In this text you have Wealthy Affiliate secret exposed, and with this I mean that I am able to describe why this hosting platform has been so truly successful.
It turns out that this is all about rather elementary human psychology. Alfred Adler describes this as will to power, and he developed the concept introduced by Nietzsche. You can describe this also by human natural desire for competition. But let me present this in simple terms.
The reason for writing about this is the following. There was a question recently within Wealthy Affiliate community about why people really choose Wealthy Affiliate web hosting. Members were asked to give only one major reason.
So indeed this was an interesting question, and after some thinking I myself have made up my mind about it, but not easily indeed. The reason being: after such a long period at WA, there are so many good sides of this site hosting platform to consider.
See below what my answer is and why you also might want to join Wealthy Affiliate.
[Bach – Wir setzen uns mit Tränen nieder (Matthäus-Passion)]
To understand my answer to the starting question about why people choose Wealthy Affiliate web hosting, you may have a look into my WA profile page:
As you may see, up to the moment of writing this text, I have published 101 blog at Wealthy Affiliate, and I have asked questions 93 times.
We are coming to the point. See the part of the list of my 93 questions, these are some of my most recent ones:
The numbers on the right show the amount of responses to my questions. This is the point, and this is the secret of Wealthy Affiliate. You are not alone. Somebody is always there to help. No one of my many questions has ever remained unanswered.
Why is everybody so helpful? Wealthy Affiliate exposed.
So is Wealthy Affiliate the largest Samaritan community on the Earth? Not really, it is about something else.
People love to see themselves ranked high, regardless what this is about. Remember what I have said above, will to power, desire for competition. But this is all natural (read Adler for more). We all know how it works in sport, it is about competition.
See below the top of the list, top 10 members who have the rank of ‘ambassadors’ (there are 25 of them in total), the owners of WA are on the positions 1 and 2:
The Wealthy Affiliate system is organized in such a way that when you help somebody this is registered in the system and you get credits.
What does this mean? Well, people ask questions, others help and get some credits for this. There is also system of ‘likes’. So you guess, by getting ‘likes’ you improve your status.
But this is not all. Members are allowed to write
- blogs (you have seen my number of blogs),
- trainings, and
As you can imagine, this all brings credits and likes, your rank becomes higher. Very simple and clever. Besides, you get some small amount of money if you write a training or tutorial.
There are thousands of active members at Wealthy Affiliate, at all levels of experience. Many need help, and WA owners would need an army of personnel to support the members. But as you see there is no need for that. Answers to my questions shown above are from other WA members. But it is fair to say, I have answers from Kyle as well (one of the WA owners).
So, members support each others. This means far less work for Wealthy Affiliate owners themselves. All self-sustainable and efficient.
The fact is that some members want to help others because they were helped themselves. So as you see there is also a genuine desire to give something back.
This is why no other platform can compete with Wealthy Affiliate. The service you get here is excellent, the membership price very reasonable, no up-sells ever. A great site hosting platform, the best in fact.
When we become a bit more experienced in online activity, it is easy to forget how most of us feel lost when we start it for the first time. I described those feelings in my first post ever, which you can find within this site. It has left unchanged, I did not want to improve it, this is my first text and I wanted it to be as it was.
I am not a beginner any longer, but there are many details all the time where you need help. This is why my answer is: it is the help of the community which makes Wealthy Affiliate a truly unique place and this is the answer to the starting question mentioned above.
Regardless what you may think about motives which drive members to offer you help, this is a genuine help. I know it well, this is my own first-hand experience.
This is why you should choose Wealthy Affiliate web hosting if you ever decide to build a site and start an online business. To find out more about Wealthy Affiliate, please read my review.
Do you want to try? Put the name of your domain here below and will have your site instantly. This is free and this is not a joke, you can have 2 sites for free, but you can become a premium member later if you wish so:
Why do they give something like that for free? This is again psychology in practice. They offer much more if you join as a premium member, and they know you will join, sooner or later. You do not have to, you can remain a free member forever. But I do not think that many remain in this status.
So, I hope you find this text useful. Is Wealthy Affiliate secret exposed enough in this text? Did you realize how this all works? If so try it yourself and please share this text with others.
