Hi Coach

I have been extremely challenged in getting back to choosing my theme. I started clicking on a few i liked and then logged out and next day could not get back to where the themes are to choose from. I have asked the community and the support, but not any luck thus far??
so I have been stuck here seeking around trying to find my word press dashboard to get to my themes and no luck there either?? Can you help me this task?

affilicoach Premium
Hey Leesa,

I usually just find themes under the various theme "headings", Featured, Popular, Latest and Favorites.

Other than that I enter a keyword in the search box to the right of the themes headings and pick from their.

Hope that helps.

What's goin on Frank, you may not remember me, but I was learning from you like a couple of years back. I'm Ethan, and I hope I'll be able to stick around and learn a lot more and hopefully make some sales this time. As a matter of fact, I will be trying me damnest to hold on with this and make it till I see results. I used to think that I couldn't afford traffic and didn't know that I could still afford to be an affiliate marketer. I'm starting to want to do high ticket sales only and use text marketing at only 33$ for 200 texts a day for each website. Currently doing four websites. Atleast, that is what I have in my plans and goals.

Hey Ethan,

Welcome back man.

I do remember your name and yes, it has been a while.

Remember WA is more focused on SEO and converting that sort of traffic, along with PPC with Adwords etc, but if you can get paid traffic to work for you then that's great and definitely worth pursuing.

Sir Frank, Good day, which.one should I finish first, my training or becoming a premium member? I have seen that i have received some points in the premium including discounts that I haven't understood fully even if i had read each indication. if i become a premium member, what then ,would be my liability and benefits.Thanks so much and God bless.

Hi Rosalinda,

The first 10 lessons in WA are free and you can definitely learn a lot from those lessons. They are a glimpse into the premium membership (which gives you access to all the training modules as well as hosting) and is also a continuation from the lessons.

As you may have already determined, the idea with the training is to learn and implement what you learn at the same time, resulting in you knowing how to create a making money website as well as make money along at the same time.

Just stay on as a free member for as long as you want, and until the training makes sense, then, if you're comfortable moving to the premium membership then you can do that.

Hope that helps.

One thing that worries me is WA want me to pay $379. This money I don´t have right now because my budget don´t allow me that. Family members attitude is that doing training/business like this never will pay off and that this is a luxury that there is no room for in our common budget. But the monthly $49 I will put aside to pay.
Just wanted you to know.

Hey, that's no problem at all Ronald, you certainly don't have to upgrade to the yearly plan, but it is a good option for those who can fit it into their budget because of the huge savings..

Please just go with whatever option fits your current circumstances right now. Only you can gauge the real value of the course, given your first hand experience.

I look forward to your success my friend.

I was corrupted on many of the online money making options and lost a huge amount of money. if I feel satisfied with this iam ready to invest any amount in this.
so my question is without getting into a premium subscription is it possible for me to make money at the first stage with this trial version?
Reply
affilicoach Premium
Yes, you can earn money on the free membership. In saying this, generating money in the first week or month prior as a Starter is like having an your introduction course to becoming a surgeon and expecting to perform surgery within the first month.

The first month is typically your foundation building stage. In order to build a website that earns you consistent revenue, you need this foundation. After this, you are going to start seeing traffic and as you build this out, there are many different ways in which you can generate revenue.

When I first started online, it took me about 3 months to see anything really promising and by the 6 month mark I was seeing consistent income and by the end of the year I was earning close to a full-time income.

This program does work, but, you won't see the benefits immediately and you will need to put in consistent effort overtime. The rewards are financial freedom and you can scale your business up to whatever income you want.

You have me and the whole WA community behind you, so if there ever was a place for you to succeed then I believe it would be with WA.

But do upgrade at your own pace and take action on the tasks. Action is what will lead you to success!

Best,
Frank

Hi Frank,
I need help with my keywords. My niche is Breaking a mustang. I broke my mustang, talked about the history of the mustang and the Buffalo Soldiers and how they interacted; now I'm kind of at a loss as to where to go from there. Can you give me some suggestions on which keywords I should go to now? Every time I think I get the keyword and niche part, when I get ready to write, I'm confused again.

Also, how do I get the potsts on my website to start at the beginning and go in order from there? And how do I add the last post to the top menu like the rest? I went back through the training, but nothing answers my questions. I hope I asked the right questions.

Oh yes, what does it mean that Bing has my website on the second page and one of my posts is not indexed in Google?

Thank you in advance, Pat

Hi Pat,

I don't know anything about horses or how to break them, but I feel that the following words may help to at the very least spark some ideas for you.

How to Halter Train a Horse
How to Train a Horse to Lead
Bit and Bridle Training
Saddle Training
How to Calm a Nervous Horse
Horse Behavior
Equine Calming Supplements
Horse Training Tips: Hot Horse
Dealing With the Dominant Horse
Determining Dominance
How to Stop a Horse From Bucking
How to Use a Strap to Stop a Horse From Bucking

How This Anti-Buck Device Works

So I hope that helps.

Maybe I am misinterpreting your message, but In terms of getting your posts to start at the beginning, blog posts will ultimately just roll off the front page of your blog as you create more content, so there is no need to put them in any particular order - in my opinion.

People usually find your website from a single post on your website.

Here's some training on menu that might help answer your menu question. Hope that helps.

Mamabear01 Premium
Thank you. Yes, this helps tremendously. The keyword ideas were just what I needed. I guess I had a "senior" moment, but nothing would come to me.

I am going back over the training about menus. It seems like that might solve my problem. Also, had another idea, what if I changed my theme? At any rate, thanks for your assistance, I will keep trying.

Pat

affilicoach Premium
Hey that's not problem Pat, I'm glad it helped.

You can definitely change your theme at anytime, but once you start getting a consistent flow of traffic from the search engines, then it's best to keep it the same as a new theme can change the SEO of a website.

If you do make a change, then just make sure all of your sidebars and menu items remain visible the way it is on your theme.

affilicoach Premium
Hi Adam,

The name you choose for your domain name doesn't have to be keyword rich and in a way is not that important, because your aim is to rank individual posts as opposed to your domain name.

So I would recommend going for a (general) name that reflects the niche you're targeting.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Hi Coach, how are you? I have a quick question here. I hope that I'll hear you soon.

QQ: I already have the list of keywords that I can use, but, how do I apply those keywords? Do I need to change my Home Title to one of these keywords that I have listed?

I'll be be enrolling my self soon to the premium account once I'll be able to. Thank you for the great opportunity coach :)
Reply
affilicoach Premium
Hi Dione,

It's great that you already have a set of keywords to work with.

The way to use them, is to assign one keyword phrase to a single post.

The intent is to rank that post in the search engines for that particular keyword phrase.

To do this - simply include the keyword phrase in your title, in the first paragraph of your post and again at the end of your post.

Obviously, a bit of a crude explanation, but it is the foundation of ranking your content. You will get more detailed information on ranking content in future lessons, but, for now that's a good place to start.

Hope that helps.

Let me know if you have anymore questions.

Hi Frank, thank you for this, why I never heard of this before or where has this been? Do you know how many affiliates programs I have been checking out & tried and when I finally found your blog post; it was no brainer and I cannot believe with so much wealth of information & platforms to start with;

Are you kidding me, I have no words to explain how elated I am, to have finally found this. Thank you so much and I think many struggling online entrepreneurs like me, atlast have found a HOME and with an upgrade of $19.00 it is laughable. I have just started & joined and did not waste any time, freestyle for 7 days and check WA out, what you have been raving about.

Shout out to Kyle & Carson for their kind heart, hanging in there when others bowed out& flatly refuse to put their money where their mouths are. Heee Ha to Wealth Affiliate, first time happy online marketer and I hope and trust it will be a long lasting journey with WA.

Take care and good luck, Frank and may God bless you immensely for the work that you do. Regards, Zinzi Mdedetyana ( South Africa).

Hey Frank, the pleasure is all mine. I have a question I want to start a Blog on money, personal finances, making money online as my niches,so what do I call my website to cover all those topics. Does it have to be on those niches, as shown on the video or can I come up with my own website name? Please advise.
Reply

There's two ways to approach this, you can come up with a name that is keyword rich in the niche you want to focus on, for example, getrichonline.com or waystomakemoney.com (you get the picture), or you can come up with a name that is brandable, similar to other brands like Yahoo.com, Google.com, Bing.com. (This is covered in detail in the lessons by the way).

Hope that helps.

Hello Frank,

I signed up via your Stealth Secrets website last week, and are just starting to get to grips with all that Wealthy Affiliate has to offer.

You mentioned about making money through either promoting W.A itself or selecting a niche in one of your messages recently, so please excuse me if what I ask next is simply going over old ground. In all honesty, I can't help but feel like a bit of a fraud if I create a website which states that Wealthy Affiliate is great until I have made a significant amount of money through following their methods myself - so since I am at the very start, do you reckon it is better to go through the affiliate bootcamp or instead concentrate on a niche area?

Also I read on another website that last year W.A had a Black Friday deal in November, which temporarily reduced the price of the yearly membership - do you know if this offer will be available again in 2019?

Thanks A Lot - SIMON
Reply
affilicoach Premium
Hi Simon,

Yes, you could start with the Online Entrepreneur Certification course, which will allow you to work in a niche you have more confidence in.

You'll will find that both courses share similar concepts and the techniques and insights are interchangeable.

The difference between the two courses is that the affiliate bootcamp course deals with a known audience or niche (make money online niche) and promoting WA, and the Online Entrepreneur Certification course is designed for niches that you choose.

In a way affiliate bootcamp is a more detailed course because of this reason. But, ultimately it doesn't matter in the long run, because the overall concept is the same.

Yes, Black Friday will happen this year, as far as I'm aware, and as you say will apply only to the yearly membership upgrade.

Hope that helps.

Frank

Good day!
Okay so I have 2 questions
1)If I'm not a premium member does that mean I wont generate any income or I'll have to wait a while before I do?
2)What if you have a niche but you're unsure if you'll succeed..do you recommend doing some research on it?
Reply
affilicoach Premium
Hi Pearl,

The premium membership offers two main components that lead to making sales online. 1) The step-by-step road map to making money online using the WA process and 2) The insight needed to convert visitors into sales.

If the premium membership offered nothing else, only these two components, then it would be worthwhile. But, it also offers like hosting your websites, keyword reach tools, live webinars and more.

But, to answer your question, yes, you can make money on the free membership, but it will take you a lot longer, because of the reasons I mentioned earlier.

2) Yes, I recommend doing a little research on a potential niche to 1) understand what type of website you might be building, and 2) whether you can see some potential in the niche.

Hope that helps.

Best,
Frank

I've been working on this for 4 days now, after every lesson and all over the sight, says upgrade, upgrade, etc... the whole point of this is to try and make an income. However you want $20.00 now within 3-days its $50.00 a month thereafter . So just to ask what are you supposed to do if you don't have that right now. ????? forget the new person there will be another down the road we can get money from...
I understand this is how you make your money, what about all the hype. I'm sure now I have alienated myself from everyone. I'm really trying, sorry for the outburst.

Hi James,

Yep, the messages can be a little annoying, but, they're pretty standard in this business, otherwise this platform wouldn't exist.

Just ignore them if you don't have the funds right now.

You can stay on as a free member for as long as you want.

Access to the premium membership will help you to make money faster, but if it's not in your budget right now, then just roll with what you have access to.

I do have to say though, that at some point in time, no matter what you try online, whether it's WA or something else, that you will have to invest some money for either education and tools if you really want to make a difference in your life financially.

Keep in mind, you're getting both the education and tools (website) for free right now. And, if you're focused enough, you can start making money with the just the free lessons and access to the websites.

You will have to piece a lot of information together yourself, through trial and error, but it can be done. I did it before joining WA, so I'm speaking from experience.

You can still learn a lot from the free training and you will have access to a lot of answers by using the search bar at the top of the page and typing in part of your question.

Some answers require premium membership, but there's still a lot that don't.

Other than that the best advice I can give you, is to continue to create content for your website based on what you think your target audience would type into the search engines.

This will help you to rank you for certain keyword phrases and thereby get people visiting your website.

Once you get traffic to your website you will have many options to monetize the traffic.

Hope that helps.

Frank

Hey Angel,

No problem, just stay on as a free member for as long as you want. You can still learn a lot in the community as a free member.

I recommend using the search bar at the top of the page if you need answers to questions. There's usually a plethora of answers at your fingers tips.

Yes, some answers require you to be a premium member, but not all of them.

Your aim above all else is to create content that your audience is searching for in google, targeting keyword phrases that are easy to rank on the first page of Google.

Once you get traffic come to your website then there's multiple ways for you to monetize that traffic.

Hope that gives you some guidance.

Hey Chigozie,

I visited your website today, and so far, it looks like you're following the lessons correctly.

I'm not too sure what your niche is, given you only have one page publish on wealth creation, so, based on that one page and the title of your website, I'm assuming that it is in the "make money online" niche?

If this is the case, then maybe a better place to start would be with the affiliate bootcamp course.

You can start that here. If you can get some clarity around the niche you want to work in, then you will have a better understanding of what you should be writing about.

Hope that helps.

i visited your website again.

Since Google ranks your content based on words and various other word combinations, it is important to aim for at least 500 words per article, so that you have more chances of ranking for several keyword phrases.

Ideally, you should aim for at least 1000 to 2000 words, the more the better in my opinion.

In the article I read, you have some of the main points, but you could do a comparison between the older model and the newer model, as that should be of interest to your audience.

Ok thanks, and another thing is....am i in a right direction because I'm kind of getting tired sometimes in creating my blog because I have to face my studies here in the campus....and this promo to be among the premium members will it come back again in the future because i don't have any money to be a member now
Reply
affilicoach Premium
i visited your blog again.

You appear to be heading in the right direction, however, you need more content. Every post should have at least 500 words or more.

Ideally, you should aim between 1000 - 3000 words per post, the more words the better, given it allows the search engines to rank your content for more keyword phrase combinations.

The more keyword phrases you rank for, the more chances you get to rank on the first page of Google.

The more rankings you get on the first page of Google the more opportunities you create for people to visit your website.

More visitors equals more potential income.

Yes, you can definitely add Adsense to your website at some point, but it's best to develop your blog out a little bit, and start getting traffic before applying.

Sorry to hear about your situation Tiona, sounds like a rough time.

Unfortunately, I don't have access within WA to be able to help you with your situation.

All I can say if for you to just stay on as a free member and learn as much as you can from what's available on the free membership.

You can still learn a lot from the 10 free lessons you currently have access to, and you will still have access to your two free websites. So you do have the basic engine to make money.

You can also use the search bar at the top of the page to get answers, although some answers will only be available for premium members, there's still a lot of answers available for free members that will help you move forward.

You can stay on as a free member for as long as you want.

Anyway, hope that helps.

Hi Leesa,

In my opinion, the driver of your niche should come from a subject you're passionate about, or at least something that you can talk about all day long.

The domain name should reflect the above, but it doesn't have to be an exact match domain name, but more, something that is reflective of your niche. I always aim for domain name that is brandable domain name. (This gets covered in future lessons).

Hope that helps.

Hey Tom,

I visited your website today.

And it looks like everything you've done, and are doing is on point.

I did a few searches in Google to see if I could find your website for certain keyword phrases that I found on some of your pages.

One phrase had your website on the first page "affiliate marketing for a flexible lifestyle" without the quotes.

So that tells me that the health of your website appears to be good in Google eyes, which means you should rank without problem in the future as you gain more authority and trust.

Which leads me to think that you just need to keep writing more on topic, keyword targeted content that brings in traffic - but is easy to rank.

The more you write, the more trust you build, and opportunity you create to rank in the future.

Keep up the good work man!

Hope that helps.

Thanks for that. That is what I thought, because I use the same techniques on my mountain bike website and get traffic pretty quickly, as I can get to the 1st page of google easily.

Every niche is different in terms of ranking.

I just want to confirm one way or another.

Hey Victoria,

There are certainly a lot of other affiliate programs you can join in the fitness and food niche outside of the affiliate programs presented here in WA.

One of the most common is through Amazon. You will be able to promote all of their products (literally hundreds of fitness products) and get paid a commission on any item a person purchases through your affiliate link.

1. If you do have a domain how does that interact with WA if you register the domain here and build the website out here?

2. Have people used their own names as domain names if they provide services like Health Coaching on WA?

Thanks!

Hi Myrissa,

Question 1: There's two scenarios.

1) If you have created a siterubix website (ie) a free website and then buy a domain name, you can move your free website to your new domain name using the "Move" button. Once that's done, your old free website will default to your new domain name.

Or

You can buy a domain name and build a new website using that new domain name.

Question 2 :

Since we're endeavoring to rank on the first page of Google using posts, having a keyword rich domain name is not necessary.

I personally don't know of anyone who has used their own name as a domain name in WA, but, yes, you can definitely use your name as your domain name no matter what niche you're in.

Hope that helps.

Best,
Frank

It does thank you.
Expanding on question 1:
I already have a domain name. Can I build my website on WA?

I wonder if it’s a good idea.

Thank you!

Yes, you can.

However, you do have to be a premium member to have access to hosting etc, but once you are, you can add your domain name to your personal domain list in WA.

To do this you just have to change the DNS in your domain settings so that they point to the WA servers. ns1.mywahosting.com and ns2.mywahosting.com.

Once that's done, go to your personal domains area and add the domain to the list.

Here's the link
https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/domains

Here's a pic of where you add you domain name.
https://www.screencast.com/t/Hc41xkTNYr

Once you've added the domain name, you will be able to choose it from the list when creating your new website.

NOTE: You do not need to transfer your domain name across to WA to use it.

Hope that helps.

Will the “websitename (+ above affirmation)” be the domain website name?
Or can it be exactly how it is even though directed to WA servers?

I will be joining premium ASAP. I’m really glad WA exists and I found it.
Thank you for being here!

Not quite sure what you mean by "above affirmation", do you mean the Tagline maybe?

If you mean, should the domain name and website name be the same, then the answer is yes.

For example, my website StealthSecrets.com is called Stealth Secrets.

Not sure, if that answers your question, but, get back to me, if it doesn't, and maybe elaborate or give me a further example of your question?

Hi Affilicoach,

How's it going? I would like to get some advice about one of my websites.

I have got some great feedback from WA, but I need someone to be brutally honest about it. I understand that my niche is too broad, so I need some advice on what I can do with it.

Someone from WA said that it has good content that can be used to create several other websites. However, I would have thought that people looking for the relative keywords, would find the content anyway?

I'm thinking about giving up on that particular website, as it isn't reaching anyone. Unless you can help me with alternative options?

The website is https://clubnomnomnom.com

I would be very grateful if you could give me some pointers, I have spent a lot of time on it and want to make the right decision.


Thanks

Tom

Hi Tom,

I was able to quickly visit your website today and these comments are based on a few things that I noticed.

1) Your niche is very broad and includes several other niches in it.

When I first looked at your website I thought it was in the "Juicing" niche, because the most recent articles were about juicing.

However, as I looked further, I found Toasters, Freezers, Coffee Makers etc, which are great on their own, but attracts a very different audience.

Ideally, you should build your website around a single niche as all of your content will compliment the intention of the searcher, leading to traffic and conversions.

Remember what you're trying to do is to appeal to only one group of people and then expand into related areas from there.

Since you've written about Juicers and have a number of pages relating to Juicers, here's an example of a good affiliate website on Juicers.
https://www.juicerfanatics.com/juicer-reviews/

Really examine the website and ask questions like, what keywords are they targeting, how have they set the website up, what affiliate program are they using and how can you use the information to build your own.

Hopefully, this gives you some ideas of that you might be able to use for your website.

2) Your content looks good.

Your content is set out nicely, reads well and formatted well. So I feel like you don't have to make many changes here other than making sure you adhere to keyword and SEO principles to rank higher in the search engines.

This training may help. 3) Keyword phrases chosen maybe a little too competitive to rank on the first page of Google for a new website.

That's all that I have time for at the moment, but I hope this gives you enough information to move forward.

Best,
Frank

Hi I have a question about my niche. I want to start a business but it has not been started yet. I understand we are using affiliate links for products that already exist. Do you think it is wise I choose the niche of products that already exist and corresponds with the market I want to go into? Or do you think I pick a different niche? Still things I am interested in?
Reply

Hi Myrissa,

A niche is the group of people you want your website to appeal to, so my advice would be to build your website around the people you want your NEW business to attract, so that when your business is launch you will have an instant audience.

Obviously, in the meantime you can promote related affiliate products to the same audience and make money while you setup your new business.

Hope that helps.

I have a question I could use some advice on. I came here wanting to do a website focusing on making memories and living in a being present kind of way. Being with loved ones, starting traditions with family and spending meaningful time with loved ones. I have a list of blog ideas and can see how this would work well with affiliate marketing.

Am I being too broad in my selection of niche. Would this be considered "lifestyle" or am I not being specific enough?
Would love advice or an opinion ....

affilicoach Premium
Hi Ruth,

If you can see the business component (from an affiliate marketing perspective) in your chosen niche, and you can clearly identify the "pocket of people" you want to appeal to, then it's just a case of finding the starting point and growing from there.

The content direction of your website comes from gaining clarity around your niche, so a good exercise is to start at the top of your niche and then find categories (sub niches) and start from there.

For example :
Making memories
-> Making memories products
---->Scrapbooking
---->Tool Kit
---->Product Reviews
-> Making memories with kids
-> Making memories with partner

From reading your message, it sounds like you have got a good handle on what you want to achieve, so go for it. :)

Hope that helps.

Best,
Frank

Hello! First off, thank you to you and your team for creating this wonderful opportunity for others to pursue their own, unique online businesses with helpful training. I just have a couple questions I would like to run by you and/or anyone else that is willing to help:
1. Is it possible to be successfully even without the premium membership? I'm not sure if I will have the funds in time of the 7-day discount time period to join that status.
2. I've already started a blog on Wix (though I haven't published it yet), and I was wondering how can I get affiliates outside of WA platform? Or is it possible to bring that into WA?

Thank you for time and consideration!

Hi Gabrielle,

1. If you don't have the budget for the premium membership at this moment, then please, just stay on as a free member for as long as you like.

All of the knowledge to be successful in this business is in the future lessons and also working with the community.

The ten free lessons that you currently have access to, creates the foundation of your business and is a good representation of what the 40+ lessons in the premium membership would look like.

Apart from the hosting and community help, some folks become a premium member just for the lessons.

Once you have the knowledge you can virtually build whatever business you want.

2. Wix is a different content management system. All of the lessons in WA is centered around creating and ranking content in Wordpress.

You can copy and paste your content from Wix into your WA website. You will also be able to change your domain names DNS to point to the WA servers and use your domain name with your WA website (NOTE: this option is ONLY available as a premium member).

Hope that helps.

It took me less than a month to start earning money with WA. Wealthy Affiliate pays me via paypal monthly.

Having said that, if you read my bio, you will see that I was not new to affiliate marketing when I joined WA, so my income journey here is not typical of a newbie.

What I applied to my blog to make money though, is exactly what is taught here in WA.

Hi Paper,

No, unfortunately you can't change URL, but it doesn't really matter, especially if you upgrade and buy a premium domain name.

Your URL will not be the main keyword that you will be ranking for. Ideally, all of the posts you create in the future will bring in the majority of your traffic.

Having said that, if it really bothers you, then you could simply start again by creating another website.

Hope that helps.

Hi David,

I just set mine all to the US and I am from New Zealand. So a similar situation to you, (i.e.) I reside in a country outside the US.

The majority of online purchases are from visitors in the US however Amazon requires you to have a US bank account.

To get around that, simply setup a payoneer account, this will enable you to send Amazon payments to your payoneer account.

Payoneer will let you send funds directly to your bank account.

Hope that helps.

That is quite useful information for me, affilicoach. Could I generalize your words and use payoneer also for other stuff than Amazon? For I live in Congo.

Frank, I sent Carson and Kyle this: We're at a standstill here. The videos are not working, we get a little audio but nothing moving on the videos. We are desperately trying and wanting to make this work, but we don't know what we are doing and we're not really understanding what we are being told. We've never had any business experience., we don't have anything to sell on our own, or how to get anything going with Amazon or anyone else. We're poor as church mice and have no money to invest or buy anything to resell. We have about $1100 per month to pay all the bills and do anything we're going to do. We were told that we could actually continue on the free site but would succeed better if we did the premium membership. Our health isn't good and we aren't exactly kids anymore, so unless we can get something started here, we are dead in the water. We want this bad, and we're willing to work at it if we ever can figure out what to do. If you can help us get started, we want it. If we're going to be kicked to the curb, at least tell us so we can quit wasting our time. I don't expect to get rich overnight, but we have to be able to do something, and we haven't got the slightest idea what and how. Please help us, we're motivated to hell and back, we want it and need it, but I haven't got a clue as to how to do this. Just be honest with us...how can we do this. We will work and do whatever it takes but we don't know how it works or how to get started doing it. I'm sorry , we're just very frustrated. I believe there is opportunity here, and if this is real we want it very much. We're being told we're out of time, and we're no closer to getting this to work then we were the first day. Please help us.

Hi Karen,

Sorry to hear you're having problems with the videos.

You've contacted the right people namely Kyle and Carson, so let's see what they can work out for you.

Access to the videos in the lessons is the first thing that needs to be sorted out as they contain the most valuable information you need to progress forward.

If your device can run Youtube videos, then it should run the WA videos as well as they use similar video engines.

Often the problem is the device you're using, where the software that runs the video is out of date and needs to be updated.

To understand if this is the case, simply try running WA from a different device.

For example, you could be using an older PC or laptop, but maybe try using a mobile phone if you have one available, or a device from a family member (such as their laptop, tablet or mobile phone).

Simply login to that device and see if the videos work.

Let me know how you get on.

Hmmm really?

I have replied to ALL of your many messages Nicole. Do you read any of my replies? On one occasion, you asked me a question twice, that I already replied to.

I can also tell you for a fact that a lot of people have tried to help you in the community. You've even told me that yourself... so its a little disappointing for you to say that nobody gets back to you.

Now for your question, I checked http://Kissable.com and it is not available. Someone else has registered it. So you will have to choose any domain name.

Your website name is fine in my opinion. Traffic comes off of your posts and the keywords you're targeting, not the name of your domain.

It can take a little bit of time for the search engines to rank your posts. Often it can take weeks, if not months for your posts to rank. It is a continual process.

I've never had to change a domain name before, so I can't advise you on what to do, but you can talk this through with SiteSupport.

Feel free to leave premium if that makes you feel better.

Hope this helps.

Hi Frank! So I'm in the process of building my website but looking right now, i'm not quite sure if the title will be efficient. The title I chose is "All the ping pong gear you need" But I feel i'm not really helping or convincing anyone on why they should make a purchase. Would it be better if I change it to something like "How to get your game to the next level"?
Any help would be appreciated
Thanks
Reply
affilicoach Premium
Hi Marc-andre,

The focus on any purchase is usually as a result of the content in the post itself, instead of the website title, so you could go with the titles you've selected. "How to get your game to the next level" might be something you could use for the sub title? You can always change this at a later date.

I would be inclined to go with a title like : Ping Pong World or All About Ping Pong or Ping Pong Gear or Ping Pong Gear Reviews something like that. These would be good domain names too, if they're available. Ideally, you'd want the title of your website to be the domain name. (i.e.) PingPongWorld.com, PingPongGear.com, PingPongGearReviews.com

Hope that helps.

Hi Janice,

Yes, no problem.

As you already know, there's so many ways to resolve this issue. The problem is identifying your exact problem. So I feel the best solution is to give you as many options as possible.

What I would usually do is to change my post from HTML to text and then insert the amazon code in the post. This video is a good example of how to do that. Otherwise the next best option is to type "insert amazon" (without the quotes) into the WA search bar above and you'll find a plethora of training lessons from members who have had similar problems, and have resolved them.

Hope this helps.

One other thing, in the older versions of WordPress I was able to switch from; text - HTML if I wanted to insert content/images or both that's only available in HTML, don't seem to be able to do that either.

Hey Rocco,

Sounds like you've got a lot of stuff on the go at the moment.

From an online business perspective, in my experience, it is more productive to focus on one thing at a time. So the best place to put your focus at this point in time is on building out your website.

Everything else like facebook, twitter, instagram can and should be put to the side. Some of these will be covered in detail in future lessons, but for now, your website should be your main focal point as this will be your main source of qualified traffic.

Generating traffic from your website is a more long term and more consistent way to bring in free daily qualified visitors. So the sooner you start the process, the sooner you will get traffic and potentially start generating money.

Hope that helps.

You will have access to your website for at least 30 days. During this time you can move it to another host or simply leave it where it is and then restore it back with pages in tack when you get the funds. Must be done within 30 days I believe otherwise it may get deleted.

Hi Sami,

The best advice I can give you at the moment is to ensure you pick a niche that you have a lot of interest in. You don't necessarily have to be an expert in the niche, but it really helps if you have a strong interest in it.

Understanding the mindset of your target audience really helps with content direction and converting visitors into sales.

Hope that helps.

Hey Daniel,

Great to hear your enthusiasm.

Traffic is one of the most important ingredients to make money online, however, for long term consistent sustainable traffic generation, there are a number of disciplines that need to come together, (i.e) the authority of your website, keyword research, content creation and content conversion.

None of these can be covered in any detail in a couple paragraphs, but they are covered in great detail in future lessons.

Hi! Thank you very much for referring me. :) I am actually starting from $2.50, so I probably won't be able to buy premium in your time limit of a week. I'm sorry. I have been researching all around for good online work... I acquired a free Ally bank account, and am using a free Google Talk email phone. My pc has been acting up from Windows 10 updates, so it might crash completely when the next ones come around December 11th. I have to do some research on restore points and recovery which will take away from this business endeavor. I acquired a job from this really nice place for Transcriptionist called GoTranscript. Unfortunately, although the format is so easy to use, I can't really understand the accents of the transcription requests very well. So, I did one job for them, which achieved me about a dollar and then for months I couldn't find any audio within my skillset. I also acquired a job from CrowdSurf connected to WorkMarket for transcriptionist, but the times that my internet work didn't coincide with them and I only earned 7 cents. I was hoping for some quick money to help me to get started to find a more permanent online place. So, I joined Swagbucks- a survey-taking place. I'm not sure about Swagbucks... I was looking around today for another quick-cash place, just for a start, you know, while I looked for something more permanent. People were talking about selling emails, but it sounds illegal- so that was no good. I was thinking that dropshipping sounds like something I could actually accomplish. I think I could make money from a blog with Google AdSense on it. If I could just make a dollar a day and then scale up, it would be wonderful.... I used to weed at 25 cents per hour for my Mother, but it's winter now. I actually have physical money, but digital money sure is confusing... Thanks for listening. :)

Hi Aimee,

Sounds like you are endeavoring to make it happen. I like your "go getting" attitude, it will take you far.

When I first started making money online, Adsense was the program that bought in the most money, it started off a little slow, but when I made my first $0.20, I knew I was onto a winning formula. And it is only a case of scale as you say.

So that is a good avenue for you to start making money using the platform here at WA.

I look forward to your success. :)

Hi Israel,

I'm Frank.

I just finished answering the same question on your profile. But here it is again.

The business model used in WA is affiliate marketing. All of the lessons are centered around helping you to make money online through affiliate marketing.

The business model works, so it's a case of the time, effort and understanding you put into it. It is a world wide opportunity, which means you can make money from virtually anywhere in the world.

The best place to start is with lesson 1. From there you will be able to see if this is a financial vehicle for you.

You can start that here.

Hi, thank you for the welcome. I did actually want to ask a question. I am very eager to get started on the training but I just want to know if there is going to be a big financial outlay to start this up? I don't want to go through all the training just to get to the end and realise I won't be able to as I don't have the money

Hi Maree,

The first 10 lessons are free and they will give you a good base to start making money with your website. You don't have to become a premium member, although you will get a number of notifications prompting you to.

You will have access to two free websites that you can use to build your website and can stay on as a free member for as long as you want without having to pay any money at all.

In terms of financial outlay. If you like the free lessons and want to continue with more lessons, then the first month is discounted at $19 for the first month, then $49 per month there after for as long as you're a member. You can cancel at anytime.

Hope that helps.

Hey Isaac,

Good question man.

It's different for everyone.

Most folks who join WA know absolutely nothing about this kind of business so you're in good company.

We have people of varying backgrounds and age groups. Some are retired and some are still in school, so there quite a variety of people with different life experiences.

Some of the older folks don't use computers much so they can take a little longer to make money than younger members who are well versed in social media and modern technology.

Some younger people take a much short time to get up a running because it is almost second nature to them, whilst older folks can take a little longer.

So on average, taking all of those variables including age and online experience it can be around 3 to 6 months before folks start making money, but it does grow from there.

Hope that helps.

I do not have much knowledge on this topic but I am willing to learn provided that it would be worth it.

Please let me know on average how this works for a beginner like myself or if there is something else that would be more suitable.

Thanks Frank....so far my only problem has been the transfer. I have tried for 3 days. Finally researched and found that it was GoDaddy who sold it to me. I called them...they said I did not own "moabrocks" and that someone else had it for 5 years....I could not do anything about it...so, in order to get over this hump, I purchased another domain, "moabmemories" and it was immediately in WA's name, so now that task is completed and I can move on. I have a feeling you helped me, behind the scenes, with this problem...….

I am thinking about making a website on veteran suicide. What do you all think? I lost my oldest brother to veteran suicide in 2016, and I want to do everything I can to help others to cope with the loss of someone to veteran suicide. I also wasn't to help our veterans whom are feeling suicidal. There is a lot of stigma around this subject and I want to be a significant part in the change and growth of this stigma.

What do you think? Would this be a strong niche? How can I monetize a website on veteran suicide?
Reply

Hi Hallandra,

Whilst a worthy cause, I'm not sure how to monetize this niche given I don't know a lot about it.

You could always monetize it with Google Adsense, but other than that you'll have to do a little bit of research.

Monetization is dependent on your content direction as this determines what affiliate products or service you can offer.

But at a glance I found these affiliate programs.

These are some online PTSD affiliate programs that maybe applicable to Veterans depending on your content approach to the niche.

The time it takes to start making money is different for everyone because everyone has different niches and time available to be productive.

If you don't have the funds right now to move to the next set of lessons, then I recommend just staying on as a free member.

You can continue to build your website out indefinitely and then when you're ready to progress to the next lessons, decide then.

You will be that much further a head with your content if you take this approach.

Hey Frank, hope you and yours are doing well. It was an eventful summer for sure. Went into summer with no family(just 6 first cousins) but had absolute freedom. 3 months later I have 2 wonderful families. I was welcomed into my Ukrainian girlfriends family warmly(purchased a condo in Kiev) and I joined up with my now WA family. Got 40 plus hrs/wk to devote to WA now. Got my domain transferred, going with the WPress Personal Trainer theme(love it), got 300 workout vids being prepped by professional film editor friend from Australia and working with some other health professionals who want to advertise on my site. Got a ton of content to add to new site and want you to check it out in a few weeks. Honest opinion? Do you like WealthyHealthyAffiliate.com as a domain. Going to promote WA and my personal training, nutrition, and exercise therapy(separate niche website) for my first 2 sites. Full steam ahead, ready to break into top 20k ASAP! And for all its worth, GO VOLS! We gonna suck again this year, probably 4-8.

Hey Mark,

Ideally, you would create two separate websites. One for the "make money online" niche to promote Wealthy Affiliate, and the second for your personal training niche as the audience is quite different.

So WealthyHealthyAffiliate.com would work well for your WA website for sure.

I havent watched all the videos yet but how do you feel about picking a niche based on a Google Trend that has traditionally gone up very much in the September-January months and then dropped again in previous years, is that an indication on what will work this year as well in Your opinion?
Reply
affilicoach Premium
Hi Ingebrigt,

I never use Google trends to decide on whether I should enter a niche.

I would use Google trends to evaluate whether it would be worthwhile jumping on a popular search phrase that could be easy to rank for a short period of time, but ultimately my focus is on building a large amount of "ever green" content that will rank over time.

That way I will have a consistent flow of traffic throughout the year.
Reply
Hey, and thanks for the answer. To clarify, the niche or brand is a large, known clothing brand that sells all year, but it is especially popular during Autumn or Winter months.
Reply
affilicoach Premium
Hi Ingebrigt,

Based on your message above, I just wanted to clarify a couple things.

A niche is the group of people you want your website to appeal to.

For example, if you are wanting to have a website in the men's fashion niche - say sports gear, then the brand you want to promote in the Autumn or Winter months, will become part of the content that would appeal to that niche.

Therefore I wouldn't create a niche website for just that product, because it takes time to rank in the search engines, and by the time you rank, the traffic may no longer exist.

However, I would include it in my website as part of an overall strategy, where it makes sense, with a view of maximizing sales during those peak periods.

Allright, thanks for clarifying the terms. Although i at some level already know all that, its good to have someone clarify a bit to help get the whole picture clearly for me mentally. Cheers!

Hi Rodney,

Congratulations on almost completing your About Me page.

Usually, unpublished posts or pages get saved into the "draft" bucket. So you can look there first to see if it resides there.

If you created your About Me page as a post then go to All Posts and then see if it is there. It should have "-Draft" next to the post.

See this example picture.
https://www.screencast.com/t/rxwAJyPv0DOL

From there you can simply edit it and then when you're happy with it, you can publish it.

If you create a page then it is basically the same process only under the All Pages menu item.

Hope that helps.

Let me know if you have any questions.

OK, feel free to connect with me. I just created a website here in Nigeria with the intention of reviewing electronic gadgets for Nigeria consumers.
I quite acknowledge that there are existing major players in this sector, however, I'm very much eager to learn how to create a niche for myself, possible strategies to differentiate my service in order to be the top choice of visit in little or no time.

Also, I found the image I want for my sikhikundalini.com site--a mountain peak, but it is on a Blog of all things! Can this image be transferred to a website? I found nothing else on your list of website images that is suitable for this sacred combo--my profoundly integrated lifestyle of Sikhism and Kundalini Yoga, which has led me to the peak of consciousness, where I commune with divine entities with ease.

If you can send me the link of the website with the image via private message and I will see if I can get the image for you.

I chose the beautyspa website first because it has yoga as one of it's topics, rounded out by other activities that go well with yoga. But then found out it is for people who actually own a spa, which I do not. I was told that if I install a new theme as my default theme then I can delete the beauty spa theme. Please advise me how to make my new theme and website, sikhikundalini.com, my default theme.

Hi Gurupremkaur,

Here's some training for you.

I was super excited when I joined WA. I thought I would be able to keep my free membership and continue learning how to better improve my website but when I got to the end of the first course I learned that wasn't the case so I was disappointed, this fact forces you to go premium even if your in a situation when you can't. I guess that is why it is called a "starter membership" I start college this month and continuing WA on a college student's salary doesn't seem entirely plausible but I do want to continue with this program because it seems beneficial. I just wanted to call this to your attention to consider free memberships with access to courses and premium memberships still coming with all of its separate advantages in the future.

thank you for your time

Hey Darian,

I totally understand where you're coming from, and maybe access to more free lessons will eventuate in the future, but you can still stay on as a free member for as long as you want.

You would still have access to your website, but the other training courses, classrooms and live chat are only available for premium members, which I believe is fair, given others have already invested in the future lessons.

It is absolutely possible to continue as a free member, though. Have a look at this; it may be of value to you.

Hello there Frank, I have figured out my niche and I have created a website following it. I believe that Ultrawide Monitors will be a good starting point, as I am an adamant gamer and use my computer quite often. The idea of having an Ultrawide Monitor may seem silly to some, but it's an idea definitely worth investing in early as people are continually adapting to the technological world. You can find my website on my blog post regarding it. I would like to hear some feedback!

Hey Kevin,

That's definitely a niche you can explore. It sounds narrow enough, but you could also go a step up from that sub niche and explore the gaming monitor niche.

Start off in the ultra wide monitor sub niche with a view of being able to expand your reach into the wider gaming monitor niche.

That's what I would do.

Hope that helps.

Hey Frank!
I've had this thought for a while which I always wanted to start. I think you can call it a niche. But I'm not quite sure if it is. Do you mind checking out my niche that I plan to invest my time in?

Okay so here's the thing. I wanted to start a site which talks about Korean fashion. Since Korea has been famous for their entertainment (KPop - which is very big worldwide now) as well as their fashion, international fans regularly purchase merchandise from Korean musical bands and also fashion related products.

However, my niche is related to Korean fashion, which I know as a young woman would love to try. I want to have discussions on different apparel and maybe review different clothing products that I have bought from online stores that sell Korean fashion. Through this, I will be able to create affiliate links to products.

I know I'm not Korean, which is why I think it is more the reason I should be starting one, since other nationals will get a feel of how it is like to try fashion that isn't theirs. I have a strong feeling that people would be relieved to know that clothing products from a site are true and not scams. I would like to bring that to my audience.

Once I have found myself successful in Korean fashion, I would like to also include merchandise from musical groups and Korean beauty products as other niche, if that is possible.

Hope my explanation was comprehensible. Please let me know of what you feel about it. I would love to know your honest thoughts on it.

Thank you,
Panchali.

Hi Janani,

Yes, KPop is an extremely popular niche and becoming even more popular worldwide.

This is definitely a niche worth pursuing especially if you have an interest in it.

Yes, start off in the fashion sub niche of KPop. You could even break that down further into smaller sub niches, like men's or womens fashion etc or you could go even smaller if you wish.

The idea being to attract a highly focused small group of people in the sub niche with the view of expanding as you build out your website.

Hope that helps.

I cannot PM you so I suppose I'll leave a message here. I got your message about a niche to start. I have several ideas but recently, I have been very engaged in the CBD world and it's health benefits. I think I want to start there. I am big on mental health awareness and advocating. I have other niches that I've looked into through affiliate programs when searching in Google. What are you thoughts?

Hey Jessamyn,

Yes, that niche looks fine to me. From what I can see, some manufacturers of the oils are 100% legal in all 50 states, so it is certainly worth investigating further.

Hey Frank, hope you are having a great start to the week. Question? I am moving to Ukraine very soon. I believe WA would be an awesome opportunity for the very young and very highly educated young people of the country. Not alot of jobs other than IT and economy still in growing stage. Anywhere I could learn more? Should I obtain an .eu domain name?
Reply

Hey Mark,

Yes, WA would be a great choice.

I'm not sure what you mean about "Anywhere I could learn more?".

The best place to learn more about creating a business around the WA affiliate program or promoting WA to people online and offline is through the affiliate bootcamp training. In terms of a domain name, in my opinion you'd be better off with a .com domain name as you want to attract the biggest (global) audience as possible. .com's are the standard for most online business.

Hope that helps.

When thinking of a niche I wondering what I would be able to put out there with my current abilities, and I came across being able to involve health in my niche, but it feels quite broad, what do you think would be a good place to start in the aspect of health?

Hi Lorin,

Yes, health is very broad, you will need to narrow it down a little.

I developed an exercise that might help you to clarify the direction of your niche.

Be sure to do all four exercises.

Hello Frank,

I would like to ask you few simple questions:
1) Is it possible to rename the already created website _ I mean changing the name of the website?

2) Or I simply need to create a new one in case I am not satisfied with the first one.

3) In case of creating a new one (that it typically similar the former), how do I delete the first to avoid confusion.

I am in the Affiliate boot camp training and I would like to restart the process to make sure that all is well done.

Thanks for the support.

Hi Emmanuel,

Once you have created a website and chosen a name it can't be changed unfortunately.

Some people who have had similar experiences to you, think they need to start over again, but in my experience, they don't. What they feel is a problem, isn't really a problem at all.

Hey,
I'm new here and creating my first website and thinking of getting the premium account, but I want to know first how I can do with wealthy affiliate a website that is not a blog. I need a website where people can subscribe to my mailing list, buy my product (a course) and to register and log in. How to go about?

Hi Jerker,

You can perform most of the functions you have listed above with a blog.

Not sure about logging in and registering, but since you're already a premium member now, you will be able to follow the WA premium lessons to make money.

Hi Frank,

I have a couple of questions which i hope you can help me to clarify!

Are we going to be using word-press blogs entirely and are the websites/hosting on WA suitable for setting up eCommerce store fronts? (I noticed if we get premium we have our own email from the domain that we are using)

Are we able to link to a payment gateway or add to cart?

And lastly are we able to add ads to our sites to earn from advertising fees much like we will add affiliate links.
Reply
affilicoach Premium
Hey Warren,

Some good questions.

1) Yes, you will be using Wordpress blogs. These blogs will support eCommerce store fronts via plugins. And you will have your own email address from the domain you purchase.

2) If your payment gateway or add to cart functionality is supported by wordpress plugins then yes, you will be able to link them into your website.

3) Yes, you can add ads to your website and earn advertising fees.

Hope that helps.

L hope that you are doing well. Well, I moved my siterubix.com this morning to my private domain. That's the good news. The bad news is, now I'm missing the original site that was on there, to begin with? Do you think I might have forgotten to do something before moving it? I followed Kyles steps to the T.

Maybe you created a brand new site instead of moving the original over to your new domain. Best thing to do is to create a support ticket with WA Support. They should be able to help you out.

WA's ranking system can fluctuate from time to time, but I wouldn't worry about it too much it as it doesn't really help you to make money, but it more of an internal indicator of activity and helping others.

Hi there, long time no chat :)

Got a question for you. It's generally advised to keep affiliate links to text ratio about 1:100 or 200. What have you found is the ideal ratio for a page?

And does this mean different links, or the same link?

Example, does google consider 5 "affiliatelink1" links + 5 "affiliatelink2" links = 2 links or 10 links?

Thanks
Reply
affilicoach Premium
Really depends on the intention and content on the page.

For example, in some cases I will have a lot of affiliate links, if I am review multiple products on the one page. Otherwise I just have a few if I am promoting one product.

The focus should really be on moving the thought process of the visitor to performing a buying action, as opposed to how many affiliate links are acceptable.

That's my approach.

Hope that helps Ade.

Thanks. I think it helps. I always read these generalizations on "ratios" yet I've found successful page that seem to not abide by any ratio scheme.

Another question... do you add "nofollow" to your affiliate links? How important is that?

I mostly use pretty links to link out to affiliate products using 307. I don't think it's a big deal to use nofollow or not. But, yeah, as I say, I MOSTLY use pretty links.

Hey Frank. Question if I wanted to add photos or images in my pages after I publish them is it possible? While I was writing context I seen the button to not only add a photo but search for some too. The problem is that once I select a photo i was not able to embed it in my context page that I was working on, since that page was not yet postend to my site. Am I ahead of myself? Will this also come later in the training? Maybe I should just stick to getting my context unfer my belt and hold off on adding images. What's your advice?
Maria
Reply
affilicoach Premium
Hi Maria,

Yes, adding pictures to your posts after you have published them is very easy, and yes this will also be covered in future lessons. But generally, you simply just have to edit the post and add the picture.

The initial focus of the training is content creation which is why you haven't come across it yet, but it's probably not far off from where you are in the training.

The training also covers where to find royalty free images for your website from free sources. So something to look forward to.

Here's some training on how to add pictures to your website if you already have them. Hope that helps.

Hey Joseph,

Not quite sure what the problem is, but I'll just go with what I think it might be and we can go from there.

First, in Site Manager https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites, be sure to "Log in" https://www.screencast.com/t/vZcku7f5SSdI

You should be able to edit your website from there.

If not then you will have to raise a support ticket to WA support found here https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/support

Hope that helps.

Hi, Frank,
I went over the first few lessons and tried again and I'm in there now but I messed up by getting those domains. Because on the website builder it's asking what name do I want to use.
I went to a website that has the same name as my domain and it's Doctors and professional people there. Licensed!!! I made poor choices in picking the domains. I have to find out how to remove those from the domain page and get one through WA
And start with that. I can't believe how hard it is for me to choose a niche. So right now I'm at Answers.com trying to come up with some ideas. In about to pull my hair out Frank. Every time I try to think about a niche, my brain just shuts down.
I'm just stuck brother.

Until word press told me I had to install the plugins to test. Did good with the first one!! but not on the second. They sopped me before I completed the final step of installing it. It would not have joined together. And would have malfunctioned. Then something about a sandbox.

Hey no problem Joseph.

So what you're looking for is a keyword phrase that is easy to rank in the search engines, that once you rank on the first page, will bring that visitor to your website.

So the metrics in Jaaxy should help to highlight what keyword phrases to go after.

There's detailed lessons on how to use the keyword and write content in up coming lessons, so you can look forward to those, but in essence, to use that keyword phrase simply include it the title of your post, and first paragraph and you should be good to good.

There are future lessons on how to write content as well, but the structure in the beginning is not so important to pin down. At the moment just write whatever feels comfortable to you.

Future lessons also talk about writing in a conversational manner, much like we are doing here, so you will be just fine my friend.

Let me know if you have any questions man and I'll see if I can fine some specific lessons for ya.
