About ClarkTan
Joined September 2016
I am still new here in WA. Hopefully I will be able to get help and support from all of you.

I am very eager to learn here and to get my own websites started, I am already expecting a bumpy road ahead because I have no knowledge what so ever in building a website or how it works but I have read reviews even videos that WA teaches you to all of this things. Hopefully I will be able to understand it.

I have certain goals in life (Traveling, Pay for a wedding, The wedding ring! lol) that I want to achieve but with a low wage everyday job would not be able to take me there. I have heard that some has started in WA and ended up leaving their everyday jobs so that they could do all they want and just be a full time online marketer. That would be awesome!.

Thank you for your time in reading this. Hope to see you around in WA.

Great goals Clark,

The first step to achieving success online is to set some goals and now that you have done this you can start working towards them. Your goals are absolutely achievable and realistic. Dedicate yourself to working through the training, taking action, and getting help when you need it.

I am personally here to help you and there are many others within the community that will reach out to help too.

You are already doing great, keep it up!

Hi, Clark, nice to meet you. Always great to meet a fellow travel enthusiast. Did you know you don´t really need a lot of money to travel? You can read a bit about this on my website (link on my profile page). I will expand the info yet.
Well, I wish you all the best here and in your business endeavors!

Hello Tez! Well one thing is for sure that money is definitely involved in traveling but one thing that concerns me the most is my day job and I can't afford to leave and travel. :D but with this I might have a chance! I wish the best as well Tez!

Hello Clark Tan. I too know or knew nothing about making a website, but I'm learning. It's going kind of slow but I'm not giving up. So my advice is don't be a quitter. Keep strong, no matter what keep your goals in front of you at all times. Good luck.

Thanks for the follow, Clark -- following you back. Welcome aboard and all the best to you here at WA. As you follow through the training, you'll get lots of information on building websites. Be sure to understand each lesson as you go along and ask any questions that come up. (Each lesson builds on things that you've learned in previous lessons.)

Clark, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Clark.

Hi Clark,

Thank you for the follow! I am following you now as well.

Yes, you can do it all and more. I am fairly new as well.

My best advice is to take each lesson of the training step-by-step, watch the video for that lesson if there is one, read the lesson, then go and do what you learned on your own website. Each lesson will ask you to go and do what you just learned on your own website.

If you follow this exactly, you will move through the training and pretty soon your entire website is built! Also, make sure to join Jay's live training webinars every Friday night. They are so helpful.

I wish you continued success here!

Hello Clark,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link on the right (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.

Hello Robert! Yes, yes it is but that won't stop me from my goals! :) Most definitely! I probably read some of your blogs already.

I have a question though Robert, Kyle said there are incentives when you get to Ambassador. I am trying to be one myself. May I ask what are the incentives?

It will really boost my morale in trying to be one. Thank you.

Kind regards,
Clark Tan

Robert-A Premium
Hello Clark
Yes there are supposed to have been incentives rolled out this year for Ambassadors but to date I haven't seen any mentioned.
I believe its only for the top ten or twelve.
I have been an Ambassador for over a year now and to be honest with you - I never set out to achieve this status.
I just like helping people and I love to write.
Put the two together and I publish blogs on just about every aspect of Internet marketing.

Most of the membership are only interested in earning an income from the internet and therefore you don't see many of them achieve the Ambassadorship status.

The 25 Ambassadors are really the ones who are like myself and help the membership to achieve their goal.

Hope this answers your questions and my advice to you is.
Concentrate ALL your efforts on getting your online business up and running.
Once you have achieved that then you can think about helping others achieve it as well.
Enjoy your Thursday.
Robert

Hello Robert,

Thank you for taking your time to give me a reply. I see, I went through the courses, I think it was the last lesson in course 2 that Kyle mentioned there are also incentives of the ambassadors and he didn't mention what it was so I was curious.

Yes! That's the plan Robert because with my current skills right now. It isn't enough to help the people here yet. But If it's within my skill set I would of course help them.

Thank you so much Robert, I really appreciate this.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hello Kyle,

Wow! thank you for taking the time to write this. I am currently in the Course 1, Lesson 7 in the getting started tab. On the Jaaxy topic right now. Would've been nice if premium members gets discounts in getting pro in Jaaxy! :)

But nevertheless you have created videos that is so easy to understand and learn. It is right that you don't have to be a IT expert to learn this, everything is already here in WA.

I already have different ideas of a niche but I still lack the research if it will work out there in the internet world. haha.

I hope for your future support Kyle.

Thank you,
Clark Tan
Reply
Kyle Premium
You have access to the WA keyword tool here as a Premium member so you can definitely use that. Jaaxy is another completely separate business/program and if you want to use that, you can but it is not mandatory.

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. :)

I am always surprised every time you make time replying to everyone Kyle. I mean there are like hundreds of thousands of us here. I really appreciate it.

I actually went through the lessons yesterday you mentioned in your video about the WA keyword tool in one of the tutorials. haha :)

I already found a keyword it was in the diamond list. Amazing list by the way! I already have my own domain and website. Got my About me and Privacy contents down now I am writing my other contents for now.

Thank you for your support Kyle!

Awesome Clark, you are making some brilliant progress. As you move forward, keyword research is also going to become second nature so you are going to be able to come up with massive lists of keywords in your industry all on your own.

I really look forward to working with you and if you need a hand with anything moving forward let me know. :)

Hello Kyle,
Thank you for your kind words! I have 2 questions though. It has been 2 days and still I am not yet indexed in google. I don't know where I have gone wrong.

1. Is there something I missed?
2. Is the keyword the one in my post title? Or is it the Home page title?

I'm sorry if i'm asking too much of your time.

Thank you,
Clark

Kyle Premium
Hey Clark,

It usually takes 7-14 days to get your site initially indexed in Google (sometimes quicker). That is completely normal.

As you build out your website content and as you get engagement on your website, it will only continue to get indexed quicker. Google will continue to grant you more and more authority as they deem your website to be of value and before long you will see your new content getting indexed almost instantly.

Just part of the process and you are absolutely heading in the right direction. :)

Hello Kyle,

Oh good! I thought I was doing something wrong and I missed out a couple of toggles in the settings.

I am on my third post already and I also made one review.

I was wondering if you could take a look at my website and hopefully give me some pointers? I love constructive criticism because I know it's good for me.

Thank you Kyle.

So far so good Clark, nice work! I do have a few suggestions here:

(1) Your header image on some of your posts is far too big and takes away from your actual content. People need to scroll down in order to see your content. The visuals and the relevant imagery should be placed directly inside your content instead of a static and overwhelming header that shows on every page.

I would either minimize this or remove it altogether, it is not offering any value to your end user and is impacting their experience in a negative way.

Ex. http://remediesfordogs.com/how-often-should-you-bathe-your-dog

(2) Focus on getting more comments and engagement going within your posts.

We have a SiteComments platform here at WA where you can get comments on your pages/posts. Within the SiteRubix menu under SiteComments you will be able to gain access to this platform. Here is the direct link:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/comments/requests

This is great for getting engagement on your website (which leads to rankings) and this is what I suggest you do with every new post you build on your website.

Overall though, off and running and heading in the right direction.
Reply
ClarkTan Premium
Hello Kyle!

I took your advise. I took out the featured images in the post but still have the featured image intact in the homepage. It does make a big impact, it looks way cleaner and professional now.

About that Kyle I already did offer 14 comments but the thing is I got blocked.

"We're sorry, too many of your previous comments have been reported as spam, being inappropriate, or low quality. You do not have the ability to leave further comments."

I only was declined 3 times and I was never spamming all of my comments was unique. Is there a duration for this?

Thanks,
Clark
Reply
Kyle Premium
When you are using the SiteComments platform, your goal is to add to the dialogue of the content and to be highly relevant to the content within the post.

If the post is about "how to lose weight fast online", then your comment should be about this exact topic. Ask a question, offer insight into your experiences within the topic, etc. You ARE NOT critiquing a website, you are not commenting on how you like the layout and you are do not want to comment things like "Great post" as it offers no value.

Here is some training on how the SiteComments platform works: You should watch this before you make another comment as it will offer you a good deal of perspective here.

PS. I have reset your threshold for you. Just be very careful moving forward.

I see you decided to, what I like to call "Take the Leap" as well. First I would like to say Congratulations. Not only on taking the first step towards a better career opportunity, but also the first step at a better life. Not only are you about to embark on a major learning and building adventure. You also get to share this experience with many like minded people like yourself, on that very same adventure. I myself am no expert, but if there is anything I can do to help you along the way, please don't hesitate to ask. I wish you all the best in your future here at Wealthy affiliate.

Clark,

Yes, that is very much so a possibility. There are commissions out there that pay hundreds of dollars per sale. Not saying these are super common, but they do exist.

You just have to be willing to do the research in your chosen niche and find them. Almost any company selling things online and some in store, have affiliate programs. And as I said, some of these can pay big.
