What if I told you that you could earn a full-time income simply by sharing awesome training and blog content...would you be interested.

Well this is a reality with the Sharing feature within Wealthy Affiliate. Although we have never been an advocate of “click button systems” the new sharing component of Wealthy Affiliate is really as simple as that.

Find something you want to share, click a button to share it via one of your favorite social networks or email...or grab your link and post it wherever you like. When you share something from the Wealthy Affiliate community using the share buttons, your affiliate link is automatically passed through and you will get credit for any referral that signs up.

This is going to allow you to earn income while you are learning here at Wealthy Affiliate.

Benefits of the Sharing Model:


(1) Strong Potential to Earn Money Every Time You Share
(2) Improve Credibility as you Will Appear as a Source
(3) Increase Following as Every Sign-up Becomes A Follower
(4) Get Massive Affiliate Reach (Viral Potential)
(5) Exclusive to Members of Wealthy Affiliate ONLY

Within this training tutorial I am going to walk you through the unbelievable potential of the share model and show you how you can easily implement it within your day to day schedule to earn a consistent stream of income.

Before we get into the details, here is the infographic walkthrough outlining how the Share Model works.

If anyone is confused by this all you need to do is click on the "Affiliate" Button just below the title of the post (right-hand side) and use that link (which contains your affiliate code). Copy the link and past it to whatever social media channel you choose.

Well, I have read something like this before and have tried to share but did not see any share button.
If this problem is solved everyone will be benefiting from this. I have made a request for a long time now concerning this but nothing has been done yet. So we wait, as things gets improved we hope that will too. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

Is it only me, or is it with everyone? I cannot see any tweet button on the courses nor on my written posts to share it with Twitter.

Or should I copy paste the affiliate link from that page?

"You can also share content via Twitter with the click of a button. Within each page you will see a Tweet button (as shown below)."

This is old training and in the old days there used be a button for various things.

But even the Facebook Share Like button has been removed.

The only thing you can do now is use the email share and/or the Affiliate Link to post in Social Media.

Let me know if you have any further questions.

Why would you think that? Sharing on Google + is a must in my book.

My posts on Google+ gets ranked faster and higher in Google than they do by themselves.

You have many options to share on Facebook. Your profile, pages, and within groups just to name a few

Instagram is getting quit popular with marketers.

you share by doing a couple things. First, click where it says affiliate. Then put the link in your post or page. Share the post or page with the link.

Or you make a blog about a WA subject write about it screen shot whatever you want to say about it and attach to an image for it.

If you open the envelope you can send it as an email.

This seems like an excellent way to get the world out about WA while your just getting started! Does anyone have suggestions about which pages have been most successful to share for them? I have taken action from the instructions within this tutorial, and have shared links on a new twitter account I created, with about 20-50 unique clicks showing each day I have sent out tweets with links back to WA, but have not gotten any referrals from the traffic. On the plus side I seem to get a few new followers every time I post articles/tutorials from WA, so if you are trying to figure out ways to grow followers on twitter, this seems to work!

Hi Justine, this is a known problem with the sharing-buttons to facebook, and it's all facebook's fault. FB have an app where you can "fetch" the image you want to show when share, but this have to be done when you place the pic in your post. Too much to explain here, but you can find all about it under facebook-help om FB.

What I do, is to copy the pic I want to a folder on my desktop, then click "add photo" on your status, paste the photo, write your message on top and place the link there too. Then post it.

I have the same fear of Twitter, and also Social Media generally; I have been avoiding that scene generally, but with my interests, I knew the time would come when I would have to embrace it, and I will.

And a storm it will be; I have finally signed up for Twitter in as subdued a way as possible, and there are already numerous feeds and "spiels" from this one foray. Trying to ignore it and just concentrate on getting my website "Social Media ready" to deal with the said storm. I have been asking myself just how much do we need it, although apparently, we really do.:)

You certainly have been more active than I have, and will have a head start if your accounts are set up. One thing I have found is that the unknown is usually far less difficult or incomprehensible as we might think before we plunge in - well, it should all come clear sooner or later! In the meantime, it seems like you are making great progress, Chris.
I still have a huge way to go, but decided procrastinating is not going to get me anywhere, and I am here on a learning adventure. Wishing you every success, too.

your affiliate link is synced to every single training, lesson, post, etc. here on WA. It's at the very top of the page, the white icon that says, "affiliate."

Click on that and you can access your unique affiliate link to share anywhere you want. You don't have to connect this to FB or FB to this.
Reply
dpapa Premium
on the left of this menu, there is the WA affiliate program. There you can find your affiliate links which you will be sharing. When you create a blog in here, you can share the blog with everyone, and everyone can come and see....don't worry about you receiving your commission. You will receive your commissions no matter what. There is a special algorithm in this system where it remembers whoever joined your link the first time. So if they don't choose to join the time you sent them to the site, another time when they finally decide to join, you'd still get the credit. Even if they went elsewhere...They opened up your link first and that's what counts I hope this is clear?

I ahve heard of at least one other affiliate who was banned from G +. No such issues with Facebook or Twitter.

Don't know if anyone was able to get to you on this...

The share button will be on the pages you want to share To facebook, they will not be On facebook.

You will see the F Like in the upper banner. Also on blog pages that are integrated with facebook will have the same F Like, and some will have the Share button.

One will show to facebook that you 'Like' this post (or what ever post you 'like'ed to. The other will share with your facebook the Title, a short description, a pic and a link so they can click on it and view it themselves.

The banner I am talking about is the one directly under the search bar that says...
Classrooms / Multiple Classroms / Sharing Model Reveal - Earn While You F Like

You can also use the link provided from the Affiliate button and manually share the content you wish on your preferred social sites. Doing it this way will allow you the freedom to customize the post more.

I am sure that would be fine. You could also write about how with WA you managed to build your website at minimal cost and the challenges along the way - make it part of your story. Some people spend $$$ to get a very basic website built for them, and continually spend more when they want it altered again.

click on the affiliate link button right below the title and you will get 2 links both of them will have your affiliate link id number on it. The first one is a shortened version and the second full length you can use either one on facebook but use the shortened on ones that do not allow the longer ones like Twitter.

Kyle, Is there statistics on what "shared content" has created the best results.

I normally just share something I like or think others may like.

I need clarity on something. I realize that if you have a blog that you can share links to content here at WA via the sharing model. It is easy to find great things here and blog about what you learned or your take on it and share the link to the content in question here at WA. I can share from my outside blog to things here at WA.

My question with the sharing model is can that be done here on the WA blog?

Like for instance, I read a blog post from someone or a discussion or a training and I have my own thoughts or take on it or whatever, can the sharing be done right here at WA on a blog post or is that too much interlinking within WA.

I have not utilized the blog feature here at WA. I have only ever blogged on my own self-hosted Wordpress sites, but after reading Carson's blog post today, I decided that I have a great blogging tool right here at WA that I have overlooked.

I like to blog about various topics, but I have been told that it is okay to blog about business, personal, current events, etc. provided you are not linking to affiliate products, etc. but I wanted to be sure whether sharing WA links from a WA blog post is okay. If not, I will just do it from my own blog.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Well if you share here at WA, people are already members so there is no way to earn credit. It is beneficial for your member rank to contribute to conversations here at WA and to create blogs and discussions (as these get ranked and you get credit for them), but to share WA content within WA has no benefit unless you are helping someone out with a link to a resource or a post.
Reply
WriterLynn Premium
That is what I thought. I think that I got confused because of Carson's blog post "Top of Google with Wealthy Affiliate!" because that post talks about people outside of WA finding our WA blog posts, etc. on Google. So, I wasn't even thinking anymore about current WA members seeing my blog posts, even though they would too.

---Yeah, I think that I will just use the sharing model aspect when blogging from my blog outside of WA. I can utilize the WA blog here for other types of blogging that I want to do. I like to blog about a lot of topics.

Yeah,anything related to your business and your activities online, blog about here and anything that is related to another niche, put on either your website or leverage an authoring site like StreetArticles.

There isn't a button here for Linked in. You can grab your Affiliate Link directly and share it on linkedin if you want. Click the Affiliate Link button on any page within WA and that will provide you with your unique affiliate link.

So.... do I create a website for this? Or do I just share this link everywhere? for example, if I made wealthy affiliates my niche, I will make articles and bookmarks and engage on social networking, etc. I would simply put THIS link rather than a link to my website? Because if I have a niche of "canoes", I'm building and entire website about "canoes" AND creating articles, etc with the back link to my website.

But I don't need a website to use wealthy affiliates as my niche? Just this link?
Reply
Kyle Premium
You can share these links wherever you like, whether it is on your website or social networks...wherever you can post a link you can share these links and get credit for them if someone ends up joining as a result.

Hi everyone. I have a question or two. #1. What is Google+, and #2. You can't use this share method unless you are a premium member? Thank you for answering my questions in advance.

Google+ is a social network, like Facebook. You can use the share as a Starter member if you want as well and earn commissions (although Premium members earn double the commissions as starter members). Hope this helps!

Kyle, I have this idea in mind. Can I be permitted to turn some of these tutorials here in WA in to pdf and then share in document sharing website. What I intend to do is to create a table of content, then share a quarter of the what was listed in the table of content. then include my affilate link to direct them to WA. of course I would write the name of the author or simple from Wealthy Affiliate. Can I be permitted to do this.
Reply
Kyle Premium
NO! We do not allow content from here to be copied and reproduced. This is copyright infringement. That is the whole reason that we created the share system so that you could SHARE content here at WA through your affiliate links and earn revenue. I suggest you do this, but don't create PDF's from the content here. That is not allowed.

Share model infographic: Ok, Kyle this is where I needed the clarity I asked over at WA walkthrough. Now I understand the credit and share model. And sorry to insist, my error was that I thought this worked like a pyramid, now I don´t think that but for the sake of clarity and if someone familiar with pyramidal systems asks: Let´s say I invited my friend Mary and she becomes a starter member, I get my credit. Then Mary invites Patty who signs under Mary´s affiliate link. Mary gets her credit from Patty and I don´t get a thing from Patty. I oversimplified it but I´ll be explaining this in spanish and want to make sure I pass the info correctly.. Always grateful to you for taking the time.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Pyramids are illegal. We are not a pyramid lol. You would not get credit for Patty, that is an MLM and they are highly unethical and often times illegal.

You get credit for all the people you invite, it has nothing to do with the people that they go on and invite.

hello kyle,
I do have a few questions.
1. Whenever i add a new content as a blog and it is viewed by the existing members of the WA community, will i get revenue by their clicks on my blog?
2. Secondly, once the existing members of the WA community ,views and shares my blogs with non-members and they in turn register as members, apart from those members who get revenue from new joiners will i also benefit in terms of revenue from their joining as a free member or premium member?
Reply
Kyle Premium
1. You will not get revenue if people here click on your blog. If you provide valuable information, you will obtain a bigger following here within the community. Absolutely NO promotions are allowed within content you create here at WA though.

2. You will benefit by getting an automatic follower for anyone that joins as a result of your content. Your content will also get indexed in search engines, and when it does, you get 100% for all referrals that this generates.

Hope this clarifies.

Hello Kyle,
I have a question.
Where can I find Turning Your Content Sharing On/Off?
Is it under Main menu or a special tab?
It must be easy, but I cannot find it.
Reply
Goldenlady Premium
Marcelira,
If you are trying to turn off content you've already posted, you will need to select the green Action button then the edit button on that content's page. Scroll to the bottom of the content and you'll see the option to turn off sharing.

If you are creating a new blog entry, you will see the option to share at the bottom of the blog's content. Sharing is "on" by default, but you can choose to turn it off by clicking on the bright green Sharing On box. A drop-down option to turn it off will be visible. Click on that, and a bright red box saying "Sharing Off" will appear.

A couple questions that I would love anyone to answer, thanks guys.

Yes, when you share using the buttons within any blog post or training it will pass through your affiliate link and you will get credit if anyone signs up through that link. Also if they "reshare" the page you will get credit for that as well...it could become quite viral.

You can edit your tweets if you like (just make sure your leave the link in there). ;)

You don't need a privacy page, but sometimes they are good to have.

In terms of linking to the content here at WA, don't copy the content, rather point people to this content from your site. Privacy policies are not mandatory, however Google does look for them and it can be a good thing to have on your site as they are pretty standard.

hi, either @Carson or @kyle . I had someone join through my shared link a couple of days ago. It says one person joind through this, andI have one invite.

Hi "WErRush":
From what I understand, every person that signs up for the "Free 10 trial" via your shared link is equivalent to $1 CREDIT. This does not get paid into your bank account until one person actually becomes a paid member of Wealthy Affiliate.

You can just look at the top of any WA page and you'll see "Invited," "Followers" and "Rank." Whatever number you see in the "Invited" section is equivalent to dollars in credit.

We have to wait for Kyle's/ Carson's confirmation on this.

Also what would be helpful is knowing where these "conversion traffic" is coming from. I know if you go to "Share Wealthy Affiliate" section (in the left margin) there is a "View Sales and Clicks" button on the right side. This takes you to a place where you can view "Reports">"Raw Clicks" and that shows you referring URLs and Tracking IDs (if you are adding tracking IDs ---aka 'custom variable' --- to the long Permalink you are sharing). However, I do not know which one of those referring URLs converted into a free signup, or better yet, into a PAID member.

Anyone knows how we can track conversions with this "Sharing Business Model?"

Thanks,
Charlie
Reply
Kyle Premium
This $1 credit will get put into your affiliate account. This logic will be added very soon, but you can use your "invited" tally as this will be the total number of referrals that you have. This person does not have to join to become a full member in order for you to get credit.

Also, you will get any referrals if this person does decide to join as a premium member here at WA!
Reply

Yes, I understand we get credited as soon as they sign up for the free trial. But, that does not turn into cash (as in a paid commission) until one of our referrals actually becomes a paid member ... is that correct?

You can add data variables to the referrals that you perform. There is no specific data associated without having this, but I can tell you that the highest converting post right now is the "Invite to Become a Remarkable Entrepreneur" blog post. Search for it within the search tab above.

Sharing links to people's info is not the same as copying content. It's just sharing links. It's how the whole internet functions. It benefits the person when you share links to their information.

I guess that I didn't really understand why you are hesitant to share links. I never said that you personally mentioned copying content.

It was the only example that I could think of that might make someone hesitant or uneasy about the sharing program. Some people might misunderstand what is being shared exactly and how it is shared.

Now I see that some people might not want their content shared through an Affiliate link, an income producing link. If that is the case, then I suppose anyone who is uncomfortable with that aspect of it will will turn off sharing on their stuff.

Since I know for sure that Kyle and Carson want their personal blogs and training shared, I will probably stick with sharing only their stuff for now.

I'm so freakin' excited about this!

Someone mentioned in another post that they were hesitant to share other people's stuff that they worked so hard on, but that is what the world of blogging is all about.

I read someone's blog post about a certain topic and then instead of merely leaving a comment on their site, I jump on my Wordpress blog and give my 2 cents about the post and then include a link back to the post in question. The person ends up getting a backlink and more visits to their blog and I get a pingback to my site from theirs. As long as I'm not stealing or copying content this is the normal way of the web. Sharing. Bloggers do this everyday anyway.

This is the same concept really, except there is a chance to earn financially as well. No blog owner is going to pay referral fees for sharing their stuff (unless it is an affiliate program) Before WA was closed to non-members and so WA members could not link back to the content here like they could another website or blog post.

WA sharing sort of blends the normal sharing of content with Affiliate marketing, but in a subtle way. Information sharing rather than selling.

Kyle, I like to use Pinterest. One of the tips I've read (don't remember exactly where) is that along with having the link back automatically embedded when you make a pin, you can also put the web address in the description box (after your relative description of course) somewhat of a visual trigger to the onlooker I suppose. Anyway, I pinned ceugenes post about his new house, (cause it has good pictures) and sure enough if you click on my pin and follow it through it brings you to his post. (that's cool) but I also put my shortlink (permalink) in the description and when I tested it, it was block with a message from Pinterest that it might be a spammy link. I immediately edited it out. Do you think it's because it's a shortlink or would you advise to not put the web address in the description at all. Want to get your POV in case anyone else has tried something similar but maybe didn't test the link. I don't want to be a spam dog. Thanks.

Update... While looking at my pin after making my last comment (see above) I just realized something else. I have always just clicked on through the image of pins to get to the original source. However, I just noticed that when you click on a pin and it takes you to a larger version of the pin, at the top of the image, under the pinners name it will say something to the effect of (in this particular pin) Pinned 32 minutes ago from my.wealthyaffiliate.com and that link worked just fine. Just a little FYI, that I just learned FWIW.

Story sounds familiar; most worthy words anythings worth while takes time. This takes time, but I have never seen such a large volume of quality information. 30day training will give you an excellent start of understand what internet marketing is.

The live chat is a great place to ask questions this is found right up corner in the dashboard module. Best of luck.

Hi guys, I've had WealthyAffiliate bookmarked in my browser for over a year now, but have failed to sign up due to lack of time! Now that is not an issue, I'm motivated and excited to learn as many concepts and viewpoints on marketing as I can. Thanks for this opportunity, and I look forward to learning!

Awesome stuff! Great to have you here and I definitely look forward to working with you. Glad that you have made the decision to join and do let me know if you need any help along the way. The new "sharing" component is going to be a good way for you to get others interested and benefit financially from as well, so let me know if you have any questions about this as well.

Hey "Chripper":

Welcome! We've all been there where we wanted to gen in but was afraid of investing money before seeing any ROI. What's ironic is that people (myself included) are willing to pay $10,000/yr for traditional education but are gun shy to pay $600/yr to learn how to create an online business that is basically recession proof. In fact, problems are money making opportunities for online marketers.

Lucky you (or any newbie here), there is this SIMPLE "Sharing" business model that anyone can run with. We never had this a few years ago. I hope you don't give up on your dream of making a living online.

Think of it this way. You could go out and invest tens of thousands in a brick and mortar business and deal with all the other obstacles that go along with it. Or, you can work on a business here for $50/mo "rent," with support from tutorials and real people, whenever it its convenient for you. That sounds a lot more doable for the ordinary person, yes? Now go learn and share something:)

@Chripper - Welcome to WA! I look forward to getting to know you helping with your online business. You really do have it ALL at your fingertips. Glad that you've had us in the back of your mind for over a year...time to get down to business :)

@SquidooSlfMstr - Couldn't have said it better myself. People (myself included) line up at Offline Universities with checks in hand ready to pay tens of thousands of dollars for an education. In the online world, WA is as close as it gets to an offline degree, but you're getting much more. Offline universities could NOT teach online business. They cannot stay current enough. WA is the ONLY place you can get a real education in online business, and for a fraction of the cost of offline institutions. Well said.

The reason most members I've talked to over the years take time deciding to join WA is because of all the scams and misleading products out there. With our new sharing capabilities we can now give people a glimpse of the immense value inside the exclusive WA members area. I hope this will help many people find their online business "Home" in WA.

Awesome training Kyle, thank you so much. This is definitely a golden opportunity to be pursued. Thanks K&C to you both. The sample schedule is a very nice bonus, one question, could you elaborate on "Share your email link to this post in at least 5 places"
for some reason I don't quite understand that one, I may be overthinking it though.

I have always been amazed at the volume and quality of information here at WA. Sharing will only enable more to benefit from the knowledge. People are able to create their own opinions from information viewed - true seller. Another very welcomed change.

sounds like a great idea, i know i'm gonna take advantage of the sharing :)

(off topic) been a long time since being logged on here and wondering...what happened to the WA blog theme setup that was available way back? and the report and emails to give away from blog also?

site looks alot nicer now too :)

Blog theme set-up? If you are referring to the website builder, you can find it under Build Websites within WA. We removed the "Blog & Funnel" system because it was highly outdated and was essentially duplicate content which goes against all of Google's ranking algos. Much better off to create your own content, from your own perspective and own voice.

Glad you like the new look and hopefully we will see more of you inside the new WA! :)
