Hey guys,

I thought I'd update you with my progress here at WA. I joined nearly a year ago and now, by following the training and making a few 'tweaks' here and there to suit my lifestyle and skills, I'm making more than the standard full time wage with my internet marketing businesses.

I knew it was possible and after a lot of hard work, research and experimenting, and now I've finally managed to see the rewards come flowing in. I can't tell you how much of a relief it is to be able to work from anywhere that there is an internet connection. This has made it possible for me to work from home, in cafe's, spend quality time with my family and friends and take time out for me whenever I need it.

I want everyone to know that it is possible to do this. I know there are some people that are struggling to making a living online. I would say to them that they need to persist and keep on learning because the information is here in WA and YOU CAN DO IT if you take your time and really put everything being taught here into practice.

I know it can be hard when you're desperate to make cash but I encourage you strongly - if you are not yet making money from your sites - take your time and keep on persisting.

I hope this hits the spot for you and gives you the knowledge that it's possible and you should never give up if it is important to you. You can make it work.

One last piece of advice - be of value. The exchange of money relies on it. You wouldn't hand over your money to someone who just asks for it without giving you value in return. So when you are setting up a site or service of some kind, bring value to what you do. It really makes the world of difference.

Cheers,

Peter

Hi Guys!

I'm relatively new to internet marketing. I have been a professional musician for 25 years based in Melbourne Australia and as rewarding as certain parts of my profession can be, I am wanting financial freedom so I can pursue my own artistic projects as a musician.

As stated I am relatively new to internet marketing. I guess it started about two years ago when I was working a full time job at a juice bar in the world famous Queen Victoria Markets. Starting at 5am every morning until 4pm lifting heavy boxes, doing food preparation and serving customers and then going on to play 2 or 3 gigs that night which meant that I was getting home between 1-2am. Needless to say, I was burning out! I found myself working to live in the city to work to live in the city to work,etc...

That's when I decided I needed to find something else to do. So I did the usual thing of "How to Make Money Online" and found some very interesting stuff. And yes, I did fall into the traps! All the way from Binary Options to systems that showed great ideas but without the relevant information to put it all together. Needless to say as I'm sure you'll all understand, it was time consuming and EXPENSIVE!! Also probably needless to say I did a lot of research into the many facets of internet marketing with nothing to show for it (except boring friends and family with "Hey, I found this new thing..."

So I decided to give up. My health was suffering from working so hard and I literally burned out making it impossible to work or play music. This is an extremely hard place to find yourself. But with the help of my family and friends I managed to take a bit of time out and recover (still not 100% but working on it).

So... Two years later and I have started playing gigs again. Mind you, as much fun as it can be, it doesn't pay the rent. So I got another day job and have found myself back at square one thinking that there's got to be a better way to make a comfortable living.

I have a few plans for online business involving music therapy and am looking for the foundation to help me build this business. I am also interested to see what else is available in the way of my other interests.

I love cooking (and eating!) and because of the recent health issues have come across a massive amount of great options for creating delicious healthy menus that actually taste great. I've got to say it was a great surprise to me because I know how to make cheap comfort food well but I don't think it does a great deal of good to you in the long run. So I might consider something in that field.

As far as family and friends go, I've always been known as the rock. I love to help people in any which way that I can whether it be talking out problems and finding actionable solutions all the way to lifting fridges on moving day! I also love playing billiards, snooker and pool!

Anyway, after the long rant, I'm looking forward to meeting you all and looking forward to financial freedom so I can do all the things I've always wanted to do like travel the world, meet my favorite musicians, eat in all the great restaurants, lounge on beaches and see the great landmarks!

Thanks for reading!

Peter

Thanks for the follow Peter!

I'm stoked to see what you come up with as I am curious about what works for different people's approaches and writing styles. Eventually I'd like to cover a broad spectrum, if I ever get my first niche off the ground, lol.

Here's to infinite success, ever flowing content, and the multitude of those with like minds and matching fire beneath their perch.

Enjoy your Sunday!

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,

Thanks for the follow up. I have decided to go with musical accessories as a niche. I've been a professional musician for years so it makes sense for me to start out with this as a niche as I know how important it is for my offline network to have these products as well as knowing quite a few experts in the field that can help with the content.

And I have to say that even with the reasonable amount of research I've done on internet marketing before joining Wealthy Affiliate, this platform is above and beyond all expectations by far. I had looked at marketing other niches for the sake of making some money before but didn't realize that I could really look into something I'm very passionate about. The key thing that has stood out to me today is to search "passion + affiliate program". Absolutely brilliant. This one step has opened so many doors and ideas that I'm now really excited about building my own empire!

So much appreciation to you and Carson,

Peter

Excellent Peter, the only thing I might suggest is focusing on ONE type of accessory or instrument when starting out. When you mean accessories, what specifically are you talking about?
Reply
PeterK77 Premium
I was thinking of a variety of things like guitar and bass strings, picks, capos, drum sticks and skins, reeds, microphones, etc, but am definitely happy to heed your advice and narrow it down to tie it all together. I have so many professional musician friends that I can interview for content as in top 10 dos and don'ts, as well as my own experience in live situations as well as session recording situations which I guess could lead to product reviews and so on. Do you think I'm on the right track?

That is a bit broad, you maybe should start with String instruments or something. Then diversify as you feel that you have tapped that out (even though there will be 10,000's of things you can talk about in that space alone!)
Reply
PeterK77 Premium
So do you mean focus on one instrument and the accessories that go with it? e.g. bass guitars, strings, pick ups, picks etc, or focus on different string instruments like guitars, basses, banjos, violins, etc?

Thanks for your help and advice. Sincerely appreciated.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, exactly. I would anyways, start with one and then diversify down the road. Don't try to cover too much at once or you will be overwhelmed.

Cool. Thanks for the advice. Sorry for the late reply. I've been waiting for the internet to be connected at my home and had the terrible news that the main provider here in Australia didn't have a port available so I had to go with someone else which seems to be taking AGES. Especially as I can't wait to get stuck right into the course. It should be connected on Wednesday.

Again I have to say much appreciation to you. You are doing a magnificent job.

Cheers,

Peter

Hello Peter,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made 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 on the right (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016-2017. See you around, Greetings Loes
