Good afternoon to you Mary, my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. I suggest you first start from the Get Started Here [top left green box], you will learn how to select your niche, build a niche website and learn keyword research. Everything else is built on these three principles. Once you learn the basics you will be able to do anything you wish.
I look forward to working with you and wish you much pleasure and prosperity in your journey.

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 Wendy: I was going thru Kyle's videos yesterday and finished the website. I picked Weightloss plans as the niche. What do you think of that ? I got the idea when Kyle gave the idea of Weight loss for Men and I intended it for bariatric weight loss people but had to be careful about choosing name for the site so I ended up with this title. Check it out and let me k now what you you think please ? It's weightlossplan.siterubix.com/wp
wendyjane Premium
So your site is about weight loss for bariatric patients? Because if so, I think that is a great start. It is specific enough since you are focusing on a particular type of weight loss but still broad enough to give you tons to talk about.
Mkocher09 Premium
Thank you !

Hello Mary and welcome to wealthy affiliate.
Since you joined you will have come to realise that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you haven't already been doing so, can I suggest you browse some of the 200+ blogs I have published within WA.
Thank you for the follow anyway and I will follow you as well.
If you get stuck you ask ok.
Enjoy your day.

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my websites. My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live a couple of months ago and the one on sleep apnea has been up for almost five months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Mary,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link on the right (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

Mrs. Kocher,

I see you decided to, what I like to call "Take the Leap" as well. First I would like to say Congratulations. Not only on taking the first step towards a better career opportunity, but also the first step at a better life. Not only are you about to embark on a major learning and building adventure. You also get to share this experience with many like minded people like yourself, on that very same adventure. I myself am no expert, but if there is anything I can do to help you along the way, please don't hesitate to ask. I wish you all the best in your future here at Wealthy affiliate.

Best Wishes,

Thanks Kyle. I was away over the week end so playing catch up now. Trying to master word press. I wrote a blog article and published it. Then over the week end I tried to update the post by adding a picture and I get garbage - probably part of the HTML string on my screen and no picture ?
Kyle Premium
You won't master wordpress overnight, but you will definitely get the hang of it (often times through trial and error lol).

There are many ways in which you can find and add images to your website. I have outlined this within a video walk-through that I created on images. This is very thorough and will give you a lot of great ideas as to how you can find and incorporate images on your website. Also, do know that if you are an affiliate of Amazon you can use any of the images (product) from their website on your website, which opens you up to an image bank of MILLIONS of images.

There are also other CC0 sites out there that you can leverage. These are free public domain images to use how you wish.


This should get you going!

Wendy I was wondering what you know about Cyber Digital Sales business which promotes advertising for the Amazon Affiliate accounts but I seriously wonder about the expenses incurred how legit this is ? If this is a legit Amazon Affiliate account they set me up wit, Amazon should be able to recognize my business name wouldn't you think ? I still have my doubts about that affiliate account. Amazon seems to be legit but not sure about Cyber Digital Sales?
wendyjane Premium
I have never heard of the company but I found their website and it seems a little sketchy. How did you hear about them, did they call you? I can tell you that there are tons of shady/scam companies out there that will contact you and claim to be a part of Amazon and say that they'll help you become an affiliate for them by setting you up with a website and getting you advertising in Google. None of these companies are actually associated with Amazon in any way though, so you have to be careful. The Amazon program by itself is completely legitimate (and free) but I'd stay away from companies like this.
