About El-jefe-Kyle
Joined October 2015
Hello WA, my name is Kyle. Just a short background on me. I began my internet "career" with a big old scam, being naive as I was. I didn't actually lose any money over it but I was about to. Luckily bank problems I was having actually saved the day because I wasn't able to pay for the scam. After this I was about to give up on the whole make money online thing. Being so close to getting scammed discouraged me, but it was to my luck that I kept researching and found Wealthy Affiliate.

I never thought this would be possible. In fact, I never even thought of affiliate marketing before coming here.

To make a very long story short, WA has been life changing and all for the better. I'll be a member for life without a doubt.

Hi,
I too almost got caught up in the scam. I'm glad I found WA, because of your warning, actually. I am now beginning to write "about me" for the website and honestly, I'm a bit, confused. I thought, I was creating a "virtual store" and to offer my story would, in my opinion (and experience) slow the shopper down! Could you please help me understand this. I am in need of making a "profitable" store. Am I in the right place?
Thanks,
Sharon

Hi Shanon. Well you aren't actually creating a virtual store because what you are taught here at WA isn't to sell things directly. What you will be taught is affiliate marketing which is where you promote products and earn commissions, but the products aren't sold on your site. You could, for example, promote a dog toy on Amazon... someone would click on your affiliate link and be directed to Amazon to purchase the product, earning you a commission.

The about me page won't slow anything down. Most people visiting your site won't even read it but it is still a nice personal touch to help visitors get to know you more and adds trust.

Hello Kyle!

I would like to ask for your support with my website. I really appreciate if you can leave a comment in any of the articles that I wrote on my website. I am just starting, so I don’t have a lot yet.
Also if you can give me your personal opinion about it.

Thank you in advance!

I PMed you when I came back to WA and got no response. If I overlooked your reply then I apologize for the oversight. I would truly like to have some help. I seem to be floundering in getting my business monetized. This is my only source of income so I desperately need help. The name of my website is grilling-aglobalevent.com.

Kyle almost made the same mistake last night.I listen to a two hour webinar I signed up for a week ago, Looking up info on reviews on a certain AWOL webinar."Oh boy: it did not look good, Well as it turn out he had mentioned Wa as his competition.I did watch the webinar, after two hours and a price tag of Ten Thousand Dollars later, guess where i ended up?,So have a nice day and will be following you

Congratulations on not being scammed, Kyle. I've been trying to crack the "making-money-online" code for 9 months now and I've accumulated $8K in credit card debt. The majority of that has gone to "training programs" that were NOT helpful! I've only been a member for about an hour but I feel some hope returning. Thank you for the connection!

As a matter of fact, I need to get a Computer, maybe a cheap one to start with since I'm using my Smartphone for now.
Reply
el-jefe-Kyle Premium
Well much of this depends on how much you are working on it. But I wouldn't expect to earn anything for at least 3 months. This type of business takes a while to ramp up.

And yes you are going to need a computer. I don't even know if all of this is possible on a smart phone and if it is it sure would't be very practical.

Still not working. I know what you mean. When I go to All In One SEO,then General Settings, I enter it. If I go to posts or pages(Yes you can enter title and description there too.) But if I go back to "General Settings" my title and description is gone. The page is blank again. I am confused. If I am on post or page section I can save that as a draft, but that is a different place from what I am thinking of. ????
Reply
el-jefe-Kyle Premium
Oh I see what you are saying. This is because when you enter it for a page/post the information entered is only for that page/posts SEO, not the website in general.

The information you enter in the general settings is for your site in general.

Hi Terry. I don't think there is anything you can do. This isn't a problem in any way though. Even if your site is live it is likely going to get such little traffic at this point it wont matter. This is just what happens to everyone.

Maybe there is something you can do though. I'm not sure.

When I've built web sites in the past with people who do it for me...it wasn't launched till it was "done." I understand.that it won't get traffic, but it's not an ideal way to work. I wrote Kyle and asked him.

Hi Kyle. I'm sorry I've been so unresponsive lately. I unfortunately wasn't even able to read your last message since I need to be a premium member to access it and I haven't gone premium yet. The thing is I tried to upgrade on my very first or second day here, but my card basically wouldn't let me which was kind of discouraging. And on top of that I've been doing a lot of job searching so I can deal with my monthly student loan payment; things have been pretty hectic.

Hey Kyle! This is Ray Keddington from California just touching base. First, I wanted to say "Thank you" for saving me from going down the rabbit hole with AWOL101. I read your article on the AWOL101 Scam where you mentioned Wealthy Affiliates, clicked on the link and the rest is history. Again Thank You.

Second, The reason I felt AWOL101 was a farce was due to the fact that they continually pushed their high priced software and associated programs. Their business associates/students when they wake up, realize that is were the money is made. Reselling the AWOL101 concept (software, training and programs) through the program.

Now, my issue. First, After reading Kyle's recap of the Wealthy Affiliates Conference in Las Vegas, I get the feeling the only way to make it to the conference is to sell the WA Affiliate Program and or the Premium Membership. Is my assumption correct? I want to build a long term, high volume, long lasting revenue producing on-line sales and advertising company, selling other peoples stuff. If I am successful in this, am I unable to attend the Conference? Second, I know we are working in a PC driven on-line industry that's is entirely communicated over the WEB or e-mail or chat rooms. Because I'm old school, is it frowned upon to have one-on-one telephone conversations? OR Is there a live help desk somewhere that I missed?

I didn't mean to take a lot of your time with this message, but these are a couple of questions that were troubling me.

Hi Ray. You are correct. The WA conference is for WA Affiliates only.

You can make all the money you want promoting other products on Amazon, etc... but the conferences is strictly for WA.

Unfortunately there is no phone support here.
Reply
NKeddington1 Premium
Well, I have to admit I'm a little discouraged because it looked like the conference would be very beneficial to meet some of the major affiliates and the principles to discuss strategy regarding all aspects of on-line marketing. Pros/Cons and success stories.

Other than becoming an Annual Premium Affiliate what additional costs are to e incurred by a newbie like me?

Good Morning Kyle. Don't mean to be a pain in the backside but I have one more daunting question...........At what point in the training should/will I be able to see my active website on-line with a simple web search by Google? Based on all indicators I should be able to see my site at the end of the Course 1 Level 10, I think..
Reply
el-jefe-Kyle Premium
Yes you will be able to but at that point you more than likely won't be ranked for any keywords very highly. Your site will be very new and Google will not give it good rankings.

Hi Dennis

No you don't have to transfer the domains over here. You can just point the nameservers over here to use the hosting. And I don't think you can create sub domains here but I could be wrong.

By the way I'm not the owner Kyle. I'm just a member with the same name.

Hi Kyle, Thanks for the message. Just getting started but already brainstorming on what items I should focus on. Can I have more than one specialty on the same page or would I do separate pages? For instance if I wanted to do women's clothing, and makeup. This may not make sense due to the fact that I just started. I may be jumping ahead of myself.

Hi. Yes you can do that. Personally I like to create larger niche sites where I can take them in different directions later on but some people like to have narrow focused sites. Small niches are easier to deal with when you are just starting out but I see nothing wrong with what you want to do.

I will say though that clothing might be a hard niche to pursue because fashions are constantly changing.

Gotcha, I just threw two subjects out there. I'm not really interested in doing clothing. Back to brainstorming! Thanks for responding!

Just went through my first training-Wow! I'm very impressed and ready to go. I had to stop for a while and return to the video. I clicked on "Get Started Here" and "You are here". Should it take you to the exact spot where you left off. It was taking me to the beginning of the video.

I think the "you are here" will just take you to the lesson but not to the spot in the video you left of at like you said.

Thank you for reaching out to me Kyle! Are you really within the top fifty on WA? That's pretty cool! Maybe you would have some valuable feedback for my niche. Right now I'm targeting families with young children who want affordable natural remedies and are open to trying out essential oils.

I'm really enjoying the world of affiliate marketing. I've never known anything about it until I was drawn to it through your blog. I think I came through a review you did in working for Cambly (or some other online job). I happen to be working for Cambly right now but I'm hoping my affiliate marketing will end up talking its place. I don't even know you but I'm very grateful I stumbled across WA through you. Thanks again!
Reply
el-jefe-Kyle Premium
Hi Nathaniel.

Essential oils is a pretty popular topic right now and will continue to be. Its a good niche but I don't know if I'd limit it to only targeting families with young children. I think essential oils in of itself would be plenty narrow enough.

That said, I'm not personally involved in this niche so I can't give any real good insight. But just from looking at it from the outside it seems to be good.

Hello Kyle, I've realized that the problems I've had with my website are mostly due to the Theme I've chosen. Unless you are good at CSS some themes will not allow you to edit your page display, so it's important to pay attention the previewed page before making a theme choice. Incidentally your part name of "el-jefe" means "the boss". Are you the boss of WA?

Hi Kyle, thanks for your reply. I did change my theme. One more question, when following Kyle's video and creating an "About Me" page on my website, would a visitor to the website not be more interested in my product rather then my life history? Perhaps the focus should be on the product and what it could do for them?

Yes your website is going to be 99.9% about your niche. The about me page is just to give people a feeling of trust and to tell them a little about you and why they should listen. Things like this.

Hi Kyle,
So, I have several idea's for my niche, and I have several websites already up that I was trying to get going previously, but didn't gain much traction due to not enough knowledge. Should I leave those alone for now and create a new site here via rubix site builder? Or bring them in and look at ways to make them better?
Reply
el-jefe-Kyle Premium
It depends on what you want to do. If you have totally lost interest in the other niche sites you made in the past I would probably focus on something new. Its important that you are interested in your niche or else it likely won't work out.

You don't have to have a bunch of knowledge in any niche, just an interest at least and a desire to learn.

I was wondering if you could take a look at my website and help me with getting rid of the two uncategorized images on top (I don't know how they got there) and also, how can I make my about me page not show in the front the page next to my blog? I have never built a webpage before and I don't know how to edit or change certain things.

I'm not sure why those uncategorized images are there. I would just go into your posts, then categories and delete the "uncategorized" ones because they don't matter.

For the about me page if you want it to show up on the side id depends on the them you have how you can do this. But for any theme you should be able to place a side text widget and copy & paste it right in there. It would be really long though. I would briefly summarize it

Thought I had answered you a while ago but it must have disappeared into cyberspace.
My day job is killing me with all its demands, leaving me very little time for WA but I do try to spend an hour or two every night. Not always successful and for a couple of weeks really had no time at all. Better now and the plan is to review a bunch of websites to pick up some pointers on how everyone else is doing it. Not very productive if I keep re-inventing the wheel all the time. When one is time stressed like I am that is not a good plan.

If you have time would love to hear your comments on what I have done so far.

A crafts type site is something that could work. Its a really broad niche so you could take it a lot of different directions. I would probably start out in one direction and add on in the future. For example start with "paper mache" and branch out from there. That's just an example I don't really know all too much about this niche.

Yes it is necessary to continue to create content... articles, blog posts, whatever you want to call it in order to rank and get traffic from Google.

How often do you suggest blogging my opinion pieces? THANKS!! Bob

Hey,

well a blog doesn't have to be opinion posts like many people think. You can write anything you want to. Most of my blog posts are reviews and informative articles that I have put together from research.

There is no rule for how much to write but in the beginning like you are you cannot write too much. I would just write when you can and keep pumping out the new content.

Thanks so much for the extra attention! In my site, I have to tell potential customers for my book to go to my publisher's site or Amazon.

Is there at least a way to see if you are getting any traffic with the free site? THANKS! Bob

Hi,

You can easily insert links with your Wordpress site here at WA. Here is some training on this.. You can see traffic that your site is getting using google analytics which is free.

However I would suggest holding off and just going through the training. You will learn both of these things if you follow along.

Hi there.

You will lose access to some of the tools and features here at WA, such as the ability to send private messages, the ability to host your own domain here, and some other things.

You will just go back down to a basic Starter Membership, which you can see what it includes here...

I would probably wait for the Black Friday sale also. That is when i upgraded to premium 2 years ago.

Hey Kyle,

I think I just gave the owner of Wealthy Affiliates credit for you getting me here. I forgot you both have the same name. I feel kind of dumb for that, but thanks bro. Your comments on AWOL got me to check out Wealthy Affiliates. It seems promising so far. If it starts to go in the tiniest amount in earning income for me and my wife, I will become a premium member. I am still a little skeptical, but I will go through the training and set everything up and give it a fair shot. I have a monstrous type of busy schedule with school and work, but you have convinced me to really give this a shot. Thanks, bro.

Hi there. You aren't doing anything wrong. The page is a complete copy so its going to say that. Just make sure you check off "NOINDEX" and "NOFOLLOW" in the All In One SEO part below the post as the training goes over and you will be fine.

Hello Kyle
Thank you for you interest in my progress at WA. I have the feeling that WA is finally something that will help me accomplish my goals as regard to online working. I am slowly picking up on things and slowly advancing toward my dream goals. I am still at the beginning of Course two, but with the alive training we receive today I will try to make a task schedule to help me progress in my work. It was very nice, Kyle did a good job on that.
Thank you again for asking.

hi el-jefe :) Looks like I found this site through one of your marketing campaigns which I have gathered links us to some degree. I am new to internet marketing, but I am excited and looking forward to learn as much as I can. Just wanted to say hi and say I look forward to learning as much as I can from WA and possibly getting some guidance from you ;)

Hi and thanks!

Just to let you know something's happening over here... I just got my own domain yesterday. I followed the instructions Kyle gave on setting up a GooglePlus account. Then I finished up on my website at 3AM and uploaded it. Then I put the whole thing together in GooglePlus. 9 HOURS LATER - I got a ping from someone who isn't WA telling me I had a great article and wanted to contribute his photos (he is a Canon guy) AND his wifes photos (she's a Nikon girl)!!! Not 15 minutes after that I got the email from WA that my site has ALREADY been indexed by Google! THE PHOTOGRAPHY FREAK IS ON BABY!!!! BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Ah, can you tell I'm happy and STOKED at the same time?

That's awesome. When you say you finished up on your site are you talking about finishing writing a post and then publishing it?

Hi Kyle. I hope all is well. Thanks to you, I have 56 followers already. I still have to set hyperlinks to my push buttons on my websites, but I am doing just fine with it. I was super intimidated about the thought of setting up a website and to boot, an online business. Fortunately, the training is super easy to follow and I am loving this experience. I can't thank you enough for your blog that caught my eye. I paid for similar training with the other business you mentioned and I still have not been able to get my website live with them yet. They took 2 weeks to get back to me only to refer me to their Facebook group for help. I was beyond upset. So by coming across your post...was what I needed to get off the ground. Take care my friend.

Hey Kyle,
I've got a question about choosing my niche:

In the billiards/pool industry there's a lot of small business' running, but nobody has really put the industry together (ei. NHL,FIFA, MLB, NFL, OLYMPICS). So I've got question's about my niche:
Is "pool/billiards" a good niche?
Or is "connecting pool/billiards community together" a better one?
Others?

Thank you,
Kind regards :)

Pool/billiards is a good niche in my opinion. I would go with it over your second one.

Hi , I am just wondering what the purpose of following others and being followed is ? I am totally new to internet money making and marketing , website building etc .
What I do know is I am pretty intelligent , and if help and others really showing me how to do this is available in depth , then I will do what needs to be done .
Please answer the question in the 1st paragraph and share all the helpful info and encouragement you have for me .
Thank you much ,

Hi Brett, there is no monetary purpose to it if that is what you are asking. The only purpose is to stay connected so that you know whats going on and can more easily communicate back and forth.

Hey Kyle,
My question for you today is this.
I currently work for a customer service company (actually its retention) but with this position i take thousands of calls per month with specific needs. Unfortunately these customers are not fluent to terms and conditions. That's where I come in, as a product specialist. I probe to find their needs and capitalize on them, keeping them as active auto ship customers with discounts to continue. I see the needs on a daily basis. Do you think with this ability, I can use that knowledge to be successful?

Hello Kyle,

Sorry to bother, Gosh I wish I did not have to do this again to you. But I am working on my 3 websites again and trying to execute the 3 new pages exercise, diets and reviews, when it dawned on me that I did not have a Top Menu on any of my pages from before. I do not know how to proceed without any content there. That's one situation the other is how do I get pictures into my gallery so that I may be able to download onto my website? Please help... again sorry to be a bother...

Hi,
There is plenty of training on building menus for your sites if you search here at WA.

And as for uploading images you can do so when you are editing a page/post by clicking the "add media" button that is in the editor.

Hi Kyle,
This is Elona Madar, my nickname. my mother gave me is Lonny. I would like to go by Lonny here.
My problem: I did the 2nd lesson and I had to give my goals. I made a mistake and put 5 hours a week and it should have been 5 hours a day.The second thing is, it asked me if I needed help writing my goals and I answered NO. Now I don't see a "follow me" next to my name. Does that mean nobody will help me? Can that be fixed?
Thanks Lonny Madar

el-jefe-Kyle Premium
Hi Lonny,

You are fine. Those goals were for yourself and it doesn't matter what your goals are really.

And don't worry about the "follow me" thing. No one can see that by their own name. You only see it by other people's names.

Hi there, I haven't yet got my picture up just yet. I started an account about a few years back. Now I want to keep trying again. My other profile ran out. Without this group I would be in billions of dollars in debt. You have some good ideas. You mentioned Best buy which is my favorite store to go to. How can start a legitimate business selling xbox's and video games. I would like to sell a variety of game consoles.

Hi Peter,

The training will go over all of this. So my advice would be to simply follow along. You can absolutely promote xbox's and video games with this method.

Hi i joined today have no idea what to do or how, can a person really make money and if so around how much say in 3 months or so. I would really like to have a idea so i know how much time to spend on this, and what would be a average monthly income. thank you for your time
Reply
el-jefe-Kyle Premium
There is no way for me to give you an accurate answer here because it can differ so much. I didn't make a penny until around 2 months in and at 3 months I wasn't making much of anything still.

I went full-time doing this when I was around a year and a couple of months into it.

Kyle brief question and what kind of content you think would have the most traffic for site.

1 meme website that has different categories. could have feature to bump ones up or down depending on popularity with ads along into bringing in potential revenue

2 forum website that I would place forums for every sporting event for fans to go on and anonymously say what's on their mind about the event, outcome, other team and so on. Same situation with ads down side.

Let me know your thoughts.
Reply
el-jefe-Kyle Premium
Ryan, honestly I'm not too sure on that. I would probably say the sporting events one but I'm not too sure. All of my websites are more narrow niche related sites that are all focused around content that I write, not so much reader interaction.
Reply
Hi Kyle, i have choosing a Niche ( yes, in my mind now ). Of course it's base on my hobby/interest. It's related to Badminton. As you know, badminton have a lot of things involved, eg : rackets, shoes, socks, shirts and etc. And a lot of brands. Where should i start?
Reply
el-jefe-Kyle Premium
I am not all that familiar with this sport but I personally like niches on the larger side and think badminton as a whole is a good niche to start with.
Reply
Kyle - I am just getting started and am already stuck with the whole niche thing... I did the live chat to get thoughts but that was just too much opinion.

Here's my thought. I am passionate about all aspects of health and fitness. Particularly nutrition and spiritual health through meditation and mindfulness. I am in my 40s and have noticed there are about a million "health coaches" out there now selling programs, shakes, meal plans, etc but they do not seem to recognize that people of different ages need to approach health differently.

So, if I were looking for products, I would search for something like "how to be healthy in my 40s" or "nutrition for women in their 40s".

But the live chat people are telling me I need to be way more specific. One example was "how to get biceps in your 40s". I don't get it. A niche is one thing and it's important, but trying to make a living off something that specific doesn't make sense to me.

Do you have any thoughts?
Reply
el-jefe-Kyle Premium
Hi,

I think maybe the people on the live chat were confused as to what you might have been asking.

"how to get biceps in your 40s" is a good keyword to focus a single piece of content around, but it is way too specific for an entire site, as you said.

"how to be healthy in my 40s" or "nutrition for women in their 40s" would both work in my opinion. They are both narrowed down from the broad niche of health and fitness but they aren't too narrow. There is a lot you could do with them.

Next time you create email, when you go to setup email it gives you the smtp settings. If you click it you get incoming and outgoing info. I have only ever seen a password on the incoming but on this the outgoing has a password as well and its different than incoming...weird.

I have tried everything to get my email client Thunderbird and cell phone to work with WA's email for my website. This domain is with godaddy but I transferred over to WA and have built the website for it. I dont want it forwarded either. Also, I dont understand why there is an outgoing password because Ive never been asked that before...ever. Its hurting my brain!!! Please help,

Hi,

For the email problem I would contact SiteSupport. You can submit a support ticket to them through the SiteRubix menu. They should be able to take care of that.

And I'm not exactly sure what you mean by and "outgoing" password?

I know there are real people here BUT i have worked on this problem since noon yesterday- constantly asking for help to no avail
I am surprised you have to ask me what the question is. I have posted it a dozen times.

I have bought several domain names on Rubix/ Word Press and two of them have the same domain name. I dont know how that could happen but if it is not changed i will have to abandon both sites- If I send someone to the site and the blank one comes up ???
How can this be fixed is the question. 2 sites with the same name. www.darrellswhatsup. com

I only get on this platform every morning and every night so that is the only time I can answer questions.

I see that your domain doesn't come up. I know you are going to be mad again because I can't help you.

What you are going to have to do is submit a ticket to SiteSupport. They are the technical support team here at WA.

If you go over to the SiteRubix menu you will be able to find SiteSupport.

They are around 24/7 to help out.

I agree, your problem doesn't make any sense and I have never heard of anything like that. But the guys and gals at SiteSupport will be able to figure it out.

Let me know if you have any other questions or need help,

-Kyle

thanks This had delayed me by at least a week. I have decided to regroup and plan exactly what i want to achieve and how to lay out a site.
This is all very new to me and if I get bogged down or can not learn it I will look elsewhere for hosting and site development. May even go to Shopify since I own about 1,000 shares of their stock. :)
There are, as you know several others that I am discovering. All of my life I have worked for myself and usually just tell others what I want done while i focus on the big picture. It has dawned on me that while I have worked way more than most employees, that my success has been in hiring the right people, explaining what I want done and getting out of their except to correct or help them.
I think that may be what i end up doing with online marketing.

Ok, I'm starting to see where original content is critical. Technical expertise is quickly becoming ubiquitous, world-wide. And worse, technical skills are quickly being automated: we are looking at a future glut if we're not there already.

But if you have any skill at all in some unique way you're somewhat safe from the machine. I see the utility of the internet as being a showcase for your individual verbal and graphic skills..
