About Capefox
Joined December 2014
Greetings from Barry in Cape Town! I have actually been doing affiliate marketing for a while and am familiar with Wordpress. However, there is much more I need to learn. At the moment I have 5 self-hosted WP blogs online, all in different niches but my main interest is Natural Supplements.

I am a trained clothing designer and taught patternmaking part-time. I had my own retail outlet where I sold shirts which I had made myself. This came to an end through reasons beyond my control and I am now only wholesaling. I'm looking to improve my Inernet Marketing knowledge so that I can be a full-time affiliate.

I have some boards on Pinterest, adding pins with links back to my blogs, which brings some traffic. I look forward to improving my website and marketing skills here at WA.

Success is very cumulative in nature. Every action you take will add up to a much greater success. I can tell you that when you earn your first money, it will all become very REAL and it will lead to much more success.

Personally it took me a couple of months to get there (to earn my first dime), but by month 6 I was earning a consistent income. That is likely what your journey will look like...stay persistent and ask for help when you need it. I am in your "corner" every step of the way Barry! :)

Hey, just read your profile. You're from Cape Town! My fiance is from there and I spent three months there this last summer (winter for you).

It's a beautiful city and country and I can't wait until we can move back there. Right now we're trying to get her here to the US on a Fiance Visa, but we definitely have intentions of spending A LOT of our future in Cape Town and South Africa in general!

When I was in Cape Town a couple years ago I stayed with a friend in her flat in Tableview. Her next door neighbor made T-Shirts and tried to get me to buy one! Any chance that was you? Haha...super small chance, but you never know!

Anyways, I'll be seeing you around hopefully!

Hello, Dustin - Thank you for your welcome "letter"! Yes, I'm a born-and-bred Capetonian. You should see Camps Bay in our summer - it's the most beautiful beach ever!

My brother lives in Table View but no, I don't make t-shirts, I make "African" shirts aimed at the tourist market. I'd love to upgrade to Premium but the exchange rate is a killer for us here in SA. It's nice when I get the occasional dollar commission cheque, though.

It would be great to personally meet you some day. Good luck with
your websites!

Hey. The exchange rate would be brutal. It's nice the other way around though when I'm sending money to my fiance!

We'll definitely be back in South Africa many times in the future. Once we're financially able we're going to buy a house somewhere around Cape Town and live there for at least a few months a year. That's still a ways away though!

Have you had any success with the niche sites you already have up and running? Right now my only site is basically an authority site, but I'm thinking of doing my first smaller niche site really soon.

Hello, Dustin - I'm still struggling with writing content for my WA Bootcamp site - I only have 6 pages and 5 posts so far. I don't mind the writing, I just find it difficult to think of what more to write about in Affiliate Marketing, but I'll keep at it.

Before I joined WA I put up a few sites, of which I have 5 still running (the domains that were not performing I let lapse). My "main" site is on testosterone-boosting supplements (aimed at the bodybuilding crowd) which produces some sales; the others are on SUPs, road bikes, dumbbells - and Relationship problems (get your ex back)! This one produced just 1 sale soon after I set it up last year - and nothing after that. Ironic.

My Starter membership ends tomorrow, after which I won't be able to communicate via these pages. Saving up to purchase a yearly Premium membership. My e-mail address is barich@telkomsa(dot)net - keep in touch!

Cool. Well, on my Bootcamp site I mostly write reviews for other products. As I've built my site I've begun to promote a few other good products other than just Wealthy Affiliate. I think it's a bit sketchy to just promote Wealthy Affiliate and nothing else at all.

A lot of what I write are reviews of crappy products and then point them to the good ones. When I first started I was trying to write more tutorials and things, but chatting with the more successful people here, they all basically said the same thing, a great majority of their traffic comes through product reviews...so I took that to heart and started writing mostly product reviews and have definitely seen most of my traffic from them.

I imagine the same would apply to most any niche.

I think you can still leave and respond to comments on your page, you just can't access private messaging and the live chat? I'm not exactly sure I guess...

Anyways, the yearly membership is the way to go if you can afford the cost!

Peace!

That's good advice about concentrating on product reviews - it makes sense that people will be wanting to know about other products.

No, one cannot use these Discussion areas after Starter membership expires - have to upgrade to Premium to have that privilege. I'll be watching my e-mail!

Hey Barry,

I forgot to mention the other day that I am going to still be offering you my awesome bonuses if you join within the next 4 days.

Here are the bonuses that you are going to be getting:

(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. Where else can you access the CEO of the company for help?
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well Barry and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)

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 Barry!

Thank you for asking, Kyle - yes, I'm enjoying the experience here at WA! Am filling out my Category pages today. I think I'll retain my Beginner membership for a while, though, and upgrade at a later stage.

If you don't have the budget to upgrade at the moment, that is completely fine. You should work through the Getting Started training (within the "Get Started Here" button in the menu) and take action.

By lesson 4 you are going to have your own niche website up and running. This is the starting point of your business and is the foundation that is going to lead you to success down the road.

When you are ready to upgrade, I know you are going to absolutely love it but at your own pace.

Barry, 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 Barry.

Thank you, Kyle - I'm becoming addicted to WA!
1. I've published my About Me page - is it possible I could have it reviewed?
2. Is "Visual" mode on the Edit page just for Premium members? I get a blank page when switching to Visual mode.
3. I'm using the "Cleanr" theme - there's no option for people to leave comments on my "About Me" page. Should I change my theme?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Sure, let me know what your URL is and I will have a look. Comments are not an option on every theme (for pages) but all posts will allow comments.
Reply
Thank you - the URL is easyaffiliatecoaching.siterubix(dot)com.
1. By the way, I have changed the theme - the new one has the comments option on Pages, so that is fixed now.
2. I'm having a problem with these Siterubix sites - it happened on the previous theme too - sometimes when I open the site, everything is left-aligned and I have to refresh a few times to get the site or page to load properly. Also, on both themes my Profile image sometimes doesn't load, only the alt text appears - also have to refresh a few times to get it loaded.
3. Should I fill in the All-in-one SEO details on the About Me and Getting Started editing pages? I don't think you mentioned that in the video lesson. Many thanks!

It is obvious that you took my page off my website and rewrote it...even used lots of my images. You should be taking an initial concept for your review and then writing in your own words instead of rewriting.

People want to hear about your experience versus you trying to right based on someone elses ideas. It will come across much more natural this way Barry (I do think you are off to a pretty good start with your website though).

In response to your questions:

1. Great!

2. That sounds like a browser caching issue on your end, the site loads completely fine for me and likely others as well.

3. Just fill it in the initial time that you set it up. You don't need to do this manually for every page and post you create.

Thanks for your advice on the WA Review. I'll re-write from my own point of view and formulate my own review style. I'll also use different images where necessary. Thanks for your patience!
