About SeanOnline
Joined January 2015
Hi,

I live in South Africa in a sleepy little coastal village, which is ideal, since I love surfing and the quiet life - I feel very blessed to live the life that I do!

Having an internet-based business has been an interest of mine for years. I've been intrigued by it since around 2009 - something about the potential audience and reach that a person can have is pretty exciting to me.

My goal is to share something meaningful online, which has real value, with as many people that I possibly can. This includes showing these folks how to make a thriving business, which is centred around their passion or interest.

Really looking forward to working (and playing) with you all!

See you in the WA neighbourhood,
Sean

Hello, Sean!

I have had you in my view and go figure, I forget to tap the "follow" button.

Just wanted to make sure I'd 'done that' and to send you a thank you for your awesome comment that you left on my website. For all that we are learning, its the ebb and flow of comments that will create that sense of authority on our sites and leave tracks for the Google ranking. You asked me two awesome questions in the comment you left. I have answered them if you want to go back and check them out.

I'm excited that the one you commented on is already on page 2 of Google in position 14. What we learn here makes a huge difference. Gotta' go drop in to your site now and see what your creativity has bubbled to the surface.

Many smiles across the miles.

We also feel extremely blessed to live the quiet mellow life a block from some pretty awesome waves (which my fiance surfs all the time - sometimes I wonder what he would do if he had to choose between me and surf, lol - but that'd just be cruel to make him go there) here in sunny California :) Love your spirit. Keep on surfing!

P.S. We lived in cold, snowy Colorado for 8 years so a day with sunshine and beach is never taken for granted!

Wow, that's amazing - tell him hi from me! Colorado seems great too, though - love the snow. Maybe it's because it's a bit of a novelty here in South Africa :) Thanks for the comment Jess, and see you around the WA 'hood.

I have similar aims as you. However do not get much time too suef as the weather in the uk and the coast line is limited. There are a few beaches especially in Cornwall that are good for surfing. Tried it fell off, tried again same result. Seem to have an inbuilt ability not to be able to balance on a board

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.

SeanOnline Premium
Hey Vitaliy - so far I've been blown away by the friendliness and support, and also by the confidence that some of the premium members have had with regards to achieving success online.

Obviously, I would love to become a premium member, but one of the things I'm concerned with right now, is emptying my pockets (again) and then finding out 6 months down the line that it was a stupid thing to do (again).

That's what's honestly going on inside my head right now man.
Reply
VitaliyG Premium
I totally understand your reluctance Sean and trust me, I was in the same position back when I first joined, especially since I had the same experiences prior.

I could go on and tell you a million different ways WA is legit but it's just something you have to see for yourself and you already have. The only other thing I can say is that it will get better with premium, but also harder at times. Remember this isn't a get rich quick scheme, but you do have all the tools here. You also have my help as well as the community's.

What I can also tell you is that there's no surprise charges or up-sells here. It's just premium membership and jaaxy (optional since you can use the WA keyword tool for free as a premium member).

So it's totally up to you. I'm not going to go through lies that people in other programs so like "limited time offer, blah blah". Remember when I wrote about WA, I said they don't that crap. They are up front with everything and I hope thus far that has been the experience you have had :)
Reply
SeanOnline Premium
Yes, that's definitely the experience I've had so far, Vitaliy. Put it this way, I don't doubt WA at all, and the stuff I've bought in the past has probably worked for other people, I'm sure.

I've seen other people, who have been here for over a year, commenting that they had only made their first sale (of a whopping $16, plus some change) after 7 months.

That's 7 months of paying the premium fee, rewarded by $16? You know what I mean? I'm not trying to be funny, but that would break my heart.

I know you won't take this the wrong way - I really think Kyle & Carson have probably the best product out there right now, in terms of tools and support, so I'm definitely not doubting you guys, but I wonder if I can find a niche that:

A) Will be sustainable.
B) Will be lucrative within a fairly short period, in order to justify the membership fee.
C) Will be something I'll still be passionate about two years from now.

So really, you could say that I'm just asking questions of myself, not so much WA's ability to deliver.
Reply
VitaliyG Premium
I understand all of that Sean and really the answer is with you, not necessarily WA. I know there's a lot of members who are here for a long time and make very little.

The truth is that their level of success isn't a reflection of WA's training because I know for a fact those who work hard and follow it will get results way faster, but it's because many of them don't follow the training or just don't do the work.

I've run into a lot of people who have often done a part of the training, but then went on to do things to their business to ruin it thinking it would actually give the better results.

Your niche can absolutely be profitable if there's people searching for it. You can tell me what it is if you think it won't make money. As for passion, if you love the niche, you will be able to do the work in a much easier fashion. Just know that if you don't have 1 then there's always bootcamp.

There's a lot of people who doubt themselves with the training and even if this whole IM business is for them and what I usually advise is just trying 1 month of premium for the $19 to get access to EVERYTHING here and through that understand what's going to happen, what's needed and how to succeed.

That way if after seeing all of this, you decide it's not for you, you will not have wasted tons of money and time, but just tried the 1 month and if you want thereafter, to leave and do things on your own, you will at least be armed with the right training to move forward.
Reply
SeanOnline Premium
Thanks Vitaliy - I was actually thinking of starting with Bootcamp, since I have been through a lot in the IM world over the last few years. I think I'd be able to help people out there, since I have integrity, and I know what it feels like to be burned / frustrated. It might be nice just to 'get my feet wet'.

How possible would it be to be making at least $50 / month (in order to cover the premium membership) in the next 3 months with Bootcamp, if I was to spend about 7 hrs a week on my site? Is that realistic?

OK, a question regarding a possible niche - I've got a LOT of knowledge and experience with guitar playing.

There is a massive market in 'learn to play guitar' I reckon, but obviously, I'd want to really zone in on something more specific.

Do you know anything about guitar playing? There is an accessory, called a capo (which is a glorified clamp - you can Google it if you like) that you can use in guitar playing which makes playing in different keys a lot easier, and I was wondering whether that might be an example of a more targeted niche. How to use a capo.

I wouldn't really know how many people are searching for info on learning how to use a capo, but my thought was that it may be a possibility to do a website with info that walks people through that (maybe as a 10 day mini course, or something?), and then promote something like JamPlay and other affiliate courses, and maybe eventually develop my own products.

Maybe you'd be able to shed some light on whether or not you think that could eventually lead to a full-time income online?

Once again, I really appreciate your assistance, thanks a lot!
Reply
VitaliyG Premium
The guitar idea can lead to it and I'd add the capo as part of the more popular topic of guitar playing, but since you already have experience in the IM niche, you may want to start there first.

Both the make money online niche (where you'll be promoting WA through) and the guitar playing niche are both competitive so to answer your questions regarding a full time income, yes it is possible for both.

As for time frame, you mentioned 3 months. Yes it's possible to start earning more than enough to cover premium by that time, but it will be important to implement the training and write new articles about 5-6 times a week. I'll help you out in that department by providing some supplementary keywords to help you get going.
Reply
SeanOnline Premium
OK, nice one Vitaliy, thanks - how do I go forward from here? Just start with Bootcamp?
Reply
VitaliyG Premium
Yeah I'd start off right from lesson 1 with bootcamp. It's just like the original course, only the niche is already chosen so it's more clear to see how things have to be in that regard.
Reply

Reply
SeanOnline Premium
Hey Vitaliy - here's a legit question for you: The way that WA works is that it's very interactive, with newbies (such as myself) asking TONS of questions of the premium members who referred them (such as yourself).

I like that it's interactive, because it means that there is real help for real people - but I'm just putting myself in your shoes for a second - doesn't that equate to more or less a full time job for you of answering questions???

Sounds like it has been quite a journey to find your way here to WA Sean, but I am glad you did.

There definitely are a lot of scams and programs that simply do not teach you what you need to know out there. It sounds like you may have run into one or more of these on your way to making it here at Wealthy Affiliate. I can assure you that much brighter days are ahead now that you have found WA and I really do look forward to working with you.

If you ever need anything at all going forward, I am personally here to help you out so feel free to drop me a reply to this post or you can find me in chat (I am frequent there).

PS. I hope you are having a good weekend!

SeanOnline Premium
Once again Kyle, thanks for your personal investment in people here, it's very rare to find that. Yes, I have done a lot of research, and even bought quite a lot of stuff over the years, none of which led to actual sales.

I have to admit that it was mostly me to blame though. It's not so much that the gurus I was following were scammers, on the contrary, I believe many of them were top drawer human beings, but I'll tell you my #1 stumbling block: It's got a lot to do with picking a niche, and more specifically, 1) knowing whether the competition in that niche, or 2) the lack of people willing to spend money in that niche, would make my efforts a waste of time and money.

So that really has prevented me from even getting started. I'm sure you hear that a lot.

Anyway, that's my story :-)
Reply
Kyle Premium
Never worry about competition within the niche, any given niche is so vast that there is so much opportunity and so many keywords/audiences that are "untapped".

The only competition you should worry about is you and by being a member here and what you learn here at WA, you are going to have a competitive advantage over any of your competition.

When I enter a niche, competition does not even cross my mind because ANY niche can be highly lucrative and there is so much opportunity within any niche. Every niche is lucrative, there are 2.8 billion people online. If someone can build a successful business selling loaves a bread down the road of me, surely I can create something far more massive within the online space. :)

You will be just fine, don't worry about competition Sean.

Good to hear. The only competition at the end of the day is you vs. yourself and how willing you are to work towards success. Trust me man, you have a huge competitive advantage with what you are going to learn here at WA.
Reply
SeanOnline Premium
Quick question Kyle, you can set me straight if it's a bad idea. I was just wondering how possible it would be to get a WA affiliate site up and running which brings in at least the price of the WA premium membership fee per month, with about 7hrs work a week, within about 2, or 3 months.

Once that's running and making ±$50 / month, then I can still update it weekly and add value, but start working on a different niche site which may be more in line with what I could be passionate about in the long run.

Does that sound do-able to you?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yes, you can earn money on the free membership. In saying this, generating money in the first week or month prior as a Starter is like having an your introduction course to becoming a surgeon and expecting to perform surgery within the first month.

The first month is typically your foundation building stage. In order to build a website that earns you consistent revenue, you need this foundation. After this, you are going to start seeing traffic and as you build this out, there are many different ways in which you can generate revenue.

Personally it took me into my 3rd month of busting my butt to make my first dollar online, by month 6 though I was making consistent income and by the year mark, I was almost full time.

But guess what would have happened if I quit during those first two "trying" months or had instant revenue expectations. I would not be where I am at today (going on 12 years full time!). Just wanted to put things into perspective for you.

I am in this journey with you, so is the community here at WA. If you want to jump in, work hard, take action, and persist.

You will have some awesome things accomplished by the time you finish just the first 10 lessons of the getting started training and you will be prepared to build a very successful business online within the Premium membership.

But do upgrade at your own pace and take action on the tasks. Action is what will lead you to success!

That's cool Kyle - I hope I didn't offend you, I don't have instant revenue expectations, and I know that any kind of success comes with persistent application - I just like to know what I'm getting into, and what I can realistically expect before I jump. I'm a bit of a planner, I guess :-)

My reality is that I can't bust my butt at this stage, I need some down time after a full day's work. Thanks for being honest with me about what I can expect, again I really appreciate that. You guys have a great thing going here, something to really be proud of!

I may still try a more 'slow burn' approach where I can do things in my time, without becoming overwhelmed by work, and set a more long term goal.

No offence taken at all Sean, I just know how to offer a realistic expectation for everyone and I don't like to fluff things up. You are more than capable of a great deal of success, but at the end of the day it comes down to you and your actions.

Don't bust your butt, take the time that you can and dedicate it to your business. Choose a niche that you enjoy working within and then it won't feel so much like work.

Hey Sean, 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 Sean, feel free to leave them by just posting a reply here. I usually respond within 24 hours and will be more than happy to help you out!

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...

1. You can get a 59% discount ($19 for the first month).

2. I'll send you my personal guide to Reaching Your Financial Independence in 2015. This guide is based on my EXACT profit generating techniques I've used with WA. If you are serious about online business, you need to have this. :)

3. You get access to my personal support, 24-7. If you need help, you can be sure that you can fire any questions my way. I have been in the Internet marketing world since 2006 and have likely seen it all! In short, if you have ANY questions, you can come to me anytime and I will help you out (if I can't, I promise to find you the answer). You can count on that.

Certainly this is up to you Sean. For now just check out the recommended things and see how it works out :)

Talk to you soon!

Vitaliy

Thanks Vitaliy, I really appreciate this.

A quick question which may be hard to answer: I have a full-time job which requires most of my attention, but having an online business has been something which has been a dream for quite a few years now. How hard would it be to build a business which would bring in between $1,500 and $2,000 a month, considering I only have ± 5-10 hrs a week to spend on it?

Again, I totally understand that it would depend on a few factors, so no worries if you can't answer that - I just thought I'd take a shot, since it's one of the more pressing questions on my mind right now.

Well I hate to sound cliche but the answer is it depends. If I were to give you an estimate, I'd say an hour a day on your site plenty. For me personally, my day consists of writing an article on my site which usually takes around that time.

If you can devote an hour a day to writing on your page, overtime it will only get easier and will take less time to do so even with a full time job, you should be ok. And once the site picks up steam, you can devote less and less time to it.

As for the amount you mentioned, it's TOTALLY possible to earn that much every month. If you work on your site daily, I'd say 3-6 months (maybe shorter depending on the niche). For this to work as best as possible, I'd recommend picking a niche you truly love. It will GREATLY help!
