Welcome to the Affiliate Bootcamp!

Are you ready to learn a lot, have a bunch of fun, build a full time income and brand, and promote a platform that you can believe in, trust and that can truly help people in a positive way?

If your answer is yes, then you are definitely in the right place and I know you are going to love what we have in store for you in the upcoming lessons.

First things first though, a little run down of the affiliate program at Wealthy Affiliate and how this training will work.

Who Am I & Why Do I Care?

I am Kyle, co-founder of Wealthy Affiliate. I am going to be walking you through the process of building a business online, through the promotion of WA and likely other programs. I have been actively working with close to 1,000,000 affiliates since 2005 and I have helped MANY create full time, 6-7 figure businesses online.

That is my absolute focus with you. Success.

I want to help you build a full time business and an established brand online. I also want to personally be hanging out with you every year at our fully paid for, Annual Super Affiliate Conference in Las Vegas (more on that later).

Wealthy Affiliate is mine and Carson's passion (me on left with family, Carson on right). We live and breathe Wealthy Affiliate and as time goes on, the platform here truly evolves and gets better with every day that passes. We built WA based on helping people succeed, and we don't have any plans to divert from our core principles.

If you are committed to this training, I am committed to you! That I can assure you of.

So if you are ready to do BIG things online, I am ready to help you get there. :)

The WA Affiliate Program, It's Awesome!

The affiliate program here at Wealthy Affiliate is one of the most technologically advanced, sophisticated, and progressive platforms in the world. We were born and raised in this industry as “affiliates” and we are still affiliates to this day. It's in our genetic code!

Because of this and being involved in 100’s of different affiliate programs over the years, we have a very good grasp as to what affiliates want and we are constantly working to over deliver.

There are many different aspects to the WA Affiliate Program that you can leverage to maximize your reach, revenue and overall conversions and I am going to give you a brief overview of these now. Of course as we move through the Bootcamp training, I am going to be getting more and more advanced with this training.

A few important menus I want you to understand. The first is the "Airplane" icon in the header, if you click this you will be able to access the full affiliate resource menu (as shown below).

This menu includes SEVEN items, I am going to quickly run you through all of them and then provide you with a video walking you through the ALL aspects of the affiliate program in its entirety.

  • Program Details. This is where you can go to get full details about the Affiliate Program, the commission structures,
  • My Stats. This is where you can go to get detailed information about stats and all commissions/transactions.
  • My Referrals. This will show you all your referrals that have joined through your affiliate link, both Starter and Premium.
  • Links & Tracking. This is where you can to get all of your affiliate links, to create your own tracking links, and to add tracking for services like Google Adwords, BingAds.com and Facebook.com.
  • Messages. These are automated, follow-up messages that you can create for your referrals!
  • Banners. Self explanatory here, these are banners that you can use on social media, on your website, or anywhere you like that you can add a banner promoting WA.

Within the side bar, you will see the Affiliate Bootcamp button within the menu:.


If you click this menu, it will pop open all of the phases of Bootcamp. Each Phase has 10 lessons and as you move through this training and check off the tasks, you are going to notice that the Affiliate Bootcamp button text will update to reflect which lesson you are currently on.

In other words, it is a "smart" button and will always take you back to your last completed task within the training.

Your Potential & Commission Structure.

The affiliate program at Wealthy Affiliate is not just advanced from a technology standpoint, but you are also getting one of the most appealing RECURRING commission structures in all of the affiliate marketing space.

Invites: They Join WA for Free

STARTER Member Commissions:

Initial $19 offer, Commission = $4
$49/mth, Commission = $11.25 recurring
$359/year, Commission = $87.50 recurring

If you are a Premium Member here at Wealthy Affiliate, you get double the commissions as an affiliate and you also get to take part in our $1 credit program, which allows you to earn from free members you sign-up that set-up their accounts. You also earn money with each domain your referrals buy.

PREMIUM Member Commissions: (100% higher commissions!!!)

Credits: They Set-up their account = $1
Domain Purchases: $1 recurring
Initial $19 offer, Commission = $8
$49/mth, Commission = $23.50 recurring
$359/year, Commission = $175 recurring!

**Note: on average 1:8 upgrade to yearly, depending on the affiliate, and 12% of all free Starter referrals end up going Premium.

When you sign-up someone for free, your goal is to get them to set-up their account. Setting up ones account will lead you to an initial $1 (2 credits x $0.50). These add up when you are a Premium member.

When someone sets up their account, they are granted an initial $19 first month offer. This converts very well and almost everyone decides to stay after the first month because of the value, the quality of the services, the help they get, and the overall positive experience offered here at Wealthy Affiliate.

We offer lifetime commissions and lifetime cookies, which is truly unheard of in the industry. If you refer someone to WA, they are your referral FOREVER.

Unlike many programs in the industry that focus on "taking advantage of customers", our focus has and always will be making our service better. The better our service gets, the more people that stick around, stick around for longer, and the better our conversions get.

That is our PATH to making you more money. Striving to make our service the best in the industry is our goal and this will remain our constant focus. The MONEY you earn as a result of this and the trust you build from the people you refer to Wealthy Affiliate will lead you to a long term and INCREDIBLE business online.

**We pay out on the 1st of every month, and we have not missed a single affiliate payment since our inception 12 years ago. We pay on time and we pay out MILLIONS of DOLLARS per year!

Task 1: Add Your Affiliate Goals!

We have created a discussion where you can add your affiliate goals, not just for the upcoming bootcamp though. I am a long term guy myself. I know what can be accomplished in a year...a year is a like a blink in time and before you know it next year is going to be here.

What if you could make 100 referrals by next year...what about 200...what about 500....a 1000? Be realistic, but be unrealistic. You never reach goals that you thought were unattainable if you never set them.

Add your goals here within the following thread.

==> ADD YOUR GOALS: What are your WA Promotional Goals in 2018?

Also, comment on AT LEAST two other people's goals within the thread. This is a community here at WA and we are all here to help one another succeed.

You can begin your networking now and you are going to build some awesome relationships which will only further your online success. So take a minute and encourage at least two other people with their goals as well.

I want to let you know about something as well. If you can reach 300 unique referrals through the course of this year, we are going to fly you to Vegas for a private conference (read below).

Task 2: Las Vegas, We Want YOU There in 2019!

We like to do things differently at Wealthy Affiliate. Other companies try to convince you to attend their "high ticket" conferences, we want to PAY for you to come to our conference.

Every year we run an ultra exclusive WA Super Affiliate Conference in Las Vegas, all expenses paid. You may have noticed a counter in your Airplane Icon in the header, if you can make 300 referrals in a calendar year, you are going to be personally invited by Carson and myself to hang out in Vegas next year.

Read about the experience from the most recent years conference. It was the most powerful, amazing conference to date and we would love nothing more than to have you there next year!

DISCUSSION: Vegas 2018. It was big. Vegas 2019 Will Be BIGGER!

Task 3: Watch the Affiliate Program Walk through

Here is an introduction video to Wealthy Affiliate. This is going to give you an overview of your stats pages and show you around the set-up of your affiliate account.


DISCUSS VIDEO: WA Affiliate Program - A Comprehensive Walkthrough

It is important that you go through this so you fully understand the process.

Task 4: Officially Join the Affiliate Bootcamp

We run promotions throughout the year and update our affiliate program regularly. We want to keep you informed of any timely offers that you can take advantage of. We will also be able to connect with you to offer specialized training, promotional materials, motivation, and new advancements to the Bootcamp course.

You Are Already Officially Part of Affiliate Bootcamp!

This is a necessity if you want to become a top affiliate. I want you to take a second right now and officially join Affiliate Bootcamp by clicking the button above. It is going to help you keep on track, keep you informed, and is going to allow us help you make more money! This is a requirement to continue with this course...and something that is going to help you out as well!


Tasks 0/4 completed
1. Add Your Affiliate Goals in terms of Referrals # to the Discussion
2. Comment on at least 2 other peoples goals
3. Tell us if you plan on making the Las Vegas Conference in 2019!

So I've refined the target market to:
Single Moms, whose children have grown and left the nest, she's divorced, husband left her for a younger woman and since she stayed home to raise the children, she has no retirement fund. She needs help. WA.to the rescue. So I'm searching for a name of the business to target this market. will do a keyword search. Thanks

lol you may have dialled down that niche VERY tightly! Mom's with empty nests and empty retirement funds would have lots of categories that you could include eg divorcees, divorcees who were left for a younger woman, and empty nesters who just want more money to supplement their retirement

maybe start with a free site and when you get writing your posts and doing up your menu you'll see how much you can write in a particular direction

Back again, after 13 months hiatus. But all along I've been learning! It's like deciding to join WA is the equivalent of cracking open the door to this game. It wants to open up all the way, and here I am to see how to take things a step further and hopefully monetize what I've been learning about life, business and online opportunity. Thanks for being here guys - I think I've got a great niche this time...will share soon!

Ok. So I am doing this boot camp, but also doing the other "get started here" program for my own website/niche. That website is targeting home schooling moms. I am looking for help in choosing a target audience for my WA website. I feel like stay at home moms is already too saturated, but maybe not? Or should I specify home school moms again? (we always are looking for ways to make money from home). Or should I pick from the above list? Maybe just stick to something like middle class families who are all struggling nowadays.... I can't decide...

Hello, I will be upgrading at a Premium business owner. As the first month is $19. I want to use my 30 days to learn everything I can prior to learning all the Premium. With that being said. I want to focus on looking for high traffic items that bring in higher commission with fewer traffic. I know it will cost money, I don't have a problem paying more for solid clicks. I just need help narrowing down the business.
Thanks in advance for your help

Hey everyone.
My mind is also kind of Jammed when it comes to choosing the brand for my self.
But I am more into:
● Fashion and Clothing(Like Vans , Adidas and more clothing)
● Teaching people how to Make money for themselves without depending on any boss ( which is here at WA by referring them)
●Online Business Success
●Travelling without stressing about money . (While they will learn how to make it here)
●Becoming your own Boss without Having to sacricice your mornings for 9/5 work.

So I really don't know which one to start with. So can anybody please cleanse my mind with a piece of advice?

Hi, it sounds like fashion might be your thing, but you should base your direction according to your most passionate interest since you'll need to write a lot about it. If you go with fashion you'd be better with the Entrepreneur Certification course, if you choose helping people make money then this one is your best bet. Keep in mind that any niche site can also promote WA, the right way is taught later. Best wishes!

So i've picked some Target Audiences that interest me in order which are:

1. Real Estate Investors
2. New Career Seekers
3. People Seeking any type of Employment
4. Criminal Employment
5. Online Survey Takers

Real Estate Investors had recently caught my attention prior to joining Wealthy Affiliates here. So.. Heres what i came up with

1. Target Audience - Real Estate Investors

2. Brand - Real Deal Real Estate

I know thats kind of copying a little bit but whats your opinion?
Reply

Real estate investors can be narrowed down some more I think.
Are you talking about international or local or affordable or luxury?

Are you talking about buildings, condos or share papers?

So, I worked on the first ten lessons just getting started, and decided to get right into Affiliate Bootcamp lessons.
I'm not sure what to choose for my Brand Direction.
I wanted to market WA, however i'd like to be involved in affiliate marketing with the companies that allow you to do that and make money, also. I'm just getting started, and I "can't connect the dots" just yet to be able to answer their questions when you go to join their affiliate program.
Am I just getting ahead of myself here for right now, this early in the process?
I certainly don't want to skip any steps. Just trying to find out how to start earning while I am still training.
If I'm trying too much too soon, someone please tell me and give me some advice.
Thanks,
Cecil

I think starting with selling at this stage is not easy. I recommend getting your website some traffic first and some quality content.

The WA affiliate program you can join already and write your first review but other programs like Amazon or JC I would wait for some months.
Reply
ok, I appreciate the info.
I kinda figured it'd be too soon for that at this time.
I'm not too spiffy on the computer business yet, but some of the training thus far has given me some good ideas.
So, I'll just keep up the training and I'm thinking as soon as I upgrade to premium, that would open up more ideas as well.
In the meantime, Thanks very much for the help.
At first, I wasn't sure I'd get the kind of caring help and advice I've received so far.
But, I've pleasantly surprised.
Thanks again!

Thanks for asking this question.

This is also something I'm excited about.

Currently, I focused on the Bootcamp training since I already have a website that fits for promoting WA.

In addition, you should be ready if you start being an affiliate with Amazon and others because I think they stringent with their terms and conditions.

My thought for a direction is helping people generate income that want to live in an RV and travel the continent. I've seen many vague articles one starting your own business but never fleshed out. With the RV industry growing every year, and many living on the road, this seems like a good niche. Does this seem reasonable?
Reply
MozMary Premium
there's certainly a huge audience for RVs globally, check to see what others are doing in this niche and where you think your audience is, also look into affiliate programs for it, google rv affiliate programs see what comes up, then there's all sort of accessories

you are currently in bootcamp though so hop over to the entrepreneur course for this niche, and remember to use the free sites to start off the training while you consider your niche

I really need help setting my direction because I have changed niches so many times in the last 4 months trying to see what I can do well and what makes money. Well I haven't done either for anything I have done so far. I haven't even been able to finish any of the 7 websites I've started because Wordpress is just so darn hard! I like the internet marketing niche, but feel so put off by it right now because I have fallen into so many scams. But something that I really like is technology: having the latest gadgets, the incredible creativity that goes into building software and apps. I love the company Apple for its philosophy of innovation and freedom and creativity. And basically what I want to do is to create or find things that help make people's lives easier. This can be technology or something that I found on amazon the other day that is an alarm clock in a rug that won't turn off until you get up from bed. Those are the kind of products that I love to find and would love to share with people to make their lives easier. So is that a direction? Finding and creating products to make people's lives easier?
Reply
Zappades Premium
Actually, I think every new product should somehow make peoples life easier.
Our websites as well should be in the end something helping people find a solution for problems that make their life hard.

I am afraid if you really tried 7 different niches in six months you will not be able to see any success.

I'm on my third now during a year but now I want to stick to it for at least 12 months.

I think I already see better results after three months than with the first one.

Of course, the choice of a good niche is very important.

I think the new niche you chose can be a success if you stick with it. You can do that if you are passionate about it and keep working even you don't see any money results right away.

The best way to find Your actual niche is to find your Target Audience. Because this way you will aim your content to the group of people you wish to give value to. Value is a powerful key factor in making success in life overall.

This can also be seen as the "Golden Circle effect". - What - How - Why.

The Target Audience training can be found here: And was originally posted in Phase 1 / Lesson 3.

Let me know if you have trouble to grasp the concept (because I sure did!)

Lastly, good luck with your endeavours,
Robin

have you thought of doing youtube reviews on the products that excite you?

your reason for not doing the internet marketing niche didn't add up for me - you've fallen into so many scams, but you are not in a scam now and you've got great past experience so sounds like you have research done already in this but it doesn't actually excite you? Best to go with what you love. Btw @RICH failed in a bunch of niches starting off but was making $100k a month a few years later, so it's not about failing to find a perfect niche in the beginning...give yourself time to go through the training

You can be successful with a website, of any type. It doesn't have to be Wordpress, but you will gain access to all of the features available here if it is.

One thing that you will want to avoid is the preloading screen on every page, that can adversely impact the rankings on your website.

Hey everyone, I have an issue regarding the All in One SEO plugin... Maybe I'm missing something, but I'm positive I installed it and I'm not seeing it under the dashboard button. I also went and searched for it in my plugins page and it's not showing up anywhere at all.

I tried to re-download it by searching for the plugin in the search bar, but it takes me to a page that explains only premium members can add new plugins.

How can I resolve this?
Reply
hagstf Premium
The All In One SEO plugins should already be installed by default to all the websites here at WA.

Just for clarification, In your WordPress editor, navigate to Plugins then Installed Plugins.

If you don't see it listed there then, as a starter member, you would have to delete the site and create a new one.

To delete the site, go to the SiteRubix SiteManager, click the details button then scroll all the way to the bottom and you will see the delete button there.

It doesn't matter if your post title is the not same as your keywords, right?

I come think because you input keywords in the SEO settings.
I tried to search online using the keywords I like but the number one site shown doesn't have the same title as the keywords I typed in google.
Reply
BrianCh Premium
Hi Frank, your keyword does not necessarily have to be in your title verbatim (exactly) but you must definitely use it in the meta description when you do the SEO settings.

Do a test for yourself. When you type in a search on Google and you see that the title doesn't have the same keyword that you typed in you will notice that it is somewhere in the description just below the title.

Also if you do a search and you put your keyword in " " this will usually yield the exact results.

All the best,

Brian

Okay, I'll explain further. For my site to have the feel I want, I will need team members (part of the community here at WA) with pictures, perhaps testimonials and a LOT more knowledge to guide new members

. Obviously, new members will have all I wish I could put on my site when they join WA. I guess I will just have to learn enough about WA, informational wise, to sell my site.

What sold me was my drive. Not everybody thinks this way.

Make sense?

I say don't overcomplicate things for yourself in the beginning or get hung up on a website domain name. Just choose anything that you believe describes what you'll be talking about and put it on there. Or you could put 'your name...' and whatever you'll be talking about. For example: 'Nick-makesmoneyonline.com' etc.

You won't be just making one website or business in your entire affiliate/internet marketing career. The quicker you get out there and start seeing how things are done the more motivated you'll be to keep going.
Reply
Kyle Premium
I would avoid using "-" in your domain name, but yes, great advice here.

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 thanks for that. I agree with the "brandable" domain name rather than just focusing on keywords when creating it.

I want my niche to be living life positively , lots of quotes and speakers (may even be able to promote some speakers/authors products later) i want my website to attract the attention of those whose life isnt working out the way they planned, this will allow me to campaign on various platform etc ie unemployed, new mums not wanting to go back to work people looking for "something" i was thinking of my brand being "THRIVE"
am i heading in the right direction here? or am i still too broad? can anyone help?
Reply
Nick909 Premium
I think you are going in the right direction but its still a little too broad. You said "living life positively" and "isn't working out the way they planned". How isnt it working out the way they planned? In what? Do they need to get out of debt? Do they hate their job?

And if it's going to be specifically about 'making money online' then THRIVE is too broad because the term literally means abundance in everything. Somebody thriving is enjoying abundance in ALL life areas. Maybe something like 'NewMomsMakeMoney'? That's more niche specific and geared toward promoting WA. You could literally just slap a WA banner on the first page and show new moms how to make money from home.

And if you want to expand in the future to go more broad you could always do that. New Moms need diapers, baby bottles, baby formula etc. With their newfound online incomes they could now purchase these products/services from your new links promoting affiliate products all mom-related.

I'm thinking of promoting a book I wrote on line, published through Author House, which I believe are just a bunch of money hungry people who would publish gibberish to make a buck. Buck that's besides the point. the point is could I promote my book through my own web sight and then sell it on line. Just a thought I had. Of course I had it copy written before I went to them. Maybe I could get someone thoughts on this Idea.
Reply

Yes you can definitely promote your book along with many other things through your website.

What you promote at the end of the day is completely up to you, we are first going to be focusing on building out and establishing your brand/authority, and then from there we are going to be focusing on getting traffic,

Once you have traffic (people) coming to your website, the sky is the limit.

Hello every one I wan someone to explain me what is the exact meaning of choosing your direction that is naming your website. would it be generic or specific name? and how will I choose it i mean of course i would consider all the Jaxxy things but how will the niche rise in your mind so that it would be flawless idea for next steps. Thank you

There are many great niche ideas for promoting WA. You can run with a more common niche idea that is related to 'make money online' but there are many ways to narrow this down and many unique niche ideas that are perfect for promoting WA.

This article will give you some cool ideas: Yep, you want to choose a specific name for your website. In terms of choosing your site name/ domain name, I recommend going with something 'brandable'. Something that makes sense to your audience so they know what your site is about, and something that is memorable.

Hope this helps!
Reply
EOPolini Premium
Hi, I personally would go somewhat generic on the name, as long as it is brandable and memorable; I like to think short and catchy like Apple.com, which has nothing to do with computers. The reason is, there are many possible target audiences in the "make money" niche, such as young college students, stay at home parents, retirees, etc. Although you'd want to start narrow, there's no reason not to tackle them all as your authority site grows. Best wishes!
Reply
Nick909 Premium
I say forget about the idea of it being flawless and just go for something you like and break it down to it being niche specific. You might have to do a little brainstorming and choose several...narrowing it down to the one you like most with what you feel will give the best results.

And don't get so hung up on the website name. Honestly it could just be your name and whatever you'll talk about in the title. People want good content. If your content gives them an answer to their problem they couldn't care less about your website name. Just make sure it gives a clear description of what you're talking about though.
Reply
Thank You so much...

clarerubel Premium
Well, if you're "branding", what do you think will be memorable?

I chose my domain name by thinking of my website's purpose or overall result.

Since you're helping the public, what does your customer want to have. They want to "have" something which is why they read your blog or came to your site.

I think it's to be some kind of brand recognition. You can start with a symbol and then, name it.

These are my only ideas, so far. My friend wrote a book on Branding, but I haven't read it, yet.

Hi, interesting niche; you might want to focus on one or the other at first, just to narrow it down, with the vision of expanding your coverage later on. I would let the keywords guide you as to what people are searching for in these areas. Best wishes!

Hello everyone, I am new to WA and have no experience with online marketing (or any marketing for that matter). I have several ideas of direction/brand for possible websites for promoting WA, but I am wondering if it is advisable to try to start more than one at a time or if I should only start with one website and then try to expand later as that one gets going?

Focus on just ONE website and create success with that before diversifying and creating multiple niche websites.

It only takes ONE website in one niche to be very successful online. I usually find that folks that try to do too much at once (focus on several niche websites) end up in a state of mediocrity because it can be overwhelming and you don't really ever become the expert in just one niche.

It is the experts (specialists) that create long term, successful businesses in any niche.

Hello, lovely WA friends,
Since English is not my mother language, I am kind of stuck at this stage of progress.
Am thinking, to start making money soonest, perhaps I can start making money while I am still struggling building my website by creating a landing page. Can anybody help me with your opinion?

First off, your English is quite good! You are going to be just fine and you only get better at something (like learning a language) one way, by practicing.

Also, if you understand the training you will be just fine. You can create your websites here at WA in any language that you want and market to any audience. :)

You are going to be just fine Ivonne! If you need a hand with anything going forward, let me know and I will give you a hand.

I have a question about the "Your Initial Framework Of Content" part of this training. I was wondering why we aren't recommended to use the "Auto Terms of Service and Privacy Policy" WordPress plugin that does this for you. Is it just because starter members cannot install WordPress plugins, or is there a good reason not to use this plugin that I am unaware of? I am planning on using this after I upgrade, unless there is some reason not to. Thank you all!

Ideally, you want to use as few plugins as possible since they can seriously bog down your site (make it run/load slower). So it's always good practice to find other solutions to simple stuff like this where possible.

These videos are absolutely wonderful! And, as someone who has some knowledge of digital marketing, I know the power of some of the tools being shown off here. With the right knowledge and a lot of hard work you can really turn this into something. With every passing video, I believe a little more...

I would like to ask though, the countdown for Vegas, does it count every time someone signs up for premium? Like if for some reason everyone just signed up for the $19 and then quit after the first month, would that count? Just trying to understand fully, because I really want to go on that trip!

Yes, so long as a free member signs up to become a premium member for at least one month, that counts!

So I love Gardening and using Essential Oil's. Those are the 2 that I have chosen to start with....Weather is another one but I am going hang back on that one for a little bit. The ideas for the others are easier. I am thinking I may need to change my site name....not the address as it is a thing. See I have 2 sites already built for both of these....but I want to make the 2 here kinda like sister sites. Where links from the other site points to these for an expansion on the information provided. Just about all of my current sites start with honeybee...it's the meaning of Melissa in Greek. So I am just trying to see if this is a good idea....

Hi, everyone!

My chosen niche is making money online. Someone just told me that there is a lot of competition in promotion of WA. Is there any suggestion on how can I deal with it? Should I focus on the way I of marketing? If promoting WA alone is not a good idea, what other products from "making money online" niche would you recommend promoting?

Your help is strongly appreciated.

P.S. Please, don't think that I'm in any sort of rush. I just want to get some information in advance, so I can start building my campaign strategy. As they say, forewarned is forearmed.

Best of luck with your ventures! I'm sure we'll all succeed!

Hi, you're wise :)
In fact, you chose a very competitive niche and a strongly promoted product.
This asks for a very good website made by you.
I believe there is always a way to be better than everyone else but for sure you'll need time to learn and get an authority in the niche.

I'd suggest you break down the niche a bit. MMO is in fact very very much floated on the internet.

gnag1995 Premium
Thank you for another feedback! For now, I decided to start with the affiliate marketing topic. So far, I just wrote a post about its basics.

Someone suggested me about learning other ways of making money online. That will probably be my next step, so I can cover tgese topics as well.

Best of luck in your endeavors!

Hi gnag, remember their is 3.5 billion on line looking for products and services. They say with marketing it takes a person about 7 times to be exposed to something before they decided to make a decision. So, a person may come across several affiliate programs before they come to your web-site while they decided to check it out and kick the tires. It is a numbers game. As you grow in your skills, your website will take on it's own personality that complements you. People are joining you and want to make a connection that speaks to them. Something in your story and how you project yourself to your audience will click that a person will make that choice to hop aboard.

There are so many other niches, you may want to diversify with other niches. When your ready as you learn your skills, and what you can afford in your marketing cost as you put back your investment back into your business. It will start paying for itself at some point.

For example, when you go into a store, a customer has several choices to buy items but all the profits go back to the store. The store will look at the numbers and make adjustments how to market some of the products that are not moving as fast. This is what your learning. Start with one product and as your confidence grows and the numbers look good to you then your ready add another and another then make adjustments.

It all boils down how much time, energy and expenses can you afford without spreading yourself too thin and staying focus. The WA program has done most of the hard work for you since they provide the training, tools and know how. No need to reinvent the wheel.

Hope that helps a little. Best of luck.

Optimize your site using the training here at WA. You will find that your posts rise to the top of the rankings fairly quickly.

There are very few places on the internet that teach what you are learning here. There are certainly some keywords that will be difficult to rank for but most of the low hanging fruit keywords will rank readily enough.

The exception, of course, is the MMO niche. (make money online) In this niche, the competition knows what they are doing.

Hi Anielka56, So lets think a little more outside the box. There are 3.5 billion people on the internet looking for various products and services and growing every day. We are talking about the world not a local market that your confined to. For example, in your field as a real estate agent the market can be competitive and saturated in a high demand area. Although, people are moving all the time for various reasons which makes your local market go up and down.

There is something like 1 million with WA at different levels in their journey. Some will procrastinate, some will do nothing other then a lot of thinking, some will get sidetracked and quite. Just human nature. A good example might be The Parable of the Sower in the Bible. Read Mark 4:1-20. This is what people do when given an opportunity. So how bad do you want your dream on this journey? Any journey has it's ups and downs as you go forward to succeed in your dream while you continue to persevere. This is a great community to get support and cheer you on in your journey.

You never want to upload a video directly on your website, rather upload it to Youtube first, and then embed it on your site. This way your site will load faster and you will also benefit from all of the traffic that Youtube gets.

I think you do. You'll be the judge of that. No matter how much competition is out there, it will always be room for more business. It's a lot of people in this world. You can also do research and find out about another field on the same subject that can be explored. Health and wellness is also my niche, but believe me, you can break it up in other subjects that will have a lot to do concerning Health and Wellness, or Personal Care, Nutrition... Or House Care, etc...You name it.

Research is very important.You see, Health and Wellness,... Being my niche, I still promote apparel, accessories, etc... It keeps going, it is always room for more subjects and more and more! It is no end. You are the one who decides when it's time to stop. As long it's harmony, it's ok. Really, I would say that my real niche is Natural Approach, organic, chemicals free choices, that is the title of my website. The niche can be stretched as far as you want it. As long as it makes sense, and you don't contradict yourself. I can even sell appliances if I want too. Really, I am promoting furniture also. As long as the material that was made, it was natural, organic.

I am sorry, I guess I have got carried away. I hope I was of some help. I am doing the best I can with a profession that nowadays, are on demand. I still believe that there is enough for everyone. We just have to work hard. Knowledge is a plus. The more you know, the more you succeed. Try always to keep yourself informed, and study all you need. We are well because information is at your fingertips, indeed.

Hi all,
At this point (just getting started), I don't know what to make my niche. I guess when you first start, this seems to be an issue for a lot of people.
I understand you could change your niche later, too.
Did I understand this correctly?
If the niche is an interest, I guess you could dive into more than one area of interest, couldn't you?
Thanks for all the help for the new kid on the block!!

A niche can honestly be anything, what are you passionate about? What are you interested in?

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

You could change your niche down the road, and you can eventually build several different businesses within different niches (which is quite normal once you get the formula down).

You just don't want to try to do too much when starting out, focus on just one niche, make a success of that before you diversify. ;)

Yes, that is because your homepage is your blog roll and will show snippets of your site. That is completely normal and what you want.

As you create new "posts" on your site, a snippet of them will be added in chronological order to your homepage.

I've been trying to narrow this down and this is where I am at, so far. I am a fitness and personal trainer. I have always been focused on healthy eating and a mindful lifestyle. I am quasi retired, but still actively pursuing that extra income that make life's luxuries that much more attainable. I thinking that my niche will be helping people make healthy lifestyle changes over the age of 45.
Does anyone think this is too broad a choice? Your thoughts you would be much appreciated.

Hi, it is broad, but not so much you couldn't cover it on one site; however, it's recommended to go narrow in the beginning, so you could break it down into categories and choose to focus on one at first, then later add another and so on. Just make sure your domain and site name are generic enough to accommodate whichever direction you go later. Hope that helps!

Hi Phillisy,
I guess I'd ask you at this point what healthy lifestyle changes you think are needed, and what you feel most passionate about. Also what lifestyle changes would you feel motivated to focus on most? I think you can narrow it down, you could focus, for example, on fruits that increase metabolism, healthy fats and how they help with weight maintenance, and the top ten foods to avoid. These are just a few examples. Hope that helps.

Hello bspmedic,

I'll share what works for me when doing something online: the purpose is to make some money, then you have to sell anything.

1º Find out what you are very good at doing

2º Investigate in goolgle if what you do there are people who need it.

3º What needs will you be covering with what you know how to do?

4º Look for an application to solve this need.

If you want to focus on entrepreneurs, this is great,

Do you know what challenges are the entrepreneurs?

In the case of a local business or one online, you have to find customers to have sales.

then what your entrepreneur needs is people / traffic, many people looking at your storefront, whether virtual or physical.

How to attract them?

find out what they need and what challenges they face on a daily basis so you do not need to sell, they will come looking for solutions,

this is the trick

end.

I want you to do very well in WA, let me know if you need more tips, in my blog I have some ideas

my best advice is:

listen in the forums that people complain, and focus on solutions,
I am also a beginner in WA but an expert in offline sales,

I'm on lesson 2 in bootcamp and I need to choose my brand. The tutorial is just for promoting the WA affiliate program. I have two other sites started, (two big interests i want to promote first) but I only have my" about me" post finished.
I'm confused, is this lesson 2 just training using the affiliate program as an example, or can I use my already started sites? If I brand WA, I will need to create another post, right? Am i missing something, or did the lessons skip completing a page? I would think I would need a complete, published blog before I can begin promoting it? Totally confused on the direction I am going!
Someone please set me in the right direction.

Hey J Willard, It's best you put your focus on 1 site as you go through the content and learn to set up everything. :-)

About me page is first,
next up is your privacy policy page, but everything is explained in the tutorials.

After you done that, make a disclaimer and if you need an ex, check on the footer of other sites in the same niche you are in. :-)

When you have finished that, you can start adding pages, like travel, or lifestyle, or contact me etc...

I hope this helps you out a little. Have an awesome day. :-)

The SiteContent is just a tool that helps your publish your post in your website. Whatever you do in the wordpress dashboard, SiteContent has no access to it, that's why you don't see anything.

If WA goes down meaning if they are having technical issues and the servers go down then, yes, your site will also go down but WA sites are double hosted and they have a mirror of your site running on another server in case of problems.

Alright, I have completed course 1 of starting my online business and my niche is about selling products relating to rock and roll and heavy metal, and to top it all off, I named my brand "Mock and Retal" (the first letters of rock and metal reversed).

Now, I'd like to expand in full detail of what my niche is about. I want my online business to sell rock and metal albums in both digital and hard copy; sell musical instruments like guitars, bass guitars, drum kits, etc; sell important gear that goes with these instruments, and have a forum that fosters a welcoming and discussion based environment for all lovers of rock and metal music. Now, is this too broad of a niche that might need to be reduced to only two of the four things I want to do with my website or is this an appropriate niche that sells stuff that is very much closely related to each other and should be left as I had it? Is there anything I could add to my niche that I haven't considered yet?

I'm 27 and have been working hard since I was 14 years old. Started cutting grass for cash until I was old enough to start building a resume.

Started at a fast food joint at 17 through my college days and got up to shift manager. Quit and dropped out because neither were my thing haha.

Began getting into what I loved doing which was working on cars. Worked at various dealerships and custom shops while delivering pizza on the side from 19 to 22 years old.

Loved working on cars but not the kind of jobs I had, so I quit and joined the military. Did 5 years and also got married. Recently got out while my Wife remains in the military.

We are stable and I can pursue whatever I like, but the everyday schedule and grind is not appealing to me anymore, so I'm out on the hunt for something new, to get my Wife out of the military and bring my family a life of happiness with little constraints so we can pursue things that make us happy as a family.

Sorry for the short story haha. But I plan to use this experience as a direction for my website to Promote WA with the idea of not being tied down to an unwanted and unsatisfying schedule.

Opinions, questions, criticism, remarks are all welcomed. Don't worry, I have very thick skin.

No apology necessary. Your enthusiasm resonates. I'm not much older than you but I appreciate such an ever-moving spirit at your age. I have 2 baby boys and I want to give them the world but I also want them to adopt an attitude similar to yours so that success becomes second nature.... But I wanna have your kinda attitude too!!!! Never lose it.

Well, this is my first shot at the About Me page - is it any good in your opinion? Be as harsh and critical as you can!

"Hello, I’m Walter and here to help.

These are dark times for those looking for extra income. If you’re a saver, or if you’ve managed to acquire a little capital, you’d like a reasonable return from it. The banks can no longer provide you with this – not with their miserable interest rates even on their most “generous” savings accounts. And there are loads of “make money from home” scams out there which turn out to be all promise and no profit.

I know this personally, because I too have tried to find a decent investment for my life’s savings and have fallen for more dubious make-money schemes than you could shake a training video at. I had all but given up hope of making an income that does more than keeping you one step away from the local food bank. Then a friend recommended Wealthy Affiliate.

But first, a little more about myself. Essentially, I come from an academic background. Although British by birth, I was raised in Belgium. There I had my education and was lucky enough to grow up in a multilingual environment. Once I finished my law studies, I was attracted to the international and European institutions, and worked for them in various capacities. I then decided to set up as a freelance translator, but that was a very lonely existence.

So I went into academia, but became increasingly disappointed with higher education in this country. This is why I have now shaken the dust of the University off my feet and am once again operating as a freelance translator. I also get some occasional work from my former employer. This enables me not only to keep the proverbial beast from the door but also to travel abroad quite often. I love travelling, especially to countries like Poland and Hungary (don’t ask).

Now if you’re quite comfortably off why are you doing this, I hear you cry. Well, there are a number of things I still want to achieve in my life that require a higher bank balance. I have quite a good voice, and joined lots of singing societies in my youth. But I let my job take me over and sadly neglected it. I want to take a year out to take go on a singing course in Italy before my voice drops yet another key. And I want to give some financial support to my local professional football club (which at present is one of those where they regularly announce the crowd changes to the team).

So I have started this journey with Wealthy Affiliate, and thus far the training and guidance I have had from this platform has been superb. There is now considerable light at the end of the tunnel, and soon I will even be able to switch on the heating. No but seriously, I have derived much benefit from it at such a modest price, and I want to share this opportunity with as many people as possible.

And so – welcome to my site, see you inside, and let’s take this exciting journey together!"

Hi Walter, I think you've done a great job with this. People know more about you, you've shared with them that you have also experienced online scams before and then you extend an invitation for them to find out more with you at WA.

Let's see what others have to say.

All the best,

Brian
