About Kristian1974
Joined January 2014
I am a Lawyer by day and a Trainee Affiliate Marketer by night (and early hours of the morning!).

I have a tendency to "collect" hobbies and have 4 websites under development at the moment.

If this leads nowhere, I can just add it to my list of abandoned hobbies.

Hopefully, I can add it to my (relatively small) list of retained hobbies and make some money in the process.

Thanks for the reply Nathaniell.

Well, I finally asked a few questions in the live chat room tonight about domain name sites and why their prices are so different for the same name and was overwhelmed by the swift and helpful responses that I received. I hadn't realised that you had to pay for privacy and that many apparently cheap sites stung people later with hideous renewal fees.

Anyway, I have purchased my first ever domain name (from Namecheap) and have done a little keyword research using my free Jaaxy allowance. Thanks to your helpful video in relation to WA's keyword tool, i don't propose to upgrade to the full Jaaxy service. However, I am planning to sign up for the initial 1 month WA premium membership this weekend. My next task is to get my head around linking the domain name to WA hosting and get to grips with the web builder tool and using wordpress. Presumably there are some instructive videos in the members area of WA.

Hey, I just wanted to check in and see if had a chance to start exploring Wealthy Affiliate. I know that when I first joined WA I got serious information overload. I didn't really know where to get started or what exactly I was meant to be doing.

If you haven't started the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course - that's a good place to start. It'll take you through the whole process of what online marketing is, and how to build a successful website. Click the green"Get Started Here" button on the left.

If you're seriously lost or need help with ANYTHING, drop me a message on my profile or ask someone in chat :) Live chat is an awesome tool and there's usually someone that can solve your problem right away!

Hi Nathaniell,

I have finished your 5-day email course and am in the process of watching the 10 bonus videos provided in the day 5 link. I have learnt a great deal about online marketing already and I suspect I have only just scratched the surface. I am seriously considering signing-up for premium for a 1 month trial. it seems to me that the $20 is a small price to pay for the training videos alone. As someone who has "collected" a myriad of hobbies over the years (to the mild annoyance of my wife!), I have number of candidate niches ready to go and my main problem is going to be selecting the best one to start with. My wife is also interested in getting involved with her own niche areas.

The principal issue that I am still trying to get my head around is the domain name / hosting issue. I have no website development experience (though I have a little coding experience). I note from one of your videos that you purchased your domain name via godaddy and used another company (name escapes me at the moment) to host the site. I was somewhat confused by this since WA Premium offers a free-hosting service to members. Have you since transferred your domain names to WA hosting services? If not, is there any good reason why you continue to pay for an external site to host? You don't strike me as someone who would pay for a service if an equally good service could be obtained free of charge.

Finally, I have really enjoyed your no-BS style of presentation and my "scam-radar" is not currently sounding any alarm bells!

regards,
Kristian

Hey Kristian, those are good questions.

I still host some websites with WA, as well as host outside WA. This was a choice I made about a year into my business because I wanted some of the more advanced hosting features that Hostgator offers. The point when I switched I had already started making money from my sites and the yearly fee of a couple hundred buck was worth it to me.

For beginners, WA hosting is great. It means that if you mess something up WA support can help you, and they are used to newbie mistakes, as well as how WA is run. It'll save you money for at least your first year of operation, and later on down the road you can make the choice to stay here, or move. Actually, I see the hosting here improving on a regular basis, so you might not have to switch at all - I know lots of guys that don't.

It's good to hear that your wife is on board too. Lots of guys here complain that their wives make fun of them or give them time limits on how long they can keep their membership. LOL. If you guys work together on a site or each have a site and support each other, you will have a greater chance of success. Having a support network is vital to working through the frustrating confusing moments!

Maybe you can even have a friendly competition to see who can make the most money :)

Hi Kristian, Nathaniell here. Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

I'm glad to see you've signed up and are ready to get started.

Before you start making money, there are just two things you need to know.

1) Those who ask questions interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their goals. Watch this video here to learn how to maximize your community reach in WA https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/completing-your-account-set-up-at-wa-adding-a-description-image

More buddies means more support. More support means more success.

2) You can get started learning how to make money by doing your Level 1 Certification Course. Click on the green "Get Started Here" button. Remember that you can ask any questions you want in live chat, on your personal blog, or in the Getting Started Classroom here https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/getting-started

And don't forget that you can also access me for 1-on-1 support by leaving a message on my profile (https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/nathaniell) or by private message if you are a premium member.


★How To Access Your Exclusive Bonuses ★

I also wanted to let you know that if you join the premium membership in this 7 day window you'll get a TON of awesome stuff.

First off, you'll get a 59% discount ($19.95 for 1 month) on your membership. Twenty bucks for you first month of WA is an absolute steal. This is available to all members. But I've lined up some other things which are a bit more exclusive.


☆ Bonus #1: Live Case Study 3 Part Webinar Series

Get access to a 3-Part-Series Live Case Study webinar. It's video series where a professional internet marketer creates a complete 'niche website'. All steps are included and thoroughly explained. Total length of the videos is about 3 hours.

This will give you a broad overview of the type of site you will create on Wealthy Affiliate. I think it's always a good idea to know the direction you are headed before you start your journey.


☆ Bonus #2: Exclusive Look at The Top 5 Newbie Mistakes And How To Fix Them

Some questions get asked over and over again. It's very likely you have these same questions.

This is a two-part bonus. It includes an exclusive video not available to other WA members where I create a website EXACTLY how the training teaches you. Many new members don't follow the instructions properly and can't get their sites to work. Watch this video first, and you'll be up and running in 20 minutes with your own .com hosted here on WA.

I have also included 5 newbie website design and setup tips. These are super easy ways to turn your site from a basic Wordpress install into a streamlined canvas ready for action, and ready to impress your traffic.

This means you will be able to bypass these typical mistakes, get started faster, and on the right foot. This is an exciting time - you are building the foundations of a profitable online business, and I want to help you get started as quickly and smoothly as possible.
