Hi,

We are Carol & Colin, a retired couple, originally from the UK, living in the Spanish sunshine. As pensioners we have been looking for a way to supplement our pensions and as we both have a keen interest in the internet, we would like to make this media an income generating tool.

Carol was searching around for affiliate opportunities and came across your site. We have spent some time looking through it and watched some of the basic training module videos. Everything seems to be genuine and the help aspect of your service is exemplary.

We are going to give this a try and see how we get along. Like many others, we have tried some schemes that have cost us money but got us nowhere.

Having said that Colin did develop a website to promote his hobby some time ago and achieved some limited success. This hobby will probably form the basis of our new enterprise. Wish us luck! ( We were once told that the harder one works, the luckier one gets!!)

Here we are, 10 days into your experience at WA. :)

I hope things are going well Carol! I want to remind you of one thing, your hard work and dedication IS going to pay off. Keep working through the training, communicating within the community, and of course, ask for help when you need it.

Just heading out for a bit here, but do leave me a message if you need a hand with anything. You should have Premium communication back for an additional 7 days now, so hit me up when you get a chance Carol!

hi Steve. This is Colin here, Carol's Husband. I am the one who is going to develop a website arround my hobby of flying radio controlled model planes. I intend to offer regular posts providing help and advice for people starting up in the hobby with links to affiliate sites where they can obtain the products and books I will be recommending to them.

One question I would like to ask is - when I create posts on my site, how do I ensure they appear on the correct page of the site. I currently have a "Home" page, an "About Us" page and the one I want to post on will be "Your Journey To Success".

I suspect its as simple as going into my Dashboard, on the "Customise Your Site" page click on the number of pages, when "Pages" comes up, hover over the "Your Journey To Success" page & click edit when it appears. This takes me to the "Edit Page".

Is there an alternative way to add posts on this page or have I found the correct route?

I look forward to your reply.

Colin

When you create a "post" it will always go to your blog roll, which by default is your homepage Colin. Pages by default go to your main menu.

As you move forward you will be able to create "custom" menus (we will be teaching you about this) that you will be able to add both blog posts and pages to, so you can create navigation as you wish.

Pages and posts in essence are the exact same thing. Here is an explanation of the difference:

Hi Kyle, Just touching base with you and asking for your critical appraisal of my site progress:- http://rookiercflyer.siterubix.com/ Hope you like it and it makes some sense.

I've already had a comment from one of our WA members saying I have saved him some pain & money so I think it will work when it goes global

Wow, wonderful looking site and very helpful content. You are definitely heading in the right direction and I don't really have anything negative to say about any of your content.

One suggest and something you will want to consider moving forward is intent.

Create your content with intent. By this I mean, when someone is done reading your post they are going to ask themselves "now what".

At this point you need to have intent and get them to do something, whether this be comment on your post (leave feedback), check out your top recommended product, or to perform some other action. If you don't give them something to do, they will most likely close your site and never come back...which is pure traffic leak.

I have created training on this that I think will be very helpful:

So far so good though!

Looking good so far! My biggest suggestion would be to get your own domain name and transfer your site over. Kyle has a great tutorial on how and why here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/how-to-transfer-a-siterubix-website-to-your-own-domain
