About JanP2
Joined May 2017
I am Janice Palmer from Derbyshire, England. I'm in my early 60's and am looking for a way to supplement my pension. I've heard about making money online via working with affiliate products. So I searched Google and got lost!

However, I found the Wealthy Affiliate website - early May 2017. WA looks like an excellent place to find out how it's all done! Hmm. It seems that I've much to learn here. Oh well, let's see what fortune lies ahead for me!

Update: May 25, 2017 - week three into WA. Hmm, I am happy. I have a niche, an indexed website (with the https prefix), which is now gradually being populated with content. I am learning a lot about this online affiliate marketing game. I am giving feedback to other WA websites. I must have done something advanced - by signing up for Amazon Associates - without any WA training! I can now promote products on Amazon UK whenever I want to. WA Rank: 1,595, whatever that means!

Update: June 30, 2017 - I am learning a lot about this business. Running two websites is not on! It takes too much time for one person. I cannot do two things at once. So, I have DELETED my photography site, and I am concentrating on the BritishWildlifeFacts.co.uk site. This website has been live for nearly three weeks, has tons of content already (24 pages and 4 posts, added to daily), but not yet indexed. There are lots and lots of images, videos and fascinating information about the natural history of Britain. As soon as the site is indexed, it will become monetized.

Update: August 22, 2017 - 58 pages, 22 posts. All wonderfully rich content on bririshwildlifefacts.co.uk. Now being indexed. Monitoring what Goole sees on Google Console. Until there are lots of visitors coming to the website I will NOT monetize this site. What is the point? Becoming an authority site takes time. Only when my site has daily visitors coming by will I add Amazon and other affiliate products to my web pages. So far, not much traffic. Google and Bing are slow at indexing new uploaded posts and pages. 47 out of 58 pages indexed by Google. This process is going to take time. Putting bits of content on Google Plus seems to help with indexing.

Update: December 14, 2017 - 96 pages, 64 posts, 91 approved comments. I am now using Thrive Architect. I have links to Amazon products scattered around my web pages. As of today, no sales. The traffic I get is SMALL. I check that with Google Console and my Amazon Affiliate site. It seems that the time from May to December is NOT long enough to get search engine traction. I have visitors, but not may. Perhaps next year, 2018, will be when the search engines recognize that the britishwildlifefacts.co.uk website as a reliable authority site for people to visit for wildlife info. I'll see.

Hi Jan. I did read somewhere that if you attract a whole lot of visitors to your site, who love your content and then you start monetizing it, you may well lose people immediately. Be upfront from the start about your goals ie as you have said in your bio, wanting to supplement your pension. Just some positive input for you. Good luck.

Hi, Janice. (I think you prefer "Janice" and not "Jan": am I right?)

Just discovered you, via the comment you made earlier today, on "What Does Social Engagement Mean to Your Business" (Online Entrepreneur Certification
Level 4, Lesson 1 - Mastering Social Engagement): What you said there resonates with me, so I looked you up.

I love your patient, methodical approach and that you detail it in your WA profile and blog posts.

https://britishwildlifefacts.co.uk/ is gorgeous and impressive!

Tell me, did you have a lot of website-building experience before you joined WA? I ask because you seem so knowledgeable in your posts.

I'm following you now and looking forward to hearing more about your online journey.

Oh, I have been around a bit, Sharon. But it is never to late to stop learning new things - like what we have here at WA.

At the moment, however, I am having difficulty with course 4, which is all about social media. I find it to be thoroughly boring and with too many irritable types always commenting with silly talk.

And now, as we are all gradually finding out, FB, the Google monster and other SM networks are punishing affiliate marketers who include affiliate links on their posts. Besides, much of SM is rather puerile. It is not for proper business people.

I get the feeling that what worked with SM up to 3 months ago will not work in the near future because of changes to terms and conditions. SM is becoming mainstream and predictable, unless we buy ad space. No more free rides, I think. They are in business to make money, not to provide a free platform for others to do so at their expense.

I will never join FB and I am tired of G+. Twitter is okay for now, but everyone using it has a hidden motive I think. And I don't like what I read last week about Android phones sending signals as to their whereabouts to Google without our permission. That is nasty.

SM is losing my trust. I think I will bypass the whole of course 4.

I am now following you, Sharon.

Janice.

Thank you Janice for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. As a Premium Member you are probably aware of the AWESOME and FREE WA Keyword Tool we have unlimited access to.

This is the keyword research tool I have used exclusively after I became a Premium member 3+ years ago and it has helped me many times to find awesome keywords that have led to Google page 1 rankings.

I created very popular WA Training Tutorials, Part 1 and Part 2, on how to use the WA Keyword Tool for keyword research. If you have not seen it and would like to learn how simple it is to use and a little about keywords, click the below link when you have the time.

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! :)

Hello, Kyle. Thank you very much for your concern about my niche selection.

I have picked one - 'digital photography and Adobe Photoshop techniques', as I a bit of an expert with these.

I have already discovered, to my amazement, that there are many Photoshop affiliate programs available, not to mention oodles of DSLR cameras and photography gear on offer at websites such as Amazon and others.

I may as well enter this niche and dig down for perhaps lucrative sub-niches in this rather large niche. I will see what happens.

But first, I must complete more training! I am new to website work, so I intend to acquire experience with your free SiteRubix thing. I will see how that goes.

I will be elated if I can earn enough commission to pay for Premium membership here at WA. My idea of making money online is 'get it to pay for itself'. Once that happens, I might even try advertising on Google and social media websites to boost sales. That ought to work.

For the moment though (today is 'only' my third day with WA), I want to see how this is all going to pan out before I spend part of my pension money! I would, however, prefer to see commissions coming in to finance this new online venture.

I have noticed that one or two people here at WA that I am following say that they make $2,000+ each month in commissions as if were second nature. No big deal. That would suit me fine if I could achieve that! That is my aim for now as it will make my pension easier to live with.

Thanks, Kyle.

Janice.

Awesome Janice, I do like your direction here and I know that as you move forward through the training, you are going to see your business truly start to take shape. There are people here making much more than $2K per month, we have all shapes and sizes here and people working within 100,000's of different niches.

The internet is a pretty awesome and exciting place and there is truly room for all of us to succeed online. :)

If you need anything else moving forward, do let me know. :)

Hello, Brendan! Nice to meet you. Yes, I am a good photographer so I may as well learn the ropes of this affiliate business in that niche. I will have a look at what you have done in that niche when I get a WiFi connection on my smartphone as I am travelling today. Thank you for following me.

Janice.

Goodmorning Janice!!

Welcome here on WA - I see you are a newbie, just as I was two weeks ago.

You were fortunate having joined WA as a first choice - I read many stories on WA, which differ a great deal from yours and mine as well.

The learning curve here is indeed ... steep!! I am 'green as grass' in every respect and the overwhelm was beyond reasonable.

But no worries !!!! WA is a close-knit community - never experienced this to such a degree!!! - you will never be left out!!

Wishing you a beyond average supplemental income!

Henriette.
