About Bigfam17
Joined August 2018
Hello there. Husband and wife tag team here. My name is Gregg and my wife's name is Kassi. We're very new to the concept of affiliate marketing but are hoping that it is what we have been looking for.

We both work full time jobs but plan to commit as much time as possible to get our online careers going. Hoping this will help us to achieve our long terms goals. We're not looking to use affiliate marketing to give us a lavish lifestyle. We just want to have a comfortable one and be able to provide better for our 3 boys.

Three boys! Boy, you are going to have your hands full! It is wonderful that you and Kassi are on the same page! It really makes the journey more fun. My husband and I are also a tag team. We are both totally committed to getting our sites off the ground and producing residual income. I wish we were younger! I am 65 and he is 77. We live on Social Security and are really struggling. We are like you. We don't want to be filthy rich. We just want to be able to afford the things we need and maybe a little extra! We also hope to leave all of our hard work and websites to our son so he won't have to work until he is 70+! You are fortunate you found this now and have the time to build your empire! Good luck and take care.

Hello Gregg, Kassi and rest of family 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.

You must keep referring to the training.
If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 430+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me PM anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.

Ok I have a few questions if anyone is able to help me out here, it would be greatly appreciated.

1-When we initially set up our starter membership it stated that as a premium member we would have access to creating 50 websites, 25 free websites and 25 domains. In the video we just watched for becoming premium members, it stated we have access to unlimited websites. Did I miss something?

2-When it comes to dealing with taxes, do we have to register our websites as a business? A couple years ago my wife got into selling crafts and what not and she had to file for a business permit or something along those lines. Do we need to do the same here as well?

3- Also dealing with taxes, once we start getting a flow of income coming in through our sites, is there a way to have taxes deducted like you would have with a normal job? do we make monthly payments based off of what we have brought in? or do we just wait till we file our taxes the next year to see how much is owed?

I will try to help you -- and welcome to the best community of online business owners you will ever find.

Firstly, I'm not sure about the websites. I thought we were able to create and host 25 sites, but it seems to me that you can purchase as many domain names as you want to. I would check that with Kyle or Carson.

I have not registered my site as a business, and I think it has to do with where you live? IN NY it is not necessary to my knowledge, unless I am 1) selling products, or 2) starting to generate a lot of income.

Seems to me that once you start earning money from your sites, (over $600 USD) the affiliate companies will send you Form 1099 which then gets filed with the IRS as you would with any other client you are working for. I don't know if you are in the States, but that's the way it would work. SO, for example, if you are an Amazon affiliate and earn over $600.00, they would probably send you Form 1099 which then gets added to your yearly income and filed as income, unless you have expenses against it. Make sense?

If you are making significant income (thousands) per month, then I would suggest speaking with your accountant to work out an estimated payment plan to the IRS, or to at least figure out how much you will owe in taxes and start banking that so you aren't caught short come tax time.

I hope this is helpful to you. The bottom line is that everyone's situation is different so you would have to get some advice from your accountant to see what the criteria is for your situation to start paying taxes on your income.

Hello Gregg and Kassi
to answer your questions in order. You can create 50 websites, 25 free websites and 25 domains. trust me that is more than enough at the moment.
You don't need any permits in terms of local authority permits. What you do need is permission to be an affiliate for the companies you choose to promote products for.

When you have a steady flow of income then is the time to contact a local financial Adviseror accountant.

For now just try and learn the process you have a great advantage because you have two people working together

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! :)

1-Can you promote multiple items through your site such as different kinds of weight loss pills?

2-Can you promote a specific item using multiple companies?

3-How does your site become a top search on search engines such as Google?

4-with my current work schedule I may not be able to watch some live events that I’d like to. Is there a way to watch recordings of the events afterward?
Kyle Premium
Sure, happy to help you out here;

1-Can you promote multiple items through your site such as different kinds of weight loss pills?

You can promote as many affiliate programs on your website as you like.

Over time you will likely be promoting many different products/services on your website and this will take place as your build out content and you see a good match between an audience and a product.

Remember, your role as an affiliate is to connect your traffic (an audience) with a product or service that will benefit them. This will be based on the context and relevance of the content.

2-Can you promote a specific item using multiple companies?


3-How does your site become a top search on search engines such as Google?

This is based on several things, including the content you create, your website authority, and how you target keywords. this is all covered in detail within the training.

4-with my current work schedule I may not be able to watch some live events that I’d like to. Is there a way to watch recordings of the events afterward?

Sure, no problem. The replay is always available within 24 hours and you can watch them as many times as you like, and you can also watch all the PAST live events (100's of hours of training).
