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 there I think im kind of confused as to what wordpress is lol. Maybe you can help.. I am looking at themes here https://www.elegantthemes.com/preview/Divi/our-team/ and they are all wordpress but not available here on WA. I want to purchase a membership with them because I like what they offer but since I am a premium member I thought we would have access to any wordpress theme?
Reply
kevinmj Premium
Hey Dominique, elegant themes are a separate company. With WA you can choose over 7000 Wordpress themes as a Premium member.

You can buy a theme with elegant themes and then ask WA Site Support to transfer that theme over to WA so that it is hosted here.

Hi Prabodini,

Thanks for your message. You can't put your account on hold. If it's just one month then you may as well keep paying the membership. If it's longer than a month then you may want to consider cancelling your Premium membership. You can always rejoin Premium at any stage,

Thank yo for getting back to me Kevin.It's going to be few months until I get things sorted. How can I cancel the premium membership please?
Reply
kevinmj Premium
Sorry to hear that Prabodini.

You can cancel your Premium membership in your "Account Settings" and then "Subscriptions Settings"

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.

Hi Kevin,
For my niche I’m thinking about "Online Learning" although my area of expertise is in project management, I want to focus on general online learning...from cooking recipes to professional licenses/certifications courses...the so called Online self-Education Industry (107 billions industry ) and because I work as an online professor.

What do you think? Is there a lot of affiliate marketing in this area?
Reply
kevinmj Premium
Sounds like you have a great niche Eddie. 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.

If you ever need any guidance with the training then please don't hesitate to drop me a reply.

Hi Kevin,
Just a few questions that pop in my mind:
1.Ones we have the webpage up, running and getting profits, Does WA get any profit from our sales, aside of whatever our affiliate marketing agreement with the vendor?
2. Thinking about niches - Its better to target high sales things rather that small ones? at the end we are going to spend about the same in marketing in a $10 sales that in a $1,000 one, any thoughts?
Thanks in advance...

kevinmj Premium
Hi Eddie,

Thanks for your message.

No, WA gets no profit/commission from your sales where you are promoting affiliate programs with other companies aside from WA. WA will though make profit/commission if you promote WA and you get Premium referrals.

Both low ticket and high ticket affiliate products/programs have advantages/disadvantages. Over time it's best to promote both range of products.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for the welcome to WA. I do have one question. I am very interested in local business marketing. Specifically, I am interested in learning how to build sites for local companies and ranking them so as to generate customers for them (Lead Generation business Model). The model I believe is to rank the site using SEO and then the potential customer clicks on the site and then provides their information to be contacted by the company I would provide the lead to. I know little about it, but It was an interesting concept.
Are you familiar with this and is this something I can learn in WA. I do believe some of the training such as SEO will crossover but was curious of any further training that anyone has done such as showing how to reach out to potential clients, etc.

Hi Charles,

Thank you for your question.

The step by step training will teach you how to build websites in your niche and rank them in the search engines for targeted keywords.

Here's some info you may find useful: I recommend taking a brief look at the above training to get some general ideas and then start going through Course 1: Hope this helps.

Hey Kevin. Hope all is well with you. I had a question concerning my website. My question is that, on my home page of my website. I have about us and content pertaining to my niche. My question, is how do I delete Those two and create a good capture page without deleting all my content permanently? Or do I just start all over?
Reply
kevinmj Premium
Hey Nictaye,

I recommend you keep those 2 pages on your site. This is what Kyle recommends too in the training. Having blog posts or a blog roll on your home page is better for seo and conversions, especially when your site is new. Later on, when you start to get regular daily traffic to your site then you may decide on having a static page, like a lead capture page to funnel traffic into. For now, I would stay on track with the step by step training.
Reply
iAMTaye Premium
I have a question? For home on my website, I'm not pleased with it meaning the posts on my front page. How can I keep the content I wrote but change it and put it on a different page on your website, and change and put something different on the front page?
Reply
kevinmj Premium
I recommend to keep the home page as a blogroll. It's better for seo and conversions, especially as your site is new and won't have any traffic. Wait until you start getting decent daily traffic, possibly 1000 sessions of daily visitors, then look at changing the home page. Although, in saying this, you may want to keep it as it is if you are getting conversions.

Is there some program or platform available that allows you to keep track of your affiliate commissions instead of having to log into each separate back office for every program you promote?

For example, If I'm an affiliate promoting 30 different offers from 30 different companies, in order to check my earnings, I would have to log in to 30 separate back offices.

Is there a program available that allows you so see ALL of your stats and earnings in one place?

Thank You,
Howard

Hi Kevin, I'd like your assistance please. I have started with my website with the title: How to earn financial freedom online and I am thinking of following that as a niche - I wrote an about page and I think I may have been carried away a bit - is there a way I could ask you to comment on what I have written before I put it out there...? I'd like to add you to my buddy list as well please.

Thank you so much

This is what I wrote:

One of my mentors used to say:  Let your devils and demons pay you, meaning if you have anything at all that causes you pain, use it as a stepping stone to your success. In other words use your greatest challenges to create success in your life. What is your greatest Challenge? My challenge was as I grew older and older I discovered that I preferred working from home. I wanted more freedom, more time with my family so I had to find a way to do just that. Ever since the early 90's, I have done every course I could get my hands on that had the promise to give me the freedom to create an income online.  Most trainers stressed on the importance of "the list" and some were all about getting me to sell their programs or products and kept the list for themselves, then there were all those "Done for you" systems that weren't done at all.  I did Drop-shipping in the 90's and was disappointed by the fact that the quality of products was sometimes not as promised. Nothing seemed to work for me, was there something wrong with me, why couldn't I get it...? Oh, how about those funnels they kept talking about...? Eventually I started realising that most of these guys who come up with these ideas are only interested in selling a product, there was definitely no coaching as to how the product worked instead of them showing you how it worked, you got inundated with upsells of more garbage that's meant to make the useless product work better and once you get the upsell, you had to get another few upsells for it to work and it still didn't make any sense at all, I spent £1000's.Looking back now I realise my issue, I was looking for something outside myself to give my freedom yet in actual fact I am my own freedom.  I needed to have a mind renewal. It is Jim Rohn who said: Success is not to be pursued; it is to be attracted by the person you become.Looking back now I am grateful for all my past failures, all the numerous courses, it has all fueled my passion to learn and become an expert in the very subject that has been the greatest challenge to me.My own lesson here: Become more! My name is Kimberleigh Matthews, I have created this website to assist those people who want more out of life.  You know you deserve more and you are ready to Rise Up and be the gift of Magnitude that you've always known you Can Be by creating your own Financial Freedom Online no matter where in the world you are.  This is the Real Deal!

Greetings Kevin!! I look so forward to picking the brains of vested professionals as I traverse this affiliate pathway, and to gleaning wisdom from seasoned vets such as yourself and others of like mindedness and dedication. It is only up from here, eh? The sky is truly the limit with hard work and perseverance. 😊

Hi Kevin. I was just reading about how you ended up here. My story is similar. I took physical therapy because that’s the direction my parents pushed me in. I ended up disabled following a work injury. I neglected to get medical care because I thought I needed to keep working followed by 13 back surgeries that left me unable to walk or work. Now I am broken, broke and incomeless. I was hoping to ask you a question. I believe you followed the boot camp path? Which direction do you think is the best and why? While I know there is no get rich plan and everything requires work, I was hoping for one more bit of advice. Being broke, seriously broke, when do you feel is the best time to go premium? I am afraid if I move too soon, I would have to quit for financial reasons before I have a chance to see if I can win at this. Is this a legitimate concern or how would you recommend proceeding? I would truly appreciate any advice and knowledge you have to share. Thanks!

Hi Chris, I recommend to choose a niche you are passionate about. What are your passions and interests?

Going through the Bootcamp and promoting WA is really for those who can't come up with a niche idea, or really do want to venture into the make money online niche. This is an extremely competitive niche and not the ideal niche to go into when you're first starting out in affiliate marketing. Much better to choose a less competitive niche and one that is closer to your heart than stepping foot in the "lion's den" straightaway. :)

You don't need to go Premium. You can build 2 free websites with the free Starter level and there is a huge amount of free training available by searching on the WA search bar.

Wishing you great success! :)

Hi Kevin. One of the WA community told me you were the one that referred me to WA and I should contact you re mentoring? Is that correct? . Firstly I guess I should thank you for referring me, cos so far all is good :-)

I just sent out a question re mentoring. See my posted question below. Could you give me your 2 pennies worth?

I am new to WA and also the whole on-line marketing world.. I must admit I didnt realise how much was involved and overwhelming it can be. I am thinking that I could do with a mentor to help me get going, get clarity, push me to follow through and help me overcome the inner conflicts / doubts plus with the obstacles that will certainly come. Are there mentors at WA who can provide personal focused 1- mentoring? I know we have the amazing forum and also we can message Kyle, but I am thinking to get where I want to get I need a bit more than the forum and training videos. I dont think Kyle will appreciate me bombarding him with messages. Thank you so much

Can anybody recommend a good mentor wither through WA or external?

Thanks for your help Kevin.

Cheers Karl

Hi Karl,

Thanks for your message. It's great to have you on board here at WA. :)

Yes I did refer you into WA. I help out with answering any questions members have, including those I referred and those who were referred by others. I don't offer mentoring per se but can help answer any questions you may have via private messaging or here on my profile.

The set up here at WA, with the courses and community, are your 'mentors.' There may be some members who say they can offer mentoring but personally I would just work through the courses and use live chat, blog posts, post questions, Jay's weekly webinars. That's what I did 4 years ago when I joined. I qualified for the WA Las Vegas Conference 4 years in row by doing this.

In addition, Kyle and Carson created the WA platform and training and are the ones to go to for advice if you can't get answers from the training or community. I did actually contact Kyle frequently in my first 2 years here and he was absolutely brilliant. Sometimes, he was not be able to get back straightaway but when he did the answers he gives are the answers. :)

Everything is detailed thoroughly in the 5 Online Entrepreneur Certification courses and 7 phase Affiliate Bootcamp to help you create success online.

Hope this helps.

Reading your profile, I can totally relate. I was in banking for years and got sick and then they let me go. So here I was with no job, now what? So I went to school (about to graduate) and still wondering what am I going to do with this? I have always wanted to be my own boss and work from home online. This is a blessing in disguise.

Hey Kevin, Your profile is on point in so many levels, especially this lines - "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."

If I may add, 'the people we help become successful along the way'. I am not quite where I need to be (still a newbie), but with time and hard work, I will get there!

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 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?

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:

Hey Rose, no problem at all. :)

Great that you're going through the training. If you have any questions or need guidance then let me know.

I am based in Reading, UK and there are over a million members all around the world. I read you're in Birmingham. I'm a huge Aston Villa fan and looking forward to the derby on Sunday. :)

Yes we mainly use the Live Chat and private messaging features here at WA. There are also live weekly webinars you can listen into.

I recommend to take your time going through each lesson making sure to carry out the action tasks. There's a lot of help here within the community and if you have questions then be sure to ask.

Wishing you great success!

Hi Kevin. I am doing well. Ready for Thanksgiving dinner :). I found the link because I began looking up legal and legit ways of making money from home online. I'm currently pregnant and will going on maternity leave in February. My job does not offer paid leave or short term disability so I'm trying to have another stream of income. Through my search I found out about affiliate marketing and decided to give it a try. :) .

Hi Destiny, thanks for your message. It's great you found WA and ready to learn about affiliate marketing. This is a legit way to make money online. I've been in the online marketing/home business industry since 2002 and tried all different opportunities. WA is hands down the best legitimate opportunity I have come across and I've been a Premium member since 2014. You're in the right place here at WA to build a successful online business.

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.

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.

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.

There is also Site Support to help with any technical issues with your site.

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.

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! :)

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?

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.

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.

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?

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 :)

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. :)

Hello, I am really new to this and am soon going to learn more about this because I really want to make money online. I don't want to spend a lot of my life working spending time to get by. I'm 17 though but I do want to start early, any basic tips you have for me?

That's awesome Sofia! You're absolutely right about making money online. There are so many opportunities available to create income online and WA will teach you how to through affiliate marketing. The best tip I can give is to start Course 1 and work carefully through the step by step lessons making sure to follow through with the action tasks. If you have any questions at any stage then let me know.

Hi, I chose my niche as human resources. Now, I have no background working experience in that field, but my education geared toward that department. The only experience I have with human resources is in having dealt with them through jobs.

That said, my interest is in learning more about it and helping them because I feel they are or can be an asset to businesses.

So, my question is, how do I come up with a way to write up an About Me page? Thank you.

Hi! So nice to talk with you. I’m just beginning this journey. I hope to become good at all of this as it is all very new to me. I am a stay at home mom and I’m trying to generate some income for my family. As a stay at home mom I have a lot of spare time to work on my website. I have read a lot of success stories of people who only devote a few hours a week into their website. So I figure that if I am able to work on mine for a longer period of time than some people have I will be able to excel quickly.

Hi, I'm driving myself crazy...I found some statistics on here and have no clue where I found them. They had to do with participation, like answering questions and being friendly, that sort of thing. I think it has to do with being or becoming an ambassador. That would be nice to accomplish. Thank you.

Hi Theresa, you can find out more about the WA Ambassadorship here: Being an Ambassador is great. You don't get paid for it though. It can side-track new members who mainly joined WA to create an online business to generate income.

Does it get shipped to a store near them?

Hello Kevin,

I am studying architecture, and I was wondering if I could make my niche something about architecture, but I am not sure how to make money out of it, or what exactly could it be. I hope you will help me with that.

Hope you are having a good day, by the way

kevinmj Premium
Hi Naida,

Thank you for your message. I'm having a great day. Hope you are too.

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!
Reply
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
kevinmj Premium
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...

Cheers!

A little bit about me. Married, father of thee all under the age of five. Our youngest, Penny, is 5 months old and was born with Down Syndrome.

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 :)

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.

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.

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.

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.

Kevin

I found one place that states content relevant to B&H product offerings. I think I understand what they are saying but can you explain it to me in more detail.
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,

That's awesome Clifton. As mentioned before, you'll need to contact the affiliate program directly to find out about their offerings.

Yes you can build your site promoting canon/nikon cameras etc. The training will teach you how to write product reviews on these products.

Um, I am quite sure you already mailed this to me. Auto responses do not help at all - at least they are no help to me. I am Richelle, I am 52 years old, and GrandMother of four GrandAngels, but I already responded to this message the last time you sent (auto sent?) it. !Ciao!

Which auto response message are you referring to Richelle? There are auto response messages available to all members or you can create your own. It can help to speed up replying to general replies or send out general messages. This is me though replying right now, in real time lol. :)

Hi Kevin: Your message was very inspirational and eloquent -- I, too, love Jim Rohn and his teachings. I literally just began this journey with WA yesterday, uploaded a picture, sent in a profile, and set some goals. I am hungry for success, and, although I do like who I am, I am nonetheless looking forward to seeing who I become. The next thing is my niche and the first thing that comes to mind is something having to do with organization. Hmmm!. Thank you for your support and beautiful message

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.
I keep telling myself get one website up and going then work on the second then the third.

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

Yes that is the best way. It's always best to take your time to go through the lessons and build your website.

CliftonJr Premium
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?
Reply
kevinmj Premium
Yes sure you can. The orders go through the affiliate companies. You just need to promote their products and they take care of the payment transactions, shipping, delivery, customer queries etc. Just promote, promote, promote Clifton. ;)

I'm trying not to panic but...
Yesterday I changed my website theme and all was well. I went back today and nothing come up after I login with password. Do you have any idea what might be happening? I published before I left the site yesterday.
Any suggestions about what I can do to fix something if is an operator problem or is this a system problem?
Thanks,
Betty

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.
Reply
BHARRY Premium
Thanks. I will contact WA Site Support. It's strange because my website with the new theme is online when I enter my domain name in the browser.
Have a great day.

I am proud to say that I have published my site and one of my posts has been indexed by Google! I have a quick question though. I'm not sure if you would know anything about this, but since my site is based on arcade games, do you have any suggestion for affiliate programs? Thanks!
Reply
kevinmj Premium
That's awesome Bob! The best thing to do is to do a search on Google for "arcade games affiliate programs" to see what results come up. You can also search on Jaaxy for relevant affiliate programs.

Hello, Im Pedro Hernandez, Im pedropete on the first account I have with WA have my domains transferred to stierubix as petey@ns4.mywahosting.com, petey@nutriph.org and I was at 30% until my Google email address accounts like stickypeter33@gmail,com and stickybro123@gmail.com ext. no rank from Google nor Bing and Yahoo. I was hacked so Google stopped yahoo accounts FB apps to make matters worst. I got sick and my hand set was stolen,
My passwords usernames where saved in that phone I forgot to save the information to another device like my chromebook. I report it and close the account with my internet provider.Now Im waiting for the first week of next month to get another phone. What can I do with this previews account ? I open this new account with Google.So I can communicate with you cause It was nice working with you.

Hey Pedro, sorry to hear about your situation. It looks like your pedropete account here at WA is still live. That's the one you signed up with me. I think the Cafeitabaco account you signed up under Kyle. I believe you can only have 1 Premium account here at WA so you'll need to contact Kyle and explain the matter with him. He'll be able to get this sorted for you.

Hi Kevin
Can you please clear couple of my major doubts, as I am struggling to move on.
1. When I choose my Niche, and build a website on that, how am I expect to earn money. Does the money just comes from the traffic enter into my website?
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?
It would be kind of you to reply to my queries.

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.

can I ask you something I have created the website but I want to add my own products of ebooks but in one of the lesson google don't like too many images any advice would be much appreciated and how do we make a page of affiliate links of products that I want to promote
Reply
kevinmj Premium
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.

Hi Kevin, That's a very inspiring story for someone like me just starting out at WA. Working with Jim must have been very inspirational!

I'm not going to do anything with you guys until you guy's telling me what the matter. With Google messing with my passwords wish I will go to their office tomorrow. The same here I try to get my stuff to google to be ranked Iknow it takes time from one month to 3 I read it somewhere but the private police page is in la la land. You guys might say whatever go and is explained to a person that doesn't have the experience. I can work fair but unfair is I asked about getting my stuff with Google and both WA and Google are just totally messing my way to progress and that my friend remembers theirs a God looking watching what we do good or bad. Maybe a sticking like my mothers love fam NYC I'm tired of being treated unfairly.I will go to Google then legal

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

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!!

Hello Kevin,

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.

Here hoping for the best.
