That's definitely something that you can get by dedicating time and being consistent in your efforts Jason. An hour or two is a great way to start so you don't get overwhelmed, and I'm sure that over time, as you start seeing results, you'll want to ramp up your efforts to see faster results!

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Before I get anywhere, I have to ask, can I use a domain I already purchased?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Yes, you can use any domain. This could mean:

1) Follow WA training but build your website outside of WA
2) Use WA hosting + Domain purchased somewhere else

If you are using a .com, you would need to be premium to host it here.

If you give me more details about what you're trying to do, I can give you more specific advice for your situation Jason :)

I have a domain that I purchased from GoDaddy and I haven't set it up with WP yet. I was planning on using it for Ecomm and still may. I haven't dug into this site yet (and will get the premium membership this weekend) so I don't know if you can get domains thru here or not. I have a hosting account for myself (I have a few websites for other ventures) but do want to learn more about the hosting provided thru here.

Off the top of my head, is the hosting able to have FTP accounts setup? I love using Filezilla for shuttling files for WordPress. And, although I'm by no means a guru, I have some knowledge for setting my things up. Some cPanels are fussy.

But veering back to the topic at hand, I know zilch about affiliate marketing and ecomm stores. I totally stumbled onto the entire concept about 4 weeks ago and have been researching into it non stop since. That's what led me to find your blog (coffee cup one). This is a skill I want to learn (need actually) and so I'm preparing to start learning. Seems like this is the exact right place to begin.

Since there is an overload of info available on WA, how can I know what exactly to pay attention to?

Thanks for putting up with my schizoid post lol!

"Yes" to all your questions :)

You can use your Godaddy domains, and separate hosting. Or, you can use Godaddy domains with WA hosting. You can also buy domains at WA, and use outside hosting. Also, FTP works too.

Glad to hear that affiliate marketing is your main interest. That's exactly what WA teaches, and they focus on newbies, so you are their perfect audience.

My best advice at this point is to stick to the WA training! Kyle has lined out the lessons to get you started on the right foot and keep you on track. He'll help you get your business moving in the right direction, step by step.

You can always ask questions on the training modules to get answers from other members (including myself). You can also PM me any time with specific questions about the training or your website.

There's a lot of extra stuff like WA blogs, live chat, questions, notifications, etc etc but those are all the social aspect of WA. They are important for building a network of friends (to get help when you need), but those activities will not affect your bottom line.

Therefore, #1 priority is the training. #2 priority is taking action from what the training says!
