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.

Please help me solve my problem and develop some etiquette in the support staff who attended to me today. I am doing a copy paste of this message to Kyle and Carson too.

Sorry to say this Nathaniell, but I was having some issues with my website today and I asked the support staff for the website for help.

They were just giving me vague answers and were not helpful at all. After a few messages I was told that they don't support my particular problem and to contact someone elsewhere on the WA platform.

I am absolutely disgusted, fuming and confused and have no idea how to solve this problem.

Here's my problem:

1) I need to go into the "Home" page and edit what's on there and I can't figure out how to enter this page.

2) On the "About Ranji" page, as per following the training lesson, I had saved it as a Post. I need to now save it as a Page and then edit it.

3) On the dashboard of WP, when I click "Pages", it's only the Privacy Policy that shows up as a Page.

The "support staff" is ONLY for issues related to hosting. It's tech support, not web design or marketing support. That's why they directed you to the community.

These are all questions you can ask within the community, using Classrooms. They are all related to designing your menu. As for your page vs post issue, you do not need to make it a page. You can just put your post in a menu. Let me know if that works for you Ranji!

Hi Nathaniell, I am just getting started and considering different niches. I was thinking about running footwear (shoes & socks) because it's something I'm interested in and get asked about all the time as a runner. Is that too broad though? Do I need to specify a brand and promote a line, maybe? For example, Brooks does footwear and apparel.
Thanks! Carrie

Running footwear is definitely a niche that could work. My advice would be to focus on a specific group of runners. Women? People training for marathons? Hobby joggers? Trail runners? That way you can talk about more than products. There's so much more to say about the lifestyle!

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!

Hey Nathaniell, would you mind letting me know your thoughts on this please?

Do you think it would work for me to set up my second website to promote TEFL online? I have an idea you will have some definite ideas about this I really do need an income and need to find the best way to get some students.

Thanks,

Rodney

You could definitely do a TEFL website. Hundreds of thousands of people want to teach abroad every year. My advice would be to focus on a specific type of person who wants to teach TEFL.

young person taking a year off before college
college grad doing TEFL as their first job
older person looking for a change of pace
retiree wanting to travel and work

These are all different audiences, all would be interested in reading about how to get a TEFL certificate and make money.

Nathaniell, your story is very inspiring. I just completed my OEC and developed one website for that. It focused on my single niche. I still have loads of work to do on that to get it up to earning an income. And many of the ideas you shared could definitely help.

Now that I've started Bootcamp and the Super Affiliate Program, I have created a second website. This is the one I shall be using to promote WA.

I know that these two will keep me very busy. My goal is to start earning a part time income starting in January 2020. And full time income a year later. It will take a lot of work. And I have no intention of starting another website for the very reasons you mentioned. As I learn new skills I want to tweak my existing websites to maximize the results.

Thanks for sharing your story.

I am facing an issue which is really important for me.
I can't change my PayPal account. IDK why it's happening. It says, "please contact sitesupport to change your PayPal". I have done that. But nothing! Nothing has changed.
Why is it happening and what should I do now. I badly need to withdraw my payment. There's only 1 day left!!!!

Hey Nathaniell I have a domain on Bluehost. How do I transfer it over to here. Am I better to wait until the yearly subscription is up which will be about January or do it now. I would rather it was here so I could get feed back on posts etc for both
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 this is the case, you need to "change the DNS" of your domain to get your website working properly: 2. If you bought a domain at WA, you do not need to transfer anything, therefore do not need any transfer codes. Your domain is here already, and the DNS is already set up correctly.

If this is the case, perhaps you are trying to "redirect" your siterubix domain to the .com you just bought. Kyle explains how to do this here: 3. 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. 4. Finally, if you are trying to "move a website", that's an entirely different process. My recommendation would be to contact SiteSupport. They will move one website for you for free! https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/support

Sounds like you are trying to do both the domain and the website. In that case, you should contact SiteSupport FIRST, to move your website. Wait for that to finish up, then transfer the domain (less important right now).

As for Yearly, you can upgrade at any point. Any extra time will be prorated or you may receive a discount of a couple bucks for unused time. Depends on exactly when you upgrade, but either way, they are fair about it. Your billing settings are here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/home/my_profile

Hi Nathaniel, It seems in the niche I have chosen that there is way too much competition after doing the keyword research. I have basically chosen Health advisory and it seems to be too broad. Do you think I should narrow it down to something that would get lower QSR?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
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.

That being said "health advisory is too broad. You'd need to do something for a specific type of person, like "men over 50 who want to lose weight" or "travelers going to developing countries". Each group of people has a different goal they want to achieve and a different set of standards of what "health" means to them.

Hi Nathaniell, Hope all is well with you? I am now on my way through the training and editing my website. I have a question I am sure you can answer.
When I select on my Menu, ~"About Jon" the next heading "Uncategorized" loads and then when selected you are taken to the page about myself but the heading "Uncategorized" is at the head of the page. Any ideas how I remove this "Uncategorized" Link? Thanks for your help with this issue, Jon (Jonathan).
Reply
nathaniell Premium
I think what you're looking for is this custom menu area: Each theme has a different menu setup. Some have 1-3 menus up top. Some have a menu in the footer. You'll have to navigate to your custom menu (shown in the training) to see what you have available.

This is another cool training to go along with that one: . It can make your menu's a bit more user friendly.

Another thing you can do is with category pages: This is a great way to organize your blog posts into categories, so when someone clicks the menu item, it takes them to all related posts. Kind of like a mini blog roll based on category.

PS. I hope your Saturday is going well!

Hi Nathaniell,

I realized that although I love guitar, when I think about how I want to help people (as you suggest regarding niche selection), I would really like to help people more with "healthy living". My ideas were:

-Healthy daily eating (including eating a specific diet for your blood type)
-Drinking Healthy teas (white/green/black/oolong and medicinal teas like Traditional Medicine and Yogi brand)
-Supplements (spices, roots, protein, etc.)
-Cold showers for the health benefits (blood circulation, motivation, adaptive immunity, etc.)
-Exercise (strength, cardio, and stretching)
-Etc.

Should I center in on one aspect of healthy living listed above for my niche, or can I make a general website about "Healthy Living"? Do you have any specific niche suggestions for me?

I feel like I do not know as much about the healthy living category as about guitar, but I would have more fun researching about healthy living since I would benefit in the process.

I can't believe I'm still stuck in choosing a niche (as is so common, from what I've heard), but I want to maintain motivation and continue to have new content for my website!

Thank you again!
David

It’s ok if you do are. It an expert now. You can become one while you research for your website. I was not an online marketing expert when I started, but through practice I became one!

You should definitely narrow your idea from healthy living to own if the topics you listed.

Cold showers is probably too narrow. There’s not that much to say about them IMO. Something like supplements has a lot more diverse content to write, but if focus on supplements to achieve “what”. A bodybuilder has different goals than a women in her 50s!

Remember, your first website doesn’t have to be a home run! It can be, if you stick to it, but you will have many chances to correct your mistakes down the road.

Thank you so much for sharing your story and for being so forthcoming and honest with your website. I was afraid I was going to fall into a pattern of small business failure, jumping from MLM to MLM hoping to find something at least remotely profitable.

I was in Huizhou, Guangdong for 2 years then in the Fujian Province near Xiamen for 3 years.

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 Andy.

Awesome! Sounds like you are interested in photography, and that could be a cool niche to get into. Are you making a photography affiliate site, and if so, what specific audience are you targeting? Remember, not all photographers are the same!

Some people might need basic lightroom skills, while others may just be interested in travel photography. There are many "niches" within the world of photography.

It depends on what the words are.

If they are logos or images, you need to go to the Appearance setting in WordPress to upload your own images.

If they are text you want to remove, go to Posts and delete the default content.

You can also go to Settings > General to customize the name of your website and the tagline.

Hi Nathaniell, I am at a bit of a standstill here. I like my niche because it is something that I am interested in, but I feel like the information that I can add will come to an end. How often after the initial posts do you need to continue to add content of 1000 words, plus? I am wondering if I should change my topic.
Reply
nathaniell Premium
This happens a lot, and it's not a big deal. Check out Kyle's post on this topic: You can always expand to "related" niches and topics if you run out of ideas. However, I usually find that there are many uncovered keywords and topics that I simply couldn't imagine early on. As you dig deeper into your niche, you'll learn more about what to write and have more ideas on top of ideas.

What's the topic though?

Hey Nathaniell, just wanted to ask for your opinion on something. So I feel like I have had a very relatable experience with wanting to create my own online business but with much frustration and failure.

I've really enjoyed Wealthy Affiliate tremendously so far and can see that all along I should have quit trying to save money and bootstrap it and rather just find an affordable training program.

I would like to make a site/blog that's geared around helping people who have had the same struggles and who really desire to have their own online business.I want to promote Wealthy Affiliate since it has been such a huge help, but also promote different training programs within the different sectors of online business. So I guess my question is with all of that in mind should I do the regular training or the WA boot camp?

Thanks and I apologize for the novel!
Reply
nathaniell Premium
The answer is do both, but start with bootcamp :)

You'll learn a lot about entering the "make money online" niche in bootcamp. Though the training is focused on promoting WA, you can promote ANY "make money" program you want, or tools to help grow a business online like keyword tools, hosting, WordPress themes, etc.

However, there is slightly different information in the regular course, so you should definitely do that one too when you get the chance. The information is not conflicting with bootcamp, it's just from a different perspective.

Let me know if you have any more questions Quinton!

Hey Nathaniell,

I've been working on my site for the past 2 months. Building a twitter following (~180) and I have 31 posts, 3 pages.

I'm worried that I am doing something wrong since my organic search traffic is almost nil. I was wondering if you could help me out there... my site is markshirecrypto.com

Wondering if I can get some pointers on indexing... i followed all of the WA indexing but most of my posts are crawled but not indexed... and I'm not sure why...
Reply
nathaniell Premium
I checked your recent posts, and they do seem to be sluggish for indexing. Try this: Also, try this: Your post from Feb 9 is indexed, so Google does see your website, it's just taking its time. Perhaps publishing more frequently could encourage search engines to crawl your site more frequently.

Content is looking spot on so far. I recommend breaking up some of your paragraphs a bit more so your site is more readable on mobile (no walls of text), and I also noticed that there seem to be two font sizes, one for bullet points and one for regular text.

This may be a feature of your theme, but its something to think about fixing at some point. It's a little strange.

The running tickers for prices on the sidebar are cool, but do you think they slow down your site at all? If you have load speed issues, that would be the first thing I would remove.

Gonna need some 1:1 walkthrough I think!
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Have you started the training yet? It's still too early to be posting affiliate links to products at this point. I highly recommend you go through the courses in order.

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.

Here's the lessons (coming up in Level 3 of your training)

So I’ve started my website and had a question. Does my website/niche have to be about a single product or can I have many different products pertaining to the same overall category on my site. To be more clear say my niche is baby items, but I want to offer information to my crowd about many different baby items that could help people, and get them to try many different baby products. Also one other question I had is, how long till I could see even little success/ profits out of doing this, because I’d love to do this full time.
P.s. I plan to go premium soon if that helps the time line any. Thank you
Reply
nathaniell Premium
You can definitely have many products! A niche is not a product. A niche is a group of people.

So "baby items" is a good start, but it's still just product focused. What TYPE of babies are your products for (better yet, what type of parents).

Crunchy moms?
Busy single dads?
Young parents on a budget?
Special needs kids?
Something else?

Each type of audience will need many products, so you will not be limited to promoting just one thing.

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!

"How Long Has It Taken To Earn What You Earn" "If I Work At This 8 Hours Per Day"

Thanks man I appreciate you getting back to me. Now I can continue work on my vision for my website. I understand it won’t be a overnight thing or even a few weeks, I just wanted to get a idea of how long I’ll have to continue to wake up at 4am and drag butt to work hahah.

I wish I could do it for you, but I don't have any access to billing or your account stuff.

Also, just as a reminder, if your sites are hosted at WA and you want to re-start them at some point, you need to back them up. If you want to keep them live, you need to move them to another hosting service of your choice. I recommend KnownHost, but I know a lot of people like BlueHost, Hostgator, or 1&1.

I would like your opinion on my Wealthy Affiliate review and where to find the link to put in it Please.

While surfing the internet the other night, I came across an affiliate site that blew me out of the water, so to speak. I was looking for ways to earn money online. I thought I had found a good one online when I came across this one while researching the other one.
Background

For years I have been looking online for some way to make money so I could get off the road and be at home with my son. Then it happened, I was told I had to quit driving truck or end up in a wheelchair within a week. Enough about my problems, on to the good news.
The Good News

After finding out the other site I was researching was too expensive for me to start, I checked out Wealthy Affiliates. They were just what I was looking for. They offer a free trial, with more than enough step-by-step training and support to make it worth my while to join. They are extremely honest and a great community of people all willing to encourage and support any who join along the way. Even the people who are going through the free training get the same support system.

I am so glad I found this site, I can now see a light at the end of the tunnel, so to speak.
What to expect

7 day free trial with full training
Affordable fee to join
Extensive and very Intensive training
The ability to build up to 2 websites during free training
After you join it is only $19.00 for 1st month then $49.00/month or $359.00/year.
Full encouragement and support the whole time
Questions answered within 24 hours.

My opinion

In my opinion, I could not have found a better way to make a living online. Check them out for yourself at www.wealthyaffiliate.com . If you have any comments or questions just leave them below and I will answer them within 24 hours.


Any critic would be appreciated and let me know if I forgot anything.

Thanks in advance,
Barb.

I think that's a great start to a review. It's a little short in my opinion, but that's the thing with reviews - everyone has a different style! Try this one out and see how it performs. You'll need to be sending traffic there ASAP!

The only issue I found was that you call it "wealthy affiliates" (with an 's'), but the name is Wealthy Affiliate.

When you publish, you could also show some examples of websites that do affiliate marketing. Maybe find some websites with affiliate links, screenshot them, and post the images on your review so people can understand what type of website they will be building.

Hi, @Nathaniell I just joined your email course on One More Cup of Coffee after viewing your page about Martial Arts (a topic I'm super interested in). Just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. My name is Chris and I'm a new premium member of WA, I didn't use your affiliate link unfortunately but I'd love to be in contact and I hope to learn a lot from you!

Hi Nathaniell. I did not quit yet! They actually extended my retirement for 3 months. They made it well worth my time, but it has not allowed me to spend very much time building my business with WA. My retirement date is now March 31st. However, I am starting to delve into the business again. Got stuck on building the website, so I think that I need to revisit the lesson.

nathaniell Premium
My grandfather did the same thing, but he kept extending for years and years. It's hard to say "no" when the job is decent and there's money coming in haha.

Nothing wrong with revisiting lessons. Let me know if you run into any specific trouble and I can probably help you figure it out!

Nathaniell,
I just created my first free site through you guys and decided that I wanted to purchase the domain. When I went to look at domains to purchase, it said the free one I am using is not available. Any clue on how I upgrade this free domain to one I own. Thanks.

Sincerely,
Sterling McLaurine

Since Siterubix (the free domain) is just used within Wealthy Affiliate, you'll see TONS of cool domain names available.

Unfortunately, many of those will be already taken when you start talking about .com domain names. The whole world is competing for those domain names, and many good ones are researched, then bought up by big companies that then just sit on them, hoping to make a profit.

That's OK though!

1. You can change your Siterubix.com domain to ANY domain name you want. It doesn't have to match. As long as you like it and it's relevant to your niche, you can move your free site to any .com site you want.

In other words, you're not stuck with your current domain name if you find the premium version is not available.

2. There's an easy strategy to get ANY domain you want for cheap, even if it's already bought up. See here: Hope this helps! Let us know if you have any more questions about domains!

Anyway was reading your success story post and thought I'd drop in to comment on the dog. Any time I see a bulldog I gotta say hello <3

Natahaniell,

Here is the page I am trying to make into the Home Page

The Leaking Barrel - The Beginning

It doesn't show when I go to `Visit Site` and yet it appears when l go to `All Pages`

How can I make that into a Home Page with the links to Pages and Posts?

Thank you so much, Naathaniell

Hi Nathaniel - I was reading about the ways to make money - blogs, articles etc. I have - some years ago - written a book. About 130,000 words on How to Join the French Foreign legion. It is still available on Amazon/Kindle but earns buttons. It sounds like this could either be the base of a web site to promote or just jut it down and create an article. There is still massive interest in how to join and where to go etc. (And what to expect) The young men who are 12 years old now will be my customers in 5-10 years time. What do you think would be better - an article (Or series of articles) of a web site linking to Amazon/Kindle...?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
I would update the book, then start a website in the same topic. You can leverage the website to send traffic to the full book.

Your site can cover some of the same topics, just rewritten and with videos, images, etc. You can also write about related topics to spark peoples interest who don’t know about he French foreign legion!

my 1rst month discount ends in 3 days...
I feel a bit pressured as i believe i'm not ready to go premium yet
i'd like to soak in the starter training for a while and make sure i have a strong enough base to move to premium
if i understood correctly i would then have to pay the full amount when i'm ready...
what do you do ? rush things or loose the discount...
Reply
nathaniell Premium
You can upgrade at any time, no pressure! The discount is time sensitive though. As of now I’m sure you can see that the WA training is legit. You absolutely get $19 worth of value. The main questions to answer is whether or not you have the time and interest to build an online business.

A business can make a lot of money but it does take a lot of work too!

Can't recall if I left this message earlier today or not. If I did, sorry for the duplicate. I am having trouble placing Ad Code from Amazon associates on my website. Also, I want to place adsense from Google adsense on my site as well. I can't figure this out either. I am getting highly upset here. Ready to pay someone to do this as nobody can seem to give me the right info on how to do it. I went to the chat room and got answers that did not work. Maybe it is my Catch Box Theme that is the problem? Do I need to change to another theme? Do I need to pay for a better theme? IDK.

I'm not sure what's going on with your sitemap. It should look like this: https://wayneworkfromhome.com/sitemap.xml

It looks like there's a link on your site which is exactly that, but it redirects. Did you make any kind of manual redirects? Your sitemap currently directs to https://wayneworkfromhome.com/site-map/ which looks like something you created.

My suggestion would be to delete the plugin, re-install, and create the sitemap (don't change any settings).

Hey brother, I have a quick question. I have looked at several different ideas for affiliate marking.. One if them is adult content. I have no problem going to a different host for that particular site but just wanted to see if I could somehow use one of the templates in the website builder on a different host. (this is all under the assumption I cannot host here.). If I am wrong and I can then host it here then Im all set. Please let me know,I am very respectful of what we are doing and all that I am learning and absolutely do not want cause waves!

Thank You,
Travis
Reply
nathaniell Premium
It depends on what "style" of adult content you do. If you're talking about toys, sexuality, dating - that type of stuff which could be considered "relationship advice" or "science", then you'll be fine here. If it's straight up porn, then you'll probably need to find another host (though you can contact Kyle directly to get his opinion on this).

WordPress is the same everywhere, so you can still use the training to build your website. SEO, ranking, all that stuff which is necessary to build your business will all work the same.

The downside is that you won't have access to WA-specific stuff:
SiteComments
SiteFeedback
SiteBuilder
SiteContent
SiteSpeed
Free SSL
Free domain Privacy
Free spam filter & enhanced website security

The training will all still work though, the community will still be available to you for questions/answers. There are plenty of people that choose to host outside of WA for various reasons!

Hi Nate, well I'm very lost in the themes, I will take a break from it. I will have to use PC2 and do the work here. As in View instructions on PC2 while doing the work and saving all on PC1. Some instructions for the themes are separate from my dashboard so it's the only way other than writing it all down or printing each page. NOT. I wrote two posts and the theme I picked is plugged in but the picture is different on the front page. I only want that photo. Or I may go with the Nude theme which is offered (a blank canvas) May try for one more hour 6:54 pm here AZ time. Winging it. Carlo

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 am on Lesson 9/10 in Level 1 on Keywords. One of the tasks is to "Find 5 Keywords that meet the keyword criteria". My question is, does he mean 5 keywords in a row? I did about 32 Keyword searches in Jaaxy and saved them. But I am confused by what Kyle means by "Find 5 keywords that meet the keyword criteria". I know that the criteria is (related to niche, 30 avg searches, less than 100 competition). But finding 5 keywords that meet the criteria I am wondering if he means in a sentence?
Reply

He just means 5 separate keywords. In other words, 5 topics you will write about. Each keyword will be a different topic.

I highly recommend you go through the courses in order.

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.

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!

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!)

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.

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.

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.

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!!

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.

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?

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 :)

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.

I've been studying and been involved in affiliate marketing in the last 2 years. 2 years of NOT SUCCESS, but never give up. Every in-success has a seed of SUCCEES right? :D

This community looks great to me. First impact is great. I believe that a community of people that are wiling to help you succeed is the real great secret.

Sounds like it has been quite a journey to find your way here to WA Giovanni, but I am glad you did.

There definitely are a lot of scams and programs that simply do not teach you what you need to know out there. It sounds like you may have run into one or more of these on your way to making it here at Wealthy Affiliate. I can assure you that much brighter days are ahead now that you have found WA and I really do look forward to working with you.

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!

Yup, working through the videos. First question: What if i do have a product? A) can I sell it? B) can I set myself up to give out affiliate commissions?

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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!

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

Hi Nathaniel,
Thanks for the invite.
I need to know if this is the same system as the AMS on Amazon please?
I was interested in that system but it’s a little bit pricey for me at this time,it’s a great system.
I’m going to need your help with this system for I have no idea what I’m doing,but I just want to stop working for other people and wants to be my own Boss.
Waiting to hear from you .
Thanks,
Andrea Brown.

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.

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

Hey Nathaniell, I am assuming I signed up under your aff link. I am ready to sign up for premium, but I did clear my cookies a couple days ago due to another site giving me issues. When I sign up, will you still get commission from my sign up? Or do I have to do something else to make sure you get it?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Yes, I do get the commission. You signed up through my link, so your freebie account was listed as my referral.

Thanks for asking Sydney!

Hi Nathaniel! It is nice to meet you. This is really my first endeavor in trying to make money in line.

Hi Nat. thanks for folluw up.i start these things mobile but its too much. Hard to read for true engagement and understanding. My understanding is WA isxa hosting platform of sorts.I xan set up my website (s) and have a foundation for afiiation sellling my clothing line etc?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
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.

Let me know if this answers your questions!

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.

Hi Nathaniell, Just want to thank you again for the support you've given so far, it really helps. 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!

nathaniell Premium
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! I'm fine...….so I was looking for a way to make some extra cash online and I tried doing that computer savvy posting links thing.....but its just a bunch of training videos and its way too hard to even try to figure out. 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.

PetKing Premium
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.

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.

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.

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

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!

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!

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.

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. :)

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 Emily.

Hi Nathaniell, I had sent a previous message where i asked about how in the world can you bring a lot of traffic to your site when a million other people are using the same keywords you are using? How would you sum up what ultimately makes the difference in bringing buyers to your site? can you answer that? i want to hear it from you, since i clicked on your sponsor link. thanks

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.

Awesome. Natural pregnancy is a very passionate topic these days, so you already have a great niche and focused niche audience picked out. You're doing great so far, because that's a big hurdle for a lot of people, and you can use your personal experience to write for your blog!

PS. I highly recommend you have a computer to build your website. Doing it on a smartphone will be tough, or maybe not possible.

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.

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.

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

There definitely are a lot of scams out there and by no means are you alone or should you feel bad that you have fallen victim to these vultures. Much brighter days are ahead now that you have found WA and I really do look forward to working with you.

If you ever need anything at all going forward, I am personally here to help you out so feel free to drop me a reply to this post or drop by my personal profile.

Hi there, I'm just starting out and not sure where to begin, i am interested in selling some products from clickbank, and have started setting up some free websites. i will have to do as much for free to start out since i have to be sure i'm even on the right path. There are lots of vids on utube on how to get started, so just trying to sort out info right now. I want to set up one simple site for one product and then figure out out to drive traffic to it. I don't care if i just made 10$ a day, but i'd like to start seeing some results before trying to go deeper. Any thoughts you could share on what i could do to get going? thanks! Olivia

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.

I know lots of people want to make sales first, to "prove" the system works, but you really do have to build a foundation to your business before you start making money. That's what the first steps are outlined to do. I think once you dig into the training you'll see that WA is the real deal, and will get you the training you need to be successful online

Thanks Nat., does all the training cost money or is much of it included in the monthly fee?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
The training, hosting, classrooms, chat, and webinars are all included. The only things not included in the $49/month fee is your domain ($14/year) and the premium version of the keyword tool, which is options ($19/month)

Hope this helps Olivia!
