Hello there, my name is Scott Newkirk and it's a pleasure to meet you!!

It has been my lifelong goal to find an honest and legitimate opportunity that will show you how to make money online without trying to scam you.

Ever since I turned 18, I have been looking for such an opportunity and there for awhile I thought something like this didn't exist as I have been the victim of an online scam more times then I would like to admit.

It wasn't until I found this wonderful community here at Wealthy Affiliate that I was finally able to start pursuing my dream of making money online.

I have been a proud and very active member of this community for over 6 years now and I don't plan on ever quitting.

Here's what I was able to accomplish since I joined over 6 years ago

Learned how to build a website and earn affiliate commissions recommending products & services that are near & dear to my heart.

Made my first sale after 4 months of hard work

Quit my job and earn a full time living from home after 10 months of consistent hard work and massive taking action on the training here at WA.

Help other people become successful and make money online

Made the 300 sales and received an invitation to attend the WA Super Affiliate Convention in Las Vegas (2016)

Learning different ways to build multiple sources of income & grow my business

Make money in multiple niches and further my knowledge on how affiliate marketing works.

After working 12 to 16 hours a day 6 days a week for nearly 4 months I was finally able to make my first sale and it honestly felt like I had won the lottery.

If you could only imagine how excited I was!!

If you're willing to put in the time and make an effort then you can become very successful here with Wealthy Affiliate but this will require lots of hard work on your part.

It's because of the the amazing training here at Wealthy Affiliate that I have been earning a full time income online since 2014 and this continues to grow on the daily.

Many people come here thinking that they can use the free training and then upgrade once they start making money.

This is the entirely wrong way to look at this and by doing so you are limiting your chances of being successful by up to 50% or more.

If you're serious about pursuing this opportunity then it would be in your best interest to invest in yourself by upgrading to the premium membership here at WA.

While it's not a requirement and it is possible to make money with the free membership, your earning potential is extremely limited.

My advice to you would be to think of this as tution to enroll in online marketing classes just like if you would be to enroll in classes at a traditional college.

If you switch your mindset and instead of thinking of it as a cost, think of it as an investment in your future then you have just doubled your chances of being successful in the online world by up to 50%.

Please let me know if I can be of any assistance to you and answer any questions you may have as you're just getting started.

Talk to you soon and I'll see you guys around in the community

scott, I have been on website or a week now and still do not have a niche, I am a 64 year old grandmother and do not have any expertise at any one particular thing or interest---I was married for 30 years before my husband died and have worked my whole life and am still working so there are a lot of things I like to do but do not have the time to do them--please I have started the training 4 times and still do not understand what this wa does I'm not stupid just so confused---maybe its because I did not understand that I was going to have to sell something--I don't want to sell please help me or just advise me to stop the program if you do not think it is for me I don't care to put in the work but I don't know or understand what the work is look forward to hearing from you thanks katny b

Hi Kathy,

I replied to your question from last week asking for help and if you haven't had the chance to read it yet you can check it out here When choosing a niche it's best if you go with something that you're passionate about or a hobby of yours.

There are millions of niches out there and absolutely anything can be a niche.

Have you had a chance to watch this niche video yet? If not, I would highly recommend that you take a closer look at it.

Kyle breaks down exactly what a niche is and you should be able to get a few niche ideas from it as well.

Check it out below!! Before you can find that perfect niche there are a few questions you need to ask yourself.

1. Is ______ something you could see yourself writing about for the next 3 or 4 years without getting bored with it or running out of things to write about?
2. Does_______ excite you whenever you think about it and do you feel like you have a good amount of knowledge about this topic to help other people?
3. What group of people are you looking to help within this niche? The more you narrow this down and the more targeted you get the better your chances are of being successful.

If you base your niche on something you enjoy doing or a hobby of yours, the chances of you being successful have just doubled.

If you pick a niche based on how much money it could make you then you'll have very limited success in the online world.

Let me try and break this down into really simple terms so that you can gain a better understanding of what you'll be doing as you go through the training.

The whole idea here isn't to learn how to sell but actually the complete opposite of this.

Instead, you'll be helping people by answering their questions, providing them with the information they're looking for, and leading them in the right direction (ie: Your affiliate offers)

Still confused?

Let me explain!!

How many times do you Google something looking for an answer to a question that you had?

Personally, I'm typing questions into Google daily and searching for answers to many questions I have.

Whenever I type my question in, Google is going to display the top 10 websites that have written an article on this topic.

I'll usually look through the search results and click on the one that I feel would help answer my question the best.

I would then read the article and if I liked what I read and was also in search of a product or service that could provide me with a solution to some problem I'm having, I would most likely buy the product that they are recommending.

The training here at WA shows you how to build a website and get it to show up in Google for various keywords within your niche (Keywords that people are typing in Google looking for answers)

Once you build your website and start getting rankings you will naturally start to show up in Google for various keyword searches that people type into Google.

There are currently 5 courses that go into detail about all of this and show you how to take a simple idea and turn it into a profitable online business.

Have you actually taken any action yet on any of the training or have you just been reading and watching the videos?

I really hope this helps explain what you'll be doing here at WA and if you're still confused please let me know and I'll do my best to make this clearer to understand.

Once I hear back from you and I get an idea of what some of your hobbies/interests are you can start working your way through the training.

I hope you are having a fabulous weekend Kathy and I'll look forward to your reply.

Hello Scott, I've spent all evening looking over your information reviews of Ameriplan and Wealthy Affiliates. I believe I like Wealthy Affiliate!

Like most...I'm sure my head is full of so many questions and will probably have a lot more before I get started.

I'm glad (reading your reviews) that you offer your help in answering questions...if you can.

Thank you,

Hi Deborah,

I'm glad that you have taken some time to go over the information on my website before making the decision whether you could benefit from Ameriplan or Wealthy Affiliate.

I'm glad that you have decided upon Wealthy Affiliate and I can assure you that you have made an excellent choice here.

It's only natural for you to have many questions when getting started and that's what I'm here for Deborah.

When I started here 4 years ago, I had many questions as well so I know exactly how you must feel about now.

It's really great to hear that you're enjoying my reviews.

One of the main reasons I create these reviews are to help people like yourself who're looking for more info on this topic and have questions about it.

It's great to have you here as a part of the huge WA family and I look forward to working with you in the coming days, weeks, and months ahead.

Scott, I am so glad v you put this post up, I am a 67 yr old women who lives in Maine, I just joined a week ago, am on lesson 7, I did upgrade to the premium membership. Most of the posts I see are posts that say they hve been in the business for 9, 10 months and just make an occassional sale.

My hubby and I are on SS , he works at a pet shop, but he really has a lot of back issues, he woukd like to cut down hrs but really cant thats why I am starting this business. I am doing something I love, pets food, acessories etc.

I would really be so gratful if you could mentor me, I promise to work hard. I need to be successful, it would help our quality of life significantly.

Thsnk you
