About BRawiri
Joined October 2017
Kia ora! My name is Brenda Rawiri, and my husband Tu and I live in Auckland, New Zealand with our four children.
I work full-time at our local Museum and have looked for many years, for a way to work from home, be my own boss and choose my own hours. All while making a significant income.
I am here to learn how to earn online, become a wealthy affiliate and am committed to helping others do the same.
I really look forward to working with everyone and ticking these tasks off one by one!

Cheers!

Hello Brenda ... thank you for the follow. My favorite nephew lives in Auckland. He migrate there all the way from southern California where he attended UC Irvine. He became fascinated with the study of birds and ended up doing his PhD at the University of Aukland.

You are in the best place to achieve your goal. Affiliate marketing is simple ... but it's not easy. By now you have a better understanding of that.

I wish you the best on your WA journey.

Hi Dennis,
I studied at UoA too. And agree it's simple but certainly not easy. But I'm working on it :-)

Hi Brenda. In times gone by, I did some years with the Museum community too. I count it as some of the best fun I've EVER had in a job. I love people, I love giving lectures and telling stories - I love answering difficult questions - what could go wrong?

But at the end of each day of giving and projecting to so many, I often found it could take a bit to recharge. Do you ever find that?

Nice to meet you!

HI Ivy! Yes, I absolutely agree with you. And Museum people like us are super passionate about their Museums. Once you are a part of it you are loathe to leave it! Recharging is certainly a challenge for me too, and we have a tendency to take it home with us as well, right?
What department were you in? Sounds like we might have had the same kind of role too!

Looking forward to being super-affiliates together!

A decade ago now - at our Old Parliament House, teaching civics and political history. I loved it. We were meeting 40K new students each year, and seeing slices of the country that never turn up on surveys. I loved the connections! Loved all the students I met.

Yes, so looking forward to learning with the Super Group. :)

Wow that's very cool! I started nearly 20 years ago now. teaching cultural history, social sciences, through Auckland War Memorial Museum. That's my home. I'm still doing this however I've moved over to public programming now, needed a new challenge- bringing the Museum out to our communities more.
What I love most is seeing students return each year and then find they've brought their younger siblings with them!
Wow, 40k you are doing really well!

Welcome to WA - lots to learn here- stay focused - go through the Certification Courses first - you will get confused or frustrated from time to time - ask lots of questions - people are here to help you. 

HERE ARE 3 WA'ers Training Posts - they helped me - one is vocabulary you use here - one is a detailed use of your dashboard to find anything you will need - one is a plug-in to add to WordPress - that will help you build your sties. Hope they help - they did me This one I wrote - deals with how to "close" for the result you want. Stay with it - you don't need a wish of good luck - you need a plea to study the material and stay at it no matter what - it will change your life and hopefully the people you touch with your message.

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! :)

Yes, I must say the niche was/is tricky. I had several interests- gaming, movies, Star Trek and earning online. Earning online is what I know the very least about too, but chose that and affiliate bootcamp. My sponsor suggested Star Trek because its very specific and I must say I am a bit of a Star Trek nerd. But I'd already started the Learn to Earn with Brenda website. I figured out that my niche was grandmothers who wanted to make money online from the comfort of their own home. People like me. However I don't know how much of an expert I can be since I know nothing! This is proving tricky now I have to write my first Key Rich blog.
Do I start again with the Star Trek niche or stick to my decision to continue with Learn to Earn?
If I stay with Learn to Earn, can I write from the viewpoint of the student learning as I go and sharing the lessons I've learnt? Or will that take away from my credibility?
Apologies for the long letter!
Cheers Brenda

When I go to do research on a given niche to come up with concepts for keywords (and ultimately content), I ask a few questions of my niche.

**What are some products/services that people are purchasing in your niche?
**What are some questions they are asking?
**What are some problems they are having?
**What are some "how to's" that are useful?
**What are some trending topics in your niche?

Do some research, in could be as simple as a Google search to uncover a lot of these items. I personally start off my keyword research using this technique: This will open your doors to essentially unlimited ideas and concepts, from there you can plug in these keywords into a keyword tool like the one here at WA or Jaaxy.com. Hope this helps you out here Brenda!

PS. You can change your niche at any time, you can head in any direction that you like. :)

Hi David,

Glad to have you as my sponsor!

Ever since I read your latest SFI-ASH edition, I have been taking action and it's been great so thank you so much for the great advice!
I have been at SFI for 2 years now, playing with it really. But I have committed to being BTL monthly and am putting my head down to get my business up and making some money!

I love Wealthy Affiliate and have only been here for 5mins!

Cheers,
Brenda

Hi Brenda,

I'm glad you found SFI-ASH useful! If you check my primary blog, Top5Programs (which is hosted here on Site Rubix) you'll see that my main focus is on SFI, WA and three other programs, all of which help me promote SFI.

As I mention in SFI-ASH, SFI can be a good source of affiliates for business services such as web hosting and blogging (Wealthy Affiliate). WA has a lot to offer people in SFI.

So glad you are enjoying your experience on WA. I joined in 2014 and also loved it from the start. I moved all my sites to Site Rubix, or shut them down on my old host and opened new versions (such as Top5Programs) on my upgraded WA account. Never regretted it as it is top quality, secure and reliable Wordpress hosting.

If you need any help setting things up, drop me a line any time.

All the best,

David Hurley
