About Dougoverly
Joined September 2016
I'm Doug! I've been in the sales industry for a long while now, Ironically, selling products to people on how to better their financial situation.. But at the end of the month/week/year WHATEVER, I was basically back at the same spot in my own financial situation. A revolving door. So people were learning to build their own businesses and become financially free with the product I was selling them (real estate investing education) while I was always hanging out on first base.

Some crazy turns in life have stripped me down to "bare-bones" financially, employment, and humility.. I couldnt be happier! I am in a very unique "clean-slate" frame of mind, money, attitude and so on... I have a few bucks, a lot of time, and utmost dedication to creating the scenario that I painted and sold to other people for years in my previous career.

I have loved to Globetrot and I have loved-ones and interests all over the world. For a decade I've thought: "I will have finally arrived when I can make the same six figures sipping a beer in a pub in Nuuk, Greenland, or in my own beach pub on Tonsai, Thailand." This is real, I can taste it.

Affiliate marketing. I know this will not be an overnight slam-dunk. Good. Im not looking for one. I'm ready to put in the hard work and start with scraps, and with some luck and sweat, see scraps turn to steak turn into the whole cow as weeks, months, and years go by.

Hi and welcome to WA, Thanks for following me back.
dougoverly Premium
Would any of the "more seasoned" affiliates on here care to give a nugget or two of advice to me? Preferably if you have been making $2-5k+/Mo.
I am putting in as much time as possible into launching this business, but as with everyone here, time is limited. Could anyone share with me as to where my time is going to be best spent in terms of seeing results? Or perhaps share with me what is working best for them (without giving away your golden gems of course) I realize this Biz isnt a Quick-fix and am more than willing to put in my due work, I am just trying to optimize the limited time I have...
Would anyone be willing to share a BASIC timeline of what it took getting where you are??

Thanks a million, and hope to be of help to you someday!

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! :)

Hey Steve, I'm right at very exciting/confusing/intimidating part of the process... I've got my free website set-up called "sleepers welcome". I'm (possibly)focusing on the products, methods, and ideas floating around out there to help people get better sleep.
I snore like crazy is what gave me this Idea....but I dont love it, and I think its because I still have no Idea about creating content.. Product reviews, Methods for better zzz, ???
2 others on my mind: (tell me what you think)
-Backpacking in Thailand/S.E. Asia

Is it best to start with a Niche I love, or a Niche that I know that is popular???
Next, is it best to link products that are directly relative to the Niche or does it not matter if your content has the audience attention??
Sorry for the 20 Q's but I'm sure you know the exact phase a person (me) is in by sending you this message..

Any feedback is much appreciated!
Thanks a Bunch

Your first niche is never going to be your last niche. I would recommend starting in one you're passionate about and you can use that as a learning experience on how to get things setup and moving. From there, you can take what you've learned and apply that to other niches that you find that may be profitable. You'll want to keep your products 100% relevant. It doesn't matter how attentive your audience is, they aren't going to make purchases that are irrelevant to what your site is about.

Hey Doug! Just wanted to follow up and see how you're doing so far. Hope you've been enjoying the training offered here and the community as well.

I wanted to share with you a training I wrote here at Wealthy Affiliate. It's called "9 Tips for Internet Marketing Beginners" and it walks you through some of the things I've learned since joining Wealthy Affiliate over 5 years ago. Check it out below and leave a comment to let me know what you think!

Hey steve,
I appreciate all of your dedication not only to me and others getting started in this biz, but your dedication to the biz itself. Being connected with guys (and ladies) that have gone through all the trenches that I'm climbing through right now, is huge to me. I sold financial education for about 13 years (stock trading, R/E investing) and KNOW the value of experienced mentorship. I'm committed to making this happen. I've got some know-how, plenty of time, and heart/dedication to make this work. After typing that last line (just now) I realize I also need to upgrade. So that is what I will do right when Im done typing you.

This last week i've been plugging along with the daily lessons that you send me along with trainings from WA kyle/carson. Im writing down Ideas for Niches /brainstorming ect.. but to be frank, there's so much info that I think im getting OVERWHELMED on something fairly simple... So amidst READING all of the training, ideas, ect... I need to understand what is one of the first actual, physical ACTIONS I should be taking to get my ball rolling to the next phase? (I feel like website is the answer...) your advice?

Hey Doug and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

My name is Steve and I'm the owner of IveTriedThat. You signed up through me and I thought I'd tell you a little about myself. I joined Wealthy Affiliate back in 2009, over 7 years ago. I was looking to learn how to supplement my income through Internet Marketing and what I've found was so much more.

By 2010, I was working full-time from home. These days, ALL of my income comes from my ventures online. In fact, my wife just recently quit her job to start her own business as well. Internet Marketing and Wealthy Affiliate have provided us with amazing opportunities (we've bought a house, get to travel the world, and best of all, no longer spend time "going to work") and I'm incredibly thankful to the training, tools, and support here that made it all possible. :)

I'd love for you to see the same level of success. So, if you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, do not hesitate to get in touch with me. I am here to help!

To get started, you should add a short description and upload a picture. Wealthy Affiliate is a community and having a profile and a picture will really help get you acquainted here.

Anyways, thought I would just introduce myself. If there's anything I can do for you Doug, just let me know!



PS. Once you setup your profile, reply to this message and I'll send you my 10 Hottest Business Ideas for 2016. They'll really help you get moving quickly here!
