About DBlanchard
Joined January 2016
Hi, My name is Denis Blanchard. I have been studying for ways to make money online for quite a while now. I had great ideas at first, but I quickly realized that there are no magic buttons, no getting rich overnight (even though there are a lot of schemes and/or scams out there claiming that they can).

This is how I found WA, I was skeptical about one’s claim and found it while reviewing it on barenakedscam.com. Well at first look WA seems pretty amazing. I am willing to work and learn so I believe I am at the right place.

Update April 2017:
After being a member for a while now I can honestly say that I truly believe that I have found the one and only place on the net that has a community feeling and that is genuine to its mission: to help people start and grow an online business. People here all have the same goal and help each other like no other place that I know of. WA rocks!

Update April 2018:
At the end of January 2018, I decided to join the SWAG (Super Wealthy Affiliate Group) and I am so pumped up!

I am proud to say that after a little less than three months, my new website is coming along pretty good! Not as fast as I want since I still work at my 9 - 5 full time job. However, my plan is that I will be able to update my profile one day soon saying that I am doing this full time.

I made my first sale at about 2 and a half months with SWAG.
All this to say that it is proof that dedication, hard work and persistence will prevail! You just have to believe!

Thank you Wealthy Affiliate and the whole community!

PS Even though I let my first niche on the side for now, I will be getting back to it, just need to concentrate at one project at a time for now!

PPS If you want to communicate with me, just send me a PM. I am always available to help! I have nothing to sell, I just want to help like I was helped when I first started!

HiDBlanchard,. Thanks for the follow, I am very new at this. I have my niche but I just can't seem to get this website building thing figured out. I've watched the video and read the part that followed the video on WA but I'm still lost and Confused. I've read and watched the video at least 20 times, I even went on the net and and read everything I could find there and am still confused any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Regards Donna
DBlanchard Premium
Hello Donna,
Can you be a little more specific? What is it you are having problems with, is it the building of the website itself in Wordpress?

I know Wordpress can be a little overwhelming when you first start but give yourself some time to figure it out.

If it's not Wordpress, then please give me some kind of indication of what you are trying to figure out, and I will gladly help you in any way I can 🙂
mcartneyd Premium
Yes it is building my website in WordPress and staying with WA a the same time. I'm having a hard time getting it figured out and I get Confused. If you can help me with this. I would be forever grateful. Regards Donna
DBlanchard Premium
Ok If I understand correctly, you want to follow Kyle's instructions form the training and follow through on your Wordpress website but don't know how to do it at the same time?

If you only have one screen (like a laptop) then the only way I can see you do this is to open the training in one tab of your browser and the WordPress website on another. You do this by right-clicking on either the training or the website menu and chose "Open link in new tab"

That way you can pause the video (if you are watching one) and then go to the website tab and work on it there. Same goes if you read a part of the training. You can go from one tab to the other and should be ok to follow the training that way.

I hope this is what you meant 🙂
RubenV1 Premium
Hello DBlanchard, I'm glad to have joined WA also. You put it into perspective that this is the real thing. I enjoy working on my site more when I get reminded that it is "my business" I'm working on. It makes me more careful of what I say on my pages. I like your insight of WA.
Thanks for your guidance. I will follow you.
DBlanchard Premium
Hey Ruben,

You are so right my friend. Your website is YOUR business and if you treat it like a real business, it will also provide you with the monetary perks that a business provides!

Keep on pushing!
gmcwilliam Premium
Hi Denis and thank you for following me. I agree with you that dedication, hard work and persistence are the traits that will lead to success. I am building a website in the financial freedom niche and advise my followers that this is the mindset they need. Earning passive income is certainly not passive....at least at the beginning. Best of luck with your online endeavours. Gary
DBlanchard Premium
You got that right Gary

Best of luck to you too! 🙂

Hi Denis,

I have been an Entrepreneur for the longest time.
Never had a JOB.
And its 99% of time the same old thing:
INVEST money, to MAKE money.
Scams on the internet are the majority!
That's the downside of the net.
So HOW are you doing so far, since I see you joined over 2 years ago.
DBlanchard Premium
Hi Tom,

I will be completely honest with you. My first 2 years here were not very productive and even though I had very good intentions, there was A LOT of procrastination.

I managed to finish the Certification course, and I would say that it would be my biggest accomplishment for that period.

My first website still has some traffic and trickles of revenue, but mainly because of it being there for almost three years( I have not put much effort in this one since January, but I will get back to it).

In January 2018, I joined SWAG and I have put every effort I could in this endeavor since then. I finally made money. Not enough to quit my 9-5 job yet, but at least it has gained momentum. I am not about to quit when things are starting to flow.

It all comes down to one thing: Work at it, and then work some more! There is NO magic button like I said in my profile bio!
I get up between 4 and 5 am every morning, 7 days a week and work my butt off before going to my J-O-B so that one day I can fire my boss!

I am now more pumped than ever, and my advantage is I will have 3 years (In January 2019) of experience with everything that WA has to offer and then some.

Let's do this together, my friend!🙂

miamibeach7 Premium
Hi Denis,

thank you for...this very honest and probably longest reply I ever received from anyone here!

I am curious, what is SWAG?

Depending on what industry you are in, the money is never enough, since a JOB is Just Over Broke, which my mom did, and my wife does.
I was on the other hand thrown into this world to do something different....and try crazy things.
Not everybody is meant to be an Entrepreneur, since that would just not work for the current system we live in.
It is also not taught in any regular high school around the world, HOW to be an Entrepreneur.
This is something that also has its UPS and DOWNS, but I would choose to be my own Boss! Anytime.

Please send me a PM message, about the SWAG...

Thank you and LETS DO GREAT THINGS Denis!
It starts with yourself!
Keep your mind open for new things at all times, you just dont have to do all those "things" that you come across.

Have a fantastic Halloween and a great week!

SBlandford Premium
Hello Dennis, I want to thank you for adding me to your network. I have added you as well. I must say that when it comes to WA there really is no other place like it. Just the fact that we can start this program for free is amazing. I know my daughter started a different affiliate marketing company and had to pay up front and didn't get the training that we receive. That in itself says a lot. Not to mention that here we meet so many people that are willing to help when we need it. Thank you again. Hope your day is blessed.
God Bless,

Hello Dennis and I thank you sincerely for your recent follow, and I wish to follow you in return.

I note you are well on your way with your training for which I congratulate you, also for initially joining Wealthy Affiliate and going premium as well.

You have no doubt discovered as I have, WA is an extremely honest and ethical organisation, populated by so many wonderful members being only too happy to assist each other in the online journey.

I wish you well in your endeavors - kindest regards from Ian in Western Australia.

Thanks for following me Dennis,I love your story it is very inspiring,I am still new here and still mostly on the training,I am having a difficult time grasping everything but trusting that soon I will be well on my way to a successful online business.
Best wishes for your business.
Hey Dennis,I see here I have to upgrade to access certain things, especially the training and asking questions, but my problem is that I'm so broke and its been some time like. I was happy that I have found something that would improve my situation but now the stumbling block is that I'm broke and I'm very mush interested in doing this program. Can I ask for someone to help me please I'm desperate. Thank you.
DBlanchard Premium
Hi there Jeffrey. Listen! Don't worry!

You do not have to upgrade yet! You can start the training and get up to 10 lessons for free. It depends on what your goals are.

You have the choice to start the Online Entrepreneur Certification if you have an idea on a niche (something that you can easily promote and talk about) or if you don't know where to start you can go and take the Affiliate Bootcamp and learn how to promote Wealthy Affiliate itself. Or you can do both!

Both courses will let you do all the 10 lessons in the 1st course for free, that should be enough to get you going.

You can also create 2 websites that will be absolutely free for as long as you want.

If you ever decide to upgrade to premium, these websites can easily be transferred to a ".com" or ".net" or whatever you chose for a minimal price of about $14 a year. In the meantime, they will be hosted on the Siterubix platform and will be like this: Yourwebsite.siterubix.com.

I hope I have eased your worries! Go and start the lessons, they are very well done and you will be able to get started right away!

And again, don't hesitate to contact me anytime you need something. I'm here to help my friend!

I will copy this post on your wall also so to make sure you get the message :)

To our success!

Very inspiring bio!
I'm slowly making my way through level 2 - kinda feels like walking through mud at times. However, when I read stories such as yours -especially when I'm feeling a little overwhelmed - 'm convinced WA is the way to go.
I wish for you much continued success here at WA!

DBlanchard Premium
Hi Susan,
Yes! It can get overwhelming! But with the support of the community we have here, all we have to do is reach out and they will respond (like that blog post you mentioned).

I wish you much success!

Helo Denis,'
I enjoyed reading your profile and I felt the love and the positive vibes. I just started WA recently. I quit my 9 to 5 job and I started a new career as a Life Coach. Something I always wanted to do but didn't have the courage to step out of my comfort zone. It takes time to start making a living from coaching and I wanted to do something while continuing doing coaching and WA is the perfect place. I was stuck in the beginning. I couldn't choose a nice beside coaching and one day I got inspired and now I am so exciting about my niche. Doing research and writing blogs. Its CBD. I contacted 2 companies and applied for their affiliate programs and they both accepted. I will start when the website is ready.
A new happy chapter started and it's fun and exiting. I moved out of Tokyo after 30 years to a beautiful place right on the beach. We can see Mount Fuji and the sunset from the terrace.
Good luck Denis,
BTW, what is your niche?
DBlanchard Premium
I started with a meditation niche about 2.5 years ago, but did not develop it very much, I procrastinated a LOT.

You can check my profile on the bottom right for the URLs, and in January started the "make money online" niche promoting WA.

I wish you good luck in your new adventure, my friend!
AdelCheffi Premium
Thank you Denis
I was also looking for a niche related to spirituality and meditation was one idea and the Law of Attraction was another one but I opted for Coaching and CBD. Actually I came cross WA while I was looking for a way different from SEO to promote my Life Coaching website. www.your-dreams.net. I changed the hosting to WA platform and all the settings, the theme and plugin, setting were lost. Now I have to rebuilt it almost from scratch and I am learning how to use WordPress. I will be a WordPress pro by the time the website is back lol.
All the best to you my friend, I will be following you and
Logve and bliss
DBlanchard Premium
Same to you my friend!
JonathanAll1 Premium
Swag huh is this what’s about pay to upgrade. I guess if I get the basic down it’ll get easier. It’s lot to take in with no results I have a niche but I’d have to be brilliant to know how to write on new website how long it take
DBlanchard Premium
Hey Jonathan,
You don't have to join SWAG to be able to monetize any niche you are in my friend.
I joined in January because it seemed to fit my need at that time, and it actually gave me the extra "push" I needed to stop procrastinating and really start to take this as a "real" business, not just a hobby.

Anyone who is willing to believe in what they are doing and really put in the effort can make it happen. The market is huge, with 4 billion people online, you just have to tap into a small percentage of that to really "make it happen"

I wish you much success, my friend. And if you need any help don't hesitate to drop me a line in my PM.
anusuya1 Premium
Hello Denis.

Amazing achievement. I started here with no knowledge on online marketing. Your experience is same as mine about this wonderful community.

The mantra is self-motivation, dedication, perseverence and hard work.

I look forward to learning from you.
Thank you for the follow and I follow you in return.
Wish you every success here.

Lsessions89 Premium
Your post has lifted me up today as I.m really trying with this system and am having difficulty picking my niche. My grown kids are saying,, "Mama, you know you can't do that! Why do you keep trying and wasting you time and money! You are not computer savvy enough to do a website." I told them, "I WILL do this because I'm going to have help! Just sit back and watch because I am going to do this, and I WILL be successful!" It's just hard having no one believe in me. Anyway, your post helped me today and for that I thank you! I AM NOT GIVING UP!
DBlanchard Premium
You are at the right place. Keep on going, follow as many people as you can and don't be afraid to ask questions. I wish you success!

morobtennis Premium
I am new here but I am glad to learn that it does indeed work, as evident of your first sale. I too am weary of the programs claiming to help you make 6 figures in 30 days or less. Either these programs cost an arm and a leg, or they scam you into just buying more and more of their products and services. Continued success to you. Keep in touch!
theManinRags Premium
Hello Denis, fantastic to meet you and thanks for the follow.
When I first read your profile it was like looking in a mirror.
9-5 job, - check.
Desire to do this full time, - check.
Making my first sale, - chec, um wait, oh, that's right, not yet!
Perhaps one way in which we do diverge is that I BELIEVE we can get rich quick. Don't get me wrong, I don't believe in scams, I don't believe in shortcuts, or that you can do this without hard work or persistence, but, I do think it's the quality of our ideas and our thinking that puts on the fast track to success. That's how we accelerate our progress.
I guess I just have to get out there and prove it!
Thank you also for alerting me to SWAG, I had not yet heard of it.
Great to meet you and I wish you vast (and fast) success :)
CandP Premium
Hello Denis, what a great post and so inspiring to us. We looked around for a long time too at all the scams out there and we were so relieved to find WA. We are still new and loving the training. Working on our first website. Best of luck and thanks for the upbeat message! Colette and Philip

Hey Denis!

Thanks for the follow! Congratulations for your progress so far, so far so good, keep going! Glad to hear that you had made your first sale! Now I understand that it could be more easier when you are promoting affiliate products than owning your own product, the time of progress is different between these 2! :)
DCarpenter1 Premium
Hi Denis You have achieved so much in a short time. I am way behind your level in WA. My biggest problem was procrastination, however I have overcome that & am moving forward slowly. Keep on going Denis as the training & help here at WA is unbelievable. BTW I am following you.
I wish you great success @ WA
Best regards from another
DBlanchard Premium
I have been here for 2 and half years, but my first year and a half was all about procrastination. I did not have the drive I have today. Then one day I realized that hey if I want something out of this, I have to do something about it. I have not looked back since!
WendaSue Premium
Hi Dennis. Thanks so much for the Follow. I've also added you to my network. I congratulate you on your success so far through WA. I've only been here a month. I'm still learning. Some days it is almost overwhelming. But, all the other days, make the rough ones worthwhile. I hope you have an awesome week. :)
All the best,
1Summer Premium
Hi Denis, thanks for the follow and I am following you too now.

Thanks for spelling out the SWAG acronym, I've seen this word before, but wasn't quite sure what it was and some writers don't descript their acronyms and forget many of us are still learning this business and the lingo and don't know the who, what, when, where and how of SWAG.

To your success!

VSoles1 Premium
Thanks for the follow, I'll do the same. I, like you, found WA while reviewing other online scams! I've been scammed a couple of times in the past 4 years and was really hesitant to join another network, but I agree that this is the best place for community help and a genuine family atmosphere of everyone helping everyone. I have only been a member for about 6 weeks and have learned so so much that I feel like I've finally found a "home" online..
maggie52 Premium
Hi, thanks for following me. When I listen to people saying what you said , I see that I am on the right track.

Yes in 2016 I was still busy following the scams and schemes online.

I was not a loss though because that is how I was lead to WA.

Thank you
KWahid Premium
Really awesome for sharing your story with us Sir!! Yours is a great one!!

Thumbs up for your willingness to follow me on my journey! I’ll be keeping track of our progress and drop me a msg anytime for support and advice...or heck just a hello!!!

Hi Denis,
Like you... I too was skeptical about the multitude of offers in the cyber world. I too came to WA with reservation but with the intent to learn what WA had to offer. Best thing I ever did in my search. Hope your development for your business goes well. I will be following you and look forward to hearing about your success.
KevinOConnor Premium
HI Denis,
Thanks for following me. I found WA the same way you did and I am grateful for that as the place I was looking at prior wanted a lot of money for training that is done here. May you have great success with the hard work and dedication you're putting in.
Enjoy and be prosperous.

Marcus2020 Premium
Hello DBlanchard,

I returned to Toronto from Beijing , China on July 9, 2014 after being there for 9 yrs and one year later decided to join the e-commerce joining the largest platform in this business. For three to four months I sold well drones, mixers, blenders and.. so I decided to get bigger without knowing well how really sophisticated the market was. Joined a lot of courses trying to learn everything but the real market was already operating in a complete different direction than was. I start hearing about social media more and more so I decided to join another platform thinking that by having access to buyers directly and owning the customers would be different and this become the beginning of my real entry on e-commerce. My store was beautiful but sales were not kick in so by the middle of 2017 I decided to outsource professional service wherever I could but one after other
I failed as you also discovered before me that what is there is not what we think it is . We pay ahead but the deliverable do not match what was promised. I did't believe this would happen to me but it did and has been frustrating me for a while so I decided to find something different and it seems that I made my best move since my return from China. I heard from you and from others that have joined WA before myself a great positive vibe. So now I have to work on my weaknesses ( IT and Social Media ) to reach my goals and intention . Do all Baby Boomers think alike us ?
Cheers and thank you for your note .Success DBlanchard

Hi Marcus,
You have made the biggest and best decision since starting your online business by joining us. Here, everything is possible, and the support does not compare!
I will send you a list of tips that I send my new referrals so that you can take full advantage of this wonderful platform.

I wish you success and wealth, my friend!
KammyBurnett Premium
Hi there. I do know WA is legit. I researched several other affiliate marketing training websites, and this one is the most comprehensive and community-oriented you'll find out there.

Internet marketing is one of the best ways to make money. If you look at most websites, they're all affiliate, with links in and around the content. Just get started, and know this will take some time and work. Nothing is overnight.

Wishing you great success here,
Cham20 Premium
Hi Denis,

Your situation sounds so similar to when I was in college, I tried for ages to look up many ways of making money online while I was studying but found it hard as there were so many scams floating about and I couldn't find anything trustworthy or affordable. I too found a review which lead me to find this platform and I must say I'm glad I've joined.

Thank you for the follow and I wish you the best with your journey!

JDwyer1 Premium
Thanks for the follow and I am glad to hear others share my feeling of being in the right place after joining WA. The people here have been incredibly supportive thus far and although I have just begun to tap into what is available, to hear people like your self that have been here for a while claim the same thing definately gives a feeling of confidence. Thanks again.
XavierTapia Premium
Hello, please to meet you and thanks for the follow. I was pretty much like you looking and searching for a good company to teach me about making a business online and affiliate marketing as well as making an income. I was enroll in a couple programs with some doubtful reputation organizations that thanks to barenakedscam.com find out on time were no good and withdraw from them.Later on I came across with WA and search and heard were and are pretty good people and have a fantastic set up and programs. So like you I believe we are at the right place.
I wish you great success in your journey and best regards from tropical Costa Rica.

Hello DBlanchard... I am inspired by your profile, with your two year badge! I appreciate your follow, as I will follow you as well. I just recently received my six months badge with Wealthy Affiliate. I know I have learned a lot starting without any affiliate knowledge or experience. It can be done!

I would be grateful if you could give me some pointers on my website, just when you have the time. I need some mentoring of where I am in the realm of progress, and I open to any constructive suggestions you may have. I had rather someone tell me like it is, so I can make the necessary changes and go from there. Thanks again for your follow... Clay

Hi DBlanchard,

Hi Denis. Thanks for the follow. I too became interested in WA thru barenakedscam. I liked his approach and how he presented the opportunity. Since I joined I have checked up on barenakedscam frequently to see if he is still as excited as he was in the beginning. The answer is "yes". I hope you are as well.
DBlanchard Premium
Cool!!!! It was through the same guy (Barenakedscam) that I joined WA back in January 2016.
Bevsownideas Premium
Hallo DBlanhard I am a newbie and still in the learning process,
Yes the WA team and some of the people here are very kind and willing to help. But I am afraid that I can only stay with WA team until end January and there is no way that I can learn everything which I have to know u in such a short time. I am from Namibia.
Anyway nice to meet you.

heikob Premium
Hi Denis, thanks for the follow as i will do the same. I have been here since 2015 and this is truly the best platform out there. You need to keep in mind that there no overnight rags to riches but it is rather a building process. I personally have build a few brick and mortar businesses, one of them is a gym and fitness facility that was establishe 15 years ago. Today we are still in business and going stronger than ever. It took us about 10 months to be writing black numbers. This is the avaerage to get a business going. This here is not any different. WA gives you the tools and the education, however you need to find the well for yourself. Good luck and Happy New Year

Howdy Denis, yes indeed, WA is unique, different than most other opportunities. Kyle and Carson seem to be very genuine guys. We have been members for several years and I can assure you that no matter where one goes on the internet, these two guys are very well accepted and respected. We are very honored that you seem to see what we see and look forward to a great future traveling the Internet Super High way with ya.

I can relate to Sam & Deb's answer. I too have been here since January of 2016, but lost focus for the bigger part of 16 and part of 17. Sometimes when life pushes you, you have to push it back I guess. Cheers to a better new year 2018! :)

Hi Dennis, You've been around WA for a little longer than me so I guess you like the membership.
Your profile shows you in nature & it looks cold. Where are you from and what are you doing against rushing water?
It is hot here in Oz right now and approaching Xmas a real buzz going on.
Thank you for following me & I have followed you too.
Merry Xmas & wishing you a great New Year.

I live in Canada. The picture shows me during an outing to a waterfall we have not far from my home and its during the fall season, so yes it is cold where I live especially from December to March. I do love WA and all of its advantages and the community feeling we have here. I wish you the best!

You too Denis, may you have a very Merry Xmas.

Nice to meet you Denis! Thank you for following me and will be following here as well! Yes, I can relate to your previous assertion of scams, and too was lead to WA! You know now after what you see WA offers, it's truly a top notch place to be and so fortunate to be here! Wish you all the best in your journey!

Hi Denis, just dropping by to say hi and nice to meet you! I have to completely agree with you WA does rock! Thank you, for allowing me in your network, and i followed back. I wish you the best in your business and your adventures with WA...

To your success,

Thanks, Denis, for allowing me to be a part of your network. I also followed you. Just like you, I found WA while looking for some way to make money on line. I was getting pretty discouraged when I came across WA. I was skeptical at first, after being burned a few times already. Also like you, I found that WA is the real thing. Nowhere have I seen such a large community of like minded, helpful and inspirational people. The training is very impressive and easy to follow. I've been here less than two months but I already know that I will be able to reach my goals. Can you imagine what our world would be like if everyone could develop the same mentality that we have here? Good luck with your endeavors and I'll see you at the top.

Hi Denis! Thanks for the follow. For sure, the get-rich-quick scheme is not a healthy way to prime one's attitude to doing business. Those who make money promoting the idea are making an appeal to some of our most base vulnerabilities. I'm glad to hear you're enjoying this community. It gives me a lot to look forward to as well!

Good day Denis,
I thank you for your follow and I am following you back. Although I have not been very active yet, I fully agree with you on WA. Wonderful people and great platform to learn and grow. I wish you the very best. Have a great day.

Hello. Thank you for the follow. I followed you back. I agree, there are no quick deals on anything. Just find your niche and work with that. I am new to WA too and this is a great community. I too feel at home here. I wish you success and an awesome journey. See you at the top.

Just setting up and learning the site. Thank you for the follow. Let's keep in touch and bounce off each other. It helps when you have someone to talk to about anything that comes up.

Take care,

Hello Denis ... thank you for the follow. You have to be careful doing a 'make money online' search. Way too many Scams in the mix, very cleverly disguised as the real thing. Sounds like you've been there ... done that.

WA is different ... way different. It starts with the integrity and honesty of the founders Kyle and Carson. Their mission is to make WA the absolute best place to acquire the needed skill set to become a successful Affiliate Marketer.

Affiliate Marketing is simple ... but it's not easy. It's a lot of hard work.and takes the willingness to be patient, persistent, and dedicated to the learning and doing prescribed in the training.

I wish you the best on your WA journey.
BPryga Premium
You are so right, Denis! WA does rock. Everyone is always willing to help and share any information they think may help you. I just joined in June, but am making progress. I am certain you will be able to meet your online business goals. As I have heard many times, it may take a little time though.

Thanks for the follow. I will also follow you.
ThaboN Premium
Hi Denis,
Thanks for the follow. I'm following you back. You are right in thinking WA is a great community to learn how to really establish an online business. There are no promises made, but I think you are given the tools and support to at least have a good chance at success.

Hi Denis. Thank you so much for the follow. I wish you great success in your online business. Please let me know about your website so that I can visit and leave you a comment. In case you enjoy love poems, you can visit my website at beautiful-words.org. Feel free to leave a comment. Enjoy.

There is a famous quote from Mark Twain:

"If it's your job to eat a frog, it's best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it's your job to eat two frogs, it's best to eat the biggest one first."

And that just means - do your hardest task first or at least as soon as you can in the morning. If you do this then the rest of your day is easy from there!


Hello, Denis thanks for the follow and welcome to WA. You are definitely in the right place!

People have plenty to share and there is plenty to learn also so take your time and enjoy the experience.

I may not be among the top 200 list anymore (because I don’t socialize here much) but I do have many interesting posts on my site (no seriously I do!) and some you might really like, many people do. I have over 5,000 positive comments, so take a look and get some ideas as to what you can do with your site.

Let me know if I can help you in any way

Cheers Peter :)

Hello Denis, thank you for the follow, I am now following you! I've just been reading your profile and I can very much relate to what you are saying. I've been working online for approximately 12 years and I wish I had found Wealthy Affiliate when I first started, it would have saved me a lot of money! I wish you every success in your venture and I look forward to networking with you and reading your blog posts.

All the best to you Denis, Roy.

Dear welcome member of the WA Community,

I too searched out the online marketing Industry, and found WA to be the top program. People here really like the community. The rest of the world do not know what they are missing.

How is your business going?

If you have not already registered for the webinar and can make it,
join Jay at 5: 30 this Friday June 23rd on a key money maker entitled "Product Reviews." Here you online.

MBond Premium
Thank you for following me. I am new to the site as well and can already see how being here is beneficial. I never imagined that I would have my own online business or that I would be in marketing, but here I am. Here we are.
Best of luck.
TomasB Premium
Hi Denis, welcome to Wealthy Affiliate, and thank you for following me. You found the right place to achieve your goals.

Hi Denis,

Thank You so much for adding me to your “Following”!!!

I have seen a lot of programs over the last 4 years and this looks and feels right!!!

I would greatly appreciate it if you would please let me know if there are any important tips that you think a “Newbie” like I am to WA can benefit from!!!

Best Wishes for Your Continued Success!!!

Its like anything else the more you put into it the more you get out. At first I was so worried about what I put in as far as content howver, now its not a big deal if I don't like I will take it out. wow, its not to hard to get confortable here.
ajones64 Premium
Hey, Denis thanks for the follow and I will follow as well. Yes, I agree with you WA does rock like no other. I do not have anything of the caliber to measure against WA. I waiting for my first sale or sign up. Good luck with your business. Much success.

Good morning to you Dennis, my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. I'm following you back. Of all the online programs out there WA is the only one that truly teaches people how to build an online business to earn an income. I watch Jay's training video's every Friday evening. I find them educational in knowing how to do something today instead of what worked a year ago. I could have saved a lot of money had I known about WA back when I first got started in online marketing.
I look forward to working with you and wish you much success in your online journey.
despatis Premium
Dear Denis, thanks for sharing and for adding me to your WA network, most appreciated. Seems you're doing very well, so keep on track and let's stay in touch.

Odam65 Premium
Yes same here, Unless you go to school on internet marketing , there was no way I could figure out a online business. But like you I found WA.

Thanks for the follow and best of luck. I beleave we both found the solution to our problem. "WA All The Way"

I think I might put that on a "T" shirt! LOL

DBlanchard Premium
"WA All The Way" Yeah!
Odam65 Premium
Right! Need bumper stickers too. lol
Dshart55 Premium
Hi Dennis,
Thank you for the follow. I'm glad that you've been able to find WA is the place for you and your achievements. I wish all the success. I know you'll always find the support you'll need. I've seen many people to continue to offer no matter what your needs are.

Best wishes
dpanic63 Premium
DBlanchard my story is similar in reference to yours.
Am happy to also be here and learning so to apply the skills going forward to generate the "Laptop" Lifestyle.
The first hurdle is meet, and that is FINDING a system and tools to get you up and running, the rest will follow.
Its the believing and starting and realizing that you have put your faith in the WRONG system that is demoralizing.
Wishing you much success brother.
DBlanchard Premium
Same to you "brother" :)
Mo1786 Premium
Hi Dennis , thanks for the follow, really true about online scams , was myself a victim of scams and through these very setbacks got affiliated with W/A while surfing the net, Always run a 'scan before you become a victim of a scam' all the success to everyone in their venture with W/A.
Stefcaz Premium
Hi Denis ~ My brother in law is a one "n" Denis so you must be a pretty good guy :-). I found WA the same way that you did and learning a lot on the site as I'm sure you are. Thanks for the follow and I'll follow you as well. Good luck!
CurlyCrazy Premium
Hi Denis,

Thank you for the follow. If there is one thing I've learned and seen throughout my life experience is that if you do work hard, success is a matter of time. That being said, I do believe you are in the right place.

Here's to Success!


laparra1 Premium
Good morning Denis,

I also think that WA is the right place to be. I need to be taken by the hand so to speak as all this technical stuff is foreign to me, luckily I am not lacking in ideas so slowly but surely I am advancing.
Thank you for the follow and good luck.

Regards, Taetske

Thanks for the follow. I just joined 1 or 2 hours back. I read your description above. And you joined in WA in January 2016. So, after 15 months of joining, how do you find WA?

Are you a premium member? Have you become successful in Internet Marketing now? If so, I would like to know about your success story.

DBlanchard Premium
Hi Alex!
To be honest with you, I started over a year ago but "life" got in the way and I really only "restarted" in February of this year. I have made some progress, but not as much as I would want. I do have a full time job so, I can only work at my online business on my "spare" time...However, I have to say that WA is a wonderful community and people are eager to help one another, and that what makes it so "real"! I truly believe that if you put in the effort, you will succeed. I wish you success and wealth! Cheers!
mandmdye Premium
Thank you for the follow. I had the same experience trying to find a place to take a comprehensive course on developing an online business while being able to answer questions. I found WA after some research into another affiliate that turned out to be a MLM scheme. WA from what I have seen so far is what I was looking for. Best of luck to you on your endeavours.
TheOldSilly Premium
Thanks for the follow Denis, I'm following you back, too. WA is much different (and better) than the vast majority of online biz opps, especially those that promise "get rich quick while doing nothing to deserve it" claims, lol.

Like anything worth achieving, success here with WA does require hard work, determination, and perseverance. But once you build a business the right way, offering real value to people, in order to gain their trust and loyalty, you will have a real online business that thrives and endures.
DBlanchard Premium
Right on the spot. :)
agunn Premium
Hi Dennis,
Following you as well...how has it been thus far as you joined more than year ago?...like you I have tried and been scammed many times and this has made me quite sceptical however I do want to give WA a try...I muz succeed in this online bznis ...
DBlanchard Premium
Hi Agnes!
Well to tell you the truth, I started over a year ago but life got in the way and I really only "restarted" in February of this year, and it has progressed well, not as much as I would want , but I have a full time job besides this so, I can only work at my online business on my spare time...WA is a wonderful community and people are eager to help on another, that what makes it so "real" and if you put in the effort, you will succeed. I wish you success!

agunn Premium
Thanks Dennis for the honest reply.
Yah... I think the community is really great!

Hello Denis, Nice to be connected!
♫Thank you for following me. ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA.
I am a fairly newbie to WA, but I have put my head into it and I am prepared to do the work needed to reach success.
My first road bump was to how to decide on a niche. I thought it good to write a post on how I got to a decision. Please read about it here and leave me a comment. Cheers for now.
….enjoy the WA journey

Hello Dennis!
Thank you so much for following me. I should have come by earlier but it has all been rather overwhelming since I joined WA. But here I finally am. It's very nice to get to know you a bit - and of course I will follow you.

I hope you are going on well and wish that you may achieve your goals. Yes, I definitively think WA is the right place to be.

All the best,

Hello Denis and Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you will surely have realized by now that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck then can I suggest you browse some of the 300+ blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me so thank you for the follow and I will follow you as well.
Remember - get involved.
Enjoy your day.

Robert-A Premium
Hi again Denis 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.
HisbelA Premium
Hi DBlanchard,
Thank you for following me, I do really appreciate it.
Reading your bio, it does seems that WA was indeed the right place as you are still around. I only found it a few days ago, and, like you, seemed to me the right place to be too, so far it has not dissapointed me, then again like you, I am not scared by hard work, persistance and patience.
I wish you the best in all your endeavours
All the best
DBlanchard Premium
Hi Hisbel,
You do have the right attitude as hard work, persistence and patience will get you where you want to go. I wish you great success, Cheers!

Kiwiazza Premium
You have come to the right place, i myself was in the same position and trying to search for a credible online source to build a business which wasn't a scam. WA is a fantastic training platform and the community is second to none.
thanks for the follow. Wish you all the best on your journey.
DBlanchard Premium
I agree! WA is the best! Top notch training and the community is one big family helping each other out!
kwikev Premium
You are right there are no magic buttons to success online. The formula is much the same as anything, real effort, real work equals real results.
DBlanchard Premium
I agree 100%. Discipline over procrastination is also a big rule! I have read you blog and it is very inspiring. I do have a full time job and this here (WA and my online business) is my dream job, but I have been way too much a procrastinator in the past year to be where I should be today with all the time and money I spent. But I took the decision a couple of weeks ago to put in the necessary work to accomplish "something worthwhile" in 2017, so I do put in the hours. It's not about managing time, it's about managing activities! Again thanks for the follow! Have a great day!
KelseyLim Premium
Hi DBlanchard, Thank you so much for following back. I reckon this is the best place where we can learn and increase your exposure on IM. The training and tutorials are top notches and I believe the WA community is the place you want to be with on your journey to build a passive income. [Kelsey]

I agree 100% Kelsey. WA is a great community!

Thanks for the follow.

I have wrote an article today on why to go premium, i encourage you to read it and get with the afiliate program if you haven't so far.

Feel free to include a comment. I am new here but i do have knowledge in online marketing due to me being a student, and learning this stuff at the moment.

I have made my first sale within not even a week of having sign up, and i learned my first mistake.. being premium is the key to success at WA.

Good luck with all and happy new year.
Hello. Congrats on your new found success! I'm new to this and I would be greatful if we could share idea's or maybe you are able2 show me some tactics to make my journey a successful one! Thanks
Loes Premium
Hello Denis,♫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 2016-2017. See you around, Greetings Loes
