There’s no doubt that Wealthy Affiliate is the forum is where a lot of productive net marketers cut their teeth. Travis Sago and Jennifer Ledbetter AKA Pot Pie Girl are just a couple of well-known and extremely effective marketers who learned a lot of their craft over at WA. There’s training accessible on nearly each and every facet of IM: Pay-per-click campaigns, article advertising, creating sales pages–you name it, it’s at WA. There amongst the lots of written tutorials obtainable for members are also several video tutorials also, which is some thing I come across invaluable, particularly when learning new software programs.
So, with all this excellent stuff going on, with a track record of producing quite profitable members, why inside the world would I ditch an established forum for example Wealthy Affiliate with thousands of pleased members for a reasonably unknown forum with 130 members run by 1 guy, Roger Rowe.
For me, WA was fairly overwhelming. There was no real step-by-step instruction for an individual just beginning out in IM like I was. Now there are lots of tutorials in WA accessible to all, but to get to the real blood-and-guts stuff, the info that you simply truly wanted to discover out, it meant that you simply had to pay additional. Pay to be certified in article advertising, pay to be certified in PPC, etc. Never just a “Here is precisely what you have to do.” There was a lot of wonderful info within the totally free tutorials, sadly never truly sufficient to point you within the correct direction. But just sufficient to make you would like to drag out that credit card 1 extra time to take that additional advertising course.
It’s no secret that a lot of of the members of My Affiliate Apprentice are former members of Wealthy Affiliate. The comment that has stricken me time and time once more by quite a few of these ex-members is really a variation on this 1: “I have learned a lot more here at My Affiliate Apprentice, and accomplished far more in a month than I had in a year (two years, etc) over at WA.” Why then did they stay at WA so lengthy if they had been seriously accomplishing so small?
Quite a few of the ex-WA members had fallen into the trap of the totally free hosting provided at WA as a reason to continue their membership. Or they believed the gospel of those preaching that totally free platforms including Squidoo are a solid method to construct a company.
Despite what appears at 1st glance a pretty generous feature of WA, totally free hosting of any sort isn’t what it is best to be building the pretty foundation of your enterprise on; you need to have your own web site and paid hosting. The dilemma with totally free hosting is this: You do not definitely have control over your own content. If your nice host suddenly decides that they’ll no longer host your specific sort of niche-related content, you might be out-of-luck. The nice folks over at WA also “generously” supply members a list of key phrases for particular niches. This typically doesn’t work in a new affiliate’s favour either. Commonly, when keyword lists are supplied, it’s to maintain affiliates away from much better key phrases with a higher search volume. Are the alarm bells beginning to ring now?
And you’ll find plenty of debates over at WA. Endless debates akin to the eternal debate over how a lot of angels can dance on the head of a pin. For instance, the “duplicate content” debate. Pages and pages over at WA are devoted to debates including this 1. Rather than stepping in and ending rumours and innuendo about what duplicate content (or whatever the subject occurs to be) and clarifying for members what is genuinely true and what is bull excrement on the topic, the founders of WA just permit these debates to go on and on. Generally, there’s nothing written of substance in these matters at all. And God forbid if a noob dares ask a question that may well have been discussed two or 3 years ago! Noobs need to know their place at WA!
In contrast, over at My Affiliate Apprentice, the emphasis is a lot more on how-to, not on why-to, or lengthy debates about issues that do not actually matter. Roger only introduces strategies that he has personally tested and discovered to be efficient to members.There’s really a thread in dedicated to the newest of the new at My Affiliate Apprentice referred to as: “Getting Began at My Affiliate Apprentice.” In it you will be pointed to the exact written and video tutorials of what you’ll want to know, no hunting around by means of endless threads attempting to come across what you know.
As you construct abilities and confidence in website building, the tutorials ramp up too. You’ll find tutorials on topics like building niche portal internet sites, and sophisticated back linking methods to push your new internet sites up within the search engine rankings. You’ll find step-by-step video tutorials that can teach you to use your tools with devastatingly successful precision. You will see reviews and tutorials of recommended tools, at MAA but you’re never pushed to get anything, unlike at several other forums. You’ll never, ever see any sales pages in “screaming red” imploring you to get the newest as well as the greatest tools and courses of dubious value. You will discover no member affiliate links allowed at My Affiliate Apprentice. Period.
Your every single question might be answered speedily and thoroughly by Roger himself, or by 1 of the 3 moderators at MAA. You never require to really feel too intimidated or foolish to ask a question at MAA. The provide of Roger’s along with the moderators assist is genuine; not merely a ploy to empty your wallet. If you’re having complications, they’ll go above and beyond to support you.
Roger and I have had lots of sessions on Skype when I’m having difficulty with a web site, and he and also the moderators will do the exact same for you. I’ve never seen offers like that on huge forums like WA.
So, in a nutshell, real assist from folks like Roger who actually cared about whether or not or not I succeeded, made all of the distinction to me in which forum I was going to lay down my dollars for. And it could make all the distinction to your success in world wide web advertising also.
