About GolfSpecialt
Joined April 2016
I have spent the last 20 plus years of my career working in the non-profit industry. I've committed by professional career to helping others through non-profits. I've decided to start an online affiliate business in order to provide my wife and I with a more comfortable retirement.

I'm building this business around one of my passions. Golf. Golf is a sport that you can play your entire life. My goal through this program is to help newbies get started. To help them sift through the countless products on the market today and to help them become the best golfer they can be. I'd like to connect them to the products they'll need to learn and experience the joy of golf.

Apart from my passion for golf, and helping beginners get started in this great sport, my top priorities are my relationship with God, Christ, and my family.

Hello John ... thank you for the follow. We share a passion for golf ... love the game. Hope to play a lot more in retirement ... hopefully financed to some degree with a supplemental positive cash from skills we are learning here.

The learning curve is pretty steep, but persistent diligence and a lot of patience with a few obstacles that will occur will pay dividends down the road.

I wish you the best on your WA journey.

Generally, by the end of the season, I'm playing to a 14. Winters can be long, and at my age it takes my body a month or two to loosen up to my swing. If I had $25k sitting around I'd buy one of those garage simulators. :-)

Well at the moment John the Black Cats are 3rd from bottom and it will be Sunderland or Newcastle for the drop, what about Leicester winning the Championship that is like me scoring a touch down for the Packers, I love Sunderland the people are very friendly especially to an old Cockney boy like me.

My father in law will be crushed if Sunderland drops. He immigrated to America in 1965 and hasn't lost a step in his love for Sunderland. I bought him a scarf from Sunderland this past July when my wife and I visited her family there.

Hi John some great news , against all the odds Sunderland beat Chelsea 3-2 with Jermain Defoe getting the winner, if Sunderland beat Everton in the mid week game they will relegate Newcastle and Norwich, I went to watch my beloved Fulham play and win 1-0 against Bolton Wanderers on the banks of the river Thames what a great day it was sunshine all the way with 25 topping the scales I take my Son as well nothing better, I have been to both Roker and The Stadium of Light on my Fulham Travels Ihave always enjoyed my trips to Sunderland so good news for the family John.

Thanks for the follow and nice to connect. I appreciate your life objectives and share much of your aspiration - having done 6 years mission work in Tanzania and spending a lot of my spare time in non-profit work also - when not taking care of our 4 kids.

One thin I have learned is that you do need to commit regular time to learn and grow your business - it won't happen on a few hours here and there.

All the best

John, nice to hear from you. I expect that golf will go well as there are so many golf fanatics out there. I have played but never really got hooked. One funny instant was when we were being overtaken by an older men's foursome. We looked back to wave them through but there was no-one is sight. After a visual search we saw all four up a tree (one with those horizontal spreading branches) looking for a golf ball. We never saw them again! Have fun here and keep in touch. )By the way congratulations on getting the 'wife and I' in the right order. So many get it backwards.

Hi,

Thank you for the Follow. Back atcha!

Your niche, golf, is a rabid market, which makes it is an ideal market to be in. You have also narrowed your niche to focus on beginners, which is great, because you can now tailor your language, lead magnets, marketing and products to beginners. This is important because golf is a very competitive market. You win by standing out, by being somebody's expert.

BTW, that's another great benefit of working with beginners...you don't have to be a Tiger Woods to be been seen as an expert. You just have to know more than they do. The old adage is very true, "In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king". The word "expert" scares people. But in your niche - beginning and wannabee golfers - you're already an expert...and a very valuable one, at that!

I love your URL, "the first eighteen dot com". Kinda says it all, doesn't it? I suggest that you come up with a branding slogan and display it very prominently in the header of your site. Something like "The Beginner's Guide to Excellent Golf". Whatever your mission/position is, boiled down to a slogan. Then use that slogan on your site, in your social media, etc. Oh, I just noticed your "Helping you get the ball rolling". If that's your brand slogan, make it big and bold...the first thing they see when they hit your site. It's your "Reason Why" and it's their reason to care (and stay).

Finally, I would get to list building as fast as you can, and to multiple products. Why? Because you are serving a rabid market, which means that they will never stop buying. They will either buy from you, or buy from someone else - your choice - but they will buy repeatedly. Build a tribe, build a relationship and build authority. That strategy has the ability to make you rich.

One more caveat: Sell information products, not just physical products. After all, you're targeting beginners and wannabees, who are not yet golfing, but are interested. And info products pay higher commissions. In fact, I suspect that you could create a beginner's product yourself. Lotsa things you can do with that!

Thanks for the Follow. I wish you well.

John, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything John.

Thanks for the follow up Kyle. Ironically, I was initially putting all my effort into my niche website, but quickly realized that I could be up and running and earning income faster if I started with promoting Wealthy Affiliate. My WA niche there will be to Baby Boomers who are still in the work force but are not prepared to retire. Probably a bit broad as there are close to 56 million of them in the US alone.

Retirement for my generation is a hot topic and one that most of us are completely unprepared for. Lets get all those people signed up with WA and running online businesses.

I'm on lesson 5 of the bootcamp. If I get hung up I'll let you know.
Thanks again. - John
Reply
GolfSpecialt Premium
Actually, I do have a question. In lesson 5 you advise us to post our link on various social sites. That's fine but wouldn't it be better to have a graphic that we post rather that the cumbersome link? I tried to put a banner ad on my WA site but could never get it associated with the link so people could just click on it. That's probably coming in upcoming lessons. I Know, "slow your horses".
Reply

Text links (call to action style) tend to convert better than banner ads.

I have created some training walking you through the process of adding hyperlinks/affiliate links to your website. This will walk you through the process and if you have any further questions about this moving forward, let me know John.

Hello John, Welcome! (◠‿◠✿) Nice to meet you, 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 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. It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right under training (click on my picture). 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

Welcome to WA, John and thank you for following me. This is a good plan for retirement. My dad played golf so much, my parents moved closer to the golf course when he retired and he played until he died. 18 holes - no cart. I wish you much success here. ~Debbi

Thanks - Golf is the perfect sport. It's something that keeps you healthy and you can play your entire life. AND its perfect for my wife because it gets me out of the house and out of her hair for 5 hours. Ha, Ha. Good luck and God bless.
