July 4, 2018 - Day I Went Premium-Independence Day!
July 13, 2019

It has been over a year now and I have learned so much - for those of you new members just starting stick with the program - your road will be long but well-traveled if you use all the resources available here then you will make it!

For you, I picked two of the most difficult niches to break into with very high competition and if I can see traffic at 6 months that means that you can do this no matter what niche you decide upon.

I had no idea how to write content for a website and considering I have been out of school for over 40 years this is not something that I was used to doing on a daily basis. I managed and if a senior citizen can learn this affiliate marketing and build 5 websites and monetize them then you have no excuses except the ones you are making up inside your own head!

Think this is hard work? Wrong! Take your time to listen and learn! Do it wrong and go back and correct what you did wrong. Fail so what, get up brush yourself off and start over. I did all of these things, yes, I created and built 5 websites which caused me to go back and fix them all turning them into 3 websites!

Many sayings apply to this online business for starters "Patience is a Virtue" - "Rome was not built in a day" - "Failure leads to Success" - many more but those three are the hard ones.

One thing over all the years of wasting money purchasing all those systems that promised to make me rich it took me over 30 years to find the real one and I do not plan on going anywhere WA is the only place that you will earn from it may take time, work, patience, and more work but it will come!

I like your message. I'm still in the "new" phase, where I'm working hard but have doubts if it can succeed.

Have you been able to make money with it in any niches other than affiliate marketing? That is my goal. I'm not particularly interested in marketing how to market.

Hey Susan,

First of all, thank you for following back. I'm really inspired by your advise in going thru the hurdles, as I've been on the internet since the time of Nescape and Yahoo, it's only now that I see the light at the end of the tunnel here in WA community. I really wish I have discovered this amazing platform way back then, but I also believed in saying that "everything has its perfect timing". Nice meeting you.

All the best,
Marley2016 Premium

Just remember this is not a get rich quick scam work will get
you to success in time. Patience is a virtue that many do not
possess. Keep moving forward.

Best wishes and to the highest level of success here at WA,

Hi Susan,
Thank you for all the help earlier,and thank you for the follow..I followed you back as well.. I found the google alert url here in a very interesting video. It is only 8 minutes long but well worth watching. I found a new tool, I will be using, you may like it also! Maybe you have it, I don't. It's called Press This. I wanted to ask you about trello. Is that where you are keeping all you stuff for organization? I have heard the name, but never used it.It looks like it will take a bit of a learning curve. I am just starting to get familiar with google docs..lol

Anyway, thank for the tip on trello, and would you please explain a bit more about it?
Marley2016 Premium

Thank you for the follow back and using Trello is easy.
I will be more than happy to send you a PM with
instructions for use I think you will find it most useful
to keep you more organized.

NurseAngela Premium
Hi Susan!

Thanks for following me - I absolutely love your mentality, your positivity, & your spunk & I am glad to have you in my circle. I'm excited to explore your posts & learn about your journey & any tokens of knowledge you've shared.

I'm just about 1 week in here at WA & have accomplished more than I expected. I enjoy how the community works & how everyone seems to try to offer their knowledge & support. Here's to our success at WA! :)
Marley2016 Premium
If you would like to take a bit of advice from a fairly new
person like yourself (me), never skip a task Kyle puts out
there for you. Follow him Step by Step repeat lessons if
necessary. When you think that you are going to have time
to do more work just continue with the one website never
jump ahead or bite off more than you can chew LOL
I tried and it cost me a month of my time to fix it all! That
was precious time lost that I could have gained more momentum.

Best wishes and never be afraid to ask for help!,
GomMagtibay Premium
I can relate to your online adventure. Like you, I've been so many online businesses, some are gray while others are scams. It is only in WA that I learned the value of online business ownership, that if you own a website, it's like you're owning a real business offline. It's good to know that you finally found the real deal online. Keep going and see you at the top! :)
Marley2016 Premium
Thank you, I have no plans of quitting or failing :)
LindaBaxter Premium
Hi Susan, I like your thinking. Being an oldster myself, what you say resonates in me as I have experienced some of the same results with all the gurus out there who were going to make me rich, or their systems were anyway. I too found WA and realize this is home. In addition to the excellent training here at WA, we have the best, most supportive community I have ever seen on the web.
I'll be reading your posts to learn all I can from you. Thanks for all the help you provide here at WA!
Marley2016 Premium
Thank you, please remember I am here if you ever need any assistance do not hesitate to send me a PM.
Best wishes,
How long were you here until you went premium? I was going to do it right away until I read that you cannot downgrade. I am broke so I will have to stay a "newbie" until I can figure out or earn a way to pay the premium monthly. That right there discourages me. I don't mind the learning or hard work but I cannot go further into debt. What is your advice if one cannot go premium right away. Is it worth staying?
DaleOdom Premium
Hi Susan, I agree with you when I first came here I had no clue how to build a website, write content or any of the other stuff you learn here at wealthy affiliate.

I have learned so much since I joined and I still have a lot to learn but I love learning new things. I like the challenge of it all.

Thanks for the connection and if I can help in any way just shoot me a message.

Best wishes!

Hello Susan

I have a question I hope you can help me with. I will explain a little here first tho
I understand the basics of the affiliate marketing deal. But I have not set up any affiliate accounts yet.
The reason being is, I do know that certain affiliate programs do not allow you to have their (my) affiliate link on a site that contains links from other certain sites.
I was thinking about these three sites for affiliate programs
Amazon mainly fitness and herbal nutrition
Aliexpress online shopping
Youtube for video and audio

Now my question is, do you know of any concerns there may be if I deal with these three sites for affiliate programs?

I'm starting to get oportunities to share an affiliate link and I am learning that level now in the training module.
Can you help me sort this out?

Thanks for ANY input in advance.

Have a happy day

Marley2016 Premium
Will reply in a PM :)

Thank you so much! Yesterday, I went to you for help as I could not get Amazon links into my post. I have been trying for weeks. Thanks to you and your video ,I learned what I have been doing incorrectly all this time. At the point to enter into code, I was going into "inspect" and trying to do it there. NOW I CAN COMPLETE THE PROCESS. THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

Wow Marley! " Your Dog: Man's Best Friend" site is, if not perfect, as close too it as I have ever seen. The text size and style is perfect, very readable for tired old eyes like mine; I like the subtitles are colored. It's light and airy and the affiliate links are so tastefully displayed, even subtle. Information packed. I will have to tell my niece about it. She rescues dogs. I didn't see any social media links. Did I miss them? I would love to share this on Facebook.
Marley2016 Premium
I was a little behind on getting those added they should be
available now for you to share, and thank you very much
still, work to be done on the site but I am getting there
slowly but surely.
Greatly appreciated!
Sending E-Hugs and love your way,
SuefromKzoo Premium
Hi Marley :)
It is great to hear that you love WA. I wanted to see your site and searched yourdogmansbestfriend. but did not find it.
Marley2016 Premium
I was just in there it was working fine try again and please
let me know if you run into any problems I just added

Thank you,

Sue, it's the first link under "FOLLOW MARLEY 2016'' in the bottom right hand corner of her profile page. Just click on it. 😉
After all these hours, I'm finally stuck. Can you assist me in answering this question?
What information do I fill in where it requests name and email in the Privacy Policy?

You can use your first name only (or pen name)
and I set up an individual email address with Gmail
for all my websites so that that email does
not go to my personal email box :)

Gmail gives you so many email address for free
you will never use them all up.
GShaw Premium
Another definite inspiration to the community!

We are following each other but I had no clue how successful you have been within WA. We can all only dream of moving up the ranks and learning as quickly as you have in such a short time.

Amazing! Started in July 2018 and is already ranked #5 in WA.

You're showing that age is just a number when it comes to learning.

I can only use bigger and better things come your way in 2019.

It is also wonderful to see another person in the health niche.

It is wonderful to be following in your footsteps!

Marley2016 Premium
Thank you, and it is the community here that
raised my rank - I enjoy helping others it is
just something I do :)

Great to have someone like yourself available for assistance.

I am wondered over to wpbeginner.com because I find I am not understanding enough of what I need to look for when choosing my theme. This is really explaining the many features and how they work regarding Wordpress.

BTw, I thought I was following you but I wasn't. I am definitely following you now.

Keep doing what you're doing, we need people like you to help people like myself.

Thank you again,

JennSlater Premium
Wow! I had to double check if I read that right! You certainly did advance quickly! That’s awesome! I’m so happy to have found this place and I’m looking forward to finally... hopefully... being able to help support my family as we really need it! You certainly are an inspiration! 👏🏼👏🏼

Miranda12 Premium
Marley, thanks for new WA follow. Read your post on how you started 3 websites, which is exactly my own anxiety...too many ideas. Having read you did that kind of helped me feel like maybe its okay to think about more than one niche when you start. Definitely feel to be successful it works to blog with others. I will follow you too.
MayaNguyen Premium

SachiKashi Premium
Thank you for following me. You're going to love the WA community! I'm a newbie too and here's a newbie tip. Instead of just following random members, go to the Rank button at the top left corner of this page and follow the two 100 members. You will then be part of their network and receive their training, tips and advice. Blessings on your journey to success!
Marley2016 Premium
Yes I do know that but I prefer to build relationships with the people that follow me and the people I follow, I do not want to just randomly add to my list. I am new and believe me need all the help I can get, but going on Live Chat has made me realize everyone is here to help all the new comers and you get to know which person to go to for what type of roadblock you have run into (Just what I have learned). Good luck at WA to your success and journey believe me we can make this happen!
SachiKashi Premium
Believe it or not, the top members are so awesome and have followed me back and have been so supportive. I still follow the newcomers and get exposure to the successful members as well. Your choice to go with what you are doing. No worries.
RPalinkas Premium
Hello Marley,
Congratulations! I must say you've come a long way.
Three http://siterubix.com websites, very impressive.
I can't get my website up or my http://siterubix.com because I can't use my email addresses to leave comments & reviews. Very frustrating. I tried Gravatar to have an account with them but can't use the email because rpalinkas is part of the email address.
Whoops, lol, thanks for the follow.

Love & Light,
Marley2016 Premium
Nice to meet you RPalinkas, not to be nosy but what type of email do you have maybe I can be of assistance to you with that.
RPalinkas Premium
Wow, that would be awesome! rpalinkas33009@hotmail.com

I deeply would appreciate any help.

Marley2016 Premium
You can create as many gmail accounts as you wish up to 10, so all you need to do is create an account without using your name.
You could set one up reflecting your website I did for all three of mine: "dogmansbestfriend.apollo@gmail.com" is one of them then I tied them in with my website to use. I really hope this helps you.
RPalinkas Premium
Sending you big hugs & kisses.

That is the most help that I received since I joined!
May the Universe shine on your websites with prosperity & success.

Love & Light,
Marley2016 Premium
You are very welcome Rose, I try everyday to help someone on here even though I am new here. Please PM anytime and if I can't help I am willing to find you help. To do that Use the little envelope at the top of your screen.

Hello Susan and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep referring back to the training.
If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 430 blogs I have published within WA.

You can always get in touch with me as well.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great Saturday.
Marley2016 Premium
Yes Robert-A and I thank you for the follow. So appreciative of everyone here at WA. Although I am new I jumped right in and keep learning every single day.

Hello there,

As you follow the lessons and put effort on your business, success will just creep in. But, also remember to assist others, they also need your help. Success comes by helping others.

If you need any assistance just send a shout out.


Marley2016 Premium
Hello everyone I am not one to usually post much, but since I have been at this for the past 48 hours I may sound a little punchy. I have been digging in with both hands and feet to the training and run into road blocks but have somehow figured most of them out and kept going. If you want to success in this business it takes very hard work I am not going to sugar coat it for anyone. I maybe a brand new Affiliate here but I am willing to put work in to make a profit as soon as I can. Good Luck to all the beginners out there like me and thank you to everyone else for putting up with all the beginners I know we are a pain in your behinds.

Kyle Premium
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! :)
Kerjackie Premium
Hi, Susan, welcome to the WA, online business marketing. You have made a great decision to join the best community, go through all the step by step training, learn how to set up your own website and how to monetize it.
Best of luck to you.
Energyess Premium
Hello Susan,Welcome to WA I just thought I would pop over and say hello and give a little encouragement and direction, hope that is ok? Firstly it does us well to follow the advice from our leaders, in suggesting us to start on the training, because by you chipping away at the levels and reaching the end of your training you will have learned a skill that many only 'dream' about having. We are all here helping each other as this is a pay-it-forward community. Dont give up on you ok? because you are worthy and deserving of having a joyous, financially free life also. Again Welcome to WA.
Me neither Marley2016. We'll figure it out as we go, right? LOL
PjGermain Premium
Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Susan !

Pj here - you probably remember me from my site Pure Residuals. I'm glad to see you've signed up and are ready to get started building your online business.

Right now, there are just two things you need to know.

1) Those who ask questions interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their goals. The support here at WA is the best in the internet marketing industry...please take advantage of it.

2) You can get started learning how to make money by doing your Level 1 Certification Course. Click on the green "Get Started Here" button or just click this link .

And don't forget that you can also access me for 1-on-1 support by leaving a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/pjgermain or by responding directly to this message.

There are a ton of other features you have access to right now, but they are explained in your main training linked above. Your #1 job right now is to get started on the first lesson.

If you have any questions at all, don't hesitate to ask questions in Live Chat or on the training modules. I think you'll be surprised at how many people want to see you get started on the right foot!



PS. Did you know that you'll already have your website built by lesson 4? Crazy, I know!
