About GingerRatsep
Joined November 2013
I'm originally from New Jersey, but now live in New York.

I've been married to my wonderful, supportive husband for 24.5 years. We met while skiing in Jackson Hole, WY, but luckily he lived somewhat close to me in NY. Go figure, I had to travel from NY to WY to meet the love of my life.

We have a beautiful, talented daughter who is finishing her sophomore year at college. She is artistic, musical and recently has found a passion for photography. I admire her talents and wish that just some of them would rub off on me.

We are all heavily involved in skiing. My husband is a ski school manager and my daughter and I are part-time instructors. I coach the same group of kids all season and really enjoy watching the "aha" moments they go through and the progress they make during the season.

I'm also a Shaklee distributor which has really launched me into the health and wellness arena. I love researching and sharing information about nutrition and alternative healthcare options. I've taken classes in homeopathy, aromatherapy, Bach Flowers, Quantum Touch and Reiki. I have used these and a variety of alternative healthcare options including chiropractic, kinesiology, cranial sacral, acupuncture and NAET as successful treatment options for myself and my family.

I promote health and wellness products offline and want to learn how to bring my business online so I can reach a broader audience.

I am looking forward to working with Wealthy Affiliate and to having the opportunity to welcome and work with new members who see the possibilities that affiliate marketing holds in store for them.

Hi Kary, Thanks for the follow. Hope you are enjoying your journey here. I've been a little off track the past week, lots of unexpected family stuff. Hope to get back into the swing by the end of the weekend. Where do you ski?

Hi Ginger! I see you are a skier too. We also joined WA a few days apart. Look forward to seeing you around.

Hi, I'm just a little slow on my responses at time. Skiing has been a major part of my life since I met my husband 30 years ago. We've both been teaching for about 20 years, our daughter for 4 years. It really is a family thing. I love it when people have their ahaa moments and hope I can do the same thing with WA. Hope you are progressing through the programming and that all is going well. - Ginger

Hi Jenn! Sorry for the delayed response. I finally got my domain transferred for my niche market but want to finnish up my WA site first before I tackle a second site. I will post when Be Your Healthy Best is ready to roll out. In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns I might be able to help you with, please feel free to PM me.

Thanks..... the domain has still not been transferred. They haven't been able to figure out how to do it so I offered to contact the registrar myself. Waiting to hear back.

The domain is finally here. Can't believe it took them 2 weeks to figure out how to redirect it. Now to start building it out.

Please visit my site on organic makeup, Please feel free to leave a comment there. Would love to get your intake on it. I just started a Facebook page, I am a little concerned on the cost of it. I am sure I could learn from you. I hope to network on face book as well as at WA. Have a wonderful day.

Your site is looking great. I just went back and read a few more articles. Can you be an affiliate for some of the products, (like the mineral foundation you use)? You didn't mention the foundation by name in your article and probably should even if you're not an affiliate of there's.

You have a lot of great information to share and including your affiliate product links within the content would help. One of the community members said that we should use a cloaking link for the affiliate links to help Google like us better. There is a plugin on WP, "Pretty Link" that you can get for free to help you with those kinds of links.

Also get the plugin so that your articles can be shared on FB. I used "Super Socializer". This enables people to share your content on their social media sites. When you get that set up, let me know and I'll share on my "Be Your Healthy Best" FB page as well as my regular page. I'll post to Twitter too.

One last suggestion. All of the product pages you link to that take you off your site should open in a new tab.

Talking about FB, personal and fan pages don't cost anything. It's only when you get into setting up a shop or advertising that you run into costs. I'm scratching the surface with my FB fan page. Some people say you should put up posts that are funny, endearing (cute animal pictures), motivational. I really haven't gone that route so much. Do post some "giggles for the day.... laugh for the health of it". In watching what I post on my personal page, I do notice that the informative stuff doesn't get as much attention as the funny cute stuff. I'm hoping my fan page will attract like minded people who will appreciate the content.

Hope you have a wonderful day and I look forward to sharing and learning together with you. - Ginger

Did you go to my site "How to Succeed at Affiliate Marketing" or "The Affluent Affiliate"? Kenwhite23 is the owner of The Affluent Affiliate and someone I would recommend following and connecting with as he has done an awesome job.

If it was my site you visited, I certainly appreciate your feedback. It's a work in progress. I did refer to Ken's site and Kyle's during the build mode. It really helped to have a pattern to follow.

I'm just learning all this stuff to, but if I can be of any help, please feel free to "private message" me or post here.

Take one step at a time and you will get where you're going. - Ginger

Thanks for the FB like. I appreciate your doing that. Be Your Healthy Best will also be the name of my niche site. I'm in the process of getting the domain name changed to the WA servers, hopefully I can get it up and running in the next couple of weeks.

Weather here should be in the 70s (finally it's spring)..... time to plant the garden. YEAH!!!

Hi GingerRatsep, I really liked your site. The video is great. I like that type of approach when it's short and direct. Kind of leads to a squeeze page to get emails. What kind of products do you sell. Might be something else I or others I know would be interested? Obviously I'm busy with my site and some other projects, but if you want to give me the nuts and bolts of it. Maybe i can squeeze it in or recommend it to others. Cheers, Todd

Hi Todd, Right now I am working on getting my site up to promote WA. My niche site beyourhealthybest.com is in works. I have to move my domain from another server then start building it out and start going through my affiliate options. I'll be sharing health and wellness research and supporting products. I'll post the link in my profile when it's ready for prime time. Thanks for the offer to recommend to others if it is a fit.

Hey Ginger, boy oh boy...I am relating with a lot you've said. I almost hate sending you another post to look at but you've got the right idea. I call it the "Grocery Store Method". You don't go there to buy everything, just what you can use right? Nuf said ~ Don't stress, enjoy.

You are such a fantastic individual! I'm glad to have been able to read a little bit about your life. I think you're very talented and I think its really cool that you are interested and practice things such as acupuncture and other alternative health care remedies. Good luck on your journey of success :)

GingerRatsep Premium
Thank you for your lovely comment. You're too kind. I dabble in a lot of different areas with the hopes of being able to share information to help people through health issues without having to resort to invasive procedures or drugs. It's so hard to get folks to understand that there are alternatives to healthcare that work, they just need to investigate and be open to learning about them.

Hi Ginger, thanks for the follow. You met in Jackson Hole, it's such a beautiful place. I visited there for the first time last year armed with my camera, and had a fabulous time around the Tetons and Yellowstone.

I am absolutely stuck on accessing and setting up my new domain. I purchased it through namecheap and followed the instructions to transfer it to WA. I went into Websites & Hostings, clicked on the Domains tab and entered the new domain. I went through the instructions to access the domain through FileZilla (FTP thingy). I am stumped as to what to do next.

According to the info on my site's holding page, I'm supposed to be able to access my Control Panel through WA. Can't find any current information on how to do that.

Do you have any suggestions or can you point me in the right direction?

Thanks
Ginger
