About Solda50
Joined September 2012
I am a retired barber looking for a good retirement job. Is that an oxymoron? Seriously, I want to remain active and do something with other people and make some extra cash. After reading up on a multitude of internet occupations and how overwhelmingly most of them are scams it was refreshing to finally find Wealthy Affiliate. I checked into some of the other legitimate sites, Keyword Academy, etc. But soon found out that WA was the best by what it offered its students. I will of course be interested in chatting and learning from people like me. And when I have progressed farther into this system maybe I'll be of help also.

Hi Pete, I was watching one of Jay's videos https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/design-in-wordpress-being-graphic-with-your-ux/play and noticed that you were asking for a critique. I went and looked at the site and think that it looks pretty good and is a good start. If I were a traveler looking for information on Hawaii and the other islands I would want to know much more about what there is to do there. And would expect more pictures of the beautiful places I might want to go. Maybe an itinerary--if you go to the island of Hawaii you can do this, and this, and this, etc.
All the best to you,
Victoria

Thanks Victoria. I was trying to avoid over doing it with images but seeing it from the users point of view shows I was probably wrong. I though I was giving out an itinerary, but maybe that was to subtle. i see I can improve my salesmanship.
Thanks for checking out my site. These tips you gave me are what WA's all about.

You'll want to leave that message on his wall & sent him a message as well. He should give you back a reply. He's probably off the chat.

Hey solda, I'll try and help you personally with this issue. I've read about the affiliate nexus tax laws and I've also heard about that law going on in Illinois. Sounds like that issue of when there was some inside deal made about the next governor not too long ago. :/ But anyway... I recommend going to www.ivetriedthat.com since he gives a lot of good information about jobs. He has a page on there at http://www.ivetriedthat.com/2008/09/04/free-directory-of-online-money-making-opportunities/ that gives a bunch of information about that. I have a feeling that law only applies to major places like Amazon.com & not smaller places you can affiliate for.

Hi Carson. This seems the only way I can contact you or Kyle. I've been a member now for a few weeks and have just found out that I may be wasting my time and money. Being a resident of the state of Illinois I cannot at this time work as an Affiliate marketer. The Affiliate Nexus Tax Bill the state passed in 2011 discourages sites like Amazon to take on affiliates. I would assume that when I joined WA you saw I was in Illinois. Why wasn't I told this from the beginning? Unless you have some way of getting around this I think I should receive a full refund of my membership fee, $359.00. Please respond.
