Hey everyone! Names Jaylin but you can just call me J for short if you like.

I'm completely new too affiliate marketing and making money online in general, but I've actually been paying attention to Wealthy Affiliate for about a year now. I discovered it through another link somewhere else about a year ago and got curious. Doing more research here I decided this was something I wanted to try. But I wasn't ready at the time so I waited for a while, but now things in my life have gotten a lot crazier. I'm doing this for a multitude of reasons.

1. To help my family out financially and contribute my share.
2. I've got little else to do and I need a source of income of my own.
3. The educational opportunities presented here were just too good to pass up.
4. The ability to make money so I can do more things I want and start living my life the way I want too.

Aside from my problems though, I'm actually quite passionate about a number of things.

1. If you couldn't tell from my profile picture, I love video games.
2. Animation is something I've always loved and had a strong fascination in.
3. Television. No not just plopping my but on the couch and watching, but everything that goes into its' production as well. This also extends too
4. Film.
5. Music. Not only do I make it every now and then (only have four songs though) but I'm also very emotionally connected to the music I listen too. It actually does have a strong affect on my emotional state.
6. Technology and all of its' innovations, especially when it comes to nanotechnology and robotics!! I get excited just from thinking about it.
7. Mental Health and psychology. Being one who suffers and has to deal with Mental Illness myself, naturally I read up a lot on the subject and it's something I like to talk and help others with.
8. Sex. Specifically Sexology. I know this already sounds crazy to you guys, but I really love studying the mindset behind human sexuality and how people express it in a multitude of ways including in their relationships and kinks.
9. Culture and alternate lifestyles that may be unusual and perhaps socially taboo. Hence social issues are something that is very important to me as well particularly when it applies to minority groups.

I look forward to interacting with this community. I don't really know anyone yet, but you all seem like great people. I'm hoping that with everyone's help I'll be able to eventually have a successful business. Now I don't expect to start making money right away, but it would be great to be a millionaire ha ha. But in all seriousness I know this isn't going to be easy and I'm willing to put forth the effort I need to succeed at affiliate marketing and my life.

Nice to meet everybody!!

Hi J, How are you doing here?
Reply
Nanowave Premium
Hi, Kn297. Not to well I don't think. I've been here about 3 months or so, and while I have been ranked in google, and have a site trust of 20%, I haven't earned anything yet and don't really have any traffic either. On top of all of that, I'm getting EXTREMELY frustrated with google because I can't for the life of me get AdSense, analysis, webmaster, or any google program to work for me! I can't even verify my site. I've tried contacting google but that doesn't work either.

I'm not doing too well overall.
Reply
kn297 Premium
Why can't you verify your site ownership with Google? Please read this post to see how to do it: http://bit.ly/2dN31lD

Google Adsense will take sometimes because you will need lots of content for your site because you can apply with them. Other than that, google Webmaster, analytics should be working. PM me if you have any question.
Reply
Nanowave Premium
I've already applied and been accepted by them already I just can't get any of them to work. I keep trying to verify it, but it either ask me to do something I can't do (add this link to your site) or to verify it but then it keeps coming up with error messages or still can't detect my site. I have no idea why.

Did you install All in one SEO plugin to your site?

Nanowave Premium
Yes I have
Reply
kn297 Premium
Well then follow the instruction and you should be able to verify your site ownership. Don't rush thing. Be patient and make sure that you read and watch everything. Don't skip any step.
Reply
Nanowave Premium
I haven't skipped anything. Some steps aren't possible for me to do, and others still result in nothing working. A lot of the time the instructions feel like they are for a different version of WordPress. For example

1. Download this HTML verification file. [google1b49c04054a41ece.html]
2. Upload the file to http://gametechmotherload.com/
3. Confirm successful upload by visiting http://gametechmotherload.com/google1b49c04054a41ece.html in your browser.
4. Click Verify below.
To stay verified, don't remove the HTML file, even after verification succeeds.

So I downloaded the file, but how do I upload it to my site? I even visit the link and it just comes up as a blank page and I can't verify it.
Reply
kn297 Premium
This is why I said you need to read things carefully. You don't have to download anything.

Choose “Alternate methods” tab and select HTML tag. Google will give you a code as follow. You just need to copy the part between"....."

Go back to all in one SEO and paste it in Webmaster Verification.

Then go back to Google webmaster and hit verify.

Oh I see. Yes that's a picture I took myself and a very poor one at that. It's actually my room with all my consoles in place, but it's too poorly lit to tell I'll admit. At some point when I have the time, space and lighting, I'm going to retake it or take something better. Thanks.

Hello Jaylin and welcome to wealthy affiliate.
You have been here about a month now so have probably realised by now that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
Can I suggest you browse some of the 200+ blogs I have published within WA.
Thank you for the follow as well and I will follow you.
Remember, if you get stuck you ask ok.
Enjoy your day.

Thanks. It's very tough being here and doing this. I like it don't get me wrong, but sometimes I get information overload and my confidence can take a huge dive but I keep pushing hoping to achieve success. Hopefully one day, possibly months from now it will begin to pay off and much later it may be a living, and much later than that something much bigger.

Hello Jaylin
Yes it can be tough but don't get overwhelmed by it all because then you will surely start to make mistakes and if you're new to marketing online you wont even know you're making those mistakes.
You get stuck, you ask questions and you ask again and again.
When all else fails then you come to me lol.
Seriously. A lot of the 'Help' you get from other members is so much crap because they don't really know any more than you do but they believe they're helping and that's ok but real help you will only get from people such as myself who have been around the block a couple of times.

Enjoy your Monday.
Robert

Hey Jaylin, I just wanted to check in and see if had a chance to start exploring Wealthy Affiliate. If you haven't started the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course - that's the best place to start. It'll take you through the whole process of how to start your website and how the making money stuff works.

Click the green"Get Started Here" button on the left.

PS. One thing people get stuck on a lot is picking a topic or "niche" for their website. If you are having trouble thinking of something to make your website about let me know and we can figure it out together.

PSS. Just about every new member wants to see some success stories! There are too many to list, but here are a few of my favorites:

nathaniell Premium
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. I'm at the process of creating my website now. I know I want to do something video game related, but I looked at your list and I'm just not quite sure what niche I should do to make a living.
vintage console repair- something I don't know anything about
rare NES and SNES game reviews- Well I suppose I could emulate some and try them out myself
creating computer game mods- I don't know how to do that
genre game reviews (racing, horror, indie)- if I had more money to buy more I could see myself doing this
gaming chair reviews- I don't have the money to try this
gamer gear reviews- I don't have the money to try gaming gear
computer gaming headset reviews- Don't have the money
easter eggs- I could look them up I suppose
arcade games and MAME
Minecraft tutorials- Don't play
MMO (can also be broken down further)
DOTA
WOW
COD
These games I don't really play
how to start a letsplay channel on YouTube- I don't have a letsplay channel so how would I know?
virtual reality- Ideas but no experiennce
portable gaming consoles
browser based games
games where you can make money
family friendly video games
video games for kids under [age of your choice]
imported video games
rare video games

So I was wondering if someone could look at my list of interest and help me decide on a niche within that broader category to start a profitable business around? Please and Thank You!


I suppose I should also add that when it came to affiliate programs for video games I found this video game pay my bills .com
But I don't know if I can do that, because I'm not a lets player let alone a well known one.

Finding a good niche seems like a tough task, but it's actually pretty easy. Actually, ANY niche can make money, so you definitely should not worry if your niche is profitable or not. As far as competition goes, that's also something to not worry about. If there's competition, it just means people are making money. That means you can make some too! As time progresses, new products come out, new technology is introduced, new ideas formed, and each change is an opportunity for "the new kid" to get a foothold and overtake established websites.

So the big question is not "what" is going to make money, but "what do you want to make money with?"

In other words, what are your own interests?
What do you think would be interesting to research and write about?
What do you want to help people with?

A good sentence to help you decide your niche is "I want to help people _____"

Helping people is the best way to make money in any business. Everyone wins. Short of that, pick something that you just find interesting.

There are literally thousands of affiliate programs, products, and ways to make money in any niche or industry if you get creative. All of that will come into focus in Level 3 of your training, so for now, we just need to look at getting your topic chosen, your website built, and then start creating awesome content for your business!

If you only play games casually, then maybe this is not the niche for you though. It just depends on what you want to spend time researching and writing about!

I actually created my website last night. A techforgamers site. I want to help people choose the gaming devices best for them. Though due to my lack of money I can't buy a lot of them myself, I got some advice on what to do about that.

Curious question Nathaniell. Out of all of my passionate interest I mentioned in my profile, which one do you think would be best for my first website?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Well, they are all very broad topics, so I think you'd need to pick a more narrow subject within one of those interests. For example, video games. I broke it down here: Maybe you'll see a topic you're interested in within that post, or at least see how I broke it down, then apply that to your other interests.

Any topic can make money as long as you have the passion and patience to write about it and share knowledge with other people interested in the same topic.

Thanks Nat, is it okay with you if I see one of your website for an example of how this all works? I'm completely new here and it's true I play games fairly casually.
