About Sblasi999
Joined February 2018
My name is Susan. I am passionate about living and appreciating nature every day. I am also passionate about helping people.

I'm in my first two weeks here at WA.

I taught at a state college for many years, which means I didn't make much money, even at a high hourly wage. I believe I can have an effect on people's lives even as I profit for a change. Let's hope I'm right!

I am excited to work with all the talent surrounding me. I have a lot to learn. Here's luck to us all!

I reply from the CJ Training you went through earlier. Susan, your candles stuff seems to bring you all the possibilities and if you apply everything right, you might have your own parked marketplace run by Amazon dot com before too long. Do you know that a Seller from Japan from what I know earlier just have one decent space size of office but they have the products what they called "Japan Authentic Product Services", all of the ranges possible and Amazon are the one running their very own marketplace online and this you may enter once you establish your idea of business from starting the first big steps below.

Sorry for being late to come back to you as I was away for the past two weeks.Earlier, the market players online have all the spotlight mostly on them but as we enter 2018, all sort of market open up upon us in small and medium capacity to offer options for everyone rather than just focus on the big players.

Hey man, you have the stuff that can really open up all the possibilities for you to make a living out of it. Why not observe more the possibility as the Seller too? All three possibilities just from one product, candles.

I can say, candles, you make yourself available to both publisher and advertiser also the Seller you can have own brand of candles too. Go and do your homework on Ali Baba (if you think can try out with the small capital in hands, try to find the material on the bargain through A Grader Factory listed by them, as a Seller) and AliExpress for drop shipping (both provide publisher and advertiser too). I found CJ will giving us a bit of dilemma, I can say because of some other times a newbie status not too attractive to the networks.

Last but not least, sign up for RAKUTEN MARKETING, get your Candles niche around the place, select the directories that related to that niche, it is around the world businesses under one roof of marketplace provider. Go, my friend!

I knew you know your candles stuff very well and to excel in three as a publisher, an advertiser, and also the seller online from just one niche of candles, the path is there for you. The offer and promise from this niche seem to await you in winning the challenge to be the champions from just one niche but its beauty lies in the varieties of this stuff offering you along the way.

You have it already and don't be like me taking longer times still observing, always exploring, tinkering, and learn to teach myself on different experties. Just until recently I have manage to pull the pieces I am learning to be unleash very soon. Might be I have to do that by coming to the fore as a complete clueless head on all of these online possibilities.

All I knew back then only banking and financial stuff that I have stepped up all ladders possible from bottom only to find the sudden abrupt after 13 years being around that market segment..

Hi. I really thank you for this information. don't really understand it all, but i am here to learn. I will follow your advice and do research on Ali Baba. I live in a place where there are people already making their own candles and selling them in the streets downtown.

I am new at selling. I am new making money on the internet. Any information you give me, I will work on and I thank you.

What is your name?

Yours,
Sue

I am following you back.

It 's nice to meet you, Susan! Thank you for adding me to your network. I have added you to mine as well. I look forward to working with you.

Remember this is a process and not a race. Everyone learns at a different pace. Some absorb the material quickly, while others may struggle with some aspects (which is most of us starting out). The great part is that if you ever have any questions or find you are struggling to understand, there is a huge community here to help you out. All you have to do is ask.

Best of luck in all your endeavors!

Anita,
Yes, you make a good point. it isn't a race. sometimes, though, I feel I am so new, many who try to help are too advanced to explain the very basics. I will keep on trying, I'm not going to quit!

Thank you for your good wishes. I look forward to the future and working with you, as well.

Yours,
Sue

You're welcome! You won't feel that way once you get another level under your belt. Also, you can always ask them to elaborate or to give you a link to an additional training where you can learn more. It is easy to forget sometimes where you started from when you have been here a while.

Yes. 3 or 4 people reached out to help. This is a wonderful community. Once I sign in, there are quite a few things to be done. Then, there is a moment of clarity when something I asked about yesterday will become clear - then I have to go fix it.
Somethings from the day before are still a problem. i'm sure you know how it gets.

determination persistence and hard work. That's what Kevin told me today In an email.

I appreciate the thoughts,
Sue

I appreciate your offer of assistance! I continue to try to understand siterubrix and building a pleasing-looking site. I will certainly go to your blogs and check them out.

Everyone here is friendly, but sometimes talking to too many people is distracting. I do admire your success and generosity, and I will be contacting you, Loes.

you're super,

Hi, Susan. In reference to your siterubix website, if you want to change the name you will have to delete the first and start over with a new site.

However, why not just promote both candles and the holders on the site you have now? You can promote more than one product on a website.

I hope this helps

Hi Wayne,

I began my site all about candles. then, when I researched keywords in Jaaxy, I found better marketing opportunities for candle holders. The only .com site name I could get was: Candleholderslargeandsmall.com.

so, I have to change my Privacy Policy, etc. before I publish to the web. confusing...

That explains a lot. I just realized that I was responding to something you left in Live Chat over 2 hours ago. Better late than never:)

A shame to have to do all that work again but, in the end, it will be worth having the .com site.

All the best,
Wayne

The time was fine. I had signed off and went to do some errands. Now I'm back at it. I need site help, I've been told. the siterubrix.com site doesn't load!
I don't mind typing it again. I'm getting really good at site creation!

Thanks,
Sue

Sorry for the delay getting back to you but, have you contacted Site Support about this? If not it might be a good idea.

Hi Wayne!
Thanks for the thought. The problem is resolved, and yes, site support helped. There were actually quite specific and sorted me out in a couple minutes.
My site has just been published on the web: www.candleholderslargeandsmall.com.

It isn't perfect. it isn't complete, but it is there! So, full steam ahead. everything is clear as mud at first. persistence pays off. Thank you for your help and friendship! I'll keep you and the community updated, i'm sure. I'm excited.

Thanks so much, Phildora, This is my first attempt at marketing on the web. I guess I was lucky to find WA on my first try, I certainly have goals for the future. I intend to pay annually, because I'm certain, if I keep at this, it will pay off.

I have 2 master's degrees, but I believe this training is going to be more valuable than any education I've ever gotten - a lot cheaper, too.

Thanks for the wishes. The best to you, too!

Thank you Susan for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. If you need any help remember to post your question in the comments section or on live chat, and someone will be able to help you.

I created an informative training tutorial for all New Members that clearly explain the differences between the Certification Course and Affiliate Bootcamp.

I highly recommend that you do not start your WA training doing the Bootcamp. The Certification Course is the BEST option and I explain why in the following tutorial. If you have a few minutes free, give it a read and ask me any questions you may have within the comments section, and I will be happy to give you an answer.

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! :)

sblasi999 Premium
I considered scented candles, incense, then settled on gym wear and accessories for women. Thoughts?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Your niche ideas are definitely viable directions for your niche. You need to choose one when starting out, what are you most passionate about?

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)
Reply
sblasi999 Premium
Thanks. I have 2 or 3 ideas: I want to help people learn English as. Second Language; I want to help people who want to take Disney family vacations; and I might like to help people who want to select candles and incense for purchase.

Am I close to anything here? I'm going to go to the platform and keep researching for niche info.
Thanks...
Also, I must go back and change my website. Should I just start over?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yes, you are definitely close. Now it is just a matter of choosing one of these. Which one resonates with you most and which one are you the most passionate about?

Remember, your first niche does not need to be your last. You can create successful businesses within many different niches and you likely will over time.
