About Kevinmj
Joined March 2014
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 several successful home businesses 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 followed the conventional route of education by going to university, getting a law degree, then worked as a lawyer for a bank in London but got made redundant due to the company relocating. It didn't go to plan.

Have you ever been told this route to follow by mainstream society; go to school, get good grades, go to university, get a good job, work for a boss for 40 years...depressing isn't it? There's got to be so much more to life.

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.

To be honest I believe I studied law to keep my parents happy. It wasn't my dream but there's. No fault of them at all though. It's what society drums into us all from an early age. Become a doctor, lawyer or accountant...those are respectable professions. What about the artists, sculptors, musicians, poets. Sigh, a dreamer but does it pay the bills. :)

I was always felt I was searching for something but I didn't know what it was at the time until I lost my job. That was the "wake up" call and key to unlock the door.

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 conventional 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. The experience I gained literally changed my life on so many levels.

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.

Several years later I came across WA and I have now been here for over 3 years. In those 3 years, I have qualified for the WA Las Vegas conference three years in a row and in November 2016 I surpassed my initial monthly income goal of $5000.

That was my main income goal when I joined WA back in March 2014. It took over 2 years to do but I achieved it. I kept focused and working towards my goals. You can achieve your own goals through the WA training too!

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 everyone 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.

SPOILER ALERT: You've got to be in for the long-term for the training to work here at WA. It's all about building a solid and sustainable online business that will go on paying you a RESIDUAL INCOME for possibly the rest of your life.

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. You will find in the end, it's not about the money you make but instead about the person you become."

These words stayed with me and the point is to work on your mindset at all times especially when you experience challenges which undoubtedly you will.

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 Kevin!

Just joined a few hours ago and have loved doing the first few lessons and looking at other peoples profiles, getting inspiration, etc.

Loved reading your bio and a bit of your journey in the whole world of online marketing/business! Cool to see the hard work has paid off, and loved hearing the truth about this not being a get rich quick scheme. I was super skeptical about this whole thing, but it's awesome that the general message is - you gotta work for it! But it's rewarding.

So with that, just wanted to say hey and it's cool to join the community here!

Hi kevinmg......one question. In Lesson 8 regarding the Privacy Policy. In Kyle's tutorial, after inserting my URL in the appropriate places, when I go to publish, the dropdown for "admin" does not come up as indicated in Kyle's tutorial......only the dropdown listing my websites comes up. What do I do? Many thanks, Jane

I wouldn't be concerned about this Jane. It could be that Kyle created a dummy site as an admin for training purposes. I recommend to keep moving forward with the training.

hi kevin nice to meet you. I'm still in the process of doing the training videos so i don't really have any questions. Although I was thinking of doing movies or video games as my niche but i'm not sure aside from maybe Amazon if anywhere would offer revenue for those. Any suggestions?

Hi Adam, nice to meet you too! Great that you made it here to WA. :)

Those are popular niches which you'll need to narrow down. There are many affiliate programs you could promote which you'll find out more about as you progress through the training.

Hi kevinmj........does it matter that a domain name is not that much geared for SEO. The name of the domain which I wish to use is Best Puppy Love. I googled "puppy love" and it gets only 60,000 monthly hits which does seem to be that much..... however googling "puppy" there are over 680,000,000 monthly hits....

So does it really matter as I will be using keywords in my content?

thanks for your help....Jane

Hi kevin.......this is another problem. I was trying to send you a question on you Support Ticket Submission. When I put in the title (phrased as a question) a dropdown menu comes up. NOne of the options are applicable to my question. But I could not get rid of the dropdown so I could enter my question in the box provided. It is very frustrating and annoying....how to ask a question using the Support Ticket Submission.

While I have you, my question is - in the process of deleting the default pages - do I delete the default Privacy Policy page that is set up on my site? Thank you....Jane
Reply
kevinmj Premium
Hi Jane,

You use Site Support only for technical questions with your website, domains or hosting. That's why you wouldn't see a drop down menu for the Privacy Policy page question.

Regarding the Privacy Policy page, you would keep it but change the text. There is an example of default text you can use in the training.

In Level1, Lesson 7, you'll find training on how to create your Privacy Policy Page:

Hi Kevinmj.....I wish to activate my plugins.....I am not sure if I have or not.....under each plugin - All One SEO and EWWW Image Optimizer, there are two links "Activate" and "Delete" (in red).....When it says "Activate", it sounds like something I should do ....However if it said "Activated" it would be clear to me that the plugin was activated....so I am just a little confused...thanks for your help....Jane

Hi Jane,

Thanks for your message. If the plugin says to "activate" it then you need to activate it. If it says "activated" you don't need to do anything.

Hope this makes sense.

Thanks Kevin....it was a little confusing because there was a link indicating that two of the plugins had been activated and yet the "activate" link was located under the plugin description line.....don't know if this makes sense ...the point is, I was getting contradictory information.......but again.....many thanks....

Hi Kevin, quick question. I have in mind 3 different niches. The only thing that concerns me is they all are very popular and have a lot of websites. Not sure what to go with you want a product in demand yet I don't want so much competition. What are your thoughts? Thank you!!!
Reply
kevinmj Premium
Hi Ellen ,

Choosing your niche can be the most challenging part when starting out. If they are very popular then that means they are demand and people are undoubtedly making money with them.

Don't be too concerned though as there is great training in Course 1 which explains in detail just how to choose the right niche which is best suited for you.

The big question is not "what" is going to make money, but "what do you want to make money with?"

In other words, what are your own interests?
What do you think would be interesting to research and write about?
What do you want to help people with?

A good sentence to help you decide your niche is "I want to help people _____"

Helping people is the best way to make money in any business. Everyone wins. Short of that, pick something that you just find interesting.

There are literally thousands of affiliate programs, products, and ways to make money in any niche or industry if you get creative. All of that will come into focus in Level 3 of your training, so for now, we just need to look at getting your topic chosen, your website built, and then start creating awesome content for your business!

If you ever need a hand with this then please do ask. I'm always happy to help. :)

Have a great day!

Kevin

Hey Kevin, I'll be honest with you I've not been getting much done of late, I'm trying to balance work and home life, then finding time to crack on with the lesson. Trust me there's NO giving up at all in me. Also I meant to ask, do I engage with the community or is it best to concentrate on the training till I'm up to speed with all the ins and outs. I say this because in order for to help anyone I must know what I'm doing myself.
Reply
kevinmj Premium
No problem at all. The great thing about the WA training and platform is that you can work it around your family, job, commitments, etc.

It's much better to go through the lessons and action tasks. Your main aim is to build your website and hence online business. If you have any free time out of this then by all means it's prudent to you engage with the community. You may have questions which the community can answer. Many have been through what you are going through and some are very successful. It's your choice of course. :)

i am watching the first training video. I have never had my own business let alone one on line. sounds like to going to be a lot of work. Probably because I am new to this. It says I only get help for the first 7 days if i am not a premium member. I was wanting to make money with the 2 web sites i get so i can afford the premium membership.

Work is slowing down now. I am a truck Driver and you would think we would be busy. But for the last 2 years it gets slow around winter time, so i am applying for a job with a different company, and trying to start this business online. So I have a lot of new stuff that might be happening to me. Going to be a big change.

If so could you check it out and give your input?
I got a problem writing, my ideas from my head to the key board some how get lost or come out the wrong way.

My website - was derailed for a bit. I have re-committed myself and ready to review & continue onward. Sometimes, doing all this is just a bit overwhelming. Reading and doing is all fine and good till you make a mistake -- there are no instructions concerning what really went wrong - or how to backtrack and correct. I had to walk away for a bit.
Reply

Every site is unique Carolyn so it's challenging to provide specific instructions to correct mistakes. You can always ask questions and the community is very helpful. There is also Site Support to help with any technical issues with your site. It's always good to pause and reflect on what your outcome is with your site or if you need to go over the training several times. It's absolutely a learning process for most when building websites. :)

While bouncing around WA I noticed your profile and that you were an Ambassador and in the top 10 ranking. Congrats!!

You definitely used WA as a tool to achieve your income goals. Can I ask you what method(s) you used to attract New Affiliates to WA and to earn your way to Las Vegas.

Did you use click funnels to lead potential WA'ers to a login page Or did you use Social media with a link to a sign up page? Or did you use a combination and what worked the best?

Thank you for your the instructive words from Jim Rohn.

Looking forward to hearing back from you.

Hi @kevinmj - Kevin - can you help me with a question about choosing my niche? I am interested in travel and have been to over 20 countries with photos, ideas and tips to share - but is that to broad? Would it be better to have one website for example travelmehappy.co and then write about different countries and travel experiences where I can promote things like filghts, package holidays, booking sites, suitcases, travel accessories, etc. OR will it be better to have a very specific niche about one country for example 'traveltipsnewzealand.co'. I am a bit stuck and not even sure if travel is the right niche to start with. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hi Kevin,

I was hoping to purchase the premium but I am feeling uneasy and uncertain as I am a university student without a source of income. I would really like to instill my trust in Wealthy Affiliate, but I am nervous and apprehensive to do so in case I spend the money, and am unable to make it back. This whole process is overwhelming to me; I find I comprehend the material and the training is very sufficient but I am overwhelmed with the thought of the process, I think. I am unsure of what steps to take from here. I would really appreciate if you could offer some guidance and hopefully provide me with some clarity and answers.
Thank you,

Hi Kendra,

No problem at all. You can actually build 2 free websites using SiteRubix. You also get Course 1 for free which teaches you how to choose your niche and build the basics of your website. From there you'll find free training by searching on the WA search bar.

Going through the lessons and affiliate marketing is a step by step process. You don't learn it all over night and it takes time to develop the skills to become successful. It's like doing a 3/4 year college degree and you learn more as you progress through the training.

I recommend taking your time going through each lesson. If you have any questions at any stage then pause the training and ask me or the community. WA is a very helpful training platform and there are members who have been here since 2005 when it started. I've been here since 2014 and I'm learning new things about the industry everyday. it really is a learning process and the success is in the journey itself.

Wishing you every success! :)

WA allows me to create a website where I can promote that niche. In order to start making money Do I then find affiliate programs within my niche and they will pay me to promote their product on my website provided by WA.

Thank you Kevin, I appreciate your welcome and encouragement!
I am a newbie in this and am hungry to learn. One question, I read Aimeedfox's message down below and I don't remember clicking on your affiliate link through your own advertising? I guess I don't understand what that means? I found out about WA on a blog about 'is SFI a scam or not?'

Thank you for your support and insights!

What an inspiring story!

I am a physician and can empathize with your story regarding the legal profession.

MEdicine has been good to me, but having a medical practice is becoming more and more difficult due to insurance and government issues here in the US.

I am so far really enjoying my journey here with WA - just getting started. Your inspirational quote from Jim Rohn will be taken to heart. Working on yourself and acquiring new skill sets is important for every aspect of life, don't you think?

Thanks for your insights,
Dave.

Hi Kevin. Well now I'm curious... I came to Wealthy Affiliate site directly; not via google link, etc. So, does WA have a system where people joining from site directly are given to current premium members as referrals? If so, is that a random selection of premium members or based on success of premium member, etc?
Reply
kevinmj Premium
Hi Aimee, you must have clicked on my affiliate link through my own advertising. You'll learn how to get targeted leads to your website through the training. There's no system where people joining from your site directly are given to current premium members as referrals. You have to attract leads through your own marketing strategies which you'll learn all about.

Was wondering who do you reach out to when having problem on the WA platform and not our website.

kevinmj Premium
Hi Jackie,

Finding a good niche seems like a tough task, but it's actually pretty easy. Actually, ANY niche can make money, so you definitely should not worry if your niche is profitable or not. As far as competition goes, that's also something to not worry about. If there's competition, it just means people are making money. That means you can make some too! As time progresses, new products come out, new technology is introduced, new ideas formed, and each change is an opportunity for "the new kid" to get a foothold and overtake established websites.

So the big question is not "what" is going to make money, but "what do you want to make money with?"

In other words, what are your own interests?
What do you think would be interesting to research and write about?
What do you want to help people with?

A good sentence to help you decide your niche is "I want to help people _____"

Helping people is the best way to make money in any business. Everyone wins. Short of that, pick something that you just find interesting.

There are literally thousands of affiliate programs, products, and ways to make money in any niche or industry if you get creative. All of that will come into focus in Level 3 of your training, so for now, we just need to look at getting your topic chosen, your website built, and then start creating awesome content for your business!

You're very welcome Faradawina. I'm glad you made it here to WA. :)

You are in the right place to learn about affiliate marketing. It's good you have some ideas already and the training will teach you how to build a website around your niche ideas.

I started with AM 4 years ago when I joined WA. It's been a whirlwind of a ride and well worth it. I work full-time in AM and it's great to not have a boss or the dreaded 9 to 5. :)

What brought you to WA?
Reply
Wina163 Premium
in where I'm from, it's 9 to 6 ;)

I've been reading and also signed up with other affiliate programs before but recently thought of reaching out to friends who's also doing AM. I realized i don't have that many friends doing AM even though a majority of my connections are in digital marketing. so i really wanted to find a community of people in AM.

so i was just browsing around and stumbled upon a post on WA ⁢ talked about the community here. i've seen and heard WA before, but i never actually went to the website. so i gave it a try and voila :)
Reply
kevinmj Premium
Yes you're right, for many folks it's more like 9 to 6 or even longer hours these days.

You'll find a community of like-minded members helping each other to move forward with their businesses. It's a paying it forward type of community where you help out whenever you can. There's always someone who joins after you with less experience who you can help out. Of course, as you're new yourself feel free to ask away with any questions. Live chat is a good place to start to network with the community and build connections.

Wishing you much success here at WA and with your online business Faradawina. :)

Thank you for the link. There is so much out there and I hear about this opportunity but help is usually little bits of info with the majority of it a set up for a lot more money. Expensive series of steps and somewhere ahead you will have an income from home. I just can't afford the steps in total and waste the resources on something that would help me but ends up being a sales event. It makes me wonder if people are making money by selling promises to people trying to find out how to make money. Is it real?
Reply

You're very welcome Catherine. It's understandable to be sceptical as there are so many scams on the Internet. Ironically, much of the Bootcamp training is reviewing these scams (and legitimate opportunities). With WA there are no events to go to, apart from qualifying for Vegas. :) This is affiliate marketing, not MLM or network marketing. This opportunity is real but it's down to you and hard/smart you work. This really does require you to work consistently especially if you're looking to create a full-time income working online. I've been doing this full-time since 2002 and it ain't easy by any stretch of the imagination but it's well worth it on many levels.

Hey Kevinmj, It's nice to be acquainted! Im doing well. I have tried marketing in the past, well AOL Dial-up phased out and DSL was the fastest new thing on the market. Needless to say, after some time and jumping niches, I failed..

I thought I was chasing my passions but instead I was chasing all the flashy companies that were far off better in the marketing industry than I was starting as a newbie. Without guidance or a mentor, I fell for every upsell out there. I not only started myself into debt but my mother as well.

Even though the market has changed and grew, I know there is still enough room for any entrepreneurs heart and mind to tap into the market today and grow with it.

I've been reluctant for several months on when I would get back into learning to market for myself and finally be able to say I have a or several successful online business('s). And the honest truth is, There is no set time for it to be the right time!

hope to learn from you, until then...

Hi Kevin, thank you so much for your message. I have not spent much time on here yet because of an unexpected situation that came up over the weekend.

I am doing great, how are you? I am really glad i signed up using your affiliate link.

I will spend some more time on here and check things out. What I am really impressed about is that things are very straightforward and to the point on here. I checked out other affiliate programs like Clickfunnels and some of the things I noticed on there, I felt were not straightforward - they required you to watch long webinars which did not really answer all of the questions, were not overly straightforward about costs and tried to upsell at every opportunity.

WA seems to be more like what I was looking for all along :)

Hi there,

Thanks for reaching out to me. I've spent so many hours browsing the internet looking for a legitimate way of earning money at home and is really hoping I have found the right place. I was getting ready to join with GAZ(not sure if you are familiar with this) and it ended up being something that I wasn't what I thought it was.

I'm really hoping this will be something that is going to work for me. I just don't want to invest much of my fiancé' s had earned money on something that's not going to work out,

Hi Kevin,
I've tried SO many times to get into Affiliate marketing but failed EVERY time. This will be my last attempt. I'm a pensioner and do not have a lot of money.

I Can't afford to waste anymore. I'm so broke at the moment that I can't even pay attention. LOL

If I don't make money soon I'm afraid I'll lose everything.

Don't get me wrong here - this is not a plea for money - all I want is to be independent and to own my own income.!

How can you help me?

"Work harder on yourself than you do on your job or business and the rewards will come. You will find in the end, it's not about the money you make but instead about the person you become."

This is absolutely true; I also forced myself into societal expectations by putting obligations first & it nearly destroyed me. But as you mentioned, life's upheavals are "wake up calls" - or if we choose to embrace as such - opportunities.

I really enjoyed reading your profile summary & thank you for the overview of your financial experience, as well as Mr. Rohn's sage advice.

May I ask if you've surpassed any further financial goals since you last posted?

All the best,

Hi Kevin,
I haven't been doing much lately with the website, but plan on keeping it going. I have had issues with my macbook pro and just need to teach myself about that too. I realized not only was I putting myself through an intense training here on WA, but I also was learning the in and out's of the apple system too. I am now wondering if I should go to a chromebook that may be easier for me. But I just wanted to let you know that I am still here and haven't given WA up by know means. Thanks for all you have done to help me too! Have a great day!

Great to hear from you Diane! Chromebooks are superb for building an online business. I bought an Acer Chromebook recently and it's the best I've had by far. Can't hear a noise and it does not get hot like the other laptops I had. I recommend for sure. :)

Have a great weekend!

Am I right in thinking the reason people blog soooo much on wa is to get likes which is noticed in the public domain and there for we come across as experts in our field. Making us more attractive to follow and potential business.
So for example I have an existing business which is struggling to be seen on www. So this pushes it up the Google ranks.
I hope I'm getting this.

Hi Penny,

If you are brand new to affiliate marketing then you're in the right place to learn about how it all works.

I recommend to start with Course 1. As you progress carefully through each lesson you'll start to understand about the concepts and strategies to build a successful online business. Everything is contained with the lessons to understand affiliate marketing.

It takes time building a successful online business and most people new to the industry want to know how it all works straightaway. The simple answer is you can't explain it as the knowledge and experience comes during the journey itself.

If you have any questions as you progress through each lesson then be sure to ask.

Hope this helps.

Also, if my current posts have affiliate programs...is it possible to add links in the posts after the fact, or should I wait on those posts until I am already signed up to programs? I haven't got to the "making money" lessons yet.

Hi Kevin:

Can I start completely at the beginning with training. I had other obligations toward the end of last week. When I went back to training, it said that I should have built my website at that point which is not the case.

My issue was naming my niche and website. I read someone's blog where he had picked the wrong name for his niche and the website name didn't match up or some such thing, and I became paralyzed. I continued on with training because I thought I could go back to that point.

Anyway, I'm stuck and need some assistance to get me going again.

Thanks for any advice you may have.
Reply
kevinmj Premium
Hi Annette,

Yes you can start at the beginning of the training. You can always go back to the beginning of the training at any stage. I always recommend to go through the courses at least 2 to 3 times anyway so that you get a thorough understanding of lessons.

I wouldn't worry too much about the name of your site. You can always change it if you have built your site using SiteRubix as it is very easy to edit the name and title of your site.

If you have bought your own domain name and not happy with it for whatever reason then you can buy a new domain name and transfer your site across to the new domain. WA Site Support can help you with this.

So I would absolutely continue on with the lessons Annette. If you need any guidance at all then let me know.

Plus where would I find more about this statement in the content lesson?
The reason that I am asking I would like to do cameras and with amazon all of their cameras are in prime and I know a place B&H Photo.
They want a website with multi pages I was thinking of one page for canon cameras and a page for nikon cameras with other pages for things that goes with each one and stuff like tripods, bags and so on,

Amazon has special memberships like prime. If selling thing from prime do I have to be a member of prime? How does something like that work. The more I learn and try to do the more questions I come up with. It great thinking but one step at a time.

Like I asked what if a subject is in prime? Do I Have to join prime?

Is Amazon Prime an affiliate program? You'll need to contact Amazon directly to find out more on this.

I would just work on one website Clifton. You don't need to build a second or third website. You could just have one site and become successful with that. You'll be all over the place if you think you have to build 1, 2, 3, 4, etc websites right now. That's impossible to juggle and will get you confused. I recommend that you just to focus on one site. How is your WA site getting along?

with your niche market aka cameras, could you link affiliate programs from two or more companies together? if you get something from amazon and something else from best buys, how would the order go through?
What if you buy a niche and find online classes could you link those two together and how would the person pay for these things?

Hi Betty, whenever you make major changes to your site, such as a theme change, then you always want to back up your site first before making the changes.

There are many trainings about how to back up your site by searching on the WA search box at the top of your WA dashboard.

I recommend contacting WA Site Support to see if they can look into what has happened to your site.

2. Lets suppose my niche is the halal products, i.e. which includes restaurants in UK, and other halal products, on which I will write different articles. so how am I supposed to make money out of that?

Hello Kevin!

Thanks a bunch for sharing so much about yourself.

Welcome to WA!

After six weeks here at WA, I only just finished Level 1 (out of 5) for the certificate in entrepreneurship! That’s kind of slow, I know, but if you read the brief bio on my profile, you might be able to understand why. And although I am still new in this community, I wanted to make sure I am among the first ones to welcome you and share with you a few truths about it.

WA is not a quick-money type of scheme.

It is rather the best step-by-step, work-at-your-own-pace learning process that guaranties the actual acquisition of skills and tools needed for a successful online business in affiliate marketing.

WA has the best mentoring community I've have come across so far for someone like me to gain skills I’ve never dreamed of acquiring this late in my life.

So, I can’t imagine what you’ll be able to achieve if you put your mind to it.

Again, welcome to WA!

Just finished watching training video on affiliate links…I have a number of questions about affiliate links:

1) The video wasn’t exact as to how many links are suggested in a single post? For example, if my post is promoting Wealthy Affiliate, how many links are recommended per post so your Google ranking is not adversely affected?

2) Since I have a lot of posts promoting Wealthy Affiliate, what is THE BEST strategy for getting affiliate links on all of those posts?

3) Would it hurt my Google ranking if I have different links on the same post for different products?

4) Kyle mentioned in the video sending the links in his posts to a review page which in turn directly links to the actual product. Is this necessary?

I would appreciate the answers to these questions as it would help clarify my concerns about affiliate links.

Thank you,
Howard
Reply
kevinmj Premium
Here are my answers to your questions Howard:

1. I recommend having 3 affiliate links for a 1000 word post.

2. The best strategy is to follow Kyle's training.

3. No it wouldn't hurt the ranking. The content has to be relevant to the products your are promoting and naturally flow. This make it more engaging for the reader.

4. Yes. I would again follow Kyle's training here.

Hope this helps.

Reply

Yes Google does not like too many images and especially a post/page full of affiliate links. As an example, the best way is to write a post/page with 1000 words and add approx 3 - 5 images and the same number of relevant affiliate links (3 - 5). The content is king here as Google wants to see new, regular, structured and engaging content.

kevinmj Premium
Sorry to hear this Pedro. You'll need to contact Google regarding your passwords. WA can't help you with that as Google is a separate company. Yes it does take time for Google to rank your content. It's the same for everyone. Google has to see that you are posting new, original, consistent and engaging content. They visit your website frequently and if they don't see this then they won't rank your content highly. They look at the quality of your content, what keywords you are using and how your content is structured. It takes time to master this and there is no rush to do so. The training explains this in great detail. The training is step by step and you can take your time to understand the concepts and follow through with the action tasks. It's actually better to take your time to make sure you are following the steps correctly. You can always ask questions at any stage. Affiliate marketing is a learning curve for many and it's never anyone's fault if you are facing challenges. You have to look deep inside yourself many times to see the person you have become and are becoming. My mentor Jim Rohn once said to me, "work harder on yourself than you do on your job or business and the rewards will come. It's not about the money you make or success you achieve but instead it is about the person you become..."

if doing a website to sell movies and tv shows, could you in the post talk about the movies and the stars that's in them? i was thinking to have Trivia Questions in the posts. Like: what two people are in the Baseball hall of fame that never play baseball? The answer will be Abbott and Costello, then come back with ok what movie was it done in it's entity? the naughty nineties.
Could talk about what other super stars where in the movies.
Could you talk about what monsters were in the movies?

I like old radio programs I was thing of trying to some how do a website that takes the people in Vaudeville that went into radio then into movies and tv shows.
What would be the best way to set this up? One website or two

Hi Kevin! You told me to contact you if I had any questions. So here I am.
I have been working on my site for six months now and have been concentrating on showcasing my photos. Well, I have been putting way too many photos in my posts and pages. It seems that the ratio between the text and media is way off. Would it be a better idea to have a photo gallery on the post rather than posting individual photos? Could you have a look on my site and give me your advice?
I have so many things to fix after trying to Fetch it Google ( I only get a partial reading) and SEM RUSH
I guess what I am asking is where do I start?
I have for the last 5 days, working on Alt Tags seeing that I had got that all wrong as well.
Thank you
Colleen
Reply
kevinmj Premium
Your site is coming along nicely Colleen. I love the content and you've chosen a great niche. As for images, yes you could opt to install a photo gallery and have the photos feature on separate page. There possibly is a plugin that can do this for you.

Having so many photos does involve a lot of time making sure you got the alt tags all set up correctly on each photo. You want to ensure you don't have too much images on a post/page and less text. If you're writing a 1000 - 1500 post/page then I wouldn't have more than 5 images. In saying that, it's a mystery to most just how the Google algorithm works but I would opt to have more text than images on a post/page just to err on the side of caution.

Again, awesome site Colleen. :)

Hi Kevin,
Your bio is awesome and so on point. Society does play a part in “institutionalising” us about what the norm is. Question is, does it give you happiness regardless of the income you generate. I find tourney story a brave one and one I can relate to. In my case, it was my sons autism which made me leave behind the 9-5 hum drum! Best decision I ever made and I now work on small projects.

As a new WA, I need to pick the brains of seasoned pros like yourself and I would be grateful for your valued support throughout my journey. No doubt I’ll be reading on the useful info you post and hopefully our paths cross soon. Take care for now!!

I am curious about one thing. What is the average time someone who is following these lessons start seeing money coming in.

I am not expecting thousands right off the bat, I will happy with 50 a day.

I am excited about this program and have been talking to tons of people about this program, they and I want to see if it works before I start recommending it to people I know.

I just want to know how much real money can expect to see.

You can't put a time frame as to when you will make income David. This is an online business you are building and not a job. They both are completely different and building an online business requires a different mindset. I recommend working through all the courses. Take your time to understand each lesson. If you have questions at any stage then be sure to ask.

Hello Kevin
What is the proper way of leaving comments for an affiliates site? I am confused do we leave it on the site itself and in our site Rubix comment section? On just the site? Or just in the Rubix comment section please explain because it seems I am getting 2 Comments on other affiliates sites and don’t want to cause them trouble because I am not doing it right.

Hi Mark,

I recommend using the Site Comments feature here at WA:

I took care of Marco he is done that was about feedback. this about comments on other affiliate sites. it seems I am doing something wrong because when I go to their sites there is duplicate comments on their sites therefore I am not doing something right?

kevinmj Premium
Yes I know. You can also leave comments (not site feedback) using the Site Comments feature. Have you tried using Site Comments?

Hello Kevin
So, the proper way is to go affiliate website and read and then write my comment only on the Rubix comments page inside W.A. Correct?
Reply
Mark-from-NY Premium
Yes, this is where the problem lies I have left comments on the Rubix site as well as the website then when I go to the site my comments are their twice which is not correct to have two comments duplicated on the same page. If you can please Go to this website http://improveyourgolfswings.com/ and see what I mean.

Hello Kevin
Wow big problem I wrote feedback for Marco on http://funnyjobsfromhome.siterubix.com/
I am not sure what happened but it went to someone else not sure so I deleted it because what I wrote was not relevant to them so I got credit for feedback that was not delivered and Marco never got his feedback what do I do?? this is his feedback can you help me get it to him? Also the person looking for feedback got it but then I deleted it so they got screwed too
Thanks Mark

Hi Mark,

Can you go back onto Marco's site and write the comment/feedback again?

How do I get his site on the feedback?

You can't choose a specific site to offer feedback on as the system rotates them. You could go to his site: http://funnyjobsfromhome.siterubix.com/ and offer feedback/comments on a particular post.

Hello Kevin as I have said I have started affiliate marketing mid-February and have already made a couple of pages on Lead pages and have had trouble getting traffic to the site. I was lured in by other affiliate programs which I won’t mention promising to teach me only to find out that it will cost me thousands in up sales with no grantee which tells me they are not really interested in helping as much as helping themselves to my hard-earned money?
Thanks Mark-from-NY

The training here at WA will teach you how to succeed online. You'll find no upsells here. The first 10 lessons are free which are more than enough when teaching you how to choose a niche and how to build your website. You can build 2 websites with hosting with just the free Starter level. Premium is an option and you can remain with the Starter level.

Continued success!

You're most welcome Angel. You're in the best place here at WA to help you create a successful online business. The best books I read when I started in this industry was Robert Kiyosaki's "Rich Dad Poor Dad" and "Cashflow Quadrant" these 2 books helped me learn the difference between having a job, being self employed, being a business builder and becoming an investor. They are real eye openers and I highly recommend reading them. :)

Hello Kevin,

Just dropping in for a few lines to say hi and to get to know you a bit. What a wonderful profile picture you have created of yourself and your commitments.

I have been absent from this site and my own website for a year, fighting a legal battle with someone who I felt had bad intentions regarding the welfare of my granddaughter. Its done now, the judge ruled in my favor but it was the most stressful thing I have ever had to carry, took time, money, and some of my physical well being from me from all of the stress. But now that I am getting back on my feet, I am also striving to get my website healthy again and catch up with the WA community.

I did not know you back when this legal journey started for me and so you are a new face to me. Thanks for the great bio and the opportunity to get to know you. I'm convinced you have the right stuff to be an Ambassador and we are all better because you are in this community.

Hi Linda,

Thank you for your kind words. Great that you are back here at WA and ready to continue building your own online success.

I think I am a new face to many as I keep a relatively low profile here at WA. Ambassador was never my intention as I work mainly on building my online businesses which is the main thing. Ambassadorship here at WA don't pay the bills ;)

Again, I wish you continued success with your own online journey and looking forward to connecting with you further during our time here at WA.

Hi Kevin, Just wanted to give you an update on my site www.Millbrookmemories.com. Has been adding content that I think is important for our family to have a record of, and may be of interest to my readers, too.
I have signed up to be an Amazon Associate.
I successfully added ads to my sidebar! Yeah!
I have been accepted with Flex Offers.
I have signed up with Clickbank.
I have emailed a few other affiliates and got approved.
I have been using the Site Content to copy and paste my already journal writings that are of interest to my readers and to the family I am doing this for! LOVE IT!
I have been using Jaaxy to find low-hanging fruit keywords that I will be adding to my posts more and more as I write content.
I am currently on Course 2, Lesson 9 in the Certification Training in WA! (I have skipped ahead to watch the videos though, while doing my addiction to adult coloring, though! LOL!)
I have successfully completed writing my WA review that I have placed in the top menu as MY HOW! (Please check it out to see if that's how this is done properly. Would appreciate your advice and any suggestions you may have to that! I get it to how important this is to be done correctly and really honor the brand that Kyle and Carson have created here in WA!
(This goes to any other WA member that could help me with this would be a blessing, too!)
I have a meeting with my cousin's son who is knowledgeable in Photography that may be able to help me with getting the Print File correct with my father's pictures so that Printful will accept it and I can then get my Millbrook Memories e-commerce store to come to life! ( I already have Woo-Commerce plug-in and Printful plug-in downloaded on this dashboard.) Just haven't been able to get the right images to meet their print file guidelines yet.
So there you have it- My update for this wonderful opportunity that you have guided me so far, Kevin to obtain!
I am so very grateful for all your help to have me get to this point in this journey on this BEST of the BEST Training platform for creating an online business and to actually have all the tools and help one would ever need to get it done!
Thank you so very much!
Have a GREAT Day!

Hi Diane,

Many thanks for your update. Wow! You're really progressing well with the training and your website. Your site is coming along really well with the new content you are adding. It's brilliant to see you uploading consistent new content. Your site is really personable. :)

Your WA review is great. You could actually add a separate page or post and call it "Wealthy Affiliate Review." This would be best for SEO and for ranking in the search engines. You could work on adding more content to your WA review. There is so much to write about here. You could write about the education, courses, community, domains, hosting, affiliate program. How does WA really benefit people? Most people join to build there own website in their passion and monetize it. WA provides this and more so you really have the opportunity to convey this to your audience. So many people are looking to do this.

Again, well done Diane! :)

Hi! Kevin,
In welcoming Edward, I could not help go back to review your impressive and inspiring profile and bio. I noticed you offered the newbies "Diamond Traffic bonus" if they sign into Premium in 7 days of FREE trial. I wished I could be one of them. Now I have been with WA since 9/25/2017. Since, I have completed Certification training and at 15% of Affiliate Bootcamp, and have being building www.ebettercare.com and www.bestedcare.com, but still not in the mode of monetization.

So, if your mind is fitting and time allows, I do appreciate your taking a look into these 2 sites and offer your comment and suggestion so to push these sites into their desired orbit of e-marketing sphere as soon as possible.

Sorry for intrusion, and apprecaite your support and help.

Hi Chin,

Many thanks for your kind words. I've taken a look at both your sites and they are very impressive. How do you manage juggling 2 sites? For many, this can be a challenge and I always recommend working on one niche website initially and work towards your goals with that site first. Once you have reached and surpassed your goals with that site then you can opt to build another site.

I recommend to possibly work on one site. I can see they both can compliment each other and you can link back and forth with both sites but I feel it makes more practical sense to just work on the one site.

Keep building out your site with more content and set a goal to post content of 100 - 300 posts this year. It's a huge challenge but your niche has so much content to write about. Your traffic will start to become solid and increase immeasurably over time.

You're doing superb Chin! Keep up the great work. :)

Hi! Kevin,
Thank you kindly for pointing out the practical need to focus on one site. This could be a head-striking call to stop being too proud or ambitious or diversifying.

But where and how can I start implant affiliate links to products?

Much appreciated,

Hi Kevin, if I could just pick your brain a bit, I would like to get some advice on which direction to go. I joined a digital product ppc program and am wondering the best way to build an email list/advertise it. I don't have a whole lot of extra cash for solo ads so don't want to spend a lot of money or create a website on here, launch it and try the SEO route. I have some freebie materials too to hhok people in but not sure exactly how to use those either. I am as green as green gets! Thank you for any advice to can give me!

As I did that this morning I noticed that 2 of the people I followed had come to WA through you, that's cool!. This made me think so I read your profile. You are impressive and congratulations on reaching your initial goal, that is awesome. I hope by following you to learn a bit to help me with my own goals, great job and continued success!

Hey kevin i remember you sent me a message when i first started it was like a bunch of blue tabs that where the first training steps that i took before building my website. i clicked on read messages but i only see the newest message so how can see the older messages you sent me? And can you send me that link again the one with the training steps i believe that getting rolling is one of them this is the only way i think that i can correct my niche wich i mispelled since no one has been able to help me this is like the tenth time i ask for help but no help. i see no point of going premium if im not getting help now. i really want to fix this problem before moving on i want my niche name flawless

Hey Eric, yes I sent you a welcome message. It was the very first message I sent. To access it you need to click on your profile: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/justice7 and then just scroll down to the very bottom of the page. You should then be able to see the very first message I sent you.

To get started with Course 1 you need to click here: I think what may have confused matters about your misspelt niche is that you can't misspell a niche. I think you have got confused between a niche and a website. You can misspell your website name and that is easy to correct if you have used SiteRubix to build your website.

The best thing to do here Eric is start over with Course 1. Take your time going through each lesson. As you go through the lessons you can build a new website with the correct name or you can edit/correct the mispelt name of your current website (if you have already start building one) in SiteRubix.

Let me know how you get on.

Kevin

Kevin, that was one of the best written bio's I've read yet. Such sage advice from your previous mentor, Jim Rohn! I agree that doing things with others can help to lesson the burden, and in this case it's the gaining of knowledge and wisdom to create a successful online future. Thank you for your willing attitude to help others and I may have to take you up on that offer at some point. I'm new to the community and am just creating my first ever webpage and forging through the lessons. I'm having a great time and I'm thrilled to be part of this WA community. I will look forward to reading your posts, interacting, contributing, and learning. Great to meet you Kevin and I will see you around the WA community!

Kevin,
This is very compelling. I was referred by a friend and had no idea what to expect. Coincidentally, she is an attorney as well. I've almost always trusted her judgment and advice. So, I signed on and was very pleasantly surprised. I never mind working hard, but I do mind working hard at something that I don't love. I've done that for years. I'm excited about what's ahead. You've let me know that my financial goals are well within reach.
Thank you,

Hello, Kevin! thank you for your support!
Have to tell, even I was thinking about affiliate business for long time and even tried some programs like John Thornhill's one, it was so complicated for me to start and understand it. Although, I was in school for my BSN degree, working full and overtime as a nurse and being busy as wife and mom, I was always remembering that one day I will be able to do something different than what I am doing right now! it is interesting that you mention a MLM business. I found Wealthy Affiliate just few days ago after I was reviewing the best MLM companies to join one. I like to be a student again and earn my 3/4 degree in affiliate marketing!
To our success!
Happy and prosper New 2018 year to you and your family!
