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.

Direction: Helping people that are stressed and need direction in life, step by step in helping them become a better version of themselves.
Brand Name: Life Revamp With Affiliate Marketing (LRAM?)
Goal: teach affiliate marketing to anyone and everyone with insights on health, goals, habits when they want to better themselves.

Although a bit more niche, I'm sure this scenario of direction is what some may internally feel when wanting get out of the struggle they are in/dilemma they are facing with money and want a direction to go in.

Let me know what you guys think with my Direction, Brand Name, Goal any insight is much appreciated

All in all, you've got a great idea. I like the name. And you can definitely leverage the program here to succeed in this niche. I'm guessing you're geared toward promoting WA then, right?
michaelw777 Premium
This sounds like a great Niche Idea; and in fact; you could broaden it to cover health and diet in general. Just saying; if you want to? You could broaden this to cover Health and Diet too.

Hope this helps and encourages?

Whoever would like to take on this question...I personally tried Bluehost n WIX before locating WA. Not to put anyone down, but these two can't compare to WA for many reasons. Would it be unethical to mention these two in my review for comparison reasons? I don't anyone to look bad, those are not my intentions.
I'm waiting for answer
CountessCtry Premium
So what answer are you looking for? Are you trying to write a review? How can I help?
miloncashgal Premium
Is it unethical to mention Bluehost or Wi
Kyle Premium Plus
Sure, you can compare products and services. That is a good way to help your visitors understand what is the best option, and obviously no hosting company on it's own can compete with the service here at WA...not just on a hosting level, but with everything else that is included within the platform and community.

I checked my affiliate link, it's going to a page with a bit old stats which is forecasting 2018. Would you like to update this landing page which is quite important to have updated data for visitors. Unfortunately, I can paste neither the screenshot nor my affiliate link here because of not being a Premium member yet :)
CountessCtry Premium
You are a premium member quite all right. Landing pages is what we make out. You may want to run an update.
MikeHamidy Premium
Thanks for the reply. I guess I need to rephrase my question :)
My affiliate link is leading to the WA landing page and on this page (which I have no access to change) there is old data. Please look at this screenshot. The graph is too old, ends with an estimation for coming 2018 ?? :) I hope that you understand me better now.
Angell70 Premium
Hi Mike, I would say maybe you want to contact site support or ask the community in the chat room.
Carson just posted the last article with the latest improvement to the platform so, maybe you can take a look at this too
MikeHamidy Premium
Thank you so much, I will do that :)
CountessCtry Premium
Yeah right we can custom do, my understanding site support fixes our sites. Live Chat is cool

Hello gang, I have been going over the lessons again to get as much meat as I can. The platform layout has changed since the video was made here on lesson 9 and I don't know how to find my WA affiliate link. The tabs are different now and there seems to be no "programs details" tab. My review is getting close to completion but I have no link to WA yet.
TheAbie Premium Plus

Yes there was a system update last November. Left sidebar has now to top.

You affiliate link would be the $ sign top menu.

Program details
I was thinking about making my niche in the Fitness Industry, should I make it more focused or just talk about all the different aspects of fitness? Just needing some ideas to get the ball rolling. Should you do more than one of these or just stick to one at a time?
Also I am drawing a total blank on my site name, not sure how to run with that in the field I’m wanting.
Is Local Marketing a good one to try as well? Would that make it just about me trying to help local businesses and people market themselves or their companies?
CountessCtry Premium
As we are now in the Affiliate Bootcamp is the (make money online niche) I want to write lots of content addressing issues in making money. You need to see what type of audience (see resource below) you want to reflect on and resonate with you, may have knowledge with them and can reach out to them through your content. I was recommended to do the whole thing before starting work on my site and to only focus on wanting to do your own niche or the Bootcamp. For own I would choose something that resonates with me, could be a hobby, interest, a side hustle, something I know about and can write lots of original content. Anything rings the bell? it is important to know who your target audience is gonna be, who you are writing to and once you figure this out, it becomes easier coming up with a niche. Please reach out if you need help or a hand.
Wishing you well, continued success and a terrific day.
CountessCtry Premium
I name what resonates best with me but with a siterubix subdomain can be changed if you made a mistake versus a dot come url once purchased cannot be changed. WA has a lot of local marketing resources .
DianeScorpio Premium
Hi - this training course is for those who want to use make money online as their niche and promote WA. If you prefer to use your own choice of niche, you need to switch back to the OEC course, as it will be more suitable.
Angell70 Premium
Hi Eric, you can check my site to see as I have the same niche as you if this is what you are passionate ab. just don't copy as you won't be seen good.
Fitness is a broad niche and you can write and expand anything you want.
michaelw777 Premium
I just said this to someone: Other Members please correct if wrong? But, I think you are in the wrong training; what you are looking for is Online Entrepreneur Certification. If I am wrong? Other Members please correct?
michaelw777 Premium
You know what? I just said this to someone; i think you are in teh wrong training program. You want Online Entrepreneur Certification. Right now you are in Affiliate Bootcamp.

Other Members please correct if wrong? But, I think I am right; you are in the wrong training program.

Hope this helps and encourages?
Kyle Premium Plus
I would recommend that you narrow it down a bit, what aspect of "fitness" do you want to help people out with?

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)
