Hi Anika, Thank you so much for the follow, much appreciated.  I reckon this is the best place where we can learn and increase your exposure on IM.  The training and tutorials are top notches and I believe the WA community is the place you want to be with on your journey to build a passive income.      [Kelsey]

Hello Anika,
Thanks for the follow, I thank you for reaching out to me. I can relate, I'm mom of 5 adults in the same age range. But I never let my years on planet dictate what I can and cannot start! I've come across more than a few folks recently, that told me I was to old to do internet marketing. I just laughed, as I been doing it for a while, but just not as successful as I need it to be. We can do this!

Hello Melanie and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck then can I suggest you browse some of the 300+ blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me and I will return the favour.
Enjoy your day.
Robert

Thanks for following, Anika. Your life sounds quite similiar to mine I too am active in my church, and I owned a small business several years back. I have written and did own eleven patents, but that's all in the past. I am trying hard to accomplish some kind of success on WA. Look forward to working with you.

Yes, we did! I still haven't had my site indexed by Google. Didn't follow the training as I should, and did not do the SEO plugin completely until I had finished my website for two weeks. It's hard to get an old man to follow directions. Thanks.

Hi Anika. How's the WA journey going ? I am training hard, small steps, and am at the point where I have learnt to add links to my pages. Quite exciting. Website is improving slowly but surely too. Would love to learn how to drive traffic to my site. Might be an idea to just drop the URL anywhere and everywhere, wherever we find an email address ? Roy

I am a newbie also, and so far, I have found the training to be great. I am one of those hyper people who wants to do it NOW, but I can see that the training is set out very logically. Take the time to really go through it step by step and you will have all the tools you need. Also - ask questions, ask for help. It builds community and helps you, and longer term it will help to build traffic to your sites. People will review them, add comments, etc. Which helps you and you can do the same for others.

People seem truly invested in your success. It's a great feeling and it helps as we are getting going on our businesses.

Welcome to WA - lots to learn here- stay focused - go through the Certification Courses first - you will get confused or frustrated from time to time - ask lots of questions - people are here to help you. 


HERE ARE 3 WA'ers Training Posts - they helped me - one is vocabulary you use here - one is a detailed use of your dashboard to find anything you will need - one is a plug-in to add to WordPress - that will help you build your sties. Hope they help - they did me Stay with it - you don't need a wish of good luck - you need a plea to study the material and stay at it no matter what - it will change your life and hopefully the people you touch with your message.

Hello Melanie,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

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! :)

anika2 Premium
Thank you. I actually had a few ideas for niche so it was really a matter of choosing just one! I know you suggested do one niche OR doing affiliate bootcamp, but I was wondering if someone could do both. I love this system so far - it is just so much better than anything else I've seen, and I would love to be an affiliate for it.

Focus on just ONE website and create success with that before diversifying and creating multiple niche websites.

It only takes ONE website in one niche to be very successful online. I usually find that folks that try to do too much at once (focus on several niche websites) end up in a state of mediocrity because it can be overwhelming and you don't really ever become the expert in just one niche.

It is the experts (specialists) that create long term, successful businesses in any niche.
