About KShepherd1
Joined December 2016
I'm new to the online world and have had an interest in persuing an online business for quite some time but never knew how to start. When I started I was bombarded with so much information it was overwhelming.
I feel ready to take action and felt wealthy affiliate was a good idea so here I go.
I'm currently working 12 hour days working with kids and looking for something different. I'm interested in health, sustainability, spirituality, self help and helping people.

My goal is to leave my current job, move to the country and work from home and make enough money to support my family. I'm looking forward to this adventure.

Its great hearing your aspirations and dreams K. The internet is flooded with so many negative things. But joining Wealth Affiliate gives me a much more comfortable place to learn how to make extra income online. Go for it! You have great intentions and I am sure you will succeed. God Bless

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 for reaching out as I'm trying to sort a few things out. I have been advised to make a website whereby I own it. I believe with WA this isn't the scenario. You have to be a member to access your website. Do you know how to build a website whereby I own my passwords and pay a lump sum?

I've chosen a niche to do with vintage & nostalgia. Have been researching wholesalers and now required to get an ABN (Australian Business Number).

Thanks for your help.

Thank you for following me. I've followed you back. Please feel free to reach out to me for any assistance here on WA. I am committed to building success and helping others do the same. Good luck to you.

I have managed to build a SOLID stream of income, and if you want to private message me I would be more than happy to network with you and share exactly what it is that I do and how I do it. I had some great mentors when I first started and I am looking for someone to mentor myself. I want to be that mentor for you! It is completely achievable and I've managed to tap into a niche that has AMAZING growth potential. I'm also more than willing to learn from you.

Hope to speak with you soon. Thank you.

Hello Kirsty and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you will have realized by now that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck then can I suggest you browse some of the 280+ blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me so thank you for the follow and I will follow you as well.
Enjoy your day.

Thanks for the welcome message. WOW 280+ blogs that is my next task writing quality content for my specific niche. I will endeavour to look through your blogs for insight and to keep me on track. There is definitely a lot to absorb as a newbie, have to start somewhere!

My day is just beginning in Brisbane Australia hoping it isn't 37 degrees like yesterday.

Best wishes,

Kristy

I use a website traffic tool and it just left Brisbane about an hour ago.
Moving across to Perth now then up into Indonesia before hitting Africa.

You get stuck on anything you get in touch.
Absolutely no point in struggling on your own.
Its 8.35 pm here in Scotland and time I was in a hot bath.
Maybe catch you tomorrow.

First tip -

Its a good idea (only if you want to) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.
Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing but.
But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.

Thanks for your support Robert if I do get stuck I will be in touch. I'm working on choosing a domain name for an e-commerce site I will do some research but if I get stuck I will ask you.

Thanks for the tip about liking comments I just liked yours.

Your having a hot bath I'm having cold showers.

Robert-A Premium
Too hot for you over there - lucky girl coz its freezing here.
Yes please get in touch.
Think long and hard about a name for your e-commerce site.
Think about what you want to sell/promote on your site and name it accordingly.
Also think about Branding yourself.
So perhaps a good name would be Kirstysstore or kirstysonlinestrore or kirstyssonlineshop etc etc etc
I'm sure you get the idea.
or
depending on your interest.
For example
kirtsyspetshop
kirstyshealthstore
kirstystravelblog

As I said think about it because once chosen you cannot change it.

Enjoy your Thursday/Friday.

THANK YOU Robert for your insight for choosing a domain. I will definitely think long and hard and write down a plan to get direction.

1. What exactly I want to sell
2. How I'm going to source the products
3. Am I going to use shopify, ebay or start my own e-commerce store

You have definitely got me thinking.

Have a great day.

Good that I have got you thinking because most newbies to WA just jump in and make an awful lot of mistakes which of course they have to rectify (if they can).
So much can go wrong when you first start out so it makes sense to follow in the footsteps of those who have gone before.

Yes I can see how that can happen making a lot of mistakes early as a newbie fingers crossed that's not me.
Off to bed for me up at 5am to do more research on WA before going to my day job working with children.

Kristy, 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 Kristy.

Hi Kyle,

I'm SLOWLY getting things up and running. For me content is my hardest obstacle I know with time this will be easier. I was thinking of having a break as I'm trying to make it happen but my work takes a lot of time away from my online success.
I come home after work log on and get through as much as I can. I did ask for feedback from the community about my website but didn't receive anything as yet. I should ask you though.

Decision time. I know it's an awesome community but if I'm not going to have time to invest, I'm going to be wasting $478 Australian Dollars.

Maybe I need to push through this overwhelming feeling. Can I get you to provide feedback on my website to see how I'm going?

Thanks
Kristy

If you ever want a website review from the community, I highly recommend that you take advantage of the SiteFeedback system here at Wealthy Affiliate.

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/website-feedback

This is a give and take system, meaning that as you offer others feedback on your website you are going to earn credits so you can request reviews from others. This is a pay it forward community afterall. :)

In terms of being overwhelmed, no business was created in a week, month or even a year. It is a collection of what you do on your day to day activities that will lead to a much more substantial business. Anything new will be a little overwhelming, but embrace it. It is just a matter of learning something new, no different than riding a bike!

Here to help you every step of the way and I can give you feedback on your site if you provide me with the URL.
Reply
KShepherd1 Premium
Thanks for the insight regarding the website feedback link.

Here's my URL link:

http://legitonlinework.siterubix.com/

It's very basic at the moment but getting there.

I really appreciate your constructive feedback I know time is scare for a lot of people.

Thanks a million.

Overall, heading in the right direction here. I like your theme choice (nice and simply and puts emphasis on the content), your about me page is great, now it is just a matter of moving forward with the training and building out your content.

THANKYOU so much for giving me this feedback. Feel a lot better to stay a member and persevere with your great training.
My next step is to research rules e.g. using images in website I know there is info in WA.
Thanks for support.

There are many ways in which you can find and add images to your website. I have outlined this within a video walk-through that I created on images. This is very thorough and will give you a lot of great ideas as to how you can find and incorporate images on your website. Also, do know that if you are an affiliate of Amazon you can use any of the images (product) from their website on your website, which opens you up to an image bank of MILLIONS of images.

There are also other CC0 sites out there that you can leverage. These are free public domain images to use how you wish.

Welcome k ....is that Kate Shepherd? the same as one of New Zealand's most famous suffragette women and featured on our $10 note!!!

My focus is now all about helping others in my small community which is what I am doing here to build a website that reaches out to those who need help, compassion.

Thanks KiwiGeorge, No I'm not a Kate I'm Kristy. I love your focus helping others all the best with the website.

Hi Kristy, yes my focus is helping the mothers who are on their own and struggle to raise their young children, earn a living, run a home and have a life!

So I give them my time to free up their time, just to soften the edges and give the time to breathe.

Thanks for the follow and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.

Great profile. I can imagine that you would, indeed, like to leave a 12 hr/ day job. That's pretty rough unless it's something that you love.

Sounds like you have some great potential niches. I wish you success in whatever you choose!

Greetings Kristy! Thanks for the "flollow" and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!!!

I too, had been searching, looking for a legitimate way to earn income online. I knew nothing of affiliate marketing before coming to this community. Lots of information, but lovin' every minute of the process!

All the best in saying goodbye to that 12 hour job Kristy!

Greetings Veroncia!

So looking forward to getting into a routine to make this happen it has been a long term goal of mine. From what I read on WA focus on doing the course step by step and implementing it. I think for me building my confidence to implement is the major hurdle.

Bring on success for 2017.

Thank you wish your wishes in saying goodbye to my 12 hour job that is a huge motivator as well plus moving to the country in Queensland, Australia.

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

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made 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 have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link on the right (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016-2017. See you around, Greetings Loes
