Finally, after so many distractions and delays I managed to watch this First WA video.
Awesome! ... worth watching if I plan to be successful in Online Marketing which I aim to.

This is just like a Quick Look at the Instruction Manual on "How to Fly the Spaceship to Financial Freedom"! Now I know How to ... as they say "The journey of a thousand mile starts with a Single Step - The Right Wise Step. A wise man once said, "If All else Fails, READ the Instruction Manual".

I am no longer overwhelmed nor confused. Thank you for this "Road Map" to my "Treasure Chest".
More Power!

You got the hang of it. WA is truly a roadmap to online success. Many people fail to realize that and think that they can earn money with just minimal effort. WA gives you the recipe in order to succeed, but believe me until you get there it will take years. Choose a niche that you like and are passionate writing about. Stop investing your time in things that do not progress you and let you grow. Focus on your website and other things that matter to you in your life. And don't overwork yourself. Yes, you should consider this your daily work, but grinding through it is not the way to go.

Good luck on your journey!

Thank you, Kyle. The first video helped a great deal, now I don't feel like I'm drifting around so much. The most helpful part for me was pointing out what the top links, pencil, W, and so on opened. I was almost afraid to click on one before. Now I'm not so worried about exploring. :)

Yeah, never worry about exploring. You can feel completely safe opening and exploring every menu here within WA, they all will add value to your experience and your overall business.

WOW! Lots of great information in this first training video explaining clear cut ways to excel and succeed within WA. It’s refreshing to actually have found a legitimate program with thousands of others applying the training and their knowledge to successfully be independent in making a successful income. Very encouraging and motivating. I’m looking forward to learning more on how to be as successful as everyone here. Then applying the knowledge as I learn. Awesome! :)

I have heard a lot about affiliate marketing and have joined a lot of groups but I have never really understood much on how to go about it. Then I learned about Wealthy Affiliate.

I appreciated the thorough introduction. I do have one question that comes to mind, stemming from other experiences I have had, and as a result of Kyle's comment about "millions" of persons on this site.
I have "come in late" on a few ventures in my life only to find the market saturated and someone doing the same thing, selling the same goods, etc on every block, to the point where everyone I spoke with was, "I don't want to hear it! I have already been given the spiel 20 times this week!"
How can I know this is not the same type of situation?
I do not mean to sound negative, but I have learned the hard way to be cautious.

Hi, i have also heard what you say, during my life i have tried a few things. However like the pareto principle the 80-20 rule, only 20% of people will put in the effort to get what 80% of people want. I think you are right to be cautious but don't let others stop you from the success you can have if you apply what the top 20% do. i wish you all the best

Yup, there's lots of competition out there. But, only a handful are aware of what is taught here at WA. You are one of the lucky few that are able to overcome the masses with the benefit of the training here.
Reply
Hello Mr. D
I can indeed well imagine the type of warm leads, the not so warm leads , even cold calling that you have had experience with.
Is this the same within this site?

I don't believe it matters. Although I have not completed the training with WA, and although I can only assume several factors of the training, they will only be based on my own experiences, several of which will be correct, especially in terms of marketing several of which I am looking forward to as being completely New..and learning for my benefit
BUT... That's not your question, your question has nothing to do with this training, but yet it has all to do with how you obtain,develop and eventually close leads.
There is no such thing as a saturated market, but there most definitely is a saturated list of names , with email addresses, some form of contact name or number that may or may be a thousand years old...there are different names for these lists, called "Dumps". as we (me) refereed to them
You said so yourself, in reverse, imagine your name been given to a list of people who are thinking your name is unique, simple, your reaction to the same spiel, 20 times a week..
I would doubt very much that WA would ,could or even wish to provide a Dump list to you, but I could imagine, as I Understand it , they may be able to provide a means by which you could better understand, manage or even manipulate such as the development of a list (?),marketing, referral, influence etc. etc. one that would benefit your business. This I could imagine.

Hi Dan

Your question is totally legitimate.

The short answer there is no such thing as saturated marketing online. There are some that are competitive, but none that are too saturated. Keep in mind that the are over 4 billion people with internet access.

The training here will teach you how to make a full time income online in nearly any interest you like.

Think of it this way...

I know you said you like to work on computers. How many times have you run into some one that also likes computers? Probably quite often.

Now how many times have you run into someone whose full time job was blogging online?

Probably extremely rare. But you don't hear people saying the computer industry is saturated, right?

Why not because there is always a company that needs IT help.

Same with online marketing through blogging. It's is not too saturated and the skills you learn here will teach you to make a ton of money.

Hope that makes sense for you!

There are 4 BILLION people online. There are over 550 MILLION products you can promote as an affiliate. There are literally millions of niches that you can head into and create success within, and there is room for 10,000's of people in every niche.

Online spending is only continuing, the number of people on the internet is growing, and the opportunity has never been better to build a business online in my 16 years online. :)

HI all,
Even though my ability to ask questions without upgrading, ends in 6 days, I am taking advantage of what I can do right now.
From the offset I notice that this community seems to be more about helping each other, supporting our goals and (well goals can also be defined as wants, needs and desires...) each other.
The welcome I received from members from all over, was very much appreciated.
I recently attended another "evening" seminar, explaining the benefits of working within the online affiliate marketing business and in particular that "Co's" marketing play
I am old enough to remember the old school " Direct Marketing" spiel... especially the rich vs poor people, the smart vs. dumb people, Which one are you ? How many people in the room want to
earn a *hit load of money? well in that case, sign up with us, because you are smart? correct ? pay a *hit load of money and we'll train you, so that you may earn what "these" people have earned, look at this video...see all the referrals you can use as well.
I maybe new to this site, which I am getting to like on a daily basis, but I am certainly not new to a business life, I have seen a tonne of it all.
So, here I am listening to Kyle, a young guy, doing well with his business and I am listening to a language that I can understand, I might not be certain ,but am I hearing a Canadian accent, having been raised there myself, in Calgary. Although I am at the beginning of a journey, I am hearing throughout, of a level of support, but yet backed up with proper business language, that is instilling in me, currently a sense of trust... trust that I may indeed be able to work with this community, to not only aspire to my own goals but with the help from here, to actually realise them.
Currently I am at the startup membership, and will continue to be so, until I fulfill all the aspects that this level gives me, as Kyle has just mentioned , it allows me to see the thoroughness in how helpful my own effort can be, made and seen. I must say I love the Non sales - sales language technique..
it really is better and really does help. Sorry about the book, I will keep it shorter next time, :-)

Thank you for all of the information given in the video. I am talking with my wife about upgrading now. Only time will tell what I will learn here.

At your own pace, whatever makes the most sense to you and your situation. I know you won't regret going Premium if you do decide to do so.

Working from home is an absolutely viability with an online business, in fact it comes hand in hand. I have been working from home now for the last 16 years (full time) and I wouldn't trade it for the world!

I just wanted you to know that I started here not knowing the first thing about building a website or having my own online business, but I have learned so much. I had no idea I could do the things I have been taught here, and I love the way we are taught here.
If we don't understand something, we have the best community who loves to assist us.
I am certain that you will find WA to be very beneficial.
Like Kyle said, you don't have to rush and there is no "pushing you" into it.
When you are able to make that commitment you will be very happy with what you will then have access to.

So am I able to make any money with the starter membership or do I have to pay another 19.00 to make any money.
the reason I ask is because I have spent quit a bit of money on things like this and never earned a dime
please help me decide to stay or get my money back
Reply
LeeMcQuay Premium
I can relate with you completely. I can also assure you that Wealthy Affiliate is not like ther others.
You are able to make money as a starter (free) member. But if you are asking if you should stay or
"Get my money back" I am assuming you have already sen went premium. If not theis no money to get back.
As for making money, as a free member it is totally possible. But you would need to already have the experience and know how to get your business up and running. You won't be able to utilize chat or messaging, if you run into a problem.
I have been here 4 month's and knew nothing about building a website. I went premium my first week.
Here is a link wherein share my progress rather than typing it all. Some of us have be taken by other programs who took our money and ran basically. But that isn't this one.
You will get everything you need to help you succeed. All you will have to do is put in your time and quality content on your site.
I can go on forever about how wonderful this program is, but I think you will see once you click on the link I provided for you. It is just part of my success. If you check out other members, you will see there are a lot of success stories here.

Let me tell ya Kyle, what I have to say isn't even worth a smile. I know little about affiliate marketing & it'll be awhile before I can afford that extra mile. I listened to every word you had to say, but my intelligence is small; and very quickly your say so left my brain. I don't have $20.

Don't doubt yourself and even without any money, keep working through the training and take action on that. Even as a Starter member you can build websites and you get a great deal of training and support here, obviously Premium is next level in terms of what you get, but do what makes the most sense to your situation.

By lesson 4 alone you are going to have your very own niche website up and running!

Name is Mr. Floyd, was going to join artist and writers but very glad I did not, that's why im here. Like some say, if it looks like a duck but does not quack like one, than something wrong. It looks like I'm in the right place here. Not smart like a lot of you guys here, but do my best. Been a mechanic/ manager and commercial artist for many years and now ready for a new beginning and new friends. Question, is it hard to finish and to get the WA certificate, and in what way will it help me in the future to make good money to not only help myself but my family too. NEW to this so hope my questions are not being to forward. Sorry one more thing. What's the cost for Upgrade to Premium and what will it do that other things here do not? Thank you

I call myself a Junior here at WA. I have been here for almost 3 years now. But life got in the way not to mention my over excitement. I moved to fast and never slowed down to finish my WA certification.

I have cleared out my personal stuff that was getting in my way. And I have seen so many people successful here that it inspired me to get Certified at WA instead of winging it.

My advice to new people here or older ones like me. Go through the Trainings Certification. WA works!!!! Knowledge is power!!!

I know what you mean, Rainfalls. I tend to put too much on my plate and fail to execute on the important things. Bad habit I have, but this book helped me break it: The 4 Disciplines of Execution, by Chris McChesney, Sean Covey, and Jim Huling. No, it's not an affiliate product I'm trying to sell (though, it probably should be), just a great book that helped me focus on important goals and execute my plans. I highly recommend reading it.

How efficiently will I be able to preform required tasks on my smartphone (the generation I have came out 8-12 months ago)? I don't have funds for a laptop/ desktop for a couple weeks. Would it be more beneficial to just wait to start when I purchase my new computer?

You can use your phone, it definitely isn't ideal, but you can consume the training here. Building your business will be very difficult from a phone though and if you have a local library you might want to consider taking advantage of that for the actual "building out" of your website.

I definitely use my phone for some things, but generally speaking if you want to build a business, you need access to at the very least a tablet (with a bluetooth keyboard). There are definitely tasks that you can do from your smartphone.

Hi Folks
I kinda 'left' Wealthy Affiliate for a while but I decided to return and, because of my absence, I decided to restart my Certification Course from the beginning (I was on Course 3 Lesson 1).
There is a question I'd like to ask though.
When you do a 'search' in the search bar are the results ranked in any way - like date or relevance?
Reply

Anything you have bookmarked will appear at the top, everything else is according to keyword relevance I believe

except for the ones you have bookmarked that are related to the keyword you typed in search, this was stated very recently by Carson

DValentine Premium
Thanks Forrest - OK, so if I were to enter 'build a mailing list' into the search bar - the results would come back ranked under keyword relevance (unless bookmarked by me).

I have to admit, I think that's limiting - sorting the results by date published would be more helpful (in my opinion) due to the machinations of the internet seemingly changing every 45 seconds or so.

But.. they're not so no need to cry over milk that isn't spilt. Thank you again for your answer.

That is one of the things I dislike about the search feature is that it doesn't list the post dates in the search result.

I have been very interested in this business space for a while now. Unfortunately it seems that most of the information out there is only trying to sell subscriptions rather than truly provide good information and resources. I find it ironic that it sometimes feels like most of the money in affiliate marketing is in marketing the affiliate marketing. I appreciate the platform and community that you have built and I look forward to exploring it more. Thank you.

That is because most companies are pretending to be affiliate marketing, when actually they are not.

Hi there,

I am very new to Wealthy Affiliate and am not even sure what exactly I would be building a website and business around, and so my question is are there people like that on here who are not really certain about what they would want to share yet still continue to learn and make progress in this and through the process they figure it out. Also, if you have a website with another company as a network marketer, is it possible to connect the site I create with the site that I already have or does that depend on the company I work for? Thank you and God bless you!

Hi. Just watched the introductory video and I think WA shows a lot of promise for me. One question: will I be able to take a website live and start driving traffic and drawing revenue with the starter account? I wouldn't mind paying $49 per month if that's the cost of doing business, but I want to have some inbound cash flow before I start paying out.
Reply
Labman Premium
You can do this but it takes longer and you won't have the benefit of the full training to actually learn how to drive traffic to your site.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yes, you can earn money on the free membership. In saying this, generating money in the first week or month prior as a Starter is like having an your introduction course to becoming a surgeon and expecting to perform surgery within the first month.

The first month is typically your foundation building stage. In order to build a website that earns you consistent revenue, you need this foundation. After this, you are going to start seeing traffic and as you build this out, there are many different ways in which you can generate revenue.

Personally it took me into my 3rd month of busting my butt to make my first dollar online, by month 6 though I was making consistent income and by the year mark, I was almost full time.

But guess what would have happened if I quit during those first two "trying" months or had instant revenue expectations. I would not be where I am at today (going on 12 years full time!). Just wanted to put things into perspective for you.

I am in this journey with you, so is the community here at WA. If you want to jump in, work hard, take action, and persist.

You will have some awesome things accomplished by the time you finish just the first 10 lessons of the getting started training and you will be prepared to build a very successful business online within the Premium membership.

But do upgrade at your own pace and take action on the tasks. Action is what will lead you to success!

Thanks, Kyle. What you describe sounds like a legitimate business opportunity, not one of those "plug-n-play," get-rich-quick schemes that I see online all the time. I'm certainly willing to invest a year in learning a new skill. In fact, a year - even two - would be a very fast ramp-up period for just about any other type of business.

The only thing I'm not willing to do is spend a year trying to build an online business, only to find out that I've been going about it all wrong and wasting my time. Now that I'm a WA member, I'm not too worried about that.

Thanks for your input.

Quite new to WA. See $19 First Month Discount at the top of the page. Does that mean that if you upgrade in the first month, you'll pay $19? or $30 (49-19)?. And secondly, are there recurrent/occasional payments (say monthly, yearly, according to services received, etc.) or is it just a one-time payment and that's all?

$19 first month T then $49 every month after unless you cancel my Friend.

As Tony mentioned, it's $19 for the first month, then it's $49 a month after that. The $49 a month is the only expense and includes everything you need to build a successful online business.

There is also a yearly option if that makes more sense that is $29 per month ($359 paid in one payment for the entire year). So this is up to you how you want to pay if you do decide to go Premium.

I just got started and have only viewed the video thus far (which by the way found was very informative... Thanx for that Kyle.

I'm sure I'll have some questions to post as I progress through the starter course. My freebie time for this platform ends soon - if all goes as I hope, I should be upgrading before that happens.

I do have a premium website with Wix and several domain names as well related to my niches. I'm sure most, if not all my questions will be answered as I go through the training, and with the help of the community - but for now, please let me know (if you have this info) if Wix supports all aspects offered by WA. I recently had some issues importing Wix pages to another program for creating an ebook. I believe it has something to do with Wix not using code as do other website creating programs.
Reply

Do know that this is not a "trial" as your Starter membership does not end. Your Premium communication is for the first 7 days, but beyond that you will still have access to the community, your websites, and training.

You can definitely use your Wix sites with your training, or as you move forward and if you go premium, you can move your sites over and host all of your domains here within our much more advanced platform (and state of the art hosting). Up to you though.

Upgrade at your own pace and what works best for your situation. I know you are going to love the training and community here at WA and of course, feel free to ask for help if you ever need anything Sammi!

The link provided as my affiliate link has a "?" mark before the code. I added it to my website but it doesn't open.

I opened it in a new window and copied the link on the actual page (no "?" mark) instead it has a "/" before the code.

I updated my site using the second one.

Q: Will that link (.../ code) still recognize me as the referring affiliate?

Well I have managed to successfully procrastinate on starting this for the first 2 months of my premium membership! Can't say that I understand that quirk of my personality...especially since I felt really excited about starting everytime I thought about it! (which was most days!) But I have now made the commitment and since I can't get back into the garden yet I shall disallow all excuses and blast may way into a quick and impactful start!

Go for it Jennifer! Once you get the mojo flowing it won't be hard to continue. It's finding the answers to what I don't understand that helps me continue. If I don't understand something it seems like all forward momentum stops, until I do! Keep on, keeping on!

Just watched the video and I gotta say that there is quite a lot going on here. And because of that I am extremely glad that I find myself among you. Very excited and looking forward to experiencing success where in the past I was met with one dead end after another.

Hello everybody. I just completed the first video and was impressed with all the available support the community has. I am currently attending school to receive a bachelors degree in Audio Production and film. I appreciate the opportunity to be able to advance in my marketing skills to implement my future endeavors with insight a direction. As i advance i look forward to networking with those who are willing to assist me on my journey. Glad to be part of the team.

That could definitely be the direction that you head within your niche, if this is something that you are passionate about.

And yeah, you have lots of help here every step of the way Charles so if you ever need a hand with anything at all just ask!

Greetings! I was a Wealthy Affiliate member probably 6 or 7 years ago... I took a hiatus from affiliate marketing and got busy with life. But now I'm back, and I'm ready to re-immerse myself in the world of affiliate marketing and making money online.

I think Wealthy Affiliate will be a great refresher for me... and the accountability and training resources will pay dividends many times over. I am excited and ready to hit the ground running... and start making some money!

I bet a lot has changed since last time you were here, we have radically evolved our services in the last year let alone the last 7.

Let's make this time a truly successful journey Hyder! I really do look forward to working with you and seeing your progress as you do dig into the training here. Great to have you back!

I am septal of anyone or company really giving out real education to help others succeed without there being a major catch. I have gone through some training in the past and once the free training is over I have only learned very little to do much with. I don't seem to be able to get starting into making a real business or a real income. I cannot give up and choose to believe there are real companies out there that truly want to help people like me, ones who have no problem working 3-4 jobs while raising kids alone, ones who struggle to make sure food is in the house and the mtg is paid at all (not to say on time though). I have big dreams, for me that is, to be able to say we have a savings account, to say that if we need some bread or even juice we can take the 15 min to get it not 2 weeks to wait until i get paid again. To NOT have callers at all times. What i'm saying is that I believe this system can work and i believe that the other training i have gone through may be able to work together to make it work, to bring in an income to put bk into becoming a premium. I have a concern that once i go through all the training that i can for free and do what is asked or told... will i really be able to create everything i need to produce an income (even small to start) to put back to become a premium member? Please understand I work hard and don't have a problem working harder at something that is true!

Well you are going to learn how to properly build a business here at WA, we teach what works and provide you with everything you need to create and grow a business online.

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. :)

Thank you Carson and Kyle! I've been searching the net for months in an attempt to find what your site offers. I've joined 2 days ago, but have had an extremely hectic 2 days. I finally started my training and found the very first video not only very informative, but also extremely enjoyable. Once again, thank you.

Hi, I'm new to this and before I get into it too deeply, I just wanted to know a ballpark of what we could expect to bring in for income each month if we follow the training and are active daily on our websites (I realize this depends on our niche and how much time we put in so nothing too specific, just an idea). I'm just nervous about getting into something where I put in money and lots of time, but it doesn't pan out. Also, is this something where you have to put out lots of money for advertising to make anything? Just a little nervous about investing unless I know it will be worth it (cover costs at minimum in the first few months?). Thanks!

I think it is worth it to keep moving forward in Wealthy Affiliate. Set some goals and work as hard as you can towards them. It totally depends on your time you put in to working on your website, but usually around the six month mark is when you start earning money. So keep on pushing through and you will reach your goals and probably even surpass them! You can do it!

You are welcome to WA. A lot of us are new here as well. Do not be nervous. You would find that this is a friendly community with everyone eager to help. Ask questions whenever you are unsure.

Thank you. I only joined this morning, but so far I'm loving it! I think I've always kind of told myself that even if I were to find something I'd never be able to do it, and then I realized that I was right, as long as I refused to try, I would never be able to do it. So when I found WA it seemed like the perfect time to go for it. This morning I had no idea what type of business to get into. Now, I have several ideas coming to me (some better than others). I look forward to learning more and getting to interact with the people of this community. Everyone seems so nice. I'm very excited and eager to see how far I can go!

I'm at the place where I need to choose a niche. I am thinking about going with sexy clothes for plus size women but am concerned that it may be difficult to write content for this. As a larger woman, I've noticed that it can be difficult to find really attractive clothes in plus sizes, so this seemed like it might be a good way to go. I love pretty clothes and shoes, and many other women do as well, I'm sure. Do you think this niche would be too difficult to write content for? Please advise.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Well if you know the niche, and you can communicate, you can write about it (writing is simply communicating with your audience, as you have done here, as you do through email, etc).

I think there is TONS of opportunity in that space.

When I go to do research on a given niche to come up with concepts for keywords (and ultimately content), I ask a few questions of my niche.

**What are some products/services that people are purchasing in your niche?
**What are some questions they are asking?
**What are some problems they are having?
**What are some "how to's" that are useful?
**What are some trending topics in your niche?

Do some research, in could be as simple as a Google search to uncover a lot of these items. I personally start off my keyword research using this technique: This will open your doors to essentially unlimited ideas and concepts, from there you can plug in these keywords into a keyword tool like the one here at WA or Jaaxy.com. Hope this helps you out here Kelly!
Reply
KShaffer Premium
I don't know what you mean by key words and I have no idea what Jaaxy is or how to use it. I've never really researched anything. I have no idea what I'm doing. And what is Google instant? I really don't know anything there is to say on the topic. Communication has alwayalways been difficult for me.
Reply
ReginaO1 Premium
Jaaxy, keyword, etc, do not bother your head about for now. You would get to meet them down the road and they would become VERY clear to you. Just concentrate on finding your niche using the guidelines suggested by Kyle. As for communication,...you are communicating just fine here. I also have these fears when I joined about 10 days ago but with the training here and the encouragement
we are all getting, that has given way. My confidence in myself is growing by the day. You will be just fine.
All the best.

KShaffer Premium
Thanks so much for the encouragement! I did it! I built my first-ever website! Ladies Sexy Plus Size Fashion! I have no idea what to do with it at this point, but I'm sure that with all the help and encouragement here at WA I'll figure it out. All I'm sure of is that I can't give up. I'm closer than I've ever been to making a real, positive change in my life. I have to see it through. I'm hoping to upgrade to premium in the next couple of days. I want to give this venture the greatest possible chance for success. Thank you again for your encouragement, and best of luck to you as well!

I have an important question since it's out of the ordinary. I just joined and I know about WA for years now. Currently I have access only to android device so I'm wondering can I do both the WA training and the wordpress websites all from mobile? If so, I would be able to upgrade immediately but only if you know for certain that I won't have any problems such as poor user experience or things like that. I really don't have time and monet to waste. I know there's apps fot wordpress but I would have to be sure it works properly, plus is there a WA app cause I couldn't see anything on this greeting video? have

Marko,

You are not the first to ask this question my Friend.

It would be doable but not as easy on an android device as it would be on a laptop, tablet, iPad or desktop.

That being said, where there is a will there is a way and right now is the best time to upgrade to becoming a Premium WA Member as long as you are able to afford the $49 per month cost associated with learning.

Let me know that the above answer helps to answer your question Marko and I look forward to seeing you Persevere my Friend.

I'm only using a mobile at the moment as my laptop
died! I'm still only on the 2nd course but so far I've
not had a problem with doing any of it on Android
so far.

I reckon it would maybe be faster using a laptop
for typing articles etc. On the plus side you
can work anywhere without lugging a laptop
about!

The other bonus is you can just pull phone
out and start work 2 secs later. I find I'll do
stuff on here with my mobile while I'm on a
break at work but I wouldn't bother to start
my laptop for 10 minute work.

Hey guys, just finished watching the video and 4 questions popped into my head. Hope someone knows the answers to at least some of them :)

1. If I get a www. example. rubix. com site, does that mean you can get the www. example. com site at a later stage without worrying that it has been taken by someone else?
2. What if you have a product or business idea you already want to launch, is this a suitable platform?
3. Does the $49 per month cover the $18.95 per website per year or is this an additional cost?
4. The 25 free sites, how does that work cost wise (please refer to question 3)?

Thanks so much and looking forward to hearing from you all :)

Yeah My first question ever in WA... I'm curious as to if you can actually earn commission while going through your 7-day free trial? and then also if I don't decide to upgrade at all and I wanted to remain a regular WA Affiliate would I still be receiving commissions? I'm not by any means planning on not upgrading at some point but i thought id ask since i think i can start bringing traffic to my site as soon as i launch.
Reply

Starter members earn 1/2 of the commission that Premium members earn.
Reply
JLennon Premium
Hi Jacob, Welcome to Wealthy Affiliates.
You can earn commissions as a starter member (not yet Premium). If you are referring people to Wealthy Affiliates, you get about one half the commission a Premium Member would.
You can read about that here: Being a starter member does not affect any commission you would earn referring to organizations outside of WA, eg. Amazon, or ClickBank.

Hope this helps.

Hi Jacob, while you can earn commissions without a premium membership, it will take a while regardless of your membership level, this is an online business, you need to build it, it takes time and lots of hard work, it personally took me 6 months to earn my first sale (just so you get an idea) but since then I've been making money consistently, to succeed at this you need to have the right mentality for it, here's an article that talks about how long it takes to earn money here

I just finished watching this first video. I already have a site up and running and would simply love to apply the lessons here at WA to add affiliate marketing on my blog.

I know that you can link your URL to this site if you have a premium membership, but I don't want to redesign my entire site just to work in conjunction with this website.

Not sure how to approach this, but maybe that'll be answered in future lessons
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, do that then. You can use your existing site, you are just going to be missing out on some WA only features here (we have many within our website platform).

So down the road you may want to consider using the platform here for new sites, but by all means use your existing site (and technology) with the training here.

Hi! Chargrove1 and all other members,
I just joined myself and I have those same fears. But, unlike you I know my niche. The problem w/me is I have too many talents and niches. However, I do know that finding a niche has a lot to do w/something you have worked at for some time or a talent that you would really like to put to use. Start there by writing those things down and/or ask the people who think they know you well what they think you are good at, and go from there. I hope this helps. And good luck on your journey..
Reply
Kyle Premium
You are in the same situation as many. Lots of ideas, and not knowing where to start. You simply need to choose one and I would recommend that you choose the one that you are the most interested in and passionate about.

Focus on just ONE website and create success with that before diversifying and creating multiple niche websites.

It only takes ONE website in one niche to be very successful online. I usually find that folks that try to do too much at once (focus on several niche websites) end up in a state of mediocrity because it can be overwhelming and you don't really ever become the expert in just one niche.

It is the experts (specialists) that create long term, successful businesses in any niche.

Thanks Kyle for your insight. It has taken me three days to catch into this stuff!!! Hehehe, the thrill of business!

So, I took your advice, however, I am unable to change the siterubix email address associated with what I have decided to blog about. How can I go about this? It may have been answered already and if so, please disregard.

After much contemplation, it just made sense for me to reformat my website (blog) ideology.

Looking forward to your response.

I'm new to this and have very little computer knowledge. I'm nervous and excited at what may come of this but willing to try my hardest to learn. The part I'm most nervous about is finding a niche. I honestly do not know what my talents are or what I'm interested in. Is there a way for people like me to figure out what would be good website ideas or niches? How long does it usually take a person to get up and running and start making money?

I am brand new to WA and could not be more excited about anything i have tried thus far. The only concern i have is i am unemployed and have no means of income so upgrading is out of the question for me until imake money here. I already see the potential and know it is possible and am going to upgrade as soon as i am able to.... I just hope I am able to get all the information I need to make some money during the free trial that way I can upgrade. I have a little bit of knowledge about what this whole program is all about. I'm going to introduce wa to my dad who is upside down in his Endeavour and another company just like this one called digital altitude. I know he will like this platform and this and this program so much better being that it teaches not only how to Market and sell the marketing that is platform teaches but also anything else that you wish to Market and promote and sell. Does anyone have anything that they could help me or steer me in the right direction with being that I have no money to upgrade until I make sales is it at all possible? If not no biggie I can cut ties now. Thanks for the.
