So, this may seem unimportant to some people, but I see that the introduction to Wealthy Affiliate is Tim McKinlay in the video, but then when I scrolled down further to get started, there are 2 different owners of Wealthy Affiliate. Where does Tim fit into the scheme of things. is he still part of the business?

So sorry! I know I'm too detail-oriented sometimes!

Tim is a super affiliate member of the Wealthy Affiliate platform.

If you join Tim, he would be your WA assigned coach. You still get all the same facilities as any other member here on the platform - you could also ask the community with any issues you may have, like you are doing right now.

The co-founders of the Wealthy Affiliate platform are Kyle and Carson.

Hope this helps.

Hi Debbie. Not at all, that is a good question and the answer is I'm a member of Wealthy Affiliate just like anyone else. I'm also the person who referred you to the platform.

So, as Abie pointed out, I will be your Premium Coach if you decide to upgrade to Premium, which means you can reach out to me personally for help building your business and you get some bonuses I've created especially for my referrals.

I've created a video that goes into more detail on who I am, how to navigate the Wealthy Affiliate platform, and how to claim your bonuses: What's in it for me? I am an affiliate of WA. So I earn a small commission recommending this platform to others as an affiliate. This isn't the only way I earn commissions, but it's one of the ways. And the reason I recommend Wealthy Affiliate is that it works; this is the platform that showed me how to earn my first commission online with Amazon.

Anyway, I hope this answers your question. And by all means, reach out if there's anything else you're unsure of. More than happy to help you out.

Hi,

English isn't my first language and writing a catchy 1000+ word article for the purpose of marketing isn't my strong point. Is it possible to be successful in this arena?

Thanks.

Hi

Yes you can write in your language and connect worldwide to your people, so I'd say absolutely yes.

You can also use Grammarly software, that would help you with writing and learning, an avenue for you to explore should you be wishing to write in English.

Your question is very clear, so I'd say your English is great.

Writing in English is not the only option; you can write in your own language and convert it to English. You can also do videos on YouTube or do Podcasts and place the link on your website.

Absolutely, you can write in your native language but since the training is in English, you still need to have an intermediate or advanced level of English listening and reading

After time it can be. Please be aware that it takes time, hard work, and patience.

It will take time before you see your first commissions. You need to follow WA training, take consistent action such as writing 2 or 3 1,000+ word posts weekly. Other factors that speed up your results are goal setting, the right mindset, discipline, etc.
WA is not a get-rich-quick scheme, so don’t expect to make money overnight.

Hi Tim, love your explanation. let's keep going. splendid. just through my passions niches, I've zero commission. so, maybe I should go to promote WA.
Thank you

Hey, you can be just as, if not more, successful with a niche site as you can promoting WA, so you definitely don't have to promote WA. What I recommend is sticking with a niche you're interested in, whatever that may be, because that will set you up for success.

Reason being, the more interested in the topic you are, the more effort you'll put in to your site, and the more traffic and sales you're likely to get as a result. You're also far more likely to go the distance when you're enjoying what you're doing.

Anyways thanks for dropping by and reach out if you need anything going forward. :)
