Joined January 2017
Hi there I come from Melbourne Australia and I'm hoping to learn how to run an online business here. I like sports and trying to keep fit after overcoming a diabetic health scare over the past few years.
Recently I've been uber driving and working as a fill in school crossing supervisor, and as its currently school holidays here and my car was unfortunately damaged in a recent crash, this is a good time to start learning the WA business.
At this moment I am still thinking of a good niche and hope I can learn the basics before joining the premium course.

Just wanted to shoot you a quick message and see how things were going thus far Paul? I am here to help if you ever need a hand with anything, just holler!

PS. Also, quick reminder. Today is the last day to get your first month discount/bonuses. No rush, no worries. Just a simple reminder here. :)

Thanks Kyle I might join up now because I've got a lot on tomorrow and I had to go to a funeral yesterday. I don't want to miss the low price for the first month

Is it ok to come back and finish the introduction after I become premium Kyle? I've had a few things going on here the last few days. I just want to make sure I can finish the introduction after I go premium before I join up. Maybe I can finish the starter course early tomorrow afternoon if need be,

Kyle Premium
Yeah, for sure. You can do what you like and you can find that introduction at any time by using the search bar above. You can go through the training as many times as you like!

If you need a hand with anything at all moving forward do let me know. :)

Hi Paul,

Brad here again. I just wanted to followup with a specific example of an advanced strategy you can take advantage of here at Wealthy Affiliate that is not possible anywhere else.

A somewhat little known fact about Wealthy Affiliate is that the internal blog system here ranks highly in Google. If you are in your profile page reading this, then you should see a "My Blog" link at the top of the page. Go there and simply click on the big blue "Create a new blog" button to create your first blog post.

This is different from your own free blogs that you will create here using SiteRubix. The most well known aspect of the My Blog feature is that all your followers within Wealthy Affiliate will be notified of your new posts. That is how most people think about it and how they use it.

However, with the My Blog feature the blog posts you create show up directly on http://my.wealthyaffiliate.com. The posts are accessible there by anyone (no need for them to be a WA member). According to the backlink checker I use, http://my.wealthyaffiliate.com has over 35,000 backlinks pointing to it from other websites. Type site:my.wealthyaffiliate.com into Google and you will find it has over 400,000+ pages indexed in Google. This makes it an authority site and gives it ranking power in Google.

Even better, when non-members access your WA blog posts from google you automatically get credit if they signup for Wealthy Affiliate (e.g. your WA cookie gets set even without your affiliate link, you get credit based on the fact that they visited your WA blog post).

And it gets even better. When non-members visit your WA "My Blog" posts, if they click on a link on that page it automatically opens a signup form for Wealthy Affiliate, where you get credit for that referral in the WA affiliate program (with average commissions of $118). Even if they don't click on a link, that signup form pops up after 15 or 20 seconds of arriving on that page. Outside visitors can either signup or close the popup and continue reading your blog post. You can see how this works by creating your own WA blog post and visiting that page in a browser where you are not logged in to WA.

There is no other program out there that allows you to write posts directly on their authority site and make commissions from those posts. In your other promotions you can link to your My Blog posts without using your affiliate link, since you get credit anyway. There can be various advantages to this, as you will learn in later training here at WA.

The only caveat to this strategy is your My Blog posts should be helpful to the other WA members. You can't blog about dog training for instance, it should be about affiliate marketing, blogging and online business topics.

However, since it is all optimized to support you in making money from the WA affiliate program, this isn't really a downside. Just use your SiteRubix niche sites to promote niche topics like dog training, and use your WA Blog as (one way) to promote the WA affiliate program. For example, you could use one of your free Site Rubix sites for a favorite niche topic, and one for an online business related niche to promote the WA affiliate program.

Here is a link that explains more about how to make the most of this strategy:
Here is the next step in that training that shows how one WA Blog post is ranking in Google: Hope that helps!

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! :)

Hi Brad . Thanks for your suggestions. Do you think diabetic feet health is a good niche?

Hi Kyle I'm just wondering if there's any benefit in joining up now or just waiting to day 6 or 7 of being a starter member. I still haven't started the boot camp course or finished the starter course. I was under the impression that it would be good to do as much of this learning as possible in the first 6 or 7 days before signing up as a premium member within the first 7 days.
Thanks again for this amazing opportunity to learn and hopefully make an income online.

Yeah, you can join whenever you feel makes the most sense. Get rolling on the Starter membership, work your way through the training and then upgrade to Premium whenever it makes the most sense for you.

We want you to feel comfortable before making any decisions and if you need anything going forward do let me know. :)

Hi Kyle I had a rough time time for 2 years up until a year or so ago when I nearly died from diabetic complications. Thank God I got through the situation after refusing to let doctors amputate my foot. It was a risk because I had a staff infection which could have killed me. So I was thinking of diabetic feet health equipment. Selling devices to enhance leg circulation because I've had blocked arteries in both legs and I've been able so far to avoid major surgery on my leg arteries.

I have to join up by Thursday night here to be within 7 days of starting.

Kyle Premium
If you want the first month discount, but that is totally up to you. As for your niche, I think you could go a little broad.

Diabetic Equipment would probably be fine.

Or Circulation for Diabetics.

Both could be directions that you head in terms of your brand.

Hi Paul,

I'm glad you made it! After you begin to see the powerful tools, training, and remarkable opportunities available here, I know you will be glad also.

My name is Brad, and like you, I joined Wealthy Affiliate not too long ago. In my over 10 years of earning money online, I have never seen anything that comes close to what Wealthy Affiliate has to offer. Beyond giving you everything you need to succeed as an affiliate in your area of interest, you can also promote Wealthy Affiliate as an affiliate:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/share

With a strong recurring commission structure, and a product that people love, this is a dream affiliate program that you now have access to as a Starter Member. Although it is worth noting that the commissions are double for Premium Members, so the premium upgrade is worth considering for that reason alone if you decide to pursue this aspect of Wealthy Affiliate. To learn more, click the black "Affiliate Bootcamp" button at the top left of this page.

If you are new to making money online, it will take you awhile to fully appreciate everything that Wealthy Affiliate has to offer. If you have been struggling to get things working with your online business, then be prepared for some "light bulb moments" as you go through the training and begin to understand how the Wealthy Affiliate platform can accelerate your results.

I will follow up with you in a few days to give you a concrete example of an excellent advanced strategy that is possible here at Wealthy Affiliate. This is a strategy that is simply not possible anywhere else (check this page for that update in a few days).

In the meantime, I would suggest you take the following 3 steps:

1. Complete your profile with a brief description of your goals, and of course with a nice photo of your smiling face! This makes a huge difference when interacting with the community here.

2. For a quick look at how easy it is to setup your first website (which is the basis for any online business), I highly recommend you take a look at Kyle's excellent video on creating your first website right here within Wealthy Affiliate in under 30 seconds (yes, this really is possible!): 3. Complete the free training lessons and videos to get started with your first niche website. Just click on the green "Get Started Here" button on the top left side of the page.

If you have any questions along the way, take advantage of the live chat and the question area at the bottom of each training module. There are many members here willing to help out.

Even before that however, the search bar at the top of the page is great for finding answers. That is what I use the most. WA has been in business for over 10 years, so almost any question you can think of has been asked and answered already. The search bar is great for finding those answers.

Have fun in your first few days at Wealthy Affiliate!

Brad

Thank you very much Brad. I have an old lap top computer so I'm hoping I'll be able to get started using my iPad which I'm on now. I'm new to this and I just hope I will be able to follow along with the program.

Hi Brad as a Premium member do you have to pay extra to put your 25 domain websites online or do they come free of charge? I'm planning to go premium next Thursday and hopefully join for a year in a months time if I can get an understanding of building websites in the next five weeks. Have a great weekend Brad and thanks again for the helpful information

Hi Paul,

The hosting for your domain websites is included in your premium membership, the sites are hosted right here at WA. However, you do need to pay to register any domain names you want to use (unless you decide to start with the free siterubix sites). That is a cost of doing business no matter where you go, everyone has to pay a yearly fee to have their own domains.

You can register new domains here at WA or you can register them outside of WA and point them to the nameservers here at WA to host your sites here. If you did decide to purchase your domains elsewhere here is a helpful post from Kyle that identifies some of the other places you could register your domains and how to point them to WA to take advantage of the web hosting that is included in your premium membership: Another cool feature to consider here at WA is you can start out with the free siterubix sites and then move them to your own domain later. They make this very easy to do. If you create a free siterubix site then view it in the Site Manager, you will see a Move button that allows you to move it. They do all the work in the background to ensure the old siterubix links redirect to your new domain site etc. The easiest way is to setup a new domain at WA whether you register it here or elsewhere and point it here. Then click the move button and choose your domain site you just setup from the dropdown to start the move. A couple of minutes later it is all done including the redirects. I've tried this and it works well. If you try going to the old siterubix site after the move you will automatically be redirected to the new domain site. If you do this, be sure to keep the siterubix site in your Site Manager for at least a month before completely deleting it to make sure Google registers all the redirects to your new domain site.

Hope that helps.

Brad

Thanks Brad. Do you think it's ok to both choose my own niche and also work along with the boot camp over the next few weeks when I've become Premium. I want to spend 6 days as a starter before becoming Premium. I've got a few things going on so I I want to take 7 days. I do uber driving and my car is out of action until it's repaired. I'm a fill in school crossing supervisor and its school holidays here and my investment accommodation hasn't been paying so I'm watching ever cent because I'm getting married in a few months and my fiances family needs my help because there's a road getting put through their house in Davao city Philippines. So this is why I'm taking the full 7 days to go premium.

I think it can be a good idea to try both if you have time. I also think it is a good idea to stick with the free training until you have a clearer picture of where you are headed. Good luck and have fun with it!
