About ScottCS
Joined April 2014
My name is Scott and I reside in Utah. Currently I am an Inventory Planner for a catalog company. Previously I have been a co-owner of a video distribution company, a training store director for a retail video chain, and a retail store manager.

I am here to move my life from good to great. I make a decent living as an Inventory Planner but want to be able to better plan for my retirement AND be able to provide the opportunity to enjoy life a little more now!

I have toyed with creating my own website before but never really felt comfortable going about it on my own. With WA I think I have finally been given the tools to make that happen!

Hi Scott,

Most of the members of this WA community have fallen prey to the "gurus" and SCAM artists that pollute the Internet, I am by no means an isolated case.

I have joined WA about 7 weeks ago and I am very impressed thus far, I can see a long road ahead to absorb all the material on offer.

I honestly believe that we have all that we need, right here, to be successful online.

I am aware that there is a certain amount of ground work required before we get that first sale and thereafter it is a case of replicating the actions that got us to that first and all vital sale.

So far, I have invested significant time and effort in building a fair sized network of followers by providing fellow members with helpful tips to their issues.

I also know that I am not always able to provide the very best possible tips but the ones that I do provide are my honest interpretation what the fellow marketer needs.

There are given in a true spirit of good will, to treat others just like I would like to be treated when in a tight spot.

There is one other interesting barometer you should pay special attention to and that it is the number of members that have been here for some time, over 1 year, that is for me a very good indicator of the health of this like-minded community.

To Our Success Online,
Jonicas

Still trying to figure things out and decide on how much time daily I can dedicate to this. It's the busy time of year at my job right now so I haven't had much time since I signed up. If I'm just trying to add some extra income and not expecting to make "millions" how much time per week do you think I need to plan on spending?

Nice to meet you btw!
Reply
nathaniell Premium
I would say that 1 hour per day is a minimum, or 2 hours every other day. You can definitely get away with less, but then your learning becomes much slower, and progress even slower than that.

With at least an hour per day I would say that you can expect to start making sales within the year. It may take a few months, or a few months more. This depends on how diligently you work doing the hour, how consistent you take action, and what topic you write on!

I don't mean to downplay the income possibilities of affiliate marketing! Some people start making good money within months.

But if you have a job to support yourself for the time being, and devote a bit of time consistently, a couple hundred extra bucks per month is inevitable. You won't be stressed about "needing" the income, so this is not so bad of a setup in my opinion :)

Affiliate marketing works, it's just about sticking around long enough to see work!

Good Morning Nathaniell!

Well, I've already blown the hour a day thing out of the water. Maybe 2 to 3 hours a day will be more like it. :)

But I think I have totally over thought my Niche.... what I came up with was playing golf on a budget. Which would be everything from buying clubs at a reduced price to discounted tee times, etc. I love golf and actually fit in the category of budget golfer I've done a lot of research and have plenty of first hand practical application on the subject. Anyway, does that sound too general of an idea?

Thank you for any input you can provide!

No, that's a perfect niche to start with and work on...forever! Golf is huge, and there's always a fresh stream of newbies looking to get involved so you will never run out of buyers. Moving forward your job will be to establish some authority, which will mostly be done by creating lots of (good) blog posts for people to read.

Progress will be slow in the beginning but will go faster as time goes on.

Hey there, I just wanted to check in and see if you had any questions about what you've seen at WA so far. A lot of people get information overload in the first couple days.

The one piece of advice that helped me when I got started was that there is a huge difference in success rates between those that interact with the community and those that don't. Part of learning all this new stuff is going to require that you ask questions when you don't understand.

So, my suggestion is this.

1) Put up a profile pic

2) Write a short introduction about yourself

3) Drop in on my profile to say hello

Doing these things will help you meet people in the community and see what WA is all about. You can start learning how to build a profitable business on the internet by clicking the green "Get Started Here" button on your left. I hope you enjoy your time in Wealthy Affiliate!

Hi Scott,

When people go into Google they do not search for "Golf". They are looking for something specific relate to Golf. This is where you want to focus your time on. Your website needs to have a focus and deliver information about something specific.

Here is a great blog post by Kyle that will help you better understand how to find a niche:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/kyle/blog/a-niche-is-a-group-of-people-looking-for-stuff

Also, this post that explains the biggest 5 mistakes people make when choosing a niche.

I think these will really help you!

Hi Scott, Nathaniell here. Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

I'm glad to see you've signed up and are ready to get started.

Before you start making money, there are just two things you need to know.

1) Those who ask questions interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their goals. Watch this video here to learn how to maximize your community reach in WA https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/completing-your-account-set-up-at-wa-adding-a-description-image

More buddies means more support. More support means more success.

2) You can get started learning how to make money by doing your Level 1 Certification Course. Click on the green "Get Started Here" button or just click this link https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1/getting-rolling.

★ ★ ★ How To Access Your Exclusive Bonuses ★ ★ ★

I also wanted to let you know that if you join the premium membership in this 7 day window you'll get a TON of awesome stuff.

First off, you'll get a 59% discount ($19.95 for 1 month) on your membership. Twenty bucks for you first month of WA is an absolute steal. This is available to all members. But I've lined up some other things which are a bit more exclusive.


☆ ☆ Bonus #1: Live Case Study 3 Part Webinar Series

Get access to a 3-Part-Series Live Case Study webinar. It's video series where a professional internet marketer creates a complete 'niche website'. All steps are included and thoroughly explained. Total length of the videos is about 3 hours.

This will give you a broad overview of the type of site you will create on Wealthy Affiliate. I think it's always a good idea to know the direction you are headed before you start your journey.


☆ ☆ Bonus #2: Exclusive Look at The Top 5 Newbie Mistakes And How To Fix Them

Some questions get asked over and over again. It's very likely you have these same questions.

This is a two-part bonus. It includes an exclusive video not available to other WA members where I create a website EXACTLY how the training teaches you. Many new members don't follow the instructions properly and can't get their sites to work. Watch this video first, and you'll be up and running in 20 minutes with your own .com hosted here on WA.

I have also included 5 newbie website design and setup tips. These are super easy ways to turn your site from a basic Wordpress install into a streamlined canvas ready for action, and ready to impress your traffic.

This means you will be able to bypass these typical mistakes, get started faster, and on the right foot. This is an exciting time - you are building the foundations of a profitable online business, and I want to help you get started as quickly and smoothly as possible.
