About BrendanB1
Joined April 2017
Hi, Brendan from beautiful South East Queensland Australia.

After 20 successful years in the Mining Industry, recently married and our first child on the way, 4 years ago I had a mid-life retirement. For 2 years I supported my wife through her pregnancy and then spent quality time with our new born son.

For the last 2 years I have been working as a Finance Broker and recently started looking at ways in which I can develop a passive income on the side. Which is how I stumbled across WA ????.

Looking forward to learning from the community.

Have a wonderful day

Brendan

Hello Brendan, how are you this fine day and how's the WA journey going. I have just set up an Analytics account and am very chuffed about that. Have an enormous amount to still learn before I can be reasonably satisfied with my skills. More training needed and more guidance from the experienced "players".
Keep well my friend.

Hi Brendan,
WA is enjoyable hey. Hope we can make a few buckaroos here soon :)
Think that the key will be to keep walking along the road and not pack it in, and to learn as much as we can and write as much as we can and communicate within the community as much as we can.
So much to learn, but there are great "players" out there who are very generous with their time and advice.
Keep well my friend.

Hi Brendan, how's the WA journey going? I've been training hard as time allows, and have reached the stage where I now know how to add links to my pages. Quite exciting. Now to find out how to drive traffic to my site. Realise that helpful content is important but how do we get the traffic there in the first place ie. so they come to the site to read the content? Onwards and upwards !

Hi Roy, for me WA is one of the most amazing communities to be involved with.

Getting traffic to your site is one of the main elements of the training that Kyle provides. The underlying aim is to get traffic to your site through SEO. Traffic through SEO are people who are looking for the information that you are providing and are most likely to buy as a result.

There are many other methods, from social media to advertising. Between the training from Kyle, and the discussions which go on within the community via questions, blogs and trainings, there will be plenty of opportunity for you to learn about many methods of getting traffic to your site.

Best wishes with you journey. See you around the community.

Have a wonderful day :)

Hi Paul,

Thank you for having a look at my site. I have an issue with my theme that I am currently trying to sort out. Half those posts do have a featured image set, just not showing.

Will get it sorted soon. It is one of the items at the top of my to do list to resolve.

Thanks again

Have a wonderful day :)

Hello Brendan,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Welcome to WA! I've been here for about four weeks and have made some real progress. Although I haven't made any money yet, I've been able to build out my website to a pretty good place. I've been following the training and found it very helpful.

If you wanted to check out my website, this is it: www.preparetoact.org. It's about women safety, product reviews, blogs, etc... Feel free to check it out and give me any advice you might have. Don't expect much, I'm still learning. lol

Feel free to follow me as I have you and let me know if I can do anything to help you in any way.

Thank for the warm welcome Chris. It has been a hectic couple of days getting my head around all of the information on WA. Starting to get my site put together, hope to have the first couple of pages of content up over the next 24 hours. Then I can start systematically build it out.

Like the look of your site, you got some great engagement going on. Good luck, I am sure the first sales are just around the corner.

Thanks again

Brendan

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! :)

BrendanB1 Premium
Thanks for reaching out Kyle.

Decided to run with the niche - travel photography.

Targeting holiday makers / amateur photographers

Going with mytravelphototips for a website name.

Hey there Brendan, welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! I am Josh and as promised on my website, I am here to help you get started building an online business. If you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, please do let me know.

As a new member here, you should check out the Online Entrepreneur Certification getting started course (Level 1). (This is how I got started 4 years ago. This is a task based course that will get you taking action on daily tasks that will lead to you building web assets. Here is the link that you will see within your main menu labeled "Get Started Here". The bright Green Button HOW TO CLAIM YOUR BONUS
-----------------------------------------------

As promised on my website I would like to invite you to join Premium within the first 7 days to unlock the bonuses: (Don't feel pressured into going premium immediately, unless you want to of course. Take your time and explore the vast opportunity here within Wealthy Affiliate. But make sure you update you profile and click on the green button to get started at the very least)

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)
(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there. Use my years experience to your advantage.
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Cheat Sheet To Success Bonus" - This is a list of the steps I take to making money quicker and easier following along with the WA training.

But only if you go premium in your first 7 days - this is what I call my "serious action takers" bonus which is not offered to just anyone. Show me you are serious and want the upper-hand on the competition by taking action ).

Anyways, thought I would just introduce myself and if you have any questions going forward, let me know. :) Wonderful to have you as part of the community here at WA!

Look Forward To Talking

Josh
