Hi Jscotty.
When I was 18 (I am 71 now) a friend of mine owned a small nursery and he said that aquaponics was the future of nursery management. Pleased to see it is still practiced.

The Japanese have the longest lifespan of any nation. I believe this is due to their diet. I think the Japanese diet will make a great marketing theme.

Good luck for the future. .

Hi Jim. Aquaponics is very new here in Japan. Not many using this technique here. My wife and I have been introducing it here for about 6 years now. Anything new in Japan moves at a snail's pace, but once things catch on it really explodes. We're hoping that'll be the case with aquaponics.

I appreciate your idea of marketing a Japanese diet theme and I think that's a really good concept.

Thanks again, Jim!!

Good luck to you too sir.

By happen chance my son is visiting Japan in December.

Yes, I think a blog on 'Japanese diets for health and long livety' is a good theme.

Best of luck.

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 Jeff, how's everything coming along now that you've been a member for a few days? I hope you've found your way into the "Get Started Here" training toward the top of the menu on the left and that you're enjoying yourself so far!

Some people gravitate towards the "Affiliate Bootcamp" training which is something I don't recommend right off of the bat if you've never made money in internet marketing before. I have a detailed blog post covering this topic if it's something you're wrestling with and you'd like me to send you the link.

I know that may be a bit confusing, but if you have any questions at all don't hesitate to ask! I hope you're enjoying your time here so far :)

Hi Ian, thanks a bunch for your emails and support. Honestly, I haven't had a ton of time to look around here over the last 6 days. Almost finished your training on FIMP and must say that you put together a fantastic training program.

Personally, I've been squeezing in time to finish your training but am not quite ready to get my website and hosting as of yet. I run an aquaponic business with my wife and trying to get it profitable, which in itself is challenging.

I already have a website for the aquaponic business but it caters to the Japanese since I live here in Japan. The site is in Japanese and my wife provides the content since she's Japanese. However, I thought I could penetrate the urban farming niche because I don't really think there is a huge potential in the aquaponic niche.

That being said, I'm fully interested in affiliate marketing to provide authoritative content in the urban farming niche as well as physical product selling via dropshipping to start.

I had a question and so sorry to be long-winded here. I know you must be quite busy. My thinking is that it makes more sense to have two separate websites, one for dropshipping via Shopify and the other for affiliate marketing via a blog site. Was wondering if I am thinking correctly and if you might have any suggestions?

Oh and I believe I signed up here in WA before I got to the end of your FIMP training. I plan to try out WA for a month and would love to give you the affiliate commission. Can I still do that?

Thank you so much for your time.

All the best,
Jeff

PS. Thank you for the additional training links as well... much appreciated!!

Hey Jeff!

If they're in the same niche, there's no reason to separate it into two sites. You'd just be creating twice as much work by doing that — it's perfectly okay to promote both your own eCommerce products AND affiliate products on the same site. This way you only have to build ONE site's authority, too.

And yes, you're tagged as my referral here at WA. So take as much time as you need! Whenever you decide to upgrade, since you setup your free account through my link, you'll still be tied to my affiliate account.

Best of luck on the journey ahead! I think you've got a great vision — it just comes down to hard work and execution now.

Thanks again for clarity. I just need to figure how to set up my site for linking my dropshipping products transparently similar to Shopify. I'll do my research and possibly reach out to other's in WA if I hit some roadblocks with this. Don't want to take up too much of your time. Again, thank you for your guidance.

Definitely research "WooCommerce" here at WA — lots of helpful info here for that.

Hey Jeff, I was just scrolling over a few things in my dashboard and saw that you signed up a few days ago but haven't completed your profile yet. Is there anything I can help you with? I hope you've at least enjoyed a little bit of the content and community that's come together here!


If you get a couple of minutes, completing your profile will help you get A LOT more out of Wealthy Affiliate. People are much more likely to interact and engage with you if they can feel that personal connection, so just keep that in mind if you plan on pursuing affiliate marketing and engaging with this community!


Also, here's a free lesson I put together on the 5 Rules for Succeeding in Affiliate Marketing: http://youtu.be/p3iYfoy4SOQ


That will take less than 5 minutes to watch, and should be VERY helpful as you continue pursuing affiliate marketing.


Best of luck to you and, again, let me know if I can answer any questions you have!

Hey Jeff! I wanted to start you off with a quick note that could SIGNIFICANTLY impact your success with Wealthy Affiliate. Read this entire message if you are serious about being successful in internet marketing (it's lengthy, but I'm not joking when I say that this advice could make or break your entire internet marketing career):


1) You'll need to work consistently and hard. There's going to be a lot to learn in the beginning and you may feel overwhelmed at a point, but keep pressing forward and you'll make it through. It happened to me and every other successful internet marketer at some point, and the only way to become successful in this industry is to push past that overload whenever you get there.


Do yourself a favor and commit to a number of hours that you can work each week right now. It doesn't have to be massive, but it should be more than 10 between evenings and weekends at least. Just remember the more you work each week, the faster you'll learn and draw closer to success.


After you've picked the number of hours you can work each week, commit to working that much for AT LEAST six months - a year would be better. You won't see results immediately in this industry, and being consistent is the key. Pick a number of hours you can work each week, then work those hours for at least six months. It's something you've probably never done in this industry, and this advice alone will make a HUGE difference in your chances at succeeding with internet marketing as long as you take it seriously and STICK WITH IT.


2) I recommend starting off with this training (which you can access with your free account): It just scratches the surface of the MASSIVE amount of helpful content in WA, but you'll get a good "feel" for the teaching style here and begin to see the power of all of the great things they're teaching here at Wealthy Affiliate.


3) DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE COMMUNITY. Two of the best places you can go to for help when you get stuck are the "Live Chat" and the "Classrooms" sections located on the panel to your left. You'll find direction and inspiration through the community here, which is one of the reasons I recommend WA so highly.


4) Finally, you don't ever have to upgrade to the premium account here at Wealthy Affiliate if you don't want to. You'll have limited access using your free account for as long as you wish. HOWEVER, if you're serious about internet and affiliate marketing then you should invest in the premium membership for AT LEAST one month. You could look back on it years from now and see it as a pivotal moment in your internet marketing career, but you never will if you don't at least give it a try.


Check it out for a few days though - you don't need to upgrade right now. Make sure it's a good fit for you, and if you upgrade within the first 7 days you'll receive your first month's membership at more than 50% off. I keep my membership active and recurring every month so I can be here for the people I refer like you, so realize that I'm putting my money where my mouth is here!


On top of that, if you upgrade to a premium membership at the discounted rate within the first 7 days I have a special bonus EXCLUSIVE to people that join WA through me and upgrade within the first week of creating their free account. This bonus will show you how to be twice as successful with WA or any other legitimate internet marketing program out there and gives you some very valuable video lessons (which I recorded for you personally, of course) to ensure you get off to the right step in your internet marketing business.


I keep a close watch on the list of people that upgrade from starter to premium, so I'll send the bonus your way within 24 hours. If you upgrade and don't receive it within that time frame for some reason, just post on my WA profile and let me know!


I don't offer that bonus so you'll spring for the membership and make me more money, I offer the bonus just in case you needed that tiny "push" to make sure you invest in this training because I know that you will use for the rest of your IM career and it could change your life. I've referred hundreds of people now and I have NEVER had anyone tell me they were dissatisfied.


Best of luck to you! You're about to embark on a journey that could change your life forever, so make sure you take it seriously, put in the time and effort, and expect great things in return!


You know where to find me,
Ian Pribyl
