Hey Whats Up,

I am a big fan of Wealthy Affiliate having bought a few of Kyle's and Carson's products in the past, so I have no problem referring some of my peeps to the Wealthy Affiliate community.

Look forward to catching up you some of you.

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: Well, I am stuck again. I have tried everything to get links in Amazon (I was acccepted) but I can't even get a "paste I read one tip to try plug ins, but don;t know how to get them into my website I seem to have had some success getting them into my site, but they are in code. Really apprreciate any help you can give me. I have tried everything!.

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.

Can you give me the URL of the lessons you're using for Google Adsense?

Are you having trouble installing a plugin or the code?

Installing Google Adsense is not urgent, which means you can install it at a later date if you want to.

Yes, you can use the brand name of products in your post. It makes sense to use it in a product review.

Just don't use and brand name in your domain name.

When I go Into wordpress to edit one of my posts - I tick the required box then click on edit to open page; that far OK. When the page loads and I want to insert some HTML text, there is no header showing that allows me to insert. Usually, at the top of the loaded page there is a header which allows for a variety of other functions (le.) media etc. None of that is appearing. I ask can someone please steer me to what I need to do.
Thanks a lot

Hi Tom,

Have you managed to fix this problem?

This is a very unusual problem, and I can't say that I have experienced this in the past. However, I have had something similar and it was fixed via the Format box in the side menu while in edit mode. Make sure it is set to Standard.

If you don't have a Format box in the side menu, then the next best place would be WA Sitesupport. as they'll have access to your website.

Hi there Frank,

The problem still exists; sometimes it's there and other times it disappears. Wondering if it has something to do with the theme I'm using?

If I don't hear back from you in a short while, then I'll contact Sitesupport.

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.

It looks like it's (Wordpress) getting too techy for the average person like myself to understand and follow.

I'm not sure what you mean by your old theme popping up under your website name. Can you provide more details or a screenshot of what you're seeing.

In terms of Jaaxy, I'm not sure what you mean by the KQI telling you to get the QSR

Here what I see in Jaaxy.

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.

i actually have a question about the premium package. It very enticing, and Im more than likely going to sign up for it, however, say there comes a month where I simply cannot pay, do I just lose the premium upgrades for the month or do I lose all my work and content as well? having to start over?

Hi Kayla,

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, I'm doing good thanks. Thank you for referring me to the website, it really is quite interesting to explore and I'm glad I've been introduced to it. If you could give advice to any new member, what would you say? It is nice to meet you, I hope to keep talking.

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.

Hi! I have been wanting to start with affiliate for a long time now but haven't found one that feels right until now. I wanna earn so much money so I can have this affiliate business as my main income. Do you have any tips on how to get started with my goal?

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.

Good day Frank, I am well thank you for asking, how are you doing? Yes, I joined through your link after looking at your review of Karatbars. Very informative. This tweaked my interest as I am looking into an online business and making money online, but I have been burned MANY times prior to this, so I am hoping this is as legit as it looks. Thank you for reaching out, I'd appreciate it should you be able to make some time for us whenever to engage in this business.

Hi Frank,

I have been threw this before with online businesses, they promise you this and that. But when it cames down to help the just dropped the ball and leave you by yourself with no cue what to do. I am desperate to find something that will work for me, so that I can make a better future for me and my son. Is this truly the real deal? And how soon can I actually make some money?

Hi Veda,

This is indeed the real deal, however, it does require work. It is probably the easiest and cheapest way to start your own online business.

You're the best judge of whether or not WA is the right financial vehicle for you. So just take your time, have a good look around and evaluate whether it's a good fit for you.

I look forward to your success. :)

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 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. Honestly and obviously, I have doubts about how long it would take to learn and how much I'd actually make. 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.

I am handicapped and have a lot of extra time.

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...….


Thank you,

Janice

Hi Janice,
That's really great to hear. Any domains purchased from WA default to the WA servers to make life easier for members.
I'm glad you have gotten past this problem and look forward to you moving forward.

Hi Frank, wow what an absolute pleasure to meet you.
I’ll be honest with you Frank I’m already a member of WA through my other account Esau1 is my username, but I created this account just to specifically get into contact with you as I know you receive hundreds of emails a day.

I would love for you to coach me and it’ll be an absolute pleasure to get coached by the best.

I’ve only just started on my other account Esau1, would you like to coach me through there or through this account?
It’s up to you coach whatever’s easier but I prefer my other account Esau1, but let me know brother, stay in contact, cheers coach.

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
affilicoach Premium
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.

I am a healthcare provider and have little to no down time for reading, training, etc. But I want that to change.

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.

Sounds like you've been very busy with the 300 vids and I'm really looking forward to seeing how it all comes together for ya Mark.

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.

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.
Reply
affilicoach Premium
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.

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.

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

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

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.

Thank you Frank, I was ranked 2988 yesterday and then I was editing the content on the site I moved, then tried to get rid of the original content and add the new and it will not import to the site.
Now my rank is 3629 !!!
I will try the WA support right now. Thanks, my friend.

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

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.

AdeRobinson Premium
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?
Reply
affilicoach Premium
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?

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.

I'm back and all is great. I bought two domains last night

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.

If not let me know.

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.

Hello my friend. Well I bought this computer and I I've just spent hours trying to get it to work. I tried to contact the makers of it and it did the same thing that it was doing when trying to get here on the WA sight. Said that it was an not a secure sight. So I totally jump the gun on my thinking. I guess I'm still a little skeptical. But anyways, I'm in no way of being computer literate period.

Hi Denis,

Your niche is chosen by you.

It can be virtually anything you're interested in or passionate about. Or it can be something that you have a lot of knowledge on, that you could write a lot about.

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

Be sure to do all four exercises.

Hi Denis,

If you have already started a website, then that might be a good place to pick up from, as the title help trigger your memory of the niche you have chosen.

If you haven't picked a niche or can't remember your chosen niche, then it's probably easier to just start again, since you haven't created anything yet.

I recommend going back to the lesson on choosing a niche and going from there.

Hi Affilicoach!

I hope you are well.

When I try to type in my keyword to search for one of my pages in google, I cannot see it at all unless I use speech marks around it.

Page: https://mtb-threads.com/sealskinz-waterproof-mtb-socks-review

Keyword:Sealskinz waterproof MTB socks

I know it is indexed and my results from Jaaxy suggests that there are only 3 competitors using that keyword. So in theory I should be on the first page? Or am I missing something?

I would be really grateful if you could shed some light on why it is not up there.

Thanks

Hey Tom,

Your website is looking really good. Great content!

Nope you're not missing anything.

From what I can see (creation date), your post is still kinda new as far as the search engines are concerned.

So whilst it is indexed, there is another process the search engines go through which is ranking your content.

This is where I think it might be.

Let me know where it's ranking in a couple of weeks.

In the meantime keep producing more high quality content as this will keep the search engines bots coming back to your website for more content.

This sort of reminds me of when I first started. I had no knowledge at all, just like you, only a dream of someday being able to make money and work for myself.

All of the questions, you've asked are good questions. They are all answered in detail in the course lessons.

I'd rather not give you a watered down version of the lessons in a couple of paragraph as that will just lead to more questions of which you'll find answers to in the lessons.

You don't need to have a WA affiliate site set up to make money, you can do it with your niche website.

Good Morning Frank!
Let me ask you these questions real quick, So here we find our "niche" and talk about that on our website(which is something we are passionate about and or know a lot about, so that we keep our audience always involved. Something we either now currently are doing and love or something we've always wanted to do, Right? and know how to type correctly, ha ha, just getting going this morning, please forgive me. Then we will find things to sell on our website about this subject or all kinds of things or what's trending at the moment? And like y'all are offering, you'll get 50 websites and all the knowledge y'all have (as long as you pay your monthly membership) and you teach us how to get on the first pages of google , yahoo, all the search engines etc. As, well as all the knowledge in this world of "Blogging" (is what I'm gathering or not)
and we find how to get companies people to us to advertise they stuff to sell, and etc. Am I close? Which is great!! And or well buy stuff from vendors that you will show us who they are and where to buy things for cheap to sell, like do you have Companies from China and so forth with pretty much anything I will like to sell? Don't get me wrong I would rather give the business to right here in the states but, the reality is that I could only have to spend $200 there where here it would be $2000. Then after we say only used the premium for say a month or two we can be free no charge and still get what y'all say from you and also get commisions from anyone we bring here? As, well we can make $$ for sending people to this website as well. Plus we have to pay for a domain (which I know nothing about) there 's a lot more cost involved then what's being talked about at the surface right? Which I am not trying to be rude by asking I'm just trying to wrap my head around all this.
Plus you have to keep you site going 24/7 if your selling things,so you won't have time off. How does that work? Or will it be like an automatic repeat service and you will see you have orders by an alert and then you can get your orders out? Again please don't take any of this as negative, I'm just trying to ask all the questions I can to get it in my head correctly. Of course you teach us all the tricks of the trade so to speak. Or we could use this as a platform to just talk about the things we love and them let some people advertise on our site and get paid that way as well?
That's all for now Frank. Thank you again for reaching out to me.
Which I assume you found me from a key word or this keytail word thing , not sure what that is yet either?

Hi Michelle,

The costs are $19 for your first months membership which is discounted from the normal monthly fee of $49 per month recurring for as long as you're a member.

You can stay on as a member for as long or as little as you want. So you will be able to cancel your membership at anytime.

You will have access to hosting up to 50 websites as a premium member, but if you're not intending to stay long then I would suggest hosting your website outside of WA.

You don't have to get a domain from WA, you can purchase your domain with a number of other registrars like namecheap.com, godaddy.com, dynadot.com to name a few.

Once you setup your website, create content using proper keyword research techniques and get traffic coming to your website, it will continuously keep working for you, whether you are there or not, bringing in new visitors to your website each and everyday.

The idea is to promote other peoples products to the visitors who come to your website from the traffic you developed and earn a commission off of them via vendors affiliate programs.

We will show you how to find affiliate programs that have already been setup by vendor within your niche and all you have to do is apply for the program. Once accepted you'll be able to sell a number of the vendors products on your website.

There's a lot to it, but that's the general idea.

Hope that helps.

Hi Frank. I realize I shouldn't overthink it too much but shouldn't more thought go into choosing a niche than just choosing something you like or something that interests you? Shouldn't I also think about a niche that I feel comfortable writing many, many (hopefully interesting) articles about? And shouldn't it be broad enough that it can be written about extensively? I realize a niche shouldn't be too broad but I also feel like having a long term perspective when deciding on one is critical. Using one example from the training, say my chosen niche is organic cloth baby diapers. If I chose to create a website around this niche, how many articles can one write about that subject and still engage the audience for years (hopefully) to come? Thoughts?
Reply
affilicoach Premium
Hey Court,

Yes, to all of the above.

Hopefully, picking something that is of interest to you would mean that you're comfortable writing articles about the topic.

Ultimately the aim is to pick a niche that you 1) Understand the thought process of people in that niche and 2) A niche that you are happy to share your knowledge on and learn more about as you grow your website.

In terms of narrowing down your niche, it is best to start off narrow with a view of expanding your audience into related sub niches as you grow your website.

Using your example above, you could start off with cloth baby diapers go into disposable baby diapers, premature baby diapers, newborn baby diapers, baby swimming diapers, etc, as they serve the same audience.

You could also expand into other baby products to grow your audience even further.

Hope that helps.

Courtacus Premium
Thanks for the quick response. The way you explain it makes a lot more sense; I guess I was thinking about it in the wrong way. Having a narrow niche is good to start but choose one that allows you to expand later. Got it. That brings me to the domain name...how do you create one that focuses on a narrow niche but still allows you to broaden later. Do you have any examples of ones you created that you later broadened successfully? Or maybe some examples from fellow affiliates you've worked with?
Reply
affilicoach Premium
Go with a domain name that is brandable, instead of one that is keyword focused, that way you can expand your website in any direction.

For example : Yahoo, Bing, Google. Ever asked yourself what those names mean? Nope, but you still know who they are, what they do and why you would use them - right?

What about my WA website stealthsecrets.com. What does that mean? Nothing really - right?

Here are examples of other other WA members website, https://ivetriedthat.com/, http://onemorecupof-coffee.com, and http://survivingaftercollege.com.

Here's a good example of a non WA website. http://athletic-mindset.com and this one http://gymgrinder.com/.

I would play with names like, babygurureviews.com or everythingbabys.com as they leave room for you to expand in any direction. You could go with a totally made up name as well.

Anyway, I think you get the picture.

Just found out it costs $19.00, OUT OF POCKET to start this program. I have had bad luck in the past putting money up expecting results.
Please let me know when you have a program that is FREE like your EMAIL SAID and you can start taking "FEE'S out when I am making income with the business. Thank You! Danny

It is free to get started like I said in my email, and you don't have to upgrade if you don't want to.

You will still get 2 free websites to start you off, whether you become a premium member or not, it's up to you, but you can have the websites for as long as you want as a free member.

The first 10 free lessons are provided so that you can create the foundation of your online business and to make an informed decision as to whether you want to carry on with the lessons.

But more importantly it helps you to get an understanding of the thought process behind the business model. It's one thing building a website, but it's another, understanding "why" you're doing certain things

There are 50+ lessons available in the premium membership, and if you don't think access to that information is worth $20 bucks, then no worries, don't upgrade.

You might see it as being "out of pocket" $19 dollars, but a lot of people have made thousands of dollars with their $19 dollar investment.

But to be clear with the fees, in case you missed it, it is $19 for the first month and then $49 recurring monthly, for as long as you stay on as a member.

You can, however, cancel at anytime. So if you only want to be a member for the first month and soak up all of the information you can, and then cancel, you do that.

So it's up to you.

Frank, I am not able to go back to the spot that I left off, when viewing a video. It only goes to the beginning.
How do I contact tech support?
I did send this issue to Kyle, and he sent me a video on how to watch videos(not the issue)
thank you, Gerry

Hey Gerry,

I believe the video platform used in WA is Vimeo and I'm not sure if Vimeo remembers where a person has stopped watching a video. I know Youtube remembers, but possibly not if it has been embedded in a web page like that in WA.

However, the easiest way is to just drag the progress pointer along the progress bar and go to the place where you left off.

As shown here.
https://www.screencast.com/t/oRgWwFMO5j

Other than that you could ask in Live Chat if there is a way to do it.

Hope that helps.

Hey I am finding difficulty finding a technology niche. I have 3 niches to choose from: a website explaining best pcs or laptops for different situations , new smartphone apps, or best electronics such as Alexus.

If my choices are too broad or if the niche is not marketable or anything, I will greatly appreciate any suggestions in changes or a new niche.
Reply
affilicoach Premium
Hi Chai,

Laptops and PC's are a profitable niche. I don't know much about smartphones apps, but I'd imagine that the commission structure is not as high as PC's or laptops.

Best electronics is too broad of a niche, so you'd need to narrow the niche down in order assess it's viability.
Reply
ChaiT1 Premium
what specific topic in labtops and pcs should I focus on ( price or usage, etc)
Reply
affilicoach Premium
They crossover, so you can do both.

For example :
In terms of usage
best laptop for college, best laptops for gaming,

In terms of price
best laptops for under $1000, best laptops under $1500,

Crossover.
Best laptops for gaming under $3000

Something along those lines.

You can also have them separate as outlined above and it will still make sense.

Hope that helps.

Where did I go wrong. Started building my first web site and screwed up up somewhere. First I put in the domain name under free. Then I typed in my title and 3rd chose a theme. Then things went wrong.
Obviously I downloaded the theme twice and then when I clicked on on of them it showed a screen and flashed a message thanking me for purchasing some admag program. Now I can't find it anywhere. Help

Hi AffiliateCoach!
I am not having much luck with conversion when people go to my website. They are directed there from Adwords (I can't seem to get traffic any other way). Could you take a look at my website and give me some good and honest feedback whenever you get time?

www.moneyhoneybooboo.com

I know that domain name is ridiculous. I was completely new to this and I just made something up really fast thinking that I could change it later. I didn't find out I couldn't change it until after I already had quite a bit of content on the site.
Reply
affilicoach Premium
Hey Ashley,

I visited your website.

In terms of getting more traffic to your website, you need to add more rankable content. Looks like you've only got a handful of pages of content (from what I could see). And only one of those posts appear to be targeting a specific keyword phrase.

This lesson might be useful. Find keyword phrases that you can rank for using Jaaxy or the WA keyword tool and write content based on those phrases.

When your content starts ranking in the search engines you get people coming to your website free.

In terms of converting your visitors into sales, look into phrase 2 training here. Hope that helps.

Hi Frank, thanks for your great website! I am really looking forward to digging into all the training here and getting started with my online business. I assume I am like a lot of people in that coming up with a niche is the hardest part of the whole process, so I want to run my thinking on this past you and get your recommendation.

One of my passions is food and cooking. I am not sure how focused I should be with my niche. In general, I am interested in all kinds of kitchen appliances and gadgets (which I use a lot). My question is whether for my niche website I should focus more generally on kitchen items or more specifically on one type of item. For example, I would like to start with reviews of the various types of sous vide machines that are commercially available and which ones are suitable for different kinds of cooks. So, more general to begin with or more specifically focused? Thanks in advance for your help!
Reply
affilicoach Premium
Hey Stephan,

The idea is to start off with a very narrow or specific focus. This helps you develop your content direction, as in what you should, or want, to create for that specific group of people. Or what that group of people might be interested in.

From what I can see, from performing a simply Google search, there appears to be an endless supply of topics that relate to the sous vide machine. You could probably build an entire website on sous vide machines, recipes, equipment, etc.

Hi, I have been through the first 10 lessons of the bootcamp and it's pretty basic information. I understand it's the Premium that gets you more information, but I'm not new to internet marketing and affiliate programs. To build an authority site takes a while and lots of effort. I'm trying to get a good grasp of "what the end website has to turn into" in this internet landscape to really get a site to be really profitable.
Reply
affilicoach Premium
Building an authority website is not what you think. Yes, it can take a lot of time and effort initially, but I make money with websites with less than 30 pages too.

I would recommend going for an authority website with the aim of becoming profitable before hitting 100 pages. Then it's a case of scaling and building your income out. Every new page needs to either pull in more traffic to your offers or support / educate your visitors.

Hope that helps.

Would it be possible to see some simple sites like from some affiliates that you know, that is actually generating good money and isn't like crazy complex that took years to build out?

I am looking for realistic websites that someone who finished all training can build and have it generate good results in a reasonable time.

Here's a good example of a simple WA site that makes money.

http://waystoavoidscamsonline.com/

It's Kyle's demonstration website that he breaks down in affiliate bootcamp.

He tells you how to build it and the thought process behind it, which is the most important part.
Reply
roblam Premium
Thanks Frank,
Yes, everyone has seen that site since it's part of Lesson 1 and it's the site that everyone mentions because it's in the actual training.

That's the thing...it seems like rarely does anyone have examples other than the sites in the training which makes me think people are either very secretive about their sites because they are making so much money (or maybe so little money).

And the sites that ARE making good money seems took like it took many, many years and people poured tons of hours into it.

I learn best by example.

I guess I have to try to dig into past discussions to see if anyone has shared other examples other than what is shared in training.
Reply
affilicoach Premium
Okay, from your question, I though you were looking for an example of a website, so that you know what you should be aiming for.

That website is a very good example of that.

Most WA websites are structured in the same way, but they also have their own personalities, and they have more content and their own content direction.

Here's some pretty good examples.
http://www.workfromhomewatchdog.com/
https://survivingaftercollege.com/
https://barenakedscam.com
http://aworkathomebusiness.com

I don't keep tabs on every WA website, but I do know that these websites are doing well.
Reply
roblam Premium
Thanks for those links...they are definitely helpful. It's interesting that they all promote WA ultimately and all in the make money type of niche (or variation thereof).

Since they are all doing well, WA is really supporting many people's lives (it seems). The make money niche is definitely lucrative. WA is definitely doing well with all the affiliate army soldiers working for them!

Those are only examples of WA type niche websites. There are other members and even the same members who are making money from different niches outside of the make money online niche. Just something to keep in mind.

Hi Frank,

I desperately need your assistance RE Lesson 1, under this Topic: Make Money With WordPress - Traffic Getting/Revenue Driving Forces

For the past 2 days or so, Ive been battling with my new website.
I am struggling to proceed beyond the All In One SEO Plug in, simply because the version used to guide us in the lesson is probably an older version or my Laptop is not well configured for that purpose. The page that follows after clicking "activate" is not the same as the one in the lesson, and it unfortunately takes me to a different direction/page

I hope you understand my frustration. Please help.
Reply

Hey Chester,

Sounds like they (All in SEO) have redirected the plugin to a different page. It should be okay if you have installed the All In One SEO plug in and not something else.

If you're in doubt then send me a screenshot of your installed plugins and I'll should be able to confirm it for you.

Hello,

I just did read through the first part of the beginner course and as I already read on the internet and in some books I need to choose a niche first and I already have seen tons of advices how to do so. From searching products in Clickbank, to analyzing quora and searchings trends, but I couldnt find a niche that suits me, maybe I'm just trying to be more perfect with my first website as I should, but I don't wanna waste money for a bad domain/niche ^^. Could you give me some advice? My interests are pretty much anything with computers, hardware, software, games and even programming. My thoughts on niches was Gaminggear, glutenfree cookbooks and camping tools. None of those I'm really happy with as I can't find good partner products/domains or I think there is too much competition. Getting help from someone who knows what he is doing is pretty much the reason I did registered here so if you could help me out with my first steps, especially finding niche this had be amazing.

I thought of solo female travellers, but plenty of times I travel with friends&family;.I would like to cover a variety of experiences than just solo female travellers. I have more niches in my belt ,but this is the one I wanna concentrate on and kick off the website with.

Hi Frank - I need help again. I have applied at three different affiliate networks and have been denied by all three. The only place that has accepted me is Amazon. I have created a logo that I want to place beside my page title but I don't know how to do that. I was wondering if you would look at my site and see if you can identify what I am doing wrong. My website is at http://plus-sizeapparel.com. In addition, I still can't get my page "jeans for teens to appear on my website. I got a message last night that said the page is invalid?" What's up with that? I don't mean to bother you so much, but I sure am getting frustrated?

No problem Pat.

Sometimes affiliate networks like to see a more established website, whereas some networks like Amazon are fine with it.

To change your Logo
Appearance -> Customize -> Site Identity -> Select Logo - Upload your logo.

I can see a page on your website that says "Jeans for Teens", but maybe you're referring to something else?

Here's a screenshot.

Hi Frank! I made it to your profile and am taking advantage of your 1:1 support via your profile as I'm not yet a premium member; don't worry though, just exhausting the free week as I learn and waiting for my next paycheck because sadly, I don't have the $19 bucks yet :(

I have to say, my skepticism isn't quite squelched yet. That $19 for the 1st month and then $49/month is a very scary commitment to me. My skepticism isn't going to stop me from delving in and learning - possibly starting before I jump in 100% with that $19. I look forward to accessing your coaching support and hope you don't think - oh my gosh, this woman is a PITA for sure! Kidding, kidding. I'm not that bad ;)

Thanks again and take care!
