About OldGoat54
Joined June 2014
Greetings Everyone !

I call myself OldGoat because I am retired and am obviously older than most of you . I still have all my marbles, though ,so decided to use them by doing something I had not done as yet - - -succeed at online marketing .

Ive had a pretty interesting life. You might say I've done it all ( well most of it !) I've had good years and bad, tasted success and failure and , believe me , success is much more fun !

I spent my earlier years in the U S Army which gave me the tremendous opportunity to live and travel in Europe, which I enjoyed immensely.

My wife passed away 10 years ago ,so I live alone in a retirement community..My two daughters live nearby ,with a special needs son ,who I am very close to .

I have many interests ranging from Bridge , chess , sports and I try to stay abreast of what's going on in this crazy world we live in.( Whew !)

I want to add one more achievement before I turn myself out to pasture. I want to clearly WIN at this ONLINE GAME . So , hopefully we will be able to help each other as our paths meet in this community . Let's sieze the moment, as they say , CARP DIEM !

Thanks for the follow. I often think of the Colonel Sanders who founded Kentucky Fried Chicken. “Work is the basis for living. I’ll never retire. A man will rust out quicker than he’ll ever wear out. And I’ll be darned if I’ll ever rust out.” Cheers!

Hi George

For some reason, the system is not letting me reply to your PM, so I have posted the info here for you reG+ ... hope that's ok?

This is a link to download a guide which is quite good:

http://www.vocus.com/blog/infographic-marketing-success-with-google/

You have to provide a phone number etc but I signed up with a false one.

You can try this link FIRST:

http://images.prsoftware.vocus.com/Web/Vocus/{0f0e6087-3e4a-47be-8579-81c9ed646ac0}_Vocus_-_Google_Plus.pdf

This is my download link but not sure it will work for you.

People adding you to their circles means that they can include you when posting something, so you will see it on your G+ account too. Similarly, when you make a post, you can share it to your different circles or you can just chose to make it public so that everyone sees it.

Hello George,
Thanks for the follow and a belated welcome to WA. I guess its a tough job trying to stay abreast of things....I often call myself a wannabee polymath (know it all) but they say the last time it was possible to have a handle on all knowledge was during Leonardo da Vinci's time!

Thank you SO MUCH for your "following me", I am also following YOU now. By the way, thank you for serving our country!! I mean that from the bottom of my heart. I am sure you will do GREAT HERE. I am still new here also. I am on Course 1 Lesson 6. But that does not mean I am not able to help you. So, if you ever need help, you are more than welcome to send me a Private Message! I will do my best to help. Your new friend, Kevin :-) p.s. You are NOT AN OLD GOAT! Unless your mind tells you that, but if you still have "all of your marbles" and you are here at WA, then you are young as your mind tells you are :-).

Hello OldMule ,

I just wrote you a long private message but could not send it ( another mystery !)

Basically , I having all kinds of problems with the simplest things ( i just don't know what I am doing ) and I feel the videos do not explain everything ( I get hung up on some small point that is not covered ). For instance, I am having trouble working with choosing a theme (Lessons 2 and 3 in the Affilate Bootcamp) I have no problem at this point with Keywords so content is not a problem.

What I want to do for starters is set up a simple ,free website to promote WA .If I can get into some production , then I have time to devote to other , more advanced concepts . I am prepared to delete everything I have done so far ( iT'S TOO MUCH OF A TANGLED MESS TO WASTE TIME TRYING TO UNDO IT ) and simply start over .

So if you feel you can help me , I will be greatly appreciative.

Thanks for your interest

Kindest regards ,

George S Petley

Hi George - sure thing. Please get skype and we can live chat for free - much easier to guide you using that as we can also screen share to problem solve too. If it is new to you - go to youtube and search for how to use skype - it is easy and free.
Chat soon.

Hey, did you get a chance to ask any questions?

Go ahead, test out WA and see what the members have to say! You can ask anything you want in the Getting Started Classroom here https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/getting-started (Newbie questions ALLOWED!) or you can drop by my profile to get 1-on-1 help from me https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/nathaniell

Hey there, I just wanted to check in and see if you had any questions about what you've seen at WA so far. A lot of people get information overload in the first couple days.

The one piece of advice that helped me when I got started was that there is a huge difference in success rates between those that interact with the community and those that don't. Part of learning all this new stuff is going to require that you ask questions when you don't understand.

So, my suggestion is this.

1) Put up a profile pic

2) Write a short introduction about yourself

3) Drop in on my profile to say hello

Doing these things will help you meet people in the community and see what WA is all about. You can start learning how to build a profitable business on the internet by clicking the green "Get Started Here" button on your left. I hope you enjoy your time in Wealthy Affiliate!

Welcome to the Wealthy Affiliate Online Business community. In the coming days you are doing to learn about how the Internet can be leveraged to earn a substantial amount of money online. BUT, before this can happen you need to understand that in order to achieve success at anything, it will take a bit of work and you will hit a few bumps in the road along the way.

That is why I am here and that is why there is a big community here that is behind you (and rooting for you) every step of the way. If you ever need anything Georges, I am here to help so just let me know.

You can get started right away by working on the "Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1)" course found here:

Hi Georges, Nathaniell here. Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

I'm glad to see you've signed up and are ready to get started.

Before you start making money, there are just two things you need to know.

1) Those who ask questions interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their goals. Watch this video here to learn how to maximize your community reach in WA https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/completing-your-account-set-up-at-wa-adding-a-description-image

More buddies means more support. More support means more success.

2) You can get started learning how to make money by doing your Level 1 Certification Course. Click on the green "Get Started Here" button or just click this link https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1/getting-rolling. Remember that you can ask any questions you want in live chat, on your personal blog, or in the Getting Started Classroom here https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/getting-started

And don't forget that you can also access me for 1-on-1 support by leaving a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/nathaniell or by private message if you are a premium member.


★ ★ ★ How To Access Your Exclusive Bonuses ★ ★ ★

I also wanted to let you know that if you join the premium membership in this 7 day window you'll get a TON of awesome stuff.

First off, you'll get a 59% discount ($19.95 for 1 month) on your membership. Twenty bucks for you first month of WA is an absolute steal. This is available to all members. But I've lined up some other things which are a bit more exclusive.


☆ ☆ Bonus #1: Live Case Study 3 Part Webinar Series

Get access to a 3-Part-Series Live Case Study webinar. It's video series where a professional internet marketer creates a complete 'niche website'. All steps are included and thoroughly explained. Total length of the videos is about 3 hours.

This will give you a broad overview of the type of site you will create on Wealthy Affiliate. I think it's always a good idea to know the direction you are headed before you start your journey.


☆ ☆ Bonus #2: Exclusive Look at The Top 5 Newbie Mistakes And How To Fix Them

Some questions get asked over and over again. It's very likely you have these same questions.

This is a two-part bonus. It includes an exclusive video not available to other WA members where I create a website EXACTLY how the training teaches you. Many new members don't follow the instructions properly and can't get their sites to work. Watch this video first, and you'll be up and running in 20 minutes with your own .com hosted here on WA.

I have also included 5 newbie website design and setup tips. These are super easy ways to turn your site from a basic Wordpress install into a streamlined canvas ready for action, and ready to impress your traffic.

This means you will be able to bypass these typical mistakes, get started faster, and on the right foot. This is an exciting time - you are building the foundations of a profitable online business, and I want to help you get started as quickly and smoothly as possible.
