Affiliate marketing allows me the freedom to choose. I love that part!! WA offers me the knowledge I need to get there. The community offers me the help when I am stuck. Does it get any better?

Before Today:
I was ready to quit and accept defeat. I had tried a few sites for learning but they were so expensive, complicated, and I still was still chasing my tail running in circles. :) Seemed like every turn was more money to learn. I like how WA is more simplified than most, up-front and honest and no up-sells!! Wealthy Affiliate is easy to maneuver and I can see myself not getting lost in the process, but growing instead. I can see myself here for the long haul.

Up-Date Dec/2016

After being here for a bit now the surprises have been wonderful and eye opening. I have learned SO MUCH and I found some awesome new friends. Help is only a shout out away and I have discovered that what CAN look like an MLM Market, is not always what it seems. Breaking things down and being more specific about your niche is very high on the list as well.

I have learned NOT to jump too far ahead of myself! OOPS! When I got the official boot from Amazon for no sales I had to rethink things.. I found that stepping back and concentrating on only two sites was best for now. I now have a micro niche site where I have my micro sites and one more that is more specific to Wealthy Affiliate and affiliate marketing. At least I hope they can be classified as micro. Each one is so different from the other.


To date my journey here is amazing. I am still training :) that never ends but also because I had to do the revamp on my websites/Blogs. I have completed three goals here at WA. Top 200 and going over 1000 in my network, and completing my first training at WA. Now I am reviewing because it is just too easy to forget.

I am so looking forward to 2017 and getting some referrals in place for WA and for my other affiliate business choices. I made a decision just a few months ago to join a few affiliate sites that are not part of ShareSale, Rakuten or the others. I am looking forward to growing with these just as I am with my WA.

I can't wait to see an email coming in to tell me my “Wealthy Affiliate Invitation” has been accepted. I think I will be over the moon excited.
There is nothing better than to know your efforts are paying off and you are doing something right, earning and helping others do the same. I like the helping others part the best. Something very special happens when you do that.



Wishing everyone here all the best in success and completing your goals in 2017!

Hi, Ms. Merry. Nice to meet you. I enjoyed reading your interesting bio and relate to your being kicked off of Amazon Affiliates. I had a useless website that I had no idea how to work on, and they had me sign up for Amazon. Of course I had no traffic or sales. But now I'm focused on writing content for my website and getting set up with other affiliate programs associated with my niche, which is ballroom dancing. Then once I have some sales and traffic, I'll reapply to Amazon if I need to.

Thanks for following me back. Welcome to my network. Best wishes for your continued success here at WA.

Oh Joseph, thank you so much. I am trying to see if I can manage a bit longer but it is a tiny bit difficult right now $$. I have a few more days left but today it does look like I will be leaving for a bit anyway. The honor has been all mine to encourage others like yourself. I have also been putting together a dropshipping storefront which requires a lot of time in the initial set-up. ( a little harder when you are technically challenged...lol) but it is coming along. I wish you all the best and more as you continue your awesome journey Joseph.

Hello Ms Marry,

My name isJoseph1 and the last lesson told me to comment to two people. And I seem to have what you had wrote about accepting defeat. This is why I'm writing to you. I'm in that same situation, just ready to throw in the towel. It was by luck or chance or this was supposed to happen. I googled another work from home sight yesterday and it turned out to be a fraud. Well while I was still reading on that one site a man asked another man a question and it happened to be the investigate for all the sites and he told out man why don't you go check out the site that I work for he said they're legit and they're just they're the biggest company in the world that does this so I just hit on the link and I came here. And so far it's been a great experience. Everyone is so polite and wonderful people.
And I'm supposed to make a comment to you ?
I don't know what kind of comment im suppose to make ?

Hello MsMarry,
I hope that you are enjoying your vacation.
Im finally at WA on my computer and its so much better than the phone,lol !!! Im totally enjoying this and its kinda strange in a way because I was never too fond of reading much when I was younger, but I would be much better at this today if i had. LOL
And now this typing, oh my gosh !!!!!
This has taken around thirty minutes to type, but its all good !!!
Im going to call this MULTY LEARNING instead of multy tasking.
I hope that you have a very wonderful evening along with t6he rest of your vacation.

Thanx, so much for your comments and suggestions and your invite to your PM, MsMerry.

I added a couple of banners to my side-widget (thanx to info on Kyle's course 2, lesson 8 training - that's about as far as I have gotten thus far :(.

My site is coming along but I know I still have a way to go before I, for one, am satisfied... It's a learning curve. I'll still have to do a bit of research on how to properly insert a footer for my disclosures.

I'm glad you find my Wealth & Romance pages interesting and that you feel they at least capture the reader's attention. As for any other sites I have set up, I always used Wix and got to know it pretty well. WordPress is somewhat more challenging (particularly since WA has some control over what you can or can't access).

Again, thanx for getting back to me. Your comments and suggestions are well received.

Wordpress, once you get the hang of it Sam, is pretty easy. I had trouble in the beginning as I am a visual learner and not being able to see what I was doing was confusing me for a few things. Now I know what to do and what I should not have done. And if you can do a Wix site you can do this.
Just go to plugins and add new and then put header footer in the search bar.
There are a few pieces of training here by members for it as well that might help. Glad you did the training on the widgets first. Kyle explains things very well.

SamMiCor Premium
Thanx, I'll try the plugins' suggestion. I'm sure though that somewhere in all the training I haven't gotten tp yet is the answer.

I'm going to focus ONLY on training today.

Your help has been priceless... 本当にありがとうございました。

That is wise too. It will be there, but it will come down to your theme and personal preferences too. You are fluent in Chinese? Or is that Japanese? :)

Japanese, but not quite fluent. 16 years living in Sunny Florida took a toll on my fluency. I have not trouble to communicate in the language, however. Actually, it has improved quite a bit since my return 2 years ago.

Are you connected to Google+? If so, my profile name is SamMi C. I just posted my first article... One from my WA site. Follow me if you are and I'll give you a follow right back.

I'm also, occasionally, going to be posting some of my pics for my Japan hometown, Yamagata - mostly flowers.

I look forward to seeing those. I have a friend who moved to Japan years ago to teach English thru her church. I always admired her courage and conviction. She is still there. :)
Reply
SamMiCor Premium
That's great, surely she fell in love with its culture, people, & foods (a really big thing in Japan - bigger even than lawyer commercials in the States). :)

I first came here in '74. This is my third trip to Japan. I'm actually retired now so any teaching I do, I do for the joy of helping kids learn the language & expose them to a different culture. I actually even have a class that I teach through exercise... I used to be heavy into martial arts (Kung-fu) in my younger years. They really enjoy it.

Here's a pic of my first two kids helping to decorate their classroom. They really enjoyed it, as did I.

By the way, I know of someone who has lived in my same town for many years now. She and her brother came here with their church. He left some time ago but she's still here. Her last name is Moore... Although there are many people here doing missionary work... Could it be the same person?

Beautiful Website Hung but where is your comment box? I looked on a couple of pages but could not find it. Your site is like a storefront so you don't really need comments there.

Welcome to WA! I am new also (it’s only been about 2 weeks) so I’m still learning. My theory is to keep the website simple, I’ve seen a lot of websites saturated with add-ons and information and it automatically makes me want to leave the website, in my opinion it also makes it look authentic.

I think no one wants to go on a website and read thousands of words, since everyone is always so busy. The only time they do that is for research or educational purposes which is not what my website is about.

So I try to keep things neat and simple and to the point! But that’s just my theory and design. Let me know what works for you! I’ve added you to my follows on WA. Hope things work out for you and best wishes on your success!

sorry to keep bothering you but I'm stuck and very frustrated I've asked for comments and I get the same response wich I have followed word for word course 3 lesson 4 trying to apply a link to my post and when you click on the link you get directed to a blank page. Stopped dead in my tracks. Thanks Brett
P.S I hope things are going well for you and your keeping your strength up.
Reply
MsMerry Premium
Brett, I posted a comment for you but I think I may see the problem. You have a what could be called a blogroll rather than a static page and then just short versions of each post appear. If you don't click on read more you get nothing...and maybe that is what they are doing. Your comment box was visible to me.
I am not sure what theme you are using but...this is not giving you readers much information.
Just in case I am wrong here you can go to your dashboard, and click on posts and all posts and from there for each post click quick edit and to the right you will see a small box and the word comment beside it. Make sure it has a check mark if you want comments. I was able to leave a comment as a test for you.
If I may offer some feedback, you need some more content on your posts and more pics.
Where are your links to purchase Brett? I didn't see any. Hopefully, I am helping. I know it can be frustrating and you may find that you need to go back and review a few lessons if you are not sure.

Thanks MsMerry, Installing links is my problem Ive been trying to add links to my post but getting a blank page when I go back and click on my link. Ask for help several times and I would get the same response every time. I watched the training video several times and I feel confident that I followed the steps given and I still get a blank page My theme is something I'm still have not decided on, suggestions are welcome. I can't tell you the frustration this has cossed. Again thank you for responding it is so very much appreciated and I hope all is well with you and It appears by the rankings that you are doing well. Good for you !
wishing you the best

Brett I am going to find you some other training that you can look at as well as Kyle's. Some of our members have done some awesome training in regards to links.
When you add a link to your page or post one of the best ways is to highlight the words and then up at the top of your content box you will see a paper clip. Click on that and the words you just highlighted should be there with a spot for you to enter your link.
You may have to click one more time to activate and then it will show up either as a different color or underlined or similar.
When putting your link into a picture, you will see that to the far right in your media when you click on a picture to insert.
That is a start I hope and I will try and find some themes for you. If you in your back office there is a place in the dashboard, probably under appearance and then you should see themes. Click on that as there are so many we can use. Just go thru and find something you like. That will get you started. More for U later...

Hopping back on for a quick second, had to come on over and read your about me. Hooray for scatter brained! (That rhymes ,)) but seriously, it only means we can do a 100 plus things at once, when our minds are on the right track. So since your Dec 2016 update, how are you personally doing with WA now? Do you have more than 2 sites now? I actually have the same problem with my niche being to broad. Really needing to narrow it but double guessing that because I kind of like broad because I can think of an array of subjects to write on verses to narrow where I am a master of none. Double guessing also lol.
Reply
MsMerry Premium
Tamara, you are so funny. I would for sure narrow it down. I did not have a 'chosen' niche, well I did sort of but it was one of the ones I stopped doing. It was called 'thisgalsgotclutter' and was for organizing. The two sites I have are for affiliate marketing and they are not producing...not easy to admit too, but it is the hardest niche to break into ( didn't know that at the time) money making etc.
I am actually looking into doing some drop shipping but once again I cannot decide on the best niche. I love fashion and vintage when it comes to home accessories inside and outside. I am worried I won't do well, DUH! of course, I am!! The other idea is baby anything and expectant Moms as that never goes out of style! LoL
So, I hope I didn't discourage you with my no money honey truth, but I think I made a few mistakes along the way so....
Reply
I gotcha, and no you haven't one bit. I was thinking about doing android os because I know that there is always going to be a market in tech. But I don't care for tech like most people. Yes, it is a tool but for me that's really as far as it goes. So again, with that niche I don't have a wide array of topics I could think about writing in that niche. Again with just sewing or crocheting, or baking, or finances and so on. I have a skill level in all but haven't mastered any. So that worries me. But, if there is a way to come up with a niche that you could write about all of these topics while integrating budgeting, the possibilities are endless (involved with coming up with topics to write about). I'm on the fence about deleting and starting a new but if I write about things like technology, cell phones, computers (even though I know that would bring in some bread as everyone needs help with the new and upcoming tech) it wouldn't be a passion or anything that I could see myself coming up with endless topics. But what if being a master of none could be a niche in and of itself? The possibilities are and would be endless, right? Idk, seriously don't know where to go on this yet. Plus, your advertising would be endless also. Like amazon. Heads spinning, I feel like I'm on the brink of something but what lol.
Reply
MsMerry Premium
You are awesome and you could just be on the brink. There are so many aren’t there.
Reply
To be honest, too many lol. In this situation it stinks to have mediocre skills in everything as I haven't yet mastered ANYTHING lol. So the world at first seemed huge but now it has gotten a bit smaller, sort-of-speak. :/ but I think I may have found my first niche. I was worried that the profitable ones was taken but if you was to look into the most profitable ones you too might find one that may peek your interest too. I read a few blogs about the most profitable niches and stumbled upon these 2 guys that help to find ppls niches. I'll get their names (I subscribed on youtube to them) and I'll come back here.

One of them was marketing working online, as everyone including myself, wants to do that. Skin care creams, as the treatments are very pricy, health, new age beliefs (something I am against so I won't be going there, but still throwing it out there), dating self help, fitness, dieting, materialism are to name a few. If you did want this to work for you, check into it, it might be of some help.

Think about it this way, WA is doing the marketing for online courses and working at home. That's very profitable with many things to work on. Use Google search to see who is asking what and bam, your new blog post ideas. Idk, that's the route im going to take, if you look into it, you might want to also. You can market someone else's buisness (and from what I'm seeing is still pretty profitable) but if you build your own and people like it, think of the cash flow that will come in. Buisness is probably something I could write about but not as much fun. Or maybe you and I could one day do what kyle and carson is doing and come together and build an online empire (on our own niche ideas, I really don't want to rip anyone off). You never know. ,)

Now, I do gotta say to anyone that comes across this comment, I do think (so far) WA is a great place to start. It has taught me alot and me personally, I learn quick, as I'm sure many others do. But this is the real deal. I'm trying to sell my skeptical husband on obtaining the premium account now so I to can go premium. I really do think and believe this is the real deal for those willing to put into their website, they'll get back so much more, if the appropriate routes are taken. Be smart and play smart. I'm not going the affiliate WA up sales either. So I won't be getting a commission on any kind of that lol. But it is what it is and that's my opinion. ,)

Income school, if you find the time, look em up. They may be of some help to us all. We have the world wide Web at our fingers, WA is what I ran across first, so that's where I'm sticking, but for more insight, I'd check em out. They even show you how much they make a month. They're both pretty transparent is what I'm trying to say. ;)

Love it all Tamara. Now I know we are at least related with our 'all over the map' ways of thinking! LoL.
Okay, so here is where I am at. I believe 100% that WA is the best place to learn how to do this and set up a website and an affiliate business ++. I am doing the 'make money Niche' using WA and then some other affiliate ideas that could fit many. I have two sites, one is for All affiliates and my second is for Ladies more than guys. I share what I know can work and what I know to be honest as well as what some members have shared with me. Like Hemp Oil. :) I just did a post and the gentlemen that share this is 85 years young and still working!!!!! Sharp as a whip too.
Anyway, would love for you to have a boo and leave a comment for me...what say yee you... the busy bee?
https://myaffiliatehomebiz.com/best-hemp-oil

And my other is yes, a business all my own, and that would cost less than $150.00 period! Oh Yeah!! You have to really think about that one. Tamara, I have been here for coming almost 2 years and I have made only a small fist full, okay less than that even. I have reached a pinnacle point where once again do I stay or do I go comes up for me. Looking forward to hearing from you. If it is easier, my email is merrybconner@gmail.com

High Ms. Merry,
I wanted to say, you seem fairly new to the WA life, after a couple of years you are still positive and that is great. I just started , a lot to learn and will stay positive , looking for the long term. What was your experience of starting you website / niche and making it generate any income?
Thanks, Michael

missed your comment and question, Michael. I apologize. I am usually alerted so I will blame it on the Olympics! :)
My biggest decisions were choosing the right niche and staying focused on the training. That is why I strongly encourage everyone to do that and to be patient. It is a process.
I love everything I have learned at WA but got off course a few times due to circumstances beyond my control so the money thing is not happening. Pretty hard to admit that, but I am honest so there you have it. I just will not quit on myself, not yet.

MsMerry, thank you for your kind words they keep me motivated and is much appreciated. I'm concerned that I'm not giving you the credit you've earned helping me. So please inform me when I don't give the you the credit that you deserve. that being said, If you have a chance would you read my last post that I finished writing yesterday. In the lesson under site content its said that the post should be a minimum of 1000 words. I could only come up with about 500 words. I'm not sure how to improve content ? Hope all is well with you and glad to see your back. Sorry for being long winded wish I could apply that to my post

I had looked for your posts from you off an on but hadn't seen you around as much. Glad to see you again.

I wish you much health and happiness MsMerry.

You are so sweet, Suehila. Thank you for noticing I was MIA. ( missing in action) I was in hosp. a total of 5+weeks and airlifted to a larger hosp. for more tests as well. It has been a tough one but finally, I am feeling more like myself and more determined to see some success in 2018.
Thank you for visiting my site. Which one did you see? I have two and will soon share a 3rd and a new venture in drop shipping.

Hi Thanks for the comments on Pinterest. I was interested to read of your experience with WA and other internet marketing, on your profile, and I agree that WA is the best place to be. I had a few setbacks recently but will follow you in persisting after reorganising and re-arranging. I wish you even greater success here Best Alan

That is so nice of you Alan. Thank you and I wish you the best too. Those setbacks that life throws at us can really get in the way of progress sometimes. I know that too well but jumped back in and here we go 2018. And it is nice to see you jumping over yours too. Following you here as well.

I wanted to meet you and thank you for your contribution to Course 1 Lesson 9. I have now attached Jaaxy and am really excited to keep pushing forward and start developing content for my first ever website!

I have been astounded by all the support from not only Kyle, but all the established WA members who are constantly willing and offering help. I read your thoughts on that in your bio also.

Thank you Merry, and it is a pleasure to make your acquaintance. I'll see you around the WA community - I'm not going anywhere!

Hi, Merry
Read your post and many of the messages. You are inspirational. It is strange how things just click for some people while the rest of us have to slug it out step-by-step. But as Jojo wrote, have to keep marching along, head up high, and be optimistic.
Much success to you in the new year.

Orion, you are not alone on the Amazon 'Boot' as I have been warned so I too have to re-do a few things as well. Everyone thinks Amazon is 'the way' to go but not always as we know. I decided to have a look at another way and actually challenged myself to see if it could be done. It was a fun and frustrating challenge. A lot of members at WA are doing this.
I would love to get an honest opinion so I know if I should go forward or just enjoy that I completed my own challenge.....Oh, that was to get this completed for 0 $ in less than 14 days. My site is just below and if you have time awesome! There is not a comment section as I have not set up a blog area yet so maybe you could PM me?

Read you profile was very refreshing. I love to read about someone who sees life and writes about their life as it happens, from the real perspective. You are so upbeat, yet realistic about the pitfalls you have encountered. But you seem to keep your head up and keep marching along. (short quip from the army song...I always liked that part....and the army goes marching along). I love your enthusiasm, realism, and I might venture a hint of perkiness. Keep it up darling, it is infectious!

Hi MsMerry. What a great name at the holidays. Well I am after some great advice this time. I have to finalize on my first niche and develop my website. It's time....pressure is on!!! LOL, I don't succumb to pressure, not of this kind anyhow. When it comes to business and most things I'm as cool customer. But let my family and the ex husband get involved and yikes. So here's where I am. My mind is like a clock that runs day and night, and the ideas area always churning. Do I do my research and go with what is hot right now in affiliate marketing, what is really converting? or do I pick something really close to my heart something I have deep love and interest for and see if it will work? Truth be told I'm in this to do two things....support myself by making hot money (I know it takes time) and do good for the things I believe in with the money I make. Should I go for taking care of my needs first and come back to goal number two? Thanks so much for taking the time to read and consider my concerns. Sincerely,, Jolynn
Reply
MsMerry Premium
Heh, Jolynn no problem at all. I would go for something close to your heart. You will be doing a lot of writing about this and it is much easier to do that when you love it. Then as soon as you feel comfortable enough to handle two sites, go ahead and start your other one.
When I got started I got a little excited, to say the least ( :) and did 4 sites! I know!! Anyway, I had to drop two and it cost me a lot of time here in learning more. Now I have two affiliate style sites. One for WA and one that is geared more to encourage women that they can do this.
I don't want that to happen to you. Focus on the training first and the money last. Go with your gut so to speak, Jolynn.
Hope this helps a bit.

I'm torn What I found on a google trends search was one that wow what the hell do a lot of people like? Really? But one thing that is almost always at 100 % always, is cosmetics, yes a bit broad, I did comparison after comparison to see is I could narrow that, but nope, just plain old cosmetics. I'm certain a person could focus their own site, but still make up is awesome, you could have soo much fun with it. And if you throw in some of the high end items....well more room to earn. But my first intuition was to do a site about Pets and Vets Something like that. Giving back to the pets that give so much to the people who need them. Good food, and treats, Beds, and just taking great care of therm. Maybe focusing a human pet success story on the site every month and eventually as it grows do some type of donation monthly to a vet or disable other in need of a support dog, help making that happen. ???
Reply
MsMerry Premium
From what I found out with the drop shipping platform it is the Pets! Cosmetics is hard and everywhere but what they did say was really popular is eyelashes! Anything Eye Lashes. So false ones, stick on's etc.
I really really like your Pet and Vet idea. And the human-pet success story is so unique! Kudos!! Also, many sites that really do well do just that...set up a donation type of thing so their potential customers see you really care.
Perfect.............now Just Do It, Girlfriend!!

Hi,
I feel stuck in lesson No. 3. I have created an email and have
incorporated it into my website. However, not sure which email to forward to. Use personal email or create another email??
After adding theme and pages with content, I think I hit publish but still unable to see or view my website with these changes.
Anyway, how can I request for feedback if the site is not visible even to me.
Reply
MsMerry Premium
Sorry for the delay to your question. I am in the hospital after an emergency. I forwarded mine to my personal bit i is your choice.
You chose your theme, did you name each page, like say Reviews, About me, etc. and then click save? Nothing will show up until you put in the content.

Hopefully, this helps a bit. always a bit confusing in the beginning.

with all the help you have given me I want to be honest with you. My body is making it difficult for me but I'm determined to follow this through . I feel very frustrated at the moment .

Can you suggest something I could read that might clear things up for me. Sorry to dump all this on you but I'm very frustrated and do not want to give up &
I don't have much hair left. Thanks again

MsMerry Premium
Oh, Brett, I am so sorry. One for not seeing this sooner and the other because of your health. I so admire you for this challenge you are taking on here. Let me see if I can help you with Grammarly a bit.
#1. When you download Grammarly to your computer it should be working behind the scenes so to speak, anywhere you are on your computer. Like when you are doing a post. It will pick up spelling and Grammar mistakes. Did you sign up for their news letter? It is helpful. I use the free version so I think you have a lot more than I do as to make it work.
#2. Adding Affiliate links is not that hard if you have them saved in one spot, like a word document. Then when you want to put a link into your content you can go there and copy and paste.
Are you wanting your affiliate links to go into say like this example:
"go here today for the best story" You would highlight these words and then click on the link icon in your content area and copy the link into that box.
Let me know if any of this made any sense and if not I will come up with a different and easier plan.
P.S.
If your Grammarly is not picking up mistakes in your WordPress back office you need to reach out to their support desk and ask for help. My Grammarly just corrected me because I didn't put WordPress in capitals. Any mistake comes up with a red line under it. If you hover your mouse over the word the correct spelling or suggestion comes up in a drop down box.

Hi Merry, hope all is well and hoping you could assist me with something. I am on Course 2, Lesson 4, and finished watching the video regarding content. The first task we are assigned, 'Create a New Keyword Rich Post & Publish,' has me confused. Are we suppose to create a post (using a rich keyword) under one of the pages we already created on our website? In other words, the pages I created on my website are the About Me Page, Privacy Policy and three others associated with my niche. Any help you can give me would appreciated. Thank you!

Hi, Luke. Yes, you are on the right track. You want to create a post that is keyword specific and then one of the pages for your niche. You could even do it as a review if you wanted to. Whichever you 're most comfortable with. May I ask why you chose to do 3 pages for your niche? Is one a review page?

Thanks Merry. Think I may have confused you with my question. I didn't create three pages for my niche, I was talking about the menu items at the top of my site. I have my About Me Page, Private Policy Page, Review, Brands and Nutrition pages (topics) at the top of my page. Hope this helps.

Brett you do want me to be honest with you, correct? Your information is good Brett, and spelling is fine but you have one post almost all in capital letters which is not a good thing.

When I clicked on reviews in your menu there was nothing there. Your posts should be under reviews and your homepage should be an introduction to what you will be sharing on your site.

And the big wonderful bear had me so distracted. Pictures and Headers like that should be a closer fit to your niche. Do you see what I am saying? And do you know how to change it?
Your about me page is good other than 1/2 is in caps. You may not have noticed the caps.
Over all info is good, spelling is fine :) and the photos are appropriate ( other than my bear) At the top of the pages or posts, not sure what you have, it says Uncategorized. You probably should remove that if possible too.
you have an amazing Niche Brett. I am going to guess you are a visual learner and it is hard when you can't see some things as you do them.
There is so much that goes into these sites, and I have to tell you that I sure had trouble at first. Just finding my way around in WordPress and our dashboard was huge.
I hope it is okay for me to be so honest Brett. I know I would want that. All the best and if you need anything more just shout.

Once you have downloaded Grammarly to your computer it alerts you to mistakes with a red line. You then can hover over the underlined word or click on it and you will see the suggested change or correction.
Yes, it is a good niche Brett just a bit of work to do. But for someone so new to the Internet and computer you are doing GREAT! ( you would only do that < the Caps when you want to shout something. You need to also get a plugin for SEO which will totally help you as well.
In your dashboard go to plugins and click on add new. Then in the search bar type in SEO. You should see Yoast or All In One. I started with the all in one then went to Yoast which I used for a long time. I now use Squirrly which is awesome but as a newbie to all this, go with one of the other two. Anyway, they will come up when you do the search, click on one and download and activate.
It is an amazing tool to have as SEO and Keywords are huge. Hope this helps some more.

A couple months ago - my ranking was somewhere south of 80K. Realizing that the project I was on would run out in June 2018 - decided to take another look at WA. Started with taking training, started getting involved contributing wherever I could help - even applying what I do to make some WA training videos.

Hi MsMerry, I am on lesson level 2. Can you explain me when I should get affiliate program links to my website, I think it's not easy to be approved right? And also I'm not sure what to write about content cos I don't have product. My niche is about weight loss.
Reply
MsMerry Premium
Hi, Suzy. You might want to be sure you have your site up and running and like you said some content first. You have so many products to choose from. Recipe books, +++ I would start writing about your own experience if you have one or a friend's. Share some things that have worked or that you know work. You can still get set up like at ClickBank for digital ( e-books) Amazon is your next I would think unless you have a specific product you can suggest.
Getting approved depending on where is the key. You sign up at ShareASale and some of the others before actually applying for specific affiliate links. ShareASale and ClickBank are known as Partner programs that host many programs you can join. There are others and you will see those as you move along in the training. Don't get ahead of that tho'. Hope this helps a bit.

Go to the bottom and click save and that is all you need.

Hi Merry, I have only been on WA for less than a month and have been training, reading, and learning. I am determined to make this work. decided on a niche and began researching it for my web site. And there it is, the amazing, unbeatable competition!! ugh

I knew they were there, but these guys are great, I am feeling very small as I know little to nothing about creating a web page. Although learning more every day. I wish I could partner up with someone. just don't know if I can do this alone. Should I change my niche again, or just push through and do this thing regardless of the competition and give it my best shot?
Reply
MsMerry Premium
Hi Maureen. Well I think you have a few options. One, you haven't been here too long so don't short change what you have learned and will still learn about building a website. If you are passionate about your niche, and you know you can give good content then I say go for it. Sometimes all we need is someone to encourage us to keep going. That is what I hope I can offer you.
If it makes you feel any better, I have been here a year, and I am still learning!! It just never stops and that is fun too....somedays anyway.
The other thing to do is be an affiliate of WA and do the BootCamp training. Then if you feel ready to tackle your chosen niche again you can.
I hope this helps a tiny bit. I can sure relate to where you are hand how you are feeling. Just shout anytime you need anything, okay?

Healing most diseases which is associated with pain remotely.
Only the full address of the patient is needed for this remote healing.

Reaching out to heal maximum people suffering from pain takes priority.

Full amount paid shall be refunded, if healing not happened or customer not happy without asking any question.

Kidney problems, heart problems, blood vessel blocks,cancer, arthritis, spondylosis etc may cure over a period of one months. Gall bladder stones, kidney stones, headaches, shoulder pain, neck pain, hand pain, leg pain and back bone pain etc.may cure within 2 days.

Sitting anywhere in the world, god willing, healing can happen to anybody, anywhere in the world ( remote healing) just by having their address. Therefore area or place is not a problem.
You need not believe in this healing for the healing to work.

Thank U very much for your time, encouraging attitude and words.

Pls note that diabetes and blood pressure never responded to my energy healing. As both are without pain I am not able to access and convert those dumb energies.
Take it from me please, energy medicine is the real science and Energy medicine is the future.

Request u all to get as many people possible suffering from diseases associated with pain and they shall be healed distantly by me free of cost up to the end of September 2017. By the grace of god, hopefully all diseases associated with pain shall be cured by distant healing and let this become proof of energy healing.

Hi, Jay's last course from his 4 courses on creating a web site will be held this Friday. Last week he discussed creating a logo to help brand your web site and had also mentioned football snack helmet the best template for all his web site needs. Is there a way to kind of know which of the 2,400 WA web site templates offered are good for inserting a logo at the top of the web site or does it not matter which template, as they all provide that web space for pasting in a logo to help brand a web site?

What's good: 1) the "Welcome To" section is a good idea to include and 2) your picture is also well-placed and a good idea to include. What I think in not good: 1) overall, there is far too much "white space" to my eyes and your text as well seems "scattered" and not condensed enough, 2) I don't agree with how large whatever font(s) you chose looks, 3) your title underneath the graphic doesn't need the word Simply in "Keeping It Simply Simple" - delete the word simply, it isn't needed and is redundant.

Now, on to some feedback on your second site, https://girlbossmrketingco.com. Overall, I think it is a much better effort on your part. The different elements are much more condensed and "tighter." What's good: 1) the two images at the top look very professional and appropriate, 2) allowing for comments is always a good idea, so nice job on including some comments and the comment box. What I didn't think helps: 1) the color scheme seemed overdone to me - too much pink and violet used, 2) you used a direct quotation without properly citing the author's name, and 3) the choice to include affiliate marketing and Karat bars "dilutes" and confuses the purpose or theme of the site. What are you specifically trying to promote with your site? One or the other, Merry?

In conclusion, keep in mind that I did my best to give you my personal opinions or likes/dislikes about your sites. You can agree with me or not - and that is fine. I will send you a message as soon as I can pointing you to sites that have stood the test of time, are highly profitable, very popular, and highly ranked. Until then, take good care of yourself.

Very much appreciated Craig. I included both KaratBars and WA as well as Stella & Dot as they are all affiliate marketing sites and I understand a bit better what I did that could be done better. Oh Crap on the quote! oops :)
my affiliate home biz site is something I just changed to make it simpler and it seems that my scattered text could have something to do with that. Not sure. The Simply Simple is just me having fun with words but I can see your point.
Okay, now the white space.........shoot, I need to look at that again as I am not fond of too much white space.
Thanks Craig.
