About MsMerry
Joined March 2016
Affiliate marketing allows me the freedom to choose. I love that part!! WA offers me the knowledge I need to get there. The community offers me the help when I am stuck. Does it get any better?

Before Today:
I was ready to quit and accept defeat. I had tried a few sites for learning but they were so expensive, complicated, and I still was still chasing my tail running in circles. :) Seemed like every turn was more money to learn. I like how WA is more simplified than most, up-front and honest and no up-sells!! Wealthy Affiliate is easy to maneuver and I can see myself not getting lost in the process, but growing instead. I can see myself here for the long haul.

Up-Date Dec/2016

After being here for a bit now the surprises have been wonderful and eye opening. I have learned SO MUCH and I found some awesome new friends. Help is only a shout out away and I have discovered that what CAN look like an MLM Market, is not always what it seems. Breaking things down and being more specific about your niche is very high on the list as well.

I have learned NOT to jump too far ahead of myself! OOPS! When I got the official boot from Amazon for no sales I had to rethink things.. I found that stepping back and concentrating on only two sites was best for now. I now have a micro niche site where I have my micro sites and one more that is more specific to Wealthy Affiliate and affiliate marketing. At least I hope they can be classified as micro. Each one is so different from the other.


To date my journey here is amazing. I am still training :) that never ends but also because I had to do the revamp on my websites/Blogs. I have completed three goals here at WA. Top 200 and going over 1000 in my network, and completing my first training at WA. Now I am reviewing because it is just too easy to forget.

I am so looking forward to 2017 and getting some referrals in place for WA and for my other affiliate business choices. I made a decision just a few months ago to join a few affiliate sites that are not part of ShareSale, Rakuten or the others. I am looking forward to growing with these just as I am with my WA.

I can't wait to see an email coming in to tell me my “Wealthy Affiliate Invitation” has been accepted. I think I will be over the moon excited.
There is nothing better than to know your efforts are paying off and you are doing something right, earning and helping others do the same. I like the helping others part the best. Something very special happens when you do that.



Wishing everyone here all the best in success and completing your goals in 2017!

Thanks for the follow and have followed you back. Wow what an inspiration. Joined back in 2015 got off to good start and then life happened. A couple months ago - my ranking was somewhere south of 80K. Realizing that the project I was on would run out in June 2018 - decided to take another look at WA. Started with taking training, started getting involved contributing wherever I could help - even applying what I do to make some WA training videos. Low and behold In just a few months I'm at middle of the 500's. Your story shows that it is possible - thanks. Wishing you nothing but success.

Hi MsMerry, I am on lesson level 2. Can you explain me when I should get affiliate program links to my website, I think it's not easy to be approved right? And also I'm not sure what to write about content cos I don't have product. My niche is about weight loss.
Reply
MsMerry Premium
Hi, Suzy. You might want to be sure you have your site up and running and like you said some content first. You have so many products to choose from. Recipe books, +++ I would start writing about your own experience if you have one or a friend's. Share some things that have worked or that you know work. You can still get set up like at ClickBank for digital ( e-books) Amazon is your next I would think unless you have a specific product you can suggest.
Getting approved depending on where is the key. You sign up at ShareASale and some of the others before actually applying for specific affiliate links. ShareASale and ClickBank are known as Partner programs that host many programs you can join. There are others and you will see those as you move along in the training. Don't get ahead of that tho'. Hope this helps a bit.

Msmerry I just signed up for Google Adsense. In plain English where do I paste the code they gave me to copy? They told me to do it in my HTML of my URL of my site between the head and <head> tags? Do I understand what theyre talking about? Haven't a clue.

WWW.lisasmusicyesterdaytodayforever.com

Where on here do I put it and what page?

Lisa, I am sorry I was away. If you didn't get it there is a training for this from a member. But if not you want to go to appearance and then to edit. From there on the far left look for header section. You want to click on this and then in the content area look for <head> You will paste the code in there. Go to the bottom and click save and that is all you need.

Hi Merry, I have only been on WA for less than a month and have been training, reading, and learning. I am determined to make this work. decided on a niche and began researching it for my web site. And there it is, the amazing, unbeatable competition!! ugh

I knew they were there, but these guys are great, I am feeling very small as I know little to nothing about creating a web page. Although learning more every day. I wish I could partner up with someone. just don't know if I can do this alone. Should I change my niche again, or just push through and do this thing regardless of the competition and give it my best shot?
Reply
MsMerry Premium
Hi Maureen. Well I think you have a few options. One, you haven't been here too long so don't short change what you have learned and will still learn about building a website. If you are passionate about your niche, and you know you can give good content then I say go for it. Sometimes all we need is someone to encourage us to keep going. That is what I hope I can offer you.
If it makes you feel any better, I have been here a year, and I am still learning!! It just never stops and that is fun too....somedays anyway.
The other thing to do is be an affiliate of WA and do the BootCamp training. Then if you feel ready to tackle your chosen niche again you can.
I hope this helps a tiny bit. I can sure relate to where you are hand how you are feeling. Just shout anytime you need anything, okay?

I was following along just fine until the last paragraph of this lesson (Course 2, Lesson 1). Kyle mentioned that google analytics needed to be updated now that we own our own domain. Can you please tell me where I would find that and how I would do that?

Need to market distant healing
Healing most diseases which is associated with pain remotely.
Only the full address of the patient is needed for this remote healing.

Reaching out to heal maximum people suffering from pain takes priority.

Full amount paid shall be refunded, if healing not happened or customer not happy without asking any question.

Kidney problems, heart problems, blood vessel blocks,cancer, arthritis, spondylosis etc may cure over a period of one months. Gall bladder stones, kidney stones, headaches, shoulder pain, neck pain, hand pain, leg pain and back bone pain etc.may cure within 2 days.

Sitting anywhere in the world, god willing, healing can happen to anybody, anywhere in the world ( remote healing) just by having their address. Therefore area or place is not a problem.
You need not believe in this healing for the healing to work.

Thank U very much for your time, encouraging attitude and words.

Pls note that diabetes and blood pressure never responded to my energy healing. As both are without pain I am not able to access and convert those dumb energies.
Take it from me please, energy medicine is the real science and Energy medicine is the future.

Request u all to get as many people possible suffering from diseases associated with pain and they shall be healed distantly by me free of cost up to the end of September 2017. By the grace of god, hopefully all diseases associated with pain shall be cured by distant healing and let this become proof of energy healing.

Hi, Jay's last course from his 4 courses on creating a web site will be held this Friday. Last week he discussed creating a logo to help brand your web site and had also mentioned football snack helmet the best template for all his web site needs. Is there a way to kind of know which of the 2,400 WA web site templates offered are good for inserting a logo at the top of the web site or does it not matter which template, as they all provide that web space for pasting in a logo to help brand a web site?
Reply
MsMerry Premium
No, it really doesn't matter Mary. You will be saving your logo to your computer and then uploading from there. I still have not found a cool logo maker that is unique without paying for it. I have seen some awesome logos but they had them done.

Have you tried Fiver dot com - I've seen some impressive talent at that web site under the category of logos that are cost-effective (of course, the better talent charge more, but there are many on that site "just starting out" etc. I have photoshop but my husband has more experience with it. I created a few images with photoshop myself but they dont look too professional.

I looked at both of your websites and here is some of my thoughts on how they looked. In the first case, here is what I think about your website design on the site at https://myaffiliatehomebiz.com. What's good: 1) the "Welcome To" section is a good idea to include and 2) your picture is also well-placed and a good idea to include. What I think in not good: 1) overall, there is far too much "white space" to my eyes and your text as well seems "scattered" and not condensed enough, 2) I don't agree with how large whatever font(s) you chose looks, 3) your title underneath the graphic doesn't need the word Simply in "Keeping It Simply Simple" - delete the word simply, it isn't needed and is redundant.

Now, on to some feedback on your second site, https://girlbossmrketingco.com. Overall, I think it is a much better effort on your part. The different elements are much more condensed and "tighter." What's good: 1) the two images at the top look very professional and appropriate, 2) allowing for comments is always a good idea, so nice job on including some comments and the comment box. What I didn't think helps: 1) the color scheme seemed overdone to me - too much pink and violet used, 2) you used a direct quotation without properly citing the author's name, and 3) the choice to include affiliate marketing and Karat bars "dilutes" and confuses the purpose or theme of the site. What are you specifically trying to promote with your site? One or the other, Merry?

In conclusion, keep in mind that I did my best to give you my personal opinions or likes/dislikes about your sites. You can agree with me or not - and that is fine. I will send you a message as soon as I can pointing you to sites that have stood the test of time, are highly profitable, very popular, and highly ranked. Until then, take good care of yourself.

Very much appreciated Craig. I included both KaratBars and WA as well as Stella & Dot as they are all affiliate marketing sites and I understand a bit better what I did that could be done better. Oh Crap on the quote! oops :)
my affiliate home biz site is something I just changed to make it simpler and it seems that my scattered text could have something to do with that. Not sure. The Simply Simple is just me having fun with words but I can see your point.
Okay, now the white space.........shoot, I need to look at that again as I am not fond of too much white space.
Thanks Craig.

As newbie in WA what words of wisdom can you tell me about WA community.

Is WA really rewarding and have you been able to travel and have financial freedom? Do you have any other source of income or WA is sufficient enough to make a decent living?

MsMerry Premium
Hi, Ray. Big questions and just so you know up front I am really honest. In my almost year here at WA I have learned so much. My passion lies in helping others to find what can really work with no hidden agenda. Therefore I have to tell you, that, no I have not made anything yet. My source of income is very limited as I am not able to work other than at home due to a rare illness. I have found a couple of things in the last few months that I am feeling very confident with. I can tell you that a lot of people have made a good living here. I am not technical so I guess I take longer :) Also made a few huge errors along the way that set me back I know this is probably not what you had hoped to hear, but it is the truth. You must be very proud of your business's offline. I wish you all the success and if you need honest help or input, you know where to find me.

Hello Ms. Merry, thanks for the follow. I think we have spoken before, just wanted to check in and see how you are doing. Do you have working, earning site yet? How is it going? I would love to hear any specifics you can give on how to make a site earn. I am just at the point of putting in my first affiliate links. I have one page and one post with Amazon links in them right now and am on Course 3, lesson 5. I love it hear and I love what you say about all the positives of being part of WA. It is the only place I have found with the benefits that will actually work towards building my own business and believe me I have check out a lot of different, supposed, programs that claim to let you earn off the internet. They were all a joke and had continuous up-sells on them. I lost a bit of money before I got here, and am so glad I finally found WA that I smile everyday I come to work here.

Take care and let me know whats up, okay?
God bless and have a wonderful, prosperous WA day.

Heh, Tina. So nice to hear from you again. I have been there with you on the upsells and programs that just didn't 'feel' right about sharing and some that broke the bank. Hate those upsells and I think that is why I don't have a funnel system or landing page.
And now for some truth. I do love it here and all that we can learn. The first place I ever felt so good about the community. There really is nothing like this.
But to your question about earning. The answer is No. Came very close a few times and a lot of it is my own errors. I had 4 sites of which 2 I am not using right now. I just couldn't get the traffic and so got the boot from Amazon. That is really when my focused changed. Both my sites now are focused only on affiliate programs that are free to join.
From there I am building out. It is quite a process and if I had not gotten ahead of myself...LoL I might be further ahead. The lessons our mistakes teach us. I love helping people and I want everyone to succeed and prosper. If you want to see any that I am doing you can PM me.
all the best to you too Tina.

Hi again Merry. Lots of tips and advice in my blogs.
One Tip
It’s a good idea (only if you want to) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.
Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing but.
But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.
Enjoy your day.

Interesting ... that we seem to have trodden similar yet different paths. I too was all into the idea of too much, too fast, and thus too little results. I've been closer to putting my fist through my laptop than quitting the industry though. I'm guessing having not quit and my laptop still working was a good choice to date?!
I simply love the idea of the freedom that Internet Marketing, EMail Marketing, Affiliate Marketing, and more offers.
WA has provided me the AHAh moment. So Alas, here I am. Your 'bio' strengthened my subconscious decision. Thank You.
Thank You also for being a friend herein and perhaps one day we'll meet up on this road still less traveled. I now have the 'right' tools to move forward with solidifying the foundation and building up, outward, and inside a new fortress.
I can't wait for it all to come together and be of help to what I hope is countless others. We all need Health 'n Wealth afterall.
Be Well, Be Safe, & Be YOU! I remain ...

I love how you are positive and confident.Two wonderful traits among other on the path to success. One lesson I am placing a lot of emphasis on in my very early beginnings is: Establishing a rock solid foundation. Establishing this crucial element for success is attained in the learning curve.

Don't get sidetracked and forget about the training. I am in agreement with jesus on this!

Best wishes for continued success as you continue to grow and move forward!

LOL!! here is a link. Just have a look Shawn and see if it is for you. You can do free or If you want to use it the best way, you would do a $20 one time payout and that lets you send out 20 messages at a time. I think it could be really handy come January! Something to think about anyway. I just started using and have 3 people interested but still at a free level which is okay too.
Questions just shoot. I think a few people, from what I was told, in WA use this.

Hello Merry,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ 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 list of 1001 niche ideas, 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. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link on the right (click on my picture to get there). 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 2016-2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Merry, sorry about the delay in responding. I am getting further and further behind in my following people. Oh well better late than never!

I have a friend who is a master de-clutterer. She used to do courses at the now defunct Adult Education courses here in Tasmania. So she wrote a book. When she tried to publish it she was told it was too short. What nonsense. After all. why clutter up a book about decluttering!

Work hard, have some fun and do keep in touch.
Reply
MsMerry Premium
Thank you so much, Helen. I love the art of de-cluttering or in my words being organized. I have been this way forever but just in the last few years with a career change decided to get some new training on the second thing I love. Yes, nonsense is right. I have seen a few that are so cluttered with organizing everything from the toothbrush up! LoL. Happy someone else thinks like me.

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my websites. My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live a month ago and the one on sleep apnea has been up for almost four months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.

Merry - Just from my experimentation (almost five years worth) THIS is the only website worth considering. I have "invested" (translate wasted) a significant sum of money trying to find the right place to reside relating to web business.

Wealthy Affiliate has been the answer to my quest!

All the best,

Hi, Merry and thanks for the follow. I will follow you as well. Yup, WA is an amazing place. I never got involved with other kinds of "so-called" internet training sites but I have heard many stories about those who have and found that most were just a big rip-off.

I'm glad you found this. The training and the community are well worth the yearly fee and there are no upsells unless you count Jaaxy, which we don't absolutely need because we have the "Keyword Tool"

Anyway, I wish you the best in this journey and look forward to hearing about your successes and failures.

Theirs no scams, no up sells, no in your face selling, just exactly what you read when you signed up. That's what WA is, learning and applying what you've learnt.Do each lesson as they come and follow through! WA also has a college type of learning platform, with a great community to back you up when you get stuck. And if you can't get your answers there, Kyle and Carson will get you through it one on one. So put your mind at ease and just focus on learning and applying. And I thank you for the follow and am following you back.I wish you the best of luck, but persistence is more important than luck!.....Bob

Hello, Merry. Thanks for visiting my website and leaving a comment. I have been visiting your thisgalsgotclutter.com and loved your website design. It's feng shui. I can see why you are good in your business. You are highly creative and have a good sense of colours and forms. It was heavenly for my eyes to watch and I wanted to come back for more. I also visited affiliateprofits.co and left you a comment and some questions.

Kindly regards.

Good afternoon to you Merry, my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. MLM never worked for me either. Too many products to buy and only the people at the top make the money. WA isn't like that. You get honest training that you can use to benefit any platform in online marketing you care to enter.
I suggest you first start with the Get Started Here [top green box]. This will teach how to use the keyword tool, selevt a niche to enter and build your website. If you have any difficulties (and you will), ask the community for help. They are the secret sauce of WA.
I wish you much progress and success in your journey.

Hi Ms Merry I have never been an in your face sales person either. But it's easy to talk about WA this way. I really enjoy what they are teaching me. I just need follow the instructions and do it
Hopefully my sit's will get some recognition soon. We'love do this together.

MsMerry Premium
Hi TDe. Yes, it is isn't it? People get the picture a little clearer I think. Yes, I agree on the sit's but I figure it will be a few months and still so much more to learn. My problem is doing too much at once and then I have to come back and do it again. :):) Just going into course 2 on bootcamp side. I will follow you and then we will be more connected here. Have an awesome learning day.

Hello MsMerry. Welcome to the WA Community. I joined about a week ago. WA gives a REALISTIC view of earning an income online. Most people who want to earn a substantial income have to match that desire with a tremendous amount of HARD WORK. Those who devote at least 10 Hours a week working on their site, creating content and learning will possibly be able to start generating a modest income in 3 to 6 months. The WA community will encourage us to remain positive.
All the Best - Wayne

Merry, 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 Merry.

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! :)
Reply
MsMerry Premium
Hi John. Looks like you are reading my 'mail'. :) Yes, that niche thing is a stickler for sure, especially when you have more than one idea running through your head. I did think of a new one in the last hour or so, something I had thought about a few times and that is organization for home/office/downsizing etc. The hard part for me is to get it down to effective wording. Creative Organization, Creative Room organizing or organizers. Also, one quick question if it is okay, as a premium member can we use Jaaxy free or be an affiliate of that? It is awesome!
Reply
johncruz Premium
Jaaxy is on its own, so you would have to pay for that, but it is very well worth the $19/month. I like your new niche idea too, and I know that will work, so you just need to decide on which one you want to go with. Have you decided already?
Reply
MsMerry Premium
yes, I would like to do the organization niche as well as being a WA affiliate as i love to help others with marketing information and especially for the older crowd as they are more intimidated. Should I go with my niche idea first and then do the WA second?
Reply
johncruz Premium
They are really both great niches and also something I would do myself, so you are definitely on the right path. However, I do think you should build out JUST one until you start making money and then maybe venture into the other. I love the two niches you have chosen.
Reply
MsMerry Premium
thank you John. That is huge and so appreciated. I am going to get upgraded right away and then make the decision as to which to go with first.
Reply
johncruz Premium
I am really impressed with how you think Merry, so just know that you are a lot different than most. You're a pleasure to work with and I know you are going to do really good with any of your niches.

What you can do, is start both sites, but put a lot of focus into one and then build out the other one slowly so that it will be ready to make money regardless. Please, just make sure you put a lot of time into your main site if you do decide to start both.

What's up Merry and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

Just thought I'd welcome you and help you get started on the right track, as I know how it is to land somewhere without any direction.

You will learn a lot within the next few days and you will meet a bunch of new people, who will help you along the way so that's something you can expect.

As a new member here, you want to put up a pic (preferably of yourself) and say a little something about you so that it can be easier for others to help you.

To start the training, just head over to the Online Entrepreneur Certification getting started course (Level 1). This is a task based course that will get you taking action on daily tasks that will lead to you building web assets right away.

Here is the link that you will see within your main menu labeled "Get Started Here". We all started somewhere so don't feel alone. Take things one day at a time and everything will start to make sense.

Just take a look around, get to know how the site works, and enjoy what your free membership has to offer.

Let me know what you think, okay?


- John

Not a problem Merry! I know how it is to get started as well as question the legitimacy of a program, so I want you to know that you are now apart of one that actually works. To make things even better is you will not have to recruit a single person to make money. You've probably heard that before, but this is one that really doesn't. Great to have you here Merry!
