About PaulaKeen
Joined April 2017
Just a quick little bio to scoop up some experience.

I have been unemployed for a while and looking for something I could do from my home for a few years now. I found WA just a couple of weeks ago and I have been so elated about such an opportunity. I spent a few years in the insurance industry, being a contracted agent. Glad to be out! Most of my life, I have been a very busy, stay at home mom. Divorced after 20 years, and feeling like things are now starting to shine through. Feeling very blessed :o)

Paula, I hope you are doing well with WA. What is your web site. Mine is my personal site where I tell about me, my business and my affiliate marketing hobby that I hope someday will be my job. Visit raybrannum.com

Post your URL and I will visit your site. Google will like that.

BTW what part of the world do you live in? I live in Alabama, USA.

Decided to become Premium today! I am an older person. I was writing or rather composing my Website and did like to place a banner on it/them! You have so many people telling you how to do it, but so often -- probably in my case -- there is always something missing! I appreciate in the manner you did explain it--Very Good!
What about the "Download" button, what does that do instead of the HTML code? How do I eliminate all the Sidebar info?
Anyway thanks a lot again and good luck!

Hi George. I'm super happy you found the banner training to be a great experience for you!!

I believe the download is a direct link to WA. This just means you link straight from WA to your site. No adding banners or whatever. I think anyway. I don't really use that feature, so you may double check with someone like Loes.

For the sidebar, I haven't did any changes to mine for quite sometime, so I'd need to go into it and look. I'll try to get around to doing that for you later this eve. However, if you contact Loes before I get back to you, go ahead and ask her to guide you through that.

Again, I'm happy to know you were able to use my training and that you found it beneficial.

Goodluck with your online business and welcome aboard. Congrats on going premium. I think you're going to be happy here. The training is endless and there are a lot of wonderful people. :o)

Paula, I followed Jay on Facebook the other day and found out you are his mum. So I came to read about you.

Do you know you can list your website and social media links here on your Profile page. This means people can visit you by just clicking on whatever site they want to view. It certainly makes visiting a lot easier.

Now if you haven't covered this in your lessons yet here is how to do this.

On your profile page, on the right hand side, go to the bottom to where it says 'Follow me on'. Click on this and hey presto you can add your links. Now on my page I can see that 7 can be entered but I don't know if this expands as you fill each in. You two have more than this so you might have to select the shortest straw to see which ones can be added.

Or Jay could get his own WA membership!

Anyway, for Jay, I used to play in our senior high orchestra. I played the trumpet. It's been so long since then that I can't even get a farting sound on one anymore! My pucker up has gone and went.

So Paula, now I am going to keep in touch with you.

Ciao
Helen

Hi Helen and thank you so much for following Jay (Jillian) on her facebook page! It's ok that it seemed she was a he, but I do not like us using the social media, especially her since she is still just reaching age enough to maybe start driving (16). So, she shortened her name to just Jay, a phonetic sound of the letter J. :)

I did not know about the place to put the media, so THANK YOU! I will get those in here shortly!

I would LOVE for you to keep in touch. WA is a wonderful community, and an exciting adventure.

I look forward to building an online friendship with you and am excited to learn together and share our knowledge.

Thank you once again!

Thank you Paula for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. As a Premium Member you are probably aware of the AWESOME and FREE WA Keyword Tool we have unlimited access to.

This is the keyword research tool I have used exclusively after I became a Premium member 3+ years ago and it has helped me many times to find awesome keywords that have led to Google page 1 rankings.

I created very popular WA Training Tutorials, Part 1 and Part 2, on how to use the WA Keyword Tool for keyword research. If you have not seen it and would like to learn how simple it is to use and a little about keywords, click the below link.

PaulaKeen Premium
Yes! I will definitely look into those tutorials! I was saying last night I had some issues with it, as it was not wanting to save my list or to my list I had made, and at times, my list would completely disappear making me have to start over, lol. It was rather frustrating. I did message Kyle about it so that he was aware of problems. Also, I've been having problems with the WA site not wanting to function. I have been having to Recover the page several times through out my time here. My other windows aren't doing that. Perhaps it's due to a lot of traffic on WA, lol. It's so exciting, I can see why EVERYONE would want to be here. Anyway, thanks so much for sharing your tutorial links! I am certain they are going to be powerful for my future here!!! Bless you and have a great day today!

Those problems you have had seem kind of odd. Perhaps it is the internet browser you are using.

Hello Paula, How are you enjoying WA? The training here is awesome, and so is the community. The reason I follow people is for the learning, everyone here has their own way of doing things and everyone has great ideas and its nice to get other peoples input. hank you for the follow and have a great week.

Thank you so much Lori! I'm still trying to figure out how to get the quickest answers to questions. I'm only 9 days into WA and I'm trying to put this site together. It seems at times the lessons are leaving out steps and its confusing! I'm thinking the bootcamp lessons might be more thorough then the Certification Courses. What do you think?
Reply
loriC1 Premium
I started with the Certification and I really like it, I don't know much about the Bootcamp. I have been here over a month and still putting my site together but I'm taking my time, its almost done. Sometimes your questions can get answered quicker if you go to the chat. I do know that everything comes together by the time your done with the certification. I hope this helps with a few of your questions.
Reply
PaulaKeen Premium
Thanks once again Lori. It does help. A concern that I do have is when you're doing the certification and you're having to check off those boxes, you just can't check it if you don't have any idea what or how to do what the task is. I've kind of just figure it out on my own I think. I have asked in the live chat, and do get answers sometimes, but not always. I am enjoying it too! I'm definitely not going to let it get me down, lol. I'll move along and like you said, it does all work out and I'm convinced of that. Thanks again.

Don't forget you can go back over the materials as often as you like, and also the search bar at the top, type in your question and most of the time you find answers. And you are welcome, always think POSITIVE THOUGHTS.

Hello Paula,♫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

Hey Paula,

This is Mike again from http://AffiliateMarketerTraining.com and I have a confession to make. Did you know you clicked on an affiliate link on my site which led you here to Wealthy Affiliate?

First of all, I would like to THANK YOU for signing up using my affiliate link. Now that you're all signed up here, anything you purchase means I will receive a commission and it doesn't cost you anything extra. I just can't tell you how thankful I am that people such as yourself help me to earn a living online. The main goal here at Wealthy Affiliate is to make sure YOU are able to earn a living online too!

Now that you've been signed up here at Wealthy Affiliate for a few days, I'm just wondering how things are going? Do you feel the training is helping you out? Or maybe you feel totally overwhelmed at the moment?

Whatever the case may be, I just want to let you know that I'm here to help in any way I can. You did me a huge favor by clicking on my affiliate link and trusting my recommendation of Wealthy Affiliate, so now I am more than happy to return the favor.

If you'd like to get in touch, simply send me a private message and I'll return as soon as I can!

Best Regards,

Mike Rogers

Thank you Mike! I greatly appreciate it. I'm still humming along in the training. I'm not sure about the niche, although now after going through Jaaxy, it looks to be a really nice idea. I guess we will see. Not sure if I will make the 7 day deadline for premium membership, but I'm thinking I will sign up as quick as the funds are available in my budget. It's a chunk when you're a single, unemployed parent who can't seem to get a break, lol. BUT... I'm a believer, so ... Enough said! :o) Thanks so much again for your support and I sure do look forward to working with you and learning lots of great things from you.

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! :)

Hi Kyle and thanks lots for the helping hand! I have thought of a few niches that interest me and that I have currently been exploring for my own benefits in life. We will see how it turns out! :o) Thanks again.

Excellent to hear, off and running.

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. :)

Thank you Kyle. I just finished lesson 4 where I built the website which was almost unbelievable! I named it gardenofvegan. I figured this way, if I got tired of doing one specific promo, I could change it or do a few different ones at the same time. Not sure because I've never done this before, haha. Anyway, I see it as a garden or variety and couldn't narrow down to one specific! I am NOT a vegan, but have been researching it for a while and I've been working on things in my personal life that are directed toward that as a goal for myself and family. So why not? Right? Thanks again for your support.

Sure, that could work and I think it is very brandable. You just don't want to be too broad with the direction of your website or you are going to be left with a sensation of being overwhelmed.
