About Buildyournow
Joined April 2014
I hail from the Bahamas and am currently living in the Turks and Caicos Islands where I've resided with my family since 2003. My professional career, as a hotelier, is nearing it's end after almost 40 years in the hospitality business where I've held top executive level positions including General Manager of renown resorts in the Bahamas and also Turks and Caicos Islands.
I choose online marketing business as a post career job and is one that's becoming more popular every day. The luxury of having a home based business where you can work leisurely growing wealth and assist others to achieve the same success is a most rewarding and gratifying experience and I'm absolutely loving it!

I might add that I registered with Wealthy Affiliates in April, 2014 but after so much bad experiences trying to find a reputable online business opportunity, I simply never pursued any further dealings wit Wealthy Affiliate which was my mistake. I rekindled my interest only a couple months ago and now regret that I hadn't continued with them from the very beginning.

I live on the island of Providenciales that has a twelve miles stretch of white powdery beach that's rated the second best beach in the world...though its hard to imagine a better one as I truly believe it's the absolute best beach anywhere. You have to see it to believe it!

The Turks and Caicos Islands are one of the newest and fastest growing island countries in the Caribbean, still under Great Britain with its age-old Parliamentary system but with its own appointed government elected officers.

If you love fishing, I assure you that there is no better place in the world for perhaps the finest fishing and diving adventures any where.The water is pristine and crystal clear and reflect the different shades of blue.

I love most sports and am a sucker for physical fitness which includes jogging at least five miles daily for the past forty years. I live very near the beach...less than a hundred yards away, in fact, and try to enjoy it as much as I possibly can. Living or working in the Turks and Caicos Islands make you lazy because of the easy nature of the people.

This place is simply amazing and anyone who visits never wants to ever leave,

Hi DaidenBrianca, I really haven't been with WA for any lengthy time as I just joined a couple of months ago. Starting off, In thought I would never understand WA's system as there is a high volume of communications via emails and chats, but as you progress you find ways to manage them without much ado. your My knowledge of online marketing was absolutely zero. I dabbled in it briefly before but had little or no success to speak of. Possibly it had a lot to do with my lack of computer knowledge which I had to improve at all cost if I want to experience any success in the online business.

The knowledge I've gained from WA is outstanding. I decided to take my time with the training and absorb as much info as possible. I decided to spend whatever amount of time necessary to understand WA's platform and ask questions for matters that are unclear to me. I've learnt so much about Domains, Creating websites, SEO's and Key Word, etc and am now better able to relate to the training..

Th WA community is very helpful in that they will assist in any way they can. Many of the members are accomplished online marketers and affiliates themselves and a whole lot can be learnt from networking with them.

I am available if ever I can assist you in anything.

All the best!

Hello Build your now, sounds like you have taken in quite a bit of information! That's great! Are you aware that your profile says you have been with WA since 2014 and that u are in the top two hundred? Is this a mistake or have you been a WA member for 3yrs?

When I initially registered in 2014, I hadn't done anything with them as I thought they were just another of the scores of scam operators online. I never even answered their emails sent to me as often as they sent them. It was just recently that I took a personal interest to see what WA is all about. I didn't to deceive you in any way, but this is exactly how it happened with me and WA.

I not sure if i got this right. My question is how large is your image you uploaded to your page.
Reply
buildyournow Premium
Actually, John, I was able to work it out...all is well now. But to answer you, I had selected full size not realizing that it would turn out the way it did. I corrected it by simply selecting the smallest size in the drop down box. and it worked perfectly.

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! :)

Nathaniell, there's a miracle plant that has extreme miracle curing benefits and a health booster as well. Considering the millions of people around the globe with ailments, some hardly curable, I want to use this as my niche. I know it works and have gotten many testimonies about its effectiveness.

Let me know your thoughts!

Many thanks!

NB: I think I understand fully what a niche is and have a number of niches I want to setup on a website.
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Finding a good niche seems like a tough task, but it's actually pretty easy. Actually, ANY niche can make money, so you definitely should not worry if your niche is profitable or not. As far as competition goes, that's also something to not worry about. If there's competition, it just means people are making money. That means you can make some too! As time progresses, new products come out, new technology is introduced, new ideas formed, and each change is an opportunity for "the new kid" to get a foothold and overtake established websites.

So the big question is not "what" is going to make money, but "what do you want to make money with?"

In other words, what are your own interests?
What do you think would be interesting to research and write about?
What do you want to help people with?

A good sentence to help you decide your niche is "I want to help people _____"

Helping people is the best way to make money in any business. Everyone wins. Short of that, pick something that you just find interesting.

There are literally thousands of affiliate programs, products, and ways to make money in any niche or industry if you get creative. All of that will come into focus in Level 3 of your training, so for now, we just need to look at getting your topic chosen, your website built, and then start creating awesome content for your business!

Sounds like you already have an interesting niche in mind with your miracle plant! Natural health and cures is always a popular topic to write about.

Nathaniell...another question for you! I attempted to login to Jaaxy to look into Keywords for my site building. I don't know what might have happened, but I was notified that my email address was already registered. I contacted Jaaxy support desk to possibly clarified this but their response was far from coming. This is hindering my progress with my website,

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Did you do a "lost password" to see if you signed up at some point but forgot? Also, if you are creating a NEW account but using shared wifi, it will only allow one signup per IP address. Get on a new wifi connection (or private one), and create your account. That should work.

Let me know if those don't work!

My image on my 'About Me' page is not being uploaded after closely following the steps in Instructional video # 9 on building pages for my website. a message was displayed, 'HTTP error'. I tried uploading a image from among my profile pictures to no avail. Can you shed any light on why this is happening?

It could be the wrong file type. Make sure it's JPG or PNG. It might also be to large. Check the dimensions. Sometimes iPhone photos are like 3,000 pixels wide so it may need to be reduced.

OR, it could be a temporary error. Log out, then log back in and try again.

Let me know if one of those solutions works for you!

Nathanniell, this picture is one of those that are already on my profile images which I suppose would have been of an acceptable size to upload onto my 'About Me' page. Will try again or use another option as suggested.

Thanks!

What's up Eugene, just wanted to see how you were doing and if you need any help. Let me know!

nathaniell Premium
Hey there, I just wanted to check in and see if you had any questions about what you've seen at WA so far. A lot of people get information overload in the first couple days.

The one piece of advice that helped me when I got started was that there is a huge difference in success rates between those that interact with the community and those that don't. Part of learning all this new stuff is going to require that you ask questions when you don't understand.

So, my suggestion is this.

1) Put up a profile pic

2) Write a short introduction about yourself

3) Drop in on my profile to say hello

Doing these things will help you meet people in the community and see what WA is all about. You can start learning how to build a profitable business on the internet by clicking the green "Get Started Here" button on your left. I hope you enjoy your time in Wealthy Affiliate!

Hi Eugene, Nathaniell here. Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

I'm glad to see you've signed up and are ready to get started.

Before you start making money, there are just two things you need to know.

1) Those who ask questions interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their goals. Watch this video here to learn how to maximize your community reach in WA https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/completing-your-account-set-up-at-wa-adding-a-description-image

More buddies means more support. More support means more success.

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 https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1/getting-rolling. Remember that you can ask any questions you want in live chat, on your personal blog, or in the Getting Started Classroom here https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/getting-started

And don't forget that you can also access me for 1-on-1 support by leaving a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/nathaniell or by private message if you are a premium member.


★ ★ ★ How To Access Your Exclusive Bonuses ★ ★ ★

I also wanted to let you know that if you join the premium membership in this 7 day window you'll get a TON of awesome stuff.

First off, you'll get a 59% discount ($19.95 for 1 month) on your membership. Twenty bucks for you first month of WA is an absolute steal. This is available to all members. But I've lined up some other things which are a bit more exclusive.


☆ ☆ Bonus #1: Live Case Study 3 Part Webinar Series

Get access to a 3-Part-Series Live Case Study webinar. It's video series where a professional internet marketer creates a complete 'niche website'. All steps are included and thoroughly explained. Total length of the videos is about 3 hours.

This will give you a broad overview of the type of site you will create on Wealthy Affiliate. I think it's always a good idea to know the direction you are headed before you start your journey.


☆ ☆ Bonus #2: Exclusive Look at The Top 5 Newbie Mistakes And How To Fix Them

Some questions get asked over and over again. It's very likely you have these same questions.

This is a two-part bonus. It includes an exclusive video not available to other WA members where I create a website EXACTLY how the training teaches you. Many new members don't follow the instructions properly and can't get their sites to work. Watch this video first, and you'll be up and running in 20 minutes with your own .com hosted here on WA.

I have also included 5 newbie website design and setup tips. These are super easy ways to turn your site from a basic Wordpress install into a streamlined canvas ready for action, and ready to impress your traffic.

This means you will be able to bypass these typical mistakes, get started faster, and on the right foot. This is an exciting time - you are building the foundations of a profitable online business, and I want to help you get started as quickly and smoothly as possible.
