I'm Carson, co-owner of Wealthy Affiliate...nice to meet you and great to have you here within the community :)

In a few words I'll give you a little background about myself. I've got a Computer Science background, and that's where Kyle and I first crossed paths. I love to learn, and I love to teach. My father in public and private education and my mother taught youngsters her entire career. I followed suit by creating a community here at Wealthy Affiliate where we focus on teaching folks how to leverage the power of the web to create Internet businesses!

I got my first Computer in 1994, and since then technology has always sparked my interest. Kyle and I created Wealthy Affiliate to bridge the gap between education, social networking, and technology. We're a small tech company (in a sense) with big ideas!

You have come to Wealthy Affiliate to learn about Internet marketing and how to build an online business. Kyle and I have a combined 26 years experience with Internet marketing, starting out independently before joining forces in 2005 to create WealthyAffiliate.com.

You'll find me here in discussions, in Live Chat, and within my profile helping out in every way I can. It is my goal to help absolutely everyone who is serious about building an Internet business.

When I'm not plugged-in I'm travelling, spending time with my family, or shooting hoops!

You have made a great decision to be part of our community, and I look forward to getting to know and work with you!

Hey Carson, thank you for the reach out, I appreciate it!

I'm really pumped about this venture - slowly but surely I'm starting to understand the navigation processes from the courses and tasks.

I just created my first website, wow! Now it's time to populate it.

Traveling, spending time with the family and shooting hoops - that sounds great to me!

I've been in contact with Kyle and John, just want to thank you guys for staying with me on this ride, especially in the early going - looking forward to what it may bring!

Thanks again buddy!

Hi Carson,

Thank you for assuring me that you will be available for any question on WA...

My first silly question goes...Can WA work in my country? Botswana.

I have tried a few searches to check for fellow country men or women. None in clear sight. I am not necessarily comparing my ambitions and interests with others, just curious as to the effect of WA on a local space, without thinking global. What would I have to do in order to be sure I have selected a relevant and profitable niche. Please guide me here..

Hi Carson, I have been looking in the Internet marketing for a while now, but my computer skills have not been up to the mark. I have built my own sites using Wix, but this is totally new. Affiliate marketing has been around but never came into my world until last year. Yesterday I applied to Holistic Labs, to market their Beta Glucans products but as yet have not heard back. They are just starting in Affiliate Marketing. Other than that I have no niche market. Is it worth building a site with no product or do you have products to market?

Thank you Carson, I appreciate you contacting me. I will continue to learn the business with the training. My goal is to create an online income so that I can live a flexible lifestyle. I am an accountant but I have always dreamed of work from home and living as I choose. I look forward to being successful with your company. First thing...Vegas trip.

Hi, Thus far I like the tutorials and am about to make my website. My question is how many affiliate programs are typical? I can imagine that more is better (like 5 or 6 as opposed to one). One of my niches is going to be container growing of herbs and edible plants. Thoughts?

Thank you Carson for this great opportunity to learn what I have been missing in Network Marketing. The Basics" WOW!! I don't remember who referred me dah. All I know is I clicked on a product or service from my email and WA came up! True story lol. Over the weekend I have been doing some soul and goal searching. I found myself and really got a rude of awakening! I am a leader and student. I have realized that your trainings tie together with everything circling my goals. (Go out and lead and help others Succeed.) First one starts with me! I found myself, my niche, my strategy and WB my platform. I am officially an Amazon Affiliate!
I will incorporate WB and Amazon together to promote more prospects to WB and Amazon!! A WIN WIN!

Thanks Carson for the welcome. I am brand on this page and also in the world of affiliate marketing but I am a professional Network Marketer. My goal is to build my personal brand and build a digital publishing business around Network Marketing from the knowledge that I will gain here. I am highly expectant based on the reviews that I have read about wealthy affiliate and I can't wait to dive in.

Hi Carson, I need your expertise. I know you are busy so Ill get right to the point. I have been promoting WA for 4 months now and was really starting to focus on product reviews to add content to my site. While doing reviews I ran into another amazing program that I love and noticed that most of my traffic has been coming from that particular review. On top of that, i earned my 1st commission from that same program. So, I have decided to switch gears a bit and focus on promoting that other program. My question is, is it fine to promote WA and this other program together on the same site? Will this hurt me somehow with Google? Since most of my traffic is coming from this particular review, I would hate to lose that momentum by starting a new site dedicated to this program but is this something that has to be done? Or can I refer my readers to either WA and the other program at the same time? Look forward to your advice!

Carson, I am only 14 and I have finished basic training as a starter member! I can't afford premium right now but I am willing to buy it later! My question is how do I make money for now without premium? I am willing to buy later with my own money as my parents wont lend me money for premium. However is there anyways to make money without premium? Remember I am willing to buy it later with money I've earned!

Hello Carson, thank you for welcoming me in to the community.

I joined this site for the community and some shared experiences. I'm hoping to feed off of others experiences and get some real advice that works and not just theory or being sold another program that promises to work. I also hope to share my experiences and advice where I can as well. Thanks again, and I look forward to getting to know you and everyone here.

Hi Mr. Carson, I 've been trying to start an affiliate, marketing
business working from home. I need to start making money asap.But, I am an ignorant when it comes to working with computers. Needless to say I dont know how to set up my website/affiliate marketing staff. So I do need help. I cannot send my membership right now because my bank card is not working. I will go to the bank today and get a temporary one while waiting for my new card.

Hi Carson,
Thanks for the welcome. Will be glad to be guided by you but I need time to pass all tasks and levels before asking any questions and upgrading my membership. It’s my second day with WA and the more I read the more I understand how little I know about building and running online business. Now it’s terra incognita to me.
Nice family!

Carson, thanks for the follow and the start-up emails. I really need to make this work for me. I am currently unemployed having gone through a layoff. Skipping a lot of details for the moment, I have VERY LIMITED employment opportunities for now so I am completely dedicated to making this venture successful.

Short of giving you a resume' I think I have a background that should be an asset in this business; however I know I have literally everything to learn. I place myself in the hands of you and Kyle as well as any others that have been successful in this business.

I am headstrong and dedicated but I am also humble when it comes to advice and criticism. The email you sent about learning how to identify and strive to help your niche was very helpful. I have some sales experience but moreover I am a good communicator. I much prefer establishing relationships and building a strong networking foundation more than just making a sale.

I look forward to working with you and am committed to following your lead.

Thank you for your message. Looking forward to see where this journey takes me and every else that is looking for the same as I am. Financial stress is a killer, we all know this and hope with work on our end (with all the help here) we can make those dreams come true of no longer shouldering that burden.

Thanks for the follow and welcome note. I was a loyal follower of Vic until I saw your article exposing Vic, so I switched to your service. I ended wasting time and money with Vic and they have the worst customer support which caused me to question him and his system.

Do you have multiple income streams as well or just based on commision from WA?

How do I build affordable and good traffic?
Looking forward to becoming a premium member but just need to take it slow to go through your system and become familiar with WA community.

Hi Carson,
Thank you for contacting me and I'm excited to start.
When I signed on I bought the silver program. My question is do I have to purchase the gold before buying the premium program of which after seeing the video with Kyles presentation I feel this program encapsulates everything and more than the other programs combined. Now I was getting ready to start this morning when I turned on my laptop it was apparently someone hacked my laptop. I'm having it worked on and with the hopes of being up and start learning so I can start making money. I'm really excited and have a good feeling about this program. Once again thank you for introducing yourself to me which it speaks volume of your character.

I definitely get that the Premium is where you have all the "good" stuff to help out I just would like not to spend any additional money right now but wait and then pay from any income I can create.

Hello Carson and thanks for willingness to help me succeed. I have ZERO experience with this line of work, and didn't even purchase my first laptop until 2010 (pretty awful).

Hello. My name is Patrick Bloom, and I am 5 days into my WA journey. I spend last night reading ALL the profile pages of those who have followed me and have selectively chosen those who I felt had great experience and success with WA. That's why I'm reaching out to you. I completed course one and have a website up. I will join as a premium member within a day or two, but I wanted to reach out and ask your honest opinion about my "About Me" section of my website and my niche. Would you kindly visit my brand new site and respond? I'd value your input. Thank you.

Hi Carson,
Thank you for your welcome. You have both built a great opportunity for people to use their own skills and offer these skills to anybody who is interested in them at a cost. Which is brilliant. you show the people or sell to people all over the world what you have. I dont think my AAT skills and my hobbies will be beneficial to people. Is this what I have to put on my pages for people to see if they happen to click on my advert. Which will be amongst millions of other adverts doing the same thing. I really dont think I will be successful at all at this. To build my own web site is another hurdle for me I dont think I will be able to do that either. I am sorry I would love to teach as have already been a teacher.

Mr carson my name is warren mcFall and im am ready as I'll ever be to join up with you and if you read my introduction im very serious about this and will work as hard as I can because you see not having a job gives me all the time in the world to work at this and work I intend to do! ! So iv started on the 10 steps introduction so ill get back at it and yes I'll bombard you with questions and a little ole man once told me 2 things I take too heart one: theres no such thing as a stupid question and two: there's all ways that one question, and that is the one you didn't ask! Pretty good advice don't you think?

Now for the first question of probably a million, after I pay my first $19, I believe that's the amount, will I be able to be set up enough to try and earn that &19; back? Now I know it hinges on several things and the one I'm most concerned about is my niche! I'm going with Domestic auto parts! Now what I'd like to know is this to broad of a range or should I specialize in one make like chevy thats my specialty! What you think? Like I said may sound silly to you but very important to me!

Hey Brandon,

The reason that your pages are not showing is because your theme isn't adding them to your main menu by default. Here is a tutorial on creating a custom menu so that you can explicitly add your pages to the menu after creating them. Hope this helps!

Hi Carson! Nice to meet you! I'm pretty excited about joining this community. I've already learned a lot that will go a long ways towards setting up my successful online business. I really like what you've built here and I love the membership-based concept. I had been thinking about incorporating that concept into my own site, even before I stumbled upon yours. I hope you don't mind if I steal some of your ideas (I'll definitely make them my own). Congratulations on your new arrival! My youngest graduates from high school this year, so I'm a little ahead of you...

I worked in corporate IT for over 28 years and 'retired' (voluntarily btw) last October. I've been doing some IT contracting part-time, but really want to start my own online business around planning roadtrips. I've been taking my family on 2-3 roadtrips a year since 2002, and it's something I love, love, love. I'm hoping my passion can turn into $$$. Your site is a very real start at making that a reality.

Hi Mr.Carson,

I am an internet marketer since 2011. I make very good money with my various businesses.

But not very happy about the process. Because many of my businesses are like lottery tickets. Some hit and some go bust.

I knew about your WA since 2007-08 when I started my Online journey.

Now I want to go back to your WA school and learn the proper way of content marketing and be proud of what I have created.

I have checked OSP, PLS before coming here...

From 2 days here, I can see the honest intention of you people to help.

It entirely depends on me how fast I can learn and implement.

I want to promote jvzoo, clickbank, amazon etc instead of multiple revenue shares and a couple of IM opportunities I am promoting now because, this is the only way for long term consistent income.

So, God help me in my endevours with enough contribution from myself.

God Bless You.

Seems like I'm hitting a wall in regards to the niche I've chosen (diet and weight loss for seniors). In writing web site entries, I've come across a lot of information and so much of it is conflicting. With content being so critical, I don't want to write about something things that has so debate going on. It's hard for me to tell, which is right and which is not. And that's especially true when it comes to rating diets and weight loss programs. Right now, I feel like I need to regroup, re-assess and find an area of interest that I can feel confident about when I write. More than anything, I want to present good material that's factual, helpful and not misleading.
Reply
Carson Premium
Hey Craig - take the "For seniors" out of the equation because that's a demographic, it's not a niche.

"Weight Loss" is way too broad - so you're going to need to dig down and figure out an audience looking for something more specific. That's why you're likely having trouble with things. Trying to spin weight loss related products and services for a specific age group is just going to alienate people who are not in that demographic. Get more specific with your niche - "Weight Loss" is a MASSIVE industry, it's not a niche.

Here is a great blog post by Kyle that will help you better understand how to find a niche: Also, this post that explains the biggest 5 mistakes people make when choosing a niche. I think these will really help you!

I have been on several webinars & I was still reviewing each one to make sure which one I wanted to join. Over the weekend I read welcome messages from you and Kyle but what stood out was when I got messages from your members. That sealed the deal for me. I have tried selling everything I could think of, but that never worked out. There is no doubt in my mind that this is where I need to be & Im excited to get to work. I completed setting up my account before I ever listened to the lesson. I have listened to the walk through that was very helpful, but I had trouble checking both of them off. I want to thank you both for sticking with me during this process.

Hello Carson

I am very happy to be here at wealthyaffiliate.com. I have been looking for almost a year to find some work that I can do online (I was taken out of work last year for a serious illness and now, almost a year later, I am not going to be able to return to a "traditional" job.

I have a son to support, as I am a single mom, so I need to make some type of money. I have tried many sites on internet marketing. I have been reeled into a lot of them only to find out that they want thousands of dollars to finish training you.

I like that fact that this site only requires a small monthly fee for training along with so many other things. Again, thank you for the welcome, and I am sure I will see you around on the site.

Your friend,

Hi Carson, Thanks for the welcome message. My goal is to start an internet marketing business that I can take with me as my wife and I contemplate international travel during retirement.

Hey Carson:

How're you doing? Hope everything is in its place. I've been researching a lot lately trying to really get the hang of this before I spend any money on a unsuccessful internet business. I've been trying to find a niche where I feel comfortable and that I know I can write about with confidence. I have two strong passions in my life. Basketball and helping Teens during their Teen years (as repetitive as it sounds). I think this two passions could have great potential in the future if I take the time to build around them first.

The thing is that I've been tempted to try other niches first to try and get a little money first. I may not be an expert on them but I guess I could do my best to get some sales. But I'm not entirely sure about this because the "make-money-fast" scheme had never worked out as good for other people and I know I won't be as passionate with this method.

My question is: Should I go and invest 3 or more months of my time trying to build a website about my passions, taking the time to really help others, or should I go and try other niches in order to make some little money? Is there any chance I could do both at the same time? That way I could be getting something back for my time.

Hello Carson! So happy to be here. I'm doing the lessons and wondering if you could help me out with my nieche.... I have to much interest (as you can see in my bio) and can't choose. Also want to get my other business involve. Thank you for your support along the way.

Hello Carson! Just joined the site and very much liking it. Such valuable information to be learned here! That 2nd photo in your gallery (the b&w) is outstanding. Captures all the tenderness and poignancy of what being a new parent means. Looking forward to absorbing and advancing here at Wealthy Affiliates. Warm regards, Lorraine

I have not been paid for my premium affiliate signup Charlotte Gernstein for 2 months now. I have been charged for both months in my pay pal account, but I have not been paid for my affiliate. I am really uncomfortable about this, and I was/am looking forward to building here, but I need to have my efforts rewarded. Thank you for attending to this issue. Jana Szabo Malecki

Hi Carson,

I've finally learned how to use Jaaxy and found 10 very good keyword phrases to boost SEO in my website!
With one of this phrases, I've opened a page on my site and put the SAME keyword phrase in the title, description, meta keywords, 1st paragraph and a few more times over the text.
OK. Another one I have used in a post.

My crucial question is: what I suppose to do with the other 8 keyword phrases?
I cannot open other 8 pages/posts about the same subject on the same website!

I really will appreciate any help.
Thank You in advance.

Good morning, Carson.

I haven't had the chance to thank you. I realize, out of habit I suppose, I've been interacting more with Kyle. When one is embarking on something so new & foreign to them, it's only natural to hang tight with the first co-owner of the site... it's a comfort zone.

However, I look forward to getting to know & work with you, as well. I do have a question for you that just occurred to me, recently: Should I continue to use the "&" symbol that I'm so used to writing with... seems faster than typing out "and", every time. I want my site to have the most professional "LOOK".

In your opinion, should I go back to my writings, such as Posts, Pages & all-things-typed-out & try to get away from that habit & use the word, instead of the symbol? Not everyone writes like that but I want ALL of my readership to feel comfortable while reading anything on my sites, etc..

Please advise.

All My Best,

Sabrina Hicks, Dog Obedience Training/Behavior Modification

Hi Carson, I feel if I choose Jesus stuff as my niche, I will be breaking the rules of WA. I don't want to do that. I love playing video games, but I am not very good at them. They are a lot of fun. I actually played the original Pong game. They have come so far. I was thinking of older people playing video games. Thanks

Hi Carson, you have probably seen my question I hope. Would I be violating rules writing about my journey from drug addiction in my younger days to finding Jesus in my older years. I am not wanting to preach or try to push how I believe on anyone. I would to just help people who may have similar story. If it does break rules, I will find something else. I am waiting to hear from you to a build my website. Thanks, Johnny

I have a question about finding my niche. My first and foremost passion is learning about Jesus not religion. I think that subject my be too broad. I became a believe 2010 April 26 at 3:30pm. I was very involved in the church for about 3 years. After a while, I came to realize a lot of this religion stuff is not about learning about Christ. I left the church and Jesus for about 4 years because I became so disappointed and frustrated. I have recently come back to Him. I was thinking my niche could be helping others that have similar situations. Any advice, Johnny
God bless you too.
I just got an idea from one of our members suggesting maybe "miracles, parables, and lessons."

Thank you for writing. I'll learn what I can, but my finances won't allow me to do any upgrade. I'm on Social Security, and have NO extra income. It's do or die for me, so I have to do what I can as best as I can. Again, thank you for welcoming me.

Hi Carson! Thank you for your email! I am new to WA and am planning to focus my first website's niche on baking cookies. I have my website starting and I am up to Lesson 6 of my training. I am a little confused on how to get myself established with content, but I think once I'm through the initial training it will become more clear to me. Something I am wondering about is how to make the connection of my passion and website content. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you!

Hi Carson, I have question for you. When I log into my wealthy Affiliate page, some things don't work. Like in the Certification tab I was going to check off on one of the tabs on course 3 lesson 7 because I was done with it and it wont respond. Also, my profile picture wont load and the profile pictures for everyone else's page is gone too. Is there anything that you can do to help me?

Hi Carson, an honour to meet you :)
With your background and experienced, creating Wealthy Affiliates is a noble mission and vision of both of you!
I admit I have came across lots of scams, rubbish and 'shaver' in the internet. I believed WA is not one of them that's the reason why I've joined. I hope and believed WA which 'drived' by both of you will lead me to the peak of the mountain of success!
I am not merely for dollars and cents, but for freedom! So that I could provide my parent and family a comfortable life, do charity and if possible change someone life for the better!
I look forward to work with you and succeed to reach my goals!

Hello Carson,

After much kicking around in my noggin, I think I've arrived at 2 entirely different niches, 1 for ea. site. I just want to get any, and all of your thoughts on this. Without going into all of my thoughts, here's my 2 choices.

I'm a professional musician of almost 50 yrs, so I know a fair amount about most of the equip in that profession. So, the first is to have a site that features maybe 5 different pieces ea. for 5 different categories every month. Now, it's impossible for me to demo that much equip myself, so I'll collect maybe 5 different professional reviews for each piece, then maybe 10-12 user reviews from various online music retailers. My primary affiliate would be Amazon, of course, and I can place a ton of their ads on my site as well. There's other features on that idea as well, but on to my 2nd idea.

I'm a Type 2 Diabetic, so I thought I could use that niche, and maybe some sub-niches in that to sell quality supplements. I could use the same type of model using 5 different supplements, and their expert reviews, blah, blah, blah.

So, there are my thoughts, please give me yours.

Thanks,
George

Hi George,

You want to choose your niche based on your interests. Choosing your "Niche" is choosing a target audience, so you want to start with ONE group of people looking for something specific. Diabetes, or Musical Instruments are both high level industries that have a TON of products and services within. You need to choose the audience (niche) who you will be aiming to help with your website.

Here is a great blog post by Kyle that will help you better understand how to find a niche: Also, this post that explains the biggest 5 mistakes people make when choosing a niche. I think these will really help you!

Thanks. I'll try to readjust accordingly.

Hi Carson;

Thank you for the follow. I just got started on WA and I'm already having fun talking to other members. I was worried about finding a niche but I think I found one just by talking to others on here.

I am going to take my time with the training, get all I can from it and make it work. I want this to work in the worst way because like I said in my profile I can't stand working for the man and don't want to torture myself anymore.

Cheers from Canada.

Hi, Carson.

(see attached img)

1. Is it 30GB website space and 500k visitors/month for each domain and sub-domain, or do they share?

When my site gets so popular (I can dream) it hits the max bandwidth allowance before the month is over, what happens? Would my site become inaccessible for the rest of that month? Can we buy more bandwidth if we need it?

Does WealthyAffiliate.com use more bandwidth than that? I only ask because, if not, I'm worrying for nothing.

2. "Data transfer" means sending files to and from, right? I've read definitions, but haven't quite grasped it yet.

So, 'unlimited data transfer' means there's no limit on how many files we can send to and from our sites? (email, uploads, downloads, etc.?)

3. minor spelling error

I appreciate anything you can tell me, to help clear up my confusion.

Hey Sharon,

I wouldn't worry about the limits because people DON'T end up hitting them - we have to set limits so that people do not take advantage of our hosting platform, but it's rare folks come close to using this much bandwidth or disk space. Not something you need to concern yourself with. The limits are on a per-website basis.

Data transfer is IN/Out yes, but we do not allow video hosting or file hosting - we're not a file sharing service. This is normal data transfer for normal website activities and if you need to share large files such as video etc, you would want to use a specialized service like Youtube.com for example.

Spelling mistake - Got it :) :) :)

Hi, Carson.

Thank you. Your reply is very informative and helped me a lot.

30GB website space and 500k visitors/month... PER domain?! *picks jaw up from the floor* I was POSITIVE you'd tell me it was shared between them.

Do the sub-domains (for Premium, not free, accounts) each get that, too? I know that would be WAY beyond generous, but I had to ask.

Having done some additional research today, I'm better able to understand normal/average disk space (website space) and bandwidth needs now. It really opened my eyes to just how much value WA gives us for (relatively) so little money. I don't know how you do it, but thank you!

Last question: "visitors" is a way of expressing page views/page loads, right? For example, 50k visitors/month, viewing 10 pages/posts each, would use the same bandwidth as 500k visitors each viewing a single page or post?

I understand having to set limits. There are always a few people who'll take advantage if you don't. But the limits WA's set are so ample, they're hardly limits at all!

MAN, I love WA!

Hey Michel, nice to meet another fellow Canadian here at WA (there are lots of us). Every course is different, has different number of tasks, and lessons are of all different lengths. Your progress really depends on how much time you are able to spend working on the course content. If you choose to go Premium and open up access to all of the courses and continued support/coaching (among many other things), then you can join on a month-to-month basis. There is no contract, it's pay as you go!

If you have questions or need help with what you're learning in the training you can ask your questions right in the training and you'll get loads of help from me, Kyle and many others!

So I do have questions on how to navigate my website.
Where would I ask questions with the website?

Hey Melissa I'm glad you found us here at WA too! Don't worry about to having much computer knowledge. You've already shown that you are more than able to use the community here to communicate - and that is a big part of learning how Internet business works. When you have questions about your website you can ask the questions right within the training, on your personal BLOG here at WA, or you can ask a question from the main search box at the top of every page. So many ways to get help and support :). You can do this!

Hi Carson - I have looked at WA couple of years back and I was skeptical of joining because of all the online scammers out there. Since I got laid off from my job 2 weeks ago, I decided to search the internet again and I came to WA. I have joined and I complete the Lesson 1 training. I'm a little confused with some, but as I start the premium and complete Lesson 2, maybe I will understand it more and will ask a lot of questions.

Hey Sandra,

There are definitely a lot of scams out there and it's always good to do your research and due diligence before joining anything. This is why we have the FREE starter membership that costs nothing to join. You have access to the community, to support, and to the initial training so that you can make sure WA is right for you. I think that as you continue to work through the training that you will really love what we offer!

Thank you Carson.

I am very confused not only because of lacking of my knowledge in this sector or plenty of online frauds around but also my present situation.

At the age of 46 I started a new life as a new immigrant in Canada, leaving my licence to practice my profession as a physician in back home. From a stable, professional life I became a layman, inexpert, inexperience and good for nothing in a new society. I have a loving family with two kids.

As a family man I hope you can feel my situation. I am to try some other things to earn my bread which are consuming most of my time to earn a minimum wedge which can hardly cover my house rent only. For other expenses I am doing this and that. Despite involving most of my hours in so called survival jobs, it is tough to earn a decent life.

I have my dream to sit for my licencing exam, which is costly, time consuming, laborious and uncertain. By the time I have to run my family also. So I will not have much hours to be with my WA classes.

Considering this circumstances, I need a piece of advice for me.

Wish a great day for you and the family.

Hey Devesh,

The issue here is that you have a different theme at 1and1 and it obviously handles for Featured Images where you other theme that you are using for the site here at WA may not - this is theme dependent and has nothing to do with your hosting.

You will want to find a theme that puts the featured images into the right format so they show up when you share on FB, on WhatsAPP, on iMessage etc.

You can also make sure that you are setting the featured images:
https://en.support.wordpress.com/featured-images/

If you are setting the featured images and they are not displaying correctly when sharing, try another theme.

Hey Michael,

Regardless if you're wanting to sell your own products, or be an affiliate for companies and sell their products for them, the methods are the EXACT same. You need to build a website, build content for your target audience, and attract relevant audiences to your website so they can learn about your products.

Your "Niche" will be people who are interested in your own products. Once you have a website and you are getting traffic to that website, you can monetize it in any way you wish.

Hi Carson. Thank you for following me. I graduated as M.Sc. in Pure Maths at Sydney University and only heard of the subject there, Computer Science, when I had almost graduated.

It was some years later that one of my sons had to write something 100 times or so. He got the old Tandy to do it for him. Surely that is one thing computers are for. Maybe your teacher parents disagree. :)

I am glad you are interested in education. I have found teaching is a great way to learn. I have a good idea of Internet marketing theory - build a list, solve a problem, use a system, don't spam, etc. However I need to learn the details.

Hey Frank, great to meet you! Thanks for the background info - computer science was definitely a great choice for Kyle and I as it gave us the ability to bridge the gap between education and technology in the Internet marketing and online business space!

A list can help once you have traffic and an audience that trusts you. It's not something to start with - we'll explain this all in the courses :)

That's great to hear that you have a background with writing and speaking - very good skills to have! I think that your skillset will be great assets for building an online business where you will be blogging and publishing content on your website for the world to find! I'll be here to help if you have questions about any of the training. You can do this!

Thanks Carson. I'm feeling a little frustrated right now because I'm having trouble building my website. Since I already have a website, I'm wondering if I should postpone building the website until I'm able to enroll in the premium membership.

Nice to know a bit about the founding team. I too, enjoy hoops.
And travelling, last year I was on holiday in Puerto Valletta and filling orders on my web page while on the beach. I want to ramp that up pronto, so I can be at the beach all the time!

Hey Geoff, a fellow Basketballer - great to have you at WA! I've also run WA from poolside on my laptop in the past. It's absolutely the best career to have when you can work from anywhere with an Internet connection. I look forward to working with you!

Hi Carson,

Thank you so much for the awesome welcome. I've had a roller coaster ride for the last 4 years of learning online marketing. A lot of it due to myself not really digging in and staying planted. Like everything worth having, we need a good foundation. I feel I'm ready to make this my home . Very excited. Thanks again.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Hey Joleen, learning how to build a REAL online business is definitely something that can take some time...more specifically it takes time to find the right platform to learn within. I think that you're going to absolutely love what WA can do for you! You've got the drive to do very well and I'll be here to help out at each step of the way :). Stay in touch!

Thanks for the follow. And yes I have many questions. I need content on my web page, how do I load new content..... Is this information I will discover as I move through the training modules? So far everything has been interesting. I use to build websites by hand and this is far more easier than that....

Hey Bruce, you will learn all about publishing content as you get into course #2 of the certification set of courses. Let me know if you have questions when you get there :)

Carson, the latest Post on my WA Blog (Under my top 2 Pinned Posts) is NOT mine, and is this "Hacked by D.R.S Dz Team" February 10, 2017. I'm not sure if it is safe to click to open it, or what.

Obviously the Password security currently in place needs to be changed. I will NOT make any further Posts until I hear back from you or Kyle on how to proceed SAFELY. Thank you for your help here.

Sincerely,

Marv Wells

I just joined last week. I'm really excited. I sure will have tons of questions until my "Rocket Launch". Can't wait to get up in the space, so to say. You are very  welcome to visit my profile page :-)

Thank you so much for your Welcome Mail which I received the other day!

Hello Carson, I do not yet know if WEalthyaffiliate is for me, but I do compliment you on the tone and clarity of what I'm experiencing so far. I have long wanted to create a membership affiliate program for women that has a three tier payout. It seems that you may be perfect to help me actually do that! If so, hallelujah! I can't yet tell if this is all about marketing other people's products and opportunities, or will be a way for me to easefully and enjoyably build my own program inside of yours. I would love to hear back from you about this. Thanks, ALORAH

Hi Carson,

I have a problem with my Refferals Sign Up, I have more than 3 members tried to sign up via my link but the system give them the same message:Oops, we found that you already have an account at Wealthy Affiliate. Please login with that account to access Wealthy Affiliate!
And they don't even use the same IP address i use it.
So Appreciate your helping to know how to solve the problem.

Abbas.

Hey Carson, I'm excited to have found this site. Most websites grab my attention for like 5 seconds but you really have my attention! I have been interested in doing this for quite awhile and I'm ready to get going! I'm ready to dive in and get into the lessons! Thanks again!

Hello Carson nice to meet you as well. I am new to this now I wish that I had got more into learning about computers then possibly I would be better at this. I am looking forward along being on this journey with you as well. So hopefully be chatting with your more soon for this is somewhat overwhelming to me but I have the willingness to learn here. This is totally different from what I have been dealing with in years past.

So...hopefully I'm doing this right....I started yesterday with going through all the steps...or through the 6th step...thinking I was going to do my own niche...then got overwhelmed with narrowing it down etc. So I have one of my sites set up for that (Baby Gizmos)...and now I am hoping to get started with The WA affiliate program and do that for my 2nd site and hoping not to be quite so overwhelmed. Once I get that started and begin to understand the flow a little better and the marketing, I think I will be able to go back to my own thing.

I am planning on upgrading to Premium so hopefully will be setting up lots of sites in the future!!

Just wanting to make sure I'm ok with coming back to this Bootcamp after having set up the first site?

Thanks for all the support!

Hi Carson,

Compliments of the season.

Kindly assist me to transfer my domain duketiana.com to

WealthyAffiliates. I got the domain from Godaddy but I was not

properly informed that I could get it from WA. I've tried to do this

transfer but it told me its been cancelled and I would have to wait

for two (2) months. I can't wait that long because I

have other things to do on my website. I've gone through the

process of transferring my domain via this link

transfer-domain-name-from-godaddy-to-wealthy-affiliate-sitedomains

so I know how to transfer.

I would be glad if this issue can be given urgent attention.

Thank you

Below is response my response.

Hi Kay,

Typically we do not offer refunds as this is an agreement made when you chose to sign up to the Premium membership. I do have some good news though. We definitely do want to work with you and help you with your business moving forward (and for the remaining of your tenure at WA), that would definitely be an option here.

Where are you stuck?
What do you need a hand with?
Can you contact me within WA and let me know where you are having issues?

I would be happy to help. The last thing we want you to do is leave on a bad note and we are sorry to see you have decided to quit WA. I want to help you and help you move forward within the online world in a way that will lead to your ultimate success in business. :)

Kyle, Carson & The Team

Dear Carson,

Thank you so much for the warm welcome! It is so wonderful to finally find people that are so willing to help others make good businesses. I have realized that without support I was only spinning my wheels. I have paid to join two other programs, one as an Affiliate Marketer and the other as an order processor...I have failed miserably at both because I had no clue what I was supposed to be doing. I want to learn, to know where I have made my mistakes as well as redeeming my self-confidence. Now if only I could just discover my niche...lol!

Looking forward to working with you!

Hello, Carson.
I have a problem. When I go to "airplane" my affiliate link looks like this -> www wealthyaffiliate com?a_aid=
As I chatted in live chat I understood that there need to be some numbers (ID) after "a_aid=" but I don't have any. Please, can you help me fix this?

Thank you Carson for you very nice warm welcome message. I am looking forward to working through the training in my own time when I am not so busy. I am interested to know how this will go as I am still not 100% sure of what my niche will be at this moment of time. Thanks again.

Hello Carson , it is nice to meet you and thank you for your welcome email. Even though I joined 3 days ago and never had much time to spend going through WA first up I have a good feeling about WA - it is so different to others that I have tried in the past, their was always up-selling and became too expensive, so I didn't get too far and did not find the support that I am seeing here in this community. So I am feeling very happy about that. So looking forward to getting this working for me.

Regards Joan

Thank you Carson for your warm welcome. I am psyched to be here and will become a premium member either today or tomorrow. depending on availability of funds. I look forward to working with everyone and I am prepared to put my all into the business project. Honestly, in the recent years, as a result of being burned over and over again and watching my moms life savings come closer to extinction, I had all but given up hope in finding any honesty anywhere anymore. You and Kyle are more than a breath of fresh air. In a world where skepticism is our best weapon, you two are dual handedly giving hope to a lot of people. Thank you.

Hi Carson, I'm trying to drum up some discussion on the topic of "info sharing " and the possibly to add more site functionality in regards to info sharing.

- website links of sites members created
- examples of their theme choices in use.
-posts related to their suiccess of a particular site
- examples of affiliate programs they are using on their site
- examples of affiliate program usage find to be converting well within their specific niche.

I have a few other ideas like this, but would like to get some traction on this first before delving into something new.

Hi Carson,

Thanks for saying hi and for the welcome to wealthy affiliate. I am excited to be a part of the community! I am looking forward to building a passion of mine into a business and see it grow to help others. I am currently a manager at a large corporation and I love what I do. I just know that I would love to have the ability to teach others with the freedom to travel and spend more time with my family. Thanks for providing an outlet to educate me on how to do that. With much appreciation, Kathy

Hello Carson,
Thanks for getting in touch.
I have a web site which just before your email arrived, I was thinking of selling because I don't know how to promote it to attract visitors.
I don't know if you can help me with this or can/will come up with any more ideas to make money.

Hi Carson,

Greetings and I hope that you are being well.
I would like to thank you for welcoming me to the WA community.
I am extremely surprised, in a very positive way of the strength, the whole portal, organization, of what you do and offer and the interaction and communication between all the members willing to help each other if they feel they can and want.
I am still in the process of going through the lessons and and I am very happy that everything is explained in a very warm, simple and normal way.

Thank you again and looking forward for the future communication and help if needed, which might go both ways.

Wishing all the best to you and your family members.


Kind regards,

Srdjan.

Hi Carson, it sure is nice to hear from the ones at the top. I do appreciate you saying hello. I have had my pains with oyher online marketing programs, also I've lost quite a bit with trading binary... I know that I will welcome all the help I can get to make this one work. After four years I think I deserve some kind of success and financial rewards.
