About Des1963
Joined May 2017
I live in Texas and I'm currently seeking to get set up in my own business on line. I have seen all the so called "fake" promises out there but WA really intrigued me because it doesn't promise huge overnight profit and the only place I've seen that offers free training. I'm excited to be part of the community and meeting entrepreneurs. I've worked in customer service most of my life and due to the economy I need something I can depend on for retirement like having my own online business.

My website has actually been indexed by google and can be viewed here:

Review for credits and to get reviewed is an interesting concept. Do you have a template that can be used for this when reviewing a website? Can you tell I'm a newbie? LOL
Reply
JasonHeard Premium
No, each website is different. Newbie or not, I enjoy the SiteFeedback platform because it allows a fresh set of eyes (another member) to view your website and offer their perspective as a first time visitor.

SiteFeedback usually asks for feedback on their website.

When someone uses SiteComments, they are usually looking for comments related directly to that post or page.

Each website is different when reviewing, just leave your honest feedback.

Deborah, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Deborah.

Placing the WA banner on my page has got me frustrated. I've tried the search asking people and watching videos and I think maybe I should wait til Friday when I go premium--will that make it easier?? or am I just doing something wrong??? I know that because it's a free site I don't have all the bells and whistles yet, so is waiting better??

Kyle Premium
Where are you getting stuck? Are you adding the banner code? If so, you won't see the banner live on your website until you actually publish it and then visit the page live.
Reply
des1963 Premium
I'm adding the banner code but I'm not sure I'm doing it correctly. I'll try again after I finish writing out my last category page and I'm almost done. I'm really excited about going live under premium which I'll take care of this Friday. Thanks for all the help!!

Okay--now I feel stupid LOL! I had my ad blocker on once I disabled it from my site it was amazingly easy to post the banners. However one question I do have is should I post a banner on my home page?

Kyle Premium
lol, all good. Happens to the best of us and I am really glad you have gotten this sorted now.

If you get a chance can you take a look at my website and let me know what I'm doing right, what I'm doing wrong and other ways to improve it. Thanks ahead of time! I'm going premium tomorrow
woohoo!! my site is at www dot scamskilldreams dot siterubix dot com sorry I can't just post the link but tomorrow I can!!

Off to a good start here with your site Deborah!

Be thorough with your content. Quality content is content that is helpful and often times means it being thorough.

With each page or post you create on your website, people should come to it and feel as they have gotten the help/information that they were looking for and it was presented in a way that was interesting.

Ex. http://scamskilldreams.siterubix.com/wealthy-affiliate-review-dream-killer-or-dream-maker

You ideally want every page or post on your website to be 1,000+ (they will of course differ from post to post). This will lead to much better rankings in search engines, and rankings that "stick".

Also, one thing that I always recommend is to "show" people more within your content instead of just "telling" them. By this I mean that you should not just let them know about something, you should walk them through a process. Help them. Use screenshots or images to represent what you are talking about.

This will lead to a much more enjoyable user experience and will also lead to much higher conversions.

---

Off and running here though!

Thank you so much for the feedback--it's greatly appreciated! I've already made some changes per your advice and I'm still working on the imagery--that copyright thing is a pain! Also I went to Amazon and they have books for sale on the different types of scams out there and this is the type of thing I should include in my content as well--right?? I also noticed you must have a disclaimer when you are an affiliate for them--and by using the search I found access to templates for that as well. One question I do have about pictures is how to credit the author and where as some are free as long as you publish credit to the author. Also, I can publish my own pictures without worrying about who's toes I'm stepping on right?? Thanks so much for all the advice and now I'm going to go to work on my site and do some more tweaking!!! lol

There are many ways in which you can find and add images to your website. I have outlined this within a video walk-through that I created on images. This is very thorough and will give you a lot of great ideas as to how you can find and incorporate images on your website. Also, do know that if you are an affiliate of Amazon you can use any of the images (product) from their website on your website if you use their specific linking codes, which opens you up to an image bank of MILLIONS of images.

There are also other CC0 sites out there that you can leverage. These are free public domain images to use how you wish.

This should get you going!

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! :)

Just a short note to let you know I'm on phase 1 lesson 9 of bootcamp and loving every minute, When you get a chance could you give my website a looksee and tell me what you think?? I've got to type it out the long way since I'm a starter lol Many thanks in advance! www dot scamskilldreams dot siterubix dot com

You're off to a great start, I can tell you that!

I will also admit, I was surprised to see how much content you have added to your main pages in the menu. Plus, the content is relevant to the topic at hand, way to go.

I like the theme and choice of colors.

I have no problem giving constructive feedback when needed. But again, you're off to a great start here. I can't wait to see your progress as you make your way through the bootcamp.

des1963 Premium
Thanks so much for the feedback! My next step is to go through lesson 9 of phase 1 and add imagery to my pages as well. Also do you have to change font colors from the text on a page? I couldn't find anything under visual. Now for images--do you know of any good sites with free scam imagery that you don't have to post author credit for or should I make my own? I've looked online at several places but most of the ones that say free have a lot of exceptions--they sure like to make things difficult!!! LOL

My personal favorite sites for free to use images are pexels.com and pixabay.com. Try there!

As far as the font color, I am not sure I understand the question. The font color you are using now appears fine, however, consider making the font size a little bigger. Just a suggestion.
Reply
des1963 Premium
Thanks for the suggestion and that's my question how do I make changes in font and color of font on the website??
Reply
des1963 Premium
I figured out how to make the font bigger--but can you change colors of the font???
Reply
JasonHeard Premium
This should be somewhere within your theme settings. I would go to Appearence > Customize and look for any font related settings there.

des1963 Premium
Thanks I'll try that!!
