About Grt007
Joined April 2009
My name is Geoff and I aim to learn affiliate marketing learning from and particpating with the Wealth Affiliate community.

I live with my life partner Julie in one of the most desirable places in Australia at Noosa Heads in Queensland.

My journey into affiliate marketing began about 2008-2009 when the GFC started to kick in. After more than 30 years working with a major global mining company, I entered into the small business arena in 2005. I bought a photocopying business and over the initial eight years turned it into a graphic design and printing business. Things were going great until the GFC started to kick in. As the business has gobbled up my savings I needed to find something extra (do not get me wrong, the business is still operating but not generating sufficient revenues to return my investments with interest.) So I began exploring internet marketing.

I am now past retirement age but have no intention or do I want to take that road. My dream is to continue developing my graphic design and print business and sell it within the next 12 months (any buyers!) and have the expertise and knowledge to grow my affiliate marketing business.

“IT IS NOT A DREAM, IT IS AN ACHIEVABLE GOAL!”

Over the last 3-7 years I have looked into a number of training programs and also have come across a lot of scamy get rich schemes. In my honest opinion there are only a very few that are worth the money and time investment required. I believe Wealthy Affiliate to be in the top three.

My goal is to build a comfortable life style that will give me more time to spend with my gorgeous partner. Being able to play golf again and more time for travelling, boating and fishing.

I join this community on the path to success in affiliate marketing.
Cheers,
Geoff

Update May 2018

Well I did not sell the business but have closed the shop and am now doing it all from home. Fortunately we have a house with enough room for the office and all the equipment downstairs. Whilst still doing a lot of printing and graphic design I am now also developing my local business SEO capability taking inspiration from @magistudios (Jay) training in January 2018 SEO Process for 2018 https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/jays-seo-process-for-2018/play and his series on Local SEO that followed.

Have not done a lot with WA for a while and am now reviewing it all and virtually starting again.

Geoff, you are right it is a nice neck of the woods. We had good friends at Doonan so did visit a bit. We lived in Bentley, near Kyogle, Casino and Lismore. But the weather became too hot! Now we are down in southern Tasmania, another nice neck of the woods. Oh there are so many in Australian.

I had a look at your site. You should put in some images of the products you produce. After all a picture saves a thousand words. (And that's enough cliches for the moment!)

By the way try not to align your images on the left side of the pages or posts. Google doesn't like this.

Keep in touch.

Hello Geoff and welcome to wealthy affiliate.
There's lots of help here within WA for Newbies and not so newbies.

As you probably know or will find out soon enough that internet marketing is a steep learning curve. Can I suggest you browse some of the 200+ blogs I have published within WA.
I'm sure you will go away with lots of tips and advice.
Thank you for the follow as well and I will follow you.
Remember, you get stuck creating your site or anything else, you ask ok.
Enjoy your day.
Robert

Hello Geoff, ♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ 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
