About Braintree
Joined October 2014
Left school with just 2 GCE's. In my 40's I was an accountant in one of the FTSE100 companies and a Fellow Member of a professional body. I have taught Accountancy to adult classes from bookkeepers to managers and business owners. My first website is a free introduction to bookkeeping and accounting and my teaching is unlike any found in text books and simplifies the subject for new students.
My latest website expands on the bookkeeping information to incorporate additional topics of small business administration such as accountancy packages, marketing and website creation (WA). Concentrating towards the many people who are now contemplating starting their own businesses and need free of low cost information and help with the admin side.

I have commenced a website to debate "affordable housing" to which I would appreciate some supportive comments regarding the solutions suggested. Affordable Housing is a hot topic in many countries and we can all have a say and influence our Governments. You will find the websites in the "Follow Me On" area of my profile.

From the expertise I have gained as a member of Wealthy Affiliates I have built up this website and included many free tips on bookkeeping and accounts for students and business managers/owners. I am now very interested in developing this site further and adding social media.

Hello Colin and a very belated welcome to wealthy affiliate.
You've been here almost as long as I have so I have to ask - why follow me now?
Apart from that you will probably know by now that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve. Therefore can I suggest you browse some of the 250+ blogs I have published within WA.
I'm sure you will go away with lots of tips and advice.
Thank you for the follow as well and I will follow you.
Remember, you get stuck creating a site or anything else, you ask ok.
Enjoy your day.
Robert

Braintree Premium
Yes Robert, I created my website some time back but did not understand or follow some instructions. I am now re-doing the training at a slower pace to improve on my first attempt. Will be visiting your blogs and probably be taking advantage of your kind offer of help.
Many thanks.
Colin

Let's face the fact…

Colin, 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 Colin.

Thanks Kyle. I want to offer a free report as a download, can you direct me to relevant lessons and which e-mail provider would cover this best. Thanks
Reply
Kyle Premium
Do you have an autoresponder? If not, you should consider getting aweber.com for your email management. This allows you upload a PDF and automatically deliver it within your follow-up sequence.

Are you currently getting traffic to your website? If not, I would not jump the gun on this just yet. I would focus on content and getting rankings...once you have the traffic, then you can consider things like email marketing.
Reply
Braintree Premium
Thanks, Kyle. I must think afresh as I had in mind to put the free info which the site name refers to in a report. I shall now reconsider to including it on my first page by spreading this info over a few blogs. Will not have the benefit of e-mail list making, I guess there is plenty of time to worry about that. As you say ranking must come first.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, plenty of time to worry about that. Get the traffic in place first and then it is a more natural transition to incorporate an email layer on top.

Greetings Braintree and Welcome to WA... :) With each new step and each new experience here, you are moving in the direction of creating something great… your own online business! There are no shortcuts... It is not easy… however, the reward is great when you follow the lessons and then emerge with a great foundation from which you will grow.

There is nowhere else in the world (that I know of) that has the tools, the support, expertise, and willingness to teach and share as is found here at Wealthy Affiliate... You are on a path filled with challenges yet so many possibilities... You know what you have to work with, now enjoy it and build something great with it.! :) Julie

Just heading out for a bit here, but do leave me a message if you need a hand with anything. You should have Premium communication back for an additional 7 days now, so hit me up when you get a chance Colin!

Now Premium. I have ideas for two sites I want to develop myself but starting as a complete novice. Wordpress training is needed as I haven't found how to present bold type, underlines etc. Will be working hard during these dark evenings.

As you go through the training, you are going to learn the "ropes" of wordpress and you have an abundance of help along the way if you ever have any questions.

Here is an excellent live class that you should check out (a replay) that is on content management within Wordpress.
