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 SAC (Super Affiliate Challenge) and I am so pumped up!

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/super-affiliate-challenge-12-month-intensive-training

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!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update April 2019:
Working part-time at this is NOT easy but it is very rewarding if you stick to it!

As of April 1st, 2019, I have managed to write 126000 words which makes up 8 pages, a couple of landing pages, and 72 articles, which is not a lot, but it's what I was able to do with the time available to me.

I have managed to build an email list that I have accumulated by offering an ebook and I use Aweber as my email autoresponder.

My Social media presence has helped increase my traffic, and most of my social media referral traffic is from Pinterest and Twitter. I have not been able to get Facebook going as much, and this is something I will work on during the next year.

My organic traffic (from search engines) has increased exponentially in a year.
I have a bunch of articles that have made it to page one of Google and the result is I am getting more and more referrals.

However, because I can only work nights and weekends at my online business, it will take me longer than someone who works at this full time but I am confident that I will cross the finish line, but probably like the tortoise and not the hare!

Which is fine by me. :) I am looking forward to retiring from my full-time job (A few years to go) and this will be my full-time hustle.

We all have different paths to follow and mine is to create a solid online business to fall back on when I do retire (probably sooner than later if things keep on going like they are).

All I can say is that Wealthy Affiliate works!

All you have to do is apply what you learn here and never quit! You will get there eventually!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

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 pay-it-forward and help like I was helped when I first started!

And don't forget to have fun while building your Online Business!

I am sure you can. Many WA members have achieved it and I do not see why you can't. I have the same goal as you, and I do not want to work for someone else for the rest of my life, you never know when they will stab you at the back. It is always nice to have something to fall back on. Keep it going!

Cheers!

Wow, Dennis, thank you for stopping by and thank you for your inspiring profile and I need to get mine up and running. I am inspired by your story. Yours is filled with all the lessons and the blessings all in one. It is stillI incredible that you could write 126 000 words while doing a 9-5 job, I have to give you a high five right there. I am still "newbie" still few days old & learning, by watching and peeking at other's posts, so it helps to have a wonderful and amazing community that has your back, so crazy about you getting ahead and even cheering you on when reach a certain milestone. When I am typing this on the keyboard gives me goose bumps. I will be taking you up on that "paying forward" offer. It seems you have a lot to offer. Thank you and best of luck.

Thanks for the kind words Zinzi!

You are absolutely right about this amazing community that has your back. We are a gang of like-minded people taking care of each other!

And to reiterate that thought, hopefully, you will take me up on my offer and ask for help whenever you need it! Pay it forward works and it comes right back at you!🙂

Hi Denis --
I could relate to a lot of what you said in you bio about your background. Similarly I searched for legitimate work-from-home opportunities and I examined what they offered. Also, I should mention I am very new to WA -- just involved in the initial training.
Since I am from a medical research background where I regularly did literature research, I am used to being critical -- however, my knowledge about computers is totally different than what is needed at WA.
Learning this material at WA is something I enjoy because I have been exposed to a lot of the terminology before. Due to the work that I did in biotechnology I did not learn the same information.
I found the explanation that Kyle gave very helpful about how affiliate marketing evolved due to the bankruptcy of numerous retail companies. And how online purchasing is increasingly online now, with affiliate marketing being an integral part to ensure that a product is sold.
I am having trouble WA!
Richard
P.S.
If you are interrupted during a session with Jay can you listen to it at another time?
Reply
DBlanchard Premium
Yes you can Richard. Jay's webinars are on the live training tab on the left of the main menu. ALL of them! From years past....

I suggest you do as I did and take it one step at a time and follow the training to a tee. The training is made in a way to learn and build your business at the same time.

Don't hesitate to reach out and send me a PM if you need anything 🙂

Thanks for following me Denis. I'm surely to follow you as well. It's motivational to follow people with the same goals and know how to do it. I have couple of question. When should I start using aweber and starting to make an email list? And how do I make an ebook?
Reply
DBlanchard Premium
Those are two GREAT questions, Fred!

List building is a very important part of your online business. An email autoresponder is also a great way to build this email list.

However, my answer will be "It depends on your niche and how much are you willing to spend right now".

I chose Aweber because I am now in the MMO (Make money online) niche and most of the "free" email autoresponders don't allow that niche.

I had (prior to changing niche) Mailerlite, which I still use on my other niche and it has a Free plan for up to 1,000 subscribers. So you see you can start right away if you are not doing Bootcamp.

As for writing an ebook, it's as easy as writing it in Word, then saving it in a PDF format and inserting it on your website as a free exchange for an email address.

There are a lot of pieces of training right here on WA to help you out just type in "create an ebook" in the search bar and there are a lot of results...

Hope this helps! 🙂

Fredeim88 Premium
Thanks alot for getting back to me Denis. Why can't you use free email responder while you have a making money online niche? Is it due legal terms? It's not relevant for me yet, however I think it will be in time. My niche is to offer guidens trough traveling guides, articles news and so on for travelers. Do you think I can benefit from using a free service? And is it possible to convert the mailing lists to Aweber in later stage?
Reply
DBlanchard Premium
You can definitely import your list anywhere you want. It's YOUR list!

And yes most (probably all) of the free email autoresponder doesn't allow the make money online niche because of all the spam and very low-quality programs/systems out there.

That is actually what I do, I expose them (the schemes and scams) on my blog and divert them here to WA!
Reply
Fredeim88 Premium
Fantastic! thanks for your help and your time. Now I can relax a bit and seriously thinking about making email lists in a free version for starters at least. And put together a ebook on the way as well.

Keep up the good and noble work you do!

Thanks for the follow Denis. Quite enjoyed reading your continuously updated bio. Just today I had mentioned to another member that if I think about it I've come a long way since I signed up less than 2 years ago. I really haven't accomplished much here on the WA platform but I have certainly been able to start putting all the pieces of affiliate marketing together in combination with other areas. The last couple of months have been really amazing where everything is starting to come together like a well oiled machine. Things will be looking really good by the end of the year!

Great to hook up with you and I wish you success!

Hi Denis,

Thank you for following me, and now me to you. Good to meet you.

Your progress is great to read of; you certainly seem to be building yourself a solid foundation of which you are seeing the results. They will compound - I love the science of 'compounding' - and before you know it, you'll be at this full time and in full swing.

Not that I want you to wish your life away, though I trust that the day you can give up 'the day job' arrives in good time for you.

I noticed that you’re following me. Thanks so much for that. I hope and pray for your success here at WA. I’m wondering if we could do each other a favor? Could we possibly exchange a comment on a recent post, on each other’s website? I know time is precious, so I certainly understand if the timing is not the best for you. Anyway, if you’re able, here’s the post I need a comment on: https://howtoloveelementary.com/why-do-i-feel-like-a-child/

Hi Denis,

Such a great story you have here in your profile. Persistence and determination will pay off.

I can't believe how many here in this community are willing to help and how well everything is set up to encourage people to work together towards each others goals.

It is great to see everyone having their own levels of success, which then encourages people such as myself who are new to community.

Thanks for Following me.

I look forward to seeing you as your success continues to grow.

Working at this part-time is a little frustrating at times because you don't get to where you want to be as quickly as someone who works at this full time, but we all have our own path to follow.

The main challenge is to remain committed, especially when time is a concern. But if you never quit, you will eventually get there, maybe a little slower than someone who works at their online business full time, but you WILL get there!!

Hello Mr. D Blanchard.
I had no ideal i was "suppose/could" build my website WHILE going through the LESSONS......feel stupid!!!! Anyway, I've gotten and placed my "DOMAIN" and my TITLE BUT when i CLICK on "build my website" the screen just flashes very quickly and nothing else happens. PLEASE HELP
THANKS IN ADVANCE

Please do not feel stupid, it's ok to make mistakes when you first start. 🙂

OK now you say that when you click build my website the screen flashes and nothing happens. Did you choose a "theme"? And if so it should bring you a pop up menu saying that your website is being built.

If the popup does not come up, there must be something not right. Can you give me the URL of your website I could check and see if its live or not.

First thanks so much for following me and I am now following you as well. Thank you for writing such an honest post and it is so true we do all have different paths. I too am working full time, but I'm crazy and as soon as I'm home from work - I get home at 11 pm (so I already ate dinner at work) and I stay up till about 5 am plugging away at this. I am writing two posts at the moment but haven't published them to my website because they need some more tweaking. Well again great bio and it's about that time I start tapering off (it's almost 5 am - where I live in the world)

Hi There…
Thanks so much for following me… I’m new to the internet marketing concept… and it sounds like a winner.
I am particularly interested in the “community concept” which allows us to interact with and teach each other.
Good vibes there.
I am recently retired from a 30 year career in the real estate industry and am seeking a new money making position in the 21st century.
I think this is probably what I’m looking for…
I spent my first 20 years growing up in Los Angeles… My next 20 years rearing my family in San Francisco…and my last 20 years
appraising property in Portland, Oregon. Yeah… I seem to keep moving north.
Any info that you can provide to a Newbie will be greatly appreciated.
Please stay in touch and be certain that I will value your opinion.
Luv Ya..Chris
Reply
DBlanchard Premium
Hi Chris,
I know all about the north, I live in Canada :)
It's April and there are still some spots with snow here.🙄

As far as giving you advice, well the first advice is to follow the training to the letter. Don't skip anything even if you think you know it, there will be some little pieces of the puzzle hidden in there somewhere I'm sure.

The second advice I have is don't be afraid to ask questions and to use the "question tab". This community is amazing and you will get answers from experienced members who's been there and done that before.

And my last advice is to follow as many members as you can. The more members you follow, the quicker you will get answers to your questions. It has worked for me very well. I follow almost 20000 members and approximately 5000 follow me back. The more the merrier.

And remember to have fun doing this!

Hi Derence,
The SAC(Super Affiliate Challenge) or SWAG(Super Wealthy Affiliate Group) - a name we invented in January 2018 is for people who want to promote Wealthy Affiliate as a niche, just like Bootcamp, only it is more intensive.

No Derrence as a premium member you can join the group anytime and start at lesson one. I suggest you take a look at both Bootcamp and SAC and decide which one you want to do. They both lead to the same purpose of promoting WA as a niche.

I have never finished Bootcamp and jumped in SAC In January 2018, so I cannot tell which one is better. I am sure they are both awesome being trainings on WA. 🙂

Thanks Denis! I never started Bootcamp as I still am trying to finish certification, working on lessons every day and have now jumped in to lesson 1 of SAC. I really appreciate your help.

Here is some info you may be interested in about multiple clips store and retrieve clipboards:

Thanks Paul! Phil (feigner at WA) referred me to another multiple clip board: http://m8software.com/clipboards/freeclip/freeclip.htm

which I was going to buy their (m8) regular version for $29.95 US dollar but Phil then said he used their free one (m8) but then changed and installed the free one at https://ditto-cp.sourceforge.io/

Hi Denis,
Thanks for reaching out to me I’m looking forward to working with you and all my newfound friends at WA. I was getting a little despondent after searching for a place that could teach me how to market online and I came across WA. I’m so happy that I attracted this avenue where everyone is so helpful and excited to help others achieve what we are all looking for. It’s a big world out there and there is more than enough for everyone to succeed, with the right guidance in the beginning. Unfortunately there are so many that just want to take and not offer anything in return. It takes patience and a belief that there is goodness and kindness out there to succeed, one needs to just scratch a little below the surface to find it.
Thanks again for making contact with me.

Hi Denis, Thank you for the info about SWAG. First time I have heard that term. Sounds like a goal I would like to attain.

I am looking forward to following you and learning any new info you have to share. Thanks for following me.

I have copied this from an earlier answer to somone asking the same question:
SWAG is an acronym that we members started to use back in January 2018 when Kyle decided to create a super intensive training called the "Super Affiliate Challenge - 12 month intensive training"

As a premium member, you can get access right here and you can start anytime:
It's a 12 months intensive training to become a "Super Affiliate" by having 300 sales (premium referrals) in one year (And meet Kyle, Carson and the rest of the gang in Vegas).

We as a group decided to call it the Super Wealthy Affiliate Group (SWAG)"

If you have any other questions please feel free to ask 🙂

Hi Dennis
I am so glad you found me so i could "meet" you and read your bio, which was very reassuring to me.

I am here now for a year, really believing it is the right place to be, but also hold back with a very time consuming work schedule....

When i read about people who are making progress but admit it takes time i feel motivated again to keep going...

Thank you again and have a great holiday season,

Hi Christine,

I will most probably update my profile sometime in February after one year since I started my new venture. Been here for almost 3 years now, but my first two years were more procrastinating than anything else. I have done 90% more work in the last year than in the previous 2 years, and I can see the difference in my PayPal account! 🙂

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.

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 🙂

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 🙂

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.

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.
Thanks

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!🙂

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!
Tom

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!

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!

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

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.

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!

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!

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 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,

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!

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.

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 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.

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.

Regards
Bev

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.
Bless You,

Hi Aundria, had a couple of issues that caused us to loose our focus and we know with out a doubt that we are in the right place at WA. Sometimes life interferes, Family Tragedies and Sicknesses can be major distractions.

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.
Cheers Jae

Hi Jae,
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!

Cheers!

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!

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.

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.

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!

ANYWAY…

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.
