About MiaL
Joined November 2017
Hi I'm Melissa. I'm a mum to twin boys and joined WA to balance my work and family. I am continuing to learn here at WA and am working my way through the training. I am building out my website which is taking shape and evolving into something that I'm really proud of.

I've learnt so much being here already, and I enjoy it more each day.

Being here has renewed my love of writing and doing research. I didn't know I had it in me to do this, and it turns out I do!

Thanks for visiting :)

Hi Melissa,
Thank you for connecting.
I admire you as a working mother with twin boys.
My daughter has three boys & is also a working mother.

Wishing you great success here with the WA family.

My progress has been extremely slow here & it is all of my own doing. There is so much help & training here I just need to take action.

Hi Denis, thanks for your kind words.
Your daughter sounds like super mum! Juggling 3 kids and a job is no walk in the park!
I hear what you mean re progress being slow. It's hard to get lots of momentum sometimes, even despite all the amazing training and resources here.
I hope you're enjoying the WA journey. I know I am! Wishing you much success here too.
All the very best :)
Cheers

Hi, Melissa.

Thanks for following me and joining my network; I've returned the compliment and followed you back.

Keep moving ahead. However your day may be, take a little step forward. Some days you'll make significant strikes, other days you will not, but do something every day, however small in building your business. My mantra is do something every day to grow my business, however small it may be.

Pace yourself and enjoy your journey.

Best wishes,
Paul.
Be Happy!

Being a retired teacher ,my specialism being Maths, research and writing, but with a desire to help anyone who needs help, guidance and encouragement to embrace a "frugal" life in this age of ever escalating living costs.

Hi Mia, nice to hear from you. I look forward to getting to know you my new WA friend. Sorry about the huge delay in responding but I am a bit slow at the moment. Trying to do too many things at once.

I have left you a comment on your Alternatives Post.

If you have time I would love it if you visited my website and left a comment on a post, any one will do. The site address is https://workingonthewildside.com.

Keep working hard, having fun and don’t forget to ask questions.

A very nice boss once told me, ‘Helen, when you ask a silly question everyone else breathes a collective sigh of relief because they don’t have to!’ And that is so true. No question is silly so ask away.

If I can’t help I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Now let us keep in touch.

Ciao

Thank you Melissa for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. As a Premium Member you are now in the process of creating content for your affiliate marketing website.

It is important to fully understand how you should go about creating that content that will produce high Google rankings. Using low competition keywords is only a small part of the process.

Google has a set of guidelines for people creating content on their affiliate marketing websites. They do not like affiliate sites that are heavy on the selling and light on the help.

Though this may not occur to you in the beginning of your affiliate marketing journey, offering help instead of selling to your website visitors will yield more sales.

When you have some time, read the brief training at the link below which will explain Google's guidelines in a more simplistic way. When you help instead of sell, you will see better results.

Hi Melissa, thanks for the follow!

If you've visited my profile page, you'll see that my membership is attached to an academic project (yes, I know, very boring, and not at all entrepreneurial and ambitious like some of the stellar members here).

That means I'm in and out as time allows. Right now I'm trying to make the most of a quiet weekend and catching up on site posts. But I hope to see you making good strides through the course whenever I'm about!

Are there any niche projects you have in mind?

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! :)
Reply
MiaL Premium
Hi Kyle,
Thanks for reaching out. My idea for my first niche is lunchboxes and lunchbox accessories. Anyone with school aged children goes through having to buy lunchboxes and in many cases multiple lunchboxes because they aren’t quite right. And there are multiple online groups where parents (usually mums) share their lunchbox photos etc. so it is a ‘thing’!! What are your thoughts on that?

I also had a couple of questions for you if you don’t mind, in relation to the premium membership:

1. I understand that 25 domains would be available through which I could use the wa tools. Would I need to pay for the purchase of the domain names in addition?

2. Whilst I have every intention of making this work (in fact I want to be able to replace my current income so that I can work from home!), if it doesn’t, can I opt out of premium so that I’m not paying a monthly fee? Are there any time periods where I am ‘locked in’?

Many thanks Kyle, I really appreciate your time!

I’ve had a good look through the site and have set myself some goals for week 1. The training so far has been great and I thank you
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, that is most definitely the direction you could head with your niche. If this is something that you are passionate about, definitely go for it Melissa!

The domain within the Starter membership are created on the .siterubix.com domain, you are in full control of the content, but you don't own the actual domain.

When you are ready, you can move these sites over to your own domains with a click of a button here at WA using the MOVE feature.

We also have a SiteDomains (domain registration platform) here at WA that simplifies the process. It is a breeze, it handles everything properly for SEO, and these are features included within the Premium membership.

You are in full control of your membership here at WA Melissa. You can go month to month or yearly, we don't believe in contracts and we are totally transparent about the cancellation process if you ever need to cancel (I can even help you out).
