About DTenter
Joined July 2016
In March 2016 my job, where I've worked for the past 15 years, cut my schedule in half. I'm pretty engrained into the company and I had the false notion that they couldn't fully operate without me there full time. I was wrong. Our market had been declining and the economics of operating a business prevailed.

We reworked our budget and figured out how to deal with the loss of income. But I knew I needed to do something. A month later I was browsing Periscope and I found this guy taking about affiliate marketing. I was intrigued. I asked him about the skills needed to run AF campaigns. I had experience with all of them, with copy writing being my weakest point.

So I started to research AF. I read a lot. I watched a lot of videos. I subscribed to mailing lists. But I couldn't quite figure out how to get started. I hear the best way to learn AF is to just "Launch a campaign". Ok. How do I do that?

Eventually I found Wealthy Affiliate. I signed up and continued my research. I was immediately welcomed by multiple members. I read through the first lessons. It made sense to me. I upped to premium membership so I could learn more. I realize that even though I've studied so much, I still have more to learn. And I'm excited about the journey.

Hi Alan,

Thanks for the follow up! No struggling here. I've read through the Getting Started lesson, and most of the Affiliate Bootcamp lesson. It all makes sense and none of it is overwhelming at all.

I'm reconsidering my first niche idea. I've been a motorcycle rider for about 30 years, so I was looking at that. But I think my first niche was to broad. Lots of keyword searches, but that would just generate traffic. Not conversions. I'm trying to narrow it down to something that will convert to sales, but isn't so narrow that no one is searching for it. I'm also looking at Amazon as a commission source, or some other offer.

I've been on vacation since Wednesday. So I'm not really doing anything this week. But I'm committed to setting the niche and getting started next week. I watched Marcus1978's videos on his mini niche site case study. That's an interesting concept. Quick and easy to implement too. I might give that a try.

Sounds like you're getting along fine Darrel

I'm just on my vacation as well for a few more days so enjoy your break and we'll touch base again when we're both back in the saddle. :)

Hi Darrel and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.

You're going to love it here!

The Wealthy Affiliate Community is very lively and there's a great bunch of very friendly people hanging out here with an enormous amount of knowledge and experience in building successful online businesses and they are always willing to lend a hand to anybody who needs some help so if you get stuck with anything don't be afraid to ask questions.

The best place to get started is here: If you do have any questions you can drop by my profile here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/alan-hocking and leave me a message, or use the "Live Chat" where you will get answers very quickly.

I'm on there most days! :)

You can also ask questions within discussions, tutorials, blogs, or directly to other members on their profiles.

As you can see there is no shortage of help and support here at WA!

Remember to complete your profile by adding a picture and telling me a little bit about yourself so that I can work out the best way to help you move forward and achieve your goals.

There's a video to walk you through it here: JUST A QUICK REMINDER!

I know you're going to love building your free websites and being a part of the Wealthy Affiliate Community and I just wanted to remind you that you can stay on your free membership for as long as you like and there will never be any pressure for you to upgrade to a premium membership but I'd also like to remind you that you do have the opportunity to try out the full premium membership as well without breaking the bank!

If you do decide to try out the premium membership in the next seven days you will get the first month for just $19

That's a massive 59% discount on the normal price of $47 (There should be a timer set at the top of the page showing how much time you have left to claim your discount!)

For now though just have a good look around and enjoy yourself!

Let me know if I can help you out with anything else and I'll touch base with you again in a couple of days to see how you're getting on.
