About Dshipp17
Joined April 2017
I've been trying to become successful at a home based business since June 2006; little did I know that I would need it for a livelihood by December 2006; you see, I was working for the Department of Health and Human Services, FDA, when retaliatory harassment for an EEO complaint would lead to my wrongful termination; I've been in employment litigation and in need of an attorney since January 2007 for re-reinstatement. I had some success and was on cloud nine with enthusiasm, when I got a few affiliate sales in 2008; my weakness, however, was that I was completely reliant on Craigslist; when Craigslist invented the the ghosting procedure to end my us of Craigslist in about September 2008, I haven't been able to make an affiliate sale since; I've been looking and thinking in a state of paralysis by analysis, ever since; I've considered various other options, from drop-shipping to various techniques of real estate investing, with no further sales (e. G. well, I did successfully use drop-shipping for about 5 sales on eBay, but, unfortunately, it was ended just as it was started by a scammer pretending to be a supplier; this destroyed a PayPal account for me, ending other options). Now, in drips, I've been trying to get back into a groove. I needed a structure and a guideline for starting a affiliate marketing effort with new, relatively rapid traffic generation, other than using Craigslist, but needing to attract that type of traffic; i want to avoid the skeptics and the competition and actually reach people who are fresh and actually looking for a product and/service; that's been my challenge since September 2008; I've listened to many people boast about their success, but, I'm looking for real help to share in some of that success. This program seems to fit what I've been looking for, but, I want to evaluate the program, follow it, and search for help and receive when I need it.

That's cool and any questions all you have to do is ask a question in the search box at the top and a video to walk you through it is up there trust me I use it as well. What is your niche or product/Sevice you providing

Ok, thanks for the help; right now, my niche is back pain; I'm in course 3, Lesson 6 of the certification training, basically the point where I start monetizing my website; I guess this is a good place to start.

What it all come down to on websites is traffic and then opt in conversions. You have to drive quality traffic to your page. It depends you can do it free yourself of you can buy them. I prefer to drive traffic myself so I become the influencer while branding myself at the same time makes some videos of you promoting your products and some video giving away something of value for free. It's some work but all doable check out videos on that lesson

Since you've been here several months, I was hoping that, if not a cash flow, maybe you've made a few sales?

Hi mate,

We are practically classmates coming in at the same time.
How are you doing?
Reply
dshipp17 Premium
Oh, I'm doing ok; I just had one epiphany about my blog posts and one epiphany about the amount of traffic that I'll be receiving; it now fixes that weighted feeling of digging for keywords and coming up with posts.

Hey David, how's everything coming along now that you've been a member for a few days? I hope you've found your way into the "Get Started Here" training toward the top of the menu on the left and that you're enjoying yourself so far!

Some people gravitate towards the "Affiliate Bootcamp" training which is something I don't recommend right off of the bat if you've never made money in internet marketing before. I have a detailed blog post covering this topic if it's something you're wrestling with and you'd like me to send you the link.

I know that may be a bit confusing, but if you have any questions at all don't hesitate to ask! I hope you're enjoying your time here so far :)

It looks like you're moving along very nicely, David! I see you have your profile all setup and hopefully you've been engaging with the community a bit!

I keep a pretty good pulse of my referrals here, especially the ones that are working hard to help themselves (and so do the co-founders of Wealthy Affiliate, Kyle and Carson), so if you're willing to work hard here, I'm happy to help support you every way that I can!

Let me know if there's anything I can help you with.

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 David! I wanted to start you off with a quick note that could SIGNIFICANTLY impact your success with Wealthy Affiliate. Read this entire message if you are serious about being successful in internet marketing (it's lengthy, but I'm not joking when I say that this advice could make or break your entire internet marketing career):


1) You'll need to work consistently and hard. There's going to be a lot to learn in the beginning and you may feel overwhelmed at a point, but keep pressing forward and you'll make it through. It happened to me and every other successful internet marketer at some point, and the only way to become successful in this industry is to push past that overload whenever you get there.


Do yourself a favor and commit to a number of hours that you can work each week right now. It doesn't have to be massive, but it should be more than 10 between evenings and weekends at least. Just remember the more you work each week, the faster you'll learn and draw closer to success.


After you've picked the number of hours you can work each week, commit to working that much for AT LEAST six months - a year would be better. You won't see results immediately in this industry, and being consistent is the key. Pick a number of hours you can work each week, then work those hours for at least six months. It's something you've probably never done in this industry, and this advice alone will make a HUGE difference in your chances at succeeding with internet marketing as long as you take it seriously and STICK WITH IT.


2) I recommend starting off with this training (which you can access with your free account): It just scratches the surface of the MASSIVE amount of helpful content in WA, but you'll get a good "feel" for the teaching style here and begin to see the power of all of the great things they're teaching here at Wealthy Affiliate.


3) DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE COMMUNITY. Two of the best places you can go to for help when you get stuck are the "Live Chat" and the "Classrooms" sections located on the panel to your left. You'll find direction and inspiration through the community here, which is one of the reasons I recommend WA so highly.


4) Finally, you don't ever have to upgrade to the premium account here at Wealthy Affiliate if you don't want to. You'll have limited access using your free account for as long as you wish. HOWEVER, if you're serious about internet and affiliate marketing then you should invest in the premium membership for AT LEAST one month. You could look back on it years from now and see it as a pivotal moment in your internet marketing career, but you never will if you don't at least give it a try.


Check it out for a few days though - you don't need to upgrade right now. Make sure it's a good fit for you, and if you upgrade within the first 7 days you'll receive your first month's membership at more than 50% off. I keep my membership active and recurring every month so I can be here for the people I refer like you, so realize that I'm putting my money where my mouth is here!


On top of that, if you upgrade to a premium membership at the discounted rate within the first 7 days I have a special bonus EXCLUSIVE to people that join WA through me and upgrade within the first week of creating their free account. This bonus will show you how to be twice as successful with WA or any other legitimate internet marketing program out there and gives you some very valuable video lessons (which I recorded for you personally, of course) to ensure you get off to the right step in your internet marketing business.


I keep a close watch on the list of people that upgrade from starter to premium, so I'll send the bonus your way within 24 hours. If you upgrade and don't receive it within that time frame for some reason, just post on my WA profile and let me know!


I don't offer that bonus so you'll spring for the membership and make me more money, I offer the bonus just in case you needed that tiny "push" to make sure you invest in this training because I know that you will use for the rest of your IM career and it could change your life. I've referred hundreds of people now and I have NEVER had anyone tell me they were dissatisfied.


Best of luck to you! You're about to embark on a journey that could change your life forever, so make sure you take it seriously, put in the time and effort, and expect great things in return!


You know where to find me,
Ian Pribyl


P.S. I know I've thrown A LOT of information your way in this message, but I wanted to give you one last thing. Here is a video tour of the members' area to help ensure you get the most out of your free membership as possible: http://youtu.be/NDmMcMtMB8c


Sorry for sending so much your way at once, I just want to set you up for success as much as I possibly can!
