About Josh From Oz
Joined March 2012
Hi everybody!. My name is Josh and I'm from Australia. After tasting some success with I.M over at Squidoo I decided it's time to learn how to extend my reach, what a better place then here at W.A.

I work full time and more as a house Painter so my time is limited online, but I have studied the ropes of I.M for the last year or so and will NOT give up on achieving my goal, which of course is financial freedom and more time with my Partner and 2 kids :)

I look forward to reading all these very helpful posts and training to better my skills and finally build my own money making site :)

Update 24th February 2016: Thought I should update my profile as it's a few years out of date now haha. So now I have 3 kids, 2 boys and 1 girl and I no longer work as an employee for a Painting Company.

When I had my first website on WA I was making about 1k a month consistently. Then a real world opportunity came along for me to start my own painting business. As my online money wasn't sufficient for me to quit my day job just yet I went ahead and started a painting company (funded by internet money).

This March celebrates 2 years as owning my own successful company. This Month also celebrates my 4th year being a member at Wealthy Affiliate.

So right after I started my painting company I got so busy at work (doing 60-80 hours a week) and I simply could not do much progress on my sites. After 8-10 months of working solid I finally had time to get back to my websites. Which by the way didn't drop in earnings, they went UP in earnings. The power of ranking in Google with quality content :).

I made a new website once I re-learned some of the things I had forgotten (Which is why WA is so good- Has all the helpful resources anyone could ever want). I also was very keen to get into my new website (Kind of like when I first began at WA with excitement) but this time I had even more knowledge.

Over a year later and now my online income surpasses my wage (Maybe I pay myself too little haha). One day once my house is built and most of the mortgage is paid off, I will become a full time marketer. Until then having an extra full time income really helps with finances.

This is the power of what is taught here at Wealthy Affiliate. All that's left to do is take action and do it consistently. If a simple house painter can succeed online I believe you can too!.

How's the Traffickar working for you...?

Josh From Oz Premium
Hi Tim, to be honest. I haven't been online hardly at all in the last 2-3 weeks due to us moving to a new home. So I have no home internet and no way to access internet until one of the big companies decide to help... That's how bad internet is in Aus :( I can get reception on my mobile phone which is limited (How I am writing this write now haha). Hopefully in the next couple weeks I can get back online :)

Thanks Josh, I just know you recommended it and I just wanted to see how it was working for you. PS if it is an affiliate please send me the link again when you get up an running so you get Credit for it... Not sure how that works but prefer to get you the credit if I join. Thank you and I hope your move gets done well and you are back in the saddle again because you are such a great help.
Hope all is well with you and your family.

also since Google Keyword PLanner make my harder to hide exact match search is hard to predict how many searches has some keyword. Do you know any keyword tool witch exact match searches option?
Reply
Josh From Oz Premium
Jaaxy shows results for exact match searches. I have been using Jaaxy since day one and have found it reliable. I don't use any other paid keyword tool, because I do pretty well just from finding keywords on Jaaxy. However I do use the free Moz Toolbar browser add on just to check out competitions PA and DA.
Reply
Hello guys. I have a question about keyword research. I was doing some minisites before and in most cases I was just breakeven... . It was very frustrating and all articles I had to outsource, English is not my first language... .

Also I noticed one thing with Jaxxy. When I choose some keyword with SQR below 50 many times when I check backlinks to those websites, there is much much work to do, not just writing articles.

Are you using some PBN networks or backlinks strategies to get traffic to your websites?

When you build your site how long average you have to wait to get traffic or regular commisions?

My best result to over 120$ per month was 1 month. Just I pickup wrong keyword - it was seasonal keyword and later I lost traffic and income... . Also PBN cost me something as well... . Traffic is my the biggest issue... .
Reply
Josh From Oz Premium
Hi Piotr,

PBN's are something that is not taught here. It is a way of manipulating Google and sooner or later Google will find out and destroy the business overnight. So I have NEVER created PBN's for my business.

As for backlinks, they are not required. Here is what Kyle has to say about them: Again I have never done a 'guest post' or spent hours 'commenting' in forums or other niche sites etc. I spend my time writing content for my sites and sharing on social media.

Some niches are going to be tougher than others, so they can take longer to break into. From my experience and using my techniques I usually get my first sale between 10-18 posts. Regardless of the niche, Google doesn't trust a new site and is 'sandboxed' for the first few months. So it hardly gets any traffic in the beginning. Once you have earned the trust of google and proven that you are a serious website (Not just a spammer) things start happening.

From my personal experience, it takes between 3 to 6 months to get the first wave of increased rankings. Then after a bout 10-12 months the traffics gets even better. Then the rest is history and keywords start becoming easier to rank for.

Choosing the right keywords is the best way to get traffic coming in quicker. Finding descriptive longtail keywords with minimal competition is the way to go. For example:

Bad keyword to choose: best gun safe 1167 searches and 226 QSR

Better keyword: best small gun safe for home 112 searches 0 QSR.

The second keyword is more descriptive so will be better for conversions and have less competition. That is just one example I found with looking in Jaaxy for couple minutes.

Hope this helps you with some of your questions.

Good day Josh,I'm very excited about your accomplishments they are really encouraging.Now after reading your article of how you made 257 sales a night,I'd like to ask you if possible,to share with me a little about Amazon affiliate program VS google ad-senses. What is better to start with while you can't afford premium upgrade?Can you possibly let me have a look at that link?

josh..can i still earn from this temporarily, even if im not premium..? im planning to, its just that im still looking ways to earn me some bucks then get premium?.. is that possible?

hoping to know more about you and the company josh! :)

thanks! :)
Reply
Josh From Oz Premium
Yes it is possible to make money as a free member, however you will be missing out on a lot of training and other features. If you can't afford Premium, then I don't suggest getting into it just yet. Keep working on your free website and building it out with content. When you can afford to upgrade, I wouldn't hesitate. There are ways people pay for there WA membership such as writing articles online and getting paid a few bucks per article. Common sites include upwork, textbrokers, fiverr and ineedarticles. This is not the ideal situation because it's much better to be adding articles to your website to build it into a more passive income stream in time. But it is an option to help with immediate finances :)

True, and if it helps, I don't know why that WA member got so hissy. You were helping and she shut you down for helping her
Reply
Josh From Oz Premium
Simple misunderstanding. I said something like 'talk about what is the purpose of your site' on the about me page as well. But I think she took it as me saying "What is the purpose of your site..." as if I was saying her niche was not worth my time. Which is not what I meant. For example, on my WA referral site I would say something like 'I hope to help other struggling marketers finally make money online' or something like that..

And now I have a follow-up question that is slightly embarrassing:

I had been planning on doing the 'first month for $19' to give it a shot and then drop back down because I don't have $50/mo, but I discovered that's not a possibility and I don't want to simply have to quit after just a single month.

So, I was wondering if you knew what a year-long membership would be right now?

I've found some old posts, but they have different numbers and may no longer be accurate. The current premium upgrade offers only discuss the monthly rate.
I know that I need more help than the free version is offering (I can't imagine trying to get all of my questions answered in just a few months much less a few days), but I need solid info before I borrow money to take the jump.

One way or the other, I will continue - I do know that. I will either struggle through on the free until my family is steady enough for a life-long commitment to WA, or go with the yearly as soon as I can scrounge it.

Any info would be appreciated, and I apologize if this was too personal,
-Mar

Josh From Oz Premium
The current yearly subscription is $359. You can find the official post here: I know it's a lot of money in the beginning, especially when you don't have it! (I had to take out a credit card to pay mine back in the day). But in the grand scheme of things, WA is too cheap for what it offers. Just don't let Kyle know haha.

I like your enthusiasm to keep going no matter what. Affiliate marketing works and the more you can learn about it the better :), oh if what you are learning is correct of course.

Yea Man. You will find keywords and then write about those keywords in a post. The post will rank in Google This is how you get traffic and then make money. For example 1 post could be called the best bluetooth in car headset for androids. Then you could write about the top 3 or top5 headsets. Just as an example

Hi Josh,

I just joined the Wealthy Affiliate through your link. I hope it's a right decision to pursue my dream for a financial freedom.

Since English is not my mother language, writing in English is quite difficult task for me, so the websites that I will create in the future mostly will be in Indonesian language, and will be serving Indonesian market.

In the above condition/limitation, do you think that WA will still be a good tool to help me to succeed? Please advise.

Thanks heaps for your help this evening, I get a little shy and nervous asking for help, but thanks for answering my questions so helpfully.

I am looking forward to having a success story like yours soon, like You, My Hubby Works So Very Hard for Our Fanau (family), and my Goal is to make enough Money to surpass his Income to give him the Opportunity to not have to go to Work Everyday, to have the choice to go, if and when he wants..

He works Hard so that I get the Privilege of being able to be a Stay-at-home Mum, and be at ALL the Kids School Activities and Sports.

So Happy for You and Your Fanau, Awesome Stuff.

Hey Tes, Not a problem. I know how your Hubby feels, it's kinda built inside us to take care of the whole family, especially when kids rock up. My Wife met me before I was an internet marketer. So I know shes not just after the money haha. But with the commitment to making this work, she or I never have to work in a JOB ever again. Unless the internet blows up! So stick with WA and don't quit ever!. That is the biggest secret to success. Learn how it all works, and then its a walk in the park :)

When the timing is right, I will close my offline business and take my online business to heights my offline business could never reach :). The principles here at WA are so solid anyone can change their lives, this opportunity is a blessing for us in this period of time. I couldn't find your website on your profile?.

Hi Josh

Hi Richard, more Aussies :). I see you are premium member, thats the best thing you can do!. If you have followed the training and built your website at the same time, you should move onto course 3, lesson 1. Having knowledge of the computer is not that essential as most of what we do is writing and adding images. So it's something you get the hang off the more you do it.

If there is anything you get stuck on, let me know, or ask in the live chat or use the search bar on the main dashboard. There are many answers to be found. You are in the right place to quit your JOB and be better off than you can imagine. As long as you put in the effort and give your website time to grow. It takes time for Google to really love your website before you start getting hoards of traffic.

Thanks for getting back to me need some advice on the domain bit after typing in a domain name had a list of names come up do I have to purchase all of them or just the .com or even the top four what do think

just one domain is all you need. If you dont want to buy a domain you can use the free siterubix websites provided by WA. Later down the track you can then buy your own domain and transfer your siterubix site over. This way its cheaper at the beginning

HI Josh, Lovely to hear a success story and I hope that we hear more of them - it is a shame that the people who do well at this do not spend more time letting other know so I will be following you with interest as this oldie tries to get back on a financial footing - I am in Qld

Qlder! Its not uncommon for people to learn the ropes that WA teaches and then go off on their own, by making their own courses/products etc. So not all the successful ones hang around here after they reach their goal. Which is fine. But there are still heaps of people here who make a lot of money but just don't boast about it either. But the one's that are here generally want to help others become successful. Thats why I like WA :)

Me too - having successfully raised 7 kids as a single mother am proud to say they all have their own business and are all doing well - can't ask much more than that - one has to lead by example and having been a millionaire before I will do it again lol even at my age

Hi Josh. I haven't got a website yet, still working on it.
Can you please let me know the relevance of my only blog appearing
on Google. Is it important? I can't quite get how blogs can be rated, and where they fit into the website. Any help would be much appreciated. Regards. JauA

your blog is where you write posts/articles on your website. Each post.article is targeted at your audience. You write helpful content/reviews which get ranked in google. So when people use google and search something, they may find your website/post. On your post is where you have affiliate links to products/services your audience want to buy. This is how to make money from a website. One way anyway.. Once you start the training you learn how to do everything to get your website ranked page one of Google search results.

Joshua, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Joshua.

Hi Josh, I'm new to at wealthy affiliate but plan to go premium do you have an article or something about Amazon affiliate or is that talked about in the premium membership, thanks for your help! Sherry
Reply
Josh From Oz Premium
Hi Sherry, there is plenty here on being an Amazon affiliate, however some people get put off by the 4-10% commission rate. Still 4-10% of a $1000 product is still a nice commission I say :). I don't have any articles I've written, I just learn an implement. I learned a lot from Potpiegirl here at WA. Feel free to ask any questions. Cheers
