About Newfie
Joined March 2011
Hello Everyone! My name is Jon.

I just signed up to Wealthy Affiliate. As many of you out there I imagine, I am here to start my online adventure into Affiliate Marketing. I am currently working as an utility worker in a hospital. While it does pay the bills, and keep me going, I still dream of having enough to not only pay off my debts, but sustain myself and my family without the headache of working for someone else, or the thought of looking at my boss anymore. LOL! Seriously, I am here to make a real go of this and I look forward to meeting everyone here and building a brighter future together.

Otherwise, I do have a background in computers. I have a computer support specialist certificate and am quite capable with computers. That is mostly the technical side of computers though. The hardware aspect, windows, software, and operating aspects. It ought to be an asset here, but I am also very willing to answer any questions about issues you may be having with your computers. I love computers!

Jonathan, 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 Jonathan.

Hi Kyle,

That's very encouraging to know that everyone that went through bootcamp has an online business creating income. I have just completed the 4th lesson in course 1. I'm almost done lesson 5, which was easy of course. So I am going to try and get through lesson 6, or at least start it today.

Yes it can be overwhelming. I know the thinking part can be a real hang up That's what happened to me with lesson 4 for a number of days. It was like a mental block. I finally decided to plow through it and just do it even if I didn't understand completely or know what I was doing exactly. The initial not understanding part made no difference to completing the tasks and just understanding how to perform the task. I know it will all click and come together since it is just a piece of the puzzle. That's where I think my mind was stuck on a piece rather than knowing it as part of the whole. So I know too as you already said before that it will become second nature. I'm very thankful for your encouragement!

I am determined that even to reach my goals. I want to become successful at this not only for myself, but my wife. We want to be free from our current jobs to travel and do more important things in life. I already know of one person here that has already attained that freedom by supporting himself and his wife.

Thanks for checking in Kyle. I really appreciate it. By the way, you can just call me Jon.

Thanks again,
Jon

It will all click and it will all come together. Like anything new, it will seem very much foreign at first but as you take action on what you learn, that is where the really learning and the real comfort will derive out of.

Of course, if you ever hit a stumbling block, myself and 1,000's of others will be here to lend you a hand Jon. I look forward to seeing your progress!

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! :)

Hi Kyle,

I am some glad you asked. That is exactly what is going on. I had decided reviewing products would be an excellent way to grab someone's attention. I went ahead and purchased two domains, but now I am thinking I may have jumped the gun with the names I chose. The two sites are listed on the side of my profile, legittest.com, and heavenswarehouse.com. I was going to review products with legittest.com and either review or just straight supply needs to christians through the other site.

Do you think the domain's are specific enough? Can I use a subdomain for reviewing say smart bulbs, and how effective are subdomains versus just a domain itself? I would rather the best option, so please let me know which one that is.

Also, since I decided a straight review site is too broad of a scope. Do you think smart bulbs are a wise choice for a niche? For heavenswarehouse.com do you think I could just start small and scale up, or should I have went with a more specific domain name/niche?

I am a bit brain boggled, but I think I just need a little clear direction. If necessary I could purchase another domain or two to better relate to my niche's. I want my best foot forward! :-)

I know this is a bit long, but you are the best one to ask I figure.

One more thing though. Where do you get content such as images? Do you create your own, do the websites you become an affiliate marketer for provide them, or from free sources?

I hope that isn't too much to inquire of you! I am over the moon to be part of this community you and Carson have created and look forward to being a long time member!

Thanks Kyle,

Jon

I wouldn't get into use sub domains for your niche, I would also use the root of the domain to operate your business. It will lead to much better rankings as you only want ONE niche/website per domain.

legittest.com is a catchy domain and very brandable, but you will want to narrow down what niche you are "testing" or reviewing products within. You don't want to try to be a catch all or it is really going to create issues in respect to your rankings as well as defining whom you are to your audience.

There are many ways in which you can find and add images to your website. I have outlined this within a video walk-through that I created on images. This is very thorough and will give you a lot of great ideas as to how you can find and incorporate images on your website. Also, do know that if you are an affiliate of Amazon you can use any of the images (product) from their website on your website, which opens you up to an image bank of MILLIONS of images.

There are also other CC0 sites out there that you can leverage. These are free public domain images to use how you wish.

This should get you going!

Wow, thanks a lot Kyle. That certainly gives me more direction with what I am going to do with those websites. It also gives me a much better perspective on how to approach things as I create these websites. I can't thank you enough for these things alone.

Then, you answered very neatly how to overcome my images hurdle. That was exactly what I needed to know, and I think I can make a lot of progress given that information, on top of the niche/domain advice.

Every step in the right direction is a step closer to achieving my goals, and I will achieve them! I believe that.

Thank you so much, as I'm sure you're very busy. I know you've got your family, your own websites to maintain, and the wealthy affiliate community. That's very inspiring to know you accomplished and continue to accomplish so much, even just daily.

God bless,

Jon

Glad to help you out Jon and as you move forward this stuff is going to become second nature and you will be able to focus on learning new stuff. I have been at this 14 years now and I still learn new things each and every day. It makes it exciting!

Keep up the great work!

I appreciate it Kyle. I agree with that too. Like anything, the more you do it the easier it is. Don't be surprised if I come looking for more answers. Though I'm pretty observant so I don't think you have to worry too much! lol.

Thanks again,

Jon

Thank you all for the welcome to WA! Quite the reception so far, and very pleasing to see. I am into my first training lesson and doing quite well. Have posted my affiliate link for WA on my facebook status informing my friends about my new adventure and the trial if they caught it in time. Perhaps send out emails as it suggested now very shortly, and as for my WA Spaces, I think this is a good start! Thank you all again, and I look forward to working with you all, and to much success for us all here with WA. Back to the lessons! Jon

Welcome to WA. There's lots of information here at WA so don't let it overwhelm you. Start by taking the training in the Training Center. I also suggest going to potpiegirls blog. You will find info there that will get you started including some videos. Then go to either magistudio's blog or up to the Wabinars and go to the two videos I feel will jump start you in the right direction. There entitled An Affiliate Walk through 1 & 2. Enjoy and MUCH SUCCESS.
