About AlexO1
Joined October 2017
Hello All!

My name is Alex Owens and I am a 21 year old UC Santa Cruz student new to affiliate marketing. A little about me, I am a former wrestler, hold an AAT in Political Science, and a Certificate in Leadership & Social Change, both from De Anza Community College.

Before this, I looked into drop shipping and set up a store through Shopify, but I saw it as too complicated and with no teachers or mentors. Now though, I have a small drop shipping store through Amazon, which was pretty easy to set up that now makes me a little bit each month. Otherwise, I am focusing all my energy on affiliate marketing.

I am hoping to get this up and running in my free time while attending class for my Bachelor's degree, so I can achieve my goal of traveling the world. If you ever get a chance, please check out my website. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile and remember to make it a great day!

Best,

Alex

Thanks for the follow, Alex. I've added you to my network and wish you all the best in reaching that "traveling the world" goal. I love your hiking sites because I love to hike myself, but I'm relatively new to it so have a lot to learn. Thanks for being a great resource on the subject!
Onward and upward!

Thank you for following me Alex; I will follow you back. I'm betting we can learn a lot from each other here in this vast community, looking forward to it.

I pick up a right amount of knowledge on Internet marketing from Wealthy Affiliate, and developed skills that were hidden deep within me I never knew were there. I'm sure you will also.

I know you're as busy as I am. I wanted to say thank you. If you have any questions, I'm here to help. May God bless you and be the light for your journey.

Hi Alex,

Thank you for accepting my invitation to network under WA and within its community.

To grow, I need more and more timely support as much as I could have from you and all other WA members despite knowing that less than 10% of its participants may excel, reflecting how well and hard they work and how smart they are.

So, patience and persistence + hard work are the keys to succeed in any business with no exception for affiliate programs.

Here I want to let you know I appreciate your continual generosity in offering support and help. Likewise, let me know if anything I can do for you and I will oblige to.

All the best to your success,



Chin

Hi Alex,
Thank you for saying hi. After a couple of days looking around the site I can already see that this is very different from anything I’ve seen. It’s got a great friendly feel about it. I am pretty sure I’ll upgrade to premium. Is it $49 every month after the first.

Thanks Adam.

AlexO1 Premium
Yes, WA is quite different from other sites. It is $49/month, but it is even less if you upgrade to yearly. Then it becomes $30/month or the $365/year. I am yearly, so it changes the dynamic a bit. I hope this helps you.

The most important thing is to keep writing articles, 3x a week. It can be really fun. You are doing something creative. It may not seem like you are making any progress, but you are. It will take time. I hope this helps you.

Hi Alex. Nice to e-meet you!
I bookmarked your website and will come back. It looks nice, and I'd like to read about National parks in CA, but am too tired right now. I've traveled many states and many countries of the world, but haven't been to California yet. Well, being stuck for a day in San Francisco on the way from New Zealand because of a snow storm in Boston does not count. :) The trip to CA is definitely at the top of my list. And unless I start making big money in my online business, camping might be the only affordable way to travel (again... like in my 20s :) )

I wish you great success in this new venture.

All the best,

~ Julia

Hello Julia,

Thank you so much for bookmarking my site. It is a very NICE compliment. You are the first among what will hopefully be many. Camping is an overlooked vacation. It is really therapeutic. You can get away from the world.

Like you said, CA is an amazing place for national parks. We have tens of them and all are splendid in their own way. I love it. Thank you so much Julia and I hope you MAKE it a great day!

Best,

Alex

Hello Alex,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun at WA. Thank you for adding me to your network. I followed you on all accounts ツ

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition to the Walkthrough called "After The Walkthrough". Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I just wrote my 102nd training for WA. I have categorized them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Thanks for adding me to your contact list. I am a late bloomer and graduated with a BA in Political Science and Sociology and German... loved it especially as I was the oldest student in the class at 65 years young.

Hey! we never too old to learn and designing my very own website for Dads gives me the greatest joy.

Wish you all the best at WA

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 Alexander,

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! Great to have you on board :)

You'll probably experience a bit of information overload in the first few days. There is a lot of training and resources in here.

I suggest you start with the Online Entrepreneur Certification: If you would ever get stuck, let me know. I'm here to help!

Cheers,
Ronnie
