About Lucindarella
Joined February 2018
Hi, I'm a self-taught artist with no experience with online business, so hoping to learn the ropes fast. I've been the owner of my own business as a massage and reiki therapist for 4 years now and am looking for a change that means I can stay home and in my own comfortable environment, and make a decent income. I do have some goals around this.

Thanks...staying focused has proved to be a challenge. I've noticed certain 'distractions' have popped up as soon as I started this, so it feels like a test. They weren't there when I wasn't starting something. :D

Hi Philippa,

You are stronger thank you think! The great about the WA training modules, is you can always go back and review any or all of the lessons needed to get you up and running again!

Just remember to never give up on your dreams and goals, keep them before you!

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! :)

Hi Kyle, I think I am clearer on my niches. I want to offer a few different products as well as two services that reflect my gifts and talents for helping others gain clarity in their life direction as well as reiki. I have two or three products that are my own creations and one or two that are other peoples. Chris said that it's ok to pick a few different things to sell and that having my own products will cut out the middle man. :)

I just published my website but not sure if it's all ok? Can't see it how the general public sees it and not sure how to? I haven't put up what I'm offering yet and not sure how to go about that? Help? :D

You want me to have a look at it, I would be more than happy to do so.

Drop me the link to your website URL and I will take a look for you and offer you some feedback. :)

Thankyou. I've tried finding it on google and haven't been able to? Not sure I'm doing it right?

Hey Philippa,

It usually takes 7-14 days to get your site initially indexed in Google (sometimes quicker). That is completely normal.

As you build out your website content and as you get engagement on your website, it will only continue to get indexed quicker. Google will continue to grant you more and more authority as they deem your website to be of value and before long you will see your new content getting indexed almost instantly.

Just part of the process and you are absolutely heading in the right direction. :)

I've just checked google again for both the URL name and name of the company and neither can I find there...so I guess I will just keep on keeping on and wait for it to show up! It's been about 8 days so far...
Reply
Kyle Premium
What is that you or what is the URL of your website? Are you actively creating content and publishing it on your website?

One thing I do not recommend it sitting there and waiting for it to get ranked, it will get ranked and ranked with much more efficiency if you build out the content on your website.
Reply
Lucindarella Premium
Ok, thanks for the tip. I was not actively creating content no. I was first looking to see if the website was there and thought if it wasn't then there is no point in creating content until it is, but I can see where you are coming from.
Reply
Lucindarella Premium
The URL is crystalclear@rubix.com I think?
Reply
Lucindarella Premium
One question that came to mind.

If I have a number of different services and products I want to offer do I start a new website for each one or can I have one website that offers both products and services, if they are related?

For example, my interest is in health and particularly complimentary medicine such as aromatherapy products, reiki, designer perfumes made from essential oils and art prints that are healing or give off a peaceful vibration. Those would all go well together on a website.

Do you suggest having one website for the products and one for the services or is it ok to blend them into one?

Kyle Premium
Focus on just ONE website and create success with that before diversifying and creating multiple niche websites.

It only takes ONE website in one niche to be very successful online. I usually find that folks that try to do too much at once (focus on several niche websites) end up in a state of mediocrity because it can be overwhelming and you don't really ever become the expert in just one niche.

It is the experts (specialists) that create long term, successful businesses in any niche.

Lucindarella Premium
Ok, thanks for that. I'll work on one first. Don't want to bite off more than I can chew.
Reply
Lucindarella Premium
Actually yes, this is true for me. I start a few different projects and then don't finish any of them as I move from one to another without finishing. It's good to focus on just one thing...I just find it hard as I have so many ideas.

Work through the training here at Wealthy Affiliate and take action on the tasks. Action leads to success (that and persistence). If you ever have any questions along the way or feel "stuck", there is lots of help. Just ask.

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

Can someone please help me! I'm trying to pay for the Premium membership while the discount deal is still available. I have something like 4 hours left and when I try and pay it keeps telling me there's an issue with funds in my bank, but when I go to check my account online, it says there is sufficient money in my account to pay the $19 at least. I don't have much left but I have enough to pay it but when I try here it won't let me.

In addition to this, I tried PayPal and it's telling me I have 2 limitations there and I cannot seem to work out what the issue is or how to fix it?

Is there any way chris or Kyle, that I would be able to pay the premium discount amount on tuesday? I realise it's a steep ask, but I get paid then and I'm not sure how else to tackle this obstacle right now? It's possible the bank had some fees that they took from my account, but they have not gone through the computer yet to show up on my account balance page? Not sure what is going on there...I will need to call in the morning to check with them because they are closed right now.

I think you should really contact your bank and tell them the problem. Also, try send the owners of WA, Kyle or Carson, a message using this external contact form:

https://www.wealthyaffiliate.com/contact/

...and ask for an extension. Explain your position to them, what you're going through.

Lucindarella Premium
Yes, I did say I would contact the bank in the morning. I also did send several messages to both kyle and chris and they appear to not be available to reply.

Hi Philippa!

Sorry to hear that you are having trouble. The 7 days usually is available a few days after the deadline in most cases.

I would not worry too much. Sign up as soon as it is comfortable for you.

As to why it will not clear, I would check with your bank specifically.

Paypal can be painfully slow, I know.

But do not miss out on this fantastic opportunity, I will help you get going. Things really open up after you have gone premium.

Be sure to hit me up if you have any other issues!

Thankyou so much. Yes, I talked to someone at the bank and it turned out to be a case of a company I had closed membership with a while ago was still taking a monthly amount out of my account so I spoke to someone from there and they returned all the money they took, so I have no been able to pay the premium. :)

Hey Kyle, I just went to pay for the new premium deal and it came up saying that there was an issue with funds, however I checked my online account and it says there is enough to pay for the premium in there? I'm not sure what the issue is but I was wondering if it were possible to pay for the premium on tuesday instead...that's when I get paid again? I can try call the bank to find out what the issue is, but they usually put me on hold for ages and it's a rigorous process to get through to actually speaking to someone about the issue...I definitely have enough to pay it now as far as the account is telling me but it's saying there's an issue.

Your bank may be blocking your payment for one reason or another. We are a Canadian company (might be international depending on where you live) and often times online transactions are blocked.

I couldn't pay on Apple.com the other day for this very reason, but if you contact your credit card company they should be able to et you sorted.

Philippa,

So... how's it been going? 3 days in and I see that you have completed the first steps in the training with account setup and all, CONGRATULATIONS!

From now you will get more personal help from me and other experts within the community. You have made the right choice joining WA. If you need any help let me know!
I just wanted to follow up with you and see if you had any questions.

You are taking the first steps to creating something special. Most importantly, something that will make you and your family money for years to come.

I encourage you to keep up with your training. Do the small tasks as well as the large. Devote yourself to it. I guarantee you will see the value and continue on.

I also want to share training with you an article written by a friend of mind named "Roadmap to Success" Let Me know what you think.

Remember you have a few days left to take advantage of the $19 for the first month of Premium here at Wealthy Affiliate. Do your research, you will see that no one can offer training AND hosting for anything better than that.

Consider going premium for all the bonuses! Weekly Live Webinars, Classrooms, more expert help, it's all in here!

But again, NO pressure. Do what you think is best for you and getting this business off the ground.

In any event, I just wanted to let you know I'm a real person that has read your profile. And I'm here if you do need a hand with anything. :) I and this whole community are here if you need help.

Thankyou Chris, yes I've been also looking for work while setting this up, so had to take some time for other things as well, but I am getting to know the place better I think, and appreciated the training video, showing me around the site.

Yes, it's fine to keep checking in with me. I will be taking you up on the premium discount in 3 days, and am clearer on what my niche will be for the business I'm setting up.

Hey chris, I thought of a question to ask you. Just finished watching the you tube video you sent through to my email address on what wealthy affiliate is and isn't, and I wanted to ask if, when I set up my website, can I offer more than one product AND a service as well?

I know that my strength and talent lies in helping other people become clear about their own life direction, and I also have an interest in home made incenses, perfumes and essential oils. Can I offer these as well as maybe prints from my artwork...kind of like a mini market, but also with my service or does wealthy affiliate only allow one product of service per website?

BenjisDad Premium
Hi there!

You certainly can. In my video I was focusing mainly on a quick niche site to build. What you are looking to do is build an authority site.

You sound like you have a good niche since you are passionate about it and know ALOT about it.

For your first question: yes. You can definitely offer more than one. I recommend you get a core group of products, but you are not tied to any of them. It's your site and you can really do what you want as long as it is related to your niche.

Second question : wealthy affiliate doesn't tell you what to promote. You promote whatyou want . As long as it's related to your niche. The trick is to keep your site tight knit to your niche.

Having your own product (like your artwork) is GREAT! Because you get 100% of the commission rather than a percentage us markerts get from other affiliate programs.

What you will learn here at WA is how to find find affiliate programs, build a website, how to find high traffic keywords, and build a post to rank for them. It doesn't matter the niche.

Hope that makes sense!

That's awesome. Thankyou for breaking that down for me. I have my art on pages like redbubble and they transfer my images onto items like mugs and ipad cases and t-shirts. I do have collages I want to put on t-shirts and sell, so that has given me even more ideas.

Oh and what happens when someone says they actually want to buy a product that you are distributing via amazon? I know that if they buy one of mine then it's up to me to package it and send it via post but how do I go about distributing it to someone via amazon?

Thankfully I have not been burnt like so many people here have. I did almost join Global Affiliate Zone, after I "Won" $150 for attending their webinar, and that paid for my first month membership...but it was not transparent at all and I felt like a little bunny been lured by a carrot dangling...$2000 later and a water machine that I didn't get to try first was the deal. I didn't proceed, so this one sounds much more transparent and not dishonest, which I appreciate.

I can't think of what to ask right now, but it's night time here so I will sleep on it and hopefully have questions in the morning...
Reply
BenjisDad Premium
We are definitely transparent! Sorry you had to endure that, this is much cheaper. Lol.

No one will promise you overnight success. The system works, many people have found success with it. Follow the training, don't skip any steps you'll be fine.

Put in the work and it will pay dividends. But only if you put in the work.
