Hey Romeo, just following up on your question this morning (I responded to you PM as well).

It took me a little while to figure this one out. It's the first time I've used the new editor and in my opinion, it's more complicated than the old one. The good news is that it allows you to do way more than than the old one, it's just another learning curve is all.

So, I've attached 4 pictures, each a different step in the process.

To start you want to create a new post (or page), or add this to an existing post or page...

In the top left corner you'll see a + sign (see the first image I sent titled Step 1).

A dropdown menu will appear and you want to choose "formatting" and then "Custom HTML"

A box (or block) will appear and you can paste your code into it.

Now... it won't look like anything here so you want to "save draft" (if it's a new post or page) or if it's an existing post or page, click update.

Then you can go to the preview button, right click and choose "open in a new tab" and the preview will show up in the next tab on your browser. You should be able to see what the form will look like now that it's on your website.

Let me know if that works.

Actually, if you don't mind I'll copy this information to your profile as well and that way, if someone else is searching how to do this it can be helpful for them too, or if you need further help from the community (I'm certain there is someone who knows how to do this far better than I can and may even know an easier way) it'll be available for them to add their input too :-)

Hey Romeo, just following up on our discussion about niche choices. I did a little research which will give you some ideas to consider.

I've learned a few things the hard way, lol... so I'll explain my process when I'm doing niche research now.

First, do NOT think of you website as your "home". We own our websites and we're proud when we build them. Having visitors is great and we want to give them an awesome experience... like inviting someone into your home, but this mindset can get you in trouble because the reality is...

...your website is not for you. It's for you readers. It's about what they're looking for, what their problems are, and the solution you are providing.

Instead of a home, think of your website as a bridge that moves people from point A to point B. Your job is to provide the smoothest and most efficient path from point A to point B as possible.

Point A is the conversation in your reader's head when they type their question into Google. Point B is the final solution to their problem... in the niche you're condering, it would be booking flights and hotel accommodations (followed by getting excited, or maybe even surprising their spouse with vacation plans).

Remember... it's their point B, not your point B.

Your website is the bridge that takes them from search to solution.

What many people do, myself included, is build a website, target what we think are relevant keywords and get some traffic. Then we have an affiliate program we're promoting and we try to figure out how to get our traffic to click on those affiliate links and buy something.

The thing is... we can't get our readers to do anything. All we can do is provide an efficient path for them to do something they already want to do.

To use the bridge analogy again, if you were to build a real bridge across a river the only people who will use your bridge are people who want to get across the river.

What many of us do (metaphorically speaking) is build a bridge and then stand at the entrance with a sign saying "hey, come check out my bridge".

But the bridge is not the destination... the other side of the bridge is the destination.

That's why you don't want to think of your website like your "home"

So, your goal is to get people to their destination, not to your website. It's a shift in mindset that'll become more important as you start getting traffic.

To get people to their destination we must work backwards from point B. If point B is helping people book flights and hotel accommodations, you need to get in the mind of someone who not only wants to book flights and hotel accommodations, but is hopefully ready to.

What kind of keywords would they be searching? What is their point A?

One search example might be "Vacation in Italy" which is a relatively competitive keyword. (currently 666 searches and 184 search results - QSR).

So we can target something more specific like "Italy in the fall"... which is still a little too competitive to go after in my opinion, especially for a new website.

A little more specific would be "Italy in August" which has some solid keywords as the attached screenshot shows. You could go through all 12 months to find good keywords.

If you really want to get in the mindset of your reader, you can compare two of the keywords I've highlighted,

- "what to wear in Italy in August"
and
-"travel Italy August"

... and ask which searcher is more likely to book flights and hotels?

It's often a guess, but if I was comparing these two keywords my guess would be that the person searching "what to wear in Italy in August" probably already has their flights and hotels booked.

The person who searches "travel Italy August" is still looking.

That doesn't mean the first keyword is bad... it looks like a solid keyword to write content. It's just that your conversion rates for flight and hotel bookings with that post will like be far less. It may also be an opportunity to present other affiliate offers like clothing from Amazon, Shareasale etc.

Anyway... back to choosing your niche.

Once you've done this work and have a few good keywords, you're going to search those keywords in Google and see what comes up.

Those will be your competitors and you want to study what they're doing, what they're writing about, how they're monetizing their site and so on.

If you have few different niche's in mind, I'd go through this process for each and then you'll have a better idea of what you'd really like to do, what you'd rather write about, the affiliate programs available and so on...

Sorry, I know it's a long post here but hopefully it'll help you become more clear with which direction you choose.

That's a wealth of knowledge in there, thank you. I liked how you worked backwards from B to A, getting in the mind of the customer, those are great thoughts that helps with content writing.
You mentioned Amazon in there and i'd like to know if one can put more than one affiliate in a website like in my case, an airline and Amazon for example in the same website?

Yes, you can work with many affiliates. Of course, they should be relevant to your content and more specifically, relevant to goal of your reader.

Hey Romeo!

Congrats and welcome to WA premium!

I think the most import thing to do with any new venture is to "plug in" and be consistent. Schedule time each day to do the training, work on your site and write content. You'll find that content is king. :)

Here's to great success with your WA journey and online endeavors!

Hello and welcome to Premium. This website is full of wonderful helpers and I have learnt to always use the search tab at the top of the desktop, the answer is usually in someone's free training. Type in topic, rather than long question.
There is an answer to just about every question, all you need to do is ask..
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
Start playing with tabs and boxes on your dashboard, there is so much hidden information, just keep looking for it.
Enjoy Wealthy Affiliate. There are lots of people here only too happy to help you along the way with encouragement and helpful tips. Wealthy Affiliate is about training, but that is just a small part of this wonderful community. If you participate as well as train, you will gain so much more.
cheers

I forgot to mention the other day that I am going to still be offering you my awesome bonuses if you join within the next 4 days.

Here are the bonuses that you are going to be getting:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)
(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there. Where else can you access the CEO of the company for help?
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well Romeo and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)

Hi Romeo, and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.

I just wanted to reach out, say Hi and see if you have any questions.

The community is also available if you have any questions, and... Kyle or Carson (Wealthy Affiliate's co-founders) will often stop by and welcome new members. Just hit reply to any of our messages if you need anything.

Just a couple things to keep in mind...

One - There's no rush to interact with the community (when you're new it's understandable if it takes time to get comfortable). Many of us know the feeling...

You're more than welcome to hang out and "listen in" on our conversations and when you're ready, join in. But please don't hesitate to take advantage of the opportunity. The support here at Wealthy Affliate is the best in the internet marketing industry and the connections you make here can change everything.

Two - You can always get access to me for one-on-one help by leaving a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/j-kwest (as well as responding directly to this message).

There are a ton of other features worth exploring and they are all explained in the main training... just hit the green Get Started Button in the top left (if you haven't already).

This is where you'll learn how industry experts are earning passive income online...

... but there is so much more. You can meet and talk to those same experts here as well... and you will find out they are real people with similar stories to your own and are happy to help out and share with you what they know. If you've ever felt "in the dark" about making money online or how home-based entrepreneurs are doing it... you won't feel that way anymore.

You also have access to the exact tools we are using, and the same training that teaches you how to use them.

Before you go, I'd just like to ask if you can respond quickly to this message with just a few words so I know you made it inside the community? I'd like to connect with you so I can keep an eye out for your questions this week.

I look forward to getting to know you and following your success. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if there's something you need.

I am a stay at home father of two and i just had to pay the rent and school fees, getting the finances sorted before going premium. My family only had one pizza for Christmas because i told them that i had to register with you guys, so they sacrificed that i may learn from you and change my life. I'm wiling to learn from the bottom. I have just started using the computer like few months go and a lot is still new to me. Any help from you guys to change my life is very welcomed

Hey Romeo, yes... happy to help in any way I can. As you work your way through the training you'll probably have questions so please don't hesitate to ask... I try to check in with members a few times a day if possible. Make sure to utilize the community as well... there's a wealth if knowledge and experience here and everyone is very helpful. Community and working together is what really shortens the learning curve :-) Glad to have you here.
