Recommend you list your website here in your profile so WA members can find you. You site is a good promo for WA and a good start for your IM. I have a similar site focused on building a business and creating financial resilience, but I also have a site for my passion, personal, financial and community resilience. It is this site where I concentrate on selling products that will help people be better prepared for any emergency.

Pick your passion and build an affiliate marketing site around it.

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my websites. My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live a month ago and the one on sleep apnea has been up for almost four months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Bruce, ♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right under training (click on my picture). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

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

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

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

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

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

WA-Bruce Premium
Thanx Kyle.

I would like to run my website past you for comment if I may? I'm in the process of working out how to put the comments sections on the bottom of each page properly, along with setting the side menus up correctly. Apart from that, I think I'm looking pretty good so far... With the exceptions of the additional refinements coming up in the next lesson parts that is. I also have 3 other niche product websites ready to continue setting up once I have this 'Boot Camp' one up and running in the background.

Thanks so much for all the work you put into the community, it is most appreciated. It is awesome to have 'walk through' mentoring from someone who has actually has the 'runs on the board' and achieved the successful end result we're all learning to master.
I am very excited about my prospects over the next 12months. Cheers mate :-)

http://affiliatemarketingrefined.siterubix.com

Oh, p.s. ...just an additional quick query. Is it a realisitic or naive goal to aim to make $1000 p/month by the end of August this year? I'd like to nail it by August 25th (my birthday). If I'm putting every available moment I have around my sporadic job schedule into this boot camp website predominantly. I aim to have all 6 modules of 10 lessons achieved asap...

Kyle Premium
I think you are off to a nice start Bruce, I do have a few suggestions though.

(1) Be thorough with your content. Quality content is content that is helpful and often times means it being thorough.

With each page or post you create on your website, people should come to it and feel as they have gotten the help/information that they were looking for and it was presented in a way that was interesting.

(2) Target keywords within every page or post.

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

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

As for income, that really depends on the actions you take but by August it could be possible, for my shelf it took me about 9 months to get to this level. But the effort you put forth now will always pay off later and your business will continue to snowball as you move forward.

WA-Bruce Premium
Cheers for the input Kyle. I will re-assess the pages. They're probably each too broad aren't they. They cover the whole picture, yet miss the keyword focus of each page like you said.

I was also looking around at other people's pages for reference and am thinking that each of my pages would be probably be better as blog post pages instead. Refined down to the keyword focus like you suggest, but under blog post 'tutorial' titles for each. What do you think? Am I on the right track there too, or should I just rework them as pages still and just work other content for the blog posts?

Thanks again for your input, it is much appreciated.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yes, you are definitely thinking along the right lines here.

Keywords are the premise of all of your content. Ideally you will be finding keywords with a lower competition (also known as QSR) because it means that you are going to be competition with less websites in Google when you go to create your content.

You want your keyword to meet the following criteria:

(1) Must be lower than 200 QSR initially, as you get more authority in search engines you can tackle more competitive search terms.
(2) Must get some traffic, I ideally aim for over 50 searches per month
(3) Must make grammatical sense

I recently created training on how to come up with great keywords here and this is a strategy I have always used to build out my website Bruce ... Once you have your keyword, you are going to create a page or a post on your website targeting that keyword. It should be within the following places in your content:

(1) Somewhere in the page/post title
(2) Somewhere within the first paragraph

And then write your content naturally and make sure it is engaging. People search "keywords" when they are looking for something so as you start getting ranked under these keywords, you are going to start to see traffic.

Once you have traffic...you have a ton of opportunity to generate revenue.

Hope this helps you out Bruce!

WA-Bruce Premium
Awesome, thanks again Kyle.

I'm having an absolute blast with this mate, it's quite a lot of fun putting things all together. Especially when the 'penny drops' on understanding things better.

I've just spent another whole day messing with a whole bunch of content ideas for blog posts etc... I think I'll get a whole bunch ready and wait until I get further along in the boot camp training before I post them so I can make sure they're all in the right context and keyword sorted.

I've also formulated a goal to try to nail for my August goal too. I aim to write at least 10 content pages a week until then if I can. Will see how I go. From your experience, does that sound like a good plan?

Thanks again for all your help. Hope you're have'n a good day.

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! :)

Welcome Bruce, to Wealthy Affiliates and thanks for accepting my invitation to check it out.

There's a lot to learn here, the best place to start would be the level 1 certification course. So start with the first lesson by clicking on the link below. Be sure to create a profile and add a picture, that way you'll get lots of help from all the peeps in WA. You'll find out how to do this in the getting started link above.

Sadly some people don't even get this far, for some unknown reason.

If you can do this, (i.e.) follow simple instructions, (implementing as you go), soon you will be on your way to making your first sale.

And don't forget that you can also access me for 1-on-1 support by leaving a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/affilicoach or by private message if you are a premium member.

There are a ton of other features you have access to right now, but they are explained in your main training linked above. Your #1 job right now is to get to lesson 1!

★ ★ ★ Access Your Bonuses! ★ ★ ★

I also wanted to let you know that if you join the premium membership in this 7 day window you'll get a TON of awesome stuff from me.

First off, you'll get a 59% discount ($19.95 for 1 month) on your membership.

☆ ☆ Bonus #1: Live Case Study 4 Part Webinar Series

Get access to a 4-Part-Series Live Case Study webinar. It's video series where a professional internet marketer creates a complete 'niche website'. All steps are included and thoroughly explained, including research, rank, content creation and monetization. Total length of the videos is 4+ hours

This will give you a broad overview of the type of site you will create on Wealthy Affiliate. I think it's always a good idea to know the direction you are headed before you start your journey.

Please feel free to ask questions in the community through live chat or the Getting started classroom above. Or as I mentioned before, hit me up anytime you want in WA.

Anyway, I know you'd be eager to have a browse around so I'll let you get your feet wet.

Best of luck, and don't forget you can always ask me for help!


Best,
Frank
