About ViralTNTeam
Joined October 2016
I'm no newbie.

But...

I haven't seen the success I am seeking with affiliate marketing. Most of my success online so far has been with local marketing. While it has paid very well for me, dealing with clients can be a pain.

What do you mean I'm not ranking within the first day?

Whereas dealing with a community of like minded people (aka Affiliate Marketers) is an entirely different story.

Why?

In this world I never really have to talk with the customer if I don't want to. Sweet!!!

Problem.

I've not found success to the level I seek... yet.

I have however found a lot of courses that promise the moon and deliver cheese. That's why I didn't even give my real name when I joined this community.

However, I quickly saw the difference and now... I'M IN!!!

In fact, I'm putting everything I know about online marketing on the back burner and coming at this as if I know absolutely nothing. Reading every word... watching every video... and actually doing the associated work.

I want to learn affiliate marketing the right way. I have a feeling I've found gold here at WA and am looking forward to digging it up.

So while I maybe be a newbie here at WA, I'm certainly well versed in the world of online marketing. Let's connect as what I have shared above is only a snap shot of who I am.

It doesn't tell you about how online marketing funded a 7 week bike trip nor does it reveal why I had to return to corporate America because of my online marketing.

I look forward to getting to know you more.

ViralTN,

I'm so glad you are with WA. It is always good to hear how trusting within our community produces valuable feedback for others to learn from.

Bike riding is fun also, and I am happy that you are able to get around on yours while still having time to earn chunk change.

Good luck and much success.

Hello Calvin - Thanks for the honor. I am indeed a seasoned online marketer... just breaking big time into affiliate marketing now. Most of my activity takes place on my blog which is available at - http://startyourownaffiliatemarketingbusiness.com

That was launched just over 30 days ago and still has a lot of room to grow. I'm learning too, as are we all.

Feel free to send me related questions and I look forward to helping where and when I can.

Dear Guy...

Your words resonate deeply with me!

I couldn't figure out, after 1 year of searching & sleuthing & puzzling, I earned " nary a penny".

I joined WA in Jan 2016....I gave myself " 1 Year to earn $1"!!!

I figured if I couldn't achieve that goal after being a successful Family Doctor x30 years and a Competitive figure Skater for Canada & a member of a Rock n Roll Band & a Jazz band during my 55 years ...then I would not renew my WA MEMBERSHIP and walk away from the Passive Income on the Internet dream!!!

I'd just go live in a remote island hut and live on coconuts!!! lOLOL,

Anywhoo, after much detective work here at WA, I figured something out and on Nov 6/16 I earned $100.00 USD IN 24 HOURS,! Even finally got 3 free sign ups here at WA!!!

If you are interested and wish to copy my approach, Private Message me or reply and like this comment here and I would be happy to set you on the money trail!!!

Hello Guy. I'm was almost positive we were following each other.
However it seems not so welcome to wealthy affiliate.
Since you joined last month you will have come to realise that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
Saying that if you get stuck then can I suggest you browse some of the 200+ blogs I have published within WA.
Thank you for the follow and I will follow you as well.
Remember, you get stuck you ask ok.
Enjoy your day.

Guy, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Guy.

Hello Kyle

Thanks for your email.

I would certainly like to be at that conference but I am not sure that it is realistic for me this year. Next year, without a doubt if everything continues the way that it is going.

I know you know this but in the bootcamp I'm waiting for the 3rd training course to be released to me and in the getting started I'm about to get into certification track 4. One of the reasons I'm crushing it so fast is because I do come equipped with a developer and virtual assistant. They pick up the slack where I don't want to invest my time and or energy.

I saw this email during the time that I'm writing my post which will drive people to my review of WA - I Love Wealthy Affiliate: 5 More Reasons Why. Currently it has a word count of 1576 and I'm not done.

My rank here is now 698 and I want to become an Ambassador so I can help other people. However, right now I'm targeting releasing a new post every day for the first 30 days for my site that I am building from what I am learning on WA. So, I've decided not to pursue that direction for the moment but I will soon.

Here is my site:
http://startyourownaffiliatemarketingbusiness.com/

I would appreciate any thoughts you may have in that regard and thank you in advance for creating such an amazing resource as WA. I have seriously tried others and not found what I have found here.

Yeah, absolutely focus on your business first and foremost before you are too active here. Your website is always priority and I think that you have done a really nice job with your site thus far.

I do have a few suggestions:

(1) Use headlines, H3 tags ideally.

Ex. Reason #1: It’s So Empire Avenue

Within your 5 reasons page, that headline is too small and you want these to stand out. Highlight the text of these and make them H3 tags.

(2) Remove the SiteRubix widget from your sidebar. It actually doesn't fit properly in there and if you are going to add anything in there, you could add a sub menu (within different stuff than your top menu) or you could add a WA banner that fits a little cleaner there.

(3) Target keywords within every page or post.

Each page or post on your website should have a keyword focal point. Keywords are what lead to rankings and what lead to traffic. So when you are looking to come up with an idea for a new post, do some keyword research and find a phrase that is related to your niche.

As you build out your content and start getting rankings under these terms, you will see your traffic (and revenue) cumulatively grow. Just know that not every page will rank, but over time a good percentage will. The game of numbers!

Overall, I love the theme of your website and your content is excellent. Keep getting comments and engagement on your site and as you do move forward, you are going to really start to gain some traction in search, this usually starts around the one month mark and the true breakthrough takes place around the 3 month mark.

Hello Kyle - thanks for your response.

1. RE H3 tags - those are H3's. I will have my dev guy adjust it so they are more pronounced.

2. SiteRubix - I'm avoiding the typical ad based on what you said in training plus my view on banner blindness. Further, my audience is people wanting to learn affiliate marketing. I think a better approach would be to have my dev guy fix the width of the right column. Thoughts?

3. Keywords - I'm very versed in this area and could optimize the heck out of the post but based on your training I'm using it in the title and once on page. I am also adding an image with the keyword phrase in file name and alt tag. Is this enough SEO as to not look to much like SEO but still get the job done?

Thanks in advance for your continued help.

I just posted this in chat and thought you would want to know about it...

I just installed Google Analytics on Friday - This is a brand new site that I'm building - It is in the make money niche - The site is not 2 weeks old yet. On Friday I had 50 sessions per Google Analytics. This has never happened to me before and so quickly. If your wondering if WA works, it does. That's WA.

Hello Kyle - please look at the message just above the traffic item listed above. There were some significant questions that I had for you in that one.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Sorry Guy, I missed those. Here are my responses to those questions:

1. RE H3 tags - those are H3's. I will have my dev guy adjust it so they are more pronounced.

Perfect.

2. SiteRubix - I'm avoiding the typical ad based on what you said in training plus my view on banner blindness. Further, my audience is people wanting to learn affiliate marketing. I think a better approach would be to have my dev guy fix the width of the right column. Thoughts?

The thing about having a static module like that is that it might not be relevant based on the given pages/posts that someone is focused on. You might want to integrate promotions and widgets like this directly into relevant content, for example, if you were talking about the best website builders online it would be natural to flow into this.

3. Keywords - I'm very versed in this area and could optimize the heck out of the post but based on your training I'm using it in the title and once on page. I am also adding an image with the keyword phrase in file name and alt tag. Is this enough SEO as to not look to much like SEO but still get the job done?

You can absolutely use it more than once an likely will, but don't put too much focus on a keyword outside of the title and the first couple of paragraphs. Write naturally and if you are discussing a certain topic it is natural that you will rank under many more keywords outside of just that one.

Hey - I've completed certification track 3 but my badge still says 3. I want my 4 badge... lol. Badges are addictive for me. Also, I'm wondering if there are other badges that I don't see of which I can earn. It would be cool to have a badge library. I know... I'm all about badges here, but hey... earning the badges means we are being productive. Unlike with Empire Avenue where it just meant you wasted another 30 minutes or more.

Kyle Premium
Awesome, nice work Guy! You are doing great. There is currently one row of badges and you can see which ones you don't have as they will be greyed out on your profile:

There are going to be more badges added in the future and I am really happy to hear you are enjoying this platform. :)

Sure appreciate your encouragement. He and I have been having some great conversations. However, I did not realize that Nathaniel is considered my "sponsor". Is that because I signed up under him? That's cool. I thought referral meant.... referral only... but here at WA you just taught me that it means a great deal more than that. Thanks again.

Yup with a lot of folks here you might be considered just a referral but Nathaniell is old school and is open access to any of his referrals. He truly handles things as if he's a sponsor! He rocks!

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

I'm familiar with niche concepts.

However, I'm wondering if my niche is to broad.

Natural Acne Solutions

Should I be more targeted than that? My site is ThePimplePopper dot com and I believe it is setup nicely for conversions. My problem with that project has been traffic.

Thoughts?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Natural acne solutions is definitely a niche that can work, and your site looks good. I like the charts on the home page.

In my opinion, traffic is going to come from content. Pages like this: http://thepimplepopper.com/how-to-get-rid-of-back-acne/ are good, but are not "fantastic". With so many people writing on the subject, you need to go all out and make a fantastic page with 1000 words of content, images, videos, and resources.

How often are you writing content? How many posts/pages do you have? Those can both affect volume of traffic coming to your site.

ViralTNTeam Premium
Thanks for your feedback.

This project has been like a water facet. Sometimes it is on and well, some times it isn't. I fully realize that consistency is the key but life is the challenge.

Question: Do you see any reason why if I was consistent with blogging this site would not be able to have top rankings?

Also...

Can we add external sites to the SiteRubix in-order to get health checks on them?

Since this site is already built, what I would really like is to start a revenue stream here first and then move into other projects accordingly.
Reply
nathaniell Premium
With consistent blogging, the two issues you would face would be quality and uniqueness of content. I think you really need to make your site unique in some way, and provide better info on the subjects because something like back acne has been talked about so much. Not to say you can't rank, but you really have to go above and beyond with this topic.

Having general articles based on high volume keywords won't suffice IMO.

I would also look for much lower competition phrases. Something like "does wintergreen oil help to cure acne" or "how to make your own tea tree oil for acne scar removal". Stuff like that. Phrases like "how to get rid of back acne" is going to be very hard to rank for in the beginning.
