About KobusLouw
Joined September 2014
Hey Everyone, Kobus here.

I am a very happy customer here at WA University. The omunity here is just awesome and all the support is super cool.

My website: http://mymarketingcorner.com/

You can read my Blog just below my profile picture:
What my Life was like when I joined WA and now - Success

It's now 6 months since I have joined and I am reaping the rewards. Sales are coming in and it is so awesome.Patience is a vertue, so be patient guys. All in good time, just like Kyle explained to me when I started out!

My site is on the 1st page of Google for a lot of high competition keywords. Jaaxy really helped me out there!

Anyways, goodluck everyone.

- My hobbies and things I like:

F1 racing, Moto GP, Barbequing, Cooking, Building stuff (with wood, metal, fiber glass etc), Hanging in Coffee Shops, Love the beach.

- Things I am good at:

Graphic Designing, Building Sound Systems for Cars and hoping to add "Successful Webmaster" to this as well. ;)

* I am a Christian. I am not perfect by any means, but I love Jesus and I believe that He leads us on the path we need to be, If we would listen to HIM, so that we may end up at He's goal for our lives, "Having Life in Abundance" in all aspects of our lives, Spiritually and also Worldly.

That's me in a CRAZY little Nutshell...... :)

God Bless :)

Welcome Kobusslouw's to WA family. It is a very unique university with a magnitude of different resources and expertise that caters to specific needs.However, it takes an individualistic approach to empower its students which brings out talents that he or she is unaware of. Again, you have made good a choice. Blessings

Hello KobusLouw, Thank you for following me. Every time someone clicks my “Follow Me” link, I jump and think I need to step on the gas with my internet building program. This really does feel good when people I don’t know are pushing me, and pushing me, and pushing me. This week, I have prioritized some important work, painting the exterior of my home and securing a some key information to develop traffic. Yahoo, yahoo, yahoo, it took me a couple of days, but, I HAVE MY INFO. The house… it still needs painting. I am looking forward to generating Boo Coo traffic, soon. I only need a few landing pages, a few other things, and I’m gone! My super-duper advice to you is, put a smile on your face, jump into building your internet business, enjoy the training, enjoy the WA community, always ask for help or direction, and hang on to your successful journey. You’re going to love it. AAFitch

Wow Rockford Fosgate Car Audio installer? I always loved that brand, I competed in SPL competitions around 14 years ago and won a few events. I had 8 15'' mtx subs in the back of a station wagon, and also 6 15" mtx subs on a wall behind the front seats of a sedan.

I love earthquake amps and have a PHD 3 laying around. How long have you been doing that for?

KobusLouw Premium
Hey Max!

Hahaha, awesome to hear that someone else has the same interests. I did car Audio for about 11 years. I had many cars featured in magazines here in South Africa.

Yea, some of the products that I was a Qualified installer for was Rockford, MTX, Boston acoustics, JL Audio, Zapco, Soundstream and so on.

I have done a few sedans with 6 woofers in a wall behind the seats as well but my main specialty was custom sound quality systems. I have won many awards with customers cars at sound offs and that was awesome. I always tried to build the systems as fancy as I could, praying them, using suede, leather and so on! The same kinda of stuff that West Coast Customs did.

You can see some of the cars here:
Its a Renault Megan

I did however build a lot of cars but company owners at that time never really cared much for putting pictures on the web, never mind having websites. Typical 3rd world mentality! uuurgh. Whish I had pics of all the stuff I had build!! :(

Anyways, nice meeting you!

Enjoy your day!

Hello Kobus, you're a newbie but you have previous experience which is a plus. I'm all green, but that's ok, this place is genuine, and just starting my second week, I can't say enough for the leaders and the ones who reach out to help the newbies. It's also great to meet a fellow christian. So we know without Him we can do nothing, keep your priorities right and we will both have great success stories in a few months.....hopefully sooner :) God bless,

Hey Jim, thank you for the message! Yes, through Jesus we can do anything! I am so looking forward too a few months from now, I have faith that the desert I was in is now in the past and gone. Its now time to start flying like the Eagles!

Jim if you need any help with WordPress, Plugins etc. let me know, I will help where I can. I have build quite a few WP websites before for Company's etc. and I have good knowledge of how it works. I have how ever picked up a few more tips from WA, so that is very helpful!

Have a great day and may God Bless you too!

To be honest, I'm stuck. In a week, I got my " about me" page done with a photo.. I'm working with an iPad. My desktop died. When you've never done this before it's intimidating and I've literally spent hours. Ive watched if not all the videos, most of them. I tried following several YouTube "how to build a wordPress website from scratch" and I can't find one with the 4.0 version. I can't go much further in my training till I get my site done. I've notified my mentor. He's on the other side of the planet. Lol , you asked for it. I don't know exactly how to word questions to the team here. I know this will pass and it's probably easier than it seems. I try to follow the tutorial in the back but even that's hard to follow.
So my new friend and brother, any suggestions would be welcome.
Jim
Reply
KobusLouw Premium
Hey JIm, wow! That does sound like your in a pickle man!!

I have to be honest, I have no iPad experience, so I am not sure how WP Admin would actually be laid out on it. However, there isn't much difference between the WP version that Kyle uses in the videos versus WP 4.0 But again, I work from my Laptop, not an iPad, so I don't know how different it might be laid out.

Yea, the idea of your mentor being on the other side of the planet does provide for some frustrations! Uuuuuurgh, lol

I am trying to understand your question, but could you be a bit more specific with what you are actually struggling with? How to navigate the WP Admin area, building pages, setting up plugins etc?

A tip though, try and get your desktop up and running ASAP, life will be so much easier! What exactly happened that it died? I fix pc's in my spare time.

Let me know!
Reply
keymanmd Premium
I'm stuck with the iPad till I get some cash flow. My desktop was ancient and just died. WP works on the iPad so there's no problem there. I think I'm ok with plugins, Themes come with 4 and I just activate them. It's filling in the spaces, getting images in the right spot, how to get the image from a free site to my page. A bunch of little startup things. I haven't found out yet how to put the link up to pay for a product and how I would get credit for it. Ex. Amazon product. That's a start.
It's almost 1am here, where do you live? I'll need to go to bed soon, so if I don't respond to your next message, I will tomorrow.
Thanks so much Kobus.
Blessings,
Jim

Hey Jim, its like 08:00 am here by me! So you are also on the other side of the planet! Lol!!

For help with AMazon, I suggest you get in contact with Teacup, she seems clued up on that. https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/teacup

For images, I suggest you download them to your iPad first, then upload them into WP Media. Once you start editing a page, you can click with your cursor on the area where you want the image and then click add media in the edit page toolbar. Depending on where you clicked, the image will appear there about. Then click on the image, (the edit button) and you can choose the alt text, the spacing (left, right, none) and add a link to an affiliate product etc.

So, then when someone clicks the image, they will be taken to that page of the product you are promoting.

Hope that helps for now?

Let me know

Hallo Kobus! Just read your profile message and I wanted to just throw in my support too. I know very little about all of this so can only support you as a fellow countryman. See we're about the same age in a similar situation. I believe with you brother. Your trust is in the right place. Let's make this work bigtime. Keep your chin up and soldier on. WA seems like a great place to be. Let us make the most of this opportunity!

Hey Christiaan. Jammer ek kom nou eers terug na jou toe. Thanks for the positive support, things have been really hectic the last 2 weeks. Been doing what I can to generate the funds to pay for all of this! But all is good and I am busy building my site already! How far are you already?

Anyways, jy moet n Leka dag he hoor en hou aan en hou moed!!
