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.

  • Website Set Up
  • SEO Set-up
  • Initial Framework of Content

  • Search Engines are starting to give your site "authority"

**Note: It took me 3 months to make my first sale online. Here I am 15 years later full time online, if I quit in the first month I would have never gotten to experience of lifelong and very fruitful business 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.

Warm regards,

I presume you have used 2 different email addresses. You need to log out of this account and log in to the correct one.

I'm understanding the process much clearer now I see it unfold. It is 'fun' as described and with regular use I guess the unkown 'technical' side will become less daunting. If I had some kind of IT training before, I guess my fingers would be moving at lightening speed! Lol :-)

Kyle Premium Plus
Yes, the technical stuff will become straight forward and second nature as you continue to "immerse" yourself in the process of building a website.

Efficiency comes with practice!

I'm thinking along the lines of targeting for people that want to learn how to make money on the internet to get out of their current job situation. I have friends and family working their "hind ends off" for places like Walmart, and it's nearly killing them.

I worked for Walmart for just over a year and it sent me further into the disabled list. A friend of mine worked for Walmart for over ten years and she did many different jobs. I remember she was always running around the store like a chicken with its head cut off. It took a toll on her body as well. Now she has a sit down job at our local court house.

My son works in receiving and unloads the trucks. He's only 36 and with his bad back, he comes home in pain all the time. I also have a cousin that just retired early because of the pain caused by working at Walmart. She was an assistant manager.

So, my target audience is going to be for people working at jobs that's killing them. However, I need some ideas for the niche. Please, does anyone have any suggestions? I would greatly appreciate it.

Kind Regards,

Thea

Absolutely, plenty of people in that situation that can leverage the Internet to build a business online...they could even promote Walmarts own affiliate program (and that could be an introduction to affiliate marketing that you could leverage to help them make sense of it).

So I definitely do like the direction you are heading here and this is a significant audience!

For me, I think I won't change a lot from the example given above...
The direction I am going to be choosing for my business is: "Helping people become Successful Affiliate Marketers". And the brand name to be: "Sure Deal Affiliate". What do you think guys? Please help me with this, because if I mess up at the beginning, then it won't work.
Reply
michaelw777 Premium
You know what; I would keep the business name and brand name the same; or very similar; because your audience may not know what you mean by "Sure Deal Affiliate". I am just saying; you audience may not understand what that means exactly.

So, I highly suggest to you; to keep the brand name and the business name the same; or very similar. Hope this helps?

I like "Sure Deal Affiliate - Helping people become successful Affiliate marketers" Do you like it?

It sounds nice but it's too long I think.
Try something shorter, like Successful affiliates or Affiliate program for beginners..
When is shorter it's easier to remember, therefore easier to be branded.
