How Is the Wealthy Affiliate Community Invaluable?
The Wealthy Affiliate community is an invaluable resource that can never be underestimated. If you are new here on the platform, then definitely take advantage of the wealth of help and knowledge that is abundant here.
Never be afraid to ask a question if you don't know something.
While affiliate marketing and doing similar things online isn't rocket science and just about everyone is capable of doing it successfully if they follow the training here, there still is a lot to learn, and after 2 years here there is still so much that I don't know myself.
My point is, there is always something new to learn that can help your online business and make it better. The training teaches you a lot, but sometimes you may find you don't fully understand the training.
This is where asking the community is just so invaluable. Help is only a few keystrokes away. Someone always knows the answer.
I've actually learnt more from the community here as a whole than I have from the official training. Not because the training isn't comprehensive enough (it is), but because there is so much more to learn that will help grow your business, and each and every one of us has something new and unique to offer. We also all have different insights and perspectives, and sometimes it takes someone else to see the true potential in something.
Most online communities can be a rather negative experience. They are full of competition, over-inflated egos and people who really don't actually want to help each other.
As an author I've been heavily involved in various author-centric communities in the past, and most of these are not very pleasant places to hang out. The same can be said for a lot of other make money online communities. Instead of being helpful, there seems to be a pervading culture of backstabbing and bitching. I don't know why that is, but it's rife throughout so many online communities, including popular social media channels. That's not to say that everyone is negative, but it is very commonplace.
The WA community is the only one I've ever been involved in where there seems to be a genuine air of positivity and encouragement for everyone else. "Pay it forward" is the name of the game here, and it works wonders. We all need encouragement, we all need answers to our questions, and we all need to feel uplifted with positivity, rather than be torn down because we are seen as competitors.
Whether you're a complete beginner or an expert when it comes to online business, this is always a great place to hang out.
