About Silverwings
Joined June 2018
Susan Holmes here. You can find me on FB as Susan Pierce (maiden name) from good ole Narka, Kansas.
I've been trying at affiliate marketing for years with no real success. I went to Network Marketing and that was working pretty good until I ran out of warm market. Eventually every one sort of fell off the wagon and I was left to my own devises.

I know i CAN do this! Am willing to take all the help and coaching necessary to get it done! And I will in return do the same for those coming after me. There is just SO very much to learn. I love the way so much is broken down into steps here. I suffer badly from "LOOK SQUIRREL" syndrome. When visiting other sites etc I see things I want to know how to do and things that I know need to be done to have the success I know I can have that it makes the baby steps feel like I'm not moving!

Patience GRASSHOPPER! I can do this!

So get to coaching. I'm ready to learn.

Hello Susan And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined last year and with your other online experience you will know that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve and there is always something new to learn.

You must keep referring to the training (it does get updated from time to time).

If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 480+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me a message anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.

Have a great Friday.

Thank you Robert!! I'm get very overwhelmed when it comes to anything other than content. I have no problem creating content but the techie stuff frustrates me because I never have any idea what I'm doing. (slow learner) There are so many things I would like to do but still have no idea how. And there is so much training here that I struggle to find exactly what I'm looking for. I appreciate your offer to help! I'll be sure to take you up on that!

I know I've been here almost a year but I'm still feel so far behind. It's not for lack of trying but more for giving up and settling! LOL

No probs Susan and if/when you read my blogs make sure you choose the ones that will help you in conjunction with whatever training you are currently taking.
You get stuck, you get in touch with a Private Message.
Bear in mind the time differences though.
Also I'm in the process of moving apartments so a lot of my time is already spoken for.
Right now though I'm off home to make myself some eats.
Maybe catch you later if I get on the net.

I have had that same syndrome for years, but now that I have semi-retired, and here at Wealthy Affiliate I am going to follow leaders as I did when I was successful in Network Marketing. The warm market is way gone for me, and I decided to follow the newer techniques to building out a group on Facebook and other ways to derive leads to see what I have to offer. Hit me up on a pm sometime. Love to chat. And no you are not too old!
Take care,

Hi Susan.
I love your energy :)
You definitely can do this and you can do it Squirrel style lol
Your determination is coming through strongly.
There is lots to learn so enjoy the scenery. It's different everyday :)
I have had many frustrating moments with technology. It takes me a week to do an article lol so it slows down my training but I know if I keep following the steps, all this is worth it.
You got this!
We got this!

Hello Susan, I am glad to see you post you real name on your bio. What you did not post is where in the world do you abode. I am a married, for 65 year, old man who got interested in internet marketing and WA 3 years ago. I have had some success, but I have to spend my time doing commercial real estate appraisals.

As to coaching I would advise following all of the training and keeping a positive attitude. Befriend me on FB Ray Brannum Guntersville, AL and visit my site raybrannum.com for a good lead to a great affiliate program selling CBD.

Wishing you the very best in your affiliate marketing venture.
You have a beautiful smile.

Hey Susan and welcome to WA. I wish you a lot of fun and even more success here. Remember: The community is here to help you (and you are always welcome to return the favor once you feel ready to do so). Do not hesitate to reach out and ask for help!

A big part of your journey here will be interacting with other members and writing and receiving comments on your blog posts! When I started my journey, writing comments each and every day was kind of a challenge. Today, it has become a good habit for me (and a good practice to become a better writer) to comment on AT LEAST two blog posts per day. If that sounds a bit intimidating, fear not :-) I have put a training together that hopefully will help you to get you started - I'd love to hear what you think about it! All the best,
silverwings Premium
Thanks for the encouraging words...I’m really feeling like I need them! lol

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! :)

I and many others have your back!

Best of success!

Ok Thanks Mike! I do need help! In choosing a domain name. I've been taught to always BRAND yourself. So do I choose my own name for my website or do I choose something in regards to my niche?

Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate Susan!

My name is Scott and it's a pleasure to make your acquaintance. You may remember me from my website A Work At Home Business! I'm absolutely thrilled to see that you have signed up and are ready to get to work building an online business.

Building a business can be extremely overwhelming and confusing in itself so I don't want to add to your confusion or overwhelm you any more than you already are.

Starting out, there are only 2 things you need to know.

1. People who TAKE ACTION by asking questions and interacting within the community are much more likely to be successful and learn this stuff faster than someone who joins and does nothing.

2. The level 1 certification course will explain the process of how to make money online and you should have a pretty solid foundation built by the end of this course.

Did you know you can have your first website up and running by the end of lesson 4? Pretty crazy ain't it?

Click the link below to get started on your first lesson *****Gain Access To My Awesome Bonuses*****

For starters, you're going to receive a massive discount of 62% off your first month. This comes out to only $19 which is an amazing deal by itself.

BONUS #1- Gain Instant access to a 3 part video training series where Kyle (Co-Owner of WA) takes you by the hand and walks you through how to create product reviews.

This will give you the basics on how to create product reviews and how to structure them properly.

BONUS #2- You will gain exclusive access to my personal 1 on 1 mentoring and help and support. I'm sure you have seen other Internet marketing gurus out there charging upwards of $2,000 or more for this same kind of support.

Like I said earlier, people who take action are more likely to be successful and this is why I call this my Action Takers Bonus!

This incredible offer is only valid for your first 7 days so don't miss out!

Also, don't forget if you get stuck or have any questions you can respond directly to this message or drop me a message on my profile. Just thought I'd drop by and give you a personal welcome to the community and get you started down the right path to building an online business Susan

I could use a little help with choosing my niche and domain name. I love love love genealogy. And would like to make that my niche. I’ve always been told to brand myself. So how do I name my web page to go with both? If not genealogy, I could go with sewing or crafts, scrapbooking maybe. Or horses! Or dogs! Or animals in general. Idk what would you suggest? I did some searching and did find a few affiliate offers in the genealogy area, but seems a bit limited.
scottdogg187 Premium
Hi Susan,

When choosing a niche its imperative that you go with something that you're passionate about and something you could see yourself writing about for years to come.

Before you can find that perfect niche there are a few questions you need to ask yourself.

1. Is ______ something you could see yourself writing about for the next 3 or 4 years without getting bored with it or running out of things to write about?
2. Does_______ excite you whenever you think about it and do you feel like you have a good amount of knowledge about this topic to help other people?
3. What group of people are you looking to help in this niche? The more you narrow this down and the more targeted you get the better your chances are of being successful.

If you base your niche on something you enjoy doing or a hobby of yours, the chances of you being successful have just doubled.

If you pick a niche based on how much money it could make you then you'll have very limited success in the online world.

Anyone of these niches would be great but you would, of course, need to narrow this down to a specific topic of interest.

Out of all the things you've listed above which one are you the most passionate about?

Once you narrow this down and choose the one you are most passionate about I can help you out even further.

For right now I would suggest that you start out with the free websites here at WA until you have an idea of which way you want to go first and choose a domain name after you have determined what direction you want to go in.

Also, June happens to be research month here at Wealthy Affiliate and there are 4 live training classes that are devoted to choosing a niche, doing research, and learning how to find affiliate programs that are relevant to this niche.

Kyle has also blogged about this as well and has broken this down into 3 easy ways to find a niche and you can read all about this below. I hope this helps Susan and please let me know if you need any further help with this.

I hope you're having an awesome weekend Susan and I look forward to your reply.
