"HELLO to EVERYONE at W.A.!!!" I am extremely excited to join Wealthy Affiliates and learn as much as I can, meet all of "YOU" ~ get to know everyone and become one of WA's success stories!!! Of course with lots of hard work and dedication!!!
I am needing to work from home because I suffer with epilepsy, leaving me unable to drive and on disability. But... I am very capable using my power of hard earned knowledge, computer, my personal marketing and sales experience. I am not a bit shy on reaching out nor asking for help for getting referrals from my thousands of influential contacts in major companies across the country and some globally in my social marketing world as well as personal contacts, you guys at WA, as I begin this new adventure!
All I see is SUCCESS!!!

I I am an extremely motivated individual who is all about happiness and being thankful & gracious for each and every moment in life as well as being blessed with my three handsome and respectful teenage sons that I am ever so proud of! I am blessed with an amazing husband which I have been happily married for over 16 years now. We live in a small and wonderful community called Frontenac, Kansas. Go RAIDERS!!! Very well known for our Academics and Sports statewide! It is almost like a private school, like the best kept secret in Kansas, as it was described to us when we came here. We love it! We belong to the local Catholic church. I converted several years ago and my family followed later from being Christian. I liked the path to becoming Catholic, because you actually had to work at it for an entire year, not just sign a piece of paper to join. It meant more to me. My boys take their religion very seriously, especially during lent... they make us look bad!!! lol

I am very extremely OCD & a quite the perfectionist!!! Ask my poor husband and boys... I know I drive them crazy. I personally like this quality about me, because I tend to push myself beyond all limits, work even harder and become even more tenacious! I am very detail oriented. I am a true Scorpio by heart!!! Ha! I am a very loyal friend to all and love being around people as well as all my friends on all different routes on social media.

I love scrapbooking, designing burlap flower bouquets and other items for weddings, crafts, woodworking, baking from scratch, cooking, cleaning my house, exercising, keeping up with the election ~ this past year... ugh and it has made me grow white hair!!! lol Trump fan!!! Republican all the way! Love going to my boys games, which they play every sport possible all year long, as well as being on travel teams at the same time... on the go constantly!!!

Ready to get started training and learn as much as possible to become a success!!! Not going to rush anything, I know it takes time to accomplish and be your best!
I absolutely wish each and everyone of you the very best in 2017 with your health, family, love, happiness and prosperity!!!

Hi Carla:

Nice to meet you and many thanks for following me. How are things going so far? I too am a mother of teenage sons and they are great. I like your profile about happiness and always being gracious. And, I can so relate to the part about being OCD - I look at it as a gift, because if we use it correctly, we can reach our goals. But yes, everyone else will be driven crazy. :)

Thanks again for connecting. I of course am following you as well.

Steph

Hey Carla,

perhaps it is better to post this message as a question to the WA community. Click on the pen, between the envelop and your ranking. I'm sure some more experienced people will be able to help you further!
I'm not sure somebody is supposed to call you via WA!? So I would ignore the phone calls. I hope you'll find the time to build your website.
Do you already have a niche?

And remember this should be fun to do, so try to enjoy it as much as possible ;)

YOU'LL GET THERE!!

Waiting for him to respond back and I also asked him to direct me in the right direction on how to handle my phone call. I am always prepared and it's driving me crazy. thanks for your help!!!

Thank you so much Lady May!!! I am already so swamped just on LinkedIn, with some interested in possibly joining then I have Careington International Corpooration from LinkediIn that the SVP Strategic Partnership has been in contact with me and we have a phone call this afternoon. It's Dentalzpass, Visionpass and Hearingpass. I have got to get in contact with someone to see what kind of fees and everything or % I would charge. I am not sure of exactly what he wants me to do... UGH I will contact Kyle. Then yesterday I had a recruiter from Allstate offer me $10,000 per agent I found that they would hire in 2 different cities in GA... I cannot keep up and I am trying to get everything organized on my profiles to get my site built but I am feeling extremely overwhelmed. I will check out your blog, and share some things I have come across!!! Looking forward to getting know ya girly. Love your name!

Hello Carla,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link on the right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Thanks for the follow, Carla! I used to be a huge scrapbooker and rubber stamper...maybe again sometime (I walked by a rubber stamp store here in Santa Fe NM tonight and actually didn't go in...a big deal for me. I'm into crocheting and creating cork art (a couple of folk art crafts) now (corks as in from leftover wine corks). Cheers to awesome success to you now and always! Glad you're here!

OMG!!! Scrapbook Queen myself!!! I never get to meet anyone with that same passion!!! So, Hello fellow scrapbooker!!! I know what you mean about not being tempted to go into a freaking scrapbook store!!! $$$ cha-ching!!! We used to have one here but thank heaven's it closed for my wallets sake!!! It is so very expensive by the time you actually buy all the materials & tools needed!!! I never used the machines, I have a puncher set for letters and numbers, then I use all different sizes and fonts of chipboard letters, trace them and carefully & precisely cut them out. I use to design a full scrapbooks annually for all the grandmothers for Christmas of my three boys, but they are all pretty much gone now. I used to design my own handmade cards, but when some people just do not recognize the effort and time you put into it, like it is just "another card".. grrr Quit doing that!!! But I have enjoyed making posters for my sons when running for government positions in the class and other things. I just did a whole design on "Starbucks" for a baby shower for a friend of mine who is a Starbucks ADDICT!!! LOl
Anyways, sorry to ramble on about a true passion of mine. Nice to meet you and I look forward to getting to know you better! Best wishes to you!!!

I have successful track record in using leverage in consultative-sales and strengths to identify opportunities and be able to effectively negotiate and close deals.I have an impressive reputation in following up and keeping in contact with all leads, building that needed rapport and trust to close deals quickly and efficiently, as well as making them a customer for life.
Perhaps most importantly, I offer a history of proven results, as evidenced with my background experience in Managing, a Senior Vice President in Online Marketing and Training, Banking, Insurance, Sales, Training and Teaching Classes from 30 people to Corporate Size of 6 Offices, Web Designing and Real Estate.
I believe that I am extremely assiduous, tenacious, organized, detail oriented, and ready to assume responsibility. I have a proven history of surpassing customers and employers expectations. I am a top-performing producer focused on impeccable service delivery, sales and accountability for goal achievement. I am an expert in the technical, conceptual and content development of sales-driving collateral with a proven ability to produce record high sales and profits. I take great pride in researching and learning as much as I can about a company beforehand, so that I will have a wealth of knowledge of their products and services they offer, as well as the history of their company. Then I can better market them and their products and/or services to my clients for an increase in profits as well as build a bigger base of clients daily.
I am successfully capable to to take any leadership team within your business and augment them with my experience and accomplished marketing professional breakthrough results.

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! :)

I have already signed up for premium. What does it cost for Amazon affiliate programs? I have a few other affiliate programs that I am waiting to hear back from, kind of picky and I am taking the book camp just to learn more. I have many ideas for niches, but I keep getting sidetracked from my from my contacts on LinkedIn. Sorry.

Amazon is free to join. All affiliate programs should be completely free to join and as you move into Level 3 of the training this is going to be covered in a lot more detail. :)

I have signed on as an affiliate with LawDepot that gives over 100 legal documents to 4 countries and I need to learn how to input deep links and use "content Publishing" . They have all the banners and information for free for me. I pay nothing and get a 30% commission. I have a background as a paralegal and my bachelors was in criminal justice and psychology, so this is very "real" and easy for me. I have signed into their site and printed off what I need and I know how to get access to pretty much everything and they offer tons of help, plus I am friends with the lady I am communicating with on LinkedIn. So Legal Forms are going to be my "NICHE" . How do I go about picking a domain name that is best and a website. I just want to finally get started with completing this step and get started. Also, How do you avoid running up high fees with Google wordad? It says a minimum of $10 per day, but possibly not profiting. Thanks for your help. Once I get this going I will feel better.

You will be able to integrate these into your website as you build out your content. As I mentioned, establish your website and work to get free traffic (through rankings and SEO which you are going to be taught) before getting into the PPC side of things.

That can come down the road.

Hi Carla,

Brad here again. I just wanted to followup with a specific example of an advanced strategy you can take advantage of here at Wealthy Affiliate that is not possible anywhere else.

First, I noticed that you have not yet completed your account setup. Setting up your profile is key to getting the most out of Wealthy Affiliate. This is your calling card when it comes to contributing to the community and getting other members here to help you out learning strategies like the one I will explain here in this post. People are just less likely to respond to "invisible" people.

To complete your setup, go into your profile page (click the box to the right side the blue Rank box at the top right of any page in Wealthy Affiliate to get there). From the top of that page, click the big green "Edit Your Profile Here" button to enter a bit about yourself and your goals.

Then click on the green "Add an Image Here" button to upload an image of yourself or your dog or anything really that you would like people to associate with you. Some people change their images frequently just for fun, like rotating between their favorite Star Trek characters or whatever.

Ok, back to the advanced strategy I promised.

A somewhat little known fact about Wealthy Affiliate is that the internal blog system here ranks highly in Google. If you are in your profile page reading this, then you should see a "My Blog" link at the top of the page. Go there and simply click on the big blue "Create a new blog" button to create your first blog post.

This is different from your own free blogs that you will create here using SiteRubix. The most well known aspect of the My Blog feature is that all your followers within Wealthy Affiliate will be notified of your new posts. That is how most people think about it and how they use it.

However, with the My Blog feature the blog posts you create show up directly on http://my.wealthyaffiliate.com. The posts are accessible there by anyone (no need for them to be a WA member). According to the backlink checker I use, http://my.wealthyaffiliate.com has over 35,000 backlinks pointing to it from other websites. Type site:my.wealthyaffiliate.com into Google and you will find it has over 400,000+ pages indexed in Google. This makes it an authority site and gives it ranking power in Google.

Even better, when non-members access your WA blog posts from google you automatically get credit if they signup for Wealthy Affiliate (e.g. your WA cookie gets set even without your affiliate link, you get credit based on the fact that they visited your WA blog post).

And it gets even better. When non-members visit your WA "My Blog" posts, if they click on a link on that page it automatically opens a signup form for Wealthy Affiliate, where you get credit for that referral in the WA affiliate program (with average commissions of $118). Even if they don't click on a link, that signup form pops up after 15 or 20 seconds of arriving on that page. Outside visitors can either signup or close the popup and continue reading your blog post. You can see how this works by creating your own WA blog post and visiting that page in a browser where you are not logged in to WA.

There is no other program out there that allows you to write posts directly on their authority site and make commissions from those posts. In your other promotions you can link to your My Blog posts without using your affiliate link, since you get credit anyway. There can be various advantages to this, as you will learn in later training here at WA.

The only caveat to this strategy is your My Blog posts should be helpful to the other WA members. You can't blog about dog training for instance, it should be about affiliate marketing, blogging and online business topics.

However, since it is all optimized to support you in making money from the WA affiliate program, this isn't really a downside. Just use your SiteRubix niche sites to promote niche topics like dog training, and use your WA Blog as (one way) to promote the WA affiliate program. For example, you could use one of your free Site Rubix sites for a favorite niche topic, and one for an online business related niche to promote the WA affiliate program.

Here is a link that explains more about how to make the most of this strategy:
Here is the next step in that training that shows how one WA Blog post is ranking in Google: Hope that helps!

Thanks so much Brad! Sorry that I have not yet been in contact, been really sick with the flu and a severe sinus infection for over a week and a half. Just getting started last night with WA!!! I am printing off all this information to go back to that you provided me with on blogging and getting referrals.

Hi Carla,

I'm glad you made it! After you begin to see the powerful tools, training, and remarkable opportunities available here, I know you will be glad also.

My name is Brad, and like you, I joined Wealthy Affiliate not too long ago. In my over 10 years of earning money online, I have never seen anything that comes close to what Wealthy Affiliate has to offer. Beyond giving you everything you need to succeed as an affiliate in your area of interest, you can also promote Wealthy Affiliate as an affiliate:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/share

With a strong recurring commission structure, and a product that people love, this is a dream affiliate program that you now have access to as a Starter Member. Although it is worth noting that the commissions are double for Premium Members, so the premium upgrade is worth considering for that reason alone if you decide to pursue this aspect of Wealthy Affiliate. To learn more, click the black "Affiliate Bootcamp" button at the top left of this page.

If you are new to making money online, it will take you awhile to fully appreciate everything that Wealthy Affiliate has to offer. If you have been struggling to get things working with your online business, then be prepared for some "light bulb moments" as you go through the training and begin to understand how the Wealthy Affiliate platform can accelerate your results.

I will follow up with you in a few days to give you a concrete example of an excellent advanced strategy that is possible here at Wealthy Affiliate. This is a strategy that is simply not possible anywhere else (check this page for that update in a few days).

In the meantime, I would suggest you take the following 3 steps:

1. Complete your profile with a brief description of your goals, and of course with a nice photo of your smiling face! This makes a huge difference when interacting with the community here.

2. For a quick look at how easy it is to setup your first website (which is the basis for any online business), I highly recommend you take a look at Kyle's excellent video on creating your first website right here within Wealthy Affiliate in under 30 seconds (yes, this really is possible!): 3. Complete the free training lessons and videos to get started with your first niche website. Just click on the green "Get Started Here" button on the top left side of the page.

If you have any questions along the way, take advantage of the live chat and the question area at the bottom of each training module. There are many members here willing to help out.

Even before that however, the search bar at the top of the page is great for finding answers. That is what I use the most. WA has been in business for over 10 years, so almost any question you can think of has been asked and answered already. The search bar is great for finding those answers.

Have fun in your first few days at Wealthy Affiliate!

Brad
