About Rcarney6
Joined August 2008
I am currently am engaged in a coaching/speaking/writing business. Internet marketing is integrally related to all three.

I mentioned Morthland College in my earlier bio and blog posts. It was a great ride. I started out as an adjunct professor, quickly went to teaching full time and became the department chair of Biblical Studies. Then I shared responsibilities as the department chair and as the dean of academic affairs.

After that, we passed on the department chair responsibility to one of my colleagues.

After spending a while as academic dean, I moved into the position of provost. My assistant moved into the dean's position.

After a couple of years of that, I retired as provost in May of 2016.

During this time, the college received full accreditation from TRACS, (The Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools).

We also were members of the NCCAA (National Christian College Athletic Association.) We won a national invitational basketball tournament, held at Oakland City University, in 2016.

After retiring from the college In 2016, I completed two books. One of them, 21 Ways the Principle of Leaving: Why You Should Apply this Shocking Key to Marital Bliss, hit the Amazon Best-Sellers' list in June. I had started that book before the retirement in May. The other book is From Mountains to Molehills: Overcoming and Celebrating Your Differences in Marriage. That is the second in the six-book series: The LOVING Way to a Successful Marriage: Six Keys to Marital Bliss. It also hit the Amazon Best-Sellers' list shortly after it launched.

I also am able to accept more speaking engagements now too. I am a bivocational minister

I have kept my WA membership through this time and plan to get back into it more. Actually, much of what I learned here has helped with "the day job," with getting the book on the best-seller's list, and with forming a foundation for marketing my current speaking, writing, and coaching business

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! :)

I finished the Chemistry textbook in December. In March, I finished the book, The LOVING Way to a Successful Marriage. I have it in a pdf file, and I want to make it available on my website, but having a little trouble figuring out how to make it available on a "Thank You" page. Hope things are going well for the rest of you.

I'm thinking all you have to do is find MOIS 1 on clickbank, and sign up to be an affiliate through clickbank. Then you will already be an affiliate for MOIS 2 because it will come up as an upsell when someone buys MOIS 1. My understanding is that is how it will work. So, when someone promotes MOIS 1, they can also promote MOIS 2 saying that it will be available. It is like you have a regular product, which is MOIS 1 only, and like you have a premium product, which is MOIS 1 AND MOIS 2. That's the best way I know to describe it. You do not have to join to become an affiliate.

A couple of moderators or administrators can get people who already have MOIS 1 into MOIS 2, but otherwise the affiliate program is only like I described above, if I understand it correctly. It won't be an internal affiliate program, at least, not right now.

My internet service is cutting in and out. Ice storm here in the Midwest--thankful to have power, though.

Hey topearner,

I'm not sure what you meant, but the third line in my signature at MOiS mentions WA. Mois 2 seems like it will be really good. People have to have MOIS 1 to get it though. Part of the reasoning is that without the foundation of MOIS 1, or at least what is taught there, a new person would b completely lost. Sometimes we do buy whole products just to get the part we want. That would be the same with this product. It is like upgrading from a regular product to a premium version. That would mean a relatively advanced marketer would have to sign up with MOIS and take the upgrade to get MOIS 2. That would make it a little less than $70.00. Like I said, it is really good because it helps you learn how to develop your own product. Someone who has already done that may not find it that beneficial.

People who have already bought MOIS can go to the forum and click MyOnline3's link (or any of the myonline's for that matter) in the signature and get MOIS 2 at the discounted rate of $27, I think.

How are you doing here?

Cool! I made a mission trip to Mexico a few weeks ago. Plan to go to Australia in 2011.
Desination pipelines sounds interesting. I have been working with PPC--Google seems to be tightening up on certain types of sites. People who have several years of CTR history built up seem not to be experiencing any problems, but others are expereincing drops in quality scores for sites that have been up a while. The bad news--not making money because of the drop. The good news--not having to spend any extra money. i think we will get through this. You can see some of the discussion about it during the forums area--Google AdWords discussion.

Glad what you are doing is working well.

Hi, Farm Girl,

Really like the pictures of the farm and the family. My wife and I grew up here in southern Illinois (Most of us here though actually think of it as Southern (with a big "S") Illinois, (Ha!) We lived in Kansas City, MO; Fort Worth, TX; Memphis, TN; and Lewisville, Tx (Suburb of Dallas). Then 23 years ago we escaped the rat race and moved to the back side of the farm where I grew up.

I started internet marketing this last May. While it is possible to make money quickly, it seems like for most of us there is a learning curve. What I have found though, is that if you either learn something new or do something new each day, all that effort begins to accumulate and you continue to see more and more signs of hope. I do make money online, but most of that comes through writing projects.

The 8-week action plan here at WA is great, but it is a little advanced (nothing that a new person cannot handle.) I started out with My Online Income System. It's 60-day action plan went step-by-step and introduced us to the terminology and basic concepts of affiliate marketing using the free methods (which is one of the tracks you follow through the plan here.) Now My Online Income System has a sequel that helps you to learn the ins and outs of developing your own product and how to become a vendor where other people can promote your products. While I thought the My Online Income Sytstem (MOIS) was really pretty good for newbies. The upgrade to include My Online Incme System 2 has really taken things up a notch. I think one of the best routes a person could follow would be to go through MOIS 1 and then MOIS 2. Then right after that get right into Wealthy Affiliate. The range of experience that people have here at WA is awesome, and they are able to provide help for those that are at all levels in the forums.
MOIS has good forums too, but, of course it is mainly populated with those who are just learning, altough recently they have added more staff who are more experienced and who participate actively in the forums.

Having said all that, though, since you are already here at WA, everything you need is probably here too--just work on getting an understanding of terminology and concepts.

Learn all you can, and hang in there. I am convinced this will work. I keep getting closer every day. I am also a bivocational pastor, and I recently resigned my church to be more involved in ministry that will require traveling. I, like you, really need this to work.

Goog to talk to you.

Helloooooooooo, Cate,

Good to see you here! Did you joing yesterday or last night. There are so many choices it is easy to get overwhelmed. The eight-week action plan is good. it doesn't have daily tasks but weekly tasks. Also, about the thirf or fourth week, they ask you if you want to use free methods or paid methods. When I first went through, I stuck with the free methods, which are a continuation and reiforcement of what you learn at MOIS.

Since I was doing PPC book for MOIS 2, I went through the plan again using paid methods. That's when i got the two sales in the first five days of the month!

Another thing that is good is the Superaffiliate course, which gives you tasks to complete before you move on. I am just finishing the third week of it. I'm finding I like Pay-per-click.

I always read the new items that come up in the Share Zone which is put out by members. You'll find the forums similar to MOIS but populated with people who are not only beginners but also with experienced people, so you can get help at whatever level you are.

Anyway, welcome aboard. If I can help on this side, let me know.

Cate, another tip. I noticed that when I tried to use Site Rubix, sometimes the program would go into a loop, just saying, "loading content" over and over. After reading through several things here, found out that if you use Mozilla Firefox that is a lot less likely to happen. You can download Firefox for free. I will talk to you later. Gotta finish getting ready for tonight's message.

Hi, Wendy,

Hey, another adventure together. I'm glad you made it over here. There are so many things offered here, it is easy to get overwhelmed. I found the 8-week action plan to be good. It has weekly tasks instead of daily tasks. About the third or fourth week, it asks you to choose free or paid marketing tactics. The first time I went (and partly just read) through it, I went the free route. I found it to be a lot like MOIS as far as what it taught, but it ded tweak some things.

Since I was writing about PPC for MOIS 2, I went through the plan again, and chose "paid" methods. I internalized what they were teaching and expressed the ideas in my own ways as additions to the PPC PLR book we have access to at MOIS2. I also began to apply what I was reading. That was when I made the two sales in five days at the beginning of the month. I am finding I really like PPC, but I am still refining how to keep from losing money as well as making it with that method.

Anyway, it is great to have you here.

Another thing I always do is read everything that comes out in the Share Zone. Most of those things are very helpful. You'll find the forum populated with beginners and advanced marketers, so you can get help at whatever level you are.

Another thing I am helpful is the Super Affiliate course. I has tasks that you have to complete before you can go to the next. I am somewhere between steps 3 and 4 or between 4 and 5. Anyway, it has been really good too.
I hope this furthers your goal of being able to quit your job.

Today is my last Sunday as pastor of my church. I presented some of my future ministry ideas and picked up several people who are going to support us on a monthly basis. Pardon me for getting into the lingo of my occupation, but, "Praise the Lord!" Ha! Between Affiliate marketing becoming more successful and getting "missions support," maybe I will be able to replace that church income before too much longer. I need to because it is already gone. In fact i got my last check (I was paid in advance) about a month ago!

Another thing I noticed when I was learning Site Rubix, You sometimes have to use Mozilla Firefox for it or it may hang up. You can download Firefox for free. I still prefer IE most of the time, but sometimes i use Firefox when I am doing Site Rubix. Navigating these WA Spaces, i hung up a little too. I suspect Firefox might be better for doing this too.

Thanks for the welcome. I started with the My Online Income System. I did little more than make back my investment with it, but I learned a lost of terminology and internet marketing concepts with it. That program also introduced me to Travis Sago (a member here) and bummarketing. I don't think I would have understood half of what I read here if had not gone through MOIS first.

I make money online, but it is mainly through a freelance writing contract to write chapters for a chemistry textbook. That causes my time level for internet marketing to go up and down.

One of the interesting things I found here was the entry in the share zone about writing 90 articles in three days. While I have not approached that level, I have tried writing the same information in threee different ways. It has been interesting to see the different numbers of clicks related to the different titles. If you haven't already checked it out, you might want to look it up.

Keep up the good work.

Hi rcarney6, the method in my video works for me, I tested again last night and about 2 hours later the stats had been recorded.
The only thing I can suggest is to try again, make sure you insert the "Legacy Tracking Code (urchin.js)" and it goes into the last possible module.
If it doesn't work the other option is to download the files to your computer and insert the code while editing the html files in notepad or another program. inserting the code immediately before the tag.
Then you would need to ftp the files back to your hosting.

Hi rcarney6, quick question, do you know how to use Core FTP to connect to your hosting? https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/index.php/hosting/help/ftp_view
If you don't go download the program and see if you can connect, I'll show you via video how to add the tracking code it's very easy.

Hi Randy,
Ok, there is no audio with this video, I have a house full and kids running around like crazy.

First you should go into siterubix and delete the tracking codes you entered then re-upload your site via siterubix.
Then install and open Core FTP and follow along with the video, if you have any question just let me know.

Hi Randy, Glad you go it all figure out and thanks for the gold, I think the reason you had the problem in the first place has something to do with the template, because all your content was inside a table, in my video the template I used had a module outside of the template.
Anyway it's good you now know how to login via ftp etc, it will come in handy.

Hi, Welshy,

I don't doubt that you are telling the truth; however, all I can is that I think I have the steps exatcly as you suggested. Actually I had done that before I saw your video except that I had tried the new code. After watching the video. I went back and removed the code I had put in, and went through it again, just like you show, using the leagcy code. I was really hopeful that would make the difference. As you can see, I left it up for several days, and the stats still do not show.

Putting it in before the "/body" code is what I would want to have done in the first place but how to do that is a little beyond me. You said to "open the files in notepad." O.K. I woud like to do that, but what files are you talking about? I know how to go to the ftp and see the left icon in the upper right corner that lists the files, but is there just one for the page I want to do; or, are there different files for all the modules on that page?

I also am curious as to why we should use the legacy code instead of the new code. Thanks for your help.

Also, nice family. I am always excited about families that stay together and enjoy doing so :) !

Welshy, I may have downloaded the FTPCore earlier.
The screens that show down below that look like what you can do with Site Rubix when you click on "Site", etc. and click on the icon at the top of your page to ftp upload your files, just like what you have to do after you edit the boxes or add new things to Site Rubix. That screen already has http://docs on it.

Is that what I need or do you think I still need to download coreftp?

Thanks. I would be glad to watch the video for going that route.

Again, thanks for your quick reply and your conern.

Hi, Craig (I think someone called you that earlier) or Welshy,

It's me again. Looking at the video, I don't think I have Core FTP, so I downloaded it. That went O.K.
I think I understand the video. I went back into Site Rubix and removed the code I had placed there. Then I uploaded that file again through Site Rubix.

Now, my problem is with one of the very first screens i see on the video. It is shown only briefly, so I paused the video where I could see it.
It is the "Site Manager Screen" (for Core FTP). I am assuming I should be using "New Site." (Correct me if I am wrong.)
I guess I could name whatever I wanted 'for "Site Name."
I don't know what to put for "Host/IP/URL." I mean I know what the IP address is for my computer, but I am not sure if that is what goes there.
After that, I am guessing that I pick my own username and password.

If I can get over that hump I might be able to do the rest.

Thanks again for your help. I think I am almost there!

Hi, Craig, Yes! I am reciving stats. There were 5 over the last few days. Some of them were from my town, so those were the ones I was making to check to see if they were being recorded. One of them was from Ottawa. Was that one your from when you checked my page? Another one was frm Eastlake, so that was probably one that was "real traffic."

Thanks again for taking the time to see this through.
