About Johncruz
Joined March 2010
Hey everyone, I'm John and I am a work at home dad.

I served in the U.S. Army, held a regular job, and took a couple of classes in college before I found myself here at Wealthy Affiliate.

Just like most of you, I wanted more time with my family and this whole military thing was not going to allow that to happen.

I knew there was more to life than following the norm and now I can proudly say that I am a stay at home dad and I couldn't ask for a better "job".

For those of you that are still trying to find a way to make money online, just know that you are in probably the BEST online marketing platform to ever exist.

I look forward to working with all of you, so please take action and you will see results just like everyone else.

Hi John, pls help,
I am taking a domain name now, I know it's highly recommended to use .com or .org or .net, I wanted to use .ch because this is what most companies in Switzerland use and I want my business to be link with my Country Switzerland, Please do you think its a good idea?.

Still go with the .com Alphonsus as they will still be able to find you no matter what. Remember that your target audience is the world and not just Switzerland so you want to have it with the .com.

Thanks John for your help always.
I really want to have a .com but I already got a domain yesterday with a .ch,
I want to change it from .ch to .com because kyle just said that my ranking will only count in my local country... I really want it changed to .com because I want my site to be ranked world wide.
You think that is still possible?
Thanks a lot John

You will have to get a whole new domain man, but it is very well worth it.

...did you say it worth it to get a new domain?
Always thanks for helping
Reply

Yes, it is worth getting another domain. You want to target the online world and not just one country no matter where you're from.

1) I am ready to get a new domain, but what I have already is a year domain, are they not going to be charging me for rest of the year even if I have another site.
2) How do I go about creating the new domain so that I don't complicate the whole thing again please.
3) How do I transfer my Rebixsite to my paid domain.
Hope am not asking too much or disturbing you with my problems.
Thanks a lot

Hi all! G'day mates! I just joined and it will take me a lot of time to get it through and understand all of it. Yes, I know, I know, you all are here to help! Thanks got for that!
The first question is: will I be able to promote my own art pieces in here? There will be some ink drawings, oil paintings, watercolours and similar...
?

You sure can John (nice name btw) but the main focus here is to really promote things that you don't own so you won't have to deal with shipping or any of that stuff. Go through the first few lessons and you'll see exactly what I'm talking about.

Hi John I am new to this, and based in Sydney "Gday mate" as we say over here. I have to head out into the traffic, but will go through the lessons and see how it all works, I have various interests like nutrition, Fitness and Religion - I am a Christian and quite interested in Christian apologetics, probably most passionate about apologetics, then nutrition and fitness, not sure where to start, but hopefully will pick it up as I go along... thanks for connecting John..

Hey John,
Thanks for leading me to this site! I don't even know how I found your page but it's just one of those serendipity things I guess. I'm in the process of narrowing down my niche and coming up with a name for my site. I have a feeling I'm overthinking it. How important is it to get it right the first time -- I'm thinking I'd like a name that I can build into a brand over time but I think that thought is stopping me from moving forward. Thanks for any insights!

Throw some ideas at me and we'll get it right the first time, lol. Don't worry, I didn't completely understand that part either, but I still made money. In the end, it's going to be your content that makes you money and not your domain. However, this is YOUR brand and we want to make it something you like and can showoff to your friends, lol. SO throw some ideas at me and we can go from there.

Interesting point about showing it off to my friends, as that's always been my stumbling block -- getting personal with a blog -- it's scary to me. My niche is in the Law of Attraction space. I'm still narrowing it down and it may be specifically about how to use LOA principles to pull out of depression and live a life of joy and gratitude. But is that too narrow? I assume general LOA is too broad. Your thoughts on that?

Anyway, quick question - I assume if I sign up for the $19 premium deal I can cancel it after a month (I have lots of questions I'd rather be private with), go back to Starter membership, then when I'm ready to go premium again at the full price?

I think the depression thing is perfect actually. About the membership...if you go premium you can't go back to the starter membership, sorry. It's very much worth it though Jeannie and I know some of us can't really afford it, but just remember what you came here for in the first place and that will make all the difference.

It's a really small investment that can and will be paid off in no time. If of course you're working on your site and all that good stuff. You're doing great so far, so keep at it and you will get to where you want to be.

Thanks for the feedback and the new info on membership.

I noticed on the other comment that you couldn't see the site -- maybe you typed it in wrong?

myhappyplace . siterubix . com

typed it with the spaces for the purposes of being accepted in this message, of course take the spaces out when you go there.

Thanks!

Good morning John, I've just finished reading your blog post on Kyle getting you a new car! I must say I really enjoyed reading that post. That's especially noteworthy because I hate reading! When I found WA I must admit I have my reservations, because of having been burned so many times before! But your post has given me so much hope. I promise to you that I will allow myself to go through the process, and do the work. I'm 51 years young but having said that, I don't have time for BS, I want this to work for me, like last year! So, grabbing inspiration from you I will propel myself forward with no looking back. I truly hope to contact you some day in the future with my success story!

This will work for you man just as long as you don't give up. I truly do hope that you contact me about your success too and also don't be afraid to ask me for any help. You will make big things happen my friend, so just keep moving forward. WA is really amazing and it's great to see that you've finally found it!

Hey John ... I know you are a good friend of Scott's (aka. Scottdogg187) who introduced WA to me. I think you earned your first SAC invitations back in January with Scott.

I thought I was already following you, but I guess not ... so I am now if that's ok with you.

Hi John,
I was googling on the internet for "How to make money using affiliate marketing" and your website appear on one of the pages. I then read through your website and found out you are also one of the WA members here. Thereafter I do a search on our WA platform and found your profile page here. Glad to know you here and wish to learn from your success journey here.

John, I'm about ready to share my site with my social media contacts, but I'm a bit nervous. You remember what I said about the stigma and all that. So, If I'm going to do this, I want to do it right. Would you mind reading over my site and passing on some suggestions? I changed the site to BipolarAndAlive.com, thanks

johncruz Premium
Site looks really good man and I didn't even know you were that far along. Good job there. I was actually reading over some of your content and I even learned some stuff. Have you created a FB Fanpage? You should do that and share it on there as well. Don't be nervous man, there are people that will enjoy what you have on your site.
