About SaraPoyner
Joined May 2019
I am a 44 year old mum of two who has had an awakening that I want freedom, I want to have enough energy, time, health and means to pay my bills and fulfil my souls desires. I am currently employed and self employed but strive for the day when I no longer have to trade my time and energy and my soul for money. I love travel and adventure, hiking, climbing mountains and spending quality time with my two children. I have chosen to only work (trade hours and energy for money) in school hours and term time, so this has severely restricted my earning potential through working for others. I am passionate about regaining my mental, physical, financial and spiritual health and hope this endeavour will motivate my love of research and writing and photography to provide great content to help others and give me and my family the freedom to live life to the full.

Superb goals Sara! You have a large network and community here at WA that you can leverage for help and support along the way, myself included.

It all starts with a goal...then is followed by action...then is followed by results. This is going to be how it pans out for you and I can't wait to hear about all of your successes in the days, weeks, and months ahead! :)

To be honest right here, right now, I'd be happy getting my debts back on track. Then getting them paid off. Then my goal is to get my family back to Portugal for a holiday next summer, as we haven't had a holiday for some years. If achieve this within a year I will be ecstatic!. After that the sky is the limit, with my ultimate goal to have no mortgage and be free to travel wherever and whenever I like, whilst being able to teach my two children how to have the same freedom in their lives.

Those are some very achievable goals Sara, and once you reach them, you'll be primed and ready to go beyond. If you stick to the plan and dedicate that amount of time to training and taking action every day, then you are definitely going to start to see some results!

Hi Sarah! Great post this morning!

Would you mind sharing your website address? I would love to see how you've set-up your Amazon stuff.

If I don't make a sell on Amazon soon, they are going to drop me as an affiliate. I think I signed up too quick for the program....
Google AdSense is the only thing making money on my site right now.

My website is fairly young and I know it takes time and loads of quality content before you start to see changes. But, before I start seriously trying to drive traffic to my site, I want to have everything set-up right as not to turn people off. You know what I mean?

Thanks a Bunch,
Jen

Hi Jen. Honestly I know completely how you feel. I think I stopped writing because I feared I wouldn't sell anything in the allotted time and would have to replace all my links. Or worse they wouldn't approve me. I have been doing 'best of' posts. I pick 10 items and write quite a bit about them. My posts range from 1500 - 3500 words and I use Jaaxy to do key word title and tags. I haven't written on my site for 3 weeks now. But will be back posting every day from tomorrow. My site is on my profile, but as you have asked for it I think it is ok to give you it here. It is www.naturalorganicforbaby.com

My sales all seemed to come at the 3.5 month benchmark, however I have known others still trying to get sales at 12-18 months. Every Niche and site is different. The best advice I can have is really believe in it.

Hope this helps? And wishing you much success xx

Hi Sara,
Thanks again for your response to my Remote Viewing blog post. You know, I had a hard time thinking about my niche... I chose MMO because I have been scammed out of hard-earned cash so many times....but now that I think of it, Remote Viewing could very much be my favorite topic because A. Hardly anyone knows about it and B. If they knew about it, they'd be blown away by it and want more info...and C. I think I can be one of those sources of info and may be able to turn a profit on a very tiny niche....how about that? Amazing how your path can turn on a dime.... :-P

See if you go with your inner compass it always steers you right. I think it will be a fabulous Niche, so unusual and interesting and I can tell by the way you write about it that you have a real interest in researching and writing about it. Go get em!!

Thanks for the follow, Sara. I'm following you back.

I do hear ya about freedom. I've got a bunch of it, I do work that challenges me and for which I'm well-suited, but I'd like more time to initiate and develop projects that would use other skills I've been developing as well.

Mostly I want to keep my time for working on my own dreams rather than on other people's dreams. To me, that's the best kind of freedom.

Good fortune on your journey....

I have tried to do a blog a day, with a couple of days not blogging. I love blogging on WA. I am now refocusing onto my website, to get that to 100 blogs in 6 months, so some hard work ahead!

Here's the full quote on what the Buddha felt when he gave this speech...take care...

"Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumoured by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it."

Hello Sara And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing could be a steep learning curve and there will always be something new to learn.

You must keep referring to the training (it does get updated from time to time).

If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 490+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me a message anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.

Hi Paul

Thank you so much for your kind offer of help. I abandoned ship and deleted it and decided to continue to the end of level two training without it.

In the end I realised I was not working to my best learning style. I don't do well learning on technology or with step by step. I need it written down and need to know the bigger picture and endgame. Once I had that and knew that, I had a simple website up and running in minutes!

Good Morning Nathaniell

(not sure what time it is where you are but here in uk it is early!!)

Having a Niche is not my problem, I have 9 Niches that I would happily, passionately research, write about and promote. So I have decided for my first website to go with organic baby products.


My first problem is the website, I have tried to build it, but there are not images in the media library. Is this because I am not a premium member? Or do I have to source and pay for any images myself?


Also I am based in the UK so should I make my website UK based with Uk companies and affiliates or USA? Or Both? How do I generate traffic to my site depending on which route I go?


I have many more questions but they go beyond where I am at, in the process and training so i'll stick with those two for now.


I look forward to getting your advice, but for now...Coffee.

I'm going to be honest Nathaniell, After waking up at 5am all motivated and raring to build my website and then over the course of four hours being driven to despair and my soul slowly dying, i'm not doing too great.

I am finding the technical aspect of building my first website impossible.

Heres where I am at... I chose a Niche Organic baby Products - Check
Chose a Name - Check
Chose a theme - check
clicked on theme and hated it - check
tried to amend theme - nope
tried to amend theme another way - nope
went into customise and then amend theme and was given an option of four. Found one I loved (Twenty Seventy Theme)

So then I clicked on it, thought I was amending it. It let me amend the Home page. Uploaded a picture and changed the text easily. Then there was no amend options available for the other sections?
I then spent two hours trying different things and thought I'd ask a question, but couldn't find anywhere the 'ask a question tab'?!?

Tried to message you, but of course I have to upgrade to premium for that. Tried to write a blog to get help, but only alowed one blog a day. So I reached out on live chat, only to be directed to youtube!! or some very complicated technical training.

So Is Twenty seventeen available or do I have to be a premium member to use it?

How do I amend my theme once chosen and hated? because at the moment it just directs me to a white error screen?

My son just came downstairs and said Mum I don't think you should do this. It is taking all your time and making you upset and angry. So here I am...

I'm sure in a years time and I have multiple websites, I will laugh and revel in today and its dismay and challenges, but for now, a break!

Hope you can help?
Many Thanks
Sara

nathaniell Premium
So there are 10,000+ themes out there, which is why Live Chat directed you to YouTube. Theme customizations aren't really necessary to make money, and would be impossible to track all of them and provide training, so most people will direct you to theme-maker resources for stuff like that.

Changing a theme is easy though. There is no "best" theme out there - it's all a matter of taste. That being said, I always recommend you start with something simple. White background with black text is the way to go. Choose a simple homepage that displays your blog roll, a top menu, and the sidebar. That's it!

Everything else is pretty much a distraction at this point.

Here's just a few simple themes I found that I like, but there are thousands more out there. Let me know if that works for you Sara!
Reply
SaraPoyner Premium
Yeah I'm going to be honest I abandoned and deleted the whole website in the end and concentrated on watching the training to the end. Think I misunderstood the whole point of the first website building, and thought it was going to be my actual website, wanting beautiful pictures and great content etc. I then got to the end and realised it was just a dummy practice run. So I'll go back now and do a very simple one.

I have some questions about Premium membership. In the training it mentioned there were 'different levels of membership'. So will premium membership see me through to releasing a website that is able to make me money, or am I at training level 3, 4, 5 etc going to be upsold to have to pay extra or for another level in order to reach that goal?

As a ex sales person i'd rather know up front. What is the cancelation policy? Am I tied in for a set period of time or have to give a certain notice period?

I've got to be honest it has been a very stressful 24 hours. I have found the training style and technical jargon difficult. But now I know this I can adapt it to my learning style. I will also take your very good advice to keep things simple.

I have been impressed by the network and the support I have received from them.

Thank you for your advice and time I'm sure it is very precious and I thank you for taking some of it to reply to my despair!

The Premium payment is only one level. $49/month or $359/year. There are not extra levels of payment or restricted content.

The "levels" just refers to the topic of the training. Level 1 is basics. Level 2 is traffic. Level 3 is monetization, etc.

For canceling, you can cancel at any time. If you want to keep your websites live though, you will have to move them to a new host.

Premiums can cancel their subscription at any time in account settings. Do so at least a few days before the expiry date of that monthly or yearly subscription because otherwise it will auto bill.

Click "Account Settings", then "Membership". You will see the Cancel Billing Link under your avatar and details.

A Premium member can cancel and return to WA by logging in to their cancelled account, making the payment from that point on, which will re-activate the subscription, and continue where they left off. If they had an owned domain website and did not move it out, Site Support will recover it on request for up to 6 months after leaving.

Alternatively, if you want to leave, you can choose to host your website somewhere else, and you can still keep your domain at WA. You can choose to move that as well if you want.

If the website is on a paid domain, you will have 30 days after canceling to back it up and/or move it to another hosting service. If it is on Siterubix dot com, best to use the WP import/export tool to backup the content because free sub domains cannot be moved to other hosting but the content can be uploaded elsewhere.

Regarding your website, it's not a "dummy" site at all. You can move your *exact website* to a full .com domain name once you get to that part of the training.

You can change your theme at any point as well, so if you are not happy with your theme, you can swap it out later.

Let me know if you have any more questions!

Hi Nathaniell

Yes decided to take the leap for a change, instead of second guessing and waiting and then regretting. I figure its worth at least seeing what you guys have to offer. I have looked at many affiliate marketing gurus and coaching, in particular six figure mentors but my instinct did not feel comfortable with their philosophy. (If you are connected to them I sincerely apologise). Your blog 'just one more coffee' really resonated with me.

I have spent most my working life as a financial advisor working within a banking environment but decided 5 years ago to return to university. After graduating my degree with first class honours, I decided to only work school hours and term time because I got used to spending time with my children. Due to this, I am currently employed on a zero hours contract, which has not given me work for 4 weeks and I went self employed to have more freedom, but now end up working twice as long for half as much money and if the client cancels I get paid nothing, If me or my children are sick, I get paid nothing and this has caused me to run up debts just to survive and pay for the basics. Don't get me wrong I am truly grateful we have a home and do scrape the money together for food etc, however most nights I would say 'There has got to be a better way?'

Then two days ago I found your blog. and here I am.

Since university I have grown to love research and writing and had been looking for an outlet for that love. Whilst listening to an audio book about 'Having a love affair with my money' I was introduced to the concept of affiliate marketing and multi level marketing. This completely spoke to me as I just want to sit with my laptop on my travels and adventures earning passive income!.

Having tried many network marketing schemes in Weight Loss with Herbalife, Avon, Forever Living Aloe Products, and another brand of protein shakes I can't remember because it was such a failure and I ended up living on protein shakes for 3 months just to not waste stock!. I hated flogging my new marketing to a death to my friends and family.


So here I am with a desire to clear my debt and hopefully take my family back to Portugal next year. I then hope that within 3 years I can give up trading my time and energy for money. To be able to be financially free but still 'work' only school hours in term time. I am willing to work hard, and through university I was used to writing 3000 words a week. I have a passion for self help, healing, nutrition and vitamins, love beauty products, hiking, camping, climbing mountains and traveling so I have plenty of niches I am truly passionate about and it would be a pleasure researching. I also have 44 years of life experience and the 3 years of research into theatre, acting and mindfulness I conducted at university.

I have researched lots of affiliate programs in the UK which would connect to the above niches. So I suppose I should get on with it!!!

I look forward to learning from you and any advice will be greatly received!

many Thanks
Sara

I'm curious how you found my blog Sara! Glad you did though. I can tell you are ready to make some big changes to your life, and not afraid to work to achieve them. The good news is that you won't need to sell protein shakes to family to get there :)

You can definitely leverage your experience in finance or weight loss to start a website though. Those are both evergreen topics, so will never go out of style. The main thing to focus on at this time would be what "niche" you want to focus on within those broader industries (if that's the direction you choose to go).

Have you started the training here yet?

Hi Theresa (and John)

Thank you for the welcome!

I am very excited that I have finally taken the leap. I am usually very suspicious of schemes like this, but it just got to the point where every night I was shouting 'there has got to be a better way?!' and I was led here.


Good luck with your journey and I look forward to exchanging feedback

Sara
