299 Airplanes

Last Update: March 12, 2018

This is an encouragement post for those who haven't received their first Premium referral, it's my first one.

Yesterday was my first year anniversary with Wealthy Affiliate and looking back it went by quite fast. I've had a few milestones recently and this is another one.

I would like to thank my first Premium referral who joined yesterday and became one not long after, I won't leave their name. I will always be available to help anytime.

I hope those working hard promoting their WA websites who don't have a Premium referral yet will have the experience soon, opening the door for more!


I don't know what else to say except have patience and be ready to help as a sponsor should to any new member joining. We had help when we first joined, whether through our sponsor or the community, it was much needed to help us get the best chance at having the proper start for our online business.

Whether they already have a website or haven't created their first one, we should always be there ready to help, just as I have helped many members since not long after I joined.

From 300 airplane icons to 299, success to us all :)

Ahh thank you. That made me smile. I have had a tough week.

Anyhoo... I am back with new enthusiasm for WA and creating posts at a rate of knots! Now I just need my first little "airplane" to take off as well.

This is great Patsy. Now just getting those referrals to stay is a problem I face. I need to go back and do some extra training.

Well done and onwards and upwards for sure.
The ladies will take over Vegas this year for sure.

Hi Deb, thanks!!

It's not the training needed if they don't stay. This is my 5th referral and only one that went Premium.

The 2 from February both have their website badges up but no other movement and the other 2, one from January and the other from August only made up their profiles.

Kyle told me they may all be back at some point. He states 1in 8 join so have patience.

Yessss! The year has just begun and this is doable. Women will take over Vegas for 2019!!

Thats what I love also about this platform too. I know that emails are consistently sent out direct to my referrals that dont bother to upgrade.
So I was kind of shocked to hear in live chat that when a referral wanted to leave somebody said turn off your email notifications.

Now obviously I never went into detail with them why because I wasn't in he mood for the challenge.

I was thankful I suppose that it wasn't my referral. Live chat can be pretty scary sometimes for newbies.
Kyle and Carson consistently work on our referrals for us too. I dont suppose most people know this.
Anyways Patsy Best wishes as always. ;-)

I'm not on live chat like I used to be, I pop in once in a while for a few minutes.

I know Kyle and Carson have their auto messages going out too which is great.

Thanks and best wishes to you as well :D

I do my daily quota in Live as Kyle asks us too in our super affiliate challenge. I actually learn quite a lot from live too as it goes :-)
Reply
PatsyC Premium
I see that from many members, and a few mention on live chat how they need to do 15 minutes.

I also learn when I'm on and it's things I don't need for my website, but may want to in the future so it's all good :D

Hi Delores that's the best way to think!

I have 5 referrals in the past few months all one after the other, this is my first Premium. 3 of them were through social media which I'm still fairly new to me. I ran from it for months but made myself join one at a time learning each one first before joining the next. You get more attention and traffic with them.

If you don't have social media yet it's a good idea to join. Twitter and Pinterest is where I got 3 of them.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing.
I wish you all the best as well :)

elores Premium
I have twitter but I don't know how to use it to post my links for my post. I have not joined Pinterest as yet. It looks difficult for me, but I will try it soon. Thank you very much.
Reply
PatsyC Premium
Hi Delores,

I had no idea either and thought they looked complicated and didn't bother. I eventually did a search here in the 'search for help here' bar and used Robert's tutorials. Keep in mind that social media platforms update often so some things may look a bit different.

Here is one for Pinterest All I entered was 'Twitter' in the search bar then 'Pinterest' and lots came up but the rest are older and the two platforms changed a lot so they are useless.

I have Instagram but you can only post pictures and write a line about it so I'm not there often. FaceBook owns it so it's mostly family and freinds who usually don't have an interest anyway!

Do you have Google+? it was the first taught in the lessons.

I have a couple of WA posts about social media you may have missed that will help you.... The link for the previous post is in this recent one. I'm so glad I joined! I learned one before joining the other and you will see the dates in the link of when I joined each one.

It's not that bad at all, I wasted months for nothing!

I'll send you the links for the ones I have so we can follow each other in a PM.

You can take a look at mine to see how it's done. I would go to someone's page and navigate how they do it which helped a lot and you can use mine :)

I've been in your shoes and know what it's like treading into the unknown. I thought Twitter was too fast paced but is totally the opposite. It's no different than posting on Google+, Pinterest or Instagram. It's all about sharing what we have, engaging with others and we get attention.

Thanks and wishing you all the best as well :)

Most of it is because of social media, I ran from it for months. It gets you a lot of attention and traffic. I would have had it sooner and not this much later.

As I mentioned to another member, I should have joined social media instead of running from it months ago.

It brings attention and traffic faster than without it. It's not as bad as I thought!

I ran from social media for months and should have joined more after Google+. I wasn't active on Google+ until I joined the ones I added.

It made a huge difference for getting attention and traffic. My best ones are Twitter and Pinterest. I got 3 referrals through those and 2 from my banner.

I hope you cross that tunnel soon :D
Reply
DBlanchard Premium
I have a brand new website (well since SWAG) and I also started to see traffic coming from G+ and Facebook. Haven't updated my Pinterest yet and Twitter has been quiet too.

But I have learned and seen people get a lot more traffic from social media! so once I have finished my posts planning for this month, I'm jumping in full speed.

I expect to see some results before the summer. I hope anyway! :D
Reply
PatsyC Premium
At least you have the other social media accounts set up ready to go. I had a referral only a couple of days after I added Twitter although that referral is a student and maybe not ready for WA yet, at least it showed me Twitter was a good one.

Hoping to see a success post from you like mine in a few weeks!

It's true how the longest journey starts with a singe step, well said.

I hope to get more and for someone as myself who loves to help fellow members, new ones are at the top of my list. I won't forget how I joined with barely any computer skills.

Without the help from my sponsor Jerry and the community it wouldn't have been possible.
