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! Just thought I'd drop you a line...I was researching some niche ideas (in toys) and found one of your sites! Without knowing you were a WA, I looked around and saw your affiliate promo. Looks great, by the way! So you really went to 6 figures in two years? good for you :)

Hi Nathaniel! I am doing well- I actually have no idea how I got on your mailing list but I have been for a while and thought I would check it out! I am a school psychologist- I have tried some different things online but this looks like something that could be easily utilized. I live in Vancouver WA :)

Haha. It's funny how many people end up on my list and don't know how. I can't figure out how it happens LOL

WA can definitely work for you. Keep me in the loop with your progress, and I'll be around to help out!

Hi Nathaniel, thanks for checking in with me! I haven't had time to start the tasks yet, but I'll most likely begin tonight after work! Thinking about my niche for a while; I keep coming back to vaping and everything related, though I always assumed it was an over saturated market. Would love to hear your thoughts and opinions regarding vaping if you have any!

nathaniell Premium
Vaping is popular, and even growing. I think it's a great niche to go into, as long as you have some knowledge about it. If you are testing these products yourself, even better.

You should never worry about competition, because if there is competition, it means that people are making money there. Also, you should understand that you are starting out as a beginner right now, but with time and focus, you will become an expert in this niche. It may look like you can't compete with the "professionals" right now, but you will be able to...that's what the WA training will teach you.

Building a business has to start from a beginning point. Your site may look a bit boring in the beginning, and it may seem like a tough task ahead to join a competitive market, but there's always room in any industry for passionate, knowledgable, and engaging business owners.

Thanks for the advice. I would say that my vape knowledge is extensive, ranging from hardware functionality and popular types of vapes, to the physics and safety precautions, to building and wicking rebuildable atomizers.

I probably spend more money than I admittedly should every month or so on vape-related products - e-juice, a vape mod I wanted before that's on sale, random other doodads. My desk is littered with vape gear, and although I've thought of writing reviews/articles or creating a YouTube Channel, I presumed that it would be a waste of time as all that I know came from channels already existing and popular; I'd be simply regurgitating the same information.

But the one greatest tip I've received so far, from here at WA and other blogs, is to permit yourself to join the competition, not disqualify and withdraw before you even enter.

Appreciate the motivation. I feel better about starting my own website and believing I can succeed.

Dang - then you should definitely do a vape site! In a couple years, it's absolutely possible for you to be one of the top 20 or top 10 vape blogs in the world. I'm not even kidding or exaggerating.

Hi Nathaniell! How are you? Honestly I really don't know how to start with this affiliation world. I'm afraid to invest money and don't get anything back. I'm studying, but I think it's really difficult to get the right Traffic and good conversions.

I would like to move on, but i would like to be sure that this can really work for me.

Thank you

Affiliate marketing works. People earn great income doing affiliate sales. Wealthy Affiliate simply teaches you how to do that, so you're investing into an EDUCATION.

Kyle has spent some time breaking down the process in the most simplistic way possible. Success online is at the core a 4 step process and he have broken them down within this video: Broken, down, the process looks like this:

Step 1: Choose your niche
Step 2: Build your website/content
Step 3: Get rankings in search engines (leads to traffic)
Step 4: Monetize your traffic

This applies in absolutely every niche and as you work through the training here at WA, you are going to be walked through this exact process. This is fundamental for ANY success online.

As you go through the training here you are going to learn the process of creating a business online. I look forward to seeing your business come together.

If you have any further questions let me know Emanuela.

Hi Nathaniell,
I would like to know if I change the theme on my site that has been indexed, will it break the link to google. I don't like the appearance of my site but I don't want to lose the connection to google.
Thanks for any help you can give me.
Carolyn

nathaniell Premium
Changing your theme is not a problem, and it will not cause issues with Google. There is no "best" theme out there - it's all a matter of taste. That being said, I always recommend you start with something simple. White background with black text is the way to go. Choose a simple homepage that displays your blog roll, a top menu, and the sidebar. That's it!

Everything else is pretty much a distraction at this point.

Here's just a few simple themes I found that I like, but there are thousands more out there.

Hi Nathan, I registered with ClickBank University initially in order to become an affiliate marketer the up sell is a little expensive more me at the moment & the membership is costing me AU$75 a month. I have been felling a little disparaged at the initial investment expenses including hosting prices. Is there a greater budget conscious opportunity available with WA?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
WA's a great choice because for $49 USD per month, you get training AND hosting.

Cheaper hosting exists (about $5 USD per month), but it's not very high quality, and there's no training involved.

Hi, Nathaniell, I was searching for affiliate marketing for martial arts equipment and came upon your website https://onemorecupof-coffee.com/martial-arts-affiliate-niche-research/
It wasn't too surprising to see a WA member had built the site. I love it. Thanks for the long list of affiliates, and the key words.

I am building a site www.thebestinselfdefense.com

Hello Nathaniell, I'm pretty good thank you, and you? So i'm gonna be honest, the only thing that i know about affiliate marketing is that it is about promoting products and i find it quite interesting because as I personally see, 99% percent of the internet purchases are through that, but i have no clue about how to apply it. So if i am correct you are here to guide me somehow and i will work for you?

You aren't working for me - you'll be building your own website, and your own business! I'm just the person who referred you to Wealthy Affiliate, so I make myself available to answer your questions and help you when you get stuck with the training. The whole community helps with that, but I have 8 years experience doing this, and can provide a lot of personal insight as well.

Don't worry, we were all newbies at one point along the way George. You are going to get the hang of this and as you move through the training, things are really going to start to fall in place for you. :)

I look forward to working with you and simply drop me a reply if you ever need a hand with anything.

Hi Nathaniell!

I'm excited to start making money online. I've been interested in doing something like this for a long time, but I think I've been nervous to jump in and potentially fail.

Nathaniell, great to finally chat !!! Thx for the encouragement!

My first question is, do I have to be on premium to purchase one of those .com/.org website domains through WA? or can i do that while starting out on the WA free account???? I do plan to go to premium but while Im doing the first 10 trainings and while Im building a site I really want that to be a more potent .com type website - not a siterubix site - does that make sense? or is a siterubix ok - I dont want to have to rebuild my main site on health & nutrition while Im starting out - I work full time and dont have much time but Im committing to the 1 hr a day at least 5 to 6 days a week.
Pls advise
Kind regards,
Bill H....
PSS Is there a black Friday promo on premium this year & how much????
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Yes, you'll need to be premium to do the .com thing here. On the free membership, you'll be using the Siterubix subdomain.

Kyle will show you this in level 2, and you can move all your content from the free website to the paid one with a simple button click. All the content remains the same, though you may have to change the domain name depending on what's available for .com names.

And yes, Black Friday is coming up, and yearly will be $299! It's a huge discount!
Reply
Hi Nathaniell, thx for the reply.
Just a reminder my first & main website will be heath supplements and nutrition based.
For this, which domain do think will work better?
abundanthealthandnutrition (dot) com
or
everythinghealthandnutrition (dot) com
or do you suggest a different one depending on availability.
Do I need a disclaimer when Im sharing benefits of certain supplements to other people with links to buy????
Can I copy and paste content about supplements from other websites into my website or do I have to type everything in myself manually?
Just getting prepared.
Kind regards,
Bill

nathaniell Premium
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: For disclaimers, yes, you should make a prominent announcement on your site that you are an affiliate, and that you are not a doctor and you are not giving medical advice (you can look up a better sounding disclaimer online). Basically make it clear that you're just a guy with a website and an opinion.

Also yes, you should type everything manually - no copy/paste!

Thank you so much for your encouraging story and for making me feel confident moving forward in the course. I am doing great, and I hope you are too!

Yes, this course is definitely the best I've ever taken, especially if you're a newbie. I've purchased and read hundreds, if not thousands over the years.

There are many ways to branch out later on, but for beginners, you can't beat the level of training and support offered by Wealthy Affiliate.

I am just starting this path of building a website. I started with Wix and got my domain name. Then was disappointed with their attitude toward an issue had had. So I have a domain name for 3 years paid for and have no clue what to do with it. Something about you all got my attention. So I am giving you a chance. Can you help with out emptying my bank?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Definitely Debbie! Just to be up front, WA is $49/month normally but you are currently on the free membership, which works great, but does have some limitations.

As for Wix, they aren't great for SEO, so I think you'll like using WordPress a lot more. You can keep your domain at Wix or move it here, it's up to you.

What are you trying to do with your website?

Yes, there will be competition, but if you get to know your niche, you'll find all kinds of little cracks where you can get your website to the top of page 1.

Yes, there's lots of competition out there, but there are millions and millions of searches every day, each one from a unique person typing a unique thing into Google. All of those searches are opportunities for your site to rank and help someone!

Hi Nathaniel! Thank you for reachingout to me. I am new to affiliate marketing; I have seen acquaintances of mine be successful wit this, and I thought it was time I gave it a try. I recently found out that I'm pregnant with my first child, so it's more important than ever for me to find multiple streams of income, and meaningful work that I can do from home. I think that I want my 'niche' to be pregnancy, with a focus on natural pregnancy and financial planning for women.

Nice to meet you Nathaniell. I have been through a few programs but something about this one got me to commit. How much will it cost to set up a domain. I did try to set up a web page on site ground but it crashed and I was unable to figure out how to get it up and running.
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Hey Eugene! It'll cost $13.99 for the domain, but you don't have to get that right now. You can do that if you decide to go Premium later. You can merge your current free site into the .com domain.

The site you set up that crashed - was it here on WA, or somewhere else?

If it's here on WA, you can just delete it and start over, or build your second freebie website.

Hey Nathaniell, Dave O.here Thanks much for referring me.So far so good,just getting started but I have a good level of confidence in my ability to learn/earn and am very motivated to succeed.For once I think I've found a money making program that isn't a pyramid scam or some other crap.You seem legit,so for now I'm going to trust my gut instinct and let you help me learn the ropes.I believe that there may,somewhere be a point of critical mass for how many people can simultaneously make money on the web,but I see so many different possible revenue streams,coupled with the expansion of the web it's self,that it would seem to me that the potential for financial gain is nearly unlimited.I look forward to working with you.

Hey...now that i've had a few days to think about it, i knew i would get overwhelmed with the idea of doing this. After reading your story about your website taking 3 years to become profitable and pouring 20k into developing it, i started to feel like, i am probably not committed enough to do that. Nor do i have much money. tell me honestly, can you get an affiliate selling website going using the basics stated here, paying extra for domain name and monthly sub. to keyword tool, i just don't get how else someone with little to no money can really make this happen. thanks

Keep in mind, that was a website I built with the idea of having other people do the work.

My first website cost me $0 to do because I did all the writing myself. Most people start that way, and building a profitable website is super cheap. You just need the domain ($14/year) and WA membership ($49/month)

Thanks...i appreciate the response. So, can you actually start making money once you have that site up and running, using just key word tool, don't you need to understand SEO and how on earth do you drive enough traffic when there are a billion people all trying to drive traffic using the same or similar keywords? Just trying to make some logical sense of this.

Hi Nathaniell, i have chosen a product to sell, and i'm wondering is it really necessary to write your own landing page when all the pages are provided by the product itself....i'm just starting to put together my website.....thx
Reply
nathaniell Premium
You have to add "value" before you send people to the vendor website. The website we build is not just an intermediary to capture sales. We have to figure out how to get people interested in the products we promote.

That's what the writing aspects is for (blogging). If you want to sell a coffee cup, we don't just say "Go buy coffee cups here", we write articles like "how to keep your coffee hot for longer" or "10 funny items to have around the workplace".

"Keywords" are basically the main idea for each of your article. If my keyword is "crazy pizza toppings", then the title of my article could be "Ten Crazy Pizza Toppings You've Never Heard Of", and my article will be about those crazy toppings.

Once you've chosen a few keywords, here's how you incorporate them into your website. Each article on your site should focus on one keyword.

Let me know if that clarifies things Olivia!

Hi Nathaniell, I tried logging into my website this morning, and I got a message saying "Your connection is not private." I sent a question into the community, and I got some answers but nothing worked. I am connected to SSL, I refreshed the page multiple times, and it still isn't allowing me to access the page. Any way you can help? Thanks!
Reply
nathaniell Premium
If you are logging in and it says "Connection Not Private", there are a couple ways to troubleshoot this.

First, go to your website manager area, click "Details", then turn SiteSSL ON. If it's already on, turn it OFF then ON again. See if turning "Extreme" ON/OFF changes anything as well.

Also, don't forget to clear your browser cache after each change to make sure you view the current changes, not the cached version. Make sure you're using the Chrome or Firefox browser (Chrome is better) as well.

After that, you can contact SiteSupport and see if they can fix the problem. If it's related to the hosting and SSL certificate, they can fix it: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/support

If they say that they are good on their end, you can view this training as well to find individual elements which could be breaking your SSL: Let me know if those solve it!

Just became a premium member. I know I mentioned a few niches. But I'm taking my time. I look at this as a graduate class in internet marketing, that is dirt cheap. Try getting this info at the Wharton School of Business, or any other university for $350 a year.LOL. Now that I'm a premium member I will be creating several websites as spaghetti on the wall practice before settling in on one niche. I'm interested in a lot of different stuff - from writing to bible studies to general marketing of products.

Also, Nathaniel your tutorials on "One More Cup of Coffee" have been very helpful.

Again, I'm taking this as a marathon and not a sprint.

Thank you for introducing your self, I'm alex. I just happened to read an article of yours About quick money making schemes online and became immediately interested in your story with wealthy affiliate program. I'm doing my research now with high hopes of effectively changing my life style and getting out of my comfort zone and everyday work habits. I've always wondered if this was a better way of living but i never knew how to do it. I hope with a little time and effort with this site I can start seeing things a little differently. Please if you have any advice for me right now i would appreciate it. To tell you a little bit about myself I'm nearly 24 years in december. I live in Georgia and I work at a local heating and air co auditioning company. It's not a bad trade to have but I over the years at this company I haven't seen much improvement in my pay even after the occasional 1$ -2$ /hour raise.

You are in a great position to make online marketing work for you Alexander. Since you've already got a job at the heating/air co, and are just looking for a change of work, you can take the slow approach to building your online business.

My suggestion is to spend just an hour or two per day to start, learn the ropes, and see where that takes you. You can always ramp things up later as you start to put some of the puzzle together.

I'll be back to check up on you - don't hesitate to reply to this message with any questions you have. I want to make sure you get started on the right foot.

I've read a few books about buisness and I found Anik Singal by chance, but he seemed a little bit fishy so I searched for reviews and found your site as the first site in google, one more cup coffee (really nice name ). I'm always a little bit skeptical while reading reviews of such 'gurus' but your's is really authentic, subjectiv and well written so I decided to read a few more articels and I stumbled over the Wealthy Affiliate review. Thank you for showing me the way to this site I will not waste this opportunity :)

Dude, if only I got my start at your age. I started out when I was 25 and an even earlier head start would have been awesome. If you take action on the training here and work hard at this Joel, you are going to see results.

Nice to meet you and do drop me a reply if you ever do need a hand with anything. :)

Buddy, you're in the right place and Nathaniell is awesome. He has stuck with me since I got here about 4 years ago!

Yeah Stu, imagine if you started when you were 18. You could mess around for 2-3 years and still have plenty of time to build your business for the next decade, and be set by the time you're 30!

Yup both of us started at similar ages. For me 27. It is crazy to think that at 18, 2-3 years is nothing. To think what I was doing at 18 can't really be written in this comment lol. Props to Joel for not messing around. It's very impressive that he's even here at all..

Hi Nathaniell,

Am so happy to hear from you.
I have read some stuff from your blog and signed up for your email list.

You can't imagine how much happy you i am that you wish to connect with me.

Right now am passing through a kind hard time with starting off as am trying to optimize my blog and sign up with an affiliate program.


I hope i can get to talk to you for more advises on how to go about it.

But i would wish to talk to you via either a mail like gmail or a messenger if you don't mind.

It's easier for me to write and send out over there.
I hope to explain more of what am passing though right now.

Once again, thanks.

Great to meet you Lyke!

I do try to answer my emails as much as possible, but I focus my support here in WA because this is where all the updated training is, and I can also see who's an active member, who's my referral, and point to trainings/lessons/support more easily.

In other words, this is where you'll get the fastest support.

Email is great, but it's also distracting, and can cut into my day so I only check it a few times per week!

Hello Nathaniell.. I have a questions regarding hosting you recommended in one of your trainings. You highly recommended WebSynthesis with StudioPress.

I checked them and looks like they start using WP Engine for their StudioPress themes. I use their theme Magazine Pro. I really like it but with my current hosting this theme has some issues with mobile speed because of prioritize visible content and other issues showed on PageSpeedTools.

Would you recommend WP Engine for hosting? Did you have a good experience with them? If yes, do they help to get a very fast mobile speed?

I would really appreciate any recommendations and help.

Thank you,

Tanya

WP Engine is alright, but pricey. I have moved to Kinsta since StudioPress changed to WP Engine.

I'm still having trouble with my niche Kyle. I'm going to sell commission about video games and talk about video games to how it started, where to point at and give good music on melodramatic songs on. I thought I would sell games by wealth affiliate, now I'm just confused.

You can promote video games and gear on your website. Did you build your website yet?

Kyle has spent some time breaking down the process in the most simplistic way possible. Success online is at the core a 4 step process and he have broken them down within this video: Broken, down, the process looks like this:

Step 1: Choose your niche
Step 2: Build your website/content
Step 3: Get rankings in search engines (leads to traffic)
Step 4: Monetize your traffic

This applies in absolutely every niche and as you work through the training here at WA, you are going to be walked through this exact process. This is fundamental for ANY success online.

As you go through the training here you are going to learn the process of creating a business online. I look forward to seeing your business come together.

Hello Nathaniell,

I have been turned down by Google Adsense twice now. The second time they sent me an email that said,

Unsupported Language: We've found that the majority of your site’s content is in a language we do not currently support. Right now, we're only able to offer language support and ad targeting for the languages listed in this help article. If you manage or own another site in one of our supported languages, feel free to resubmit your application as described below. While we look forward to supporting your language, we don't yet have a date as to when AdSense will be available for you.

Now my whole entire website is in English. I don't know any other languish. Do you have any idea what they are talking about.? Man this is frustrating.

Hello nathaniell I’m doing well and yourself ? I have two questions as I start my training so far , for the niche it can literally be anything ? And should you pick a niche that’s very competitive even though you know people will buy it and it will generate revenue?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Good angle on the competition thing. That's usually my go-to statement when people are worried about competition. "If there's competition, that means there's money to be made!".

Basically, you can get a small piece of a big pie or a big piece of a small pie. Stuff like weight loss and make money are competitive, but lucrative too.

Regarding your niche, yes, anything can work. You have to formulate your ideas though. "Mops" or "grass seed" isn't going to cut 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. 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!

Hi Nathaniell I am a newbie to online business with that being said I'm currently in a 14 day free trial with Shopify. This morning I was researching products to sell saw your link and now I am about to set up my profile. I love what I have seen so far with Wealth Affiliate. Unlike Shopify this program seems to guide newbies like myself more efficiently than what I've seen with Shopify. As I move forward I have a few more days to decide if I want to continue with Shopify so far I am not sure, I will be going through the training provided with Wealth Affiliates if you have any helpful thoughts for me please let me know.

Thanks so much!!

Sounds like a good plan Rachel!

Shopify is for creating an ecommerce website, so you'll need products to ship to customers, or maybe your own digital products that you produce and sell.

Wealthy Affiliate teaches affiliate marketing, where you promote products from other companies, and make a commission.

Hello Nathaniell.
I'm at a point in my training where its getting pretty hard to keep up my motivation because I keep running into brick walls. I know you don't have time to look at websites. But to let you know, I have put a lot of time in mine and I don't want to give up on it.

Here is the problem. Affiliate networks are really hard to get accepted into. Although I am a member of a few good ones, again it is really hard to get accepted by the merchants I'm trying to do business with. I don't know what the problem is. It cant be the content because I have a ton of it. Any advice on what to do? I'm at an impasse here. I really don't want to give up on this website and start over again.

Thanks,
Darryl
Reply
nathaniell Premium
If you are not accepted to affiliate programs, 99% of the time it's due to a lack of traffic to your website. The other 1% of the time it's because of quality issues, or that they think your site is not relevant.

For example, I've been rejected from many programs related to tax software, even though I use tax software to run my business and want to promote them on my website. But because my website isn't about taxes or finance, they reject me.

My suggestion for you would be to spend some time writing more content and getting your traffic built up. Get at least 50 visits a day, then revisit these affiliate programs.

Also, you may have been auto-rejected! Read this: If you really want to promote a specific company, many times they'll allow you to sign up just because they can see you are a real human, not a bot trying to spam affiliate links!

And don't forget, there's plenty of fish in the sea!

Hi Nathaneill
I've only just today come across your

I have a wonderful traffic-generating system
offered by Cliff Carrigan....

I was all set to set up an Am*z*n aff program
but they decided I wasn't a fit and proper
person for their system today.... so I
went back online.... and it looks as if
your WA sponsorship wins the day ;-)

Cliff's unique OTP software can create
any number of literally-unique websites in
my niche...so I am just going to dive into WA
to create an affiliate link.

Is there anything special I need to watch out
for in choosing a link or is WA all dead obvious?

My best advice at this point is to stick to the WA training! Kyle has lined out the lessons to get you started on the right foot and keep you on track. He'll help you get your business moving in the right direction, step by step.

You can always ask questions on the training modules to get answers from other members (including myself). You can also PM me any time with specific questions about the training or your website.

Regarding this "system" you mentioned, please be aware that WA is a promo-free zone, so you should not promote this system or any other products within the WA platform.

As for what WA teaches, Kyle has spent some time breaking down the process in the most simplistic way possible. Success online is at the core a 4 step process and he have broken them down within this video: Broken, down, the process looks like this:

Affiliate marketing is what WA teaches, and it's absolutely legitimate! There's millions of people that earn income this way every year, including myself. You are not required to sign up friends or promote anything you don't want to.

At the base level, you are just building a website, writing articles, and getting people to read those articles.

Hello Nathaniel can I ask you a question? Can I still earn revenue by implementing everything I learn in the starter account? Because my plan was to get my online busine3sss up and running and invest revenue earned onto the premium account so I can take my business to the next level
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Yes! It's definitely possible to make money on the starter membership Emmanuel. The website get ranked in Google, they can get traffic, and you can definitely join some affiliate programs just using the free websites provided to you inside Wealthy Affiliate.

However, keep in mind that premium features will help you see better results. You'll get more training, continued 1-on-1 support from other members, myself, and Kyle and Carson, Live Chat, premium hosting support, live webinars, etc etc. Not to mention you'll be working on your very own dot com.

If you plan to remain a starter member, you can absolutely make money without paying a dime. But it's going to require that you are a more independent learner, and very self motivated! There are over 500 free training modules inside WA as well - you just gotta search for them.

You can always upgrade at a later point when it's more convenient and you want a little more help building your business. It's a lot easier to earn when you have all the lessons, and the support of the Wealthy Affiliate community helping you out along the way.

Hi Nathaniell, I am doing well. Very interested in this opportunity. I had a major health event about 10 years ago and left me with some disability, so I have good days and slow days. I am needing to create a solid income and have been looking for something online. I have been in a few MLM/Direct Sales gigs, but the "hustle" is just not me. I can work hard but something about it doesn't click with me. Hoping this is more in line with my personality. Hope you are doing well too!

Good afternoon Nathaniell :) Recently I have felt dissatisfied and discontent with my life situation. I do not enjoy my job or my coworkers. It is frustrating! I have been desperately looking to find alternative options for myself. I've been looking into dog-sitting, house-sitting, selling things on ebay, writing blogs and website blurbs for businesses, amongst other possible options out there that I don't feel are up my alley such as doing social media marketing for businesses and writing a book and making money from it. It is crazy to say this, but I have been thankful for advertisements lately. The more I research ways to make money on my own or online, the more pop-ups I'm getting of people supporting and promoting this type of lifestyle I feel as though I would love to live. You mentioned community in the email I clicked on that offered for me to say hello, and community is the one thing I want and need so desperately. I want to find people who want to do more and be more. I can't keep living a boring, mundane lifestyle not making enough money to have even the simplest things I want such as my own pets! Thanks for the opportunity to say hello :) I pray that something good comes of all of my reaching out and searching! Have a wonderful evening :)

Hi Nathaniell, I'm only just finished with the first video in the first lesson, so I still have some ways to go. I sure hope that I can find my niche in relation to holistic/eco-friendly living and that it is affordable to start up, as that is the whole reason why i'm checking this out. I don't do well with face-to-face "energetic" customer service jobs (sadly i'm working one now and it's draining to me as a introverted person, but it pays me through my Masters degree), and I know that if I was in control of my own job situation, I would thrive. We'll see how things go, and thank you for checking in on me. : )

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!

I would love to be able to talk on the phone with all of my referrals, but there simply isn't enough time in the day to provide that level of support. If you need instant help, Live Chat is a great place to go.

Otherwise, you can definitely drop me a message on my profile, or respond to one of my comments, or private message me (if you're premium), and I'll get back to you with an answer ASAP!

Let me know if you have any troubles getting set up. I read your other message, and it sounds like you want to promote WA. I just wanted to let you know that promoting WA is not required! You can, and many people do, but the main course teaches you to build a website about any topic you want!

Thank you! Honestly, I'm a hard working man with a wife and 3 children (2 in- home) who struggles to make ends meet, living paycheck to paycheck. I've had enough of the "work to make someone else rich" model that has been proven to be the lie of the American dream. I have come to the understanding that in order to make a decent living within today's society, you need to work for self. That's the motivation that brought me here and yes, I may need quite a bit of instruction in order to make this happen. Can you help me?

WA is a great place to live your version of the American dream and work for yourself. It'll take some time to get there, but today is just step one of a big journey ahead.

Kyle has spent some time breaking down the process in the most simplistic way possible. Success online is at the core a 4 step process and he have broken them down within this video: Broken, down, the process looks like this:

Step 1: Choose your niche
Step 2: Build your website/content
Step 3: Get rankings in search engines (leads to traffic)
Step 4: Monetize your traffic

This applies in absolutely every niche and as you work through the training here at WA, you are going to be walked through this exact process. This is fundamental for ANY success online.

As you go through the training here you are going to learn the process of creating a business online. I look forward to seeing your business come together.

If you have any further questions let me know Demario.

Dear Nathaniell,
I feel honored and indeed....Privileged that you watched my Video, Yes, its fast pace, don't forget, YouTube video have a time "LIMIT" on my website, there are over a DOZEN more videos that step anyone thru, YES, its focus is to make MONEY, because evidently "Money is what makes the world go round"...LOL

I do have some questions about how this works (your website was very compelling):

Does everyone here have their websites hosted through WA? I just signed up for a year of webhosting elsewhere and already have 2 Wordpress websites started.

Also, as a newb (and this being my free 7 days), is there somewhere I can ask for advice about a couple of my website ideas?

I actually got started a couple of months ago but finding your page today (searching for "Amazon reviews for money") REALLY motivated me to move forward.

I know I can make money doing this, but it is a bit overwhelming...

Anyway, looking forward to your reply, thanks!

Hey Ceta!

Not everyone has their websites hosted here, but there are advantages to doing so.

Hosting at WA and at other places are both options. There are very few advantages to hosting outside WA, especially if you are a newbie and this is your first online business.

1. The main advantage to hosting at WA is that it's free. It's included with your membership and that means you don't have to add extra cost to running your business.

2. Setting your site up is easy. If you buy domains from WA too, it takes less that 5 minutes to get set up and working on your site.. You just buy the domain, and set up the website with a few button clicks.

You don't have to navigate to a cPanel, change your DNS settings, or wait for everything to hook up properly.

3. There are various free things included with your hosting and WA domains that cost extra money at other registrars and hosting services: 4. WA makes consistent efforts to increase site speed: This has not been my experience at other companies, which have one simple solution when you run into speed problems: upgrade to a better hosting plan

5. Access to tools to help you grow your site. Both SiteComments and SiteFeedback can help you improve your website and increase rank. You will not have access to this with outside hosting.

And remember, if you leave WA, you still retain ownership of your content and domain, so can move them later if you need to.

The only advantage to hosting outside WA as I see it would be if you specifically need type of hosting like VPS or WHM. If you decide you need that later, you can move your sites to that type of hosting.

As for discussing websites idea, you can ask me here, ask in live chat, or submit a question by clicking "Help Center", then "Ask A Question"

Nathaniell,
I am finding it hard to find an Affiliate program. For some reason they are rejecting me. I looked at Amazon their adds are too large I did not like them attached to each of my posts I only wanted them on my home page. Yes, I know there is a selection but it would not do as I asked. I signed in with CJ Affiliates but the one that requested my site is too large. I don't know how to select links or how to put them on my site. Help please. Thanks hope to talk to you soon.

I see you just joined a couple weeks ago. Are you already at the lesson where it's necessary to join affiliate programs?

I highly recommend you go through the courses in order. I'm not sure if you have an existing website you are adding links to, but adding affiliate links to a site with no content is setting yourself up for failure.

The courses have you create a website with content and traffic before doing any affiliate stuff. This is so you can build a strong foundation to your business before trying to make money from the site. A site with affiliate links and no content will have a hard time ranking, but a website with traffic coming in already can be monetized pretty well in just a few days.

Of course, it's your business and you can do as you please, but I just want to make sure you get started on the right foot, and don't skip ahead in the training.

Regarding getting rejected, it's likely an issue of lack of traffic, so you can spend some time building up your traffic before re-applying to an affiliate program.

Thanks for the message!

I’ve been wanting to learn about and get into affiliate marketing for years and have never taken the plunge. I’m expecting my fourth child in november and really want to build something that will allow me to stay at home with him that doesn’t chain me to my computer from 9-6 which my current work from Home job does (for not enough money, too).

I’m afraid of the time it will take and I’m afraid I’m not a good enough writer. I write for my current job, though, so I can’t be that bad LOL!

nathaniell Premium
I can totally appreciate you wanting to spend more time with your kids and work from home. It's a dream job that most people never really take action to make it a reality!

I can tell you that it is possible and the Internet presents this opportunity Starr. You can literally take any passion/interest that you may have and turn it into a full time business and we are going to teach you how to do this here at WA. It will require some work and dedication, but it is well worth it.

You have a community of support behind you, myself included. If you ever need anything or just want to say hi, simply reply to this. Would love to hear from you. :)

Hola NathaniellI'm just getting started and am having my doubts. One) I am absolutely broke and nothing is free...Two) yeah right. Is this gonna work for me?
The latter is obvious nerves and can be shaken off. The former is reality. Other than that I feel good about this, I have a few ideas for the website but the main one is my hobby, my "life saver," and something I think is getting big. So lets do this! Kevin
Reply
nathaniell Premium
The free sites on WA are absolutely able to make money. Check out this post form Dom with some great traffic stats: Any website with traffic can make money!

The main issue that I see is that most people that want to stay on the free membership until they make money are not truly motivated. They want results first, and only then will they put in the work. Of course not everyone is like that, but that's general vibe I get. "Show me the money then I'll try a little harder."

The folks that see the value in WA and really want to commit to growing their business tend to upgrade and move it to a .com. They are willing to put in the work BEFORE they see the money because they believe they can achieve their goals with Wealthy Affiliate training and support.

But for a motivated person, and an independent learner, there's no reason why a free Siterubix site couldn't make money. They get indexed in Google, they get traffic, and you are allowed to do affiliate promotions on them.

For your niche choice:

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!

Reply
nathaniell Premium
Are you writing in SiteContent or in the website dashboard? They are both ways you can publish. I prefer writing directly in WordPress, but many people here use SiteContent for publishing content.

Regarding the content of the about me page, it can be anything about YOU that you want to talk about. I usually make it personal and casual, but don't feel pressure to say anything private you don't want to be public!

I always relate it to my niche in some way. Why is this topic interesting to you? Why did you start a website about it? What do you hope to accomplish with the website?

People will be very curious about who you are. The About Me page is always one of the most popular pages on a website. Be sure to include a picture of yourself, and see if you can get one of you doing something related to your niche.

Hope this helps!

Hm, You should have unlimited searches for Jaaxy Lite within Wealthy affiliate. Have you tried using Jaaxy from the left sidebar?

Otherwise, if you want to sign up, I'd pick the same email you use to log into WA and attempt to create a Premium account using that.

There are several tiers to Jaaxy, which offer different amounts of data. The basic tier (Jaaxy Lite) is free with your WA membership.

I am stuck. I need help from my sponsor. Details below.

1. I made 3 domain name transfers from godaddy to WA following religiously all instructions given by godaddy & WA. I paid WA the full year each as required.
2. I forwarded the authorization codes and changed the DNS pointing to
Primary Nameserver: ns1.mywahosting.com
Secondary Nameserver: ns2.mywahosting.com
3. I verified with godaddy if successful & they said yes.
4. Creating my website at WA, I already made My Privacy Page and About Me pages at pinchball.com but when I tried to publish it won’t let me.
5. I tried contacting support@WA but it always lead me to the community with No solution. I contacted my sponsor & Kyle at WA for help.
6. I now want verification from WA as Kyle said, if the 3 domain name transfers were successful because every time I checked it says “pending transfer”, then “resend”, then ‘live”, then “order cancelled”
7. What is going on ???!!! I am stuck & can’t proceed with the WA Trg lessons!
8. My 3 domain names are: ( Fully paid one yr regn each at WA)
Pinchball.com
Freebasicstuff.com
Instantwallofame.com
9. I called to verify with godaddy several times AND they now said the process of the domain name transfer & the DNS switch to WA hosting takes 7 to 10 days – Not enough time & they expired!? They said I need to pay godaddy the domain name regn to restart the process which will cost me again. ???!!!
(I spent $2,000+ keeping & saving the 3 domain names for several years)
10. The BIG Question: What happened?
11. Can WA solve this situation?
12. If not, I already paid for 3 domain names regn. Can I just change the dot com to dot net to avoid all the ridiculous charges/expenses ($2,000+) to save money? AND continue with my Training at WA. Time is of the essence.

Hi Nathaniel,

Is that correct. If so, you have done well and I'd like to follow in your footsteps.

My first Question: I have been working on the website doing the lessons, and have been using a PC laptop.
I went to load everything onto a MAC Laptop and the formatting of the pages is all wrong.
Attached is what the login screen looks like on the mac.
The problem is obviously operator error, but I'm not sure how to fix it. Can you help with some idea.
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Great to meet you Rob!

That looks like an internet connection issue (timed out loading), or a browser issue. What are you using for a browser?

Try Chrome, since WA is optimized for this browser, though Firefox and Safari SHOULD work fine.

I use a Mac and have no problems, so I don't think it's the type of machine that's causing you issues.

I suppose it could also be some kind of firewall setting, since it looks like things are not loading properly, but I doubt that's the problem.

Let me know if the browser change works!

Hello Nathaniel, how are you?
As you know I started following your blog recently.
About myself. My name is Kavitha. I am living in New Jersey with my husband and 2 year old daughter.
I started a parenting blog last month. I joined few affiliate programs and posting blogs frequently. But I am unable to drive traffic to my blog. I am learning various methods from internet.
Reply
nathaniell Premium
How often are you posting?

Most of the time when people are not getting traffic after a few months, it's because of a lack of content. If you are posting just 1x per month, or just 300-400 words for higher competition phrases, then that will also mean low rankings, and low traffic.

Try writing a few 1000 word posts on some low competition phrases, and I think you'll start to see ranking and traffic improve. It's a slow going process for sure, but definitely works!

Volume of content makes a difference, especially in the beginning. You have to give Google a good reason to pay attention to your website! Establishing authority requires that you show you have knowledge about your subject.

Google's just a robot, so it understands data. In this case, words = data.

You can also check out these trainings to make sure all your SEO ducks are in a row: Keyword use and keyword competition can also be a factor! Make sure you are targeting low competition keywords and using them correctly:

Kyle will cover those in the lessons as you progress. Keep moving through the steps of the Online Entrepreneur Course!

Hi Nathaniell, I'm doing well. I'm just getting started with affiliate marketing.

Reply
nathaniell Premium
I haven't used Mautic, but I would advise against anything "automated", especially at the beginning. Many so-called automated systems do one of two things: 1) steal content from other people 2) spam messages to social profiles

I would say it's not possible to build a real, helpful, profitable business based on automation software! You can automate some processes, but that comes after you are familiar with those processes yourself, so you can accurately determine what's works and what doesn't as you automate those things.

Hi Nathaniel, I learned that 49$ is regular monthly premium membership, my question is, if I could not afford that per month, can I make it annual /quarterly etc. Just until I got my feet to do it monthly? And if so will I still have access to premium privileges if am paying otherwise?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Yes, you can pay yearly! It's $359/year, and you can find the upgrade settings in your billing area: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/home/my_profile

However, you'd have to pay that up front. You would not be able to use the Premium membership for a few months and then pay the yearly fee at the end of the cycle.

Let me know if that answers your questions Lovisa!

Dear Nathaniell,

I was able to update my payment information, but still see no way to cancel the yearly or annual billing cycle I am on and just pay for one month's Premium membership for now. I can't afford to pay the yearly cost now. Please advise; thank you.

nathaniell Premium
To go back to monthly, you have to cancel yearly. Go to account settings, then membership, then "Stop Billing & Cancel Membership". If it's not there, then maybe you canceled already? If there's confusion on whether or not you canceled, you should reach out to Kyle and he can confirm your account status.

Once yearly is canceled, you can sign up for monthly, and it will bill monthly when the yearly portion runs out.

HOW or where do I sign up for monthly?? When I attempt to cancel the yearly billing I have now, I don't see anything or anywhere that offers an option for being put back on to monthly billing. I have already asked Kyle and Carson, but you are the only one to answer me thus far. Thanks.

You have go through with canceling yearly first. It'll send you through the funnel, asking you to stay, but finish the canceling process. You won't lose access to your account, so don't worry.

Then you go to account settings and re-sign up.

Let me know if that works!

Hi, Nathaniell.
Here is the thing. I am trying to get a big brand name started and I could sure use your advice. My idea is, I'm about to get a LLC for a company called Moultrie Publishing. So all of my post/websites will go under that name. Is that the right way to do it or a different way? I already own the dot com and the gmail in that name.

Thanks,

You do not have to name your website the same thing as your LLC. You can get whatever domain you want, and still operate under your chosen LLC name. In fact, you do not have to incorporate to have an online business. If you want, you can just pay taxes under your personal name/SSN, then incorporate later.

LLCs are expensive in some states! In California it costs $800/year to register!

Your domain name should be descriptive about the niche you chose, i.e. the topic of your website. Have you picked your niche yet?

(food), dog toys, and dog health? Whats your thoughts on that?
Thanks,
Darryl Moultrie

Yes, it's OK to add content about dog nutrition. Some related topics will naturally flow together. However, I'd decide beforehand if you want to make dog nutrition a focus for your website, or just an occasional addition of content, so you can remain focused on the main topics you have for your website.

Greetings! I saw that you're a super helper today. My issue I am having that I haven't really found any information on is the actual content creation. I've been attempting to run a blog since 2013. They're actually my passion. Creating a community out of your passion. It's great. This is my nth time trying to create a blog but I can never seem to write. anything. I was wondering if you could point me in a direction to assist with that. I have a lot of ideas, but keeping the direct and making a simple niche that's been difficult and having the courage to actually write and post my thoughts. Any suggestions or tips? Thank you.

Writing a full article when you are just starting out can be a struggle. I know because I've been there! It used to take me a full day or two to complete a piece of content. But remember, that like anything else, you will get better with time.

You'll get better at thinking of ideas, better at typing, and better at publishing efficiently.

If you are struggling with ideas for content, here's a great training: If you have lots of ideas but just can't seem to get 500-1000 words, here's another training that can help. When writing content, always keep in mind that it's an opportunity to help a real, individual person searching for information online. Hopefully that can inspire you to write some great content!

Also remember that every article you write now, even though it won't rank well right away, will have a chance to rank well in the future. Sometimes stuff you write now won't rank because your site doesn't have "authority" (AKA it's too new). But a year down the road, when your site has authority, those old articles will get a boost in rank!

Hi Nathaniell,
I need some important help.
Today, I make some changes to my website. After I back up my files and export all my contents, I accidentally delete all my contents after I export all content and save them. I would like to know how to import my contents back.

Hi again Nathaniell, I am in the process of Adding Content, but when I click Websites and then click on Site Content, I get a page which is different (with a message: Streamline Your Writing for Ultimate Efficiency). I should be getting a page with $ Template: 1 Create a new template, 2 Private Policy, 3 Affiliate Disclosure and 4 About Me (this the one I need). What should I do?

Thank you

Have you tried to go to the next page? WA is always improving, so that could be a new message that displays. It sounds like the goal of the lesson is to write a piece of content for your website, so I would see if you can accomplish that.

Is the message preventing you from getting your content published?

Hi Nathaniell! Just checking in . I had joined WA when they first started, but didn’t have time to put anything into action.

Hey Nathaniell,
I have a question about multiple keywords in a blog post.. so say I want to talk about FLASLIGHTS (that use a specific specialty battery). Can I make a post with a main keyword relating to the topic of FLASHLIGHTS but then also add a keyword about the batteries (because they will already be discussed since they are specialty), then of course there is the keyword regarding those battery chargers. All of those items would naturally be in ONE blog post but there is a lot of information for each that one could use keywords for. OR would you make three different blog posts and hyperlink them to each other? I think that would really thin out the original post.

Any info greatly appreciated!

~Ed~
Reply
nathaniell Premium
You should focus on one keyword per post.

However, as you write naturally, other phrases will pop up, and you'll get possibly ranked for those as well. So if your keyword is "Waterproof camping flashlights", and you just happen to talk about how there's a cool cord to hang it from your belt, your post may come up for "camping flashlights hang from belt"

Don't worry about trying to stuff in multiple keywords per post though. It will muddle your message and dilute the focus of trying to rank for that one keyword.

Hello :)

I need some help.. My website is an Afrikaans book reviewing site and so I decided to include the blurb of the books I review in my posts. I realised that this can be seen as duplicate content by Google.

Is there a way around Google seeing this as such without reducing traffic, or should I omit the blurbs?

Thanks
Dom

Hello,
Even though that I am new to the website.

In one of the training, we get over the option to have the page not indexed in Google so, you will not have your content marked as duplicate.

It is best to put your duplicated content on a page and marked this page with the below options:

In the WordPress dashboard, go to the page and at the bottom, you should tick:

NOINDEX this page/post

NOFOLLOW this page/post

Including a blurb won't hurt your traffic, as long as the majority of your content is original. The duplicate content WILL prevent you from publishing through the WA SiteContent publisher, but you can add the blurb into your website manually by logging in: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites

Hi Nathaniell awesome to see u here !!
I m thinking out loud of plumber roles and selling videos n courses to let them be a master of this trade.

Main intention is that it can be used as a points system for work entry into the sought after countries like NZ Canada and Australia. So that makes it appeal to ppl keen to migrate and even for self enrichment picking up hands on skill set.

Does affiliate works in this situation n u think audience will go for it?

Hi Nathaniell,

I'll be learning how to build my website later today - that's where I am in the training course. I'm just wondering if WA members show each other their sites? I'd certainly like to see some successful ones. Another question: Do WA people use outsourced writers to help write content for their websites? I've used People Per Hour folks in the past for an ebook I wrote.

I typically don't share my top earning websites for privacy reasons - those are real businesses earning monthly income I depend on! Some people have copied my websites in the past as well, so you can imagine how frustrating that can be.

However, I do share some past projects and side projects to give you an idea.

You came here through one website: https://onemorecupof-coffee.com

Another website I work on from time to time is https://xbrewx.com

Here are some past projects: You can also stop by Live Chat and see if anyone is willing to share their website, or check out the profiles of the top members and see if they list their websites in their profile: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/rank

Not everyone shares, for their own reasons, but many people do share. I also recommend you check out this post I wrote, about the results that people are getting but you might not hear about!

Hey, I purchased a new domain (www.olos-orcc.com) from Namecheap with the intention of moving over a current of one of my current websites (www.traditionalcatholicchurchknoxvilletn.com). Every time I try to add the domain, it says "Ops, we've encountered a problem on our end we're working to fix". It doesn't say if that will take an hour, a day, a week...any ideas?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
How are you trying to move the website?

So you are taking the current content from traditionalcatholicchurchknoxvilletn.com and moving it to olos-orcc.com ?

Are they on the same host?

If they are both hosted here in WA, even if your domain registrar is namecheap, you can create a redirect using the "move" button in your website manager area here in the WA dashboard. If that's not what you're trying to do, let me know a few more details and I can help you figure this out!

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?

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!

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.

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.

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

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 !

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.

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.

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!

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.

I'm not sure Helen! Lots of programs have used that name over the years. Was it incomeEDU?

Thanks for answering me. No I don' think so. It had a nice eager young woman (compared to me) spouting off about it. And the hurry there is only x number of places left.

I did write this down, but where I don't remember.'

The next day back in. A different lady and the x was now x+!

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

Hi Nathaniel!
It was from your website that I joined this great site! I’m blown away! This is exactly what I have been searching for. I want to do affiliate marketing all the way! I’m going to upgrade now and if you can steer me in the right direction of affiliate marketing I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you

Nathaniell,
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

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.
Thanks.

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'm not sure which programs you used before, so I can't accurately compare them! I do know that WA creates many success stories with people of all ages, in many countries around the world. Here are some great success stories from last year! Let me know if you have any more questions about WA Simon!
