Hey there, my name is Kevin and great to meet you here within the Wealthy Affiliate community! :)

I am a proud dad of a little girl (Skylar, in the pic with me) and it's a great privilege to work my business around my family.

I have been in the home business and online marketing industry for several years now. In that time, I built a successful home business and a few which were not so successful.

I am now looking to further my development with the help of WA and looking forward to network with like-minded people seeking success!

I use to work as a lawyer for a bank in London but got made redundant due to the company relocating.

In a way it proved to be a blessing to lose my job as I was never completely happy working in the legal profession...daily commute, office politics, etc.

I wanted to do my own thing, be my own boss and build a secure financial future for my family. As it turned out a job was not the way to go!

I started to look at home business opportunities where I could create an income similar to what I was earning in my career and joined a well known MLM company.

After 12 months I was earning the same monthly as I was earning monthly in my job. Yes it took 12 months. I needed to learn and develop the skills required to earn the same income.

To make money in this industry takes time, effort and investment.

WA is not a get rich quick overnight scheme (if 'get rich overnight schemes' existed I dare guess many would be doing them) instead solidly building an online business with WA requires keeping focused and working smart on your goals EVERYDAY!

It's similar to doing a 3/4 year college degree. You progress as you learn step by step and succeed when you know enough.

I also found that you learn most through trial and error. By making mistakes we learn and we then have the opportunity to correct them through experience. We learn new things everyday. That is the point of life to love, learn, grow and evolve.

I was fortunate to work a while with the late Internationally renowned business philosopher Jim Rohn who provided some valuable advice to me which I will never forget, he said

"work harder on yourself than you do on your job or business and the rewards will come."

These words stayed with me and the point is to keep your mindset strong at all times especially when you experience challenges.

Having your own online business is great fun, particularly if you have a passion for it. It's like most things in life, “do what you love to do” and you will enjoy the journey much more.

If this is for you…then take the leap of faith and remember there are many experienced people within the WA community to help you along the way.

Please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to help :)

As Jim would say, "Lets do this together."

To our Success!

Kevin

Hey Assamba, I'm a real person for sure :) You'll need to contact Bluehost customer support and explain that you can't add Amazon Associate affiliate links onto your WordPress blog.

Hey Neville, thanks for the message. How are you? Yes the little lady is growing up fast. Where does the time go?

Usually new blogs are indexed by Google pretty quickly. If you want to let me know your blogs domain urls then I can take a look.

Hi Kevin good to meet you! You seem like someone who has the drive and focus to succeed! At the moment I'm just starting out and to be honest the whole thing is scaring me rigid at the moment. I'm just gonna work through the courses, think of something I can concentrate on and go from there. Hopefully I can hit you up if I need help. I'll be following you anyway! take care!

Hi Kevin,

I most of all at this point want to GET MY BUSINESS EARNING!!! I have been working at this for a few months and I still am not at the place I want to be. I am not as of yet making any money from this. I have asked and read so much that I have information overload. I setup a website and I am being told that I will have to wait a week or more in order to be directed to it from the search engine and not just the website that I builded the site from. I am trying extremely hard to be useful mean while by posting links without my website being ready. I know that I can post links without a website but I can not seem to get the RIGHT HELP WITHOUT SOMEONE ALWAYS ASKING FOR MONEY TO SHOW ME!!!!! I know this is a great business opportunity but I am getting more and more frustrated that I have been working so hard and invest all that I have in money in this WITH NO RESULTS!!!!!!

PLEASE HELP ME FIGURE OUT WHAT I AM DOING WRONG SO I CAN START EARNING AN INCOME FROM THIS IMMEDIATELY!!!!!!!! I am not looking to get rich overnight but I need to see some progress because I put all the money I have in this and I CAN NOT AFFORD FOR IT TO FAIL!!!!!!!!

Can you email me back about my message to you???

Greetings Kevin,

I thought I was already stalking.....I mean following you, lol. I've seen your face around, especially in welcoming new members, some of whom came to WA through your site. I haven't referred anyone...yet....so I decided to watch and learn from those whom have done what I haven't.

That's a powerful quote by Jim Rohn, and probably very challenging to do consistently.

Oops....I didn't even see that 2nd quote JimRohn. Looking forward to being a part of your network Kevin, should you return the follow.

Question about my website. I am doing hygiene products which include men's grooming, face wash, toothpaste/brush and more however I am confused about promoting big name products, can I do that? Or do I have to attach a link with the product that sends them to the company's website.
Reply
kevinmj Premium
That's a great niche Heber. You could possibly do both. You can contact the companies directly to see if they offer an affiliate program. If so, you could sign up with them and promote their products directly on your own website. An easier option maybe is to become an Amazon Affiliate. This way you will be sending traffic to the Amazon links that promote the product. The training will explain this much more as you progress through the lessons.

Hello Kevin;
I'm about to go premium; but I had a quick question. When WA mentions that all resources are made available to you for the $19, does that include Web Hosting sites and Campaign cost? Do we have to pay additionally for those resource sites for leverage in the Affiliate Markets? Sites like GVO, Shopify, Rakuten, etc.
Reply
kevinmj Premium
Yes web hosting is included in the Premium membership Floretha. With Premium you get a lot of tools to help you build your online business.

I listen to everything I can find from him on YouTube. I'm looking at this journey as one that will be tough, yet rewarding. A marathon, not a sprint. I'm in this for the long haul.

I just have a question for you. Do you think Video Games is a good choice for my first niche? It is something I have a deep passion for and actually have 8 years sales experience specifically for this niche. If you have any advice I would love to hear!

Jake

kevinmj Premium
Sounds like a great niche Jacob. I know Video Games is highly popular so I would start by doing some keyword research to see what low competition keywords are currently being searched by folks interested in this niche. Initially, the aim is to get your website content ranked on page 1 Google so you'll need to source some low competition keywords. If you find that it's too competitive then you can look at a niche within Video Games which you could offer. I personally would try and find an angle that no one else is doing or very few are doing.

Hi William, thank you for your message. I'm doing great, thanks. Oh yes it takes time working on your niche and building your website. There is no rush at all and it's better to build your site on a solid foundation making sure you follow through with all the step by step training. Keep up the great work. Have a great day too!

WOW!! it worked Kevin. Now how long does it take for google to index the site and start ranking it, if I am not wrong I thought I saw some where in the video from Kyle mentioning within 14 days or it can be faster based on your key words and internal links. I am a bit curious :)
Reply
kevinmj Premium
That's awesome Ali! There's no definitive answer to how long it takes Google to start indexing your site or start ranking content. It can happen withing a few hours or take longer. Just keep monitoring your site to see when Google does do it. Jaaxy is a great tool to use for this too.

alikhan2 Premium
Hi Kevin, I am trying to get the site index with google, when I get to a point where I need to copy the Meta tag to the home page in word press the editor under appearance is not enabled.
How do get that enabled as a premium member.
Thanks.
Reply
kevinmj Premium
Hi Ali, the "editor" in the "appearance" section should always be enabled. Try clearing your cache/cookies and rebooting your PC. Let me know if this sorts it.

Kevin, I was told by Kyle that Real Estate.com cost millions of dollars. I want to create a similar website with property developments. Property developers list their projects on my website to advertise their websites to investors and clients of their property developments to take applications for pre-sales and market research.
I need an elaborate menu. I still wonder if it is possible to create it with wordpress. It will take a lot of time and a lot of trial.
Reply
kevinmj Premium
As mentioned in previous messages Nathaly, building a site like that will be a challenge. Keep in mind that realestate.com.au spend millions on research, marketing, web developers, employees etc so it will be hard to compete with them. You may want to focus on a less competitive niche.

I would like my niche to be Healthy living with Diabetes. What do you think? When I create my domain and website, does it matter how I word it? For example, Healthy lifestyles with diabetes, or Healthy living with diabetes, or Living healthy with diabetes. does the word order matter?

Sounds like a good niche Shlomo. Have you done some keyword research to see what keywords are currently ranking well for this niche? How you word the domain does not matter. The key is the good quality content that you regularly upload to your site.

Dear Kevin, Thank you very much for your extremely valuable message. I am a student in law on the disability support pension. It is extremely hard to make ends meet. We are property developers in NEW CALEDONIA. I want to create a website for our property development and property developers looking for investors, checking the market and promoting their property developments for pre-sales. If I get successful SEO, the website should quickly rank with google in the first few pages. If I can get help to make the website, that is load all the photos for the property development which include an international award winning project on a dream island, then I should get interest right away from investors and other property developers and buyers of the units. I want to know how I can access the niche within the 2 billions internet viewers. What would attract the investors to my website. In fact, what website would attract internet investors.
Kind regards,

Dear Kevin,

I go through the lessons every night and I do not quite catch how to include content and menus to the website. Anyway, I have to write the content and prepare the menus. Do I write everything down on a notebook? How did you do your first website?

Kind regards,

NATHALY MARY

Hi Nathaly,

Great to hear that you're going through the lessons. Keep in mind that the training is step by step. You can always go over each lesson at any point and as many times as you need so that you thoroughly understand it.

Yes you can write your content on notebook first and then when you are happy with it you can copy/paste it onto WordPress.

Let me know how you get on.

Hello kevin,

Just decided to give you a shout, because I. Haven't heard from you for a few minute. How are the business going? And how are the family?

I am still pushing forward. Accomplishing something new each day. My classes are going well. Still a lot to cover so have been back and forth in classes as needed.
My rank at WA is going up. That is exceptional. I am actively helping others wwithin the community

I need to stay in boot camp to master some of the tasks. I need to get more creative with my lesson plan.

I did accomplish one goal you insisted I do and I did. Go forward and paid yearly. Now I can focus more on graduating.

Blog are going, I continue to build a great site by practing and Appling what I learn in my classes.

Thought I. Should touch home with my successes.

Cheers and Laughter

PS. I. See great potential. Within your site!

Thanks for your message Louisa. I'm spending my summer on holiday in Tenerife so been a bit quieter replying to messages. This is my 2nd family holiday I've been able to pay for with the income I'm making from the WA training. It really does work. :)

Great to hear you are progressing well with the training. It's always most helpful to go through all the courses at least 3 times to get a good understanding.

Keep in touch.

Hey Kevin, I have a question about WA websites. Can they be customized to do anything? Or are they limited? For example, can they handle databases? Can these sites also handle traffic/users uploading pics and videos to my website? Is server space an issue when it comes to media type content provided by my website, but also by users who would put up media? Thanks

I don't want to speed my learning, i want to take my new learning in strive and grow from it. I do realize that earning money in this industry will come. For now its about helping others and learning how to build a great site, in which that takes time especially if you are new at. Okay, let me continue on with my schedule for today!

Hi Louisa,

Yes it's important to take your time so you don't rush and miss any steps. You will possibly have to go through the whole course another 2 times or so. This way you'll start to understand the training more and find it starts to make much more sense.

Have a great week ahead!
