This article will help you to achieve a faster result than I did.

It is a reflection of all my mistakes as a blogger and an Internet Marketer. Please read: You will thank me later for this small article.

Hello James, And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined and with your other online experience you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep referring to the training.
If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 430+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me PM anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

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

Hi Robert,

Yes, I have MUCH to learn. I will heed your advice and appreciate your offer. Thank you for that and for the follow.

Btw: In the 1800s, my great-grandfather, Andrew Fleming, abandoned the family business in Edinburgh to settle as a farmer in the United States' state of Texas. Because of that, Scotland intrigues me.

Be well, my friend,
James

No probs James and if/when you read my blogs make sure you choose the ones that will help you in conjunction with whatever training you are currently taking.

Scotland is a great place with great people.
You should come and visit some day and you will go back home with great memories.

One of my relatives emigrated to the USA and formed the Topeka Aitchison Railroad.
I believe there is a town named after him (Aitchison)
Have a great Wednesday.
Robert

Congratulation on upgrading to Premium! You have begun a journey that will change your life.

Just remember, life is filled with situations where we are faced with a ‘fight or flight’ decision. If you run, you’ll have to face the same fight again. You want to change your life? You have to fight for it. But take heart – you are in good company! Don't give up!

Feel free to follow me and if you have any questions, I will be happy to either answer them or direct you to someone who can.

Always remember: the only stupid question is the one that you don’t ask

You are welcome. Just remember: I felt overwhelmed at first too! Information overload! Take your time. Ignore all the stuff you don't understand yet, just concentrate on the training and things will come into focus.
It was the turtle that won the race, not the rabbit. Baby steps forward, my new e-friend.

Thank you, Gary! I plan to "pick your brain." For a starter, how do you relate WA to your profession as a writer?
Reply
GaryHorton Premium
Hi, James!

It's a pleasure to meet you.

Regarding WA and writing, writers have a huge advantage when it comes to building an online business.

Blogs and websites are dependent on content and a writer is an infinite source of content. Also, writing persuasively is a powerful skill when applied to an online business.

I'm here for you,
Gary

Hi Gary,

My son wants to get involved. Am I able to bring him in through myself, somehow? If so, how do I do that?

Thanks,
James

GaryHorton Premium
Hi, James!

That's great that your son wants to get involved. I wish I could have started WA when I was younger.

Yes, absolutely he can join WA through you. You just need to send him your WA affiliate link.

To be sure that he joins WA through you, first, ask him to clear the cookies and browsing history on his computer. If he's been checking out WA online, he may have picked up a cookie from another WA affiliate. If he did pick up a cookie from another WA affiliate, it will block your affiliate cookie and you won't get credit for your son's membership.

After your son has cleared his cookies and browsing history. Send him your affiliate link.

Here's how to get your affiliate link.

Click on the "$" at the top right of your WA dashboard.

Then Click on "Links & Tracking."

Near the top of the page, you'll see "Main Link." That's the link you want to send to your son.

Gary
