About Schilling
Joined August 2016
My name is Jacob Schilling. I have attempted to make money using SEO on a website before, but after not seeing much for returns after working for 2 years, I deleted my website and abandoned Wealthy Affiliate.

I came back, I never stopped believing, but I felt that I needed to rest for a bit, as I felt that I would just frustrate myself after becoming too stressed out my first attempt. I needed some time to chill out. In this time I left my hometown and moved to the cities and I got a new job, I am enjoying this new job of mine a lot, comes with great perks.

I came back because I wanted to find like-minded people who have similar goals to what I have, and bounce ideas back and forth with them.

I grew up gaming, I beat Metroid Prime by the time I was 8 years old. It remains my favorite gaming series of all time. Gaming is something that has stuck with me for my whole life, it continues to inspire me that I want to eventually be a solo developer and make my own video games. I am currently learning how to code using C++ and how to use the unreal engine through some Udemy courses.

Outside of gaming, I really enjoy exercising. Currently, I run about anywhere between 3-6 miles every other day without stopping. If I feel like testing myself I will try to set a new personal distance record. So far it's 8 miles without stopping, although I might cut back and start incorporating new exercises, because I gotta be honest, it gets pretty boring running after you make the 5th mile. In the summertime, I enjoy hiking and traveling, but its pretty cold where I live, so, you know, I'm kind of a hermit.

My goal with Wealthy Affiliate is to take a different approach than my last one with my website. This time I want to spend more time understanding my audience and what their goals and aspirations are, and offer them the correct solution to guide them to their destination.

I've found that travel expands my awareness. I want to do a lot more travelling also. I admire you interests in exercise, wellness, and beautiful scenery. I'm interested in seeing your cartoons!

Much success to you!

WA has great resources for you to explore, and a helpful, large community willing to help, and full of highly skilled members.

Hi Vance. I really do need to get back to animating sometimes, I have become so busy trying to figure out more and more of affiliate marketing that at times it has consumed me. Writing 2-3 posts per day on some occasions.

I'd love to show you my cartoons. They are a bit violent and immature, the last full-fledged cartoon I made was about 3 years ago. I could definitely inbox you the link to some of my cartoons if you wish.

Thanks for the follow, I am aware of how helpful this community is and I will be sure to seek out help when I need it. To your success. :)

Hey Jacob. Hope you're doing well and the site is coming along nicely! I just did a blog post about graphic design and making videos. Since we share a niche and I'm grateful for your comments on my site, I thought I'd share this with you. Hope you find it useful!

Schilling Premium
Hi Nick, I'll definitely check this out, and my site is coming on good, got about 100% in every category except for site trust and posting, definitely gotta get to making more content but other than that yeah, things are coming along nicely! I'm debating with myself if I should start searching affiliate networks now or wait until I get more traffic because I know that some affiliate networks give you a certain amount of time to make a first sale and I don't want to get kicked out or anything, what would you suggest? Thanks again for your comment Nick!

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my websites. My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live a month ago and the one on sleep apnea has been up for almost four months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.

Wow, 80 hour work weeks! Yikes! No wonder you don't have time for anything else. Good luck and I hope your life slows down a bit.

Oh yeah, I work on towboats, once this winter comes the river will freeze and Ill be able to collect seasonal unemployment for 3 months, really hoping I generate some good revenue to the point where I wont have to go back once spring comes around, but if not then hopefully by next year!

No offense, but I hope winter doesn't come for at least a few more months, lol.

Hi,

You don't necessarily have to buy all the games that are coming out. Buy games that you would play. Start with reviewing those. Make gameplay videos and get people interested.

There are game demo's, beta testing and many other options to preview/test games out and recommend them to your audience.

That is if you are doing a game review/news site.

You will be promoting games via companies who do affiliate programs and sell games such as Amazon. Check out known game stores and see if they have affiliate programs.

But not just games. You can go into gaming merchandise. T-shirts, hoodies, figures, soundtracks and the list is endless.

If you get popular enough, game developers will be sending you review copies of games for free. Free press passes to huge gaming shows is also possible once you get more recognised.

A question to bare in mind is "What would I go to your site for ?"

If I want a walkthrough I'd go to a walkthrough site. For a game reviews I'd go to a gamine news site.

You see where I am getting at ?

Hope this helps.

Regards,

John,

Also, do you think for a domain name, schillingsvideogameselections is a good name? The website name would come out as: Schilling's Video game selections.
I'm thinking on basing it on reviewing video games that I personally have actually played, and once I have a better internet connection and technology, I would make video walkthroughs, reviews, and possibly streams.
Reply
johnwai Premium
schillingsvideogameselections is not a bad choice for a domain. Bit of a mouthful though. My suggestion would be schillingsgameselections which is short and sweet.

But it's your choice at the end of the day.

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! :)
