Update June 2017

Its been a while since I updated this so I figured i better do so as some things have changed.

[CRYPTOCURRENCY] Update June 2017
I have entered the crypto / bitcoin trading / mining industry! I started on May 28th 2017 and have over doubled my initial investment ($300). Looking at investing another $700 up front into some long term investments and using the $300 + profit I have already earned to practice aggressive day trading.

Goals are to have a well diversified portfolio of 5 - 7 coins for long term (1 - 5 years) with the aim of being insta-millionaire.

Once I finish this I will start building my short term portfolio where I will be trading constantly.

I need to master Technical Analysis!

[NICHE MARKETING] Update June 2017
After my recent success with my case study posted here at WA, I decided to give niche marketing another push. I have been building a niche site every month this year. I am still yet to monetize these niches as I need a bit more link building done to push my sites built in Jan, to page 1 so I can monetize.

I have almost outsourced this entire process! The only part I do now is keyword / niche research and that's because I kinda enjoy it lol.

I still have my smaller niche sites. They are making me money passively which is great. They are not making me huge money, but they are at least paying their rent (and then some).

[ECOMMERCE PROJECT] Update June 2017
Currently building out an ecom site with another partner although he has gone radio silent for some reason. Doesn't bother me, i'll push on!

Still have this project in mind. Just need to free up the time away from my others to get this done. The majority of the research is done. I have found the supplier.

[LOCAL MARKETING] Update June 2017
I have started to wind this back as it started to feel like a job LOL.. Yes I still do client SEO.

I have a local marketing business that is generating fantastic income. I essentially help other businesses with their marketing. Currently earning a full time living from this. I provide web design, SEO, lead generation, video marketing, PPC, content marketing.

[KINDLE]
I publish Kindle books too. This also makes me passive income. I literally dont touch them and just make the sales. I use them to make money and generate leads towards my sites. I intend to create a publishing company and generate lots of books as this money is just so easy.

[ADDITIONAL INCOME]
I am contracting to an international SEO and marketing company. I do their support work and earn great money here. I mostly do this for the knowledge (they hold weekly webinars on the latest SEO techniques).

[NON PROFIT PROJECT]
I am in the process of building out a system to help non-profit organizations with their marketing. These companies will pay me to drive their fundraising campaigns (even non-profits have money, they are a business after all). My goal is to create a 200% ROI (or better) with what they spend with me. I am going to be building a team of people to help me (using VA's) so I don't have to do all the work personally.

[OUTSOURCING]
I have had some good success with outsourcing. So much, that I am looking at building my own outsourcing company to help other internet marketers (like you). If you need any help feel free to contact me via pm.

[JOINT VENTURES]
I am open to working along side someone on projects. Depending on how much each party brings to the table will determine the return. Looking for coders as I am interested in SaaS.

=============== ABOUT ME ================

Father of 2, and madly in love with my girl for 20 years.. Running a successful offline business and now wanting to create a Total Lifestyle Freedom through internet marketing.

I never done very well at school. I was a drop out. I have been an alcoholic, drug abuser and I have been chronically depressed at several stages of my life.

Despite a very rough journey I have managed to create some diamonds from coal.

I run my own Paintball business in NZ. I have systems in place that allow me to make money hands off doing this.

I am a newbie when it comes to writing so article marketing has been interesting.

I am fascinated with SEO and spend a lot of time learning this.

I am an author and currently have 2 books in circulation. Currently earning a regular passive income from this.

I also consider myself a competent graphic designer and enjoy creating new images for my sites. I have been told that I have an eye for it and that my sites reflect my design skills.

I am a novice coder and have built programs, websites and apps from the ground up.. I come up against problems and I find my way to solve it.

Sometimes I find stuff in my archives that blows my mind! Crazy some of the things I create when I should be sleeping lol.

I'm impressed by the variety of your multiple streams of income. I'm following you because I want to learn more about how you keep track of it all. I'm mainly a writer. So I'm here to learn more of the web design end of things. I've also struggled with depression and substance abuse in the past. I'm aways impressed by people who've overcome all of that and thrived.

It looks like you have a pretty mean beard going on. I grew mine out for six months a few years back and then shaved it off and kept the handlebar mustache for about a month. I'm glad I did it, but I don't think I could rock a full-beard continually.

BeauAndNik Premium
Hey TP,

Yeah I have been rocking the full beard for a few years now. I can't grow hair on my head so it's moved to my chin LOL. My kids give me stick about having my head on upside down! hahahah cheeky sods.

Hi,

I came across your story as I was doing some research on WA before signing up. It's the first site I ever signed up with, others are largely scams or not as comprehensive.

Great to see a Kiwi success story here. I just started two days ago

Please check out my profile, we got a few things in common tho I didn't put everything in my bio ;)

My wife also works in marketing, with a background in printing and graphic design.

We're based in Auckland, but scoot all over the country on my greatest passion, my motorbike.

Would be great to bounce some ideas off you if you're interested.
If not, sweet as.

Cheers

Ollie

Hi, I´m glad you´re having success in many areas of digital marketing.

I will like to ask you a question...

I´m looking to start an amazon affiliate site and was wondering if then azon authority thing is the way to go.

I will create a lot of blog posts and wanted the plugin to add products and increase conversion in the site.

Can you help me if this is the way to go or if there is another way?

Thanks

Thanks for the help. Yeas I'm aware of what can happen and even more so very upset that after 3 months of bugging, Pleading, begging the page is still up. 4 days ago I talk to facebook, they told me several people were involved. :(. One in Ohio. But they keep it up. I need to fix this myself and shut that door. I'm following you.

Hey there buddy! I hope you are doing good. Since you have a superb CV and have some expertise in marketing and web design maybe you could give me some feedback (only if you have the time and only if you want)

Basically, I could use some feedback on my homepage (what do you like, what do you dislike, what should I improve, should I remove a particular section of move some up or down, the overall look and feel of it, is the page too slow, etc)

Here's the link: http://droneswith.com/

I am looking forward to your reply and if you don't have the time just tell me I will understand :)

Cheers

Looks great JP!

The only advice I would give you would be to use your h2 tags a bit more, injecting more related keywords per page and on the home page.

Also when doing a review, make the recommendations pop out. Can be done with content boxes. Also, make sure you wrap the image with text. Looks better than it being set to no alignment and the text being forced to the top and bottom.

Thanks a lot for your time my friend!
I will consider all these advice and work on that :)

Nice to meet you BeauAndNik, I am looking forward in interacting with you. My pleasure in reading your bio you have had a very interesting life. I guess when I wrote mine i was under a completely misunderstanding? Therefore I need to go redo completely. Do you know how I can edit it? Or send me to the correct classroom I must of missed along the way. Also they are talking about clicking off task, which I have know ideal where.That is probably why my stuff isn't showing up.

Hey there,

Thanks for taking the time to connect with me :)

To edit your profile there is a link just below the bio on your profile page that says "Edit Bio. It's right beside "read full bio".

At the bottom of each lesson there are generally tasks assigned.. You must complete them and tick the box :)

Dpiper Premium
Thank you, On the task? The only thing below the lesson is the group chat to go over the videos?
Reply
BeauAndNik Premium
Then just tick the boxes (after you complete the tasks) and you can proceed on to the next lesson

HEY THERE, just wanted to say Hi. I clicked on your site to check it out but was unable to get any of the links on the site to work. I checked several posts and couldn't get by the intro. The video on affiliate marketing wouldn't come up either.
I enjoyed your profile. We are similar in life ups and downs.
Good Luck and I hope to be able to gain some knowledge from you here at WA!

hey there, thanks for dropping by and giving me some feedback. I went to the site and clicked around, playing the video and everything seemed ok... can you tell me what links failed?
Reply
DDarragh Premium
I tried again. Same thing. I could not get the video to play??
i can"t get by this spot " We […]" in the reviews, shouldn't I be able to click there and read more? I even tried an incognito window. Sorry maybe its me? the links in the products page worked except the one on the landing page that says read my review?
