About Mland444
Joined January 2018
I am a 27 year old college student living in the Pacific Northwest. I am finishing my degree this year in business management and entrepreneurship. My interests include art, music, travel, culture, education and more. I stumbled upon affiliate marketing very recently and had absolutely no idea about it before now but I have always dabbled with marketing in one aspect or another for the past 9 years now. Primarily I used to be a caregiver and a nursing assistant but last year I quit doing that primarily due to burn out after 7 years and endless cycles of poverty. I am mostly interested in making a living from marketing now and finishing my degree. The past 6 months I helped an independent film company with their marketing and ended up getting a lot of experience with design, which is not why they hired me. The project didn't work out due to lack of proper leadership, focus and direction. I wanted to do marketing for them but the leader of it all wanted to focus purely on certain things that were not fruitful at the end of the day and here I am ! I am still trying my best to get into this marketing online lane and it has been rough, that is for sure! If I can get through what I have gone through the past 9 years with work and other things that I have done then I am confident that I can do this !

It has been so long since I have done anything with my website on here and I never added links from my Amazon affiliate account so Amazon shut down my account because I didn't even make a single penny in sales as a result. I'm scared now to begin again, lol - it sounds silly but can I just reactivate my account on Amazon ? I am afraid to check because I have heard through articles on here that Amazon can be tough to work with sometimes and I don't know if they will let me be an affiliate now.... can someone help me with this? I would really like to finish the training now and start monetizing my site that I have been paying for - for months ....

Just reapply...you'll have the 90 days to get the sales again, etc. I was shut down because they didn't like my disclaimer but I got it all figured out:

There's nothing to be afraid of, so don't worry. Yes, when you let your site go stagnant and don't add affiliate links it's going to be impossible to earn a penny. But you know that now. So get back on that horse and start applying this training :) It delivers. Go through the process again and this time be consistent with content creation, 2-3 posts per week, and through that consistency you'll start building that traffic. Traffic is revenue! That's the key to success :)

Malee,
Amazon will take you back as an affiliate - you might want
to go and take all the old links out before starting to build
your website out again more this will save you time once
approved with them again and they are fairly fast with the
approvals :)

I would just reapply to any affiliate programs that you lost while your site was stagnant.

I have made a lot of progress here at WA. I am almost through with course #2 and I have learned so much and I have written more than I thought I would by this point! I have enjoyed getting to know the community better. I was hoping to finish all the courses by now but I have to fly across country in 4 days and I find myself running out of time. I will not be able to resume studies here until April 16th or later that week. Anyways, I am just posting this so people don't think that I just left the platform !

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! :)

Yes I am sitting here this afternoon racking my brain about the niche... this is going to be the hardest thing for me with WA... I have experience with marketing, website building and more ... but this whole niche thing is throwing me for a loop !

I don't know. I have many interests and I also thought what about socks or underwear ? I know that sounds silly but both of those things I and so many people need all the time... but even that is too general I guess? Also I am interested in art big time and I found a website called craftsy that is an affiliate program and I could promote painting lessons and build a website all about "how to" that would direct people to that... and then I thought about different things on Amazon but I heard mixed reviews about Amazon... some people make $10,000 a month from working with amazon only and then I have seen blog posts recently about how if you do one thing wrong with their affiliate program then they will completely take you down.... I am just stumped !

You know what. I have put a lot of thought into this and I think I want to start off with women's running shoes. Under armour has an affiliate program that I want to try. I tried Nike but they don't do affiliate programs in the US.

I love running and I find that having a good pair of running shoes is vital! What are your thoughts?

Sure, no problem. That sounds like a good direction for you and that's sounds like something that you are truly passionate and interested in. There're many affiliate programs that you are going to be able to leverage within this particular niche.

I just joined WA and I have to clear the air for myself because I will not be participating that much in WA even though I have a premium account- until the first week of March. It's a long back story but in 1 week I am going to be going overseas for 3 weeks. I help a school overseas and this will be my second time going there. I joined WA for many reasons and even though I will not be on here much nor will I complete my training until March- I am still very excited and cannot wait to start fully participating with this community and becoming a successful Affiliate!

Hello!

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.

One tip though… be 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.

~Mark
