I'm asking this question to find out what other members are struggling with the most in their online business! It could be making sales, recruiting affiliates, keyword research, understanding SEO in general, posting content, graphic design, advertising methods, understanding social media as a business tool, staying focused, and so on....
Maybe in an area that a member is having problems with, another member may have a solution! Let this question be a way to help "Pay-It-Forward" which is what WA is all about along with building our own business empire!
For me, it's trying to understand the keyword research for posts! I have an easier time understanding things in layman's terms, by following a step-by-step method, and I'm not ashamed to admit that! :) We all have strengths, and weaknesses! Let's help each other build up on our strengths, and help each other turn our weaknesses into strengths! So, getting back to the question - What is your biggest struggle at this point regarding your business? Remember there is nothing to be ashamed of if you struggle with something!

Great post Terry. for me I seem to always be all over the place. I am getting things done but it seems like there is no order to it. I need to focus more.

Ya, being able to focus is key! It's very easy to get off track! What might benefit you is finding someone who can hold you accountable to your online business! Check in every once in awhile to see how you're doing, and where you're at! Just an idea! :)

My greatest difficulty is writing unique posts and posting three times per week. As I've become more involved in the Twitter community with personal finance bloggers and a few other niches, I've realized that thousands of people are putting out the same content using different words. I'll bet that's the challenge a lot of new Wealthy Affiliates have if they're focused on promoting Wealthy Affiliate (I am not).

There's a ton of information on Wealthy Affiliate for what you want to do, Terry. Do you know what the problem is? It's not organized for YOU. Some of it is unbelievably good. Some of it is useless (to me). I've decided to do the same thing that other bloggers in my niche(s) do, with my own twist of course. I'd like to be further along so I started doing monthly progress/status reports that keep me accountable and focused. They'll probably be useful to others who are one step behind me or in front of me! ;)

That sounds like a good plan, and would probably benefit a lot of members here!! :)

Mine is to see the whole picture rather than just writing post after post. Also not really wanting to dive into the PPC thing because that's too pricey for me.

TheDummyOfWA Premium
That makes sense! You are trying to visualize your blog as a finished product? Am I correct, or not even close? lol

Close. I'm trying to figure out how it all fits together, like a puzzle I guess. I have 270 blog posts now. So, since it's a WA promotion site I am starting a new niche site that may be more interesting to me. I'll add to the existing WA site but want to branch out to a niche site and see how that is for me. If it's fun you know.
I don't want to focus solely on money, I want to see if the site is interesting and the WA site is so broad and so many do those. Maybe with a niche site the process will be easier.

Hey, great post and great idea! At the moment my main problem is to be able to build my course online. My webpage is about teaching European Portuguese so I am thinking of making my own material and posting it online.
However, I don't seem to be able to decide which plugin/method is the best to develop a course. I want to be able to share videos, e-books and all kind of different materials and also making them payable at a certain point (so students should not be able to access more advanced materials without paying). I am new to this so I have a lot of research to do.
Does anyone out there no anything about this? I already asked some members and obtained some answers, which is great, but the more the best! I am looking into LMS plugins, so any advice?

Thank you so much,
Mia

You can use a membership plugin on your website - I use MemberPress. You can also use platforms like Thinkific

Thank you for responding with the first comment! I believe that I have the perfect plugin you are looking for! I bought the developer license for it when I was homeschooling my kids a couple years back, and it works like a charm! I don't want any money for it, but just to be able to help you out is enough! I have to figure out how to send it to you, as it's on my hard drive with my millions of tools...lol..I don't know how to send it to you without someone screaming spam! Maybe Kyle or Carson might know! :)

I took a look at your www.learn-portuguese.org. Being new here I like to look at other sites as examples of how to do or not do. To me it looks great and would motivate me to learn Portuguese.How ever I didn't see any way you can earn money from this site.You didn't direct anyone to a link to purchase (for example a dictionary, DVDs, an online study and so forth.

Again I may be asking the wrong question. Not fully understanding all of this you may have asked that question above. Forgive my lack of knowledge.

Wow, that would be awesome! Maybe we can exchange email addresses? I also don't know how you can send me this! Does Kyle or Carson know about it? Please let me know if you have some idea :D
Also, could you then maybe help me understand how it works? I might have some doubts along the way....I am very "green" in this webpage building thing !
Thanks again a million times,
Mia.

Hey John, you are absolutely right that I still do not have anything that helps me make money. I still didnt get that far in the online course here at WA. However, I already have some ideas and one of them is to set up a course online. Hence, my question here ;)
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my website and to answer me. It means a lot...
It does not matter if you do not have a lot of experience, you are like me... it is always nice to try to help, nevertheless. And thats what you did!

Thanks again and I wish you lots of success!

Thank you. I know terryvandal asked the origianal question and appreciate the fact that she helped two people and maybe more.

That is why I think WA is a good place to be. I hope that in the near future I will be able help other members solve problems.

Good luck to you Mia, and Terry.....
