Hi I'm Murray from New Zealand. I love to travel and have been to many great places in the world. I'm fit and healthy...love the outdoors...if you haven't been to New Zealand its a great place for outdoor adventure...the people are friendly and easy going.
I'm motivated and a go get it type of person. I have an accounting background...currently working in the delivery industry...hoping to change that to internet marketing, I'm a complete beginner at this but have the drive and passion to success at most things I try. Sport has been a big part of my life...have represented New Zealand in Triathlon and Duathlon.
Any other questions just ask...

Hello Murray,♫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

Hi Murray! THanks a million for the follow back. Here is my website so far. http://petcharitiesdubai-animalservices.com/ it is still raw and in the beginning stages. I do not get as much time as I want to spend with it. also I am just reaching the end of course 2. so now adverts and social media stuff on here yet. and I am still learning to modify my pictures on with canva.

so here is my site. read my welcome page and then you can comment there if you want or read one of my posts and comment on that. what ever you feel like. but if you have some constructive criticism, please share with me and will look into it. of course our sites aren't perfect and any help is appreciated.


cheers Erica :-)

Hi Erica, Thanks for the follow...just left a message on your welcome page. Nice site, has the makings to be a good one.
I'm the same...time is a big factor and I definitely need to spend more time on mine too.

So do you still do eventing? My son has just got into it...its his first season. He loves the jumping side of it...very expensive sport though.

Good luck with your site :-)

Hi Murray! Thanks a million!
Unfortunately I do not ride anymore due to an ongoing injury preventing me from riding-but ye, riding is very rewarding but like you said can be a bit pricey. he he. but it is like any sport I guess, plus you have a pet :-) A huge one.

I know your son loves the jumping side, but encourage him to do the flatwork side too, if not more. a souple well balanced horse tends to jump better.

Good luck with your site too and drop a link to new things anytime and I will leave a comment.

CHeers E ;-)

Hi Erica,
Thanks for the riding advice...luckily his pony club encourages flatwork.
Do you have any flatwork suggestions or is there somewhere I could find some schedules I could give my son to do during the week? Perhaps thats something you could add to you website...just a thought.

Shame about your injury must be a serious one.

Cheers
Murray

I can still ride leisurely, but not professionally. and the job I'm in right now the level of riding required is too high and I cant maintain the standards without hurting everyday :-)- hence I'm stuck behind the desk instead. But I can still do other sports and things no problem. but it is okay. I have WA now and learning new skillz.

The riding instructor at the pony club for sure will have more than enough to teach your son. Each horse and person is different. Just get the basics down as to it become 2nd nature, then hard work after that. he he. horsey people tend to be addicted and very stubborn.

Hey Murray and welcome to the company! I see from your profile that you are a traveler and you'd like to come into the difficult field of online business. Just follow some "golden rules" and you will be a success story. You can find some of those rules on websites. Personally, I think that your website is clean and it seems to be professional. Please visit my profile, I'm in urgent need of some comments in all the websites that I have been created on WA this year.
Have a great day!

Hi Kyle
thanks for that...haven't had a chance to get back on and learn some more over the last couple of days.Work and family make it a little difficult but I'll get there. Have chosen my niche. My passion is the outdoors, so have chosen walking /hiking. Not sure how competitive that is? I've hiked all over the world and done some of the great ones...New Zealand is an amazing place to walk as well. So I could have a website that talks about great walks of the world or great walks in New Zealand with informative information on each of them...With links to apparal, equipment, nutrition etc.
What do you think? Would that work?
Content is obviously very important and my next lesson.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Why don't you start with an aspect of hiking?

Hiking Equipment
Hiking Nutrition
Hiking trails in New Zealand
etc

That way you can start much more narrow (which is still a huge niche) and then diversify as you start to gain a brand. That is the approach I would suggest you take, hiking is a little too broad.
Reply
MurrayD Premium
Thanks Kyle. I was wondering if it was. My thought was having a website with informative information about hiking which would hopefully create traffic. My thought was if I could give something useful and free then people would more likely come to my website or refer others or clink on my links for products like equipment, apparel, nutrition etc which I'll be promoting.
Also thought about a donation box where people could shout me a cup of coffee etc if they found the information was of use.

Donation boxes don't really work well, you won't earn any money this route. You are better off helping people and offering them information (that builds trust) and then making product recommendations. That will lead to conversions and revenue for you.

Hey i saw you're post on Kyle's wall and figured id help you out a bit. But before that welcome to WA.

Every question you asked Kyle has an answer in Course 1. If you were wondering, Yes It is free to take the course :) in fact you can have 2 free websites also.

Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1)

''basicly how does this work?'' That's broad questions to answer my friend.

''An affiliate posts links for a CPA company right?'' Affiliate marketing is internet advertising that allows any online business to affiliate themselves with web site owners (known as affiliates or publishers) using affiliate programs. Affiliates make money by generating sales, leads and traffic for the Merchants business. There is more than 1 one way to make money on the internet. Signing up with WA will open up a whole new world for you.

''So how long would it take for a beginner to earn money?'' a better question would be '' how long will it take you're site to rank on the first page of google''. When you're first starting out you should be more concerned about traffic, Not so much the money. Traffic = Money. That being said it can take any where from you're first week to you're first year. There are a lot of deciding factors. Let me know if you have any other questions about WA.

MurrayD Premium
Hey thanks for that. Yes I'm aware traffic equates to money. How does one create traffic? Having gone through some of the courses,its clear deciding on a niche is very important and obviously the building of a website...my next lesson.

Nice and warm here at the moment.. for January anyway :) ... My money started tricking in a few days ago .. it has not been much at the moment but it is proof enough that the system and training here at WA works...

Keeps the motivation there to carry on :)

and NZ eh? I was there many years ago .. in 1998 .. for one month - Christchurch ..but i am sure it is all different now after that horrible earthquake..

Hope you are doing OK buddy :)
