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!

Good Morning Carson:
Yes it is Exciting to begin this journey with WA. So much to learn. I have reached out to Nathaniel (my personal coach) for help in getting started.
I have had an interesting life for sure to this point and it's not over till it is over and I have miles to go yet.I served and Electrical Apprenticeship after HS, Then worked as an electrician in New Jersey, which is my home state, grew up in a town called Oakland. From there moved out to Phoenix, AZ. Worked then again as an electrician and got involved in industrial Refrigeration, That was a plus for me especially there in Phoenix, from there moved over to Fresno California, Moved up into the Sierras Shaver Lake area and started work as an Electrician at Sierra Summit Ski Area, definitely one of my better positions, Accoplished many improvements on that Mountain and had so much fun doing it. Winter was the best, skiing and snowmobiling. So Moving on, Many things continued to happen, (Life is a River always moving) So here I am now in New York right on the border of Vermont in a town called Granville. Ready to start my next Journey with Wealthy Affiliate, has a catchy name. I have a lot to read up on and excited to get started, and as a new member yes, I can definitely use help, there is so much I see here to learn. This is a completely new adventure for me and excited to be here to learn and become successful. Thank you Carson looking forward to getting to know you and all my new Team Members.

Hi Carson, I'm trying to do step by step as you suggested it's slow going right now because I've never done this before and not very sure of myself but your directions are easy to follow thank you for that. My question is how do you affiliate yourself with these companies is it automatic or do you have to go there sites and affiliate with them I know of one program I tried where you had to do this in order to be paid hope my question made sense?

Hi, Carson,
I am Samantha,
Ultimately, I found my PayPal account error, but, that is not my error, it is my country laws on money transaction on PayPal. Still, It is not supported the service our country. But, I got help from my other country friend to create PayPal account. Then, I create a account. Then, I changed again my PayPal account as liyanagecascom@gmail.com, if you can, please reconsider my transaction, now, Sure, it will not bounce, Because, the problem is My Country laws.
Please do any action in this regard.

I know this is not your problem, that is my problem with the account of PayPal. I have to pay the membership payment in this month 26 November. I know you trying to do according to my request, but, the problem is mine.
Anyway, now it is corrected. This will last chance, I requested. Please do any action to do transaction
Thanks in advance
Samantha.

I have a question about one of my menu options.
So I added "Reviews" as a PAGE on my site. I dragged all the review blogs i have written and when you drag your mouse over the word "Reviews" a drop bar reveals the 3 review blogs i have written and when you click on any of them it takes you to the review. however when you click on the actual word "Reviews" it just takes you to a blank page. Does anyone know how I can make it so when I click on my review page all of the reviews will appear? thanks.

Also I have made and saved 3 different Review templates but when I go to open them it shows "263 words 4 paragraphs" or whatever the exact numbers are but then when it opens up template is completely bare. i tried restarting my laptop to make sure it wasnt a glitch on my end but maybe i am doing something wrong.

Hi Carson! How do I get Facebook conversion tracking for WA Affiliates? Is this feature working?: Facebook conversion tracking for the WA affiliate program after someone signs up for a new account on WA. I know there's the option here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/share/links under PPC conversions tracking. I've added some code (the code to add the Facebook pixel) with my unique Facebook advertiser ID, but I've had no conversions tracked so far. I have had a few free Starter referrals sign up, but maybe that was before I set this up? Can you tell me exactly what code I should put in that box for where it asks for the "Facebook Conversion Tracking Javascript Snippet"? Thanks!

Hello Carson,
Just dropping in to say hello and introduce myself. Obviously you know my name is Todd. Divorced, single father of 6. 3 of them are out of the house and 3 still at home. The child in my profile pic is my youngest. He is a Christmas baby 🎄 😊. I’m starting this journey as supplementing my income. I have A LOT of spare time on my hands being that we split the time with the kids. Then on average 12-15 days a month. All brand new being I’m a trades guy. I’m your sponge. Let’s get it! 💯

Dear Carson; I asked both you and Kyle yesterday; but Kyle did not really answer my question. First things first I will say; I know you have to have a QSR under 100. I know that. But; what I am asking is; what is a Minimum great Traffic and AVG? To have a Minimum Great Traffic and AVG what numbers should each be? And I also want to ask; to have a Normal Great Traffic and AVG what should the numbers be for each? I already know; QSR under 100. But, I am just wondering about this; please respond?

I’m so brand new... lol 😂 I don’t even know what your saying! For the new borns in Online business, can you elaborate please?
I too thought about books a resale. E-Commerce and physical soft/ hard backs. College books seems to be lucrative. And that would be me niching down. However, I have a few more in front to try before I go all in with books.

I'm just going to say; go to research on your left. Try Jaaxy. Put in a Keyword; a Keyword is a word that you want to make a post about; it should be in the title and first paragraph of your post. But, try Keywords in Jaaxy. And Kyle says in Jaaxy The Keyword should be under 100 for QSR. But, what I am wondering is: Is there a way to tell if Traffic and AVG are great too; each. Traffic and AVG both show up in Jaaxy too.

Hi Carson,

I really love the site content creator especially the image browsing and inserting feature but the copy/pasting bug, where extra newlines will be pasted too, has been quite annoying. Will you guys be able to fix that? I think Kyle was having the same problem when he was making the about me or privacy page.

So, I'm not going to be able to talk to anyone till I upgrade. Right? I'm going to have to wait till I get the job I took yesterday to get started. Will I at least have access to the training I started and move forward with building a site and get off the ground, and upgrade as I can?

Hi Brad - if you are in your first 7 days of joining then you'll be able to chat with people within the training, in live chat, through blog posts and here on profiles of others. You have access to course 1 of 5 of our Certification training, and course 1 of 7 of Affiliate Bootcamp. You can absolutely get started but you'll want to seriously consider upgrading to Premium so that you can take full advantage of what is available here at WA. Continued support, screaming fast profit ready websites, and all of the step-by-step training that you'll need to really get the ball rolling with your online biz. Let me know if you have questions or need a hand with anything.

Dear Carson; I wanted to ask you; what would be the minimum AVG and Traffic in Jaaxy that would be great? What I mean by that; AVG and Traffic separately. What numbers should they be to be great? Also I want to ask; the normal AVG and Traffic in Jaaxy? For those what would be great? I know Jaaxy sort of says Great. But, it says it for mostly everything. Like Kyle says: "Under 100 QSR is Great". So, I am just wondering? For Traffic and AVG; what would be great? Both the minimum and the normal.

Thank you;

Hey Carson
I hope you have or have had a nice day, I am being stuck in a position and I will be very grateful if you help me with this.
Because of the training videos you posted, I became very interested in the football snack helmet site and decided to launch a site that sells volleyball equipment with the help of links from other sites such as Amazon.
But the problem I have is that I have to attract traffic and audience based on the articles I post, and since my site has a store side, I think there is very little subjects that can be said about volleyball I and I don't know how to attract the audience, and on the other hand partners with Affiliate programs like nike or adidas and... don't agree with my site to put their products on my site because my site traffic is low.
I don't know what to do and have no idea.

Hi Ehsan,

There are always things that people are looking for related to any topic. Volleyball equipment will be vast, there's nets, balls, clothing, kneepads etc, you could have a beach section for beach related equipment and there are likely 1000's of nets and balls and products that you can review. How to setup nets, how to train for spiking, serving, drills, exercises, etc.

There's a lot that you can say about volleyball related to equipment. You have to determine who your audience is, what questions they have, how you can help them, and then what you can recommend to them in the form of affiliate products/links.

I have a simple question. I am at a point in the lessons about content on my website. What I do not understand is that if my niche is to sell heating and air conditioning filters on my website than what kind of writing content is there to selling air filters. I may be wrong here but my thoughts are that I find affiliates that would pay me a commission on every customer that I refer to them though my site for a sale and I get a commission on each sale. Is that not how it works. So I am confused . I have not seen any place to find Affiliates so far and how to make up a website detailing different products for sale. Am I thinking ahead of the game and this will follow. I am at a lose here please explain what am I missing her. Very truly Bill

Hi William,

Great to hear from you. Your audience is vast as there are so many questions that people may be searching for related to air filters. There's all of the health benefits, types of filters, types of applications, etc. When choosing your niche you are choosing an audience looking for something specific. Who are the people that are looking for air filter related info, what info are they after?

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!

Hello Carson, It is a pleasure to meet you.
guess we have loving to learn in common and that is exactly why I am here. I have a business concept which I know will rake in the cash. I know the market, what the advertisers and readers want, but getting this concept off the ground on my own is a drag.
I started studying web design as I would love to do design my own site. Sitting with a designer who has no vision is draining lol.
Regardless, it seems I am finally @ the right place.

Thank you for the welcome, I hope to grow in knowledge within the W.A community.

Hey you all I am very saddened about the event that has took place. I was offered a job last month to ship packages off to their right destination. Coming out of college I was very excited and very happy. This job ensure $3000 a month $1500 base salary plus $50 every package. I've gotten an apartment and a car with the help of my grandmother. Thinking that this job would set me up for my young life I was saddened to find the image you see above. Saying the job is a scam 💔😔 and now I have no idea what I can do. I have rent and a car payment to make. I have nothing else and I can't run to my family. I thought this was a blessing from god. This hurts me deep down in my soul. I don't know where to look or what to do next.

Thanks, Carson! What features will I have on the starter plan after I get out of my first 7 day period? I ask because I want to know if I can promote the ability to have interactivity with the community for more than 7 days for free members, too. Can I? Thanks! Eric
Reply
Carson Premium
Hi Eric,

After the initial 7 days, Starter members still have access to the 10 lessons in Course #1 of the Online Entrepreneur Certification training. You will not have the ability to ask questions within the training, live chat, or within other communication platforms in the system though. The Starter membership is meant to help you get started and familiarize yourself with what we offer at WA, but going Premium is absolutely what you should be considering if you are going to be building an online business going forward. You'll need the training, tools, support, hosting, and website features.

Hope this answers your questions.

It answers it perfectly. Thanks so much! Correct me if I'm wrong... but someone in a less developed country could, if perhaps lucky, use the two free sites offered in the free Starter membership and start to generate an income that way, if they can't afford the Premium membership, right?
Reply
Carson Premium
Hi Eric - any website could be used to generate income and the sites that Starter members get with their membership can certainly earn. What folks will want however, is to build a site on their own domain which requires premium. They will also need course #2-5 of the certification training in order to lear how to rank, get traffic, and turn their website visitors into income generators. Premium is the lowest cost of any program online. $19 for the first month then just $49 thereafter. Even cheaper if someone chooses the yearly option and pays up front.

I'm glad to see that you're up and running with Premium and have everything you need to grow your biz. I look forward to helping out when needed :)

You're welcome! Do know that all niches have a ton of opportunity within them. There are 3.75 BILLION people online and we are all now more connected than ever. This is the audience you are dealing with the Internet and even some of the most obscure niches have millions of people interested in them.

You should read about this here within a blog post I recently created on this exactly topic: YOU make a niche profitable and that is why it is important that you decide on a niche that you are interested in/passionate about. It will make the journey that much more fun and exciting. ;)

Thanks for the response, Carson. I just spent 5 hours researching about my article and I was enjoying every moment of it. I am only half way done. I was thinking to myseld that even if I don’t make money from it the knowledge from the research alone is already so valuable to me. I just read your post and I am confident that if I spend time and produce quality content, it will be profitable. I was anxious about the money making side but I am not anymore. I am not at the money making part of the training yet but I am certain that it will be just as great as the other content.

Hi Trevor,

Just wanting to check and see if you've been able to move your website over to WA yet? You do not necessarily need to move your domain over to our registration service, as you can very easily point the domain's DNS to our servers. This is the easiest way to get your domain hosted here at WA. Our engineers through our SiteSupport ticketing system will help you migrate the actual site files and database etc.

Hey Carson, How's it going?

I followed all the training, and since I have built an awesome website, but what happened is I didn't fully understand how to write my home titles.

Now, five months later my site started boosting in traffic. But, I had to redo my home titles because I started ranking for a keyword that didn't make much sense. The reason for this is I focused everything I had on writing content, for the last 5 months.

It was when It went up that I had to change it because I thought of a final name and keyword description.

Now, my traffic has dropped all the way back down to 10 visits per day; I know spewin.

Do you know how long it will take again to re rank for my new home title keyword? also if this is bad for my site?

Thanks Carson,

Regards,

Michael V.

Following Trish's advice, here is Carsons reply to a similar question to mine. Effectively you only get a cash question if it has not received the number of comments requested.

Hi Unuafe,

Great to hear from you! I will take a few moments to explain further how Cash Credits work for Certified Commenters within the SiteComments platform.

ALL WA members who are Certified Commenters have an opportunity to earn Cash Credits for comments left in the system. When there are comments that are in NEED of new comments and have not had their requested number of comments delivered, these requests will offer Cash Credits on every other comment that is offered.

However, there are situations when requests have been 100% fulfilled and they are not being offered BONUS comments. In these situations Cash Comments are not granted.

Any time a Cash Credit opportunity is available, Certified Commenters will see a red "$0.50 Credit" label on the comment page associated with the particular comment. If there is no label, then there is no Cash Credit available for that particular comment.

It's awesome that you are a Certified commenter and we are working on numerous projects that folks with this status will be able to take advantage of to earn revenue. We're also working to integrate the SiteComment system into other platforms at WA so that folks can request comments more easily and efficiently. You've done an absolutely fantastic job of offering comments and you will likely find that most of the time you will be offered Cash Credits every other comment that is displayed.

I hope this helps and fills in a few questions you had about the Cash Credit opportunities in the SiteComments platform.

If you have further questions, please let me know and I will be happy to answer them for you.

Have a great day!

Hello Carson,

I've just published the first proper article on my website, and ran the spelling/grammar check before publishing the post. It seems to be quite a comprehensive app overall, but it does have a real bias towards American/Canadian spellings for a lot of words. As I'm British, is there a way to switch this preference to UK English - and if not right now, will you be implementing this in the future?

Thanks A Lot - SIMON

Hi Carson Could you rate my domain name; alternatives to the corporate world and give me as assessment whether it has keywords, is brandable or a hybrid. I am still yet to understand keyword research but at the same time l want to what the domain actually is. Also, are you able to check the About Me Page and let me know if I can cull information from there that can be keywords or is there is information that l can turn into a blog? I just want an expert's opinion since l am still learning and getting the hang of things. I guess practice makes perfect hey.

Dear Carrson; I am going to ask Kyle this too; is it okay if I have for my Gravatar the Image of a Fictional Character? I`ll say here; I didn`t know at first; and I got kicked off of Xing.com for putting up an Image of a Fictional Character; I tried getting back in contact with Xing.com to no avail. So, I am asking; can I please put up the Image of a Fictional Character as my Gravatar on Wealthy Affiliate?

HI Carson
Thank you for welcoming me. I have questions...
Before I become a premium member and/or proceed with affiliate marketing would it be wise to have a separate bank act . To use for both paying the expense if membership and down the road earning revenue?

Secondly,my website is dress easy which will be based around adaptive clothing but in terms of having content to continually write about is that to narrow do you think? Should I go a bit broader and do a blog or page name that will encompass all manner of adaptive products instead?
Thoughts appreciated
Thanks

You're welcome Malena!

Income that you earn online will be claimed as personal income when starting out. It will depend where you are located in the world as to what rules apply, but it will be based on your local tax rules and regulations. It is typically going to be claimed as personal income or "sole proprietor".

But yeah, you are responsible for claiming any income you earn. As for setting up a business or running income through another bank account, is completely up to you and local regulations. :)

In respect to your second question, I don't recommend broadening your niche here. When I go to do research on a given niche to come up with concepts for keywords (and ultimately content), I ask a few questions of my niche.

**What are some products/services that people are purchasing in your niche?
**What are some questions they are asking?
**What are some problems they are having?
**What are some "how to's" that are useful?
**What are some trending topics in your niche?

Do some research, it could be as simple as a Google search to uncover a lot of these items. This will open your doors to essentially unlimited ideas and concepts. Hope this helps you out here Malena!

This industry was new to everyone at one point, myself included. Back when I started I had no knowledge of the Internet business and this. As you move forward, you will get the hang of this and things that you are overwhelmed with by now, will become second nature.

You can learn this and I can assure that everything you need is here at WA to create any level of success you want! I really do look forward to seeing you progress as you move forward Karen! Let me know if you need a hand if you ever feel even a bit stuck.

Hi Carson. It's nice to hear from you. I thank you very much for your commitment here at WA and of course for your kindness for helping people to improve their life. About myself, I don't know from where to start or to say because it will take a lot of time. Anyway, as we proceed in this journey we'll know each other and work together in a positive way.

They say they can not approve me until I get this fixed.

Hi Carson,

I have been unable to pay for my domain renewals. For some reason the system will not hold my card information, and I am not seeing that I'm being charged for the renewal. Day 3 now.

My businesses are hosted on this, and time is approaching the expiration date.

Yeah, that is most definitely the direction you could head with your niche. If this is something that you are passionate about, definitely go for it Cody!

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

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

If you ever need anything at all going forward, I am personally here to help you out so feel free to drop me a reply to this post.

I sold an item on my website and did not receive commission from Amazon! Am I doing something wrong per the response from Amazon?
Hello John,

This is Kara with the Amazon Associates Program. I hope you are doing well today!

I reviewed your Associates Account/ID: eshoppertizes-20 from 9/16/19-10/14/19, and found the majority of the items listed in your account's Orders Report were marked by our system as ineligible for Associates advertising fees.

Typically referred orders can be marked because our system recognized the orders were placed by the Associate, or on their behalf. This can also happen if we have determined that the orders resulted from you requesting or encouraging your friends, relatives, or other people you know to purchase products through your Special Links. Due to the proprietary nature of the way we make these determinations, we can't share the full list of criteria by which we detect these ineligible orders.

The reason behind this is that the Amazon.com Associates Program is an advertising program rather than a discount program. Our goal is to have our associates refer new customers to us in return for advertising fees. Associates are not eligible for advertising fees when they place orders themselves, or ask people they know to routinely place orders through their links so they can earn advertising fees.


Not Happy!!

Hello Carson,

Do you think Wealthy Affiliate can pay it's members with PayPal's Xoom Service? It's like sending money directly to my bank account from Wealthy Affiliate's PayPal instead of sending it via wire transfer. PayPal itself is encouraging it's users to use it. You can see that in the video below:

https://youtu.be/NW2FsJzGgXo

So I hope you won't shy away from sending money with it. 🙂

Best regards.

Dear Carson; I am asking Kyle too; I have to apologize to you. I got annoyed; and maybe I didn't explain enough. But, I am just hoping for either a "yes" or "no" answer whether I can put my E-Books as the subject of posts? But, I will say; my questions have weight. Can you please look them over? But, I apologize if the way I asked was rude? And I will say here too; my E-Books are Expert Advice to help Women get into whatever shape they want. I quote experts in these books; and give links to those experts web pages; so I think I am helping Women with these E-Books.

And I am putting the links to my E-Books again: If you want to check them out? Feel free to.

Hey Carson,

A few months ago I contacted you about not being able to get paid via PayPal as I'm from Bangladesh. So you said that you can send me amounts over $1000 via wire transfer if I have that amount in my account. After much investigation I've learned that you can't wire money to a Bangladeshi bank. So I can't get paid via wire transfer as well. You can however send me money via PayPal's Xoom service. All you have to do is login to this website using your PayPal login credentials:
https://www.xoom.com/

Then you can send the amount you see fit to my bank account after I give you my:
• Bank name
• Account number
• Full name as it appears on my bank account or official ID
• Full address
• Valid phone number, including the area code

In our previous exchanges when I asked you to do business with another payment option for users like me you said that alternate payment experiences can adversely impact your brand, so you are not willing to compromise. But this time you're not compromising anything. You're sending me money with the payment options you already use just in a way that is as hasslesome as wiring money. So I hope you won't shy away from doing this. You can even find the option to send money via Xoom on your PayPal account. Click Send & Request > Send to friends and family internationally > Bangladesh > Deposit to a bank. Then PayPal will take you to Xoom and you have to do the rest there. I will be anxiously waiting to hear you say "yes" to this. Hope you won't disappoint.

Best regards.

Dear Carson: I am wondering; is it okay for me to put up posts about my own Products? You see; when I started WA; I had products I was trying to sell. But, as I got used to it at WA; I started getting into Amazon Associates. Now, I am wondering? Is it okay for me to put up posts about my own products? In the training you ask for us to create posts; can I post about my Products?

Not only that; but I want to ask you and Members here to look over the free part of my products; if you have time? And please tell me words; and what I should be doing to get Women to buy my Products? I am just wondering if Members can give me suggestions on what I should say and advertise to sell my Products?

And I will ask once again: Carson; for completing the training; is it okay if I do a post about my Products? And can Members look and advise me how to sell them? And if Members want to buy them too? That is okay. Oh, it is late: I just want to say too: These are E-Books. And I contacted Kyle about this too.

Welcome. In each and every case the people you now admire, respect, maybe even envy; each had attitudes and beliefs that allowed them to make the choices, decisions and take the actions that brought them to the esteemed place they now hold.

But it always comes down to choosing to ACT! Because they ACTED, step by step, they slowly moved towards their destination. It’s rarely quick or easy, but with consistent positive, relentless action, SUCCESS IS INEVITABLE!

Just click <https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/act4profit/comments >

No matter how great your potential, your intellect or how great an opportunity may be… without ACTION it just doesn’t matter… success or lack thereof always dependent on choices… the choice to act or not act!

Hello Carson,

I'd like to request little help about one of my referral earnings
I set up my PayPal email address liyanagesama1975@gmail.com before 2019-07-01, because, I want to change, earnings and Payment done different PayPal account,
Then,
one day,
I found payment history, my money sent to liyanagesama1975@gmail.com PayPal after configuration it.

Before that day, or still, I never take money from PayPal, But, I paid for several.

After receiving notice on payment history(2019-07-01 08:40:04 $ 244.50), I logon to mail address and check mail, I received a message, the money about $244.50 from Wealthyaffiliate, Then, I clicked the message, to put the money to my Paypal account, after clicking the mail message, it says,

The Wealthy Affiliate canceled this PayPal payment:

Amount: $244.50 USD

Note: Wealthy Affiliate commissions as of June 30, 2019.

I think it will be my mistake, But, Now, I changed my payment Paypal account, as the last one. I want to resend my money on my current Paypal account of rathnasaman@gmail.com

Please do any action in this regard, I highly appreciate your patience in this matter.
Thanks so much,

Samantha

Hi Samantha,

Unfortunately your payment was denied by Paypal and send back to us. You will want to contact Paypal to ask them why you were unable to claim your payment that was made on July 1st. I can certainly resend the payment after you contact Paypal and verify that your account can accept payments.

Hello Carson I just want to introduce myself and let you know that I am looking forward to working my way through this course and getting my business set up. I cannot take advantage of the discount but was wondering if I can get my business earning money with my free account and then become a premium member ?
Reply
Carson Premium
Hey Louise, great to have you here. To be honest with you, there is no better way to build a business or create significant success than within the online world and you have absolutely everything you need here at WA to do this (including support and coaching from me directly).

Yes, you can earn money on the free membership. In saying this, generating money in the first week or month prior as a Starter is like having an your introduction course to becoming a surgeon and expecting to perform surgery within the first month.

The first month is typically your foundation building stage. In order to build a website that earns you consistent revenue, you need this foundation. After this, you are going to start seeing traffic and as you build this out, there are many different ways in which you can generate revenue.

Personally it took me into my 3rd month of busting my butt to make my first dollar online, by month 6 though I was making consistent income and by the year mark, I was almost full time.

But guess what would have happened if I quit during those first two "trying" months or had instant revenue expectations. I would not be where I am at today (going on 17 years full time!). Just wanted to put things into perspective for you.

I am in this journey with you Louise, so is the community here at WA. If you want to jump in, work hard, take action, and persist.

You will have some awesome things accomplished by the time you finish just the first 10 lessons of the getting started training and you will be prepared to build a very successful business online within the Premium membership.

But do upgrade at your own pace and take action on the tasks. Action is what will lead you to success!

Great profile about yourself and your passion. I look forward to progressing with WA and establishing a lucrative business on the internet to reach my goals and dreams. Although I sell health supplements through a dropship company on Amazon and Ebay the fees are taking a big chunk of my profits, so I'm only making about a quarter of what I would be making if my website was getting the activity that I get on Amazon and Ebay, hence I have joined WA to see if I could learn some other strategies to promote the website, find another niche, or a complete new way forward to having a lucrative online business. Thanks for this platform and great community of people looking to succeed in business. Bless you.

If you don't have the budget to upgrade at the moment, that is completely fine. You should work through the Getting Started training (within the "Get Started Here" button in the menu) and take action.

By lesson 4 you are going to have your own niche website up and running. This is the starting point of your business Khadija, and is the foundation that is going to lead you to success down the road.

When you are ready to upgrade, I know you are going to absolutely love it but at your own pace.

Hi Carson
I have a tech question about hosting.
in order to speedup my site, as suggested almost everywhere on the WP sites, I want to use a CDN for my site hosted at WA.
As a side benefit a CDN helps for security and performance by adding an additional layer of protection against DDOS attacks and by distributing the traffic on multiple locations and servers.
Looking around I see that the most popular CDN service out there is Cloudflare, mostly because it has a pretty complete and comprehensive free plan.
I had implemented Cloudflare settings as per their instructions for my site and evetything was working fine for a couple of weeks,
Then, all of a sudden, my site was disabled here at WA and 2 days later DELETED.
I came to know this (HARD)way that, for no explicable reasion, here at WA you forbid changing the DNS settings to point to another DNS, as prescribed by Cloudflare.
Now to my questions
1) why it is forbidden? also considering that almost every other hosting provider allow it and even provide tutorials on how to do it.
2) Which alternative approach can I consider in order to profit of Cloudflare CDN
thanks
Francesco

Carson Premium
Hi Francesco,

We have underlying technology that protects against DDOS attacks, and serves pages in the absolute fastest possible way using our Hardware caching platform SiteSpeed. You should be getting high 90's or 100/100 for Google Pagespeed analysis on our hosting. If you're not then let me know and I can have a look at your site. We do not offer a CDN, but it's not required to get perfect scores from Google on page speed.

In regards to DNS - you can absolutely host your website at another web host, but as mentioned above, we have a lot of underlying technology delivering your website in the fastest way possible. Moving DNS to cloud flare would break your site entirely with our custom setup.

With WA hosting, you do not need a CDN to get perfect speed scores.

If you are not getting perfect scores, then it's plugin or theme related.

Also, if you would like your websites at WA moved to our brand new server class, then you can contact SiteSupport to ask for that to happen. We are migrating the entire WA hosting platform to new severs which we will be announcing very soon, but you can request to be upgraded now if you prefer.

Somehow I was asking everybody; and the question box wouldn`t accept this question; so I am asking it here. I tried asking Kyle; but I think he was busy; and I am checking this in Google; but I am still confused. For instance when I try the search without quotes I get a different answer from when I do the search in Google with Quotes. But, I am just wondering; if I get <10 in Avg and Traffic; should I use it? Or should I go with big numbers? And I am wondering too; as said; in Google; the amount of pages come out different when I use quotes; should I use quotes? Do the search without quotes? Or do both?

I remember showing my girlfriend a review of WA but when I joined, I typed the address directly into the address bar. On top of that, this Referrer is yet to contact me about anything.

After having recieved your reply in such a timely manner I would like to thank you for your vote of confidence and support with regards to the very brief and minor correspondence that we have had. I wrote your partner Kyle this same message.I look forward to the opportunity to build a prosperous and long lasting business relationship. I am no stranger to hard work and dedication, I started my own construction business at 26 years old and built it into a very fine company with over 30 employees, so I know what it requires to become successful. Hard work and dedication will suffice, but as you and I know, there’s a lot more that needs to go into it, that’s why I choose your business platform. You get out of life or business what you put into it, so far from what I’ve seen, hopefully this business will come to fruition. Thank you very much.

Is there something wrong with the system or is there something I am doing wrong?

Hey Carson,

I put this question to the community several days ago and didn't get any definitive solutions, so that's why I'm contacting you.

When I attempt to join the Rehab Scout affiliate program from Wealthy Affiliate, it sends me to a sign up page for Commission Junction. Since I'm already a member there, I click the "log in" link and it takes me right back to the sign in page for CJ. I've tried this while logged into Commission Junction and not logged in. Nothing changes. I've also tried it with two different computers running completely different operating systems and different browsers, with the same results.

Now, if Wealthy Affiliate doesn`t want to mail Degrees to those who finish the training? Would it be possible that Wealthy Affiliate makes a Document that Members could Download? Let`s say a Degree? What if Wealthy Affiliate made a Document that could be downloaded? And if Wealthy Affiliate wants to do that? Maybe you could make a Document that could be printed? Either in Black and White or in color? I have a black and white printer; so if you do; please leave the option to print in black and white.

Hello Carson: Thanks for the welcome, nice to hear from you.

I have been looking for a company to join for about a year no, so I have been learning a lot. Then, the other day I stumbled on this platform, so far I am impressed with the community here.

I have had my own Wellness Business and built a web page on weebly about 4 yrs ago. Am not an expert but am always ready to learn.

Hi Carson, Thank you for getting in touch and providing your bio. Great to make your acquaintance, but I really do need one to one coaching to actually begin to understand the process required to start making money on line. I am recovering from a stroke which left me mentally disabled. I am forever confused about the slightest information approch. That being said, I do have a reasonable working brain, that through repetition, will grasp simple ideas when broken down in bitesize.

Hello Carson, My name is Brendah from Uganda. I joined WA two months ago and tried to work and got afew cash credits. Then it was time to withdraw and I found out that I cant because every withdrawal is through paypal. Yet when I was joining, I was told that there are differnt ways I can get paid one of them was checks, the other was deposits. I need a solution to this since I want to continue working with the program, I will need to know how I will be getting what am working for. I will be glad if this time, I get an answer from you.

Hi Brendah, All affiliate programs and networks have their own payout methods. Some send cheques, some bank wires and direct deposits, others Paypal. If you are promoting WA, we have an affiliate program which pays out via Paypal. We can also send a bank wire when commissions reach $500USD or more. If you wish to use that method then please contact me via private message when you reach this amount and we can setup a wire for you.

We truly are a warm and welcoming community here at WA Mavis, you have access to lots of experts and help every step of the way! If you ever do need a hand with anything, you have an entire community of support behind you (myself included)! :)

You can build a website directly through the SiteBuilder platform here at Wealthy Affiliate. You will find this within the main menu, under Websites => SiteBuilder. From there you can build websites on both the free .siterubix.com domain (starter or premium member), or on your own domains (if you are a premium member).

This is covered in lesson 4 of the core Online Entrepreneur Certification training, but if you want the direct training on how to build a website I recommend you check out the following training. If you have any further questions about building your website, do let me know.

Hi Carson,

I have sent two emails to Kyle who hasn't responded. I have put over $8000 over the last 15 years trying to become a successful affiliate marketer, and have not any success even after following each course. Money is very tight, and I will be pursuing a Master's Degree starting in October. I asked to cancel my subscription on August 21, and got charged $49.00 on September 14. I asked Kyle again to cancel my membership and refund me the $49.00 since I asked before August 21. I need to use that money to pay for renewal dues for my Toastmaster's Public Speaking club due by the end of the month. Please have someone cancel my account, and refund me.

Hi Michael,

Sorry to hear that you've invested so much into learning how to build an online business without any return. Before you leave WA, do you want any help? I mean, you're certainly interested in being an online business owner, but if you are not achieving success and making profit then perhaps I can help?

There is NO other program or service in the world that will offer better training, tools, or support to you with building an online business. I'm more than happy to help if you like.

Let me know,

Hello Carle/Carlson
I'm trying to upgrade to premium membership ,but the system doesn't allow me to process a payment .
I wanted to pay using a credit card(but mine is a debit card not a credit card).
My PayPal account is limited, so I'm unable to use PayPal.
Is there any other method I can use to pay?

If you want to upgrade to Premium, you can either do so through Paypal (which accepts many different types of payment) or you can do so through credit card. Unfortunately those are our only methods of payment at this point. Hope this clarifies for you Philiswa!

Hello Carlson.
I have bought a ready made store 6 mnths ago as I thought that it will bring me financial stability. The store is already loaded with goods e.g. travel accessories....bags,blankets,pillows, booking of flights and hotels etc.
It's been 6 months now I bought this store, but I haven't made even a single sale,because I'm not familiar with selling on internet.
I have a website for this store...but nothing is happening .

Please kindly assist me on how to make this business successful.

Hello Carson......thank you very much! I am serious about creating a successful unlike business. By now I tend to believe that I have made the right decision to join WA.

My question at this time is..... When do I start to monetize my website or do I just go about writing and posting articles?

I have already completed the first 10 lessons and is on point up to now.

Anticipating your response. Have a great day!

If you are looking to build a long term and very much sustainable business you are in the right place. I really do look forward to working with you Claudia. :)

You can start adding affiliate links to your website fairly early on, but you ideally want to centralize them within your reviews. You don't want to have affiliate links on every single page of your site that will impact your rankings adversely.

Affiliate links are covered within Level 3 of the training for a reason, initially you want to build out a solid base of content and once you have established this and perhaps a little traffic, then you can start to focus more on product reviews, affiliate link integration, etc.

Hi Carson & the group,
As a Newbie, I wanted to Introduce myself to you & your team/followers. A big THANK you for your initial/first message/email to me. (I do not yet understand the verbiage of Wealthy Affiliate quite yet LOL) I read the ENTIRE lengthy msg as well as ALL the links. This was very informational on the “Premium” level. After educating myself via your msg, I intend to upgrade in the next 2 days.
I am going to treat this like an online college course. I will go to my office studying/doing the Premium Lessons, M-F spending 9am - 1pm, except on days that I must travel to the SF VA Hospital Women’s Center, 3 hours away from where I live. I had several life threatening health issues for the last several years. They are still trying to figure out WHAT is causing one issue.
I did not have the strength to lift my arms to wash my very long investment hair, so it had to be cut off... hence the picture selected for this msg. I am trimming & coloring in the next few days & will replace.
For most women, chopping off their hair combined with almost dying, is not great for one’s public self esteem. I am BLESSED to be feeling much better, but do not have the previous stamina, energy wise. Working thru all this, it was not my intention to wander thru the Internet & find another item to do, when I located your website.
I started to msg you with a request to wait a few months to join. I thought about it & decided that like Nike “just do it!”. I do not voice my concerns when others say over & over “I am trying”. Although there are some occasions for various reasons people say “they are trying”, I really believe most people are really saying: “I am fearful so I am saying I am trying, so that you will not ask further Qs & go away”. NOT judging them, just my personal opinion. Like Nike, get over yourself, be brave & “just do it.
My 30+ year business has been on hold for several years due to my health. After reading your first msg, I decided fully educating myself via your Premium training, would be perfect as I regain my strength. I appreciate this opportunity.
I do not go out in the public half cocked, unprepared & speaking on things I know very little about. I would not have the strength to drive, locate a parking spot & walk endlessly around a college campus. Since I have educated, motivated & mentored staff, owners & biz contacts, your online training is a real treat for me. I am not a selfish person, but it is a VERY different position for me to prepare nothing & be educated via your training. I am sooooo grateful for accidentally bumping into your website. I am looking at this training as a present to myself!!!
Prior to building several new websites with you, I am going to be thinking about a few things that I love doing, that others would pay me big bucks to do. Some I have already done & will continue to do. I have been successful creating big opportunities for myself. I am blessed to be generally accepted & appreciated by new business contacts. I CARE & I LISTEN. People buy from those they trust & feel comfortable with. The public eventually tires of people who sound great at first, but do not provide what they promise.
Since ALL my previous biz interests have been referrals or face to face, my website has just been for my clients & potential clients, to locate my contact info, if they misplaced my biz card. I have absolutely no idea how to create a strong online business website/s. I am excited to learn. THANK you!
Respectfully,
Lauren Sevigny (pronounced “7yeaaaa)

Hi Carson,

My first keyword "Magic" is not any good and I'd like to know if there us a way to delete the original website. I visited Jaxxy and found what appears to be a pretty good keyword phrase.

Can't remember the titles of each column. The first column for that phrase had over 6000+ , the second column had in excess of 1000, and the third QSR (I remember competition) had a figure of 59. .. less than 100. Keyword phrase: 'make money online home' .

'Trying to get a decent website started. So I kind of wanted to start from scratch.

Would appreciate you response regarding the deletion of the website. Still rather new and trying to get started. Thanking you in advance.

As a Premium member, you have access to the upgraded Jaaxy Lite level membership. This grants you access to all of the features and platforms within the Research tab (the full Jaaxy Suite) here at WA.

There are also paid versions of Jaaxy, Pro and Enterprise. These are completely optional and they are geared towards more advanced keyword and research activities and more serious affiliate marketers.

I hope this clarifies for you here Derek. Let me know if you have any further questions.

How do I verify my website to an affiliate? Here are the directions I'm given...To verify that you own a site, you have two options to select from:
• Option # 1 -Add a <meta> tag to your home page (proving that you have access to the source files). To use this method, you must be able to edit the HTML code of your site's pages. <meta name="fo-verify" content="f512a908-1b94-4509-8422-b5ac03bd47cc">

•Option # 2 - Upload an HTML file to your server. To use this method, you must be able to upload new files to your server. Download HTML Verification File


After placing the meta tag on you home page or the file in the root of your website directory, return to this section and click the button below to verify your site.

Hope you're well. I'm loving your platform and all it provides, but I'm running low on money to afford it at the moment and would just like to pause my account until I can afford it again if that's ok.

I tried contacting your support team but they're not replying to me about this, is it possible to have this done?

Unfortunately, you cannot downgrade to Starter, however you will be able to resubscribe to your Premium account at any time and reconnect your membership (when you can make it back). ;)

If you need to cancel you can do so through the following link:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/home/my_profile

We also host your website for 30 days beyond the cut off date, which gives you time to still work on it or move it to another host in the meantime.

Hope this clarifies for you Scott!

Hi Carson,

Thanks for following me. I followed ya back.

So far, I've been impressed with WA. I've not up-graded to Premium yet, but it's on my mind.

I know that selling online is not about building a webpage and taking orders. It takes time and energy and a perfect product/market alignment.

NOTE: I am currently at the Lesson 4 of building your own website. I already have a few WordPress sites that I manage, but someone else actually "built" for me. But they do not seem to draw much traffic.

I've never built one from scratch, on my own with direction, so I hope the WA teachings will be a turning point toward success for me.

Thanks for all your do and have done!

Thank you so much for welcoming me. I have studying affiliate marketing since 2009, have invested and have not been successful yet. Its been a long struggle and now there are too many scammers and saboteurs..
I guess I can also blame it my inconsistency too. I am back in it right and really want to be successful this time.

I would like to know if your platform has some charges for joining you?
How can I be assured of success because ALL the platforms if have been promised great things and ended up being silent after collecting payments. Those that were without charge were not providing enough guidance, but are quick to kick its members on the slightest of errors.....

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

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

The membership that you are on is a Starter membership, which is completely free. There is one upgrade that you can make here and it is the Premium membership, which is the key to the community. Premium is $19 the first month, then it is $49 per month after the first month.

This includes absolutely everything you need to create and grow a business online from the training, weekly live classes, he support, the tools, the websites/hosting, the mentoring, network, exclusive access to all updates...you name it.

We also have a 6 month option for $234 which works out to be $39 per month when paid in full, and a yearly option of $359 which is a big discount and that works out to be $29 per month when paid in full. You can choose either or.

Absolutely everything you need is here at Wealthy Affiliate to create and grow your business to any level online. I really do look forward to working with you and as you move forward you are really going to see your business come together.

It is only natural to be a little skeptical as there are so many scams out there, but I know that we are going to be able to prove you wrong and that you are going to love the community here at WA.

If you ever need a hand with anything, please do let me know Michael. ;)

Dear Carson: Sorry to bother you again; but I want to ask? Can you please give me some advice on using Google Adsense? I am just wondering if you can give me a few early tips? I want to say too; I filled out categories and SEO on my Site. You might want to have Members do that early; if it is important? But, can you please give me some tips on Google Adsense? I asked Kyle too.

Dear Carson: I wanted to ask a few things again: First things first; please tell me what I have to do after: "Appearance, Themes" and then Customize? I don`t know what to do? I already went through The "Featured Image" and I figured that out. But, now I want to know exactly what I do after Customize?

I also want to ask: Please tell me how to delete an Image? And please give me instructions? I don`t want to fool around and do something wrong.

I also wanted to ask; some of my Images are shown without the head showing. Is there any way to edit an Image so that I can get the head to show? I asked Kyle about this too.

How do I transfer a domain from WA to WA? The reason why I am asking is I recently had to let my original account Lonnie32 expire. I really like being with WA just want to transfer my site afterautopartsmarket to my new account Lonnie33.

I have already sent two messages about this question but no response. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Dear Carson; I think I introduced myself: If not; I go by michaelw777. Nice to meet you. At any rate; I asked Kyle this too; is there any way to delete images that I have saved on Wealthy Affiliate that I don`t want anymore. Is there any way to delete Images I don`t want anymore? And if there is not? Can you set up a way to do it?

Thanks:

I mean i didnt even log into my Wealthy Affiliate properly after being write access revoked. I dont understand why my write access has been revoked. Kyle said they removed all the posts which contains my website URL. My site support is blocked. I cant move forward. I mean i dont know what to do forward. I stayed at home today thinking that i could finish up my articles, but now my site support is blocked.

I would be very much thankful. Help me get my write access back. So.i can contact site support. I am struck. And please let me know why i am getting write acces revoked.

Great to have you here at WA Sri!

This industry was new to everyone at one point, myself included. Back when I started I had no knowledge of the Internet business and this. As you move forward, you will get the hang of this and things that you are overwhelmed with by now, will become second nature.

You can learn this and I can assure that everything you need is here at WA to create any level of success you want! I really do look forward to seeing you progress as you move forward Sri! Let me know if you need a hand if you ever feel even a bit stuck.

Hello, Carson. Thanks for your comments. I suppose you have seen my profile, so I won't say a lot more about myself, except to say that I have futilely hooked up with some other programs that did not work out for me. At 81 it may be a bit late in life for me, but I do sincerely believe I can succeed with Wealthy Affiliates. Just wish I had discovered you guys a long time ago - even when I was young like you and your lovely family. I have started my website, actually it looks like I started one even before I joined. Don't know it that's possible, but that's the way it looks. Obviously, although I know that I simply have to be patient and persevere, I need help to understand how to customize it. I have been watching Kyle's 2 hour video, and have downloaded some key words for the Dog training website, but I am still very much a novice when it comes to knowing everything about to do all of this on my computer. I am excited though, and appreciate you and Kyle reaching out to me.
I must say I am counting on you guys. Thank you.

I can appreciate that Earl, most companies out there are in the business of making money at any cost unfortunately (in particular in this space). Not a day goes by where I am not working with someone that is jaded by the entire industry because of past experiences.

I can tell you that we different, we care, and we truly have you and your long term success in our best interest. Instead of me telling you though, I would rather prove it and let the community and everything within the platform speak for itself.

You can customize your website if you go to Appearance => Themes (and "customize" for your particular theme ) within the back office of your website, you will likely see your home page header there which you can upload an image for.

There are typically many other settings in there as well that you can use to manipulate theme colours, font colours, theme images, logos, menus, structure/layout, etc.

See attached image for reference.

If you do need anything going forward, just let me know. :)

EMERGENCY!!!!

I created my site on rickromanoconsulting.com and then once I had it how I wanted it I hit the move function and sent it to doubleyourclosingsnow.com

But whenver I tried to log in it just kept doing the spinning circle and would never log in. So, now I've tried to move it back and it doesn't appear to be going back. I spent a month making this site.

How do I get it back so I don't lose all my hard work?

Hey Carson I know and understand your busy so no need to get back at me right away. However, I'm struggling here. Feeling like a fish out of water and like maybe I took on something that's way too far out of my element. I'm not a quitter but need some help here. I am COMPLETELY a newbie with computers, smart technology and all its lingo and navigation. Kyle makes it seem so effortlessly and easy. However for me it literally takes me 10 hours or more to do what honestly takes him probably 20 minutes tops. And that's with research. It took me just short of 10 hours yesterday just to figure out how to get a link and attach it to my post. Only to wake up this morning and have someone say I did it wrong. ARRRRGGGGHHH!!!! Yes I'm a bit frustrated to say the least. Sometimes it's like 2 steps forward and 1.5 back. I need to be able to do this. To get this. I want to support my family. After my accident left me a bit disabled and unable to work (labor), I have no income to which to boast. Please help me here. What am I doing wrong or can do to really make my site take off?
Just keep plugging away?
Doing the steps? Even if I'm doing them slowly and or wrong for that matter?
Your expertise is most welcomed.
Thank you for your time and energy. Have a blessed day.

A while ago I had an account with wealthy affiliate, and I moved my hosting to you guys for my website. wanderlustforever is my domain. My website still shows that hosting is listed with you guys and locked from transfer, but my account that I had is no longer active. It must have been deleted or something. How do I go about getting access to my hosting so that I can transfer it to another hosting site? Thank you.

Hi There Amber, thanks for your patience over the weekend while I got to your message. Your domain wanderlustforever.com expired long ago, so it's available to be registered at any time. You can register it here at WA right within your account:

If you wish to have managed WordPress hosting then you'll want to upgrade to Premium so that you can host the domain and website here at WA :)

I suggest creating a hosting support ticket here:

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

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

Hi Carson, Not sure if you saw my last message, but my sites won't allow me to add a backup plugin as they think I'm not Premium again. I already had one on my Places To Visit In Norfolk, so I've got the files for this.But the other two, I cant get the files. My Premium extension runs out today and I still can't get the files for my other two sites. Can you guys package these up and email them to me? Happy to do it myself if you can extend again for a few days and allow me to add plugins to these two sites.
Thanks Carson,

Well done to you, Kyle and all your staff for building such a platform. I think this is a situation for me where "When the student is ready the teacher will appear"

Hi Jeanne - great to hear from you and you're welcome :) Working 55 hours a week is certainly a lot of time. I think that you will really love how the Wealthy Affiliate platform takes the technology out of building an online business.

Many of your successful fellow members came from zero technical or marketing background - you can do this! Let me know if I can help out at all.

Hi Carson,
Thanks for the encouragement.
A little about me. I am 47 and have been in the tech industry for 20+ years. I have worked for startups, large enterprises ( EDS and HP) and now work for a large so cal healthcare system( Scripps Health) as an enterprise architect.
I am well educated in the tech but know nothing about marketing.
I make a good living but want to increase my income sources beyond my primary job.

I have looked at affiliate marketing but am skeptical because of all the get rich quick videos.

Anything you can tell me about the realistic expectations for effort verse income would be appreciated. I now have more time in my life as my kids are getting older, college and high school.

I am looking long term into retirement and also considering a consulting career (technical) so I can work my own hours and enjoy some free time with my wife.

I like what I have seen so far from your program.
I expect to learn a lot from it.
Thank you

Everybody earns money at a different rate, so it really depends on the person. We have actually created a discussion on this that will put things into perspective for you here: Have a read of that, I know it will give you a lot of insight into this exact topic. ;)

The first month is typically your foundation building stage. In order to build a website that earns you consistent revenue, you need this foundation. After this, you are going to start seeing traffic and as you build this out, there are many different ways in which you can generate revenue.

Personally it took me into my 3rd month of busting my butt to make my first dollar online, by month 6 though I was making consistent income and by the year mark, I was almost full time.

But guess what would have happened if I quit during those first two "trying" months. I would not be where I am at today. Just wanted to put things into perspective for you.

I am in this journey with you Shawn, so is the community here at WA. If you want to jump in, work hard, take action, and persist. Amazing things can and will happen!

Hi, Carson--As I have already written to Kyle, I was in the U.S. Navy back 1970-72, and operated aboard USS Trigger SS-564 in the Straits of Georgia and Juan de Fuca, testing torpedo guidance systems for several months, 1970-71. We had an entry in the Nanaimo to Vancouver Bathtub Race, and spent three days' liberty in both Vancouver and Victoria (three duty sections, so one day of duty and two days of liberty). I qualified in Submarines in five months and one week, rather than nine months, because I got very interested in learning about the compartments and systems present in the submarine, how it all worked, where all the controls and valves were, etc. Before the navy duty, I earned my Eagle Scout rank and did well enough to graduate college then attended medical school at Colo. U. Med Sch. in Denver, yet after about one year and one week it became obvious I did not want to become a licensed drug dealer nor help people translate (die) to their next plane of conscious experience. I then went back to school some time later and got a chemical engineering degree, after which I went to work managing the classification, packaging, and shipping of hazardous wastes and materials. After a 5-month stint on Johnston Island (800 miles west of Hawaii), I moved to Florida and later assisted in cleaning up after Hurricane Andrew. I then moved to Arizona and did more rock climbing then pursued canoeing and kayaking on the Verde River and other rivers in the area.
My offspring are in their mid-40's, son older than daughter; both live back east and are involved in their careers there, and I last saw and spoke with them back in the late 1990's in Washington, DC, near where they were both living at the time. My son has a daughter; and by daughter, two sons. What fun!
I look forward to having more contact with you and Kyle, as I am also public-service oriented, helping clear trash and obstructions from the Verde River after floods and prior to public river events, such as the local Birding Festival in late April each year. I thank you and Kyle both for your efforts at making it easier for relative novices like me to find a wide path to success in the internet marketing business.

Hi Carson,

Thank you for your message and information on your background with Kyle. It's good you have a business relationship which has survived so well, is very successful, and has every reason to continue to do so.

I too am fascinated by technology and at 71 years old next Wed, I simply cannot retire with so many new things to learn! I am very busy at present, my main business,being the installation of LED lighting in schools and public buildings and now being the time when schools are closed for the summer, I can carry out as much work as possible.

Once this month is over, I shall be able to spend more time on WA which I am hoping will eventually take over from the LED business.
At my age, the thought of making money without needing to visit clients is very attractive! My mind is the same as it was when I was 25, in my opinion, and I hope people who know me agree! But, my physical ability is not the same, and although I do not work physically on sites, I still need to visit them to survey the work needed etc. and doing a job which requires less physical effort seems to be the answer.

I have been looking at option trading and the first hurdle seems to be sorting the genuine out from the scammers! As with any business online, if the potential income is high, it attracts more than its fair share of scammers. However, if I can offer an investment advisory service online as an affiliate, and receive commission from brokers, as well as a commission from the subscription fees, it would be an ideal online business. I haven't fully investigated it yet but from what I have found out, it must be a very lucrative niche market. I am hoping my training with WA will help me towards making this and other ideas I have for online income a reality.

I spend many hours online in general, and I find the hardest part about it is staying focussed on what you are looking for! There are so many distractions which want to divert your attention! I have to be very disciplined not to be distracted but this is obviously a part of how successful internet marketing can be.

Thanks again for your mail, I am looking forward to our association.

Best regards,

Rob001

You're most welcome Joe! I am glad you asked about choosing more than one niche in the early stages of your business. I'm here to help :)

Focus on just ONE website and create success with that before diversifying and creating multiple niche websites.

It only takes ONE website in one niche to be very successful online. I usually find that folks that try to do too much at once (focus on several niche websites) end up in a state of mediocrity because it can be overwhelming and you don't really ever become the expert in just one niche.

It is the experts (specialists) that create long term, successful businesses in any niche.

Thanks Carson. Although I signed up 3 days ago, I planned to start the process today. It would be great if you guys offered the Premium deal After someone has there feet all of the way in the water. Just an idea! I so look forward to starting and getting some sites built. As with anyone, you don't know until you dive in, right? Best, Kathryn

Hello! I thank you for this opportunity right now, I am having some problems with my laptop so I can't get started. It was working fine yesterday but this morning I am having trouble the volume so I have to make updates to it and hopefully it will and I can get to work. Being a homeless veteran without any support is no joke so sir by me joining your WA would help me come up out of this bad situation and become an success story for WA and others better
veterans.

Hi Carson,

I just received notification that a referral of mine had upgraded to a monthly Premium membership, which earns the standard $8 commission for the $19 special first month.

Normally these commissions are credited instantly, but this $8 commission is in the "Pending" section reserved for yearly commissions.

Has the payment structure changed this month?

Hi All

I received this message :

We notice you haven't updated your password recently. Now is a great time to update it! Please use the Forgot my password link above to request a password update email.

How to retrieve back my WA account if the login email address no more available?

Carson, I need help. I was going at this from day 1 putting in 10 to 12 hours into this program and premium member. Have a domain and .com. However, my site since owning my .com has been nothing but a kick in the ass to say the least. The admin password wasn't being recognized. It wont allow me to attach an email address as part of building this site. It's just so frustrating. I've seemed help from Kylevand the community to no avail. How can I move forward and finish the task in front of me if it wont allow me to do so? How can I move forward with this and start generating real $ if I cant proceed because of this problem? I've only had money go out at this point and now I cant get this resolved so I too can generate money. Please advise. Thank you kindly. Joe

Hi Joe,

I can certainly step in here - I want to just make sure that I'm understanding the hurdle that you're facing at the moment with not being able to log into your website. Are you still stuck with that?

I am able to log into your website through your account by clicking on "Websites" from the main menu, then choosing the "login" button next to your website.

Let me know if you're able to get into the site?

Hi Carson
I am a starter member here at wealthy affiliate. I have a question with the link that we put into our website. There is an add link button on the page but every time I click that button there is no url coming up even if I have to click the dropdown button on the side so I have to manually type my website url. How do I fix this?

Note: Please tell Kyle I’ve sent a message through email and your answers will really help me through in upgrading my membership through premium. Thanks.

Hi Czes, great to hear from you. I'm wondering if you found the answer to your question about linking on your website? Congrats on upgrading to Premium too - You've literally got everything you need to build a wildly successful online business using the WA Premium Platform :)

Hi, Carson I'm David Henson and I am exited about what I have learned. about WA so far. But honestly one driving force for me joining was the 7 day free trial because I have been victimized by on line opportunities before so I was hoping that I could learn all I need to in that time, prior to spending any money but here in lyes my only issue, you see I am a private investigator so I work all of the time and when I do get home I still have reports to write and videos to upload so time is a precious commodity to me and that trial is rapidly coming to an end. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you

Hi there! Sorry to bother you. I just want to ask why my site comment earning is not yet transferred to my paypal account. I cashed out $11.50 on June 4, $87 on June 30 and $41 on July 23 for a total of $139.50. I still have another $4 which I wasn't able to cash out because the minimum is $20. Anyway, I asked Kyle about this and he told me to message you instead. Sorry again, I just want to know what happened. Thanks!

Hi Maureen,

If you are using SiteComments and are generating cash credits, you need to exchange the credits to your affiliate account by using the "Exchange for Cash" option on the WA Credit page here:

I recently had to unsubscribe just because of how busy August / September is going to be for me because of college/job fairs etc. I plan on subscribing again in October.

However, I didn't want to get charged $50 for the month of August because I unsubscribed just before I should have gotten billed.

Is there any way you can have me unsubscribed from my membership now so I don't get charged $50? Thank you!

Hi,
Carson,

1) My first "Keyword" - Vitaby > "Vitaby hotels" - then go to
be of "WEDDING VENUES IN VICTORIA BC". Then go to
make this PHRASE. So on my sitecontent, I write this article,
finished and published before you deleted this article.

And someone (I don't know who) said : "change title". So I did
that and changed to be "Traditional and Customs in Wedding".
And I published with sitecontent.. I don't know if I'm right or
wrong. Please teach me ?

2) About my website with WP, I see my article of title was changed but old one still in there. I'm sorry.

Hi Carson, thanks for the greeting. I apologize that I've not been able to take advantage of the free trial. I thought I'd be able to do a little something in between trying to get home back together after a lightning strike/fire @ home (thank goodness everyone's ok) but am trying to get things going. Again, thanks for the welcome.

I am glad everyone's ok, it is always best to push forward and look forward. Work at your own pace Lisa, and as you dig back into the training, let me know if you need a hand with anything at all. :)

Do know that this is not a "trial" as your Starter membership does not end. Your Premium communication is for the first 7 days, but beyond that you will still have access to the community, your websites, and training.

Upgrade at your own pace and what works best for your situation. I know you are going to love the training and community here at WA and of course, feel free to ask for help if you ever need anything.

I will extend your first month discount offer and you will be able to get it any time after this along with the bonuses. I know you are going to love Premium and I really look forward to working with you. :)

Hi Carson,

I could use the help of a coach to bounce an idea off of when it comes to the name of my site MobileCoffeeNomad. I was going through Jaaxy and found very little related to the combination of words. So I looked up Digital Nomad and found a healthy number related to the subject and same result with coffee but mostly with coffeeshops. I want to work this niche because I believe I am on to something that has incredible potential. I am not sure if I should change my site name and if so can you and the community help me shift some ideas around?

Also because I want to go all-in I was wondering if petitioning a designer to work up a logo for my site, would that be too much at the very beginning?

Hey Kyle,

Iam seriously gone with my business.

I lost 6 months worth of pictures, all my pictures for my business.

I have a brand new business website. I have been working on it for the last 4 months very hard.

I was told by the community, WA backs up our sites daily. I have asked for a recent backup.

Let me show you my business:

https://affiliatetrainingnow.com

This is what support wants to back up, without knowing the very huge difference in websites

A different business: https://affiliatetrainingnow.siterubix.com/

I have pictures of my site and the site that support wants to back up.

Support is asking me if I want my very very old site backed up?

Can you see anything weird here, why would I want my old site backed up?
Reply
michaelvgATN Premium
Carson. Wealthy Affiliate doesn’t give you enough data to back up a site with a plugin. I have been trying to get the latest of my site backed up. Not something that is old. I haven’t been asked once what date I want it backed up from.

If I can’t back my site up, and can’t get the support whereas I get the back up I want, then what am I to do?

Hi Carson, I really need help. Support are handing my issue to a senior. I only need the latest server back up to back my site up. I have lost all my WordPress images.

My site is live with no WordPress images, there’s only some pictures from months ago.

I just found out you back up the sites everyday.

Can you please tell me how I can get the latest back up date. I’m presuming my last post on Site Content will have that date?

Hello Carson,

I’ve run into a technical problem that I can’t seem to find an answer to in the training or in the community so far.

I have my website domain email forwarded to my iCloud account, and I need to compose and email and SEND it from the website domain email address - not my iCloud address.

I can’t find anything in the training referring specifically to iCloud although gmail is covered and apple mail. I tried following the gmail instructions within my iCloud account since I figured that it would probably be about the same, but no luck.

I couldn’t figure out how to create a non-iCloud alias, and I was really hoping that you could help me with this or steer me in the right direction. Please help...this is driving me absolutely bonkers!

Cheers,
Allison

Hi Allison,

iCloud email will not allow you to send from a domain other than http://iCloud.com, that's a stipulation of using iCloud for email. I would suggest using Gmail, it's fantastic for managing all of your domain email addresses from one location. Furthermore, GSuite is even better as you can use SMTP vs Forwarding which is not the best solution for delivery and or spam filtering etc.

We can setup your domain to work with GSuite by updating the MX records if you choose to go that route - this is my suggestion.

Thanks for the connection, it is so hard for me to believe anything people say to me. I just got scammed last week working for a company from home after work mailing stuff for them as soon as I was to get paid the company was a fake. I am trying to make money to get my website up to sell the tee shirts I just got my TM on the 16th of this month just hard for me to get started.

The live webinars are timed for 2am my local time in South Africa! I know that they can be viewed afterwards but I'd like to participate in the live webinars. Many others, like in Europe/UK etc are in my time zone. Can't we also get live webinars we can participate in?

Hi Mike - a great suggestion and we do have plans to offer a variety of live events like the ones that are offered by Jay (Magistudios) and some of the individuals who may be taking part in offering the training are in other times zones. It will all be determined on where the hosts are and what times suit them the best.

Hello Carson....please help me. I have a question about how Premium is billed and I couldn't locate the answer on the site. Is Premium billed monthly for a whole year at $29.92, or does the whole year of $300plus come out all at once from my payment method? I already asked the community but didn't get an answer yet.

Carson Premium
The membership that you are on is a Starter membership, which is completely free. There is one upgrade that you can make here and it is the Premium membership, which is the key to the community. Premium is $19 the first month, then it is $49 per month after the first month.

This includes absolutely everything you need to create and grow a business online from the training, weekly live classes, he support, the tools, the websites/hosting, the mentoring, network, exclusive access to all updates...you name it.

We also have a 6 month option for $234 which works out to be $39 per month when paid in full, and a yearly option of $359 which is a big discount and that works out to be $29 per month when paid in full. You can choose either or.

Hope this helps you out Teresa and if you have any further questions let me know.

Hi, when i try to upload a photo review on a woo commerce product review i get a wp-comments-post.php error

i tried different themes and deleted used plugins .Still not working. Even tried different photo review plugins, Nothing works.

I read online and they're saying its a hosting problem. Do you think the hosting WA is using doesn't support the photo review?

This is the error im getting below. This is a brand new site im working on and have another site that gets the same error when trying to upload a photo review.

Please i really appreciate it if something can be done to fix this as photo reviews are very important to increase sales on my products.

Thank you

Hi Carson,

Thanks for sharing your information about you. You are a very interesting person.

I like to swim and shoot hoops in the pool., I have solved the Rubik's Cube many times. I am good in math. I like surfing on how to make money online. I only made money playing games online. Not a lot of money, but mostly for entertainment purposes.

It is nice to meet you Carson.

Good to meet you Carson! Thanks for the background on yourself!
I'm happy to be here at WA but I'm having trouble setting up my website.......choosing Theme.......which is where I am right now!
Nothing seems to fit so I may change my Niche!
Have a great day.
Sincerely,
Paul

Carson Premium
You're most welcome Paul! I am glad that you have chosen a niche. You should definitely not reconsider your niche only because you find themes visually unappealing.

Choose a theme that is simple, ideally with a white background and black text (as this is the most readable).

I tend to avoid themes with too many bells and whistles as the focus of your website will be your content and your content will make your website look visually appealing to your audience.

So choose something simple, yet elegant and if you ever need to change down the road, you can easily do so within Appearance => Themes.

There are over 3,000 to choose from there and you will also be able to upload your own from there.

We have created some training on how to do this that you should check out: If you do need anything going forward, just let me know. ;)

Thank you for the response. I'm a lover of sport, music and dance and have a passion to help others too. The challenge is and I guess is for most people, Money! I've been a radio presenter for many years and resigned to start up a digital video business which collapsed after 2 years when funds ran out. I now create videos for businesses and finding clients is difficult. Owners are stuck in traditional advertising methods. Out of sheer desperation, I've landed here. I am looking forward to adding value to others as well to catapult my efforts to earning abundantly. Thanks to you, Kyle and Mr. Lim.

I can appreciate that Krishnan, I have had my fair share of jobs that just weren't doing it for me over the years. I can tell you there is light at the end of the tunnel.

We all want to be fulfilled in what we do, I can see that this is what you are after. The Internet truly presents this opportunity, regardless of the niche you want to work within.

Absolutely everything you need is here at WA, including the help. As you work through the Get Started Here training you are going to see your business coming together. If there is ever a point where you feel stuck or just want to say hi, simply drop me a Reply here and I will give you a hand.
