About Garthjen
Joined May 2013
I have been trying to succeed at internet marketing since 2006, without success.
Every product I tried made me more confused as I tried each one.
I finally gave up in 2010.
I just could not believe that when everybody else seemed to be succeeding I could not.
So, although I refused to waste any more time and money I continued to keep looking.
By pure chance I discovered NoMoreBSReviews by Ian Pribyl.
For the first time someone was making sense and of course this lead me to Wealthy Affiliate.
I am 71 years old and do not have a very good pension so I have to supplement my income. Garth

I am retired as well Braden but don't have the luxury of sitting around.
Every minute I can spare goes into WA but in order to survive on a small pension I have to find work.

Would you have a look at my website and tell me if I am on the right track.
I have been here 1 year now and I am getting very little traffic to my site. I only use low QSR keywords.
I also only use the WA keyword tool, because until I make some money I can't afford Jaaxy.
My website is www.theretiredaffiliate.com

Thanks Garth, I can identify with the road that led you to WA.
We sometimes berate ourselves when success seems elusive.

Finding the right platform can make a world of difference. Just like a plant that needs the sun, we often sit in the shadows just praying for that ray of sunshine.

As with anything it takes consistent effort, but you'll find that being with a supportive group of like minded people you can now move in the direction of your goals.

It's a hype free environment with a task based learning platform and you'll get all the support you'll ever need.

As you move forward you'll also be able to share your knowledge and as they say, pay it forward.

Looking forward to following your journey!

Best wishes Russ

Hi Garth, wow I think I could have written your profile as my own. I know exactly what you mean about being scammed and watching others that have had much less knowledge than I did succeed and make all sorts of money. I just could not figure some things out and had no place to go and ask anyone...until I found WA
I'm so glad you finally found a scam free place that can teach you everything you need to know about supplementing your income.

Looking forward to watching you success blossom.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

I wanted to stop by and officially welcome you to WA and ask you if you have any questions about getting started?

We have every tool, training resource, and support channel to help you build a thriving online business and I am personally here to help you succeed.

The "Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1)" course is my suggestion on where to get started and you will find this on your dashboard or within the main menu:
https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1

I hope to get a chance to work with you soon :)

Hey there! I wanted to start you off with a quick note that could SIGNIFICANTLY impact your success with Wealthy Affiliate. Read this entire message if you are serious about being successful in internet marketing (it's lengthy, but I'm not joking when I say that this advice could make or break your entire internet marketing career):


1) You'll need to work consistently and hard. There's going to be a lot to learn in the beginning and you may feel overwhelmed at a point, but keep pressing forward and you'll make it through. It happened to me and every other successful internet marketer at some point, and the only way to become successful in this industry is to push past that overload whenever you get there.


Do yourself a favor and commit to a number of hours that you can work each week right now. It doesn't have to be massive, but it should be more than 10 between evenings and weekends at least. Just remember the more you work each week, the faster you'll learn and draw closer to success.


After you've picked the number of hours you can work each week, commit to working that much for AT LEAST six months - a year would be better. You won't see results immediately in this industry, and being consistent is the key. Pick a number of hours you can work each week, then work those hours for at least six months. It's something you've probably never done in this industry, and this advice alone will make a HUGE difference in your chances at succeeding with internet marketing as long as you take it seriously and STICK WITH IT.


2) I recommend starting off with this training (which you can access with your free account): https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1


It just scratches the surface of the MASSIVE amount of helpful content in WA, but you'll get a good "feel" for the teaching style here and begin to see the power of all of the great things they're teaching here at Wealthy Affiliate.


3) DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE COMMUNITY. Two of the best places you can go to for help when you get stuck are the "Live Chat" and the "Forum" sections located on the panel to your left. You'll find direction and inspiration through the community here, which is one of the reasons I recommend WA so highly.


4) Finally, you don't ever have to upgrade to the premium account here at Wealthy Affiliate if you don't want to. You'll have limited access using your free account for as long as you wish. HOWEVER, if you're serious about internet and affiliate marketing then you should invest in the premium membership for AT LEAST one month. You could look back on it years from now and see it as a pivotal moment in your internet marketing career, but you never will if you don't at least give it a try.


Check it out for a few days though - you don't need to upgrade right now. Make sure it's a good fit for you, and if you upgrade within the first 7 days you'll receive your first month's membership at more than 50% off. I keep my membership active and recurring every month so I can be here for the people I refer like you, so realize that I'm putting my money where my mouth is here!


On top of that, if you upgrade to a premium membership at the discounted rate within the first 7 days I have a special bonus EXCLUSIVE to people that join WA through me and upgrade within the first week of creating their free account. This bonus will show you how to be twice as successful with WA or any other legitimate internet marketing program out there and gives you some very valuable video lessons (which I recorded for you personally, of course) to ensure you get off to the right step in your internet marketing business.


To claim your bonus, post on my WA wall after you've upgraded to a premium membership saying that you purchased within the first seven days. I'll send the bonus your way ASAP.


I don't offer that bonus so you'll spring for the membership and make me more money, I offer the bonus just in case you needed that tiny "push" to make sure you invest in this training because I know that you will use for the rest of your IM career and it could change your life. I've referred hundreds of people now and I have NEVER had anyone tell me they were dissatisfied.


Best of luck to you! You're about to embark on a journey that could change your life forever, so make sure you take it seriously, put in the time and effort, and expect great things in return!


You know where to find me,
Ian Pribyl
