About Glodesigns
Joined July 2015
I am happy to have found WA and looking forward to networking with other members who are like-minded.

My current income is from creating websites, and while this is pretty lucrative, it gets repetitious and some clients can be challenging. What bugs me is the "putting all the eggs in one basket" scenario and I want to start working on some alternatives for income. Can never be too safe or cautious.

My history of how I got to web design was basically due to the economy going crazy. At the time I was in interior design school and looking forward to that career. What happened was that lots of established professionals left the field because interior design became a luxury overnight. No jobs for a "beginner" so I translated my design skills to creating websites. I found lots of help and tutorials and taught myself everything I know. I did it to save myself and my stuff!!! So while it did work, it has been stressful to learn this way.

The tools here at WA will help greatly, being centered here will help to streamline the process of getting up my new sites so looking forward to this.

What I would like to achieve from affiliate marketing is of course helping people to find what they need and improve their lives. Doing this has a great reward for us too, so I plan to build an extensive customer base and steady income.

I look forward to this new adventure every day, gaining an income stream of which I have more control and can definitely "scale up". ; )
Glodesigns's Goals 3
Money Goals
How much money would I be happy earning? Well in my hopes of getting into interior design that was about $75.000 a year. I wanted to go into hospitality, designing hotels and resorts so that was actually probable.
Now 10 years later the cost of living is different and I am older so not as much room for saving for retirement etc. So the goal per year now is more like $100.000.
How much would I be ecstatic earning? $500.000.
How much time am I willing to invest? I am a pretty good writer and I know that quality articles will keep people coming to my site(s) but I also know that new content is equally important for return visitors and new visitors and ranking in search engine results. To start I think I will spend 6 hours a day on several sites finishing getting those together and content posted, and then up to 20 hours a week for maintenance. It will be interesting to see what others think and how far off I am or if I hit the mark as to what is really necessary.

Its difficult to quantify. Hitting the mark between lowest expectations and highest wish is difficult. I think you've hit the button here and I wish you well. I think we just have to work to weekly or even daily routine that will help us reach our targets. Wish you well

Really nice goals, Gloria!

By laying things down in such a practical and logical way you now have something to work towards and something to focus on.

The key to succeeding here at WA is to take action on what you learn from the training and ask questions when you need help.

You've taken the first step so I wish you well on the rest of your journey. If I can help with anything along the way the don't hesitate to drop me a line.

Cheers,

Marcus

It will definitely be daily! I know this job is an actual job and I have been motivating myself already for nearly 6 years in web design done from home so I already got the discipline schedule down. Now it is just getting up the content and scaling up. Writers block bring it on LOL!

I have no idea if your are correct or not in your estimates. I am a true blue beginner, but I totally look forward to seeing your posts. I am already looking forward to them. I enjoy interior design. The years pass so quickly that like you, I have not saved for retirement either. I wish you all the best!

Hey RhondaMae,

Thanks for the nice compliments.

I have been studying the :"concept" of affiliate marketing for a few years. I read a lot of posts on it all over the internet. There are lots of ways to make money over our lives and for me, affiliate marketing satisfies another "need" of mine. I love helping people. So it will be a win-win, no matter how long it takes me to climb the hill.

Having said that I have a pretty good head start, so not that I do not need training but I have already created lots of sites for myself and clients and already am familiar with the concept of multiple sites and scaling up, so that is how I see myself going for it. Considering what I know already it is actually a doable thing.

I am going to upgrade this week and move at least one of my domains to WA and get the site design/content copied over and done and up by the end of next week.

I have not given up on interior design, I just shifted my focus that I know I won't make my "fortune" from it. I am getting a site together to do interior design remotely. Might as well jump on that bandwagon. So on that site I will not only offer the service, but have affiliate ads from furniture stores and such and even sell my own hand made accessories. Lots of irons in the fire but that is how we find out what works best. Trial and error.

What I expect is not to sign up a certain amount each day-not in the beginning. What I propose will happen is that towards Thanksgiving the visitors will have grown so much that a lot of the sign ups will be coming at the end of the goal time. Fingers crossed. ; )

I will check out your sites etc., too and best of luck to you!

Thank you Marcus.

It looks like a "wealth" of information and happy to be here.

As I told Carson I already have some site niches and domains and just need to get the design and content done.

I have been designing sites for clients and ready to do something totally for me.

Thanks again and talk soon.
