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!

Always check your numbers, it's in the training and you would use Jaxxy to do it. If you have too much competition then your selection is too wide (= too many people doing it) and so you would have to refine your search/keywords to get traffic. Hope this helps. L.

Ok I finished leson 2 yesturday and went to leson 3 to build my website and read through it. But my mind kept going back to my brand and who i wanted to help. So now I finally figured it out because of my Daughter she is a grade school teacher and was a single mom for about 5 years. Besides teaching she has a part time job and dont have as much time for the kids. So if i can find at least one teacher that would be successful with WA. I would feel I had accomplished something. So Teachers will be my brand. Now I can start on my website! Please bare with me I am a slow learner. I know some folks are breasing through the training
THANK YOU

Or, is it that teachers will be your target audience?

Keep reading the training and don't be in too much of a hurry to choose your niche as the ongoing training will - maybe - reveal more information to you that will help you refine, or in my case even change your choice.

This is a process, so take your time.

Perfectly alright. This stuff can be overwhelming, and I have found that the training, which is excellent, can lead one to revise an already chosen niche/brand/name strategy, at which point I got awfully confused!

Anyway, I decided that time is what was required and more information, so I am taking my time and absorbing the information.

:-)

PS: I bought a domain name, mistake. I built a website that I didn't like, mistake. It was all too soon. I wasn't ready. Rome was not built in a day, and that is ok.

Will my audience trust me without any mark except for the these few lessons ,its the knowledge i have about affiliate and little bit of research?

Hey people and a good day to you all. Just started the boot camp and would like some feedback for my brand name if possible.

I make my living online Matched Betting/Pro Gambling. I want to help people make money in this niche and promote Matched Betting as well as WA on my site.

I was thinking of "The Matched Betting Affiliate" or "The Affiliate Matched Bettor" as my brand name.

Any thoughts on these brand names would be much appreciated.

By the way i would never promote out and out gambling and it's not what i do. I spent years finding an edge and refining my skills and all my risk is strictly managed.

Kyle Premium
I would try to avoid combining these as I mentioned in another post. They aren't all that related, you could have a post on your website that promotes WA, but the focus if you wanted to head in the matched betting direction, I recommend that you make that the focus of your overall niche/content on your website.
Reply
RWatson1 Premium
Kyle i posted this before noticing your earlier reply regarding not mixing the two on the one site. I was just thinking that if i was creating a make money online website and i am an affiliate with WA and a Matched Betting site, would make sense to review both on the one site. I've taken on board your opinion and will separate the two. Thanks

Hi. I started working my way through the Online Entrepreneur Certification course as i had a niche idea of my own. This niche is however, in the making money online niche. I would like to promote WA as well as the Matched Betting niche i was originally planning on, among hopefully other online money making schemes. I have set up the initial website for Matched Betting but haven't really progressed it much apart from the initial welcoming content. Is it advisable to jump into the Boot Camp training now and create another website where i can incorporate Matched Betting,WA and hopefully others going forward?
Reply
Kyle Premium
I wouldn't try to combine these both into the same site, choose one or the other when starting out.

You can be involved in both down the road (and have two websites), but you want to get the formula for success down within ONE before you diversify and get involved in several. :)

RWatson1 Premium
Thanks for the response Kyle. So would you suggest building a site to promote only WA to start with?

I have only just started in this so have no experience of affiliate marketing. Is it possible to promote WA with no actual experience in affiliate marketing?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Up to you. And you don't need experience in any niche to be an expert in any niche. This is established over time and as you build out your website.

So it is completely up to you the direction that you want to head here Ray, which one interests you most? I would make that your starting point.

PS. We have many people that were in Vegas this past year that started out with no experience in affiliate marketing, just like you.

So here is where I landed with a niche selection. In transitioning from being a tech person only (network, servers, development), into the world of Internet Marketing, I found it incredibly difficult to master any one skill. At every turn it seemed like I needed to learn something else.

This created about a 12 month cycle of buying WSOs, software, training courses, etc. only to never be able to focus on any of it, as it came with so many upsells, and the need to then go buy something else to complement it, etc.

This leads me to think that I may not be the only one who came to the world of IM, but failed miserably despite investing some time and money. So as a niche, it would seem to be good to market to either people new to internet marketing, or even better, those who have been around a while, spent a lot of money and/or time and have not got off the ground yet.

With that in mind, it would seem that I can really only offer WA as a solution at this point. While the commissions could be good from that standpoint, this might be a difficult one to monetize with only one revenue source (recommending WA as the final frontier to the frustrated marketer).

I am asking since maybe this is not the best place to start though I could write all kinds of reviews about IM products since there are multiple ones that come out every day. With that said, it's difficult to review them thoroughly without buying them (and the upsells) and getting approved is a real challenge - so even when not recommending them, it's been taught to have an affiliate link but that is not likely possible as approval at JVZoo and warrior plus is tough for someone without sales.

Any thoughts would be appreciated, as I am wondering if I am approaching niche selection wrong for a beginner.

Well i may not really understand what you are talking about or your niche but from what you have written, I would advise you to focus on building your niche around your own experience. Share with people how you started, your journey, your failures and lessons learned, how you ended up at wealthy affiliate and why you would recommend it.

I'm getting a little discouraged just because there's so much writing to create. One of my weakest points. You really have to be a creative writer in order to succeed with this. Between the articles and now reviews its getting a little overwhelming. I don't know....I'm hoping I can overcome this roadblock

Your writing is fine David and your goal of your content is not to actually "write" so much, rather you are communicating. That is all it is.

You communicate all day, now it is just a matter of applying those skills (which I can tell you are good at) to your online business. There is a really awesome post that I want to refer you to here that I think will give you some new found perspective on this topic: Trust me, your writing is more than fine and if you ever need a hand or want me to to look at your content, let me know.

Yes, people looking for a new job, or people looking to get away from their existing job. These are actually two different niches, you could choose either one.

I would like to ask if I could build a website about different ways to make money online. Dropshipping,domaining,affiliate marketing,e-commerce,social media agency,etc is this a good idea or is this too saturated?

Plus i need to know if when becoming a member(premium)at WA does it come with wordpress,hosting,domain name,a e-mail responder, a click funnel system, lead capture page.Is this a all package thing or not?

Will I have to buy hosting,then a click funnel system,a domain,a responder on top of the 49$/month fee. I am very worry because i am coming out of a bad experience with a certain make money online I purchased for 300$ just a couple days ago that turn out to be complete trash.

For niche research beside the make money online idea I have, I am lost, all the gurus online say not to follow your passion but to follow the needs, to look for competition cost per cpc how many people are looking for those terms. Also I don't know what column to look at when i do a search term in keyword planner is it the top of page low bid or the top of page high bid to know how much it would cost to run ads for a specific keyword.

I wish you guys all the best!

Hi Eric

It is your business so it is up to you what niche you want to work in.

The premium membership comes with a website builder wordpress, and hosting. You can buy domains through WA and they typically start at $13.99.

If you want to use a click funnel system you would have to buy it outside of WA. Not everybody here uses one.

WA is not about CPC, it is about creating a site that gets ranked highly in google, bing and yahoo so that you don't have to pay for advertising. However, this isn't a get rich quick method. It will take time and hard work.


The best advice I can give is follow the training as you will have a much clearer idea of how everything works by doing this.

Hope this helps

I'm a mum to three really energetic boys (9, 7 & 5), they do a ton of "extra-curricula" / "extra cost" activities (too many I'm sure, but I don't want to limit them, if they have an interest, I try my best to make it work!). I work full time, we are renovating our house (hubby is the builder, so he is only spending, not bringing in income!)... what's the point in me telling you this? I want to focus on people like me... we would definitely be considered well off, with a big house in a really nice area, but we have big debts and much bigger dreams... my main problem, I don't know what to call this audience!

Love the training so far. I particularly enjoyed the breakdown of the progression time-frame, that really helped me envision what success would look like and where I am in relation to it.

I am Premium already and have started the affiliate bootcamp whilst part way through the first training.

I have realised that my niche of working musicians, is a sub category of the making money online niche and can be related to WA promotion as well, aiming it this at musicians could be a good niche as they can use the hosting feature at the very least to host their business and the training to help then promote their music.

Hi,
When I started with WA last week, I believe. I started the affiliate training where I already made a website.
Now I am working through the Bootcamp training and I am being asked to create a website.
Am I supposed to start all over and create another website or will I be able to use the one I already created?
Reply
Kyle Premium
You don't start over no, if you are building a website for working within the make money niche and promoting WA along with other products/services in the industry, you are in the right place here. ;)

You don't have to rebuild your website either, if it is relevant to this niche.

I want others to join the community and continue to expand this vast network. I want to convey the potential of having a business idea and then putting it online. The potential exposure to like minded people for certain ideas is always there too.

I'd like to market to young people as well to start early and why they'll profit sooner than later.

The best reward will be that you will be your own boss. Establishing yourself in the market is key to defining your brand. That's what they'll learn here and I'm sure everyone can benefit when they do because success is awesome!

Target audience...everyone? That's vast and frankly an endless challenge. Anyone seeking to be their own boss would be my target and that sounds like everyone so that's why it can be an omnipresent niche.

I'll brainstorm on more specific audiences and come up with ideas for getting them here. I'll also continue with my training. I'd just like some feedback from my peers. Thanks :)

Ok, I think I'm a little confused. When it comes to creating the WA review, are we supposed to have two websites? I thought our niche website was supposed to only have content related to our niche. My niche is about vehicles. So a post about affiliate marketing wouldn't really fit in well there. Do I go ahead and post the review to my niche website or work on a website promoting Wealthy Affiliate?

You should start with just one niche website of whatever you like. You don't have to promote WA if you don't want to. You should pick one or the other if you are just starting out.

Great question there! I am writing my review and was thinking I could make it relevant for my audience of working musicians by saying how it could help you as a musician in terms of hosting your website and the training in marketing.
So it could be ' Wealthy affiliate for Musicians - Does it work?' or similar

What do you think?

I want to blog about being a courier as I am one!

I want to tell people about my background and why, having worked in so many shit and underpaid jobs and having no desire to be involved in office politics etc etc has led me to this site and become an online marketer!

How can I get my search down to under 300?

Any Google search with the word "courier" in it as you can imagine has way too many searches!
Reply
Kyle Premium
Sure, that could work. And within this space, you could definitely branch out and diversify. Your brand could be about your carreer, and then within your website, you can help people create and grow a business online and show them the online opportunity (along with others).

I like it. You are going to be be able to target MANY keywords outside of the courier line of keywords as well. There will be no shortage.
Reply
RTR2705 Premium
Thank you Kyle - unsure how to target the keywords - can you help or show me where to find it?
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 Ryan ... 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 Ryan!

OKAY! I have too much passion to pick just one direction. Retired, disabled retired, student with bills but no job, poor (not even middle class, residual income seeker, leading the baby boomers, laid off from job, too old to be hired, and plenty of debt but -$0.00 balance in the bank, accused of something I didn't do.

Just make sure you know all of the benefits that WA can offer a newbie member to create their own online business in whatever niche they decide.

In order to effectively promote WA and get premium referrals, you will need to know the WA training, especially the Online Entrepreneur Certification course.

Thank you for sharing the article. It makes sense to have all the knowledge possible to effectively promote WA. Taking the training from the beginning and proceeding in a step by step manner is no doubt the most efficient approach.

For my website, I know who my audience are and will be. To promote Wealthy Affiliate in my niche is quite a challenge but I am going to find a way and learn how to promote WA in my said niche.

Any pointers and recommendations. My niche is nursing profession with health and wellness combined. Thank you.

Flyboy2014 Premium
I'm not a nurse, but I was a paramedic, my sister-in-law is a nurse. If you are going to promote WA to the nurses one of the ways I think you can promote it is as a way for Nurses to create an online income, on a platform that provides "free" training, and a community of support. You could also ask the question of members if there are other nurses in WA. I'm sure that are a lot.

If your niche is nursing and/or health and wellness, you need to be doing the Certification Course and not Bootcamp.

So if I would like to pursue bootcamp I would have to create a new website leaning towards that niche?

I feel that I'm beginning to make some progress in Affiliate Bootcamp. I do have a concern, however, my rank keeps increasing instead of decreasing. I was not on the board for a few days trying to get my thoughts together for my site. I could understand that. But I've been back on the board and doing my training so I don't understand why it's increasing. Please advise so that I could correct the problem?

If you're referring to the "rank" under your profile picture, that number will fluctuate pretty widely especially when you are relatively new. New sign ups and your participation are what primarily affect this rank.

Every online business starts with a solid foundation, a website. WA has some of the most useful and integrated tools for website analysis, management, ranking, and security included within your platform. Features that are not offered anywhere else in the world. The website platform is ridiculously easy to use, yet very advanced. Building beautiful websites has never been this awesome.

Sure, you use screenshots. We have no problems with that Sandra. :)

I would use any duplicate content though, so don't copy and paste content on your website. That will definitely hurt your rankings in search engines.

You can do this through the Pen icon in the header you will see "Write a Post" under there. That is where you go to share a story, etc. Just do know that we don't allow any promotions here at WA, so please refrain from that.

Blog posts on WA are separate from the website. The blog posts on WA help your ranking on WA.

If you'd like to start posting blogs on WA, there is a "pencil/pen" icon on the menu above, where your notifications are. Click on this "pencil", then click on "Blog at WA".

Choose my brand? That’s a tough one. I understand the article and it’s implications. How does one brainstorm a brand? This made me think about the “napkin sketch,” many businesses were born out of doing that. Read about it in a book, “The Last Lecture” by Randy Pausch.

Maybe because I'm a "techie," this was super easy. The hardest part so far was coming up with a Niche and a name. That was actually easy also, because the system checks to see if names exist. My previous 3 did... doh! Someone was here before me.

Kyle is a very good teacher.

Before, I used to say that I am not technical at all. Now with Kyle's teaching, I can actually see myself understanding the technicality of creating a website. Traditionally, I learn things the first time around. I have to admit that I will have to listen a few more times, but at least, I am understanding what is being said.

Now, on to creating Menus and Widgets for my site. [Soooo EXCITING!!!] I like the "Foot Menu," better than it being at the side. I want to use the "Side" for advertising products, programs or services; or featuring a personality. So is there a template to do this?

See I am also understanding the lingo. HALLELUJAH!

Some people start with one career(job) and then switch.
The choice is yours.
For me, I started with one career and midway through training switched to another. This one became my future.
I worked at it for 13 1/2 years, took a year break and listened to others who advised me to return and finish. This I did and retired.

I am not sure if this question is going to be easy to explain to any of you, But, I have to try it anyway. The thing is, I have these links that are in the page from the Brand that I am promoting that have a list of options like: Description - How to use it - Benefits - Ingredients, etc. So I copy and paste those links. When people on my page click on those, instead of being transferred to the Description, for example, or How to use it, they take the subscriber that is in my page back to the Brands's page. I don't want the person, that is my subscriber, to be taken back to the Brands's page, but continue on my page, giving the Description.
Cutting short, I want the subscriber to never leave my post page. How do I go about doing that? I mean, I do not mind if they get directed to the pay page.
Thank you so much!

Hi Luzia,

are you referring to copying and pasting product overview information, that are cloaked with back links, from another website on to you review?

If so, then I suggest that you do not use copy and paste, but write and arrange these item descriptions in your own wording - the site has obviously hidden their content with back links, that are also transferred to your content when it is pasted.

I hope this is what you are querying,

So I decided for the direction: helping people find financial freedom online. The background story is I have known since the early 90s that my success lies online, yet I have struggled to find genuine training - yes I spent £100 000's since then. So now I am really passionate about becoming an expert and help others to find their way without having to go through what I went through.

llo I am having trouble refining my brand. I want to work with communities that most people forget about and some of them have money and some of them don't.
The first set will be the set I believe I can be successful with passive/residual income seekers, remote/computer job seekers, eBay sellers, affiliate network keywords, criminals (I think you should change that to people with felonies rather than saying criminals personally). People going to school for or are interested in computers programming, marketing, business. The at home business niche.
The other community is the transgender community. People who are living in sober livings. Those who are aging out of foster care. The Deaf community, people who are or have been sexually trafficked. Those who dont really have the money to do things or support themselves and are on government programs. Is there a way that we could ever get a contract with a local government where they would pay for them to get training through us ? Liike financial aid? Or would I have to start a non profit? I also want to start a LLC and get a EIN number so that my business would be seperate then my persoanl social security number. Can I do that with this kindof business ?

I have just finished my WA review and would like feedback before I publish it to my site. So, here goes...Be gentle, but be honest please.

While surfing the internet the other night, I came across an affiliate site that blew me out of the water, so to speak. I was looking for ways to earn money online. I thought I had found a good one online when I came across this one while researching the other one.
Background

For years I have been looking online for some way to make money so I could get off the road and be at home with my son. Then it happened, I was told I had to quit driving truck or end up in a wheelchair within a week. Enough about my problems, on to the good news.
The Good News

After finding out the other site I was researching was too expensive for me to start, I checked out Wealthy Affiliate. They were just what I was looking for. They offer a free trial, with more than enough step-by-step training and support to make it worth my while to join. They are extremely honest and a great community of people all willing to encourage and support any who join along the way. Even the people who are going through the free training get the same support system.

I am so glad I found this site, I can now see a light at the end of the tunnel, so to speak.
What to expect

7 day free trial with full training
Affordable fee to join
Extensive and very Intensive training
The ability to build up to 2 websites during free training
After you join it is only $49.00/month or $359.00/year.
Full encouragement and support the whole time
Questions answered within 24 hours.

My opinion

In my opinion, I could not have found a better way to make a living online. Check them out for yourself at www.wealthyaffiliate.com . If you have any comments or questions just leave them below and I will answer them within 24 hours.

It is a gift from my higher power. There is so much support. I was telling my friend that the most stressful part of WA is responding to everyone's words of support. There are just so many people wishing me good luck and telling me that they are here for me. I am following you and I am here for you too. I am at the beginning but I am a good listener and amazing at research. Welcome to the family!

Wealthy affiliate is the way to go. I have learned so much over the past 10 years, well, 3 months here and 3 months there, but it finally hit me, after failure after failure. I know it took a long time.
People don't buy because they want to or because you tell them to, they buy because it solves a problem. So, I have to become a problem solver. And they tend to buy from trusted sources, even warm traffic won't buy from un-trusted sources, so it is time to brand myself. I have a ton to offer with all the lessons I have learned the hard way.

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

(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

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.

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.

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?

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.

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!

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.

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

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.

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.

However I don't feel I know much about the subject as to tell / show somebody else how to go about it. I guess this will be up to WA to do that, all I need to do is drive traffic their way...right?
Brand would be "Your Life, Your Choice".

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.

Your thoughts?

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?

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.

I'm in trouble! I've got way too many 'niche' ideas swirling in my brain! I liked the minimum wage article and was thinking I could help Juniors or Seniors in High School to have a better option than working in fast food, or as a bagger in a grocery store. 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).

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.

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.

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

fyre Premium
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. =)

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?

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.

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

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?

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 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?

Don't worry about keyword research when choosing your niche, it is the keywords that you target with your content on your website that you perform keyword research on.

Choose any niche that you are passionate about. There are 4 BILLION people online, they are all going to be lucrative.

I want to target all kind of people in all walks of life. Women, men, who are in all kinds of environment. People who're not making much money on their jobs. People who are making money on their job, but want different walk of life. I like to know how to target those audiences.

I would really narrow it down. You can head in the "dissatisfied" or people that hate their jobs. There certainly is enough of those out there and you could carve out a very lucrative business in that space.

I finally got to publish my review on my website. I hope someone will take a few moments to check it out. I would love some feedback.

https://affiliatexplorer.com/wish-com-a-review-the-attractive-not-so-attractive-downright-annoying/

I didn't do a Wealthy Affiliate review per se, but a review of an online shopping site that I had some experience with. However I did include links to Affiliate marketing & WA in particular.

I want to change the title of my home page from "Blog" to something else, but haven't figured it out yet. Plus I hope to change my site theme later.

Thanks and continuing success to all . . .

Whew!!!!!!!

I would like to choose the direction of helping people who want to work from home. And to refine this even further, people who need to work from home due to health issues or disabilities. Does this sound like a workable direction? Do I need to target it further? Any comments or suggestions?

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.

You're welcome Joan. And by the way you're not required to do the affiliate bootcamp. That's really an option for people that want to work in the work at home niche. But you can pick your own niche and I discuss how to do that in my cheat sheet you read. So keep that in mind as well.

Thanks, Eddy! I'm thinking I'd like to start off by focusing on the work at home niche. Down the road, I'd like to also give the thriller novels niche a try. I'm really interested in both, but it seems to me that the work at home niche would probably bring in income faster, and that's what I need right now.
Reply
EddySalomon Premium
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. Trust me on this.

I have a Genesis theme installed on my website. In the footer there are links. One of them is to login and/or log out of my website. I think this is a security issue for my site. I Googled for possible solutions, and found out that I'd have to install the Genesis Simple Edits plugin in order to edit the footer. The problem is I don't have the html or php knowlegde in order to do this. Would someone be able to help me or should I just go with one of the themes for premium members? Thanks so much.

Its got a pretty good explanation of how to use the plugin. With the plugin you don't need to know any coding.

I really must be overthinking this cuz I'm so stuck. Ok I may be scared to make a decision. Idk what's a good idea. I just gotta do it. Make a decision and just go with it. I guess I just want it to be the perfect idea. Ok I'm gonna just make a decision and go with it. Get the practice, it doesn't have to be permanent, if I mess up I can start again. I will make the commitment to learn as I go, keywords as I go. No stopping. Gotta keep moving.

The time invested with the Online Entrepreneur Cert has been great and I have met and followed quite a few super people here in WA land.
I just started the Boot Camp....duh. My site would be so much further ahead.
I truly believe 500 people want to join me this year in obtaining another trip to Las Vegas. We are taking our son and his partner to Vegas for his 21st birthday.
Furthermore those folks will be joining a wonderful community of learners and teachers, mentors and mentees!
Best wishes to all.
As always, let me know if I can help.

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

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.

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.

Sidebars are usually present in posts instead of pages, you can try publishing a new post and see if the sidebar appears.

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

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.

Yes, absolutely. There is a ton of different things that you can discuss within this space, and lots of products/services that you can recommend, and likely lots that you can help people avoid (scams).

By all means, this is certainly a direction that you can head here.

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.
