About Nathaniell
Joined June 2010
I started internet marketing while living in China. The idea was that I could make American money while in China, and arbitrage my lifestyle. 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. 10 years later, I'm still doing this affiliate blogging thing, and active inside the Wealthy Affiliate community helping others do the same!

There's still a lot I don't know about affiliate 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 truly believe that anyone can "make it" in this space and that any website can make money if you put in consistent work and follow through.

Hi- I have decided to pay the year in full. Could you send me the link?
Next, I have decided upon a theme, Kid's Camp by Catch themes. (updated this week) I watched the training video on selecting a theme. It talks about wants and needs. I need a lot of nice photos on my pages because of the arts industry. I may need help in customizing and they have people to do that at Catch Themes However, I do not know if they speak English and I was hoping to learn it here. Is there training on how to use a page builder (elementor is what I am hearing) or anything a little more advanced than the 30 second setup described? If not, are there people for hire that could assist that know Wordpress Theme cusomization? I understand the value of the simplicity and I will use that type for my second niche. I have figured that out as well. 2 niches that I know a lot about should keep me as busy as I would like to be!
Next, should I buy the 2 dot com domains I want to use right away? I am thinking that this is the order of things: 1) pay the yearly rate 2) buy my 2 domains 3) download my desired template
Please let me know. Thank you very much! I also have a friend or 2 that might want to join WA. Tell me how that works please

That's great to hear Laura. :) To upgrade to yearly, you should see a big red button somewhere on your Wealthy Affiliate dashboard which says "Go Yearly" or something similar.

If not, you can try this link: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/upgrade

When you upgrade, you'll still be my referral, so you do not need to click any special link, and you will still be able to contact me with any questions or issues you have for the next FULL YEAR. Amazing!

I'm really happy to hear that you are committing to your business like this, and giving yourself enough time to see long term results. You've got an incredible journey ahead of you, and I'm looking forward to help you achieve your goals.

PS. In case that upgrade link doesn't work for some reason, the next step would be to check your payment settings in your account here:


And if that still doesn't work, then this may be something specific to your account, in which case you should contact Kyle via Private Message, and he can solve any billing issues.


Let me know how things go! When you upgrade to Yearly, you'll also get a special bonus via Private Message from me, so keep an eye out for that.

In reference to your website template question, there are 10's of thousands of free themes available right inside WordPress, and even more available from private companies (at a cost, usually around $20 - $100). Here's a detailed webinar walkthrough on how to change your WordPress theme: Here's a much shorter version created by another WA member: The good stuff starts at 3:15

As a side note, here are some tips on how to pick a great, simple theme for your website: Regarding your domain question, it really up to you how you want to go about this. This is a common question! Lots of people think that the best way to create income online is to have multiple niche websites generating a little bit of income. It sounds fun, or stable, but it really sucks IMO.

I had about 60 websites at one point. It was too crazy. I've whittled it down to about 3 now. For a beginner, my advice is to focus on just one so you can learn everything and not make the same mistake across several websites.

The main point I want to make is that if a websites makes $1, it can probably make $1000. For me, I've learned that I'd rather focus on one thing and do it really well than do 10 things not-so-well.

...If you want to refer friends and family to WA, or share your link on social media, via email, or just through a text message.

Your affiliate link is here on this page: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/share

Starter members earn 25%. Premium members earn 50%.

My advice would be to double check they are actually your referral before they go Premium. You can see your list of referrals here. It might take a few minutes to show up. I just say that because some folks are not familiar with the whole "affiliate marketing" thing yet, so they may click your link on a phone, but then sign up using their computer, or a different browser, in which case you wouldn't get credit for the sale!


Taking this journey of starting an online business is a lot easier when you have support, and if you have people in your circle who want to take that journey with you, awesome. You can support and teach each other along the way, along with the incredible support you'll receive from myself and the rest of the Wealthy Affiliate community.

Plus, you'll earn recurring commissions from their membership fees, so that'll take care of all the funding you need to run your own business with just 2-3 Premium signups!

PS. I hope I covered all your questions. I know this is a lot of information, so feel free to reach out with any additional questions you may have, Laura!

Hello Nathaniell,

You know I was a member here quite some time ago, but I never complete goals. I hope you can help me complete on task, this time around.

Nathaniell I have domain, but I don't have a website, my domain is on the sport of golf. Also Nathaniell I have to be honest, I don't know anything about Bloggging.
Good afternoon! I just signed up today and wanted to introduce myself. My name is Robbie Grow and I am a graduate student at Bloomsburg University. I actually found out about this when I was reading your reviews on the acorns and stash apps. The reason i am here is basically because with our current economic situation I want to be able to be safe in knowing that I will be able to take care of myself in the future. I also am trying to be able to put myself through school. I appreciate any time you will take to help me out and get started, I am ready to commit to something new here as it will only help me grow as a person. Thank you!

Great to finally meet you Robbie! I think you're really going to enjoy the training here at Wealthy Affiliate, and if you stick with it, you WILL see results. I'm a very active member here, so you'll definitely see me around from time to time, and I'm looking forward to helping you grow your affiliate business!

Enjoy the journey, Robbie!

Hi Nathaniell! I don't know if you guys do this or not but would you or someone be willing to look over my site and make sure I'm doing this correctly? I didn't end up creating my website with you guys, I already had a Wix premium website running that I transferred to a new site for free.

I had read somewhere that you should try and get an initial 30 articles written to help build your site as an authority. So I've been doing that as much as I could over the past 2 weeks but I want to make sure I'm doing it right before I get too far.

I'm hoping that you could do 2 things for me, review my overall site, and also read a couple of articles and let me know any advice you might have on them.

I've been getting views on my articles by posting them to Facebook and boosting a couple of my posts. It's getting me visitors but not many affiliate clicks and I haven't made any sales. I'm not a good marketer so I'm hoping that's my issue but I'd be grateful if you can tell me whether it might be my site or articles that are the problem.

Here is my site: http://www.tech-frontier.net

Thank you!

Hey Austin! Writing a bunch of articles for a new website is definitely something that can help you establish authority. 30 isn't a magic number though, and it really depends on the quality of the content you produce. In fact, I just wrote about that today: Personally, I would not invest my time into building a Wix website. WordPress is where it's at. You can do as you please, but working on Wix kind of locks you into their limited platform, while WordPress is much more versatile since it's open source.

Overall, you content looks awesome so far. It's well structured, easy to read, and you have some great pictures there too. That part is doing well.

However, the topics are quite broad, and your niche as a whole is quite broad. "Tech" will be hard to tackle. You could do a individual website about bluetooth speakers or website about smart watches, but instead you have both on the same site. It's definitely possible to grow a site like this, but it just takes longer and more work since the topics you could cover to gain "authority" are so diverse.

My advice would be to narrow your focus on a specific niche within the tech world.

I'm sure you have some follow up questions after all that. Shoot me a PM and I can continue to help!

I have a quick question about your last response to me. I was asking about purchasing a .com and you were telling me about upgrading to premium so I can get all the benefits WA has to offer. I did upgrade to premium, but in the video talking about paying for a whole year Kyle said that 1 free .com would come with it. I thought you said I would get my .com if I upgraded to premium.
nathaniell Premium Plus
All of the work you do now on the free Starter website will be saved and you'll continue to work on the same stuff as a Premium member. You won't lose any content!

The only thing that will happen is that when you go Premium and start on Level 2 of your training, Kyle will have you "move" your free site to a new .com domain name. All of your work, and the look of the site will be exactly the same. Just the URL will change.

You'll then continue working on your official .com affiliate website!

The process is very easy, and done with just a click of a button. Kyle will show you how!
