About Simonreap
Joined May 2014
Hi I’m Simon from the UK. I've been a travelling for 14 years since leaving my homeland on a never ending adventure. In 2010 on whilst traveling though Asia, Europe and Central America my long term partner and I first started meeting digital nomads who were working online and creating a location independent lifestyle. This inspired us to create a living working online and so we set up base in Amsterdam, started a family and begun working on our dream of living from our laptops.

I've been working online for the last 4 years. It was hard at first and i really struggled to get going. First I ran a tourist website about Amsterdam before doing all kinds of Freelance work online. This was really hard and i wish now I had something like Wealthy Affiliate to guide me along the way. For the last year and a half I've been successfully using attraction marketing strategies to build my business in the online network marketing industry, which is similar to affiliate marketing but more product then passion focused.

I created a starter account for Wealthy Affiliate back in 2014 after my friend suggested I check it out but I never had time to get involved. Roll forward to the end of 2015 and I've finally decided to move away from Network Marketing, build a business around my passions and earn an income from the WA Affiliate Program. Wealthy affiliate is the obvious place for me to be right now.

I've decided to take this business seriously and gone all in as premium member. So far I love the features, community support and the training. I can also create unlimited websites here too so it's an absolute no brainier for me and I have some cool ideas for future sites already. It's an absolute bargain compared to what I've been paying for with other companies. It's so important to invest in your education and everything I need is available here.

Excited to join everyone on this journey and looking forward to getting to Las Vegas via the WA Affiliate Program.

Cheers Simon

Hi Simon,
Although it took me some time to understand, join WA and wrap my head around all the information given. I'd like to thank you as it was your videos I initially watched that brought me here. I've only been a premium member for one day and learned so much. I'm determined and look forward to great financial success and the opportunity to pay it forward. Again thank you!

Hello Simon
U were the one that got me into WA back in Aug of 2016. I have been in out of hospitals for awhile so I was not active in WA till about 2 weeks ago. I have now started the training and got a website up with 3 pages so far. I am on Course 1 Lesson 6. I have had 2, I think they r called "organic" visitors? ... not sure but they r not affiliated with WA at all. And they both indicated that they would like to join, woohoo! How they found my site I do not know as it has only been online for 12 days. I have joined premium (good for u) :), and I just wanted to say thank you for showing me this opportunity! I could not be happier with what WA has to offer!
Anyway, I wish u success in all your future endeavours and again thank you.

Hey, Simon, Thanks for inviting me to join Wealthy Affiliate. So far I'm impressed, but I still have some small doubts and questions. I know this is very forward of me, but I need your help/opinion on something. It's one of the things that's shaping my decision on whether I go premium or not. I have a home based travel business it's very slow and I'm struggling to generate any income worth mentioning. I found this affiliate marketing site that offers a lot and it seems that it could benefit my business tremendously, but honestly I can't afford the price tag. Would you be willing to look at it, and honestly tell me if Wealthy Affiliate could do what they're charging $2,995 to do? The site is travelerrr, once there scroll down to the plans & pricing and look at all they offer with their Elite package. Thanks and I anxiously await your honest response.

Hi Sean, i've taken a quick look. I actually did something very similar to this a few years back but spent a lot more money then that with hardly any results. I'm talking ten times as much for an online franchise I got involved with doing almost the same thing. The big issue i had is that with these sorts of commissions you need a lot of traffic and there are so many competitors out there. My site was about Amsterdam but there were already so many existing. I had awesome content but could not get it to rank in Google. If you decided to pay for Google adwords etc you'd even be competing with companies like Booking.com etc directly. Unless you have a extremely unique niche i'm not sure you'll make any money and Travel is so popular that its hard to break through. I dont see any testimonials on their site from all the happy paying customers getting rich from this service. They are selling a product that might not work, there is no guarantee and if they know it doesn't work then it's a scam. But how can you tell, only by looking at testimonials and researching with people doing it already. There is probably a reason for no testimonials on the website. If you want my honest opinion. I would not do it. I've been there and wasted 3 years of my life and a lot of money. You'd be far better off choosing a niche that you are extremely passionate about and spending the rest of your life working on your passion and becoming an authority in your niche. At least you'd be happy everyday doing something you enjoy and you can build up slowly by yourself and make an income online. This is what Wealthy affiliate teaches you to do and there are a lot of happy people using WA whose testimonials you can read.
