About Intmrktanast
Joined June 2016
Hello

My name is Anastasia and I spend half my year in Sydney, Australia and the other half in Chania, Crete which is in Greece.

I am passionate about everything to do with food, shopping, cooking, eating, entertaining and dining out. My other interests include, travel, watching movies, going to art exhibitions and the theatre and spending time with friends and family.

Recently I have been attempting to make sense of the online / internet marketing world as I am trying to create an additional income stream. There is a lot of information out there that has led me down an interesting albeit expensive path, I have not given up hope in achieving my initial goal of an additional income of $2,000 per month. I am hoping that my journey with Wealthy Affiliate will be more fruitful and lead me to achieving my financial goal for 2016.

I am looking forward to the lessons and challenges ahead!

Warmest regards,
Anastasia

Anastasia, I just commented on your grilled corn salad, and thank goodness lunch is almost ready because my mouth is watering. So you do a six month here, six month in Greece year. Now that's the life. I visited Crete in 1980 (and that surely dates me). We went to most of the archeological sites but did get along the coast from west of Chania to east of Malia.

Funny story is that we stayed in pensions most of the time we were in Greece. In those days, on the islands, you were lucky to get hot water. We went in June and it was quite chilly so our cold showers were taken quickly. When we reached Malia we found a pension that actually had plenty of hot water. That day we went to the beach for a while. During that time the wind changed direction and came from the Sahara. The temperature rose drastically, we hit every drink venue on the way back to the pension and had a 'cold' shower.

Just our luck. We did have a great time in Greece.

I have a couple of feedback items for you. Your presentation is great so there is one you really should do and the second to do if you like.

1. On the Salads page you need to get rid of the Just another WordPress site. It shouldn’t appear. It seems to be on every page. I can’t remember offhand what lesson this is in but it should be in Certificate Course Level One, Lessons 8 and/or 9.
2. Personally I would make the yummy salad image a tiny bit smaller just so you can see the ‘Grilled Corn Salad Recipe’ just under it.

And now I am going to keep in touch with you.

Keep up the great recipes.
Ciao
Helen

I just love Chania, I feel so incredibly lucky to be living there! It really makes me feel alive and at peace.

Thank goodness, things have advanced considerably since you visited. I am especially grateful for my air-con in the heat, especially since I love to cook so much.

Thank you for your wonderful feedback it is truly appreciated. I must confess that the technology is beyond me. I will see what I can do to fix the issues that you mentioned.

Warmest regards
Anastasia

You're welcome. And I am still drooling over that salad. So much so that corn is on the shopping list this weekend. I love Mediterranean food. At one place I lived there was a little 'hole in the wall' restaurant called 'Grub Med'. I used to lunch there frequently as the food was extraordinarily tasty!

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 Frank,

Your timing is exceptional!

Ideally I would love to do something around food - spices in particular. Providing information on the different spices available, recipes for spice blends and recipes using those blends. This is one of my lifelong goals as I am passionate about everything to do with food. I am already collecting recipes and ideas for a recipe book on salads as well as one with my mothers and grandmothers Greek recipes.

However, I am impatient and I just want to get started as soon as possible! So what I have decided to do is start with the Affiliate Bootcamp, learn as much as I can and then put all that knowledge in making my other goals into reality.

Happy to hear your thoughts on this.

Warmest regards
Anastasia

Hey Anastasia,

Affiliate bootcamp is similar to the Certification course, however it is more specific to promoting the Wealthy Affiliate.

From what you've written, you'd be better off concentrating on the Certification course as this is more relevant to creating niche websites. You'd be able to create a business around spices and recipes, which would be great for turning your passion of spices into an online business.

Hi Frank

Initially I will focus on promoting WA and then when I am in Australia in August I will start working on my spice / recipe website as all my books and resources are there.

I am stuck on a WA niche at the moment but I will be going through the case studies you have emailed me and hopefully I will be able to make a decision after watching these this afternoon.

Thank you for your support!

Warmest regards
Anastasia

Welcome Anastasia, to Wealthy Affiliates and thanks for accepting my invitation to check it out.

There's a lot to learn here, the best place to start would be the level 1 certification course. So start with the first lesson by clicking on the link below. Be sure to create a profile and add a picture, that way you'll get lots of help from all the peeps in WA. You'll find out how to do this in the getting started link above.

Sadly some people don't even get this far, for some unknown reason.

If you can do this, (i.e.) follow simple instructions, (implementing as you go), soon you will be on your way to making your first sale.

And don't forget that you can also access me for 1-on-1 support by leaving a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/affilicoach or by private message if you are a premium member.

There are a ton of other features you have access to right now, but they are explained in your main training linked above. Your #1 job right now is to get to lesson 1!

★ ★ ★ Access Your Bonuses! ★ ★ ★

I also wanted to let you know that if you join the premium membership in this 7 day window you'll get a TON of awesome stuff from me.

First off, you'll get a 59% discount ($19.95 for 1 month) on your membership.

☆ ☆ Bonus #1: Live Case Study 5 Part Webinar Series

Get access to a 4-Part-Series Live Case Study webinar. It's video series where a professional internet marketer creates a complete 'niche website'. All steps are included and thoroughly explained, including research, rank, content creation and monetization. Total length of the videos is 4+ hours

This will give you a broad overview of the type of site you will create on Wealthy Affiliate. I think it's always a good idea to know the direction you are headed before you start your journey.

Please feel free to ask questions in the community through live chat or the Getting started classroom above. Or as I mentioned before, hit me up anytime you want in WA.

Anyway, I know you'd be eager to have a browse around so I'll let you get your feet wet.

Best of luck, and don't forget you can always ask me for help!


Best,
Frank

Dear Frank

Thank you for your warm welcome to the Wealthy Affiliate Community. I am very keen to get started and start making money.

I am hoping to complete all the free lessons within seven days before committing financially to Premium Membership. My introduction to the Online / Internet Marketing business has so far been an expensive one and I am hesitant at this stage to spend any more without being 100% confident that I will be able to see some sort of financial returns.

Looking forward to the lessons!

Warmest regards
Anastasia
