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.

You don't want to use Google Ads if you don't have the budget to do so. You are going to be learning how to rank your website using FREE techniques, SEO in the early stages.

Head through the training and take action, you will be well on your way. ;)

Apologies for the long post .. but think my thoughts need explaining

My family an I are both massive Harry Potter fans ... and Only Fools and Horses fans (uk comedy).

A while ago .. we came up with the name Potters Independent Traders... a take off of the Trotters Independent Traders from the comedy show.

We have decided to use this as the umbrella for all of websites that we will create.

i.e. my wife's part-time balloon business .. (Dream Balloons) will be re-branded to be Potters Party Balloons.. and then expanded (with additional sites) to include Potters Party Gifts etc.

To promote WA ... I am thinking of Potters Magical Money... The individual blog pages within this website would aim at the specific niches and demographics...

i.e. (
work at home mums - earn part-time income - WA based
recently retired - earn part-time income - WA Based
etc
and also include blogs on other money making/saving ideas - linking to other affiliate programs (i.e. insurance compare sites)

Am I being too broad?

Opinions please

Although I like your ideas, I am not sure if it is against trademark rules , as I am sure Harry Potter is a trademark. I am not an expert on trademarks but is something you need to look into before going that road.

Yeah, when you choose your domain you just have to be careful about using trademarked words in your actual domain.

I would recommend that you avoid using trademarks or franchises within your domain names. While many allow this sort of thing (ex. Apple), many are much more controlling with their trademarks (ebay, amazon, etc).

You could test a search in Google to see if other domains out there run by affiliates are allowed as this will be a good sign. Ultimately though, you cannot truly brand yourself if you are using someone else's trademark in a domain so I do recommend avoiding it.

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 have chosen my direction and brand for my business. I have to build my website next.

I have the option of choosing a free domain or a paid domain.

What will be the difference in terms of ranking my website in google. Will a purchased domain have some advantage. If so I would like to go with a purchased domain.

Ideally at some point you will want a paid domain, but you can certainly start off with a free website. Down the road you can use the MOVE feature to move you .siterubix.com domain.

I typically recommend that someone use their own domain when they have decided on their niche and their brand. :)

The direction I am going to be choosing for my business is

"Helping People Retire Early"

I want to help people who want to retire early for the following reasons.
- To be able to spend more time with the family
- To be able to have more vacations with family in their prime time
- To be able to provide for the best for the family including the best education for their children
- To create wealth which can take care of their life after retirement

The name of my Brand would be

Creating Online Assets

Looking forward to suggestions and comments if my direction for my business to promote Wealthy Affiliate is in line.

Awesome range of possibilities.
I did the basic WA training and have created a website based on my passion - kite boarding. I know for a fact that every kitesurfer in the world dreams of being free to go where they want (sunny, windy beaches), when they want (always - when the wind blows). And the same has to be true for climbers, surfers.....the list is endless!

So can I link my original niche website to my Bootcamp Brand?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Sure, you can head in that direction but you are in the wrong spot here within Bootcamp. If you want to build a business around the "kitesurfing" niche, head through the Online Entrepreneur Certification direction.

You will find this within the "training" menu. If you want to build a business in the make money space, bootcamp is for that. ;)

Hi Kyle, thanks for getting back to me.
I've already completed the online entrepreneur course and built my first website. I'm looking to make my second one in the make money space.

It was more whether to have a link from my kitesurfing site to the make money site. Something like, if you want to be free to kitesurf anywhere in the world...make money on-line.
