About Loupopp
Joined March 2019
I'm 70 Years old and my wife of 47 years is 77, and has stage 4 lung cancer is taking Tagrisso which seems to be helping. She has run a Home Daycare for 52 years now and continues with 2 helpers. I was born and raised on a farm, worked in the fields and maintained the equipment along with my father and grandfather and 2 uncles until I turned 13 at which time my father had an accident.

I was to young to handle the farm so we sold everything and I went to work in the Steel mills in northwest Indiana. From there I went to Purdue Univ. AD in Industrial Maintenance and Supervision. Through the years I have worked as a heavy equipment operator and master mechanic, drive a semi truck for a short time, was a Director of Maintenance, a Mobil Equipment Manager and Maintenance Superintendent, and somewhere in all of this managed to get involved in computers. I started my own little sales and service company, built it up to a 14 employee service and sold it in 2002.

Then I got involved in Rental Properties, unfortunately that's where everything went straight down hill. I have a bad habit of trusting people and taking them for their word, after 10 years I lost over 750,000 and still owe 250,000 in state taxes. Sorry for the rant, but life is very frustrating at this point and I'm looking for a way to crawl out of this pit we're in...

Great goals!

But it will still make it better to have specific numbers in mind in terms of money and hours to put in per week or day. That will make it easier to track your performance and adapt as you go along.

Please, let me know if you need any help!

I want to thank everyone for your help and encouragement but I just cannot seem to get anywhere with getting the websites setup and running. I’ve spent countless dollars and hours trying to “Get IT” and just Don’t, some of the problem is I have so much going on with my wife’s cancer issues and my own I get easily confused and at my age,, that’s ease. I don’t have any money to pay anyone for help and I have studied until everything is a big blur.. And Wordpress,, well that’s a nightmare of its own, none of the examples and training seem to be the same edition causing more confusion, I even purchased 3 books on how to work it with again nothing but frustration and confusion.. I’ve always been a 1-2-3 or A-B-C person and I just again, can’t get the simple 1-2-3 or A-B-C plan figured out.. IF, someone has a simple 1-2-3 or A-B-C plan that I could understand and make work I would appreciate a copy or link to it. I created the website to help people of age like myself start their own websites and programs in order make some extra cash but,,, ZIP…

Welcome to WA Premium!

Glad that you landed here. It doesn’t matter how. It does matter that you check this place out thoroughly to see the power you have available here to help you create an online money makin* presence.

If you need to make money fast, this is not the place to do it. However, if you want to create your online money makin* machine that will provide you with a recurring passive income over time, then you are at the right place.

You must be prepared to invest your time and effort learning the skills and putting them to action. Just follow the training every day. When you get stuck, ask for help. That’s what I’ve been doing and it works!

Within a few days I was able to build a basic website using keywords, get it indexed by Google. Shortly after I added several posts and pages and got them ranked on the first page on the major search engines. Is achieving results like this something that excites you?

Be patient. Take the time to build a strong foundation rather than rushing through. In the weeks and months ahead you’ll be glad you did.

I wish you much success with your training. Imagine and feel the success awaiting you, and success will be yours!

Cheers!

Edwin

Welcome to WA my friend!

I have had a similar experience with people, which made me slowly ditch my career as an Engineer.

It is so nice to be with the same person for 47 years now. That's what family truly mean! And that's what compensates for what we face by dealing with other people.

What is interesting to me is that you worked in the maintenance field. This can be a great starting point to pick the niche you want to work on!

You will learn how to research and pick your niche in the first few lessons in the training through the Green button on the left sidebar.

I did a small research a while ago and found that there's almost no competition in the world of engineering, maintenance and relevant tools and devices.

And of course there will always be such great opportunities, especially that this field is very big and it is always evolving.

I discovered that after I had already started my current website in the internet marketing niche, but I will start another website in one of the engineering sub-niches soon.

Start with the training from the left sidebar and don't hesitate to ask me any question whenever you need help.

Looking forward to working with you!

Hi Amjad,

Thank you for the help, you wrote about a possible maintenance niche and I of course got ahead of myself and purchased a website “mechanic-tools.com” and developed the website using the WA instructions.

Now I find myself looking for affiliate tool sites and there’s thousands. The competition is so vast it’s almost overwhelming. I have spent hours looking for affiliates that I could market but find that most have little or no profit or are too expensive to consider selling.

My dilemma is do I stay with this or continue on and hope something comes of the site. And if I may,, can I ask what your thoughts were about a maintenance niche.

Thanks again,
Lou

Hello Lou,

Great progress and questions!

To save the time and effort on yourself when it comes to physical products, Amazon has an affiliate program and they sell almost everything.

The brands themselves sell their products on amazon.

So, you can join one affiliate program and reduce the hassle instead of applying to every company's affiliate program.

When it comes to prices and the fact that some tools might look pricy and people might not buy them, look at the first attached photo for the Dewalt drill driver kit

It costs on amazon $159 +shipping and there are 1,421 reviews! Remember the most people don't leave reviews.. Which means that there are much more sales for this model alone.. Then how about other Dewalt models, and other manufacturers' models!

And this is only for the drill driver kits on Amazon.

And for the second attachment for the mitotuyo caliber of the price of $119, there are 460+ reviews

Third attachment, plasma cutter for the price of $400+, 470+ reviews

And the same applies to many categories on Amazon



Now for the competition, never be scared if you follow the training.

Don't look at the number of websites that talk about maintenance tools.

Instead, look at the competition for each keyword you target. (QSR less than 100, or less than 50 if you can)

There's literally an unlimited number of keywords, and while some might look competitive, others will have low competition.

Your keywords might fall into three categories, as follows :

1- First category: product x review, best deal on product x

While "product x" represents the brand/model

e.g. Dewalt dct003 review
Best deal on Dewalt dct003

And this category of keywords alone will keep you busy forever even if you just want to write about drill drver kits, without touching any other types of devices

2- second category: best tool to do action x, or list of the best y devices

e.g.
Best plazma cutters
Best battery powered drill
...etc

3 - third category: how to article

You can write articles about fixing a popular malfunctioning or improving something in a step-by-step guide and mention the tools needed and embedding your affiliate links to the products on amazon.

It is recommended to have all the three categories above when creating content in order to make your website more helpful to people, and it will make the internal linking more efficient between different pages on your website.

So, my opinion about the maintenance niche is that it is a great one as it is an evergreen one, and there will always be new tools and devices to recommend to people.

Most important is that you like the niche you work on, as this will be a long term business.

In order to make it more fun and faster while researching and creating content, you can make your focus on a sub-niche like, home maintenance and improvement, industrial maintenance, diy, welding for maintenance , ... etc.
At the same time, this will help you overcome the competition as Google likes to see a website with a clear direction and set of audience.


You can always add more sub-niches as your website grows.

I hope my answer helps!

Please, let me know if there's something I missed or you have more questions or if you need help in a specific thing.

Hi and congratulations on going premium with WA. It's a wise decision.

Your best bet from here is to follow all of the 5 course, 50 lesson Online Entrepreneur Certification training.

But the really important step is to apply what you're learning WHILE YOU'RE LEARNING IT.

I can't emphasize this enough.

Not only will it make the training stick, but in no time at all you'll have your first WA website up and running.

Google ranking and monetization will follow inevitably.

If you're stuck any time, just post a question.

One of us at WA will answer it and you'll be off again.

It's a journey and you've just taken your first and best step.

I wish you all the best.

Phil

This will be my 3rd attempt to doing online marketing, the first 2 failed miserably and cost me well over $5000, I can’t afford very much at this point, 70 years old living on social security, wife has stage 4 lung cancer so I’m pretty desperate to get something going. I would like to thank you in advance for any help and guidance, Lou

Just wanted to shoot you a quick message and see how things were going thus far Louis? I am here to help if you ever need a hand with anything, just holler!

PS. Also, quick reminder. Today is the last day to get your first month discount/bonuses. No rush, no worries. Just a simple reminder here. :)

Hello Louis

It has been three days for you here and it seems that you have'nt completed your profile setup, yet!

No worries at all, please go to where you have stopped earlier, and finish the four steps in completing your profile setup, and then, all you have to do is to commit yourself into dedicating a specific time slot every day in order to learn and apply what you learn immediately.

Don't get discouraged if you don't see immediate results, that's normal. Like any business, you need to invest effort, time and money in advance and keep taking a massive persistent action, and the payback will come to you. Trust in the process.

If you haven't started yet, go the Green "Get Started Here" Button on the left sidebar and it will take you to the step-by-step amazing training into creating your first money making website.

Enjoy learning and executing and please, let me know in case if you need any help!

All the best!

Hello Louis, I'm glad that you made it to here!

As you have joined this amazing platform, I assume that you are serious about making money online. You have taken the right step by joining this incredible platform. There are tons of training tutorials that will help you to create your online success story step-by-step and will provide you with the necessary tools.

Now all you have to do is to start by verifying you account through the steps you can see at the top of the page, and then you can start the first level of the training through the Green "Get Started Here" button on the left bar of this page.

The first level of this training contains 10 lessons and the total of 29 tasks that you will be performing gradually as you move through the training. This first level will result in you building your first website and publishing your first piece of content on the web, and from there, you can decide if you would like to join the Premium Membership.

Of course you can also update to the premium membership starting now. For myself, I went premium since the first or second day. This is a great place to learn from and build your business with. I'm sure that you will like it :)

HOW TO CLAIM YOUR BONUS?

As you might have read in my review, that if you join through the link on my website, you will know how to claim the bonus.

The bonus I'm offering has two parts: the first one is that in case you join the premium membership during the first membership, you will get a 59% discount on the first month's fees ($19 instead of $49). This is valid only during the first seven days from joining the starter membership.

The second part of bonus will be received in a direct message after you join for the premium membership. But this one will be received anyway whether you go premium in the first seven days or later. It contains two important pieces of material that will help keeping you on track whenever you feel stuck or uninspired:

1 - A webinar that was held by Kyle, the co-founder of Wealthy Affiliate on what does it take to become a successful Affiliate Marketer in 2018. It has a lot of hints and insights that I rediscover every time I watch it.

2 - An article from one of the members here at Wealthy Affiliate on the #1 Secret of why most people fail, and how to avoid falling in the same trap.

I hope you go immediately through the first phase of the free training as I described above, and see the benefits that you can get in order to make your decision on joining the Premium Membership.

Please, let me know if you need any help in any aspect!

Best regards,
Amjad
