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 2017?

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 2018!

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 2017, Epic. Vegas 2018 Will Be Next Level

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

Will I be able to incorporate my links/banners onto one website as a website that advertises 'online shopping mall' if I want to strike an affiliate agreement with various major retailers ala J.C. Penney, Ebay, Amazon, Neimus Marcus, etc. ?

HELP! I am really struggling for the last 10 days. I keep seeing the word press training for making headlines and paragraphs. This is NOT WORKING for me. It will not let me make headlines and paragraphs. They are coming out all Headlines size or all Paragraph. What am I doing wring? It is probably the simplest thing but I have wasted so much time. My Content looks awful and unprofessional.

You could try using the regular Word Press builder which works much easier for me. I never have problems with H1 to H5 tags with it. The new site builder on WA didn't really do it for me.

The 'Site Content' creator available with WA does not transfer well to Wordpress (that's why I edit it in WP).

The spacing is off and the sizing is off as well. You can always just create content within your own WP dashboard.

i use the Site Content creator as a 1st draft. Then I edit in the images, sizes, and the rest within my WP dashboard once I 'publish' it.

I hope this helps.

Eventually Kyle will make a version that is more compliant, but it's better then nothing.

Feel free to seek the advise of others and come to your own thoughts and conclusions.

Have a good day.

Yes, just go through the site manager. Click login and it will take you to the Word Press sitebuilder/editor. It's much easier for me to use that plus it's bigger and easier on the eyes.

I'm not surprised you are having the same issue both in SiteContent and Wordpress because I think you are making the same mistake in each of them

make sure you make proper line breaks and separate your headings from your content, also notice when you've commanded a line to be a header already

I've had this happen on occasion but it was usually me not separating these things

ps it is not stupidity, those gremlins just get in on all of us at times and we get to learn how to handle them :)

but let's see if we can get this going for you, nothing as frustrating as losing time with this

I would just delete the welcome i am Joanne, and a space at the top, click on header 3, and then click on the space that you left at the top and it should work perfectly fine after that. I have some problems editing text as well, sometimes you just have to re-write the text again. Hope this helps, if not feel free to send me another message. :)

You have to do a HARD BREAK (press enter) or the formatting will be the same. Same thing happens within Wordpress or other editors, you need to backspace and then create a hard ENTER.

Site Manager can be found under the SiteRubix blue button. Congrats on your first achievement on building your website :) yes you can change your Theme. First you find another one, and install it. I have a bunch of Themes sitting in my dashboard that I can use if I want to. It's best to do a Theme change before you have made it large (like mine).

The direction I am going to be choosing for my business is:

"Helping People Who Wanna Quit Their Job"

I want to help people who hate their jobs, to find the needed suitable turning point in their life, so that they can spend it with their family. I will be the stepping stone for them to move forward and take the leap.

The name of my brand:

SaaZ Company (I actually chose this because I already bought a domain with this name so I think somehow I have to make it works right?)

choosing my brand for promoting the WA brand is a tough one. I mean promoting the dream you see all over online for affiliate marketing is "quit your job and travel & live your dreams!" but that one is so over done I would think.

how about promoting my own dream:
"make an extra line of income to help come up with a down payment to buy your first house!! "

haha hey, it's a funny one, but I would be passionate about promoting it as it falls in line with my goals. Maybe it would be targeting working middle-class families who don't have enough hours or time to take on an extra job but can put some hours in online.

Being a Baby Boomer that didn't plan well, I have chosen that as my target audience. So my hope is to create interest around earning extra income to be able actually retire and to enjoy your retirement. Maybe using something around Your Plan B or Back up plan in my domain name.

The best way I can answer this is to do what you're capable of to the best of your ability and try to improve with each post or review. Stick with the program and try not to get ahead of it or ahead of yourself.

i encourage you to keep searching for "your niche" remember you can choose a product you have zero knowledge of and do research and become an expert in it.. i know one affiliate who made a 4 page website about adjustable dumbells and it did good. ...another thing find passion in the work and in the research, there maybe a time we are not passionate about the product which is cool, but you can promote something that helps solve someone's problem... focus on small goals, small niche website and crush it!

you get credit by using your own links, when people click on your links they can be tracked and traced to you specifically

Laundry still needs to be done, meals made, animals fed and cared for, house sorted out, there is a never ending list!

Hello. Seeking advice.
I am a relatively new affiliate and I am about to create my first website. Going through the early Affiliate Bootcamp lessons.
I would like to get opinions on 4 things I have chosen:
1. Niche: Providing information to people who want to know what the best online jobs are.
2. Brand: Top 10 Online Jobs
3. Website Title: Top 10 Online Jobs
4. Domain Name: top10onlinejobs.com (I have this domain and also toptenonlinejobs.com)

Your advice will be appreciated! Thanks,
aschloesser
Reply
SeanGreentre Premium
I think it's a great niche. The traffic potential looks really good and the competition is relatively low. My thoughts on which domain to use would be that I'd opt for the toptenonlinejobs.com for no other reason than I personally think that search engines preferred numbers spelt out. But that's my personal opinion. I have no hard evidence to back this up. :-) But on the whole, I'd say you have a great niche there. Go for it. I looks forward to hearing about your success going forward.

If these don't work you can ask Kyle to look at it.

Hmm that is super strange. I would try maybe copying it. Reloading the page to start over and then pasting it and see if that works. If not then maybe it can be because it might be similar to your about me page on your wealthy affiliate account. That can mess with it. If that doesn't work try contacting carson or kyle and they should be able to help you/fix if for you. :)

I need some help refining the direction of my business.

I would like my core direction to be something along the lines of helping people that are having a midlife crisis or wanting to change jobs after the age of 35 and up to know that it is possible and that I can show them a way to do it with affiliate marketing.

This is of course exactly what I am doing myself, so I am no expert, but I'm sure there will be plenty of people that will identify with my journey and would want to do the same.

I want my website to be a source of encouragement and hope, backed up by facts and proof that it's possible to change your life.

I guess that is a lot like the WA site :) but obviously i will put my own personal story in it.

What do you guys think?

That sounds great. Especially now with everything that's going on. If you could get people's stories that have had lots of adversities in their life & what they have done to turn things around that would be one way of encouragement for your website.
Then they'res people that have had more than their share of adversities in their life, those are usually some interesting stories as well. If you go that direction & need someone for a starter don't hesitate to ask.
You have a great idea for a website. I wish you all the very best.

Your website does look great. There are a few punctuation issue's, I learned a long time ago that people have more trust in a website if it has an email address that isn't with a free account like gmail, or live, or hotmail. I put in the link below that explains about the email specifics.
The punctuation is commas mostly & a couple of words that should be put together.
If you go to:

https://docs.google.com

copy & paste all the wording from your website it will show you about the punctuation & what words should be together. I hope I didn't over step here. I want everyone to succeed. Punctuation & misspelled words drive me nuts.

Hope this helps.
Thank you.

Now I love WA and the training is incredible, but I don’t get how I should and can write a review on this as it’s not really my niche? Shouldn’t I rather be writing product reviews on camera gear for example? I also don’t quite get how I can get paid! Is it through referring to the WA page or ads or both?
Thanks for your awesome support!
You are a caring community,
Chris

Hey Chris!
Remember the bootcamp here is really geared more towards promoting WA. So, it doesn't fit into your Niche. You could always have an ad on the side if you wanted. I suggest you Finish the certification course first if you haven't already. That is geared more towards your "own" niche as opposed to bootcamp. Yes the bootcamp trainig does address building your site too. But the certification course will make more sense for your niche.

If you're into photography, focus primarily on that. Then at the bottom of each page, have a PS that says something like 'if you want to turn your passions into profit and build a website that selks, get started free here'

I am in Ohio and of course big colleges and sublet colleges. I would like to target these kids that may have a like wise mind set of Make money while earning your degree. The other is Fast food workers looking for a full time wage. Probably gonna refine a bit in keywords.

Ok, so I have tried a lot of things that haven't worked, including affiliate sites. I just need to see that something is going to work and bring in some $$. Should I start with the Bootcamp and promote WA as the first thing I do and then eventually get into promoting another niche down the road?

you need to master the training and see where you were going wrong, whatever niche you choose - there are two courses here for you to choose and two free websites, only pursue a niche you are interested in as you need to commit time to writing content and research if you don't know that niche well...

Hi Doug,

I highly suggest you start with the pug niche you spoke about because first you LOVE it and second is way less competitive than promoting WA (make money online niche).

The key to any niche working is using the right keywords that will bring in the traffic for your site. This is why many people fail at blogging (including myself before) because they don't know how to write and what keywords to use.

The training dives into great details about how to use FIND these keywords, how to use these keywords, etc.

Either niche you choose, remember you'll be writing a LOT about it as Mary mentioned, so you should really like the niche you pick.

I hope this will help you decide.

Thank you for the training, it seems so easy, so very easy.

But how about me, as I said before, I'm not so creative with words, does it need me to write a 1000 something words to attract people or what should I do?
Please help me, I'm trying to be creative and it seems the more I try the more my brain becomes blank.

I really wish to say out my ownriviews

I've been moving along quite well tonight then I hit a roadblock with the WA review. What the heck. I am loving what I am learning and the direction I am going with my site, but have no clue how to go about writing a review that is going to attract people and get them to want to join WA. Anyone have any thoughts on how I can proceed?

Writing a WA review does not have to be a comparison with another program. Just write about and list the positive aspects of WA, and why joining is a smart move for anyone looking to start an online business.
Reply
MozMary Premium
you already started your WA review with this:
"I've been moving along quite well ... I am loving what I am learning and the direction I am going with my site"

that is an excellent review by someone new to the platform and new to the internet marketing world - but it needs to be longer :)

see how you are telling people so many things already!

I am moving right along in the training. Extremely intense. So much information to digest and so much work to do. I had asked a question earlier concerning the review of WA and the response I received put me in check. Let me say I re-accessed my question and realized that I have to trust the lessons and not get ahead of my self.
With so much information on the sight, you could as easily go through the list of what is offered in the column on the left and break a bit of each category down as a review. Talk to a few people who have been in it for a while - maybe even Kyle and/or Carson and see if some will give you a personal view of their experience (in a nut shell).
My new problem in doing the review is now sorting through the mountains of available tools, guidance and support to condense it down to a review.
PS
Thank you Kyle for the quick response to my question.

I have watched the certification lessons (currently on lesson 3 of course 4) and now on phase 2 lesson 1 of affiliate bootcamp. Helps to tie it all together. I now have two sites active and that is where I am stopping for the time being. Once I have refined them to a point where I am getting traffic, and hopefully an income, I will rest a while, gathering information on my next venture..

I have given due deliberation over my direction in which to launch my niche website. While reflecting over my 38-year career, it had occurred to me that no employer would ever care about the well being of my family and of myself, and what quality of life that I might have with them, equal to, or more than what I personally care about such matters. Over the course of my career, while providing for my family, and often greatly struggling to do so, I had to sacrifice my personal freedom, happiness, ambitions and most importantly, my time to be with my family. Although, working for someone else provide an income, it often resulted in gross unfair treatment and required my absence from my family. I completely missed the majority of my children's developmental and formative years. Those lost years I will never get back. While under the employment of others, they had more control over my life than I had. They determined my quality of life, or the lack thereof. They determined my income and thereby what luxuries, if any at all, that I and my family could afford. I had to listen while they often boasted about their extravagant vacations and plans for future works travels. All the while, my family and I haven't had a vacation since 2000 because we simply couldn't afford it. Most recently, for the past three years, my current position has required me to be "on call", 24/7, with NO scheduled days off, and NO vacation. My current employment contract expires in February 2018 and at 58 years of age I have decided to take complete control over what remains of my life and determine my own destiny. My DESIRE to be SELF EMPLOYED is now stronger than ever. And this, my dear friends is my direction. Please, let me know what you think. You suggestions are welcome.

that is why most of us are here Chuck :) I recently retired from a home business after 23 years and I am ALL IN here in the WA community. I have had had numerous set backs with my website, it's been unverifyed twice, meaning Google became 'blind' to my website. I am back to square one after verifying it for the 3rd time. I was getting very discouraged after putting so much work into my site and I admit, depressed. Recently I finished reading a really good book by a Canadian author , after finishing her book, it took 10 years to get anyone to publish it. She won a literary award for that first book and has gone on to write 12 more in a series. I realized yesterday that compared to her struggles, mine are minuscule. I am more determined today that I have been in a few months.

From this lesson I now realize that perhaps instead of producing 7 websites with 7 different niche markets it may have been better to have just one and continue to add new content to that one.

I agree with you Freisia. I'm a re-tread here at WA. My first time through I had so many ideas and tried to turn them all into websites, although I tried to focus on two.

The bottom line was I pretty much got nowhere with any of them.

This time around I'm going to focus only on one. When I get it off the ground, I will think about other ideas.

I feeI like most of the niche refining happens with the article keywords. I guess the help I need is clarification regarding lower versus uppercase? The keyword tool does not have consistent capitalization of words which is reflective of the way different people type in their search terms. I know capitalization is not an issue within URLs but is capitalization important within a post's title heading? Will exact matches to the way keywords are capitalized in the tool render a higher indexing of the website post?

Hey guys, I'm looking for opinions....
Just started the affiliate bootcamp and trying to find a cool domain name to promote WA and other associated opportunities.
Other courses I have done in the past told me to use my name as I'm branding me but I'm worried people will spell it wrong as many miss the a out of Meadowcroft.
Anyway, I see that many people don't use their name and just have a cool, relevant domain name.
I'm a nurse and I'm so over shift work, as many of my colleagues are, along with other shift workers no doubt.
I have found two available domain names & would appreciate your thoughts
lovetoprofit.com
escapeshiftwork.com

Hi everyone,
I'm a little confused. It suggests here to make the About Me page a post so that you can get comments. However, pages can accept comments too - just a tick of a tick box under 'Quick edit'. And surely the About Me page is better as a page than a post? I'm happy to be shot down here and would value others' thoughts on this.
Thanks,
Sean

You can create it as either a page or a post, they are the exact same thing essentially if you can allow for comments on pages within your theme (some don't allow for it).

The great thing about hosts as you start building out your website is they go to your blog roll, which makes your website look active and at least a quicker indexing within Google/Bing/Yahoo.

Question? I want to do some type of affiliate marketing in the skincare and makeup area. If I already sell for a MLM or social marketer business, will I need to quit that business before doing the affiliate marketing for that niche? Just trying to make sure I am not being unethical or breaking any rules.
Reply
bobrseno Premium
I'm a network marketer and my plan is to drive traffic to my NW biz. I won't promote any competing products in any other affiliate scenario as that would be counter productive.
There's nothing unethical about developing multiple sources of income. No need to quit one to do the other.
Some NW companies restrict involvement in other NW companies if your interested in "Ambassador" type levels and some may restrict outside involvement altogether. Check with your company policies. If you ask your upline, their answer will be biased because they will want you focused on one thing so keep that in mind.
Hope my answer helps you.

That's the idea. The certification course is to teach you how to develop your own niche. Bootcamp is designed to lead you through the "make-money-online" niche.

Okay, thought so. There, in my other site that I built in my certification (it's still being built), we were taught how to sign up affiliate programs and get the affiliate links for embedding them in my site. Here, in this "make-money-online" niche, will I be taught all that too (adding WA banners, links, etc.)?

ok well this is the training phase so don't feel under pressure, you can try one thing and change directions, remember you've got two free sites

so when you say your brand, that is you, your voice and you don't have to choose an own domain name at this point, work on the free sites till you get a feel for things

and when you mention redefining your direction, again this will become clearer as you move along, so simply don't commit at this point, take the one you have in mind go with that and you work through the training and then change it when you know what you want - when you become more clear, once you start building out content on your website things really will become more clear

if by direction you meant maybe a different niche than WA bootcamp then remember to look at the Online Entrepreneur course that's the green button in the left menu

Like MozMary said, don't pressure yourself now.

A brand, is basically what others say about you when you are not around, so what is the message you want to get across to your site visitors?

Everybody that I know wants to make money online. So, what is the chance that you are talking about, maybe you have a unique point of view, and you should use that as your brand message. And what is "Having Less"? Elaborate on that and be as detailed as possible, maybe you can find your brand message if you drill in the details.

I fully agree with Mozmary. I was under extreme pressure for first 30 days to select a niche. I think it happens with all beginners. Then I chose to jump for Bootcamp but had the same issue.

Maybe my current website may turn out to be Brand for me. Waiting to learn entire course first.

Thanks for the clear walkthrough and guidance to this crucial process.

My brand / niche so far:
„Honest Online Business“

Target group:
People while or shortly after experiencing a change in their professional life, have already heard of Online Marketing opportunities, but unfortunately also of the big amount of scam and what I call „ego-Marketing“, and furthermore miss the time, money, ambition and a clear way forward to give their life a fascinating new direction of a kind which they have been looking for...

Would be glad to get some opinions from the community! ;-)

CCRider77 Premium
This niche is too broad and may not give you the success you want.

I think the target group should be People over age 40 who need money for retirement.

Here's why:
1) The 1st third of baby boomers are retired (drawing on SS, Pensions, etc)
2) 2nd third is in the process of retiring.
3) the last third (26 + million people) have less then 20 years to go.

The 1st group will be fine on SS, Pension, etc
The 2nd group will have to find additional means of income 401 k, Roth IRA, IRA as the SS and Pensions begin to buckle under the stress of an additional 35-45 + million people.

The 3rd group has no future with SS (79% benefits payout starting in 2028) SSDI (79% payout in 2022) Medicare (79% payout in 2020)

No future with Pensions (companies demanding 'buy outs' or terminating benefits after a certain year).

No future with IRAs, 401ks, due to 2007-2010 crash. The market is gearing up for another crash! (From 6,200 in 2009 to over 22,000 in 2017 Crash Coming!)

These people search DAILY for answers to retirement problems.

Since they are 15+ years away that is enough time for the 'sites' the generate a 'full time income' that they can use to supplement when everything else is gone.

I have a site that nets me $1000s a month based on this very fact. I explain to them that the money will not come in 6 months or a year but by the time 'retirement is on their mind' (5-9 years) they will have a steady income.

Just my opinion feel free to come to you own thoughts and conclusions regarding this.

Have a good day.
