About Sjenkinsjr
Joined April 2016
I am a struggling freelance graphic design looking for internet success and a different way of life. I have an Associates degree in Specialized Technology (multimedia), I worked in Security for 8 years and just started a new job in manufacturing which makes me miserable.

Currently I am looking for a different way of life, the pursuit of internet marketing success and happiness. I hope to gather as much information as I can from Wealthy affiliate and finally earn the success I have been seeking for the last 10 years.
Sjenkinsjr's Goals 3
Money Goals
Currently I would be happy earning any where from $2000 to $4000 a month but that could change as I start to see some success and progress. Realistically I would be happy to see a couple of hundred dollars a month at first, something to reassure me that making money online in the comfort of my home is possible and not something only marketing geniuses can do!

I would be ecstatic making anything over $4000 or anything in the $1000s for that matter... The most I have ever made on freelance graphic design was $700 so making a consistent amount of money a month would make me extremely excited and motivate me to work harder.

I am willing to invest all my spare time, when I am not working or sleeping and then some. Whatever it takes to earn success...

Hey Salvatore,

You can definitely achieve these goals and I know that you will make it happen. The key is to dedicate yourself to your training here at WA. Follow the training, take action on what you learn, and ask questions when you have them.

It all starts with a goal - you can now start working toward it!

Talk to you soon,

Carson

Sjenkinsjr: Hello and thanks for following me back. It looks like those little statutes are lovin you back! ha ha.
It's good to meet you and I hope that you sincerely do very well at WA.
I am currently running myself ragged trying to get a new business up and running as the silent partner. I don't get to say much just keep handing over money! I'll be glad when it is up and running so I can get on to other things, like my blogs here.
I understand miserable, believe me. I've been there and done that for 35 years and of course, I'm not doing that anymore.
Well, I wish the best of luck to you, if you need any help at all, just feel free to call upon me.? Okay? Anytime.

Hi Salvatore!

I am still relatively new here at WA myself (almost 3 months now), learning the ropes and doing the training. I have come to realize that building a strong network of like-minded individuals is an important key to us being successful in the online business world.

I have just added you to my network of WA friends and hope you could add me to yours in return :) Rick

sjenkinsjr Premium
Building a strong network and support system is important. I found that wealthy affiliate is the back bone to a succeful online marketing business... The only issue I have found is I want to devote most of my time to it and when i don't I'm feel like I'm cheating myself!

I'm glad to connect and look forward to learn from one another.

Totally agree with you there...I work 40 hours a week and have to maximize what time I do have to networking and site development. If I don't get a lesson completed or rip through a bunch of posts I feel I accomplished nothing.

I wrote a post yesterday on a keyword I found on jaaxy and one today. I just signed up for premium membership but hope in the first month I can earn enough to pay for the membership price after the $19 promotional price...

As always I appreciate opinions, help and any information to push my in the right direction or turn away from the wrong direction before I waste valuable time.

Here is the blog (http://simplelogodesign.siterubix.com), I will be working on some graphics as soon as I have the time... It is kind of hard, I have been trying to devote as much time as possible but I am on a 12 1/2 hour rotation shift for 4 days at work and I only have about two hours before I have to go to sleep.

Just feel free to give feedback and let me know what I am doing wrong and any pointers you might have.

nathaniell Premium
What's up Salvatore, just wanted to see how you were doing and if you need any help. Let me know!

BTW in case you missed the message, you also get free keyword searches in Jaaxy (http://www.jaaxy.com) that can help you with finding topics to write about on your website.

If you need some help understanding Jaaxy just respond to this message and I can send a training video to you.

PS. I found a few more success stories I wanted you to see!

Thank you I will take a look at them....

nathaniell Premium
Great! I love to inspire newbies with links like that.
Reply
sjenkinsjr Premium
I think my concern is my niche... It is logo design but the question that I keep asking myself is Can I find topics all the time to write about on the website about logo design or will I hit a stand still?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Hmm, yes, that's a great question to be asking yourself. If it's something you're interested in, you can start your website on the topic right now, then you can always change to a different website later, or add more ideas to your niche later.

For example, if you start out with logo design now, and realize there's not enough to write about, you can "add" other elements like photoshop tutorials, gimp tutorials, newbie tips, and advanced tricks later.

Actually, now that I think about it, Logo Design has a lot of stuff to talk about! You can even talk about how to make money with your logo designs using things like Fiverr or Upwork.com to get clients.
Reply
sjenkinsjr Premium
I use fiverr... your right guess I am worried about nothing! I just need this to succeed and I am constantly worried about making the wrong moves.
Reply
nathaniell Premium
You will definitely be making some wrong moves along the way (EVERYONE does!), so that shouldn't be a big worry lol. It's gonna happen for sure!

But those are great questions to be asking right now anyway :) Let me know if any more pop up along the way.
Reply
nathaniell Premium
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! :)

Hey Salvatore, I just wanted to check in and see if had a chance to start exploring Wealthy Affiliate. If you haven't started the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course - that's the best place to start. It'll take you through the whole process of how to start your website and how the making money stuff works.

Click the green"Get Started Here" button on the left.

PS. One thing people get stuck on a lot is picking a topic or "niche" for their website. If you are having trouble thinking of something to make your website about let me know and we can figure it out together.

sjenkinsjr Premium
Nathan,

I am in the "Get started here process", I'm sure I will have some issues picking a niche for my website, so I will most definitely accepted your helping hand in the near future!

Thanks,
Salvatore Jenkins

nathaniell Premium
Finding a good niche seems like a tough task, but it's actually pretty easy. Actually, ANY niche can make money, so you definitely should not worry if your niche is profitable or not. As far as competition goes, that's also something to not worry about. If there's competition, it just means people are making money. That means you can make some too! As time progresses, new products come out, new technology is introduced, new ideas formed, and each change is an opportunity for "the new kid" to get a foothold and overtake established websites.

So the big question is not "what" is going to make money, but "what do you want to make money with?"

In other words, what are your own interests?
What do you think would be interesting to research and write about?
What do you want to help people with?

A good sentence to help you decide your niche is "I want to help people _____"

Helping people is the best way to make money in any business. Everyone wins. Short of that, pick something that you just find interesting.

There are literally thousands of affiliate programs, products, and ways to make money in any niche or industry if you get creative. All of that will come into focus in Level 3 of your training, so for now, we just need to look at getting your topic chosen, your website built, and then start creating awesome content for your business!
