Q: I’ve got my site promoting Wealthy Affiliate up and running. Now I want to start a new site regarding a different niche. should I go through a Wealthy Affiliate review of training again? If so should I go through the boot camp or the entrepreneur one.
When Rubber Meets Road
Everyone has a dream, a vision, a goal.
Often that involves becoming successful. However, the word successful can certainly mean different things to different people depending on where they are in life.
For a 9 month, pregnant woman, success is all about delivery.
For an executive being promoted, success is all about position.
And for those seeking to break into the world of how to learn affiliate marketing for beginners is all about the right niche.
So, when I saw the following question arise today I knew I would need to provide an answer. It is my own personal insight on the matter but apparently, it struck a chord.
Here’s how I responded:
It depends on how experienced you are online. Also, consider how often you will be able to feed content to your new site. If your new to all this, I personally would recommend giving all you got to the one site for at least 90 days. My goal is to produce 1 new piece of content that is between 1000 and 1500 words with high impact images daily. It is not easy, especially with all my other work that demands time, but it is worth it. Also, if you are new then I certainly would go through everything again… and again… and again – until you have it down to a skilled science.
And here is a response that I received from Dave Page.
I read your comment on my phone earlier so I felt I had to come on my Mac and find it again. My friend, your comment is extremely useful and I think it will greatly benefit anyone who needs reassurance about WA, therefore I encourage you to create a blog post here within the community so we can all find it going forward.
So, without further ado that is how I am proceeding.
When Cart Drives Horse
Before I continue, I’m certain that there are those who are lost back at the words Wealthy Affiliate (WA) and what they mean. I’d like to clear that up before continuing.
Do you have a dream of making a living with affiliate marketing online business? I do.
And, I have.
Problem is that my living involves clients and I want to move away from that concept. I want to move into a world where I can provide my absolute best, go do something else and finally come back to see that my bank account has grown.
A world where that is 100% possible is affiliate marketing.
The problem is that there is so much misinformation available that just finding a road map to success can be a daunting task. Not to mention the expensive of training that is involved in the process.
I’ve literally spent thousands on learning affiliate marketing without results. It has been frustrating, but I haven’t given up.
For me, WA has been the real game changer. I’m already very experienced in the world of online marketing. I just didn’t have someone taking me by the hand and providing a clear-cut pathway to becoming a successful Affiliate Marketer. That all changed when I discovered the WA difference.
When Stories Collide
I’ve gone through all the training and guarantee that everything Kyle shares is rock solid. Yeah, I probably would have spent some time building more value into WordPress categories but other than that if you are wanting to break into affiliate marketing then WA is the place you need to hang out.
This site you are viewing was created 100% by following all the advice given. Your reading this article because of what I learned at WA as it relates to affiliate marketing.
So now, let’s return to answer the question that got me rolling.
Now I want to start a new site regarding a different niche. should I go through the whole training again? If so should I go through the boot camp or the entrepreneur one.
As I see it there are 3 points I would like to cover.
- When should a new niche begin?
- How much training is too much training?
- Which training should I follow? (Bootcamp or Entrepreneur)
Let’s look at each of these points as we continue.
When Should a New Niche Begin
For some, we would first need to understand what a niche is and is not. I cover that question in this article.
One of the biggest problems with the Internet is found in the word expectations. You have a site built and it is live on the Web. Perhaps it is even indexed. That is a job well done and it is time to start a new project.
Unfortunately, in my opinion, it hasn’t even started yet. To gain a strong footing on the Web in any direction takes time, devotion and patients. Sure, it would be nice to have 25 Websites all working for you out on the Web?
Or would it?
That means 25 different projects that are going to be demanding your time and attention on a regular basis. In many ways, it is far better to focus on one till it picks up momentum and then move onto the others accordingly.
While a new niche in affiliate marketing should begin whenever you are ready, it is crucial to make sure that you are ready before deciding that you are ready. Not doing so can lead to information overload, frustration, discouragement and your decision to abandon pursuits toward becoming an Affiliate Marketer.
How Much Training Is Too Much Training?
I wish I knew this answer.
I suppose to much training is receiving so much that you choose not to pursue your dreams or passions any further with affiliate marketing.
Typically, that is not the reason that training is created. It is designed for your success. I have spent thousands on training without achieving the desired results. This does not mean that the training had no value, but rather the monetary value was not realized by my endeavors.
Like I said before, I already know this stuff. In fact, can and have taught it to others. They achieved success and I didn’t.
I believe that the answer to that question is where WA makes up the difference.
Yes, the other courses taught about the fundamentals.
Yes, the other courses outlined a workable process.
Yes, the other courses (some) were full of integrity and value.
They just didn’t have a workable structured game plan that would take me step by step through the process in-order to arrive at a successful conclusion. That is where they fell short and I failed.
So, how much training is too much training?
Imagine myself, I’ve been in this industry since the early 90’s. That’s probably longer than many here have been alive. However, when I found WA my wife made me commit to one thing before joining.
That one thing was that I would abide by the WA game plan exclusively. It makes sense. I agreed to not only do that but also read every word, watch every video and pretend that I knew nothing. I kept my promise about 95% so far and am already seeing rich dividends from doing so.
My recommendation is for everyone that is serious about seeing their own success blossom to do the same. No matter if you bring a great amount of experience to the table or not. You’re paying hard earned cash to be involved with WA, doesn’t it make sense that you give them the respect and honor of following what they are saying?
Which Training Should I Follow? (Bootcamp or Entrepreneur)
In WA there are two roads that you can take.
One teaches you how to make money as an affiliate of WA while the other is the root basic stuff you need to know in-order to succeed as an Affiliate Marketer.
No matter what niche you are choosing it is essential to understand the fundamentals, so that is an obvious option to pursue. However, if you are learning about WA why not do so by following their affiliate marketing advice and making money from your education along the way?
That’s what I am doing.
My first blog with WA is about affiliate marketing with a focus toward WA.
Once I start seeing revenue from that direction I will branch out into other niches. However, I figure if I’m here learning from WA it only makes sense to start there and grow forward.
Either way, you need to decide on your own road to travel with Wealthy Affiliate and enjoy the process in motion.
Perhaps Robert Frost said it best in his poem of Two Roads which is just to the right. Enjoy.
