Update 03. July 2018

I thought it's probably time to give an update.

I have indeed found all the knowledge here that I was missing last time.

I've finished my Certification Training, have a pretty good understanding of what's needed to succeed (there are always new things to learn), my website is looking good and getting traffic, and I've made my first earnings.

Once my earnings are consistent, I'll take the next step to the Affiliate Bootcamp. Can't wait!


Update 19. September 2017

I have finished my degree in Psychology and have finally done some more work on my website which has been indexed by Google. Onwards and upwards! :)



Hi there :-)

This is my second attempt at making money online, the first one dating back 9 years. Unfortunately not much support was around at the time. Hopefully I'll find the knowledge and support I need here...

I'm originally from Germany but have been living in Australia for 12 years already. (I only intended to stay for one year, to work and travel.) I'm not going to bore you with the whole story of how I met my now husband, although it's a good story; forces of nature intervened for us to meet. Needless to say we thought it was fate.

Currently I'm studying my last subject for a Bachelor of Social Science (Psychology). I'm not sure whether to continue on with Honours and Masters, but I still have some time to decide. I've also studied some English and Creative Writing subjects and had one of my short stories published.

I'd love for this to work out so I can spend my time travelling with my husband and doing other things I love, like writing and reading and enjoying nature and the outdoors.

We are, currently, traveling in Nevada, on our way to the Pacific Nortwest.

Last year, we did the East Coast from Florida to Upper Manhattan, and into Canada.

We spend months touring sections of the U. S. Both being from California and running businesses for decades, we never got out. So, we are doing it right.

Florida has been our favorite, so far. I like to tell Easterners that California is "The other East Coast”. They laugh.

Hi Petra,

Thank you for following me.

I tried too many years ago in online marketing but they were all scams.

My friend Barry sang in the German Opera years ago and met his wife while singing in Germany. She is living in Australia and to is a famous Opera singer. Anke Hoeppner.

It is great to meet you Petra and I wish you the very best in all aspects of life.

Hi Petra, thanks for the follow, nice to meet you! So how did your study story work out? Did you choose to do Honours? Are you doing Masters? Where did you study? What kinds of blog projects are you developing online? And what is this mad force of nature that brought you and your husband together? So many questions!

Hello Petra, thank you for allowing me to be part of your network. You've certainly come to the right place to learn affiliate marketing. Kyle and Carson have done an amazing job with this program. It's thorough and easy to follow. The greatest thing, in my opinion, is the community. I've never seen so many like minded people who want to see us all succeed. If there is anything I can do to give you a hand, just drop me a line. Good luck, merry Christmas, and I'll see you at the top.

Hello Petra and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing could be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 380+ blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Enjoy your day.

Hi! PetraT,

Welcome to WA and thank you for following me.

In fact, you are already ahead of many others inside WA community because of your prior experience as noted in your profile. So, surely, you will be an important contributing member to help others in question or in a loss.

Here I would like to applaud you for making a right decision to join the right Internet program with unparalleled training and member fellowship and support.

Now you can await the coming of success if persistently taking the right actions as instructed in the WA training course and the help from its members, though hard and tough. In reality, there has been no such a program like WA.

To illustrate what I stated and assured above, welcome to peruse few of my WA posts and some contents in my site, www.ebettercare.com, built with WA's WP platform.

If encountering any questions, just ask the WA members, who will surely and timely lend their helping hands.

Here I wish the best for your success to come,


James

Hello Petra ... thank you for the follow. Even WA has changed over the last 9 years. But one thing remains constant. That is Kyle and Carson's commitment to be the absolute best training platform on the web.

Your creative writing studies and accomplishments will serve you well here WA. As I'm sure you know by now, once you've done the training and set up a site or two it's all about your ability to publish quality content ... and lots of it.

And the coolest thing about it is you can do this work from any where which makes it ideal if you have the traveling bug.

I wish you the best on your WA journey.

Hi Petra, nice to hear from you. I look forward to getting to know you my new WA friend. Sorry about the delay in responding but I am a bit slow at the moment. Trying to do too many things at once.

Another Aussie (import like me).

Now you have your degree how are you doing with your website and social media. Once you have these you might want to think about putting the links here on your profile page.

You do this by going to the right of your profile page, down to the bottom where it says 'Follow me on' and click on it. Put your website URL and any social media URLs you have (and want to add). This way people like me can hop in, visit and leave a comment. This makes it easier for us to follow you as this will be a direct link. And extra traffic is always welcome.

If you have time I would love it if you visited my website and left a comment on a post, any one will do. The site address is fantasy-sci-fi-vision.com

As soon as you have a website up and running let me know so I can return the comment.

Keep working hard, having fun and don’t forget to ask questions.

A very nice boss once told me, ‘Helen, when you ask a silly question everyone else breathes a collective sigh of relief because they don’t have to!’ And that is so true. No question is silly so ask away.

If I can’t help I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Now let us keep in touch.

Ciao
Helen

Great to meet you here, and it sounds like you will be able to have lots of success with this online business. I came here as a result of answering your question on the FB Fan page you have with 3k likes/follows....

I am also a wanderer, started in US/with a foot in Canada, left at 17 for Germany, pretty much overseas since...Now I do business from Germany, Thailand, Dubai, and the Philippines (at the moment)...

Good luck with finishing your degree, that focus (psychology) is something you can use iin your daily life plus for your online business. One of my degree's is in Psych, and I have used it a LOT over the years (to keepo my sanilty?)...

Anyway, have fun and best of luck with your schooling and with standing up your successful online marketing business!

Cheers!

Hi Dave,

Great to meet you and thank you for your input. Kind of doing a bit of a refresher plus learning A LOT of new things. (And then remembered I have this Facebook fan page with those followers/likes and not really doing anything with it.)

I think it's very healthy to at least once in your life have lived in a country where they don't speak your language. Sometimes a bit tough to start with, but so worth it.

Thank you, I've got a bit more than a month left of study to do. The other half of my background is in business, which always helps too. And yes, Psych is very applicable to everything :) Not sure about the keeping me sane part?:)

Thank you, definitely having fun learning and putting it into practice.

And I see you're a Hessian (now) too, so please have an Aebbelwoi for me, too. :)

Good afternoon Petra,

Ain't that something. I was born in Australia but my Dutch parents took me back to Europe when I was 3 years old. I still keep my passport but have not visited my birth country yet.
I do believe in fate, that is how I met my Michael. You can see him on my WA post Welcome Refugees.
I always tell new people I meet here that if you need a good source for writing to have a look at my WA post on the Spanish priest and the world library, you might find it helpful.
Thank you for the follow and good luck.

Hi there, Taetske and nice to meet you!

I've been to the Netherlands quite a few times, as I have some family there too... Went to Amsterdam last year when all the Christmas decorations were still in place, so beautiful.

And I hope one day you'll visit your birth country, it is also very beautiful here :)

Thank you. Yes, I did like that thought. It is so important to look after oneself first. I read your profile description. That would be quite a hard, but rewarding job to do. I'm quite interested in mental health, which I suppose would a big part of an addict's life too.

Mental health is a big part of addiction for sure . Some mental health issues are brought on by addiction and some are masked by it. So important to have a good period of sobriety before doing any diagnostic on ones mental health. Thanks for sharing keep in touch.

Thank you Petra 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 when you have the time.

Hello Petra,♫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

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! :)

Kyle Premium
A niche can honestly be anything, what are you passionate about? What are you interested in?

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. :)

Here is the link that you will see within your main menu labeled "Get Started Here". The bright Green Button HOW TO CLAIM YOUR BONUS
-----------------------------------------------

As promised on my website I would like to invite you to join Premium within the first 7 days to unlock the bonuses: (Don't feel pressured into going premium immediately, unless you want to of course.

But only if you go premium in your first 7 days - this is what I call my "serious action takers" bonus which is not offered to just anyone. Show me you are serious and want the upper-hand on the competition by taking action ).

Anyways, thought I would just introduce myself and if you have any questions going forward, let me know. :) Wonderful to have you as part of the community here at WA!

Look Forward To Talking
