The Green Button
Recently a member posted the following question: When is my post a success post?
Following the reply I gave him, I have decided to blog about it for a more detailed explanation about the topic and to give you the opportunity to share your views and participate in the discussion.
At first I didn't understand what he wanted; so i asked him for further clarification; so he explained. It was all about the green success button that you see below the blog editor "New Blog Post"
The Green Success Button
He wanted to know when to click on this button. He said that he never clicked on it because according to him a success post is a post with monetary achievement.
I respect his opinion. However according to me success is much more than this, What do you think? Please share your views.
(A) Success is Relative
It depends on what angle you are looking at it. Someone will see a cylinder as a rectangle and another person will see a circle; it depends on the angle of vision.
Is food abundance a success? It's debatable; Yes people die if they have no food, but people also die by eating too much.
Is financial abundance a success? It's debatable; Your life is at risk, isn't it?
Well let's come back to our topic; when to click on the green button?
Do we click on it only when we blog about monetary achievement?
ACCORDING TO ME, THE ANSWER IS NO
(B) Milestones successes. What is this?
Ok, let's say success is money goal. But to get the money you need to go through stages; the following is just a simple example:
1. Training completed successfully : success : success post
2. Website created successfully : success : success post
3. Website indexed on google successfully : success : success post
4. Traffic is coming successfully : success : success post
5. Get a new referral successfully : success : success post
6. Referral upgrade to premium successfully : success : success post.
(C) Different forms of Successes.
If you have been able to help somebody, is it not a success?
If you have been able to write a blog, a review etc., is it not a success?
If you've earned a new badge, is it not a success?
If you've been able to write a training module, is it not a success?
What do you think success is, as far as affiliate marketing is concerned, as far as you being a member of Wealthy Affiliate?
I personally like when members blog about their different stages of success, as such:
1. they can be encouraged to move ahead
2. others can also get inspired with it.
