About Craig Ferdinands
Joined November 2010
I am 22 and I want to start having time and money to enjoy my family, friends and have a heap of fun. In essence, that's why I'm here...

I'm taking control of my financial future right now and with some patience and determination I'm certain I'll succeed.

looking forward to meeting all you wealthy and aspiring to be wealthy affiliates.

THE ABOVE is what I wrote when I first joined...

Now, I'm here because I love internet marketing... Not just the lifestyle it may bring. but everything about it. Maybe its just being here at WA but IM itself is so exciting and I can't wait to learn more and start seeing results...

Hi Craig, how are you going? I've been busy with my normal job so I haven't been able to do any IM lately. Maybe I just need a boot up the butt! ;)

That sounds great! Let me know how you get on or when you have finished I would love to see what you have been up to.....it seems so cloak & dagger, 007 secret service stuff.....very exciting.

haha... maybe you do...

Have you begun any projects and have an action plan for them? If yes, then just start doing it and the rest will come to you.
I've actually been away from WA for a while... Focussing on a much bigger project I've got going on. Its an online/offline business that I'm working on and there's a lot of work to start up but if it works, its going to be a real gold mine.

Hi Craig, it's me Suzie. I have finally tracked you down on WA! It's been a wild ride so far with so much info in here to absorb, but I have created my first campaign and now I am in the process of backlinking :( I think that has to be one of the boring parts of IM for me. You were right though...WA is great! I have learn't so much in here & it is a great place for newbie IM's like me to start. Thanks for steering me in WA's direction Craig :-)

Hi Craig, Yes I got that message I wondered if you were talking about me. I think your original message might not have gotten through due to the massive earthquake we had here and our broadband went stupid that day.

I have started a "teaser" campaign - not sure if I am doing it right so I just had a go to see what would happen. So I worte and submitted an article on Ezine articles about my favourite dessert recipe then I set up a landing page on blogger about dessert recipes with an affiliate link to a dessert school, so then I came back here to see what to do next, but as I went further in the getting started training, I am not sure if I researched my niche or designed my landing page properly. Who knows, but I will see what happens when my article is published.

I am on the Platinum package - it is the better one. I will have a go at one of the Niche Q packages they have on here, there are two I am interested in.

What I am a bit confused about is do you have to build an entire website for every campaign you do?
Any advice would be appreciated :)

P.S If you ever need a "WA point of view" on your MMM site from a newbie, I would be glad to help out......this place is great! Thanks Craig:-)

I have yet to build my backlinks and with Ezine it takes awhile before they publish articles (about 10 days for newbies) but it has given me time to research a bit more. How are your campaigns going?

Hey Suzie... Did you get my message that I sent out to my list today? You were one of the 2 people I was referring to. I tried to email you but I kept getting my email returned to me with a failure notification...

Amazing, to hear that you're so quick already... why don't you tell me a little bit about your campaign and how you're doing things...

Maybe I can give you a few pointers, or who knows, i might learn something from you... So glad to have you here Suzie... :)

Well its a wonderful thing that only your broadband was affected. Or at least I hope that was the only thing affected. How's the campaign coming along. going good?

making sales here and there... especially for one of my physical products on Amazon... It converts so much better than the e-products... :)

Working on a much bigger project right now though, with a team of people... Looking forward to a year long adventure... :)

Hi Craig.....Today I signed up with Wealthy Affiliates because I want to earn money online and WA seems to be a great vehicle in which to learn it. I think it would be great to work with you. I have been exploring the internet world for quite a while now and am very happy to have discovered WA.....I think it is just the ticket to learn and prosper. Hope you are having a great day and I look forward to hearing from you. Best regards, Jane

Thanks for the buddy request Craig! Hope the Club is treating you a bit better now :)

It never treated me badly. :)

but either my security settings or Marcus' Aweber aren't too happy to give me all the emails.

I get the emails on even days, but so far I haven't gotten a single odd day email. I'll find out if that trend continues in about 12 hours. :)

Hi Craig. Getting back to you as promised. EZA simply referred me back to their training material: http://ezinearticles.com/training/ All they said was write good articles, duh! Can you tell I am not in love with EZA? The forum here is a better place to pose the question.

It starts today, Tuesday the 18th. Follow your instincts.

Thanks. I just had a light bulb day yesterday. I just realized that its so much better to have a few well ranked articles than several articles that aren't on google's first page. :)

its going to change my article marketing.

PS: when is the club starting?

Want to know something about article marketing. Once you write lets say 30 articles and they get on top of the SERPs. They start bringing in some decent traffic and you make sales... can you then leave it at that 30 articles? will you continue to get a stream of traffic? Or will google sensing no activity on those articles push it into some old cobweb covered "soft-storeroom"?

cheers,
Craig.

Hello Craig, first i'd like to welcome you to WA (I am new as well), secondly i'd like to congratulate your website and on your first sale. This shows great determination.
cheers

hey bro,
thanks for the welcome... but about the website, its still in infant stages... at the end of this next stage of the action plan which is 7 days long, I intend to have it up and running. Looking more full and ready to market. :)

about the sale... It hasn't been completed yet. :) Its a fish on the hook, but I don't want to celebrate early cos a fish on the hook is not a fish in the pot.
cheers... :)

thanks bro... not much yet... trying to get started up with a blog for one of my marketing campaigns... but not really moving, cos I don't know enough about SEO strategies that I should implement, and the layout of my wordpress express blog isn't helping reduce the confusion...

hope stuff's better with you.

cheers.

Kong... that's a powerful name... I completely understand your post about WA consuming your life... Its a never-ending enthralling maze that contains some powerful elixir that makes you want to keep going and going, until you realize its way too late and you should sleep cos you've got a mundane job to drag your butt to the next day... cheers
