Well, what can I say? I'm very blessed in that I'm one of the few people that is job free by choice. lol I've been in the make money industry since the early 90s. But was never able to make a full time living with it until about 2008.

Around that time is when I did the math. I was finally making more money part time with my internet marketing career than I was full time in Corporate America. So I made the choice to leave and have never looked back.
(Knock on wood!)

Now I'm a stay at home dad that is able to raise my kids and annoy my wife all the time because she no longer has to work. All of this is a direct results of my internet marketing career and a lot of help from the big guy above.

Most of the time you can find me chilling at my blog: www.WorkAtHomeNoScams.com helping people make money from home and responding to their comments. Yes there are other options besides internet marketing and I teach folks about them while making them laugh in the process.

Furthermore I've taken the SEO and Wordpress website creation skills you'll learn here on WA to start my own offline digital marketing agency: www.InternetMarketingSmarts.com I've literally earned thousands of dollars to design websites for small businesses and promote them. So you can even use what you learn here at WA for businesses outside of affiliate marketing.

All and all I'm just regular dude that has been very blessed because I have a positive mindset, positive folks around me, and more importantly I take action. So that's my spiel.

I do want to end by saying this. You can achieve anything if you have the right mindset, take action and don't give up on yourself. Failure is only an option if you believe it exists.

Hi Eddy, I've totally enjoyed reading your profile and your posts inspires me to keep on this WA internet journey towards success. I'm a newbie trying to make this a priority as I've tried many internet training programs before, but to no avail.

Spent a good bit of money on training but it was not about me. You know the deal. However, this community is REAL and I'm loving it here. I do believe I can have the success I've been searching for all along. I'm sure with your assistance and the team here, it will come to fruition.

The helping hands here are phenomenal. Continued blessings to you.

Very inspiring Eddy. I would love to just be able to annoy my wife all day. HA. Sounds like it has been a long road but one worth traveling. I love to hear the information and education we learn on WA can translate to other opportunities as well. That was a hope of mine as I am in the process of starting a real estate investment business and can only see this process being beneficial.
Thanks again,

Seriously...! This is amazing. I've read through several of your blog posts and found them to be really inspiring...! I'm hoping you could give me your 2 cents -- because whatever you are doing I will do...!
I am struggling to come up with a realistic goal for myself -- I want to make xxx by xxx date and not sure how to set that benchmark for myself.
I am tired of working 9 to 5 and starting a new job this week which I am dreading. I need to make this work.
Any ideas how to set this goal for myself?
Thank you,

Thanks Amy. My advice is not to put a time limit on your success. People are willing to work the rest of their lives working for someone else and make them rich. But we want to put time limits on working for ourselves and making our own dreams come true. So my advice is you work on this until you achieve what you want. That's what I did. If I would have put some stupid deadline, I would have given up and missed out on the wonderful life my business has afforded my family and I.

Read the following: I hope it helps.

Hi Eddy and thank you so much for responding. I read your post, "How long will it take me to be successful" and I do understand what you are saying, totally. I am guilty of being impatient and desperate.

I understand that it has to happen when it happens, and I get that concept. But what I keep obsessing about is this:

I feel like I need a plan in place specific to my own situation. In other words, what is happening with my site now, and what I need to do to bring it up to the next level, etc.
First do this, then do that, and then do that.

I need to make sure that I am working on what needs to be worked on because I have 46 posts and my site hasn't ranked so there has to be an issue why. I've been at this on and off for about a year, and have made $7.00.

So, in order to reach my goals, I feel like I need to have a basic plan in place to make sure I am going in the right direction. I could blindly be working on my site and maybe it will never rank because I am doing something wrong that I don't know about.
Know what I mean?

For the past 26 years I have worked as a Team Sales Rep selling athletic equipment to schools and youth groups. I am constantly asked about ideas for fundraising and with the cost going up it is imperative that these groups fund raise. I have numerous contacts within this group. My idea has 2 phases and the first is to create a discount card with local merchants within the community offering discounts to the people that purchase the card. The card will sell for 20.00 dollars with the group getting at least 50%. The second phase is the best part, on the card will be access and a code to the groups personal website that will pay them a commission for the year on purchases made from different companies they shop with. I have an IT guy building the site now I just need more direction on dealing with the different Affiliate programs.

Hi Eddy, I was just reading your blog. It's great to see a success story on here that's got some truth to it instead of all that get rich fast hype. Im just interested in making a decent living for myself and someday become financially secure. Currently Im disabled and nothing but time on my hands. I've been looking for ways to make money. My accident occurred at work January 15th of this year and the walls are already closing in on me. I'm very interested in this opportunity being this is my second time with WA.

Hello Eddy...it's good to meet you! Your profile is rather impressive and quite motivating to say the least. Eddy, my challenge is really my limited computer skills which now are merely basic, but I make do with them.
I would ask you if you would be willing to be a mentor to me as I am not pleased at this point of my online training. I would most certainly appreciate you networking with me on some specific matters as they come up. I of course engage with he Community chat as well, but some matters require more personal and direct engagement with a tried and true professional like you.
I would be most grateful hearing from you in this regard.

I clicked and read your sales page, and I said, "I want a sales page like that!" How can I create a sales page like that; that is interactive? Is that a leadpages sales page?

As you can predict i am in little bad financial situation at this moment so i just want to ask you do the links really work? I am from Macedonia i don't know if that was the problem because i have tried vivantic .com but there were no surveys. You know if i can make even 5$ per day it would be very helpful.

Thank you for your help and time,

Hey Martino,

I cover a lot of things on my blog. Anything I personally recommend does work. But it may not be available in your country or right for you. I would recommend focusing on what you're learning here. There is no such thing as fast money. Everything will require time and effort to see results.

When I run into people that are in immediate financial need, I always recommend getting a job first. Then working on things like this on the side until you can get them to a point where they can help you.
Reply
Hey Eddy,

I checked many of the links and all of them were for US and UK citizens so if there are some surveys that work in my region if by chance you end up seeing some send it to me if possible.

Yes that is exactly why i thought that surveys will come handy at this time until i can start generating money from WA.

Anyway thank you for your advice and time :)

Ah Eddy, I don't know if I agree with your bio when you say you're a "regular dude", and the reason is that you have an ultra positive mind-set that makes you something special.

I found you through a link to a Post that your wrote, "Are you terrified of writing?". I'm not afraid of writing but like to glean helpful tips to hopefully be the best me I can be, so wanted to read it, and very much enjoyed it!

Now I'm going to have to read your other posts and check out your web pad (where you hang out right?). Seriously though, it's a pleasure to meet you and I'm looking forward to more positive energy and interaction that I've already become accustomed to here at WA.

Thanks for sharing of your experiences through this journey to a successful online business, it is encouraging to all of us newbies that are just scratching the surface!

Hi Sipho,

The first thing you need to know is there is no rushing this process or making money online. Going through the training swiftly won't make you money any faster. This will all take time to build a successful business online. So expect to be at this for months before seeing any results. It's a real business not a get rich scheme. So my advice is to take your time and go through the training. You can read my cheat sheet as well here:

Hi Eddy,

Loved reading your profile. I hope that I can be able to say the same thing in the near future and say the heck with the Corporate world and work full time from home! Although at least I do feel like I am doing some good with my job as I help other veterans and there is no greater feeling. But then again, I can always help them start their own work from home business via WA! :)

I hope to get to know you better and maybe you can give me some pointers on how you got where you are! I'm all ears for whatever advice you can give. If you are open to ever helping me with anything one on one, I would love that as I am so new to all this and while I am learning so much from the training, there are just days were I am like "UGH"! Everyone here is so great to answer questions, but it would be nice if I could have a mentor to go to on occasion as more one on one.

Hope you have a great new year and here is to much success here at WA!

Best wishes,

Wow!! Your story is truly inspiring!! I have been at the make money online thing since 2014 and I'm not stopping until I have the freedom I desire where I can tell my wife she doesn't have to work anymore.

I think a lot of people miss the part about not quitting. It takes a while to learn the skills you need in order to be successful. Not to mention all the opportunities that you can be distracted by.

Seeing that you started in the early 90s and didn't make a full time living until 2008 spoke volumes to me. Reading your story gave me even more fuel to keep at it!! Thanks for sharing!!

Indeed Byron. The not quitting part is key. But too many people give up on this when they don’t see results right away. So long term delayed gratification is important.

Hi, Eddy,

Thanks for the inspiring intro to yourself, Eddy. For those members just getting started, it can be hard to see the forest for the trees. There is so much on WA, it can be overwhelming, but I've realized that sticking to the step-by-step training is certainly the best course of action for us newbies. I do, however, give myself time once in a awhile to just explore and skip around WA, including skipping through some lessons just to get an idea of what's forthcoming. I then go back and complete all tasks.

I think one of the biggest differences or focus of WA on online marketing is content. Most other programs or trainings I've been through (or watched a webinar or few about) either put more emphasis on paid advertising, squeeze pages, email lists and mailings, with little discussion on Google rankings. The WA approach does make a ton of sense. The only drawback for me (a very impatient person who wants to know and do everything at once and NOW) is it is obviously going to take longer to develop the business before I can really start earning some decent income from it. I anticipate once that happens, the biz will continue to grow exponentially. So, I'm plodding away as patiently as my personality allows me. Thanks for being an ambassador, for the WA Training Cheatsheet, and all your other trainings and things that you do for us on WA.

Ninah,

I couldn't agree with you more about your assessment of WA's focus. You need a lot of delayed gratification to make this business work the way WA teaches. But I have found that what WA teaches lasts the test of time vs some of the other methods which can change so quickly.

I've been following it for 10 years and it still works very well. So that says a lot in my eyes.

Your profile compelled me to connect with you so you might effuse the WA-community willing souls to support and push me and my junior site - www.ebettercare.com into its designated orbit of successful E-Marketing circle.

Besides, would you mind of taking a look at my post on "On WA after my first one month" in , and see if you may add something further so to reinforce the keys for succeeding in online business, especially for the newbies.

Now, I await your support to further what I should do for my site.

It is wonderful to meet someone so succesful in such a short time in WA like you.

Best to health and success,


James

Hi Christian,
I'm glad to hear you feel inspired. But there wasn't anything magical I did or clicked. I basically followed what WA teaches.
I know everyone thinks there is some magic step or advice, but there really isn't.

I've pretty much laid out what I do here: So feel free to read that. I hope it helps you.

To learn the fastest you need to learn from the best, so I am starting with the ambassadors. I hope to learn from your positive mindset.

Eddy, I am really excited to create my new website! I have a lot of ideas I want to incorporate in my cite that I think will attract visitors. I know that for the best chance of success I need to upgrade to the premium, but I am not comfortable throwing in the money if it is going to be a year before I turn a profit. I know that I am capable of making a great website, but I just wanted to know what kind of time frame I am looking at for when I am going to start making my money back and even turn a profit. -Toby

Toby,

Read this: Ultimately, this is a business. You will succeed or fail. That is the reality. There are no guarantees, that's why it's called a business not a job. Millions of people invest in a college education with no guarantee that they will get a job after graduating. But yet so many people feel it's worth the investment in themselves, even if they won't see the rewards in this for a few years. You need to have a long term mentality about this to succeed. If you're looking for immediate results or a definite time frame, then this isn't for you. It may not be what you want to hear. But that's the reality of starting a business and making that investment in one.

Hey Eddy,

I just wanted to run my niche idea by you.

My idea is reporting important events that the United States government would have interest in that happen in Africa. This is my area of study and expertise and I research report on all the different countries in Africa every day. No my reports are mostly in my own word, but I find my information through online resources such as news sites and other blogs and local new agencies in the countries. I write about one-two sentences explaining the main idea of the event or article that related to national security, then I have anywhere from two-five bullet points further explaining, giving facts and statistics. However, every Friday, and maybe more frequently as time moves on, I publish an analysis piece based on some developing story, event or ongoing relations between countries, giving the why and how and who to all the questions regarding the event. Is this a good Idea? I guess my main question is, would this limit my rank on google if I somewhat summarize the stories already publish on other sites?

Also, my main goal is to provide a simplified version of news in Africa so people can quickly scroll to the country they want to learn about and find out quickly, by reading the short summary, if they are interested in learning more, provided the link to the original article. I also give credit to the actual writer, publisher and website it was originated from.

Thanks for the help!

Very good, hope to reach your status soon. Just started the training yesterday, I am a rookie on this. Probably, not probably; I will be asking many questions. I thought that I was just going to advertise products from affiliated Sponsors and get a commission when some one bought something and that was it. Now I see is a new ball game and have to really study hard and learn, learn and learn, then applied it. I want to upgrade, but I feel I don't know anything on this business yet.

Hey Eddy

Thanks so much for your help man and yes this niche thing seems a bit tricky, I actually had a couple of personal ideas and ones I found through research

Im sure I can't move on till I get this hammered down first

First of all I'm a freelance artist with several yrs. experience and anything art/crafts related I'm fully interested in so I would love to base my site off that but I have no idea what to call it or how to create something that stands out or that hasn't been done already several times over and even better

And just to give other ideas, I also have a interest in video games, movies, tv series, comics, Star Wars, the unknown/mysteries, National Geographic, history, mythology, fantasy, anything retro toys/cartoons/movies, and wrestling

And I'll add I have a deep passion and heart for disabled military veterans/service members, homeless, children hospitals, cancer patients, charity/fundraisers

Hope that gives a clear idea of my aim and you could help me
Thanks Glenn

I want to ask you about keywords.
I did the alphabet soup trick with Google and found some low-hanging fruit. I think. I found: BBQ ideas for vegetarians. While I ran that thru Jaaxy I found: Healthy dinner ideas for vegetarians.
Question - can I use one page to kill two keywords?
Another example: BBQ recipes for camping--and--good recipes for camping.

As I write this question to you, I think it is coming to me...write two pages due to the need for content....Duh. Your thoughts?

In terms of being lost, I recently wrote something that should help you through that. So read the following before doing anything else: It seems to have cleared up a lot for newbies like yourself.

I have a few websites. But my main one is the one that brought you here which is www.WorkAtHomeNoScams.com I only started experimenting with other sites now because I'm pretty established with my current site in terms of writing new content regularly, making money and ranking in google. So now I'm able to try another site which has been doing pretty well. But I always tell newbies master one first then you can think about another later on.

In any event, let me know if that article helped you.

What I know so far is, I am not the seller type. I do want to be of service to people, recommending what I know I could do so for my own Family and of course if otherwise it helps me also financially, I will be glad.
I am not going to upgrade for the moment, because my reality is, I have to earn the money before I can spend it! But as soon as I see how it works on the long term I will upgrade. So I hope you have as much patience as I do have.
Sincerely.

EddySalomon Premium
Yeah, I'm not a sales person either. I just provide people with good information via my blog posts, make recommendations I believe in. And folks sign up, then that's great. If not, I still helped people and they'll remember that. In terms of going premium and when you do it, that's totally up to you. Most people do it because they see it as a long term investment in themselves. Where they invest now and will see the fruits of that later. It's the same reasons people will pay for college now with the hopes it will pay off many times over when they get out for years to come. It's the same concept, but a fraction of the cost. But not everyone sees it like that or can afford to make that premium investment initially so I totally get it. At the end of the day you're in control and have to do what's best for you. I discuss why people shouldn't go premium here:

So the best I can figure is that I am not entitled to the additional training without paying, correct? the first series of training basically shows you how to do a web site, which I have a degree in, therefore, I don't need help putting together a web site. I still do not completely understand how you make money just from having a web site. (I have had one for years and have not made money at it-I do not have ads on my site). I have yet been giving information that encourages me to spend money to make money. If ads are the only way, then it is definitely not worth spending the money. I can see where the information provide would be useful to people with NO web experience, but you have not convinced me to spend the money.

If I am missing something, please let me know. I have spent many hours listening and reading your "training" and at this point, feel like I have wasted my time.

Hi Robin,

Yes if you want more training and support you need to upgrade to premium. I don't know if you completed the starter training but the make money part was explained in the second lesson: But as the training mentioned you're making money by writing content and adding affiliate links to your content. The premium lessons go into more details about the making money here: The starter membership is only meant to give you an overview of this business. Then it's up to you to run with it on your own if you don't want to invest in the premium. Some members are able to do this and make money. So just do whatever is comfortable for you.
Reply
I'm new to finding out how and where to build a website I do believe if you are already a website holder and have not made money you're not going about it the right way. I mean no disrespect so please don't be offended. Have you tried Google Adsense? They allow you to place their ads on your website and pay per click so no one HAS to buy anything in order for you to get paid. I'm not going to pay for premium just yet but maybe in the near future.

Tracy, I'm confused by your comment. I obviously have websites that are making money.

Again I'm sorry thankfully that was my first mistake now it's out of the way haha.......

Hello Eddy with a y. I have completed first task on the starter program. I watched the Get Started Video. I have a question, If I cannot afford to go premium after my 7 day trial end, in the starter program, is it possible to make money, if you are a fast learner? and can I use that money, I make from the starter program of having access to 2 free website to pay the premium with the money I make?
Reply
EddySalomon Premium
Hi Roslyn,

Read the following: which may help you.

I've heard that some people are able to make money just using the basic starter training but it's not common since most people need the additional training and support that premium provides.

It's not really about being a fast learner, it's about being able to apply what you learn then it can take months for Google to trust your site enough to rank it and thus eventually make money. So it's a long term focus. This is a business so there isn't any speeding it up. It's going to take time to see the fruits of your labor. So you have to view this as a marathon not sprint to make this work.

Feel free to reply to me at your profile: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/roslynj41 where I left you messages. That's the best place to discuss your questions and situation.

Thanks

Thanks again Eddy. I have read Can't afford the premium membership at WA as well Top 3 reasons you shouldn't go premium. The article had some valid points, One of them is to downsized cable. I have downsized cable in fact I haven't had cable for three years. I have downsized on various of things, and I cannot sell anything else, my apartment is almost empty, as well I have a child take care of. Money does not knock on my door steps. That is why I asked the question. I found this affiliate program to be very interesting above the ones I've researched. I was asking, in options on what I can do to afford the program. Considering in reference to the articles you sent me, does not really apply to me. Is there another way, and considering 7 days is all that is provided, and considering it does take time to build a business, why not give people more than 7 days to build the foundation to get to the premium. Technically like any business, you have to pay rent for it, and time is given for business owners who start out to pay the rent.

Hey Roslyn,

I don't make the policies for WA. The starter membership is really just to give people a taste of what this business entails. Like I said some people are able to run with that basic starter information and figure out everything on their own over time. I can't speak to that since I've always been premium. The article I sent you about affording premiu covered more than just cutting down bills or selling stuff. I also mentioned mturk as a way to help. But ultimately as I mentioned in the other article if you're not in a position to afford the premium, that's fine. Maybe it's something you explore later when you can. Or just try to run with the starter information as others have done. You have to do what's best for your situation and it sounds like going premium isn't in the cards right now and that's fine. Try to work with what you learned in the starter.

It's actually Eddy with a y like it's spelled right near my name.
I don't have any get rich quick schemes I can provide you. Anything that is going to make you real money online takes time. Be very mindful you don't fall for the garbage out there that claims otherwise. I've seen a lot of folks in desperate situations fall for it and end up getting scammed or losing money.

There is no short cuts to making money online. I'm sorry I can't give you any other advice. I always tell people in situations like yours, there best bet is to try to land an offline job as they work on building their business. Because jobs are the only thing i know can give you money in a short period of time.

Ok you definitely need to work on your business using a real computer. So that's the first thing. It will become more difficult to manage using a smart phone. Updating and adding plugins will not do anything to your phone. It's not like your installing apps to your phone. You're updating your site and it's server not the devices you're using to access your site. The same applies if you were making these updates via a computer.
