About Cbarnes1
Joined July 2016
As a real estate investor and internet junkie, I have made money both offline and online with different businesses.

I learned that there is no quick way to make money unless you get lucky and your at the right place at the right time. It takes a lot of work, no matter what your niche is.

After having a successful dropshipping business and burning out from the day to day complexities of running it, I stepped away from the web for a short time to decompress.

Then I discovered affiliate marketing.

Many of the problems that I really didn't want to deal with such as shipping products, handling customer issues and being stuck to one location were eliminated with affiliate marketing.

So I joined Wealthy Affiliate and set up my blog to take advantage of the affiliate marketing business model.

Sell others peoples products without the headaches!

This is a great way to make money online and I look forward to networking with others interested in doing the same.

The challenge will be to stay focused!

Hey Chris, I have a question for you. Can you tell me more about droppshipping and how you make it work with Wealthy Affiliate; I thought about dropshipping eons ago but I always thought it was complicated. Can you tell me about it and what you have made and done to make your dropshipping business a success?
cbarnes1 Premium
I actually haven't done any dropshipping in years (2011).

I did it for 4 years and had some success but it wasn't what I really wanted.

I was stuck dealing with customers and many other small tasks such as updating the website, dealing with vendors as well as returns.

Profit margins for the products I was selling were low which didn't help.

I wanted a business that I could run from any location without all the everyday tasks that come with a dropshipping business.

That is why I got into affiliate marketing.

Oh ok. Smart transition Chris, it's what I did too when the headache that was freelance writing and the money started degenerating.

Hi Chris,

I'm really excited to have stumbled across your page, leading me to WA. RIght now, I'm trying to set aside as much time as I can outside of my 9-5 to get my page going. How long were you active on WA until you finally saw meaningful income?

Thanks for reaching out!

Hi Stevie,

For me was about 1 1/2 years due to the fact I didn't really put much effort into writing content in the beginning.

I also chose the bootcamp course which is the make money online niche. It is very competitive and you need a lot of content before seeing any results.

I would like to try another niche because I have some ideas but not sure if I have the energy now.

Anyways how quickly you make money really depends on what niche you choose, some luck and the amount of time your able to dedicate.

There are some people that have made decent money after 6 months.

Here is a link to some success stories for motivation. Chris

Hello Chris and welcome to wealthy affiliate.
You will probably know by now that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve. Therefore can I suggest you browse some of the 240+ blogs I have published within WA.
I'm sure you will go away with lots of tips and advice.
Thank you for the follow as well and I will follow you.
Remember, you get stuck creating a site or anything else, you ask ok.
Enjoy your day.

Thanks Robert.

I browsed some of your articles about SEO this morning and I would like to learn about optimizing pages and articles.

So much to do, so little time!

Hello Chris
I know you're just starting out but It doesn't pay to just browse those blogs of mine Chris.
You must have commitment, dedication and put in maximum effort to make money online.
This said you also have to take the WA training and lessons one step at a time and fully understand one before moving on to the next.

So you are right in a way - so much to do, so little time.

That last bit isn't exactly true because you must always go at your own pace.
Any faster and you WILL make mistakes and these can be costly.

Now I leave you to get stuck in and if you need help, tips or advice then get in touch.
