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.

Thanks for asking. Have been totally tied up with my dayjob (24/7) with no time for my WA.
Now back at it. Finally
Do have a question for you.
I wrote a blog and accidentally published it as a Page rather than a Post. The Title shows up in the menu on my website but the content is not there. How do I get the content into the website?

Hi Larry. Well since your site is new and all I would just copy the content over to a post and publish it again, then delete the page.

Hey Kyle,
Saw the Black Friday special. What will I lose if I wait until Black Friday to purchase my upgrade? I don't want to miss out or lose anything that I have acquired so far. Black Friday seems like a good way to come into a premium membership.

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...
https://www.wealthyaffiliate.com/join/

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.

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?

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.

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.

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

el-jefe-Kyle Premium
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,

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..

Hey Kyle. I now have a couple of questions. Things have came to a screeching halt. I noticed that my menu is on the page twice..top and bottom. Is there a way to remove one? Also, is it possible to have the about me page on the front page where my first post goes? Soooo embarrassed, as these are probably silly questions. I could really use some help moving forward. Is there a classroom or video with help customizing?
Reply
el-jefe-Kyle Premium
Hi,

If you go to "appearance" on the menu inside your website dashboard you will then see a tab labeled "customize", click that. You should then be able to choose what is the front page of your website.

And also when you go to "appearance" you will see a tab labeled "menus". This is where you can change your menus and you could delete the one at the bottom or replace it with another one.

There are probably some good training on creating menus here at WA but off the top of my head I can't think of any specifically.

Hi, Kyle
I guess like most people that I am sceptical about online "get rich quick schemes"
As you offer 7 days free is great, just on question before I go any further with this:
What are the ongoing costs if I upgrade to Premium?
Is there any additional costs in developing and maintain a website and it's address?
Reply
el-jefe-Kyle Premium
Premium is $49/month or there is a yearly plan (around $359/year I think). That includes everything there is at WA including unlimited hosting, keyword tool use, technical support, ssl certificates, and so on.

The only other cost would be to buy a domain if you do want your own domain, which is around $10 a year.

Kyle -- Kyle #2??? You have a very nice and brief bio. I, too, suffered greatly in finding a decent way of making money on the internet. Too often I was totally overwhelmed and got absolutely NO support. I am still a bit overwhelmed but I know with a little time and effort things will turn to my favor. I am going to approach this program SLOWLY and knowing that all I have to do is ask questions relieves me of the burden of trying to figure it all out on my own. Thanks for being here.

Hi Robert. Yes you can click on anyones profile and above their bio you will see a private message button. You can just click that and send them a direct message that no one else will see.
