About Stradman
Joined May 2016
Violin player of 36 years. Violin teacher of 12 years. Married with 3 incredible children! Love to ski, sail, golf and play tennis. I also love to help my Mom promote her amazing non-profit reading business. Reading Connections Inc. Here are the details: My Mom created her own reading method because my brother couldn't read in 2nd grade. A school teacher herself, she went back to school to learn everything she could about how the brain learns to read. After that she did many years of studying the brain and created her own method. Since then she created a non-profit business using said method. She has helped more than 7,000 children and adults either learn to read or improve their reading, spelling, and comprehension. She volunteered her time for one month in the local Juvenile Detention Center using her method. The results we're so great that the state of Wisconsin gave Reading Connections a grant for 4 years in a row to continue her program in the JDC. Her method is now done through online videos so she can help anyone in the world. Again her website is http://www.rcinc.org
I put up some testimonials: http://www.rcparentblog.com/sample-page/

Hey, thanks for the follow. Noble being, your Mom. My sister had a music studio a few years back and wanted to add more musicians for the kids to learn from. A guy from FSU that played violin was interested, so he and my sister placed an ad in the local papers, but nobody answered. Just on a whim, they changed the ad to read fiddle lessons instead of violin, and the folks lined up for blocks. Location and presentation.

Hello Bruce and welcome to wealthy affiliate.
There's lots of help here within WA for Newbies and not so newbies alike.
You will find that Internet marketing is a steep learning curve though so can I suggest you browse some of the 200+ blogs I have published within WA.
I'm sure you will go away with lots of tips and advice.
Thank you for the follow as well and I will follow you.
Remember, you get stuck, you ask ok.
Enjoy your day.
Robert

Hi Robert,
200 blogs! That's incredible! I read a couple of them so far. Great content! I'm trying to promote my Mom's reading method business she invented. Do you have some ideas on how I can get the word out about it? What would be your best blog to help me with promoting her website?
Thanks,
Bruce

Robert-A Premium
I hesitate to tell you what to do Bruce because you have only been here a month and must still be taking the training via the classrooms or courses.
Keep doing this and you will start to get ideas what is the best road to go down and when you decide on that then get back to me because then you will have questions you need answered.
Right now though its too soon to advise you what you should do because you haven't made up your own mind yet.
Enjoy your day/evening.
Robert

No probs and have a great Firday.
It’s a good idea, but only if you want to, to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.
Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing but.
But to click the ones you do like will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.
Enjoy your day.
Robert

Reply
Harrysastar2 Premium
Hi, and thanks for your reply, much appreciated. I don't have a favorite way of generating traffic, it's a combination of a number of things. Below are three that you need to concentrate on to get started.

Getting good rankings in the search engines by creating good quality and unique content with attention-grabbing headlines, using long-tailed keywords, is the first step.

Paying attention to on-page SEO is also important. Are you using images and alt text, creating internal links to new content, using meta descriptions? These all help in getting you ranked

Using social media, not only to post articles in, but becoming active in by joining discussion groups.

Email marketing; guest blogging; advertising, free or paid; can also help in generating traffic. Hope this helps.

Fantastic! Thank you very much for taking your time to write those guidelines! That will help me a ton! I'm going to go study your website very closely to see how you did those above steps. This is just one of the reasons WA is great! People helping each other! Thanks again!!

Excellent dog blogs! I did some dog training when I was a kid. You are absolutely right about jerking the dog with a choke chain to get it to listen. Not the best way! Operant conditioning is by far a much better way! Anyway, I wish you all the best!

Hello Bruce, ♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made 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. It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right under training (click on my picture). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes
