Hey Craig, just clicked back here from your site. (Which I have saved in my favorites now) Wow, very valuable information. And am going to check out your book. I am once again amazed at the quality people I have met here at WA. It is a privilege to correspond with someone of your character. Thanks Carson 1

Thanks for the follow Craig, I had a look at your website and its looking really well. I read several of your articles about making money online and staying motivated, they are well written and I must say I agree with many your opinions. I do take surveys online but have found it is a very long road to even be able to earn £20-£30 Paypal card, probably between 40-80 surveys depending on which website you use.
I have created my very first website www.myfitness4you.com, its a work in progress but feel free to take a look, I would value your input.
Thanks

Congrats on starting your site Craig! That first step can be a doosy at first till you get the lessons done and implemented a few times. Knowing how to research and write it all down is half the battle of curating content your visitors will enjoy! See you around the platform.

Just had a brief look at your web page - I like it, quite original even though it's about a common theme...... wish you all the best with that. I'm just getting started myself, and have great expectaions of this site, having been already scammed out of nearly $60K. Life goes on ..............

Hi Craig. Thanks for following me. I checked out your website and I love it! You pulled me in instantly starting off with motivation. I definitely stayed more than 20 seconds! Your content is interesting and informative, and I believe many of us who can relate. Your graphics are great as well. The only issue I noticed is the "join here" links under "Wealthy Affiliate - My Review" on the first page are not showing up as active. When I click through to "read more" they are active on that page. It appears you enjoy helping people and giving back.

To your success!

Hello Craig ... thank you for the follow. That's an interesting site domain name. Sounds like you are driven to tell your boss to ... take this job and shove it, lol.

Check out Johnny Paychecks lyrics for his CW song of the same title. Take this job and shove it, I ain't working here no more ...

I wish you the best on your WA journey ... and hope you get a chance to use these lyrics very soon.

Will you take a look at my-buzz.com and give me an honest appraisal?
As an experienced journo, I'm sure any feedback from you would be invaluable.
In particular, do you think centering my copy is a good idea? I personally like it, but one or two have said it's harder to read.
Thanks in anticipation, Thomas.

Hello CraigG1:

I checked out your website it looks really nice! Are you sure you haven't built websites before? Your website looks very professional.

I just purchased a domain before i signed up with WA with GoDaddy and the domain name is Affiliate Marketing now.com

I was planning on that being my second niche after I finished my current website with WA.

Anyway, your site is awesome!

Hello CraigG!:

Nice meeting you. I wanted to be a journalist once upon a time in my life.

Well, I am very new also with " Wealthy Affiliate" and you are probably alot further than I am in building your website.

For the last couple of weeks; my life has been very hectic; I have a granddaughter in Portland who is expecting her first baby; and she got in a car accident; and the doctors thought they were going to have to induce her - but, now they are just going to let her finish out her term.

So, I am expecting a new bundle of you anyday now!

And I have been taking a series of test for some unexpected challenges in my health; so this is life!

I am just now getting back to working on my website, so it will be the "blind" leading the "blind" so to speak!

But, I will be more than happy to look at your website.

I will be chatting with you soon and thank you for following me.

Hey Craig, Wow man, I went to your web site! Not close to being finished yet? Let me tell you, what is not close to being finished yet! I have entered my third month and I have built a web site but got stuck on the SEO part of it and there I am! I figured it out finally and was ready to move forward when I found that they were updated for 2017 and I was stuck again! So, talk about not being finished yet! Your web site looks fantastic to me! I am impressed! You will be making money in no time at all, as for me, I'm about to pack it in!! I can't be wasting my time like this, but, it is nice to see others doing well! Good job man!! I could never really get the hang of these computers! lol Bob

Thank you for inviting me to follow, Craig! At WA I'm a newbie, but my perspectives are long-term, continuing earlier work. There is clearly a lot to learn. WA is the place and community to be in - it is genuine and sincere. The best part is to get to know people.

Your blog and enthusiasm is inspiring - and reading the diverse sites here (and interact) is what I'll do a lot. My daily schedule is rather full, but as a 'yearly' at WA I intend to be here as much as time allows. (This response couldn't come earlier, as I've been away traveling.)

Your approach reminds me of old proverbs - each and every human experience and insight is found there!

Till next time,

There is a famous quote from Mark Twain:

"If it's your job to eat a frog, it's best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it's your job to eat two frogs, it's best to eat the biggest one first."

And that just means - do your hardest task first or at least as soon as you can in the morning. If you do this then the rest of your day is easy from there!

ANYWAY…

Hello, thanks for the follow and welcome to WA. You are definitely in the right place!

People have plenty to share and there is plenty to learn also so take your time and enjoy the experience.

I may not be in the top 200 list anymore (because I don’t socialize here much) but I do have many interesting posts on my site and some you might really like, many people do. I have over 2,000 positive comments, so take a look and get some ideas as to what you can do with your site.

Let me know if I can help you in any way

Looked over you website...very good information there.

I can't imagine being so personally involved in that tragedy (Marshall) as you were. I guess your choice of a career helps some...and your book will help insure your friends memories live on forever with the book.

By the way I went to Miami of Ohio and have many friends that went to Marshall ... I did not attend Miami until 1971 but the Marshall tragedy was a subject of interest and conversation to us.

I had visions of playing football at Miami...but I would have been a tackling dummy during that period as they were so good...I did go to their bowls games (Tangerine back then). I went on to play rugby there and continued into my 50's.

I think we all spend our lives missing the camaraderie and teamwork of our sports years.

Good Luck...but it does not seem you will need it.

Good afternoon to you Craig, my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. If you don't have any online marketing skills I suggest you start with the Get Started Here section first [top left green box]. You will learn how to select a niche, build a niche website and learn keyword research. All else is built around these three principles. You can promote other people's products, promote your own products, or both. In any case, the object is to earn an income.
I look forward to working with you and wish you much success and prosperity in your journey.

Craig, 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 Craig.

A few suggestions here:

(1) I recommend that you keep your menus on one line, versus flowing over into 2-3 lines. This makes the navigation experience much more comprehendible to your audience and also will put more emphasis on your content as your menu will not take up so much vertical space. You can do this with custom menus.

You can add these custom menus to organize your top menu in any way in which you like, as well as create sub-menus (for themes that will support this). You can also use these custom menus to add within your side widgets on your website (within your sidebar).

Here is a tutorial on how to create custom menus: I use custom menus on all of my websites (over-ride that default menu). It allows much more control and organization....both good things!

(2) You want content like this to be a "post" so that you can get comments and engagement on it.

http://mybossisfired.com/the-wealthy-affiliate-my-review

Everything you create moving forward should be created as a post. All posts allow for comments.

(3) You should be adding feature images to all of your posts. You can do this within the post editor for each post that you create, down the right hand side below the tags you will see the option to upload a feature image (see attached image for reference)

This will add an image beside your content snippet on your blog roll which makes your blog roll much more visual.

---

Overall, nice work. You are definitely off and running here. :)

Hi, Craig...

You are indeed at the right place to learn properly how to do this online marketing business...I tried a couple of other sites that purported to offer what WA does, but it quickly became apparent to me this was not the case...

As a fisherman is wont to say, "I cut bait and ran" from those sites and eventually came across Wealthy Affiliate while looking for something else doing research...

As they say, the rest of the story is that I am here to this day, 21 months later, a happy camper with this place and what is offered. It is a daily feed of pertinent information I look forward to...

In your case, it seems that this foray into online marketing will be an easy move for you. having a journalist background provides you the skill set to excel!

Good to meet you and best of luck!

Cheers!

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also 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 right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

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.

I'm thinking that heath & fitness would be a good niche for me to start with. Not sure if I should focus on diet and weight loss or fitness tips, trends and solutions for people over 50. What are your thoughts? Thanks in advance for sharing.
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Finding a good niche seems like a tough task, but it's actually pretty easy. Actually, ANY niche can make money, so you definitely should not worry if your niche is profitable or not. As far as competition goes, that's also something to not worry about. If there's competition, it just means people are making money. That means you can make some too! As time progresses, new products come out, new technology is introduced, new ideas formed, and each change is an opportunity for "the new kid" to get a foothold and overtake established websites.

So the big question is not "what" is going to make money, but "what do you want to make money with?"

In other words, what are your own interests?
What do you think would be interesting to research and write about?
What do you want to help people with?

A good sentence to help you decide your niche is "I want to help people _____"

Helping people is the best way to make money in any business. Everyone wins. Short of that, pick something that you just find interesting.

There are literally thousands of affiliate programs, products, and ways to make money in any niche or industry if you get creative. All of that will come into focus in Level 3 of your training, so for now, we just need to look at getting your topic chosen, your website built, and then start creating awesome content for your business!

So health and fitness is a good start, but what specifically? Bodybuilding for women will be a completely different topic from healthy eating for men over 50!
