About Skydancer1
Joined December 2016
I'm new to wealthy affiliate Dec 2016, but have had a website before..I'm excited to learn some new skills and use the tools and experience available here on the site

Online is where the market is and it's why I am here. I am certified in Digital Forensics and data recovery however this is what I am interested in for long term financial independence
I previously took a shot at a web based business in 2004 when I was laid off from my job in the Airplane building industry. I did it all , had a personal coach show me how to find a niche and build a retail website. The problem was I had to many questions and no money to put into advertising because of no job. I made it work for a while and ended up learning a great deal, I have kept going on various online opportunities like drop shipping and eBay auctions and various other projects Like pay per click marketing, was the way to go in 2004 unless you are a keyword guru. Now this platform is so nice, all the stuff I
wanted to know about and had to struggle with is here in one package at wealthy affiliate.
I really look forward to having another crack at a successful online business. I need to be able to have a portable income source. This 9 to 5 grind is not easy anymore, actually more like the 5-1:30 grind but hey it's the same. :)
I have a bit of computer back ground as I am a certified software tester and hold an A. A degree in Information technology. It hasn't really helped me much other than to be the guy at work that everyone comes to for computer issues.
I am looking to enhance my knowledge and learn from all of you as well as wealthy affiliate and the incredible amount of information that is available. I wish I had found all this back in 2004 I would be retired by now. :)

Some of my interests are Sports, Hiking, traveling and anything computers.
Yes I play the occasional video game or computer game as well. I can't help it, I may be older, but im still refusing to grow up. LOL

I am also a proud vegan and am looking forward to sharing information on a healthy lifestyle in my first website.

My Goals?

To generate enough income to comfortably support me and my family and replace my daily job i have been at for years.
I want to travel with my wife and see the world and not have to worry about income or how to pay for it.
To Purchase a Home and live in Hawaii and retire.

It will be my pleasure to meet and interact with you and learn and in time help others along this journey

Take care and I hopefully we can cross paths and help each other out.

My WA site is up and running.. I have a bit of work to do still but feel free to check it out and stay a bit and maybe leave a comment

I'm looking for people to work with. It's kind of hard to know where to start. I thought I would reach out and ask if you are accepting guest posts on your site? I can write quality content on any topic. I own a general website that I would like to link back to. I am hoping by gaining links that my site will get more traffic.

If you were willing to let me post on your site I would share the post on Facebook (few thousand followers) and I will promote the post with boosting on Facebook, to get traffic to your site.

If you're interested, I could come up with a topic or you can just tell me what topic you want to be written. Please let me know if you are interested and share the site you would allow me to write content for.

Thank you for your time

Skydancer1 thanks for the follow! I am adding you to my network. It's good to read about what others are doing and how WA is steering them towards their goals.

I think for the most part we all want a better life...

And yes I agree with you ... at some point in our lives, the 9 to 5 daily grind has to go...

I noticed you have 45 blogs that are showing on your profile...is that just here on your profile with WA or is that part of your website that is available to others outside of WA?

I am still working on setting up my website and trying to get ideas for my Website blog and considering doing a blog on my profile to interact with the exceptional WA community.

Alright, enjoy your weekend!
Skydancer1 Premium

Thanks for adding me to yours as well. yes those blogs are all within Wealthy Affiliate using the create a blog feature in your profile.

The Blogs here at WA do show up in Google so make sure you use a keyword in your blog posts title it can gain you referrals and many other benefits by getting the message out that you want to share.

My web site is listed in the "follow me" section at the bottom right sidebar of my profile. Feel free to stop by and leave a comment. LOL :) I will return the favor when you set up your site..

If you need assistance let me know I will do my best to assist


1Summer Premium
Todd thank you...I wasn't aware of that...

As far as this thread, is this a private thread just for those of us in WA Premium? (I think I may know the answer, but just double checking). Or is this accessible on the internet to those outside of WA?

Thanks for your anticipated response.
Skydancer1 Premium
This thread can be access from outside WA.

It is a good way to bring interested people in who may be looking to start a business online by having a good profile setup. I am a little rusty on what free starters have access to but I think anyone can see your profile..

So be careful how you answer questions in your profile, your MOM may be watching. LOL :)

To send a Private message you can do that in the profile of the person you are messaging, right next to the follow button.

Those are private in case you need a longer conversation

hope that helps

Hi Todd,

Thank you for accepting my invitation to network under WA and within its community.

To grow, I need more and more timely support as much as I could have from you and all other WA members despite knowing that less than 10% of its participants may excel, reflecting how well and hard they work and how smart they are.

So, patience and persistence + hard work are the keys to succeed in any business with no exception for affiliate programs.

Here I want to let you know I appreciate your continual generosity in offering support and help. Likewise, let me know if anything I can do for you and I will oblige to.

All the best to your success,

Hello Todd, thank you for getting in touch, I'm sure you will hear a lot from me as I gain confidence on this site and find my way around, initially if I don't get back to you, please forgive me it's probably because I've forgotten how rather than not wanting to chat :)
Skydancer1 Premium
No problem I understand. You can find me. under the light blue Icon at the top that has the three people in it, that is your followers list. I am following you so you just need to click on my picture and leave a message on my profile or as a private message and I will respond.

No worries about not getting back to me. I am always here to help

Take care
heikob Premium
Thanks for the follow as i will do the same. I like your approach to become independent. Love Hawaii as i used to live there more than a decade ago. Once you get your online business to a comfortable independent income, the high cost of living in Hawaii is becoming a lesser issue.

Hi Todd
thanks for replying to my questions so fast on livechat :-) It's interesting to see you plan to set up a healthy lifestyle blog in the future - I have a recipe blog for vegetarians/vegans but I haven't done much with it (I had another one years ago that was popular but I didn't have time to keep updating it) - so my plan is to turn that into my affiliate blog somehow :-)
Skydancer1 Premium
Good plan.

Healthy lifestyle info is huge online market wise and with the bonus that it is information we should share with the world in order for others to be healthy.

I do plan on eventually going down that road yes. I have a few other niches up my sleeve first though.

Thanks for connecting and I am available to help anytime.

Rhiney Premium
Hey now Todd,
I hope that's your name or would like me to address u by Skydancer? Thanks for the info. U are my up line if I may tap into your wealth of knowledge that would be helpful.

Blessed and highly favored
Your WA Rome
Skydancer1 Premium
Thanks Rome,

You can all me either. My name is Todd But I go by either. I use Skydancer in honor of my Late Mother.

I am willing to help in any way I can.
I wish you the best and a great ride along the way


Rhiney Premium
Hey now Todd,
My condolences on the loss of your mother.
As u know we in the community will be pushing u up in cheers as well as holding on to u as u lead. Thanks for being a leader in the WA community. See u at the top Skydancer.
If i may ask, how did your mom get that nickname?

Blessed and highly favored
Your WA Rome
Skydancer1 Premium
Thanks, Much appreciated. She was an artist and a dreamer and probably the worlds foremost authority on wild food gathering and what herbs can do what and how use what nature gives you as a food source or supplement

So she started calling herself that and it stuck. Thats why I use the _1 as the "next generation" however I am not gifted with her skills I use the name as a way to honor her legacy within the family.

I am not quite a leader within the community just yet But I try and help when I can.

Thank you

Have a Great Day
KelseyLim Premium
Hi Todd, Thank you so much for the follow, much appreciated.  I reckon this is the best place where we can learn and increase your exposure on IM.  The training and tutorials are top notches and I believe the WA community is the place you want to be with on your journey to build a passive income.

Dear Todd, thanks for sharing and for accepting my invite, much appreciated. Seems you're doing very well, so keep on track and let's stay in touch.

Balsam Premium

Thanks for following me! I am following you back!

I visited your website and wanted to see if you put your name under ABOUT ME! Unfortunately, there is no about me and under contract us you haven't mentioned your name, too.

Wishing you all success you dream of!
Skydancer1 Premium
Thanks for checking out my website. Feel free to comment on it any time. LOL

My about me page has my name in it. "Todd" says "About Todd" on main menu.


I dont make it a habit of giving out last names online. Good point about the contact us page not mentioning my name it is simply my email address. I will correct that.
thanks for the tip

ToLiNoLi Premium
We have to learn all we can and practice here, the community is awesome and wants us to succeed and will help us where we fail to learn and improve and reach our destinations of success so we can educate the next generation here to help them too. So go for it, let's do it, anyone can do it, never give up! :D

Todd, you are in the right place to get a proper start, and with your background, you can scale up fairly quickly I think, and get started on fulfilling some of the goals you lay out above...Great to meet you and thanks for the follow! What part of the world do you hail from? Cheers! Dave : )

P.S. Please check out my websites on my profile page to get an idea of what the Wealthy Affiliate training can do for you. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.
Lwarrick Premium
Hey there! I am excited to inform you how awesome you are. Things happen for a reason and I stumbled upon your website by chance.

Intially, I wanted to see how you framed you content, considering you mention in and comment that you have lots of traffic. So naturally, I was happy to see what you had to offer.

I checked out just about every page and found lots of great info. But mostly your content language was fantastic in my opinion.

So I decided to leave you a comment, and I figured... why not, your news letters would be just as informative. So I signed up for you subscription.

Now I should also tell you that I have been so stuck on the content aspect of my website. I have the information, passion, and some writing skills... but my posts just seemed to be too short and lacking in many ways.

I have been searching the web for any free writing courses related to web content and conversation writing to better connect with my ideal audience. I've picked up some good things here and there, but nothing to give me secure formula that gave me confidence.

This has been going on for about 2 weeks.....

So, back to your news letter and the mystery "free gift" I was recieving....

(I was excited to see what I got!!, considering most sites tell u what u get for incentive purposes, but I love surprises. **I was never the kid who searched for her Xmas gifts before the big day** )

So feeling extra special opening my present.... you gave me the one thing I asked for this year!! (And you had no idea I was requesting it)

.... An amazing guideline to creating bad ass content! I'm am being completely honest when I say that it was the most useful content strategy that may have actually saved me from defeat.

It has given me the mental tools and web tools I needed to get my content where it needs to be.

I am still thinking about how I landed on your site, something just told me that it was important to visit right now.

I want to thank you for the work you do and the information you provide. You can rest assured that you have helped someone today. Like those one people say.. " give a man a fish, he will eat once.... teach a man how to fish, an he will always have food." Or something like that.
Skydancer1 Premium
WOW I am flattered.
Yes I am getting some traffic, but nothing close to what I want to see. and My issue is very few conversions at this point, so this weeks webinar with Jay should be enlightening.

I am very Happy you like my site and even happier you got the E-book. I am certainly no expert on writing good content, I just do like they tell us in the training. write like you are talking to someone in person and just be your self. There is NO perfect content in my opinion because whoever writes it will never be totally satisfied. I know I look at my stuff and I keep messing with it and re reading. It is nice to hear that someone enjoys my posts.

maybe we can help each other out a bit. when you read something you like ,send it out on social media and I will do the same for you when you get up and running. we both win that way.

jay posted something this morning that may help you with content follow is SEO metrics method and your stuff will start to climb up the ranks.

also Loes Checklist is fantastic. And just a little secret? I am still getting going with the newsletters I am working on those a bit as I am not used to sending them out. For starters it will be mainly copies of my posts and or pages but I will grow it into more free stuff and other information not available on the site. So I guess I say don't expect to much just yet on newsletters as they are still a work in progress.

I am very happy you like my site as it gives me some validation that I am doing things right. I too am still learning. this site has only been online since 4/1.

I would be more than happy to help you in anyway I can, if I dont have the answer we can search for it in the portal or in chat.

Thank you for your kind words.

Keep in touch

Loes Premium
Hello Todd,♫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

Todd, 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 Todd.
Skydancer1 Premium
Thank you for the personal message. I appreciate it..
I am working through the bootcamp as you mentioned.
I have had a bit of confusion on how specifically i promote WA
In the bootcamp it mentions the target audiences and the 3 topics and 10 posts for each. My guess is it's not a good idea to promote WA through my Nice site, because that may distract from the message I am going for. So I set up a domain webincome4me.com
to specifically market WA. I have set up most of the pages and they have content. still refining them as I am just getting it going.
I guess my question is. what am I using for posts? to keep this updated and ranked. the 10 topics im guessing and just keep adding to that?
I love WA, and I will be successful with it. Just thought I would ask if im on the right path and have an understanding of what I should do.

thanks for your time

take care
Kyle Premium
When I go to do research on a given niche to come up with concepts for keywords (and ultimately content), I ask a few questions of my niche.

**What are some products/services that people are purchasing in your niche?
**What are some questions they are asking?
**What are some problems they are having?
**What are some "how to's" that are useful?
**What are some trending topics in your niche?

Do some research, in could be as simple as a Google search to uncover a lot of these items. I personally start off my keyword research using this technique: This will open your doors to essentially unlimited ideas and concepts, from there you can plug in these keywords into a keyword tool like the one here at WA or Jaaxy.com. Hope this helps you out here Todd!
Skydancer1 Premium
Very helpful thanks for the guidance..

Take care..
Kyle Premium
No problem Todd! :) I am always here to answer any questions and give you a hand as you move forward with your progress.
Skydancer1 Premium
Im trying to update my custom referal link I already created it and it works. but I need to change some text inside it...the edit button doesn't do anything. can I just delete it and re do it? or can the edit button be fixed? thanks
Skydancer1 Premium
never mind I found the support link. no need to bother you with this
Kyle Premium
OK, thanks Todd.
