About AnnieCollyer
Joined November 2017
I am a mother and grandmother, now retired. I have owned my own real estate business in the past. I started out as a stockbroker and technical analyst on Wall Street. There have been a lot of experiences over the years.
In the midst of all the roles in life, one thing that has persisted for me has been the stimulation and growth and personal satisfaction that come from creative pursuits. Whether it was putting on a birthday party for my kids, or learning international and assorted American ways of cooking, or designing gardens and landscapes, or buying an old decrepit house and redesigning and redeveloping it, I have always had the joy of bringing creativity and art to the equation.

Today, I am active in my community as a volunteer. I took up painting with acrylics and pastels a few years ago, and love it! I can get lost in a painting for hours and forget to eat! Which is not such a bad thing either.

It is my joy to share the influences, the benefits and helpful hints on tools, equipment and set up with others, as they develop art and creative approaches to living. Let's all grow and explore together!

Hi Annie, nice to hear from you. I look forward to getting to know you my new WA friend. Sorry about the delay in responding but I am a bit slow at the moment. Trying to do too many things at once.

I see you have a website up and running. You might want to think about putting the links here on your profile page.

You do this by going to the right of your profile page, down to the bottom where it says 'Follow me on' and click on it. Put your website URL and any social media URLs you have (and want to add). This way people like me can hop in, visit and leave a comment. This makes it easier for us to follow you as this will be a direct link. And extra traffic is always welcome.

If you have time I would love it if you visited one of my websites and left a comment on a post, any one will do. The site addresses are fantasy-sci-fi-vision.com & https://workingonthewildside.com.

As soon as you have a website link here let me know so I can return the comment.

Keep working hard, having fun and don’t forget to ask questions.

A very nice boss once told me, ‘Helen, when you ask a silly question everyone else breathes a collective sigh of relief because they don’t have to!’ And that is so true. No question is silly so ask away.

If I can’t help I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Now let us keep in touch.

Ciao
Helen

Hello Annie and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined last year you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep up with the training and keep referring to it but if you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 400+ blogs I have published within WA.

You can always get in touch with me as well.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.
Robert

I learned about internal links and how they help my SEO ranking!
FINALLY Finished!
I went through everyone of my first blogs and reworked them. I put in lots of internal links so they hang together! It is great to have 36 posts so I can do those internal links.
It feels like the blog is cohesive now!
I am loving this training!

Thanks for the follow! I am returning a follow. Read your profile. In my free time, I love taking photographs of outdoor nature scenes and having them printed as gallery wrap prints. One of these days, would love to learn painting with acrylics to add highlights to the canvas prints. Trusting 2018 will be great for both of our pursuits.

Try them, you'll like them! I have found my photography has gotten better since I started painting.

Thank you! Not all activities in the community are fun, though. I chair our local budget committee and that gets some conflicts going!

Very nice to meet you Annie!
Thank you for the follow and I am following you back as well.
Let me tell you that we sure have some things in common. I am still a Real Estate agent. But I was also a chef for several years and love cooking. I love gardening and I also love peinting. I have always wanted to be financially independent and I think this is it. WA!
Best wishes for 2018!

Thanks for the Follow, Anne! I see that you enjoy painting. It's very relaxing, but I haven't done it in awhile. Over the years, I've done oils, acrylics, pen & ink, and pastels. It's true that you can easily lose track of time while painting---same is true of interacting and working on training in WA!!! :) I wish you much success!

Thank you Anne for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. As a Premium Member you are probably aware of the AWESOME and FREE WA Keyword Tool we have unlimited access to.

This is the keyword research tool I have used exclusively after I became a Premium member 4 years ago and it has helped me many times to find awesome keywords that have led to Google page 1 rankings.

When you have the time, I created very popular WA Training Tutorials, Part 1 and Part 2, on how to use the WA Keyword Tool for keyword research. If you have not seen it and would like to learn how simple it is to use and a little about keywords, click the below link. Again, when you have the time.

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! :)
Reply
AnnieCollyer Premium
I have a couple of ideas and would love your feedback...
1- Art Supplies= I have taken up painting in my retirement and really love it, haven taken online courses, buy my stuff online, and there are a lot of affiliate programs.
2- diet, exercise, recipes, paleo, HCG pros and cons, hormone replacement for seniors
3- Grandma's kitchen - recipes for seniors, for two, to do with the grands, for family holiday dinners, crafts and stuff for kitchen time with grands perhaps.

Your niche ideas are definitely viable directions for your niche. You need to choose one when starting out, what are you most passionate about?

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

AnnieCollyer Premium
Thank you, Kyle. I am going to start with AnniesArtSupplies.com. I have my first blog on there, can't wait to learn all the layout options, links, etc., so it begins to look more professional. And then get some affiliate partners! I am passionate about my own painting and want to help others get into it. I think it is an awesome way to express your self and helps give perspective on everything in our lives!

Hi there Anne! How's the training going? Are you enjoying WA?

I found this great video by Kyle I'm sure you'd be interested in, take a look: By now I'm sure you're beginning to grasp all the knowledge there are here in WA.

If you ever need help, just ask of course :)

We have many retired folks here at WA that decided to move into the online space to start a business online. What I can tell you Anne is that it is completely possible and you are going to be able to take any niche/interest and turn it into a full time business with some effort.

Everything you need is here to get you moving in the right direction including the support Anne , so just let me know (drop me a reply) at any time. :)

PS. I hope you have a very nice, relaxing and enjoyable weekend ahead!

-----------------------------------------------

If you enjoy Wealthy Affiliate, which I am sure you will, then you should consider going premium in the near future.

*And they wonder why I love WA so much* LOL !

-----------------------------------------------

I’ll leave you to it now Anne .
