Hello, Madek

Your website is interesting with a lot of contents already.
One thing I would suggest it's working on the design part, making it more appealing.

Your contents look interesting, however, the graphics part can be better.

This is just my opinion.

Wish you the best.

About Divi I traied on the past about a year and the speed is bad very bad, the code is no clean, when you deactivate the plug-in is a lot of garbage code that you have to clean. Right know I am working with elementor and I think is better.
Reply
CalvinC Premium
Yes, I agree Divi is slow and because it has a lot of fancies functionalities is not always stable.

I use Thrive Themes, I like it very much.
However, I'm very interest to try Elementor, it has very good reviews.

I'm wanna try Webflow also, it doesn't run on Wordpress, it's another platform, like Squarespace, but I think this platform will do better than SquareSpace.

Hello Calvin,

Thanks for following me.

I'm an amateur graphic designer. I have had training back in the early 2000s but now I just do it for myself for flyers for my volunteer groups and now my website.

I research design elements from Canva mostly and tweek to create my own designs. I believe in re-engineering when it comes to graphic design.

I will add you to my Marketers To Watch notebook.

Thanks for reaching out to a newcomer.

Hi Calvin, nice to hear from you. I look forward to getting to know you my new WA friend. Sorry about the huge delay in responding but I am a bit slow at the moment. Trying to do too many things at once.

Well China to France. That's certainly a cultural change. Fun though; I tend to do that myself.

I see you have a website up and running. You might want to think about putting the links here on your profile page.

You do this by going to the right of your profile page, down to the bottom where it says 'Follow me on' and click on it. Put your website URL and any social media URLs you have (and want to add). This way people like me can hop in, visit and leave a comment. This makes it easier for us to follow you as this will be a direct link. And extra traffic is always welcome.

You should also do some more blogs here on your profile page. These go into Google too so add to your online profile. Also if you are promoting WA these WA blogs help build trust with your referrals. They can see you are really involved here.

If you have time I would love it if you visited one of my websites and left a comment on a post, any one will do. The site addresses are http://fantasy-sci-fi-vision.com & https://workingonthewildside.com.

As soon as you have a website link here let me know so I can return the comment.

Keep working hard, having fun and don’t forget to ask questions.

A very nice boss once told me, ‘Helen, when you ask a silly question everyone else breathes a collective sigh of relief because they don’t have to!’ And that is so true. No question is silly so ask away.

If I can’t help I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Now let us keep in touch.

Ciao
Helen

Hello Calvin and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep up with the training and keep referring to it but if you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 400+ blogs I have published within WA.

You can always get in touch with me as well.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.

Thank you Calvin for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. As a Premium Member you are now in the process of creating content for your affiliate marketing website.

It is important to fully understand how you should go about creating that content that will produce high Google rankings. Using low competition keywords is only a small part of the process.

Google has a set of guidelines for people creating content on their affiliate marketing websites. They do not like affiliate sites that are heavy on the selling and light on the help.

Though this may not occur to you in the beginning of your affiliate marketing journey, offering help instead of selling to your website visitors will yield more sales.

When you have some time, read the brief training at the link below which will explain Google's guidelines in a more simplistic way. When you help instead of sell, you will see better results.

Hi, Robert

Thanks for the advice, I totally agree with you, when you help peoples, peoples will help you back, at least they will remember you.

I like WA and its community a lot, it's peoples like you who can make us beginners get better and better.

You have quite an amazing career, I always dreamed of working in video games industry, I took a different path, but still enjoy video games a lot.

I saw that you sell on eBay, I also sold on eBay, but I stop because of their listing limit policies, they called me to update the listing limit to 100 items, I sent the documents, but they said it needs to be no electronics documents, I've tried many times and I gave up. I just don't want to waste my time on stupid peoples. I mean it's something simple, I did pretty well and they just annoyed me with stupid things. So I decided to focus on Amazon and I will open a Shopify Store and be doing all the WA stuff.

I'm so happy to be here in WA, it open my eyes to a lot of new things I will be able to do, the hosting is great, the site content tool is incredible and Jaaxy is very promising, I haven't used it a lot yet. Most important I will learn the most skill number 1 for me at WA, Marketing, when you understand Marketing you will be able to sell anything. I know it takes time to master Marketing, but I'm patient.

If you don't mind can you tell me more about your journey on eBay, I intend to go back to eBay when I will have more time, I got 2 good feedbacks and believe me I worked hard to get them, so later I will go back to eBay.

Anyway sorry for this long message, I wish you the best for the future.

I became a Top Rated Power Seller and made a lot of money because I was selling a lot of small new items from certain wholesale suppliers I was working with.

Then I started doing drop shipping, but the correct way and not with fake drop shippers or retailers like Amazon. I worked with true wholesalers that did drop shipping because it was not only free but my profit margins were higher.

I became a lifetime member of WBI and now I have access to close to 1,000 different wholesale suppliers, many that will do drop shipping.

But I joined WA because I wanted to leave eBay and start my own ecommerce website. The eBay fees were getting ridiculous and so was their policies. But after learning about affiliate marketing, I put the building of my ecommerce site on hold.

I finally stopped selling on eBay in June of 2016. I will eventually build my ecommerce website and use the free wholesale drop shippers I have access to from my lifetime membership with WBI.

You really have a lot of experiences, thanks for sharing them with me.

Yes I also believe having our own website is a must and eBay fees are really ridiculous + Paypal fees and as I worked with a Chinese partner, we also have to pay the Exchange Rate Fees when we withdraw the money, it's crazy. And as we send goods directly from China we have to add the shipping fees.

Amazon is a little better for that, at the beginning I know I won't make money, I'm trying to reduce my loss to the minimum. To have an online shop we don't have many good solutions, the best are Shopify or Wordpress + Woocommerce, I will use the 2 of them. I intend to build a lot of affiliate marketing sites also, but I'm at a learning stage. Fortunately for me, I'm pretty good for web and graphic design and sourcing products, I like looking for new products, It's really fun.

I know a lot of sellers do drop shipping, but I don't trust this method, I prefer to drop ship with my partner directly from China, it's one of my strength, I can have all kind of products directly from factories. I made a lot of mistakes during my 8 years stay in China, but I also learned a lot.

I believe everything you gain you will lose it somewhere else, to be successful we have to find the right balance, lol. The biggest problem I have is the shipping time, but many customers still willing to buy even the shipping time is longer, and the short time I sold on eBay also teach me some interesting stuff, so I guess it worths it. I still have a long road ahead, but I'm not afraid thanks to the great community in WA.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Calvin and thanks for connecting! My best advice for you is to work through the training and do the lessons as they are written. If you have a Niche that you want to work in, then do the certification course....to focus on offering others to join WA, then you want to work through the Affiliate Bootcamp. No matter which way you choose, the community is always available to answer your questions!

Wishing you all the best on this journey:-)

Hey Chhe! Just wanted to follow up and see how you're doing so far. Hope you've been enjoying the training offered here and the community as well.

You must be wondering if you can really make money after going through the courses here in WA. Truthfully, it can be done because I have experimented it and I know it works.

Just wanted to let you know that if you have upgraded to the premium membership, it covers the full spectrum of training, there will not be any further products that you "need" to purchase within the members area. This is unlike any programs out there.

Personally, I feel that the WA course is the best stepping stone for any one who wants to start an online business. You will be a seasoned affiliate marketer after going through the entire WA course.

See what the premium membership offers:

Let me know if you have any questions or need a hand with anything! I will be more than happy to help you out to build a successful future for you.

Cheers!

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! :)

CalvinC Premium
Thanks a lot, Jack for your help.

I have some ideas but I'm hesitating, there are many things I'm interested in, it's why it's a little difficult.

Do you think it's important to think in the long term, I know when you choose a niche, you have to consider writing articles on the niche, I don't mind writing articles.

For now, there are 2 niches I'm very interested in:

1.Having Coffee when doing outdoor activities, there are small and portable devices that can make pretty good coffees when we're outside.
I was thinking about this niche because I like coffee and I would be happy to write and make videos about the subject.

2.Game of Thrones, for that niche my idea is to promote merchandising about the TV Show and of course talking about the show, for some time I wanted to make something about this TV Show, I think it's a good opportunity now.

I would appreciate if you could comment on my ideas.

Thanks, Jack.

I have a question Jack, I think I saw you before on Youtube, it was about Copywriting, you give training about copywriting, right?
Reply
JackCao Premium
I like the first idea. I think a lot of people would love to hear what you say. But, don't restrict yourself to only potable devices for coffee. It is nice to start with that, but you should expand to camping and other outdoor activities as well.

For your second idea, I am a fan of GOT as well, and I do watch other youtubers talk about the myth and all the future plots and what they think the ending would be. However, I am not quite sure how they make money. Probably through youtube, but I would say this is a seasonal niche. After the last final season of GOT is over, the trend will start dying down, and you'll have to rebuild your business elsewhere.

I would suggest that you start with the first idea.

It's up to you to decide though.

Oh, I do have some copywriting materials posted on barenakedmarketing.com, but I don't provide copywriting training though.

Cheers!
