About Roybretton

Updated 9th April, 2018

I am from the United Kingdom and live in a village in North West Essex about 55 miles outside central London, we are not far from the Suffolk border, it's a beautiful place to live! In fact, there are more trees than people!.I have been involved with agriculture, horticulture and forestry work for much of my life and I have been working online since 2007.

I started researching the Internet back in 2004 and purchased many scam products that didn't actually do what they said they would! However, I did learn a lot throughout the process and some of the products did work okay, but it certainly cost me a lot of money! In fact thousands!

I had my first moneymaking website, built back in 2007, it was a Google AdSense site mainly, but I also had some affiliate links which were dramatically increased as time went on. I actually made a sale the very first day that the website went live, which is always very encouraging. Within a very short time, I was earning a monthly three figure sum from Google AdSense, the power of the Internet never fails to amaze me.

The power of the Internet has always fascinated me and I find it amazing how we can connect with so many people that only a few years ago, it would have been totally different; what takes one week now would have probably taken a lifetime only a few years ago!

I am looking forward to being part of this membership site, I also belong to another membership site, where I have been a member for about four years. (I'm no longer a member of this particular site, just a member of Wealthy Affiliate now!) I like the idea of being able to stay up-to-date with Internet marketing and technology, it's great to be able to ask a question and to hopefully answer some questions. I'm looking forward to being part of Wealthy Affiliate and growing my Internet business, which I eventually want to be working full-time.

My interests include countryside, music, reading, walking and much more, I am also part of a large Bible believing Pentecostal church in London, where I also attended their Bible school. I have a strong faith and have been privileged to have seen the miraculous many times.

I recently started a new off-line business which I started from scratch, I literally had no work, but within eighteen months my income has skyrocketed. The reason I'm saying this is because a lot of the principles taught in Wealthy Affiliate have helped me achieve my success.

If you're reading this and you are new to Wealthy Affiliate, please go through the training step-by-step, I learnt the hard way and expensive way, but if you go through the videos step-by-step, ask questions and take action, you will be successful.

I have made some great connections here at Wealthy Affiliate and it is a great pleasure and privilege to hear about the success stories and watch people grow their business.

I have also been very privileged to have found an excellent Webmaster over seven years ago who has been a great help and became a very good friend. We have done quite a few projects together and will be doing many more in the future.

Please feel free to connect with me on social media and here at Wealthy Affiliate.

Thank you for reading.

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 Roy! :)

Hello Henry,

It's good to see you here Henry, thanks for taking the time to comment. Everything takes time, but I am getting there! I have an off-line business and online business, so I keep very busy.

Wishing all the best.

Hello Steve,

I guess your comment was meant more for me rather than Henry?

I started an off-line business almost 3 years ago and by the seventh month, I had reached five figures a month. I have owned a few off-line businesses as well as online businesses. However, I was able to reach my goals with the present off-line business, by utilising the power of the Internet.

Without the power of the Internet I would not have been able to get to this stage so quickly, in fact, I may not have even arrived at this stage at all.

I can remember before the Internet having to advertise in various newspapers and magazines to try and get found. It is absolutely amazing how the Internet has given us the ability to promote our off-line business and online businesses.

I had my first moneymaking website back in 2007, I learned the hard way by buying into very poor products that literally cost me thousands! Wealthy Affiliate teaches you the correct way to make money online, follow the training, ask questions, work hard and you will be successful.

Wishing you all the best.

Hi Roy, thanks for the follow as i will do the same. I was delayed due to a compromise in my data cause of a former roommate. I love the UK as i have been many times to London. Great city and even the surburbs are super nice with very friendly people.

Hi Helko, it's great to connect with you, I'm glad you enjoyed UK, I can't say that I'm a great lover of London, being a countryman, but the UK has some beautiful places, I'm fortunate to live in a village with plenty of green fields around me!

I wish you every success with your new venture.

Hello Roy,
Thanks very much for 'following me' on WA. I'm now following you as well. You certainly have an interesting background and have established yourself as an experienced online business professional.

While I have a great deal of business experience, it's primarily in areas other than 'online' related. I'm a Newbie at WA and I'm motivated to learn all I can about affiliate marketing and other online businesses.

I will welcome the opportunity to network with you in the future and offer mutual assistance whenever possible.

Cheers,
Dave

It's great that you have a lot of business experience and I'm always very keen to connect with people like yourself. Although I have worked for myself for many years, I still feel that I have a lot to learn.

I really look forward to connecting with you and sharing ideas et cetera.

Enjoy your day.

Hi Roy,

Cheers mate and thanks for the follow.

The internet is just mind-blowing. I compare it to the universe and the terminology "cyberspace" is a classic description and association with the universe.

Roy, I would like to extend my best wishes to you for both your health and wealth and will see you along the journey through WA.

Incidentally, have you heard of a man called Angus Buchan, I have a couple of his devotional books and the film, "Faith like Potatoes", a great man of God!

Dear Roy,
It was great to read your blog and know that you are also a fellow believer. I am still struggling to get my first website off the ground but will continue to persevere with the course. My motivation strengths ebb and flow at times. I would be grateful for any assistance and support in achieving success you and other W.A. are able to offer. Thank you for offering to follow me. I will also offer to help and offer support/guidance where I am able. I need to learn to be more patient and determined in my endeavours.

Hello Alan,

Thank you for taking time to comment on my profile page, I do appreciate it. It's great to hear that you are a believer, there are quite a few of us here.

I think all of us probably suffer from different levels of motivation at times, but I would say is try and do something every day, however small it may be, to try and move your business forward. If you can go through the training, step-by-step, ask questions along the way and take action, you will see progress.

I've been self-employed since 1983 and I know that any business takes time to develop, whether it be off-line or online. So try and be patient, take action and stay positive.

You may find some of my blog posts helpful, which explains part of my journey.

Enjoy your day.

Roy

Thanks very much for responding, I have received some quite challenging feedbacks on my current website which I did request but it did make me consider whether I have taken on too much, and need to start afresh with a new website niche.Despite this your words have been very encouraging to me to not give up or feel too overwhelmed by all that is needed to pursue this. I am still learning how to receive all the feedback/comments as " golden opportunities " improve my skills at building a success on-line business and build consistent trust with all my visitors and potential customers. Thanks once again for your interest and support.
