About Drewtho
Joined January 2015
Hi, I am Andrew. I spend a lot of time on the internet. I have done pretty much since the internet got started. I keep in touch with family on Facebook, read a lot of alternate news (Jeff Rense program mostly), emails, I do look at msn a bit but I am not a fan of main stream media. Buy and sell on eBay (I like PayPal) and I find paying my bills with internet banking to be very convenient.

There are things I don't like about the internet but overall I reckon it's great.
Somehow got myself into some email marketing from an online training courses provider and some months ago after a chain of marketing emails and discounting I enrolled with them for an Online Marketing Consultant course.
I didn't know much about it but I thought "what the hey".

The training has been very good and well delivered but I really don't see myself setting up as an online marketing consultant: creating websites for businesses and optimising their sites through the analytics. Just can't see it happening. It has however introduced me to a new language about PPC, SEO, CTR, content marketing, Analytics, heat maps, banner ads, traffic ...etc...etc

Early this year I happened across information on Affiliate Marketing ...ultimately bringing me through to WA. Going with my gut: I liked what I read and I like Kyle.

....less than one month later an I have two websites up and running that I am very happy with: http://www.hempthusiasm.com and http://www.elegantmenswatches.com ....good luck to all of you aspiring marketing affiliates ...I am learning heaps here, love the community and I am in for the long haul.

Good to see that you're still around.

Myself will be going back to work in my trade next week. My hands have healed enough that the therapist has released me from any restrictions.
Hoping to start another website for the apprentice coordinator at our union hall.
So my time with WA will greatly slow down as well.
Glad we can stay in touch, bro.

Talk at ya later.

No seriously, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for following me. I’m pretty impressed with WA training and I think we will find a gold mine of information. Hmmm, seems like geniuses like us tend to gather in the same place (lol). Anyway, here’s wishing you all my best for your success with online marketing.

Yes it is a great learning environment Mario ....I am particularly impressed by the willingness to share information and know how.
.....I think so many learning establishments could learn a lot from WA - the lessons are given in easy to follow steps by Kyle (well done on his part), and the community help each other to get over the hurdles ...there is a great spirit of co-operation.
...It is a real shame that school could not have been like this.

Hello Drewtho, I thoroughly enjoyed browsing your site 'hempthusiasm'. I will do some shopping when the income increases begin. I like the flow of your site & I may have some questions or need some help navigating through building a website. I'm quite the newbie to online tech mechanics. I only know how to google stuff, email & facebook....I'm almost illitaerate where computer smarts are concerned. The way I see it, I'm a blank canvas & can build knowledge based on the education through WA. Look forward to working with you. Blessings & success to you! Elizabeth

Hi Andrew! Thank you for following me back. It looks like you are doing really good. Keep it up! I made the mistake of not asking questions at the beginning, I'm glad you are smart enough to! Here is my website so far if you would like to take a look at it and leave me a comment:http://choosingmydiet.com

drewtho Premium
Hi Vicky ...can't claim to being smart, but you are right - not being afraid to ask questions is a very sensible way to go. There is a lot to be said for riding on the shoulders of giants.
Looked at your website and reckon you know what you are doing ...nice, tidy and pleasing to the eye - good information.
...left an onsite comment.
...one thing I always recommend is using the justify feature - it really tidies up the appearance of the content and shows attention to detail I reckon. Check out the text on my websites and you will see what I mean, any questions about that, get back to me ok.

Hi Andrew! Thanks for your input, I did like you said using the justify feature, it does look nicer. Thank you!
Have a nice day!
Vicky
Reply
drewtho Premium
Took a look Vicky ...love it like that ...If you use the justify feature in your first paragraph when you are writing your content, it will keep justifying right through. Keep an eye on it though - adding an image or something can throw a paragraph out of justification, and you have to justify that one again.
Left a reply to your reply to my comment onsite by the way, just because I was there.
Take care ......Andrew
Reply
vicky29714 Premium
OK, thanks I'll have to take a look at it. I'll try to remember about that justify feature too, thanks for telling me about it! Was really busy today and tomorrow, so I'm not going to be able to work on my website or training today, Thursday I should be able to.
Have a wonderful day!

Hello Andrew.

I thought it a good idea to drop in and say hi and follow you today. I really do appreciate your profile bio, it gives us a chance to get to know you on a more personal basis and that in my mind helps when we need to pitch in and help with something.

You are doing great things already with your website on watches. For only having started in January 2015, WOW, its fantastic. I really enjoy your writing style too.

I did notice that some of the images were not loading and I am sorry to say I have no clue on why that would be happening when it seems that most of them load just fine.

Have you tried going to your site through an "incognito" window, maybe it will show you what I was seeing. Not sure but worth a try if you haven't used it yet.

Well...gotta' get back to my writing now. I am struggling to get my blog posts written. I chose a niche where I am having to do a bit of research before I put up some info (don't want to send folks to the wrong resources) so its been taking me close to a day and a half to get things written and published.

Stay the course. I see great things developing for you here!

Linda

drewtho Premium
Thanks for the encouragement Linda ...I appreciate it. I actually have two websites, the other one is http://hempthusiasm.com - needless to say they are keeping me busy as well as working a full time job.
Will look into that incognito thing you are talking about ...I just assumed every site had the occasional fail to load image - because I have noticed it on others (usually just refresh it).
I don't like it if it is happening to mine and isn't normal.
....I used to scuba dive as well but haven't for some years now - sold my gear when I had the small kids because I needed the cash ...hope you are still enjoying it .......bye for now and take care ........Andrew
....Incognito doesn't seem to work for me - don't have that three line type icon up the top right corner (maybe because I don't have the Google chrome)???

Hello Andrew...so providential, I just finished reading through some of the information in you hempthusiasm.com site. I had no idea there was so much history and good history to the hemp industry. Truly loved the points you have made about hemp farming being a way to create a more sustainable future. And what a hoot to learn about Henry Ford and his help car.

Wow the things that get lost when there is an agenda. GREAT job with that site too. I will go back in a bit and be sure to leave you a couple of comments. Just didn't have the time to do it right now and I don't like leaving a comment that is not salient to the subject I just read.

Keep smiling! I see you coming out of the 9 - 5 world and into your website business, probably sooner than later. Keep at the developing of your sites and follow Kyle's recommendations. Its going to be such a hoot to see you doing well.

Welcome to WA

Andrew, thanks for the follow. Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. You have just found the right place to learn all there is to know about this online marketing community and how to build a highly successful business.
Just remember, this is a marathon race, not a short sprint.
So just have in mind that this online business success is not only going to take a lot of hard work from you but also dedication and plenty of time as you cannot become successful in a day or two.
Don't be in a hurry for success. Just do things right the first time around and success will meet you the harder you work.
Follow Kyle's videos and instructions and if you get stuck....well.......that is what the community is for! Just ask and you will receive everyone’s help each other out because we all care!

Have you come up with a niche yet? Saw your hair (Silver Crown, I say) and thought I would share what mine is http://silverandgrayhair.com/ Not much to see there yet. Still building content offline.

Thanks for your review... Pewter - Jeeze, now you have given me another color to add to my Gray spectrum. I visited you sites and left a comment on the first. Very interesting and kinda funny. On your watch site, I would suggest some headers to break up the content. Maybe the name or descriptive information about the watch being shown in the photo. All in all a good site for selling.

Hi Andrew, thank you for the connection and I enjoyed reading your profile. Learning the language... I know exactly what you mean.. to start with everything I heard was Gobble-D-Goop, like opt-ins and list building and squeeze pages etc etc, yet the more you stick with it all the more it just all starts to fall into place... Like you, I have done courses and now ... like you I need to actually start a website and producing content of my own.. I have had a little success online, yet I want consistent success... and thats a whole different ball game :) Totally do-able though :) best wishes with your mission... Ali

Thanks for the welcome Kyle, liked your reviews on affilorama and your own WA ...impressed by your answers to all those questions ...I have one question though at this stage: You say one website is enough and of course I don't know enough at this stage to agree or disagree (still got to do your training) ...but the video on G sniper did make some sense to me ...lots of websites, one per product and virtually cornering the market on that specific item through SEO and keyword strategy so that anyone searching specifically for that product would come through your site. At this stage I do not know the cost of having so many websites, but the strategy (if I got it right) did make some sense ...I would really like your opinion.
Your friend,
Andrew

Kyle Premium
That is a horrible idea, it is much better to be great at ONE thing than mediocre at many. This is what we teach because it is how you create a PROPER business online and as you go through the training, you are going to learn how to effectively build a business.

Of course you can diversify and be in multiple niches at once, but get your formula for success down first before you try to replicate. Mini sites are something that Google doesn't like, they are looking more and more for authority and this is impossible to accomplish if you are trying to manage and build out many sites at once.

Great to have you here at WA Andrew! :)
