About Allen-W
Joined January 2015
Hi! My name is Rob. My username is Allen-W since that's my middle name.

I'm a Christian, Husband, Father, Tech Engineer, Courseware Developer, Dad Joke Teller, Fisherman, Chess Player, and Friend.

Most of my content is on Social Media. I am on most major platforms as @dadjokesnmemes. Links on the right. Let's swap.

DadJokesAndMemes.com is my site about dad jokes. I make memes out of dad jokes and share them on Social Media and archive them on my site.

It's quite enjoyable, and since I am a father of two children, I am good at spotting corny jokes. I take the training from WA and apply it to build my joke site. I have fun and get to make memes and write jokes. That's it.

I've been with WA for quite, in two stints of Premium, actually. I left then came back because nothing else I could find was better than what's offered here.

I've learned quite a bit about keyword research and spread that into hashtag research.

My advice? Use WA to key in on what you need to learn and just do it. Hit me up if you get stuck.

Jim,
You are most welcome. :)

You have a BS in math, eh? I love math. I have two kids (9 and 15) and they're both good at math as well.

I have a BA in music, and two years of MM level studies at Hopkins. I loved the logic and pattern of music, and also double-majored in computer science for a while so I took a lot of math in college, but I don't use it much today (except to help my kids with their homework.)

Congrats on the great decision to go Premium! You will find a host of additional benefits with a premium membership, my favorite is the ability to build up to 25 websites, I've already built 2 and reserved a third in my name.

Allen, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Allen.

Thanks Kyle. I am reading through the article on understanding the customer purchase lifecycle.

I have selected several "longer tail" keywords, and used Jaaxy and alphabet soup to come up with about 50 keyword phrases/ideas that are human readable and meet Jay's "Is it a complete phrase one person would ask another about at a water cooler at work" litmus test.

Now I am nearly ready to start writing out some content.

I am quite happy with my new domain name, and how I am progressing.

Thanks so much for the comment, and I will absolutely reach out if I have any questions.

Thanks. I appreciate it. I already reviewed your WA Keyword tool training, and modified it to use Jaaxy, since I am a paid Jaaxy member. I do a couple of other things like cast a wide net for a lot of keywords during research, and then download the .csv and import it into LibreOffice so I can sort, and do additional data manipulation to find the best few keywords out of a large group.

jjannbach Premium
Reviews on Books? Are you serious? I have a suggestion for you...if you don't mind one from an avid reader. I get all of my books from "my local library" so it has where you are able to see (by your present checked out books) what they would recommend for you to read next. This creates a huge issue for me... one... if I have a book checked out it only recommends the author I am currently reading. So if I'm reading Janet Evonovich my list is everything she has written. Also what if I don't like what I'm reading... or what if I like the subject I'm reading about not just the author... do see where I'm going with this??? Because I can't explain it. I can't find a list of recommendations out there that are going to help me.
Here's what I think (I call this Janism) it's a term, look it up. (no joking but it's a goal to of mine to make it a term)
1. Based on a title you have read, here are a list of recommended books on that subject.
2. Based on the Author you have read, here are a list of """"
see where I'm going. I think you are going the right direction. And yes, it's all about what I want. It might not be popular with the masses but it might be something worth looking into. I would love a website like that.
Reply
Allen-W Premium
Thanks for the good ideas.

The good thing about chess is players LOVE owning nice chess sets. I believe I can make some good reviews by buying a few nice chessboards, video review them and write up a decent review. (What a perk! I get to buy myself a new chessboard)

I know of several reputable chess websites with affiliate programs for later when I get ready to monetize it.

There's also accessories (chess clocks, boards, pieces, etc.) that will ALL earn more commissions than discounted books on Amazon.

But I will be posting some of the book reviews because I own the books, so therefore I can get the content out quickly.

OK, back to the training for me. :)

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Allen!

Nathaniell here - you probably remember me from my site One More Cup of Coffee. I'm glad to see you've signed up and are ready to get started building your online business.

Right now, there are just two things you need to know.

1) Those who ask questions interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their goals. The support here at WA is the best in the internet marketing industry...please take advantage of it.

2) You can get started learning how to make money by doing your Level 1 Certification Course. Click on the green "Get Started Here" button or just click this link Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1).

And don't forget that you can also access me for 1-on-1 support by leaving a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/nathaniell or by responding directly to this message.

There are a ton of other features you have access to right now, but they are explained in your main training linked above. Your #1 job right now is to get started on the first lesson.

PS. Did you know that you'll already have your website built by lesson 4? Crazy, I know!


★ ★ ★ Access Your Bonuses! ★ ★ ★

I also wanted to let you know that if you join the premium membership in this 7 day window you'll get a TON of awesome stuff from me.

First off, you'll get a 59% discount ($19.95 for 1 month) on your membership. Twenty bucks for you first month of WA is an absolute steal.

☆ ☆ Bonus #1: Live Case Study 2 Part Webinar Series

Get access to a 2-Part-Series Live Case Study webinar. It's video series where a professional internet marketer creates a complete 'niche website'. All steps are included and thoroughly explained, including research, rank, content creation and monetization. Total length of the videos is 2+ hours

This will give you a broad overview of the type of site you will create on Wealthy Affiliate. I think it's always a good idea to know the direction you are headed before you start your journey.


☆ ☆ Bonus #2: Top 5 Newbie Mistakes And How To Fix Them

This includes some simple design tips, and answers to the most frequently asked questions by new WA members. This resource will help you bypass these common errors and get your affiliate website ready for making money.

____

If you have any questions at all, don't hesitate to ask questions in Live Chat or on the training modules. I think you'll be surprised at how many people want to see you get started on the right foot!

~Nathaniell

Allen-W Premium
Nathaniell, I signed up because your site review was very compelling. I am a seasoned marketer from the 1999-2001 era. I made a little less than 20k in about 18 months selling an ebook I wrote. So, it's a new chapter in my life and I want to work hard at this so I can have the financial freedom I desire for my family (wife and 2 kids).

Looking forward to learning how much has changed.

Allen

If you've been leaning IM for a while Allen, I highly recommend you look at WA's training with fresh eyes. You would be surprised to know all the bad information that gets passed around out there, usually from gurus trying to sell a product.

The first level of training might be a bit basic for you, but keep in mind it's targeted towards newbies. Explore some of the other training with the search bar, stop by in chat, and remember that you get full access to all of the modules and webinars this month for a pretty darn good price!

PS. Congrats on going premium so quickly! I'll be around if you need anything.
