Let's Discuss Why We Need To Know Where To Start

This is a topic that has been discussed on numerous occassions and it seems there are several needs in this thread of discussion for some kind of Orientation Checklist to be available to New Comers to guide them to what they should do as New Comers to WA.

A question frequently asked is:

Where Do I Start?

This indicates that there is a need for this very tutorial. Just type the question in the WA Search Bar and you will see what I mean!

So without further ado, let's Start The Orientation Checklist!

Your first step is not to ask for HELP but to click on the green button to get started with your training. That is where the step by step comes from. Else, you will not know what and when to ask any questions relative to your goal and as much as we would like to help, it starts with your first step of helping yourself with the training available here in WA.

So I am still working to build a website. But I have really no idea where to start. I want to do SEO, but I am lost.

Is there a way to keep track of questions asked/answered from other pages--discussions, live chat, etc? I've asked a few questions already on live chat and a couple of discussions and am unsure of how to keep track of communication. I noticed the green globe icon is for notifications, but I'd imagine specific correspondences become hard to keep track of very quickly. Thanks!

Whenever you make a comment, you will get a notification of any other comment added to that conversation.

You'll get notified of comments made by anyone you follow.

Also, if you click on your photo and select "account settings", at the bottom you can select what things you want to be notified about.

Hi Sara,

Whenever someone replies to your questions that you asked you'll be notified by email and provided with a direct link to their response. As far as asking questions in live chat there is no way to keep track of who responds you'll just need to keep an eye on it.

I hope this helps and if you have any other questions please let me know.

Scott, thanks! I noticed with the emails soon after I asked. I was hoping there would be one place where any and all communication would be kept to refer back to. Ill make a folder on my email account for this. And good to know on live chat. Exactly what I wanted to know:)

No problem at all Sara!

There is a green notification box at the top right that lights up with a number whenever there is activity on a discussion that you're involved in, or when someone answers a question that you asked.

Also, in your activity dashboard, you'll notice that a number will appear on the top right of your my notifications tab when you have activity on any discussions or questions you've asked as well.

If you click on either of these you'll be able to see who commented on them, check out their reply, and reply back to them by clicking on the notification.

I hope this helps Sara and please let me know if you have any other questions or need my help.

Cheers
~Scott~

What credit do I earn for creating a training? Can I eventually get the Premium membership free?

One of the benefits of creating a training is to earn revenue. Here's a comprehensive lesson on creating a training including credits. The more credits you earn, the more you can pay for your premium membership.

This will be a great WA navigational tool for newbies. I've been here for more than a year, and I've learned a few things that I was not clear on. I wish I had this to follow when I first came on board.

Hi Edu. That's a very concise training aid for any new member to WA. (And maybe some of the older ones!). It can be a bit daunting to find ones' way around in the early stages so this should be of great assistance.

There is so much information on the WA site, I just started at lesson one and started reading and watching the videos, Then trying out what I learned. Actually doing what is suggested has been working for me.

One thing I noticed when doing due diligence on WA what the complaints I read seemed to come from people that didn't do the work to actually see if this stuff really works. I am doing baby steps and not trying to do it all at once.
Reply
TopAchiever Premium
You do have a point there and I expected this comment to arise. I believe that there are some people who do need a little guidance when it comes to how things should be done.

The main aim here is to help new comers to be aware of a few key things to assist them moving forward.

I know for me that keeping focused on what I am doing and not looking at everything ( well maybe a little) has helped me keep moving forward.
