Since I'm a newbie, by virtue of the fact that this is the very beginning of the time that I can actually write any training material, being a premium member for three months, I thought I would compile some things that I would've liked to know when I first got started. Whether or not this is helpful to you, please make some comment below. When you do, you will be blessed.

James you could expand your ask questions rule to include, 'when you ask questions make sure you word the question so people know what you need. Don't just say 'I need help'. After all everyone is busy and a non-specific question often will not get responses!

Otherwise this is great for 'tyros'.

It was fun to read your Rules! Thanks for it. Most of your suggestions I was already doing. Writing a blogpost every day seems to me a little difficult, but I truly understand why I should do it......
Reply
JamesMichel Premium
You're welcome. I'm so glad these rules correlate with your experience. Another advantage, that I have found with daily blogging, is that it encourages me to integrate the learnings of the day into some framework of understanding.
I'll share a secret:
I have many more draft blogs sitting in my blog generator, than I have published.
Reply
Heidi56 Premium
Well, me too. But after a time I forget that I have them, or the topic is not interesting for me any more to publish it in that moment where I might be gone in some other directions

It's worth reviewing one from time to time. Even the ones in the bullpen, sometimes come around again. I've even gone back and revised one or two of my published blogs, based on additional ideas and information. I love the flexibility in Wealthy Affiliate!

Ultimateless Premium
Just one quick comment James, his is not strictly true: if you do not pay your membership fee, after you become a premium member, you risk losing all the work that you have put into the website and into your own websites.

You won't have access to your website hosted here but as long as you are paying your yearly $13.99 your website remains intact and you can still move it to another hosting site...you don't lose your work.

Very good advice. I do have a question,what does moving up in the ranks do for us?
Reply
JamesMichel Premium
Your question is a good one! The naysayers will tell you it does nothing for us. However if you read RickBell57's entry on this page 2 or three comments down, you will see A much more comprehensive and understandable relationship between what good we do and what good is done for us.

JamesMichel Premium
That's exactly the kind of feedback I wanted to hear. Precisely my intentions, you have been so sweet to clearly state them in such a warm and positive way. Thank you for the motivation that gives me to carry on.
Reply
RickBell57 Premium
I think you've made some sense here. Helpful for newbies for sure.

You've sure understood the marketing part. Helping others is where we earn our keep. Within or without WA. You've put up information without asking anything in return. A + Value.

We must all become highly skilled at marketing if we wish to succeed. But not just here. Even though it is fun to interact starting out...Within the community. We fully need to set high intentions on building a real business where we earn income, outside of the safe and secure shelter here at WA.

I worked 8 hour days here on the WA site trying to improve my rank. Didn't know at the time that it was more of a waste of time for me. As I needed to earn money badly. I even eventually became a level 6. Yet I was not making any money. I would spend all my time here helping others and for that I got very little. Sure I may have learned a few things and a few things not to do. :)

Great information for newcomers for sure. Just let them also know in your next Rendgade Rules that the sooner they are able to branch out to promoting themselves away from WA, the sooner they will earn their income.

As good as it is to practice marketing here. I believe my learning came from following those that were so much more advanced. I actually was steered wrong on a few occasions within the community here. But that stuff happens everywhere. Lessons are what we are here to learn in the first place.

And I like yours.
Reply
JamesMichel Premium
Rick, that high praises also clearly well spoken. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I had been told that ranking in WA has little bearing on income, but you have clearly tied them together very effectively at a level beyond the thinking of the person who told me that about the ranking. I have a few more things to tie together to get money flowing to meet but I felt obliged to do something of this nature.
And you certainly are correct the lessons are there just waiting for the students.
