Very interesting. Any view of linking to LinkedIn?
LauraM64 Premium Follow Me
Good point! I just tried doing that on LinkedIn and it would not accept the HRL.
I installed a social plugin and now when I want to share something, I just click and the information is shared...with Linkedin.

I don't have my website set up yet. Don't I have to do that before I can share content and get credit for it?
It is not required that you have your site up and running to share the information from inside WA.
Eventually, your website will help people to understand how they can benefit from WA. If you have networks on Facebook, twitter and Google+, these can be shared to before your site is operational if you like.

hi Pennifer1, as far as I know that is correct. You must have your website up and going before you can start sharing content. Follow carefully the steps that Kyle laid out for you in order to set up your website properly. Hope this helps!

Thanks! I'm trying to work my way through the training and absorb as much as I can!

Yes, but you can also share the content you write here on WA with other members. Ideally you'd want to have your initial website setup first.
Pennifer1 Follow Me
OK, so I feel like I'm jumping all over here. I started with the Get Started course, decided to go WA Affiliate for now til I find the right niche, so skipped to the Affiliate Bootcamp and began working through there. Now am being instructed to share three ways, but haven't had the website training yet. I'm a little confused. Did I just miss it? I really want to get set up, but was really lost trying to do it earlier, and thought I must have skipped over some training, so tried to retrace my steps, so to speak. Please clarify exactly where I find that training so I can get this ship off the ground. I have some lofty goals, and I need to get them started with viable action! By the way, Vitaliy, I want to thank you again for leading me to this opportunity. I figured out about 2:00am this morning that the residuals on my first two referrals alone would basically cover the cost of my Premium membership (which would eliminate my husband's objections to my signing up), and everything from there on out is gravy! (Of course, it would take four if I sign them up while I'm still just a Starter member.) All the more reason to get this business in a viable state! By the way, do you know if my first referrals as a Starter member would count toward the total 300 needed to qualify for Vegas?
VitaliyG Premium Ambassador Follow Me
Hi Penny, let me answer those questions starting from the last one: Your referrals only count towards the vegas incentive, if they upgrade from starter to premium.

As for your questions regarding where to go, I believe you may have skipped a few lessons.

Here is the main bootcamp page: If you feel lost, you can always go back to this page and continue where you last left of.

Bootcamp and the get started course are basically the same thing. Bootcamp promotes WA in the make money online niche and the get started course helps you promote your own niche choice. The training is pretty much the same.
Pennifer1 Follow Me
Thanks, Vitaliy. I actually did that and just finished the training on building the website, so I'm back to trying it. I was just overthinking it!
VitaliyG Premium Ambassador Follow Me
Happens to all of us from time to time :) Glad to see you're back on track!
Pennifer1 Follow Me
Woohoo! It's officially there! Now to learn how to set it all up pretty! I suspect that's in the next training module, but I have to post a link to three media now, and I only have facebook, a brand new Twitter acct which I just set up today, and an old LinkedIn acct that I can't remember my password for. But that challenge will have to wait for tomorrow! I don't want to be so brain-fried I can't absorb the awesome trainings! By the way, I did do a draft article on my webpage that I would love if you would check out and give me feedback. I was planning to give you a shout-out and link to one of your blogs, so maybe you could let me know which might be most appropriate for the article? My website is worksmartnothard. Thanks again, Vitaliy! And goodnight!

Its better if you take you affiliate link and manually paste it on your wall than clicking on the like button
CDingler Premium Follow Me
I've shared to Facebook, Twitter, Google & LinkedIn. Moving forward!

This is great not only can you share your own content, you can share someone Else's content. I've already shared one of Kyle's post to Facebook.
wello Premium Follow Me
I've already started sharing WA in my social networking!
keithweaver Premium Follow Me
I bet you can get at least 60 sign ups a year sharing Wealthy Affiliate posts on Facebook.

Yes, Maybe even more!

It`s neat that even if you are not on all the time you have a life time of credits from the cookies.

I appreciate how Wealthy Affiliate allows us to get the message out to the public. The one question I have is in regards to the cookies. If someone has clicked on another person's link and didn't join, but now clicks on my link and does join, how does the cookie situation work? Does my cookie replace the other person's so that I get credit?
autumn56 Premium Top 100 Follow Me
i believe your cookie will replace theirs. It should go to whichever affiliate id was LAST clicked when the person joins.
keithweaver Premium Follow Me
Yes, if the visitor clicks on your link, it will replace all cookies--so yes, you will get the credit. Absolutely!
Pennifer1 Follow Me
Good question, Joseph! This is something I'd like to know as well!
keithweaver Premium Follow Me
Hi Penny,

I viewed the video again for this question and heard Kyle say that the cookies are yours unless the Visitor/User deletes their cookies or changes over to another computer altogether.

And also, If the Visitor/User clicks on your Wealthy Affiliate link, the Visitor/User's browser will replace all cookies and It will record all cookies from your Affiliate Link--and so, the commission will be yours.

Watch the Video again and see if you get the same message.

Just added a short post on something I will be trying over the next few days. I would love some feedback and a comment or 3.

*Really* like this. It's very apparent that the back end of WA has had a lot of thought and work put into it. Hoping to put it to work soon!
