About DerekL
Joined March 2019
Hi fellow members please allow me to introduce myself.
I am a recently retired 65 yr old guy currently living in NW England.
I have extensive experience in Advertising,Sales ,Training both field and office based up to National Management level but alas my online skills are sadly lacking hence joining this platform.
I am not technically inclined, my abilities are mainly coming up with original ideas and concepts then planning and implementing them by means of training and motivating people to exceed given targets.
My objective is to help people who have physical , mental , emotional, or indeed spiritual problems as I am also well versed in alternative therapy modalities including the latest technology.
I am more than willing to share my ideas with like minded people in this community and would be extremely grateful to receive assistance from like minded individuals.
I look forward to communicating with members in forum or private message
Thanks
Derek




UPDATE
Having spent a few days looking at the technical side of the training here I feel that I may have made the wrong decision.
To be totally honest I'm far better teaming up with someone who has those skills which would allow me to concentrate on targeting markets advertising to specif audiences and most importantly getting sales.
I have over 30 yrs offline experience which has produced millions of pounds turner over for all size of business from sole traders to multi nationals .
I know that sales is purely a numbers game that you sell benefits to customers not features etc etc.
I am the first to admit that my knowledge of online marketing skills is weak at this moment in time but I am studying and learning the latest techniques and tools available as thoroughly as I can but I believe the principals of doing good business are the same today as they have always been.
I have some very exciting inspiring potential projects in mind so if what I have written stirs your soul please don't hesitate to message me
Thanks for taking the time to read this

Hi Derek,
I just read your update above and I don't think you made the wrong decision coming here to WA. Sure, it can seem a little over whelming to someone lacking the knowledge of online marketing.

But I assure you, WA is made for your long term success, it's not an over night process and it becomes easier and clearer as the lessons are completed.

Plus you have the community here that will help you. People come here to learn the process of affiliate marketing.
Reach out and ask help along the way, it's your journey.

All The Best
John

When you say the technical side of things, do you mean the WordPress themes and stuff? You can find experts on Fiverr who can handle issues and there are a lot of people here you can ask for advice. The video training is also very step-by-step. If you keep it open in a different window or a different device, you can pause it as you work right along with it.

Hello and welcome to Premium. This website is full of wonderful helpers and I have learned to always use the search tab at the top of the desktop, the answer is usually in someone's free training. Type in topic, rather than long question.
There is an answer to just about every question, all you need to do is ask.
Aside from the Certification and Bootcamp courses, there is heaps of extra training. Check out the training classrooms as well as the live events. There are current as well as past events in here. You can find both these tabs on the left-hand side
Start playing with tabs and boxes on your dashboard, there is so much hidden information, just keep looking for it.
Enjoy Wealthy Affiliate. There are lots of people here only too happy to help you along the way with encouragement and helpful tips. Wealthy Affiliate is about training, but that is just a small part of this wonderful community. If you participate as well as train, you will gain so much more.
cheers

Hi and congratulations on going premium with WA. It's a wise decision.

Your best bet from here is to follow all of the 5 course, 50 lesson Online Entrepreneur Certification training.

But the really important step is to apply what you're learning WHILE YOU'RE LEARNING IT.

I can't emphasize this enough.

Not only will it make the training stick, but in no time at all you'll have your first WA website up and running.

Google ranking and monetization will follow inevitably.

If you're stuck any time, just post a question.

One of us at WA will answer it and you'll be off again.

It's a journey and you've just taken your first and best step.

I wish you all the best.

Phil
