sites and/or your websites to the bottom right side of your profile page.

Friends at WA, as long as they are "Following" you are then able to visit them and connect with you at those places as well. It's a wonderful way to increase you Social Media Network and also to increase traffic to your website(s).

Great connecting with You and talk with you soon my Friend,

OK... now I have a PROBLEM :-(

For the of you who have read my previous post, you know that I went on a following spree... reached 200 people followed, and was told that I had reached my MAX.

But now that I cleaned up my list and brought it down to only 97, I STILL can't follow :-(

Oh no, you've followed the maximum number of people that you are allowed as a Starter member. Upgrade to Premium to lift these restrictions.

What do I do?

Is my list gonna update to the reality of 97 only when the system refreshes? which I would guess probably sometime during the night? Or am I doomed to be unable to follow anybody else until I upgrade?

Thanks in advance for your 2¢ on that one

Why not upgrade to Premium? you receive so much more than being able to follow more when you do

I believe WA updates around midnight - although I guess that also depends where you are in the world ;)
Generally for me, the updates happen around midnight or somewhere in the graveyard shift.
For the followers, I've been a Premium Member for just under 3 months and I've loved every day of it. Its the most amazing online community filled with support and genuine people trying to help you reach your goals. Don't get too caught up with following others, but see if you can upgrade sooner - you wont regret it. If you think the support you're getting now is great, just wait until you upgrade! :D

Hi and thanks for your input,

Apparently it doesn't reset the counter for me. :-( 2 days later I'm still stuck with the "ooops" message. Probably a subtle way to incite to upgrade. :-(

Oh! Makes me think of a question. If I upgrade with the 19$ special but don't manage to get the results that I'm working hard to try to get, can I cancel (probably temporarily) to help me get the results I want before I upgrade again?

I'm a bit of a scrooge when it comes to investing in things like this. As I said eariler somewhere here (sorry I don't exactly remember to whom), there are too many sites that unfortunately don't always realize that not all people have the results as fast as it can be, and paying 50$/month can result in a big gap to get to the zero point if it takes months before starting to generate income. I've already been through that. I don't want to go through it again.

- My referral link is out to 1000's of people right now through paid solo ads (against won credits, obviously :-P) Just yesterday, I got 18 unique clicks out of 44 raw clicks to my referral link.
- I've joined affilate programs and started posting articles to online stores. In 3 days, I've gotten 11 clicks.
- I'm about to be in the top 100k :-) which seems to be a good sign as to how I'm progressing.

In short, I don't think I'm doing that bad, but I also don't think (yet) that, at the speed things are going, that I'll have started generating at least the equivalent of my WA monthly payment within a month.

I'm here to MAKE money, NOT spend it :P

Well done! You seem to be doing really well with all the clicks and links and everything. And I can see your point, if you've been burnt before with Affilliate Marketing scams then i can totally understand your hesitation in signing up.

No one can convince you to sign up or pay the $50 per month. But I guess you do have options... You can wait until Black Friday when WA has a reduced fee for the year so its even less than the
$50 per month now. Or you can get two referrals on board and you will automatically get about $23 or $24 each month from them which can essentially pay for your membership. Or you can bite the bullet and pay for 3 or 4 months subscription, complete most of the online training offered and then start submitting your own training online - which you can get paid for too. Its why so many people are keen to help out here and offer training, there are massive incentives! Another thing you can do is sign up and get into the top 25 or the top 12. I cant remember which it is, but there are more incentives for that too.

I've heard of one guy who signed up and within his first month he earned $50 000. I saw a post online of another guy who signed up and after 3 months had doubled his monthly salary or something like that. So there is potential to earn and you can do it through your own website or through offering support back on WA.

To answer one of your questions, i think you can sign up for the initial month and then cancel it for the second month if you want. But then i dont know how it would work signing up again after that.

For me personally, I have been burnt in the past with schemes and scams and being apart of WA for almost 3 months, it has shown me that this community is definitely no scam and definitely no joke. You put the time and energy and effort in, you WILL see the rewards. When is a question of how hard you want to work and how quickly you can get through the training offered. I made the decision to accept its going to cost me $50 per month in the short term, but its worth it to reap the rewards of multiple websites being spam free and secure, and generating income for me while I sleep or while Im holiday.

There's another guy on here who set up a website and now it generates on average $300 a month and thats without him doing much with it. WA will let you have 50 websites hosted here. The possibilities are endless - as is your future income. But unfortunately the bottom line is still: upgrade to Premium.

Oh for the rankings online... That is based on how often and active you are online. I jumped from 136 000 to 89 000 in a few weeks and then in the space of a weeked popped down to 24 000. A few days later and i was down to 14 000. If you're active in the community, you will decrease your ranking number. But it doesnt necesarily mean if you're closer to one you're closer to earning more money. Some people are in the top 200 and hardly earn amy money and some are making thousands per month.

I hope this helps a bit. And good luck!

Hello to all,

I wish to ask for pardon to the massive amount of people that I started to follow and ended up unfollowing.

I have not seen (not yet) a mention that when you're on the free account, you have a maximum of 200 people that you can follow.

Since I want to be able to follow the people that help me, I will have to put to later my coming back to following you.

Learn from my mistake and DON'T go on a following spree. Wait until you go premium, and from there, see how many you can follow before following many people.
