Hi my friends!

Alex here, from Brazil. I've 37 years old, and I live with my wife Anna, and my daughter Giovanna (3. 5 years old).

I must say that I am online seller since 2010. Prior to that, I was an ordinary employee. I worked for almost 14 years in the technology (1996-2010). After that, I decided that working at home would be better, to have more quality of life.

I think I can contribute a little to the community. Since 2010, I successfully created two online stores, and with these two stores have a 5 digit monthly income, working from home. But today, this business model is not scalable. Today, I have to have some employees working for me (all of them in their own homes), because I have many tasks to fulfill: call center, logistics, inventory management, product manufacturing, supplier management, and other things take all my time. So working with affiliate marketing today is my highest priority.

Please guide me about the next steps, or rather the first step. I see that the environment of the community is great, with lots of choices. I can see a “Start Here”. I think it would help a lot.

Best regards

Alex

Hey Alex, u have given very feasible goals....and it represents your practical thinking...keep up the good work
Too funny. I thought your answer to number two was \$15, and because of my skepticism, I was ready to agree with you XD I really hope this works out for both of us. Good luck to you!
That is great, now go for it. Good Luck!
Hey Alex,
I beieve you can accomplish your goals. I am rooting for you.
Hi Alex,
I'm really glad to see that you have added your goals to this discussion. Now that you have set your goals, you now have something to work towards. Since you have some experience in online sales this will give you a head start.

The training will show you how to setup the foundation for your business and you will be able to scale your business from there. Talking off of personal experience I can tell you that with lots of hard work these goals can be reached and likely exceeded if you are able to spend 4-6 hours per day at this.

I would recommend that you take your time when you go through the training and if there is something you don't understand please let me know and I will explain it to you. Stay plugged into the community and keep us updated on your progress.

With all the help and support, training and tools available to you it will be impossible for you to fail. I am here to help you reach these goals as well as the entire WA community. Let us know if you have any questions going forward and we would love to answer them for you.

Hi Alex, thanks for the follow, and welcome to WA. GReat, you've already got a good foundation re online business. Affliate marketing should be easy for you then. Just hop in the courses, and away you go! All the best, and we're just a click a way for any query.
Hi there Alex!

You are entitled to a very BIG, WARM WELCOME to our friendly and helpful Wealthy Affiliate (WA) Community (way over 10,000 members).

Without question, you have a very nice and unique profile – telling us that you have created two online stores and more.

Should you have the time, just click on the blue freedomforus above to see my profile, niche and blogs. You will see that we have one or more success traits in common.

I would appreciate knowing if you think my profile is a wee bit too long. Also, would you mind sharing a little more detail with me as to why you joined Wealthy Affiliate? If I can help I will give you my best shot.

Thanks freedomforus Larry

PS: I am a daily practitioner and promoter of the free and rewarding “Pay It Forward” concept. Are you aware of its power and all the win-win benefits?
Hi Larry,

It has been very valuable to be with you from the first minute. Build friendships, to me, is priceless.

I know the concept of "Pay It Forward". I visited their website to read more about it and found it amazing! I think that is something people like to do something for free, as part of an initiative to build a better world, right?

Your profile is amazing. I have a Brazilian friend who lived in California for 1 year, to make your "spoken English" even more fluent. I do not have the same knowledge of the English language - I can understand written words only, for now.

I think that you are a humorous guy. Legal! :)

I liked your profile for several reasons, but perhaps one thing that caught attention was his knowledge of mobility equipment. This is definitely an area that benefits people. This is something that helps people with profoundly limited movement. And I think that helping people is the essence of life.

I decided to join the WA community to create a business where I can generate passive income, and work as much as possible without me. Just so I can have free time to do other things that I consider important in life. For example, in 2005, I visited patients in hospitals. I read the Bible to them, I helped feed them, I helped the nurses in some things. Or I just took a few minutes of company for those people who had no one. This simply fed my soul, if I may say so.

Currently, I work almost 15 hours a day with my two online shops. It takes all my time. The time I have left is only to sleep and feed me, and I still need to give some time to my little daughter. I really got to a point where I found a crossroads. I'm working at home, which is wonderful, but ironically, I'm a "prisoner" in my own thing. Have to deal with several activities, products, inventory, employees, suppliers and customers. This is simply too much for me, and it's not exactly what I want when I thought of entering the world of online income.

To change it is to decide to enter WA Community, and create a new business, perhaps the ZERO, and generate enough money to support my family without having to work all day for that income. Perhaps, therefore, I can go back to being more useful to the world, and do things that will give more meaning to my life, where it is possible to contribute more to the lives of other people, making them happier and collaborating to make this world a better place to live.

Hugs

Alex
Welcome to WA Alex. I am Kyle, co-founder and also an active part of the community here at Wealthy Affiliate. If you ever need anything or you get "stuck"?, let me know as I will be more than happy to help you out.

I do suggest that you start out with the Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1) course. Work your way through this training and take action on the lesson tasks. This is a foundational course that will get you building valuable online assets in just your first few days.

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

Anyways, I hope to see more of you in the coming days here at WA! :)
Hi Kyle,

Thanks for the welcome! I actually have a very positive first impression.

Although I am already an online seller, I think that to succeed in online marketing, skills are a little different compared to sell with a traditional online store. It is likely that different skills are needed, though perhaps some skills are common to both ways to get online income. Well, I'll find out here, along with all friends.

So now I'm taking the first step and follow our recommendation, beginning with the study and practice of level 1. :)
The skills of selling are a little different, but the principles remain the same. You are going to learn all about this here and at the core of it, you can become very successful within ANY niche if you can help people.

Glad you are enjoying WA thus far Alex and I really look forward to working with you and seeing through your success in the online world. Get in touch with me if you need anything else.
Hey Kyle, thanks! Helping people is how I see the purpose of life. Perhaps it is the reason of life. I'm on board with you, and now updating my signature for the "Premium" mode :)
Awesome, it is a good direction to head with whatever you do. Helping folks is not only gratifying, it is the most honest and most powerful way to create a very successful business! :)

Hi Scott,

For you, thank you! You have opened the gateway to WA Community. I must say I read other Reviews, users of this community. But his testimony seemed more engaging, more willing to help. I think his words reflected more intensely your goal.

Scott, I have a question about Jaaxy: I usually use Market Samurai and Google Keywords Tool (from Adwords) for keywords. How could I be convinced that Jaaxy may be best option on these other tools?

Best regards,

Alex
Hi Alex,
I'm glad that you found my WA review helpful and engaging and I'm glad that I was able to lead you to such an awesome place like WA. I know how it was when I was searching for a way to make money online. I needed all the help I could get and now that I am making a pretty decent income I want to give back and help other people get to where I am.

I will give you my personal thoughts about Jaaxy and tell you my experience with other keyword tools. I tried using market samurai and I found it very confusing and hard to use. I also didn't like the fact that you had to install it to your computer to use it. I messed around with it for a few days but I eventually moved on to Jaaxy and I instantly fell in love with it lol.

The Google keyword tool is a pretty good tool if you want to do a PPC campaign, but if I want to do research for a review or an article I wouldn't recommend using it.

Here is what I think makes Jaaxy the only keyword tool you will ever need.

It's web based which means there is nothing for you to install on your computer and you can access it anywhere you have a internet connection.
It's simplistic design and easy to use interface sets it apart from all other keyword tools I have used in the past.

Not to mention all the extra features that are included like the site rank feature which I use on a daily basis. You can find out where your site is ranked in Google in seconds using this nifty feature.

You can get up to date accurate search results for any keyword delivered to you instantly within 30 secs to 1 minute.

I have gotten quite a few first page rankings from highly competitive keywords that I get lots of traffic from daily.

Out of all the keyword tools I have tried in the past none of them even came close to what I was looking for. I don't want you to take my word for it Alex. I want you to try it out for yourself and get your first 30 searches for free at www.jaaxy.com and see what a great keyword tool it really is.

There is also the WA keyword tool that comes included in your membership if you aren't ready for Jaaxy yet. This is a pretty basic keyword tool that is idea for people who are just starting out in Internet marketing.

I would highly suggest Jaaxy if you want an up to date and accurate keyword tool. I hope this has helped you out Alex and answered your question. If you have anymore questions or need a hand with anything please let me know and I would love to help you out.
I look forward to your reply and I will talk to you soon.
Scott
