About Alan Hocking
Joined October 2012
Hi there and thanks for dropping by my profile.

I'm Alan Roy Hocking, Author, Sales Trainer and Professional Online Business Coach

I've spent over thirty years in direct sales and marketing the major part of which was dedicated to recruiting and training sales people for various direct sales and telemarketing companies throughout Europe.

During that time I made it my personal mission to pass on the knowledge I gained from my own experience in direct sales and marketing to anyone who chose to make selling a long term career and really wanted to learn how to sell efficiently and improve their lifestyle.

My straight forward, down to earth and easy to understand style of coaching and teaching has earned me quite a large following of regular readers to my website.

The constant e-mails and words of encouragement received from my friends and followers made it a natural career move from Sales Training and Career Counselling into Online Business Coaching and teaching other people how to make money online with Affiliate Marketing.

Although I am kept busy with a full schedule I still find time to indulge in my third love of writing and publishing Self Help Books.

I'm looking forward to working with you all here.

There are so many members to keep track of that I'm noticing that I haven't been following you!
I hope you don't mind if I finally follow you.

You have a real knowledgeable profile for this WA.
This is one of the reasons why I am staying with WA. You having been here since 2012 speaks for itself and I know that the world is huge enough to make room for more new people.

I see that this can work when a person works on it. Great effort gives fantastic results.
I'm following you, now.

The world is definitely large enough Jen and this definitely works or I wouldn't have stayed so long

Here's to your future success as well! :)

Hi Alan wonder if you can help me, I've hit a brick wall , i am trying to get feed back on my site, as i don't want to go any further in case I'm just wasting time and effort, i have given feed back on 2 sites and still have no credit, one of the sites came back to me and thanked me for my ideas and thought it was great feedback, but still no credit achieved. then i see something about avatars, i don't remember seeing this in my lessons so far, but am i right in assuming i can't earn any credits till i have a avatar, also i still haven't been ranked in google after 2 weeks, do you think i have forgot to do something,hope you can help Colin

Hi Colin

Firstly it can take a few weeks to get a new site indexed and ranked so just be patient.

I didn't think you needed an avatar to give feedback on sites only to give comments.

I might be wrong so you need to check with Kyle regarding that one.

You should set up a gravatar account anyway if you haven't already done it as it will be useful for a lot of things going forwards.

Here's the training on it: Hope that helps

Alan :)

Hi Alan Hocking... I am currently looking for a niche to seek after... My original thought process was something to do with working from home? But now I think just going after inspirational quotes or motivational quotes of the day... 1 I believe its something that others would interact with and could get recognition. But I'm having a difficult time wondering how I might have motivational quotes turn into leads or a sale do you have any ideas? anyways I hope I'm not bugging you and I would appreciate any feedback or opinions you would have on the subject. Thanks

Hi Jay

Don't worry about bugging me I'm more than happy to help you whenever I can.

Motivational quotes is a great niche.

My first thoughts for monetizing it would be Adsense and reviewing motivational or inspirational books on Amazon.

Here's some more ideas for you This will all be covered in the training as well in the more advanced lessons but don't try to jump ahead of yourself or miss any of the training out as it will effect how quickly you succeed.

Hope that helps a bit for now

Alan :)

So what and where do I start.... I know you have to establish yourself as a leader. But I don't know what I can lead or teach people. If I'm jumping a head what would be the actions that I can do to make money the fastest then. As I am in debt to my eyeballs and I need to make money fast I didn't know promoting other peoples products and services was going to become what do i know or who can I teach and what can I teach.... I am growing frustrated... I don't know but I can use some step by step directions to get some actions done.

Just follow the training Jay (The green "Get Started Here" button on the left)

It's all laid out step by step for you.

What you must accept is this is not a "get rich quick system"

It's a genuine training center that will teach you exactly how to build a lucrative online business but it takes time and effort and certainly isn't going to happen overnight.

Hi Alan, I signed on today about 7 hours ago and I have been busy that for sure with all the emails and starting the lessons, no doubt you are use to it with the load you have, which would be double mine by the sounds of it, at least you know what you are doing, in a few days time I hope to have a much better understanding.

I am thinking that exciting times lay ahead just a few more lessons to go.

Okay Mate catch ya later … John

Greetings Alan! I was scrolling through some of the comments made from Jim Bo's blog, and thought I'd make some new WA Friends.

I'm actually still involved with a network marketing company; although I just started with WA less than 3 weeks ago, I feel that I have a nice balance between the two businesses. I'll make a mental note to check out your sites/blogs.

All the best!

Veronica

I Look forward to getting questions answered by you. The only help I can give you is guidance on what type of tile and grout to use so keep that in mind.

Hello Alan! I've got a few questions to ask if you don't mind: I'm thinking of going into real estate but I'm still lost as to what is the best targeted niche within it, as well as identifying my targeted audience in real estate. Also, how many niche do you advise on focusing when starting out like myself. Thank you!
Reply
Alan Hocking Premium
Hi Roy

Firstly I would advise you to focus on one niche to start with.

You can always try other niches once you have one working

Real estate is good but quite broad try to narrow it down to a type of property or area to start with
