About Sophied73
Joined February 2015
Since I started at Wealthy Affiliate things have changed massively - not sure how much time I have to spend on my website as my 4 year old boy Cade has just been diagnosed in July this year with leukaemia. I am now in Brisbane with him while he has 2 months of chemotherapy then maybe we can go home to Mackay as my daughter is there being looked after by her grandparents. We've just been told that we have to spend Christmas by the hospital too which is sad but necessary for his treatment. Life is a constant challenge but the strength in my boy is teaching me that you never give up :)

_____________________________________________________________________

I'm an English girl living in tropical North Australia - met my Aussie husband while on a work visa in Oz 1998! I have 2 beautiful kids an 11 yr old daughter and 4 yr old son who both keep me on my toes.

I work from home as a freelance web designer as well as being Mum so life is busy.

We have 3 dogs, 2 cats and 3 horses - I'm breaking in a 2 year old pony this year which is lots of fun - just love animals.

I came upon Wealthy Affiliate purely by chance did a bit of research and decided to give it a go.

Hi Sophie, just stopping by to say hello. I just upgraded to Premium today. I live in Victoria near the beach on the Mornington Peninsula and we have 3 dogs and 2 cats too - all rescues and all gorgeous!

I hope things are going well for you and I wish you every success.

Great job on taking that next big step going Premium. I know you are going to love it because I went Premium back in December after only 2 days with WA and I'm still here today. Don't give up and your hard work will pay off. If you ever need a hand don't hesitate to ask. Take care and good luck.

Thanks Alan, and wishing you every success too. You sounded like an interesting person with your background in sales and online business. I have a background in web design but am learning some great stuff here about affiliate marketing (having known nothing about it before February!) and some new tricks in SEO. Really enjoying it so far!

Thanks for the compliment Sophie

How are you finding working from home as a freelance web designer?

Do you normally work with Wordpress?
Reply
Sophied73 Premium
I work freelance but most of the week from home for an internet company in town as one of my kids is 3 so this fits in with my life at the moment. I don't have to find the jobs but I get a few of my own customers for some extra cash. I'm more of a joomla expert and know a little about wordpress! not much though but wordpress is perfect for blogging. Most companies don't want to blog so I like joomla for the flexibility in design and what I can do with it.
Reply
Alan Hocking Premium
Great stuff Sophie

I think you will be pleasantly surprised to find out just how flexible Wordpress is.

It has developed far beyond just a blogging platform and now powers over 25% of the websites on the Internet. ;)
Reply
Sophied73 Premium
I always knew it was pretty powerful I just learnt Joomla first and it takes a while to learn so never really had the time to understand wordpress as well! I love learning so looking forward to getting good at wordpress too - you can never have enough knowledge! Interestingly, I am starting to deal with more clients who already have a wordpress site set up and need it upgrading and tweaking!
Reply
Alan Hocking Premium
Well you're certainly in the right place to learn all about WordPress and everything else you need to know about the online marketing world!

Some people can fly through these courses and are able to commit alot of time to it. It does take time but you have to do it at your own pace. I've definitely gained momentum and have committed more time to posting in last few months. Once you get more content it gets really satisfying!
Reply

Well, I'm not flying, barely stumbling, but it's all getting a bit more comfortable. I hear ya, and I am definitely going at my own pace. I was happy to get indexed in Google, and to finally get my layout to something closer to what I had in mind. Every post, for me, has been a victory.
Reply
Sophied73 Premium
Being indexed and ranked even if it's way down the pages in Google is always a boost to your confidence! Sounds like you're doing fine! From what I gather there will be ups and downs with getting going in affiliate marketing but if you stick at it and follow the courses well it will work for you.

Reply
Sophied73 Premium
Hi Lina, thanks for leaving a comment. I'll return the favour on your site. Is there any post you particularly need a comment on? If so leave me the link here. For the watermark I just added it in Preview which comes with all Apple Macs. You can also do it in photoshop. If you have a Windows machine and you don't have photoshop there are a ton of free software online for doing this. Just google something like 'watermark photos on a windows pc' I can't recommend one as I use Macs!

Thank you for following me in ‘Wealthy Affiliate’ Sophie
This is one of the very best places I have personally been in years and am sure it is for you too!
Having risen to 256 in the rankings in my fist month, I can assure you that this was achieved solely by following Kyle’s teachings exactly to the word. I would advise anyone who is new to ‘WA’ to just follow what Kyle teaches in his training’s and not try to do it their own way. “Re-inventing the wheel“, I believe it’s called 
I wish you every success in all you are striving for in WA, good luck,
Roger
Reply
Sophied73 Premium
Hi Roger, I'm still working through the courses - on Course 5 now. Time to work through all this is definitely a factor - good advice - can't wait to get to the end of the courses and have a look at Affiliate Bootcamp too. Have only just started getting into a rhythm with writing posts in last month or so - still not getting ranked in google even though I'm using the low hanging fruit keywords which makes me wonder if I'm not quite getting it but will keep at it. Any advice?
Reply
rog37 Premium
I would love to be able to give you advice Sophie, but I am very new here myself. You are already doing extremely well buy getting to course 5 already and the only advice I might give is just stick to exactly what Kyle advises us.

Personally, when I have gone through all the courses, I will then go through them again because I might... just might have missed a vital piece which could do me a lot of good?

Sincere best wishes in all you are striving for Sophie,

Roger
Reply
Sophied73 Premium
It's taken me a while to get to Course 5!! but I think I'll go through them again just to make sure too! It's always a bit of a learning curve learning a new system but I'm determined to make it work! Sophie

I am currently just about to go to Lesson 9 on Level 4 of the Certification Course Sophie.

Why do you ask I wonder? It really does not matter where anyone is as long as we all do the same. I.e. Go through each step as advised by Kyle one step at a time in the time we have available to us.

I am retired, so have a lot of time available to me.

Keep up the good work going at your own pace,

And...thanks for the insight and sharing with me! "-)

Hi Linda, not sure if this plugin will slow site down as I only just put it on but isn't affecting how the page loads so far. It may well do, so will monitor it and let you know but it seemed the best choice for the email subscriber plugin! I have a few more than the recommended 5 plugins so may have to get rid of a couple!

Hello Sophie!

No better place than here to learn the most effective way to tap into internet marketing! And if you already have some web experience that can help things along. While that is not my experience, didn't know a thing about any of this, I have seen many others comment how they do each lesson because they find that they always learn something new. Now that is powerful!

So, with all that you are juggling, your kids, your family and husband and furry friends and all, I am confident that you are going to accomplish your goals. Its just a matter of time!

I'm looking for what you will creatively bubble to the surface.

Linda

Sophied73 thanks for the follow. Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. You have just found the right place to learn all there is to know about this online marketing community and how to build a highly successful business.
Just remember, this is a marathon race, not a short sprint.
So just have in mind that this online business success is not only going to take a lot of hard work from you but also dedication and plenty of time as you cannot become successful in a day or two.
Don't be in a hurry for success. Just do things right the first time around and success will meet you the harder you work.

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)
(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there. Where else can you access the CEO of the company for help?
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well Sophie and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)

I hope things are going well Sophie! I want to remind you of one thing, your hard work and dedication IS going to pay off. Keep working through the training, communicating within the community, and of course, ask for help when you need it.

Just heading out for a bit here, but do leave me a message if you need a hand with anything. You should have Premium communication back for an additional 7 days now, so hit me up when you get a chance Sophie!

Thanks for giving another 7 days to ask questions as I missed the first 7 days I had. I'm now thinking too much about my niche. I have quite a few passions and I want to do them all. I have listened to the tutorials and understand it is much more beneficial to concentrate on one and get really good at it. I keep coming back to photography as I love it. Is doing a site on beginner dslr photography too broad? I use Google Keyword Planner to search on keyword searches and there's a few that are high eg photography for beginners or dslr camera for beginners. I want to base the site on posts about learning to use a dslr camera as a beginner - am I overthinking this? I messed up a bit on my first niche thought and set up a wordpress on sony lenses but now thinking this is too narrow.

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. I do like your Dslr idea, I think that can definitely work for you here Sophie! :)

I can totally appreciate you wanting to spend all the time with your children, I have a little one (1.5 year old daughter) and I feel so fortunate to be able to work at home.

I can tell you that it is possible and the Internet presents this opportunity Sophie. You can literally take any passion/interest that you may have and turn it into a full time business and we are going to teach you how to do this here at WA. It will require some work and dedication, but it is well worth it.

You have a community of support behind you, myself included. If you ever need anything or just want to say hi, simply reply to this. Would love to hear from you. :)

PS. I hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead!
