I started internet marketing while living in China. The idea was that I could make American money while in China, and live like a King. I could make money in different time zones and, and essentially have cash flow 24/7. I didn't realize then how well it would work.

There's still a lot I don't know about internet marketing, but I can say that I've achieved all the goals I set, and have surpassed them way beyond what I thought possible. I of course have new goals now. I am now living in the US and doing internet marketing full time.

I did not imagine that you had some difficulties too. Here in Venezuela things have become very ugly and in reality it has been hard for me to start here because of lack of time. I gave with your blog when I was looking for affiliate market information I really love what you transmit and how you write. I will try to keep going despite the difficulties.

Hi Nathaniell,

Thanks for keeping tabs on me. I have been working on my site and following the training. My heart is not in it presently. I think it is worthwhile me leaving the platform whilst I get my health fixed up - I've run into a few problems which leave me exhausted. Docs say the treatment will be 6 months or more before we know what the future is. Anyway, can you advise how to cease my membership please? I have saved the work I've done on my site (i.e. all draft blogs and posts) for my hopeful future reference! Also can you advise how I may get a refund on my new domain name as well please?

cheers

Sorry to see you go Cherie!

Click on your profile picture, then "Account Settings", then "Membership". You will see the Cancel Billing Link under your avatar and details.

The website content will be saved for six months, but it will not be live on the internet. If you want to keep your website live and accessible, you'll need to choose a different host company, and move your website there.

For the domains, there are no refunds. The registration will expire after 1 year, and then not renew. This is the same for all domain registration companies.

If you do decide to come back within six months, SiteSupport can get your website up and running again, and you can keep building your business. I'll be around as well!

I am at the site content section now.
What is the privacy policy url?
What is a good autoresponder service? What do you use?

How come when I click Publish (not save) it says I cannot publish, I need to go to domains.

When I did all required it says resend email.I did and it seems it's stuck here.

When I checked Hosting, it says Ready.
What is going on???

I am confused about what you are trying to do. If your domain is not set up yet, then you cannot publish articles to your website. It's not set up yet.

I'll need to start with the basics to help you fix this. You need to get your website online first.

Who is your REGISTRAR?
Is your DNS pointing to NS1.MYWAHOSTING.COM NS2MYWAHOSTING.COM ?

I seem to be out of line in terms of understanding this affiliate job but I know even though I am a slow learner in the beginning of everything I do in life, I do believe in myself cos I know once I get it into my head abd shedule everything I will achieve something.

I had a domain purchased some years back. and I intend to use it for my website originally. currently I am promoting supplements and water filtration system in my job, and was hoping to bring it online.

After learning about WA, I was wondering if I can do affiliate marketing on the similar topics as I am doing right now.

I would like to hear some advice if you have any.

Appreciate your time
Reply
nathaniell Premium
You can certainly do affiliate marketing on your website about supplements and water filtration. Health and wellness is a great evergreen topic that many people earn with online.

Was there some more specific advice you were looking for with regards to affiliate marketing or your niche?
Reply
StewartLoh Premium
Thanks for the quick response Nathaniellg.

Although I had heard of affiliate marketing, i have never really went into it before.

I am thinking about using water filtration as a niche. But i have not completed my website and has no ideas on what affiliate programs or ebook is available or where to look for it so i could "plan ahead" to incorporate in my website.

As i am still going through the second training module, i did not want to skip any thing. So i was wondering if you could advise.

Thanks

For water filtration, WHO is your audience? Is there a group of people out there who are passionate about filtering their water?

There are many things you can promote related to water filtration, including home products, whole-house, filters, or camping/survival devices.

I need help here re transfer of my 3 domain names from godaddy to WA. I checked Status & it says pending transfer, resend email.
I checked Hosting and it says READY. But when I clicked it gives me confusing answers. What is happening? Please help, I'm new WA premium. I clicked Support but got stuck in the process.
Reply
nathaniell Premium
"Transferring" a domain is a very specific thing, so I'm not sure if that's exactly what you're trying to do. Let me explain.

1. If you bought a domain at a registrar outside WA, it's not required that you transfer the domain here for it to work. In fact, if you just bought it recently, there's likely a 60 day hold when you cannot transfer if. If you bought a .com domain name from another registrar a while back and are trying to transfer the domain name to WA, the process varies depending on the registrar you used. Two popular ones are Namecheap and Godaddy. If you just want to build your website here, you can keep your domain at Godaddy and just change the DNS. If WA hosting says "ready", then it sounds like you're good to go. But what's the error message you're getting?
Reply
harryoh Premium
It says READY at hosting.
1. does that mean my 3 domain names have been successfully
transferred from godaddy to WA?
2. I did not receive any Message from WA saying approved.
I checked Domain Transfer at WA & it still says "Pending
Transfer". I clicked "Resend email" for several days now and
still No change.
3. I just taiked to godaddy & they said OK on their end !
How do I contact WA support re this ?

Hello Nathaniell!
I hope I'm not being too much of a nuisance, but I want to cancel my WA monthly subscription but I don't know how.
I would also kindly ask you, to please refund my subscription for the month of May.
I bought the first month of subscription (19$ with discount) just because I was curious, but I do not plan to work through Wealthy Affiliate. Also I'm a student, so 49$ makes a huge difference for me
I will be happy to get any kind of answer
Have a good day

Regarding billing issues, you need to PM Kyle. https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/kyle

I'm just a member like yourself, so cannot access any billing formation for payment problems, refunds, etc. He'll be able to fix any problems! It's already May 16 though, so if your payment for May was processed early on, you might not be eligible for a refund. Kyle will have to take a look at your account.

Hope this helps!

Hi Nathaniel,
Thanks for checking out my profile..I want to get through all of the training so I have good overview of the WA approach on the different aspects of the affiliate business..Then i will focus on the parts that I am interested in.. I am particularly interested in the affiliate bootcamp and the affiliate marketing/internet marketing niche..I want to learn how to build a landing page, drive traffic to it and capture emails..
Anyway, if you have any advice on this I'm all ears..
Thanks
Randy
Reply
nathaniell Premium
If you are interested in the IM niche, then bootcamp is the way to go. Kyle has some great training there on how to get free traffic to your site, and even has some paid traffic training in later lessons. He doesn't focus on email marketing, but there are lots of member create training modules, webinars, and older trainings about it that can get you started.

My suggestion though is to follow the training in order, even if some of the newbie stuff is boring for you. You can just skim over it, but staying on track with the lessons (and completing each task), will help you follow along with Kyle's mindset as you take action.

THEN, you can go back and re-do the lessons you had trouble with, liked the best, or just need a refresher on.

Thank u for reaching out to me. I am new to this business and I am eager. I'm hoping I set up my admin process properly.

No problem Richard! The training, including videos, is usually best viewed on a desktop, but tablets should be pretty good as well. If you're having issues with the videos on a tablet, you may want to try a different browser. Chrome is the best!

I decided to take your advice by creating a website instead of starting out with the bootcamp I did create a site a DJ website for parties etc for my brother to help him out so far so good
He given me the content to write thats his niche a DJ music playing so far I gotten to the menu.

If you are experienced, ranking a new website can be quite fast! Check out this person's results: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/jvranjes/blog/debunking-seo-myths-affiliate-links-and-hard-ranking-for-new-sites

For newbies, it generally takes a few months to gain traffic, depending on how much work you do. But keep your eye on smaller successes right now. It's not a race!

Stuff like publishing your first article, getting your first Page 3 ranking, then page 2 ranking, then first organic comment...those are what we should be looking for.

Those small successes will build into big successes over time, as you work consistently on your site!

Congrats on getting a website up for your friend too. Websites are a great way to grow a local business. Search "local" here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/webinar Jay has a ton of great info on how to rank on page 1 specifically for local businesses.

With your DJ website - is your brother advertising his business? More clients means more money! You can also add affiliate links and content, the same way you would for any other niche site like Kyle teaches in the lessons. DJs have to buy stuff, right? You can do product reviews like reviews of turntables, speakers, and music editing programs.

Nathaniell, Nathaniell, Nathaniell, it’s a great pleasure to meet you. Upon surfing the net I came across your JVZoo review (loved it by the way) than clicked the next link. (I think it was named “one more cup of coffee,” which than forwarded me to another link which was based on a (“Wealthy Affiliate review.”)

I than came over to Wealthy Affiliate to locate you and “viola” here you are.

All I can say is that congratulations and I am now following you.
I absolutely loved reading ALL your forwarding links.

Well done my friend, well done.

Hi Nathaniel. I have not really been able to ask some of the questions as my trial period expired while doing some lessons.

My big challenge was with the menu creation, the content to write and what to say on the part that wants us to show how we want to help. Remember I said I want to promote wealthy affiliate first before promoting other companies?

Hi Nathaniell,
Hope your're well.
You're probably very busy but I wonder if I could ask you a question - couldn't find anything at WA....
I'm adding lots of content and getting some traffic and I'm now looking at adding some affiliate links.
While poking around on google I have found a couple of highly-rated wordpress plug-ins that automatically list a product from Amazon, E-bay, Ali-express and lots of other affiliate networks. (Content Egg, EasyBay/EasyAzon Pro)
But when i look at most review sites, they only seem to offer a link to Amazon. Not sure why. It makes sense to me that if you have given an honest review of a product then it would be a good idea to offer more than one purchasing option and the best available price.
So I guess what I'm asking is :
"do you think I should offer a price from Amazon, Ebay and Ali-Express at the end of a review?'
Is there any downside in your opinion?
Do you do it?
Thanks mate.
Best regards,

Steve
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Amazon is just easy to work with, so lots of people choose it. Plus, their affiliate program applies to everything on the site, vs if you just work with the manufacturer, they might not have an affiliate program!

Regarding adding links automatically, those plugins you mentioned all do different things. Some place links automatically within the content, while others require you to place links manually, but display more information about the product (like EasyAzon).

I have seen many sites that do price-compare, but this can be a challenge since Amazon in particular, doesn't allow you to display a price, unless it's through their API, because the price changes daily. Price comparing with Amazon products could lead to many incorrect comparisons!

Hi, I would like to hear your thoughts. One of my ideas for a niche website is promoting natural products and cosmetics. I was thinking through Amazon but I recently started my own line as well, which I will promote on my site eventually. What do you think of this idea for a niche? I would love to hear your ideas.
Reply
nathaniell Premium
You can do Amazon AND your own products AND other companies! I think Sephora has an affiliate program too, as well as many other companies. Natural cosmetics could certainly be a profitable niche, since a lot of women are moving to that style of cosmetics.

Your website is your turf, so you can promote whatever you want, based all around your experiences and opinions.

Hope this helps Rochelle! Let me know if you have any more questions about this.

Hi I know its a really hard question to answer but lets say I dedicate 4 hours a day 5 days a week plus extra over the weekends. What could I potentially earn and how quickly? I understand its all about how much time I commit and what I choose to write about but I am just wanting a ball park figure to go on. I'm a dedicated person and I'm no quitter.
Would you say its possible to be earning £300-400 in the next 3-6 months working on those timings?Thanks Lisa
Reply
nathaniell Premium
How much money you make and how long it takes to earn it really depends on the quality of the time you spend on your website. Just one hour per day is not very much to be honest, but it's enough to start! That's how I started...just a little bit of time each day, and then I gradually worked more and more as I started to see results.

How much money you make from your website depends on how long you work at it, and how fast you learn. It's impossible to predict. Everyone learns at a different pace, so some people see results in a few weeks, and others take several months.

$300-$400 is definitely possible, but it will take some time, and consistent work on your website. I wouldn't expect that to come in a lump sum either! It will trickle in with a small sale, then a couple small sales, then a few big sales, etc.

Here are two great blog posts on the topic:

Hi Nathaniell, i have a very serious question. I'm taking wealthy affiliate very seriously. I really want to know if age plays a part in all of this. I'm 18 years old. People tend to let my age throw them off for some reason. But i want you to know that i happen to be a very dedicated and determined 18 year old with a clear vision of my life goals. I'm enlisted in the united states army, i currently have a fiance and we've been actively pursuing a home all while planning for a wedding. I'm currently really struggling money wise and my full time job just isn't cutting it any more. now i'm not here to rely on a website as a primary source of income but maybe just a way to help me. Or why not have it become a primary source of income. I'm here with high hopes that wealthy affiliate is going to be my saving grace. i'm not a premium member yet but i do intend to become one very soon. i look forward to working with you. thank you very much.

Age won't matter at all, but it might play to your advantage. You're familiar with the internet, and probably have lots of energy to dedicate to your website even after coming home from a normal job/work.

Remember, everyone's website will be on a different topic, so you can make yours for a similar age group to yourself, or on a topic that you like, and then it doesn't matter how old the visitors are because they'll have a similar interest to you.

Anything from Candy Crush to retirement accounts can make money online, so it's more about having your personality come through your site and marketing to people that resonate with YOU and YOUR interests!

Hope this helps Kelvin!

It's not duplicate content if it's your own content that appears 2x on your website. Although, that can cause confusion with the people visiting your website.

In your case, I think it's just because you have a complicated theme and haven't customized it all the way yet. I suggest you pick a simpler theme, and I think that could fix your problem:

I decided to make my website on console game reviews, how to's, and Xbox One and PS4 controllers (I like playing with a controller that has some color on it because it adds uniqueness to your gaming area lol)

Is that a good niche to get into because I know that the gaming industry is huge!?

Hi Nathaniell, I saw your name a couple times from people attributing their journey to WA from connection with you. So, I'm glad I finally crossed your path. I just started 5 days ago from my own "searching" for alternative paths to financial freedom and round-aboutly ended up at WA. I believe I've made an excellent choice and look forward to gleaning knowledge along the way from all of you that have blazed the trail ahead of me. I have my first website ever started and am going through the site up, SEO, and content adding currently. Good to know you Nathaniell!

Hello Nathaniell, I believe I've lost the link you sent relevant to me not receiving emails now for over a week from WA. Can you please sent the information again. Additionally, Jaaxy has not given me an affiliate link even though I have paid $49.00 via PayPal for subscription since November 19, 2017. I notified Jaaxy about this but have not yet gotten a response.

Your email settings are here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/home/my_profile

The label is "account settings" on the left side of your screen.

For the Jaaxy affiliate link, it's in your Jaaxy Dashboard. It should be under "Affiliate Program" > "Program Details", as shown here: https://www.screencast.com/t/LYPwvJO6b

Let me know if that doesn't work for you Eugene!

Hello Nathaniell, oddly enough, it's only Wealthy Affiliate's emails that are not being received as all other senders emails I do receive. so it's logical to believe that theb problem is not on this end. I tried the email settings and everything seems to be in order. I also tried Jaaxy's screencast link but was unable to go to 'Program details" for some reason. This problem is headed into the third week and is causing me some serious concerns. If WA is unable to resolve or assist me in resolving this problem, I will have to unsubscribe from Wealthy Affiliate...something I'd hate to do, but under the circumstances it appears that I have no other choice.
Any ideas you can muster, I'd be happy to try.

Cheers!

I'm not really sure which emails you are not receiving. Is the problem that you are not receiving the social emails from WA, like when people post information to you? If that's the case, you can just log in to check your information. Those are a very minor aspect of WA and have no impact on your business success.

If you are not receiving emails through your domain email, that's a different story, and we should definitely fix that.

One common mistake is that people send email from their forwarding address to "test" the email, and it creates an infinite loop, so you never receive the email.

I'm not 100% sure what you mean that you are "not receiving Wealthy Affiliate's emails".

Nathaniell, I'm not receiving any email communications thru my domain email from WA...absolutely none. I've check all related settings and they appear to be in order. I'm so confused at this point and don't know where to turn next. But there just has to be an explanation to this problem.
Reply
nathaniell Premium
How do you know people are sending you email?

As mentioned above, if you send email to yourself and forward it to the same address, it won't send or receive.

I highly recommend using the forwarding instead of domain email, since it's easier to manage than using Atmail. WA email works! I use it.

Nathaniell, I am only able to confirm emails received every day from scores of people, known and unknown. Emails from WA has stopped coming in, and I am dumbfounded as to the reason why.
I will try the link in yo provided and see what happens. Will keep you informed.

Much thanks for your assistance.

If this matter isn't resolved, do you think that I'd be allowed to unsubscribe and thereafter be reinstated at my current status...to possibly reestablish communication between Wealthy Affiliate and me? Just a thought!

Hi Eugene, you mention that "this matter needs to be resolved", but the fact is that WA email is working properly! I'm trying my best to help you set it up.

There is some confusion here that's tough for me to understand. You said that you want to "reestablish communication between Wealthy Affiliate and yourself", but from the last message you said "not receiving any email communications thru my domain email from WA"

So, I'm unsure if you are not receiving domain email, not receiving notifications from WA member activity, or not receiving emails from Kyle and Carson. I have described the process of how to troubleshoot each of these, but have not received affirmation from you that you've tried to do any of these things.

All of these functions are working properly in WA as of right now, but in order to help you get the email you're talking about, I need to know what exactly is not working for you, so I can help you troubleshoot further.

All that being said, email is a secondary priority to creating content for your site, which is how you get traffic and sales to your business.
Reply
buildyournow Premium
Nathaniell, perhaps I was not very clear with my choice of words. Since I possess another email address (eterrbu2@gmail.com), I thought it would be better to have all email messages forwarded to this email rather than the one I'm having problems with...while effort is being made to sort out the problem.
I did troubleshoot the areas per your suggestion to no avail.
I'm not receiving domain emails or notifications from WA's member activity or emails from either Kyle or Carson.

Here's a surprise! My wife just revealed that she vividly recalls my 8 year old grandson tampering with my laptop about the same time I begun to experience problems...about 3 weeks ago. Chances are he might have done something to cause this as everything was working perfectly up to that time. Truthfully I don't know what else to tell you. I will continue to work on solving this problem nonetheless.
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Ah, I see. Those are two different problems! The one of the email is most likely that you are sending email from eterrbu2@gmail.com to your domain email, which is a forward, thus making the infinite loop. Try deleting the domain email, then making it again (as a forward) If you test it, make sure to email yourself from a DIFFERENT email, so you don't create the loop. Better yet, you can have your wife send you an email to your domain email to test.

Regarding the WA emails, it's possible there is some kind of issue with your ISP blocking the emails. What emails are you trying to get get? Notification emails? The settings are here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/home/my_profile

Otherwise, you can just log in and check your notifications which are the green globe at the top of your screen. Don't worry too much about those notifications. WA activity is awesome, and I'm glad you're interested in it, but the main focus should be moving through the lessons and creating content.

Maybe revisiting this issue in a week or two would allow you to come at the problem with fresh eyes. Sometimes the solution is starting us in the face and we can't see it. Trust me, I've been there too Eugene! I started out just like you :)

Hi Nathaniell,
Thanks for the support. I actually could use some help with niche ideas.

The first idea I have is to help connect people to healthy supplements. I have a background in holistic health, so it seems natural to give health advice as well as suggest certain herbal formulas or other supplements that can actually help without causing harm or with minimizing harm.

Another idea I have is to use my passion for travel to connect people to unique travel destinations. I was thinking of specializing in spiritual or healing retreats that have affiliate programs.

The next idea fits hand in hand with the spiritual writing I've been doing. I have a book coming out soon, and wanted to start a spiritual blog. I figured I could always suggest other books that people may find useful within the spirituality niche. Are books a good market to enter?

Lastly, I actually first came upon WA when I read one of your posts on entering the video game market. I've been a gamer since I was young. I watch some of these "let's play" youtubers and it seems like a fun market to be in.

I could use your advice on my ideas. Are these good markets?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
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!

So all your ideas are actually great. I think the spiritual retreats is an interesting niche to write about, though you may struggle to find affiliate programs in this area. I'm not sure...you can search in Google to see. Look for "keyword" + "affiliate program". You never know!

Any sort of "natural health" niche could work, but make sure you have a target audience. Being healthy means different things to different people, so target a group of people with similar mindsets and goals.

Gaming would be similar. It's very popular, but have a target group in mind. Not all gamers are the same!

What do you think?
Reply
metzger503 Premium
Sounds good. One other question. With all these different interests I have, I could see myself entering multiple markets. What is your thought on having multiple niches? I imagine that at some point there just isn't enough time in the week to spend on every niche, but as it stands I would like to give energy to multiple niches. Maybe at first just focus on one then branch out later.
Reply
nathaniell Premium
You are exactly right. Most people have time for just 1-2 websites unless you start outsourcing. That's definitely a possibility for the future, but you'll need a budget to pay for writers! I'd start with your personal favorite, since you'll be behind the steering wheel on this one. Branch out to other niches as you have time and interest.

You may find that your first choice isn't the "best" choice for whatever reason, so there's always a possibility to enter other niches in the future.

Let me know if you're choosing between a couple and want some advice on the "best" one to start with. ANY niche can make money, but I do believe that some have an easier path to profits!

I start traveling, Argentina, Spain, France, USA, New Zealand currently, and I realize one thing, even if I'm now earning 600 dollars a week as a waitress, I'm still quite not conform with my style life, cause I realize that what i want is not money, is TIME, time to travel, to live, to explore.

Nathaniell,

What's up? Just checking in and saying hello. I stumbled upon your review of doTERRA and started looking into you and this business and became very interested. I am sort of just dipping my toes in the water to this whole idea right now but I will definitely be giving this a full effort. Overall, I am very impressed with your writing skills and eagerness for helping others. Those are what really attracted me to this thing. There is another website out there that did a similar review of the companies but yours seemed so much more real.

Any who, I am looking forward to what lies ahead with this and I am sure you will see my name many times as I like to ask tons of questions.

Day/Swing trading for beginners is a great niche. Honestly, I tried to learn that a few years ago, and there aren't very many good resources for TRUE beginners. I found it confusing! This is a great opportunity to help newbies get started and make some money.

Plus, since some companies are launching Bitcoin futures in the next few days (and probably more in the future), I think day trading cryptocurrencies could be an interesting path to explore in the future!

Hi Nathaniell. Thanks for your offer of help. I am a little confused. I am building my first website and have the choice of 2000+ sites. My chosen niche is used camera equipment exchange. What is the purpose of the site? Am I going to be selling items or pointing my customers to my affiilliate partners? Should I be looking for e-commerce on this first site please?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
You'll be pointing people to affiliate offers, whether that be physical products or digital products like guides and videos.

The "2,000 websites"....is that the WordPress themes you're looking at? The "themes" are just designs to choose from. If that's not it, I'm not sure what the "2,000 websites" thing is. Maybe it was Kyle talking about possible niche choices?

Anyway, the gist of what you'll be doing is creating a blog-style website, writing content that promotes or refers people to products. Let me know if you have further questions about this or need clarification!

Awesome to connect with you Nathaniel! Looking forward to learn more from you. I have a question though... about receiving payments from the affiliate program.

Is there any other option like paychecks or direct deposit(Payoneer) ?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
For payments from Wealthy Affiliate, Paypal is the main option but I think you could work something out with Kyle and Carson if you can start getting referrals. However, it's not required that you promote WA. There are hundreds of other affiliate programs you can work with, many of them use Payoneer, direct deposit, or even Bitcoin to pay people!

Hi Nat. I'm working on my first website and have been fooling around with a couple of themes that were recommended to me by others in the community. One is Customizr which was recommended because of its mobile capabilities but might not be the best route for a total neophyte. The other is Sydney which seems pretty intuitive, but not sure I like how it looks on mobile. Could you recommend a theme that might be a good choice for a newbie and is current enough that it will support mobile features?
Do you use basically the same theme for all your sites? Thanks! Fred

Hi Nathaniel, I want to temporarily leave the program. I think I may be ready for it in a year or so, but right now I am training to do Thai Bodywork, and want to focus on maximizing my in-person business. Online work seems to really be a time drain for me, so I have to put it aside for now. Is there a way to keep my Basic free membership, and re-upgrade later on?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
To temporarily top it, you have to cancel here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/home/my_profile

When you return, your account will remain be exactly the same as you left it. However, because your membership is stopped, your website will go offline too, unless you move it to another host, which will cost between $6 and $50/month depending on the host you choose.

WA will keep your website live for 30 days, and keep a backup copy for 6 months.

You won't be able to revert back to a free membership, but once you are ready to come back to WA, you can definitely re-join with this same account and begin again!

Have you ever heard of a company called Premier Marketing Solutions? They claim that they will set you up with a custom website for e-commerce selling and links to a drop shipment company called Doba and the fees are not that bad. However it sounds too good to be true.

Have you or do you know anyone with experience in setting up an e-commerce company and what are the issues with doing it?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
I haven't heard of "Premier Marketing Solutions", though if they claim to set you up with a functioning business for $x.xx dollars, then I would proceed with caution! Most people will sell businesses that earn money for a large premium, so I suspect that it's just a basic website with some features that look fancy to newbies.

Ecommerce websites can certainly make money, but you should check out all aspects of the business, including what products are marketed, where they're sourced from, and what your profit margins are going to be. What's the plan for traffic?

In my experience, "business in a box" solutions are all sizzle and no steak.

This looks like a complicated theme. I'd maybe suggest picking something simpler to work with: It's a lot easier to get started on a simple theme!

Otherwise, I'd check in the custom menu area, and make sure that you are assigning your menus to a location. Sometimes after you create a menu, you still have to put it in a location in order to see it live.

If you were gone for just three months, then your site should still be stored on WA's servers. Contact SiteSupport and see if they can restore it for you: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/support

Hey Nathaniell its Joe here. I have a question about the website URL name. As I have finalized my niche, which is "Organic Bodybuilding Products"... Should I use this as an URL name? Or should I come up with something else that are shorter (eg. organicfitness).

A domain name won't make or break a website - it's a matter of personal preference. You can choose a brandable domain name that's catch and easy to remember, or a keyword based domain name, which is more descriptive and may rank better for that one specific keyword. The majority of your "rank" and traffic will come from individual pages, so the exact domain you choose is a very small part of the website building process.

I have done both, with success! Personally, I prefer to have a brandable, short domain name because it's easier to remember and shorter in the search engines!

You can basically get any domain URL you want using this trick as well, in case you had some other ideas you though but they were not available:

if I drop out of premium can I still stay on the free account because I have 2 domains pointing at wealthy affiliate and I started a website. Please respond because I do not want to be charged in a few days. Sharon

You will have 30 days to move them to another host. If you bought a domain like a .com, you own the domain and the content and can keep your site as-is with a new host.

If you are using siterubix, WA keeps the domain name, but you keep the content. You can still move your site, but you have to pick a new domain name.

Unfortunately, it's not possible to downgrade back to the starter, since you cannot host your own domains domains on a free account.

Hi Nathaniell, I was just dropping a comment on your review about AffiliateU. That gave me the chance to check out your page a bit more and your success story is quite impressive. I am currently trying to monetize my page by adding material and affiliate links. However, writing good reviews is more difficult for me than normal blog posts about the topic of my page - learning European Portuguese.
It would be awesome if you could give me some feedback about the current state of my webpage learn-portuguese.org and about how to lead traffic to my page. Some of my articles rank in the first 5 pages of google, however I have only around max. 10 visitors per day. Sometimes even none..
Thanks a lot and have a great day!
Mia.

Nathaniel,
I have a question about having a website with WA. The build looks very easy, but with other sites I have had to pay for the website, hosting, Leadpages, GetResponse, ClickMangick, etc. in order to get up and running. Will that be necessary here? I have purchased a domain and would like to start building my site tomorrow.
Reply
nathaniell Premium
If you want those other services like leadpages and getresponse, they will be paid to that service. However, hosting is included with your WA membership, so you do not have to pay for hosting. If you want a premium theme, you'd have to buy that.

Basically, you can use just the WA hosting and there's no need for buying anything else. However, some paid tools may do things you WANT on your website. You can decide on a case by case basis. But there are not outside tools required in order to make the WA training work for you.

The only outside expense would be buying a domain name, but you can buy that within WA (or registrar of your choice)

Jaaxy is defniitely an option. I use it! But it's not required if you are on a budget. We have a free keyword tool inside WA https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/kw_research

If you do have the funds for it though, it can really speed up your keyword research process and save you time!

Hi Nathaniell,
Came up with a niche yesterday, Learn Blues Bass With Ernie, targeted at beginners looking to buy instruments, accessories, and training materials, etc... and narrowing it down to a single style that is good for learning the instrument. Now I am not so sure. I am wondering if I should do something along the lines of Beginning Bass Guitar or Get Started Playing Bass Guitar. My thinking is that the first one implies a lesson site and while I plan to do some of that I don't necessarily have to as there are plenty of tutorial sites and resources that I could point visitors to and earn a commission. With something like Get Started Playing Bass Guitar it could be more about gear reviews tutorial reviews and recommendations, general advice articles, maybe some tutorials and ebooks later, etc...

What do you think about all of that? I am thinking that I want to change my niche to Get Started Playing Bass Guitar.

Thanks,
Ernie
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Either could be good. Personally, I think the best would be a combo, like "beginners blues bass guitar". "Blues" and "Bass" are so broad, that audiences might mix. Especially considering lots of people join to learn a specific music genre, I think beginners blues bass would be specific enough to reach a single audience, but still provide you with plenty of material to write about.

Nathaniell, I hate to ask, but is there any chance you can look at my site and give me feedback? The link to the video you sent me did not help me. I am really having problems with this. i honestly tried every instruction I could find, but this is not working out. Maybe if you can log in to my site and tell me where I'm making the error, it would help because I am ready to scream from frustration. I seriously want to move on and I refuse to publish my site when I know there are all kinds of problems there. If you go to pages, you will find About and Privacy Policy. They are not appearing where they are supposed to. Also I created the Pr policy in Site Content and published it but it is not appearing on the editor. Please don't ask me to go to the community, because I really don't have time to play with answers that do not help me. Would you please advise?

So you're trying to get pages into the menu, right? You need to create a custom menu like from the video I showed you.

If you are concerned about the phrase "It seems we can’t find what you’re looking for. Perhaps searching can help.", don't be. That's just because you haven't published a "post" yet. Alternatively, you can just switch themes and the options for another theme may be easier for you to navigate.

Nathaniell, I have another question for you. I have a couple of domains that I already own (working on lesson 4) that I'd like to transfer in to WA hosting and complete through this program. I was told when I bought them from GoDaddy, that they would be registered with my name/address, etc... - and that for a fairly significant fee (2x the cost of the URL) that I could pay to have my information blocked. I did not buy it. Is there a way that I can have my private information blocked when I bring the URLs into being hosted by WA?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Yes, your private information is blocked FOR FREE as part of WA's domain registrar. That's why Godaddy no longer has my business!

However, keep in mind that Godaddy puts a 60 day lock on domain transfers, so if they are brand new domains, you may have to wait to transfer them. Also, when you bring them over to WA, you'll need to purchase a full year of registration, which will be $15 per year, per domain.

If they have you locked for 60 days, you can still build your website with WA as your host and Godaddy as your registrar, then complete the domain transfer later.

Oh, and just FYI, considering your personal info may be exposed through the domain registration, Wealthy Affiliate will never call you on the phone. There have been some scammers in the past that look people up and call them pretending to be us. They are not!

Hello,
I found your information when I googled "how much money can you make on wealthy affiliate". I just joined WA a few days ago and am still on the free membership but am really interested in Premium. I am looking to spend about 3-5 hours a night after work putting together my online business. Do you think that this is sufficient time to start making an income within a few months? Also, can you send me some of the websites that you have created that you are earning an income from? I would like to get ideas for layouts, niches, etc. I would like to do an electronics site, and a health and weight loss site. Thank you for any info you can provide me!

Hey Nathaniell, I am super excited to be a part of the WA family. I'm all signed up and even upgraded to Premium. I was able to work through some of the "Get Started" course until I got to the building a website part...I have a website at the present time and would really appreciate some feedback from someone with experience. Here are some things I would like your opinion on...
1 Is it user friendly.?
2 When you arrive at my site do you understand what it's about?
3 Are you compelled to sign up for the free E-book "What It Means To Be A Conscious Consumer" ?
4 After visiting my site, if you, later, decided you wanted to try (for example) using a non-toxic flea killer for your dog, do you think you would remember it?
That's all I can think of right now, but please look around a let me know what you think.

Thanks,

1. Yes, it is user friendly, but I think the top logos are too big. I have to scroll down to see the content! You should try to introduce "information" as soon as possible. I think a small logo and tagline would suffice.

2. Yes, I understand that it's about organic living, but it could be more clear what your site is specifically about. Are you selling your own products? Are you teaching people how to go organic? Are you about growing your own food, or just organic recipes?

3. You could definitely work on your "call to action here". What's the reason to sign up? There should be an incentive. What are you going to offer me, that I absolutely need? Maybe 10 Kale recipes? 3 pieces of legislation that could affect climate change? Something compelling!

4. Probably not. Most people rarely come back to websites. That's why it's important to rank for keywords. If you had a top ranking post about non-toxic flea killer, I might remember your site and click on it before another site!

Hope this helps :) Thanks for asking specific questions for your feedback!

Hello my friend.
I am going to create a page doing product reviews and have some amazon product links on there. I am in The UK so use UK amazon to purchase. If I use the Amazon UK site to get the affiliate link from, does that mean US visitors will not be able to click that link and purchase the item?

Amazon has a new system that automatically changes your link from the UK to US and vice versa. It should be advertised within your affiliate area if you signed up for Amazon already. If not, then it will be available when you get to that part of the training.

Hi Nathaniell it's nice to hear from you. Congratulations on your accomplishments so far and wish you more success. I have not been involved in internet marketing before but I am willing to learn. As I said before I just turned 71 years on the 3rd of August and when I was coming out we didn't engage too much with all these guagets the younger once have now. The way the world community is going now we older once must play catch up so we won't be too far behind. I am here now, and with this friendly Wealthy Affiliate Community I have all of you to draw support from, and achieve my goal of understanding how to use different functions of my computer, how internet marketing works and at the same time create wealth. You all are my family now. I only joined less than 24 hours ago and it seems like I have known you all forever. I want to give a special thanks to the founders of this awesome business.

Do you mind to check out my blog and let me know how can I improve it? There are just too many things I want to do with it (I have a LOT of idea) - is just that my mind is overwhelmed with knowledge lol so I have no clear direction.

Cool site! Looking awesome so far. Love the dinosaur :)

You'll be able to transfer your site to WA after going premium. Right now, as a free member, you can only use two free siterubix subdomains. Once you go premium, you can host up to 25 of your own domains.

The site support team will actually help you move one website for free, so if you want to do that after you go premium, then they can handle that for you.

Looking forward to working with you man!

Thank you so much for the video how to build your website, I did enjoy it and I can wait to make my own and I do have some questions concerning the starting to building of my website and I need your help !
I have this domain " myWeave.com "
Should I choose a new domain name
Would appreciate to your support and thank you!
Reply
nathaniell Premium
It depends on your niche! Your domain name should be descriptive about your niche.

A domain name won't make or break a website - it's a matter of personal preference. You can choose a brandable domain name that's catch and easy to remember, or a keyword based domain name, which is more descriptive and may rank better for that one specific keyword. The majority of your "rank" and traffic will come from individual pages, so the exact domain you choose is a very small part of the website building process.

I have done both, with success! Personally, I prefer to have a brandable, short domain name because it's easier to remember and shorter in the search engines!

You can basically get any domain URL you want using this trick as well, in case you had some other ideas you though but they were not available:

Hey Nathaniell,

I just want to run something by you real quick to get a little bit of insight. Right now I'm taking classes online for an AS in Medical Coding & Billing, my graduation date is set for Sep. 2018. I'm doing this as a backup because I believe it is always good to have one, but one I'm done with this degree I'm going for my BA in Biblical Studies with a minor in Psychology. I want my website to revolve around being able to help people. Once I earn my BA I may even write books or make other media available, but the main focus is helping people with anything from domestic violence, substance abuse, family and marriage, and other hardships millions of people experience every day.

At this point I don't really have anything to sell but I'm looking at becoming an affiliate with companies who do offer services like those mentioned above. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Should I narrow my niche down to something more specific? What do you think?

Thank you in advance for any tips or guidance you have for me,

~Kai

Actually, you can make money not selling anything on your site: With something as simple as Adsense (Google Ads), you just put up the code, and the ads make sales for each click you get.

But there will be so many options to monetize. I'm sure there's affiliate programs for rehab facilities/resorts, and books/courses on how to save a marriage. Those are just off the top of my head, and there will be more options for the other things you talked about.

That being said, I would suggest you go a bit more specific with your website.

Someone looking for a 6 month rehab facility is looking for a different type of website than someone trying to escape an abusive relationship.

It's all about finding a targeted audience!

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!

So new problem - or continuing take your pic

I got a new theme for affiliate marketing that is responsive and it crashed the site and doesn't download! just great!

I have never heard from Kyle and wrote to him directly.which doesn't sit well with me at all. I asked specific questions and if no one else knows he should be the one to know.

Tomorrow I will be taking my site out of WA and have to start all over building it.

The site here runs so very slow, I was doing pages today and watched it buffer and buffer - my other sites didn't do that.

I want my annual fee back. I will go with monthly for now to see how things go and continue the training. I won't be using the hosting here. I don't know what the problem is with it and I don't have time to figure it out.

I need to have you direct me as to how I can get my annual back and go monthly. I have barely been on 2 weeks.

There are a number of issues that could have gone wrong that caused your site to crash, including uploading a theme that was too large via the WordPress uploader. Sometimes you have to use FTP.

WA actually has very fast hosting Any number of issues could cause your site to be slow, especially if you are uploading premium plugins and themes.

As for Kyle's response time, he can take a few days to get back to messages, especially when they are quite long. However, I respond to you daily, and you have access to hundreds of other members. I haven't seen you posting any questions in classrooms, or on the training: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/sheilame26/questions

For your niche, that's a great start! But keep in mind that "general health" for someone over 40 can apply to many types of people. Someone who's married and overweight wanting to have more energy is a different type of person than a recently divorced man trying to get back into the dating scene.

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

So you could go with "brain health for people over 40" or "nutrition for women over 50". Something like that. What do you think?

So I have two niches - what do you think? I have researched and feel there is a need for both - I have students that talk about both. I work part time as a brand ambassador and people talk about both all the time.
Simplesleeptips. com and creativepainrelief. com

I would have loved 2 words, not happening. I have to move forward. I am not going to buy a domain name. And I can write about both of these topics. I have ideas for affiliate products for both, which leaves me with larger sale items and smaller items, too. Does the sites on WA allow us to do videos/vlogging?

Healthy living, fitness, nutrition, food, movement, brain health is my thing so both of these fit my knowledge base and passion.

I have people that are waiting for me to have a a lifestyle tip blog, so I will buy creativelifestyletips. com, too which is a broader idea, I know. However, I still can have affiliate sales on it, and back links to the articles I write on the other 2 sites - going back and forth which means I don't have to write 3 new articles, but do a spin on 1 idea or concept.

So the sites we build here. Do I have the ability to make sure they are secure against the crazy spammers and malicious jerks that love to mess with people? Can I add some CSS styling if need be? What is the framework of the sites?

Yes, I am studying HTML/CSS right now, too. And I build WPress sites, just not for anyone else at this point. I was going to do that as a business with my writing, but affiliate marketing is easier in my mind as long as I work it daily.
Reply
nathaniell Premium
The sites you build here will be WordPress websites, so you'll be able to make any html or css changes you want along the way.

As for security, WA websites are very secure. They have many measures in place to block hacking, and a proprietary spam blocking system so you don't need a plugin for this: As for blocking specific individuals, they cannot control what happens on social media, but you can block specific IPs or email addresses within the WordPress dashboard Sounds like you have a great plan moving forward!

I realize the pages on the site with seo are going to be important, but I want to get the domain simple and there are no - 2 word ones... spent 2 days searching.

Is nutrition too broad if I use a byline that narrows it?

The supplement industry has gone up 31% in the last couple of years. I can write about food, supplements, skin care, fitness, that has to do with aging and provide solution-based information.

You could possibly use a byline to narrow down your niche. As I mentioned, the domain name doesn't matter that much as long as it's clear, in some way, who your content is targeting.

Any of your examples could work! There is not perfect recipe for picking a name for a website that will guarantee success, so I'd just go with your gut.

Hi Jay. Sorry to hear that! WA is on an automatic billing cycle so people can keep their websites up without worrying about lapsing their hosting.

I'm not the owner of WA, so I have no access to billing info. You'll need to contact Kyle about this. Depending on when billing happened, you may be able to get a refund for the most recent month, but I don't think there's much that can be done about the months before that.

Nathaniel it would be great to meet up with you in Napa or closer to where you live like a coffee shop sometime after I get this site set up... wondering what is considered the struggle or tough part about getting this all set up and running?

I work out in the heat of the sun on our farm for my brother...and thats what I consider tough right now because it's getting hot!!!

my other website uses pay pal for free....is that how this one can be set up too...
my other word press site has not sold one t shirt and we did all the seo even for each category of t shirt
all my sales have been word of mouth
I have my online retail license from that website so I know i am covered for this one with that...

how many products can we have ? I'd like to think unlimited because on my other site I just kept adding new pages for different categories of shirts...

and I don't think we really will need to try out each product to have it for sale...no budget for that one

Hi Nathaniell. Got your e-mail. Ian first introduced me to WA and I signed up to Premium last Friday.

Funny enough we have something in common - wayback I spent a year in Qingdao, Shadong Province, PRC setting up a JV over there. Enjoyed it. Then 20 years later my eldest son spent a year at Beijinq University as part of his MA in Mandarin.

Well done on your success online - and no doubt it will grow & grow for you.

Kind regards

Hey Nathaniell! I am really impressed to read about your experience! When you start here at WA you think that "ok, maybe it can be possible" but you always have a doubt in the back of your mind and you think that maybe you are just dreaming too high. But reading experiences like yours, really makes me want to continue =) Thank you!
Can I just ask you what was your first website about?
Just curious!

Hi there! It's funny but i googled peerfly because i was considering it, because being a newbie i would like to find the quickest way to make money. I came across your review and now you helped me changed my mind about it, while i was reading the review i was thinking i bet this person is from WA sure enough lol. Then i recognized you, amazing the success you've had it's inspiring and motivating. :) Do you care to share your sites i'd love to see them if I could? Best! ~ Dawna

Hi Nathanniel

I was just working my way though your day 2 email and one of the tasks was to view a WA video on "choosing a profitable niche" with a link to the WA website - but when I clicked on the link, it took me to a page that said "Not Found" and that the resource was no longer available.

I did find another video on the WA website as part of their Online Entrepreneur Certification course called "Choosing your direction" which comes as part of lesson 2 (so still early on in the process), which I guess may be an updated version of the video you were trying to link me to, so I'll continue watching that...but thought you should know that the video you're trying to link to in your email doesn't appear to exist any more! Either that or somehow the link isn't working as it should.

Thanks

Hi There
Just for interests sake what do you average a month now?

I read your review on Anik Singal lucky I didn't have the $ 1497 he wanted me to spend otherwise I would have been much poorer.

Now thanks to you I won't make that mistake.

I am from South Africa the Rand is on 13 to the dollar I would have lost R 20 000 rand that is not even what most people earn per month here

Hiya Nathaniell,

You were so helpful and full of information before that i said ill just run this by you.

So i ended my membership with WA the other month and they wouldn't allow me access to my website. So i messaged them and They told me rejoin to gain access to my site. So i rejoined and then they told me i now have access but if i cancelled my membership i would no longer have access to my site! Im totally stressed, how do i go about transferring my website out of WA??

Thank You Nathaniell

nathaniell Premium
To transfer your website outside WA, you'll need to find a new host. These cost $$, so shop around and find one you like. You'll have your 30 days of membership plus 30 days grace period to move the site.

Once you find a new host, you'll need to download your database (xml), and your wp-content folder, then transfer them to the new host. They may be able to do this for you, or provide service to do it for you (for a fee).

Let them know WA doesn't have CPanel, so they will need to do the transfer via FTP.

Let me know if you have any more questions about this!

Hey Nathaniell! I hope your week is going just lovely! Had (2) question for you:
*my website still says "NO" for Google Index. It's been longer than 2 weeks, do you have any ideas why?
*I login my site thelifestylereport.siterubix.com from the WA/websites back-end page. After timing out the page will kick me out and ask about a Wordpress login/password. I tried my personal email and WA login information and it's not correct. How do I get this?
Thank you for your help!

Your login information should be in your SiteManager section: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites

It's different from your WA login credentials.

But if you are having trouble logging in from inside WA, that shouldn't happen that way! It may be an issue with the site, or with the login portal. Contact SiteSupport and let them know what's happening! https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/support

Yes, go to mywebsite.com/wp-login.php and use your login info from your website manager.

If you are still on a siterubix subdomain, the it's normal that your website is not indexed yet. If you have moved it to a .com now that you're premium, it should be indexed by now, but can take longer sometimes. Are you already publishing content? That helps to get you indexed.

Hi Nathaniell...!

HELP...! Please see this thread: I am collaborating with http://plantricianproject.org, and they have agreed to upload my site to their Resources section, but they are having difficulty doing so.

At first I thought it was because of a connection that was not secure, so I uploaded a plug-in and secured the site, based on Marion's tutorial.

I then sent the Plantrician folks my site again, and this is the message I got from her:"Its still not uploading. It never finishes processing. I have uploaded other resources in the same batch today and they work..."

I have attached her screen shot where you can see my site upper left, trying to process. I can't imagine why this is happening? Could it be the affiliate links? Something else?

Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Is there a technical I.T. person on staff who could look into this for me? I would be happy to contact them --

Thank you again,

Hi Nathaniell - I have a few questions. Depending upon your answers, I am ready to upgrade.

So I wanted to set up a regular website instead of under a subdomain named siterubix. I used the green button on the right for setting up your own website, while following my lessons. When I typed in a name, it said Not Available. I checked to see what site had this name, and the name was For Sale. Is this going to happen every time I pick a name? I am starting to feel a bit scammed.

Next. I don't have a lot of time and ideas to waste. Not sure what the point of setting up a website that no one will find under a subdomain is a good idea. I asked this question in the community, and it was a Premium-only question. This feels scammish, too. Can you help me.

Thanks,

Hi Nathaniell
Ok you know by now I opted for the premium upgrade which was an easy choice but unfortunately not so easy financially. Any way I wasn't aware that when I made the switch to premium, in order for me to continue and get my site running,that I would be required to almost immediately have to spend more money. If,in fact. I'm incorrect on this I do apologize When I try to set my domain name with the "domain I own" option, a price list opens with various prices. I am really not trying to sound unappreciative but I thought that up to 25 domains were free as a bonus to me joining the premium status
Thanks Al
Reply
nathaniell Premium
You do have 25 free domains, but those are siterubix website, like the free ones you've been using. They are good, and can work, but a .com is going to be your best bet for a strong website in Google. You can hold off and buy it later if you want! It's OK to work on your site for a few months then change to .com at that point when you have the money.

You can host an additional 25 domains (.com), though you would have to buy each of those.

So total you get 25 free ones (siterubix), and can add 25 paid ones (.com/org/net).

Hi Hathaniell, I wanted to take you up on your offer to answer a question. I have long thought about a site that caters to middle age men (primarily) that are looking to improve their lifestyle in the areas of fitness, health and basically living a life worth living. I noticed some time ago many guys that seemed as they got older did less, gave up more of who they are etc. It was shocking really to see it happening to so many. Is this WAY to broad? It seems different then folks that are promoting cats or hunting knives and such. I am off base that this could be a niche - Thanks Mark
Reply
nathaniell Premium
That could definitely be a niche. You should consider taking on just one of those subjects, like just fitness, just finance, or just dating. That would be the "proper" way to refine your idea to one specific audience. A fit guy looking to get his retirement in order will look for a different website that a rich guy looking to get back in shape.

But if you want to go a bit more general, and that's your passion, that's totally fine as well.

Hi Nathaniell --

Regarding your post on my question about what to do next - you had commented that setting up the WA affiliate site as part of my web design business wouldn't be a good idea as it wouldn't bring directed traffic if it is part of my business website --

BUT-- I can integrate it into my web design and marketing website, and since I run that business from home, it may be a good way to introduce WA as another way to work at home, and direct people to a dedicated page on the site, along with the affiliate banners and links throughout -- thoughts?

ALSO -- A couple of weeks ago, I noticed that my post about "Teeccino herbal coffee" was on page 3 of Google. Today, I went back to see if it was still there -- its NOT -- no where to be found going down about 6 pages.
BUT.
TWO of my Google-Plus posts are on Page ONE of google, which reference the Teeccino article I posted on G+.

Why would the G+ posts be showing up on page 1, and not my website with the same article?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
If you can find a way to make it relevant and integrate it, then go for it! That was just a general suggestion, but as a business owner you're able to pretty much do whatever you want with your site!

Regarding losing rank:

It's quite common to go up and down in rankings over time, especially with a new site. People call it the "google dance". If your content is good, just go about your business. Some things you can do in the meantime are

- Add some internal links back to the post
- Update some of the content within the post (add, update)
- Add some more media (pictures, video)
- Do some more social shares (in case people missed it before)
- Ask for comments on social media or within WA

Jay also has lots of good webinars to check out that can help getting ranked and keeping up with basic SEO Regarding G+ showing up on page one, that's just because you're logged in to Google. People that follow you on G+ might see that, but others won't. That's one (of the few) advantages of building a Google+ following.
Reply
amyr2017 Premium

With respect to G+, I was not logged in and did my search from a hidden browser... did Google find me anyway?

Hmm..... I thought I just had to go to a private or hidden browser?

Also, I noticed that the 2 webinars you posted on the answer above are from 2012 and 2013 -- aren't they considered "old" now that google has changed it's algorithm for SEO and everything?

Thanks.
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Yeah, it should just be a private browser. I'm not sure where the error could have occurred.

WA focuses on techniques that don't come in and out of fashion. The core of these idea is creating a solid business that people want to visit, not just a website which manipulates the algorithm.

Hi Nathaniell
I am looking to have a mentor to help me throughout every section of this WA journey and am asking you would be willing to be that for me. At the moment I am doing Course 1 in Lesson 9.
Im a 21 year old South African University student. In the past two years I have managed to save 75$ which in my country is a lot of money. This is all the money I have. Theres very little chance of me getting anymore money. I plan on joining the group as a premium member on my 5th day of my free trial and here is where my problem lies... With the money that I have accumulated I will be able to pay the 47$ fee on the second month since there will be enough left in my card for it. I am desperate to know if you think I will be able to make enough money off the website I am in the process of making to pay that fee because I am very invested in the program emotionally and financially. Is this goal achievable if Im dedicating 3 hours everyday to working on this craft?
My plan is to make enough money to survive every months membership fee at the moment.
Please reply to this message.

Your advice and perspective will be very much appreciated

Nathaniell, before I go premium I want you to check my new website and tell me what you think about my niche, website's name and "about me" page. Your opinion is important for me. My new website is: theflyingbeatle DOT siterubix Dot com SLASH about-me
Is it good? Please let me know what you think. Thanks!
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Looks like you already went premium!

Your about me page is looking great! Sounds like a very interesting story of how you got into this. The more engaging and personal your website is, the more people will trust you and want to read what you write. I like that you added a picture there!

I would break up the paragraph though. Make it easier to ready by having smaller paragraphs instead.

The site is off to a good start!

It's a little bit hard to comment too much because there's not much content on there right now.

My recommendation at this point is to continue with the training. The website will look quite boring in the beginning. It's just how new websites look.

As you work through the training, add content, and learn how to use new features, your site will begin to look "fuller", and more customized to your tastes.

I think you've picked an interesting niche, and I'm excited to see where you can take this website.

Hi,
I need your help. I have just finished level 1 and enjoyed it a lot. If I go premium, I must change to my own domain? Does it cost more money? Or I can stay with the siterubix? I don't understand, what is the difference between a siterubix website or my own domain website? In both cases I have a website, right? If I go premium and than after a month or two I stop the premium, what happens to the domain?
Thanks,
Daniel
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Since you're premium, it's highly recommended that you move your website to a .com. You can stay on Siterubix, but the .com will perform better in the long run.

If you purchase a domain and build a website using WA hosting, you own the domain and the content! If at some point you cancel, you can still retain all this stuff.

The domain can stay with WA as your registrar, and you can access it at any time using your regular login. Go to SiteDomains to manage it there, just like any other domain registrar. You are also free to move the domain to a new registrar if you want, but will then be subject to their fees like SSL fees, Privacy Fees, and extra renewal fees.

As for the content, you'll need to move that to another host. Since WA will not longer be your host (and cannot host content for free), you can choose one of the many other choices for hosts out there. Prices range from $10 - $250/month depending on how many websites you have and what level of service you choose.

A WordPress optimized host such as WA will probably cost between $25 - $50, and may limit the amount of traffic you're allowed to have on that plan. A multi-site hosting plan could cost $100/more per month depending on your traffic levels.

They also have cheaper hosts like Bluehost or Hostgator, but your "shared" hosting will be quite limited in my experience, and they often encourage your to upgrade each time you run into speed issues or crashing servers due to traffic spikes (again, in my own experience)

Just another doubt, this was not clear for me in the lessons: it´s not right to take images from Google Images, for example, and put them into my website, right?

But is it possible to take screenshots of anything and put them? It was not clear to me what I can or cannot put, related to images.

Thanks a lot! And have a great weekend!
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Correct, you cannot take from Google images. You cannot screenshot images as an "image", ie just copy the image. But if you are taking a screenshot of something in greater context, then it's OK.

For example, you cannot just take a picture of a mushroom picture and claim it to be your own. But you can take a picture of several pictures together to make some kind of point, like "look at the google image search when you type in mushrooms. They only show a few common ones, but there are actually thousands of different types in the world"

Let me know if that makes sense.

Here are some other image resources you can use as well:

Is it ok if I create a page to talk about this class and "sell" it? Or Google will identify it and not ranking me?

You don't need an SEO plugin to do this.

WA only offers .com/org/net, so if you want the .co.uk domain, you will need to get that from somewhere like Namecheap.com

There, you can do a permanent redirect from a .com to another domain within their domain dashboard. (you need to buy the .com too!)

Alternatively, you could buy the .com at WA, then the .co.uk at namecheap, and use a 301 redirect: Let me know if those methods work for you!

Hey Nathaniell:

So I've decided to go down the road of self-development. I tried to break it down into some sub-niches that interest me. Can you give me some feedback on these and let me know which you think may still be too broad and need narrowing down:

- Motivation
- Public Speaking
- Self-Esteem
- Stress Management
- Financial Success
- Happiness
- Hypnosis
- Anxiety & Depression
- Communication & Social Skills
- Neuro Linguistic Programming NLP (is this too narrow?)
- Personal Transformation
- Spirituality

Any advice you could offer would be greatly appreciated!
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Those are all possible niches, though most are too broad to be very focused. "Happiness" is the best example of this. It would be impossible to cover so many topics about how to be happy without hiring a team of 100 writers.

Hypnosis would be the most targeted, since it has a clear set of goals, and what type of person that may be interested in this topic.

You can modify some by thinking about WHO would be interested in the topic and in what capacity. For example, Anxiety & Depression could be

natural cures for anxiety and depression
how to help your child with anxiety and depression
solutions for anxiety and depression in men

I suggest you sit down and think about what topic would be most interesting for you to research and write about on a daily basis. What do you want to learn most about and help people with?

Hello Nathaniell:

Thanks for your response and suggestions. I've been scratching my head with a bit of indecision here. I was leaning toward the Anxiety and Depression niche. I wanted to focus on natural remedies, techniques, and books that could alleviate or eliminate these conditions. However, I am a bit concerned about the monetization aspect. I'm not sure about the fragile mental state of potential customers coming to the website. Will they be motivated to actually buy anything? Will they view the ads or other monetization techniques as me trying to take advantage, or make money from their misery. I picked this niche because I have struggled with these issues in my life. At the same time, I also feel that I don't fit the typical bill of a sufferer who may just want a "quick fix" or is overly negative. I mean, I can certainly understand why a sufferer feels the way he/she does, but I also wouldn't want my blog to turn into a cesspool of negative and "downer" comments. I don't know if that makes any sense.

So as an alternative, I was also considering something in the "brain training." A website dedicated to ways of improving various aspects of the brain, such as concentration, focus, and other cognitive functions. I started doing some research into this niche and, lo-and-behold...I ran into an article you wrote on the nootropics niche. It was very informative and insightful. I agree that it is probably too new to get into, but I wanted to know what you thought about eh "brain training" or "brain health" niche. I really don't know what the best name for it would be or how to narrow it down into something manageable and profitable.

I know this has been a little long-winded, but I appreciate any help or advice you can offer.
Thanks!

If it is a product you are promoting, why are you insulting them, even in absentia, when you must not have had enough information on the site to explain it to them?

If the comment is from another WA member, well, shame on us for this type of comment!

Hey Nathaniell! Thanks for following. It's so awesome to see you so active in the community and actually answering questions! Honestly, the legendary support system that everyone talks about is the main reason I joined WA. I know I have the potential, but I get discouraged and distracted easily. But maybe with the support and training I could actually carve some space out here for myself. I do have a question. It looks like most of the training videos are done using the desktop version. Is it possible to utilize the site using only my phone? Right now I don't have a laptop. If need be, I can just go to the library and use the computers there. Is that necessary?

If you do get discouraged any time, reach out to the community. Every single person that has experienced success here has been discouraged at some point.

You can watch the videos on your phone, but to build your business is pretty much necessary to have access to a computer. You'll be doing a lot of writing, and although WA works alright on mobile, WordPress is very frustrating to use on mobile, if not impossible. I would plan on spending at least an hour at the computer each day, so if you can swing that, you'll be alright.

But it will take time to make money. With just an hour per day, you could be looking at 6 months to a year before you make any money online. Just wanted to make sure you have realistic expectations before you sign up!

Hello there Nathaniell. I appreciate you checking in on me as I've been a little bit slow here to get started. I dont have a question right now really other than is there a yearly subscription option? Besides that, yes it is overwhelming but im excited about the resources and especially the community here.

Great man. So I've read people talking about a yearly subscription. Is this still available?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Yes, but it's only available after you subscribe for the first month. This way you can see all that WA offers first, with the very good discount ($19), then decide if you want to go yearly. That way you can be 100% sure it's something you want to do!

Hello Nathaniell,
I just started the program 1 week ago, I am on a project trying to promote traveling to my country and earning passive income by affiliate programs. Its my first time doing online business.
Would you check my instagram blog:
@mustmexico
I started a month ago and I have 7000 followers I think its having a good response.
And my webpage:
www.mustmexico.com
(That its cleary in progress and trying to understand a lot of things)
Can you give me your comments of the way I review the places, attractions, hotels, events and restaurants?

Another thing can you talk to me your most succesful online business that you have so I can see your website? And how long did it take to have an income over $2k monthly?

Hi Nathaniel,

I read all your articles that you posted on your website One More Cup of Coffee. I was amazed of all the information you provided.
Thank you very much.
I do have questions...as I am a newbie just 2 weeks now and I would like to know if I could send you my questions, since they are from after reading your articles.
Also, I am looking at getting a book on Affiliate Marketing and on Amazon their is tones of them.
Do you recommend a book?

Thank you.

Hey, I bought Divi about a week ago. Now that I'm at WA, I have a couple of questions:
Question Uno: Do I keep Divi, or try to get a refund?
Question Dos: I have MS and had to retire from teaching after 20 years. I purchased the domains: RockTheLesson & MarvelousMichigan (I write children's books under the heading "Marvelous Michigan!") I want to have a site that has lessons re: MS natural solutions, Elementary teaching, stained glass, writing, hawking my books...AM I'M "OVER-NICHED?"

Question Uno: I'd keep Divi if you like it. Premium themes like that can be fun to work with and make your site look more professional. I use Studiopress, but lots of people like Divi

Question Dos: Yes, that's too much for one website. You should make a website for each of these individually. Don't overwhelm yourself though. Maybe start with just one website for your biz, so the book website and one website for a "niche", i.e. the natural solutions for MS.

The Natural Solutions one will be the most work, since you'll need to write and update weekly. The book promo one can be a side project depending on how much time you have. You may want to focus on social media for that one (Level 4 training), but i think it will require less blogging!

Hello Nathaniell.

Couple days ago I send PM. Maybe is lost in traffic or you don't have time.

Nathaniel, your analytical skills to see problems is fantastic. I decided to ask you to tell me your impression, or help with solving my approach to monetize my effort.


My big negative drags are "writing post" 2 or 3 per week.
And be flexible to manipulate words and story to be innovative for google rank by google bing, yahoo, others.
More negatives drags are: shiny objects on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, and most social distractions...

Will you revue site?

or brand new approach and focus on 1 peculiar niche?

Hey Nathaniell,
Thanks for commenting on MOBE and then talking about WA. I'm joining with them in a couple of days And I couldn't have done it without your help. Thanks buddy.

(As an aside, I saw a Modesto address for your website. Used to work in Modesto, used to live in Stockton.)

Rock on, kiddo. Hope to learn a lot from you and WA.

Joe

Hi Nathaniell,

I seem to be banned from leaving comments in the comments section of SiteRubix, because 3 of them bounced before I realized that I wasn't understanding what is required of that comments section.

This is what it says: "We're sorry, too many of your previous comments have been reported as spam, being inappropriate, or low quality. You do not have the ability to leave further comments."

How do I reinstate my ability to leave - and earn - comments? Any chance I can have a re-do or is this it forever?

Thanks.

Hm, I'm sure there's a way to get back into the system, although I'm not sure what the process is. I think the best option would be to contact Kyle.

In the meantime, focus on creating content for your website since that's going to be more important long term. Comments is a "side goal" to start engagement. It doesn't guarantee rank or income. Creating content is what leads to authority, rank, clicks, and sales.

Ok thank you.

I posted to Kyle's page and will see what he says. In the meantime, I've been working on keywords and searching the keywords that would work with posts already created. To that end, I've moved some posts around, changed titles and added the Long-tail keywords into the 1st paragraph of each post.
Would you mind taking a quick look and let me know if anything jumps out at you...?

I'm having trouble with the socializer plug-in. Would you suggest anything better and easier to handle?
Thanks so much,

Looks like a great keyword and proper placement you have on this page: https://natureshealingstrategies.com/teeccino-caffeine-free-herbal-coffee-review

Also, it's an interesting topic! Great choice for a review.

One recommendation is to keep your images to a uniform alignment. Different screen sizes, plus mobile devices, means that they may become jumbled, making text hard to read on some devices. Here's how I handle images:

Hi Nathaniell, thanks for reaching out. I'd highly appreciate it if you could assess this site for me once I have upgraded by Monday? I haven't made any success with it and yet I have the perception that something can be done to turn it around short of launching a new site off its back.

I thought of going through the 10 lessons first, but then it's better for me to know now where I am going before researching a different niche.

What's the site?

Generally, I would recommend starting with a new site through WA's training even if you currently have a site. Many other programs teach "shortcuts" which can hurt your business long term. Although, I don't know what the type of site you have right now is.

You can post your link like mywebsite dot com

Hi Nathaniell,
I'm freaking out because I've gotten 2 rejected comments in the past week. I'm not sure what I'm missing.
So this section is to leave a relevant comment about the website from a content perspective? Are we commenting on the whole site? Where does it say which part of the site the owner wants us to look at...?
Thanks so much,
Amy

The comment should be a repsonse to the post topic. So you are commenting as if you were searching for the topic and read the post.

It should not be a "website review", meaning you don't need to say things like

"this was an interesting topic"
"great layout"
"I think this will sell well"

Stuff like that.

You should respond to the post in a way that's relevant to the subject, at least feigning interest. I have a lot of comments saying "I've never heard of this before" and it's pretty annoying because it seems obvious the comments are from people coming there from WA instead of from Google.

Comments should also be at least a few sentences long. Sometimes I receive comments that are several paragraphs long, and those are the best.

Hello Nathaniell,

Thank you for all the support in the process thus far. I have set up my first website. Still a work in progress.

Slow and steady wins the race. I want to do this right.

I like the training so far and really like the community, I tried to upgrade to Premium but since its a Canada based company my bank would not allow the transaction. I am waiting for my updated credit card in the mail.

I have a good feeling about Wealth Affiliate, you get out what you put in. I was never one of those people that thought all life is, is work and home repeatedly til you die. I want to work so I can enjoy life with my family. Not work paycheck to paycheck. Whatever happened to the American Dream. It still exists you just have to be brave enough to take a chance.

I would love your input about my niche. I know personally I am a movie buff. I personally own over 5,000 movies and I have recently been introduced to VUDU. I would love to appeal to this market.

I know I am technically not there yet in the training but I did just a tenitive affiliate search for movie related sites and I think I am going to be happy with my niche.

There are quite a few options available to me. I am so excited.

Do think that movies is to broad of a market?

Should I narrow it down a little?

Thanks for the time you took to read my long ramble.

Elleri

Movies is a great start, but maybe something more specific related to your interests. Classics? Horror? It's possible to do just a "movie buff" thing, but would take time to establish authority on "everything". But there are many options for movie affiliate programs out there as competition heats up, so whichever path you choose, you'll find a way to monetize it.

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!
