Welcome, Spencer
Great to meet you and thank you for adding me to your network.
I hope you are having lots of fun and enjoying the certificate course as it is important to complete.

Thank you Spencer for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. As a Premium Member you are probably aware of the AWESOME and FREE WA Keyword Tool we have unlimited access to.

This is the keyword research tool I have used exclusively after I became a Premium member 4 years ago and it has helped me many times to find awesome keywords that have led to Google page 1 rankings.

When you have the time, I created very popular WA Training Tutorials, Part 1 and Part 2, on how to use the WA Keyword Tool for keyword research. If you have not seen it and would like to learn how simple it is to use and a little about keywords, click the below link. Again, when you have the time.

Hey Spencer! Just wanted to follow up and see how you're doing so far. Hope you've been enjoying the training offered here and the community as well.

I wanted to share with you a training I wrote here at Wealthy Affiliate. It's called "9 Tips for Internet Marketing Beginners" and it walks you through some of the things I've learned since joining Wealthy Affiliate over 5 years ago. Check it out below and leave a comment to let me know what you think!

Hello Spencer and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you will perhaps have come to realize that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 370 blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Enjoy your day.

Hi again Spencer it’s a good idea (only if you want to) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.
Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing but.
But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.
Enjoy your day.

Thank you for the tip, but now you have me curious. What are some other practices that you find to be very beneficial for increasing your rank here on WA?

As you are a new member Spencer you should concentrate of Getting Started.
Take the training and lessons then decide on your Niche and then the Product(s) for that Niche.

Get your business up and running then you can start to help others from your own experience with helpful blogs and training as well.

You can also comment and reply to requests for help if you believe you can offer constructive tips and advice.

There's also 'Live Chat' where you can give immediate advice.

All these things will help to increase your rank but bne aware helping others will not make you money from the internet.
Only your website and your own hard work will accomplish that.

Have a great Monday.
Robert

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! :)

Hey Steve,
I would love to run my niche ideas by you if you don't mind. I have three that I wanted to pursue and then see which one was more successful.
1. men's fashion accessories
2. surfboards and surf accessories
3. men's shoes

I would really appreciate any insight or thoughts you have on these three ideas.

Why pick one? All three can be run under one general men's fashion website. I like broad niches as it allows you to write about a number of related topics.

Hey there!
I have been hearing recently about drop-shipping. I've looked into the idea and it seems lucrative. I wanted to get more insight from you guys before getting into it.
Do you currently run a drop-shipping business yourself?
If so, what types of products or niches would you recommend?
Any other insight or advice would be appreciated
Thank you!

Building an affiliate marketing business is better than a drop-shipping site. What you'll learn here will attract your own free organic traffic to your affiliate marketing business. Your drop shipping site will not have the same and you'll always have to promote it to get traffic.

I've owned 2 online shops of handmade products. Just because it's drop shipping it doesn't mean you won't have to handle all the customer service aspects of your business, which could be a pain. You will also need an e-commerce site to add products to, etc.

I've pretty much quit both of my shops to do affiliate marketing instead because it's a much easier business to manage and traffic comes to you vs you going out to get traffic with an online shop.

Just my take but you can ask Steve of IveTriedThat since he got you here and one of the most successful WA members (lucky you!).

Best to you,
Grace

Hello there! I just wanted to stop in and welcome you to the community. Wealthy Affiliate is a great place to start learning how to create an online income for yourself. I had a difficult time trusting anything on the internet and even when I found WA I was skeptical.

I have been a premium member for over a year and it was the best decision of my life! I’m not making millions of dollars but I am on my way to quitting my job to do this full time. Yes it can be done. One piece of advice I can give you is don’t stop for even a day. If you are a free member that’s fine keep working at it every single day and it will happen!

Anyways welcome to the community you have made a great choice!

Cheers

David

Hey Spencer and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

My name is Steve and I'm the owner of IveTriedThat. You signed up through me and I thought I'd tell you a little about myself. I joined Wealthy Affiliate back in 2009, over 7 years ago. I was looking to learn how to supplement my income through Internet Marketing and what I've found was so much more.

By 2010, I was working full-time from home. These days, ALL of my income comes from my ventures online. In fact, my wife just recently quit her job to start her own business as well. Internet Marketing and Wealthy Affiliate have provided us with amazing opportunities (we've bought a house, get to travel the world, and best of all, no longer spend time "going to work") and I'm incredibly thankful to the training, tools, and support here that made it all possible. :)

I'd love for you to see the same level of success. So, if you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, do not hesitate to get in touch with me. I am here to help!

To get started, you should add a short description and upload a picture. Wealthy Affiliate is a community and having a profile and a picture will really help get you acquainted here.

Anyways, thought I would just introduce myself. If there's anything I can do for you Spencer, just let me know!

Cheers!

Steve
