About Rolfkb
Joined December 2015
Hi, my name is Rolf Kaare Bratli, among friends only Rolf. I am living in Abu Dhabi (UAE) with my Chinese wife Xiumei (only Mei by friends), and our son John Richard.

I should actually retire now as I am 70, but there is too much energy left so I cannot park myself in the rocking chair yet.

Since I am a little curioous about this Internet Marketing thing -- can it really be used to earn money from home?? And if so, maybe I can use it to spread my own course in rock mechanics using this medium -- it shall be interesting to find out!

Hi Rolf. Really great to connect with you. We're of the same vintage, like good old wine, and still want to do something interesting in this world. I joined in Feb.2016, and have been having so much fun! The community here is awesome - you could never be bored - there is always a witty comment somewhere! Best to you. Regards, Jan

Hi Jan, likewise! I would rather say a good old cognac or what do you say?

I have had a blast here the time since I joined in Dec.14 2015! Unfortunately, I lost most of February month due to court cases (opened by me) and the bad flu, but what the heck - it's dangerous to live. :-)

Keep in touch so we can have a laugh or two - that what make it worth living!

Definitely keep in touch - laughter keeps you young, just like a good cognac! Actually I'm a tee- totaller but can have just as much fun over a cup of tea.! I'm having a struggle with my website, just getting Google verification was a drama, succeeded in the end, now the same drama with trying to add an affiliate site, so much so that the site has sent me a chalkboard with red arrows to point the way! You had a month off due to court cases and I took a month to verify!! Got to laugh, that's what keeps life worth living! Regards, Jan

Thank you Katie for the encouragement. I lost a month in February due to court attendence (case opened by me) and disussions with lawyers.

Not someone to get inspired from!

And in the last week of February I fell ill with the flu. This took me out of circulation for another 12 days. Now back and restarting my WA training as I need to refresh what was learned before this ordeal.

Taking action is really key Rolf. Better to understand before rushing forward, you are perfectly correct. You will not be stuck for help either if something is problematic - but better to learn from mistakes first:)
Reply
rolfkb Premium
Hi Ben, that's why I call my websites my online lab's. Here I can try out thing and see if they work.
What I really want to do is bring my training in rock mechanics for the oil and gas industry online. Because there I have material from more than 40 years of experience.
But when I launch this site I have only ONE chance, and if I flop then - GAME OVER! So I want to make my flops now...:)
Therefore I will spend a couple of months completing the training and playing with the 2 websites I have now. I will mostly try to promote WA should I get some traffic.
It would be fun if I could earn some money when I learn the ropes - earn while you learn - wasn't that the tag line I have heard recently...?

Hi Rolf, I followed you from your comment on my profile and read some of your blogs here. i am so sorry that you lost your confidence in humanity. We have all been burned somewhere, sometime. Yet, somehow WA played a part in your being restored. I am so glad to hear that. It only takes one bad apple to make the whole barrel seem rotten but once you dig down and get rid of the bad you usually find that there are far more good than bad.

You are never too old to start again to create goals and fulfill dreams as long as you have your health. maintain that and your loving family and all the wealth ...or lack of it will not matter all that much. Take care.

Hi Rolf,

Did you ever get your domain issue sorted out? Just making sure everything got sorted fine, but if you are still having issues let me know. Hope you are having a great weekend!
Reply
rolfkb Premium
Hi Kyle,

no I have not got this sorted out yet, as the DNS rests with WA since the Domain was bougth here.

I sent a request to Support 2 days ago, citing your and Carson's email of 5-7 days ago and my reply, with a request that we sort it out as soon as possible.

As I have said in my previous communications regarding this issue I want to be of as much assistance as possible to solve it. The money is not an issue, I just want this to be settled one wat or the other...

And to your question about having a great time -- YES how can I not be having a grear time in this environment of learning and positive attitude!
-- 0 --

By the way, I have writteen an ebook about giving away a free website with hosting using SiteRubix, and in there I try to feature WealthyAffiliate.

If you want I can send you a copy.

I know that I have not been here for a long time, but I wanted to help "spread the word" using the knowledge from my occupation of writing technical reports, putting together MY understanding of the concepts presented in WA.

I don't pretend to understand the entire concept yet, and I will not use the ebook unless it is true to the spirit of WA, which I have learnt to admire and respect.

The multifaceted training and the Community of experts ready to point you in the right direction if you should go astray!

This is a great legacy for you and Carson having initiated the training and Community. I hope to be able to make my own small contribution to the Community by continuing to be positive and try to assist where I can and encourage when it is outside my technical skills to help.

Cheers

What is your domain name Rolf? Did you approve your email address with ICANN yet for your given domain name?
Reply
rolfkb Premium
My domain name is rolfsnobsonlineinfo.com. I did not confirm my email address with ICANN as I was not aware that was requiered. I will contact ICANN and give them my email right away.
Reply
rolfkb Premium
Actually, when I searched whois for rolfsnobsonlineinfo it is available, which means that my purchase has not been accepted and the information I got initially was correct.

Should I just repurchase this through WA or what is the solution you suggest?

According to this there is still an amount of $13.99 charged to my card. I prefer that you keep the money if possible, and let me try to repurchase.

Kyle Premium
Your domain looks like it is ready to go and you can now build a website on that domain.

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/build

I see it is in good standing within your account and you when you go to build it, you will want to "build it on a website that I own".

Go through this process and your website should be live immediately. :)
Reply
rolfkb Premium
Hi Kyle, that's terrific news. I appreciate your help! Thanks.
Reply
rolfkb Premium
Kyle, I just tried to build the site according to your sugestion and I got this response:
"The server at rolfsnobsonlineinfo.com can't be found, because the DNS lookup failed. DNS is the network service that translates a website's name to its Internet address. This error is most often caused by having no connection to the Internet or a misconfigured network. It can also be caused by an unresponsive DNS server or a firewall preventing Google Chrome from accessing the network."

So apparently the DNS problem is not resolved. Is there anything I can do? Please advise.

Kyle Premium
It looks like this domain is not available yet. Rolf, you NEED TO verify a domain with ICANN before you can use it. Did you get an email regarding your domain verification?
Reply
rolfkb Premium
No I did not get any email regarding domain verification. I bought it from WA and according to the announcement the domain should authomatically have the nameservers pointed to WA's servers.

I think that's why I did not get any email regarding registration. How shall I register the domain with ICANN? I have never done that before when I bought domain name from GoDaddy.

Point me to the resource where I can find an explanation and I wkk do it.

Cheers
rolfkb
Reply
Kyle Premium
That domain is available again because the ICANN hasn't been registered within the 2 week period (that they give). If you head over to SiteDomains you should be able to purchase it again, you haven't been charged for the initial transaction.

Rolf: Thank you so much for your follow. I appreciate it very much and welcome to my network of fabulous WAers. My network is about two things. First, I encourage every follower to regularly post a blog with WORTHY content to other WAers. Obviously, if you blog once a day your ranking will quickly move up in WA. However, please understand that I only blog approximately once every two weeks and in the back of my mind I am only blogging to my followers in an attempt to provide the best example (of my writing skills) to you that I can. Why? Your website will only be successful if you post quality pieces to it.
Second, I try to help my followers every time they run into a snag with their websites to the best of my ability. If that is not good enough, I will refer you to other HELPERS at WA that will definitely be able to help you. So an open invitation: If you run into a problem here at WA, please let me try to assist you.
Please remember that Kyle, Carson, me and you are not WA. WA is the thousands of students learning the concepts of e-commerce and the hundreds of WAers that learn to blog regularly for the delight of the community as they attempt to hone their various writing skills. Welcome! DAN

If you have time to have a peek on the site and give me some pointers of what's wrong there I would be delighted.A warning - my eyesight is somewhat impaired - so there may be a lot of typos, wlthough I try to go through everything before publishing..:-)

What can I say rolfkb? You don't have a website you have a very interesting e-book that just happens to also Affiliate Market WA. Great information. I am a little concerned that you may have to move in a little bit different direction to monetize your site but with your great content I am sure you will work it out.

I did notice a few typos. I have been writing all of my life and only recently have I found a tool that helps me a great deal with my writing. It is found at Grammarly.com. Though there is a paid version, the free version is a real help to me. It is browser based application and follows my writing and not my particular program I am in. In real-time it corrects punctuation, vocabulary, spelling, and improper use of words. You may want to check it out. I love it. Good job on your website. DAN

Hi grampamike, yes sure I am -- glad to meet you!
And I have to say that your comments and nuggets of gold is a great inspiration, that shows if we keep on working and implement what we learn to our blogs and pages we will finally get rewarded for our efforts.

That IS inspiring!

I haven't found any catch and I have stopped looking and put all my concentration in the training and putting into action what I learn. Maybe I do not manage to put all the training I have been through to good use, as some of the naterial need maturation before you really get it -- or mayeb I'm a little rusty and it is just me who need some time to get it -- but as long as we get results by following the training that's all that counts. And when we get it - rinze and repeat and the success is guaranteed!

Hi, glad to meet me, lol.

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for following me. I’m pretty impressed with WA training and I think we have found a gold mine of information. Hmmm, seems like geniuses like us tend to gather in the same place (lol).

You made a good choice coming to WA. I started making money online in 2004. WA wasn't around back then. I had to learn from scratch. What took me 2 years to accomplish online, you will be able to do in a couple of months if you are new to affiliate marketing.

The wealth of knowledge here in the tutorials and the help from fellow WA members is exceptional. I have never met a bunch of like-minded people who are so eager to help.

When I came to WA in February, I was skeptical. Seen enough online scams in my time. I searched high and low for "the catch." There was none. I learned WA is legitimate. There is no pressure to upsell me more products or services. That was refreshing.

Anyway Rolf, here’s wishing you all my best for your success with online marketing. Please feel free to send me a private message if there is anything I can do for you.
You can send me a private message if you have questions by going to my profile and clicking on the private message button; https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/grampamike

You may also want to check out my WA profile blog posts as there is some interesting and informative information there.
Here’s a little inspiration: Update: I wanted to mention that all my recent posts on my website get ranked in the top 5 for my keyword or keyword phrase. So study the tutorials here at WA. They hold the clues for getting top ranking for your web pages.

Hi John, show me the community spirit and visit rolfbratli.com and give me your best critique. I will then move forward and be on my way to success! That's what I want but I know that reality require me to put in the work to reach success. You and other's comments will help me on the way, but the changes that may lead me to success I have to make, you can only be the catalyst. But without the catalyst there may be no reaction, so the calyst (the feedback) is always the most important ingridience on the way to success.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Rolf!

Nathaniell here - you probably remember me from my site One More Cup of Coffee. I'm glad to see you've signed up and are ready to get started building your online business.

Right now, there are just two things you need to know.

1) Those who ask questions interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their goals. The support here at WA is the best in the internet marketing industry...please take advantage of it.

2) You can get started learning how to make money by doing your Level 1 Certification Course. Click on the green "Get Started Here" button or just click this link And don't forget that you can also access me for 1-on-1 support by leaving a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/nathaniell or by responding directly to this message.

There are a ton of other features you have access to right now, but they are explained in your main training linked above. Your #1 job right now is to get started on the first lesson.

PS. Did you know that you'll already have your website built by lesson 4? Crazy, I know!


★ ★ ★ Access Your Bonuses! ★ ★ ★

I also wanted to let you know that if you join the premium membership in this 7 day window you'll get a TON of awesome stuff from me.

First off, you'll get a 59% discount ($19.95 for 1 month) on your membership. Twenty bucks for you first month of WA is an absolute steal.

☆ ☆ Bonus #1: Live Case Study 2 Part Webinar Series

Get access to a 2-Part-Series Live Case Study webinar. It's video series where a professional internet marketer creates a complete 'niche website'. All steps are included and thoroughly explained, including research, rank, content creation and monetization. Total length of the videos is 2+ hours

This will give you a broad overview of the type of site you will create on Wealthy Affiliate. I think it's always a good idea to know the direction you are headed before you start your journey.


☆ ☆ Bonus #2: Top 5 Newbie Mistakes And How To Fix Them

This includes some simple design tips, and answers to the most frequently asked questions by new WA members. This resource will help you bypass these common errors and get your affiliate website ready for making money.

____

If you have any questions at all, don't hesitate to ask questions in Live Chat or on the training modules. I think you'll be surprised at how many people want to see you get started on the right foot!

Hi Nathaniell,

sure I remember you! Where is your today email course :)??

Joke aside, I have read with interest your first email and I am here as a starting member as you requested, and it seem to be a good advice! I am well into the second lesson and has also looked at the 6 methods of making money with WP blogs. I have browsed through the note of Ambassador for WA with "pay it forward" as a central theme -- something I can relate to.

And I will likely take you up on the offer of getting a ton of bonuses if I become a Premium Member (so you can get your bonus) -- and hopefully you can help me get set up properly, avoiding all newbie mistakes getting me to my utlimate goal of reaching $ 30,000 before 12 months have elapsed!

Thank you for directing me to WA - I am indebted to you for that. Later when I get me a website I will make a page about my life, showing that I have been through many phases during my kife, and I plan to be around for a long period still to achive some more things before I hit the bucket!

All the best for now

Sounds like a great plan Rolf! I see you already upgraded to premium, so you are on your way to reaching your goals. This is totally possible within 12 months, as long as you put in the work and make an effort to grow your business every day.

You are ready to roll into 2016 with a brand new online business! I hope that email gets to you soon :) If not, shoot me an email and I'll forward whichever ones you are missing.

Thanks again Nat!

And when do I get my bonuses (lol)...:-).

I have bought my first domain name to promote the affiliate program at WA -- "http://weatlthyaffiliatepromotion.com". My plan is to write about what is required to succeed online and then point them to the free offer from WA that includes all the stuff you need to operate an online business, like website builder, hosting, linktracking, keyword tool and keyword lists. It's only an autoresponder that is missing as far as I can see. But I would like to get your opinion before I go live with the website.

I will be back with more as I progresses throught the basic training and the Affiliate Bootcamp.
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Your bonuses were delivered by private message when you upgraded. They should be sitting in your inbox right now!

As for the domain, to be honest, I would avoid using the name "wealthy affiliate", as well as the word "promotion". You are basically telling poeple the moment they land on your website that the goal is to get them to buy a WA subscription.

Your #1 goal should be to help them! I think it will turn many people away and make you look biased.

I know it's a pain since you already bought the domain, but I want to see you get started on the right foot. Try to think of something a bit more of your own brand, or descriptive of what your goal is online. If you want to bounce around some ideas that's fine too!

Hi Nathaniell,
thank you for the advice. I also have rolf.bratli.com, and I was planning to use this to brand myself on the Internet. So maybe I will ditch the first one and go for my name.com and start telling the people about my journey into the Internet world, supported by the community in WA?
And I really want to help other people as my motto on my Skype account is:"Help others to help yourself".
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Using your name as a brand and helping people making money online via this brand is definitely possible. That's a route a lot of people take!
Reply
rolfkb Premium
Nathaniell, thanks for the private message, I am not always attentive to 'distractions' when I an focussed on something. My focus was the website and now it's live, see rolfbratli.com! It's not much only a little about my feelings of having managed to get the website up and running, and a little about myself.
I am looking at your bonuses now, and it is interesting to see the approach he take. I have only looked part one so it will be interesting to see part two.
