When I first started at Wealthy Affiliate I decide to view and learn what the Top 200 were doing and how they achieved Top 200 status.

I started at the very top with Kyle & Carson - Owners and as I soon found out very active Ambassadors & Friends in the Wealthy Affiliate Community.

View Kyle & Carson's profiles here on Wealthy Affiliate - their websites, blogs, pictures and how they conduct themselves and share with this great community that they built.

It's very much like you said in your blog, Tony. Even if this was written in September of 2015, it still has very much value today.

When I first started,.back in January of 2016, I did exactly what you're saying here (without reading your training) and it did help me a lot in my online journey.

I strongly recommend everyone to follow what's being said here!

Thanks for bringing this training back to the surface!

Awesome Denis!

You are welcome my Friend and thank you for your testimonial that you also used the mentioned method to help you with your online journey here at WA.

Also thank you for seeing the value today as much as it was back in 2015 Denis.

Talk with you soon my Friend.

I hate to bother you two again with this issue. Recently I was trying to transfer my domain to WA, I paid the $13.99 renweal for a year because the system here at WA required it. The transfer didn't go through and I was refunded. Thinking that is what a network error I tried again, when it didn't go through I called GoDaddy and was informed that new domains cannot transfer for 60 days. Now I just want to move on to my next niche website since I cannot use the other idea but I technically paid $13.99 for a 1 year domain renewal for no domain. The WA system does not keep track of latest transaction so I cannot apply my latest payment to anything. I would love to apply my $13.99 to something since I just paid it. VitaliyG said to go to site Rubix, pick a domain, and build a site. Okay I get that, but I have to pay for a domain, that's fine but I just paid $13.99 and cannot apply to anything so what do I do? Thanks.

Hi Ryin,

You would need to private message Kyle and/or Carson my Friend.

They wouldn't get your message from this post.

Just click on the blue box at the top right that says Rank and You will see Kyle and Carson at #1 and #2 then click on their picture and private message them.

Let me know if this helps Ryin,

Tony

It's really quite easy. Just put in some hard work now so you can work less later. But don't take that to mean you stop working altogether. Even passive income requires maintenance and due diligence.

I just also stumbled onto this site researching another site. This one has caught my attention. Can someone be able to kindly tell me what the monthly fee is when you join premium a month?
Reply
tmaltz Premium
Hi Arlene,

The first month is discounted to $19/mo, then after that it's $49/mo (currently 47 but their switching to 49 very soon, not sure exactly on the date).

I pay yearly and have been here for over 2 years, I don't plan on ever leaving for so many reasons.

But for that, I pay 359/year or less than $30/mo. It's the best and least expensive online education you'll ever find and the best decision I ever made.

If you have any other questions, just let me know.

Thanks,
Todd

I just stumbled across this blog and Wow. These are the things I did. I wanted to align myself with the successful. Then out of no where...today I realized I had hit Rank 185. I wasn't trying to get to the Top 200. I just wanted to help people and help myself. Win, win.

Tony, it's members like you that have kept me focused on my goals and I can't thank you enough. Thank you for sharing this.

Peace, and make it a great day.
Sheila.

It's all well and good to be ranked high on WA, but that doesn't mean you're having success in your online business. It simply means you are active on the WA website. Don't get me wrong, that's a good thing, but it has nothing to do with how successful your business is or whether you're making any money.

I am not sure if there is 1 to 1 coaching available but maybe someone else in the the community knows.

There is a Need help search block in the top of Wealthy Affiliate.

I will ask that question for all of us now Marina,

Great post again my friend, I agree that looking at the Top 200 when joining is a great tip to see what you should be doing. I look at all posts in WA (I am on here all day lol) but I sometimes single out blogs etc from people in the Top 200 who are blogging about how to improve yourself. I still need to go through everyone's websites like you suggested before.

Kush, Sami, and Rog are doing well so congrats to them and I hope the keep helping others because that's what makes this community #1.
