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". ; )

Thanks so much Larry. I actually do not do training but design sites for clients. I want to stress that whenever I say that, it is not self promotion. I do love the "job" itself but there are too many variables with clients. They are nice but since there are too many adaptations and ways to perceive things, it is never cut and dry and I like more specific ways to spend my time and earn $$ so affiliate marketing it is!!! Thanks for the wishes and hope to talk more soon.

Loved your visual law of attraction site, it's realy visually attracting website :)

Greetings Gloria!
Looks like we joined-up about the same time, almost to the day!
I enjoyed reading your profile; I'm impressed to hear about your success with websites, and I'm curious about a number of things, right off the bat. In fact, I'd love to ask you about a few things in regard to your own experience with a web-based business, at some point soon

I'm a busy freelance writer; I've been at this game for more than two decades now. Now, I'm here____ and, though still writing daily____ I'm ready to try something new. WA has offered the thing I've been seeking for quite some time; a "real deal" learning program.
These folks really seem to care -- that's terrific, and should prove to bring in plenty of new members, even if for THAT reason alone!
I feel that the program offered at WA will help me develop the skills I'll need, in order to find success in building websites, generating traffic, building networks, and affiliate marketing.

Speaking of networks, I'm glad to have you in mine!
Moreover, I'm pleased to meet you, happy to know you, and honored to follow you... likewise, I wish to thank you for following me!

Please feel free to check out my profile page,whenever you get a chance. I'm trying to update it every few weeks, as news develops.
I like to keep things fresh, too.
I'll be in touch with you soon....

Your new friend and WA colleague,

Hey Eric,

Yes I remember following on the very first days here. Nice to meet you too.

I think your insights are great and I would be happy to talk with you about web design. I don't do any coding so can't really converse about that. It is too tedious for my "easily bored" mind. You may PM me with any questions.

I don't want to get out of it-just want to supplement it with something that I have more control over on week to week basis. Who knows tho' right?

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Have a great weekend.

Oh gee that is nice to say but I am fortunate to even have had anything "bought". I fell into it when interior design became a "luxury" overnight with the economic mess and feel really blessed. I believe that it was all to lead me to making my own sites and to be here at WA. I think like that.

So busy getting my sites up and looking forward to exploring more sites and blogs here along with working with comments and feedback.

Thanks to you too and wishing you much success here!

It takes time to build a successful online business, too many people expect to become rich overnight. If it was that easy, everyone would be doing it.

Thank you! I have been researching affiliate marketing for years but just now got the time to be able to jump in so very satisfied with WA so far. Yes knowing some web design, (even it if is not coding), has been helpful but still going through every training so I don't miss anything crucial.
Best of luck to you too!
Reply
JustBob Premium
These days design skill is more important than coding skill. I don't address that fact in my most recent blog "Techies -- Some Useful? Advice", but there are many workarounds to overcome the "coding problem." There is no substitute for a well planned layout. Yes, that can be outsourced but it is very tricky communicating what you want done.

I read your profile and lots of people just hear "MLM" and worry. Nothing could be farther from the truth as MLM just provides tiered commissions, but indeed WA is the nicest "place" I have found, although it is one level of recurring commissions.

Thank you Marcus. Yes I am on Lesson 2 of Course 1. I already got a free site up on Rubix, but my others are at Hostgator. Seriously considering just moving them over when I upgrade in a couple of days. That article about Hostgator and shared hosting etc . . did not get to it yet but was intrigued as is was in the background of one of Kyles tutorials. I like the idea of the simplicity of having all the sites here anyway so it is a good thing they are not really "done" yet, LOL. Almost all are WordPress and I have my own themes to upload. The one that is Joomla I was going to make into a WP site anyway so it is all eerily falling into place, Feels so "meant to be".

So thanks again for offering help but not stuck yet. Actually I did try to get a blog post into FB page by the Like button, but it never sent and the button did not turn grey. When I pasted the link in to the post, it did work but my profile pick got entered as well and is pixelated. It was not that large in dimension in the first place, but I just did it to satisfy the requirement of the sharing. I am having a good time and feel energized and enthused!

Have a good night and talk soon.

Marcus WFHW Premium
This is all great to hear, Glo!

Yep, there's a lot of sense in keeping everything under one roof here at WA. I think it's truly scary when you consider how unstable and unsafe these hosting plans are with the likes of HG. I've had my fair share of issues with them in the past (even on dedicated servers), so the extra security here at WA makes it a no brainer.

Regarding your profile pic, if you make sure the dimensions are absolutely square ( 500 x 500 etc), the quality of the image will be better on your profile pic.

Great hearing from you, Glo, keep up the excellent work!

Cheers,

Marcus

It is really cool, that you choose the difficult working field of web-design. as web-developer I am building applications, database structures, membership areas and more. You are right, some customers are simply challenging. They want it all, for no price, and they like to have all extras of the big pages but are not willing to give the right counterpart for it. thats fine, after a while you figure out fast who to say yes to or no :D

If you like to share some stories I am here and have some of my own :D

Oh my Gosh. For real. The worst are the slow payers. I had to restructure it all in phases and getting pre-paid or else I would not meet bills. I still like it but want it to be my side job now, and going to take care of myself with control of my own work, (my sites) for a change.

I don't code, but cannot imagine what a coder goes through with changes and edits. ; (

Hey Gloria!

It’s Marcus here from Work From Home Watchdog.

All the best for now :-)

Marcus
Owner & Founder of Work From Home Watchdog

PS - Please don't be afraid to ask questions, no matter how simple you think they might seem. I felt that way when I first joined and it maybe prevented me from getting up and running quicker than I did. I am here to help with ANYTHING so just ask away :-)

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

Thanks again and talk soon.
