Hello everyone! My friends call me Randy.

My interests include our pets (2 cats and 4 dogs), High School football and playing the video game Assassin's Creed series. I worked in Washington, D. C. for many years as a software developer. Now, I am living life at a slower pace.

My goal is to build a successful internet business and help others along the way.

Randy, nice to meet you my new WA friend.

Cats are me. We did have 4 at one time but are now down to one. Katie is the most disobedient cat in history. She sits on tables, the counter, and rips up paper. But we love her anyway.

Work hard and ask plenty of questions. A former boss of mine once told me 'Helen, when you ask silly questions everyone else breathes a collective sigh of relief'. (Probably so they don't have to look silly too!)

So ask me if you need help and if I can I will answer or if I can't I will try and redirect you to someone who can.

Now we can keep in touch.

Ciao
Helen

Hi Randy, And welcome to WA. I must say, I love cats and I wear a necklace of four cats to prove it. I also love dogs as well but I don't have the room for them as I live in a flat. The pet industry is a good niche for affiliates. This maybe something you could research. WA is an excellent platform for online learning and there is lots of support. I wish you all of the best with your WA progress. Tracey

Look into it, and let you know how it goes. Some animal niches can be very profitable. You have, I am sure, a good insight into animals and their behaviour. So, you maybe to help other animal lovers too. Tracey

Hello Randall and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined and had a look round you will no doubt have come to realise that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck then can I suggest you browse some of the 270+ blogs I have published within WA.

You have decided to follow me so thank you for the follow and I will follow you as well.
Enjoy your day.

Thank you, Robert. Yes, the training curve is steep. I'm just taking one day at a time and making sure I understand what I'm working on. I am asking questions and doing a lot of searching/reading. The blogs and training are awesome! Thanks for the suggestions and your work in doing the blogs.

Hello Randy,♫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 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

ok... questions time..

1) What does SEO stand for?
2) My SEO setting shows "Upgrade to PRO version". Do I need to do anything with this?
3) I saw a post/blog about backing up our websites. Does WA automatically do this, or do we need to do something?

As always, any/all input is appreciated.

Thank you, Marcel. There is a lot to learn but I'm having a blast. Everyone is so helpful.

Can you explain the "Rank" button on the top right? Not sure I understand that.
Reply
Marcel92 Premium
You are very welcome, Randy. The "Rank" button is where you check to see how your activities within WA rank. Every time you login, help a member with a question, create a blog, , training tutorials and how active you are is noted in this area. Only the top 200 and up members will show their names on the Ambassador list. You will find the Ambassadorship on your left menu at the bottom.
Hope this is useful info for you.

Hi Randall,

I see you've made a great start and got your profile set up.

Awesome.

I want to give you access to my bonus for joining our fantastic community.

My idea with this bonus is to share what's working for me and resources that have helped me in this exciting journey of ours.

People that succeed with WA tend to follow the training exactly to start with and as their confidence builds do more of what suits them as individuals. To succeed we all have to work at it but not all do exactly the same things (no army of robots here).

This is exactly how I've evolved, tailoring the work flow to suit me and my circumstances.

So please feel free to use any of my 'stuff' any way you wish, and also please feel free to ask any questions you may have.

I'm always happy to help if I can.

Anyway my bonus material is freely available here...

Richard.

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! :)

Hello Kyle. Please call me Randy. My computing background is still coming through. lol My thought is that I'd like to focus on "computer/software/office suites". More specifically, Corel Office Suite. I wasn't sure how specific to be, as there are other office suites out there. Any suggestions?

Kyle Premium
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. :)

Hi Randall and welcome!

My name's Richard and I just wanted to welcome you to the Wealthy Affiliate community and offer you any help should you need it.

Wealthy Affiliate is a hype free community of friendly like minded people only to willing to help others. The training is also the best online marketing training I've ever seen.

Remember to access my free bonus for joining WA you'll need to add a profile picture (could be a pet picture if you prefer) to complete your profile.

My bonus includes all sorts of stuff to help you get started, and how I've used the WA training to earn me passive monthly profits whilst working full time.

Great, once you've done your profile it's time for the first training (link below) Anyways, I'll let you press on.

Great to have you join the community!
