Finding Your Way Around Wealthy Affiliate

Today I want to show you around Wealthy Affiliate ( WA), there is a lot of information, and it can be a little overwhelming.

Two things to keep in mind ~ Suggestions
~ Continue to Grow ~
~ Take advantage of the Wealthy Affiliate Community ~

A look at the Main Menu ~ We will cover the tabs in the menu as we go.

Before we dig in, I want to point out 2 of my GO-TO places for help.

Located on the right side of the Main Menu.

  • Search Bar, you can type in your question or problem. It contains training, discussions, blogs, tutorials, and a “people also ask” section. 

  • Live Chat: You can jump on and say hello, chat with the community, and ask for help.

Remember: There are no stupid questions; we all start with the first step and never be afraid to ask for help. A WHOLE community here wants to help and see you succeed.

Three tiers of memberships:

In general, a Starter Member will have either a silhouette or a profile picture.

For example

My profile picture is the ocean view and the crown is for Premium Plus Membership

Ocean pictue with a crown

In the training, The Rocket = Free Starter Member

Purple Diamond means premium member

The Purple Diamond = Premium Member

The Crown = Premium Plus Member

A comparison chart of the 3 memberships and what they include


Home Page :

Let’s start on the Home Page. There is a lot going on in here. 

To the left, you have your information. 

Profile picture

User Name

Badges you have earned,

Your Membership

Your Rank

For Example:

 

Dashboard Menu:

Wealthy Affillate Dashboard

The dashboard is where you can . . .

  • Read through the scrolling blog 
  • Use the menu

~ It’s a good place to keep an eye on and see what’s happening.

There are a lot of good blogs, training, and information, just don’t get sidetracked too long and lose focus on your training and building your business. 


The Top Menu Bar: 

WA icon  –

Takes you to the Home Page

Takes you to the Home Page as well.

Training

My two cents on training :

Suggestion: Take your time and understand the lesson, and do all the tasks before you move on to the next one. There is nothing wrong with going back over a lesson or going back to a lesson later on. It’s not a race, it’s a process, you build a business. As long as you are putting in the time, and doing the work, it will come together. It’s a step-by-step process. You always have the WA community there to help you along the way. 

This is where you should start your journey after you take a look around the homepage.

Suggestion:

Starting out with the Online Entrepreneur Certification first, you can switch to the Affiliate Bootcamp later if you want to promote WA and earn commissions. The training here is nothing like I have ever seen before. Take advantage of all of it.

By clicking the up and down blue arrow:

A drop-down menu

Down the middle, there are programs that are categorized as:

For this example, I searched for ” Affiliate Marketing

You can filter several different ways.

~~~ My advice is to check out the program and make sure that it is relevant to your niche and learn how to choose the right affiliate program.


Publish:

Brings you right to SITE CONTENT where you can write your content.

There are also templates here that will help you with pages like . . .

  • About Me
  • Privacy Policy
  • Affiliate Disclosure
  • and more, you can also Create and Save your own Templates.

Note:  Once published the Site Content and Website are no longer connected. If you want to make changes you have to do it in WordPress, it won’t transfer changes to Site Content.

My Content posts you have written, and either saved or published

Writing Stats: You can set goals for yourself and track your progress.

Templates: You can create your own or use any of the ones that are already set up. Making writing content faster and more efficient.

EXAMPLE:

I found there was a bit of a learning curve, but I recommend taking the time to watch the walkthrough video, I have linked below, and taking the time to familiarize yourself with Site Content.

Once you figure it out there are some cool benefits including but not limited to:

  • My Content / Writing Stats / Templates
  • Ability to filter your posts
  • Create Buckets ( folders) to organize them as you add new content
  • ABC ( with the check mark)
  • Access to 1,000,000 images you can use wherever you want ( Premium/ Premium Plus)
  • Plagiarism checker

and more…

This example shows you where to find the “Mountain in a box” to find the IMAGES and where to find the ABC ( with a check mark) to check your work for grammar, spelling, punctuation, sentence structure, etc…

~~ > Click the image that looks like a mountain in a box

Example:

* NOTE: when you choose an image, scroll down, and make any changes that you want to as far as cropping, aligning, etc. and click the “SAVE and INSERT” button.

I recommend taking a few minutes and watching Kyle’s walkthrough, where he goes through and explains it Site Content and how to use it in detail.

Magnify Glass: Also called “The Search Bar”

If you are stuck or have a question, type it in the search bar. This is one of my favorite things and is an awesome tool.

Someone most likely has had the same question or problem, and someone else has probably already done training or a blog on it. 

There are more categories, and a “Website” section with different areas you might be looking for help on. But this is a quick look at the Search Bar:

Wealthy Affiliate Search Bar

Live Chat: 

This is another favorite.

Don’t be shy, jump in and ask a question, and chat with people from all over the world ready and willing to help you out.

With 193 Countries and over 1,4000,000 members, there is pretty much always someone around.
