About Boffy
Joined June 2014
I've always had an interest in business and a strong entrepreneurial mind. As a child I enjoyed reading business biographies and as I got older this interest continued into university where I won a £10,000 prize in a dragen's den style competition. With all this interest I never studied business studies, but computing.

Now I'm in my mid-20s working full time as an IT technician. It pays well and I'm good at my job but it does not interest me and I hunger for the excitement of running my own business; creating my own success story.

Outside of work I am getting to the point in my life where the wife and I want to start a family. Earning enough to replace her income is my current goal so that she could stay at home and raise our child.

I already have a website making a few pounds a month through Amazon Affiliate program. My traffic is increasing daily and my confidence is growing...WA is the next step I need to take on this exciting journey.

Very nice, genuine, and heartwarming story Boffy. I'm currently investigating WA as a newbie. If I could ask, what drove you to WA when you already have the knowledge and skills to build your business?

Thanks for the comment David - and welcome to WA!

For me it's about having other people to support, motivation and discuss the journey with. The networking, expertise from other online marketers, and invaluable ever-growing content (WAbinars).

Hosting is a bonus of course, then you've also got the bootcamp/WA affiliate scheme if that's something you want to get your hands on.

I hope that helps.

Boffy, you are a real hoot. Have been following you since the Wabinar weeks ago and added you in Google. See you on live chat quite often and happened onto your blog regarding the UK Brainstormers.
After reading your posts this early am, guess it might be a good idea to click on your Follow Me button!
Have enjoyed your goodreads and leave with useful insight on being happy travelers on our roads to success. A job well done.
An early bird myself, like to catch the worms before they slither away in history. LOL. Hope I can be of help, and look forward to our continued interchange. ^_~Lynn

Well I beg to differ my man... Squirt cheese doesn't hold a candle to Velveeta. I serve it sliced, with a refreshing glass of Tang...

Hey Graham,
Reading your bio and seeing your accomplishments so far, I can tell that you are a go-getter and you are positive too. I like that. I guess I owe you for adding me in your network, else I wouldn't know more about you. So, cheers! My best wishes to your success and your wife's too.

Cheers,
Jenn

Hey Jenn,

“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” – Jim Rohn

In order to become a success, you should hang around with successful people - your mindset changes and you take more influences from these kind of people. Jenn, you are definitely in that category so I wanted to read your blogs and get to know you better.

Just reading your blog post yesterday and the comments towards me has already shown that you are the perfect person I should be aiming to follow. I look forward to chatting to you more often, reading your blog and hearing more of your success stories.


-Graham

Boffy, Thanks again for the assistance with uploading a very difficult ePix theme. I have it up and running although not much content on it currently. www.visionsbyjtwphotography.com
Reply
Boffy Premium
Glad you got it sorted, nice looking theme.

One thing you are going to need to ensure is that the photos are really high resolution. A few on there are a bit pixelated at the moment .
Reply
Beach John Premium
Those are just test photos. The photographer is going to be supplying his own photos for the site. From what I can see from the test photos, he will need a minimum of 1025 and higher. The best photos on here are 1600.
Reply
Boffy Premium
Ah, great. Yeah I'd go with 1600x1200

Let me know when I should be ready. And should I even have the Upcoming posts Category? Thanks again.
Reply
Boffy Premium
Thanks for the follow Trent.

Keep building content, add the keywords using All-In-One SEO and the visitors will arrive organically through search engines.

The site itself looks great, its just the content and affiliate aspects you will want to build on to earn money.

I wouldn't bother with 'upcoming posts'. As soon as you have 15-50 posts people won't be looking for upcoming, but rather previous related posts.

Keep up the great work pal.

What's going on Graham? Hope you have had an awesome week here at WA and you are making some good progress. Drop me a note "reply" if you need a hand with anything. :)

Boffy Premium
Thanks Kyle. I'd love to PM you about back linking and a few SEO questions. I don't want you to repeat yourself so let me finish the lessons first and i'll get back to you shortly.

I've subbed to Premium for the month and booked a week off work - It's time to take action!
Reply
Kyle Premium
Sounds good Graham, drop me a PM if your questions aren't answered.

With backlinking, DO NOT focus on backlinking. You don't need it and it will do more harm than good. You can get first page rankings and outrank those with backlinks by focusing on quality and engaging content, which you are going to see is the theme within the training.

PS. Congrats on going Premium!

Hey Graham, just wanted to pop back and see how you are doing? I noticed that you haven't quite set-up your account yet, just wanted to let you know there is a video on how to do this if there is any confusion.

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/completing-your-account-set-up-at-wa-adding-a-description-image

Setting up your account will lead to much better help here within the community as people feel like they can connect with you better (with an image and a description)

Just wanted to make sure that all was good and if you do need a hand with anything, just let me know! :)

Thanks for the message Carson,

I haven't had the time to fill in the information yet but I've just subscribed for the month and have booked a week off work at the end of the month to further learn and improve my current website.

I'll update my profile page right now :)

Hey Graham,

Awesome to hear that you're going to have a week at the end of the month to really get involved in the training and improve your website.

Focus on quality, unique content, and really understanding your target audience. We explain this all within the training courses :)

Talk soon,

Carson

Can I check the 'Sites' on your profile - are they no-follow? I don't want my users seeing my profiteering from them ;)
Reply
Carson Premium
Hey Graham,

When people click on those links they will be taken to your sites in a new window.

You do not need to list any sites in your profile if you do not want to, it's up to you. Your sites that you build here at WA do not automatically show up there, so if you prefer to have no sites listed, that's totally fine.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Graham!

I hope that you are enjoying your first day here within the community and have had a chance to poke around and see what we have to offer. As you get started I'd like to suggest working through the "Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1)" course as it will give you a very solid understanding of how Internet marketing works and how you can leverage the Internet to earn revenue.

This training is on your Dashboard and can be found in the main menu:
https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1

I am here to help at each step of the way so please do not hesitate to ask for anything :)
