About Arthurcrando
Joined September 2015
Hi. I'm a retired lawyer - now living in Hong Kong. I've written a few books - check me out on Amazon (Arthur Crandon - Deadly Election) -

http://amzn.to/204dWYR

I'm completely new to Affiliate marketing and computerphobic (is that a word?). But I'm very excited by all I read and keen to start. IS THERE ANYONE ELSE OUT THERE IN HONG KONG OR AM I THE ONLY ONE?

Really good to see that you've added some goals Arthur!

These are both realistic and achievable. Your time investment will be key to achieving these goals and you certainly are willing to invest the time :)

Take your time, take action on what you learn, and ask for help when you need it! There are many helpful folks within the Wealthy Affiliate community who have the answers you will be looking for. I personally look forward to helping out in every way I can.

Those are great goals Arthur and you can easily achieve them if you just follow the training step by step without trying to jump ahead of yourself and always remember to ask for help if you get stuck with anything!

Welcome to Premium Arthur. This is a great place to learn online marketing and you need to know very little about computers to succeed.

Hi Alan, I enjoyed your book very much. Is your book on doing ebooks available now?
Reply
Alan Hocking Premium
No I'm still working on that one.

I just published another book yesterday "It's All About the Money" which is available on Lulu.com as of today and should be on Kindle and all the other outlets soon.

How are your books doing?

Glad you're enjoying yourself here Arthur and please don't be afraid to ask if you need my help with anything!

Just remember that my time zone is Southern Spain so you might not always get an answer straight away :)

Thanks so much. I love sunny Spain. - I guess you're about 7 hours behind me in Hong Kong - Have you ever been to Hong Kong? I intend to "Go premium" but I must fund my paypal account first - I don't have a credit card. I'll fund my paypal on Monday.
If I start working on a website now without my own domain, is it easy to change it to my own domain when I have premium at the end of next week?

Yes absolutely!

It's a simple one click process and WA does everything for you.

Here's the full details on how easy it is:

Hi Alan, I'm sorry to bother you with this as it is a third party issue, but I'm trying to activate my pluins and getting stuck with wordpress. The message (copy attached) says to try again in a minute, but it has been like this for four hours for me - I can find nowhere on the wordpress system where I can actually send them this query and nothing in their support articles helps me - I'm anxious to move on to the next stage. This system won't let me send you a screenshot - here is what it says :
Whoops!
Something has gone wrong with our servers, and we’ve just been notified of the problem.
This will be fixed as soon as possible, so kindly reload in a minute and things should be back to normal.

Hi Arthur

This is definitely a problem with the server at WA

They have probably got it sorted out already but if not you will need to put a ticket in here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/support

Hello Alan. Thank you very much for this. - I'm still getting the same message - and the link you gave me will not let me send a message as I am not a premium member. Seems like I can't go further. I will fund my paypal account tomorrow, but for Hong Kong, Paypal banks in the US - so the funds must be transfered internationally and won't hit the account until Tues aft or Wed. I should be able to upgrade Wed at the latest.Disappointing I cannot go further now.

You should be able to activate the plugins that are there on your siterubix site as a free member or are you trying to install new plugins?

They do restrict adding new plugins by free members for security reasons

If you're just trying to active the ones that are already there it should work.

Keep trying or if you haven't done any work on the site yet maybe try deleting it and starting again.

You could also try leaving a comment on Kyles profile or sending him an email here: kyle@wealthyaffiliate.com

Things are much easier when you're a premium member.

Sorry can't be of much help with hosting issues as it's out of my hands

Hi Alan, It's akismet - I'm just following the system until I get much more experienced. I think its sorted now as I have had a welcome email from Wordpress. Its evening here now - I'll start on it again tomorrow - thank you so much for the handholding.
Reply
Alan Hocking Premium
Ahh okay yes sometimes Akismet is a problem because it needs to send an outgoing call to the WordPress. Com server for the set up and the WA servers block outgoing calls to remote servers for security reasons which sometimes affects Akismet.

It's sounds like it's sorted now though if you've had the welcome message.

Have a great evening and let's hope you can carry on tomorrow without any problems.

Hi Arthur and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.

You're going to love it here!

The Wealthy Affiliate Community is very lively and there's a great bunch of very friendly people hanging out here with an enormous amount of knowledge and experience in building successful online businesses and they are always willing to lend a hand to anybody who needs some help so if you get stuck with anything don't be afraid to ask questions.

The best place to get started is here: If you do have any questions you can drop by my profile here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/alan-hocking and leave me a message, or use the "Live Chat" where you will get answers very quickly.

I'm on there most days! :)

You can also ask questions within discussions, tutorials, blogs, or directly to other members on their profiles.

As you can see there is no shortage of help and support here at WA!

Remember to complete your profile by adding a picture and telling me a little bit about yourself so that I can work out the best way to help you move forward and achieve your goals.

There's a video to walk you through it here: JUST A QUICK REMINDER!
----------------------------------------------------

I know you're going to love building your free websites and being a part of the Wealthy Affiliate Community and I just wanted to remind you that you can stay on your free membership for as long as you like and there will never be any pressure for you to upgrade to a premium membership but I'd also like to remind you that you do have the opportunity to try out the full premium membership as well without breaking the bank!

If you do decide to try out the premium membership in the next seven days you will get the first month for just $19

That's a massive 59% discount on the normal price of $47 (There should be a timer set at the top of the page showing how much time you have left to claim your discount!)

For now though just have a good look around and enjoy yourself!

Let me know if I can help you out with anything else and I'll touch base with you again in a couple of days to see how you're getting on.

Alan Roy Hocking :)
