Thanks for stopping by. Let's stay connected: https://www.instagram.com/tantrafit

I am an author, blogger, yoga teacher, and holistic health and wellness practitioner. Over the past 10 years, I have focused my entrepreneurial pursuits on the wellness industry. In the past year or so I have become increasingly interested in focusing my energy online.

For a few years, my focus has been using the substantial traffic from my very targeted blog to find high-quality coaching clients. I have created a full-time income from this endeavor but I am now looking to expand my online income to different income streams.

I look forward to being a part of this community!

Couldn't help thinking about what happened to your site (discussed in live chat) Please don't let the actions of an unethical person get you too far down. They are the one with the serious issue, not you.

Learn from this experience and move on. I hope you continue to be active here! You can be a positive influence where it's needed most.

I wish you all the best.

Took me a while to hunt you down....I couldn't remember your name just remembered that you are a published author...My question is this...I am focused right now on promoting WA with niche.center.

I am using the writing style that is focused on the visitor that is also looking for the category that I am on with my site at this point.

I learned at the beginning to use the writing style that you see in this message to you....no paragraph longer that four sentences.

As it compliments what the visitor is trying to accomplish, and that is to get as much relevant information as quickly as possible then moves on.

When I move on to some of the other sites that I will build out it will not be focused on WA promotions.

Therefore I would think that I will need to change the style of content writing. I would think that this particular style could possibly be annoying or just seem too foreign to the visitor...

I would appreciate any thoughts that you may have on this...and thank you in advance.

I am not a structured writer. I'm a free writing, free spirited writer who writes what comes to her mind and when writing, writes from her heart. Everyone has suggestions for how to write, how to attract an audience, etc.

My suggestions? Just write. I did and it got me over 2 million blog readers. No gimmicks, no special writing style, just pure, authentic, unadulterated words flowing from mind and heart to paper/computer.

However, this style is not for everyone. Once again, I am sharing an angle of expression. Find yours.

That's my two cents :)

Thanks for sharing it helps a lot and give some ideas how to use the tools and how it benefits for online marketing program. I still need a little time to digest all the functions and uses though. I didn't know the differences between 'branded' and 'keyword rich search' domains until today, and now I'm confused if I have to change from branded to keyword rich domain or not. I thought I follow all the tutorials steps by steps but still I missed or skip that part. Trool. : -). I am planing to make a website base on Electronics Devices and I just finish just the frame of the website and still struggling to put in the contents on all the pages and not sure if I have to do it own my own words or take a content writing or blogs programs for my website as I am sill not sure where will it takes me after I'm done building the website. This is my first time so I am looking for any help I could get from anybody to bring me success in my project. I would like to request if you could kindly share some inputs,

Hi Joy, after reading your blog on "WA Help Please" it was hard not to reply. My website is for my generation; seniors planning to retire or having just retired. At age 63, I personallly know that if I don't continue working (teaching) I won't have much of a retirement financially, and I can't help think the I am not the only senior citizen in this predicament. I am sure that there are others that may even in worse financial shape. I have always felt the need to replace my current salary before retiring. I still have a long way to go unfortunately.
With all that background information said, I can't help feel that I can help with your cause, since perhaps someone in my audience is one of those needing the basics of life. Being my age and so close to retirement, but thankfully still getting all of my bills paid, I feel a closeness to those who perhaps need someone to care. To sum this up, I would like to be a part of your cause for the homeless, and since I love your writing style, and your heart, I would welcome a blog for my website family. Let me know your ideas of how you think I could help.

God bless,
Randy

I have been in WA for less than a year. I tried three separate niches on living on Social Security. The problem i ran into was that no matter what keywords I chose the Government already had 10 websites on he same niche. I gave up and started in a different direction. It's almost impossible to find a niche in Social Security hat is not already covered.

Hello Joy, i have question about my website name. does your website name have to be the exact same wording as your niche? My niche is (at home fitness equipment for weight loss) my website name is cozy fitness does that sound like it appeals to my niche, or will it have to be change to be more direct to what my niche is
Reply
JoyNelson Premium
Hey, I am not overly familiar with your niche. I can imagine the name Cozy Fitness resonating with some people but I would imagine you'd have to narrow down your niche. I would search through profiles to see if there's someone in the fitness industry here and speak with them. You could also create a WA blog post to ask the community their opinion, or a question. Also, asking n live chat might be helpful. I wish you luck on your journey! - Joy

Joy, nice to hear from you. I look forward to getting to know you my new WA friend.

I am trying to leave you a message on back yard brood. I keep getting a 'trying to submit too fast message'. Imagine that, I am faster than Google. (I tried different search engines with the same result.) I will try again soon. On your chicken fact and story page I would have liked to leave (or at least try to) a message but you don't have that enabled.

I guess that means I will just have to keep checking in.

I tested my end out by leaving a comment on your other site. And it worked. So maybe you need to do something at your end on the 'Brood' site!

As you have success on the 'net you know you need to work hard, but have some fun and don’t forget to ask questions.

A very nice boss once told me, ‘Helen, when you ask a silly question everyone else breathes a collective sigh of relief because they don’t have to!’ And that is so true. No question is silly so ask away.

If I can’t help I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Now let us keep in touch.

I've done a few yoga classes but there aren't many of them near my home to attend. Pilates is on at my local gym and I like to do those classes once in a while, as I do other forms of exercise too.

I am brand new to this group. I found you because you followed me and rank really high in a very short time.

I messaged this to @IveTriedThat since he was the way I found WA.

If you have time I would really appreciate your thoughts on my topics. -Thanks, LSJ



I am a 50+ mom and newly empty nester. I love art, graphic design, and advertising, and really enjoy helping less tech-savvy people learn how to use new media, social and otherwise. I also like to talk about religion and art, especially modern art.

This all seems pretty tight niche but there are certainly books and online courses that talk about these things.

I feel like the buzziest direction is technology/media to an older less techy crowd. But can it evolve into my artsy/spiritual passions as well?

I feel good about the idea but am struggling to boil it down to a phrase.

Techy reviews for the nontech crowd
People who want to learn how to use their tech stuff
Moms who want to find themselves again when the kids are gone
Life after the kids are gone
Searching for your true self after major life transitions

I think I am digressing. Please let me know if any of these resonate and I will try to build on that.

This has been such a helpful exercise. I have been sitting on this idea for years and want to get it off the ground.

Thanks,
Lisa

can i get input on my about me page:It all started around 2007. I began selling items on ebay. I was doing okay. Then in 2015 I borrowed $5000.00 from my dad,decided to upgrade to wholesaling on ebay. I bought some pallets from wholesale vendors, again I did alright but I had an excess of inventory. The pallets where inconsistent & contained odd lots. So I still sell on ebay. Then I decided to look at drop shipping and that`s where I discovered this great company Wealthy affiliate.

Hi Joy, as promised I am writing to you concerning your recent purchase of a template from Forest Themes. Here is my experience.
I recently purchased the Buzz theme costing $49.00 from Envato Market, Forest Themes. I downloaded all the recommended files and tried to commence the installation process. I could not find the required installation files. I emailed the company on three occasions expressing my concerns. I never receive any response. Anyway, I used their installation service costing $50. So a $49 payment turned out to be a $99 payment.
I still feel very angry about this. I suppose that is life one person slaps you in the face and another person is very gracious to you.
I hope you get your problem sorted.

Hi Irv,

Yes, I also ended up paying for hosting through an upsell and agreed to a $36 purchase and was actually charged $36 plus $54 and the theme Redwood was $49 lol.

I have emailed the company and gotten no response. It is odd because I have heard such amazing things about their company and themes...hohum. Live and learn!

Thanks for sharing your experience,

Welcome to WA Joy,

I was intrigued by your writing experience. I'm inundated in training right now at WA and through a writers club. I'm trying to learn copywriting as well as build and market websites. My goal is to combine the two skills into marketing interesting (hopefully;-) content on my websites. I can already see where a writing coach would be useful in the future. But, for now, I'm just working through all the training. I'm interested in your writing experiences...

You are obviously very successful anyway, but may I wish you more success in the future.:-))Steph

I love your website, it is awesome.

Good evening to you Joy, my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. I am following you back. I am very pleased that you are already experiencing a good income from your holistic and wellness practice. The SAD diet of Americans (Standard American Diet) will keep you in demand and never lack a market . The online world is full of markets to pursue, whether similar to your occupation or totally different. WA is the perfect fit for you to open doors into these areas. With WA you could have multiple websites each focusing on something different, like diet, detox, exercise, vitamins, supplements, etc, etc.

I suggest you start with the Get Started Here [top left green box] that will teach you the basics, like picking a niche, building a website, keyword research, etc. I look forward to working with you and helping you any way you may need. I wish you much success and prosperity in your journey.
Ken

Hey Joy, just a ride by...I shortened url's, redirected links to review page....still not sure but, whatever moving on....both of my pc's are creeping around like turtle snails if there is such a thing...rrrrrrrr
I will finish lesson 2 today, I am finishing lesson 2 today, be gone...
no matter what, I promise I will smile Thursday, that's still close proximity to now, right? I know tomorrow is the day we start our exercise and diet programs, cause it never comes, so even if I can't find it, I will say I am smiling, maybe the thought will infiltrate my subconscious and arouse me enough to at least portray an online smile.... maybe I will wake up and I will be under 200, yes, that will do it...smile in your mirror for me...see ya, Joy.. next.

Thanks, this site had over 2 million visitors in the first 4 years, then I changed the name (huge newbie error). I lost everything and had to rebuild slowly...so it seems like things are going better even though I have barely blogged in the past few years. Thinking of taking this traffic and feeding it into my Instagram account...

Hi, Joy, thanks for following me, I have checked your site, looking stunning, good clickable images, good posts. Put more content, you have a very good site. Build another one, now on wellness, since you have vast knowledge/skills on it. I'm sure you can write 500 or more posts on it.
I'm not saying ignore, Backyardbrook, its a very promising site.I'm trying to say don't leave what you know best behind, take it along with you, you were not in wellness industry by mistake, 10yrs of experience can't be left behind.It's an outstanding achievement. GOOD LUCK

People keep asking what to write on their about me page for their WA affiliate site, here are my thoughts...

Write what you would want to read about yourself if you were your potential customer. Just write naturally with flow about yourself, a bit about your background and what brought you to this point in your life. Also list any related successes or anything that might help your audience see that you are a resource and a success...that's if you are talking about a WA affiliate website.

I wish you luck, abundance and mind blowing success!

Hello Joy lifelong learner, entrepreneur and seeker of truth, welcome to wealthy affiliate.
With your experience you will know that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
Can I suggest you browse some of the 200+ blogs I have published within WA.
Thank you for the follow and I will follow you as well.
Remember, if you get stuck (which I doubt) you ask ok.
Enjoy your day.

Hi Robert,

I am truly excited to read your blog posts! I am heading out for a bit, then plan on spending an evening going back and forth from sitting by our fire pit to soaking in the hot tub but if I have a moment today, I'll stop by your profile and begin reading! If not today, tomorrow for sure!

Have a lovely rest of your weekend!

Hi again Joy. (I don't know why, but as soon as I saw your name I immediately thought of the song 'Joy To The World')
A hot tub and a fire pit sound like just the thing I could go for tonight.
But as I live in Scotland I reckon it will just be a plain old bath tub that has my name on it lol

You are sure to take away lots of good tips and advice from my blogs and if you get stuck then drop me a PM.

You never know I might be asking you for tips and advice as well.

As its getting late now and that tub is calling I will bid you goodnight.
Maybe I will catch you tomorrow.
Enjoy your Saturday and your weekend.
Robert

Thank you Robert!

I wish you a nice hot soak that eases your mind and relaxes your body so that you enjoy a deep, profoundly restful sleep! I absolutely love creating mutually beneficial connections so if you ever need support, please don't hesitate to ask! By the way, I am at least half Scottish, though I honestly know very little of my heritage.

Sweet dreams!

Did the free writing exercise after my bike ride this morning. The good news, 5 minutes flew by, the bad news is I'm frustrated about being a Gemini person that's not brilliant at all forms of communication!

By the way, I think you could be on to a good thing with your idea of setting up a blogging niche site.
I'm on a mailing list of an ex journalist that has targeted the fitness industry to help trainers to use the press and and other forms of media to promote their businesses.
She does very well?

Morning Stan!

I am so glad you were able to enjoy free writing! If you continue to spend just 5 minutes a day I believe your communication and voice will become even more clear.

Yes, I woke up thinking about writing, blogging, and helping others on their paths so I am on the same page! Thank you for following up and letting me know how things went for you!

I hope to continue to hear of your success!

If you are like me I bet you are still super excited to have discovered and become part of the Wealthy Affiliate community!

I have been here at WA for just over 3 months now and I have seen that having an active network of like-minded individuals is a big key to our learning and success here. You will find my network has many active members and we are always willing to help each other out! :)

I have added you to my network and hope you will do the same in return. Looking forward to following your success here at WA!

Hey Rick the Canuck!

I have known about WA for awhile but I was part of another program that didn't function very well for me so I was hesitant to join. I started free, checked it out loved it and haven't looked back since!

I reciprocated and added you to my network!

In community,

Hello Joy,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right, the first website link (click on my picture). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my websites. My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live a month ago and the one on sleep apnea has been up for almost four months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hey Joy and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

My name is Steve and I'm the owner of IveTriedThat. You signed up through me and I thought I'd tell you a little about myself. I joined Wealthy Affiliate back in 2009, over 7 years ago. I was looking to learn how to supplement my income through Internet Marketing and what I've found was so much more.

By 2010, I was working full-time from home. These days, ALL of my income comes from my ventures online. In fact, my wife just recently quit her job to start her own business as well. Internet Marketing and Wealthy Affiliate have provided us with amazing opportunities (we've bought a house, get to travel the world, and best of all, no longer spend time "going to work") and I'm incredibly thankful to the training, tools, and support here that made it all possible. :)

I'd love for you to see the same level of success. So, if you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, do not hesitate to get in touch with me. I am here to help!

To get started, you should add a short description and upload a picture. Wealthy Affiliate is a community and having a profile and a picture will really help get you acquainted here.

Anyways, thought I would just introduce myself. If there's anything I can do for you Joy, just let me know!

Cheers!

Steve
