I appreciate the systematic way you navigate us through this orientation program. I have one question about anticipated fees and overall cost of this program. Where can I expect and what are the additional fees in addition to Premium membership. For example, setting up a website through Wealthy Affiliate, what is the fee for your services? What are the other fees?

Hey Darrell,

The only other fees besides the monthly or yearly membership fees would be the domain registration fees.

Most domain names can be registered for as little as $15 US funds ... but ... you won't need to consider doing that until you have developed your website using the free hosting at SiteRubix (left-hand sidebar, near the top left).

Once you DO register a domain name here at WA, you get the cost of a security certificate rolled in as part of your registration ... which no other web hosting company offers yet, as far as I am aware of!

Hope this helps you.

Thank you for your comments. I am very skeptical of most online mentoring programs which seem to just want to milk you of your money with very little support on their part. I am sure you know what I am speaking of.

This is all new to me as I develop a strategy to expand my already established digital artist mentoring programs to a much larger universe. I am a retired college professor with an MBA and also a Masters of Photography. I am a nationally recognized digital artist. The draw back is that I am "old school" which means that I have very limited understanding on online marketing.

Is Wealthy Affiliate where I need to be?

Yes Darrell, I can personally recommend WA as the place for those of us who are "old school" and wanting to learn more about online marketing.

You're right, I DO know EXACTLY what you mean about being skeptical ... about ANYTHING online these days.

However, WA reminds me sooooo much of what it was like for me waaaay back when access to the internet from homes was still new.

Back in those days, many of use website designers shared what we discovered on other's websites, and we'd back engineer to discover how "they" did that (whatever was new ... like bringing text in from the monitor's edges ... or moving graphics!).

The community work together and help each other out ... and, it's all thanks to Kyle and Carson who, though young themselves, are more "old school" in their values when it comes to offering the great services they do on this awesome platform that they have worked so very hard over the years to polish into what it is today.

Triblu what is your niche market?

I am a master photographer/digital & traditional artist. For several years I have been mentoring artists around the USA and wish to expand to a larger universe. I teach digital and traditional painting via online courses and live workshops.

You could certainly head in the direction of photography or digital art with your niche.

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. :)

PS. Wonderful to have here at WA!

Hey Darrell,

I operate a website design/management business for local businesses, so, like you, I offer "free help" on creating websites from 2 different websites, another on health, and yet another on researching my paternal family name (genealogy).

Though, only three of my sites are monetized.

Kyle has offered you PERFECT advice!

Hope this helps you.

The walkthrough video is a very optimistic sign that this forum might be really a huge difference to a lot of stuff I have seen so far. For the first time, there suddenly is a community with and behind you instead of the general ego/self-dominated IM scenery outside... I am looking forward to the next steps along the training and to get in touch with more fellows here... See & read you :-)

This was a very informative introductory video. Near the end the video said something about being able to have 25 websites. Does this mean that I'm limited to having 25 websites? Also, are domain names and hosting extra fees on top of the premium membership fees or is some of this included with premium membership? Please explain?

I know that hosting is included you do need to purchase your own domain name if you choose to. You can start with a free website with the siterubix extention. For premium you do get 25 websites.

Click on the blue siterubix tab up top and you can start building your sites.

Hope this helps.

Yes it does thank you bmark. 25 sites sure is a lot but thats good to know that hosting is included when I purchase a domain name. Other services like godaddy charge for domain plus a monthly fee for hosting so I think I will be able to save a lot of money with WA site Rubik.

The Managed Wordpress hosting you have access to here at WA is matched by very few hosts in the industry in terms of quality, security, speed, and support. It definitely is not a budget host like the other shared hosting companies out there. The hosting you get here at WA is comparable to $250 per MONTH hosting packages.

You can learn more about it here:

You can host up to 25 of your own domains and 25 free .siterubix.com websites on your Premium hosting platform here at WA.

Kyle,do I actually get to make money while using the free site builder,can I attach banners and make money,and is this section of your free affiliates site only for Wealthy Affiliates advertising or can I advertise others as well on the site? Will the site qualify for affiliate programs like Cj ?

He answers a lot of these questions in the intro to bootcamp, see the black button in the left menu
1. yes can make money on the free sites
2. yes can attach banners
3. always able to advertise more than WA
4. can qualify for other programs, each one has different rules, must ask each program

they are fully functional wordpress sites, many ways to use them, most people will go on to an own domain site though as they have some advantages and people always want to optimize results

Thanks to Kyle and to the whole WA community too.
After many searches, to create my online business, it seems to me that I found a friendly community wanting to help do that. It starts to look real. In the past, I found many beautiful words and promises of a successful online business that carries "golden eggs". I hope, here can be different.
So let's get started.
