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.

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

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. On my tablet I can't seem to go and review videos I already watched unless I watch it in its entirety. I'm think I have my niche but unsure with the jazzy search if it would be worth it.

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!

Hi Nathaniel. While researching for our first web site niche (pet related) we came across your website, One More Cup of Coffee. We just wanted to let you know how grateful we are for all the information you shred so willingly and what a great inspiration it is to us. Thank you so much.

Hi Nathaniell - I recently joined WA and I am currently going thru the training on creating a niche. I came across your website "One More Cup of Coffee" and read your blog on the Christian Niche, really enjoyed reading your post, it inspired me to move ahead on my Christian niche. Appreciate all the information you provided, it was very helpful. Just wanted to say thank you and it was also great to see that you are a WA member!

I have been up all night and don't believe I have made much forward progress, but I did keep working on it. I read a lot and wrote some. Can you see my page from where I started my website? I would like to get your opinion of what I wrote. It is sort of a lead in to where I want to take my site, but I need to pull in some traffic first and I thought this might help. I am falling asleep, so I think I will crash. Guess I am sleeping in this morning. LOL
Glad you are here to talk to.

Great work so far M. Work through the courses as you have time and don't fall asleep at the keyboard LOL. As long as you are taking consistent action, you're on the right course.

I can't see your website unless you post a link here. Reply with the link, and I'll take a look! You can find your site in the site manager area: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites

here is my issue, I have a website outside of WA hair extensions it up and running so I decided to upgrade so I can understand how to build a website and so on. it up and running right but since it new how long will it take and where am I at on the pages of google I just stumble on sumo and added there tools the facebook google instant gram pointers etc so what happen when I set it up for instant facebook there will be a link that I'm creating for friend family etc know that I'm in business can you explain the process. 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?

when accessing my website I click on the site rubix next click on the site manage site /health next log in where I'm in the wordpress dashboard at this point I'm lost there is something maybe I'm not getting regarding the SEO the 2 plugins I did activate them just not sure plus I did write in my about page but can't find the content earlier on I believe I created it again If you can help me to see if I can at least have someone check the site out is it working? can I give someone right down the URL? Believe I still need to navigate the the WAsite and take my time thank you

What are you trying to do in the SEO Plugins? If you follow the instructions in this video, you don't have to do much after that: For your website URL, I cannot see that. You'll be able to find your website URL in your site manager area: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites

From there, you can copy/paste here and i can then view your website!

I hope this helps Janice!

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

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!

Nathaniell, way back in 2014 before I joined WA, I researched one of the edu programs. I found a scam report of yours on One More ... It was in November that I found the site. I checked out your site and can't find it there.

The reason I am asking is, I can't remember the name of it and if it still exists I want to do a scam report on it from my, very little, exposure to it.

It was a classic scare scam and I know lots of people caught by these. Needless to say I didn't.

Thanks for encouragement and advice. Very glad i found you through google promoting wealthy affiliate. I've wasted tons of time looking into work from home training and luckily never bought into them. The option to learn and take your time to feel comfortable before investing money is great. Looking forward to promoting wealthy affiliate myself and building my first website.

I am procrastinating with my niche though. Even though its stressed not to. Any advice?

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!

Can't believe that it's almost a year ago I reached out to you. My wife seems to be getting better from her Leukemia during these past 15 months. I hope I can now have some free moments for my site.
I'm holding back in uploading content on this site: clearadultacne.com. Reason is that I have duplicate content appearing at the bottom of the page. I'd appreciate it if you could cite where I went astray and how I can delete those extra pages. I'm prepared to start afresh if this issue is not simple to solve.

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:

Hey Nathaniel! What's funny is that I learned about you through your One More Cup of Joe website when I was looking around on how to make money with a gaming website (which I have started already).

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

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!

nathaniell Premium
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.

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?

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?

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 have done a review of Affilorama, daunting task but did it anyway in my research I came across your review and that made it more daunting, I do not know if your critique reviews but I am sure your will let me know.
The main reason for this message is i became a free member of Affilorama and tried to get an affiliate link but they are asking for my URL and PPC ID How do I get a PPC ID
Thanks Geoff

Hi, Nathaniell.
Hope all is well.
I am working on building my own website.
I would like to integrate my website with third party APIs such as Amazon and customize theme.
In order to do that I have to access to source code of website.
But I'm not sure how I can.

Is nice reading someone like you at this time on my life, I'm from Mexico and I was a manager of a café, earning 300 dollars per month, willing to grow up and earn more money.
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. But time is money.

so I'm really excited for start this journey and learn from people like you.

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.

No problem Steven. I log onto WA every day to check my messages so I'll be looking out for you :)

I'm glad my review sparked your interest. You'll be able to build a website here about anything you want. It could be about essential oils, alternative medicine, skin care, or a completely unrelated interest you have that you think might provide you with more long-term interest.

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. I really would love to promote WA but i only see paypal as a payment option and where i'm from it's a bit difficult working with paypal. 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.

I renewed my premium subscription today after being off of it for 3 months. I need help. If you renew your membership with a lapse, do you lose all the information from your website? I put in a lot of work into it. I had personal issues that I overcame to be able to get back to WA. I would hate to know I have reenter all the information I put in. When I go to look at my site, it says the security is down and so is my site. How do I fix it? Thank you

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

WA recently added a bunch of new features too, so I'd skim the beginner lessons to learn about things like the FreeSSL (site security), and how to set that up.

Let me know if you have any trouble in the meantime!

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:

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..

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)

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

If I can save up over the next 2 months and get the the $19 for the first month, but I can't make the next months payment...then what will occur to my sites that I get built? I've checked all my moneys coming in, and at the end of the month I have $13 left! I've got 6 days left it says to chat with you, and to try to get this figured out...

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?
Thanks in advance.....Rob

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.

Hey Nathaniell! I starting WA a few months ago and admit I have not put enough work in through about half of the time. I often feel stuck and that I need some pointers on how I can improve my website and/or niche so that I really start making gains in traffic and revenue. Is this something you can help me through?

Hey Nate my man, thanks for the welcoming message on my wall. I'd like to transfer my sites to WA but not sure how to do that. I started the blog on January and have left it idle as I just can't commit enough time for it - BUT now, I'm back for good and I am ready to fire it up once again!

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.

Regards
Kenny

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!

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:
