About Joniki
Joined July 2007
I have been involved in affiliate marketing for a little over 6 years with 4 years of it being my full time source of income.

It is a great business once you understand the basics and apply yourself every single day.

Probably my best moment with online business was selling a Wordpress blog for $50,000.00 that only cost $8 a month in hosting and my time writing the content. This site generated around $1500 a month for 2 years prior to selling it.

The sale allowed me to get into training others as a business which is my real passion.

Hi Joniki! I came across your training on keywords as I'm just getting started and wanting to explore all the options there are. You seem to be a wealth of knowledge and I'd love to tap into that once I'm further along (I'm not even far enough to know what questions to ask just yet). But I do have one question: do you still use the method you wrote about in your training? Do you still consider hubpages a useful tool? I know things can go out of date pretty quickly online.

Hi Joniki, I've been involved in online (affiliate) marketing for a relatively short time and I must say, it can be a little confusing.
Don't know if it is worth all the trouble, as I have not seen any returns whatsoever on my investments of time and money. However, we 've all heard the stories of folks making very good or excellent money at it and we believe that we can do the same. I don't know if I will be with WA beyond the trial period, but if you would like to stay in touch and share our successes with each other, you can find me on Facebook at Royal Garden Travel. All the best!

I agree completely and found that paying attention to those having success early on was key for me. I also stayed away from all the "short cuts" and other crap some people preach. Good quality and unique content is going to win out every time and it is the only long term plan that will work.

So nice to get the follow, thank you. I would be very interested to know what your site was about. Is your business training for this site?
Reply
joniki Premium
The site I sold was in the video gaming niche and I do not believe in training on any certain niche. What worked for me as far as a niche will not work for everyone. I believe it is important for people to find things that interest them in this business. There is a ton of content creation involved in affiliate marketing and trying to write about something you are not interested in can be a huge waste of time.

i'm not going to debate the issue. You presented yourself as a Christian while posting a video that has obviously been altered.

Christians do not spread hate and propagate lies about others.

Of course, being a Christian, you know there will be a ultimate price for all of our actions in the end. You can debate it then..

Maybe try using your affiliate training to spread your political messages in a more appropriate setting than a business website.

I find it really interesting.. .pulling all the bits and pieces that I pulled from here and there and making sense of it ... like your email mini course did.. this to a deeper degree. So far... so good! Looking for this to fill my time ... and eventually make some money .. then can turn the daycare facitlity over to other hands in full.... a nice thought!

Just touching base here.... hoping your sales are good and rising! I am on week 5 of the course and am trying my best to figure out landing pages and websites.. how to make them and how to get them online. Do you know of any good threads in the form dealing with either of those issues? I seem to have a real mental block concerning those two things.. how to build them and how to upoad them. I did download NVU and I went to Weebly to practice setting up a site and I am also doing the courses on w3schools.com... but.. still mostly in the dark. A step by step guide with EVERY detail is what I need.. ha. Anyhow... if you can refer me anywhere that would help.. I sure would apprciate it. I am having fun with this.... so maybe yet some day I will make a dollar or two with it too! I do have an idea for a compaign but have put that out of my mind for now. Hope you are having a great day.....

Hi Steve.... thanks for the information. I am now playing around with NVU. Slowly the puzzle is beginning to look like a picture.. peices falling in place. You said it was a rather steep learning curve so I expected that. I will be patting myself very hard on the back when I get my first webpage up.. ha. Thanks again and you will probably be hearing from me again... if you don't mind the questions. I sure do value the help... have gotten alot of info from the forum... Paulette

going well. the 8-week course is very helpful and made an impact on my sales. It's a very good idea to be patient. Many people jump on here and read a few things then try and run PPC with bad results. I really do not use much PPC, mostly free techniques, opt-in lists, articles, blogs.

Hey you-

I use NVU as well and do not even bother with HTML because you do not need it with NVU. There is a link button a the top of the tool bar. I just hightlight the text I want to create a link, click the link tool and enter the url.

As far as creating the pages themselves I use table, figure out how many different areas you want for your site and create a table. You can then put the contents in each cell and your done.

The only html I insert into my sites are meta tags I have created online and Adsense script IF I use it on a site which is not too often.

Sales have been down a little this past week but I have no doubt they will pick up next.

The holiday season is approaching and this is where I should make about 40% of my annual earnings.

To Joniki:

How is your WAU training?
My principles of business:
1. Do ethical / honeset / legit business. Practice the "Golden Rule."
2. Find a niche market (unique products / services).
3. Consider the timing / current need for the products / services.
Show AND tell others how you can help them; then advertise your products / services.
4. Teamwork - through mentoring and "bouncing ideas off one another."

I hope that this info. helped.

Sincerely,

Hi joniki. Thanks for your reply to my forum question.

Based on your experience in the past 18 months, and as I can only commit 2 hours per day, would you say the following goals are realistic, or too ambitious, or not ambitious enough?

1. By the end of the '8 Week Action Plan', make at least one sale.
2. Within 6 months, be making enough money to cover the cost of WA membership.
3. Within 1 year, be averaging $200 per day, 7 days per week.
4. Within 18 months, be averaging $350 per day, 7 days per week.

Thanks for your input.

Thanks alot for the encouragment on article marketing. It is a releif to know that others have been not so proficient in writing at first, but that it does get easier.

Someday I hope to be able to give back to others, as you have offered support to me, but I know we all have to start somewhere on the receiving end first. Thanks again. Ryan
