Over 60,000 Followers here at Wealthy Affiliate
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.
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.
