Please share this post!

In an effort to help you learn how to sign up for your 100% free Wealthy Affiliate Starter membership, I have put together a video series entitled Wealthy Affiliate How To’s. These videos will give you an inside look into the Wealthy Affiliate platform, and this video in the series will show you how to add your profile picture and information, and why it’s so critical to your success!

Inside Wealthy Affiliate – Adding Your Profile

In my last video here, I showed you how easy it is to sign up for a free Starter membership.  If you missed it, you can view that video here:

In my new video, I give you an overview of setting up your profile.

In the video, I set up a new profile, and for ease of viewing and illustration purposes, I do not go into the detail I would hope you would go into in writing your description.  (My actual personal profile gives much more detail which I’ve included below this video so you can see it.)  You get an inside look into my personal account (shhhh it’s a secret lol).

Ok, but first, this brief video will give you the instructions in how to set up your profile. Take a look:

As promised in the video above, here is a link to the Wealthy Affiliate Walk-Through Video page so you can see if for yourself.  Just click below here to be taken to the page inside the platform:

Make more money with a complete profile

There are several benefits to adding your profile information, and making more money is one of them. I know that sounds strange, but let me explain.

Wealthy Affiliate is a huge platform with thousands and thousands of members. That is a big audience all in and of itself. Think about what you’re trying to do with your affiliate marketing. You’re trying to drive traffic to your site for the purpose of getting people to read your content and purchase products you are promoting.

Well, you’ve got a huge built-in audience right inside the Wealthy Affiliate platform. These are people who get it. You can get a ton of interest and traffic right from the membership, so you want to make sure you engage people, and a complete profile with a picture and a description, is the first step.

There are numerous ways to get people to your site (drive traffic), and I’ve outlined them in this article here that you should take a look at when you get a minute. I think you’ll find it helpful:


“Connect” with the other members

There are several ways to engage other members to draw interest in your site and your posts. The first is by “following” other members and building your network. It’s simple, and the platform is always helping you to do that by popping up new members in front of you.

Whenever you sign into the platform, you’ll be greeted with the new Premium members immediately. You simply click on the green arrow and you’re connected! It’s super easy!

Write a blog post on Wealthy Affiliate

Blogs are constantly flowing through the Dashboard of Wealthy Affiliate. Wealthy Affiliate is one of the most popular websites on the internet, and if you want to be seen by a lot of people, blog away! You can blog about just about anything. There are a few restrictions, they don’t want politics or religion (not looking for controversy on the platform), but pretty much anything else goes.

People blog about all kinds of things, and then other members engage with them on their blogs. It’s a great way to get information out to the crowd, and you can link to your blog from your website as well. It’s also a wonderful way to start to build relationships inside the platform.

Connect with people on the profile pages

You want an engaging profile page, one that invites people to connect with you. On the same note, take a look around the site at other members’ pages and be sure to connect with them there as well. There are so many knowledgeable marketers on the platform, let me tell you, you will learn a lot!

I’ve had other marketers offer me free programs, free email templates, free cartoons for my sites, and advice and guidance on technical issues.

The thing is, these people may be successful and making a lot of money, but they are the most giving, friendly, helpful people I’ve ever met. It’s rather astounding because you would think there would be competition, but the way people look at it is, there is enough business out there for everyone!

Here’s my profile page on Wealthy Affiliate:

Answer people when they connect

People on the platform will private message you, respond to a comment you’ve made on a blog post, and leave you messages on your profile page! Respond! Don’t leave people hanging! Take the time to answer people and be helpful. This type of behavior will not only improve your “Rank” in Wealthy Affiliate, but it will open you up to the potential to have someone help you out when you need it.


I think you know the conclusion. If you haven’t realized it yet, I’m pretty sure you’ve come to recognize that the Wealthy Affiliate platform is the real deal. If you haven’t, continue on with this series, to learn more about the program, and continue to get the behind-the-scenes peeks at the platform that I will provide to you!
