Take your Time

All this goes to say that taking your time is key and being in a rush will get you nowhere.
Chose a Niche you Love
If you’re going to be blogging and continually adding to your website, it is important to pick a niche that you are interested and passionate about. Your work is going to be ten times harder if you don’t love what you’re doing. Wealthy Affiliate teaches you to think of something that interests you to and base your website around that. Almost any interest can be turned into a profitable niche for an engaging and profitable online business.
If you love the niche for your website, your blog posts will have real charm and persuasiveness about them. No one wants to read something that is soulless and boring. But content written with energy and care is going to keep people on your website and will convert them far more efficiently into buyers.
Follow the Training Without Skipping Ahead
With so many lessons and tasks, there’s always going to be the temptation to jump ahead but trust me, that’s really not a good idea with this training platform. It is set out in a very systematic and well-thought-out way, designed to bring you from newbie to experienced throughout the courses. Even if you do already have some knowledge about WordPress and affiliate marketing, it is still important to follow the training all the way through because it is top quality training and a lot of it relates to using the Wealthy Affiliate system.
To skip ahead and then realise that you are not sure what you’re doing is only going to add frustration and hurt your chances at success.
Ask for Help Often
There is always the option to ask a question, get advice or help of a particular kind at Wealthy Affiliate. In fact, members are frequently encouraged to make use of this option at the end of video tutorials. Helps comes fast in the from of replies from experienced members of the community. It is a great way to keep moving forward and not have to do extra research all on your own.
As soon as you find yourself wondering what to do, whether it be to do with the technicalities of WordPress, keywords, writing content or something from one of the lessons that isn’t quite clear, just go straight to the questions section and ask about the issue you are having. There are categories which are there to match the topic of your questions.
Engage with the Community

There are live chats as well as the option to write blog posts for the community to see and comment on. This includes updating them on your progress, success stories, badges you’ve earned, such as having your website indexed or ranked on Google. You can also see and comment on other people’s posts and updates.
Wealthy Affiliate also allows members to earn what they call Credits. You may earn credits for example by offering comments on other people’s websites. They must be original, quality comments and lengthy enough for approval. This will then earn enable you to request comments on your own website articles.
Engaging with other people is an opportunity to be inspired, to learn, to be encouraged and helps you along the way with good connections and general moral support. It definitely helps with fostering an attachment to the community at W.A. And with this you are again, more likely to stick around and work towards your online success, encouraging others as well, just like a group of genuine friends or a family. The members really care about you and you develop a care for them by interacting with them.
Keep Adding to your Website
Just keep rolling once you have your website up and running. Keep adding content to increase the level of your ranking in Google and to keep attracting organic traffic which should ultimately convert into sales and add to your revenue. As they say, ‘practice makes perfect.’ You get better all the time and the work of producing quality content gets both easier and faster because you’re good at it and you’ve become used to it.
