About Cristo49
Joined September 2016
Was a UK printer for several years and running my own print shop. Shop now closed and time to move on. Retirement? Naah.
Looking forward to learning new tricks and new technologies. Plenty of ideas, just need the help and guidance to put them in place.
Update 1 A few days in and a no-brainer to upgrade to premium.
Update 2 One month in now, and I have learned such a lot in 30 days. My initial rank was 55,000. I put in 50% time to the Certification and 50% into the community, reading blogs, replying when I could, writing my own blogs and studying all the material available.
Now my rank is under 1,000, I am into course 4 of the certification. I have a website up and running, plans for a second one, and short, medium and long-term goals that I am working on.
The guidance that I have got from other members is great. Problems can be solved within the community. The support is stimulating.
Thanks to Kyle and Carson for putting together a great business model.
Update 3 Just got my 6-month badge. I have my first website online and a second one going live shortly. I have reached Top 200 and maintained contact with a lot of great people. Next 6-month plan firmly in place.
Update 4 Lost my Top 200 ranking in favor of spending more time on websites and research. Keep in touch with the people I identify with. Second website going live.
Thank you for reading this. Contact me anytime if there is anything I can help you with.
Best wishes, Chris

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.

Chris, nice to hear from you. I look forward to getting to know you my new WA friend.

I just left a comment on one of your posts. You have a nice looking site.

Have a great journey here with us.

Work hard, have some fun and don’t forget to ask questions.

A very nice boss once told me, ‘Helen, when you ask a silly question everyone else breathes a collective sigh of relief because they don’t have to!’ And that is so true. No question is silly so ask away.

If I can’t help I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Now let us keep in touch.

Ciao

Thanks for the follow, Chris. Just followed you back. Looking forward to working with you.

Indeed, WA community is awesome. I have tried asking for help when I was in trouble for couple of times now and it's refreshing when people give out their opinions and help you out. It's really nice. :)

All the best!

Hi Chris. You followed me quite a while ago and I am now following you back. (I switched off my notifications about who was following me because it was such a big distraction. I haven't acknowledged any followers or followed anyone back in a long time.) I am also in the UK and generally happy to connect with people. You seem to have made a great start.

Best wishes,
Isabella

And I thought you were just ignoring me. It is hard to follow everyone isn't it. I agree there are not enough hours to do all the things we want to do. I am retired now so I have allocated a good few hours per day to do the training and cut down some other stuff. Just got to stick at it. Best wishes, Chris

Hi Christo,
I joined 11 months ago and never regretted it even for a moment. My rank went down to the 300's then back up to 1,300's. Now its below 1,000 again.

The best advice for me has come from LeoEmery and his blog on 10 Tips On How To Succeed With Affilate Marketing.

Wishing you a great 2017!

Hi Roger, it's tough to get the balance right about learning and community involvement. I just read Leo's post yesterday. I would think that advice is spot on. That's the way to go. Regards, Chris

Thanks for following my progress and also sharing your very positive experience in our Wealthy Affiliate Community. Just started 6 days ago and finished Lesson 6. I can't believe that I can do this considering that my background is Accounting and Finance. Kyle and Carson is now my two Heroes. The program that they put together is great and the best.

Hi, Chris, welcome to WA, and thanks for the follow, returned. Seems we have something in common: I was a compositor in the UK printing industry when, apart from monotype and linotype, much of it was set by hand. Finished up doing DTP.

Wishing you much success with your online endeavors, if I can be of any help, give me a shout.

Hello Chris,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link on the right (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hello Chris and welcome to wealthy affiliate.
Since you joined you will have come to realise that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you haven't already been doing so, can I suggest you browse some of the 200+ blogs I have published within WA.
Thank you for the follow anyway and I will follow you as well.
If you get stuck you ask ok.
Enjoy your day.

Hi again Chris it’s a good idea (only if you want to) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.
Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing but.
But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.
Enjoy your day.

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my websites. My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live a month ago and the one on sleep apnea has been up for almost four months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you Chris for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. If you need any help remember to post your question in the comments section or on live chat, and someone will be able to help you.

I created a short but informative training tutorial for all New Members that tell you what you can do here at WA and most importantly give you a link to the RULES of WA and what you cannot do here. If you have the time or wish to, please check out the rest of my training (Bottom Right Blue Button) on my profile page. I explain ways to help you build a better website, ways to make some extra $$$ with your WA training, and best practices here at WA. I also post a humorous blog on first Sunday of every month. Enjoy!
