Your website must be hosted somewhere. Furthermore, it must be accessible and changeable at will and connect to the Google search engine. SEO is important and this is well covered in my last article.

At WA you can actually host two websites for free with most of the facilities. When you want to increase the number of sites it is a fixed monthly fee up to 50 websites $49 a month.

However, it does not end there, With your hosting, you get a free website builder that has an anti-spam facility, speed upgrade, site health meter, comments and feedback, support and security.

No one does it better!



When you search the Internet you search with Keywords to find what you want. They are the dominant factor In search terms

Using Keywords on your web page is a real art. Most of all it determines whether you will be successful or not In web page building. WA Hosts a free Keyword Builder for basic searches. and as a result, you can search before you choose. There is an upgrade for the more gregarious but the basic is free.

Does anyone else give you this?

If you are considering either building websites or wanting to go to affiliate marketing this is:

The best training available, you would pay thousands elsewhere.


The active community is available at any time for help, support and feedback. Many do regular posts with encouragement and ideas to succeed. On many sites, high achievers cannot be identified or approached. Here at WA, you have access to any member to follow or comment. Many declare incomes or ways to achieve it.

I have seen posts where they state you can not make money out of WA. We can prove to you a part of the income of any member because of the competition banner which is on every header.

Alice in Wonderland a journey down a hole.

I just commented to a new member that had joined WA and was wondering where all this would lead to, I said “

It’s like the Rabbit hole in Alice in Wonderland; when you enter and participate anything is possible.

I suggest starting a Rubix free website in any niche you can think of and then start the training at “Get Started here” By the time you finish, you will be like the Mad Hatter doing a dance.

It is a journey you will enjoy.

I am glad I entered the Rabbit hole but I made mistakes because I thought I knew more than I did.I had previously built sites on another Hosting that could not succeed because of a lack of knowledge.

In addition, I recently asked a top 20 members a question on success. He replied that he followed the training and it found him. No better way than saying that.

Automated Phone answering

Automated phone answering

Automated phone answering can make your life a lot easier by releasing the

pressure that builds with the persistent phone ringing.

There are several ways to achieve this so let’s take a look at it

Firstly you can use a phone system feature if it is available, you can also use an add-on box or take the calls to the cloud and let someone else handle the problem.

A Simple service

A simple service is when the call is picked up and the caller placed on-hold with a nice message. “We are busy hold the phone for awhile and we will get to you shortly”

This queues the call, but, a warning that you should not leave them too long or they will leave.

Auto attended service

Next is to auto attend the service and provide the caller with options to choose.

Press 1 for sales
or press 2 for accounts
Perhaps Press 3 for whatever department you want

That is automated phone answering but what happens to the calls when they press say 1.

Usually taken to an answering service of some kind.

Finally we go a step further where you have a few more choices to make.


Call diversion

Call diversion is via your telephone service usually on no answer or line busy.

When you divert your lines to a cloud-based service you then make all the same choices of how you want your calls answered.
A simple answer, auto attended or other enhanced services

Lastly, you can divert to a live service and instruct them on how to handle your call

Which automated phone answering is best for you?

First off all consider what you really want to achieve, the best way forward and the call volume.

*What do you want to achieve?

If it is just we are busy calls a Virtual service will do the trick. You are the best salesman.
Bookings, diary filling and appointment setting require a live service.

Review Wealthy affiliate

  • What is the best way forward?

This may be based on a lack of time, cost and/or convenience. Balance these inputs carefully.

  • The volume of calls.
    If you are selling a Dollar product and paying $3 a message you are out of business.
    Similarly, if calls are being lost with call queuing or slow answering think again.Each method has its own benefits to apply to your need.

I will give you a great example.

A health product was promoted in a news report on TV. The target audience was elderly but the interview created a massive volume of calls. No local live service could handle the volume of around 10,000 calls a day and I was contacted to help.
We set up a Virtual service that requested Name and best contact number and advised the callers It could be a few days before they would hear from us. Cost about $0.40 per call.
An interesting point was that even though it was not a live service and the callers were in the main plus 65 years old over 90% left an appropriate message. Why you may well ask and the simple answer was they wanted the product and this was the only option.

We then set up an outbound call centre that responded to the calls and wrote the sales.

The end to this was not as pretty. The company took the answering back in-house and completely messed up with calls queued and frustrated buyers.

Virtual call answering was the answer

If the volume is large you really need to take a simple approach


In conclusion for most normal applications, I believe a good Virtual service will provide adequate coverage and messaging.
