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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thanks for the note. I'm really excited to get this underway. I sent an email to Kyle letting him know that I'm at a standstill on the website construction. After installing & activating Generate Press when I go to the site the 4 options for customization do not work. When you click any of the 4 links you receive Bad Request and a blank page. I await your support.

Hi Carlson,

It's such an honor to hear from you and thank you for the awesome welcome introduction. I can already sense the fruits of the foundation you have laid relative to the very warm community that has already embraced me.

I just signed up for the premium to ensure that I'm fully engaged from the start.

Presently, I'm at the website set up section of the training, and herein lies my first question. I do have an existing website:https://www.mckoyleisuretravel.com

I own the domain which is hosted by GoDaddy and the site itself was built by Voyager Travel. What steps should I take to set up my new website with Wealthy Affiliate?

With appreciation,
Randal

You don't have to use the website platform here if you don't want. You can use an existing site that you already have set-up with the training here or you can start fresh.

Sometimes with an existing site there may be some things that you have done in the past that could be hurting your rankings (backlinks, spun content, duplicate content, low quality content), so starting fresh and doing things properly from the start can be advantageous. But this is totally up to you.

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

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

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

Either way, I am here to help you along the way Randal!

You will want to be more specific with your niche. What aspect of Toys you want to help people with? Toys for toddlers? Dog toys?

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. :)
