I'm James - U can call me Jim, Jimbo, Jimmy, Jimbob or bob for short! lol. I know it makes no sense!

Here's a link to all my training...

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/jim-bo/training

I'm also Yoda, and Spock. I'm also James T Kirk. I'm Spongebob squarepants and Alan Partridge. When I'm in any particular mood while on WA I change my profile images accordingly - to match my mood. lol. It's all just for fun.

Who says building websites, chatting to affiliate marketers and bloggers, making money online through commissions etc MUST be mundane?

I like to mix it up a little bit and add a splash humour to any situation I can...if I can...It's in my spirit to make the best of things as they are and how we know they are going to be...

"Ahaaaaaa! Back of the net! Kiss my face! Cashback!"
from I'm Alan Partridge"

I'd like to kiss my face, I've tried many times - but I can't quite reach - LOL....

I'm trying now - can you kiss your own face? Ahaaaaa!!!!
...
Stop now...you're making me laugh and my ribs are hurting! I nearly coughed up a hernia!

CHECK OUT MY TRAINING VIDEOS (bottom right of my profile), They're FUNKY and FUN!!! https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/jim-bo/training

I'm just a 44 year old ordinary guy with two lovely kids and a scrumptious Filipino wife. We are living and working in South East Asia (Thailand) as English teachers.

Well, technically speaking my wife does not teach English, she teaches maths (the hard stuff) using the English language. A whole different kettle of fish to just teaching English.

Having just had some level of success with WA I would like to impress upon you that you must follow the training to a T and most importantly - create some quality content. It takes time, it can take a long time just to reach your first dollar. Actually, if I had made just one cent instead of 1 dollar, I would STILL feel like I'd won the lottery.

Let me elaborate...

If you are smart enough to put all the pieces together by following the lessons here at WA - and you can get to that first 1 cent, or dollar or whatever your first commission is, then I know you can then work out HOW you got that and what it was exactly that you did right.

Alls you gotta do AFTER that first commission is to examine what happened to get it. narrow it down to what got that commission and learn how to scale up that.

___________________________________________________________

I would like to find a way (or ways) to support myself and family from home on the internet. Since I am prevented from working now because of health reasons I decided to make a real go of it online.

I can do this gig at home AND look after the kids when my wife is at work. But as a result of that we are on a bare minimum income and we have to be extremely frugal, creative and resourceful to get by.

I'm not too greedy a type of person but of course I would love to be the first trillionaire affiliate marketer like anyone else would like to be.

I would be pleased to reach my first (financial) target of $100 a month.
I would be very pleased to reach $500 a month.
I would be well chuffed with $1000 a month.
I would be over the moon with $2000 a month.
I would be amazingly super dooper gobsmacked if I managed $5000 a month.
I would be STUNNED if I got to $10,000

And dare I say it?

I would probably drop dead of a heart attack if I made more than $10,000 a month. That truly would be an insane amount of money for a little pauper like me. I ain't ever been rich, wealthy, well off - etc.

_____________________________________________________________

I'm just a working class bloke who is sick and tired of the 9-5 and dumb ass bosses with an IQ of 85 telling me what to do. You know that feeling? When you just know that your boss is a complete moron and you think...

"what the heck is going on here? This can't be right, can it? Has he got that position as boss just because he brown nosed the right people or something? Well I tell you now, mister boss man, I ain't brown nosing anyone...let alone a complete and utter imbecile such as you sir. No way Jose!

I ain't gonna find success in that kind of environment cos I am stubborn. I refuse to brown nose anyone - everyone is equal in my book. I kneel before nobody and I don't expect anyone to kneel before me. Fair enough mindset?

Respect is important though. refusing to brown nose someone is not my way of disrespect. It is my way of saying, I'm your equal and you are equal to me. So there will be no brown nosing and agreeing with you just to keep a job. I got my standards and I uphold myself to them. Period.
_____________________________________________________________

Phwooooarrr, Waddya reckon you guys back in dreary old England, eh? Lol.

It is great to be here in Thailand - the sun, the low cost of living - the spicy cuisine, cheap beer and much more than that too. A different world to England, and English culture. But too darned hot. You can't have everything can you?

You see your home country in a different light when you leave it behind......
When u visit again u get culture shock, you think "It's all BARMY, ALL OF IT!!!" know what I mean folks?

I honestly think that all cultures are barmy - so nobody can claim any right to be offended by that remark I just made. For the remark was aimed at all of mankind including myself - we are indeed a laughable species - look at the state of the world.

Hi Jim-Bo. It's me again. I took your advice and got the Social Locker plug-in. I went through all the instructions on your video, however, it locked all my pages instead of just the one I wanted. When I wrap the link around the material I wish to lock, it doesn't work. My material is still there and the lock is on the top of all my pages. Any advice? I deleted it got my site back to normal, but want to download it again and start over. It's such an amazing plug-in! I also tried Social Locker-Locker Cat, but the same thing happened. Also, when I DO get it right, do I just post an ad with the link to my web site page with the lock..on FB and Twitter? Thanks for any help you can give me!

You would just post the url of the page or post that the locked content resides on. Anyone visiting that url would have to unlock the content to get access. This starts a chain reaction, they have to share it to unlock. The process repeats. This is why it's known as viral marketing.

Thanks for networking with me. I am now following you, too.

You seem like a super-high-energy guy, and it would be so great if that energy was transferable, or even bottle-able. You could then be a trillionaire, and quickly, too. I know I could sure use some of it. :)

Best wishes to you for your continued/future success!

Hello Jim

I intend to build a website that guides visitors to online outlet direct sales companies that focus on various kinds of products and since I am not focusing one product such as say " how to loose fat belly in 30 days" rather being an affiliate to more companies, I am stuck with getting the right name that will result in getting higher Average and Traffic.
Reply
Jim-Bo Premium
okay

make sure if you use the word lose in your domain name that you make sure it is spelled correctly, though.

loose means "not tight"

lose means "lose weight" or "lose money" or "lose something"

Working class, council estate, work hard for...ah! You get the picture LOL.

I love exactly where you are coming from, life is waaay too short for mediocrity and seriousness.

Did you mention cheap beer?

Sorry, I digress...

Well.. I am an IT guy at heart.. and I have also studied Marketingmanagement & Publishing (Bachelor). As I work nightshift I got a lot of time extra on me, so I decided to go into WA. In my off hours/days I also got plenty of time, so felt that WA was right for me. I ran a webhosting business before and programmed many websites, ran a lot of servers (web and email), registered a lot of domains.
And otherwise I am just learning a lot about marketing and psychology.

I once had math phobia so bad...I won't tell that story here. I finally went back to school, late in life and took Algebra 101. I was just lucky that I had a teacher who taught with humor. My mind relaxed and I ended up getting a high grade! Thanks for all of your work and I hope to carve out some time to study your trainings. Looks like I will be needing them! Great to have found another teacher with humor!

Regarding your disappearing sitemap ...
Recently I have had issues with my personal blog and, if you read my post here today (about SSL certificates) than you'll know I'm not stringing you along.

I too got upset with my my hosting server in Toronto because my personal blog was issuing a Resource Limitation Reached website temporarily unavailable ... and I have to admit, I lost it.

This isn't the first time this issue has happened to me and I even threatened to leave their hosting.

They are investigating ... however ... what I DID find out today is that scripts are being added to the Apache servers right now in anticipation of the SSL certificates.

Now I'm thinkin' this may be what's causing my personal blog issue ... though this remains to be seen as of yet.

Jim, sometimes you need to step back a bit and take a fresh look at what you are doing. I had a quick look at your sites and they seem pretty good so you are definitely doing something right.

Do you know anyone in your area who builds websites and can come and talk to you at your computer. I was having trouble with something and I do find a lot of help here isn't quite put forth in a manner that I find logical. The information is there but I just can't seem to pull it out.

I have a chap who is helping me out in finishing off my house. One day we were chatting and computer programming came up. I was probably bitching about some hiccup I was having. It turned out he had been a programmer for years. He stopped in on the way home and my problem was fixed in about 5 minutes. I think he regrets telling me about his pre-building life as I now keep asking him questions!

Never give up on something you like. Just take a look at your approach to it. As for Google, I don't understand why that is a problem for you as it should be standard across the world. But what do I know.

Chin up James

High Jim - Bo here is a little incite on why you get a boss with an 85 IQ The people above want harmony in their business, they want business to be carried out, now if you have a person that can think well he or she is thinking if we changed this or that things would be better. No instead you are required to do what ever the upper level want's so you pick put some one that cant think, link a title to it and you get what you want no questions asked. I worked for a construction company the Supervisor would look at all the labor's and pick out the laziest one there and make him a pusher telling him that if he didn't keep the rest of the people busy he would be down there himself working with them. Worked every time.

I have a friend that works at my home golf course he goes by the name of Jimmy and I like the sound of it. With your permission, I'm going to say, Jimmy, I like your post. It portrays you as a humble man that wants ALL the marbles in the world.
The reason I love it is that of my personal knowledge of the God that I serve (this is not to evangelize anybody). Throughout His Letter to me, (The Bible) I never come across where He condemns people asking for MORE. And I have to say that it appears you operate off that principle. Whatever it is, Jimmy, I like your attitude. Thanks. Oh, and thanks for the invite to follow.

It's not the first time someone's suggested I should be a stand up comedian...lol

but...

It's not something that can be switched on by demand, so I couldn;t see myself being on stage and switching into comedy mode. I'm a comedian simply because I like the feeling it gives me when people laugh. If you were to plonk me on stage I would probably get stage fright!

besides, I can't stand up right now because of my sciatica! It hurts like hell. I would have to be a sit down comedian.

Last night I almost wet the bed because I couldn't get out of bed for over an hour, that's sciatica for you. :(

tags are for better navigation of your website for visitors, if I am correct. Don't take that as gospel though, I don't know nearly as much as you think I do, lol. I've still got heaps to learn.

Jim-Bo, thanks so much for the follow. I love your zany humor as I have it too! You have been busy here!

Both my grandsons met their girlfriends when my daughter moved to Thailand for 2 years and they went to school there. Both girls are from here, one from the same area they live in now again. Funny how they went so far to meet them!

No sweat, buddy! Nobody notices these things cos it's so busy...I follow gazillions of people a day and to expect all of them to know instantly and reciprocate in kind, would be asking too much, besides, there are far more important things to do than "follow" people and write messages to them. We'd have to spend all day just doing that to keep up, how would we build a business if we did that all day?

Don't sweat it!

Jim, Jimbo, James Jimmy, All of you! I'll say you're not a dull guy void of color and personality. You are an energetic person as well. I'm thinking that if you put all that into your niche coupled with your English skills, you can't go wrong. I'm interested to see where you take this. Hopefully we'll both be on top of our dreams in a short minute!

Good luck.

Hey Jimbo,
Wow, now that's a profile! Love the way you think...adding humor makes anything more fun...and definitely agree with the brown nosing part....I'd rather not have one either, probably why I've never been an "employee of the month" in all the years I've worked the same 9-5, lol.
Thanks for following me awhile back....here I thought I'd followed you already, but now I see that I hadn't, so I had to fix that! Anyways, I'll see ya around here....
Best wishes :) ~Sherry

Live long and prosper Jim-Bo!

I beamed onto your profile on a Spock day, so the above seemed appropriate. Beamed in the Star Trek sense and the smile that appeared reading your words.

Totally agree with the barmy statement, and pretty much everything else you've written.

It has given me food for thought, as I just wrote a blog post about having a moment of doubt on my site's content. You have made me see clearly what I should do to move forward.

Even though, I'm not going to elaborate at this time, I want to thank you for that.

All the best to you Yoda!
'Much to learn, you still have.' You to me.

Hi Jimbo, I am an ex-pat too living in Adelaide, Australia and I know just what you mean when you say that you view the country you came from in a different light when you leave. I shouldn't really call myself an ex-pat, I'm now an Australian, naturalised, and only go back to the UK for a visit when funds allow (not very often) Good luck in your endeavours.

Hi Jim-Bo

Thanks for following. I hope all your goals on here come true for you.

I am not sure how long I will last, thanks for the advice. I don't know if I can afford the mthly membership, or if this is something I could do without struggling from where I am and where I want to be, and if this is the way for me???

Good luck!

Believe me, Christina, I live in Thailand, am unemployed due to a dislocated hip and bad sciatica, I am relying on my wife's meager income, she's a filipino teaching maths here, her salary is what I would call exploitative, we have big debts with a hostpital, due to our son being born 3 and half months premature, I've got visa and passport problems...I couldn't afford NOT to go premium and put in all my efforts. It's now (beginning) to pay off. It takes time for sure, but I promise you that if you find a way to do it too, that you will thank yourself in a few months or a year from now. Remember this also, how fast does a year pass? I feel like I started here last week, not last year.

If I'd not had my own specific problems, and I'd progressed at my full potential speed, I have no doubt i would have broken the 1000 dollar a month barrier by now. And it can grow each month.

Find a way, Christina...U must for yourself and your family...even part time. What is it? About a dollar a day just over? that's not much considering what you get for that money. You will not find a better system online. WA is the best by far.

Good luck whatever you do!

Thanks Jim-Bo, your situation is hard, and you are overcoming the challenges.

Good points you make.

I can't guarantee that I will commit to this, as I need to clear my head and do some back up de-cluttering.

I admire you and others who are making this work for you.

At present I will need to re-think my situation, and not get over my head in monthly commitments with a job that is not secure, I don't think it is the time for me now.

You are on the right track, as it is paying off.

Good on you.

Cheers

Jimbo,
Thanks for the following. You are quite funny! I am right there with you on the health thing. I just spent two years fighting for my life with breast cancer. We have had NO INCOME for the last two years, and I have got to make this work or we will be on the street. That is a scary thought, especially at our age. I am 63 and my husband is 75. Also, we have never been rich. We have been comfortable a few times in our lives, but bad things always seem to happen. Hopefully both of us can reach our goals in a short amount of time. Good luck to you and your family. Take Care. Connie

Hi James, welcome to WA! Your search has led you to a resourceful community of learning, support, feedback, and comments. You have a very bold and eye catching header on your site! Just checked out canva.com myself.

Your persevering attitude with your son and your own adversity has already shown you are a resourceful person. Your job loss is another door open. From experience it's scary...but a refreshing opportunity. Looking forward to hearing of your future progress!

Hey James, nice to meet you and thanks for the follow my man. Following you back. Glad to see your little man is prospering! Wishing you all the very best of luck here at WA. Unfortunately James I haven't found a quick and easy online money making method thus far or I would share it with you. My only advice is, I know you are in the right place to learn how to make money online but it takes time and effort. Most of the people telling you of their fortunes on youtube have taken years to get to where they are. In most cases probably loosing fortunes learning! ;))
Cheers

Bob we are cut from the same cloth. I started two days before you and I am also an English teacher in Brazil. I found this offer online and only had $20 left to spend. That was all that is left in my Paypal account. I need to make $49 before Aug 4th to stay in the program. Want to team up? I have been working my ass off. Still have made not money but I will. My website is 10 days old and I have made contact with one person. Doesn't sound like much but I know if I get one...well you know the rest. Go read my post Time is not short, Only life is. I am not a Sunday golfer but Kyle tells me I'm here to get help and help others. I don't know if it will help but you never know. Just remember "Time is not short only life is.

Hi James!
Im sorry your little lad arrived too early but looks like all thats behind him now, he's a little cutie :)
Looks like you've had fab advice already but yea, just follow the training and reach out to the community when you get stuck......which you will trust me. Its all part of your journey :) ive had an answer within minutes before now. The folks here are amazing!
Try yoga for your siatica. It will help you to destress. Your challenges right now will be antagonising it.
My son has travelled in Thailand twice. He says the people are amazing ( apart from the one who sacked you of course)
Keep moving forward and you will do well here! :)

Hello James ... thank you for the follow. Stay focused on the Getting Started Training. It is only the tip of the WA Iceberg. There is so much more to learn and do below the water line.

I know you feel a sense of urgency, but I'm being honest when I say this may cause you so much anxiety that it will get in the way of your progress. There is a steep learning curve here at WA, especially for a newbie.

I wish you the best on your WA journey.

yes, I do feel a sense of urgency, lol. But I aint giving up until I make it big time! By the way BIG time for me would be 1000 dollars a month from online pursuits! Thanks NWTDennis!

Hello Bobtosh
I do not think making a hundred dollas a month is too high a figure. But i do think if you utilize the tools being taught and the community as your backup i'am sure you can do much better than hundred dollas. I believe that you can do better just use everything WA has to offer o.k. keep in touch

Actually I am a little stuck with jaaxy and how to apply the same principles Kyle used in my own niche which is tech reviews BTW.
I am not too mathematically proficient and jaaxy seems to involve a lot of numbers and keyword combinations. I found similar difficulties with grasping googles own brand of keyword tools or planner I think it is called.

Hi James. I would suggest you do every bit of training you can find in WA that is available to you as a starter member.
You would also need to list your site name under the appropriate tag under your WA profile, and also sign in to the comments area (siterubix top left) to get the community to review your work so far.
As soon as you can, join Premium membership and then do all of the training.
Keep on track and keep plugging away. Holler if you need help.
Go well from Janelle

Welcome, Bob. I hope you get some medical help with that chronic sciatica; I used to suffer from that too. This is a great, encouraging community here at WA. If you have questions, please ask. As to the questions in your last paragraph, start working the bootcamp courses; they will guide you what to do and how to do it cheaply. Your goal is modest and doable, just a matter of your choice of niche, products, keywords, and developing content. Blessings!

Hey thanks for following and welcome to WA! The quickest way to get to that $100 a month goal is the Affiliate Bootcamp. However, as a newbie, you will want to rely heavily on the training and ambassadors to help support those you bring in. Just be patient and give your site time to mature and grow. Be sure to add your site name to your profile so we can see it and check it out.

Hi there James and thanks for following me, I've followed you back.

Very easy to become overwhelmed here but if I had just a couple of tips it would be to just start at the beginning of the green button top left, follow each module as presented to you without missing any steps and ask if you get stuck........which you undoubtedly will!!

You'll soon get some answers from within this wonderful community but don't get too sidetracked if you can possibly help yourself as it can become addictive and you'll find yourself stalling a bit.

All the very best James

Hi Bobtosh! Thank you for the follow. I've been in WA for a bit more than a month. Am still developiing my first domain which I keep saying and hoping will be ready for prime time soon. I know a lot of new WA members go through Bootcamp where you learn to set up a site touting WA. The commission payments are reviewed in the 1st lesson and they look good. Am thinking that it might be a faster and more rewarding beginning. Nice to meet you. Best wishes for great success.
