When it comes to your online business, have you ever felt stuck? Like your wheels are spinning. Fast. But you are not going anywhere? Or even worse, like you have just become bogged down? I feel like that is what has happened with my websites. As you may be aware, I have several other business and farm activities that consume my time. My websites will compliment those activities and bring in more sales.I have made money with affiliate marketing in the past, so I know that it is po

I just took advantage of this year's Wealthy Affiliate Black Friday Special. What a relief! This is my third year as a WA member. I can not imagine NOT being a WA member. WA has taught me how to make money online. Yes, I have made some money even though I have only been working on my affiliate marketing business part-time.My online affiliate marketing business is part of my long term business strategy. My real estate, farm and shop activities are my currently my primary focus. Gr
Are you focusing on things you can control? On Wednesday night, I watched the movie "In Pursuit of Happyness" for the second time.The first time in my life I watched it , I must have been at a point in life where I was comfortable. I recalled the movie as a somewhat motivational, feel good movie about someone that beat the odds and succeeded despite a lot of hardships. My life has changed a lot since the movie first came out. Without going into the gory details, let us just say that I a
Have you ever been super excited about how much progress you were making on your website? Then life happens and everything comes to a screeching halt. What do you do? How do you respond? Well, last month (August), I had my most productive month this year. I was on a roll. I was posting an article almost every day. I started making YouTube videos. I started pinning on Pintrest. I even did what I most dreaded - I set up a Facebook business page. Even better, I was able to make t

This morning I watched Engae Ponaai - Zero on YouTube. This video is very romantic music video that is not sung in English. I had stumbled across the video while doing a Google search for the word "engage" Although I didn't understand a single word, Engae's video captivated my attention. So much so that I saved it to my play list. Then I researched the video some more so that I could try to figure out what the song was about. It also turns out that this video's ability to engage my att
Here at WA, we frequently hear about people that get their posts or pages removed or banned from Facebook, Pintrest or other forms of social media. More often than not, the WA member does not feel like they spammed anyone. Jetrbby (Kaju) is a recent example. This morning, before I read Jetrbby's latest bad experience with Facebook, I had spent some time on someone else's business page. It is a Facebook business page that I have visited multiple times. Since I am in the process of launc
I am sorry. I just read another post from someone that is complaining they have not made any money yet. I have spent the majority of my career as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). Among other things, a CPA gives financial advice to businesses and some CPA's help with the taxes. So, this question frustrates me when it comes from people that have been here less than a year. You may not want to hear this but it is true: Unless you spend thousands on advertising or you are one of the
Spammers are people too. Are you at risk of becoming one? After being at Wealthy Affiliate for over two years, I have watched a few too many people fall for shiny objects in hopes of making money faster. Even a few "respected" members have. So, just because someone is a Wealthy Affiliate member; that does not mean they immune from becoming a spammer. Maybe I"m in a weird mood today but this morning I found myself feeling sorry for a spammer. After all, this spammer is just like m
I have had a nagging question that won't' go away. Should WA's spam rules be changed to allow self promotion on their own WA blog? The more I think about it, the more I think it would better serve the community if people could provide links to their own websites on their WA blog. Since around 2007, I have belonged to a real estate blogging community that is made up of people mainly from the United States and Canada. People are allowed to promote their own business on their personal blo
As an Amazon Associate, I was reminded once again about how important it is to make sure that your income stream, your livelihood, is not tied to one company. Or one type of product. Today, we received an update from Amazon. They were notifying us that the commission rates are being reduced effective May 1, 2019, for a couple of categories. These reductions applied to categories that have been paying between 7%, for luggage and shoes for instance to 10% for the apparel. This is an excer
