Hello, and glad you decided to stop by.

I'm Mazlan and you can call me Lan, for short. A civil engineer by profession and retired at 60. But had too much unproductive time, so started to work 9-6 again. This may sounds crazy to you.

I have been doing so much crazy stuff including writing at Hubpages. The payout is not that great over there, so now decided to see better success here at WA.

English is not my mother tongue, so some of the earlier writings were atrocious. I should revisit and edit most them. But for now, will go through the training courses here first.

Thanks again for dropping by.

Take care

Mazlan

Mazlan, 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 Mazlan.

Thanks Kyle for this much-needed support!

I am still working on the website and will give you the link for comments once it is 'presentable!' I want to finish the BootCamp #1 before I publish the site.
Still debating whether to stick to site rubix or buy my own domain. Can I do this later?

my domain URL is wantextracash.siterubix.com and the Title is " I Want Extra Cash' It will be selling WA program.

On About Me - will it look bias if I mention that I am WA member and list out reasons why I join WA. Or better to write it as a separate blog post?

Affiliate Link: I will be using photos for my blog post and I thought it will be good to show the photo source. Instead of CC photos, I want to use photos from Photo Affiliate website.I applied to Shutterstock and since my only blog that I have is with Hubpages, it was rejected. It doesn't approve subdomain websites and those not related to photography etc.

Will subdomain under site rubix also pose a similar problem when I apply for other Affiliate program?

That's all for now Kyle.

TQ

Publish your content as you go along, don't wait until you have a full site. Google likes content that is regularly added to websites and you never want to hold back content that is done. A constant flow it the best.

You can mention that you are a member of WA on your about me page, just don't be overly biased on your site. You want to come across as being trustworthy with your content.

There are many ways in which you can find and add images to your website. I have outlined this within a video walk-through that I created on images. This is very thorough and will give you a lot of great ideas as to how you can find and incorporate images on your website. Also, do know that if you are an affiliate of Amazon you can use any of the images (product) from their website on your website, which opens you up to an image bank of MILLIONS of images.

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! :)

No problem at all Mazlan, it is great to have you here at WA and I absolutely look forward to working with you and seeing you progress in the coming days, weeks, and months ahead.

I am connected to WA throughout the day, so if ever have any questions let me know. I am always around! :)

Hey Mazlan,

I forgot to mention the other day that I am going to still be offering you my awesome bonuses if you join within the next 4 days.

Here are the bonuses that you are going to be getting:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)
(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there. Where else can you access the CEO of the company for help?
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well Mazlan and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)

I hope things are going well Mazlan! I want to remind you of one thing, your hard work and dedication IS going to pay off. Keep working through the training, communicating within the community, and of course, ask for help when you need it.

Just heading out for a bit here, but do leave me a message if you need a hand with anything. You should have Premium communication back for an additional 7 days now, so hit me up when you get a chance Mazlan!

Kyle, as I had mentioned earlier, I have been quite busy with my office work and had no time to go through the video lessons. But I must.
On the subject of niche, I will probably zoom down to " Malaysian Snack Food" Can you suggest a better version of this heading that is searchable and will intrigue readers to go to the website? TQ Kyle for your patience!
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, I think this is too targeted actually. What are you going to sell to your audience?
Reply
wagreatstuff Premium
That was what I was thinking before. But when I read (or misread) the link that you sent on 'is my niche a profitable one" I though I can make it work. So, I was wrong.
I have to rethink and come out with another niche..something that sells to the readers.
Any help or idea from you? ;-)

Kyle Premium
What are some things that you are interested in? Hobbies, passions? It could be something that you are interested in and have no experience with as well.

Hey Mazlan, just wanted to pop back and see how you are doing. I noticed that you haven't quite set-up your account yet, just wanted to let you know there is a video on how to do this if there is any confusion. Setting up your account will lead to much better help here within the community as people feel like they can connect with you better (with an image and a description)

Just wanted to make sure that all was good and if you do need a hand with anything, just let me know! :)

Hi Kyle..sorry for this late reply. I have been traveling and have no time to go through the course, but will do soon. On the subject of website niche..I have changed my mind and will probably work on things related to my country, Malaysia. However, it may cover several sub topics such as travel, things to do, food, working in Malaysia, guide to expat etc. Will these be too broad and not google search friendly?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, that is too broad. All of those are niches. Working in Malaysia is a niche and a huge one. Food in Malaysia...another huge niche.

I would narrow it down, you don't want to become a catch all or you are going to be in a position of being overwhelmed. You can definitely head in this direction, but narrow it down. You can always diversify down the road.
Reply
wagreatstuff Premium
Thanks, I will do this. But any special topic related to the above that has the potential for lots of traffic AND affiliate link?
Reply
Kyle Premium
All niches have a ton of opportunity within them. There are 2.8 billion people online and we are all now more connected than ever. This is the audience you are dealing with the Internet and even some of the most obscure niches have millions of people interested in them.

You should read about this here within a blog post I recently created on this exactly topic: YOU make a niche profitable and that is why it is important that you decide on a niche that you are interested in/passionate about. It will make the journey that much more fun and exciting. ;)

Hi Kyle, it's me again with the request for help. I have written a short write up for my WA profile and for my blog site. Can you review, comment and edit pls. TQ

Profile for WA:
Hello, and glad you decided to stop by.
I'm Mazlan and you can call me Lan, for short. A civil engineer by profession, retired at 60, but had too much unproductive spare time, so started to work 9-6 again. Crazy eh?
I have been doing so much crazy stuff including writing at Hubpages. You read some of these writings at hubpages dot com/@greatstuff
English is not my mother tongue, so some of the early writings were atrocious. I should revisit and edit most them if I can now find the time!
Thanks again for dropping and I hope to do well here at WA.
Take care
Mazlan

Profile/About Me for my blog site:
Hello, and welcome to my blog site.
If you are traveling to Malaysia and wondering what and where to eat, then there are many websites that will take you there. But here, you will find my collection of snack food, both junk and healthy snack food that you may want to try.
I have been traveling to so many countries and working abroad in the MiddleEastern countries and at times, I wonder what snack food they have to offer.
Now that I am back in my own country I should write something on this.
But first, let me introduce myself.
I am Mazlan and you can call me Lan, for short. A civil engineer by profession, retired at 60, but had too much unproductive spare time, so started to work 9-6 again. Crazy eh?
I love food and love to experiment and tinker around in the kitchen, which sometimes get on my wife’s nerve!
I also write on Hubpages and you read some of my articles at hubpages dot com/@greatstuff
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, that is great. That is a good profile, just avoid linking to things like your hubpages.com account within your profile like that as we don't allow promotions within profiles here at WA (by all means you can do this on your actual website).

I think you are going to fit right in here at WA if you are a natural writer and you will be MUCH better off writing your own content for your websites versus submitting it places like Hubpages. We are going to teach you all about this as you walk through the training.
