About MinaKim
Joined July 2018
Hi Mina here! I am in search of how I can make an additional income and came across with online marketing / affiliate marketing last year, and I did my research since then. But I wasn't able to really "dig" information back then, because of my 9-5 sometimes 9-7 work.
Just these few months I started do my research again, this time more focused and determine. That's the time I found Wealthy Affiliate.
I browsed WA homepage first, looks quite different from the others (though I haven't been to one), and obviously there's a community which made me feel relieved since I am a newbie.
So... said to myself... "Okay I'll give it a try and see how it goes." =)

Hello MIna 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 to the training.
If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 440+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me PM anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.
Robert

No probs Mina and if/when you read my blogs make sure you choose the ones that will help you in conjunction with whatever training you are currently taking.

Also you may not be aware of this but it’s a good idea (only if you are interested in your rank within WA) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.

Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing else.

But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.
Enjoy your Saturday.

Hi Mina

Am glad the community has made you feel welcome!

Have met so many nice and helpful people here on my journey since I started last year on this journey.

Like you, I also work 8 hours a day which sometimes makes it difficult to stay focused on the task.

Try just creating one website which you are truly passionate about and begin there!

Wishing you a successful year here in WA.

Hello and welcome to WA Premium. I recently joined myself, and I'm so glad that I did. The information available is never ending!! And the training is Incredible!!

Begin with "Getting Started." Follow that training! I can not stress this enough. Do not skip around. Do them in the order in which they are. And go at your pace. It is not a race. You'll find you can't wait to learn more in the following days. I did.

There were a few lessons that I had to watch twice. If that's what you have to do, do it!

And soon you will have yourself an awesome website. Amazing direction, and the tools that you need to succeed in whatever it is you want to do!

Be awesome!! Be amazing!!! And succeed!!

Congratulation on upgrading to Premium! You have begun a journey that will change your life.

Just remember, life is filled with situations where we are faced with a ‘fight or flight’ decision. If you run, you’ll have to face the same fight again. You want to change your life? You have to fight for it. But take heart – you are in good company! Don't give up!

Feel free to follow me and if you have any questions, I will be happy to either answer them or direct you to someone who can.

Always remember: the only stupid question is the one that you don’t ask

You are welcome. Just remember: I felt overwhelmed at first too! Information overload! Take your time. Ignore all the stuff you don't understand yet, just concentrate on the training and things will come into focus.

Thanks.. I am actually done with my first blog (one of the requirements) but can't seem to publish it.
I guess I need to log out and refresh first.
Thanks Armani

Yw! I have a question to ask when publishing. Are you using Gutenberg as one of your plugins? If so, a logout/refresh is not needed. However, you do have to click on the Publish button twice. I hope this helps.

@ArmaniTol Am I using Gutenburg? nope.
I was actually talking about the blog within the WA.
But it was resolved right after I logged out and refresh my browser.
Thanks for the reply anyway =)

Have a good one!

Ah, I see. When you mention that word, publish, I automatically associate publish and blog in relation to posting a website article. Oh, silly me. Thanks for the clarification, and you have a good one as well.

Hey Mina,

It's me Jerry here again. I want to drop by personally because I just saw you updated your profile.

I'm really excited for you as you've found this awesome community.

Personally, I joined WA when I was 18. I'm now 21 and earning 4-figure monthly passive income, all thanks for Wealthy Affiliate.

So, you've definitely come to the right place to learn and earn from affiliate marketing.

I'm sure you can turn your passion into a thriving online business with the help of Wealthy Affiliate. From there, you can build your own passive income streams.

I must say building passive income stream is not easy though. A lot of time and hard work are involved. But all I could say is that the reward and benefits are worth the hustle.

For now, follow closely with the training here: You'll get more detailed guidance on how to define your niche and start building your website.

Just to remind you that you're not alone here. The whole community and myself is here to help. Feel free to ask whenever you need.

I wish you all the best and let's keep in touch, alright?

Cheers

Jerry

Hey Mina,

I forgot to mention the other day that I am going to still be offering you my awesome bonuses if you join within the next 4 days.

Here are the bonuses that you are going to be getting:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)
(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there. Where else can you access the CEO of the company for help?
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well Mina and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)

Oh... You've just given me reason to stay! Thank you so much Kyle.
That's what I need. Support.
To be honest a beginner can get the idea of "How to start....." (blogging, affiliate mktg, etc) but the web is full of information---
It is so overwhelming that you don't know WHERE to start.

Thank you so much...

Kyle Premium
Well you definitely have lots of support here every step of the way. Not to mention the most comprehensive, advanced and cost efficient platform in the industry for creating, growing and managing a business online.

The web is full of misinformation and vultures trying to take your money. We have been fighting against this for many years now and now that you have found WA, you can stop looking.

Here we are, 10 days into your experience at WA. :)

I hope things are going well Mina! I want to remind you of one thing, your hard work and dedication IS going to pay off. Keep working through the training, communicating within the community, and of course, ask for help when you need it.

Just heading out for a bit here, but do leave me a message if you need a hand with anything. You should have Premium communication back for an additional 7 days now, so hit me up when you get a chance Mina!

Hi Kyle!

Thanks for monitoring me. =)
I am still on a "digging" part-- researching about Affiliate Marketing
that's why I came across with one of your members.

But as you know, internet will overload you with informationa that will cause you to lose focus.

Anyhow, since I am already here... I better try it, right?

Hope there will be someone to ask if I need to.

Thanks again

Kyle Premium
Yes, the internet is full of information and a lot of it outdated or misleading.

I have spent some time breaking down the process in the most simplistic way possible. Success online is at the core a 4 step process and I have broken them down within this video: Broken, down, the process looks like this:

Step 1: Choose your niche
Step 2: Build your website/content
Step 3: Get rankings in search engines (leads to traffic)
Step 4: Monetize your traffic (the make money part, through affiliate programs, etc!)

This applies in absolutely every niche and as you work through the training here at WA, you are going to be walked through this exact process. This is fundamental for ANY success online.

If you have any further questions let me know Mina. :)
