About Kyle
Joined September 2005
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!!

Kyle, I have a question. I hope you don't mind. I have now chosen my niche and bought a domain name. I want to get my blog launched and there are so many good designs from which to choose. If I choose one particular theme now, can I change it later? Or am I stuck with my first choice? Thanks.

Kyle, I have a question regarding a chosen niche. I have a great interest in mentoring children that are struggling with reading but I am not sure as to how I can use it as a niche. I was thinking along the line of a reading program for children of ages 6-12. Would this be OK or not? Any help that you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hey Kyle, it's Jess.

So I just joined WA today while searching for jobs online. I'm a young college student who just moved into an apartment in a new area and am in desperate need of a job. I don't even have the money to pay to upgrade my account. I'm wondering if this is something that's actually going to work out for me or if I shouldn't even bother, considering my lack of both experience and money. Not saying that I wouldn't stick with it if it would work for me, but...will it?

all I can advice to you JessCook is to just believe that everything will still workout for you. the night can be dark and long but remember that the sun will still rise and you will have the ability to see the light again. the light that I am mentioning here is your success, the lifestyle that you deserve and am pretty much sure that your faith will give you hope again and through hope you will keep taking actions and through actions you will find the right opportunities that will bring you close to your success. stay strong

Hey kyle I ran this by Edy (the guy I joined WA through) but I also want your thoughts.
I am at the section of the training to choose my niche and I need a little help with my idea. I have been involved in network marketing for about 3 years and I really like the concept. I want to continue by promoting specific network marketing companies that I am involved in which are lucrative and affordable for people to join. Would this be too broad to use for my niche?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Sure, this could be something you do. The key when building a business online (or offline) is building a focused audience and brand through helping people within a certain niche. It is very difficult to make a product/service your niche and that is the reason people that are within MLM don't actually have a business, they are reliant on the MLM itself versus their own brand/foundation.

You are going to learn how to properly build a business online here at WA in any niche. Within that respective niche, you are going to be able to promote many different products (the network marketing companies included). This will position you for much longer term success and a great deal of long term sustainability with your business.

If you can help people, you can create a long term business doing so.

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 Mary. :)

Hi Kyle, JesseB1 Here. Is there any Idea why 6x payments of $65.03 was taken out of my credit card From WA support services When there should only been one of $49.00 that should've taken out for billing period 26/6/2017 As I have checked this morning with my financial institution and they have confirmed this. Please can you rectify this & reimburse my funds back into my account in a timely manner.I think you have a great service and i can understand something like this can happen from time to time .All I ask is that You Fix this ASAP Thank you Kind regards JesseB!

There are two payments for your membership:

April 26th, $19
May 26th, $19

That is all I see on our end here and all we have received. 6 payments? I would contact your bank and see what is up, I can assure you that this is all we have charged you. Could it be something else that you have purchased?

Let me know here Jesse, I am definitely as confused here as you are.

Hello everybody !!! I recently became a member of your clan and have been receiving some sincere welcome notes. I want to say I"m serious about responsible things when it's time to be I am funny in it's time. I have been practicing various type of martial arts, I go nuts when i'm in the ocean or around music . I think healthy, not young and i can do with my body whatever, because the things i do to it today shows up in six months to a year, and in that time ten more years was added.

I love to play at researching the self and that's my main reason for wanting to make money while I sleep. I cant think of anything crazier than discovering the self in relation to others. So thanks for welcoming me, and I hope to learn as much as there is and as quickly as it can be absorbed. So that when I'm up and running I shall pass it on equally as it was given to me. Thanks !

There are likely resources that you could leverage for this out there. If you cannot find anything though, perhaps that is an opportunity in itself.

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

This is a very broad question but will definatley help me decide if I upgrade or not. Can I succeed in affiliate marketing without having a paypal account. Because mine was compromised some time ago and now paypal doesnt want to seem to have anything to do with me
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yes, most definitely you can.

All companies pay differently, most offer at minimum check payment. For example here at Wealthy Affiliate we pay via Paypal as our primary payment method, but we can also pay via check if you reach over a certain threshold. :)

As I said though, every company is different and they will state how they pay when you become part of their affiliate program.

Hi Kyle! Thanks for reaching out to me, I can't wait to go through the training and learn more about affiliate marketing. I learned a little bit about it in school but haven't had any real life experience with it. I work as a web developer and love that I can hopefully help others and get help in return!

HI Kyle, I am plugging along with the training. I am down to creating a website. However, I was looking at some of the questions from other people and I have a few questions. I will be upgrading to premium soon but want to see what this is all about first.

Once I build my website is it available right away or do I have to do something to have it go public or live? (Sorry I don't know the exact term) I want to be able to work on it until I am happy with the results before putting it out there.

I am interested in 2 things right now. I want to promote WA for one. How do I promote WA on a website and what are the benefits?

The other is hard to explain. I want to promote things like sports apparel, jewelry, etc... for any sport. I love the Texans and Astros and there are so many sports fans out there. How do I do that?

Thanks for your help.

When you build a website here, it will be live right away which you want. As you publish content and pages and posts on your site, that will be public as well.

Hello Kyle,

I´ve really got interested in this website, so I´ve started to read all those lessons, and came up to a "niche choosing"... Obviously, I've got many ideas, but after reading a lesson I've started to doubt. So I would be grateful if you'll help me to choose the best ones which would really work as first website.

Here is the "ideas":

1) Photos - the usual photo gallery where people can create an account and then share their photos and rate ones of anothers.

2) Art - the same as the last one, but based on art (drawings).

3) Game website - the website that pointed on games: news, tips.

4) League of legends (game) - the website where you can find people to play with League of legends, also some tips, counter picks etc.

5) Meet people online - meet random people in chat one-on-one, or create your own chats pointed on particular group of people.

6) Q&A website - usual Q&A website.

7)Tea website - the site based on teas: their sorts, which are good at particular state of body, how to make a nice tea etc.

Best wishes,
Steven

Hi Kyle,

I am a new member and keep getting e-mail to upgrade. But I have few questions about it and online marketing site in general. Please reply to them.

(1) With the upgrade, I can possibly build 50 websites . What will happen to those websites in case I discontinue the monthly upgrade subscription? Will I loose access to those websites?

(2) With the upgrade, will I be able to talk to you to discuss about my issues and get advice at least in the beginning?


(3) If I want to have my own domain, then for each website, do I have to buy a separate domain with .com extension?

(4) For amazon affiliate, can I use their product picture directly without any legal issue?

(5) For any production information, is it legally OK to put together information from many different blogs already existing in the internet?

(6) For any production video, is it legally OK to use someone else's YouTube video on the topic?

(7) Without an upgrade, how do people get Help and Support?

Appreciate your response.

Thanks,
Bharati

Sure, happy to help:

(1) With the upgrade, I can possibly build 50 websites . What will happen to those websites in case I discontinue the monthly upgrade subscription? Will I loose access to those websites?

You would have to move those sites to another hosting service. Comparable hosts to what you get within Premium are around $250 per month. We offer an industry leading hosting platform here.

(2) With the upgrade, will I be able to talk to you to discuss about my issues and get advice at least in the beginning?

Yes.

(3) If I want to have my own domain, then for each website, do I have to buy a separate domain with .com extension?

Yes, if you want your OWN domain, you will have to purchase it. You own your domains just like real estate.

(4) For amazon affiliate, can I use their product picture directly without any legal issue?

You will want to use their image widgets, they will give you these when you join their affiliate program.

(5) For any production information, is it legally OK to put together information from many different blogs already existing in the internet?

You never want to copy information from another website onto yours. This will be deemed duplicate content and Google actually won't rank your site if you do that.

(6) For any production video, is it legally OK to use someone else's YouTube video on the topic?

Yes, you can embed any Youtube video you like onto your website.

(7) Without an upgrade, how do people get Help and Support?

You have access to communication for the first 7 days. Beyond that, you will need to be Premium if you want personal support and mentoring.

Hi, Kyle!

I'm trying to create a video walk through of Wealthy Affiliate from the perspective of somebody just signing up. I thought I would create a dummy account.

I am running into the problem in that no matter what name or email I put in the sign up form, I get a message saying that i'm already a member.

I want to show what the starter membership looks like with the Premium features blocked out.

What do you suggest I do? Should I just sign in to my own account and then explain what is only available to Premium members?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, that is because you already have an account. We don't allow people to have multiple accounts here from the same computer (to prevent gaming).

That is why. If you want to send me the details you want me to set up a dummy account for, drop me a PM and I can do that for you!

Good day Kyle, hoping I find you well. How can I get a referral commission if I personally refer someone to us here at WA. What I mean is if Im verbally having a conversation with someone like I did last night and I recommended them to look at us and become a member.
Reply
Kyle Premium
You get a credit when a referral fills out their profile image/description. That is what will lead to a credit.

Regardless of whether or not someone performs these tasks (not everyone does), your referrals are YOURS for lifetime and if they upgrade to Premium at any point you will get full affiliate credit.

Hope this clarifies here.

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

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.

scorpwealth Premium
Should I start with the Affiliate Bootcamp before I start or complete the regular Get Started Here Course? Meaning is it one in the same? And I'm still not sure how to get the credits or commissions by referring someone to WA right now as of this second. Look what I mean is this, let's say hypothetically if you and me right now met at an event and we got to talking and eventually we shared some common beliefs and interests and I said Hey! Kyle why dont you check out WA it's great, and then you go online and you sign up. How do I get the referral?? Sorry I am slow with all this stuff but I will start the bootcamp course tonight.

Thanks for your patience, I'm a better face to face communicator and sometimes wish WA had a real person that we can call up and talk to because I know my question would be better understood with a simple phone call. Have a great night and hopefully I'll get this right.

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.

Hope this helps you out here Tony!

in the beginning course lesson 10, I'm told I've accomplished a lot already. Then there's a list of things I should have done. I don't see where I have
*created valuable content within my niche; have set up the website for success; created first page of content(about me doesn't count).
When do I link up with how to sell things? Maybe I missed something because if someone comes to my website right now, I'm no step closer to selling them anything because I have nothing on the website to sell. I haven't even seen how to use those keywords for people to search on Google. Am I buggin?

Yeah, we actually have a "Move" feature that you will see right within the SiteManager.

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites

You can move any domain to any domain hosted here at WA. For example, if you wanted to move your Siterubix website to a domain that you have purchased, then it is a very simple process.

The "Move" feature also handles for all proper redirects and SEO, it will transfer your site in its entirety and it is as simple as a few clicks. See attached screenshot for what I am referring to here.

Hi Kyle, I haven't gotten very far yet! I had a family member admitted to hospice so we have been dealing with a lot. I tend to overthink things! and as you know I have found my niche. inflammation remedies however I am having difficulty trying to fine a theme out of all the categories. should I find one that's close to blank and build from pictures that I see online? and if so is that explained somewhere. I haven't been able to find anything covering that.

Thank you!
Reply
Kyle Premium
Choose a theme that is simple, ideally with a white background and black text (as this is the most readable).

I tend to avoid themes with too many bells and whistles as the focus of your website will be your content and your content will make your website look visually appealing to your audience.

So choose something simple, yet elegant and if you ever need to change down the road, you can easily do so within Appearance => Themes.

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

I have created some training on how to do this that you should check out:

Hi Kyle,

Sorry to disturb, boss. I need a help to notify Site Support to provide Transaction ID to enable the transfer process of my websites' domain. Since my writing access has been revoked last week, it is a struggle for me and I can't even find any single help anymore.

I did a mistake I admit and the way I have been penalized seems I am jeopardizing this great WA platform. The guilt feeling drives me to walk away from WA for good. I seek one last help, my friend, for Site Support to provide me the Transaction IDs needed for my domains:

-afqmhub dot com
-discounthotelpricesonline dot com
-virtuafootprint dot com

I wish the Support could email to me at afqm24 at gmail. This is the only way I could write a note here to seek help one last time.

Thanks for WA wonderful experience since July 2016.

Yours sincerely,

Good morning from my small village in England , Kyle. Just wanted to say that I have now completed Course 3 of the Certification and things seem to be going well. Thanks so much for the opportunity. Would love to promote WA as I really believe in it. Maybe an idea when I've learned a bit more do you think ?
Be healthy, be happy and be safe my friend. You and yours. Roy

Sure, you could promote WA whenever you like and if you ever want to, head through the Affiliate Bootcamp. What I recommend though is you focus on creating success within one niche (your current one), and then you can diversify and be involved in many niches down the road.

Nothing but time here and naturally as you move forward you will likely be involved in many different niches at some point.

I'm on course 1, lesson 7 of the the affiliate bootcamp. I'm creating the content for my About Me template. I feel like i'm doing something wrong. I feel like I should be promoting WA more, but I also feel like I shouldn't. I'm pretty sure i'll be told to create more pages? I feel like I shouldn't put everything into just this one, or should I?
Reply
Kyle Premium
No don't feel like you should. Every page on your site doesn't need a bold promotion, you want to help people first, promote second. Just remember that and as you build out your website there will be many ways in which you can promote things.

Hi Kyle I need your help. I activated the e-commerce plugin and plant woo commerce+shopify. Will this give me the access to see my store at shopify? I have to add a personalized domain ADDITIONAL to the one I have here which can help my followers( customers) to remember my online store.This is a drop shipping business so that I want to link it with my website financial- freedom123.com. what are the protocols I should have to follow and in general how can you help me to use my WA platform to launch my buisness. With best regrds.

I have never used this plugin, so you will have to test. I can see that domain is not pointing here to WA, so that would definitely be the first issue here.

Hi Kyle - just letting you know that I will be off site until Thurs of this week. We have out of town guests coming in from out of the CA. So my activity maybe less than your expecting because of this.

My understanding is that it's $19.00 the first month and $49.00 after that is this correct. Are there any additional expenses per month for my website?

Appreciate your help on this because I need to know ahead of time so I can budget for added costs if there are any.

Take care ! Marilyn

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 yearly option of $359 which is a big discount and that works out to be $29 per month. You can choose either or.

The only other potential expense is a domain of your own, which will be around $14 per year for your very own .com domain.

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

Hey, Kyle!

I just finished Lesson 9 of Course 4 of WA Affiliate Bootcamp. I just wanted to mention another free video program that offers so many features and was wondering what you think. It's called ezvid. Here's the link.

https://www.ezvid.com/download

Also, I'm just wondering how to use video. Other than showing how WA works once you sign in, what else could you show people? Are you talking about videos like ...How To Install A Plugin in WordPress. That kind of thing?

I'm going through the Affiliate Bootcamp now Kyle. I was about to set up my website an decided to make Wealthy Affiliate my niche. Only problem is I only have 56 mins. left before my time runs out to get the $19 Discount for the first month. I set up my account 7 days ago but became very sick with a respiratory infection. I am still sick but realized my time was running out and now I don't have the money to do it because I've been sick all week. I really wish I could have became a Premium Member so I could have your help through this. Should I set up my website now before my time runs out or keep going through the Affiliate Bootcamp first.

Hello Kyle,
What have you heard about Web Advantage.com and Geeker.com. I only learned about them when they stole nearly $400.00 from my credit card. How would they have been able to access my ID and credit card information? I know there is a cost of doing business, but I had not known of them before I saw my credit card statement. These fraudsters are of whom our entire community need to be aware. See Rip-off Report.

Good morning Kyle,

I wish you have a fine day, always!

I just started with Course 2, Lesson 1. (Your Own Domain, Your Brand). So at the LiveChat yesterday I asked if it is okay to change my site theme, without affecting the pages, etcetera which I've done so far.

So the members in the LiveChat said YES, anytime. And I was sent the lesson's link by Marion on 'Backup Plugins'. And I've listened to it. But how would I go over them? I'm worried I might not do it, the proper way. Which should I do first now? Select a theme, then proceed with the backup? And then after that, how do I put all back together with my new theme?

Kyle, I am confident you can assist me well with this. Also, I did not get my domain from siteubix. I joined Premium right away, then purchased domain from WA. Hence, I do not have anything to "move domain" like the one taught and showed in the tasks on Lesson 1/Course 2 (Your Own Domain, Your Brand). Am I good then, to proceed with the tasks on the next lessons?

But that brings me to my first question... How can I change my theme without jeopardizing everything which I have already started? I might as well settle for my original theme.

Thank you Kyle. I hope to hear from you. I am enjoying the lessons by the way and the training as a whole. I am really grateful for having found WA.

May you have a blessed day,
Felix
Reply
Kyle Premium
The training will walk you through the process Felix, you are overthinking things here. You DO NOT need things like a backlup plugin, etc. Work through the lessons, take action on the tasks and you will be well on your way.

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 Felix. :)

Wow! That is so crazy. I just went to the next lesson and you talk about taking AdSense off (potentially). I want to take it off but I don't remember where I installed the link and I'm afraid I might just shut my site down if I don't get expert help! Kyle, help me:-)

Can you take a look and tell me what suggestions you would have for me? Do you think that Adsense is too obtrusive on my site? Any other recommendations? Appreciate you guys!
http://FeelYourAbsoluteBest.com

Kyle Premium
A few things:

(1) Be thorough with your content. Quality content is content that is helpful and often times means it being thorough.

With each page or post you create on your website, people should come to it and feel as they have gotten the help/information that they were looking for and it was presented in a way that was interesting.

Ex. https://feelyourabsolutebest.com/224-2

You ideally want every page or post on your website to be 1,000+ (they will of course differ from post to post). This will lead to much better rankings in search engines, and rankings that "stick".

(2) Make sure your URL plugs are reflective of the post. In this case:

https://feelyourabsolutebest.com/224-2

224-2

Isn't the post title. You will want to set up All in One SEO as it will automatically do that for you.

(3)
Focus on getting more comments and engagement going within your posts.

We have a SiteComments platform here at WA where you can get comments on your pages/posts. Within the SiteRubix menu under SiteComments you will be able to gain access to this platform. Here is the direct link:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/comments/requests

This is great for getting engagement on your website (which leads to rankings) and this is what I suggest you do with every new post you build on your website.

I wasn't trying to change the theme, I was thinking of removing Adsense and was worried about deleting it because of the coding area...

I have fast fingers! lol

I wouldn't try to race to success or no success will ever happen, but I can tell you that you will be able ot speed up the path to get there through effort and hard work (and of course taking action on the training here).

I don't recommend worrying about an autoresponder or getting into email marketing until you have a source of traffic no less than 100 clicks per day.

If you focus on email marketing before that, it is far too premature and you will end up spending too much time on managing your list, broadcasts, follow-up sequences, integration into your site, etc...without focusing on the most important thing first. Traffic!

Sorry to be a asking this it's quite embarrassing but I would like to benefit from the discounted start up fee but it runs out before I get paid, is there anyway to extend it or reduce it back down when I am able to sign up, I found this a week too early.

Also can I just copy the affiliate links and paste them in a message to people or do it have to install them some where for them to click on them, thank you in advance.

Sorry one more does it matter that I'm in the UK with payments or any part of the facilities here?

Yeah, some themes by default don't show pages in the header menu.

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!

If I sign up to be a premium member today, would I be paying $19 for the rest of June and the second month starts at July 1st?

Hi Kyle, I'm confused by Google Plus when setting up account. I seem to have no idea what I'm doing when setting up account/s.

I seem to have accidentally set up a brand account. So I seem to have 2 accounts, one with my personal name attached and another account that said brand account that had the username I signed up with. Given that the username sounded like nonsense, I changed it to my website domain/company name.

However, it looks like you and Carson have just one Google Plus account?

Do I use a "personal" account for business or a "brand name" account?

@Kyle I do have one question, well 2 actually:
1. You mentioned it takes some time for your first website to be indexed into Google (7-14 days), How long did it take for you? This is more of a curiosity question
2. If I can't buy premium now,(I dont make any of my own money yet, so I can't purchase anything online), will Course 2 make or break me from making any money from my website? I finally finished Course 1(Woohoo!) and the last requirements on Lesson 10 worries me.

And yes, my weekend is going by smoothly! I got my website complete and am considering making a second one with a different niche. The Camera niche that you mentioned has in fact caught my eye, since I myself have been considering buying myself a new camera so I can photograph lightning storms and such.

Another, small off-topic question is: In the lesson that goes over keywords, (I think lesson 8 or 9), how will looking up those keywords benefit said website? Just looking them up is one thing, but I don't see how looking them up will affect my website.

And finally, you've asked how my weekend was, so i'll ask you: How was your weekend?

Thanks for being here with me every step of the way by the way, I really appreciate it! Cheers!

Hey Kyle,
This is my third message, don't know you got the others before.
Anyway am having an issue. When I upgraded from free member to premium it was $20, which I why I did; to take advantage of the added facilities. That was may 16th, now this month am being asked to pay $49. I can't understand why. I signed up for $20 now it's $30 more. If that is the case I wish to have the $49 put back on my card and my membership cancelled as I just can't afford it at this time. If it's an error please have it corrected as am more than happy to remain a member as I appreciate the value of what is offered.
Anything else is outside of my budget and I will have to forego until....

I'm still here - been pretty inactive due to all sorts of other things getting between, but it's now or never, and it isn't going to be never, so it's now! I want to succeed and be a success, able to help family and friends and show them the way here, but first I have to make it work for myself or they won;t take any notice. My website is way off track so I will work on that and social media is, no was, a stumbling block, but will get onto that too - need a photo.

Now that my sleeves are rolled up to make it work this time around, I actually am looking forward to an amazing week coming up. Before I continue with the course, I am going to back up and update my website, something I shied away from due to the dire warnings of things that could go wrong - this in itself was an obvious mistake as it also stopped me from growing my website as it was not updated and so lost confidence in it. So today I have downloaded WP's Backupguard plugin, and now I will go back there and do the rest and update to WP's latest version on offer - yay! It's also great to know that if it doesn't work I can send a ticket to the Site Help people. Nothing is hard ... one just has to DO it!!! Thanks again............

Hey, Kyle,
It'll be about an year I'm in WA. I've built 2 sites - http://toolsworld.hotcoms.net and http://hotcoms.net. The first is my try to build a site. I still continue build it, changing and changing. It's appears too wide with a lot of niches, and I decided to devote it to tools niches and took the sales niche from it, making the site http://hotcoms.net/sale-a2z. It takes a lot of time to follow sales changes, to ad new sales, so, actually, I do not have a spare time for anything else. And, unfortunately, I have 0 conversions on both sites, for about an year no profit at all. It looks strange for me. There are, in my point of view, very good sales for about of any kind. I've used AdWords, http://fiverr.com, sometimes the traffic was hundred of thousands, but no conversions at all. Here is a question, when I use a banner, for example, of Amazon, and if I click on that banner, I see in opened url address my tracking ID. When I click the banner of another advertiser as Macys, Walmart, etc., my tracking ID dissappears from opened url. May it affect conversions?
Dear Kyle, I know you're very busy, but I hope you find some time to take a look at my sites and tell me what I'd do to make them profitable. Or might be my niches are not good, and might be I need to make sites with different niches? Thank you.

They are far too broad. If you want to be successful online, you need to be an EXPERT in something, not a generalist and I think this is going to be an ongoing issue for you if you head down your current path.

The fact that you are so broad and generalized can be hurting your conversions and also your traffic, because it is the "authorities" that get the ranks, and that people trust enough to buy from.

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 Yan. :)

Hello, I am new and have been offered information from another member on a PDF regarding increasing traffic. When I said it would be great to get this PDF the come back, "WA does not allow sharing of the PDF send me your email and I will ship it to you"????? Is this person phishing form my email only? I am a little creeped out by this.
