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!

Hello Eddy, I hope you get to see this, but I'm looking on getting into consumer tech, most particularly consumer tech designed for babies, kids, parents, pets, etc. Family oriented and Seasonal. because It seems as though I can easily make content within those fields.

Please let me know if that's a good choice, I'm happy to hear any feedback!

Hey Samudra,

Technology is a very tough niche to get into because of the power players in it. But consider the following.

So as a new site your niche should be very specific but your domain or site name would be something broad so it gives you room to expand.

Let's say I want my niche to be about pets. Pets are great because people have a passion for them and they also have problems that folks want to solve. So your site name may be something like ILovePets.com. It's broad enough that if people see it in the google search results they will trust it will be about a pet topic they may be searching for. But since our new site won't be able to compete with big sites like petsmart.com for broad general terms like dog leashes, or how to train your dog. We need to niche down our pet topic. So the initial content you would write about might be "anti-bark collars" which is a smaller specific niche topic in the overall pet niche.

Some content ideas might be:

1. Reviews on a specific anti-bark collar model 1, another review on anti-bark collar model b, etc
2. Best of ant-bark collar for small dogs, Best of anti-bark collar for under $50, etc.
3. Anti-bark collar model 1 vs anti-bark collar model 2, etc.

And you can literally do these articles for years to come because that niche has tons of products.

Then you may want to move into automatic pet feeders and follow the same content plan.

The other thing to keep in mind is your niche topic should have buyer intent. If this niche doesn't cause people to search google for solutions, products, etc that they're willing to pay for, it's not worth pursuing if you actually want to make money. So that's something else to keep in mind that people forget. You're in this to make money.

You can write some generic informational articles as well. But if you want to actually make money, you need to also write the type of articles I mentioned above and make it part of your content strategy. You can learn more about writing content that will get traffic and make you money here: So that's how you approach your niche selection. It should be very narrow that you're not competing with the bigger sites like amazon.com or a big brand which won't happen because you're new. But your domain/website name should be broad enough that allows you to cover other narrow topics within your niche like the examples I gave above.

I hope this makes sense. I discuss more niche concepts here: This should help you as well. Let me know.

Thank you so much Eddy, actually that's one of the reasons why I wanted to do consumer electronics but in the way that you mentioned, ones that solves an issue or problem. So I wouldn't be interested in selling drones, or tv or headphones; but I am interested in something like an interactive bone for dogs to use when their owners aren't home; so kinda like your idea of automatic feeders or baby monitors, etc.

But I did aim to make the website to be an almost general niche, under the umbrella of consumer tech; but then it would niche into pet tech, baby tech, and parental tech such as monitoring or lightweight security and so on.
Reply
EddySalomon Premium
You're welcome. I'm glad it helped. As I mentioned above your domain can be a general consumer tech name. But initially your content must be hyper focused to a sub niche until google starts to trust you in that one. Then you can expand to others.

Hi, how r u?

Ok, I really need to know if having multiple niches on one website is bad. For example, having just a blog website but on pages added is for a different niche. That means the visitor can explore different topics and products as they visit different pages within the website.

Or do I have to have a separate domain and website for each niche.

EddySalomon Premium
Hey Wanda,

You shouldn’t have multiple niches in one site for the most part.

As a newbie trying to get Google to trust you as an authority you need to focus on one niche.

But within the niche you can cover various topics.

My niche may be Pets.

But I narrow down my article topics to Pet feeding devices, Pet cleaning devices, Pet monitoring devices. Etc.

Google will soon understand that you’re an authority in pets. But you can’t sit there and start talking about cars, sneakers, etc. It needs to be hyper focused.

You can build out other niche sites later. But as I mentioned to you before don’t do that until you master one niche. You gotta stay focused and don’t stray from the training which makes it clear you shouldn’t do multiple niches on one site.

If you have more questions private message me directly by clicking on the little envelope in the upper right hand corner of the page.

Hi Eddy, I found your review about another company by chance yesterday, read it and landed here. You seemed very honest and like you knew what you were talking about, so I just unsubscribed from the other company. My question for you is how realistic is it for a single mom of college-aged kids who is not very tech savvy to do make decent money doing this? How much time and money id needed and can you recommend a good mentor to help me get started. I'm not even sure where or how to get started. Thanks in advance for your advice.

Hey Beryl,

So a couple of things.

1. You didn't land on the review by accident. It's because I applied what WA teaches here. So you're proof that it works.

2. Anyone can make money doing this. None of us were born knowing how to do this. Just like you weren't born knowing how to use the internet but here you are online. We all went through the training, and asked help from the community when we were having problems. But anyone can learn this if you're committed to it and follow the training.

3. In terms of time, that's up to you. Some people spend a few hours a day or a few hours a week. At the end of the day it's your business. So you choose how many hours you put into it. Obviously the more you can do, the better to get you up to speed.

In terms of money, you can invest in yourself by going premium, the cost is explained here: Why it costs what it does is explained here: How to afford it if that's an issue, is explained here: 4. I'm your guide here. But you also have the whole community. So you're not going to be left alone. The training you'll follow here: was created by two people who have made millions of dollars with this business. So you're getting the best teachers in them. But they are tons of other members like myself you'll have access to. There are various ways to get help: But you also have to do your part and actually go through the training and follow it. The help provided by myself and others won't be useful if you're not actually doing the training first.

So go through the information I've listed above and it should help address some of these questions you have. Once you've gone through them, you can contact me again if you still have questions that weren't addressed in the articles I listed above.

Hello EddySalomon!

Please, I need your advice on what to do. I just register to Amazon Associate, and to complete my personal information of my payment account, I was asked to provide My Tax ID number.

But in my country, such number issued those who have Inland virtual business center or enterprise/company. I don't have any of course.

So I need your suggestion, if there is a way forward to handle this. I really love to work with amazon affiliate program. Thanks

HI Eddy,

I created my web site "Everything Dog Agility" and I am thinking about changing the name already. I think if someone searched on the web they are more likely to look u p Agility or dog first. I haven't looked too much into the keywords options, yet. What do you think?

Hello. I have a question and I'm not sure where to ask so I'm asking you. I have already asked in the live chat and what I thought was site support but just went to the questions area and I was told to contact site support. So, my question is when I go to my email through the site manager area I can read all the emails that come to me but I cannot send an email from there. Is there something wrong with the system or is there something I am doing wrong?

My Boss good day,

Please I'm a little concerned about the niche I picked. Your comment was it's a very competitive. Please which niche is less competitive and has affiliate program I can use? Don't want to focus on something that will take forever before I achieve any success.

Thanks

Hey I’m not your boss.
You are your own boss. That’s what wa is teaching you. So keep that in mind.
All niches are going to be competitive and all will take up to a year to see results. If you’re not ready to deal with competition and working unpaid for up to a year this is not the business for you. Because if requires that type of dedication and patience to make it work. So you need to be honest with yourself.

Yeah I’m not here to lie to people. I keep it real. And the reality is not everyone is cut out for this business. It’s true. Some people will tell you whatever you want to hear to help themselves make money or to spare feelings.

I keep it real because I’m not just motivated by money and I want to see people do well with what is best for them. And this business isn’t for everyone. If you’re not willing to invest long term time and money in yourself to make this work for you, it’s just not right for you. And that’s fine. You just have to find what is. I don’t pass any judgement. But I will always keep it real. That’s why people either like me or they don’t. But they can’t say I wasn’t honest with them.

Hi Eddy,

Great article, once again proves that anyone can do it when they're committed and won't give up. I like your comment regarding "failing forward". There is a book with that title "Failing Forward" by John C. Maxwell, and available on Amazon. From your comment it appears that you might have read it.

In one of my prior comments , I offered the scenario regarding the response given by Thomas Edison. when asked why he kept trying to invent the light bulb, after he had failed two thousand times.

Edison's reply: "I didn't fail two thousand times, I just found two thousand ways it wouldn't work'.

I find that to b a brilliant response. As I indicated in my prior comments, I try to remove the word 'fail' from my vocabulary and replace it with the word 'discover'.

When I attempt something and it's unsuccessful, I didn't fail... I've just discovered one way it won't work.

Don't FAIL... think Edison!
Reply
EddySalomon Premium
I totally agree with your Steve. Our resistance to "failure" is taught at a very age. School teaches you that if you don't get something right the first time, you fail. So you it's stigmatized. Where we should be taught to have critical thinking and learning that making mistakes is part of the process to growth. So I'm very conscious of this with my kids.

Hi! I have been lots of time reading about the issues I have had with my website, practically all WA training related to these problems, used WA search to read several blog posts about this and used hours in google trying to find out what to do. I copypaste some "critical issues" I noticed when using different SEO tools. all of those paying attention on these issues.
"Your robots.txt file disallow the search engines access to some parts of your website. You are advised to check carefully if the access to these resources or pages must be blocked.
Disallow: /wp-admin/ " <---this appears in "mobile SEO" section of all those tools. I have also had difficulties to get my website's posts to indexed. or ranked. when I used siterubix.com (before buying own domain), My google search console said ALLWAYS to use the mobile version of Googlebot, now it's desktop, maybe due to this "disallow" command?
Also, google search console was able to collect traffic data after my siterubix.com domain got indexed, now it can not :/
Should I remove the siterubix site prior 30 days, unlike wa dashboard recommends to fix this?
I have also problem with too many h1 tags. actually, way too many h2-h5 tags too. I would like to have ONLY the latest article showing on my homepage but now it shows ALL of my posts in a line. That leads problems with too many H2-h6 headings regarding the info I have read. Cause EVERY single post can be found in its sub URL but also in the "list" of my homepage.

Hey Jesse,

You should contact site support about any technical issues you're having: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/support

That said you shouldn't be running your site through multiple seo tools. They will always find some issues. A lot of which aren't deal breakers. If you're following the training and building your site according to that, you won't have problems getting indexed or ranked.

In any event, any technical issue you run into with your site should be directed to site support.

I have been following it from word to word and as I said, I had no any issues before buying a domain. I realized something fundamental changed (not to good direction) and I couldn't even get my posts and changes crawled by Google. redirected (via WA dashboard), did everything as before (followed training as well) .
After realizing the problems, I used a website SEO tool (not plugins) to check what's wrong after buying a domain. Tested multiple tools (no plugins) to confirm these issues after buying a domain. Finally tried to fix these issues and got most of these issues mentioned before to fixed but the fundamental problem still exists. I consider to delete my own domain and redirect to siterubix site, it looks to work better. Yes, it's much harder to get high rankings by using mysite.siterubix.com but its not impossible unlike if using my own domain and facing these problems.

Sounds good Anthony.

So as a new site your niche should be very specific but your domain or site name would be something broad so it gives you room to expand.

Let's say I want my niche to be about pets. Pets are great because people have a passion for them and they also have problems that folks want to solve. So your site name may be something like ILovePets.com. It's broad enough that if people see it in the google search results they will trust it will be about a pet topic they may be searching for. But since our new site won't be able to compete with big sites like petsmart.com for broad general terms like dog leashes, or how to train your dog. We need to niche down our pet topic. So the initial content you would write about might be "anti-bark collars" which is a smaller specific niche topic in the overall pet niche.

Some content ideas might be:

1. Reviews on a specific anti-bark collar model 1, another review on anti-bark collar model b, etc
2. Best of ant-bark collar for small dogs, Best of anti-bark collar for under $50, etc.
3. Anti-bark collar model 1 vs anti-bark collar model 2, etc.

And you can literally do these articles for years to come because that niche has tons of products.

Then you may want to move into automatic pet feeders and follow the same content plan.

The other thing to keep in mind is your niche topic should have buyer intent. If this niche doesn't cause people to search google for solutions, products, etc that they're willing to pay for, it's not worth pursuing if you actually want to make money. So that's something else to keep in mind that people forget. You're in this to make money.

You can write some generic informational articles as well. But if you want to actually make money, you need to also write the type of articles I mentioned above and make it part of your content strategy. You can learn more about writing content that will get traffic and make you money here: So that's how you approach your niche selection. It should be very narrow that you're not competing with the bigger sites like amazon.com or a big brand which won't happen because you're new. But your domain/website name should be broad enough that allows you to cover other narrow topics within your niche like the examples I gave above.

I hope this makes sense. I discuss more niche concepts here: This should help you as well. Let me know.

How to get rid of college debt 2.) How to succeed with ONLINE dating 3.) How to succeed with dating I'm torn between #1 and #3.

Hey Rotonda,

It sounds like you haven't gone through the training since this was covered in one of the first lessons. So my advice is to go back and watch the training again carefully and slowly so you don't miss things like this.

Here's the training again: How you get paid will vary depending on which company you're affiliated with. Some companies will only pay you if someone clicks on your affiliate links and then buy something. Some will pay you for clicks or showing ads on your site. Some will pay you if someone clicks on your affiliate link and fills in some contact or lead form. Some companies may do a combination of some of these things.

When you're researching and contacting affiliate programs, you would ask them or read their faqs. But they all work differently, and pay differently. This is covered in the training.

It's great to see you back on the saddle. The cards have been stacked against all of us that have tried this business. But with the proper training, patience, consistency and hard work on your part, you can change them in your favor.

Hello Eddy,
I came here about a year ago and got "sidetracked" in dealing with life. :(

First of all, wondering if you would still be my coach if I get started today?

I have dabbled in website building and actually have a few of my own already, but have had no success.

I have been nursing for many years and need out. It is not what it used to be and I think I may go nuts if I have to continue working as a nurse.

It has got me nowhere, except living paycheck to paycheck and I want so much more for my kids.

I will be going through the training this weekend to get started.

Thank You,

HI Eddy
I am struggling with the concept of choosing my niche market and I am sure this where everyone hits the wall. So I need your help. Now the terminology wont be correct but I am sure you will follow what I am trying to say.
At the back of mind I am thinking - surely I have to choose something that has a reasonably high unit £ so that the return on the commission % is higher i.e. 6% commission on a £600 product is greater than 6% on a £6 product - also how do i make sure I am affiliated to websites that pay in £ into my bank and not $ or ones that pay outside the US and how do I associate myself with an affiliate programme - I am not convinced its just about picking something you are interested in - there must be formulas that override emotional choices. I am here to make money and whilst I get you are more likely to push on if you have a personal interest in something, time is money, I dont have time for a hobby, I have time to push something that I know will work in £'s.
I have sold all sorts in the past, I have had all sorts of hobbies in the past but now I want to invest time in something that will earn me money, passive money once I have and you have helped me set it up, therefore I can get enthusiastic about anything if I believe/know I will get the £ return.
What are your thoughts - Thanks Eva

Hey Eva,

Read the following articles I've written about the proper way to find a niche that works in this business: It will give you clarity. Before you join any affiliate program or network, contact them with your questions about their currency.

Let me know if the articles help you or not. But most people that read them have a better insight.

Hello Eddy,
I have a few ideas for my niche. The first idea that popped into my head was creating a website that features Philly-made products. I'm from Philly and I have a passion for promoting the city! I'm afraid that this will prove to be too difficult? I could see partnering with Etsy as an affiliate and featuring shops from Philly. But do you think this would work?

Eddy is it normal for my site to be down over 45 min. I have time sensitive information for my subscribers. It is awful customer service for my subscribers to have my site down when they need it most. This is not the first time that it has happened. I know you are not the one in charge of my server, just trying to reach out so this does not happen in the future. Maybe you can share with the powers that be. I have subscribers that need information before the stock market opens and now a day of their subscription is worthless because no one has access.

Thank you for any tips or help you might provide.

Hi! I have some problem I guess; I used a plugin called "WP Google Search by WebshopLogic" to add my site to google search dashboard and it worked but created some additional folder or something called CSE search to my website . is this CSE bad for my google rankings cause its just blank site with the CSE text phrase. and is there something wrong with my SEO plugin settings cause my site isn't indexed at all? even if I test
via WA site control panel to search mywebsite.siterubix.com (via google), it says nothing can be found. I forgot to share my site when I created it to get some exp people to see it and say if there is something very wrong with google index, tags of my site or in settings of seo all in plugin.

Hey Naemah,

You can private message any of the members here on WA using the little envelope in the upper right hand corner of the screen.
The training is set up for you to follow and apply. If you have questions along the way then you can leave a comment under a lesson and private message members. You can also use the live chat feature found on the left of this page to chat online with other members.

But there isn't a one to one phone consultation option if that's what you're looking for. If that was the case they would need to charge thousands of dollars since that involves a lot more personal time of successful members like myself.

So you need to be able to do your part and go through the training so you understand this business and the foundation. If you have questions as you're going through the training that's fine. But to expect for people to spoon feed you what is already covered in great detail in the training isn't realistic.

Hi Eddy, I had a quick question I transferred my domain over to WA this morning and it is requiring me to have a renewal of my domain of 1 or more years. I purchased from godaddy and I have two years on my domain. Will I be required to buy another year, so I have three years on my domain? Thank you.

Hey man!! I just got onboard with this website and I must say, I am already impressed!! For about a year, I have noticed others who have been successful in affiliate marketing, but had NO idea how to even get started and after waqtching confusing YouTube videos that basically tell you nothing, I got a bit frustrated. I just want to tell you that I think it's very cool you are doing this and I am really excited to get started. I am a big believer in God and I have been crying out to Him for a way to get out of debt, make my kids really proud, have the life I've always dreamed of, AND be able to give back into the world! Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you and God bless you!!!

Hi Eddy with a "y". Thank you for this. I have just started in affiliate marketing. In South Africa and feeling overwhelmed by all the info out there.

Hi Ursula,

You're welcome. Well the first thing you need to do is follow the training here: Mastering this business and making money with it in 3 months is not feasible. This is a long term business and not a get rich quick scheme. 6 months to a year is more realistic assuming you follow the training and apply it properly.

Sorry if you were expecting this to be fast money. It definitely isn't. But for the people that are willing to invest the time, work and money it does pay off later.

Hello reporting back for next training , how have you been? Wanted to ask before I buy the domain I have checked most affiliate programs like Amazon and eBay and was let down cause there only locations are not available to my counrty they are only available to European country's and America , are they other affiliates programs that sell phones my niche I choose is apple iPhone wanted sell them. Most of the affiliate programs for phones work with the software and maintenance.

Hey Eddy,
The only question I have right now about affiliate marketing is when it comes to selecting products on amazon to link to your website, are there only certain products that are profitable or am I able to choose ANY product regardless of the seller, the products popularity, etc.
For my example, I love longboarding. There is a lot to know about the sport as far as all the different gear and styles of riding. There is this website called "longboardexpert dot com" and the info given in this website is far from expert knowledge. This website was only started for the purpose of making a profit by someone that seems to know little to nothing on the topic. They only linked the more popular, but low quality amazon boards. Now my question is, if I were to do something similar to what this "longboard expert" website did, but link the products from amazon that I know are of higher quality and from more respectable brands, will I still be able to make money off this? It just seems that everyone is always using affiliate marketing links for the same longboarding gear and I am wondering if that is because these are the only ones that offer income. Or do they just offer a higher percentage of the sale?

So I would recommend reaching out to them for mentoring. Thanks.

This took me to site so I'm hoping I'm still on the right track. I did affiliate work 15 years ago like you talked about in your video. 15 hours a day for clicks and never got anywhere. My grand daughter got me back into computer work so I'm using her email where I help her with secretary work, but I'd like to make a few more dollars along the way. I'm retired and could use some extra help. It's scary though because of past experience. I'm going to start the training and hope it all works out. Thanks

Hey Jacki,

I think your experience now will be different because you have the proper training and support. When I tried to do it myself I had limited success. It definitely will take hard work and patience to see any major income. But it can happen when you have the proper training and community which WA provides.

Once you go through the free starter training you can decide if this is right for you or not. You lose nothing either way.

Hi Eddy,
I have decided to take the plunge, I am not normally a risk taker but certain things have been happening in my life that led me to this. Hell, a lot of millionaires have taken risks which have led to success so why not. So, as my coach, I seek your guidance also to steady my nerves along this journey lol.

EddySalomon Premium
Hey Susan,

I totally appreciate you being risk adverse. I am as well. But when it came to business I always felt this was a calculated risk that was worth it when the alternative was to work and make someone else rich the rest of my life. I also didn't like having someone else dictate my time and worth. And I also quickly realized that relying on a job is a huge risk when you can be let go at any point. And people take that risk all the time. So it's all about how you view it.

I still believe people need to be calculated with their risk. For instance I would never tell anyone to quit their job and do this business full time only. Because the reality is this business will take a long time before you see results and you still need to pay your bills while you build it.

So I'll always keep it real with you and guide you in that way. And the great thing about this community is you have a lot of support from it. I won't be your only point of contact. You'll have other people with additional perspective and resources as well. Either way, I'll continue to check up on you

I need your advice. I've got a really big category to write about-let's say it's passenger vehicles. I say there are 3 categories:Sedans, SUV's and pick-up trucks. I go on to list the pros and cons of all three types. At the end, I say-I think the best overall pick is sedans. While I'm writing the article, I am putting in links to all three categories to places where I'm an affiliate. At the end, I've just picked a category and not an individual car to review-just gave pros and cons of the different categories and why I think sedans are the best pick. Is this a good strategy or is it best to say I love Toyota Camrys and review it-giving pros and cons of that one vehicle?

I'm on Level 2 of Training-almost half-way through.

Do you think that is a good possibility or am I being too optimistic?

Hey Mike,

You have a long road to go before making money. You're just learning the foundation. So don't think about money right now. You need to view this like a farmer: There is a lot more training to go through and content you'll need to build before you can be at the make money part. But every step you take gets you closer. This is a marathon or a long term investment in yourself that will require the patience to see it throygh.

Hi, Eddy-

I decided to re-read your "Cheat Sheet". I looked at it with new eyes. When I first read it 3 months ago, I was trying to figure out a niche. Today, with the experience that I've gotten with WA and all I've done, it has new meaning. It's really a great help.
After re-reading the part about domains reflecting what your domain is about, my question is, if I change my domain name, can I transfer over the content that I've written under the present domain name without being accused of plagiarism by Google? I've spent so much time revising and honing this one post that I just can't throw it away. My site has already been ranked by Google.

Hey Mike,

I'm glad you did that because I even say in the cheat sheet, you'll find value in it at different times of your journey so it should be saved and read many times. So it's great you did that.

You can pick a different domain name and have it point to your existing site. Site support can help you with this:

EddySalomon Premium
Hey Anita,

I'm not sure if I understand your question but here goes.

If you already bought a domain which is a (YourWebsiteName.com) from somewhere else you wouldn't need to buy another one here at WA.

You could use your existing one. You would just need to have it point to the website you would build here on WA.

If you already have a site and domain hosted somewhere else you could have them hosted here on WA if you decide you want to go premium which includes hosting and obviously all the great training and support you've been experiencing here.

Site support can help you move this stuff or get it set up. They can also answer some of these technical questions you have: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/support

And no premium doesn't cover a domain. If you don't already have one you would just need to pay the $13 per year for the domain name which wa does offer. It's the only other investment you would need to make outside your monthly premium.

It's just some of the normal costs of starting a business. It's still significantly less than what you would be investing if you tried to start an offline business where you would need to rent a store, pay for inventory, employees, telephone, insurance, etc.

I hope this helps.

Hi Eddy, thank you for referring me to wealthy affiliate. I am on step 4 of my lessons and I'm looking for some long term advice. My interest is with parenting and stay at home moms. I have always wanted to create a blog around my experiences as a mom and obviously I am here to try making a business out of my blog. So here is my question, the training explains that you need to choose a niche very specific like strollers. Since I am interested in covering many mom topics and products do I create individual websites for each product and link my websites within my blog? I have already written down many many topics that I am interested in discussing within my blog but it seems like if i create a niche website for each topic that I might get bogged down with a lot to manage. On the other hand I am concerned that if I only add affiliate links within my blog I wont get the google traffic I am needing. Thanks for your help.

Looking for assistance regarding 2 things about Themes on my site, hoping you can help

1. I didn't realize until the training yesterday with Jay that I have a Child Theme and I understand they are not recommended for newbies.

What is your experience or advice on this? Should I change it?

2. I'm premium and should have access to the 2400 themes on WA but when I go to my website to take a look at themes the 2400+ is not there.

What do I need to do to get access to those themes again?

My site is - https://howtolovecats.com

Any assistance or advice you can provide is greatly appreciated.

Sorry, one more thing just popped in my newbie spinning brain...:)

Do you know if there are any mentors on WA that can provide one on one mentorship?

Hope you're having a great day. I started following you today as well.

You can change your theme to whatever you want. There isn't a hard rule about themes. You just want to pick something that is simple and clean.

Hey 'eddy with a y'. You're the first person I recognized from before here. I still do MTurk for pocket money inspired by one of your blogs, and I am here for a couple of months. Very difficult for me, because don't have rigorous business background, but the community is fantastic at helping, even on things I think I ought to know. Great to find you here! I remember you on that blog well, it really helped me, because MTurk is good for just a little extra. I still do it, but now am going to be able to put more and more hours, which I couldn't at first. Hope to see you around, and congratulations on your successes--I found this at Nathaniell's

You're welcome Patrick. The great thing about this business is you don't need a business or marketing background. Anyone can learn this business with the WA training. It may take time but we've all been newbie at one point.

Hi Eddy, I'm on level 2 lesson 8 and I went in and created myself as a new user. But when I write a new post it doesn't automatically use my name. Also when i go in to try and update the user on my past blogs there's no "author" option to click on like it shows in the video. Thanks for your help!

Hi Eddy!
I'm continuing the training right now and ran into a problem. I activated the All In One SEO Pack plugin and when I went back to activate the EWWW Image Optimizer, it wasn't there. I have no idea what happened or how to fix it. I left a question to the community, but I figured I'd cover all my bases as I don't know if anyone else has run into this problem.
Thanks,

Hi Eddy with a Y,

I've been reading your informative posts and gaining lots of insights from them. Jerry Huang pointed me in the direction of your posts. I joined WA 3 months ago via Jerry.

Your experience really shows the importance of diversifying our income. I've noticed some well known internet marketers and you see that almost all their income comes from one major source like Bluehost and in this day and age when companies can be history overnight Its short sighted to have only one source of passive income.

That's a reason I found WA. I semi-retired and moved from the USA to the Philippines on passive income I get from publishing books, mostly reprints and even there it is a very unstable foundation. If I lost that, I would be in a world of hurt.

So here I am learning from mentors such as yourself and this great community. A big THANK YOU and if you're reading this today, Happy Father's Day as well.

To Your Success!

Hi Eddy,

I'm new to the site and I'm trying to make money from home. I can't work outside of my home because I have severe asthma. I also take care of my grandmother who is a cancer survivor. I've prayed to God asking for a job I can do from home, which would give me a good income, and give me the freedom to take care of my grandmother, and follow my dreams. Is there any guidance you can offer me to help me get started? Thank you!

then one day I was searching the WWW and clicking on this that until I discover WA tried it was surprise gave it a shot, didn't commit right away until I purchase a hair business then I figure that I need and want to know all of this but have self doubt etc. But now I want tp prove to my self I can do this.

I'm overwhelmed but I will not give up

Hey Janice,

I don't know if I understand your question. If you're talking about your homepage, then it should be the same as your domain.
My domain is WorkAtHomeNoScams.com but my Site title name is "WorkAtHomeNoScams.com Helps You Work At Home & Avoid Scams!"

You may want to leave this question in the lesson that discusses your title and domain.

Hi: just wondering if the domain name is what google uses to enhance the engine search. Or is it just the Title or Header... Does the Domain name really matter. If I don't stay with the program or upgrade to Premium what happens to my site that I have built on your platform. It seems that to build the site I must upgrade now is that right please. :)

Hey Christine,

The training explains the importance of a domain name.
But you can read more about my thoughts about it here: Your site question is explained in the comments on this article: Free Starter members can build 2 free siterubix sites. Please be sure you are actually following the training because you would see that you can build a site. I'm not sure if you're just bouncing around without actually following the training which will lead to confusion.

I've been devouring your posts here on WA.
Really great, helpful stuff.
Based on some of the things you've written, I could swear you've been in my head (it's a scary place brother, so don't go there alone). Before I ever read your stuff, I was re-evaluating my niche idea because I don't think there is enough monetization potential there to reach my goals. Then I thought maybe I should finish the course work before I make any kind of decisions at all.
Then low and behold your blogs confirmed my thoughts.
Thanks for sharing your experience and knowledge.
I appreciate you Eddy with a y!

Hey Eddy! I recently read your article about your blogs earning you over 100K part time and I was super encouraged by what you shared. It also gave me some things to think about when it comes to consistency. I'm new to WA, but I've been around internet marketing since 2015. I never saw any success, because I was apart of MLM type companies that I didn't believe or have confidence in. Also, i never realized that with the right amount of focus on the right things, I could create a site that generates me income. I always thought it just had to be about promoting some company on social media, but I'm glad to see that WA doesn't focus on teaching that. Anywho, you have an inspiring story and you seem like just the person I'd love to be connected to. I hope all is well. God Bless! -Lilly

Hey Estrellita,

I'm happy to hear I could inspire you. I've been down the MLM route as well and I felt the same things. It felt pushy and unnatural. And that's why this business appealed to me because they teach you how to attract people that want what you're offering. So it's a huge shift that makes this type of business a lot easier than promoting some MLM. You're going to learn a lot here at WA. I had internet marketing experience as well before coming here. But WA filled in the gaps and showed me where I was making mistakes. So it will be eye opening for you. I would encourage you to read my cheat sheet as well:

Okay Eddy (with a Y). I took the bait and took the plunge!
I watch the walk through video and here is my first question: So straight off the bat I can see the benefits of joining premium membership but 'premium' comes at a price and you used the word 'free' 'wont cost you a dime'? Now I am not judging, just observing. My problem is that the whole reason I am looking into this is to make money. Eh, because I don't have enough to cover my responsibilities & meet my commitments. And I am desperately looking for a way to get out of the corporate rat race while still earning the same income that rat race is giving me.
So, my question is: how long would it take me to make enough money to pay for my premium subscription? Because it is clear to me that I need a premium subscription to enable me to make enough money to quit the rat race.
As I am still full time working for the boss of rat race, for now I can spare 2 - 3 hours per day on this. How long before I can earn enough from this program just to cover my premium membership every month?
don't give me vague answers. You have done this, how long did it take you.
I hope you don't regret referring me LOL because I ask a lot of questions, am always a bit sceptical and ask detailed questions.

EddySalomon Premium
Hey Annmari,

A couple of things. I'm always clear on my blog WA is free to start, but there is a premium membership. It's not something I hide. Sometimes people don't take the time to read my landing pages fully where I lay all this out.

In terms of how long it will take you to make money with your business.The answer is I have no idea. I don't know what your website is going to be about. I don't know how you're going to apply what you learn. I don't know if your writing is going to be any good. There are too many unknowns about your personal situation that I don't know. And however long I took or anyone else has no bearing on you. I discuss this in detail in this article which you should read: This isn't a job. You can't go into this with an employee mentality where if you put x hours, you'll expect x pay at x time frame. It doesn't work like that and it's why 99,9% of the population aren't business owner. There is a delayed gratification you need and there is an element of an unknown which scares the crap out of people. And that's why this isn't for everyone.

People that do approach this like a long term investment in themselves who will work at this until they do achieve their goals will eventually see success.

You can read about their success here: For some people that may be a few weeks, but for most it could be months or even a year before you see your first dime. No one has the exact time frame. It's not a "vague" answer, its the reality of trying to start a business.

The good news is you have a full time job. So that pays your bills. You can work on this part time and build it up to your full time income or replace it. I literally just discussed this here: So it can be done. But I can't give you any guarantees or time frames. Starting a business is a calculated leap of faith. You need to have the stomach to make it happen and work at it until it does. It's just that simple. I'm sorry if this isn't the answer you want to hear. But I don't sugar coat things. This business isn't meant for everyone. If it were easy and results could be guaranteed within a certain time frame everyone would be a business owner.

Hey Eddy. I see that meny great things have happened in your life and I am really happy for you. You are persistent and that many times is the edge one needs. I started with WA about 9 months ago and have done everything wrong because I did not really follow the training and because I was occupied 10 hours a day with my day job. I also have a family so the hours I was puting into my affiliate marketing project were very few.

I have lately quit my day job and have started a new site which I am very happy to be working for, I'm far from earning my first dime but I am learning many things about this business (and not only). Needless to say, I am now following WA teachings and don't plan to get off the track. I am sure that somewhere down the line, my work will pay off.

I have followed you and am very happy to be able to be a part of your network. Keep up the excelent work. You rock. Kudos!

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!

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?

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...

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.

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!!! :)

Hi Eddy, Am so proud to say that I just finished my first post. Nervous and excited at the same time to press the publish button. Am very reluctant to post it because I don't know what people will think. Is there anyway I can sent you a preview of what it looks like before I post it . 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 . I just half way completed the training about how to write a post and followed all the directions on that, but if you can i would appreciate some input please. Thank You

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.

Sorry to hear about your injury. I did help you out by bringing you here to WA. So now you just need to go through the training so you can learn how to build your own business and be your own boss and not work for others.

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!
Nice to meet you. I'm glad I "fell" onto your page. I'm excited about what I see here and have already started the training videos. I have some time to invest in learning new skills, and this looks to be the right place. I'm eager to take in what knowledge I can and create something new and life changing from it!

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.
Eddy, hope you have a fine weekend.

Anytime I run into technical issues I contact site support here:

Hi Eddy , thanks for your encouragement. I started my website and my mind is all over the place. I don't know what my focus should be. I'm wondering I should cancel the word press website I just purchased so I can invest that money to upgrade to "premium" so I can let mind run all over the place with lots of niches...lol

EddySalomon Premium
Hey Tonya,
You're welcome. Have you read my cheat sheet and niche article: Read both articles, it will help you focus on niche ideas that will actually work well with this business model. In terms of cancelling whereever else you have your site, It would make sense if you find value in WA support, training and all the other things that are included that I'm sure you're not getting with your wordpress site elsewhere.

Hi Eddy,

Yes, I had looked over a few review websites for WA but felt that yours was the most user friendly-easy to read through site that I came across. Definitely wanted to join through your link.
Thanks for your efforts in making this process smooth!

I am doing well.Just going over the training videos. How about yourself?

Take care,

Hi Eddy, It's so nice of you to reach out and introduce yourself, Eddy! I'm glad I found your blog and signed up with WA. I do have a few questions about WA that I haven't been able to figure out by looking around on the website. I'm wondering about the technical part of setting up and running websites. How hard is it to do? This is what has been a barrier for me in the past.
Reply
EddySalomon Premium
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.

Hi Eddy with a Y thank you for getting with me so quick. i have been going through the dashboard and checking everything out.
WA looks to be a very large happy family.
i am sure i will be reaching out to you for a lot of advice talk with you soon. i will be upgrading to premium tomorrow.
Thank you

Hi Eddy! Thanks for the message. I guess I'm still confused about how to make profits from establishing a website with WA. I read that there are products from places like Amazon, but how do I start to get those? or do I just promote the products on my website? It would be great if you can explain or direct me to where I can look up for more info. Thank you in advance!

Hi! I am so excited to be here. I wanted to do this a few months ago because I’m not working and I’m broke now my 19-year-old who had been home over two years from an Automobile accident has graduated high school and is working. My family all laughed at me and said I couldn’t do this and so I said they’re right and I kept looking for jobs. And something, I think it was God, lead me to your website I need this I need to know I can do something right. I’ve done it in my head so many times and I do feel I would be good at it. I don’t need support here. Sounds like I have it there. I need it. I just now cancelled a $9.95 payment to be a “mystery shopper” so......LETS GO!

Hey sir, I had a question. As far as a niche goes, I'm a huge fan of physical activity, specifically the clothing aspect of it. I feel like I could write for days and days on it, as I'm an ambassador for one company and invested in another. I'm just hesitant I suppose, after going down the rabbit hole of info articles.

Thanks, Patrick

Again you can call me Eddy. No need to call me sir.
Did you read the two articles I recommended: Do you feel like sportswear clothing can meet what I laid out in both articles?

Sorry, Eddy. It’s gonna take a lot to break that habit.

I believe that after reading both of those articles that it definitely could. It also helps that there isn’t a shortage of clothing out there.

Hey Eddy, I have an idea for a niche but I am struggling with a couple things. First, I ha e no clue what to use as a site name, or page name. Second, I'm curious what kind of content I could put on the website, in addition to the product, i.e. blogging and such...when you get a second lol.

Inspiring stuff Eddy. I am in the same niche as you but focused on a specific market and your posts were over the web when I was doing research different platforms. I didn't know you were on WA and recognized your face from workathomenoscams.

It shows that you have put in the work and are an authority of sorts on Google. That inspires me to to know that if I follow the WA training I will see some success.

Congratulations on your success!

Hi Eddy, I think am becoming your number one fun because of your straight forwardness. As humans we easily get hurt at hearing and reading the truth. I have been reading about your posts on writing blogs intended to help people improve their writing.

Yes, I tend to be very blunt and upfront. In terms of your WA post. It's good. But ultimately that's not the posts that will be making you money. It will be the ones that you write on the blog you create. So when you start working on that I can give you more feedback. But the best thing to do is make sure you apply what I've listed in my cheat sheet:
