About Siong
Joined July 2016
My name is Siong from Borneo Island. I am 64 year old fighting Type 2 Diabetes day and night.

I have been trying to earn an online income for a few of years now and have only made barely enough to pay back my expenses for PPC traffics like Bing Ads and some other solo ads.

I joined WA as free member months before going premium. At that time I found it a little overwhelming and confusing and decided not to pay much attention.

I don't know why, I saw a recent review on WA, comparing it to other programs all over the internet, I decided to re-visit WA and see if I can stick for a while, take the lessons and see if I can finally succeed at earning an online income.

Websiting and blogging is about sharing your thoughts and your experiences, or what is happening around you. It’s about sharing what you learned. As you start a blog, you will find yourself always learning new things within your areas of interest, so you can keep on sharing without running out of ideas.

My biggest challenge is my lacking in English and the fact that I am no writer. Almost of my contents come from the articles provided by the products owners. So Google is going to see my website as containing duplicate contents and this is so worrying and saddening to me. Because of that I have lttile hope that I will ever make money. Sad :)

Although starting a blog is easy, maintaining it is not. Coming up with interesting ideas, interacting with readers and building a audience around the blog are awesome challenges that would force you to keep learning and growing.

I know earning extra money by niche blogging is something that is attainable once you learned to do it the correct way, create engaging content of great value and grow an audience around it. Many big blogs make millions of dollars every year just by blogging.

And me? I am not a millionaire, I haven't even make my first dollar yet here in WA. And I am spending USD49 every month for this program here. Consider it as an investment for now. That being said in business;

- rule #1: never lose money
- rule #2: repeat rule #1

I work as a senior technical support engineer supporting Radiotherapy Cancer Treatment System. From my profile pictures you can see, that is me working on a Tomotherapy System and the other picture working on a CyberKnife System.

Siong, nice to hear from you. I look forward to getting to know you my new WA friend.

You current career sounds fascinating. Extending it or something new, into internet marketing would be wonderful for you.

By the way the English in your profile is fine. It has few areas with any issue so basically these are unnoticeable.

Work hard, have some fun and don’t forget to ask questions.

A very nice boss once told me, ‘Helen, when you ask a silly question everyone else breathes a collective sigh of relief because they don’t have to!’ And that is so true. No question is silly so ask away.

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

Now let us keep in touch.

Thank you for this follow; I look forward to networking with you!
I took a quick look at your natural cure site....only looked at one article about 2 minutes plan....but no links within article to whatever you are promoting? A reader would not know where to go or what to do?

Greetings Siong,

I appreciate the "follow"; I'm not sure what caused you to do so, but thank you.

You write very well, I find it hard to believe that English is a challenge for you. I noticed your bio is dated July of this year, I do hope that you have taken advantage all of the training and lessons here at Wealth Affiliate. I'll be coming up to 2 months by the end of this week, and, although I haven't made any money yet, I have no desire to leave this platform. It's taken me longer than I had anticipated to grasp all the information given through the lessons, but I've accepted the fact that I may move a little slower than others, but that's OK.

I really wish you well Siong, and I would be very interested to hear, more of your journey.

All the best,

Veronica

Hi Siong, thanks for following me. I think you are doing the right thing by asking the Community for advise since most of us are here with the same intentions of setting up an income stream from internet marketing. Like any other business that is new, your internet business will also take a few years to produce the expected income. Thank God for bringing you to WA where you can learn how to do it and keep at it till you accomplish your objectives.

All the best to your success.

Good day to you Siong, my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. To answer your question, in two words, NEVER QUIT! This is what you should do, always keep trying. Don't be afraid to think outside the box, take some risks, work outside your comfort zone. As long as you continue to add to your knowledge you will start making progress and soon, never look back.
I look forward to working with you and invite you to enjoy the learning experience you are engaged in and I wish you much success and prosperity in your journey.
Ken

Hi Siong,

I went through almost what you went through in the beginning.
But, my English is good. I just didn't know much about computers.....except email.
I met someone here, name Chris Scott, who has been teaching me. You should contact him. I call him Dr. Teddy Bear.

I wish you much success.

Hello Siong and welcome to wealthy affiliate.
Since you joined in July you will have come to realise that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
Can I suggest you browse some more of the 200+ blogs I have published within WA.
Thank you for the follow and I will follow you as well.
You get stuck you ask ok.
Enjoy your day.

Hi again Siong it’s a good idea (only if you want to) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.
Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing but.
But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.
Enjoy your day.

Hi Sion,
Thank you for following me. it is a pleasure to connect with you.
After reading your profile information, I see that you have the background to create a profitable business on line..
From what I can see, you are doing excellent, English is a very complicated language. However, with my intention to help you, just like others have helped me, with ideas on how to check any blog before posting to confirm it is Grammatically correct, below I am sending a site that is free and many of us here at WA, use.

Thank you again and we will be in touch,

Hello Siong,♫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

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my websites. My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live a month ago and the one on sleep apnea has been up for almost four months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.

I got a question.

Often an affiliate product comes with affiliate tools which often include articles for blog post. If I post the article on my blog and someone somewhere post the same article on his/her blog, will that cause an issue with Google search engine? I can alter a little bit, but how much to alter?

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! :)

Well Siong, you're a little over a couple of weeks into your free membership and I wanted to check-in one last time before communication within the WA community is gone for good unless you become a premium member (that happens on day 17) so if you have any lingering questions or something that I can help with, now would be the time to ask! If you have any questions just let me know and I'll do everything I can to help.

Hey Siong, when you first joined Wealthy Affiliate through me I mentioned a bonus if you upgrade to premium within the first seven days. I just wanted to let you know that I'm now giving that bonus to all members regardless of what day they upgrade, so if you decide to take the leap and get really serious about your internet business and working through the lessons here at WA, I'll make sure to send it your way as soon as you upgrade. I hope everything is going well! As always, let me know if you need anything.

Hey Siong, how's everything coming along now that you've been a member for a few days? I hope you've found your way into the "Get Started Here" training toward the top of the menu on the left and that you're enjoying yourself so far!

Some people gravitate towards the "Affiliate Bootcamp" training which is something I don't recommend right off of the bat if you've never made money in internet marketing before. I have a detailed blog post covering this topic if it's something you're wrestling with and you'd like me to send you the link.

I know that may be a bit confusing, but if you have any questions at all don't hesitate to ask! I hope you're enjoying your time here so far :)

Hey Siong, I was just scrolling over a few things in my dashboard and saw that you signed up a few days ago but haven't completed your profile yet. Is there anything I can help you with? I hope you've at least enjoyed a little bit of the content and community that's come together here!


If you get a couple of minutes, completing your profile will help you get A LOT more out of Wealthy Affiliate. People are much more likely to interact and engage with you if they can feel that personal connection, so just keep that in mind if you plan on pursuing affiliate marketing and engaging with this community!


Also, here's a free lesson I put together on the 5 Rules for Succeeding in Affiliate Marketing: http://youtu.be/p3iYfoy4SOQ


That will take less than 5 minutes to watch, and should be VERY helpful as you continue pursuing affiliate marketing.


Best of luck to you and, again, let me know if I can answer any questions you have!

Hey Siong! I wanted to start you off with a quick note that could SIGNIFICANTLY impact your success with Wealthy Affiliate. Read this entire message if you are serious about being successful in internet marketing (it's lengthy, but I'm not joking when I say that this advice could make or break your entire internet marketing career):


1) You'll need to work consistently and hard. There's going to be a lot to learn in the beginning and you may feel overwhelmed at a point, but keep pressing forward and you'll make it through. It happened to me and every other successful internet marketer at some point, and the only way to become successful in this industry is to push past that overload whenever you get there.


Do yourself a favor and commit to a number of hours that you can work each week right now. It doesn't have to be massive, but it should be more than 10 between evenings and weekends at least. Just remember the more you work each week, the faster you'll learn and draw closer to success.


After you've picked the number of hours you can work each week, commit to working that much for AT LEAST six months - a year would be better. You won't see results immediately in this industry, and being consistent is the key. Pick a number of hours you can work each week, then work those hours for at least six months. It's something you've probably never done in this industry, and this advice alone will make a HUGE difference in your chances at succeeding with internet marketing as long as you take it seriously and STICK WITH IT.


2) I recommend starting off with this training (which you can access with your free account): It just scratches the surface of the MASSIVE amount of helpful content in WA, but you'll get a good "feel" for the teaching style here and begin to see the power of all of the great things they're teaching here at Wealthy Affiliate.


3) DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE COMMUNITY. Two of the best places you can go to for help when you get stuck are the "Live Chat" and the "Classrooms" sections located on the panel to your left. You'll find direction and inspiration through the community here, which is one of the reasons I recommend WA so highly.


4) Finally, you don't ever have to upgrade to the premium account here at Wealthy Affiliate if you don't want to. You'll have limited access using your free account for as long as you wish. HOWEVER, if you're serious about internet and affiliate marketing then you should invest in the premium membership for AT LEAST one month. You could look back on it years from now and see it as a pivotal moment in your internet marketing career, but you never will if you don't at least give it a try.


Check it out for a few days though - you don't need to upgrade right now. Make sure it's a good fit for you, and if you upgrade within the first 7 days you'll receive your first month's membership at more than 50% off. I keep my membership active and recurring every month so I can be here for the people I refer like you, so realize that I'm putting my money where my mouth is here!


On top of that, if you upgrade to a premium membership at the discounted rate within the first 7 days I have a special bonus EXCLUSIVE to people that join WA through me and upgrade within the first week of creating their free account. This bonus will show you how to be twice as successful with WA or any other legitimate internet marketing program out there and gives you some very valuable video lessons (which I recorded for you personally, of course) to ensure you get off to the right step in your internet marketing business.


I keep a close watch on the list of people that upgrade from starter to premium, so I'll send the bonus your way within 24 hours. If you upgrade and don't receive it within that time frame for some reason, just post on my WA profile and let me know!


I don't offer that bonus so you'll spring for the membership and make me more money, I offer the bonus just in case you needed that tiny "push" to make sure you invest in this training because I know that you will use for the rest of your IM career and it could change your life. I've referred hundreds of people now and I have NEVER had anyone tell me they were dissatisfied.


Best of luck to you! You're about to embark on a journey that could change your life forever, so make sure you take it seriously, put in the time and effort, and expect great things in return!


You know where to find me,
Ian Pribyl


P.S. I know I've thrown A LOT of information your way in this message, but I wanted to give you one last thing. Here is a video tour of the members' area to help ensure you get the most out of your free membership as possible: http://youtu.be/NDmMcMtMB8c


Sorry for sending so much your way at once, I just want to set you up for success as much as I possibly can!
