About Firstlearn
Joined March 2018
I am Derek, born and raised in the UK. As my picture shows I am no longer a youngster but I am willing to learn as much as I can to improve my financial well being. (Who said you can't teach an old dog new tricks).
Some will say I am passed my use by date but I just ignore them and carry on anyway.
I have been meddling on the internet for some time, but I have always found an excuse for not being successful, or possibly for not following things through to a conclusion. Procrastination plays a big part in this.
I thought it was time to do something useful with the rest of my life, but to do this I also need to earn an income. (A basic state pension is not at all a good one).
I will be happy to hear from other users and also happy to share my life experiences.

Hello Derek!

Thank you for connecting with my. Very pleased to meet you. Of course, I follow you back.

Better late than never, I use to say. See, I joined for more than a year ago and was a totally newbie (still doesn't know much about social media - my very next task to accomplish) and now I have earned my very first commission - a tiny one, but nevertheless I know it works now.

We can all make it happen!
You too!!

Hi Derek, good on you for continuing to live & learn. I agree it's terrible hard to manage on a pension, especially if you don't own your own home and have to rent. So to both of us, success!
The UK has our attention these days, what with a new prince being born and a royal wedding coming up.
Thanks for following me I have followed you back.
Cheers Jae ☺

Good evening, Derek and thanks for adding me to your network. I will add you to mine as well. A big welcome to WA as well.

Your not the only one with a "Procrastination" issue. It has been playing a big part in my journey as well.

However, I'm not giving in yet because I know this can work. There are many successful members here and they all, or mostly, started out with the same skill levels, (that would be none on my part), so, if they can do it so can we.

All the best and I look forward to connecting from time to time. Until then, I am

Moving Forward,
Wayne

Hey Derek....Welcome!

I know you can teach an old dog new tricks.....I'm an old dog too!
One of the best things we have going for us is patience. After you've been around for awhile, you learn Rome wasn't built in a day!
So learn everything you can, ask as many questions as you need to (we're all here to help) and enjoy!

Best wishes for your success,

Hello Derek and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you may have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep up with the training and keep referring to it but if you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 400+ blogs I have published within WA.

You can always get in touch with me as well.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.
Robert

Thank you Derek for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. When first starting your affiliate marketing website many members have problems coming up with niche ideas.

Probably the one main problem is that people tend to over-think the simple process of finding a niche. Just sit back and look around you. You have niches everywhere. You are even wearing different niches.

Though it is important to fully understand that any niche can be profitable, there are certain niche markets that will be more profitable than others. You might think that the market is saturated but there is plenty of room to earn.

The niches in these 2 types of profitable categories (Evergreen and Passions) are plentiful and broad. Like all niches they will need to be narrow and focused. The more they are, the more profitable they become.

I created a tutorial that explains the differences in these two groups and provide you with many niche and sub niche ideas for each category. If you are having problems choosing a niche, click the link below.

Hi Derek and thanks for following me.
It's nice to meet you and welcome to the WA community.
We've found a great place to work out the rest of career.
I just read that 96% of people in the US shop online. We simply need to get in front of a little of that cash flow.
Stay well and have a great afternoon.

Welcome to WA premium membership, you made a wise choice.
I created a training, that may help you organize your learning material here, and outside of Wealthy Affiliate. You can see it here: - hope this lesson will help you make your journey here on WA a little easier, and less overwhelming.

Blessings!

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! :)
