About JohnMks
Joined May 2015
Hello:) my name is John and I live in Sweden. I like to work (here), workout, take photos, read books and try to spend time with my loved ones.

WA saved my life! I am so thankful that I found this place.

I´m here to reach my goals :o) One of my biggest goals is to help as many people as possible to reach their goals.

The other goals I got I keep to myself :) At least until I reach them :) and I WILL because I ain´t gonna stop until I do.

My gift to all the WA members is my blog post here at my WA profile:
Why it is Important to Write Goals Down

It is a must read and it will help you tremendously with anything you want to accomplish!

Also, got many other blog posts here on WA in the community so, please feel free to read them by scrolling through (they are not that many anyway lol!)

Please follow me on as I share many useful tools there sometimes that I come over when doing this Internet Marketing thing :) Got to love it! Right?

Hi John,

Hope you are doing. I have been quite slow at picking up speed with my business due to work commitments. Having spent so much time without much movement. I am beginning to get a little bit disappointed.
I want to know if you can give me some advise on how to increase momentum in my niche - making passive income.
I will appreciate any guide I can have from you as my personal coach.

Regards
Wole

Thank you for the follow, am following you back! Here’s to great success.

I’ve followed you on fb and insta. But I’m finding fb a bit frustrating, I’ve liked one of your posts from my business fb page. But then, I think to like your page it had to be my personal one. So then I get no follows on my business one. All other social media sites gains followers well. And it’s easier to follow people back. Thought I’d mention, to see if I’m missing somthing. Thank you for the follow again :-)

Hi John! My name is Max Dreyer. I'm 18 years old and a Freshman in college studying Biomedical Engineering. I just want to tell you that your personal testimony that you posted a couple days ago was very inspiring to me. I'm just getting started with affiliate marketing so I haven't been successful yet, but I am extremely determined to give this process all of my efforts. My business partner is my roommate and we will be operating off of his wealthyaffiliate account @PatOD.

i just finished lesson 1 and heading to lesson 2.

i find it confusing concerning PREMIUM REFERRAL...whats exactly is the job.once i have created my website,what do i have to do?how to earn money?whats my objective in order to achieve the target?

please get back to me.

once again i thank you very much.

nice evening.

Hi brother,

you know, the questions you are asking now is exactly what the lessons will tell/show you. It is much better you take it step-by-step instead of me starting to overwhelm you.

If you can do 1 lesson (and the tasks) per day that is more than ok, and things will start to get clearer and clearer very fast.

I would focus ONLY on the lessons, for now, everything else inside here you will start to learn later on with time.

/Hope that helps

Hi John,
Could you give me a name or two to help build my site, need to get a web page up and running real soon. I'm about half way through the training, but long way to go. I'd like to pay for some help just to get started as I'm learning.

OK so basically if you want to get info or make any sort of money you have to pay for a membership, which i can't afford. great another dead end not surprise.

Building a WordPress site is YouTube stuff getting traffic is also YouTube stuff. You still haven't given directions to set up or get into affiliate marketing.

So what exactly is this another way how to make money from other people signing up and getting commission, like seriously what you have taught will help me to make money online, oh yes only if I sign up for a membership then i might get help in doing so very lovely scheme.

Maybe I should create a blog/website exposing schemes like these.

Hi John, I hope everything is going well for you.

Thanks for following me, glad to follow you back.

May I ask you a question, when you are publishing a blog at WA how do you customize an image when you upload it onto the top of the page. When I transport an image only a portion of the image is visable and I can only drag it up and down. Is it possible to decrease the size of the image.

Also, how do you include an image elsewhere on the page, can you copy and paste one.

Hope you understand what I'm on about.

I was very inspired by your posts and I wish you continued success in your business.

Dominick.

Hi, John.
How are you?
Listen.
Do you know how to link from one section of a page or post to another section of another page or post on the same site?

I'm not talking about on the same page or post in the case of an index for example.

I want my reader to go from one section of a lengthy page to a specific section of another page and then I want them directed back.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,

I actually read a blog post you had written about another online training course- I was checking to see if it was legit. Then you directed me to WA and checked it out. So far so good. Wondering where in Sweden you live? I have a number of friends who live there and some come to live in our little ski town in the winter. They live in Gothenburg and a tiny island off of the coast.

Thanks John, struggling to make my WP Blog the way I would like it to look and also trying to figure out if there is a way to get paid for links or only for ads. Part of the idea of the blog is to direct people to cool online documentaries. Site is www.whykillanimals.com
Reply
JohnMks Premium
I see, yes it is good you struggling, that is the only way to develop a skill ;) Nothing grows out of a comfort zone, right? :)

There are absolutely ways to get paid for both links and ads, however, for that to be possible you need traffic first.

Like your idea, it is not an "easy" niche but absolutely an important one and have to say that you have done a GREAT job on the design so far!

Good job!

If you want I can send you another personal bonus through dm that might help you out with traffic (keywords)?

He was jailed for conspiracy to sell arms to a South American Terrorist group in exchange for Cocaine. He had, before that, served as a member of parliament in Denmark. He actually just finished his 24 year term as prisoner in the U.S. and is living in Houston, Texas. He wrote two books which I am promoting on one of my blogs: "Operation White Terror" and "Maracaibo".

Like I tell my husband, it is so awesome that he has come into my life; he is always showing me little bits of affection, which is wonderful. But I feel that he's supporting me, and it should be equal. That's why I started this business.I want to be me, and start giving back in this marriage. It should be 50/50 right?

Hi John and a big welcome to the WA Community! Thanks for the follow!

I agree, goal setting is important--helps you strategize how to achieve them and how to help others do the same.

I am into my fourth week at WA which I believe have the best training modules on the planet! On day 7 I ranked #1 and page 1 on google with my first website. I decided to focus on Affiliate Marketing and will be selling Amazon products because they sell any and everything.

Don't hesitate to ask for help--I sure Did! I also use the search bar at the top of every page where you will have access to articles, blogs, and videos with step-by-step instructions on how to complete your task.

Stay focused, determined and motivated and you will not only meet but exceed your business goals!

There is a famous quote from Mark Twain:

"If it's your job to eat a frog, it's best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it's your job to eat two frogs, it's best to eat the biggest one first."

And that just means - do your hardest task first or at least as soon as you can in the morning. If you do this then the rest of your day is easy from there!

ANYWAY…

Hello, thanks for the follow and welcome to WA. You are definitely in the right place!

Thanks for the follow, and glad to hear that WA saved your life :-)

I like your productivity list - especially the last one (replace motivation with discipline)... my getting up at 4:30 am before work to work on WA training has very little to do with motivation I think, more of just setting it as a task and just doing it without listening the excuses to go back to sleep!

I tried posing this quesrion to Kyle but have not received a reply (leading me to believe I should seek out the answer somewhere else. You are a seasoned WA'er so I will ask you:

I'm on 2nd level training - adding photos - I want to affiliate with a site that sells photos (each photo will be embedded of course and all I do is edit it to include my affiliate account number). So I went to Kyle's training video on adding affiliate links and one of the first things he says is that Google doesn't affiliate links on every page. (I will also have a products page with a photographs and art category). Since it is not cool to have an affiliate link on every page (but my affiliate links will be my photos) is there a way to have the photos on my pages link from my products page instead of the affiliate site? Does that make sense?

So if they click on image on my About page it would take them to my product store first ians then the affiliate site. Will it even work and would it keep Google happy?

Thanks

I'm having a issue coming up with a domain name. For promotion of WA.

I've decided this will be my focus for now. And I will get into my niche development after I've made this successful.

Hi John, please to meet you!

I have two questions:

1) i live in Italy, right now, you suggest me to choose my niche in Italy? for the italians i mean...

2) is a niche, cyclists who want to improve their fitness and performance? (becouse i'm a cyclist for a long time)

3) could the consultant be a revenue? but i don't a nutritionist but i am e researcher

thank you for you help
Reply

I know the sport is big in Italy, but I also know (as a half spanish) that it is huge in spain also :) There is probably some more countries where it is big so I would go for the whole World with your niche... wich I by the way think is an exellent niche to go with, have not seen anyone doing that one here before...

Your last question I am not sure if I understand?

One of the way to get revenue from my blog it could be the consultant to the cyclist who wants to improve fitness, but I don't have any degree in nutrition.

Hi John,
I did just message you but want to nail my niche! The other idea, as I think I explained before was to have a website advocated the advantages of renting artwork before buying and for offices who may only want to rent pieces etc. I don't have the business myself but could have links on my site to other sites who already do it and get commission if the user purchases or rents from the affiliated sites. Do I need to do research firs to find out if the sites I have seen would allow my to affiliate with them? Or should I just go ahead with the idea? Is like starting a business so I feel I need to make sure the idea is good enough first and that I know it will work. Sorry to be so indecisive!
Thank you

Hi John,
You messaged me about niches and I'd really like to take you up on your kind offer, if you have a moment.
As mentioned on my profile page, I can think of several niches, but the monetisation aspect seems awkward.
For example, I've done software development, testing, documentation, translation, customer support etc for many years, but with background authorisation systems, not sexy graphics. Not quite sure to take this, if anywhere.
I also restore woodwind instruments as a hobby, but apart from pads and springs, I see no other affiliate options.
Related to this is a general love of music, both listening and playing, but apart from CD reviews (films as well), of which there a bazillion sites with more content that I could ever create, I'm at a dead-end there as well.
I've also given business English course and think that I could manage a blog on that. There are online training course available that might be useful, but the only other thing that springs to mind is book sales. This is hit and miss, due to the user location - the students are everywhere.
Maybe I just need coffee ... what do you think? Any ideas?

Btw, I have thought about the affiliate bootcamp and have an idea about that, but it's iffy. The idea is along the lines of "fire your boss, work from home", but with true anecdotes and stories about some of the utterly useless, incompetent and idiotic bosses I've had over the years (anonymised, of course - sadly). Does this sound like a fruitful avenue?

Apologies for the length of this :-)

best wishes
Derek

JohnMks Premium
Lol! I am sure you will do great in ANY niche as you are a good writer ;) it's not a joke, you seem to have a talent to engage with your text.. And that is a huge advantage

Sexy graphic is NOT needed, the graphic knowledge needed will be taught in the training so don't worry about that.

I think your first alternative niche sounds interesting, and you can find a lot of affiliate programs, they are literally everywhere online.

The bootcamp is great to start out with and you will learn things there that you can use later on to go into any niche and do anything online.

So, you might want to start out with that one for now, put your whole focus on it for a year and you will have GREAT knowledge about Internet marketing and can start (if you want) anything online later on.

Hope that helps?

Hi John,
Many thanks for your reply and your kind words (I'm blushing).
Just to be sure, the first alternative was restoring woodwind? What sort of affiliate programs did you mean? I'm sure you thought of things that I didn't.
I think I'll also try the bootcamp and see how that goes. I've made a small start with content and there's a preliminary version under fire-your-boss.siterubix dot com if you're interested. If you think it's a bit too harsh, please be honest.

Thanks again
Derek

I haven't looked into that niche for affiliate programs but am pretty sure there are plenty, there is also other ways to make your site profitable other than with affiliate marketing, however that is something you will discover later on.

I don't think it is harsh, it is actually a good name (in my opinion) as it is catchy so it will be easy to remember for your visitors.

You might want to considering buying your own domain name later on.

However, if the same one is available I would be surprised as I think many would want to own that particular one. You never know until you know though :)

So, bootcamp it is? :)

Hi, John,

Help— helping others will bring you the best kind of reward— LOVE grow. And it could also make you some money. I'm on Barnes and Noble and Amazon if you like to read. It's deep, though. Look at my profile and let me know to what material you want access. God bless you.

John,

I used the eleven40 pro theme as well. I can help you out tomorrow if needed. I just got back from the dentist and really need a nap.

PM me tomorrow if you still need help.

Look at my site increasestrengths.com it uses the eleven40 pro

Thank,

Shane

Thank you John, your words are encouraging. I joined in November but I've had some events that has taken me away from getting started here at WA. You sound like you're well on your way earning good money. I hope I can too. I live in the U.S. in Indiana on about ten acres of land and own a greenhouse. For extra income, I grow and sell plants which has always been a passion of mine. I'm an organic gardener and grow most of the food we eat too. It's a great hobby but I'm getting a little too old to do all this hard work. That's why I decided to give WA a try. I have two grand daughters living with me and more income is sorely needed. It cost a lot now to raise children and we try to make the best of what we have but really it's never enough. Despite the hard times, we're a happy family and my girls make very good grades in school. Education takes top priority in my house because it's the one thing you can give yourself that no one can ever take from you! Knowledge is Power!
I have a question. How did WA save your life? I'm curious, but if you find my question too personal, you don't have to answer. I love success stories and would be interested in hearing yours.
Merry Christmas and have a very Happy New Year!
Always Marilyn

Hey john,
Am still on this chosen a niche issue, another idea came to me how about i chose natural health as my niche ,and talk about how to attain healthy living naturally.
Plus can I join more than one affiliate program at a time on the same website .

My advice would be to pick one and go with that. In most cases (me included) your first niche won't be your last. Most important is to get started with the training, later on if you want to create an other niche it will be a lot easier.

Yes you can join as many affiliate program as you want for the same website

Hi John,Thanks for the follow and I will also be following you. It's good to see that you've been here for awhile, which is usually a sign of success. I started in Jan, but took a bit of time off and seem to have run into some problems. But since the training is so good I will go back and see what I skipped over. Everyone here, that has been successful, stresses to follow the training thoroughly. My 1st Mistake!...I wish you continued success...:-}
Warm Regards,

Hi John! I noticed under someone else's post that you mentioned it was after a while that you started earning through WA, what happened? I'm trying to fast-track my success so I won't fall in a loophole of fails before starting to win. Glad WA ultimately worked out for ya!

Hello John
Thanks for the follow, I am also following you; it is quite an honor to be followed by someone such as yourself. This is just one of the great and unusual things about our community here in WA. Everyone even the people who have been in for years follow newbies like myself who absolutely don't have a clue about what we are doing.

My hats off to Kyle and Carson for creating this Fantastic Organization.I will forever be grateful to Tom for introducing me to WA. I have placed your page in my favorites along with All the other Heavy- Hitters! Thank You so very much.

Have a Great WeekEnd;
Respectfully;
William
