Thank you. Warning, you may well be hearing from me for help sometime... From what I've seen so far, sounds like you know your stuff.

I had a class on XHTML and JavaScript, but what I needed was PHP for this stuff. I tried to change my footer once and blew up my site. Couldn't log back in to fix it. So they deleted the info and got me back in. But I'm not done messing with it yet. Just going to tip-toe a little lighter next time hopefully... If you'd like to peek at it and make any suggestion, I'm at HerbsOfEarth.com .

Thanks again.

Thanks, Could be better. To those who taught me, I'm a very beginner, to those who half way get into it, I'm competition, to those who don't get into it at all, I'm a Master.. I know I've only scratched the surface. But I'll never stop learning about herbs and their uses.

I'm not sure exactly where to put this comment! It looks like I cannot reply specifically to the last comment you made...hmm. Lol, at any rate, I wanted to say I think it is fantastic that you will never stop learning about herbs and their uses. I have a chronic illness and have looked at about everything you can imagine, under the sun, for relief from pain and inflammation (only two of the hundreds of symptoms I have). I was delighted to find that by taking Olive Leaf and Spirulina (I know this isn't an herb, but still natural) that many of my stomach issues associated with my illness, have been drastically reduced. I am no longer having stomach cramps, heartburn, and am able to swallow without any issues. I think alternative healthcare (which doesn't seem so alternative anymore!) can definitely be one piece of the puzzle for some of those who are chronically ill. Definitely a huge market for it for sure. :)

Hey Frank how are things going so far? I just thought I would check in and see how you are getting along so far. I hope all is well and you are enjoying yourself here within the community.

I know there is a lot for you to take in at once and I don't want you to feel overwhelmed when you are starting out. I am here to help you out if you ever need a hand with anything. Just let me know and I would love to point you in the right direction and get you started.

Hi Scott, I have just got on to Jaaxy and got some keywords and I'm taking the next step here real quick. I already had a niche in mind before I found WA, in fact I have been talking about doing this for the last 2 years at a community college so finding this was just what I needed to get moving on it. I did 160 hours with Joomla for my internship, (similar to WordPress) but learning PHP would have helped me out with that. I'm not too good with coding though, so this really helps a lot.

Thanks for checking on me though, I am trying to do this and get it going and I'm doing some Drop Shipping too on the side. I really want this to take off but I want to do it right. I have been interested in doing Affiliate Marketing but it was only brushed over in college. Not as in depth as I would have liked. This on the other hand seems like it will fill in the gaps.

So thanks again, I may just be bugging you in the near future to help me out if I get stuck.

Hi Frank,
You sound like you have a pretty good background in this stuff already. That will help you out tremendously here at WA, you won't need to know any code to get started here. I have been here for over a year and I have only messed with coding a couple of times. Your main focus should be on writing content for your site.

I'm glad that you are taking the next step and progressing along in the training. Everything you need to know about affiliate marketing is here at WA. Feel free to message me anytime Frank with any questions you may have and I would love to answer them for you and help you out.
Scott

Hello Frank and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!! My name is Scott and I am here to help you get started making money online. Before you even think about making money though I want to let you know about a few things that is critical to your success here at WA.

1. You are building a business and this will take quite some time. You are not going to see success overnight or in a week. It will happen but you need to work really hard at this and devote some time to it each day.

2. You need to have a schedule that you can stick with and be able to work on this for at least 30 minutes everyday.

3. Set yourself some goals that you would like to work towards. These should be financial goals along with non-financial goals. You can list your financial goals by adding them to the following discussion here. https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/getting-started/what-are-your-money-goals By doing this it tells me that you really are serious about making money online and not just curious.

4. If you want to have a successful website that is going to get ranked for lots of awesome low competition keywords. You are going to need a keyword research tool that is reliable, accurate, and is always up to date. With Jaaxy you will get all of this, and so much more. You can sign up for your Free trial account at www.jaaxy.com and get your first 30 searches for Free.

5. Try to not get discouraged or overwhelmed because there is lots of information for you to learn here. There is plenty of help here within the community so if you ever get stuck or need any help pop over to live chat and ask questions.

HOW TO SETUP YOUR ACCOUNT

Step 1. Upload a picture of yourself, This doesn't have to be a picture of yourself but it helps people get to know you better here.

Step 2. Write a little bit about yourself in your Bio. You could use this area to introduce yourself to the community and tell a little about what you would like to achieve within WA.

Filling out your profile is a very important step in getting started here. You will get 10 times more help when you do this. People feel like they can connect with you on a personal level and they are more inclined to follow you as well.
