About Sammy-B
Joined February 2018
Hi, I'm Beate, but many people call me Sammy. I don't really have a preference but people often find it easier to remember my nickname.
In the past, I worked in the hospitality industry and in education but became a freelance translator when my daughter was born. I love being my own boss and like to learn new skills and new challenges.
I've always been interested in marketing but never had the opportunity to get right into it. So having the chance to find out about online and affiliate marketing in my own time - and to try it out - is very exciting.
My goal is to create a lifestyle that gives me maximum freedom and more time for charitable projects.

Hello Sammy-B, nice to read your profile here on WA. It seems we have a lot in common. May we both create the maximum freedom lifestyle! There are so many opportunities for outreach and engaging with others through charitable projects--doing work that matters and directly influences the lives of others.

Best wishes,

Jamie

Thanks for following me, Sammy.

I'm new to WA. I went Premium May 4 (Joined April 22). I'm here at WA to learn how to supplement my fixed income.

I went Yearly June 1 2018. I'm excited about dedicating myself for a year. I hope to have the same success you have had with WA. Thanks for inspiring newcomers to pursue their dreams. You are definitely a marketer to watch. I have added your name to my notebook.

Congratulations for being in the Top 200.

Thanks for reaching out to a newcomer.

All the best,

Louisa

Greetings>Sammy,

Recently we have corresponded through Kaju"s post on the "Tree of Knowledge", Intrigued by your comment I decided to visit your profile page to learn more about you.

Having read a few of your comments down below I am pleased to have made the effort as I truly believe I learn and feel more connected to the process here at WA by utilizing this "follow feature.

The idea that learning to communicate well with others is all about being engaged, is significant to the mind-set that brings us an audience and traffic that returns in the future...So I practice this socialization and have experienced growth in my skill as a writer and in understanding the online experience we all share.

And finally, Sammy, we share a connection I believe seeing others in the world as part of the whole life experience, interconnected to our own well-being by virtue of giving of ourselves for their benefit in selfless acts of kindness.

Believe me when I say I have witnessed change in peoples outlook for the day with even a simple smile. Silly as that may seem to hang ones hat on for a happiness, it is what I do and makes all the more reason for enjoying my life.

O.K. So I'll make this short...thank-you for being here to share the journey, I look forward to reading and learning by your thoughts and progress...be brilliant!

Respectfully David

Thank you for connecting and sharing your thoughts with me, David. I think you have a very thoughtful and caring approach to the WA journey.
I completely agree that being engaged in the WA community is an excellent way of practising social and communication skills and feeling more connected with the process here.
You learn about so many different ideas and viewpoints that it becomes easier to write for an audience when working on your website. So it's a very beneficial interaction.
I really like what you said about changing people's outlook for the day with a simple smile. It's so important to give a bit of positivity to people. If you can contribute to a little bit of happiness, it makes your life so much more enjoyable.
I look forward to exchanging more ideas with you in the future.
All the best
Sammy

Good afternoon Beate,

Thank you for the follow. I am sending you a link of one of my WA posts where you can read I am a bit incognito these past months, meaning I am hardly active, I hope you understand.
I have followed you back and wish you lots of success with your online journey. Regards, Taetske

Sammy-B Premium
Thank you, Taetske, and also thanks for following me back.
I think it's a good decision to focus on your two websites for the moment and to prioritise working on them. Socializing on WA does take up a lot of time and can wait until you feel on top of things. I'm not overly active either, for the same reason. When time is limited, this is what you need to do.
Have a creative and productive break! I look forward to being in touch with you again.

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

You must keep up with the training and keep referring to it 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 day.
Robert

Hey Sammy-B!

It is great to meet you!
I am in the same place as you were once. I am trying to start off my first freelance and life coaching business. And some entrepreneur-ing on a side.

It would be great if we could talk sometime, about your experience and maybe some guidelines?
Either way,
best wishes,
Maria

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Sammy-B Premium
Thanks for offering your help Kevin. I have been thinking about what could be my niche and would like to choose something around 'Pilates at home'. I'm not sure, however, whether I should concentrate on Pilates online classes, or on Pilates home equipment or whether to choose a wider range like 'Pilates home resources'. What would you recommend?

You're most welcome Beate. This is a great niche. I recommend doing some keyword research around these topics to see which search terms/keywords people are currently searching for. What are the low competition keywords you can focus on and create content around? Also, which topic do you feel most passionate about and can easily research content to write about? You also need to look at what topic area would monetize the best if that is one of your goals with your site. You have quite a few factors to consider.
