Hi thank for offering to help in the live chat just now. I'm new to the affiliate marketing world and i have just started making my way through the training this last week, it my last day tomorrow to take advantage of the $19 first month offer. I just don't wether to just carry on with the free membership for now with the 2 fee websites and test the water. I thought premium gives you .com domain names but as you mentioned its doesn't and you pay for these separately. what would you suggest in your opinion about upgrading??

thanks in advance

Hi Tim, thank you for the follow, and I am returning the favor. In your list of interests you mention copywriting. It feels like one of the most important skills to keep developing here is copywriting and really just general writing as well. This is one of my areas of focus right now.

Hi Tim, thank you for the follow. Germany is a nice place to be, I was living there around the Kaiserlautern area, just an hr from Treir, a few years ago. Really like all the cities there, Frankfurt, Colon, Saarsbruken. All amazing. I especially like going to the Christmas festivals they have. Well, wishing you great financial success!

Thank you for following me Dude and nice to meet you my friend.
Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate
I love your life style and your interests, your humor.
You landed at the right place my friend. You will learn and have a successful online business.
I understood from your profile that you are familiar with online marketing but even if it's not the case you can learn.
The training is the best online training I came across. I learned WordPress and build my coaching website while following the training. I had only basic knowledge of online business and it was overwhelming in the beginning and I was stuck at the point where we have to choose and nice. I didn’t know what niche to choose.
I knew I should choose a nice that passionates me because I needed to build a website and write contents to generate traffic It's more fun to do research and much easier to write contents when it's about a subject that resonate with me and about helping people.
I chose CBD and I have 80% of the contents now I have to build a website and add affiliate links.
When I started at WA my rank was a crazy number I don’t remember exactly. I used to received follows from people with Top 200 and Top 100 badges and I was wondering how did they reach these rankings. I gave myself a challenge to be be on the Top 200 and I did. I was very active on the platform going through the training. Writing blogs, Answering questions whenever I have the answers. That’s how my ranking improved.
It has been a fun journey and it continues to be
I hope my story inspired you and I wish you all the best for the future my friend
May all your dreams come true and may you live the beautiful and purposeful life you deserve

Hey Adel,
thank you very much for your kind words! =)

Your life experience - business and travel-wise - is inspiring.
Also, from your profile description, I could almost "see" the sunset from your terrace, awesome!
It's very impressive how you went through the ranks here at WA in a very short amount of time. In the end, besides your (chosen) environment, it all comes down to your work ethic, so you definitely have my respect, Adel!
I'll follow your actions are at WA closely.

Have a great time and stay awesome,
Tim

Hello and welcome to Premium. This website is full of wonderful helpers and I have learnt to always use search, the answer is usually in someone's free training. Aside from the Certification and Bootcamp courses, there is heaps of extra training. Check out the training classrooms as well as the live events. There are current as well as past events in here. You can find both these tabs on the left-hand side. Enjoy Wealthy Affiliate. It is a wonderful community

Hello Tim,

Not sure if you have ever seen "Pinky and the Brain". But reading our profile page reminded me of that cartoon very much so LOL. When setting a goal it is best to set one that is hard to achieve. So you demand self-growth to achieve it otherwise it does not really accomplish anything.

I’d like to be one of the many members here at WA to congratulate you, on making what I believe to be an excellent choice toward a sustainable profitable website for securing your financial freedom in the near future, and that was upgrading to premium here on the WA platform.

I hope your stay here is long and very lucrative. I believe in leading by example although my back ground is not affiliate marketing directly, I have been involved in organic SEO marketing (that’s what is taught here) for over 15 years. If you ever need any additional help please don’t hesitate to ask I will be more than happy to answer any questions through PM’s that you may have.

I think you are going to see there is plenty of training on this platform rest assured it can seem overwhelming at times, but just work at your own pace, and go through it one step at a time: you’ll do just fine. Here are some locations that you can find addition training besides the two training modules:

1. Straight above in the black WA tool bar (the gray box just right of the WA icon) is a “Search Box” that has a cornucopia of information anything A-Z about online entrepreneurship, website design, and other aspects relevant to your new online business. You can find all that information and so much more hidden in that gem.

2. “Live Events” tab on the left – here you will find Jay’s weekly Webinar advanced training they are held on Friday evening 8 pm US Pacific Standard Time is when the live events happens or you can wait about 12 hours then (under the same tab) the recorded version will be available to watch.

3. “Live Chat” tab on the left side - if you cannot find your answer in any of the platform’s resources you can always ask in the member’s 24/7 “Live Chat” (please remember these members just like you).

4. “Help Center” - Issues with billing problems or membership inquiries should be addressed under this tab. This is where you will submit any ticket for site support also. Here you will also locate your premium coaches Carson, Kyle, and your referral affiliate.


WA is a “NO SPAM ZONE”, they consider posting your Domain name/URL/Social Media links/links to your own blogs/logo/company name without being asked to do so, as “self-promoting or spam” here, and this action is not allowed anywhere on the platform. Here is a link the Kyle’s posted copy of the WA rules: There are a couple of spots that you are allowed to openly post your Domain name or URL (but no logo’s or company names are to be posted anywhere on this site) on the lower far right of your profile page there is a spot just for them (not in the profile introduction itself) you can also post your social media links there on the lower right area as well, and then for your URLs there are 2 platforms which can be found by clicking the websites tab on the WA home page and they are site feedback, and site comment.

What most members do is put all there personal links in the lower right hand corner of their profile page then when you ask someone to look at your site they will know right where to go to find the link as long as you are both following each other.

Once again Welcome to this wonderful community!

Affiliate marketing is our priority: where content is KING and consistency is the KEY to your SUCCESS

Helping you, achieve your success,

Calvin

Howdy!!! Welcome to WA Premium. You won't regret your decision!! The information available here is never ending!! And the training is incredible!! Take it ALL in!!

Follow the training! I cannot stress this enough. Do not skip around. Do the lessons in the order in which they are. As well as the tasks that follow each of those lessons. I often jumped ahead in training, on my own, to only later really regret it.

Go at your pace. Slow and steady is my new rule. You'll find you can't wait to learn more in the following days. You’ll want to learn more!! It ignites a new passion within you. It did me! Gave me back my purpose for living! There were a few lessons that I had to watch twice. If that's what you have to do, do it!

And soon you will have yourself an awesome website. Amazing direction, and the tools that you need to succeed in whatever it is you want to do!

You CAN do this!!

Be awesome!! Be amazing!!! And be successful!!

Hello Tim And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined you may well have come to the conclusion that internet marketing is a steep learning curve.

You must keep referring to the training.
If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 450+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me a message anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.

Hi, Tim.

Welcome to WA. Wealthy Affiliate is a great community. In addition to the online discussions and articles that member's post, the official training is fantastic. There is so much to learn. I am here most days. I learn something new every day.

Everyone is awesome, dude. Even you!

Keep moving ahead. However your day may be, take a little step forward. Some days you'll make significant strikes, other days you will not, but do something every day, however small in building your business.

You will read many stories of WA members succeeding with their online goals. Some have achieved this in a few months, for others, it has taken a couple of years. The common theme for those that have reached their goals is taking action. Everyone who has succeeded has taken small steps every day. Do something, however tiny, every day, and you will reach your goal.

Pace yourself and enjoy your journey.

Best wishes,
Paul.
Be Happy!
