Hi my name is Dorothy. This is my first day and I am very excited about joining this team. I have tried others but failed. So I want to be my success ☺️ I know that it is going to take time and patience anddd a lot of learning. I’m sooooo ready. Hopefully I can straighten up my bank account from other failed money hungry gurus before the seven day mark. I wish that I had found WA SOONER. BUT HERE I AM. YAY

Many of us had tried a lot of other things and lost money to the fake gurus out there before coming here to WA. But it truly is amazing training and a great community here.

Great to have you here and as you say - better late than never:-)

Hi, I just joined. I currently have a website on Wordpress.org. I talk about online marketing and such. I essentially signed up for this because I thought it would give me tips and tricks on how to get better at affiliate sales (I am affiliated with several companies, as well as Amazon and independent individuals who have their own products). I am starting to understand that maybe this is for creating a niche website...so what I want to know is whether I'll be able to keep my current website and just use the techniques I am learning here, or is it mandatory to get a new website? Thanks!

You can use that website you already have but why not transfer it over to WA for the free hosting?

You can use WA in whatever way it suits you best. Before I joined, I already had a Word Press website up and running (and still do) that is hosted on Blue Host. I have continued using WA because of all the training and helpful info. I have learned tons through their affiliate boot camp that I use on my other blog.

I did start an additional website in a different niche that is hosted within WA just to explore which might end up being more profitable for me. I had already been a little torn between the two niche's so it worked for me. You do have the option of bringing that domain over and hosting it within WA if you wanted but you can totally leave it where it's at if you are happy with your current web host. (If you are on a plan that charges monthly it could save you a monthly fee)

Hope that is helpful

Thanks Melissa! That was a very helpful response. I think I am gonna leave my WordPress where it's at, and start a new one here. Btw, are these sites as SEO friendly as WordPress? I know that there are some platforms that don't do well for SEO.

I just started recently and found the introduction video very informative, thanks Kyle. I also appreciate the community's input to clarify other relevant issues. For example I felt like a sitting duck if I do not upgrade immediately. However I would like to get familiar with the basic tools first. Let the journey begin.

Kyle Premium
Sure, get familiar. Do what makes the most sense to your situation Ernie, but when you do decide to go Premium I know you are not going to regret your decision to do so. :)

This seems promising, great beginning material for the price you pay...which is nothing. A lot of useful information & wouldn't mind upgrading to premium, however, as I was going through the recent messages on here I saw a reply that said..."Bear in mind, that once you have upgraded to premium, if you decide to cancel your membership, you can't go back to being a free starter, and would lose all access to this platform."... does this mean you are technically forced to continue paying otherwise you lose all progress and would get kicked from your own account?
Reply
DianeScorpio Premium
Hi - I wrote that comment. If you use one of the free websites you are given, they are not actually yours, so yes, if you cancel your membership, then you can't move them anywhere and they will no longer be hosted. However, if you are using a purchased .com domain, then you own it. If you cancel, you are given 30 days to move it to another hosting service.

EdwinBernard Premium
Yes. Don’t upgrade until you’re sure you can make the premium payments. You can always rejoin as a new free member. But it would be like starting again.

Here’s my recommendation. Save up while you’re a free member until you have the $359 for the annual membership. That’s less than $1 a day.

If you are willing to wait, WA has a Black Friday sale of $299 for a year. Once you get that, your annual renewal will always be that amount.

Upgrade now if you can afford the $49 monthly subscription. When the Black Friday sale happens, transfer to that rate.

I hope I’ve given you a new perspective on membership.

Cheers.

Edwin

I agree with the fellow members. It is better to understand the business before upgrading to premium. I suggest that you go over with the lesson 1 of online entrepreneur. It will explain the process and it will clear all your questions about affiliate marketing.

Hiya Ogutu,

Don't worry about the money yet.

Focus on the training. Find a niche your are PASSIONATE about, and then help others who are passionate about the same niche by giving them helpful advice as you're in the business of providing quality content with the end goal of giving them the SOLUTION (Product or Service).

Kind regards,

Ash

WA Platform layout is extensive without a shadow of doubt.

Hopefully, the whole process is put together in an Idiot's Guide Way...not that i'm too much of an idiot, but the more people we can get to realise the future they CAN CREATE IF THEY TAKE ACTION.

All you have to do is to KEEP TAKING ACTION DAILY...DAILY...DAILY.

One thing I would suggest is that maybe the more experienced Mentors can cross check to see that new Premium Members get a REMINDER - simple as saying -

Hey Ash...you forgot to complete this bit or that bit. When reading the messages sent by other members it's slightly confusing to understand who is actually talking or advising who.


Kind regards,

The video is very informative. I am really excited to be here. Just the ability to start building a business with help, learning along the way, and not having the whole process thrown at you in one ebook or blog post. I have been trying to learn to start an internet business for years and I was alone not having a clue if I was doing anything right.

Being able to follow a step by step process is so exciting. And for the first time being able to have a real online business I love and that will generate income one day feels so realistic and so much more possible.

Thank you WA for this opportunity.I only wsh I found ya'll sooner. :)

Be aware you only have 5 days left with full access so why not at least try to do some things yourself.

Its always best to use a free SiteRubix to practice with and that way you can make as many mistakes as you want.

This way you get to learn and practice and as you know practice makes perfect.

Wealthy Affiliate has streamlined free successful training and community support. Lots of online resources and information is available about how to make online business work, but most of the people providing information are also the people making money off the post viewer by making the site visitor pay money for more information. WA is different because the training to make money is totally free. The resources added to WA are a membership fee but unnecessary unless you have actually started making money. I can benefit because of the piece of mind that if I follow the training I will be receiving will get results with no startup costs.

I just joined Premium today, on June 1, 2019, and so, I am going back over reading and viewing some of the materials which I began with on the day of my initial discovery of this Online Wealthy Affiliate Offer. I truly believe that the thing I'm going to enjoy the most about Wealthy Affiliate is that I can study the materials and work at my very own unique pace. Unfortunately, I have been known to suffer quite a bit from the condition called Anxiety and Depression. Some days I just have to shut everything down and rest in bed. I really do want to succeed in my goal of becoming financially independent, and not having to go through the highly stressful routine of leaving my house to commute to a job with a boss and mundane activity, which only causes me to become ill and tired. This video tour was very helpful Kyle, and I am looking forward to progressing through the program even more now.
Thanks! Sincerely,
Dedra J Nowlin;

Hi I would start with an interest that you believe you can write long blogs about at least once a week, preferably more. You also need to do some research on the web to see if they are a good business. Here is a link from Jay to show you how to do this and how he researches a niche to see if it is viable .
I hope this helps you.

Any one of those would make a wonderful niche. With so many interests, just focus on the one that you believe will be the easiest to create content for. Which one does your gut tell you will flow more from your heart and mind? Whichever niche you choose is going to require a ton of content, and the last thing you want to do is pick something that's going to be a struggle, or worse, turn into a "job".

I am trying to do every task step by step. Normally I would rush through and try doing things on my own, however on this, I am willing to change. I need to be successful using this website. The video described basic navigation among the site and various windows and drop down menus. It also describes some benefits that you will receive, if you upgrade to premium. Now if you would excuse me, I am off to the next task to find out more!

What are some great ideas for a website? I am a painter, I enjoy blogging, I'm a nurse and I enjoy making people feel better. I also wanted to say I agree with angiHep, some people just honestly don't have the finances to pray for the premium membership. I am currently unemployed and also cannot afford to upgrade at this time. Probably in the future but not now unfortunately.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
Depending o what kind of painter you are a website on the painting or best art supplies is a good niche website. You can also do a wide variety of niches in the health and wellness genre, too many to list here and a choice you would have to make based on your knowledge of the subject.

You can stay a free member for as long as you like but can only take the first 10 of 50 lessons. But when you do decide to upgrade to premium, you will still be able to get the first month discount of $19. This discount does not expire after 7 days.
Reply
And if it’s monthly, how can someone be motivated to pay for the second and subsequent months when he/she has clearly made no tangible progress online financially let alone in terms of leads! In my opinion, the 7 days seem to be quite limited within which someone has the discount on premium coz by that time most members are still getting acquainted with the system and have many questions that may need answers.
Reply
AJTrimble1 Premium
Your motivation should come from your desire to build your own business and not work for someone else, not from anything we say or do.

As far as making "tangible" progress, you must keep in mind that this is in no way get-rich-quick. It's going to take time, patience, and a boatload of hard work. It's a business like any other. The only difference is you don't have all the typically associated overhead that goes along with a traditional business (office space, storefront, warehouse, etc.)

The choice is yours.

Hi Richbanks,

You're right that you may not have made any money in a couple of months. Everything in life is a risk to some degree. To me this is a relatively low risk option as it's not that much money to explore. You can always pull out if it's not working for you. Only you can tell if it's of value to you by exploring, by what you experience and how you feel. This is not a magical solution, it does take hard work, practice, learning and evolving which ultimately leads to your success. Personally I feel Wealthy Affiliate is what it says it is and is aligned with good values which means a lot to me as there are so many companies that have hidden agendas.

Good luck with your WA experience and hope it aligns to what you are looking for!

Good afternoon, Paula.

I would recommend starting here if you haven't already: If you have any questions, feel free to reach me on my profile.
Reply
AJTrimble1 Premium
Welcome to WA, Paula. You can get started here: Just be patient and work through each lesson in order. Most importantly, make sure you complete the task checklist at the end of each lesson before moving on to the next one. This is critical because later lessons are often built on the foundation work you did previously.

Also, don't get ahead of yourself. The program is set up in a very specific order for you to get the most benefit. It takes a bit more time to do it this way, but you can be assured when you get to the end that your site is working properly and primed for success.

If you have any more questions or need anything, please don't hesitate to ask. We're all here to help :-)

Hello WA members,

I'm very new and just completed the first video. Previously, maybe 6 years ago, I tried to build my own website with a particular niche. It was based on drop-shipping. However, most of it was alone. The help I was told I would receive was not very reliable. Basically, I failed.
I want to thank you Kyle and Carson for being so upfront and clear with WA. The first video was great. Very clear & time monitored (Kyle you didn't fly through it)! Thank you. I even had a chance to take notes.

Thanks very much!

I've actually had my expectations blown away so far when it come to how well the learning videos were done. If you pay attention from start to finish they literally not just cover ever possible function both premium and regular accounts offer they go above and beyond to explain each function at the perfect pace which makes it easy to completely take in everything that's being explain. Very professional helpful a d informative. It really dose give you the feeling your success means everything to them. So fare WA has made me feel like if you just take the time to really listen success is simple gurenteed, I'm mean I think the only thing that was left out was the phycic predicting the exact date your life will change.

It's really no different from the pursuit of anything worth obtaining. That famous saying easy. Come easy go. Because there's no appreciation for something that didn't require you to dedicate your self to.

Truthfully I won't lie when I first clicked that button to join I had absolutely no faith in my time being rewarded. It took 3 videos to completely change my whole outlook on this interesting adventure. Very impressed and eager to continuing to educate my self

Hi Kyle, okay thanks! Now that you mention SiteRubix, I have another question: what is the purpose of using SiteRubix if we have already started to purchase domains?

Thank you and Happy Easter!

Hi, just hope to give you a bit of insight. I know that you are looking at the program and wondering what is the hook. You make money by placing affiliate ads on your blog site which you will build with your training here. Everything is included. No surprises. YOu can use the free domain that is given to you or you can buy your own or transfer one that you already have. Everyone will help you. The community is amazing. I have been here 4 months now.
Once you have your website with great content that you write, Google will rank you and sometime within that first year you will add your affiliate programs (which you will learn how in training) and you will begin to make commissions. It's just a quick beginning summary, but I have to say, you will be good at this. We all are doing it and so why not you! Best of Luck. I will follow you and as you follow others you will be able to ask more questions and learn from others also. Linda

My question is and always be that anyone if put things together can complete the training but how to use the training to make money. We all are here to make money. According to my age, I may not have that much time to invest without any return. Please suggest. Thanks.

The training walks you through the exact process you need to follow to build a successful business online (that is, make money). :)

I have spent some time breaking down the process in the most simplistic way possible. Success online is at the core a 4 step process and I have broken them down within this video: Broken, down, the process looks like this:

Step 1: Choose your niche
Step 2: Build your website/content
Step 3: Get rankings in search engines (leads to traffic)
Step 4: Monetize your traffic (the make money part, through affiliate programs, etc!)

This applies in absolutely every niche and as you work through the training here at WA, you are going to be walked through this exact process. This is fundamental for ANY success online.

If you have any further questions let me know Alfred. :)

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. We’re happy to meet you, Alfred.

I know it can be a bit overwhelming at first, particularly if you have no experience, but you must learn to trust the system. Just follow the training program step-by-step and try not to move on to the next lesson until you have completed all the recommended tasks and checked them off the checklist. This is important because later lessons are often built on the foundation work you did previously, and skipping ahead will ultimately lead to failure. You can definitely make money; many members make money every day. But you have to build a strong foundation first. Don't get in a rush and take your time to do it right.

If you have any questions or need anything, please don't hesitate to ask. We're all here to help :-)

Kyle, I want you to know that I am "blown away" at your content, tools, your professionalism and the open mindset of all the other members to help each other. Before joining this past weekend, I spent almost two weeks talking to another company (Hint RR tish tish) and didn't see any of these tools. It was a hard sell all the way and an expensive proposition for sure. Thanks for your's and Carson's vision to create this opportunity.

You can change your username in your account settings. :)

And yes, when you finish the training course for premium, either affiliate bootcamp or online entrepreneur certification, you will have a website and be creating posts for it regularly. You will have social media related to your website and be engaging people there to help create traffic and build trust. You will also have found and be using affiliate programs to begin to earn income.

You can actually change your user name in at your profile area. that is not a big issue.
your concern is, about promoting a certain product and blog and etc. you can start now promoting any product based on your niche. and you can also promote product from affiliate websites, like amazon, eBay, and etc. you can also promote Wealthy Affiliate. it is all up to you.

Just stay focus on your niche when promoting a product. you can now start selling and promoting as long as you already start the foundation of your website.

Thank you so much I hope i answer your questions.

Merven.

I just signed up yesterday and I am so excited to get started. Finding WA is a true blessing. I have wanted to set up a website for a while but its complicated and overwhelming :/ And with having a 6mo old and trying to start my business - the 2 things I can not waste are time & money...not to mention energy! WA seems to be the answer to my prayers this far. There's so much support & useable information available. :)

I’m new and I’m skeptical.

Read the books about leaving the rat race ‘Rich Dad’ etc, spent quite a bit on training on how to make money online/quit your job using social media etc only to find I’m simply in a funnel to be upsold seriously expensive personal coaching programs.

I actually have 20 years experience in marketing so really felt I should be able to quickly and easily earn thousands per month. Not so.

So...... why is this different? Is it genuinely going to help me learn skills/have tools I can use to make money? How much time investment does it take to learn and implement?

Does it matter that I’m UK based?

Thank you 😊

merlynmac Premium
First off, Welcome! You have 2 main training courses. The OEC course is all about picking a niche, building your site, attracting visitors and monetizing it. The Affiliate Bootcamp is similar but focuses on WA as the affiliate program.

This program is very different. No promises of making money with little to no effort or getting rich quick, etc. The training is top-notch and the platform is pretty amazing.

That's all well and good but the absolute best part of WA is the community. There's always someone to help when you need it.

It's a business. As such, it requires time and effort on your part. Each situation is different but, as a ballpark generalization, I'd say don't expect much for 6 months to a year.

As for being in the UK, there are several members here that are based there.
Reply
AJTrimble1 Premium
We have many UK based members, so no it doesn't matter. As far as the program, other than possibly upgrading to a Premium membership and the purchase of a domain name, there are no extra fees and certainly no required "upsells". Everything is out in the open; what you see is what you get.

For what it's worth, I, too, have been through my fair share of less-than-stellar programs and even outright scams. A lot of our members have similar backgrounds as well. There is nothing get-rich-quick about WA. It is a legitimate business like any other; it will take time and a lot of hard work, but it is certainly doable if you are patient. Moreover, the overhead and expenses are virtually nothing when compared to a traditional brick-and-mortar.

As for "personal coaching" you have access to the entire community. There are hundreds--if not thousands--of members who are successfully running niche affiliate sites as we speak. The process works.

One thing to keep in mind regarding your experience in marketing. Any new site is simply going to take time because Google has to first find and index it, and then will watch it for a bit to assess the quality and determine where it should rank in relation to what else it out there. Nothing we bring to the table (I have an MBA) will change that. Will your past experience help in the long run? Of course. But it won't speed up the natural process. Think of it like farming. You can't just plant the seed today and harvest the crop tomorrow. Everything has a season.

Hope this helps.

Love the farming analogy!

Guess I'd better start planting, otherwise harvest time will come anyway and I will have no crops!

Hi, I signed up two days ago. Even though I'm not new to working from home and affiliate marketing, I have not been able to make money from home is because I don't know how to promote. So many programs say sign up here and make xyz in two days and I find out there's an up-sell. I'm sick of that. I really want to learn how I can be successful working from home.
Reply
AJTrimble1 Premium
The only "upsell" here is the move to premium should you desire. Once that is done, you will have full access to everything, including the training and the community where you will find many successful entrepreneurs like yourself. If you have any questions or need anything, just let us know :-)

KSagendorph Premium
As AJ said, the only upsell is to go Premium. Going Premium is actually a reasonable option since the cost for a year can be easily covered in a month. Another investment, which is an option, is to purchase your own domain name. Again the cost is minimal compared to your options outside of WA.

Well if you're partners in the same business, you can share your login I guess. A lot of couples do that.

Dear Kyle and community,

We are so excited to be a part of of the community. We are all about BBQ, anything BBQ. We love flavor, family, friendship, food and fun, which all come together over a Sunday BBQ. At The BBQtioner, we are all about creating memories with our BBQ seasonings and your BBQ techniques. Our journey started long before we knew how BBQ would be a focal point in our lives.

Why?...because nearly everyone has their own special way of preparing food for their families and friends. What better way of showing love than to fix a special meal and enjoy the way people enjoy, together.

Our goal is to bring The BBQtioner's seasonings to as many BBQtioners as possible. We love sharing recipes and techniques. And by the way, we think that BBQtioner should be a new word in the dictionary: The BBQtioner; "A practitioner of BBQ."

And our BBQ seasonings are: Drop Dead Delicious!!!

Get ready to get busy.

Much love and BBQ, Lorraine and Suzy

PS: One last question, We clicked through the Premium process and the State portion of the credit card prompts would not go to our chosen state, anyone have suggestions? Thank you.

Howy, wow, there's a lot there, and just th tip of th iceberg I know. Still tho, I'm xcited and eager to jump in. I'm wondering where'd be th best place to get advice on setting up some kind of passive income, in the shortest possible time, if you'd have any suggestions tha'd be great. There's just so many directions 1 could go in, it's hard to choose one to focus on. I'm honest and hard working and willing to invest in myself, and those around me for the benefit of ourselves and those less well off and unable to, but who are deserving.

I'm leaning 2ward the affiliate line, or drop shipping route to begin with, and can relate to earning while learning. Every day's a school day, and I fully agree with the paying it forward.

So any ideas on how to plot a course from here?
Reply
merlynmac Premium
The options really are endless. I suggest picking a niche close to your heart...something you're passionate about. This will make the "word" more fun and keep you motivated. My first site is all about drones. My next site is actually promoting WA and then my next 2 sites after that are going to be SCUBA and Sailing....All of these are passions of mine (WA became one unexpectedly but I love it here!).
Reply
AJTrimble1 Premium
Yes... pick a niche that you are truly passionate about -- one that you won't get tired of creating content for -- and then follow the training program step-by-step. Don't get in a hurry. Make sure you actually complete the tasks at the end of each lesson before moving on, because many of the later lessons are based on tasks you have already done.

If something doesn't make sense, view the video as many times as you need until it "clicks". If you are still not sure, or you just need a hand, post a comment or jump on Live Chat. We're all here to help :-)

I scrolled back about seven days or so, and I couldn't find this question so forgive me if it's been asked before: To clarify, is it possible to build a site and make money with just a starter membership? Do I have all the tools to build a functional website that can sell a product or service right now, as a starter member?

My thinking is, since I'm out of work disabled and applying for benefits (which could take a very long time), I'd like to fund my premium membership with money I make from sites that I build as a Starter.

Can I do this?
Reply
AJTrimble1 Premium
Of course. You have all the tools to build a highly functional website at your disposal and your free website is yours forever to do with as you wish.

Just realize that you do lose access to the support community and are limited to the first 10 lessons of the training after the first week. Thus, it's not impossible, but it will be more difficult to do it this way.

But as long as you are willing to put in the work and not give up, you can make it work :-)

truthfully that is the biggest problem of being an African member. You can stay free as long as you wish and there will be no pressure for you to upgrade. Obviously, there are benefits to an upgrade you get deeper training and access to training that is only for premium members. My advice would be stick with a free for now and see where you get.

no the premium membership is $49 per month and doesn't change

Kyle Premium
The membership that you are on is a Starter membership, which is completely free. There is one upgrade that you can make here and it is the Premium membership, which is the key to the community. Premium is $19 the first month, then it is $49 per month after the first month.

This includes absolutely everything you need to create and grow a business online from the training, weekly live classes, he support, the tools, the websites/hosting, the mentoring, network, exclusive access to all updates...you name it.

We also have a yearly option of $359 which is a big discount and that works out to be $29 per month. You can choose either or.

Hope this helps you out Stimela and if you have any further questions let me know.

Success is moving forward in spite of your fears and frustrations. There's no reason to feel overwhelmed, because you are 100% in control of your journey.

Follow the training, take each lesson one at a time (and repeat said lesson as many times as necessary until you "get" it), and make sure you check of the task list on each before moving on to the next.

You have definitely come to the right place. Wealthy Affiliate is awesome.

I look at it like this: You can get a domain and web hosting anywhere. And you might (might!) be able to get similar training elsewhere as well, although in my opinion not as good.

But the true power of WA is the community. Here you will find thousands of other members all going through the same process and all willing to help. And while we certainly have our fair share of experts, I have learned a ton from new members as well, even if it is nothing more than just learning a different way of looking at a particular challenge. That's the beauty of it; it's like we all belong to one giant mastermind group.

Hello my name is April and I am so grateful that this opportunity is here. I am so excited and at the same time scared to get myself wrapped up in the belief that finally something truly that will get me somewhere. I have had so many wonderful inspiring ideas and the seemingly get destroyed or I am hindered in some way and that there makes it hard to believe and trust those who come along next to sell you a dream you actually once believed in. So I am one that is willing to give my all to those that can offer the genuine help and correct advice. So I maybe be a little hesitant but I will get where I am more open rather than aperhensive.

Thank you, Kyle, for an easy and informative walk-through.

And, although it's not important in the grand scheme of things, I appreciate that you know that niche is pronounced "neesh" not "nitch" and that you DON'T start your presentations with "Hey, wassup everybody."

I have several websites, mostly built with WordPress and Thrive Themes and one with Shopify. I use two hosts, one here in Australia and one in the US. I own dozens of domain names and lots of content.

I'm looking to consolidate most if not all of it onto the WA platform, which will hopefully give me a lot more focus.

LOL, that is debatable depending on who you get. I always say, how do you pronounce "quiche", is it kitch. If so then, nitch makes sense. :)

Love your tolerance Kyle, but they are both French words and deserve the French pronunciations of neesh and keesh. Americans usually don't realize that they are the only people in the world who (or at least some of them) miss-pronounce them as nitch and kitch. Along with their back to front dates :-) Mind, some of us Aussies pronounce quiche as quickie but that has another connotation altogether.

Good overview. T

The thing for anybody really new to realize is that the best way to approach something like this to view it like a plate of spaghetti.

Yes it is a lot.
Yes you will not see the hidden meatballs.
Yes you can add 'stuff' later (I like black olives, mushrooms, and jalapenos in mine...)

The key is to take one bite at a time, or one step at a time.

Nobody is going to eat a plate of spaghetti in one big gulp; nobody is going to get rich overnight using WA.

I can see there are a lot of moving parts here...

I think it will be critical for me and any other serious would be wealthy affiliates to take one step at a time.

That would be a savings of the initial build which is usually more than
$500.00 the quote you have given that would be the maintenance fees monthly.

So by you doing all your own work then you are saving $450.00 a month in
maintenance fees - which WA takes care of all the updates and SSL on
and the initial cost to build a website.

Besides this is now your website with no one else having control but you!

Does this make some sense - yes - what you own no one can duplicate
and it is yours to do with as you see fit :)

Thanks for your quick reply! So a website through WA will have all the best software updates to keep up to the ever changing hardware? What I’m referring to is when you see a webpage viewed differently on an iPhone 5 vs a 6 and differently again on a desktop.

Becky,
WA handles all of this for you - just remember to check all your stats -
they are provided and the tools here are amazing - seriously with all
the knowledge and experience you gain here - building websites for
yourself then you can offer them to others using Local SEO and
make a killing - freelance writing - possibilities are endless :)
Enjoy the training - and Premium includes Jay's weekly training
live every Friday this is something you do not want to miss up to
date information every week on how and why to do what needs done
with websites.

The biggest deal is the 500.00 dollars. Why pay that money out when you could be making that money for yourself.

The difference is that we offer 100x more here, for a fraction of the cost. What you get within our yearly premium membership that is $359 per year ($299 until later today) is the most comprehensive and advanced process in the industry.

Building a website is a straightforward and simple process and you have access to the easiest website building in the world here at WA...along with resources and support to help you through the website building process. Plus you will be building your website out in a way that will lead to search engine rankings and long term success online.

thanks, the other question is that this website is linked to facebook business marketing setup which I have stopped because it was eating away my funds at the time. Now the facebook setup is also not working for me. Can you guys assist with this? the other thing is this website is linked to a shopify account which is also not doing much at this stage, will definitely first learn more about affiliate before getting back to e-commerce. Without traffic you don't have a business?

Well I would ditch Shopify. I spent 6 months trying to get my website working over there and there was no help. You mainly have young people setting up websites simply to sell them and make a quick few bucks. The other thing is that one website with them is US$29 and if you want to set up more than one it costs US$29 for every one you set up whereas here on Wealthy Affiliate you can have up to 50 on Premium for the same US$49 a month. PLUS, and it is a big PLUS - you get ALL the education and training, the support of the co-founders and webinars from Jay and most importantly you get the support of the community.
As to the Facebook issue - you need a chatbot - you also need to have a presence on all the social media outlets and LinkedIn is a great business platform. There are some other things I could mention but I would have to do that through my e-mail address because I do not want to put anything on here that could get me banned. You would have to private message me.

Hi, Just joined recently and warming up, I like the platform the community, the professionalism.
If you have a website from outside of WA from Go Daddy and you need to build this website, can you use it here? This website I had since April this year and not much going on, but needs to be build properly.

Fantastic walk through video it was delivered well and explained how to use the dashboard etc well. I have taken plenty of notes off the video and will complete the tasks throughout the day.

Your about me page is in essence, a page just about you. Why are you interested in this particular niche and why do you want to help others out? Share that along with a bit about yourself and an image and you will be just fine.

There is no right or wrong with an about me page, it is simply a page about you and you can dictate what is said on that page (and you can always update this as you progress within your niche).

Here is some training that will help you out on the About Me page. If you want me to take a look at it after it is published I will be happy to help you out. Hope this helps Cindy!
Reply
nathaniell Premium
The About Me page can be anything about YOU that you want to talk about. I usually make it personal and casual, but don't feel pressure to say anything private you don't want to be public!

I always relate it to my niche in some way. Why is this topic interesting to you? Why did you start a website about it? What do you hope to accomplish with the website?

People will be very curious about who you are. The About Me page is always one of the most popular pages on a website. Be sure to include a picture of yourself, and see if you can get one of you doing something related to your niche.

Hope this helps!

I am totally impressed with the level of knowledge and professionalism within the WA community.

There definitely is not such thing as getting rich quick, but there is such thing as getting rich and building a long term and sustainable business. That is what we teach here and we are realistic about the process. We teach what works not just now, but what will work 5-10 years from now.

Andrew, This is a business you are starting and no one can tell you how long it will take to be successful. If you bought a bricks and mortar business no one could predict whether you would be successful or not and this is the same - it is just that it is a different platform. Some people get it working quickly - others take longer but if this is something you want it wont matter how long it takes just as long as it works. It does work and you will not be scammed, you wont be upsold on anything and there is no end of help from the live chat community and the co-founders. That is all I can say - the rest is up to you

To complete the full training you’ll want to upgrade to a Premium Member. The first month is $19 then it’s $49/month. There are no other costs other than buying our own domain if you so choose. And the average price for that is usually between $10-15 per year. Otherwise the training, access to the community, live webinars, a classroom filled with education, you can host a total of 50 websites - are all included.

Hello Maree and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. You can remain a free member for as long as you like.
You will lose access to some of the benefits that you get for the first week.
Here is a link that will show you what you can do if you stay as a free member. Please be sure to click the like button.
I also wanted to let you know of an event that Wealthy Affiliate will be holding soon.
On Black Friday through Cyber Monday ( November 23 - Nov 26,2018 you can get yearly membership for only $299. That is less than $1.00 a day. It comes out to about $0.82 a day.

I know that seems like a lot to come up with at once, but it will save you a lot by doing this.You will also be able to the membership for that price every year after.

You do not have to go yearly though. It is all up to you. You can still create your business as a free member, you will just have to do more on your own.

I hope this helps : )

Great platform!

Since you're not yet a premium member, you couldn't host a private domain, anyway. Presuming that you are going to become a premium member, Why wouldn't you just transfer your domain to WA and host it here.

I'm willing to say that you can't get this level of service from your current domain all in one place PLUS training and community support.

Shorter answer is no. The software here is designed to be a one-stop shop kind of thing and they do a great job of that.

while i have joined this site new in the matter of the first couple of minutes, i am noticing small things that im confused with.

Great introductory video. I wish there was a way to leap forward to the level I feel I'm at but I'm afraid that even if I were allowed to do that I would miss the one thing that has been holding me back, the one thing that I need to know, which is why I'm here. I tried doing affiliate marketing on my own for many years and failed miserably. I'm sure there were many things I either did wrong or just plain missed. Just when I thought I knew enough to become successful and get traffic to my site along came something new that I needed to know. There is a lot to know and I agree with Kyle that the solid foundation is critical. I am in the process of putting everything I know on a shelf for now so I can build that solid foundation without any distractions. If I'm spending $50 per month for a membership I plan to get as much as I can out of it.

Thank you Kyle for the walk through. That was a lot of information to take in. I did take lots of notes. I am afraid that I will have a problem choosing a niche. I am not sure what I would be good at doing. I do know that I love babies and all things associated with babies. I keep my 18 month old granddaughter just about everyday and we have so much fun. She is pictured there with me, but of course she was just a newborn then! Do you think maybe doing some drop shipping with baby and children items would be a good idea?
Reply
onmyownterms Premium
Drop-shipping is much more complex and more difficult to do than affiliate marketing. You have to process payments, calculate shipping, develop a shopping cart for your site, etc., it is often not worth the hassle when you consider the shipping differences. That being said, it's still personal preference - it's your business, after all.
Reply
Kyle Premium
A niche can honestly be anything, what are you passionate about? What are you interested in?

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. :)

And drop shipping, like Mel said, may not be the best starting point as there is much more leg work required than affiliate marketing. But what you promote and how you promote it is up to you, the first focus is building and establishing authority, rank and traffic.

As you test drive this platform with your free starter account, the 2 free websites you're able to start building are there so you can actually start building and get a real idea of how this all works :) Once you see how the lessons and video tutorials are working and you like what you see, I always advise to immediately go premium and take full advantage of the $19 first month you qualify for. Then, with the click of a button you can actually move your site and its contents from the free siterubix domain to a domain of your very own. You'll own it, it will be your own real estate, and you'll have full support 24/7. Also, once premium you'll have live chat of course along with all the other bells and whistles that come with it. In the meantime, you can always ask me anything at all. I'm here as your personal support coach and I'm always available to help you in every way I can :)

This looks like an excellent platform especially for someone like me who knows nothing about affiliate marketing but really interested about it. I do have a question about premium benefits. Am I understanding it correctly that premium members will not get the features of site comments, feedback, and domain without charges. They will still have to earn cash credit to purchase those features for their websites?
Reply
JKulk1 Premium
Site comment credits are earned by you actually giving comments yourself. Again Feedback is a shared thing. You give feedback and people will give you feedback. 25 Rubix domain names are available free of charge and you can purchase more domain names' or transfer others you might already own, for a further 25 free sites. Hope his helps (No cash is actually involved). Jim

It appears that for $49 a month you are getting a wagon load of stuff that are add on sales elsewhere. Looking forward to getting the entire system working for me.

Also, one thing I have learned over the years is when you watch a video, DON'T just watch the video.

Get a notebook and have a pen in hand to take notes.

It will help keep you from woolgathering over what happened at work or what you need to get together for dinner. Remember, this time spent training and learning is time spend on YOUR BUSINESS, your future. Make it count. I certainly plan to.

Taking notes is also a great idea. As a premium member, you can also go back through the training how ever many times you want. This includes the live trainings as well. They keep a file of the previous videos so that members can view them whenever.

Outstanding Walk-Through video. Thanks Kyle! I finally watched it after being a member for over a month now. Lol.

Kyle, what really strikes me when watching your videos is that you seem very real, down to earth, relatable. You communicate well and get straight down to business without using any hype or wasting time selling the potential of getting rich, which makes this seem more like a real business. Like success is a matter of fact for some of us, and sadly may not be so much for some of us, based on each individual's investment into the training and activity required. I don't know which I'll be (finishing anything is not really my MO), but I appreciate your style and authenticity.

This is not so much a question as it is a comment. I am a full time employee. I plan to retire in about 3 years. I want to get into some kind of online business to supplement my retirement. This program appears to be what I'd like to do. However, since I still work full time, it will take away many hours of the 7 days of the premium opportunities from me. Just wanted to express my concern on that. It seems to me that a middle ground could be found for folks like me so we can still take full advantage of what your program offers before it is no longer available. Thanks

HI there - I don't know whether you have started looking around but I can assure you that it would not take you more than a few days to get your website up and running, and, if you are starting a business you have to put the time into it whether it be an online business or a commercial one. You are in a better place than most because at least you have a job and have 3 years to work on your site before you retire. Most people on here are trying to get an income from their online business just to survive. Also if you have a job you have the income to pay for your NEW START in this field whereas a lot of others are struggling with.
If there is anything I can help you with I will be happy to do so.

I just needed to clarify so that I can calculate things to suit my situation for now. Looking forward to completing the training.

Am I right in understanding that I can be successful even if I don’t upgrade to the Premium membership? My husband wants me to go back to work. When I explained that I want to become an Affiliate Marketer, he gave me his famous eye roll. He is extremely skeptical. And I’m afraid to fail. I want tp prove him wrong.

The only way to fail is not to TRY. There are a lot of people who are just Affiliate marketers. It is a lucrative business with hundreds of thousands of people out there want people like us to affiliate with them and help them sell their products. Take a leap of faith, go premium and get all the training/education and help that you will not get anywhere else. If you look at the costs of this type of education elsewhere you would be put off but here you can get started for just $19 for the first month and you can have your website build and running within the first week. It is like anything worthwhile - you have to put in before you can get anything out and while it may take a little time you have to start somewhere. We are all here to help you and if your husband is skeptical then get him to do some research on affiliate marketers .
If the is anything I can do to help please feel free to call on me at any time either through the this medium or you can contact me through my e-mail address which I will give you if you want it.
There are people on here in their 80's so if they can do it so can you - GO FOR IT

I can appreciate your husband's skepticism. Affiliate marketing is different and perhaps a bit unbelievable for people like us who have had to work for a living.

When I joined Wealthy Affiliate a little more than 3 years ago, I had my doubts too. I didn't make any money for the first few months and I almost quit. Then, in spite of myself, I made a sale and earned a whopping $1 commission. A few months later, while I was away camping at the beach, my website earned $500 in two days. That made me a believer.

One of the many beautiful things about affiliate marketing is that it's like building a digital machine that earns money 24/7. The more skillful you get at affiliate marketing, the more money you can make.

As someone else commented, the only way you can fail at this is if you quit. We have helped thousands of members build successful online businesses and we will help you too.

Technically, you can be successful at the free membership level, but it is much more challenging and labor intensive. If you want this to work for you, I strongly encourage you to try premium for a month. It only costs $19. Lunch for two at Subways costs more than that.

If you need to get a job, that's one thing, but if you can give yourself the opportunity to really try affiliate marketing, you can build income streams that will change your life.

I think it is possible to get successful with the free membership if you know what you're doing.
If you want to learn this business from scratch I think you'd need to be able to access all the training and the live community that helps you on the way.
Of course, you can research all the knowledge and skills necessary your self on the internet or some free training platforms. But I give it a small chance really.
There come so many questions up and to answer all these without the help you get here is very, very time-consuming.

Looking forward to starting my journey to financial freedom with you guys! I currently am a middle school band director, and while it is very fulfilling intrinsically, I can't say the same about take-home pay. Ultimately, I would love to spend more of my time, throughout the year, with my family. So, my goal is to become a lucrative and successful affiliate marketer.

I just got my first Website up and 5 post written. Site looks great and it’s high on google ranking. But I have no links on site yet. I still have a lot of training to do and am working on getting all training completed. How do I get the WA link on my website? That is what my first “Niche” is, “getting an online business started”.
Thanks

Hi! Im new to all of this and also feeling a little overwhelmed!
Are there any of you that wouldnt mind sharing your experience with affiliate marketing with me; and how long it took you to start earning and how much it was? IS this really worth the time and effort?

Thank you :) x

Hi Sarah,
dont' know where you are but I am in Australia and it is definitely worth the effort. There is so much help on this platform. I have been away for a year getting myself back on my feet after the disaster of the GFC but this is only one method of earning an income. If there is anything I can do to help please just let me know but I would stick with this program. This is the only place you will get educated for free -while you build your business. I will message you private and give you my e-mail addy .

Hi again Sarah, Can't private message you as you have not gone premium but I would advise that you do that as quickly as you can and get you own .com domain if you can. I get mine through Go Daddy and they are only about $13/14.
Also you need to decide on a niche - what are you passionate about? What you are really passionate about you will work at and have much more knowledge than starting out on something you know nothing about. As I said get back to me and I will do what I can to help

So do you create a website about literally anything?

So for example if I had a website about something random like tea bags (it wouldn’t be that but just an example) how would I then advertise products on it? Or is that not how it works. Ima. Little confused.

Don't get confused. You can do anything you like. Sit down with a piece of paper and write down what you want to do. Do you want to make a permanent living from this medium? What is it that you are passionate about, cake decorating,horses, cats,teabags, jewwellery, hair clips - the world is your oyster but when you decide then there are little sub niches that you explore. I would take a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon or whenever and just think about what it is that YOU want to sell - what YOU want to achieve. Like anything - if you build a solid foundation the rest will follow. Bit like building a house - the foundation is the most important part or else the whole thing will fall down. You could be into Music and there are so many sub niches in that genre like sheet music, equipment, instruments etc.
Does anay of that help?

Thanks Lee Ann,
Finally had a friend offer me a roof over my head so made the move from outback Queensland to the Adelaide Hills about a year ago now and have been working my butt off as a consultant for a company in Sydney that has 3 divisions. Recently took on a consultancy from a Melbourne firm, registered 10 business identities and now have about 12 .coms. Had a stint at Shopify but everytime you want to start a new business it COSTS and there is very little help so ditched that idea and came back to WA . This is the first time I have been in a stable place to work since the GFC so now that I have things working in the background it is time to get back here and get the website that are already up and running, making an income.
Life is hard for a 74 yo starting again but I have plenty of energy and get up and go and I will succeed as I have my eye on another million dollar property.
Thanks for blessing me - I am off to watch my Christian programs now before cooking a roast for lunch and back to work this afternoon.
Thank you for taking the time to encourage me - I really appreciate it and hopefully I will now get back into the top 200 where I was before.

Thank you so much - I really needed to hear that this morning. My life would be nothing without God in it and he gives me the ability to rise above all the rejection, pain and difficulities. After I lost my house and ended up sleeping in my car for over a year NOTHing ever happened to me. I seemed always to be under HIS protection even to the police making passes in their cars to make sure I was okay. I raised 7 childen almost singlehandedly but not one of them offered me a bed, a hot meal or even a cup of water and they are all church going, born again Christians and that I simply do not understand. Two of them are Pastors themselves. I have started writing a trilogy named - the rejected child, the rejected wife and the rejected mother and hopefully the first part will be out by Mother's Day next year. I want others to know that there is a way we can overcome all rejection, pain suffering and live a healthy fulfilling life and so I am an encourager and I am happiest when I am encouring and helping others . Again, thank you so much for your kind words.
Be Blessed, Take Care and Stay Safe,
you have made me cry...........................

Hi Jopat,
please do not be in a hurry - there is a lot to take in and if you skip over something because you know it or think you know it, it will come back to bite you later on. Better to take it slow and steady and make sure you understand everything from the base up and you will get where you are going much quicker. We are all here to help and if there is anything I can do please do not be afraid to ask. While we are all busy we are not too busy to help someone new and I wish you all the very best.

Sure, no issues at all.

Work at your own pace, this is definitely not a race and as you move through the training you are going to see some really good progress. I always say, as long as you are moving forward you are moving in the right direction. :)

As you start to see progress and results, you will naturally dedicate more time to your business, but I can absolutely assure you that with some hard work and dedication here, you are going to see results.

If you need anything going forward, let me know.

Thanks Kyle but I have been here for a well over 18 months - just moved States that's all, and working full time but I have now dedicated a time slot to work on my websites and progress through ALL the training but thanks for the heads up. Great to know that you are still as passionate as ever about us.

Just been through the walkthrough. Most impressive. Both site itself and Kyle’s explanation. A couple of days I now have to sign up for that first month on offer. Makes complete sense from where I’m sitting. Kyle and Carson, congratulations to you both for getting all this pretty spot on. You’ve been blessed with a lot of imagination, latent talent (which you’ve obviously worked hard at). You’ve gained and adapted your expertise, giving a lot of people hope, quite simply, that they’ve ‘arrived’ (at the river/ well). Now it’s up to them. The water is most drinkable. Equal to all this seems to be your ‘attitude’. (I ‘blame’ your parents for imbuing so much in you both! So let’s be thanking them too!) (I think I’ve said enough here, don’t you? [Smile]. )

Could I make a suggestion. I didn't get started right away and time lapsed and I decided to start this and soon realized that I could not ask any questions just to get started because I wasn't a premium member. I am on a fixed income and money is very tight. I was making progress until I reached setting my goals and it wouldn't accept my goals. I have had to start all over with a new screen name just to get help. It would be nice to at least be able to get basic support. I will now start over and continue here. Thanks, Mike
