Okay my 7 days are about to run out and I'm not going to be able to go premium at this time, so what do I do?
Will this affiliate site be the second free page that I can use?
I have a site already, so I'm just wondering if this is ok for my second one or do I have to get rid of the other one to be able to do this?
Also will I be able to get the answer and be able to read it if my time runs out?
It's late ...(after 12 again and I gotta go to bed)!
So I won't be back on until tomorrow after 3, and my 7 days will be gone before I get back!

You can use social media to promote WA, sometimes social media sites like Facebook don't allow direct affiliate links so you will need to link to your websites that you will be building out (which you will be doing as you move through the Affiliate Bootcamp).

Greetings, Kyle. I do have a question that has been bugging me for some time now. Could you please explain the difference between raw clicks, unique clicks and content clicks.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Raw, is the total number of clicks. If you clicked on your links 10 times, it would count as 10 raw clicks.

Unique, is the total number of unique visitors that have come through your affiliate link. If you clicked on your link 10 times, that would only count as ONE unique click because you are one visitor.

Content clicks are clicks that you get as a result of creating content here at WA (which you get credit for). If you create a blog post, create a question, a training resource, or profile, you will get full credit for these if they get indexed in Google and you get traffic as a result of it.

Hope this helps you out!

Hi Kyle have 2 questions, 1) Are you saying as a starter I can promote links and start making money if persons join, and you mention promote on my website, but what if my website is in no way related to making money online do I have to now create a website specifically for that. 2) What is the difference between get started and affiliate boot camp. I did up to 9 courses in get started level 1 and I also joined boot camp. so do I have to focus on one or do both. Sorry for the long questions.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Sure, happy to help here. In response to your questions:

1) Are you saying as a starter I can promote links and start making money if persons join, and you mention promote on my website, but what if my website is in no way related to making money online do I have to now create a website specifically for that.

Yes you can promote your affiliate links as a Starter member. You earn 2x the commissions as premium, but by all means.

I don't recommend that you force promotions on sites that are not relevant to Wealthy Affiliate though. That will serve little benefit to you.

2) What is the difference between get started and affiliate boot camp. I did up to 9 courses in get started level 1 and I also joined boot camp.

If you want to promote WA and work within the "make money niche", go through the Affiliate Bootcamp training. If you want to build a business within another niche, head through the Get Started Here training.

Focus on just one though. You are going to be much more successful if you focus on one business/website versus trying to do too many things at once. You can always diversify down the road.

Hope this helps you out here Jasmine!

thank you you did indeed make it perfectly clear with that explanation. so I think for now I'll definitely be continuing with bootcamp because I really do want to get better at making money online.

Great video and nicely up to date to the newest. Am wondering though about how the functionality is going to work for my tasks and PPC tracking as well as the messages.

Believe PPC is explained. Hope the same for the tasks and the messages. Feel also there could have been more messages...

But hopefully this is further explained in the bootcamp.

I'm having a hard time understanding "How to set up my referrals". Do I point to my referral to the WA website for them to lookover and if they decide , who submits their names? Like me, nobody referred me. So am I a referral to anybody because I just browsed around to look for a legit business on line and I enrolled myself after finding out the good points of WA. How would I know if my referral enrolled herself into the system?

You send people to WA through your affiliate link. If they decide to join, they become your referral and you earn an income if they decide to upgrade in the future. :)

Excellent walk through and gets me all excited in getting started...just a quick question...if I get say, 400 ppl joining in one year can I carry over the 100 to the next year count for the vegas conference?... hehe =) I know this is VERY ambitious...but was just thinking....
Reply
Kyle Premium
They don't carry over from year to year, but if you make 400 in one year, there is a very good chance that in subsequent years you will achieve MANY more!

If you can make 400 in a year, making 1,000's in a year is just a matter of doing more of what you are already doing (scaling).

The first video for the Affiliate Bootcamp was great and certainly motivates me to get started right away. I have a question that may turn out to be a bit foolish however:

Is something supposed to happen when you click the "Click Here to Commit to Your Affiliate Bootcamp Success!" button? I ask because nothing at all happens and i want to make certain that I haven't messed anything up...

Thanks in advance for the help.

so - if everyone in the affiliate bootcamp is promoting wealthy affiliate - what separates us from each other? I am trying to decide between the get started here path and the wealthy affiliate bootcamp. My niche would be making money online - so wealthy affiliate fits in my niche - but I am just wondering what separates us from each other...
Reply
Kyle Premium
Everyone isn't promoting affiliate bootcamp. In fact, MOST people are not and there are 100's, if not 1,000's of different directions you can head with bootcamp and there are 3.75 BILLION people online that can benefit from the services here at WA.

Never worry about competition, it is actually quite limited online and the audience within any niche is reaching levels we have never seen in respect to opportunity.

So basically earning via WA is by adding referrals?

It is recommending and referring people to WA, correct. The same as promoting or becoming an affiliate of any product or service online.

You can in essence benefit (and create a full time business) by helping people build a business online, through the recommendation of WA (and likely other products/services as well as you move forward).

Yeah, we are not huge fans of the multi-level concept. The problem always surrounds the lack of focus on the product and all the focus being on recruitment.

Expect big things out of the WA factory in 2017 and through 2018! :)
