Really good to see that you've added some goals Geneva!

These are both realistic and achievable. Your time investment will be key to achieving these goals and you certainly are willing to invest the time :)

Take your time, take action on what you learn, and ask for help when you need it! There are many helpful folks within the Wealthy Affiliate community who have the answers you will be looking for. I personally look forward to helping out in every way I can.

Thank you so much for the encouragement!

Hi Geneva,

Hope you have enjoyed your first 24 hours here at WA, I wanted to pop by today and just give you a bit of direction here if you are feeling the slightest bit stuck.

There is “core” training at Wealthy Affiliate, which is called the Online Entrepreneur Certification. This is a very comprehensive course and is going to walk you through the process of building a business online.

By lesson 4 of this training you are going to understand the process of building a business online, you are going to have a direction chosen for your business, and you are going to have your very own niche website up and running.

A lot of the time I see people that are shy to “take action” simply because they worry they might do something wrong. I can assure you that there are no major mistakes that you can make, and you have help every step of the way if you ever need a hand with anything!

Here is a link to the course: (or click “Training” in the main menu, and choose the “Getting Started” course)

So, get rolling through the training, you will see your business take shape very quickly. And if you ever need a hand with anything at all ask for help... simply click "Reply" to this comment, and leave your reply below. I do my best to check in here a few times each day so I'll be here to help you out along with many other experts that are available 24/7 within the community.

Talk soon :-)
Hi Jay!
I feel like I'm coming into this completely blind..... I don't know exactly what the end game is and the "what" is it I'm trying to accomplish. I understand little of how affiliates work. I suppose that my answers will come more in the training videos..... Teachers don't always make the best students - haha! I do want to learn and more than willing to learn - just don't know what the object of the lesson is.

Hey Geneva, you're exactly right... how all the pieces come together will become more apparent in the training videos.

Having said that, the end game so to speak is to earn commissions from the sale of other people's products. That does not mean you are doing hard selling, these are products people are planning to buy already.

For example, if you were interested in guitars, your objective would to generate search engine (as well as social) traffic from people who are also interested in guitars. They may be interested in learning how to play the guitar and searching for an online course, and there are guitar courses out there with affiliate programs that will pay you a commission for recommending their course.

Sometimes you won't even recommend it but if you have an affiliate link that takes people to that course, some people will purchase it anyway and you would earn a commission.

You could also earn commissions on guitars and other related accessories through Amazon's affiliate program.

Of course, guitars are just one example. There are 100's of thousands of different niches you could choose and earn affiliate commissions.

Not sure if that explains it very well, but again, the training videos put all of the pieces together and give you a much better picture :-)
Yes, that helps a lot. I'm not at home until Sunday afternoon so I will be able to dive in once I get back home. Thank you so much for your quick response.

Hi, Genevalteal You must have great compassion and patients. I have a special sister whom I love very much, but she required great patience. Let's chat from time to time.
Hi jboi411!
Thank you for reaching out. I'm feeling a little lost right now, but am willing to give it a great effort!
How long have you been in this group?

I just started I haven't even finished the training.haha
I like it if I could stop buying domains. It quickly becomes an addiction. I thought then If an area matches that thought I buy it. Haha, it is crazy! hahaha

Hi Geneva...

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...

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.

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.

Just wanted to pop by and say hi. I realize you are probably just stepping into the platform & community here at Wealthy Affiliate, but I wanted to let you know that I am here to help you out if you ever need anything.

My immediate recommendation for you (outside of asking for help when you need it), is to start moving through the training under the “Training” menu. You will want to go into the Get Started Here” course.

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