About Skizix
Joined July 2017
My name is Chris. I am originally from Detroit but moved to Hawai'i as a small child. I lived there the majority of my life (29 years) until my family and I moved to Washington State, but Hawai'i will always be home.

I enjoy Sports, Homebrewing, Coaching/mentoring, Guns ('Murica) and would very much like to be able to travel and see this great home/planet of ours in person (Bucket list).

If it's God's will, this opportunity will afford me the ability to one day be able to travel and live where I WANT to, while still earning a comfortable living online.

So far this has been the greatest support system of any business opportunity I have ever been a part of and I have been part of MANY (too many to list).

Let's get to Vegas and financial freedom. It's NOT A RACE, but ........ it's a race. See you along the journey.

Hello Chris,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also 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 right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hey Mike, is there a way to make an auto reply for people who follow me? It seems that Kyle, Cameron and a lot of the top 200 have the same "Welcome..." message on numerous peoples profiles. I get that the owners are super busy and the top 200 are as well with all their activity and training but I would think it would be available to some of us others as well. Just checking, thanks.

The only auto-response is a part of the follow-up system for your WA referrals. Many simply copy and paste due to the sheer number of responses involved, Chris.

BTW, Washington State is absolutely beautiful this time year. The rains won't come till October (I live here too).

Skizix Premium
Yes, Mitch it is beautiful this time of year, but is gloomy and wet the rest. Just my experience over the last 10 years. Guess I shouldn't be too upset, I mean living in Hawai'i for 29 years makes a lot of places left wanting, I suppose. No offense.

MCrim Premium
None taken. The day after I arrived here in October 1972, it rained and then rained every day of my 30 day leave. After mustering out (Air Force), I came back. I've been here ever since.

All the best!

Thank you Chris for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. As a Premium Member you are probably aware of the AWESOME and FREE WA Keyword Tool we have unlimited access to.

This is the keyword research tool I have used exclusively after I became a Premium member 3+ years ago and it has helped me many times to find awesome keywords that have led to Google page 1 rankings.

I created very popular WA Training Tutorials, Part 1 and Part 2, on how to use the WA Keyword Tool for keyword research. If you have not seen it and would like to learn how simple it is to use and a little about keywords, click the below link when you have the time.

Just created my first website and I'm tooling around trying to make it look how I want it to. Quick question, as far as photos go, without getting in trouble for copyright infringement, do you have a suggestion to find photographs online to use on my website? Would becoming a free member of shutterstock work?
Reply
Kyle Premium
There are many ways in which you can find and add images to your website. I have outlined this within a video walk-through that I created on images. This is very thorough and will give you a lot of great ideas as to how you can find and incorporate images on your website. Also, do know that if you are an affiliate of Amazon you can use any of the images (product) from their website on your website if you use their specific linking codes, which opens you up to an image bank of MILLIONS of images.

There are also other CC0 sites out there that you can leverage. These are free public domain images to use how you wish.

You could join companies like shutterstock as well as you can buy photos usually for a decent price through those mediums as well. This should get you going!

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! :)

Skizix Premium
I have plenty of ideas. My biggest problem is deciding to go with one of my hobbies or what I think will generate more money. I'm thinking of the "group" (niche) as who spends the most money....Women. What do they spend on....clothes, accessories (purses, shoes) or lingerie which is also high end. I'm debating with myself right now and also leaning towards the all mighty dollar. Kinda leaning towards money and gold but then I'll have to decide how to narrow that niche down. I might just push for gaining affiliates but that's kinda side tracking me from actually learning how to do this creating a website from my niche and learning the business first. Maybe overthinking it.

All niches have a ton of opportunity within them. There are 3.75 BILLION people online and we are all now more connected than ever. This is the audience you are dealing with the Internet and even some of the most obscure niches have millions of people interested in them.

You should read about this here within a blog post I recently created on this exactly topic: YOU make a niche profitable and that is why it is important that you decide on a niche that you are interested in/passionate about. It will make the journey that much more fun and exciting. ;)
