Hi, its Philip here from Malaysia. Joined more than 2 weeks ago but was landed with a big project right after I joined, so had to focus on that project first and and put WA on hold. Only now free enough to start to learn how to get around the WA site and to start the Training lesson. A bit overwhelmed at present but given time, I am sure I will be able to master them. Just like to say hello for now and I am sure I will have tons of questions to ask later on. Cheers and looking forward to learn from you guys.

Best Regards,

AbieAJ Premium Plus

That's awesome, we are glad you are here with us.

Kindly let us know when needing help or having further questions.

Welcome to WA. Delighted to meet you.

The way to learn the online process is to complete the Online Entrepreneur Training which is a self-managed program. You can do it at your pace. When you have questions, you can ask them in the comments section after each lesson.

We wish you much success.

I set some high goals because I am thinking of a future where I can work for myself and my wife is able to focus on her interests. I am concerned about my ability to write posts that appeal to others. I have never been much of a writer and have always tried to keep my thoughts and opinions to myself. When I do say or write down what I am thinking, I hear or see critical comments and wish I had kept my thoughts to myself. Even now, as I write this comment, I am struggling to articulate what I want to say and not delete what I have written. Does anyone else ever feel like this?
DianeScorpio Premium
Hi - there is no problem with setting high goals as long as they are within a realistic time frame. For example, most people don't see any income at all for at least 3 months, but it is more likely to take 6 months. After that, you will see an increase in visitors to your website.

Don't worry about the writing. Here, you are taught to write in a conversational style, as though you were talking to a friend. It's not like writing an essay, it doesn't have to be perfect.
AbieAJ Premium Plus

Think of it pretty much like you are explaining something to your best friend, how would you then manage it?

I start off with free writing anything that comes to mind, read up. proofread, have someone else read it.

And then bit by bit getting focused and more focused writing.

You may consult with https://answersocrates.com/ for further research into finding a subcategory starting out. You can search what real people are asking as in Questions, Prepositions, Comparisons, in the past, letters and query. It is also great if someone wants to write a thorough research based article.

With goals you can set however best suits you, however I keep it realistic.
Apples64 Premium
It really doesnt matter how high you set your goals, what is important is making sure you set achievable time frames to hit them.

I was exactly the same as you about 5 weeks ago, thinking how am I going to write about things when I have never been a good writer, buts its funny if you pick a topic/niches you love the words easily build into sentences, the sentences into paragraphs and before you know it you have an article ready to publish.

Just articulate it as if you were talking to friends.

All the best with your goals and I am here if you ever get stuck.

jghwebbrand Premium
We are delighted to meet you.
Fantastic goals here.
As for writing your thoughts in a post: you choose the topic of interest for your website. It can most certainly be something that does not reveal your personal thoughts. For example, let's say you are a camper. So you can have a website all about camping for beginners. So your site would be about what beginners need to know and do related to camping. A lot of the information would be about things you need to go camping. With such a topic there is no need to reveal your inner thoughts. That is just an example. The training teaches you about the different kinds of info you can write and an outline of style and content approach.

We wish you much success.
Manjukesh Premium
You wrote this quite well. You can do well
IsabeloJ3 Premium
I think we are the same because im also a newbie here but we try our best that we can handle this in Gods will.

I watched the video for lesson 4 on building my website. After I was able to build my website, I noticed that the number of domains and number of free websites I have says 10.

In the video, the number says 25 for both. I am just curious if this is something that has changed since Kyle made the video.
JoeRebisz Premium
This was recently updated last year. As a premium member you get a total of 10 websites, combination of .com domains and siterubix subdomains.
Alece Premium
Ok thank you. 10 is still a good amount of websites.

My experience, at my age with computers, is only very basic. I am understanding what I have learned so far, but applying it is something I may not be successful at. Is there someone at any level that would help me when I am ready to actually put my business up/live for results?

Hi Norman,
Welcome to WA.

I can understand your doubt due to lack of experience.

I can assure you the course is pretty straight forward and easy to follow.

However I would be most happy to help you along. May I suggest you do some research before choosing your niche? I did a small blog on market research recently. This will help you to decide on the type of business you wish to build. Since the primary purpose of starting a business is to make money it is important to choose well. You may also read here about niche vs market. When you need help moving on be sure to reach out to me. I will be happy to help.

Hope these help.

All the best.

After trolling around google, I noticed a website with a very similar name and theme to mine. I came up with "fishkeepersguide" and the already established site is "fishkeeperguide"
I love the title "The Fish Keepers Guide" but am concerned with the similarity to an already established website.
What is your advice? Should I push forward and try to beat their website, or delete my site and start over with a new name?

DianeScorpio Premium
Hi - it's not necessarily a question of beating that site, but are you infringing on their copyright? They may consider that you are trying to cash in on their already established name. You could face legal action.
AbieAJ Premium Plus

We should never compare ourselves to others vs be unique and do our thing.

Check if the domain may be copyrighted, trademarked and ' or registered to an established business, then you need steer away, as you do not want to build your business and few years down the line end up with a law suit.

Here's some insight how to go about choosing an appropriate domain name, however please be aware hosting is provided with a premium subscription to the platform.

You can use Namemesh dot com - look in SEO & MIX columns

You can also use leandomainsearch dot com, you input a word and it gives you another

And godaddy valuation tool to find a memorable name.

Nowadays domains are not so affected by SEO vs writing quality rich content with good choice of keywords, latter of which would rank you in the search engines.

I would always go for a dot com domain name vs dot net or dot org as people's perceptions when they start typing they would typically assume it is a dot com. And make sure it is spelled correctly as it cannot be edited once purchased.

Also I would not include dashes, may be one dash permittable in some situations.
It is from my understanding that business names and domain names are not protected by the copyright law, but more so the intellectual property of the site itself (the blog posts themselves).
Again, from my understanding of copyright and trademark laws, I would only face legal action if their name was trademarked. I checked their site, and with the Trademark Electronic Search System, and it doesn't seem that "Fish Keeper Guide" is protected in any way.

Do you agree with me? I think I'm legally safe to use "The Fish Keepers Guide"

jghwebbrand Premium
You may be safe, but since you are just starting your site I would choose another name. Your suggested name is too similar. You can get some additional ideas from namemesh.com
michaelw777 Premium
I am just going to say here; if you get a following it won't really matter. No Offense meant; just saying; if you can get a big following. It won't really matter. I don't know if this helps? Sorry, if did Offend.
