Getting Started Online

Tired of trying and failing to find a REAL opportunity online?Getting Started Online

If your answer is YES, you are going to want to read this page in it’s entirety.  I am going to do my very, very best to help you out and show you how you can get started online in the next few minutes.

If you are like most, you have tried to achieve success online but you have hit a brick wall.  The pieces of the puzzle just did not fit together.   That is what happens for most people when they attempt to start a business online, they enter a state of “mass confusion”.

That is why I am here.


“I want to help you get sorted and I want to show you the PROPER path to Getting Started Online!”

Me personally, I have always been frustrated by the sheer number of scams and products out there.  In fact, I prefer to be able to try something before I have to pay for it.  That is why on my site, you will see that I only recommend products/services that have are either completely free or free to try before you pay a dime.

Think of it like Apple products.  Before you buy an iPad Mini, a Macbook or the Latest iPhone, you get to go into your local Apple Store and try out the products for no charge.  If you are happy with the product, then you will buy it.  If the product under-delivers, then you won’t even consider buying it.

That is the exact reason that I recommend that you try ONLY products that will give you an inside look and let you touch and feel their products before you give them even a PENNY of your own money.

So, here at, we only advocate try before you buy systems.

Now I want to get into the online success thing and what YOU need to achieve success within the online world.  But first, I want to ask you a question..


What is the Single Most Critical Thing That is Preventing Your From Online Success?

That is actually a questions from me (Kyle) to you.  What is the single thing that has preventing you from achieve success thus far?

Is it the fear of failure?

Are you afraid to try new things?

What are your scared of, I mean, there has to be some reason that you have not achieve success thus far?  I would love to hear why you think you have not achieved success thus far (leave a comment below).  It will help me better serve folks here on my site and help MORE people succeed at a higher rate.

Perhaps your lack of online success is purely because you have been exposed to scam after scam online, and if that is the case that REALLY SUCKS…and I am going to completely turn you around today and get you walking in the direction of ETHICAL programs online.

In fact, whether someone achieves success online and someone that does not can be narrow down to a few things…in fact, just 3.


Building a Business Online Requires Only These THREE Things…

If you have never read my story, you can read about my story online here.  I have been within the online world since 2002 (geez, I am getting old), and since then I have learned not only a lot about online success, but I have learned a very good deal about people.  People create success in many different ways, we all achieve it a bit differently from one another, but there is something that I found common with all people that earn money online.

(1) They Have Help

If you are anything like me, you get frustrated when you are stuck.  There is only one thing that is worse than being stuck.   Not having anyone to get help from when you are stuck.

So where is the best place to get help?

(2) They Have Their Own Website

No website, no success.  If you are trying to go into the online world without a website of your own, you are going to have short lived success.  VERY SHORT LIVED.

Got you worried?  Don’t be.

There is good news, building a website is now very easy.  In fact, a few minutes from now you can have your very own website up and running online.  Yes, in a few minutes from now…without spending a single cent of your own money.

Remember what I said about liking things that are free to try and free to use, websites are no different.

(3) They Learn Regularly & Practice Properly

Unfortunately, without learning something you are going to be unable to do something.  Back when I was four years old, learning to ride a bike, my parents helped me diligently get up and running.  In fact, they simplified the process by putting extra “training” wheels on my bike.   This support and guidance helped me

  • through training
  • through self motivation
  • the more you know and the more you learn, the more you do naturally.  

Think of this in perspective of basketball.  Do you think Michael Jordan thought about the mechanics of his shot every time he scored a basket?  No, he practiced so much that he was able to let his mind run free and he was able to just “score” naturally.

That is what is going to happen when you get trained, but when you Practice properly.


Getting Rolling With $0…

You are probably seeing a common theme here.

1. I like the idea of bootstrapping a business
2. I believe that in order to succeed, you need help, a website, and training

Here is what you are going to get when you sign-up for $0.

  • Personal Help & Support
    • Ability to get personal help from me (Username: Kyle)
    • Help within a community of 10,000’s of users
    • Live Chat support
    • Ongoing topical discussions
  • 2 Free Websites
    • Fully functional WordPress Sites
    • Ready to make money online
  • Training Galore
    • Video Classes
    • Tutorials
    • Courses
    • Entire Classrooms

All this for a big fat $0…notta…zilch…no credit card required.   It seems nuts and that is because it is.  You will not find training this robust anywhere and support like this anywhere.   There is a Premium option that you should consider, but that will only give you access to WAY MORE.

As shown in the screen capture below, choose the “Starter, $0 per month” option and you will instantly get access to the community after you offer your sign-up details.

  1. MARIA

    Hello Kyle, I’ve just signed-up with your site after reading about Anthony Morrison, just in a nutshell, I did get into his program, also Income Solutions, etc. anyways, I do have a landing page, niche and website also a Clickbank acct. and a Facebook Fanpage, unfortunately support doesn’t answer me anymore, so I’m stuck, can you suggest where to continue in your program to hopefully make even a $1 some day lol, Thanks and have a great day

    • Kyle

      If you want to build a proper business online and have the support when you need it, I recommend Wealthy Affiliate. You will be able to access me personally within WA and get help with your business, as well as help within 10,000’s of other community experts that are active daily.

      There is a set-up process to building a business online and it sounds as though you have been mislead or are part of a program that is confusing in nature. I recommend getting a free Starter membership at Wealthy Affiliate and you will literally be up and running with your own niche website within the first 4 lessons.

    • Kyle

      Wealthy Affiliate is very much a global community and the techniques we teach allow anyone to create a global business, regardless of your location in the world. There are members from every single country in the world at Wealthy Affiliate. The Internet is a beautiful thing, it all gives a fair opportunity, regardless of our location, to create a very successful and scalable business. We can definitely help you out with this.

    • Kyle

      That is something I can promise you Larry. Not only do you have EVERYTHING you need within WA to create, grow and scale your business(es) to any level online, you are never going to need to buy another program again online.

  2. Bigky

    Hello Kyle is very kind of you! I’m very existed to be here.

    I’m a bit afraid because i not so good in writing; but i gonna prove! One question is should i build my websites already step by step Or I should go thru 10 Lesson first? I have be read so manny time and I still not sure what should I do first ^^

    • Kyle

      Your writing is just fine and you absolutely do not need to be some sort of English professor to be very successful at “writing” content. It comes down to being able to communicate with your audience in an interesting and engaging way, no different really than sending an email to a friend or family member or dropping a comment here on my website.

      If you are going through the training at Wealthy Affiliate, I recommend that you take action on the training tasks within each lesson. You can read ahead, but those tasks are there for a reason to get you moving in the right direction with your business. Don’t just read, reading doesn’t lead to success. Action does.

    • Melissa

      It’s GREAT that you see your weakness in writing and editing!


      I suggest you enlist the help of others here within the WA community to help you, or find a long-suffering friend or relative who can help you. Personally, I understand having weaknesses, but writing isn’t a major one for me, and when I’m reading, ESPECIALLY in regards to joining in on a business opportunity or product, I am unswervingly turned away by anarchical grammar, etc. LOL

      So, it is saying something about your ability to succeed that you address this very critical area of business! CUDOS!

      BEST TO YOU! 🙂

    • Little flaws in your writing show character. These flaws also show that you are only human, which is a good thing. Even though we are communicating through a computer, it is nice to know that there really is someone on the other side. Just keep writing, you will get better at it, and your personality will shine through.

  3. James Justice

    Ok Kyle I’ve set at my computer today read several testimonies. And was amazed at the comments. Personally I think your Program is a God sent. I’ve been trying to look for something for years that would help the average or below average person out online. There’s so called wolves in sheep’s clothing online for sure. I’ve tried so many programs online and have tried a few businesses offline. And have tried some marketing platforms too that is a waste of time in my book. For Example: Traffic Exchanges, yea right you get hits to your website(s) but about the sign up s that should come from the hits? And safelists isn’t a Saint either. Clicking your butt off for nothing in return. But I’m going to take a leap of faith with Wealthy Affiliate.

    • Kyle

      So glad you are enjoying everything James and you are exactly correct. Too many people fall into the trap of thinking that you can buy “mass traffic” for cheap through paid to click networks and through traffic exchanges. They are the lowest form of traffic you could ever get to your site and I wouldn’t ever recommend these to anyone that wants to create a sensible business online.

    • Kyle

      It truly is a mine field out there on the Internet and we can absolutely get you rolling in the right direction. If you register for Wealthy Affiliate, you will have your very own niche website up and running within the first 4 lessons as well as understand the process of how to PROPERLY build a business online. No experience necessary.

      Once inside of WA, I can most definitely help you out if have any questions or need some help with your campaigns.

  4. Martin

    Hi kyle I would like to get started in wealthy affiliate but only have access to a smartphone at the present time. Is it possible to set up and run?

    • Kyle

      It is very difficult to create a business from a smartphone, you can definitely use it and access WA through your phone, communicate, consume the training, etc…but you will be much more efficient if you have a laptop/desktop.

      I would recommend that you make use of a local library if you don’t have a computer and you are looking to get a business started online. They always have free access to computers.

  5. Charis Pardo

    Thank you so much Kyle. Reading this post made me even more confident that my online business could take off. My question is what products can we market?

    Ill await your reply thank you.

    • Kyle

      What you promote on your website and what product/services you recommend is dependant on your niche choice. There are millions of products of services you can promote as an affiliate and as you go through the training at Wealthy Affiliate you are going to be walked through this.

      It is a brilliant business model to be an affiliate marketer because you don’t have to worry about inventory, customer support, shipping, etc. You just help people make smart purchasing decisions, solve problems, and collect a % of the purchase. You will learn all about this and much more as you move through the Getting Started training at WA.

    • Kyle

      We can definitely help you get rolling at Wealthy Affiliate, you have absolutely everything you need within the community to create and grow your business online Florent. You will get 2 free websites with the starter membership and by lesson 3 within the Getting Started training, you will have your niche business chosen and ready to build out.

      I look forward to working with you moving forward and if you have any questions about the set-up of your business or anything relating to the online business world, you will be able to get help directly from me inside of WA.

      • Joakim

        I have been into affiliate marketing for years and I still haven’t succeeded. Sure I have made some money here and there but I have never managed to make it consistent. Doubts äre eating me up, I am jumping from one thing to another having problems to decide what to do next. Even been a member at Wealthy Affiliate on two occasions.

        Still I will never give up, I need this more than ever. I am going back to Wealthy Affiliate maybe that will help me get back on track.



        • Kyle

          It sounds like you are jumping around from Shiny Object to Shiny Object. This is a tendency in this space because people are portraying that you can create “instant” success online, just to sell their latest info product or scheme.

          The reality of it is that it takes time to create success, but even more so, it takes focus on one thing. Wealthy Affiliate will teach you exactly what you need to know and walk you by the hand through the process of building a very successful business online, but if you are only willing to give yourself a month to achieve success, unfortunately you are cutting yourself short.

          The time and energy you invest into any online business will not pay off NOW, rather it will pay of later and the cool part is, FOREVER (in many cases). If you ever need a hand as you jump back into things over at WA, do let me know and I will be more than happy to give you a hand.

  6. Bob

    I Think my knowledge of the internet and how websites work is holding me back at this point. I have been in auto sales for awhile now and I understand sales is a numbers game.You have to build value and trust.Then you have to ask for the sale, then ask again.I think the try it before you buy it approach of wealthy affiliate and the helpful team building community as a whole is why this program is successful. Thanks to Kyle and Carson for all the hard work involved in putting this opportunity together.

    • Kyle

      That is why we do it Bob, we know that people will enjoy our service and truly take advantage of what we offer before they have to spend a dime. That is how businesses should operate and how the ones I follow and trust do.

      When you go to build out your very own website, these are the principles you should follow. Before you SELL to anyone, it comes down to building trust and helping them. If you can accomplish this, you can build a very successful business within any niche. This is what we teach at Wealthy Affiliate and I really look forward to seeing you progress through the training and your business take shape.

  7. Joanne Barbieri

    Hi, I’ve been reading everyone’s comments on your program and it certainly sounds interesting. My question is, if the Program is $0 to join, how does anybody make any money? And what is the difference between the regular and premium programs? Is the premium program $25 a month? Also, do you have to “go out” on the internet and buy solo ads to get people to find out about this business (I can’t think how else they would find out). Thanks for any info.

    • Kyle

      Nobody does make any money if you join for the $0 Starter program, that is our way of showing to you that we are real, we are ethical and we are the most helpful community in the world. No obligations, but if you do want some of the more advanced training, tools, websites, support, etc…there is a Premium membership (which includes absolutely everything you need to create and grow a business online).

      You do not have to “buy solo ads”, whoever is teaching this stuff has no idea what they are talking about. We are going to teach you how to properly create a business online (in any niche you like) that is geared for long term success. Join the Starter and you will immediately have access to the first level of the training, by lesson 4 alone you will have your very own niche site…for free.

  8. Geraldine Templeton

    Hi Kyle I am just starting and am have problems understanding everything. I keep trying and maybe I will work into it.

    • Kyle

      This will all make very good sense if you do decide to join WA as we will be walking you through the process and showing you how everything works. In a nutshell, you are can take any passion/interest that you may have and create a business online. There are really 4 steps to online success:

      Step 1: Build a website (related to your niche)
      Step 2: Create helpful content
      Step 3: Content leads to rankings/traffic
      Step 4: Earn money from the traffic.

      This process and all the tools/websites/hosting you need is included within WA, even within the Starter program which is completely free. I suggest you head over to the WA website and create yourself a free account and get rolling from there. I know you are going to love it.

  9. Darlene

    Love this. You obviously have years of experience. This is so well done. It has given me a few ideas of my own. Thank you.


  10. Rick Alison

    Kyle I’ve dreamed of working from home online for a long time now, and yes with the fear of failure and not knowing enough about the computer world, and how to do a lot of things I have now learned from WA in such a short period of time.

    Now I will admit I still do get a little frustrated at times if things don’t go right, but I just get up and walk away for a bit letting my head clear, then I come back and jump in the saddle to try again.

    I have made many mistakes, but I can honestly that’s the best way of learning. I mean how can you seriously learn anything if you don’t make mistakes now and then.

    I know just being here at WA for such a short period of time I have learned more than I ever have before and feeling more confidant than I ever have knowing I have the WA community and of course yourself and Carson included standing behind me with all your help and support to help me succeed. I can’t thank you all enough for this opportunity.

    • Kyle

      So wonderful to hear you are loving the experience thus far at Wealthy Affiliate, I can assure you that it only gets more exciting as you see your business come together.

      We all make mistakes along the way and many folks have likely run into a scam or two before they find their way to WA. Now that you have found us, you have absolutely everything you need to create and grow your business online Rick. Look forward to working with you and get in touch with me if you need a hand with anything going forward.

  11. Rae

    Hi Kyle!
    I saw your review on the CFM and I was totally happy I read your review which lead me here. I am not new to computers but I’m new to Internet marketing. I’m a college student in my last year and I want to be able to make a profit so I can start paying off loans right away! I am considering signing up. Will this site really help me become more knowledgable and gain profit!

    Excited to hear from you!

    • Kyle

      Money won’t happen right away, but you will absolutely be able to create your own business and a significant source of income online if you are willing to work at it. Like you Rae, I started while in school full time and by the time I graduated I was in a position where (a) I was making more than most of my professors (b) I didn’t have to go out and get a job in the real world.

      It will take hard work and dedication the same as any business, but it will absolutely be worth it and you have access to everything you need within Wealthy Affiliate.

    • Kyle

      You do not have to pay for a host, we give you two free websites as a Starter membership (on a domain we host). If you wish to host your own domains, you can do so on our state of the art hosting platform/website building platform within the Premium membership. You could also transfer existing domains if you wanted.

  12. Joe

    Hi Kyle just found your site while doing research on one of those buy before you try sites. Was laid off couple months ago and have been doing extensive amounts of research so i can start to shake the dependency of working for someone else and having little to show for it in the end. look forward to joining and beginning the starter course. Thanks in advance for the oppurtunity.

    • Kyle

      I really do look forward to working with you. We are a true, try before you buy website. Our Starter membership offers WAY more than any other product/service in the industry and is completely free. I know you are going to love it and if you need anything going forward, hit me up within WA.

  13. Sunshine Jensen

    Hi Kyle, I started with EN two weeks ago and went on to promote two companies that I’m very passionate about plus myself as I know I have much to offer. But all I’m getting are motivational videos .. I want to learn how promote myself and these products.. I’m just figuring out that there’s really NO PRODUCT! Wtc!!!! what do I do? Im on with the unstoppable family and really love them but I want to learn how I can promote these products and myself..

    • Kyle

      Yep, you have figured it out. This is the time of realization and the time that most folks make their exit. If you want to learn how to promote products within ANY niche and to choose your own path (not a forced path), I recommend that you set-up your Starter account at Wealthy Affiliate and get rolling. EVERYTHING (I mean it) is there, from the tools, training, websites, hosting, community and personal help.

  14. Marko

    Hi Kyle! I am a new member of W.A. I really love how you work, the customer is always on the first place!

    I have two questions. I am sorry if the questions are hm, stupid, but I am new in all that stuff…

    1# can I copy MY content from my webpage to my new webpage that I created in W.A.?? (after I copy, I will delete that content from my old webpage)
    – is that “stealing content in eyes of Google??”
    – will that affect my SEO and placing on Google??
    2# can i use three of your sentences from your ABOUT ME page, that you made i video tutorial (lose belly fat)
    – is that webpage live?published??
    – if I use those three sentences, wilL that affect my Google ranking and SEO??

    • Kyle

      I would never recommend copying content or putting duplicate content on your website, even if you are the original owner of that content. Google does not take this sort of content lightly and will actually lower your rankings if your dupe content is over a certain %. So I guess the long and short of it is no, don’t use dupe content.

      • Kyle

        Absolutely not Troy. In fact, you will never need your own products to be very successful online. There are 10,000’s of affiliate programs that allow you to promote whatever you like and there are networks like Amazon that allow you to promote any of their million+ products in exchange for a commission. We will teach you all about this through our step by step training inside of Wealthy Affiliate! (no experience required)

  15. Nolan Kraiger

    I AM VERY INTERESTED IN WHAT YOU ARE DOING,Ilive in New Zealand and do a lot of scuba diving and would be very interested in selling the gear online.

    • Kyle

      We can absolutely help you within Wealthy Affiliate. I suggest you get rolling with the Starter membership and I think you will instantly fall in love with the community and service there Nolan. Everything you need is there to learn how to promote scuba gear online and learn how to become an authority within this niche.

  16. Sherrie Noble

    Hi Kyle,
    I’m a blogger and have a short story I’ve written. Will the websites here let me have some sort of back part of the blog for folks that they can enter/subscribe to and maybe get a full copy with original content from me?

    Thanks and joining for other online biz as well.

    • Kyle

      Absolutely, this is quite easy to do actually. You can actually create private password protected pages easily within WordPress. With the Starter membership you get two free WordPress websites (unlimited within Premium). We can definitely help you out with and the building out of a solid business plan. It is one thing to have a product, it is another to understand how to get traffic to your site. That is critical to a successful business online and we can help you out with that.

  17. Aqua

    I know this page is about making your own website but I was hoping you could direct me to other good ways of making money. The issue is I wouldn’t know what to make a website about. 1) All the good ideas seem to have been done 2) Copyright infringement is too easy to commit. I mean you could be screwed by just one picture.

    I would just be terrible at making my own website because I am terrible at being my own boss. I created a message board once. I had very few visitors and was terrible at keeping up with it. Now obviously if I was working for someone else, I’d have to share their profits. I am fine with that. You are right that Swagbucks is not very profitable. I have tried Clickworker before but I was hoping for something that gives me a more steady income. I have even looked for graphic designer internships and came up with nothing. Also I know as a graduate of graphic design, I seem perfect at making my own website but I really can’t.

    I have googled and googled but also I come up with is work at home programs that cost. I also tried data entry a long while back and they did not have anything for me.

    • Kyle

      You can make a website about whatever you like. I typically recommend that you choose something that you are interested in as your starting point “niche”. There is money in every niche if you understand how to make it. Want to know how?


      If you can help people within any niche online, you can create a full time business from it. No trickery, no slight of hand, nothing else required. That is what you are going to learn within WA and you absolutely don’t or shouldn’t feel like the Internet is “tapped” out of opportunity. To me, it is still in its infancy and I have seen a lot over my last 11 years online.

      And you will never be copying content with what we teach. There is no need for it and the only people doing this have no idea what they are doing. Join the WA Starter membership Aqua and don’t look back. It will be the greatest decision you have ever made.

    • Kyle has answered your question with great details. I would also like to mention that some WA members share their OWN images within WA so others could use them without risking the copyright infringement. I have personally share a few dozen of photos and images on Wealthy Affiliate and other members are free to use them as they please. It truly is an amazing community 😉

  18. Michal

    Hi Kyle,
    How refreshing! Thank you.
    I’m an artist. I make both 2 and 3 dimensional work, cast glass sculpture and monoprints. The ultimate site I’d like is one that showcases and sells my work. Is WA a viable place to build that type of site?

    • Kyle

      It absolutely is Michal and we will help you with not just getting a website up, but the marketing and show you how to get “eyes” on your work (traffic). Along with this you are going to be able to get help from experts and network within other aspiriing entrepreneurs within Wealthy Affiliate.

      • Vic

  19. Ricardo Turner


    You are definitely the mentor I’ve always needed. When run into a problem, I don’t know what to do or where to go. This is my second around, I don’t understand what the discussion and the community where all about, but I’m all in now ready to take action.

    • Kyle

      Thanks Ricardo. More than happy to work with you and help you get moving in the right direction with your business. Great to see you active within Wealthy Affiliate and if you ever need anything, you know where to find me!

      • Karri Powers

        Hi Kyle, I am very interested in working with you. I too joined EN last year for a month and quickly realized that it was a scam, and it just didn’t feel right. I got out of it quickly, but I am still very interested in working from home, promoting my Life Coaching services, helping people overcome obstacles and so forth. I know it’s possible to make a lot of money doing this, and plenty of people are actually doing it! I just don’t even know how to start! Can you work with me too? I am motivated and interested. I have been in sales for years and I am also burned out from prospecting and trying to talk people into things when they are not motivated. Please let me know how we can work together. Thanks!

        • Kyle

          Yes, we can absolutely help you Karri. We teach you the “proper” way to create a business online at Wealthy Affiliate, within any niche of your choice. The key is understanding the fundamental of online business and it is all going to start with your niche specific website (which you are going to be building by Lesson 4 of the getting started training).

          I suggest you set-up a Starter membership and you will immediately have access to the training, the websites and the support (including myself). I look forward to working with you.

  20. Charles Malabed

    Great! I am considering to try your site. What really inspired to join is that your wiilingness to provide
    guidance and support.

    I am a newbie. I really hope you can find me a room in your site. Awaiting for your reply.

    Kindest regards,


    • Kyle

      Wonderful Charles, I know you are going to absolutely love WA if you give it a try. Again, there are no costs to get rolling with the Starter account and you will be instantly impressed upon entering the community. If you need anything after joining, I am there. You can get in touch with me via my profile.

  21. Eric

    Hey Kyle- How many websites are included if I purchase the premium package with wealthy affiliate? I am going to do niche marketing and know that if a couple niches dry up it’s time to launch new websites.


    • Kyle

      The Premium includes hosting for unlimited websites. You can host unlimited domains (that you own) and you build unlimited website using a free websites (on our domain). So basically you have the ability to be within unlimited niches. Hope this adds some clarity.

    yeah i pretty much will do anything to avoid creating a website or blog cause of fear of failure….i never finshed school and had add adhd and other box labels that made me feel stupid and to this day i carry it around learning and studying and i just go into freeze mode wen a challenge is brought up…any suggestions

    • Kyle

      Patrick, pick something that you are interested in and RUN with the idea online. I can help you out and so can the entire community within Wealthy Affiliate to get out of FREEZE mode. You have all the skills and then some to achieve success online, it is just a matter of getting the action down. There are really no risks to taking action (you can get started at WA for no cost, including websites), and mistakes you may potentially make are not costly. They are part of the learning process.

      You should be more afraid of what will happen if you don’t take action. That is the approach I have always taken.

    I would love to pursue a career in aviation in particular Pilot and that is so expensive for one who has just left school. Been researching about online marketing and they all seemed shady. Almost joined Empower(Had a credit card in my hand actually then decided to do more research and ended up here). This is the first site I feel is genuine. hope am able to make the money I need to pursue my career goals but i know am going to need a lot of patience and perseverance. But am willing to try.

    • Kyle

      Cristobel, the reason most things seemed shady was because they likely were Unfortunately that is the state of the Internet these days, there are gurus and vultures at every corner looking to take advantage of unsuspecting folks. I think that if you do go through the steps above and take advantage of the Starter membership, you are going to be well on your way to doing something legitimate and I will be there to help you out every step of they way.

  24. Daniel

    I’m just curious about your affiliate program. I’ve seen a lot of claims by a lot of sites, and I’ve found one thing in common: you never get to find out any useful information about their product(s) until you’ve already paid.

    That being said, I know that you agree with me on this, because I’ve been reading through your site.

    However; I can’t seem to find any useful information on your company’s product either. Or is it simply a wordpress blogging site?

    I’m just wondering, because if that’s the product, and if that’s what we’re to make profit on, then I’ve already got that for free…so I’m trying to figure out EXACTLY how you actually earn anything.

    I’m sure this won’t upset you, as I know you say you have thick skin, and so do I. :o) So just lay it out there. *LOL*

    • Kyle

      We are FAR more than that. Instead of me explaining exactly what we are and what you will get, you can check it out for yourself. We offer a Starter membership that will get you access into the community for free and I think you will realize that we are not just websites, we teach you how to create a REAL business online…the proper way. So create your Starter link using the link above this Daniel and if you ever need a hand getting up and running, I will be able to help you out inside of WA.

      And no hard feelings, I can understand your cautiousness within the online world, there are some real crooks out there but I can assure you that the service at WA is the best you will find anywhere (and I will stand behind that).

  25. RazorSharp

    Hi Kyle, I have read every word written by yourself about WA and all the questions & replies you have given.
    I am impressed and glad I found you & WA. I have for the past year or more been needing & wanting to start my own online business. I lost my last job due to injury. In all honesty I have been questioning my own confidence and ability to carve out a successful career online, mainly due to the lack of knowledge and experience to grasp & apply the forever changing techniques & methods required in starting & building a successful business online to replace my lost wages. I have seen 100s of the gurus (actors) videos & scam artists out there who find &(spam) my in-box on a daily basis, (Affiliate Marketers) & can honestly say the big money figures have obviously been tempting but to date have avoided buying into their big launches as I have learned to do research on everyone of them before making a decision, which is how I found you & WA. Finding someone I feel I can trust not to rip me off in the process, to train me & lead me by the hand & in the right direction & in an easy to follow method is definitely what I need as a 64 year young Greenhorn NEWBIE willing to now take the bull by the horns, get stuck in and stop watching scammy videos, dreaming of success. I just need a damn good kick up the rear end & for someone genuine willing to take me on. How many hours per day is realistic Kyle to make a positive effort in learning, applying and seeing results. I am on holiday abroad in September for 12 days Kyle is that a possibility, to be up & running & earning before I go using your methods in WA. Many Thanks for reading my rant and look forward to your honest, realistic & positive response. Best Regards. Razor.,

    • Kyle

      Work through the training Razor and things will happen. Me personally it took me two full months before I made my first $1 online, by month 6 I was doing very well and by month 12 I was full time. That is how it works, the time and energy you invest into your business now will pay off later. What I can tell you is that everything you need to get started online and to build and grow your business is within WA, the only missing piece is you and your dedication. Work hard and make it happen!

      • RazorSharp

        Hi Kyle,
        Many thanks for your informative reply. It seems a long time before anything happens but I suppose I have to accept that is the nature of things regarding an online business etc & there are no shortcuts. Oh well, other income streams are a must whilst starting/building.
        Many Thanks

        • Kyle

          People work their entire lives to get a small raise in their salary. Working a few months at your OWN business should not seem like a long ride. Life is long and getting a business up and running online and successful is just a tiny fragment of that in the scheme of things. Isn’t that worth it?

  26. Ezekiel

    Hey Kyle,
    Just a couple of questions if it’s not much of a bother…

    I’m a bit inconvenienced at the moment as I don’t have a stable internet connection, only on my smartphone – are the getting started tutorials offered in text and perhaps images? Videos might be a big boo boo for me.

    Also, would you recommend any fresh unsaturated niches I could begin my journey with?

    Much appreciated!

    • Kyle

      Each lesson has both text and video, along with image walk throughs. We also have a lot of “text only” training within our database, but obviously a more vast amount of this education being within the Premium membership (which has more than anyone would every need in respect to online education). You could definitely use that from your phone, but actually trying to run a business from your phone probably doesn’t make a lot of sense nor is a it a realistic proposition.

      A fresh niche is one that you are interested in. I don’t recommend that you choose a niche based on what others say is a good niche, rather you make a niche good by the way you approach it. Any niche online can be very lucrative!

    • Roy

      Dear Ezekiel,
      I go the the Library to use their Internet. Also even faster is the local Rec. Center. We have even used McDonalds and Safeway–and other free wi fi’s like coffee houses.

  27. Saro

    Hi Kyle,
    How sophisticated can my WA site be? I have an idea for a site but it needs to have forum and chat capabilities. Is this possible with WA? Also, would I be able to start right away with a domain name that I have already purchased?

    • Kyle

      The websites you create using WA are on our state of the art hosting and they utilize the WordPress platform, which has over 10,000 different plugins. These do have things like forums and chat, but I do recommend that you go through the Getting Started training as we will get you up and running with your foundation for success…it starts with getting traffic to your website before you have all the bells and whistles and we can help you out with all of this.

  28. Peter

    Hi Kyle,
    I joined WA many months ago, but to be honest I found the site a little baffling as there seemed to be just too much content. But, of course that was my problem and now after many months I find myself working through the affiliate bootcamp and really enjoying it. Keep up the good work, I’ll be going premium in the next week or so.

    • Kyle

      Like anything new, it can be overwhelming at first and our efforts recently have been to simplify many of the tasks when getting started online. Yes, we offer a vast amount of training, but we do understand that when someone is starting out they do need their hand held and I think that with some recent changes, you have probably noticed that all folks are really enjoying the getting started training and truly getting it.

      I am really glad you are enjoying the Affiliate Bootcamp Peter and I look forward to working with you! I know you are absolutely going to love the Premium access within WA, it is truly everything you need to create, build and scale an online business in an all-inclusive fashion.

  29. Yvonne Cousar

    Good Morning Kyle… I have the free starter membership, and I’m about 75% sure that I want to become a premium member. I have a question about the free websites. I understand they are hosted by Wealthy Affiliates, however, if I create my websites through Wealthy Affiliates, do I own them or are they the property of Wealthy Affiliates… this is a critical issue for me. Please advise.


    • Kyle

      You own the websites when you buy the domain. The free websites are hosted on our domain, and although you don’t own them, you have full control of the content. As a Premium member, you can host your own domains (as many as you like) on our hosting network and you will be able grow these like you would any real estate, the only difference is that this is virtual real estate.

      Hope this clarifies and if you have any further questions, just let me know. The free sites are still excellent because you do have full control and you can promote anything you like on them, but at some point it is only natural to start building your websites and content within your own domains. That is the natural progression.

  30. judy fitzpatrick

    I am a senior and forced to live on a pension that is below the poverty line, however, I love the internet but am no expert. I would love to learn how to run an internet business but they all seemed to hard and costly.I saw the video on EM but was not convinced it was
    honest as they just repeated how rich they were!!!! So now that I have found your site I wonder if you can teach an old girl new tricks.

    • Kyle

      We absolutely can help you out. Follow through the Getting Started steps and you will be well on your way. Anyone can learn this “Internet thing” and after following the steps you are going to be put into Getting Started training at Wealthy Affiliate that is going to lead to all of this making much more sense (and you building your own nich website).

  31. Rajan Cherian

    I was almost lost in the thick dense forest of IM. Having found your site, I’m beginning to see a very clear path before me which I know will lead me to my desired goals and the fulfillment of my dream – of being financially free.
    Thank you

    • Kyle

      Glad I could help point you in the right direction Rajan and I see that you have joined Wealthy Affiliate. If you need a hand with anything going forward, please do let me know and I will help you out.

  32. Brenda Varjabedian

    I have a problem knowing where to put some of my information on my site. I don’t know where to go to crop photos and I can’t seem to put images where I would like them. I have spent at least 4 to 5 hours in the last 3 days trying to figure this out. Am I missing something in the videos or lessons that I’m not applying correctly? Thanks Kyle

    • Kyle

      Hi Brenda,

      If you are looking to edit your images, you will need an image editor. There is an online one that is free and quite powerful. It is called Pixlr and you can access the editor here:

      Hope this helps you out. This will allow you to crop, resize and manipulate any of your images.

  33. Literacy 4 Everyone


    This is great information. I wish more people found WA before they spend hundreds… even thousands on paper thin, non-descript, old technique, and not useful information. Keep up the great work!

    • Kyle

      I wish the world would do the same and nobody would ever have to subject themselves to a scam or a low quality product online and that is going to be the ongoing effort of my site here.

      PS. Glad you are enjoying yourself and WA. See you inside the back office.

  34. sunny

    kyle,I am 51. Don’t have a clue on what business to start. Don’t know anything about websites. Iam a graduate from an LVN school. I will have my LVN license maybe next month. I also have an Insurance License.I do a lot of cold calling, which I hate.

    • Kyle

      Hey Sunny,

      The great thing about the Internet is that you are NOT going to need to do ANY cold calling. I have been at this over 10 year now and I have not made ONE single cold calling…so if you truly do not like cold calling, you need to be on the Internet.

      My recommendation to you is to get started at Wealthy Affiliate with a FREE starter membership. Won’t cost you a dime and you will be able to fill in all the blanks as there is a walk-through training course that you are put into right away. You also don’t have to worry about Websites, as you are going to get 2 free websites (that are super easy to set-up) as soon as you get into WA.

      From there, you have access to a community that will move you in the right direction, offer help when you need it, and you will see me hanging out there regularly. Getting started online can be difficult if you don’t know where to start and I absolutely know that Wealthy Affiliate is going to solve any confusion for you.

  35. One of the main benefits that I see from getting started at Wealthy Affiliate is the amount of instant and positive support.

    It’s rare that you join an internet marketing group and see messages of welcome popping into the chat window isn’t it?

    Support comes not only in the guise of tutorials – but real people offering real help – There are plenty of us known to jump onto a members admin area and sort out a few issues for the new members when needed.

    If you’ve tried and failed at affiliate marketing in the past, dig deep have a think… I’m sure you’ll find the reasons you failed were around the lack of support and real help.

    Set yourself up for success and join a community where your failure is not an option…

    And all for free.. that’s the kicker right there!

    • Kyle

      I would compare it to going to University, but simply being able to hang out with all of the professors whenever you want and being able to query them specifically on an questions that you have.

      It is a community, people care about each other, and it makes life MUCH easier when trying to get a business running online.

      I appreciate your feedback Tony and it is wonderful to have you as part of the community at WA!

  36. Noor

    Hi Kyle, I have a question on how to write the content or articles on the website. Coz I have been struggling to get some idea on how to create one. Please help advice how to write the content to the website? Do i need to be creative? Or do some research, or just based on experience due to certain niche that I want to promote or share?

    • Kyle

      I typically recommend that you break down your content into smaller topics.

      -sub topic
      -sub topic

      This approach to writing content online will make life that much easier.
