About Johnson
Joined November 2012
Hey everybody

My name is Sim

I came here hoping to learn this type of business. I spent many years in the Metal Fabrication Business where I've made and lost large amounts of money from those business ventures.

When it comes to the Internet I'm a bit lost in the marketing world. My knowledge of marketing begin with a phone call and then a trip. This type of business is different for me.

I joined WA hoping to learn the internet business. I've been here a while now and gained a ton of knowledge on how this business functions. Doing this type business is not all that difficult. BUT! it's not all that easy.

The main thing I've learned in business, to make money you have to put in a lot of time and effort. You may have to change the way you do things but if you don't give up you will eventually make some sort of money.


As a previous business owner I know all the obstacles you face on your way up. The difference in an online business and a brick and mortar business is financial. It cost lots more to build the type of business I'm familiar with.


These young folks with a background in computers should breeze through this training and start making money with a website of any kind.

I met Sam Walton in the early 80's while doing some Stainless steel work at Walmart cafeteria in Bentonville Ar.


The time I spent talking with him inspired me to be a better person and make better use of the tools I have.

There's a lot of business owners not making a lot of money but they won't give up. Success may be just around the corner but the ones who give up will never see it.

I hope to get to the point, where I can be of help to others here at WA.

Just trying to build first website today. I need to be more disciplined with my time than any thing. Making a schedule going forward is one of the first things that I think will make me stick to this. I will start to use a daily planner to keep track of my time to spend making this work.

Hey Sim,
Sorry to hear you had a heart attack, glad to know you're back on your feet again. One resource many have found helpful for reversing heart disease is Engine2Diet by Rip Esselstyn. If you haven't seen Forks Over Knives, that would be helpful too.

Best to you!

Hey Sim - just a thought and it's up to you , from a navigational point of view pages are aligned at the top ie Home, About me ,Product Review, Blog ,etc (these are your main navigational pages, less important pages (privacy policy, disclaimer, sitemap) go at the bottom or in the side bar as you have it. You will also need to create a Blog page as this allows your customers to interact ( this helps with ranking as Google like regular updates). Posts generally go in the side Bar and can be placed in categories - this is one of Kyles sites to get ideas http://craftycontent.com/

Hi Sim
I have had a look at your site. Well done for getting it started.

I have a slightly problem with your front page - The question that people what always want answered is WIIFM - (What's in it for me? eg how is it going to make life easier/better/change it etc) and I don't really feel that at the moment you're quite capturing that. Going into language and trying to explain a niche- it's not what most people want or need to know at this stage. Choosing an interest yes. Try to avoid the jargon.

You ask a lot of questions - but you don't actually use questions marks where you should.

Very brief view because I haven't a lot of time right now. I would write a blog asking people to look - you have more chance than in Live Chat

Best wishes

Beverley

Thanks for the encouragement I joined WA in 2011 and paid a years membership which is cheaper but in that time I can't seem to find that niche that explodes.

This is different from anything I have done, but i keep thinking it can't be that difficult.

The problem I have is figuring out what everything means on the dashboard, I don't know the Internet language. Ayway thanks agian and good luck in all things.

Sorry to hear about your health scare recently but great to hear you're back on deck. Take it easy and relish your time with family, especially those grand kids:) But you didn't need me to say that anyway. We all know how simply being with our loved ones is really the stuff of life.

Enjoy your day, moment by moment.

Don't over do it with keywords ie load the blog or post with the same keyword/s as It will be deemed as SPAM - I choose one Keyword ,place in 1st paragrapgh (must make sense) and write the article naturally - Colin
