About Halinasophie
Joined March 2018
Hi! My name is Halina and I live in Bendigo, Australia. I am a single mum with a beautiful 6 month old son, Spencer. For quite a while now (a few years in fact) I've been interested in the idea of Affiliate marketing but found it too overwhelming and had no idea where to start! Although I'm pretty decent at figuring things out online - this all seemed so daunting! But you just have to start, right? In a year from now I'd wished I had (or so the saying goes)....I've travelled a lot, had many different "careers" in my life and I'm a Creative and Professional Writing student at university. None of this has given me the satisfaction or income I really want or need. Now as a single mother, I want more for myself and my son and I wan't to do it in a way that allows me to spend time with him and work from home. I have had some health challenges which I have overcome through diet and lifestyle and I'd love to help others with similar challenges. I love writing, cooking, eating well, yoga, travel just to name a few. I really feel as if I'm in the right place here and am nothing short of amazed at the love and support from this community. I'm looking forward to the journey ahead!

Hello Halina and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep up with the training and keep referring to it but if you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 400+ blogs I have published within WA.

You can always get in touch with me as well.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.
Robert

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hi Amanuel,

Thank you for your inspiring message! I am looking forward to going through all the training and learning as much as I can. No business plan as of yet, good advice though! I'm finding it all a bit overwhelming at the moment as I'm sure many new members do - perhaps business plan advice is covered in the training? I'm not really well versed on the business planning side of things...

Anyway, I'm sure it will sort itself out if I just keep taking action as it is said. Thanks again for your message!

Cheers
Halina

Hi Halina,

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! Great to have you on board :)

You'll probably experience a bit of information overload in the first few days. There is a lot of training and resources in here.

I suggest you start with the Online Entrepreneur Certification: If you would ever get stuck, let me know. I'm here to help!

Cheers,
Ronnie

Hi Halina, awesome to hear that! Yeah for most members it's like a breath of fresh air when they join WA. Check out the training and hope to see you inside Premium soon...all the content and training will unlock for you and you'll gain access to the whole community, which is very supportive and helpful ;)

Hi Ronnie, I'm not sure if this question was posted on the forum as when I tried to post it is said "Oops! Only Premium members are allowed to include links in comments" and didn't seem to upload.. my question is about location. I'm Australian I'm just wondering about . com as opposed to . com . au? Also if I sign up to premium will I be charged in US dollars? It works out to be quite a bit more expensive if so. So I guess I want to know if this training beneficial to those in other countries, or best undertaken by patrons of the US/Canada? Thank you! Just before I go any further I want to make sure I can establish this from "down under"
Cheers

Thank you.

Hi Halina,

Great question!

We have members from all over the world and many from Australia ;) This is a global business and you can work it from anywhere...I'm based in Prague, Czech republic for example.

The choice between com and au domains really depends if you want to target a global audience or Australia only. It will make more sense for you once you get to the training on niches inside Premium ;)

And finally...yeah the billing for Premium is in USD only I'm afraid. I understand it is a bit more expensive for you, but I think once you upgrade, you'll not regret it as there is so much value in there ;)

See you inside Premium soon!

Great! Thank you for your prompt response.

It's so great to know that the support is there - I know you must be inundated with questions.. so thanks a million.

Yes once I have navigated through the training I will take a look at going premium

Cheers!

Hi Ronnie,

I apologise for all the questions here but I'm just trying to do the research and make the right decision before I invest in this project.

I love that this community is so supportive and I'm really impressed that you take the time to answer questions - you're obviously very busy and have many people to respond to! I'm having a bit of a hard time sifting through all the "training" that's available out there and to be honest feeling completely overwhelmed by it. Perhaps you can give your honest opinion to me? There is obviously a lot of information out there that helps you build an online business on your own, without paying a membership for the facilities.... for example, a while ago I purchased a course for $99 that give you step-by-step instructions on how to build an online business hosting your own Wordpress site and gives you the lowdown on affiliate marketing, and all that goes with it (I just found it daunting to do on my own), there's Marie Forleo's B-school, There's countless eBooks out there with similar info, I understand that with a membership you have the great ongoing training and support available to you, but what makes this stand out from the others? I'm a single Mum, and after rent, bills, car etc...$ 65 AUD (approx.) per month may hurt a little bit! Not that I don't thinks it's reasonable, I absolutely do (especially after nearly signing up to SFM).

Also, can you cancel at any time, and if so do you lose all the work you've put in? (Not that I would expect to if it is working for me)

Thanks a million

Hi Ronnie, I just realised that you're not the founder of WA! I'm sorry to inundate you with questions... I will forward this message to Kyle or Carson. Thank you for responding to my queries!

Hello Halina,

Haha no worries...I'm happy to answer any questions. I'm not the founder but I'm doing affiliate marketing full time and I know Kyle and Carson personally (see my Vegas post) :)

First of all, here is a quick summary of what you get with Premium:

=> Full training materials (More than 50 lessons of core training)

=> Hosting for up to 50 websites (Which can easily cost up to a hundred bucks or more per month if you host 50 websites somewhere else!)

=> FREE SSL Certificate for all your websites (This is usually an add-on service which can cost up to a few hundred bucks per year)

=> Access to Jaaxy Keyword Research Tool (Your future best business buddy!)

=> Private access to the owners of Wealthy Affiliate, Kyle & Carson (I've never seen this anywhere else)

=> 24/7/365 Website Technical Support & many more!

Sure, there are many other training programmes out there (and I have personally spend over $25,000 on those). So far WA is the best value I have found...

The community is amazing...so many full time affiliate marketers that are at your disposal 24/7 and eager to support and help...

I think you still have access to a promotion to upgrade with a discount for a first month. Try it out, see if you like it...you can always cancel after the first month if you decide this is not for you ;)

Hope this helps!

Cheers,
Ronnie
