Inside Wealthy Affiliate – Adding Your Profile

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.

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.

Born in Texas, raised in upstate New York, I have been marketing for my entire adult life.I have decided to share all the information I have gathered on what works in affiliate marketing, and what doesn't because I want to let the world know that working online gives you the freedom to work from anywhere, and that is exactly what I do!

Starting out can be tough, I know, so I will also be sharing lots of free resources to get you going.I am dedicated to providing this information to my readers, and I hope you always feel free to reach out to me.

Thanks for visiting my page!


  1. Thanks for making this post! Im new to affiliate marketing and wealthy affiliate so this applies to me. After reading your article, I decided to not only make my profile on WA but also made a quick post of my profile in my website just to have it out there and to make readers know that there is a real person who is making the website and not a big coorporate. 

  2. Well this site is very informative and its nice to see the face of who’s speaking, wealthy affiliate seems to offer everything you need to get started and then some.

    The only thing if you can I might change is your typing seems to be really loud compared to your voice.  Might not be anything you can fix though.

    1. Yes, I’m new to the whole video thing, and I don’t exactly know how to remedy the typing except to stop the recording, type and then come back to it.  LOL.  I’m sure I’ll figure it out as I go along.  – Babs

  3. Babs, you have such an easy manner of speaking in your videos, and you are lovely to listen to! Anyone who watches will have no problem setting up their profile in Wealthy Affiliate. 

    I love how you point out that you can earn more money when you set up a profile and by interacting in the community.  This whole section is brilliant! 

    Wealthy Affiliate isn’t just about learning how to make money online. It’s also about utilizing them as a powerful resource to help get your name and site out there. I think you covered that so well and it’s a HUGE benefit that a lot of people miss. 

    1. The video is something I learned in Wealthy Affiliate – I didn’t realize how important it is in marketing.  I have begun to take advantage of it, strictly due to my training through the platform!  – Babs

  4. Wealthy Affiliate has been the best thing that has ever happened to me and I will forever be grateful to the person that referred me. Adding my profile was easy for me to do. What I love most about Wealthy Affiliate is that they offer the opportunity to earn and at the same time learn on how to build a successful online business

    1. I feel the same exact way.  I am grateful I found the program as well, and that’s why I love to share it on my site here at Coaching for Internet Marketers!   – Babs

  5. This guide would have done me a whole lot of good when I first signed up. I spent a good number of days trying to figure out stuff on the platform, and I still am. 

    This article halso helped me in knowing how to increase my WA rank, I used to think WA rank increases by having more friends. Now, I’ll interact more in the community, and offer solutions to people’s questions.


    1. Oh, thank you so much.  I hope to help people, and I’m glad you feel my article will be helpful.  That’s great, and exactly what I was going for!   – Babs
