About Rwstretch
Joined July 2017
Social Media Influencer - Digital Marketer - Ecommerce & Shopify Partner

Welcome to my Bio!
My name is Ross Stretch, I'm a thirty-one year old Canadian born and raised in British Columbia.

Recovery & Mental health are my niches and have proved to be rewarding in using my story to help others and brand myself as a social media influencer.

I have currently been involved in online and network marketing for roughly a year now, 6 months ago I launched an online brand and e-commerce store that quickly launched and scaled into three other niches.

Wealthy affiliate provided me with a raw understanding of the work involved to blog and rank under associated keyword research. Using Shopify to run my stores I was quickly able to merge the best of both platforms and continually build, develop and manage other client stores as well as manage their social media marketing through my own (SMMA) social media marketing agency.

I'm so VERY Glad to meet you...!!!
Mental Health and Recovery are my Greatest Goals as well...
I'm using the money, when I get it, to fund a local Mental Health Facility in my Little Town of Mountain Home Arkansas, to get people who are without any way of Receiving Help, to get the Help they so Desperately Need...
Thank You for Caring...!!!
Sincerely,
Lee M Alman

Very glad and inspired to meet you as well!
Mental health and recovery have become a very dear cause to me because I suffered for close to a decade before I was able to get help. Much of my online business has enabled me to keep busy and to further my sobriety time, If I didnt have my online work I don't think It would have been as achievable as it is.
I hope to one day do the same and either help fund or build one of my own for those who need the services and cant afford to get help. All the best to you here, if you need anything at all please feel free to reach out!

Thanks for the follow and good luck at WA. You are the 2nd person I have seen who does the "social media influencer" gig. So do you make a media kit and do that route instead of CV and resume. I have made a note to make me a media kit and do this. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Hi Ross thanks for following me. I have a question for you. I am researching into drop shipping. For a newbie wanting to start a drop shipping business, where should one start?

I know I can open up either woocomerce or shopify, which one is easier?

So when I find the drop shipper, do I do the shopping for my customers or just call the drop shipper and tell them, I got a customer who wants that merchandise?

Sorry for the dumb questions. TIA. And I'm following you.
Reply
Rwstretch Premium
No dumb questions at all,

I highly recommend going with Shopify, purchase your domain through them and you will have no issues. Drop shipping is as simple as finding the products you want and featuring them entirely through your store. When you sell a product or it is ordered everything is automated right to packaging, completely handsfree and shipped right to the customer.

For example, some of my apparel designs are my own, I take care of logo placement and such the companies just keep copies of your files and print as its shipped, you'll never have to keep overhead unless you start making your own shoes or jackets or such. But that's down the road :) possibilities are endless!

Shopify has their own website builder that works a lot simpler and is geared right to e-commerce so there is no hassle and pure simplicity. If you have any more questions dont be shy!

Hello Ross and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep referring back to the training, but if you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 400+ blogs I have published within WA.

You can always get in touch with me as well.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great Saturday.

Thank you for taking the time and stopping in Bob,

This whole experience has been something great for me. It started with just stumbling onto the site last year and I mean as much as I came to find ways to make income.

I surely stayed just as much for the self-development and the paces it made accountable to do. Let's face it how many programs do we actually pay for that will teach us real applicable knowledge and even gives us all the staples to do so, definitely couldn't have come for me at a better time.

If you need anything at all brother don't hesitate to reach out I'm always online.

Hi ross and thanks for reaching me. I am now studying on niche and which will suit the best for me.

If I understand well, could be meant in two ways:

A specific product category such as speakers.
A product category focalized on one charateristic such as "tech gadgets" as speakers, drones and so on.

Does this make sense?

Hi Don!,

Yes family is super important even more so nowadays good family bonds are all we have in this world! You are in good hands here with WA, essentially I too was fresh out of the gate her in July. I had a small understanding and some experience. Nothing like what i was able to stream line here, this is truly something else. If you ever have any issues get in touch with me even if its just for an opinion. I don't mind at all, if there is anything WA affirmed more with me its the importance of networking, this will see you success all on its on in most aspects in life and most certainly here. I have some training available as well, I'll link to your profile.

Hi Ross.
Thanks for such amazing advice and wisdom. I read every word and more importantly, I heard you "loud and clear."

Like you, I have discovered my potential (for writing) having joined WA. I know it was there but the platform pulled it out of me.
I had intended to go one direction but ended up going another, as passion began to lead me "astray."

Thanks for connecting. Looking forward to going through the training.

Always good to have a Top 100 drop in my Brother! It's nice to see and meet more Canadians on here. Especially when you get real solid responses and get to meet more solid folk like yourself. I hear you about being on the warpath dude. It has been a really stellar experience here and It's almost addicting. I find the nights are my time to shine, just tune it all out and let go.

All the best to you brother! If you ever need anything don't be shy!

Hiya Ross,

First, I hardheartedly love any opportunity to use the word "whilst', well played! I'm pretty new to WA and find myself struggling to stay focused and get through the lessons. Any advice? Training myself to not get distracted whilst working them from home is proving more difficult than I thought it would be. Do you allocate a specific amount of time daily at a set time? I currently have a M-F day job, wondering my best plan of attack~ :)

Haha , glad someone enjoyed that :) , Well little lady if you would like I do Live feeds from Facebook in the evening to help anyone and your more then welcome to join the training can get to be very mundane and its hard to hang in there so I suggest just taking micro breaks lots of them. What I use to do was hook my phone up or my laptop to a Bluetooth speaker allowing me to roam around and do menial things around the house while still being engaged I think I retained more living vicariously through what they are saying while doing anything helped me to retain the information and also complete it at a quicker rate.

(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well Ross and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)
