I set my campaign independently to Kyle and Carson. You can do so in the message campaigns.

Thanks for your message, Abie. This is how I set my custom messages prior to AI and WA Hubs. I understood it is no longer relevant.

It is still relevant to how you communicate with the referrals after they have signed up and set up their hub.

We send people to Hubs now, as that is where you will be able to get the most current 'core' training. We are going to be phasing out the OEC and old Bootcamp training in the coming month, we are just waiting on the final release of the last series in the new core training.

Thanks Steve. I received the same response from Kyle, so it's all sorted now.

They say great minds think alike. I have asked a similar question but focused more on upgrades.; Here it is…. Why aren't my referrals upgrading ?

Zoopieasked inKeyword, Niche and Market Research2 days ago
I want to talk about my Wealthy Affiliate promotions and the lack of upgrades from referrals to "paying customers"

Let's jump into some numbers....sounds like fun, woopee.

I am currently getting 1 to 2 referrals a week, most of which come from direct promotions into various online platforms and groups. ( I have only been seriously promoting for the last 3-4 months)

For every 75 clicks I get about 1 referral. From clicks to referrals, my stats work out to about 12-13% on average.

And I have about 35 referrals, out of which I would have expected at least 1 to open their wallets.

I have had no upgrades from my referrals and want to know what Im doing wrong. I have the response letters set up automatically for when anyone joins and they are no different to most others, so feel like Im not stuffing up there. .

So has anyone got any ideas as to why the "upgrade gods" are not smiling down on me?

The responses I got were along the line that beca Of the training upgrades with the focus on AI, the automatic responses I send along with my advice on training do not marry up with Kyle’s. So I am trying to find out what Kyle sends to the new members when they first join. Thus, I can put together an auto response that will tie into Kyles “ letter”. I have also asked for Kyles reply and will get back to you when I get something.

Steve

Thanks for your response Steve. I can understand the reasoning about moving new referrals to a Hub, but in the meantime new referrals are not receiving welcome messages as per previous ones.

Here's hoping this issue is solved soon.

My apologies this message to you is not the best. I'm sending it from my phone as well as being very weary!
Not a good mix!!

Val

Your custom message campaign wouldn’t affect Kyle’s or Carson’s messaging as it’s separate. Is it possible in your custom messaging that you accidentally selected “Private Message” as the delivery method for these starter referrals instead of “Profile”? Thats a common mistake.

If none of this is what’s happening just send over your message directly to Kyle or Carson and ask. 😎👍🏼

Thanks for your response, Eric. I will send my message to Kyle.

I wondered the same thing, Valerie.

Especially since our personal campaign welcome no longer exists. Referrals are brought to the main WA homepage.

Rudy

Hi Rudy,

I've sent my question to Kyle so expect to receive a response from him soon. I will let you know Kyle's answer.

Valerie

Thanks! I look forward to hearing from you.

Rudy

Hi Rudy, I contacted Kyle regarding our question and he responded advising that the referral process is all done through the Hubs I hope this helps :)

Valerie

I will check that video out. Thanks!

Rudy

You're welcome Rudy.

I have a problem saving links to content I wish to refer to at later date.
In the past I have used Excel but I find the version of Excel not as user friendly as in the past.

Dropbox is a cloud storage service that allows users to store and sync files across multiple devices. Users can access their files on other devices using the Dropbox app or website.

Dropbox also offers productivity tools that allow users to create and share download links, and collaborate with others.

-Mike

Thanks for your very helpful response, Mike.
Much appreciated!

You are very welcome!

-Mike

Dropbox is simply remote storage that you can make available across multiple devices. However , storing locally on your laptop in a Text File, Word Doc or Excel Spreadsheet shouldn't be a problem as the amount of storage required would be trivial.

Thanks for your help, Phil. I will stay with the resources I have. Maybe Word Doc rather than Excel will do the job.

I use Excel as part of Office 365 and find it excellent. What aspects are you having issues with?

However, a Word table might be simpler and do the job easily.

For many years I used Google and Excel worked well on that. I used it frequently in my secretarial business. No problems!
However, when the time arrived for a new laptop there was the change to Microsoft Edge which I have never come to terms with.
Excel functions okay but it's slow, the layout is small - no doubt I could expand that with a little patience!
And, worst of all the laptop is slow to act. It could take up to five minutes to open in the mornings, or whenever. A few weeks ago I installed a VPN programme which has made a difference to the speed. Long may it last!!

I am going to have a cleanup of files, try Excel again, or use Word. In fact I do have some links saved in Word as well as Notepad.

Thanks for your interest, Phil.
Much appreciated!

I hope it all works out for you, Val.

Thanks, Phil.

Hi Valerie…whenever I have links I want to go back to in the future, I just make folders in my bookmark and add them there for easy reference. Then when I’m done with whatever I wanted to revisit I can just delete the link.

Susan

Hi Susan, thanks very much for your help. Ashamadly, until receiving your message, I confess that I've never stopped to identify what a bookmark online is!!
Anyway, I've checked that out now and it looks good to me.

Many thanks :)

No worries, Valerie. Dropbox is best for remote files/uploading/sharing etc. But I've found that bookmarking under different folders is a solution that makes it easy to go back to a place you liked. Like you, I always have many sites/pages I discover that need revisiting over time. 😉

I do not use DropBox to save links. I save all of my links using a notepad on my desktop MacBook Pro. DropBox is a cloud system that is excellent for keeping documents where you can access them, so I would use it if I were you. Go for it, Valerie. Test it out and see if you like it.

Thanks for your help, Brenda. I'll give it a go!

You can decide what is best. Phil does have a point. You can even use Google Docs and save it the same way as Google Drive. The point is to keep it simple and less complicated for you. You have enough to deal with.

Yes, that's true, Brenda. Thanks for your support.

Dropbox is like Google Drive, my understanding. Yeah i go with your assumption.

Thanks for your help, Abie. I'll give it a go!

No problem, Valerie :) All the best.

I am going to update the entire content of my MMO website, but before starting on the posts etc., I will update the layout design.

Having made that decision, I really do

Just an idea.

Why not ask site support for a staging website of yours to test things out before you apply on your main website?

These may hep, I input GeneratePress in Search

Thanks very much for your response, Abie.

It didn't occur to me to approach Site Support but that is good idea.

I'm not keen on spending time watching trainings, unless I really need to.

I've used GP Premium for several years but a number of those years have gone by without working in the back-end!!

Anyway, you and Rudy have given me plenty of help, so now it's time for some action on my part.

Cheers :)

No problem, and all the best. Keep us updated with your progress :)

GeneratePress is customizable to use single column, with one, two or no sidebars.

On the page editor, you can use the default template or the theme layout itself.

The combination of both will give you the look you want.

Thanks very much for your help, Rudy. I appreciate it and will make that move tomorrow!
