About RAFStuart
Joined April 2018
Having spent twenty four years in the Royal Air Force, as a technician, instructor and course designer, I then embarked on a number of occupations, including training, security, management and course design.

Although retired I am currently involved in the Royal British Legion as a member of the Membership Council, this voluntary post I will be stepping down from next year.

Do not wish to become idle, have had my bank account emptied by a scammer, so need to earn some cash. Have two websites but need training to sort them out.

Hi Edwin,

so the journey has BEGUN for you in April.
Sure hope you do well.
I know the feeling when scammers take your money...happened to me back in Miami, when this asshole not only scammed me, but he also wasted mu TIME!
Millions were LOST and many years!

Hope you got the right niche...

Hello Daniel ... thank you for the follow. To tell you the truth I thought I was already following you. I am now. We've interacted on several threads. For instance, I know you and your wife trade off doing the cooking, which often includes treats that could only be English.

With two websites already up you should hit the bricks running here at WA. Don't get me wrong. The learning curve is steep and will take all the patience, persistence, and dedication you can muster. But if you persevere you will make it happen.

I wish you the best on your WA journey.

Hi Stuart,
Are you doing much better here at Wealthy Affiliate? Building a website is hard for me because of my disability

I had dealings, with scammers already and it was not nice. They are so deceitful. They offer you one thing and when you sign up it's another thing( filling their pockets)

Personally, I need to earn money now. BUT, I am told that it will take much much much longer. :=)

By the way, thanks for the follow. I will do likewise.

Your friend,

Hi, Stuart, thanks for the follow, returned, and welcome to the WA community where you'll find all the training you need to sort out your websites.

Sorry to hear you'd been scammed, you're certainly not the first, and, unfortunately, you certainly won't be the last. Until people realize if something looks too good to be true, then it probably is, the scammers, being the scum that they are, will enjoy their ill-gotten gains at the expense of vulnerable people.

Hi RAFStuart, your in the right place to help develope those Web sites there is a world of experience here. I was sorry to hear about you being scammed, an all to often occurrence in this day and age but as you design courses a great idea might to use that experience to help others by creating a page or site that shows them how to avoid the same . It's not a new idea but scam techniques evolve like all other forms of crime so any new information would be welcomed by all. Good luck and thanks for the follow. Dave

Hi I think once you have one successful website then it will be a lot easier to the start adding and creating more niches, but if you already have experience which it sounds like you have it you are already ranked high in Google.
You will build yourself successful businesses as it sounds like you have the right attitude to make it happen.
Good luck!!

Welcome to the WA Community, and sorry to hear about your hard life lessons in reference to being Scammed. (I was also) but the lesson here is that life is a hard edge instructor, it gives you the exam FIRST then the lesson.

This platform is a wonderful place to be, just do the lessons, learn the skills and slowly but surely you world will expand and the money will follow.

Hold fast, keep faith and will look forward to your success.

Hello RAFStuart!
Yes I would say it wouldn't hurt to try both at the same time, it would leave you to figure out which of the two websites you feel most comfortable with.

If you're good at finding niches that are a great fit for you then you probably wouldn't mind working on two sites at the same time!

I personally agree with the majority of our fellow Wealthy Affiliate Family members. That it's easier to work with one at a time so that it could be easier to breeze through the training.

The more content that you have on any one website, the more it's easier for you to get ranked on the first page of Google.

May your business continue to flourish!

Hi Stuart, I see you were in the RAF. My father in law was in the RAF for a number of years. He was a test pilot. He flew a number of planes but I believe his favourite was the Vulcan. Last year my family and I went to visit the museum in Collindale and it was amazing. Anyway I just thought I’d say hello and share that with you :)
I hope you’re doing well here at WA.

Visited your site and find that you have really put some work and thought into it. I tried to leave a comment twice and the comment was rejected twice for an invalid email address. My email is rdb@mindspring.com which I have used for over 20 years.

Your site is perfect for promoting Dr. Al Sears for whom I am an affiliate. He wrote a book on non cardio exercise and sells all kinds of natural health supplements. Visit my site trulygoodlife.com and follow my link to him. You can join free. Like WA I would get credit for the referral. If you buy something, or become an affiliate and sell something I would make a child commission. You would do the same based on referrals.


At 86 I take his supplements an it really helps my energy level and mental acuity.

Keep up the good work. You are really offering good help to your fellowman. WA is the greatest.

Hi Edwin,
Thanks for the follow. I can relate to scammers for sure! I was so mad I started my site to post and alert others about them as much as I can! And I found a lot of other people got scammed as well, and helped a few get some of their money back! Sometimes, sadly there is nothing you can do. I can tell you, there are many, many people who lose money to those thieves everyday!

Vibrant Web got me! People who worked there, said they employ sales people to just keep the scam going. They sell you a site, but it is the worst deal, like a lease, and they force people to send more and more money, because they won't let the site function right! You never even own the site!!
They turn off more and more functions inside the site, telling you that you need to send more money to fix it...they have millions going through the company every month! It's tragic...like a business with a poor product, it's basically legal!
I have people constantly leaving comments on my site about Vibrant Web! Some send them $20,000 or more hoping to get a nice site...they never do! Sad!

Hi Stuart, So sad to hear what happened to you being scammed like that and its great to see you are still fired up and raring to go. Although it my awards indicate that I am on level 2, I have actually started level 3 because Google has left me hanging with the typical It may take a few days to hear from us.. I've been waiting over a month now and haven't been accepted or rejected for their adwords program, so I suspect they have passed me by.

Hi Stuart,
I spent two years in the RAF, learning Czech and listening to the Czechs in their army on earphones (it was the time of the Cold War (which fortunately did not become Hot). I then had a good working life, living in Greece, Lebanon, Philippines, France (selling Chrysler cars and trucks) and South Korea (selling heavy machinery), but now I am 80 and my pension is too small. I have been trying to find some way of earning more money and now I have started as an affiliate marketer, which is easy and very cheap to do, once you have created a website. You also can try it.

I got conned in an energy conservation business by a conman from South Dakota back in 2006. Got into bad debts running into several hundred thousands till today.

That's what happens when we trust people too much especially in the business world. I look forward to great breakthroughs for us here at WA.

Since you joined and with your previous online experience you may have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

If so you must keep up with the training and keep referring to it but if you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 400+ blogs I have published within WA.

You can always get in touch with me a PM as well.

No probs Edwin and if/when you read my blogs make sure you choose the ones that will help you in conjunction with whatever training you are currently taking.

You may not be aware of this but it’s a good idea (only if you want to) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.
Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing else.
But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.

Both of you gentlemen are British RAF veterans. I commend you for your many years of military service. As I mentioned to Rich, many years ago, I served in the U.S. Naval Air Reserve. I was an aircrew member on an antisubmarine helicopter who operated and maintained the sonar equipment aboard the aircraft.

I see that you and I joined WA in April. I'm looking forward to networking with you, Rich, and many others in the WA community as we all travel along the road to success with this new venture. I'm looking forward to it. Going forward, please let me know if there is anything I can do to assist you.

Hi, Stuart.
Paul Mindra here from Ontario, Canada.

Thank you for inviting me to be a part of your network. I graciously accept by following you back.

Welcome to the Wealthy Affiliate Community. I am very pleased to make your acquaintance.

I have been here since May 2016 and the environment is 'Safe.'

Scammers and Spammers get weeded out almost immediately.
I, too have been burned in the past. Sorry to hear of your loss. Sometimes, we have to learn the hard way.

RAF...very impressive career.

I am a former Professional Chef of almost 35 years. Debilitating auto immune issues have led to the Wealthy Affiliate Open Education Project.

Get settled in, do not rush and most importantly, do not ever hesitate to 'reach out.' You can and will achieve everything that you want. Just lay out a 'Plan' and follow the directives offered by the founders.

The 'Private Messaging' system is also available to you here. This is good when you want to direct something individually and not directed to the entire community as a whole.

Have some fun learning, Stuart.

We learn by doing (my school motto) 'Faciendo Discimus.'

Here at WA, we first 'Learn' and then remove the 'L.'

It's all good here, Stuart.

Stay in touch.

Kindest regards,

Paul.

Hi Stuart,

24 years is a large part of your life and that time will have been challenging and rewarding and full of excellent life experieinces. I know this as I also served 24 years in the RAF and for the most part loved it. I too was a technician (airframe) but I am now trying out civvy life and starting to dabble with an online career.

All the best,
Scott

Hi Scott,

Welcome to WA, have dabbled in many bits and pieces, but this does seem to be the real deal. For my sins I was an Armourer, or as they liked to call us a weapons technician. Also an ex-Halton Brat. Have followed you.

Best wishes

Stuart

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! :)

Many thanks,
Have had a few failed ideas in the post so do have a niche or two tucked away, but will bear you kindness in mind when I get stuck.
