About JBattaglini
Joined December 2017
I've tried many online things before, was scammed a couple of times and many more have been attempted - but I wised up! Now I'm here thanks to John's recommendation and hoping this will work out. I'm not working right now and I hope that eventually, I'll never have to rejoin the rat race! I'm a computer guy, guitar player and general music freak, among other things. Hoping to add "Successful Online Businessman" to that soon. Any help that I can get would be appreciated, since basically, I'm still a "newb".

Hello and welcome to Premium. This website is full of wonderful helpers and I have learnt to always search above, the answer is usually in someone's free training. Aside from the Certification and Bootcamp courses there is heaps of training. check out the classrooms and video classes on the left hand side. Enjoy Wealthy Affiliate. It is a wonderful community

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! :)

Hi, John. Yes...I actually posted the niche question in the community, but I haven't had any responses yet that I can find. My 2 big interests and passions are electric guitar (I've been playing most of my life) and the equipment that goes with it (effects pedals, amplifiers, cables, etc.) and computers; I really enjoy the building, troubleshooting, upgrading of them. I've also done a lot of research into nutrition, especially supplements, in the last year or so and have become knowledgeable in it. So with these things in mind, I've at least narrowed my scope; I'm just having trouble deciding which road to take. While I realize that it takes time to really get going in this field, I was hoping that I could start off with as much of a bang as I can manage, especially given that I won't be able to upgrade to Premium for awhile due to financial constraints. So, I was wondering if you could give me an idea of which of these would make the best start, knowing that I can always expand later and/or take the other roads once I get this first step mapped out. Any advice you could give me would be appreciated, thanks.

I think the building of computers is going to be the less competitive and most profitable. You can build out a site on something like upgradingcomputers.com and then that alone can cover almost anything within that given niche. Just ask yourself if that's something you can see yourself talking on and on about and decide from there. Either way, these are all great starts and whatever you choose might not be your last, so just go with your gut and start building the foundation for your business.

Hey Jim,

I forgot to mention the other day that I am going to still be offering you my awesome bonuses if you join within the next 4 days.

Here are the bonuses that you are going to be getting:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)
(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there. Where else can you access the CEO of the company for help?
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well Jim and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)

I'm sorry Kyle, but nothing has changed for me financially. I still don't have the money to upgrade to Premium. I appreciate the extension, but until I actually get work - which I believe that I'm one of the kinds of people that would most benefit from this program, as I recall - I won't be able to upgrade either.

PS - at least I'm not sick like I was and my wife is out of the hospital. Hopefully, I can get some more of the training done.

If you don't have the budget to upgrade at the moment, that is completely fine. You should work through the Getting Started training (within the "Get Started Here" button in the menu) and take action.

By lesson 4 you are going to have your own niche website up and running. This is the starting point of your business and is the foundation that is going to lead you to success down the road.

When you are ready to upgrade, I know you are going to absolutely love it but at your own pace.

PS. I hope you are having nothing short of an awesome week Jim! :) Chat soon!

No problem at all Jim, it is great to have you here at WA and I absolutely look forward to working with you and seeing you progress in the coming days, weeks, and months ahead.

I am connected to WA throughout the day, so if you ever have any questions let me know. I am always around! :)

Hi, Kyle. I see that I still have 2 days to take advantage of the first month discount. I got a break today and so I am wondering: can I use a prepaid Gift Card for it and then, once I've paid down my regular credit card, register it for every month thereafter? I really want to upgrade so that I can take advantage of all the Premium benefits. Please let me know as soon as you can.
Thanks,
Jim

Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. Often times they won't work simply because it is a recurring payment (monthly recurring) so you may want to test it to see if it works.

Let me know if you do have any issues though.

Ok, thanks Kyle!

Here we are, 10 days into your experience at WA. :)

I hope things are going well Jim! I want to remind you of one thing, your hard work and dedication IS going to pay off. Keep working through the training, communicating within the community, and of course, ask for help when you need it.

Just heading out for a bit here, but do leave me a message if you need a hand with anything. You should have Premium communication back for an additional 7 days now, so hit me up when you get a chance Jim!

Just wanted to shoot you a quick message and see how things were going thus far Jim? I am here to help if you ever need a hand with anything, just holler!

PS. Also, quick reminder. Today is the last day to get your first month discount/bonuses. No rush, no worries. Just a simple reminder here. :)

Actually, I'm getting more confused with every "lesson" beyond the first. I have asked a couple of questions but only within the last hour. I'm tired now which doesn't help, and my wife is in the hospital, so I have not had much time to devote to this, which doesn't help either. I know that I asked one question to the community; I'm not sure about the other. I only know that every stage I go through here is raising more questions that it is really answering. And the thing about Blogs really isn't about blogs at all, as far as I can tell. While the information there would be useful down the line a ways, it seems to me that the subject matter is premature for a newbie like me at this point. So, yes - I'm feeling very "stuck" right now.

What's up Jim!

It's John from the Work at Home Jobs site, in case you didn't remember!

I just thought I'd not only welcome you, but also help you get started on the right track so that you're not confused with anything like you probably already are.

First off, you'll want to put a pic up (preferably of yourself) and say a little something about you so it can be easier for others to help you, which you can do by clicking on the little square with a question mark up on the right.

Starting out, there are only 2 things you really need to know.

1. People who TAKE ACTION by asking questions and interacting within the community are much more likely to be successful and learn this stuff faster than someone who joins and does nothing.

2. The level 1 certification course will explain the process of how to make money online and you should have a pretty solid foundation built by the end of this course as well.

By lesson 4 you should have your first site up and running, which I'm sure you'll find to be an accomplishment on its own.

Click the link below to get started on your first lesson and you'll be on your way. Also don't forget that if you have any questions, you can respond to this message and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

I hope this helps Jim and welcome to the wonderful community here at WA!

Your friend,

John

Definitely take your time Jim as this is not a race. Get a better understanding of everything and you’ll see exactly how things work before committing to anything. It’s great to have you here though and I’m looking forward to working with you more especially with a fresh year coming up!
