About ScottM2
Joined October 2016
Hello My name is Scott. I live in Foxboro Massachusetts. Home of the patriots. Yes my wife and myself love football. Looking for extra income. This caught my eye. I work a lot 48 to 60 hour weeks. I like spending time with the grand kids. Hoping I can make money doing this and have more time to spend with wife and family. Sounds like this could be a fun community to get involved with.

Hello Scott,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link on the right (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Scott, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Scott.

Thank you. I do have a few questions. Boot camp 1 lesson 3 you have a video you had us do a privacy page and you said to set it aside and you would put it on a sidebar section later so my question is how do I set up that side section right now there's a bunch of blank plugins and I don't know what to do with those.

While I'm still doing some of the content for the pages what am I supposed to do with the front cover of the page I don't have much there. Can you look and see if I'm going in the right direction with my pages.
I know that there is some misunderstanding on my part because I don't know what to do with the cover or how to put things on the side I don't even understand how to use a plug-in.

Any suggestions would be most appreciated my site is

You can add "Custom Menus" to your widget.

You can add these custom menus to organize your top menu in any way in which you like, as well as create sub-menus (for themes that will support this). You can also use these custom menus to add within your side widgets on your website (within your sidebar).

Here is a tutorial on how to create custom menus: I use custom menus on all of my websites (over-ride that default menu). It allows much more control and organization....both good things!

One thing that I always recommend is to "show" people more within your content instead of just "telling" them. By this I mean that you should not just let them know about something, you should walk them through a process. Help them. Use screenshots or images to represent what you are talking about.

This will lead to a much more enjoyable user experience and will also lead to much higher conversions.

Off and running here and as you move forward I recommend that you start creating everything as "posts" on your website.

Thanks again one more quick question or maybe two what do you mean creating post does that mean not pages but post instead not sure.
The other thing what is a screenshot. Dumb but when it comes to this computer stuff I'm very very green and I don't understand a lot of the terminology.

A post and a page are the same thing, the only difference is that a post snippet is added to your blog roll after you create it.

Pages typically go to your menu by default, but you can override that with custom menus (which can include pages and posts).

I typically create my initial framework of my website (first 5-10) as pages, then after that I create only posts. Posts are beneficial for rankings because they do go to your blog roll which makes your website look current to Google (good for SEO) as well as your audience.

Hope this helps.

Hi Scott,

Welcome to WA.

I am doing the same thing...almost.
I'm finding the training to be difficult, and have to go back over it, sometimes to "get it".
Often, I get help from a friend. You may want to reach out to him. Like me, he is a veteran, and very patriotic. But, the point is he knows this stuff, and can help you. He is Chris Scott, and you can put his name into the search bar above, where it says "Hey Scott, search for help here.

I wish you tons of success. Have a nice day and God bless,

Mike

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! :)

Hey Scott, I wanted to stop by and personally welcome you to WA. Rest assured everything I mentioned about them is true :)

Whether you're here to build a business, a website or just want to learn and make money online, this is the only place that will show you the best ways to do it.

Here are my 2 quick recommendations on getting started out the best possible way:

1. Please complete your account sign setup. This is just a simple 1 minute process that will better help myself and WA know more about you and your goals. I'd like to get to know you better and help you get going.

2. After you've done this, check this page out:
Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1)
(I think Kyle or Carson already recommended this). This is where everyone who joins WA should begin as it will explain everything.

The course is the most important part of WA. It will guide you to success!

And that's it!

Believe me when I say this stuff works. Just follow the instructions and if you have any questions Scott, feel free to leave them by just posting a reply here.

One last thing I want to mention:

Currently you're a Starter member of WA. This is completely free and you can do a lot of things such as build 2 free websites, get access to training and the online chat, among other cool perks!

If you see that WA and it's training is something you'd like to continue, I would highly recommend upgrading to the Premium membership. It's usually $47 per month, but if you sign up within the first 7 days of joining WA
you can get a 59% discount ($19 for the first month).



Talk to you soon!
