About Pribs
Joined October 2012
My name is Ian and I first began making money as an affiliate marketer when I was 19 years old. A lot of projects have come and gone; thrived and failed since then but I wouldn't choose anything else to do for a living.

The project that is currently my main focus is a blog called StoppingScams.com/FIMP/ where we write honest internet marketing product reviews and I publish **SUPER** high-quality, 100% free IM training. Little by little, I'm trying to do my part to renew and rebuild the face of this industry as a little brighter and a lot more honest.

I make it a point to respond to every contact and message I receive personally, so if you have any questions or think I might be able to help you with anything please don't hesitate to reach out. I'd be happy to lend a hand any way I can.

Good on you mate, I have been wanting to start an app so people can have quicker access to who is a scammer and who can be trusted. I am on my 4th credit card in 2 years through scammers and hackers and lost plenty of time, money and energy over this and, yes the industry needs more real and effective ways for people to trust whats happening online. Its a shame the poorest of people who are trying to increase their earning capacity by learning new skills, only to be burned by wealthy people who have the criminal instinct and lack of respect for others. So good luck with that work your on. All the best champ.

Thanks very much, Michael! I'm so sorry you've been through what you've been through (I hate how scammers are totally okay with sticking people with mounds upon mounds of high-interest credit card debt), but I'm glad you've finally made your way to a safer place to study online. Let me know if I can help with anything as you continue along!

Hi Ian, Hope this message finds you doing well. I have a question, I'm having some trouble finding a niche. Shouldn't your niche correlate with the product you find, that has the most potential to sell? this is confusing me. I understand you have to attract a audience but, what if the interest doesn't sell?
Reply
pribs Premium
You just have to be sure to pick a niche that deals with a "buying audience" — which means people that will typically make a purchase to solve their "pain" or answer their question if you direct them to a good solution.

Song lyrics? No.
Cookie recipes? No.

People dealing with back pain? Absolutely.
People trying to holistically treat an ailment or disease? Absolutely.

It's a fine line, but that's how you prevent going into a niche that won't produce consistent income.

Hello. I just stumbled upon this post. I have been working full time on my website here at WA for almost 3 months.

My website is lovethehotsauce,com and from your above comment I am afraid that making money on my site isn't possible. So far I made 57 cents on an amazon commission.

Is there anyway you could glance at my site and see if you can think of anything I can do to gear some posts/articles towards a buying audience?

I know you don't know me, but I would really appreciate your input. I have invested everything I have into trying to get this going and I really need some help.

P.S. I also started a WA affiliate site howtostartmyownwebsite.com about a 1.5 months ago. It is hard to give both sites the time they need, but I thought it was important to have my niche site and the WA site as a backup.

My first site is a lot more fun for me, but in the end I just want to make money on both them.

Any advice you can give me would be awesome! Thank you so much for you time. Sorry this message is so long.

Hey Jamie! I took a look at your site, and I agree that your concerns are probably very valid here. This site would need A LOT of traffic to make a decent amount of money — tiny hot sauce commissions just aren't going to get you there any other way.

I recommend searching "free internet marketing project" and watching all of Section 3 (niche research). This will really round your knowledge out a bit better going forward.

I also recommend reading this article about WA Bootcamp: http://bit.ly/1FB3Rb9

I'm sorry you weren't my referral here, otherwise I could have given you this information a lot earlier! But try not to get too defeated by this: believe me when I say that the vast majority of us that have succeeded in this industry began our journeys by hitting the "reset" button multiple times because we realized that the website we were building just wasn't going to cut it.

I hope that helps!

Hi Ian,

I have spent most of today watching your training videos. I watched Section 3 as you recommended, and then watched Section 1.

Good information so far. Thank you so much for taking the time to put it all together. I also sent a request to join your facebook group.

After watching you Niche lessons, I am not convinced that I can't make my lovethehotsauce.com website work.

I am not an expert at anything. I am really more of a person who knows a little bit about a lot of things, so my niche possibilities seem pretty bleak.

I am really enjoying my website so far, and I think I could expand the content to meet more of the criteria you laid out in your training videos.

I wanted to just run it by you and see what you think.

I know I cannot make a ton of money with just selling hot sauces. So far my site has basically been focusing on recipes, hot sauce, meat, and bbq. These things all go together to me. I have done some bbq grill reviews too.

I was thinking I could do other reviews on things like mail order steaks. I could become an affiliate with Omaha Steaks or their competitors.

I was also thinking down the line I could do articles about spicy destinations. Like Thailand, the Caribbean, South America, etc. places where they use a lot of hot peppers, and then maybe be some travel affiliate.

Do you think these are good ideas? I see a lot of potential with my website, but I am definitely no expert. I like that it isn't boring, and I have a lot to talk about. But the most important thing is that it can make money.

I would appreciate any input you could share with me.

Also, I read your article about WA Bootcamp. I see what you are saying. I only started that 2nd site in a desperate attempt to make some commissions. I really need some kind of something coming in while I am working towards my $10,000 a month :), even something small would be a big help at this point.

But if you think it is a total waste of my time to have the WA site I will stop it.

Do you have any thoughts on mini niche sites, like the football snack helmet thing?

Anyways, sorry I wrote so much. I am very excited about all of this, and really want to succeed. I am going to to get back to your training course...

Thanks,

Jamie

Hey Jamie! I think the football snack helmet site was a bit of a lightning strike — very fortunate but I don't think anyone could have seen that level of success coming from a little site like that. I personally don't invest any effort in mini niche sites — I'd rather have 2-3 sites earning $10K+ per month than dozens of little sites earning a few hundred dollars — much easier to manage.

RE: Monetization ideas for your niche — I think the mail-order steak reviews are a great idea, as are grill reviews. I think the travel destinations are a bit of a stretch and wouldn't result in very good conversions (most people looking for spice advice and spicy things aren't going to want to travel around the world to experience them firsthand).

But I think you're definitely heading in the right direction if you want to stick to that niche.

I just wanted to say that NoMoreBSReviews is a great website and it helped me in a few cases. Your blog is giving value to WA and that's why I'm hyped about this opportunity.

I have sent Kyle private messages but he hasn't reached out to me. Maybe you can help my brother's u/n is wparfitt
Reply
pribs Premium
There's no way to manually fix that. The only solution I know if is to have your brother sign up with a new account (it would need to be a new email address and from a totally new computer/IP address for the system to allow it) and make 100% sure he clicks your affiliate link and has cookies enabled. 99% of the time that an affiliate program doesn't track properly, it's because the user is clicking from one device and signing up on another, or that they have cookies disabled through their web browser.

My name is Thomas and I want to thank you for introducing WA to me. I have been trying for quite some time timing to start an online business with know success. I would start and get confused, and could not get any help. I would quit for a while and then see another offer and it would send you down the same rabbit hole. I finally got good at one thing and that was identifying the lies behind the offer right, because they all say the same thing.But when I got the offer from WA I saw right away that this was different and I did not hesitate to signup. I'm looking forward to becoming a part of the WA Community

Hi Pribs
I am looking to have a mentor to help me throughout every section of this WA journey and am asking you would be willing to be that for me. At the moment I am doing Course 1 in Lesson 9.
Im a 21 year old South African University student. In the past two years I have managed to save 75$ which in my country is a lot of money. This is all the money I have. Theres very little chance of me getting anymore money. I plan on joining the group as a premium member on my 5th day of my free trial and here is where my problem lies... With the money that I have accumulated I will be able to pay the 47$ fee on the second month since there will be enough left in my card for it. I am desperate to know if you think I will be able to make enough money off the website I am in the process of making to pay that fee because I am very invested in the program emotionally and financially. Is this goal achievable if Im dedicating 3 hours everyday to working on this craft?
My plan is to make enough money to survive every months membership fee at the moment.
Please reply to this message.

Your advice and perspective will be very much appreciated
Thank you

Hey Sifiso! Thanks for reaching out.

Your story really resonates with me, and I'm happy to help however I can. But you're not going to be able to crack multi-hundred or multi-thousand dollar monthly income with an investment of $75. You'll need to save up at least $200-$500 to spend over the 8-12 months, accompanied by A LOT of sweat equity and hard work, before you have even a small shot at cracking this industry.

I wish I had better news, Sifiso. But above all else I want to make sure people are setting reasonable goals that set them up for success, and unfortunately, I just don't think that's the case here. I'd recommend finding a full-time or part-time job that would allow you to build a bankroll that actually sets you up for success, and I'll be more than happy to help however I can once you do that.

Hey Pribs wondering if you could help me with a question,

If you have a site with siterubix and it is ranking well on google and getting decent traffic/sales do you know exactly how switching to a purchased domain (I'm considering ".com") would effect the sites google ranking and traffic? This is all theoretical as I have not yet created a site with siterubix, I ask because I would rather purchase a ".com" domain from the start than have to transfer a siterubix site to a purchased domain in the future if it will cause a big headache. If it wont effect the rank and traffic significantly or the google ranking and traffic would essentially remain the same after being indexed again by google, then I would prefer to start with a siterubix site and switch to a purchased domain later down the road.

Thanks in advance, I appreciate your help!
Reply
pribs Premium
Hey Brady! It'll be near impossible to get a SiteRubix subdomain ranking well. It's intended more as a practice environment or "sandbox" than something that's intended to have a business built upon it. This wasn't always true, but it's definitely become this way within the last few years of internet marketing. So I'd recommend building on your own .com from the start — even if you DID get the SR site ranked and wanted to move the site over, there could be a great deal of complications caused by the switch if handled incorrectly.

On dmoz they had sports, health,etc & to me that's so broad. Did you come up with a niche from dmoz? When they're asking about finding your niche, an example would be Health, product jump ropes? That's not what I'm interested in, but just trying to give an example.
Reply

Hey again Genita! I didn't pick a niche on DMOZ. When people are trying to pick a niche, I find the best guidance is to ask these two questions, which get them on a much more solid path than picking something like "jump ropes", which in my opinion is WAYYYY too narrow.

What knowledge do you have inside of your head that would help the most amount of people? -OR- What is one thing you've looked for in the past but couldn't find, and that you could work on creating for people that had the same issue?

Your affiliate programs should have tracking that shows if you've converted any clicks into sales. And affiliate commissions should be stated pretty clearly by the affiliate program you're choosing to promote as well. Just look for stats, and look for commission details before you choose to promote a product.

Hey Jurg! Wealthy Affiliate isn't the best program for learning eCommerce-based businesses like you've mentioned here. The "Get Started Here" training can be really good for any application (intended initially for affiliate marketing), but I believe what you've stumbled on is the WA Bootcamp (where you learn to promote WA), which is NOT something I personally recommend.

Hi Ian, quick question

I have bought a domain and decided on my niche, which is chemical engineering resources for college students. The website was going to have lessons on chemical engineering topics and some textbook/online course reviews. But as I look at the keywords for this niche, it seems like there really aren't many people looking for this information at all. The average monthly traffic is 20 or 30 searches per month on these keywords. I'm thinking about switching to another niche. I'm trying to avoid the 'sunk cost fallacy' mentality and jump ship before I spend any more time on it. What would you suggest?

Hey Juan! If that's what the keyword research is turning up, your instincts to avoid the sunk costs fallacy are spot-on. I'd do the same, as much as it stings.

You gave such a warm welcome to someone who just went Premium, so I decided to "follow".

I came to Wealthy Affiliate just 4 months ago, and that was my first introduction to affiliate marketing. I saw the word "overwhelming" used quite often when I first started, and felt it countless times. But the training and connection with the people here, has really maintained my sanity, lol.

Looking forward to becoming part of your network Ian.

Hey Pribs,

I'm here as another one of your referrals. Just popped by to say hi and introduce myself.

I have some past experience with affiliate/internet marketing, but if anything, I've always been too sceptical of schemes and never really jumped into anything. I'm fortunate not to have been burned, but I've also never really succeeded.Hopefully I can change that now!

I visited your Stopping Scams site which I thought was great and a nice approach, and that finally brought me here. Usually that might have been the end, but with a bit of research and digging I figured WA sounded like a good community and worth a shot, so I'm looking forward to getting going.

Hey Dan! Thanks for stopping by to introduce yourself, man. I'm really happy you found your way here -- it's the safest place for someone that's never made money online to find their start, and I wish it was something I had when I was first getting started in internet/affiliate marketing over 10 years ago.

There's A LOT more to learn in internet marketing outside of WA - by no means is it comprehensive (I think it's fair to say that would be impossible given the size of the internet marketing industry), but it's the best place I've found to pour a foundation by far.

I'm always around if you need me or end up feeling stuck anywhere. I check up and answer all comments/emails at least once per day, typically even on the weekends, so if you can't get the help you need from the community here, just shout.

Best of luck on the journey ahead! As hard as it can be, try to enjoy the process too. It'll make life a hell of a lot easier ;) Keep me posted!

Hello Pribs. I joined WA yesterday after signing up through you link to the Black Friday Offer. Thank you for mailing me about that offer :-) After finishing the sign-up process, I was directed to a welcome page inside WA with a video, a letter to read and some questions to answer about goals (I think?). But that side dissapeared upon reloading, and I can't find it anymore. 1) Can you lead me to that site? 2) Also, I got a message saying, that there was a problem with the registration/paying proces, and that I therefore was not let in to WA. But here I am, so I don't know if there is a problem or not? Can you help me? Thanks. Joergen

Hey Joergen! Could you send me an email about your annual purchase? And I'll send the bonus info your way.

1) Yes, you can send that tour by clicking your profile image in the top-right of the screen, and clicking "Take a System Tour".

2) This would be something that you have to reach out to Kyle about - unfortunately I don't have access to billing/administration systems here to troubleshoot this. Send Kyle a message here on WA, or email him at Kyle@WealthyAffiliate.com.

I hope that helps!

Hi Ian

Just joined WA via your link. I am unsure if WA is going to be for me, maybe you can help. Whilst I have not entirely discounted an affiliate website, my thoughts are I want to create my own content and possibly courses. Being new to IM and at risk of sounding a little dim (!), is this really only for affiliate websites, or would it be be a good place to learn generally about content marketing. I seem to be doing nothing but watching various videos on various sites and feel like I am getting nowhere fast. Should I actually be looking at another community which specialises in content marketing?

I work full-time as a public librarian. I have my hands full, but I have a strong desire to build a wonderful future for me and my children-that includes lots of travel. I am very new to all of this and have zero experience, but willing to learn. Thanks.

Hey Niki! Thanks very much for stopping by and introducing yourself! I sincerely hope that you find everything you need here at WA to give your children that you envision and feel they deserve. That was one of my biggest drivers when I got into this business too, and I've taken some extraordinary trips (with my laptop in-tow) since! Best of luck on your new adventure and feel free to reach out if you can't find the help you need in the training/community here along the way.

Thanks for the follow! Thought I'd just like to mention that I admire you for taking a stand against scams in the industry. I tried to become a successful affiliate marketer in my late teens, but never have I ever found a site as good as Wealthy Affiliate. The others sites I tried provided poor information and in hindsight were trying to make a quick buck. I lost hope for some time, but I gotta say that it's refreshing to see someone with good intentions that actually offers to help those trying to get off their feet. I commend you greatly on doing that. I have a lot of reading to do, but I feel like this is a start of a journey for me that'll lead to something great. I'm excited for what the future holds!

Hi Ian, thank you for dropping a kind message. Loving the training course 1 and i can't wait to be a premium once i settled my payment issue.
I'm actually interested with A.Bootcamp but have decided to put aside first because i believe we need at least have decent internet marketing earning experiences to truly promote with original & unbiased contents. Your blog really highlighted this part very clearly.Thank you!

Hi Pribs! What if I make affiliate link shorter through Google URL shortener? Will it work? Sometimes this short link has another letters from the same page in WA, but the image of that page appears the same in all cases after the link is placed.
If my referral sets up 100% account but instead of photo he makes image of something, does it has a difference for credit?
I see that I earned 2 credits for completing 100% profile, but in 'Revenue' I see '0'. If I have chosen min. threshold $10, will I see in 'Revenue' $1 in November,1? On my PAYPALL account, as I suppose,the first sum will appear only after I reach $10 and at the first of the month. Am I right?

Yes, you can use a URL shortener without any issues. And no, no difference in credit. You have to cash out your credits for them to show up in revenue.

Hey Pribs,

Just a question for you, if I will to upgrade to a Premium account. For the domain, and hosting wise, will I be able to gain access to unlimited and free domain name, and hosting as long as I am a premium member?

The reason why I asked this is because I wouldn't be just using the domains, and hosting purely for affiliate marketing business. I will need to use those resources on creating my own blog for my own coaching business which is something that I'm putting my 200% into now.

Cheers,

Yi Shen

Hey Chew! Good questions. Not unlimited free domain names. You have to pay annual fees for every domain name (typically around $14/year/domain, including private registration). For hosting you're limited to 20 or 25 sites, which should be WAY more than enough.

Hi Pribs, I'm Joseph from the Philippines. I apologize if my English is rough. I'd like you to know that I'm very determined to do everything to reach my financial goal. Well my real goal is to gain "wisdom" and "knowledge" because I believe that having those two is the most important thing to earn enormous amount of money. For me, I can earn money using my wisdom but I can't buy wisdom because I don't have money right now. so "wisdom" is my main thing here. I lost my old man when I was 16 and raised in a very poor community. My Dad died with hundreds of dollars to pay and left nothing to us. But it didn't stop me to pursue my goal. I graduated high school with the help of my relatives even I'm 4 years older to my classmates. After graduation I tried to apply to several call centers here in Manila and unfortunately failed 8 times during "INITIAL" interview. That was because my grammar wasn't good and I don't have experience that time. Now I'm working as a "customer service rep." for almost 4 years now and I highly believe that was because of my "determination" and "burning desire" to achieve my goals in life. 3 years ago, I always say that " I'll become rich someday" but didn't know what to do or how. But because of the thing I call "law of attraction" I believe my subconscious mind wavelength reached the right wavelength of ways to getting rich. I have many plans to execute to become rich and this affiliate marketing or online business is just 1 of my stepping stone. I created and formulate principles of my own to have a "happy life" or "reach your goal" techniques and these are all based from what I learn from the internet, books, seminars and mentors around the World. I called my principles "The 4 pillars". These four pillars are "Spiritual health", "Emotional health", "Mental health" and "Physical health". This is like a training or guide for people who wants to achieve goal or currently experiencing problems in life. I highly believe that before you begin your journey to achieve or start any goal weather big or small, you need to have a strong four pillars for future problems and managing yourself in any circumstances or decision that you will make like for example "quitting and changing your goal". Many people started what they want and when they encounter problems like "serious problems" they quit easily because they have very weak "Spiritual belief" in themselves. Sometimes they are too "Emotional" on the things they wanted to have or needed to have. They are very scared to take risk because they don't know what to do or to invest their money on something and the reason is lack of "Mental knowledge", for me the person is the one who is risky not the investment and that is because once you know and have proper information about on something the risk will get low. And the reason they have weak spiritual and emotional health is because of having a weak "Physical health" or lack of exercise and proper nutrients. Yoga helps our emotions to be positive and also good for our body. Eating healthy food will boost our immunity and provides essential nutrients to our mind. Now that I discover your courses and your website, I'm very happy to learn from you guys. My wavelength matches yours and that is something for me not coincidence or destiny. I created my own World and will continue to have good things inside of it. Guys like you are very blessed with gifts and believe me, you will achieve your goals and YOU WILL HAVE A HAPPY PERFECT LIFE.

-Joseph

Hey, Ian! What is the difference between http://siterubix.com and my own paid domain? I see that many names in http://siterubix.com are available which are not available in paid domains. Why is this! If I choose free http://siterubix.com I probably need to use one word name because it will be too long with additional siterubix. Will it affect on ranking in Google if I choose siterubix or my own domain?
Reply
pribs Premium
SiteRubix won't rank. You'll want your own domain if you want to build a long-term business.
Reply
John77 Premium
Thank you, Ian! I think at the beginning while we learn to build site maybe enough siterubix, especially if we can then transfer all content from this website to another own domain in WA. There is another reason not to buy domain at the beginning because there can not be appropriate affiliate program. I wanted to choose niche Music( broad), then I narrowed it to 'sell music beats'. The program offers commission up to 50%. At first I listened to beats. Then whole day I devoted to the name of the site. 'beats for success' 'beat cocktail', 'beat drug'. These are the best for me available in com. ( if to use the word 'beat') Then I started to dig deeper to find what exactly the commission. In fact, it is only 10% for affiliates. It's good that I didn't buy one of these domains as I wanted. I have even chosen already about 15 beats I would like to sell, and thought about melodies and vocals it would be good to add there. Now I think about another name for my site related to music( probably broad and brandable) that can reflect many aspects of music in one, two words. The name will contain deep inside my idea about music. It will be original and memorable. I already found that name. It is available in com. and can fit to any subniche in Music.

Ok, I need a little more help here Ian. I'm stuck, and I've completed Phase 1, and I'm anxious to move to lesson 2 of Phase 2 training, but I can't get my template to cooperate.... and I think it's the wrong template to begin with as it appears to only have 2 menu items "Primary" and "Social Media".

Will you please help me choose an appropriate WP template that will support page & or blog additions... more menu item potential. I will be adding content almost on a daily basis for the next month. Like I said, I think the template is half the problem, and not sure how to how to change templates efficiently even if I had an appropriate template

Thanks,

You're mistaken and misunderstanding WP menus. Primary and Social Media are the LOCATIONS of the menus, not the menus themselves. You need to add your posts/pages to the primary menu to get them to show up in your site navigation. I strongly recommend familiarizing yourself with menus more: https://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Menu_User_Guide

Anyway, my perceived problem is that I've already signed up for multi site hosting at Siteground incl. Hacker protection deal totaling $107, so I would like the straight story on whether there is even any difference between siteGround and WA Hosting. I don't want to be involuntarily connected WA. If not, should I be able to get a refund from SiteGround?... purchased 8-24.
Reply
pribs Premium
Depends on SiteGround's refund policy. I'm not familiar with their offering at all (that strikes me as a very off-brand hosting name, as I've been doing this for years and never heard of that hosting company). If their offering is similar to HostGator, BlueHost, 1&1, etc. then yes, what they're offering is very comparable to the hosting here at WA. You'd actually get more features and better safety if hosting at WA.

Reply
pribs Premium
Typically you would want to give them several options (probably at least 3-5). You'd want to offer the path here at WA among others that are more traditional and probably what they're looking for. Otherwise you come across as a guy that's trying to hock one solution that pays you commissions at them, and that you don't really care about helping them at all. Helping them should be #1 in your endeavors, and if you can fit WA in where it makes 100% sense and it's truly helpful to them as well, then and only then should you be promoting WA.

As long as they're truly helpful, that's fine. But if they're just there so that you can try to make a commission off your visitors, it will severely dampen your site's effectiveness and success.

Hi Pribs, We haven't talked in a while so , I figured I'd say or scream HELP ! I'm stumped !
My home page is going to be a single page with links to my affiliate sites ( 2 to start ) with 1 retail link ( @ shopify) Do I have to build a website for each site including my homepage or can I combine them as one?
I'm going to put my homepage on Facebook with the links to all my money pages as well as WA. I want to make the homepage as easy as possible for visitors to navigate but make them curious to want to visit the links. Any suggestion ?
Thank you in advance Willmar
ps. willmarpromotions.com will be my site soon
Reply
pribs Premium
It depends. If they're all on the same (or very similar) topics, you can probably combine them into one site. If not, and they're all different topics, it wouldn't make sense to combine them and several sites should be built.

Which would bring me to another point: I strongly recommend only focusing on one site during the early stages of your IM journey. If it's not enough to keep you busy full-time in and of itself, you're doing it wrong. And if you split your attention between multiple sites in the very beginning, you significantly lower your likelihood of succeeding with any of them, and at the very least double or triple the time it will take before you ultimately become profitable.

I hope that's somewhat helpful advice!

Hi Ian,
I'm Victor.
Read one of your review and got led here.
I've tried internet marketing a few years back.
Paid for online courses. Set up website. Set up blog. Paying for some ads. Wrote a few blogs. That's about it.

One of the reasons I stopped is the thought of consistently dumping a sum of money on affiliate memberships and paid ads without knowing when I can actually start seeing results. After just a few months of doubting I pulled back.

I did try to do it the 'free' way, except for the cost of webhosting. I tried writing blogs, but then couldn't do it consistently as doubt sets in, thinking this might take forever if I can't tell whether I'm doing it right or not.

Another reason is I felt overwhelmed, some pricey affiliate membership (at least to me) offer a lot of contents, seeing their community's energy, I felt that their way to success is through massive MASSIVE actions and massive MASSIVE money on driving traffic, buying ads. I backed away. I feel like I'm more comfortable being a quiet stream than the Niagara falls.

Above are some of my stumbling blocks.

I never stopped thinking of internet marketing as my way out to freedom. But I've stopped taking action. Still every night I'm losing sleep surfing the internet for hours aimlessly which I could have put to good use if I have a clear direction.

Ian, could you offer me some insights?

Aside from webhosting cost, If I were to choose a path of internet marketing which requires the least monthly cash investment like paid ads or paid traffic (if that even exists...). How much is the least that one have to invest monthly to start building something that will generate results like say, 6 months - 1 year (as suggested in the Day 1 lesson)? Would you have a figure on that? Which path would that be?
Like a business, I prefer to know the expected 'overhead' before I venture into it.

My experience with some affiliate programs is after joining, I was told to invest into paid ads, invest into driving traffic. I don't mind investing more, but spending more and more and more money without knowing the 'bottom' freaks me out.

If you could help me with the question above.

Thank you Ian.

pribs Premium
Hey Victor, that path can be achieved with just the premium membership here at WA (which includes web hosting). It's going to be a LOT of work, a hell of a lot of it, and you're going to have to work very consistently and stick as closely as possible to the training here to see results within your first 6-12 months. It's possible, but it requires working your butt off. There aren't any additional fees, unless you wanted a premium keyword research tool (which can be helpful for saving a lot of time), which costs $19-$47 per month depending on which membership level you buy.

Paid traffic isn't required at all. And it's something I advise all new internet marketers stay away from anyways. Maybe down the road, but I don't recommend it now. You're absolutely going to make mistakes (all of us do), and it's best that happens with free traffic rather than paid traffic.

If you're not in the mentality to try and tackle the most challenging thing you've quite possibly ever encountered in your life (and quite possibly still fail several times along the way), internet marketing is not an industry I'd recommend getting into. But if you can get into that mentality early on and commit to pushing through all of the challenges ahead, you have a chance.

I hope that helps!

Hey Ziggy! Yes, I buy each product myself. Rarely I can get review access, and typically it's not worth the delay/hassle (as most illegitimate product publishers would never hand over review login credentials to a 100% honest review site like money, too). So 99% of the time, we buy the products ourselves to review them.
