These are reasonable goals!

It doesn't happen overnight, so remember that your time commitment isn't a promise to us, it is a promise to yourself.

Find a time in your day to put it on your schedule, then schedule the rest of your life around that time just like you would if it were your job because one day, it just may be!

I wish you the very best in reaching your goals and even more!

You absolutely can and you will achieve these goals (and likely beyond) Ms! Dedicate yourself to your goals and take action on what you learn here. Action leads to success and I have never seen anyone fail that doesn't quit.

I look forward to working with you and do let me know if you need a hand along the way. :)

Hi Diane

I wondered if it was possible for you to take a look at my website About Me page and first post from Kyle’s class in Lesson 2 please? I think I’ve spent far too much time getting across what I hope inspires potential customers to join my experience, but I’m really pleased with them. I just don’t know if I’m on the right track. Many thanks.

Hello Diane ... thank you for the follow. How's it going with the SAC. Does Kyle do a good job of being the Bootcamp Drill Sargeant?

I imagine it gets pretty intense at times trying to maintain his monster schedule of assignments. Kind of like Bootcamp training on steroids.

I wish you the best on the SAC and your WA journey.

Diane, after reading your article about copying content, I have a question. When writing an article or post and I find a tutorial that Kyle has posted and want to use his explanation or remedy and I copy it, is that frowned upon and what you are talking about? Or am I reading something into it that is not there? I don't want to plagiarize any post but is it OK to use parts of that article?
Reply

Hi - you really shouldn't copy any content, even if it's only a couple of paragraphs. You can either summarize it in your own words, or add an external link to it.

Hey Diane,
It's Richard again. Sorry to be a pest, but you give me answers faster than anyone else. So, I hope you'll help me out again.
When I open my website the list of posts on the right side only shows 5 posts when I have 7. The two missing ones are attached to the bottom of two that are shown. How do I fix this please?
Also the title of my website does not show on the opening page. I've asked WordPress for help on this unless you know what I should do.
Finally, should my website open when I go online with https://alarmclocksforhardofhearing.com/ ? It doesn't.
Thank you very much for any help you can give me.
All the best,
Richard

Hi Diane, I'm back, I had to get something to eat. I want to thank you guys, I learned a very valuable lesson. I did copy some of my material, because I didn't want to lose the fact. But from now on I will put it all in my "own words", I promise! It'll save me a lot of time. headache and keep my integrity, I sent this message to Phil (feigner) as well. I did fix it, but not the way I wanted it. By the way, I copied it from old site I started here, but on a different theme, came out fine. So I might have copied from myself. I know what to do, I promise! Thanks

Hi Diane I feel like screeming!!! I am so frustrated! You have accomplished so much and I bow to you. Good on you.

I need your expertise to help me out of a bind. I am slowly setting up my website, but I can't manipulate it! The fonts are no where near the UK styles that I am familiar with. Choosing text with no examples next to them is annoying. Also do I publish my 'about me' page before I do my front page on my website? The copy or text is a bit in your face. I wish someone could view all this.
Reply
DianeScorpio Premium
Hi - you can add a plugin called Google Fonts which may help.

When you are talking about doing your "front page" - are you planning on having what is called a static page? That is where the page constantly remains the same. The usual style is to have a "blog roll". This is where, as you publish each new post, it adds it to the home page, so people can see the 5 latest posts and click straight on them.

You can do your "about me" page whenever you want.

Do you want me to take a look? You can send me the link to your website by private message, or add it here.

Good Morning, I too am based in London England and its sweltering hot here at the minute. Nice to see there are a few of us from the UK. Hi Guys.
Diane being a newbie I am struggling to decide what Niche to choose. I have loads of ideas, but when I told my mentor he said to focus on what can ultimately make you decent money. Like courses, subscriptions, repeat buying or high ticket sale.
So because I live in London most of my ideas would apply to our location. I had a vision of a website like a Wedding planner, but all venues, photographers etc are based in London. So that's a bummer. I can't see it working. Although can I still do a UK website? So do I have to think of the bigger picture and address people internationally?
. Initially I chose MOVIES, Netflix etc. as I'm a film freak, obsessed with the Walking dead lol. I also like personalised goods, or Health and fitness for lets say over 50's Alkaline foods, superfoods, water, Coffee, Tea.... or personal development, Meditation, training, etc I'm very into alternatives. I also work with children in early years, doing fun stuff, face painting, Art projects. Toys come in mind, drones, etc. or there's education side.

So there you have it I'm stuck can you give me some tips please. Or help me decide on the right category or area, would be open to your thoughts, and anyone else who can see a pathway for me to pursue. Sorry about the length of this message.

Hi - I am in Nottingham and its incredibly hot here!

First of all, remember the internet is a global marketplace, and your website will be seen worldwide, so don't narrow it to being UK focused. And in particular, when you come to buy a domain, pick a .com, which is internationally recognised, not a .co.uk.

You certainly have plenty of interests to choose from. Your mentor is Jack? He is very experienced in the money-making online niche, which is generally the area where you can promote courses and digital products. However, it's very competitive and is one of the top 3 niches, the other two being health and romance/sex/love.

As much as I too love Netflix, it's not going to make much money promoting movies. Personalised goods could be an idea, but not sure if there is enough to create articles around it.

Health topics are of course very popular, and easy to write about. One thing to be aware of is the Google Medic Update, which happened last year. This was an attempt by Google to cut down on the number of health sites which were just churning out poorly researched articles, simply to try and attract traffic, knowing that people search for health topics.

https://fatfrogmedia.com/health-niche-google-penalty/

This led to a drop in visitors to many sites, hence another reason as to why people suggest avoiding this niche.

Drones would require in-depth knowledge, as potential customers are usually very experienced, and may ask complex questions.

All of your other suggestions are great - personal development, art, toys, education etc. It really comes down to which subject you would enjoy writing about. Remember, your website will require constant content, ideally 2 or 3 articles every week. Which of your subjects could you instantly come up with topics for your first 12 articles to write about?

These are all just my opinions of course, and I am sure you will get lots of different answers. Start off by using one of the free websites you are given. That way if you change your mind, you can easily start again, rather than buying a niche-specific domain to work on, because you can't actually change a domain name once you have purchased it.

I hope this has helped. Happy to answer any other questions.

Thank you for all that information for me to check out. I understand a bit more what I have to do. I wasn't aware that you have to write articles regularly on your site. I suppose I should invest in an area that I am familiar with and have knowledge in.
Which brings it down to education and kids world. I will continue with my training keeping this in mind, but I won't pick a Niche till I am 100% sure. Appreciate feed back.

Hi Diane,
Do you have a moment to write on this below?
Dear Wonderful Community:
Are Kyle's guidelines in the Lesson 9 all I need to concern myself with: AVG of 30 +
Traffic of 40+
QSR of less than 100.
AND I most likely will not have to wait "YEARS" to see any results in income if I follow the above guidelines AND do all of the lessons correctly in WA as given???
The reason I ask is that I may have come across some sales pitch/ false data on a You Tube video entitled, " How to Qualify Keywords on Jaaxy". This video made me very very discouraged and I just want to get some reassurance from the community at WA here that there really are some keywords left in all niches that can bring in traffic .... within 6 mos to a year.
We are wobbly enough as newbies and any video that contradicts the lessons here at WA can really make us feel panicky!
I have heard many of times, experienced coaches in the community of WA say to "just follow the training here at WA" and "you'll do fine". But, keywords are pivotal to everything in blog writing; at the risk of sounding obtuse, I ask again for some feedback, assurances especially about lesson 9. Is it up to date? are Kyle's figures working out for you all this year, not 5 years after you posted before seeing results/traffic??
Respectfully,
Brenda

DianeScorpio Premium
Hi Brenda - sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

The training here has been proven to be successful time and time again, and I have added a link to some genuine success stories for you to read. As regards keywords, traffic above 30, and QSR below 100 gives you the best results.

However, there are other things which Google looks for. One example is the age of your website. It views any sites less than six months old with suspicion, so don't expect much to happen before then.

Google prefers long posts, as it shows you are an authority on your subject. The suggested minimum is 1000 words, but you may be interested to learn the average post on the first page of Google is 1900 words.

Adding posts on a regular basis is also a key element, preferably 2 or 3 times per week, if you can.

Personally speaking, I have 4 websites, which is not recommended by the way, as it is challenging and time-consuming to keep adding content. I have made some income from my oldest site, which I built 6 months ago, and my traffic is definitely increasing.

I wish you every success.

Dianne,
You are so reassuring! Kyle sent me a case study of Organic milk using those numbers above: QSR less than 100 and he never tested the QSR by plugging it into google like the misleading salesman did on You tube! That dude sent me into a
funk! From there on out I am sure I appeared to be a "cry baby" to the community. So, thank you for setting me straight again.!! And please send those success stories you were going to attach to your last note to me. (Stories did not get attached).
I love my niche and I decided kinda that whether or not I make money in a year or two that time is not wasted because I want to research my niche and use it in my life (gardening). And I want to learn the training that Kyle has for us just to be up to speed with all the tools on the internet and youtube, facebook.
The course is an investment in me.
Well, Rock On, Woman! Thankx for your gift today, pls send the success stories!

Hi Brenda - I am not sure where you are going with this website now. The name of it and your "about me" page all lead a reader to believe that it is about greeting cards and your unique designs. That is what people would expect to see.

However, you now have 3 articles, and none of them is about greeting cards. Two of them are in the self-improvement niche and one is a travel guide, with two paragraphs copied and pasted.

Who is your audience? Who are you trying to appeal to? How do you plan on monetizing your site?
Reply
bellison0828 Premium
My niche is about beauty. I have a greeting card company and I want to market my cards as Beautiful, Elegant and Unique card designs.

There is only going to be so much that I will have to say about greeting cards. It may sound weird, but I just really love making the cards, not talking about them.

I will try to write an article about greeting cards. Boring.....LOL

My audience is people who enjoy beauty as I do.

I am going to put my greeting cards on the website. But I have not gotten that far in my training yet.

Hi Diane,

Since you are involved in the world of Rock Music, I want to know if you are familiar with a rock guitarist called Vinny Burns. He started his performing career with a band called Dare. That led to being a member in a band called 10. Dare has since got back together and they give tours all over Europe.

I'd be very interested in knowing what you think of this group and especially Vinny. I have known him since he was like 8 ha! He is now in his 40's. He has always lived in England and currently has a home in Ashby De La Zouch. I live in the LA area now.

This has nothing to do with Affiliate Marketing, but I thought I'd throw that in.

Diane, it's a small world indeed! Dare were indeed melodic.Glad you're going to check out there music.

I attended one of their first concerts in Oldham. When they visited LA to work on their EP Vinny stayed with us for a weekend. Hard to see how time has flown by.

There are a few young rockers who are following in the footsteps of the greats.

I'll be writing a Blog about the groups who I saw perform. I'll keep you posted.

Is it possible and if yes, please tell me how.

Hi Koen - nice to meet you. No, what you are asking doesn't happen. If you write directly into Wordpress, it doesn't transfer across to Site Content.

If you wish to add it manually to Site Content, simply for the purposes of keeping track of word count or articles published, then you can copy and paste your post. Make sure you don't hit "publish" though, or it will duplicate the article on your website.

thank you, Diana, for this clear answer. That is what I needed.
Dianne, Do you write on site content or straight in Wordpress?
What would you advise as a professional?

Reply
DianeScorpio Premium
I use Site Content, as I like to set writing goals and keep track of my word count.

It is useful for less confident writers, as it offers the opportunity to check spelling, grammar and sentence structure, plus it checks for duplicate content.

Other than that, its personal preference, whichever you feel most comfortable with.

I am two months new and seem to read much-needed explanations from you to others, I can't find it now, but you offer help about how to edit a post once it is published. I have done many edits (all differently, I sure). As you instructed, after going to WordPress, edit, update when finished, do you need to re-publish?
In trying to keep up with training and do things as I go along, I find I do follow the training, and in continuing training with details I learn/why not to do things. Is it not a good thing to make edits after publishing?
Reply
DianeScorpio Premium
Hi - by editing in Wordpress and clicking update, your changes are automatically published on your website, you don't need to do anything else.

Editing is fine, and something we all need to do from time to time. The only thing you shouldn't change really is the title of the article.
Reply

@DianeScorpio,

Once a post that has been created in Site Content, is published and then heavily edited in WP, do we care that all of the edits will not be reflected in the original post within Site Content?

Do we even need to keep the original posts inside of Site Content?

Hi - personal choice really. Some people like the stats aspect of Site Content, keeping track of word count or number of articles published. You dont have to use it all if you don't want to.

Hi Diane,

A few days back I had asked you about how to get my name as the author at the top of my posts. You pointed me in the right direction, saying that if I learned something to let you know. So, here I'm writing back.

I resolved the issue of putting my name at the top of each post. It was related to my theme. I had chosen Themefreesia - Wedding Photos. Then I had purchased the Photograph Plus plugin and installed it and had it activated, (purchased from Themefreesia) to increase the functionality of the theme. This allowed me to change fonts and change colors, which I learned how to do, and improved the appearance of my site.

In the course of learning how to customize. I discovered how to get my name at the top of each post: I went to appearances and then customize. I clicked Theme options, then Layout options. There was a list there of options that were check-marked. I merely unchecked the one that said "disable author."

Then, I exited everything and went back to my sight, and surprise: my name now appears at the top of each of my posts. Wow, what a long journey. I learned a lot. I really can hardly believe how much I'm learning. After the customizing, now, I am finally satisfied with how my site looks. This showed me that I had correctly changed the user name and changed the author name to myself on each post. It was the theme setting that had blocked the appearance of my name as the author.

Just wanted to share what I discovered, and say thanks for indicating the right direction to go.

And, by the way, if you find the time, something that is precious to all of us, I'd sure love to benefit from your impressions of my website. It's howtoloveelementary.com. It's in the kindergarten stage, with only three posts, all very original. I'm setting the goal of 12 posts before I start the monetizing process.

Thanks

Hi - I am glad you finally resolved the problem. Your site looks good. At some point, you will need to add categories and a menu so that visitors can easily find what they are looking for. I am not religious, so I can't comment on the content, but it is well-written and definitely original.

Hi Diane,
I'm sending this note specifically to you, because your comments on the public forum have been helpful to me. You seem knowledgeable, so I'm cutting and pasting the following to you:
I finished the lesson entitled: "Making Face as a Real Person." I created a new user name, and updated my posts with this new user name, as the author. Yet, after leaving the site, refreshing, and returning to my website and posts, there is no indication of who wrote the post, no author name appears. It was suggested that I "update" at the bottom after all is changed. I did, no results. And it was suggested that I may need to update theme under appearances. This seems non-applicable to my issue here. But I don't know. Can anyone help me get my new user name on the website posts?
Thanks,
Andy

Any advice you might offer would be helpful.
Reply
DianeScorpio Premium
Hi Andrew - I have three websites, and one of mine is exactly the same. It doesn't even show that the posts have been written by "admin" - there is no author at all. I presume it relates to the theme.

I don't wish to change my theme, and as yet, have not found a way to solve the problem. I suspect it requires upgrading to the pro version of the theme. If somebody gives you the solution, I would be interested to learn it too!

Nice to meet you Diane. The FB link in your bio is not clickable. There is a place for links of all kinds, all the way down below where your picture is. They will be clickable there.
Much success to you here at WA.

Congratulations on your selection for SAC 2020. I will see you there.

Hi Diane, I am a bit concerned about the legitimacy of WA. I have been asking answers for the last couple of days, but nothing??

Hi Carsen, please answer my concerns listed below copied from your wall.

Hi Kyle, I was excited until I started reading the following on Carson's wall, without any response??

1. Hi Carson, I cancelled my membership today, but was also charged $49 today. I have already transferred my websites to another host and will not be using any WA Premium services for the next 30days. Can I please have the refunded? Thank you.
PS I messaged Kyle and he ignored my question completely and gave a generic message to ask me to keep my account. Please assist me truthfully and let's part in good terms
2. Hello Carson,
Why did you choose to ignore your members post without any reasonable response. If you continue this way, you will just discover WA will be a thing of the past because most premium members will surely quit.
So many premium members were logged out automatically without having access to log in and you couldn't find any solution to this effect, even with new members that just upgraded. The domain I brought to WA which i have full copyright ownership on was also disabled. Tons of messages has been sent but you choose to ignore.
Please kindly find solution to this before it gets out of hand.
3. Dear kyle, why all of a sudden am I asked to login but when I put my Login details I still cannot I open my account?
I joined wealthyaffiliate yesterday, paid for premium, contact you several times no response.
4. I created this account temporary because my account which I opened today, paid for premium today was locked out telling "We were unable to find a user account with the credentials provided" after have paid $19, even am already posting comments on people's blog before the issue came up. please is this how wealthyaffiliate treat their users here and is there a solution?details to my locked account is

There are more and surely you will not expect anyone to join WA with these problems and no response?

Hi Diane, I see you are ranked #39 and therefore should be in the know. I have read some very disconcerting posts on Carson & Kyle's wall from members, which have been ignored for more than 3 days. I have also sent them numerous messages in the last couple of days but nothing?
I think this is a great concept and would love to join but am becoming apprehensive as everything is just about upgrading to Premier, which I will do if this is all legit.
Hope to hear from you.
Andre.

Hi Diane. I am trying to build it but having a hard time figuring out where to go. Went to build a website and site content but can't seem to get to a website. Do I have to purchase something first? My domain name is registered. I did that. Got that paid for but now with WA to build website, do I have to buy something first?
Thanks for your help in advance.

Hi - did you buy your domain through WA? It can't be hosted here until you are a premium member. As a starter member, you can only use the two free websites you are given.

To build your free website, go to Site Builder, then click on "a free domain" and follow the instructions.

You can work on your free website, and then if you decide to go premium, you can easily just transfer everything you have done over to your purchased domain.

Try not to get ahead of yourself, or you may miss out an important step or get confused and overwhelmed.

But where are the free websites? Yes, I registered/purchased my domain name through WA. I went to Site Builder. I will see if there is a "free domain" listed. I was there but no real instructions yet. I added some content but nothing looks like a website. I will try again. Thanks

DianeScorpio Premium
You have to build the websites yourself. Go to site builder, click on the free domain option, then it will ask you to name your site and choose a theme.

Thanks Diane. Yeah I know I have to build myself. Been working on it. I have been adding content, etc. all along. Just wanted to see what it actually looked like but not at that point I guess. I chose a name and registered it in the very beginning. I paid for it, etc. However, I don't think I seen a theme yet but I will check. I've been adding my writing content and so far have already done what you suggested but I do appreciate you getting back to me. Thank-you. I really believe you want to help so I may be back. Thanks again. And I love the UK. Yes, yes I do!!!

I know you have lots of people ask you for help. I guess I am now among them.

I am trying to do a product review and I am wondering would it be okay to put a screenshot of the Amazon page the product is on just to let them see where it ranks and the price and so on?

I am an Amazon affiliate and may be able to grab a link with the picture of the product, I think they always give me that option as well but I didn't know if it gave the star rating with that. I hope I am making sense in my request...LOL
Blessings,
Lynda

Hi Lynda - no, is the short answer! Amazon is very strict and protective of their website. The only product image you are allowed to use is the single 1 which they supply as a link for affiliates to use. You can't screenshot anything.

The "text + image" link which you can use will show the price and it updates automatically if the price changes. You can't actually mention the price in your review.

You are not allowed to use their star ratings, product description and other images of the product.

And considering you have to make 3 sales in 180 days, they don't make it easy, do they?

And make sure your Affiliate Disclosure is visible on every page.

I have it at the top menu. do I need to say something on the post to where do I get that or is it something I just say?? I have seen what appears to be a generalized paragraph on peoples websites but mine was a whole page of legal stuff. I just mean am I suppose to put it into my own words or what on each page. Thanks
Blessings,
Lynda

The general disclosure is fine in your top menu, you don't need to put it in your own words. Just to be absolutely certain, I add this to the end of every product review

"Amazon Affiliate Disclosure: As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases."

Okay, thanks. This is the first product review so just want it to be right. I appreciate all the help!!

Hi Diane,
Could you spare the time to advise me, as that 76 years young retired teacher, who is trying to study, through WA training and communicating with the WA family around the world?
I am juggling with all sorts of ideas to supplement, my wife, Susan and myself pensions.
I feel like using my teaching expertise and my love of research in a blog, website etc, ecom perhaps, but which "niche", but unless I make a decision soon, I might be wasting valuable time in my life.
I want to help student, parents and the wider population.
As a web writer and proof reader, where do you feel I should concentrate. If I concentrated on answering Educational Queries, could that idea lead to an ability to monetize to supplement our household income here in Leeds, UK?
Enough of my ramble.
Thank you for your valuable time.
Best Wishes,
Leslie

Leslie, I am in a similar position at 65. I also am enamored with research, and I have been trying to figure out how to create a business with it. Short of becoming a member of places like or similar to 'Fiverr'. Don't get me wrong, Fiverr is a wonderful place with exceptional members.

Also, I think that there is a need for services online for seniours who want to go into business online, but do not know where to begin. And if they have had a similar experience like me the younger generation tends to lack the skill of 'patience' and, in my experience, they will simply dismiss me.

I frequently remind myself that the gentleman who started the Kentucky Fried Chicken franchize did so in his 60 s.

Hi Diane, nice to hear from you. I look forward to getting to know you my new WA friend. S

I see you have a website up and running. You might want to think about putting the links here on your profile page.

You do this by going to the right of your profile page, down to the bottom where it says 'Follow me on' and click on it. Put your website URL and any social media URLs you have (and want to add). This way people like me can hop in, visit and leave a comment. This makes it easier for us to follow you as this will be a direct link. And extra traffic is always welcome.

You should also do some more blogs here on your profile page. These go into Google too so add to your online profile. Also if you are promoting WA these WA blogs help build trust with your referrals. They can see you are really involved here.

If you have time I would love it if you visited one of my websites and left a comment on a post, any one will do. The site addresses are on my profile page.

As soon as you have a website link here let me know so I can return the comment.

Keep working hard, having fun and don’t forget to ask questions.

A very nice boss once told me, ‘Helen, when you ask a silly question everyone else breathes a collective sigh of relief because they don’t have to!’ And that is so true. No question is silly so ask away.

If I can’t help I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Now let us keep in touch.

Ciao
Helen

Diane, I have a question.

I joined this community primarily for two reasons:

1.) To be part of the online community that brings you close to people from all works of life, and
2.) To make money, and possibly, quit my traditional job and be my own boss.

This is my mission. I know I've to invest time, resources and a whole lot of other things to break through. I believe I can do so without going overboard, though.

$49 converts into over #18,000. That much I have to pay after my first month, right?

Please, I don't want to waste my time and money on something I'll later regret. I have to be very sure of what I'm getting into. Is it possible to invest 3 hours daily to this project, following the direction given by this adorable support team and make over $3,000 monthly after the first month?

Kindly give me an honest answer.
Reply
DianeScorpio Premium
Hi - unfortunately, no, I don't believe that is possible. It generally takes at least 3 months, and more realistically 6 months before you can expect to see any income, and certainly not $3000.

There are 50 lessons to complete, plus many tasks you are required to do to build out your website, plus you will be expected to write dozens of articles to attract visitors to your site.

This all takes a lot of time and patience. I wish you every success, but I am afraid your expectations are unrealistic.

You're really helpful. Thanks, once again for your honest answer. I won't let disappointment overtake me.

I'll be realistic in my expectation.

Diane: I have seen some of your replies to folks. You are 110% genuine with people. I appreciate your honesty.

If you get, say 5 minutes, can you give me some feedback on the progress on my website? I don't think I need a full microscope breakdown. A Reader Digest version would be great.

I do know my posts need to be longer. I'm working on that.

If not, I totally understand.

Thank You.

Hi Ken - nice to meet you. I do occasionally ruffle a few feathers with my feedback, but I believe it's better to resolve any problems sooner rather than later, and then wonder why you are not getting any visitors.

Your site has a nice clean layout, and at the moment is easy to navigate, but you could do with a menu. Unless you scroll all the way down to the bottom of the first page, you wouldn't know there were other posts to read.

Your "about me" page talks about yourself in the third person. I find it builds more trust to say "I" have done this etc.

Your articles are nicely written, well-spaced and have appropriate images. You certainly come across as an authority on your subject.

No problems at this early stage you will be pleased to hear!

Awesome. Thank You so much for your time.

Please feel free to "ruffle" my feathers. I grow-up in a home that was honest and to the point. Criticism is good for all of us. It makes us stronger in the end.

I learned if you can not take a little honest criticism, TOO BAD.

Again, Thank You for your time. Much Appreciated.

Dear Diane,

Thank you so much for following my account, especially since I am very new. I love how absolutely welcoming this community is, and look forward to helping others, and being informed along the way. You are in the top 200(119) to be exact, and I really think that with my technological expertise, that somewhere in the not so distant future, that I will be both financially secure, as well as an aid to others, newly joining.

I look forward to working with you in the future, and maybe one day being able to help out as much as I can!

Hello Dianne And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined and with your other online experience you may have come to the conclusion that internet marketing is a steep learning curve and there is always something new to learn.

You must keep referring to the training (it does get updated from time to time).

If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 470 blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me a message anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.
Robert

Hi, Diane.

Thanks for following me and joining my network. I've returned the compliment and followed you back.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. WA is a great community. There is so much to learn. I am here most days. I learn something every day.

I've been a Premium member of Wealthy Affiliate over 18 months now, and I don't regret one day!

Freelance SEO Content Writing is one of my goals. I enjoy writing, and with retirement looming, I need something else to see me through retirement. I'm still looking at how to get started.

Keep moving ahead. However your day may be, take a little step forward. Some days you'll make significant strikes, other days you will not, but do something every day, however small in building your business.

You will read many stories of WA members succeeding with their online goals. Some have achieved this in a few months, for others, it has taken a couple of years. The common trait for those that have reached their goals is taking action. Everyone who has succeeded has taken small steps every day. Do something, however tiny, every day, and you will reach your goal.

Pace yourself and enjoy your journey.

Best wishes,
Paul.
Be Happy!

Thanks, Paul - I have been here just over five weeks now, and am enjoying every step of the process, and proud of what I have achieved so far.

I am actually a freelance content writer and have written for LastMinute.com, Sixt Car Rental, GlobeAir, AmbienteDirect and many more. It's very interesting; I love the research aspect and learn something new every day. Joining an agency is probably the best way to start, although the pay is appalling until you prove yourself, move up through the ranks and acquire private clients.

All the best for 2019, Diane
