About Layne
Joined June 2016
Hey Guys!

I'm happy to be here and learn about internet marketing from all of you. I am always looking for new and exciting opportunities like this.

About me? I recently started learning to cook, I mean REALLY cook! I never knew it could be so easy, and fun.

I love to travel, most recently, my wife and I went to the Peruvian jungle. We love learning about different cultures and seeing how much we really have in common.

I hope to find some support here as I try to figure out how to make some money from home.

Hello Layne. I've just been reading a blog post of yours about a mental health site you set up and would like some advice...
I have just started on WA and am thinking about my niche. Something I know a lot about and can write passionately about is mental health. I just wanted to know what kind of products you place on your site in order to monetise it? Look forward to your reply.

Hi. Welcome to WA. You have just gotten yourself into the vehicle to financial freedom. As the driver, you can either reach there faster or later. It's all up to you. It can be a bumpy ride and lots of frustrations. But with the support from WA community and 'cos you are in the right vehicle (WA) it isn't that bad.

Thanks Mike. I've actually been premium for a while but let my subscription lapse because I was lacking time to dedicate to the site and am deciding to get back on it.

Layne, 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 Layne.

Thanks for the message Kyle. I have finished the certification course and have made my first couple sales. I decided to jump into the bootcamp course while continuing to write 1-2 articles for my Niche site BipolarAndAlive.com I am also learning about email marketing so that will be one of my themes in my WA site. I appreciate taking the time to send me a message.

Excellent to hear Layne, sounds like you are making some good progress. As you continue to move forward within the training you are going to truly see your business take shape.

Just one suggestion here, your header image is far too large and takes away from your actual content. People need to scroll down in order to see your content. The visuals and the relevant imagery should be placed directly inside your content instead of a static and overwhelming header that shows on every page.

I would either minimize this or remove it altogether, it is not offering any value to your end user and is impacting their experience in a negative way.

If you do need anything going forward, just let me know. ;)

Good day, Layne and thanks for following me. Will follow you as well.

Enjoyed our brief conversation in the Chat Room. I'm not that major knowledgeable so I hope that what I had to offer was of some help. If not CraigO knows a whole lot more and there are many more as well. Welcome to WA and I hope you continue to learn and progress in this journey you are on. All the best.

I love traveling! Good luck with everything! That's awesome you are learning to cook too! I can't cook very well unless it is a soup. :)

Layne Premium
I never liked to cook before, but now it's like my favorite thing to do

Celecity Premium
I don't mind cooking, but anything that sizzles makes me anxious for some reason XD haha. Soup is good for me cause its slow and the bubbling calms me lol.
Reply
Layne Premium
Soup is great, there's so many different ones you can make to so you should never get bored with the variety. If you don't like the sizzling, baking is a good option, it's usually healthier too. Boiling your chicken instead of frying it might calm your nerves :)

Hi Layne - glad you decided to become a premium member, what a wise choice! I am sure you have seen the multitudes of lessons that are available on here, and they are growing daily! I find it amazing!

I have been an entrepreneur for 10 years, and started working online about three years ago, but have only found WA this year. I only wish I had found it sooner!

Anyways, if you need any help with anything, drop me a line, I am always there to support fellow WA members. And I do post a blog about marketing strategies right here on site, almost every day! Just click on my profile and you can see the blog posts there.

Nice to meet you!

Claudia

Hey Layne, it's great to see you're already taking action. I know you're probably busy trying to learn more, but I just thought I'd check on you and see how things are going. Hope you're enjoying things so far!

Layne Premium
Thanks for checkin' on me! I have one more lesson in course 1. I was thinking of working through the bootcamp next. I am feeling the momentum and look forward to learning more.
Reply
johncruz Premium
You really only need one or the other as the bootcamp is designed mainly for the make money online niche.
Reply
johncruz Premium
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! :)

John thanks for you offer the help. What do you think about a meal planning and exercise site for people with Bipolar Disorder and Depression. I have struggled with this my whole life and have a bit of insight there. My only concern is attaching my name to the blog. I am weary because of future employment. It's technically illegal to deny employment because of mental health reason, but there's still a big stigma and the first thing employers do is google job candidates, don't want to scare them away. What do you think?
Reply
johncruz Premium
Honestly man, you can do great with that niche and you can do a lot more than ANY other job out there from the internet so don't worry about anyone else but yourself. Build out your business and you will see the true potential of the internet. What you will learn here will beat anything you know of. For only 2 years short and I now work from home full-time. There is nothing like this out there.

Layne Premium
Thanks man. I'm fluent in Spanish too, do you think I could do a Spanish site?
Reply
johncruz Premium
You definitely can and it's really up to you. I do recommend you do your site in english and then use a plugin to have your readers translate it into Spanish from there.

johncruz Premium
You have all the support here Layne and you are definitely in the right place. I actually just started to cook too man, so it's pretty funny how we've crossed paths. It really amazes me at how you can put little ingredients together and make such a tasty dish! I'm actually thinking about starting another site on cooking since I like it so much, but I think I have enough on my plate. No pun intended. lol

What's up Layne and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

Just thought I'd welcome you and help you get started on the right track, as I know how it is to land somewhere without any direction.

You will learn a lot within the next few days and you will meet a bunch of new people, who will help you along the way so don't be afraid to ask any questions.

As a new member here, you want to put up a pic (preferably of yourself) and say a little something about you so that it can be easier for others to help you.

To start the training, just head over to the Online Entrepreneur Certification getting started course (Level 1). This is a task based course that will get you taking action on daily tasks that will lead to you building web assets right away.

Here is the link that you will see within your main menu labeled "Get Started Here". Just take a look around, get to know how the site works, and enjoy what your free membership has to offer. Let me know if you have any questions and I will clear up any confusion.

Talk to you soon,


- John
