3-5-16 profile update

I have enjoyed 28 years being self-employed in the business of Advertising, Marketing and Consulting with Retailers and Manufacturers in the Home Furnishings Industry. I also served several years on the Board of directors for NHFA (National Home Furnishings Association).

I love exploring all types of businesses and what makes them tick… their strengths and weaknesses. I have done this my entire business life with establishments of all sizes… from medium independents to chain stores and manufacturing facilities around the USA.

As businesses began to discover online marketing, social media and websites into their media budgets, incrementally… I felt It was time to learn as much as I could about this "so called new media". As a media buyer it is important to stay current and be aware of all viable media opportunities... and so the exploring began.

At that time, I had what I thought was a great idea. It was a concept I called the "I-network". My vision was to create a business to business network before "social media" as we know it, existed. I envisioned businesses supported by a community of others like themselves... a business network and community... similar to WA. I tested the waters by giving a presentation at the International Furniture Market in High Point. I never dreamed that Furniture retailers were not yet ready to divert their Hard earned marketing dollars to online "experimental" possibilities. They did not yet see value in the internet and what I perceived as forward thinking opportunities waiting to be tapped. I guess it was a little ahead of it's time. I did not get a chance to further develop this idea as my marketing business continued growing exponentially and kept me extremely busy.

I spent several years of exploring and studying, in hopes of discovering "that magical new business model". I was sure it was out there somewhere. I had found what I believed were the components I thought could be combined to be that future model. I was no doubt on the cusp of something I thought would be huge. Unfortunately, the quest to the answers was all interrupted by my mother's Alzheimers. I dropped everything to help and be with her. If I had it to do over again, I would not have done it differently. I will be forever grateful for that time with her. She is in a better place now... free of pain and her world of darkness.

Since then, I have continued learning everything I can about the digital world as it relates to business and marketing. As I began this new journey of self education, the first online company I encountered was Growthink.com. Dave Lavinsky and his team taught people how to build a business to sell. I learned so much there about the importance of how to correctly develop a plan for funding the business through investors or alternately crowdfunding. Then, I found another amazing company… AppEmpire (appempire.com) I enjoyed the opportunity of learning about the world of apps before they were mainstream as they are now.

During the next phase of my online education journey I explored many business entities… lots of scams everywhere. I was beginning to think perhaps the online world was nothing but scams. Then, I began to find some legitimate businesses. I was still not satisfied. I had not found exactly what I had in mind until I stumbled upon WA. That's when I knew it was the place to learn the nuts and bolts of affiliate and online marketing. It was a good match and the first place I found that I felt was a comfortable environment for me, regarding Online and affiliate marketing. Wealthy Affiliate had all the tools to complete an online presence from start to finish. I have discovered through WA, our learning is never complete as the online world is constantly evolving at a much faster pace than bricks and mortar entities. The learning never stops. I suppose that is what I like the most about being part of Wealthy Affiliate and have remained here for over 4 years.

I have 2 wonderful sons in College and will continue doing what I love… creating, building and always learning something new while having the ability to work within a framework that satisfies my need for flexibility.

Hi, Lynn.

I found you just today, in the comment section of an old post of Carson's.

Noticing you'd joined WA Jan 3, 2012, I dashed right over to see if you're still active.

You are - hooray!

Happy "(nearly) 6-year Anniversary"! Are you as thrilled to be here as you were when you first joined?

Hi Julie,
I started to write a reply to your profile...and then something went bush technically.
So I will start again.
I was particularly interested in your seach for clues over the years. Affiliate marketing sites are full of scamsters and pretenders and it really is difficult to sort the wheat from the chaff.
Of course there are legitimate opportunities to learn this craft but man, it can be expensive and exhausting putting out the trash...lol.

Like yourself i stumbled on the WA site.
How happy am I about this. Happy to share your observation as well, that there a lot of 'long-timers' here on this platfom.
I have only been on board a few months and recently have been broadsided by some family health issues. But things are better than they were and its back to the drawing board.

The core values are here. The persistent intent to train and mentor are obvious in the way Kyle and Carson keep up with their excellent communication to the field.
The tutorials (although I havent done much) are very powerful in the way they add skills in a cumulative way towards the goal of being effective IM professionals. It reminds me of building Leggo with my kids
These guys have done this well and continued to attract business for over ten years, and ten years is a long time in this digital world.

Happily married and six adult children later, my trade background is blue collar (concrete construction and landscaping).
Along the way I was greatly influenced by Jim Rohn, whom I met many years ago. He taught me and my wife the power of leveraging our energies and we went on to become fairly successful networkers (MLM). A few very good companies but still a minefield for the unwarry.

Probably the most valuable lesson we have learned is the difference between efficient and effective.
That is what I want to achieve here with WA. That is , to reach more people, more effectively, more often.
More than ever before in my life I am keen on gaining and sustaining good health and helping others do the same.
My game plan for the foreseeable future is to help others in their quest for better health and the skills I am learning through WA is my chosen vehicle for reaching more people, more effectively.

I will stop raving on now Julie.
Again many thanks for your words of encouragement. I wish you every success on this platform
Stay in touch, and as they say...See you at the Top.

Paul ...from Adelaide, South Australia.

It is truly a wonderful business community for the most part. There is a sizable group of long time members in the background here popping ing and out as available. Most of us have very viable businesses. The long time value I have found with WA is that Kyle and Carson seem to stay with and often ahead of online technology before it becomes mainstream. Jay, who does Friday night live trainings, also is on top of trends, tech developments, and everything one needs to know to keep their sites viable and technologically current. Those 3 people are very involved with the community and the WA business. Kyle and Carson have built an incredible business model here and are constantly evolving with changing search algorithms, website security, Wordpress updates, and everything you will ever need to know to create a viable online business. They provide the knowledge, WA and member support,training and an amazing WA community... they provide all the tools possible. it is up to us to learn how to use them through their many programs. Welcome to WA. Julie

ATTENTION: DO NOT SPEND YOUR MONEY HERE!! First my website was completely gone, then (after having to create a fuss) it was restored with no answers as to why it was uninstalled to begin with and now I can't log in to change or fix anything and nobody is responding with anything actually helpful or supportive. All in the meantime they continue to charge me a monthly membership for a service that I can't use! I trusted my business to the wrong company and I will make it known. This Unplanned downtime is playing a huge impact on my revenue as well as my company's reputation.

Julie, life takes some strange and unexpected turns for reasons we will probably never know. I needed a lift this eve. after a day of starting and pushing hard on the doses of things to combat a rather large melanoma of my right eye that I found I had recently when I went to get new glasses. One in 6 million people have that diagnosis each yr. Of course my wise cracking friends tell me it's because I have always wanted to be unique! I came to your site because of some very wise and caring advice you gave someone that made clear your desire to be helpful with some good guidance. This is part of the beauty of Wealthy Affiliate folks. Anyway, while here I just treated myself to each of your blogs, your own personal journey (abbreviated) and it was a very uplifting evening. So I just want to say thank you for being you and for being transparent and congruent. Your fabulous father will always be with you but of course you will wish you could see and feel him. The nice thing is that when a parent puts so much of their self into those they love they assure their self they will never really die. Only the physical body grows weary and wears out, like every living species on earth. But how beautiful to have had such a family he could treasure and share with for so long. Best wishes to you Julie and thank you for such a nice hour or so.

Harold,
Thank you so much for your kind, heart felt words… very beautiful thoughts. I am glad you found my posts worth an hour of your time. I am so thankful you found the inspiration you needed at that moment.

I know the fear of such a diagnosis… It was the greatest shock I ever had… All I could think of are my 2 sons… and how I was not done teaching them about navigating life, yet.

I am now thankful that I will now see my boys finish college and start their own lives.

For me, every day is a gift. I will continue to work hard making every moment and every day count.

Again, thank You for your wonderful note. Now, you have inspired me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart :) Julie

What is niche
Reply
mama2karsten Premium
A niche market is the subset of the market on which a specific product is focusing. For example… FURNITURE is a very broad category… But there are many sub groups within that category… I am working on one now called Great Outdoor Living Spaces… under that umbrella their are many sub-categories… outdoor Hammocks(sub-category) rope hammock (would be niche of that sub-category)... outdoor living rooms (sub-category) outdoor lounge chairs (would be niche of that sub-category).

The niche is important because in the buying process, the closer someone is to making a purchase, the more specific they are with their search term. They may first look at outdoor furniture… then, they realize there is so much to kook at so they began to zero in on what they actually want which is a hammock… after viewing several hammocks they may want to see only what they are specifically looking for, a rope hammock… so there search term would look something like this… outdoor rope hammock… this way they no longer want to sift through sites filled with hammocks they are not interested in seeing. People are generally looking for things that are very specific within any category… hope this helps…

Hello again, Now I'm back on "WA" again. I got bored after a few months when I was not progressing like I wanted. NOW, I try again after KYLE came with an offer to us who have been in the past. I hope to find a good nich, and move on.
Just like you I play piano, write poetry. I am also an artist and paint and illustrate. Still, it's hard to have a good website. MVH mia
Reply
mama2karsten Premium
Yes, it is difficult to have a good website… But the advantage you have likely lies in you creativity and artistic ability… Your sense of balance with your art and illustrations… You may be able to create something fresh around your talents…:)

As a painter and illustrator you could create an amazing looking website using your art as a header image… or tell your story through multiple slides using a slider… Your unique art is the path to create your own unique style and an amazing, fresh way to share your niche with the world, once you figure out what you want your niche to be.

If I can help in any way, do not hesitate to ask. Oh, and welcome back… Julie

Looking forward to reading more of your posts. I enjoyed reading your post by Seth Godin. I should read more of his work. I think there is a lot of useful information that could help along the way.
God bless,
Reply
mama2karsten Premium
you can go to www.sethgodin.com... I love his writing and commentary... you can sign up for a free news letter there and/or read his blog... If you want to know more about great content creation there is also www.copyblogger.com. I have been a member there several years.... but they do have a free news letter sign up as well and when you sign up you get 13 ebooks on content they are all very good and useful... I am NOT an affiliate for Godin or copyblogger
so there are no Affiliate links if you click on the links I have placed here for you... If I were to give you advice... Great Content is king and is a critical part of web success... check out the recent blogs of ramccracken here at WA... he is an amazing success story and shares what works for him... I have had the priviledge of working with him since June... it has been so much fun watching him grow... hung out with him last night in google hangouts where we can talk live and share screens and ideas... here is the link, as you will see the possibilities... it is not complicated... it is hard work, content, product or service, but what he did, he achieved in 6 months by getting help from a few members including myself... I am not claiming credit... he did the work... he is one to read his story... your potential roadmap is there in those blog posts on his profile... perhaps start right here:
https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/ramccracken/blog/what-wa-has-done-for-me-in-the-first-6-months-and-how-to-make-it-work

I enjoy many members, but there are just not enough hours in the day.... I have been to Denmark... the border is fairly close to where the kids grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins live... Fahrdorf near Schleswig... on the water across from der Dom...on the German side of the border... To me, the whole region is so very beautiful and picturesque. I wish you good luck...:)

you a very welcome... it takes a bit to get used to the system I laid out... but has worked well for many.... The cool thing is when you find that low hanging that has amazingly low QSR combined with above 1000 searches per mo.... it can be gold... ( it is ok to take lower search... using this system I do not go below 300 searches if possible) use those for your article titles and subtitles on your site.... pretty soon you will realize with-in 2-3 weeks (or sooner if you ask google to crawl your site again) that when you know the phrases or words with which people search your niche then you will do well with traffic.... you must next insure you have products your customers want to buy... use the same process with products you think go well and again you will find things you didn't even think of... Jaaxy is the best tool in the world to go thru your list and find the fruit and sometimes other combinations of words you haven't thought of either... I also try to stay above 90 SEO power... Best of luck to you...

Followed over to your page and profile from a comment on another page.

Hi Mama2..., my name is Tom, and thanks for the "FOLLOW me", .... you and I have come to the right place, and like you wish to learn more and become that person who can help and share valuable knowledge. Everyone of us have a unique talent and want to help as many others enjoy working from home in a profitable "Home Based" business. Riches, won't make you happy, but having enough is all one needs, ....... should I be blessed with more than I really need in this life, this would put me in a better position to help others in the future.

Hey!,...I look forward to corresponding with you. WA is the right place to be, and will get all the support from Kyle and Carson and others who are in a position to count themselves worthy for bringing their talents to such a wonderful site. As for me, I have made my presence known to all, looking for that special person to connect with, also to let you know that I have just joined as a premuim member on 11th October 2013 and in great need of support,. Thanks for taking a look at my page which you are more than welcomed to see what I am up to and would love to engage with you also.

Yes! would love to get to understand Internet Marketing a little better and WA's members will be the right source to follow in future. I have no idea of how to go about this yet, but I am going to watch every training video that comes out just to improve driving traffic to my websites of the future, but am willing to put all the time and energy in to make it my life's pension.

You seem to have a lot of experience and I can relate to looking after an ageing parent. I nursed my mother for a year but sadly lost her to cancer, My dad passed away in 2005. I now have grandchildren and try to help out with childcare so I'm hoping my journey on WA will mean I can eventually give up my day job!

I hope you are able to to give up the day job... It does take a little time, Build up your content, tweaking here and there... good products to sell that compliment your content.... and I am a huge believer in great photos on your website to support the story, article and products you are trying share. Anyway, best of luck and if you get stuck or lost, let me know. I will do my best to help... Good Luck!
