About Wozzy
Joined July 2017
A person on a mission...Where do you start? My life in a nutshell! Spent 6 years in the forces straight from school, came out and learned a skill as a Business Application Software Developer. Since 1987 in permanent employment until 1996 where I decided to go Freelance. Worked in various countries, such as UK obviously, Germany, Denmark, Holland, Sweden and Switzerland and life was good, up until 2010 when things changed and contracts dried up. Various reasons but a major one are outsourcing to other countries. Anyway decided to venture onto the Internet and learned a lot (I think) but never actually made any money. Resonated with many only to find out that much of what was said came under the category of "BS". Been burnt really only once, but this learned me to become even more skeptical than I already am. Just who can you believe? Anyway, through much research I came across WA and could only hear and read good things about the training program so decided to venture, and here I am. Mick

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! :)

That's brilliant Kyle. I know it's best to choose a niche you are passionate about and I am passionate about quite a few things but I have to be practical and take into consideration whether I could make a good living out of it. I think for me I will initially be going down the Affiliate Bootcamp, and when I can see some value then create additional niche sites.

Sure, you could definitely head in that direction. Any direction you head it can be a lucrative, full time business. The key is holding focus within any given niche and doing so for a sustainable period of time. That will lead to you become an authority to your audience (as well as search engines) which will lead to long term stability.

Awesome Mick, I know you are going to really love Premium and going forward and as you work through the training, you are going to make some wonderful progress.

Remember, success is the result of "action" and "hard work". Everything else you have here at WA to facilitate you along the way, and if you add those two items to the mix you are going to do very well! :)

Hi Mick,

Brad here again. I just wanted to followup with a specific example of an advanced strategy you can take advantage of here at Wealthy Affiliate that is not possible anywhere else.

First, I noticed that you have not yet completed your account setup. Setting up your profile is key to getting the most out of Wealthy Affiliate. This is your calling card when it comes to contributing to the community and getting other members here to help you out learning strategies like the one I will explain here in this post. People are just less likely to respond to "invisible" people.

To complete your setup, go into your profile page (click the box to the right side the blue Rank box at the top right of any page in Wealthy Affiliate to get there). From the top of that page, click the big green "Edit Your Profile Here" button to enter a bit about yourself and your goals.

Then click on the green "Add an Image Here" button to upload an image of yourself or your dog or anything really that you would like people to associate with you. Some people change their images frequently just for fun, like rotating between their favorite Star Trek characters or whatever.

Ok, back to the advanced strategy I promised.

A somewhat little known fact about Wealthy Affiliate is that the internal blog system here ranks highly in Google. If you are in your profile page reading this, then you should see a "My Blog" link at the top of the page. Go there and simply click on the big blue "Create a new blog" button to create your first blog post.

This is different from your own free blogs that you will create here using SiteRubix. The most well known aspect of the My Blog feature is that all your followers within Wealthy Affiliate will be notified of your new posts. That is how most people think about it and how they use it.

However, with the My Blog feature the blog posts you create show up directly on http://my.wealthyaffiliate.com. The posts are accessible there by anyone searching on Google (no need for them to be a WA member). According to the backlink checker I use, http://my.wealthyaffiliate.com has over 35,000 backlinks pointing to it from other websites. Type site:my.wealthyaffiliate.com into Google and you will find it has over 400,000+ pages indexed in Google. This makes it an authority site and gives it ranking power in Google.

Even better, when non-members access your WA blog posts from google you automatically get credit if they signup for Wealthy Affiliate (e.g. your WA cookie gets set even without your affiliate link, you get credit based on the fact that they visited your WA blog post).

And it gets even better. When non-members visit your WA "My Blog" posts, if they click on a link on that page it automatically opens a signup form for Wealthy Affiliate, where you get credit for that referral in the WA affiliate program. Even if they don't click on a link, that signup form pops up after 15 or 20 seconds of arriving on that page. Outside visitors can either signup or close the popup and continue reading your blog post. You can see how this works by creating your own WA blog post and visiting that page in a browser where you are not logged in to WA.

There is no other program out there that allows you to write posts directly on their authority site and make commissions from those posts. In your other promotions on your own blogs you can link to your WA My Blog posts without using your affiliate link, since you get credit anyway. There can be various advantages to this, as you will learn in later training here at WA.

The only caveat to this strategy is your My Blog posts should be helpful to the other WA members. You can't blog about dog training for instance, it should be about affiliate marketing, blogging and online business topics.

However, since it is all optimized to support you in making money from the WA affiliate program, this isn't really a downside. Just use your SiteRubix niche sites to promote niche topics like dog training, and use your WA Blog as (one way) to promote the WA affiliate program. For example, you could use one of your free Site Rubix sites for a favorite niche topic, and one for an online business related niche to promote the WA affiliate program.

Here is a link that explains more about how to make the most of this strategy:
Here is the next step in that training that shows how one WA Blog post is ranking in Google: Hope that helps!

Hi Mick,

I'm glad you made it! After you begin to see the powerful tools, training, and remarkable opportunities available here, I know you will be glad also.

Beyond giving you everything you need to succeed as an affiliate in your area of interest, you can also promote Wealthy Affiliate as an affiliate:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/share

With a strong recurring commission structure, and a product that people love, this is a dream affiliate program that you now have access to as a Starter Member.

Although it is worth noting that the commissions are double for Premium Members, so the premium upgrade is worth considering for that reason alone if you decide to pursue this aspect of Wealthy Affiliate. To learn more, click the black "Affiliate Bootcamp" button at the top left of this page.

If you are new to making money online, it will take you awhile to fully appreciate everything that Wealthy Affiliate has to offer. If you have been struggling to get things working with your online business, then be prepared for some "light bulb moments" as you go through the training and begin to understand how the Wealthy Affiliate platform can accelerate your results.

I will follow up with you in a few days to give you a concrete example of an excellent advanced strategy that is possible here at Wealthy Affiliate. This is a strategy that is simply not possible anywhere else (check this page for that update in a few days).

In the meantime, I would suggest you take the following 3 steps:

1. Complete your profile with a brief description of your goals, and of course with a nice photo of your smiling face! This makes a huge difference when interacting with the community here.

2. For a quick look at how easy it is to setup your first website (which is the basis for any online business), I highly recommend you take a look at Kyle's excellent video on creating your first website right here within Wealthy Affiliate in under 30 seconds (yes, this really is possible!): 3. Complete the free training lessons and videos to get started with your first niche website. Just click on the green "Get Started Here" button on the top left side of the page.

The fastest way to get your questions answered is to take advantage of the live chat and the question area at the bottom of each training module. There are many members here willing to help out.

These ways are faster (than asking an individual person) because you are more likely to connect with people that are actually online here at WA at the same time you are asking your questions.

Even before asking however, the search bar at the top of every page in Wealthy Affiliate is great for finding answers. That is what I use the most. WA has been in business for over 10 years, so almost any question you can think of has been asked and answered already. The search bar is great for finding those answers,

Have fun in your first few days at Wealthy Affiliate!

Brad
