About ShellSummers
Joined July 2014
Business Development | Growth Specialist | Marketing | Internet Marketing

My professional life began in the social sector where I worked my way from the bottom to the CEO, a position I held for 15 years. My approach to every challenge was good planning followed by marketing, technology, and innovation. During those years, I led my organization to among the highest for membership share and percent of revenue from donations. The fundraising and design process for a custom corporate headquarters was one of many tangible results of those years.

That stage of my career was exciting and rewarding, and was a perfect stepping stone to a career I am creating now in the field of internet marketing - a perfect mix of all of my top skills and passions, most notably: technology, marketing, relationship building, continuous improvement, strategic planning and lifelong learning.

As a recent graduate of Market Motive, I studied under well-known industry respected instructors: Avinash Kausick (Analytics), Bryan Eisenberg (Conversion), Greg Jarboe (Content Marketing) and Todd Malicoat (Search Engine Optimization). I am certain that combining these vital new skill sets with my extensive experience of success in setting and leading a strategic direction for an organization, along with new education, resources and powerful allies here at Wealthy Alliance, will highly leverage my digital marketing career.

I recently was awarded the following certifications from Market Motive:
• Internet Marketing Fundamentals
• Search Engine Optimization
• Content Marketing
• Conversion Optimization
• Social Media
• Analytics

I also have the Online Marketing Certified Professional designation from OMCP.

I love connecting with like-minded professionals in the marketing field who are constantly learning best practices, who know that success demands discipline and consistency, and who enjoy networking and sharing. I am looking forward to meeting everyone at Wealthy Affiliate. Time to get to work!

Reading your profile, I noticed you have joined WA the same year I joined WA. So, this can mean, you've just upgraded to Premium after years of staying as a free member. If it is true, that's good move of yours! :)

Hi Sherri,
I just wanted to thank you again about the feedback you gave me on my Swagbucks article. I took some time today and gave it a little more organization and clarity. So thanks so much. Sometimes we get into such a rush to get content that we forget about the structure and user experience. Hopefully it's more clear and direct as to what the Swagbucks program is and how to use it. I'm sure you're busy, but I pasted it below to give you a more clear idea of what it is.

Hello Schweid! Very impressive! Not just what you have done but what you are doing and the goals and aspirations you have to constantly develop yourself and what you can offer others. It is truly a pleasure to meet you.

I have been with WA a few weeks now and I can tell you that I have just fallen in love with it. I love what it has to offer in terms training and the community connectivity is incredible. I have learned as much from members asking questions as I have from the trainings. It is a wonderful place to be...and oh yeah, you can make a little money as well.

I look forward to getting to know you much better and working with you to help us both achieve our goals as well as help others reach their goals. Best of luck o you!

ShellSummers Premium
Thanks Mike. I appreciate your kind words. I'm in day 5 on here and still trying to figure out if this WA path is for me. I'm really looking for success stories. What I am finding is that people seem to get addicted to it, but maybe not achieving their original goals. Do you see that a lot? I am really trying and hoping that I can grasp hold and go for it here, but the layout of the site overwhelms me and it is hard to stay focused.
Reply
TorabbMarket Premium
Shweid, It can be a little overwhelming trying to figure everything out I agree. I have been here now since June 22 with a couple few day lapses in between, and I just continue to be impressed with what I am discovering. I think you will see that too once you go premium. For $19 it is worth the risk.

I have looked at so many different "opportunities" over the years and there always seemed to be a weakness of some kind for long term sustainability if not short term success. I don't see one here.

Bottom line is here you have to work. No promises of pots of gold at the end of the rainbow just because you sign up. You have to follow the training which is absolutely, positively incredible. You learn so much from Kyle. You also learn a great deal from the community. Whether you ask the questions yourself, or you are looking at other peoples questions that they post you will learn something new. Its a great concept.

One of the great things to me is the fact that there are several ways to make money. Check out this post to learn more about that.

Thank you. I feel like I am drowning. This site is very hard to navigate. I set money goals yesterday. Now I can't find them or if I got any feedback to them. Next step is to set goals for 10 days, 30 days, 6 months, 1 year. There is no place that I can find within the website to record them. This all needs to be more focused. I am not sure this is for me. Also sometimes I click on something and nothing happens. Like it is a nonresponsive browser issue, which made me question most user friendly browser issue.

When you put your goals they actually went onto the the 'Classrooms' > 'Getting Started' area. If you look on the left hand menu you should see it.

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/getting-started

You should treat classrooms as an online forum.

I've left a message on your goals so you should see a notification on the top right bar (Green Planet if you have notifications)
Reply
Boffy Premium
This site is full of a lot of information and at times it can feel hectic. Here are the bits you need to know.

Left Hand Menu:

1. Get Started Here (Green Button) -this is for your course 1, this is where you should go to learn all about affiliate marketing on WA. It remembers where you left off so you don't have to.

2. Live Chat - You may see this to the right hand side of the page as well, come to the live chat to get any quick support or just have a natter!

3. Build My Website - As it says on the label. You can have WA host your websites (premium). Come here to login and manage your websites all from WA.

4. Affiliate Bootcamp - Leave this alone for now. The Bootcamp is where you create a WA referral website and earn money from referrals. Obviously you want to start with your Niche so you can ignore this for now.
----------
Under the main tabs you will see the 'Training' area.
-History, the last tabs you were at.
-Classrooms, treat these as forums
-Certification Course, this follows on from the 'Get Started Here' green button. There are currently 4 courses on WA
-Live Video Classes, Jay holds webinars every friday for premium members. This is one of my favourite resources at WA.
----------
Tools, these will help you but are not essential.
----------
Affiliate Program, this is related to the Bootcamp. No need to touch this for now.

Now along the top bar:

Search Bar - search for users, topics, questions. This is a great place to find existing questions or tutorials
Aeroplane - This is for the bootcamp, ignore for now
Planet (Green/Grey) - This is your notification button. Click this to see what has happened since you were last on WA
Envelope - Private Messaging (Premium Only)
Pen - Start a blog, training resource, ask a question.
Rank - This is your social standing on WA.



I hope that helps clear things up a bit.

Welcome to WEALTHY AFFILIATE:

Since joining WA community after using a few other programs. I have found WA to be one of the best training program you can find. Kyle’s video tutorials have helped me get one of my websites ranked within the top search engines on the internet and it remains there today. This the proof that the WA training program can make a difference in any business. All you need to do is just follow the courses step-by-step.

Some of my past experiences, like most people, come from investing more and more into upsales to advance in a program, just to get scammed. One program, dragged me on for a months, making me buy more upsales without even helping me to get my website off the ground, never mind getting rankings..

You have just started your journey here at WA. You may find times that you get stuck or have a question. This is not a problem here at WA. You will always find someone willing to help. You just need to post you question in any of the discussions or in the live chat and someone will assist you. Sometime you may even get help from Kyle or Carson themselves.

As a new member here, you start out with Online Entrepreneur Certification getting started course (Level 1).

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1

If you have any question you don't want to in those two areas, contact me directly. If I don't have an answer, I will help you find it so we both can learn together. That is the way things are done here. Always keeping in mind that the only stupid question is the one you don't ask.

Let's face the fact…Why we are here?

To help each other succeed in their home business.

Thanks, Kyle. I am trying to make the transition from 6 weeks at Market Motive training onto this website. The navigation is challenging and hard to stay focused, but hopefully I will catch on quickly.

Kyle, I have been here for a couple of days and I am really struggling. I feel like I am drowning. This site is very hard to navigate. I set money goals yesterday. Now I can't find them or if I got any feedback to them. Next step is to set goals for 10 days, 30 days, 6 months, 1 year. There is no place that I can find within the website to record them. This all could be much more focused. Also sometimes I click on something and nothing happens. Like it is a nonresponsive browser issue, which made me question most user friendly browser issue. The site itself is very distracting to me. Am I just too linear for this approach? Do you have any advice for me to get me focused?

Hi Sherri,

Sorry you are so confused here, I can help you out. Within the top header, you are going to see an icon that looks like a world. This is your notifications and when someone responds to your goals thread, you will see this increment by one...in fact, any activity related to you, you are going to see your notification count go up.

Also, if you haven't already watched the WA Walk-through, I suggest you do so. This is going to walk you through what WA is and how to use it.

As for the navigation, the Get Started Here button is a "smart" button and will always take you to your last completed task, so click that at any time and it will take you where you left off.

If you have any further questions moving forward, do let me know and I will be more than happy to give you a hand. :)
