About Newlive
Joined April 2018
Hi, my name is Gus, I have just started with wealthy affiliates today. 24/04/2018 I hope to make this day a significant one in my life. It is the start of the new life I have always wanted for myself and my family and friends and neighbours.

I heard of Wealthy Affiliates years ago and joined then too, but I was not ready to embrace the culture here and I was chasing the dream not the reality, Work got in the way and I let it slide till this year. The reason why I ended up here... again, hopefully, it is for good, I got an email from another internet marketer, his program will remain nameless for now. I have heard of him, so I decided to join his program. 2018 and I was looking for opportunities. I have had enough of what I was doing and needed to re-configure my life.

I ended up in his program, the trial fee was $1...lol... very intriguing I thought ok lets do this, as with some programs that sells you a trial for a dollar, that dollar mounts up quickly!!...very soon I was facing a bill of over $1000USD, if you live in Australia like I do the exchange rate is a killer, looking at over $1500AUD...hmmm..Why so much? because I have to have his Traffic course ..lol...I read somewhere that internet marketing should not be THAT expensive...!...I had to re-apprise my priorities and decided to look at other alternatives before committing to that sum of money. I came across WEALTHY AFFILIATES and AFFILIARAMA. Both of these programs appeared to be on par and they seem to offer the same training but at a much more reasonable cost!

Why did I choose WEALTHY AFFILIATE? so many stories about the success on this platform. I did not give this program my full attention years ago and now the wheels have turned full circle and I have to commit here for rest of 2018 and beyond. So here I am and I hope to meet like minded people here following the same road to success.Hi everyone.... All you need is purpose and faith.

Hi Gus, Thanks for following me all the way from downunder! I like you have been on many a search for an online business that would actually delver on what they say will be and not the endless amount of money coming out of my pocket. So now that we have both discovered and are willing to do the serious work necessary I am sure success is within our grasp. Here's to you, Gus. All the best, Julie

Wow , encouraging and realistic! Thanks for sharing your story with us, I will heed your words of wisdom and stay focused. The work-a-day life we all find ourselves in can sometimes seem like a barrier to all we hope to accomplish through WA. But I have learned to re-tool that thinking into the reality of what it is!
That being... the nessecary steps on a journey of realization concerning the bigger plan! In many regards, I personally was not ready For this until such a time as now, and through maturity, struggles, and hardships have found the appropriate ingredients to tackle this adventure now in life!

I appreciate your story, and am inspired by the simplicity of it!!

Most grateful to you!

Regards

Great story Gus. There are many people here who have tried different money making ways and have found its very difficult for so many reasons.
Here at WA, as you have noticed, there is a solid plan laid out for those who really wish to succeed and learn. Glad you found WA and best of wishes to you going forward.

Hey Amejin, thank you for the comments, yes I have been here for a couple of months now, I had all this ideas of how to be an internet marketer but this place actually shows you how to do it the right way!....so if you are just starting out here I would suggest stick to one website niche and make it your learning website where you make your mistake and success...some people rush into building several websites and it can get out of hand..once the first website is running properly then you can copy what you did on the next website..
Wishing you well and let me know if you need help

Very well said Gus. It is very easy to lose focus and find yourself missing a step. The idea of doing one website is a good one. The work spent doing even just two is double so it is likely to take a person twice as long to achieve success, if not more since it is important to be adding content and improvements on a regular basis. Guess its all in the time and dedication a person has.
thanks so much for taking your time to provide a response.

Hi Gus! Thanks for the follow! I’m new here too but lik you I’ve wanted money on other programs (a LOT of money!) before landing here.
The most impressive thing about WA to me is the willingness of everyone to help you with any questions that come up.

I wish you much success, and feel free to ask for help if needed, you’ll never be let down.

Hey there Gus thank you for following me back!!!! I'm happy to meet you and I salute you for coming back to this program I found it also just a little over a week ago coming from I believe the same program that you came from with that guy who ends up costing $1,000 for his traffic program hahaha. You know I feel really good here too and I'm enjoying the training and I believe we're in the right place to succeed with a good foundation. Yes I agree purpose in faith and good actions that we're learning through the training and participating in the culture they really seem to be all the good ingredients!!!

Hello Gus
I'm a newbie, just scared of all the scams.. I see slot of profiles but no success stories yet, just need some assurance. Not saying you can give me the answers.. but I'm lost on the internet thing.. I have no clue, and don't wanna be scammed..
Thanks for sharing your story too.

Hi Fox, I understand completely what you are going through, I have been scammed so many times I put it down as that is sometimes the price you have to pay to find the diamond in the rough!!... lol....As to being here at WA, this journey is going to pay dividends for you if you stick around and learn internet marketing, I have been building websites and other things on the net and I do understand internet marketing but I am finding out more being here. They know what they are talking about, if anything just learn as much as you can. You will not be misled, and if you have any problems just let me know ok...the whole thing about starting a business online is sometimes scary and you need the support, this is where this place really shines ask any questions and someone will be there to answer.. So please lay your fears aside and go for it. Remember a step at a time, take as long as you want. I hope this answers some questions you might have ...take care

Thank you Gus for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. When first starting your affiliate marketing website many members have problems coming up with niche ideas.

Probably the one main problem is that people tend to over-think the simple process of finding a niche. Just sit back and look around you. You have niches everywhere. You are even wearing different niches.

Though it is important to fully understand that any niche can be profitable, there are certain niche markets that will be more profitable than others. You might think that the market is saturated but there is plenty of room to earn.

The niches in these 2 types of profitable categories (Evergreen and Passions) are plentiful and broad. Like all niches they will need to be narrow and focused. The more they are, the more profitable they become.

I created a tutorial that explains the differences in these two groups and provide you with many niche and sub niche ideas for each category. If you are having problems choosing a niche, click the link below.

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! :)

Thnx Kyle, appreciate the welcome, There are lots of things to see and experience on this site, I am just getting started. I will be here for awhile. Thank you again.
Just a quick question, I posed this elsewhere as well:
Why are people following me ??? and should I follow them back??... and why do I have too??...What is the purpose of it.

Thanks
Gus

You can follow whoever you like, follow people that help you, follow you or that interest you.

It is up to you, those that you do follow you will be notified when they publish blog posts/questions here at WA. It is your way of networking with others and building your circle of friendships here within WA.

Hope this clarifies for you Gus!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Gus!

John here from http://Jvanderlaan.com. I'm glad to see you've signed up and are ready to get started building your online business.

Right now, there are just two super important things you need to know.

1) If you ask questions and interact with the community you are far more likely to see results with your business. The support here at WA is the best in the internet marketing industry...please take advantage of it.

2) You can access me for 1-on-1 support by leaving a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/jvanderlaan or by responding directly to this message.

There are a ton of other features worth exploring, but they are explained in the main training. Time to get started on the first lesson!

PS. Did you know that you'll already have your website built by lesson 4? Crazy, I know!

Before you go, can you please respond to this message so I know you made it inside the community? I'd like to connect with you so I can keep an eye out for your questions this week.

Best,
JV
