Google, heard of it?

If you are like me, you rely on Google for pretty much everything, from research, to product reviews, to solutions to problems. Google has billions of users, actively using their search engine every day to find stuff.

Introducing Search Engine Optimization...

Our goal with our website, in particular in the first 6-12 months with it is to get lots of rankings in Google (and other search engines) and to do so for FREE.

This is accomplished through what is called Search Engine Optimization (SEO), which is something that you are going to become very knowledgeable with in a short period of time. You are going to learn how you can show up in Google, get traffic, and generate a lot of revenue as a result.

I have created a video walking you through the fundamentals of a successful SEO ready website and I also show you how to set-up your All in One SEO plugin, which is going to be the framework for getting your website prepared for SEO.


DISCUSS VIDEO: Setting Up Your Website for Search Engines

SEO is NOT Rocket Science.

People tend to overthink SEO and think there is MORE to it than there actually is. Part of the problem is that there is so much misinformation online about SEO.

I can tell you, first hand, it is not rocket science. You don't need backlinks, you don't need to know some random secret, you don't need PBN's (if you don't know what that is, don't worry) and you don't need to be an expert author.

There are a few basic components to SEO that are going to be our focus as we move you through the training. I am going to give you a quick overview of these, not to add to complexity or overwhelm you, but rather add simplicity.

  • Initial Website SEO Set-Up (which we will be covering today)
  • Keyword Selection
  • Content Length
  • Content Structure
  • Engagement
  • Social Elements
  • Time (Authority)

Frankly, wipe clean your SEO knowledge. You are going to be learning how to rank not just now, but for years to come as you move through the Bootcamp training. It is in my best interest to see you succeed with your SEO and I want you to see results!

The Incredible, Long Term Opportunity With SEO.

SEO is a long term traffic opportunity that is not going anywhere. As more people come online and more people spend time online, they are searching for things at a higher rate than ever.

The average person performs over 130 searches per month in Google, and Google is currently getting over 3.5 BILLION searches per day. And that is just Google.

That is traffic that YOU can leverage. With 3.75 BILLION people active online, it is going to be your job to intercept people through "search terms" (keywords) that they enter in Google, build trust through helping them, then make a recommendation of products and services.

In the case of your Affiliate Bootcamp website, Wealthy Affiliate will be one of the websites that you can recommend and earn a great deal of income with.

People simply are not going to stop searching, in fact, as people become more and more connect with MORE devices, the number of daily searches only goes up. This creates an incredible and very much growing opportunity for you as an affiliate marketer.

Task 1: Set Up Your Website Up For SEO

Your first task today is going to be setting up your website for SEO success. You are going to be doing this through the All in One SEO plugin, which we activated within the last lesson.

This lesson we are going to be updating the General Settings. To do this, you are going to find All in One SEO from the main menu or from the Plugins menu, and click on the "General Settings" menu item (as shown below)

From there, you are going to go directly to the "Home Page Settings" section. This is where we are going to be adding our website title and description for search engines.

This will NOT be visible to people that visit your site, it will be the title and description of your website when it shows up in a Google search.

Home Title: This should be the brand name of your website, followed by additional text to make it more captivating. In my case, I made this title:

Real Deal Affiliate - Affiliate Marketing Uncut

I think this is captivating and speaks to my audience well as my sort of "motto", but I can quite easily change this down the road. So don't fret if you make a mistake here or you are not 100% in love with your title.

Ideal Title Character Count: 45-55

Home Description: This should explain briefly what your website is about and how you plan on helping people. Who is your site dedicated to helping and how do you plan on helping them out. In my case, I made my description:

With over 15 years experience online, Real Deal Affiliate is a site dedicated to helping aspiring and already successful affiliate marketers online.

Again, if you have a spelling mistake or you are not 100% happy with your description, you can update this at any time.

Ideal Description Character Count: 140-160

After you have done this, continue scrolling down to the Keyword Settings section. Make sure your settings look the same as mine. You don't really have to think too much about the "Keyword Settings" section here other than making it look like what I have here.


Then scroll down to the very bottom of the settings page and you will see a blue "Update Options" button.

Click that and you are good to go! Your website is now set-up for search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo!

**Note: You do not need to "Upgrade to Pro" with your All in One Plugin. The free version is more than sufficient for what you need here. Many plugins have optional upgrades for more features and you will typically be more than fine with the free versions.

Building the website was fun! The hardest task was choosing the theme. Since it is to be a wellness site, I wanted it to look serene and peaceful. Choosing a domain name worked out great and here it is: livingwithfibromyalgiadailyoilsblog.com I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in November of 2016 and since the pain from that condition and arthritis had pretty much forced me to call it quits as far as working in a regular office, I can now help people with this life draining disease by sharing what I've learned with tips in my blog.

My target market is people that want to make money from anywhere. More specifically, people who want to travel full time. My wife and I have been traveling by RV for 2 1/2 years and it is amazing. We have recurring revenue from another business however we still need to be available to people from time to time. Affiliate marketing can provide a more passive income stream. BTW, as I write this, we are outside Big Bend National Park where we will be spending 30 days before moving further north for this summer.

what a lovely way to spend life and easy when you can pick up and stop when you need to do work and catch up with clients online and the wealthy affiliate marketing can bring in a little more that's even better for you it's an easy way to keep the cash flow going but working at what you want as well.

Thanks Tracey. It really is a great way to live. I feel my core message will resonate with people that want to live a nomadic as well as those who do not. I say this because when we meet people all the time that ask were we are from. When I tell them we travel full time, the one thing I notice time and again is how they get this amazing look in their eyes just imagining what that must feel like to have that type of freedom. In fact, it just happened yesterday. We were in Big Bend National Park. We came upon a gentleman that was sitting bench enjoying the view. He casually asked where we were from. I replied for the next month, we're from right here because we travel full time. It was fun to see the wheels turning in his head imagining what that would be like.

My Affiliate Goals in terms of Referrals.
Today I kick started my Boot Camp training. Yesterday marked my six months here at Wealthy Affiliate. And I think I am ready to go here. I have total of 408 starter Referrals and 2 premium Referrals. With this training I am aiming to increase my total Referrals to 1000 in the next six months of my training and accomplishment here at WA.

The Las Vegas Conference in 2020!
Making to the Las Vegas Conference is anybody's game here at WA. I dedicated my first year member at WA to training and building and networking. If I don't make it in 2020 I will work extra hard to meke it to LVC in 2021.

I agree with Nathaniell. You are in a unique position to help a lot of other people. Did you know that in America, government agencies give good incentives to employers to hire people with disabilities to work for them?

In my opinion, please use Jaaxy Search for all of the keywords and phrases to see what meets the right criteria...take a lot of notes to help you decide. You can also do your own research on Google to see what kind of sites come up after you use the keyword and phrases.

Before deciding on anything, wait at least one day before deciding. I made the costly mistake of not waiting and not going through all of the content and training videos.

The more I learned, the more ideas I had; Lesson learned!

Best of luck to you,

Hi guys!!!

After having had some confusion in my start-up I've now come up with a target audience I want to concentrate on as I move on. As I'm a complete newbie when it comes to Affiliate marketing I guess I'm a bit unsure.... so here it goes:

I, myself, have suffered from domestic abuse. Fog 25 years I was physically, psychologically and economically abused by my ex-wife. This led to me loosing my self-esteem, having my economy turn into chaos and loosing sight of a happy future. It's now been 9 months since I finally managed to escape from my horrible relationship. Due to my relationship I've had to stick to jobs that didn't pay that well. Do now as I've found Wealthy Affiliate with it's awesome opportunities I suddenly feel motivated to reclaim my self-esteem and above all, reclaim my financial freedom and get rid of my debts. I've chosen, as a target audience, men and women who have suffered from domestic abuse and who look for ways to reclaim their financial freedom and their self-esteem. I want to show them how they can work their way up with the awesome lay-up of Wealthy Affiliate!

I'm thinking of purchasing a domain with the name:

"reclaimyourfinancialfreedom.com"

What could be a good time for my website, guys? Any suggestions? Also, does the domain-name seem good and brandable considering my target audience?

Would be sooo grateful for some advice here...

If you want to help in a specific way this target of people you can do it through your content, telling your story and how you managed to achieve your goals being a member of WA and promoting Personal development programs as well.

Don't worry if you've just started, you've taken the first step of a long series that will lead you to the success you deserve.

I share to you also the article I wrote about the entrepreneur mindset. I wish you the best

Hi guys, I need help selecting a niche. I'm a person with a tunnel vision, so sometimes i kinda get stuck and miss the big picture. Any help is highly appreciated. So far I've got 3 different target audience.

Audience #1 - Property investors who are bleeding every month from mortgages/housing loans. I am actually suffering from the heavy installment every month due to low rental, so I can relate. However, I'm not sure how to direct this group of people to actually sign up for affiliate marketing.

Audience #2 - Independent ladies who want to be able to afford luxury products (fashion, beauty routine, vacation etc) and lives a flexible lifestyle through their own means.

This is my dream XD... I want to learn and then teach people how to build a personal brand online, and teach more woman how to live life to the fullest.

Audience #3 - Teach small businesses how to get more businesses online, how to leverage their knowledge to bring in more leads online. There are lots of people in my side of the world that doesn't understand that just having a website is not enough. Most of them are lost or do not put enough priority to build engagement with their customers online.

The problem that i can foresee with this target audience is that they are too busy every day trying to keep their business afloat, it will be very challenging to convince them to focus on blogging to get more leads.

------------------------------------
Any feedback or suggestion is highly appreciated >.< I am not sure which audience is better for newbies like me to start. Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi Winnie.
What if you focussed on Independent woman. Let them know they can line their own pockets through market affiliation, granting them more independence. You could then bring more into your site once you have a foothold. Like property investment. That sort of thing. :)

I wish you the best of luck.

Hello Winnie, I am new here at WA myself so I'm not going to give you advice about what Niche to pick. but I will say that you seem like a very smart young woman and you sound like you already know what you want. I thought you were talking about your target audience for a second there already. my advice to you would be to learn this program or boot camp. just learn whatever you can learn about this business of yours that you want to build online. Remember knowledge is power.

Kyle, I’m understanding I’m going to need a new niche. I’d like to choose Neurofibromatosis, (NF1) a neurological condition that affects one in 3000 babies born. Known more commonly as The Children’s Tumor Foundation. Is this feasible?
I’m passionate about NF1 ... this is the most common childhood disorder there is and many in the medical field don’t know what it is.

Then there’s the world of toys...to fall back on...

Thanks,
Lyn

AndreaPreece Premium
Hi Lyn,

With the challenge you'll be focusing on bringing people into the WA and getting paid a commission. But if your passion is NF1 it sounds as if there millions who would like to learn and benefit.

...back to the WA you would need a domain related to new site and to suit the theme of your site, articles etc

I know many people who are successful say pick one thing... it's not always that simple. If you have time you could do two sites and work on one in the background :)

Much success on your journey

I left comments and questions about the SAC about 4 days ago and it was never answered. At that time, we had just been tapped for this incredible opportunity- but left me with some housekeeping situations. Just by reading other people's questions and the answers , I am assuming we must start over again with a new niche. This is OK, but I like my current niche, and I feel it is just about at the point of a breakthrough. I really don't want to abandon it.
I don't want to abandon the SAC either. It's too great an opportunity. And I do need to see some income eventually.Sooner rather than later.
But I'm not coming up with a brand direction either. My first thought was Do's and Don't's in business or ethics in business- Took ethics in College,but that was eon's ago.
My next idea is online business like WA is great for stay at home folks, young mothers, handicapped and retired.
Would appreciate some answers, thoughts, ideas, direction.Thank you all.

I know I will be promoting WA, but not sure if thru my current blogs or a special one just for work at home?

Any thoughts. Please. Linda

You seem to have a website promoting health as you have two posts about feet and soap.
You need a separate website for promoting WA- don't mix the two up as it won't help with rankings
My suggestion, pick a line of business (niche) related to promoting WA and create a new website using site Rubix foundation and build from there, eventually, you can purchase your own dot com domain and transfer it over
Hope this helps, but shout if you're still confused

Often times they will recommend plugins that work with the theme, or that the theme owner has developed. You can test it out if you want, completely up to you.

You don't necessarily need any specific plugin though, these are just recommendations and it should be able to operate stand alone without this.

Reviewing the lesson, I see that Yoast SEO has the "settings" and not All In One SEO, I followed the lesson and made changes in Yoast SEO. And saved changes, however when I went back to review the SEO Title and Meta Description, the blocks were blank.
Is making the changes in Yoast SEO Okay? Since there are no settings in All In One SEO.

Thanks

yes i learned that the had way. each new set you add you must than hit save right underneath it where were is a green her mark or it will not save it all individually

I think that the blank blocks were a normal reaction to the changes. The two are just different. If you know how to do it, you could refill it in yoast. However, what I really want to say concerns the all in one Seo. You cannot find the settings initially, but after you have posted, you can find the settings through the word press edit. Just post it and then go to your published post and click edit. You would find the settings blocks to fill in. I hope that I made some sense.

O.K. I think Ive completed this section. I just cleaned up my side bar and added another widget for the About Me page. But the About Me button on the top still says [this site cant be found] The new widget I added to the side bar for About Me is working. I have had questions in the past only to find out that the next training section answeres the question. Hopefully that is the case here

What is the website URL, let us know and we can have a look. Your homepage may show "not found" if you haven't add any posts yet, but as soon as you add a "post" it will show up there as your homepage is typically your most recent posts by default.

Not to worry.

@Kyle Thanks for the Super Affiliate opportunity.
I chose a domain name before receiving the invite along with a home, about and policy page. I went to Google this am and checked the description under my website name. Google has not used the meta description I assigned through SEO, but has taken the second long statement from my home page first paragraph.

Google has given the description 203 characters which is more than the usual 160. Since Google has given 203 characters should I change the SEO home description to what Google assigned with the longer length?

Is this saved within your settings? If so, and you just updated this, it can take them to "reindex" your website before you actually see this live. So not to be concerned about this here.

I'm thinking about targeting Nomads - those that live in RVs. I do know a bit about this because I considered it a great way to retire and see a few continents (just don't think I can downsize that much). Though, I have no firsthand experience at RVing at this point in time.
I suppose I could be honest and say it is a dream of mine to be a part time "nomad."
Any thoughts on this?

I've actually widened my audience out a bit. Nomads in general. This would be a good way to help fund this lifestyle. I just bought a domain name: nomadaround.com
Ran it by my daughter before I bought it and she liked it and said it was "catchy" too. I think it is easy to remember also.
I have lots of creative thoughts going around in my head right now.
And I would love to one day become a part-time rv'er and travel. So researching for this website will be a joy.
I'm gonna get those 300 referrals and be able to do this.

I can use some help breaking down my niche, I'm trying to be more specific.

I like to write things out as I work out my problems. So, don't mind my mess, it may help you help me.

So far I have the following

website: seconds 2 work.

Target: I want to show Christians how to start an affiliate marketing business they can work from home.

The term Christian to me is too broad.

I thought about Baptist Christian, but then I leave out other Christians

So, I have
unemployed
underemployed
Self-Employment
Career Change
restaurant/fast food workers
Retail workers
Living in low-income housing
debt burden
With Student debt - I have the least experience with this group

As you can see, this niche is a lot of opportunities

Please add your thought to this comment.

Thank you and God bless

Any one of these can definitely be a direction that you head, I wouldn't limit your audience though like you said. I would target one of the audiences you mentioned, without corning in the "baptist" aspect of the niche.

I think that will really limit your audience, and the two are seemingly unrelated.

I hate shopping, even for necessities. So I don't see myself being able to do well on selling programs like Amazon.

But I believe the life lessons and skills we learn in WA are translatable to other means of creating online income.

So I'm excited about starting a website that focusses purely on generating traffic and highlighting what I'm getting out of WA, in the hopes of getting like-minded people out there to join me in WA.

Adsense pennies + WA referral revenue = recurring income.

That is my 'keep it simple' business plan for now until I become more experienced in affiliate marketing.

Is this too basic a plan? I'm simple-minded ... I need simple steps to achieve leaps and bounds.

There is nothing wrong with the keep it simple approach to begin with and then add on complexity later.
The only thing I would caution is putting all of your eggs in one basket. So, at some point you really should look into another source of income besides adsense as it is one of the lowest paying alternatives out there and if for some reason Google decides they don't like your content they can deny you from using adsense.
Good luck!

Hi Lynda,
Are you using the new version of Wordpress? Gutenberg?

If so, it uses blocks so there might be a setting somewhere within the block? I'm still using the previous version so I cannot replicate this.

I've been onboard 2 weeks. My goal is to refer 300 Premium Members this year. So far my Free->Premium upgrade ratio is 5% (I think it will increase long term, some people upgrade after many weeks or months). So my Free member goal for this year is 300 / 5% = 6,000 members.

Since the sign up page converts around 20%, that means I need to send 30,000 clicks to the sign up page.

Because I am a minimum wage or below minimum wage earner, maybe this is where I should begin. I know what these people are going through. They want to get ahead somehow but, the little bit of money they earn is keeping them from going ahead. Unfortunately, we, the minimum wage earners, see something advertised that is so called "free" and some of these advertisements do say, you can get this for free, we fall into their trap and then we find, it had a price that you have to pay before you even set foot into their domain. I sent a message to one of them today, which, I doubt they will ever see. My message was: they told me I have some huge checks waiting for me to claim. I wrote: I have to pay for my own checks? I know I won't an answer. That is what is frustrating for people who don't have much money. I think that these people think that we are lying when we say we can't afford what they offer. That is how I feel. It is so frustrating when someone keeps want I,g you to buy their products or donate to a cause, and you tell them you don't have the money, and they keep asking or insisting.
Sorry for going on so. I am finding that I can really relate to these people in this area. I want to help people. Do you think this is where I should begin? I would love nothing more than to show these people what you, Wealthy Affiliate, are doing for me! And in an honest way.

When I was near homeless and was working at DollarTree and living in a cheap horrible motel. I used to print off coupons with some of the stuff I was doing then (like you can on Swagbucks) and show the people living there how they can free stuff at dollartree by using $1.00 coupons. I helped a lot of people get free toothpaste and vitamins and stuff, you might even consider, adding that to your niche has well. How to stretch a budget on minimum wage. That way you can promote WA and help the people survive in the meantime while they are building your business, and you can earn some revenue from that has well too. Just a suggestion/idea.

Okay - one quick question. If I have two keywords:

Sr# > keyword > monthly searches > traffic > QSR > SEO
1. Keyword 1 > 3900+ > 650+ > 150+ > 82
2. Keyword 2 > 72 > 13 > 35 > 93.

Which one should I target and why? As per my understanding, Keyword 2 will give me higher ranking but Keyword 1 has more number of searches so does it in any way help?

Personally, I'd use Keyword 2 but still I want to take different angles from people who've already done it.

Please advise.

boomergp08 Premium
I would use keyword 22 because you have a better and quicker chance to rank high because of less competition.

Just because a keyword has a lot of monthly searches does not mean you will get a lot of people to find your post.

The QSR is the most important factor. If the 3900 searches had a QSR of 35, then that would be ideal.
Reply
avishka Premium
Thank you for responding to my query, Robert!

I've re-posted my query under Question section and concluded that I will use both the keywords. Keyword 2 as the main title and content. Keyword 1 as the sub-content within the post so that I still have an opportunity to tap into that 3900+ market. As both are related topic just slightly different keywords, I plan on making them work together. Overall post would be about 2000-3000 words long so there will be enough information to make the search engines happy.

Warm regards,
Avinash

I have a couple of websites with other hosting. Is it possible to move those sites to this platform? What I like about this hosting/platform is that you can manage all of your sites at once. It is easier to keep track of without having to go between each site.

I also like the idea of Jaxxy. I have been looking to getting a Jaxxy membership and now I can do this all at one time.

I have been dabbling with website building and affiliates for the past year. I love love coming up with domains and niches. My problem is I get easily distracted with the next good idea and haven't finished one yet.
Reply
Kyle Premium
It is quite a manual process to move a website to WA, but it can be done if it is a Wordpress based site.

You would have to follow these steps:

(1) Download your content locally
(2) Update your domain DNS settings to point to WA. Here are the DNS settings.

ns1.mywahosting.com
ns2.mywahosting.com

(3) Build a website here at WA using the website builder.
(4) Transfer your content over to WA

This is a very manual process and it can be done, but I don't recommend doing it if you have an established high ranking website, I don't usually recommend moving it.

The Managed Wordpress hosting you have access to here at WA is matched by very few hosts in the industry in terms of quality, security, speed, and support. It definitely is not a budget host like the other shared hosting companies out there. The hosting you get here at WA is comparable to $250 per MONTH hosting packages.

You can learn more about it here:

http://www.wealthyaffiliate.com/hosting/

You can host up to 25 of your own domains and 25 free .siterubix.com websites on your Premium hosting platform here at WA.

Also, the Jaaxy Lite membership is included within Premium. So if you upgrade, you will have full access to that.

If you need any further help, let me know.

You are not moving it from your homepage, your home page is your blog roll so all of your latest blog posts will show up there.

But you can create custom menus, and add any post/page you want to your top menu.

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!

I built my first website back, Affiliate marketing site, in the third week of September. By Oct 7 I had my niche website built. Oct 10, hurricane Michael hit Panama City FL and I had no reliable service for 3 months. So unable to work.

Several other things took place in Panama City and with my health and I was finally able to get going back on my Niche site somewhat. A month or 2 back Amazon let me go because I was not posting often enough. Rebuilt my site and started again. Reapplied and accepted.

I came back to Little Rock AR Feb 7 and have begun to resume activity but until this past Monday was not able to really set a schedule for anything. I was trying to come up with content for my niche site and went brain dead.

So Tuesday when I awoke it was in my mind to go back through the Boot Camp and redo my Affiliate site. I only had 3 articles on it which I copied and save in Site Content. I have my own domain.

My question is? Do I need to delete the entire old website before I even begin setting up the new one. I am trying to come up with a new name now which I need before I begin to build the site. I don't really want to set it up on rubix and then move it.

Hey guys, I've chosen marketingbuoy.com.

My target audience are people just like me who have done almost everything online to learn, grow and make their presence. They've jumped from one course to another in hope to get started but couldn't because of the feeling of inadequacy, maybe fear of failure, or just at the verge of giving up. But because of all this, they could never take that one step toward their goals. I'll be their guide to walk 'em through this phase and help them take that one step by sharing my experience and stories with which they could relate. Also, sharing about what marketing really is.

Any opinions or additions anyone would like to suggest.. I'm open and brainstorming as I continue my training.

I've been in stealth mode over the course of this last year using WA to build a website i use in my classroom. This site is not used for affiliate marketing.

But, I LOVE the convenience of WA's platform. It's so easy to use that I've gotten lost in implementing WA as a tool for teaching.

That being said, I am now ready to relaunch my efforts in affiliate marketing. My goal is to create a website with momentum and gain traction.

Ultimately, my goal is to generate a steady income this year by serving others and guide them to WA as their anchor to their affiliate marketing business.

Vegas is great goal!!! Time to break out the calendar and identify my timelines for achievements to make it a reality.

I'm looking forward to use the website and blogging skills I've learned and hone them to become a successful affiliate marketer with WA!!!

Reply

Your links will not be "clickable" until you publish your content. So publish your content, then you can double check the links...and you can also edit them if there is an issue.

As a rule of thumb, I recommend always double checking links after you publish. I think any seasoned affiliate marketer can tell you they have lost a lot of money over the years because they didn't check and they had broken links on their pages that could have been generating them revenue.

I already put this on my user profile but I figured I might as well ask more people here. I already have a website (relatively new as it's only a little over 2 months). It's an ambitious project, helping people to create bliss. My question is, would you recommend that I work on the Affiliate Boot camp (because I also want to promote WA) or should I do the Online Certification and focus on my already existing site? I sometimes feel like a magpie that's going after every shiny new thing (not good) and obviously want to succeed at this.

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

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

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

This is a process, so take your time.

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

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

:-)

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

Thank you Kyle for yet another educative and informative lesson it keeps getting better with each lesson.My worry now is writing About me in writing content, I fear i got no mark in the affiliate market except for the few lessons i'I've had so far being a newbie to online business and WA! Will my audience trust me without any mark except for the these few lessons ,its the knowledge i have about affiliate and little bit of research?

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

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

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

Any thoughts on these brand names would be much appreciated.

By the way i would never promote out and out gambling and it's not what i do. I spent years finding an edge and refining my skills and all my risk is strictly managed.
Reply
Kyle Premium
I would try to avoid combining these as I mentioned in another post. They aren't all that related, you could have a post on your website that promotes WA, but the focus if you wanted to head in the matched betting direction, I recommend that you make that the focus of your overall niche/content on your website.
Reply

Kyle i posted this before noticing your earlier reply regarding not mixing the two on the one site. I was just thinking that if i was creating a make money online website and i am an affiliate with WA and a Matched Betting site, would make sense to review both on the one site. I've taken on board your opinion and will separate the two. Thanks

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

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

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

I have only just started in this so have no experience of affiliate marketing. Is it possible to promote WA with no actual experience in affiliate marketing?

Up to you. And you don't need experience in any niche to be an expert in any niche. This is established over time and as you build out your website.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I wish you guys all the best!

Hi Eric

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

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

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

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


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

Hope this helps

I work full time, we are renovating our house (hubby is the builder, so he is only spending, not bringing in income!)... what's the point in me telling you this? I want to focus on people like me... we would definitely be considered well off, with a big house in a really nice area, but we have big debts and much bigger dreams... my main problem, I don't know what to call this audience!

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

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

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

Hi,
When I started with WA last week, I believe. I started the affiliate training where I already made a website.

You don't start over no, if you are building a website for working within the make money niche and promoting WA along with other products/services in the industry, you are in the right place here. ;)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sure, that could work. And within this space, you could definitely branch out and diversify. Your brand could be about your carreer, and then within your website, you can help people create and grow a business online and show them the online opportunity (along with others).

I like it. You are going to be be able to target MANY keywords outside of the courier line of keywords as well. There will be no shortage.
Reply
RTR2705 Premium
Thank you Kyle - unsure how to target the keywords - can you help or show me where to find it?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Keywords are the premise of all of your content. Ideally you will be finding keywords with a lower competition (also known as QSR) because it means that you are going to be competition with less websites in Google when you go to create your content.

You want your keyword to meet the following criteria:

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

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

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

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

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

Hope this helps you out Ryan!

You could also ask the question of members if there are other nurses in WA. I'm sure that are a lot.

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

Hi Luzia,

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

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

I hope this is what you are querying,

I think this is an important direction, it is all about educating.

Yes totally, I am thinking of including the inner game, clearing mind blocks and offering WA as the practical action side. For most people the fears keep them from taking the risk and stickability to their vision. The get rich quick schemes appeal to the mind that is fearful and not grounded and free enough to be passionate about becoming an expert. Changing the mindset changes the game plan. I hope @Kyle and others will comment on this and give some comments...

Yes, you can choose that if you want. It is completely optional and won't really impact you either way.

I am confused with the direction part, as I am into Bootcamp affiliate, and I wanted to help those youngsters who have very less job opportunities in my city, people are looking for business but they don’t know how to start and where to start. So I want to promote this WA to those people around in the city. Please help me with building the website with the good direction.

Thank you

You just need to do the training, do one step at a time and go from there.

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

I am doing Affiliate Bootcamp. I dont know exactly what my website will look like since I was planning on having a differrent niche, I changed my mind since I am more passionate about this and helping others has always been my biggest passion. I can teach others how to help themselves create financial freedom. I just don't know what the website would look like, how to get referrals, etc

Hi, it’s a step by step process. I try to apply what I learn simultaneously when building my website. It will look simple and it may not look the way you want in the beginning. There is so much lessons here. Start from the beginning and build as you learn, you will find yourself more knowledgeable as you go and you will become advanced, once you do your website will reflect all the things you have learned overtime. As Kyle said, you are painting a canvas, the end result will be beautiful.

HELP Apparently the above procedure for adding comments is different if I have an existing domain I am working with because even if I log in to my existing .com domain, when I go to add About Me, the information I typed in previously for my WA domain pops up even though I did not log in to it. Seems it defaults to the first domain. Any suggestions without completely removing the earlier website I worked on but no longer use or log in to?

Those are setting within your own browser and we have no control of that.

Even though it is a Wordpress theme on a domain I purchased through WA? I do not understand the disparity.

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

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

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

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

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

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

My opinion

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

This looks pretty good, perhaps a bit too brief. What I do recommend is you publish it on your website so we can see the design element as well.

It is MUCH easier to give feedback this way, and then based on the feedback you get you can make the appropriate changes.

Feedback very nice

I agree with you. I am on SSDI and I have been online and been all over the internet for over a year and this program has everything I want and more and I can actually afford it. It is a gift from my higher power. There is so much support. I was telling my friend that the most stressful part of WA is responding to everyone's words of support. There are just so many people wishing me good luck and telling me that they are here for me. I am following you and I am here for you too. I am at the beginning but I am a good listener and amazing at research. Welcome to the family!

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

Hey, I have a question for you guys. Since I am from Serbia, and my native language is Serbian language, do you think that it would be a good idea to make my first site for promoting WA on Serbian language, since the competition is much smaller, or should I stick with English? :-)

English might be where the money is. Just a thought.

Hi, when I did my Privacy Policy and made it as a page why does it still come up with a comment section? And how do I get rid of it? I know the comment section is available on posts but I do not want it on the Privacy Policy. Thanks in advance for any help.

Some themes allow for comments on pages. That is completely fine, that is just based on the theme that you choose and I wouldn't worry about this at all.

Just don't approve any comments that you get on your privacy policy page. No worries at all.
