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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hi Carson, 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.

Glad to know you and see that you are helping others.

I am keen to help other members too as a member of the community. I would like support on technical matters on issues like security, back ups and Plug-ins to ensure smooth running of any websites that I create.

Are you the person for seeking help on technical issues?
When things go awry or haywire?

Kindly respond asap. Thanks and success to you.

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,

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.

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!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Have a great week!

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

Hi Davi,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thanks!

Anyway, I really appreciate all the new learning I have gained so far. Thanks to you and Kyle,

Hi Carson I did post this message in live chat but hope you don't mind if I ask you as well My domain is a .info which I purchased several months ago prior to joining Wealthy Affiliate. My blog is already indexed in Google, with an ecommerce store on a subdomain. My question is as I'm considering moving my hosting to Wealthy Affiliate should I buy a .com and start again using articles I've posted? So far I've only created 8 posts, but now everything is set up I plan to create at least 3 posts a week. It's just that having watched one of the training videos I now see that .com .net and .org are the best choice.

Hi Kathy - great to hear from you. A .com is going to rank much better than a .info and you can certainly move your website from the .info that you already own to a WordPress website here at WA. Our SiteSupport team can help you move the site over if you want to do that but it must be a Wordpress website to start.

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

Thank you Carson I've already bought my new dotcom and set everything up here I've even added a subdomain for my ecommerce store, and have just posted my first blog post this afternoon. I decided not to move my old site, but simply start afresh! :):)

Hey Carson,

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

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

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

Thank you for your time and help here,

Daniel

Hey Daniel, your billing was not cancelled but we were not able to retrieve payment from your payment source. You would want to check your CC or bank to determine why. All good that you resubscribed and setup new billing, your account is in good standing :)

Hi Carson,
Love your program already. My brother is a pro member.
My husband invented a tool for the carpenter and welder. I want to learn how to get the tools promoted with your program (and cash in on the affiliate linking in blogs we write. I can dedicate 3hours a day to learn this and more hours on the weekend.
Thank you for your generosity. Brenda

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

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

Hi Carson,

Yesterday it was April 1 and I haven't received my commission from WA though normally I always do. Was it April joke or a technical issue? Maybe it was only me who didn't receive and that's why I'm writing to you. Can you please send it asap. Thank you.

Hi Carson,
I have 2 niche ideas and wanted your thoughts.
1) Cannabis (accessories, oil, info.) I did some work for a Cannabis collection agency for awhile - there are a ton of companies - growers, farmers, labs, etc. - and just going to continue to grow as more states legalize.
2) Budget Meals (How to cook great $10-$20 meals) My boyfriend and I cook every night - he is in the produce business and I have tons of pictures.

Is there anyway to get website setup any faster, like have someone walk me thru it. get setup for me. or pay someone to setup for me, while I finish learning how to run it.

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

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

As a result, I have not been able to go forward with my progress and my trial time is running out. I haven't been able to move on since Friday! Once again, before coming to WA, I purchased a WORDPRESS website and I need to know if I can use it with WA or must I build a new one? May I please have an answer so that I may move on? Thank you.

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

Hope this helps,

Carson

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

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

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

So Here I am.

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

They are all in dot com

- Vodqa (Vodka blog or search engine)

- CardioPros (Some device heart-related)

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

- TrekkingBlog (This should quite clear :-) )

- FlexiDream (Nap industry)

- DigitalCalm (Meditation Space)

- DermoWorld (Cosmetic or similar)

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

- HipsterMedia (It should be something interesting in the HipsterSpace

- FirstBump (Dont know maybe baby- pregnancy space)


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

Good Work and sorry for my english

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

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

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

Hi Tom,

Great to hear from you. Yes you can update your email here at WA from your account settings page here:

You can also update your email within your website at anytime from within the wordPress back end under the General Settings.

In regards to EWWW image optimizer, no need to track anything. You do not need to register with EWWW at all.

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

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

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

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


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


I look forward to hearing from you. Thank You

I'm not afraid of doing the work, I have the time to do all the work needed to succeed but I also know myself and if I don't see money coming in after doing months of work, I'm just going to quit and continue looking again but I do believe here is where i want to be but I need to see some results in a couple of months doing atleast 20 hours a week so which training do I start to see some kind of results no matter how small??? Do i do Boot camp WA or do i those a niche and build a website??

Hi Carson,

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

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

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

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

Any help in this situation would be greatly appreciated

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

All the best,
Ian

Hey Carson,

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

Hi Stephane - Apologies for not seeing your message earlier.

Have you moved forward with naming your website?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Here is training on how to point the domain to our servers from NameCheap. Let me know if you have any questions at all about this, I'll be happy to help out.

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

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

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

How can I stop this from happening again please?

Hi Niall, you would have to give me an example so that I can look into this. We do not insert links into your website, but perhaps you copy and pasted something into some content by accident?

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

I find it tough enough to do sometimes when I focus on it tbh.

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

Can show you th site and direct ya to where it was but this'd be a waste of time at this stage I think, thanks 4 reply but,hope you'd a good weekend and we'll chat again I'm sure,

Hi Niall - it's very strange to me as well. Perhaps if this ever happens again you can send me a screenshot of the page, or better yet the page where this happened so that I can see for myself.

Hi Carson,

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

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

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

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

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

Hi Debby,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

how do i find if my niche( Fitness Solutions) 1) is any good?
2) How do I publish it under (fitness and health)?
3) I am going to buy a theme as my niche may end up being a large topic(if you have any recommendations or places to buy 1? if you say run now!!LOL!!I'm enjoying this but between working 12 hours a day and doing this im afraid I am missing stuff.
I want to master this and start making money in a few months but I want to know im on the right path and I have no help around me. Sorry for the long message
thank you for such a great opportunity

Hi Keith,

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

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

I want to help people that ______________.

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

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

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

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

Hi Keith,

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

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

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

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

there are many reasons you find me here but would take much time to explain very much interested in what your company is offering, my situation at this time makes it difficult to make a financial commitment and the reason behind this is the amount of debt which we are dealing with not a great amount to some but it has slowed down my decision making, really would like what your

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

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

So what's wrong with this? Why I could not access to the Members Area? Why I just paid for premium and it shows my Premium membership is closed immediately?
I cannot understand this situation. Can anyboday fix this issue for me? I just bulit a website on that account, so hard for me to give up. :(

Hi Carson! Thanks so much for the welcoming message.

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

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

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

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

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

Thanks very much for all you do Carson!

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

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

Thank you so much

This is what I wrote:

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

Hi Kimberleigh, is this your "About Me" page? If so then I think it's just fine. You've outlined your story and you're just letting others know what you've been through.

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

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

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

Hi Terry,

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

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

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

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

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

I hope to hear from you soon :)

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

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

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

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

I tried messaging those who completed their profiles but still none are premium, is something fishy with my stats? or is it normal that it takes longer than 3 months f or them to go premium? Thanks Carson!

Carson Premium
Hi David,

11% of the users completing their profiles is certainly cause for questioning the source of the traffic. Generally people will start upgrading to premium within 7 days of the initial join, so there's certainly a disconnect with what the users are looking for and what WA offers. Where are your referrals coming from David?

(i wrote a custom message to his email list about the perks of WA before I sent them to wa, I never mentioned upgrading to premium perks though).

Hi David,

Unfortunately the traffic is not real or are very low quality. You're going to want your money back because paying for traffic is one of the age-old scams out there. Most of it was likely BOTS or fake users - certainly people not at all interested in building an online business and taking action. A refund would be appropriate - never buy traffic from someone. That will never turn into revenue for you regardless what product or service you are promoting.

If you're wanting to build your online biz promoting WA you can certainly be up and running fairly quickly.

We have a dedicated set of training for this in our Affiliate Bootcamp set of courses. Let me know how it goes with the purchased traffic.

Carson thank you so much for your words of wisdom and taking the time today to respond.

I have studied the entire boot camp courses and the online entrepreneur certification courses, If I can't pay for traffic and do things the "lazy way" (my preferred way), then I guess I will have to take the long annoying road of content generation and organic ranking, which I know takes a lot of work to get to high positions in Google etc, but oh well, guess we can't have everything in life, lol.

Thanks man! I OWE YOU ONE!

I have paid my premium membership of $359.00 per year since 2010. WA owes me $233.00 in commissions from the Affiliate Program. I have been trying to get paid this money for the past 4 months. I may be asking for this years membership refunded if I don't hear from you on this matter. This is not the first time I have reached out to, but nobody seems to be home there. Kyle says you handle the payments. Please respond to me. Casey Hill E-mail absoluteflooring@gmail.com.

Thanks @Carson. I have been wondering how I was going to learn how to build a website and develop it from a store front here so I can put it into my future Malls. Wealthy Affiliate will be of great help and I look forward to making me some or allot of friends here.

I'm just starting out after being forced into retirement at the age of 55 yrs old. I'll be working my way thru the 2 free websites offered as a starter member (to get my feet wet) and plan to build up to the 50 others over time.

Loved the training videos (which I'll be coming back to from time to time) and will be of great help in my future endeavors I'll be pursuing.

I'll be writing you again soon.

Have a Great Day!!!

Hi Mark,

Great to hear that you have a plan of attack and that you're going to be working through the training to build that foundation of knowledge that you can apply going forward. I suggest continuing to follow along in the lessons for the first site so that you see how we suggest building it from the ground up. Once you've got the process down you can scale - that said...keep in mind that you only need ONE successful website to generate sizeable income. It's easier to focus on ONE and do great with it than to spread yourself thin on too many.

Either way - I look forward to working with you :)

I also have a problem with my Paypal payment.
Dear Carson, can you please provide an email address to send the payment directly from Paypal so I can upgrade to premium?
I can't pay through the way you provided on the website because Paypal is asking for a debit or a credit card so the payment can be completed.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Friendley,


What you can try doing is purchasing Cash Credits, and then using credits to purchase the membership.

Go here and choose the "WA Cash Credits" option instead of CC or Paypal.

Hi Frencis, your billing is set to renew on the 26th of each month and will continue so that you do not need to worry about missing a payment or your account closing. You will not lose any work if your account was closed for any reason - we save the work and you can resubscribe at any time if need be. Your account is in good standing now :)

Hey Carson. Thanks for the opportunity to be part of this. I'm getting through the training and getting ready to put the niche in action. I know that going premium down the road will help and that is my goal. What I would like to do is build revenue to pay for the monthly premium rates and any other cost that may be needed. Is that possible to achieve in the starter side of the house? If so I would like some advice on that and build a niche around that later on down the road. Again thanks and I look forward one day meeting you in Vegas. Have an amazing weekend.

You're more than welcome Mark, great to meet you and have you on board at WA! Building revenue is certainly possible as a Starter. That said it's going to take much longer because you will need to learn without the training courses we've built. Also as a Premium members you can communicate to ask questions and get coaching where as a Starter member that runs out after the initial trial period.

It's suggested to go Premium so that you can continue in the training and build the foundation of your business (and generate revenue). It is required? No. Is Premium recommended? ABSOLUTELY.

I am at boot camp number 5 in training.I finish the on line entrepreneur one before boot camp. I think I needs more work on
my posts and finding good or better keyworks. Mostly making my post better. Writing the post to get to one thousand words seems hard right now. I think I have written a high of five hundred or so. But I do think the more I write maybe I will eventually get to one thousand words or more. So thats some of my bumps. Thanks to you and all of the community for your help.
Reply
Carson Premium
Awesome to hear that you're already in Bootcamp course 5 Phillip - try and get your content to 1000+ words before publishing, it'll be much more thorough and better suited to answer the questions that your audience have. 500 word posts will not rank nearly as well, so you'll be best to spend a bit more time on the content before publishing. That said, you're doing great, regularly publishing is something many folks find difficult, so keep going!

hi there! Hope I can catch you, I have no idea of y'all's hours you're usually around. First, I would like to thank you and Kyle for the opportunity to be here. Next, for my question. I would love to get started on my first website and need your advice/opinion of my niche. I have several on my list and narrowed it down to 2, well, let's say 3. one is more my pick for "WorkoutsForMe" or "WorkoutsICanDo"... exercises and workouts for the elderly, handicap and those with limited physical abilities. The next is "AsSeenOnTV", which is the obvious, of things we've seen in television commercials. The next has been my search for a while (until I found it here) for "FinancialIndependence", which is the work at home possibilities, focusing, obviously here. lol I figured I'd be best to wait on this one a bit though until I actually know what I'm doing and can have better input. What do you think? Are any of them good to start?
Reply
Carson Premium
Hi Patty, yes I'm definitely around and it's been a super crazy week for us but I'm getting back to everyone who's reached out in the past few days now.

Personally I'd make a decision between Workouts / Work from Home. "As seen on TV" is far too broad, there are just too many products to effectively connect with any specific audience.

The work from home / affiliate marketing niche is absolutely massive and we have a dedicated set of training for it in the Affiliate Bootcamp. It'll help you learn how to help folks make decisions on how to build online businesses and work from home, with the focus on bringing people to WA. That said, the fitness industry is equally as large.

Choose the direction that you are most passionate about - your audience in the Work From home industry is literally everyone on this planet. Your audience in the Fitness niche if you target the elderly or disabled will be far smaller - that said it's still going to be a huge market.

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!
Reply
PattyMc Premium
Thank you. I decided on starting with exercises for the elderly and those with limited physical abilities. I am feeling pretty good about this direction and looking forward to building with it.

Making my list made me realize that I DO have hobbies that I didn't think of being hobbies until I made my list. Things that are important to me and that I do have knowledge on, but also a knowledge that I am constantly building on.

And yes, work from home / affiliate marketing is on my list, too, however, my knowledge is still quite 'green', so I would like to do a bit of learning before I take off with that.

And thank you for the posts by Kyle! I just read them and they are quite informative, something I'd like to go back to, on occasion, to remind myself and stay focused.

I appreciate the check-ins, it makes me feel like y'all are watching my back. :) I hope soon that I'll have something a bit bigger to tell you about. :)

Please just tell me... and don't take this the wrong way but there are so many scammers out there so I am just putting this out there. My issues are not your problem but just a little background so you know where I am in life.

I am willing to put in the time but money is something I do not have. 2 heart attacks and a triple bypass 11/4/17 took care of that. And no, I am not someone likely to have had a heart attack. I am a very type A personality and do not like not having control and a direction. I was 48, no problems, no blockages. My aorta dissected from the inside. I am in a research program at Vanderbilt in Nashville, TN were they also discovered I have an brain aneurysm.
I cannot live on what I make now, so throwing time and money away is something I cannot afford.
Is this something I can really make money with or are you just selling the premium package so you make money.
Sorry to be so blunt but unfortunately this is the world we live in.
Just need to make my like better!

I'm reaching out for a quick question , this is actually the 4TH time im reaching out to someone about this issue. I already opened a ticket, asked in the live chat and sent a message to Kyle looking for an answer. My question is.... does wealthy affiliate send out 1099 forms for tax season? I have made a little over $1000 directly from wealthy affiliate in 2018 and was wondering if I would receive a 1099 tax form or if there is anywhere I can download it. Please help me with this question as I will be filing my taxes soon.

Hi Alexander - no we do not send out any tax forms. Any income that is earned will need to be claimed by you personally on your taxes following your local tax laws. You can see a history of all payouts made to you on your Affiliate Stats page here:

Hi Erik,

Please see my response in the discussion we are having via Private Messages. I suggest trying a different analytics Property. Just create a new property, add that property to your All-in-one SEO settings and see if your real-time tracking is working.

If you've updated something in your Analytics account that is preventing real-time tracking from working then I'm unable to find it. I've logged into your account a number of times to help out here and all seems to be reporting. Please respond in the private message so we can keep the discussion in one place.

Hello Carson
Thank you for your reply to my message.
I see that there will be plenty of help in finding a niche when I upgrade.
I'm not too worried about finding a niche which will probably be some thing to do with healthy eating or slimming etc. What worries me is that I will need to write articles about whatever niche I'm in and unfortunately I just have a very general knowledge about things, not enough to write articles of any value. Do you cover this problem once I've upgraded. I know Kyle says it's very easy to write articles but if it's about something I know nothing about it's the hardest thing of all as far as I'm concerned.

Thank you very much for your introductory email. I am very impressed with what I've seen of Wealthy Affiliate so far. I see that Kyle uses his expertise with basketball as his example - unfortunately I haven't got any great expertise in anything so it won't be easy for me to write articles.

I m sure that if I start with my question ..they are a thousand !
but for now just following the course up that you have in place I believe it s important part for me that I m starting again to re -fresh a bit and know which way I want to go about .
also I will browse the profile of others members and comments to understand better the WA.
you are a leader here and I wish you could send me a strategy plan for me on which is the best way of attack and what arms/tools
and expenses I have to kind of afford to generate some income , so really I know there s no short cut but maybe you know how to set me up in avoiding some of the mistake that common bloke like me will do .... so in need of a strategy plan with an Idea sore off of the cost and way to go about ( i don t ask to much really hey ahah ah) hey Carson I know you understand me especially knowing that I coming up from my knees just this year so I will want to be the

Thanks for the message Pietro - we look forward to working with you here at WA and I think that as you re-fresh you will really start to be clear about the direction to take.

The best way to avoid mistakes is to follow our training step-by-step, lesson by lesson, task by task. Those who skip steps are the ones who can set themselves behind and have to go backward. That would be my best advice as you are getting started :)

Thank U Carson, U are very generous to give me a hand. I may be the dumbest creature in Ur flock. I was an electronics teck in the Navy in 1953 Radar repair wqas my specialty. ATT gave the transistor to everybody. I worked for Western Electric before I was drafted. When I came home in 57 I went back to work with Weco and later transfered to ATT in toll dept. They still used operators between citys I retired in 82 but I owned a small farm so was not doing much radio or TV. I still used a lot of my electrical knowledge but I didnt get a computer till late in the game I like email. I dont understand a lot of terminoligy so get confused, My age may be part of my problems, 85 on march 30. Thank U I will try to fix or just grab a new web site from U. Jim

Hi Carson,

Thanks for reaching out to me.

I'm looking to start a home business and this looks like this could be the right ticket for my wife and me.

It looks like The Premium service is the way to go. But I need just a little help to do this. I get paid on 2/15 (Friday). My last day to get Premium for $19 is Thur., 2/14. Would you be able to give me an extra day. Finances are very tight right now for us. I hope you can understand. Also, will that lock in my rate at $19/month?

Thanks for responding.

All the best,

Brian Sherman :)

Hi Brian,

Yes we can certainly give you some extra time to get the $19 first month special pricing. The $19 rate is only for the first month and the regular monthly pricing is $49/mo. The absolute best option would be to invest in the yearly option which works out to just $29/month, but it's paid up front. Another option would be to pay for the $19 first month, then upgrade to yearly before the end of your first months billing period.

You've got loads of options and there is no place in the industry that you can build and run an online biz for as low as $49/month, let alone $29 when paid up front for the year.

I look forward to working with you and helping out in every way I can.

Hey Carson,

Thanks for getting back to me and presenting those options. It looks like I'll be considering investing with the $19, and then trying to have the needed funds for the yearly amount before my month runs out.

And from your last e-mail, I would guess there are no monthly payments that I can make for the program. Am I right?

Worst case sceanario is I'd have to join up when I can raise the money for the program and pay for 1 yr. up front.

Thanks for your consideration on my best options.

Hi Brian,

You can most certainly stay on the MONTHLY billing plan which is $49/month after your first month at the discount $19 rate. You are currently setup on Monthly billing. Many folks start off monthly, then switch to yearly once they have the funds available. Even at $49/month you're getting an incredible amount of value out of that and you can run your entire business with the training, support, tools and websites included.

Let me know if you need a hand with anything as you move forward :)

Carson,
Thanks so much for this helpful answer.
I'm encouraged. Time for me to carve out several hours a day for disciplined training.

By the way, Premium has so many different roads for someone to take. Based on the personal approach that you take with people, I would look forward to mentoring so that I stay on the best path possible to generate regular passive income. Is that doable?

All the best,
Brian :)

Hey Brian,

If you can carve out a couple of ours a day to dedicate to learning and building your biz with the help of WA, you'll be up and running very very quickly.

Some folks start generating income within weeks, some it takes a bit longer. It all comes down to YOU, and your dedication to learning how to build a website. You can literally be in position to earn revenue the second you setup a website and here at WA that only takes a few minutes. That said, to get traffic to your affiliate links on your website, you need traffic and that request you to publish content on the site.

If you have questions please let me know!

Thanks for responding Carson. I appreciate your kind words. So I've always wondered, how do you attract people to your website and what ways can a website designer use to then help people commit to buying a product introduced to my website? That's what it's all about, right?
All the best,
Brian :)

Hi Brian, this is all explained in great detail in the training that you are working through. People will find your website in Google when they search - you'll learn to post on your website to attract people and rank in Google. We'll show you how to do everything :)

Good-day Carson,
Thanks for answering my question. I have a couple more:
1. How do those perks work exactly when someone says that they "Liked" what I wrote?
2. It seems that an important part of my business is responding to the WA community via replying to e-mails as well. It does seem be taking more and more time. I am unexpectly popular I guess.
Do you respond to everyone who e-mails you too?
Thanks for responding, Carson.
Appreciatively,
Brian :)

Hello, Carson.
I have been perusing some of the comments and questions sent to you and while I am not discouraged, my "spidey sense" has been tweaked. I realize that oftentimes the people who complain and/or want their money back are the ones who don't want to - or cannot - put the work in. I'm not looking for you to make me rich, Carson, I am perfectly capable of doing that myself. What concerns me is the technical questions that appear to go unanswered. I have yet to go Premium, but it is definitely in my plans for the near future. So, apart from the usual rhetoric, how can you assure me that this will be a worthwhile investment? I look forward to your response.

Hello Carson, this is to inform you that I was not paid on the 1st day of the month, whereas, I heard that others got paid. This is my first month of expecting to receive payment in the community and the payment delay got me worried. Please, can you help on getting me paid today?

Thank you.

Hi, i want to let you know that i am learning a lot and im so excited to continue my journey. But.... I do have a question? Where can i get training on how to actually use the word press platform to make menus, categories, pages and so on. so far in the lessons/training we have only learned how to make a post like 6 of them so far and nothing else. People keep suggesting i add stuff to website but i simply don't know how to do to lack of training in that area. So before i continue to pay monthly for this is there anything you can provide me with or point me in the right direction to learn these steps needed to create diffent task using the word press platform?

I need to know why I am not been paid when I have about $98 pending payments. I have sent you several messages with no reply. What is going on. I was of the impression that wealthyaffiliate pays all its members. What on earth is going on. I need to know

Thanks so kindly, Carson! I've just finished updating my PayPal email. I've updated the payment settings with the PayPal email I want to use to receive payments. You can send the payment to my PayPal ID (pioneeraffiliates2017@gmail.com) even right now. Thanks a lot! Trust you forever!

I’m so sorry Carson.. I thought I could do this but I can’t. This is honestly very overwhelming for me. I don’t spend anytime with my son because I’m always on here. I keep having to think of what to write and all these things on my mind, I don’t focus on other things. And my son and husband need a lot of attention. I thought I could warm myself up to this but I really can’t. I can’t always be on here, and I don’t want y’all charging me every month if I’m not always on here. I want to be completely dedicated. So therefore I want to cancel my subscription with you guys. At least for now. Maybe in the future I’ll give this another shoot.

Hi Carson,
Congrats to both you and Kyle, there is obviously a strong chemistry between you two. I can see the opportunity you guys have created in order for people like myself , and that is, someone with not a lot of computer or internet marketing savvy to create a business. I need to make this work so I will say this now, I need a good educater and with your CV I know I can make this work. Hopefully we can talk soon. Marcus

Hello my name is Christina Law. I need the information on how to delete my account and ongoing out of bank transfer to Wealthy Affiliates from my bank account. I have not been committed to the process although I imagine this program to be awesome. Today is February the 1st 2019. You can see by my account set up and the lack of training that I barely used the program. Please see about deleting my account ASAP and my automated withdrawals from my bank. I would greatly appreciate this. Maybe a later date I can get back on board and stay. Provide me with steps I need to take to ensure this happens. I will be copying this notification for my records and other legal purposes. Thanks Carson in advance.

I’m soo sorry Carson I am a very undecisive person, if I could keep my subscription with you guys I want to see where it takes me I have a good feeling about this. It just I let people get in my head instead of making my own choices. I shouldn’t be like that. But again I do apologize, and hopefully I make some money before the bill comes in!

Hello Carson, I’m sorry could I cancel my subscription here with you guys. I just don’t see a future here with you guys right now, I also don’t have enough funds for all my expenses. Also could I have a refund from premium, I’ve only had it 4 days..

Carson, that sounds great, but I'm really puzzled. I thought we were supposed to be selling something from you. I have some ideas but so far I have not been able to accomplish anything with them. I was planning to start selling your products first and then I could ease into mine. This way I'm just as lost as I ever was, and I don't have a lot of time left that I can ask questions, so I'm doing that now. Unless I can break this trend, I'm still where I was, no closer to my dreams or financial stability. I'm not expecting a get rich overnight thing, but I need to see something happening. If I can get something started with and for you, I'll be able to do mine as well. I'm trying not to get discouraged, but I'm desperate. I HAVE to get something started, or I'm going to be unable to continue. We have very limited start up and I have to make sure this will work before I put money I really need into it. So far it appears to be like a social site with good people, but nothing that will pay the bills. I need help.
Everyone keeps telling me to complete the lessons in the Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started Level 1, which I've already done...but I'm still kind of out there. "Notice: Your ability to Ask Questions ends in 4 days." I have to know there is something in the box before I buy a ticket to see what else might be there. I want this to be real and work but I've wasted my time on dreams before...I need some of those dreams to start coming true. Can you help me?

I liked what I have read about you thus far. I read an e-book called "The beginners Affiliate Marketing blueprint" before I got into wealthy affiliate. So now on my journey to self proclaimed wealth, where do start? or what is my first step and what do I need to be studying as of now?

Well hi! Thanks for messaging me. I am so excited to be here. Once I get the hang of this thing I plan on repeating the process a few times. I've been looking for a platform for this opportunity since I lost 2 business licences last June. Believe it or not i got the idea from an uber video then I got that free video training from Khan and couldn't afford their $1000 training program. You guys will probably get more from me than they ever will. But I say all that to say I am really excited. Thank you for the opportunity.

Hi Carson,Noland here.Pleased to meet you as well.Of all of the affiliate companies I have partnered with,none were as loving and accepting as you folks...Being full of doubt mistrust and fear, It is kind of overwhelming.

I have had a desire to succeed online for a long time..I know it's a real deal.This is where our future is headed...I want to be a part of it for me,my family,my friends,people I can help succeed.

Carson,to let you know how long i have been trying to succeed on line.My wife suffered a massive stroke about 12 years ago.I would not allow her to be put in a home,so I became her care giver and she has been with me ever since.She is Ok.She just can't work or function outside the like most people.Immediately I knew I wanted,needed to find something i could do to earn a living and stay home...

Now I don't tell you this to appeal to your since of sympathy,but to say that some how,some way I will succeed.Why?My wife can't drive,but I want to buy her that dream car.She can't travel on her own to go see our kids,but I want to give those dream vacations.We live in a modest one bedroom apt.She does her best to clean when I'm at work,so I want to buy her that beautiful home.I want her to have the best home health care other than me...

So where does this leave me now?Well,I want to trust you.Believe you. I pray everyday for people and situations to help me succeed online.I will start and engage with this program.There is a level of sincerity with you folks I've never experienced. But please understand that I have some open wounds that are kind of holding me back from experiencing full faith in affiliate marketing.I keep going at it because I know it is so real....Thanks for reaching out to me....

Hello Carson. We have only only been with WA two days, but plan on it being a long term thing. I am two people...Dusty Ray and Kay Renee Vaughn, A.K.A. Bobby and Karen Short for legal purposes. We are a band called The CayJays.(Google us). We want to make this a success, but we have no idea of how to do it. What would be a huge help to us and others new to this marketing plan is a single paragraph that states in simple terms the what, where, who, why and how of the business..., You know, a WA for Dummies
quick start guide. Can you do that? I really, really want this to work. Do you have local chaptors and meetings? We'd love that. In case you haven't guessed, we came out of an Amway/Quixstar background, and loved it till they lost their family society and warmth. If any of this is possible, and you will help me, We want to help make you rich.lol.

Hi Carson,

you have so beautiful and lovely family. Thank you for creating this warm and workable community for us. My son Roope convinced me that this is the best place to be and that is so true. I am so happy I found this opportunity to learn online business.

My life was full of everything even before this and now I am going to arrange and have arranged time for this also. Little by little I learn more. The training is awesome and Roope also gives me so useful tips for anything I need.

My hobbies beside this is tennis, gym, nordic walking, skiing, volleyball, reading, baking, playing gospel music by guitar, serving in church etc. I have many kind of education (for example in data processing and computing) and various job background. Now I have been working as a office worker in a private clinic in Oulu's city center, in the northern Finland for ten years. Maybe online business is later on more than just a hobby to me.

Have an awesome time there in Las Vegas. I am sure you all enjoy to be there and seeing each others face to face.

All the best,
Eija
