Welcome to the Affiliate Bootcamp!

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

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

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

Who Am I & Why Do I Care?

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

That is my absolute focus with you. Success.

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

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

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

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

The WA Affiliate Program, It's Awesome!

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

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

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

A few important menus I want you to understand. The first is the "$" 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
$359/year, Commission = $87.50 recurring

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Task 1: Add Your Affiliate Goals!

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

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

Add your goals here within the following thread.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

DISCUSSION: Vegas 2018. It was big. Vegas 2019 Will Be BIGGER!

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

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.

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.

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

You want your keyword to meet the following criteria:

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

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

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

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

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

Hope this helps you out Arturo!

Hi Everyone!

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

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

Thank you in advance.
John

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

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Many thanks.

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

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

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

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



Thank you all and have a nice day.

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

Hope this makes it clearer for you.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

With that being said my niche is bringing facts to my community about the corrupt justice system and programming(which we lack) for at risk teens.

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

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

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

Hi Virginia,

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

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

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

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

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

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

I want to help people that ______________.

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

Im a little stuck when it comes to niche.

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

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

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

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

thoughts please

and thank you in advance

Wow, awesome job and super amazing. It's wonderful to hear stories like these because they are such an encouragement.

I, too, have had the problem of which niche to choose as have many people I would think. I am focusing on the aspect of affiliate marketing with those that don't have work or have been out of work for awhile because it gives me the opportunity to help with the healing process that can happen due to being out of work.

I look forward to hearing of your success here on WA also.

I relate to your struggles of creating the perfect niche. All of your topic/ideas are great. If there were a way to break the positive attitude down from all your skills and history, I think that would be a great niche. Then you could build your website using all your talents in some manner steering them toward ways to become a positive influence.
Blessings and Good Luck!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

best of luck and thanks for making my day

So I have a domain I was originally going to use with Kindle Publishing as an author page. It is my name.com and has lots of activity built up with lots of activity from Pinterest, LinkedIn, and Instagram. I would love to use it to build a brand as an author and marketer. All of the future kindle books would be pointing to that as well as the sites that are already bringing traffic.

What do you think about that idea? I hate to waist it and my folders on Pinterest are already designed around making money online and affiliate marketing.

Also... I've really struggled lately with how my website "looks"... should I just try to get "passed that?" until I'm actually getting traffic?

Or would it motivate me more to have a site I'm really proud of to get traffic coming my way?

Maybe its not that easy... and I should just work on both slowly and iteratively.

Thoughts?

Hey Bret,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hi Todd
I just finished reading your review on Thrive Themes. I was very impressed.

I read about Thrive Themes in someone else's website and have wanted to look into them for quite awhile. After reading your review, I am going to definitely look at Thrive.

I even took the time to watch the video you provided. You really put in a lot of effort in creating your review. I hope other members appreciate the info about this particular theme you have provided as much as I do.

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

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

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

Does that sound like a good direction?

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thank you guys for any inputs!

You have a broad list of topics above. Each one, really, could be a niche. I suggest you narrow down to start - maybe with kitchen equipment as it would be fairly easy to monetize. I only suggest this because it will be harder to get your website ranked as an authority site if you start too general. You can always add pages and subdomains later, or use the other topics as post ideas.

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

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

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

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

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

I will promote WA to people like me that hate to work 7-16 every day, without a degree, but still capable and knowledgeable enough to make it here. I will do my site in Swedish at first I think but I don't know yet for sure. Its hard to research in other languages because the services aren't as great as jaaxy. If someone knows how to use Jaaxy with other languages, please let me know.

Since you can write in English too, why don't you create a multi language site and reach more people instead of limiting your site to those who know Swedish.

In any niche, you always room to have your fair share of the market. Of course there are competitive niche but there are always sub niches within that niche that you can enter and be different from others. When you are talking about affiliate marketing + free traffic, you have to be ready to spend a lot of time initially to build up your site. Even you create your site in Swedish only. With a bit investment, there are plugin that can translate your Swedish site to English almost automatically. Definitely this is possible - just don't limit your thinking.

All the best.

I got some feedback on my website questioning this and I am concerned that it does not comply. It was from technical support from my theme provider, very kind of then to give that kind of feedback.

I'm currently working a full time day job that I'm not really dissatisfied with, however, I would like to make money on the side own my own terms. I'm leaning towards other people in my same situation as my target audience.

I would be targeting people who currently have full time employment, but want to make side money online from home. Any insight or potential warnings about this niche?
Reply
Davan Premium
I can relate, I used to be in a similar situation. So many people know exactly where you're coming from and your story would definitely resonate with them.

As for the niche showing people a way out of their day jobs for an online experience. It's a great one but very competitive. But don't let that stop you mate, there are a million and one ways to push your message home.

In order to achieve success you have to be resilient in your desired space, so go for it.

I'd recommend talking to people in your immediate circle about your online venture, friends etc, about what you're set out to achieve, this can even lead to potential clients.

Good luck mate.

As someone who is disabled my target audience will be others who are also facing physical and mental challenges, as well as their caregivers. Very few families with a disabled member have sufficient income so I believe this will be a good audience.

However, a few months ago I wrote a blog post about earning income online and did not get any comments. I question if this was just the fact I have a small readership or if I have selected the wrong audience--at least to begin with. Or, if it was my approach to the subject--something I hope to remedy through this course.

I appreciate any insights fellow WA members have.

The "earning money online" niche is highly competitive, and I'm sure you had a killer post.

However it does sound like your disabled target audience would be more engaged with your content as they can resonate to you.

I can't seem to pick a good keyword or words to promote WA that isn't used a million times already. I have my own site and that seemed easier. I am stuck on this one. I have tried google search bar and Jaaxy but can't seem to come up with something unique but also relevant. Help please!

I haven't started promoting WA yet as I'm in the process of building out my site for that specifically. But I can give you a few ideas for keywords that I have been using to promote other Affiliate Products/Programmes.

Like you said, good keywords for promoting WA have been used probably millions of times.

What I tend to do in my campaigns is target the same audience but with slightly different worded keywords such as.

-Passive income ideas for 2018
-Part time online jobs/hustles that can earn you $$$ per month.
-Online jobs to substitute your income

Just to name a few, these are all variations of the same thing. Affiliate marketing/making money online etc.

Hope this gets your creative juices flowing.

My plans for making it to Las Vagus are 1. website creation 2. follow little Mama training course and read all of Jerry and Robert A post. 3. ask questions and not be shy about asking for help. 4. start writing content every day. My goal will be to start at 500 words per day and work up 1000 per day. These goals will increase when family time is less intense. My reality is I have a very ill husband to care for. I will be working late at night as he sleeps.

If my Niche is going to be baby products. Like carseat stroller combos, ect... Should I narrow my website name down to one specific baby product or can I have my website have multiple brands and multiple baby products? My target audience is moms because being a mom myself I know the constant need for baby products and trying new things! Helping moms to find the best products is my goal? Any ideas for my actual Niche name? Website name?

You have the right idea, most baby products compliment each other and being a mum yourself you know exactly what your target audience needs and wants are.

As for the name of your site, make it your own, something that says you're a mum proud to be helping other mums. If I was a mum I'd resonate with that.

Ok I think I may have said mum too much. Good luck

Thanks for the lesson, it was loud and crystal clear even though I had a little bit of difficulty with my content having a lot of "my" which needed to be changed to "by", and when I did change them to the suggested word , the whole sentence made no sense at all. So I had to reconstruct the whole sentence. Nevertheless, I made it at the end of the day, and Google indexed my "About Me" page.

I just started here and I am not sure that the direction I am contemplating on heading even has a niche market. As I am very interested in the food industry I wanted to do something related to the different food cultures. At the same time I am also very invested in things like the Doomsday vault and De-extinction and wanted to go towards in that direction. Any suggestions on how I should go about this is very welcome.

hello and welcome
what I would do if I'm understanding what you are saying is that I would start small and when you get the hang of it, then you will have room to grow and build.
So I would just start out with the food and beverage industry and watch it grow then move onto the next task.

This is great training!

I created a site and a niche that im 100% focused on. Now reading this, I'm thinking about promoting WA on my site.

My question is, could you combine an entirely different niche (electronics) website already set up and promote WA?

Or

Would it just be wise to build an entirely new site from the ground up and promote WA through there?

Thanks
Jose
Reply
Kyle Premium
You never want to combine different niches into ONE website, and you should avoid trying to manage a bunch of different websites when starting out.

Focus on just ONE website and create success with that before diversifying and creating multiple niche websites.

It only takes ONE website in one niche to be very successful online. I usually find that folks that try to do too much at once (focus on several niche websites) end up in a state of mediocrity because it can be overwhelming and you don't really ever become the expert in just one niche.

It is the experts (specialists) that create long term, successful businesses in any niche.

Hi Rich,
Regardless of where you purchase a domain name, you will always be able to "point" that domain to your hosting. This will always be the case, no matter where either was purchased.

If you upgrade, you will keep the same account and a new world of training and community access will be available.

We actually have a "Move" feature that you will see right within the SiteManager.

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites

You can move any domain to any domain hosted here at WA. For example, if you wanted to move your Siterubix website to a domain that you have purchased, then it is a very simple process.

The "Move" feature also handles for all proper redirects and SEO, it will transfer your site in its entirety and it is as simple as a few clicks. See attached screenshot for what I am referring to here.

And as mentioned, the members area is the same, but you have access to absolutely everything, with more technology, training, support, features, and general access.

So I have been interested in affiliate marketing for a long time. But the main problem was that I could not find a good course like this one to learn everything, so I would like to first thank you for making it!
Second, because I have been looking around for a long time I have also learned how to make a website with an affiliate system myself. I am a web designer but I like to make projects that makes a passive income.. so my question is, if one day I would make a simple website with a product that I can sell and connect an affiliate system to it. Can I tell people here that they can also sell this product?

realityshifter Premium
Without getting into the details and pinpoint accuracy, just remember that if you are a premium member and you are able to refer or encourage people to become premium members through your WA link, you get approximately a commission of 50% of what they pay. Never mind about the other scaled down commissions that will just blur your understanding. You surely are after the big buck anyway so just focus on the 50% commission to motivate you.

Reply
CristianoB Premium
No not at all, with the way that affiliate links work, you only need the link itself to get up and going. However you distribute it is truly up to you, whether thats through email marketing, social media or some other means. The member need only discover WA by clicking your link for you to get the credit. Personally I HIGHLY reccommend building an authoratative website and using that to push your link "reach" but if you already have a following somewhere or sway in a relative community then by all means, website isnt the only way to go.
Reply
kurnazer Premium
If you want to promote WA, I believe you just need to send visitors to WA through your affiliate link, so no website is needed. But without a website/blog you are limiting yourself on how you can promote WA. More than that your campaign will not very effective because if you send visitors to WA and it is their first time most likely they will not sign up at WA. So having a website is not an absolute must but it is also very important.

Yes, you can build any type of website you like here. By hard to leave, what specifically do you mean. People will leave your website if your content is not interesting, and your content is not relevant.

Themes will not always look the same when you preview them (before you install them) versus when you actually start using them as there are features, images, etc. that can change the look of your website.

Not to worry at all here though, that is quite normal and as you build out your website, the design and look will evolve as you create content.

With 30 years in the D2D universe I was able to notice the baby boomer demographic as a strong category to dive into. I think this category offers a tremendous opportunity with the right messaging, services and product line that gravitates to the 50-70 age group. I can’t help to notice that regardless of many of them living on a fix retirement income, a great number of his group is always seeking alternatives ways of a secondary income. So, I’m thinking in refining and simplifying the need of this niche, since many of them remain open to income opportunities. Some good feedback, and ideas are greatly welcomed.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Don't over think the demographics, rather choose your brand.

When you choose a domain, you are going to want to choose something that is "brandable" versus something that has keywords within it. The reason this is the case is because as you build out your website, you can target as many keywords as you like within the content (that is how you will rank).

I have created a discussion here outlining the process and what to look for when choosing a domain name: This should help you out here and if you ever want to run any domains by me, simply let me know and I will give you some feedback.

I think you are on the correct path, most definitely there is lots of opportunity for the recent grad from high school or college. If they can grasp and understand the opportunity that's before them. I say all that because I have a 23-year-old that’s taken me a long time to convince and cultivate him to understand that if he knew what I know now, he would be jumping all over the opportunity of any online business and social media world. The idea would be to get a small group of them going, and I guess the rest would just follow along the way, and not to mention, the effortlessness this age group has to understand today's digital universe, they are probably way ahead of any other age group in today's world. I think you are on to something promising my friend…..

Hi everyone, i would like to create a website comparing way to make money online. Over the last couple year i have been trying different thing trying to achieve this goal without real success (have spent more than i earn so far lol ). The goal of this website would be get referral to W.A. and maybe to other website. My question is, are bootcamp and entrepreneur both show the same skill, that is to create a website. Or are they completely different ? If i do the bootcamp first, will it be easier to do the entrepreneur after ? I guess my real question is really, is there a preferred order to do the training, (for example, Bootcamp first and then do the entrepreneur or vice versa) ? Let me know what are you though.

If you want to promote WA and work within the "make money niche" (which it sounds like), go through the Affiliate Bootcamp training. If you want to build a business within another niche, head through the Get Started Here training.

Focus on just one though. You are going to be much more successful if you focus on one business/website versus trying to do too many things at once. You can always diversify down the road.

Hope this helps you out here Alex!

So to combine this all together I have as a niche:
"Home business for baby boomers about to retire"

And I will promote this with my content value, helping people in this niche to become aware of "WA" avenues to earn online.

Kyle, thanks for the list, I saw so many niches to combine and use, it was a toss up. As I started to do the

"Home business for millenials with Undesirable Jobs"
Maybe, that will be my next niche site, so much to choose fm

My site is "I See You!". My brand is video baby monitors. My target is parents of infant childern. My theme is "create and hand down a video memory of the moments that fly by far too quickly." I plan to build a relationship and a group of parents who hand down the records of their infants life to their offspring. From generation to generation.

Hey Mark, I love your idea- how about Peek-a-boo? Little bit more child friendly.

Yes, if you are heading in that direction you will want to go through the OEC training. That is certainly a niche though.

I've come to grief trying to create Wordpress sites before and at first glance this appears to be no different, but that is because I don't know where it is going or what the planned stages are.

The first issue is the theme, not knowing which one or ones are most suitable for promoting WA, which is what I'm expecting this will teach me. I would expect to create a landing page with some sort of offer followed by an email capture page then a thank you page which links to my website where I can discuss the benefits of WA.

So once I had followed the instructions and created a site (after much time spent trying to select a suitable theme), I thought I had to immediately add relevant content by amending the existing posts and trying to create suitable landing page content only to be told in the next video to delete the posts and that I woiuld be continually adding content to the website, not something I would expect to do for a landing page.

So can someone please give me an idea of the plan, so in future I'm not trying to jump ahead and waste time trying to do things that are going to be explained later.

Don't overthink the process. 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: You can always shift to a new and more complex theme down the road, but I recommend keeping things simple when starting out. It is your content that will rank, get traffic, and convert. Not the bells and whistles within a theme.

Hi, friends after all these eye opening trainings in Boot-camp affiliate, I have decided to target new graduates who are seeking employments ,either as/ to be, self-employees or formal employees.I would therefore appreciate help in identifying the niche in such a market, even in giving such a niche a name.

Hey Kyle, I was on the Keyword research part of the bootcamp, I think I may have found an untapped niche. But I wanted to ask about the quotations around the search phrase as you showed in the picture. You'll see in the picture I attached below that without quotes, it has a hell of a lot more competition. Although the search volume stays the same.

Yes, that is a huge audience. There is a lot of people with criminal records, that are wonderful people, but companies are very much against and have policies against hiring folks with a record.

You can help them out, and building a business online is certainly one way to create an income.

Hello everyone!

We are creating a new website about family..things you can do to spend time with your loved ones.. This is more for kids, but also some topics about parents, including grandparents.. our target audience for this bootcamp training would be more of parents and grandparents who want extra income..is this too broad? do we still need to refine this?

Your reply would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you..

Jacy

Hai, I am planning to target people who are interested in 'passive income'.
Have a name in mind for my website (passive potential) and plan to make the content a bit broader, ways to utilize the possibilities for a human that they get in their life.

Can you give me an indication of your thoughts about this?

Thanks for the attention!

Hi Everyone,

My Niche is Travel, my family travels a lot. Family traveling for many reasons and finding places to visit, dining and and exploring cultures and meeting people is important to me and my family. Just taking every advice I need here at WA, so far Im learning so much I have to go back and read, watch and do! My goal to read, Watch the videos and just do it! One step at a time...

What aspect of the travel niche do you want to help people with? There are literally 1,000's of niches within these categories and you will want to narrow it down. Where specifically? What type of travel? What aspect of travel?

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

I want to help people that ______________.

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

I have a couple of ideas on targeting my audience, but will choose one for now. Just want to take it one step at time.
My target audience is for those that are looking for 'Money Making Strategies', I know is more of a general audience. However, I want to know if I'm in the right direction?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Absolutely that can work. Money making strategies can be a niche, with that brand you could start more narrow and then you could diversify with time.

Hey I could use some help refining my niche, if you asked me my niche I would say it's...

Building funnels around affiliate marketing and getting traffic using Instagram marketing

My audience is aspiring affiliate marketers who work a 9-5.

My brand is Funnelmentals

Any tips on how to make sense of this? Or am I on the right path?

I am still busy with OCE training and already registered a domain wilkayaffiliate.com with niche Baby Monitors. I want this domain as my brand.

Now that I am busy with Affiliate Bootcamp training, I want to use the same "brand" or domain to promote Wealthy Affiliate as an economic freedom (or home) for all retirees.

Please let me know if I can keep my "brand" and if the direction that I want to go as well as the target group can go through.

I appreciate your help in this regard.

Thank you

William

I think that brand actually makes much more sense with a bootcamp related site, so you can certainly use this for your bootcamp.

Just don't try to target both audiences within one website, choose one or the other.

Hi Kyle

Thank you very much. I appreciate. Yes, I will target only one audience.

We will keep in touch.

My questions:

1. The websites that we create, are they meant to be mostly blog post? For example, the way I made it to WA was through a blog review about another affiliate marketing platform.

2. I am a paramedic firefighter and a deputy sheriff. Can I use this to target an audience?

Your website can be what you want it to be. The dividing line is quite fine as blog and post are interchangeable. Just write quality content to attract visitors to your natural friendly manner.

Say you write an engaging post, advising folks what to do if a bush fire threatens them, (yes these can be niches). Within that you can informally promote some safety ideas and devices.

The advise content is a blog and the ideas and devices within it, can be your income focus.

If Florida is similar to Australia you could include fire plans that you do for your visitors! I did my own before licenses were required. I set it all out, talked to the Fire Brigade's area manager and had it approved in half a day. By the time others wanted me to do it, licences were required. Even for a simple one that revealed that a property had no significant risk, $1,000 was the base price.

Good luck in whatever you choose for your niche.

The best way to write a really good review it to start. That is not meant to be funny, really just get something down, get a structure and few photos and express you view of the product. Remember you can always come back and review your posts after they have been published. DO IT.

What specific problem are you having?

If it is generating ideas, think about what you are interested in and how it can help people. People tend to go to the internet to find information. That is your website's job, to provide valuable and honest information. This can be done in a review of a given product, if that is what your intentions are.

If you haven't gone through the training, then do that first. The affiliate bootcamp training seemed to clarify things for me better. The biggest thing you should be thinking of when finding your niche is answer the question Who?, What?, When?, Where?, and Why?

Also, there are several different training pages here in WA on keyword searches. As you go through the training, they will become more clear on how to use keywords.

Hope this helps.

I did it and I'm terrified!!! I just published my first WA review and it was the most stressful thing I have done (okay, a little melodramatic there)! Seriously, it just seemed like you have so much riding on that review and of course, you don't want to mess anything up. Did anybody else feel that way or is just my over sensitive doubting self that is driving up my anxiety level?? :<(

I have finally finished my Wealthy Affiliate Review today and it is finally published.

It has been a difficult journey as it has taken a least a month for me to prepare the content, write it and publish it.

It has been a great learning curve with many obstacles, which I have tried, by trial and error to overcome. I am now looking forward to continue with my training and learning more.

Thanks to Dale for his help with my buttons!

That's great! Progress is so important, and sometimes the journey can teach us more about ourselves than reaching our destination. Reaching goals states "we can do it"!

I hear you. I really have struggled with writing a WA review because frankly, I'm new and as much as I love WA and am so thankful we found each other, I don't want to put anything out there that would be a detriment to the company, or to my future for that matter. I also tend to go on and on so I need to cut my "chatter" down a little or my review will turn into the "Life and Times" of my life!! :-) Good luck and so glad you got it out there!
