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! :)

Hey Tim, Tim here. I wanted to thank you personally for writing the article about the Money Sucking Machine being a scam. If you haven't written about the article, I wouldn't have found about about this community. I just found out last night as I tried logging onto their online system to continue building my webpage. LOL

Hey Tim,
Hope you are having a great day, I have a question,
I am on Level 2 lesson 3. its talk about key rich content I already did my post page I am selling jogger strollers baby items, I did my reach on my competitors they don't have a lot of words on their website, studies says that people don't want to read a lot they want to go to your website and see what they want and buy it.

What you think

Hi Cynthia,

Thank you, I am having an awesome day, hope you are too :)

There's lots of keywords within that niche, meaning lots of content opportunities and traffic potential.

People absolutely do research BEFORE they buy and they spend a lot of time online learning about the topics that interest them.

And this is where your site comes in. You are aiming to help the people within your niche, with all kinds of relevant content. This could be 'how to' articles, guides, tips, reviews, comparisons, pretty much anything people are searching for.

The best advice I can give you is to follow the training. Even if something doesn't make sense, what you need to understand is that this is a proven process and Kyle knows his stuff. Put simply, it works. So if you want results then this is what I recommend.

You are not just selling products as an affiliate, you are helping the people within your niche and recommending products that interest them. It's a bit of a mindset shift but you will get there by following the training.

By the way I did not see the "Omega" theme you mentioned.

Looked at the only three "toy" themes and the next one I think I could use has the "WooCommerce" plugin which displays site cart value (seamlessly supported(??)).

If I am going to be selling ed toys, shouldn't I use this plugin or something with similar usage?

Trying to not overthink but want to get it right.

Thanks.

Yeah so you really just want to use a simple theme. Trust me when I say the look of your site is of very little importance when it comes to making money with affiliate marketing. No frills is best when you are starting out because it leads to less issues and more focus on what matters most- your content.

To find new themes, this tutorial will help you out: Let me know how you go :)

This is great. Some selections have changed but video is on target.

You say a simple theme. Should I Ignore the need for e-commerce feature to sell stuff - cart, etc.? If so I will just pick something bright.

Awesome, glad it was helpful.

If you plan on selling your own products, then by all means get a theme that integrates with something like WooCommerce. But if you are just wanting to earn revenue with affiliate marketing, which is what the training primarily teaches you, then just run with something simple and clean. I always refer back to the Omega theme because it's perfect for what I mean, and it's also what Kyle uses on one of his sites. Totally up to you though, lots of great themes out there.

Ok - affiliate marketing is "mentioning" the product instead of show casing image of product like an online store front. (or spmething of that nature). Think I got it now.

Thanks for your time.

Yeah that's right, you are recommending good products you know the people in your niche will like. So you are more focussed on helping instead of selling in that respect.

Hi Tim,
I have a question I am working on my website adding my about page, I am missing some content, when publishing I don't see my URL permalink nor do I admin photo I only see comment section.

Then I was get ready to edit the privacy policy page I put in my website information in every spot I suppose to, but I don't see my http://www.google.com/privacy ads.html

I don't know if you all are busy I reach out to the community as well, no respond.
Hope you can help

Hi Cynthia,

If you published your about page within SiteContent, then you should be able to see it within your site by clicking on 'pages' within the left hand side menu, once you are logged into your site.

Setting up a profile photo for your site is something you will learn in the training, so my advice on this is to keep going step by step and you will learn this in due course.

It's a bit hard to answer this one without seeing your site to be honest. It might be best to send me a PM so I can check out your site and figure out what is happening for you.

This is probably because you haven't posted this an actual question to the community. To post a question to the community, scroll to the top of this screen and type a few random letters into the box, then scroll to the bottom where it says "Can't find what you are looking for? Ask a Question." and follow the prompts. You will always get answers this way, in a short period of time.
