About JulianRicha1
Joined March 2020
Hello,
I am retired and burned out from being a telecommunications contractor / sub contractor in the telecommunications industry which I gave parts of my body and sometimes my mind to the high pressure, time sensitive, endless deadlines, career. I have been retired for 9 years enjoying life with my beautiful wife, our wonderful, well adjusted, happy go lucky, hard working, son.

Now I am looking for something to do that will enable me to continue to contribute to my family’s needs. I don’t have much money to invest, and it seems (to me anyway) if you can learn to do much of the preparation and work yourself this could be a fairly lucrative and rewarding alternate, or primary career.

I am looking forward to corresponding with many of you on our journeys to our individual, yet common goals, for our collective futures.

Thank you,
Julian Richardson

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! :)

Thanks Kyle, got my first niche figured out. saw your video about a niche is just people looking for stuff. I was tell Carson how much I absolutely love this site that I am dedicated to introducing some fortunate people to your site. And then possible either something to do with RVs or hiking. My son and his girlfriend love hiking in the great outdoors, and my wife and I will watch them from our RV.

Yeah, that is most definitely the direction you could head with your niche. If this is something that you are passionate about, definitely go for it Julian!

Hi Julian, welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

My name is Tim, you might remember me from my site, Affiliate UNguru. I'm just stopping by to say hello, and to see if you have any questions or want some help getting rolling?

If so, just hit 'reply' below this message and I'll get back to you asap! :)

Either way, here's the link to start your very first lesson: This is the exact training that took me from "newbie" to "super affiliate", so I'm super excited to be sharing this with you today! All you need to do is follow the training and complete the tasks as you go along, and you'll be well on your way to creating a thriving business online.

Also, before I go, I just wanted to let you know that it's totally okay to ask LOTS of questions. In fact, the more questions you ask the better!

We were ALL beginners at one point. Most of us started out knowing virtually nothing about how any of this stuff works (myself included)! Which is why I think you are going to find the support and mentoring you receive here at Wealthy Affiliate to be absolutely priceless. So I recommend you take FULL advantage of this as you start building out your new business.

Anyways Julian, it's wonderful to have you as part of the WA community and I'm looking forward to working with you going forward!

Tim

I just wanted to give you a quick heads up about the exclusive bonuses I have lined up for you, should you decide to upgrade to a Premium Membership within your first 7 days...

Bonus 1 ⇨ Over 60% Off a Premium Membership

By upgrading to a Premium Membership at Wealthy Affiliate, before the timer runs out, you will receive a 61% discount on your first month (from $49 to $19)! This is an absolute steal. Getting everything you need to build a profitable online business for such a low price is simply a no brainer.

Bonus 2 ⇨ Live "Idea to Profit" Niche Case Study

Access to an exclusive Live "4-part case study" that walks you through the exact step-by-step process of creating a profitable niche website- right in front of your eyes in a true "over the shoulder" format. This one bonus alone could change everything for you, as you are seeing the entire process in action from "idea to profit"- step-by-step, click by click. This case study is not available anywhere else so it's very high value stuff and something you will not want to miss.

Bonus 3 ⇨ I Will Help You Choose a Profitable Niche

Choosing the right niche can make or break your success from the get go. So this is something you need to get right if you want results in the shortest time possible. And I'm guessing you do, which is why I put this bonus together. When you take advantage of this bonus offer, I will personally help you choose a profitable niche!

I will be your mentor, your coach. I will be there for you every step of the way to help you reach (and exceed) your goals. I started right where you are now, and built a 6 figure business online, by following the same training you are going through right now. So having personal access to a successful internet marketer, who followed the same path as you and "came out the other side" (whenever you need it) is going to be a HUGE deal for you. But remember, you must act before the timer runs out if you want to claim these bonuses! :)

Thanks for the message, I appreciate it very much. I am retired and unfortunately money is tight. What I have done to date is invest in a work from home opportunity that cost me $147.00 that enables me to sell the same for a $100.00 commission. I also have an AWeber account with a cost of $19.00 per month. OCM Marketing’s training to acquire an email list is non existent, so I am on my own to find free advertising, determining how to write ads to entice others to respond to my capture page, which I am not particularly happy about the design. I can purchase email leads from OCM for $200 per 100 emails. I have no experience in website development and was given this capture page free of charge which I have since noticed is probably supplied by AWeber anyway. From reading your letter you have probably been in this situation yourself. I like the niche for “work at home businesses” , but I don’t particularly like how they go about selling, offering bonuses that never end, but are not as they pretend bcuz they end up not being bonuses really since you have to pay for them. Not the way I like to do business. I spent my life working in the telecommunications industry. I was a sub-contractor for Wiltel, Bell South, GTE, Bell Atlantic, Executone, Dept. of Energy, and many others doing system, installations, integrations for telephone systems primarily, but also local area networks ( LAN ) very difficult, high pressure, time sensitive installations that took a toll on my body and at times my mind. But I always gave my customers the best I had to give, even when they didn’t deserve it ( attitudes I always tried to ignore, but at times they wouldn’t allow ) Anyway, I am a give your best service type of individual, and get the job done.

Sorry for going on so much, this coming week I will try to get my training done, cost prohibited. One other thing have you head of Online Consistent Money ( OCM Marketing ) I am not certain it was the type of business I should be envolved in?

Thanks,
Julian Richardson

Hi Julian,

I've never heard of OCM no, but any business that is all about buying it to promote it to others, and is all about email marketing without teaching you proper email marketing skills, sounds fishy to me. I personally see scams like this all the time and I've learned the hard way that they're not worth it.

What you will find is that Wealthy Affiliate is a lot different because you are taught real skills, to build a real, legitimate long term business. And everything you need is under one roof- tools, training and support. Nothing is left out.

Anyways I hope this helps and I'm here if you need anything going forward. :)

I sent this to kyle, but I guess you are my mentor since you were the one that sent me to this great site, which by the way I am extremely happy with, any wayI ‘ll just copy and paste what I sent Kyle. Just a little background on the message.i informed him about the program I have recently joined where they provided me a capture page to sign up potential members along with a auto responder service at AWeber which naturally is an additional cost to me. So here is my reply, oh and he thought they were ripping me off becuz of lack of training:

JulianRicha1 5 minutes ago @Kyle Let me ask you this, I am interested in learning all aspects of the business and I believe this is a very helpful group of people, just what I have been searching for. So, if I decide within the first seven days to join the premium service will I be allowed to sign up
Other members by becoming an affiliate? I understand the basic concept , not the knowledge of, search engine rankings but what about building an email list, isn’t that a good approach? I have been told that offering something free like an ebook using a capture page, then having an autoresponder to present your offerings is a profitable way to go. I only say this bcuz I need to start earning something, and that would help pay my way through your approach. Does that sound like a solution. I could learn first to build my own capture page, with follow up emails to express the benefits of joining this group. If I have a good experience here and feel it is more than worthwhile then why wouldn’t that be something I would want to sell? Sort of like a way to pay for membership here.i have already written some ad copy to that effect, not finished yet, but it would give an idea of my approach if you would like to read it, let me know ok?

Thanks,
Rich

Hi Julian,

1. If I decide within the first seven days to join the premium service will I be allowed to sign up?

Yes absolutely. You can refer people to WA as a free or Premium member, but you earn more as a Premium member. Worth noting is that this isn't all about promoting WA though, there's two main paths you can take - promote WA or promote anything you want with a niche site. Either way is fine.

I recommend jumping into the free content first as much as possible, see if this is something you like, then decide from there.

2. What about building an email list, isn’t that a good approach?

Email marketing is a good skill to have and this is taught in detail within the training. It's not the main focus at first, because the most important thing is to build an audience (AKA get traffic) first. Without that you won't get anywhere so this is the foundation of your business and what WA teaches at first in the core training.

3. It sounds like you might be looking for a way to shortcut things a bit, which I understand because I was the same at first, but this is a long term gig. The best advice I could give you is to stick to the training. Know that this will take time, and play the long game. This is what will lead you to creating a successful business online. Focussing on the email/capture page/paid ads approach is a good way to lose a lot of money as a beginner. And get nowhere. A lot of "gurus" teach this method because it sounds easy, but in reality it's not the best way to start a business online unless you have lots of cash to burn or work on using free traffic. But if you are going to be using free traffic, you're WAY better off sticking to the core training here, because WA teaches you how to build a thriving business based on free traffic, the right way.

Hope this helps!

Tim

Hey Tim,
Check out “OurAffiliateSuccess.com” not much there, but gosh it is so easy. I am going to love this. Now I have to learn about an affiliate link to WA after I finishing writing an introduction. Man, thanks Tim, I am loving WA.

Hey buddy,
I just visited your website, really impressive. You did a nice job of writing. I am struggling with mine.

I named my site “OurAffilateSuccess.Com. Which insinuates that I have some degree of success to date, when in reality I am thinking into the future with that bold name, so to speak. Since I am not prone to lying I have to figure out how to dance around that issue a little bit. I am sure you had the same issue to deal with early in your development.

My son, is trying to help me out a bit. Hey, I got a question for you, My name containing “Affiliate and Success“ do you think that will help or hurt in the ranking? One of the training videos said that the title, not you necessarily you website address is what determines ranking in google searches. I noticed you are right at the top in searches because of your unusual name “unguru”. So should I put something unusual in my title To get ranked higher, what do you think? Also, in the several headings in my articles should I put other stuff like Business Opportunity, Work at Home, and etc and name those as keywords. I don’t want to get lost in the crowd, but at the same time those are terms that folks use to find what they are looking for. Also, it was mentioned that it seems to obvious to google that is something you are trying to accomplish that they will penalize me in the rankings. So, should it be included in the body and not the heading? Little confusing.

Thanks Buddy,
Rich

Hi Rich,

I absolutely would not be concerned about the title/domain with respects to rankings. What you want to be doing is creating a brand. A simple brand that resonates with your audience. That is all. And to me your name makes sense. And the word "our" is good too, kind of says that "we are in this together" which is a cool brand idea I think.

Yeah so if you type in "Affiliate Unguru" I will rank, because it's unique, but nobody is searching that. People are searching for answers to their questions, which my articles answer. That is why I rank and get traffic, it has absolutely nothing to do with my site name. So you want to be ranking for the articles you create, which the training shows you how to do.

You should create content to help people, that is based on low competition keywords, as the training shows you. So I wouldn't be targeting "business opportunity" as a keyword, this is WAY too broad and competitive. What you don't understand yet, which is perfectly normal, is that there are (literally) millions of keywords beyond these, that are much lower competition, that you can rank for.

So the best thing to do is continue through the training and keep learning/applying. Eventually this stuff will make a lot more sense. But for now, just keep pushing through.

Thank you very much for your message. As I was explaining to Tim, I am currently involved in a business that has provided me a capture page, which leads to a video presentation and also sends the clients email address to my AWeber accounts for follow ups. I am placing free ads trying to send folks to the capture page, but I don’t seem to be getting traffic. I don’t think I will be involved in this very long, Judy enough to repay my $147.00 investment @ a $100 commission per sale, of course unless it really takes off. I assumed I was fairly good at writing ads, but the response is proving otherwise. I was thinking of using the current event of the cornovirus where many are now home not making money, and if they had prepared themselves to make money online, they may not find themselves in this situation if it ever happens again. I don’t like scare tactics, but it just seems like common sense to me. How do you feel about that type of approach?

Thanks,
Rich

You don't want to start off with a "capture" page. Whoever is teaching you that is sending you in the wrong direction and setting you up to potentially lose a lot of money online.

You are going to learn how to properly build a business online here at WA. ;)

I have spent some time breaking down the process in the most simplistic way possible. Success online is at the core a 4 step process and I have broken them down within this video: Broken, down, the process looks like this:

Step 1: Choose your niche
Step 2: Build your website/content
Step 3: Get rankings in search engines (leads to traffic)
Step 4: Monetize your traffic (the make money part, through affiliate programs, etc!)

This applies in absolutely every niche and as you work through the training here at WA, you are going to be walked through this exact process. This is fundamental for ANY success online.

If you have any further questions let me know Julian. :)

I don't recommend worrying about an autoresponder or getting into email marketing until you have a source of traffic no less than 100 clicks per day.

If you focus on email marketing before that, it is far too premature and you will end up spending too much time on managing your list, broadcasts, follow-up sequences, integration into your site, etc...without focusing on the most important thing first. Traffic!

Hope this clarifies your concern, Julian. Simply drop me a reply if you ever need a hand with anything.

Ok, you have convinced me to change my approach. Sorry, if I seem head strong, everywhere else I have gone has told me to build an email list it is the foundation of marketing. Perhaps after all , it hasn’t been me that has failed me, it may have been the advice I have been getting. I kind of like that better anyway, lol.
Reply
Kyle Premium Plus
Yeah, no problem. Email can come, but the email first approach which is being taught by many scammy gurus is likely based on them trying to sell you expensive funnel software. Am I correct that this is what has happened here?

The problem with this approach is that after you buy your software, you then need to pay for traffic which is high risk because you are unlikely to know your audience at that point, what converts, etc.
Reply
JulianRicha1 Premium
Yes, that is true. But what really turns me off is that they make you a reasonable offer with many bonuses, only the bonuses are not really bosses because you have to purchase them to make the first component you bought work.
