About PatsyC
Joined March 2017
Hello everyone my name is Patsy and I look forward to this new journey, meeting, chatting and learning with everyone! I am excited to be a part of Wealthy Affiliate and can't wait to be a success story :)

It's awesome to be in a community that includes the whole world!

I joined on March 8th, 2017.
I became a Premium Member March 10th, 2017.
I bought my own domain name March 14th!
I live in Sudbury, Ontario Canada :)

I don't get discouraged easily and I'm not negative, always positive. I have ideas of what I want and once I get started, there is no stopping me. I have decades of experience in sales, management, customer service and have been successful. I have helped people all my life since I was young.

I got tired of the bully bosses and co-workers. I grew up in family business and my Dad had another one on the side, and kept telling myself I should have my own. My Mom and Dad are both 86 years old and..my Dad still has his business! He has a stone quarry on Manitoulin Island and creates amazing landscape 'art work' with the stone he cuts. He has been doing this for almost 50 yrs. Imagine.
This is where I get my drive and patience.

I know I will be a success, I have been searching for my final 'career' and I know this is it. I can't wait to see how well I do :)

Thank you to everyone who is following me!
Thanks to Kyle and Carson for creating this for all of us :)

Hi Patsy,

I just thought I would warm you up a little. You are getting freezing cold weather and we are on the opposite side of the coin. Where I am located it suppose to be 43C tomorrow. No need to use electricity to cook, I can fry eggs on top of the paint lids.

Hi Brad hahaha!
Thank you for warming me up, it worked :D

It's 'only' -19C right now, better than -35C.
If there were any paint drops on that lid, you must have colored eggs :)

Hi Patsy, Thanks for the follow. I just have to agree with MichalB below. Very much done in a short time. I guess it is due to your way of looking at life? "I don't get discouraged easily and I'm not negative, always positive. I have ideas of what I want and once I get started, there is no stopping me"

You are welcome Jan.

I'm still not done and have a long way to go. People look at the Ambassador list and assume we've made it but it's not so.

mjtrusted Premium
I am not sure what the meaning of the Ambassador is. However, it is an accomplishment here at WA according to the rules the administrators have set up for that position.

Anyway, it is an accomplishment here at WA.

Who have made it who hasn't is only from the perspective of the viewer as we have no idea of the final goal for each individual at the Ambassadors list.

You are an inspiration. I have a very similar background and my father too was an entrepreneur. I also started around the time you started but I took a sabbatical for a few months, however, now I'm back on track and would very much like to get this up and running to the point where I can quit my full time job and do this instead, but I think I have a long way to go yet...

Hello Fiona, thank you!

Welcome back, at least you are here and continuing with your website now. It does take quite a while to get going and to the point where we actually get traffic. I'm not there yet with 'outside' organic traffic except for the handful from family or friends.
I have patience knowing it takes months.

We have had so many new things added over the last couple of months. Catching up with those will take a while.

I had a couple of huge setbacks and feel behind but I shouldn't because I couldn't help it.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving your comment, I appreciate it :)

So to generate outside organic traffic are you working Google Plus? Or what are you doing?
Reply
PatsyC Premium
I gave my website address to a few friends, family so those are organic and I'm also on Google+ where I share each published post. Not sure if anyone there has gone to my website.

Hello Patsy!
I wanted to follow you and leave you a nice note here. :) It is unbelievable how stupid some bosses and co-workers can be. I have also escaped that trap and will not return. So good for you to have taken that route!

It can be so helful that you have "inherited" the business thinking as you have watched your parents. You will make it too!

I am grateful for the family experiences and it's too bad I got bullied but, they will get what is coming to them. Actually a few have while I was still there ;)

Yeah, they will get back what they offer to the world. One of my work bullies got fired for some reason or another after I had left that workplace, and I felt kind of good because of that when I heard...
But better things are coming to both of us now! :)

Hi Chris, thank you :)

I wasn't expecting to end up on the Ambassador list. I write blog posts for my issues to help myself while I work on my website, and in turn they have helped many members. This is how I got there.
Once I won't have as many issues (I hope) then I may taper off the list.

It is a Blessing for sure to help this way, I go to live chat when I have time to help out also. I have been helping others since I was little.

You are one for helping out also!
I spent many weeks and nights helping out Mark with his website for issues he was having, and pointing out what he has missing there that he wasn't aware of.

Yesterday I took a peek at his site to see how he was progressing and saw the newer theme. It's in another language and most of it was kind of a mess, so I sent him a PM inquiring what was going on. I saw you had a page or post about yourself and didn't 'get it'. He told me what was going on, so I understood it.

I can't wait to see the final result. I haven't gone back to look again and will when he lets me know it's ready. He knows how much I like his website it's a great niche :)

ChrisScott Premium
Mark is an excellent person with a heart of gold. Yesterday was the first day I had started the web design and Mark's site will be totally unique to the online community as there will not be another website like his in its totality. His website will also flow right due to the proper use of link juice and with his talents will be extremely profitable.

I wish my spirit was always as tender, loving and real as Mark's. He is a giant of a man.

I do not know at what point you saw the website and I should of placed maintenance on it as what you saw was placeholding dummie text and other place holders which has to be used during the creation of the website due to the fact that the client is not there and something has to fill these areas in until he is with me to change things out.

To see a website in the throws of something as difficult as a complete web redesign overhaul is like trying to make since of a beautiful tapestry by looking at the jumbled and tangled multi colored threads of the bottom.

With dummie text and buttons not connected and asking him where to link them it must have been a shock.

Be blessed.
Reply
PatsyC Premium
He sure does have a heart of gold. He works hard and has been on overtime for weeks. He is burned out and needs a break.

I saw the website at the same time it is now yesterday. It's almost 3:30 pm here now. I was just concerned that it was public in that shape although he doesn't have a lot of traffic yet.

I agree, he will be profitable it's a great niche as I mentioned, unique and has so much potential.

Thanks again Chris for your comment on my profile. I apprediate it and am looking forward to seeing how the website looks!

Wow, your Dad still is working his business at 85...that's awesome! Fifty years at it...that's a long time! I bet he does beautiful work in his landscaping projects.

Anyways, I'm sure you'll do fine here, drive and patience are what it it takes! Hope things are going well for you on your journey to success...

Hi , I am just wondering what the purpose of following others and being followed is ? I am totally new to internet money making and marketing , website building etc .
What I do know is I am pretty intelligent , and if help and others really showing me how to do this is available in depth , then I will do what needs to be done .
Please answer the question in the 1st paragraph and share all the helpful info and encouragement you have for me .
Thank you much ,

Hi Brett,

Of course I would have answered your question without you asking. That is why there is a community here. To help.

You don't have to follow anyone, just don't click on 'follow'.
You can try and do this on your own.

You can also just choose those you feel can help you and in turn you can help them if needed.

Following each other helps us learn together.
When I post something the members who follow me get an email. When those I follow post something I get an email. If you see it may be of help then read it. I go through my emails and ONLY keep the ones that will be of help to me as I learn. Also, to reply to comments other members leave on my posts etc.

Once we are finished the lessons, we continue to learn. Not everything is covered in the lessons but the basics needed.
The community is of great help to us because we can all relate with trying this on line business and we help and support each other. We are not alone :)

When I joined I have very little computer skills. I used my laptop to write the odd email to someone or use it to 'Google' what ever I need. That's it.

I built my website from scratch by myself. You can look at it by scrolling down my profile page all the way to the bottom right hand side, where you will see 'Follow Me On'.
I did this o my own and am very proud of myself. Of course I had help along the way.

You can ask for help in the 'search for help here' bar above, use live chat for quick responses also, if you don't find your answer just write a blog post asking it. Also, while doing the lessons at the end of them you will see an area below where you can ask for help with that lesson.

I took detailed notes which really helped a lot especially when you have to do the tasks at the end of each lesson. Step by step, taking my time.

I have written over 100 blog posts for issues I've come across along the way and this way we all learn together. Check them out, you will see what I mean.

This is how I got up to being and Ambassador, by my helpful posts alone. I don't want to be on the Ambassador list, I wasn't expecting to and once I won't need to write as many blog posts, I will eventually fade off there. I am NOT here to help others alone, but to work on my website and have a business.

I have been here for only 5 months and am still learning. Lots of ups and downs, you have to have patience.

You will always be learning, even those who have been here for many, many years are still learning.

At least here at WA, you have everything covered, the best place out there especially having the owners Kyle and Carson who are hands on, you see them helping us out every day! Mainly Kyle while Carson works on the behind the scenes stuff.

It's well worth trying this out.

Hey I was wondering....can you please recommend a good user friendly slider theme? I only need the home page to slide, well fade, actually. Need about 5 pages total... including a Blog page.

Thank you so much, I appreciate it!

PatsyC Premium
Hi Shawna,

I have no idea, I haven't needed the use for one and don't know what it is. Unless you need something like this you wouldn't know. There are so many themes you would have to test a few to see what they have.

The best thing to do for questions like that is enter it in the 'search for help here' field bar at the top of this page.
You can also write a blog post asking, this is a great way to get answers from others who have one.
Also, the 'live chat' is great for quick answers.

You also learn in the lessons on how to find themes. I see you have a badge for lesson 1. There is a lot of information in the lessons that you will need, no matter how much experience you may have. There are several more lessons to go.

When I was searching for my theme at the beginning and found one, after a few weeks it wasn't working for me. I went on a search for a new one and most don't always state what's available in them.

Ambassadors don't know everything, we are all still learning.
It's from experience that we help the best that we can.
I wasn't expecting to become one, I'm still working on my website. It's my helpful blog posts that I write while I work on my website that not only help myself from answered received, but helped many members so far.

I would do a search in the 'search for help here' bar first asking something like 'Are there any user friendly slider themes?'.
If you don't get the answer you want then write a blog post asking the same question.

I find that at times I don't get the answer I need because the members don't know either, so I'm on my own.
I have several blog posts on my profile where I actually solved big issues on my own, I had no choice :)

Thank you very much PatsyC! I appreciate all you shared !! Luckily two other member's said they use the Sydney theme for their slideshows and they both like it. Both they're sites look great so that is encouraging, and probably they route I will go. I love your idea for posting a blog when you have a question. I'll look forward to seeing you and chatting with you in the future! Take care! :)

Hi John, thanks for following me.

I have been here for 4.5 months and joined with very little computer skills. As I work on my website I write blog posts for help with issues I get along the way. Doing this has helped other members and landed me a spot as an Ambassador, something I wasn't expecting.

I agree, the internet is a big world and we can have part of it. Thinking positive and working hard will take us to goals we have set.

Hi Jonathan, it's funny you mention 'Sudbury Saturday Night' I haven't heard that in ages.

Thanks, it's sharing my issues and resolved ones also that I write blog posts about. This is how I got to where I am now. I have helped older along with newer members along the way.
I wasn't expecting to become an Ambassador at all.

My dad will be 86 in November and he is currently cutting stone on Manitoulin Island for a job he is working on in Sudbury where my parents reside.

I have been here for about 4.5 months so my website is fairly new. I had taken an unexpected personal break for about 3 weeks and feel behind but it's all good.

You can take a look at my posts to the right of my profile to see if there are any that can help you now or in the future.

Thanks for the follow, I am now following you back!

Hey there, Patsy!!! I was going to follow you after I read your comment, but you beat me to it!

How the heck did you get Top 50 when you just joined in March of 2017!!! I've noticed a lot of people starting this year are leaping their way to the top like crazy! You're keeping us ole timmers on our toes, lol.

Hi Veronica, thank you for following me back!

Don't think I'm not almost an old timer myself ;) my youth is in the 'genes' Haha.

Of course I beat you to it, I saw how helpful you were in the blog post. You sound like myself...helpful and that's how I got to the rank I'm at now. I wasn't expecting that though. It was gradual.

It looks like we started at the same time and I'm always helping when I can. I also write blog posts with experiences I've had here, with difficult things and am proud to say I have helped many.

A couple of those leaping to the top like crazy have 'their' way of doing that, it's far from how helping others as I am is how I got there. I'm not really interested in becoming an Ambassador since it will only be 3 months on June 8th since I joined. I'm still learning :)

Looking forward to seeing you in other blog posts and helping each other and ..others out :)

Good evening Patsy,

That story about your father I find fascinating, he should be on my website about mother earth. So nice both your parents are still alive. My father died in 1986 and my mother in 1996, much too early and I still miss them.If ever you need a good source for writing have a look at my second post on my profile, the one about the Spanish priest and the world library.
Thank you for the follow and good luck,

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.

Hey! Was the decision to upgrade to premium a tough call for you?

If you have any doubts about that being wrong, forget about it! Once you make this your daily habit, it will become addicting.

Get involved, introduce yourself in chat and follow some people and make it happen today...everyday!

Hi Kyle thanks. Things are going well so far. I'm on my website training and niche ideas right now.
I do have a couple of ideas for my niche, purses for one and dating sites. I have a couple of domain choices, one for the purses idea and website name for the purses to start with anyway. I chose them while still a new member and not upgraded yet. So now I need to change the purse domain and remove the siterubix from it.

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

Hi Kyle,

So purses are not specific enough?

I want to help people that: are looking for quality purses.

My specific audience are women.

During a video on niches, you used the example of baby clothing as being a niche. The target audience are parents.

Am I understanding this properly?
I wanted to 'start' with purses and I did go onto Amazon's site under categories and searched as you suggested in the video. I would like bigger ticket items but don't have enough knowledge like vehicles or work out equipment.

Thanks for your help!! I want to start this off right :)

Sure, you could narrow it down a bit. High End Purses could be good. You could be the Purse go to site over time, but I would start a bit more narrow with your niche. This doesn't mean that your website/domain and brand could be broader though.

When you choose a domain, you are going to want to choose something that is "brandable" versus something that has keywords within it. The reason this is the case is because as you build out your website, you can target as many keywords as you like within the content (that is how you will rank).

I have created a discussion here outlining the process and what to look for when choosing a domain name: This should help you out here and if you ever want to run any domains by me, simply let me know and I will give you some feedback.

PS. You can host up to 25 of your own domains here within the Premium membership on our state of the art hosting platform. :)

Hi Kyle! thanks for your reply I can't imagine how busy you must be. Since your last message, I continued my lessons and chose a domain...and am on lesson #7.

I read the link you provided on choosing a good domain name thanks for that...and according to the 3 steps, my domain looks fine.

1) My domain sounds brandable because I do like it.
2) It is .com without any dashes '-'.
3) I had to use .siterubix.com since I was not a Premium member then. The link mentioned buying it from SiteDomain.

My domain name is:
yourpursesource.siterubix.com

My website name is:
Your Purse Source

To me it does sound like the 'go to' site (over time) because I have 'your' and 'source' in it. Your suggestion High End Purses is great.

I made a list of over 50 keywords for phrases and adding more.

How long do I keep .siterubix.com I remember in SiteRubix website page, Site Manager/access website there is a 'move' button to move my current domain to my newly owned one..when I find the link to get it.

What do you think of my domain name :)

Thank you for taking the time to help me along the way I really appreciate it.

Yeah, that is fine, but I was referring to your OWN domain if you ever do decide to buy that. Your existing free website URL definitely sounds just fine. ;)

I don't have to wait until after the Get Started lessons are finished to buy my own? I'm just starting Lesson 8 so I don't have any content.

Thanks for taking the time to help me out :)
