About Familyman82
Joined March 2014
My name is Jason I am a single father and have recently been laid off from my job as a factory worker. I have been wanting for years to be able to support me and my son at the same time still being able to have time with him. Although now being laid off I have that time with him I am struggling even more so than before to support us. I am aware that I am not going to wake up in the morning and be rich from doing this but I do hope 1 day to accomplish my dream of working from home and being able to have some what of financial freedom.

1. do you have another job or this only?

2. about when did you become self supportive for you and family?

3. That example I gave about google being the search engine, was not their inquiry but the two men that sort of head this WA platform, asking what was stopping me from joining the ranks at WA yet; it was google that was used to do this survey for the guys.

Hi Jason,
I had a very good letter from you, under private, and cannot navigate and find it again!! It was where I asked why you need more competition in terms of more added WA affiliates. You provided a good amount of ideas as to why more people might be useful.
1, But, are you my "mentor"?
2. Do you receive compensations in spending time with my questions and ultimate success?
3. In terms of Google, I asked if there's any other search engines (i.e., duckduckgo com) that I can use instead of google. It seems that even a survey I took relating to WA was google operated.
I do know Google is a big part of the authoritarian censoring of America etc. One or two folks, at WA had been complaining about something as silly as "Wealth Affiliate" being censored, blocked and affected by their control grid algorithms and google.

I would call myself a mentor but I'm here to help anyone that needs it.

I do not get anything for helping you or anyone else other than my own satisfaction of knowing I was able to help out in the same way that so many did for me when I started out.

As far as Google operated surveys, that is a UX (user experience) thing that Google does for there own reasons. Usually because they are wanting to keep there search results as relevant as possible.(Or so they say)
if you have the Google tag manager extension for chrome you will see Google surveys as an option you can include.

if you don't want your site in Google search you can choose to have it omitted and still include it in others like Bing or duckduckgo.

just understand that you will be seriously limiting your site exposure.

now for censorship.
Yes WA and pretty much anywhere else online can choose to censor you if you don't play by their rules.
WA tends not to do this unless you are spamming, using hateful language or just being all around nasty to people.

Those same people you are talking about have more than likely violated policies of the places that are censoring there "Wealthy Affiliate" related content.

I have never known Wealthy Affiliate to be censored anywhere online and I have been with them for the better part of 5 years now.

Not sure if I answered everything you wanted but I will try again if you let me know what you still have questions about.

And you could even pay me for it if want... LOL

No really, I don't mind helping out even if I'm not getting paid for it

Hi Jason
It seems that until I upgrade to Premium I cant read your message. I have a message from Kyle too but I cant open that either. It will probably be the new year before I upgrade so it looks like radio silence til then.
Oh Ive just noticed that Ive got another 7 days to upgrade at a discount.
I hope you receive this message.
I dont think you could have received my previous ones asking about the bigger picture.
My intention now is to carry on with the courses as far as I can go . Maybe even set up 2 websites. I'll see how it goes. I'll keep you posted if I can.
Give me a thumbs up or sometnig if you receive this (or a thumbs down if you dont ha ha).
All the best

Hi Familyman82! Do you have a shorter name? Not sure how I got here but pretty sure it's the path I'm meant to be on. I've had a shit 2018. Left an emotionally abusive marriage in Dec 17 with my 3 boys in tow. Was working part time for same friend for nearly 20 years. She killed herself in June. So I find myself a single parent, unemployed and down one very good friend! I started researching setting up an online coaching business to help women trapped in emotionally abusive relationships but had no idea how to start. I kept stumbling upon affiliate marketing and am hoping to learn skills to set up a website initially to feed my kids but ultimately to help others. Am I being unrealistic?
Cheers

Hi family man,
You must be the guy who wrote the review on SFM.
Thanks for that.
I was feeling that their promises were all too vague, but I was seriously considering what they had to offer.
Anyway,
There's no need for me to knock them. That was then and this is now.
I haven't even looked at the training yet.
I've just been going through the blurb really.
I'll give you a shout when Ive gone through lesson 1.
Kindest Regards
Gren Cartwright.

Hey bud,
Sorry about the delay but I had a small end of world situation going on over here so I had my hands full.

Anywho...

What you are seeing is a feature of Jaaxy that allows you to search and buy domains for keywords you have entered.

Works out great for building small pop up affiliate sites to promote the next big thing to hit the market.

i.e. iphones, fitbit, things that you see a commercial for on TV and then turn around and everyone and their brother rushed out to get one.

It's just there to show you domain availability and if you so choose it's there to help you buy it.

Hey! I'm great, I hope you are as well. I'm brand brand new to the whole online marketing thing and making money online, but I've realized recently that it's a massive industry and that i'd love to do what I can to be a part of it. I'm definitely interested in more information on learning more about it, which is why I signed up up for this haha. I'd love any advice you might have for me. Best regards!

Hey there Jason, I want to thank you for helping me to get started with WA. I'm just starting to take advantage of the information and training that is available here, and if I had listened to your first message several years ago then I would be a lot further along SMH. But I really do want to say thank you and to let you know that I'm making progress. I went from a rank of about 43000 to 18500 in about a day, just by getting involved and progressing through the training. I have to keep moving forward though.

Hi Jason,

thanks for following me and for the motivating words. i've got a question though.

you have been a member since 2014, what are your experiences in making money through WA. when i ask the opinion of several people in my friends and family circle and they think it will take very long and be very difficult to earn enough money to make a living. Basically not having the confidence this method of making money will get you anywhere. how was this for you?

also a other thing does it make a difference that i live in the Netherlands to target my audience or does this not matter.

i hope to get a honest answer.

Kris

I wont lie to you that this is not a get rich quick kind of thing that you are use to seeing all over the internet and probably in your inbox.

It is a more of a marathon than a race.

depending on your target audience i.e. niche it could take closer to 9 10 months before you begin seeing a steady stream of income. Well enough to be considered income.

Probably get your first sale or 2 after about 3 or 4 months but it won't be nothing to write home about.

It does greatly depend on how competitive the niche you are wanting to enter is.

However I have known quite a few folks that enter into a less competitive niche and start making decent commissions within 3 months.

There are a lot of factors to consider when trying to answer a question like this so I HONESTLY can not give you the straight forward answer that I know you are wanting.

I did not understand this either when I first started out and was actually quite mad because, like you are going to feel after reading this, I thought I was getting the run around.

So I will just answer it this way!

If you are looking for a quick way to make cash online you are going to have to shell out a whole lot more money than you are going to bring in for the first probably 4-5 months.

Again Depends ON The NICHE.

You are not going to wake up one morning and see a bunch of zeros in any of your affiliate accounts no matter what niche or program you use.

That kind of this just does not happen! That's no JOKE!

With all that said Wealthy Affiliate can and will teach you how to get to your desired income outcome.

They will show you how to do this in a way that you will not have to worry with loosing your business over night because Google changed their algorithm or had an update to their ranking factors.

It will take some time months more so than years and hard work.

More importantly it will take sacrifice and determination.

Not a problem that you live in the Netherlands unless the Netherlands have some sort of laws pertaining to generating online incomes.

My personal experience was 9 months and some change before I began earning what I considered a decent income.

This was in the make money online niche (MMO) which is in the top 3 as far as being one of the most difficult to have success in.

Hope this helps you decide but ultimately you are the only one that knows what you are really capable of and can answer honestly if you are willing to put in the time, work and sacrifice to become successful and profitable.

Good luck with your decision making and don't rush into anything that you don't feel comfortably with.

If you would like to know anything else at all just ask.

Jason, thanks for you honest answer. Now i have an idea in time frames what to expect. im actually glad that you gave me a meaningful answer and not just false hopes and promises :)

To be honest i do not mind having to put time and effort in something that i can benefit (even if its a year). I think one will get more satisfaction and appreciation once they work hard for it instead of getting it handed over on a silver plater.

also the quick quick rich schemes ("janitor ears now $2.500 per week by this simple trick")

i say if its to good to be true... it probably is.

I hope all is going very well for you and your online business, i hope you earning a good profit from the point that you are at the moment.

thanks again and we keep in touch!

Kris

You are very welcome and I agree wholeheartedly that not only are there too many people having things handed over on a"Silver Platter" but one gets much more of a sense of accomplishment when they actually have to put in the work to build something from scratch.

If you ever have anymore questions feel free to ask.

I just realized you are probably the one instrumental in my joining Wealthy Affiliates. I'm not even at 24 hours in yet, but my gratitude overflows. Your praise of WA made me come over and join, and now I see that it is even better than you said.
Also, I need to ask for a little help. I am thinking my first website should be used to promote WA, but I am having a lot of resistance to going through the website setup lesson. I sent off a message to Kyle, asking him what he thought about the idea, and he has not answered yet. Now I find myself using that as an excuse to wait before beginning the lesson. What do you think?
Reply
Familyman82 Premium
I think I already answered this else where but I'm happy to do it again, just in case.

For me starting out I found it easier to build my first site around promoting WA. It was a way for me to basically learn what to write so I could get better at it as I went.

It just made it easier to be able to speak from experience in which helped me learn how to construct my posts and reviews for different target audiences.

The one major thing I learned from it was just to write as if you were sending a letter to an old friend that you have not seen in a while.

I am pretty sure everyone here had to get over the same speed bump when they were first starting. How to write content!

I think that if you are very good at one particular thing or have a burning passion for one hobby or another that you should go for what you love.

This way it's never really like work and you will never get bored of it.

Hope this helped,
Jason

Hey Jason, I have a question for you if you've got a minute. I think there may be a discontinued site that used my url. When I type my url into google, the home title and description of another site come up, but when I click on it I am taken to my site. My site manager says my site is not indexed by google. Do you know how I can resolve this?

Familyman82 Premium
Chris,
If you get the hosting for your site from WA then submit this question to the WA support team.

If not than contact your hosting company and relay your concerns to them.

Was it a site that you used to own and someone else purchased that same url after you no longer had claim to it.

or..

Does the new site have your same content from when you owned it.

It can take the search engines a little time to adjust.

All and all contact your hosting provider. That would be where I would start

How nice to hear from someone straight away from my joining. I am sure you will be successful and enjoy life with your son. Being laid off work maybe the best thing that has happened to you, or at least it will be. Good luck with your endeavours. Where are you in the world?

Hi there, just wondering what would be a realistic time frame to start seeing a profit on a website. I know this depends on a lot of things but just as a starter, if i were to set up a website with a couple of pages using keywords and add adsense and maybe an amazon affiliate link how long would it take? would be a major boost to see an actual profit. Thanks in advance.
