About Robg1
Joined December 2009
Hi my name is Rob. I am originally from Scotland but live in Thailand now.

I first joined WA back in 2009. However I made all the newbie mistakes and didn't really get anywhere.

Four years after last leaving WA, I have now rejoined. I believe I have come back this time with a more mature attitude and a greater understanding of how affiliate marketing works.

I am ready this time to build a step by step business and build myself a solid second income.

Looking forward to meeting many of the new members and getting stuck into things once more.

Hi Rob,

I'm thinking of converting to the yearly membership, but still wondering if it's worth it. May I ask how much a month you are making now that we're in 2018?

Hi Windlfower,

I am making the same as a couple of years ago.

Why? Because I have been lazy and haven't built more pages on my site. I have been distracted by other things etc etc. The same reasons that anyone gives here for not making money.

WA works plain and simple. It's all about how much work you put in and being consistent. . I would say that if you are prepared to go the distance, it's definitely worth it.

Best of Luck :-)

I see you are in Buriram, I'm in Nangrong, buriram. I;ve been here 4 years.

Hi Paul, yes I've been in Buriram since 2011. Although I've been working in Saudi for the last 2 1/2 years. What are you doing in Nang Rong?
Reply
PaulWeeks Premium
Retired. I'm currently a house husband looking after 3 boys. 19 17 and 10.
Joined WA to see if I can earn a little extra cash.
Are you in Buriram city or the province.?

Robg1 Premium
In the city. It's hardly a big city though. Quite like it compared with all the tourist towns. Easy to get around and enough expats to have a few friends and people to have a beer with. Shame it's a bit inaccessible though. Many friends have visited Thailand but we are too far off the tourist track for people to take time out of their holiday to come and see us.

I know. I've tried to tell yhem about the old temples in and around Nangrong. But yes its too far.
In nangrong there are a lot of germans swiss an scandinavians. And a few english.
A couple of bars. And a lot of nice restaurants.
My wife and I go up to Robinsons quite often. So next time i will warn you.

Hi there,

I've been a member here for a few years now. I've made some money on one of my sites. But really going to go for it in 2018.

Where in Thailand do you stay??
Reply
Dhind1 Premium
I live in Jomtien, my wife's family is from this area and this is the village for her. I really like it here, but it is tough to make a living. I am hoping WA can solve that.

You don't need a lot in Thailand. An extra $1000 a month will go a long way.

Hi Rob!

I've bookmarked your website, because I am definitely interested in learning how to grow fruits and vegetables. I just planted a whole bunch of strawberry plants that a friend gave me, and for the first time in my life...I didn't kill them! In fact, they're flowering, and I understand that's a good sign. Oh, your website is simple but the content is good. I was going to make a few suggestions, but if you're making money from it, maybe you don't need them.

I'm following you!

Hi Rob, you're over in Thailand and from Scotland, I'm over in Malaysia and also from Scotland - AND like you, this is my second attempt at affiliate marketing, although my first go wasn't with WA. If you have any tips I'd appreciate it....I've only just joined WA about a month ago.

Cheers,
Craig.

Hi Craig, WA is a great place to learn Affiliate marketing. It really takes you through the steps one by one.

Once you have the technical side sorted (setting up a website and joining affiliate programs) the process is actually very simple. Key words, Key words, key words is where it's at.

Just think of each new page on your website as it's own little fishing line in the world wide web ocean.

By researching your keywords correctly you maximise the chance of getting that fishing line into better water.

If you don't know what i'm talking about just go through the training on the "get started here" tab and you'll understand soon enough.

Good luck :-)

You're not kidding, it's almost like watching a child growing up and always wondering what they're going to end up doing next. I really love trying to keep up with their ever changing privacy policies too (in my sarcastic voice). Let me know if you ever need a second opinion on anything IM related.

Hi there thanks. Yes all is good. Still trying to get my head around all the constant changes to the Google rules at he moment! But I'm Ok!
Reply
Robg1 Premium
Yes its tough! But I think social networking is going to start to play a much larger part especially with Facebook making some great changes so you can see everyone's comments on everything. Build a brand, build Facebook and twitter pages etc - hopefully get a following and post your articles etc that way as an extra avenue. I am getting closer all the time. Its funny I hit brick walls (especially with the uncertainty of Google at the moment). Then I come back a month later and realise I've done great work and wonder why the hell I did't follow through! Ha.

Quite agree with your take on offline business and freedom but freedom comes in a variety of packages. I paid a fleeting visit to Thailand back in the 70s whilst stationed in Singapore/Malaysia with the Army. Bet it's changed significantly in places since then. Cheers, JR

Robg1 Premium
Yes its changed! Especially the islands. Unfortunately tourism has completely ruined many of them. I live up in the north which is still quite unaffected. But they are aspiring to the Western way which is a little sad I think.

I have those visions too! I am living in the north of Thailand at the moment. Really beautiful mountains. I have a coupe of months off teaching so I am at the lap top 24/7. Just to really get things going. I will be back on the beaches soon! Take a look at my affiliate marketing lifestyle website blog. I need to update it with the photos of the scenery here! Just keep going. Thats all I can say!
