I have been a member at WA for about a year now and it is by far my favorite online spot for learning and talking about affiliate marketing. I’ve found that WA contains a vast amount of benefits for anyone who is looking to start building some residual income streams from home on the side. Here I will cover what I consider are the top sixteen key benefits of WA.
24/7 Support (Live Chat, SiteSupport, Q & A)
With WA help and support are never far away. There’s Live Chat, SiteSupport for your website, and a community question and answer feature where you can ask new questions. You can also browse questions that have already been answered and help answer questions you know the answer to.
Each classroom has its own Q&A section. I really like it. It’s like having an unofficial mastermind group, WA is a great place to brainstorm and find help. You have the support of the whole WA community. I’ve tried a considerable amount of other online courses and opportunities, each time I was discouraged by the average support, but not at WA. Here is a great guide on how to find answers to your questions in WA.
Tons of Personal Online Business Mentoring
Having someone to direct you and to give you ideas and thoughts can make all the difference. WA is a great place to connect with other bloggers, affiliate marketers, and online entrepreneurs. First, it’s important that you know exactly what a mentor is, read my short guide on how to find online business mentors.
The WA Community is a True Community
The community at WA has a pay it forward attitude and people there are more than willing to help. It never seems like you are getting spammed, the people inside aren’t just trying to sell you the next thing like at Affilorama.
With over 200,000 members the WA community can get a bit loud at times, don’t lose momentum towards your goals by spending too much time keeping up with all the updates from you fellow WA community members.
Pay it Forward Ambassadorship Program
This is one of the great things about WA because it enhances the community. The WA Ambassadorship Program is simply a way for WA to promote a community where people help one another. Everyone is given a rank number which basically shows you how helpful they are to other members of the community.
Ambassadors are just normal everyday people who love to share resources and communicate within WA. There are more than 100,000 active members worldwide and the top 25 positions are given the rank of Ambassador.
You get helper points, activity points, and creator points. You don’t have to earn any of these points if you don’t want to but there are benefits to working toward ambassadorship. It’s going to show people within the WA community that you have more expertise which leads to a larger following within the community and other awesome yearly incentives that reward the top 100 and 200 most community-engaged WA members.
Weekly Live Classes (and 100’s of hours of replays)
Never stop learning. Having a mindset of an online entrepreneur means that you’re going to continually learn. The most successful people I know at WA are always at the weekly live training classes learning everything they possibly can. There are so many replays, there are still plenty previous live classes in the library that even I haven’t gotten to review myself yet.
Step by Step Training Courses
WA has been around longer than a decade so you will find some outdated training made by members who have been with WA for years but the two essential courses (both listed next below) are kept up to date and members create new training every day.
What I like most about these courses is that they get you to take action because the best way to learn new skills is by actually doing them. They give you the lesson, they give you tasks, and then you complete those tasks and move on to the next lesson.
Online Entrepreneur Certification
Want to be able to tell people you’re an online entrepreneur? When you learn how to develop an entrepreneurial mindset and become an entrepreneur there is nothing that can help you more than real-world experience.
That is what you get at WA, the entrepreneur certification lessons get you started, get you out there, building businesses that will bring you multiple streams of income over time.
Ideally, you want to follow your heart and build a business around your passion but if you don’t know what you are passionate about right away like I was you can start at Affiliate Bootcamp where your first shown how to successfully promote WA as an affiliate.
Check out my outline of WA’s Affiliate Bootcamp course.
WA’s Affiliate Program
WA’s affiliate program is awesome, not only do you get great training, you get to start off with an awesome affiliate program where you can earn consistent revenue simply by referring people to the WA community.
WA is Great Place to Start Networking
WA allows you to meet great people from all over the world that will help you move along with your business if you keep showing up you get to know people.
The key to networking is just going out there and getting to know other people, people that are doing things, that are out there building, that are focused on moving forward.
This is why I believe Wealthy Affiliate is a great place to start networking because it is where you can find people who are serious.
There will always be folks that just take and don’t understand value, in fact, there are a lot of them. At WA I find there are plenty of value oriented people that understand and teach value, that are willing to pay, that are willing to work with you, that are grinding it out, that are going after it. Some may not have the levels of success that you are looking for but everyone has to get started somewhere.
One of the greatest times to connect with people is when they are getting started because you can learn about them and get to know them from the beginning and build a real relationship over time.
Networking is simple, you try to find out what you can do to help the other person, how to get involved and do things to help them.
You want to have people around you that are value-oriented and that work together to help each other. Get engaged with people, want to know what they are doing, want to learn from them, get excited about knowing them and watch what happens.
It’s really exciting when you get people around you who know you care about them, that you value them. When that happens you will build real relationships and they will help you and great things start to happen.
Building Websites is a Breeze
Simple and integrated. With WA you can get a new website up and running in less than a minute. It’s so easy that I’ve actually created more than I can keep up with. I’ve since narrowed my focus down to two websites to give them the energy they need to succeed. I would suggest taking your time to go through lessons 1-4 first.
After you have your website it is just a matter of doing some homework, research the products or topics you will blog about, learning daily from WA, and then taking action by actually writing something.
Writing 1000 words a day can make your wallet say hip hip hooray & 100 a day can be a great start!
A Simple SiteContent Writing Platform
Writing is really important. WA’s SiteContent tool makes content creation more streamlined and more organized.
I approve of how it simplifies everything. It gives you all you need.
- Bold, Italics, and Underlining.
- H1, H2, H3 tags.
- Bullet points and Numbered lists.
The platform gives you a count of how many words you have written, checks it for spelling, grammar, copied content, then it will publish it straight to your WordPress website.
Hosting & Website Performance Tools (SiteRubix)
Your website is fully integrated within WA. With SiteRubix you can register domains, create a website in less than a minute, access your website, view all of its stats, write and publish content to your site (it’s how I wrote this post), get technical support, comments, and feedback.
This hosting platform is a really big benefit to joining. WA has been around for over a decade and it has grown more sophisticated, elaborate, and useful year after year without changing the price. Comparable managed hosting alone is more than the cost to be a WA member.
Website Engagement Platform (SiteComments)
If you have a website your website needs comments and SiteComments is the place to start giving and getting them.
Very Useful Keyword Research Tool
Almost last but definitely not least is the WA keyword research tool where you can research the monthly searches and competition of any keyword. Discover keywords and make lists of keywords. A most useful tool indeed.
Free Start-Up Membership With No Card Required
You never know if something is right for you unless you’re able to play with it yourself. With a free membership, you can see if WA is a community you’d like to part of. With a free membership, you get access to the first few lessons of both the Online Entrepreneur Certification and the WA Affiliate Boot Camp.
If you are an aspiring blogger, affiliate marketer, or online entrepreneur then I suggest you join WA as a free member, add a picture and short bio and then start the training. From their lean as much as you can, explore the community, then make the decision to go premium.
