Hi Rodney, wonderful to meet you and I'm following you now. Video games is a great niche... and you will do very well I'm sure. You have a great talent to be a professional writer. I'm terrible in writing...

I wish you much success in your online business.

Kind Regards,
Monica

Thank you Monica, I appreciate the compliment and before I go on, its worth mentioning that I was a freelance writer for a little while in the past. But, I want to focus on my energies on my passion which is video games and sharing my video game knowledge with the world.

So I have a question for you. Can I create a review for an affiliate program that I just joined or should I review a random video game; this is in relation to the question from earlier that I was trying to ask you.

Honestly, you can do either or both. What is your niche? Reviewing an affiliate program and reviewing a video game are two WAY different things.

Well, I decided to go with a game review especially since I did one recently. I put my links into the game review that I did, but thanks anyway though. For the record, you don't look old enough to be a grandma or anyone's grandmother for that matter. I'm just saying.

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 already have my niche, it's strategy and RPG video games. You can answer one question for me though, my website is on wix; can I use that or do I have to transfer my site to WordPress like one of the customer service reps was telling me? Get back to me ASAP

Have a good day

You can transfer websites directly over to Word press, so it would be a pretty manual process. You could keep that one there and any website you build forward could be on the platform here. Up to you though. :)

Well, ​I'm on Course 2, Lesson 1 and I read where it says transferring my website here onto my own domain. But it says I have to buy a domain, I already have my own domain at videogameregion.com; I don't want to have to pay for another one. How can I avoid paying for another domain when I have one or is there a way I can transfer my siterubix website unto the domain I have now? Get back to me ASAP

Have a good day

You simply need to update your DNS settings and I have sent you instructions on how to do that within my last message to you.

I got all of that taken care of already; I'm sorry if I came off a little hasty. I was just looking to get back to the training and stay on track with that. I knew what had to be done and several people here confirmed that I needed to buy a domain so I did and my website business was a wrap after that, so its taken care of. I forget sometimes that even though you're a CEO of this company; you still have things you have to do and can't always reply on a moment's notice so my apologies if I came off any kind of way.

Okay, can someone explain to me the whole earn while you learn concept and tell me about the cash credit and opportunities associated with that.

Next, I want to move on to start trying to do everything from promoting products to linking my website to this one to making money money in real time with clickbank, amazon and ebay etc.

I know there are thousands of classes, lessons, tasks and other things to complete in order to get down to the nitty gritty, but I'm looking to start trying to make my website promote product ready, and to start monetizing my website.

Also, I want to post my video game content such as blog posts and video game videos, videos of games I am playing at the present time. So having said that, I'm ready to get started doing all of the above. Furthermore, a little tip involving me, I do things better when I am given tasks in a certain order and the steps to follow to achieve that goal.

I've written my own eBook, my own game guide and have a blog about everything video game related. Get back to me ASAP

Okay Kyle, I've been doing some thinking. I am definitely thinking about putting out the 19 dollars for the membership for the first month. However, I have two conditions. The first, I need you to guarantee me that I can make that money back almost immediately. I say this because I'm overly eager to make my first real online dollar that is not freelance writing. Second, I want to work closely with you and everybody to help skyrocket my online income right away which means that I want you and other people especially those following me to help guide and tell me what I need to do so I can implement real steps in real time. I don't mean to sound pushy so please don't take offense, but I am eager about seeing money every week or month or whatever. Get back to me ASAP.

Have a good day

We teach real business here and we are realistic about the process of creating one. If you are looking to get rich quick, it doesn't exist. If you are looking to build a long term and very much sustainable business you are in the right place.

I have spent some time breaking down the process in the most simplistic way possible. Success online is at the core a 4 step process and I have broken them down within this video: Broken, down, the process looks like this:

Step 1: Choose your niche
Step 2: Build your website/content
Step 3: Get rankings in search engines (leads to traffic)
Step 4: Monetize your traffic (the make money part, through affiliate programs, etc!)

This applies in absolutely every niche and as you work through the training here at WA, you are going to be walked through this exact process. This is fundamental for ANY success online.

If you have any further questions let me know Rodney. :)

Work through the training here at Wealthy Affiliate and take action on the tasks. Action leads to success (that and persistence). If you ever have any questions along the way or feel "stuck", there is lots of help. Just ask.

I have three of the 4 things accomplished; the part I've been struggling with monetizing traffic through affiliate programs, that's been my problem. So I need help with that part. Get back to me ASAP

How much traffic are you getting to your website? The first focus needs to be traffic. Once you have traffic and you're getting relevant traffic, then you can start refining your promotions.

Let me know hear Rodney and I'll give you hand! L=:)

RodneyJr Premium
I don't have a lot of traffic to my website and I'm looking to increase it and then some. I haven't even begin promoting offers and promotions on site yet. But any advice is welcomed.
Reply
Kyle Premium
What are your initial traffic is going to be the result of you building out content, getting ranked, and getting traffic as a result. This is SEO And I suggest you master this, before moving on to pay traffic or else you are going to be risking a lot of money with potentially no return. That is why we teach SEO first.

That's why I'm undergoing the training module and following along with the videos, I was trying to haste my way thru this and it was hindering me. So, I'm following the videos and implementing as I go along; I'm learning a lot.

You will just need to update the DNS settings and you will be able to use your domain with the hosting here.

The DNS is also known as the "nameservers" and these are what tell your domain to look for your website, which in this case is going to be the hosting here at WA.

Here are your DNS settings again (also within that tutorial):

ns1.mywahosting.com
ns2.mywahosting.com

You can update this within your domain registrar (where you bought the domain). Upon doing so, you will be able to start building your website here within 24 hours, the time in takes for your new nameserver settings to propogate.

Let me know if you have any further issues.

Thanks Kyle, I had it handled; I just went on and followed the training. By the way, I'm really learning a lot from the training. Also, its worth mentioning that I feel as if I'm on the bedrock of internet business success and I feel motivated everyday I sit down and do this. I love it here!
