Hello! And welcome to WA! I've been here for about a month and have been doing my best to follow the training. By following the training I've been slowly building up a brand new website. Which I've had no real experience doing and I'm beginning to see some traffic to it. So it's exciting. If I have any advice, it's spend the time to work hard here, complete the training, utilize the community they've created here and most of all, enjoy yourself. Have fun with it.

If you'd like to see the site I've built, understanding that it still needs a lot of work, here it is: www.preparetoact.org
It's based on Women's Safety.

Follow me if you'd like and please use me to answer any questions of provide any help that I can.

Best of luck
Chris

Hi Andrea! I don't quite understand how today WA is advertising the fact that you have recently joined our community now, when it clearly states on your bio that you became a member back in June of last year.

Anyway, welcome and I love your bio info. You have quite a sense of humor which is a great thing. More people in this world need to do likewise and we'd all be better off for it!

I wish you nothing but the best of everything in your business here at WA, Andrea!

Sincerely,
Jeff

PS What is it with "Yada Yada"? Is it something in the water from where you hail from?
Reply
andelane Premium
Haha. Where are you from? If you were ever a big Seinfeld viewer, there is an entire episode dedicated to "yada yada"

Born in South Africa and living in Lisbon, Portugal.

Watched Seinfeld many a time but cannot recall that particular episode.
Reply
andelane Premium
well, are you familiar of any american phrase whereby someone is trying to complete their story by using "filler" words such as "blah, blah, blah" --- it sort of says to the listener "I don't really need to go on with this story, just more of the same. You get the picture"? It's almost as if the storyteller is fast-forwarding his story to get to the end faster. Well, "yada yada" is another way we say "blah blah blah". Does this make sense? ;-)
Reply
Jonicas Premium
I got the picture first time around, thank you.

I am fully aware what it means, you do not need to dumb it down for me.

I am sure that you have got better things to do with your time than explain the finer points of "yada yada".

I feel we have given this matter more attention than it deserves so please I implore you, let's lay "yada yada" and its definitions to rest.

Hey Andrea ,

I just wanted to follow up and see if you need anything. I see you've already taken action and completed your account profile! That's wonderful! It just goes to show you're able to follow directions and are serious about making this business work! Trust me when I say that's half the battle to success online! So you're part of a rare breed! However I see you haven't upgraded to the premium membership.

If it's because money is tight, I can hook you up. Read the following as you'll learn how others have been able to easily pay for this membership: http://bit.ly/afford_wa

At the end of the day you're obviously an action taker unlike a lot of people that may join this community and fail to do anything. As such you should be rewarded for that. So I wanted to remind you of the special bonus I'm offering you:

HOW TO CLAIM YOUR BONUS
-----------------------------------------------

If you join Premium within the next 4 days, here are some bonuses that I am going to be giving you:

(1) You are going to get a 59% DISCOUNT on your first month Premium membership (only $19)

(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there and even the owners of WA (Kyle & Carson) will be able to offer you personal mentoring.

(3) I am going to be giving a special "Diamond Traffic Bonus"

But only if you join in the next 4 days!

You're obviously not required to take advantage of this great offer. But the starter membership can only take you so far. It's clear as day you want to succeed. Otherwise you wouldn't have completed your profile. So I'd like to hook you up with the bonus above!

There is so much more in the way of videos, courses, live chat and private message capabilities that will help you get to the next level quicker. So keep that in mind. In fact, just check out the differences between the starter and premium membership here: I think it will help you see all that you'll get if you take advantage of the bonus and discount I'm offering you. In any event, great job again for taking action and completing your profile!

Keep taking action because every time you do it brings you closer to your success!

Take care,

Eddy with a Y

I just left you a message below this. So just read it and hit reply under it. I address the domain thing.
Reply
EddySalomon Premium
In terms of your domain, read the following: Some other tips:

Don't use dashes, or anything else but .com. No one will remember your domain.

Pick a domain name that would be easy to remember if the person didn't have a pen to write it down.

Don't make it too specific where if you change direction it doesn't make sense. You may decide that you no longer may want to just focus on pasta. Maybe you decide that deserts are better. So keep that in mind.
Reply
andelane Premium
upsgirl got me checking the potential traffic on the jaaxy site. Is that yet another distraction for me right now? Shouldn't I be concerned with traffic when I pick the name of my site... or does that not matter because a name is a name, and I can build the search words into the content?
Reply
EddySalomon Premium
Jaaxy comes in when you start writing content.
Just follow the training and the order provided. So you don't get confused.
Reply
andelane Premium
But Upsgirl seems to indicate that you should check your Jaaxy scores before selecting a niche?
Reply
andelane Premium
Eddy-- Hope you're enjoying your weekend and not answering pesky questions like this one: is it okay to have a domain name that ends in "Net"?
Reply
EddySalomon Premium
Hey Andrea,

I was trying to. LOL

Your domain name should always end with .com
No one is going to remember the .net or anything else.
They will also never remember if you use hyphens or funky spelling. So keep it simple and easy to remember. When I'm trying to think of a domain name, My goal is to try to come up with something that people would remember if you couldn't write it down.

In regards to your niche question let me try to break it down in another way. Your niche is Italian food. Even if that one keyword didn't have much search volume, there are various things within that niche that may have more volume. For instance you could write about Italian wheat pasta. You can then decide that you want to write about various styles of pizza like chicago style deep dish pizza vs new your style pizza. You can discuss one type of desert one day and then another one another day. Each of these topics have various search volume and variations that can continue for a long time. So don't just keep in mind that one key phrase when evaluating your niche.

Think about the variations or sub topic within it. And that's how I can determine if there will be enough content for me to write about for months and years.

Again my suggestion is to follow the training and stick with what it's laid out so you avoid the confusion you;re going through of listening to one member vs another. I discussed this recently here: I hope this helps. Enjoy your weekend.

Eddy

andelane Premium
You are the bomb. Thanks! So, I just bought two domain names: "iluvitaly(dot) com" and "weluvitaly(dot)com" okay, so there is some slightly funky spelling. But… what do you think? It's broad enough so that I could dive deep into any type of food, product, lifestyle… and yet the idea of Italy is still made clear to the audience…?
Reply
EddySalomon Premium
People will misspell it but I still like it. It's definitely broad enough. Good job.

Hey Andrea!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate my friend! Just in case you forgot, I am Eddy with a y. LOL We met back on my blog: http://www.WorkAtHomeNoScams.com. I'm happy my babbling didn't scare you away and you had enough trust in me to give WA a shot!

Trust me when I say you made the right decision and you're going to love this community! You're on your way to building a long term online business like yours truly did because of the training and support here at WA!

That said, let's get you started on the right note so you can get the most out of your time here. As a new member, the first thing you should do is fill out your account profile. Don't even trip, it's really easy to do. All it consists of is the following simple steps:

(1) Add your profile image
(Can be anything you want. Just don't make it dirty. lol)

(2) Add a personal description.
(Let us know about yourself and why you're here at WA!)

That's it!

If you do these simple steps it will really show you're serious about learning how to succeed at this business and people will be more likely to answer your questions and help you if they see you've taken the two minutes to complete your profile. If you need help on doing this, watch the following video: Next you should definitely check out the "Get Started Here" training. This is going to get you up and running with your own website very quickly and has a lot of really easy to follow video training that is going to help this whole "process" make sense.

Here is a direct link to this training: If at any time you need help, just ask. There are a ton of good folks here within the community that will be more than happy to help you out and within the first 7 days of your Starter membership you are going to have access to Live Chat, so make sure you check that out. Just remember people are more inclined to help you if you've completed your account profile as described above.

I also have sweet bonus for those of you that are "action takers"...

HOW TO CLAIM YOUR BONUS
-----------------------------------------------

If you join Premium within the first 7 days, here are some bonuses that I am going to be giving you:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)

(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there and even the owners of WA (Kyle & Carson) will be able to offer you personal mentoring.

(3) I am going to be giving a special "Diamond Traffic Bonus"

But only if you join in your first 7 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, I thought I would personally welcome you. As you can see I don't just promote WA, I'm actually here as a member waiting to help you! So reach out to me. Start by filling out your profile. Don't be shy. I won't bite.

Again, it's great having you as a member of WA! It truly shows you're serious about earning a legitimate living online and WA will show you the process I've used to be successful!

I look forward to reading your profile and hearing from you. So go fill that out now. I really want to know more about you so I can help you achieve your goals!

Speak to you soon Andrea!

Your buddy,
Eddy with a Y. (Get it right. LOL)

P.S. If you have any doubts that this business is real or if it will work for you, check this little article out: When you see what companies are already involved in this business, it's going to be eye opening!
