As you probably know, there is a rule: you must be a Premium member for at least 3 months before you are allowed to create training tutorials, courses, or video's.

Which is fair and understandable ... You need to prove that you are serious about the whole WA thing, right?

Now what I don't understand: why is that restriction still valid once I've upgraded to a yearly WA membership?

I mean, upgrading to a yearly WA membership it's a pretty strong signal right?

What do you think? What are your thoughts? Is my question fair?

I am not sure about the three months training here at WA is very intense, I have been here more then 3 months I would not even think about training tutorials, but many people come in to WA with the knowledge of marketing some have done it for years. So I guess you never really know how much the person really knows.

It is just like live chat, people join premium and the same day they join they are giving advice to people. It is the wrong advice but it is allowed. Needless to say I don't go into live chat anymore.

Thanks for your thoughts Karen!

You've said a LOT of true things :)

BTW Why the repulsion for the live chat?

It was just an example of how long people should be here at WA, before they take on the task of training or giving advice.

That's exactly what I said ... The 3 months is definitely not a guarantee that you'll be able to create good tutorials

I guess the same restrictions apply, we have seen those who are premium, go off just because they aren't earning money quickly, when they faili to understand this is THEIR businesss and NOT an opportunity

Thats my take on it

Rules ! are rules and upgrade doesn't necessarily gives us rights to move to the next level it only ensure our membership part.
Tutorial can not be skip cause we fill the upgrade gives privilege to make videos .
The process is outlined for our success at being a WA .

Because a lot of people do not have the knowledge or understanding to create training Zed and after 3 months most people will have learned a lot and also have the ability to run a training. I hope this helps
What you do with your posts is great and would be considered similar to a training and soon you will have the reins even looser :)

Thanks for your feedback Vicki!

And of course I get the point, but honestly ... I kind of disagree :)

Why?

Because ...

1. In my opinion in 3 months you can't learn enough (if you are a rookie) to create tutorials ... That requires a much deeper knowledge ...

2. As you said, the fact that you are a newcomer here at WA doesn't mean that you don't have the required knowledge ... Not to mention, that any new training material must be approved by our gods :)

Hi Claude,

You'll have my friend! Everything is hard before it becomes easy :)

And believe me, it's not about me ... And it's not about personal pride or anything like that ...

It's about commitment ... And I think a yearly membership is a sign of commitment :)
