About Nathaniell
Joined June 2010
I started internet marketing while living in China. The idea was that I could make American money while in China, and 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 Coach,
I already have a problem with my website www.breakthru.com
I'm trying to format the home page like your video I think you had on One Cup of Coffee (I can't find the video again). What are your thoughts? Should I change the theme? It doesn't seem like I can do anything in widgets. The about page is too large. I have a post ready to publish.
Thank You,

There's really no "best" theme out there, so my advice is to pick something you like that's ready out of the box. Some themes are quite complicated, so their "demo" looks great, but to achieve the same thing, your really need to work to get images, pages, and other features to look the same.

I'd recommend starting with a much simpler theme: Things like sliders, fancy images, and other features look cool, but they tend to slow down your site and will not help much with making sales. Simple is better when it comes to reading information!

Even with a simple blog-style website, keep in mind, your home page will be a "blog roll" meaning it will be blank until you start publishing posts!

I have a problem. I'm doing lesson 7, the privacy policy. I've done everything the lesson told me to do, but the privacy policy doesn't appear on my website. It's not been put into my menu either.
The only way I can see it is if I press the view page button from the Awesome, your page has been published page. If I do that I can see it, but when I go to my website without going through that button it doesn't show up at all.
I don't know what I'm doing wrong. This is what I've tried so far. I published it as a page. I tried setting my menu, now says it's on there twice. but still I don't see it on my website. I've worked on this issue all mourning and still can't fix it. I've tried to update it, but nothing works. The only thing I can think of is maybe my theme is messing it up.
just went in and redid it all with the same results. Nothing! When I was on that page did I have to put anything in the title box? and it says preview snippet. What's a snippet? I also have an uncategorized on my site. How do I get that off? AAAAA!!!!! To many things going wrong on this lesson. Help please.

Get that link, and you can put it in a custom menu: Your home page may or may not display your top menu. Sometimes, menus only show up on blog posts, especially if you have a custom home page setting on your WordPress theme.

You can also put menus in a sidebar if you can't see it in your top menu: Let me know if that works for you!

So, I was looking for affiliate programs today (saving them for later) just doing a google search and wouldn't you know... onemorecupofcoffee comes up with a list of 10 luggage affiliate programs on the first page. Seems like a small world. Thought you might get some enjoyment from knowing that.

Haha. I always love to hear when my website turns up in search :)

Good Day Nathaniell.
Nice to see your smile of success on my upper left whenever I login.
Perhaps you can help me solve my image issue on social media.
Most of the time I get the somber "blank" man.
Do you have anything fairly simple and not too techie?
Some along the "featured image" size, maybe?
nathaniell Premium
It depends on the social media website you use! Each platform grams images from a different place.

If you mean on WordPress websites, that's a gravatar thing.

hi Nathaiell

I hope you don't mind me messaging you directly but I've put this question out on the general board and didn't feel certain about how reliable the responses are.

Basically my current / first niche is Panic attacks. At the moment I'm working on informational posts, and I'm working towards monetizing it through promoting programmes that help people recover from panic.

I have quite a limited amount of time to work on the blog, so the time I do spend has to count.

Yesterday I was watching a live stream tutorial on youtube with quite a well respected blogger / affiliate marketer. He had a look at my site and said that although the content looks good, his immediate thought is that the 'health niche' is very competitive and difficult to rank in.

A few other people in the live chat reiterated what he said, and said that they had tried health type blogs and it had been very difficult to rank.

I had assumed that because I had chosen a sub niche and the keywords that I was working with met the WA criteria, that I would be fine.

But I'm now wondering if I need to redirect my efforts and do something outside the health arena.

It's a bit of a bummer as I've worked in health care for a long time so it's what I find easiest to write about.

I would appreciate your opinion. Please be brutally honest. It's much better for me to hear the truth now!

Many thanks

It really depends on how you look at it. There are good and bad.

The bad is that Google recently cracked down on "health and wellness" basically to fight against anti-vaxxers. Unfortunately, many alternative health websites got swept up in the change.

So basically there are more rules now about what is "legitimate health" websites and what isn't.

The other downside is that it's a popular niche, and competitive.

The good news is that competition is good. Competition means people are making money! It also means you don't need a huge website to make money. A small, niche website, in the health and wellness arena can do very well!

The other good news is that because everyone is "scared" of health and wellness, there will be more opportunities for tenacious bloggers. Google didn't ban any type of website, and Google didn't say you can't write what you want.

Write what you want, and it'll get ranked.

While all the get-rich-quick people will flee to other areas, if you stick with what you know and what you enjoy, you can do well.

It's up to you! Let me know what you think.

Thanks Nathaniell

I think I will stick at it and see how it goes. What's the worst that can happen? Either way, I will learn a lot.

Thanks again for your input.

nathaniell Premium
Great attitude Lesley. At the very least you'll learn a lot, and if you have build a second website later in a non-health related niche, you'll be an expert by then, and progress will me much, much faster this time around :)
