About GazBower
Joined June 2019
Hello all and thanks for looking at my profile, my friends call me Gaz (hope to make some new friends on here) and I am from Yorkshire in the UK.
I have just turned 61 years young and I am married to Shell (for going on 11 years now).

I left school at 15 and have worked ever since mainly in the Engineering and Manufacturing industries but have also tried sales (not pushy enough) and even been a delivery driver, everything from paint to fish (boring).
As I am heading towards retirement I have decided to take the plunge and try to build an online business. I have been stung a few times so quite cautious for obvious reasons. I am not afraid of having to put in the work but I need to see there is a reward for that work. Also I don't believe there is such a thing as a get rich quick scheme (except the lottery of course)

I am looking into affiliate marketing for the first time and found Wealthy Affiliate purely by chance on You Tube by watching someone who said they were not a member but just reviewing it, so decided to have a look and see what the possibilities are for building a sustainable income between now and retirement in a few years time.

My interests are Photography, Football (Soccer for those of you in the USA), Music and have an ongoing addiction with trying to find the ideal weight loss program.

If you drop by and have read this far please say hello and I am always grateful for any advice that will help me make a success of this journey. I would also like to network with other WA members in the UK.

Thanks Gaz

Hi Gaz,

I think you are going to see that it is rather easy meeting and making new friends on the WA platform. Thanks for the return follow I appreciate all of them: an example of that prior statement

I think as other industries begin to dwindle slightly because of the internet it will also provide many with other alternative ways to produce a sustainable living.

For the sales efforts was it that you were not pushy enough or you were too honest? I found out that many companies will slightly twist the facts to make their product look or seem the better choice.

That was were my dilemma was when I first tried straight out sales many many moons ago. It is also something that attracted me to affiliate marketing and people giving their honest product reviews on all the different products available in today's market place.

If you ever need any help just PM me and I'll see what I can do to help you!!

Living Life Large, Calvin

Hey Gaz. Just dropping by after receiving your words of encouragement on my page. I have a deep love for photography and film as well. I'm from the US, believe it or not I knew what you meant by football at first glance lol. I can't believe I've added someone all the way from the UK to my network. I love the culture. Can't wait to see what else I learn from you. Thanks!

Hello Gaz And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined you will no doubt know by now that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve and there will always be something new to learn.

You must keep referring to the training (it does get updated from time to time).

If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 500+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me a message anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.

Have a great day.
Robert

Welcome to my WA network. When I first came here, I thot I could make money right away, not so. Instead, you need to understand it will probably take you 8 to 12 months to start making money. And that's if you have 30-50 articles written by month 8. Don't get too upset here. Who ever made money in their chosen field while going to school.? I wish someone would have told me this when I started on Feb this year. I would have written more posts. I am way behind, but that's OK. I decided I'll get there in baby steps. One step at a time. Just do the training and don't skip anything. Ask questions when you get stumped.
Best of luck
Linda

Glad that you joined us. 

Wealthy Affiliate is an amazing environment to learn and apply our skills towards creating an online business. I tried to do this alone before and was completely lost. 

Now I know why. 

There are so many tricks of the trade and it saves so much time having it all laid out clearly in its training programs. 

Keep following the training and exercises every day. Give it a year to see significant results. You'll be a happy camper by then. We all make progress at different rates and it is possible to see meaningful results in 4-6 months. Google cannot be rushed. 

Google rewards people with websites that provide value to their visitors. It helps to boost their ad revenue of course! And that helps your websites get high rankings. But it takes time to build credibility. Once they realize your site is an authority site, good things will happen faster. 

When you get stuck, and you will, just ask for help in the discussion area located below each lesson. Scroll down to find it. Another member who has the answer will get back to you promptly. 

In the meantime have fun with the program. Much success to you.

Cheers!

Edwin

Hi Gaz
Thanks for your comment. Great to be connected with someone close by.
I am trying to figure all this out, so much to figure out but very exciting at the same time.
Like you I totally came across WA by chance but my gut has told me to run with it.
Best of luck with it

Hey Gaz,

Welcome to the WA family, I think that you have made a great choice. You now have access to all of the tools, training and fantastic support that will help you on your way.

I just popped over from Donny, to say a massive thank you for including me in your networks, it really is very appreciated. I can now look forward to sharing in, and to contributing to your fantastic journey.

Kind Regards

Hi Adrian,
Thanks for the message.. By Donny I assume that is Doncaster and as it so happens that is where I live.. Small world... Thanks for your encouragement as I am feeling a bit unsure as to how good this opportunity is as I have tried other things over the years and they just end up trying to sell you something that you can't really afford and tell you that you have to go sell it to other people to make a bit of money which invariably ends up being nowhere near what you spent in the first place.... I must admit this on the surface doesn't seem like that... So fingers crossed that this is the real deal... Have you come across many others from the UK as this can sometimes be a problem too as everything is geared to the USA market... Looking forward to having a chat.... Cheers Gaz
