About Abdokes
Joined December 2013
Hello, my name is Dave Swanson; I’m a 65 year old disabled Vietnam Veteran. I retired from the Union Pacific Rail Road in 2004 after working 33 years. I have been dabbling with affiliate marketing for about 5 years, nothing big, just fooling around. I have a few 2. 0 web sites that I setup using key words to act as a place to come before sending visitors to my landing page for official sign ups. One of the web sites is devoted to getting leads for a MLM gig that my wife is involved with. Although I rank #1 on Google for 3 major key words I just don’t get the traffic to make this site worthwhile, but I keep it open because it’s free and I do get a few new leads a week. My wife does not get anything out of a lead unless they sign up in her down line. The other site is a debt relief site that I built 2 years ago and am now re vamping the whole site with all new and original content. I have not selected an affiliate at this time because I want to finish the web site before going for the best rated debt relief program.

I’m looking forward to learning new ways to market new affiliate sites. I’m here to learn and follow others who have done well with this platform.

Hello abdokes, Nice goals. But reading your answer of Q3 I would recommend to read the book of Napoleon Hill (Think Big Grow Rich). But of course I can't (and I won't of course) judge because I don't know the reasons why you set your goals as you did. There are more important things in life than the $. Wish you very much success and a Happy New Year.

These goals are more than achievable as long as you put so much time to reach them.
Good luck!

Yes I'm enjoying my self here, learning lots also. Some times it's hard to teach an old dog new tricks, but I'm following the lessons quit well. If I don't understand, I start over from the beginning and do it until I understand it, slow but sure.

Thanks and good luck
Dave

It looks like you're moving along very nicely, Dave! I see you have your profile all setup and hopefully you've been engaging with the community a bit!


I'd love to get to know you and your income goals better so that I can do my best to set you up for success. Would you mind taking a minute to chime in and share here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/getting-started/what-are-your-money-goals


I keep a pretty close watch on that thread (and so do the co-founders of Wealthy Affiliate, Kyle and Carson), so posting your income goals there will give us a much better idea of what we can do to help you!


And of course, let me know if there's anything I can help you with Dave :)

Good day Dave and welcome to the Wealthy Affiliate community! The first thing I suggest you do is jump into a live chat and introduce yourself. You will find this on the main Dashboard within WA. Here you will find other members within the community (including myself) that you will be able to communicate with, network with and get help with. :)

Lots of help here and a lot of people that care about your personal success. If you get stuck, simply ask! I look forward to working with you!

Oh, and I wanted to also point you in the direction of the Getting Started Course which is located on your dashboard, and in the main menu under recommended training "Getting Started".

Here is the link: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1

Thanks Kyle, I’m working my way through the training, doing one or two lessons every day, than going back and doing them all over again so I don’t miss anything. Today I’m on lesson #7. I find the fresh information very welcoming as I have always done SEO the old way with tons of back links, article marketing, book marking, and so on.
All of the people here are very eager to help with questions, unlike some of the other forums that I frequent. Thanks again for what you have created.

Sounds like you are making good progress Dave! Things like backlinks are no longer relevant and ideally, you don't want to invest any time into this these days (it can do more harm than good). I am glad you are enjoying the training thus far and if you do need a hand with anything going forward, please let me know.

Hey Dave! I wanted to start you off with a quick note that could SIGNIFICANTLY impact your success with Wealthy Affiliate. Read this entire message if you are serious about being successful in internet marketing (it's lengthy, but I'm not joking when I say that this advice could make or break your entire internet marketing career):


1) You'll need to work consistently and hard. There's going to be a lot to learn in the beginning and you may feel overwhelmed at a point, but keep pressing forward and you'll make it through. It happened to me and every other successful internet marketer at some point, and the only way to become successful in this industry is to push past that overload whenever you get there.


Do yourself a favor and commit to a number of hours that you can work each week right now. It doesn't have to be massive, but it should be more than 10 between evenings and weekends at least. Just remember the more you work each week, the faster you'll learn and draw closer to success.


After you've picked the number of hours you can work each week, commit to working that much for AT LEAST six months - a year would be better. You won't see results immediately in this industry, and being consistent is the key. Pick a number of hours you can work each week, then work those hours for at least six months. It's something you've probably never done in this industry, and this advice alone will make a HUGE difference in your chances at succeeding with internet marketing as long as you take it seriously and STICK WITH IT.


2) I recommend starting off with this training (which you can access with your free account): https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1


It just scratches the surface of the MASSIVE amount of helpful content in WA, but you'll get a good "feel" for the teaching style here and begin to see the power of all of the great things they're teaching here at Wealthy Affiliate.


3) DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE COMMUNITY. Two of the best places you can go to for help when you get stuck are the "Live Chat" and the "Classrooms" sections located on the panel to your left. You'll find direction and inspiration through the community here, which is one of the reasons I recommend WA so highly.


4) Finally, you don't ever have to upgrade to the premium account here at Wealthy Affiliate if you don't want to. You'll have limited access using your free account for as long as you wish. HOWEVER, if you're serious about internet and affiliate marketing then you should invest in the premium membership for AT LEAST one month. You could look back on it years from now and see it as a pivotal moment in your internet marketing career, but you never will if you don't at least give it a try.


Check it out for a few days though - you don't need to upgrade right now. Make sure it's a good fit for you, and if you upgrade within the first 7 days you'll receive your first month's membership at more than 50% off. I keep my membership active and recurring every month so I can be here for the people I refer like you, so realize that I'm putting my money where my mouth is here!


On top of that, if you upgrade to a premium membership at the discounted rate within the first 7 days I have a special bonus EXCLUSIVE to people that join WA through me and upgrade within the first week of creating their free account. This bonus will show you how to be twice as successful with WA or any other legitimate internet marketing program out there and gives you some very valuable video lessons (which I recorded for you personally, of course) to ensure you get off to the right step in your internet marketing business.


I keep a close watch on the list of people that upgrade from starter to premium, so I'll send the bonus your way within 24 hours. If you upgrade and don't receive it within that time frame for some reason, just post on my WA profile and let me know!


I don't offer that bonus so you'll spring for the membership and make me more money, I offer the bonus just in case you needed that tiny "push" to make sure you invest in this training because I know that you will use for the rest of your IM career and it could change your life. I've referred hundreds of people now and I have NEVER had anyone tell me they were dissatisfied.


Best of luck to you! You're about to embark on a journey that could change your life forever, so make sure you take it seriously, put in the time and effort, and expect great things in return!


You know where to find me,
Ian Pribyl
