About JamesOpa
Joined December 2017
Hello, my name is James Opa and I am from Papua New Guinea (PNG). I am excited and happy meet to you and here's something brief I want you to know about me.

I was employed in the Commerce, Culture & Tourism Industry for over 14 years. Ending of December 2017 I decided that I should step down from my corporate life and follow my adventurous heart. I registered an ecotourism travel and tour company and my goal was to encourage and help online entrepreneurs like you and other international visitors, to visit Papua New Guinea through my website and company Ecotourism Travel & Tours PNG. I would like to connect with you as a friend and an online business partner on this awesome platform.

I am adventurous at heart and even though I was employed, my adventurous heart lead me to spend most of my free time outdoors in the wilderness basically appreciating the beauty of nature and unique culture of my people. My adventurous heart Iikes to blend in with nature and appreciate what nature provides. Its rejuvenating, re-energizing and inspiring. Papua New Guinea has some of the most fascinating geography, wild life, cultures and traditions in the world. In my home province, the Kikori basin river has over 99 species of fish, pig nose turtle conservation and round nose river dolphin which is only found in PNG and Australia and bird species you can never find anywhere in the world. I'd like to connect with you as a friend and an online business partner.

I am thankful from the bottom of my heart to God and mother universe I came across this awesome site and awesome community of like minded online entrepreneurs. I am confident I will achieve my goal within this awesome community of like minded entrepreneurs and awesome WA platform. And I believe you will too. Thank you Kyle and Carson. You guys Rock!! And thank you to the ever helpful WA Community.

Thank you for reading. Its nice to meet you and thank you for being my friend.

Your Friend

Hi James, nice to hear from you. I look forward to getting to know you my new WA friend. Sorry about the delay in responding but I am a bit slow at the moment. Trying to do too many things at once.

Great profile story. I love the look of your land and the birds are fantastic. I have a very good friend who used to teach there. She is an unbelievably good wildlife artist and her birds really showed their beauty.

I see you have a website up and running. You might want to think about putting the links here on your profile page.

You do this by going to the right of your profile page, down to the bottom where it says 'Follow me on' and click on it. Put your website URL and any social media URLs you have (and want to add). This way people like me can hop in, visit and leave a comment. This makes it easier for us to follow you as this will be a direct link. And extra traffic is always welcome.

You should also do some more blogs here on your profile page. These go into Google too so add to your online profile. Also if you are promoting WA these WA blogs help build trust with your referrals. They can see you are really involved here.

If you have time I would love it if you visited one of my websites and left a comment on a post, any one will do. The site addresses are workingonthewildside.com & fantasy-sci-fi-vision.com.

As soon as you have a website link here let me know so I can return the comment.

Keep working hard, having fun and don’t forget to ask questions.

A very nice boss once told me, ‘Helen, when you ask a silly question everyone else breathes a collective sigh of relief because they don’t have to!’ And that is so true. No question is silly so ask away.

If I can’t help I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Now let us keep in touch.

Ciao
Helen

Hi, James thanks for following me, I see you have spend 14 years in Culture and Tourism. Since you have knowledge about the industry, lets include travelling as well,
- Travelling tickets affiliate program
- Images of different destination
- History, culture, language, politics, commerce, government, transport infrastructure of a specific country, etc

You do your own research online or offline and build a site, Wheretogo.com, Wondersofthisworld.com, knowhereotherslive.com. I'm not saying leave your project, but don't leave behind what you did best in your working years, because you have extensive knowledge about it.

Good day to you James, my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. I'm following you back. If you are not fully experienced in online marketing, I suggest you first learn the Get Started Here training [top left green box]. This is the certification program designed to teach you how to choose a niche, build a niche website, and learn keyword research. Everything else you learn here is built on these three principles.
You have chosen wisely because WA offers you everything you need to build a profitable online business and with the community here of like-minded entrepreneurs, you'll never find a problem that
can't be solved.
I look forward to working with you and wish you much enjoyment as well as success in your online journey.

Hello James and Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you've been here you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 390+ blogs I have published within WA.

JamesOpa Premium
Thanks Tim, I've chosen a niche..mens watches. Is that still general or should I narrow it down to a specific brand?
Reply
JamesOpa Premium
Tim, I wonder if it's ok for me to create a website that basically links to MVMT watches as an affiliate. Your advise please
Reply
TimMcKinlay Premium
Hey James,

Men's watches is a bit broad, I would be narrowing this down a bit. And no, you do not want to just link to a sales page. Your job as an affiliate is essentially building an audience. To do this you need to create useful and relevant content. This is how you get traffic, and build trust. Then... you can make money recommending relevant products and services as an affiliate.

Does this help/ make sense?
Reply
JamesOpa Premium
Thanks Tim, give me an example please, say with watches..
Reply
TimMcKinlay Premium
Ok so instead of thinking in terms of just 'products' you want to think in terms of "what group of people can I help". This is key.

In this case, you could break the 'mens watches' down in a number of ways.

Men looking for different types of watches (sports, diving, work, luxury, cheap etc...)

Watches for __ (young, old) men.

Men looking for watches made from different materials.

Gift watches for men.

You could review all the different watches of a certain type. For example, "luxury mens watches reviews" or "best diving watches for men".

These are just a few ideas. The idea is to try to really think about the people in the niche, what defines the different groups. Target a specific group.

Don't get me wrong, you don't need to go too narrow. But there's a balance between too broad and too narrow.

For example- 'mens watches' is too broad. But 'Ronde Solo De Cartier mens watch' is too narrow. Something like "best watches for men who are into golfing" could work.

I think there's a lot of potential within this niche. I mean, the prices some of these watches go for means your commissions could work out to be very nice.

Hope this helps! :) Let me know if you have any other questions. Cheers

Tim, is it possible for me at this stage to go back and redo my domain?
Reply
TimMcKinlay Premium
You can't re-do a domain, but you can cancel it and buy a new one. Or use a free .siterubix.com domain name.

Once you do get a new domain name, you can simply build a new site with it or transfer your old site to that new domain name. Whatever it may be.

Let me know if you need help with this.

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! :)

You can link to whatever you want on your website, but the key is to build it out properly right from the foundation. You want to focus on being a brand and an authority with in your given niche, regardless of which direction that you have.

I have spent some time breaking down the process in the most simplistic way possible. Success online is at the core a 4 step process and I have broken them down within this video: Broken, down, the process looks like this:

Step 1: Choose your niche
Step 2: Build your website/content
Step 3: Get rankings in search engines (leads to traffic)
Step 4: Monetize your traffic (the make money part, through affiliate programs, etc!)

This applies in absolutely every niche and as you work through the training here at WA, you are going to be walked through this exact process. This is fundamental for ANY success online.

If you have any further questions let me know James. :)

Hi James, welcome to WA!

I'm Tim, you might remember me from my website Affiliate UnGuru. I'm just stopping by to say hi and offer you my personal support moving forward :)

The very first thing I recommend you do, is click on the green tab to the left (Get Started Here) and go through the step-by-step training. Everything you need to know is explained right within these lessons.

Alternatively, click on this link which takes you to the same place: If there's anything you need some help with I'm just a click away! Simply reply to this message and I'll get back to you asap.

I was a newbie here myself once and asked lots of questions (even though I was worried they were 'dumb questions') so I encourage you to do the same. Don't be shy! Take full advantage of the wealth of support you get here to build your online business.

Anyways James, it's wonderful to have you as part of the WA community and I wish you the very best of success on your journey here!
