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 1.3 MILLION 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 "$" 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, your main affiliate link, your incentive countdown, etc.
  • My Stats. This is where you can go to get detailed information about stats and all commissions/transactions.
  • Tasks. These are all the interaction and communication (questions) that are taking place within WA in respect to your referrals. You will want to complete these as they come in, interacting with your referrals leads to much higher conversions.
  • 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 Training buttonwithin the menu. Then upon clicking that, it will open the training area and you will see the Affiliate Bootcamp training area as the second item down.

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
$234/six-month, Commission = $54 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
$234/six-month, Commission = $108 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 14 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 2019?

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 2020!

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: Las Vegas 2019. Incredible. 2020 Will Be Insanity!

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 Walk-through

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 2020!

by estimation, how many plugins will be needed to run an efficient website since to many plugins will sacrifice your website speed?

i hear it mentioned that upgrades on a plugin is not need could you give some more clarification
(1)are they not needed early on
(2)are they not needed at all
or will this be a personal preference as time goes on
Reply
SondraM Premium
Hi,

The number of plugins that you need and/or want will vary. I personally have tried to use a simple theme that is not bloated with lots of extras. I also try to keep the number of plugins that I am using under 5. I am more concerned about speed and things showing up correctly on mobile devices.

If you decide to upgrade your plugins, it will be personal preference. After two years, I have not upgraded one single plugin.

I did choose to upgrade my theme about a month ago because I wanted different font sizes without having to try to code it by hand. Again, it is entirely up to you and what you want.

Best wishes.

Any sample websites I could look at or some websites other affiliates have done? Either or both WA affiliate or other business of ones choice.
I’ve owned my own businesses and I’m excited to do a web base business (or eventually more), but from experience, having a solid, planned and sturdy foundation is crucial to success. Knowledge is power and I’m anxious to learn the new ways of making money, but want to get moving forward so need to decide which way to begin. WA Affilate referrals or one of the other ideas I have.
Your comments, questions and answers are all very helpful.

Hi Dorothy,

you can take a look at 5 awesome examples of affiliate marketing websites here: https://youronlinerevenue.com/awesome-examples-of-affiliate-marketing-websites/

You'll also see examples by using SiteComments or SiteFeedback platforms. Just keep in mind then that some of those websites are created by beginners and shouldn't be taken as an example. But some may be professional websites generating even +$10,000/month online.

I hope this helps.

Can you eventually market to two different niches or groups of people? Because I have 2 ideas I am very passionate about. My only worry is if I go too narrow it will be difficult to come up with ideas to talk about after awhile esp on You Tube? So my first group is disabled people or with chronic illness like myself who may also have huge medical bills (I would but I am Canadian so our taxes pay for our healthcare). Or idea two is the other half of my why: partners of oil-field workers (or other dangerous, going nowhere, hard on the body jobs) that want them to be able to retire or to do something safer (may not pay as well but I would be bringing in $) Sooo long novel to basically ask everyone’s opinion on which is better or could I use both because they are our story?

My niche is Drum roll please " College and University Students and graduates" Please comment.
Why my choice? 1. I love helping others right now this niche is very stressed with bill payments, learning and studying
So they don't have a pile of debt like their parents maybe even grandparents when they are out of school.
2. I hope they can start work life debt free
3. Internet is something they were born into so it's easy for them
Thanks for your feedback

By your description, are you looking at something like "debt-free college," or "ways to attend college debt-free?" Maybe narrow down exactly what you want to concentrate on.

After much deliberation, I've chosen to use combine my interests in creative pursuits and making money online to try to help people like me make enough to avoid having to work a 'regular' job they don't like.

I'm a freelance musician in two unfashionable genres and get by on that, but I want to have enough financial freedom to be able to dabble in other arts as well without worrying about the next rent payment.

I figured lots of people are in the same boat, so wondering about starting an e-zine using my experiences to help artists and musicians to be able to afford to do what they love, not what they're told.

Does that work?

Thanks, Kyle!

Edit: Meant to add a question, please (also to the W.A. community out there):

Would you lean toward creating a professional narrow-topic zine with its own domain - say electric violins & rock music - (more about community and gear/tech/album reviews)...

Would you go wider - say artists-in-general vs making money...and host the reviews and opinion pieces on a subdomain/directory of the broader personal site that hosts ALL my varied work/music/writing services? (More focused on entrepreneurship and driving traffic to my current business).

...a combination of the above?

Any advice appreciated - it's really got me thinking!

For promoting WA I am branding myself using attraction marketing.

I am my target market. A mum, kids, know of the possibilities of a digital life but just not sure what to do or how to go about making it happen. Desperate to break free from the 9-5.

I get a lot of the thought process:) I went through my history on my laptop and found all my google searches when I was looking at making money online. Lots of great keywords I picked up.

I have a great idea for a lead magnet so I can build a list to connect with potential prospects...1 of the many ways I intend on promoting WA. The ideas just keep coming..I think I am on the right track.
Please re-direct me if I am not.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, that is definitely a logical and good approach in my opinion. A busy mum, that is looking for flexibility and freedom by entering into the online business and affiliate marketing world.

Basically everyone in your situation can benefit from the services here at WA and would love the very fact of being able to do something the love, build a business, and do it from the comfort of their home.

I think you are thinking along the right lines here, now it is a matter of coming up with your brandable domain for your business. ;)

My direction is just like the example listed. I want to help others succeed and grow with them in the process. I am concerned about my title though and I have also unpublished my website until I am on track. I would love your input Kyle on my beginnings. I’m also having some website building issues and could use some help. But I need a little reassurance on my website name to start. As u pointed out your choice was hip and cool. My now seems long and boring 😂 I don’t know if I’m over thinking it. I’m going to include an attachment so you can view it. Thank you and all comments:suggestions are welcome.

Great Lesson. Cleared out many of my confusions. That's what training at WA is all about.

One question though - A keyword is a phrase and it needs to be backed up by a clause to make sense in the headline of the post. So if my low competition keyword is- Learn Affiliate Marketing Step by Step than in order to complete it I have to add a clause to the headline of my article.

So can my headline be - Learn Affiliate Marketing Step by Step, to become a successful affiliate marketer ? So that it makes full sense grammatically and can be a headline of my website's post. By doing this am I still targeting the keyword or not ?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yes, exactly. It should be within the headline, but you can add more text to your title to complete it and make it your own.

You should also include it somewhere within the first block of text, and then throughout the actual content just write your article naturally.

Don't overthink the process though. It isn't any more complex than that. You will also get more and more proficient as you build out your content.

What are your thoughts about buying expired domains with Domain Authority, an excellent backlink structure, checked in Archive.org for prior use as spam and has only one or two registrar drops and both are clean (no spam) ? Is there any advantage in terms of how fast content will rank and how high it will rank based on it's existing DA and PA, CF and TF, etc..?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Domain authority doesn't play much role, unless the domain has been active with "content" being published on it. Squatting on domains doesn't create authority to rank, although people with "old" domains will try to sell you on that.

I always choose do not allow because I don't plan on using any of the image credits. So, I don't want to be getting emails or anything like that.

We get as many free images as we want when we use the Site Content platform to draft our posts. Plus, Kyle points us to where we can get them from if we are working directly from Word Press.

I also do a lot of my own photography. So, those are the reasons I say no.

Hi Kyle scotty B here 🎵
I know we should Target one keyword per Post. My question is can we insert most of the researched keywords we get From That Keyword to increase the possibilities of people clicking. I 'm just thinking not everyone will type that one keyword or keyword phrase. But others might click on other low competition ones Related to it that we reached ? Is the focus of our keyword research to include the ones we Found that make sense and low completion From the main one ?........Scotty B 🎵
Reply
Kyle Premium
Sure, you can have variants of this keyword within the post, under one condition. It needs to be natural. If it feels like you are forcing keywords and stuffing them into your content, you probably are. Avoid doing that.

There are going to be TONS of low competition keywords as you start doing research. ;)

Nobody starts off as an expert within any niche, nobody. Every expert you see out there started off somewhere and the online world and what you learn here is going to walk you through the process of becoming an expert.

Every expert surgeon started off at one point as a first year student. Every person with expertise within the online business world (myself included) started off with ZERO knowledge.

That should be exciting to you knowing that you can enter absolutely ANY niche you want and become the expert and build a full time income doing so.

Immerse yourself into your niche. People will trust you if you can offer them help and you don't have to reach the "expert" status to have a full time business within a niche.

We will all be able to assist each other. Simply going through the courses means we all will retain something others may not. By forwarding a reference link or stating what we have as take away points, we can then be very helpful even if we are not where we ourselves think we might need to be to be helpful.

It can seem quite confusing when you first begin. However, many tutorials and posts have been created to help clarify, in addition to the training.

You can choose the training you want, depending on what you want to promote. If you want to create a niche website, you will go through the Online Entrepreneur Certification training (OEC); If you want to promote Wealthy Affiliate Program, you will need to go through Bootcamp training. You might want to check out the following link for more clarification:

I don't know if I should even be responding considering I am not done with my training and I just went through what you are.

I have found that I understand just fine I just doubt my self at times so there for it does't make any sense.

do you follow that??

Here is my suggestion,

If you don't know what the program is do the training part first then if you can get past it and understand it may be then it will help u decide whether to go affiliate for WA,

or you can to continue to what it is that you do now, Does that make sense???

My personal opinion is once you go through it , and just follow directions as its stated you will see immediately that everything

that your being taught you will start seeing the results of it, instantly, providing your doing it as said to.

I am not saying you are gonna be a millionaire but once you see that what is being said will happen as a result of following through with where he is leading you it will be that much easier to push forward. and the results will show instantly!!!

That's my word because as for my self as I stated earlier...

Had I just watched, read and followed direction and not add my 2 cents or jumped a ahead of myself I would have more than the one site I have up now,

Its okay not to know nothing, that is why you came here was to learn how to make money online in affiliate marketing or something to the affect of finding out how to get paid while home, side income??

That's exactly what your being taught!!! Take away the $ part briefly to completely grasp that concept. 👌✔👍✔. Now 👂then apply what you hear and put it in action. and you will 👀 the ?🍇🍎🍍🍌🍉🍊🍋🍒🍐🍓🍏🍅🍈🥝🥥 of your👨‍🌾?

Give yourself the chance to see what WA can do, i promise you wont regret it, just follow what Kyle tells you, you got this!!
Be Encouraged,

I have chosen this:

I help single Women (and a few good single men) who want to succeed at affiliate marketing.

Specifically: I want to help women and men who have never been married, don’t have children, who are in their mid to late thirties going into their forties.

They want to be Happily Single, Not be socially isolated, Become Financially Free, Live Life Fully Now, and Prepare for being Happily Married or establish a strong community of friends/family if they choose to stay single longer.

wow that just reminded me of a side hobby Facebook page I had back in 2016 for Disc Golf for Beginners. I had like 15,000 likes on it, and haven't done much with it in a while... I wasn't selling anything on it, and always wanted to, but you think I could target Disc Golf Beginners things? Maybe I already had a niche ready to go and didn't know it? Still, I want to do the single niche... but maybe I'll do a 180 switch and focus on Disc Golf for Beginners. What do you think? Can I do both? But one starting off might be easier - Disc Golf?

Yes!!! Thank you so much for your support. Yes, I'm well aware of this connection to the group as I am single in that niche, and so that's why I thought I'd go with it.

My niche is going up against corrupt banks .It's what I know . It has been trial and error. If I had listened to friends and relatives I would have lost MY HOME 5 years ago.I have found out who my true friends are. When you choose to do the rite thing in life , you will come up against resistance if you buck the system. Civil disobedience is proper, when the system tries to part you from your God given rights. The good people of this country seem to forget we the people have representatives ,not leaders, and it is our job to tell them how to represent us.Our system of governance is OURS, not the realm of a select elite .I will stand for your rights as well as mine, not because I like you, because that's what we are all mandated to do by God. This mandate is protected by our constitution and is abused by the corrupt elite.I am sick to death of bankers telling me I need to live within my means ,only to watch them destroy our financial system and get rewarded for their criminal behavior. What the people do not know Is that we live under a legal but unlawful monetary system. Most are also unaware that corrupt politicians have pledged the people to these corrupt bankers as collateral for their out of control spending. This is what is known as slavery. Slavery was not abolished in this country, in fact it was made all inclusive. You are the Human PROPERTY of the elite and you need to stop complying and submitting to their madness.I have stopped 6 foreclosure attempts by the bank in six years. If anyone is interested in the process by which you can stand up to the Banker bullies Then please let me know. I am happy to explain the steps I have taken up to this point as well as my future plans, and I plan to occupy MY HOME PEACEFULLY FOR AS LONG AS I LIVE ! Respectfully Michael

Corrupt banks are the leaders of the "free" world. Tower of Basal, Switzerland, and it's predecessor in Rome. History is the key to the Future. Hitler had financiers. So did Napoleon. So does America.

That's the glory of the free-enterprise system and the democratic process. We might not be truly free by the standards of God's law, but we have a form of legislated freedom that allows us to make a difference in people's lives, and we a hope for a King of kings who will come and conquer all the wicked who love to make merchandise of the souls of men.

Have you considered supporting the Libertarian party, Sales19? I would love to learn your process.

But in my mind, the more important goal would be to learn how to 'save' their money, or depending on the type of job they get they can invest in a 401K. I wish I had known that when I had graduated. I would also love to help people get out of debt. I had to do this myself and I did use a well-known program, but maybe I could still offer valuable content in a more generic way.

The audience that wants to "better" themselves instead of save all their money tends to be more inline with what WA is about and what we offer here (not to say we don't pique the interest of both).

So you have lots of great ideas there for the direction of your website (target audience), I would choose the one that resonates with you the most Michelle!

I took some time of to investigate some other forms of online business ventures. To listen to some of these online "Marketing Gurus". Just to be brought right back here.

This IS the best I've found out there. There is no other system, community, or program quite like this. I am extremely thrilled to be a part of something so awesome and to have the opportunity to share this opportunity with those like me looking for a way out of the rat race.

It's my goal to see all of you guys in Vegas!!! I'm looking to do 300 my first year out.

So... If any of you Rock Stars have any advice on how to accomplish this. Please share cause I am more that eager to learn.

There is lots of "noise" out there, and it tends to be about self acclaimed gurus selling their high ticket, low substance products/services. This has been consistent for the last 10 years.

We teach what works, we will continue to teach what works, and we provide you with the most elaborate and comprehensive platform in the world for creating a business online. It is only getting easier and easier to promote as time goes on and we continue to extend our service far beyond anything else in the industry.

We would love nothing more than to have you down in Vegas next year Carlos! My advice is go through bootcamp, work your tail off, and think "year" don't think "week" when you think success.

I am struggling to write the about me due to relevance.
As an ex director/Man Dir/Chairman of a manufacturing company, what has that got to do with online/affiliate marketing. Nothing.
So how does that background give me any credibility in affiliate mkt to attract my fans.
Any comments/advice welcome

Your background is relevant because it's part of who you are!

You can discuss why you took on learning new ways to develop a new stream of income.

You can appeal to others with similar backgrounds as well to take the fear out of doing something new and, possibly unfamiliar.

I was not a successful business woman when I started here. I was successful at helping other people reach their goals and I worked for their dream of freedom instead of mine!

Sure, I want to feel like I have revolutionary ideas at times but, the real truth is what I 'actually' have is a distinct voice and, my own unique experiences.

You may find, like I did (and, still do) that everything that's happened in my life has tied in and, can be tied into the work I'm doing for myself here.

For your particular work experience for example: are you happy to not go into an office every day now?

Do you think that your experience working on a team and helping your old business grow could inspire confidence to help people in the future here?

Someone believed in you enough to entrust you with their company. I will venture to say that you can entrust yourself with your own business as well!

I hope that may help get the wheels turning.

So I just pulled this out of your bio,
"I was in manufacturing for many years and built a business in the automotive industry, making lighting products. Built that to a £6 mill turnover employing some 34 people.
Then moved onto all sorts of jobs, from Debt collecting, door to door sales, was a lifeguard for a couple of years, delivered papers, Indian food. Basically anything to earn a crust."
Your past experiences each end up having something to do with marketing. You did door to door sales and delivered papers, that is marketing right there. Your background is one of the best because you have put in the footwork, you know what it is like to work hard. I look at your past as a very impressive foundation to this next step that you have decided to take. I feel like you have lost yourself a little bit. The only difference between when you were Chairman and now is the fact that you don't have to look over 34 employees anymore. You've got this!! Recently I was told to sit down and make a list of the 5 things that I am known for or my 5 greatest passions... That who you are, just put in writing. =)

I went into my site to view my content thus far and noticed that my "Privacy Policy" page has a comments section like a post would. When I first started creating the "Privacy Policy" page and was about to publish it I neglected to choose "page." I pressed Publish. Once I realized my mistake, I went into my back office and deleted the "Privacy Policy" page and started over this time making sure that I clicked on "page". Is there a way that I can check how that page is published? As a "page" or a "post"? Is there a way to change it and get rid of the "comments" section on that page? I also did not get a "duplicate content" message when I published it.

After following the steps in arranging my top menu and clicking refresh, I did see the top menu arranged properly at the top of the page, however upon clicking on the home tab, it took me to the first paragraph of my "About me" page with a "read more" option that took me to my "about me" page. Is that what I want or can I add content to the home page that is different than my "about me" page?

Hi Kyle;

Firstly thanks for another very helpful training on writing reviews following CIAO.

I have a question here;

Where can I find the current WA Ratings for Trainings, Support, Website Builder etc? (You have these rankings for 2017 in this training).

I would like to include the Overview & Ranking as part of my 2019 Wealthy Affiliate Review but am not sure where I can get these facts (current rankings) from.

I hope I am making sense here :)

Grace
Reply
Kyle Premium
You define these rankings based on your perspective, so there is no centralized database. You can use other companies in the industry as sort of a basis, but what you are going to find is that WA is the most thorough, comprehensive and advanced platform in the industry.

Rank according to your findings though, your research, not what my website is.

After you complete your review, if you want some feedback simply let me know and I will be happy to have a look for you here.

I am thinking about a niche toward helping moms and women in general that are at home and want to learn how to use the internet to build their own business maybe because they are unemployed or because they want to quit their job. Should I be more specific? and a question I haven't asked before does WA have a way to having the website in multiple languages? I speak Spanish an Italian and English and was thinking of broadening the audience.
Reply

Mom's Succeeding Online. Internet Business for Mom's. This could be the direction you can head.

I would focus on just one language, I recommend English because your audience is bigger, and so are the number of products you will be able to promote (and WA is English only at this point, so the transition to WA will be that much easier).

When I published my privacy policy, it came up with a comment section at the bottom of the page on my website. So I thought I had added it not as a page. Therefore, I thought I should trash the page while on the edit section. It did delete it from my page, but also will not allow me to republish it, as it says that I already published it still and says that I must restore the page if I want to edit it more. Can someone help?
Reply

Some themes allow for comments on pages. That is completely fine, that is just based on the theme that you choose and I wouldn't worry about this at all.

Just don't approve any comments that you get on your privacy policy page. No worries at all.

It sounds like you published it as a post, thus the comments. I did the same thing. Go back to site builder and make sure you create and modify the P Policy as a page and then when you publish and get inside WP, just trash the other page and make sure you check the no index and no follow boxes on the new one. LOL, you can do this as many times as needed til you get it right. So, there's really no mistake that can't be corrected.
Hope this helps,

Hi question. What exactly am I creating a website for? If I was pushing a product or niche. I understand. But since I am doing the bootcamp to promote WA.... I'm a little lost.

There are many directions that you can head and many ways in which you will be able to efficiently promote Wealthy Affiliate to different audiences.

Hi Anna,

I am also new here, but let me try and explain: The first rule: You need a website to make money.
Now Wealthy Affiliate will be the product that you promote. Anything that you promote, you would like to rank on the first page of Google so you you can gain traffic. This traffic will bring you sales.
You will start with a review of Wealthy Affiliate - around keywords people are searching for. But it is a broad topic which includes stuff like how to make money online, working from home and so forth. All of these need to link to your review of Wealthy Affiliate at the end of the day. The more quality content on your website, the more keywords you have that you can rank for and the more authority you get from Google.

For this you will need a website. Social media is an extension of this but not the main income source as a website will give you long lasting traffic. So you benefit from your hard work and gain passive income once you are up and running rather than a daily grind on social networks for short term traffic.

So you are learning how to rank on Google's first page and get in front of the competition while competing worldwide. Immensely valuable.

I hope this helps.

Regards,
John

I too know that there are many women out there like me that have gone through divorce, are on a very limited income or have been forced, due to health issues to retire from their job with no retirement. I was married, raising a child and self employed in the health care industry. I was never very good at promoting myself in health care due to the risk involved (long story). I taught fitness for years to help supplement my income. Long story short, after many years of teaching, I had to retire due to significant degeneration and pain in my body. Also went through a divorce 5+ years ago. Have been struggling financially ever since. To top it off I have no retirement just a ton of debt. I would like to target this group.

I have spent a good part of yesterday afternoon and this morning thinking about my target audience. I have decided that there are probably a lot of people 'out there' that are like me. So I've decided to reach out to them.

To bring you up to speed: I'm retired (so fixed income that's less than I'd like); I'll be 76 in the spring (so old, but in relatively good health and I believe I still have my wits about me); I'm totally not a 'techie' (I have trouble navigating around Facebook and Instagram, etc.); I'm determined to learn and overcome my technical limitations and develop a lucrative affiliate marketing business.

The segment of the population I want to reach out to are retirees, people approaching retirement and empty nesters-all of whom have or will soon have additional time on their hands and many of whom would like to generate extra income by operating their own businesses.

I think this is a niche I can be successful with if I can lead by example.

I have given some thought to my brand. Pondered many options including money tree (we'd all like one), cash cow, cookie jar, piggy bank, and a few more conventional names. Decided (for the moment anyway) that I kind of like: Apple Tree Affiliate. Apple has a successful, prosperous connotation about it (attributed in part to the corporate giant and to Apple records back in the Beatle days). It's also a household word: apple a day keeps the doctor away; apple pie, etc. Tree represents deep rooted longevity and strength. Together, Apple Tree yields a desirable recurring crop (similar to the recurring benefits of affiliate marketing). Just thoughts at the moment.

Any comments or advice would be greatly appreciated.

I just went through the Lesson 8 training on keywords, and when I searched on Jaaxy, some of the results I got confused me. For example, "work at home" came up with an Avg of 331922 and QSR 100 and "work at home jobs" came up with an Avg of 311740 and QSR 100. How can these keywords which are so popular and used on so many sites have such a low QSR?

The reality is everyone likes the idea of working from home. So you audience is going to be wide. I have a few articles here and there specific to an audience with disabilities. But I wouldn't build a whole site around it. Working at home is so appealing that you will capture various people including the ones you mentioned. Because chances are they will be searching work at home opportunities and doing research like reading reviews. So you're best bet is to focus on writing reviews because that's what led you here to WA by reading one of my work at home reviews. And that's what most of the work at home audience does. They happen upon one company claiming to have work at home and then the person will refine their search by doing a search for a review of that company. So reviews covers everyone. Again just think about yourself.

Reply

If you're picking the work at home niche because you think it will make money faster, that's the wrong reason. Any niche you pick will probably take months to a year before you see a dime. So you should stick with a niche you're really passionate about. Because it's easier to keep pushing forward during the rough times when you're working on something you truly care about.

After using first google and the Jaaxy platform, I find a lot of potential keywords and of all of them i have to select 5 , so far OK. Now where do I post them, and do I have to write contents of this five keywords and where do I post them? Please explain
Reply
Kyle Premium
Keywords are the premise of all of your content. Ideally you will be finding keywords with a lower competition (also known as QSR) because it means that you are going to be competition with less websites in Google when you go to create your content.

You want your keyword to meet the following criteria:

(1) Must be lower than 100 QSR initially, as you get more authority in search engines you can tackle more competitive search terms.
(2) Must get some traffic, I ideally aim for over 50 searches per month
(3) Must make grammatical sense

I recently created training on how to come up with great keywords here and this is a strategy I have always used to build out my website Arturo ... Once you have your keyword, you are going to create a page or a post on your website targeting that keyword. It should be within the following places in your content:

(1) Somewhere in the page/post title
(2) Somewhere within the first paragraph

And then write your content naturally and make sure it is engaging. People search "keywords" when they are looking for something so as you start getting ranked under these keywords, you are going to start to see traffic.

Once you have traffic...you have a ton of opportunity to generate revenue.

Hope this helps you out Arturo!

Hi Everyone!

Just a quick question: Before this lesson I had to do keyword research and get 5 keywords. How does this tie in with the WA review I am going to write and to rank for the article - should I incorporate my researched keywords in my review? Is the title to be researched too or just taken from popular search terms on products?

It doesn't say that I should incorporate my researched keywords but then I am a bit confused for which keywords I am supposed to rank - Is it all about the title then?

Thank you in advance.
John

Each page and post you create on your website is going to target ONE keyword.

Keywords are the premise of all of your content. Ideally you will be finding keywords with a lower competition (also known as QSR) because it means that you are going to be competition with less websites in Google when you go to create your content.

You want your keyword to meet the following criteria:

(1) Must be lower than 100 QSR initially, as you get more authority in search engines you can tackle more competitive search terms.
(2) Must get some traffic, I ideally aim for over 50 searches per month
(3) Must make grammatical sense

I recently created training on how to come up with great keywords here and this is a strategy I have always used to build out my website John ... Once you have your keyword, you are going to create a page or a post on your website targeting that keyword. It should be within the following places in your content:

(1) Somewhere in the page/post title
(2) Somewhere within the first paragraph

And then write your content naturally and make sure it is engaging. People search "keywords" when they are looking for something so as you start getting ranked under these keywords, you are going to start to see traffic.

Once you have traffic...you have a ton of opportunity to generate revenue.

Hope this helps you out John!

My problem is not much different than most people. I have no problem taking action, I am just overwhelmed with ideas and lack marketing knowledge. So if you all can help that classic "I got plenty of ideas, where do I start and get traffic" issue, I AM all ears. :-)

You learn a great deal of what you need to know by "doing". I would recommend that you just DO, if you make a mistake no problem at all. There aren't really any major mistakes that you can make and you can't achieve success without making mistakes first.

I have a question about widgets as I have just set up my custom menu, but when I came to add/manage widgets on my site I do not have any sidebars to manage this. How do I create sidebars to add my widgets onto? Hope this makes sense to whoever can answer this query. Many thanks.

This question is for Kyle, Carson, and everyone else who has some experience here. I'm obviously just getting started and I want to earn as much as I possibly can this first year. I've seen testimonials of people starting to earn after just a few months. However, if someone is going at it hard, as in at least 40 hours per week, what would you say is a realistic expectation for referrals and earning the first year? 300 referrals the first year would be incredible, but is it realistic? Right now I'm thinking I'd love to make $15,000 from the WA affiliate program. If I referred 150 Premium members by the end of the year with an average of $100 per referral, that would give me my $15,000. However, Kyle said in the video that the average tends to be a little higher than $100 per referral. So, I'm going to be hitting this hard and going for $15,000 from 150 referrals. Has anyone ever gotten 300 referrals their first year? Thanks! I'd love to make Vegas in January/February of 2020. I just want to make sure it's actually realistic. What do you think, Kyle and Carson? What does everyone else think? Thank you!
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, it is definitely higher than $100, moving closer to $150 per sale and as you start making sales within consistency, you are going to see a significant monthly payout of commissions (and they recur).

150 is possible, 1500 is possible. Just remember, there are 4 BILLION people out there that can benefit from the platform here at WA, it is just a matter of finding them.

FreeMan, it is totally possible, but it will take hard work on your part. In fact, $15,000 a month is possible with the affiliate program. that will be tough in one year, but after you get a ouple years down the line, it is totally in the realm of possibility.

Yes, thanks Chris. I was thinking $15,000 total by the end of this year. If I can get 150 Premium signups and they average closer to $150 as Kyle states above that would give me $22,500. I think it's an aggressive goal, but I'm willing to put in the work!

Do a back track. 150 referals, 12% conversion rate is 1250 sign ups a year, average 3,5 a day. That is fully realistic. Go for it!!

After watching the video and then the find 5 keywords I admit I was a little daunted. So I watched the video again and then started to play with Jaaxy. 36 keywords later I am impressed. With Jaaxy, not me. lol The amount of options for keywords I think has enabled me to be reasonably specific on the market I'm hoping to work with.

My chosen niche for this campaign is making money online for people with a disability and seniors or retirees looking for an opportunity.
As I have a physical disability and approaching 65 yrs of age, I can relate and learning to connect with both of these groups.

Any suggestions on how to maximise this campaign will be greatly appreciated.
Cheers

Kyle Premium
Yeah, it is amazing. Once you understand the research process and you have access to the right tools (like Jaaxy), you can literally uncover as many low competition keywords you need to keep you busy for a lifetime. :)

I do like your niche, but I would narrow it down to disability, seniors or retirees. Sure there will be some crossover, but in terms of branding I would recommend you narrow it down to just one.

Hi, after going through this training, I have come up with the following niche direction. A nay or yay would be greatly appreciated.

My chosen audience is 'passive income seekers' and that could be anyone looking for a passive income, stay at home moms like me included.

I then did a Keyword search using Jaaxy for "passive income seekers" and of the many keywords found in the search, I chose the keywords "online passive income" which had - Searches 160, Traffic 28, QSR 132.

Finally, I went to google and searched for "How to make online passive income" (that is putting my keywords in question form) and I got about 25 results.

This looks to me like most of the criteria for choosing my niche direction are met.

I am sharing how I used the training to find my niche direction with the aim of helping other as I progress.

Many thanks.

Hi all. I just watched the first video about the affiliate program and I am still a little confused about the commission structure.

1 - Do I only get paid for referals if I am a premium member myself?

2 - As I understood, if someone I referred does not switch to premium, I only get 1 dollar if he/she finishes setting up the account, is that correct?

3 - If someone switches to premium for, lets say, a year membership. I get commission for this year. What about next year? Do I still get commission even if that person decides NOT to renew his/her premium? Or I only get commission if a premium is renewed?



Thank you all and have a nice day.

RoseAnn1234 Premium
Hi, as a starter member you will only get a commission if your referral goes premium
As a premium member, you get $1 for each starter that goes through and sets up a profile etc. Plus you get paid at a higher rate, than starter, when your referral goes premium.
There are different levels of commission depending on whether the referral pays monthly, six monthly or annually. Every time your referral makes a payment (after a slight withholding period in case of chargebacks), you will get paid.
Wealthy Affiliate will pay you commissions for as long as your referral remains a premium member. This is one of the best affiliate programs around. There is no time cookie.
Once you become a premium member, the amounts increase and you will get paid as long as your referral remains a premium member AND you do. You can no longer return to starter member once you have accessed the balance of the training.

Hope this makes it clearer for you.

i am a home based travel agent who specialize in disney vacation but i also love the make money online niche, which direction you think is best? can i build a website that will help me make more money as travel agent or should i go with make money online?
Reply
DeRaj Premium
It's better to choose "travel agent specialize for Disney vacation" as there is less competition and that is specific niche than "make money online" niche. However, it also depends upon in which niche you have more idea. Let me make you clear.

Niche means the subject of your interest, in which you have some knowledge so that you can write several contents related to that niche. Actually, every niche is profitable, what matters is a number of contents you can write in that niche. So, instead of thinking which niche is profitable, think in which niche you can write many contents by targeting several different keywords, because more contents you can write, you gonna have more traffic to your website and then more conversions, sales or even a profit without selling anything or recruiting anyone, just from advertisements within your website by applying with services like Google Adsense. If you don't know what Google Adsense means, then you can click this link:- https://www.newsonlineincome.com/how-to-make-money-from-google-adsense/

So, any niche is a profitable niche for you if you have some ideas on that niche so that you can write several contents on that topic on your own as well as by doing research on Google. So, sure you can pick any niche and keep on making website exactly as guided by Wealthy Affiliate lessons by doing proper keywords research for each content.

So, keep on taking Wealthy Affiliate lessons by clicking “Training“ on the left-hand side menu of Wealthy Affiliate and after that by clicking “Online Entrepreneur Certification”. At the end of those lessons, there are some tasks which you need to complete. Move step by step from lesson 1 without skipping any lessons or tasks. I repeat, without skipping any lessons or tasks. If you move in that way, soon you will understand the system of Wealthy Affiliate and even will start to build your online business.

And remember, I'm always ready to help and support you. You can always feel free to ask me if you need any help from my side within Wealthy Affiliate. Even you can follow me and message me on my Facebook page if you need my urgent help. This is my Facebook page:- https://www.facebook.com/The.Suman.Roka/

After reading the Target Audiences Tutorial I chose two are three that looked interesting. I did some basic keyword research on them and came up with "New Career After 50" as an interesting audience with some big monthly search numbers and low QSR for various aspects of that concept. I think I'm going to tackle that group. Being retired for some time now (If you don't count my continuing, occasional work as a RE broker), I had the experience of being out of work at that age (which is why I went into real estate) and know first hand how difficult it is to find a new job.

Now the question is what to call my website. I've never been good at coming up names. Newcareeraffiliates.com just occurred to me. Anyone care to chime in with an opinion before I take the plunge?

I don't know what more to do aside from telling the truth(blogging). Ultimately I want to use page to generate money but i don't know how to do it with this particular niche i am at a standstill. What should I do??

I wanted to learn how to build my own website so that i can get locals informative of the unjust in our system and the no funding for programs needed as well as being able to make a side income to.

Can someone please give me some advice and point me in the right direction??

Hi Virginia,

As far as building out your site, you just need to be doing keyword research and creating good content based on those keywords. As per how the training is showing you.

As far as what to promote, this is a bit of a tough one. What I would think about is what do the people in your niche, that they would be willing to spend money on? Attorneys, courses, products (digital and physical), try to think about this.

If you can't come up with anything, then you can always run ads like Google Adsense to monetise your site. Not the most profitable way but if you have enough traffic this can still be profitable.

My family and I adopted 4 children out of foster care. My grown daughter adopted 2 children from foster care. I'm very passionate about the state that our country is in whereas so many children are being left parent-less because of drugs, economics, death etc.
Can you offer direction?

Sure, you could head in that direction with your niche. You likely want to head through the OEC training here versus bootcamp for this niche.

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. :)

Im a little stuck when it comes to niche.

niche idea 1
personally i have a passion for change. being involved in gangs for over 20 years ultimately being sentenced to a 25 years to life in prison (my case was overturned on appeal). It's been over 10 years. i have changed my life 3000 80%. as a result of practicing reiki, ho oponono, law of attraction, meditation and other modalities i have transformed my life. having these spiritual/mental tools i believe that sharing these methods and information is a part of me
i'm a proud father now, have owned multiple small business with success and am a reiki master.

second niche idea
my first successful business was as a personal trainer and gym owner. i loved being a positive influence while helping my clients transform there life and reach there fitness goal. so i have a passion for fitness and health

third niche idea
affiliate marketing, although i just started and haven't made a dime i have fallen in love with the concept and idea of reaching 1000's of people online and helping them attain what they want, need and love while being able to support my family..

so im not sure which to choose. i also thought about maybe combining them, -- fitness, self help/spirituality and making money online.

thoughts please

Hello and Welcome to WA!!! First and foremost its good to meet another like myself here in this community.

Funny thing, I was just about to go through and read a few profiles in search of like minded folks and here your post is the first one I see having not even started to browse yet.

I just made the same post as this one here you made, for real for real. Keeping it all the way real, I don't know how to even respond to this because, I myself, am clueless as to how to go about it as well.

I must say that its a trip that with all the different comments I have been getting on my post that someone else had my exact niche in mind and was also stuck on how to present it.

With hopes to share some wisdom and knowledge, as well as want to make a difference by helping others succeed, the whole time making some paper to be able to care for self and family. isn't it ironic?

This community is amazing, as well as owners and staff. They are on point and respond to all request quick. There are so many different types of peeps here who will actually help you in any way they can. This is the best place to be trying to do what you are.

Trust me when I say no other program is like this. Where else do u have access to thousands of people who have made a living off of this making anywhere between 6 and 7 figures monthly who will actually help you to get like them?? No where know of, until here.


Real talk, no BS either. You definitely stumbled upon a amazing thing.

Hey Bret,

After updating my site twice (that's over 440 posts) I'd say if you're serious about this, get your brand down. Meaning get your blogging style down in terms of your blog post style, Homepage, elements like opt-in banners you want to use to drive people to main product reviews (you can do that in Thrive), and things like that. These things take a bit of time and so I'd say keep your site looking nice and clean for now.

The focus is on the content. That is producing the best content you can and targeting all of it to your specific niche. Your blogging style may change, but you know the gist of how to style content.

So your main focus is content, but as you're doing this you want to be thinking of developing a FREE give away that you can use to bribe people into your email marketing system.

With thrive, you can create Post Templates for reviews or whatever. So that improves the efficiency of your writing and establishes your style/brand.

You can also create Banners as Symbols that you can add to ever post to drive someone to your main Review/Optin/Landing/Sales Pages. What's great about that is that as your banners change over time and need to be updated, you don't have to go through 400 posts to do it. It's just a banner update and the whole site is updated.

So you've got a Thrive theme, when you're ready for email marketing/advancing your site, that's an easy upgrade to their membership to get all the Bells & Whistles.

Hope that helps. OH, we just did a Thrive Membership Review if you want to check it out... https://learntogrowwealthonline.com/thrive-themes-membership-review/

I'm freaking in love with this product. It's amazing what you can do with it...

So I have "Rich Life Reviews" as my brand now, which was originally meant to be the larger niche of "Make Money Online" and "Personal Development" (which is what I personally like - but have struggled with a lot in the past).

I'm finding that I want to connect with people inclined to start into MLM, Network Marketing, and High Ticket programs - or buy all these tools recommended to them (like I was...) but instead show them that they would make the most of those programs with ACTUAL online marketing experience/training (traffic) like they would learn at Wealthy Affiliate.

I want to help people who have gone down the "MLM, Network Marketing, and High Ticket program, etc" routes to simply LEARN the skill of marketing themselves instead of relying on a 'product/recruiting' company to teach them marketing and how to do online business.

Does that sound like a good direction?

"To Help People Get 'Woke'" ... maybe that sounds a little vague, and maybe that's on-purpose (as 'getting "woke"' means different things as time goes on).

Or maybe I'm still trying to get MYSELF "Woke." Or maybe "what you think 'woke' is" is really just a mindless trance you're too happy to see, in which case 'waking' would be bad ... ?

I don`t know if what I am doing is right, but since I had decided to use affiliate for WA as my niche for my website, and obviously because I have never been an affiliate before, I am a little nervous about the credibility.
However, I know how much I have been struggling as a single mom and trying to have an online business to help me raise my daughter, and feel that affiliate marketing is very good for stay home moms, but because I don`t know how to actually write about it and sounding passionate about it makes me a little worried.
Anyway, I named my site Money Mine Online, as in becoming an affiliate marketer is a way to be mining money online...I thought it sounds tempting. What do you all think?
Thanks

Great first step, but keep in mind that content can be produced in many different forms. I usually recommend for beginners to do video reviews when starting out. It is a great way to get started for those who may not enjoy the process of writing, plus all you really need is your phones camera and a google drive account.

My direction is helping moms who find it hard to work or don't want to go to work but need the money and flexibility. I am in the same situation so I know what it is.

Brand name : Home Business for Moms.

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I cant look in the back office of my website. When i click the log in button my website goes to white dot design. That's what happens every time i try to get inside of my back office. It looks nothing like the website back office in kyles example in the lesson. This has stopped me from moving forward with the rest of the lessons. White dot designer costs money to the website builder. $24.95 per month.please help me get past this roadblock and hopefully you can tell me what im doing wrong. Thanks

I suggest creating a hosting support ticket here:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/support

You can also find this within the Websites menu under the "SiteSupport"(to the left). This is where you should go if you ever have loading issues with your website, email issues, plugin/theme issues, or if you accidentally do something that adversely impacts your website.

This support is 24/7 and upon submitting your ticket we will look into it right away Robert!

I want to support single moms. That follow the criteria of many of those key words. Self employment. freedom etc. I want to make a difference in their lives because they have it tough. I should know I was one of them. If I had Wealthy Affiliate back then my life would be so different now........

When I went to look for single mothers as my target niche in regards to making money online I couldn't get high enough target numbers. So I am a little stuck because the best words are making money online but without single mothers in that equation. Even Mothers just on own doesn't seem high in rank numbers. What am I missing here?

I am thinking that I would like to create a site directed to the unemployed and people in jobs they hate. I belong to the second group and very soon will belong to the first group so I think I can write with passion and in a way people will feel what I'm saying.

Hi guys, I've started to build a site around cooking and fitness where I plan to promote cooking books, appliances and pretty much most thing related to home cooking (with health and fitness in mind).

To promote WA should I have a complete separate website or would it work as part of my cooking website with a "here's how to take back control of your time so you can cook" kind of message?

Thank you guys for any inputs!

Yes, focus on just one niche per website. So if down the road you wanted to be involved in many different niches, you will want to create several different websites.

You will get there.

Hi Gael, yes you can also promote WA if niche that is not related to "make money online". However, the conversion is usually lower because the visitors are not going to your site with the intent of making money online.

I think this is great niche because i myself will follow it im always looking for new gadgets to make my cooking experience easier as well as new recipes being the foody that i am. but also to incorporate exercise with this it might actually give me some encouragement to get off my rear so to speak and be more active. Koodos to you!

My niche is "get out of debt on your own" or "get out on your own" or "how to move out of your parents house" all of them have awesome keywords with great and no competition. I thought about "Real Enterprise" to catch the Star Trek loving crowd. And my name happens to be Kirk. What do you think?

Getting out of debt is a good one, I'd stick with that Kirk.

My niche can be very broad. I kinda like that then I don't have to hone in on one style or cuisine. I want explore Kitchen equipment ,recipes, ingredients, how food is processed around the world, Sanitation sustainability of food in world's food supply. Do you have any suggestions, I'm very open to comments and training.
Reply
KimberleyR Premium
You have a broad list of topics above. Each one, really, could be a niche. I suggest you narrow down to start - maybe with kitchen equipment as it would be fairly easy to monetize. I only suggest this because it will be harder to get your website ranked as an authority site if you start too general. You can always add pages and subdomains later, or use the other topics as post ideas.

So, I'm just getting started with my WA site and I'm thinking about the first review. I'm thinking more along the lines of a blog that I update once or twice a week that follows my progress.

This video helped remove a lot of the fog from keyword research. The Jaxxy tool is fantastic! I was able to generate more than 5 potentially useful keywords that I will be able to develop content for.

I have already watched the video twice, and expect that I will repeat watching to have get a good foundation in keyword research and how to benefit from it as I continue to grow in affiliate marketing.

"Keyword must get SOME traffic. Ideally you will choose a keyword that gets over monthly searches." - missing number.

"There is a quick search feature available to you right within the Jaaxy menu. You simply click on the menu and it will hope up the submenu, with the search available right within it." - don't get what does "hope" mean here.

That is completely fine, your first article may take you longer to write. The thing that you are going to find is that you continue to create content, you will only become more and more proficient.

Nice work on your website thus far!

My interests are personal development, fitness, language.

Fitness and language are profitable industries which are hyper-competitive.

How much you earn matter, but more importantly is who you become.

I would like to become affiliate of a more narrow niche in personal development products/services.

I am considering become Brian Tracy/ T Harv Eker/other name brand affiliate.

Any other better ideas?

Sincerely,
Elaine

Your niche ideas are definitely viable directions for your niche. You need to choose one when starting out, what are you most passionate about?

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. :)

I am doing this as a partial fulfilment of my desire to go to school. I thought to myself since I am not ready to complete my doctoral degree, publishing things on my website might be fun. I am passionate about cancer research and the fight for a cure. I hope I can refine my thoughts.

I'm having trouble settling on one "Target Audience". In fact, I'm not so sure I want to limit my campaign to only one audience. So is the answer to have multiple sites, or can I use the same site and target multiple audiences.

I'm kind of stuck here and don't know how to go forward.

Hi Steve,
Target audience does not meant small group of people.
Example: if your audience are people who are looking to make money online, there are specific people you can be targeting:
- retirees who are looking to earn extra income
- college student who want to pay their study loan
- single moms / dads
- people who are 9-5 job and not earning enough
Hope you get the idea.

Joe:)

I do believe you can still open multiple sites that are linked or independent depending on what your goal and objective is. For example I am in the health care field. My niche is sickle cell anemia, cancer and workplace wellness. I hope to publish information for different people related to the above topics. And since I can have upto 50 sites through WA as a premium member I will try to utilize this chance. This is great.

Third time is the charm but in this case it’s the second time as the charm so, no, I will not be attending the 2019 Las Vegas Conference because I am starting from scratch. This year will be a do or die scenario for affiliate marketing for me this year. 2018 was a failed effort on my part. If I do not get it right this year. I will not return for 2020.

Lots to do!

Thank you. I’m currently on lesson 7 - Bootcamp. I did have a website through WordPress and not through the Wealthy Affiliate site manager and got caught up on a malware attack. Had to call Apple support for support. They took care of it by doing a backup and could not find any malware in the system. It only happened because I did not create through site content. Wealthy Affiliate is really the best way to go. A lesson learned and appreciated.

I would like to target those individuals who for whatever reason cannot have a regular full-time job. I think I would like my main focus to be people with chronic illnesses or disabilities that mean they can't get a regular income however it would also include stay-at home parents or those who have retired.

Excellent areas to hit. I myself have Bipolar, and bad social anxiety since my nervous breakdown plus bone spurs in my back and neck that are inoperable and cause severe nerve pinching when they cause flare-ups in the tissues and such around them. The big selling point for me was that it was a business I could not only do but with my time to study I could do well at. That's why I returned to it after my breakdown instead of to the workforce that helped get me there.

Sounds interesting. First time I have heard of that. Just make sure though that you will have a lot of materials to write revolving around that topic. A too narrow niche might bring you to a dead end soon insofar as providing content to your website.

I'll choose a wider branding such as "getting rich" or "make money online".
I guess if you are comfortable with a broader brand, and if you can provide content for it, it's nice to have a wide branding.

What is your option: a broad or narrow brand (like affiliate marketing)?

Hello Kyle & everyone else . . .

My 1st website will be my WA affiliate site. Is it okay in my About Me page to mention my affiliation with Wealthy Affiliate?

As a premium member, do I get an email address with my domain? If not, and I create and add a gmail address, can I change that address later when I get a domain linked email address?

Thanks . . .
