There is a HUGE opportunity for those that share the word about Wealthy Affiliate (OEP) and many fellow members are earning a full-time income stream simply through sharing the awesome community here at Wealthy Affiliate with others.

I want to walk you through some of the benefits of sharing and promoting Wealthy Affiliate and show you how this can be accomplished quite easily. Once people find what is offered here at Wealthy Affiliate, they often become lifetime members which can equate to a lot of money to you as an affiliate!

How To Share WA.

First things first, how do you get your special referral links that you can use to share WA and earn credits for your referrals.

To get your affiliate links, you will want to go to the following tab within the menu.


Upon clicking this tab, the "Affiliate Program" page will come up. This is where you will find all of your promotional materials including your affiliate link, training, payment structure, banners/images, your quick stats, and access to your full affiliate stats (control panel) as shown below.

This is everything you need to learn about how to effectively promote and share Wealthy Affiliate.

Remember, it is not about selling as much as it is to understanding "why people join" Wealthy Affiliate. This is customer comprehension and you likely know more about this than you think as you are a member of WA and you went through the buying process yourself. There is full training and promotional techniques on how to promote and share Wealthy Affiliate within the "Affiliate Program" page. Easily Pay for Your Membership.

You can promote Wealthy Affiliate both as a Starter member and a Premium member.! All you have to do is recommend a few people to Wealthy Affiliate to start earning your first $1 credits. Each member you refer that becomes a premium member equates to a minimum of $22.50/monthly recurring commissions. You get $175 if they sign-up as a yearly member!

Refer 3 people to the best Online Business training in the world and you are earning extra spending money every month! Anyone can accomplish this with a little bit of effort. I mean really, who doesn't know 3 people that are interested in earning money or starting a business online (or expanding their business online).

No other Training Package Compares.

You can feel good about recommending Wealthy Affiliate, because well, nothing out there compares to what is offered here. Don't try to oversell, simply send people an update on what new training has been added this week, send them information on your progress,, and let them know that we are a community that is interactive and actually cares about their success (we are real humans!) and it should sell itself.

The biggest selling factor. The Starter membership is free and includes full access to the community. You really don't have to sell this, you just have to point people to join you within the community here at Wealthy Affiliate! :)

Here are some techniques you can utilize to share that are NOT promotional:

  • Share training (let people know about new training)
  • Tell people about your work within WA (blog posts, training, forum posts)
  • Tell people what you have learned
  • Let people know about what you have built (websites, articles, business plans etc)
  • Share what you have accomplished (any success, which doesn't have to be financial)
  • Share your research
  • Give away some extra niches or keywords that you have found
  • Share any of the content on our external blogs within our "shoutout system"
  • Give people insight into WA with a video review

'Ok", great Kyle...trained by Professionals to
be Professionals...nothing wrong with that
my friend !!
I was hired by a company one time who told me that
what ever experience I had from working with other businesses,
they didn`t want to hear about it !!
They said that they were going to teach me in their own way,
that I would be trained by professionals, to be a professional !!
And that they did, with all my focus on their business. Just taught
I would drop that by you.
Let us not bring any outside luggage into WA.
You are all doing such a great job !!
Bravo !!

Hi, in the first lesson, Page 1 of "Wealthy Affiliate -- The Open Education Project," Kyle talks about
The Dashboard - Global, Personal Feed, Notification
However, I find this perplexing because his images don't show those; ergo, I am not sure what he's talking about. Help, please?

Page 2, my Dashboard looks nothing like portrayed. Mine looks like this

If you click on Activity Dashboard, That is where the Dashboard is now. The site has been redesigned, but everything is still there.

Okay, I'll assume things have different names, different look. I assumed since it was updated Dec 4 it would look the same.

I think that date is actually for all eight pages, and I know one of the other ones was just updated. If you're looking for something in particular that you can't find just ask.

So if Global Feed is now the Globe, Personal Feed now the Envelope for Private Messages, Is Global Feed just another name for Notifications?
Thanks!

If you go to the Activity Dashboard and then go to the Activity tab, there are settings to customize your feed. You can set it to Everyone which would be the global feed or Friends which would be the personal feed.

To the left of that are settings to pick which items come up, All, Unanswered questions, success, etc.

Is this the reason when I was having so much trouble with my website, no one would help me was because it would be promoting WordPress? That's just crazy, most of us start out here knowing nothing and if no one can help with problems on our themes, I can see a lot of people walking away.
I have extensive knowledge of web design, but these weren't my designs, so I felt helpless because I didn't know how to make the darn thing work, but because of my background I kept with it, but it came close to where I didn't.

Kismet,

WA members are available to help you in any area you need help.

Wordpress or otherwise. However when it's a matter of personal preference only the individual can decide that.

Plenty of people here willing and able to help. I don't recall seeing your query. What was it?

So a couple of questions, and I'm not trying to be nit picky, but I spend a ridiculous amount of time around lawyers and dealing with legal documents. I've kind of developed a need for precise language, and those rules seem to be more representing a spirit of the intent than a literal intent.

Rule 18, what's considered a product? Taken literally with the emphasis on "ANY", I would consider this a really broad term, but in the maybe three hours I've been here I've seen posts about YouTube, specific video software, and a whole classroom dedicated to Wordpress. To me these are all products. So is the key in the word "promoting"? But when combined with rules 5 and 6, it seems like saying anything good about any product is promotion of that product.

So for example Wordpress seems to be the CMS of choice. Any training on a plugin is out? I do web design for a living. All my clients use WP, and one of them got hacked. It was a mess to clean up, and I think WP security is one of the most important things that people ignore with WP and I would be happy to do training on it. I use one specific plugin though. I'm not saying you can't use others, this is just the one I use, and there are certain things you either need a plugin to do or you need to know how to code. So is the line a general blog post saying here's what you need to do, but you'll have to figure it out for yourself? Because than we come to my next question and it seems like I can't even say, "and here's where yo go to figure it out."

Rules 2 and 9 seem to be contradictory. You can't copy anything in and you can't reference anything outside. 9 says "required to go to an external website" though. So the spirit seems to be don't gratuitously be linking to outside resources, but assuming you give a thorough answer is it OK to add a reference to an outside resource for more information if desired? I tend not to expect people to accept my word for things and prefer to send them to the source so they can decide for themselves, so I want to know if I should really not be doing that.

I guess my problem is I have 20 years of programming and marketing experience, and I came here because I was looking for a community to share some of that with. I was kind of skeptical about coming here for my own reasons, but I got pulled in by the Black Friday Deal and decided to give it try. At first I thought it was going to be way better than I hoped. But after reading this I feel like I'm going to be walking on egg shells not to say the wrong thing anywhere.

So, if I recall correctly, rule 18 is referring to promoting products to other members of WA. We are a community where people are learning. Selling to the membership isn't allowed. That is what your website is for.

You can certainly provide training to help other members understand a particular product. Just don't use your affiliate link to sell to them.

If it is a helpful reference and you are not getting compensated for sending people there, then you can include external references.

Hope this helps clarify.

WA is an education resource. A school. A college.

We are all here to learn, from WA and from each other.

WA is not a flea market for peddling stuff to classmates. If you read the rules in that context you will understand them correctly. They do not apply to the websites that you create and market to the outside world.

So didn't realize when I posted that I was posting to 8 different things and not just the Spam is a No No post. Sorry about that. Direct link for reference.

Chris and Labman, thanks for your answers. I'll keep those in mind and those do seem like a good way to look at it, but if you read the rules from a completely new person's perspective that's really not how they read.

However, based on conversations I've had elsewhere your perspective may be too lax, because I definitely could see how people would use that as a way to "sneak" things in. It kind of goes back to what I said about the spirit vs the letter.

I wonder why posts sometimes get removed?
I clicked the link, and here's what it says:
×Oops! The blog that you are looking for does not exist.

Hopefully @Onmyownterms will give his own response soon. Or you could PM him and ask.

I once had a post "blacklisted" 'cos it referenced something that WA would rather keep at a good distance, and rightly so. It got straightened out with a few PM's.

Thanks. I updated my comment. Mel took it down on his own. He didn't like his tone in it.

I've talked to Mel about it. Unless he says something different, I'm pretty positive he took it down on his own, and since Kyle basically commented in support of what he said I don't know of any reason to believe differently.

You can count me in on The Open Education Project. I'm for teaching others what I've learned here at WA. I'm glad I found this information.

I was just saying the other day how I wish I had someone to push me, give me so feedback that will help me help my business and all along I had a system that I was not using.

I'm learning a lot here at WA, but I think I'm lacking some social skills. The Open Education Project looks like it may be something that may help me readjust my comfort zone.

Thank you again Kyle
