About Pamela111
Joined June 2017
Hello there, I'm Pam, proud mom of 5 grown kids and a wonderful hard working husband living in the heartland of America. California valley girl meets NY stud while we were both in the Navy. 35 years later, with the kids all out on their own, we are now parents to 3 dogs....waiting for grand-babies someday! But in the meantime I need to make up some retirement money for all those years I stayed home raising kids. I have a NY paralegal degree that rotted away when I moved to the Heartland, I am totally boot-strapped self taught in everything I know about web work, A to Z.

Internet Marketing isn't new to me; I still get checks from Hubpages for a mousetrap niche I started in 2011, but I did a few gray hat tactics and Google eventually got my related website in 2012 and others. I originally learn to code HTML web design when our Girl Scout troop needed a web page, in 1996. I dabbled before that as a hobby, you know, the days when maybe one person per housing track had a PC in their house! Eeks, I am showing my age!

Ebay was an infant when I began reselling secondhand and wholesale items and that was a pretty good income, especially when you have a boatload of kids. Then Paypal and eBay mergerd and postage rates skyrocketed, so I searched for some familiar income stream. That was when I really learned about SEO, PPC and more promoting my own eBay linked website. Fast forward to 2000, Odesk/Upwork and like sites, made finding and getting paid for virtual work much easier.

SEO, PPC, Google Analytics and building WordPress are tasks I enjoy, but I tend to get lazy with social media. I can build out the asset design and information and post, but not so good at generating traffic through it--I think because it feels too much like a chore. When Google slapped so many websites on the planet, and I listened to the moaning and groaning of people in forums and such, I kind of threw in the towel as far as internet marketing went.

For the last three years I've been employed at brick and mortar stores building websites, and all that. When I work for someone else, I tend to give 200% (Kind of demanded, but unappreciated by my last employer) and after some long conversations with myself during my 90 minute daily commute, I decided that 200% should be put into my own business. So last month, I quit.

Hello Ariel,
Thanks so much for the link to you site, but unfortunately I am not allowed to comment outside of the WA process. What I mean is that there is process for getting feedback and comments too, on your website here at WA. While I would love to help you, it would be much better for you and me, if we follow the procedure Kyle has set up, that way we all benefit, in the point system. You see, as a professional SEO, I actually charge what you are asking me to do, because it is actually time consuming, professionally that is. Here at WA, we have this process knowing this, the process that Kyle has set up kind of pays us in points to leave feedback or even site comments on your website. So, if you read that link I sent you that someone recently wrote, you'll get the idea. IF you still don't understand, just search site feedback, there is a ton of information on it.
Sorry, just sticking to the process. Good luck.From a cursory look right off the bat, I would change the image, don't use the images that came with the theme. Don''t indent one space on each paragraph, Use bolded subtitles with similar keyword or keywords in the same subject (latent semantic words) in sections of your post/subtitles, and maybe focus it around your keyword, I didn't really see what that was right off the bat.

I do so apologize! I did not know the complete etiquette. Please forgive me if I have in any way compromised you!
It did not dawn on me that there was only one way to get feedback. And I have had loads of trouble getting through on that site, it keeps telling me that my gravatar is not correct.

Thank you for going the extra mile and giving me feedback anyway. I will definitely take it all in.
in peace and gratitude,ariel

Hello Ariel, no need to apologize, trying to be diplomatic, yet not hurt anyone's feelings, sometimes.....anyhow, just follow the certification and it will come to how to set it up and use it. What I sent you was someone else's blog on how to use it. It's probably the same, but the certification course will cover when you need to ask for feedback, and how to set it up. Good luck. If I can help any other way, just let me know.

Hello Pamela and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined and with your previous experience you will know that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck on anything (which I doubt) then can I suggest you browse some of the 300+ blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Enjoy your day.

Hello Pam,♫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

Good for you Pam with all that knowledge you should do well here. I have a naval background from 80-86 back in Australia. I live here in London UK with my twin boys. I bought a pop up website and transferred it to WA and now I'm going through the source code to tweak things, I'm a bit lazy when it comes to having to design something from scratch. Hope to see you around WA and all the best on your endeavours.

Ah Yes, tinker tinker, I have that problem, but this time, I'm going to try speed sites, like speed dating, lol. As many as I can, as fast as I can, with care though. I hope I stick to my plan...more writing less tinkering. Ready made it good, it saves a lot of time. I was thinking about making ready mades, and flipping them, but there are so many already in Flippa, I want to find ones that people can really earn from, so they come back for more. Good Luck.

Many employers don't appreciate loyal people, seems working on your own is a little boring, sounds like you need to be around people and benchmarks to achieve that challenge you. it is a bit lonely sitting at a computer all day with no conversation, maybe you should consider a people business, plenty of interaction

Well, actually, not quite sure where you are coming from, I love what I am doing. Been working virtually for a long time any worked brick and mortar last 3 years. I quit to work for myself and a chance to make a lot more money I hope. You see, the things you are going to be learning here, I have done for other people as a job for the last 7 years. I watched them make money. I did all the work for them. Now I am doing it for myself. I didn't learn from them, they learned from me, if they wanted to. Many did not want to know the particulars of SEO and web building, they just wanted it done! I am here to see how Kyle and his brother achieved what they are doing for everyone. I hope to someday soon be able to coach people as well with a membership type of site in a in a different subject.

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! :)

Wow, Pam! It sounds like you have a lot more experience starting out here than many of us did. :) But it sounds like you may be able to fill in the gaps, help out others is some areas and build a network where you can get the help you need when you need it. I personally love it here, not only for the training, but for the community when I can get the support and help I need almost any time - whether for my WP page formatting or feedback on an idea or a post or... whatever!

I hope you enjoy it here as much as I do! WELCOME again!!! :)

Hello Robin,
Yep, lots of information in my brain, that I need to dump into myself instead of "the man", lol. I helped other businesses, now it time to help myself again. I kind of gave up after Panda, but its time to get back on the horse. Lots of things have changed in the last few years, I have a lot of gap filling to do, you are right about that. Have a great Monday.

Pam

How are things going today? Just wanted to pop in to see how things are going with you thus far and how your website/niche is coming along.

Hope you are rocking it Pam and of course (and as always) I am in your corner if you ever need anything!

Hey Pam,

I forgot to mention the other day that I am going to still be offering you my awesome bonuses if you join within the next 4 days.

Here are the bonuses that you are going to be getting:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)
(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there. Where else can you access the CEO of the company for help?
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well Pam and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)

Here we are, 10 days into your experience at WA. :)

I hope things are going well Pam! I want to remind you of one thing, your hard work and dedication IS going to pay off. Keep working through the training, communicating within the community, and of course, ask for help when you need it.

Just heading out for a bit here, but do leave me a message if you need a hand with anything. You should have Premium communication back for an additional 7 days now, so hit me up when you get a chance Pam!

Hello Pam,

Have you set up your account yet? It really does make a difference - the community here are really interested in each other and knowing a bit about a person makes a big difference. Setting up your account is as simple as
uploading an image (of yourself or something that represents you) and writing a short description about yourself on your profile page.

So have you had time to look a round a bit? Have you started to work through the "Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1)" training found on your dashboard and within the main menu?
Here is the link if you need it: If you have any questions, do ask them. No question is considered too small around here. You can ask me, or jump into live chat and ask there, or click on "Classrooms" in the main menu to start a discussion on a topic you need help on. Of course you can always ask questions in the discussion area at the bottom of any lesson page.

Are you considering sticking around and signing up for a monthly subscription? If so, you might want to remember that if you do it within the first seven days of joining, you can get the first month at a 59% discount of just $19. You can choose to remain on a free account for as long as you wish. There is tons you can learn just on the free account. But if you would like access to everything, you might want to consider signing up sooner than later.

I hope you are starting to make friends and see the opportunities available here.

Let me know if I can help in any way,
Robin

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate, Pam!

Are you ready to embark on a journey? Are you ready to learn how you can build your own website and start your own online business.. at your own pace, on your own time?

First things first: It is a good idea to complete your account setup - this includes uploading an image and adding a description on your profile page. When your account is properly set up, you have a much better opportunity for communication with the other members here.
Here is a short video which explains it in more detail if you are interested: Next step: Click on the green "Get Started Here" button that is near the top left side of your screen. That will start you on your first course initially letting you know what is what. Or just click on the link below: So.... take a look around if you want and explore a bit.

How to claim your bonus:
If you like it here and decide to go Premium within the first 7 days, you will get:
1. a 59% discount on your 1st month of Premium membership ( i.e. $19 instead of $47)
2. personal and private support from me.
Premium membership gives access to private messaging within the WA community. So you will be able to get help from me (and all other WA members) privately.
3. "Top 9 Tips for Beginners"
As soon as you go Premium (within the first seven days), you will receive a private message from me giving you access to these bonuses.

I hope you like it here.
Please feel free to contact me at any time. You can leave a message or question on my profile page. (Just click on my robin image to go straight to my profile page.)

Once again, welcome and I hope you enjoy. :)
Robin
