About LesleyHamlin
Joined January 2016
British born but have been a Florida resident for over thirty years. As a realtor in a competitive market area, I joined Wealthy Affiliate to guide me through the challenging and ever changing world of online marketing. I'm also applying what I'm learning with a website I'm building here which I hope to make profitable soon.

I have a grown son and a daughter, and I'm Granny Lesley to a happy and active five year old boy. He has just completed Pre-K, and will start Kindergarten in August. We have lots of fun together and I absolutely adore him.

Staying physically fit is very important to me, but when I slow down, I enjoy reading or making jewelry.

I love all animals and have had a house full of cats, dogs, birds, reptiles and fish, but not necessarily all at the same time. Now I just keep fish.

I've changed my profile to reflect the real "me". I didn't know what to expect when I joined here or even if I would stay.

I'm so glad I stayed.

Money Goals
My initial goal would be to reach $3,000 month to supplement my income and pay off debt.
My second goal would be to reach $6,000 and beyond per month so I can use the extra to start paying down my mortgage and living a great lifestyle.
I'm willing to put in as much TIME learning, implementing and creating content as needed to achieve these goals.

Hi, I just got the upgrade to a premium member. My goal is to know the ins and out for I can help someone, as everyone has helped me. I am looking forward to making money, also. I believe my goal would start out as 2000.00 a month then increase from that point. I'm happy to be apart of WA/

Thank you Lesley for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. If you need any help remember to post your question in the comments section or on live chat, and someone will be able to help you.

I created a short but informative training tutorial for all New Members that tell you what you can do here at WA and most importantly give you a link to the RULES of WA and what you cannot do here. If you have the time or wish to, please check out the rest of my training (Bottom Right Blue Button) on my profile page. I explain ways to help you build a better website, ways to make some extra $$$ with your WA training, and best practices here at WA. I also post a humorous blog on first Sunday of every month. Enjoy!

Hey Lesley, I just wanted to check in and see if had a chance to start exploring Wealthy Affiliate. If you haven't started the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course - that's the best place to start. It'll take you through the whole process of how to start your website and how the making money stuff works.

Click the green"Get Started Here" button on the left.

PS. One thing people get stuck on a lot is picking a topic or "niche" for their website. If you are having trouble thinking of something to make your website about let me know and we can figure it out together.

Hi Nathaniell, I've finished the whole OEC course and have started reading the Affiliate Bootcamp class. My original idea for a website may already be somewhat crushed as my keyword search found it too competitive. But I hope as I get more used to digging deeper for words that I'll find other gems. I went through a ton of searches on my first free 30. NaturalHealthLifestyles is the name of the site to start with. I have the three pages set up and completed my about me page . After I join I will get a much better domain name, but right now I'm stumped.
So far, "how to find ... Happiness ....peace ....purpose in life" are non-competitive phrases but with pretty low traffic (15 and above). "Natural healing solutions" (although natural healing is super competitive) has no competition, (although natural healing is super competitive) while "natural laxatives home remedies" has got tons of searches with low competition. Not sure where all this lead to. Words like toxic, and protecting the environment are super competitive and I can't touch, except "how to make natural cleaning products" is acceptable. "Natural home remedies" has tons of searches and is in the yellow zone.
Your input is much appreciated at this stage. Thanks, Lesley
p.s. Are all these posts visible to everyone here or is this between you and me?

You should never worry about competition, because if there is competition, it means that people are making money there. Also, you should understand that you are starting out as a beginner right now, but with time and focus, you will become an expert in this niche. It may look like you can't compete with the "professionals" right now, but you will be able to...that's what the WA training will teach you.

I think "natural healing" is a great niche, and you can have some core pages of your site be

natural cleaning products
natural home remedies
...something else

You will have lots of posts on your site eventually, each with their own keyword. So "natural laxatives home remedies" could be one post, and "natural cold remedies" could be another post, and "natural cleaning solution for oven grease" yet another post! Each post has power to rank and drive traffic to your website, then earn you income :)

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Lesley!

Nathaniell here - you probably remember me from my site One More Cup of Coffee. I'm glad to see you've signed up and are ready to get started building your online business.

Right now, there are just two things you need to know.

1) Those who ask questions interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their goals. The support here at WA is the best in the internet marketing industry...please take advantage of it.

2) You can get started learning how to make money by doing your Level 1 Certification Course. Click on the green "Get Started Here" button or just click this link And don't forget that you can also access me for 1-on-1 support by leaving a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/nathaniell or by responding directly to this message.

There are a ton of other features you have access to right now, but they are explained in your main training linked above. Your #1 job right now is to get started on the first lesson.

PS. Did you know that you'll already have your website built by lesson 4? Crazy, I know!

I also wanted to let you know that if you join the premium membership in this 7 day window you'll get a TON of awesome stuff from me.

First off, you'll get a 59% discount ($19.95 for 1 month) on your membership. Twenty bucks for you first month of WA is an absolute steal.

This includes some simple design tips, and answers to the most frequently asked questions by new WA members. This resource will help you bypass these common errors and get your affiliate website ready for making money.

Hi Nathaniell, I have always read your review articles first when I see you on Google and I knew you were with WA. Something inside finally made me click on the link to join as I have been struggling within myself as to which "road" I want to take with my future. I've always wanted to pursue affiliate marketing but all the pieces just didn't fit together, but I think the time has now come.
I know I will definitely do the $19.95 for one month and hope to get a good grasp on what to do within that time and join after that.
Choosing a niche and keyword research may be the hardest thing I forsee so far, then understanding how to build a good website will be next.
I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions as I move forward.
Lesley

There will be lots of chances to choose keywords (each page has a different one), so I would not stress about that too much. Picking a niche can be tough though! If you need any help, just let me know. You can run some potential ideas by me and I'll help you pick a good one.
