You have made some wonderful accomplishments in just your first 10 lessons of Bootcamp thus far! Kudos to you on your hard work. :)

You not only have set out on a journey to carve yourself out as an authority online, you have the underpinnings and structure set up for a long term and very successful business online.

Wealthy Affiliate is a platform and community that you can believe in and your income from WA alone, could drive you to a FULL TIME INCOME and far beyond. That is our ultimate goal with the Bootcamp training and that is exactly what you are going to accomplish if you give yourself time to achieve success.

That leads me to "what success looks" like online. I want to give you some true perspective before I leave you today.

What a LONG TERM Business Looks Like Online

There is an old Chinese proverb, and one that has always remained very close to me in my journey online, as well as when helping others build successful businesses online.

"To know the road ahead, ask those coming back."

In other words, if you want to know what success looks like and what the journey is like, then ask someone who has been there. I have been at this full time since 2002 and I think that I can offer you an incredible amount of insight into what the journey to success will like look.

But it is not just me, you have an incredible community of help and literally 100,000's of folks that "know the road ahead". We are truly a pay it forward community, and one where we all have each others best interests at heart.

I want to offer you some powerful insight here INTO the journey before we wrap things up in Phase 1 of Bootcamp here. I want to break the journey down into typical timeframes, based on consistent effort and work for you. When can YOU expect to achieve certain goals and success?

Here is how your journey could look, a realistic journey.

**Note: It took me 3 months to make my first sale online.

There is something to be said about being patient and not expecting "instant" success in business.

But remember, you are building a business here. You get OUT of your business what you put INTO it. Ask any successful person what the fundamental reason why they are successful and others are not and they will usually say one of two things. Hard Work or Focus.

I have a problem with my brand/niche. I set up my website three months ago (1-4all.com) and made it a collection of the interests I work on daily - so it’s called Club Creative and includes

1. online writing classes (an older demographic usually)

2. making money online (could be anyone)

3. editing - blog posts, articles, etc (probably younger)

4. 2d & 3d animation and funny videos (who knows - it’s a fun hobby!)

5. as an outlet for my recorded music (30s-50s)

6. and my recent interest in haunting and the paranormal - probably because of the cancer and the fact that I’m likely to go sooner than most (prob 16-35??)

I had planned to work on these in order. I’m having my first free online writing class on 1 Nov, but the others are going to take months to get to, I think. The “club creative" brand is a vast catchment area.

If my dad were still alive he’s say I’d “made a rod for my own back” by doing everything at once! <smiles>

A program I’ve been in for 40 years suggestions one day at a time - so I might paraphrase that as “should I target the demographics in each area as I get to them? Any ideas?

Thanks so much guys!

I would target just one niche at a time and focus all of your energy being successful at that first. After you have success then later or in your spare time you can dedicate some resources towards a broader collection of niches. People that come to your website will not likely be interested in a website with wide-ranging subjects, and will click away. "Make Money" people usually will click away from "Paranormal" content. Multiple RELATED niches on one website can work, but unrelated subjects on the same website is a recipe for disaster. Save that attempt for after you have success in one niche.

Thanks BriBar. I wish I'd known 3 months ago what's becoming obvious now! The hours I've put into that site and the whole Club Creative concept! I guess I could move them all into sub domains. Thank you for your suggestion and insights.

I started the training “online Entrepreneur Certification” and built my website around my niche. As I am only a starter at the moment I can’t access the next part of the training, so I started the “Affiliate Bootcamp”. It’s says about building a website, does this mean another website or the one I have already made?

Hi - as a starter member you can only have one website. If you are happy with the niche you have chosen, then continue with that website and add content to it.

The Boot Camp training is for those who want to build a website about making money online. You can read through it to see if there is anything new you can learn, but you dont have to do the tasks.

Either one, it's your choice. You can promote Wealthy Affiliate on your website and do the "Affliate Bootcamp" or promote any product you choose and skip over the "Affliate Bootcamp" and continue training.

Hi - the make money online niche is extremely competitive and you could potentially have to write hundreds of articles on this subject to see any great success.

Just starting my WA affiliate site, just wondering if it is OK to put Links in my first post, I am writing a review on WA.

It was just when we done the other training it was advised not to put links in until you had a few posts done

Well, I can say for this; if you are doing a review of The Wealthy Affiliate; stick to that. You don't want to have potential customers getting confused. And it would sort of look bad. If you are doing a review of The Wealthy Affiliate and putting other Affiliates.

Now, I will say here; and I am just going to say; I am trying to help a Member doing a Review of The Wealthy Affiliate.

I would advise putting Wealthy Affiliate Links. I would advise for this. Don't put links to other Companies. Only to The Wealthy Affiliate.

Hope this helps? No Offense meant.

No offense taken Michael but I was only talking about WA affiliate links, I should have been more clear.

I am a bit confused and have a question about Duplicate content?

Is it ok to have Duplicate content on your own website and for it not to be the same as other websites? Or should you also have no Duplicate content on your own website and for it not to be the same as other websites too?

(Basically does Duplicate content apply for your own website or does it apply for all the other websites out there).

Also, it made me think, how does the Duplicate content checker actually work... Does it just check if your content is Duplicate from your own website or does it compare to see if your content is Duplicate against all websites.

Anyway, if anyone can help me out with this, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks for your help.

Brian.

Hi, that's a great question.

I recently made some research, because I was also confused about that. And I think lots of people have no idea how the duplicates content applies...

Anyway, based on what I know, the duplicate apply only from your own website.
If you write a content similar to another one on your website, Google will not index it, as Google will consider the first one as the original.

But if you write an article similar to another one from another website, Google won't rank it, as Google will consider that you aren't providing any value, but you're just submitting something that already exists.

I think the duplicate checker here at WA checks if your content is similar to any article on the internet. That's how it works.

It wouldn't make any sense to check only duplicate content from your own website.

Hope it helps.

Cheers

Hey there Warly10,

Thanks for the reply, I really appreciate it.

Also, I have continued researching this question myself and found that Google actually doesn't like it if you have duplicate content on your own website or others.

I found the answer here, where Kyle answers the question, plus there is a link to Google, actually defining what they see as duplicate content themselves, and its the same answer. But thanks for replying to my question. It is much appreciated.

Thanks,

Brian.
