Hey Frank, hope all is well. Really having hard time getting back after few weeks off. Dropped from 29k to 55k. Gotta get back on that horse and ride it. Question. I really like the layout of the Personal Trainer Pro upgrade when I hit "customize". It is only $50/yr. Anything I should know about this theme?

Hello! I am blessed, highly favored. How are you doing? I am so glad I was able to find out about this. I am getting ready to become a college freshman in a couple of weeks and I am looking for a way to make so good money. I am hoping to do so with affiliate marketing.

Hi Vashon,

Can you definitely make a lot of money with affiliate marketing. Start the free lessons and see how you go.

Ask me questions along the way if you ever need a helping hand.

Best,

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!
Reply
affilicoach Premium
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.

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.

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
affilicoach Premium
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.

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.
Reply
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?

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Hi, thanks for the wonderful support. I am wondering about premium membership, that for one month it is 19$ but after that I have to pay every month about 49$, even if I haven't get any sale or commission something, I have to pay this from my pocket to hold premium membership. It will become hard for me. What u say??

Hey, all good man.

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.

I glad I started the journey and whilst I had to push myself out of my comfortable zone at times, it was well worth the extra effort.

I'm glad to hear that you're enjoying the lessons and learning a lot.

As you shorten the gap in your knowledge of the process, things will start to come together for you and you'll gain better insight.

I look forward to your success Oneil. :)

After a brief attempt at making online money from Inbox(pennies), I decided to look up reviews of the wbsite and your review was the first I stumbled upon. As an 18 year old about to attend my first year of college I couldn't resist your persuasive advice to switch to wealthy affiliate. I would like to thank you for showing me the truth behind the other website. I hope to make as much as you.

Hey no problem Joshua,

I'm sure you're going to enjoy the lessons here in Wealthy Affiliate.

I look forward to your success. :)

HEY FRANK! I also sent you an email to your stealthysecrets email but, I noticed a while back reading through some of your posts and emails that I could start earning money with the basic membership here. I went through all of the training (as far as the basic membership can go) and I'm confused on how this can be done. My plan was to pay for the premium membership with whatever I make from this. But seeing that I only have 9hrs left for the discounted deal I'm going to have to sign up today so I dont miss out on that. What is some advice you could give me! Thanks in advance!

I did sign up for premium now but my current one is lifegurufitness. But I want to change it when i do go to buy my own domain. I'd like to change it to mikerayefitness. But yea I got started on course 2 in the training now.
Reply
affilicoach Premium
Hey Michael,

Yes, you can definitely change the name to mikerayefitness.com as that would definitely be a good way to brand both yourself and your website.

I tried to look at where you got up to with your website.by typing in the following lifegurufitness.siterubix.com, but there doesn't seem to be a website created with that name.

Maybe you called it something else.

No matter, you've gone premium now, so hopefully over the course of your membership you'll understand how it all fits together.

Hi Frank,

I'm planning to develop an affiliate site for people who are looking for opportunities to break free from the 9-5 grind. This is the most interesting niche for me.

I was wondering if it would be better to have my own name as the domain name or something else?I'll appreciate your thoughts on this.

Thanks,

Hey Zee,

Yep, it's best to go with your own domain name for sure. I recommend a domain name for all or any of your websites.

Apart from it looking better to your visitors, it does seem to have a better effect with the search engines in terms of ranking content.

Affiliate bootcamp would be the way to go for this niche if you haven't started this course already.

Hey Jeff,

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.

It's best to move through the lessons, there are 50 plus lessons to go through.

What lesson are you up to?

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?

affilicoach Premium
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.
Reply
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
Reply
affilicoach Premium
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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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/

I don't keep tabs on every WA website, but I do know that these websites are doing well.

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!

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.

I hope you understand my frustration. Please help.

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.

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.

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.

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

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!

Hey Charissa,

Don't worry, just take your time and advantage of the free lessons and websites. You'll still be able to learn a lot in the first 7 days.

Don't go to the premium membership until you feel ready. Truly.

I'll catch up with you soon. :)

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

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!

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.

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.

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

It's sounds like an error Derek.

Kyle usual gets back to people, but it can take him a few days given his work load.

I imagine, that there might have been an error with your login,

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.

In the meantime sit tight, and if you get it resolved before I get back to you, can you please let me know.

I'll sort it out for you Derek, so don't worry.

Best,
Frank

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?

Hey Logan,

Yep, that's pretty much it.

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

So you can give it a go if you like.

Be sure to do all four exercises.

Here's the link.

Let me know if you have any questions / feedback on the exercise.

Hope that helps. :)

Hello Frank!
I need help on some minor problems. My comment block and the format on my page. Where can I get some one on one coaching from? I think my problems are minor ones but I cant figure them out and I have put them out to the community but i didn't get anything that helped. Thanks

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.

Hello Frank,
Thanks for answering back. The answer to my problem was so simple but I did not understand what I was supposed to do. Maybe I was asking my question wrong. I did find the answer to my problem by reading a question that someone else had asked and got an answer to. But Thanks for answering.

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

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.

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.

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
Reply
affilicoach Premium
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
