Let's Discuss Why We Create Training

Wealthy Affiliate has provided a platform whereby one can Pay It Forward in many ways and one of them is to create training on how to improve your online business and succeed at doing so.

This training is remunerated sporadically according to the scrutiny of Wealthy Affiliate.

When you create training at Wealthy Affiliate it should be remembered that not everything is suitable training for this specific platform. If you are not sure what constitutes accepted training, check the related links at the end of the tutorial.

If you are about to create training, remember that the best training is the simplest so that everyone can follow it. Use short sentences and short paragraphs. There are many members in WA who are from other countries whose language is not English and they would benefit from your simplicity.

Your ultimate aim is to assist other members in the know-how of something they are struggling to apply or understand.


Now that we know Why To Create Training, let's Check The Training Preparation Checklist

Yes. The training will help you to continue. And if you have any other questions I am more than willing to help where I can. That is what WA is all about. We want everyone to succeed. So please just ask.

I made my first training video and tried a second one but got this message: Oops! You have reached a maximum limit to create a new training. You can create training at Wealthy Affiliate after some time.

Can someone tell me what the limit rules are? I haven't been able to find out.

Darleen - Have a look at this tutorial by Kyle. Check out his discussion on success levels.

I think as you move through the success levels you get to make more training.

So if your training gets lots of comments, likes and engagement you get to move on.

I have never done any training but it makes sense to me that one may not be able to advance without some positive interaction from the community.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, I was able to make a training the next day, so either it was the comments I received or the fact it was the next day.

Hello Edu,
My question is how to add a screen shot to my training? I am using Windows 10, with a Prt Scr button on my keyboard.

If I press the keyboard button when viewing the shot that I want to take, and then right click on my mouse and click on paste in my training, nothing happens.

Thanks.

Thank you for this awesome training. You answered a question I was looking for! I couldn't figure out how to go back and edit my pages before publishing and you provided that info.

I do have a few questions.
1. Why wouldn't we want to share our content?
2. Can you give an example of why we would only want to share training with Premium members only?
Reply
TopAchiever Premium
There is a difference with you willingly sharing your content with someone and someone just blatantly taking your content and making it their own and laying claim to it.

I believe that this feature is there to give you the leverage to bring people into WA. If all the training was free, there would not be much paid membership here. It's what keeps WA afloat.

An example would be if you are creating training on How To Manage Your Website. Perhaps the first 3 or 5 lessons are free, and then the lessons from 6 onwards would require the people to become Premium Members, this could become quite advantageous to you in that if people join under your affiliate link from the training, you will receive commission from their membership.

Hope that explains a little.

Let me know if you are still unsure.

Regards

Edu

Hi Johny
The training has to specifically relate to creating a website for your online business and internet marketing.

The rules are presented to you before you create training and you have to agree to the terms and conditions.

I suggest you read them carefully so you can adhere to them.

If you need any further help, let me know and i'll do my best to assist you.

Reply
TopAchiever Premium
Johny, I believe you CAN actually use your expertise of engineering to help others who want to know about maintaining building infrastructure assets. This is a great niche.

I suggest you create your website around assisting others who need to know how to do this.

Let me know if you need any further assistance.

Thanks for this training, its an important educational tool for all people who would want to start their journey in making training. I have a question, how do you take screenshots on a windows pc and how do you include pointers on them. For example you are explaining a detail and want to point to a specific detail, how do you include a pointer?
Reply
TopAchiever Premium
Hi PMbaluka

Here is the training on how to take a screenshot: To create pointers on them, you can use the Tools on the Snipping Tool.

Hi Sandra, you have been in WA for more than 3 months, therefore you qualify to create the training now, were you using the required size for images? the content, pages? sharing? You see, it wont hurt if you repeat the procedure again when relaxed, and well prepared so that you can follow the procedure step by step. I know you can do it, all the best.

Hi, I tried to create my first tutorial, but there is a drop down button during the process that I am not sure what to do with it. It is the one that says beginning of tutorial or end of tutorial. It is automatically set at the 'begining' setting. When I try to look at the tutorial before publishing it, it shows up in reverse order. The last page is the first page etc. Do I have to start again? If so, what do I set that button to because it doesn't give you an option of page 1, page 2, page 3 etc.

Hi Edu, great training for those not familiar with how to create training.
Just one point, perhaps another page explaining how to insert and crop an image on their pages. It can be any size as long as it is more than 200 x 200 px, and can be reduced or expanded as necessary with a maximum width of 540px.
Reply
TopAchiever Premium
I've tried that myself and given up because it just reverts back to the same size when I do it. Perhaps you could enlighten me to what I'm doing incorrectly. Thus the reason for mentioning Pixresizer. Your assistance would be appreciated.

Hi Edu, sorry about the delay in replying, but I've been pretty busy lately. There's some training on my profile:
