About Steve61
Joined June 2015
Currently I live in southeastern Michigan, even though I was raised in Chicago. I began tutoring math in high school and graduated in math education from University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana. I enjoy helping others understand math!

I'm now a grandfather and desire to have the time freedom and means to visit my children and grandchildren with my wife. (NC, AZ, & IL make costly trips!!)

I envision an internet business income as a means to fulfill the dream of time freedom for continuing my personal interaction with family. Wealthy Affiliate presents a genuine atmosphere of helping others achieve their dreams. I would like to be a part of that!.

Hi Steve!

I have roots from Chicago, IL too - my father was born and raised in Elmhurst, IL. We frequently visited when I was young. Thank you for following me. Let me know if I can help in any way.

Keep in touch!

I was raised within the city limits of Chicago -- east of Burbank, north of Hometown! I still have family in the surrounding suburbs.

Thanks, Sarah! I also believe essential oils have tremendous benefits, especially as we see the shortcomings of pharmaceuticals in addressing certain health problems.

You are absolutely right! we must trust in nature, it provides us with everything we need... Ever since I started using essential oils I stopped getting sick!

What condition did you first apply essential oils on? I was amazed at how peppermint on the temples could eliminate headache pain!
Reply
BelieveItYes Premium
Peppermint is a must have. I always carry one bottle in my purse lol. I use it for headaches, stomach pain, nausea or even when I feel tired!
I mix oils and create remedies for all kinds of conditions... it's a very complex science!

I've had individuals share the same. By rubbing a single drop on their hands and by cupping them over their nose, they inhale deeply to "perk up" -- increasing alertness!

I was wondering how to structure affiliate marketing such that a link from an individual's website could be tracked.
IF the specific service was performed, then the amount of compensation would correspond to the size of the service performed.

For example, "wiring a garage" would be different from "upgrading electrical service to a house". So would there be a way to create an a affiliate marketing program which would enable businesses to expand while compensating individuals who drove traffic to those service sites?

Affiliate programs will give you affiliate links which are tracked using cookies. In order to get affiliate commissions, a website or company must have an affiliate program set up.

You are not creating the affiliate program, you will be joining others. There are millions of products you can promote as an affiliate and this is going to be covered later on in the training. :)

Thanks for clarifying. Are there resources available to help companies set up an affiliate program if they do NOT have one in place?
Reply
Kyle Premium
There isn't because setting up an affiliate program is a very thorough process that requires programmers, the involvement of payment processors, affiliate training, etc.

There are platforms like cj.com and clickbank.com that can be leveraged for setting up an affiliate program depending on the type of product.

I appreciate you explaining the amount of work needed to set up an affiliate program. A business or business owner would have to determine the ROI to move forward in setting up an affiliate program.

Yes, most definitely. It would have to make sense and in order to build out your own affiliate program, you should have defined and proven strategies for promoting your product.

If you can promote your product successfully yourself, that is when you can have an affiliate base promoting it for you.
Reply
Steve61 Premium
That makes great sense since you will have had to work through many of the issues related to your product. This enables you to "work out the bugs" so that you can offer an effective affiliate program.

Kyle Premium
Exactly the case, it becomes much easier to scale your success this way.

Hi and welcome to WA, Thanks for following me back.

If you can help people (which you have lots of experience with through teaching), you can create a successful business doing so. This goes for absolutely any niche Jeremy.

Over the years I have personally been involved in many niches and the same principles held true. If you help someone, you build trust and once you have trust, you can generate revenue through your promotions. Not until then.

That is what you are going to learn all about here at WA and the proper strategies to create a business online. I look forward to working with you and if you need a hand with anything moving forward, simply drop me a reply here and I will give you a hand.

PS. I hope you are having an awesome weekend!
