It sounds like you are a very savvy internet marketer Craig so now I have real suspicions as to why you with all your experience could only get one referral. I have to wonder what Carson is doing working with 25 Information Techies on a daily basis are they stealing their customers referrals? I am aware that IT professionals know how to create backlinks etc and my next question is what else do they do with peoples sites that have been left because their premier memberships were not updated.
Wealthy Affiliate does not steal domains…lol! If you clearly went thru the training which you obviously did not and the fact you were only there a month, were you looking for a fast money making scheme by chance? If you were, you made the right choice of leaving. There are NO SHINY BUTTONS inside Wealthy Affiliate. You were told at the start of the training that having your an online business requires HARD WORK, PERSEVERANCE, and the ability to not just simply give up which you did.
Analyzes the results of the campaign. Finally, you have to measure how your campaign has worked. How many people have opened the mail, I clicked or converted from your email?

Ray, As Malcolm pointed out, WordPress hosting simply means the servers have been optimized for the platform. WordPress can require a little extra care to improve its security and performance, but most any shared hosting plan can accommodate it. If I were to recommend one budget host it would be SiteGround. You can set up a few installs on one of their basic plans and support is quite good. If you’re serious and willing to spend a bit more, Flywheel is a fantastic option from a performance, security and support standpoint, but you’d be limited to one site. My 2 cents.
In the 19th century, the American retailer, Aaron Montgomery Ward, believed that using the technique of selling products directly to the customer at appealing prices could, if executed effectively and efficiently, revolutionize the market industry and therefore be used as a model for marketing products and creating customer loyalty. The term "direct marketing" was coined long after Montgomery Ward's time.
