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.

Money Goals
1) I would be happy earning $2000 per month to supplement my current income.

2) I would be ecstatic earning $5000+ per month which would be more than enough for my current lifestyle.

3) Currently I have time to dedicate to this program, so I would conservatively 2 to 3 hours per day.

The challenge will be to stay focused!

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.

Chris, 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 Chris.

Thanks.

I am just going through the material at a steady pace and learning as much as I can.

Trying to stay focused is the hard part. Sometimes I catch myself jumping around, then I back up and slow down to get back on track.

After boot camp I plan to start a niche site for some products.

Sure, sounds good. Just don't feel like you need to learn everything at once to succeed online. You can be very successful online knowing a mere fraction of what there is to know. ;)

If you ever need a hand with anything just let me know!

Kyle,

Was there an option to make one payment for the whole year at a discount versus the monthly payments?

I thought I saw it somewhere but it is only offering me the monthly option when I try to upgrade.

You can upgrade to yearly once you are a monthly member ($359 per year, which works out to $29 per month average). You will see the "Upgrade and Save" button within the main menu or you can visit this page directly to move to a yearly membership (upon going Premium).

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/upgrade

The yearly membership will be pro-rated, meaning any extra time you have left on your current month will be applied as a discount to your yearly membership Chris. :)

If you have any further questions do let me know.
