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!

Thanks for the warm greeting, I will be sure to ask any question that comes to mind as I move through the training process. I am looking forward to getting into the meat and potatoes of this and make some money. I have been in so many different programs that promise the world but has never panned out I hope this is the silver lining.
However, I do have one question now, in other programs content was always an issue, what makes this program different how do we always keep good fresh interesting content on our sites that will keep the viewer coming back to check for new content?

Hello,
thanks for Your kind interest, but...
it's not for You but for an other site which I've already lost because I've too much information and go from one site to other. And everybody wants to communicate but I'm not used to do so too fast... Anyway -
...I'm new (here) and old (in a real life - 77 + sclerosis; inspiring, isn't it?!). Do I recommend this (WHAT this?) to others. Definitely not. I can't recommend anything what I don't understand at all. How should I say anything about nothing even if I was Socrates? Yes, I'll try to go through all the advices, counsels, read e-mails (not all - the life is too short) and try to grasp where I really am and what I can do. I'll try `Join this program - Follow Along With Top Traders`. It's another world for me. I understand it sounds not at all good for this site (as I can suspect). But one thing nevertheless: what do You recommend to me? Open, straight and - I hope - favourably.
But for You - another thanks and I'm ready to go a bit deeper and closer to what's going here!

Thanks Carson
I am excited to be here. I have tried affiliate marketing before with no success. Wealthy Affiliate is like a nice walk in the park in comparison. I'm not much of a writer and could have made a better choice for my niche but for the first time I feel confident that my financial goals will be met.
Before coming here I was thinking I needed to save a wack of money for another online course on online marketing but you have enabled me to get started with no money, which is good as I have not, however I look forward to becoming a premium member asap.
Thank you for your support

Hello - I am now going to complain about your company. You have been very happy to take my money. However, when I raise a query, no one - Karl or Carson have had the decency to reasond at all.

Please respond to my original query, around 4 months ago in which I requested a refund as I have not been able to use the site.

Thank you,

Hey Carson! I promote Wealthy Affiliate using the Custom Signup page option. Some of the people that I send over to my Custom Signup page get confused because it says: Full Name, Email, Password, Username. I know it's stupid but some people actually think that we're asking them for the password to their email address lol since Password is right after Email. I've had 4 people ask me about this. I was wondering if we can have it rearranged to display as: Full Name, Email Address, Choose Username, Choose Password. That way they don't get confused. Anyway, I hope you're having an awesome weekend Carson! Thanks for all that you do!

Please help me solve my problem and develop some etiquette in the support staff who attended to me today. I am doing a copy paste of this message to Kyle and Carson too.

Sorry to say this Nathaniell, but I was having some issues with my website today and I asked the support staff for the website for help.

They were just giving me vague answers and were not helpful at all. After a few messages I was told that they don't support my particular problem and to contact someone elsewhere on the WA platform.

I am absolutely disgusted, fuming and confused and have no idea how to solve this problem.

Here's my problem:

1) I need to go into the "Home" page and edit what's on there and I can't figure out how to enter this page.

2) On the "About Ranji" page, as per following the training lesson, I had saved it as a Post. I need to now save it as a Page and then edit it.

3) On the dashboard of WP, when I click "Pages", it's only the Privacy Policy that shows up as a Page.
Reply
I had trouble with this also, I found that I needed to log in to my website, I thought I was logged in automatically but was not. I think if you go to the website on the dashboard, then to site manager? I will take a look but will send this reply first as I started to reply to you this morning, stopped to look at my website to help you and lost this post.

Hi Carson.

I consider launch my free siterubix blog (just in the beginning then upgrade to own domain) as I can't afford Premium fees right now.

Do you recommend me to use a Medium account as the main blog, temporarily, to take advantage from its SEO authority and place a canonical link in my siterubix which I would use to share posts in social media & to profit from ads ??
Reply
Carson Premium
Hi Omar,

I'm not sure what you mean by a MEDIUM account for your main blog? You're going to want to build your website here at WA to take advantage of our tools and services, and go premium as you move forward and want to continue with the service, training, support, and tools. The investment for WA is nominal to get started, just $19 for your first month :)

You're more than welcome Teresa, I'll be here to help out at every step of the way and will look forward to working with you! You have a main menu on the left of WA with a link to the dashboard. Familiarize yourself with that menu and it'll help you navigate through the site and return to the dashboard after your lessons.

Cheers :)

Good morning Carson, I need some help. Paid the premium membership last night and it’s saying that my bank cannot be charged or something like that however the funds was taken from my account. I had sent an email to Kyle but I guess he hasn’t gotten to it. Please advise how we can get this resolved. I also have a copy of the transaction from my account that I can send.

I do like the very personal approach you, Kyle and the members adopt, it makes the whole experience less intimidating. I joined just 2 days ago and i am really looking forward to the whole learning process, although a little apprehensive as I so want this to be achievable and don’t want to be disappointed.

Hey Carson! So very nice to meet you and hear from you! That's awesome!
This is Marie from Tennessee! I just joined a couple days ago after a very long and fruitless search for something that would assist me in attaining my goals. I have very recently gone through some super massive Iife changes and k have never been more determined (or driven, for that matter) to change it all. I lost both my new husband (aortic aneurysm) and infant son (SIDS) within 7 months of each other 6 years ago. I am totally on my own and, for the moment, struggling. I know with your site, assistance, and guidance that I can overcome any obstacle thrown at me. After all, I've already come through the worst there is.

Thank you for what you do and everything you and your team offer. I plan on doing great things with the training I get here.

God bless,
Marie

Hello Carson. Have to put Site on hold. Ran out off money .No money for domain name, and to promote site.
A niche will lead to needing a domain name that would lead to having to promote. I only get paid once a month.
My son(19) and his wife live with me and he just got a job at Burger King to help me. I didn't want him to work, but just to focus on graduating.
I may have to sell my rims and tires just to keep my cell phone and Internet on. Thought I would have WA going before I ran out of money. Being Broke Zapps my Goal Energy. But I'll get Energy back once I get paid in June.

Hi Donald - Your website does not need to cost you anything. You can build it on a free SiteRubix.com domain, and you do not need to pay for advertising. Our training teaches SEO primarily which costs you nothing and is the most effective way to connect with and help an audience.

You can definitely take a break and come back when you are ready. To do this you would simply need to stop your billing from your account settings page here:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/membership/cancel

Keep in mind, that 30 days after your account closes the webspace for your domains will be disabled, so you will want to resubscribe before that happens to keep them up and running.

That said, we can always bring the sites back when you return if you were to be away for longer then the 30 day grace period.

Totally up to you, you're in full control!

Cheers,

Carson

Not being funny here but I asked Kyle for your opinion he did not do so and I have gone out and done a new site I own on my own and I paying quadruple what I should for advertising rather than affiliation both my accounts to premium. I think it is a shame. But I will do wealthy affiliate like I saiid full time when I see what I get from it slowly because I have no more rush. I already was partnered with thousands of both affiliates and partners but just found new dynamic last week and new partner today. I am an experienced publisher not to stupid to train with you but not appreciative of the way things are going with two Accts now.

Hi Kelly, great to hear from you and I'm glad you reached out. There is a lot that you can do as a Starter member here at Wealthy Affiliate - if you get started in the training you'll have a website up and running and it's all included in the Starter membership. Upgrading to Premium will unlock more training, more features, and more website options, plus the ability to get unlimited help and support after the introductory first 7 days.

Let me know if you have questions as you get started - I'm here to help.

Thanks for getting back to me about the next lesson button.
The fact is I've only been with WA a few days and decided to check out the referral program but now, I've decided to go back to the entrepreneure certification training instead.
But it gave me a good feeling to hear back from you when I was having difficulties. I wasn't sure if I'd get a timely response and I did.

Hi Carson,

New member, I just asked something about my account on Live Chat, but I think the system worked in a way I didn't expect it. I just wanted to check exactly when my next payment would be deducted from my cc, so I clicked on 'Go Yearly and Save', which I didn't want to do, then clicked on the 'Monthly', which I've been doing since april 28. It then seemed to say that I had $34 left and the Live Chat people (mainly DianeScorpioo), said that meant I shouldn't have pushed that, but I didn't know it was going to deduct. Deduction has not gone on my cc yet, but it did say my billing cycle now BEGINS TODAY. But I want it to be exactly monthly. and didn't know that would happen when I clicked on, since I'm already Premium.

Are you able to fix this so that I don't pay until my next due date as it was before, and refund the $34 if it did go through, even if not posted yet? This was the best way for me to afford it, or I would have done the yearly special first offered

My next payment of $49 is due May 28, and I paid the special $19 on April 28.

Thanks so much, and sorry for the trouble. I hadn't looked at my account settings and subscription page before, so I accidentally screwed something up, I think.

Yours,

Patrick J. Mullins

I was convinced by one of the members that with some small tweaks I could take your course to that end. I have not found that to be the case. Please take me off the member list and do not take any more of my money.

Hi kyle & Carson,

I have recently checked my WA status and found that my affiliate commission is declined and existing comment credit earning is seized without notifying anything to me. Now I am worried about my future referral and their earnings also. My sponsor told me that the WA earning is real and trusted and I have followed his instruction. Please let me know that can I work in the wealthy affiliate with all my previous facility.

Hi Carson,
thanks for your message.
I'm fairly new to online marketing but after much searching found WA and would like to use a combination of blogging and affiliate marketing to build my business in a niche area. I have tried to add affiliate content to a word press site linked to my own domain before, but it's clear that I need help and support to learn to do it properly. I will finish the training but at present am still a bit puzzled in terms of embedding content to website code. I'm sure it is all in the training and learning it step by step.
I trust you're well and look forward to chatting with you soon.

Hey Paul, unfortunately that's not something that people really share here at WA. That said, there is a "Websites" box on people's profiles here at WA. If you find someone you want to follow you could see if they have displayed their website there and have a look.

Many people who are doing big numbers online tend to keep their sites a bit private so that they do not get copied. Others share them freely, but we do not have a "Share your top performing website" area.

You could have a look at Kyle's site, it's a very big performer.

It's simple, content forward and easy to navigate. Focus is on the content and quality of that content.

Hi Frencis - as you continue to build your website you will gain the trust of Google if your content is helpful and unique. It can take some time, but if you are targeting low competition keywords as taught in the training, then you'll start to get some traction in the search engines by achieving rankings quite quickly.

Keep on publishing!

I can't change my PayPal account. IDK why it's happening. It says, "please contact sitesupport to change your PayPal". I have done that. But nothing! Nothing has changed.
Why is it happening and what should I do now. I badly need to withdraw my payment. There's only 1 day left!!!!

Thanks for your reply Carson, a few days ago. Just now getting to it as I was out of town for the weekend and I don't have mobile internet (on my phone...the dinosaur that I am). I want to follow up on your reply and ask a couple more questions, as I only have about 4 more hours to do so.

U replied ALL communications at my disposal end after the 1st 7 days. Does that include the help field at the top of the page? Members cannot message me or anything? Just want to confirm.

I'm having problems navigating within the notifications, again i'm the one who is social media ignorant. How can I delete notifications or can I?

I'm not sure I understood your answer with website themes. You said plug-ins allow features & capabilities to be changed or allowed or whatever...do I get ANY plug-ins as a starter? Can I build a decent website as a starter like your information has claimed, and potentially make some $$ as a starter?

2 training classrooms and video walk throughs are included with starter membership. Can you explain what those are? I believe the classrooms are the training i'm doing now with the module 1, is that correct? I think there are 10 lessons in module 1. What is meant by TWO classrooms, and what are video walk throughs? Just the videos in each lesson? And will I not have access to watching re-runs of the live Friday nite seminars?

Carson, I understand the real meat is in the premium membership, and I plan to upgrade to that in time. I am currently unemployed and am planning to upgrade when I land a part time job which will hopefully be soon. But until then, when I chose to join your program, my plan was to build a site/blog with the limited tools I have and hopefully it would be good enough to possibly make a few bucks, which would atleast add some motivation to this venture and make it more comfortable to pay some monthly dues. But depending on your answers here, I don't know, this plan of mine may not be possible, until I go premium. If I am indeed limited to building an extremely basic website as a starter, and have NO access whatsoever to asking questions after a couple more hours, I may need to just hold off on this venture until my part time job is landed and I can more comfortably go premium. I'm not complaining about this, other than the fact that your info states that you CAN start generating $$ as a starter. And maybe you can by moving forward, maybe i'm falsely becoming a little disillusioned at this early point. But as a newbie, I can't imagine building out a website without being able to ask questions through the process. But, give me your say and meanwhile we will move forward and see how it goes. Thanks Carson and enjoy the rest of your day!

Hi Anthony,

The plugins that you have access to are already installed as a Starter member. Generally the starter membership is great for getting started and building some trust that WA is the right choice for you. Going Premium is going to open up the platform and the full potential of the training, your websites, and capabilities within the community to really excel.

Many folks generate revenue on the Starter membership, but you'll expedite that process greatly by going Premium and accessing the full tool set.

I can't change my PayPal account. IDK why it's happening. It says, "please contact sitesupport to change your PayPal". I have done that. But nothing! Nothing has changed.
Why is it happening and what should I do now. I badly need to withdraw my payment. There's only 1 day left!!!!
Please update

Carson, I understand that that my 6 mo. subscription has 38 days left on it. At that time, I want to stop my account, due to illness. I cannot renew or continue under either a 6 mo. or yearly basis. I do not feel obligated to go further with your company after my 38 days are used up. Could you please help me to give me the dare ( invoice) when I began my initial 6-mo. subscription? Thank you.

i am very much interested in your program and it is worthwhile being an engineer by profession and a new member of this site. I know my skills are not so good because I don’t have much knowledge about this. For improve my skills, please give a chance to continue as a beginner.

RE: WALDMANN/DEBS66 COMPLAINTS

If it is someone reporting Waldmann/and or Debs66 then it will be COMPLETELY justified.

I personally suffer at the hands of Waldmann and Deb66 everytime I go into Live Chat and they are there, so it is just unpleasant and I am forced to leave.

I now avoid both of them like the plague, as do others.

What you need, to solve this problem once and for all, is a blocking system like they have on Facebook, which would segregate the 'problem' people that treat Live Chat like it's their own private idaho.

You have a problem that is growing because a small group, of long-term members, have claimed the Live Chat arena as their own.

It has gotten so bad that other members are now following suit and thinking that they can treat others badly as well.

It doesn't always happen, but when it does it is just horrible.

I am sure that many newcomers have left WA because of this.

Newbies are often ignored in Live Chat - I was - because more established members are using it like it's Facebook.

None of this is good for your business.

PS: If you want proof, I can show you evidence by way of screenshots.

Hello Carson,
Thank you for the follow. Your support means a lot to me. I think I have made a great decision to join the WA community. I already feel welcome and can't wait to dig in!

I will be working my nursing job through the weekend. So may not be on the platform much until Monday. But, I will be so excited to get back to it.

I thank you and Kyle for starting this wonderful adventure and letting us start this at no cost. I have paid (a Lot!) for many classes
that didn't really give me the information that I needed to be successful. In the short time that I have spent going through my baby steps here, I have learned more and best of all, I don't feel alone.

Watch for me on Monday! I will be back!

Have a Great Weekend!

Hi. I am choosing my niche.I started with health and beauty products for midlife women to mini facial devices and anti-age serums...both big time on the rise and have many affiliates. I can then add balms (on the rise too) to calm skin down after the serumsCompletely different option: eye shadow stamps. Do you think this is just a fad and harder to add on? Thanks for your help!

Hi Carson,

I responded to your email this morning, but I guess it doesn't go back to you. So below is what I wrote. Please advise.

Thanks for reaching out to me. I went thru all the training modules yesterday and started creating my website. However, after several hours of frustrating tries, I am stuck. For this first website, I want to advertise crazy good Ebay deals. These are the problems I am having:

1) I signed up as an Ebay affiliate and can make the links, but how do I get them on my website? Inside my website, I have some headings: Crazy Deals of the Day, Always Good Deals, Link to Ebay. When I click on a heading, I want to see a bunch of small picture icons showing my hand-picked deals. I want the picture to include the price and relevant details, and I don't want to see the written link. Also, I want these to be "live" so that if the sales price changes, the website updates automatically.

2) When I click on the "Link to Ebay" heading, I want to be directed to the Ebay home page.

3) I want to add color to my website. Right now I only seem to be able to add color to the background and not the words.

4) I want to know where to put my optimization words.

5) I want to better understand how to use all the Ebay tools. If only their website explained things as well as yours.

I suspect I might be able to get add-on Widgets that help if I update my membership. I'm fine with that as long as I know I will be able to do what I want to do (everything mentioned above). Please advise. Also, if I pay the $19 for the 1st month, I can then pay for the next 6 or 12 months at the discounted rate (when paying in full) and not be stuck with the $49/mo, correct.

Hey Carson, I'm not sure what niche to start with. Ive actually been a top affiliate in the past for other online marketing programs/products but some bad experiences led me to get really frustrated with the 'make money online' world. At the same time, the breadth of offers and high commission %'s are hard to ignore. I'm not sure whether to start with a niche based around an interest of mine or to start with a online marketing niche. Whenever I start to think about jumping back into affiliate marketing, I get stalled here. Any help is appreciated.

One idea I have is to launch a brand called "learn after 40" targeted at folks like me who just turned 40 and suddenly have a desire to learn something new. I've always had an interest in learning piano, and I found a piano course on Clickbank that looked like it would be good for people who don't have a music background. Thought I could go thru that course, share what I learn, my journey, as sort of the foundation for my first niche. Not sure if that's the right way to go about it.

My vision is to start with Learning piano as my first niche, and focus on it exclusively until I'm making sales, then launch other niches based on other passions/interests with the same brand "learn after 40" as separate silos on one site. Can that work? Am I overthinking this?

I don't have kids, and as I've gotten older, I have time on my hands and all these things I want to learn (or have started to get into) that could be great niches, and I think there are a lot of people in this situation, getting older, that would resonate with this. Anyway, if you think a simpler approach is better, I'd definitely value your feedback.

In my past, as a successful affiliate, I ran exclusively paid traffic (FB Ads mostly) so SEO and niche sites are new to me.

Hi Adam,

Learning an instrument is certainly a niche that you could get into, however targeting a demographic like "learn after 40" only makes your audience smaller and alienates those that are not in the age range. I rarely suggest targeting a specific age, rather suggest targeting the full audience. All genders and ages. You can still speak to those that are over a certain age, but the entire site will convert much better if you do not target all of our content to a specific age group.

I hope this gives you some insight and is helpful.

Hi Keith,

How to lose body fat is a bit broad, but the lifting and protein options are quite targeted. There are 100's of ways to lose body fat, so you're doing to want to drill down on the one and find a specific audience who is trying to lose body fat a specific way.

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!

How about I make aniche about proper lifting techniques. There is so much bad advise our there for people can I write about that. And if so. Could I help sell equipment or suppliments with this niche
Look forward to hearing from you
Reply
Carson Premium
Hi Keith,

Yes, you could certainly create a site about lifting techniques, but keep in mind you are doing this to generate some revenue, so you want to connect with people who need something. Perhaps you could review home gym equipment? Or you could mix into your lifting techniques, ways that you could do this at HOME and then point people to where they can buy this equipment. That said, it's much easier to connect with people who are looking for information on something to buy, information or reviews on products or services. Someone who does a search for "proper bench press techniques" in Google is not looking to buy anything, so you are connecting with people much earlier in the buyer purchase lifecycle than someone who does a search for something like "best home gym equipment in 2019".

Perhaps you mix in lifting techniques into a site that focuses on a niche where people have a problem, or questions, that is a bit further on in the purchase lifecycle where they want buying advice.

Information about Supplements would be a lot further along in the purchase lifecycle as you can review all kinds of supplements, what is good, what is and, what is a fad, trends, supplements for this, for that, etc.

I hope this helps :)

Hi Carson,

I'm Anthony, I signed up a couple days ago as a starter. Appreciate the welcome message u sent me. U are a lucky man currently, because I was just about finished typing a lengthy message to u, and accidentally changed windows, which resulted in the message disappearing when I returned! Very frustrating! So the good news for u is this one will be shorter as i'm going to try to be direct.

I'm old school and I don't, or never conformed to social media. So communication navigation has been a bit difficult for me here so far. I'd like to ask u some questions for answers when u get a chance.

1) In receiving messages, is the bell icon at the top of the page the way to see all of the messages sent to me? Or are there other places to check as well?
2) In sending messages, I would prefer to send to one person mostly, instead of participating in a live chat. As i'm doing now with u (1st time i've done it this way), I brought up your profile and am currently typing a message. I'm not sure but i'm thinking I can either send this to u only, or include this with the community. But does this method of sending messages end after 7 days for starters? I'm just a bit confused of the available ways to communicate on this platform, or more so, how to do it.
3) Its stated that we have access to successful members on site, but how do u find them? Is there any kind of a member directory available? I have so many questions, but I don't know anyone here by name other than u & Kyle, and I don't want to bug u guys to death. So please shed some light on that.
4) I will let u go with one more pressing question on a different subject but I have so many more. This is very important so I can move forward to building my website. As far as choosing a website theme goes, are they all the same other than the colors & backgrounds? Let me be more clear. I want to do some unique things with my site, can the features & capabilities differ (or bells & whistles differ) with each theme? For example, could one theme offer the capability of posting 100 photos, while another limits photos to 50...can a theme provide more available space than another? Kapeesh? In choosing a theme, am I just basically looking at the colors & background to choose, while they all have the same features? Or could they have different features & capabilities?

Sorry, I know I can use many keystrokes to ask questions. I'm really looking for some one on one help and asking exactly how to reach out for that. But your platform is impressive, kudos to u guys for creating this, and i'm glad to be here. Look forward to your response when u have time.

Later man!

Hey Anthony, sorry to hear that you lost the long message - frustrating but I certainly know how it feels as it's happened 100's of times to me over the years lol.

I'll answer your questions below:

1) In receiving messages, is the bell icon at the top of the page the way to see all of the messages sent to me? Or are there other places to check as well?

***The bell icon at the top of the page are where you will find all communication related to your account. Replies to your questions, comments etc.

2) In sending messages, I would prefer to send to one person mostly, instead of participating in a live chat. As i'm doing now with u (1st time i've done it this way), I brought up your profile and am currently typing a message. I'm not sure but i'm thinking I can either send this to u only, or include this with the community. But does this method of sending messages end after 7 days for starters? I'm just a bit confused of the available ways to communicate on this platform, or more so, how to do it.

***You may send messages to any member of WA just like you are here. Simply click on a user's image who you want to send a message to and visit their profile. You can then leave a message on the discussion on their profile page. All communication ends after 7 days for Starter member accounts, to continue communicating you must upgrade to premium after that period.

3) Its stated that we have access to successful members on site, but how do u find them? Is there any kind of a member directory available? I have so many questions, but I don't know anyone here by name other than u & Kyle, and I don't want to bug u guys to death. So please shed some light on that.

***On the dashboard activity feed you'll find different sections (cards) related to "Success". You can view the full posts there. If you want to ask a question, the best way to do this is to click on the "Help Center" on the left, and "ask a question". This questions will not be addressed to anyone but anyone will be able to answer it. It's not a LIVE scenario like the live chat, so perhaps you will feel more comfortable there.

4) I will let u go with one more pressing question on a different subject but I have so many more. This is very important so I can move forward to building my website. As far as choosing a website theme goes, are they all the same other than the colors & backgrounds? Let me be more clear. I want to do some unique things with my site, can the features & capabilities differ (or bells & whistles differ) with each theme? For example, could one theme offer the capability of posting 100 photos, while another limits photos to 50...can a theme provide more available space than another? Kapeesh? In choosing a theme, am I just basically looking at the colors & background to choose, while they all have the same features? Or could they have different features & capabilities?

*** All of the available themes to Starter members are "Good" themes, and if you go Premium you can change your theme at anytime. The features and capabilities you want to add to your site can be accomplished with PLUGINS, again you would need to be Premium in order to add those, but you can literally do ANYTHING with your site with 10's of thousands of plugins available after upgrade.

All great questions here, please let me know if I can help further.

Hi Chris, you can absolutely start a business selling Amazon or Shopify and this is exactly what you are going to learn here at WA. Our training is going to teach you to get a website up and running, drive traffic to that site, then you can choose what to promote on the site. Amazon, or create a Shopify store etc.

I would suggest going Premium here at WA and choosing the yearly option if you want to keep your overall costs down. We'll give you step-by-step training, support, a website and hosting.

If you have other questions just let me know and I'll be happy to answer them for you. You ARE in the right place by being a member here at Wealthy Affiliate.

If you are aware of this and are working on this please disregard the message.

When I try to add a support ticket. It will let add the questions all the way to the final text box. I was able tonight to finally get a post out to site support but it was very challenging.I found that I had to add a screenshot first then I was able to add the content. However I had to keep playing with the cursor to get it to function, It took about 20 mins to get it to respond.I scrolled through other portions of the help center even using the classroom settings. It all responded the same.

Jay and site support and Kyle have all been investigating this matter but could not pin point it. They thought that there maybe a problem with my browser but there is not. It does not give me any problem at all except this concern. It is definitely something on WA's end.

I have also verified this matter with others on live chat. So it is not just me.

Hi Carson, thanks for welcoming me aboard. I have been having a break from Kyle's training and found myself reading through a great number of your messages and responses which have been both informative and at times extremely entertaining! I know Kyle has said on a number of occassions that there are no stupid questions, rather the folly would be in not asking the question at all. The source of my amusement has been the number of messages you receive that are not questions but demands on your person for all manner of things both great and small. I am impressed by your patience and clear example not to 'sweat the small stuff' when dealing with such a large and diverse demographic. A lesson I will no doubt need to remind myself of in the years to come when reviewing comments to posts on my own websites. Thanks again to both of you for providing such a fantastic opportunity, Cheers Dallas

Hi Carson,
It is good to contact with you. I have a personal query to you.
It has been my dream to hangout with you and Kyle since I have joined WA by referring 300 premium members. But you know, it needs a lot of efforts to make people understand how cool WA is and make them pay the money to upgrade their account to premium. I have to do a lot of Struggles to recruit so huge number of people. So, what I do is: at first, I create free accounts for each of my friends in my device and hand their A/c over to them (as they are so mean that they even do not want to take the pain of creating an account at the very beginning). Many of them upgrade their accounts to premium whoever likes to stick with it and earn by offering comments. I am thinking to invite almost 50-60 of my friends everyday and I believe 7-10 of them definitely would upgrade their accounts to premium (I have created 20 free accounts for my friends and already 6 of them upgraded their accounts to premium and 3 of them are going to upgrade tomorrow or soon).
But creating their accounts costs many efforts and time. I think I deserve atleast the commission ($1) of "100% account setup" for the efforts and time.

There my problem comes: I am not getting the commission for every accounts.
I just want to know, why is it happening? Os this a technical default or something else?

I hope, you will reply me soon.
Thank you sir.

Robwarneck Premium
Just curious, if you don't mind me asking, how do you "set up accounts" for you friends? Do you just send them your link or do you actually use your link to do it for them? When doing this for them do they see the value of the system and that's why they go premium? Because I have found in the past if you do "all" the work for someone, they lose the concept of how valuable a tool they have and they stop putting in any effort on their part. I definitely think it is an awesome idea to "help" people and assist them, but they also have to take their own initiative as well.

All the best,

Robert

Hi Moinul, really great to meet you and hear that you are wanting to refer folks to WA! Unfortunately creating accounts for others in this fashion will not earn you "lead" payments. When your friends upgrade to Premium is when you would earn a commission. You cannot setup accounts yourself and earn the $1 account setup fee.

Hey Carson,

How’s it going?

A funny thing happened with my domain, long story short I got this warning from gmail saying my site could be a spam site, so I posted it and got an answer back of a WA member.

He said he checked waybackmachine and the site had a spammy fruit drink landing page.

But before that in 2008 a guy from here had it.

I’m looking at it and I’m in the footer in the about and I can see all your old photos, the guy was a member from here lol.

It was after him that a Asian person bought it to connect there product to it.

Well, now I have it and instead of thinking it must have been ‘badly’ penalised by Google, I’m thinking it will soon take off and be bigger than ever.

So yeah.

Recap: I got a email warning from Gmail when I was testing my free guide being sent to me.

Long story short my site was owned by 2 previous owners, a guy from Wealthy Affiliate way back in the first days, and then an Asian person.

Well, i thought I got this warning because of really bad history.

If you want to see some old photos of you, take a look here: https://is.gd/poO3ZQ

If you see the tab there in "My friends" is a profile of a Laura Moffat.We emailed through here,also exchanged personal emails and Skyped each other.
She,it is in fact probably a he said first of all she was a nurse in Ghana,later by accident on Skype there was the usual "I`m serving in Afghanistan" saying that these people use.
I traced the original IP adress to my gmail and found it originates from Westchester CA.
On scam notification websites,this location belongs to a man who is one of the most prolific dating scammers on the internet.
Take a look at the IP address from this profile and you will see what I mean.
The IP address I got is

Hi Rupesh, yes I'm co-owner and founder of Wealthy Affiliate. You are off to a great start on your website.

Keep posting content, you want to have many posts for your audience to browser, and for Google to crawl. I suggest setting your homepage as a blog roll. Here is some training on this: Also, you may want to include a right hand menu for your site so that your audience can more easily browse and navigate the site.

Hi Dale, I'm not entirely sure what you mean by applying affiliate links? You can choose to add any affiliate links that you like to your website, however you're going to want to first choose a niche for your site. Who are you trying to connect with? What are they looking for?

When choosing a niche it's best to choose something that you are interested in, are maybe passionate about, and a topic that you feel that you would like to continue learning and evolving within.

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!

Hi Carson,
Thanks for the kind words, I'm really honored by you and Kyle giving me a spacial importance. It look like we know each other since long time. I ask Kyle a question and same for you.

My niche will be "part time work with full time money" or "highest earning part time jobs" or Affiliate, suggest me the Domain name.
May be
1- "parttimejobbuster.---com",
2- "buildyourbusiness.---com",
3- "affiliatehelpline.--com"
4- any of your suggestion.
Thanks for your help in advance.

Hi Akbar - someone looking for "part time work" may not be looking for anything related to ONLINE business, so you may want to choose a niche that is more targeted to working online and building an affiliate marketing business. I think that the audience you connect with may not be relevant enough.

Your domain names are good for an audience looking for online work.

Hi Carson!
Thank you for your messages. I am trying to get along with Word Press theme but I did something wrong or else Word Press logged me into my other accounts off this site.. I love word Press themes but just don't get along with it. Maybe I go too fast rushing. I picked a theme and started changing the front page with a lightbox as a static front then I wanted to use the site for blog reviews of affiliate products.

I haven't taken time to get into discussions so far because I want to get the website up and going and posting ads ASAP. Sent you an email also.

I am not a big social meia person so I have a learning curve going on. OK- Many thanks to you and look forward to working and learning from you!

Best regards!

Hey Aleta - great to hear from you. Im following up to see how you are doing with WordPress and if you've been able to choose a theme that you are happy with? Picking one with a Lightbox as a front page is not something we recommend. The best case for readability, search engine indexing, and user experience is going to be a dashboard (front page) with a list of your recent posts. This way it stays current, people can easily find your new content, and Search engines can quickly index that content. Let me know if you've got any questions or need a hand.

Have a great week!

I did change it during my first Premium year to a penname.

I now understand the potential of using a real name.

Hi Carson
I'am thinking about selling digital products online. Like on Clickbank, or others. What type of training should I be looking at, Bootcamp, or the certification training. What type of training are they teaching in WA, to build a brand in one niche, T Shirts, or Camping Gear, or Mens Watches Ect. I'am a little confused I hit a snag when it comes to niches. It's hard to ask for help.
Thanks For The Input

Hi Davi,

You'll want to stick to the Certification set of training courses as you'll be choosing your own niche in that set. Focus on the training - adding affiliate products (Clickbank or other) to your site to sell doesn't happen until course #3.

We're teaching Affiliate marketing and this is exactly what you will want to focus on for selling digital Clickbank products. First you need a website and traffic, so follow along in the courses and we'll walk you through the process.

Hi Carson, I was excited until I started reading the following on your wall, without any response??

1. Hi Carson, I cancelled my membership today, but was also charged $49 today. I have already transferred my websites to another host and will not be using any WA Premium services for the next 30days. Can I please have the refunded? Thank you.

PS I messaged Kyle and he ignored my question completely and gave a generic message to ask me to keep my account. Please assist me truthfully and let's part in good terms
2. Hello Carson,
Why did you choose to ignore your members post without any reasonable response. If you continue this way, you will just discover WA will be a thing of the past because most premium members will surely quit.

So many premium members were logged out automatically without having access to log in and you couldn't find any solution to this effect, even with new members that just upgraded. The domain I brought to WA which i have full copyright ownership on was also disabled. Tons of messages has been sent but you choose to ignore.
Please kindly find solution to this before it gets out of hand.
3. Dear kyle, why all of a sudden am I asked to login but when I put my Login details I still cannot I open my account?
I joined wealthyaffiliate yesterday, paid for premium, contact you several times no response.
4. I created this account temporary because my account which I opened today, paid for premium today was locked out telling "We were unable to find a user account with the credentials provided" after have paid $19, even am already posting comments on people's blog before the issue came up. please is this how wealthyaffiliate treat their users here and is there a solution?details to my locked account is

There are more and surely you will not expect anyone to join WA with these problems and no response?

HI Carson. Thank you for the welcome. Looks like you may need a personal assistant though to help you with this wall! In any case.. I have been looking to get into affiliate marketing for a while now. Can you tell me... how does your site compare to clickbank?

Additionally... is there any limit to which countries I can target? I present reside in both the USA and UK.

I work at Amazon so just curious what your experience is with their affiliate associate program. Hopefully there is no restriction for me to be involved with that as well.

Thanks!

Hi Carson I did post this message in live chat but hope you don't mind if I ask you as well My domain is a .info which I purchased several months ago prior to joining Wealthy Affiliate. My blog is already indexed in Google, with an ecommerce store on a subdomain. My question is as I'm considering moving my hosting to Wealthy Affiliate should I buy a .com and start again using articles I've posted? So far I've only created 8 posts, but now everything is set up I plan to create at least 3 posts a week. It's just that having watched one of the training videos I now see that .com .net and .org are the best choice.
Reply
Carson Premium
Hi Kathy - great to hear from you. A .com is going to rank much better than a .info and you can certainly move your website from the .info that you already own to a WordPress website here at WA. Our SiteSupport team can help you move the site over if you want to do that but it must be a Wordpress website to start.

I do suggest that before you start publishing 3x a week, that you grab a .com, .org, or .net

Hey Carson,

I tried to contact you yesterday about my yearly payment not coming out as it normally would. Is this not automatic anymore?

Today I went on here and found myself booted out and had to re-subscribe. It is no big deal but caught me by surprise. What happened here? There was nothing wrong with anything in my PayPal account

I know why I never received a payment failure notice. The request for payment was never made and just wondering if this was intentional or an oversight because I realize I'm no A-1 member.

Thank you for your time and help here,

Carson, I am not sure of the correct lingo. I have a website with WordPress hosted by Bluehost, it is paid until 4/20. If I purchase a ULR with RUBIX is the 13.99 the only additional charge? Am I looking at a similar price for add-on even with being a premium member with WA as I find on Bluehost? My experience with SFM has me questioning intent whenever I see $$$. I know some expense is necessary - I didn't like being in the funnel when attempting to learn.

Hello Carson, Thank you for the warm welcome to WA. Both you and Kyle have been extremely gracious and kind in welcoming and encouraging me at WA. By now, I expect that you both know I'm a 65 year-old professional that suddenly became unemployed. You both likely understand that fighting age discrimination no matter how subtle in form is difficult regardless of your professional career or achievements. So, I remain unemployed. I am taking my life in a completely new direction. I am going to build my own business and work for myself and see if I can make an income that will support my wife and I and our 8 kids. I want to thank you for your dedication and continuing support for this journey that every affiliate has embarked upon. I genuinely appreciate the personal commitment to help and support us all.

Hi Donald - really great to hear from you! You can be up and running with a website within a few moments using our website builder here at WA. Then you can simply add content to it and target your niche audience. Building the website is an ongoing task, it's the core of your business that you really can't just pay someone to do.

If you follow the training you can be up and running very quickly.

Hi Nathaniel - you can certainly use any website with the training that we offer here at WA. If you want to move that website over to our hosting to make it compatible with our Premium services then you could upgrade to Premium and our team would be happy to help you import it. You do not need to build a new website - you can follow along in the training with your externally hosted WordPress website but you'll miss out on the many features we offer to WA hosted WordPress sites.

Hope this helps,

Hi Carson, just a DM to greet and meet :-)
I have to be sincere, quite impressed so far with the perceived expertise the user can feel going through this platform.

I'm a former real estate, (10 years), started domaining in the brandable space as a hobby till it became a semi-pro approach. I have a quite interesting domain portfolio (a bit more of 1000 names) that anyway is giving me nice rewards.

After a couple of years i started to feel the need to add value to some of these domain names and the Affiliate Marketing always gave me a blink in the past, but i never embraced it.

So Here I am.

I just started first videos about niche and i own some names with some business ideas, that maybe you could help understand if doable or not:

They are all in dot com

- Vodqa (Vodka blog or search engine)

- CardioPros (Some device heart-related)

- SilverBeats (Dont know for what but it can be quite wide)

- TrekkingBlog (This should quite clear :-) )

- FlexiDream (Nap industry)

- DigitalCalm (Meditation Space)

- DermoWorld (Cosmetic or similar)

- PremiumShake (Dont know how it sounds in Supplement niche)

- HipsterMedia (It should be something interesting in the HipsterSpace

- FirstBump (Dont know maybe baby- pregnancy space)


Well i just named a few just to understand if i'm on the right track and to have your valuable help to start with the first Website.

Good Work and sorry for my english

Hi Gabriele, really great to meet you and thanks for the introduction.

When choosing a niche it's best to choose something that you are interested in, are maybe passionate about, and a topic that you feel that you would like to continue learning and evolving within. It's great that you have come up with some ideas already, however they are all very different and I strongly suggest that you choose ONE audience to target (your niche) with a 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!

hi Carson my name is Kenny and I'm new here and I'm real passionate about making money on-line. I don't know why I haven't started this a long time ago. I guess I have a question or two maybe?

Okay I have been dragging my feet because i'm just kinda not knowing what direction to go. I have seen so many webinar and a lot of misleading info after paying money that I really don't have, I guess I'm having doubt that this works! Can you help? Please!!!!!

The first thing I need to figure out and I thought I already did that but now I'm not sure about what I should focus on Like what to sell?

Anyway I hope that it makes sense and I will be a premium user in a week so I can get the full benefit of the platform.


Oh my thing I thought I was going to sell was pet items cuz people really go out of their way for their pets, so I thought it would be perfect but now I'm not to sure!!


I look forward to hearing from you. Thank You

Hi Kenny,

Great to meet you and I'm glad you found us here at WA. Choosing a product to sell is taught in course #3 of the certification set of courses. Before you choose products to sell, you need to choose an audience to sell to.


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!

Good morning Carson,
First I just wanted to drop you a quick note and thank you for the opportunity to work with you and Kyle to make the extra money I'm looking for. I have ask the live chat and haven't got a straight answer yet so I'm going right to the horses mouth so to speak to get my answer.
I'm not afraid of doing the work, I have the time to do all the work needed to succeed but I also know myself and if I don't see money coming in after doing months of work, I'm just going to quit and continue looking again but I do believe here is where i want to be but I need to see some results in a couple of months doing atleast 20 hours a week so which training do I start to see some kind of results no matter how small??? Do i do Boot camp WA or do i those a niche and build a website??
Thank in advance Tom

Hi Carson,

I left a message on Kyle’s profile (I thought it was a PM) I ended up deleting it because I had my cellphone number in the message. But from his response (he congratulated me for going premium?) when Kyle responded to the message I don’t think he actually read it but maybe skimmed over it.

I then contacted site support not knowing if they could help or not, but figured they would know better on how to handle this situation; and they told me that they forward my message to you.

I am trying to pay another member’s first month (19.00 special for upgrading to premium) premium membership and not sure how to go about doing that. In my messages I give the consent to charge my credit card on file for the 19.00 US dollars for the members upgrade.

As I and the new member await any response from any administration on how to proceed.

Any help in this situation would be greatly appreciated

Calvin

thanks very much for the Mail. I really like the way you both talk to the people here. You get a way better connection and trust, trough these Messages/Mails. Thanks for that and the friendly "Hello". Otherwise I am also really excited to work with you both and the people around here. I just saw on Instagram that you live in Victoria. Because I lived there for a month last year and it's a beautiful town, with so many nice peoples. I really enjoyed the time there. If I knew there is this website before I left Victoria, we could have go for a coffee. Next time!

Hi Carson - This is a bit of a weird problem but I've tested it thoroughly for over a week and it seems to hold up.

If | schedule a post in WP, it publishes fine and appears at the top of the blog roll on the home page BUT, in my case, ONLY on my laptop.

On an iPhone and two iPads, the new post does not appear in the blog roll although it is directly accessible. I asked a friend to check it on his Android phone and it wasn't showing up there, either, although I only checked this the once. No amount of refreshing or rebooting the app makes it appear.

If I update ANY post or perform an ;action' which seems to 'push' somethng to the site, the problem is resolved.

I struggled with this for a week and finally got in touch with Site Support who suggested it might be caused by SiteSpeed and, sure enough, when I turned it off, the problem disappeared! Switching it to Accellerated didn't work, it had to be off completely.

I really don't want to lose the advantages of SiteSpeed so I was wondering if you could look at the situation and, hopefully, find a solution. Support said they were 'looking into it' but, in spite of a follow-up message, I haven't heard from them for a few days.

I'm sure this must affect a lot of users although many wan't have noticed it.

If I can help with any more info, please ask.

All the best,
Ian

Hey Carson,

I wanted to let you know that I am having issues accessing my website. I have contacted Site Support (several times) and they claim that they are looking into it but it has been at least 24 hours, which is very unusual. I even sent Kyle a message with no response from him. I'm starting to get concerned. I even asked other members if this has happened to anyone else, they even claim that it is unusual. If this doesn't get resolved I may have to ask for a refund on my membership.

Hi Carson. Do you have a few minutes? I would like to discuss niche selection. I have good ideas but would like to have feedback from an expert. I am at the point to name my website and I would like to name it properly.

I have posted my question about niche, got very good answers from people but it did confuse me a little. Not sure if I am on the right track. I know that the website name is crucial so I want to do it right.

Your input would be very welcome.

Hi Stephane - Apologies for not seeing your message earlier.

Have you moved forward with naming your website?

Here is some training that I think will help you with choosing a domain name. Keep in mind that you can think about your website name as you continue to build out the content - it does not need to happen in the very beginning stages if you are unsure of the name.

Carson

Yes I did.

Almost done my training. Just need to complete a few lessons for the Affiliate Bootcamp.

I have my own web hosting as well so I did practice a lot on my own as well. My weakest point that I need to work on is SEA and anything that relate to ranking. Never did that type of work before really. I was more in charge of the design of the actual site in the past.

I am really focussing on this aspect right now.

Great work on getting a few pages published. What I think is going on here is that you should be building a custom menu so that you can define the exact links you want to show up in your menu.

Hi Carson
Even though I have visited the US a number of times, I am always astonished by the warmth of the citizen's welcome. I was first there in 1957 and believe me, for a young chap from Africa, it was just like being in a movie! Somehow, bumbling about in the internet, I came across the estimable Brock who directed me to WA. I know nothing about websites and in fact was, at the time, looking for a writing job. But to build a website was something deep in my heart and young Brock divined it. God bless Brock I say.

Hi Carson,
I already goofed. I thought I was supposed to get my domain name from NameCheap, so I did. Now, I realized I should have done it right here with WA. I have no clue how to transfer it to be hosted here. I did not sign up for their hosting. I have a couple other .com domains I could use, but the one I registered was, of course, my preferred one.

Can I still start my website without cleaning up this problem first?

Hi Ann - no problem you can keep your domain hosted at NameCheap and just point it to WA servers.

Often times I look around me and think "do not have high expectations" and still feel disappointed by the waste. Somehow there is a belief that everyone could and should be something like better but in the sense of being present in this limited lifespan. And for some reason or reasons they don't. But other times I realize there are people like you and Kyle. And it gives me a reason to keep trying. Thank you

Howya. Hope you are good 2day. Found something a bit odd on of my websites. It seems Jaxxy or some1 working for them are slipping links for jaxxy into my site. Seemed very off so I quickly broke the link.

Any ideas about this or what may have caused it. I know I certainly put no link there and from the perspective of a visitor to the site, this link was taking them away from my site to the Jaxxy website which as I see it would be very counter productive as a site owner?

How can I stop this from happening again please?

Right, well it's just very unusual then, and it't wouldn't even be easy to copy and paste, insert hyperlink into something by accident when you think about it, into a headline that was never intended to be a link to begin with.

sure not to worry, I fixed it anyhow. We'll just out it down to one of those things and see if it happens again.

A DNA testing lab is trying to sign a contract with me to help sell their product online, but they are asking for a business registration. I'm currently in Hong Kong. Do we really need a business registration for WA? Or this is just because I'm doing business with a company?

I'm very confused with the rules. Please help!

Hi Zihinnelle - you do not need a business license to be an affiliate marketer, you can work as an individual and that is the most common way to start a business online. Some folks do incorporate companies and get business licenses after some time, but it's not required by any means. Every company that you affiliate with can have unique requirements to affiliate with them.

Hope this helps - let me know if you need more explanation.

Hi Zihinnelle - regardless, if you do not have a business license and a company requires you to have one then you may need to find another company to work with. You may want to reach out to their support to ask for clarification here - I'm not going to be an expert on another company's policy unfortunately and I wouldn't want to give you the wrong advice as to what they are looking for. If the company is one that you want to work with and affiliate with, then they should be able to give you a straightforward answer. Just let them know that you're an individual with a website and they can instruct you on what they need.

Hi Debby,

If you're having trouble reading the text in video's try changing the video settings to HD - that will make the picture much more clear.

I suggest that you stick to the Certification set of courses because we outline exactly how things work. The overall process is this:

1 - Build a website specific to an audience
2 - Connect with that audience
3 - Offer that audience products or service that can help them.

The first 3 courses focus exactly on these three points above.

It sounds like you are getting ahead of yourself because choosing a domain name is part of the training, and we outline in great deal how to do that. Keep in mind that choosing a domain name is optional and can be done at any time.

If you're wanting to promote a specific affiliate program that's great, but you still need to get through courses 1 and 2 before you start adding links to that company on your site. You need to define who your website is for, what those people are looking for, and what you can offer them in terms of helpful content. The is outlined in detail too.

Sounds like you will need our training, so hopefully you'll be able to stick around for a few months to get that help :)

If you have questions about any of the lessons, please let me know so that I can answer them for you. The most common point where people get stuck is if any lessons are skipped, specifically in course #1 to #3.

You can access the Certification courses from the "Training" menu.

Hi Keith,

1 - What aspect of the health/fitness niche do you want to help people with? There are literally 1,000's of niches within these categories and you will want to narrow it down.

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

2 - There is no "Category" to publish under, you simply want to create content for your audience and publish on your website. Google will find you and rank you accordingly.

3 - Why are you going to buy a theme? I suggest that you start with a free theme and just keep things simple to start off. There are 1,000's of themes out there that you can install that will work just great for building a large blog - just see my notes above for choosing a specific audience.

To be honest this is were I am running into trouble. I've called it TopGear Fitness Solutions. In person,I am help people with learning the in's and out's of what's to do when a program is writing for them from understanding rest times, proper weights, reps and proper body mechanics.(so the use proper lifting techniques)
I love this but I'm wondering for my 1st website with my work! MBe I should start with an easier site like football merchandise like helmets and jersy's.
And when I start doing better and gave more time I can commit to this. Our small I over thinking this.

Hi Keith,

I think that you could do extremely well in the fitness space and having all kinds of blogs about different types of exercise, explaining why rest times, proper weights, reps, body mechanics etc are important. Right there you probably have 100+ different spin-off articles you could write about while keeping the content all specific to people looking for Exercise fitness advice.

It's actually a lot easier to write about this kind of thing than it is to come up with content to write about football merch or helmets etc.

I agree I (i will try the football thing till later on)so in hearing you say that.

It may be my fault as it usually is but i i could get a suggestion from someone im sure questioned themselves at 1st

I tried to request payout of my $95 earning since the 28th of february but i still haven't received it in my paypal account till now. I'll appreciate any help you can render to me regarding this.

Sounds like my Husband Chaz and Carson would get along great! He, too, has been in the electronics and computer areas of business and interests since about 1976 (30+ years on-off now). He, also has a few AAS degrees in Computer Sciences, Teaching, and Business Administration (to name a few) and still is passionate of them both. Between the two of us, he is the hands-on tech professional "guru", and I am the Public Relations "talky-talky" person. We, too enjoy very much helping and/or providing consultation of many interests to others.

On a personal not ... we both grew up as orphans - myself within bloodline, and him through foster homes/orphanages. So, we both always enjoy conversations with others similar to our upbringing and "life on life's terms" experiences :)

Carson, the website is finished. I have not started advertising it yet until you and Kyle give me permission to do so. Please look over the site and domain URL and tell me you are happy with everything before I commence paid advertising on it (https://wealthyaffiliateacademy.com/)

Thanks Carson :)

Good day Carson, I withdrew 92 cash credits on the 28th of February and I didn't receive payment on my paypal on the 1st. My Email was provided correctly and my withdrawal exceeded my threshold. I have been contacting Kyle till he asked me to send the message to you. Expecting your quick reply. Thanks

Hi Carson,
I have paid for premium membership on my other account: ZoeBi today. However, when I finished payment and return to my WA dashbord, it continuously showed I need to resubscribe to premium, even more I could not access to any pages.
So what's wrong with this? Why I could not access to the Members Area? Why I just paid for premium and it shows my Premium membership is closed immediately?
I cannot understand this situation. Can anyboday fix this issue for me? I just bulit a website on that account, so hard for me to give up. :(

Thank you for your offer to mentor me. I have tried to start in this field before but didn’t get the mentoring I needed and was unsuccessful in convincing the businesses that I was serious in joining their affiliate marketing team. I hope I don’t find the same roadblocks here. I truly need to be successful as soon as possible. Thanks, Yvonne

I know you probably have already been contacted about these spam accounts but thought I would send the names just in case. They all have the same bio and use generic profile pics. Their names are:

Hi Carson! Thanks so much for the welcoming message.

You are such a handsome young man, with a beautiful wife and beautiful children!

I have lost thousands of dollars trying to get something up and running so I can make money on-line from home. You and Kyle's WA is really my last hope as I have already spent all of our savings.

My goal here is to supplement my husband's retired U.S. Army pay and his 100% Veteran's Administration Disability. I am 68 years of age and my husband is 10 years my senior.

We have no life insurance and should Dan die before I do, I'm afraid of losing our home and the style of life his money has given us. I must and will do something to prevent that from happening!

I feel as though I am finally in the right place to make that happen, thanks to you and Kyle.

Thanks very much for all you do Carson!

I think we can do this. I am semi-retired and my late husband . . . I need something myself. I'm 64 years old (that is an old picture but it reminds me of a nice time). Anyway, I've looked online myself and spent some money on scams too. I don't think WA is a scam. For one thing there are real people who have been with WA for years.
Best of luck to both of us.
BTW: My dad fought in WWII, earning 2 bronze stars from the US Army. Thank your husband for me.

Hi Carson, thank you for the follow. I like how you and Kyle (even though co-founders) connect with people personally. It's made me feel welcome and I'm sure others have as well. Also is there an app for WA? I tried to search it on google play store but couldn't find it.

Hello Carson,

I subscribed recently and I am happy I have joined this community. I`m going to get started and hopefully upgrade soon but I also ha e questions for you, which however I`d like to ask privately. Is there a way I could do that before upgrading to Premium.

Thanks

Hi Carson! I am actually already a premium member , I took advantage of the black friday promotion last year. I did not open my account for a month or two because of my work. When I tried to log in this message appears: "We notice you haven't updated your password recently. Now is a great time to update it! We've sent you an email with a link to reset your password".

Until now I have not yet received my reset link. I have messaged Kyle but there is no reply from anybody. Please help me recover my account. The email I used to register is dig_vii@yahoo.c om. My username was kidcolt,

Hi Kevin, I'd like your assistance please. I have started with my website with the title: How to earn financial freedom online and I am thinking of following that as a niche - I wrote an about page and I think I may have been carried away a bit - is there a way I could ask you to comment on what I have written before I put it out there...? I'd like to add you to my buddy list as well please.

Thank you so much

This is what I wrote:

One of my mentors used to say:  Let your devils and demons pay you, meaning if you have anything at all that causes you pain, use it as a stepping stone to your success. In other words use your greatest challenges to create success in your life. What is your greatest Challenge? My challenge was as I grew older and older I discovered that I preferred working from home. I wanted more freedom, more time with my family so I had to find a way to do just that. Ever since the early 90's, I have done every course I could get my hands on that had the promise to give me the freedom to create an income online.  Most trainers stressed on the importance of "the list" and some were all about getting me to sell their programs or products and kept the list for themselves, then there were all those "Done for you" systems that weren't done at all.  I did Drop-shipping in the 90's and was disappointed by the fact that the quality of products was sometimes not as promised. Nothing seemed to work for me, was there something wrong with me, why couldn't I get it...? Oh, how about those funnels they kept talking about...? Eventually I started realising that most of these guys who come up with these ideas are only interested in selling a product, there was definitely no coaching as to how the product worked instead of them showing you how it worked, you got inundated with upsells of more garbage that's meant to make the useless product work better and once you get the upsell, you had to get another few upsells for it to work and it still didn't make any sense at all, I spent £1000's.Looking back now I realise my issue, I was looking for something outside myself to give my freedom yet in actual fact I am my own freedom.  I needed to have a mind renewal. It is Jim Rohn who said: Success is not to be pursued; it is to be attracted by the person you become.Looking back now I am grateful for all my past failures, all the numerous courses, it has all fueled my passion to learn and become an expert in the very subject that has been the greatest challenge to me.My own lesson here: Become more! My name is Kimberleigh Matthews, I have created this website to assist those people who want more out of life.  You know you deserve more and you are ready to Rise Up and be the gift of Magnitude that you've always known you Can Be by creating your own Financial Freedom Online no matter where in the world you are.  This is the Real Deal!

Hi Kimberleigh, is this your "About Me" page? If so then I think it's just fine. You've outlined your story and you're just letting others know what you've been through. Go ahead and publish and if you want me to have a look at your website at any point as you add some more content, please just let me know :)

I made withdrawal request of 72 cash credit from my WA account to my paypal account since on Thursday 28 feb. But up until now, the “status” of the transaction on my WA is still “pending”. The money is yet to reflect on my Paypal. Can you please help me look into this?

Thanks for reaching out to me Carson. I too come from a computer science background. I've managed to complete MCSE certifications and worked on various platforms in my history as well as backgrounds In Electrical Engineering with a degree In Electronics & Chemical Engineering Technology(To a much lesser degree) with 18+ years at the Boeing Company with almost all of my time there in a Research & Development capacity with various labs, In and around the company. I also worked at other various other companies for another 19 years before and after Boeing for a little more than 36 years as an Electronics Tech and Developmental Electronics Engineering staff member. My first computer was acquired around '83, having been around various computer types and OS's at Boeing where I began that career in the first few Months of 1981. I started a consulting business around 1993 or so, to just make a little side money and expand my knowledge base into the consumer aspect of computing, which at the time did not have the installed aspect computing is today. I remember talking to colleagues about computers back around the 80's and early 90's, how the will or will not become "commodity" items. And at the time I never thought we'd be carrying around full blown computers in our pockets, aka our cell phones...!!!! you know our smart phones have more than 100x the computing capacity of the "computers" we were using back in the 90's..!!! And almost EVERYONE....!!!, has a presence on the Internet in some capacity or another. Who knew...?? heh And you knew the industry would grow, but not to the way it is today. I had no idea of where It's gone. But I do love the opportunity it's offered, I just need to get my head on straight as to how all this works, because I know I'm missing something in the connectivity of how all this is put together to allow success in so many ways. So, I know I need to learn what I'm missing to get my little piece of the pie..!!!!...:-) Let's do it...!!! Ok, gotta go. I'll talk to you again soon.

It is a great pleasure to meet you Carson! I kind of wanted to write you a private message, but I can't figure out how to do this. I think, if you don't mind I need your help. I just wanted to give you and Kyle some information that I thought should be private for now. I am very glad I joined WA. I have enjoyed every moment I have been here and I am so grateful you have let me be a part of your family! This is what it feels like and I have met so many good people on here. I truly love this Community and can't wait to build a website and show people what kind of a special family of people I am working with. You really make it very rewarding to be here! Thank you very much!

Hello Carson! It's nice to see something on the internet that seems legit, i.e., something one actually has to work for! I am looking forward to learning. I am being forced to live with my mother due to the facts that my father died and she is 86 years old and I have e to be here for her. Therefore, this is just what I need. I realize that I will need to be gone from time to time, but the alternatives would not be feasible. So, thank you for being a servant-leader, Carson!

Hi Matthew - yes we are very legit and we've been the leader in the space for the past 13 years. It's funny how companies can tell you that you'll succeed "without working", it's just mind boggling because I've never seen someone who succeeds who doesn't work hard. You sound like you're ready to get down to building your online biz here at WA and I look forward to working with you on that :)

Hello, Carson, Kyle,

Thank you for the chance to check out your premium membership for $19. I would like to revert to a standard (free) membership, so I cancelled today and would like to have the $49 charge (which seems to have been charged one day early) reversed.

Thank you for your support in resolving my request. Congratulations on your success!


Gratefully,

Terry King (taking108)

Hi Terry,

Unfortunately there is no option to downgrade your membership at Wealthy Affiliate. Once your account has been upgraded it has had all of the Premium content, tools, website access, and support unlocked. It is not possible to revoke those privileges.

I'd urge you to continue with your membership here at Wealthy Affiliate because you really do need the support, coaching, training, and your websites. Without a website and the training, you're going to have trouble building your business and staying up to date with what's going on in the Online world.

We do have an option that can save you on your membership. You can upgrade to the Yearly Savings Plan and pay a once a year fee of $359 for Premium. This works out to less than $1 a day.

There really isn't anything in the world that will benefit you and your business more than being a Premium member at WA. The support, the tools, the website network...it's unparalleled.

If you'd like some help with your business, let's talk about your websites, your business, and how you can generate some revenue. Your Premium membership here at WA will allow you to build and run your entire business and there are no other expenses that you should need to invest in.

I hope to hear from you soon :)

Carson

Carson, udimi is asking for proof that Stefan Lindbom's traffic is low quality or fake signup bots or fake accounts.

Could you please look over my refers and provide a statement below proving to udimi that I need to get a refund?

Stefan's 180 refers that I got off him failed to convert and should have been worth a minimum of $2,000+ right?

90% of his traffic was from America and most of that was mobile phone traffic.

Can you please write a statement below that I will screenshot as proof that I should get a refund?

They need some sort of proof proving I deserve a refund, thanks, man.
