About Jacob23
Joined January 2017
Greetings WA community, my name is Jacob, and I joined WA in January 2017. I have a full-time job in the Middle East, but my family lives in the Philippines, my second home.

I have been involved in education most of my life. I had six years’ business experience in fast food franchising earlier in my life as well. I am a total newcomer(as of Jan 2017) to the internet marketing business and I had done a lot of research on it before I joined WA.

During my online research, I discovered that making money online is not as easy as many online marketers claim to be. I had struggled for weeks to reach some kind of success with online programs, to no avail.

Then I discovered Wealthy Affiliate.

So, this is my new destination and passion. I am very excited to learn how to make money online, the RIGHT way!

Success comes only through hard work and dedication, as in any full-time job!

The leverage with WA is that you can do this anywhere you want when you want.
It seems I arrived at the RIGHT platform at the RIGHT time!!

Hello Jacob,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, 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. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Just a quick question: How did you get that butterfly to stay on your nose like that, or did you photoshop that in, lol.
Reply
jacob23 Premium
LOL> no photo tricks, the butterfly is real! We were visiting a butterfly garden in Bohol, Philippines a few years back and it landed on my nose. My wife had the camera ready, and voila, a perfect shot! One of my favorite shots ever in the Philippines!! Cheers, Jacob

Thank you, Tomas. Thank you for following me too.

I am in the process of building content on my 1st website and started with a second. I am still a beginner here, but learned loads of new stuff, not only about online affiliate marketing and website building but also about very interesting life experiences here on the WA community!

Everyone is working towards the same goal and therefore very supportive in assisting new members!

I am super grateful to be part of the WA experience!!
I will surely ask if stuck, thank you!
I've already received tremendous help and support from members, Kyle and Site Support!!

WA community rocks!!

Cheers, Jacob

Thanks for connecting, Jacob - I'm now following you back. You've definitely come to the right place for the best training and support in the online marketing world. I've been around the block a few times the same as you. Our experiences seem quite similar. What everyone will tell you here though, is that this will take a good few months rather than a few weeks. Wishing you all the very best in your endeavours :-)

Hope all is going well. Just want to drop in and make sure that you had found your way around WA.

Quick Hint:

Do not post questions directly on your profile page because they will be missed if you don't have many followers. Rather use the "live chat" and connect directly with members who will give you an instant answer to problems you might have.

Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions - This community has some awesome individuals that will help out gladly.

jacob23 Premium
Thanks Christene. Thanks for the hint. I am finding my way around. I did drop you a question about my BOOTCAMP website About Me page...maybe it got lost somewhere. Just needed to know if you could look at my About me page content? I am not good in writing about me, worse so in blogging! Just need to get some honest feedback. I did publish my about me page and private policy, and still need to do the starting up page...it is a tedious process between my full time job, but I am eager to get my initial website done as soon as I can.cheers.

Hi Jacob.

Sincere apologies for the delayed reply. Loved one passed away, making it hard to keep up with all the messages, hope I am forgiven?

Can you please send me the link to your "about me" page? Will gladly take a look and give some advice and tips on how to proceed.
Reply
jacob23 Premium
No problem. My sincere condolences! Well, after upgrading to premium, I decided to take a few steps back as I was losing track of all the details. So, I revised my niche and starting my website all over again. Learn the hard way as I think I was overexcited in starting my website but was not focused on the details. So, thank you so much for coming back to me, but I might not disturb you for a few more days until I am actually feeling comfortable with the new website!! What I would ask is to give me feedback on my niche if you do not mind? I am a bbq fanatic, so my niche is Charcoal Barbecue Grilling - focusing on reviews on methods, products / tools / accessories, recipes and sauces as a start.... does this make sense? cheers

Thank you Jacob for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. If you need any help remember to post your question in the comments section or on live chat, and someone will be able to help you.

I created a short but informative training tutorial for all New Members that tell you what you can do here at WA and most importantly give you a link to the RULES of WA and what you cannot do here. If you have the time or wish to, please check out the rest of my training, listed under my picture on my profile page. I explain ways to help you build a better website, ways to make some extra $$$ with your WA training, and best practices here at WA. I occasionally post a humorous blog on first Sunday of every month. Enjoy!

So many followers since I started yesterday! It is great to be among like-minded people!! Never found this on any other affiliate platform!! Fantastic to have support and help from Kyle and the community here in the comfort of my home, or office (as this is where I am now). I am so excited about WA after struggling weeks to get my online marketing business started! I am enthusiastic and positive about what is lying ahead! Let's GO!

Hey Jacob, I am impressed with how easy it has been to get my website together. That being said it was a lot of work, but it was fun work. I wish you all the best with the new baby.

Thank you so much. I have been creating websites before using other platforms. I looked at the siteRubrix ones here. It looks fairly straight forward. Hope to get mine up soon. Will start off with the WA affiliate program, as this is what I feel comfortable with at this stage.I am still chewing on my niche for the second website. Cheers.

Christene9 Premium
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! :)

Thanks a mill. Will surely do so. In fact I have decided to upgrade to premium and run with the WA affiliate program. I feel comfortable in doing just that.

Hi Christene. Can I ask you to check the ideas about my About Me page? Please let me know how I can get it to you for perusal. Will appreciate it. I need to get it up on my website. cheers

I am a total newbie here. Thank you for giving me this opportunity in joining up with WA. At last I stumbled on the real deal in affiliate marketing(AM)/ Internet Marketing (IM). I am new to internet marketing. My background is in Education, which I am involved in most of my life, and I had six years’ business experience in fast food franchising earlier in my life. So, my point is, I am a total newcomer to the internet marketing business and had done a lot of research on it the past few weeks. I joined Clickbank and started to promote products on CB via Facebook with my own website. To do all this, takes a lot of effort and sourcing many ways in doing affiliated marketing correctly.
Very soon, I discovered the following:
• There are numerous SCAM products on CB.
• You need to do your research very well on the product before promoting it.
• You need to learn how to build your own landing page and teach yourself how to promote products online, and, and….the list goes on and on.
• Patience is key if you want to be successful in AM.
• You do not get support from many of these product vendors, and you are basically on your own.
• It is a tedious task learning the tricks of the trade and teaching yourself on how to do IM.
• Doing all this will not create any positive results if you do not have the support base to help you through this process.
Then I discovered Wealthy Affiliate online, reading a review on Christene Swanepoel’s review page about The CB Passive Income product, which has a very high gravity rating on CB! Then I read her review on WA. I looked at the information on the WA website and then realized that this is the program that will work for me!
Finally, I found a program that is FREE to join and that is comprehensive enough in teaching you everything you want to know about AM under one roof, and at the same time providing you with an opportunity to earn money as well. Exactly what I was looking for the past few weeks!
So, this is my new destination and passion. I joined WA today, and I am very excited to learn how to make money online, the RIGHT way! I immediately received a welcome email from Kyle.
My goal is not to earn thousands of dollars. My goal is to set up an online business that will work for me and if I can earn $500 - $1000 a month in the next year or so, then I will be super grateful.
I hope to achieve that soon.
Thank you for your support and helping me in reaching my goal!
Thank you, Christene Swanepoel! (…from a fellow Saffa)
Greetings,
Jacob

Allow me to personally welcome you to our Wealthy Affiliate family, you had made a wise decision to try out the program and if you use it wisely within the next few days you will learn a lot and also meet some wonderful people that will not hesitate to help you personally.

The most difficult part is always to TAKE ACTION and I strongly advise you to start with the "Get Started Here" section of Wealthy Affiliate as soon as possible in order to get the valuable head start that you need towards building an online business and earning money.

Just remember every day you sit idle is a day wasted!

Never hesitate to ask for help here on Wealthy Affiliate all of us will do our best to help.
