About Jatdebeaune
Joined September 2009
Not so new anymore to Wealthy Affiliate. I'm an old newbie. In fact,
I feel like a perennial "newbie". There are some aspects of IM that are very comfortable for me right now, and others that will require patience and focus to master. The tech stuff still gives me anxiety. Html blues. Here's the good news...the stress disappears every time I learn something. So eventually all the stress will go bye bye. I suspect, it will
be the same for the "new" newbies.

So glad to be here! Appreciate that Kyle and Carson created such a fine community to learn this craft. WA has a great positive vibe, with wonderful members.

Before I came here, I bought into lots of programs and guru material. I was chasing my tail like a mad monkey on crack. Have had fun though, if blowing through your resources can be fun. Spent money on things I didn't need, burned holes in my pockets, and ended up with pathetically puny success, but energetic websites. No computer experience. Hah! I didn't even know how to turn one on. No kidding. Obviously, didn't know enough, so I just winged it. I was so confused. Not enough knowledge is a dangerous thing. But you have to start somewhere. That was yesterday and today is today. Every day I am that much more knowledgeable, that much ahead. Tomorrow will be another story. The ahah! moments are cumulative. If you want to know how far you have come, just look at where you started.

I was a printed textile designer, product designer, and an illustrator in New York for many years. I've won lots of industry awards, and it's the way I earned my living. I am really a painter. My big passion is painting. My primary focus right now is my art. IM was originally intended to be a way to support myself while I transition from the applied to the fine arts and paint.

Surprise! I greatly underestimated the amount of skill and experience it takes to be a successful marketer online. I am using my newly acquired skills to promote art and design. I aim to use this knowledge as inventively as I can. You can't invent if you don't get those technical skills under your belt too.

Have had to figure out how to keep the daylight hours for painting and drawing, and work online at night. Like most painters, I need daylight to see color.

My first manner of business at WA has been to stay organized and to be disciplined. Discipline!!! Discipline means to stay "on purpose" and always remember what I am here for, which is to learn how to be a creative, contributive, and profitable online presence while I serve "art" first.

Protect time. Time is yours and my most valuable commodity.

Update: Even though I have a great deal to learn about Internet Marketing, I am understanding the connection between each step, and becoming analytical of the whole process. That's good news for anybody. When you figure out the logic, you can save yourself time, even when you experiment.

I wish everybody here much success in attaining your individual goals.

If it is to make a full time living online, then cheers to you! You can do it. You are in the right place to support that goal. You will have all the help you will ever need.

Here goes that timing thing again Joan. Once again I have decided to put more of myself into this WA thing. Not their fault but mine. Procrastination is such a task master :-p. Sorry to hear that you are leaving. all the best in your new venture.

Joan...I completely understand and appreciate your story and find it to be so close to my own. Being an artist/designer/illustrator/cartoonist myself, I can relate in that I have followed numerous roads of 'divine temptation', wherever they led. Fortunately, many were very good and I was able to make my living doing what I enjoyed. Now retired, I have joined WA as a means to try and further market my artwork. Many opportunities are out there, I just have to find them and I will. I do wish you well as you continue your journey and hope that WA is good to you as you merge your interests. Success... !!!

Hello Joan. I ran across your profile accidentally and thoroughly enjoyed reading what you said and what I thought was there that you didn't say. I practiced medicine for 40 yrs. and only charged people because I had to in order to feed my family. I enjoyed it so much and found it so rewarding and exciting that I almost felt guilty to also get paid! I hope your needing to focus some on income production does not eliminate or reduce your thrill you get from your real work "your love". Best wishes to you.

Hi Joan, my name is Tom, and thanks for the "FOLLOW me", .... you and I have come to the right place, and like you wish to learn more and become that person who can help and share valuable knowledge. Everyone of us have a unique talent and want to help as many others enjoy working from home in a profitable "Home Based" business. Riches, won't make you happy, but having enough is all one needs, ....... should I be blessed with more than I really need in this life, this would put me in a better position to help others in the future.

Hey! thanks for the "Follow" I look forward to corresponding with you. WA is the right place to be, and will get all the support from Kyle and Carson and others who are in a position to count themselves worthy for bringing their talents to such a wonderful site. As for me, I have made my presence known to all, looking for that special person to connect with, also to let you know that I have just joined as a premuim member on 11th October 2013 and in great need of support,. Thanks for taking a look at my page which you are more than welcomed to see what I am up to and would love to engage with you also.

Yes! like you have had a very good artistic talent which started during my school years, and a never really carry this on, but there were times money was short I would do an oil painting for a wedding gift. Being an outdoor guy, had no interest in mobile phones/computers period. Now I have to try and get my head into this, is taking it's toll on my character. I find myself always looking to see other sites for tips and tricks!! That's if I am able to say that! I have no idea of how to go about this, but am willing to put all the time and energy in to make it my life's pension.

Inspiring post. Thank you. Think we are following each other. WA is the place for each of us learning every day no matter how new we are. Yes, we are newbies each day, since we are best when we learn by doing. Doing IM is getting a little easier and with focus, practice and determination, believe results will happen. Being mentored by so many good people like you, is the icing on the cake. Love the arts, have met three artists here at WA, each one with different form and style. Seems we are all doing IM and our passions that we put aside while we were employed.

Hi Joan, Greetings from Cyprus, a great bio, it is interesting to know that you are into painting, a good friend of mine in the UK Geoffrey Dashwood is a sculptor in contemporary bronze birds, I built the interior of his gallery in the New Forest Hampshire UK and the plinths for the displays. But here we are with our fingers to the key board now ha ha ha.

Yes Brian, I have to support my habit until it supports itself. The fine arts serve no master. The "keyboard" is an extension of whatever we do anyway. So we write a little about what we know. It's a win win. What's the harm? Are you a builder by trade?

When I left school I went into catering as a comi chef took my UK City and Guilds certificate, next job was a progress chaser for an engineering company, from there I took another course in wood machining and worked for Crosby doors Swindon, left there and went to work for British Leyland on machine tool setting, left there and worked for British aerospace on air frames detail section, made redundant from there, got a job as foreman at wooden toy factory, left there and worked for Sunseeker power boats, left there and started my own joinery business making doors, windows, furniture, kitchens, wood turning, extentions to buildings, timber roofing, renovation work, repairs to domestic appliances, car maintenance and rebuilding of cars, goodness me how did I fit it all in ha ha ha, so there you go, I suppose there's not much I havn't done, except internet stuff, I have always been on my feet so to speak, so I'm a practical sort of guy, but now my tools are all but laid to one side but I have the memories.

Hi joan, I just wanted to say, after reading your blog before about Pinterest, I joined to see what it was all about, I haven't really got into it much, but I love it. I signed up for Twitter before, and never really got anything from it, but I'm also very visual, so Pinterest is my kind of site. Anyway, just wanted to say, I probably wouldn't have done it if you hadn't written about it, so thanks.

I really appreciate your suggestion but it turn out I need to become a premium member to follow it. My New Years resolution is to become a premium member. I have to earn/save money for it though. I commit to finish all the free lessons available on this site but I just hope the money I earn would be enough to defray cost of the upgrade

I believe in the founder's vision of helping like me make it online. I do it not for myself but for the sake of my daughter who is in a financial strap right now and my 3 beautiful grade school children who are affected by the crisis. I believe in the power of prayers and the law of attraction. Happy New Year and abundant blessings to come your way.

Hello jatdebeaune, thank you for the follow. :) Your story is really fascinating. Do you sell art on etsy or deviantart? It'd be cool to see some of it if you don't mind sharing.

Also I am presently seeking feedback for my first training resource that I just published. It is covering the topic of mind mapping tools, specifically a free mind map tool I found called Mind42.com. It would be wonderful if you could look at it and give me some feedback on how to improve.

Here is the link:
https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/mind42-com-serious-mind-mapping-for-free

Are there any ways I can present the information in a more clear and/or concise manner?

How is my formatting and design layout?

Finally I noted that you place a lot of emphasis on personal organization. Do you have any tips or recommendations on how to personally organize my IM campaign? I have already been working to mind map it out, which helps immensely but that still leaves the actual 'taking action' part. :) I am primarily concerned with burn out.

Thanks for the follow, Joan. After three years of "not getting anywhere" and wasting tons of $$$, I made up my mind, "Quit buying all this junk". Everyone wants my money.
So, that's what I've done and I feel clean. The first thing that I did was to join WA as a free member. When commissions start to come in, I will upgrade. Also, I have cancelled a number of programs that were going nowhere. That feels good also.

Hello Jatdebeaune...we have a lot in common. I read you comment on Cashflow's Blog, "Voting!" I am worried to, but I do have faith in the principles our nation is founded on and we do have to fight for them. For me, it starts with my home and making a living at my passion. It is also art. I was a designer, illustrator, etc. Have written and illustrated a book, that I am almost done with. It is pretty unique and I have a unique approach with marketing it. Can I have you look at it when I am done?

I'd be honored. Happy to meet a fellow artist here. Living your passion is the way to go.

Yeah, I just feel stupid, because I can't understand, Yeah that comfort level thing, maybe some people are not cut out for this? I don't type so well and it takes me hours to write
the simplest things. I just don't get it I guess, and even though I did try I don't see it working for me right now, I have a bad attitude. I have a chip on my shoulder from being dealt a bad hand and I'm not doing the best I can to remain positive and focused, but honestly I don't think I can do this. Everyone is offering to help, but I can't point to anything in particular that is causing my confusion. I have build a website. I have studied all the key words I have created a small network, I have been open about what a challenge it would be, I knew it from the start. I so want to do this, I really do, but until I understand it better, until I actually get my hands into the process of creating something I will be uneasy. If you have any sort or advanced education or skills in a profession, you can tell that I'm just a dumb person, just by the way I write. I know that, because I spell horridly and I don't even know what a verb, conjunction, or an ad verb is. How can I do this with no basic language skills? I don't really think I know how to read sometimes?
I can't pay attention for more than about five minutes, and because I get frustrated by things I don't understand, that shouldn't be a reflection on this place. I don't blame anyone but myself. I so wish I could focus long enough to figure out what I'm doing and what the goal is in real terms. I know you all care, that is obvious. Maybe I don't really want to do this and I'm just grasping for straws? Six days till I have to decide anyway.

All that and not one specific question? If I made a webpage that did nothing but send people here to learn, I could make some money, right? I will call it Tired of looking for a
job. and out of work dot com. I wish I was smart enough to do this.

Thanks for your support

Mike, I wish I could assure you that I know exactly how you feel. I've been through that too. Internet Marketing is different from anything I have ever done, and yes, it is frustrating. You will find that some of the tasks are natural for you and you will sail through them. Other things you will prefer to farm out. It'll require some patience to get it all together.

Marketing online is basically communicating with and helping people in a niche that is fun for you. It could be about a hobby or the work you are doing right now to earn a living, that you can share with other people.

At the start, choose a niche that holds your interest. Choose what you know and love. For me it's design. For other people it is health and nutrition, dieting, bodybuilding, dating, forex, music, food, making money online, and so many other venues. The sky's the limit.

Start with the niche that excites you the most.

Affiliate marketing is basically marketing products (physical and digital products) within your niche. It's indirect selling, in that your objective is to help your audience which in turn will result in them buying your products. You "lead" them to the product through your influence: knowing your topic and the product. When people get to know and trust you, you'll make sales.

As far as WA is concerned, yes, you can put up a site about Internet Marketing and suggest people join WA, at least do the 10 day trial as a sampler. Know that the "make money online" niche is very competitive. That being said, if you really believe in WA as a place to learn, then go for it.

As far as writing is concerned, you write well. There are some people for whom English is their second language and not all of them are fluent. Can you imagine? Writing is a practice thing. The more you do the better you are. If you hate it, you can outsource it for not a lot of money, and focus on what you like to do.

If you really want this, I would stick with it for a few months before making up your mind. You don't have much to lose. May as well try it out.

Im inspired after reading your bio. Im so confused right now. Im struggling with first step and since Im a perfectionist its frustrating to not know something. I tink I will be one of those who bugs you with questions. Its only my 3rd day and so far Im convinced this will work but have no clue how. I dont even kno how to set up a website, I dont understand basic things. Im glad thats how you started too now I dont feel that dumb.
Reply
jatdebeaune Premium
Confusion is something everyone feels at first. Take it one step at a time. Follow the WA program as outlined so that you can see the process as a whole. Then focus on one aspect at a time, ie keyword searches, article writing, getting comfortable setting up sites, SEO. Don't stress out. If I can help, let me know. You will be learning something new all of the time. That's what's so great about this place and Internet Marketing. Do you know you can send private messages by clicking forum in the menu? You can communicate with fellow members in private.

Hi mymy, checked your blog and it looks very nice. There are just a few things missing that you need to include. You need a privacy policy, a contact, and an about page. People want to know something about the person behind the blog. It's very important for people to be able to make contact if necessary. They probably won't contact you, but it gives the blog more credibility. I would also put in a
disclaimer to protect you from lawsuits.

The more personable you can make your blog, the better. I found that I wanted to know more about you. People will take your advice once you establish your authority, such as your background, maybe a picture and a name. You can use a pen name and if you're shy about using your picture, you can make an avatar cartoon (a caricature).

I know white text on black is very chic, but it is hard on the eyes. You might want to reconsider it.

You did a nice job though. Looks good. Hope I've helped some. All the best to you with your site. Feel free to ask questions, if you want.

Yeah, I agree. I know there's a lot of old members who aren't participating. Who knows why. I know Jay, Steve, BigMan, and many other old members here in WA that plays an active role here at WA but it seems some others just don't. Thought I'd say great job reaching 6th spot in WA. ;) But more realistically, you actually have 3rd or 4th spot in WA since Kyle, Carson, and PotPieGirl don't budge from there positions. I think They're making it to where Training Guides you create & how many Followers you have are 2 most important factors to figuring rank I believe.

Hope you're doing great Joan & talk to you later. My offers still up for writing on your blog btw. I'd love to write for you a few times at least for free of course as a guest blogger. I don't know a whole lot about art & painting, but I can most certainly learn. :P

I've always had to market myself. But this is different. Delighted that you love the arts too. IM has also taken me away from painting, but as of the new year, it'll have to share me with painting and drawing. Can't abandon your one big love. Glad to be friends here. Any time I can help, just ask. All the best for a great new year.

Helps to be a bone head sometimes. IM is a challenging way to earn a living mostly because you have to be a total pioneer who is able to balance several skills at once. People can't really teach you how to do it, but you can put it together for yourself with ideas and skills you pick up in places like WA. One piece of wisdom from my failings is if it isn't working, then let it be and move on. The next thing will provide clues to what you need to do to make that last thing work. If not, just leave it and it'll get a life of its own. Wouldn't you just love to have all the money back that you spent on programs? Unfortunately, doesn't work that way. Best to you!

I'd be tempted to do what you did if I didn't have family here. CT tried once before with the sales tax and it was defeated. Now they managed to get it in. They're hurting their own residents, the dummies. CT people will buy directly from Amazon website and not pay sales tax.

Two different things. You can create a mini niche site, an e-commerce site, a store front site, an Amazon site, an EBay site, a review site. There are all kinds of websites and different templates and themes. A blog site is a blog site, but it can function as your website if you like. It's much easier to set up. Some people sell through their blog sites and never make a full blown niche site. I use my blog to develop a rapport with my customers by writing blogs about everything: personal, professional, about new products, hot tips, and there is a comment box so that they can ask me questions or make comments. It is in conjunction with one of my store front sites. You can start out with a blog and sell your products there. Just go into WordPress and read how to set it up. You can also do Blogger, which is Google. People here tend to like WordPress. I'm going to make a blog site with WordPress myself. Does that help?

Well I dont know about the cavities part haha, but these cells have been proven to regrow periodontal ligaments as well as jaw bone tissue AND teeth! Not to mention all the other possible benefits to treat diseases such as type 1 diabetes, alzheimers, parkinsons, leukemia and more. It really is the future, and to be able to obtain these cells from naturally recessive teeth is a convenient way to bank your stem cells and save for future use!

Hey Jat,
Glad to be buddies as well! I have a lot to learn, and it's been great so far! It's good to know I have some WA buddies close in the area to me! CT is very close.

As far as work goes, Bio banking can mean a lot of things, but what I do in particular is stem cell banking. Our company provides a service that removes stem cells from teeth! It's a really exciting field, and it's really starting to take off. If you would like to learn more, you can visit our site @ www.storeatooth.com

I hope you're enjoying this beautiful day, and we'll talk soon!

-Chris

Fascinating work! Does that mean that people will be able to regenerate their own teeth? And no more cavities?

Appreicate your honesty. Your story sounds so similair to mine. The up is that we get up each time we get tripped up ,dust off the knees and just keep on going. Going through the journey with the attitude of gratitude attracts amazing results.
Looking forward to our connection and learning,

Hi, and thanks for accepting the buddy invite...at this point I feel like I need all the help that I can get. Now as to your question..I did write and illustrate all 20 books and also they are copyrighted. I actually redeveloped them over for the second time so I could try and beat the pirating game. (advice from a venture capital consultant)

Thanks for commenting on my blog. Apparently google is giving a lot of people a hard time. I was suspended yesterday from adwords but my page made jumped from page 4 to page 1 spot 3 over night haha. So I am not sure if the changes they have made are working well for them or if they have simply made a mess out of their index.

Hi, thanks for the message. I agree. The sour part of my redundancy is that it is purely financial in the eyes of my ex employer. There is people keeping hir jobs who have a much lower skillset, therefore earn less and keep their jobs...

I know where you're coming from. Happening to a friend right now. He's one of the company's top performers, consequently earns more, and his job is being eliminated because they don't want to pay him. I don't know where this is all leading.

One more thing. On the product creation, you're looking for a full line of services/products that fit into the primary design of your campaign. So the primary design is the big topic. The full line of tangible and digital products are the sub-niches. I'm seeing that tangibles sell the best but if the digital content really strikes a very needed nerve in a very large target audience, that kind of help can be very lucrative! bkb2012

How are you doing today? The highest paid position on the planet can involve mastering ad copy (the written word)..., website design..., digital design..., and any area of Internet marketing you specialize in the most. The key is to combine a special skill in IM with closing. When you can close the business to seal solid deals, you will do very well. The biggest challenge is to zero in on an action blueprint you can trust. It has to show you how to scale your marketing upward...and it must be something only you can apply as a single business owner. The trouble with many guru blueprints is that "they're just selling stuff" not designed to support the single business owner doing all of the work. I believe...inside of WA, they're careful about delivering action plans WA members can leverage. I am working through Adsense further...and will stay in touch. It's slow...but it's very encouraging and it won't be difficult to implement once I get more of the needed tools/services in place. The key is to pull this work into the WA Blog & Funnel...if it's at all possible. If not, the learning will carry over to everything we do at WA. Hang in there! bkb2012...Barbara. I'm here...watching you and rooting for you!

Hi Barbara, Every part is an art to be mastered. That's why I think you have to specialize, at least tackle one thing at a time. I'm trying to master the art of keyword selection and using keywords artfully in articles and content.

Joan -- I'm glad you've joined Street Zines. It will be a very powerful addition to your traffic portion of the campaign! The key is to write massive #'s of articles. If you get stuck, let me know. I have been outsourcing some of my article content (for my sites residing outside of WA). In the meantime, I'm working through a Master Adsense Course...to share a proven, profitable blueprint w/you at a later time. In all marketing endeavors, we have to remain focused on our earliest campaign choices...but I'll let you know how profits are working out. The Adsense campaign requires only managing self in the work schedule. bkb2012...Barbara

Hello jatdebeaune! I have been "surfing" on WA space hoping to find good leads on how to move forward in this totally uncharted endeavor. Your posts have both substance and style. Appreciate your insights and God-given talents. More power to you! Wish me luck as I venture on. Thanks and have a great weekend.
Sincerely, Uncle Jojo

Hi Uncle Jojo, Welcome to the WA community! Thank you for your kind message. I do wish you much success in your IM venture. The best way to learn is through repetition. Just read the lessons over several times and keep reviewing until each thing is familiar. It does come together eventually. Happy to be buddies. J.

You can do it!

Not sure where you are in your marketing plan... but get going on Aweber or Get Response / email autoresponder and list building! Success rates go way way up with them!

I looked seriously at Get Response and Aweber only. Aweber seems to be the most universally integrated auto-responder with WordPress (which is what I use for most sites) so I went with that - after a LONG deliberation. You can import lists to Aweber with a little trial and error. Hope that helps.

Thanks Barry. How do you feel about Constant Contact? I started with them and think it might be difficult to switch out with my short list. Maybe not.
