About Ericcantu
Joined January 2017
Travel addict. Photography addict. Vigilante.

Ok maybe not so much on the vigilante part, but I still want to travel the world!

I've been a south Texas firefighter for the last 15 years and lately I feel like I've unlocked this whole new world by traveling. In the last few months I've gone to Tokyo, Greece, Australia, and Thailand!

[Update: With Thailand I started a travel blog on YouTube! Search "Batman Travels" under YouTube channels and subscribe!]

There are so many beautiful places on this earth to visit that you could spend an entire lifetime trying to visit them all and never come close to finishing.

I want to travel to as many places as I can and share my experiences and adventures through photography and storytelling and the common denominator I've found from those who have achieved this dream is that their office is able to go with them wherever they travel.

Wealthy Affiliate is where I've gotten my training to do just that. I hope you'll follow and come along for the ride and share your own journey as well. I'm always looking for inspiration.

I'm also Batman so there's that.

Hey, Eric, could you give us your input/feedback on the following domain names? We had a list of like 60 some, and have narrowed it down to these, but having trouble picking the best one. Let us know what you think; we'd like to purchase one today, thanks, Eric!

What are the names?

I tend to like the top one: affiliate marketing pros. It's simple, direct, to the point, rolls off the tongue. That'd be my choice personally.

Bummer! I just checked again, and that one plus the "experts" one say "available" on GoDaddy, BUT I would have to buy them for like $2,000! I just didn't look far enough...so....back to the drawing board. I really like the "affiliatemarketing" part, but don't know what else to put with it. :(

So you're buying these domains on godaddy? Why not buy them here? It's cheaper here overall.

Thanks for following me...! You're an ambassador already? How did that happen so fast...?! I've been on this site for 4 months and haven't earned any $$ yet so I am just writing post after post and now working on a coupon site. Difficult to be positive about this, but the support here is amazing and I know it's possible so I just keep going. You?

If you were running a traditional business you wouldn't be approaching the profit zone for atleast the first year. You wouldn't bat an eye at this. You'd continue to work, knowing that with time your efforts would be rewarded. Online business is no different. As long as you are following every step of the training and creating quality content, with time you'll start to build that traffic. And traffic is the only thing that will bring you consistent revenue. So don't feel that it's hard to stay positive just 4 months in. Think of everything you've learned. Take a look at your growing site. These are things to be positive about! Thank you for the kind words. I appreciate it!

Man I wish I knew... That was taken on a quick cruise I took in Thessaloniki, Greece. I had a beer in my hand and was taking in all the sights, lol.

Thanks for the support, brother. I appreciate all the kind words.

Hello Batman, errr.... I mean, Eric!

What a great bio! I resonate with everything you write! My reason for chasing an online-working existence is also to be able to travel frequently and be location-independent!

I see you've visited my homeland Greece already :)
Greetings from Thailand where I've been living for the past 2 years!

Good luck with your journeys, literally and metaphorically in the online world too.
And yes - too many beautiful places in this world, too little time!

Hello Nicky! How are you? Thanks for checking out my bio. Yes I absolutely love traveling and just got back from Thailand a few days ago. It was incredible! I was in Bangkok and Phuket. Island hopping was beautiful and I loved every bit of it!

Hi Eric, I cannot find a clear answer to this question in the discussions. Kyle has not replied my PM - I sent to him because I think this involves "policy" and I need an authoritative answer. So I try to turn to you: Can I build a website for my daughter and host the site (domain) at WA (of course also using SiteRubix). The domain is registered under my name (so, it's actually mine) but I want to build a website for my daughter so she can maybe earn some income etc ... I would probably be updating the site for her as well. Is it allowed for me to build and host a website for a family member here at WA? Thanks or your time. btw, I am a premium member

Hey Pete, I appreciate you coming to me with your question. If you have a website or business in your name that you update and control, what you do with the profits you make from that is completely up to you. Let's say you wanted to give all your revenue to charity, or in this case, give it to your daughter, that's totally up to you.

Later if she wanted to become an active contributor and decided she wanted to learn the training as well with her own membership she could of course do that as well. For now, building a website here on WA for your daughter shouldn't be an issue.

Hello Eric,♫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

WOW what an awesome future. You have the opportunity to travel all over the world and what makes it all the sweeter is the fact you can still plug in wherever there is an internet connection and maybe some powerful WIFI.

You are an inspiration to me as I am on my journey to success with WA.

Eric, 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 Eric.

Kyle you're the man. I'm absolutely enjoying the process. I'm looking forward to my first few posts which should be coming soon. I really like the style of outlining the direction of the blog and creating a scalable platform. One quick question, and I may be jumping ahead of myself, so forgive me if I am, but i noticed this as I'm completing my first three pages, that in the edit page area it shows an SEO title and description area by each page and these are blank. Is this simply a space where we can change each page's SEO info from its default? Or is this a space we need to pay attention to and fill out for each page and post we create?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yes, leave those blank. Those will be handled for you automatically by the All in One SEO plugin, you only have to set that up initially and then from there on out these will be pulled naturally (and properly) from your actual content.
