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.

 


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!

I just finished watching the video on "Creating Content" and am ready to start composing my Story.

But, I have a problem. I already have another domain and this one in the Boot Camp is another one.

When I try to log into the SiteContent, it takes me to my first domain. How can I access new set of topics in the left margin?

Hi Marion. You should be able to click on the Websites tab then on Site content, then click on create new. That should take you to the point where you can create new content and then link it to your new website.

I am struggling a bit to choose my domain name. I'm passionate about language learning but if I have a blog/website with language tips in English, I can't see how I could get earnings from that. I would also love to get referrals for WA but there is no connection to language learning. Can anyone give me advice?
Reply
JamieNix Premium
I’m passionate about languages too and also speak different languages, WA is a place to learn a lot like marketing, online business, hosting...etc, maybe you can target people who wants to learn all these kind of “professional language”. For example “Marketing English” “ Business English” “ Commercial English”...etc.

Just some ideas for you :)

Hi,

I have set up SEO as per instructions and have created some posts.

When you create your posts, do you manually need to add a title, description and keyword for each post in the SEO section at the bottom so they are populated. Mine don't look to have anything filled in.
If i look at my posts they all have no SEO title/description and no keyword filled in.

i don't recall seeing a step in training that told us to do this so not sure if i am missing something

Cheers for any help

The All in One SEO plugin will automatically add all of your titles, descriptions and keywords based on the actual content (for each page and post you publish).

So just set-up the All in One SEO the first time, then afterwards you don't have to add these with each new page or post that is created. This is done for you automatically.
Reply
Browny5000 Premium
Thanks Kyle,

So just expanding on that.
Should all in one SEO update the keywords and descriptions on the post page in dashboard where i can see all my posts. Reason i ask is they are all currently listed as no description, no title, no keywords. see attached screenshot.

Does this mean i have not set up all in one SEO correctly?

Cheers

Good Luck and much success. It is so much nicer being your own boss!!

So I have a burning question ...

What is the difference between using pages in menus and using categories/posts? For example:

Let's say I have a category called "Legal Stuff" that I have set as a top menu, and I want to add the Privacy Policy, Affiliate Disclosure, and DMCA Policy (and I've made those posts) as sub-menus to it. Would this necessarily be a bad thing? Does it matter?
Reply
Kyle Premium
A post can be categorized. That is typically used for internal categorization, and you can control that. You are going to be managing your menus through custom menus, likely not through categories.

You can add these custom menus to organize your top menu in any way in which you like, as well as create sub-menus (for themes that will support this). You can also use these custom menus to add within your side widgets on your website (within your sidebar).

Here is a tutorial on how to create custom menus: I use custom menus on all of my websites (over-ride that default menu). It allows much more control and organization....both good things!
Reply
Lokhi Premium
Many thanks, Kyle ...

I have my posts categorized ... but I tend to make some categories specifically for menus, like the example I made - "Legal Stuff" - and then I'll put the pertinent stuff beneath it. The posts beneath it are also categorized just in case the visitor clicks on the 'legal stuff' category in the tag cloud or on one of the pages/posts. Does that make sense?

I watched that video. I've played around with the menus and I've found a way to do them that I like, I just wasn't sure if the way that I do them is a way that is good or damaging, when it comes to SEO stuff and such.

Sure, you can head in that direction. Never worry about affiliate programs, there are going to be plenty within any niche.

And you can use your existing website (if you are happy with your domain) or you could choose a different one and start fresh. Up to you, you are in control of that.

I'm back with a strong mission, committed, dedicated, all the way!! I'm hungry!!! Thirsty!!! Here is my goal: to help as many people possible before this year ends get to WA, so they can also get started building a cyberlife. More options and control over ones time.

Yea I'm definitely a perfectionist too. Before I launch anything I want everything to be fully functional, designed the best it can be, and have the best copywriting ever. But what I learned after spending a little more than a year in this business is that being a perfectionist can significantly hinder your progress.

The best thing is to just to do it.

Which sometimes is harder than it sounds. I keep two things in mind to get through these kinds of problems.

1. Blogging isn't like writing a book. I can always come back and change it. So if you write something now and then you feel different about it later, go back to your review and make the change.

2. In the beginning, no one reads the posts except yourself and whoever you give the post to. Over time you will develop your voice and build out your unique following. It's so hard to be perfect in writing. Every person has their own tastes.

Hope that might help you a little.

My experience (niche) is in the "Event" profession, most all my life and I'm 62 now. Meetings, Conventions, Weddings, Fairs, Festivals, Special Events etc.

My idea is to help people earn money being an affiliate and selling "event" industry products and services. There are products, that event planners use, like Tradeshow Displays, sings and banners etc. Also there are EVENTS (like Yoga Retreats) that often times have affiliate programs.

Anyone interested in collaborating in the EVENT space?

Sure, you first need to decide WHO your specific audience is . If you are helping people with stinky feet, that would obviously be a really good domain.

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

I want to help people that ______________.

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

(Free online training) this is the name i would like to use.
Reply
kevinzshan Premium
Yea domain names can't include any spaces or most special characters. So things like () or the spaces between each letter wouldn't qualify. You can try freeonlinetraining.com or free-online-training.com. freeonlinetraining.com would be preferable, but I anticipate that someone has already taken that domain name.

You might need to get a little creative. Many domain names revolving around the words free, online, and training have been taken.

Yep, I didn't intend on making them links but you can see that one already has a website on it and another is someone selling the domain for $2800.

I think "beginners" a good niche, although it may be a lot of "hand holding" unless you can easily direct them to the proper trainings in WA.

There are a LOT of people interested in earning online income, but it is NOT near as easy as most marketers would have you believe.

Hi Kyle,

I've been using Jaaxy to narrow down the niche I want to target for WA promotion. I find the Avg search and QSR columns to be very helpful.

I've decided that I want to help people who are seeking passive income. I'm having trouble deciding the direction I want to take on this niche:

I'm stuck between 3 specific keywords and I'm having a hard time deciding which one to build my brand around. These keywords are all things that I could easily create content on.

EX. I want to help people who are seeking passive income, who want [to learn]:
how to work online from home
how to quit my 9 to 5
help for paying off student loans

Can I simply base my decision on which keyword has the best Avg searches to QSR rating? (High avg search, low QSR)

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Ashley :)
Reply
Kyle Premium
Don't base your decisions on keywords for a niche. There are going to be 1,000's of low competition keywords in any niche that you can target with the content you create on your website.

Base your niche on an audience or group of people that you want to help.

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

I want to help people that ______________.

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

My goals as an affiliate to WA will depend on ; how much time I'm willing to invest each day, how much traffic I drive to WA and other custom pages.
Here they are;
I expect to get at least 20 referrals per month
I expect to get a lucrative income out of the referral program of about $250 per month
My referrals will earn referrals bonuses of about $25
Etc.

Hi, I typed one of many key phrases into jaaxy and got many results, This is one of my 3rd or 4th drill downs on a phrase with lots of traffic and low QSR, The phrase is "how to earn money at home and online" What do you reckon for using it to market W.A. as an affiluiate?
Reply
Kyle Premium
That would be a decent keyword, I do doubt how much traffic that would get.

But it is certainly something that you could target because remember that when you do target a keyword phrase you are actually targeting every internal keyword within that phrase. ;)

Hi everyone :)

How is it that nobody talks about themes selection? I know for a fact that there is important things to take in considerations when choosing a them beside the design. What about SEO friendly themes? Mobile friendly themes or wp themes that have good plugin already in them?
Another important subject is the domain; witch can be better informed in what to look for when buying a new domain vs an aged domain with some link power and authority on it, what about domain with previous penalty from google? am I missing information here or is it not important?
It's a shame that I need to search online for more information for each step, I figured this was the purpose of the training here, to cover all the important information.
Feeling confused here...

Choose a theme that is simple, ideally with a white background and black text (as this is the most readable).

I tend to avoid themes with too many bells and whistles as the focus of your website will be your content and your content will make your website look visually appealing to your audience.

So choose something simple, yet elegant and if you ever need to change down the road, you can easily do so within Appearance => Themes.

There are over 3,000 to choose from there and you will also be able to upload your own from there.

I have created some training on how to do this that you should check out:

There is no "best" theme out there - it's all a matter of taste. That being said, I always recommend you start with something simple. White background with black text is the way to go. Choose a simple homepage that displays your blog roll, a top menu, and the sidebar. That's it!

Everything else is pretty much a distraction at this point.

Here's just a few simple themes I found that I like, but there are thousands more out there. Also, you can skip "aged" domains. They are not worth the money IMO. You can spend tons of hours and a chunk of money, and you'll probably end up with a domain that performs on par with a brand new one.

Those inbound links won't be worth much if they are pointing to 404 pages. If they are not relevant to your current niche, you may even end up with an unnatural link penalty.

Sure, in some cases, a relevant, aged domain, with proper redirects, in the same niche, COULD help you rank faster and better. But that takes a lot of time to research, and a chunk of money to buy, so most people are better off starting off fresh.

Plus, Google says age is not a ranking signal.

Well, I went through this training, and I understand everything that it is saying, but I am finding a hard time with the branding and target audience. I am looking at a target audience of people looking to make money online from home. I thought about a brand "Affiliate from the 808". I already purchased a domain loretta-mabrey.com. So my question is do I need to change my domain name?

Hi Bill - granpaRolf here. By choosing th Bootcamp you wull learn how to promote Wealthy Affiliate as an affiliate.

You can get a decent paycheck becoming an affiliate of WA, but it takes time.

There is no shortcuts here unfortunately - the only thing we have to do is follow the training and then take the requested action, i.e. do the tasks required

I hope this helps as I choose this route and it suits me!

I think I can write about some topics regarding digital marketing focusing on search engine optimization but I know its a bit broad and very competitive. currently I'm trying to choose my brand direction and I cant decide... going with the example in the lesson, my "Brand" direction is helping people make money from home/online but I still feel it is very broad and I fear that in the future this would be my biggest problem so I'm not sure how to move foreword.

Hi Ellash - granpaRolf here. I had the same problem, and I solved it by choosing to promote Wealthy Affiliate. So now I am going through the Bootcamp.

As Kyle said, we don't need to choose our brand immediately, as we will likely go into multiple niches as we understand more of the online marketing scene.

And your interest ans skills you can apply in any niche. This is my humble advice from another "scatter mind" that has found "clarity" in choosing the most obvious - promoting WA!

Hooping this helps!

I have been reading a couple of reviews and these people has experience within Affiliate marketing, and can show statistics and earnings from their activity.

What do I do without any experience or traction or earnings? Will it not be a little pretentious of me to claim that I can advise them about what to do?

I have written a lot of technical reports in my time within my own domain of expertise, but does that give me the right to advice others in a topic that I hardly understand thoroughly yet?,

I also understand the CIAO principle, but is this enough to write a review? I want to help people, not mislead them - that's my initial worry.

Can someone tell m if I am totally out for lunch here or are these valid concerns?

Reply, these are legitimate concerns. When you are trying to be an honest business person, it can feel like you are pushing against the tide.

I am in the same boat as you, I have only played with blogging and website building over the years. Never too much success... But with every failure comes knowledge. Share that knowledge, share your understanding right now.

Check out my review of WA here and see if you find it helpful. It does not brag about all the money I earn or success I have had. Remember, that you can always update and rewrite the article as your knowledge and experience grow.

In fact, I would recommend it.

I am following you now, as you proved to give good advice and I may turn to you again later. And who knows - I may later be in the position to give advice later - even to you...!

Hi Dovey, I was going through the training and saw your response to this VERY good question, and I am so impressed with your website!!! Thank you for taking the time to link it so we can see an awesome example of a successful WA website. I am seriously pumped about getting content written and getting ranked!!! What's crazy is, I never knew I was passionate about this until a few days ago. I'd hear about affiliate marketing before, but could never get a straight answer from any of the YouTube videos I was watching. It wasn't until the other day when I was looking up one of those YouTube videos to see if it was a scam and I was redirected to another members site that recommended WA. Since then I have seriously progressed.This is FUN!!!

Then change your theme to something else. If you don't like how your theme works, there are lots of options. In fact you have access to over 3,000 themes as a premium member.

You can change your theme at any time within your WP-admin:

Appearance => Themes

There are over 3,000 to choose from there and you will also be able to upload your own from there.

Simply do a search there (the search is pretty good) and you will be able to find a theme/look that you are seeking.

Retired individuals and couples is my direction (being a retiree myself)
But I have 3 other alternative as ptentialell,
1, College/University students
2. Recurring income seekers
3. Work from home

My favorite is the retired individual/couple but I think the 3 other also have great potential. I need some pointers what should be the direction of the site.
Reply
Robert-A Premium
Work From Home is pretty broad as it takes in a wide variety of people and 'Jobs'.

Students is quite good as they are more likely to be short of cash anyway and they would be an ideal target audience.

Over 60's is quite good as well but a lot of that age group would probably not be all that computer literate unless their former employment meant they used computers in that employment.

They might think that WA is not a good option to earn extra money even though the training is step by step it might put them off.

Just my opinion Rolf and based on conversations I have with the over 60's.

I was actually 70 in June but have a lot of online experience from my former 9 to 5.

Hi all - appreciate your comment good or bad-
My desired nitch would be to help those that are down and out financially and in the above 40yo bracket. This tends to be the age that those on standard wages struggle with education fees for near-adult kids, mortgage, and general living. If you add a job loss into the mix it is a disaster.
I do plan to make a site with lots of free content and resource links and have WA in there somewhere.
Should anyone have advice, comments or thoughts as to how to source content and break the nitch down I would very much appreciate it. Thank you

Hi Kyle, on Twitter I have two author accounts, one under my real name and one under a pen name, with both accounts combined I have around 8000 followers (90% of them authors - I am an author).

So, I am thinking of creating a niche for struggling authors. There are thousands, perhaps millions out there who are not getting noticed and are not making money with their books.

The other thing I thought of was teachers. A teacher has the most important job, basically, and is underpaid. A niche for something extra for teachers. What do you think? I would love to get some feedback on both ideas.

My nr. 1 is the author idea. Any thoughts?

You do not have to promote WA if you don't want to.
If you have experience and or knowledge of a particular Niche then by all means go down that road.

The lessons are worth taking for that reason alone.

In my Training Video on how to activate plugins, there are two types of plugins that are shown, the first is the All in one SEO pack and the other EWWW optimizer...But in my actual dashboard plugins there are three types of plugins. the first is the All in one SEO pack, the second is the classic editor and the third is the Kraken image optimizer. i believe its like this cause i'm a premium member!?. OK so my question is, do i need to install the EWWW image optimizer since it help increase speed by reducing image file sizes?

At 86 years young, I know a little about the retirement life. I want to direct my attention to retirees. I have two registered domain names: hotwombat.com and workfromhomeynot.com. The hotwombat name is something that has been running around in my head for years. I have used the name ‘HotWombat’ for a number of free web sites to post crossword puzzles I have constructed. They were all slanted towards learners of English. I did those years ago, and unfortunately, I have lost usernames and passwords and so, no longer have access to those web sites. I have no idea what the number of visitors were to those sites, anyway I have moved on. I have digressed, sorry. I want to build a brand for the retiree niche and think if I worked consistently with the hotwombat domain, I could brand it as ‘retiree specialist’. The other domain, workfromhomeynot, could be used for a more scattergun approach to keywords for Wealthy Affiliate.

I would love to get some feedback on my idea re how to use the two foregoing domain names.

Take care,

Hi. My dad is prediabetic and was recently advised by his doctor to start the 8 Week Blood Sugar Diet by Dr Michael Moseley. The gist of it that it is possible to completely reverse type 2 diabetes by losing weight and in particular the weight that sits around your pancreas and liver as this is what inhibits the production of insulin. Dr Michael Moseley has written a book and recipe book called the 8 Week Blood Sugar Diet that explains it all in more detail and he talks about loads of people who have used the diet to completely reverse their diabetes and come off their medication. I think this is really exciting for type 2 diabetics and definitely worth writing about. Hope that helps xx

This can certainly be the case. Not always though, but you shouldn't be adding affiliate links right away to your website either.

You want a framework of content on your website first (15-20 post) before you start apply to affiliate programs. Many affiliate programs will review your website before approval so that is why.

Yes, you want one brand but the audience can be pretty widespread within that brand. There are many ways in which you can diversify as you build out your website.

Being 86 years young I understand a lot about retirement. I was fortunate when I closed my last bricks and mortar business in 2000. My savings, together with direction from a financial advisor, has given me a reasonable standard of living. Not the best, but okay.

I look around at other retirees and realise how much better off I am than many others.

Since coming across Wealthy Affiliate, I regret not having discovered it 10 years ago. If I had, my life style would be a peg or two above what it is now.

My goal, (or at least one of them) is to intoduce Wealthy Affiliate to as many as I can as a way to build a passive income, regardless of their age, that will carry on into their retirement years.

Take care,

Hi HotWombat. I'm right behind you at 85 . But I only have a Gov. pension + a really small union pension to supliment that.

Hi, I think College Students sounds like a good idea! Have you researched the keywords etc. to check the traffic for the Niche?

I'm not sure what your other website is, but I would have one specifically for the niche you are talking about.

Not sure i have the time to aim for the 300 needed to make the conference, but would love to aim for 50 referrals in the year.

I have just completed level 1 of the training and thought i would pop over here and try and increase my knowledge on the Affiliate marketing front.

I was after some training on the appearance of my website, tweaking and changing colours, layout etc. Does anyone know when this training pops up?

Thanks, and also having a lot of fun over here. Learning is so good for the brain and soll!

I already activate EWWW Image Optimizer and then showing this.
EWWW Image Optimizer requires exec() to perform local compression. Your system administrator has disabled the exec() function, ask them to enable it.
An API key or ExactDN subscription will allow you to offload the compression to our dedicated servers instead.

But in the video just got two plugins, do I have to delete Classic Editor and Kraken Image Optimizer?Also, advice to add other plugins, should I have to add others or only activate Ewww image optimizer and all in one seo?

Thank you guys:D

Here comes the answer. :D

We are excited to let you know that the EWWW image optimizer plugin has been replaced by a much better and enterprise-level image optimizer called Kraken.io. Kraken is an outstanding paid image optimizing service that we have included in the new Server Class at Wealthy Affiliate free of charge!

We have installed the Kraken plugin and activated it on your website. Ewww image optimizer has been disabled and one of the reasons is because it requires server settings that can leave the serverless secure. As part of our continued efforts to provide the most secure servers, EWWW is no longer able to run on this new server Class with heightened security.

You will find Kraken and image optimization settings under your installed Plugins area.

I think that you will really love Kraken as an image optimization platform that is now available with your Premium membership here at WA :)

Hello everyone, I have a couple of problems with my site again. The first one is my privacy policy page. In the menu on my site it displays the privacy page plus the entire content of the page in the menu. It doesn't just say privacy policy. I don't know where I went wrong. second how do I refresh the page I am working on? If anyone can help me, I would really appreciate it. thank you all

Hi Kattdell,

First to refresh your page you can either press F5 or if using Chrome next door to the Home Icon to the left of the URL there is a small arrow type icon you click there and that will also refresh the page.

As for the content being displayed rather than just the name of the page it would really be down to the configuration of the menu being set up. If you like send me your website address and I will happily look more for you.

Another question again, if you are targeting let’s say a group of prisoners who wants to make money online, and off course your niche is the make money online niche’’ and then your website is

mybe ‘’ DONE DEAL AFFILIATE’’ You want to write an article on a keyword like ‘’affiliate marketing training free’’. How do you target this specific group of prisoners or people with undesirable jobs and people with Undesirable Jobs?

How do you build your content or website towards that specific chosen direction because everyone has a direction per the training?
Thank you.

Hi Kyle, please for some time now, something has been happening to my website that I don't understand.

I started out with Wealthy Affiliate in November 2018. Paid my first $19 but after the first month, I couldn't afford the second subscription. So, my account was blocked and my first website deleted.

When I resubscribed on 15 Match 2019, I created a new website with the same domain name and reposted all the old contents. While I was posting the contents, I got a pop-up message saying that ''the content I am trying to post is detected as PLAGIARIZED''.

So, I contacted ERIC CANTOU and he told me that, since I am the original author of the contents, there is no problem, that google will index them with time.

So, I went ahead and posted all of them and added new contents as well.

It took over three months for some of the contents to start getting indexed and when it finally did, the old once were not getting indexed yet, and are still are not indexed. The new once are getting indexed.

Meanwhile, when I first started last year November, it took just weeks for 9 out of 12 contents to get indexed, but this time around it took over three months. What happened?

And as I write to you, I have 42 articles posted but not up to 30 is indexed.

I want to find out if there is anything wrong. Is there something I am not doing right that can be a problem to my rankings?

I have tried asking the community but couldn't get any reasonable response. Please talk to me. This is the fourth month running out and yet no record of ranking or what is happening. I need to know.

Waiting to hear from you.
Yenge Eric.

Hi

Can I canvas opinions please on my proposed direction for my website to promote Wealthy Affiliate? I would like to help people who want to create a better work-life balance and to find financial freedom. In particular, I would like to help mums who are struggling to find well paid part time jobs to fit around looking after their children, especially those who had a professional or well paid full time job before having kids. I have many friends in the UK in this position.

Hi angela!

What are some of the things you do as a stay at home mom?
maybe make a list of those things first and find ways you can help others with that thing you chose.

the good thing about wealthy affiliate is it can be promoted whichever angle you decide to take.

ex: help other stay at home moms ( like myself ) set up blogs and suggest wealthy affiliate to help them get started and you not only help but you also make money doing so.

win win for everyone......

Im new myself btw. so I understand your frustration, just try and be patience with yourself.

Maybe just an idea

since you work 50 hours at your current position and you have been doing this for a while, examine skills you use there.

maybe there is something in your daily work that you can help others with, then find a way( product or service) related to that you can monetize from.

We are similar in our desires.

I worked 40 + hours in customer service... I hated it but I did learn how to help frustrated people and has become better at solving problems.

My niche is making money on-line and I plan to make to make a income from W/A.

I am just starting like you so I dont have a success story beside the success I felt from starting.

But I can say I have a better direction from going through the training.

Wish you well Love!

So the article mentioned stay-at-home moms as one of the targets. I'm a stay at home mom of 4, 5 and under, and I'm always being asked how I do it explicitly since my husband only makes $2,000 a month and we don't feel poor.
So I'm wondering if I should start a blog on how I do it all, call it Poor Mom Hacks or something like that, and promote WA on there.

way2insane Premium
Possibly?
Not quite sure what you are asking.
Are you asking bout using this process to name your website?
Absolutely do that... It will help your niche website to rank quite a bit faster/better than simply picking a whimsical or a name that is only somewhat related to your niche market.

However, from a branding perspective, having a unique name (think of apple computers or Xerox) will allow you to develop ownership. Though going the branding route will take longer to gain traction within that niche. But even then, there is no guarantee that your brand will become "THE" brand associated within that niche.
But that isn't necessarily a bad thing either. Just think of all the various brand that come to mind when you think of "Android Phone".
Hope the above answers your question... I'll be around if it doesn't.

I am interested in building website better and perhaps helping somebody to built theirs. When you said share affiliate link with people it mean we post it on our social media or can we post it on forum. About the banner can i post the link on any of my website or has to be specific website for that.

I’m a bit confused lol...I understand that we are trying to get referrals. I’ve read some that are focusing more on the affiliates, but I guess my question is do you have multiple websites? Like one that you are making profit or commissions off of products and another that you are targeting people to get them to sign up? Or both? I’m so confused. And can you do multiple sites targeting different interests? Say I wanna focus on baby items as well as workout supplements and such. Obviously those two don’t go together so would you do two different websites for that? And what about the referral part? I’m sorry I know that’s a lot but I am Confused but ready to get started and not sure which direction I’m going.

Hi Jennifer
You've only been here a few days so plenty of time to get up and running.
Don't get overwhelmed by it all.

The training really is step by step and you get started on the first course - Online Certification - and fully understand one step before moving on to the next.
You get stuck you ask questions and keep asking until all is clear.
Of course the best place for a quick answer is in Live Chat.
just jump in there and there will always be someone who has the right answer.

You can always send a private message to people such as myself who have been around the block and also been members for a few years.

I would advise you to start with one Niche and promote products within that Niche.

Once you have that website actually making you some money then you can perhaps building another site in another Niche.

I would also suggest you start with something you have experience and/or knowledge off and that way you will be able to write articles with some authority and that will come across in your articles.

people do like to see that the articles they are reading have been written by someone who actually knows what they are talking about.

This builds up trust and trust is all-important.

If you have a Niche with that all-important experience and/or knowledge of then start with that and you do not have to promote WA to get referrals if you don't want to.

The Bootcamp is aimed at getting referrals for WA but it is also good training on how to become and affiliate and shows you what to do.

Onwards and Upwards and have a great Thursday.

I was told if our site isn't a site that deals with something related to WA I shouldn't promote it on it so I haven't done anything with WA yet because I wasn't sure what to do? This is telling me to put a review for WA on my site.

Is your site about Wealthy Affiliate.

If it isn't then there is no need to publish a review about wealthy affiliate.

Taking the Bootcamp does not mean you have to promote WA.

The Bootcamp lessons are about how to be an affiliate and it is aimed at promoting WA but you can take the lessons as showing you how to be an affiliate for any Niche and not just the Work From Home one.

You Do Not Have To Promote Wealthy Affiliate.

Therefore you do NOT have to write a review about WA.

Hi - if you’re asking which of the 1,000+ Website themes to choose from I don’t think it matters much. You could stick with the example Kyle uses “Hero” or any of the others. I put
‘Blog” in the search field and selected one of those. The sheer number of themes can be overwhelming for sure but it also allows your site to be a bit more unique.

I am assuming most of your traffic is driven to your website through paid traffic, versus SEO. To get ranked, you will want to have adequate content and useful content at that within your niche.

There are PLENTY of things that you can discuss and help your smartwatch audience out with.

When I go to do research on a given niche to come up with concepts for keywords (and ultimately content), I ask a few questions of my niche.

**What are some products/services that people are purchasing in your niche?
**What are some questions they are asking?
**What are some problems they are having?
**What are some "how to's" that are useful?
**What are some trending topics in your niche?

Do some research, in could be as simple as a Google search to uncover a lot of these items. I personally start off my keyword research using this technique: This will open your doors to essentially unlimited ideas and concepts, from there you can plug in these keywords into the keyword/research platform that is available to you here at WA. Hope this helps you out here Paul!

Hi guys. I am having some issues with my site, they are:

1. when I login to my site I see the word 'Edit" under both my about me post and my privacy policy page. Does this mean someone visiting my site can make changes to those documents?

2. I published a review of wealthy affiliate a little over a week ago and to date it does not appear on my site. I thought that immediately after you publish it would appear on the site.

3. I am on the first task in the 2nd phase of the Bootcamp. I have written another review as my second post and need to add some images, where can I find appropriate images?

4. My second post is a Jaaxy Review, what affiliate link should I put for persons to click on?

5. I purchased a domain name, however, I do not see my name appearing at the top of the page, instead it says 'Howdy Admin'. Why so?

I would be grateful for some help please.
Reply
winnieyoong Premium
1. You most likely see the word edit because you're logged into the website as an admin. Try opening your page using another browser or use chrome in incognito mode. The 'edit' link shouldn't show anymore.

2. Once published, it should appear on your site immediately. Do you mean that it didn't show up on your navigation menu? You can access your page anytime using the URL on top of your WordPress editor. (Refer to attachment)

3. You can find images by googling 'royalty free stock images' Some of the websites i like to go to is pexels, pixabay and unsplash.

5. Your domain name should show on the URL bar. Howdy Admin is your admin menu, try clicking on it and you will know what i'm talking about. If you're talking about the words on top left corner, next to the home and wordpress icon, that's a site title, you can edit it at Appearance > Customize > Site identity > Site Title

Contribution: I have a big space in my heart to offer assistance to the aging population by providing training (Online marketing), products (Developed specifically for the elderly), services (Assistance and help) and valuable information (Topical to them).

My obvious first challenge is that they are not on the internet at the audience level of other demographics. How do I reach them??

Passion's: I'm an actor, part of why this is important to me is to succeed at a level that allows me to train, audition, and perform basically all the time.

I'm a sports lover. I play and have coached successfully.
Basketball is my first love. Also would love to become active in the health and fitness niche.

Hi, After all this time I have been online I still haven't worked out a niche to work with there are so many things I am interested in but I want to be a master of only one eventually. I'd like a niche helping older people to do this affiliate thing as the way pensions are me and them are going to need some help. Veronica.

Master of ONE will lead to the most success...the reality is though once you become a master within one, you will understand the process and the formula for success in enough detail that you will be able to diversify and build out your business in many different niches. :)

Hi Veronica,
Keep your head up. I was stuck for a minute on finding mine as well. In fact even when I thought I had one I got feedback to help me even tighten that niche.
If you haven't seen this already. I would encourage you to watch it. It's Kyle's video on How to Become and Expert in Any niche. It really was a helpful resource to supplement what is in the main training track. Check it out.

Would creating business cards be a waste of time and money?
On a random note I officially have my own website. My goal is once I get this down O will create the other websites that are ideas in my head. I am excited! And I didn't have to she'll out $3000. Awesome!
To those of you just starting, stick with it and go at your own pace. And really consider premium membership,it is really a tremendous value!

That is absolutely the case. We are the most cost efficient, yet most advanced platform in the industry. This is definitely something that we are proud of here at WA.

So wonderful to have you here as part of the family and I really look forward to working with you!

I agree. I want to shout it from the rooftops "Don't waste your money!" There is something better and everyone supports each other and is really nice! I would love to promote WA but do not have a clue as to how to go about it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciative.

can we add video and sound clips a lot of my potential referrals have sound bites that they create and advertise some have videos showing products they create like clothes sneakers etc. so they would need to add different features so that potential customers can view or listen to content independently before making a decision to take action Thank you.

Sure, you are going to be able to add videos to your website. I wouldn't add gimmicky stuff though, when a walkthrough or useful "pitch" video makes sense, you can add that.

I would add stuff that doesn't make functional sense though.

I messed up !!!! My domain name is "all-entreprenuers.siterubix.com" but the name of my website is "The Disabled Entrepreneur". The training says the domain name and the website title should be the same. Oh and by the way, my niche is the disabled entrepreneur. Can anyone tell me how to rectify this problem ??

Have you only just created the website?

Do you have any content on it?
If so you can save it first.

Then all you have to do is delete it and start again with your new name.

To do this -

You click on Websites on the left of your screen
Then Site Manager.

Find your Site.

Over on the far right you will see the word - Details

Click on that and scroll down the page and you will see the words - Delete This Website

My niche is in Affiliating Marketing. I know in my heart there is success in this niche. However, I do not want to make mistakes but learn from the best and genuine affiliate marketers unlike soooooo...many others out there who promises, gets you pumped up, and presto...it costs an arm and a leg to join. So what is a good direction to begin with and I like the brand name Genuine Affiliate.
What do you think?
