About JonLawrenson
Joined October 2014
Hi John here. I was born in East Africa and grew up on a coffee farm amidst canyons, forests and rivers in South Africa, hence my love for all things natural and adventurous. I studied nature and environmental conservation (wanting so save the world, you know how it is when you are young?). Unfortunately the caring professions pay dismally low salaries which literally meant working for the love of it. I started my own eco-travel related business and now need to generate income online. Although my passion is living sustainably off the land, in balance with God and His creation, my first attempted niche site focused on marketing green / environmentally friendly / living off the grid products, technologies & services while putting them into practice on our very own plot ... which has yet to be found and purchased! I ran out of steam on that topic so have changed niche to my 2nd attempt, a site focused around a subject that I I am already better acquainted with, marketing venues for school and church camps.

I would greatly appreciate your feedback on my sites so please visit them and leave feedback here and on the sites where I I have made more progress on my South African site www.classactreservations.co.za (you will have to copy & paste the URL's to your browser as live links don't operate in this space) ... than I have on my WA hosted site www.classactreservation.com as I yet have to find venues to fill the latter.

God bless and here's wishing you all loads of FUN!!!

Hello John, I checked out your site www.classactreservations.co.za I was going to leave a comment there but it said comments closed. i thought the site was awesome and full of useful information for anyone looking to reserve a camp for church groups, youth groups and more.
Reply
JonLawrenson Premium
Awesome thanks Chris! I had to close the comments because the locals kept submitting short enquiries for venues in the comment boxes instead of using the forms in the venue windows which automatically go to the venues and cc me. Not good because that means I have to asses and forward the enquiries manually. cheers John The only page I have left the comments open is on the feedback page http://classactreservations.co.za/testimonials cheers john

Hi Nathaniell. All good this end and am glad to have joined premium! While I was working my way through training & building a site a question has crossed my mind. Can a previously existing site that is currently not WP (it is Joomla and hosted elsewhere) be brought into my WA portfolio?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
That I don't know. It's possible, considering you have FTP access, but Kyle would be the one to ask about that. Let me know when you find the answer. As long as I've been here, I've never followed up on that, lol.

Hey, I just wanted to check in and see if had a chance to start exploring Wealthy Affiliate. I know that when I first joined WA I got serious information overload. I didn't really know where to get started or what exactly I was meant to be doing.

If you haven't started the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course - that's a good place to start. It'll take you through the whole process of what online marketing is, and how to build a successful website. Click the green"Get Started Here" button on the left.

If you're seriously lost or need help with ANYTHING, drop me a message on my profile or ask someone in chat :) Live chat is an awesome tool and there's usually someone that can solve your problem right away!

thanks Nat, after a full day job and following up on inquiries for my tourism business in the mornings and evenings, i don't get that much time for WA but I am half way through lesson 3 and some of the sub menu drill downs. Cheers john

Excellent. Slow but steady!

JonLawrenson Premium
hi nat, if I upgrade to premium by paying the $19 for first month, am I committed to compulsory debit order for the 47 / month thereafter or can I pay manually if and when I can afford it?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
You have to consider the hosting of your website. WA provides this service for free for premium members, but if you cancel your membership, you'll need to find hosting outside WA to keep your website live.

(hosting is where your website files are stored)

You can absolutely cancel any time, but if you want to keep working on your website without a WA membership, you need to move it to another host, which will cost you about $100/year (12 month commitment) depending on the company you choose.

JonLawrenson Premium
Thanks N
So if I upgrade from starter to premium but could not keep up the monthly payment do I go back to starter level access to WA or does that cancel my whole WA membership?

Hi Nat, I think I will wait a while before upgrading to premium while I go through all the training as a starter, I am on the build your own website page. cheers john
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Yes, you'll have to cancel your membership because there's no way to go back to starter.

Take your time building your website, even if you stay starter for longer than 7 days. You can continue to work on your websites for free even after your access to live chat/questions on WA expires.

Hi John, Nathaniell here. Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

I'm glad to see you've signed up and are ready to get started.

Right now, there are just two things you need to know.

1) Those who ask questions interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their goals. The support here at WA is the best in the internet marketing industry...please take advantage of it.

2) You can get started learning how to make money by doing your Level 1 Certification Course. Click on the green "Get Started Here" button or just click this link https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1/getting-rolling.

And don't forget that you can also access me for 1-on-1 support by leaving a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/nathaniell or by private message if you are a premium member.

There are a ton of other features you have access to right now, but they are explained in your main training linked above. Your #1 job right now is to get to lesson 1!


★ ★ ★ Access Your Bonuses! ★ ★ ★

I also wanted to let you know that if you join the premium membership in this 7 day window you'll get a TON of awesome stuff from me.

First off, you'll get a 59% discount ($19.95 for 1 month) on your membership. Twenty bucks for you first month of WA is an absolute steal.

☆ ☆ Bonus #1: Live Case Study 2 Part Webinar Series

Get access to a 2-Part-Series Live Case Study webinar. It's video series where a professional internet marketer creates a complete 'niche website'. All steps are included and thoroughly explained, including research, rank, content creation and monetization. Total length of the videos is 2+ hours

This will give you a broad overview of the type of site you will create on Wealthy Affiliate. I think it's always a good idea to know the direction you are headed before you start your journey.


☆ ☆ Bonus #2: Top 5 Newbie Mistakes And How To Fix Them

This includes some simple design tips, and answers to the most frequently asked questions by new WA members. This resource will help you bypass these common errors and get your affiliate website ready for making money.

If you have any questions at all, don't hesitate to ask questions in Live Chat or on the training modules. I think you'll be surprised at how many people want to see you get started on the right foot!

I don't have the funds to upgrade to Premium yet so will see how far I can get along with basic for a while. Yeah the community sure do answer quickly. I got here via your One More Cup Of Coffee review of
BinaryMatrixPro ..... I just wondered if you actually tried it yourself?
Cheers
John

nathaniell Premium
Haven't tried binary matrix pro, but I have seen the devastation that products like these cause. One guy lost over $45,000 of his retirement money because they kept asking him to deposit funds. The brokers are as bad as the scammers that sell these "apps" or "software".

I have NEVER seen a real binary trader say anything good about these programs.
