Hello! Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate and congratulations for choosing the Premium Plan rather than staying in Free Plan.

To me it sounds you're really serious with building your own online business and earn a steady passive income from the niche you love.

Given, I encourage you to take the training seriously and spend time to build your website and content that your readers love as well as your potential business partners. This won't be an overnight process.

You need to understand that building a lifelong business such as earning passive income entails a lot of consistent hard work without self-doubt. Not an inch of it.

With tenacity and consistent practice of doing your best, you will receive a pleasant reward in the end. If you have questions, feel free to send me a message. I'll be happy to help each other out.

Again, congratulations and welcome for being here. Have a nice day! Let's keep in touch. :)

Cheers,

Mecyll

Welcome and congratulations on becoming a Premium member! You have made a great decision and you will not regret it.

If you haven't already noticed, the community support is amazing and the training is just out of this world (well the internet world, lol).

Anyway, as the saying goes: You Only Live Once, so make this the best thing that has ever happened in your life.

I am happy to be part of your network and to be part of your story here at WA.
Best wishes,
Saane

Glad that you joined us. 

Wealthy Affiliate is an amazing environment to learn and apply our skills towards creating an online business. I tried to do this alone before and was completely lost. 

Now I know why. 

There are so many tricks of the trade and it saves so much time having it all laid out clearly in its training programs. 

Keep following the training and exercises every day. Give it a year to see significant results. You'll be a happy camper by then. We all make progress at different rates and it is possible to see meaningful results in 4-6 months. Google cannot be rushed. 

Google rewards people with websites that provide value to their visitors. It helps to boost their ad revenue of course! And that helps your websites get high rankings. But it takes time to build credibility. Once they realize your site is an authority site, good things will happen faster. 

When you get stuck, and you will, just ask for help in the discussion area located below each lesson. Scroll down to find it. Another member who has the answer will get back to you promptly. 

In the meantime have fun with the program. Much success to you.

Cheers!

Edwin

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! :)

Hi Frank...

There's a lot here at Wealthy Affiliate to take in, so I just wanted to follow up on my previous message and provide a quick "orientation" of sorts.

The community is also available to help if you need anything, and... Kyle or Carson (Wealthy Affiliate's co-founders) often stop by and welcome new members. Just hit reply to any of our messages if you need anything.

A quick reminder of what you're getting today for free...

>> 10 over-the-shoulder step-by-step lessons showing you exactly how to make money online. These lessons including videos, text, progress checklists and forums to ask questions.

Here's the link to those... >> Your'e also getting private access to me for 1-on-1 help.

>> Community access so you can talk to and learn from industry experts.

>> Access to member's blogs, many who have documented their journey and tell you exactly what it's like... their struggles and successes.

>> Your own free websites (for lifetime... these are NOT just trial websites)

>> A live example of the money making process.

>> You’re going to see a real example in the training of a simple website in a weird niche that had no competition (until it was shown here) and still brings in $400 - $1000 a month in passive income.
(No... it's not a ton of money but this is passive income from a simple website that requires very little maintenance).

>> You'll learn how you can turn "your" passions and interests into completely independent passive income. This is NOT some MLM product. You will learn how to create your business in your own niche and under your full control.

In fact, no one here even has to know what your business is about unless you share it, but that's your choice.

>> You're also getting some really helpful online tools that make what we do here way easier than it used to be.


A couple other things to keep in mind...

One...
---------
Don't be afraid to reach out to me or the community for help, everyone here is extremely helpful and it is truly a rare opportunity. This is an exclusive community with many members who have years of valuable knowledge and experience and they are happy to share.

As I mentioned above, you can even read their personal blogs which in a lot of cases document their progress and tell you what they've learned, the mistakes they've made and the success they've had.

For anyone who really wants to make money online, this information is absolutely critical.

As you probably know, there are two main reasons most people fail online... the first is the most obvious - fake "gurus" and scams.

The second is that people try to do this all on their own.

I can't stress how important it is to have a community around you and that the members here... especially the super affiliates, are sharing their knowledge and experience with you, but they DO NOT have anything financially to gain from you.

They are only giving back to the community that taught them how to be successful too.

I need to say that again because it's so important.

They are not sharing information with the purpose of getting something out of you. This is NOT like watching someone's "webinar" on YouTube where they try to sell you something after.

This is an entirely "spam free" place where we all hang out. No one is going to promote or sell you anything.

You also won't find any ads or offers here, with one exception...

Sometimes you'll see some exclusive offers for starter members to try out the premium membership, or occasionally the membership prices go on sale (Black Friday for example)... but those are exclusive Wealthy Affiliate offers...

... this is not place for other members to promote their products or sell anything.

Two...

You can always get access to me for one-on-one help by leaving a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/j-kwest (as well as responding directly to this message).

I know you're probably skeptical, and I can promise you, I was too. I joined Wealthy Affiliate in October 2016 and I just didn't believe a place like this existed online.

But I'm still here and because of Wealthy Affiliate I have not had a boss in a long time.

Once you start going through the training like I did though, and meeting some of the other members you'll find out this is the real deal.

And you're not alone. We all had doubts when we started.

Before you go, I'd just like to ask if you can respond quickly to this message with just a few words so I know you made it inside the community? I'd like to connect with you so I can keep an eye out for your questions this week.

I look forward to getting to know you and following your success. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if there's something you need.

Hey Jay,
I appreciate you getting in touch with me. I am somewhat overwhelmed, I think. I started the training and then realized that I know very little about any of this (you would think I would have known that already). Anyway, I see there is separate training known as Affiliate Boot-camp. Do I go the certification route or the boot-camp route? I would like to promote WA. I am having trouble landing on a niche also. I was thinking something to do with pets but I know that is probably eaten up by now. Seems so confusing to me.

Hey Frank, no worries... we were all overwhelmed at one point :-) When I started I had some of the technical experience but the affiliate marketing side was completely new to me.

Pets is actually a great niche, we just need to find the right angle/audience and sub-niche, meaning we don't want to focus on all pets. We want to narrow it down to a specific pet, and then if possible, a specific audience with a problem that they're having with their pet.

Maybe a particular breed of dog has specific issues that are unique for example.

Ultimately, our goal is to help people solve a specific problem. You can branch out from there down the road but to start you want to get laser focused on a segment of your niche that you can dominate.

It's easy to think of the internet with a gazillion websites and all this noise... but as you narrow your niche to a specific audience and a specific problem they're having you find that the "noise" quiets down and you might only have a dozen or so real competitors.

And then you slowly chip away at that...

I'd start with the online certification training first and if you want to do the bootcamp training later, you can.

You're going to find more of the basics in the OEC training. And don't worry about being overwhelmed. Like I say, we all started out that way but slowly the pieces come together and it begins to make sense.

And we're here to help you along the way :-)

Welcome! I just wanted to stop by and say Hi. I know you're probably just getting your first look inside the platform and community here at Wealthy Affiliate, but I wanted to let you know I'm here to help you out if you ever need anything.

My immediate recommendation (outside of asking for help when you need it) is to start with the "Get Started Here" button in the training menu which will quickly walk you through the platform and give you a tour around.

I'll touch base again shortly but again, please don't hesitate to reach out for help :-)
