I'm taking this very serious because i've paid for premium and need and help or suggestions because i'm not very literate to this!

As I was in the beginning... it was very frustrating for me.. and I still have those days.. back up.. play with themes.. sometimes.. go take the dog for a walk and come back to it.. I like to think of it as computer collage.. learning at my own pace.. and doing it part time.. it is a slow process... bottom line... the internet is where the people are and if we plug along... we can make money here..but it is a learning curve... and can be frustrating as hell.. this is a great group... and they will help when then can... often times I walk away and then I will have a revelation.. it is a lot to soak in.. don't fret.. If I can do this... so can you!!

Hello Shelley ... thank you for the follow. I think Kyle's message to you below is pretty cool. Just another example of why this training platform is so different. It's way ahead of the class.

I'm doing Phase 1 of Bootcamp, after completing the Cert Training. I'm expecting Bootcamp to cover most of the same ground, but in more detail. I'm glad I did the Cert Training first.

I'll see you at the end of Bootcamp ... maybe we could share results. I wish you the best on your WA journey.

Shelley, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Shelley.

You can get all of your affiliate links from the WA Affiliate Program page Shelley:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/share

Here you will get everything from your stats, the program details and commission structure, your affiliate links, create your custom messages, get banners, and some other awesome features.

If you are interested in promoting WA, I highly suggest you work through the Affiliate Bootcamp. This is training that I created and put a lot of thought and energy into. It is very interactive and if you work your way through all of the phases I can assure you that you will have a business in place.

Hi Shelley:

I wanted to drop by and say thank you for checking out my most recent tutorial and you asked a great question. I did leave you a long reply to your questions, so let me know if that helps to answer your awesome questions or not.

I love your profile description by the way. I live in Santa Fe, NM and we have so many beautiful art galleries. It really makes you appreciate art when you are in a community where art surrounds it. I like your Box Turtle picture too. Do you own your own turtles too?

Thanks Steph, I actually started a 501 c 3 Box turtle sanctuary. It is one of my new sites that I have been wanting to do for years.. artwork and all... still very much in the works.. lots to learn, but this is the place! I love WA!
Reply
stephhill Premium
Hi Shelley:

This is definitely the place how to create a website for your 501(c)3 sanctuary for Box Turtles. Good luck. :) Also there are plugins that specifically gear towards collecting online donations since you are a nonprofit 501(c)3. Check out the WP plugin Give. They have an easy way to enter a donation request to your website.

SWEET ! thanks for that...had no Idea.. really want to have created a "Shell ID App" for box turtles and have been trying to figure out how to fund it.. will check it out! Thanks

You are very welcome. PayPal is another option, but PayPal will often times want to collect a small fee.

Let me know how everything works out. Your Shell ID App sounds really interesting.

That is fantastic! I am very happy to meet you, too! I live in Florida, just north of Tampa in Wesley Chapel. I actually have 3 dogs ~ a Maltese/Terrier mix that we rescued 8 years ago, a Powder Puff Chinese Crested and my little Papillon. Skylar, my little pap, is a fast little girl!! She goes to a puppy/novice class twice a week, and is now doing One Mind Dog summer training, one day a week ;-) She will be eligible to compete AKC in November.....very excited!! I want to learn all that I can about handling, so if can suggest any sites/videos, etc., that would be great! I look forward to chatting more with you :-)

Hello Shelley, Welcome! Nice to meet you, 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 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.

Good Day Shelley, thank you for following me. Nice to meet you ...

Welcome to WA ... :0)

This is the place to make dreams happen ....

I had a dream that I could realize what ever I wanted if I work
hard at it ... nothing comes easy in life and if it does it is
probably a scam ...

One really has to be careful out there, and let me tell you that
I have had my fair share of scams ... more than I would like to say ...

This is the best community to find the information to get your
online ambitions in the right order ...

Best community online to help you grow in your information highway
quest and let me tell you I have searched, I have been online since
2003 put my first website with text pad and html ...

I have had some success but not as much as I would have liked,
been working for the man to long.

People here are real deal, they will help when you ask the questions ....

In this community if you want to learn you will earn ...

I am really happy to have found this community to help me grow ...

The only thing that can be said is never give up ... you have the
dream it is yours to take ... no one else will do it for you ...

"Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed
by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did.
Cast off the bowlines, set sail from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.

A lot of people out there thought it was a Mark Twain quote ...
and so did I until I found out the truth not long ago from a fellow WA
member .... the small things that we learn here ... :0)

Hey Shelley, I wanted to stop by and personally welcome you to WA. Rest assured everything I mentioned about them is true :)

Whether you're here to build a business, a website or just want to learn and make money online, this is the only place that will show you the best ways to do it.

Here are my 2 quick recommendations on getting started out the best possible way:

1. Please complete your account sign setup. This is just a simple 1 minute process that will better help myself and WA know more about you and your goals. I'd like to get to know you better and help you get going.

2. After you've done this, check this page out: (I think Kyle or Carson already recommended this). This is where everyone who joins WA should begin as it will explain everything.

The course is the most important part of WA. It will guide you to success!

And that's it!

Believe me when I say this stuff works. Just follow the instructions and if you have any questions Shelley, feel free to leave them by just posting a reply here. I usually respond within 24 hours and will be more than happy to help you out!

One last thing I want to mention:

Currently you're a Starter member of WA. This is completely free and you can do a lot of things such as build 2 free websites, get access to training and the online chat, among other cool perks!

If you see that WA and it's training is something you'd like to continue, I would highly recommend upgrading to the Premium membership. It's usually $47 per month, but if you sign up within the first 7 days of joining WA...

1. You can get a 59% discount ($19 for the first month).

2. I'll send you my personal guide to Reaching Your Financial Independence in 2015. This guide is based on my EXACT profit generating techniques I've used with WA. If you are serious about online business, you need to have this. :)

3. You get access to my personal support, 24-7. If you need help, you can be sure that you can fire any questions my way. I have been in the Internet marketing world since 2006 and have likely seen it all! In short, if you have ANY questions, you can come to me anytime and I will help you out (if I can't, I promise to find you the answer). You can count on that.

Certainly this is up to you Shelley. For now just check out the recommended things and see how it works out :)

Talk to you soon!

I am anxious to start earning income as we have been hit hard with unemployment.. I recently started a gig with an Social Media Management business (I am an independent contractor) and am very excited about it and see the need in small businesses all over the place, but have a hard time with direct sales.. I am hoping that I can access the people that are looking for a solution to maintain their Social Media presence via your WA site.. any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
tentatively excited and hopeful!

Hi Shelly, while in WA you will find a lot of knowledge on the topic of social media and helping businesses with it, most importantly, you will be given the training to find those groups anywhere in the world. The best thing you can do in WA is communicate with everyone and go over all of the courses.
