About SKeighley
Joined May 2016
Welcome to my profile.
Hi, my name is Simon, I live in Bradford, the sunny side of the UK. Happily married to Tracy, we love walking, gardening, DIY and vacating on holidays, Lanzarote and Mallorca being our favourite destinations so far.
After being in the butchery trade working for our family butchers then working in the Forex markets I decided to have a complete change of career, as making a sustained living became increasingly difficult.

I enrolled on Wealthy Affiliate’s free starter course because:

I wanted a lifestyle change
Over 580,000 people were already creating their own business
Wealthy Affiliate have a 98% positive review rate
Training specifically designed for newbies.
Help and support whenever you need it.
A wonderful community
Even the owners, Kyle and Carson are involved within the community daily.
It really doesn’t get any better than this.

I progressed through the 4 steps to create my own home based business in affiliate marketing:
Step 1 - I chose my niche - Plastic Sheds.
Step 2 - I built my website.
Step 4 - I attracted visitors to my website.
Step 4 - I now earn revenue.

I have found the training exceptional. Wealthy Affiliate said that no prior experience for running a home based business online or building a website was required and they were certainly right about this.
I just watched a video then watched, paused and implemented what's being shown into my own website. It was like looking over the shoulder of an expert and following exactly what they do - a very simple process - anyone can do.

The main reason I like this role, it caters for anyone, wherever you are in the world, you’re welcome to come on board and have a go creating your own business - no experience whatsoever is required.
It requires dedication and a bit of hard work but gives everyone a chance to fulfil their dream.

I have now created a very enjoyable lifestyle - Monday mornings are great!

Anyone who joins through me, be assured that I will follow you and you can network with me personally here as this is my hanging out page.

All the best and success with your business,
Simon.

Thank you for adding me to your WA network Simon. I had no idea that there's a sunny side of the UK, just kidding but I have experienced many UK winter days and coming from a city that doesn't really have a winter it is a tad challenging. Best wishes for your continued success here at WA.

It's been amazing the people I have met so far here building businesses. Especially like that so many are from the UK, since my grandfather came for there along with many other relatives I have never met. I am following and learning from seasoned vets as well as those who have been in a short time. Wish you continued success in your endeavors. Message me with your URL, I would love to see it. I am presently developing content, and will do likewise.
Take care,
Bill

Hey Boaz, thanks for your follow too, a pleasure to follow you back.

I was one of those people who previously got lured into the scams promising overnight fortunes until I found Wealthy Affiliate.

Affiliate marketing does take time to accomplish generating consistent revenue but like you say, it's legit, that's the main thing for most of us.

All the best with your business here Boaz,

Hi Simon, a great story and testimony of your journey so far. So far I have been plugging away with this adventure and learning more and more. My family roots are from the UK in the surrounding area of Sheffield. My grandmother was a Loughton (where I get my middle name). My great uncle was Eddie Laughton, he was a British American actor who appeared in over 200 films between 1935 and 1952. He change the spelling of his last name for professional reasons. His sister Phyllis Loughton/Seaton became the first women stage manager of Broadway in New York then later worked for Paramount studios in California as a voice coach. Best of continuing success.

Sounds like you have quite a fascinating family history, thanks for sharing.

Simon.

Hey Chandra, thanks for following - Great to connect.

Two years, wow! Doesn't time fly when you're having fun.

Yeah your right, there's always something new to learn &, new developments being created that helps gain traffic into our websites.
Everything was new to me when I first joined WA, I had previously not run a business online before, alike most members I suppose, so you are learning new tricks every day.

All the best & keep up your great work,
Simon.

Hi Simon,

I looked at your page and must say that it is VERY thorough WA overview, no rocks were left unturned that's for sure. 1 minor thing, in your section called: The 4 steps to create your own successful business section, Step 1 - choose is not capitalized but step 2 to 4 are, easy fix but wanted to bring it up.

Would you be so kind as to look at mine?

Hi Pierre,
Thanks for taking a look at my review.
Personally I think it maybe too long but we'll see how it goes.

I've had a look at yours and it's very well displayed and reads well too. Well done!

I maybe inclined to put the odd picture or screenshot in among to break the text up a bit but I do like your presentation.

Also, maybe an idea to mention a 59% discount if you join in the first 7 days. I forget this and someone mentioned this to me.

Here's another thing for all of us:
Wealthy Affiliate have just re-designed their home page.

They have given 5 examples of targeted niches and the potentials for each.
I am in the middle of altering my post to point anyone interested to the website to have a look.

The niches are:
Learn to Play the Guitar Niche
Baby Stroller Niche
Organic Skin Care Niche
Back Pain Niche
Longer Golf Drive Niche

I think this will do us all a lot of good to send anyone interested to the WA Website for 5 fab examples.
Take a look and see what you think.

Thanks again,
Simon.

I saw that you posted a comment on my site, wealthyindependence. I really appreciate it, thank you.
I also noticed you posted a comment on my post here with the link to your site and something about my comments not showing on my site? I am not sure if I understood, so I went back to read you comment once again and it was not longer there, which is why I am here and want to return the favor on your site and clarify hehe...

Hi Vini,
Sorry Vinni,
Just noticed that the comment was for someone else who hadn't ticked the 'show comments' section.

I have done quite a few comments today, then went back in to post I had commented and got you mixed up with someone else.

It is still there, It's taken me ages to find out who it was meant to be for, anyway I did find them. ha!

Your website's looking great - well done. Lets try and climb this ladder.

Sorry again, it was for someone else.

Simon, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Simon.

Hi Kyle,
Thanks for your support.
I'll do my best this year that's for sure - ha!

I'm just creating my themed pages in the bootcamp.

I have chosen:

Build a website
Affiliate marketing
Home based business

I'm trying to write between 1000 to 2000 words for each post to make it decent content - hope that's right.
Have a look at my progress so far if you like:

Hi Simon, After reading a comment of yours, i decided to follow you. Like your site niche of different size sheds of top quality. I like to garden too and continuously have the problem of running back and forth to the garage for tools I forget. I'm going to have to check into them--did not realize they came in so many different sizes and styles.
Well done...Much success...
Warm Regards,

Hi Kathy,
Thanks for following.
Yes I'm just going through the training slowly and putting the work in.
We were always going through the house to the garage trailing mud into the house. Having all your outdoor stuff outside in a shed does help matters.
Keep coming in as I'm slowly building the site.
Thanks again,
Simon.

Hello Simon, ♫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. It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right under training (click on my picture). 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

Hi Simon!
Congrats on taking the first step towards building a profitable affiliate business!

My name's Kyle (not to be confused with the other Kyle, one of WA's founders) and I wanted to reach out and welcome you to the community, and offer any help you need along the way.

WA has a huge community-centric focus, so the first step you should take is to add a picture and write a few lines about yourself on your profile. Nothing fancy, but it goes a long way in helping you connect with others.

Start Building Your Site TODAY

My biggest suggestion to get going is simply to take action!

So many people 'think' about building an online business, and so few actually take the steps to get there. You've already started the process by joining WA. That's a HUGE step and I know you're probably both nervous and excited to get going.

Once you fill out your profile, you can start setting up your site by following the green "Get Started Here" button.

Lastly, Simon, there's one more thing I want you to remember:

Every single person on this site was once exactly where you are today. We're all living proof of how well this system works. If you ever feel overwhelmed, don't hesitate to ask for help. Break things down into small tasks, but keep going!

The key to success is simply to keep forging ahead. Small steps today will lead to big payouts in a few months!

Kyle
