About VitaliyG
Joined September 2007
I'm a full time online marketer. Through my 12+ years in the field, I have learned many things, but the most important being at WA.

Overall, the truth in this business like any other for that matter is that you learn more from your mistakes than anything else. I've done more incorrect things than right, but it's also true it's better to try and fail than not try at all.

As you enter this business, you'll likely be overwhelmed with all the information there is. Just take a deep breath and process it all at a pace you're comfortable with and it will all make sense quicker than you think!

Online marketing can really be an amazing opportunity if you stick with it. It's opened many doors for me and I know it will for you too!

For anyone reading this profile hoping to take something from it, take this: In this business, you have to try, even if you have no idea what to do, do something and see what happens. Through that you will find a path to the ideal way to success and always remember WA is here to help!

There are alot of helpful people here at WA, but the best advice comes from the most experienced users. If you have any questions or just want to chat, feel free to message me with any questions you may have. I'll be more than happy to help you out as best as I can.

Thank you!

Money Goals
As a WA member of 5 years, I've never taken the time to do the certification course, but I would like to catch up and learn more. Having been successful at this business and now not so much, here are my answers:

QUESTION #1: How much money would you be happy earning? Somewhere between $100,000 a year (in profit) and up. Up to $10,000 a day. I know it may seem like a lot, but believe me guys it is possible! I've seen it happen before!

QUESTION #2: How much would you be ecstatic earning? The $10,000 a day. would certainly be right up there :)

QUESTION #3: And how much TIME are you willing to invest to achieve these goals? As long as it takes. I do not want to have a normal 9-5 job. I want freedom, fulfillment through helping others and making money in the process. WA gives me this opportunity!

Awesome goals Vitaliy and I am looking forward to the day where you post about your first $10,000 day. You have experienced success thus far and you know what sort of opportunity lies on the Internet, so I have full confidence in you achieve this goal!

Look forward to the journey ahead!

Hey There Vitaliy, first thanks for responding back to my question. Second, I hope from now on you don't mind me addressing you as, Hi Buddy, But also to let you know I decided to go back a couple lessons to catch back up. When I first started the free course I had the time to study, but after I sign up for premium , BAM , my mom goes and has a heart attack. She holding up now. I had to go down to Lauderdale for almost 5 days, over an hour away from my place and really no time or focus to study. I can see there is potential for this course, but it's giving the time to learn it a chance to retain itself in the old nogging, I lost it for awhile. But as in everything in this life , just another bump to get over. Next time I hope I have a better question. Again Thank You For Your Responding Back. James

Hi, I'm just wondering if you can help me out a bit here, is it possible to dropship on this website also I paid for a domain through this site but I'm wanting to change it, just wondering if that is possible. I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks.
Reply
VitaliyG Premium
Hi Megan, if you purchased a domain, it cannot be changed (the name). You can however get a new domain, let the old one expire and go from there. I would only do this if you don't have any content on the existing site.

Regarding drop shipping, yes you can totally do this on your existing website. There really isn't anything that changes in terms of the formula. You're still making a niche site, getting traffic to it, but instead of affiliate marketing, are doing drop shipping.

The thing is though, in my opinion, affiliate marketing is so much easier and hands off that it is a better formula than drop shipping. Just my opinion.

Hey VitaliyG what's going on man, I have a serious question that is going to determine a lot about my decision but Is this just another scam so that people have to buy into this training because I just got a notification saying that I cannot ask anymore questions after 7 days unless I purchase the Premium package, so is this all just a scam or not? Nothing against you or what your doing but for example I just don't want to get half way through my training only to be told that I have to purchase this in order to continue.
Reply
VitaliyG Premium
Hi Austin, no this is not a scam. WA is probably the most legitimate program you'll come across that teaches how to succeed online.

The 7 day limit for chat is given so there is no abuse. I don't mind helping people out and neither does the whole community, but if everything is given out free, WA makes no money, and of course, there is a monetary incentive, and it's very small actually.

In WA, if you do decide to upgrade, you will get many benefits, but it's a two way street. What I mean by this is that you will have to do the work the training teaches to get the desired results.

This is what I did (and many others) who see success. You can check out their success stories on the homepage by just scrolling down to where it says "success is happening at wealthy affiliate".

Here is mine: And in my case, I promoted WA to reach this but the program here teaches you to make your own business in ANY niche market you are passionate about.

Hi vitalityG, am still around just waiting for a few dollars to pop up so I can grab the 1 year membership . I was thinking of getting started for 19 but than the renewal will be at $49. Is possible to start for 19 and at the end of the month opt for the yearly membership. ?
Reply
VitaliyG Premium
Hi Elvis yes! But there's an even better deal coming up, let me explain:

If you go for the $19 now, at the end of November, there will be a HUGE discount for yearly, which is the black friday event. It will be $299 instead of the $359 and you will be able to upgrade for an extra 12 months then for a hugely reduced cost. I would do it this way and it would save you a lot of money.

I haven't been active with WA, or building my online business, for the past couple of years. I want to maintain my business site so that I can promote it after my retirement from my job in December. Can you advise me as to what would be the most inexpensive route to take? If WA could just host my site, that'd be terrific.

Thanks for your advice, and I hope you are enjoying a fruitful year in business and with your family.

Hi Allan, yes WA does host websites for free if you are a premium member, so if you haven't already done so, you can move your site to WA's hosting and keep it here for free.

As for growing it, I would make sure the site follows along the main training in level 1:

AllanSiegel Premium
I'm not interested in the WA training, but rather just having a host for my business site. I'm already a premium member, but I thought there might be a different fee if WA just hosted my site. Or would I be better with GoDaddy or a similar host?

Oh no Wealthy affiliate is way better.

Plus you can host up to 25 sites on your existing premium account for free. It's all included.

I only have one site that I want to showcase, and I'm looking at cutting hosting costs. I know WA offers a lot, but at this point in my life, many of those frills don't interest me. There are many hosts out there, and for much less than half the cost of WA.
Reply
VitaliyG Premium
Thays up to you Allan but keep in mind that WA also has faster speeds for its hosting and SSL (security) where other hosting providers charge extra for, around $50 a month.

Here it's all part of the hosting included free. Your choice though.

Hello Vitaliy! I went through stage 1, but then I did not have money and now I got back to stage 1. I have created a site, paid for hosting and already on the site some sections are filled. It can be returned back or everything must be started all over again. But I still can not pay again for the hosting site.

I need some help please. I have an issue with my about me post. When I am in my back office of my website it is listed. When I attempt to add it to my menu it shows on the preview fine but when I save the changes all it shows is a blank page and it also shows a blank article under my recent posts link. However when I pull it up from my posts page in the back office the article is fine. I have tried reposting this several times and can't figure out what is wrong. My website is mricefishing.com. Can you see if it shows anything on there for your and please help me fix this?

Hi, Vitaliy I just wanna know your thoughts. I am currently signed up for a "click bank break the internet" webinar. I wasn't sure what it was all about so it caught my curiosity. From the advertisement the webinar is being promoted as the greatest thing since slice bread and how you can potentially make all the money this money. Okay fine I'll bite.

I'm 30 minutes into the 2 hour webnair and the creator of clickbank Justin Atlan is saying how you can generate all this income but so far he isn't saying the "HOW". He's going into this life story of how he started but it's not clear on you can generate income. So far 30 minutes into it that is the theme. He saying you make all this money but it's not clear how you achieve.

So I did a little research while I'm listening to the webinair and I found out the "clickbank break the internet" is actually a software that goes for about $2500.oo. So far it seems like the whole webnair is about selling the software. I have been to live presentations about the stock market and how to make tons of money off the stock market, if you purchase this software. That is the vibe I'm getting so far from this webnair

What are you thoughts on this software? Is it worth investing or buying this software for $2500.00. They do have a 30 day refund policy...……..but to spend $2500.00 though that is a lot.

But what are your thoughts?

Hi, I just watched your video on online Team Builders, I had enrolled with them as well as Essanté which I absolutely love! I was wondering if you could have a closer look at online team builders. I agree with what your opinion was on them but I guess I’m still a bit skeptical, which is why I enrolled into wealthy affiliate. Let me know if there are any questions I may answer in regards to online team builders😓
Reply
VitaliyG Premium
Hi Jacqueline, from what I saw, Online Team Builders was a team that basically promotes itself and Ensante organics through it. This is common in the MLM and network marketing world. While I cannot comment on the training in Online Team Builders, I am fairly certain that WA will provide better training on promoting Essante organics products.

Hey, Vitaliy. TJ here. Haven't been on in months.. first time back. Had to go get a real job. I gave my website two years of committed, intense work, but still have only made around $50 total. Now I work a 50 - 60 hour a week job. It pays the bills, tho' it leaves me with little time for anything else.

Haven't given up hope on these sites, but until I find SOMETHING that will start them earning money, I can't give more time to it. The quality, and quantity, of my work and dedication was extremely high, but it seems that didn't matter and it did not pay off.

I continue to search the Net for answers as to how I might make this work. So far no magic spells or brilliant workarounds.

I've seen hard work and perseverance doesn't guarantee success in this stuff. I'll keep looking for something that finally will.

I hope I find it.

Peace,

This is something you have to customize on the page. Open it up, click customize at the top and play around with the settings to make that disappear. Your changes wont save unless you click save so it will allow you to play around with this and get experience with the theme.

I dont know which theme you are using so I cant give specific instructions but what you want to change should be in the customize option.

Vitaliy, I have a question when you have time.
I purchased my domain, transferred from siterubix to my .com but apparently don't have any content in the .com site. Do I need to start over? If I do, no big deal, I was thinking of changing the theme of the page anyway. I did that previously because I was having a hard time following Kyle ( I had chosen a different theme than he did in the tutorial and swapped over to the same theme to follow along easier). I had to go back to the about page and republish it to get it back onto the siterubix.com page.

Many thanks,

You need to go dashboard-->settings-->reading and on that page you will be able to set the desired page as your homepage. It should be in top 2 menu options and it will say "set homepage as" and you will be able to select the page you wish to show up.

Hello Vitally! I have already chosen my "niche". It is going to be Health Care products. That is hardly a niche! It's gonna be huge. There's equipment, supplements, lotions, clothing, that could all be streamed in there... I sort of envy Amazon. Remember when they were just a book seller?.....

Hi Andrew, I like the idea you're going for, but I would recommend you narrow it down a bit, to a specific niche audience. It's the audience that is best to target, not the product. With the niche audience mindset, like people needing to solve a certain problem, say hair loss problems, comes the opportunity to promote the right things to them that they will want to buy.

To help you narrow down your ideal niche, I recommend this tutorial I wrote up for this subject:

I am about to build my website but I am still undecided on what niche to choose. I am thinking of Christian literatures and baby stuff and I am torn between the two. If I choose Christian books, im not sure if there are stores or companies that do affiliate marketing. If baby stuff, does it really have to be just one specific product like feeding bottles? Is it possible to have all baby stuff in one website (feeding bottles, strollers, clothing, etc.?)

Good morning! I have been out of the loop for a while. I was presented with a life altering situation in April and forced to change everything I know. My spouse presented me with a surprise divorce and everything went right into the gutter. I am trying diligently to get things back in order. I have no internet, no tv, no friends, no job, am living with my sister in the back woods of Tennessee! I had to cancel the subscription as it was on my X's credit card. I have a renewal the beginning of Nov for a domain and want to keep up with wealthy affiliate but if I change the payment method, it will charge me today and I am paid through the beginning of the year. What do I do? I have little data to play with and won't be able to go strong until I can get access to WiFi. However, I can do a little bit each month to stay in it - from my phone, at least. How can I put my card on record? It says I have to resubscribe. I just want to set it up so when it is time for a payment, it just continues to bill (monthly) the new card and I can pay the renewal on the domain.
Thanks for your attention and assistance.

Hi Hashi, I am one of your coaches here in WA and you're welcome to ask me any questions. The niche topic (first hurdle) is always tough. But this is what I recommend you check out to find your niche: After that, start the MAIN training here:

HI Vitality I'm new to your program an I would have few questions before I put dick deeper into the program , spend time and money. I am strongly determined to change my life and build an online business , but I wouldn't like to invest time unless I know if your's is the right one for me. So my questions would be : 1.What is the average budget needed for advertising as a beginner to start with and for how long should it be sustainable ?
2. My niece would be Mindfulness and I can only see few affiliate program offers in this category on your website. I wonder will I have access to mor offers with an upgraded membership?
If not would your coaching help me to find the right affiliate programs?
Thanks for you time

Hi Kornelia, great questions and I'm glad you're asking these types of questions vs jumping in. This is a good policy to follow overall, but here are the answers to your questions:

1. What is the average budget needed for advertising as a beginner to start with and for how long should it be sustainable?

There is free advertising (getting free traffic) and there's paid advertising (paying for traffic). Most of WA's course teaches you how to get free traffic to your website, but that takes a few months to see results from.

As for paid ads, that is also an option, but that can cost anywhere from pennies per visit or more. I recommend doing the main training, getting free traffic and using the money made to invest in paid ads.

2. My niece would be Mindfulness and I can only see few affiliate program offers in this category on your website. I wonder will I have access to more offers with an upgraded membership?

I'm not sure I fully understand this question. But there is an affiliate programs button if you go premium which shows you every available affiliate network you can sign up with to promote stuff that you want.

You can also look for these things on Google honestly, but the premium membership does unlock everything WA has to offer.

If you have more questions, do let me know.

Hi Vitaliy,
Thank you for introducing me to WA.
I will need some time to make me familiar with the platfor and the training so in order to speed this up I'd like to ask your some questions and I hope you can guide me with your answers.
1. What are the diff between the 3 web site options ?
2. Is it possible to do affiliate marketing without opening an e-bussines company? To open , run and close an e-bussiness company is not cheap so if my income for ex is around 100$/month , it is not worth but in some EU countries even this is considered income and you have to pay tax. So what can you do? Even if I will earn something at the beginning I'd like to reinvest it in trainings and ads so I can not see any profit in this bussiness for years but money will come to my bank account and all guverment want to see that these are going to a company and not private person. Actually this is my big issue with affiliate marketing type of bussines. At the momen I can not see how I can do it legaly without loosing money because I have to run a non profit bussines for 1-2 years.Please advice.
3. What type of computer do I need in order to have as min technical issue as possible with the platform and website building. Do I need Windows or Mac based one or is working fine on Linux as well. At the moment I have an Ubuntu based laptop. Do I need to buy a Win 10 based one or all is working fine on Linix as well?
4. In case I subscibe do I have to pay every month or WA will automatically widraw 49$ from the given account?
5. What are the conditions for closing the WA premium account ?

Thank you for answers,
Best regards

Hi Hunor, here are the answers:

1. What are the diff between the 3 web site options?

There are 2 website options: 1 is free (siterubix) and 1 is buying a domain name (yours totally) and hosting it in WA or anywhere else. If you upgrade to premium, you will have FREE hosting and buying a domain is only $13.99 a year (very cheap). It is the suggested option if you plan on doing this business seriously.

2. Is it possible to do affiliate marketing without opening an e-bussines company? To open , run and close an e-business company is not cheap so if my income for ex is around 100$/month , it is not worth but in some EU countries even this is considered income and you have to pay tax. So what can you do? Even if I will earn something at the beginning I'd like to reinvest it in trainings and ads so I can not see any profit in this bussiness for years but money will come to my bank account and all guverment want to see that these are going to a company and not private person. Actually this is my big issue with affiliate marketing type of bussines. At the momen I can not see how I can do it legaly without loosing money because I have to run a non profit bussines for 1-2 years.Please advice.

Don't worry about starting an official business. Do the training first, create your site, then when it starts to do well, then worry about all this tax stuff, that's how I did it.


3. What type of computer do I need in order to have as min technical issue as possible with the platform and website building. Do I need Windows or Mac based one or is working fine on Linux as well. At the moment I have an Ubuntu based laptop. Do I need to buy a Win 10 based one or all is working fine on Linix as well?

Anything is fine that has internet access (windows/mac is fine).

4. In case I subscribe do I have to pay every month or WA will automatically widraw 49$ from the given account?

WA will automatically withdraw the $49/month.

Keep in mind that you can get a discount off the first month currently for $19 (then it's $49/month after). We also have 6 month and 1 year plans.

5. What are the conditions for closing the WA premium account?

None. You can close anytime you wish!

Let me know if you have anymore questions.

Hi Vitaliy,

Thank you for answer.

So the domain I buy is protected and no one can take it.
The free site is just for exercise.

Please let me know how you did with the income part without an official business at the beginning. I will as well ask the tax authority here to see what the say.

Where I leave all banks are connected to tax authority and at the end of year they send all income to them. After this I will have to declare each item.
As I know even amazon associate can ask for prove that money coming from affiliate activity are taxed. If you can not prove they suspend your affiliate account.

Yes, you are right, it is too early to worry but I will need to find a solution for this.

Any comment is welcome,
Br Hunor

Hi Hunor, you don't need to worry about taxes or income until it starts coming in. You are building a business, the money won't come in right away.

When it does, then worry about taxes.

The free site you get with WA CAN be used for ranking and it works just as well, but your own domain you buy is yours 100%.

With the income part, I did the same thing I am advising you: I did the training, and when I started making it work and the money was coming in, I created a corporation for taxes.

I have a question.....I was going to buy the domain that I have my affiliate site which I should have done when I first start b/c now the .com is not available.

Should I go for the .net or something else? Will my google rankings be affected if I change it slightly to get a .com domain....

What's the best thing to do?

VitaliyG Premium
A .net or .org is fine Jessica and you can go for either. I like .com's more so if you want to go this route, you can just get a new domain to have peace of mine.

But will it affect the rankings of posts/pages to change it?
Reply
VitaliyG Premium
Not at all, the content is what affects rankings ultimately. I just prefer a .com because it's more recognized, but other extensions rank just as well.

If you can get a .com, I'd do it. If you can't, then a .net or .org is totally fine too.

Hey VitaliyG, I am asking you to take a look at a couple of my last post on my sites, and the sites in general, I will now the headers are too busy, and I have someone helping me with social media pages, right now my concerns are content, and keywords, I am still utilizing low hanging fruits, however the funlearningdevcies.com blog, is still struggling to get organic clicks, with 360 posts, I have heard that years 3+, and 400+ posts can be a major turning point, my betterhealthfortoday.com blog is doing better at 8 months old, it has an article that is getting some action, Thank you, for your time, Jack
Reply
VitaliyG Premium
Jack hi, so both your site have tremendous potential, let me start with that. However, I do remember you asking me about this type of stuff a long time ago and my suggestion back then is what it is now:

Your content is written in a way that seems like you're writing for computers, NOT people. I am reading many of your titles, posts and content and it is HARD to read.

HARD to read content makes people stay less on your site and affects your rankings on Google. What I would do is this:

Post new content once a week, but in the other 6 days of the week, go through your old posts on both sites, and edit the title (make it READABLE and a fun title) and make the content READABLE. The very way you are writing your comment and question to me indicates you HAVE this ability.

After you edit and update a post, update the DATE of it and do a URL inspection on Google webmaster tools. This will undoubtabley help rankings.

You've got to stop writing for search engines and start writing for PEOPLE.

Hi Larry, if you buy a .com (or other extension from WA), it's yours. However, if you use hosting on WA and decide to leave, the hosting must be moved to a different provider within 60 days after leaving WA, or else they will have to remove it.

The only thing I am concerned about is, would it be a waste of time considering the keyword search engine tool here suggested that the main keyword, "inheritance" is only a yellow KQI, and that it only receives about 7.7k average searches per month?

I am passionate about the topic, but it is a priority that I supplement my income. How do I know if the topic is too uncommon to provide me with value?
Reply
VitaliyG Premium
This is an interesting topic indeed Tsukumii and honestly, I'd consider a different approach. Perhaps how to manage your money if you're poor (a site on how to set a budget).

Chasing just 1 word in a keyword also is not something I'd focus on. Always go for long tailed keywords. As for niches, here is how I pick them out:

tsukumii Premium
Hi Vitality,

I want to start a niche site about "How NOT To Spend Your Inheritance Money." I can write articles of my own experience & failings to prevent someone from making the same mistakes, and offer them ways to invest that money to support them for a life time.

I could sell ebooks on there, link them to places like here (WA), review business ideas and then link to suppliers or gather information about opening a brick and mortar and many other topics.

It is an evergreen topic for me.

Hi David:

For title changes: Dashboard-->appearance-->Customize and change the "site tag".

For new page backgrounds, you'd need to install a new theme: Dashboard-->Appearance-->Themes, add new and activate. Omega, iconic one are good.

- tent camping

- aesthetic gardening

Can you recommend pursuing any one of these niches over the others?

No need to provide me with a password. I see what you're talking about. It's the side widgets on your site. You can remove them by going into your site, appearance-->widgets and then dragging (clicking on the icons on the right hands side and dragging them to the left).

This will remove them. I wouldn't honestly worry about appearance yet because your site needs to grow first to bring traffic, so focusing on the growth is where I'd start.

Ignore gravatar for now and build your site strictly through WA Richard. You don't have to leave WA because of this issue.

Changing your email and password in WA will not solve the gravatar issue. You CAN change those settings without leaving WA by going into account settings here:

Scroll to the top left of the WA screen and see your profile picture there.

Then click the arrow to the right of your profile picture.

This will open up menus, click account settings.

In account settings, you can change your email/password.

Hello,
I have my website up and running and I had a question. If I need to pay for any type of feedback
any other service let me know. My website: www.attentiondeficitdisorderinchildren
I was wondering if when I monetize the site can I have affiliate links on a different page? I also guess that
different webpage I need keywords there as well I suppose.
If it is not a good idea and I have to have links on the front page Then I may need a different theme which will be a problem as I do not know what theme to choose to replace this one.
Any input appreciated or I can pay for eval/feedback.

I think your current theme is fine Chett. I would focus on content creation at this point, don't worry about monetization yet.

Are my keywords in place and pushing me towards being ranked and indexed by Google? My niche is video games and accessories. Thanks in advance!

Hi Judd, your goal after doing this stuff is to create content on the website with the keywords you founds for it Judd. We do have a special discount for premium members right now for $19, for the first month instead of the $49.

When you first start this stuff, I always tell people to invest 4-6 months into this because it is a business you are building.
Reply
Okay awesome! I get that I need to create content targeting keywords but how do I get the content on my website and make it “revenue ready”? My entire niche is built off of this idea: “a video game store that analyzes data on the marketplaces of all different affiliate websites out there and offers the cheapest there is on the internet”. Will you go read my “About GameTech” post on my website and tell me if it makes sense and what I can do to further that idea? Right now I feel stuck, not knowing if I should be adding product content to my website or what!

GameTech.siterubix .com

I’m not premium so I can’t include url links :/
Reply
VitaliyG Premium
I recommend adjusting the niche topic and getting into reviewing gaming accessories for laptops and computers Judd.

Your goal isn't to sell, that actually turns people away. Your goal is to give people GREAT content that they read, trust and then follow through with buying as a result.

When you review products or discuss things on your site through the content, the other goal is to show your future readers that you know what you're talking about.

It's from this that you are able to generate trust. I would focus on every article you write being 1,500 words and to review gaming accessories for laptop's and PC's.

Aim for 50 blog posts, 1,500 words each and give this 4-6 months to work out. That's the goal I'd set and I would recommend premium for more details on this.
Reply
Okay awesome. But I want the content to be a little expansive than that. Would it be more efficient if I reviewed basically every gaming product/ game that I can think of? Or should I narrow it down to just Gaming accessories? Because later I want to sell many things on my website. Not just PC stuff but Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo, etc. Or should I just stick with a more narrow approach. I don’t mind writing 150 blogs about 150 different topics within the “video games” niche if it will benefit me. What are your thoughts?
Reply
VitaliyG Premium
The thing is, there should be a niche focus. People often try to broaden out thinking they'll be able to sell anything under the sun. This is the wrong way of thinking and usually it doens't work this way.

Stick to 1 type of gaming accessory, for PCs/laptops is my advice. Go from there.

Hello viatly.. hope all is well!! My brother and I are getting a patent on a build we have done for a product we designed in a specific neche. I want to dedicate one of the free websites to this specifically. after 7 days i still have access to all the things in here besides chat that trial member has correct? I will be going premium but just curious as i will before my 5 days is up. Talk soon and best regards... Brian =)

Hi Brian, yes, you still have unlimited access to the starter training post 7 days. The only thing that goes away is the ability to chat in WA, unless you go premium.

You don't necessarily need to put a description up (yet) Natalie. I'd leave it blank and keep building up the site's content. Focus on the appearance part LAST in the website building process, because that honestly isn't as important as content.

Your site is just not secure and the solution is simple.

1) Go here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites

2) Find your site.

3) Find where it says site+ on your website (don't log in, just find this site+ icon). Click it.

4) Activate SSL (this will protect your site).

SSL usually costs a lot of money for people outside of WA but here, as a premium member, it's free.

I would like my niche to be like the example you used, "earning extra money while in college." I am confused on the keyword searching tool. Is a vast amount of searches a bad thing? I understand that having over 50 in traffic and under 300 competing sites is a good thing. But I do not understand the searches. And I would like help with my niche titles. Can you help me?
Reply
VitaliyG Premium
Hi Natalie, yes having a large amount of searches indicates interest, so it's a good thing. Your goal is to find keywords with the most searches and least competition and write content based on that.

For example, an article on "how to pay for college tuition" is a popular keyword.

Okay,,,, VitaliyG.
I've made it to step 7 and I am totally confused! I have no idea what is supposed to go or in which format it's suppose to be in. In general I just don't have a clue what or how much is suppose to go here? I've watched the video 3 times and it's just not registering.
Reply
VitaliyG Premium
Hi Steve, is this the lesson: If so, then the solution is this:

Your goal with an online business is to pick a niche topic. When you do, the next goal is to create articles on your website that act as content. Those articles are what get picked up by Google and send visitors to your site overtime.

For example:

If your niche topic is helping people with knee problems, you'd write articles on different ways to reduce/stop knee pain and that would rank on Google, so anyone typing in how to stop knee pain or something similar would find your site and reach it.

A visitor who comes to your site and later buys from it, would make you money. Does this make sense?

Hi Vitaliy Found your through Website ATM when I was about to press the join button I said to myself, not again, another program that will wind up going nowhere and lost money. So I did a search about Website ATM and here I am. I listened to your review and said, I thought so. I cannot afford to lose any more money. I need to make money!! However, I am a self employed accountant and even though I do well doing taxes this only happens a certain time of the year and over the years my income has gone down due to clients leaving this world no matter what their age and their business goes with them. So I am looking for a way to make money that literally takes less work then accounting but for one reason or another I feel lost in the internet world. When I think I have it figured out I fall flat on my face. This time I am hoping, even if I have to hire a VA, to get somewhere that can make me some real income. Please help, thank you.

VitaliyG Premium
Hi Jackie welcome to WA and thanks for joining! I actually did join Website ATM which is why I called it a scam (And got my refund!).

Anyway regarding your situation, allow me to give you my take and strategy I'd employ now that you're here in WA:

1) Start with the main training here: You will select a niche topic you like, you will get a free website and access to a lot of free training, I would recommend doing it and seeing how it feels.

2) There is an optional $19/month upgrade and if you wish to stay longer (6 months or even a year), there are discounts for that, but only start with the free training for now so you can see how this works. Typically you should give this stuff about 6 months or more since this is a business you're building.

Now you are an accountant so one thing you can consider is making a site about accounting where you share your tips on how to save money and what people can write off on their taxes.

Now you'd be able to make money from this by selling products like turbotax and even selling your own consultations and charging people for it. This would get you more clients and you can eventually have a VA take care of this while you keep getting more clients from the site.

Hi Vitaly, i've been thinking in the best question , i would like to know how is the best way to learn how to leverage with credit cards or line of credits for an Amazon business that i am starting?I have one credit card with 2500 on it, that is all i've got.
Thanks
Reply
VitaliyG Premium
Hi Odelman, I need some clarification...

Are you asking me what to do with a credit card you have that has $2,500 on it and want to start an Amazon business with it?

Or are you interested in making a niche website that helps people pick out the best credit cards with the most lines of credit?
Reply
Hi VitalyG, i am sorry i failed to explain myself registered, a business to my name a few days ago, i will be reselling products in Amazon( after i get the tax sales permit in Texas) i am training with ALGO at my own pace, they are walking me thru the process i have distributors waiting for my call to buy at a low price an then go from there, on Amazon. The question is i do have a credit card with 3 months no interest and 300 dollars cash back if i purchase 1000 from it, i would like to know how that is done, and eventually i can get a business account in my bank with a possible credit line, but if i don't know what i am doing, i will get there in more time.
They don't teach any of this in Cuba.
thanks for your patience!

Hi Odelman, you are engaging in a business model that is pretty new to me, this is not what is taught inside WA.

It's safer, and requires less risk.

Hey Vitaliy. Just a question : when choosing my niche, and creating a website: do I create a website for a category like i.e. Play Squash and fi d a niche within that subject? Or do I create a website with JUST my niche i.e. Squash Rackets or Squash Coaching, etc? Hope thia makes sense...?

In this case, you'd make a niche site on squash and create categorizes within the site on the more specific subjects. But overall, your site would target the squash topic.

Reply
VitaliyG Premium
Hi Sara, firstly, if your old content was indexed on Google and you erased it, then copied the content to a new site, I would avoid doing that and just make a new about me page. It's just safer to do.

The only page you should copy over to your new site is your privacy policy, but as the training shows you, to mark it NOT to be indexed by Google, so there's no duplicate content. Once you set this up, publish immediately.

As for the sites which no longer exist, you either have to create a third (technically first since the old ones are erased) site, and then work on that page. Here is how you can do this:

I did make a new website.. I was trying to start from scratch. Thats why I dont understand why the old erased websites showed up for me to post something on. Arent they deleted completely? After logging out and back in and refreshing a few times, the new website did shoe up so I added my about me page to that. So it is working now, but why did the old deleted websites even show up? I thought eveything should be gone.. I really didnt get much further than the about me page and privacy policy on the old pages anyway. I just wanted to start fresh. I have been going all the way through the training again from the beginning and am currently at lesson 7, so hopefully once Im past where I left off before I shouldnt have any more issues. Thanks

Hi Sara, what I think happened is that the domain name showed up, not the site (which you erased). This is actually common. So there's no active site, but the domain name you used on it is still there. It's like a label for a store that doesn't exist anymore.

But yeah good call on starting over. I just want to make sure you get the best possible start.

Hi, My name is James Sullivan. I mainly go by Jim, though. You are showing as my Personal Coach. So, as I go through the training and have questions, I'm not going to be shy about asking them! Be patient with me. I'll always be patient with you and respect your time. I'm excited about building an Internet Marketing Presence. I worked in the IT Industry for about 20 years.

Hello Vitaliy,

I am quite stuck with my website because I can not make the website in the way I like. Could you please help me out?

I want to put my logo on the left of my menu column (top left side), but I don't know how to. I also want to change the typography of the page title, but I cannot find a way to do it either. I would really appreciate it if you could please provide some assistance regarding these matters.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Sarika hi, for logos though, you can try this: As for typography, it may be a theme setting but to check it out, go to dashboard-->appearance-->customize, see if header pops up, then click it and see if typography shows up and play around with it. If you like the changes, save them, if not, just click X.

But most importantly, in most cases, people get caught up with trying to make their site look "too good" but neglect the most important thing which is making the right content.

I personally find plain looking websites work VERY well!

Ok, so I got through the first 9 lessons. I will be going back to put things in more order as I think of them and stuff, but I am confused as to what this site will do. I have nothing on there to sell which was my purpose. There is nothing said on how to use the affiliate sites to sell items from their sites. I have ideas to incorporate which will be helping to decorate the nursery as well, give advice on colors and decor, totally get into the process of decorating an awesome nursery, but before I get into all that, I need the furniture and decor on here to sell.I guess I am going on so you know what I plan to do and get your thoughts, but to also find out how to sell the items.

Hello Denise, the WA free training did explain this stuff, but allow me to clarify:

1) You pick a niche topic you really like.
2) You make the website WA provides you with.
3) You create content on the website which is what Google picks up and then sends traffic to your site.
4) You sign up with affiliate programs so you can sell their products on your site. Then when visitors buy from the site, you make a commission.

This is how the affiliate marketing process works. So in your case, your niche topic is nursery accessories, so you can review products that you'd use to decorate a nursery and link people to places like Amazon where you can promote those products from and put them on your site.

I don't know the specific lesson, but you need to take the URL of your post or page, put it Google and put it in quotes and if it shows up, it means it's indexed.

Put this in Google:

Hey Vitality...I just wrote my first "About Me" and would love your feedback.. 1st part of Section 1:
About Dawn
I grew up in a very urban area. When I moved to a...let's just say, less populated, area in my early twenties, I discovered my love for the great outdoors! I wanted to be outside in the woods all the time! It didn't take long for the camping craze to take hold of me, and I was hooked!

As I got older, and my days filled with the typical adulting activities, I found it more and more difficult (especially with daughters!) to get my camping fix. My availability to get away, and my daughters' adversities to "roughing it" in their younger years became an ever-increasing obstacle.

Hi Hope, so here are my answers:

For bluetooth accessories, it can work, but my personal viewpoint on niches is to pursue something that is urgent to people and I think dog health would be better.

As for electronics, it's a bit broad, so something like computer gaming accessories would be good.

Stuff on Christian books can work and you can review these, but I would ONLY go with a niche that you love for now.

Hi Ian, here's how to know if you're ready to move further:

1) Make sure you're doing the main training here: 2) Each lesson has tasks. Make sure to complete and check off the tasks before moving into the next lesson.

This is how you know.

Am I stopped from ticking a box if I haven't completed a step? That's my concern, what's to stop me just scrolling down the the bottom of the page and ticking the boxes? I would not do it delivery but inadvertently

That would be you doing yourself a disservice Ian. It is obviously your choice and responsibility to complete the steps and move forward. So I would only click those boxes when you've truly completed a task/s.

I agree 100%, I want to do every single part of the training my only concern is KNOWING I have completed each step properly? I realise that may sound stupid, that I ought to know if I've done each step or not but I'm just being honest in saying it's not always clear to me that I have done so?

Most of the steps are pretty simple to complete, so you'll know when you do them. As for others when you have to write an article, this is something you'll do fine with as well, just don't chase every single little perfection, because that will stop you from working. Just start and do the tasks in each lesson and this will grow your experience.

Hi VitaliyG, I am currently reading lesson 2 of the course, where one of the tasks is setting financial goals. I am not sure though I can do this without having thought first at which kind of website to build. Could you please help me with this? How can I set SMART goals without having a precise idea yet?

Hi Federica, you can honestly go wild with this and write whatever goals you wish. The goal here is really to imagine a scenario where your site and business is making what you would be truly happy with it making.

I just wanted to say thank you for the article you posted that let me here! did a lot of research to find something like WA, mostly because I’ve been scammed by things similar to this, but then I came across your article and decided that this was for me! I’ve just started the first training and I’m so excited to get this up and running. Just wanted to personally thank you for sharing that article!

Hey....I have done the privacy Policy page....and I am on to this section:

After you publish your Privacy Policy, you are going to want to log into the back office of your website (Wordpress Admin area) through the SiteManager or through SiteContent. When you are within the editor for this page, scroll down to the bottom of the page and you will see the following settings.

I can't find the settings that I have check off...

Hi Sekope, the settings in this part are ones where you mark the page NOT to be indexed by Google. In order for that menu to show, you need to activate your All in One SEO plugin. Activate that in your site's plugin area, then redo the privacy policy part by scrolling down and it should appear.

I’ve been brainstorming nonstop about what I should make my niche and I still really don’t have anything. I have put together a short list of my passions, which include: hockey, traveling (beaches), sports, and riding motorcycles. I have never done anything with e-commerce before and I’m afraid that my passions would not generate me any profit/the profit I would love to make. Would you be willing to help me with the process of picking out the best niche for me? Thank you!

Hi Vitaliy,
i need your help again. Im writing my second site content and its kind of expounding on a particular thing from the first content. There are some things that are related and i would not want to repeat my self.

I would rather give a reference by highlighting a word or phrace so that when someone clicks on it ,they are directed to the information about it because it is already in the other content. I dont know if i really made sense there?

Question is,how do i do that? (connect articles from different site contents)

Thanks in advance.

Regards

Janet.

Hi Janet, you're basically talking about interlinking existing content to old on which is actually taught later on in the training, but since you asked, yes this is a good move and it will help Google crawl your site better.

Here is how it's done:

Hi again Vitaliy, just another question: When you make a niche website that has links to separate pages for products (for example Amazon) and you get big, how exactly do you get paid? Do the pages know that you are linking to them, or do you have to tell them after you have a lot of traffic? And how exactly does the paying process work? Thank you for all the helpful information you post on here. :)

Hi Lila, you would first need to sign up with Amazon associates (which would allow you to promote amazon products). Then you'd get special links for the products you wish to promote and put those special links in your site's content.

Then when people would click on that and buy from it, the special link would tell Amazon it's your sale and you'd get a commission in your amazon associates account you set up.

Then you'd be paid via check.

I would make sure to follow the training before doing this, as it's meant to help your site grow so you can get accepted into these kinds of programs:

Been ripped off too many times. Now on limited income. If I have to start spending money on this I am out. The past sites I have tried only milked me for every dollar they could. I have lost thousands and now can barely afford to live much less pay mortgage and utilities. If this will help me then I will try otherwise it will be a waste of both your and my time

Hey Robert, sorry to hear about your bad experiences. It may not mean much coming from me, but I had these problems before joining WA.

While WA has a paid membership, and it is optional, I assure you, it will never charge you anything close to what you experienced. We only have a $49/month premium and an optional keyword tool for about $20. The only other thing to consider would be owning a site which is $13.99 a year.

I'm just giving you a heads up on possible expenses in the future, but for now, you can enjoy WA for free and not be caught off guard at later times.

WA over delivers on it's services and you will see this as you continue your free membership. Do let me know if any other questions/concerns pop up.

Hi Vitaliy, I need your advice on a skincare niche, or a niche in general. How successful do you think a generalized skincare affiliate website would be? How could I make that better?
Also, is it possible to make a car niche, and would I get a part of the car sales that I link to from advertising for them?
Thanks and if you have any more advice for these niches I really need some.

Hi Lila, I would focus on a specific skincare type niche page. For example:

How to look younger.
How to stop acne.

As for cars, a niche site on how to be your own car mechanic is good showing people how to fix cars without going to a mechanic.

And in each one of these topics, you'd be able to connect with affiliate networks, get links from them to certain products you wish to promote and send people there.

Hi VitallyG, well I am not quite sure how you directed me to WA but I think I'm glad you did! My main concern right now is that I have very little funds to invest. Apart from buying a domain name, are there other costs at the initial stage. If my gut feeling that WA is a good place to be pans out, I would want to upgrade to Premium membership ASAP but beyond that $50 a month am I going to need more money to make money? Peace & Love, Ian

Hi Ian, the first month of premium is $19, then it's $49 a month.

We do recommend you get a domain but it's only $13.99 a year (not month). And hosting for it is free as a premium member, so it's a good investment for a very small expense.

And finally, the last recommended upgrade is Wealthy Affiliate's keyword tool called Jaaxy which is $20 a month.

Aside from these things, the rest is about time and putting in the work, which means doing the training to get free traffic (and giving it a few months).

We do teach paid advertising at later stages, but only get into that once the training you do makes your site get free traffic and start earning.

You will not find any other expenses aside from this.

Thanks for the details man, this all looks good to me and much as I like what they offer, it's far more realistic for me than the kind on investment Jumpcut are looking for!

Yeah I know that program, and honestly, you can produce great content and get good views on YouTube without having to pay the $997 they charge.

Hello Vitaliy G. I wanted to let Wealthy Affiliate I going to cancel my membership as of today. To much going on in my life can't catch up after all this time thinking I could but I can't so I need to cancel. Thank You for everything. Can you please direct how to cancel membership?

Sorry to see you go Dena. Look at your account profile picture on the top left and see the arrow to the right of it.

Click that and select account settings.

Then you can cancel your membership there.

Hope you are fine and that things resolve and to see you back in WA!

Cheers!

Hello, hope you're doing okay.
I am getting the following message when I try to log into my website backend 'Oops! We ran into an error on our side and we're working on a fix". I've been refreshing the page for an hour and it has not changed. Do you know on average how long it takes to fix these problems? Thanks! :)

There's an issue going on with some servers but it's being taken care of even as we speak James. It happened to one of my sites too.

It's rare, but it's been resolved right now.
