Completing your account setup is important.

Last Update: August 21, 2015

If you're a guest here at Wealthy Affiliate, I am assuming that the reason that you're here, you want to make changes in your financial future. You did some researches by using the internet to find where you can get the training you need to accomplish making changes to your financial future.

Are you serious about your future?

I am hoping that the answer to this question is yes. When you went to a website that gave you some information on Wealthy Affiliate University. Were you serious when you joined at zero cost? Many Universities charge fees just for you to enroll.

Did you understand the Starter Membership?

I am curious if visitors to our sites are understanding the processes involved in becoming a member here at Wealthy Affiliate. Did you understand that the membership and training here involves you paying membership dues. Don't expect everything to be free, you pay for quality training you get here at Wealthy Affiliate.

The membership fees are not high, when you consider that you're getting free hosting of your websites and two free websites.

Did you complete your account setup?

Unless you're not serious, and you came here just being curious, you should complete your account setup as soon as possible. This doesn't obligate you in any way if you decide that Wealthy Affiliate is not what you're looking for. Please complete your account setup now, if you haven't already done so. Here is a link where Kyle explains the easy process of completing your account setup.

Boy did this need to be said ... thank you Prince. There has been an increasing trend here in the community where we are asked to welcome a new referral. A practice which is not taught in Bootcamp training buy the way.

If I click on the referral and I can see the new member has completed their account set up as encouraged by their referrer, Kyle and Carson I welcome them. If I get the black blank ... the big nothing, I just delete and move on.

For me the message from the Starter Member is clearly I'm not serious about this ... I have no intentions of taking a very long look.

I have been asked to welcome many referrals. In keeping a record, I see that they have not done anything else beyond being a referral.

Last September I obtained about 200 referrals as the result of a Solo Ad. Not one submitted their bio information or acknowledged the 2 or 3 messages by Kyle. So it has almost been a year and they are still my referrals and haven't become an active member.

Unfortunately Prince, more than 50% of referrals do not even complete their accounts. Many are curiosity seekers and some probably had intentions of starting bur found the whole WA experience too confusing for hem to spend the time and figure out.

But the nice thing about the lifetime cookie is that if they do not complete their account now, you will still get credit if and when they do weeks or months later. If every referral became a member, and especially a premium member, I would definitely be going to Vegas.

A very interesting statistic. You would have thought if they signed up for WA they would at least do some investgatory work which should lead to more involvement.
Do you think Kyle and Carson are happy with a 50% acceptance rate?

50% is just my personal observation. But like I said, they could always complete their accounts at a later date. Most times people do things and then get back to it when they are ready.

If you look at a majority of these members asking others to welcome a new referral, their new referrals have yet to complete their accounts which in my opinion does not qualify them as an actual referral. An invited guest, yes, a referral no.

Thanks again, Robert. I feel that if a guest haven't at least completed their account set up to network with other members here, why would they qualify for a big welcome. They haven't even acknowledge the community here. When the guests recognize the community, this is when the community should recognize the guests. This is just my take on this.
Signing up and not doing anything, just doesn't make much sense to me. If I wasn't serious, I wouldn't have joined up in the first place. What is so difficult about having a profile page, even if they don't remain?

I agree with your first part Prince. When I see members asking me to welcome a new member I will not welcome them unless they have completed their profile because it makes no sense in welcoming someone who hasn't even set up their account.

As for you second part many people join and then once inside either realize it was not what they thought or they feel overwhelmed and confused and don't continue. Some continue later. I've had a couple referrals who took months to complete their accounts. There are many reasons why one might not complete their accounts. You just have to ignore it and move on.

I agree, Robert. I was confused when I became a member, but I didn't remain quiet and not do anything. There are a lot of members here that can offer encouragementto guests that are confused, they need to speak up. Thanks, Robert.

Just to make things clear, Robert. These statements made on this subject is not just about my guests not completing their account setup. I am speaking in general terms about this. Thanks again, Robert.

I understand your meaning and I agree. I wish the 170+ referrals I received that didn't bother to complete their accounts, did so. Perhaps at least half of them would have gone Premium.
