Greetings,

I'm Todd and long story short, I'm an Occupational Therapist that fell in love with learning Spanish, traveling, South America and Colombia. Lived the last 6 years in Medellin, Colombia and traveling.

I've started various businesses, guest homes abroad, drop shipped/imported and now I'm a successful affiliate marketer that makes (wake up/passive) money online thanks to the training I've received here at WA.

I've been a WA member for 5 years now. It's been an awesome experience of learning how to develop my skills creating websites, writing content, marketing products, and realizing my dreams of making money online.

The key is building website traffic - You'll learn all about that latter.

And the other key is having help on your campaigns (posts) even directly from the owners. After you get a post to get 2K+ hits per month and you're not converting sales as high as you want - you can ask the owner for help. How cool is that, instant improvements that result in increased sales. Sorry, I digress.

I've had my ups and downs with this business just as anyone will. But the truth is that Wealthy Affiliate is the best online training center in today's market.

There are soooo many freaking scams online it's not even funny - and even more inadequate/incomplete training programs that actually teach you how to make money online.

But WA has got all the tools and training for ANYONE to succeed. You just have to stay consistent to the program, take action on what you learn, and you too can make your dreams of earning passive income online a reality.

Don't forget to catch Jay's weekly Webinars - they're loaded with gems of knowledge to increase your online traffic and profits.

I took it one day at a time and each day my online business improved. I'm now at a place where I outsource most tasks and my online business continues to grow daily as well does my revenue. You can do the same thing too if you go for it.

If you never take a chance, never take action, you'll never get anywhere, but if you take a chance and bet on yourself, follow the training here, you'll be incredibly surprised at what you can create.

It's a beautiful thing.

The only other way I can think about this opportunity that WA provides is using a reference of going to college.

Say you were told that if you spend one year going to college, you'll produce a regular nice income, and in another year, you'll create a sustainable online business that is better than more than what 50% of the college grads will earn after 4 years of college (but doesn't include $100K of debt). And at the end of 4 years, you'll make money like any other high demand professional, but you'll do it from anywhere in the world and on your terms - This is what WA offers.

So the question is...

Are you game?

To your happiness and success, Salud
Todd

Hi Todd
I trust this finds you well and happy. I have a bit of a problem. I moved my domains that I had via Weebly and brought them over to WA. Seemed like a good idea at the time but what appears to have happened is that in doing so I have disabled my Email accounts that were linked to my domains. ( Which has disabled the email account linked to my WA profile as well) Are you able to point me in the right direction for overcoming this problem please?

Hello, Todd. You're the only other OTR I've seen on here except me. What school did you go to? I'm a grad of Washington U in St. Louis. Really enjoyed reading your interesting bio.

I have a friend who was from MN, but met her husband when working in South America. (He was an international accountant working in Brazil.) They loved it down there. Don't think they came back stateside til their oldest daughter was school age.

Thanks for reaching out Carol. I went to CSU in Fort Collins. I just let my license drop in 2019 but am actually starting to work on my therapy based site: TherapyBoy.com

Great to connect and love to check out your site sometime.

Hi Todd. I considered Ft. Collins, and Iowa City before deciding on Wash U. Chose WU because I already had 65 hours prior to deciding on changing my major, and their program was designed for juniors to transfer into their program with 60 hours (their liberal arts stuff outta the way)

I'm not licensed any more, either. Didn't renew it when I retired.

I just found your website in Google search....WOW!
I am amazed and overwhelmed
I joined W/A 10 weeks ago and I realise after seeing your website what can be achieved by being with W/A and sticking to the training and being persistent.
I know that I have a lot to learn but I have a dream. My dream is to see the children in Kenya (and other countries) have the opportunity to be educated and make a difference to their country and the world.
Please check out my profile and maybe review my autobiography if you have the time and interest.

Hi Sylvia,

Thanks for reaching out and I love your aspirations. I took a look at your site and it looks like you’re taking classes and doing well.

You might want to put your website here within your Wealthy Affiliate profile. That way it’s easier for people to go and check out your site because it’s a clickable link.

I look forward to watching your progress and let me know if there’s anything I can do to help out.

Hey Todd! I loved reading your bio and it really inspired me. I’m currently just a college student looking to make some more money and your story inspired me to do that. I hope I can learn in some different ways from you on my path to success!

Hi Nolan,

Thanks for your kind feedback and you've found the right place to begin your online journey.

I think once you go through the training you'll see that it's not that hard.

Just stick with the training and ask for help when you need it. I think the biggest issue with people not having success online is just because they give up too soon.

Have a great day!
Todd

Hi Dale,

I'm the one who recommended WA to you from my website. So there's no assigned coaches, but I try to help every member the best I can and I'd be happy to share what I can to boost your success.

As to your message, I responded to your profile message about a month ago. Just look at your profile. I asked you if you needed and help and you answered me with a... sure. I responded with... @Dale9255 Anything specific Dale? The messages are automated, but I'm a real person. If you need a hand or want to shoot any ideas by me, just let me know.

Thanks,
Todd

Otherwise I don't have a message from you in my inbox, I checked.

I try to help all members out, premium or free. As to date I don't think I've missed any messages, but I could have made a mistake.

But yeah, reach out to me anytime you need a hand and I'll do the best I can to help out. You can always bounce your ideas off of me or once you've gone through a bit of training and would like to have me take a look and review your site, I'm happy to help. As well I like to make sure you are on the right path in terms of seo, ranking, site design, etc..

Cheers,
Todd

Ok no problem I remember now I couldn't respond to you unless i went to the premium level. It took me a while but I am here now. I just needed to start when I had everything ready. Thanks for the support So you are my affiliate? I will start digging in and see what happens.

Cool Dale and I'm happy to help. I'm just a student like you but I've been at this for about 5 years now. You can hear my long winded story on my profile but I want to see students get off to a great start and so I think it helps to have a mentor/teacher. Once you go through keyword research and finish your first keyword based/targeted post, send it to me and I'll send you some solid feedback.

This business, at least to get started isn't that hard. Pick a niche, start targeted traffic (which is like writing a book report) rank content that helps your niche audience, refer them to a solid niche based product that betters their lives.

That's the gist of it. After that you get into email marketing, ppc, etc., but for now, get the basics down. So send me your first post once you've got it all polished. Not your first pages, but your first post.

And as always, you can ask me when you have a question, the community, or just search the search bar above. There's tons of training's and so forth.

Cheers,
Todd

I have all these people following me and wanting to me to follow them. It is like Facebook 😂. I don't know what it is all about but I will figure it out. Thanks for the help and enjoy your evening
Reply
tmaltz Premium
Yeah, there's a social component that is similar to Facebook. People invest a good amount of time networking on here. I certainly have made some great connections and find that I grow and learn more by following certain people. Some challenge me and make me think of things that I can apply to my own business.

At the same time, I was careful to not read ever message or spend all my time socializing. I was here for business and so that's why I encourage people to reach out, help others/network a bit, but stick to the daily training as your primary focus. Forget the money for now and focus on learning and building.

There's a pay it forward mentality here. People will help you out like you won't believe and then you'll find yourself doing the same thing once you get some knowledge under your belt.

It's a great community, somewhat of a secret weapon, but just know your intention for being here and stay on track.

Hope that helps!

Big time. I will pay it forward eventually. I am not a social media person so focus will not be a problem. When I get to where I want then I will teach and help. I am a sales trainer. Teaching is in my blood. Probably will be part of my marketing. I am not sure yet

That's the spirit Dale, sounds like you'll fit in here well. Enjoy the classes and try to catch the Weekly Webinars (Live Events) on Fridays or past ones. I tried to get a new one in per week to add to my education here.

Nice to meet you tmaltz☺ I'm slowly but surely getting my picture and a short introduction of myself taken care of so I can check it off my to get started list. I'm very excited about making lots of money online but beware this is a first time internet buisness for me. I'm actually very surprised that I have gotten this far without spending lots of $$$ for a buisness that failed from not having the support I truly needed. I checked out all the questions others had when first beginning their new online buisness and I was AMAZED to read all the tips, suggestions ect from other community members. Plus the support was there very quickly with easy to follow instructions and answers to each question. Thanks in advance for the help and support I'll be needing from you along the way.

Hi! I am really glad to come across this site. I hope it will really help me. I did have a question on the websites. I already have my own website/blog with WordPress and have my own domain and hosting already. Do I have to create a new one or can I use my existing one and link to this platform? Thanks!
Reply
tmaltz Premium
Good questions. You don't need to do anything with your hosting or anything if you don't want to. You can just take the training like everyone else.

That being said. There are some great benefits to having your site hosted here.

WA Hosting Benefits:
- You get access to their commenting platform: this is great to build site trust and is easy to get comments via this system. Arguably additional comments is more content and so it possibly can help with post rankings.
- Last year they added Site Speed. So no need for site speed/compression plugins. This helps your overall speed which helps your seo.
- Free SSL certification. Sites that are safe (https vs http) rank better, convert sales better, and are required if you decide to take your site and turn it into a membership site or accept direct payments.
- Free photos and some other benefits from hosting here. Take a look at the Websites tab, I'm sure there's more.
You can also host up to 25 sites under premium if you do any local seo for other online businesses or have more sites yourself.

At the same time, you don't have to. You're call.

Let me know if you have any follow up questions.

Thanks,
Todd

Hey Todd, I left a review through site-comments and was really impressed with your website. You mentioned Thrive Membership. I there anyway to get the Thrive Membership or Theme etc with a one off payment or is it always a monthly payment?
What is the cheapest way to get started with Thrive?
Reply
tmaltz Premium
Hey John,

I think they only do yearly memberships (I'm sure I heard this in one of their webinars the other night).

I bought yearly immediately at that comes out to $19/month. I was paying yearly for LeadPages at $30/month and what a massive difference in products. Thrive is sooooo much better than anything that's out there in my opinion.

With Thrive, there's really no limitations in what you can do with your site. I'm currently planning Free and Paid Courses with their Thrive Apprentice to build my email list and create another revenue stream. You can even turn your site into a Membership Site.

So I will be keeping Thrive for years to come. Great value!

Anyways, if you do buy it, could you please use my affiliate link here in my review?

If so that would be great.

Thanks and let me know if you have any follow up ?'s.

Cheers,

JohnJStanley Premium
Thanks Todd, I will read your review and look into it more. It looks like $19/month is the best deal then. My site has been going since July 2018 and not earning yet so I'll have to consider when is the best time to upgrade. I'll let you know later when I have any questions. Much appreciated, John
Reply
tmaltz Premium
Yeah John, I get it. If you've got traffic, I'd consider it. The main reason is that having a clean, professional site is great, but having a stunning homepage/landing pages and intriguing optin's make all the difference in your financial results.

I can only tell you from my end I could kick myself for passing over Thrive 2 years ago. I just updated over 430 posts (since changing over in September i think) and what a lesson. For example, my bounce rates and exit rates for my new post that I make with Thrive Editor are stunningly lower than my older posts. They're more visually interesting to look at and get that visitor to engage in the content.

It's one of those things that you almost have to see work. Then it's like the saying... "hindsight is always 20/20".

At least you can check out their site and see their free educational videos and stuff. Maybe down the road!

Cheers,
Todd

Hi mate
been in a funk..lost a bit of my way...have been letting this WA review become a monster in my head..and so backed off doing anything...But i know it's just my old ways kicking in. So i'm trying to stay positive and get moving again...Especially after reading Kyle's Black friday Post...it gives me more inspiration to know it's possible with a little hard work put in over time will reap rewards.
So all good my friend thanks for checking in appreciated

Awesome Marcus, thanks for the update and sounds like you are back on track and ready to take action.

And really, that’s the most important thing. Get something out there/published, even if it’s not perfect, get it done. You can always go back and improve on a review or post, but if you never get anything composed, you’ll never get anywhere.

Always take this approach with online business my friend.

Have a great day,
Todd

Hi, I don't usually follow links like this, let alone sign up LOL! But I've been interested in affiliate marketing as a way to bring in some extra money. And I've read good things about this platform so I did it! Any tips and any of your experience you are willing to share is always welcomed. I would like to make the most I can out of this.

Hey Randi,

I have messages that I send to help out along your journey and I'm always here to bounce ideas off of or ask questions, so is the WA community.

This is an amazing platform, what you do with it is totally on you though. For starters, follow https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/jerryhuang He's a young man who's made some great training's and has had some amazing success here in a short period of time. Love his work ethic too.

As for my take. You should just buckle down and start taking classes.

Once you find your niche, start doing keyword research to explore the topic and know that it's the right fit for you. Also make sure you've got at least one awesome product that will help your niche audience out (that you can market).

Once you get your site built out in a couple months and you're earning free organic traffic, send me an email and I'll give you a few more awesome pointers.

Otherwise it's follow the training, catch the weekly webinars (left men says Live Events) and reach out when you need help.

Here's the first course... Best,
Todd

Hi Tmaltz,
This is something totally strange to me but I feel like having a go and see what this will look like. I have heard about online marketing and that sort of stuff but have no idea how it works. Thus this is strange land to me but its good to venture into something strange and hope something meaningful might happen.

Hi Celsus,

I was into eCommerce before I found WA and I had no clue about internet marketing. If you've made it this far, why stop now.

Check out the Live Events section (left menu) to see some of the webinars the do here.

And start taking classes. That's what I did. I just started taking classes about 5 years ago and here we are, what a cool journey.

Let me know if you need a hand or have any ?'s.

I am totally confused in the process of adding affiliate links to my web pages. I feel like I am following the steps outlined, but nothing seems to be working. I am using Amazon Associates and the link Amazon provides me with looks nothing like the link in the video. It must be at least 8 lines long? Can you create a "cheat Sheet" that outlines each step of the process that someone like me can follow?I have tried several times tonight and I feel I have followed the steps correctly but I must be missing out on a step or steps in the process. I think I will give it a rest for the remainder of the evening and try again tomorrow. Thanks for listening to me vent!
Reply
tmaltz Premium
You can grab different types of amazon links. Just grab your text link. See the screenshot.

But ?.... Why are you adding affiliate links to your site?

Are you getting organic traffic yet? If not, you're hurting your site by adding affiliate links. Did the training tell you to put affiliate links in yet?

Get some rest, the battle begins again tomorrow ;)
Reply
bella2018 Premium
I'm not sure about organic links Todd. I got the impression from the training video I watched that I was adding affiliate links. Maybe I misunderstood. I am going to watch the training video again tonight and try to get a better understanding. Thanks for the continued follow up with me!
Reply
tmaltz Premium
I'm referring to having organic, or natural traffic (not links, i never said organic links) by ranking content.

That's the basis of what we're trying to do at this point. By adding affiliate links, you're hurting your chances of ranking for your targeted keywords.

So if you don't have organic/natural traffic coming into your site, you shouldn't be adding affiliate links yet.
Reply
bella2018 Premium
Then I am totally confused Todd. If I follow WA training as it is presented, the lesson I am working on is found in level 3 lesson 4 entitled "Adding affiliate links to your pages". There is no mention in the training about having organic traffic coming to my website before progressing to the step of adding affiliate links. So maybe I should bypass the assignments for this lesson which ask you to add at least two affiliate links. I don't understand. Can you follow up with Kyle or Carson on this one? I'm sure I'm not the only one following the progression of training and may be trying to do the same thing I am doing. Good grief!
Reply
tmaltz Premium
I’m not trying to confuse you. If they’re telling you to do that during the training, that’s fine. I imagine they’re telling you to do that to a centralized review.

The task is more to teach you to limited the amount of affiliate links you add, how to add them, and to add them to one centralized review.

After that you’re going to write other posts that you link to that centralized review.

I haven’t been taking the courses in over four years, so maybe things have changed.

In general, you don’t want to put affiliate links to a post that doesn’t rank. If it’s your landing page, or your sales page, that’s different.

Then your taking current posts and linking to that sales page. The sales page then links the user to your affiliate product.

Just follow the training and keep it simple. Sounds like I’m just confusing you.

bella2018 Premium
Thanks for clearing things up for me Todd. I will proceed with the training as outlined. However, I am still having problems getting these affiliate links to work. I am planning on attempting this again today and I would like to send you screen shots of what I am seeing when I attempt these links through Amazon. Maybe you can help me figure why the links are not working. Each time I have tried to do this per instructions, when I click on my words associated with the link, I get a blank page. I should see that the links go to the Amazon page and product I am attempting to promote. Many thanks again. I'm not trying to be difficult and I do appreciate your assistance. I've just been a little frustrated because I am stuck on this training lesson until I can get the affiliate links to work. Thanks for your understanding.

OK Todd. Here is my follow up message regarding problems I am having with linking of affiliates(Amazon) to my web page. I wanted to send you screen shots of problem areas but for whatever reason, my screen print program would not send to my desktop. So, I am going to break things down step by step from the training(level 3 lesson 4).
Step 1-Go to Amazon associates webpage and search for product you want to promote.(This doesn't seem to be a problem for me as I have been able to find the product I want to promote and get the affiliate link from Amazon).
Step 2- copy affiliate link and go to my website page/click edit post(no problem with this step either)
Step 3-highlight words/phrase you want to use to create link/click link button/looks like chain(can do this step too)
Step 4-window pops up that gives instructions to insert/edit link. this is where the initial problems seem to start. In the training video from Kyle, there is a larger window that pops up to insert/edit link. When I do this, I see a very small pop up under my highlighted phrase that states for me to past URL or type to search. There are also two small buttons that give me the options 1)to apply and 2)link options. I have been inserting the copied link from Amazon into this small pop-up window and hitting the apply button. From there I then click on the small button to link options. At that point in time, I am then brought up to the larger pop up window to insert/edit link(as shown in the video). I remove the http.com URL and paste the affiliate link here as well. I also click to open link in new window and then click add link.
Step 5-hit update on your post and then click to view post(This step I can do). I bring up my post and check the phrase/words that I have attempted to link. The phrase changes color to a yellow color and you can see the little "white glove" hand as Kyle mentioned in the video. When I click on the words associated with the link, I am then brought up to a blank page. In Kyle's training, by clicking on the highlighted words/phrase, I should then be taken to the Amazon website where one can see the product I want to promote and be given the choice to purchase. I have yet to be able to click on my associated words on my web page and be brought to the Amazon page to purchase the product. I have continued to try several different ways to connect to the affiliate link for someone to place an order.
I know that this is a very detailed outline of the problems I am having. Hope you can decipher my ramblings and some of these steps make sense. Let me know if you run across something I am either doing or not doing that would cause the affiliate link to not work. Again, I thank you for your continued patience with me!
Reply
bella2018 Premium
Todd! I think I just figured out what I was doing wrong. I just attempted to link the affiliate product a new way and when I checked my page, low and behold, the Amazon page popped up with the product I was attempting to promote! Whew!!!! What a lesson learned for me. Now if I can just remember how I did this, I can continue on! hope you didn't go blind from reading the previous post!
Reply
tmaltz Premium
I think in step 5 you are removing part of the url and this is causing the issue.

If I do the same steps. Grab a link from Amazon. I don't edit my amazon link at all. Just past it in there.

Try that and see if works.

So highlight the word/phrase. Click the Link Button, add your url in press enter. Save your post, go check it. Should work no problem.

Good Morning Todd! Just wanted to touch bases with a progress update. I decided a few days ago to suspend my training until I could work on my site.

My focus now is on the content of each post. I changed the headings of some of the posts based on keyword search through Jaxxy. Hope this will lead to additional traffic to my site.

I also included an embedded video to one one my post that I thought would be appropriate. I may want to try one more video of me actually playing flute, just to prove to viewers that I really can and do play flute.

I took out the buttons for Facebook, Google+ and Twitter as I felt they were distracting. Also, I removed WA banners for now for the same reason. My focus is on content! I will keep you posted and let you know when I am ready for your review of my site once again. Take care!

Thanks for the update Barry. That sounds awesome. The only thing that I would tell you is to not remove your social media buttons.

When people come to your website, you want to give them the opportunity to share that content on their social media profiles potentially getting you more visitors.

Keep up the great work,
Todd

Thanks for the feedback and good to have you here. It’s tough to find the right training out there and so I just want you to know that you’re in the right place.

With Wealthy Affiliate’s training, you can create any type of online business; e-commerce, membership site, email marketing, affiliate marketing, etc.

The key with any online business is traffic. Regardless of what style of online business you want to produce, you must have traffic.

So Wealthy Affiliate starts everybody out by teaching them how to bring in free traffic. This is done through creating content think ranks in search engines like Google (They also teach pay per click advertising at the end of the training.).

Then you incorporate affiliate marketing because it’s the least expensive and risky way to generate income online.

Once you have traffic, You can do a number of things with your website. Like I said, you could sell digital or physical products (E-commerce), Start building courses and creating a membership sites, etc.

You should look at the left menu in the section that says live events and take a look at all the weekly webinars they offer.

If you want to make an online business in the most economical fashion, Wealthy Affiliate is the best platform.

If you're looking for eCommerce/drop-shipping on Amazon, here's the best recommendation for that... https://learntogrowwealthonline.com/amazing-selling-machine-review/

That style of online business cost about $10,000 to get started.

Wealthy Affiliate on the other hand cost less than a cuppa coffee per day.

Let me know if you have any other follow-up questions.

Thanks, Todd

Man, that's half the battle right there. All the step by step directions are right here in the training. When you have a question, you ask me or the community and even the owners. You've got Site Support down in the Help Center (lower left menu).

There's no promises here except that it's been said here that WA has never seen anyone fail who didn't give up. I suppose I'm one of them :)

Stick to the classes. Here's the first if you haven't got started. Connect with others, ask questions, learn and build and you'll do great.

Also, catch a weekly webinar from Jay (Live Events). You can also go back and watch a ton of valuable webinars if you pursue your online business.

Let me know if you have any follow up questions and have a great day.

Cheers,
Todd

Thank you for following me back Todd and for sharing your story. It's so inspiring and I am happy for your success my friend
I am a Life Coach and I came across WA while doing a search on how to promote my Coaching website with a different way than SEO because it was not within my budget and it takes time to show result.
I changed the site hosting to WA platform and I lost all the settings but not the data. I had to rebuild a new website by myself.
I followed the training. I learned WordPress and I made a better website than the initial one which I paid a web designer to do.
When I joined WA I was a bit confused about all this online business because I had only basic knowledge.
My raking was crazy number and I gave myself a challenge to reach Top 200 which I did 1 month ago.
Now I am going to focus on my website.
I wish you all the best for the future my friend and have a great weekend ahead

I have received a response from you while checking the reviews on a company offering a business like yours. I appreciate the information you have sent me. Since this is new to me I need some time to understand what you are offering. Since I have not made an investment I would think that I do not yet have a membership. Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks Donovan.

Hi Donovan,

You are a Free member here and so you can check WA out and interact with members and get to know the platform. After 7 days, you stay a free member or you can join the Premium membership.

If you want to make an online business in the most economical fashion, Wealthy Affiliate is the best platform.

If you're looking for eCommerce/drop-shipping on Amazon, here's the best recommendation for that... https://learntogrowwealthonline.com/amazing-selling-machine-review/

Otherwise, you've found the best online business training platform. I'd say explore the platform, ask questions, and start taking classes when you're serious about building your own online business.

Here's the first class if you haven't got started yet: Best,
Todd

Hello. Nice to meet you.
I see you called me by name. My first question is how can I change my profile name to Lucy L instead of LLittlewolf? Safety reasons.
Secondly, I am completely overwhelmed. I have worked with computers for years, but this is a whole other ball game. Even most of the lingo I have no idea what it means.
I don't know if I can do it or not, but I am desperate for a good income. I have a special need daughter that I need to be able to care for much better than I am now. Finances are very tight, but I see right off I will need the premium package. Not sure how I will be able to swing it, but have to figure it out.
I appreciate you answering me.
Oh, I did try to go into editing, it let me edit there, but did not change it next to the icon.

As for online business and your personally challenges:

There's no better place to get started online than WA. It's not expensive but will require you to learn and work.

If you can learn a new skill, you can do this. It's not that hard but does take an openness to learn and desire to create your own online business.

You also should expect to make much money to begin with. You have to build something of value before you see online sales.

I'd encourage you to get a side job and work on this on the side.

if you don't have time and can't afford it now, maybe in the future.

But if you're looking to create an online business in the most ECONOMIC fashion, this is it.

Hope that helps, let me know if you have follow up ?'s.

Hi Max,
Check out all the weekly webinars in the Live Events section (left menu).

WA's training is so special because it's all white hat seo. So you can use it to learn exactly how to rank in Google and/or YouTube, etc..

But you can also apply WA's training to most any type of online business (blogs, ecommerce, affiliate marketing, email marketing, ppc, etc).

Lastly, I've been really impressed with WA as a member for almost 5 years now because they are constantly updating and improving their tools and resources.

Take a look at the Website builder Site Rubix (Websites tab - left menu). You can get feedback on your site, comments to boost rankings and site trust.

Anyways, WA is a no brainer, welcome and let me know if you need a hand or anything.

Cheers,
Todd

I'm surprised that you actually have time to contact me directly, but I'm really glad. :)
I'm doing great, how about you?
I've registered at the wrong time, I'm currently really busy with my College exams, so the next few weeks are hell for me. I'm not sure I'll have much time for this amazing platform. I've definitely found it very interesting, and if everything is as half as good as it seems now, I'll definitely come back to gain as much knowledge as I can. I really hope the rest of the community is as friendly as you are.

Thank you very much for revealing to me such a great platform!

Edit: I have one question, I've tried to checkout a domain, but on paying page there is no Serbia (my country) as an option, is that a problem? Can I maybe select some other country? Thanks in advance.

Hi Stefan,
Good to hear from you and what a great time you are at in your life. I went to college for Occupational Therapy. While it was an awesome career and knowledge base, I'd have loved to pour my energy into something like this 20 years ago instead of $1,000's of dollars on school.

Anyways, I'm busy, but I try my best to help out. WA is a really cool place and they have a pay it forward attitude here. Somebody helped me, I'm helping you, maybe you'll do the same down the road.

No worries on the timing as well. You've got a free account, search, read, learn or just wait till you have time.

I did something similar. I found WA and was traveling S. America so I didn't have a chance to dive in for a few weeks.

But the classes are at your own time and so's the development of your site. Just replace some activity like watching tv with building your site/online business.

A couple years ago I built a site with 5 pages and 1 post. Got that post to rank well and left the site for a couple years. That post ranks page one in Google and the site has made like $800 bucks without doing anything to it. So it's cool when you know what you're doing because it's easy to create a little passive income business.

The more you build, the more you make.

Let me know if I can help.

Cheers,
Todd

Hey Will,

Just reach out to me or the community when you need help.

Things are great for me thanks for asking. I've been with WA for over 4 years now. It took me 9 months to go through the training, but there's a ton of benefits here as you'll soon find out.

Yeah, WA is the single training program that I can attribute most of my online success to. I had to work hard and make the business work, but I wouldn't of made it without these guys.

They took me from newbie to becoming a successful internet marketer.

I've got an online business that makes more than most full time incomes and it functions on auto pilot. Right now I'm pushing it to a new level to reach new goals, but I feel pretty blessed to have found WA.

The biggest thing is to work hard and not give up. It takes time to develop your skills and build an online business of value, but it's all worth it when you've got the freedom and ability that an online business provides. A 9-5 job or even a professional career can ever compete with the benefit of an online biz.

Hope that helps,
Todd

Hi, how are you? I have been sick, so just now getting down to business. Im going to have to change my routine to accomodate WA but I am committed. I am wondering what I should be doing with a blog. I have never done a blog before. Also, I have a few ideas for websites. What criteria should I use when determining my first niche. I always give up because I make things too complicated, focusing on big picture instead of narrowing my focus. Also, I get impatient. So I need to focus on building my business and not worry about profit now, as Kyle had said.
Any advice you have about website, blog or staying motivated is appreciated. Hope you are having a great day.

Hi Laura,

You sound like me. Gosh I'm impatient sometimes and I was horrible going through this part that you're going through.

What I found worked was to forget the money. Even today if I focus too much on traffic or money, I correct myself, and then refocus on doing something productive to my site.

First thing to straighten out: You're building a blog, but a blog can be turned into an eCommerce site, a small niche site, an authoritative blog, a membership site, etc..

What WA is teaching you is how to build a super strong foundation to your business through content.

Content that connects to your niche and is there to help them.

As for your niche issue. I like to look at Google Trends to see if the niche is on the rise, nothing more. Then I do keyword research and try to find phrases that I can write about that have some monthly traffic and low competition.

I also think it's critical to really like your niche or at least be interested in knowing more about it.

If you get your niche down, then it's just focus on the classes and the building aspect.

Relax, breath, slow down and find out what you like. Sometimes I just try to find one product (that cost around 50usd) that I love and you can start an entire niche site based on it.

Let me know if you have any follow up ?'s. It's important to get started off on the right track. You'll have frustrations, we all do.

It's those that don't let their frustrations get the best of them. I was almost one of them too.

Cheers,
Todd

I have a question.tomorrow is the day I need to renew my membership. It's possible I won't have enpugh money on my account to do so. What happens then? Can I renew it in few days? also if I take the monthly memership for one more month, can I go yearly the next one?
Reply
tmaltz Premium
You can go yearly at any point. They just pro rate the yearly fee.

I don’t think anything happens if you don’t pay your membership, I think you lose access to premium. But once you pay it again, you resume your membership.

I’m not sure because I’ve never canceled or stopped my membership payment.

It was about the fourth month for me when I decided that it was time for yearly as well. It’s a great decision because it really commits you and then you can focus and sort of forget the money aspect for now.

Which is how it should be. Your first 4 to 6 months should only be focused on helping people and building out your site. That’s my personal opinion though.

Have a great day, Todd

The key to success is to fallow the training and do every single task and don’t skip a single step. When you get stuck, ask for help from the community or myself and we will get you to the next. stage.

You can do this, but you got to put in the work and fall the training.

Hi Todd, Thanks for the inspiration and push! I'm embarrassed to admit, but I had signed up with WA as a Premium member last year with the thought I could trust myself to do it, but did nothing with this gift. I was totally intimated with struggling with the technology side of developing my own website using WordPress and other technology, and concepts, that I shut down. Sadly, I wasn't feeling resourceful!

Now that they've restructured the website, and I feel it's more user-friendly I let my membership renew to give myself a new chance.

I'm sorry I missed the last year's growth opportunity, but somehow I'm feeling the time is right. Your bio is what I needed to read to understand it's about leveraging time, learning, and putting in the effort while holding a day job to fund life. I particularly like your advice about re-investing any income made from this online business to keep funding it to a point where I can hire people to help me grow and run it.

I realize now it's about patience and asking for help when I feel stuck, and persisting, rather than shutting down and giving up.

Thank you!

Thanks for the follow, I returned the favor

Been doing this online business stuff off and on for about 15 years now. I never really got serious just didn't think you could really make the money that is really possible. I was taught bad habits and ran most of the businesses from a store front based website paying for placement.

Of course it never panned out so I'm giving this approach the old college try everything I have seen in the training so far makes tons of logical sense. so now its just time to buckle down , get writing, and hopefully in a couple of months start reapoing my rewards!!

See ya at the moon baby!!

Hey Judith,

This is about as real as any program gets. That doesn't mean success is guaranteed. You have to take the classes, take action on what you learn, do the assignments and work at it.

But yes, everything Wealthy Affiliate teaches works very well. Go into this like a college student with an open mind to learn and you'll do great.

I make the college reference quit a bit because I think it's crazy how many college students go off to college, spend 4 years and end up with no discernible job skills and 100K debt. This is just like a college but it's super cheap and at the end of my 4 years (coming up in May) and I have created a passive income source and full time online income.

Imagine if colleges could advertise this - amazing.

Anyways, you've got everything you need right here to make your goals a reality, you just got to put in the work.

Thanks,
Todd

Hi Todd, In building a website do I need to let people know my real profile or should I just display my profile as administrator. To tell you honestly I'm a little reluctant to expose myself not until I succeeded... I'm not a bad guy, an outlaw or someone who wants to scam anyone. I just want to avoid embarrassment from those who know me. I would appreciate your advice..

Just keep it as Admin, it really doesn't matter. Later, you'll make a gravatar so that you have a little picture like here at WA for when you comment on someone's site or answer comments on your site (you also don't have to do that either).

But most sites, or should I say most users, want to know who's behind the site. So you need a good About Page.

I'm still Admin for my main site and it doesn't matter.

There's many site owners here who have a caricature of some sort to represent their online profile, you can do the same.

Hi Todd,
I've been thinking for about three months on what I can do to make a living that suits my lifestyle. Right now, I have a Rolfing/Massage business out of my home. Been doing bodywork for 26 years. Love it, but the economy in this area of the country is not good, and I am slowly sinking into obscurity. So, seeing that you did OT work and you live in Columbia (which I have been thinking about for a year) made me click the button. I have the time to dedicate to this because business is slow. I have friends that live just east of Medillin. Hope to visit them soon. Anyway, thanks for the connection. Peace and be well.

Nice, I love opportunities like these, where you can test out a new profession.

It wasn't more than a decade ago I was feeling a bit burned out with OT. My burnout was my inspiration. I thought, why can't I teach what I give my patients on a daily basis.

Now I'm so happy to be where I'm at in life. My online business just continues to flourish and I'm really excited about 2018. Eventually I'll get back to my therapyboy.com site, but my current site is just too exciting right now.

Anyways, go for it if this suites you. If not, you could go with eCommerce. Let me know if you need any info on that or sign up for our free training course...

Just follow the training and you’ll do great. Don’t worry about rank either. Focus on the training and help others if you can.

But the focus here is you and your online business.

As for the money thing, I make full-time income online and have been doing so for a couple years now. My best day so far has been $5,000 dollars. And just the other day I made $1965 and some change.

My current six-month goal is to consistently be at $10,000 per month.

It’s all about setting good short term and long term goals and then take action on them to make it happen.

Anyone can do it, you just got to put your mind to it and follow the training here.

Usually in WP posts/pages, you have a history section up on the right side by the date published. You can go into this and see what time frames have been saved and go from there.

Some people compose their posts/pages here with Site Content (Left Hand menu in Site Rubix link) or just using a document of their own like Word.

I just publish and edit from WordPress. But believe me, I've had to re write a number of things after coming into the online business world. Call it practice if that helps.

Best,
Todd

The specific nutrition/fitness concept has to do with 'how not to break it'. (Not sure how to title it.)

A lot of people are active. They love to run and jump and play (sports) only to end up getting hurt/breaking something. Short of going to chiropractors or Orthopedic Surgeons, they're left with permanent injuries; painful; even crippling. This isn't necessary if you know how to take care of your body.

My interest in this topic is to help, but it's also a selfish one. (I don't know if it matters.) In other words, if everyone's damaged, bent over or decrepit, who will I have to play with?

def: decrepit-worn out or ruined because of age or neglect (wiki)

Thanks, Todd. Nice to hear from you. I appreciate the encouragement. My motto is "If one man can do it, another man can do it". So, I guess I can believe you when you say that you're successful with the "Wealthy Affiliate" program. I know life's not rocket science, but as a no tech/low tech, I'll have to take it day-to-day, as well.

Nice Clare,

That's the way I think about it. One day at a time and be open to learning.

Take that knowledge and take action.

It's just like college or trade school except you won't end up with a mountain of debt.

It takes a bit of time to learn, those that go into this with this perspective do much better.

Good to have you here Clare, have a great day.

Todd - I finally got signed up for the yearly membership on Cyber Monday. I tried to get signed up in the community, but I got some kind of error message. I sent an email about this to support, but I didn't really get an answer. Can you tell me how to sign up in the community? Also, is there some kind of link to the dashboard? I know it shows up a lot and that's ok so long as it works. Ron

Hey Ron, you're already part of the community my friend. This is one aspect, you can jump to the Activity Dashboard to see what people are talking about.

Also, check this out.. I think you just need to get used to WA's platform. It's pretty in depth, so just start clicking the menu bars or take the tour to get to know it.

Let me know if you need any further help.

Cheers,
Todd

Todd I know you welcomed me 11 days ago. We have something in common. We are both in the healthcare field. Difference.... I am still spending my days in my pediatric practice whereas you have mastered to stay connected to what you love and are passionate about while you travel. I will get through my training as quickly as I can and then hopefully enjoy a freedom to pay it forward in a big way. I sue will follow you!

Hi Pia,
Good to hear from you. I'd encourage you not to rush the process but to learn the lessons and then apply them the best you can for now.

This is a skill set that you are developing that will evolve over time.

You'll see this in the way that you write and how you look at various online business issues.

Take it one day at a time and try to do something that's 'moving forward' with your online business each day.

Cheers

Hi Todd: Thanks for the follow-up. It is so refreshing to find an outstanding platform from which to learn how to function on the internet. What really attracted me to wealthy affiliate is that it is a fully integrated platform where everything one needs to become successful is here.

Hello Todd,
it's really a pleasure for me to find a very friendly community that can help build an online business. For me, as for beginner, this is a great value at this time when the Internet is full of scam and everyone is only looking for their own benefits.
Thank you and thank to the whole community.
So I'll try to follow you. I start to learn and take action. I believe in success with you.

That's awesome Victoras, you've definitely got the right spirit and attitude for this educational process.

I'm probably the worst about this, but it helped me and I hope it helps you... Take this journey like going to college or a trade school.

I say this all the time, but it's true. Once you find the niche you want to start with, go forward with the attitude to..

1. Learn - be open to new systems and information.
2. Take Action on what you learn - Do you freaking homework in other words.
3. Don't give up when things get tough. Going to school for 2 or 4 years. Students put this in their head and just accept it.

The big difference with this over college/trade school is that you start to earn while you learn and at the end of your "degree", you've got a full time online business (that's if you were a good student).

I'm a good student and I can say it works, that's it.

It's up to you so GO MAKE IT HAPPEN. WA has all the resources you need to get started.

Hi Todd, I've added you to my following. Please let me know the name of the social plugin you use to get the floating share buttons to the left of your learn-to-grow site. I see it even goes to the bottom viewing mobile. I'm in the middle of leaving you a site comment so TTFN.

Hey Todd! I have run into a snag and don't know how to fix it. I have added and plublished my 3 pages as directred. The three pages show up on my dashboard, but not my site at the top of the home page as shown in the video. What could I be doing wrong? Help figure this out.

You need to activate your menu. Just go to your menu section in Wordpress's appearance section. There you'll be able to arrange things as you like. If you do a quick search here on building menus, you'll find a ton of tutorials on how to set up a menu. There's also an entire webinar in the training classes section (left menu). I believe the weather is called wordPress themes and appearances, something like that.

This is also where you can find all of the weekly webinars that Jay puts on every week.

Hello. Well that's an awesome bio that really helps support my enthusiasm for this program. I've been here since late June and became a premium member July 6, and I couldn't be happier.
I'm learning so much about online marketing that I think I'm making good progress with my site and the marketing course. I have watched one of Jay's webinars and I'm signed up for tomorrow's event. I'm impressed with your progress, it helps motivate me and I thank you

Good to know you Rick,

Happy to help and thanks for the feedback. I think throughout this process you need encouragement, support, and the basic knowledge that you can make this work.

The reality is that if you work hard, learn, take action and put into your mind the fact that you're never going to fail, well, there's no stopping you.

If that's not the mentality you have, then you might as well quit now.

Cheers,
Todd

Hello Todd,

Read your profile and thought it was very interesting. First, because you fell in love with South America. I am from Brazil but I also love Colombia! Later because you seem to have genuine advice on how to make this journey with online businesses to work. I am new to all this, therefore I have lots to learn but I am willing to put the time to make it work.

Wishing you all the success,
Sue

Hi Sue, thanks for your feedback on my profile. You're more than halfway there with an attitude like that. It's the exact way you need to enter into this business, work at it like you're going to college, forget about the money and focus on the quality of your content and website and everything else will fall into place.

hey todd a little question on amazon commissions , first is their a forum that I could use to ask the question or can you answer and tell me where I should go for other questions of that nature....when I get a commission on a amazon product who keeps the client for the upsales . for example at mobe the client remains mine for ever...and I believe after the first sale on amazon they own the client, so all upsales amazon does ...I will not see a dime of

thanks

Mobe is considered by most folks to be a shaddy product at best. This is nothing like an MLM.

This is affiliate marketing, not network marketing. There are many ways to promote affiliate products for affiliate commissions.

One of the best ways is to build a niche website where than you recommend products that are beneficial to your niche audience.

Some affiliate products are set up as reoccurring commissions like you were referring to with mobe.

Wealthy affiliate referral program is set up this way as well. But when you're selling products that are only purchased one time, you only get a one time commission on them.

If you were selling dating membership websites for match dot com, this would also be a reoccurring monthly affiliate commission.

I hope that clears things up for you.

Tmaltz,

What an encouraging testimony. You do have a knack for writing and a talent to promote what you believe in..

I keep reminding myself that 'the suns coming up in the morning, and all the clouds will be gone'. It is so hard for me but I know I can do this. Just have such a fear and challenge with this computer world.

Thank you very much for the cheer-up.

Hi Katherine,

Take it one day at a time. This was a tough process for me to go through as well.

If you are successful and don't give up, you will go through several of these types of situations.

In my mind, it's no different than going to college to earn a professional degree. It takes time, hard work, education and support.

You can do this, just take it one day at a time and do not give up. Too many people give up too soon and that just doesn't work for any type of business, online or off-line.

Let me know if you ever have any questions or need a hand, you can do this.

Best,
Todd

Hey Todd, thank you for your Wealthy Affiliate review that convinced me to join this program. I think it's funny you mentioned traveling to Colombia because my friend and I were talking about going there this year to meet the beautiful women over there.
I will keep you in mind if I do have any questions.

Dear Todd:

I've truly enjoyed this so far. Just finished the 10 lessons of the intro course and have a few questions before I click the button to go premium:

1. Do you know of folks I could chat with who've "made it?" Meaning used these tools and training to generate a full time income of $5,000+ a month? I'm willing to work and know these things take time, but haven't seen too may testimonials of people doing what I'd like to ultimately like to do with this per se.

2. If you check out the page I created, esp., the "About Me" on the website christianmarriagementor (the free version here), I'm wondering if we have associates in the group who do marriage or relationship stuff as their niche?

Thanks,
PJ

Hi PJ,

I'd throw question 2 to the community. I don't know anyone personally who is that niche. As for question one, here's a great blog that should help you out. I saw this about a month ago. Hope this helps,

Hi Todd,

I posted a comment on your website just now and joined WA immediately after finding your website. I am trying to see if I can speak with you as I have a huge business idea and am at the same time debating going to occupational therapy school. I am 26, have a 3.9 gpa, and am in the middle of applying to OT school for a third time here in Florida. I have skype, e-mail, and phone. I would prefer to have a conversation. Please let me know how I can support you and speak with you personally. I am also going to Colombia soon so there is really a lot I'd like to talk to you about. Please let me know how I can make this possible.

Todd! It's so nice to see a fellow OT here, not many of us around, and also having the same interests of making money online!

Of course, you're much more advanced than me (I'm new to this) - can I ask, how long did it roughly take before you succeeded online (whatever that means to you)?

Great question and I get this a lot. I wrote a post about this on my site that should give you a good understanding of what you're getting into.

Great reply too! I've read and re-read...and as I've a health niche, it falls generally into the "Larger Niche" that takes 2-5 months or more (mine is very niche, just 1 product), but I'm estimating around 6 months minimum...

I'm encouraged by your writing and words, thank you Todd - wish you all the best! Thank you =D
