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!

Hello Carson, I am a newbie here. We have similar backgrounds i.e. in IT - I got my first computer - an Apple II E in 1986..What a long way technology has come. I also have a deep love of education and knowledge and look forward to working with you.

Well hi, I am 73 year old grandma, had my own business have one grandson, one daughter-in-law, I work hard and I am goal oriented.
I had hooked up with another on line and that is nothing like this,
I used to do customer service and this is the best support that I have ever seen. My goal is to make money to provide something for my grandson and what he wants to do. I have read a lot of emails and it seems that each person has a special thing they are doing with you and not just every one is lumped they seem to have set up the online with what interest them etc. the other company did not do this, as I got into it, they wanted me to sign papers take out a loan to start there's. It was so hard to set it up and the support was email us and 24 to 48 hrs they would get back,
Sunday I will be starting the lesson as my grandson is here and is going home Saturday. I can concentrate.

Hey Carson, As I am going throught the training I ran into an issue where I got my all in one SEO installed, and under general settings I added my home title, home description, and home keywords and then clicked updated options. Now when I go to visit my site and right click on the dashboard to view the source code I don't see tht changes that were made as shown by kyle in the training video. Please let me know if there might be somehting I possibly did wrong. Thank you Carson

Hi Carson,
Can you recommend me where online I find reliable writers to write some blog post for art industry for me. And how much do I need to pay? And think the blog post should be SEO optimized. Correct? What kind of information I need to give the writer for SEO optimization?

Hey Carson...I attenpted to leave Kyle a message about an issue in traning, but the WA Platform would not allow me to? I'm not sure what's going on there. Maybe you can help me.

I'm trying to progress through the OEC program but have ran into a roadblock. On Level 2/Lesson 4, I am unable to "Offer Feedback on at LEAST TWO Other Websites" because none are available...I have been waiting for two days to complete this lesson.

I do not want to skip this step. Is there a way for you to make a website available for me to review and offny help you can provid much appreciated...Kerry

Hi Carson,
I’m enjoying the training so far but I have a burning question. Suppose someone comes to my site and buys something and they get redirected to Amazon for the purchase. Well, now they know exactly where to buy that item they like and they know where to get it- Amazon! So I made the initial sale but next time what’s to stop them from bypassing my sit. Aren’t they more likely just to log into their Amazon account > orders > buy again because it’s more convenient now on subsequent orders to buy direct? How do you keep that from happening?

What if you put a dream team together of say groups of Ambassadors. For the sole purpose of going to a WA members site and reviewing their whole content and assisting them with reworking it to sell.

For instance, I have a blog on Maine travel. Have a handful of a post. What if the dream team would come in and take my site on to rework and make more productive. In a constructive way.
Like I might do a review on a Maine Map. They would review the whole post and say change this add more affiliate links…

Don't get me wrong I am not criticizing the way you are running this site. I already see the benefits. Everyone is busy doing their own thing. The reviews and comments are great but usually just one line sentence. Or in some cases a thumbs up...

I am new to the site. Maybe I just need to reach out more than I have and it is a service you are already offering.

Keep up the great work…
Best Regard,
Chris

I would say with the amount of new members joining the site and the time the ambassadors already pour into helping us newbies, that would just suck all of their time right up. Good idea though!
Reply
CheriJ1 Premium
Please also understand that Ambassadors are simply those members who are most active on the WA platform, which means some of them do not have any particular expertise that can really assist you. Some do, others do not. If you were referred to WA by another member, I would suggest you reach out to that member for assistance first if you are seeking some detailed feedback. Hopefully they will be helpful. Beyond that, as with any gathering place of people (physical or virtual), you will want to take time to build up your own network of contacts. As you do, you'll be able to evaluate those who really know their stuff to whom you can then reach out to for assistance as needed. You are very new, though, and I suggest, first and foremost, that you go through the training thoroughly. Many of your questions will be answered there. I would also refer you to click on the Live Events section to the left of your dashboard and seek out Jay's "Hot Seat" webinar replays where he literally reviews WA members' websites and make suggestions for improvements. There's a wealth of information to be gained there. Good luck!

Thank you for your message. I do hope it was genuine. I see a lot of copy and paste messages on here, and it makes e disheartened immediately.
I understand the need to do things quickly, especially in a growing community. But too many copy-paste answers begin to make any new person feel wary, and feel not genuinely wanted around. After all, it is like going to a party and everyone you meet says "hi, you look good tonight. How about that weather?" but no one actually cares and no one wants to get to know you as a person. That's an even bigger part about growing business- making your visitors feel as if you care what they think and how they feel. You need rapport with them. Without that, trust is lost along with interest!
Thanks!

i am getting freshly acquainted with internet marketing, definitely not easy - but I appreciate a friendly group like WA and people like you and Kyle, who stay within the depersonalization of the new age, quite humane and service oriented - even with an eye on the money.
so, thanks for helping to open minds and also hearts, in the process (:
it is a a learning opportunity for the technical aspects of marketing and also offers an understanding on how to keep the personal and human connections and interactions alive, as well. (:

Hi Carson, good day to you!

I contacted you to let you know of a possible bug in our Site Comments. I noticed that every time we submit a comment, the system replies with a single message that goes like this:

"We ran into an issue:
Oh no, it looks like this request has already been completed, please refresh your browser and try again."

The same message keeps popping up even after refreshing the page and replying to a new and fresh comment request.

Please look into this. Thanks, more power to you, and God bless!

Hey Carson. Thanks for this opportunity I am learning quite a lot here. My challenge is the upgrade deadline, i recently just learnt about WA and the upgrade to premium deadline date is rather too soon. I can only be able to afford the $19 at the end of this month and the $49 is rather too steep for I am still a student in Sawziland and the exchange rates are rather too hefty. If possible please kindly extend the discounted amount until 30 July as i shall be ready by then to upgrade. I am really interested in learning how to make money online and actually making money online as i am bradwinner at home and my family depends on any income i can make. I ask that you offer me solutions on this part for i believe in 2 days time my time here will be over. Please Help!

Hi Melusi, we can extend the $19 first month discount for you, but it's very important that you consider upgrading so that you can access level 2 training and get your website on a domain of its own. I look forward to working with you and will be here to help :)

Hi Carson,

I am in need of help, Carson. I am having a hard time trying to reach Kyle. Yesterday and today, I posted a few messages on Kyle's profile page. And I have been noticing that Kyle has been responding to others on his profile page, but he has not responded to my messages that I posted on his profile page yesterday and today.

So, I need your help with this, Carson. I am new here at WA as I have only been here at WA for a month now. So, I am confused about what is going on and why I haven't been able to communicate with Kyle recently.

Please let me know because I am feeling lost right now.

Thank You Carson for reaching out to me. Also Thank You for the very warm welcome. I am very interested in going forward with this website/online business. But I am not that long out of Hospital after suffering a Stroke. Also on the 29th July, I will be flying out of Melbourne to Brisbane. I went back a couple of times last year to support my sister. She had Brain 🧠 Surgery for Lymphoma in the Brain 🧠. Followed by very strong Chemo for 6 months. Then on the 3rd August, I fly out to Mount Isa to visit friends and family. Go to the Mount Isa Rodeo. I may not have internet. Could be going to a very small town. Counting every man, women and child. The Total is less than 14 humans. Heaven, but no internet.
But I really need to know, is there a time period that I have to upgrade before?
What is the Total Amount per month that I will need to pay to stay in this company?
Is there any other expenses that I will need to take into account?
Also how do I get paid, after I have started to make money?
How often? Is there a certain date of the month, that people get paid?
So far everything seems to be upfront and open. But I don’t need any surprises. I don’t want to start, then not be able to stay in long term.
Also am I able to change the email address that I receive emails from?
I have a couple of ideas for my website. Is there any extra to set these up? Do I need to pay for a year in advance?
Thank You for reading this message.
Hope to hear back from you.
Must go and finish my Danish Beadwork for a friend.

Hey Carson, thank you for the warm welcome, appreciate all the valued information received within the very first moments of getting started with WA. Very excited to be a part of this community and can't wait to explore everything and meet awesome people. The reason I'm interested in affiliate marketing is to be able to free myself up from the 9 to 5 slavery, 'be my own boss'', have no geographical attachment and mostly, help businesses grow by supporting them on the marketing side. Looking forward to the training, I will ensure to ask questions as needed and take action to make this journey a success. Many thanks again !

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.

Hey Carson ,
I appreciate what you have done here and taught me so much ,but yet so little. I decided that the niche I have I like so I went a little overboard and made like three domains. Now as far as getting traffic to them I was planning on using them as a sort of lilly pad for my potential traffic so it’s all within my niche ,but than i am able to really almost put a microscope on my other sites. However here is the rub I want an looking online where you can post articles written by industry leaders, than I would comment and than embed one of my sites. I want to this to draw in other bloggers and stuff like that but i don’t know if i Am helping or hurting
Thanks for your time

Hi Carson, It is great to be here. I am sorry I am late to answer your mail. I am glad that I have someone to go to if I have computer problems. Seriously! It is good to be able to have people around you with the same mind set and goals. I know I will stumble, knowing that I can call on people to help, takes a lot of pressure off your shoulders. Really glad for the introduction. There is a lot for me to do in the meantime and any future contacts I will get back to you asap. I still have not enough time in the day to do all things. Hopefully I will decide to upgrade before the due date. Kind regards Kam.

You most definitely can learn online business here at Wealthy Affiliate, with no experience required. That is the great part about learning this business and what you learn here. You are going to be tasked to build out your actual business as you move through the training, there are specific tasks after every lesson that will get you creating an actual business!

Unlike a conventional education, you don't have to wait 4 years before you can practice and earn money from what you learn, you will be building out your successful business right from the first day. Hope this clarifies for you Hetal :)

have you ever had problems with AdSense saying: Earnings at risk - One or more of your sites does not have an ads.txt file. Fix this now to avoid severe impact to your revenue.

I have installed ads.txt plugin, pasted the code but still gives me that warning. Also I tried putting in my website domain name with ads.txt behind it, it will give me : Page can not be found message.

Update: I sent this message by frustration, But now it is solved.

It is almost 48 hours since I put a request regarding the configuration update of my website, but unfortunately still no feedback, which is really frustrating from my side. Full day long I am waiting for their reply, which actually hampers my website building.

Every time I knocked them (once or twice a day) they replied their senior admin will be looking into this issue and provide an update asap.

I thought maybe you are one of the senior admins and you can solve the problem.

If you help me out I shall be highly obliged.

Still more, I really need your help for me to upgrade to premium. I told you my problem that I don't have money ready at the moment and, I have never done an online payment before. Where I am here, Malawi is a poor country. I just opened up Genius Print but unfortunately, it has not started making money yet.
Is there anyone who can help me pay for my premium so i can pay back when i start making money with WA?
Thanks

I know you are going to love your experience here at WA Gray :)

We have kept our platform the most cost efficient in the industry and at less than $1 per day, sometimes it takes small sacrifices to be able to build a business. But I want you to do what makes the most sense to you and your situation.

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 and is the foundation that is going to lead you to success down the road.

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

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 Rushane, you will get the hang of this and things that you are overwhelmed with by now, will become second nature.

Hi Carson

I have had my write privileges revoked.

I don't care that I can't talk in Live Chat, comment on blogs, answer questions, send private messages etc. However I am absolutely astounded that I cannot contact Site Support.

I have an urgent issue regarding one of my domains that I need to speak to Site Support about but I can't.

I totally understand being restricted in all the ways I mention above, but not being able to contact Site Support - surely I shouldn't be stopped from that? It is an essential part of any hosting package.

To reiterate I don't want my write privileges reset, I just want to be able to contact Site Support.

Hey Carson! You said I shouldn't hesitate to ask if I have questions, so here I am. I'm struggling choosing a niche. I'm thinking about doing an e-book review site (I'll choose a genre once I decide to pull the trigger on this niche) with affiliate links from Amazon. I love to read, so that part seems like it will be enjoyable. But as far as making sustainable money from that niche, it seems like I might still be in the business of trading hours for dollars. There might not be enough "evergreen" content in that niche, and I may find myself constantly reading and reviewing new stuff. Plus, people rely on major sites like Amazon and Goodreads for reviews anyway, so I'm going to find myself instantly competing with them.

Thoughts on this?

Also, I'm thinking about doing something in the "billiards" niche as that is also a passion of mine. However, I'm not good with video or on camera; I'm much more comfortable writing long-form posts and articles. Teaching about billiards seems like it should be more visual than I'm comfortable with.

I also have a disability called cerebral palsy, so I've been considering the viability of using that as a starting point for choosing a niche, but I'm unsure how to brainstorm ideas in such a sensitive area.

Thanks!

Hi Carson,

My name is Nicolas from France. I would like to enroll your affiliate program and promote your services among the french speaking community. I had a few questions beforehand in order to comply with copyright rules as well as some general inquiries:
1. Can I re-use your images?
2. Can I re-use your content and translate it to French?
3. As an affiliate, what are my restrictions in term of prospection?
3. Which countries cannot subscribe to your services, if any?
4. Any other particular point I should be aware of before joining your affiliate program?

Thank you in advance for your feedback.
Best,

Dear Carson,

How can I make my website offline while I am developing it?
There are contents that are copy-paste. Not the real intention, I just want to have an idea and develop my own later on. My writing skill is still under development as of the moment.

Is there any unforeseen negative effect?

Please let me know.

All websites are under construction, a website is never done. It is bad practice to put a site under construction, rather you should be considering just publishing your content as you create it. Within a month or so it will really start to take shape and you will have a decent deal of content on your site.

You want Google to find your site as soon as possible, so avoid the idea of under construction. That is definitely not how you want to go about building out your site.

I recommend that you only publish pages/posts as the content is ready to go, the content that you create.

I have just set up my first domain and,website abd when I awoke this morning, I realized that I had chosen the wrong nitche for my first venture. Can I add another domain and website as my first venture without confusing the system pertaining to my training and if so please tell me how.
Also, I was tokd in live chat that I would have to purchase the domain. Does this mean it will come from the amount allotted to me with my peemiun membership or do I pay for it?

You can definitely switch to a new niche if you are not "feeling" your very first niche, or you are more interested in another one.

What you want to do is create a brand new website targeting your new niche. This is not an issue at all, in fact it is better to switch to a new niche in the early stages of your business before you get too far ahead of yourself within a niche that you don't thoroughly enjoy.

If you want a domain of your own, you can purchase it through SiteDomains here at WA. Domains are things that you actually OWN just like real estate and if you want your own .com domain, you will need to purchase it. By all means get rolling on the free .siterubix.com websites though Anthony, you can always transfer over to your own domain name down the road using the Move feature included within the Premium membership.

When you are ready to purchase a domain, you can do so through the following page:

Let me know if you need any further help.

Hi Carson!
My name is Johane Gaonne, born from a poor family, my father and mother were small farmers but now they are no longer doing it because of their old age and health. I started to learn something about computer in 2004 and had my first laptop in 2014 and still learning technology and how to use computer, Now I want to learn more about making money online using technology even though sometimes I don't understand the terminology. But I trust through this community I will learn a lot because I love reading and learning. To me it is more of personal development than money. Yes I need money BUT I would like to be more informed, educated and empowered in order to have a sound mind and being responsible in managing my life and money.

Hey Johane - thanks for the background info and introduction. If you ever have questions about terminology then please just let me know. You can also ask in the Live Chat now that you are a PREMIUM member and you'll get instant help that way :) All the best as you move forward with the WA Program. I'm here to help if you need anything.

Hey Carson, my trial period is up today. When I go to upgrade, none of the payment options are working. I get a message saying “ my bank is declining the transaction “. I tried PayPal and got the same message. I haven’t dug into all this info on your site enough to jump in for $49, but was going to give it a shot for $19. Looking around for payment help, I’m not seeing any. Any help is appreciated!

Hi Jason, apologies for not getting back over the weekend. It looks like you were able to get the transaction processed an upgrade to Premium. What was the solution? I look forward to working with you here at WA as a Premium member, Congrats!

I am just haveing a go with the new affiliate programs module.
it is all looking good.
i like the various search and selection features - really powerful.
the commission filtering is struggling to select offers as well.
i click on the join this program button and get sent to a sign up page.
i have logged into my cb account and tried again, but still get taken to the signup page, with no way of logging in.
what am i doing wrong?
same result with the get links at clickbank button.

Hello Carson, may I know how do I continue with the training to build my website of my niche without getting to the premium ? Because it requires me to pay before i can get going with the training?

Carson, are you one of the owners here. I can't remember who they were. If so, I just wanted to say that due to a personal hardship I'm not going to be able to continue here. I was hoping that things would settle down but they are not going to. I started doing some things right after I joined premium but that didn't last long before I was forced to quit. If it is possible to get a refund of my premium fee I would greatly appreciate it. If not, thank you anyway but I won't be utilizing my premium membership.
Thank you,

I cancelled my membership almost 2 weeks ago and i was still billed yesterday! I just dont have time for this right now. I have only had the membership a month and barely used it at all!! I have three children and cannot afford to pay the $49 right now when i DID successfully cancel my membership weeks ago! I dont know what happened but something went wrong on your end because I CANCELLED the membership!! I seen the bill on my bank statement today, I was just billed yesterday so i came back to see what was going on today and i was STILL a member, but i DID cancel it weeks ago! So Ive cancelled it again and certainly hope this doesnt happen again!! Ive also contacted Kyle and will continue to reach out to the both of you until i receive my refund. I do plan on coming back in the future when i have the time but i just do not have the time now but if i dont get my refund I will lose all r respect for wealthy affiliate and never return!

Hello Carson

I was wondering can I register another username to Wealthy affiliate that I pay yearly but build webpages for clients using the username separately to my main account.? Of course I would recommend as a affiliate to the client they hold the account as someone that wanted to build their own site and participate in here but for clients that want the job done ✅ is that possible please ?

Thank you 😊

Hi Erica,

You can create websites for clients under your main account and simply provide the users with access to their websites directly without even mentioning Wealthy Affiliate. You have the username and password available to you for logging into the website back-office from within the website details page here at WA. Many folks build websites for others and provide them access to the websites without allowing them to access WA. If your clients want to take over their website and learn from WA, then we can always transfer the website over to them from your account.

Hi Andrew,

Hope that you get this message as you caught me over the weekend. You can certainly buy a domain name to preserve it and then set up the site at any time in the future when you're ready to go Premium. You'll need Premium for the hosting and to get the domain up on our network. Let me know if you have any questions about this!

Hi Carson,
I haven't been with WA for long and people keep saying I need to start the training and choose a niche etc. I have actually been affiliate markketing for several years and already have my niche. I've earned a small but steady income from this but this has really slowed down in the last few weeks. I believe it's mainly to do with the way Google is indexing the pages. I need to make the whole site mobile friendly and have lots of questions. Is there anything in the training about this? I started my site in 2006 and I've lost count of the number of pages! It's over 500. It's going to be a huge job to go through it all. I've also got some issues with SSL etc.
Reply
Hi Carson and thank you for the warm welcome.

I feel a bit like a fish out of water here but I'm serious about learning the skills and getting this done. It's such a contrasting world from where I've been this past decade. I mean I was actually, literary, living in the "African bush" with very poor internet connectivity hence, I hardly used it and spent my time involved with wildlife and community initiatives and running my own lodge.

After finishing school in 1992 I did two years towards my BA in graphic design but dropped out due to a family crises and got involved in the family business thereafter. I also did some courses on desk top publishing and other general administrative computer software but life took me in a different direction when I moved to Namibia after I got married. So, I'm not completely without skill in the digital world, however its more on the design side of things and it's been a very long time since I've used or updated them.

I recently moved back to South Africa because I desperately need a change in lifestyle and career. I still have my business in Namibia but am currently leasing it out and am looking for something new. I don't want to tie myself down again and wish to work remotely. I look forward in learning everything you have to teach and thank you for making it possible.

Take care

My Wealthy Affiliate account has been out of action for a while, as I couldn't afford to keep it going.

Hi Carson and Kyle,

After burning in past few business offers of affiliate marketing and business of selling on ebay I was very skeptical but because it was free to start with I thought would give it a go with hope there are still good and ethical people in the world who would hold hand and guide us to the success in the big ocean of affiliate marketing and I feel like I am just a tiny fish like a Dory who doesnt know where to start especially with so many messages and so much information. Hence I have started from training lesson no 1 and just adding my network slowly on WA page and saying hi and hello to people. Hopefully this way will lead me to success

Hello, Carson! How are you? I have two questions: the first one is related to the domain name. Well, I have a website and I'm thinking about choosing an official .com domain name, but it's about a brand. And I'm thinking about using this brand name in the domain. It's like a blog and I was thinking to myself and wondering if I'd better use a niche-related keyword in the domain name. What do you think? I'm before two possibilities: 1. using the brand name.2. using the keyword or keyword group in the domain name. I just want to rank faster and obviously bring more traffic. Question no 2.: I'm writing articles for my blog and I know I need to improve my SEO strategies. That's what I'm doing: I'm making a list of tags at the end of each article. Is it a valid procedure. Can I be punished for it? Thank you. Your system rock, dude ;)

Hi Carson,
How are you, and hope you are having a good day?
I have a little issue I hope you can help me look into at your convenience, knowing you are a very busy person.
I made a request to withdraw $22 from the cash credit I had from sitecomment yesterday, using the withdrawal slide bar.
But I noticed that the available credits that I had, that I use to request for comments on my site was also deducted. I.e.
Cash withdrawal of $22 was deducted and I was left with the balance of $1.50.
And I had about 53 available credits ( not cash credit) which 44 credits was also deducted and was left with a balance of 9.
Although on the site comment page, it still shows the cash credit total amount available, I want to believe it is because the money hasn't gone through yet.
My worry is my normal credits that was deducted too. I know this isn't a major issue, but I would love if you can have a look and help me rectify this, as I save up the credits to request for comments on my site.
Thanks in anticipation.

Do have a lovely evening.

Like from yoga to relationships, mindfulness ect and everything in between Or should I just focus on the one product?

Hi Carson,

I just received a commission that was listed as a reoccurring commission for eight dollars. When I go to my stats page, I see the commission and it looks like a new commission but is not counted as one. Nor is it counted as any type of commission and today’s stats. It looks exactly like a new commission I received yesterday. Can you please take a look into this and see why it’s not being recorded correctly?

Hello Carson, Thank you for your response in my email.

Dear Carson:. Hope it's ok to call you by your first name.my name is Gregg Davis. You sent me an email. I'm having to go slower than most through my training. I want to make sure that I can do what I can not only to make money but to help others as I do so. Sometimes I need to watch Kyle's teaching videos twice to make sure am doing things right. I would like to go to premium, but I have to have more confidence in myself. By doing so, I may not be able to take advantage of the discount offered for premium. I have several ideas for niches, but I need to complete my training first. I'm close to the building my website, and I don't want to mess things up by trying to rush though my training. I'm willing to do whatever it takes to be effective and successful. I really don't count money as being successful, I'm more about giving the public choices. If I can accomplish this, I will have money also. But I like to earn it. I look forward to working with you and Kyle and the WAcommunity. High with anticipation. Gregg.

High carson, I love that you and kyle have pics of your families up, It shows your actually human. I have looked around your site and while I am not a very tech saavy person, I have been using a computer for many years now and I can usually find my way around most websites. I have been looking for something like what WA offers for a long time, I'm impressed, most online ads that say they want to help you build a website and they will teach you how to drive traffic to it too are scams, I can't tell you how horrible they are, they are busy as one armed paper hangers with the hives, yep they are workin hard to steal peoples hard earned money from them, so I was pretty skeptical when I ran across WA 's ad. I am so glad that someone with brains and some give a shit for other people instead of just their wallet is doing something to help people like me, I knew I could go to someplace like go daddy and build a website and try to be an affiliate on my own, but I have no idea how to get traffic to me and there is just oh so much that I don't know how to do, I need real help, from real people that know what they are doin. I'm 55 years old and I need something that will actually work, as long as I am willing to put in the time and work, which I am, I will be successful, thank you and Kyle for doing this. Btw I'm going to upgrade on the first

Hi Carson,

I haven't reached out too much but if you have the time, could you help me figure out the quickest way to start making money from where I stand now. I am enjoying the new transition but unfortunately being a single dad, I am in a hard place. I think I am close but I am missing something and really could use the guidance.

Hi Carson
Thank you for including me here at WA community. It's an honor for me to be a part of this huge community here and I am overwhelmed the way people are interacting every minute I think. I am excited to start my journey here though I aint got any knowledge in online business. I just wanna learn how to do it and I know it is not easy but I am hoping to get support from you and Kyle and Grace and everybody here. Thank you for including me here at WA.

Hi Carson, as a co-founder of WA, thank you for reaching out to me, I am landing in the right place at the right time of my life, I am now retired and I am pursuing a dream of my life to be able to do work and to build a business using the internet online. I had been searching for a very long time but kept missing the target, hopefully, I can become useful and be inspiring for others who share this community to help one another to overcome whatever obstacles and issues we may come to face on our journey to find success, and turn our dreams into reality and be proud of what we are doing together for the good of helping others and for educating ourselves at the same time. Looking forward to learning in this community, and be guided by you and Kyle on reaching my goals.

Hello, I really wanted to know if there's a way that I could receive an invoice from you to an email of my choosing before making a payment.
The problem that I am currently facing is that I'm in need of an official receipt from "Wealthy Affiliate". I want to go on a yearly payment scheme, but before I can I need to have a receipt from you with all of my bank details, to make it official.
I really hope this is possible to be done because I don't want to say goodbye to Wealthy Affiliate.

Could you tell me please if there is a website template specifially for health and beauty or is that only available via Premium membership?

I’m requesting a refund of the $13.99 since I lost control of my domain after the transfer, this needs to be more transparent upon moving anyone’s domain to your site. I’m attempting to transfer my domain back to its original host and was told that it was not an issue, but upon attempting to transfer, my domain transfer has been denied. I’m beyond frustrated with this issue. I understand there is a process but I’m feeling held hostage by WA and do not like how this is all being handled. I bought a domain and I own it, now I feel like I’ve lost all control of it.

Please let me know how to move forward.

1st. It’s my website, I should be allowed to make any changes at all to a domain that I own and my website should be mine to do what I want.
2nd after transferring my domain to WA, I felt like I lost control of the back end of my domain. I couldn’t update anything without going through support. While some see this as a great thing, I couldn’t even do something as simple as updating my DNS settings.
Had I known any of this in advance I would have not transferred my owned domain to WA.

BethEverett Premium
First - sorry for the repeated messages ahead, it won't allow me to write more than a few paragraphs to explain my issue.
So, I transferred a domain I owned to WA. I rebuilt my entire site and was just about ready to move onto a campaign to start sharing and marketing it when a bunch of errors started to occur. The site was running very very slowly and timed out frequently.
Then several of my account API’s stopped working for sign-in links. When I spoke to Site Support I was told, WA doesn’t allow this type of plugin on the site and I had to delete and remove.

I have 2 websites and lots of work behind them.... what should I do now?

Hi there Carson,
my apologies in advance for what is going to be a long post. I had originally reached out on Kyle's page but I figured the best approach to finding all the answers I'm seeking is to seek out the top people that know it all and not just one of them.

I had posted on Kyle's page basically a 'plea' as to "What the heck am I doing right now, I feel like a chicken with my head cut off." -Type of post.
Which, with full understanding, hasn't been answered yet(I get that the two of you are extremely busy, it already amazes me how many people the both of you connect to daily).
But if and when he is able to get to it, I would also like your tips and pointers and well, guidance if you have any to offer.

I suppose I am inevitably confused as what type of content I was supposed to be creating with my website. Am I supposed to take this in the direction of a blog posting website? Or like in lesson one, as avant-garde to drop shipping? I don't want to give up on Wealthy Affiliate as I can tell there is a growing and friendly community based around it.

But without being able to upgrade to premium I am stuck after finishing all of lesson one and getting down to the keyword searches and how to optimize that. With just that though (and yes I promise I followed the training all the way through, page for page, plugin for plugin, post for post) and I do not know what I am supposed to do with my website.

I have a niche idea in mind and a lot of hope for it but it would entail a form of drop shipping. I'm just not sure what I am supposed to do with my website from this point on...

I have a niche in mind. And am actually very well versed in the technical field and do web design as one of my side jobs.

What I was interested in taking from these lessons were marketing skills and through the blog posting I had read that originally piqued my interest in the Wealthy Affiliate program and lead me here, well, I expected more 'help'.
Not so much around about answers that continuously tell me to 'follow the training it explains it all.'.

Which, to a point it does. It explains how to set up my website.
Well alright:
website✔
about me page✔
privacy policy✔
niche✔
activating plugins✔
familiarize yourself with the widgets and WordPress back office✔
find keywords✔

But now what? I have my niche, do I blog about it? Is that the direction that all of us are going on Wealthy Affiliate? Am I supposed to sell products? Sell affiliate links?

Am I involved in a pyramid scheme or an actual community that is strived on learning and growing?

I suppose I don't know where I got lost in translation on what this website offered. But pretty words and friendly conversations don't put food on the table, don't pay bills. I was really excited about the opportunity I thought was being presented, but I guess I just never really got what was being presented.

Hello Carson,

Thank you for your email inviting me to introduce myself personally. I am beginning this journey cash-strapped, but I am hoping to become a premium member. However, depending on the time it takes for income returns, I will need to be able to bring in at least enough to pay for my internet and membership costs very soon. I am grateful for any advice you can give me.

Thanks for the warm greeting, I will be sure to ask any question that comes to mind as I move through the training process. I am looking forward to getting into the meat and potatoes of this and make some money. I have been in so many different programs that promise the world but has never panned out I hope this is the silver lining.
However, I do have one question now, in other programs content was always an issue, what makes this program different how do we always keep good fresh interesting content on our sites that will keep the viewer coming back to check for new content?
Reply
Hello,
thanks for Your kind interest, but...
it's not for You but for an other site which I've already lost because I've too much information and go from one site to other. And everybody wants to communicate but I'm not used to do so too fast... Anyway -
...I'm new (here) and old (in a real life - 77 + sclerosis; inspiring, isn't it?!). Do I recommend this (WHAT this?) to others. Definitely not. I can't recommend anything what I don't understand at all. How should I say anything about nothing even if I was Socrates? Yes, I'll try to go through all the advices, counsels, read e-mails (not all - the life is too short) and try to grasp where I really am and what I can do. I'll try `Join this program - Follow Along With Top Traders`. It's another world for me. I understand it sounds not at all good for this site (as I can suspect). But one thing nevertheless: what do You recommend to me? Open, straight and - I hope - favourably.
But for You - another thanks and I'm ready to go a bit deeper and closer to what's going here!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Here's my problem:

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

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

3) On the dashboard of WP, when I click "Pages", it's only the Privacy Policy that shows up as a Page.

Hi Carson.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Cheers,

Carson

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

Hi Carson,

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

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

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

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

Yours,

Hi kyle & Carson,

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



Sincerely
Zulfikar

Dear kyle,

Recently my PayPal Id is not active. Now I want to change my previous PayPal Id. But Channing that option is not available there. I need to implement my new PayPal Id in my WA account for withdrawing WA commission. Please grant me access for changing my PayPal id.

Thank you.

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

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

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

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

http://waystoavoidscamsonline.com

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

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

Keep on publishing!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hi Anthony,

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

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

RE: WALDMANN/DEBS66 COMPLAINTS

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

None of this is good for your business.

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

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

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

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

Watch for me on Monday! I will be back!

Have a Great Weekend!

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

Hi Carson,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Carson Premium
Hi Adam,

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

I hope this gives you some insight and is helpful.

Hi Keith,

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

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

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

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

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

I hope this helps :)

Hi Carson,

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

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

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

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

Later man!

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

I'll answer your questions below:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hello Kyle:

I have to drop you, Carson, and Jay a line about this concern.Last night I tried to submit a ticket to site support and noticed that the content portion of the message will not work in any format offered. classroom will not work either. The newbies and other members have also confirmed this concern.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

All the best,

Robert

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

Hi Carson nice to meet you, my name is Hector and I want to go pemium, but I have a little problem. I have a debit card with $18 dollars and I also have $12 dollars of paypal money. Can I use the $18 dollars of my debit card money and add $1 dollar from paypal money to cover the first month fee with WA. I'm really excited to join this program and I'm going to try my best to be successful. Please get back with me ASAP and tell me if it's possible to pay this way. Thanks and God bless you.

Hello Carson, I want to say hello, so far, I'm impressed by the enthusiasm and support from the WA community members. I have no regret in becoming a premium member by using the one month special discount. Now, I'm considering to become a yearly member. My goal at WA is to make money.

Hey Carson,

How’s it going?

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

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

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

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

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

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

So yeah.

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

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

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

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

Thanks for reading,

Kindly,

Michael V.

Ps

Do you think it will come back strong or?

Dear Carson.
If you see the tab there in "My friends" is a profile of a Laura Moffat.We emailed through here,also exchanged personal emails and Skyped each other.
She,it is in fact probably a he said first of all she was a nurse in Ghana,later by accident on Skype there was the usual "I`m serving in Afghanistan" saying that these people use.
I traced the original IP adress to my gmail and found it originates from Westchester CA.
On scam notification websites,this location belongs to a man who is one of the most prolific dating scammers on the internet.
Take a look at the IP address from this profile and you will see what I mean.
The IP address I got is
2002:a5e:8803:0:0:0:0:0
I think you will see what I mean.
Best regards.
Rhett.

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

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

Hope this helps!

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

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

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