How Do I Get Help? in Wealthy Affiliate (WA)
Like many people born before technology took over, I was a NEWBIE, I didn’t know anything when I joined WA.
Thanks to the Training, Tools, Support, and amazing community within WA, I can take what I have learned and pay it forward, helping others who are just beginning their journey, find their way around, and know where to go for help.
When you need help . . .
~~> Click on either the WA logo or the Home tab in the main menu.
~ LIVE CHAT
This is one of my GO-TO places for help.
~~ > Click on the blue bubble
Jump into a live chat . . .
Say hello, ask a question. . . it is a great place to connect with other members.
Suggestion: Learn where to look for the information, then go and look into it yourself.
It’s great to get answers, but part of learning is going through the process of seeing and doing it for yourself.
~ SEARCH BAR
This is my second GO-TO place for help.
~~ > Click on the magnifying glass
Type in your question in the search box
You can scroll down and see what the suggestions are …
- Suggestions Button
- Favorites Button :
To add a Training, Tutorial, Video, or similar question, you like and want to save to your favorite list
I typed “Please give me feedback on my website”
- The first result is a post by Kyle, where you can go and leave your URL for your website and ask for feedback from the community
- To the far right after Kyle’s profile picture is a “star”
~~> Click on the STAR to save it to the “My Favorites” list.
Suggestion: I would “TAG” your favorites, it makes organizing and finding them easier.
You can Write a Blog asking your question so that the whole community will see it.
(Note: when you ask a question in chat, only those that are looking at / or are on chat will see it)
~~> Click on the Pencil ( Quick Action)
~ How do I go back to find my Blog Post?
- You can search using the “New Blogs” or “New Questions”, in the dashboard on the homepage ( you can click on the WA logo or the Home tab in the main menu to get back to the homepage).
You should go back and read the replies; WA is a community that is all about paying – it – forward, taking advantage of all the knowledge, information, helpful hints, encouragement, and support that other members take out of their day to offer.
Take the time to reply, at least with a “Thank You.”
Don’t feel obligated, but if you like someone’s answer, you can “LIKE” it and maybe add a little appreciation for their time.
There are times when all I get is what I think of as a “spammy” answer, for example, “Good Question,” that I do not “Like” these, and I do not reply.
Suggestion: I don’t think it is right or that it should be acceptable to raise your rank just by adding generic, useless comments. My advice would be to use this excellent resource as it was meant to be used and not ask or answer in a ‘spammy” way.
~ HELP TAB
~~ > Click on the “Help” tab
> Drop down menu
In the Help Center:
- If you have any technical difficulties, send in a Site Support Ticket.
[ ] WA has a top-notch tech support team, the few times I have had to submit a ticket, the response time was within 15 minutes.
[ ] Again be patient, sometimes it may take a little longer but they will get back to you and get it sorted out.
- You can also use this to ask the community a question
[ ] When I have asked the community a question, I have received replies IMMEDIATELY.
[ ] Remember that there are no dumb questions ~ part of the learning process is asking questions,
[ ] Take advantage of the HUMUNGOUS community here that wants to help, encourage, and support you on your journey and see you succeed.
- This is where you can send a “PM” (Private Message), and manage your messages.
One of the unique and special things about WA is that the co-founder’s Kyle and Carson are hands-on and available.
You can contact them in several ways, including:
- The initial message on your profile page, when you first join WA, click on RELY and leave a message.
- Leave a message on their profile page _ you can type their name in the search bar, then click on their name and it will take you to their page, and you can leave a message.
- Send a PM (Private Message) click on the envelope, click on the new message button, type in their name) and write your message.
- Through the Help tab . . .
~~ Click on the “Contact” button and leave a message.
[ ] I have always had my questions, comments, and concerns answered when I have reached out to them.
TOP HELPERS TODAY:
There are about 8 members who are noted as “top helpers”, you can click on their profile picture and leave them a message.
[ ] You will start to recognize the ones that are actively helping people, and you will get to know and trust some of them as very knowledgeable and very valuable resources.
[ ] Again, I suggest looking things up yourself, and learning about whatever it is you are asking about.
[ ] Answers to questions are very helpful, but you still have to learn and understand so you can continue to grow.
At WA you have multiple ways to reach out to technical support, the co-founders, and the community & you will always get a response.
[ ] In the 9+ years I have been here, I have never once had a question, problem, or concern go unanswered/ or unresolved.
Keep in mind that WA is WORLDWIDE, so if you message someone or ask a question, please be patient; there are many different time zones. It may be in the middle of the day for you, but it could be in the middle of the night for someone else.
I have mentioned this throughout the post because sometimes we are so caught up in whatever is going on with us, that we lose sight of the fact that we are part of a community that is over A MILLION members. Just try and be a little patient, every member is part of the community which is like an extremely large extended ‘family’.

We already covered OEC and Affiliate Bootcamp, so let’s get right into My Training Activity, Training HQ, and Classrooms.
My Training Activity:
Lists training, the date viewed, and there is also a VIEW button if you want to look at it / or take it again.
Now some people might not think to take the training again, or may think that is it going backward instead of forward.
I have gone back and done some of the training again, I benefited from it, and it helped me move forward.
We all learn differently, so do the training the way you need to do it.
It is not a race, in fact, it is better to SLOW DOWN, and understand it, before moving forward to the next lesson.
Type in what you are looking for in the search bar, choose a topic or use the filters:
ALL, Classrooms, Events,
All, New, or Popular.
~ Using the “ALL” and “NEW” filters
Suggestion: Take advantage of the Classrooms, Training, and Tutorials in the Training HQ.

To get into classrooms, you would use the filter “CLASSROOMS”, the search bar and the filters are the same as above.
