About Kasotty
Joined September 2015
My name is Zarina and I am a Premium member at Wealthy Affiliate community since September 2015 (and I am not going anywhere).

Wealthy Affiliate truly helped maximize my potential and explicitly taught me what I can do with my skills and knowledge (hint: build profitable websites). The training structure here delivers results.

The best part is that ANYONE can sign-up and test-drive an ENTIRE platform for FREE!

I like sharing my knowledge and experience and that's why most of my websites contain a lot of reviews and/or how-to posts.

Now, a bit more about me.

I recently graduated from Law & Society program at York University, Toronto, Canada. Throughout my university years, I discovered that I have a passion for languages - at the moment, I speak four languages: Russian, English, Spanish and French.

I also absolutely love travelling and meeting new people.

It is exactly for the purpose of being mobile that I've made a decision in 2015 to become a freelancer, and now I'm embarking on a bigger step of having an on-line business, earning more and being useful with my knowledge to the on-line world :)

I am super grateful to Kyle & Carson for building such a wonderful community, which provides the training, tools, and support necessary to build a successful business online.

Like you, I was a complete newbie myself, and I can assure you that this is by far the best place available on the Internet that gives its members PROPER GUIDANCE.

In September 2015, I created a free membership account and two days later I decided to become a Premium member to have access to everything Wealthy Affiliate has to offer. And as you can see, I am still here!

My pleasure to meet all WA members and I wish you best of luck on your online journey! :)

Hi, may I ask you some questions? Now that you are a member for over 2 years and been managing your site....have you started making any real income?

I guess what I am getting at (not to pry) is that this whole affiliate marketing thing takes much, much longer than I thought it would.

I have been a member for about 15 months and been working my bum off to manage my sites and write good content. I follow the WA training by the book.
But, my traffic and revenue sucks! I thought I would have a much higher income by now, but its just taking so long.,

Then, I got to doing some research and looking at other WA members (Premium). It seems that the successful members who are still here are successful only after working their sites for like 5+ years on average. Everyone who makes a decent monthly income from affiliate marketing ($3,000+ a month) it took them many many years to reach this level of income.

Is that correct in that it simply takes years and years to earn a high enough traffic and google rank to make that kind of revenue unless you are super, super lucky?

Hi Matty,

What do you define as real income? I am making a few bucks here and there, but what I really wanted is a breakthrough, earning around $1-2k/month of pure passive income. (Which I didn't start yet).

Now, I do know that it takes at least 6 months to 1 year to start making any money but I am about to say something that will make you very happy - apparently it's possible to make real income if you follow a particular strategy. I learned it last month and I started to implement it (already made some sales even though my website is like a month old).

I learned it from Dylan's post and I am sure you will find it useful too: His recent results for the 3rd website: I hope this helps :)

P.S. I don't think it's about luck here - it takes time and hard work (along with knowing what exactly to do).

Hi Zarina, thank you for the follow. Kudos to you on the languages. I have a smattering of French left over from growing up in Canada, but now when I try for a French word, I usually end up with a Thai word. Living in Thailand has almost obliterated my French vocabulary. I know it is still in there somewhere. Anyway, good for you with the WA accomplishments and the university education. Keep up the hard work.

Hello Zarina, I would like to thank you for allowing me to be a part of your network. I have returned the favor. I'm new here but I have already found out just how wonderful this program and this community are. I look forward to learning from reading your posts and your training. I'm a pretty old dog trying to learn new tricks. With your help and the help of the others here at WA, I just may learn a new trick or two. Hope you have a merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Hello Zarina,
thank you for such an encouraging and welcoming introduction and thanks for the follow, I've followed you back. I am sure I will be able to learn a lot from you, so I'm keeping an eye out for you posts :-) My progress through the training is slow but steady, wish I could do more every day but with small children family life is very busy, so I am bevaering away a little bit every evening. The training is amazing! All the best to you!

HI Zarina,

Wow, speaking 4 different languages is really impressive and I am guessing is a great asset to your online business.

Very nice profile picture of you on the Bridge overlooking the river, is that shot taken in Kyle&Carson; country, Canada?

I thank you for following me and I wish you the very best in all aspects of life.

It is great meeting you and c u along the way through our journey in WA.

Cheers,

Hey Brad,

Still haven't figured out how to use languages in my online business - I have a passion for it but I definitely don't feel like writing about it - I don't even know how much content I can write. I will think about it - but I enjoy learning so for now ill focus on that.

As for the pic - actually it was taken in Geneva, but myself I am from Toronto.

Thanks!

Hi Zarina! Thanks for following me. You have great energy! Could you tell me why you think that your Internet business is going nowhere? I have just gotten started myself, so it would be helpful to know. There are some very successful people in the online business, such as

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/leoemery

Perhaps you could check out his profile and see what he does to make it happen? You know what they say? If you want to be successful, look around for those who are successful and emulate them . . . and it will work for you too!

I'll get to reading your posts.

Peace - William

Zarina, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Zarina.

Good afternoon Zarina,

With every new language, one learns a whole new world opens. You can read books without the translated version, like that being able to understand the writer much better. I left Holland at the age of 15 to go and study languages in various European countries, now looking back on all these years I am very grateful my parents enabled me to have this kind of education.
Please have a look at my post on the world library and my last one on the coming documentary, I think you will find it interesting.
Thank you for the follow and good luck,

Regards, Taetske

Hey Zarina! Just saw some of your blog posts and some of the great results you've been seeing in the SERPs! Keep at it and eventually you'll get there. One thing I've learned is that if you make every article the best it can be (i.e. well-researched, lots of great content) then you will be maximizing your possible rankings in Google. I aim for AT LEAST 1500 words of content these days, ideally more.

Also great to see a fellow Torontonian on here! I'm relatively new to the city but loving it so far :)

Hey Joseph!!

I am so surprised our paths didn't cross before here, it says that you've been at WA since 2010!!!

Thank you for your kind words and your support!! It means a lot, given that I still consider myself a newbie.

I actually live in Newmarket now but I would love to get together with you for a cup of coffee :) (Though this month lots of stuff going on but starting next month, should be good). I don't know anyone from WA who lives here and it would be awesome to connect :)

Cheers,
Zarina

Hi Zarina!

Sure thing! It would actually be pretty cool to connect with someone from WA out there in the real world :) Just drop me a message anytime you're thinking of coming into the city. I know probably TOO many coffee shops here (I tend to hang out at them a lot haha).

And yea, I joined in 2010 and picked up as much as I could from the training. Then I got busy with my own websites and IM and I was on hiatus from WA for quite a while. But I'm back now and eager to engage a bit more with the community here. WA is a pretty cool place!

Hello Zarina. Thanks for following me back. Well, a couple of things in common, I used my languages skills here in Toronto and now retired from being a Court and Immigration Interpreter/Translator. I still work, mostly volunteering with the Spanish community and have fairly good knowledge of Italian, Portuguese and French comprehension. I enjoy this eCommerce business ... keeps me busy.

Nice to meet you here Zarina. Thank you for your follow back. How are you doing after one and halve years with WA? Wonder what is your background? From your name and the language you chose to learn I assume that you have some ancestral connections with Russia? But of course I can be wrong...
Please keep in touch.

Hello fellow Canadian! Thanks for the follow. I am following back.

Your profile gave me a bit of a laugh because aside from speaking English and French, I also studied Russian and Spanish in CEGEP.... I've lost all but the most basic words and phrases unfortunately, but I love languages. I'm currently working a bit on Irish, but rather casually, as WA and home life fill most of my free time.

Hi, Craig!

I'm originally from Montreal, but we moved a few years ago to Gatineau because my wife took a job at the Ottawa hospital.

Yes, languages are awesome. I have always loved them and always wanted to work with the written word, which I am hoping WA will allow me to do!

Oh yeah, don't worry about it the day will definitely come if you believe in it and do the work. One step at a time!

I noticed that you are here since last year and yet don't have any tutorials. WA tutorials are a great way to make your first money if you didn't know this, more info here: I have great associations with Gatineau - never been there but met two girls from Gatineau during my Spanish program in Mexico, and they are awesome :)

Are you ever in Toronto?

Not terribly often but from time to time.


I've been hesitant to do tutorials simply because I figure I ask have so much still to learn. That and the fact that almost everything has already been covered dozens of times.

Hey just a question as its just my first week to WA- How did you come across my profile? Ive got quite a few 'friends' in such a short time which is awesome, i just dont know how people are stumbling across my feed or profile. I must admit ive not been poking around much, ive been concentrating on training so this answer might be pretty obvious..
Any way, thanks again and best of luck cranking your business x

Hi Kasotty, I'm Warren... I'm very new to all of this but, I've noticed that you're ranked 65 (impressive). Therefore, it's a probability that, you're a very busy young lady with a repetitious to do list I presume, with very little time to do anything else... So, I was inquiring about (if it's probable) your aid & assist in your step-by-step training in lamens terms, until I'm advanced or able enough to stand alone. As if, I was a child crawling before I could learn to walk. Meaning, with your help It'll be possible for me to move-up in the ranks & succeed at being successful in all my endeavors... To make a long story short, will you help me? "AS A MAN THINK SO IS HE"!
