Hi, I've just signed up

For a while now I've been searching for great honest trustworthy training and company in establishing an online business. I stumbled upon some good WA reviews which spoke volumes to me. So now I'm looking forward to getting through the training & hoping that it all meets my expectations.

Update to follow ...

Update…

Wow! What a wealth of practical information, inspiration, support, solutions, …
Really gets your creative juices going - Mmm… so many possibilities! Not just affiliate marketing.

It can feel overwhelming to begin with, especially for total newbies who are technically challenged to this online thing. No worries, it becomes clearer and makes sense as we learn it at our own pace! & there is so much help and support if needed from this awesome community!

It’s a beautiful thing putting the learning into action and seeing it take shape!
So is it meeting my expectations? Well in short – Yes & More. Truly a one stop for everything to develop an online business of your choice or however many your heart desires.

To not have to worry or figure out about where to host your websites, etc… that it is all inclusive is brilliant!

I love the fact that this is a spam free environment and you’re not continually bombarded with upsells unlike many other platforms. Apart from the encouragement to go Premium & the Jaaxy keyword tool – that’s it! & they’re totally optional - But really great options to take advantage of when the time is right for you!

& of course the Yearly Premium Plan makes it all so much sweeter!

Hi Alanna
Nice to meet you & thanks for coming by :)

I noticed you are a Divi user, are you still using it? How are you finding it?

I'm trying to get my head round changing over to Divi. I'm in the process of checking out the 2 chaps you highlighted but still don't seem to find how to change theme without breaking the site.

Best wishes to you too!

Hi Brigitte! Yes, I am still using Divi but I am getting a little frustrated with it because it seems to slow down my site. Divi uses shortcodes and that slows down your site. This is what I've been told. I'm not expert on code stuff. I'm kinda looking around for a new theme right now too but not ready to do that just yet. Changing from Divi to another theme will cause a lot of problems for me! Alanna

Hi Alanna
Sorry to hear you're having speed issues. I have no clue on these things & haven't done any training on this. So what speed are you getting? Are support able to help?
Many thanks

It's not a support issue. It's a theme issue. I've had this issue since I started using Divi a few years ago when I was with a different hosting company. When I moved my sites to WA, the site speed didn't change unfortunately and after doing some digging, I realize that it's probably my theme. if you want to check your site speed, check out this link: https://testmysite.withgoogle.com/intl/en-gb

Changing themes can create more problems so I'd tread carefully there. If you need any help or want me to check out a theme for you, let me know! I'm happy to help. Alanna

Many thanks for your offer of help Alanna. I hope you find the right solution for you.

I wonder if this might help you too. In my research yesterday I came across Michelle Nunan from UK. She seems pretty clued up with Divi. She's set herself up as a Divi educator & offers loads of free tips & tutorials on her Divi Soup site. Have you heard of her? Just joined her active FB group too. ~Brigitte

Hi Pernilla,
Nice to meet you!

I see you're from Sweden & now live in Switzerland. I have fond memories of Geneva. Lived there as a child with my grandparents for a couple of years. & surprise went to Sweden, Perstop I think it's called, once to visit my grandmothers brother. In all honesty I don't remember much about it.

You're welcome. I do like the points you raised hence why I liked it. I've just got round to post some of my thoughts, it took me a while to compile it - lol!

Best wishes to you too!

Have a nice weekend.

Hi Brigitte! Where are you at in your training? I'm at level 2 or 3 in the certification courses. It's taking me a minute because I'm busy visiting folks on the site. Got any good niche ideas for baby boomers yet? Keep me posted OK. I'll be following you. Good luck!

Hi Alethia.

Thanks for dropping by here too, lovely to connect.

I've always known what my subject matter is & it's end goal. The hard part is in which way to present & deliver it in a way that flows, as there are so many angles. What was interesting in your Baby Boomer blog was getting confirmation of many of my own thoughts for target audience.

With the training I'm all over the place really as I felt I couldn't complete some tasks without first figuring out other aspects & I'm not focusing on a specific product.

eg: Finding a theme that I liked & understanding how they worked to me was really time consuming & still work in progress to get it to do what I want.

Like you I have also spent a lot of time checking out the different areas here in WA. Lots of inspiration. Following you back! Best wishes with your own progress!

Brigitte, 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 Brigitte.

Hi Kyle

Many thanks for checking in. I will more than likely take you up on your offer of help in due course.

I've gone through all the lessons (a wealth of great information) which I'll go through again in order to complete the tasks to fit in with my branding as I can't see myself continuously doing reviews.

Of the top of my head here are some questions that came through my mind:
The site hosting is there a limit on space?
Can we have our own videos here?
Where would I find all the benefits/specs relating to having websites hosted through WA?

Thanks
Brigitte

Kyle Premium
I see you have gone Premium, congrats on that Brigitte! :) If you want to learn more about the hosting here at WA and the quality of it, go here:

Some Much Need Perspective on WA Hosting (and Comparisons)

Space is never an issue with hosting these days, so that is the last thing you need to worry about. Everything you need to run and operate a very successful business is here on our state of the art platform, we offer a hosting/website experience you won't get anywhere else (In terms of quality, security, performance).
Reply
BrigitteB Premium
Many thanks for that info. Looking forward to the spec info as discussed in the thread.

Just spent hours trying to figure out this whole email thing, with regards to how best to set it all up in order to manage them. I raised a question in the email discussion relating to course 2 lesson 3. I've since deleted my email forward & recreated it as a new atmail email seeings as gmail doesn't allow us to reply as the domain anymore.

I've been testing:
- The sending from atmail was received pretty quickly by my other email addresses,
- However the replies to those emails still haven't shown up in atmail 45 mins later??? Any thoughts?

Also is there a way we could set atmail to notify us at another email account if/when new mail has been received by atmail?

Another headache I'm having is trying to get my website to look half decent & of course as of yet the course hasn't covered how to's on appearance, etc... (whereabouts would that be? I have searched but again spent hours searching not getting anywhere fast for what I need) So when the course requires to share website for comments that's a stumbling block.

So yes a website framework can be set up in 5 minutes but no way ready to be launched for a newbie not understanding wordpress. From the write ups for joining WA and intro once I'd joined I had hoped the step by steps would be more fluid (don't get me wrong I'm loving all the info), I seem to need other know hows inserted in the steps I've already covered in order to complete tasks.

I really want to be able to feel good about promoting WA to other newbies, but before I can do that I need to figure it all out myself.
So apologies for the essay ;)
Looking forward to your guidance.

Kyle Premium
We actually have a superior solution we are working on that will allow you to manage your emails through platforms like gmail or outlook (so you don't have to use atmail at all). This is the ultimate solution and we will be wrapping this up next week.

If you are having issues with receiving mail, I would suggest that you submit a support ticket and see what could be going on here.

I suggest creating a hosting support ticket here:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/support

You can also find this within the SiteRubix menu under the "SiteSupport"(to the left). This is where you should go if you ever have loading issues with your website, email issues, or if you accidentally do something that adversely impacts your website.

This support is 24/7 and upon submitting your ticket we will look into it right away Brigitte!

Thanks Kyle, looking forward to the release of the superior solution.

Sounds like it has been quite a journey to find your way here to WA Brigitte, but I am glad you did.

There definitely are a lot of scams and programs that simply do not teach you what you need to know out there. It sounds like you may have run into one or more of these on your way to making it here at Wealthy Affiliate. I can assure you that much brighter days are ahead now that you have found WA and I really do look forward to working with you.

If you ever need anything at all going forward, I am personally here to help you out so feel free to drop me a reply to this post or you can post a message directly to my WA profile.

P.S. I hope your week so far has gone according to plan and there weren't any surprises! At least it's only one more day until the weekend ;)
Reply
BrigitteB Premium
Yes Ian, quite a journey! lol!

There certainly is a lot of rubbish out there sadly and some that fall short of their hyped promises from the front end which you only discover once you're in the inside!

So far the training has been very informative (I'm about half way through the Get Started) and of course the community has been very welcoming.

Thanks for keeping connected and looking forward to working with you too :)

Hey Brigitte! I wanted to start you off with a quick note that could SIGNIFICANTLY impact your success with Wealthy Affiliate. Read this entire message if you are serious about being successful in internet marketing (it's lengthy, but I'm not joking when I say that this advice could make or break your entire internet marketing career):


1) You'll need to work consistently and hard. There's going to be a lot to learn in the beginning and you may feel overwhelmed at a point, but keep pressing forward and you'll make it through. It happened to me and every other successful internet marketer at some point, and the only way to become successful in this industry is to push past that overload whenever you get there.


Do yourself a favor and commit to a number of hours that you can work each week right now. It doesn't have to be massive, but it should be more than 10 between evenings and weekends at least. Just remember the more you work each week, the faster you'll learn and draw closer to success.


After you've picked the number of hours you can work each week, commit to working that much for AT LEAST six months - a year would be better. You won't see results immediately in this industry, and being consistent is the key. Pick a number of hours you can work each week, then work those hours for at least six months. It's something you've probably never done in this industry, and this advice alone will make a HUGE difference in your chances at succeeding with internet marketing as long as you take it seriously and STICK WITH IT.


2) I recommend starting off with this training (which you can access with your free account): Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1)


It just scratches the surface of the MASSIVE amount of helpful content in WA, but you'll get a good "feel" for the teaching style here and begin to see the power of all of the great things they're teaching here at Wealthy Affiliate.


3) DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE COMMUNITY. Two of the best places you can go to for help when you get stuck are the "Live Chat" and the "Classrooms" sections located on the panel to your left. You'll find direction and inspiration through the community here, which is one of the reasons I recommend WA so highly.


4) Finally, you don't ever have to upgrade to the premium account here at Wealthy Affiliate if you don't want to. You'll have limited access using your free account for as long as you wish. HOWEVER, if you're serious about internet and affiliate marketing then you should invest in the premium membership for AT LEAST one month. You could look back on it years from now and see it as a pivotal moment in your internet marketing career, but you never will if you don't at least give it a try.


Check it out for a few days though - you don't need to upgrade right now. Make sure it's a good fit for you, and if you upgrade within the first 7 days you'll receive your first month's membership at more than 50% off. I keep my membership active and recurring every month so I can be here for the people I refer like you, so realize that I'm putting my money where my mouth is here!


On top of that, if you upgrade to a premium membership at the discounted rate within the first 7 days I have a special bonus EXCLUSIVE to people that join WA through me and upgrade within the first week of creating their free account. This bonus will show you how to be twice as successful with WA or any other legitimate internet marketing program out there and gives you some very valuable video lessons (which I recorded for you personally, of course) to ensure you get off to the right step in your internet marketing business.


I keep a close watch on the list of people that upgrade from starter to premium, so I'll send the bonus your way within 24 hours. If you upgrade and don't receive it within that time frame for some reason, just post on my WA profile and let me know!


I don't offer that bonus so you'll spring for the membership and make me more money, I offer the bonus just in case you needed that tiny "push" to make sure you invest in this training because I know that you will use for the rest of your IM career and it could change your life. I've referred hundreds of people now and I have NEVER had anyone tell me they were dissatisfied.


Best of luck to you! You're about to embark on a journey that could change your life forever, so make sure you take it seriously, put in the time and effort, and expect great things in return!


You know where to find me,
Ian Pribyl
