About DukeDivDoug
Joined July 2019
I was born in Lakeland, Fl and attended the Polk County Schools. Upon graduating from High School I married my High School sweetheart Elaine. I always wanted to be an accountant so I attended Florida Southern College, our local private Methodist College, and earned a BS in Accounting and MBA. While attending school and climbing the corporate ladder we raised two children who are now married. Elaine and I have four grandchildren. During the 1990’s I changed vocations attended Duke University and became a United Methodist pastor. I recently retired in September 2018 and am excited about what I’m learning about affiliate marketing. My goal is to make some additional spending money so I can enjoy retirement years with Elaine. We have worked hard since getting married in 1974 and now we want to continue to work hard but also mix in a little bit of retirement fun!!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Premium!

Glad that you joined us.

Wealthy Affiliate is an amazing environment to learn and apply our skills towards creating an online business. I tried to do this alone before and was completely lost.

Now I know why.

There are so many tricks of the trade and it saves so much time having it all laid out clearly in its training programs.

Keep following the training and exercises every day. Give it a year to see significant results. You'll be a happy camper by then. We all make progress at different rates and it is possible to see meaningful results in 4-6 months. Google cannot be rushed.

Google rewards people with websites that provide value to their visitors. It helps to boost their ad revenue of course! And that helps your websites get high rankings. But it takes time to build credibility. Once they realize your site is an authority site, good things will happen faster.

When you get stuck, and you will, just ask for help in the discussion area located below each lesson. Scroll down to find it. Another member who has the answer will get back to you promptly.

In the meantime have fun with the program. Much success to you.

Cheers!

Edwin

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Doug!

Nathaniell here - you probably remember me from my site One More Cup of Coffee. I'm glad to see you've signed up and are ready to get started building your online business.

Right now, there are just two super important things you need to know.

1) If you ask questions and interact with the community you are far more likely to see results with your business. The support here at WA is the best in the industry...please take advantage of it.

2) You can talk to me about anything! I've been a member for 9 years now, so I'll be able to personally answer any of your questions about WA or starting an online business. Leave a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/nathaniell or respond directly to this message!

There are a ton of other features worth exploring, but they are explained in the main training. Time to get started on the first lesson!

PS. Did you know that you'll already have your website built by lesson 4? Crazy, I know!

PPS. See who has already made money by following WA's training: ★ ★ ★ Access Your Bonuses! ★ ★ ★

Since you joined through me, I've got two surprises for you when you join the Premium membership.

☆ Live Case Study Webinar Series ☆

Watch a professional do things step by step and get an overview of how this biz works. Watch him build the website, including research, rank, content creation and monetization. Total length of the videos is 2+ hours

☆ Top 5 Newbie Mistakes And How To Fix Them ☆

Shave off 3-4 weeks of startup time when you avoid these mistakes. These common time-wasters will delay results for many newbies. Get your business ranked and earning money as fast as possible.

____

Before you go, can you please respond to this message so I know you made it inside the community? I'd like to connect with you so I can keep an eye out for your questions this week.

Starting any new skill or business comes with its challenges, for sure. If things are confusing right now, Kyle has spent some time breaking down the process in the most simplistic way possible. Success online is at the core a 4 step process and he have broken them down within this video: Broken, down, the process looks like this:

Step 1: Choose your niche
Step 2: Build your website/content
Step 3: Get rankings in search engines (leads to traffic)
Step 4: Monetize your traffic

This applies in absolutely every niche and as you work through the training here at WA, you are going to be walked through this exact process. This is fundamental for ANY success online.

As you go through the training here you are going to learn the process of creating a business online. I look forward to seeing your business come together.

If you have any further questions let me know Doug.
