About Eartha
Joined June 2016
Hey there!

My name is Eartha. I have a background in web and my previous job involved creating WordPress websites for attorneys.

It was drudgery and I wanted to escape the cubicle life badly. Well, it happened in the form of a job layoff.

Needless to say, I am happy to be out of the cube and I want to stay out of it for good!

I have been doing affiliate marketing off and on for years. It wasn't until the job layoff that I decided to take it seriously.

I began searching for a legitimate training resource and found Wealthy Affiliate. I became a free starter member and became a premium member the very next day.

During this time, I was still searching for employment and purposely applied for a retail job so that I would have the flexibility to follow the training and build my business.

I worked on my website before work, after, and on my days off. It was a lot of hard work and I became frustrated at times but I promised myself that I wouldn't give up.

Thankfully I didn't give up! Now I work full-time on my online business and I owe it to what I've learned here.

My advice for anyone new to Wealthy Affiliate:

1. Follow the training
2. Ask questions
3. Stay consistent
4. Don't give up!

I wish you much success in your online business!

Hi Eartha. Currently I'm on the second part of level 2 in the training and I'm stuck. My niche is Japanese pop culture (anime, manga, video games, Hello Kitty, etc.) and I'm not sure where to start on what my topic should be for my first article. I get that my blog should fulfill a need for my audience, but I don't know how to do that. I did put in my About Me page that I wanted to help people save money, but I'm not sure where to start with that.

Hi Melissa,

I would do some keyword research using the alphabet soup technique: This will give you a good idea of what people are seeking information on within your niche. I use this technique often for creating a list of article titles for my niche.

Let me know if that helps or if you have more questions.

Hello Eartha,
I need your advice and It seems to me that you are very responsive here. I red your website articles and I understood that affiliate with aliplagin/ alistore is better than with shoppify. I need your opinion if I will buy alistore for 299USD because I need at least some money to pay my current expenses. And here on WA I just started so I cannot earn something before 6 mo.
You see for me even 299 right now is very big amount because in Canadian dollars it's about 350 to me. But I could take small credit for 20% if the store from aliexpress will work.
I understood from your article that alistore will safe my time because with aliplagin I have to have a website which I don't have.
Please could you help me to determinate my choice. I'm lost already what is better to buy that will works fast even a small commission for now to cover the interest of my credit. I wish to avoid bad history of my credit.
I have 3 accounts on instagram and 5 business pages on FB where I could put affiliate links. Or make a trafic to webstore(if you advice me to choose alistore instead aliplagin)
What do you think please?
Thank you in advance to enter in my problem.

Hi Lara,

One thing to keep in mind with owning a dropshipping store is that it will still require a marketing budget.

Many dropshipping store owners advertise their stores using Facebook ads or Instagram.

It is not a matter of which method will earn money faster (affiliate marketing versus dropshipping) as both will depend on how much effort you put in.

However, I do feel that dropshipping can be more expensive to maintain, especially in the beginning stages, as you will have to pay for advertising to promote the products in your store.

Affiliate marketing is a slower process but your website will be generating free traffic which leads to more people possibly clicking on your affiliate links and making a purchase.

I hope this has helped to answer your questions. Let me know if you need anything else.

Eartha, 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 Eartha.
