Remember Staying focus and being consistent is key to building a successful business, my prayer is that you accomplish these both so that you can build a successful business from the comfort of your home, and help others to do the same. Peace!

hi, thanks for following me. 26 years of human resource.... Wow!!!. Online marketing is not one of my strong points and that is why i chose to jump out of my boat of comfort zone.
i can see you joined WA since July so i believe you have gone ahead and would be able to help people like me who just upgraded to premium today. Again,sharing ideas can give birth to a solid foundation for predictable success!!!.

Stepping out of that comfort zone, for sure. Walking through the FEAR!...At least, it is for me. Computer dinosaur, and hard to teach new tricks! LOL

Thanks for following me. I admire the work you have done. I am a legal word processor. I have been here at WA for one month now, and I have learned so much. I've always wanted to teach, but like Moses, I am slow of tongue. But if I put my mind to it, I can write like the devil.

I am following you back. You have accomplished a lot since July 2017.

Wishing you much success.

Could you possibly help me out with a couple of questions I have? One, what is a site identity number-find it where? Two, is it possible to set up a web site as an affiliate to Wealthy Affiliates? Kind of a closing sales page before they get here. Thanks Bunches!
Reply
yclayton Premium
As far as the site identity, this link may be helpful... If you want to set up your site to focus on WA, follow the Boot camp training on the left of the screen. I didn't do that training since I have a niche. I followed the Certification Training.

I hope this info is helpful.

Thanks for following Yvette. Looks like we are both from a similar industry! I'm also in HR in a way, mainly in leadership development, training, culture and engagement and change. I haven't been a HR generalist as such and wouldn't know much about it ! I can tell you'd be a great speaker - you seem to have that feel about you :) Thanks again for connecting

Hi Yvette and thank you for following me! I started to follow you as well. I have a feeling that your skills are a big asset in the online/affiliate marketing world too. Because there is so much to learn and you have to be persistent, it helps if you have good organizational skills. Teaching and speaking experience helps a lot in creating helpful articles, videos, etc. to your website audience.

Have a great weekend and all the best to you! :)

Hello Yvette and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you will perhaps have come to realize that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 370 blogs I have published within WA.

Good day Yvette
Thank you for following me. You have a very professional Biography, funny enough I just handed in my resignation. I have an opportunity with another retailer in the town I live, so I wont be away from home so much and the salary / benefits are better.
I have however set myself a goal to leave corporate retail in a years time and just do online marketing, so I have a year to set myself up, can't wait

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.

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

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, 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. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

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! :)
Reply
yclayton Premium
Thank you so much for that. I have decided my niche - weight loss. I am very familiar with it since I, myself, have been on the journey (and still am). But I have incorporated some things into my life that have made me feel great. I hope to help others in their journey as well. Any thoughts?
Reply
Kyle Premium
I would narrow down your concept a little bit here.

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)
Reply
yclayton Premium
Thank you. Since I originally asked you that question, I decided to be more specific and go with weight loss for females over 50. That is something that hits home for me personally that I can truly relate with. Any additional thoughts?

Sure, you can definitely head in that direction. :)

Yvette Welcome to the incredible world of Wealthy Affiliate. The information here may seem overwhelming at times, but follow the path to success. Two crucial trainings that will build the foundation for your success are the Getting Started and then the Affiliate Bootcamp. Follow the path that has been used by others to success and you will succeed.
The second bit of advice is begin to work on your network of connections. Follow people as they follow you. Your network will prove to be a most valuable resource and will come to your aid along the way. So I have followed you to watch your progress, why not follow me in return?
Here is to your SUCCESS within Wealthy Affiliate, and everything that is offered here for you. -Dr. Carl Welliver

Hey Yvette!
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.
