About JudithShaw
Joined July 2015
I am an artist (painter and writer) who loves travel, yoga, dancing, music, swimming (particularly in the Aegean Sea), hiking and camping, gardening and bees. I grew up in New Orleans, LA which I use as my excuse for always being the last person to leave a party. I've lived in Mexico and Greece and currently enjoy the beautiful skies and light of the Southwest.

Currently I also teach part-time at the middle school level. Though I love the interaction with the kids, I'll be happy when I can leave that job behind.

I've been marketing my art online for the past 5 years and have reached a small level of success. I am very excited to have discovered Wealthy Affiliates as I feel the information I'll learn here is the missing key to much greater success online. And online success affords me more time to paint and the ability to continue making money while traveling.

Hi DStaubi,
Great to hear from a kindred soul. I'm following you back. Check out my site and leave a comment and I'll do the same with yours.

Bees are wonderful, aren't they! I just harvested a honeycomb a couple of weeks ago and am enjoying that nectar from the bees who transformed my garden into it.

Looking forward to our journey.

Nice to meet you Judith. I read your profile and wanted to say it's great to have you here. I know you're going to love WA and if you have any questions moving forward, please let me know :)

P.S. I think you have a great opportunity to market your artwork online!

Hi Vitaly,
I have been marketing my work online for 5 years now. The past year has seen a steady increase in sales. I believe WA is going to help push me to the income level I want.

I'm moving onto the set up your website step today. It should go quickly as I have content ready to go for a website which helps people access their own creativity. I looked into the concept of money-making websites a few years ago but the program did not offer the kind of support WA seems to in terms of the nuts and bolts of monetizing. So I did all the work but then let it go. It's coming back now.
Looking forward to learning more about your websites.

Hi VitaliyG,
I do have a couple of questions before I make my final decision about signing up.
1. If in a year or two I want to end my membership w/WA is there an easy way to move my websites to another server (or would I have to rebuild everything from scratch)?
2. Does the "All in One SEO Pack ProVersion " come with our premium membership.
3. Do you REALLY get personal help from the super experienced folks like Kyle, Carson, etc if you need it?
Thanks for your input.
Judith

Hi Judith:

1. You can end your membership anytime you'd like. For moving sites, it's all about which place hosts your website. If you host at WA which is free and leave, you will get 30 days to move your hosting to another place.

2. There is no upgraded version of the all in one SEO in premium. I still use the base version. We all do :)

3. Yep! And that includes me.

Thanks VitaliyG,
I'm going to sign up for the premium tomorrow. Here's the link to what I have up so far on my website. -oops can't send that link till I upgrade - will send it to you tomorrow.
A couple more questions related to website building.
1. On my site I can't seem to get the visual header to show up as part of the title. I can delete the title and it will be what I want visually but I know I need the title for SEO. Is that a particular weirdness related to the theme (Songwriter)?
2. To have my own domain w/o the siterubix ending do I need to buy that from a hosting company like GoDaddy or do I do that within WA?
3. When I have my own domain name is there an easy way to switch from siterubix to that domain? (I seem to remember something about that in one of the trainings.
Thank goodness I'm not a complete newbie to all this as it is a whole lot of info. I'm just plugging through one step at a a time.

VitaliyG Premium
1. It might have to do with the theme, but you can go into appearance --> customize and it should let you change the title.

2. You would need to buy from godaddy or namecheap.

3. Yeah the transfer from siterubix to your own domain is very easy to do. There's a tutorial here in WA that I'll link you to if you need it :)

Thanks again,
I just figured out how to fix the header. Note to self - don't ask questions till I've finished working and am really lost.

Hi VitaliyG
One quick question -
In the Jaaxy data if there is no figure in the QSR column does that indicate "0"?
Thanks,
Judith
Reply
VitaliyG Premium
Hmm that's strange. It has to give you some sort of figure. If there is an error, it'll say "retry". Otherwise, it has to be a number and 0 is the best.
Reply
JudithShaw Premium
Hmm... here's a screen shot of the page. Another one had almost the whole thing blank. Can't find a help button on jaaxy - any ideas?

oops - never mind - seems that I have to click on the manual KQI button for the blank QSR info to show up.
Thanks,
Reply
VitaliyG Premium
Ah yeah, sometimes it will do that and you have to click on it. Glad it's resolved :)

VitaliyG, I have a question which relates to being with WA for a long time or not. So far I am really happy and am learning many new skills. But my question is
After going through all the training, having my sites up and working well and with money coming in, what is the value in continuing with WA when I could find a much cheaper hosting plan somewhere else?

The reason I'd like to figure this out now is because I know how much work it is to transfer sites to a different hosting plan. So my thought is perhaps I should go ahead and host my sites that I create as I learn on WA ( and of course pay the monthly fee) with a different host now.

I do not think I am interested in pursuing the "making money online" niche, but perhaps there is value in staying with WA for the long haul anyway. Could you please help me figure this out as I am ready to purchase my own domain name now and need to be sure of where I'll host it.
Thanks so much.
Judith

Hi Judith, just to clarify, one the benefits of being in WA long term is actually the free hosting. You don't get that anywhere else and you can host up to 50 sites within WA without paying anything. In other places they'll charge you per site (maybe $5-$25month) and it'll add up very quickly. Here you actually save money by hosting multiple sites, it's what I've done.

When you compare just the $47/month to that, you actually end up saving a lot of money. This is only though if you plan on hosting multiple sites.

About niches not related to WA, yeah if you don't intend on promoting WA, then it would make sense to go, but keep in mind that WA provides the most up to date support in just about every area, not just marketing so if there's ever any questions or technical issues, you'd probably get the best service here.

It really comes down to figuring out if you plan on hosting multiple sites and really want to take your business to a new level. If that is the case ,then staying in WA not only saves money, it really helps you get long term benefits.

If these aren't your goals, then of course, you can leave anytime you want and there won't be any hassle there.

I do want to mention that even though you said you don't want to promote in the make money online niche, that maybe for now and you may change your mind in the future. That's what happened to me. For the first few years, I didn't even think about promoting WA, then as I gained more knowledge, I decided to and I couldn't be happier personally.

Hope this helps :)

Hi VitaliyG,
Thanks so much - that does help. I've been looking at reviews of different hosting places who get pretty low marks in terms of tech support. I already know that tech support at GoDaddy is not good.

I do plan on having multiple sites - just not sure how many. I think I'll keep everything housed here with WA for now. If that changes in the future I can always move (with a bunch of work). And of course you are right in that I might change my thoughts on the "making money online" niche in the future.
Judith
PS - just bought my first niche domain - will share the site soon.

Hi VitaliyG,
I need a bit of help figuring out the sitecomment section of WA.
I made comments on two sites and then put those comments into the correct spot on the WA page - about 3 hrs ago. (The explanation of what you need to do is really not good - I made two previous comments before realizing that I needed to go back to WA and copy those comments).
Anyway... it's still showing up as if I made no comments. What do I need to do to get credit for the comments I have made?

Also here's my website. http://judithsartprojects.com/
I put it up on the "get comments on your website" area and got no comments. Any advice on how to make it more SEO friendly or anything else?

I'm plugging away at content and looking forward to the tutorial on obtaining and inputting affiliates.
Thanks,
Judith

Hi Judith, when you use site comments here in WA, you do not need to copy/paste anything. When you choose to write on someone's website, you just click "offer comments". A website will appear, you enter your email and write your comment.

Then when you give 2 comments, you can get 1 credit to request a comment on your site. When this happens, you can choose your site (if it's within WA's hosting) and even the post or page you'd like it. Select that and when someone responds and gives you a comment, your site, you can approve it right there on the site comments page without having to copy/paste it. You can also enter a reply without having to log into your site.

Thanks VitaliyG,
That clarifies - though it is odd that comments I made on the actual website and then copied and pasted into the "leave a comment" area on WA didn't register. Anyway.... understand now.

JudithShaw Premium
one more little question - How do you find your way back to something like the "site comments" page when on the WA home page?

Simply to go siterubix, and in the options that option, select site comments :)

Hey Judith, I wanted to stop by and personally welcome you to WA. Rest assured everything I mentioned about them is true :)

Whether you're here to build a business, a website or just want to learn and make money online, this is the only place that will show you the best ways to do it.

Here are my 2 quick recommendations on getting started out the best possible way:

1. Please complete your account sign setup. This is just a simple 1 minute process that will better help myself and WA know more about you and your goals. I'd like to get to know you better and help you get going.

2. After you've done this, check this page out: (I think Kyle or Carson already recommended this). This is where everyone who joins WA should begin as it will explain everything.

The course is the most important part of WA. It will guide you to success!

And that's it!

Believe me when I say this stuff works. Just follow the instructions and if you have any questions Judith, feel free to leave them by just posting a reply here. I usually respond within 24 hours and will be more than happy to help you out!

One last thing I want to mention:

Currently you're a Starter member of WA. This is completely free and you can do a lot of things such as build 2 free websites, get access to training and the online chat, among other cool perks!

If you see that WA and it's training is something you'd like to continue, I would highly recommend upgrading to the Premium membership. It's usually $47 per month, but if you sign up within the first 7 days of joining WA...

1. You can get a 59% discount ($19 for the first month).

2. I'll send you my personal guide to Reaching Your Financial Independence in 2015. This guide is based on my EXACT profit generating techniques I've used with WA. If you are serious about online business, you need to have this. :)

3. You get access to my personal support, 24-7. If you need help, you can be sure that you can fire any questions my way. I have been in the Internet marketing world since 2006 and have likely seen it all! In short, if you have ANY questions, you can come to me anytime and I will help you out (if I can't, I promise to find you the answer). You can count on that.

Certainly this is up to you Judith. For now just check out the recommended things and see how it works out :)

Talk to you soon!
