I am so excited to be here! Already enjoyed the Walkthrough video, very thorough thank you Kyle & WA team. Only part I wasn't too clear on, is the Affiliate Bootcamp only offered in the Premium level? Not that I'm ready yet of course, just want to understand so I may consider later.

You can see course 1 of the WA bootcamp as a free user I believe. Click on it and see what you can see!

@ericcantu - yes indeed, phase 1 is unlocked, thank you for the quick response! I was busy watching the other videos :).

Affiliate Bootcamp should be open. By the time you finish the course 1 of Get Started Here and course 1 of Affiliate Bootcamp
you should have a webpage up and running. Also there is a short tutorial on how to use Jaaxy, in the bottom left, to come up with a web address name. Its free as well, so if you are interested in that short tutorial let me know and I will show you how to find it. 15 min. easy reading. Good luck Mary Ann! We are following each other so you can find me if you need me :)

Awesome. Go through course 1 of each program as quickly as possible. Watch videos, complete task. With your background, easy reading. For the free days, do as many lessons as you can a day so you get a better idea whether you want to go premium or not. I'm a premium member but I don't want to sell you. The lessons will convince you :) Good luck with WA

I was pretty hesitant at first about if I should try WA... even though I am not through the first lesson I feel a lot more confident about my choice after watching this video. It seems like it will be easy as long as I am willing to put in the work and effort to be successful!

Yeah, your success in the online business world will be the byproduct of the efforts you put forth. If you can work at this, EVERYTHING else you need is here within WA from the training, the tools, the website/hosting, the mentoring, the network, etc.

Great to have you here at WA Michael!

Hi I have a question what type of websites
are you allowed to do . If u decide to continue with the wealthy affiliate program and to make the website your own. so that you can have a business of your own .... i'm asking what type of sites is allowed say if i'm a person into fashion and design what would you recommended me. because your program speaks of you are only allowed two to start . but I see nothing of someone else's choice rather their taste or decision of making money . Are your already ready websites just layouts and you have to use them or its just to give an idea of how u may want your site to actually look to the public

You should be fine with your niche. The only ones not sanctioned are Online Gambling and poker or, sites of a XXX variety. You will also have problems with a site promoting hate speech.
It doesn't sound like you will fall into any of those categories.

Hey thank u for that i just had to make sure i following the program correctly because I clearly heard them mentioned that so I had to double check to make on the right track

Sounds like good sIte by step training. I like that.

Just 2 questions;

Is Affiliate Bootcamp section only for premium members? The walk through video did not specify that.

Also I do not have any product to sell. I am a homecare worker looking to supplement my income by doing online stuff that will help bring in more revenue. Are there other people like me that are on here?

thanks!

Hi Ash, I believe Starter members have access to part of the Bootcamp course and part of the Online Entrepreneur Certification course. You do not need a product. All of the training that WA does is focused around affiliate marketing which is promoting other products/websites and getting commissions if somebody that you referred buys something. The same techniques can be applied if you have products, but it's definitely not necessary to have them.

Thank you for the warm welcome! My brother wrote this website down and told me to look it up. Then he told me to look up his website! Throughout our lives my oldest brother has always guided me on a productive path by plugging me into people and places that can further my dreams. I trust him totally so here I am. I am nervous but willing to embark on this journey with WA! Hopefully I can earn enough to not feel the pinch of the monthly premium though since I am new and here to make money first..

How many premiums on average will I pay out of pocket before my site begins to pay for itself?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Well your brother has definitely given you some good guidance by sending you here at WA. If you want to create a business in any niche and do so online, you are definitely in the right spot here at Wealthy Affiliate.

RE: your question regarding success.

Everybody earns money at a different rate, so it really depends on the person. I have actually created a discussion on this that will put things into perspective for you here: Have a read of that, I know it will give you a lot of insight into this exact topic. ;)

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. I would not be where I am at today. 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. Amazing things can and will happen!

This video has made me feel very relaxed about my decision to join WA. I've been researching a few online Marketing companies the past 3 weeks but the others I've found made me feel like I was being sold something. You have made me feel as though I am investing in an education to change my life. The price is reasonable, actually the value is incredible. I have not yet signed up for Premium but I feel this is the direction I will be taking within the next 6 days. Thank you for making this easy to follow and encouraging to say the least. I look forward to meeting many wonderful people within this community.

and just to complete my training syllabus I need to say what i think of the getting started Video, Well it was thorough and at a good pace which kind of made me feel as relaxed as the site already has,so although we are in to an intense learning and taking action scenario your site has made me feel quite relaxed about the whole affair.

I can't count the number of ways that I am thinking about how I can benefit from WA. As if that wasn't enough, when things benefit me, they benefit my family too. After my research into affiliate marketing and now seeing what is offered with the Premium Membership, that I am now a part of, the substantial benefit that I'll receive is financial. More importantly, whatever I benefit from, my family benefits from as well. I battle rheumatic diseases and have been searching for the right kind of work that I can do from home. The amount of knowledge and education is worth so much, I would never be able to afford trying to learn this kind of knowledge in a traditional classroom. Thank you WA for being here and for having reasonable prices! Kyle and Carson- you both ROCK!!!!

That is why, in the 12 years we have been in business, we have not raised the prices here at WA. There simply is not an offline education platform that is as current and as advanced as the platform here at WA...for 1/100th of the price! :)

We plan to keep it that way and it is wonderful to have you as part of the family here at WA Vanessa! :)

I thoroughly enjoyed the video. WA, so far, is intriguing to me; there are so many tools, plug-ins, and things included in the membership! And compared to other networks, Wealthy Affiliate is pretty cheap! I like the way the website is laid out, too. I think the main thing I, along with everyone else, must keep in mind to to focus on the reason we are all here - to grow and expand our knowledge base. We mustn't let WA become another sort of social media! That being said, I do feel that the amount of accessibility to find help is unfathomable and will continue to serve new affiliates, like myself, positively. Starting affiliate marketing sure can be overwhelming, but WA definitely lowers the tension and stress! Awesome!

BetterDays2C Premium
The websites, whether they be siterubix sites or sites you set up using your own domain, are all public. That means that they show up on the search engines just like anyone else's site -- that is, once they start getting traffic. WA gives you all of the information and tools to build a reputable site that you can share on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. I hope you understand this. If not, let me know and I will try to be clearer. Take Care and Good Luck! Connie

Why only 7 days? I find there needs at lest a month free as many have only an hr or so here and there to view this site, till they see if they really like this, I find more time is needed for people who don't know computers very well lol

7 days is the time limit for taking up the offer of the first month premium at $19. Your free membership is always free, it just means that when you get past the 7 days, you need to pay $49 for premium.

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.

I am praying hard that I can absorb this, get things set properly and start making money soon, cause I have gone into debt trying other programs that were just out to get your money, have to TALK to people on the phone etc, etc......... If I wanted to talk on the phone I would become a telemarketer in some one's brick and mortar establishment.
My goal is to become financially worry free. I have had some tragic events that occurred after I signed up,and am just now getting into my training. If my life will leave me alone long enough for me to get it completed I have confidence that I can make it work for me. I am glad that this actually starts you out free because with my measly SSD check and maxed on my cards, I Can't afford money on worthless programs. I like it that I get to learn and start it for free. I really need to be successful at this. And that is my MAJOR GOAL.

This industry was new to everyone at one point, myself included. Back when I started I had no knowledge of the Internet business and this. As you move forward, you will get the hang of this and things that you are overwhelmed with by now, will become second nature.

Just one question. The video mentions that if you are a Premium member then you have an unlimited access to support, and if not you get limited access, but it is not clear what "limited' means. Does 'limited' mean that you get no support at all? I would appreciate if someone could answer this, please.

That's not what it means at all! I JUST became a premium member today but I started a few days ago and I've gotten all the help I've needed when I ask. Limited, I believe means that you can access only a mild portion of the materials and tools such as courses and live training courses. No one here will limit the help they can give, if they can give it. Ask as many questions as you need to get acquainted and learn as much as you can!
Reply
chrisvelez Premium
Hi HisbelA,
When you first join WA as a free member you get 7 days of unlimited access to support. That means you can ask and answer questions, participate in the forum, send and receive PMs etc. With regards to the training, you can read member training and access the full Certification Level 1. The other levels are premium.
Once the 7-day offer expires, you can remain a free member. In this case, you still get access to Cert. Level 1 and you can see any training that is not premium. With regards to community access, you can still real everything that is posted and search for answers in the top bar. However, you loose all ability to post.(Except the posts within your profile blog). You retain the ability to receive messages but you can't PM anyone, post any questions or even thank anyone for following you. I learned this from experience.
I hope this answers your question.
Regards,
Chris

I'm thinking the most important aspect of this program is that as a beginner I'm breaking into a new business model that could change my life for the better! I'm learning the basics of affililate marketing, which is one of the best means of an online business success, in turn having an online business will fulfill my dream of self employment, ownership, fully controlling my destiny and of course the potential of indefinite wealth. I know, this sounds a bit overly dramatic, but I really see this in that manner. The video was clear and straight forward, I'm ready to move forward with this.

Is it possible to buy a domain name from WA ? Or, should I buy a domain first from a third party and redirect to WA servers? If it is possible to buy a domain name from WA do I jave the option to protect that domain by privacy and can I renew it every year please? Many thanks. Stuart.
Reply

You can buy domains here at WA directly through the SiteDomains platform. It is a very seamless system and we have implemented some very advanced features so you do not have to deal with the headache of DNS, whois privacy, security, upsells, or of managing your domains within a completely different account.

You can access the SiteDomains platform under the main SiteRubix menu, or you can get to it directly here.

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/domains

A .com domain will usually run you under $14 per year, with other top level domains varying in price. This includes absolutely everything. You can register any of your domains there and upon purchasing, they will instantly be ready to build your website on!

Thank you for your reply Kyle. Buying a domain from WA is the way forward. Kind regards Stuart.

That is certainly a lovely video, and quite informative too.

I'm just getting started on this trek, so I'm not sure how far behind the curve I will end up being. My cash flow is currently very unsteady, so I already have a question:

Once we sign up for premium, can we switch back and forth repeatedly between premium and standard as the months pass?
Reply
Kyle Premium
You cannot downgrade, but you will be able to resubscribe to your Premium account at ANY time and reconnect your membership (when you can make it back) and take off where you left off. ;)

We also host your website for 30 days beyond the cut off date, which gives you time to still work on it or move it to another host in the meantime. We also back up and keep your site for up to 6 months, so you will have access to your sites until that point in time (I can restore your site upon returning).

Hope this clarifies for you Martha!

Watched the video and got a feel for things to get going. It seems very straight forward and though I'll have plenty of questions as I move through the course my focus will be to "always" take action as Kyle said in the beginning. So speaking of which, off I go to lesson 1.

Ok just curious. So this is like making your own blog and then you get followers to sign up and do the same thing you are by making a blog and getting your followers to sign up and pay like I will and I get a cut of each purchase made? And then my followers followers will do the same as myself and my followers? Lol. Confusing I know but I'm sure y'all get my question. I'm gonna watch the 2nd video to find out more. Everything says it's legit I just don't have many, if any, friends, you know? So how will it work for me? It's hard for me to get a job so I'm really hoping I can get going really well ASAP.

The training is going to walk you through the entire process and you will have a pretty good handle of things by the time you hit lesson 3 of the initial training.

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

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

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

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

So thankful that you set the stage for seeking all help we need. Believe me I'll be there. I am excited, but this is all new to me so I feel quite intimidated by it all. If the rest of the training is as easy, we will rock this business.!

i am unable to view the video(s). I am getting an error message that states "The video could not be loaded, either because the server or network failed or because the format cannot be supported." Any suggestions on how I might get the video to work? I'm not very tech savvy :(

I recommend that you install Google Chrome as your browser. This will make your experience online that much better (and resolve any video playing issues if you are having any).

You can install it for free using the following link:

I think that it would be a great thing to add a speed changer button to these videos. I find it more comfortable and easier for me to listed to videos at 1.25 or 1.5 times speed to get the information as quick as I can but still be able to retain it. Just a suggestion.

I really enjoyed that walkthrough video and plan on watching it at least one more time because when he pointed to areas with the white mouse pointer I could not see very well what he was pointing at and I missed a few things. Do you sell your own traffic or, if not, how is the traffic purchased after a website goes live? I do plan to upgrade to the premium level before my timer runs down. Do these websites require shopping carts and, if so, are they very secure? Do we need to have a merchant account? I cannot think of anything else at the moment but as time goes on I'm sure I will have other questions. Thank you, in advance, for your attention to these matters.

Sincerely,
Priscilla S. Schmerer

Thank you Kyle For the walk through, and the great
thing about the video is I can always go back to it again ,
and again if I keep slipping up on things, and Boy I can do
a lot of that these days !!
The content Is great and of course I am not going to
remember everything the first time around but, I am grateful
that you had chosen the video to be up there for us !!
Thanks again Kyle !!

I was looking for a way to navigate the internet world which all looked so alien to me. I have been searching a long time but with WA , I can say I am now home. The video helps to demystify how to navigate and utilize this opportunity. Can't wait to go premium and get to have full access!!!!

This video shows one how to navigate the WA website and how to use the tools and resources and what general categories of activity is available here at WA. I understand it will become more clear just how much is possible here at WA as I journey through the training, exercises, tasks and social aspects of WA.

I've watched the walk through video. It is to give an over all idea about WA. It is a long session, very difficult to find out important point. I like to know I have registered my name, added an Image and short profile, now what next to be done?
Every Session/video presentation must have some bold points and specific suggestions about what to do next.

I believe this is just what I was looking for! So thankful to have found WA, I almost "bought into" a few other programs but after some research decided better. Kyle answered my biggest question right near the end... Are there going to be a ton of upsells to get me where I want to be? Loved hearing that answer was NO!

It was a nice refresher to start all over again. I am in a place where I am determined to make it work this time. I had too many things going on and was too comfortable at my full-time job last time around. This time I took advantage of the Black Friday sale to re-start my program. I will be successful this time. I feel scared saying that but also excited too!!!

I am having difficulty focusing because I still don't know exactly what it is I am supposed to be learning to do. Create a website, got that. I'm so lost at the moment, I can't even formulate a question. What's all this about blogs? Let's say my niche is cruising. Carnival in particular. Now what? I'm certainly not an expert on the subject though I am very familiar. So Carnival Cruise Lines is my niche. What do I do with that?

Just finished my "due diligence" on WA. That's how I found WA. I was researching Anik Sengil program, almost $2K and found WA's comment that it was too expensive. I haven't seen much bad about WA, except them not cancelling their billing when someone quit. (I'm sure there are at least 2 sides to that story). Other complaints seem exaggerated and were more aimed at the IM industry. So, I'll probably go for the premium upgrade soon.

I am not throwing anymore $ away. I am so sick and tired of being "lured" into "joining for free" and promised to be "given all this free help and information". Once your name and or email is in the system, your bombarded with more "check out this offer". Every thing is just a bait and switch. Apparently this is why I am not wealthy and most likely never will be...because I am 100% honest from the get go!! And when I say "I give freely" I don't then turn around and charge for the gift. I do not falsely lead a person. Think about it this way...if you want your house painted does the painter give a "starting" price then say "oh yeh, you need to pay for x item..so you do then painter says "ya know, this paintjob just won't continue if you don't implement x item...NO the painter does not!! What is so difficult about just flat out saying "these things are what's mandatory and this is the cost to get started". And another thing, drop the deceitful "quick" term. Nothing any guru is offering is ever quick. I have fallen asleep trying to get just one tiny step forward thru the "class" "course" "training"!!! Which leads me to ask, is that what your gift is? A nap from pure frustration? Do me a huge favor and excommunicate me from your existence .. Especially from the email pounding that clutters my inbox so profusely that scrolling and deleting is infinitely impossible and causes me to again fall asleep !! Call off your third party thugs too !! I have no spare money..I pay rent, utilities and fuel for getting to/from work. I have not even been able to afford groceries for over a year now. I go without eating for 3-4 days at a time, because health insurance is mandatory!! Ironic

I really don't have any questions but I do want to comment about two things I learned and appreciate on this video.
1. The topic was discussed on point.
2. The 3 wondeful, no, actually, great things I learned about WA:
a. There are only 2 types of membership - Starter & Premium
b. There is an OPEN community for help
And to top it all,
c. There are NO upsells!
So.... moving forward!

I think some good items to sale or service would be rc drones with cameras, or security cameras. Anything electronics will always be a good market.just got to keep in mind that a niche is something very specific, so we can't just do electronics. We might could try cell phone accesories , that may be narrowed down enough but not sure

Well this video was very informative...I just have a feel8ng it's going to be a LOT to take in. I am going to just pace myself and d8gest everything slowly. Good thing it's basically "learn at your own pace"...otherwise I would probably fall behind! Take care and good luck all! -Stacy

Hi Everyone,

I just joined last night! I watched the Walkthrough video and I am excited to get started. I believe that the system will work. The only thing that I am hesitant about is whether the system involves buying ads. I know spending money on marketing and ads is a part of getting noticed online but currently I do not have funds for that. So I worry that I am going to invest a lot of time in getting started only to find out that I need money in order progress. However, I'm remaining hopeful and I am excited to experience this process.
Reply
Kyle Premium
You don't have to "buy ads" to be very successful online, in fact you are more likely to fail if you focus on buying traffic to early on. There are huge risks with that and you should understand your market/audience before you ever buy ads.

The training here is going to walk you through the proper process of building a business online.

Hello, I am a brand new member. The initial walk through was very informative. I am anxious to get started with "get started here". Thank you for the chance.

Hi my name is ashley and I'm new to wealthy affiliate. I'm interested in learning more about website building, blogging, and marketing because I raise nigerian/pygmy goats, but I also recently started writing children's books about them. I only have one book published though. So through wealthy affiliate if I don't have alot of content to sell, can I still make money through this program and how? I would like to upgrade top the premium membership, but I want to make sure it's going to be feasible for me to do that right now. I'm currently out of work, so every penny counts. How long do I have premium service for the $19?

My First Question:
I've read enough before I found this to know that sales funnels are important for various situations.
Is anyone out there familiar with Clickfunnels and using that product in conjunction with their website? It's on my list. But could definitely use some thoughts from someone with more knowledge. Thanks in advance.
Reply
Kgebhardt Premium
Clickfunnels is incredible. They have outstanding tutorials to. You can create funnels easily and they look very professional. you can link your autoresponders easily and they have a split page so you can test your funnels. They do have some up-sells though, Russel B., the creator, is really awesome and he sells well. You can also start with a free trial for 30 days. Then its $97 for the lowest monthly plan, but you get a lot of tools for that. Please message me if you need help with it. I use Getresponse autoresponder and its very very easy to integrate them.

Video was very informative. I got the membership details straight. I had to break up watching the video into segments because of commitments to clients - but this gave me an opportunity to do due diligence on my behalf by checking out: SiteRubix (looking at a couple of reviews - which ended up giving me more background about WA - and reading some comparisons about WA and that other program. I KNOW I am going to love it here.

What tremendous value is built into WA! An all-in-one shop for making money online. A tremendous effort to be of assistance to newbies.

Thank you, Kyle.

Thanks for such an invaluable & priceless outlet. This is key. I'll apply my confidence & consistency with Wealthy Affiliate's thorough attention for resources. Then, I intend to evolve my future by my independent research & knowledge found only here. I feel blessed finally. Peace.

Great Video! Sounds good however, Am i able to complete the training without the Preminum membership? Does this program really work? When I am financially able to upgrade to Premium, is this a scam to take my hard earned money? Simply, I've been through alot with these online sites and have wasted alot of time and money so I have my doubts rightfully so. Is this real?

I have been looking for help for 6 years, spent some good money that I should have been using to pay off our mortgage, and lost it all to scams. So I stopped looking for help. I believe that I have a great web site: www.dogwonders.com---but almost no traffic. So, as I get older, time does 2 things: 1 - It goes by faster; 2 - It becomes more valuable.

I started looking for help again last week and carefully researching a company---most everyone said it was a scam, but somewhat hidden in the comments was someone who said. "It's a scam, but I can tell you about a wonderful, truthful, valuable site that is not a scam . . . and then he listed the details. It was Wealthy Affiliate---so here I am, excited with the discovery and ready to go!!!

The promotion of your website is in the content you write and the ranking you get from Google or other search engines. Its all about Keywords and content. I don't have much money either but i am willing to try. There are plenty of people out there who have started from nothing.

Very interesting video, I'm curious as too how far I can get before I need to upgrade to Premium, cause honestly with a tight budget, I can't afford that right now, maybe the first month because it's a discount but for the months ahead, I just don't know but I'm willing to put forth the effort.

Having watched the Lesson 1 video I now know that all of my concerns were unfounded as the WA system give me exactly what I am looking for and I am sure that I can progress at great speed towards my first goal within one month provided I can come up with a diamond keyword for my first website and campaigns. I will be upgrading very soon.

Just went thru the video. I noticed it's quite a bit long being around 30mins, it'll be wonderful if that video was broken down into subsections/chapters and perhaps show a progress percentage bar of completion like you see in udemy or any online course taken site. This will probably provide a better user experience as we can always go back to review the section (in smaller chunks) instead of playing the full video. Sorry, my technical engineering side kicked in.

Hi
I just completed lesson 1. Does anyone know details and features included in premium sites and hosting? Is an autoresponder included? I currently have 4 domains-2 sites currently under construction with wix and wondering if I should switch. I love the drag and drop blank templates they offer. So easy to build site that I want. Where can I find these details?
Thanks
Reply
TheGenXTech Premium
Great questions, Misha. Have your tried asking this question in live chat? Someone may respond to you quicker there. As it relates to switching your websites, I would err on the side of caution if you have a lot of content on these websites. In my opinion, it all boils down to hosting. My advice would be to keep your personal website (for personal branding) on the Wix platform as a portfolio site and create your niche-specific sites using Wealthy Affiliate.

I just finished watching the intro video, and so far the system seems pretty straightforward. I have to admit to feeling pretty nervous about trying WA. I've tried and failed several times to run my own business. There was never a lack of effort on my part by any means, but I always had to figure everything out on my own, too, and maybe I just didn't know key information or the right strategies. I'm really hoping that with such a huge community of entrepreneurs and a clear training program here, I'll finally be able to get it right. Owning my own business is truly the ONLY thing that I've ever wanted to do career-wise!

I watched the getting started video. A lot of info and lots of training ahead. But it seems helpful and interesting, and maybe I jumped the gun a little, but already upgraded to Premium. What's to lose, if I wind up hating it or not making any progress in a few months, I can always cancel at any time. Hopefully it goes in the opposite direction if I follow all the training and instruction and I can generate some revenue; keep learning and building, and maybe a lot of revenue!!

The truth is Pieter!...you will definitely make money with this system and guidance from everyone, but it is not that fast a turn around. You have to go through the training while you build your website to a strong presence on the internet.
