Thank you so much.

I actually started last September but then life happened - I knew I would come back to W.A. primarily because I find it very helpful for my "not for profit" blog but also, as a recently retired high school music teacher, I am certain it can help me to set up some other streams of income through affiliate marketing.

I also find it refreshingly straightforward and helpful rather than enticing with hidden expenses - which is what I first found when I went looking for help with online businesses. I'm glad I didn't give up and that I found W.A.

I consider myself a naturally not-very-tech-savvy person but I love to learn and I have found the training understandable .... I'm actually starting over though as a refresher - and just happened to stumble upon an affiliate that I know I could market on a website - so I'm kind of excited about this restart.

Thanks again for the welcome. I know I will need help and will be sure to check out your training.

Thanks,
Vivienne

Welcome to WA - lots to learn here- stay focused - go through the Certification Courses first - you will get confused or frustrated from time to time - ask lots of questions - people are here to help you. 

HERE ARE 3 WA'ers Training Posts - they helped me - one is vocabulary you use here - one is a detailed use of your dashboard to find anything you will need - one is a plug-in to add to WordPress - that will help you build your sties. Hope they help - they did me This one I wrote - deals with how to "close" for the result you want. Stay with it - you don't need a wish of good luck - you need a plea to study the material and stay at it no matter what - it will change your life and hopefully the people you touch with your message.

Thank you Vivienne for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. As a Premium Member you are probably aware of the AWESOME and FREE WA Keyword Tool we have unlimited access to.

This is the keyword research tool I have used exclusively after I became a Premium member 4 years ago and it has helped me many times to find awesome keywords that have led to Google page 1 rankings.

When you have the time, I created very popular WA Training Tutorials, Part 1 and Part 2, on how to use the WA Keyword Tool for keyword research. If you have not seen it and would like to learn how simple it is to use and a little about keywords, click the below link. Again, when you have the time.

Hey Vivienne,
Kyle again. I see you are making progress and your account is completely set up. You are doing great so far. Keep it up. And remember if you need help just ask.

I'll also be stopping by from time to time just to see how things are coming along.

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.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Here is a niche idea....
I like to do needlework - so I thought I could focus on "thread arts"... It would be in the crafting space.... It might include embroidery, cross stitch, sewing, quilting, crochet... things to do with thread....
I have a feeling I might be too broad ... but I'm interested in all those things myself. So, I think it might be fun to blog about them...

What do you think?

Another question..
I have a domain name and a website on it that I created a few years ago. It's not a monetized site.... but I really don't know the ins and outs of websites well. I was wondering, when I'm a premium member, can I somehow migrate it on to this platform so that it's in the same place as my others as I create more. It just seems, after watching the video, that you have already set up the things that I have no clue about that my other website/blog needs. It's a wordpress site as well. Just wondering...

It is quite a manual process to move a website to WA, but it can be done if it is a Wordpress based site.

You would have to follow these steps:

(1) Download your content locally
(2) Update your domain DNS settings to point to WA. Here are the DNS settings.

ns1.mywahosting.com
ns2.mywahosting.com

(3) Build a website here at WA using the website builder.
(4) Transfer your content over to WA

This is a very manual process and it can be done, but I don't recommend doing it if you have an established high ranking website, I don't usually recommend moving it. You can host up to 25 of your own domains here at WA within our state of the art hosting platform.

If you need any further help, let me know.

I think I will want to move my site over. At the moment, I can see my site but can't get to the dashboard. I have paid for the domain that it is on so if I can change to this hosting platform, I think that would be good. I would rather have it somewhere where there are people who know what they are doing who can help me. I have no idea who to contact to solve my "server error" issue. So, if I can set up the site here - that would be good. It doesn't have a great number of followers. It's something that I want to work on more now that I've retired from teaching. I did some Jaaxy searches for it and am really excited to add more posts to it.

I'm a fast typer so transferring the content - even if I have to copy it letter by letter doesn't bother me.

Would this process work...?

1. I copy my content . blogs etc....
2. I build a site here.

3. I do ....something? ....with the domain to detach it from the previous site and put the site I built here on to that domain - ... this is the part I'll definitely need help with.... (I'll try to figure out what the domain DNS is).... will the old site just evaporate???

4. I enter the content from the old site onto the new one

5. I'm good to go....

I already feel, just from the training so far that I know so much more about Wordpress than I ever understood before... So, I would rather be here....

Sorry for the long posts....I was teacher for years.... we tend to be wordy...

Thanks,
Vivienne

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

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

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

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

As a teacher, I always loved seeing "the lights come on" for one of my students. It was usually about music theory. All of a sudden the things that seemed so puzzling slid into place and made perfect sense.

So, I thought I'd just say - Thank you for all your teaching on this site. I had one of those moments this morning. Actually, I was washing my face and, out of the blue, something that I had been puzzling over for a while and thought I'd never be able to figure out just flashed into my mind in a logical, step by step, connected manner.

It's a great feeling. So, thank you! As one of your new "students" - I just had an important "lightbulb moment" and am confident there will be more.

Thanks,
Vivienne

Thanks for your kind words and being a teacher, you are going to have a competitive advantage online being that you are so well acquainted with HELPING others. If you can help people, you can build a successful business doing so (in any niche of your choice).

Hello Vivienne,

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate, now its time for training. its easy to follow, its all step by step.

Don't worry if you have a question or problem, you have a whole community behind you.

That's one of the best things about WA, the community. You don't receive training like this anywhere else and that's great! But, this community makes WA by far the best place on the web to learn.

Maybe, you can do something with your music background. What ever you decide you will do great! I wish you nothing but success!

All the best,

RickD.

Thank you. I have a lot to learn but I think this might just be the right fit for me. I appreciate all the training offered and the opportunity to start with the free account so that I can see how it works before making a big financial commitment. It seems to me, if I can get off the ground with the starter membership, then I'll feel confident to invest in the premium. So many programmes ask for money up front and then don't tell you that there is a lot of upselling later. It seems that this programme offers good value to start and then everything is included in the premium. I'm very hopeful!
Thanks again for welcoming me!

Hi Vivienne! Welcome to WA! This is a great choice for online biz. I have found it very helpful. The people here are very supportive and friendly. I hope you love it as much as I do.
I love music also. I started playing the flute when I was 6 and played all through school and then my first year in college, until I got married. I sure do miss playing. Music teachers give so much more to their students than they realize. ; )
I look forward to following along with your success here.

Hey Vivienne!
This is Kyle (not the owner, just a member). I am glad you made it. Wealthy Affiliate is awesome and you will like it. If you are ready to roll you can get started in the training if you click the green button labeled "Get Started Here" in the upper left-hand menu.

Everything is laid out simple, but inevitably things are going to get confusing for you at some point in the training. So if you ever need help don't hesitate to message me. I was in your shoes not too long ago and would be happy to help.
