About LahVirtus
Joined August 2016
Hi all, my name is Lisa! I'm new and very excited to be here because I believe there is some other great work for me to do! Up to now, I've allowed fear to lead and define who I am and what I am capable of. I've decided to turn a deaf ear to all that nonsense and surround myself with people like you who are empowered and walk faithfully toward their dreams despite difficult challenges. I'm ready!

My greatest work, accomplishment, and joy that God has gifted me with has been raising two very independent and beautiful children. I have always felt I couldn't give them enough because of far too many trials and lack of financial resources. I want to bless them with more than I have been able; and to make them proud.

I love to exercise, learn, set goals and accomplish them. Currently, I'm working on improving the vision I have of myself and believing there is more that God and life have for me to do.

So here I am in the WA Community ~ I can do this!

So awesome Lisa, I know from experience that goals are what lead us to success. Work relentlessly in pursuit of these goals and they CAN and WILL happen.

In fact, wipe failure out of your mind right now. It simply won't happen. You have too much help, support and an entire community of help behind you to ever let that happen :)

If you need anything going forward, just let me known and I will be happy to give you a hand.

Hello Lisa and welcome to wealthy affiliate.
You have probably realised that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
Can I suggest you browse some of the 200+ blogs I have published within WA.
Thank you for the follow as well and I will follow you.
Remember, if you get stuck you ask ok.
Enjoy your day.

Hi again Lisa it’s a good idea (only if you want to) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.
Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing but.
But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.
Enjoy your day.

Hey Lisa :)

Ok so you have completed your post and you want to make sure your keyword is right.

Ok so your title of the post right at the top has no SEO value. But sometimes when you change this your URL changes, so make sure that your URL is the exact keyword match. You can change this.

Then below your post is the meta title, description and keyword.

Make that title your keyword but also try and make it interesting too so people will want to click it.

Then your meta description write a description of your post and include your exact keyword in there too. Make sure it makes sense :)

Yes you want to get it right, but here's the thing: this is your first post. It wont be your best post :)

You are going to be doing a lot of learning here and you are going to be improving your skills all the time.

The only way to do this is to keep writing content.

When your website is new it wont have any authority in the eyes of Google anyway, it isn't even indexed so to Google you don't exist. With each new page and post you add you are showing Google that you matter.

So... just do it.

I appreciate you taking the time to go over this with me. I have 5 pages and I do believe it's indexed, at least it says so on my log in page. But no matter about that. I just recall from Kyle's lesson on keywords and indexing that he said we are to use the Keyword in the beginning and the end of the post. Not to overuse it, but to at least do it twice.

I also noticed that the permalink put a hyphen in the keyword, you said I can change it?
Reply
LynneHuy Premium
Yes that is fine, if there is more than one word you need to have hyphens inbetween it.

just-like-this :)

Ok so your site is indexed which is great but remember that building authority and getting ranked does take time so don't expect it to happen overnight.

The best thing is to keep going with the training, follow the lessons and do the tasks because that is where you will learn all the skills needed to rank your content while adding authority to your website :)

Hi Lisa and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! I am still relatively new here at WA myself (almost 3 months now) and realize building a strong network of like-minded individuals is one of the keys to our success. I have just added you to my network and hope you could add me to yours in return :) Rick

Hi Lisa and thanks for the follow...

I have followed you as well, as you likely have seen, and I look forward to reading about your personal journey to success...

There is no doubt that you can tap into the power that Wealthy Affiliate provides, and from the sound of your bio and information provided, you are ready to do just that...

One of the most beautiful things about the internet is that it levels the playing field for all would be entrepeneurs...If you think through what it is you want to accomplish, prepare a plan, and work that plan, you can be every bit as successful as the most successful online marketers out there...

It is a fact that most of us do not have access to great amounts of resources to get started, there are few Trumps out there that were given a "small" few million to start our businesses...

No, most if us do it the hard way...we sweat, toil, get frustrated, want to quit, step back, hit it again, and over time, succeed. That is what awaits you...

What also awaits you is that great feeling of having done it, through your own sacrifices and effort, and that the business you have created is all yours.

Best of luck and let us know how things are going...We are all working towards the same thing you are, and are there for you!

Cheers!
Dave : )

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my websites. My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live a month ago and the one on sleep apnea has been up for almost four months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.

PS. Also, quick reminder. Today is the last day to get your first month discount/bonuses. No rush, no worries. Just a simple reminder here. :)

Hey there Kyle, says I have 1 day 18 hrs 8 mins and 23 now 22 seconds :) Still doing my research. Your program is great and very informative. Although, I have been unable to find out what an "average" WA earning is. I can't find anything, outside of those who "review" the program on behalf of WA. This is obviously a very successful platform for you and Carson based on the shear number of followers, but a little honest financial information from the community would be helpful. I completely understand it varies of course with time and expertise in building a business, but it is the most significant variable to consider outside of the training (which is excellent). If I were a member I would be proud to share an average accomplishment within the community - it's motivating and encouraging.

Kyle Premium
There is no average. You decide on that and you dictate that. There is no limit, like any business...and everyone here is working on their own independent businesses in different niches. We have over 700K members working within millions of niches, many of these folks are full time online, lots of people on the other side of the spectrum are not willing to work at their business and never achieve anything.

We facilitate your success by providing you everything you need, you create it through your hard work.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

LahVirtus Premium
I have a niche, would love to talk with you about. I'm in the training right now for creating a website and am unsure of how to move forward... I have a registered domain that already exists, have not used it or built a website from it. Is it important that my domain name be the same as my website as the training indicated? I'm unable to PM you as a starter. Do I have to post details public?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Your domain just needs to be relevant to your niche, it doesn't have to match the name of the initial website that you build. That is completely fine. If you want to run any of your ideas by me, I would be happy to help you out here Lisa.

LahVirtus Premium
In Affiliate Marketing are there concerns or guidelines we need to consider when picking website names and/or domain names, in regard to federally registered business names, trademark laws, competition, etc.?
Reply
Kyle Premium
I would recommend that you avoid using trademarks or franchises within your domain names. While many allow this sort of thing (ex. Apple), many are much more controlling with their trademarks (ebay, amazon, etc).

You could test a search in Google to see if other domains out there run by affiliates are allowed as this will be a good sign. Ultimately though, you cannot truly brand yourself if you are using someone else's trademark in a domain so I do recommend avoiding it.

When you choose a domain, you are going to want to choose something that is "brandable" versus something that has keywords within it. The reason this is the case is because as you build out your website, you can target as many keywords as you like within the content (that is how you will rank).

I have created a discussion here outlining the process and what to look for when choosing a domain name: This should help you out here and if you ever want to run any domains by me, simply let me know and I will give you some feedback.

Kyle, The domain I own is virtuspublishing . com because this gal here has notions of self-publishing someday. I began to investigate a niche I would be passionate about and of course it's reading, children, and building character. The affiliate connection would be mostly books about pursuing excellence, courage, character, etc. "Virtus" Latin. My website name however will be different and relevant to that mission of shaping minds of virtue, perhaps TenderMinds. I had researched the domain name I own "virtuspublishing . com" and recently came across a small privately owned book printing company out of state. Now I'm concerned there is a conflict, although they only have a mailing address, little revenue, and no website. What are your thoughts?

Kyle Premium
If you own the domain you should be fine. They would have to own the US trademark for this to be an issue and it would have to be contested for them to take your domain from you.
