About JohnnyMark1
Joined April 2010
Before I joined WA, I had built a couple of online stores and used drop-shippers to distribute products. These sites only earned marginally because I didn't know how to build traffic to them, so I eventually shut them down.

I finally discovered Wealthy Affiliate and have since learned so much about optimizing websites and pages for the search engines. I've also greatly improved my writing skills. I continually learn how to build and drive web traffic to my new affiliate sites.

I find that being a Wealthy Affiliate member is immeasurably beneficial in that I can stay abreast of the most current, and most effective strategies to drive targeted traffic to my sites.

I live northwest of Rochester, New York, U.S. very near the Great Lake Ontario.

See you around Wealthy Affiliate!

Good evening and welcome to the WA family.

Those are excellent goals that you have set yourself, but remember that there is a lot of work ahead and that this is a journey and not a destination.

Enjoy the excellent quality training from Kyle and just ask if you have any questions as we are all here to help you and each other to achieve our goals.

Hey there, am so happy you've completed your money goals, am sure they’re 100% attainable. All the best, wish you success in your endeavors.

Please follow the training and apply what is taught all is explained within the lessons. As you go along the coursework, ask as many questions as you like to get clarifications, mark your question as community and someone will always be here to answer your inquiries. You can also blog your questions, that's the Pen, top menu, choose Blog at WA. I believe there's a limit to blogging on the WA blog roll for the first three months.

Again you may like to post about why you choose WA, how you come about your niche, what are your goals for this week and the following, aspirations, etc.

Remember the WA community is no judgement. It is an open discussion. We help each other, we were all at one point where you are right now.

Welcome to WA..

Best wishes

Abie

Great that you are learning Dreamweaver and CSS. I need to do that too. Also Joomla. I'm slightly technophobic, but also fascinated with web design. I think too many people are not spending enough time on their articles. I'll take quality to quantity any day.

Thanks for the Missing Manual tutorials. I want to redesign a couple of my sites and feel I need more flexibility than WordPress templates allow. Mine are Dreamweaver sites. May have to hire someone if it gets too sophisticated for me technically. Nonetheless, I want to learn the tech to get to the design part. Thanks John.

Thank you so much for the nice offer, I just may take you up on it sometime. I've revitalized myself and am now working on my third campaign. The first two were not successful, despite a lot of work. I had saved lots of notes over the last couple of years, but recently I've been gleaning WA, looking for updated strategies (article marketing, keyword research, etc.), trying to determine what's relevant, and what's not anymore, considering Google's Panda updates.

I've been studying web design using Dreamweaver and CSS, and learning Photoshop from a web design perspective. In search of updated strategies, I decided to sign up for the 30 Day Success Club, and the Street Article 30 Day Challenge to help me. I guess a have a hard time composing articles quickly. They're quality articles, but I need to pick up the pace, and whip them out quicker.

Thanks again for your nice sentiments.

Hi. There's a group that sells web design training (LearnWebDevelopment.com), although I haven't sign up with them, and likely won't. I've very pleased with the 'Missing Manual' Series tutorial books by David Mc Farland. They're awesome! ...but I wanted to say that about a year and a half ago they were really pushing the training for Joomla, as they felt that it was a better, easier platform than Wordpress. They also sell Wordpress training, and really push that now, and I hardly ever hear about Joomla anymore. I think it's only because it's more popular, not necessarily that it's better.

Thought I'd connect with you since we have been in WA about the same time together. I took the 30 day training twice and especially appreciate potpiegirls blogs and magistudio Jays wabinars and instructions. I launched a business at www.comforthealthybikesaddles.com that producing a small income right now. All because of WA. Best of luck to you and MUCH SUCCESS.

I do get traffic, make sales and had the site reviewed by Jay a few months ago. I have an assistant that helps with the backlinking and everytime she backlinks my site I get activity and new sales. There is a combination of things you need to do to get people to come to your site and buy. First, good content, Second - Good Key Words, Third - Niche Product in demand Forth - Backlinking - Fifth - Many articles on lots of article sites backlinking to your site. If you can get linked from a popular site that really helps in the rankings.

Dear Webkab, I'm so very sorry that I had missed your post. Thank you for contacting me, and thanks for the nice wishes. Yes, I too, had enjoyed posts by PotPirGirl. I don't see her around WA much lately, though. I had purchased her 'One Week Marketing' information, and was following those suggestions for awhile. I thoroughly enjoy Jays WAbinars! I don't always make the live presentations, but I try. If I don't, I definitely watch the recordings, and take hand-written notes. Isn't that a great resource?!

Anyway, over the last couple of years, I've built three or four Wordpress mini-sites and written a bunch of articles for each, but none had taken off. When the domains were up for renewal, I decided to let them lapse, and shut them down. I was creating Squidoo pages as PotPieGirl recommended, but didn't see much traffic from that either. Maybe because of Google algorithm changes, I don't know. I do know that I write well-researched articles, so the content is good. I did keep one WP site I didn't shut down, even though I'm not selling anything from the efforts. Another mini-niche site I built with Dreamweaver is relatively new: ReverseOsmosisSystemsReview.com is only just starting to see some traffic. So far, I written about 25 articles around researched keyword phrases and submitted most to Street Articles. I've got some ideas to improve the site that I need to implement. How do you drive traffic to your site(s), do you write articles, or maybe Pay per click? You did a nice job with your site there. It's nice looking. I hope your sales are surging!

Hope to see you around WA.
