About ElaineSmith1
Joined November 2017
I'm currently on disability but would still like to contribute to my kids. I have two great adult kids and a beautiful granddaughter that I am blessed to see all the time. I do have medical issues that prevent me from working away from home so I'm looking to work from home. I'm excited about this program and hopeful that I will benefit from it.

Hi, Elaine. What'd you think of exchanging ideas? I'm sort of floundering - happily, mind you. I have a home title and description, but how can I test it? Any advice?

Compare what different people are doing? Or review different programs? Such as different programs offered for senior adults in your area. Or you could do one area compared to another. Hope these ideas help. May not even be what you where wanting.

Elaine,

It's great to meet you. I see that you went premium already. I did on my first day because of the further training that then became available to me.

I have a granddaughter, too. She'll be two in December. When she started walking, it wasn't very long before she was running everywhere. Such a bundle of energy she is.

Thank you for following me. I'll follow you as well. If you haven't already gone to a yearly payment, on the 24th, the Black Friday event offers the yearly payment for $299. That's 82 cents a day. I already went yearly when it was offered at $1 a day, but on Black Friday I can purchase another year for $299, and the third year will then remain at that price.

I'm keeping a spreadsheet of what I spend in anticipation of what I'll earn. I can't wait to start seeing the numbers on that side of the spreadsheet. I know that it takes a while for that to happen, and so meanwhile I train. I see that you have finished Course 1. And that you have set up your first web site. That's a great start you've got going.

I wish you much continued success.

Debra.

Welcome to WA - lots to learn here- stay focused - go through the Certification Courses first - you will get confused or frustrated from time to time - ask lots of questions - people are here to help you. 

HERE ARE 3 WA'ers Training Posts - they helped me - one is vocabulary you use here - one is a detailed use of your dashboard to find anything you will need - one is a plug-in to add to WordPress - that will help you build your sties. Hope they help - they did me This one I wrote - deals with how to "close" for the result you want. Stay with it - you don't need a wish of good luck - you need a plea to study the material and stay at it no matter what - it will change your life and hopefully the people you touch with your message.

Thanks for the follow and I will check out these posts. What is the policy about talking about another company to someone? I also belong to another mom and would like to mention it to some.

Congratulations on choosing to become a premium member. But that's just your first small step - the real work starts now. Plan to work on your business every day - if you want to succeed you need to treat this seriously. You can do it - we all can do it - if we all put the work in, and support each other :-) I'm pretty new here myself, but if there is anything I can do to help please let me know.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

For my first niche I will just go with cloth diaper covers. I really want to do something about seniors citizens and a healthy lifestyle but I can't figure out how to word that. Because I think healthy lifestyle is too broad. What are your ideas?

And yes I did have some questions during my training, I asked them- and just like you and Carson had said the community was VERY helpful. I was VERY pleased. I have been scammed by many other work at home companies so I was a little worried about asking for help. This company is changing my outlook on work at home businesses,at least this business.

Great to hear you got help when you needed it, we truly are a helpful and supportive community with a ton of expertise here.

I do like your Nice choice and it sounds like something that you're interested in. I definitely don't think healthy lifestyle is a niche that is far too broad and not literally contains thousands of different niches within it.

ElaineSmith1 Premium
Maybe then I will try this niche next.

Sounds good Elaine! :) I look forward to working with you and if you ever need a hand with anything going forward, please get in touch with me. Chat soon!

PS. I hope you are looking forward to an absolutely fantastic week ahead! :)

Have a question for you. I would also like to promote Wealthy Affiliate so would "serving freelance affiliates" be a good title?
Reply
ElaineSmith1 Premium
I have decided to go with "triedandtrue" but should I add the word affiliate at the end of the title or not. Please give me some advice?
Reply
Kyle Premium
You definitely could and it would make it more relevant to affiliate marketing (if this is a bootcamp site you are building).
Reply
ElaineSmith1 Premium
Just wanted to know why I need to add the word "affiliate". I didn't understand that in the video so if you could explain that to me I would appreciate it. I will do that but I would like to know why.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Well what is your niche? Who are you targeting?

When you choose a domain, you are going to want to choose something that is "brandable" versus something that has keywords within it. The reason this is the case is because as you build out your website, you can target as many keywords as you like within the content (that is how you will rank).

I have created a discussion here outlining the process and what to look for when choosing a domain name: This should help you out here and if you ever want to run any domains by me, simply let me know and I will give you some feedback.

PS. You can host up to 25 of your own domains here within the Premium membership on our state of the art hosting platform. :)

This is confusing. I'm promoting a boot camp site. Want to name the website tried and true affiliate. What to show people that there are honest programs out there, not all are scams. So my niche is an honest program. I'm presenting it to stay at home moms wanting to earn some extra cash.
Reply
Kyle Premium
I think that that can certainly work. If this is the direction that you want to head, don't second guess yourself then and just roll with it. I think that will work out just fine. ;)

Hey there Elaine, welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.

Here are a few of my thoughts:

*If you should get stuck going through the lessons, find the GREEN button which keeps your place on each lesson.

*While going through lessons, if you have a question, scroll through the comments to see if your question is answered there

*Focus on your goals, keep them in front of you

*Stick with the lessons, don't skip anything because one mistake can cost you to be banned, or lose commissions.

*Connect with the community

Here's the first lesson: Keep this handy, hope this will help: Hope this helps,
RitaAnn~
