I'm Chris from Southern England, I'm in my 30s and seeking new horizons in life, an adventurer, cloudchaser, miniature wargamer, musician and just have a desire to learn and grow. I know that it takes more than a day to do well in almost anything. After all 'a journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step'. Sometimes making an effort to believe can make all the difference. Buy anyhow, hello :)

Welcome to premium!

So happy that you have decided to take this step in your journey towards achieving your dreams. You will gain so much from being here.

The training here is great and you should follow it to the letter.

The community here is the very best I have personally encountered. (and I have tried a few)
It is NOT a race, if you treat it as one, then you will only cheat yourself. I hope to bump into you along your path.

Once again, welcome aboard!! Blessings ~ Frank & Tina (free4life)

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Premium!

Glad that you joined us.

WA is an amazing environment to learn and apply our skills towards creating an online business.

There are so many tricks of the trade and it saves so much time having it all laid out clearly in the WA training programs.

Keep following the training and exercises every day. Give it a year to see significant results. You'll be a happy camper by then. We all make progress at different rates and it is possible to see meaningful results in 4-6 months. Google cannot be rushed.

When you get stuck, and you will, just ask for help in the discussion area located below each lesson. Scroll down to find it. Another member who has the answer will get back to you promptly.

In the meantime have fun with the program. Much success to you.

Thank you for the kind words, about to start a new bit of training just now. Sometimes you have to be realistic on what you want to achieve! It is very true though, we live on Google's terms. Thanks anyway :)

Made a start, but I did kind of already set up my profile before I did the training. But I made the first step! It's often the hardest!

Welcome and congratulations on becoming a Premium member! You have made a great decision and you will not regret it.
If you haven't already noticed, the community support is amazing and the training is just out of this world (well the internet world, lol).
Anyway, as the saying goes: You Only Live Once, so make this the best thing that has ever happened in your life.
I am happy to be part of your network and to be part of your story here at WA.
Best wishes,
CAtkins85 Premium
Thank you, already taken aback from how much support and welcome i have received. Its shows how much of an engaging community WA is. It helps to be around people who wish you to succeed. Of course it's not going to be easy but the first step is often the hardest. Cheers :)

What's up Christopher, just wanted to see how you were doing and if you need any help. Let me know!

BTW in case you missed the message, you also get free keyword searches in Jaaxy (find the tool on the sidebar). "Keywords" are the main thing we use to structure our content so we get ranked in Google.

If you need some help understanding Jaaxy just respond to this message and I can send a training video to you.

PS. I found a few more success stories I wanted you to see!

Just wanted to shoot you a quick message and see how things were going thus far Christopher? I am here to help if you ever need a hand with anything, just holler!

PS. Also, quick reminder. Today is the last day to get your first month discount/bonuses. No rush, no worries. Just a simple reminder here. :)

Hey Christopher, I just wanted to check in and see if you had any questions about what you've seen at WA so far. A lot of people get information overload in the first couple days!

The one piece of advice that helped me when I got started was that there is a huge difference in success rates between those that interact with the community and those that don't. You don't have to be a social butterfly, but here's a few basic things you can do:

1) Put up a profile pic

2) Write a short introduction about yourself

3) Drop in on my profile to say hello

Doing these things will help you meet people in the community and see what WA is all about. You can start learning how to build a profitable business on the internet by clicking the "Training" button on your left.

I hope you enjoy your time in Wealthy Affiliate!


PS. Here's a shortcut link to the training:

Thank you, one of the WA emails has cited that your site was the one that recommended me here so thanks for that. I feel there is much we can all learn from each other. Might be new, but maybe in time I'll share that same knowledge. Other online sources got me thinking about affliate marketing and the internet in general. When going into this stuff you aren't going to make a thousand dollars straight away. If it was that easy, we'd all be doing it. Being in for the long haul is worth it. And writing about things that you are into can make a hobby a business but in a more enjoyable way. But cheers :)
nathaniell Premium
"If it was that easy, we'd all be doing it." Exactly. Earning money online isn't complicated, but it does take a lot of work!

Keep me in the loop with your progress man, and good luck with the training!

Hey Christopher, just wanted to pop back and see how you are doing. I noticed that you haven't quite set-up your account yet, just wanted to let you know there is a video on how to do this if there is any confusion. Setting up your account will lead to much better help here within the community as people feel like they can connect with you better (with an image and a description)

Just wanted to make sure that all was good and if you do need a hand with anything, just let me know! :)
CAtkins85 Premium
Thank you for asking, I don't know many places par se where a founder will be welcoming. I'm probably going to start look at those emailed videos. I find the email updates very useful. Bit busy right now but intend to dive into the training this evening. I have only known about affliate marking and what it was for a fortnight via something I saw on FB so this is all new but have realistic expectations.
Kyle Premium
We honestly wouldn't have it any other way Christopher. We built WA based on helping folks and in the 13 years we have been in business we have not veered away from this.

We have lots of exciting stuff coming through this year and into next year that will continue to further benefit members and continue to validate the idea of putting members (YOU) first. :)

As for learning this stuff, you are going to be learning all about it in the early stages of the training. If you ever have any questions though, just let me know. ;)

I look forward to working with you!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Christopher!

Nathaniell here - you probably remember me from my site One More Cup of Coffee. I'm glad to see you've signed up and are ready to get started building your online business.

Right now, there are just two super important things you need to know.

1) If you ask questions and interact with the community you are far more likely to see results with your business. The support here at WA is the best in the industry...please take advantage of it.

2) You can talk to me about anything! I've been a member for 9 years now, so I'll be able to personally answer any of your questions about WA or starting an online business. Leave a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/nathaniell or respond directly to this message!

There are a ton of other features worth exploring, but they are explained in the main training. Time to get started on the first lesson!

PS. Did you know that you'll already have your website built by lesson 4? Crazy, I know!

PPS. See who has already made money by following WA's training: ★ ★ ★ Access Your Bonuses! ★ ★ ★

Since you joined through me, I've got two surprises for you when you join the Premium membership.

☆ Live Case Study Webinar Series ☆

Watch a professional do things step by step and get an overview of how this biz works. Watch him build the website, including research, rank, content creation and monetization. Total length of the videos is 2+ hours

Shave off 3-4 weeks of startup time when you avoid these mistakes. These common time-wasters will delay results for many newbies. Get your business ranked and earning money as fast as possible.


Before you go, can you please respond to this message so I know you made it inside the community? I'd like to connect with you so I can keep an eye out for your questions this week.

CAtkins85 Premium
I had replied on your other post but hey that site of yours is very helpful and informative. I intend to do a fair bit this evening as I plan to go premium and get going. But I will be wary of newbie mistakes too :)
nathaniell Premium
Awesome. Thank for reaching out man. Just responded to the other comment!
