About Ramr50
Joined January 2015
Hello everybody! My name is Ralph Martin, and I am married to my beautiful wife, Julie Martin. I have two children (twins!) They are Tenney and Levi Martin. They are 16 years old. Levi is a football guy in high School, Tenney is the brain child, who excels in everything she does.

My wife and I have been involved in Network Marketing starting back in 2007 and did ok with it. We have had some success and we have experienced losing a bunch of money as well. We have spent unnecessarily on online programs that didn't work, but have learned a lot about what not to do...lol...

We have had some success in marketing affiliate programs in the past mostly in the IM niche. We are also working with a company that sells Medical and Dental plans and hope to use some of the knowledge here to increase our business as well as wanting to learn more about affiliate marketing and blogging.

Julie is a Registered Nurse and I am in the field of Quality Assurance and have been involved with Quality Control and Quality Assurance in the Biotech and chemical manufacturing industries for over 20 years.

Julie and I both love the beach and music (mostly 70's and 80's rock). I play drums and guitar and have been in several different bands and have played drums for several different church worship teams that are more in the Rock and Loud side of the spectrum of worship music. We are hear to learn how to make more money and more consistently than we have in the past. My first goal is to be able to cover my rent from strictly online efforts.

awesome, which route would your recommend to start with?

I started out with y regular niche site then when I got that up and running I started working on my site promoting WA. I like both sides of the field but I concentrate more on my promotional site.
Reply
ramr50 Premium
Great, thanks for such a quick response. Are both sites bringing in revenue for you?
Reply
Biggsta Premium
yes they both are but I'm gaining more with my promotional site. Personally I feel it is easier for me to make money promoting WA.

Ralph, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Ralph.

Thanks Kyle! I definitely promise you I will for sure reach out. I really love this program. I do have a couple of general question for you to see if I am thinking correctly about my goals. I am thinking of building out this authority site and promote the day lights out of the affiliate program and go to Vegas to meet you all. What I want to know is, how realistic is it to think I can build a site for each of my twins to help them with college. They are both 17 and I want to build them each a site based on their interests. I would build it foundationally and then have them go through the training to sustain it. I really want them to learn what it takes to be independent and not have to rely on a J.O.B. if you know what I mean. Also, it is realistic to think I can go full time with this in less than two years. I am thinking two sites for myself. One affiliate site and one non affiliate site. Am I being too unrealistic in my thoughts? Thanks so much for your caring attitude. It is simply awesome!

I would let each of them build their own websites, it can do nothing but benefit them giving them this experience here at Wealthy Affiliate and ultimately could lead to a long term business for each of them.

You will not be able to managed and build out 3 websites at once though, focus on just one Ralph. It is best to have ONE great website than to have 3 mediocre ones.

I know you are going to love bootcamp and we have many members that will be there this year that go their start online through Bootcamp. Pretty awesome stuff and we would love to have you there!

PS. It is totally realistic to be full time with this in less than 2 years if you grind and work your butt off.

Hi Kyle, just wanted to say that I absolutely love the training so far. I have just finished with lesson 6 and am moving to lesson 7. Lesson 6 was the most time consuming so far because of the content task. Would you please take a look at my content and let me know if I am off to a good start? I would really appreciate the feedback. you guys are awesome. I have never belonged to a group like this before. I can see why there is so much success within this community.

Thanks again, Ralph and Julie Martin

Absolutely love your content, you are a natural at creating content and this alone tells me that through time you are going to do very well with this Ralph.

One thing I would recommend is that you create smaller paragraphs within your content. People have a tough time reading large chunks of content (ie, your WA review).

Also, a bit more imagery within your content would be good, but overall you are offer to a wonderful start here with your website. Nicely done!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

My name is Stephanie. I went premium a little over two months ago and have since then built two websites, which you can check out on my profile page. I have moved up in the Ranks to 24, so I am now an Ambassador of Wealth Affiliate. I have over 900 folks following me. Plus, I have made over 12 affiliate sales using my niche website.

You will do great, but you will have to work hard and put in the time needed. Please take a moment and familiarize yourself with the platform and begin the training "Get Started Here" (green button on upper left hand corner).

If you get stuck and have questions, let me know how I can help. Or ask the community at large for some assistance.

Happy you are here!! Welcome to a new chapter towards your personal freedom.

Steph

Hey Ralph and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

My name is Steve and I'm the owner of IveTriedThat. You signed up through me and I thought I'd tell you a little about myself. I joined Wealthy Affiliate back in 2009, over 5 years ago. I was looking to learn how to supplement my income through Internet Marketing and what I've found was so much more.

By 2010, I was working full-time from home. These days, ALL of my income comes from my ventures online. In fact, my wife just recently quit her job to start her own business as well. Internet Marketing and Wealthy Affiliate have provided us with amazing opportunities (we've bought a house, get to travel the world, and best of all, no longer spend time "going to work") and I'm incredibly thankful to the training, tools, and support here that made it all possible. :)

I'd love for you to see the same level of success. So, if you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, do not hesitate to get in touch with me. I am here to help!

To get started, you should add a short description and upload a picture. Wealthy Affiliate is a community and having a profile and a picture will really help get you acquainted here.

Anyways, thought I would just introduce myself. If there's anything I can do for you Ralph, just let me know!

Cheers!

Steve

PS. Hit the reply button and say hi so I know you made it here OK!

Hi Steve, thank you so much for reaching out. I just updated my profile and picture. I hope to have the same type of success as you. My initial goals are to make enough to at least cover rent and a few bills. Then, in time go full time as well. My wife, Julie is a registered Nurse, however, is now on disability, because of some nerve damage she incurred in an operation. We are hoping to supplement the income she was contributing to the family. Again, thanks for reaching out.
