Hi Frank, You have a great site, it helped me grasp how could I manage the WA affiliate linking to my website efficiently and as well for the content specially, the exercise. Could you have a look on my website and give me your comment? Thanks (My site https://thebestwaymakemoneyonline.com )

Hi Asamad,

It's off to a good start.

There's not much content there at the moment so there's not much more for me to comment on at this stage.

But what you have so far looks good.

Sup Frank,

I see that my intuition has, yet again, been spot on! I would say that I accidentally stumbled across stealth secrets , but i've quickly realized you had more to do with that and I thank you for it.

I am excited about Wealthy Affiliate, and I look forward to our shared success.

Hi thanks for all the help you are offering. I am struggling with finding a niche. I mean I like all educational things like self development, become successful, home education, family success etc.. But what kind of niche could I make out of that. I like that all around thing but is that a niche or does it need to be more specified? Or do you think starting off as an affiliate for WA is a good start up choice?

hello frank.

I just signed up recently, I didn't get the premium membership yet,
so my question is this, can I still make a decent amount of money without the need of the premium membership. I'm not talking about being rich, but would it be possible to get around 500$ - 800$
in 3 months from now.

Thanks
Reply
affilicoach Premium
Realistically no - not in the next 3 months.

Becoming a premium member gives you access to more tools, and the ability to have a domain name which ranks better in the search engines, but more importantly the membership gives you access to the knowledge you'll need to develop your online business.

Thanks for inviting me in! I was looking for a site that explained how successful and happy consumers were with Vindale, and here I am 2 days later.

I have a question, but I would not want to take up any of your time when I know that there are more pressing needs from others within your network.

I will simply ask you the question and hope that you can direct me to just a name within your network who might have posed the same question to you previously.

I have had previous experience with Affiliate marketing through Camazon and others like it. I also have brief experience with Adwords, as I have them on my business website now. However, I am taking the training and starting from scratch as if I have no experience in anything.

My question is: I want to start doing the affiliate marketing through the bootcamp. And as soon as I get that rolling I want to go to my already chosen niche. I want to know if that is a bad route to try to accomplish in my first 7 days? Or should I go to my niche, put in time on that, and then worry about the affiliate marketing later?

Please direct me to someone who can help me in that area of question.

Thank you again for this tremendous opportunity!
Reply
affilicoach Premium
Hey Keith,

Yep, worry about affiliate bootcamp later.

Essentially you will be learning affiliate marketing in both the certification courses and affiliate bootcamp, however the cert courses help you to develop a business within any niche.

So you'll get the best of both worlds.

You can start that course here. There's over 50 lessons. The first 10 you'll get for free.

Hope that helps.

Hello, Mr. Frank
I am really confused and really do not know where to start and what to do first
Shall I start with making a website only for selling products or it should be a blog with a shop corner to sell the products.
I do think I can make a blog. I am not good in writing new topics.
I am interested in everything related to the woman and baby. Is that a good branch to choose
also where can I get the product links to sell ?

sorry but really confused.

Hi Frank,

I've been checking out programs like MOBE and My Dot Com Business Dot Com. The testimonials coming from their affiliates sound so convincing and the products they're selling sound pretty good (products like "Local Marketing Hack" and Pay Per Click Tsunami). On the other hand, I've seen a couple of negative ads about these companies that seem to be coming from WA members because at the end of the article a pitch is made to join WA instead.

I'm a bit confused at this point and not sure what direction to go in. Are WA members just bashing these companies to get people to join WA?

Please advise.
Reply
affilicoach Premium
Hey Victor,

I can't speak for other members because I don't know what they're thinking or what knowledge or experience they have with the programs.

All I can tell you is my own experience. I have personally tried the programs you mentioned above, and whilst they may have some good elements to them, WA in my opinion is better value for money.

If you're unsure about what to do, then try them for yourself and then you can form your own opinion on them. You should already have a good idea of what to expect from WA with the free lessons and community interaction, so it's up to you.

Hello Frank,
Thanks for introducing me to WA. I know there are many things to learn in order to success in affiliate marketing. Hope you can give me guidance. Will you suggest I build the website using Word Press in WA or Square Space? I am new to both things but I am curious about which platform is better for building site for affiliate marketing and can maximize the SEO effect ? Will the Premium package in WA allow me to access more site building template and has many free plug-ins for me to install? Hope to hear from you. Thank you.
Reply
affilicoach Premium
Hi Lin,

My recommendation is to go with Wordpress, primarily because the lessons are created with this CMS in mind. Wordpress is widely used also so tere are a lot of plugin functionality available and help whenever you need it.

The SEO effect using Wordpress has been proven to be very effective in the search engines, so you won't go wrong there.

The premium member will allow you to access hundreds of premium templates for free, so it is worth sticking with Wordpress.

Hope that helps Lin.

Frank, I have a question about Empowr.

I found the link to you from empowr that took me to Stealth, where you introduced the WA Program.

In that opening you said that YOU worked the Empowr program and made some money with it, right? I have been reading Kyle's posts about scams. Is the Empowr program a scam to avoid or is it just that you have to devote so much effort into it that it's hard to reach any decent cash out there.

I have a trial period going on with it and need your advice.

Thx.

affilicoach Premium
The biggest problem I saw with Empower Network is that in order for a newbie to reach a decent amount of income you had to buy all of the products, which at the time was over $5000. I think it's more now.

It's a continual up sell where you don't get the information you need until you upgrade to multiple levels.

Where as programs like WA gives you everything for less than $50 per month.

Hello Frank,

This is what i asked Kyle and I would also appreciate your input and maybe go into a bit more detail than he did:

If it wouldn't be to much trouble for you I was interested on getting feedback on my first niche. The only problem with it right now is I am not exactly sure how it is going to turn into revenue. The niche i want to work on is a blog about getting into computer science for free online by taking free courses offered by MIT. I have zero experience in computer science right now so showing how to start from scratch and showing the answers to problems I ran into along the way seems like a worth while goal. I just don't know how free courses will turn into revenue beyond internet traffic because i am not exactly selling a product. Your input on this would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance,
William Brightside
Reply
affilicoach Premium
To be honest William, I'm not sure how you would turn your current idea into a business either, UNLESS you were getting paid from MIT to sign people up to their free online course.

But remember the audience that you will be creating will be interested in other products too, that are related to computer science, so you could maybe sell them products that are in line with that.

For example, laptops for students, programming books, network books, etc etc. So do a bit more research there.

Work with a few niche ideas, and sub niche them down. That way you will be able to get a clearer picture of the group of people you want to focus on.

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

Well I do have two other niche ideas that come from hobbies, the computer science one is one I want to pursue because that is where I want to build my carrer. For carrer building and also because that sounds like a niche no one else has really pursuing as far as free education goes. Thank you for turning me in the direction of laptops, computer parts and other computer accessories, that is something people will need to buy in order to pursue computer science as a carrer.

The other two niches are simpler to state, I have a passion for manga (japanese comic books) I would be interested in reviewing series and promoting physical and digital copies for amazon and try and stir up interest is a kindle specificly for manga that as of right now is only avalible in japan. As of right now there is a huge online presence for manga of translators and typesetters with a passion for manga that release scanlated chapters. The secould idea is updated reviews of video games for dlc, have you heard of the disaster of the game No Man's Sky? Well they released an update recently and have plans for more, most sites will never update their reviews so most people won't know when games with large dlc updates are actually good compared to the base game Diablo 3 made some amazing updates that made the game infinitely better more and more games will have similar experiences so those are two other niches I was thinking about.

Thanks in advance,
William Brightside

affilicoach Premium
Yep, those other two niches sound like good places to start doing some research around. Sounds like you have quite a bit of knowledge in those areas as well, which should help you to clearly identify the "wants" and "needs" of the group of people you'll be targeting.

Hi Jess,

Great to have you in WA and thanks for your kind words.

The best advice I can give you is to consistently perform the tasks on a daily basis that will bring you the most success in this business.

You'll get a detailed understanding of what this is as you go through the lessons, but in short, it is keyword research and content creation.

These tasks are like weight training for a bodybuilder, running for a track star, ball handling and shooting for a basketball player.

These are the fundamentals of this business and with consistency comes success.

Hope that helps.

Hello Frank, great to hear from you! After following your advise about creating a list of things I like, things that I think are cool, but don't know much about, and things that frustrate me; I've chosen DSLR Camera's as my niche. I've done a little bit of photography, and I know my DSLR camera pretty well, but I'm still new to photography and I don't know a lot about cameras in general. For my first website, I wish to provide valuable information to people wanting to purchase a camera, but I know very little about them. What can I do?

Thank you for your help!

affilicoach Premium
The only thing you can do is to research your niche and learn more about it. If you're interested enough in the niche then it will be interesting for you and a very natural process.

You need to understand the thought process of the people who buy DSLR cameras as this will help you to convert visitors into sales.

You may also need to go up a level and break your niche down into sub niches. Doing so will help you to get an appreciation for the content direction of your website and other content opportunities within your chosen niche.

Hi Frank One question about key words. I have registered with Jaaxy as directed here and put in some keywords. But how does it know which website they need to associating the keyword with. When I log in I have saved list but no site to connect it to. Thanks in advance for all your great help.
Reply
affilicoach Premium
Hey Dalip,

Jaaxy just finds keywords that you might be able to rank for in the search engines. How you go about using that keyword is up to you.

It can be used to register a domain name for your website, for example yourkeyword.com or you can use it to create posts (content) on your website and rank individual posts.

The way you do this is to use them is to write posts that are based on the keyword phrase. That content will then (overtime) rank for that keyword, which will then bring you visitors who type that keyword into the search engines.

All of this is covered in the proceeding lessons.

Hope that helps.

yourantiagingskincarepro.com. What do you think?

You're welcome Stina.

And yes, you are correct about keyword targeted domain names.

Targeting a keyword phrase domain can be useful for mini niche websites, however, ultimately, you want your website to rank for multiple keyword phrases, which means that you'd be building a brand instead of a mini website.

Can you show me where to find such affiliate programs like below:
In the past, I used to be an affiliate selling informational products relating to overcoming depression. There's lots of these types of affiliate programs online and it can not only help a lot of people, but be very lucrative given your background.

I also used to be an affiliate selling "Parenting For Autistic Kids" ebook which is a book designed to help parents deal with issues relating to their child.

So there is a lot of scope in the area of your expertise if you want to go down that track.

Hello Frank!
My name is Ashley and I just started here on WA last week and the information overload is real. I originally wanted to go into the self-esteem on appearance niche but it seems as if it would be hard to make a profit on it. My other option was to go into the memory improvement niche but I'm still lost on how to write a blog and if I have to keep up with it every week. So finally I've decided on joining the affiliate bootcamp. Will I still be able to make as much as I would if it was my own blog? I have the potential and drive to make this work and I am willing to work as hard as I should to reach my financial goals.

Anyway, I'll message Kyle and get back to you as soon as he gets back to me.

As I say it can take a few days for him to reply, but he always replies.

Hey man I appreciate you following up and checking in on me. So for figuring out how to pick my niche's I was just going to think of every subject that interests me personally. Then breaking down each of those subjects into a more specific focus within the subject. example I like anime but more specifically Dragonball Z or Deathnote so those would be my niche subjects. What do you think? Is that how you would go about it?

There's no real one on one coaching with Wordpress themes as each theme is unique and and developed by a third party software developer.

Each theme has a pre-configured comment block which comes with the design of the theme, so there's really no changing it unless you know how to code in CSS. But you can always select a new theme that is more conducive to the design you're looking for.

Hopefully, I've understood you correctly, when you talk about comment block.

If not let me know.

Hi Frank, I have been offline for a few days while helping my daughter's family as they moved through the successful birth of my 9th grandchild. Now I am starting back up and find that a domain that I was transferring to WA is threatened with removal before the process is complete. Here is what I am seeing from WA.

The following domain has webspace at WA that is pending removal. In order to use WA hosting, you need to have your DNS pointed to our servers:
Primary: ns1.mywahosting.com
Secondary: ns2.mywahosting.com
Please update your nameservers to point to our servers as your domain is scheduled to be removed in 7 days.
Domain Name Scheduled Removal
timbyersconsulting.com Aug 1, 2016 I can find no place to redirect the dns of a domain stuck in the transfer process. I have reached out to support and to the community but no response from support and the community tells me that they Know if must be done and that there videos to watch but none address a domain that is waiting for transfer to be complete. Thanks

Hi Timothy,

You have to go to the place where your domain name is registered and change the dns names there.

From doing a whois on your domain name it looks like ASCIO TECHNOLOGIES http://www.ascio.com is the registrar of the domain name. Which would be similar to other registrars like namecheap, godaddy or dynadot.

Why on a domain transfer, that has not happened according to Site Rubix, would I be threatened with removal of the domain that has not been transferred. When the domain transfer is effective, August 3rd, then it would seem there is no issue with dns pointers. Is this correct and doesn't the system recognize that they are dealing with a domain transfer that makes me pursuing Ascio Technologies, who I have never dealt with, to redirect the dns?

Thanks for the reply and as my previous email show I am confused about the process of domain transfer. I do appreciate your help in understanding but am finding that this is taking time that could be spent in other areas of my learning curve. One benefit is I am learning where to go in the WA system for help. I don't know if others find the path confusing but I do. Knowing when something will go to the support desk and when it will go to the community lacks clarity for me. What is clear is that there is a great responsiveness to questions within the community and I have to learn how to get through to the support desk on appropriate questions.

Hi Tim,

All I can tell you is what I am seeing in the whois information online.

Okay, so bear with me as I jot down some information.

This might seem like a running commentary, of my findings ...

Your dns name servers are NOT pointing to the WA name servers which is why you're getting the message.

http://screencast.com/t/1sOB8U1Gu

You may not have dealt with this company (ASCIO) before, but it appears that they are the registrar of your domain name as shown above.

The technical details of your domain name show Simplesite, who I suspect registered the domain name for you through ASCIO as shown below.

http://screencast.com/t/mYoiTYPCq

Okay, so digging further, they (Simplesite) disclose this on their privacy policy page here under "Third Party Disclosure".

http://www.simplesite.com/pages/privacy-policy.aspx

So this appears to be the case.

So to fix the problem.

This does not require a domain transfer, but a simply change in the name servers.

If you're no longer with Simplesite, then you really should have control over the domain name, in terms of being able to change the name servers yourself (in the long term).

In the short term you will need to contact Simplesite and ask that they make the change for you.

Just ask them to change your name servers as shown below and you should be good to go.

Primary: ns1.mywahosting.com
Secondary: ns2.mywahosting.com

If you have already done this, then wait for the change to take place.

It should only take 24 - 48 max (once the change has been implemented) for the name servers to propagate.

Let me know how you get on.

Hello Frank, I have another problem. I sure hope you can solve it as quickly as you did the last one. LOL
On my home page I am using the drop down tab for my posts. When I click on the read more tab I go to a page that says: Nothing Here then it says kindly search topic below, and when I click on the tab to search I get nothing. This just started, when I first set that site up it ran great this problem just showed up a couple of days ago. I did ask the community and the answers were not sufficient to fix the problem. site URL is:

It is midnight and I am going to bed right now, so there is no hurry for an answer tonight. LOL
Thanks

Looks like it's working correctly Ruby.

However, I did notice the permalinks needs to be changed to Custom Structure -> /%postname%

Hey, I hope you are doing great today! I have a quick question, and I shot it to Kyle yesterday, but never heard back. I've actually tried chatting as well, but can't seem to to get into the chat room:(. Not sure why, since my 7 free haven't ended yet.
Anyway, I had to re-sign up for a pay pal account, and was wondering if I needed a personal or business account, in case this thing flies? I would appreciate any feedback you can give me:)

I know think a business account is necessary, just a personal account would suffice.

Hello frank,
I am again having troubles. My URL show up at the beginning of my post and I can't get rid of it. When I go to my edit page the URL doesn't show up. I have read thing I can think of and I cant find the problem. It has to be in the customization process but I can'r track it down. Theme is: Iconic One. I made a screenshot but it kept getting rejected because it was too small. Site url

Hi Ruby,

I've never encountered this problem before.

But, you could try deactivating your social media plugin and see if that fixes the problem.

Hello Frank,
Thanks, I did deactivated my social plugs but didn't help. what it looks like is my permalink showing up at the beginning of my post. Icannot see anywhere that my URL should be showing up at the beginning of my post.

Hello Frank,
Problem solved. I deactivated my social media plugins in my customization page but I didn't deactivate them in the other part of the program. I guess the correct termonology is the back end of the program. You won't believe how many hours I have set here trying to find a solution to this problem. Anyway Thank.

Hello Frank!
I've seen that your WA sign up page has a personalized message for the affiliate that is about to join the program.
I also want to add a message like that on the landing page I'm promoting. How do I get that message there?

Thanks for your help! Tom.

Hi Frank, thanks for touching base. May I know if I join the affiliate bootcamp, would it be too competitive since so many others are doing the same? How much do I need to spend on traffic and normally what is the opt out rate like after people joins WA through those websites?

Most folks think that competition is bad, but competition means that people are making money in it, otherwise it wouldn't be so competitive.

However, what most new people do is follow the path that everyone else following, which ultimately leads to saturation.

So the simple solution is to take the road less traveled, which you'll find out how to do in the premium membership.

You don't have to spend any money on traffic if it doesn't fit your budget.

Hi Frank, thank you for your advice.

I understand that a starter member only enjoys half the payout for each WA sale made, until a premium membership is bought.

May I know if the payout for all existing recurring WA sale will automatically double once a starter member turns premium?

example, if I made 2 WA sales who stuck around for 3 months, and I decide to buy the premium membership in 2nd month, would the 2 sales in 3rd month earn me $22.5 x 2=$45?

I'm on a tight budget and I understand that sometimes result takes 4-5 months to show, so I would like to join as a premium when there are enough recurring income to breakeven with the monthly subscription fee.

Appreciate if you could advise. Thanks!

Good question William,

Whilst the logic of what you want to do makes sense, the reality is, it doesn't work.

In my experience people don't become premium members, if you're not a premium member yourself, which kinda makes sense - if you think about it?

When I first started with WA, I took your route, and whilst, I got people signing up for the free membership, no one become a premium member until I become a premium member myself.

If you've got the money, my advice would be to back yourself 100% and go for it. There are a lot of people making money with what is taught here in WA, so the blueprint is sound.

So it really just comes down to how much faith you have in your own abilities.

Thanks Frank. I haven't thought of that. Yeah why would anyone be convinced if I'm not a premium member?

Hi Frank this is Glenn I just signed up I'm looking for a way to attract some passive income into my life. I am a bit nervous I don't know hardly anything about affiliate marketing but I'm looking to start a passive income business for my future. How much business expenses will I be spending to make sa $500 a month ? Look forward to your reply or who ever else might have an idea thanks

To make that amount of money monthly, you should consider upgrading to the WA premium membership which is $19 first month and then $49 per month thereafter for as long as you're a member.

You will also need to buy a domain name which can range between $10 - $15 bucks and you'll also need to have a decent keyword research tool, which you get access to in the premium membership or you can upgrade to Jaaxy (a more powerful keyword tool) which is around $20 per month.

Having said that, you can start off free and then decide where you want to go from there.

Hope that helps Glenn.

Hi Frank thanks for your reply. So it's $49 for the membership fee $15 a month for the domain and $20 per month for the key word search tool? So that's about $84 a month what about per click costs or is there any? And how much time to generate $500 a month just an estimation would be helpful. I'm just going by if in start a mowing business I need a truck ramp gate mower weed whacked blower costing around $10,000. So I'm just trying to wrap my head around my start up costs and monthly expenses. Please be up front let me.know what I'm realistically look at.

Hey Glenn,

The WA membership fee is $49 per month.

Domain name is a one off payment of $15 - renewed once a year.

Keyword tool is $20 per month.

Those costs are the essentials.

How fast you generate $500 a month depends on the niche you pick, how much work you are willing to put into your business, how fast you learn and what you implement as a result. I know of someone who I referred to WA who has replaced her part-time job in 6 months as a result of the training.

I don't know how it will play out for you because I don't know you, but you will have one thing in common with her and that is you'll have access to the road map to make it possible.

Hello, I randomly found your website when I was looking for something else. I had joined MCA in August and I just now saw your review, but I wish I had seen it then. I have been through some of their training but since I am such a newbie to all of this, I have been very slow to start with them.....I hope I have better luck with WA. So far I am impressed with what I have seen! Thank you
