About Rdbest
Joined August 2016
Thanks for visiting me on WA!! I’m a “retiring” engineer, after spending nearly 33 years working at power plants and for various engineering firms (including my own). I enjoy life in general, but traveling and seeing our beautiful country and the world is one of the highlights for me … I hope to be able to do much more of that in the near future.

I also like to read in my spare time. It is very important to me to always be filling my mind with the right things – things that inspire me to be a better version of myself. There are so many of the opposite kinds of things out there, not only in the printed word, but in the broadcast and internet media, and in our interactions with others on a daily basis … we must always be striving to put ourselves in the position for good things to happen, not bad!

As I said, I’ve spent over 30 years in an engineering discipline that has been very good to me, and I am very glad and thankful to have had this experience. Now I'm using that worldly experience to pursue new dreams and goals, and to provide for my family in new ways.

Many blessings to you all !!

Randy
Rdbest's Goals 3
Money Goals
I have to admit that I did skim an answer given by another poster to start with, but the values are still mine!! I have done a lot of research as to what I need to earn before I can truly quit working, and so these are more than educated guesses.

Answer #1: I would be happy earning 3,000+ a month

Answer #2: I would be ecstatic to earn 10,000+ each month

Answer #3: I'm willing to invest most of my weekdays and some weekend time to this, outside of my other commitments. My family is not in a desperate situation financially to start with so I hope to be able to go at this thoughtfully and get it done right the first time!

Broken down, this is going to be more than achievable for you (and then some). The internet has over 2 billion people actively search for and buying things online. All you need to do is connect with a few of these people each day to meet your initial goal!

I know with some hard work and persistence you will achieve all of your goals and then be building brand new ones. I am here to help if you ever need anything and you have an entire community rooting for your success here at WA Randall! :)

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 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

Randall, 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 Randall.
Reply
Kyle Premium
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! :)
Reply
rdbest Premium
Kyle, thanks. I think I found one, it's "Retirement-Is-Achievable.com", so it's a site about how to take stock of your current financial picture, and then it eventually lead folks to the WA site for "my best method" for how to increase their income (the key that makes all retirement planning easier is to be making signficantly more than you are spending to start with). I'm building out the site now - I know it's kind of wordy right now so I'm going to be working on that, but my "Getting Started" page is what I'd especially like your feedback on ... a link to it is at the bottom of my main content page. THANKS!
Reply
Kyle Premium
Sure, that is great and I like what you have done thus far. I don't recommend that you create content like this:

http://retirement-is-achievable.com/home

Be thorough with your content. Quality content is content that is helpful and often times means it being thorough.

With each page or post you create on your website, people should come to it and feel as they have gotten the help/information that they were looking for and it was presented in a way that was interesting.
Reply
rdbest Premium
OK, so should I just delete that first page?

http://retirement-is-achievable.com/home

Will the site automatically land on another one of my pages then?
Reply
rdbest Premium
Did you look at my other pages? They are certainly thorough I think, maybe too thorough.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, you are definitely more thorough with those. I do have a few suggestions in respect to that though:

(1) Smaller paragraphs. It can be very difficult to read large blocks of content, in particular with the fact that we are living in a 140 character world.

White space within your content (smaller paragraphs) will lead to much better readability and more people will read your content as a result.

Ex. http://retirement-is-achievable.com/understanding-your-current-financial-situation

(2) Use clear and concise headlines within your content. You can do this by using h3 tags that break up your content. It will make your content much more readable.

Here is an example of what I mean:

http://waystoavoidscamsonline.com/how-to-sell-your-art-online-paint-yourself-successful

As you scroll down, you will see headlines that break apart my content and foreshadow to my audience what I am going to talk about.

Ex. Art, to be honest, is an EASY sell within the online world?

This is highly effective and will lead to much more readership of your content.

(3) I recommend that you use more visuals within your content. Most people are visual by nature and when you create content, you should have associated images that reflect what you are talking about.

This will lead to more engagement, a higher reader rate, and as a result, more conversions.

Off and running overall though. :)
