Hello There!

Welcome to my profile page!

I signed up for an account in Wealthy Affiliate in 2016 but only really joined and went Premium from Apr 2020.

2020 has been a life-changing experience for everyone. I wouldn't mention the "C" word, but you and I know what has happened this year.

It certainly changed my life as well, in perhaps a drastic way. But mystically, it has been a refreshing change for me, a different direction in life to pursue. An exciting world ahead.

As I reflected upon what happened to me earlier this year, I have a realization that something I have changed in the previous year may have started to take effect. The universe is charting me on a different course.

It is a life-changing experience, but I believe it will bring me greater happiness in the long run.

Perhaps like many of you, I am weary of my salaried job, working really long hours and no time with my family. It has taken a toll on my health too.

Is it really worth it losing my health, losing the golden moments with my 2 young ones growing up, and precious time with my wife?

A change is much needed, and 2020 presents an opportunity.

Being a part of the Wealthy Affiliate family for more than half a year now, I have learned a lot.

From not knowing how to set up a website, I now have a website of my own that I can call an asset.

From not knowing what does affiliate marketing mean, I now understood what needs to be done to earn an income from it.

From not knowing what SEO and social media engagement is about, I now have a good idea about it.

All this is thanks to Wealthy Affiliate, and perhaps also my personal coach here, which I don't know how I found him or how he found me back in 2016.

There is a time for everything.

I have much to be done, to put what I have learned, the knowledge gained, into practice and actions in manageable parts.

Eventually, I will be able to generate enough income streams for myself and allow me to have more time with my family. And within my abilities, I will strive to help thousands of others as one of my life goals.

To Our Success.

Richard

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliates you will reach your goals step by step, and be able to eventually break away from that. I commiserate with your plight, I was there a few times that's why I stopped working directly for companies. Salaried means your an indentured servant, or worse, and you end up working for free. So for you its time to make your successful escape. The Wealthy Affiliates community is very supportive and informative, you will find a lot of help here

Hi Richard, thanks for adding me to your network. May I ask you a question in connection with your profile message?

You joined in 2016. What is your progress so far?

I joined in December 2018. My focus is on the MMO niche where my goal is to help others discover Wealthy Affiliate. As well as other MMO opportunities from the affiliate networks. I am writing content such as reviews and how to's for the benefit of my visitors.

My progress has been slower than I anticipated. However, the more I learn the more I know where and why I am falling short. I take full responsibiity.

May I share how I am approaching this business and ask for your opinion?

1) Select a niche where you can find a good target market
2) Create a website to write compelling content to help people
3) Create a lot of content. (This is the bottle neck)
4) Promote ones content on social media
5) Build an Email list using a landing page offering a freebie
6) Engage in Email marketing
7) Study the analytics and tweak

I have completed 1 and 2 and working on 3 and 4. Haven't started 5 and 6. I do study the analytics but my traffic is insufficient yet to use it effectively. There is plenty of training available to help me so I have no excuses.

The areas I know that need a lot of work are 3-6.

Since you have been here longer, how does this approach stack up?

Thanks for any feedback you can give.

Cheers.

Hi Edwin,

Actually, I signed up this account back in 2016 but didn't managed to pursue until Apr this year. :p

I am also working on 1) and 2) and starting 4).

3) is a bottleneck for me as well.

I have this thought that between 1) and 3) or literally 1) to 7), we also need to gear up and have a relatively good knowledge on building our website, like choosing themes and how to customise them to your liking comfortably, use Gutenberg, embed video in your post minimising the load time, add social icons in the right way and the list goes on. This takes up a lot of time for me that I struggle with focusing on content.

I felt that we need to feel comfortable with knowing how to change things in our asset (our website) because it complements our content building. It can also in some way affect our thought process perhaps. Its a bit like Feng Shui, you want to feel comfortable with your website and not just thinking about content but also at the same time focus on it too.

A balance need to be somehow managed. When you feel good with your surrounding, you do / write things better too. I suppose that's just logical.

And that's what I'm facing at the moment. I want to change my theme to GeneratePress but there are things I haven't figured out how to customise. I like the look and feel of my current theme but performance is not so good and I believe Google may penalise me at some point or already has.

I haven't done a MMO niche and I am wondering whether I should. I thought if I haven't been successful yet on my own niche to prove affiliate marketing or online business works for me, how do I convince myself to do a MMO niche.

Much apologies Edwin, it seems like I couldn't offer you much but more like the other way round.

Cheers,
Richard

Hi Richard,

Sorry that I overlooked you recently rejoined WA. Did you attend Jay's live webinar today? His subject was about selecting themes for ones website and he featured Generate Press and we also discussed some of your concerns. His last two webinars have been about websites. And this will continue into the rest of July. Here is the link:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/webinar

I wish you well in your efforts. You made some relevant suggestions that I will be looking into.

Do not go into MMO right now. If you haven't come across this training by Kyle, you may find it helpful regarding niche and target markets: Let me know how you are doing.

All the best to you.

Cheers.

Edwin
