About EddieBush
Joined February 2015
Self-employed software developer by day. Affiliate marketer by night.

I do fine, but I want more financial and time freedom in my life. I also want to grow my retirement faster. I started late!

I could not have learned to be an affiliate marketer without the training here. Of course, you - the community - have also contributed to that, and I thank you.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Eddie,

Reply
EddieBush Premium
In a way, I am a consultant. However, I do put a lot of rubber on the road. Right now, I'm in more of a rubber meets the road role. Doesn't seem to be a demand for consultants in the current market.

I think you're saying to be more 'advisory'. It's a good goal. I guess I just enjoy the details too much. Plus, when you're a one-man shop, it's hard not to take whatever is available (the best of it, of course) to keep the paycheck coming. :-)

Be well!

Eddie, 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 Eddie.

EddieBush Premium
Here's what I do when I get stuck:
1 - Use the WA search bar at the top of the screen.
2 - Go into chat and ask for help.
3 - Post a question for the community.

Just doing (1) normally gets me a lot of answers to look through. From there, I may still go into (2) just to get peoples take. I certain have made it to (3) though, and I try to encourage people to use this because you can get a really broad audience looking at your question.

Sometimes, you may have to wait a little bit. Often, you'll get responses from one or all of those techniques very quickly though.

... but, yes, you can ask me questions :-) I seriously doubt you need to if you do the above 3 steps though! That's what I did to answer your question :-)

EddieBush Premium
I think I read those both, but they are good reads for sure!

You're right about the self-employed person. GB or US. Same thing. ... and you never really get to be in charge! I think it's funny that people think that. You just get a bigger slice of the pie (but not much!) and a LOT more responsibility and stress.

This WA thing sounds way better to me. Internet marketing in general sounds way better: Put in the effort, get the reward, and let your work keep working for you even after you're not working on it anymore. :-)

'Course you gotta get the site successful first, and keep tabs on it in case it needs some more love down the line. I think being able to focus on that full-time sounds like a much better place to be though.

... and to be clear: you're still not in charge in that scenario! The visitors are in charge :-) ... but there's a lot more freedom with that path.

Yeah, I'm a software guy, but - to be honest - I try to keep that part of my in a box, with the lid on, and a big rock on top the lid. One of the nice things about WordPress is that I get to focus on being a content author. It's difficult enough to just worry about content without also letting myself write code to tweak my site out :-)

I have found it handy though on a couple of very small things. As awesome as some themes are, they seem not to be built for a long site name. Us niche builders tend to have some whoppers :-)

Marie,

Thanks so much for the kind words. I'm just trying to share the teachings I've received from the site and the community.

I try to steer people right, but - in the end - I'll tell you like my mama always told me, "That's my take, but go study for yourself so that you have your own opinion." :-)

I find that if/when I go and re-go-through a piece of training, I will pick up something I hadn't previously. It's amazing how the condition of our mind at the time we receive something can make a difference in what we receive from a piece of material.

Thanks again, Marie, for your kind words. I'm sure we'll wind up helping one another as we progress on our journey.

All the Best!

Eddie

Thank you for adding me to your network. It was very nice to meet you in last night's after WAbby with Craig and Jay.

Number one: Follow the lessons and don't be shy about asking questions about those things you do not fully understand. Make a list of possible niches, research and see which niches have the most potential. Make a list of goals for your site… write them down (it is hard to reach the stars if you don't have a plan to get there). Think deeply about these things.

As you begin to find your direction, visualize yourself in 3 months, 6 months, one year from now…Write down what you see in your mind. Research your competition, not for copying purposes, but to insure you will do it better than them. Start creating great content supported by amazing visuals (photos, images,video, infographics… Make sure your main page has maximum impact to compel your visitors to click and explore.(you have about 3 seconds pique their interest enough to scan the page. Support your initial impact with great precise, useful well optimized content. Make sure it interesting and complete. BE PATIENT… it takes time to build your future. :) Julie
Reply
EddieBush Premium
Thanks, Julie! I know the 'nail it all down' approach works for a lot of people. My approach may seem a touch 'wandering', but it has worked to make me a very successful software developer. What I tend to do is start somewhere and go in a direction.

Example: I just posted an interest piece on internet marketing where I broke it down into sub-categories and dug into each briefly. I'll follow that up with doing a touch deeper dive into each of those with another interest-based piece for each sub-category.

Along the way, I plan to drop affiliate links on the segways. So, say I'm transitioning from talking about affiliate marketing to email marketing in the main piece - I drop a 'Learn more about Affiliate Marketing for FREE!' link.

Over time, I'll add some review content - or something like that - some commercial piece. ... and then I can start subbing those direct affiliate links for links to my review/commercial piece. And, of course, as I elaborate on the main interest piece, I can do some internal linking there.

I'm not easily frustrated, really. I tend to be a little different than most in that regard. Maybe its because I'm a software developer by training. All I need to keep me going is the ability to move forward. In the past, when I hit a wall with IM, I had nowhere to turn, and then something else that I could do something about came along and I stopped pursuing whatever IM goal I had at the time. Now that I've found WA, I don't think that will be a roadblock any longer.

At this stage, I really think I just need to keep studying and also practice. That WABinar was awesome! I actually really like how Jay does them. The hangout after was awesome too. It's surprising and very much appreciated the way that people here put so much care into everything. I think I'll be here for a VERY long time.

I work better with less precise goals though. For me, my goal each day is simply to 'move things forward'. Some days, that will be by writing, some it will be by studying, and some it may simply be by sharing some links on social networks like I did today. I think perhaps as important as anything is learning WHEN to post content and push it to the social networks. I've got some learning to do there, but that's fine - I love to learn. :-)

I'm writing too much and need to shut up :-) Thanks for stopping by though!

Hey Eddie! Just wanted to follow up and see how you're doing so far. Hope you've been enjoying the training offered here and the community as well.

You must be wondering if you can really make money after going through the courses here in WA. Truthfully, it can be done because I have experimented it and I know it works.

Just wanted to let you know that if you have upgraded to the premium membership, it covers the full spectrum of training, there will not be any further products that you "need" to purchase within the members area. This is unlike any programs out there.

Personally, I feel that the WA course is the best stepping stone for any one who wants to start an online business. You will be a seasoned affiliate marketer after going through the entire WA course.

See what the premium membership offers:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/order/signup/a_aid/04fd793b

Let me know if you have any questions or need a hand with anything! I will be more than happy to help you out to build a successful future for you.

Cheers!

Jack,

I actually did sign-up. My curiosity was pushing me to dig into things that are premium content and so I just though, "Man, I can blow that first month's subscription on nothing. This, at least seems to be a pretty good educational platform."

I have no doubt I'll find success with WA. I'm a learner and a do-er! I love to learn and I love to teach. In the end, I think it's about the fact that I 1) enjoy solving puzzles, 2) like to be the 'answer guy', and 3) I get a huge rush from impacting peoples' lives in a positive way.

That last point was one of the tippers for me. I get the feeling Kyle is the same. Having watched and listened to him through so many videos at this point, it just seems ever-present. He tries to keep it moving and not wander too much, but he seems very concerned about ensuring the content is covered in a quality way that will help ensure it 'sticks' too.

Thanks for reaching back out to follow-up. I'm not going anywhere shortly. This is coming right out of business revenue (I'm self-employed as a software developer) as research for helping me 1) gain another income stream and 2) 'continuing education' type of thing. So, I'll take some time to learn and mull over the direction I really want to go with my first site and then dive in.

Interestingly, I found your site while doing research for my new site which I created as a result of buying Google Sniper. I found your site while doing some research to figure out how to get ranked higher.

Another interesting thing: I initially thought I wanted to target work-at-home opportunities, and I think that will certainly be an aspect of what I do, but I was planning to start with the online surveys. After really digging into your site, I'm thinking I need to start somewhere else though. The last thing I want to do is send folks somewhere they will be taken advantage of. I would have figured it out though, because my plan was to buy the program and have my wife try it for a month prior to posting any recommendation. ... but, in the meantime, I'd have potentially sent people somewhere and made money off of them that I might not later have felt good about.

I know you knock Google Sniper a bit, and - truthfully - since coming to WA, it's clear to me that there are better resources. However, I'm not sure the puppy dog sell that WA uses would necessarily convert a person who is in the "get rich quick" mindset. Maybe I'm wrong.

I've got the Google Sniper site though (http://www.thegooglesniperreview.com/), and I'll continue to update it so I can get it ranked. I think I am going to add some WA content there though too. Maybe an alternatives tab or something. I was kind of hoping to have Google Sniper make the first dollar for me on that site though, so I'll probably wait until then.

Sorry for the long message! I've been thinking about you though and the events that brought me here. It's very interesting how I was working through Google Sniper and came to WA :-)

All the Best, Jack!

Thanks, Jack!

The site is very "together." It's clear thought and care went into it. I haven't scratched deep enough to have an opinion yet, but I'm thinking hard about doing a first month so I can scratch a little deeper. Gosh, I can blow that initial cost on nothing and see no value out of it. Here, at minimum, I get a sense that I'll get some education to help me pursue affiliate marketing, and that has to at least pay for itself eventually.

Not sure which direction I'll go yet. I've got several days to decide. I really would like to make 2015 the year I finally see measured success with affiliate marketing though, so we'll see how it goes.

Thanks for the ping. I'll let ya know if I do have questions or just generally feel the need to pester you about anything.

Thanks again, Jack!

Eddie
