About Barryw1
Joined July 2015
I am and have been into weight training, nutrition and overall health for about 20 years now. At one point, not now, I would check my training schedule to see if I would be able to make my friends' weddings or funerals or birthdays. You get the point.

I have leased a gym, worked and continue to work as a personal fitness trainer (ACE Certified) as well as retail management, insurance sales and several other endeavors. As of now I am semi-retired but could use some more income as most of us could.

My current focus is on continuing to raise my sixteen year old daughter by myself. Her mom, my wife, was involved in an accident that resulted in severe brain trauma. Not too personal I trust. In any case we do just fine. She is an amazing young lady.

I am here to learn and make some money. I would say extra money but what is extra. I have done online marketing in the past but lost my motivation several times. I was not making progress so I lost interest.

This time I have the time, the energy and some great instruction. I know there is money to be made online but it has to be earned by action in the right direction.

Here's hoping we all take action and all meet, no exceed, our goals.

Hi Berry, will definitely follow. Do you make money on clicks as well or you have to register with clicksure
Reply
Barryw1 Premium
I promote mainly make money online products. Like websites, training programs, keyword tools and such.

I affiliate with whatever I promotes uses. For example Affilorama use ClickBank so i go through that.

Good luck.

Barry you are listed as one of the teachers. I have a question, I want to know if I can use a domain that I bought before I signed up with wealthyaffiliates? Or do I have to buy one from siterubix?
Reply
Barryw1 Premium
Yes you can use it. You'll have to "switch it" from where you bought it to WA servers.

Use the question bar at the top of the page and key in something like point domain from "WHERE YOU REGISTERED" to WA.

EXAMPLE: Point domain from GODADDY to WA. You will get instructions.

Hope this helps. Anyone here is always glad to help.

Put your mind at ease and forget all your concerns. Go to the first lesson then complete the tasks at the end of it.

Then go to lesson two and repeat until you are done with all of them.

There are many avenues that you could take to promote whatever you choose to promote.

Pay Per Click, Organic SEO, Social Media, and many other ways to promote your website. All effective. Learn the best for you.

The lessons will explain all the options available to you then you can make an informed decision on which route to take.

Be patient as it takes time to master any new skill.

Good luck,

Barry

So you have done this before, lost interest, and now you have been back involved and with this company for about a year. What do yo honestly think about this? If you don't mind me asking, how much extra money have you been able to make and how many hours a week do you invest?
Reply
Barryw1 Premium
I have been here about 16 months now. I put in a lot of time and have from the beginning.

I do not have a job. This is my job.

I think that anyone that puts in the time and effort can make money with what they learn here. The key is to keep learning and doing.

Good luck.
Reply
To compare (as I am trying to see if this is for me) I am a teacher and coach. I could realistically see myself putting in about 5-10 hours a week during my coaching season (which ends in February) and then more like 12 hours per week until the summer and then a lot more time in the summer when school is out. I am trying to see if that is enough time to earn a few hundred dollars a month (so I am not spending $50 on a membership and getting nothing in return). Not that there's an exact science to this but would you say from an opinion that I am looking at this realistically?

Teaching is not a job it's a career. Affiliate marketing is not a job it's a career.

It took you many years to become qualified to teach. There is a lot to learn in this business but anybody can learn it, especially you. One that sets a goal and sticks to it.

Put in the time when you can, stick religiously to the lessons and complete all the tasks given. Use the community when you get stuck.

Keep learning and do not give up. Stay with this the rewards of success are freedom. A lifestyle that most people only dream about. I have no doubt that you can make much more than a part time income from what you learn here.

Marketing is just a set of skills that are to be learned. Learn them, then keep learning and I am sure you will be profitable.

Just do not give up. This is not a get rich quick scheme. WA teaches you how to be an internet business for the long term.

A business that grows and produces increasing income. Pay the money. Go yearly if you can, it's cheaper, stay with it.

It took me 6 months to get my first referral and 7 months to get my first sale. Tell me which course of college study can you undertake and start making money in 7 months.

Sorry for the lack of cohesion in this message, I am rambling.

Contact me anytime if you need help. Remember the money is in the lessons.

Check out my site. It's from what I learned here. Keep in touch

I appreciate the feedback and I will take a look at your site. I like what I have seen so far in the first lessons, I just didn't know what I can accomplish doing this in 6-10 hours a week (more hours during the holidays and summer with the way a teacher's schedule works).

I know people who start and quit things like this because they don't see results in a timely fashion but that's usually due to them being either to impatient or too lazy to work it. As you've read in my case it is more of a matter of making sure my schedule allows enough time to see success with the limitation of my current career. I'm sue others with a busier schedule have made this work in ways to generate success and income so I'm just doing the due diligence needed to make sure I am not in over my head.

Again, thanks for your input, it's appreciated...and if you have any other thoughts I will soak them in too.

A few hours here a few more there add up. Do it. Take your time, grasp the concepts and you will be fine.

Since I have been doing this I have reviewed many training programs and WA is the best there is for the cost. In fact it is very reasonable.

Some charge thousands. Keep in mind what one semester at college cost.

Good luck and if you need help feel free to contact me.

Hi Robin,

You are welcome. One thing you should know about WA is there isn't any down line. In fact it's against spam policy to even post a sales link.

None of us make any money from other members in an MLM way.

What WA does is give you the training to build an internet business. Start with lesson 1 and take it step by step.

WA will take you through the entire process. If your goal is to build an online business you are in the right place. Glad you are here.

Contact me anytime.

Sorry for the missed communication. What I meant was maybe I could interview you or you could share some of your health knowledge with my audience.
I am not a big fan of typing so sometimes I try to shorten sentences and in this case I've learned it is better to take the time to be clear than to hurry up and finish.
Thanks again for your help. Rio

Hi Barry,
I was looking at the themes and wondering if there is a way to search them rather than just scrolling through them. I'm looking for a craft theme - something with yarn or knitting in the background. How can I find a specific theme without scrolling through 2000 themes? If there isn't such a theme, is it possible to put my own background theme into the website?

I have encountered a problem while scrolling the themes. As I'm scrolling, I get "knocked out" of the page, and end up with my page reloading. This clears my domain name and website name, and I get to start all over. Am I doing something incorrectly? It has knocked me out of the page twice and each time I start scrolling from the top again.
Reply
Barryw1 Premium
Google Wordpress Craft Themes and click on the images that pop up. in the search results.This will allow you to look at many free themes without all the trouble.

Jot down a few of them you like and then you will be better able to make a choice.

You want a theme you like, of course, but in the overall scheme of things it will not matter much.

In the SiteRubix platform you should be able to check out the themes and preview them without having to start again.

You barely know what's going on and now you have to pick a theme to build your whole business around. Doesn't seem fair, right.

In the end other factors will determine your success not your theme.. Get right back to me if you continue to have the starting over again problem and we will figure it out.

Barry
Reply
Barryw1 Premium
One other thing. Ask about a good craft theme in the discussion section and people with craft sites may give opinions
Reply
MyraBeth Premium
You could have a look at my website and see if you like that theme. It is called: Eryn

The reason I picked this theme is because I didn't want to try to fit a picture across the top. But rather a space that was longer in height than in width, in other words, a space that would fit nicely for a vase of silk flowers.
Reply
Barryw1 Premium
Send me a link.
Reply
MyraBeth Premium
Ummm. . . when you look to select a WP theme, just scroll down or put it in a box (perhaps) to find this theme. There isn't a link. It's available when you are picking a theme for your WP website. Sorry, I can't be more helpful than this. But hopes this helps.
Reply
Barryw1 Premium
I thought you wanted me to take a look at your website. I meant the link to that.

Keep in mind that all themes can be profitable so don't get caught up for days trying to choose one.

The main thing is to learn how this whole make money online thing works and then put what you learn into practice.
Reply
MyraBeth Premium
You can go to my profile, if you want to look at my website. Yes, I realized that I could be looking for days, choosing a theme. But I did find the one I really like and suits my niche, within a few hours of looking. :)

Good. It's hard for people to know what theme to choose when some do not even know what they want to build.

Yes, deciding on a niche does come before picking a WP theme. I do think when picking a niche is to look at your own interests, skills, abilities and figure out what you can offer to others. It is all about what service we can provide for others.

Hey Barry, Your site is put together so well. Did you type it all out on the dashboard, new page? Maybe I'm not familiar enough with it yet but it seems limited in what it can do. I tried typing my pages in word but when I copy them over they don't come over the same. The colors don't come over at all. If I try to change a heading size it changes the whole page. Any points you can give would be appreciated. You seem to be very proficient in all of this. Sometimes when I visit other peoples site I get a little discouraged because I wonder if mine will ever look that good.

Hi and thanks. I type all my post directly in visual editor. I keep the setting in draft so it's not live until I am ready for it to be.

I use a plug in called WP edit which gives me many more fonts and a greater ability to control font sizes along with some nice other options.

Keep in mind this is my third website. One of those I deleted. The site you left comments on is the result of correcting all the glaring mistakes I made on the first site.

You are at about the 6 month point and soon things will begin to make a lot more sense to you. I don't know exactly when but at one point the whole thing just seemed clearer to me.

Hang in there and keep learning and if you are done with the training check out some of the training on subjects you don't understand.

I have a couple post on headlines, content and SEO that may help you.

The main thing is too keep going and not give up. It takes time. If you need some help let me know. Send me your link again.

The overall appearance of the site looks good. Top menu is good. All the pages look fine. The way you have broken up the content on your Bugging Out Kit is a fine way to present it. Keep your content well spaced, easy to read and remember to show instead of tell. Nice start. Keep it up.

Wow. I just got it. I am so slow and the funny part is I actually did call him since he is referral of mine.

My goodness Greg I didn't see it until just now. WOW. Poor rb. He keeps calling me Sir. That's funny.

If it weren't for you I would still be lost.

It just irritates me to dismiss before trying. I could have handled it more diplomatically.

I think you handled it perfectly! You don't like it, get out! Give us time to help the ones who want help and to work on our goals. This community is so great at helping and I've noticed that the helpers will smack people around a little bit, if needed! That is a great thing, get with the program or go do emails. Had a guy the other day ask what kind of money he would receive for being an Ambassador, he got lit up!!

I hear you but I normally and very easy going type guy. But generic and minimal value. I have spent 10 months on what he calls generic. Kind of pissed me off.

Your style: Passion ----- We learn, now I see and I'm sure you see, he could have been told to enjoy it while it was simple for him. If he knew everything, he wouldn't be where he is at. I have the same issue, hate the haters and the impatient. If his comments were a little more positive, like this is easy so far, our responses would be different. I had one guy attack my site with absolutely no positives through a PM. I blasted him. After several messages, we are in a pretty good place and I think with both learned something and that is what it is all about. Maybe you should address him again. It might lead to you getting a little heated, but pain and emotional turmoil are needed before serenity. Just look at my aa12-steps.com.
