About T48
Joined April 2018
A little bit about me. I will be 70 on April 10th. Yowsers! How did that happen?? I have been trying to earn an income online for thirty years and it has been an endless string of disasters costing me thousands of dollars and considerable stress on the home front. It is amazing I am still married. However it is not in my nature to give up and I am hopeful that WA will be a game changer for us. I am encouraged by what I have read so far and those that have contacted me. I will give WA my every effort.
I spent thirty years as a family counsellor helping people with personal issues. My passion is personal development. I am retired and hoping to build a lucrative business with WA.

Terry,
Thank you for following me here in WA, and following you back, But it is my personal belief that every person comes into our lives and our circle of influence for a reason. Like you I have spent years of my life helping others, and now run a private hypnosis practice and personal and business success coaching practice.

If you ever need a bit of encouragement, or as the expression goes a gentle little kick in the rump to get you moving again, please feel free to reach out. I promise I don't bite and I don't kick hard. But I will always respond with some encouragement.

Nice to connect with you. The only challenge I have here is the tech stuff. How to do this, how to do that. Learning as much as I can as quick as I can.

Hi T,

Thanks for the follow. Your example is the same as many people online. There are so many success stories online but also failures. This proves that it is not easy to build a successful online business.

The stories about "quick earnings schemes" are "not holding the water!"

Wishing you a lot of success.

Best regards!

Hi T,
Do what Kyle said and start over completely.
As soon as you get stuck ask a question.
Go to PurrPower in your network and follow him.
Read the questions that people have asked him.
If you go to his profile page, you can read about him
and see what other people have asked.

Also at the end of every lesson there is a whole row of people that are there to help. Pick someone who is an ambassador check their profile and see if they have the purple badge -that is the program you are working.

There is a search bar at the very top of every page where you can type in your problem like "niche" or whatever you are stuck on. then lots of suggestions and answers come up.

I am new here also and not doing the niche training, but I would be willing to help direct you to the answer. Hang in there, slow but sure.

Just do something every day to move your self forward.
You can do it.
I appreciate you,
Daisy

Hi T,

If I had a problem I would:
1st - Ask my sponsor, It looks like it might be PurrPower.
He is the one after Kyle and Carson. You may want to follow him.
Then you can private message him at his profile page.
2nd - there are WA experts at the end of each lesson that you can ask questions to.
3rd - Type in the problem in the search box and there will be all kinds of info on the subject you are having difficulty with.
4th - you might have a family member that can help
5th - Ask Kyle or Carson

Believe me T, someone will help.
I would start with your sponsor, or Kyle and Carson - after all these are the ones that received payment from you!
Keep asking until you get it solved.

I am only a few years younger than you, and know how frustrating
these computer pages can be.
I appreciate you,
Daisy

Thanks for the feedback Daisy. I will try your suggestions until I get the help I need. I have been a lone wolf my whole life figuring stuff out on my own but this is beyond me. Thank you for taking the time to help me out.

Hi T,
Wondering how you are doing with the training.
Did you choose entrepreneur or boot camp.
Just hoping you are making progress.
One thing a day is something.
I appreciate you,

I choose entrepreneur Daisy. Still stuck on setup. Asked Kyle and he suggested I start over with a new site. Not sure where to go from here. Was thinking of hiring someone from Fiverr to set up my site properly.

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! :)

Hi Kyle, I have picked personal growth as my niche. Been passionate about it my whole life. Spent 30 yrs as a counselor helping folks with personal issues. Any suggestions re: personal growth as a niche?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Self development is a trap niche, as is the "life coaching" niche. Whom do you want to help specifically, self develop what? Someone looking to develop better skills in their relationship with their spouse or someone looking to get over their fear of public speaking, or someone looking to......etc?

You need to narrow this down to something that is more specific.

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

I'm very serious about all this Kyle. I just want to "get it right" and build a serious income with WA. I am retired and can devote whatever amount of time it takes on a daily basis. I have two wonderful adult children and want to help them get started in life. I also want to take my wife to exotic places now that we are retired.

You asked me to fill in the blanks to the question "I want to help people that"..... are having a hard time succeeding online. What are their barriers to success and how can I help them overcome those barriers. So what do you think of the domain name Barriers To Success? I am not going to choose something without your recommendation Kyle so please direct me to something you know from experience has a high probability of success. By success I mean profitable. Thanks

Hi Kyle, I have made some mistakes with the setup of my blog and have no idea how to fix it. I have been stuck at level 2 for over 2 months. I need a support person to go in there and fix my mistakes so I can continue with the training. I have gone over the training numerous times to no avail. it is beyond me. I just need the basic structure set up properly with privacy policy and menu and about me where it all should be. Please don't ask me to do it myself I have been over it a hundred times and I simply don't know how to fix it I am at my wits end and just need it fixed at this point in time. Thank you

Why don't you start fresh and build your website again. Sometimes this is easier than fixing a bunch of issues and the second time around things are easier.

In terms of your organization, you are in full control of that and you can do this through custom menus.

You can add these custom menus to organize your top menu in any way in which you like, as well as create sub-menus (for themes that will support this). You can also use these custom menus to add within your side widgets on your website (within your sidebar).

Here is a tutorial on how to create custom menus: I use custom menus on all of my websites (over-ride that default menu). It allows much more control and organization....both good things!

Thank you Roy, I appreciate your warm welcome. I am in the process of picking a domain name for my niche. An interesting process.

Hello Terry, that's a good start, as to regard choosing a domain name. Just one thing I would say about choosing a domain name, make sure that you don't have any dashes in the domain name, people won't remember them and they will probably end up going to your competitor's website with the same name.

Enjoy your day.

Roy

Hi Terry,

I'm glad you made it! After you begin to see the powerful tools, training, and remarkable opportunities available here, I know you will be glad also.

Your first task will be to pick an affiliate niche you are interested in. That just means you need to decide what your blog and online business will be about.

To help you out with that, I created a short eBook called 659 Profitable Niche Markets. You can read it here:

http://purrpowerbooks.com/659niches/

Just click the book cover on that page to start reading. You will also find a short video there on the "Big Picture" of affiliate marketing.

Of course Wealthy Affiliate covers those topics also. The eBook and video are just a bit of extra help if you are interested.

The WA Affiliate Program

Wealthy Affiliate gives you everything you need to succeed as an affiliate in your area of interest. Beyond that, you can also promote Wealthy Affiliate as an affiliate:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/share

With a strong recurring commission structure, and a product that people love, this is a dream affiliate program that you now have access to as a Starter Member.

Although it is worth noting that the commissions are double for Premium Members, so the premium upgrade is worth considering for that reason alone if you decide to pursue this aspect of Wealthy Affiliate.

To learn more, click the black "Affiliate Bootcamp" button at the top left of this page. That button launches you into the WA training path that teaches you how to promote WA as an affiliate.

If you are new to making money online, it will take you awhile to fully appreciate everything that Wealthy Affiliate has to offer.

If you have been struggling to get things working with your online business, then be prepared for some "light bulb moments" as you go through the training and begin to understand how the Wealthy Affiliate platform can accelerate your results.

I will follow up with you in a few days to give you a concrete example of an excellent advanced strategy that is possible here at Wealthy Affiliate. This is a strategy that is simply not possible anywhere else (check this page for that update in a few days).

In the meantime, I would suggest you take the following steps:

1. Complete your profile with a brief description of your goals, and of course with a nice photo of your smiling face! This makes a huge difference when interacting with the community here.

2. For a quick look at how easy it is to setup your first website (which is the basis for any online business), I highly recommend you take a look at Kyle's excellent video on creating your first website right here within Wealthy Affiliate in under 30 seconds (yes, this really is possible!): 3. Complete the free training lessons and videos to get started with your first niche website. Just click on the green "Get Started Here" button on the top left side of the page.

GETTING YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

The fastest way to get your questions answered here at Wealthy Affiliate is to take advantage of the live chat and the question area at the bottom of each training module. There are many members here willing to help out.

These ways are faster (than asking an individual person) because you are more likely to connect with people that are actually online here at WA at the same time you are asking your questions.

Even before asking however, the search bar at the top of every page in Wealthy Affiliate is great for finding answers. That is what I use the most.

WA has been in business for over 10 years, so almost any question you can think of has been asked and answered already. The search bar is great for finding those answers,

Have fun in your first few days at Wealthy Affiliate!
