About Gerryturner1
Joined June 2014
Hello,
My name is Gerry and I first joined WA back in 2014, and I guess, like a lot of other people I was very excited about what I had stumbled across. But, and I bet, like a great many other people, because I had stumbled on WA I had no real plan or even an idea about what it was I wanted to do.
Since then I have spent a lot of time searching, but not really knowing what it was I was searching for. Like many people I kind of knew I wanted an "on line business", whatever that might be. I kept coming back to the notion that in order to have a business you need to have product/s or a service to "sell" which I didn't have, and so I kept going round in circles. However, some 3 years later here I am, back at WA but this time with a very clear idea of where I am going, and, with the back- up of WA, how I am going to get there.
Looking forward to the ride.

Thanks for reading.
Gerry

Thanks. It all makes a lot more sense this time, and I find that when I get stuck (which I do) I am able to work through the problem, whereas a couple of years ago I just felt overwhelmed. Now I know the answers to all the questions are there somewhere, it's just a matter of asking the right question. If a total NON TECHIE like me can crack this I know I am going to be able to encourage a lot of others to follow suit.

Hi Tania and Al. Thanks for the follow back and the offer of help. Appreciate both. especially from folks who have achieved with WA
The dogs are called Monty, he's nearly 11 and Ruger who is 4. Great companions. They even help me with my WA venture. Cos when I get stuck, which I often do, I take them for a walk, clear my head and think about why I am doing what I am doing and what I want to achieve and I come back to my studies refreshed.

See you around this great community. Have a great day
Gerry

Thanks Adrian, I am certainly enjoying the WA experience more the second time around.First time here I think I expected too much too soon, now I am taking it one step at a time (interspersed with many backward steps!) so my immediate expectations are lower but I have more confidence for the longer term.

Hello Gerry,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made 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 on the right (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hello Loes. Thank you for the message. I had noticed that you have added a lot of training and are wiling to help people, which is why I "followed" you. It is fantastic the way people are prepared to help others within this community.
I am only just getting started and I have put the outline of a website together and am now going to continue with the training to try and move that forward.

Have a great day.

Hello Gerry and a belated welcome to wealthy affiliate.
You have probably found out internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
Can I suggest you browse some of the 200+ blogs I have published within WA.
Thank you for the follow as well and I will follow you.
Remember, if you get stuck you ask ok.
Enjoy your day.

Hi again Gerry 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.
Enjoy your day.

HI, Thanks for the good wishes. I think, possibly like many others, that I did not fully appreciate the full potential of what is available with WA. This time I am making more use of community help and am determined to follow the training step by step and see where it takes me. I really do struggle wit the "techie" side of things but, hey, I am reasonably intelligent so why shouldn't I get through it!

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my websites. My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live a month ago and the one on sleep apnea has been up for almost four months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.

Gerry, I saw where you were canceling your membership already. Are you sure you don't want to hang in here for a few months and see what could happen? Two months is not much of a trial.
Reply
gerryturner1 Premium
Hi Thanks for the message and I agree that 2 months is indeed not much of trial - however for me it is as much about a lifestyle choice as anything else. I just do not feel that I am a "computer person" - I know we live in the 21st century and most people feel the need to embrace technology but I feel I prefer fresh air and the time to be out doors.
After 2 months of trying to decide on a niche I still haven't come up with anything I am comfortable with (I do not agree with telling people how great a particular money making website is if I haven't made any money from it - but have spent money on it!- so the WA Affiliate doesn't appeal either)

I know that people are making money on line these days - I just haven't come up with a suitable method of doing it myself.

However I wish good luck and good fortune with your projects.
Gerry

Hi OldMule.
Thanks for the drop by - I really appreciate that.
I am now making progress in as much that I have decided on a domain name, made the purchase,, have set up my website and am now working through training.
I honestly think I would have quit before now had I felt that I was totally alone, but kind people such as yourself, showing an interest and popping in, have made all the difference,
Many thanks

Hi Janice. I have just read your article on the 5 stages of competence for learning a new skill and found it most interesting as I can readily identify with stage 1 and 2. Its reassuring to know that there are sound psychological reasons why I am dithering at this stage, as I was beginning to think I was just an incompetent! I am determined to crack this internet Marketing business however and will push until stage 5 is accomplished.
Would recommend all who are new to this business to have a look at your article to give them some reassurance.
Thanks
Gerry

janicebowles Premium
Thanks Gerry, it's good to know that you have found the article helpful and appreciate the recommendation! I found that once I had understood and accomplished a few of the tasks / stages of learning, the next ones became less daunting, meaning you actually become more comfortable with stages one and two! You will get there and if I can be of help any time please ask.
