I believe that WA has a wonderful idea of the community as a whole in Paying it Forward! So I created this training video so everyone can see how important it is when we all help one another out. It's not very long, but it has a lot of good and valid points.

I've included the Newbies as well. They don't realise that they have a lot to offer by learning how this process works right from the beginning. Because there is so much to learn when they first start out here at WA, they don't realize that when a member helps them out, they can Pay it Forward immediately! This is done by simply clicking on the helpers Like Button in their comment box and this helps them too.

Especially to the members who do a lot of training as well as knowledgeable Blogs, Posts and Articles that contributes to their education. They are Paying it forward and in doing so it comes full circle. Especially when the Newbies will need feedback on their progress as they move forward in their Quest.

It takes a lot of time and effort to prepare to help and no one minds, because this is a giving community who are happy to Pay It Forward, This is what we do here at Wealthy Affiliate. This in turn also helps them to move along faster in their training in Bootcamp as well. So after watching a training video or reading a helpful training, article, Blog or Post. Kindly leave some feedback, ask a question and click on the green Like Button. We all want to be successful too. I have prepared this with joy in my heart and it has only good intentions for all. Keep smiling everyone. Sharon:)

Just wanted to thank you,
I was going to do a post on this as well; but I am just going to elaborate on this a little:
What she is trying to say in terms that the newbies can understand if we all comment on one another's page or post or e comment on their business this looks good for you on the internet. REMEMBER Your Business Is Live on all the social networks that you chose to use.

What do I mean by that you ask?
What I mean is in your site your comments will be seen by the internet world through social media Google sees that and it will give your site more trust.
That in turn shows up here at the community as well all what ronniem was saying in the video up above is right when you give it comes back full circle.
Let me explain it another way:
You comment on ronniem or my site, right we do a post on Facebook, Pinterest, Google PLus, Twitter, Linked-in or any other social media panel. Guess what some clicks on one of our sites maybe they don't buy anything but they leave comment and ask questions. We as affiliates see that we fix the problem make another post that person sees our site again this time they buy, a true pay it forward program.
Basically we are helping one another look good to the internet world and also the search engines.
Everyone should grasp onto this because moving up and getting site trust is going to be what you'll need to succeed in the online world.
Get inside make some comments, post, ask questions and keep giving feedback to the community and the newbies here we all can use the help!
Once again thanks ronniem, loved the video I even liked it for you as well makes you feel good that there is help just around the corner.

Thank You ronniem, what a nice compliment. I'm so pleased it inspired you. I think WA is what it is today in so many ways, because the members really do Pay It Forward!

I did this to help new member to have a clear understanding on how much they can contribute right from the start! And how important they are to this community! Thanks again!

Oh my! For goodness sakes, I wish many more would have and could be seeing this wonderful little vid you have created. WOW! Not only is this a great creation, well done, but the message, Sharon, the message is right on target. So.....

Just wanted to tell you a great big thank you. Now that I know you have blogged this for us, I can come back to it, copy and paste your link to this blog and share it when I see someone is trying to figure out the WA community. Now not only are there many good blogs about our pay-it-forward community there is a good visual to get the message across ever so clearly.

GOOD Job! I can just feel the smiles emitting right out of the pages. Thank YOU!

Hi Linda, I must apologize for my tardiness in responding to your kind words. I happen to find it way down at the bottom of the notifications and I missed it. I'm usually right on top of responding to members who contact me.
I'm so glad you understand, and I do wish more people would have seen this. I'm told that I did get an above average number of people who did see it and I should be happy with that. So, I do hope you will share it and perhaps it will help others to understand why we pay it forward! I know you do:) keep :)ing Sharon

Most kind of you to respond back.

I fully intend on keeping a link to this one so I can share it with others. It is such a great contribution.

I felt the same way about my training on Ergonomics of a Blogging Enthusiast. I think far too many of us are likely working at our desks, tables, laptops in ways that could create serious harm. It was meant to support others, even as your wonderful video is.

You are doing wonderfully here in the community. I am very glad I have found you. Of course in my hurry to leave a message for you, I forgot to click the follow button. Got ya' covered now! "-)

In fact, I have shared it in my Facebook page too. I like the folks who are in my circle to know that I am engaged with a remarkable, caring community.

And I keep thinking there are others, like you and I and our many many members, who haven't found WA yet that could benefit from having this knowledge and the abilities they will develop.

Thanks again!

What a talented video maker you are. I hope you will be sharing your knowledge about how to make them too!

Hi UKMerchant, Thank you for your kind words and feedback. I'd be glad to share, you will need several software programs to do the animation part, but you can do the same type that kyle does using his method. I'm a graphic artist and I love to be creative. This makes for a much more fun and interesting training, don't you think. I have several more that help members to move forward faster if you're interested I will gladly send you them just let me know. I try to make them helpful but a little different each time. I'm here if you need help. Keep smiling. Sharon:)
