About AbelD
Joined December 2015
I am 62 years old and have lived in South Africa since the age of 12. My professional background is insurance. I was retrenched and decided not to return to the insurance industry. I decided to join Pet Protector, because I love pets of any kind. I share my house with 2 Rotties, a Great Dane and two mixed breeds Rottweiller/Great Danes and I liked the idea of the nano technology discs, to protect my dogs from disease spreading ticks, fleas and mosquitos without using toxic chemicals. I want to dedicate the rest of my life to spread the word about this product, save animals from disease and aggravation and obviously also make some money to live. In the process I hope to offer people in my situation, looking for work, an opportunity to do the same, please look me up on my Facebook page: Protector Protector SA

How's it going Abel?

Hi Jimbo,

Thanks for keeping in touch pal and for viewing my Pet Protector site from time to time.

At this point I feel like I am going nowhere fast. Delving into too many areas of Internet marketing and getting myself confused. I have only managed to get to Course 1, Lesson 2 of WA but intend to get back into it this afternoon and each day this week.

I burnt all my bridges to ensure that I give my all to making my venture with Pet Protector a success. I am battling on and will get it right, if it kills me in the process.

Awesome spirit!

Tips for today...

go on facebook and search for as many groups and pages in your niche...search for the following...

1. pet care
2. cat care
3. dog care
4. animal care

etc...

and any others that you know better than me...

Join as many as you can, there should be loads...

once you are a member you can advertise your blog post(s)

Jimbo

Takes Time buddy! As you know Rome wasn't built in a day and neither was an awesome monetized website...

STICK AT IT Abel...

You've already come too far to quit. And everyone including me is here for you! Right WA folks?

Jimbo!

Hi Jimbo,

Can't find fault with anything you wrote.

I think you may have misunderstood me, I am not quitting in fact just the opposite. Yesterday I was up until 2:30 am reading up on social media etc.

Thanks for the advice and have a great week,
Abel

Hi Bob,

I am now following you.

Thanks a lot for the kind words. Seeing the word has not spread much around Australia, I am going to target my marketing there a lot more, as I believe the Australian tick is much more dangerous than those in other continents. The disc applies not only to dogs and cats but also to horses and even sheep.

I too wish you much success in 2016.

Kind regards,
Abel

Hi, glad to meet me, lol.

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for following me.

I’m pretty impressed with WA training and I think we have found a gold mine of information. Hmmm, seems like geniuses like us tend to gather in the same place (lol).

I started making money online in 2004. WA wasn't around back then. I had to learn from scratch. What took me 2 years to accomplish online, you will be able to do in a couple of months if you are new to running an online business.

The wealth of knowledge here in the tutorials and the help from fellow WA members is exceptional. I have never met a bunch of like-minded people who are so eager to help yet ask nothing in return.

When I came to WA in February 2015, I was skeptical. Seen enough online scams in my time. I searched high and low for "the catch." There was none. I learned WA is legitimate. There is no pressure to upsell me more products or services. That was refreshing.

Anyway Abel, here’s wishing you all my best for your success with online marketing.

Please feel free to send me a private message if there is anything I can do for you.

You can send me a private message if you have questions by going to my profile and clicking on the private message button; https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/grampamike

You may also want to check out my WA profile blog posts as there is some interesting and informative information there.

Here is a sample of what you will find; Here’s a little inspiration: Update: I wanted to mention that all my recent posts on my website get ranked in the top 5 for my keyword or keyword phrase. So study the tutorials here at WA. They hold the clues for getting top ranking for your web pages.

Hi Ken,

Could not agree with you more. I appreciate the advice and the offer of assistance.

I am not getting into the training to become rich quick, but to learn, improve myself...and then make a living from Network Marketing, God willing. If it is my destiny to become rich, so be it. LOL.

Much success for 2016. Happy New Year.

Hi Debra,

Thank you for the welcome.

I am going to devote myself full time to distributing the Pet Protector disc. We are on a mission to eradicate ticks, fleas, mosquitoes and other parasites, from dogs, cats and even horses, around the globe. This is a win,win situation, it is a unique product without competition worldwide. Only available from appointed distributors and joining is Free, if that is what is required. Fantastic Compensation Plan too. So not only do pet owners and their pets win, but as distributors we also win. Please do look at my Face book pages: Pet Protector SA and Pet Protector Distributor Opportunity. Any comments or suggestions would be much appreciated.

All the very best for 2016 and Happy New Year.

Hi Victoria,

Thank you for the welcome.

I see you only joined a couple of months ago and you are already in the top 100. Care to enlighten me on how you did that? I would love to be among the top 100 in the next 6 months. I am going to watch your progression to the Top 10.

By the way I see your picture is that of two beautiful pets. Care to look at my Facebook page under Pet Protector SA?

Warm regards and wishes for a successful 2016.

Hello Abel
Thank you for replying to my message. Yes I joined in September so It's coming up to 4 months soon. As far as being in the top 100 - it just comes from your activity here within WA - it doesn't mean much outside of WA - but gives me great satisfaction. The way you move up is by being active and helping others where you can. eg - being active in terms of adding content to your website, asking for comments and feedback. Helping others by logging into your activity dashboard and answering any questions where you think you can help. You can even search for answers withn the community itself in order to be able to answer a question - sometimes new members don't know how to find their way around and find it difficult to find an answer. Also - if you post a question yourself and bost a blog every now and again - it all counts towards your points and will help you move up the rank.
As I mentioned earlier, moving up the rank within WA does not mean that you rank better on Google or anywhere else, however it is greatly satisfying to know that you are able to help others and also ask questions yourself and get answers.
I hope this answers your question and look forward to following your progress aswell.
Please do not hesitate to contact me directly if you ever need anything.
Best regards and all the best for the New Year.

Hi there Abel ! :)

Ensure that you upload an image and write something as an intro to get lots more help and advice.

A quick rundown of what you have signed up for at WA.

1. Two Free Websites with names up to you.
2. Lessons for beginners on how to build a website using WordPress.
3. How to MONETIZE your website(s).
4. Keyword Tool for keyword research.
5. Live chat - just one of the tasters of premium membership (7 Days).
6. So many other features that would take a long list to cover right here.

You'll find those things out for yourself if you have a good click about the site.

"Glad you made it - let your journey to self sufficiency begin - there's a lot to learn here, I know, but don't get overwhelmed."

Things WILL fall into place if you just stick to the training, ask questions, and work on your website.

Take everything step by step and don't skip any steps - It is vital that you fully understand each step before progressing on to the next. I recommend the bootcamp first, before going to the green GET STARTED HERE at the top left of the screen in the dashboard.

The BOOTCAMP lessons are targeted at how to build a website in the niche of Making Money Online (promoting things like WA, Keyword Research Tools, Domain Name Registrars, etc etc) If you feel WA is as awesome as most feel it is - go ahead and learn how to promote WA. But Make Money Online is a rather competitive niche - be warned. But don't let that put you off.

The GREEN "get started here" button at the top left is the place you go if you don't want to do the boot camp and you want to learn about how to go into any other niche imaginable.

I wrote a little poem for you. LOL, hope you like it!

"There is no rush, there is no race.
You can do it all at your own pace!"

Cheers and Good Luck!


James (call me Jimbo)

P.S. Contact me if you are getting "stuck" on something, If I don't know the answer myself I will point you in the right direction to someone who does. I've been here at Wealthy Affiliate for quite some time now, so I know who is knowledgeable in particular topics, so I can easily get you connected to them.

Don't be afraid to ask questions, even if they seem dumb to you. Many people have the exact same question as you, so you are actually HELPING others by asking that question you think might be "dumb"

Peace!
