I am totally impressed with the level of knowledge and professionalism within the WA community. I learned long ago that there is no such thing as get-rich-quick, and I understand that this will require a lot of hard work. However, I am also smart enough to recognize the potential and value in such an enterprise, and I can't wait to start building something truly meaningful.

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.

Great to have you here as part of the family at WA, I know you are going to love your experience moving forward.

Hi, I'm completely new to this, and just want to know how much time needs to be invested in this? I can only give up to 5 hours a week, is that enough to be worth it? I kinda don't want to start if I can't follow through, but if that is enough time to make it worthwhile, I'll definitely set up properly.
Thanks,
Andrew

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

You are very welcome - just remember to ask lots and lots of questions. There is also a webinare on a Friday night (canadian time) run by our official trainer in Jay Neill (rank 3) and the sessions last for about an hour and there is usually about 300 on that webinar and there are questions and answer all through the webinar from the community and Jay himself answers questions at the end. You can check out all his blogs and training programs if you just click on rank on the top right hand corner of the screen under profile and you can get an idea of what he teaches. We will have your back so don't be afraid to ask questions.

Brand new here. I am liking what I see so far. A lot of excitement about the "pay it forward" mentality. I have tried several online programs over the years, they all have been get rich stuff for someone at the top of the pyramid. This looks, and feels different so far. lol do I sound skeptical?

You aren’t the only one. Although after being here for a short while you will learn that it is the real deal. I’m still new, still learning, still building my website. Not yet making money but still believe in WA! I have learned so much since starting. The training is amazing. Step by step on how to build your own online business. Read other members success blogs, they’re inspiring and motivating and prove that it CAN be done!

Hello George and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Believe it or not, many of us were skeptical when we first joined.

We have been through what you have gone through my friend.
I have to say that your feeling is right. Wealthy Affiliate isn't like all the others.

It is completely legit and has no pyramid. Thank goodness.
I absolutely love it here.

The training and tools are top notch and you have REAL support when you need it.
This is the best platform by far.

I am sure you are going to really like it here : )

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! I'm in the process of building my website for niche online travel business and I'm using an external website builder platform through 1and1 internet, where my domain is hosted and registered. Would I still be able to use other website tools WA offers once site is complete? Looking forward to learning more and connecting with the community!

IntroVent Premium
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.

1- pay for unlimited customer service (shouldnt this at least be free. The one thing we are all going to need especially new members to the site is help and couching, yet you get 7 days ?
2- im a little confused as i cant seem to play any of the videos ( suggested help here, im no wizz at computing.)

I can't help you with the videos. With the help area Loes has some comments on this in her training. I take it you are in your 7 day free trial. During this period some items are given freely to you for trialing. After that you can continue as a free member but these items are no longer available. If you upgrade then you have access to so much more.

im thinking it has something to do with my software, usually a codex or plug in or something, usually its div x, well it was before im not sure about now. see i dont use windows 10 , do you think that could be it?

how do i get to the help comments? Loes ? a member i assume?

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.

Well !! - staggering !! - I recently joined WA and have just watched the Walk Through video - superb, excellent, scintillating - and any other complementary word you can think of.
I think that at last - after some time dabbling around online I have found somewhere and someone who is going to provide the 'real' answers about setting up a business online.
I look forward to progressing further with this programme and I will be upgrading to premium over the next couple of days or so. Thank you Kyle - great introduction

Thank you for the introduction,

The question I have is related to building the website,
After the site build, is it going to belong to WA or it's going to be mine, if is the property of WA, can I purchase it ?
My other question is related to the live chat, after time is up, and there is no more live support, will I be able to ask question to the members?

Thanks for your time
Cheers

If your site is a SiteRubix it belongs to WA.
If you have your own Domain then it belongs to you.
After the 7 day trial is over you will lose access to certain functions within WA and Live Chat and sending PMs are two of them.

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

You won't be charged extra for those features. You can earn them by reciprocating with your own feedback and comments on others sites.

Just finished watching the TASK 1: WATCH THE WALK THROUGH VIDEO BELOW.

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.

Hello Timothy.
You are correct. That is one thing I love about being a member here.
I know what I am paying for and no surprises ( extra charges) waiting on me around the corner..

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.

We are normal, down to earth people. So I am really glad that translates into my videos. I don't view us as being better than anyone, we are all on an even playing field and there is room for all of us to be independently very successful within the vast landscape.

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.

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.
Reply
possumlane Premium
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.
Reply
Zappades Premium
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.

Hey, Ted! There are a lot of free resources here, so check them out when you can. Training, websites, etc. have free options, and to help find them, you can always search for them in the search bar or ask the WA community.

Congrats on becoming a member. Also, for later reference, you do not need a credit card. I don't have one either, and there are many options available for paid resources and membership here.

Take things at your own pace, and don't be afraid to ask questions or comment on things here at WA. The value for both free and Premium memberships here is absolutely baffling and very, very useful. Again, welcome, and here's to your success!

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,

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.

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

You should never need to start over. 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.

My first WA video was very informative and overwhelming at the same time given the overview of whats in my back-office.But after so many businesses in a box I am determined to learn how to work this for my future. Since I only have 4 day to ask questions because I have to wait until Friday to upgrade, can I add a domain or domains that I already have to build this business or I can only use whats here? Because I have purchased many domains that I've been paying for that aren't making me any income.

Yes, you can use domains you already own. I've done it both ways... used a domain I already had and purchased one their their system. Both went smoothly by following the instructions. I am now getting ready to actually MIGRATE two sites we are already hosting over to WA and eliminating those "double" hosting costs. Remember... for $49 a month you can host up to 25 urls. That's a lot.

There are many of us who were skeptical when we first joined.
Use your free days to get a feel on everyone here and try the training.
I am willing to bet, you will be more at ease with its.

This is an amazing opportunity for this who are serious about having their own online business.
You will have easy to follow training as well as the tools you will need. The community here is the best you will ever find.
When you have a question someone here always has an answer..
You are not on your own nor left hanging when you need help.
You will soon see just how awesome it is here. Oh and if you go premium, the only other purchase you might want to make down the road, is to buy your own domain they range from $12 to $14 a year. It isn't mandatory, but the free domain is a sub domain which means you don't own it.

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!

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, :-)

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

Start with the green get started here button. Many of your questions will be answered. As for is it easy to get your WA certificate, for some people it is for others it is more difficult.
You will learn to do affiliate marketing. companies will pay you commissions to help them sell their products.

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?

I do WA tasks on my smartphone sometimes. With talk to text - it may even be easier to write from your phone. I would not wait. You can learn and start without a 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

The only rankings are most popular.

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

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?

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!

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!

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.

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 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 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

So glad you are enjoying your experience thus far, and you can expect more of the same as you continued to immerse yourself within the community. Jay is an awesome dude, I have come to know him over the years here at WA as well.

If you ever need a hand with anything at all Peter, let me know. :)

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 :)

I've watched the 1st video for Task one and completed Task 2. I watched the video on the very first page and did not go to Get Started Here because it was written to take the 1st Task on that page. Not really wanting to sit through the same video again, but I am. What did I do wrong?

I just watched the WA walkthrough video. I'm impressed of how huge this community is, which makes me feel motivated to start my own online business with the help of experts. I just have two questions to ask:

1) Is it true that you can earn money working on any topic you're passionate about?
2) How many websites can you create with your starter or premium accounts?
Reply
Labman Premium
1.Yes you can
2. 2 Free SiteRubix sites with the Starter membership. 25 of your own Domains (you buy the URL) and 25 Free SiteRubix sites with the Premium membership.

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
Labman Premium
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.

I watched a 2 hr video about AWOL 101 and felt really skeptical about it. They wanted a $99 up front for there services and training. I don't have it to spend but was lead to your site by reviews. Your site is free to use and the $19 for the first month is affordable. So thank the good Lord, and I'm willing to venture out into the waters and learning how to swim so to speak. Will keep on the coarse when I get back this weekend as I have a pregnant daughter who is moving and we have to go help here and the babies. I just completed the video and will get back to training in a day or so.

Hi Kyle.

Just waded through the introductory videos and I have to say you guys have things well put together. After reading some of the comments I realize that others here have been just like me, overwhelmed by unclear information doled out on other sites that is difficult to follow because website set up and optimization isn't made entirely clear. I have been enjoying Jay's webinars because he makes putting things together more easily understood. Think I'm going to learn a lot more here. :) Thank you for your expertise.

Hi, I just stumbled over this website and I think its a gem. I have a question, I am into design and advertising however I also produce creative greeting cards, is it recommended that I should probably keep both business separate (in terms of a separate website as well)? I ask because I feel one is more corporate and the other more cute and fun and I am having trouble determining who my audience is.
Reply
JGuhlke Premium
Hi Estherleslie, It all depends on what you think will benefit you most. It could work for you to combine your business and take your greeting cards business online with Wealthy Affiliates. In WA, you will be creating a niche website, and your niche could be greeting cards.
I personally think it could be just the boost your greeting card business needs, especially if you wanted to open your audience up to whoever might be interested in buying greeting cards 'Worldwide'.
All the best to you

Hey, thanks so much for the feedback. I just love both so much am having a hard time choosing between the 2 to know which to focus as my niche. But at the moment I have been brain storming ideas to combine the 2 effectively.

I have had the pleasure to work with some amazing companies in the graphic design sphere such as The Oprah Magazine and ESI Design and I live and breathe design, so its that same flare and enthusiasm I bring towards my greeting cards. I just need to find the perfect mesh of both.

I definitely think the 2 websites will be a bit too much, so trying my best to combine them.

All the best with your business also.

Hello folks
I got as far as lesson 4 in course 2 and realized that I had missed something along the way.
Having come to WA from elsewhere on the 'Net where I learned a lot but not, it seems, well attached to each other.
I have found that, if you don't skip steps, WA hangs all the training together so well; I see no reason at all, apart from a lack of will and determination on my side, why I shouldn't make a bucket load of money here...
AS LONG AS I FOLLOW THE TRAINING!
Kyle & Carson have been doing this a lot longer than I have so I'm willing to learn from people more knowledable than I am.
If you want to connect with me I'd be honored.
Cheers for now

The community model looks promising and great. However, I want to discuss the financial aspect of the benefits. I understand that this is discussed through Affiliate Bootcamp, but I want one thing clarified before delving deeper.

My question is: How does the affiliate model work? That is, what is the percentage given to affiliates and do affiliates get a percentage on 2nd tier and deeper of joining members?
Reply
littlemama Premium
Hi Ayman,

The financial aspect is NOT just in Affiliate Bootcamp - Affiliate Bootcamp is a course for those who wants to promote WA as a niche.

The MAIN course is the Online Entrepreneur Certification course in the GREEN button in left menu ("Get Started Here" button). Here you will learn how to build your online business in a niche you want, of your own choice. So it can center around your passion instead of doing something you don't like. It's encouraged to build your online business on a topic you are passionate about as that will drive your strength in this process.

If you go through the Course 1 which has 10 free lessons for you, you will understand more how affiliate marketing works.

Basically you will build a website recommending products to your audience. When your audience clicks on those links to the products you're recommending AND make a purchase, then you will earn a commission.

Affiliate programs and how much you can earn ranges WIDELY and we can't pin point how much you can earn with.

For WA's affiliate program, the details are here:
https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/share

You do NOT earn 2nd tier as this is NOT a MLM company or program, neither is affiliate marketing in general. You earn commission on actions that people take on your affiliate link... whatever that action may be to determine the trigger for your commission which could be a sign up, a purchase, etc.. and this all depends on the affiliate program you sign up to which you will need to read about and learn about for each affiliate program you choose to join.

I hope this helps,
Grace
