Joined October 2009
Welcome WA family,

My name is Jamie Smith. I am 40 years old from Minneapolis Minnesota. I am GodFather to Hailey Sadler. I am together with my wife Elizabeth for 17 years. I have a music and marketing background. I was a professional music instructor and vocal coach, teaching my students basic-advanced guitar, vocal, trumpet, music theory and ear training. These days I do marketing full time, thanks to the skills I learned here in WA. I am forever grateful to Jay, Kyle, Carson, Marcus and Travis. Thanks to these talented gentlemen, I stepped up my marketing hustle worldwide to the next level. I travel and do business all over the world. I enjoy the Arts, marketing, travel, skateboarding, snowboarding, supercross, yoga, tai chi and working out.

Marketing Consultant

I rep SPINNER COLLECTIVE, Worldclass Management, and Amazon.
I handle the marketing for Worldclass Management in London UK.
I am a Marketing Affiliate for Amazon.com

I joined the WA family in October 2009. I went to college for music & marketing and I am very blessed to already be successful. We are at a great place in history where the online culture meets the cell phone culture. Everything I do here with the WA family worldwide is reflected in 21st Century culture. My advice is to read the Action Plan. Pick a niche that is a passion, so it doesn't feel like a "job". Everything I do with marketing is to support the Arts, that is my passion.

THANK YOU for supporting the Arts!

Wow! Sounds way awesome! Actually curious if you have any advice... When people ask me if I sing I say no. Truth is, I love singing and for the entire year I lived in Russia (away from home) I didn't stop. After giving it a ton of thought I realized I stop singing when a really good friend of mine - who has a really nice voice and comes from a musical family - kept telling me I couldn't sing... (I've been to voice lessons and teacher told me I'm great, on tune, can sing whatever note she plays, etc...) So I believe that I can sing but very often I know the tune in my head, but can't translate that to my actual singing ie. I know when I'm off tune, but don't know how to fix that.
On a different note (no pun intended :) I've been taking violin lessons for a few years and recently picked up a ukulele and trying to learn online - but I would love to learn to play by ear. I'm a big believer that while it's way easier if this is a natural talent, it's still a skill that can be learned... Any advice?

Here is a program I hope you will take a look at. And a question for you. Why are people so afraid today to take a very small risk (heck no risk right now) in a prelaunch program that can really help them to grow their business by leaps and bounds? Go here now and just take a look around. Just copy and paste the link. Seems like WA won't let it become a clickable link. http://www.zingbizpro.com/?ZBP?=hotbizman

Hi Jamie, you were one of the first people to welcome me. You also sent me some gold and said you had my back. I sure appreciate that. I have posted several questions and gotten no responses. Where is the best place to ask a question? Also I have found some of the same questions I have, in the forum, but they were not answered either. I'm plugging along and making steady progress, but am spending a lot of time searching the site for answers. Any thoughts? Also I tried to send this as a pm but when I put in your name it didn't go through, and the search in "browse spaces" didn't work either.

Thats my routine every day, how do you live your life, it's so interesting - I say awesome. Anyways thanks - take care- Martha

Cor man! You are some marketer. You know I am taking your advice right now and head for Jays’ webinars.
I also like your passion for the arts. And music is my passion too, love it completely even though I don’t play music well…
But one day I’ll return to piano lessons when I retire and, when you come to London, I’d like to go and see you perform and meet you if possible, to ask you for personal advice about marketing which is now also my passion as well. Love your enterprise, since you seem to be everywhere! Well done sir.

Wow Jamie, you are so much of too many things and I am so glad that you welcome me into this WA family that seems really extraordinary by what I have already read.
I will take your advice and endeavour to follow it. Will check out Jay's LinkWheel MindMap. Also I am trying to follow the Action Plan and want to pick something within my passions which are music and the arts, also sports like golf, football and basketball. However, I am getting too slow in finding the right data to come with a good domain name with natural traffic. Simply don't know what to choose and fear buying domain names that have no traffic at all like I did in the past, only to waste money.
Anyway Jamie, about me, I have not done a fraction of what you have achieved already. I am a production, precision engineer and been so all my adult life and my wanting to learn marketing is only a recent decision. So I am in this part time at the moment, but believe that WA will allow me to go forward and be a success at affiliate marketing which is what I want to do best right now. Cannot wait to dedicate to IM what I now spend on my day job which I so much want to end. I am 63 years old and hope that this is no impediment for learning online marketing. In fact I do know that much older people are doing it very successfully. Like so many people I've read about doing affiliate marketing, I too wasted a lot of time and money before arriving at this program that seems to me to be very different and serious about our success, so I like to make a much greater effort and stay focus on what I must do to succeed online. Kyle and Carson are brilliant and their giving style is great as well so I am glad I am here.
Jamie, thanks for your great advice and believe me I take notice.
Great respect too and regards.

So pretty much if we are passionate about something , example..boyfriend likes video games that would be the niche? Or myself I like to chat on facebook with my friends so what would my niche be?
Reply
Jamie Smith Premium
I have not used DMOZ.org yet, tbh. If my memory serves me correctly, it was suggested to use that site if you are having problems coming up with a niche. My best advice about picking niches is by the kind of websites you enjoy surfing during your free time. What kind of things are you into? Chances are there is $$ to be made within those niches. I will gladly help you with your niche research if you have additional questions my friend, please feel free to send me a PM.
Reply
Jamie Smith Premium
Yes, since your boyfriend enjoys video games, he could make a full time living just from that one niche. Set up a website about video games and drop amazon.com affiliate links on his site so his visitors can purchase videos games, gaming systems, etc. Facebook is a great resource for marketing, but it my opinion, I wouldn't consider it a niche. What type of things do you & your friends enjoy chatting about on facebook? Chances are there is $$ to be found in those common interests. What type of websites do you surf? Amazon sells so many different types of products, lots of options. If you have any additional niche questions, please feel free to send them to me on the PM system. I got your back.

Hi Jamie-
Thanks for the buddy request. I'm new on spaces and trying to meet more people. Thats really great what you're doing to support the arts through online marketing. I would like to do the same! Sounds like you are a very accomplished musician. I play a bit too- started the piano when I was a kid and now play the cello. I have been playing more lately, and would like to play some jazz in addition to the classical I was trained to play as a kid.
Cheers- James

Hi Jamie, thanks for looking in on a newbie. True fact, my son-in-law's name is Jamie. It seems you've been around the block and back with your music. Congrats. Have a brother now living in California that sings, plays drums, and harmonica,and a few years back preformed in an entertainment circuit, big clubs for a living. Ahh back when. Oh well snow in Cincinnati tonight so no golf tomorrow. Working two part time jobs so I golf when I can. Will be making that my niche, which for now may also take some of my playing time. Thanks for chat Bill.
Reply
Jamie Smith Premium
Cheers Bill, thanks for the kind words about my career. 26years as a musician, it is a wonderful musical journey and I enjoy marketing even more thanks to WA. Your son-in-law has a cool name by the way. Yes, since golf is your passion, not only should you make that your niche, but you should also get Jennifer PotPieGirl on you crew. She and her husband LOVE golf.

In my quest for WA buddies, it is refreshing to find a fellow musician. I am a drummer/bass player and home studio hobbiest.
