I've been in the make money industry since the early 90s. But I was never able to make a full time living with it until about 2008.

Around that time is when I did the math. I was finally making more money part time running my affiliate marketing business than I was full time in Corporate America. So I made the choice to leave.

For 5 years I was a stay at home dad that was able to raise my kids and annoy my wife all the time. That's because she no longer had to work as well. All of this is a direct result of my affiliate marketing business and a lot of help from the big guy above.

Most of the time you can find me chilling at my blog: WorkAtHomeNoScams.com helping people make money from home and responding to their comments. Yes, there are other ways to make money online and I teach folks about them while making them laugh in the process. I also recently started another blog MoreRealReviews.com which is on track to be another great source of income for me. You can never have too many sources of income folks.

That said, I've taken the SEO skills I've learned here in WA and have used them for consulting opportunities and I work as a Director of SEO strategy for a fortune 100 company. So needless to say what the little money I invested to become a premium member of WA has paid for itself many times over in the money I've made on my own blogs and working for other companies. These multiple streams of income have helped me earn in the high six figures every year.

All and all I'm just a regular dude that has been very blessed because I have a positive mindset, positive folks around me, and more importantly I take action. I wasn't born knowing any of this stuff. I learned it by following what WA teaches and taking action until I succeeded.

I do want to end by saying this. You can achieve anything if you have the right mindset, take action and don't give up on yourself. You need a lot of patience as well to see success. But it is totally possible for anyone willing to learn and put in the work. I'm a perfect example of this. My final words to you is don't be afraid to fail forward. You never really fail if you don't give up!

Good morning Eddy. I have a quick question. I wanted to write a blog post about some self reflection I have done this week and how that led me to upgrade to premium membership. It is largely not related to WA, but to the things that drove me to look for an online alternative to my current employment situation. Is that appropriate to put on my WA blog?

Hi Eddy!

I doubt you remember me, but about 7 or 8 yrs ago you and I interacted via your blog. I'm not sure, but at the time I don't think it had anything to do with WA. We chatted about WAH opportunities and due to those few conversations I have worked from home as a contractor, mostly with Working Solutions. It's been a great experience! I've been thinking of joining WA for quite a few years and took the plunge during the Black Friday deal. I haven't been able to get started until today and was so pleased to see your name! I'll be checking out the site and working the steps. Take care and best regards,

Hey Linda,

It's great to hear from you after all these years. I'm happy my efforts helped you with past work at home opportunities. I'm glad you decided to give WA a shot. It's something that has helped changed my life and better than any of the work at home opportunities I've tried in the past. In any event, feel free to private message me directly rather than leaving a message here on the public profile if you want. Just click on the little envelope in the upper right hand corner to message me going forward if you want. Welcome to the WA family.

Hi Eddy, thank you for your link which I really connected with because those were all experiences I have had.

Hi Eddy, am just starting on trying to see how i can make money online and what will be the best for stay at home mom. It's been difficult trying different strategies and no luck. Here I am no credit card and no money to start with but am trying to see what will work for me.
What will work for me to start making money online, I started with Pinterest and I open my website with wordpress.
Thank you

Sorry to hear you haven't had any success making money online. But that's why I referred you to WA. So my recommendation is to focus on the training as I mentioned before: This will help you build a business online. Or you will learn skills that can help you get a job like I did:

Appreciate the comparison but i have a question. I'm brand-new here and can't afford the premium version until i earn some money. Can I earn money without going premium right away? So i can earn the money to buy it. i really want it but money is tight at the moment. Got expensive cancer surgery coming up in 9 days. Please let me know. Thank you so much!!!
Reply
EddySalomon Premium
Hey Kerstin,

I'm sorry to hear about the cancer. I pray for a speedy recovery and full remission for you. I think it's more important to focus on your recovery than trying to start a business at this juncture. Because it will take a lot of time, patience and dedication to see results. And that will be months to a year down the line. So this may not be the right venture to get into right now.
Reply
Thank you for your advice. I'd still like to stay on with my current membership if i'm allowed to. Maybe get a head-start for after my recovery? I was told that recovery for me will only be 2-3 weeks here at home. No chemo or radiation predicted. Caught it in early stage. So if not this, can you recommend something for me? I am NOT a couch-potato. LOL My work is my life now that the kids are gone. Please advise...

Hey Crystal,

Nice to meet you as well. I never imagined I would do this type of business either. But it's been the best decision I've made and has allowed my family and I to experience wonderful things in life. So I'm sure it will do the same for you. Be sure to go through the training, including filling in your profile completely.

You may want to remove your phone number from this message and anywhere else you may have it on this site. It's a public site that can be seen by everyone around the world. All of our communications are done online anyway. So there is no need to share your number. Thanks.

Thank you for referring me to this site. I think I might actually be able to try making money on here. I'm hoping it works out for me.

Hey Patricia,

Everything new is scary at first. But keep in mind all of were new and scared at one point. But that's why WA exists and there is training for you to follow. As long as you follow it and ask questions within the lessons you'll be able to do this. The money will come in time.

Here's some inspiration:

Thanks! I'm doing fine at the moment, in the middle of figuring out what my website is going to be about.

Anyways, just in the middle of figuring out things but I really appreciate the referral.

Hi Eddy, Sandra here, I am doing ok I guess, could be better, could be worse, you know how that goes, sure hoping that this works out before Christmas and as far as I care it could jump over my head and get on down the road but grandkids don't look at it that way, how are you?

EddySalomon Premium
Hey Sandra,

It sounds like you're down in the dumps at the moment. Hopefully things get better for you. So I hope you realize you're learning a new business and that will take months to understand and see results. This isn't a get rich quick scheme or a job where things will happen quickly. So don't look at this to be a big help for Christmas. Maybe next Christmas it will be if you work hard, are patient and apply what your learning. But right now you'll be doing a lot of learning.

Hey Eddy, thank you for checking in. I really related so much with your words about all the other "how to make money online" gimmicks and today alone I can't tell you how many surveys and right at the very end all of a sudden my screen goes blank or my computer freezes up really madning day after day. You were so right on I truly believed you really have been through and suffered what I am now and i just didnt see you leading me down another dead end and I was right. I have made an account and have gone through the walk through tour and I literally started crying (not sobbing) (just really tearieyed) when the tour came to an end because WA is exactly what I need and nobody has asked me for my credit card info yet..you may have saved my life here but I will let you know when we meet in Las Vegas...lol..God Bless You Eddy (with a y)

You're very welcome Barbara. I'm glad my words resonated with you. As you can read I've gone through a lot of the crappy ways to earn money online. So I can totally relate to others who may have the same path I did. But now you're part of the WA family and you'll learn the the skills I learned that helped me break away from these other time wasting make money opportunities. It's going to be a long process and it may be hard sometimes. But you have this whole community to help you through it.

Here's some inspiration for you:

Hi Eddy
Just wanted to drop a note to say how completely disappointed I am with the response from WA these past few days. I sent two emails to Carson letting him know that I wanted to cancel my membership and I have not received a response from him yet. In the mean time I have been charged for another month. When I requested help from you all I got was a link. On that cancel page there is a lengthy letter about how much WA wants to help me with any problems I may have. From the responses I have received these past few days from WA I would say that letter is garbage. I actually debating whether canceling was what I really wanted but now I am convinced. Actions speak louder than words.
Reply
EddySalomon Premium
Uh Patricia,
You asked how to cancel and I literally provided you a link that walked you how to do it. I don't know what else you were expecting. It's pretty easy to do and you're in full control of it.

Kyle and Carson receive hundreds of emails per day and it takes them time to respond. That said when it comes to things like cancelling, that can be done by a member at any point. You don't need to wait for a response from them to do this. They don't hold members hostage and it's why you can control your membership from your account settings like that link I sent you shows you.

When people need help there are tons of ways to get it which I've laid out here: I'm sorry you didn't find value in WA. You were only a member for a month and that's not really enough time to build an online business and understand all the training provided here. But this business and community isn't for everyone. And you have decided it's not for you and that's fine. Hopefully you find what is best for you. But the help was provided.

Hi Eddy with a y :D It's nice to meet you! I know I haven't been able to be online for a couple days, but I am not forgetting. It's been very busy, with therapy, my mom having a few days off so we have been working on research and therapy options for my brother and myself, and taking care of the house is very hard for me, taking a lot longer than normal, but still has to be done. It will take me longer to get this rolling, just because of my situation, but I WILL get it rolling. Just be patient with me. Once we have some extra money coming in, I plan to upgrade to premium, but for now have to go with the free.

I will stay in touch with you. Thank you so much for the warm welcome!!! :)

I would like some suggestion on what my message is all about and if am doing the right thing. Can you help . Am going step by step .

Hey Anthea,

First and foremost, you're a premium member now so you can private message directly rather than leaving me a public message here. You can private message me by clicking on the little envelope in the upper right hand corner of this website.

In terms of your first post, the reality is that your first couple of posts won't be your best and that's fine. You're new and learning a new skill. When I look back at my first couple of posts, I would cringe. But what i realized was it was more important to get as many posts out there as possible so Google would start trusting my site and sending me traffic. Over time, my posts got better and better. But I had to get over the fear of what people would think or making it perfect. Your audience is millions of people, and they're going to visit your site at different times as you get better.

So don't worry about what people will think or making it perfect. It won't be and it doesn't matter. Because you're going to get better with practice.

That said to help you get better sooner, your posts should be following what Jay laid out here: If you're applying most of what he has there, then you're doing great. So I would recommend you go through that stuff first and then adjust your post to ensure it meets what he laid out there. Then just publish it. And if you want me to see it after you've done that, you can private message me.

Just because you publish an article doesn't mean you'll automatically have tons of people seeing it. So even if you have to edit it while it's live is fine. I edit live posts all the time. It doesn't matter because new eyeballs will see it. So keep that in mind. Private message me to continue this conversation once you've done what I suggested. I hope it helps.

Hi Eddie

I have been spending some time reading members chats and it seems there are quite a few members who are not getting good results from their websites. They are setting those websites down and starting over with the WA Affiliate program. I had thought about doing that first because my website for my niche is broad and writing for it will take me a while. What kind of content do you write for the WA Affliate website.
Reply
EddySalomon Premium
Hi Patricia,

First and foremost, just because others aren't seeing success yet, doesn't mean this doesn't work and you need to change directions. There are tons of success stories: So if you need inspiration read that stuff.

I have noticed the people that aren't seeing success are either impatient, picked a bad niche or didn't apply the following steps to their articles: So before you decide to default to WA as your niche, I would recommend you read the items above. If you still feel you want to change niches, then you could go through the affiliate bootcamp.

But I think once you read the items above, you'll have a different perspective. And by the way you can private message me directly using the little envelope in the upper right hand corner of this page.

We can continue the conversation via private message if you want.

HI Eddy. Haven't been able to verify that I activated the SEO and EWWW plugins. Don't know what I am doing incorrectly. You know the lesson instructions, one of them is to CHECK OFF both of the above mentioned plugins. I've gone to Dashboard and Plugins on the side menu and when I finish the process I get a message stating "You have the latest version of wordpress".
Hope you can help.
I know you advised us to keep the messages short when we ask for help, heck, I try not to ask for help when I get stuck so, its taken me 30 days to get to this lesson, I think its been 3 days since I tried to start this lesson.
I read your message about my 30 days, with Wealthy Affiliate. Thank you I haven't been able to spend two hours a day on wealth affiliate as I said I would.

Hey Wendy,

So WA is laid out with step by step training. So things like the technical aspects, making money, etc and a lot of the other questions you have are covered in lessons. So that's why it's important you go through the training step by step rather than bouncing around: Many times the questions folks have are covered in later lessons but it's not important to consider until other foundational things are covered. So keep that in mind.

Hey Eddy, I have a quick question. As I am going through the training I am wondering if before I buy a domain if I should make a site which is more niche specific rather than broad, and general. My original website on siterubix,com is entitled ez pet care. I have noticed that all of my article ideas stem from the tips,and problems associated with raising puppies in an apartment. I am now thinking something along the lines of apartment puppies.com might work better. Am I being too specific? What are your thoughts?
Reply
EddySalomon Premium
Hey Mary,

The training teaches you should be more specific in your niche selection. Too often people will go to broad like Pets is my niche. But your niche is about raising dogs in an apartment and there are many challenges to do that.

So I think you'll be able to make this a great niche because you can discuss various products for pets living in apartments, services for pet owners like rover, dog care, etc. So I think it can work. Come up with a few domain names and private message me directly with your ideas.

You want your domain to be related to this specific niche but open enough that it gives you room to grow larger. So try to keep it pet generic enough in that respect. But feel for free to private message me by clicking the envelope in the upper right hand corner of the screen.

Eddy, Again thank you for directing me here. Just letting you know that I feel like I get side-tracked with people's comments, although I do appreciate them. Also I don't know if I am doing everything that I am learning so I will regroup and ask the necessary questions.
As far as a niche goes....I would like to exploring "fermentation" and how it applies to a better internal and external environments. I tried to use the tools to find a niche. Not so sure how they work and what to do with the information they are giving me. In other words. How do I know it is a good niche? I get the concept that when you find a good niche then to get a topics list to keep you supplied with direction.
Also I need a larger screen to work off of maybe that is why I am not seeing all the details I really want to move forward and get money coming in in order to be able to quit my job.
I know picking the right niche would be good. Do you want to let me know if my topic is good. I did change topics because even though I am interested in dulcimer....I don't think that there would be enough topics and material avilable keep me writing. I do believe fermentation would and could be expanded upon. Do I have to pick an audience to narrow it down, or what do I do next?
I also need to change the website to reflect my new topic. The first one I started when I was free status. Do I start from scratch with a new one? I am not good at navigating and editing yet so I need to know which direction to go.
I also noticed that there are different trainings out there. Again, my focus should be on the basics first I am assuming.
What are your comments on my rambling thoughts and concerns?
Reply
EddySalomon Premium
Debra,

So are you walking through the training step by step or bouncing around?
I think some of your confusion and lack of clarity may be because you aren't following the lessons step by step here: Stay focused on that as I think it will help you.

If you have any other questions, just private message me directly by clicking on the little envelope in the upper right hand corner.

And finally I want you to read my help article here: It will give you tips on how to approach the community for help in a more concise way. It's really hard to address your random thoughts. So follow what's laid out in the help article and I think it will better help you get assistance from folks like me and the community.

Hey Eddy I was with six figure mentors and I ease my satisfied. I came across a review you did of them about 3 years ago and you hit the nail on the head so thank you for doing a good job of confirming my thoughts. I hope that this is the right program for me to learn how to be a successful affiliate marketer without spending more than a few dollars, especially into someone else’s company for selling their products.

This is all mind boggling. I had to use a new password at yahoo to get into this training, will I need to go back to my yahoo home page and use the user name and password I used to to gain access to WA? As you might guess I I do not type fast and can't spell well, this might hinder my progress in this program. Thank you checking on me. I don't think I need community help if you answer my question about the new user name and pass word I used. Perhaps I need to open another yahoo acct. So, I will click No on the bottom of this page.

Hey Andrew,

I have no idea why you would need to have to get a new password for yahoo. That shouldn't have anything to do with WA. So I'm not sure what to tell you about that. Most people are able to sign up for the WA website with no issues or having to mess around with the passwords of their own email accounts.

I don't really have experience in ecommerce. My advice is to just focus on what WA is teaching and following the training.

Hi Eddy,
I recently created a post almost 800 words. While typing on the same post, another post was created. I deleted it. Then the original post was also deleted.
In April I had a medical procedure on my back, and sitting is a problem for me. It took me 2 weeks to create that post. Losing it is almost traumatic. I can hardly remember what I wrote and the medications don't help.
I tried the site to get some help. The closest I came to a solution is someone saying there is a trash bin on the Dashboard. I did not find it.
Please help!

This can hold me about a month.

1. You should talk to a tax professional not a WA member because everyone tax situation is different. For my I have corporation and I have deductions that my accountants against my business income. I don't know how it works for your situation or country. So you should talk to an accountant.

2. Uh did you follow the training? It teaches you that you're writing content to be found in Google and how to get indexed. So clearly you're missing the training or skimming through it because all that is covered.

Hi Eddy. I read your testimony about being a Premium member. Very inspirational! Since you are ranked #10, you obviously know alot about how this is done! I'm a complete affiliate newbie, and I wonder if I can run this niche idea by you? (Thanks in advance.)

So, I’m fascinated with the location independent lifestyle. I have background in and a great love of homeschooling. Most homeschool families struggle financially and certainly cannot travel very much. So, what might my niche be that incorporates producing money independent of your location and that can help homeschool families become Worldschool families instead?

The question is rather simple really. I am a Premium member, and am 61. I am at an age where I do not always have time or the energy to work on building websites of which I have access to 50 being a Premium member. Is it ok if I get someone to help me out with creating the websites, even if I let them put some of their own content on a couple of them ?
Thanks in advance for your reply Eddy.
Reply
EddySalomon Premium
Ed,

Kyle and Carson get a lot of messages on a daily basis. So you need to give them a few days to respond. And there are other ways to get help here: So a couple of things. Just because WA gives you access to create 50 websites doesn't mean you actually need to create 50 sites.

You should focus on one. You don't need to do anymore than that.

Yes you can outsource having someone create content for your website if you have the money to do that. And if you trust that the person is trained properly in internet marketing and understands the concepts you're being taught here. You would have to find someone, and interview them to ensure they know what the hell they're doing. Then you have to check on their work and give them access to your site if you want this to be hands off.

If someone is putting their own content on your site you want to make sure that the content they're putting isn't being place on their site or anywhere else. Otherwise it won't benefit you from an seo standpoint. I hope this answers your question. If you have anymore feel free to private message me directly using the little envelope in the upper right hand corner of the screen. That's the best way to reach members rather than posting here in the profile.

Thanks Amy. My advice is not to put a time limit on your success. People are willing to work the rest of their lives working for someone else and make them rich. But we want to put time limits on working for ourselves and making our own dreams come true. So my advice is you work on this until you achieve what you want. That's what I did. If I would have put some stupid deadline, I would have given up and missed out on the wonderful life my business has afforded my family and I.

Hi Eddy and thank you so much for responding. I read your post, "How long will it take me to be successful" and I do understand what you are saying, totally. I am guilty of being impatient and desperate.

I understand that it has to happen when it happens, and I get that concept. But what I keep obsessing about is this:

I feel like I need a plan in place specific to my own situation. In other words, what is happening with my site now, and what I need to do to bring it up to the next level, etc.
First do this, then do that, and then do that.

I need to make sure that I am working on what needs to be worked on because I have 46 posts and my site hasn't ranked so there has to be an issue why. I've been at this on and off for about a year, and have made $7.00.

So, in order to reach my goals, I feel like I need to have a basic plan in place to make sure I am going in the right direction. I could blindly be working on my site and maybe it will never rank because I am doing something wrong that I don't know about.
Know what I mean?

That's why I joined WA. Looking forward to making progress to achieve my goal. Hope I can ask you for much needed advice along the way. Thanks.

For the past 26 years I have worked as a Team Sales Rep selling athletic equipment to schools and youth groups. I am constantly asked about ideas for fundraising and with the cost going up it is imperative that these groups fund raise. I have numerous contacts within this group. My idea has 2 phases and the first is to create a discount card with local merchants within the community offering discounts to the people that purchase the card. The card will sell for 20.00 dollars with the group getting at least 50%. The second phase is the best part, on the card will be access and a code to the groups personal website that will pay them a commission for the year on purchases made from different companies they shop with. I have an IT guy building the site now I just need more direction on dealing with the different Affiliate programs.

Hi Eddy, I was just reading your blog. It's great to see a success story on here that's got some truth to it instead of all that get rich fast hype. Im just interested in making a decent living for myself and someday become financially secure. Currently Im disabled and nothing but time on my hands. I've been looking for ways to make money. My accident occurred at work January 15th of this year and the walls are already closing in on me. I'm very interested in this opportunity being this is my second time with WA. I just didn't have the time last year to put into it but now I have nothing but time. I'll have my eyes on your success and someday be where you are. Thanks for your positive input.

Hello Eddy...it's good to meet you! Your profile is rather impressive and quite motivating to say the least. Eddy, my challenge is really my limited computer skills which now are merely basic, but I make do with them.
I would ask you if you would be willing to be a mentor to me as I am not pleased at this point of my online training. I would most certainly appreciate you networking with me on some specific matters as they come up. I of course engage with he Community chat as well, but some matters require more personal and direct engagement with a tried and true professional like you.
I would be most grateful hearing from you in this regard.

As you can predict i am in little bad financial situation at this moment so i just want to ask you do the links really work? I am from Macedonia i don't know if that was the problem because i have tried vivantic .com but there were no surveys. You know if i can make even 5$ per day it would be very helpful.

Hey Martino,

I cover a lot of things on my blog. Anything I personally recommend does work. But it may not be available in your country or right for you. I would recommend focusing on what you're learning here. There is no such thing as fast money. Everything will require time and effort to see results.

When I run into people that are in immediate financial need, I always recommend getting a job first. Then working on things like this on the side until you can get them to a point where they can help you.
Reply
Hey Eddy,

I checked many of the links and all of them were for US and UK citizens so if there are some surveys that work in my region if by chance you end up seeing some send it to me if possible.

Yes that is exactly why i thought that surveys will come handy at this time until i can start generating money from WA.

Anyway thank you for your advice and time :)

Hi Sipho,

The first thing you need to know is there is no rushing this process or making money online. Going through the training swiftly won't make you money any faster. This will all take time to build a successful business online. So expect to be at this for months before seeing any results. It's a real business not a get rich scheme.

Although at least I do feel like I am doing some good with my job as I help other veterans and there is no greater feeling. But then again, I can always help them start their own work from home business via WA! :)

I hope to get to know you better and maybe you can give me some pointers on how you got where you are! I'm all ears for whatever advice you can give. If you are open to ever helping me with anything one on one, I would love that as I am so new to all this and while I am learning so much from the training, there are just days were I am like "UGH"! Everyone here is so great to answer questions, but it would be nice if I could have a mentor to go to on occasion as more one on one.

Hope you have a great new year and here is to much success here at WA!

Wow!! Your story is truly inspiring!! I have been at the make money online thing since 2014 and I'm not stopping until I have the freedom I desire where I can tell my wife she doesn't have to work anymore.

I think a lot of people miss the part about not quitting. It takes a while to learn the skills you need in order to be successful. Not to mention all the opportunities that you can be distracted by.

Seeing that you started in the early 90s and didn't make a full time living until 2008 spoke volumes to me. Reading your story gave me even more fuel to keep at it!! Thanks for sharing!!

Indeed Byron. The not quitting part is key. But too many people give up on this when they don’t see results right away. So long term delayed gratification is important.

Hi, Eddy,

Thanks for the inspiring intro to yourself, Eddy. For those members just getting started, it can be hard to see the forest for the trees. There is so much on WA, it can be overwhelming, but I've realized that sticking to the step-by-step training is certainly the best course of action for us newbies. I do, however, give myself time once in a awhile to just explore and skip around WA, including skipping through some lessons just to get an idea of what's forthcoming. I then go back and complete all tasks.

I think one of the biggest differences or focus of WA on online marketing is content. Most other programs or trainings I've been through (or watched a webinar or few about) either put more emphasis on paid advertising, squeeze pages, email lists and mailings, with little discussion on Google rankings. The WA approach does make a ton of sense. The only drawback for me (a very impatient person who wants to know and do everything at once and NOW) is it is obviously going to take longer to develop the business before I can really start earning some decent income from it. I anticipate once that happens, the biz will continue to grow exponentially. So, I'm plodding away as patiently as my personality allows me. Thanks for being an ambassador, for the WA Training Cheatsheet, and all your other trainings and things that you do for us on WA.

Ninah,

I couldn't agree with you more about your assessment of WA's focus. You need a lot of delayed gratification to make this business work the way WA teaches. But I have found that what WA teaches lasts the test of time vs some of the other methods which can change so quickly.

I've been following it for 10 years and it still works very well. So that says a lot in my eyes.

Toby,

Read this: Ultimately, this is a business. You will succeed or fail. That is the reality. There are no guarantees, that's why it's called a business not a job. Millions of people invest in a college education with no guarantee that they will get a job after graduating. But yet so many people feel it's worth the investment in themselves, even if they won't see the rewards in this for a few years. You need to have a long term mentality about this to succeed. If you're looking for immediate results or a definite time frame, then this isn't for you. It may not be what you want to hear. But that's the reality of starting a business and making that investment in one.

Hey Eddy,

I just wanted to run my niche idea by you.

My idea is reporting important events that the United States government would have interest in that happen in Africa. This is my area of study and expertise and I research report on all the different countries in Africa every day. No my reports are mostly in my own word, but I find my information through online resources such as news sites and other blogs and local new agencies in the countries. I write about one-two sentences explaining the main idea of the event or article that related to national security, then I have anywhere from two-five bullet points further explaining, giving facts and statistics. However, every Friday, and maybe more frequently as time moves on, I publish an analysis piece based on some developing story, event or ongoing relations between countries, giving the why and how and who to all the questions regarding the event. Is this a good Idea? I guess my main question is, would this limit my rank on google if I somewhat summarize the stories already publish on other sites?

Also, my main goal is to provide a simplified version of news in Africa so people can quickly scroll to the country they want to learn about and find out quickly, by reading the short summary, if they are interested in learning more, provided the link to the original article. I also give credit to the actual writer, publisher and website it was originated from.

Thanks for the help!

First of all I'm a freelance artist with several yrs. experience and anything art/crafts related I'm fully interested in so I would love to base my site off that but I have no idea what to call it or how to create something that stands out or that hasn't been done already several times over and even better

And just to give other ideas, I also have a interest in video games, movies, tv series, comics, Star Wars, the unknown/mysteries, National Geographic, history, mythology, fantasy, anything retro toys/cartoons/movies, and wrestling

And I'll add I have a deep passion and heart for disabled military veterans/service members, homeless, children hospitals, cancer patients, charity/fundraisers

Hope that gives a clear idea of my aim and you could help me
Thanks Glenn

Keep those type of pages coming my way. I loved that Cheat Sheet. I still have several more links from that left to read. Thanks.
I hope you don't mind all my questions. If I am bothering you, please let me know. I am getting a handle on this and should leave you alone before long. LOL
I want to ask you about keywords.
I did the alphabet soup trick with Google and found some low-hanging fruit. I think. I found: BBQ ideas for vegetarians. While I ran that thru Jaaxy I found: Healthy dinner ideas for vegetarians.
Question - can I use one page to kill two keywords?
Another example: BBQ recipes for camping--and--good recipes for camping.

As I write this question to you, I think it is coming to me...write two pages due to the need for content....Duh. Your thoughts?

I love this site and what I am doing. I am lost but learning to find my way. I really like this.
I am gaining an understanding of what I am supposed to be doing. Do you currently have more than one web page or do you stick with the one and perfect it?

EddySalomon Premium
In terms of being lost, I recently wrote something that should help you through that. So read the following before doing anything else: It seems to have cleared up a lot for newbies like yourself.

I have a few websites. But my main one is the one that brought you here which is www.WorkAtHomeNoScams.com I only started experimenting with other sites now because I'm pretty established with my current site in terms of writing new content regularly, making money and ranking in google. So now I'm able to try another site which has been doing pretty well. But I always tell newbies master one first then you can think about another later on.

In any event, let me know if that article helped you.

You know, it is when I read your text on people selling everything possible that I knew, you are the right Person to trust.
So good boy!
What I know so far is, I am not the seller type. I do want to be of service to people, recommending what I know I could do so for my own Family and of course if otherwise it helps me also financially, I will be glad.
I am not going to upgrade for the moment, because my reality is, I have to earn the money before I can spend it! But as soon as I see how it works on the long term I will upgrade. So I hope you have as much patience as I do have.
Sincerely.

Yeah, I'm not a sales person either. I just provide people with good information via my blog posts, make recommendations I believe in. And folks sign up, then that's great. If not, I still helped people and they'll remember that. In terms of going premium and when you do it, that's totally up to you. Most people do it because they see it as a long term investment in themselves. Where they invest now and will see the fruits of that later. It's the same reasons people will pay for college now with the hopes it will pay off many times over when they get out for years to come. It's the same concept, but a fraction of the cost. But not everyone sees it like that or can afford to make that premium investment initially so I totally get it. At the end of the day you're in control and have to do what's best for you. I discuss why people shouldn't go premium here:

HI Eddy.
Do you think you could give me some tips on getting pictures. I am concerned about copyright issues. I noticed with Wikimedia when I was downloading pictures it told me that I needed to provide credit to the author or something. What would be the best way to give credit? Can your website be taken down for copyrighted pictures?

I use pixabay.com for pictures. You're allowed to use them on your site without attribution. You can also do a search above and you'll find tons of information about getting free pictures. Here's one: I hope this helps.

Hey Ed,
I know I am somewhat late as I only became a member today, however I am familiar with the freelance world and if my assistance were to be required at some point I`d be more then happy to help while using the WA platform. Im a college student so I have time on my hands, lets get in touch!

So the best I can figure is that I am not entitled to the additional training without paying, correct? the first series of training basically shows you how to do a web site, which I have a degree in, therefore, I don't need help putting together a web site. I still do not completely understand how you make money just from having a web site. (I have had one for years and have not made money at it-I do not have ads on my site). I have yet been giving information that encourages me to spend money to make money. If ads are the only way, then it is definitely not worth spending the money. I can see where the information provide would be useful to people with NO web experience, but you have not convinced me to spend the money.

If I am missing something, please let me know. I have spent many hours listening and reading your "training" and at this point, feel like I have wasted my time.

Hi Robin,

Yes if you want more training and support you need to upgrade to premium. I don't know if you completed the starter training but the make money part was explained in the second lesson: But as the training mentioned you're making money by writing content and adding affiliate links to your content. The premium lessons go into more details about the making money here: The starter membership is only meant to give you an overview of this business. Then it's up to you to run with it on your own if you don't want to invest in the premium. Some members are able to do this and make money. So just do whatever is comfortable for you.

I'm new to finding out how and where to build a website I do believe if you are already a website holder and have not made money you're not going about it the right way. I mean no disrespect so please don't be offended. Have you tried Google Adsense? They allow you to place their ads on your website and pay per click so no one HAS to buy anything in order for you to get paid. I'm not going to pay for premium just yet but maybe in the near future.

EddySalomon Premium
Tracy, I'm confused by your comment. I obviously have websites that are making money.
Reply
I'm sorry I don't know how but I responded to someone else or at least that was the intent. Someone made a comment that they weren't making money and couldn't understand where people were getting ads and links I'm so sorry I don't even think it was this thread I must have had two threads open on my phone and accidentally dropped it here. Again I'm sorry thankfully that was my first mistake now it's out of the way haha.......

Hey Eddy, I need advice...I have sewn for many years, I focus more on totes/purses, I'm also a independent Younique presenter (skincare and cosmetics) . I guess my question would be how could I combine the two or is there a way to have 2 differant websites since I have 2 niches..any advice on either one would be appreciated..thanks

Hi Kimberly,

You should have two different sites. They're totally different niches. That said focus on one niche first. Get the hang of this business then consider creating another site. If you have any more questions, just reply to the comments I left in your profile. That's the best way to reach me about your specific needs.

Brenda, this may not be for you if you watched the videos and read the training and you're still totally confused. Did you follow the tips I laid out here: I don't offer phone calls. All the support is done online. And please keep in mind this business isn't going to resolve your financial issues quickly. It can takes months and up to a year to see any results. So if your needs are pressing this might not be for you.

Hello Eddy with a y. I have completed first task on the starter program. I watched the Get Started Video. I have a question, If I cannot afford to go premium after my 7 day trial end, in the starter program, is it possible to make money, if you are a fast learner? and can I use that money, I make from the starter program of having access to 2 free website to pay the premium with the money I make?

Hi Roslyn,

Read the following: which may help you.

I've heard that some people are able to make money just using the basic starter training but it's not common since most people need the additional training and support that premium provides.

It's not really about being a fast learner, it's about being able to apply what you learn then it can take months for Google to trust your site enough to rank it and thus eventually make money. So it's a long term focus. This is a business so there isn't any speeding it up. It's going to take time to see the fruits of your labor. So you have to view this as a marathon not sprint to make this work.

Feel free to reply to me at your profile: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/roslynj41 where I left you messages. That's the best place to discuss your questions and situation.

Thanks

Thanks again Eddy. I have read Can't afford the premium membership at WA as well Top 3 reasons you shouldn't go premium. The article had some valid points, One of them is to downsized cable. I have downsized cable in fact I haven't had cable for three years. I have downsized on various of things, and I cannot sell anything else, my apartment is almost empty, as well I have a child take care of. Money does not knock on my door steps. That is why I asked the question. I found this affiliate program to be very interesting above the ones I've researched. I was asking, in options on what I can do to afford the program. Considering in reference to the articles you sent me, does not really apply to me. Is there another way, and considering 7 days is all that is provided, and considering it does take time to build a business, why not give people more than 7 days to build the foundation to get to the premium. Technically like any business, you have to pay rent for it, and time is given for business owners who start out to pay the rent.

Hey Roslyn,

I don't make the policies for WA. The starter membership is really just to give people a taste of what this business entails. Like I said some people are able to run with that basic starter information and figure out everything on their own over time. I can't speak to that since I've always been premium. The article I sent you about affording premiu covered more than just cutting down bills or selling stuff. I also mentioned mturk as a way to help. But ultimately as I mentioned in the other article if you're not in a position to afford the premium, that's fine. Maybe it's something you explore later when you can. Or just try to run with the starter information as others have done. You have to do what's best for your situation and it sounds like going premium isn't in the cards right now and that's fine. Try to work with what you learned in the starter.

Hi Sandra,

It's actually Eddy with a y like it's spelled right near my name.
I don't have any get rich quick schemes I can provide you. Anything that is going to make you real money online takes time. Be very mindful you don't fall for the garbage out there that claims otherwise. I've seen a lot of folks in desperate situations fall for it and end up getting scammed or losing money.

There is no short cuts to making money online. I'm sorry I can't give you any other advice. I always tell people in situations like yours, there best bet is to try to land an offline job as they work on building their business. Because jobs are the only thing i know can give you money in a short period of time.

Okay, sooooo, Im currently doing everything by means of my cellphone. Its worked out fine so far HOWEVER I was just about to activate and update my plugins and got wondering if, by updating to whatever version they gave me, it would fry my phone.
Also, if I did end up updating to the new version, what would happen if I got a computer? Would I have to go through the whole process again on my computer? I feel silly for asking, like Im just creating cinerios, but I dont know how one technology differes from another, other than that they all have different addresses.

Someone help me. Lol

Ok you definitely need to work on your business using a real computer. So that's the first thing. It will become more difficult to manage using a smart phone. Updating and adding plugins will not do anything to your phone. It's not like your installing apps to your phone. You're updating your site and it's server not the devices you're using to access your site. The same applies if you were making these updates via a computer. If you have anymore questions just reply to any of the messages I left on your profile page here:
