How the Wealthy Affiliate Community works

Wealthy Affiliate is owned by Kyle and Carson. They work with a team and all of them has their specific role. In both the Certification course and the Affiliate Bootcamp you will follow courses hearing the voice of Kyle. But they are not the only ones you learn from.

There is a Wealthy Affiliate Community. This community is formed by all the members of Wealthy Affiliate. The membersWorld Community are from countries all over the world. I have a feeling that most members are from the USA. But I have “met” members from different countries of Africa, like South Africa, Namibia, and Kenya. But I also have friends from Australia, India, Malaysia, Vietnam, and Russia. Of course, there are also people from Europe (for example from Finland, the Netherlands, France, England, Germany, and Greece). Hay muchos miembros que hablan Espanol y que son de Latino America. And do not forget my own region, the most fabulous part of the world, the Caribbean!

How does the Wealthy Affiliate Community works?


Who are the members?

The members are people from all over the world. The cultural difference is enormous. But also the age difference. The youngest one I met was 17. I also met people over 70! Some are looking for a way to pay for college, others are looking for a way to get out of the Rat Race. While others, do not even want to enter the Rat Race. Some want to supplement their income, while others are looking for a way to retire. Of course, there are a lot of curious ones too.

Are they all newbies? Not at all. There are a lot of newbies, but there are seasoned affiliate marketers too. Sometimes I read their bio’s and I am like “You have done it all, what else do you need?”. This is also proof that Wealthy Affiliate is for everybody. Some members had a website before joining and are very handy in customizing and setting it up. I built my first website here at Wealthy Affiliate.

I have met a lot of teachers, nurses, network marketers, fashion designers, yoga instructors, guitar players, hikers, students from a range of disciplines, mechanics, engineers, writers and I could go on for hours.

There is also a group that I admire the most. They can not participate in the job market due to their health. I am so glad they found Wealthy Affiliate and the community to share their experience, knowledge, and desires.

Different experience

The community, the members of Wealthy Affiliate are from all over the world, with different backgrounds and experiences.


How to get in touch with the community.

There are so many ways to get to know the people in the community. I will go through some ways I found out, but I am sure there are more ways.

From the start

At the moment you make an account you will receive two messages; one from Kyle and one from Carson wishing you welcome to Wealthy Affiliate and like on Facebook they will follow you. If you signed up with someone with a website, you will receive a message from this person too. So you feel welcome from the first moment.

All the other members can see on their personal WA Space (Wealthy Affiliate Space) the persons who sign up if. The WA Space is something like your Profile Page in Wealthy Affiliate. There are a lot of people, like me, who like to welcome the new members. But there are so many new members every day that I choose every day 8 new members to welcome and to follow. I go for the ones with a picture.

The new members can follow me back.

The New Premium Members

On top in the middle of the homepage of Wealthy Affiliate, you will see the members that sign up to become a Premium member. From there it is easy to say Hello to them and follow them. This is a great way to make new friends.

In the courses

You can follow the Certification Course or the Affiliate Bootcamp. The text and videos of the lessons are always followed by a discussion. Here you can post comments about the course. Sometimes one of the tasks is to put the link to your website, social profiles or your experience. Other members will react to your post and you can engage in nice conversations. Sometimes you will find someone who is giving you really good ideas or tips. You can react to posts of the community members too. There is also a list of the top helpers in the thread.

If you like their advice or website you can just follow them. If you write something interesting, they will follow you too.

Live ChatLive Chat

On the homepage, there is a Live Chat. Here members socialize. Say hello, talk about the weather but this is a super cool place to ask questions. As the members are from all over the world, there is always someone online. Most of the time you will get your answers in no time.

WA Blogs

Wealthy Affiliate gives you the possibility to post within the community about things that you are experiencing in Wealthy Affiliate. These blogs appear on your profile page but also on the Activity dashboard. You can read those blogs too and engage in conversations, support or encourage someone or celebrate their success.

Publish a Training

As a Premium member, it is possible to publish a training for something you think that can help the community. Or maybe it is you that need something in more detail explained. The training of a member of the community can help you out. Probably the person who wrote the training can do a lot for you. And you can even become friends.

Site Feedback

The Site Feedback is a place where you can ask the community to give you feedback on a page or your website. To be able to do this you have to give feedback first. It is a nice way to give and take.

Private Message

Premium members also have the possibility to send each other private messages. Sometimes you want to ask a specific person something privately. Well, that is possible too.


Conclusion

The community is everywhere on Wealthy Affiliate and they help you with whatever you have. You can make friends and exchange experiences and questions. But you also get inspired by accomplishment and successes of others in the community.

So this is how the Wealthy Affiliate Community works.

How to sell your product online

Nowadays there are different ways to sell your product online. One of the main reasons is to reach more people. I come from a very small island in the Caribbean named Curacao. There are only 140000 people living here. When you go to a shop here, p.e. a cloth shop, most of the time you are the only customer there. We depend very much on tourists. So you can imagine how important the internet is for us. Here are some other reasons why you would want to sell your product online:

  • 24/7 reachable
  • Better customer support
  • Low start-up costs
  • Live/work from anywhere
  • Reduce operation costs

But what do you need to realize this?

A product


Is the product you want to sell physical or is it a service? It is even possible to start a business with the product of someone else. Wealthy Affiliate will help you define in more detail what it is you want to sell. They help you to uncover opportunities with keywords. Also, the competition will be taken into account using a tool called Jaaxy.

But you can also follow your passion, own experience and expertise.

Wealthy Affiliate uses a question I like very much to help determine your product. They look at the pain of customers and ask you to fill in the next sentence.

I want to help people with ………………….

Your target Customermarket


Who would buy your product? In other words who need your product? One commonly made mistake is trying to sell your product to everybody, making everybody your customer. The name says it already, it is a target market. Who are you targeting? This is import to know so you know how to direct your efforts. Especially your advertising efforts. You could imagine that the approach of a teenager would be completely different to the approach of someone who just retired. Wealthy Affiliate will guide you through this process.

Be sure that your product and your target market match. Understand your customers and even your future customers. You have to let the customers know what your product can mean to them, which value it brings to them. People will only buy something that will help them solve a problem. They will buy from someone they trust. You have to get your target market to trust you.

Marketing


There are a lot of ways to market your product. That is the act by which you promote and sell your products. It includes market research and advertising and a lot more. In the online world, it is called generating traffic. Let Wealthy Affiliate help you with that. They will give you possibilities to let your target market know that you are there. There are different strategies that can be used.

In less than a month at Wealthy Affiliate, I made a lot of friends. I know 200 more people now. They know about me and what I am promoting. Some friends at Wealthy Affiliate told me that they left Wealthy Affiliate after some time because they were doing good. Now that they are back they are doing even better with all the courses and information they are getting. This platform is not only for the newbie but also for the more seasoned online business owners.
At Wealthy Affiliate, you will learn all that there is in blogging & content marketing and of course affiliate marketing. But also about keywords (using Jaaxy), SEO & PPC campaign.

A websiteWebsite


To do all the above you need a website. You should create and host a website. Wealthy Affiliate will let you create a website for free and host it also for free. They use SiteRubix for the creation of your website. In no time you can have a website up and running. This website is an example of that. There are of course more tools to make websites easily. Some of them are easy but you can not customize them as you want.

You do not have to worry about the hosting if you are with Wealthy Affiliate. Wealthy Affiliate will take care of your website so that it is on the internet for your target market and others. Backups are made automatically. This is possible even with a free account.

Good characteristicsGood Character head


It is commonly known that having all the above will not be sufficient to succeed. As a person, you need some qualities too, like a burning desire to succeed, faith, knowledge, imagination, discipline, patience, planning skills and a partner to help you realize all of this.

Starting your own online business means that you are an entrepreneur. So are your own boss. Nobody to run after you to tell you when and where things should be done. You can work on your own time and at your own pace, but things have to be done to get somewhere. Discipline is maybe one of the most important of all the characteristics mentioned above.

Conclusion


There are a lot of things to consider when you want to start an online business. At first, it can be quite overwhelming. Do not get discouraged. If you want something then you must be willing to learn.

Wealthy Affiliate will help you with even the personal qualities. Have faith that they will give you the knowledge needed. Your imagination will be triggered by the community. Have discipline and patience to follow the well-organized courses. You will have a partner for life.
