Congratulations! You Have Just Begun Your Online Earning Journey!

I just wanted to reach out and thank you for wanting to become a Super Affiliate Online. I really look forward to working with you in the year ahead. 

First things first though, some housekeeping. The Super Affiliate agenda is rigorous and it is going to set out to push your limits, but it will do so in a way where you are going to truly be advancing your skill-set and proficiency within the online world. 

Each and every SUPER AFFILIATE POST  to you will include some new tasks, some new education and general website/business development skill sets.

There are going to be some things that you NEED at the outset of this, that you should plan to get in place over the next week. 

(1) Your OWN Brandable Domain. You want to have a domain of your own, ideally a .com domain. If you have an existing site already and it is a brand that you like, that is fine, you can use that. You may already have an established bootcamp site, and that is great as well. 

If you don’t have a domain or you want to start FRESH, I recommend you go grab one.

For the $13.99 it costs for a domain, this is going to be the starting point of your personal/company brand and it is going to be integral moving forward. 

You can purchase your domains directly here through WA and they come with EVERYTHING (including whois privacy, email, etc…which are upsells elsewhere). Your domain will be ready to go within minutes as well upon purchasing.

Here is a video you can watch on choosing a brandable domain: Choosing & Buying a Brandable Domain NameIf your existing site is on a .siterubix.com domain, you can move it over to your new domain with efficiency simply. 

(2) Commitment for a year. I need your honest commitment to your business over the year ahead. There are going to be ups and downs, exciting times, and perhaps times where you want to give up. 

That is business, that is my everyday life, but that is what MOST people are not willing to do. If you do, you will immediately have a competitive advantage over the 90% of people that just want success NOW out there. That is the reality. 

People that segment and give their success time limits, rarely ever achieve it. That is something I have seen over the years and giving yourself minimum of a year of effort is such a small fragment of time in the scheme of things…but a time allotment that can truly allow you to have breakthroughs in your business. 

(3) Ability to Write (that is, communicate). We all can write. Some people feel as though they are not writers, and that is fine….and in the next breath send me a 500 word message explaining why they cannot write. That was half an article! LOL

So your goal is not to become a writer, but to remain a communicator and this is something you do every day. 

(4) Ability to research. You are going to be building out your business on a daily basis, yes, taking days off is fine, but when you become engaged in your business every day you are constantly thinking about things to improve it. 

Make your every day a day in which you can think of ideas, perhaps new keywords, marketing angles, way to promote/help others, etc. Constant research and thought are going to be critical elements to creating a successful business. YOU are your business, just remember that.

(5) Perhaps an autoresponder (down the road as you start getting traffic). This is not a requirement now, but down the road we will likely be getting into building a list. Just a heads up, this could be 6 months from now, 9 months from now. The first focus is going to be getting your “brand” in good shape, getting a solid base of content, and working to establish consistent traffic (and revenue). 

Here is my favourite START FREE AUTORESPONDER

—-

I also want to mention that although you will be working independently on creating your own respective successful business, the Wealthy Affiliate Platform has over 1.4 Million Online Entrepreneurs to help you but that doesn’t mean you are not going to have my personal attention throughout. 

Record and keep track of your journey with blog posts alongside monthly goals and criteria set out. This will give you a way to share successes and failures (as we can all learn from one another) and monitor your progress.

This is a pilot program and it may spin off into some other really cool projects, but my goal in the year ahead is to truly help you create and carve yourself out as an authority in this industry. 

——————————
First week tasks:

Task 1: Get your own domain
Task 2: Get through Bootcamp phase 1
Task 3: Complete all the required pages/posts in phase 1 (about me post, privacy policy page, review). 

OR

If you already have your website established, your goal is going to be to create TWO keyword rich posts on your website if you have already completed phase one (could be on any topic).

——————————

When you are ready to go, I want you to head over to the following thread and let me know: “I AM READY TO ROCK  EASY-MONEYS!” within the comments. Also, if you have any comments this week, questions about your domain name/brand, I want you to leave them ON MY PROFILE PAGE.

I can’t wait to see where you are going to take your business in the year ahead and I really look forward to seeing you and your business evolve. This is going to be lots of fun!


It’s Live! First Month Super Affiliate Training!

I hope you are doing well and you have had a fun (and motivating) week thus far within the Super Affiliate Challenge. 

I am going to start every month of training moving forward with an accountability breakdown where you can look inward and be realistic about your accomplishments over the past month.

Since it has only been a week, and the fact that there hasn’t been too many requirements, there are just going to be a few things to check off this list. So the initial housekeeping tasks that I mentioned to you last week were to:

***Get a Brandable .com Domain.
***Go through and complete phase 1 of Bootcamp
***For those of you that had existing sites, publishing 2 keyword rich articles on your website. For those of you that are new, drop a link to your About Me, Privacy Policy, and Review. 

These were your tasks required in the first week (actually a week and a half). I hope you had a productive first week and you didn’t run into too many major issues. 🙂

The Format Moving Forward
————————————-

I am going to be taking a unique approach with the Super Affiliate training. Each and every month for the next 11 months I am going to be giving you an entire MONTH of training, all at once. This will also include all of the associated tasks for that given month. 

I feel that this is a great way to get a bird’s eye view of your monthly goals, as well as things that you are accomplishing. 

This is going to be quite a rigorous run of training, but it is going to be absolutely achievable by each and everyone one of you. 

I am going to be providing adequate training to complete the tasks as well as a centralized location where you can ask questions, get help, see others progress and what they are asking, and to network and work as a group to truly move your website/business in the best direction possible. 

But I also want you to remain very flexible. The last thing I am trying to create is a “monkey see monkey do” sort of environment. No one site is the same, no person is the same, no writing style is the same, and no theme and website design will be the same. That is OK. 

It’s going to be lots of fun. It’s going to also lead you to great achievement and the creation of your own brand and authority website. We are all going to be asking questions, getting answers and working out new problems and confusion along the way. That is purely part of the process of building an online business. 🙂


Month 1: Crafting Your Website Design & Establishing Your Brand


So, without further adieu, here is the first month training (bookmark this link).

 Month 1: Crafting Your Website Design & Establishing Your BrandThis month we are going to be covering:

**Website framework based on your theme
**Design
**Graphics and imagery
**Content
**Idea development
**Establishing a solid base of content

Before you build a skyscraper, you must first have a solid foundation. That is why our goal in the first month is to create this solid foundation/brand and something that you can build off of as you do move forward. 

If you are working with an existing website in this challenge and one that is established, this month’s training is going to grant you the opportunity to really clean things up and set yourself up with the idea of becoming a “brand” as you move forward.

We are not building websites, we are building businesses, we are building brands, and it is only a matter of time before you become an authority in this business. If you approach things in that manner, you are going to have a very bright future ahead of you. Whether it takes 6 months, a year or a few years to truly feel this authority will vary, but it absolutely can happen.

If you approach things in that manner, you are going to have a very bright future ahead of you. Whether it takes 6 months, a year or a few years to truly feel this authority will vary, but it absolutely can happen.

Well here it is, Month 2 of the challenge. I hope you have thoroughly enjoyed the first months tasks and ultimately what you have learned in the past month. 

I have seen some people make some incredible progress in just a short 30 days, far more than I ever made when I started out within the online world and I have no doubt there are going to be many folks from the challenge that will be sitting with us down in Las Vegas next year!

It takes hard work though. That is something that I sense a lot of you are realizing, but when that becomes “habit’ in your day to day activities, it is going to become totally natural. You will also become much more efficient with everything that you are doing. 

What may have taken you 30 minutes to do this month, may take you 15 next month, and down the road it may take 5 minutes. That is just how it works. 

At one point in time, I knew nothing about the Internet. I didn’t know how to write all that well. My marketing skills were completely raw. I didn’t know how to build a site. 

Now all of these are second nature, I don’t have to think about them and as I am going to be revealing this month, there are also some processes that I naturally do (that I am going to be sharing with you), that I know can truly amplify your content production and make this month the most efficient one yet. 

This month is going to be all about content efficiency, engagement, design, and then intent. Basically we are going to be fulfilling the process of being ‘productive’ but doing so in a way that has a unique attention to detail with the actual content design, the actual reader of your content, and of course monetizing your traffic (conversions). 

These are all critical and foundational building blocks to any successful authority website. If you can implement these and make them “habit” (a word I want to emphasize), you are going to be building GREAT traits that will allow you to scale your business with maximum efficiency.

If there are BREAKS IN THE CHAIN, so to speak, an issue anywhere with your flow of relevance between your pages and “pitches” , then you are going to be bleeding a lot of potential revenue through time. I see this happening with regularity to some really successful affiliate marketers and they end up having to go back into their content and FIXING all sorts of things after the fact. This is time consuming and awkward and we definitely don’t want this to happen to you. If you do things right from the outset, it will save you a ton of time down the road. 

So I am going to be starting you off on the RIGHT foot in the early stages of your site and in this Months training and tasks we are really going to be focusing on this. 

So without further jabber, go check out this months training. Month 2: Content Efficiency, Engagement, Design, and IntentLike last month, it would be best if you kept all of your questions for the comment thread within the actual training. I get a VERY high volume of PM’s per day, and I would prefer to centralize my support for the challenge so that everyone can learn from others questions. I believe it is the most effective “group share” way of learning (and we all become better marketers as a result).

Of course if there is something dire and private, feel free to drop me a PM.

Wishing you an amazing MONTH 2 ahead. You are doing incredible thus far and you should be proud of your accomplishments. The fun is just starting!


Month 3 is officially here, and before we get rolling into this month’s game plan I first want to congratulate you on your progress thus far!

You are doing an amazing job and do realize the time and effort you put into your business, will truly pay off, not always immediately, but down the road and often times forever.

To access this training go here: Month 3: Social. Imagery. Purpose.At this point you have a really good framework for your business and a foundation that you can build on. This is exciting. It is usually around the 3-4 month mark that you really start to see some breakthroughs in search engines like Google/Yahoo/Bing with your content, traffic, and then ultimately an opportunity to generate revenue. The snowball (your business) is officially rolling! 

OK, onto this month’s training. I have labeled this month’s training Social. Imagery. Purpose.

**The first is going to be Social…

We are going to dip our feet into the vast social world…without wasting too much time and energy on the WRONG things. That is something I truly want you to be careful about.

As much as social can be a huge opportunity and something that you can leverage with your website/business, it can also serve as a significant “time trap”.

We are also going to be covering which social networks you should focus on, and why? Also, how to leverage social networks in the most efficient way to benefit your business, your website getting indexed, and ranked.

**Next, we will be moving into proper linking strategies… 

How and where you utilize links, in particular affiliate links on your website will have a profound impact on your results. The idea is, once you start getting traffic to your website, your immediate focus becomes how to monetize that traffic.

But how? What are the best ways to promote products/services on your website, and what are the different types and formats of links that you should be using. Also, there is a really powerful “custom homepage” platform that I am going to be showing you that is really useful for maximizing the relevance between the WA promotions on your website, and when people actually click-through to WealthyAffiliate.com.

**Then Imagery…

I really want to focus on how to advance the beauty, brand and how to incorporating practical and useful “image based” conversion items into your site. This is going to be very useful to know in the early stages of your website, in particular as you want to build it out “right” the first time. It is much easier to incorporate these image elements and become acquainted with them now, then to try to start incorporating them down the road. 

I am going to be covering banner creation, use of infographics, graphs, charts and header images. Lots of useful strategies and new tools I think you will find useful.

**Then WA Blog Posts…

There is benefit to posting at WA, more than most people think. With each and every blog post you create here at WA, you have a great deal of ranking and financial opportunity. I am going to be discussing this, why it is important to avoid click-bait and also how to create keyword rich, relevant blog posts.

And then a few other little tid bits, and we are going to be rocking and rolling for Month 3 of the Super Affiliate Challenge.

—–

It is important that you keep your foot on the pedal, keep building out content, and keep focusing on establishing your business into a long term and sustainable brand. If you do, your success will become imminent over time and you are going to establish yourself into a highly regarded, respected affiliate marketer! 

As always, if you have any questions or comments, leave them within the Super Affiliate Challenge training. This is a social project, I am in there regularly helping, and fellow members will definitely be there to support you as well (and of course you can offer others help). 

Again, here is the this months training: Month 3: Social. Imagery. Purpose.Here’s to another successful and awesome month ahead!

I hope you have been doing well and you are truly enjoying the Super Affiliate Challenge process. Looking around, I am really proud to see so many folks making such great progress. 

Many partakers in this challenge are starting to get great rankings in Google, Yahoo and Bing. I am also seeing stories about social traction, traffic, and of course as a result there are several folks that are starting to generate consistent sales and revenue!

If you haven’t, that is fine as well. 

It is usually around month 3-4 (or just beyond) that you will start getting some traction in search engines. As we move forward, we are also going to be covering many others sources of traffic as well, but at the core of your business you want to have some fundamentally sound “SEO Roots”. This can drive your business for many years to come. 

So keep at it, keep pushing forward, and keep motivated. The natural hurdles are always going to be there, but at this point you have overcome many of them and you are set up nicely for the year ahead.

This week we are going to be focusing more on search engines and building a relationship with them through Webmaster Tools. Additionally, around this point in your business you should have Google Analytics set-up so you can start getting a good grasp of how much traffic you are getting.

Rankings are important and there are BILLIONS of keywords out there within this niche alone that you can leverage. 

As we move forward, the content side of your business is going to remain a focus and this month this will remain consistent with past months. Ideally 2-3 posts per week is good, if you have time for more, then more is better.

One thing I don’t want you to do is stress if you have a month where you don’t write as much as you would have liked to. Start with a fresh head and a fresh writing plan every month, set some ambitious goals, and then work towards them. Not every month is the same, stuff comes up in our lives that takes us away from our business, and this is certainly not something that you should fret about.

But always look forward, don’t dwell on the past week or month if you hit a few hurdles. The future can and will always be brighter if you push forward, work hard, and stay motivated. 


Month 4: Honing in on Your Traffic & Rankings

 Month 4: Honing in on Your Traffic & Rankings.As with past months, please try to avoid replying to me directly with questions related to this month’s training (if possible). Keep them within the designated comments area, which I am very active within as well as other members. If you need help or have questions, there is LOTS of help there.

Keep up the great work!

I hope you are having an amazing Online Earning Journey thus far. I have been working hard on getting the materials ready for Month 5 and we are going to be stepping deep in the mind of “customers” and how to maximize conversions through proper alignment of your marketing. This will be released on Tuesday, June 19th…so stay tuned.

In the meantime, I wanted to start a discussion on something that is relevant to all of us. Fatigue.

As we work on our websites and online businesses, we experience fatigue. It’s natural. And it’s entirely OK. In saying this, there are a lot of things that we can do that can lead to you becoming more motivated, more engaged, and more productive and they are simple to implement into your day to day activities.

So please take a second and read about my 6 strategies for changing the direction of “business fatigue”. How Do I Sustain Motivation in Business Over Time?I have also left some questions for you there, it would be awesome if you took a moment and chimed in! Wishing you an amazing weekend ahead and keep an eye out for the Month 5 training release

I hope you are having an amazing June thus far and we are a day away from Summer (here on the west coast of Canada anyways)! Summer is when most people tend to slack in their businesses and I just want to make sure you don’t fall into this trap. 

One thing we have learned over the years is that slacking off in the summer will always lead to a slow winter in your business as there is always a 3-6 month period where your efforts (or lack thereof) take to incubate. So work hard through the summer, and get ready for a awesome fall and winter in terms of your business growth! 

Take a break, have fun, just don’t forget about your business! 🙂


Month 5: Masterful Marketing

I also wanted to mention, as awaited, the Month 5 training is ready. This month we are going to be stepping into the “marketing” world and uncovering some of the best practices for customer comprehension and as a result, how to appropriately deliver your content in a way that maximizes conversions/success in your business.

Conversions are far less about “testing”, and far more about the way you communicate and communication with your audience (and the hot buttons you touch on). As well, relevance will play a very critical role in conversions and this is something that we are going to be covering in detail. 

Anyways, let’s jump right into things. Here is a link to this months “Month 5: Masterful Marketing” training: Month 5: Masterful MarketingAs with past month’s training, if you have any questions in respect to the material leave them within the actual training comments (to prevent my computer from exploding by getting overwhelmed with PM’s lol).

I really hope you enjoy the Month 5 training. Work hard, continue taking action, and you are going to see results from your efforts! 🙂


Month 6: Amplifying Traffic With Video Marketing

I hope you are having an amazing Super Affiliate Journey thus far.

This month we are going to continue down the path of content, but we are going to be leveraging a different set of mediums to publish the content, and we are going to also be getting our hands dirty with some video devleopment. 

I know for many, the idea of creating a video is very scary. Many of us would rather stick to text/image based content, and that is fine. If that is your forte, then that is your forte. On the other hand, there are many that would love to make video their focal point and are naturals and delivering content through video. That is great too. 

Some like to do both (like myself), and create text/image based content, as well as mix in some video into my campaigns. 

Regardless of your direction, I know this month is going to be insightful and valuable. I am going to be offering you some perspective on the vastness of the video marketing space, and in many cases how easy it is to produce video content that can lead to a great deal of traffic (and results).

Here is a link to this month’s training: Month 6: Amplifying Traffic With Video MarketingWe have many affiliates that focus a lot of their efforts on video and have significant campaigns churning. Like SEO and creating content that ranks, video can have the same impact not just in Youtube, but also directly in Google’s search results. This can amount to a consistent and long term source of traffic and a way to scale your existing traffic. 

So this month is the month of video. I know you are going to really enjoy it, and whether or not you make video a big component of your efforts moving forward is up to you. I certainly want you to be aware of the opportunity and just how capable YOU are of creating amazing, high ranking and converting video.

Here’s to a successful Month 6 of training ahead

I just want to do a little house keeping and remind you of a few things before we get rolling into this months training. 

The Wealthy Affiliate Referral Commissions Program requires 300 Premium Sales Memberships from the 1st day of the year to the last.

Just an FYI, the Vegas Incentive program is usually relaunched to 100 sales by September so aim for the incentive trip – it’s well worth it!

****100 Sales to Vegas, Incentive Relaunched!!****
Dates: September 1st, 2019 – December 31st, 2019

We are doing something special for you. We realize that some people start late in the year with their affiliate promotions, so we like to offer EVERYONE a way to make the fully paid, all inclusive Super Affiliate Conference in Vegas. If you can make 100 Premium referrals between September 1, 2019 and the end of the year, you are going to be invited to our exclusive annual conference (which is usually in late Jan or early Feb 2020)!

You can check out my last year’s post detailing this incentive: Vegas 2019 – You are Only 100 Sales Away!****Black Friday 2018****
Dates: November 23rd, 2018 (Friday) – November 26th, 2018 (Monday)

This is our biggest event every year for affiliates and one thing I recommend to affiliates is to start planning now. Get your campaigns in order come end of October, because Black Friday creeps up quickly and you want to be ready.

This year we are going to be offering the $299 price point again ($130 commissions to affiliates), along with some other awesome bonuses/goodies. This works out to less than $25 per month and from past years, I can tell you that Affiliates rake it on on Black Friday because the offer is such an exciting one for exciting, and prospective customers.

I recommend getting a few things in order in advance.

#1: A blog post for your website to push this
#2: Any social media/PPC campaigns spec’d out
#3: If you have an email list, get a launch sequence ready to go (I recommend 8-10 emails)
#4: A personal bonus that you can offer people to join. Could be as simple as bundling some live classes or powerful posts within WA. 

I will be reminding you all about this next month as well. 

——

Anyways, on to this months training. This month I decided to do something totally unique and dip into a topic I rarely put much emphasis on, but one that is important. The side of business and creating success that NOBODY tells you about. 

The reason I have the tendency to avoid this topic is because there is so much BS in the industry surrounding “mindset” strategies. Thinking something will happen, will not make it happen. No matter how hard you think!!!

So fundamentally, working hard should come before mindset (whatever that means). If you are willing to “grind”, you have an upperhand on most of your competition out there, add some mindset self analysis to the mix, you are going to set yourself up for longevity and success online.

The approach I took some effort. I took the main problem areas I have had over the years and I know others have. I then looked inward to try to comprehend some things that I have done that lead to miserable failure, and the things that I did that helped me overcome certain mindset hurdles.

Now in saying this, I am not perfect. Life is a learning experience, business is a life long learning experience, so everything I do may not be the perfect way. Surely it has helped though. 

So let’s get right into things…

****MONTH 7: The Business Stuff Nobody Tells You.****

 Month 7: The Business Stuff Nobody Tells YouI am hoping that you will find my mindset failures and successes insightly and you will be able to take practical strategies that you will be able to apply to your day to day activities.


I hope you are having a wonderful Super Affiliate Online Journey! The month of pumpkins, candy and costumes. BTW, those are all huge niches but none are as big and as full of opportunity as the one you are working within. 

In fact, of the 4 BILLION people on the Internet, most of them would absolutely love to create a business doing something they love. That is what the Internet affords us all the opportunity of. And this is the audience that you are currently aiming to engage and build off of.

I remember a few years back in Vegas at the annual Super Affiliate Conference walking around with one of the attendees. Vegas was bustling, there must have been 100,000 people walking the strip. All had enough money to travel to Vegas, and likely were blowing $100’s if not $1,000’s while they were there.

All of these people would LOVE to create a business online,they would love the services at WA, it was just a matter of connecting with them. That is the opportunity I brought up to this one affiliate that is before us all. Imagine if you could get just 1% of these people to sign up (on the Vegas strip alone), that would equate to more than most people make a year…and it is recurring revenue to boot.

What I am getting at here, is thinking big. Next time you are at a performance or a sports event, or in a big city with crowds, realize that ALL of these people are your potential customers and audience. It is just a matter of connecting with them in a way that is relevant, and that makes sense. This is what you can do with your online marketing campaigns, but instead of having access to 100,000 people, you have access to 4 BILLION people. 

I just want to give you some numbers here, based on years of data to give you the true income potential of your WA income. If you can sustain the following for 2 years, you can expect these types of numbers:

$160,000 per year, 3.0 sales per day
$320,000 per year, 6.0 sales per day)
$640,000 per year, 12.0 sales per day

These are completely realistic. So you have a football field of people, or a city full of millions of people, or an Internet with 4 billion people. If you can get 3 of these people to go Premium each day, you will have a recurring income of $160,000 per year in 2 years. If you can make 12 sales per day, you are looking at $640,000 in recurring annual income.

This is the reality of what YOU can achieve, with effort, dedication and persistence. Behind the scenes, we are only going to continue to improve the service, adding new platforms, and extending our lead in every way over the rest of the competition/industry. 2018 and 2019 will be no different!

How much time would you dedicate to your business to achieve these sorts of numbers? How many years would you give yourself to achieve this? Those are things that you need to consider as you build out your business and when you are quantifying your time/value return. It may not feel like big things are happening in 3-6 months, but once the snowball gets moving it can lead to some truly incredible things.

OK, I digress. I just wanted to give you some perspective here as to the opportunity before you.

So this month, what is the core focus?

COPYWRITING.

We are all creating content at this point, and now is the time that I really want to get the thought process rolling in terms of how you build your content, how you approach your audience, and how you ‘market’ to your audience.

How you write and how integrate your promotions into your website will have a huge bearing on whether you convert, or you don’t. It will also have a profound impact on whether or not you are able to build a trust-based relationship with your audience..what I believe to be the most instrumental component of any businesses long term success. 

I will be discussing this, along with many other topics related to content and ad structure within this months training. 

So without further adieu, I introduce the Month 8 training. It’s going to be another busy one, but a fun one (and hopefully a very educational one).

MONTH 8: Advanced Copywriting Techniques

 Month 8: CopywritingAs always, chime into the actual training comments if you have any questions as you move forward. I hope you have an amazing month ahead!


I just wanted to get in touch and let you know the plans for the Super Affiliate Challenge. We left off in Month 8 with copywriting back in November. Since that training was rolled out, I am sure a lot has gone on with you and your business. 

After some discussion with a several folks in the challenge, there is a lot of excitement around the idea of carrying through the entire 12 months of training right away. So, I am going do be moving forward through months 9, 10, 11, 12 and I have some really exciting stuff slated that will absolutely help you take your WA business to the next level in 2019. 

I have decided on dates for Month 9. The topic of month 9 is going to be “ Product Reviews” and it will be released on February, 19th. It will be the same format as past months, with a lot of new information and insights and a full hour supporting video to walk through some of the more detailed processes. So stay tuned for that!

We have a lot of NEW platforms on the verge of being released, some of the biggest ever for affiliates. We also have recently rolled out a new pricing model, so you can promote the “yearly” membership right away (pays $175 commissions), and members now have the option of a 6 month membership (which pays $108 commissions). This is a big deal and this has been leading to a quickly increasing value per sale. 

Here is the blog post where I discuss the new price points, including the logic behind the decision making. New Order Page at Wealthy Affiliate, New Payment Options!Feel free to chime in if you have any questions, anything to add, or any feedback. 

This is also opening the doors to the PPC (Pay Per Click) world and I am going to covering some PPC techniques and strategies in the later months of the SAC training. Some breakthrough stuff. It only takes a few yearlies per day to really have a lucrative (6 figure) income stream. 😉

I apologize for the extended break. I hope you had an amazing holidays and I know that with what we have going on behind the scenes and some of the upcoming months of training, you are going to be well equipped for your most successful year yet online! 

So leading up to Feb 17th, 2019 (when I release Month 9 of the training), I recommend that you continue working on the content build out of your website. You should be capable of publishing 8-12 keyword rich posts minimum by then, so make that your goal and you will have a great deal of momentum going into Month 9. 


This month is going to be all about reviews and how to leverage reviews in your business.

But a big component of reviews, is how to find the actual products/services in our respective industry to review.

So leading into this month (which will be released in the next day or two), I wanted to open up a conversation and one that will be really valuable. I want this to be a group discussion, you can share any insights you have into finding products/services to review, strategies you use, or questions that you have about the overall research process.

Have a read and chime into the following thread: How do you find products or services to review?Looking forward to this month, we have an exciting one ahead! I think you are going to find that many of the things discussed are “new” and very insightful into the process of creating awesome reviews, ones that truly help push your website forward in a positive and authoritative direction.


February has arrived and gone, and we are just coming out of our biggest Wealthy Affiliate Incentive Las Vegas Event ever. As always it was an amazing time and it was exciting to share our plans for the year ahead, get group feedback, affirmation, and in some cases we put certain projects aside to focus on those that were deemed “higher priority’. It is going to be an action packed year ahead here at WA. 

Behind the scenes, our team has been working tirelessly on several significant projects, some that are soon to be released. In fact, we are just a month or so away from launching a brand new platform here at WA that is going to further cement WA as THE affiliate marketing platform/community online. 

Not to mention a breakthrough platform that is going to literally change the game for all affiliates here at WA. We have some things that are going to truly take your conversions to the next level and we are planning to hand over more control to you so you can focus on your conversion cycle. You know your audience best, and we want you to explore that very idea. 

We also have some significant technology/framework innovations taking place within our hosting environment that are going to be available to all members very soon. Not to mention improvements to other platforms we are working on including SiteFeedback & SiteContent to name a few. These are going to get some design updates, along with some new features!

And these are near term projects.

Our goal has and will always be to give members here the BEST available service online, and this only happens if we constantly keep our foot on the pedal. We keep working hard, we keep taking your feedback and the community feedback and improving our service, and we push hard to implement some of the more complex ideas we have had over the years.

The result of a better service, is one that converts better. One that is easier to promote, and compared to the other competing products/services in the industry, it makes it very easy for you to point out the real benefits of being a member within WA. 

This takes me to product reviews. Surely there are a lot of great digital software products, services, and useful tools in the industry. I use several on a day to day basis, outside of just WA, but there are 10,000’s of products and services out there that are in a relevant space to that of WA. Some are great products, while some just don’t meet the quality criteria in comparison to others in the industry.

That is the reality of any industry though. You have some GREAT products, and some not so great ones. As a marketer and as you establish yourself as an authority in the industry, you should be reviewing products/services. This helps you establish your credibility and of course on the promotional side of things, ANYTHING that you recommend on your website should have a thorough review to go along side it. 

On an authority/expertise side of things, you typically help people by reviewing a wide assortment of products on your website. There are some “great” skis in the ski world, some that certainly don’t meet the criteria. There are some that are overpriced, there are some that fall apart, some with no warranty, and some that are not created by a reputable company.

The same goes with the affiliate marketing/internet marketing industry. 

Consumers need and want to know this sort of thing before they buy. Many of been scammed in the past by one of the unscrupulous companies in the industry, many are likely using really great services, some perhaps using mediocre services and looking for the upgrade. Some are looking into an opportunity aiming to determine the legitimacy. 

Regardless the frame of mind and the situation, you can help. That is your job as an authority and as with other channels of keywords, reviews can also be a good source of rankings, conversation, and even be leveraged in the paid ad world. 

At this point you have probably created at the very least ONE WA review, and likely a few other product/service reviews. This month we are really going to be focusing on the review side of your business and I am going to be helping you establish a game plan moving forward.
