About Devara
Joined January 2018
I've worked for CommScope since 1995; formerly TE Connectivity. I graduated last year from Davidson Country Community College with an Associates degree in Network and Cyber Security. During my time there I became very interested in websites, PHP, MySQL, and building databases. I want to try to have a 2nd income doing something I love doing. That's what brings me here to Wealthy Affiliate. I'm excited for the challenge in online marketing and think this will be a very good experience for me.

Thanks! Maybe I'm missing something.. What other courses are you referring to? I thought I was finished with the main ones. Please fill me in on what I'm missing. I looked at the Boot camp training and realized it was for learning how to promote WA itself. Thanks for the follow!

Hello Devara And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined back in January and with your professional experience you may well have come to the conclusion that internet marketing is a steep learning curve.

You must keep referring to the training.
If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 450+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me a message anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great Saturday
Robert.

Hi Devara

Thanks so much for the follow, I'm following you back too :)

If you need some inspiration for your WA journey, feel free to check out my recent post:
I'm sure you'll agree, there's some awesome tools on here for Wealthy Affiliate members.
I use Jaaxy for all of my Keyword research and SiteContent to draft all of my posts for my website. Here's a little trick that will show you how beautifully these tools integrate and also SAVE you time:
Canva is also a great tool that's quite popular with other WA members, to design stylish graphics, like headers etc, for their websites.
Wishing you every success and feel free to drop me a line anytime!

Hello Karen,
Thanks for all of the information and for following me back. Looks like I have a lot of homework to do now..
I do have a couple questions you may be able to help me with;

1. Where do you find the people that have followed you?

2. A few weeks ago I posted a lot of recipes to my site, but I did it straight from my site instead of using sitecontent here at WA. I think this was a mistake because they are not getting ranked. Should I remove them from my site and go through site content to publish them again?

Thanks so much for your help. It is much appreciated.

Best of luck,
Devara

Hi Devara, if you go to your profile page and click on view all under the people in your network, this will bring up a pop up window and you can see who you are following and who is following you (there are two tabs).

Don't redo your posts, I would leave them as is, and keep publishing more content. There's a ton of tutorials on how to get your content ranked on here, but just follow the training and you can't go to far wrong. Cheers, Karen

Experience with affiliate marketing? NO! Wish I did though. I'm trying hard. I work 3rd shift full time as a robotic machine operator/Mechanic and come straight home to WA and to write post that I'm slow at writing. I hope I get better at it because I love it, but I need the extra income too. I joined the premium membership, although I have a very tight budjet and can't really afford it.

Thanks! I hope my degree isn't a complete waste! It took me 3 years to get it while working 3rd shift full time. I didn't realize that I wasn't interested in my major until I was to far into it. I really love website material. I did my final project on WAMP Server. Through that I learned about WordPress websites, phpMyAdmin, and MySQL Databases. In fact, because of it I was recommended to a fitness trainer who needed their Excel spreadsheet of exercises transformed into a SQL database! That was a big challenge for me since that's not what I studied in school, but I did it! I'm really very excited about this WA program and feel its exactly where I need to be!

Hello!

Congratulations on going Premium here at WA.

I have found the weekly webinar very useful to watch and now that you’re a premium member you can too.

One tip though… be sure the topic being covered is what you need right now otherwise it won’t be the best use of your time.

If you can’t or don’t want to attend it live, there’s always the recordings. (See “Live Video Classes” under Training on the left hand menu.

Wishing you every success with your business goals for 2018.

Thanks! I've been very involved in the training. That's why my communication here has been very limited. I can't seem to pull myself away from building my first website. It's very exciting!

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! :)

Devara Premium
Yes, coming up with a niche has been very hard for me. I'm interested in fitness, health, and beauty, but narrowing it down to something more specific is difficult. I chose "Muffin Top Fix". The problem is, I don't really know much about it myself. I am just interested in how to get rid of it! LOL As with a lot of mid-40 year old's, weight tends to build in the waist/hip area. Am I on the right track? There's tons of other website content related to the same thing..
Reply
kumar1992 Premium
I think you are on the right track. I am sure that there are many people looking for such information. I would suggest you use the WA keyword tool and see how the traffic and monthly searches fair. Also look for some related keywords to your niche. Try to go for long tail keywords, as they are much less competitive but will help you rank much faster compared to high competition ones.

Look at some products too. I am sure they are tons of products in this niche. For instance, some don't have the time to fix that area and are probably lookong for a quick fix like wearing something over to make that area look more slim for a wedding maybe.

This is just an example. Amazon has thousands of products in this category. Try to look at the best seller and newly arrived and write reviews on them. Focus more on newly arrived because they may not have reviews on them yet and if you publish earlier than others you stand a better chance to rank in the tops pages.

You might also want to consider leveraging on youtube as there is tons of traffic there too!

Hello! I'm so excited. I recently explored AWOL Academy and was very disappointed with all of the hidden costs. They didn't explain everything upfront, instead I paid $99 and had to sit through hours of videos before I found out how expensive it was. I hope this program is different. I'm here because I want to learn all I can about online business/marketing, but I also need an extra income. I can't afford to put a lot of money into it in the very beginning. Thanks for the welcoming message and I look forward to communicating with you soon as I learn about the program.

kumar1992 Premium
Hi Devera, yes I have heard of AWOL before. WA is not like AWOL, there is no hidden costs at all. Besides the WA membership, the only thing you would really need is a domain, which is your website which costs about ~ $13 yearly. I totally agree with where you are coming from. I was very skeptical myself when i first started. I have to say it was the simplest of rides but thankfully i didn't give up. Do get started with the lessons and if you need a hand with anything just drop me a comment here! :)
