Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate, The Open Education Project!

Before I get into anything, I want to give you two simple pieces of advice within the Wealthy Affiliate community.

(1) Don’t be afraid to ask questions
(2) Take action on what you learn

You are going to find the community here at Wealthy Affiliate to be a very helpful one if you ever get stuck. However, success is going to be the result of you taking "action" on what you learn here so please promise us that you will not only learn from the training and the help you get, but you will take action!!

Want a complete "Getting Started" at Wealthy Affiliate Walk-through. I have created a video for you! :)

====> Click here to Watch the Getting Started Video!


Our initial goals are to help you...

  • Set-up your account profile here at Wealthy Affiliate
  • Interacted with others fellow marketers and aspiring marketers via live chat
  • Understood the process of earning money online
  • Chosen a niche from scratch
  • Have create your very OWN website
  • Have set-up the website for success
  • Have activated your website plugins
  • Understand how to create find and install one of over 20,000 plugins on your website

  • Found a bunch of awesome keywords

Sounds like a lot, but with the training, tools, and support network you have here within the Wealthy Affiliate community you are going to accomplish this (and MUCH MUCH more!). We also want to prepare you for longer term success and creating a REAL business online.

You have to be realistic about this and you can’t expect to know everything in a couple of weeks...it takes time to become an expert and you need to give yourself a lot of credit for all your accomplishments along the way.

I now want to give you a quick overview of the 5 W’s of the community (who, what, where, when, why) as this will help you understand what you are going to be able to accomplish here in the upcoming days, months, and if we do our job of getting you to absolutely love WA, years!!! :)

===> Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1)

Who Are We?

We are Wealthy Affiliate. Our names are Kyle and Carson and we are just a component of the awesome community here. We are very active members and are very experienced in Internet marketing and online business. We are the owners, but we are on the same level as you and everyone else.

Behind the scenes we have a vision and our focus is to continually improve Wealthy Affiliate to become a better place to “learn and earn” within the Internet space. Over the years we have evolved. If we didn’t we would not be the current and thriving community that we are today.

Wealthy Affiliate is the ONLY place you need to be if you are looking to start, build, or scale an online or offline business via the Internet. You have an entire community behind you and we are all here to support each other through the ups and downs that are inevitable within any business environment.

We would like to personally welcome you and thank you for taking the time to join Wealthy Affiliate. I think you will love it here and if you do ever have any feedback (positive or negative) do let us know!

What You Can Accomplish Within The Open Education Project?

The SKY is the LIMIT! Seriously, anything that you have ever wanted to accomplish can be achieved with a bit of learning, some hard work, and some dedication to what is taught here within the community.

And the really awesome part? If you ever need a hand, we are here to help.

Like any trade or any business, before you succeed you need to a solid foundation to work from. I like to say that you cannot build a skyscraper on a mud foundation. The same goes for a business on the Internet. You cannot build something successful if you don’t have a sound foundation of knowledge.

That is why we created our foundation building course, Online Entrepreneur Certification. The first phase of this course is the Getting Started (Level 1).

Access the Online Entrepreneur Certificaton - Getting Started (Level 1)

This is the training that has been created specifically for you and you should follow through this "action based" training.. You can also find this training if you search "online entrepreneur certification" within the search bar above. :)

Unlike any other “opportunity” program, at Wealthy Affiliate we provide you with everything you need. There is nothing that you need to purchase outside of WA other than perhaps a domain name (which we do recommend you get), but you will never see us promoting anything outside of the content that is provided to you here at Wealthy Affiliate.

This allows you to focus on the task at hand and not worry about “the next shiny object” that you have to buy. You are in a safe haven here at Wealthy Affiliate. You HAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED here at Wealthy Affiliate. You can simply focus your success goals and if you ever need a hand getting there, we are here to help.

Learn and then take action on what you learn. The action will lead to success and your potential is only limited by your actions. The sky is truly the limit.

Where Do you Go to Do Stuff?

Our motto here at Wealthy Affiliate is...

“Learn. Build. Network. Succeed.”

To accomplish these tasks, there are different areas within the WA community that you need to go. We have covered where you go to accomplish all of these within the “Learn How WA Works” training.

Get an Overview of the Wealthy Affiliate site Here!

Read the overview and breakdown of how to navigate and make full use of your membership here at Wealthy Affiliate.

You have your fingertips on the training, the tools, the systems, and the community that will ultimately lead you to success.

There are 5 aspects that you should try to acquaint yourself sooner than later.

(1) The Community

This is where you can find stuff, new material, new content, new chats, and new discussions. There are many ways in which you can communicate, starting with the "comments" section at the bottom of this blog.

You can also join in on any chats (on the main dashboard), communicate via the forum, send people private messages (including us), comment on peoples profiles/training/blog. LOTS of ways to communicate and network with fellow members of the community here!

(2) Building Websites & Research

Building websites and performing all of your research tasks is a breeze within Wealthy Affiliate. If you are looking to build a website, you can do so from the "quick actions" menu in the top header (see below). You can set up free websites as well as websites on your own domain in a matter of a few minutes!

You can also see it within the "Premium Services" menu. You get 2 FREE websites within your Starter membership here at WA. Pretty awesome deal right? :)

This is where you will find the keyword tool as well. This is your ultimate keyword research tool that can be used to find keywords for your campaigns. This will make more sense as you go through the main Getting Started course.


(3) Your Member Ranking (the SUM of your activity within WA!)

This is your birds eye view of your activity metrics. You can see everything from the number of people you have invited, to the number of people following you, and your overall rank within the Wealthy Affiliate community (lots of incentive to try to achieve a higher rank).

You can also click the “create” button within the top menu to create a blog post, a website, or a training resource from within any page at WA.

(4) An Unbelievable Amount of Training

This is where you can search the system for any specific training you are looking for. Whether it is a training module (video or tutorial), a blog post or a webinar, the search will reveal the most relevant training from The Open Education Project that is specific to your search. If you are looking for training on local marketing, simply type in “local marketing” into the search.

You can build websites easily. You can build an empire online. You can learn anything you want and if the training isn’t there yet, you can request it. You can get help from those that are very successful within the online business or network with those that are in the same situation you are. You can build a following. You can follow others.

(5) Help ME!!!

I want you to promise something here...

If you get stuck with ANYTHING, ask for help. I don’t want you getting frustrated and missing out on this unbelievable opportunity because you are disappointed with your WA experiences. I want you to get the most out of WA and asking for help is a big component of that. If you have a question, ask us, ask for help in chat, post a comment, write a blog post with your question, or send Carson or myself a private message. You WILL get answers!

When Should You Start?

NOW! Don’t procrastinate. If you are like MANY (I mean MANNNNY) people that I have worked with over the years, your biggest hurdle is the fact that it seems easier to “not try” something than it is to actually “try it”. That is also the safe way out of things...or is it?

You have an unbelievable amount of talent and knowledge and this can be harnessed through the Internet. In fact, I know you have more than enough skills to achieve any level of success you want online!

The reason I know this is that everyone has a specific skill, knowledge, or passion that can be leveraged to create an entire business online for yourself, or to help other businesses out. The technical stuff has become very easy and at Wealthy Affiliate we will help you overcome all of these fears so you can focus on YOU. Your business. Your path to success!

Start with the "Getting Started" training and work your way through the Lessons and tasks.

Your Training Starts HERE!

Take action on what you learn. Action leads to success and if you do have any questions along the way, let us know.

Why is it Important to Get Educated and Start Your Own Online Business?

The world is changing. Conventional education being taught in University is leading to a ton of expenses, yet no job on the other end. Conventional education cannot keep up to the speed in which the Internet is changing the way we behave and the way we do business.

Within the Open Education Project here at WA you are going to get access to the most current training, the most current discussions, within the most helpful community anywhere. There are knowledgeable people on just about any topic imaginable and you should spend the coming days, weeks and months immersing yourself in the Wealthy Affiliate community.

Learn from our training. Create relationships with fellow members. Build a website, content, and new skills. And of course, start "working" towards your personal online success. It CAN and WILL happen!

Take care and do let us know if you EVER have any questions! Make the most of your time here and feel free to use the system to its full potential!

I can speak for Carson and Myself when I say that we look forward to being part of your success and get a chance to work with you indefinitely.

An Action You Can Take RIGHT NOW to Earn $$$!

Before I leave you today I want to make sure that you are off on the right track, so again I'll point you in the direction of the "Online Entrepreneur Cerfication - Getting Started (Level 1)".

That is all for the introduction.

Again, welcome to Wealthy Affiliate and I look forward to getting to know you and helping you achieve success online! :)

Ok I have questions, 1) can I change my name/
2) I understand domains sort of but I don't quite understand building websites in a domain: how many can I have, can they be linked can they be kept completely separate, are they supposed to be just variations on the domain handle or do I need a separate domain for every niche.
3) which way is up?
Reply
Kyle Premium
1) you can't change your name here at WA once you have created it. You also cannot change domain names once they have been created.
2) You get unlimited domains (siterubix.com) and you can install your own domains on your premium membership (as many as you want). You only need 1, yes ONE, website to be very successful online.
3) ^

Great and Thank You for your answers.

I was ill, overtired and over wrought when invented.
I now find it inappropriately culturally specific and well, silly.
Oh well, live and learn, I guess, I am just glad that it will remain just here in WA
So embarrassing.
moving on,
So I have a domain with Go Daddy that I have redirected here. So far so good.
my next baby step was to look at word press and do a fade.
Yikes a bizillion choices! Run!
So what I think I understand here in affiliate mkt. kindergarten goes like this.
So I set up a web page meaning...what?

I take a template then fill it with affiliate links with stuff I find interesting then go to emags and write articles directing them to my website with links to affiliate programs?

I was thinking of having a web site with many different products under one basic theme.
Maybe it should be one website one product?
Sounds boring.
I defer to your fabulously exalted expertise.:)

Not really sure who's reading this but I really need impartial advice. I accidently stumbled upon WA very recently and really, really like it. Everything about it, including the people seem so kind and genuine. There is always a but. I joined Chris Farrell Membership last October and am in the middle of new member course. I have purchased 2 domain names and an Aweber account that I am trying to get up and running by following the training videos. I just can't do CFM and WA . Please could someone knowledgeable advise me what to do? Also, what would happen to the 2 sites I am in the middle off building if I stopped with CFM.

Hey Denis, everything you need can be found here within the community at WA, including the support. It is perfectly fine if you have existing sites, by no means do you need to drop those.

Great to have you here! Take action, be active within the community and ask for help whenever you need some. Lots of help here!

A blessed good day Kyle & Carson,

I am glad I have landed here on Wealthy Affiliate. I have been reading internet marketing articles and e-books for the past 1 year. I have also tried and learned a wysiwyg website designing and have built some websites that never made money because I don't know how to monetized them because It is really hard to understand SEO and hard to implement list building without an auto responder which is very expensive for a newbie like me.

I hope that I will be able to learn a lot here in WA and hopefully I will be earning soon as an affiliate.

God bless to all WA Directors, associates and affiliates.

You are in the right place. You are going to be able to build websites with ease and learn everything you need to know about SEO and then some. It may require you to unlearn some of the "bad information" that is floating around out there.

Fast money is not a reality. Faster money (than the offline world) is far more realistic. There is no age requirement typically and if you take action on what you learn here and work hard, you will see good results.

Hello Kyle,
This looks like a great site for learning about on-line businesses!!. Kyle - To be honest, I know practically nothing about how to make money via online businesses but am committed to learn, start and grow to become a viable business that will support me and my family eventually. Will this training teach all the options or is it focused just around getting people to sign up for the premium services at this site and current members make a commission?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, we teach it all. It is OK if you know nothing about online business, in fact it might be good...no bad habits! Take action on what you learn here and ask questions and we will be able to give you a hand.

Hello Kyle, thank you for the warm welcome!!! Im really looking forward to learning here. I do have a couple small issues already that I need help with 1) somehow I set up 2 member accounts here, how do I delete 1? 2) I was hoping to do a lot of my work here on my iPad but I had a problem uploading my photo due to Apple not working with Adobe Flash. Is there a lot of Flash here? Do u know of any apps or anything to fix this?

Thanks, Brad
Reply
Kyle Premium
I would not worry about the other account. You can have multiple accounts, just log out of the other one and it will be left alone. You should download flash to your iPad or you should just upload an image when you have access to a desktop. Many things that you do online will not be able to be done efficiently from an iPad (I know, I have tried...they tend to be far less productive lol).

You may want to download chrome app on your Ipad and use this as your browser. It will make your web experience much nicer from your iPad.

WoW! Just entered here. The blog says you have everything under the roof except for a domain name. Does that mean you have an autoresponder for email marketing here once I signed up for the premium? I'm sorry if I have to asked this which is kind of stupid I think. I'm shopping around for mentors who'd coach me since I'm a newbie and I dont have the budget for a lot of shiny things right now but want to get started.
Reply
Kyle Premium
No, autoresponders are a separate service. You do not need an autoresponder right away, this is something that you can consider down the road once you are getting traffic to your website.

Kyle, congrats for your new website! I like it - it is clear and offers the needed information for anyone real interested in getting started online. And what I think is the most important is your and Carlson's permanent availability in directly communicate with people.

Thanks for your feedback. It is definitely a step in the right direction. Our last website was a temporary solution and we have been quietly working on getting this rolled out behind the scenes. Glad it is improved and I do think that people will have a good idea of the value WA offers now even before they decide to join.

If you have anyone that you know is interested in something like WA, you can recommend it and get credit for it through our affiliate program (even on FREE sign-ups).

No, you simply can go through the training. It is included. There is a premium membership, but you can decide after you go through the initial training if that is something you might be interested in.

Here is the getting started training:

hi. i hope this is going somewhere i wanna go!
just one nit-picky little point tho - there are rather a lot of grammatical errors in the bit about
'Our initial goals are to help you' - which does little to inspire confidence.
however i will turn a blind eye to it...for now...and if u deliver the goods all will be forgiven ;)

Awesome, glad it added some clarification to the systems here. Sometimes we do forget how big WA is and how it can be overwhelming to newcomers at first. I will continue to refine this video to better serve the flow within WA and to keep it updated (as there are lots of cool changes coming ).

I don't have much of a product to sell. Im just an educated college student going towards a masters in speech language pathology; speech and health/nutrition are the main areas I have any extensive knowledge about. Im struggling to figure out how I can turn this into an online entrepreneurial opportunity. :/

You don't need a product to sell, there are MILLIONS of products you can promote through affiliate programs online. I started out in college as well. :)

Take action on the Getting Started training and it will all start to make sense, that is why we spent a considerable amount of time creating this training. Do let me know if you have any questions or need help with anything going forward.

Age is not a factor here, that will not be a set back. There is not a lot of technology these days that you really need to understand. You just need to take action on what you learn here and ask questions when you need help.

Hi, Mukti here. Thanks for the awesome welcome!

About 3 months ago I committed to learning internet marketing and SEO because it is such a valuable skill, and 3 months later I am in therapy because of it ; ) Like so many, I got beat up baaaad by all the sharks out there selling "the next shiny object". I'm not going to say I wasted 3 months, I'll just call the the "hazing" before getting admitted into the real club! So glad I found WA! I have new hope!. Thanks guys, see you on the inside!

Kyle, here is my idea and please give me your thoughts on its viability? I have 30 yrs experience in the HVAC and Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) field as well as a business owner for 13 of those years. I sold my business in 2008! I am concidering developing a knowledge based web site on IAQ designed for the general public for people who suffer from allergies, asthma or have children who do! The IAQ business is a billion dollar industry. My thoughts are help people online with Q and A forums while promoting the products I beleive in and possible developing a online retail company for IAQ products with links from my site. I may also develop a E-book on IAQ for dummies? I can then tie this all in together? Thoughts and were do I start? Thanks

You are definitely going to be able to utilize what you learn her at Wealthy Affiliate to get a lot of reach to your products and services William. That is what we teach here, work through the training and ask questions if you ever need a hand a long the way.

One thing that is frowned upon here though is promoting your stuff to the community here at Wealthy Affiliate (this is a promotion free environment), so please refrain from doing that.

I am seeking to be accepted by stores to be an affiliate. I keep getting rejected? Why?

Do you have a website? What affiliate programs are you trying to join specifically? Often times they want you to have a relevant website in place first and to be honest, there is no point in getting access to affiliate programs before you have a site that is getting traffic.

I have a Silver Orchid gazpo com layout and it has a box in the right corner of the front page presumably for a picture 468x60 and I cannot figure out how to access it. I do not necessarily need it for my site but it is ugly sitting there empty. Any suggestions on how to add into it?

This is usually done through the theme settings. All themes are different so it is different for all of them how to manipulate this. I would look for the theme Settings under Appearance => Theme.

Hope this helps. You may also want t do a search in Google relating to this theme as there are likely resources out there dedicated to this if you do a quick search in Google.

What happens when you try to upload your image? Does it just pause in loading?

Try uploading the image via your actual profile. Also, try another image:

OK, glad you got it sorted. I will look into this and see why it happened. Sometimes with image files the naming convention used (a space in the image name) can cause upload issues.

Nevertheless, glad it has worked for you.

Hi. I am another one who has received your emails for a while now, but,I waited because I am still not sure what this is all about. I have gone back to school for a degree in web design but am worried there won't be enough jobs for older graduates, so I figured I'd give this a try while I finish my last year in school. What have I got to lose?

By the way, I am an expatriate currently living and working on a NATO base in this dusty and war-torn country of Afghanistan. Perhaps not much here to market worldwide. However, let it be known that this is a country of great oriental spices, i.e "Saffron" and rare stones cut and raw. Just a little food for thought! Any good ideas or questions from anyone in our community? I may not have all the answers right away but you can count on my sincere effort to find out the answers to your questions. Thanking you all, in advance, for your kind interest, I send you warm greetings and good wishes from dusty Afghanistan.

This looks interesting to give it a try. I have no idea about this thing so will bother the community for help. I guess most of the "procrastinators" have given it a try. I for one is not into Internet biz thing but after reading all this with so many people in this forum, it looks like something out there (WA) with giving some effort and commitment. I am from a place where technology is way ahead and our country is still trying to keep up with the pace and the Internet services are very expensive too. Also most sites require credit cards to pay. In this country credit cards is not for faint hearted and interests are very high. But with all those obstacles, I will give it a try and will need more help this time around from Kyle and Carson as well as those who went through such hurdle. Give me assurance that I should be OK. Thanks Aknox.
