About LucindaF
Joined June 2014
I come from England but have lived in Sydney, Australia, for the past twenty years. I have been a Personal Assistant most of my life and have never had trouble finding work. However, the economy of Australia and, perhaps my age although I prefer to ignore that fact!, have made it very difficult to get a job recently. I am interested in on-line marketing as it is a new challenge and one that I hope will lead to a successful new career. I stumbled across Wealthy Affiliate by chance while I was busy being scammed by so-called "Internet Gurus"!

To give you an insight into my life, I am now 65 although I swear I was only 25 the other day - time passes very quickly! I love travelling and have travelled a lot, living in Paris, Geneva and Brussels before coming over here. I hope that once I am successful with my internet business, I will again be able to travel. I love to read as I find education very rewarding. I love to listen to music - mainly classical or folk but of course, being a child of the sixties, I love the music of that period.

Anyway, look forward to connecting with you all in our journey to success and WA seems to be the way to do it.

Regards

Great meeting you Lucinda, you don't even look like 65, definitely much younger if you've not say your age over ere at WA....Anyway, great meeting you at WA Lucinda. I'm also in Australia at Brisbane, just an hour flight to Sydney only lol. Yes, I've studied in London many years ago and know how England's like having stayed there for 4 years.

We're on the same boat too Lucinda having been scammed many times in our pursuit for success in IM until when we saw what WA was like, it's truly a place to learn IM and I'm halfway through the course now. I love travelling too ;)

Look forward to connect with you and hope we can work on IM together and motivate each other. Please do keep in touch and take good care of yourself Lucinda.

Thank you for following me in ‘Wealthy Affiliate’ Lucinda
This is one of the very best places I have personally been in years and am sure it is for you too!
Having risen to 256 in the rankings in my fist month, I can assure you that this was achieved solely by following Kyle’s teachings exactly to the word. I would advise anyone who is new to ‘WA’ to just follow what Kyle teaches in his training’s and not try to do it their own way. “Re-inventing the wheel“, I believe it’s called 
I wish you every success in all you are striving for in WA, good luck,
Roger
Reply
LucindaF Premium
I have been doing the same thing as you Roger. I have just been following the lessons and doing everything Kyle says. It is taking me a while as I am new to the online marketing business but will hopefully get there slowly but surely.
Reply
rog37 Premium
Stick with it Lucinda. It is not a race, but if you pace yourself, you will get to the end.

I ran a marathon once and was advised "Just put one foot in front of the other and repeat it". I was not after breaking any records, I just wanted to finish and raise money for charity. (Picture of me finishing under my profile)

I think that in the very short time I have been with WA, I have learned that I can only do what I have in the time available. I will continue when I have more time.

Sincere best wishes for total success,

Roger

No Lucinda, we do not have letter deliveries, no traffic lights and just one bank the population is ? maybe 2000+ No on knows for sure, not even the local council. There would not be many people who visit here that do not like it. But don't come in the summer unless you want your brains fried!!:)
Reply
LucindaF Premium
It sounds like the true Australia!! I have unfortunately had to live in the cities like Sydney because of work. As no one out there wants me any more!!!, I am thinking of moving somewhere more friendly and more rural. I would love to visit. I have a friend whose uncle used to come up there mining for opals a long ago.
Reply
Peterd1 Premium
Yes, I fully understand what you are saying Lucinda. No want wants you anymore? You need to prove them wrong. As long as you believe in yourself and have some opportunities. I guess you know the story about Colonel the Kentucky Fried Chicken man? After a long spell of rejections he finally found success at the ripe young age of 66:)

Lightning Ridge is all about opals (Australian Black opal-the best in the world. Even though this is a small town yet there are supposed to be 50 different nationalities here, it's a great community and everyone gets on very well together.
Reply
LucindaF Premium
That is why I am now doing WA. I found it very hard to get another job after I was made redundant a few years ago. So., after months of frustration, decided it was my age and concentrated on something else where I don't have to attend interviews etc - hence Wealthy Affiliate!

But this lack of a 9-5 job has enabled me to become more mobile and has given me the opportunity to move - which is good! Also I am now away from that awful rat race of commuting every day.

Lightning Ridge sounds really great - a friendly community would make a change, after Sydney. My friend's cousin has a house up there and comes up quite often. It is somewhere I have always wanted to visit. I will see what I can do.

Well, happy birthday for 15th. I think the weather is going to be quite good - 19C. I see you live in Newcastle - not far from me. I live near Sutherland.

Although I joined on June 15 last year, I had about a five month break as I was doing a course at TAFE but this is much more enjoyable!!

Therefore, I only really think of myself as starting properly in January this year. Otherwise I would get disheartened!!

Have a great birthday.

Thanks for following back Lucinda, I live in Sydney too (Penrith). I have only been here for a few weeks so can't really help with linking your profile. I am taking quite some time getting through the lessons too as it is taking me a long time to write my articles but I am getting there. Good luck.

I seem to be having a bit of trouble with linking my profile to my About Me page. Kyle said to just copy the link rather than the affiliate link but I cannot see any link but the affiliate link on my profile page. HELP PLEASE. Maybe I have become thick as I am finding things a bit harder.!!!

Thank you, glad you did.
Don't worry about how fast you go-I have been here a while and not done with all of level 4 - almost Go at your own pace :)
Reply
LucindaF Premium
Thanks. I suppose it is better to go slowly and thoroughly than rushing through and understanding nothing. I am still a bit stuck on sharing with social media sites. Any help would be greatly appreciated. What is G+? As I mentioned before - don't current "friends" on Facebook to see.
Reply
Jenna7 Premium
G+ as far as I understand is a Social Media site where you can network with others. G+ is like Google's version of Facebook. (just read that somewhere) They are both a tad confusing to me, but the training here makes it easier to understand them.

What do you mean current friends on Facebook? Do you mean why do you have to create a new page for just your business and not friends/family?
Reply
LucindaF Premium
Yes I don't really want them to see as they will be cynical. I would rather approach fresh blood!! I will have a look. Hopefully all will be explained in the training. It is just one of the tasks is to share content with social media. Maybe I should wait until I know what I am doing.
Reply
Jenna7 Premium
I totally understand now-yeah same here, some people might not be so supportive. The cool thing is you open a new FB account with your website name and it will be separate from your personal FB page.

In fact, when I was doing mine, members taught me that it's better to have a separate professional FB account anyway. :)
Reply
LucindaF Premium
I know but when I tried to share my review with my new FB account, nothing happened. You are being really great - thank you. I get embarrassed asking questions all the time but, as you said, you have to. I am looking forward to the day when I can help someone out!!! Where are you out of interest.
Reply
Jenna7 Premium
Sorry to take an hour to reply to each message. I am from California but grew up in WA state.

What happens when you try to share it-it didn't do anything? I'll help you with that. I just post my reviews on FB-you are trying to post something on there right...I am a little spaced out lol :P

It's totally fine to ask questions. When I first came here I didn't want to ask very many and wanted to figure it out myself. Then I asked myself how much I wanted to succeed, and I am determined to make a living doing this, so I started asking lots of questions. That's how you learn! If you ever need to private message too, you can do that anytime.

I have never had had a negative experience when asking questions here, the patience experienced members have is outstanding. So never feel stuck or embarrassed-everyone was new to this business once. :)

LucindaF Premium
I am in Sydney but originally from England as you probably read in my profile. Yes, I shared my review with my new n wealthy affiliate facebook site and when I went into it, there was nothing there and they just kept asking for me to find friends! I wish I had taken more interest in social media networks now!! Never mind - time to learn. I will have another go tomorrow. Maybe I should just use my normal FB account and see what happens re sarcastic comments from "friends"!!
Reply
LucindaF Premium
By the way, I too have had so much help and support from other members, you included!. I will continue to ask questions. You have to learn and it gets very demoralising trying to fathom it out alone. I am sure my turn will come when I can help others.

Lucinda, 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 Lucinda.

I do have a question now funnily enough. I am on Lesson 4 and have chosen three themes from your suggestions. They are Motivational Techniques; Avoiding Scams and Targeting Audiences. However,, I am having problems finding 10 topics for each theme. I went into Ubersuggest.org as you said and typed in Avoiding Scams. It did not do what you said it was going to do ie give me a list by alphabet of keywords and suggestions. It was just a page of ads and the following comments: Sorry, wrong captcha :-( Sorry, no suggestions for this query. Help please. Am I doing something wrong.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Use Jaaxy.com for this then if you cannot get it to work, ubersuggest is working and if you didn't enter in the right captcha then it won't work.

Jaaxy.com has an alphabet soup feature that is superior to that of ubersuggest.
Reply
LucindaF Premium
Thanks Kyle. I have found 30 topics for my themes, using Google and Jaaxy and my imagination!! I might subscribe to Jaaxy after my 30 free searches as it seems to be a good keyword medium. However, I would like as many resources as possible to find content. Would you mind telling me what a captcha is please and how do I enter the right one? I just typed in my theme names and it did come up "wrong captcha". Thank you so much for your help. I am asking lots of questions but I believe that is the best way to learn!! Right.
Reply
Kyle Premium
A captcha is a series of letters/numbers that you have to enter before performing an action online...this is in place to prove you are a real human and not a robot going around the internet doing stuff.

Here is the wikipedia definition of a captcha in case I did a bad job of explaining it:

Absolutely, looking great thus far. My only recommendation...

Use clear and concise headlines within your content. You can do this by using h3 tags that break up your content. It will make your content much more readable.

Here is an example of what I mean:

http://waystoavoidscamsonline.com/how-to-sell-your-art-online-paint-yourself-successful

As you scroll down, you will see headlines that break apart my content and foreshadow to my audience what I am going to talk about.

Ex. Art, to be honest, is an EASY sell within the online world?

This is highly effective and will lead to much more readership of your content.
Reply
LucindaF Premium
Thanks for that Kyle. I will take your advice and including headlines. What are h3tags please?? Is this a special Wordpress feature? I am still trying to fathom out Wordpress even though it is supposed to be very easy!! I am reasonably computer literate too Do you have a training course on Wordpress further down in Course 1 of Bootcamp?

Regards

Lucinda

It is a Heading 3 tag which you will see within your Wordpress editor (where you can adjust the size of the content).

I really do think you would gain a lot of value out of this live class if you check it out:

It covers the creation and management of your Wordpress content.
