About SheliaDunn
Joined October 2015
I have been a member of Wealthy Affiliate since mid-October 2015 and have greatly enjoyed my time training to build websites and getting to know all the wonderful folks involved in the WA community.

My goals are pretty simple--I want to make enough passive income so I no longer have to chase money. I am also keen on learning how to keep a website/blog dynamic with fresh content on at least a weekly basis and learning more about keywords and SEO.

I recently moved back to the States after living in Europe for nearly 12 years. Loving the sunshine and friendly faces!

Shelia: You have such a pretty smile. I like it. I want to thank you for the follow. I have one of the strongest networks here and WA and it is for a good reason. If you ever need any help with anything here at WA please contact me through the “private message” system here (gooddogpoky2) and I will get back to you as quickly as I can. WA is all about community and my network stands behind that community with whatever is needed. I am not the smartest WAer out there when it comes to e-commerce, but I can tell you that many of my followers are and we will get the problem worked out, one way or another. I am wishing you all of the success you are looking for here at WA in the months ahead. DAN

Hi Shelia, very interesting! You are a former American in Berlin and I am a former German Air Force soldier who used to serve in \North Germany and couldn't go to Berlin by roads because I had a US Confidential Degree. That was many a moon ago. It was too much of a process to get permission to fly, so I never bothered.
You are where I should have been at least once in my life! Now I live in North America!

Shelia, 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 Shelia.

Dear Kyle, thank you for your kind help. I am a bit overwhelmed right now and am still trying to figure out how to put my affiliate links. I have also taken some time to read other blogs from folks who are further along and also read some training on the social media ascects. I am doing well otherwise. I feel I have a decent getting started page and now I just need to get my WA links in there and also some more headers. Shelia

Kyle Premium
Here is some training on affiliate links, this should help you out here: And if you do have any specific questions or if you try to set one up and then show me where you have added it (the exact URL on your site), I can have a look and tell you what you are doing wrong.

All part of the learning curve here Shelia and something we all had to learn along the way. You are going to get the hang of things!

Kyle Premium
Nice work with your website Shelia, it is looking pretty good thus far.

My one recommendation would be to use clear and concise headlines within your content. You can do this by using h3 tags that break up your content. It will make your content much more readable.

Here is an example of what I mean:

http://waystoavoidscamsonline.com/how-to-sell-your-art-online-paint-yourself-successful

As you scroll down, you will see headlines that break apart my content and foreshadow to my audience what I am going to talk about.

Ex. Art, to be honest, is an EASY sell within the online world?

This is highly effective and will lead to much more readership of your content.
Reply
SheliaDunn Premium
Dear Kyle,
Thank you for your kind words, Kyle!

I agree with you about the headers but I am having trouble accessing that section of the builder for some reason. I can't seem to access any header sections because I cannot access that area of the toolbar. I even changed themes (which was for the better actually) and it is still the same toolbar. Is there a magic button, I accidentally pushed and this is causing this problem. I have a second website I have already started building (a personal one for writing) that has the same problem. Please advise. I need that flexibility. And again, thanks!
Shelia

Kyle Premium
I mean headlines within your actual content, not your "header". If you watch the video above it will show you exactly what i am referring to.

Your header looks fine, I see you have added an image in there that is not all that relevant and will not add much value to your visitors, you are better off adding imagery within your actual content (that is relevant to the given post) versus adding a static image within your website header that is the same on every page.

Hi Shelia,

I see that you got your account set up here at WA. Congratulations.

I really believe the key to this business is designating a set amount of time to your education. If you consistently work on the Getting Started course, you'll build your website and online business at the same time.

I know that when I first joined WA I got serious information overload. I didn't really know where to get started or what exactly I was meant to be doing.

If you haven't started the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course - that's the place to start. It'll take you through the whole process of what online marketing is, and how to build a successful website. Click the green"Get Started Here" button up on the left.

And don't be afraid to reach out to me or the community with questions when you need help. I think you'll find the WA community to be very supportive. You can always find tutorials and discussion using the top search browser here at WA as well.

Best of luck and keep working towards your goals.

Awesome Shelia, that's very cool, congrats. My suggestion would be to stick with one site (unless it's for a local business) until you get that site ranking for your specific keywords and then producing you a regular income.

Get the first site going before doing a second one.

I know that some people do two sites at a time, but I think it's best to focus your energy on one and make it complete before going to a second.

If you do get burned out on one, then it's fine to switch to the other, but in general, that's my take and most experienced online marketers take as well.

Congrats again and just stick the training, hit a weekly webinar and take it one day at a time and you'll do great.

Todd

Hi Shelia,

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. My name is Todd and I referred you here to Wealthy Affiliate through my website Learn To Grow Wealth Online.

I hope you really enjoy your week here at WA. There is a ton of info & training here, so absorb it like a sponge.

I personally started by taking the classes one day at a time and then simply took action on what I learned and I couldn't be happier with my online business.

I Make Money While I Sleep, Isn't That Cool

That being said, before you start making money, there are just three things you need to know.

1) Those who ask questions and interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their financial goals.

- Watch this video here to learn how to maximize your community reach at WA.. 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.. .

This is the first course on the Wealthy Affiliate Entrepreneur Program, and the best next step you can take. This is where I started my online business and I think you'll be pleased with the results.

3) Don't be afraid to ask questions. WA is a super friendly community, especially to newbies, so there are no dumb questions here.

Remember that you can ask any question you want in live chat, on your personal blog, or in the Getting Started Classroom here..

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/getting-started

You can also use the search bar above like Google search, just start typing in your question and you will find blogs/tutorials/classes/and Webinars that can answer your questions.

If you don't find the answer, you can always type the question below the search bar results and the WA community will help you out right away.

I'm following you now and here's my Wealthy Affiliate profile if you want to contact and/or follow me.
https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/tmaltz

You have everything you need here at WA to create a successful online business, you just need to take advantage of the education, community support, and TAKE ACTION on what you learn.

I wish you the most success with your online business and goals.

Cheers
Todd

Dear Todd,
Thank you for your nice welcome. I have really enjoyed the training so far but I am stuck. I seem to have a problem creating my first website. I do not want to go to premium until I have tested the website functions. When I tried to create my first website, it said that I have already reached maximum even though I did not create any yet. When I went o Manager this is what it says.
Hosting client with login or wa_user_id already exists: DBD::mysql::db do failed: Duplicate entry 'U-568741' for key 2 at /usr/local/share/perl/5.18.2/NicheMarketingInc/Network/Hosting/Util/UserManager.pm line 707.
I have written both Carston and Kyle personally now so hopefully this can be figured out soon. Anything you can do to help, I would greatly appreciate it.

Hi Shelia,

I've never encountered such a problem, my recommendation would be to go the SiteRubix builder by clicking the tab and then order a support ticket explaining the situation.

The support usually gets back to you right away. That's what I would do.

I've put up 7 sites or so and have never had anything like that happen. But they should be able to get it straightened out for you without a problem.
