About Garydlc
Joined March 2017
My name is Gary De La Cruz, a 52 year old Roman Catholic, self employed, hands on Auto Mechanic living in Cape Town South Africa
(on The Cape Peninsula)

I enjoy many outdoor activities such as:

Camping, Cycling, Golfing, Kayaking, Mountain Hiking,
Motor Cycling (love long rides), Off Road Driving,
Pistol and Combat Shooting
Paintballing, Snorkeling
Scuba Diving,and Travelling.(Road Trips are my Favourite)

I am married for 31 years and have 3 adult children aged, 31, 27 and 19 years old, I play a bit of guitar and am active on our Neighborhood Watch, doing regular patrols.
I consider myself to be family orientated and take great interest in what my children are doing, and who they interact with, I support them in all they do.

I consider myself to have a higher than average work ethic and believe in getting things done as quickly and efficiently as possible. Never leaving what can be done Today, for Tomorrow.

I am searching for an alternative source of income to sustain me in my latter years, something less physically demanding.

I believe that I can succeed with an internet business and am willing to give it my all.
I am not too internet savvy but I am willing to learn all that I can and have to.

I believe that earning an income is just as important as enjoying earning it,
as the old cliche goes

"If you enjoy your work, you will never work a day in your life".

Wealthy Affiliate has become my 2nd home and the WA community like a 2nd family, I look forward to my online Entrepreneurial Future here at WA.

hi, Gary how are you... been awhile ...

think need help x

since I can't turn to anybody still, I got you hahaha
my site is doing Lil bit ok now, just get into jaaxy while ago and seen my rank there at google that I am on rank 58 - I dunno if that sounds good ... and just wondering seeing my rank at Bing and Yahoo I am on rank Number 1 - that's kinda weird ... so to check it out my Bing webmaster tool - (send you this link) - yeah that is what it says the page is blinking-- somehow i cannot get in ...
this already been for a couple of days ... sigh!

am still really pacing slow but heck am not on the competition here ... hahaha

appreciate it ..

Hi Arlene
I am not sure that I understand your question, but it sounds like you are locked out of your Bing webmaster Tool, and that there were too many attempts to authenticate your website in Bing.

If this is the case, I see that you mention it is going on for a few days already, so it seems that it will not sort itself out,

I suggest that you try the Bing help and support, maybe there is a solution in their FAQ section,

I have not experienced this kind of problem yet, so I cannot rightfully tell you what went wrong.

Keep me posted with results, I will do some research on my side.

Awesome job Gary and I just found my problem. I see what you did you built off of a lifetime of experience and knowledge that you accumulated through work. Easy enough. And my problem will be finding a niche that I know enough about to draw traffic. One that people want to know something about. I am not an expert at anything. But enough negativity that is not going to get me anywhere. I'm going to stay positive . I'm going to go ahead and go all the way I'm going to have to give plasma in order to even go premium that's just how bad things are for me right now. But thank you so much for the encouragement at least I see that it really can actually be done. And this is not a scam. Thank you Gary and I will be following you and keeping in touch to see how you're doing. Congratulations on your success.

Hi, liked your work ethic post - similar to how I am, am a kind of guy who is a jack of all trades! You won't know if you can do something unless you try. Have done most of my own plumbing, electrical, building, car repair - just got done doing brakes!

Have always felt that if you apply yourself, you will succeed. If you make a mistake, just make sure you don't make the same mistake again!

garydlc Premium
Hi James
Thanks for the follow back, in my opinion, anything is marketable, all depends on the marketeer and their strategy,

The best way to start a free marketing campaign is to research the product thoroughly, then do a review of the product and post results on as many social media sites as possible,

Email campaigns can also reach a broad audience, depending on your email database.

The other alternatives will start to cost.

I hope this helps, All the best

Hi Gary, Yeah a name is for personal identity. For the fact that our real names are not our choice, some youngsters just do not like their given names.
Sometimes people protect their identities in the interest of their security, as I did after deserting the army.
I find out that most of the time people shorten their names to make it simple for others as we speak different languages. :)

Congrats on your success so far. Based on your interest I though i'd throw out a niche idea. Survivalist. There is alot of high commission products in that space. Content is fun to write and good content or videos tents to get shared around.

Hello Mathew

Thank you for the follow and the advise on the niche idea, I am an old school dude, who likes to finish what he starts and want to build my current website into a well oil internet marketing machine,
then copy that success with other niches I have in mind, I have been a business person for many years and learnt that the internet is not so much different a place to do business than the actual world out there,

just more convenient, but a few basic principles remain the same, so I have a lot to learn about the internet affiliate marketing business and implement into my current strategy.

I find it all here at WA,
I am following you now and All the best in going forward Mathew.

Gary, 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 Gary.

Thank you for inviting me to follow, Gary! Your positive, active life beats most of what I've seen! Deep down (from my youth on the southernmost tip of Norway) I recognize the value(s) of your paths, though I must admit that my life became more abstract, if that is the word - have bicycled all across Europe, though, hiking and sleeping outdoors. At home, as you do, we live in the middle of Nature.

Looking at your profile, I see knowledge and proficiency - and Health, which cannot be without inner strength. I found WA the same way you did - there is no place like it. Your success here is a sure bet, as you know how to put in work. Your site is good and well written. As to me, I'm here to stay, learn and interact, along with other activities - traveling light. Let's talk more along the road!

All the best!

Hello Gary,♫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.

Hi again Gary it’s a good idea (only if you want to) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.
Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing but.
But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.

Thank you for following me Gary I like your energy. You are definately someone I want to have in my corner when starting an online business. Just wanted to share a little aside because I Think it is cute and it shows how close the internet can actually bring people together. One of my most recent business ventures is breeding Pomeranians because I am an animal lover and I know it will be a labour of love. I live in a northern community in Saskatchewan Canada and the little man I just bought for my business has South African parents who were brought over with their owners when they moved to our country. Thanks for the encouragement and wishing you the best.

Welcome to Premium membership and to Wealthy Affiliate, Gary! You’ve made a smart choice! I’m sure you’ve already discovered what a fantastic place this is to learn web design and internet marketing. Pay attention to those that have been around a while and you’ll learn a lot! Ask questions, dive into the courses and video classes and try to make the weekly webinar on Friday evenings.

Please don’t hesitate to ask if you need any help. If I can be of assistance in any way, just let me know. If I don’t know the answer, I’ll find someone who does!

Wishing you the best of success!
Mike

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! :)

Hi, thank you for the support, yeah the last 10 or so hours were hard in the sense that I could not decide on a niche,
so I am following my best instinct and sticking with what I know and have 30+ years experience with "Motor Vehicle Maintenance and Repair",
I know it is a broad spectrum but it has so much potential for expansion, what do you think?

Good day to you Gary, my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. I suggest you learn the basics to online marketing first. In the Get Started Here section [top left green box] you will learn how to select a niche, build a niche website, and learn keyword research. All else is built around these three principles.
I look forward to working with you and wish you much success and prosperity in building your online empire.
Ken

Gary, if you don't mind me saying, I feel that your background is as an auto mechanic possesses great niche' potential. Guys like me rely on the internet for instruction to work on our own cars. On top of that, you have all of these other interests. Wow, you are going to do great!.
