About SeanDougall
Joined August 2015
I'm a sixty-four year old Dad of three (adults now but still costing me a fortune!) and I'm continually learning Internet Marketing. I find the Internet to be very fluid when it comes to marketing effectively.

I'm a retired Automotive Engineer (Programme Management), I thought 35+ years of my life making other people wealthy was enough! I have three 'children', a 26 year old son (a Police Officer) and twin 23 year old daughters (Estate Agents).

I have a number of Business websites, it's part of my testing strategy. Whilst I'm not a millionaire, I earn enough for a contented lifestyle.

So, a bit more...

Childhood - Born in 1956, my Dad was an Army Chaplain and my Mum a Piano Teacher. Dad served with the 2nd Parachute Regiment (https://g.co/kgs/1tcQ2U) and his service took us to a number of overseas locations, where I got the bug for travel. I owe a lot to my childhood as it was much more than many had in those days.

Education - Like many military children, I went to boarding school (http://www.methody.org/). It was my fifth school by the age of nine. I didn't enjoy it, being separated from my family. Academic achievements were driven by enthusiastic staff, as were sports, resulting in well rounded school leavers. I went on to an apprenticeship.

Career - I was sponsored by my employer (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dennis_Specialist_Vehicles) to study Mechanical Engineering (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_of_Portsmouth). After my graduation in 1980, I went back to work in export sales. The combination of working in an industry that I loved and travelling to many new parts of the world put me in my element. In 1984, I moved from Guildford (http://www.guildford.org.uk/) to Gloucester (http://www.thecityofgloucester.co.uk/).

Transition - Continuing in specialist vehicle manufacturing, I moved into management in export sales. For some years I had wanted to work for myself, I craved independence and the ability to fully reward myself for my efforts. I saw the opportunity in Network and Affiliate Marketing. I haven't looked back!

If you've read this far and not fallen asleep, well done and thank you!

Sean.

Excellent Sean, I know you will achieve your goals. As you start seeing more progress and results, you will be able to spend more time on your business.

When I started out online, I had limited time because I was in school full time and I was able to achieve "full time" status within the online business world in a year. I totally understand that we all have "time" issues in life, but I absolutely know you can do the same and accomplish the same sort of success!

Take action on the training here, immerse yourself within the community, and ask for help when you need it. This is your sure path to your own personal goals and successes Sean! :)

Like you say, Kyle, there's a lot of dodgy stuff out there that masquerades as the answer to Newbie Online Marketers' dreams, and I've bought into it (literally, with cash) and it's rubbish!

Yes, I'm into day 6 on the trial but I'm still here and working through the training. Am I going to go for Premium?

A resounding YES!

Why?

Simple, you have given me 7 days to try out your programme in full and it works - now I won't be wasting my money!

Many thanks!

Hi Kyle, Thank you for your personal message. Nice to know you take this level of interest in your trainees. I haven't come across that before and it gives me a good feeling!

I have a question, I have been given the Worldwide License Rights to a set of Videos - I have the Master DVD's and they are in Amazon for streaming - and I'm a bit clueless on how to start my website. I've done research on Wordpress and I've found two plugins that look good to build the site with (Optimizepress and Restrict Content Pro) and I can get payment from my customers through either PayPal or Worldpay.

I've started the basics here on building the Wordpress bit but I'm not sure which way to go from here. What do you recommend I do, please?

Sean.

You will get there as you go through the training, the first focus with your website is to build out the foundation, the content and get rankings. Once you have rankings and traffic then you can focus on what you are going to promote.

There is no sense in putting to much thought into what you are going to promote until you have content in place and an audience to promote to. So the first focus, audience/traffic.

You will definitely get there though!

Hello Sean! This is Robert, call-sign boomergp08 again. I'm just checking in to see if you need any help to get yourself started on your journey to owning your very own online business.

The one thing that people feel when they first sign up is that they may be in too far over their heads. When I first joined I wasn't sure if this was going to actually work because I was burned by pie-in-the-sky scams before. But then I said to myself, Robert, it was truly free to start up. I didn't even need to give any credit or debit card information. How bad can it be?

So I decided to try the training. My thinking was, I had nothing to lose. But I would be a loser at this if I didn't at least try it out. So I did and I was pleasantly surprised at how simple and easy it was to build a website.

I mean come on! All you do is create a domain name, name your website, select a theme which is what your website could look like and then click the button to build my website and within 30 seconds, YES I SAID 30 SECONDS, my website was built with 4 installed plugins, ready to go!

Take a look at the below video to see how simple it is. If you have any questions Sean let me know by leaving a question on my profile page.

Hi Robert, I don't know if you get notifications of my posts but, just to be sure, I replied to Kyle with the following:

I would only get nottifications of your posts if they were in direct reply to me, such as this post.

I am happy to read that you are beginning to see the benefits of the training here Sean. I cannot begin to tell you of all of the other scammy non-starter programs I tried before WA. Kyle does a really great job at teaching us all the right way to build and grow a business. I believe you will be happy here like myself and so many others.

Hi Robert,

I wondered if you got notifications because I got here through your Affiliate Link (I think!). I'm about to go Premium, when my wife gets back with the Credit Card!

One question, I don't know much about WP and my niche is Digital Products. I have a series of physical fitness videos that are hosted in Amazon FBA and I want to sell these products in the following way:

1) Customer buys the product that consists of three videos.
2) They get access to a personal password area where they get streaming access to video one.
3) 10 days later, they get streaming access to video 2, reminded by an automated email.
3) They get streaming access to video three 10 days after the second.
4) They have lifetime access to the whole product after that.

Do you know of a plugin that would do that for me? The Chat came back with bbpress but that turns out to be a forum tool.

Many thanks.

Off the top of my head, no, but I am sure there will be a plugin that can handle something like that. WordPress currently has over 39,300 plugins.

Hey Sean! I started doing this when I was 50, after almost 30 years in the video game design industry. Age has nothing to do with success. Determination to see it happen does.

EVERYTHING in life requires that we take action and learn how it works. Fortunately for you and all of us, Wealthy Affiliate is the place to learn it and get the support you need. Unlike other so-called opportuniities out there which are scams, WA is not!

I just celebrated my 2-year anniversary here at Wealthy Affiliate yesterday and I thank God that I gave WA a chance because I am making money from home online with what I have learned here. If you just absorb the training and apply it, you too can see results. If you need help or have questions, don't hesitate to ask me.
