About TC5
Joined February 2018
I've played around with affiliate marketing for the past five years or so, but now I've decided to up my game and get some serious training. I have an affiliate account with Bluehost, and much to my surprise, I've even received a few commission payouts from them. Not much, but enough to know that this affiliate marketing thing really works. The problem is, I have absolutely no idea who purchased hosting through my affiliate ads, where they saw the ads or practically anything else beyond copying and pasting some HTML markup. Basically, I have no idea what I'm doing, which is why I'm here.

Hey Tom, I just wanted to check in and see if you had a chance to start exploring Wealthy Affiliate. If you haven't started the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course - that's the best place to start. It'll take you through the whole process of how to start your website and how the making money stuff works.

Click the green"Get Started Here" button on the left.

PS. One thing people get stuck on a lot is picking a topic or "niche" for their website. If you are having trouble thinking of something to make your website about let me know and we can figure it out together.

PSS. Just about every new member wants to see some success stories! There are too many to list, but here are a few of my favorites:

Actually, I have a couple of questions. I plan on paying for a Premium membership up-front rather than the $49 per month option. Will I see that option on the other side of the sign-up form? Also, are the websites we build in WA WordPress-based? If so, can I tweak the style sheet, install plugins, and do anything else I could do on a WP site?

For yearly, you need to go monthly first, then the option to go yearly will appear. Your first month will be $19 (deepest discount), then the option to pay yearly at $359 will appear. The $359 calculates out to $29/month (but you have to pay the full price up front).

You'll be pro-rated whatever unused time from your first monthly payment, so if you go yearly right away, you'll pay something less than the $359 price.

SiteRubix uses WordPress. WordPress is widely used at most hosts, which is why it's so popular! With the Starter account there are some restrictions, but with Premium there's pretty much no restrictions in terms of customization.

There are a few resource-heavy plugins you won't be able to use, though there are not many that fall under this category. I don't think there's an official list anywhere, but if you plan on buying a premium plugin, you can message SiteSupport to see if they actively ban it.

You'll be able to tweak stuff via FTP!

Let me know if you have any more questions!

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 Tom,

I signed almost 2 mos. ago and I keep straying off and looking at other programs, but I haven't dropped my premium membership here. I come to this site everyday in search of more knowledge and I find this to be the best teaching site. My big problem is applying my lessons and taking action. Perfection keeps getting in my way!

I am on the green (get started tab), lesson 7. I'm in no hurry, I'm only 72. But I have decided to push your follow button so I can keep track of your progress and try to keep pace with you. A little challenge there! When your ranking passes mine I will take you out for a milkshake. LOL HaHa. Do you remember those days when you were rewarded with a milkshake?

Hi Joe,
Great to meet someone I can slog through this stuff with. If my ranking passes yours, let's go for coffee instead. Being lactose intolerant, a milkshake would be much of a reward.
