what can I do with the free membership?

VitaliyG Premium
Among other things:

1) Make up to 2 websites.
2) Have constant access to the certification and bootcamp courses.
3) Support from WA and it's community.
4) You'll start and establish a good site ready to be ranked by Google.

And much more.

Hey, are there advertisements on the free websites? I'm a premium member but I wanted to make sure their wasn't any advertisements that we or others put on a new members free website. Does anyone know for sure?
Reply

The only advertisements on your websites is what YOU put on it. This isnt like a lot of other website builders that stick ads on your website. Hope this helps.

Where can some learn about internet marketing
Reply
SuzetteH Premium
Here at Wealthy Affiliate. Click on the Green Button that says Certification. That is where it all begins. Follow the lessons and do each task.
Reply
GrantSudduth Premium
Just decide if you want to promote Wealthy Affiliate or your own niche. If WA, then follow the Affiliate Bootcamp lessons. If you want to do your own, then follow the Certification lessons. Just dive in, go one lesson at a time and complete your tasks before moving on. Your questions will be answered whenever you need help, plus, your questions will be more specific because you'll be learning specific things in each lesson rather than just "internet marketing". That covers lots of things. You have to choose exactly which area of internet marketing you want to do and the only way is to go through the lessons. Hope this helps.

There are a LOT of factors. You see a wide range of people who profit within 3-12 months and some longer. It mainly depends on how well you follow the training and how much content you regularly add.

I have gone through the first coarse at WA but I feel like I don't know how to continue when I don't have access to the rest of the coarses. For example how to use the keywords to build content and how to find the right affiliate program.
Reply
Michelle04 Premium
You can sign up for Jaxxy's 30 free searches. You are looking for keywords within your niche that have less than 300 QSR (competition) and at least 50 for traffic. Use each good keyword to write a blog on your website. Use it within the title, once within the first paragraph, and write freely from there.

As for affiliate programs, you don't want to do that until you have some quality content on your website. Many affiliates take a look at your site and if there is nothing really on it, they won't accept your application at that time.

I'd work on starting to get some blogs on your site for now. You won't need affiliate programs until you start getting some traffic anyways and that takes content. :)

Hope that helps some!

So, what I am hearing you say is. Get a website up. Put content using blogs (is that correct?) . Then when generate traffic, put up the affiliate links? How will I know that the folks who previously came will come back? How much traffic needs to be generated before adding the affiliate links?... (So, this is my second day here and I am on course 1 lesson 4.Havent even made a website yet. If all of my questions will be answered later on down the road and in subsequent courses, just tell me to breathe and take it one step at a time!! I won't be offended) LOL

Jesterdw Premium
BREATHE and take one step at a time! There is no pressure for you to buy anything, so take advantage of the FREE training right now. Even if you decide to upgrade you can still do it month to month if you still aren't sure. S much as you would like to jump all over, do the lessons the way they are presented, it'e done this way for a reason, I totally understand jumping all over looking for every answer under the sun cause often do it myself! FYI: I am on Day 9, I believe I jumped on board YEARLY by Day 3. Before even signing up I spent 6-8 hours trying to find bad reviews & complaints about WA. DIdn't happen. I started the classes & the further along I got and the more I looked around the entire WA site the more I knew the entire system was absolutely brilliant! I just recently lost my job and don't want to go back there, also had to have minor surgery so I have the time to invest.... and that is exactly what I have been doing. I'm on Day 9 & spend anywhere from 10-17 hours a day here! Right now I am in the beginning on Phase 3, but after looking through other classes, comments etc, I feel I need to enhance my post more & make them longer and do more homework on the SEO aspect. No matter what happens, I know that I have already learned a wealth of information and there is still so much more ahead!!!! If you are still not sure & for any reason think this was fabricated in anyway you can email me & I will give you my # & talk to you directly. donna@theoutdoorswife.com GOOD LUCK!

After 7 days, what do i have left to access to?
Reply
Michelle04 Premium
Once your 7 days are up, you still can access your siterubix site and work at it as you wish. You lose access to the remaining Certification Courses, live chat, and the ability to ask questions.

If you can swing the first month for $19, I highly recommend it. You can get through the rest of the training in a month if you work at it and your website will be up and running.

Hi. You do not lose access to your free siterubix account. You will not have access to the rest of the certification courses, the ability to ask questions and use live chat. But, you can work on your website whenever you like.

Hi Michelle04, Greetings. I am one of those who had a problem with my account mechanically, found it necessary to opt out. I am now back again, I am fighting to get my account in order, at the moment I am working on my bloc when I try to publish what I have written am asked to tag, I do not know what I am asked to do.. I check some of the other posting and I do not see under their picture the word TAGGED.. If I have an advert on printed paper how can I post that on my website. If you please, send me a message in answer to my questions . LesterR,
Reply
Michelle04 Premium
Are you talking about when you have a post ready to publish and it asks you if you want to add any tags? Tags are just keywords that you have used in your post and you can put those in one at a time.

I hope I have answered your question. Not sure I understood everything though. :)

Hi. As you have already joined as a free member, you would not be allowed to rejoin as a free member a second time. You would have to come in as a premium member when you are able to.

Hi there Fahmi. You can come back to WA anytime you like, but like Michelle said to get all of the perks of WA after the 7 day period, you'd have to try premium.

My advice is to try and do whatever you can right now and come back whenever you're able to.

BigDubbayew Premium
So basically you have been spamming your link to an untargeted audience?
Reply
BIS Premium
This is real, but you certainly won't find it is because of the action you have taken. None of the training here suggested you should take such action.
Reply
See, I am not one to judge. But maybe you are looking at this the wrong way, just giving random information to people won't make them learn, let alone see this the way you have seen it. This is a learning process and only patiences discipline and perseverences can you hope to become successful.

Hope this relates to you.

Ability to ask questions ends in two days: does this apply to me alone or everybody? I've gone through the tutorials/lessons and have virtually done all my task. When do I start posting contents apart from About Me, Privacy Policy and the Home Page?
Reply
Carson Premium
This applies to you only because you are at the end of your Special Offer. Support, Coaching, and the ability to get your questions answered is a Premium feature but we extend this to Starter members at the beginning of their membership so they can get started. There is endless support and coaching available if you go Premium, but you may also continue with your Starter membership without the ability to ask questions.

In lesson 9 of the Getting Started course you will be publishing your About Me, Privacy, and Homepage.

Getting Started course is here:

Hi Emma
Just click on your photograph and it will take you to your profile - and near the top of the screen just under the search box you will see four tabs with blue writing. Blog is the second one from the left after your name. If you click on that - it will take you to your blog space (which will be empty at the moment) and you can create a new blog.

Hope this is clear

Are you following every step of the 'Getting Started - Level 1 course'.

Have you actually created your website?

No one makes your pages for you. This is something you can do by following the instructions.

There are lots of people who will gladly help but - you need to be a little more specific and explain exactly where you are. Best place to ask questions will be in the Getting Started Classroom.

Thank you Beverley for an excellent training to help newbies get the most of their first seven days. I wish I had this guidance when I started. I too, like so many others, ran around looking at everything at once , this is a great guideline.

It also helped me "alter" my thinking to accept the new changes and more prepared of how to alter my "explanation of starter membership" for my website.


This will be a new constant in links I give to newbies who are feeling overwhelmed! It's just brilliant!

When you are overwhelmed, it is like swimming in place and not going anywhere, your head is swimming and your brain is like excited atoms bopping around, you feel so lucky something clicked, and then take a breath. Have used up my last 1/2 hour, but this was worth it.

Your welcome, Beverley. Am so much still a newbie and reading through encouraged me to stay on my plan moving steadily forward. When you have a moment, would you be able to find out who signed me up? Shortly after sign up I was hospitalized. I remember in the tutorial that we could write on our sponsors' blog page when we had questions, one of several alternatives to live chat. Simply, would just like to express my thanks, or I wouldn't be here! : )

I've had a look from your profile and it looks like you came through on a WA link with Kyle and Carson. Usually you can see a specific message on your profile from the person who's link you used - but I can't see an obvious one. Don't worry about it. Not everyone makes it clear - though they should do so.

Most of us know most of these motivational ideas but few of us "commit" to them. This very I believe blog or in house article is extremely useful for reference. I will personally read this often to remind myself commitment overseas interest. Though, both are needed ,prioritizing commitment over interest is key. Interest is easy, commitment is tough.
