PAGE 4 = How to share Wealthy Affiliate Content Infographic & closing

Normally I write training blogs but I felt it was time to give back to the Wealthy Affiliate Community in a bigger way and offer up some Wealthy Affiliate 101 Training. This is especially for the Newbies, but anyone here within the community can benefit from it. Like I always believe, it never hurts to learn something again from a different perspective.

WHAT CAN I DO HERE?

You can do a lot here at Wealthy Affiliate (WA), but what you need to realize up front is that WA is NOT a Get-Rich-Quick program. Matter of fact there is no such thing when it comes to making money on the internet. Anyone who claims that you can, is lying to you.

Starting and operating any type of business takes work and dedication. If you are willing to work for it, you will succeed at WA. So here are the 5 most important aspects of what you can do here.

    1.You can both learn how to correctly create a successful online business in whatever your passion is, as well as having your online business website hosted here on the WA state-of-the-art website servers.

    2.You can get a tremendous amount of help and support so you do not have to go through the training by yourself. There is never a reason for you to become stuck on a task within your training here at WA, with all of the help options available to you. I will go into detail about the HELP in my next training.

    3.You can use a bunch of free Building Resources. Everything you can possibly need to start and operate your online business is located here within WA. The only things you will need to go outside of WA for are to purchase your personal domain name for only $11 per year at NameCheap and for the Free Affiliate Programs.

    4.You can build free WordPress websites with an extremely easy 4-step Site Rubix website builder that is so simple to use that you will have a fully functional website in less than a minute after clicking the blue “build” button.

    5.Wealthy Affiliate is already #1 when it comes to up-to-date training. But one of its shining stars is the WA Community, one of the most interactive and helping communities online. You can interact with community members 24/7. Being that members are from all over the world, it is very possible to get answers to your questions in the early morning hours, within reasons of course.

Hi. I'm a new member, and I was so excited about what's going on here, I told my sister about it, who joined, and became a Premium member almost right away. I didn't know about the Referral system. How can I get credit for her now?

Hi Terry

I hope I am wrong about this for your sake, but I think you have lost the chance of benefiting from your sister joining Wealthy Affiliate and upgrading to Premium.
In future if you want to refer anyone else to WA, go to:
https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/share
On that page you will find: Your Affiliate Link.
Give Your Affiliate Link to anyone you would like to introduce to Wealthy Affiliate. If they click on Your Affiliate Link and join Wealthy Affiliate you will get the credit for it.

I do not believe you can change it unless she joined under Kyle or Carson. If she joined under another member, it wouldn't be fair to take money away from that member.

She joinded under ME. I told her about the program, sat with her at her laptop while she joined, and again later that day, when she went to Premium. I just didn't realize there was a referral program
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
You should have received an email that you gained a new referral. Do you know if your sister filled out her profile and added a picture?
Reply
TRyan2 Premium
Yes, she did, but she didn't use my affiliate link or anything when she joined because we didn't KNOW about the referral program. So I'm trying to find out if there's a way to "go back" and capture the referreal. Know what I mean? She just joined on Saturday
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
If she joined through the WA home page then she joined under either Kyle or Carson and they probably give you the referral.

She will not be able to create another account because both the email address and Internet provider address she used when first joining would have to be different.

Because I've been on the Internet for a while, and know this for
a fact since I unfortunately had do deal with this I know that some handy harry's can cloack your link also called black hat SEO and so most people hide their link, do you hide your link and if so, what tool do you use
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
No. I NEVER cloak my links because it will always lead to getting your website sandboxed by Google eventually. Black Hat SEO is very bad for the future performance of a website, and since I can get Google page 1 rankings without it, why would I even consider it?

Bad links here at WA are links that promote other affiliate programs where you will directly benefit if someone else should join. Basically, no self-promoting.

Thank you so much Boomer for this tutorial!

I just got here because you posted it on a comment.

We newbies are enthusiast right away, starting the basic course, chatting with others, writing our profile and so on and your tutorial should come first thing before we are even starting participating on this! Why? Because how many of us read those small letters before signing up? And mistakes unintentionally are easy made.

So please, I think it will be very helpful when your tutorial is the first we newbies will see before we start participating on anything here, but hey that is my meaning on it.

This will avoid writing eventually things not relevant nor requested or being misunderstood from the creators here!

I surely do not want to break any rules and knowing before starting will surely add to do it right from the beginning on.

Said this, I updated my profile, and will have to look up now if I find anything else what may offend anyone here unintentionally.

Should I find anything, how do I edit postings and remove if there is anything to remove at all? Will you be able to assist me in this?

Thanks a lot for any help on this.

Stefan

Your information is only missing the answer to one question...what can you not do with with a WA hosted website? I bring this up because after watching the squeeze marketing techniques...you know the get rich quick sites...I started to wonder if it's allowed here, what the rules are for it if it is and reasoning for why it's not if that is the case. I have noticed several people asking this type of question. I don't think it is but I couldn't find any information on it. Can you help with this please, and thank you in advance!!
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
Not sure I quite understand what you are asking. - You can create any kind of website here as long as it is not something illegal or pornographic.

Personally I would not want to emulate most of what get-rich-quick websites do simply because that most websites like that are promoting a product or program that are mostly ripoffs.

The only true way, and lasting way, to make good money online is the slow and steady approach. Just like the tortoise and the hare, slow and steady always wins.
Reply
SuzetteH Premium
You don't see that information because wealthy affiliate is not that type of program (get rich quick). Kyle makes that very clear from the very beginning. There are ways to earn extra cash as you are building your business here at WA. I believe they are not mentioned within the training because it would take time away from what you are trying to achieve here.
Reply
des1963 Premium
I was just wondering if the get rich quick sites weren't allowed. I totally agree that they are ripoffs and the fast road to having a bad online reputation. I do believe that a brief lesson on it may be beneficial to newbies who have no real understanding of the difference. I've studied those Ponzi schemes for years, but there are a lot of people that fall for them not understanding they aren't selling a product, they are pitching a lie. Just a thought...lol Best Wishes
Reply
des1963 Premium
Thank-you. The reason why I asked is that the Ponzi scheme websites are bad for all concerned and border on illegal as far as I'm concerned. There are a lot of people however that don't understand that because of the "money" idea. They hear the term "authority site" and don't understand the difference. Maybe a little more clarification on the subject would be beneficial in the long run...just a thought...Best Wishes!

After this explanation, I have to agree with you. A clearer explanation would be beneficial to the people who are new to online marketing.

With that one person you will not get credit for because they already joined through someone else's affiliate link and probably never even filled out their profile. The only thing you can do is help them gain access to WA by giving Kyle their email address so he could look up their login information. But either way you will not get a referral credit for that person.

As for everyone else, just let them join when they are ready.

Question about the referral credits? What does "setting up their account mean exactly?" I thought they had to add an image and a bio to be "set up" I have a total of 21 referrals. Only 3 of those referrals added an image and a bio and only one who went Premium, but I have 6 credits.

The new credit system Kyle blogged about last week said that the $1 credits are now being counted as 2 50 cent credits. So 3 referrals now equals 6 credits.

Hi,
Is there anyway to put link just only a few words like " Wealthy Affiliate Program " with underline only instead of a long "http://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/getting-started/what-does-clicks-raw-clicks-unique-clicks-content-means/a_aid/xxxxx" ?
what I mean is that I want someone to click "Wealthy Affiliate Program" and it will automatically link to WA home page with my id as referral. Kindly advise. Thanks.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
If you have the Pretty Link plugin that Kyle recommends on your website, you can create a better looking link. It would be your website address and then the prettier link extension following it.

As an example this is what my website link looks like.

legitimatejobfromhome .com/free-starter-membership

NOTE: Normally there is no space between the e and the .com. I did that on purpose so that this comment wouldn't turn it into a clickable link.

Here is Kyle's training on Pretty Links

Thanks a lot for this lesson. It's a topic I've wondered about and it's very informative.

I have a question for you. Do you earn a lot of Wealthy Affiliate referrals from the content you post on the WA website??

I ask you that because I noticed that you post a lot of training and tutorials on WA. It appears as though you post more "useful" stuff on here than any other members.

The other reason I'm asking is for the exact reason I posted this question..... As I stated in the question, I've accidentally referred quite a few people here through my WA content and I'm wondering if I should focus more on posting here in order to gain more referrals.

Cheers,

Robert
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
I would say it is about 60% from my website. But one thing to remember, I have 3 popular scam reviews with as high as 102 comments on them, all ranking on Google page 1 position 1. On those reviews I have both my WA affiliate link and links to my WA blogs. So don't stop focusing on your website!

So even if my referral comes from my WA blog which was accessed through my website, it still is basically coming from my website. I also get a lot of referrals from just sharing my custom WA affiliate link. The one way to know for sure if your referral is coming from your WA blogs is to look at your Referral Entrance Details.

All of the referrals that enter WA from the entrance point of "Guest User Modal" are from your WA Blogs and Training. The "Default Create Account Modal" is from the bottom of the WA Home Page of your WA affiliate link. The other entrance points should be self-explanitory.

Thanks for the response. That's very interesting that you estimate 40% of your referrals come from your content here at WA.

It definitely makes me want to put a lot more thought into where I post my content going forward.

Thank you for getting back to me on this, much appreciated! I will reread this again, I do see many people adding links to their comments telling us to check out their site and blogs. I guess this is allowed, it confused me, I don't want to do anything wrong.

Best

William

There are some who are still breaking the rules because they do not know any better. But there are several comment areas where it is OK to leave links to your websites to get comments. So what you are seeing could be those comment areas.

Thanks for the lesson on don'ts.Every affiliate needs to read this and it's good to reread now and then.Some things like self promotion,religion and politics are easy to fall into without thinking.Self checks are good.Cheers:)

boomergp08 Premium
Yes, I agree! Everyone here at WA should read these No No Rules every now and then. This was one reason why I included it in this training.

If I click on the blue like button at the top mid right, where does the post go with my affiliate link? I did it for your p1 of this training but couldn't find it on my FB page? I would like to post to my FB page.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
Actually sometimes Facebook doesn't really put it on your profile page but in a somewhat hidden "Liked" folder that is more visible to your Facebook followers than it is for you.

When this happens to me I sometimes just copy the affiliate link and manually paste it to my Facebook profile. This way I know it was posted.

Very strange, I just tried doing the same as you and I can't find it visible anywhere either, but if I go to "View Activity Log" it is recorded in the log as having happened, set as public and allowed on the timeline?
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
Exactly! Facebook is very quirky sometimes. When this happens to me, I just copy the affiliate link and paste it to my Facebook profile manually.
Reply
alleo Premium
Yes understand Facebook can be quirky, but in my experience Facebook is demonstrating a consistent pattern of not showing WA likes.

Might be a topic worthy of some training if we are do this manually.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
It does seem like that is the case lately. But I actually teach people on page 3 of this training tutorial on how to find and manually copy your affiliate link.
Reply
ingiB Premium
That is what I did, and I pasted the link under my comment. When I didn't see anything on my FB page I did a post there saying that I was doing something new and would put up more info over the next couple of days.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
I too just had to manually post one of my training tutorials to my Facebook profile yesterday and I will probably post another one later today. I tend to be of the old school mindset. Forget the buttons, but rather copy and paste the link manually. Always works like a charm.

Thanks so much for your input. I clicked the Blue like button on this page as you talked about in lesson 3 I think it was and added my affiliate link. I hope I did it correctly.I can't find it anywhere..lol. I will soon get over my nervousness at really messing something up or saying or doing the wrong thing. Horrible not knowing what you don't know, but I am learning, Working with two screens now and that helps.

Just click on the black and white Airplane icon at the top of the page to the right of the search bar. On the page that appears, your affiliate link is at the top.

Dear Mr Robert,
When I joined in WA as a first Free and then Premium member I was at stake thinking whether I can succeed in my efforts in future through WA. But your welcome note and continuous inspiration with other WA MEMBERS I have gained inspiration. I've been amazed after going through your highlyuseful and helpful training blog about How to earn through WA referrals etc. Now, I have gained confidence to flourish through WA.
Thanks a lot for your good wishes in helping others.

You are most welcome Thirunavukkarasu, I am very happy that I was able to help inspire you to bigger and better things. Just be prepared to work hard because all good things come through hard work and dedication. The nice thing about WA is that you do not have to go through that hard work alone.

Hi I have a question. I am going through the WA boot camp and Kyle asks us to post and share WA content. I did write info about what I was posting. I just received a warning from g+. What am I doing wrong? Can you help?
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
You cannot share WA content on Google+ because they see it as spam, thanks to members who spammed the WA links on Google+ more than a year ago.

I answered your question on the question discussion forum on how I share WA on Google+. So for now, just share it on Facebook or any other social media network you are on and not Google+, unless you do what I instructed you in the other reply to you on this question.

You are welcome Emilie! You may want to be careful when using Google+ to share WA links, for some reason they have been deleting raw affiliate links from any affiliate program.

The only way I have been able to safely share WA on Google+ is to share a page or post from my website that has the link or a Pinterest Pin that has my link.

Sharing my WA link on any of the other social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, & LinkedIn), I have no problems at all. Only Google+ is there a problem.

boomergp08 Premium
You are welcome Marion! I have always felt that even us veteran members can always get a clearer understanding of things we have already learned, when going back and learning them again or from another perspective.

Mainly because the first time through, all of the knowledge is new and many times not everything sinks in. I know personally for me, I have brought more clarity on certain parts of the training when going back and relearning it.
