I guess this is where I tell everyone what I like to do...maybe even give some insight into the life of "Kyle". I enjoy travelling the world when I can and fortunately owning an internet business is very accommodating to travel (but it also means that I am always connected lol).

I also like to exercise, play sports (mostly basketball), and of course, Internet Business!

I also like to read in my spare time. Knowledge is a powerful thing. If you educate yourself in things that you are passionate about and that you can "apply" towards your journey to success, you can achieve big things!

I began marketing in college, where I began my journey onto the Internet. I took computer science in school, primarily focusing on programming, but quickly found a love for the business & marketing components of the web. Business has always been an interest of mine. I remember reading jargon-filled business magazines while I was still in high school.

Since the inception of Wealthy Affiliate in Sept, 2005, I have a new found passion -- helping others succeed online. This is not an easiest of tasks, and everyone coming to WA comes from a different background, with a different story, but my (and Carson's) goal is to continue to work towards creating a system that will induce widespread success among the WA community members.

Give me a shout out in the forum and if you want, add me to your buddy list, or send me a message below!

Take Care,

Kyle

PS. I truly look forward to working with you!!

Hi Kyle, can you tell me why my new referrals aren't receiving the automated messages?

I just checked the latest referral that actually filled out their profile and they received my first message, but I checked about seven other new members that had signed up prior to that one and none of them have received any of the auto drip messages.

I'm concerned about this because I updated my email system and it correlates with these messages. So people aren't getting these messages in a timely fashion, it messes up my entire funnel.

The other question that comes to my mind is that if the auto drip messages aren't accurate, what are the things are not accurate here at wealthy affiliate.

For example, I've noticed my starter to premium membership conversions have gone way down. I used to get 10% to 15% of them to buy, now it's less than 3%. As a matter of fact, from April 30th to May 15th, I had around 98 sign ups and not one single sale. So I'm barely able to get a 2% conversion and I'm wondering if I'm getting credited accurately.

Please advise.

Why are my referrals not receiving the auto drip message? Hi Kyle, I sent you this message the other day but I've noticed hardly any of my referrals are getting my message. The latest accepted invite that filled out their profile got my auto message. But everyone behind her that i tested (like 7 of them) haven't gotten them and they're from yesterday.

It's important to me that they get these messages in a timely fashion. I've improved on my email system and it correlates with theses messages. So by not getting them, I'll letting new leads slip through my hands.

I'm also concerned that if this part of the program isn't accurate, maybe other areas aren't accurate. It's amazing that in the last year my Starter to Premium memberships have gone down from 10 - 15 percent conversion to now less than 3%.

As a matter of fact, besides my recent sales, from April 30 to May 15th I had 98 invites before someone bought. So that's getting close to a 2% conversions.

Please advise?

Hi Kyle, just a heads up about a potential issue. I just noticed that my welcome messages haven't been going out to my new referrals.

When the new messaging system came out I thought I'd just leave my old message for now until I had time to plan out a full campaign. My premium upgrades have fallen off the map though so I was visiting a few of my referral's profiles and they haven't been getting my welcome message.

I manually added a message for my recent referrals but I wanted to let you know in case other people are having this same problem. Thanks,

Jay

Hey Kyle I received an Email today from you, sender was team@wealthyaffiliates.com, saying that my account will be suspended in three days because there was a problem with my payment. Then it said I should contact someone called Shade on Skype, or reply to wealthyaffiliate@gmail.com...

It looked 100% like spam, also some of the buttons were not working in the signature and it had a weird Skype logo, as well.

However, after I put the Email in the spam folder, I got a pop-up message here on wealthyaffiliate.com saying you noticed I marked one of your emails as spam.

So I can see three scenarios right now:

1) It wasn't spam and you'll suspend my account? If so, please let me know what I need to do because payment definitely went through I already confirmed with the credit card company.

2) It was spam and they are just super good at creating phishing emails that I'm even doubting myself.

3) Your Email account was hacked and it sent out this phishing message to random members on WA.

Hope to hear back from you. Thanks!

Hi Kyle,

I left a message for you here earlier about an email I received threatening to close my account in three days. I really need a response and explanation.

I'm feeling a rejection, was busy with my next article, looking forward to this month's SAC goals.

Please let me know what is happening.

Hello Kyle,

I have a few questions.
1. Do I already have to have a business to use WA?
2. If I already have a business can it be used via WA?
3. I have not been able to get far through WA due to an emergency over the past couple of days (Mom in Hospital), if I go premium and decide this is not for me. Can my membership be cancelled? This is not my plan but want to know my options.
4. If I prefer to speak to a person at WA by phone, how do I find a support phone number?

I hope to grow and change as I get older and I want to be successful, any tips that you can point me in the right direction would be awesome, I would like to ask you to be my mentor as to what to do, and learn how you did it. It is amazing that you find the time to help other people out. I need this to work as to fail right now at this is not a option to me. I have a family to raise and provide for. I need this to work.

Hi Kyle,

I just received a message that's supposed to be from you. It's like you're responding to a query sent by me. I didn't send a complaint about my account. I would like to know if you experiencing any problems. I have received a notice from WordPress few weeks ago of some who was trying to register as as user with very funny name and password.

I now see that I don't see my private messages from you.

Please advise.

Thank you,

Kyle I have a website theme that I can write about. But my products I wish to affiliate will be a number of accessories. Can I niche a particular keywords for one particular product on my website then set the SEO campaign to that product. Then next campaign niche products to another accessory. I have a story to build into the webpage that will hopefully create interest but I have number of niches products for the same

Is this too far reaching ? Should I scrap or carry on with my theme

Hi Kyle - New user here just trying to find my way around. I have a question - As a Premium member, am I automatically set-up as a Wealthy Affiliate affiliate? If so, where do I find the links and web assets to promote the program. In the intro video it was these, but I can't seem to find it now. I did a search under the "Affiliate Programs" menu and it is having me re-enter my email even though I know I am already a member.

Good morning Kyle.

I could use my MacBook searching
and access to every website on 'Google Search' with no problem. BUT I'M STILL NOT BE ABLE TO SEARCH FOR OR ACCESS TO WEALTHY AFFILIATE WEBSITE. Even the links on my email that you sent it to me was not working either. When I clicked on the link (that suppose to take me to WA site), it said "This site can't be reached unexpected closed the connection. ERR_CONNECTION_CLOSED"

It's very FRUSTRATED that I can search for everything on Google BUT NOT WA. Can you help me please? Any suggestions?

PS: I used my cellphone to access to WA with no problem.

Thank you.

Hi Kyle, 2 days ago you suggested my lead that could not re register, tried to reset the password. Apparently she can't she wrote....."I can't get any further as the system says that my email address is already registered too and it's the only email address I have"......................................... Can You contact her directly "Gillian.cheevers88 googlemail"
If she manages to re establish a previous log in then someone else will get the affiliate commission. Alternatively you could cancel the old account & let her register again as a new account.
Up to you Cheers Paul

Hi Kyle!
Now I have been around the net for a week to see which companies can help me best with the affiliate.

Have now decided that you are the ones who feel right to me and my needs.
I have now become a premium customer and have also looked at the advantages that it means to be able to work with this
in my business.

I have a question for you! because i am so happy with you and your product, i have in my surroundings like-minded person in my surroundings who i think would be interested in your product.

You said in the video that you would find a product that you have great interest in or are passionate about with your heart. I have this with your product ...

Why do I wonder if you can sell your product through affiliate programs and get commission?

Congrats on going Premium Johnnie, I know you are absolutely going to love it. In the coming days, weeks and months ahead you are really going to see your business start taking shape. I can't wait to see it unfold.

You have everything you need here at WA now, take action, work hard, stay persistent and ask for help if you ever feel even remotely stuck. Lots of help here!

If you are interested in promoting WA, I highly suggest you work through the Affiliate Bootcamp. This is training that I created and put a lot of thought and energy into. It is very interactive and if you work your way through all of the phases I can assure you that you will have a business in place.

You can get all of your affiliate links from the WA Affiliate Program page Johnnie:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/share

Here you will get everything from your stats, the program details and commission structure, your affiliate links, create your custom messages, get banners, and some other awesome features.

Please help me solve my problem and develop some etiquette in the support staff who attended to me today. I am doing a copy paste of this message to Kyle and Carson too.

Sorry to say this Nathaniell, but I was having some issues with my website today and I asked the support staff for the website for help.

They were just giving me vague answers and were not helpful at all. After a few messages I was told that they don't support my particular problem and to contact someone elsewhere on the WA platform.

I am absolutely disgusted, fuming and confused and have no idea how to solve this problem.

Here's my problem:

1) I need to go into the "Home" page and edit what's on there and I can't figure out how to enter this page.

2) On the "About Ranji" page, as per following the training lesson, I had saved it as a Post. I need to now save it as a Page and then edit it.

3) On the dashboard of WP, when I click "Pages", it's only the Privacy Policy that shows up as a Page.
Reply
Kyle Premium
That is because SiteSupport is hosting, support. They are not wordpress or website support in terms of your design. They are server architects, so that is why you got vague answers because their speciality is hosting. If you have questions like this in the future, these are best geared for the community.

1) I need to go into the "Home" page and edit what's on there and I can't figure out how to enter this page.

I would always suggest making your homepage a blog roll versus being a static page. The reason for this is that when you add a new post to your website, it will automatically show a snippet of this on your homepage (within your blog roll).

Not only does this make your website appear to be much more active and interesting to a visitor, it will also lead Google to quicker index your pages and also rank your content higher as your website will always appear fresh.

2) On the "About Ranji" page, as per following the training lesson, I had saved it as a Post. I need to now save it as a Page and then edit it.

You will need to delete it, if you want it as a page. Copy the content over to a Page, publish it, then delete your existing post.

3) On the dashboard of WP, when I click "Pages", it's only the Privacy Policy that shows up as a Page.

Yes, that is because that is your only page. If you click Posts, your other pages will show up within there.

Everybody earns money at a different rate, so it really depends on the person. I have actually created a discussion on this that will put things into perspective for you here: Have a read of that, I know it will give you a lot of insight into this exact topic. ;)

The first month is typically your foundation building stage. In order to build a website that earns you consistent revenue, you need this foundation. After this, you are going to start seeing traffic and as you build this out, there are many different ways in which you can generate revenue.

Personally it took me into my 3rd month of busting my butt to make my first dollar online, by month 6 though I was making consistent income and by the year mark, I was almost full time.

But guess what would have happened if I quit during those first two "trying" months. I would not be where I am at today. Just wanted to put things into perspective for you.

I am in this journey with you, so is the community here at WA. If you want to jump in, work hard, take action, and persist. Amazing things can and will happen!

I was once "green" to all of this Internet stuff, as with anything new you are going to be green to it when starting out. No different than riding a bike or learning how to talk, you once didn't have this knowledge but you acquired it by doing and by being taught by others that know how to do it.

The same goes with WA. You can learn this and we will teach you everything you need to know and offer you all the support you need.

Have a read of this post, it is going to be relevant. :) You are going to be just fine, it is not going to be long at all before you are very proficient with this Internet business stuff!

Good morning. I'm having difficulty with the video sound on this level. Was excited last night and moved my site to my new domain on my own without finishing the video and wonder now if I didn't pick the wrong option when moving to new or existing domain. Because, my site moved but the site name isn't attached to the new domain when I go to it in site mngr. Is that how it's suppose to be? I hope that I'm explaining that where you get what I'm talking about...lol. It seems to be working fine but I'm scared to move on and it just get me further off track.

I asked tech support this question and if they could fix the sound issue because it seems to be with all level two videos and they just replied that the site was moved and is working properly.

I'm very excited being a part of this program. I
have been looking at others and they only want more and more money before ever getting started and I had a bad experience with one and was about to give up when I found this and so far I DO NOT regret a thing and think I'm right where I need to be.

In other words HELP! I can't wait to move forward with my lessons!

When you move a website, you move all of your old content and entire website from ONE domain to another. If your new domain is different, you will likely update the title of your website to reflect this after the fact.

Where are you feeling stuck here? What is your new website, and what was your old domain.

Your old domain will redirect to your new website which is what you want here.
Reply
TinaCoulter Premium
Looks like it moved properly but for instance I named my domain "http://thesmilingmom.com" and my site "healthybabyhappybaby" so when it moved to the domain shouldn't it read http://healthybabyhappybaby.thesmilingmom.com for the site now? I think I'm asking that right...lol.
Also. can something be done about the video sound? Your words skip and stutter so bad I can't watch the video.
Reply
Kyle Premium
No, it shouldn't. That subdomain is no longer there, you don't want a subdomain, your website was transferred to the root of your new domain.

This is exactly what you want, and it is correct. ;)

Thanks and i'm working on trying to get Google Chrome as my browser so I can watch the videos. I think they are important to see with the extra tips and guidance that are extra vs just reading through the text. Hopefully I can figure out the problem.
Realistically, I think it would've been an issue through the previous lessons if that is the problem though. I'll update you about the video sound if changing to chrome doesn't fix the issue.

Hi, Kyle, and Carson,

I have watched many changes happen since I started here as a Free Member back in November 2016.

I actually never thought for one second that the W.A. platform and the New UX could actually get any better. As it has always being amazing.

(I was chosen as a beta tester for the New UX and that was a real honour)

Then all of a sudden POW you role out another new design. One second it was there and the next it popped out. 🤗

I am loving the Affiliate Programmes. I feel like a little kid in a sweetshop.

If I had any lulls in writing content or thinking of what to write next. I have now enough to last me a lifetime lol. My brain is ticking over like crazy.

I am so excited I feel like that little Duracell bunny lol on super charge.

Honestly I already thought this platform was amazing but this new roll out and the email notifications we have that we can customize are awesome too it is just absolutely brilliant.

The ideas you give us too like all the emails here in W.A. I would have to wrack my brain to write them out but you saved us all so much time with the templates.

The absolute brilliance of it all is so amazing.

I can't believe I have all this for less than a cup of coffee a day. Damn I still have to nip myself lol.

Thank you both of you so so much. I really am just so excited I want to try it all out now.

This is so awesome and I know many will write posts on this but I just wanted to pass by to you and Carson and say thank you.

You have changed my life immensely thank you. Now I am off to explore and burn up some of my batteries lol

Yes, you can create Amazon Associates account for all of the various Amazon's. You can promote them, and it depends on the program, but yes they will likely be able to pay you in your currency.

Hey Kyle, My Bing UET tags have not been tracing conversions for about 4 days now. When I try to edit the tag here inside of WA it is not saving it but keeps reverting back to the old tag. This is the tag I am trying to use.

[removed](function(w,d,t,r,u){var f,n,i;w[u]=w[u]||[],f=function(){var o={ti:"5435356"};o.q=w[u],w[u]=new UET(o),w[u].push("pageLoad")},n=d.createElement(t),n.src=r,n.async=1,n.onload=n.onreadystatechange=function(){var s=this.readyState;s&&s!=="loaded"&&s!=="complete"||(f(),n.onload=n.onreadystatechange=null)},i=d.getElementsByTagName(t)[0],i[removed].insertBefore(n,i)})(window,document,"script","//bat.bing.com/bat.js","uetq");[removed]

But it keeps reverting back to this one below.

[removed](function(w,d,t,r,u){var f,n,i;w[u]=w[u]||[],f=function(){var o={ti:"5435356"};o.q=w[u],w[u]=new UET(o),w[u].push("pageLoad")},n=d.createElement(t),n.src=r,n.async=1,n.onload=n.onreadystatechange=function(){var s=this.readyState;s&&s!=="loaded"&&s!=="complete"||(f(),n.onload=n.onreadystatechange=null)},i=d.getElementsByTagName(t)[0],i[removed].insertBefore(n,i)})(window,document,"script","//bat.bing.com/bat.js","uetq");[removed]<noscript><img src="http://bat.bing.com/action/0?ti=5435356&Ver=2" height="0" width="0" style="display:none; visibility: hidden;" /></noscript>

Hi Kyle,
I just wanted to say hello. I registered with WA a few days ago and I must say I'm impressed with the training and looking forward to developing my online marketing skills via your platform.

I confess to being a little sceptical before I registered since I had been looking at List Launch PRO (LLP) prior to discovering WA. LLP was very much a hard sell with no money back guarantee and so your 7 day trial period before commiting to Premium is a refreshing change.

I'm working through the initial training and from what I've experienced so far I shall be upgrading to Premium before my 7 day period has expired.

I'm something of a dinosaur since I've been in sales for nearly 40 years and run my own conventional business. However, I believe I still have enough brain cells to learn some new tricks...

Keep up the good work.

Cheers,

Kevin

Hello, I need to ask you a question about the WA keyword tool. When it shows the number of monthly searches it means for Google or Bing or together?
I noticed that my posts almost always rank on the first page on Bing but not on Google and I thought of doing keyword research only to rank on Bing. But maybe the search volume is very low on Bing for5 a specific keyword, but is there a way to know this?
Reply
Kyle Premium
That is combined. That is the estimated amount of traffic that you will get if you get ranked under that. Keep in mind that Google gets 90% of the search traffic.

hey Kyle I just finished your video on the "About me" and "Privacy Policy" post and page respectively. I found my "About Me" post almost immediately after visiting my site but can not find my privacy policy page at all, even though it tells me that I have published it in my "websites" page on WA

Yeah, no worries. You can add these custom menus to organize your top menu in any way in which you like, as well as create sub-menus (for themes that will support this). You can also use these custom menus to add within your side widgets on your website (within your sidebar).

Here is a tutorial on how to create custom menus: I use custom menus on all of my websites (over-ride that default menu). It allows much more control and organization....both good things!

Hi Kyle,

Gidday from NZ.

Just touching base on behalf of my aunt, Lisa Brack who has lost her write access again.

Some crap over a screen shot which I made for her blog. No biggie but somebody took exception, so she's fixed that.

I helped her because she was writing her content on her phone at the airport and it wouldn't handle the screenshots.

I'd been checking this dude Waldmann out because he's given her a lot of crap. the shot I made was ok, it didn't identify him and I didn't think it was a big deal. It's just a screenshot. This is a load of crap from someone who maybe likes a lot of attention.

Anyways, can you get the write access thing sorted so we can all just move on?

Thanks.

PS: Nice platform you've got here. I'm with samcart, have you checked them out, they are tied in with Kijabi and Brian Moran and they are looking good - but you beat them hands down on price.

Cheers and thanks again.

Yes, that is sorted Julien. And no, never heard of that platform. WA is 14 years ahead of the industry, what you see here has been an evolution since 2005.

I know you are going to love your experience here at WA and I look forward to working with you!

Just wanted you to know that I found a typo in your niche training section below the icons showing your interests.

Sorry to be a nuisance again. Can you deal with Waldmann please he is on the thread of my latest blog and you have asked me to stay away and I have, but he is now being a nuisance.

I'm getting really tired of this. There is no reference to him anywhere in my post.

He also hasn't removed his 'objectionabe/personalised' reference to me in his blog on hypocrites and spam which I would also like dealt with.

All he has to do is stay away from me and my content. If he can't do that then you should remove him completely.

Thank you.

Good Morning Kyle,

I have complete Level 1 of the training and want to start posting content as I am not yet able to get a premium account. So, seeing that I am unable to add images to my site content do you think that will in anyway make my content less viable?

You can add images directly within the back office of your website.

You will be able to find your websites within the Websites menu under "SiteManager".

I would like to make use of the beauty of the white island to promote a few products/activities and on the other site promote the island itself. if that makes sence. I have a few ideas about the concept of my future business and i would like to share them with you . saludos

Kyle Premium
That is the case for lots of folks, and was for me when I started out too. You just need to choose a starting point for your business and recognize that down the road you are going to be able to be involved in many different niches.

A niche can honestly be anything, what are you passionate about? What are you interested in?

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, Kyle so I upgraded my membership. I have been for the past several hours really been working on working on a niche so I can get assistance with setting up my website. I am a Christian and love empowering people with Biblical principals so the niche I have in mind is promoting Christian books, training, devotions, that pretty much teach on Godly principals or how to overcome issues such as fear etc. Also in doing my research, I found some Christian Affiliate programs such as those selling Christian items can I have them as links on the website alongside the promotion of the devotions etc.

You could give them access to your website back office (give them the login details) or if they need FTP information, you can give them that as well.

You can host any wordpress based websites here at WA. :)
Reply

Thanks for the advise,I dont know what exactly is the FTP information.
Reply
Kyle Premium
To access the FTP for your website you will want to go to your SiteManager page. You can access this under the SiteRubix menu, under "SiteManager".

Here is the direct link:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites

Once you are on that page, you will want to click the "Details" button for the given site you want the FTP information for (see screenshot).

Upon doing this, it will take you to the details page that provides you with all of your website details, including your FTP details (see screenshot attached).

I hope this helps you out here.

Hi Kyle - I’ve viewed your video on Jaaxy; very informative.

You can use SiteRank for this, it will help you assess you the first page of the SERPS. This is an intensive application though if you want full results, so you should consider another level of Jaaxy if you want more sophisticated results.

Enterprise is typically $99/mth for folks outside of WA.

Not every page or post you write will rank and definitely with a new website, not everything will get indexed and rank right away.

Typically around the 3 month mark is when you will start to experience a big breakthrough in terms of search engine penetration Nathaniel. Posts that you have done up to that point will start to rank, move up the search results, and you will start to strike the 1st page of Google with lots of your content.

Don't panic here and don't fixate too much on rankings at this point in the game, they will happen. :)

Hi Kyle,
How are you?

There is one thing that I need your advice.

1) I found a niche which is kids activities gears review, like kids martial arts gear, scuba diving gear, horse riding gear, running gear, etc..

Do you think this can be a good niche?

2) I am looking for the domain name for the niche website. Gears for energetic kids.com and energetic and active mom.com both are available.

Cause I am personally a certificated advanced fitness instructor / certificated kids gymnastics and physical instructor. Also, I am doing BJJ, Thai boxing, yoga, surfing, scuba diving, wake surfing as my habits.

Do you think I should focus on ”gears for energetic kids.com” or can use ”energetic and active mom.com” ?

Also my actual name zialiu.com is also available.

In your experience, which one would be better for the target niche?

Thanks so much!

Gears for energetic kids doesn't make grammatical sense (it would be "gear"), but this is most definitely a direction that you could head here.

You can mark your content as published manually within SiteContent and this is very easy to do.

You simply want to click the "Settings" icon when you are within the actual editor for the content you want to mark as published, and under that you will see "Mark as Published" within the drop down list.

Click that, and you will be able to set content as published.

Hello Kyle,
when I paid for my membership I used a friends debit card, I woke up this morning and he called to tell me he has been debited $49. I immediately thought it would be for my membership.
1. I want the payment to be reversed. 2. I want to remove his card details and link mine to it.
3. I thought I would be notified before the payment is renewed to know if I approve of it or not, which is more of an appropriate thing to do.
Please I need urgent answers and want this issue to be attended to, cos the friend is really pissed with me right now for using his card to make payments without his knowledge

Hi Kyle :} Just hit level 3.

Many thanks,

There are in essence the same thing, a post and a page are the same thing, the only difference is that a post snippet is added to your blog roll after you create it.

Pages typically go to your menu by default, but you can override that with custom menus (which can include pages and posts).

I typically create my initial framework of my website (first 5-10) as pages, then after that I create only posts. Posts are beneficial for rankings because they do go to your blog roll which makes your website look current to Google (good for SEO) as well as your audience.

Hope this helps.

Hi Kyle, good to meet you. I'm trying to determine what autoresponder to go with Kyle. I have heard Sendlane is really good and getting better all the time, but I like the free aspect of Mailerlite and it has all the bells and whistles that even the name brand, popular autoresponders like Aweber and Get Response don't even have. I've just heard everybody really likes Get Response and that it's interface is really intuitive and easy to use and it has a free course that comes with it that is very high level for email marketing, so my cognitive dissonance about this is kinda surprising to me....almost as surprising as you personally responding to me. My intention is to use this join Secret Affiliate Machine, so maybe I will just use Mailerlite since it's so cheap. I need something permanent though. I've had Aweber in a previous life though...you know what I mean, and I do know they are known for their high delivery rate. I'm sure I'm making too much of this, it's just got my mind going cause I need to get something in place anyway.

Sorry, to bother you Kyle. I was able to find a theme and install it. Site support gave me the one with the pot and leaves, not my kind of pot or leaves. It did give me the chance to work from there however. I would like to delete the themes I am not using. Site support deleted some of them. Sorry my payment was a few hours late. Didn't go to bed 1:15 PM working on my site. Work up a few hours ago. I guess there are times when my communication skills are very lacking, and site support is unable to understand me. One more thing Kyle, I have this meditation article that was published May 06/19 but still waiting to be indexed. I am not a rich man but was able to come up with the 74.20 as I always have for the past 7 months. Straight up Kyle I am so frustrated and tired with WA. I love the people and I love the platform.

If you have issues with your website technically, often times they will need to add a different theme as LOTS of the themes out there have technical issues within them that can bring down your website, or even a server. They are the root of the problem lots of the time.

Hello Kyle. Have to put Site on hold. Ran out off money .No money for domain name, and to promote site.
A niche will lead to needing a domain name that would lead to having to promote. I only get paid once a month.
My son(19) and his wife live with me and he just got a job at Burger King to help me. I didn't want him to work, but just to focus on graduating.
I may have to sell my rims and tires just to keep my cell phone and Internet on. Thought I would have WA going before I ran out of money. Being Broke Zapps my Goal Energy. But I'll get Energy back once I get paid in June.

Sure, you can put your membership on hold. You won't be able to downgrade to a Starter membership, however you will be able to resubscribe to your Premium account at any time and reconnect your membership including training progress, all of your activity within the platform, content, websites, etc (when you can make it back). ;)

If you need to cancel you can do so through the following link:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/home/my_profile

Do know that we will also host your website for 30 days beyond the cut off date, which gives you time to still work on it or move it to another host in the meantime. We can restore your website for up to 6 months if you come back beyond the 30 day mark.

Hope this clarifies for you!

Hey Kyle,

I'm still very new here, but I wanted to extend a big thank you. I've found so much value in the training. This is by far the most thorough information I've found out there when it comes to affiliate marketing and your guidance has been excellent. I appreciate it so much I decided to upgrade to premium today.

I was also hoping you could provide me with some guidance.

In the training section where it talks about making an about me section for your website, it says to use your name to create trust with website visitors. I want to remain anonymous due to the nature of my job and maintaining confidentiality when sharing personal stories. Would you recommend I use a pseudonym and/or explain to my viewers why I choose to remain anonymous?

Thank you.

So glad you are enjoying everything thus far Maria, that is great!

In respect to your question, yes you can use a completely anonymous name on your website, lots of people use pen names, lots of the most famous authorities online, authors, celebrities and actors. There is nothing wrong with branding yourself this way.

It comes down to whatever you are comfortable with. :)

Move FROM Bluehost to WA?

If so it is quite a manual process to move a website to WA, but it can be done if it is a Wordpress based site.

You would have to follow these steps:

(1) Download your content locally
(2) Update your domain DNS settings to point to WA. Here are the DNS settings.

ns1.mywahosting.com
ns2.mywahosting.com

(3) Build a website here at WA using the website builder.
(4) Transfer your content over to WA

This is a very manual process and it can be done, but I don't recommend doing it if you have an established high ranking website, I don't usually recommend moving it.

If you can get your FTP details from BlueHost for your website, you could send that to our SiteSupport team and they will likely be able to help you out with the process as well.

If you need any further help, let me know.

Hi Kyle, I've got a question about keywords regarding what you said in the training about the QSR being below 100 and the avg number of searches being above 100. As on Jaaxy looking for keywords and I find ones I like and are above 100, some a whole lot above 100, the QSR numbers sometimes are above and some are far above, like one was 197 and yet Jaaxy rated it as GREAT!..
Now as if I needed anything else to confuse me, here we go again. So what's the verdict with these both being above 100 and still considered Great?
Thanks Kyle and man this is a lot of fun. I am really getting into this and I have so much content, saved on my memo pad on my computer waiting to be put together with some of the keywords, but I just got a little ahead of myself I think.
Thanks for letting me bug you every now and then...lol

Can't think right off the top of my head. My wife and daughter think this is gonna be perfect for me, meaning the writing co part because I never shut up and even my text message people think I speak them because they're so damn long ..🤣. That's me. I just have to start thinking before letting g everything come out of my mouth so it doesn't get me in trouble...

With a newer website, I would aim below 100. As your website becomes established and starts gaining authority in search engines, you can start to tackle the more competitive search terms...the terms above 100 and below 200 (sometimes you can even tackle more competitive than this).

There are going to be PLENTY of keywords below the 100 mark in any niche.

When I go to do research on a given niche to come up with concepts for keywords (and ultimately content), I ask a few questions of my niche.

**What are some products/services that people are purchasing in your niche?
**What are some questions they are asking?
**What are some problems they are having?
**What are some "how to's" that are useful?
**What are some trending topics in your niche?

Do some research, in could be as simple as a Google search to uncover a lot of these items. I personally start off my keyword research using this technique: This will open your doors to essentially unlimited ideas and concepts, from there you can plug in these keywords into the keyword/research platform that is available to you here at WA. Hope this helps you out here Keith!

I got ya
I heard Jay answer someone's question in his webinar tonight. Someone asked if it was okay that the QSR was over a 100 and he said the same thing. For him it's fine to use ones above that but not so much for newer sites not yet ranked.
I guess like minds....
Thanks again Kyle,

Like minds most definitely. As you establish your website you can definitely start tackling more and more competitive terms.

9/5/2019 - NZ: 9:30pm TOO MUCH YAMMERING IN LIVE CHAT: This poor man asked this question an hour ago. Diane Scorpio and Steve Mand in there chatting away about nothing to do with affiliate marketing and NOBODY is helping this poor member. This happens a LOT in Live Chat and I think you need to give people a big reminder about what Live Chat is all about. I can't help him, otherwise I would.

Hello Lisa - I do apologise for "yammering" as you describe it. As you said yourself, you couldn't help "the poor man" and neither could I. It was not a question I could answer with accurate information.

At the time you chose to take your screenshots it is a quieter period in Live Chat as it was 10.30am GMT, and I see no harm in engaging with fellow members of WA. Plus Steve and I were not talking non-stop, there were gaps of up to 10 minutes in between each comment.

During these gaps in our conversation, I was actually responding to some of the many requests I get for help by Private Message. This is how I achieve my current ranking of 31 as a Top Helper.

Thank you for bringing this to Kyle's attention, I am sure he will be deeply disturbed by two highly respected members taking time out to have a chat.

Hi Kyle.
I have some questions.

I'm from Iran and it's difficult for me to pay for premium membership because The USA Gov unfair sanctions banned iranian people to have Visa or Master card .
Is it important to be premium at the start and if my goal for a month is more than 100$ can i achieve it without being premium member????

If i earn some money with WA , will it save to my WA account until i have a int. bank account like master card?????

can WA send the money to a bank account that is not mine?????

Thanks and God bless.

Yes, you can still earn commissions as a Starter member. You will earn 100% higher commissions as a Premium member, but by all means you can earn as a Starter as our affiliate program is free and included in your membership.

Hi Kyle, I am using a black background. I know this goes against the normal background. I tried the white background and it looked very bland and boring. I switch to the black background and it looked so much better. Considering my topic and theme, do you think the way I have it set up with the black background will this work or do you think I new to change it. Most everybody thinks the black looks okay and is readable. I think it looks pretty cool, but I am not the expert on this stuff. I really appreciate your input. johnny

It's harder to read, and it will convert worse 99 out of 100 times. White leads to the easier reader comprehension and I would recommend it.

Hi Kyle,
Thanks for your reply. Since I wrote the above post, I have been doing some experimenting. What I was worried about was I might have to change my whole theme. Then bingo, I discovered I can go to the appearance link, then the theme link, then the color link and then change the color of the background and the text color as well. Best of all, I can still keep my theme.
I changed the black background to a gray background and I toned down the bright colors I had on some of the text of the post. My wife, Cindy, and I both agree on the lighter background does read better.
I am working on going back and updating all my post with the easier to read text colors. Some of the text colors I had previously were too bright and kind of blurry. I have changed a couple of posts already. If you don't mind I am sending you a couple of my URL posts, one with change text color and one I haven't change yet.

The first one I still need to change the bright colored text.
https://gamingwithgrandpa.com/educational-benefits-of-video-games.

The next one I have already changed the bright colored text with the easier to read colors.
https://gamingwithgrandpa.com/rating-system-of-video-games-what-is-this.

I am sending the URL website as well. I kept the banner with the black background which I think works well with the logo, "Gaming With Grandpa". Everything else has a gray background. I admit it does look better and is not so hard on the eyes.

Thanks for your help and advice, Kyle. I am slowing getting better at this. I want my website to look polished and professional as possible.
Also, thank you for providing this platform to change my life.

I would minimize the header image. You want a small logo up there if anything.

Your font sizes are far too big. You ideally want to keep your normal font sizes on your website that are by default.

You can remove your font size by highlighting your content and setting all your content as "Paragraph" within the selector. This will strip formatting.

I would also move to a white background, as much as you are trying to force a darker background, the grey with black text is still really hard to read.
Reply
johnnyfaulk1 Premium
Thanks for your reply, Kyle.
I know you are very busy. I have a few questions if you don't mind so I am clear.
1st. To reduce the header image all I have to do is go to the media library and bring that image up and reduce the size and update the website. Is this correct?
2nd. Most of the text of my content is the paragraph size. I assume you mean the titles and subtitles font size. Is it okay to have them a little bigger than the paragraph font size so it separates the change of thought between ideas like with regular paragraphs in an article? Do I need to remove my images before I highlight the content to change the font size? Also, can you change the size of the font size of the title in the post? I tried doing it. I couldn't get it done. But the size of the title of the post was set in the SiteContent when I first published the post.
3rd. I trust your advice on the white background. You know a hell of a lot more about this stuff than I do for sure. By changing to a white background that would include the banner and the footer section as well, right?

I am wondering if I need to change my theme also?

I appreciate your help. I want my website to be the best it can be to make money and I know you want to help me achieve that goal.
Thanks, Kyle, sorry to bother you so much. I try to go through the community most of the time. But sometimes you can mix information that can make learning this challenging at the least and confusing at the worst

You can simply remove the header image for now. I would create a logo if you are going to add anything at all. Your theme will usually give you the ideal header size within the customization.

I mean the normal font sizes are too big. Did you adjust these within the body text? Perhaps if that is the default size, you may want to choose a different theme.

Hi Kyle, I know the reply will take a while. I've been told we can't sell the premium membership directly. I'm going to do PPC and feel the $19 for the first month will be more of an incentive for them to stay and get their nose to the grindstone so to speak. If this is true are you going to add a link to go premium at any point or is it a no-no forever?
Reply
Kyle Premium
People can go premium right away, as soon as they join. You can add incentive for them to do this within your marketing as well through the "Messages" platform.

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/share/messages

You can also link people to the main join page:

https://www.wealthyaffiliate.com/join?a_aid=YOURID

Replace YOURID with your affiliate ID. People can join premium directly there.

Sure, you can definitely head in this direction. There is a right way and a wrong way to build a business online, IG is a source of traffic, but it shouldn't be the focus or the foundation of your business. You are going to learn how to PROPERLY build a business in any niche here at WA.

I have spent some time breaking down the process in the most simplistic way possible. Success online is at the core a 4 step process and I have broken them down within this video: Broken, down, the process looks like this:

Step 1: Choose your niche
Step 2: Build your website/content
Step 3: Get rankings in search engines (leads to traffic)
Step 4: Monetize your traffic (the make money part, through affiliate programs, etc!)

This applies in absolutely every niche and as you work through the training here at WA, you are going to be walked through this exact process. This is fundamental for ANY success online.

If you have any further questions let me know Click. :)

Hi Kyle, thank you so much for following me! I just started getting into this digital world business but I feel very welcome here in WA and pretty much sure I will switch to premium very soon. I made a goal for myself to succeed in local marketing and affiliate business and hopefully I will. I'm still concerned about how it will work. As for the technical stuff I'm sure I will be okay, I'm good in learning these things... however writing is something that is really not my strength (English is my second language ). My question is will it be necessary? I guess I don't have to write a blog in order to promote my site, am I?

First off, your English is quite good! You are going to be just fine and you only get better at something (like learning a language) one way, by practicing.

Also, if you understand the training you will be just fine. You can create your websites here at WA in any language that you want and market to any audience. :)

You are going to be just fine Victoria! If you need a hand with anything going forward, let me know and I will give you a hand.

Hi Kyle,

1. When I see a typo in your info, do you want me to make you aware of it? For example: In your article about Successful Affiliates, you typed "Businsess", rather than Businesses, which is correct spelling.

2. Also, You sent me an email speaking of my comment on "JagiR's Profile".

"When people like your comments it improves your ranking within Wealthy Affiliate which is going to lead to some really awesome perks going forward. Thanks again for helping a fellow member out!"

I wanted to say; This is wonderful about my commenting on "JagiR's Profile" will really help his ranking. I do not understand how all this works together or how WA keeps track of all these details, must be by allogarythms.

3. I am still trying to make my website better, but I find that I chose the wrong original design. Is there a way I can change it? This one only gives me one huge picture of one painting. It is not what I want ion my home page.

4. Also, firefox finds that WordPress does not have a secure login page. I do not know about the other pages. Can you get them to secure their website and make us all safe? Thanks, Kyle.

You can follow whoever you like, follow people that help you, follow you or that interest you.

It is up to you, those that you do follow you will be notified when they publish blog posts/questions here at WA. It is your way of networking with others and building your circle of friendships here within WA.


3. I am still trying to make my website better, but I find that I chose the wrong original design. Is there a way I can change it? This one only gives me one huge picture of one painting. It is not what I want ion my home page.

You can change your theme at any time within your WP-admin:

Appearance => Themes

There are over 3,000 to choose from there and you will also be able to upload your own from there.

Simply do a search there (the search is pretty good) and you will be able to find a theme/look that you are seeking.

I have created some training on how to do this that you should check out: 4. Also, firefox finds that WordPress does not have a secure login page. I do not know about the other pages. Can you get them to secure their website and make us all safe? Thanks, Kyle.

They are all 100% secure. There could be a plugin in your browser causing this. Also, make sure you have SiteSSL turned on for your websites.

To turn on SiteSSL and make your website https:// (encrypted), head over the the SiteRubix => SiteManager page. Here is the direct link:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites

Within that page you will be see the SitePlus link, click that. (see attached) Then you will want to "toggle" the SiteSSL feature to "ON" status and SSL will be added to your website within 30 seconds. It is that easy!

Hope this clarifies for you JAngele!

Hey Kyle! I’m sorry to bother you. I just joined premium and I’m excited to learn because I have ZERO experience. If you wouldn’t mind helping me out, I have a question about picking my niche. I would love to do something related to hunting. I’m wondering how specific I have to get. Is hunting my niche, or do I need to be more specific and pick a certain aspect within the hunting “field” to focus on? I would seriously appreciate any and all help. Thanks!
Reply

Sure, you can definitely head in this direction. I would recommend that you narrow it down a bit, what aspect of "hunting" 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. :)

Hi Kyle,
Coming straight to you with this one. I am about to start writing my first article. Am I strictly informational for the first few articles? Just trying to create traffic and a brand? Or am I supposed to be set up to monetize the traffic right out of the shoot?
I completely get the premise of helping people and that is a natural for me. But I am not set up yet to direct people to merchants etc.
Just looking for a bit of guidance here. My site is already indexed on Google with bare bones, don't ask me how. Now I want to populate it with helpful info. but when do I start directing folks to affiliate programs etc.?

You can integrate promotions after, but the cart can't come before the horse. Before you get approved for affiliate programs, you first need to have adequate content on your website (15 pages or so typically is a good number).

So focus on building out great content, and then the integration will happen as you move into Level 3 of the training. :)

I have been doing all the training and I am now on part 2 of the lesson and session #3 which is keyword rich and although in your lesson it say not to overthink it, I can't help it. I find myself stuck.

Since I don't do a lot of writing and not really tech savvy I seem to be struggling just a bit. I have a niche which I have narrowed down to best family dogs which has a low qsr and then I searched more from within that search. Since I know I have a ton to choose from, I wanted to get your thoughts on how to start my 1st post ever in my life LOL.
Would it be appropriate to start with a list of breeds and then do a run down of each dog or start out first with how to pick the right dog and then do additional post on types of breeds and why the make a good fit for a family or a family with children.

My understanding is that if a prospect joins WA, and they used say John's WA affiliate link first say on April 10, 2019, that that member would be credited to John as when that link was used, a WA cookie was put in the prospect's computer indicating John was the source.

Then say on April 11, 2019, that same prospect on the same computer (and cookies were never cleared on that computer), did some google research on WA, and read a review by Mary about WA, and the prospect used Mary's WA affiliate link to visit the WA website.

The prospect joined WA as a starter member on that occasion on April 11, 2019.

Is it John or Mary who gets credited with this referral? I always thought is was John as his was the first WA cookie 'planted' on that prospect's computer.

However there is a discussion in WA suggesting that it would be Mary.

Could you clear this up for me please?

That is fine. There are room for 10,000's of successful websites in any niche. Not an issue at all. :)

Never worry about competition within the niche, any given niche is so vast that there is so much opportunity and so many keywords/audiences that are "untapped".

The only competition you should worry about is you and by being a member here and what you learn here at WA, you are going to have a competitive advantage over any of your competition.

When I enter a niche, competition does not even cross my mind because ANY niche can be highly lucrative and there is so much opportunity within any niche.

You will be just fine, don't worry about competition Winter.

Hi Kyle,

I am on Phase 2 of Affiliate Bootcamp.

My website ( www.homebusinessnavigator.com ) is 2 months old and I have 6 Posts (1 About Me Post) and 1 Page ( Privacy Policy Page ) so far.

My website is indexed in Google since 26 Feb 2019. Also, 3 of my posts have been indexed in Google so far.

I bought my own .com domain on 19th Apri 2019.

Now my question is when exactly do I start adding affiliate links on my website?

In the OEC training Level 3 tells about adding affiliate links. However, in the Affiliate Boot camp, I didn't find it mentioned anywhere.

Also, When do I add an Affiliate disclosure and/or Disclaimer to my website?

Thanks

Level 3 is going to be discussing affiliate links and the integration of promotions into your website. The first focus is going to be content, traffic and rankings. Once you have traffic, you have an audience to promote to.

Good Morning Kyle,
I have a question - I am sure you can help.

I am a satisfied premium member - not been a member for so long - but am working on a few websites and ideas slowly slowly. All fine.

However I may well need to change the setup of my account. Not particularly the user name or picture, but may need instead to put my subscription in the name of my partner who would of course then take over my premium subscription. I can see on the setup page I can change the Real Name, email address and payment source connected to my account. So it looks like this is all doable.Can you please confirm there would be no problem in doing this? Kind regards from Germany - Richard

Hello Kyle, Since my last message to you about the inability to get past Q6 Level 2, I am still in the same position. When you replied, I thought that was the answer. Unfortunately, it wasn't. I have even bought books on WordPress to try and understand it, but to no avail. I said before I felt like a fool but now I must be a fool. No matter what I try, I get the same result. I cant understand that when I put the images on the Edit Page and update it looks good, but when I view the post on the website the images are full size. What am I doing wrong?

The images in the editor will always look a bit different, because the editor column is a standard width and every theme (template) you use will have it's own width. It may take a little adjusting to get perfect, and that is just the reality.

Howdy Kyle. I had a much better day today. Im sticking with my theme, and keeping an open mind. I did reach out to my network. They suggested keywords like(what to do after you lose your job) and( work at home opportunities).. Under these targets, theres much more fish to catch. It makes things much easier.. The last article i posted, has just been indexed, so theres no turning back now. I will let you know my progress down the track. Thanks Kyle.

Hi Kyle I am sending you a message. You said it was ok. I am at the point where I ad the Home Title and Description. My web page is Kicked To The Curb. I will skip the story but below is what I was thinking for the title and description. I confess I wanted the description to say more but what do you think.

my domain "startingavegandiet.com" was turned off because I didn't want to renew it. You even sent me several messages that it was about to expire but is turned off. you somehow renewed it anyway and turned it back on. please issue a refund as i do not want to renew it. Thank you!

Auto renew is now turned off. You haven't paid for this domain yet, so you will not be billed for it.

Let me know if you have any further issues.

Hi-Im-Fran Premium
Yes, I have paid for it. It was taken from my bank account on may4,2019. I can send you a screen shot of the payment if you want. I had it turned off for months. you renewed anyway. I have emails saved that you sent warning me that it would be deleted because it was turned off. Not only that, I just went in and checked it again and it has been turned on again. Also if you look you will see the expiration date is now june 2, 2020.

Hi Kyle I took out the premium for one month only to see if this is what I want to do. And now money went out off my account again which I did not authorized. Can you please pay it back into my account. I am in a financial situation where I can't afford to lose money like this. Its a lot of money and it has put me in a very difficult position now. Please help. I don't want to go with this. I never signed anything for a monthly payment to off my account. This is unacceptable.

Sorry to hear you are wanting to cancel your membership. We have a great deal of exciting stuff planned for the community and platform at Wealthy Affiliate in the coming weeks and months ahead. We are truly going to be progressing and continuing to lead the affiliate/internet marketing industry as we march forward with some innovative new training and technologies.

Is there anything I can help you out with before you decide to quit Estelle? If so I would be more than happy to give you my personal support.

Often times I see folks quit just prior to their break through moment and I can tell you based on experience is that those that persist through times like this are those that turn out to be the most successful (in any business).

If you do decide to quit, we will host your website for an additional 30 days before we remove it. If you want to retain your work, you will either have to resubscribe (which is very easy to do) or you will have to move it to another host (which is up to you). Our hosting support can restore your website for up to 6 months from back-up if you are away longer than the 30 days.

If you want to quit, you can do so within the Account Settings page:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/home/my_profile

Either way, I do wish you all the best Estelle and I do hope you decide to change your mind, but it is completely up to you. :)

Cheers,

Kyle

ok good morning my name is Dwayne I'm a premium member from the beginning and I have a little problem. I was sent a message saying i missed a payment of $15 so my account was on hold. I just went into it a few minutes ago to update not sure why one was missed but not the point. It showed me the 3 payment option screens and was told to pick one so i went to my premium figuring it would take my payment from that one but it started me over and just charged me again for a premium membership which is $55 with taxes.. so now it took out the $15 plus an additional $55 which came to $74 how can i get a refund for the double payment of the premium or at least accredited for it. Was only trying to pay the $15 and now charged another premium membership. please assist i really enjoy this program and it is truly helping and would love to keep this going

It is $19 the first month, then it is $49 per month after the first month. This includes absolutely everything you need to create and grow a business online from the training, weekly live classes, he support, the tools, the websites/hosting, the mentoring, network, exclusive access to all updates...you name it.

We also have a 6 month option for $234 which works out to be $39 per month when paid in full, and a yearly option of $359 which is a big discount and that works out to be $29 per month when paid in full. You can choose either or.

These are all in USD, so if your bank exchanges it it would be at their rate (to your own currency) and any charges your bank charge for this is out of our control, I would contact them if they are trying to gouge you with other fees.

Hope this helps you out Dwayne and if you have any further questions let me know.

Yes I get that part about the first part $19 which I already paid n then I already had a premium membership but it said that I missed a payment of $19 I said ok went to pay it n was charged for another premium membership- cause it said you are now a new premium member when I am already a premium member??? So if my premium membership was late which I wasn’t aware of how come I got charged for the $15= usd $19 dollars or vice versa- it seems I just paid twice for it -
?????👐🏽👐🏽
Reply
Kyle Premium
I am confused? There is a monthly payment, so your second payment was for the 2nd month billing. Your account is in good standing and I don't see any double payments within your account (there has been no billing for the $15).

Membership is $19USD for the first month, then $49USD per month. All transactions online tend to use USD as their centralized currency and if you are from Canada you are subject to exchange rate fluctuations (which currently are not good).

Since we are Canadian, we are also obligated by Canadian law to charge GST (based on the province you are located in). So depending on where you are this is tacked onto your membership.

It wasn't long ago that the CAD dollar was worth more than the USD and the membership was discounted, but this will fluctuate throughout the year depending on the current rates. Our membership is always USD though, that will remain a constant.

Hope this clarifies for you here Dwayne. :)

Hi Kyle thanks for the email, I have only just started looking into affiliate marketing in the last week or two. I currently work for a large courier company working twelve hours a day Monday to Friday for the last two years, prior to this I was a taxi driver for nine years again working twelve hours a day but six and seven days a week so after eleven years working tirelessly to make a wage you will probably understand that I would like to put that same effort into something much more profitable and rewarding. I have made lots of notes of hobbies, interests, ideas etc and yesterday I started researching casino affiliate review sites, listing potential affiliate company’s I emailed the fist company party casino that didn’t reply and then registered with a company called ivy affiliates which included numerous casino sites they asked me to send ID which I did and they replied requesting which website I would be using but I haven’t set the webpage up yet, I thought it would be a good idea to get the affiliates first and then set the site up, I intended for it to be a review website which I’ve told ivy affiliates with no reply. Anyway a couple of questions I would greatly appreciated you helping me with, first have I taken the wrong approach to this and also is the casino affiliate market worth bothering with or is there to many people doing it? Anyway thank you for your time
Kind regards
Paul

You are getting ahead of yourself, you shouldn't be registering for affiliate programs until you have a solid base of content on your website. That is why affiliate programs and the make money aspect is covered in detail in Level 3 of the training, the first focus is content/rankings/traffic.

First focus on an audience before you are too worried about selling anything. I highly recommend that you move your way through the training and take action on that. It is there for a reason and will walk you through the proper process of building a business and it will get you taking action on the proper steps and process so you build your business correctly from the ground up.

All niches have a ton of opportunity within them. There are 3.75 BILLION people online and we are all now more connected than ever. This is the audience you are dealing with the Internet and even some of the most obscure niches have millions of people interested in them.

You should read about this here within a blog post I recently created on this exactly topic: YOU make a niche profitable and that is why it is important that you decide on a niche that you are interested in/passionate about. It will make the journey that much more fun and exciting. ;)

Hi Kyle just a quick question how long after setting up my website should I start obtaining affiliate links? I will be using social media platforms as well

Reply
Kyle Premium
You can start adding affiliate links to your website fairly early on, but you ideally want to centralize them within your reviews. You don't want to have affiliate links on every single page of your site that will impact your rankings adversely.

Affiliate links are covered within Level 3 of the training for a reason, initially you want to build out a solid base of content and once you have established this and perhaps a little traffic, then you can start to focus more on product reviews, affiliate link integration, etc.

PS. I hope you have an absolutely amazing week ahead! :) Chat soon!

Howdy Kyle . The target i have chosen for my M.M.O niche is Out Of Work. I think i may have made a poor decision and maybe should have researched in Jaaxy a bit more. There isnt a lot of people searching for being out of work, and seeking to make a living on line. The keyword i did find is (out of work )AVR 293 TRAFFIC 50 QSR 200 I found another one( over 50 and out of work) AVR 40 TRAFFIC 7 QSR 68. The first one, not great, the second one sounds better. I Kyle, do you think over 50 and out of work is a good target.. Any help is appreciated. Thanks again. Im thining of posting this out to the community . Theres always great help there too.

If I upgrade to premium and pay the $19 do I still have the option of paying for the full year at the discounted price after the month is up or do I have to pay for the year now to get the discount or is annual payment at a discounted rate always available?
Reply
Kyle Premium
You can upgrade to yearly once you are a monthly member ($359 per year, which works out to $29 per month average). You will see the "Upgrade and Save" button within the main menu or you can visit this page directly to move to a yearly membership (upon going Premium).

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/upgrade

The yearly membership will be pro-rated, meaning any extra time you have left on your current month will be applied as a discount to your yearly membership Keawebray. :)

Question. I have a niche, one that I KNOW is great and with the premium membership I could have 50 websites all surrounding that niche, which ultimately will be profitable. However, I am also considering promoting WA as an affiliate. As a new member I see a ton of new members just like me, the premium cost is relatively low and therefore enticing. The training said I ultimately cannot do both. We all want to become lucrative as quickly as possible, me specificly since I don't want to miss my daughters first steps stuck in a 9-5. I'm stuck on making a decision and could use some insight.
Reply
Kyle Premium
If you want to promote WA and work within the "make money niche", go through the Affiliate Bootcamp training. If you want to build a business within another niche, head through the Get Started Here training.

Focus on just one though. You are going to be much more successful if you focus on one business/website versus trying to do too many things at once. You can always diversify down the road.

You can get all of your affiliate links from the WA Affiliate Program page Winter:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/share

Here you will get everything from your stats, the program details and commission structure, your affiliate links, create your custom messages, get banners, and some other awesome features.

If you are interested in promoting WA, I highly suggest you work through the Affiliate Bootcamp. This is training that I created and put a lot of thought and energy into. It is very interactive and if you work your way through all of the phases I can assure you that you will have a business in place.

Hope this helps you out here Winter!

Hey Kyle, Its been a few years. I have another account with you that I let go of on account of health issues. I will delete this account and re-open the other one.

hi there Kyle,
I made a huge mistake when I created my website. I searched on google for the travel+ name and when I was creating I could not use the + sign so I used travelplus, now I saw there is already an website with the name. What should I do?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Choose a different website name. There are millions of potential options out there, so I wouldn't panic at all Patricia.

Also, I would narrow down your niche here. What aspect of the travel niche do you want to help people with? There are literally 1,000's of niches within these categories and you will want to narrow it down. Where specifically? What type of travel? What aspect of travel?

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. :)

Hi Kyle,
Could you please take a minute and have a look at my site: snapdiets.com
It's been a month since I created the site and wrote 12 good quality (as I think) articles with low competition keywords and as you taught in your lessons. One of the key words I used:
"healthy diet to lose weight".
The problem is I get almost no organic traffic. I get traffic from Facebook mostly only when I publish there my articles with back links to my site.
My traffic breakdown for last month: Organic-4, Referral-7, Direct-29, Social-148.
Do I do something wrong?
Reply

Not every page or post you write will rank and definitely with a new website, not everything will get indexed and rank right away.

Typically around the 3 month mark is when you will start to experience a big breakthrough in terms of search engine penetration Sergiy. Posts that you have done up to that point will start to rank, move up the search results, and you will start to strike the 1st page of Google with lots of your content.

Don't panic here and don't fixate too much on rankings at this point in the game, they will happen. :)

Excellent, where is most of your traffic currently coming from (is it the result of indexing and ranking in Google). If so, under what keywords?

In terms of converting traffic, from Starter to Referral if you promote the idea of FREE FREE FREE that is exactly the mentality you are going to attract. Sure, the Starter membership is free, but you will also want to recommend that it is the starting point for their businesses and as they graduate from the beginner stages premium is a good option.

If your promote the idea of free, it will set them up for the 'freebie' mentality and this will hurt conversions.

I recommend that you either minimize the size of your header or remove it altogether. The reason is that upon navigating through the pages/posts on your website, I don't really realize that there is content below it.

This is not good for the user experience and this will also impact your rankings in Google and other search engines as they recognize things like this.

The imagery that you add to your website should be directly within your content, this way it will be much more relevant.

I just find that headers like this cheapen your website. Instead have imagery within your content and use feature images for your posts as that will show the feature images on your content as it gets posted to the homepage.

Don't worry about that, you can always reapply to Amazon. Where is your website at and where are you currently feeling stuck?

Let me know and I will have a look. You were banned from comments for too many disapproved comments. The SiteComments platform is not intended for comments like this:

"Hi, Just finished reading your site and my comment to you is:What a great idea.!!! You seemed to have covered,and covered well,so many different categories. Your photos were great and extremely eye-catching. My only suggestion is, instead using I or WE so much, maybe you can use names. This makes it seem mor personal. I definitely will be using your site, for my own needs. Bravo, you've got a winner!"

That is not a comment that should be added within sitecontent, it isn't relevant to the content, and it doesn't offer any value to the reader.

When you are using the SiteComments platform, your goal is to add to the dialogue of the content and to be highly relevant to the content within the post.

If the post is about "how to lose weight fast online", then your comment should be about this exact topic. Ask a question, offer insight into your experiences within the topic, etc. You ARE NOT critiquing a website, you are not commenting on how you like the layout and you are do not want to comment things like "Great post" as it offers no value.

Here is some training on how the SiteComments platform works: You should watch this before you make another comment as it will offer you a good deal of perspective here.

PS. I have reset your threshold for you. Just be very careful moving forward.

Where are you feeling stuck? Where are within the Getting Started training?

Let me know what you need a hand with specifically or what you don't understand and I can help you out here.

I love to write so that's not the problem. I'm almost done with phase2 in bootcamp. I feel I should be generating some sales by now. I know I'm doing something wrong. If you have some time, could you take a look at my site and maybe tell me where I'm going wrong? I really need to start making money.
Thanks for your time, Kyle.

How much traffic do you have on your website? How many pages do you have on your website? How often are you creating content?

Do you have any expertise with Facebook issues? I added a post with our website link and I am now getting this message-"You Can't Go to This Link From Facebook
The link you tried to visit goes against our Community Standards." We never had this problem before, seems like others have the same issue. Let me know if anyone knows how to fix this. Thank you. Roy
