About Brad1980
Joined June 2016
I am fairly new to the affiliate program scene. I've recently built my first website ever a little over a month ago. I've spent well over a couple hundred dollars already on domains, hosting, an email broadcast platform, google and facebook advertising. I've had well over ten thousand visitors to my website but only eight subscribers. Out of the eight subscribers none have purchased a product.

WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?!

Im hoping to find help to become a successful affiliate marketer. I have set a money goal for myself of at least $1,000,000 per year. That is less than $2,800 per day. I personally think that is more than reasonable. The guy who's ebook I purchased said in his introductory video that he recently had a $1,000,000 day. That's right, he allegedly made $1,000,000 in ONE DAY!

Brad, 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 Brad.

Actually, I am having trouble with lesson 1-4. I have three possible themes; 1.choosing a niche, 2.building a website, 3.getting traffic. I am having trouble coming up with 10 topics for choosing a niche and getting traffic. My overall theme is "Becoming an affiliate marketer. Are these three themes a good idea or do have better themes in mind and what are some topics i can use for my three themes?

Yeah, off on a good start. These are basically just the start of keyword ideas for your site, I wouldn't put too much pressure on yourself at this stage.

Here is some training that I think will help you out and give you some perspective on keyword research:

Thank you for following me. You're in the right place to discover what you need to do to make your dreams a reality.
But please understand that IF this person you speak of actually did make 1 million dollars in a day, that was a fluke, luck and not easily duplicated.
Your goals are attainable but it will take time, effort and Patience!

Hi Brad,

Welcome to the WA Community, a place that trains, assists, encourages and solves problems with you without ever trying to lure you with the promise of outlandish income earning possibilities.

Your goal is quite probably attainable but NOT without hard work and integrity to yourself, your clients and your products.

Good luck and I am following you too.

Write like you are writing to you mama, or your grand-mom,or family member.

Thanks for following me Brad, and welcome to WA. I think you're very wise for coming here, because the education and human support are very enriching, and many times in our lives if we only learn to slow down, and do some serious introspection, we would be able to find what, if anything is holding us back. May I share with you also Brad that it works for me when I stop even briefly , just to count my blessings, and start anew. Just be a little kinder to yourself, and I believe you're going to do very well. Here is wishing you great focus and financial success at WA.

I do not believe he made a million in one day! People say a lot of things to get us to buy their products! That's what inspired me to join WA actually was the article I read about scams! I trust Carson and Kyle! I have only been here a short time, not even a month! But I believe they will truly help us achieve our goals! You can do this! Just have faith in yourself and in WA! Good luck Brad!

You are not doing anything wrong! You have to build credibility and trust. Don't buy followers until you have established yourself. The real work is in building your following the hard way by looking for them in your niche, following and commenting, taking an interest in them...this is what we all want and this is where you start.....

My experience has come mainly from running my own businesses and luckily you have come to the right place there is a wealth of knowledge to draw from here. My advice is work through the training and don't jump around here...there are too many distractions!

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my websites. My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live a month ago and the one on sleep apnea has been up for almost four months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.

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! :)

Thank you Brad for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. If you need any help remember to post your question in the comments section or on live chat, and someone will be able to help you.

I created a short but informative training tutorial for all New Members that tell you what you can do here at WA and most importantly give you a link to the RULES of WA and what you cannot do here. If you have the time or wish to, please check out the rest of my training (Bottom Right Blue Button) on my profile page. I explain ways to help you build a better website, ways to make some extra $$$ with your WA training, and best practices here at WA. I also post a humorous blog on first Sunday of every month. Enjoy!

Hello Brad, ♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me. Do you know this guy in person, who "claims" $1,000,000 in ONE DAY? Or is it a sales talk?

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made 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. It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right under training (click on my picture). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

He actually made the claim on his capture page video. I should have been more cautious.
