I'm new to wealthy affiliate,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

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.

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!

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.

https://webincome4me.com/about-me

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

Cheers

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.

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

Todd

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.

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

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!

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! :)
