About Ebm47
Joined August 2016
Been in marketing and advertising for 30 years. Writing and producing radio and TV commercials as well as print ads over that time. Working with clients of all sizes in helping them expand their business. Thought it was now time to expand my own business as retirement is not that far away. Got into affiliate marketing a little over two years ago Worked with several affiliate "gurus" (hate that word in this business). I have designed some really good niche sites, but evidently not that great as the success with affiliate marketing has not been very successful. Traffic the biggest problem, so I am looking forward to WA helping to put me on the right path to start earning a good affiliate marketing income.

Follow-up to question. I did create a custom link. But it shows my email and password.

I am about to take down my "Under Construction" page an launch my site, but I was checking my hot links that send a potential new member to the WA site and when I clicked them, my email address appears and password on the welcome page of W. rather than being blank.

Am I using the wrong link to put on my website? I grabbed the link from my link and tracking page.

Any help will be appreciated.

Ed, 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 Ed.

Thanks Kyle, moving along pretty well. Your Bootcamp videos have helped.

I have to record my Intro video for the homepage, which is one of six (each covering different aspects of affiliate marketing). The idea of the site is to present information on how to have a better chance to be successful with affiliate marketing and show how to recognize scams.

There will be six total videos with the first on the home page, but to get the rest they will have to sign up and I will email them the other 5, one per day. Each video I hint about different plus's about how important support is, being educated about affiliate marketing, having a community behind them, etc, etc. But I do not mention WA until the sixth video where I will present WA as a place to get all information and training that I have been talking about in the five previous video's. I also have a WA banner on the right side of the page. My biggest problem is always traffic.

Any suggestions on this type of selling would be appreciated.

Thanks
Ed

Yeah, that could work well. One thing you don't want to do is try to education people too much on the outside of WA about things they will be doing within WA, rather focus on getting them in here so they have access to the platform and the tools and services they need to build a business.

I think that your video approach works well though and would have multiple uses as it could truly build out your site as being an authority site.

Hey Ed! Today I just wanted to follow up with you to see how things are going! I hope all is well and you are enjoying yourself here within the Wealthy Affiliate community.

I want to make myself available to answer any questions or help with anything as you are getting started! Please touch base with me if you ever need a hand with anything or are feeling stuck, I am here to help. :)

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! :)

Thank you..... I will be taking you up on your offer. For 2.5 years I have made basically nothing. Hopefully WA and it's community will help change that. My goal is and has been to have a retirement business, as SS will not even come close to what I earn now in my advertising career.

Thanks
Ed

Let's get you turned around and moving in the right direction here Ed. It may require you to unlearn some things that you have learned in the past and that is completely fine. You are going to learn the proper way of building a business online. :)
