About Ktracey1
Joined November 2014
My name is Kathy and I'm very excited about becoming a member with Wealthy Affiliate! I've always wanted to have my own business, it's something I've always been passionate about. My story is probably very similar to many of you. Several years ago I tried to make this affiliate marketing business work but was unsuccessful. I tried everything invested over $10k dollars and with no real direction I failed. However, here I am again because I believe that having knowledge is power in any business. I came across Wealthy Affiliate because I was looking for reviews on one of the affiliate marketing sites I joined. Needless to say Kyle didn't give it very good reviews. I thought, "Oh know here I go again!" Then I thought, "I need help!" I had a good feeling about joining Wealthy Affiliate when I started receiving e-mails from Kyle giving me "free" helpful information on what steps to take to get started. I felt like this was someone who genuinely wanted to help and knew the pitfalls to avoid. I was let go from my position as an Internet Manager last week. I share this not because I'm looking for sympathy, the exact opposite. It was a blessing in disguise! knew I was not working in an environment that was right for me and most importantly I learned that I didn't have a "passion" for what I was doing. I just invested in the Premium Membership with Wealthy Affiliate and I'm excited to get started on what I feel is a gateway to something life changing!

Hello Kathy! You found me to follow and now ... tag...I'm following you back.

You have been working away at things for a bit now and it looks like you are on track for publishing your website, maybe sooner than you thought possible.

What an awesome opportunity for us, to have found Wealthy Affiliate and to be in a learning environment that naturally builds a website that can get ranked and can earn an income that we may need or want.

As I'm sure you have found, doing the lessons and related tasks does move things along. I'll check into your blogs now and I'm looking forward to what else you will creatively bubble to the surface.

You know what works well? Get a screen share tool, or Screen O matic. Some are free. I think I paid 15 a year for http://ScreenOmatic.com
But, what you learn. Take that information and explain it in a screen share like you are telling someone else about it. This helps you so much in memory and the ability to feel comfortable talking about it. You will want to learn this as you go along so you can share with other marketers! This brings you more traffic. Once you get good at explaing what it is you are showing, these screen shares can be uloaded to utube with you building your website for even more followers and traffic.
Just a suggestion. If anything I would record what you go over and do it as a memory tool. Title it and save it for when you forget this part later!

Hi Rick, that is some great advice and I will definitely look into Screen Omatic. I didn't know about this piece software. I will certainly give it a try. Thank you soooo much for the advice! Kathy :}

Hi Rick, thank you for checking in. :} I'm here. I was offline a couple days because I was in a lot of pain, a tooth was the cause, got it removed and back to working on my website. I'm not sure if anyone can really help me at this point, I watched all the tutorials on Word Press but had to learn how to navigate., I'm going back in there today to see if I can finish up and I will have some review and can move forward and start working on driving traffic. I welcome any suggestions and again, thank you for following up! Kathy :}

Hi Cathy,my story is similar to yours,I was involved in a company long long time ago and was spammed,and since 2012 I was looking for a true opportunity online with zero results and some money loss thankfully just a little.Only lately I found a review for another certain organisation I was looking and the guy that wrote the review was saying things I already knew,so that meant he was telling truth and I came here through his link full of rush ready to discover and I was really surprised with this place.Other than that I am entrepreneur since the age of 25 in the offline world and still am

Another important thing ... WA is the only place that does not promise quick BIG money.If you work you will have a chance to succeed.But WA offers critical information,Kyle's guidance is unparalleled to anything online plus the communication between us.

I wish you success.Hope did not take a lot of your time

Not at all in fact I like to hear about others journey and how they ended up on WA. I'm sorry things didn't work out for you before but you can already see the wealth of knowledge that has been provided here. I'm also amazed and thankful that Kyle and Carson have created such an unparalleled knowledge based site. I know the time it takes me to figure things out on my own, so I can't thank them enough for what they've created here. I thank you for your well wishes and I wish you success!! Thanks again! Kathy :}

Hi Susan,

Good to hear from you! I'm glad things are coming together for you and it sounds like some great opportunities. :) I've been spending a lot of time gaining a lot of knowledge. I wasn't familiar with WordPress so I took some time to watch a bunch of tutorials. Also learning more in depth about keyword reaearch. I might start out selking domain names but need to make sure I get ranking. I need to put things into action now. I like to make sure I have all my ducks in a row.:) Keep me posted , so glad things are coming together for you! :)
Reply
SusanRocks Premium
If you start out selling domain names, you should pick one domain and use it as your main domain, whatever you do on the side should be a subdomain of that domain. This means that you will have more traffic to your main domain than if you have multiple main domains. Does that make sense? If you're gonna build traffic, let's build some TRAFFIC!!!

Things are getting kind of crazy here LOL

Hi Susan, thanks for the tip and it makes sense.. I don't know that I want to start off that way right away. After considering I might be better off just sticking to getting a website up and go from there. What do you suggest? I know you're busy, no rush. Hope things are going well. :}

Hi Bonnie, So far so good. I'm working on my website content. I had started with the Get Started here section but decided to promote Wealthy Affiliate to start so I'm in the Affiliate Bootcamp. I hope things are going well for you? I know it can be a little overwhelming in the beginning there's a lot to learn but I know it will payoff. Let me know how you're making out, I'm no expert but if I can help with anything let me know? :} Happy Holidays!

Kathy, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Kathy.

ktracey1 Premium
Thank you Kyle! I appreciate it. I have my 3 categories and topics(just need to enter the pages next) The one area that I tend to get stuck on is not the Keyword search itself.( I understand how to look up commonly searched keywords on Google and applying the Alphabet technique you recommend, love that tip btw ) I understand the categories/Page and Themes. It's the competition factor with the keywords.. Should I just keep going and worry about this later as I continue to test my website? Any help is appreciated, thank you!
Reply
Kyle Premium
Keywords are the premise of all of your content. Ideally you will be finding keywords with a lower competition (also known as QSR) because it means that you are going to be competition with less websites in Google when you go to create your content.

I recently created training on how to come up with great keywords here and this is a strategy I have always used to build out my website Kathy ...

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/hot-to-get-keywords-ranked-with-low-hanging-fruit

Once you have your keyword, you are going to create a page or a post on your website targeting that keyword. It should be within the following places in your content:

(1) Somewhere in the page/post title
(2) Somewhere within the first paragraph

And then write your content naturally and make sure it is engaging. People search "keywords" when they are looking for something so as you start getting ranked under these keywords, you are going to start to see traffic.

Once you have traffic...you have a ton of opportunity to generate revenue.

Hope this helps you out Kathy!

Sorry for my delayed response.:{ Thanks for the follow. No I didn't lose that money here, I was signing up for different websites, you know promising I'd make $500 in a week. I guess I was a little more gullible then. I have to admit I gave up out of frustration. I learned a lot and recognize how much there is to learn before you can actually be successful. I don't expect to become wealthy overnight it's unrealistic and I want to help others avoid those traps. You do have to put in the time but I can tell you that they've laid out everything. It's a lot if you're new to affiliate marketing but it will all start to make sense if you hang in there. If I can help in any way let me know? Kathy

I see we have something in common... I was fired from my last job too. I was a sales manager for a timeshare company. It was a decent job, but I got very stressed out. It got to a point where I dreaded going to work. I was relieved when they fired me. I was always told to keep going back until they tell you not to go back anymore.... so I did.

The internet can't tell me that! LOL

Hi Susan, glad all is well! Things are going well on my end too. Been spending a lot of time in the getting started section. Speaking of computers, I don't know why but my something must be wrong with my sound card? I downloaded all the suggested sites like Firefox, etc. Then I did the whole troubleshooting and it says it's working fine? So I restored it back to yesterdays date and it worked. However, the next day I turn on my computer it doesn't work again? I'm sure I'll figure it out eventually but if you have any ideas, I would greatly appreciate them. :} Have a great evening! Kathy

Well Kathy, you're a little over a couple of weeks into your free membership and I wanted to check-in one last time before communication within the WA community is gone for good unless you become a premium member (that happens on day 17) so if you have any lingering questions or something that I can help with, now would be the time to ask! If you have any questions just let me know and I'll do everything I can to help.

Hey Kathy, when you first joined Wealthy Affiliate through me I mentioned a bonus if you upgrade to premium within the first seven days. I just wanted to let you know that I'm now giving that bonus to all members regardless of what day they upgrade, so if you decide to take the leap and get really serious about your internet business and working through the lessons here at WA, I'll make sure to send it your way as soon as you upgrade. I hope everything is going well! As always, let me know if you need anything.

Hey Kathy, I was just scrolling over a few things in my dashboard and saw that you signed up a few days ago but haven't completed your profile yet. Is there anything I can help you with? I hope you've at least enjoyed a little bit of the content and community that's come together here!


If you get a couple of minutes, completing your profile will help you get A LOT more out of Wealthy Affiliate. People are much more likely to interact and engage with you if they can feel that personal connection, so just keep that in mind if you plan on pursuing affiliate marketing and engaging with this community!


Also, here's a free lesson I put together on the 5 Rules for Succeeding in Affiliate Marketing: http://youtu.be/p3iYfoy4SOQ


That will take less than 5 minutes to watch, and should be VERY helpful as you continue pursuing affiliate marketing.


Best of luck to you and, again, let me know if I can answer any questions you have!

Hey Kathy! I wanted to start you off with a quick note that could SIGNIFICANTLY impact your success with Wealthy Affiliate. Read this entire message if you are serious about being successful in internet marketing (it's lengthy, but I'm not joking when I say that this advice could make or break your entire internet marketing career):


1) You'll need to work consistently and hard. There's going to be a lot to learn in the beginning and you may feel overwhelmed at a point, but keep pressing forward and you'll make it through. It happened to me and every other successful internet marketer at some point, and the only way to become successful in this industry is to push past that overload whenever you get there.


Do yourself a favor and commit to a number of hours that you can work each week right now. It doesn't have to be massive, but it should be more than 10 between evenings and weekends at least. Just remember the more you work each week, the faster you'll learn and draw closer to success.


After you've picked the number of hours you can work each week, commit to working that much for AT LEAST six months - a year would be better. You won't see results immediately in this industry, and being consistent is the key. Pick a number of hours you can work each week, then work those hours for at least six months. It's something you've probably never done in this industry, and this advice alone will make a HUGE difference in your chances at succeeding with internet marketing as long as you take it seriously and STICK WITH IT.


2) I recommend starting off with this training (which you can access with your free account): https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1


It just scratches the surface of the MASSIVE amount of helpful content in WA, but you'll get a good "feel" for the teaching style here and begin to see the power of all of the great things they're teaching here at Wealthy Affiliate.


3) DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE COMMUNITY. Two of the best places you can go to for help when you get stuck are the "Live Chat" and the "Classrooms" sections located on the panel to your left. You'll find direction and inspiration through the community here, which is one of the reasons I recommend WA so highly.


4) Finally, you don't ever have to upgrade to the premium account here at Wealthy Affiliate if you don't want to. You'll have limited access using your free account for as long as you wish. HOWEVER, if you're serious about internet and affiliate marketing then you should invest in the premium membership for AT LEAST one month. You could look back on it years from now and see it as a pivotal moment in your internet marketing career, but you never will if you don't at least give it a try.


Check it out for a few days though - you don't need to upgrade right now. Make sure it's a good fit for you, and if you upgrade within the first 7 days you'll receive your first month's membership at more than 50% off. I keep my membership active and recurring every month so I can be here for the people I refer like you, so realize that I'm putting my money where my mouth is here!


On top of that, if you upgrade to a premium membership at the discounted rate within the first 7 days I have a special bonus EXCLUSIVE to people that join WA through me and upgrade within the first week of creating their free account. This bonus will show you how to be twice as successful with WA or any other legitimate internet marketing program out there and gives you some very valuable video lessons (which I recorded for you personally, of course) to ensure you get off to the right step in your internet marketing business.


I keep a close watch on the list of people that upgrade from starter to premium, so I'll send the bonus your way within 24 hours. If you upgrade and don't receive it within that time frame for some reason, just post on my WA profile and let me know!


I don't offer that bonus so you'll spring for the membership and make me more money, I offer the bonus just in case you needed that tiny "push" to make sure you invest in this training because I know that you will use for the rest of your IM career and it could change your life. I've referred hundreds of people now and I have NEVER had anyone tell me they were dissatisfied.


Best of luck to you! You're about to embark on a journey that could change your life forever, so make sure you take it seriously, put in the time and effort, and expect great things in return!


You know where to find me,
Ian Pribyl
