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, it's nice to meet you! How are you doing? It's great to be here but being a total noob, I'm still doubtful if this could work. Despite that, I'm willing to explore and give it a shot, at least in the first 7 days. Thank you for the recommendation. :)

You can do this Joyce! We all start out as newbies. I was in your same position back in 2010, and now I"ve been doing this full time for about 7 years now.

You're in great hands here in WA. Just let us know when you need help.

Hello Nathaniell,

Thanks for your message!

As a fellow Californian, I joined your link for WA because I have read your e-mails over the past several weeks (have been impressed), and want to seek your help during my initial year with WA (and beyond).

I'm a specialist in the Senior 55+ market (it's where my "day job" centers upon). I see so much potential in this market, and want to establish several websites in support of Senior 55+ needs and other "issue areas" that you suggest. I am in this market category myself (age wise), and want to move forward in a successful affiliate marketing series of websites.

I am open to all of your suggestions, especially getting started during these first 90 days. I want to avoid any mistakes, and don't want to "spin my wheels" on so-called wrong-turns in affiliate marketing.

Thanks! Looking forward to "trading ideas" with you on an ongoing basis during the months ahead!

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.

You are definitely right that seniors are a niche market in any industry, whether it be travel, health, dating, or making money. Since you're a senior yourself, you have automatic insight, which will help you build out an effective, profitable website.

If you have any questions while getting started with the training, just let me know! It's always being optimized and improved, so I don't think you'll spend much time spinning your wheels (although we ALL do this a little from time to time, including myself!)

Hello Nathaniell,

Thanks for your reply to my initial message as a new WA member.

I look forward to your suggestions regarding my selected niche, and creating several websites addressing the Senior 55+ market.

As many of us know, this 55+ market is highly active, and I look forward to serving these customers in all ways possible!

Thanks for your help and support !!

Greeting Kyle,
Due to a tech issue I’m unable you see if you received my introductory message. Primarily I was asking if WA assist with the application process for various affiliate programs. Those that are done via Marketing companies and directly with specific companies ie Amazon? I’m sure the answer is in further training so forgive my impatience it’s born from enthusiasm.

Wealthy Affliate will show you how to apply to affiliate programs, but really, this is a very small part of the process of making money with affiliate marketing. Most programs will accept you with a very small site, and they do not care if you have experience! It’s super easy.

The hard part is going to be getting traffic to your website, which is the main focus of the Wealthy Affiliate training.

Let me know if you have any more questions about getting started with Wealthy Affiliate training or how affiliate marketing works.

Yes, I’ve actually started an affiliate with another affiliate company as well, however, I’m trying to navigate social media and my doing a real bad job of it. I’m really confused by Hootsuite, Instagram, Pinterest, Tailwind for Pinterest, and I’m still trying to pay off Facebook for my ads because I didn’t understand how Facebook ads work. So thanks for the encouragement Nathaniell

Sounds like you have a lot of irons in the fire Faye! My suggestion would be to get your website set up first, and THEN start running ads and doing social media. Have you got your niche picked out and your site running with content yet?

Yes, as I mentioned with a totally different company, not WA. The website is not setup for WA yet. I just started yesterday with WA.

Hey Nathaniell! Thank you so much for reaching out to me. I did find your article through Googling NuSkin because I was researching direct sales companies to make some extra income from. But then I read your article and liked the sound of Affiliate Marketing way better, so thank you for that! I hope that I can be successful in this.
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Awesome! Yes, I think affiliate marketing is better for most people. You can promote anything you want, including NuSkin if you want. That’s why I prefer this style of business! No need to “stick to” one company. Promote anything you like, and you can make money without promoting anything at all if you want!

I’m in Thailand right now and my iPad isn’t working with the search bar, so just search my article with the phrase “make money without selling anything”, and you’ll see that you can still earn money through ads even if you don’t do hard sells to promote specific products.

Michmurray again... for some reason, my web site is "live..." I never published the web site... and I still cannot log in to back end (myhealthposts.com/wp-admin)... always get blank screen. Never had such issues with wordpress on other hosting sites such as Blue Host. Again, this is a new site I just started from scratch on your platform... what is happening!
Reply
nathaniell Premium
You don't have to "publish" for it to be live. It's just live once you make it. Dont' worry about people visiting an unfinished site though - you won't get any traffic until you start publishing articles.

Because of the auto-login feature, /wp-admin might not work.

https://myhealthposts.com/wp-login.php works though. That's the correct URL.

Your auto-login can be found in your website admin area: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites (Websites > Site Manager)

Let me know if that works for you!

Awesome! You'll be able to build a website to show off your modeling brand and land more gigs. You can combine that site with affiliate links, or do them separately.

Whatever you decide to do, owning a bit of digital real estate with your own brand is a necessity for any budding entrepreneur :)

Hi Nathaniell,

Thanks for sending the response.

I am eager to start, and realize I have a lot to learn here. Looking forward to receiving any advice you may have to share. I don't have any expectations to be a millionaire here, but am looking forward to at least meeting my projections that I posted on my profile. Black Friday brought out all advertisers/gurus on internet marketing, and wasn't sure who to believe in what they were offering. So here I am, taking a leap of faith!

Clickbank just had a promotion too on learning how to do "WebinarX" for large ticket items, can you tell me if there will be an opportunity to promote high ticket items too through WA? or is it basically learn the basics here and then move to other platforms for high ticket?

Anyways, please feel free to share any tips/advice. Thanks much!!

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.

As for high ticket items, you can promote anything you want! You'll need to find the things you want to promote, and make sure they relate to your niche. The trouble with "high ticket webinars" is that they almost always relate to the "make money online" niche. If that's your interest, great! If not, then you may end up blindly promoting something just to make money, which isn't a great recipe for long term business success.

There are other high ticket things out there, but you have to pick your niche first before you start looking for what to promote.

Yes hello Nathaniel. Thanks so much for all of the information on your blog. I finally found a home at WA. And just in time because Guess what...I was invited to an Amazing webinar and I stopped myself from feeling down about not affording their hefty $995.00 installments. So I decided to revisit your article about Alternatives to the Amazing selling machine. After not too much further reading I decided to join WA! Adventures on the river was of interest but it seems he has closed shop.

Now that is Amazing! Thanks for your personal style and your caring spirit. It comes across in your writing. I'm interested primarily in creating digital books but I'm open to discovering something totally outside of my comfort thoughts. With WA I may discover alternative niches that I hadn't imagined. Thank you Nathaniel.

Awesome - glad to hear that you remembered my article and went back to it :)

Affiliate marketing is a super powerful way to make money, but you can leverage your website in any way you want. For example, you could promote affiliate products in a niche, but also promote your own ebook on Amazon! You could also use the traffic to promote an Amazon store, or your own ecommerce shop. Totally up to you!

That being said, I'm a huge fan of affiliate marketing, and recommend you follow Kyle's training step by step to get the scoop on how everything works.

Hi Nathaniell, I am trying to pick a niche. I feel that mens's fitness would be good, but I have heard that I should make it a smaller type niche, like I would do mens's fitness over 40yrs old. One other thing, back about 12 yrs ago I wrote a politics blog, which I really enjoyed and always was able to come up with good content. But, I don't know how I'd make money with it. I am into men's physical fitness, bodybuilding, supplements, politics, religious topics, baseball, homeschooling, etc. Those are my main interests. I have always heard that you need to do something of interest to you or it becomes hard to come up with content.
What say you?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Both can make money.

With men's fitness, I'd say pick WHO, or WHY. So you could do "men's fitness over 40" (that's the WHO). Or you could do "how to naturally bulk" (that's the WHY). Those two methods can help you narrow down your audience.

Politics could work too. See my posts here: You can make good money with just TRAFFIC, and no products to sell.

Politics will be risky though, since Google is going to majorly tweak its algorithm to battle against "fake news", and you may have trouble on social media sites with getting flagged. That being said, if it's your passion, then you'll find ways to work around whatever hurdles you face!

Let me know what you think James

Thanks Nathaniel. Is the danger of being too broad (mens's fitness), that there is too much competition and no one will read your site? But if it is too micro niche, I just worry that I will run out of things to talk about.
Reply
nathaniell Premium
You are exactly right about being too broad. Something like mensfitness.com will have a team of writers to cover everything under the sun. You are also right that "too niche", can mean you run out of stuff to say.

That's why we target an audience instead of a product. A group of people will always want to buy stuff. There will always be something to market to "men over 40 that want to gain muscle". However, you may run out of topics if you chose something like "free testosterone booster reviews for men over 40 that want to gain muscle to date beautiful women"

If you name your domain something "brandable", you can always tweak your niche later, and no one will notice :)
Reply
jbitakis Premium
Well, my "audience" would be, men over 40 who want to build muscle and lose fat. I'm wondering if I should do a testosterone booster review page instead? Or do I keep it focused on building muscle and losing fat for older guys, while maybe putting a link to a review page? idk. Just brainstorming aloud.
Also, should my domain name have a word in it to describe what the site is about? For example in my case something like fitover40.com
Reply
nathaniell Premium
"men over 40 who want to build muscle and lose fat" is perfect. You can make "free testosterone boosters" as one of your main categories of the site (I think Kyle has you pick 3).

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: Your domain sounds great - however, it's already taken. You could do a spin on the same concept, like fitnessover40.com (already taken though), or something catchy like nomoredadbod.com

Let me know if you have any follow up questions James!

I just bought a domain name. fitdadover40.com
My question is, the theme that I picked shows a guy squatting heavy weights, but when I chose it, that image is not on my site. How do I get an image? How do I build this website?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
cool domain name. nice branding!

The theme example probably just had a custom image that's not included with the theme. A "theme" isn't tied to any niche, so you can insert your own photos (or photos you download) to your website to make it about fitness. Pick a theme based on the layout you like not the photos!

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. If you want to learn about adding pictures, this one will help: I also created this resource to help you find many of the free image resources here in WA: There are also MANY more resources that have been created since I made that blog post. Type in "images" or "pictures" into the WA search bar and you'll find so many resources for free images. There's more than you'll ever be able to use.

Thanks much. I am going thru the training as I build this website. Hopefully I will have it done by this weekend. I have been so busy at work 12-16hr days, but have a few days off coming up this week. When I start writing content, I hear each post should be at least 2000 words. Do you agree? Also, how many times per week should I post something? I'm thinking at least 5 posts per week. What say you?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
1000 words is a minimum. 2k words is great too, but just make sure it's "good" content and not fluff. The exact number of words doesn't matter that much. What matters is that the substance of your content matches the type of search.

"How To Do A Google Search" May require just 800 words and a video. "How to Build A Shed" may require 2000 words, pictures, video, and links to additional resources!

Ther'es also no rule to how often you should post. I do 5x per week so I'm always building a larger and larger base of content for my webiste. This is also important in the beginning of your business, so that Google can see you are an "authority" on whatever you're writing about.

However, many people see results with just 2-3 times per week. Just depends on your niche, the length of each post, competition for your keywords, and other variables. In general, more is better!

Hi Nathaniell....I am in lesson 7 and trying to get the Privacy Policy page up. Firstly.....the Privacy Policy page on my site is entirely different from the one demonstrated by Kyle in his tutorial. Is that correct?

I still went through it and put in my URL in the appropriate spots.

Secondly.....in the Access to Personal Information section, there is language that reads "email your request to our data protection officer [your first name] at [email address] and we will work with you etc...." Is that my name and email? Am I the data protection officer? And

thirdly......I saved the page and then went to the "Publish" button. I hit the "Page" but the dropdown with the "admin" does not appear.....my question is - How do I publish?

Thank you, Jane

Hi Nathaniell, thanks for the offer.

I really enjoy your writing style... very personal and friendly :-)

I've got 2 questions for you, would love your thoughts on them based on your experience -

1) Let's say I have between 1-2 hours a day to invest here (I'm a full time student and also have a job). If I'm diligent, how long until I can reasonably expect to make my first $? How much can I reasonably expect to make 1 year from now?

2) At what point will it make sense to hire freelancers to write articles? (Do you use freelancers?)

Thanks in advance,

Assaf

It's impossible to say how long it will take or how much money a website can earn. Everyone has a different niche, and works at a different pace. Some people absorb the knowledge faster, or have better writing skills and will see faster results, but anyone that sticks to the training will eventually see results.

To be honest, I wouldn't expect magic to happen in the next few weeks. You will however, be able to meet smaller goals like getting your site set up, getting it to look how you want, and start generating traffic. If you do some work on your site every day, you may start to see more traffic and sales in a few months.

It's really up to you. I've seen both faster, and slower results!

With 1-2 hours per day, you can definitely see sales coming in within 3-6 months, but I would expect at least a year before you start seeing income. Just a best guess though!

Kyle has two great posts on this topic:

"How Long Has It Taken To Earn What You Earn" "If I Work At This 8 Hours Per Day" Oh, and I wouldn't worry about hiring freelancers until you have a budget for it, as well as some knowledge about how affiliate marketing works, so you can accurately gauge the work being done on your website.

Great to hear. Black Friday an Cyber Monday are the Sellers' Saint Graal.

Yes it's been a hard journey. But I've been enjoying cause I become stronger mistake after mistake.
I believe, as you said, that there are out many excellent products out there like WA is demonstrating to be, and others that simply are less clear or don't talk in the right way to their audience, so they can fully understand.

And sometime simply we need to spend more time at our pace to climb the learning curve.

Greatness will manifest when we are ready to receive it.

I've already noticed the great technology and mission behind WA, absolutely blows my mind.

Hey Nathaniell. I'm doing pretty well. I have a big dream, a startup I'm building, for education. My last venture raised $12M! ... but I was the product guy not the "marketer". So starting over from scratch.

Second, it's taking me years to put that startup together, so I've been working the side hustle, tutoring after school, subbing, and now ... driving UBER EATS. I tell you all this for two reasons:

1. Long term I'm gonna need to understand all this for my startup.

2. My expectations short term are realistic. Hey, I"m driving Uber so I've got a realistic frame of reference.

I'm digitally savvy so looking forward to learning quickly.

Wow. 12 mil. That's a lot! I think your experience from that will be great for building your website here in WA.

Since you already have a lot of experience with tech I think the training in WA is going to be a whiz for you Robert. It's just a matter of getting the tasks done, and developing your writing skills to get your content ranked and selling.

But all that will come with the training. Have you started going through it yet? It focuses specifically on setting up an affiliate marketing website, so you won't see a lot about "how to start a business" type MBA stuff, but you will get specific steps on how to make money from your affiliate website.

Let me know if you have any questions Robert!

Yes, you can sell your own product! The traffic to your website can be use to sell or promote whatever you want.

You also can run your own affiliate program, but that topic is not covered here in WA (as far as I know). Most of the content is geared towards affiliates building websites, not companies looking to recruit affiliates.

Wealthy Affiliate is the best program online because you get personal interaction with peers (the community) and mentors (me, Kyle, Carson, and more!). Everything else you find online is basically just a PDF guide to read.

Hey Nathaniel! I have been trying to find a job online for awhile. I was going toward teaching English online because that is what my family does and it just felt like the easiest option. But because I saw your article/blog. I decided to try this first because I feel like I would enjoy this more than teaching English online.
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Haha. You and me both!

It takes a while to get momentum with your affiliate site, but long term, it's a lot better than doing English teaching IMO. I did that for ten years - fun for a while, but I prefer working online!

Hi, thanks for reaching out. I just started to check out the free training. I actually came across your link about WA pretty accidentally while I was reading an article about music niche affiliate programs on your one more cup of coffee site. This seems like a great program so far I'm excited to give it all a try!

Haha. Glad to hear that my music affiliate programs are reaching real people and helping them out.

Hi Nathaniell! Thank you for reaching out to me. I came across your website of course in search for some answers on how to start my business and the small but many details I am not quite knowledgable about. I am starting out very slowly as my budget is a bit limited at the moment but I am taking it step by step and just doing some research for now.

Don't worry, we were all newbies at one point along the way Michele. 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. :)

Hey there, I have a site of my own I have been building with content over time and really want to take it to the next level (monetizing it). Your site inspired me to do so. I actually have taught myself a lot along the way and am about to get verified by google adsense so I can start using ads. One problem I run into is getting qualified, there are some "problems" with my site google finds that to be honest are not actually on my site. Can you help with this please?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
It depends on what the problems are, and what part of Google is telling you to change them. Stuff like Google's speed tool is very nitpicky, and will ding you for anything, especially adsense ads that can slow down your website.

Glad to hear my site inspired you Zac!

The adsense is stating things such as (Scraped content) and whatnot.. which is not on my site. It is frustrating not being able to get qualified, any suggestions?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Adsense said scraped content? Did you buy a website from someone, or did your order content from someone? Many of these services steal, then rewrite content, hence the "scraped content" warning.

My progress is going nowhere, Monday's heart surgery was very difficult to go through. So I am at the very beginning with training and do not even remember what I read, The only thing that I am thinking about is my heart. I have know idea why I signed
up for a project like this which I have NO knowledge of, I guess that could look at this two ways, 1.) a fresh start and 2) trying to create something that is like climbing a moment without a robe.
I am very interested in your opinion can you

Sorry to contact directly, but just after some help if possible.

I just wondered what you thought which theme would best suit my site - here's a sample page as I am struggling to choose.

nathaniell Premium
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!

Hey Nathaniel, Thanks for reaching out. I'm pretty excited for what seems to be a great opportunity here with Wealth Affiliate. I have been doing the same as you in regards to the entrepreneurial search, research and fail method. It has been taking a lot of time and energy to get to where I am today, however, a lot of my time and money has been wasted since these "opportunities to learn and grow" were scams. I have a full time job with steady income along with a a dream to one day have enough flows of passive income to quit my full-time job with no consequences and support myself so I can continue building a firm foundation for my legacy. I am looking forward to what may come if I align myself with WA. Thanks again for reaching out!

Hi Nathaniel, I have a website and the only links go to the WA sign up page. In the last 2 days I have WordPress send me notices that I have 3 different people who have given a user name and an email address. And nothing more. They obviously when to the signup page to register but they have not shown up in my referrals. The website is:
https://learnmarketingonlineforfree.com/ Having the email address and a user name I can obviously put them in my email list to use at a later date. Question: 1. Why don't they show up in my referrals page. 2. Should I just take the email address and send them a welcome email and explain how to get started.
Reply
nathaniell Premium
You are looking at two different things, which is why there's confusion. The WordPress user signups are spam. Block them like this: WA signups are through the WA affiliate program, and your links are through here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/share

I would not recommend emailing those addresses anything because 1) You didn't get their permission, and 2) They are probably empty accounts, or worse, malicious.

Okay so I have an account with jvzoo earlier today out of curiosity I Googled is it possible to make money with jvzoo and your block came up so I read through it and here I am. now I understand that this is not a process that would be overnight just like you to explain and I know that it takes patience and I have that and reason I really want to get involved because of the amount of money that is needed to to do this. But just out of curiosity do you complete a new blog or update a website or whatever it is you do like everyday like for example I don't know what it would be that I would discuss but everyday you have to come up with something to create a new page for people to read kind of like a radio show host like do you do people just sometimes discuss anything I'm just curious thank you

I try to publish something every day, but that's not required. Google is a machine, so the more data (content) you give it, the more it understands about your website and the more chances you have to rank.

Some people publish less, and focus more on promoting their content via social media. Other people, like me, publish more, and do less social stuff.

Part of your WA training will be learning how to do research so you know what to write about next. Most niches have infinite possibilities of what to write about, so there will never be a shortage content ideas!

Glad I came across your website.
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Well you're in luck! Wealthy Affiliate is not an MLM, so you don't have to worry about the typical pitfalls like throwing parties or selling stuff to your family.

They don't specifically cover instagram marketing in the main training here, but you'll find some member-created trainings that do cover Instagram. They will cover social media though! As of now, they focus on teaching Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.

For how you plan to make money with your website, 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.

This is not the same system as ASM. They do "Amazon FBA" with physical products. We do "Amazon Associates" (among a bunch of other programs). You can sell stuff on your website without shipping inventory since we focus on affiliate marketing.

Almost, but not quite.

WA does offer hosting to its members. They also focus on affiliate marketing. However, they teach people how to be affiliates. They do not teach product owners how to find affiliates. Sounds like you are a product owner trying to run your own affiliate program?

You could still benefit from the traffic training here, and you can still host your website here. If you want to be an affiliate, this is the best place to learn.

Hey Nathaniell!

Don't know whether this is your message from yesterday, but I do have one questions: Does WA supply the technology to create and post sales funnels, or will I need someone else's technology for that? I've had accounts with both Click Funnels and MLSP, and have created a couple of funnels, but I became overwhelmed with everything and nobody had a clear path to success.

WA seems to have something I can use, and I'm also finding "Circle of Profit" by Anik Singal helpful, although his offering is WAAAAAY too expensive!

Thanks again for your help.

Hey Bert.

WA does not provide any tools for post-sales funnels like page builders, autoresponders, etc. If you are a WA affiliate, there are some marketing tools available to you: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/share

However, if your niche is not related to promoting Wealthy Affiliate (most people pick their own niche), then you'll need to see what tools you specifically need and purchase them outside of WA.

WA focuses on teaching you how to get organic traffic in Google, then make money by putting affiliate links in your ranking articles.

I have been working on 3 websites, and i wondered if you minded having a look at this one i have almost ready to go https://trading-like-a-pro.com/ . I still am not sure about the use of images, adding widgets etc, the post looks rather plain, not sure if the fonts are good, i think it looks alright but maybe it could be better. Also, i don't know what if anything, to do with the 'page' section, since i'm only writing posts. thanks!

Looking great so far Olivia! Sounds like you're doing really great with forex trading.

One question I have is how/why you changed the URL of this page? https://trading-like-a-pro.com/tradinglikeapro/

The URL should look more like this: https://trading-like-a-pro.com/money-management-how-much-to-risk-per-trade

Keeping your keyword in the URL is important for getting ranked in Google. I'd also add more images to the page - maybe 2-3 for each post, and make them relevant to the content.

But your content is looking good so far, and it sounds like your site will be a very interesting resource for newbie Forex traders. I know there are lots of paid-for products out there that you'll be able to review!

Hi!

It's kinda ridiculous, LOL I asked for a refund! But as far as this goes......what will be the costs involved as far as getting everything set up to actually start earning income. Does every website made cost money?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
The total cost for running your business at WA are as follows:

1. Membership fees: $19 for the first month, then $49/month after that as long as you are a member. There's no contract for this, so you can cancel any time. You retain the rights to your website and can move it to another host if you cancel your membership.

2. TLD Domain Name (.com/org/net). Though WA offers free domain names, for your main business you should use a Top Level Domain. This costs $15/year through WA, but you are welcome to use another registrar if you want. I prefer WA because it's cheaper long term

Compared here: https://www.wealthyaffiliate.com/domains

There are many advantages and freebies for those hosted and registering domains here in WA. I've outlined many specific about SSL, security, and privacy here: WA also offers systems to get you peer feedback on your website, as well as comment exchanges to help create engagement (then boost rank) on your site).

3. *optional* Jaaxy: 19/month. This is for keyword research. This is the preferred Keyword tool from WA members and I use it all the time myself. But it is optional, and you can use a similar version for free in WA https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/kw_research

Hi Nathaniel. Thanks for your support. I don't really know enough yet to have too many questions. I hope that WA can teach me how to determine which products are selling. I don't really have any ideas at the moment. I just know I want to be more creative and not have to rely on a job for income.
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Finding a good niche (which products to promote) 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!

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!
Reply
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.

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.

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!

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. :)

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!

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.

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.

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...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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hey Nathaniel, how're you doing?
I would need some proof of earnings related to WA. Something to show my blog readers.
Also, reviews would help...
I would like to do something like this...

Do you have some ideas on where to get this stuff?

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. If you'd like to stay up-to-date with the languages we support, please feel free to check back with us at the above link.

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.

Thank you,
Darryl

I'm hoping to managed to get to that point.

Sorry about my English since I'm from Portugal :)

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.

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 was all set to set up an Am*z*n aff program
but they decided I wasn't a fit and proper

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

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 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!

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. :)

"Don't worry, Be happy now" as Bob McFerry sings in his lyrics is a really fitting epithet for Wealthy Affiliate and for ourselves also lol, just take one step at the time and "bake the cake" and then it will taste delicious and then we can have a party lol ;-)

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

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!

Thanks for your time to create this post. You made some very well thought out points. Many things you pointed out I had not thought about. I will worry less about the competition and do more long tail keyword research.

Hi Nathaniel, I’m doing good thanks, nice to meet you. Just been looking at the intro video. This is all really new to me, I haven’t done anything like this before but wanted to give it a go because I like the idea of working on my own and for myself. Quite over whelming at the moment but exciting to try something new. Looking forward to the rest of the training. Thanks for the referral.

Dear Nathaniell,
I've been doing the training all day today (Sat) and WOW, the contents is the BEST I've ever seen on a pay site!!!!!! Ok., you mention that a person can post a link to their website if they need,critique, help, feedback, reactions, etc. Which is the primary reason I subscribed to your site, you see, friends, family, partners WILL ALWAYS TELL YOU, ITS PERFECT! BECAUSE THEY DON'T WANT TO HURT YOUR FEELINGS, HAVE A VESTED INTEREST, OR SIMPLY DO NOT WANT TO BE BOTHERED! I really need to hear "THE TRUTH., as painful as it may be...LOL, Please excuse my IGNORANCE, but where do I post a link and ask for help???????? Thank you!!!!

I'd love to provide some more specific feedback Robert, but it would help me out if you gave me a bit of direction on what you were looking for. Here's what I mean: Please let me know a bit more about what you need, and I'll be able to provide you with some answers. The content in general looks fine!

HI, I am trying to get started with writing about me in SITE CONTENT for one of the 2 websites I have created. I log into the particular website but it takes me straight to DASHBOARD . Do you know where I am going wrong here? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
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!

Thanks so much Nathaniell and you have a very great content on your website(onemorecupof-coffee) I couldn't but just join this network.

Hi Nathaniell,

I tried to look up key words in Jaaxy and its making me do a start up membership. Well I tried and I got an error message saying I have too many accounts. How can that be, I dont have any accounts with Jaaxy.

Help please,
Darryl

PS. I do have a primary email account I used when I signed up for WA and Jaaxy wont let me use it.
Reply
nathaniell Premium
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 nathaniell, just read your MLM vs affiliate marketing blog entry, did some research about MLM because a company called Bhip tried to lure me into their team, so i had to be sure it was a good decision after i found out i had to do a sort of investment (wich i can't afford now)
Reply
nathaniell Premium
I'm glad to hear you ready my post and signed up because of it! Just to be clear, the free membership you have right now is 100% free, but for the full training, it will be $49/month. You can make the decision to sign up to Premium later if you want, but I just didn't want the cost to surprise you!

Hi Nathaniel! Please call me Ty! Your link Is confirmation of why I joined. For this site to be so comprehensive I cannot believe your link is my first introduction. I want to get started immediately to find out what is the highest paying or most consistent affiliate programs. I have a link not affiliated with WA that has an expiration date. I want to take advantage of this asap. I went through the first lesson but since you asked I figured you could give me some advice? Thank you for reaching out!

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.

Hi Nathaniel! I hope the info here helps propel me to success. You see, I have been working on a day trading method for 5-7 years, finally perfected a method that can make any one $200 per day conservatively with a 6k account from the comfort of home or any where with an internet connection. I am so confident that I allow others to download 3/4 of the method for FREE! I also did something unprecedented, I show PROOF by trading my method LIVE, actually showing my broker account, NO ONE ELSE I know DOES THIS!!! My site is daytradingwiththelight dot com Thank you for listening, Robert

Day trading, especially if you're selling your own courses, is definitely something you can build a website about and promote products for on your website. I wish I had the dedication to figure out day trading, so it's awesome that you were able to master it Robert!

Dear Nathaniell, If time permits, you can go to my website; daytradingwiththelight dot com. Truly anyone can do this! My method took 6-7 years to create, refine and simplify. I even show LIVE trades under the "Live day trade tab" Think this is difficult, you can prove to yourself it is NOT, by downloading 3/5 of my course for FREE!!!!!!

nathaniell Premium
Cool site. Love the purple theme! I won't have time to actually learn day trading at this point...too busy with my own projects, but I know a lot of people want to learn this stuff, so you have a target audience out there.

Just a quick FYI so save you some hassle down the road, if you do post your link in WA in the future, make sure it's in the right context. You are totally fine the way you just did it, but I wanted to make sure the rules were clear to save you the trouble: Hope this helps Robert!

Hi Nathaniel,
My name is Rob. Somehow I think you are my sponsor.
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.
