Over 60,000 Followers here at Wealthy Affiliate

Last Update: July 18, 2020

Yes, in my just over 5 years as a part of this amazing Wealthy Affiliate Community, I have over 60,000 followers. Here at WA, when someone signs up via your referral link, they automatically are your follower. That being said, I have referred over 1,200 friends to this amazing site in the past 5 years as well, so technically they followed me by default.

How many WA members am I following?

I actually am following over 460,000 WA members & ironically that equates to about a 12% follow back which is also the site wide % of the over 2 million members who have upgraded to being a Premium member.

What?

Doesn't my email inbox get blown up with millions of emails?

No, because here at Wealthy Affiliate you can simply visit your "Account Settings" then scroll down to the email settings and adjust them to only receive the important emails. Because I log into WA most every day, I see my notifications and work from them. I find no need to be emailed every time that someone I follow writes a blog etc....

Why do I follow so many members even though only 12% follow me back?

That's a great question and my answer to that is that it's all about networking and establishing our online presence. Much like other sites, Instagram where I have over 27,000 followers but IG only allows us to follow 7,500 accounts. With Facebook, they have a 5,000 friend limit that I have reached but many more than that follow as there is no limit on following. At LinkedIn, I have over 13,000 connections & on Twitter I follow over 4,700 and am followed by over 7,600. At some business social sites that aren't mainstream, I have over 20,000 followers as well.

How long have you been a Wealthy Affiliate Member & are You & I following each other?

Because I am following you, I am able to visit your WA Profile page here and if you have your website(s) and/or social media page(s) listed there, I can also view them.

Thank you Friends for always sharing and caring, all of our continued success is my daily Prayer.

I have been here now for just over 6 months. And I am loving it. I`m really motivated and inspired by your story, but surprised by the 12% figure. Were they perhaps starter members who only survived a short while.

You said in a blog that you were learning a lot daily then in 2016 are you still learning lots today?

What is the most important piece of advice you have received that has led to your continued enthusiasm and longevity with this platform?

What downsides have you overcome to maintain your continued enthusiasm and success?

I hace been here 6 months, I have completed the main training. What 3 tips would you give to people like me who have been here a while are seeing some limited success but sometimes have occasional seeds of doubt given to them, typically by non WA members.

I would genuinely appreciate your feedback on those questions.

Have a great day and thank you for sharing your story.

I appreciated the tips on settings, which I have now adjusted to reduce some of the less necessary ones.

Hi Trevor,

thank you for the great questions my friend.

I do indeed learn something new here everyday as there are so many knowledgeable members who have & still do share training.

The 12% is because just like many things in life, there are many who sign up but don't show up. The percentage is much higher for some members who utilize autoresponders & show their referrals the value of WA membership. There are also those who don't and they for the most part have an even lower % of upgrades.

Downsides would include the live chat being used more as a social forum, clogging the flow for friends who have questions to ask. Also, some members spend more time attempting to increase their ranking here at WA instead of their ranking with the search engines. Many "high ranking" members have yet to complete the training here at WA.

3 tips that I would share are:

1) Create a website for earning an income online as well as 1 for your chosen niche. Concentrate on earning with your make money online site while creating content on your niche site without worrying about the money part of it.

2) Find a mentor that is achieving the level of success that you would like and reach out to him/her for guidance.

3) Treat your business like you own it, because you do & don't ever forget your "Why" that you're doing what you're doing. That is the key to getting past the negative naysayers in our lives.

Does the above assist in answering your questions my friend?

Talk with you soon, you're welcome anytime.

Hi Julia,

yes I can & will my friend.

Click on your small picture to the top left then you'll see "Account Settings" then scroll down & uncheck the boxes that you don't want emails for.

Do you see it Julia?
