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!

Hi Carson. I'm busy with my Level 2 Lesson 4 or 5 I finish typing my Content. While i was busy to put in my images my dog jump on the bed and step on my computer. Now my Content is trash with my images. How can i restore it or must i type it all over again?

Just sent an email regarding your price increase. It appears that anyone who updates to premium before 5/11 will pay 299/yr for as long as they stay a member. What about those of us who are already premium members? Will our cost go up to 495/yr. I initially joined under the black Friday special and paid the lower price but my renewal went up to 358/yr. Your email is confusing and seems to favor potential new members over existing members. Please explain.

Thanks, Gary

You are not subject to a price increase Gary. Since you are on the $359 yearly price point, you will be $359 next year when your membership recurs.

And if you want to add an additional year at the $299 per year price point and lock into that price, that could be an option as well. ;)

Carson, thanks so much for reaching out. I found WA thru Gary Horton, and am I glad I did! The other affiliate program I had been looking at was not nearly as user friendly as your site. I couldn't believe how easy it was to upload my picture and photo.

Like your Mom and Dad, I am a former tutor. I found things in public education lately that I felt were inadequate ~ such as, how can a person POSSIBLY hope to solve an algebra problem if they haven't memorized their times tables so they know them better than their own name. Or be able to read without phonics. Or even write in cursive anymore. So I wrote a book on tutoring, homeschooling and homework.

That and my lifelong interest in health and nutrition would be my niches. Unlike you, I am not very good on the computer. I am an artist, so I see the world in colors, just as you no doubt see it in numbers.

But online selling is obviously the future, as I found out by making countless calls and sending out countless emails, none of which were answered. So I am excited to learn and to start! Tomorrow I will go thru and respond to all the followings ~ Wow! is this great or what? Thanks for starting your company, I intend to be aa valuable contributor toward it.

Blessings, Gini Bouwense

Hi Carson,

Here's Maun

I can't log in to my WA account with mac laptop via chrome. Every time I log in I get a message " Success!", but the system isn't let me in. Then it redirect me to the sign up page.

I can log in to my WA account with iPhone and Dell's desktop, not with my mac.

I prefer to work with mac, most files related to WA are in it.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Carlson, hope you are well. I just have a query on becoming an affiliate with other companies. I have just created my website and only have the about me page and the privacy and policy. How would i be able to become an affiliate to other companies if there is no content on my website .Once i become an affiliate with one company then i'm sure i would attract more companies but how would i get that first company
I have the same question.

You should create content on your website. That's why it is very important to choose a niche for your website. This is going to be covered later on in the training, your first focus is going to be the foundation for your business, the content, the rankings and the traffic. Without traffic, there is nobody to promote to.

You cannot apply to any affiliate program with an unfinished, non-traffic website. You should at least have 100 per day visits/traffic before you apply for an affiliate program.

Continue through the training, take action on the lessons and you will see your business piece together.
