I switched to Bootcamp because I really didn't have a clear vision of a niche. The training basics overlap so it just depends what you want your website to be about. Debbie

Certification Course

Start with the certification course. There is a natural 'cross road' there if you are thinking about promoting WA first.

Hi Gary. I believe that you would be better off by completing the Certification course first. Then the WA Bootcamp would make more sense! Cheers

You should only do the bootcamp course if you wish the promote WA for your niche. That is the main purpose of bootcamp.

If you have a different niche you wish to promote, then you should be doing the certification courses.

Whatever you do, do not do both at the same time. This will be counter-productive in that certain aspects are different and you will not have adequate time to build two effective websites at the same time.

Plus, if you want to promote WA, you should still do the certification courses first. You will have a better understanding of what WA really is, and how can you promote WA properly if you do not know the benefits of WA?

I started the Certification Course then the Bootcamp one. I did the same as Susan while trying to do both and just became confused. I am now concentrating on Certification.

Good luck

So you are going to complete the Certification Sharon, before you go back to Bootcamp?

I started both, but found I was avoiding my lessons and spending too much time on the social side of WA .
The reason I was avoiding my lessons was because I found the Bootcamp a bit too challenging for me.
I am back focussed on the Certification course and back to my feeling of being able and capable.
I believe that the Bootcamp will be easier once I have the fundamentals from the Certification course under my belt.
If you are comfortable, confident and tech savvy, then you might want to do the Bootcamp first.
Either way, it is all great stuff!
Best of luck deciding!

You are queit right, I have reached level 3 lesson 8 then started bootcamp, and I have to say that certification did prepare me well for bootcamp.

Starting with the certification seems to be the best in that it lays the foundation to developing your online business.

Thank you Veronica
I started with certification am at level 3 lesson 8 still waiting for google adsense to approve me, but they can never seem to find my site online in 4 attempts, so I climbed into boot camp for the time being.

I was rejected by AdSense on my first attempt; I may reapply in another month or two.

I would encourage you to complete the certification and just reapply for Google AdSense later. From what I remember, course 4 was really about social media; course 5 gave some great tips on writing.

Hey Anthony

I think the certification is a bit better for initial training or for someone who does not have interest in initially promoting an affiliate marketing website as their 'main' website. Bootcamp training seems a bit more extensive and the pace seems a bit faster.

I started with Bootcamp and then decided to move over to certification.

Hello Steven
I Went the other way, and I agree that bootcamp seems more intense now that I am in it.

The way I understand this, it to start with the certification first and add the affiliate as you need it.

Hello John
That is what I did, but I recently started bootcamp and the stuff you learn there seems to be more relevant to making money.

It depends on your niche. If you have one already, then you can get started on the Certification; if not, then go ahead and start the Affiliate Bootcamp.

Best of luck Gary.
