About ShaneWelcher
Joined June 2016
I am new to internet business ideas and applications, very interested in learning about them and starting a successful online business. I have been through a lot of other programs that seem great at first but once you try them, they just aren't what they say they were or they are trying to cheat their way through. That is not me, if I am going to do something then I want to feel good about it, not just make money, money is great but without knowing you aren't truly adding value to the world then it really means nothing. I am a 36-year-old father of 2 boys and I work a lot. I would very much love to make a successful internet business to help me free up some time with my two sons.

I believe as a team that we can achieve anything, we just have to link together the correct way to be what we want to be.

After all, we all want to achieve success so why not try?

Why not give it everything you have to get everything you ever wanted?

Shane, nice to hear from you. I look forward to getting to know you my new WA friend. Sorry for the late response to your follow but I seem to be lagging a bit here!

I am sure with you on the other programs. I haven't been caught out for many dollars as I am, at times, a cynic and always set a limit. And only once as I was lucky enough to find Nathaniell on my second go.

If one doesn't work things out for their own self (with appropriate training) then when they need to do an action again they often can't remember how to do it. And it's a great feeling when you do figure something out!

Keep working hard, having fun and don’t forget to ask questions.

If I can’t help I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Now let us keep in touch.

Ciao
Helen

Hello Shane,
My name is Phil and I would like to follow you for a couple reasons. You are young and enthusiastic, you are seeking legitimate information, integrity and your ranking since 2016 is quite high. I congratulate you on the later!

I would like to follow you on some of your social media sites. When you see my name and request you will know who it is. I am a 70 years young and enthusiastic member on Wealthy Affiliate. I have attempted Internet Marketing several times in the years past without significant trading and negligible results. I have experienced multiple interruptions due to health issues and am currently doing very well.

I look forward to following and leaning from you.

Phil

Hi, Shane and welcome to WA. I just want to take this opportunity to say thanks for adding me to your network and that I have added you to mine as well.

Hope you are enjoying the training and the community. I think you will agree that both are pretty amazing and the latter can be a little overwhelming.

But don't give up, stick with it and eventually, things will start to happen. I look forward to connecting now and then and wish you a happy and prosperous New Year.

All the best.....Wayne

Nice to meet you and I agree 100% with your bio. I have to feel like I am doing right by people to make honest money with the help of what I have learned here. Stay strong and if you have time, please let me know how your adventure here is going for you. Are you still satisfied after completing level 5? Do you still feel confident in the program? Let me know if I can be of service too. Thanks again.

Hello Shane,♫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 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hi Shane. I know exactly what you mean when you say some of the others are trying to cheat their way into online business success. I've seen a few of them myself. It's lovely to meet other people who want to do things the honest way. Wishing you much success with your goals and business. Ange

Hello Shane. In answer to your question what is the best theme the only answer I can give is that it is your choice and dependent on what you want to put on your site that will be suitable for your particular niche. You could have 100 people tell you which is the best and if they chose one for you they would all be different because no two people have the same opinion especially when the choice is from 1,000,s of themes so just go along with your gut instinct and jump in. It is pointless worrying about this one or that one the only proof of being right is getting the best response from your list so it is basically pot luck until you get sales anyway. You can try one then if the response is poor try another one that is the way it is in IM.

To our success

Thank you,
After more thought, I really just wanted to add an image or two to give a design element to the site and the Iconic theme does not have a footer section to edit unless you mean in the editor code for the footer and to b e honest I didn't want to play with the code because every time the theme is upgraded then you stand a chance of having to add that back in.

Michael, 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 Michael.

Kyle,

I have obtained a domain for the a scam theory being that I have been through other processes or online scams so I have a great opinion on help people avoid these areas.

This is an honest opinion website that I will be giving review for several different online trainings that I have been part of and truly don't believe are value added material.

I have 4 active domains with WA currently and glad on purchasing a years membership soon because WA is a value added training.

WA will be my only recommended site to go to not be scammed online.

If there is any helpful tips that you can give me to advance my process quicker or more accurate then please let me know.

My three major Niche are:

My two week developed sites of:
onlineplcsupport.com
increasestrengths.com

My newly developed site from last night is:
waystoavoidscamonline.com

Not trying to copy what you have in the training but I truly have a personal effort to help people in this effort.

All sites are new within me just being a member for a month but so far from help and helping others I have gained a lot of knowledge and am eager to gain more.

Thanks,

Kyle Premium
I would avoid copying the name of my site so closely. People are going to be confused by your site and my site, so please refrain from this. I think you will have much more clout in the industry and be able to create a brand with much more ease with a unique domain and before you get too far ahead of yourself you might want to pick up a different domain.

If you want to run your ideas by me, please do let me know and I will give you a hand.

Also, in respect to running 3 niches at once, I recommend creating your formula for success within ONE niche before you diversify too much. It will lead to a lot more "greatness" in the respective niches that you work on with this added focus.

ShaneWelcher Premium
Thank you for the reply, again I was not trying to compete with you on the scam theory but I do have a great opinion in the scam theory. I have been scammed by several of the other sites and have a good trust ability in that.

I will drop the current domain even though I have already paid for it but if you don't mind you could private message me to a better suggestion.

I will do some research on a better scam wording and also the only reason I started the third Niche of scamming is to be a better affiliate to Wealthy Affiliate not anything else.

Wealthy Affiliate has helped me learn and grow more than any other online training that I have been through.

Thank you again for your response and help.

I have tried to private message you before regarding things such as this but maybe I am doing something wrong because all I get is auto responses or an email request.

Are you not open for Private Message?

If not , I understand because you do have a lot of people that would soak up your time in that field.

Thanks again,

ShaneWelcher Premium
After looking at this closer, my other two niches have nothing to do with marketing or scams so using WA as an affiliate is not a good choice on those sites.

The real season I started in the third niche was to promote WA and without further research I will have to refrain from using WA as an affiliate link but in the best interest of WA , the current domain that I have regarding scams can be dropped if need or if you suggest then re-named.

Again, I am looking out for the best interest of WA and not my own in this niche so if it will affect us negatively then I will let this domain stay idle and remove the content.

Just let me know either way is fine with me, the other 2 niches are plenty to keep me busy and work a day job.

Thanks,

It is easy to transfer your site to a new domain (so your work on your site has not been done in vain). I just worry that there will be confusion because of your domain name and that you will not be able to effectively brand your website because your domain is so similar to mine.

I think your direction with your niche is a good one, I just want to make sure before you get into that space that you create a domain where you can become a long term "brand" and authority within the space. If you want to run any domain ideas by me if you do decide to purchase one, I would be more than happy to help you out.

Kyle,

I have currently been working on my first Niche today which is http://onlineplcsupport.com waiting to hear back from you on this matter so the content on the http://waystoavoidscamonline.com/ site is just what I added yesterday plus the full Google setup and Bing setup for sitemap. No worries, just a days effort.

I will transfer the site away from that domain name as soon as I get a chance to look up what would be a valid domain name but being that I own the name now, what do I do about that. Just keep it until it expires?

I tried to Private message you but as you may know it won't allow that, it will just prompt questions answered.

If so, I have no problem with that, just curious.

Again, sorry over the confusion and I truly hope you know that I was not trying to hurt WA, my real effort was to aid WA grow.

I truly hope I can do this in the newer future as it would aid all of us.

Just to give you a heads up, I already created a new domain for this and I will transfer everything tomorrow.

Welcome to WA and great that decided to go premium. I am sure you will learn a lot from here. We have a great community here, if you need help at any point, don’t hesitate to ask for help. The information you get here can be overwhelming initially, but if you persist and keep with the hard work, you will see the results. It can sometime takes time but keep it up.

Thanks for the encouragement, I work a pretty demanding career now so time can be restricted but when I do I have time I soak up as much as I can. I plan on building and progressively growing throughout the next few years.

Just one question, after you make your first site. How long does it take to for Google to find you in a search? I really don't want to much traffic until fully built content. If it auto populates in Google then that's fine as well. I haven't seen too much info so far regarding this.

Thanks

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 Michael, 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: (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 Michael, 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 Michael. For now just check out the recommended things and see how it works out :)

Talk to you soon!

Vitaliy
