Hello everyone,

Let's start with the PS:

PS: I'm striving to be more effective and not side-tracking as much as before so if I fail to re-follow, reply, re-like and alike, don't take it personally. I love you all and everything you do for me and others!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My name is Lars. Danish/Canadian, living in QC, Canada. After 30+ years in engineering, I decided to do something completely different, so I started a small business, to make a living.

While I am hustling to get customers to my "Installation of Ikea kitchens" business, I am working on a few other business adventures.

One is inventing/designing products which I seek to license to companies. Being creative has always been an interest to me so now I am combining this with my engineering skills so hopefully, in a future not so far away, you will be able to buy some of my products at Walmart or other retailers.

Now, on top of all that, I have set out to be a world champion Internet Marketeer. Nothing more, nothing less. Seeing the years passing by so fast has increased the need for a business with no geographical boundaries. Combining IM with my product development business is a powerful combo so this is where my effort is directed.

Thank you.
Lars

Hello Lars ... thank you for the follow. Your plans sound quite ambitious. Are you designing and installing Ikea Kitchens or do you subcontract installations?

And your doing product design on the side. So what do you do in your spare time? :-)

I wish you the best on your WA journey.

Thanks, Dennis, you're welcome. Some years back I heard Tony Robbins say "...in order to become successful, you need to take massive action".

This stayed with me so when I feel like watching Netflix, I hear Tony talk to me and I get behind the PC and start working.

My kitchen business is only to survive. Most of my customers let Ikea help them with the design but some sometimes I do that too. I install the kitchens myself, no subcontractors. That is the only way I can keep the quality top notch. I have no plans of scaling up, as I only need to make enough for NOW, not for the future.

I develop my products on the side whenever I have time. The good thing about making my money in my own business is that every now and then I can take a full day at home working on WA, my products, or something different :-)

All the best to you too.
Cheers.

Hey Lars,

I see that you are doing the IKEA "thing". I came across a site where they were offering advice -- and selling products -- teaching people how to take standard IKEA items and tweak them with various enhancements to make them look handmade and unique.

I found it to be an interesting idea. I have the mechanical ability of a three-toed sloth (lol), so it wouldn't work for me as a niche, but with your engineering background, and your experience with IKEA, it might be a niche worth checking out.

Take care, friend. :-)

Thanks for the tip. I know of a few websites that offer Ikea hacks but I am not aware of any products they are offering.

However, I get enough of Ikea during the day so I need something else when I am home.

My site will most likely prove to be difficult to monetize off, but I will try anyway. I actually only started it because I had come up with an idea for a new diet plan so I need to build an audience before I can launch any sale of my diet. However, now the site is slowly turning into a mental restoration project for myself. Kind of weird but highly needed.

Cheers.

I think it might be easier than you think. There are hundreds of thousands of affiliate programs out there, not to mention millions of products. There are sites making full-time income off of Amazon alone. And that doesn't even count advertising revenue you can get.

But you are correct in your assumption. You can have all the links and ads in the world, but if you don't have eyeballs looking at it, you won't make a dime. For now, forget all that. Just focus on creating the best, most helpful content you can.

Getting a steady stream of traffic is the hard part; after that, making money is simple. :-)

Thanks for the tip.

I have not searched on "when to start adding affiliate links" yet but my own 2-cents is that links do not have a place before I see some steady traffic. What do you think?

I guess I can always add some relevant links to old posts when I have traffic?

Thanks.
Reply
AJTrimble1 Premium
Exactly. You can always go back.

You can add them whenever you like, of course, but for me a useful yardstick has been to look at the level where the more premium (i.e. not Google AdSense) advertising programs start. The lowest I've seen to be accepted to a good quality ad revenue site is roughly 30,000 page views a month, so that's what I shoot for. With a steady flow of good content, you can achieve that in only a few months (say, 6-8 months, to be conservative, but I've also seen it done in as little as 3.) It's really not that difficult if you're patient and consistent.

My biggest concern is when I see new members getting so excited about the concept of making money that they ignore the realities and just start loading up the site with a bunch of links too early. When there isn't a lot of actual content to balance it out, it just makes their site look "spammy", if you know what I mean, and they effectively kill off any traffic before they even really get started.

I think you are being very prudent in your approach. I see great things for you in the future :-)

Keep me posted on your progress, and let me know if there is anything I can help with.

rannes Premium
Thanks a lot for your insight.
Yes, I treat my blog for what it is, a blog for me to post relevant content to my audience. Then later down the road, I will add links or other income features.
I hear you when you describe the pages where people focus on links more than content. I have seen a lot of unpleasant looking websites and when I check out those who need a comment, I have to move on if it doesn't appeal to me.
In one of my first posts, I had one of the commenters post one of her own affiliate link in her comment. How low one can go has no lower limit huh?
Cheers.
Reply
AJTrimble1 Premium
Yeah, I get that a lot, too. One way to minimize it at least a bit is to set your controls as such that you have to approve all comments on your site. This way you can weed out the crap before it ever hits your page. The only downside is that if you have a popular site, you may find yourself spending a lot of time just reviewing comments.

One idea that I've been toying with is the thought of keeping such a set up on my more "authority" type sites, but just eliminating comments completely on the more passive "niche" sites. That way at least those are more on autopilot. I haven't tried it yet, so I'm not sure how much it will affect the traffic. I guess we'll see. lol
Reply
rannes Premium
I have the settings like that already, so nothing get's posted without my approval. The spammed comment I replaced the affiliate link with my own link to the same product so in case anyone clicks and buy, I will get the dough :-)

H!! And welcome to WA Premium!! You will not regret your decision to go Premium! The information available here is never ending! And the training is incredible, and you won’t find anything like it, anywhere else!! Take it ALL in!!

Follow the training! I cannot stress this enough. Do not skip around. Do the lessons in the order in which they are. As well as the tasks that follow each of those lessons. I often jumped ahead in my training, to only later really regret it. Take my word for it, it’s not worth it. Stay on course.
Go at your pace. Slow and steady is my new rule. You'll find you can't wait to learn more in the following days. You’ll want to learn more!! It ignites a new passion within you. It did me! Gave me back my purpose for living! There were a few lessons that I had to watch twice. If that's what you have to do, do it!

And soon you will have yourself an awesome website. Amazing direction, and the tools that you need to succeed in whatever it is you want to do!

You CAN do this!!

Be awesome! Be amazing!! And be successful!!!

Way to go Lars on becoming a Wealthy Affiliate PREMIUM member. If you are anything like me you saw the value offered here in learning to prosper in an online world! One of my first PAYDAYS from what I learned in WA was creating a “mockup” website for a business associate who was reinventing his company's marketing pages. I did it on a siterubix FREE site using Wordpress and Kyle’s training & ChaCing... made 500 bucks! The possibilities are endless!
Much Success to YOU,
Timo

Hey Lars! Congrats and welcome to WA premium!

I think the most import thing to do with any new venture is to "plug in" and be consistent. Schedule time each day to do the training, work on your site and write content. You'll find that content is king. :)

Here's to great success with your WA journey and online endeavors!

Hi, Lars.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. WA is a great community. There is so much to learn. I am here most days. I learn something every day.

I've been a Premium member of Wealthy Affiliate over 18 months now, and I don't regret one day!

Keep moving ahead. However your day may be, take a little step forward. Some days you'll make significant strikes, other days you will not, but do something every day, however small in building your business.

You will read many stories of WA members succeeding with their online goals. Some have achieved this in a few months, for others, it has taken a couple of years. The common trait for those that have reached their goals is taking action. Everyone who has succeeded has taken small steps every day. Do something, however tiny, every day, and you will reach your goal.

Pace yourself and enjoy your journey.

Best wishes,
Paul.
Be Happy!

Hello and welcome to Premium. This website is full of wonderful helpers and I have learnt to always use the search tab at the top of the desktop, the answer is usually in someone's free training. Type in topic, rather than long question.
There is an answer to just about every question, all you need to do is ask..
Aside from the Certification and Bootcamp courses, there is heaps of extra training. Check out the training classrooms as well as the live events. There are current as well as past events in here. You can find both these tabs on the left-hand side
Start playing with tabs and boxes on your dashboard, there is so much hidden information, just keep looking for it.
Enjoy Wealthy Affiliate. There are lots of people here only too happy to help you along the way with encouragement and helpful tips. Wealthy Affiliate is about training, but that is just a small part of this wonderful community. If you participate as well as train, you will gain so much more.

Hey Lars! I wanted to start you off with a quick note that could SIGNIFICANTLY impact your success with Wealthy Affiliate. Read this entire message if you are serious about being successful in internet marketing (it's lengthy, but I'm not joking when I say that this advice could make or break your entire internet marketing career):


1) You'll need to work consistently and hard. There's going to be a lot to learn in the beginning and you may feel overwhelmed at a point, but keep pressing forward and you'll make it through. It happened to me and every other successful internet marketer at some point, and the only way to become successful in this industry is to push past that overload whenever you get there.


Do yourself a favor and commit to a number of hours that you can work each week right now. It doesn't have to be massive, but it should be more than 10 between evenings and weekends at least. Just remember the more you work each week, the faster you'll learn and draw closer to success.


After you've picked the number of hours you can work each week, commit to working that much for AT LEAST six months - a year would be better. You won't see results immediately in this industry, and being consistent is the key. Pick a number of hours you can work each week, then work those hours for at least six months. It's something you've probably never done in this industry, and this advice alone will make a HUGE difference in your chances at succeeding with internet marketing as long as you take it seriously and STICK WITH IT.


2) I recommend starting off with this training (which you can access with your free account): It just scratches the surface of the MASSIVE amount of helpful content in WA, but you'll get a good "feel" for the teaching style here and begin to see the power of all of the great things they're teaching here at Wealthy Affiliate.


3) DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE COMMUNITY. Two of the best places you can go to for help when you get stuck are the "Live Chat" and the "Classrooms" sections located on the panel to your left. You'll find direction and inspiration through the community here, which is one of the reasons I recommend WA so highly.


4) Finally, you don't ever have to upgrade to the premium account here at Wealthy Affiliate if you don't want to. You'll have limited access using your free account for as long as you wish. HOWEVER, if you're serious about internet and affiliate marketing then you should invest in the premium membership for AT LEAST one month. You could look back on it years from now and see it as a pivotal moment in your internet marketing career, but you never will if you don't at least give it a try.


Check it out for a few days though - you don't need to upgrade right now. Make sure it's a good fit for you, and if you upgrade within the first 7 days you'll receive your first month's membership at more than 50% off. I keep my membership active and recurring every month so I can be here for the people I refer like you, so realize that I'm putting my money where my mouth is here!


On top of that, if you upgrade to a premium membership at the discounted rate within the first 7 days I have a special bonus EXCLUSIVE to people that join WA through me and upgrade within the first week of creating their free account. This bonus will show you how to be twice as successful with WA or any other legitimate internet marketing program out there and gives you some very valuable video lessons (which I recorded for you personally, of course) to ensure you get off to the right step in your internet marketing business.


I keep a close watch on the list of people that upgrade from starter to premium, so I'll send the bonus your way within 24 hours. If you upgrade and don't receive it within that time frame for some reason, just post on my WA profile and let me know!


I don't offer that bonus so you'll spring for the membership and make me more money, I offer the bonus just in case you needed that tiny "push" to make sure you invest in this training because I know that you will use for the rest of your IM career and it could change your life. I've referred hundreds of people now and I have NEVER had anyone tell me they were dissatisfied.


Best of luck to you! You're about to embark on a journey that could change your life forever, so make sure you take it seriously, put in the time and effort, and expect great things in return!


You know where to find me,
Ian Pribyl
