About PatsyC
Joined March 2017
Hello everyone, 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 85 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 :)

Hello Patsy and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined in March you will have come to realize that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck 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 return the favour.
Enjoy your day.

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,

Regards, Taetske

I am proud of both my parents and am Blessed to still have them. Both are 85 years old. Sorry to hear about the passing of your's and it was way too soon!

I will read your second post, thanks for bringing it to my attention.

You are welcome, and thanks for following me also.

Hello Patsy,♫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

Hi there fellow Canadian!

Welcome to WA! I am sure that you will love it here. There is a great community waiting to help you out on your path to success. That said, remember to give yourself time to learn. This isn't a get-rich-quick deal (because those don't really exist...) but you will find everything you need to build a lasting, successful online business if you are willing to work hard and follow the lessons. It certainly sounds from your profile that you've got a great attitude.

I wish you the best of luck going forward!

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!

I'll be looking forward to reading about your progress and success stories soon.

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! :)

PatsyC Premium
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.

Kyle Premium
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. :)
Reply
PatsyC Premium
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 :)

Kyle Premium
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. :)

PatsyC Premium
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.
Reply
Kyle Premium
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. ;)

PatsyC Premium
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 :)

No, you don't. You could buy a domain right away if you wanted and as a Premium member you can host up to 25 of your own domains. :)
