About Sarahmcleod
Joined December 2015
Decades of designing websites and watching the internet grow to now building my own internet business. I have a habit of making something out of nothing and that is what I am doing again.

Early 2013, after being told I had cancer, I closed all but one website, thinking I was going to die, given that my Dad had just died of the same cancer.

Almost 3 years later, all being well and I am ready to build my internet business again. 2015 has been all training and preparing websites, setting up autoresponders to build my email lists, the affiliate site and setting up support ready to get started come 1st Jan.

After two weeks holiday across Australia I am ready to set the plan in motion.

I just added a new domain, making that 13 in my arsenal of domains and three of those are multi-sites. Wealthy Affiliate will make it 3 hosting companies to spread the load between. All my sites are linked to one control center, so I can keep my WordPress sites all up-to-date and easily login when they need work. I run my own autoresponders, and have those linked to Sendgrid and Amazon SES which is totally under my control and way cheaper to run as I only pay for what I use.

I have had various trainers, but this year I have cut that back to just 3. Omar is into Product Creation and JV Product Release Promotion. He and Melinda are always topping the JV Zoo leader boards, and I like his cocky way of teaching. Sean is a coder and I love his products and software, a real gentleman and I have learnt a lot being on his team. Wealthy Affiliate is new, what I have seen so far is very good advice and I am yet to test out all the features.

There are some things I might do differently, like doing all my keyword research and demographic research first before I buy a domain or setup a website, just so I know who my target audience is. Hey I have been designing websites for decades, it is the marketing aspect I need to get updated on.

The final piece of the puzzle, video production is where I will be focusing on this year. The studio equipment and camera arrived just before I went on holidays and I have trial software to test out for screen capture and editing. Video production for promotion, products and websites all takes planning, scripting and learning the techniques to master along with knowing where to host the various types of videos.

Video is a major part of Product Creation along with quality graphics. For me this is what I am working towards this year also, for those just starting out I suggest you stick to affiliate promotion until you learn all the tricks of the trade before you venture into bigger things.

The thing I like about my Wealthy Affiliate is the community spirit and everyone helping everyone else, even when it is the blind leading the blind at times. I know my knowledge will come in handy here, but I am also keen to learn from others experience, so I will be following the program most closely.

Money Goals
My initial goal is to reach 1 Million Australian dollars after tax ($US 1.1 Million -/+) after that it is a bonus.
I would be ecstatic if I was to have a $ million dollar day, like I watched Frank Kern do a few years ago, (in his white robe).
I have been known to put in 20 hour days, especially when I am on a roll.

Success is very cumulative in nature. Every action you take will add up to a much greater success. I can tell you that when you earn your first money, it will all become very REAL and it will lead to much more success.

Personally it took me a couple of months to get there (to earn my first dime), but by month 6 I was earning a consistent income. That is likely what your journey will look like...stay persistent and ask for help when you need it. I am in your "corner" every step of the way Sarah! :)

Thanks for following, Sarah. What a wealth of experience you have. Most of the technical stuff is beyond me so far but I'm learning, bit by bit. I, too, am a cancer survivor - about 27 years. Best wishes forthe future. Cheers, Margaret
