About David4618
Joined July 2018
David, 45 years young, Christian, living in Esperance, Western Australia, a place some may consider to be paradise on Earth, and it is if you're into fishing, sports, pubs or 4WDing - which I'm not :)
Irregular-regular announcer on 103.9 Hopefm (a completely voluntary job).
Relatively new online entrepreneur: two months with Shopify, 10+ years with eBay.
I have struggled with severe anxiety and depression for over 14 years; 14 years is the official diagnosis, but I hit the depression wall 7 years prior to that, and I've more or less had it on and off my entire life. Not to make anyone here feel sorry for me or generally uncomfortable, but the last two months especially, haven't made me very happy. I'm not a great salesman or site/content creator, so I've not received the results I thought I was going to achieve by now, with my Shopify store. I've come across a bit of a sad sack on Instagram, and no doubt that has ticked off some of my followers - so I shall try my hardest NOT to do that here!

Hi David

As a very valued member of my Wealthy Affiliate Network, & whose blogs and contributions I enjoy reading, I have updated my own blog today with a new review post, which, if you have no objections am sharing it


You may well have read my blog before, but, in case you haven’t, let me direct you as to the best way to use it, so that you can navigate around if you wish to.

On the top bar, you will see a resources tab. Click on this and it will explain about a very proven traffic generation strategy, I have used for well over 10 years.

The tabs under the resources page, are tried, tested and proven resources which again I have used over the period of the last 8 or 9 years very effectively.

On the RIGHT HAND Sidebar, you will see the word Categories. Click Select a Category and from the drop down list, you will see a variety of social media categories predominantly. Which contain some very useful information, that you may not know.

I like to keep things seperate, for ease of reference

If you would like to comment, feel free and equally, please feel free to send me your latest blog updates, so I can do likewise

I have found, since being here, that by reading others profiles and blogs, that some great ideas, tips and hacks have been discovered, you might feel the same way

Anyway enough of my waffle ; ) , enjoy the latest review & thanks again for reading it

Dave :)

I want to welcome you to WA’s premium membership. This was a huge decision you made which should help you succeed as a successful online business owner by taking your business to the next level.

I can remember when I went to premium membership back in September, 2009. This was a decision I have never regretted. As a premium member you have access to additional WA resources which are very helpful to your success. I like the weekly live Webinars at 5 PM Pacific by Jay Neill. These weekly webinars have been very helpful to me and my online business.

I want to wish you all the best as you become a very successful online marketer. Please share your success with the WA community.

Best wishes,

Groovy. Proves Instagram is awesome for traffic, right?

Integrate instagram into your online business, if you haven't already. One of the best ways to get free traffic I've ever discovered.

Welcome again to Wealthy Affiliate, it's all here. Follow the training and if you get stuck on anything, just ask. We've all had similar experiences.
