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 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 to choose a respectable profession like a doctor, lawyer or accountant. What about the artists, sculptors, musicians, poets. Sigh, a dreamer I hear you say but do they 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. The biggest challenge I faced was was my own mindset and personal development. Your income can only grow if your mindset grows. That's the biggest tip I can give you.

Several years later I came across WA and I have now been here for over 5 years. In those 5 years, I have qualified for the WA Las Vegas conference 4 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

Hi Kevin. When it comes to setting up the Paypal account, so I can get money paid to me, do I need to set up a personal one or a business one?

https://www.paypal.com/ca/for-you/account/create-accounthttps://www.paypal-community.com/t5/About-Payments/Paypal-for-accepting-affiliate-payments/td-p/1307293

Do you have a link to a video from Kyle on how to set it up? Or can you send me a link to the page where I will be able to set this up please.

Please can you respond ASAP.

Kind Regards,

Warren Jones

Hi Warren,

You just need a personal PayPal account to receive commissions.

If you go to the PayPal website they will walk you through how to set a personal account. It’s very straightforward.

Sorry to hear that Mitch. It’s a learning curve for most of us who start a new online business especially if you’re new to this industry.

Don’t worry though as the step by step training will teach you how to add images and how to source relevant affiliate programs. It’s all coming up in the training so keep working on your current lesson so you don’t miss any important steps.

Hi Kevn,
While I'm on training creating a website, is that the final one I will be hosting or do I have a choice of creating new one? Also now I'm a premium member, registering a domain name is part of this membership or do I need to purchase?
Thanks.

Hi Praneshkumar,

You can create and host 25 websites as a Premium member. Registering a domain name is not part of the membership so you will need to buy this separately.

Hey Kevin, thanks for all your e-mails. This has been a wonderful experience so far. I do have a question, though. I am trying to create a page on my website and want to insert a link to my e-mail address instead of just having it where the guest has to copy it and then go to their e-mail. I would like for them to just click it and then they can send me an e-mail. When I insert the link, then click it, I keep getting an error 404 page that pops up. Can you tell me what I am doing wrong or show me where to find this information?
Thanks!

kevinmj Premium
Hey Andrew, great to hear you’re enjoying your time here at WA!

To make your email clickable here’s what you’ll need to do:

When adding a link to an email address, you need to replace the http part with mailto: prefix followed by the email address you want to link to.

Here is an example:
mailto:john@example.com

Here is how you will add it in a WordPress post:

Select the text you want to add the link to and then press CTRL+K (Command+K on Mac) or click on the ‘Insert Link’ button in the post editor. This will bring up the insert link popup where you need to add your mailto link.

Click on the apply button to close the insert link popup.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need any further help with this Andrew.

Hi Kevin,
Extremely disappointed to see that a Canadian Company has decided to charge in US Dollars, while the whole time misleading me and others I'm sure, that you are quoting figures that appear to me at least, to be in Canadian Dollars. Why would you not make it clear upfront that you are charging American Dollars? For crying out loud, Kyle, you live in the same city as I do, I do not know why you would not make it clear from the start that you are charging me a fellow Canadian in American Dollars! I'm rethinking my whole association with you, as I feel I have been mislead from the start, and that it was not an unusual assumption for me to make, that as a Canadian Company that you would charge Canadian Dollars. It's not the dollars difference, it's the deception, which makes me feel that what other surprised do you have?? Can you address this please, or at least give me some hope as I was really looking forward to a long and successful business adventure with Wealthy Affiliates!!

Sincerely,

Jim Tschritter.

Hi Jim,

Sorry to hear you feel that way. You’ll need to take this up with Kyle.

I’m based in the UK and get charged in US Dollars for the Premium membership and always knew this from the outset of joining WA back in 2014. Every WA member worldwide gets charged in US Dollars for their membership regardless of what country they reside in.

Again, Kyle can provide more clarification on this for you.

I will probably upgrade to Premium very soon, and I would like to ask you two questions;
1. From the time I enroll, about how much time passes, (approx.), till I could expect to see the site up and running, attracting clientele, and adding conversions?
2. When I register a .com Domain with WA, is there a charge?
Reply

That's awesome Jim!

There's no definitive time frame as everyone works differently depending on schedule, commitments, job, family, focus, motivation, etc.

yes there is a charge. The cheapest is $13.99 for the year. You can find out more in Site Domains:

Hi Kevin,

Thanks for all the replies. I'm not sure this program is for me. From what I understand WA platform is to be used to launch a WordPress site (blog or eCommerce) and fill it with affiliate products and try to drive traffic to it, by blogging with rich content.

I'm looking more to be the affiliate marker and the provider to help others make money online, or promote money making programs to help others. Its guaranteed easier to have someone buy when they are told they can make money, rather than pushing them to buy for example: apparel, pet items, etc...

Makes sense?

Thanks

kevinmj Premium
Hi Phil,

The make money online niche is fiercely competitive and it can be very challenging for new affiliate marketers to make any head way. It can be better to choose your own niche and promote that. You have more likelihood of building an authority website that ranks content on page 1 of Google. Of course, it's your choice what you decide to do.

Hi Kevin, Thanks for the message! Okay so I am thinking for niche topic.. wait for it. Poop! yes poop it makes me laugh thinking about poop topics. Yes I never grew up from when I was small boy making jokes about poop and farting (and now it is great I can share my jokes with my boys who are 4 and 6!). okay so yes I have a strange/off sense of humor but the poop business is big business (think squaty potty and related items) and I personally have had health issues that revolve around poop and gut health so while funny also serious topic. I am thinking a site that mixes humor with important relevant products and information that help people that have problems related to their poop!

Let me know what you think!

Sounds like you have a great niche Collin. You can definitely take this passion and turn it into a successful business with some direction and a little elbow grease here at WA. We are all about turning a passion into a business and that is what our training is going to walk you through.

Reply
kevinmj Premium
I recommend to work through the step by step training Pradip. You can go at your own pace and ask questions along the way.

Choosing your niche can be the most challenging part when starting out.

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

Niche choosing
I live in State College, PA. Run one of the largest sports bars on the East Coast. Can I use Penn State(they are currently the largest Alumni association in the world, and my co manager is best friends with Joe Jonas of the Jonas Brothers) as a niche? Direct traffic to Amazon sites selling PSU stuff. Or is it protected by the trademark of PSU? I noticed Amazon had tons of PSU gear and drinkware on the site.

Sports and fitness, martial arts and beer/alcohol are my 3 areas of expertise. Atmospheric science being another strong area.
Reply
kevinmj Premium
You will need to contact them directly to ascertain the trademark position.

Sounds like you have some great interests. You can definitely take any one of these and create a business here at WA. We are all about turning a passion into a business and that is what our training is going to walk you through.

Hi Kevin,

I have been doing pretty well with writing my blog: godblessworkingparents.com. I would like to put it out there for the world to see, but I am a little nervous about it. I am even nervous to ask the community to look at it, I think because I have some strong opinions and I do not know if I need to "tone it down" a bit more or if I did okay with keeping it balanced....since you are my coach, would you be interested in reading some of the posts and giving me your honest opinion first?
Reply
kevinmj Premium
Your site is coming along nicely Angela. You don’t need to tone it down at all. A blog gives you the opportunity to put your own personal stamp on it. The right audience will be attracted to your own unique style of writing and beliefs. That is what you want to accomplish so I recommend to keep creating and publishing new content.

Hi Kevin,

I trust you are well. I would like to check with you on a couple of points in regards to websites, domains and niche. Here it is: I have two websites which I created some time ago and they are associated with my local business in Oxford, UK. One is IT support consultancy www.oxquip.co.uk ; and social events at www.oxfordcitysocial.com. They are both WordPress supported. My questions are:

1. Do I need to transfer my websites to WA platform or leave them as they are for now?
2. Following the Phase1 and Phase2 training at WA, Do you think it is a good idea to choose a niches relevant to my old websites (IT, Social Events) or it would be better to start with a new niche which I can develop from scratch following the WA training? I think I already have an idea for a new niche in mind.

If you could help with this it will be great.

Thank you and have a great day,

2) I can build an authority site around damp and condensation and mould issues (the site is dampdetective.com). I can blog easily on this as it is my bread and butter in my daily life. BUT, I struggle to see how I could promote WA using this site as my audience would be people with damp problems

Ideally, I would like to go with the first option but I could learn the ropes and promote WA with the second option (damp detective) and begin to build up a future (and more enjoyable) site on the first option (traveling affiliate) as my skills (and content) improve?

If you have any thoughts on these matters they would be most welcome as I feel like I could begin going round in circles

I wondered if you might be able to offer some advice? I believe I will enjoy writing content once I am up and running

I would like to promote Wealthy Affiliates and I am following two lines of thought:

1) One thought is to target people who wish to earn money as an affiliate while travelling. (my site would be travelingaffiliate.com). One question is whether I can include other Affiliate programs in the website such as Skyscanner?
Also, this may be a very competitive (large) market in which case I guess that I would need to narrow down the niche? – perhaps targeting people close to retirement who are planning to travel, or,

I recommend you focus on your own niche site Chris. Don’t mix it with promoting WA. Later on when you are more experienced in affiliate marketing you can then decide whether to go through the Bootcamp to promote WA.
Reply
BandanaChris Premium
Many thanks Kevin.

What was putting me off my own niche site is that there didn't seem to be many (if any) supplier affiliate programs with the products.

However, there are many of the products on Amazon. Would this be a valid way of earning a potential commission (as a start)?
ie. directing traffic to Amazon.

I feel that I could review quite a few products (from experience)
If so, I think I should be on my way!

Hi Kevin,

Hope you are having a great day.

I'm currently building a site using englishhandmadeshoes.siterubix.com
I would like to use the domain of englishhandmadeshoes.com and have seen I can register it through yourselves for £13.99.

I have seen I can register it with other companies for other prices and this includes email addresses that will make it look more pro.

my questions are:-

1. Is this the best time to sort this now so I don't have to redo things for example privacy policy etc?

2. If I register it through you does it include email addresses and whats the yearly price following on?

3. If I transfer if from else where you are asking for a verification code. What is this?

many thanks

Hi Jo,

Thanks for your message.

Here are the answers to your questions:

1. If you can get the domain now then I recommend you do ASAP before anyone else buys it.

2. Yes you can create domain specific email addresses which are explained in the training. The yearly price is usually $13.99.

3. It’s a verification code you get from company where you bought the domain. If you buy the domain here at WA then you don’t need to be concerned with that.

Hope this info helps.

HI kevinmj, I'm just going through Lesson 4 BUilding your website and I have a question - I'm in the process of choosing my niche (healing diet vs passive income for working mums). I don't have any content yet, as you can imagine, but I seem to spend a lot of time (too much) choosing the name of my domains and the type of website (free or paid). I seem to remember reading that free domains are difficult to list in Google and that they will always lose with more established domains like .com ro .net. I would appreciate your help.
Reply
kevinmj Premium
Great question Anna! Course 2 goes into more detail about this. Here’s some info from that training:

‘At this point, you are likely using a free .siterubix.com website. These domains can rank, but something that you might want to consider moving forward is owning your own "virtual real estate" or domain.

Having your own .com, .org, or .net domain carries some real incentives. These are as follows:

An Asset You Own.

When you purchase a domain, you own it. Nobody else can come take it from you. In the same way that we own WealthyAffiliate.com (and I will be purchasing another domain in this lesson), you will own your very own domain. You are also in full control of every aspect of your domain.

Domains Increase in Value.

As you build . out your website and your domain, it will increase in value just like any real estate asset.

They Rank Better.

Having your own domain will lead to better rankings in Google, Bing & Yahoo which own 99% of all searches online. This is a big deal.

These are just three of the main reasons and for the price of owning your very own domain, it is well worth it.’

Hey Kevin, just had a quick question I have uploaded my about me post and privacy page but I notice that when I visit my website the theme has not been applied. Is this normal? I noticed that in the training videos, it seems like the theme has already been applied when the about me post and privacy page were being uploaded

Hey Troy! Great that you have published your content. Did you change the theme from the original theme you had? If so, you may want to log out of your website, clear the cookies/cache on your PC, and then have a look at your site again. Try on different browsers and devices too. Let me know how you get on.

No I have kept the same theme. It always has shown in just a black and white format since I initially began.

Hi Kevin,
I hope you're doing well.

I am building my website on WordPress 5.2.3 running Twenty Seventeen theme. I don't find anything that adds a multilanguage. Like many other blogs and websites published in different languages, I want to publish my content in Spanish and Italian too.

Also, is WA my website/domain maintainer? How can I publish officially my blog once I finish?

Thanks

Hi Alessandro,

Thanks for your message.

You can search for language translation plugins in your WordPress admin. I'm not sure how good these are. It may be better to build a website from the outset in either Spanish or Italian. It really depends on which countries you are mainly targeting.

If you have bought a domain here at WA and you've built your website here, then WA will be hosting both your domain and website.

You can publish content every time you create a new post or page. You can schedule these to go live whenever it's suitable for you but generally most people publish new content as soon as they've created it. You want the search engines to start crawling and indexing your content as soon as possible as it can take time for your content to start ranking on page 1 of Google (for example).

Hope this helps.

Kevin

Hi there Kevin.....I hope your having a great day.

My niche is going to be helping local businesses get listed on google maps through the Google business tool.

I have a lot of other ideas to incorporate into the business model ......building them a Web presence if they don't have a site, getting them linked to social media advertising if they want that , setting up the businesses that have repeat custom an email auto responder series to connect with their clients etc and a few more ideas too.

Any business who wants the website service will have to sign up +host the site through WA ........this will create a recurring income for myself +make the whole project easier for me to manage.

I'm just looking for some of your thoughts on my idea and to know if you think this is a good online business model for me ?


Thanks ,

Gareth

Sounds like you have a great niche Gareth. You can definitely take this passion and turn it into a successful business with some direction and a little elbow grease here at WA. We are all about turning a passion into a business and that is what our training is going to walk you through.

Hi Kevin,
So, I, not really sure where to start. I want my own business but I am afraid I guess of losing money that I cant afford to lose.
Also, I just want to sell and earn money, does being part of WA mean that I have to try find new subscribers?

I've been looking at Clickfunnels and wondering if I should maybe do my own thing with getting something together and then sell on Amazon. Can you let me know pros and cons please?

Thank you!

Hey Sheila,

Thanks for your message.

You can build 2 free websites here at WA and you can remain a free member. There is also a lot of free training available.

Premium will give you access to all the courses, tools, support and community. If you're ultra serious about creating long term success then Premium optimises your success.

I use ClickFunnels and Amazon too and a host of other affiliate programs. It's an industry and a network where you'll find most affiliate marketers are using the same tools/programs.

You got to think in terms of building a business and having an entrepreneurial mindset. I've been recommending Robert Kiyosaki's "Rich Dad Poor Dad" book to so many new members recently as this book helped change my way of thinking about financial scarcity (see the thread below from Blake)

If you need any guidance as you progress through the lessons then let me know.

Wishing you great success!

Just curious. I'm thinking if I do well in this, a little bit down the road when I'm making more than $50 a month, I will go premium. That way it pays for itself. How long did it take you to get to that point where WA was paying for itself?
Reply
kevinmj Premium
You don’t want to think like that Blake. This is a business you’re building and with any serious business you have to invest time, effort and capital to get it started and scale it further. Imagine you opened a restaurant or a grocery store would you wait until you were making the money before starting up? It’s all about having an entrepreneur mindset and thinking up ways to start, build and scale your business further. I highly recommend reading Robert Kiyosaki’s ‘Rich Dad Poor Dad’ book. That book changed my way of thinking from a 9 to 5 corporate employee to a fully fledged business owner.

As you have bought your own domain then yes you would need to be a Premium member to build a WordPress website with your own domain.

You could build a free website using a SiteRubix sub-domain and then transfer that site over to your own domain. Again, it's your choice. Probably simpler just to build your site from the outset using your own domain.

A couple of weeks ago I purchased a godaddy domain - robandlyndajay.com - and pointed the nameservers towards WA as instructed. This has been verified by a community member. I have entered the new domain in the box provided but under hosting it says 'Ready' but not 'Live' like my previous website. Surely I should be able to start building the new site. So why is it not live and allowing me to build a new website? This is very frustrating as I wish to get going asap.

Reply
kevinmj Premium
Hi Yueth,

Choosing your niche can be the most challenging part when starting out.

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/passions?
What do you think would be interesting to research and write about on a regular basis?
What do you want to help people with?
What's currently missing in the market?

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!

Hi Dominic,

Thanks for your reply. Great that you have a general idea about your niche. Your niches are very popular and broad so you would need to narrow them down.

What aspect of the niche do you want to help people with?

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche. I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience.

What can also help is to think outside the box and dig deep into researching this market. What's currently missing in this market or what could you do better than what's currently available?

After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will provide you with some feedback. :)

Reply
kevinmj Premium
Hi Landa,

Thanks for your message.

This is quite a grey area. Some folks add links straightaway and some wait until they start to have solid daily traffic that could convert. With Amazon Associates you get 180 days to make 3 sales or they close your associates account. If you're getting traffic then go ahead and add links. I think though you only have 3 or 4 posts so you may want to keep creating more and more content until your daily traffic increases then add your links to your posts. It can be tedious to go back to your posts and add the affiliate links but it could turn out to be a saving grace.

You want to focus on a specific area. Even anti-aging skin-care is very general. Can you narrow this down further? You don't want your content lost within the millions of other pages similar to yours on the search engines.

What can also help is to think outside the box and dig deep into researching this market. What's currently missing in this market or what could you do better than what's currently available?

Hi again, how's your day going?

I picked an idea for my website, the niche would be sort of "self-help" (aimed to "wellness"), it won't go about anything specific; a post can go about mindfulness, the following about online dating after 50, the following about a weekend in Brussels... I don't know if it's a good idea but it's something I will like to do.

I wanted to ask you if it's a problem that the website will be in Spanish. I guess not…

Thanks!

kevinmj Premium
Hi Emilio,

My day's going well! How's your weekend going so far?

Great that you have a general idea about your niche. The wellness niche is very popular and broad so you would need to narrow it down.

What aspect of the niche do you want to help people with? You're really looking for 'a niche within a niche.' If your niche is too broad you'll find it very hard to rank your content on page 1 of the search engines where people are mainly looking.

Mindfulness, as an example, in itself is a great niche but can you narrower it down further to focus on a particular topic? Online dating after 50 is again a niche itself. You could absolutely build a website in that niche. Again, could you narrower it down further?

What can also help is to think outside the box and dig deep into researching these markets. What's currently missing in these markets or what could you do better than what's currently available?

After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will provide you with some feedback. :)

I have the feeling that I am creating the website too soon (e.g. if I knew how sites get ranked, then I wouldn't have come up with such a general idea). Does it make sense?

Also, when you write "What can also help is to think outside the box and dig deep into researching these markets. What's currently missing in these markets or what could you do better than what's currently available?", sounds like if I am talking about "online dating after 50", I should have a dating system that is better than the existing ones. And this is not the case at the moment, I don't have my own "product" to market.

My idea was more to have a blog that attracts traffic and that can use different affiliate programs. But it looks like to attract traffic, the content must be very specific, am I right?

You are gonna end up hating me, sorry!

About the language: I assume you have people writing their websites not only in English.

BTW, when I tried to change the theme on my website, it says "bad request". I don't know if it is because I am not a premium member yet.

Thanks a million :)

Most of your questions are answered in the step by step training Emilio.

We are getting to a dead-end here: you are not understanding my questions.

What I learned in lesson 1 here is the same I've been "learning" the for the last few weeks on other platforms :).

How am I supposed to know if every new post on a blog can be used to rank the whole blog? I don't know if this can work or not...

Thanks anyway, I appreciate your efforts. I'll try to find the answers somewhere else.

Great that you are on moving forward with the training. You absolutely want a narrow niche. Having too broad a niche will make it very hard to rank your content on page 1 of the search engines and your content will just get lost in the millions of other similar content pages.

Hey Kevin, here it goes my first doubt. Following the training, I should create my website now. Questions: Can I just create a website about no matter what while I decide what my niche will be? Like something to train without getting stuck while I make up my mind.

Not clear if this will be my final website or just one to practice. I guess I have to get my own domain at some point, add some features if I become premium... Not sure my question is clear :)

It’s best to choose your niche first and then build your website. You can of course experiment with building a website but to save time and effort, personally I would just get on with building a niche website.

I recommend following the step by step training, starting with lesson one. This teaches you how to choose your niche.

Hope this makes sense Emilio. :)

I am following it step by step, but it's was not clear if I'd be creating a "real" website or not... Now it is :)

Truth is I haven't decided my niche yet, and promoting AW having zero experience in the field doesn't add much credibility to my site.

It's time for a beer here in Brussels and think a bit before moving on.

Thanks Kevin! (where are you, BTW?)

That's awesome Emilio! You will definitely be creating a real website.

I wouldn’t promote WA until you are much more experienced in affiliate marketing. It’s much better to build your own niche site first.

We are sharing the same "heatwave" then (27ºC tomorrow! :)

Honestly, I am super stuck with the niche choice... and, as we both agree, it makes no sense at all to promote WA at this point. I don't even know in which language I will do my first website.

I think I will create one to test to move on, otherwise I can't evaluate if I am happy or not with WA. I can always delete it afterwards and create a new one.
Reply
kevinmj Premium
Yes sure you can create one to test.

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?

Sorry to see you go Emma. You and your agent could still build your website here using the WA hosting as you have the domain here already.

To transfer your website name over you’ll first need to find another hosting company. The company you choose will provide you with their own DNS settings and the transfer procedure.

Hi, i'm trying to find my niche...i live in England! i'v been looking through your Affiliate Programes and i am struggling to find something that i would be passionate about. As christmas is just around the corner i thought perhaps "kids toys" or something christmas related may be a good start?? I appreciate that i am a "newbie" i will be able to upgrade my account on the 23rd Sept (pay day) i'm hoping i'll make it in time for the discount! Any advise on the above and also keeping in mind that i'm British and not that familiar with the American Market.
thanks

Hi Amanda,

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!

Kevin

P.S. I live in England too and you can promote your affiliate programs/products worldwide. :)

Question for you! I'm wondering who can help me. I published a post and when I go on my domain, the content of my post isn't there but I see the title. When I'm in word press and click on the post, I do see the content. I tried removing the plug ins but it didn't resolve the issue. Thoughts?

Also, I tried changing my theme to see if that was the issue, as I had did changes recently. That didn't resolve it however, now when I click on the title that as no content, it shows up under the old them, even though I've changed it. Clicking on another title brings me back to the proper theme.

In reference your question what's my goal. It is to create a big enough business so I can live comfortably with my partner and not have to worry about money as much. I have a goal of 500 a month as I'm not sure how good I will be but if I could turn that into 1000 plus that would be a dream for me

Hi, kevinmj, I hope you're doing well. I've just started the Wealthy Affiliate program and I've reached lesson 3, selecting a niche subject.

I spent the last 2 years traveling the world (Asia, Australia, Europe and North America with a brief stint in Colombia) with a photojournalism job so I was leaning towards a niche site of "minimalism travel." I'm fairly well versed in this, but I'm worried that this market is heavily saturated, making it more competitive than other interests.

In any event, I would appreciate your input and opinion.
Best regards,

Hello Kevin,
So I have a few questions.

1. Do the sites have to be blogs? It looks as though most sites are set up to be blogging sites, however I have seen examples of sites in the videos of just selling items through links. If so, will there be trainings on how to set up those types of sites.

2. Can I set up a site through WA to direct sell? Or if I wanted to do that would I need to use another website platform?

I am definitely taking it slow, but I have the personality that just wants to get through it and get to the good stuff (making money!LOL!). I am trying really hard to be patient and do things right!:)
Thank you for your help.

Hello Jenny,

The step by step training mainly teaches how to promote your affiliate programs and products through blogging. This is the most ethical way to promote online using seo. The search engines don’t like just links on a page and you run the risk of getting your website banned on Google for doing that so it’s definitely not worth it.

You could create an online store or e-commerce site but you’ll still need to have written content on your site. There’s no quick way to get round it and it does take time researching and creating content on a regular basis. Again, it’s well worth doing as over time you’ll start seeing success with your site. :)

I'm going to take my time with lesson 6. The "about me" page. It seems pretty important and I really don't know how to talk about myself and make it interesting. So ya, I need to think about what I'm going to write. Just not too much time because I do want to move forward
Reply
kevinmj Premium
Your about me page is in essence, a page just about you. Why are you interested in this particular niche and why do you want to help others out? Share that along with a bit about yourself and an image and you will be just fine.

There is no right or wrong with an about me page, it is simply a page about you and you can dictate what is said on that page (and you can always update this as you progress within your niche).

Here is some training that will help you out on the About Me page: If you want me to take a look at it after it is published I will be happy to help you out. Hope this helps Timothy!

Hey Kevin,

Sorry it took a bit to get back with you. For my ideas, I am thinking of going with a new one this time.

"Virtual Reality"

I have done other sites in the past but they are mostly for practicing developing techniques. But I have started a few sites on my own server.

https://www.hikingthepacificnorthwest.com/
https://www.bestbtcinvestments.com/

Never finished these sites as the server setup would take too long to maintain. Now that I don't have to worry about that and can focus on generating content.

My interests right now involve software/data engineering along with development in VR. I figured VR would be easier to start with, but I am thinking about eventually hitting all of these again.

Thoughts? and Thank you for all your advice and help!

I knew it was a really bad idea to reject those live seminars online. But a good idea to respond to everyone who messages me.

So it's no good for me just yet.
But thank you so much for liking one of my comments. As soon as you did, a message came up that told me a "like" on my comments helps my status within wealthy affiliates. So I went back and started liking every comment everybody was making towards me. Lol thank you!

Kevin, I have a problem since the confusion over accounts occurred! Under the account Mercadier, I had developed 2 sites -mercadierwriting.com and mercadieraffiliatemarketing.com. As part of the solution, I had created a new site 'Bev's Golf.' She didn't want anything to do with websites and I had it deleted.
Subsequently, I was invited to open a new site, which of course none of my training history was available to me. That site is O'Neill2. I decided to catch up on all of the training but lost my network and questions. I nee now need to transfer the domain mercadierwriting to WA. I have requested a verification code from GoDaddy. but now my question is, will the transfer bring every thing accross?

Unfortunately I cannot find your message so I can't figure out how to make sure I officially cancelled my membership. The bad news is that WA didn't honor my request to not bill me today and the charge hit my credit card.
Can you please tell me how to assure that my membership was cancelled last week, and also how to rescind WA's charge to my credit card? This was the reason I needed to cancel. I simply don't have the money to participate right now.

Hi Michael,

Yes sure you can join relevant affiliate networks but they will be similar to WA. Ideally, you want to find relevant affiliate programs to promote. Have you looked at the products on Amazon or Sharesale?

I can see from several questions you've asked that you are finding it difficult to find relevant affiliate programs for your niche, "healthy cereals". If you can't find any for "healthy cereals" then why not change your niche? You could focus on "healthy meals for vegans" or "meatfreeketodiet" or "healthy breakfast for weightloss" or "nowhey,no glutein, no dairy breakfasts." These are just a few ideas but there are a huge amount you may find by researching which will have affiliate programs you can promote.

Hi Kevin! I just joined Premium today. I saw your message earlier about the 'diamond training' that you would throw in if I jumped on registering for Premium in the next 24 hours. Alas, I missed the boat! I joined Premium very shortly after however. I was wondering if you would consider providing me with the 'diamond training' nevertheless - I have a 7 month old and he keeps me crazy busy! I didn't mean to delay but got sidetracked.

Kevin,

Iv'e done as you suggested and continued. I followed Kyle step by step and something is missing. I can not move forward until I make at least two comments and I cant do that without gravatar. I tried to create a gravatar account and it did not follow like Kyles. It said I already had account. I do not and never been there. I'm not able to move on. aggravated here.

Hi Don,

Great to hear you’ve continued with the training.

Have you followed this specific training on how to create a gravatar? There are other trainings too if you search on the WA search bar.

Below is a link also where you can provide feedback on websites. You may find it useful.

Still very early days for you Don. Keep moving forward with the lessons until you complete all 5 courses. Take your time going through easy lesson making sure to carry out the action tasks. Your site will take shape as you build out your site with more and more content. It’s important to remain patient as the building of your site is a work in progress.

Dear Kevinmj; I am in a rut; and am hitting my head; metaphorically against the wall. I am trying to get on with the training. But I am stuck; I hope that you can help? I tried all the searches I am about to say; "+affiliate Program". I tried "Cereal", "Healthy Cereal" and "Organic Cereal" I have an article on Cereal that I would like to put Links to. But, with Cereal; I can`t find any pages that have Affiliate Programs. I hope I am not annoying you? But, I have tried my best. Can you look up an Affiliate Program that goes with like: "Healthy Cereal"?

Thanks:

Hi Michael,

Who are the main brands in your niche? Have you researched online to see if they have affiliate programs or partner programs?

Kevin, I sent an email to Kyle last week asking to have my subscription cancelled. As you know from all of my emails, I have been extremely frustrated with Word Press. I love Wealthy Affiliate and will probably come back some day. But I need to get my website up and functioning and I just can't do it through Wealthy Affiliate and Word Press. I don't want to pay another month's fee on August 18, so I asked Kyle to cancel my account on August 10. No reply.
Please cancel my account or tell me how to cancel it. I want to avoid paying that fee.
Thanks for everything you've done...or tried to do, Kevin.

Sorry to hear that Tom.

You can cancel your Premium membership in your "Account Settings" then click on "Subscriptions Settings" then "Membership" then "Stop Billing & Cancel Membership"

Keep in mind that you can re-subscribe back to Premium at any stage.

Also, if you have any websites that are hosted here at WA then you'll need to move them to another hosting company within 30 days of cancelling your membership if you still want to keep them.

Wishing you all the best.

Hello mr. Kevin, im sorry to interrupt you but I need some opinion or advice on my site and content, i am writing articles, and put some amazon products, now, i want to know how much products review should i make, for now i have 2, i dont know if i pht like 10 of them will that be too much, for now I am adding valuable informations to rank site better and attract visitors, but I want to monetize site as much as possible, and without product reviews where I will get more commision I dont think its possible.. and if you could give me some overall feedback so I know if Im going in the right direction. thank you very much.

Hey Petar,

Great to hear that you’re creating new content. You can never really stop creating new content. Some folks post an article a day or even more. Just think, content, content, content. Never stop creating content. It really is unlimited as to how much content you can create and post per day.

Big tip for you: Watch Gary Vaynerchuck (garyvee) on You Tube as much as possible. He talks about how important it is to create/post content everyday and we’re not talking about just writing articles... ;)

Kevin, I have a serious problem with wealthy affiliate! I have sent various messages to various people including support, Kyle and you. Once again the issue is that I tried to create a site and did not proceed. The consequence of this action prevented me from getting back to my established sites. i.e. I can't access my training progress. Every time I try to access my other two sites, I end up at a new site in the training, and you are my coach. So there are two problems; 1, I can't remove the new site, and 2 I can't access my original site to access my training. I need someone to attend to those two issues, please. My Member name is Mercadier, and the other two working sites are Mercadier writing and Mercadier Affiliate Marketing.

Hi O'neill,

Thanks for your message and sorry to hear about your issues.

What did Site Support and Kyle both say about resolving these issues? I’m surprised they have not resolved this for you.

I can see that you have two WA Premium accounts, Mercadier and Oneill2. This is probably what's causing the issue. You can only have 1 Premium account in WA.

Site Support and Kyle/Carson are the only people who can help as they have access to the back end of the platform when it comes to WA accounts. I especially recommend that you reach out to Kyle/Carson on this.

Thank you for your reply. I wasn't aware that you can only have one Premium account. I have asked Kyle to cancel the O'Neill2 account but didn't get a response.

Hi Kevin! I am choosing a niche and wanted to bounce my idea off of you. I am interested in mens sexual health, and was wondering if you think that is a good niche or if I should get more granular? For example, should I focus on something more specific like boosting testosterone or erectile dysfunction? Or is men's sexual health as a whole appropriate to focus on? Thanks for your input!
Reply
kevinmj Premium
Hi Steven,

Great that you have a general idea about your niche. Your niche is very popular and broad so yes you would need to narrow it down.

What aspect of the niche do you want to help people with?

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche. I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience.

What can also help is to think outside the box and dig deep into researching this market. What's currently missing in this market or what could you do better than what's currently available?

After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will provide you with some feedback. :)

Hi Kevin. I would like to see an actual WA website that is up and running and generating an income for its owner. I’ve overviewed the 10 lessons, and still have no idea how this business model works. I will not dedicate time to go through the lessons thoroughly until I can get an understanding of how this business works, and I definitely will not subscribe to premium package until I get I can understand this basic requirement. Do you have any information for me. Kind regards, Joe

Hi Joe,

Here are some posts from WA members who have had success with their sites. These are just a few and you can contact the members directly to liaise and get their site details. I can’t list their site here for spamming reasons:

#1: $12,000 For Christmas 2019 (+ Actionable Advice)

#2: Website Sold for $30,000 #3: $40K in 4 Hours #4: $3875 K for the month of January. Life Just Got Better again all Down to Wealthy Affiliate. The first 10 lessons do give an overview of how the business model works. I recommend to go over the 10 lessons again carefully, taking your time and to ask questions at any stage if you’re unsure of any part of the lesson.

I want to cancel a website that I created for my wife. She rejected it so I want to delete it. Kyle advised to go to the sie manage and just delete it, but it doesn't appear in the site manager. Moreover, my other sites now don't show in the manager. Please assist as am getting frustrated!
Reply
kevinmj Premium
What’s the site’s url?

It could be that your site was not created correctly or saved and that is why it’s not showing in the Site Manager.

Personally, if it was me, I would just move forward with the lessons and create another site. You can create 2 free websites with SiteRubix.

Hi Kevin,

I had emailed Kyle to let him know that I talked to my credit card company and WA should be able to try to put through the payment again because, for some reason, the payment would not go through, but I have not heard back from him. When I logged in it says that my payment has failed. Can you please look into this for me to make certain WA was able to try again?
Reply
kevinmj Premium
Hi Angela,

Kyle would need to deal with this. I’m sure he will get back to you. If you sent the email at the weekend then there may be a delay so I would wait 24/48 hours. If you have not heard back then I recommend you send another email. You could also try the card again by putting in your card details again.

Hey Kevin,

I'm thinking about running a paid ads campaign on facebook for one of my affiliates. I've done this for other businesses, but I haven't done it for myself yet. Naturally, I'm a little nervous! I have a landing page built, autoresponders set up, and a lead magnet made. But, I keep hesitating for some reason.

Do you advise running a facebook ad campaign yet for an affiliate?

Thank you!
Reply
kevinmj Premium
You could test it for a month and see how it goes Jackie. It largely will depend on your budget and whether you’re prepared to spend that budget on Facebook ads. Some businesses have done very well through Facebook ads and have scaled their businesses to the next level and beyond.

Heyyy, how you doing today? Um...I'm not very good at writing and I've picked coffee as my niche and the fact that I love coffee is good but talking about it is hard. It's not that its hard it's just wording everything together and I'm stuck almost like I have writers block but I haven't started writing anything down yet. This is so new to me and im at work using my job's computer and I get off at 7pm and I don't and wont have a phone until I get paid on the 1st or either the 5th. what Im saying is can you please help me out some or can we chat tomorrow or something? I wont be in for work tomorrow until 7pm tomorrow night cause Mondays is the start of my night shifts and I get off at 7am.

Hey Apifiney,

I'm doing great! How are you?

I recommend to take your time working through the lessons. There's no rush to complete the courses or create content. Better to take your time to absorb the information.

As you start to create your first pieces of content you'll get more experienced over time.

The best tip I can give is to choose a niche you're passionate about. One that you can't wait to get out of bed in the morning and start researching and creating content. Or one that keeps you awake at night with ideas, ideas, ideas. If you're finding it a struggle so early on to create content then perhaps the niche you've chosen is not the right one?? You can always chose another..

Here's a blog post you may find helpful about how to write a product review:

Hi Michael,

I've answered in your earlier messages.

I recommend to just use the services/platform that WA offers. They have everything within their platform to build your website and online business.
Reply
michaelw777 Premium
Oh, and I wanted to say this too. If Kyle wants he can make a Video about this? It is under: "View Details." For when you are logging into the site I think. But, unless you put everything to "On.". When you try to get into your own Website; you get a message about: "No Privacy." and you can`t log in. So, maybe Kyle can make a Video about this for Beginners. Because; I couldn`t figure out what was going on. It took me a Long Time to figure out.

Thank You:

ICAAN is separate from WA. They are 2 different platforms.

WA offers their own web hosting, domains, email, Wordpress, website builder services etc to build your website and online business. You don't need to be concerned at all with ICAAN. To be honest I've never heard of them in my 20 years in this industry.

Hi Kevinmj
I am Samuel Lippse. I am Roberta Lippse's husband. Her profile is rlippse on WA.
She passed away on July 11th. We set the WA business up in her name to make it simpler to keep track of taxes. I want to know if I can transfer all of the WA membership and the domain to my name.
I don’t know how to do it? I want to continue with WA. I did the training and writing, she was never quite well enough to get started into it. I carried on for her until she could get started but unfortunately she didn’t get well.
I’m sorry to burden you with this but I am at a loss as to what to do.
Please, let me know what I can do.
Thank You.
Sincerely,
Samuel Lippse.

Hi Samuel,

Thank you for your message. Sorry to hear about Roberta. Please accept my sincerest condolences.

I'm sure you can transfer your WA membership to your own membership. If a domain was bought, such as a .com, then you would not be able to transfer that. You could just keep the domain as it is and transfer it to your own WA membership so it shows in your Site Manager.

I recommend that you send Kyle a private message and he'll be able to assist you here.

Kind regards,

Kevin
