About Duncan72
Joined April 2017
I'm Duncan, I recently resigned from my job as technical support manager of a hospitality supplier company after six years due to office politics, amongst other things (empty promises). I have decided that I need to work for myself and support my partner and family. I am hard-working, enthusiastic, friendly and so on... I have a HND in Electronics and Physics and various management and higher level training certificates. I enjoy the outdoors and spending quality time with family and friends. My ambition is to be self-sufficient, let the lady of the house stop working, support my two boys in their endeavours, buy a house on the Spanish East coast so I can walk on the beach and swim in the sea.

Hello Duncan ... thank you for the follow. You have become part of the growing trend of folks deciding they are DONE with the 9 to 5. Their reasons are many and office politics is definitely high on the list.

Your background and skill will serve you well here at WA. Affiliate marketing is simple ... but not easy. That's because there is so much to learn and do before one of your sites gets traction and you begin to experience some steady, positive cash flow.

I wish you the best on your WA journey.

Hey Duncan thanks for the follow and I will follow as well. Good for you to be able to leave your J-O-B (just over broke). The best thing is that you left on your terms and not being fired. I can see what your dreams and goals are. As you can see WA has helped you start making those dreams and goals come to reality. Best of luck in your business.

Hello Duncan,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Duncan, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Duncan.

Thanks Kyle, Yes I am enjoying this and building two web sites at the same time. I have also sent off for 500 business cards so I can reach out to people in the streets...lol...so hopefully I can start earning soon. I am enjoying the feedback I get from people on here and like to comment now and again on their questions, progress and goals. I have registered with Amazon UK and Europe, as well as Paidonresults and Viglink - not sure about the latter 2, but we'll see. I have also added the Amazon widget to my Wordpress, which is great for finding accociated products to promote and review.

Thank you for your input. I do have a question. How do I set up a mailing list and ask people to follow me on my web pages?
Reply
docub Premium
In generic terms all one needs to do is provide a method to collect email addresses from your visitors. Having said that, this is where it all changes.
The methodology you choose to collect the email addresses is varied. This can be a video form, can be a inline form on your website or can be a pop up form, a link placed virtually anywhere or even a signup sheet offline.

The most proficient way is to use an email Autoresponder service service, such as AWeber, GetResponse, MailChimp and many others. You can get starter programs or they might be even FREE and all usually have free trials.

Since there are so many options, I suggest that you search the trainings for keywords: 'autoresponders' or 'email list' 'list building' or 'optin forms' by searching on WA or you can go to the link provided in my welcome message above for a list of 'My Trainings'.

There are multiple tutorials & video trainings available for all the keywords that I listed in the sentence above. I think that would be the best way and give you a broad overview of exactly what you need to do.

I hope it's get you started and it helps you out thanks a lot for getting back to me talk soon.

Wow the Spanish East coast, AWESOME!!! I wish you much good luck, I have been here a short while also and experienced bad burnout as a Technical support Delivery Manager (escalation)... I got laid off though... It was a blessing that it happened. I know what you mean about politics!

Thanks for the follow, WA is a great place to be!

Hello! And Welcome to the Wealthy Affiliate. I have been her for about a month and have really found the whole community and training program here very helpful. The way it's all set up is efficient and effective. I've spent a lot of time over the years trying to find and learn ways to build my own content on my own website and lost a lot of money doing it all. I honestly feel that this is the place to be.

You can check out the site I've build in the month I've been here following the training and utilizing the community of entrepreneurs as I move along.

My website is: www.preparetoact.org It's all about womens safety, safety products, blogs, product reviews, etc.
Don't expect much, it still needs a lot of work. Please feel free to offer any advice or suggestions you think might help to make it better.

I've followed you and feel free to do the same in case I could be of any help at all.

Best of luck with all that you strive to accomplish.

Chris

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! :)

Thank you. I have several niches... Badminton Shoes and Rackets, Woodworking Tools, etc. I have started my 1st web page and optimised it - just need the content now, but I'm getting there :)
