About Blakec432
Joined November 2014
Hello! Allow me to introduce myself.
My name is Blake Croft, and I'm so glad you decided to stop by my profile.

I am exceptionally knowledgeable in the areas of Social Media. In my case, specifically in the areas of Social Media Marketing. I look to clear the fog on social media marketing for new beginners.

Let me give you just a few facts about me:
My name is Blake Alexander Croft.
I've always wanted to be named Alexander Blake Croft so that my initials could be ABC! :P
I am married to a wonderful woman by the name of Harley.
I'm an only child although I have 4 step-siblings.
I live in Tennessee.
I enjoy blogging and will make it part of my full-time career.
I love Android based devices, and have become VERY proficient in using them, as well as helping other troubleshoot them. Yes, I'm the family's technical support person.
I am an avid user of social media. Like seriously, I'm on every platform. I am full of many different tips and tricks on how to become proficient on each one.
I LOVE people and building relationships with them! They make me smile, cry, laugh, hit things, yell, and scream, but my life would not function if I didn't have people.
I see myself as being a leader NOT a follower!
My Myers-Briggs personality type (MBTI) is — INFJ.
I'm am an ambivert, but more on the introvert side.
And now some fun facts:
I am a Jesus follower, and are active with two ministries, one founded by myself, Born Again Ministry, and an online church, The Well Fellowship.
I enjoy music and singing. My wife tells me I'm talented, but that's for others to decide.
I have AT LEAST over 40 Bibles (I'm a Bible FANATIC)
I like to sniff Bibles. I'm not afraid to admit that Bibles are the best smelling book on planet Earth.
Currently, I am Assistant Manager of our town's Piggly Wiggly.
I could probably eat Mexican food every day of my life!
I desire to be GREAT in this life, yet I am content where I am until God is ready to promote.
I desire to have a GREAT career doing EXACTLY what I love!
I want to be the best husband that Jesus can help me be!
I dream of being a great daddy one day.
Your turn. Tell me about YOURSELF.
Just who are YOU? I'm looking to connect with all sorts of people. If I were to be specific and honest, I'd like to meet someone with the following characteristics:

Someone who loves the Android platform
Someone who loves blogging
Someone who loves social media
Someone who LOVES people
Someone who LOVES the art of building relationships
Someone who LOVES the art of understanding people and how they work
Someone who can help me excel in life and my dreams
Someone who can be an encouragement through every period of life, good or bad.
Why don't we connect?
If you match the above characteristics, then we NEED to meet. Why don't you connect with me here on Google+ in a hangout. I'd love to connect and build a great relationship with you while helping you any way I can.

Broken down, this is going to be more than achievable for you (and then some). The internet has over 2 billion people actively search for and buying things online. All you need to do is connect with a few of these people each day to meet your initial goal!

I know with some hard work and persistence you will achieve all of your goals and then be building brand new ones. I am here to help if you ever need anything and you have an entire community rooting for your success here at WA Blake! :)

Hey Blake I went to your website and I read your blogs a few days ago. When I enter a forum how do I work my website into conversation. You said that when do these forums we must engage and be active. I guess by that you mean to offer up our expertise on a subject freely and to basically become active. Once one does that how and when do I apply my website. Is there a certain number of times i have to be there before I say anything? I would really love some traffic to my website but I am not asking to this just get the traffic. I don't want to be rude and just plug my site you know. So when is it ok to do so?
Reply
blakec432 Premium
Hey there Roselene!!

Good question. Once you engage a lot in different social avenues and forums, you'll begin to meet people and have opportunities (like you did with me) to talk one to one with someone. Your content, expertise, and engagement, will draw people to you. At that point, it's TOTALLY okay to share your website with that person. I usually ask them about their business first then just casually share with them what I'm doing on social media as well as my website.

I hope that helps a little bit. What do you think?

Hello, Blake. I went to your site. It looks good, lots of information about social marketing. The only thing for me, it's too busy. It took a little while to load. But that's just me. I did leave you a comment. Best of luck! Peggy PS I have a special niche website @ OldTimeRockRoll.com and I have a WA affiliate site that I'm still working on @ JustHonestIncome.com. Have a goodnight!

WA is going great. I like the trainings their super easy and they don't take too long. It is very user friendly. And I've met some great people. The only thing that I can say that hasn't gone well for me is the chatroom. Every time I go there it's not a positive experience. I sort of stay clear of it. But everything else is great. I haven't gone into the classroom yet but I would like to finish the initial trainings before I get into anything more advanced. You know I have to build a basis first. Hey thanks for asking!

Blake, 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 Blake.

I love the design of your theme, the only thing I don't like is the height of the locked header. I think it is a bit much in terms of the real estate that it takes up and you may want to limit the height a tiny bit so that you have more viewable area for the content.

Overall though Blake, I love what you have done thus far!
Reply
blakec432 Premium
Yeah. I was having trouble with the header. When I make it the size it should be, it shrinks my logo to almost unreadable. Weird? Think you might know how to fix that?
Reply
Kyle Premium
You might want to shrink the logo first to a smaller size. If this just isn't working, I would forget making these changes. Not the end of the world if you leave it as is, still looks great Blake. :)
Reply
blakec432 Premium
I believe I may have got it all worked out! Check it out again and let me know what you think. :) Do you think I presented WA in the right manner?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yes, I definitely think you have done a nice job here Blake. You are a natural.

Now it is a matter of building out your website content.

Target keywords within every page or post.

Each page or post on your website should have a keyword focal point. Keywords are what lead to rankings and what lead to traffic. So when you are looking to come up with an idea for a new post, do some keyword research and find a phrase that is related to your niche.

As you build out your content and start getting rankings under these terms, you will see your traffic (and revenue) cumulatively grow. Just know that not every page will rank, but over time a good percentage will. The game of numbers!

Hi Blake,

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! Thank you for following and I will be following you as well. I look forward to reading of your progress through the courses and learning about social media and androids with you. I have an android phone (Samsung Notes 2) and an iPhone as well as a Kindle Fire and I am slow at learning the devices due to time constraints. I wish you success in your venture here and I am glad to see you are a bible sniffer (snicker snicker).

I'm fine. I hope you are fine too! At what course are you now? I'm at Course 2 lesson 3 - trying to create my first website. Scary, fun and challenging (since I've never done anything lika this before). Love the writing, but at the same time I'm so scared to write in English. That is the biggest challenge right now. At the same time it's a lot of fun to try to create something in a language I don't know perfectly. Are you done with your website?
