About JeffreyMead1
Joined June 2018
Hello, I am a local police officer in beautiful northern Colorado. Some years back I started woodworking as a hobby and have found it to be very therapeutic. I have many local people around me having me make them a lot of things. I love working with my hands and would like to try and start selling items I make.

At this point I don't expect to make a large amount of money but I would like to be able to have funds to continue to buy more wood and tools.

I also have another website https://betterlifeaffiliates.com. It is a general well being website that focuses on products that improve the quality of life. Please feel free to check it out.

Hi, I just happened to see you tell someone in chat that you are from Colorado. I'm in Colorado Springs area, so I thought I'd take a moment to say hi.

It sounds like you love your hobby. I hope that you can monetize it enough to at least allow you to cover your tools and supplies. It sounds like you already have a good base of buyers.

Best wishes for a successful 2019.

Hi there, nice to meet someone in CO. I am about an hour north of Denver, about 15 miles east of Ft. Colllins. I have a hard time making things on the side. When I make things it's usually for a friend that wants something.
At night I don't have the energy to make anything so I like to play on WA.

Are you in farm country?

I sometimes purchase things from an auction in Eads. I also used to love to go the the livestock & hay auction in Fort Collins. Not so much this year. Although I was in Fort Collins last weekend picking up something I bought from an online auction.

WA is fun. WA is a lot cheaper than going to the auctions and paying for all the gas to get there.

Hi, Jeffrey.
Paul Here from up North in Canada.

I thought I would come over for a quick visit to say hello. Our paths crossed on another post (by Stephan) regarding copyright infringements.

Welcome to The Wealthy Affiliate Community. I like your idea of using your woodworking talents to make a little extra cash.

I trust that you are making out O.K. here.

Wishing you much success.

Hello, I've been with WA as a premium member since July this year. I haven't made a single penny yet. I have a bunch of articles indexed but have no idea where they rank. Jaaxy only looks at ther first page for letting you know rank unless you pay a silly amount per month. I don't use it often enough to pay that cost.
Hope your experience here have been good. It's really hard to get the number of posts high enough to get a decent amount of traffic.

Hi, Jeffrey.
I have been here for over two years now as a Yearly Premium Member and this year I took advantage of The Black Friday Special to lower my operating costs even further.

I am a former Professional Chef of over 35 years and my career came to an unexpected end due to some health and personal issues. As cooking was all I knew, this resulted in me looking for a new career. I finally found Wealthy Affiliate as the perfect match for what I needed and a perfect place to learn and train.

I have laid out a four-year plan of which I am in year three. I work at a much slower pace than most (because of my issues) but all is going as planned.

From experience, you are now just entering that stage in your evolution where if you have been adhering to the training offered here, you are going to start to see results in your traffic and google rankings.

Jaaxy is a great tool, and I agree with you that the upgrade is not necessary at this stage.

Try the following:
Go into an incognito or guest window and type in the same keywords that you typed in to Jaaxy and see what you get.

I created my first website back in late 2016 as an 'information only' site that warned people of a nasty Ponzi/Hyip Scheme. The purpose of that site was to create a subscriber list and also to test if a 'siterubix' site would rank on page 1.

The Results...over two thousand people (mostly victims of the scheme) on a mailing list and yes, 'Siterubix' sites can be ranked on page one (there is a trick that is hidden in plain sight). I stay in touch with the people on my list but have not bombarded them with any offers yet. I am building my trust within.

I am currently working on two sites at the moment for 2018 - 2019.

One promotes Wealthy Affiliate (A lot of work going into this one). So far I only have 5 Pages and 3 posts but all are ranked on page one for the various keywords.

The other site I will monetize next year mostly through Amazon. It will draw on my years of experience in the Hospitality industry to sell Kitchen & Dining Products and services.

Just give it some time and work at it on your own time, Jeffrey. The money investment is not that much to make in yourself. Everything else will fall into place over time.

If you would like me to have a look at your site, I would.

Let me know through PM or you could list your site to the right of your profile page here.

Wishing you the best.

Paul.

Hello Jeffrey, And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined 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 Jeffrey!

Wow, it was my dream to become a police officer! Actually, I just went for my testing a couple months ago... unfortunately didn't pass one of my written tests and I'm not sure if I still have a passion for it. Feels like the fire in me has died down!

I was an auxiliary police constable for 7 years, not sure if you guys have that in the States!

Anyhow, all the best!

Wow that's cool, where you from? It's pretty tough sometimes, especially now days with all the hate. Seems it's becoming more accepted to shoot at cops.

I'm from Toronto, ON.

It is tough, so many people are targeting cops all around the world! It's terrible! Stay safe on the road!

The most I've had happen during a detail was during one of those R.I.D.E. spot checks late at night. This one night I did it, there were so many hot shots over the radio and it was all happening around the area we had things set up. 2 suicide attempts and an open fire somewhere, yikes! Detail for auxiliaries got short. My partner and I sat in the cruiser for like 10 minutes and the officers who we assisted were like, you two better head back to the station and call it a night!

Haha! It was fun while it lasted even though we almost got run over by this guy who claimed he didn't see us - yeah right.

This was my day....0600, dispatched to suicide by hanging. Spent hours there. Did some paperwork and then went to a fatal car vs. Semi accident in the country. Poor old lady was hit in the doors by a semi. I stood in a ditch filled with water with other cops and firefighters trying to keep the car from rolling into to it while firefighters cut the doors and roof off to get the elderly female out.

That's a lot to see in a day and I'm sure there are other days where you'll see even more. Dang, gotta be super tough to be a cop lol!

Well, I gotta wait till December before I can write my test again. I have yet to get back to my fitness training, that test is so... grrrrr! Actually, I just hate the shuttle run part... the pursuit circuit is fine.

Do you guys have to go through some written tests and a physical fitness test before applying?
Reply
JeffreyMead1 Premium
Lmao..... yes we do. Google law fit for police.
I joke because this is what we should do.
is how we prepare for law fit.

LOL! I hope any officers who do this will keep it in the station, hahahaha!

But man, if only it was that easy lmao

Lmao, I sent that to my Lieutenant and he keeps laughing about it and sending it to others.

Hi,

I want to welcome you to WA’s premium membership. This was a huge decision you made which should help you succeed as a successful online business owner by taking your business to the next level.

I can remember when I went to premium membership back in September, 2009. This was a decision I have never regretted. As a premium member you have access to additional WA resources which are very helpful to your success. I like the weekly live Webinars at 5 PM Pacific by Jay Neill. These weekly webinars have been very helpful to me and my online business.

I want to wish you all the best as you become a very successful online marketer. Please share your success with the WA community.

Best wishes,
George

Thank you, still not sure how I'm going to make money with having a niche. I'll continue through the lessons but i'm a little frustrated after paying for premium and the next lesson takes you straight to paying for a domain name.
Reply
Godsmack12 Premium
No worries you don't have to buy a domain name right now. But believe me it's very cheap.
As you move forward you will see how your niche will make you money by adding affiliate links to your posts. Have you picked a niche?
Have no worries we all started new
Just have patience follow the courses and don't skip around.
Ask lots of questions and be an active part of the community we're like family and we strive to help each other achieve success.
Do not feel like your going to be asked to pay for this and that it's not how it works the only thing other than the premium is a domain name when your ready. Everything you will need to get your site up and running is included. Enjoy the Journey and reach for the stars.

Yeah but looking at the keywords the are a lot of Woodworking sites out there. The idea I have will hopefully need different.

There are a lot of sites out there for everything, but not getting you to far ahead your going to learn how to work in your niche at lower ends and not compete with the higher traffic sites

Hello! Jeffrey,

Welcome to WA, Congratulations! I'm here if you need anything so don't hesitate to ask.

You found a fantastic place to build your business online. What WA gives you is the tools you need to build a profitable online business. WA has many members making a substantial living from home.

What it takes for you to get there is commitment, work, and dedication. You do want to set at least 10 hours a week on building your business. Each day, hour and minutes you dedicate to your business will bring you that much closer to what you want to achieve.

You want to start your journey on the right path. The first thing you want to do is, add a picture. If you don't want to add a picture of yourself you can use one of WA's or one you have.

You also want to say little bit about yourself. if you're a little shy, It could be something simple like, I want to start my own online business, or you can be open and let us know a little bit more.

I say this because besides Kyle, Carson and me, WA has a fantastic community of entrepreneurs of like minded people that are there to help you. I don't want you to get stuck. The more people who are there to support you when needed the closer you are to achieving your goals.

To begin, take advantage of the Getting Stared courses in Green (level 1). These are task base courses that will get you going daily.

Here is the link. I want to let you know, if you decide to become a Premium member within the first 7 days, you will get a 59% discount on your first month. (This is what I call a heroic action bonus.)

Anyways, I thought I would introduce myself and if you have any questions I'm here for you. It is a pleasure to have you in our WA community!

Your Friend,

Evelyn :)
