About QLD
Joined July 2019
Good day one and all,

I am an Australian, born in Far North Queensland, in the high country at the base of the Cape York Peninsula.

Happily married for many years, to Greta, who comes from Western New South Wales – both country kids. We are family people with children, grandchildren, siblings and other relatives scattered about city and country. Not an uncommon story around here.

Retired now, in good health, we live near older family members, in Albury Wodonga, twin towns in country Victoria, straddling the Murray River, the interstate border between Victoria and NSW.

In my working life I was an executive in the government business and corporate worlds, mainly involved with the financing, accounting and regulatory sides of international telecommunications systems and traffic between nations.

The Global Financial Crisis in 2007/8 and thereafter, a fun game played by the banks, savaged our retirement funds to the extent that some additional income from somewhere would be right handy any time soon.

Wealthy Affiliate has been a welcome find. First impression of the service being offered is quite stunning, in fact a little overwhelming in its completeness in every sense – knowledge, training, business support and technical facilities,

The personal attention and interest offered by founders, Kyle and Carson, and our recruiter, Anis, are much appreciated.

While I have little experience in internet marketing, I do like researching and writing and expect that will help things along.

Summing up, I am looking forward to learning much, enjoying the camaraderie of such a positive group and doing anything that I can to help fellow travellers. Some extra income down the track, of which I am confident, won’t go amiss, either.

Wishing you all success,

Don

Welcome to premium!

So happy that you have decided to take this step in your journey towards achieving your dreams. You will gain so much from being here.

The training here is great and you should follow it to the letter.

The community here is the very best I have personally encountered. (and I have tried a few)
It is NOT a race, if you treat it as one, then you will only cheat yourself. I hope to bump into you along your path.

Once again, welcome aboard!! Blessings ~ Frank & Tina (free4life)

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Premium!

Glad that you joined us.

Wealthy Affiliate is an amazing environment to learn and apply our skills towards creating an online business. I tried to do this alone before and was completely lost.

Now I know why.

There are so many tricks of the trade and it saves so much time having it all laid out clearly in its training programs.

Keep following the training and exercises every day. Give it a year to see significant results. You'll be a happy camper by then. We all make progress at different rates and it is possible to see meaningful results in 4-6 months. Google cannot be rushed.

Google rewards people with websites that provide value to their visitors. It helps to boost their ad revenue of course! And that helps your websites get high rankings. But it takes time to build credibility. Once they realize your site is an authority site, good things will happen faster.

When you get stuck, and you will, just ask for help in the discussion area located below each lesson. Scroll down to find it. Another member who has the answer will get back to you promptly.

In the meantime have fun with the program. Much success to you.

Cheers!

Edwin

Hi Donald

It's me, Anis, here again. I want to drop by personally because I just saw you updated your profile.

I'm really excited for you as you've found this awesome community.

Personally, I joined WA when I was 22 and I’m now earning 4-figure passive income per month and achieved financial independence at 25, all thanks to Wealthy Affiliate.

So, you’ve definitely come to the right place to learn and earn from affiliate marketing.

I'm sure you can turn your passion into a thriving online business with the help of Wealthy Affiliate. From there, you can build your own passive income streams.

I must say building a passive income stream is not easy though. A lot of time and hard work are involved. But all I could say is that the reward and benefits are definitely worth the hustle.

For now, follow closely with the training here: You'll get more detailed guidance on how to define your niche and start building your website.

Just to remind you that you're not alone here. The whole community and I are here to help.

Feel free to ask whenever you need.

I wish you all the best and let's keep in touch, alright?

Cheers

Anis

I hope you are enjoying your experience thus far at Wealthy Affiliate and have been able to familiarize with the community (and work through some of the training).

Today I am reaching out to offer my help. If you have any questions about anything so far, please do let me know and I will be more than happy to give you a hand/guidance.

Secondly, I want to mention a bonus that I am going to be sending you if you do decide to upgrade to the world class, Premium membership. If you join within the next 3 days (before the timer runs out), I am going to be sending the 7 Factor Secret Sauce video that was a special bonus that was offered during Black Friday only (and has never been offered since). I will instantly send this to your private inbox here in Wealthy Affiliate when you go Premium.

This bonus is over 1.5 hours of training based on experiences of Kyle, a 17 year affiliate marketing "veteran", that is literally going to break down WHY people are succeed online, WHY people are failing, and what YOU can be doing to ensure your success online.

Not only that, when you join Premium you are going to get the KEY to the community/platform here at WA, a platform that is by far the best in the industry and one evolves almost daily. It is an incredible place to make your home and set-up and run your online businesses from.

If you want to upgrade, you can do so here:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/upgrade

But no pressure here. Continue working through the training, taking action, and let me know if you have any questions or need any help at all as you do continue to move forward Donald. :)

Hi Donald,

Hope you have enjoyed your first 24 hours here at WA, I wanted to pop by today and just give you a bit of direction here if you are feeling the slightest bit stuck.

There is “core” training at Wealthy Affiliate, which is called the Online Entrepreneur Certification. This is a very comprehensive course and is going to walk you through the process of building a business online.

By lesson 4 of this training you are going to understand the process of building a business online, you are going to have a direction chosen for your business, and you are going to have your very own niche website up and running.

A lot of the time I see people that are shy to “take action” simply because they worry they might do something wrong. I can assure you that there are no major mistakes that you can make, and you have help every step of the way if you ever need a hand with anything!

Here is a link to the course: (or click “Training” in the main menu, and choose the “Getting Started” course)

So, get rolling through the training, you will see your business take shape very quickly. And if you ever need a hand with anything at all ask for help... simply click "Reply" to this comment, and leave your reply below. I will be here to help you out along with many other experts that are available 24/7 within the community.

As a new member here, you should check out the Online Entrepreneur Certification getting started course (Level 1). This is a task based course that will get you taking action on daily tasks that will lead to you building web assets. Here is the link that you will see within your main menu labeled "Get Started Here". HOW TO CLAIM YOUR BONUS
-----------------------------------------------

If you join Premium within the first 7 days, here are some bonuses that I am going to be giving you:

(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there.
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus"

But only if you join in your first 7 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways Donald, 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!

Your friend,

Kyle

Just wanted to pop by and say hi. I realize you are probably just get stepping into the platform & community here at Wealthy Affiliate, but I wanted to let you know that I am here to help you out if you ever need anything.

My immediate recommendation for you (outside of asking for help when you need it), is to start moving through the training under the “Training” menu. You will want to go into the Get Started Here” course.

If you are looking to create a business online and do so within any niche, you are in the right place!

Chat soon Donald!
