Greetings, Louis.
Paul here from Ontario, Canada.

Thank you for inviting me to be a part of network. I graciously accept by following you back.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. Online Gambling has become a multi-trillion dollar industry and continues to grow every day.
I'm sure you will carve out your space. I am not a gambler but I am very interested in learning more about 'Arbitrage Sports Trading.'

'Online' gambling is not allowed here in Canada and most of the United States. I'm sure that will change very soon. I trust that you are in the U.K. and are familiar with Betfair/Paddy Power. Probably the largest volume players in the Betting House Platforms.

I wish you much success.

I am very pleased to make your acquaintance and look forward to learning, sharing and serving with you as we all move forward here.

Kindest Regards,

Paul.

Great reply. I could not agree with you more. The way that bonuses are offered BUT THE TERMS OF THE BONUS ARE WELL HIDDEN.

My advice is if you are not playing for fun, then take the bonus, But if you want to win do NOT take the bonus.

Hi, Louis.
I do not fully understand what you are saying.
Could you elaborate a little further?

Hello
Thank you for the follow and i most definitely will be following you back.
Starting a third career at the young age of 83. That's awesome.
I have nothing but respect.
I am, like yourself, here to learn how to manoeuvre myself efficiently and effectively around this thing they call the internet. :)
Best of luck to both of us.

Have a great time
Mark

Wow Louis!

I am so impressed that you are here with us at Wealthy Affiliate. You most certainly give me hope for my next 30-50 years hehe! I am sure that you have a wealth of experiences to share with us, and I for one look forward to hearing about them.

Really appreciate you stopping by my profile page and dropping a nice note there...It is a weekend in Dubai and at the moment I am crazy busy, so no down time (it is too hot outside anyway)...I pop in and out here...

This online stuff realy is fun though, and you are in the right place to get a good start with online business. The affiliate marketing takes time to build, but it does come...

Take care of yourself and don't be a stranger please! I am 22 years behind you, but working to get to the point you are now, so I can enjoy my second (or is it third?) retirement hehe...

That moment will likely never come (full retirement), because if you are having fun and like what you are doing, it doesn't seem like work at all - so no need to retire! I am staying involved and engaged with life and it keeps my head in the life game hehe!

Cheers!
Dave : )

Thank you, do you know of any emails that could be used to promote WA?
Reply
MCrim Premium
At this point, I haven't started an email campaign. I'm concentrating on getting my sites up and ready to receive traffic. Once that's done, I'll be looking at ways to bring prospects to them. That includes email.

Hope this helps!

Good to see you in WA, Louis. I'm always glad to welcome people with some technical background, as I've chosen a tech niche - https://failsafeisolation.com/fail-safe-isolation
I hope we can help each other along this fun journey. If you need a review, an answer or whatever, let me know.
Cheers,

"Old Crock" ... great "handle" ... indicates good sense of humour! Thanks your FOLLOW ... reciprocated. After all us old codgers gotta show the young 'ens we can match them every step of the way.
Your a member at least one month longer here than me. How's it progressing. I ask cos honestly I keep getting stuck in the training now I've reached the "build a website" stage (1.5). Almost at the point am gonna subcontract this out so I can get on ...!

Great thnking, I have progressed to starting my website, but this is not a main object, In fact I wish to act as an affiliate to WA, amongst several other properties and have managed to get three funnels and methodology of delivering many emails a day to my lists.
I think it is going to take some time to build a list through the website, and one has to balance time and cost acquiring lists to being able to actually earn from a list.
E-mail marketing seems to be the route forward there, but to do it well takes a decent budget and patience,
Hope this helps.
I will leave the EU out of the conversation. Just one point, when are they going to get their auditors to sign off on their accounts?

Thanks your kind reply. Looks like you have a structured plan coupled with pragmatic realism. Sounds really good. Am proud of you ... you managed already to build your first website (which to date is more than I've been able to do - just keep getting stuck. Some days I think ... "am I just thick or what ...!" Anyway I'll plod on and get there in the end.
Hull City eh! Explains a lot ... you know how to roll with the ups & downs" Kinda reminds me Kipling's IF poem ... "... IF you can meet with triumph & disaster, and treat those two imposters just the same ..."
Actually grew up with Brentford as my local team so still follow Bees. In an earlier life was up in Hull for Reckitts doing my early Brand Management training. More years ago than I care to remember! Was on the team that created Lemsip! Most of what I can remember of Hull was the pervasive smell of fish but I guess the EU put the knackers on that industry!
Anyway love to stay in touch "old friend"!
Kind regards
Richard

Looking forward to the championship season, at least we will win some matches.
Have supported City since 1946, nd my wife worked in Reckitts at Morley Street Reckitts Blue. and Damson Lane, engineering. They gave her a cookery book when she married me, so I took her off around the world for nearly 50 years . We now are back in London with three kids and eight grandkids nearby,
Brentford are great, we have had some good players from them.

Yeah Louis ... a whole load of clubs have great ex Bees players. I hear we about to lose Jota now! I dunno!! Guess we need the dosh to build our new stadium. Brentford were once famous for being the only club with a pub on every corner! So we will meet this season!
Reckitts Blue ... oh! the clock ticks back. Funny enough the old Reckitt & Colman partnership was based on bleach & starch ... but all that's gone now!

Thank you, one small point you may know the answer, - are there any email swipes promoting WA, I cannot seem to find them.

Louis - there are no specific e-mail swipes in the training. We are encouraged to create our own content for posts, blogs and emails etc.

Hi Old Crock
Thanks for the follow,
Websites on gambling. WOW what a niche. Look at Ladbrokes, Betfair and Lottoland. That bloke who started Lottoland is a genius. It is worth billions now.
Good luck OC and see ya around the traps. Sorry had to throw that in for our dead OZZY icon Steve Irwin.
Cheers mate and all the best

Hello Louis,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also 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 right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

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! :)

Hope to get to the affiliate section soon.

Thank you Kyle, am having problems in deciding on a niche. One of the major aspects is what is the lifetime value of each customer, I would like it to be over $80, therefore my first niche would appear to be one that uses Wealth Affiliate as its major affiliate offering.
What niche would this fall under?
Reply
Kyle Premium
That could fall under many different niches. If you wan to promote WA, I highly suggest you work your way through the Affiliate Bootcamp. That will help you here. :)

Hi Tom
Thank you perhaps you can clear up a query I have about the hosting. What happens if I use optimizepress for funnel making>

I don't have experience with optimizepress, but since it is a wordpress enhancement, it should work.
