About MichaelEnos
Joined December 2015
Hi everyone! Michael Enos here, all the way from sunny South Africa!
I'm 48 years of age, happily married to the same woman for 27 years now and proud father of two really beautiful daughters aged 22 and 25.

I've been a teacher for 28 years, the last 9 years of which I have been a school principal of a beautiful little school called Assumption Convent in Pretoria, South Africa.

I have been around the block a couple of times with internet marketing, never really making a success of it, but getting badly burned in the process, so I left it for about 8 years. Coming back with a vengeance this time though, totally determined to make a fantabulous success of it!

I have spectacular dreams of moving to the coast, living in a beautiful cottage overlooking the ocean, doing only things I love doing, such as reading, meditating, learning, writing, taking long walks on the beach, being in nature and helping other people in some way.

I truly hope that WA will be the key that opens the door to my dreams for me...
MichaelEnos's Goals 3
Money Goals
Well money always makes me happy, so any amount will do, but if I have to put a figure to it I would say that for starters I will be happy with $700 per month, but earning $8000 consistently every month will make me a VERY happy chappy! I'm very busy in my professional life so I don't have more than one or two hours extra a day during the week but I will definitely spend 6 to 8 hours working on this over weekends.

The thing about online success that I have come to learn is that there is room for ALL of us within the online world. There is no marketplace that is bigger and there is nowhere that represents this kind of opportunity, regardless of your niche, passions and interests (and it only continues to grow!!)

Take action on the training here at WA, immerse yourself within the awesome and helpful community here at WA... and ask for help when you need it. You will be well on your way to achieve your goals Michael!

Thanks Kyle for all the support. It looks like your very hands on and would love to learn from your experiences.

Hello Michael, Welcome! (◠‿◠✿) Nice to meet you, I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right under training (click on my picture). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

Michael, 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 Michael.

MichaelEnos Premium
Hey Kyle! What a coincidence. I was just wondering if I should look you up because I am a bit stuck. I know that you must be inundated with questions from everybody else so I don't want to bother you unnecessarily.
Anyways, seeing that you asked, I would really appreciate it if you could just have a quick look at my site - www.affiliatemarketingdecoded.com and let me know if all is OK. I've done everything I'm supposed to do I think but I just don't have a good feeling about it. I'm a bit unsure about the themes to choose. and whether the themes should be keywords. As far as Iunderstand the themes should be keywords with a decent amount of searches and not too much competition. Well that's exactly what I did - but I don't know, it doesn't seem right...
Maybe I'm just paranoid - I just don't want to do all the work to find out in the end that I have done it all wrong you know.
Anyway I'll really appreciate it if you could get back to me on this.

Kyle Premium
Sure, not a problem at all Michael. I have taken a look at your website and here is my feedback.

(1) Avoid overuse of banners.

http://affiliatemarketingdecoded.com/getting-started

Instead, show people what you are talking about instead of just telling them.

One thing that I always recommend is to "show" people more within your content instead of just "telling" them. By this I mean that you should not just let them know about something, you should walk them through a process. Help them. Use screenshots or images to represent what you are talking about.

This will lead to a much more enjoyable user experience and will also lead to much higher conversions.

(2) Avoid having menus that run onto two lines. Either change your text to shorten your existing menu width, or start using drop down menus.

You can add these custom menus to organize your top menu in any way in which you like, as well as create sub-menus (for themes that will support this). You can also use these custom menus to add within your side widgets on your website (within your sidebar).

Here is a tutorial on how to create custom menus: I use custom menus on all of my websites (over-ride that default menu). It allows much more control and organization....both good things!

Overall, you are definitely heading in the right direction here. I like your initial website themes that you have chosen and your content that you have written thus far is quite good as well. :)

Hello Michael,

You have made a great decision to join the WA community. There is so much to learn here that it can be overwhelming, but taking it one lesson at a time and doing the related tasks powerfully moves your online business into existence.

I really love your profile pic. There must be a story about how this elephant is seemingly holding your hand as you both walk. It is engaging and charming!

You have great support in the folks who have responded to you here. If I can be of any help, do let me know. And use the heck out of the white bar at the top of your screen for "Ask your question here..." It is rare that I don't find an answer to whatever my question has been by using this resource.

Keep smiling!

Hi Peter. Thanks for the support and thanks for the blog post - really good stuff. I've fallen behind with my training a bit because of life that's pulling out all the stops now to prevent me from getting to this...but I won't quit!
Reply
petervcrisp Premium
Hi Michael One of the things that happened to me when I first started here was becoming over whelmed with so much great information and I (like you) felt I was slipping behind.

Here's what's important. Take your time, relax and don't think of it as a race, just slowly but methodically go through the training step by step (it's your program and it will still be here tomorrow) and you will usually find answers to your question in the next step. I used to fall behind by looking at an email and telling myself I will deal with it later, which of course just built up a backlog of things to do that simply didn't get done.

Now I set aside specific times to get things done and I look at emails only one time, decide right then to either complete what needs to be done now or delete it all together.

I have a post that you may like http://onlineaffiliatewealth.com/best-way-to-accomplish-goals

Anyway welcome aboard its going to be an awesome year for you :)

I'm not sure what you mean by latest Google requirements?

Cookie law info? Mobile friendly web-sites to be ranked higher?

The WA crew stays up to date on everything...it's their business, our business : )

You can pop into live chat if you have some pressing questions ..it's another great tool here.

Have a spectacular week. : )

Yes, most definitely it is. We are ahead of the curve and the competition you are going to be working against is doing things that will only hurt their businesses.

You going to learn the proper way to build out a business not for just today, but for years to come and the strategies we teach are things that actually work through application, not theory. :)

MichaelEnos Premium
Hi Kyle. I'm just about ready to pull the trigger on going premium. With the dollar/rand exchange rate it is quite a hefty premium for me to pay in South Africa - almost R700 per month. In fact I cannot really afford it to tell the truth. I'm thinking along the line of getting on my feet with WA as soon as possible so that I can at first and at least pay my premium fees with money earned from WA. I want to know from you if you think that is feasible within a month or two. So what I want to know is, do you think I'll be able to make at least 47$ per month from WA in the next month or two or am I expecting too much?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Upgrade at your own pace.

Everybody earns money at a different rate, so it really depends on the person. I have actually created a discussion on this that will put things into perspective for you here: Have a read of that, I know it will give you a lot of insight into this exact topic. ;)

The first month is typically your foundation building stage. In order to build a website that earns you consistent revenue, you need this foundation. After this, you are going to start seeing traffic and as you build this out, there are many different ways in which you can generate revenue.

Personally it took me into my 3rd month of busting my butt to make my first dollar online, by month 6 though I was making consistent income and by the year mark, I was almost full time.

But guess what would have happened if I quit during those first two "trying" months. I would not be where I am at today. Just wanted to put things into perspective for you.

I am in this journey with you, so is the community here at WA. If you want to jump in, work hard, take action, and persist. Amazing things can and will happen!
