Great to see you as a premium member. There are lots of members you can ask questions of if you need any help and encouragement. You will be able to get an answer to any question, its a great community here.
Just follow the training and it will all make sense as you are taken through step by step.

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.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Premium!

Glad that you joined us.

WA 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 the WA 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

Going premium unlocks all the amazing features on WA and it shows another how committed you are to learn. I would like to congratulate you for taking it to another level. I took the training here in 2015 and has changed my life and the people around me. I look forward to hearing about your success story soon. Personally, I call WA my home.
What is the one thing you like about WA so far?

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 Hilary...

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.

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 :-)

Jay
