About DanielLara
Joined January 2016
My name is Daniel Lara. I was born in Brazil in 1983, in the beautiful town of Belo Horizonte ("Beautiful Horizon" in English). I am an engineer, and have two hobbies which I am extremely passionate about: photography and music. I am also happily married to my beautiful wife Juliana.

The current financial and political situation in Brazil is very worrisome. Therefore, I have decided to heavily invest in a 2nd job with earnings in dollars (a strong currency), besides my usual engineering duties. Uniting my love for photography with a desire to show my work and teach whatever little I know in this artistic field, I will blog about getting to know Brazil in pictures.

I found Wealthy Affiliate at a great and fortunate time, and hopefully the knowledge I gain in here will help me in achieving my goals. Eventually and whenever I can, I will be happy to give back to this wonderful community.

Oi, Daniel.

Sou brasileira também.
Engraçado não ter cruzado com você por aqui antes.
Só queria me apresentar e dizer que se precisar de algum comentário em português (caso você tenha algum site na nossa lingua materna) pode contar comigo.
Agora estou "following" você aqui.

Abraços,
Eliane

Maravilha, Daniel!

Passei agora no seu site e deixei um comentário no blog sobre sal do Himalaia. Muito bacana. Parabéns!

O site que estou trabalhando agora é em inglês. Não se sinta obrigado, mas se quiser deixar um comentário no meu post de hoje vou achar ótimo:

Heeey Daniel!

I identified myself with your story, I live in Venezuela where the situation is even worst economically. I visited your website and it's definitely a great one! Good job ;)

Curious enough, I wonder how much money approximately are you currently making with your website? I understand it is a little difficult at the beginning and I don't want to be unrealistic with my own income predictions.

I send you loads of blessings and the best of luck my friend!

Hola, Ernesto! Como estás? Verdad que estamos todos malos.. Por lo menos intentamos cosas diferentes para tener sucesso, creo!

I appreciate your kind words on my website. I will be brutally honest, as I believe feedback should be. I have made after 3 months US$12 from my website, coming entirely from clicks on advertisement (Google AdWords). My website's traffic increases significantly when I act on it, such as sharing something on Facebook or when I ask for comments here on WA. Also, I have recently discovered I was tagging images in a bad way SEO wise, and that probably hurt some of my blog posts. Other than this, I am happy with how it's going and I actually enjoy writing for my blog, so I am really taking it slow and within my free and available time.

If I had to choose a niche again, I would not pick the same one if my main interest was earning money. I find that it's hard to monetize and convince people to buy my pictures, and part of that is because my site does not drive them enough to purchase them. Also, my main customers have to be in the US due to shipping (otherwise the cost becomes prohibitive), so I am still finding my way around this

If you want to discuss anything in depth, please send me a message - I'll be more than happy to help!

Tudo bem mesmo! Obrigado pela pergunta, desejo tudo esteja bem contigo também!..

Thank you very much for your honesty, that is what I was looking for! $12 is not that bad considering where is the money coming from, however have you thought about offering some products from Brazil? or maybe looking for affiliate programs of full included trip packages to your country? I mean, if you ever want to make more money with that website you'll need to diversificate your opportunities.

In any case I know you haven't lost anything, but gained valuable and huge knowledge in this last three months ;) so you are definitely making a nice progress and maybe you can still bring more traffic and be able to sell your pictures either way.

Boa sorte Daniel! Um abraço

Hi, Feigner! Thank you for your interest - feel free to leave a comment on any blog posts if you wish.

For translation, I use "Google Language Translator". It's not actually endorsed by Google, just uses the Google Translator engine to translate the page. It produces mixed results. It's definitely not as accurate as actually having multiple versions of the pages, but I'm happy with the results vs no work at all ratio.

Hi Daniel! My name is Deborah, and I've been on WA for about three weeks. I came across your website as I was looking for one to review, and I loved it! I'm not experienced enough to have any constructive criticism for you, but I can say, it is visually beautiful, and your links work! Haha...I like that you used a black background. The current trend seems to be to go with white, but with the rich colors in your photos, the black works really well. Your ads are very smart, as well. I wish you much good fortune and success now and in the future.
Deborah

Daniel, 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 Daniel.

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

From the start I have written trainings for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post. It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right under trainings (click on my picture). 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

Hi Yaltza,
I just left you a comment on your website, which has some really good information. But I saw a few things that I wanted to point out to you, outside of the comments area, that you can do to improve your website. Here they are:

At the end of the fourth tip "4. Make them look taller", you wrote, "and makes it easy to play with the rule of thirds." Do you mean, "makes it easy to play with the third tip" or does the phrase "rule of thirds" means something else?

In tip 5, your are missing an end ")". The line looks like this, '(very people can survive this trial by fire unscathed. "

The tip "6. Bonus tip! Make sure to have fun", the title is centered while the rest of your tips are aligned to the left.

I really hope this helps. Good Luck.

DanielLara Premium
Hey, Billy! Thank you very much for taking the time to comment on my site and this particular blog post. Let me answer one by one...

1) Actually, rule of thirds is a concept/guideline that is based on how we usually interpret images. I agree with you that this may be somewhat unexpected without previous explanations. I will link this to the wikipedia article (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rule_of_thirds) opening in a new tab.
2) You are correct, and it should also "very few people".
3) You are correct again. I thought it would be an interesting change of pace, but it looks odd against the rest of the text. Also, the indentation was off.

Thanks again for providing these helpful comments! The post has already been adjusted.

Welcome Daniel to Wealthy Affiliate!

I am John and I believe you found WA through me :) I look forward to help you with any question you might have, and of course help you to achieve success!

It´s great to see that you are ready to start. I want you to know that you have made a wise decision to try things out here. There is no better place to be if you want to make money online.

What you do to get started is very simple:

1. Set up your account.
2. Go to “get Started Here” course!

You find it within the main menu (BIG GREEN button).

Or, with this link here: Key to success is to interact and ask A LOT of questions! I promise that you will get ANY question answered here!

The training is going to be the core of your success, you will be given step-by-step instructions on what to do. Each lesson also have an associated (easy to understand) video walk-through that is goint to SHOW the EXACT process. Those videos are GREAT!

What it takes to success here? Stick with it and DON´T give up!
Put atleast 6-10hour/week on this (more if you can) and things will start to fall in place very quick!

Remember to ALWAYS ask for help if there is something you are not sure of!

I have never experienced a community online that has so many friendly and helpful people, this is something that you are going to notice very quick! There is thousands of GREAT people here, you can learn from them, they are willing to help, and basically all of them had the same questions that you have at some point, me to :o)

BONUS!!

If you decide to become more serious and go Premium, you can of course do that whenever you want. However if you do it within you first 7days you are going to get the "action taker" bonus, your first month for $19!

I wish you Success!
John
