Hi everyone. Time for an update. My name is Stephen, a Dublin lad living in Galway in the west of Ireland and I am a member here over 3 years now. I have been a chef over 20 years, semi retired now, spend most of my time writing and contributing to magazines.

I love to write, though only learned to use a computer recently. I'm a poetry fanatic and have published a book in 2012. I'm also working for a litature magazine and currently working on a few projects. I'm also a fitness and health freak and a personal trainer at times..

I have had decent success online due to WA, enough to help me on the road to enable me to concentrate on my writing full time (eventually as I still cook in a restaurant (very addictive) but have taught myself to easily build small sites that earn me money especially in the Halloween niche.

If you are new, and have questions, ask me, and if I can help I gladly will.

Hi Stephen, thanks for the follow! And great that you love cooking, would need to get some easy, idiot-proof recipes from you, as I am a hit-and-run cook (I try to spend minimum amount of time in the kitchen:). And hope to learn how to be successful online soon!

I love your bio! My father is a chef.. so by nature I love to cook and entertain. And my husband and I are die hard Halloween fanatics! (I've been actually considering that as my second niche! I have a domain name purchased and all! LOL!) We host Halloween parties every year, and host a halloween home haunt, where people from different counties drive just to see what new decorations we have put up this year! I wish you lots of success here at WA and look forward to networking with you!

Hey! Thanks for the response. And no, my real name is Heather, I just wanted to think of a user name that was inspiring. LOL I actually do have a few questions. I think I stayed up until 4am on my first day, there's just so much information. I am a little uncertain of how to analyze niches. HELP!!
Reply
Thanks so much, Sherbet! I do have about 4 things I am passionate about. I did start with the Getting Started Plan. I am still on Day 1 because I am nervous about buying a domain for the wrong niche. I am pressing on, though. I am certain of what my niches are.

Hey Champagne Wishes (Is that your real name?? :-) and welcome to WA and I'm delighted you found some of the posts funny if not a little ranty haha. You are in the right place and with the right attitude and hard work you will succeed here, it's a great place to be, I'm here near 2 years though I do not need to be. My recipes are a secret haha, need any help here with anything and if I can give it just ask.

sherbet penny Premium
Hi Heather, Ok, first of all, do not panic, and do not do too much, there is way to much info here at WA. Take your time. Now I would start on the GET STARTED PLAN. I do not know if you are planning to stay for more than a month but I would start there, where have you started?
Now, if you are looking to find a niche I have huge advice for you I wish someone would have giving to me, start of with something you are interested in and something that you know. Do you like cooking, poetry, horses and on and on, write down what you would love to write and talk about and something you could be passionate about and able to connect with people. Think long term, think, you would like to have some websites two years down the line that make you money that you are proud off and love to write about.
There are millions of niches to find, build affiliate and AdSense sites for and make a ton of money from, but you have to have a lot of experience before you can get to this level.
So start with something you will have a lot of passion for and it will be so much easier. As soon as you become comfortable with writing online, building websites (easier than you think) you will gradually move on, creating more sites and the income will follow.
Reply
sherbet penny Premium
Yep keep pressing on with the plan, remember, you do not have to buy a domain, make a site, or push Wealthy Affiliate on friends and family, just move along, do all the training, learn everything to get your head around it, do not rush, and in the mean time, choose the niche you are passionate about and ask yourself how your training will help you progress. Of course taking action is the key, but you can not take the right action with out the right knowledge, take your time.

It is great article, very well written but what I would do now and again that I have found works well with my articles is dark bullet points. Also, you have mentioned 5 places to earn money using your skills, I would write a top 5 article next using those examples explain a little of the pros and cons of each. With that top 5, I would write two similar articles (not the same) and send one to ezine too and see which directory gives you the best views and ctr's, I tend to find ezine works best for me.

Thank you for the Add, I enjoyed your previous posts and conversations. I also took a peek at your blog, and am impressed to say the least. I had intended to use mine as a landing page originally as I knew I was going to go after a few Local Market deals right away. Those Local Market clients will require me to niche article market them, as well as other full campaigns. However, I do not think I want http://www.bestrealinternetmarketing.com to be my landing page for WA Super Affiliate site after all.

As such it will either have to serve as a real blog site or sit in my inventory, as I am going to have a few other blog sites up in the next few days as well. I am going to enjoy having conversations with you, as you seem active, and have a great sense of humor, yet obviously serious about your business. That is my natural disposition as well, enjoy it daily as fun versus torture, but take it serious as a business and not a hobby.

I'm glad you stumbled upon me somehow, and requested to be added, as I believe it is I that have gained much already from you. Thank you so much!

That sounds wonderful to me, there is always more than one way to get from A to Z, and the way that suites the individual best, is of course the one that is best.

I am IM all the way, my goal is to become a very serious SEO expert, but there is no time table on it for me, as I learn more everyday, and that is what truly makes me happy. I may become sad once I know it all lol.

Thank you so much for the advice! I want to do all of those things, but am busy with a client on his business now. It is a pretty vast concept where we are revenue sharing the online marketing, but I own all of the content and domains etc. He owns the physical real estate and market. I am VERY fortunate to be able to land several niches this way, so that is suddenly my priority, and laying the groundwork is barely starting.

You know, this is one of the best buddy messages I have received here cheers haha. You seem like a very enthusiastic person with drive and energy and I love that. Yes, that blog started out to promote WA but it has actually helped people which I'm really happy about. I only started IM over a year ago but it is not my passion or intentions.
By trade I am a slave, sorry, chef but my true passion is writing and I entered IM so I can create some income coming in online with in 2 years so I can fully concentrate on my writing and get some books together. Though I do not make thousands nor want to I make decent money and hopefully soon, maybe a year I will have it all set up that I can break the shackles of cheffing, have an income coming in and get the hairy finger out and get publishing which is my dream. I work hard at this, am serious about making it work,,but the goal is not successful marketer, no, 1 book published and I'll kiss the moon with rubber lips.

I run at night when there is no one around, so a marathon with tons of people was quite different, but I actually really liked it...little tip though, don't start out near the back, it does affect your time and your running method until the pack finally disperses. But it is really fun passing people ;)

I checked out your health and fitness site. I've always had an interest in organic foods myself and have put in some miles running and in the gym over they years myslef. One of the domains I bought when I originally joined WA is in the diet, exercise, and health area. Work and life took me away from WA for a while but I'll deploy it this year for certain. I'm glad you found me as maybe we can collaborate in the future. Cheers, Dano

Great Dano, yes, that site is a work in progress and is also a more personal site as I'm a fitness and health freak, but collaborations can always be a good thing.

it took me a few months to make money, say, sep 10, in which I stay away from the make money online niche(well overpopulated) and I bagan by teaching myself how to build websites for the Halloween niche, which brought me in money, and still is. Never never give up. I'm know guru, but I know it is possible to make cash. If you need a PM I can mail you with what ever steps I took, and maybe it may help you.

Add Away Jamie. Buddy's is what WA is all about. So your on lesson 3. My Advice Jamie is, don't get frustrated when you can't move on. Take your time, go back over everything.

At the start they say to email your friends and family etc about WA, that's just for practice and I wouldn't worry about it, It's not important.

In Taking action, I began to learn how to build websites, using site rubix, and now wordpress, I have never owned a website, and I'm pretty proud of myself ha. I would never have done it without WA. Trust me, It was very frustration, and you will feel this at times, trying to figure out how to upload things etc. is head wrecking, but the feeling when you do do it is fantastic, ask for help here or the forum when you need it, be persistent.

I do not know how your writing skills are, do not be afraid of article writing if you have never written one before, writing an article is just you writing as you speak, been yourself but knowing alot about the topic you are writing about(research my friend).

So in taking action, when you are waiting for the next task, go over to the training and pick something to read up on, or go to site rubix and mess about with it, playing around makes you a little comfortable with the tools, will help you down the line.

I'm no expert trust me haha but if you need anything, drop me a PM anytime and I 'll see what I can do for you, any questions, fire away. Have a great day, Stephen.

Hi, Stephen. Some 25 years ago, I thought I was a poet. Wrote about 120 of them. Unfortunately, only one good one.

Hey,

Yea, I know what you are saying, the problem is that perhaps one of those people are master of direct linking, and the other is master of something else and failed at direct linking.. I know some people do different things.. If the merchant has a great merchant page then direct linking isnt so bad.. Personally I have rebuild merchant pages for products and NEVER SENT MY TRAFFIC TO THE ORIGINAL MERCHANT PAGE.. I did that because their mechant page converted terribly... haha However sometimes direct linking is okay.. It all depends on where you are losing people.. and where the system breaks down.. also it depends on the "Need" factor as well... haha For example what "Need" does that product fill, and can you sell it to a different niche that they are not targeting because it will solve their problem better? There is a lot to take into account..

So yes and no to direct linking.. haha I do however usually build a landing page to send my traffic to..

Yea finding a good step by step process is tough because there are so many to chose from.. Just take your time and work hard at which ever one you chose.. If you get board you can check out EOS... I know its "Just another program..." but the step by step toward running campaigns is very clear cut... So if you are having trouble figuring out where to put your first down first you may want to take a look at it..


I hope this helps out(:

And let me know if you need more help.. you know where to find me.. haha

Hey Pete, great to here from you and thank you for the interest. It's going slowly, which is not to bad, I'm in no rush but would like to get the practical started very soon.

Yes, ye know, I've been reading a little to much, and doesn't help when your reading one person saying article redirecting is bad and another saying it's great, can get very confusing lol.

But I've decided just to start building a couple of landing pages and practice my article writing, just to see if I can. Do you think it's better than just writing direct articles.

As you can see, I'm not having a problem with the information, it's that first step in the right direction I'm gasping for, and I'm sure when I get it I'll start flying in to it, will see.
Thanks Pete for the interest. Hows things with yourself, Stephen.

Hahaha nice one Pete, fair play to you. Ye, I'm into building landing pages, well, Trying too ha, the whole day for crying out loud lol, so slow I feel, but I'm just building a landing page, for this site WA. really so I can practice and get my head around Site Rubix.

Yep, It's taking a while ha, but I'm actually enjoying it, I'll then get to practice some articles, to try send traffic to it, don't really care about making money, yet, just the practice of these landing pages, and some bloody speed ha lol! And I'll be a happy lad.

Thanks for the reply, hey, where are you, are you in the states, happy paddies day from all of us here in Ireland, I have a heavy night ahead of me, though I hardly drink anymore, I'm a lightweight these days, the sniff of beer will knock me out ha,

Well Nathan, I'm new myself, but my advice to you is just take your time and don't rush, It's a lot of information, set a good study plan and enjoy it. It will all start making sense the more you get in to it.

Hi Welcome. I love poetry also. I have written so much but have never published. Also a goal for me.

Well as for being new, you are here and that is a GREAT first step!

Thank you Daniel, and I hope you get published one day, or even send of to a few magazines online or competitions and get your writings out there, nothing feels as good.

Hi Sherbet, Thanks for being my buddy! You know I'm new to this too. Don't really know much about any of this so maybe we can struggle along together?

That will be no problem, but I'm sure it will be a small struggle and one giant step, once we stick with it.

Love that you are a chef. I'm a decent cook, but not a chef. All the best to you. Just made you my buddy. Joan

Thank you Joan. Yes it's a great trade, but my through passion is writing, so I'm hear to learn but it will also help my writing skills hopefully, and learning a new trade now is exciting. Nice to meet you, take-care.

Hey, Stephen! Welcome to WA and thanks for adding me as your buddy!

And don't worry ... you're not in over your head. It just feels a little like you're drowning right now. lol

We all feel that way when we start something new. Just hang in there, take it one step at a time, and you'll get there.

Let me know if there's anything I can help you with.

Yeah, I know exactly what you mean. I feel like I've faked my way through every job I had until I learned enough to feel comfortable doing it. I was always hoping nobody figured it out. lol

Thanks for the kind words on my blog. I hope it helps a few people.

Thank you Roy, the way I'm looking at it is, I was way in over my head in kitchen when I started cheffing, and after 17 years it's second nature. Like everything in a new trade, takes time. Your newbie page is very helpful and when I see other newbies panicking I'll be sure to recommend and send them on to your page. Thank you again.

Hi Stephen,
I am graphic designer, but I was also in same business (though not as a chef). At one point in 2008 I even had Italian Restaurant :-)
So... IT IS TIME for new challenge.

Wow, nice one you decided to change. It's a tough business been in the catering industry, and I've been in it too long yet I believe I'm still young enough for a new career/challenge. I became a chef to travel, had a great career but got to keep life interesting, and change now and again. Good luck with everything and nice to meet you.

You are welcome. If you can follow instructions that is the place because Roger puts them all on video. Easy to follow steps and then all you have to do is to promote it. (write articles)
