About BobZeiss
Joined September 2015
Hello to everyone in WA land, my name is Bob

Ex British army, ex telecom engineer, ex IT software engineer, ex telecoms consultant, ex project manager. That's a lot of Ex's.

I have diplomas in lots of tech stuff and I am brilliant at difficult sums.

Retired early and now live in Malaysia for much of the time. I love heritage and history.

Still have lots of fire in my belly and want be the oldest entrepreneur on the block. My Dad always used to say "we are all the same age, we just started at different times". That seems very zen but basically means that you are never in a bad place to start.

I am now pushing forward with my web projects and I learned two things. Hard work is necessary to succeed and you should do the work for yourself and no one else.

I am happy to share my skills and assets and knowledge for:

Business spreadsheets, images, bespoke templates, Wordpress, knowledge of South East Asia, travel, logos,

Have a great online life,

Bob (sometimes known as Qjumper)

Thanks for the topic. I have tried both. Outbrain seems more expensive I think. Tamboola a little more affordable. But I'm not sure really. I've only dipped my toe in a little bit so far.

Hi Craig,

Thanks for the comments.

I am fine with most things. Converting traffic into sales is a bit of a problem though,

Unfortunately I think this is a problem for all digital marketers, even the big companies like Amazon would like to do this at a higher rate.

Right now I think I'm behind you a ways in that I'm still struggling to drive traffic at all. But I assume you are already trying things like testing various formats and types of posts to determine how your traffic is reacting to them?

Hi Bob - any relation to Carl? just looked at your profile and and you look like a useful man to know.
What made you chose Malaysia for retirement.
Reply
BobZeiss Premium
Hi Kieth,

No not a relation of Carl's unless he has pots of money. If so I will do some research:-)

The choice of Malysia was the result of many things. My wife is originally from Penang and so I already had a built in family here.

For those without family connections this is still a wonderful place to live. The government has a special program for retirees and expats with lots of great benefits including no tax, and tax free car purchase. The country is stable and friendly with a great climate and wonderful food.

Perhaps the best advantage for me is the location of Penang as a hub for local and international travel.

Since I have been here we have travelled extensively theoughout SE Asia and we are planning our next two trips (Singapore & Myanmar) soon.

Many of our expat friends here are from the oil & gas industry.

Should you wish to know anything further you can PM me or take a browse of this site:

Truly I have an English dialect or indeed many of them as I am fluent in Scouse, Geordie and Brummy.

Where we live now (in Malaysia) I only hear London accents as they seem to be the ones who can afford high end condos. We just live on th beach on a diet of rice and fish heads.

Hi Bob,
I too am an "ex-many things!"

I enjoyed reading your profile, and truth be told what attracted me to follow you was your picture of the Leopard (have a cat of the Bengal breed who has similar markings!)

Some of us emulate the Leopard in that we have many "spotted" coats!

Kind regards,
~Arthur
Reply
BobZeiss Premium
Hi Arthur, Your cat looks very similar to my cat is who has sadly passed on. He was a tremendous character who often brought me presents such as rabbits, ducks and birds. In fact your cat is identical but the vet told me that he was a highland cat which he identified by the unusual guard hairs on his coat.

The leopard cat resides in Thaiping Zoo, he is in great condition as are all of the animals in the Zoo.

Thanks for following me and best of luck with your online progress.

Thank you for your comments about the Penang site, I have been concentrating on another project so Penang has taken a back seat. I hope to do some more research on Chinese history in Malaysia especially Hokkien & Teochew so will be able too o include that soon.

Dive sites would be on the East Coast or the South Thailand Marine park. Right now I am looking out at the North Penang Straits, lovely but a little muddy.

In a post, I said, "somebody smarter than us, meaning you and I said, thus and so; taking literary license and speaking for you. After reading your profile, I must apologize and go back and edit that post to say, "smarter than I".

I am truly happy to meet you and hope we can develop a relationship, both business-wise and socially on WA and hopefully in person someday.

Thanks for your comments. After taking advice from members here at WA I decided to remove the "coming soon" block on my main site. I had forgotten that my practice site still had the block on.
My main site is not on WA, I will probably transfer it when time is appropriate. To be honest I really don't have the time to create training. Content for my site comes first and the research is quite intensive. When I get through the initial stages I will show it to the world:-)

BobZeiss Premium
Hi Lorna, thanks for following me. Penang is my passion but sometimes it takes a bit of discovering to get to the best bits.
I would give one piece of advice to all thos who come to stay at one of the tourist hotels on the north coast, turn right when you leave th hotel, you will then start discovering Penang. Most visitors turn left and only get half the Penang experience. If anyone on WA is visiting let me know.

Hey Bob, How things your side?

BobZeiss Premium
Not so great, I had a problem moving my site to WA. I had backed up the site only to find I couldn't restore. I reversed out of that but still couldn't get the site back. So I have been rebuilding the site. Not so bad really, that's the part I enjoy.
How are things with you, making a fortune yet? :-)
Reply
DuaneClark Premium
lol enjoying the re-build ;) classic. Yeah I went a week or so without internet (not by choice) and got itchy fingers so spent the time with my second love (my wife's the my first) and worked on my car. So fresh and ready to rock and roll.

Had a red moment this morning when I got caught up in "paralysis by analysis" took a step back and concluded that my site has actually only been live for 4 weeks now and needed to adjust my expectations ;(

So while you re-build ill re-define my reality ;)
Anyway all good. I'm happy, my families happy and little steps closer to my dream every day, what more could i want.

Take care pal.

Thanks for networking with me, Bob. Love your Cool Cat Icon. What type of images do you have?
Reply
BobZeiss Premium
My profile image is a clouded leopard that lives in Thaiping, Malaysia. I took the photo of the young leopard at a distance of about 2 feet. I was totally captivated by him and thought that his image was far more interesting than mine for the profile.

I have gazillions of images, mainly taken in Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia. Some are on my old website www.shootingasia.com
The site needs refurbishing and bringing up date.

Hi Bob, Just wanted to pop in and say hi. How things going?
Reply
BobZeiss Premium
Hi Duane, good of you to ask.
Well just as I thought I was getting up to speed I am getting a few problems. 3 of my sites are on hostgator and I was sort of happy with that but it seems that to get the best out of WA I should be using the comments platform. That can only be done if my sites are hosted on WA. I don't mind that but it a big hassle moving them across.

Other than that I'm fine.

How are things going with yourself?
Reply
DuaneClark Premium
Hi Bob, Sorry for the delayed response.
Been fighting with my sites theme, felt very helpless as nothing wanted to work... only to discover all i needed was a more apropriate theme ;) so am back on track and writing loads of content again... yay for me ;)

Yeah the comments resource here at WA is brilliant, perticularly for gaining authority and credebility online. im not sure of how to shift though as i only needed to redirect my domains, hope it all works out.

Otherwise all good here, im technacally on my 10 day break between courses so been spending time learning about traffic generation and monetization, there is such great material here!!

Ok, im off again, take cal pal and we'll chat soon.

Hi Duane, I'm glad to hear you are making progress. I was a bit delayed with the short ft from Hostgator but all OK now.

Themes are going to be part of my online business. I will build them on Artisteer & Themler and then offer a choice of three highly tailored ones to my visitors There is also an affiliate program. Anything to make a penny!
Will lose a bit of time tonight as my team is playing in the European championship.

Will catch up with you soon.

Bob, 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 Bob.

BobZeiss Premium
Hi Kyle, thanks for the encouragement. To be honest I am OK at the moment. I feel like I have got into some kind of a groove and good things are happening.

There was always that nagging feeling that somehow this might not work. I am now convinced it will.

Currently the only time I would contact you is if I came up with some idea that may help WA and it's members. I guess that's the innovator in me. I have held back because I think you may have some of these things covered for the next evolution of WA.

But be prepared for lots of questions about social media. On this subject I am a bit of a dunce. I recognise that this is the area where I could really develop the business.

Thanks again,

Bob

Kyle Premium
It absolutely will, but someone saying this is not usually enough as you have to prove it to yourself. I know that this was the case for me when I got rolling. Do know that this is a business and like any other business, it can be very lucrative.

The fact that you are focused around ideas that can "help others" indicates to me that you are going to do very well. If you can help people, regardless of your niche, you have a very successful journey ahead of you!

I look forward to working with you Bob! :)

Hi, I will do this when my sites are more advanced. My problem is that I do not want to pass my email around. I am pretty overloaded at the moment and more email traffic would distract me from WA training.
I would like to make a comment though. Your posts are good but too long. They could easily be broken down into more shorter posts. That way you could drip feed them on to the site which would make googles algorithms happy. Remember also that people do not read posts, they scan them. I reckon anything over 600 words is wasted.
I hope that's helpful.

I have not posted it because I have changed direction. I will continue with the Penang site but my chosen affiliate needs quite a lot of content to be present and ranking to be established.

Hi Bob! Don't worry, I'm not good at time management either. :-) I had to retire early and unexpectedly in 2007 due to health issues and so ended my many years of getting up at 5:00 am to go to work. I became a total night owl so it's hard to get back to disciplining myself to work a certain number of hours a day. I'm sure you will create a website that is more than viable. I think the key is to do at least one significant thing most days of the week towards one's goals.

I also like the community aspect but I would recommend that new web marketers keep a low profile for the first few weeks.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

My name is Steph. I went premium five months ago and have since then built a couple websites, which you can check out on my profile page. I have moved up in the Ranks to 7, so I am now an Ambassador of Wealth Affiliate. I work to offer as much help as you need when first starting out at Wealthy Affiliate.

You will do great, but you will have to work hard and put in the time needed. Please take a moment and familiarize yourself with the platform and begin the training "Get Started Here" (green button on upper left hand corner).

I also have created training which you can check out here. https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/stephhill/training

If you get stuck and have questions, let me know and I will help. You can also ask the community at large for some assistance.

Happy you are here!! Welcome to a new chapter towards your personal and financial freedom.

All the best to you,
Steph

Hi Steph, I really do appreciate you taking time to contact me. I seem to have an enormous amount of training available, so much so that I am likely to be blown of track. For now I will just keep my head down and move forward as best I can. My initial time estimate was was about 12 hours a week but since I started I am doing 4 hours a day minimum. Today is more like 7. I know I have to work hard to succeed but I have to slow down a bit in order to retain my focus.

Would you mind taking a minute to chime in and share here: I keep a pretty close watch on that thread (and so do the co-founders of Wealthy Affiliate, Kyle and Carson), so posting your income goals there will give us a much better idea of what we can do to help you!


And of course, let me know if there's anything I can help you with Bob :)

Hey Bob! I wanted to start you off with a quick note that could SIGNIFICANTLY impact your success with Wealthy Affiliate. Read this entire message if you are serious about being successful in internet marketing (it's lengthy, but I'm not joking when I say that this advice could make or break your entire internet marketing career):


1) You'll need to work consistently and hard. There's going to be a lot to learn in the beginning and you may feel overwhelmed at a point, but keep pressing forward and you'll make it through. It happened to me and every other successful internet marketer at some point, and the only way to become successful in this industry is to push past that overload whenever you get there.


Do yourself a favor and commit to a number of hours that you can work each week right now. It doesn't have to be massive, but it should be more than 10 between evenings and weekends at least. Just remember the more you work each week, the faster you'll learn and draw closer to success.


After you've picked the number of hours you can work each week, commit to working that much for AT LEAST six months - a year would be better. You won't see results immediately in this industry, and being consistent is the key. Pick a number of hours you can work each week, then work those hours for at least six months. It's something you've probably never done in this industry, and this advice alone will make a HUGE difference in your chances at succeeding with internet marketing as long as you take it seriously and STICK WITH IT.


2) I recommend starting off with this training (which you can access with your free account): It just scratches the surface of the MASSIVE amount of helpful content in WA, but you'll get a good "feel" for the teaching style here and begin to see the power of all of the great things they're teaching here at Wealthy Affiliate.


3) DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE COMMUNITY. Two of the best places you can go to for help when you get stuck are the "Live Chat" and the "Classrooms" sections located on the panel to your left. You'll find direction and inspiration through the community here, which is one of the reasons I recommend WA so highly.


4) Finally, you don't ever have to upgrade to the premium account here at Wealthy Affiliate if you don't want to. You'll have limited access using your free account for as long as you wish. HOWEVER, if you're serious about internet and affiliate marketing then you should invest in the premium membership for AT LEAST one month. You could look back on it years from now and see it as a pivotal moment in your internet marketing career, but you never will if you don't at least give it a try.


Check it out for a few days though - you don't need to upgrade right now. Make sure it's a good fit for you, and if you upgrade within the first 7 days you'll receive your first month's membership at more than 50% off. I keep my membership active and recurring every month so I can be here for the people I refer like you, so realize that I'm putting my money where my mouth is here!


On top of that, if you upgrade to a premium membership at the discounted rate within the first 7 days I have a special bonus EXCLUSIVE to people that join WA through me and upgrade within the first week of creating their free account. This bonus will show you how to be twice as successful with WA or any other legitimate internet marketing program out there and gives you some very valuable video lessons (which I recorded for you personally, of course) to ensure you get off to the right step in your internet marketing business.


I keep a close watch on the list of people that upgrade from starter to premium, so I'll send the bonus your way within 24 hours. If you upgrade and don't receive it within that time frame for some reason, just post on my WA profile and let me know!


I don't offer that bonus so you'll spring for the membership and make me more money, I offer the bonus just in case you needed that tiny "push" to make sure you invest in this training because I know that you will use for the rest of your IM career and it could change your life. I've referred hundreds of people now and I have NEVER had anyone tell me they were dissatisfied.


Best of luck to you! You're about to embark on a journey that could change your life forever, so make sure you take it seriously, put in the time and effort, and expect great things in return!


You know where to find me,
Ian Pribyl
