About GregKononenk
Joined March 2019
I'm a 39-year ex-DJ who loves guitar and quit his high-paying executive job to pursue internet marketing... Was scary for my wife and daughter but it all worked out :)

Hi, my name is Greg Kononenko, I'm a full-time blogger and YouTuber from Sydney, Australia. I'm looking forward to sharing Wealthy Affiliate information with my followers, helping as many people as I can, and learning from all the folks here.

I was "dabbling" with internet marketing from 2006 to 2014, on and off. As my corporate financial career went uphill, so did my work hours. I found myself stressed, working 60 hour weeks and not seeing any future in my corporate career.

That's when I decided to pull the plug and disconnect from The Matrix (the corporate work).

Fast forward 5 years, I have a successful, growing YouTube channel with 26,500 subscribers, email list of 25,000, 4 niche websites, and 2 recurring software products.

This "internet thing" can really work!

I look forward to connecting with everyone here inside Wealthy Affiliate, and to see all of us growing more successful together.

Let me know if I can help in any way, always happy to help fellow marketers.

Hey Greg.... I just wanted to tell you thanks for giving me the opportunity to check W.A. out. I am so grateful to find out about this awesome platform. You will always stand head and shoulders above the crowd to me for that. Most people online would have kept chasing clicks. They put out video that appeals to the ones who are struggling to make it through the month. They promise they have the best sollution to help you out of the struggle. Then, they offer it to you with a price tag that is more than the average family makes in a month. You chose to educate your followers instead. You will get alot more than money back for your kindness and compassion and willingness to pass it on. I appreciate all the great content you have been feeding the masses lately. Some of us have been starving for something real. Thanks for sharing

Hi Greg, I'm writing this message to report an issue that I encountered and do not quite know how to approach it but here it goes: I had someone on the WA platform who is following me just now and so I checked out who it was and I read and saw her profile photo and she is not dressed appropriately and is exposing parts of her body that I found indecent. I'm concerned about this and just wanted to touch basis with you to see if that is allowed on this platform. She is a dancer and I think a porn star is her profession according to her profile. So I just needed to report this and see if that sort of thing is allowed here--her photo.

Hi Greg,

Loving the training so far. I just watched the Niche Video and was wondering your thoughts about sub niches within my website that take people to different landing pages where I offer some value in exchange for their email addresses, and then promote a product within?

For Example I had already started a website on web dot com in the manifestation niche. There are several topics under that niche I'd like to explore/talk about such as: spirituality, mental health, physical body/health which includes beauty/makeup/anti-aging, manifesting other dreams such a financial/travel/relationships, products. Or maybe choosing a few to get started with?

Am I biting off more than I could chew?? LOL

:D

Hi Damaris, no, you're actually on the right track :)

The whole point of online marketing is to build an email list.

When I was a beginner, I didn't "get it" as much as I do now.

If you think about it, noone wants to go to a salesy page to be sold stuff. So that's why things like product reviews or sales pages don't go viral and can't get a ton of search traffic.

However you can create tons of valuable content and it can get a lot of traffic from search engines on multiple topics.

Then, you "trap" say 3-5% of that traffic into your email list - and then you can market to them forever and ever.

Of course, it's nice to get a sale by someone just clicking a direct affiliate link somewhere on your site. But really, most of my sales come from my email list, I mean over 80%.

I think that in the manifestation niche, you can tackle most of the topics you're thinking about. I am not super-familiar with the niche myself, but I think they're all related to manifestation.

There are a couple of great offers on Clickbank in the manifestation niche. Just promote those and any similar ones you find.

You can reverse-engineer other's sites as well. I'm going to drop you an email with my YouTube video on it.

See you around!

You are the bestest of the bestest!! Thanks for the vote of confidence that I am on the right track :)

Got your email as well and replying that I LOVE that video you sent. In fact - I think that is the one that attracted me to your channel. I've been an avid fan ever since!!

Going to go back over it again!

Cheers!!

I didn't even realize that I have been on your blog before. I just signed up for your free traffic course and followed you on Youtube. I have been marketing online since 2003 and got to the point of firing the boss before I had a nervous breakdown a few years back. I am back to blog based affiliate marketing but lost a ton of ground, a ton of consistency, and need to find my catalyst to putting things back on track. Between Kyle, Carson, and You, I hope to find the exact support I have been lacking.

Hi and congratulations on going premium with WA. It's a wise decision.

Your best bet from here is to follow all of the 5 course, 50 lesson Online Entrepreneur Certification training.

But the really important step is to apply what you're learning WHILE YOU'RE LEARNING IT.

I can't emphasize this enough.

Not only will it make the training stick, but in no time at all you'll have your first WA website up and running.

Google ranking and monetization will follow inevitably.

If you're stuck any time, just post a question.

One of us at WA will answer it and you'll be off again.

It's a journey and you've just taken your first and best step.

I wish you all the best.

Phil
