About SashaGrey
Joined January 2018
I am a registered nurse, which is my second career. I have a Master of Science in Nursing with a concentration in Nursing Education. My first career was in retirement plans administration and consulting. During that time, I earned an MS in Management. I went into that field with a BS in Information & Systems Science. I hope to be able to use my career and education to find profitable niches online. My interests include nursing and healthcare-related issues, management, reading, cooking and baking, pets, and casual bird watching. I grew up at the shore on the East Coast and currently live in the Midwest with my family. I enjoy spending time with my family, playing with my pet cats, and watching and feeding my outdoor pets (birds, opossums, cats, and squirrels). I will be working to build a second income online in the short term and to transition to working full-time online when that income replaces my current salary.

Hi, Angi!

Thank you for your words of encouragement. I have been at this for over a month and still trying to build up my blogs. I know that it will all take time as this is a business that has to be built and it will take a lot of hard work to get to making the money.

Best wishes to you as well with your business!

I was just answering messages and also saw your profile. I just graduated from UOPX online last year.

Are you studying online as well? It had its pluses and minuses, but you can't beat the convenience of online. Best wishes with your studies and your degree also.

Hello, Keisi -

Question on PPC. I have placed an ad for three days. 1st day 14 clicks and 1 referral. 2nd day 14 clicks and 1 referral. 3rd day 32 clicks and 1 referral after tweaking the way the ad was running with Bing's help.

Are these good results? Do you think I may need to tweak my landing page? I am concerned that I did not get maybe 2 referrals with the more targeted traffic on Day 3.

I am very new to this so I just wanted to get an idea about whether these results are good or if I need to change something.

I would really appreciate any suggestions that you have. I want to be as successful in getting referrals as possible.

Thank you!!!!

Sasha

Keisi, thank you for the speedy response and all of the great information. I am still digesting and rereading a lot of it. I paused my campaign for a day to look at things and made a few changes to my landing page, my ad, and my keywords. I feel like they are more focused now. I just restarted my campaign and am interested to see how it runs today. I hope to see an improvement in clicks and referrals to WA today, then I will look at A/B testing, by changing just one thing at a time. And I will keep on posting.

Out of the four days that I advertised, for $10 per day, I ended up with one referral to WA for each day. They had to click on my website, then click on the WA banner link to get to the WA site to fill out the form. They are all new referrals without profiles set up. I am sure they have not had a lot of time to look at things yet. It took me a few days to just get somewhat oriented to where things are on the site myself- there is so much out there to look at.

Thank you again. Have a great day! I'll let you know how it goes.

That sound you hear is me doing the HAPPY dance! You catch on really quick. Keep doing what you are doing.

One question, did you send your referrals a welcome message similar to the one that @waian sent to you when you first joined WA? I presume you did because that welcome message is your "Sales Pitch"

Also, this may be of interest to you, Sorry to load you down with so much but I am sure you can handle it all.

Thank you, Keisi for the information. I will be working on starting some of these tomorrow when I am off from work. I did send a fairly standard letter to the referrals, but it didn't include a sales pitch for premium. I will take a look at Waian's letter and make some changes to my standard letter. I really appreciate all of your help!

Thank you Lee for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. When first starting your affiliate marketing website many members have problems coming up with niche ideas.

Probably the one main problem is that people tend to over-think the simple process of finding a niche. Just sit back and look around you. You have niches everywhere. You are even wearing different niches.

Though it is important to fully understand that any niche can be profitable, there are certain niche markets that will be more profitable than others. You might think that the market is saturated but there is plenty of room to earn.

The niches in these 2 types of profitable categories (Evergreen and Passions) are plentiful and broad. Like all niches they will need to be narrow and focused. The more they are, the more profitable they become.

I created a tutorial that explains the differences in these two groups and provide you with many niche and sub niche ideas for each category. If you are having problems choosing a niche, click the link below.

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! :)

Hi, Kyle! I started the training in the "Get Started Here" area when I signed up last month, but quickly switched to the Affiliate Boot Camp. I have been working on a niche website about cats and have started a website to promote Wealthy Affiliate. I also created a third website to target the nursing niche, as in how to become a nurse, possibly to target it toward second career nurses like myself. I also have a website that I did not do anything with yet that would be geared toward weight loss. I have mostly been working on the cat website and will focus on that and the Wealthy Affiliate website for now. I don't want to split my attention in too many different directions since I am just getting started with it all, but I am interested in all of these areas. I think I have the best opportunity for income with the Wealthy Affiliate site right now, since you have a very well-defined affiliate program for me to follow, and that this will teach me how to make it all work. The two sites that I have really been working on are CatsThat.com, where I have built a decent amount of content this month, and AffiliateAtHomeIncome.com, which I have just started. I am thinking of targeting it toward seniors who are retired or nearing retirement age. I am looking forward to moving through the training so I understand more about keywords and rankings and how to get traffic to my sites. I really want to make this work so I can eventually quit being a nurse and work from home. I know it will take some time, but I am a good writer and I am sure that I can get the concepts and make them work for me with all of the great support and training that you provide.

Hey Lee,

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! It's great to have you here, and I can guarantee that you'll find this community always willing to help you succeed.

I wanted to mention a couple of things that'll help you get started here. The first thing you'll want to do is to fill out your profile. This step should only take a couple of minutes. Here's a video that walks you through the simple process: Filling out your profile is very important in this community, as it will give you more trust. People will be more willing to help you out knowing that they're helping a REAL person. ;)
It also shows that you're serious about learning to succeed here.

After that's done, swing on over to the "Get Started Here" training (the big green button on the left). This course will show you exactly what you'll be learning here in an easy to understand way. It'll also show you how to get your own site up and running in no time. Here's a link to the course: If you ever get stuck or need any help, PLEASE contact me and I will be more than willing to help you out. I want to see you succeed Lee, so I will do anything I can to help out.

I just wanted to add that you don't ever have to upgrade to the Premium membership here at Wealthy Affiliate if you don't want to. You'll have limited access using your free account for as long as you wish. HOWEVER, if you're serious about internet and affiliate marketing then you should invest in the premium membership for AT LEAST one month. You could look back on it years from now and see it as a pivotal moment in your internet marketing career, but you never will if you don't at least give it a try.

Anyway, like I said before, it's GREAT to have you here. I can't wait to see your progress, so what are you waiting for? Lol, but really, the best thing you can do right now towards becoming successful here is to fill out your profile, and get started with the training.
