About TimMcKinlay
Joined October 2015
Hi, I'm Tim, a 30 something guy from Australia who went from working in construction to earning 6 figures per year with affiliate marketing.

I'm not a guru though.

I am just someone who believes you can achieve anything you set your mind to, as long as you believe in yourself and commit 100%. And this isn't just motivational speak, this is what I live by.

This is how I:

- Quit my old construction gig
- Became a "super affiliate"
- Met Kyle, Carson, Jay (and other cool people here) in person
- Work when I want, where I want, how I want- doing something I love

My "secret" to success:

- Follow the training, use the tools, ask for help when you need it
- Believe in yourself
- Never. Ever. Quit.

You can do this. The ONLY person standing between you and your goals, is you. And when you know this, I mean really know this, you will know that you have the power to choose how your story plays out.

Feel free to drop me a comment below, I'd love to hear from you! :)

Hi Tim.
Been a few days since I've been able to log in. Having to work all day and a host of other obligations, I thought I'd better take some time for WA training before I get cold. The niche thingy is what I most confused about. I end up going through the Bootcamp. The training is not what I thought it would be basically because I am a newbie to ALL of this, terminology, affiliate, branding, etc. I thought the training would be more step by step than what I'm experiencing. Anyway, if you have any tips for me that will help me through this overwhelming feeling of confusion, I sure would welcome it. I'm not sure if the bootcamp is the route to take; but I just have no idea what to choose. Right now I can't proceed because there's a few things I have to do before proceeding. Anyway, thought I'd reach out! Thanks for listening.

Hi Denise,

My advice is to take your time to go through each lesson, at your own pace. And if anything within the lesson doesn't make sense, then ask a question at the bottom of that training about specifically what you are having trouble with.

Also I recommend you mark each task off as complete as you go, so you know exactly where you're up to in the training and what you need to do next.

As far as choosing a niche goes, try not to overthink this. There is no 'prefect' niche so the idea is just to choose one and get rolling.

The first step to choosing a niche is asking yourself some questions:

- What are you passions or interests?
- What do you know something about or what have you researched?
- What problems have you faced, or are facing, and what solutions have you found?

These are all good starting points.

Try to think about *which group of people you are trying to help* with your website.

Starting your research around a passion or interest is always a good idea, because there are vast opportunities to profit within practically ANY niche you can think of. So it makes sense to focus on a topic that interests you.

Even if you can give me a broad idea, I can help you come up with a profitable niche idea from there. One with lots of traffic and sales potential.

Let me know, so we can get your site up and running asap! :)

Hi Allen,

You don't have to upgrade, your free training and websites are yours for life, with no obligation to ever upgrade.

I do recommend it if you can, because it's well worth it but by all means you can only do what you can do.

I actually personally know Ian (the guy who runs FIMP), I met him at the WA Vegas conference in Feb last year, so he's a Wealthy Affiliate member too :) Nice guy and great training he is offering, I haven't been through it all but there's definitely some gems there.

Let me know if you have any questions as you progress through the training anyways Allen, more than happy to help you out.

Tim

Hello Tim,
Update: Drum Roll Please........
I found the problem it is the Ads and the articles at the top of my navigation I turn my pages into post, that was part of the problem slowing down my mobile speed, I also took my pages (articles) at the top of my navigation and turned them into post.

My mobile speed is now 98 percent and my desktop is 100 percent. I changed plugins from Advance Ads to WP QUADS plugin, which is a more simpler plugin, but the Google Ads they are not showing up now, which is good, because I found a new Word Press Template its is called Blogger Era I did a test and it looks good with my content, so we shall see I probably need to update my template to a newer version for these Ads.

Oh I also am showing back up on Google Analytics. Thanks for all your patients and help:)
Cynthia,
Cheers!

I have been lied to and scammed and spent $100s and 100s of hours to make $1.76 in 2018. I'm a little bitter but still, keep an open mind. My major problem is a lack of support. I'm counting on WA being different. I am working under extreme personal tragedy in my life. I have good work ethics but when I get stuck I just need help.

You're definitely in the right place Freddie :) WA is the most helpful community within the online business space I've ever come across. As a member you've got access to the entire WA community, the founders and myself personally. So you have all the help and support you'll ever need to reach your goals.

Hello Tim,
I went to check my site health my speed in which customers load on to their devices and it says my laptop is 81 percent and my mobile device is 32 which in the red, but it did say my audit pass, so is this a concern?

I check Google Analytics no one visit my website for 7 days I usual have some activity, I wanted to know if the page speed had something to do with this?


I did contact IT recommended I look at API, it has so much information didn't know where to start, don't know what to do seeing I am not a developer.
Thanks for your feedback

Hi Cynthia,

A site speed of 32 is very bad, so something isn't right. Can you please PM me the link to your site and I will personally take a look and run some tests to see what is going on. I'm sure we can get this sorted for you asap.

Regarding traffic, your site is only new so it's normal for traffic to be up and down at first. The key is to push through this and in time your traffic will snowball.
