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!

Thanks for checking in Vitaliy! No excuses....just very busy life! I wish I could say that I really enjoy writing anti-aging blog posts but the truth is, I dread it and honestly, I can't seem to feel the passion! I have this gorgeous website loaded with what I'm sure are terrific products but feel I really have nothing to write about because I don't feel the passion behind what it is I'm selling. I honestly have posted anything since the middle of October. I would love some encouragement.

Hi Heidi, this is common within niches someone doesn't have passion for and I've had this happen multiple times. My advice is always to find a niche you love, even if it means starting over. I'm not saying delete your current site, but it may be wiser to pause it for now, it will still get traction in SEO.

The other option is to grow a passion for the niche you currently don't have it for, but that will require you rethink how you look at it. Perhaps seeing yourself as helping people could inspire you to propel further in it.

Hey! Thanks for the message! I actually had a question about niches...... Ok here it goes quick and simple........1. Does it need to be about one product, like in the video he mentioned football snack helmets?? 2. Can it be name brand products, like if I wanted to focus only on, ie. Carter's baby clothes. 3. Or.....can I go a website about lets say home decor and have links to all kinds of home decor products on Amazon etc. If there is anything else you can tell me that'll help please dont hold back! Thanks

VitaliyG Premium
1. It doesn't have to be one product, it should ideally be a niche topic.
2. Yes it can be a name brand and products for it, but its better to target a niche group, not niche company.
3. Home decor is a good example of a niche topic.

Your "About" and your range of post topics really encourages me. I am still new, but I know so much more than I did in August, and it is because of people such as yourself. This is also encouraging to me to see so many young people moving forward, through failure and success, to create...to do good...and to grow.

Thanks Vitality - for your words of encouragement! I started and then dropped out since about last May. I was writing a book and couldn't do both! So it went to print last night and now I can get back on track. It's amazing what's out there now. I wrote a book for my daughter, it's really just for her and me - so I was able to just print 3 copies.. The world it is a-changing...

Good evening my terrific mentor!
I just returned home from visiting my 21 year old son who sadly, is in an institutional setting. He and a friend are in the process of making beautiful beaded ear rings, bags, bracelets and other original handcrafted items made out of small decorative beads.
What niche would this be in and how would I go about building a website to sell these pieces of art? Making sure they are seen and purchased would be my next challenge. Any thoughts?
Reply
VitaliyG Premium
This is one of those niche topics that involves making hand crafted decorations, which is the niche, and you can sell it on etsy, although if you have another niche site, I'd focus on that one.
Reply
JohnFurlow Premium
My first thought would be to check with the facility your son is in and see if they have a website that promotes the work they do and the facility itself. I would see if they would let you build a site and put a link on their site to direct folks to your site to buy items made the folks at the facility. That money could then be put into accounts for the boys to allow them to acquire or enhance their living experience of put into investment accounts to help them in later hears have some funds for themselves. Just first thoughts from a sixty one year old due who has done many things in life and I have come to the conclusion that for me leaving a legacy has become a much more important issue. Etsy is good too.
Reply
heifly Premium
John,
Thanks! I love your thoughts! The institution ways of selling products that the boys make involves the institution taking a good sized percentage of the profit. That leaves very little for them to buy more beads, thread and hooks etc and still sock some money aside. My plan was to put their creations on a website that would allow them to gain all the profit and I'd just take enough to open up and maintain. Thanks so much for your suggestion. I agree, leaving a legacy of love and helping others is so much more important :)

Would you mind checking out the review page I just created?
Tell me what you think as far as "helping" my prospects and whether you would be interested after reading my review, in buying any of the products.

Looks good, these top 5-10 reviews are good posts to have but you should also consider doing individual product reviews. People who look at these creams want to see the "best one". If you make one of these creams your main promotion, link your other reviews to it. Consider star rating as well so people can quickly see which is good.

Good morning Vitaliy,

I want to tell you. I recently got laid off after working years in the corporate field. I was looking at buying a franchise and came across your "review" of them. It wasn't positive or negative, but made me realize if I wanted to invest my money in them. I wanted to thank you for that and introducing me to WA. You definitely planted a seed of WA in my head and I came here and I am glad that I did. Thank you and I look forward to what the future brings.

hey, started working on my site but i'm confused a bit with these Posts and Pages, i got a question. If i created a main menu and in it 1 of the tabs has sub-menus right, i can make the main tab a page and the sub menus posts....
e.g. the main tab with drop-down menu is called 'Life Lesson'(Page) and 1 of the sub-menus in it is called 'Tip of the Day' (Post)....but if everyday i need to add content to the sub menu 'Tip of the Day' how do i make it a new article but keep it under the same tab if i used a Post to make it?
Reply
VitaliyG Premium
You'd have to manually add it to your existing menu, which can get quite annoying. I wouldn't recommend doing this. Let your home page be a blog roll so your new blogs will show up, and then take the most important pages and posts you write and organize those into menus/sub menus.

damn...well the type of site it is i would need it separate or else i would have to start over and change my whole niche. I have no problem doing it manually as long as i know how to.

Hi Vitaliy

Just wanted to say Hi. I have just signed up today for WA and a lot of it was down to your Youtube video. It was honest and really seemed to capture what WA is all about. I didn't click your link i'm afraid as I moved on to several more videos afterwards.

I've had some bad experiences online, some get rich quick schemes, a couple of websites that get you to sign up and then charge you for every single thing.....you get the idea! I'm willing to put the hard work in and get the education and am excited to be part of the community

So once again thank you, and it would be great to stay in contact.

This is a related question for the company I work with and wanted some of your professional technical input .
I still have a Day job that pays my bills, until WA picks up.

My day job is a small software company that develops a program for CPAs and Bookkeepers. We are trying to get our software product more Google traction in the rankings.

What tools can I use to find do combinations of Key word search's that we can use in our blogs and email blasts, we use an Auto responder called Infusionsoft.

V, is there somewhere on my site where I can put urls and other info which only I can see so I can use it to hyperlink a pic to it etc. There are times I get htlm that sends the potential customer to somewhere I dont want them to go and would rather them go to somewhere else by clicking on the pic. Some of the merchants I will be dealing with have that it is my sale in the hyperlink and at times I want a click to get me paid, but also send the customer to another section of their store and not just the exact item in the pic. Hope i made myself somewhat clear here. Have a great holiday and God bless

One more thing, if the page you wish to make isn't getting traffic, then there's no need to worry about doing any of this stuff. Traffic will flow to wherever you send it to, so if you don't send links to the page you want to make, don't worry about this stuff.

Hi VitalityG

I wanted to run something by you... and wanted your honest input please

I was doing some research and went to Ripoff report.com ( which was one of the sites from the Affiliate bootcamp ( phase 2 Lesson 4) for us to add to our website for others to see.

I typed in Wealthy affiliate because:
1. I wanted to add it to my site for other help out others
2. I wanted test what would happen if I typed in Wealthy affiliate

There were a number of people saying the WA scam reports are not litigate and falsified.
The WA has made a business out of calling other programs scams in order to promote Wealthy Affiliate.
That Kyle and Carson train us to tell draw people that other affiliate marking companies are scams and that we can be liable to get sued if these kids of reports

I's now Leary about the Affiliate Boot camp approach, to promoting scams.

Your thoughts?
Reply
VitaliyG Premium
Kyle and Carson have never endorsed that people go out, call other programs names and pitch WA, people who do that, do so on their own accord.

What Kyle and Carson teach is to show comparisons between companies and how much WA is better. When you compare the facts, no other company offers more than WA.

Visitors who see comparisons often misunderstand comparisons of facts between companies and assume that just means one is talking bad about the other.

Then there's people who literally back up scam programs and when someone who promotes WA exposes other companies as scams, they think WA is the bad one.

You'd be surprised to know how often people misinterpret reviews the wrong way, but rest assured, WA is legit and so is the training. I am proof of that.

You will always have negative ninnies complain, that's just how the world works.

Hey Vitaliy. long time no hear from. Update, the site is down because of my dissatisfaction with the look of it. I am not good at putting sites up but business cards I can do. My current focus is on the book I am striving to complete before the end of the year (Islamic Calendar). In less than 30 days from today. I intend to keep plugging away until it is in the format I feel comfortable with. Also, I am learning more about Affiliate Marketing and how it is done successfully. I know that WA has a program and my intention is to study it more closely. So that is my updates. How are you doing? Send me so info okay? Hope all is well with you and fam,. Good Day.

Great to hear from you Viola! Long time indeed! My suggestion would be to build the site according to the training here in WA.

If you don't like the look of the site, you can always change the theme you have and edit the look of the widgets/menus to fit your taste. Ideally, you should not get caught in the look of the site because it can be edited at any point, the key is to focus on the SEO of the site so it grows and then on the looks.

You can delete your first website without a problem, if it appears in site rubix, it is probably because you still have the domain and not the hosting with it.

Hi Gerard, as I answered in the previous question you asked on this, I recommended you do the bootcamp courses. This is not a get rich quick scheme, I totally understand your willingness to make Vegas, and Bootcamp is the place to start and make this happen. Focus on the courses, not on the speed of the result. I made Vegas and this is exactly what I did.

I am personally not a fan of MLM programs, but every MLM is different, some of them are make money opportunities in which case targeting a work at home crowd would be better as the niche, others are health related MLMs meaning you'd have to target a niche crowd that would benefit from it.

Hello, Snowy!

I really do enjoy finance. Talking about money was never a taboo subject in my home growing up, but with my friends money talk is about as taboo as you can get. I've always wondered why...so now I'm on a journey to help people speak openly about money so they can have a better relationship or understanding with it.

Continue taking your time, and enjoy the journey you're on, Snowy.

Thank you for taking an interest!

Hmm...

My blog is more along the lines of advice and growing money conversation in general. I'm not really looking right now to make money off people but to build an audience and get the ball rolling.

On the other hand, I would recommend WA because of all I've learned so far and the community aspect. You can't really go on the internet and find a community like this for free. So, if I make money off being an affiliate then great, but for right now it's just giving free advice and building reliable traffic.

Vitaliy,

Do you remember when you said that if I had any questions to come to you? Well, I'm cashing in.

I'm sure you get a lot of questions about niches, but it's so broad that I'm not surprised, so here's another two for you! I really enjoy reading blogs about gaining financial independence and making money online, so my two questions are:

1) Is that niche too broad for me? And

2) As much as I love reading blogs about it, having financial independence and/or making money online is not something I'm currently doing, so can I still start a blog on a subject that I've yet to experience?

If you could help me with either of those (or both!) you would be SO amazingly helpful to me.

Thanks for your time, Vitaliy!

Long time no speak. . .I was very pleased to discover only recently that one of my product reviews for a virtual assistant product reached postion 9 on the first page of Google ( well chuffed with that ) considering i am only able to devote maybe 8 hours a week to this. . .
I discovered also that interest in affiliate marketing is at an all time high in India.Do you have any suggestions on how to get a ' slice of that cake '.Besides delivering quality content what other methods would you suggest i try in order to capitalize on the great demand in India.Should i create a ' presence ' on their main social sites etc. . .A penny for your thoughts?
Thanks Vitaliy.

Well you can target ads on Bing in the India region on how to make money online. I would not really go too deep into this market segment and focus on affiliate bootcamp instead. You may get organic rankings in India. The point is, it is better to target the niche topic, rather than the specific area where the niche is popular.

Hello, Vitaly! First of all, I want to thank you! You save me a lot of money... I almost started Digital Altitude business but after I read you review I thought how dumb I am for a minute to believe in that idea... So I found a solution that you provided it is this website. I think it is time to start it and make a real money online. But I ask one thing from you. Will you guide me through this and be my coach, mentor or however they called.
Thank you one more time! And I am waiting for your reply. :)

I know there's a training for the things I'm going to ask, but I'm trying to focus on getting new posts and articles published. Can you look at my site (http://lifeonpurposecoach.com) and advise me how to fix the sidebar on my pages and posts and get rid of the privacy policy and fix it up to look better? Also, how do I change the uncategorized notice? If you have any other suggestions, fire away.

Hi Allan, you need to edit your widgets area to get rid of this. To do this, go to your dashboard-->appearance-->widgets and drag the things you do not want on the side bar off into the left (from the right hand box). This will get rid of all that.

I fixed it up, thanks to your clear instructions. My Privacy Policy is listed as a subtitle under "Contact Allan." Previously I had unsuccessfully tried to put it in the footer. Is it OK where it's at, or can you tell me how to move it to the footer, or somewhere else that would be better?
Reply
VitaliyG Premium
I'm not sure how to move things to a footer, it depends on your theme settings. You should make a separate Contact Allan page and a privacy policy page which literally lists nothing else but a privacy policy. Kyle talks about it here:

Hello, VitaliyG! I have a question about my web page if anyone could give me feedback, it would be appreciated. So I've made my web page which is about baby clothes and different kinds of baby apparel brands, which I have reviewed and also put my personal opinion in as well. For my pictures I put each of their brand logos under the description, so my question is...will I get in a lot of trouble for having company's logos on my page since I didn't purchase the pictures? I got them off google and they all came from pinterest.com or random sites and I didn't claim to own any of them.

VitaliyG Premium
It is a grey area but I would not do that Shauna. Unless you are directly affiliate with the products and can use their images, it is risky. You can do things like this for images:

ShaunaBri Premium
What if I have products from these brands and took a picture of them myself...is that a scenario that I could post logos on my site? Or since it's a company logo, that wouldn't work?
Reply
VitaliyG Premium
Yeah I think that's fine, taking your own pictures of these things should be good in my view.

Hi
I read your profile and it all makes perfect sense. I feel recently that I have been doing things wrong and getting no where. I am trying to get traffic to my site but not succeeding very well even though I have been using what I feel are the right keywords etc.
I know it is a learning curve, but I am finding that at 8 months in I still have not made a single sale. Do you think this is normal?
Thanks for offering to help people.

Hi Vitaliy,

Please go to:
Classrooms > Getting Started > How to Make Money Online - The Process Explained... and read my post where I mentioned you.

Don't know if mentioning your name (whether Vitaliy or VitaliyG) in a post automatically triggers a notification at your end. If so, let me know.

Thank you.
Reply
VitaliyG Premium
I don't see the notification, it will only trigger if you use the "ask a question" option in WA in which case I will be notified of it, mentioning my name will not trigger this notification. You can also leave a message on my profile or on yours to make this work Asser.

I'm not sure what I did. I haven't been on since Saturday. Lots of e-mail then and I took care of all of them. I worked around with my e-mail and must have done something real wrong because today now that my Internet is working again I have NO mail.

Hi Vitaliy,
I'm having a problem hooking up my email account to gmail.

I have been looking at my website and cannot find any reference to MX records.
Can you help please.
Thank you, appreciated.

I have no idea what this is Ruth, all I know is that you can either use your main gmail account on your site and/or create an email that has your site name and FORWARD that to the gmail account, without any need for this mx stuff. Please see this tutorial, maybe it'll help: Personally, I just prefer using a gmail account, it's so much easier.

You have little content on the site and the other issue is that a lot of your articles are very short. You should try to get each article 1,500 words or more.

Also some titles could use work. There's good reviews you're doing, but overall, a lot of the keywords aren't really attracting audiences. You should try to incorporate engaging titles in addition with keywords to attract them

Wondering if I should go back and add content and do a new keyword search to use in those older posts?

Well as long as it doesn't interrupt the flow of new content to your site, you should be fine. I do sometimes go back and add more content to shorter posts, nothing wrong with that :)

I would also recommend you interlink your posts more often with one another.
Reply
amyr2017 Premium
What does that mean? Just as it sounds? Link one post to the other -- i.e. "click here to find out more about blah blah" ...?
Also, if I change the title of a post to make it more relevant to keyword searches now that I have a better understanding of that process, what about the permalink...? IF the permalink is different then won't there be a 404 error? Thanks.

if you change a title, it'll only reindex, it won't change the permalink, here is a guide on interlinking:

I am currently studying the affiliate section of the training materials. I have already created many pages and posts. I am confused, however, because compared to other websites I have viewed, my website looks terrible. Perhaps, I missed the sections that cover the proper appearance of the website or that section comes later, but, I am reluctant to join affiliate programs and submit my website for fear that they will look at it and deem me to be unworthy of consideration.

Please help

Hi John, this may be a subjective thing as people tend to always think other's work looks better than theirs. You can always change the theme/template of your site and it'll change it's look but if you're doing the training, completing the tasks, I assure you, you're doing the right thing. I personally don't like visually appealing sites and in my years, a plain site works better than a none plain site.

Hi, I'm brand new to this.

I saw your blog post, and you said that this is the only place where you honestly can make money.

Can I ask what the best place to start is and the FASTEST way to start earning money?

I'm not interested in paying a monthly fee unless I'm first making money doing this.

Also, will it work if I'm from Canada?

Thanks,
Christian

VitaliyG Premium
Hi Christian, the thing is when it comes to the fastest way to make money, you have to invest money into doing things like paid advertising. Honestly, any business where serious money is involved takes hard work.

In WA, you get the straight approach to reach this success in the cheapest way possible. People have built a career doing this like I have. Do not make the mistake of going after the quick riches because they do not happen and people lose money and time doing it. Also this may help:

What, in your opinion is the time commitment required to make $500 per week NET as a beginner?
Reply
VitaliyG Premium
First you need to write a lot of content and have your website established as a good authority. Once that happens which can take 3-6 months typically, then your business will grow.

There is no set amount of time or specific date to reach this, it depends on your own work, what you promote and how hard you work, every little bit of work you put in now, pays later for a long time to come.

Again, you're chasing the time frame and looking for fast results, speaking from experience, this is the wrong mindset which leads to failure 100% of the time, focus on the training, working hard and getting a great business up and the money will come.

Hi, thanks for your quick replies.

I do realize that there's no such thing as a magic pill, but I'm not sure about this business model of putting up a site, and writing about the products.

For example, do I have to purchase the product, and then write a review, or do I just simply write reviews for random products?

The idea of blogging and then making money seems extremely difficult. A lot of the time it's really just talking to yourself, I don't know anything about getting traffic. And even after I have traffic, conversions will be very low
Reply
VitaliyG Premium
You just answered your own question in the last part of your comment Christian, you haven't been in this business so the things you believe about it are completely not the case.

Your writing is what leads Google to you and then Google ranking your site and then that leading to traffic. As for product reviews, you can certainly buy them and it does make for a better review, but it is optional in the long run.

The key is to know the niche and thus know the products even without purchasing them. Your expertise in the niche topic makes it easy to review products you haven't bought but based on their parameters or what you know about the niche, you can provide a good review of it and you're not promoting everything, but things you also don't like to lead into affiliate promotions of things you do like.

It all stems from the niche topic you chose Mahamed and explaining who you are and why this niche topic is important to you, sharing your history on it and explaining why you can help people in the niche. Try to tackle the about me page from that angle.

Have been on a mission to find a home online. I understand and have written extensively about community and support on my Blogspot blog. However, creating everything from scratch has proven to be somewhat unrealistic. I have recently blown through MLSP, GlobalNPN and therefore have a frame of reference. Initially, just having gone through the first introductory training, I am very encouraged. I want to take my existing resources and port them to a more professional and robust environment. One final thing, at 61, I have recently lost my job (December) so there is a lot riding on my success at this juncture. Therefore, any help and guidance will be both valued and appreciated.

Hi Richard, what I would do is take the knowledge you attained from the other programs you mentioned, but do not use their strategies unless WA also recommends the same thing.

The thing is if you didn't see success from those things, odds are their advice was not good, which is why if you follow the training and advice of WA, you will get results.

So that is my advice. I would not abandon the experiences of the other programs though, but put the WA training ad priority #1.

Hi Vitaly, I'm going to shoot you some doubts, sorry, but I really don't know anything about this, so, excuse me.
1. Difference betwen Adsense ads, affiliate program, and advertising program?
2. What are they and which is better?
3. If I going to make a website about the labrador, which will be my keyword?
4. With WA, Do I get my own domain?
5. What's Aweber, should I use it, how can I get it?
6. How I contact relevant companies?
I'm in lesson 2, maybe the answer is ahead and I'm just rushing my self. But I like to know this.
Hope you can help me with this and with others onwards.

1. Adsense is a program where you put Google ads on your site and they pay you each time someone clicks. Affiliate program is a program you sign up with to promote products through your site. Advertising program is where you put up ads on Google and Bing's search engine to get clicks/traffic.

2. Affiliate programs are better than adsense because they pay more. Advertising programs are only good to use once your site makes money for free because then you can use that money to set up ads and pay for them.

3. You will find plenty of keywords: Labrador care, how to take care of Labradors, ect...you'll find out how to find keywords for your niche throughout the training.

4. You get a free sub domain, but ideally, buying your own is better and through WA, it's cheap and at a flat rate. Other places charge you more each year (you pay yearly for a domain).

5. It's a program used to collect emails and automatically send out emails to people who subscribe on your website. Right now you don't need it, just do the training.

6. If by relevant companies, you mean affiliate programs, you can just sign up with places like petco, amazon associates and other places (WA shows you where to find affiliate programs), sign up with them and then promote their products, but don't do this until the training says to.

Hi Vitali,

By my calculation, being a member since 2007 gives you more than 8 years experience and it's that which I hope draw upon.

I'm trying to start a wave of sharing between the successful people on this site and the newbies who come here dreaming to be them one day.

If you could please share your thoughts and any incredibly useful links like this one for us newbies to pour through and get derive both motivation and ideas out of, that would be great. Here's our thread so far, and as you can see I'm putting in a lot of effort to get it trending!

Hi Vitality !
I am thinking of promoting basketball shooting technique training niche as i personally had spent some time did some research on it in the past few years. However, i couldn't find any relevant affiliate product in big internet retailer like ''amazon'' , ''clickbank'' but i found few affiliate programs from google search which i am not sure is it reliable or not. Wondering should i still stick to this niche ?
Reply
VitaliyG Premium
Basketball training is a decent niche, but if you target something like for kids, it may be better. In that case, you can promote actual basketballs, basketball hoops people can set up in their backyard and even things like basketball gear.

But you may also have to make videos and tutorials on shooting and playing as well to help illustrate what you're aiming to give your audience.

Keep this in mind in this niche.
