Hi, I'm James Wilson and often go by the name "Jim" among friends and co-workers alike. I am very much into sci-fi and video-games in my spare time. I have been searching for ways to supplement and MAYBE even replace my current income, which does tend to fluctuate greatly from paycheck to paycheck. I have been employed in the retail business for 11 years now and am struggling to make ends meet. One day, while searching online for work at home job opportunities, I came across websites of people offering money-making ideas and "Programs" that seemed too good to be true. NONE of those programs offered anything for free to get started! I then heard about Wealthy Affiliate and began to check into it by reading what people had to say about it. I think this is legitimate and want to give it a try. My "Niche" is going to be about smartphones. I am firmly convinced that everyone should own one and as broad as this niche may sound, there are MANY topics that I can write about for a long time to come! After I can successfully get this niche-site up and running, I may explore other niche-ideas, such as a site promoting Wealthy-Affiliate and eventually a site dedicated to Star Trek, which is my favorite Sci-Fi Series! The sky is the limit here at Wealthy Affiliate and I am both glad and proud to be here! :)

Yes, this is only just the beginning, as I have yet to face the bigger challenge of being ranked in search engines :) This I do know Robert and I'm sure that it doesn't happen overnight. This is much easier to tackle however; with all of the awesome affiliate marketing minds here. Yourself included. Thank you for the help you provide to us all here everyday :)

Yes, getting ranked in the search engines will be a tougher step to achieve but it will happen eventually. Everyone gets there at different times and when you do, it will feel great.

Hi, James.
Paul Mindra here from Ontario, Canada.

Thank you for liking a comment I made on Belden's profile regarding PPC.

I have just clicked on the button where now I am following you.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. I have been here since May 2016.
Our program and community here is in fact completely legit.

You, like the most of us here have been mislead in the past with 'Get Rich Quick' online programs and have wasted a lot of time and money.

The philosophy here (in my opinion) is "First We Learn and then remove The 'L.'"

I always look at it now as 'The actual cost of Education.'

Check back to the response I am going to leave under your response and like to Belden.

Kindest regards,

Paul.

Hi, Jim. I enjoyed reading your bio. . Star Trek sounds like an excellent niche to me. I'm not a treckkie, but my brother's name is Kirk. Guess what his nickname is! Captain Kirk, of course!

I think you're on the right "course" with WA. I agree. Many of us have been scammed by other online "opportunities", but this is the real deal. Best wishes on your journey. Following you.

Thank you Carol, I do appreciate your kind words and wish you lots of success as well. I have however decided to go with another niche for the time being. I'm kind of facing a dilemma though and that is, I have only ONE DAY before my chat-privileges are taken away unless I upgrade to premium. I don't want to go premium until after my website starts producing income, then I will go premium for sure! I like what I have seen so far here at WA,there is a lot of support being given and also much to learn. Right now, I am at the stage where my website has been built, but I still need to write my blog and don't know quite how to go about that. How can I learn how to do this and still remain a starter-member? I'll have only ONE DAY to get community help before my premium trial-period ends. Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Jim W.

I had the same dilemma when I started, Jim. I decided to bite the bullet and go premium because I was lost without the help from the community. I am very low tech, and when a computer sees me coming, it says, "Let's act up and frustrate the heck out of her!"

I wanted to wait until my website was making enough money to pay for premium, but couldn't really function by myself. I would encourage you to go ahead and go premium if at all possible.

I doubt if I would have done anything with my website after the free time was up because I am so dependent on being able to ask questions. I get stuck very easily during the training because my screen doesn't match Kyle's, and I don't know how to do what he just showed me on the video. I have to ask for help pretty often.

If you can't swing it now, there's a possibility that there will be a "Black Friday Special" around Thanksgiving time. I happened to join about that time, and the special came available just about the time that my free time was up. So I jumped on it, because I was pretty lost floundering around by myself. Hopefully, Kyle and Carson will do the same thing again this year.

Good luck with whatever you decide to do.

Carol

I do understand your viewpoint on this and yes it is like having two people inside of me one says "Go premium " and the other says "No!" Wait until my website is making money,then go premium. Hopefully, I will see you all on the premium-side!☺

Hey James,

I forgot to mention the other day that I am going to still be offering you my awesome bonuses if you join within the next 4 days.

Here are the bonuses that you are going to be getting:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)
(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there. Where else can you access the CEO of the company for help?
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well James and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)

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! :)

Things are coming along little-by-little Kyle. I do plan on remaining at the starter level for awhile. Too bad I cant do this now as financial matters have yet to be resolved! I am very much liking what I'm seeing so far here at WA! Everyone seems willing to help everyone else. and there is PLENTY of training available. Robert has been a very big help to e as well and has helped alleviate a lot of my "Hebe-Jebees" so far! Thank you again Kyle for following up with me.

Hey Boomer, I'm glad to see that you are following up with me and I really appreciate that. there seems to be so much that is being offered here at WA that you could (And probably have! Lo!) write a book about! I have been VERY CAREFULLY looking for ways to supplement my income and am well aware of the scams that are out there. Since my time per day fluctuates greatly depending on my work-schedual,I can only dedicate inconsistent amounts of time here at WA. Make no mistake about it ever since I started looking at what affiliate marketing is and have seen videos of different affiliate marketing programs,some things were becoming quite clear. First of all, the other programs being offered were not free-to-join or give you your own web-site for free. WA does! I know that premium membership does seem to have a lot of advantages over starter-membership but I do want to remain as a starter-member for as long as I like Boomer. That way with the varying amount of time I have per day and the learning of something new to me like affiliate marketing, I can decide eventually weather or not to commit myself to paying for premium membership. I am mindful of my current financial state as well and it is from paycheck to paycheck! I'm sure that as time progresses and as my number of referrals increase,I will revisit the issue of premium-membership. Again, thank you for showing me what Kyle and Carson both testify to and that is you all are here to help. I just want to end my VERY long comment by asking this question. If I choose to do so, may I remain a starter member?

Like I said in my other comment, you can remain a starter member for as long as you like. Obviously you will not be able to take the full training as a starter but you can take the entire first 10 of 50 lessons and build 2 websites for free.

I realize you will have to save up money to become premium when you should decide to do so. When I started I remained a starter member for a little more than a month. I sold stuff on eBay and Craigslist to pay for premium but I took the yearly option.

I first went premium and got the first month discount of $19. I continued to pay an additional $49 for the next 2 months. Then I had saved up from my eBay and Craiglist sales enough to pay the yearly cost of $359, which saves us money.

I figured it this way. I could spend $19 for the first month and $49 for the next 11 months, spending a total of $558 or I could pay $359 once every year, saving me almost $200. Again, this is what I did. You will have to decide for yourself how you will proceed.

But like I said, there is no rush. The only thing that will hold you back is not being able to take full advantage of the entire training courses. You will however be able to gain some knowledge and that is always a good thing.

Jim, there are 2 KEY reasons why many of the make money online opportunities fail. They do not offer a robust training that teaches you EVERYTHING for one low price and they do not offer you all the help and support you need.

I would have to say that the majority of the members here at WA have experienced the same as you. I know I did. But once I joined WA, took the free 10 lessons of the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course, I knew in my heart that WA was the real deal.

That was August 2013. By mid 2014 I was making consistent monthly income that supplemented my 9 to 5 job income. I kept learning and growing my websites and by 2015 it became enough to quit my 9 to 5. But it did and does require commitment.

Everything you need for success is all under one roof here at WA. The only thing WA cannot provide is your determination to reach your goals. The nice thing about the membership cost here is that it is less than $50 per month and your first month is discounted at $19.

I know I could not find a cheaper price for a real legitimate opportunity online like I found here at WA. Plus I was able to really start for free. No one else does that! So if you need any questions answered, just click reply below and I will help you with an answer.

I found the answer to my question about remaining as a starter-member in one of Kyle's messages, and I know premium offers so much more. I do want to continue though with my current game-plan for now.

You can stay a free starter member for as long as possible. I remained a starter member for a month before I upgraded. Plus the first month discount to premium will always be available.

So there is no-pressure time-sensitive limit here to get the first-month discount? That's great! It goes against those other programs I have seen that give you a discount only for a limited time. I call it "Pressure-Psychology!"
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
For marketing purposes it may seem that there is a time limit on the first month discount but there really is no limit on it. You will get the discount whenever you decide to upgrade.

However there is a limit on the ability to get Live Help via Live Chat and 1 on 1 coaching. These are only available for the first 7 days. See attached image for the differences between free starter and premium memberships.

Hello James! This is Robert, call-sign boomergp08 again. I'm just checking in to see if you need any help to get yourself started on your journey to owning your very own online business.

The one thing that people feel when they first sign up is that they may be in too far over their heads. When I first joined I wasn't sure if this was going to actually work because I was burned by pie-in-the-sky scams before. But then I said to myself, Robert, it was truly free to start up. I didn't even need to give any credit or debit card information. How bad can it be?

So I decided to try the training. My thinking was, I had nothing to lose. But I would be a loser at this if I didn't at least try it out. So I did and I was pleasantly surprised at how simple and easy it was to build a website.

I mean come on! All you do is create a domain name, name your website, select a theme which is what your website could look like and then click the button to build my website and within 30 seconds, YES I SAID 30 SECONDS, my website was built with 4 installed plugins, ready to go!

Take a look at the below video to see how simple it is. If you have any questions James let me know by leaving a question on my profile page.
