About Roybretton
Joined November 2014
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.

Thank you Roy. It is quite assuring to read a testimonial from someone with your exposure and experience about the internet business.
I have gotten my fingers burnt is some "online businesses", hence I was initially skeptic when I found WA. I am quite new here and still learning.
Hopefully someday soon, I will have a success story.
Very many thanks for following me, I am doing same for you.

Thanks for the follow Roy and I am following you back. It is so reassuring to read about you having gone through several of these affiliate programs and finding WA to be credible and be able to stand the test of time. I am very new to all this but have bookmarked your posts and training videos so that I can spend a lot of time going over them after I have completed my training. Thank you for offering so much help to us newbies and I wish you continued success in all your online businesses.

Hi Roy,
I am having a little trouble with my direction and keywords. I have put it out there and have gotten some answers but i think Im not asking the right questions. I am not getting the results from the training segment I should. My first direction yielded me QSR of 193. One member answered me this way...

"@Nicmar003 Its not a bad keyword but you can do better.

Your ideal would be

QSR under 100 and preferably a lot more.
Your Traffic over 100
Your SEO in the late 80's into the 90's.

I personally try to get my QSR under 50 and even lower to 10 or under and I have to say I can usually achieve this.

He sent me his list of blogs on the keyword subject but it is over my head at this point.

Hello Roy,
Thank you so much for the follow. Back at you, brother. I agree with you, follow the steps of the training. We will get there. Listen, study, apply, believe, and trust in something greater than our limited understanding and ourselves.
My true worth is measured by the worth I provide to people, especially to people I don't even know yet.
That changes with every post and ever reply like yours.
God bless you brother.
May our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, bless everything you do in your life.

Hi Roy, and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate,

We are so happy to have you inside of our wonderful community of action takers and wealthy affiliates.

Everything may look a little confusing and daunting to start with, but let me assure you this is the best program going around for average people just like you and me achieving financial success in a short amount of time.
I have been around internet marketing for several years now, and Wealthy Affiliate is by far the most informative with regards to training, there is so much to learn from the numerous training guides and videos.

Getting started is simple, but first things first, simply follow the links in the top left and get your account 100% setup, it only takes about 5 minutes. Make sure you complete your profile, including uploading a photo (this gives credibility and personality to your site), and if your budget allows I certainly recommend upgrading to Premium, it releases so much more in-depth training and resources.

Your next step is to start actually watching all the training videos, there are lots of them so take your time diegesting all the information, even watch them more than once so you have a grounded knowledge of each topic, this will pay dividends later on for you.
Indulge in conversing with other members, especially new ones, welcome them to WA and make them feel part of the WA family. Follow members that have something of interest to you, and I recommend following anyone back who initially follows you. This is how you build relationships and will hopefully lead to generating some income somewhere along the way.
I have been involved in Internet and Affiliate Marketing for several years now, and have a couple of personal websites that may be of interest to you. They are jam-packed full of information and training, and there is even some income-earning sites on there which are FREE to join should you desire. You can access them from my profile page.

Should you need any help, the whole community is here in your corner, as I am, so don't be shy to ask.

Again welcome, let's kick some goals together.

Kind regards,
Brian Rooney

Enjoy your day and have a great 2019.

Hello Gilbert,

Thank you take the time to write on my profile, I do appreciate it.

I'm glad that you can see the power of the Internet, I think if we can grasp this we are halfway there to making money online. Many people just do not understand the power of the Internet and with this type of mindset, one will never succeed.

Your English is correct and very good, my wife is from Greece so I understand the difficulties that learning another language can bring, I also appreciate the hard work involved in being able to learn another language.

I would like to wish you a very happy New Year and success in your online business, there are many people including myself who are more than willing to answer your questions.

Have a wonderful day.

Hi Roy, great to make your acquaintence. My story is a little bit different to yours.

Firstly, I live in Glastonbury, the town of the hippy. If you ever visit Glastonbury and would like to buy a new pair of shoes or maybe some discounted toiletries, FORGET IT!

If you want to purchase a pack of Tarot cards, a crystal ball and take a course of fortune telling then you are in the right place.

I had an online business 10 years ago, it was a worldwide property portal. It failed miserably because of my lack of knowledge in digital marketing and also the person that owned the franchise I brought the sites from was a no hoper.

So what has made me do this again?

I became so frustrated with employers, they want this that and the other from you for only minimum wage. The straw that broke the camel's back for me was when I was a night manager at a petrol station and I reported a smelly pump to the fire brigade and they visited the site within 5 minutes and advised me to close the site.

That did not go down very well with the company that owns the garage and I was fired.

ACAS Say that I would not have got anywhere as not only was I on a zero hours contract its apparently very hard to take a whistle blower case to court.

So now I have decided that the last 6 years of my working life I want to become successful online and teach others to do so.

Great talking to you Roy, speak soon.

Gary.

Hello Gary,

Thank you for taking the opportunity to connect, it's great to meet you, Gary!

It's interesting about what you're saying about Glastonbury, I have driven through Glastonbury and I'm aware it's been made a very hippie place for some reason, I'm not sure how it all came about! I have to say that I despise things like tarot cards et cetera, that's not to say that I don't like the people, as a Christian I know that these things are not good and should be discouraged, however, that's another story!

It's good that you tried an online business 10 years ago Gary because despite failing, I guess you learnt a terrific amount and this can be put to great use in the future, the most successful people fail regularly, but they carry on!

As you probably read in my profile, I learnt the hard way, but Wealthy Affiliate teaches you the correct way to make money online and you can literally earn as you learn, admittedly this doesn't happen instantly, but it really can happen over time.

I strongly recommend that you take this opportunity seriously because it really does work, there are many highly successful people here at Wealthy Affiliate. I would also recommend that you upgrade to premium as soon as you can, I actually went to premium immediately as I saw the benefits even though I was already making money online.

I'm sorry to hear about your trials with your employers, I'm fortunate in the fact that I have been self-employed since 1983, I actually used to do small jobs before I actually left school, which I feel is a big bonus in helping me get started. I always try and encourage people to work for themselves, I actually have an off-line business and an online business.

I am here to help you Gary, as are many others and I wish you every success and a great 2019.

Hello Veronica,

It's great to connect with you and great to see you here at Wealthy Affiliate.

The training is very important, I am actually going through the training right now, I have been here for four years but I haven't actually completed the training. There is a reason for this and that is because I was already making money online when I first came here, but I liked the idea of being part of a like-minded community.

However, the training here is absolutely fantastic and if you are new to Internet marketing I would definitely recommend that you go through all the training step-by-step and take action every step of the way. This is a very quick way to start making money online. The training is created in such a way that after every video or training session there are action points to complete, so in this way you are learning and growing your business all at the same time, fantastic!

I'm really enjoying going through the training, one thing I know for sure is that however much we think we might know we can always learn more.

Wishing you every success Veronica and a great weekend.

Hello Jessica, thank you for following me, I do appreciate it. Thank you for your very kind words too! I have good news for you, Jessica, you have found a great place to learn how to make money online the correct way!

I learnt the hard way back in 2004, it took me until 2007 before I had my first moneymaking website, it also cost me a lot of money to get to that point as I was buying into scam products that didn't do what they said on the package, I was actually working blind!

If you follow the Wealthy Affiliate training step-by-step, ask questions along the way and take action and be consistent, you will be successful. You do not need to buy anything else at this stage, all you need to do is follow the training and you will learn the correct way to make money online.

Wishing you every success and looking forward to seeing you grow your online business.

Although I have learnt a lot over the years, I am actually going through the Wealthy Affiliate training and I'm learning new things.

I think it is excellent how the training takes you through each step with exercises to help you move forward and to put the training into practical action well growing your business at the same time.

It's great to connect with you David.

Hi Roy
Many thanks for connecting with me and the follow.
Great to read about your story and success with online business.
I’m just starting out on this fascinating internet journey, learning lots about affiliate marketing and I just wish I had shown more of an interest years ago. I even had my own website back in 1999 but like many, had it done by a friend and I didn’t really understand a lot about the extreme power of a good website.
As I always say though, it’s never too late and even at my age of 51, I know I can still make money from this great business.
Being in the UK, I’m keen to stay in touch with you and learn from your experiences.
Kind regards Rob.

Hi Roy, you said you saw many miracles
Years ago in real estate
I had a client who was a contractor and not very religious.
However one day when I had an offer on one of his properties he told a story of how on one occasion while on his way to give an estimate he broke his right hand .
I won't get into the details , so before he went to his next estimate he went to his doctor who examined his swollen writing hand and told him it looks broken alright and sent him for an xray .

To the next estimate my client the contractor went.
This time his customer was a church.
As the priest of the church greeted the fumbling contractor trying to write info with his left non writing hand he asked what's the matter ?
The contractor told him he had just come from the doctors office cause he thinks his right hand was broken in the morning and was very swollen .
The priest who advertised in the local papers that miracles were performed weekly, said to the contractor do you believe in God?
My client said well I don't know ? The priest said if you do I can help you .
My client the contractor said ,well, I believe in a higher power and with that the preist got down on one knee and gently held my clients hand and prayed.

My client never remembered feeling anything but by the time he got home which was about an hour the swelling in his sore hand had gone down considerably .
By dinner time he was able to cut and eat his food and there was almost no swelling.
By morning his hand was completely normal.
Then the doctor called and said he better come to his office immediately because the xray showed his hand was broken in 3 places.
My client said my hand is fine iam able to move my fingers and there is no swelling or pain.
The doctor was confused and demanded he come at once, so he did and told the doctor what the priest had done.
The doctor was amazed but had my client take another xray.
The next day he went to see the doctor and the doctor showed him the xray and in plain view he saw his hand had been broken alright in 3 places but there was also 3 white healing lines right over the breaks.
The doctor admitted it's a miracle how this happened was the only explanation but my client said he had a lot more faith of a higher presence than before !

I thought you might like this story but iam sure you have seen many , all the best !

Hello Rod,

Thanks for taking the time to comment, I do appreciate it.

There are some beautiful places in the United Kingdom and I feel very privileged to live in such a nice area. Yesterday, I had to go to East London to do a job and it made me feel even more grateful for where I live! I hope you can visit one day Rod, it sounds like you have visited the United Kingdom in the past.

I have constantly made money online since 2007 Rod, I also have a successful off-line business which takes quite a bit of my time, but I do actually enjoy it. Long term I would like to be working online full-time is like the idea of being able to work from anywhere in the world and for many other reasons too!

Wishing you every success and a really enjoyable day.

Hello Roy

Yes a lot of the online up and coming professionals have it a LOT easier with the WA Platform, but having some "WEB Masters" to drawn upon along the way softens the learning curb and hopefully less expensive mistakes.
Thanks for reaching out Roy and will follow you back, would like to wish you continued success going forward.

Thanks for the follow Roy. Given your background in Agriculture, Forestry, and Horticulture, I may have as many questions for you about that as I do about affiliate marketing.

My fiancé and I are beginning a pasture-based farming endeavor. I have a bit of background in the veterinary field and raising livestock, but I have a lot to learn in the horticulture and forestry department.

We have around 200 total acres, 80 hectares, with about 15% of that currently in usable pasture. The plan is to open up quite a bit more for grazing using an agroforestry model. Something I have researched quite a bit, but we're near the point where we have to execute some of these ideas.

It is exciting, but when you make a mistake cutting trees, it takes awhile to regrow the mistake.

Best of Luck to you, and I will be following you closely.

Cheers,
Haven

Hello Haven,

Thank you for connecting with me, I do appreciate it. It sounds extremely interesting in what you are doing, agriculture has always fascinated me! As we know, farming practices are different all over the world, which makes it even more interesting.

It's great that you want to run the two businesses side-by-side, I believe that this could work well.

Enjoy your day and kindest regards,

I appreciate you adding me to your network, Roy.

I find it interesting when people state how many years they had been researching online businesses; I never did. Perhaps, I always thought that was only for the "techies". How incredible that we have access to a platform where the techie and newbies can all live in harmony!

All the best to you, Roy.

I think you have a great plan and idea Paul, I still have an off-line business which I enjoy, but as I get older I probably won't want quite so much physical work, as much as I like being outside. I plan to do go the same way, Paul.

Hello Jacob, thank you for taking the time to comment and to follow me, I do appreciate it. I've just been reading your profile and it is great to see that you are a pastor, you probably have one of the hardest jobs in the world, but at the same time its is great to be able to help people. I used to be part of Kensington Temple Church in London, it's a great church, I also attended their Bible school, which was a great privilege. My faith means a lot to me and as the Bible says, "only believe"!

I would really like to encourage you to go through the training here at Wealthy Affiliate and to take action along the way. The principles taught here really do work and like any business, we have to work, off-line or online but I believe that all things are possible for those who believe, but we have to take action too.

All the best to you Jacob and please feel free to contact me anytime.

Hi Roy

Thank for the follow appreciated.
I certainly agree with you in a part of your comment for new members and that is to follow the lessons given step by step I too learnt the hard way by skipping a few parts only to find out the hard way.
I learnt the hard way as well because I felt that a lesson didn't apply to me so I skip them at the start that was my downfall and took me longer to get back on track


Wishing you continued success going forward.

Hello Andrej,

Thank you for taking the time to comment on my profile, I do appreciate it.

I definitely think going through training step-by-step is the best way forward. I haven't actually gone through the training yet as I started making money on the back in 2007, so I had quite a good idea of what to do before I joined Wealthy Affiliate. I'm in the process of going through the training and it really is excellent training.

I wish you every success and I look forward to connecting with you.

Good Morning Roy,

When I was 16 years old I went to 2 different schools in England.
During this year in the UK, I did visit some places but not as many as I would have liked.
I do know Greece as I worked for 3 months on a Greek cruise ship. I have fond memories of the beautiful islands but not of the captain as he was awful.
In one of my older posts, I told the story of the Spanish priest and the world library. Have a look as unusual and also perhaps helpful documents can be found there. www.wdl.org.

HI Roybretton,

Reading your profile I would take it that with your agriculture, horticulture and forestry background that you also know a bit or two about Aquaponics. I have a small system up and running I love the fact I can literally walk out my back door and pick fresh organically grown produce. And I also know, the fish I will be eating soon (currently only about 4" long and weighting in at 50-60 g) were raised in contaminate free water. I think eventually one of my niche online websites will be an aquaponic oriented store.

The best of luck to you sir,

Hello Calvin,

Thank you for your interesting comments, Calvin, I do appreciate it! I have to say that Aqua phonics is not something that I know a huge amount about the subject, however, my Webmaster often talks about it as he has an interest in it. I think I could have more of an interest if I had more time, but life is quite busy at the moment, but it may well be something that I will look at in the future.

I am now following you and I look forward to connecting with you.

Enjoy your weekend and kindest regards,

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.

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.

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.

Dear Roy,
Good to meet you. We have a lot in common. I live in the county, on a 20-acre hilltop in Eastern WA. I have been writing bits and pieces about my website in my journal for a year.
I currently teach Sunday School to little ones. 7 to 10-year-olds. I have a profound faith that has been my guiding light in life.
I have also Homeschooled all my kids and currently, homeschooling my seven-year-old grandchild. She is the angel in my life. It appears she will be coming to live with us.
I grew up in Switzerland speaking French and German, English is my third Language. I was born in the US and returned to this country for college.
I run a successful insurance business focused on health care for ten years, but found it was taking me away from family life all to often, so I sold it.
I Have spent a year wandering around the internet looking for a home, to set up my website, and another business, online. So many of the forums I found were just plain scummy. Wanting money, then more money, I detected the scams were coming and ran.
I started this journey for extra money for the kids, to help with their college expenses, and I wanted to travel, again. But now I find myself in a situation, where the extra money will be needed. I husband has become gravely ill and is now on dialysis, this has all happen in the last month. The prospect of raising yet another child will require extra money. I have given up my volunteer position with Red Cross And made Wealthy Affiliates a full-time business venture. The decision coming to WA is the best bussiness decision I've made. I love the training, and the community is unbelievable. I am trying very hard to get my first site up and running. I am stuck on menus and widgets. I choose the WordPress theme of "twenty twelve". I want my headers on top. So long story short I picked up a copy of WordPress for Dummies. Which I will be reading tonight.
I didn't mean to talk your ear off; I just felt your sprite and started writing. One of the reasons I love this community.
I look forward to getting to know you

Wealthy Affiliate certainly is a great community and I wished I had known about this platform years ago when I started back in 2004 researching Internet marketing, it would have saved me a lot of money!

I appreciate that you may feel out of depth, I remember when I had my first website built which was for my off-line business and I knew very little about the technicalities of a website, but over the years we do learn. I would follow the training step-by-step and I believe you will be pleasantly surprised how quickly you can learn things, having the right training is so important and you will receive good training here at Wealthy Affiliate.

Hello and thanks for the follow. It's nice meeting you. I live in Suffolk County NY. Named after your Suffolk. As you can see by my bio I am in the process of retiring from a business I had for over 35 years and am hoping to make a substantial income online. Having someone like you with your online experience and accomplishments in my network is what will help me accomplish my goals. My online experiences come from MLM businesses I worked thru the years and ads and blogs that brought traffic to my carpet cleaning website.

Hello Gregor,

Thanks for taking the time to connect and even better, it's great to hear that you are a Christian, there are actually quite a few of us here. Wealthy Affiliate is a great place to connect with like minded people and to learn from each other's experience.

I started researching Internet marketing back in 2004 and I had my first moneymaking website back in 2007. I learnt the hard way, through buying products that didn't actually do what they said on the package, having said this some of them did work and I learnt a terrific amount in the early days.

I will always recommend Wealthy Affiliate to anyone who wants to start an online business, it really is a great place to learn and a great place to connect with people. And I know that the principles work. I have learnt a lot over the years but I have realised that we never stop learning, I ask many questions on wealthy affiliate and I also reply to some questions, it's great to be able to encourage each other.

Looking forward to connecting with you and I wish you every success.

Hi Roy, Congratulations being on your 50 top.
I recently upgraded to premium and already stocked in making content. Very hard for me. I want to focus on my niche which is the accommodation and travel activities in Victoria, Australia where I live in. But, my major question is, if we aim to direct audience through our website to major well known websites and we won't host and do the main job for them?
If so, based on my niche, any ideas you offer I could enhance my content?
Because google found my content as duplicated.

Regarding your question, I would sign up for the various travel affiliate programs, first of all, I would make sure that you complete the training here at Wealthy Affiliate, you should not be having issues with duplicate content. It is probably a good idea to put your question up on the main forum where you will receive many replies.

Enjoy your day.

Hello Roy!

I'm very happy you connected with me. Thank you so much!
Of course I follow you back.

Yes, England is very beautiful. I visited London twice, and last year my husband and I traveled around in Cornwall. We will definitively visit England again. Love the magnificent gardens and the exciting castles and their history.

You're a member of WA since long. You've got a great experience. I surely can learn a lot from you.

All the best,
:-) Pernilla

Thank you Pernilla, I appreciate the follow back!

I'm glad you liked England and I'm pleased that you were able to visit other places, rather than just London because we do have some amazing countryside and interesting market towns and villages.

I have been working online since 2007 but started researching the hard way in 2004. The amazing thing is that we never stop learning and I really enjoyed being in a community of like-minded people where we can help each other.

Enjoy your day.

Thanks for following me. WA is like this shiny new thing with lots of mystery. I have struggled to learn the art of writing copy and at 52yo I'm having a hard time with it, had slowed up this week and had some personal coaching about this and really mining into my goals. so I'm off to finish my next post that I have been stuck on. Have found it very easy to do a daily pictorial blog on google plus but I don't think it's a platform to earn money, I presume it will be a funnel.
thanks for listening

Hello David, it is really good to connect with you, I am pleased that you have joined a genuine community of helpful people. There are many successful people here, which we can all learn from.

I would just go through the training step by step, it is a lot of work but it pays off.

Enjoy your weekend,

Roy

Hi Roy - nice to connect with you - I was reading an post from April 2017 that you wrote about success with classified ads - do you use them for your online business too or just your offline business? I know you are in the UK so things may be different. Just looking for some insight. Thanks in advance for your response.

Hello Heather, it's good to connect with you, I am now following you. At the moment I'm using Gumtree classified ads for my off-line business and they are paid ads, but they are actually working for me. I would like to experiment with using classified ads for my online business. I will try and write a blog post about this when I experiment, although it won't be immediately.

Enjoy your day.

I appreciate you getting back to me - still looking at possibly doing some classifieds. We will see. If I do it - I will write a blog on my experiment too!

Roybretton Premium
Thank you for your reply, Heather, it would be good to hear how you get on with your classifieds. I believe that Craigslist in the US is huge, I think we do have it in the UK, but I believe that it is not very popular here, I certainly don't use it.

Enjoy your day.

Love your updated bio - I love connecting with people from around the world through WA! I have been wanting to go to London to visit the Queen one of these days, I'll have to hit you up for some tips when I finally get over to your Island. I was raised on a different island - Hawaii, but I live in the San Francisco Bay area in California now. The other thing I would love to do when I get to London is to go to Hillsong Church - I love their worship! Blessings to you and thanks for inspiring this newbie. ;)

Hello Pamela, thank you for your message, the Internet is an amazing place to meet all sorts of people from around the globe. I hope you are able to come to England one day, it is a beautiful place and I am very privileged to live where I do. I haven't been to ill solve for many years, you may like to try my church, which is Kensington Temple, a large Pentecostal church with great teachings!

I wish you every success in what you're doing and I look forward to connecting with you.

Dear Roy. I thank you so much for adding me to your following. As a newbie in internet marketing, I will benefit from your vast wealth of experience. I enjoyed reading your profile. I find it such a great inspiration. I also grew up at the countryside, this side of the planet called Africa. We have perhaps enjoyed the same privileges of countryside life. I hope to interact more with you soon! Wishing you much more success at WA!

Thank you for your message Ssemanda, I do appreciate it. I have never been to Africa, but I very much like the African people, the church that I am connected with has a huge number of Africans! I'm glad that you enjoy the countryside, I love the piece and tranquillity.

Enjoy your day.

It was good to read about your struggles and success. I too have fallen for some scam that cost me several thousands of dollars. Lessons learned. It sounds lovely where you live. Unfortunately, we still have snow on the ground. Do you have any thoughts on the best way to use email as a way of building traffic around your website?

Hello Patricia, thank you for your comment. I think many of us here at Wealthy Affiliate have purchased scam products at some point in our lives. I feel very privileged to live in such a beautiful area, I enjoy watching things grow.

I know that it is very important to grow your email list and it is explained in the training. You may find this video helpful from Jay, here is the link: Enjoy your day.

I always enjoy reading about other members, how they have come to be where they are and what their vision is for the future. Yours is no exception Roy.

Incidentally I lived in London for a good few years and loved visiting your neck of the woods. It is a great place for walking which I also love.

Thanks for sharing your inspiring story so far. Wishing you every success ahead.

Hello Mark,

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile update, I do appreciate you. I hear you, Mark, as to regard reading other people's profiles, it's interesting to hear success stories and struggles to be fair.

I am glad that you have discovered my part of the world, there are some absolutely beautiful places in the United Kingdom. Every time I drive around or walk across the fields, I see the beauty, whether it be in the middle of winter or springtime.

Wishing you lots of success Mark and I appreciate you taking the time to read my profile.

Hi Roy great read ! Lovely to meet with someone from the UK like myself, I’m from Nottinghamshire (not as green here unfortunately!) and only just joined. Like you experienced I’ve gone through the ‘scam’ mill too.. but I did learn in the process so not all bad. I came across WA some years ago actually and now I’m kicking myself for not starting earlier. Not to worry though I’m here now and raring to go.. Thank you for inspiring words :-)

Hello Roybretton,
I love your country and stayed there ( a stop before Chrystal Palace by train) for approximately 1.5 yr to get a master in economics and my son got terribly sick ( 1 yr old by that time). I haven't being there since I plan to return as I always had great time in London.
Appreciate your note to be following myself .
Cheers

Good morning Marcus,

Thank you for your message, it is great to connect with you. I'm glad you enjoyed coming to the UK. I don't know if you've visited other places in the UK or just stay in London? I live outside London fortunately on the Essex and Suffolk border, in a very beautiful village, there are some beautiful places all around the UK. The only problem with the UK is the weather, however it's a fantastic place when the weather is right!

Enjoy your day,

Roy

I lived in a very , very nice small place as I said 2 train stops from Chrystal palace where neighbors were fantastic. Use to wake up to go jogging daily and the only inconvenience was the rain really.

Thanks for the follow, Roy. Am new to WA. You might be able to answer some my questions. Living my home area, Youngstown, Ohio. Was all over the Indian Ocean and South Pacific during my 10 years in the Navy. One my hobbies is Christian Eschatology, ie., study of biblical 'End Times' prophecy. Know allot about that.

Hello William, thank you for taking the time to comment, I do appreciate it. As for your question, it sounds like a very interesting subject, I have heard John Hagee speak on end times and it really is very fascinating. I don't know vast amounts on the subject, but I do believe the time is getting nearer, quite quickly too! I do think it is very important to find a niche that you are passionate about and it sounds like you are passionate about this niche William. I would go for it, you are passionate about something, it is so much easier to write easily. I can't think of anything worse than trying to write about something that we are not passionate about. I hope this helps.

Enjoy your day.

Roy

There exist on this internet numerous websites (endtime.com, etc.) and a ton of commentary about this niche. The problem is: they error! I have the inside CORRECT INFO. and could set them all straight! But, it wouldn't MAKE ANY MONEY FOR ME!
Reply
Roybretton Premium
I believe that any time Scripture is extremely interesting and fascinating, but it is a very difficult subject and many people have different opinions! I try not to focus too much on end time teaching, however interesting it may be, the main thing is that we have faith in God and to believe! If you feel that you have good knowledge of the subject, this would bring people to your website and you could monetise it with, for example, Google AdSense, sell books and build from there. Have you been through any of the training videos yet William?

Enjoy your day.

Thanks Roy. What you just posted did finally occur to me. A number of good books on this niche could be sold! Brilliant! Books like: The Prophecies Of Saint Malachy, Petras Romanus, etc. But, I would want my theme to look the part. Say, a picture of Pope Frances (biblical false prophet) and a pic of a personification of the anti-christ. It would have to be custom made. Is there a way to do that? Kyle says we have to choose from their themes.

Hi Roy, your words are very encouraging. I have always been intimidated by the internet. However, I've decided not to become a dinosaur and dive in. When I came across Wealthy Affiliate I decided to give it a try. Everyone is so positive and helpful. Reading all the questions and comments, I feel less intimidated. I feel part of a community.

Starting this online business is very important to me. It is my intention to quit my day job and work for myself.

Thanks:)

Hi Felicia,

Wealthy Affiliate is a great place to learn about Internet marketing, if I had found this program earlier in my life, it would have saved me a lot of money. When I first started working online I was buying spam products, not deliberately, I was just eager to learn about Internet marketing.

If you go through the videos step-by-step and ask questions along the way, you will be successful. Just remember that with any business, it takes time to get started and remember that an online business is no different to an off-line business, in respect that it takes time and effort.

Enjoy your weekend.

Good morning, Roy. I just saw your comment on Alan Hocking's post that you are in the UK so I came to connect with you. I am also in the UK.

I didn't apply for Kyle's Super Affiliate programme, but it'll be interesting to read the posts in the evening. Would be really interested to know how many people Kyle has chosen, how he is going to mentor them etc.

Anyway, I am now motivated to go to the training and succeed regardless...

Best wishes from Oxford,
Isabella
