Welcome to the Affiliate Bootcamp!

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

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

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

Who Am I & Why Do I Care?

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

That is my absolute focus with you. Success.

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

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

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

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

The WA Affiliate Program, It's Awesome!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

Your Potential & Commission Structure.

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

Invites: They Join WA for Free

STARTER Member Commissions:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Task 1: Add Your Affiliate Goals!

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

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

Add your goals here within the following thread.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

DISCUSSION: Vegas 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.

Ok. I need help. I am at the beginning of learning in the affiliate bootcamp. However, I am part of several Facebook groups and in one group right now - they are discussing websites and seo and I want to have folks contact me directly so I can refer them to wealthy affiliate. My question is this - what is the easiest way to directly send someone a banner with my coding attached to it? Email? Can I send via Facebook direct messenger? I am not sure how to use the banners yet. Or should I simply send them my link? If so, how do I see my exact link?

you don't need to send a banner, get familiar with where your affiliate links are here and when you send one it will pull an image

however make sure the facebook group you are in allows you to post your links, some do and some don't, and if they don't then send them to your website or facebook

I want my niche to be individuals who are planning for an independent stream of income for retirement or who are in retirement now. I am 5 years from retirement, and the possibility of developing another stream of income is what drew me to WA in the first place.

Any feedback on this niche or whether I need to refine it further would be appreciated!

Looking for tips to include in an initial review of Wealthy Affiliate, as I've only been using the website for less than a week.

To write a unique review about WA will not be that easy for me as well as I'm stuck there too. I've checked out the review websites set by our WA bros and sis here and their review content is awesome. I will consider hiring a writer to do the content writing for me if I'm unable to do so.

Well.. Just doing as told and posting something here. :) And choosing my direction is making me dizzy. There is so much more to affiliating, Wait! Your "brand" is basically who is going to be your target audience? My target audience is going to be those like me! I'm an expert at that! I'll tell you what portion of the target audience I fit in some other time. I'll keep learning for now.

Thank you all!!! And one question. First I was spinning because of all the different targets and sub-targets. How can you pick one.

I assume you don't have to (and probably shouldn't?) stick with just one once you get rolling. Yes?

Thank you very much for your reply. I have the same problem because my Theme supports only one menu. I can create many menus but I can use only one. I am sorry. The solution which I sent you earlier I received from one of the WA members. May be his theme supports a few menus. So, at that case his advice would be helpful. I`ll send the question again.

Ok I had a good domain that I had been sitting on for years. Now that I have made the commitment to work within Wealthy Affiliate I am working on building out the site. It will be an affiliate site promoting Wealthy Affiliate. http://makemoneywithpc.com I have built sites in the past however I seem to not finish them lol. 2018 brings a new year and I also am committed to finishing things as that seems to be a big issue with myself. Jumping from one thing to another.

I hope to build multiple sites this year but I am going to just focus on this one for the next week and get it built out completely.

I really like the site content aspect as my grammar and spelling are not very good. So this should be a big help in content creation for me.

Looking forward to helping out as I do have a lot of experience just not much success. It is time I focus and stay the course.

After this first site I am going after my passion and will build a site around basketball.

This is my first time using doing something like this. At first I was frustrated because I did not know what I was doing, but the get started first 10 courses helped me understand how affiliate programs work and gave me confidence after building my first website. I'm still not sure if can make money through advertising for Amazon since am a beginner, so I'm gonna start utilizing the affiliate bootcamp and make money off of that. I'm hoping to reach at least 50 referrals for my first time.

And I would love to make it to Vegas in 2019 and can't wait until this becomes my reality!

Top Reasons People Quit Their Jobs

Top Reasons People Quit Their Jobs
Please listen very carefully because Quitting your job can make you money over a million dollars passively.

Welcome to the Truthful Article of the Internet world today.

Faithfully and confident, according to my ideology there are many ways ahead to any Wishful Betterment of the most applied, prepossessing and accomplishable philosophy.

Types of Jobs
There are so many types of jobs. It may be a govt. services, service industry, private financial institutions, human resources, finances, sales, military, medical fields, astrologists, nutritionists, archaeologists, architects, engineers, technologists, clerks, secretaries, scientists, managers, shopkeepers, wholesalers, broker, drivers or an employee at Mcdonalds.

One philosopher, Jim Rohn said
“Profit is better than wages, wages can make you a living but profit makes you a fortune”
Some Job Quitting Reasons
There are unlimited reasons to name why most peoples quit or unsatisfied with their job.

Some reasons are

working longer hours
no job security
negligible rewards
overtime
illegally withheld
9 to 5 schedules
a bad and weak source of income
corruption environment
excessively complicated administrative procedure (bureaucracy)
negative connotations
inefficient
convoluted or too inflexible to individuals
favoritism
threat to individual freedom
rule-based
rational control
political elected career officials
opprobrious connotation
nature of supervision
illegitimate private gain
endemic corruption
bribery
organized crime
etc.
My Doctrine for You
Advising someone not to quit the job is a terrible advice but winners quit every time. Instead of constant redoing better rethink, review or revolve and quit. Must be the time to start something new and quit up completely. We must find our inner determination to keep going.

There are a couple of hundred ways in this social media world to get unlimited interaction with the rest of this material world.

In this era of Internet Industry, there’s a lot going on inside as it is the most comprehensive platform of building the most respectable Profession at a very negligible investment of at least only one dollar per day. So, it also relativity easy and affordable.

Here’s How We will do?
There are lots of opportunities you can do about your personal financial growth. The taking on financial risks in the hope of profit is about uncertainty and planning to flourish in any financial economic situation.

It’s easier to finish the run than it was to start it in the first place. In other words Habits or decisions and daily action to perform daily tasks becomes a ritual to fulfillment. Somewhere there’s hard work , there is no talent.

Passionate people willing to post about their experiences and profession in life in an open platform Internet.

Nowadays gadget like laptop or smart phones and big platforms like siterubix and wordpress have come up with simpler mechanisms that easily adapt a user without any technical ability and have become a trend or a legitimate hobby in this Internet Industry.

Here is where We Get Started after We quit our Job

Okay, I have my brand all figured out, as well as my direction. Time to go to the next step...I want to help students earn income while in college. So my focus will be on them and they will be my theme. WA is a great source to assist students with some extra time on their hands. Heck, perhaps when they complete their degrees, the will be making enough money with WA, that they can actually take an occupation that they really enjoy and not stress on the pay as much.

Hey everyone! I have been going through Bootcamp and I wanted to bounce an idea off of you. If you would let me know what you think or give me any suggestions, that would be fantastic!

I am passionate about self-improvement. I believe that it is absolutely necessary to improve myself constantly in many areas if I want to be a successful, fulfilled, and useful person. In doing this, life becomes more difficult but ultimately more worthwhile (see Theodore Roosevelt's speech on the Strenuous Life on YouTube, as I can't link to it here). There are many, many websites and programs online that focus on helping people improve themselves in one area or another, some of which I have visited frequently or signed up for. However, I have never seen a website that provides an all-in-one "directory" of resources for learning to improve oneself (not to necessarily say that one doesn't exist).

I could provide a platform where people could find programs and websites that would help them based on their interests and needs, and link to those websites and products. Many of the ones I can think of just off the top of my head have affiliate programs (including Wealthy Affiliate!), so this seems like an opportunity to support things I am passionate about.

I suspect that there are enough people interested in this kind of pursuit that I could find a niche in it. I would mostly be focused on men-specific improvement (because that is where I have the greatest experience and interest), but content for women would not be out of the question. One potential name I thought up is the Directory of Difficult: Self-Improvement for the Meek Modern Man.

Thanks for reading, and for all of your thoughts!

Wilson

mchspeed Premium
Very creative and inspirational Wilson. Your theme is very positive and it could be a one stop shop to begin an even bigger adventure into the world of self improvement. As a man, I would like to have a place to go to perhaps deal with improving my personable skills with co-workers. It seems to be a pretty broad area nonetheless. Is there an area that you would focus on in particular? Perhaps since you mentioned self improvement and you mentioned affiliate programs, perhaps you could narrow it down to "self financial improvement" for your visitors.
Reply
EOPolini Premium
Hey Wilson, I think the idea is great, especially if you target what you haven't found elsewhere. As far as the name, I would brainstorm some more and perhaps base it on keywords; I also think shorter is better. Lastly, I believe you would benefit more from the Entrepreneur Certification course (green button) with your niche. Cheers!
Reply
WilsonHidy Premium
Thanks for the feedback! I would definitely like to offer resources for development of social/personable skills. Financial education would certainly be one area of focus, because many people need and want it. However, I was thinking of not focusing on any one area in particular because I want to be able to break it up into categories. For example, there could be tabs at the top linking to, "Social Skills", "Finance and Business", "Fitness and Health", "Music", and other areas. After clicking on, say, the "Fitness and Health" tab, visitors could be brought to a page with sub-categories like "Nutrition", "Workout Programs", "News", and so on. If they selected "Workout Programs" they could be given several different options like Athlean-X, Science-Based Six Pack, and Starting Strength and given a brief description, recommendation, and link to their info, products, and merchandise. I really appreciate your input!

Hello,

I created my first website on a domain I purchased through the platform. The thing is, when I try to enable the SSL it starts loading and at the last moment before it is completed it stops and says "Oops, We ran into an unexpected issue while attempting to perform this request". I tried many times but the same result. Anyone knows why this is happening, or is it something that can be avoided if I try later after few hours?

I appreciate the help!

Well I have had a domain that I have been sitting on a long time and it has good keywords in it so I am going to build around that domain. It is pretty generic around making money so it will leave a lot to dive into. I haven't fully defined the audience but I will work on what topics will be discussed and hopefully that will help define the audience a bit better.

Excellent, sounds like a winner. A generic, brandable domain is perfectly fine. It is the content that will be relevant and how you position your website that will define your overall "theme" and target audience.

As I got older, I fell in love with photography and art. I tend to be very good at visual learning and reading comprehension. Being an online affiliate really lets me flex and practice my writing. Funny, how life though rarely a direct path leads us to our desires.

I was just wondering this: how important would it be to choose a website/brand/domain name that is ALSO an attractive keyword.

Is there harm in choosing a website name that isn't, in of itself, regularly searched? Or is it just as good to have an obscure but catchy name, with the posts speaking for themselves?

I would appreciate any advice.

Domain name is not as important as the content inside of the site however it is good policy in keeping your Domain name relatable to the content of the site

OK I find myself in a little challenge. My direction is towards minimum wage earners because my country has a cashflow problem at the moment. But I could also apply it to pensioners and people looking to better themselves. So I am not yet cleatr on exactly how to go forward.

Minimum wage workers are ok if they have time for making a website and the money to pay for a computer, internet, and the WA program.
I would probably prefer pensioners.

Actually today I was considering a website called Affiliate Pensioners and yes I am leaning more and more to pensioners.
But let me explain a bit about the minimum wagers. My country is about 90% literate, many of the minimum wagers have college and university degrees and have cell phones and tablets. Many are in the jobs they are in as stepping stone. (we have people who graduate from med school working KFC and Subway. So I was looking at it in the context of my own country.

I just started affiliate bootcamp. I'm currently in phase 1, lesson 9. one of the task is to write a WA review. Following the training, I have created a new website (I have another website created through certification courses) that will be the vehicle to promote WA but as I follow the bootcamp phase 1 training, its only content is the About Me post and Privacy Policy page. I have no other posts yet. Does this mean that the WA review will be my very 1st post?

Ok, I know who my target audience is but I have no idea how to create 'my brand' from it. I want to help people who cannot work a regular job due to circumstance or disability. I currently fit into both categories: a) single parent to a severely autistic child and b) recently diagnosed with MCS/TILT due to prolonged exposure to toxic mold. How do I create a brand from that? Any guidance on this would be much appreciated.

Thank you, Todd. I just read the tutorial you suggested and watched Jays WAbinar on branding. Both were very helpful and helped me to realize that it's not the branding that's tripping me up. The problem is that I don't know how to incorporate any of my niches into a site whose primary purpose is to help people become financially self-sufficient by introducing them to the wonderful world of WA. To me, a site designed to promote WA would logically offer copious amounts of knowledge related to website design such as the in's and out's of word press or explaining SEO etc. or anything related to creating an online business... none of which I know anything about, yet. My expertise is in raising children with Autism, the devastating effects of toxic mold, diet/nutrition, and hydroponic gardening. So how do I promote WA through a niche that has nothing to do with building a business or website design?

Maybe you do not promote Wealthy Affiliate. Many people feel this need when they’re trying to figure out their niche. I think you need to explore more time on your niche and continue with the online entrepreneurial course. Don’t jump into Boot Camp unless your niche is affiliate marketing or online business.

I don't know what is a reasonable goal for me. I am seventeen without a lot of disposable income, but I am interested in affiliate marketing and this seems like a great place to learn how to do it. I don't plan on going to Vegas or anything like that this year, but I am excited to start learning and generating income!

Some of my interests are fitness, music, and learning from any source I can. Would you recommend any of these for a potential niche?

OK, so I started last summer and am deciding to get back at it....I know, finally! In the meantime, I started another business with my husband making bbq and started another website branding our new business. It's been a slow start up for both of these websites, and although I want to keep up with the business website, I decided to get back to the bootcamp to learn a little more about the affiliate part and making money. My website targets college students and is called studentsneedingmoney.com I'm happy with that name and I have 6 kids in my house who are in that category - they also teach this old lady a lot about what is relevant with teenagers nowadays (like snapchat and instagram and "vlogging"), although I'm kind of a slow learner with those things; hopefully it will get easier as I get rolling!

I really like it and there are certainly millions of students in the US alone that would benefit from WA and the platform here. I like many students, started out in the online world while I was in school.

I look forward to seeing your website evolve as we move through 2018. :)

I am new to WA and I have limited computer skills, I have been trying to earn money on the internet for a few years but with limited knowledge have only managed to find sites that promise all and then fall to pieces, scams. So I thought the direction I am going to choose is Helping Struggling or Beginner Affiliate Marketers, I want to help struggling marketers escape the cycle of scams and beginners to avoid the scams and guide them to the real deal WA. My target audience would be people/mums who want to work from home, lower/middle class workers looking to earn some extra cash and retirees.
My brand would be either Road To Affiliate Success or

What am I missing here -
I finished the Certification Courses and now I am starting WA Bootcamp...am I supposed to start a whole new site about WA? Or am I supposed to continue with my existing site and add WA promotions/reviews to it (WA promotions on a weight loss website?)? OR should i skip Bootcamp if I would rather just work my site? I understand I can do whatever I want I guess I just want to know the difference / purpose of the two programs and do them right. Thanks

I haven’t been here very long, but considering I can have multiple websites, I personally want to do both. Having a way to let people know what I have been through personally to get to WA and letting them know there is a better way without spending a fortune, sounds great to me. Now from all the things I have read on here, no you don’t have to promote it, you can work on your site.

If you work on a niche website, you do not really have to go through the Bootcamp.
It has some advantages though to do both pieces of training.
The benefit of repetition and I have seen many details I overlooked the first time I've done either one of the courses.
You can do the Bootcamp and pick the valuable pieces and skip the parts you don't need.

Anyway, I hear stories of college students making lost of money with Instagram and other platforms.

Hey Joshua, the niche for helping disabled people seems like a good one, but you want to narrow the focus. What I would suggest is to start looking at similar blogs and peruse forums to see what others are talking about in the niche. Take a look at government websites. Perhaps you can cover the deficiencies that you are experience in receiving funding for your disability, etc. Start creating a list from your sources (blogs, forums, government, etc.) These can serve as ideas for what to write about, etc.

OK. So I've had a read. First of all, great post and a really good first post. It was a really easy read. Well done. Keep it up.

Here are a few suggestions:

- Maybe think about imagery. As a non Premium member, I don't know if you've got to imagery yet, but this will certainly make it more engaging to the reader. You've done a great job of titles and keeping blocks of text short. So well done on that.

- Did you base the post on keyword research? If so what is the keyword or phrase you are targeting? You should have this in your title, your first para and possibly again further down the post.

- Finally, your links don't open in a new window. You may want to consider this as you want to also keep readers on your site, even if they navigate away. You can do this by ticking the 'New window' box in the link tool.

Like I say, I think you've done a superb job here. You're set up really well to make your site a great success. Once again, well done. I really liked it.

Good niche. I would probably split them into two sites as I'm guessing the messaging is different to each audience? Having split messaging that addresses two different audiences can dilute the brand and site engagement, as well as give confused messaging. But if they are are similar, then, yes, keep them as one.
Just my thoughts anyway. :-)

Hiya Kyle, on point as usual, just checking my understanding. When setting up your website to be SEO ready; Home Title & Home Description (text boxes) are completed & Keywords Settings (enabled) and automatically checked off then must be updated/saved before exiting General Settings.

Is this process repeated for every page?

You only have to do this for the initial setup, you do not have to do this for every page and post. This will automatically be done for you by the all-in-one SEO tool as it will pull this information from your actual content.

I'm going through getting my direction, have some question to ask about. The below are some of the breaking down from my understanding:-

1). Debts Free (55,700,000 results at google) - keyword tools shows - 300 competitors. but why for searches and traffic only shows <10?

2). Debt Free (12,100,000 results at google) - keyword tools shows - 300 competitors. searches - 9549, traffic - 1624 which both are pretty high in figure?

3). How to be Debt Free (11,9000,000 results at google) - keyword tools shows - 181 competitors. searches - 394, traffic -67.

4). How to get out of debt free (72,600,000 results at google) - keyword tools shows - 10 competitors. searches - 1185, traffic - 202.

a). am i doing the correct way?
b). which need to focus on? competitors? searches? Traffic?

The Google search and keyword search are two different things. Google will show you every variation based on what it thinks you want to see according to your search history. On jaaxy keyword look at the next column called SEO and see how your searches are rated.

Hi Sir,
What is the meaning of QSR , KQI at Jaaxy? What does it stands for?

for exp:

how to get out of debt from... 4912 836 17 Great 86
how to get out from debt free 1106 189 1 Great 88

Are these refer to "how to get out from debt free" is much more better?

PPC usually stands for pay per click - a way that affiliates can get paid.
Reply

Avg is the monthly average of how many peeps use this exact keyword.
Traffic is how many of them go from there to the site.
QSR is how many sites use that keyword and so are competition for getting the traffic noted above.
KQI is the overall rating of that keyword all things considered.
SEO is the rating and likelihood of hitting page 1 for this keyword.
I look down the list at KQI first and manly focus on good ratings.
SEO is my second go-to. If I can score a few 98s then I use Traffic ratings vs QSR to make finer choices. Hope this helps.

I finished reading phase 1 and I have one suggestion for beginners (like me). It is probably good idea to go through all 10 lessons once before starting to build website. I found each of those 10 lessons very important and if you go ahead of any lesson you might end up repairing what you did too soon . It took me only 3 days to go through all 10 lessons and I feel much "smarter" and ready to start.
I like good stuff and those 10 lessons were worth reading even for those who will not follow this path for making income online.

I hope that next phases are as good as first one

Excellent to have accomplished all 10 lessons in 3 days. To clarify further, did you complete all 10 lessons in each of the 7 categories, so all the lessons? If so, and that took 3 days, about how much time did you spend each day? Just curious, as I continue to move through the courses, I am currently in the beginning so your comment helped me to see if should not be too much longer as I try to spend at least 2-3 hours in a given day. And, doing all the courses before building the website is helpful to know as I was curious about this as well. Thank you, Carrie

After watching this Insightful reviews video and the previous lesson I have some questions or maybe concerns about how to do this properly. I would love to write a review about WA and I will but to be truly thorough wouldn't I first have to go through the entire training and experience a result? That would take some time and I want to keep moving forward NOW. Maybe I could make it a review/journey with WA? Kind of an ongoing blog about my experience here along with my results?

Then the same question arises with any product within the affiliate market niche which is what I have chosen as my niche. I would like to promote WA and review products within the work from home space. I say work from home rather than affiliate marketing as I know I can easily write a review a day warning people of what companies/out right scams to avoid while referring them here to WA. That being said, do I need to purchase the products I review and give my insightful feedback or is there a way I am not familiar with to review a product without purchasing it?

Then lastly when writing my about me page I am having a problem as I want to be truthful about myself and all the blogs/websites I have seen have a similar story. They have failed at a number of attempts to make money online, almost quit and then they found xyz company and are now making money.....And you can too!! It's pretty much the standard blog. My situation is a bit different. Yes I have failed with almost all en devours online, not from lack of trying hard, but from being mislead over and over again. So my question is why would anyone follow my advice? I am the authority on what not to do at this point...lol. I believe I am finally in the right place and will succeed here but in the mean time I need to write something. Sorry for the long winded comment. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!!

Cheers,

Lots of questions, and I'll do my best to answer them all as best I can.

The easiest one is reviewing WA now. You can certainly review it now. You could give a "full" review based on your experience so far, and continue to add to it as you learn more. You could also do it as a journey style blog as you mentioned, outlining your experience and progress as you suggested. Or, you could do both. Write the review to prompt reader's to sign up and add your affiliate link, then all of your "journey/progress" posts could point to the review for more information on the program.

As far as reviewing other products, no you do not have to buy them to review them. Look around their website and gather all of the information you can. Look through their FAQs, blog (if they have one) and read other reviews. Some product owners will even answer questions about their product if you email them and let them know you want to review the product on your website. I have done this several times, and only once did I not get a response.

Your about me page can be anything you want. It can be about the failures you've experienced that brought you to WA, or it can be about why you wanted to learn to make money online. Since you mentioned that you wanted to help people avoid being scammed, you could also use the bad experiences you've had to let people know you want to make sure they don't get sucked into the same traps. If you believe WA is the answer to those traps you can point them here. Just make sure your other reviews are honest and you don't just call every other program garbage, or your readers will think you are just another scammer.

I hope this helps. If I didn't answer anything clearly enough feel free to PM me.

Hey Ann. I got several ideas for you. There are many affiliate opportunities out, specially with Amazon and Ebay. If you would like to go towards Literature, you could write synopsis for books and point your readers to Amazon / Ebay where they can buy (and you get commissions). If you want to go towards movies, you could do the same, sysnopsis and point them to where they can buy the movies (DVD, BlueRay) and you earn the commission. For crafts, you could do how-to crafts and point your readers to Amazon / Ebay where they can purchase the supplies you use in your how-to's and you get a cut of the earnings. :)

I hope this helped, even if a tiny wee bit.

I have two new .com web site on WA WP platform that have been published. I can continue to work on them within WP no problem. But if I type in the domain name on say Goggle search I'm taken to the WP sign in page, not the web site directly.
This makes it impossible to market, anyone have a solution?
Reply

I think the reason why it is taking you to the WP sign in page is because of the /wp-admin/ that gets added automatically to the end of your .com... have you tried removing that? This usually works for me. The reason it comes up is because of the cookies on your browser, I think. Your browser thinks that's where you want to go because you've been there before. Let me know if that works.... :)

I am just starting out at affiliate marketing and I find the making money online niche is very appealing to me and I am really interested about it .

yet I feel it's kind of cheating to promote to people something I didn't really succeed at , I mean that I should at least make money in any other niche before choosing the money making niche so I can promote confidently and genuinely.

am I correct on my way of thinking ? please correct me if I am wrong.
