About Andrew-74
Joined February 2015
Hi, I'm Andrew. I have been a part time internet marketer for over five years now whilst still working a full time job that I hate. I started looking into the many ways of making money online several years ago and started off like many of us do by simply getting ripped off and scammed whist trying out the latest method. I fell into the trap of jumping from one technique to another until I finally realized that I wasn't getting very far. Fortunately I don't quit very easily and as a result I can say that I am one of the lucky ones that has managed to make a good return from my investment of time online.

I joined Wealthy affiliate as a premium member because in the past I have concentrated my efforts on small niche websites, review sites and promoting affiliate products via social media and PPC. I am now looking to build a substantial authority site and ethical online business whilst helping others do the same. Wealthy Affiliate seems like the perfect platform for me to do this.

I sincerely hope you will join me on my journey and I look forward to working with you.

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for the follow ! It's good to hear your efforts have paid off. I'm still plugging away and I am also too stubborn to quit. I agree the WA platform is solidly layed out and there's so much value in the community aspect that it really helps keep me on track and working towards my goals.

Cheers

Thanks Dan! My effort has paid off, but nowhere near what I would need to do this full time. Getting to that point is still proving to be extremely difficult.

Hi Andrew, many years ago I went through the same experiences as you. However, I did not give up either. Now we know better:)

Good for you with your future plan. An authority site will take more time to see results. You know that though so don't give up on it.

Delighted to be with you on your journey!

Best wishes,
Ben

Hi Andrew wanted to talk to you. You have been doing this for 5 years I hope it's working for you. I'm new at this. I'm retired at this time and am working at my own pace it easier on me. Just hoping it will work out. Have no idea what i'm doing but trying hope you meet your goals

Hi there. Thank you for your message. This has been working out for me but I'm still working a full time job on top of this! Making money online is very possible with what you learn here, but in my experience it can be very up and down in terms of reliable income.

Working at your own pace is the best way to go about it. Everybody starts out not knowing what to do. The key is to keep moving forward, building a little at a time.

Thank you for inviting me to follow! It has been quite overwhelming since I joined here a couple of days ago, not the least am I impressed by the sincerity of the people in this community. We are all uniquely different, coming from different backgrounds, but deep down we are all on the same journey. I came here by discovering WA through reviews, and once here, I like what I see. I will update my profile in the coming days and weeks, presenting my work. To me, the potential here is a new experience, a new route, so I will take one step at a time. I have never before felt motivation like now to get to know people in an online community, which oftentimes is not as convincing as this one. I look forward to this!

Hi there! You have the right approach. Just take things one step at a time. WA looks a bit daunting at first, but once you get used to the layout and you know what you are doing, it gets a whole lot easier. The main thing is to keep moving forward with the training. Just take it steady.

Hi Andrew. I liked your training on adding Banner Ads to my blog. However, it only answered part of my dilemma. Your training showed how to add Banner Ads "to the sidebar", but when I used Widgets to add my Banner Ads, it placed the same exact Banners on EVERY PAGE of my Blog. By "every page" I mean the pages accessed by the Header Tabs Menu of my site, NOT Blog Post pages/posts. What I want to do is place different Banner Ads on all the different site pages. Someone told me this could be done, but I don't know. Can YOU address this, at all? Please advise, thank you.

This isn't something that I have done myself, so can't really make any recommendations at this time. I would imagine that there may well be some kind of plugin that could help you achieve this? I would perhaps look for some kind of banner rotator plugin. If I come across anything that will do this I will let you know. Have you tried asking the community here?

Thanks for your response here Andrew. I believe I have since found out that my WP Theme only has one Right Sidebar. It may not be possible to do what I want. I'm OK with it for now. I can ask about a Plugin later, if I need to. Thanks for your input.

Hi Andrew.
Smart move going premium right away. With your experience having access to your own domains should better serve your purpose. I can't get over how much I have in common with many here in the community. My first introductions to e-commerce where costly lessons but I wouldn't be deterred. WA and my friends here have really offered the tools and support to manifest my inspiration online. Enjoy your experience!

Yes, I think many of us have had similar experiences before joining Wealthy Affiliate. I just hope that we can all find what we are looking for here.

Good morning to you Andrew my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. You know I started out the same way and spent way more money than I ever made. I had to train myself. then I found WA and started reviewing the training that I never had. Turns out I trained myself fairly well even though my websites never got any traffic. After joining WA, my websites are getting traction so the training does work.

I look forward to working with you and helping each other. I am following you back. I wish you much success in your journey.

Hey my names Brandon I will be attending college in less then a month. Im looking forward to continuing to develop my website part time through college and hopefully make some more sites. I am in the preliminary stages of making my site. My websites up and running with content, once I get enough traffic I want to be able to sell gym products off my site through affiliate websites. Right now I am stuck on getting traffic to my site and getting it ranked in google. Is there any advice you can give me specifically on how to build better content directly about my niche and website. Im really trying hard to get with website off and running and know it will take time! this is my website:
gym-essentials.com
Thank you very much,
Brandon

Andrew-74 Premium
Hi Brandon, thank you for your question. I have had a quick look at your website and can see that you are off to a good start but a few areas need a bit of tweaking. In the beginning when a website is brand new Google understands that there wont be a lot of content on your site. At first you wont get a lot of attention from Google until you have built a decent amount of quality content. After looking at your site I would firstly look at the presentation of the content that you have. Try adding some images, especially where you have large blocks of text. Google wants to see text, images and video so try to make your content as rich as possible with as many elements as you can.

You will get ranked when you have built more content. My advice would be to make the pages look more appealing that you already have by adding images. Then concentrate on building around 10 posts over the next 2 or 3 weeks and interlink them. As you build your pages and posts you should build links that internally link to more of your posts. When you link to one of your posts, you should use keywords that you want to rank for. For example if you have a post on treadmills your link might say "treadmill reviews". This makes navigation better for both Google and your viewers.

Traffic will come with time but you will only get traffic if you are building regular posts. The more content you create on a regular basis the better. Take a look at this for more information on how often you should post content for good rankings.

Hi Andrew,

The first part of your profile, the part about trying different things and losing a lot of money sound very much like my beginning, and, though I have hopefully gotten out of the losing money by wasting it on scams stage, I still have a real long way to go and still trying to cut out completely the hopping all over the place thing, i still fall into that, unfortunately, every now and then. I still have too many things but that's partly because I fell too often for the getting a so-called expert coach and the perfect site now I have too many websites but I keep trying to make something of them because I spent so much money on them. I have managed to figure out my top priorities but there are too many top priorities so I still need to do a better job at time management and re-prioritize. You are way ahead of me I have only been trying to make money online for almost 1 year but I don't see myself giving up either. Your intro for WA gives me hope for myself.
Thanks Andrew, and it's nice to meet you!

Hello Barbara. What a pleasure to meet you too! There are many people like you and me Barbara who have sadly started their journey being conned and ripped off. I am trying to make good of that in a way by warning others of the scams I have experienced in my main website.

I can understand exactly what you mean when you talk about jumping from one thing to another and having too many websites! I've been there and have seen many others go down the same road too.

If I could give you some advice it would be to take a look at the websites that you own and put them down to a learning experience. Those websites have taught you everything that you know about building sites. I bet with each website that you have created you will have gotten a little better each time. But it's hard to manage multiple website and you really need to concentrate on just one. Working on just one website until you get it right and start earning from it is the best thing you can ever do.

There was a point where I was managing about 20 sites! It was impossible for me to maintain that. I now work on just one main website and put all my effort into that. Its a far better approach than trying to juggle everything all at once.

I wish you the best of success Barbara! Let me know if I can help you further.

Regards,

Andrew

Hi Andrew,

I'm happy to join you on this journey. I'm in a very similar position where the shiny objects that used to get me, are now losing their sparkle.

Now I am committed and focused. Affiliate marketing is a fantastic platform to learn about business, and has so much scope for expanding down the line.

I'm loving it so far, and loving that my journey of learning and earning has just really started.

Best wishes to you Andrew,


Jules

Thanks for the follow back and best of luck to you in this new venture. I too have been scammed, but at least, with me, I didn't have the money to keep investing, especially in the Stores Online Scam. They did get me for a little over $3,000 and I received absolutely nothing in return. To top it off, they figured I still owed them over $4,000! Oh well!
