About ColWatt
Joined April 2017
My name is Col Watt from the Sunshine Coast in Queensland Australia. I am 65 next month, and after a few unfortunate years find myself having to start from scratch again , I have an offline business in Modular Insulated Panel Kit Homes, internet marketing has always interested me , so I want to learn how to build websites and promote my offline business as well as earn a passive income stream from blogging and content marketing.
The greatest lesson I have learnt from the internet is there are plenty of let's say not very legitimate sites to lose your money on.
What I have noticed is that WF seems to be very well thought of online so I am happy to be onboard to give it a try and see what I can learn.

All the best,

Hello ColWatt

Congratulations on going Premium.

I have found the weekly webinar very useful to watch and now that you’re a premium member you can too.

One tip though… be sure the topic being covered is what you need right now otherwise it won’t be the best use of your time.

If you can’t or don’t want to attend live, there’s always the recordings. (See “Live Video Classes” under Training on the left hand menu.

Wishing you every success with your business goals for 2018.

Thanks Mark, Appreciate the tips, and yes it is great to be able to look for and learn exactly what need at any particular time.
When you come in as a newbie it tends to be a scattered shotgun approach to learning, but this time around it is clearer in my mind what I want to achieve from WA , so this time around I can be more laser focused with what I need to learn to keep moving forward in my chosen direction.

Thanks again Mark I hope 2018 is a great year for you in every way.

Thanks Kyle, I am putting all my effort into the one direction now , that is the affiliate bootcamp. I think I am going okay and enjoying writing content, but I do have 1 question?
With my domain as my home page header, I have written a post in the hello world section under another keyword phrase, but for the SEO section underneath the article it won't let me put in the new keyword phrase, it's like it is already prepopulated with my domain header, going by the number of spaces already shown.

Also is it better to have a static front page, or does the home page change with each new post.

I guess I am still a bit confused about what constitutes a page as opposed to a post.

One thing is for sure Kyle, I am going to make this work as it feels so natural and right to promote a product that is helping so many people.

You guys should be so proud of what you have built here.

Thanks again.

Col, 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 Col.

Hi everyone, I have just run across a saying by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, that you may agree aligns it self well with what we do here in WA.

The heights by great men, reached and kept,
Were not attained by sudden flight,
But they, while their companions slept,
Were toiling upward in the night.

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! :)
