About Balsam
Joined December 2016
Hi! My name is Balsam and I am living in Austria. My intention is to learn how to make money online.
I don't have experience in online Marketing or advertising, however, I am eager to learn it. In addition, I am not well-versed in the field of computer but I know how to use a computer, iPad or iPhone. I like to educate myself and I am full of ambition and energy.

Hi Balsam, it's a pleasure to meet you. I had very little computer experience when I started but each day learn more and more, now I think I know a lot thanks to Wealthy Affiliates training courses, step by step at your own pace. I wish you the very best success and I'm following your progress.

Hello Balsam and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you will surely have realized by now 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.

Enjoy your day.

Have a great day!

There is a famous quote from Mark Twain:

"If it's your job to eat a frog, it's best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it's your job to eat two frogs, it's best to eat the biggest one first."

And that just means - do your hardest task first or at least as soon as you can in the morning. If you do this then the rest of your day is easy from there!


Hello, thanks for the follow and welcome to WA. You are definitely in the right place!
People have plenty to share and there is plenty to learn also so take your time and enjoy the experience.

I may not be in the top 200 list anymore (because I don’t socialize here much) but I do have many interesting posts on my site and some you might really like, many people do. I have over 3,000 positive comments, so take a look and get some ideas as to what you can do with your site.

Let me know if I can help you in any way

Cheers Peter :)

Hey Balsam :) I think your dreams might come true if you really believe in your own success :) Since you started recently I'm really curious about how you're doing. I'll learn a lot from you. Your site has already been ranked, so you've made the first steps toward success.

I wish you a great start in 2017!
Balsam Premium
Hi Merlin!
Are you serious about the ranking of my website? It is still a draft and I have to revise it because of what I learnt yesterday about keywords and how to use them!

Thank you very much for your kind wishes and I hope you will have all success you want and achieve any goal you set for yourself!

Wishing you, too, all success in 2017!
Merlster Premium
Since I can see that you've earned the Google ranking badge I assume that you've been ranked by Google :D
Don't you think this is a small step forward regardless of satisfying the low-hanging-fruit-keywords or not? I truly believe that! :)

Balsam, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Balsam.
Kyle Premium
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! :)
Balsam Premium
Hi Kyle!

Thanks for your message! I have understood what a niche is!
However, after building my website, I don't like it any more because I don't have enough knowledge about WA to continue the setting up!

Question: can I change my website with another niche?
Another question: are all offered themes free?

Thanks in advance!
Kyle Premium
I would recommend that you start fresh with a new website if you want to get involved in another niche. You get access to over 3,500 themes as a Premium member here.

You can change your theme at any time within your WP-admin:

Appearance => Themes

There are over 3,000 to choose from there and you will also be able to upload your own from there.

Simply do a search there (the search is pretty good) and you will be able to find a theme/look that you are seeking.

I have created some training on how to do this that you should check out:
