These are the topics that I see on my screen right now
A plugin for the widget area that you will love forever – by SongBirdDL. Danielle shares her experience with the plugin “Black Studio TinyMCE Widget”.
Next website will be my moneymaker – by Braintree. The member says…”Hi everyone, I am Colin and have seen WA add so many tremendous improvements to their site over the past couple of years. It is my belief that everyone will be building websites in the future and we are way ahead of the crowd here at WA.”
Just paid $297 – by paulwiekel. He says…”Just wanted to share I got paid by WA last week – or was it 2 weeks back – and I even missed the payment note from Paypal. 🙂 $297!”
Page 1 of Google for multiple search phrases – by GingerMoose. He says…” I’ve followed the course, written a number of genuinely useful posts, always had the end user in mind, included the keyphrases in the title and somewhere near the start of the posts, popped them onto a couple of social media platforms and ‘bobs your uncle’ I’m on the front page. Not just for one but almost all my target keywords”.
$5K per mo is possible, follow the training and you’ll get results – by bthiel. The member starts…”
I recently resubbed and I’ve decided to drop a bit of inspiration for anyone who might be needing it.
I’ve been away from WA since last August or so, and some crazy things have happened since then.
What you’re going to see/read shouldn’t be taken as gloating or bragging, but simply as an example of what’s possible (after time) when you follow the training that’s been laid out for you here, and also what could happen if you don’t”.
An inspirational story to help other members move forward.
6 years with WA – by veronica.I. Veronica says…”
I woke up this morning and checked my profile, I joined November 21, 2007… 6 years ago. What an exciting journey this has been…
I feel very lucky that I am in the place I am right now where I can spend so much quality time with my family and friends.
If somebody would have asked me 6 years ago…
Where do you see yourself in 6 years? What are you working with? Who are you working for? How are your hours spend?
… my answers would have been:
- Have my own business, being my own boss.
- Working from home so that I can spend quality time with my kids.
- Run a business that I can take with me, that will allow me to travel.
- Decide my own salary meaning that I will not have a boss telling me what I am worth, telling me that this is the x amount of money I should be making…
With that in mind, I am living my dream :)”
My first Amazon order – by raenbomonkey. She says…”I’d actually taken a 2-day break from blogging because I just wasn’t feeling it. You know how when you look for results too often, you won’t actually see them? So, I check my Amazon account like I do every day, and find out that I actually got an order! Money-wise it’s only 4% of an item that costs $12 so not much but I’m still very excited to know that people are reading my blog and inspired enough to purchase things! Thanks to everyone here at Wealthy Affiliate I just made 48 cents!!! Can’t wait to see where I go from here”.
Made my first sale – by Ilina. She says…”I got so excited this morning when I received a message from one of my affiliate programs that I have made my first sale. I am so happy 🙂
It took me 4 months of hard work to accomplish this and at some point, I was really thinking of giving up. But I did not, thanks to the support of WA community.
Thank you for helping me and keep up the good work.
Your dreams will come true!”
Mr. Procrastination – by Jbriggz. He says…”Man!! Why am I such a procrastinator? it’s my only downfall! Once I can figure out a way to get past this horrible habit I’m going to be one hell of an entrepreneur! I need to start reading these self-help books asap! GET TO IT JACOB!!! LOL Anyone with any book advice goes ahead and shoot me your opinions Please!”

@Dan36 Were you trying to do Adwords or Adsense? Adwords is what you get if you’re wanting to buy ads. Adsense is what you signup for to serve ads on your website.
Personally, I don’t recommend either. You will typically make significantly more money by just using a Amazon native ad in your widget area and far more money by promoting relevant products to your niche in a “top recommended products” page and link to it on your menu or widget area.
Adsense was amazing once upon a time. Now, sadly, you get peanuts from the platform.

#11 EverestB about an hour ago
@RamenRiches No worries Ramen! Take your time
#12 RamenRiches about an hour ago
@Sophee1804 You can use a debit card. If it isn’t allowing you to purchase with the card (some banks may not since the payment is going to Canada,) you can check out with PayPal and use your card there.

#17 JEllery about an hour ago
does anyone else have problems with wordpress keeping spaces using the ;nbsp& code when toggling between the HTML editor and word editor?
#18 platts05 about an hour ago
@JEllery Hey mate, what problems are you having? you see the NBSP when you stich back?
#19 platts05 about an hour ago
#20 JEllery about an hour ago
@platts05 when I add spaces inbetween each of my paragraphs on the HTML editor, when I go back to the Visual editor, all of the spaces disappear. Is there anyway around this
#21 Freisia about an hour ago
@JEllery I put the spaces where I want them in the visual editor or use some code for spaces when using text. See https://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch001662.htm
#22 platts05 about an hour ago
@JEllery there is, there are actually a few ways. Is there a reason you are switching between?
basically adding spaces in the html editor is not actually adding ‘spaces’ as such. If you want to ad a break for paragraph in html editor you should use an html break ( <br> ) Switching between html editor and visual editor when editing content is not best practice to be honest. best to use the visual editor unless you are comfortable with html
#23 JEllery about an hour ago
@Freisia Putting spaces where I want in the visual editor doesn’t work for me unfortunately
#24 JEllery about an hour ago
@platts05 ah okay, I am becoming more comfortable with HTML so i guess it is a learning process. Thanks man
#25 platts05 about an hour ago
@JEllery Yea exactly mate. When I was starting out one thing I tried to do was write a whole blog post (images and all) with only the html editor. this is difficult to start with but pays off in the long run. trust me.
Wealthy Affiliate has an inner network system, like social media platforms. You can follow others, get followed by, and interact with them personally by using the…
You can send private messages to anyone, both people you follow, and others that you don’t follow. A very flexible mechanism to speed up your communications.
Every member has a profile page. It displays their network (who they follow, who follows them), their posts in the community, their trainings, their questions, their links to their websites. Many people leave comments on profile pages, interacting in a different way than the live chat.
There are 13 interactive classrooms within the WA platform where members post their questions, videos, courses, tutorials, trainings.
- #1 Getting started
- #2 WA affiliate program
- #3 Keyword, niche, and market research
- #4 Everything WordPress
- #5 Authoring and writing content
- #6 Search engine optimization
- #7 Social engagement and marketing
- #8 Website development and programming
- #9 Local marketing
- #10 Video marketing
- #11 Email marketing
- #12 The WA platform
- #13 Pay per click marketing
I have already reviewed the classrooms and you can access the page using the button below
My Experience – Verdict
I’ve used all the WA community features countless times especially when I got started. Yes, it’s very important to get timely help when you start an online business. You can’t go alone. Besides, this is part of the human nature, people need help, no one ever succeeded alone, and if someone says so, this is a lie.
I used the live chat to interact with people, to make connections, and most importantly to get help with technical stuff. I needed to know how to operate WordPress, how to create menus, links, pages, posts, how to find images.
The help you get from other members using the live chat is fast. Sometimes you have to wait longer, as the chat room is not always crowded, but the average response time is only a few minutes.
I used the private messaging system to get in touch with buddies like I do on social media.
I interacted in the classrooms to get exclusive help on top marketing topics.
I use the forum for inspiration, to participate with my comments, and to offer my help as well.
Now as concerns the number of WA members being active I estimate that is around 20,000 to 50,000. WA mentions 800,000 members but I guess this number includes members that are not currently active in the community or even others that canceled their membership. Anyway, is a very interactive community with tens of thousands of active members, which is quite a big number for a marketing platform.
Now, after 3 years of using the WA platform, I can confidently say that I owe my online success to this beautiful community. WA is truly a pay it forward platform, you don’t feel you interact with competitors, instead, you give and receive help, and that leads to mutual success.
That’s it, another review has finished, here on Web Market Support. I am waiting for your comments and thoughts. Till next time…
This is the WA Community
