About Bald Eagle
Joined November 2006
Born and raised in Rhodesia (now called Zimbabwe) before settling and working in Johannesburg, South Africa I eventually uplifted my family to settle in New Zealand - The Land of The Long White Cloud.

And it was here, during my struggles to continue with my career as a financial adviser, that I discovered Wealthy Affiliate, Kyle and Carson (their names always seem to appear in that order!) and Internet Affiliate Marketing - back in November 2006.

I was not one of WA's success stories. :( And subsequently gave up my membership in 2017.

Kyle and Carson recently reached out to former members and asked me if I wanted to give it another go - so here I am.

I have been out of the loop so long I don't know where to start.

I see a lot of members are promoting WA and I don't think I can do that with a clear conscience - so where to from here?

I truly admire those who are making in excess of $5000 per month through IM but I have no idea how they are doing it.

PPC was my most successful venture but then I got the infamous Google Slap and was banned for life because of something I had no control over.

So here I am, for a wee while anyway. Let's see if there is anything that will finally switch the light on.

I have decided to start from scratch - with the certification course.
Hence the new profile pic (do you like it? :) ) and the updated BIO.

See you at the bank ...

Thank you for the return follow.

Interesting profile bio and whether success or not, at least you have tried to give it a go. Although you have some knowledge from the past, try a different niche as a start. You should know that things do change especially in this climate - its very up and down and appears that no-one know which way it is going.

It has been going like this since 2005/06 and not improving either - welcome back :)

My pleasure Zed.

I was surprised to see I wasn't following you in the first place as I have read your posts with great interest over the past few months, and find your advice practical and honest.

I will be in touch as I can certainly do with some help.

I am currently shifting a few things on my site.

For example I want to change some of my posts to pages and trying to work out how.

I assume the only way is to copy and paste, keeping the URL and everything else the same, deleting the original post and then publishing the newly created page?

That is part of today's goals.

All the best.
Lawrence

Basically, yes ...

Two things ...

The URL could be different too, depending on your site architecture

Why? Because usually the blogroll is something like

yourdomain/blog/title

and the page would be

yourdomain/title

Also, if those posts are already indexed by Google, you'll have to

1. request a URL removal for each post = Google Search Console -> Fetch as Google -> removal request

2. When you're doen, you'll have to create and submit a new sitemap

I didn't think of doing that with Google.

Welcome back! If you have made a effort to return you should try to refresh your website content. Many things have changed on the internet and the net users are younger than in the past. Capturing their interest may be your gold mine. Obviously you know what works if you had some prior success. Now adjust your focus on a fresh new target audience.

Wishing you renewed success,

Yes, It is a great picture.

I hung around WA for six months looking for the scam. During that time I completed my first website and started promoting it. I never found the scam and have no hesitation in recommending WA to friends who want to learn about IM.

So far as I am concerned WA comes about as close to the perfect IM training as you can get. Kyle & Carson provides the core training and the members supplement that with their blogs and their their own training.

I am making money by providing services to local busines. My goal is to use IM to create residual income. I have yet to monetize my websites, but that is because I'm still building traffic.


Take the certification course step by step and implement what you learn. Commit to a year of consistent work and I expect you will see positive results.

My mistake was being to impatient, jumping around to learn what I thought I needed to know and trying to manage to many websites at one time and not doing any of them justice.

Welcome back. The income potential of IM is unlimited, but it will take time for it to catch on.

Think about being on online financial instructor rather than advisor. I, for instance, would like to learn how to trade options with minimum risk.

Hiya Bill.
Thanks for your comments.
I have been out of the financial thing for so long and it really doesn't float my boat anymore for a number of reasons so I won't be going that, albeit obvious, route. :)
Way more interesting and exciting things to do that I will enjoy.
Liked your site BTW and wish you the best of luck with it.

Welcome back, Bald Eagle. I agree that starting from scratch is the way to go since you're probably pretty rusty, having been out for awhile.

I am doing the certification course, too. I am not going to do Bootcamp and promote WA until I finish that. I don't want to go too many different directions at once.

I think the affiliate programs are where people are making a lot of their money. I am planning to use some of those on my website so people can buy the products I'm describing (dance boots and shoes at the moment) by clicking on a link, and I'll get a commission from the company that they buy them from. I haven't learned how to do that yet, though. I think it's in Level 3, which I'm ready to start now.

Thanks for following me back. Better get to bed now.

Have a great weekend.

That is very kind of you and I will try to help where I can but like you I am also learning.
I think the best thing to do is to do the courses and follow each step and try not to think about making money - and certainly do not put a time frame or expectation of when sales will come in.
This is definitely not a "get rich quick" system. Slow and steady is the secret.
All the best

Hi Lawrence
Welcome back.
What seems to work best for us is to follow the Certification course (green box to the left) and to pause the video, then do what Kyle has done, then play another piece of the video, pause and do it.
I often fall into the trap of just watching the videos - yes, I learn A LOT, but that is not what is going to bring in the money, it is only the action that I take on what I learn. So I hope that this little trick will help you as well.
Feel free to ask if there is anything that I can maybe help you with.

Welcome back! I hope you find your niche and thrive in IM. I tend to learn more from my failures than I do from my successes. Have you ever moved your PPC skills over to other platforms? I know FB has paid advertising - just an idea. I see you made it past the first month because you just left me a very constructive review. I really appreciate you doing that - and if you ever need any help, just ask.

Thanks but I am not as optimistic as you about this.
I was previously a member from 2006 until earlier this year and after many attempts at just getting one niche to make me just $100.00 per day I decided to chuck it in.
Kyle and Carson have been on a drive to recruit former members and have offered a low first month.
Their e-mail promised to help - I will be calling them out on that - this time round otherwise I will be gone once the first month is up.
In this day and age making $100.00 should not be too difficult.
Oh and I am NOT in the "Make Money Online" niche.
Are Kyle and Carson losing members - is that why the drive to recruit oldies?
Cheers
Lawrence
Reply
FTurner8032 Premium
I have no idea about whether or not WA is losing members. That is not really something I need to concern myself about. I need to do all I can to make myself a little better at this every day.

For whatever it is worth, I am sorry that you have not had a good previous experience here. However, you know that there are many people that have made good money here and there is no reason that you cannot do that as well.

I have not reached the goals I have set for myself, but I am striving to do that and I will NEVER give up trying. The only sure way to fail is to quit.

Good Luck Lawrence, I hope you find the success you are looking for. God Bless.

Hi Lawrence

This came to my attention:
> Are Kyle and Carson losing members - is that why
> they drive to recruit oldies?
They are marketers who practice what they preach and they lead by example. Marketing 101 teaches (when I used to study) that it is only good practice to reach out to previous customers / members, for whichever reasons they may be only ready to utilize the opportunity that you have to offer, the second time around.

WA is constantly improved, so it just make sense to give previous members an opportunity to come back - just maybe those members are now in a better frame of mind than previously, and maybe something that is new on the training explains something better that would make the penny drop for them.

So In my books, that would explain why they would have send an email out to all previous members.

Hope it helps to shed a different light on it.

Hi Lawrence... Thanx for the follow.

I see that you have been with WA for a long while. I have a question for you... I noticed in one of your comments below that you said that you don't use WA's website builder, nor do you have any websites listed here. Is there a reason why you're not using their services? I'm asking because I just want to make the best choice for web building.

have a great day : )
Reply
Bald Eagle Premium
Oopsssidaisy is a phrase I haven't heard for years! My dad used to say it all the time.

You are observant and yes there is a reason for not using siterubix.

When I first started I used NVU (pronounced NView) to build my website and the website builder here only came in later.

The learning curve on NVU was so steep for me that there was no ways I was going to learn another system. It wasn't WordPress in those days and believe me I found it tough.

Pretty much the same reason with hosting.

By the time WA introduced free hosting I already had a number of sites hosted by HostGator and feared that I would lose them all by moving them.

It only costs me $9.00 per month for as many sites as I want. Moving them would cause me stress. $9.00 is cheaper than stress!

There is one other benefit that makes me feel comfortable and that is I am not totally reliant onWA for everything - silly I know but there you go.

Hope that helps
Reply
oopsssidaisy Premium
Hi Lawrence... Thank you for the follow up on my question.

I understand the stress factor. I closed down my personal portfolio website to rebuild it here and I'm a lil concerned about the loss of time, ranking, and validity of my site during this transition. After the re-build I'm still a bit undecided on whether I should host it here or on Host Gator.

I've been known to leave my mark on tartwork I create for folks by intentionally putting some simple faux pas into their design. Sometimes it's noticed and sometimes it's not and sometimes happy lil accidents happen that seems to enhance a design... hense the nic name oopsssidaisy.

have a great day : )

Hello Beate. I had 22 very happy years in Jhb. Loved the place and was sad to leave but have no regrets.
Nice to see South Africans on here - I know the exchange rate can be off putting but on the plus side you get paid in proper money too.
Good luck and shout if you need a hand. I don't know everything but might save yo some time when you are stuck.

Yes we do use
mate" just as much as the Aussies. I only pointed it out because "dwown under" refers to Oz not New Zealand.

Hey Bald Eagle, my name is Jeff. Nice to meet you, and thanks for the follow.

What part of New Zealand are you in? I had the pleasure of spending an amazing 2 weeks there traveling from the south island (Queenstown) all the way up to the North Island (Aukland) and had one of the best trips of my life. The scenery, hiking, surfing, kayaking, food, and people was such an incredible experience.

Take care and I wish you much success.

Jeff

Thanks for the follow. Welcome back to WA. I sometimes wonder how long people stay with WA, besides the top 10 producers.
Reply
Bald Eagle Premium
Its an interesting thought but one that is easy to answer.
The way that it is structured here there really is no reason to ever leave.
Besides the obvious by way of tools and info etc. many peeps use the hosting, keyword tool etc and to get this somewhere else costs money.

But here's the thing - the clincher for life.

Promote WA and once you have 3 sign ups you are paid to stay - your commission exceeds your subscription.

I have struggled with obtaining those 3 people. I have promoted endlessly, to the best of my ability.

Dear Bald Eagle,

You were right on with your comment about the fact that I have gone down the WA Affiliate Bootcamp pathway - and it's the wrong school for me right now. Another WA member pointed out I can add WA as an affliiate without making WA the focus of my site which it is not. All is so much clearer now. A BIG THANK YOU! I can now return to my idea of simply blogging about California. I am much happier tonight.

Yes, you must do a web site too. I bet you would make a great WA coach as you quickly spotted my problem and you have seen the site evolve as well as the internet, over the years you have been a member.

All the best to you!

Hello Bald Eagle
Thanks for your msg. I finally made my first $ last month. Had been trying since June 06!
I owe it to K & C and the 8 week action course. I too was a financial adviser but I dropped my license after I had my heart by-pass. I am still a partner in a FA practice so the "day job" is still paying well.

If you havn't taken K&C's 8 week course and even if you have I would advise you to take it again!

Prosperity to us all!

David
