FAQ’s for Wealthy Affiliate (WA)
I have been with Wealthy Affiliate since 2013, while things have change over the years ( for the better), I still see the same questions being asked from new comers, so I thought I would write a quick post to cover some of them here.
How do I get started?
To get started in WA go to the main menu on the left and click the “Get Started Here” button.
How much do the lessons cost?
The first level of Getting Started and the first phase of Bootcamp are FREE!
If you upgrade to premium all the lessons come with the upgrade, as well as all the other features of premium… you don’t have to pay separately for the lessons.
>If you want a domain name, that is not included in the premium membership, you will have to purchase one from someplace like Name Cheap ( they are about $10.00 / year). You can either get one now or wait it is up to you, you do not have to buy a domain to get started.
How to find training:
Getting Started and Bootcamp are the two main training’s, go to the main menu on the left and click on them.
I would start with the “Get Started ” course, you can switch over to the “Boot Camp” in lesson 3 if you want to promote Wealthy Affiliate.
What do I do next?
Follow the lessons . . .
The lessons are laid out, step by step, and there are tasks you need to complete at the end of each lesson.
If you don’t do the tasks, you are only hurting yourself and your business. To get the most out of the lessons, do all the tasks and click them off when they are done.
* If you are not able to keep track of where you leave off, then go back and make sure you have all the tasks clicked off, the lessons won’t keep up with you unless you do this.
How do I keep track of my training?
At the end of the lesson, you will see “Your Tasks” box …
Do the tasks, and check them off as you go, both Getting Started and Boot Camp have smart buttons that will take you back to where you left off.
How do I go back to a previous training?
You can go back to any lesson, anytime. It is okay to go back and redo them, as many times as you need to.
- If you are doing the Get Started courses, scroll down to “Training” and look for these links, in the Menu.
Find the level you were on and click on it, then find the lesson you want to review.
- If you are doing the Bootcamp scroll down to “Affiliate Program” and look for these links in the menu.
When you find the phase you were on click it, then find the lesson you want to review.
How do I get help ?
The search bar in WA is a great tool – you can find Training, Blogs, Questions and more …
You can also go to the “Ask a Question” box
How do I find my account?
To find your account click on your profile icon ( top right side of the screen above the Live Chat box)
The last icon will be where you find your profile… your’s will look different.
Your profile pic will be where my sunset over the ocean picture is in the example above
or it will be if you haven’t uploaded a picture yet
Click on Account Settings
How do I cancel my WA membership
You can cancel anytime…. but hold on a minute.
You have all the training, tools, services and support you need here, if you have a question or are stuck there are several ways to get help…
~ Live Chat
~ Activity board
~ Search bar
~ Private Message ( PM) – premium member’s
Don’t give up – reach out…
If you’re within the 7 days, why not go through the lessons – they are free!
You have nothing to loose and everything to gain.
But if you really want to quit, you can go to your profile page, and account settings and cancel your membership anytime.
If you are a Free starter member there is nothing to cancel – just log out.
Things to avoid:
These are a few things I have found not to do over the years, and would like to pass them on to you.
1) Rushing through the lessons
2) Skipping parts of the lessons, and or sections of them
3) Not doing the tasks at the end of the lesson
4) Struggling on your own when you have access to help
5) Not taking advantage of the SEARCH BAR
6) Not giving it a fair shot, if you want it, you have to put in the time and effort. You have all the Training, Tools, and services, support you need, all you have to add is time and effort
I hope this overview helped answer some of your initial questions, and got you acquainted with how to get around WA, especially where to go for help … everything you need to succeed is here, all you have to bring is the determination, time and effort and you will get there.
