Hello Niel,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Niel, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Niel.

Thanks Kyle, the progress I have made with my website, is a feeling of accomplishment, but it is very slow.
It brings a lot of questions.
I need to get into the next lessons, because I want to know when it is ready to launch. I know it is never finish and I have 5 or 6 more pages to ad. So it is a work in progress.
It feels like I am not going forward, but I know it's not true.
It is very overwhelming at times.
One question: - Is there follow up email templates somewhere to use with the affiliate program?

Slowly but surely wins the race Niel. A website is never done, so don't chase the finish line, the development of your business will be a constant journey.

WE don't have swipe emails because they are not a good idea. It is bad marketing practice to speak to an audience in generalized terms, you will want to build your audience and speak to them in your voice. That is how you maximize conversions, versus some canned email marketing messages.

No problem Niel, wonderful to have you here at WA and I really do look forward to working with you! Get in touch with me if you ever need anything :)

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

I have decided to go with WA as my first marketing niche while learning to build websites etc.
I also think to outsource a website to be built for my primary business to get that going. I would like to get your opinion on that.
I will then do a few more sites with my fishing and computer gaming equipment.
I appreciate your help and input, you are an amazing TEACHER.

Hey there Niel! Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.

I wanted to show you what I do to drive traffic to my sites because I’m super excited about it!

Go to my website goringlessworld.com

First of all Wealthy Affiliate is a promote free community so I'm not going to try and "sell" you. However I would be lying to you if I said this wasn't the GREATEST thing I've ever done to drive traffic to my sites and products. Go ringless is a LEAD GENERATING SOFTWARE that can literally find you thousands if not hundreds of thousands of phone numbers, emails, fax numbers, etc. Once you have the leads, then you can reach out to them with a highlight on your business. I do this and my sales have literally jumped through the roof.

Judy, do yourself a favor and sign up first at goringlessworld.com. It’s free to sign up and I won’t send you spam, but if you like what you see then the lead generating software is for sale for a one time affordable payment and it will be yours forever to create endless leads that are focused on finding the people specific to your niche who are looking for what you have to offer. I WILL PERSONALLY HELP YOU THROUGH IT- with everything from how to use the software, to creating the ad you want to distribute to your leads, all the way to jump starting your online income to heights that will amaze you.
Wealthy Affiliate is the perfect place to learn how to build a successful online masterpiece. I'm only suggesting the perfect way to get people to your site or buy your product.

Feel free to ask me questions. The best of luck to you.

Mason

Hi Niel just thought i would pop by now you have set up your User Account, to see if you are comfortable in your surroundings. I know it can be quite daunting for some people but here you have all the backing of the community, start to "follow" other members and build your network, that way you will have a multitude of answers when you ask a question. Take care I am always here if you need help.

Thanks Gordon, I like the environment and the help from all sides, I am really going to need it. I am a Technical Dinosaur. I shall rely heavily on your help. I am a hard worker and learn by seeing only, cannot read at all, I suppose I am dyslectic.
Looking forward to the journey!

Any help I can give you Niel just ask, if you are really serious about task ahead there is no better place to get all the help you need I promise you. How are you getting on with the lessons if you have trouble reading, is there anything I can help you with there?
Reply
NielSmit Premium
I just read very slow, so I prefer to listen and watch videos. I am realy serious and have to make this a success. I have come to the end of my term of running all over the world and teach and coach people on Network Marketing, I want to do it from my desk.
I appreciate you concern and support, have not seen this on any other programs and I have investigated hundreds.
I like what I hear and see.
I am running through all the lessons, then I go back and study them.
Busy with Lesson 7 - Key words.
Reply
Gordon-D Premium
Well every lesson here starting from the very beginning comes with a video walk through, so that is going to help you enormously. Have you thought about a website yet?
Reply
NielSmit Premium
No not yet and I still have to find a Niche. My primary business do have a website, but I first have to learn how to use all the tools that you provide on this platform, to find out how I can incorporate that.

Who hosts your website and who is your Domain Registrar?
Reply
NielSmit Premium
I have registered with Go Daddy, but has not gone any further. I do have a Blog with MLSP, but what I found is they have so much info, you get lost and then they want to sell you coaching programs.
Every program is an upsell to the next. I realise that there is a lot of people doing really well with their system, but it is not for a beginner like me.
Reply
Gordon-D Premium
That is the beauty of WA even as a complete novice, you are going to get every chance to have a successful website. As far as coaching programs go, you get your 7 days free membership and after that it is completely up to you as to whether you upgrade or not. To progress it is advisable to upgrade but the choice is always yours.
If you are thinking of staying with WA, The first thing you need to do is transfer your website over to WA' You can then work on it through the WA platform. The above link tells you exactly how to do it.

Thanks, I do intend to stay, just have to cancel MLSP tomorrow.
Will defenately transfer.

Hi Gordon, I do not understand the keyword rankings, need help with it please
Reply
Gordon-D Premium
Hi Niel,
Basically you need to look for keywords that have a traffic that is over 50 searches a month, but a competition that is lower than 200. The competition is the amount of other sites that you are competing against.
It is advisable to follow the lessons as they are laid out, but you will find all about keywords in the following link, which has a video walk through. .
Hope this helps

NielSmit Premium
Hi Gordon, thanks for the info, but what is QSR and where do I find the competition number?
Sorry for sounding stupid, nut this is where I have to start.
Reply
Gordon-D Premium
Quality Search Result, QSR is the competition number, look for keywords below 200. Have you set up your free Jaaxy account? You have 30 free searches for free. If you watch the video in the link I sent you it will explain everything in there and show you how to set up a free jaaxy account. Jaaxy is a keyword research tool, and one of the best you will find
Reply
NielSmit Premium
Yes, I have just set it up and also stumbled onto QSR.
Gordon sorry for that, but to get going I shall have to lean heavily on you guys. I am BBC and I need to get this going as soon as possible.
I need to generate income to have this system on a self funding while building it into a full time business.

Gordon-D Premium
Niel I promise you by following the lessons on the Get Started green button you will learn much quicker. Have you got your website set up?
Reply
NielSmit Premium
Why do you ask that question? I have been their and tried, but felt lost.
I have to learn everything from scratch.
Give me people to talk to, training from stage and building teams face to face, no problem. With this I feel like most introverts feel if they have to talk to people.

NielSmit Premium
I choose a domain, cheched the Keywords and it looks ok. Avg 104; Traffic 18; QSR 17; KQI Green; SEO 98. Now is that good or bad and where is the signs to read in this.
