Hey Gisela,

You tried "SiteBuilder" > "On a free domain" and that didn't work?

It MIGHT be a browser issue. I recommend trying another browser.

There are some great discussions and excited members wanting to start their journey with Wealthy Affiliate. A member asked me recently how I would structure my day with Wealthy Affiliate.

I replied that it varied from individual to individual. There may be members who are working on their business part- time and some full time.

This is how I structure my day on my business.
I spend two or three hours in the morning watching a webinar, and work on the certification course. I then have an energy break
for an hour. I do another two hours on my website until lunchtime.

From 5pm to 7pm only, I will link up with members by giving feedback and comments on their websites. This I do on a daily basis it works for me I need that structure every day.

What works for You and how do you structure your time around Wealthy Affiliate.?

Regards Richard

What are webinar and certification courses?
Reply
Rich908 Premium
Hi Clive

The webinar and certification courses are for premium members who pay a monthly subscription or a yearly subscription.

Once you are a paid up member you get access to all materials, tools and webinars which will boost your business.

Any other questions give me a shout

Kind regards

Richard

Ah yes I understand Richard and I will be a premium member soon. So do I have to watch the videos to build up my website? Is in not possible to do a word step by step tutorial instead?

I am also back and looking forward to getting started, I also have a question about an newer Membership. Can someone help me, I came back and stared as a starter member for the $19.00 and had loaded 2 Web Sites into that membership, now that I have upgraded to Premium I am in an older account from 2 years ago and cannot access my Web Sites so they are not active.

I need to access them from the other account, I would appreciate any help you can give me.

Thanks

The first thing I suggest you do is look around the place a bit. Start following people and introducing yourself. This is like a big University everyone works at their own pace, but you have access to thousands of knowledgeable people to help you if you get stuck. You can begin your setup by clicking certification top left hand corner in green. Read each lesson and complete each task. If you upgraded to premium you can click the black button to take you to the boot camp section. I suggest baby steps if you are brand new to online marketing. Remember this is not a get rich quick program. This is a long term business that will bring you much joy and recurring payments. Best of Luck!

To Your Success

Almost everybody here has been scammed in some way, so you're not alone on that count. Remember that this is not a get-rich-quick scheme - you'll be learning all the fundamentals of building, operating, and adjusting a website, along with good basic business fundamentals. I suggest you start at the beginning (green certification tab at the top left of your WA homepage), follow the directions for all the lessons, and then branch out as you gain confidence in the system and your own abilities. Welcome, and best wishes for your success!

Take each lesson one step at a time. Kyle has built in breaks for you as well in the training. It's easy to begin to want to jump ahead as you read posts on the activity dashboard, but step back from it when you feel it's too much. It can be overwhelming!

I am a bit 'overloaded' at this stage. I am trying to do baby steps and go through 'Getting started'. Is it enough to get me through? ( I have no idea about internet marketing and I have to look up meanings of computer jargon).

Yesterday I chanced into another member's contributions on lessons about Niches. Do I have to go through them before sitting down and digest everything and start thinking about the niche? Or it is not necessary?

Hello WA Support Family, I'm so excited to be part of this owesome team. Being a new member here I'm struggling in getting started in setting up a domain. My domain is www.howtobecomefinanciallysuccessfulonline.com however I feel that it's a little bit long, can someone assist me on how to make it shorter. It's still in SiteRubix but I want to transfer it to be my main domain. I wonder how do I go about making it shorter without starting over again. I had already worked on it a little bit before going premium.

lucas57 Premium
Basically you're filling out a few static pages on your website. These will be pages which wont really change much over time. Most of the activity on a site these days comes from blogs postings, comments from them, sharing of postings and more interactive things.
I have a HOME page, ABOUT ME and a CONTACT page and one other page explaining what my site does.
Once all this is done, you'll start creating postings, getting comments and sharing the post on social media, this is where you'll start to get noticed.
