Are you an ambassador within the Wealthy Affiliate community? You can find out within the Wealthy Affiliate ranking page:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/rank

Ambassadorship is an internally ranking system within Wealthy Affiliate where members can see where they rank. The more your help, create, and the more active you are, the higher your rank will be within the community.

Within the following training I will walk you through Ambassadorship, how to check and understand your ranks within Wealthy Affiliate, and the benefits of being an ambassador. There are many benefits to being active and helpful within the community and there are going to be ongoing incentives as the Ambassador program continues to evolve.

If you have any questions about Ambassadorship, please leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.

Hey Kyle, just want to add some input for WA. I saw many great training video taken from WA dashboard in the past and it shows different from current look. I know the system has been update, so that will be better if some of old training video would be update into the latest version of WA dashboard. And i believe our new member will be easy to learn while watching your walk-through update WA video.Thats it, All the best Kyle

Great video showing how we can check rankings and achieve ranks. The community here is very cool. Everyone is super helpful.

Question I have, I heard a lot in the video that there are some great incentives for becoming an Ambassador. Is there anywhere we can go to see what those incentives are? Are those incentives defined?

I find it much easier to push towards a goal and/or incentive if I actually know what they are.

Thanks in advance for the help.

i think it was an idea they had, there is nothing as an incentive- bar a shield next to your name, and the knowledge that you are a helpful member of the community.
so make sure you spend enough time on your site creating content and balance that with helping and training.
good luck Daron

Well this clears everything up! This has been one of the few things on my mind since I'v been here, but now I understand how the ranking works. This ambassadorship gives me incentive to keep pushing and working hard here. I've definitely received a lot of help from some of the seasoned members here at WA and hope to pass on what I've learned to others.

The ambassador program sounds awesome. I will be setting goals on a regular basis to make it to the top. I would love to be an ambassador here.

It give you just one more thing you can strive for during your race to a successful online business. It is nice to have all the wonderful things that WA has all right here in one spot.

The ambassador program will encourage its members to help one another to reach their goals. I love love this forward way of thinking.

I like the idea about being active in the community by helping others in various ways. I want to get active in my business community. The experience here interacting with others and building a brand is great training for my future goals.

Why is the training not considered in the ranking system? It is by making progress in the training that one gets the knowledge and experience to help others. Hypothetically speaking is it possible to get a high rank if one does all the activities that boost ranking while neglecting ones progress in the training? I'm probably missing something here so I would much appreciate any clarification.

I am not sure that the training you are following is measurable on a personal level. Anybody can just click the training complete button, but it does not say what each individual really did. However, part of the ranking system is training you provide to the community.

Good video. I only ask how old is it. I don't mean to sound negative. You said we need to be credible and work hard, which most do. I 'm just thinking with old video may give someone the impress of not a lot of progress has been made. In turn, you kind of lose credibility? Just my thoughts.

The video does seem to be really outdated. I have to agree with you on that one. I do believe the principal behind the ambassador program is a great one though, as it encourages users to help one another to reach rankings in the system.

This is probably one of the things that has made WA so great and what it is today.

The training on why we we should all do activities to achieve higher rankings within WA was very helpful. I can see the benefits. Essentially, we play it forward by discussing our goals, troubles, and successes. Having a system that rewards this activity inherently encourages activity. I get so much help from people posting questions and responses, getting feedback, and real comments on my page. In order for this activity to remain high, I will continue to do my part to engage with the WA network. This is such a great place to be guys!

For sure, you are more than capable of achieving the top 1,000, or much lower. It comes down to the interaction here within the community, but be natural and remember not to forget about focusing on the build out of your actual business.

It can take less time then that. It take a lot of work and dedication to become ambassador. Responding to comments, welcoming newbies, helping in the live chat, answering questions, training, adding content.
Try to focus on building your website and adding content. Complete the training.
Hope this helps you.

Very interesting! I had not been paying attention to my rank at all, but when I looked I could see how much progress had been made without any focus.
I LOVE this community and how everyone is willing to help each other. I'm not actively seeking a higher rank, but I am seeking to improve myself, my site, and my contributions here so apparently the ranking will automatically follow.
Thanks!

I'm already hooked on WA. I came over after 3 negative experiences with other affiliate programs. Everyone kept recommending WA. Getting through training has taken much longer than I wanted. but that is due to my business schedule, not WA. The training is detailed and great. But the thing I like best is all of the support I get from other users. I am not very tech savvy...as some of you already know...so this community support is great. I learned a long time ago that the more you participate in anything, the greater the karma back to you. This is the perfect example. So, I am looking forward to participating in the Ambassador Program.

Ambassadorship is a tracking mechanism or your personal thermometer that internally measures your personal growth and your ranking within WA. You see, the more educated you become in the program and the more confident you become with yourself allows you to participate and help other new members as I and the community are doing for you.

Our helping you also helps us to rank as leaders in the WA community. This isn't a title that we give ourselves rather it is a title earned because we share in the passion of helping others thereby constituting the title "ambassador" of the WA community.

I am not sure exactly what perks are if you become an ambassador. But he does mention that you will see of them when you get to the 100 and it gets better in the top 12. Now he also does explain how being up there you as far as this is more people that you can reach. Kinda like a better support system and in the business part it could be more spread of you site.

Definitely! I think between the training and the community support are the top 2 things I like most about WA.

I suppose the "Curious George "in me wants to know the end before the beginning. Know what I'll get specifically at the finish line is always a nice nugget of motivation. Like a weight loss competition knowing I'll be ready for summertime at the end and get a new dress! Speaking of....I digress!

Thank you sharing, in pay if forward fashion I will share my light with the next young lad!

Ok. I have recently come back to this site and I'm glad I did. I understand some things better now and the idea that this site is helping people increase their skills is huge. That's what the world needs. So, achieving the ranks within this system is a solid goal because it means that you're supporting other people as you develop your own skills.

I hope to keep contributing here.

Great information Kyle but very invasive on what the perks are. The idea of helping others in the community is obviously a great idea. I just started a few days ago, 5 I believe and have learned so much. Luckily with me I don't have a full time job to tie me down so being immersed in this 8 or so hours a day is quite possible for me. On day one my ranking was 100,000 and currently I am at 42,839 in just 5 days.

Today I learned a few more things about the ranking and statistics page and ambassador program. Of course, I think most people want to achieve status in any thing they attempt. For me, this is definitely true. My goal would be to one day be in the top 100 and constantly achieve status as an ambassador. I think it helps if the company algorithms do not make major changes though, especially without forewarning the WA members. Not good for morale.

create a mmo site and create the training on there - it is built on your turf then not someone elses.
when you have been here longer than 3 months you may decide that you want to continue helping others with your site rather than here.
If necesary create a sub domain from a domain you have purchased.
Teaching others is a good way of cementing in the knowledge you have learnt.

That was in an informational video concerning how ranking actually works as well as how to become a WA Ambassador.

Ranking is categorized into three groups, that is, Helper, Creator, and Activity. Each category you partake in will improve your ranking; althhough, overall ranking consists of combination of all three categories.

You can verify your ranking in three locations: the top of yourb WA home page, to the far right of the Search window, next to your profile picture; on your profile page; and within the Wealthy Affiliate Ranking page.

Additionally, you can view your activity for each ranking category within the WA ranking page, which shows you statistical data regarding your participation linked to each category.

Becoming a top WA Ambassador means striving for rankings of 12 and above, which comes with perks but we don't know what that entails. However, I am sure they are great. Aspiring to be ranked in the top 100 is great as well.

I think I'm going to set a goal to strive for ranking in the top 100 and perhaps it will lead me further to becoming a WA Ambassador! That would be awesome. We shall see.

Nice video Kyle.

Hi Kyle,

Just finished viewing your videos created about Ambassadorship.It is clear,straight forward and informative.

2 questions came into my mind.

In what ways do the contribution from the Ambassadors and highly ranked WA members benefit the WA online biz training platform?

Will it also benefit the WA members online biz as well?

Feel free to discuss and share your thoughts.

Thanks

Warm regards,

Thank You Kyle for the straight forward explanation of this valuable Goal!!!

I have personally seen my rankings climb faster than I ever thought possible just doing the Level 1 and half of Level 2 - however, I have also seen my rankings just fall 10 places due to my inactivity while on a Family vacation!!!

I fully expected to keep the pace up while on vacation, but my laptop crashed and I actually got so mad I burned it on the beach in our campfire!!! Don't worry I disposed of the charred remains in accordance with our California Environmental Extremists wishes!!!

Might have been a good thing as I actually got some much needed sleep on the vacation whereas if my laptop was working I would have been working while the wife and kids slept - so as to not seem like I was ignoring them, but rather enjoying them on the vacation!!!

I now expect it to drop some more because two friends of mine are taking me Fly Fishing in the Trinity Alps Wilderness and there is zero internet service up there. So, another week off the radar starting Monday.....

But beware Top 100!!! I will be gunning to break into a double digit ranking when I return!!!

Thanks Again!!! GO WA!!!

This is totally a goal of mine!

Hi,
i can see my ranking moving up day by day, which I'm over the moon with, i would really love to become an ambassador, as so many of the people who are already ambassadors have helped me. but i'm not sure how I would create content or training as I don't feel experienced enough to do that.

Awesome Seamus, nice work. You don't necessarily have to have 10 years of experience to be an Ambassador.

The thing about the Internet is that you can learn a lot about the business in a short period of time, and you can also give back in terms of helping people learn how to use the platform. training, and WA in general as well (outside of marketing, website help, etc)

Very intriguing... I do not mind gaining credibility by doing my due diligence in not only assisting others with his or her issues at hand, but also being a true inspiration and motivator at tough times. There is nothing in this world that will easily be handed to you, however, when you work hard enough and put 100 percent in all you do...everything else will align and dividends will pay off in due respect. Again great job Kyle!

This all seems interesting, I don't see an issue with giving back to a community that helps you. Although it appears the program isn't financial, at least directly, I would imagine that as an ambassador, it would be easier to acquire followers and therefore using services for commenting on your sites blog posts and your google+ page would be more effective because your reach would be greater. It just seems to me like a classic example of "giver's gain". Count me in! See you at the top.

hi kyle - do you expect your ambassadors to start making their own rules for helping those they choose?
there is one who has put his feeling down plainly as to what HIS rule #1 is.
maybe now with the number of member here this system needs revisiting as it is too much for the top 25 to handle by themselves?
yes there are benefits but there is a lot of responsibility along with a massive amount of workload, as has been reported by a few of the ambassadors. maybe they need deputies to help with the workload?
i know i don't have the time for this amount of workload along with my own business. but i would like to help more.

Well said Peter but you're forgetting one thing.
The people who are Ambassadors help because they want to.
Its the kind of people they are.
I myself did not set out to attain the status of an Ambassador.
It just happened because I like to help people and have been doing it for as long as I can remember.
Granted there maybe one or two who only wanted the rank as a status believing it would improve their chances of making money. Of course this couldn't be further from the truth.
I have to add that a lot of people who were Ambassadors have given it up and intentionally dropped down the ranking because they wanted to concentrate on their own business.
I myself was one of these people earlier in the year.
My business was suffering from neglect.
Now I'm back on course and my rank has again climbed to the Ambassadorship level.
How long it stays that way will be determined by the amount of people who are helping more than I am or perhaps there are still members who believe it will make them money.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
We all like to be appreciated and Ambassadors are no exception.
Enjoy your Sunday.

Hi Phil, there is no such thing as a workload for ambassadors, you can choose whether you want or can help all by yourself.

Ambassadors are not obliged to help. Besides that, I have been an ambassador for over 2 years now, and I can not detect any benefits, but just the honourable tag next to the name. I have heard of an ambassador budget, but perhaps that budget is for people who are longer in this position.

I have read the post you are mentioning, and I am not working that way. People can always rely on my reply and I will always be there to assist them along the road. I agree with the blog writer, that some members are a bit demanding and rude for expecting help from ambassadors. But in such rare cases, I will cordially reply to them, and tell them that a bit of politeness is in its place. In the same reply I will explain to them what ambassadors are, and how they want to be treated if they have reached this status.

I hope this makes things a bit clearer to you Phil
Have a great day!

upon being reminded of the rules - the ambassador is not making up thier own rules - you are not allowed to just contact them for help you need to be invited.
the ambassadors do do a very good job and are kept extremely busy. and yes you need to remember that they are unpaid and doing it out of helpfulness.
phil

thank you loes, to me an ambassador is to be asked for help not demanded to help as you say.
i would hope that any communication to any one here is not a demand but a request for help or to give help.
but with this many members covering the whole globe different cultures come into play. what isn't a demand from one is a demand to others.
but the amout of help on here definitely goes up when you are on the list of 200, so i daren't think of the amount of mail you get when you get to the top 25.
thanks for restoring my faith in the top 25

That's a matter of opinion Phil. I invite very follower of me here, to contact me whenever they need help or are stuck. And it is quite strange, people need to be invited? That can not work. So when you are stuck on something, you start praying for an invitation of an ambassador?

according to the rules (#1) as i have just been reminded

No unsolicited messages to be sent through private messaging. This will lead to immediate removal of your ability to post anywhere within WA.

some people are taking this quite literally, if you don't have permission don't contact me!!

i agree with you last statement, how will this sytem work?

maybe an interpretation of the rules?
Reply
Loes Premium
Yes, I do think people use some rules very literally, and by doing so, they are giving others lots of trouble. Writers access revocations, I mean, as an ambassador, you do have the duty, to warn people for misbehaviour, and not to nail them down
Reply

i agree totally, break the rules and you need to be reminded of what they are. break them again and you need to be silenced for a while to think about it. break it again and the higher authority need to deal with you.
as you say they do not need nailing down, but helping
