About Kimgwinter
Joined July 2017
Hello to all WA members,

My name is Kim and I'm from sunny South Africa. I live in a suburb very close to Durban.
I'm a wife and a mother of two grown up children. I've been working in a school finance office for the past 8 years, and my goal is to be able to resign in a year from now, and work from home, travel and enjoy life.

I'm learning a lot from the WA training and am really excited to get my business going. The WA community is great, with lots of very friendly, helpful people.

Take care and wishing everyone all the best in building your businesses.

Six months down the line.......

I am so proud of the progress I have made at Wealthy Affiliate. There is so much to learn and so much growing to do, I never imagined the things I have achieved to be possible. Wealthy Affiliate is an amazing platform of online business tutorials and tools, and an incredible community of people where the focus is designed around a pay it forward ethos. I am so incredibly happy to have found Wealthy Affiliate.

Good morning, Kim. I am so glad to make your aqaintance, another WA’er from South Africa. I am also from sunny South Africa, living east of Pretoria. I happened upon Wealthy Affiliate as I was searching for an alternative source of income and I am extremely glad I did. I am making slow, but good progress and I am planning to have completed the Basic Certification Course no later than August.

Thank you very much for following me back and I hope to interact more with you in the future.

Awesomeness!
Mojalefa.

Hello Mojalefa,
It's always so great to connect with fellow South Africans, thank you for making contact. There's so much to learn at WA and I'm also making slow progress. I wish I could spend more time on it but I also have a job, so that limits how long I can spend on it each day. I'm really enjoying my time here though and believe we will all make a success of it.

All the best to you!

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hy Kyle,

You're right, I have been struggling with a Niche, but have made big progress tonight. I've taken advantage of your Black Friday special and am now a premium member, and I've decided on my niche. That being clothing, shoes and jewelry selling primarily to begin with through Amazon. What do you think?
I will start building my website this weekend.

Regards,
Kim.

I would recommend that you narrow it down a bit, what aspect of "clothing", "shoes" or "jewelry" do you want to help people out 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. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

Hey Kim,

I forgot to mention the other day that I am going to still be offering you my awesome bonuses if you join within the next 4 days.

Here are the bonuses that you are going to be getting:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)
(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there. Where else can you access the CEO of the company for help?
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well Kim and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)

Here we are, 10 days into your experience at WA. :)

I hope things are going well Kim! I want to remind you of one thing, your hard work and dedication IS going to pay off. Keep working through the training, communicating within the community, and of course, ask for help when you need it.

Just heading out for a bit here, but do leave me a message if you need a hand with anything. You should have Premium communication back for an additional 7 days now, so hit me up when you get a chance Kim!

Hi Kim!

The internet is the greatest opportunity of our time. You can change your life and the future of those you love with an online business, but you must take action.

Your path to success begins with setting up your Wealthy Affiliate account.

When you set up your account with an image and a description it's like introducing yourself to the community.

Here's a video that shows you how to do it. If you have a question or need help, feel free to get in touch. You can reach me by simply replying to this message.

I'm here for you,

Hi Gary, thank you very much. Before I get started, I'd just like to understand what my costs are going to be going forward. So if I upgrade within the next 7 days I will pay $19 for the first month, and $49 every month thereafter? Will there be any other costs involved, and any other upgrades needed?
I noticed that in the intro that I've read so far, there is no mention of products to sell. Just for interest, what products do you sell online?

Warm regards,

Kim.

Hi, Kim!

It's a pleasure to meet you.

You understand correctly. If you upgrade within 7 days, you get the first month of membership for $19. After the first month, membership is $49/mth if you pay monthly. If you pay yearly, the cost averages about $29/mth. That is all it costs to be a member of Wealthy Affiliate. There are no upsells or hidden expenses. That's the whole enchilada.

If you don't already own a domain name for your website, you will need to get one. A top tier domain name will cost about $15/yr.

WA Premium Membership and a top tier domain is all you need to build a profitable online business.

The premium membership includes a powerful keyword tool. If you don't know what this is or why you need one, the training will explain it. The Wealthy Affiliate Keyword Tool does the job well, but I find the Jaaxy Keyword tool easier, faster and more fun to use. Jaaxy costs $19/mth.

Getting Jaaxy is completely optional. If money is an issue, stick with the Wealthy Affiliate Keyword Tool until your website is profitable.

The training will cover product selection and promotion in detail. Your question about products gives me the impression you might think Wealthy Affiliate has an inventory of products for its members to sell. As a member, you can sell WA membership, but we don't have an inventory of products.

Our core training is about building an online business about something you enjoy or are keenly interested in. We teach the industry's best practices and proven business principles. These can be applied to promote any product you want. The training will show you how to find products to promote.

You asked about the products I promote. I'm an affiliate for several companies including Amazon and ClickBank. I also promote Wealthy Affiliate and my own product. In addition to marketing online, I use what I learned in WA to promote local brick and mortar businesses.

Once you grasp the fundamentals of online marketing, you will realize there are opportunities everywhere and the earning potential is truly unlimited.

Kim, I look forward to helping you build a thriving online business.

I'm here for you,

Gary
