About JohnDZ
Joined January 2019
I am in my 40's and from South Africa. My home language is Afrikaans. Been most of my life doing some IT related work for small companies: from desktop support, hosting domains/email, networking/cabling/routing, CISCO networks and the list goes on. Job security is low in South Africa and you go wherever you can find a job. I am now far removed from IT for the past 4 years. Therefore I been wanting to start a business online since my 30's - failed in many MLM attempts before (Golden Products, Herbal Life, BallTron...) Bought many affiliate marketing material before - but getting free traffic online is not that simple for me at the end of the day. I am here to learn and start a business whatever it takes. I am now thinking of my future and my family.

Hello and welcome to Premium. This website is full of wonderful helpers and I have learnt to always use the search tab at the top of the desktop, the answer is usually in someone's free training. Type in topic, rather than long question.
There is an answer to just about every question, all you need to do is ask..
Aside from the Certification and Bootcamp courses, there is heaps of extra training. Check out the training classrooms as well as the live events. There are current as well as past events in here. You can find both these tabs on the left-hand side
Start playing with tabs and boxes on your dashboard, there is so much hidden information, just keep looking for it.
Enjoy Wealthy Affiliate. There are lots of people here only too happy to help you along the way with encouragement and helpful tips. Wealthy Affiliate is about training, but that is just a small part of this wonderful community. If you participate as well as train, you will gain so much more.
cheers

Hey John!

Congrats and welcome to WA premium!

I think the most import thing to do with any new venture is to "plug in" and be consistent. Schedule time each day to do the training, work on your site and write content. You'll find that content is king. :)

Here's to great success with your WA journey and online endeavors!

Come to think of it: Your name sounds South African or am I wrong?

Cheers.

Hello Suzanne,

Well now. I have been wrong many times before. So this does not surprise me much. :-)

But I am pleased to meet you my South African sounding (SuzaMarie) but US friend.

All the best to you!

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! :)

Thank you, Kyle.

I have decided to go with promoting WA and will go through the training shortly.
If promoting WA, is there any other payment alternative for South Africa to PayPal with our crazy charges regarding foreign currency?

Regards,
John

All companies pay differently, most offer at minimum check payment. For example here at Wealthy Affiliate we pay via Paypal as our primary payment method, but we can also pay via check or bank wire if you reach over a certain threshold. :)

As I said though, every company is different and they will state how they pay when you become part of their affiliate program.
