About LindaMarie55
Joined February 2018
After several years of contemplation, and an equal amount of confusion as I tried to navigate my way through the content of courses that promised digital marketing success (and were actually selling nothing more than hopes and dreams with little or no support when it came to the all important 'how-to' part of the equation ) here I am on the Wealthy Affiliate membership site, feeling confident that I'm in the right place. I came across Jack's very thorough review of this program when I was reading a review he had written on another course I was 2 minutes away from purchasing...I'm still interested in the purchase (sometime down the road a bit) but the 'Wealthy Affiliate' seems, by far, the place for a brand new digital marketer 'wanna-be' to get acquainted with the basics. I love the model of experienced community support, and I'm already looking forward to the opportunity of paying it forward as I learn more about the industry.

You're very welcome, Linda! And this platform comes with a steep learning curve, I know there is a lot of moving parts to what we do here at WAU, but please complete all of the Get Started Here lessons as they are designed to help you build your new career on a firm foundation. Once your website is fully functional is the best time to promote, promote and promote some more.

Best regards,

Keisi.

Congrats on going Premium. Welcome to our community. I saw your question on Kyle's profile page. You can go yearly at any time and get a pro-rata credit for what you have paid up to that point.

The best way to ask a question so the community sees it is to use the little pen icon in the top bar next to your rank, select Ask A Question from the drop down list. Or if the question relates to a particular lesson, post in the discussion thread below the lessons.

I wish you all the best with your online endeavors. Let us know in the community should you need a hand with anything. ~Jude

Hey Linda! Just wanted to follow up and see how you're doing so far. Hope you've been enjoying the training offered here and the community as well.

You must be wondering if you can really make money after going through the courses here in WA. Truthfully, it can be done because I have experimented it and I know it works.

Just wanted to let you know that if you have upgraded to the premium membership, it covers the full spectrum of training, there will not be any further products that you "need" to purchase within the members area. This is unlike any programs out there.

Personally, I feel that the WA course is the best stepping stone for any one who wants to start an online business. You will be a seasoned affiliate marketer after going through the entire WA course.

See what the premium membership offers:

Let me know if you have any questions or need a hand with anything! I will be more than happy to help you out to build a successful future for you.

Cheers!

Thank you Linda for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. If you need any help remember to post your question in the comments section or on live chat, and someone will be able to help you.

I created an informative training tutorial for all New Members that clearly explain the differences between the Certification Course and Affiliate Bootcamp.

I highly recommend that you do not start your WA training doing the Bootcamp. The Certification Course is the BEST option and I explain why in the following tutorial. If you have a few minutes free, give it a read and ask me any questions you may have within the comments section, and I will be happy to give you an answer.

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! :)

Thanks for checking in, Jack...this morning I was definitely stuck (as I've always been when it comes to choosing a niche) and rather than floundering around with my indecision, I decided to go with Kyle's suggestion and work through the Affiliate Bootcamp. I got as far as phase 1, lesson 2, and somewhere in the mix I read an article written by one of the community members, and I resonated with his point of view re: the order of things. I switched back to the Get Started program and in the late afternoon, I suddenly had a product idea, and felt inspired to go with 'Health and Wellness'...I narrowed it down to 'Self-care', then narrowed it again to a focus on 'quietening the mind' and chose "My Zen Site" as a title for my website. I figured it would be a good place to start, and it's a niche I have some personal experience with ;)

I'd really appreciate your feedback on my choices.

Warm regards,
Linda

Well Linda, I think you have found what you want to do online. Basically, what you want to aim for is to be an authority in your niche. You need to be seen as an expert of your domain when the visitor enters your website. So having a good knowledge and personal experience with your niche is important. You also need to have the passion to keep learning about your niche so that you can continuously share your knowledge and experience with your visitors. If you have what it takes (as I've described), then you'll most likely be successful.
