Hi everyone,

I already built a website but since I became premium and I would like to redo it by using a great design. I am just wondering what you recommend , should I get a registered domain or use a free one?

I guess in the beginning while I am building website and blogs I cloud use free and when it looks better I cloud switch to registered?
What are your thoughts?

Wonderful day to you All

Hi, you may like review my notes on below discussion resource for mote info The majority here use GeneratePress theme

GeneratePress is extremely light, fast, well coded, SEO optimised, flexible, adaptable and customisable.

The premium version plugin is even better, and you get templates and more options to customize.

Hi how I start this website
cdubb25 Premium
Depending on what your site is based around, you can click through and add different themes to your website until you find one that works best for you.

My site is a blog, and I went with the "Bam" theme on wordpress. But I downloaded and tried 15 themes before I found the one that I liked.

I would also suggest that while you continue to build out your site, and learn/implement the training, you use a free domain. It might take a little while for your content to get indexed and for you to start seeing traffic coming in. Use the free domain until you get a feel for how to use wordpress and create content. You can always buy the paid domain later when you are ready and the site is up and running how you want it to be.

I hope this helps!

Best regards,

-Chris W.

Thank you so much for the advice :)
Would like to inquire which approach is most effective to begin with!

Is it better to search for a profitable affiliate programs at first, and if they would be interesting to myself - move to their direction?
To choose an interesting and actual niche and only afterwards to start searching relevant affiliate program.
AbieAJ Premium Plus
Hi, I'd figure out my niche first and write original informational posts and if there's a product / solution you can provide to solve a visitor issue , you then can write a review to help your visitor make an informed decision whether to click your link and go purchase what you are proposing.
Thank you! But were there cases when you have chosen a niche, wrote a lot of content, posted it to your website and afterwards, unable to find proper affiliate program?
Jaz333 Premium
You could do a little niche research prior just to get an idea of what types of programs are out there but in the beginning your focus should be on just getting set up and consistently publishing informational content.

Most affiliate programs are going to want to inspect your website to see that it has plenty of relevant content and a steady stream of traffic prior to approving you. So knowing that, you probably do not want to apply or be in contact with them until you have a good 20+ articles published to your website. This is why adding links comes a little later in the training.

Good luck, Shannon

I would have assumed you would have researched your niche well and outlined your plan, however the primary goal is providing added value content first to gain traffic and traction and then instil the programs wanting promote. After all we are writing for humans vs search engines and you want your user experience top notch.

Hi everyone - so I need to choose a niche...

I provide online live tutor led training courses to corporates / businesses in: Microsoft programs like excel, word etc; Soft Skills and Management Training.

It is all live - and not elearning...

Would my niche be live tutor led training?

Any guidance on this would be very helpful

heavensaroma Premium Plus
Hello Terry! You could possibly do a site that explains all of the tools you use in your classes, and try to sell those products via affiliate links. Or, you could do a you tube channel on your training sessions. Or you could do both.
Start with a site and write articles, sell products, and then once you get going with that, you could expand to you tube tutorials.
You could call it whatever you like, but just make sure you are not copying straight from your already taped sessions.
Try to make it as original as possible.

Hope this strikes some ideas!

Hello everyone,
Can anyone help me to understand how beneficial it is to upgrade to premium? I did it yesterday but I am don’t see any change in my status when I log in to the WA website or into my website. I am still being told to upgrade and about the benefits even though I did it more than 36 hours ago.
JamieSL Premium
Main think is Jaaxy and the 5 levels of training. The training is great. By the time you are done with training you have an up and running website. You hardly realize you are building your website as you go. Before you know it your website will be fully functioning. Jaaxy helps you research keywords so your posts are near the top of the searches. But for now you have a Blue Diamond next to your profile image :)

It is worth it. You won't regret it! I just hit my 1 year anniversary. I hope this helps!

Hello guys, is Fashion and Beauty considered two niches? If so, how do I incorporate them to fit into one? I love shopping, and I love makeup. So that is something that I am passionate about. I love to Feel beautiful and tell others how they can do the same for a lower cost. Is this a good Niche? And is this a profitable area? Help....
EHerrera13 Premium
If you love shopping and makeup they should both be 2 separate niches. But even so they need to be even more specific. Something more particular about makeup and something more particular about shopping. The more specific your niche can be the better. Always check the jaaxy here in the research tab to figure out how often your words are searched and figure out the best words your niche can thrive on.
TheTrentWay Premium
Can you give me an example of a word more specific surrounding fashion so I can better understand what you are saying?
Hi thank you for that insight, it helps to see in practical terms what a niche can look like
BarbaraN Premium
Good morning and welcome to WA. In fashion, select a size range like: Fashion for the working girl, or Fashions for the over 50, or Fashion on a budget, Let your mind wander. Use Jaxxy to help Type in possible subjects and see what you come up with. Hope this helps.
TheTrentWay Premium
Yes this helps a lot, Thank you
Andrew-74 Premium
Hey there! I think you can certainly combine both Fashion and Beauty into one nice. In fact I think you found your niche when you said you want to tell others how to do the same for less. Examples - Make-up and Beauty products on a budget, Fashion without breaking the bank. Once you have a basic theme and niche that you are targeting you can cover anything you like within your posts.
