About AlanJE
Joined September 2017
Hi I started looking into internet marketing about 9-10 months ago, and probably blundered into many potholes before stumbling across WA, which I hope will be my saviour. I like WA´s ethical approach to internet marketing.

I have a lifetime of experience in project management so internet marketing is still relatively new to me. I immersed myself in everything which I could possibly learn, from which I concluded I definitely don't want any involvement in MLM.

I set up a couple of websites and am trying to get them launched.
One is www.personalized-goods.com, which is an commerce store, also www.midiia.myshopify.com. I also set up onlinemarketingsoftware.org, which I am developing, and I would like to develop Affiliate Marketing as well.

As hobby and relaxation, I enjoy running especially, which I have done for many years, but I have participated in a few triathlons in the Middle East in the last few years, where I was working. Now I am based in Europe, between Slovenia (where I live half way up a mountain) and the UK, both of which are good places to enjoy sports.

I also appreciate art and enjoyed painting when I had spare time. Looking forward to a time when i can do this again, when i have mastered the paradox of the internet:-)

Thank you very much for your follow, Alan, and we follow you back.
Sounds like you are an expat, like us? You said you now live in Europe so we assume you originally hail from elsewhere?
Running is a great sport. It's important to stay fit for life as it enhances everything else we do, including our WA work.
We love to exercise as well. Spinning, weights and yoga.
We are all fit and ready to take on this challenge of WA and enjoy it along the way.
The very best to you and enjoy your great outdoors.

Hi Alan,
I'm relatively new to this as well. I, like you, have tried others and they have not faired well. I see you have been doing this about 7 months and how are you doing? I'm just trying to gauge how long before I see something positive from the website. This experience has been more positive than any others, so I believe that I will be successful.

Hi Janice, I got distracted with a few things during the latter quarter of last year, so lost a lot of time which I put into ecommerce, which did not come off. With the benefit of hindsight I should have just worked my way through the training here and progressed with Affiliate Marketing. I am now busy with other work, so i can't spend as much time at WA as I would have liked. That´s life! I wish you success, anyway. Here is the best place for training, mentoring and support. Best Alan

Hi Pernilla, Thank you very much for the follow and nice to meet you here at WA. You live in a beautiful country, and are from a beautiful one also. I travelled in Sweden a few years ago on a short tour on a tilting train from south to north. I wish you success and happiness in 2018! Best Alan

I used to love driving through Slovenia on my way to Croatia and onwards...I still remember clearly stopping in at the last gas station prior to leaving the country to get a meal and have some of their fresh and tasty coffee.

I have met many nice people there, and at that time it was super cheap! I also remember carrying like 15 different kinds of money as I traveled, prior to the Euro (that was a pain hehe)...

It sounds like you have built a pretty nice life since leaving Dubai! Congrats for that...Enjoy the holidays, it will be pretty there in Slovenia this time of year!

Cheers!
Dave : )

Hi Dave, yes Slovenia is a lovely little country. Where I am located it has snowed already, so its very pretty now. The cost of living is reasonable, and it is in the euro zone now so quite easy currency exchange across Europe. In Dubai I enjoyed running and triathlon which I still pursue, but its a lot more hilly where I am now (but fortunately not as hot). Best Alan

Hello Alan and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined and had a look round you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 380 blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Enjoy your day.

Hi Robert, Thanks very much for taking the time to write to me. Yes internet marketing is a new field for me and I am trying to find the right road. I will look at your blogs, because I want to find the best information available, and you clearly have a lot of knowledge and experience at this. There are lots and lots of pitches and sometimes it can be distracting, and some of the offers are not things which i want to involve myself in. Sorting the wheat from the chaff can be quite difficult at times:-)

Yes there are a lot of pitches within WA itself and the highest percent I would totally ignore.
There are however one or two gems to be found among the rough.
Its up to you to find them and of course entirely up to you if you act on them.
Best to get stuck into the training and concentrate on laying the foundations for your business.
Plenty of time to look into other things after that.
Onwards and Upwards.
Robert

Welcome to WA - lots to learn here- stay focused - go through the Certification Courses first - you will get confused or frustrated from time to time - ask lots of questions - people are here to help you. 

HERE ARE 3 WA'ers Training Posts - they helped me - one is vocabulary you use here - one is a detailed use of your dashboard to find anything you will need - one is a plug-in to add to WordPress - that will help you build your sties. Hope they help - they did me This one I wrote - deals with how to "close" for the result you want. Stay with it - you don't need a wish of good luck - you need a plea to study the material and stay at it no matter what - it will change your life and hopefully the people you touch with your message.

Good Morning Alan,

I can see from your profile story you know already quite a bit.
Here at WA, you will find Certification course helpful in learning all the tricks of the trade. Then there are lots of nice people who will help you in case of need.
I always say this to the new people I meet here. Have a look at my WA post on the Spanish priest and the world library, you will find amazing documents which are a good source when writing posts.
Thank you for the follow and all the best.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hi Kyle
Thanks very much for the contact. Can i say how pleased I am that I found your company (by chance). I feel really at home here already, and I appreciate your ethical approach to things. I do have a problem with selecting a niche, as I have a number of possibilities. Firstly I have some physical products which I want to market, such as hand made carpets from Azerbaijan, also hand-made shoes from Italy, also natural remedies from India. I envisage problems with exchange rates/pricing and shipping with these sort of things.
To keep things simple, I thought perhaps my niche should be in information products to start with, so that I can minimise the risk and maximise the profit, just until I get the hang of things. I appreciate if you have to much on your plate to answer me, so I will sort it out as I work through things. Best Alan

I'm really glad that you found our company as well. We are the most respected, most comprehensive platform in the industry and I know you're to love it here.

You can definitely market your own products and services, but I recommend that you focus on the content and framework elements first (which require your website).

I have spent some time breaking down the process in the most simplistic way possible. Success online is at the core a 4 step process and I have broken them down within this video: Broken, down, the process looks like this:

Step 1: Choose your niche
Step 2: Build your website/content
Step 3: Get rankings in search engines (leads to traffic)
Step 4: Monetize your traffic (the make money part, through affiliate programs, etc!)

This applies in absolutely every niche and as you work through the training here at WA, you are going to be walked through this exact process. This is fundamental for ANY success online.

If you have any further questions let me know Alan. :)
