About Elisa507
Joined May 2016
Hello friends. Here Elisa from a little village in Holland. I’m married since 9 years to the love of my life and we have a 5 year old son.

Having my own web shop has always been a dream of mine and many times I have been on the edge of starting one. But what kept me from doing that was the investment (mainly the stock and package material that I would have to buy). Also lack of knowledge was in my way. I had no experience and no one to show me.

Somewhere around 2009 I made a website about being (and how to get) happy and I placed some affiliate links by the side. The website was visited well and I made just a few bucks with the affiliate links. That website was never about the earnings, I just wanted to get my word out.

End of 2010 I set up a local news website and I sold advertisement space to local companies. I enjoyed the designing of the ads. I loved doing the copywriting for the company presentations and also the SEO aspect was a juicy thing. In fact I loved doing the marketing and coming up with all kinds of juicy campaigns for promoting the website.
However there was also something about it that I hated… going to the companies and trying to talk the owners into buying an ad from me. Aaaarrrggggg… On days that I had to visit companies I would not feel good, first thing in the morning and that feeling would stay till after the visit was done.
One day I decided that it was enough with the suffering and I sold the website for a mild price.

I went back to my old profession, dog grooming. And I found a few side jobs to have some steady income. These days our income is okay, we can nicely get around from it.
But the dream of having my own web shop keeps haunting me. I just bought a course on how to set up your own web shop and was considering drop shipping as I ran into WA.

Nowwww… this is a great opportunity. This is like having my own web shop without having to invest in having stock. Now, here I find all the course material that I can dream of. And a whole community of people who love to help me (and I love to help them).

I started a website about dog grooming as that is something that I know a lot about. And you know what?! I now learn even more about dog grooming! It is so juicy to find a great keyword and then dive all the way into that topic. Since it is a great keyword it is always something that people are interested in a lot and then I discover so many details about that little aspect of dog grooming. I love it. It makes me a better groomer even!

My experience as a copywriter is of great service. My education in designing helps me greatly. My husband is a great photographer, providing me with tons of useful pictures. My passion for marketing finds a way out here.
All pieces of the puzzle fit together now. I am at my place here. Thank you WA !!!

Hoi Elisa, LEUK:)! ♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made 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. It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right under training (click on my picture). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

Elisa507 Premium
Thanks a lot Loes. There are sure some usefull topics there. To start with the 'checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post'. That is where I am at now, writing posts.
Also am looking into branding as that might be a good thing to work with from the start. I am a graphic designer also, so I know a few things about that already. That helps.

Right now also am a bit deep into how to get Amazon going. As I write the posts I want to add some products there.

Wanna see my Dutch website? www.trimsalonerica.nl (Elisa is my online name, always been. Elisabeth is my official name. Erica my roepnaam. Radha my Indian name, hehe)

Nee, mijn trimsalon site heb ik vorig jaar gemaakt. Toen kende ik WA nog niet. Ik denk dat het ongeveer 2001 was toen ik mijn eerste site maakte (ging over de World Peace Flame). Later deed ik eens een Google Sniper cursus en leerde dat Google gek is op Wordpress. Sindsdien maak ik al mijn sites in Wordpress. Niet dat ik er zo ontzettend veel gemaakt heb hoor. Het is nog wel te telllen op de vingers van 1 hand denk ik :)

It's great to be here. Nice to meet another dog lover. Years ago I faced the choice of I wanted to become a dog obedience trainer or a groomer. I choose to be a groomer so I would be working with dogs and not be training people on how to train dogs. I understand that you really train the dog? Or are you also training people?
Reply
Labman Premium
In this case, I'm training the dog. I have worked with a trainer in the past that teaches beginners with their dogs. In that case, we were training the people. The dogs got it much faster than their two legged counterparts.

Hi, Elisa! Welcome to the premium side of WA! If you think you've learned a lot so far, just wait 'til you get into more certification courses, live video classes and mega classrooms - all with bite-sized info sections with helpful "now-do-this" steps at the end of each to move you forward to success!
If you need anything, just holler! :)

Yezzzz, am loving the overload of information here and am highly enjoying this community. It's like Facebook but we have a passion in common. I love helping others also and will get more into that as my knowledge grows.
Reply
GailKing1 Premium
Just take it a lesson at a time and try to do the "steps" that follow at the end of each lesson and you'll do fine. I know it's very easy to get caught up in info overload, but if you pace yourself: Suggestion: an hour to mill around the community...maybe 1/2 hr. to comment/question/answer/welcome others...then the bulk of your time learning "lesson by lesson" and working on your website/s, you'll do great! :)

I'm about to sign up for premium but would like to know what is the term of notice.
Let's say that every month on the 12th the fee is being collected, on which date would I then have to cancel to prevent the next 47 dollar to be deducted?

You just have to cancel before the recurring date and you won't be charged subsequent months. You are in full control of your membership Elisa.

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! :)
Reply
Elisa507 Premium
I have chosen my first niche already. What made it easy is the thought that my choice doesn't have to be perfect. I'm just getting my feet wet here and if I'm lucky then this is a great niche for me, if not then I'll just choose a different one and I'll have much more basis then to choose from.
My first niche is going to be focused on the maintenance of dog's fur. The knowledge needed for that is mostly with me already.
Reply
PMakaris Premium
Perfect niche Elisa and I honestly can't tell you how badly I need to take care of that with my own dog. If you had a solution for me right now, I would take it. But that is perfect for a niche. Very targeted with a huge target audience and if that's something you have an interest in, then all the better!

Hi and welcome to WA Elisa! I'm Peter and I actually referred you here to WA through my website and thought I'd introduce myself while offering you my help and assistance.

I'm glad to see you've taken the first step to a very profitable and lucrative business. This site has helped me do so much that I wouldn't have been able to do otherwise.. From being able to work on my own time to growing my income month after month, WA has been the way to go!

I hope you're enjoying the community so far and are ready to learn all that there is about affiliate marketing. I'd recommend with the getting started course, which is the big green button on your upper left, or you can feel free to use the link below: The training is going to walk you through step-by-step on how to begin setting up your new website and turn that into a full-time business. You'll have everything you need here to make that happen.

I know you're going to do great here and I can't wait to see how you progress with your new business. If you have any questions or need any help at all, feel free to ask away. Let's start the year strong!

Cheers,
Peter
Reply
Elisa507 Premium
Hey Peter, great to find you here! I was interested in the six figure mentors and your site gave me all the information I needed to not get into that. Thanks for opening my eyes there.
Then I was curious about your recommendation (WA) and kept the link to this site in my notes until I had some time to dive into it. I'm LOVING it so far!

One question, the membership for premium is 47 per month.... How long did it take you to reach an income of 47 per month through WA?
Or how long does it usually take for premium members?
Reply
PMakaris Premium
Awesome.. I'm so glad to hear that Elisa! SFM is definitely not the way to go. I think it took me maybe 2 to 3 months to make my first few sales here at WA, and then a month or two later is when things really started to take off.

But I couldn't tell you exactly how long it takes for most members. Everyone here goes at their own pace. If you were to take action on the training daily, I think you could get there in no time.

It's great because as soon as your website begins to receive more and more traffic, you really don't need to do all that much. My biggest advice is to blog consistently.

I hope that wasn't too long or vague of an answer. But if you have confidence in yourself, your training, and in your content, you're going to do just great.

If you have any other questions Elisa, just let me know!
