About DeeDee289
Joined September 2017
Social Media Manager & Virtual Assistant. Consider me your go-to VA for Creative Entrepreneurs. I love helping innovative bloggers and social media devotees gain more control in their business. I’m always looking to create something new and exciting for my clients.

More about me :) I'm a born and bred Aussie, living on the sunny Gold Coast. After spending many years overseas, I realised how important my independence was and started looking for ways in which to work my passions into an online business.

Years of research, study, multiple courses later (I'm a learning sponge) I fell into working as a Virtual Assistant. This has morphed into Social Media Management which I absolutely love. (I'm online 95% of the day, so why not, right?).

Well, maybe I exaggerated a little but I do spend every waking moment online (except when I'm at work, but then I have my phone and wifi). Best of luck to you too :)

Hi! Dee,
Welcome to WA; congratulate for hitting the right place to pursue e-marketing success.
WA has provided the best training program at low cost and its members exude the best possible support in the world at least in my past 4-year experience.

I am an almost 1-month old WA baby, but what I learned from Certification Course has been top-notch and that the supporting hands from Carson, Kyle, Ambassadors, and others are everywhere.

So, welcome. You may check on me in . I am ready to support each other with you.

Hello Dee (or is it DeeDee?),
I had the great good fortune to visit Brisbane a few years ago to stay with friends and loved the place! Only there for a short time but have life-long memories. I always wonder why people would ever want to leave unless it is to really appreciate what they have. I wish you every success in your journey. Now following.

Thank you Dee for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. As a Premium Member you are probably aware of the AWESOME and FREE WA Keyword Tool we have unlimited access to.

This is the keyword research tool I have used exclusively after I became a Premium member 4 years ago and it has helped me many times to find awesome keywords that have led to Google page 1 rankings.

When you have the time, I created very popular WA Training Tutorials, Part 1 and Part 2, on how to use the WA Keyword Tool for keyword research. If you have not seen it and would like to learn how simple it is to use and a little about keywords, click the below link. Again, when you have the time.

Aloha Dee! Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! :)
Your bio stood out to me because my husband and I have been working with different people this year to help us manage our own social media. What's your favorite platform and what do you love about it? I'm sure we can all learn a lot from you here in WA.

Hi :) I love Pinterest and Instagram the best! Pinterest is probably no.1, not really a social media platform as such but a great way to get your content noticed and out there (Pinterest is more a search engine like Google but with pretty graphics).

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

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also 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 just wrote my 100th training for WA. I have categorized them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hello Dee and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined and with your experience you will perhaps know that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 370 blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Enjoy your day.

No probs, as I said you get stuck, you get in touch just remember the time difference between us (about 12 hours).
What sort of work do you do as a VA?
You could get a lot of work through WA but remember self promotion is a big NO NO but I'm sure you can direct people to your site anyway and what they do after that is none of WA's business.
Enjoy your day/evening.

Thanks :) My main focus is Social Media Management, specifically Pinterest and Instagram. I've created one Instagram course and am in the process of creating a Pinterest one.
Reply
Robert-A Premium
Hi again Dee, you are sure to get lots of questions asked of you about Pinterest as a lot of members create accounts there and post regularly.
I actually send a Pinterst video course to members who ask me for it.
Its not my own but I'm allowed to use it.
I don't do Instagram, mainly because I don't understand it but I'm sure there would be a lot of interest from the members in your course once they know about it.
So get yourself noticed on WA.
Blog to your hearts content like I do (about 2/3 times a week).
Have a great Friday.
Robert

Awesome, I'm in the middle of creating a Pinterest Course. I've also just launched an Instagram course (still in Beta stage though). So how would you suggest I get more noticed for Pinterest and Insta? Blogging?

Since I have my own websites (not hosted here through Rubix though). Should I just link my blogs here?

Thanks :)

Yay another Goldy local. I'm based in South Tweed when I'm home but 'home' these days is actually the far south of Japan, where I've just bought my first house. The online world means location isn't really important - Instagram is paying for my mortgage! Where in the Goldy are you?
Reply
DeeDee289 Premium
Hi Iain, I'm in Broadbeach, moved here 2 years ago from Melbourne and we are absolutely loving it here :) Even though I am Victorian born and bred, I simply could NOT deal with another Melbourne winter! (plus my years of living os following the summer months spoilt me).

Do you get back to the Goldy much?
Reply
IainStanley Premium
Yeah we were just back for 3 weeks from late July-mid August. Try to get back 1-2 times a year but might be a bit harder now with the family getting bigger! My mum has plans to come over to Japan next March for cherry blossom srason so 2018 might be the first time in about 15 years I haven't spent any time in Oz. Have lived O/S 19 years now but still absolutely love going back to Tweed. From Cronulla, in Sydney, originally though

I've never been to Japan, I must go some time, especially to see the cherry blossom season. I look forward to seeing those pics on your Instagram :)

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)
Reply
DeeDee289 Premium
Oh yes, my niche... I started out online as a blogger (health and wellness) and progressed to become a VA. I am now a Social Media Manager (specifically Pinterest and Instagram). My focus has been helping newbie bloggers and solopreneurs (taking away their stress and overwhelm so that they can focus on the important stuff in their biz), but I'm not sure how to niche that down more.
