About AOsmand
Joined November 2015
Hi everyone, its good to be here at Wealthy Affiliate. I Live in Cardiff in the UK and have a full time job, but have been trying to make a living with online marketing for a few years now but with nothing to show for it. I have bought more affiliate courses than i care to admit! It just seems that there is always a missing part of the training or a hidden cost.

I had a break from AM for a while and have now decided to try once more, thats when I stumbled upon Wealthy Affiliate. Im so pleased to be apart of the community here it looks fantastic, full of great training and support, everything you need all under one roof so to speak.

Im looking forward to getting started and meeting new people and making friends along the way.

All the best to everyone!

Great goals Andrew,

The first step to achieving success online is to set some goals and now that you have done this you can start working towards them. Your goals are absolutely achievable and realistic. Dedicate yourself to working through the training, taking action, and getting help when you need it.

I am personally here to help you and there are many others within the community that will reach out to help too.

You are already doing great, keep it up!

Hello Andrew From Cardiff, And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined and with your previous online experience you will no doubt know by now that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve and there will always be something new to learn.

You must keep referring to the training (it does get updated from time to time).

If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 500+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me a message anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

By the way I have friends in Port Talbot and try to get down a couple of times a year.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.

Have a great Monday.
Robert

Hey Robert thanks for following back. You have 500 blog posts here wow that’s insane! I’ll be sure to check them out.

I can’t believe you know people in port talbot what a small world. So you said you try and get down when you can does that mean you live up north?

Thanks again for the follow and encouragement/support all the best.

No probs Andrew and if/when you read my blogs make sure you choose the ones that will help you in conjunction with whatever training you are currently taking.

Also as a new member you may not be aware of this but it’s a good idea (only if you are interested in your rank within WA) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.

Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing else.

But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.

I'm Scottish and live in Edinburgh

Have a great day.
Robert

Hi Andrew and thank you for following me. I couldn't help but smile as I read your profile as it is like mine and what I chose to do an article on just the other day. Well, sort of anyway.....A different take on a review for sure. If you would like to see it for me I would be appreciative and of course, will return that favor. Just let me know.

Hey,

I like the direction you have taken, getting the reader to think about what they really want to achieve. thats a good angle, I also like the use of visuals with the fuzzy pencil, made me smile.

Just one piece of advice, for the following sentence:

"Can you see how effective that would not be... "

It would make more sense if you said:

"can you see how ineffective that would be..."

Apart from that great review.

If you would check out my site let me know what you think that would be awesome, its on my profile. thanks

Hi,

You asked a question from people living in the UK about registering with the HMRC? You only need to do that once you earn recurring incomes.

Seeing as so many wealthy people avoid paying their taxes by putting their money into secret offshore accounts I suggest that you only register once the money starts rolling in.

Andrew, 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 Andrew.

Hey Kyle,
thanks for the message. Im really enjoying the process of building my site, I'm taking slow things were starting to get a bit overwhelming and i am stuck for ideas of topics to talk about. I could do with you having a quick look at my site if you don't mind, to see if I'm heading in the right direction. Your feedback would be good.

just incase you decide to take a look : )

I think your website is set-up nicely thus far Andrew, one recommendation I would make is not making your "cons" so negative. Saying the content is "overload" will scare a lot of people away. It is by far the easiest and most streamlined approach to building a business online.

Instead you might want to say this.

The training teaches you how to properly build a business, but it takes work. It is not a get rich quick scheme, it shows you how to create a long term business.

Something to that effect.

Also, I recommend that you use more visuals within your content. Most people are visual by nature and when you create content, you should have associated images that reflect what you are talking about.

This will lead to more engagement, a higher reader rate, and as a result, more conversions.

Thanks Kyle really appreciate your feedback. Taken onboard your suggestions and will be making the changes post haste!
