Hi, my name is John, I'm 27 years old and looking for a new opportunity to earn more income. I have a family, and with my current job, don't get to spend enough time with them as I work 6 days per week, up to 14 hours each day. I plan on working hard at this, as I am always looking for long term. I look forward to any and all advice I may recieve, and hope to get to know some of you and help each other succeed!

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

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also 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. I just wrote my 102nd training for WA. I have categorized them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Welcome to WA - lots to learn here- stay focused - go through the Certification Courses first - you will get confused or frustrated from time to time - ask lots of questions - people are here to help you. 

HERE ARE 3 WA'ers Training Posts - they helped me - one is vocabulary you use here - one is a detailed use of your dashboard to find anything you will need - one is a plug-in to add to WordPress - that will help you build your sties. Hope they help - they did me This one I wrote - deals with how to "close" for the result you want. Stay with it - you don't need a wish of good luck - you need a plea to study the material and stay at it no matter what - it will change your life and hopefully the people you touch with your message.

Thank you very much Alex. I have already learned so much, and I'm only about to finish the first course!

I've been getting a lot of facebook ads full of "get-rich-quick" schemes, so I decided to research about legit programs and stumbled across this through Nats review page. I looked up a few more reviews and found similar testimonial speeches, so I figured it had to be something worth looking into.

I definitely look forward to what the future has in hold, and thankful I have such a community to share the same goals with.

First off, Thank you for the welcome! I really enjoyed your golfpracticeathome site. It was very thoughtful, and I can tell you put a lot of time into it.

The legitonlinemarketingcourse however, although it was well put for creating ads and quick clicks for info, it seems to me that you may want to at least possibly put a dash between the title and description.

YOU HAVE ALL CAPS AS THE TITLE Then tell about what you are promoting.

I am a newbie, I understand, but since I'm so new, I still see it as a prospect, rather than a seller, and I just want to give you my input in return for yours! We are all learning, so I would also appreciate as much input and/or criticism as I can get!

Just wanted to shoot you a quick message and see how things were going thus far John? I am here to help if you ever need a hand with anything, just holler!

PS. Also, quick reminder. Today is the last day to get your first month discount/bonuses. No rush, no worries. Just a simple reminder here. :)

I'm doing great, thanks! I took some of the things you said and made some pretty nice changes. I changed the theme, lightened up the background, made a lighter font, and added some more spaces to make it easier to read.

I just started my Jaaxy membership and did a few keyword searches, so I plan on applying those later tonight.

I will also be watching that CSS video once i get down the keywords.

Feel free to check it out again and give me some feed back. Hopefully this version is a little more suitable. Of course, it's still a work in the making, but I think I'm getting the hang of it.

You can add links now as a Premium member.

Your site is coming along, nice initial framework that you have there. One thing that I would fix is the fact that your header image is far too large and takes away from your actual content. People need to scroll down in order to see your content. The visuals and the relevant imagery should be placed directly inside your content instead of a static and overwhelming header that shows on every page.

I would either minimize this or remove it altogether, it is not offering any value to your end user and is impacting their experience in a negative way.

Hey John - How's it going?

I trust you've been finding your time at WA interesting and exciting so far and are making good progress.

I know there's a lot of training to take on board, but take it step by step and it does all fall into place much more as time goes on.

Also, just a quick reminder that there is a 61% discount on your first month, (making it $19) if you sign up to premium within the first 7 days. :)

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions at all and have a great rest of your first week!


Take care, Nat.

Thank you for your insight. Your website WAS the one that brought me to WA. I hope somehow you get the credit for it.

I am finding WA to be very helpful in all aspects, and I look forward to what the future has in store for me. Your blog was inspiring, but I was still skeptical. But once I joined and saw "the buzz", I was inspired.

I know it was one of your niches to have that page, but it was written very well and I have an appreciation for that. I've been very sick and haven't been able to work, but once I get back on my feet I plan to go premium to further my education here. I can't thank you enough.

Hi John,

I'm so pleased that you found my blog helpful - really, that's always the best part of this whole process for me, getting that feedback.

If you need any help along the way, don't hesitate to contact me. I'm sorry you've not been well - I hope you'll be back to good health soon.

All the best going forward - with whatever you plan!

Nat :)

I created my "about me" for my first niche. Although I'm second guessing if its a good idea, I'd like if you would read it and let me know if I'm on the right track for the actual aspect of relating to my niche. And if there's anything you would change, please leave a comment and an email. Just kidding. But please do reply and let me know if something doesn't quite look right.

Much appreciated,
John

Pennywise! lol, love it. I'm a huge Halloween fan myself :). I think you've made a great start.

A couple of basic things I guess is that - I'd suggest you add a few more spaces in your paragraphs.

In many blogs now, people add a space every couple of sentences, just because it's easier for people to read.

Also, to just add some images to your posts, which breaks it up a bit.

You've made a great start though. I love the niche :). Yes, it's going to be seasonal, but it's a good place to start!

ps I wouldn't overthink it too much in the beginning. Just getting started and adding content/images and so on, you will learn a lot from that. I do know of someone at WA who went into the costume niche, but it's more of a secondary site than their main one.

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! :)

Thank you. I chose scary costumes as my niche. But after sleeping on it and seeing what others did, I'm second guessing. I'll see how it comes out once my training is all done.

A niche can honestly be anything, what are you passionate about? What are you interested in?

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

Well my problem is I thought scary costumes would be a great niche seeing Halloween is coming up. But I searched Google and found other members websites under a similar niche and found they are more straight to the point, rather than "blogging". Its clear to see they are more advanced, and it kind of screws me for my initial choice.

I find your fonts hard to read. White background with black text has over and over again proven to convert the best and lead to the highest readership rates. I highly recommend that you consider updating your font/background color. Even a white font colour will make it much easier to read on Black.

You may want to consider choosing a different them for this. You can do this under Appearance => Themes.

You can also learn about how to edit your actual CSS (which controls the look of your website through Jay's live video class replay. This is great training and I think you will really benefit from watching that video when you get some time (just over an hour long). Hope this adds some clarity for you!

Your about me page does look good though. Off to a good start here!
