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?

My chosen niche is the Game of tennis. I am concentrating on teaching how to play tennis, the advantages of being a tennis player, choosing the proper equipment and clothing, and how to keep improving your skills.
I would like to be able to promote Wealthy Affiliate on my website, but wonder if this is the best place to do this, or do I need a separate website?
Warly10 Premium
This is a great niche tennis. I encourage you to go for it...

If you want to promote Wealthy Affiliate as well, you will then need to have two websites : one to talk about tennis stuff, and another one to promote WA...

But if you are just starting out, i would advice you to start with only one website... Because it requires a lot of work to maintain it, especially from the beginning
J-KWest Premium Plus
As Warren mentioned, you would need a separate website to promote Wealthy Affiliate effectively.

That doesn't mean you can't do it, but relevancy and recency are key, which is to say, your content needs to meet people where their minds are at the moment they find your content.

For example, if you were searching for the "best tennis rackets for a beginner", that's what you are focused on at that very moment. You may have dozens of other interests, but at that moment, what you want is a list of the best tennis rackets for beginners and anything else is a distraction.

And then trust comes into play as well. If you land on a site that's dedicated ONLY to tennis and nothing else, you would trust you're getting the most accurate and comprehensive answer to your query.

On the other hand, if you landed on a site that had "some" tennis (or even mostly tennis) but talked about other topics as well you'd be less inclined to trust you're getting the most comprehensive content on the topic (even if it was).

This confuses Google as well and their algorithm can have a difficult time determining exactly what your site is about... which hurts your rankings.

So there's no rule that says you can't promote WA on your site, it's just a matter of the user experience you're trying to deliver to your audience.

I previously joined another company who were not so user friendly with training or providing help and assistance. It cost me capital I could ill afford (with this epidemic) and I'm glad that I eventually found W.A. through many websites referring it. The situation I'm in now is that I have an existing domain that the previous guys recommended, which is my name and recommends. They said it was good to start off with ( being open ended) So now I have mynamerecommendsdotcom Is it possible to promote and build myself as a trusted brand where people are open to taking a look at what I'm recommending?
Kyle Premium Plus
Glad you found us and you will be able to use existing domains with the hosting here (within Premium), or you can start fresh with a new domain. That is up to you.

Regardless you are going to be learning how to build a business properly. I really look forward to working with you!
The goal for my business it to become a holistic resource for wealth, health and happiness. The main focus will be assisting and teaching people how to make money online (even though i am still learning) as well as adapting positive mindsets a health happy environment in which to thrive.
Our domain name does not have any "MMO" keywords in it? Is is the name of my company.. Will this be a problem or will be able to rank with smart tag titles meta tags ect?
Our main audience was going to be focused on stay home mom's or people with part time jobs needing a second income - it that to broad??
Warly10 Premium
If your main focus is to assist and teach people how to make money on the internet, then your niche is MMO...

However, it doesn't really matter if the domain name has mMO keyword or not, and it doesn't have to. just find a simple domain, that matches with the business.
For example : ; ; ; and so on...

There are so many domain out there that are still available...
You will be able to rank with the meta title and description, but not only that, you will be ranked mostly for your content...

focusing on stay home moms or people with part time is great, and i don't think it's too broad

Trust me Kyle. I love every guidance I am getting in here. These tuitorials are priceless. I have been wanting to learn how to run a website since 2015. Five years down the line of no luck and now I am remaining with 3 steps to complete phase 1 of my training. 🙂
Daisydog21 Premium
Go for it Tamara,
Without WA, this would almost be impossible for me. But I think you will discover that all your goals and tasks you need to do will be met, because we bloom when it comes to helping others here.

Tamara46 Premium
Indeed. This community is awesome.
WA is the way...

You don't start off at the end point in business, you start off in the beginning and ALL top affiliates at one point started out as complete newbies. Many of these same folks are sitting with us in Vegas every year at our annual Super Affiliate Conference (all expenses paid).
I love this and I am aiming for this
Kyle Premium Plus
Yes, that is definitely the case. I started off in the "starting point" and here I am 18 years later being full time online.

All successful affiliates here also started out, many of which got their very first class online and were introduced to the idea of affiliate marketing through bootcamp.

You are capable of getting to any level of success that you are willing to work for in the online world. ;)
