About RobKK
Joined May 2016
I have always done well at holding down jobs, but I'd rather not have to do that anymore. I am homesteading in a rural area and most 'jobs' require driving a distance. Also, I've got plenty of work to do without leaving the driveway, and while mostly it takes time, occasionally it takes money too. Never mind that I also have to eat, pay for electricity and internet access, and put gas in the truck, mower, chainsaw, etc.
So, yeah, I'd like to see some cash flow without having to leave home every day!

Hello, all, and thanks! The same day I went Premium, my granddaughter who I haven't seen in 5 years came to visit for a few days so that's where my attention has been.

Rob - I noticed that you were asking about oils on the chat line - are you after essential oils? If so I can help - just pm me and I will give you as much info as I can - I am going to add them to my website when I get a little more proficient at what I am doing

Hi! I've got plenty of essential oils myself, if that's what you're asking :) I buy them all the time ..
What I'm looking to do is hook up with online sellers and benefit from their sales LOL
So I'm working on creating this site ....

no need for the sorry :) I appreciate the assistance offer. And I'm following you now (although I still don't know for sure how that helps me LOL) but I'm guessing it will eventually. (This is my seventh day....)

You will do fine - I have only been there just 3 months myself and I have one website built and am working on the second one. Just message me if there is anything I can help with.

All righty... I was thinking I'd be able to get this all set up and running before my 7 free days ran out, and then I was going to let it run for free to see how that works out. But there seems to be no way to get all that done in seven days (I now have less than 4 free hours remaining!). Rakuten has roadblocked me for using links on a page that has no traffic yet (why would I have traffic if I have no reason for anyone to go there??)... My original thinking was that I would be setting up a website where people could buy aromatherapy products but as I'm going through the training it looks like my primary function is to promote WA and bring in paying customers .... which I'm fine with if it's going to be paying me as well ...
I'm doing this because I need money to live, not because I have spare time that needs to be used up. I'm homesteading; that's already a full-time job. I lost my away-from-home job of 8 years and I'd like to get out of that rut anyway. I'm not lazy. I'm not slow. But it seems like I'm not getting something.
*shrug*
Apparently I need to be told exactly what I should be doing here.
I get two websites for free here, if I understand correctly. One of them I'm setting up for aromatherapy customers. Do I need to set the other one up solely to promote WA? Is that where I need to start?

At Wealthy Affiliate you are given the opportunity to EITHER promote was OR promote a particular product that you are interested in selling.

If you are being guided in the courses to promote WA then you have chosen the affiliate bootcamp on the left side of the screen.

If you want to promote a particular product or products you need to go to the GET STARTED HERE courses.

They are entirely different courses and you can make money with either or both of them, but it is not recommended that you do both with one website, or even both at the same time for that matter.

RobKK Premium
Ah. Thank you!
I've completed the ten Getting Started lessons, and was at a loss for what comes next, so I moved onto the Bootcamp lessons to see if it would tell me...
OK then ...
I'm not looking to do this for free forever -- but I was hoping to at least see the possibility of generating some income that I could then USE to pay for the Upgrade, whether or not it's discounted. It doesn't work like that, right?
If I let this time free time expire without Upgrading just yet, what do I lose the ability to do?

Well, Rakuten terminated/suspended my account with them.. I guess I should have held off on using their links . So now I'm copying and deleting the pages because they said I had to remove the links, and I'm making my way through the Bootcamp lessons and hoping it'll help me figure out how to get traffic to my site so Rakuten will possibly reinstate me.

Update on my Rakuten account ermination/suspension dilemma. This is the followup email they sent me:

Dear Robert,
Thank you for your email.
We understand your disappointment and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused due to the termination of your account. The reason why we terminated your account is because your website lacks substantial content on it. Please be informed that in order to become a publisher with us, we require a valid working with original substantial content on it.
We request you to provide us the detailed information about you, your business, your website, and a description of any online channels and/or activities you undertake to promote your network advertiser partners that will allow us to evaluate how you generate referral traffic.
We are awaiting your reply.
Best Regards,
Rakuten Marketing Compliance Team

Hey, I just received the following email from Rakuten, and I have no idea why. Anyone familiar with this? Is it maybe because I tested the links myself? I sent them an email but it'll take 24-48 hours for a response.
"Your affiliate account in the Rakuten LinkShare Network has been terminated under Section 20 of Rakuten LinkShare's Terms and Conditions... Access to your account has been suspended, and all Rakuten LinkShare links on your site will no longer function effective immediately. If you have any questions, please contact us at..."

By testing, do you mean you buy the product you’re promoting using your own link?

RobKK Premium
No, no, no.... Just clicking to see if it goes where it's supposed to go...

I’m a member of Rakuten myself and I do the same like you do a few times. So far, I haven’t received such email, so that’s most likely not the cause. I’m wondering about this as well. Would love to know their response.

What else did you do?

RobKK Premium
I haven't done anything else because I have no idea what to do at this point. I'm kinda stuck.

Hi, thanks. I've been looking at places like Rakuten, CommissionFactory, and ShareASale to get links to paste onto my page. I guess that's one of the next steps I have to take. Also, I just started going through the Bootcamp lessons, so if I'm doing something wrong it'll probably straighten me out!
Reply
affilicoach Premium
Yep, those are good places to start looking for niche related affiliate products. You can send me your website url and I can take a look to see where you're up to.

RobKK Premium
it's aromasenhancelife,siterubix,com/aromas-enhance-life (periods instead of commas, of course) ... that's the page where I'll be putting the links. Whatever is there now will get replaced.

"If it smells - sniff it" I love it. :)

It's best to keep your aroma website separate from your wealthy affiliate promotion page (so do another website for that) as the two niches have different audiences.

So the steps for you going forward is to find keyword phrases that your audience types into the search engines (that you can rank for) and then create a post around that particular keyword phrase.

Once you rank for that keyword phrase then you'll start getting visitors.

RobKK Premium
To be honest, I guess, I'm not that keen on having visitors until it's working right.. So I'll await an email response.

I have gone through the first 9 lessons of Course 1, and I am now at the end of Lesson 10. I don't want to upgrade to the Premium level yet, until I know I'm going to be able to pay for it with the earnings this brings in.
I've got my site set up. I've got my "About Me" page and my "Privacy Policy" page...
Now I'd like to know what I need to do in order to have things on the main page of the site that will start things rolling.
Have I missed something?

I am a newbie here, only been here about 7 weeks. I am also premium. I also did the first set of courses, but realized that in order to get the other information to make my site work and start making money, I was going to have to go premium. There are some that have got money making sites going without going premium, but I think most of them were or are already techies that understand the whole process and know where to find all the rest of the information to make the whole system work. In premium, you get approximately another 70+ lessons, plus hundreds of videos. You need the rest of the lessons to get all the information. Also, Kyle said when he started it took him a minimum of 3 months to make a few dollars. It took him 6 months to start making a decent amount of money, and one year for him to be able to make the income he originally wanted. Hope this helps. Good Luck and Take Care.

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! :)

RobKK Premium
Thanks :)
I got the niche down (aromatherapy), and now I'm working on Wordpress to see if I can get that down as easily as the niche-picking went. Since it's close to 3am, however, I'm going to sleep on it for awhile.

Welcome Robert, to Wealthy Affiliates and thanks for accepting my invitation to check it out.

There's a lot to learn here, the best place to start would be the level 1 certification course. So start with the first lesson by clicking on the link below. Be sure to create a profile and add a picture, that way you'll get lots of help from all the peeps in WA. You'll find out how to do this in the getting started link above.

Sadly some people don't even get this far, for some unknown reason.

If you can do this, (i.e.) follow simple instructions, (implementing as you go), soon you will be on your way to making your first sale.

And don't forget that you can also access me for 1-on-1 support by leaving a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/affilicoach or by private message if you are a premium member.

There are a ton of other features you have access to right now, but they are explained in your main training linked above. Your #1 job right now is to get to lesson 1!

★ ★ ★ Access Your Bonuses! ★ ★ ★

I also wanted to let you know that if you join the premium membership in this 7 day window you'll get a TON of awesome stuff from me.

First off, you'll get a 59% discount ($19.95 for 1 month) on your membership.

☆ ☆ Bonus #1: Live Case Study 5 Part Webinar Series

Get access to a 4-Part-Series Live Case Study webinar. It's video series where a professional internet marketer creates a complete 'niche website'. All steps are included and thoroughly explained, including research, rank, content creation and monetization. Total length of the videos is 4+ hours

This will give you a broad overview of the type of site you will create on Wealthy Affiliate. I think it's always a good idea to know the direction you are headed before you start your journey.

Please feel free to ask questions in the community through live chat or the Getting started classroom above. Or as I mentioned before, hit me up anytime you want in WA.

Anyway, I know you'd be eager to have a browse around so I'll let you get your feet wet.

Best of luck, and don't forget you can always ask me for help!


Best,
Frank
