About SurfsideBob
Joined September 2017
I was an insurance broker for 15 years and sold that business in 2015. During that time I learned the intricacies of website design to grow that business online and reduce the amount of travel required to achieve success. I started Catch a Wave Design in 2008, where I design and host the sites for a number of companies in the Virginia Beach area. I moved to Surfside Beach, SC in 2015 and am working to expand my business into affiliate marketing.

Hey Surfside Bob...!
Nice to meet you, and thanks for posting a comment on my thread. Would love to see your site -- wait -- let me google it. -- Nope -- can't find it -- would you send me the URL...?

You're a website designer? Me, too...! My first career is/was design and communications, marketing, that kind of thing -- then I became a paralegal. Go figure.

Anyway, all the best here, and I look forward to keeping in touch!

Here are a couple of sites I do in the Virginia Beach area.

I'm working to complete my 1st site here at WA and hope to have it published today. I'll write a post when it's live. :-)

Thanks! Last year we decided to go with a one page format for the Strawberry Festival to cut down on contact form requests leading up to the event. Rather than taking time to actually read the site and find the info that was already there, people would just click the contact link to ask their question. Going with that format cut down on unnecessary requests by more than 90%.

I'm building the WA site on another domain I own. If I don't have the new site published today, it will be tomorrow. Peace my friend. :-)

Thank you Bob for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. As a Premium Member you are probably aware of the AWESOME and FREE WA Keyword Tool we have unlimited access to.

This is the keyword research tool I have used exclusively after I became a Premium member 4 years ago and it has helped me many times to find awesome keywords that have led to Google page 1 rankings.

When you have the time, I created very popular WA Training Tutorials, Part 1 and Part 2, on how to use the WA Keyword Tool for keyword research. If you have not seen it and would like to learn how simple it is to use and a little about keywords, click the below link. Again, when you have the time.

Hi Robert, thanks for this link. I'm at the point of content creation for my first sites here at WA, so this will be very useful. Have a great day.

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! :)

Hello Bob,♫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 just wrote my 100th training for WA. I have categorized 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

Hello Bob. Thank you for the follow. I am sure you will do great here at WA. Sounds like you have some great experience. I got my insurance license last year and worked in the call center. Earlier this year, I started working in the field. So different than working in the call center. I wish you lots of success here at WA.

Hi, just thought I would check in and see how things are going with you!
I know the first few days of training can be overwhelming.

There's a lot to learn.

Keep in mind that there's no pressure to be an instant success story. Your # 1 goal should be to go through the Starter Lesson and complete each task, one by one.

Please do let me know if you ever need a hand with anything or are feeling stuck, I'm there to help.

Wish you enjoy the training!

Hi Maun,
Enjoying it so far. Need to complete something else this evening, so tomorrow morning I'll pick back up at the Membership Level video on Level 1 and to through all the remaining that is available to me. I want to move forward quickly and at this point I can't see why NOT to go to Premium level. Will be in touch Thursday. Thanks again!
