Where is the first place we come to do our research?

Online.

The Internet is the gateway to information and being an affiliate marketer, of course this is where you are going to be delivering your reviews to a captive audience. If you understand how to effectively create a review, you can drive a lot of traffic to your business, and effectively convert a lot of "prospective" buyers into actual buyers.

There are some KEY elements to any trustworthy, authoritative websites online. One of these key elements is reviewing products and services within their respective industry.

That is what this lesson is going to teach you all about, how to create through and very insightful reviews on your website. Reviews will naturally become a core component of your website moving forward and you will likely be making many product/service recommendations over time, and occasionally, helping people avoid products or services that may not help them out.

Your first focus is going to be the integration of Wealthy Affiliate into your site, but there are many affiliate programs out there that you will be able to leverage through time to create multiple streams of income. Reviewing and promoting many different products is going to happen with time.

Before I get into things, I would love for you to watch the following video on how to create and architect a proper review (I use Wealthy Affiliate in my example).

 

DISCUSS VIDEO: Creating Thoughtful, Insightful Reviews

The 4 "CIAO" Principles to a Great Review

When people go to purchase anything online or offline, typically they will review it. Unless it is a complete impulse buy (which does happen to the best of us), we will spend our time researching a product before we purchase it. We want to be informed and feel as though we are making the best purchasing decision possible.

There are four core principles that I follow when creating my reviews, I call these the "CIAO Principles".

1. Captivating.

All of your reviews, and content for that matter, need to capture the interest of your audience. If you can't capture the interest, people will get through the first paragraph of your content and leave. The hard work is getting someone to your site and if you are captivating with your content, they will stay to read what you have to say.

To be "captivating" you should write as though you are writing to a friend, explaining a product or service to them. Explaining the benefits of it, how their life will be better having it than not having it.

This captivation also starts with a STRONG title and headings within your content that keep the reader engaged. Tell people what you are going to talk about before you talk about it!

2. Informative.

Plain and simple, if you don't provide people with enough information to make a purchasing decision (either to buy or not to buy a product/service), then they are going to vacate your site and resume their research elsewhere. That equates to LOST traffic and revenue.This is the reason you want to offer a very informative review, something that is comprehensive enough that someone can make a decision after reading your review. One that builds enough trust and offers people enough help that they feel comfortable enough with your "words" that they decide.

A recommendation would be a minimum of 1,000 words for every review post you create on your site. Write until you feel you are offering a comprehensive experience for your visitor.

3. Accurate.

A review should be accurate to the best of your knowledge. Make sure that when you create your reviews, that you base it on factual information. Sure it is fine to have an opinion based on facts, but you don't want to be in a situation where you are making stuff up or creating a fabricated story.

The facts can be derived from many places and will accomplished through thorough product research. The internet is your information gateway and you can learn an incredible amount about a product or service through:

  • Researching it on the product website or sales channels
  • Your own product experience (if you have tried it)
  • Forums and online discussion platforms
  • Youtube, Vimeo, and other video platforms
  • Through other bloggers and industry authority websites
  • Communicating directly with others that have tried it

Lots of ways to put together and accurate and precise review, utilize all of the resources available to you.

4. Opinionated.

Your opinion matters, in particular when the very essence of your brand and authority as you build out your website content is going to surround your brand. You can feel confident in offering people your opinionated information within your reviews if you are basing your review on accurate and factual information.

If you feel a product is great because of XYZ, then state it. If you feel it is lacking because of XYZ, then state that. Your content is unique to you and the same way that you would email a friend explaining a product/service that they should try or not try, is the same way you should present your content within your reviews. Be opinionated, it will make your reviews much more interesting to read and will lead to much better results.

Task 1: Choosing a Winning Title for Your Review

Although your review is going to be a critical element of your website and you are going to be able to link to it from many places moving forward, with ALL of your content you create your goal is also going to be to rank in Google, Bing & Yahoo.

And this starts with the KEYWORD phrase that you choose. Reviews are no different and when someone goes to look for information on something online, there are a few key characteristics and behaviours that you should be aware of with their research.

  • They Want "Reviews" of the Information. (Review, Compare, Does it Work)
  • They Are Looking for Various Product Insights (price, success stories, affiliate program, how does it work, income proof, etc)
  • They Tend to Look for The Dirty Laundry. (Scams, Ripoff, Complaints, BBB rating)

Here is a list of potential keywords that you could use within the title of your post.

  • wealthy affiliate review
  • wealthy affiliate reviews
  • review of wealthy affiliate
  • wealthy affiliate review 2017
  • 2017 wealthy affiliate review
  • wealthy affiliate scam
  • does wealthy affiliate work
  • wealthy affiliate success stories
  • wealthy affiliate ripoff
  • wealthy affiliate complaints
  • wealthy affiliate hosting
  • wealthy affiliate comparison
  • wealthy affiliate price
  • wealthy affiliate income proof
  • wealthy affiliate affiliate program
  • how does wealthy affiliate work

Here is the title I have selected for my post.

Ideally, you want to choose a title that you are not going to be changing. Once you decide on the title, and in particular once your review post ranks in Google and other search engines, you don't want to be updating your title too often (as it can tank your rankings in Google).

So choose a title that (a) has your targeting keyword somewhere within it (b) that is captivating, and (c) is something that you are happy with.

Task 2: Create Your Wealthy Affiliate Review

Great! You have your post title set out, this is going to be the premise of your review, but ultimately your goal is going to be to provide people with a BRILLIANTLY captivating, informative, accurate and opinionated review (remember the 4 CIAO principles).

When you construct your review, there are several elements that will remain critical to your review and that I tend to focus on within all my reviews in terms of the structure and design.

1. Product/Service Overview

If you look at every successful review website out there and from my personal experience, it is very important not just to offer someone a thorough and informative review, but also to offer them a much lighter weight and easier to read "overview". This is in essence of an overall product breakdown based on the main elements of the product or service.

See the example within my WA review.

These should be consistent on your website for "similar" products. For example, if I were to review other products that were in the same industry as Wealthy Affiliate, I would likely want to use the very same criteria as this.

You can choose the criteria you will be review, it is your content but this should give you a few ideas as to some "ranking categories" that you can have within your reviews for Wealthy Affiliate and similar industry related products. Be unique and original.

2. Captivating Internal Headlines

Within your content, you are going to have internal headlines using H3 tags (the size of the font). These serve many practical uses. The first being that they break up your content and make it more readable. Nobody likes to read one big massive block of text, it is cumbersome and strains the readers eyes.

Secondly, it helps you foreshadow the next topic of discussion. In the case of the screenshot below, I am foreshadowing my section on Wealthy Affiliate Support by indicating that it is a community of caring experts. This is MUCH more interesting than having a boring title like "Wealthy Affiliate Support".

So make sure you make full use of headlines within your content, it will lead to many more people reading your content and ultimately more $$.

3. Call-to-Action Links

The last main focus here is going to be call to action links that take your website visitors to Wealthy Affiliate, through your affiliate link.

Remember, as your will want to get your affiliate link through the "Program Details" tab, at the top of the page (as shown below).

That is your link you will be using on your website in which will track your referrals and ultimately the revenue you generate from your site.

To add your link, simply highlight the text you want to link and then click the link button (chain link icon) within the top header. Then choose "Insert Link".

A modal will pop-up, and then within the "URL" field, you are going to add your affiliate link.

The key to a successful call-to-action link is to create one that is entices someone to click it and it is contextually relevant to the content surrounding it. Here is an example of a call-to-action link that I created within the "training" section on my review.

These are the three main focuses of the review, outside of course creating quality, thorough content, you want to put some emphasis on having a "shortened" overview, creating internal headlines, and call-to-action links.

Wealthy Affiliate Reviews. Uncut.

In terms of a site like Wealthy Affiliate, you have hands on experience with it. If you have a website in an industry that is related to the services offered here at Wealthy Affiliate, you could write a thorough, insightful, accurate, and opinonated review.

You have hands on experience, you have likely personally been connected with many members here at WA (myself and Carson include), and you have gotten a good grasp of the helpful, forward thinking and "members first" nature of WA.

We haven't changed our prices in 12 years, we have a team of 25 people working behind the scenes to move the technology, training and offering far beyond anything else offered within this space. That is our focus, and something we invest 60-70 hours per week working towards.

What was $359 and people loved as a “keyword list” site back in 2005, is now something that is obviously "light years" more sophisticated, elaborate and useful in 2017, something that is still $359 per year.

Comparable hosting alone, is $250 per month and as we progress through 2017, there won't be a Managed hosting company in the industry that can compete with the hosting that we offer here at WA.

Look around the platform when constructing your review and make it personal to you and your experience. A few things you could focus on.

  • Support (Live Chat, SiteSupport, Q & A)
  • Personal Mentoring
  • Community
  • Training Courses, Step by Step
  • Weekly Live Classes (and 100's of hours of replays)
  • Ambassadorship Program
  • Online Entrepreneur Certification
  • Affiliate Bootcamp
  • The Affiliate Program
  • Networking
  • Building Websites
  • Website Performance Tools (SiteRubix)
  • Website Engagement Platform (SiteComments)
  • The Hosting Platform
  • SiteContent Writing Platform
  • Keyword Research Tool
  • etc.

That is just to name a few of the platforms here at WA that you could integrate into your review. Of course you don't need to write a small novel and included everything, but remember, you want to be Informative and thorough. It will lead to much better conversions and a better experience for your visitors (and ultimately better rankings).

Task 3: Publish Your Review as a POST to Your Website

The last task is very straightforward. You are going to simply be publishing your content to your website.

Make sure you publish your content as a "Post". The reason for this is that you are going to want to allow for comments within your review, which is going to be a critical component of your review, building trust and conversions moving forward.

Hi all - appreciate your comment good or bad-
My desired nitch would be to help those that are down and out financially and in the above 40yo bracket. This tends to be the age that those on standard wages struggle with education fees for near-adult kids, mortgage, and general living. If you add a job loss into the mix it is a disaster.
I do plan to make a site with lots of free content and resource links and have WA in there somewhere.
Should anyone have advice, comments or thoughts as to how to source content and break the nitch down I would very much appreciate it. Thank you

Hi Kyle, on Twitter I have two author accounts, one under my real name and one under a pen name, with both accounts combined I have around 8000 followers (90% of them authors - I am an author).

So, I am thinking of creating a niche for struggling authors. There are thousands, perhaps millions out there who are not getting noticed and are not making money with their books.

The other thing I thought of was teachers. A teacher has the most important job, basically, and is underpaid. A niche for something extra for teachers. What do you think? I would love to get some feedback on both ideas.

My nr. 1 is the author idea. Any thoughts?

You do not have to promote WA if you don't want to.
If you have experience and or knowledge of a particular Niche then by all means go down that road.
The Bootcamp tells you how to be an affiliate whether you promote WA or not.
The lessons are worth taking for that reason alone.
You get stuck, you get in touch.

Hi,
In my Training Video on how to activate plugins, there are two types of plugins that are shown, the first is the All in one SEO pack and the other EWWW optimizer...But in my actual dashboard plugins there are three types of plugins. the first is the All in one SEO pack, the second is the classic editor and the third is the Kraken image optimizer. i believe its like this cause i'm a premium member!?. OK so my question is, do i need to install the EWWW image optimizer since it help increase speed by reducing image file sizes?

No, you do not need the EWWW Optimizer.

At the bottom of Website Details for hotwombat.com is a button ‘Delete This Website’. I have made some mistakes in the setting up of hotwombat.com and would like to delete everything. I have now gone back to square one and started again with hotwombat.siterubix.com with the intention of transferring it over to hotwombat.com when I am satisfied with my handy work.
My question: If I click on ‘Delete This Website’ as referred to above, will my domain name ‘hotwombat.com’ remain in Site Manager.

It would not show so work on your new site and perhaps there is content on your old one you would like to keep but if not then don't delete it right away.

When you want to launch your new site as your own domain again then delete the old one.

At 86 years young, I know a little about the retirement life. I want to direct my attention to retirees. I have two registered domain names: hotwombat.com and workfromhomeynot.com. The hotwombat name is something that has been running around in my head for years. I have used the name ‘HotWombat’ for a number of free web sites to post crossword puzzles I have constructed. They were all slanted towards learners of English. I did those years ago, and unfortunately, I have lost usernames and passwords and so, no longer have access to those web sites. I have no idea what the number of visitors were to those sites, anyway I have moved on. I have digressed, sorry. I want to build a brand for the retiree niche and think if I worked consistently with the hotwombat domain, I could brand it as ‘retiree specialist’. The other domain, workfromhomeynot, could be used for a more scattergun approach to keywords for Wealthy Affiliate.

I would love to get some feedback on my idea re how to use the two foregoing domain names.

Take care,

HotWombat aka Jim.

Glad to see I am not the only one struggling with a brand. I have my niche figured out in quite a few areas that were suggested in the tutorial information. However, the brand is a tough one because you have to see yourself in that brand and how you want others to see you. I have gotten some ideas and am now going to have to do some more asking questions so as to help me get that created.

It seems that choosing a niche isn't that easy for me.

Hi. My dad is prediabetic and was recently advised by his doctor to start the 8 Week Blood Sugar Diet by Dr Michael Moseley. The gist of it that it is possible to completely reverse type 2 diabetes by losing weight and in particular the weight that sits around your pancreas and liver as this is what inhibits the production of insulin. Dr Michael Moseley has written a book and recipe book called the 8 Week Blood Sugar Diet that explains it all in more detail and he talks about loads of people who have used the diet to completely reverse their diabetes and come off their medication. I think this is really exciting for type 2 diabetics and definitely worth writing about. Hope that helps xx

Hi,
Choosing a niche can be complex. But this is what I have being doing. I wrote down the areas I like or have an interest in. If I don't have any knowledge I do some research and then ask my girl friend what she thinks she has been help. I've also looked into to areas that I myself need help with personally I figure that will give me the edge to do the research, help myself and others at the same time, this part however ties into my line of work over the past 20 years.

What kind of work or activates have you been involved in?
Do you think there are people out there that would benefit from that information?
What do you have a passion for that has an audience or there isn't enough information out there and you can share your knowledge?

I hope this help in someway.

This can certainly be the case. Not always though, but you shouldn't be adding affiliate links right away to your website either.

You want a framework of content on your website first (15-20 post) before you start apply to affiliate programs. Many affiliate programs will review your website before approval so that is why.

Yes, you want one brand but the audience can be pretty widespread within that brand. There are many ways in which you can diversify as you build out your website.

That could be your niche, but there of course could be 10,000's of things that you could discuss on your website as you build it out. :)

Being 86 years young I understand a lot about retirement. I was fortunate when I closed my last bricks and mortar business in 2000. My savings, together with direction from a financial advisor, has given me a reasonable standard of living. Not the best, but okay.

I look around at other retirees and realise how much better off I am than many others.

Since coming across Wealthy Affiliate, I regret not having discovered it 10 years ago. If I had, my life style would be a peg or two above what it is now.

My goal, (or at least one of them) is to intoduce Wealthy Affiliate to as many as I can as a way to build a passive income, regardless of their age, that will carry on into their retirement years.

Take care,

Hi HotWombat. I'm right behind you at 85 . But I only have a Gov. pension + a really small union pension to supliment that. With the cost of living steadily climbing and the pension staying put at the same level I find it very hard to keep up. But if I can finally get going with WA I think I'll probably make out ok .

I already activate EWWW Image Optimizer and then showing this.
EWWW Image Optimizer requires exec() to perform local compression. Your system administrator has disabled the exec() function, ask them to enable it.
An API key or ExactDN subscription will allow you to offload the compression to our dedicated servers instead.

But in the video just got two plugins, do I have to delete Classic Editor and Kraken Image Optimizer?Also, advice to add other plugins, should I have to add others or only activate Ewww image optimizer and all in one seo?

Thank you guys:D
Reply
KayleeCheng Premium
Here comes the answer. :D

We are excited to let you know that the EWWW image optimizer plugin has been replaced by a much better and enterprise-level image optimizer called Kraken.io. Kraken is an outstanding paid image optimizing service that we have included in the new Server Class at Wealthy Affiliate free of charge!

We have installed the Kraken plugin and activated it on your website. Ewww image optimizer has been disabled and one of the reasons is because it requires server settings that can leave the serverless secure. As part of our continued efforts to provide the most secure servers, EWWW is no longer able to run on this new server Class with heightened security.

You will find Kraken and image optimization settings under your installed Plugins area.

I think that you will really love Kraken as an image optimization platform that is now available with your Premium membership here at WA :)

Hi Kattdell,

First to refresh your page you can either press F5 or if using Chrome next door to the Home Icon to the left of the URL there is a small arrow type icon you click there and that will also refresh the page.

As for the content being displayed rather than just the name of the page it would really be down to the configuration of the menu being set up. If you like send me your website address and I will happily look more for you.

Hi Kyle, please for some time now, something has been happening to my website that I don't understand.

I started out with Wealthy Affiliate in November 2018. Paid my first $19 but after the first month, I couldn't afford the second subscription. So, my account was blocked and my first website deleted.

When I resubscribed on 15 Match 2019, I created a new website with the same domain name and reposted all the old contents. While I was posting the contents, I got a pop-up message saying that ''the content I am trying to post is detected as PLAGIARIZED''.

So, I contacted ERIC CANTOU and he told me that, since I am the original author of the contents, there is no problem, that google will index them with time.

So, I went ahead and posted all of them and added new contents as well.

It took over three months for some of the contents to start getting indexed and when it finally did, the old once were not getting indexed yet, and are still are not indexed. The new once are getting indexed.

Meanwhile, when I first started last year November, it took just weeks for 9 out of 12 contents to get indexed, but this time around it took over three months. What happened?

And as I write to you, I have 42 articles posted but not up to 30 is indexed.

I want to find out if there is anything wrong. Is there something I am not doing right that can be a problem to my rankings?

I have tried asking the community but couldn't get any reasonable response. Please talk to me. This is the fourth month running out and yet no record of ranking or what is happening. I need to know.

Waiting to hear from you.
Yenge Eric.

Hi

Can I canvas opinions please on my proposed direction for my website to promote Wealthy Affiliate? I would like to help people who want to create a better work-life balance and to find financial freedom. In particular, I would like to help mums who are struggling to find well paid part time jobs to fit around looking after their children, especially those who had a professional or well paid full time job before having kids. I have many friends in the UK in this position.

thank you
Emma

Hi angela!

What are some of the things you do as a stay at home mom?
maybe make a list of those things first and find ways you can help others with that thing you chose.

the good thing about wealthy affiliate is it can be promoted whichever angle you decide to take.

ex: help other stay at home moms ( like myself ) set up blogs and suggest wealthy affiliate to help them get started and you not only help but you also make money doing so.

win win for everyone......

Im new myself btw. so I understand your frustration, just try and be patience with yourself.

Maybe just an idea

since you work 50 hours at your current position and you have been doing this for a while, examine skills you use there.

maybe there is something in your daily work that you can help others with, then find a way( product or service) related to that you can monetize from.

We are similar in our desires.

I worked 40 + hours in customer service... I hated it but I did learn how to help frustrated people and has become better at solving problems.

My niche is making money on-line and I plan to make to make a income from W/A.

I am just starting like you so I dont have a success story beside the success I felt from starting.

But I can say I have a better direction from going through the training.

Wish you well Love!

I still have 2 questions.

I have tried my best but I did not succeed to give to my internal headlines the size I would like.
Is it necessary to put an email address in my WA review to allow users to contact me? If yes, shall I link Gmail address? Or what to do?

So the article mentioned stay-at-home moms as one of the targets. I'm a stay at home mom of 4, 5 and under, and I'm always being asked how I do it explicitly since my husband only makes $2,000 a month and we don't feel poor.
So I'm wondering if I should start a blog on how I do it all, call it Poor Mom Hacks or something like that, and promote WA on there.

Hi Guys!hi guys choosing the perfect keywords for my website,using this three criteria guide;must make sense,over 30 searches and under 100 QSR,so the idea is to use the keywords ideas that jaaxy provides me with for my website...for the success of my business?just want to see if am still following.

way2insane Premium
Possibly?
Not quite sure what you are asking.
Are you asking bout using this process to name your website?
Absolutely do that... It will help your niche website to rank quite a bit faster/better than simply picking a whimsical or a name that is only somewhat related to your niche market.

However, from a branding perspective, having a unique name (think of apple computers or Xerox) will allow you to develop ownership. Though going the branding route will take longer to gain traction within that niche. But even then, there is no guarantee that your brand will become "THE" brand associated within that niche.
But that isn't necessarily a bad thing either. Just think of all the various brand that come to mind when you think of "Android Phone".
Hope the above answers your question... I'll be around if it doesn't.

I built a website for online store. It easy when you drop and drag. But some website use html. I found it very difficult design using html if don't have much coding knowledge. I am interested in building website better and perhaps helping somebody to built theirs. When you said share affiliate link with people it mean we post it on our social media or can we post it on forum. About the banner can i post the link on any of my website or has to be specific website for that. Trying to think what would be my niche for website "helping people to build their online store" and my audience will be online marketing i think. Anyone have better suggestion. I appreciate it.

I’m a bit confused lol...I understand that we are trying to get referrals. I’ve read some that are focusing more on the affiliates, but I guess my question is do you have multiple websites? Like one that you are making profit or commissions off of products and another that you are targeting people to get them to sign up? Or both? I’m so confused. And can you do multiple sites targeting different interests? Say I wanna focus on baby items as well as workout supplements and such. Obviously those two don’t go together so would you do two different websites for that? And what about the referral part? I’m sorry I know that’s a lot but I am Confused but ready to get started and not sure which direction I’m going.

Hi Jennifer
You've only been here a few days so plenty of time to get up and running.
Don't get overwhelmed by it all.

The training really is step by step and you get started on the first course - Online Certification - and fully understand one step before moving on to the next.
You get stuck you ask questions and keep asking until all is clear.
Of course the best place for a quick answer is in Live Chat.
just jump in there and there will always be someone who has the right answer.

You can always send a private message to people such as myself who have been around the block and also been members for a few years.

I would advise you to start with one Niche and promote products within that Niche.

Once you have that website actually making you some money then you can perhaps building another site in another Niche.

I would also suggest you start with something you have experience and/or knowledge off and that way you will be able to write articles with some authority and that will come across in your articles.

people do like to see that the articles they are reading have been written by someone who actually knows what they are talking about.

This builds up trust and trust is all-important.

If you have a Niche with that all-important experience and/or knowledge of then start with that and you do not have to promote WA to get referrals if you don't want to.

The Bootcamp is aimed at getting referrals for WA but it is also good training on how to become and affiliate and shows you what to do.

Onwards and Upwards and have a great Thursday.
Robert

The challenge here is that everyone looking for a website for making extra money, has been burned a few times on online "money making scams " that don't deliver. The challenge is to appeal to them that I am going to be trustworthy and this will be the last place they will ever have to look for online help, training and not clean you out with false promises. How do I name that website? Lol

I feel like I am going to have to read 9 again. So when creating a review for WA on my site should I just put in under my Review menu? I was told if our site isn't a site that deals with something related to WA I shouldn't promote it on it so I haven't done anything with WA yet because I wasn't sure what to do? This is telling me to put a review for WA on my site.

Is your site about Wealthy Affiliate.

If it isn't then there is no need to publish a review about wealthy affiliate.

The Bootcamp shows you how to become an Affiliate with any Niche and to promote the products within that Niche.

Taking the Bootcamp does not mean you have to promote WA.

No it is not about Wealthy Affiliate. I am confused then because on 9 it says to write and review on WA and post it to our websites. I dont have a problem promoting WA and would love to but my site isnt about WA or affiliate programs

I told you already.
The Bootcamp lessons are about how to be an affiliate and it is aimed at promoting WA but you can take the lessons as showing you how to be an affiliate for any Niche and not just the Work From Home one.


Once again I say -

You Do Not Have To Promote Wealthy Affiliate.

Therefore you do NOT have to write a review about WA.

Hi - if you’re asking which of the 1,000+ Website themes to choose from I don’t think it matters much. You could stick with the example Kyle uses “Hero” or any of the others. I put
‘Blog” in the search field and selected one of those. The sheer number of themes can be overwhelming for sure but it also allows your site to be a bit more unique.

Right now I provide a great service to those who want to have better ratings and rankings on Google My Business and Search Engines, Telephone Directories, Business Directories, Free-For-All Links, Web Crawlers, Online Shopping Malls, Newspapers, etc. I think I should focus on that. What do you think?
Reply
Kyle Premium
I am assuming most of your traffic is driven to your website through paid traffic, versus SEO. To get ranked, you will want to have adequate content and useful content at that within your niche.

There are PLENTY of things that you can discuss and help your smartwatch audience out with.

When I go to do research on a given niche to come up with concepts for keywords (and ultimately content), I ask a few questions of my niche.

**What are some products/services that people are purchasing in your niche?
**What are some questions they are asking?
**What are some problems they are having?
**What are some "how to's" that are useful?
**What are some trending topics in your niche?

Do some research, in could be as simple as a Google search to uncover a lot of these items. I personally start off my keyword research using this technique: This will open your doors to essentially unlimited ideas and concepts, from there you can plug in these keywords into the keyword/research platform that is available to you here at WA. Hope this helps you out here Paul!

Hi guys. I am having some issues with my site, they are:

1. when I login to my site I see the word 'Edit" under both my about me post and my privacy policy page. Does this mean someone visiting my site can make changes to those documents?

2. I published a review of wealthy affiliate a little over a week ago and to date it does not appear on my site. I thought that immediately after you publish it would appear on the site.

3. I am on the first task in the 2nd phase of the Bootcamp. I have written another review as my second post and need to add some images, where can I find appropriate images?

4. My second post is a Jaaxy Review, what affiliate link should I put for persons to click on?

5. I purchased a domain name, however, I do not see my name appearing at the top of the page, instead it says 'Howdy Admin'. Why so?

I would be grateful for some help please.
Reply
winnieyoong Premium
1. You most likely see the word edit because you're logged into the website as an admin. Try opening your page using another browser or use chrome in incognito mode. The 'edit' link shouldn't show anymore.

2. Once published, it should appear on your site immediately. Do you mean that it didn't show up on your navigation menu? You can access your page anytime using the URL on top of your WordPress editor. (Refer to attachment)

3. You can find images by googling 'royalty free stock images' Some of the websites i like to go to is pexels, pixabay and unsplash.

5. Your domain name should show on the URL bar. Howdy Admin is your admin menu, try clicking on it and you will know what i'm talking about. If you're talking about the words on top left corner, next to the home and wordpress icon, that's a site title, you can edit it at Appearance > Customize > Site identity > Site Title

Ok, so here are the things that come to mind.
Contribution: I have a big space in my heart to offer assistance to the aging population by providing training (Online marketing), products (Developed specifically for the elderly), services (Assistance and help) and valuable information (Topical to them).

My obvious first challenge is that they are not on the internet at the audience level of other demographics. How do I reach them??

Passion's: I'm an actor, part of why this is important to me is to succeed at a level that allows me to train, audition, and perform basically all the time.

I'm a sports lover. I play and have coached successfully.
Basketball is my first love. Also would love to become active in the health and fitness niche.

I feel that mastery of affiliate marketing will give me the widest foundation of knowledge

can we add video and sound clips a lot of my potential referrals have sound bites that they create and advertise some have videos showing products they create like clothes sneakers etc. so they would need to add different features so that potential customers can view or listen to content independently before making a decision to take action Thank you.

Sure, you are going to be able to add videos to your website. I wouldn't add gimmicky stuff though, when a walkthrough or useful "pitch" video makes sense, you can add that.

I would add stuff that doesn't make functional sense though.

I messed up !!!! My domain name is "all-entreprenuers.siterubix.com" but the name of my website is "The Disabled Entrepreneur". The training says the domain name and the website title should be the same. Oh and by the way, my niche is the disabled entrepreneur. Can anyone tell me how to rectify this problem ??

Do you have any content on it?
If so you can save it first.

Then all you have to do is delete it and start again with your new name.

To do this -

You click on Websites on the left of your screen
Then Site Manager.

Find your Site.

Over on the far right you will see the word - Details

Click on that and scroll down the page and you will see the words - Delete This Website

My niche is in Affiliating Marketing. I know in my heart there is success in this niche. However, I do not want to make mistakes but learn from the best and genuine affiliate marketers unlike soooooo...many others out there who promises, gets you pumped up, and presto...it costs an arm and a leg to join. So what is a good direction to begin with and I like the brand name Genuine Affiliate.
What do you think?

Great to have you!

We all make mistakes along the path to success. If we don't, then we don't grow. You will make less by having the training here at WA.

I think that's a cool brand name, but if you like it, you better grab it b4 someone else does.

When I was in decision mode for the domain I was going to purchase, I came back to buy it the next day and it was unavailable.

Peace,

So. My plan is to work kind of backwards. First up, I intend to list all the subjects I believe I have enough knowledge to produce content on. Then i will sit down with some friends or family, give them the subject and ask them what they would like to know about the subject. This would be the search terms they would type into google and therefore my keywords. I will then build the site around these keywords as they will give me an insight into the searchers intent. I can then tailor the content around the questions, thereby giving the searcher exactly what they are looking for. I'm hoping that by working this way, I will build an organically sound website.
Does this make sense ?

This is beyond frustrating...I am a Premium member and am trying to figure out this whole website building. I tried entering a new domain name to start my own WA site. I think that's what I am attempting to do. Everything I try, won't accept a domain name. I have the title picked and the theme but cannot get a domain. What am I doing wrong? Thanks!

Hi, I will try to help you. I saw that you already have a website here on WA, and Google already recognizes it. Do you try to get another one?
It shouldn`t be hard. Go to https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/domains and search for the domain name you want. Sometimes you can`t get domain because it`s already taken, so you will need to try with another title. Post with small caps and altogether like mydomainname and then click enter. You will get a suggestion about which domains are available. Choose your domain and add to the Cart.

Hope it helps. If you still have problems, we will ask for support help.

Good day to all. I'm currently working on my direction and brand. I have two directions I want to go with and wanted to know if they good. The 1st on is becoming self-employed as an Affiliate Marketer. The 2nd is make money while sleeping as an Affiliate Marketer. My brand can be legit trustworthy Affiliate Marketing. Can you guys please tell me what ya think about them.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Well I think you could effectively target both topics within your niche. I would just narrow down your brand to something a bit more specific.

When you choose a domain, you are going to want to choose something that is "brandable" versus something that has keywords within it. The reason this is the case is because as you build out your website, you can target as many keywords as you like within the content (that is how you will rank).

I have created a discussion here outlining the process and what to look for when choosing a domain name: This should help you out here and if you ever want to run any domains by me, simply let me know and I will give you some feedback.

PS. You can host up to 25 of your own domains here within the Premium membership on our state of the art hosting platform. :)

Hi Kyle. I just got some very devastating news this morning that I have to turn my attention to. I have still not wrapped my head around it and probably won't for a couple of days. I want you to know that I have been very intrigued with WA and was planning on going Premium until I got the news I received today. So I'm going to have to put this on hold for the time being and hopefully I'll be able to get back with you sometime in the next couple of months. You and Jay have a good thing going through all the training and all the encouragement, but it would be an added pressure for me right now.

I manage a couple businessses... we own a fitness and mma gym and invest in real estate. The cash flow from one busines helps fund the other business. I'm looking at this program to build more cash flow because the number one thing that keeps people from buying more real estate is investment capital.

I see this as a powerful tool to help people build a second income to be able to have more available capital to invest in real estate or other business. I believe I'd like to target real estate investors (beginner/intermediate level).

Do we build a site around this "direction" and then later build around other directions as we gain momentum in this one?

There's soooo many directions we can go!!

I'd love some honest feedback on my direction and if anyone can see a potential better direction to start...?

Thanks so much in advance!

Dale123 Premium
One thing you never want to do with marketing is fall into the trap of "convincing".

So in your question you suggest you want to offer this opportunity to real estate investors... And that is not a good idea, because it requires convincing... Whereas if you were targeting people looking to start with affiliate marketing, no convincing required because this offers exactly what they want.

A better idea if you are interested in real estate is to simply pick a niche related to real estate, such as "mold damage" for example. Build a site around that, then recommend related products.

As you can likely see it is MUCH easier to convert visitors into sales onto a mold damage site offering mold damage products than it would be on a real estate investing site promoting an affiliate marketing program.

Hope that makes sense :)

promoting WA through articles and blogs is mainly for getting free traffic from organic SEO. If you follow some of our top WA members like JerryHuang, they also do youtube channels on top of writing articles. What kind of strategy are you planning to use?

You can make an entire site on making money online and make categories like working from home and starting an online business, since they all entail making money online. I would do the bootcamp training and promote WA either way in this case.

I'm definitely doing the Bootcamp Training to promote WA. Since I'm unexpectedly unable to work outside the home any more (health reasons), I've had to basically reset everything about my life.

Click the Reset Button .com. Now all those people out there that get displaced, burnt out, become disabled, etc. can come join me and Click the Reset Button of their lives and start something new.

Actually, most people on Wealthy Affiliate seem to have two websites. One for promoting Wealthy Affiliate and one which is their niche topic.

Your niche, apart from online income should be something you have a passion for and would like to share with other people. The most important thing is to write content that will help people who are interested in what you are writing about.

If you were a nurse, possibly your niche could have something to do with nursing. You would have to narrow it down so your niche talks about a specific area of nursing.

Maybe home nursing or nursing from home jobs. I just did a quick search for you and found this>>>>

What jobs can nurses do from home?

Here are some of the types of nursing jobs you may find.

Medical Call Center. Working in a medical call center is perhaps the nursing job from home that takes the least experience. ...
Case Manager. ...
Online Instructor/Course Developer. ...
Legal Nurse Consultant. ...
Health Care Recruiter. ...
Health IT/Nursing Informatics.

This might be a worthwhile niche to consider. You could talk about what it takes to become a nurse and what direction you can take your nursing career if you find yourself having to work from home.

Other nurses who find themselves in the same situation as you would appreciate having a resource that talked about this.

If your niche is something you have a passion for, there should be a lot of quality content you could write.

Within that page you will be see the SitePlus link, click that. (see attached) Then you will want to "toggle" the SiteSSL feature to "ON" status and SSL will be added to your website within 30 seconds. It is that easy!

First, thank you so much Kyle for the great training! However, I just have one comment. Please, if you are publishing screenshots, Try also to attach as much text as you can of that image. If you are visually impaired you only see the name of that image so it is always a good idea to have as much descriptive text as possible. This also includes when creating videos. If you are typing something, please also tell what you are typing so that someone who is totally blind or visually impaired can fully participate. Many thanks!

Yes, good advice. This is done through the "alt tags" which you can manage as you add images to your website.

There is an alt tag manager within the SiteContent platform here at WA as well. :)

Thanks for that tip Kyle, really apreciated. However, the Site content tool is not that screen reader friendly onfurtunatly so most of my work will be done in WordPress. I am also going to focus on this when I explain to others who are visually impaired or blind what is the most accessible way to create good looking posts using Wordpress. One example, when you create your site for the first time and have to select a theme it is not that screen reader friendly. It is much easier to select themes directly in Wordpress.

I'm on the same boat as you and it has been a challenge to find my niche. I will say, try not to force yourself to figure something out right now. Continue through the training and your're mind will clear up as you go.

A tip I can make is, just start to think about this throughout the day as you go about your normal tasks. You'll start to find that you'll pick up on ideas while listening to the radio, audiobook, talking to people and something will click.

I'm just about there too. I feel like I'm just about settled on a niche for my site. Im currently continuing the training to reinforce my idea.

Hope that helps you.

Do some people not bother with a niche website and just build a website to promote WA?

Also, if you need 25 or 30 posts to get a website noticed, how can you possibly write that many posts about becoming a WA affiliate?

It looks like we are talking about two different things here. It seems most people on here would actually have at least two websites. One for a niche and one for promoting and selling the WA brand.
Reply

You don't need to write 25 or 30 post specifically on becoming a WA affiliate. You can write articles about websites, hosting, SEO, other affiliate program reviews, etc. Just write stuff about affiliate marketing and making money online, and then link most of those posts back to your review of WA.

Hope this helps!

Hi Guys! So here I am with a music brand "Acoustic Attack" (You can find on Youtube).

Now the problem I was finding while trying to figure out how to monetize it is I am not a musician. I don't play instruments and i don't sing. I don't want to be writing articles to become an authority about music because...well im not.

But what I have done is help musicians think of ways to build their brand and maximize more revenue streams by considering more ways to make money online. But the only thing I've helped them with was merchandise.

After starting this training now Im thinking that maybe I should figure out how to promote affiliate marketing to struggling musicians?

Any advice about how to evolve this idea?
Reply
TysonE1 Premium
I'm not full of ideas at the moment, but I would say as someone with a lot of friends in the music industry: Musicians are often hurting for cash, so saving a buck always helps. Affiliate marketing has very low startup costs so I think it might be a good point worth mentioning.

Cheers

Hi there, Ryan! Working with musicians can be tricky, especially if you aren't a musician. But luckily, I trust that you have enough experience in your industry to present your knowledge in many ways.

Since your expertise is in photography and videography, you can use Acoustic Attack as a case study example to showcase how you helped to build their brand leveraging eCommerce?

If you are going to focus on struggling musicians, what is the genre of music and how does your expertise (photography/videography)
help them to hone their craft?

After visiting your YouTube channel, I came up with this idea.
- Create a website dedicated to indie music fans teaching them how to leverage their online presence using professional, high-quality videography.

You can niche it down even further if you choose. You don't have to rely on wordy articles for all your blogs because videography is your expertise. Position yourself as an expert in teaching videography or photography to "struggling musicians" to increase their brand awareness online and offline.

Let me know if this helps you in your brainstorming.

Hi Angelica, I love your idea, this gave me a better idea on how link my niche to promoting WA. I'm planning to do something on the lines of beauty, fashion, culture and self discovery.

One last thing that i'm still wondering is if i should use a personal branding or an entity branding?
Reply
AngelicaW11 Premium
Hi Winnie! I'm glad that I helped bring some clarity to your niching process. Your positioning for your brand depends on the ideal audience that you want to attract. Knowingly, your personal identity isn't going to be completely separate from your business, especially if you are the face of the brand.

Since you've mentioned self-discovery, I assume that you want to build an online business as a personal brand. If that's the case, your audience must understand your story, your personal journey and how the beauty industry has influenced you as a person to build an online business on this topic.

Even if you decide to build an online business as a personal brand, your business goal and your personal journey must communicate the same story to your audience.

Example: Ellen Degeneres = Kindness | Oprah = Inspiration

Hi there, Rebaone! There are A LOT of "internet marketing gurus" and "online marketing gurus" to go around. So please, focus on positioning yourself to be different from the pack. :-).

Regardless of what type of online business you are creating, you must remember that YOU are your brand. Your personal identity is never completely separate from your businesses. Yes, your business has an ideal person in mind that you are communicating your message to but it is YOU that your people connect with, not your logo or your fancy copy.

The most successful marketers in the world understand that tapping into emotions is what attracts and keeps attention online and offline. So if your ideal audience is "work from home parents" (I fit into this category), think about their daily lives and how can your expertise in affiliate marketing best serve them.

How can Wealthy Affiliate help work-from-home parents achieve their ideal lifestyle? What do you know to get them one step closer?

As for naming your brand/ business, check out Alexandra Watkins book, Hello, My Name Is Awesome: How to Create Brand Names That Stick.

I hope you found this information helpful.

My dream is to run a business that improves the lives of people and the ecosystem through advancements in technology, science, medicine, labor, social behavior, etc..

My business education will be completely self-taught, although I'm still contemplating taking online courses. I bought this book called "MBA: Mastering the Art of Business," which is a self-help guide on learning business without getting a college degree. I want people to follow my journey into becoming a great business leader and I want to somehow incorporate that into a niche that promotes Wealthy Affiliate.

I'm having a hard time deciding what niche or brand direction I should choose involving my business education plans. Does anyone have any ideas as to what direction I should take?

Hey Jay - good to have you here man, I think you're going to go a long way. My mum had Motor Neurone Disease so I have an idea of the hell you're going through.

Right, you've got some ideas but you're not sure of the direction you want to go in.
You've given some clues: "advancements in technology, science, medicine, labor, social behavior etc." - let's say you were stuck in a hospital lift with one of the Shark Tank investors - which topic could/would you talk about in such a way that they would find interesting?
If you can choose one then that's the direction you'll be wanting to take - you know the subject (or you want to know more about it), you're confident enough to talk about it and you can talk about it in a way to keep complete strangers interested.

Hope that helps bud - give me a message if you want any more help
Have a great day

My idea is to focus on the Millennial age group.
Naming my site Affiliate Alliance (AA / A+ Affiliate) - Standing together to build financial freedom.
You don't have to be a graduate to become an A+ student in financial freedom.
Align yourself with the A+ Affiliate program
Yay or Nay??

That's awesome. The Millennial's need someone like you! A lot of them are thinking they should get a hand "out", but you're going to offer them a hand "up". So empowering. Stay strong, you can do it!

I like it, and Millenials need the education and freedom just as bad as anyone here. Lets work hard to help build the community.

I have not decided what my niche should be, I find myself thinking of something, then all of a sudden I feel my niche became to broad. I do not want to create another Amazon site :)
I have thus decided to narrow down my options and use all my energy and focus into making WA my niche. Learn as I go along, start creating an income while I source my perfect niche.....and off course working towards Las Vegas.

Yeah, you definitely don't want to create Amazon, you want to be much more narrow with your niche.

If you want to promote WA and work within the "make money niche", go through the Affiliate Bootcamp training. If you want to build a business within another niche, head through the Get Started Here training.

Focus on just one though. You are going to be much more successful if you focus on one business/website versus trying to do too many things at once. You can always diversify down the road.

Hope this helps you out here Inge!

I am thinking of building a brand to market WA (and probably other related things as I grow) to people seeking to replace their existing (or former) careers with high-earning, online self-employment (basically people who are in the same position I am in right now). I already own a .com that I think will work very well with this niche and audience.

I guess my question is have I refined my audience sufficiently or do I need to narrow my scope a bit more?

it may be too narrow, lol. Have you done any keyword research yet? What kind of keywords are you finding

I really want to target stay at home moms and dads since that is becoming more of the "social norm" for some families. I have fibromyalgia and can no longer work in a "normal" work setting. sitting, standing, laying, anything for too long just makes the pain worse especially during flare ups. So I stay home and take care of my kids. Being a stay at home parent is actually far more difficult than most people realize. Your work doesn't end till the little ones go to bed and even then it sometimes doesn't stop. So I want to target stay at home parents and maybe bring chronic illnesses that you cannot just look at someone and see as well? Do you think that there is place for something like this?

I think that is a great niche. My brother in law has MD. He is severe but his brain is still good. I think if you can find a way to encourage these types of people to try an online business it will boost their self esteem and give them something to look forward to each day. How awesome is it to wake up and check your bank account to see that you made money while sleeping?
For the stay at home parents it is also a great idea because it gives them a sense of pride helping the family bring in an income and the little ones can see what you do and be proud. Kids mimic everything. They are sponges and what better milk to soak up than being an entrepreneur.

Hard work always pays off. Let's just focus on educating ourselves and learning the proven strategies that are being taught. Dreams come true, but we've got to do it the right way, with focus and perseverance. I suggest you use that positiveness to inspire others, it will be more fulfilling.

I would like to keep my niche to be 'Home Business' I am from India. There are some states in India where industry will not thrive. So they have to leave their family and stay in some unknown places waiting for a holiday to meet their family. If they can earn for sure while staying at home they will love it. I think same issue will be with other countries also.If some programme can help to sustain their life they will be happy as they can be with family.I want to target them. I am into dropshipping currently. I learnt about setting a shopify store, searching for winning products,running fb ads etc. I am not a master of it. But I understand the concepts quite very well. Can I somehow link this to my idea while promoting wealthy affiliate. Kindly provide advice. The other things I am interested is as a clinician I have good knowledge about medical topics.But I would like to promote wealthy affiliate.How to go about it?

Hi Arun,

It'll be hard to convert anyone if you connected your e-commerce shops to promoting WA because they are not in the same niche.

Here, you will learn through the Affiliate Bootcamp course how to build a website that drives its own free highly targeted traffic from search engines to promote WA.

It's the same course I took and I make a full time income promoting them.

I suggest you take promoting WA as a separate business because it's highly competitive and will take a lot of your efforts to make this work.

If you chose a niche closer to what your ecom stores are about, then you may be able to build a website that drives its own traffic to your own shops!

So I think that is much better path for you, and if you agree, then you need to take the first course, Online Entrepreneur Certification course.

I hope this helps you,
Grace

Thanks a lot dear Grace. It is a good idea. But my store is a general store not a niche store.Apart from that I have a blog on sharemarket and cryptocurrency.As a medical person I am passionate about health related topics too. I know I can make a new site here about it in WA.So kindly advise what route should I take now. One again thanks a lot to take the pain and effort for replying my messages.
