About Borneoman
Joined May 2016
Hi guys! My name is Raynold and I live in North Borneo. My long-term goal is to achieve financial freedom from internet marketing. Currently, I teach secondary/high school at a local public school here in my country.

Before joining WA, I was involved with online MLM and lost a lot of money. Most of the companies have vanished, but I learned many skills such as social media marketing and also free and paid advertising.

Then I found out about CPA marketing while looking for ways to make money online. I bought a few cheap courses and started to launch campaigns using Facebook and Bing ads. This time I made a few conversions. Unfortunately after a few months, I ran out of cash and paused all my CPA campaigns.

I plan to jump into CPA marketing again in the near future because the potential of it is so huge. Wealthy Affiliate teaches how to build websites and monetize them. The process may take longer than the CPA model, but I think it's a better model in the long run.

I am really excited to be in this community and I promise myself to work as hard as I can until I make a full time income from internet marketing. English is my third language, so please be patient with all the grammatical errors that you might find in my writing.

Update 3 July 2016:
All the articles and reviews on the current website I'm working on (Amazon product review site) are done by freelance writers. I do the research, send them the writing assignments with specific instructions. When the articles/reviews are submitted, I'll review them and do some editing. Then I publish the edited articles on my site.

Update December 2016:
Made my first sales, my earning for this month is only $0.72 :-)

Update 31 January 2017:
In January 2017, I made 4 sales. The commission is only $1.72. Not many, but it's a good sign.

Update 22 February 2017:
Made $12 commissions from Amazon this month. Only 5 sales but the customer bought one high-ticket item (unrelated to what I'm promoting on my website).

Update 4 April 2017:
I thought my website will make no money at all in March, but just two days before April, my dog accessories site made two sales and I earned $2.88. A decrease in sales but I'm happy to make consistent sales every month since December last year.

Update 11 May 2018:
I make money consistently from Amazon EVERY month now. It's still not enough to quit my day job though, LOL.

I will take a break from my day job in July 2018, and work on building my Digital Marketing business (helping business owners with their online presence). The focus is SEO, content marketing, social media management and web design.

Update 18 Oct 2018:
Building a digital marketing sounds really awesome. I already build a site to promote my service and I think this will be a long term goal for me. The main focus at the moment is still affiliate marketing; working hard on building and growing my two affiliate sites.

Thanks Carson. I really appreciate it. I'm launching a niche site soon. It would be an Amazon products review website.

Hi Raynold, love your goals. I know you are very determined.

You should pin your goals up in your work area and look at them each day, it's awesome. Date it as well. Focus on them and they'll come true.

Personally, I think it helps to write out our goals, give short and long term goals, and stay dedicated to working hard to reach those goals on a daily basis.

That's what really helped me get started and has lead to much of my online success. That and the education, support, and guidance offered here at WA.

All's it takes to reach your goals is to follow the training courses and take action on what you learn, work at it consistently with a positive energy and you'll make it.

I'm certainly glad I followed the WA training on a daily basis, I now have a great online business that works for me 24/7, even when I'm sleeping.

I wish you nothing but the same kind of success,
Todd

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Thanks a lot Dylan. I really appreciate it. I've been reading and learning about affiliate marketing for quite some time now but never build an a niche site.
Maybe it's procrastination and also fear. I'll do my best to follow the training and build my first niche site.

Hi Raynold,

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. My name is Todd and I referred you here to Wealthy Affiliate through my website Learn To Grow Wealth Online.

I hope you really enjoy your week here at WA. There is a ton of info & training here, so absorb it like a sponge.

I personally started by taking the classes one day at a time and then simply took action on what I learned and I couldn't be happier with my online business.

I Make Money While I Sleep, Isn't That Cool

That being said, before you start making money, there are just three things you need to know.

1) Those who ask questions and interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their financial goals.

- Watch this video here to learn how to maximize your community reach at WA.. I would also strongly encourage you to follow the Top 100 Friends here at WA and to take a look at their Blogs, Training's & Websites located under their profile pictures here at WA.

2) You can get started learning how to make money by doing your Level 1 Certification Course. Click on the green "Get Started Here" button or just click this link.. .

This is the first course on the Wealthy Affiliate Entrepreneur Program, and the best next step you can take. This is where I started my online business and I think you'll be pleased with the results.

3) Don't be afraid to ask questions. WA is a super friendly community, especially to newbies, so there are no dumb questions here.

Remember that you can ask any question you want in live chat, on your personal blog, or in the Getting Started Classroom here..

Hey Raynold, I saw you made it here. Check out some of the Live Video Classes on the Left Menu here just to take a look at some of the topics.

You might now a lot of the basics in Course 1 of the free trial membership, but you should still go through it. The Get Started Here/Online Entrepreneur course has 5 total courses currently. You should try it for a month and hit the video classes/weekly webinars too. You'll find that WA is enormous with training's and support.

Awesome stuff. Just to let you know. I already cancelled my bluehost's shared hosting. I think the hosting on WA is much better.
