About Lmtraill
Joined April 2014
My name is Leigh.
I am retired & living in a country town in Victoria, Australia. My husband & I moved up here to Castlemaine in 2010, looking for a tree change but also to assist my daughter and her partner with their 3 children who are now all at school. So I help with after-school care, holiday care & whatever else is needed but I also spend quite a lot of time on-line with the aim of increasing our income and improving our quality of life.

I discovered the internet in 2007 but was just getting started when I had a small stroke and lost my vocabulary! After spending some time in Rehab, I realized fast surfing on the internet (doing all those puzzles) was going to be a way of getting my brain working again so I spend a bit of time each morning surfing as fast as I can to start the day right!

I need to read/listen to training several times and take copious notes to implant the info into my memory so I'm a bit slow getting it all together here. I've been scammed a few times but have never had spare cash to spend so haven't lost much. But I have learnt a lot, doing it all by picking peoples' brains - there are some extremely helpful marketers out there to whom I am very grateful! I'm really a pretty shy person but I love how the internet connects like-minded people.

We lost everything we had including our business and superannuation funds and have been working ever since to get back on our feet financially. We're both still working at creating enough income to become independent again. Life can be tough but if you let it get you down you never get back up again!

I believe we have joined a truly wonderful community here in WA and if I can assist you in any way, you have only to ask!

Money Goals
I would be happy earning AU$500/month as my first goal but I'd be ecstastic if I could increase that to AU$500/week. I can spend on average about 5 hours per day to achieve my goals, but I find myself getting on-line whenever I have the opportunity!

Excellent Leigh, I know you will achieve your goals. As you start seeing more progress and results, you will be able to spend more time on your business.

When I started out online, I had limited time because I was in school full time and I was able to achieve "full time" status within the online business world in a year. I totally understand that we all have "time" issues in life, but I absolutely know you can do the same and accomplish the same sort of success!

Take action on the training here, immerse yourself within the community, and ask for help when you need it. This is your sure path to your own personal goals and successes Leigh! :)

Hi Leigh.

Firstly Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Secondly thank you for the follow really appreciated.
After reading your profile I feel honoured to be part of your network.

Another Aussie wow that's great too I am from north of you in NSW.

Looking forward when you have your site up and running I know there is much learning to be gained.

Prays being sent to you for the health issue I had a Bad Heart Attack in 2005 nearly cost me my time on this planet.

Guess someone forget to get the paperwork done properly or signature from the boss wasn't required yet.

There is a lot to learn here in WA you will have a great time just with the communication alone.

There is a wonderful bunch of wonderful people you will get to me and if you are as fortunate as me the same ones will be part of your network as well.

Take care be well Oi OI OI

Thank you for following me, Leigh. Let me tell you - quite a few of us (without having had a small stroke) need to listen to the training several times over. This community is really helpful and will patiently answer questions, so don't ever worry about asking.

I am glad you have recovered so well from your small stroke, so the next step is to recover financially.

I am following you back and wish you all the best.

I'm not sure how this message system works - whether this message will go to you Kyle or to Frank but no matter!
I've been looking at your web pages Kyle (weightloss) and I feel I have not chosen a sensible niche - I don't know much about First aid kits - it was something I felt would be good to know more about! So I couldn't really make a page that gave people any sort of confidence about my knowledge or experience with them.
Hence I think it would be better to put my niche site on hold for now and get started on Affiliate Bootcamp - I have some experience with affiliate sites and I enjoy doing that so I'll get back to niche sites when I come up with a more sensible niche idea.

Hello Frank, Sorry, I left you the following message a couple of hours ago but you apparently you didn't get/see it. I'm up to the point where I get some keywords for my site and I thought I'd just run things past you first. And thanks for checking up on me - I was so busy working my way through the lessons I forgot to check back here for messages.
I decided to make my niche "first aid kits" although now I think it would probably be better to target something like "How to choose a first aid kit" or something similar to dig it down a bit - I think that is the term. How does that sound to you?
I also wondered how you go about choosing affiliate sites that give your prospects a world-wide menu of appropriate products. When I google first aid kits of course I get mostly Australian sites & I would imagine you would get NZ sites.
I plan on upgrading Friday our time a bit before my 7 days finishes unless for some reason I need to do it earlier so I can keep moving along here.
Cheers,
Leigh

Hi Kyle,
I've been making good progress Y got so focused on moving ahead I forgot to check on my messages -my apologies!
I"m up to getting key words. I decided to make my niche "first aid kits" although now I think it would probably be better to target something like "how to choose a first aid kit"or "tips for choosing a good first aid kit" or something similar to dig it down a bit - I think that is the term. How does that sound to you?
I plan to upgrade just before my 7 days runs out - I am on a pension and I have planned it this way to take advantage of the discount on the first month as well as the free first week so my funds go as far as possible. It will be rather tight keeping this up after several months but if I do this properly I should start to earn a bit here to help things along.
Thanks for your support!

First aid kits would be just fine and within that website, you can create pages/posts targeting the ideas that you suggested. These would be really helpful and excellent posts.

Love the idea!

Hi Leigh,

First aid kits sounds great.

As you start your keyword research you will naturally undercover the search phrases that are going to bring you your target audience like "How to choose your first aid kit".

You're definitely heading in the right direction.

One of the easiest affiliate sites to sign up for is Amazon. So you might consider joining up with them.

If you go to Amazon and search for the phrase "first aid kits" you will find a lot of products available that you will be able to promote on your website.

Amazon is a world wide provider so will cater for countries around the global.

Hope that helps.

Best,
Frank

Welcome Leigh, to Wealthy Affiliates and thanks for accepting my invitation to check it out.

There's a lot to learn here, the best place to start would be the level 1 certification course. So start with the first lesson by clicking on the link below.

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1

Be sure to create a profile and add a picture, that way you'll get lots of help from all the peeps in WA. You'll find out how to do this in the getting started link above.

Sadly some people don't even get this far, for some unknown reason.

If you can do this, (i.e.) follow simple instructions, (implementing as you go), soon you will be on your way to making your first sale.

Please feel free to ask questions in the community through live chat or the Getting started classroom above. Or hit me up anytime you want in WA.

Anyway, I know you'd be eager to have a browse around so I'll let you get your feet wet.

Best of luck, and don't forget you can always ask me for help!


Best,
Frank

Thanks Frank, I have now started here after making contact with you through your website several days ago. I had a heavy few days looking after my grandchildren (school holidays here) and waited to join until I had more time to myself. I am on a pension and planning to upgrade but I want to get as far as I can before I do that, so I spin out my funds as far as possible. Thanks for your support.
