Hello good & nice people!
I am a newbie affiliate. I started with some blogs in Blogger, not even WordPress, trying to get some people reading my posts and get some conversions to my links. Not much of this happened yet, but I am sure this time I can do it better because I can learn a lot here with you, Amazingly Wealthy and Wise Affiliates! I feel I am not alone anymore in this..
My many special thanks to Nathaniell, that is the reason I got here :)
last but not least, thank you all for having me, and may you all have loads of success this year! Cheers!

Hello Maria!

Congratulations on going Premium here at WA.

I have found the weekly webinar very useful to watch and now that you’re a premium member you can too.Just make sure the topic being covered is what you need right now otherwise it won’t be the best use of your time.

If you can’t or don’t want to attend it live, there’s always the recordings. (See “Live Video Classes” under Training on the left hand menu.

Wishing you every success with your business goals for 2018.

Hi Maria! This answer is to your question on livechat regarding getting the URL of your product link on Amazon rather than the HTMl code.

First, go to your product links tab and search for the product that you want to promote

Second, you will see which one is your desired product and on the very left of each product, you will see that there are two buttons, one is a 'Get Link' button and an arrow.

Click the arrow and you get a text link so you can just directly get the URL from there without having to manually remove the HTML codes.

Thank you Maria for those very kind words. You have no idea how much you've brightened up a rough couple of days. I know we all have them, but when we read a reply like yours, it picks up our spirits and gets us motivated again. You have no idea how much you've helped. Thank you. You really fit in well here. If I can ever repay the favor, please let me know.

Wow Don, I am just realizing how important is a good word when you need it the most! I am going through a very rough time myself, not even having an idea how I will pay for this membership here, because I really want to go premium, but I had some plans, they proved to be unrealistic, and I got a bit down. But for a period of at least 9 years now, I am only prone to depressions and I let myself fall deep in the pit, because I refused help, even my own, even though deep in my heart I knew I only needed a bit of sincere affection, a kind work...it brings a tear to my eye only when I think back at it. So my biggest plan for this year was the vow I took to myself not to let myself fall again into the dark thoughts, be positive, and this is what I am trying to do here, even if now without even knowing you touched a very weak spot in my heart.
Be blessed my friend, you don't know how much you already helped back with your being so open and sincere!

Yes David, I agree with all you've said, thank you for your warm welcome: it gives me a sense of purpose!
Every time I receive another message like this, from not just a small newb like me, but from really wealthy affiliates and business people, I feel this place here is where all the wonderful & great people in this world ran to and went hidden to the rest of the world. This is why the world outside seems so mean, because all the good people are here! :))))
Let's succeed together indeed!

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! :)

Nathaniell, why are you so wonderful?? :) Your wife is so lucky to have you by her side, give her my sincere congrats! My husband's name is also Nathaniel, at least, hahaha!
And by the way, you guessed me right, I am still undecided about the niche, because I feel am still standing in a too large puddle, that is massage. I need to decide what kind, for whom, and set up a list with all these details, and take the best decision cuz I don't want to ruin 10 websites until I finally get the idea.
Thank you so much even for asking me how is it going, because even your presence here helped me think better and see clearer!
Wow, you're fantastic! :)

Finding a good niche seems like a tough task, but it's actually pretty easy. Actually, ANY niche can make money, so you definitely should not worry if your niche is profitable or not. As far as competition goes, that's also something to not worry about. If there's competition, it just means people are making money. That means you can make some too! As time progresses, new products come out, new technology is introduced, new ideas formed, and each change is an opportunity for "the new kid" to get a foothold and overtake established websites.

So the big question is not "what" is going to make money, but "what do you want to make money with?"

In other words, what are your own interests?
What do you think would be interesting to research and write about?
What do you want to help people with?

A good sentence to help you decide your niche is "I want to help people _____"

Helping people is the best way to make money in any business. Everyone wins. Short of that, pick something that you just find interesting.

There are literally thousands of affiliate programs, products, and ways to make money in any niche or industry if you get creative. All of that will come into focus in Level 3 of your training, so for now, we just need to look at getting your topic chosen, your website built, and then start creating awesome content for your business!

Hallo Maria nice to meet you. I am also a newbie and in the learning process.So I will see where the WA team leads me. The
people is so negative about the blogging thing. I myself want to do something like that. But now I wonder is there really money in blogging?

KInd regards

Hello Bev,

Nice to meet you!

My opinion is that people are negative about everything they don't understand or accept. I am living in Romania, a country where people read blogs but they never buy from the affiliate links or advertising there is there, so I didn't make money from it...yet.
At the same time, I am sure that if I had a more professional looking blog like we are thought here to build, and more useful ideas and reviews than only my weird thoughts out there from time to time, I would have "convinced" more of my professionalism.
But step by step, slowly, as we learn and understand more here and there, I am sure we will both figure out what works best for us.

Take care Bev, and good luck!
Best regards,
Maria
