About MMoncur
Joined December 2017
I am a "foodie" on a budget. While I would love to travel the world, wine and dine in high-end restaurants and experiment in the kitchen with exotic and expensive ingredient, my budget does not allow me to do so all the time. I simple LOVE food: to snack on food at work, to watch food channels and competitions on television, to go out and immerse myself in the experience of dining out (even if the cuisine is as simple as a new salad from Wendy's,) to experiment with different recipes at home, the list goes on. To sum everything up, I am not a food snob, I welcome food of every culture, price, size, texture, location, you name it! I love and respect food and want to share my food experiences with others.

$550 is a great starting point. 10-12 hours week is realistic too when working around a work schedule.

You'll find a lot of help here within the community so please do reach out and ask.

Wishing you much success!

Thank you Kisha. I am definitely finding the blogs to be a valuable tool. I just used the information on a blog about choosing domain names to register my first domain name :)

If you have any advice on "how to..." blogs please feel free to share with me!

You're Welcome! Yes, the blog is a very valuable tool. Congratulations on registering your first domain name. That was a great choice because you always want to own your own domain name. It is not only good to own your own but it is great to have so that you can get indexed into google.

I am not sure if I understand correctly. Are you looking for other blogs that have "how to" tutorials.

or are you looking for articles to write on your blog "how to " like example "how to build a website for free?" how to get started with affiliate marketing?" "how to use jaxxy?"

Hi Kisha, I am writing a "how to" blog and wanted to know if you have any tips on how to gain the interest of my future readers. Or which theme on WA would work well with blogs. I am completely new to this and want to know what has helped you succeed.

Thank you!

Oh okay sorry, I just did not understand at first.

Yes, I can understand I was completely new as well. I just been here one month. One month today actually!

But what has helped me, I will tell you exactly what I have been doing and hopefully this helps.

I follow the training, I work on it everyday and I do not rush through the training. If I have to watch a video 2 or 3 times over. I do!
Every Friday we have webinars, if you have time sign up for it.

They may be way over your head when you watch them because a lot of the webinars are still over my head but, I still watch it and take the little information that I can comprehend and use the method that was taught in the webinar.

The webinars can be replayed so no worries if you can not watch them at the exact time they play.

Okay to captivate your audience, you just write the way you normally would talk. That is what I do. I just write the way I normally would talk.

And when I am writing I write as if I was talking to a friend. You'll keep the audience entertained by just being yourself. If you have an opinion about an "How to" that your doing then let the audience know.
Example: if I do not like a service I tell the audience why I do not like it and what I think could have been done better.

I also try and use Jaaxy which is a free tool to use since you are premium. Use that to find low QSR keywords, usually under 100 this will help your site get indexed.

example: how to train a pug puppy 112 20 26 Great 93

See this keyword came from jaaxy this would help you get indexed faster. because the QSR is low. It is 26, searches are 112 and the potential people traffic you will get is 20.

So, I stick with low QSR's.

I also did not try and perfect each and every post right away. I try to write a post every other day. So, I keep pushing out post as often as I can. Make sure you use nice images in the articles that go with the topic you are speaking about.

After I wrote 12 post then I came back and tweaked my site. Like made it look better, checked all my articles for any errors and made sure the article still made sense.

As far as themes. I am still not sure what themes are best. I changed themes three times. I loved twenty seventeen theme but, it had some coding error because my capital 'i's looked like L's and I never got indexed with that theme.

So then I renado theme and I liked that them too but never got indexed either so, I finally chose some theme called eggnews wala.. I got indexed so, the theme is tricky. Not all are equal, it all boils down to user experience. So, you'll have to try and see what makes your site flow when it comes to themes.

Inside of WA:
I also answer questions when people need help. This helps me learn faster. If I don't know the answer I go and find the answer and then answer them. That way I learn and someone else is learning at the same time.

I also ask as many questions as I possible can no matter how crazy it sounds. I still ask because someone is always wanting to know the same answer.

I use my WA blog for practice. Your WA blog can get ranked into Google so make sure you use it. IF some one was to click on your WA blog and sign up, you would get credit. You can write about anything. I usually just write about my journey of the day.

I also look at other blogs in my niche and study them. I see what they are doing and how they are doing it. Follow successful bloggers and the upcoming bloggers in your niche. And I just absorb all that information and put it in my own form.

Sorry the post was so long winded but, I tried to make sure you knew what I do. If you ever have any questions I am here and love to help when I can...

Thank you Maxiann for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. If you need any help remember to post your question in the comments section or on live chat, and someone will be able to help you.

I created an informative training tutorial for all New Members that clearly explain the differences between the Certification Course and Affiliate Bootcamp.

I highly recommend that you do not start your WA training doing the Bootcamp. The Certification Course is the BEST option and I explain why in the following tutorial. If you have a few minutes free, give it a read and ask me any questions you may have within the comments section, and I will be happy to give you an answer.

Hi Carson,

Thank you for your offer. I would appreciate any thoughts or suggestions you have on my niche idea:

I was thinking my niche can show people how they can be a "foodie" while on a budget. How they can enjoy find food or even a fine dining experience while saving money. It would include cookbook recommendations and freebies to draw persons in, exchanging recipes and of course recommending cooking tools.

Any comments? Also I plan to upgrade to premium soon. Any suggestions on website themes that would suit my niche idea?

Thanks in advance!

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Good day Kyle,

I was thinking my niche can show people how they can be a "foodie" while on a budget. Everyone loves food, they want the experience of exquisite cuisines but may not be able to afford to do so. What I want people to get from my blog is where they can go to have a fine dining experience, how to budget for it, create their own experiences right at home and the right tools to accomplish this. I LOVE food and take every moment to appreciate what I eat, no matter the how much or how little it may cost.

What do you think of the idea? Any advice, comments and critiques are more than welcome :)

Thank you for all of your help so far, I am truly enjoying my WA experience and have already recommended to my family.

Thanks again Kyle. What do you think of the niche ideas? I would love to get your thoughts!

Your niche ideas are definitely viable directions for your niche. You need to choose one when starting out, what are you most passionate about?

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)
