About MoritzS
Joined April 2015
Hi, everybody.
I am from Germany but live and work in Taiwan at the moment.
In my free time, I love reading, archery and enjoying the nature.
I do like to play video games, too. :)

By the time I am writing this (February 2017) I have been here for almost 2 years.
Wow, I learned so much at Wealthy Affiliate.
Before, I knew nothing about internet marketing!
Now, I have two websites and they both see regular visitors and earn me some nice extra money.

Everything I am learning here is the real deal!

I am happy that I don't need to take any "shortcuts" (which don't work) anymore and can build my online business every day.

It does take time and effort, but it is worth it.

I know quite a bit about Youtube, Web Development and, thanks to WA, about Internet Marketing as well.

If you have any questions, or just want to be my friend, don't be shy.
Just follow me or send me a message.

To our success!

Hello from México Moritz:
I've been at WA less than one month and am more excited everyday. Last nite I completed Course 1 and now I'm beginning level 2. Also late last night I published a blog about organic agriculture at:
http://organicagriculturecommodities.siterubix.com/
Best wishes, I'll stay in touch.

Hi Moritz, it's good to meet you and thanks again for the helpful comment re domains and DNS redirections etc.

Wow, sounds like you're having a ball, here in WA and in Taiwan, although not sure if you're still there.

Wishing you every success and looking forward to following you on your journey here.

All the best

Hi MoritzS,
I just read your blog post of two years ago about publishing on kindle. You had just done it I think. As this is one of my dreams as well, I wanted to check in and ask if you still have your book up, is it still selling and generating passive income, are you putting time into it to actively sell it, use it as a give away for something else, and general success and recommendations.

Thanks so much for any advice,
Jennfer

Hey.
Sorry for the late reply.
I'm away at the moment.

I don't sell my book anymore.
I give it away for free when someone subscribes to my list.
After a few months the sales went down to zero.

OMG Moritz I am from Taiwan as well and I am heading back in April 26 to go visit my uncle and do dental work. Are you staying there permanently? Perhaps once I break my freedom I will be able to relocate back to Taiwan.

Please let me know more about you!

Hey Annie,
I am staying here (kind of) permanently. Have been here for 5 years. There was a 9 months break when I was working in England, though.
My wife and I might move to Germany one day, but we don't know exactly when.

Taiwan is great!
Where are you now?

I was just looking at your video Insert Amazon Affiliate Links and Pictures the Easy Way. First I would like to say that this is a good video. I am familiar with the linking process to amazon, but there was one thing that I heard you say in the video and that was that you will get paid only if it is sold on Amazon. I have been linking to products and not really checking if the item was sold on Amazon or not. So this is something good to know. Thanks have a wonderful day.
Reply
MoritzS Premium
Hey.
STOP right there. ;)

Please read the description of the training.
That sentence I said in the video is not correct. When I made the video I was pretty new and didn't have many sales on Amazon.
I updated the description to correct that mistake.

Now, after almost 2 years, I know that you get commissions of everything that you link to on Amazon.
It doesn't matter whether it is sold by Amazon or someone else.

Cheers
Moritz

Good to meet you Moritz and thanks for the add...I have added you as well...What part of Germany do you hail from? I have lived there for the most part over the last 42 years (in many places but settled near Frankfurt Am Main)?

Taiwan must be an interesting place to live and work, I spent quite a bit of time on Mainland China (Shanghai, Hangzhou, etc.) while doing some consultant work and business some years ago (I loved the time)...

It sounds like you feel as I do, this place puts you in the right direction when it comes to online marketing, I joined 20 months ago now and will be here a long time I think...

Cheers!

Hey. Nice to meet you, too.
The nearest bigger city is Würzburg. But Frankfurt is only about 1.5 hours away.

Taiwan is definitely great, too. Have been here for a few years now.
I love to explore new places and possibilities.

All the best to you.

Cool!

Our warehouses for e-commerce (for EU and North America) are in Landshut closer to Munich in Bayern, and near where my partner lives...

Personally. I lived in Bayern for 8 years long ago...in Augsburg, Lagerlechfeld, Klosterlechfeld, near Kempton, and in Guenzberg...

In total, I moved 14 times in 25 years...There were 9 of these moves within Germany (also I was in Frankfurt Am Main, Pirmasens, and Heidelberg)...

You may have guessed I am a military retiree from the US Army (25 years total)...Out for many years, I left at the old age of 42 and have not looked back...

I love it there, it became my second home away from home, and also built a house plus bought an apartment near and in Frankfurt Am Main, near where my wife is from...

Enjoy and best of luck!

I looked at your archery site and I can't figure out why you are not making more money with it. The website has good content, affiliate links to amazon and is a very clean, good looking site. I'm very new to internet marketing so this depresses me a bit, but I hope you continue with the site and find a way to make more money with it. Let us know how it works out.
Reply
MoritzS Premium
Hi,
that can have many different reasons.
For one the niche I chose is really broad.That makes it a bit harder to make sales.
Second, this was my first site and maybe the keywords and articles weren't that good in the beginning.
Generally you can be successful with any niche. But it takes time.
One year is actually not that much in the life of a website.
Don't feel depressed because of this. You need to set a goal and never let it slip away. :)

Hi MoritZS,

That is nice to know. Time goes by so fast. I have a question you said that you have two websites.

Is it possible to put two websites in one social media account?

For example:

My first website is all bout a tech or technology website, and I created a google plus account and I have also
connected or added my tech website in my google plus account.

Next:

I have created a second website. Some kind of a food website


My question is:

Do I need to create a new google plus account for the second website? The food website? or can I add the second websites in my google plus account?

The two websites are completely different niche, tech and food? Is it acceptable, adding two different niche websites in one social media account like google plus?

I would really appreciate your help.


With all the respect,
Ver

MoritzS Premium
Hi.
If your Google+ account is under your name, you could use it for both websites.

In the long run it would be better to make an account for each website (on every social media channel).

So in my opinion in the beginning it is ok to use one account for two websites.

Hi Moritz, I just watched a training video you did about posting Amazon products the right way. I looked at your site, and it is really great looking, even your own book! Pretty good! I was looking for a site of yours that has the end result after posting the Amazon Affiliate links in it but I only see the one site here and I couldn't find any Amazon looking stuff in there. Did I miss it or do you have another website out there with Amazon Affiliate links on it?
It's very nice to meet you!

Hi,
nice to meet you, too.
I am not allowed to answer your question with a direct link. It's against the WA rules.
But when you go to my archery website and there to "my recommendations", you will find many posts that have Amazon affiliate links.
Let me know whether you could find them.

I love the way you kept updating your profile with your progress - I think that is encouraging to a lot of new people. I plan to follow suit. I notice your last update ended on August 16th, and you didn't say when you made you first sale or started making money. Just curious, when did this happen for you?
Reply

Hey,
yes you are right.
I didn't write an update for quite some time.
I think I will rewrite my whole profile one day.

Don't actually now exactly when I had my first sale. I think it must have been in September or October. But so far my income isn't that high, so it's not really worth mentioning. ;)
But I am getting more and more traffic and clicks on my affiliate links, so I know that more and more regular sales are sure on the way.

thanks for the link you posted buddy, its what i was looking for, i need some other info if you might have it, is there investing to be made in this program or do you have to get results only by growth over time like the post you gave me?
Reply
MoritzS Premium
Hey. No problem.
What you will need is a domain which costs around $10 a year.
To use the full power of WA, you would need a premium account which costs a monthly fee.

Other than that you can do everything without spending money, but you can speed up some things when investing some money.
But all this will be explained in the training.
Don't rush ahead and follow the training step by step.

It's mostly time, patience and constancy you need.
Almost everybody gets to points where the frustration gets big and that will be the time where you need to push through and keep going.

Especially when it seems that "everybody else" is making money after a month, but you don't.
I know what I am talking about there. ;)

Hi Moritz, thank you for the follow and for leaving a comment on my site the other day :) So your niche is archery. Wow! I visited your site and it looks great. I especially liked the background pic that you have. I have a question. I see you have an author bio on the front page like I do. How did you create the space between the photo and text? As you can see mine doesn't have any space. I would appreciate any help. Thank you!

MoritzS Premium
Hey,
thanks for following back.
I liked your site, too, when I gave it a comment. :)
The space between photo and text is there by default in my theme.
To get the space in your theme, you would most likely have to go into the files of your theme and add some "padding" or "margin" around your image.

I wouldn't recommend to try that, if you don't have experience with HTML and CSS.
I wouldn't want to do that myself, either.

An easier way would be to add a white frame around your picture itself.
I put an image below for an example.
When you put this image there it will look like there's a space between the text.
Of course you could also just put a white stripe on the right side, instead of putting a frame around the whole image.

Hope that helps. :)

Yuko Premium
Ah, you are genius Moritz! Thank you so much!!
I will definitely try a pic with a white frame! I know nothing about HTML and will be too scared of attempting one.

Thanks again for your quick response and a big help!

Hello MoritzS, I really like your take and action on your website. It is truly commendable and I think you should stick with one site just for a couple of months and then you could introduce a new site, a new niche and continue growing. If you ever need any comments on your sites, just give me a shout and I will do so. Have a blessed day and focus on building your WebPire.....bye...

Hey,
thanks for your kind words.
I agree with you, that at one point I should start a second site.
I already know what it will be about, but at the moment I still want to publish 3 times a week on my archery site, to get a bit more visitors.

Hello MoritzS, this is the Ann side of Dave and Ann. I was excited to see that you are in Taiwan. We lived in Taiwan for a summer when our girls were small. We taught English to the children in the public school. Our daughters were homeschooled from birth to college so they were in the classrooms with us, helping us teach English. It was a great experience for all of us. We are doing this so we can travel also. I have great hopes for our websites through WA.

Hey Ann (and Dave).
Yes, have been here in Taiwan for about 4 years now, but am planning to go back to Germany soon.

While it is great and my wife is from here, I do miss Germany.
I left Germany 5 years ago and have only been back twice for visits.

I hope everything is going well for you, too!
All the best.

Oha, you ranked up pretty fast!
Not sure if you still need it, but how about those illustrations for your book? I might be able to help you out there, depending on what exactly you have in mind. Also, where do you get all your photos for your website? Depending on what you need (maybe sometimes something without an actual bow in the pic), i could help you with that as well - if you even need help.

Thanks again for your help and following me,

Don't worry, as you continue building out your website it will continue to take shape. A website doesn't have to be perfect to be very successful, quite the contrary.

Perfect. Choosing a niche can be scary, but also exciting. Let me know how it goes.
Reply
MoritzS Premium
Alright.
My niche ideas so far:

1. Archery:
I am about to publish an beginners ebook about archery on Kindle Amazon. The book is written and only needs to be edited, pictures and the format needs to be done, too. I think I can publish it within a month, if I hurry with it. Could this already be my niche? Or is "archery" too broad and I should go deeper, like bowhunting, japanese archery,...?
AFAIK I can't put affliate links in an ebook that is published on Kindle, but I guess I can put links in it to my own website, on which I would promote my ebook and other products around archery.

2. Video games:
I used to play a lot when I was younger, and I am still interested in games, even though I hardly have time to play anymore.
This could be easily more specified by choosing one genre, e.g. "open world games".

3. Collector cards (e.g. for baseball, basketball):
This idea comes from another course I made before about earning money on amazon. The instructor earned a lot by selling those kind of cards.

What do you think about these ideas? I personally tend to archery or video games.
But I am interested in the affiliate bootcamp, too.
Mhhhh...decisions, decisions. ;)
Reply
nathaniell Premium
I would definitely go with Archery. You can use the training here to drive traffic to your website where you sell your ebook, plus you can use affiliate programs to promote archery gear and maybe even advanced books from other writers.

Video games is too broad, and would need to be narrowed down like vintage consoles, easter eggs hunting, creating mods, starting a let's play channel, etc.

Collector cards would work, but it's something I'm unfamiliar with so not sure how I would go about it. This would be my second choice.

Hope this helps!
Reply
MoritzS Premium
Sweet!
I will go with archery first. When this is up and running I will see what comes next.
Step by step.
Good idea about the advanced books from other writers! I already checked for affiliate programs for archery gear and found MANY!

Thanks.
