About KeithBunge
Joined February 2015
I am retired at 63. I took a few programming classes at Clover Park Technical College here in Washington state. I focused more on programming languages than on HTML & CSS. I did have the basics though. I had to retire due to problems walking. So I am now looking to supplement my income with an Internet business.

I spent 2 years in 2010 and 2011 going back to college. I spent the first year in the University of Phoenix. I thought it was worthless but have found now that I am doing this work that I really did learn something. What I learned there was how to properly research and write an opinion or paper on what I found.
I spent one year at Clover Park. This was spent actually learning programming. I learned to use Visual Basic. I learned Java which is an object oriented programming and helps take you a step above simple programming. I was not interested but I had a class on HTML and CSS and thought I would never use it. How wrong I was. This and SQL Server were classes I was required to take and now I am glad that I did.

My education has been continued here at Wealthy Affiliate. I spent 3 years since finishing school thinking about starting an online business. I also read multiple books on affiliate marketing. But it was not until I came to this program that I simply jumped into it and started writing content for a website. I had played around with it but was not ready to be serious about it until I found a product that I thought had enough value to promote.

The best thing about this next step of my education is that it demands you take action and do the work. The interactive part of the education is very important as you get feedback immediately.

Now that I have been here for almost 2 months I have made a decision. I must continue my education as it relates to this site. Not just the classes here. But I am starting to learn PHP and JavaScript since JavaScript is used in conjunction with PHP in Word Press sites to retrieve information and make the website more interactive with the viewer.

I see that Magistudios uses Joomla and I have wrestled between using Joomla and Dreamweaver but I have already got a simple understanding of the Dreamweaver platform so I have gone this way. I have lost Dreamweaver due to a computer crash. They no longer support the sold version and now they are a subscription based software with a monthly fee. I was allowed to set it up once after they started this process and once the computer was gone they will not allow me to reinstall it but only use it in the cloud if I pay.

For now I am satisfied with the simple WordPress dashboard and at my level of understanding it will fulfill my immediate needs. I did put together a website that I let expire as I spent the last 2 years studying with Mr. Keshe about plasma physics and found that without the help here at Wealthy Affiliate I could never activate the plugins and many other problems I had using a generic WordPress theme. It was up for a year and I still use the plasma pen or healing wand that I built but not much else from the "plasma technology". The Iranian nuclear physicist that taught became far more political than a teaching guru and he lost me and my interest.

You absolutely can and you will achieve these goals (and likely beyond) Keith! Dedicate yourself to your goals and take action on what you learn here. Action leads to success and I have never seen anyone fail that doesn't quit.

I look forward to working with you and do let me know if you need a hand along the way. :)

Congrats on going premium! What's the next goal?

My first goal is to pick a niche. I feel like I must first research the wholesale prices of small quantities of whatever I select to find a product which I can put in Amazon warehouses and try to get to the buy box. I need products with at least a 50% profit margin to give Amazon their percentage and still make enough to put half into my pocket. I think this is a realistic goal.

Hello Keith, I was wondering if you place the WA banner as a link.

I started this site with just that in mind but have abandoned the idea as too labor intensive since it would mean at least twice a week or every day I would have to update and approve all the comments. Unless I did it as a forum which was suggested. It is all I can do to go over all the material and try to finish my affiliate site. So all my efforts are now there. I need to simply go forward with one thing at a time.
I thought you were responding to my other site which I had abandoned.

Keith, in simple words: choose the link of the banner you like, click in that link and press CTRL A. Then go to your website, click where you want the banner to be seen. Then (at the top) click a chain link (looks like two links of a chain). A pop up window will open: in the first field, take out the https or what is there and click there and press CTRL V. You then will paste the link banner there. In that same window there is a check mark box, check it.
Then go to see your page, your banner should be seen and if anybody clicks it, the visitor will be brought to Wealthy Affiliate with your ID.
Kyle has a video in which you see this steps. I will try to look it for you.
If I could do it, anybody can do it.

Is it possible to make a site that allows posting in the comments section without having to approve them each individually. I would like to have a site that is a ride share site for a specific business. I want people to post their name and number to offer a ride share. It is too labor intensive if all comments need to be approved.

Hello Keith,

I just found you through the thoughtful comment you left for someone else...oops didn't get that name for you here. I thought, good one, I need to come over to meet him...so here I am, will tap follow now.

Here is something that I have learned, even through the life stuff that can stretch one's access to time for working on your site, just doing the lessons and related tasks will powerfully move your online business into existence. How cool is that!!

I'm looking for what you will creatively bubble to the surface.

Linda

Keith, 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 Keith.

Thanks so much for the offer but you have done too good of a job providing the answers in the question box. I am very satisfied so far with my progress. I am almost through #6 and will not finish it until after the weekend. But I am hitting my goal of 4 hours a day minimum. I also am simplifying and think I may have a very minimal simple web site for the first attempt. I am finding all my answers and simply doing one thing at a time. The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step.

Work at your own pace, this is definitely not a race and work through this when you get a chance. I personally started while full time in college, so I can totally relate to your situation.

As you start to see progress and results, you will naturally dedicate more time to your business, but I can absolutely assure you that with some hard work and dedication here, you are going to see results.

The first step is followed by the second followed by the....all natural and part of the process. If you are moving forward, you are moving in the right direction.

I am doing this. I hit a wall and took yesterday off. I am now catching up and answering all the people who are following me. I like to see who they are and try to respond to their profile in a personal way. It gives me inspiration to see other people who are on the same journey as I am.

Hey Keith, great to have you here. I felt the same way when I was starting out, looking for an opportunity to supplement my income.

To be honest with you, there is no better way to do this than within the online world and you have absolutely everything you need here at WA to do this (including the support channels).

Just thought I would pop in and say hi and simply drop me a reply if you need a hand with anything moving forward.

PS. Hope you are having a fantastic week thus far!
