About KoenGerard
Joined May 2019
Hello everybody. My name is Koen. I am from Belgium.
( koengerard.com) I am very excited about affiliate marketing. I use to run my own company for more than 15 years. I hardly did any sales on the internet, because to be honest: I did not really believe in it and I did not have any clue how to do it. NOW, I realize that this couldn't be further from the truth !!! So, Here I am, Beginning all over again, version 2. 0, but hopefully this time with the right knowledge. I hope to meet a lot of people here, to learn, to share, to hang out and to have a blast. I believe that success is on the way.

Hi Koen, how are you going? I am reaching out to my network of followers here. I want us to support each other. I have an inspiring family travel blog that I want to share with the world. check it out here. https://gadsventure.com

Would you please do me a favour and give me a follow on https://facebook.com/gadsventure and https://instagram.com/gadsventure and https://pinterest.com.au/gadsventuretime https://twitter.com/gadsventure https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvoxFmP6fBBy7ewqCZgUkaQ if you wouldn't mind? It will only take a second and I hope you may even be inspired by some of our content!

My family of 6 have burned our bridges and invested everything we have to travel the world and blog about it for other families. We have sold everything and left Australia in order to make it happen. And we currently sit in Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand!

Hello again, Koen! 😊

I've just replied to your message on my profile page.

Thanks for following me and joining my network. I've returned the compliment and followed you back, and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. WA is a great community. There is so much to learn. I am here most days. I learn something new every day.

I've been a Premium member of Wealthy Affiliate for two years, and I don't regret one day! I'm now a member of the 2020 Super Affiliate Challenge. I'll see it through to the end, and I'm determined to be at the Las Vegas Super Affiliate Conference next year.

Keep moving ahead. However, your day may be, take a little step forward. Some days you'll make significant strikes, other days you will not, but do something every day, however small in building your business.

Best wishes,
Paul.
Be Happy!

Hey, Angelique or do I say Hallo? Alles goed ? I will talk further in English . My feedback for your website:
When you come on your site, the first thing you see is nice clean, organized straight to the topic. I really like that. Good job and nicely organized.
I have read your posts:
If I was you, the post about explaining the exercises: please use clear pictures or a youtube video there. It will make it a lot easier for people that don't have any experience.
About the topic: I love it.
I run every week, do some power training ( if i feel up to). I am 43 years old I start knowing my body. What I have learned over the years is :Stretching: before you start and when you finish.
Maybe a post about how to stretch, why and a stretching routine?
My best friend is a Bikram Yoga teacher. She has experience with people that are injured, to bring them back with yoga. It really works also for me. If I do, 2 or 3 times Bikram yoga in a week, I have a lot fewer injuries if I sport.
About the running shoes: What is your Idea about the rubber shoes where your toes are separated?
I hope this was helpfull? If I can do anything, just ask
Nice meeting you. Koen

~Hallo Koen! So we can speak Dutch? But in this public area maybe better to continue in English.
Thanks for your feedback. Indeed I will need to add either photos or videos to the exercises . I could find rthe right ones in the royalty free websites so Im gonna make them myself. Even more personal to see me on my website ;)

Stretching and runners yoga are actually the next topics. I have a list of ideas on "several topics regarding running" but always thankful for letting me know you would like to read about.

Those rubber shoes: I really have no idea, maybe they are very comfy. On shoes the opinions are so divers. I like good supporting shock absorbing shoes. Especially after my previous injury. But according to many others the shock absorption should come from better running techniques. Anyway: it's an interesting topic that could start a meaningful discussion. I will look into that later on.

What's your website? Any blogs you need comments on?

Hey Angelique, just started with my website:
Koengerard.com, if you want to take a look an give me some feedback, this would be super.
About the rubber shoes, 2 years ago, I was training with the Shaolin kung fu monks in Germany. Some of the guys were running barefoot, others with rubber shoes to get used to it.
They told me that running barefoot is actually the best you can do but you have to train yourself to get used to it again.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Premium!

Glad that you joined us.

WA is an amazing environment to learn and apply our skills towards creating an online business. I tried to do this alone before and was completely lost.

Now I know why.

There are so many tricks of the trade and it saves so much time having it all laid out clearly in the WA training programs.

Keep following the training and exercises every day. Give it a year to see significant results. You'll be a happy camper by then. We all make progress at different rates and it is possible to see meaningful results in 4-6 months. Google cannot be rushed.

Google rewards people with websites that provide value to their visitors. It helps to boost their ad revenue of course! And that helps your websites get high rankings. But it takes time to build credibility. Once they realize your site is an authority site, good things will happen faster.

When you get stuck, and you will, just ask for help in the discussion area located below each lesson. Scroll down to find it. Another member who has the answer will get back to you promptly.

In the meantime have fun with the program. Much success to you.

Cheers!

Edwin

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 Jonathan, would be nice to stay in contact . I have done a lot or research, but I am not sure how to make it big , In my point of view , I think a lot of people try but unfortunately only a very small percentage hits the jackpot , so lets hope we hit the jackpot . Nice meeting you

Hey Koen, Jack here. Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

Before you start making money, there are just 5 things you need to know.

1) I've recently created a YouTube Channel dedicated to sharing my knowledge and experience with affiliate marketing. I think that you are going to get a lot of value from it, so do subscribe to my Channel. It is brand new (as of 5 September 2018), so pardon me if there is only a few videos. I will continue to post the training videos on the channel every week. Here's the link to my YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCY7IhZ5Uq_qFB9PgN8Rjy3g

2) Subscribe to my 10 day email course to help you get started (if you haven't already). Please let me know your email address so that I can put you on the list.

3) Those who ask questions, interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their goals. Watch this video here to learn how to maximize your community reach in WA More buddies means more support. More support means more success.

4) You can get started learning how to make money by doing your Level 1 Certification Course. Here's the link to the course: Remember that you can ask any questions you want in the live chat, on your personal blog, or in the Getting Started Classroom here:

And, don't forget that I am always around to help you out. You can contact me anytime through my personal email address: mailto:jackcao@sproutmarketer.com.

Also, in case you haven't heard my stories about how I made my first dollar online to how I fired my boss and never looked back, you can check them out here. Many WA members find them inspiring and it helps them understand the emotion and psychology about being a true internet entrepreneur:
