Hey it's great to be here, I love the atmosphere here and I especially love the fact that I'm surrounded by so many positive and like minded people.

I've been making a full time income online since 2005. Most of that behind the scenes, I'm primarily an affiliate marketer, but I also market locally and the work I do for my clients is - web design, SEO, video production, logo creation, graphics stuff like that.

I've also been involved with radio as an on air personality, producer, writer and recording engineer.

Now it's time to jump out front.

I'm here to share what I know and help when ever I can. And I'm also here to learn from all you wonderful people.

If I can just share one thing, remember this is a marathon not a sprint, things take time but if you stay focused and keep taking one positive step towards your goals each day then you WILL succeed.

Before you head out and check out everything here - make sure to follow me so I can follow you back and this way I can network with you personally.

And above all make sure you're having FUN!!! Because if you're not having fun doing what you're doing then what's the point of doing it.

I believe in you!!

This should help you figure out what's going on. https://www.mhthemes.com/support/solving-http-errors-when-uploading-images-in-wordpress/

Many times it's because of a plugin conflict - to find out if it is a plugin problem, disable your plugins and try upoading an image.

If things go well, activate one plugin at a time and then upload another image - repeat this until you find the problem plugin or you confirm it's not a plugin issue.

Hope that helps

Thanks for the follow. I hope hope to aspire others like you in the WA community. As newbie in WA what words of wisdom can you tell me about WA community. Is WA really rewarding and have you been able to travel and have financial freedom? Do you have any other source of income or WA is sufficient enough to make a decent living?

I have been browsing chat here at WA at the recommendation of a member I follow almost religiously.

(What fantastic place chat is to mine for snippets and nuggets of information)

Anyways I came across your inputs and decided you would be an awesome and interesting follow for a newbie such as myself.

And of course, after perusing your profile, it's become a no-brainer.

You need to go into NameCheap where you bought your domain name and change the DNS to point to the WA servers, you'll find the WA DNS info under Domains in siterubix.

If you do a search here there are many videos showing how to change the DNS in namecheap to the WA.

Hello Leo,

I just started my online cou3rses and I been doing some reading and see you posted something along the lines of 35000 this year in a hard niche....may I ask what your niche is? and did you choose a hard niche as a challenge? I appreciate any feedback that you can other to help me chose my 1st niche. I use to work at Amazon here in Baltimore and was a day one associate that started on the floor and quickly moved up to HR, but during my 2 1/2 years there I saw 2 items on a daily basis and I would like to choose those as my niches for my free web pages, do you think that would be a good idea I know the products sell and move at a high volume but I see Kyle mentions it should be something you are interested in - I am not interested in either!!!! But I have 3 children to take care of and money and hard work interest me the most in life. What would you say about not having an interest in my niches?
Reply
leoemery Premium
My niche is the financial niche. In the long run it usually is best to start with a niche you are interested in, simply because you're going to be talking about it and promoting it for a long time.

So it is easier to do that with a product or service your interested in.

Now with that said you do have a little of an inside track as you were at Amazon - if you think you can get interested and motivated and stay motivated and as you know the products that sell at a high volume - honestly it's something to consider.

Leo first since you are not a newbie with WA, a welcome to me seems a bit off so I say to you it is a pleasure knowing you and hope that my stay will be as long or longer than yours and also lucrative as your endeavors are. That is a mouthful, but I say it with all sincerity. Now, I need help learning the dashboard for enhancing my site on Spelt flour. It is called www.EstasDaughter.com. I want to showcase the many uses, benefits of this ancient flour and present it to any who have a problem with migraines, hbp, anxiety, and like that. I have plenty of content but WP is not a site that is easily navigatible. Maybe you could give me some pointers as to what I should do to improve it and move it along a little faster. Hope so and thanks for any advice, etc.

I would recommend creating categories with drop down menus. This way you can create your content which will be seen on your blog roll and then you can specify that post to a specific category.

I did a training video showing how to create this type of menu - the sample i used was for reviews but it can be used for anything Thank for the kind words and I wish you a long and lucrative online career.

Something you wrote on your profile

"If I can just share one thing, remember this is a marathon not a sprint, things take time but if you stay focused and keep taking one positive step towards your goals each day then you WILL succeed."

Hi Leo:
You sound aweber knowledgeable.
I just subscribed with them and have a lot of problems, nothing seems to work though I do and redo things to no avail.
I have made a squeeze page (with profit canvas) promising a free Ebook for their subscription.
I want subscribers to optin on the squeeze page,, go to the confirm email, then go to another place where they can download the ebook. Im trying to figure what and where that place is and how to integrate the whole thing with aweber.
Thanks.

leoemery Premium
Aweber has training for all this - but it will go like this:

1) Create a list in Aweber
2) Create an optin form (that goes on your site)
3) Create a series of follow up messages

During the setup process you will create a confirmation message that will go to your subscribers automatically - you can also set it up once they have confirmed thier request they get automatically sent to your download page - you will have to create this page.

Take advantage of Awebers tutorials and live chat. Click the Help button in Aweber and you'll find everything you need.

Just thought I'd share, in case you find it useful!

Also, a separate "thank you" to you for sharing motivational/useful posts!!

Hey, Leo...after reading your replies to a few members, I realize I definitely need to follow you so I can learn to make my site a profitable one. Is it a fact that any affiliate we promote should be within our niche? I think this was covered in a lesson to stick to your niche.
For example, my niche is basically cooking and entertaining but I have a personal background which covers much, much more than just eating and drinking. As touched on in my "About Karen", I've owned, driven, raced and been a race instructor for Porsche....could I promote Porsche? (Just re-read that and I don't go into any detail about my Porsche or racing experience). I didn't because this had nothing to do with my niche. Would love your thoughts,
Karen
Reply
leoemery Premium
You can promote anything you like, it's always best to choose something you have as a passion or a hobby.

As for the affiliates, yes you want to promote products and services that relate to your niche. So if you have a site about cars you don't want affiliate links to dog supplies. Stay within the theme of your niche.

Hope this helps

Hi Leo. I'm new to online marketing and it sounds like you have a lot of experience and success.
I have a conventional graphics and printing background (translation - old guy)
I'm in the process of building my website now and am uncertain how it should look. Someone said it shouldn't look like a storefront. Any insights?
Reply
leoemery Premium
Yeah staying away from the storefront look is a good idea.

I know being a graphics guy myself it can be easy to go a little overboard, so remember less is more.

What niche are you thinking of going into? Once you know that head to Google and do a search for sites within your niche this will give you some ideas of what to do and what not to do.

And of course if you ever need a hand just send me a PM.

Thanks for the reply Leo. My first inclination for a niche was something within the graphics and print field but I'm an avid tennis player and Kyle's advise is to pick something we really enjoy so I thought I would build a website dedicated to recreational tennis.

You have to create a menu first. Give your menu a name and then click create menu. I took a screen shot.

Once you do that then the Manage Locations tab will appear - you can create different menus and so on. Here's a screen shot after I created the first menu.

Leo, I have a video question for you and wondering if you could give me a little guidance. I need you to do a video for me and do it for free! lol

All kidding aside, I am learning and can't figure out something I am sure has a simple explanation. I did a short test video using JING from my computer. I saved to my desktop and it only lets me save it as a swf file. First of all what is that and second it will not open up and let me play the file. I tried a 'open with' MS movie maker but it won't play.

I'm trying to learn how to save it to be able to up load it as a media file (wondering if I have to learn FTP to upload it to my website) on my wordpress site. Can't I just go into my media library and select the file on my computer (as long as I saved it in the correct format) and upload it to my library just like I do with an image? And then also wondering, just like I have to compress an image file before uploading it do I have to do something like this for the video?

Sorry, I know this is not just one question, but any direction will help, Thanks.

SWF - means ShockWave File

Try dragging the file into a web browser window.

And no you can't just upload the video file to your website it will not work

It needs to be hosted and then the embed code is what gets loaded onto your site.

So you need to load the video to YouTube or use a paid service like Viemo to host your videos.

You may want to look at buying snagit - - there use to be a pro version of JING. But now the MPEG-4 video functionality has been incorporated into snagit from JING.

Much better program and it's not expensive at all. It's only $50

Beards Premium
Wow, I would have never guessed you could drag it up there to have it play, it worked great. Will that SWF file upload to Youtube?

What are your feelings about Sceencast-o-matic? I will probably eventually buy camtasa but want to learn a bit more before soaking the cash.

And in regards to uploading to Youtube is there a way to do that for Youtube and not have all the ads? Our do you have to pay something like Viemo to get no ads?

Thanks so much for your willingness to help.
Reply
leoemery Premium
No you would have to convert the file to one of these MOV. .MPEG4. MP4.
.AVI. WMV..MPEGPS.. FLV. 3GPP.

Screen-o-matic is a great free program. No youtube comes with ads.

To not have ads you're correct you need to use a service like Vimeo

Yep done in the same way - use a text widget and add your image code and then your text and you're good to go.

The easiest way to add your image to a widget is open a page and then add your photo - switch to Text mode grab the code and place that code into your widget.

I did a training video showing how to do that:

What would cause the widget to overlap another? I tried to incorporate THE SITE OWNER widget but the photo overlaps into the second widget. Any ideas? I took a photo but I can't insert it here.

Thanks

Sounds like a conflict with the widget and the theme - remove the widget and the simply use a text widget from the back office widgets area and insert your image code into the widget. This should solve the problem.

I did a training video on how to use you editor to create code you can use in your widgets.

That's what I did. I used the Text Widget exactly how as you show it in the training - I did this with two other widgets with no issues. Maybe it's the Thumbnail view. I try it with plain 250 x250 and see what happens.

Thumbnails are best at 150x150

Is there a photo format that works best? Like JPEG or PNG etc.

This is the kind of writing I can get behind. Low profile but shows experience. Encouraging while offering a place to go if you need help. Reminds me of a saying I heard a long time ago-
"To get what you want, give others what they want."
Or, something similar to that.

The quote you're thinking of is from Zig Ziggler:

“You will get all you want in life, if you help enough other people get what they want.”

And it's absolutely spot on.

Oh, okay. I've heard it a lot, but never knew who said it. Which is kinda sad since I have read some of his stuff.

Leo, Iv'e asked this question before in the chat but not a straight answer... On my site may I simply choose products and descriptions from my affiliate sites and make it look more retail than blog? I am simply not a review or blogging person but do believe in promoting my chosen niche

Of course you can - but it is content that is going to get traffic to your site - so writing about your products and anything related to them will generate traffic.

And I'm sure you know to do your keyword research for any content you create.

Hope this answers your question

Hi Leo , nice to have an other graphic and web designer here. A quick question you could probably help me with

I need to connect my google with my WA account
I have a googleplus account since about 4 years, which I did with my name: Sabrina Brühwiler - At that time I didn't know about Web Design, so I wasn't thinking about the ü which could be a problem. The thing is, this is my official Google Account - I can just change my Name - it doesn't change my url!
Is there any possibility to embed it to WA that I can use my normal google account or do I need to make another one? Probably someone from the Dev Team which could help me out in writing the code different in the html like that: ü? Or can I change it somewhere in Google?

As part of the TOS with Google plus you can only have 1 Google plus account. However you can create as many pages as you like.

I have my primary Google plus account and I have several pages that represent my other niches. You can create a page and then use that page to connect with the WA.

Hope this helps

Hi Leo
Many thanks for the 'follow' mate I really do appreciate it. I was very impressed with the second paragraph of your profile. So, if I get stuck when I'm traveling along the tech side of my WA learning roadway, guess who I'm going to call :-) Thanks again Leo. Live long and prosper.

Hi Leo! Thanks so much for following me back. I really enjoy your posts. They're always so helpful, and they're also written in an interesting way and (my favorite!) they aren't terribly long.

I've been wondering - Where are your websites? You don't have any listed and I would love to see one or a few. Let me know when you get a minute.

Here is one of my sites this is the one I use to promote the WA www.netwiseprofits.com
