About Tans
Joined September 2009
This is my second shot at creating an internet business and my retirement fund! I have been flat out for the last two years with the daily grind working to repair all of the leaking buildings that New Zealand has in Schools. As much as it is a really interesting job that gives something back to the universe, I have had enough of bureaucracy and not having the time to do the things I really enjoy.

I love my home and want to spend more time here with like minded people and the income to suit my needs. The only way I can see to do that is to develop a successful online business. Here we go!

Hi Tania, I am very glad that our paths have crossed. I have some thoughts about your websites but I want to take a little time to give you the proper advice. I will get back to you in a bit of time (not really sure how long it will take) and see if I can come up with something.

Hi, Tans. Thank you for following me back. Just like you, I'm here to pursue a different path. I love my day job but there is a small voice inside me telling me to pursue my passion, the reason why I'm here at WA. To be able to pursue my passion and at the same time helping other people to do the same. WA is a community of positive, supportive and like-minded individuals whose purpose in life is not just to achieve success in the field of online business but also to be of valuable help with other members. Hoping to share my inspirational knowledge in this community. Wish you every success in your online business endeavours!

Hi Tans, thank you for your following and wish you success in WA. I know a little about leaking roofs, the first time I arrived in Auckland, about 4 am from Fiji, a friend collected me from the airport and took me to see his brand new house - it had a flat roof and as he started to show me around, the heavens openned up and there was water pouring in all over the place - we eventually laughed about it, some time later.

Hi Tans, I agree that this business is not easy to achieve with a relative amount of success. I am pretty famililar with affiliate marketing the last few years, due to being scamed a couple of times and thousands of dollars in the toilet. But I've learned that experience is never a waste. I'm a newbie with WA and putting in a lot of hours every day to learn the ropes. You can't go wrong with the support of the owners and the nice people here.

Sorry it's taken me so long to reply. I finally got the router and now the rotten kids are using the computer as well as the x-box. When I finally get computer time I discovered they downloaded some kind of monster virus and that's why it's taken me so long to reply. Maybe I should take this as an omen for me not to pursue WA ......

Now it's my turn to apologize for not replying back. It seems everytime I try to log on WA some emergency pops up. At this rate I'll finish the 8 week program in 8 years. I guess as long as I finish that's the main thing. I'm going to try this again and I hope everything is going ok with you.

No way. Don't do that. This site may actually save your sanity and give you a reason to kick the kids off for 'Mum's' time! I completely get where you are coming from though.

Hi, on the home page of WA there is a link to WA Express "get started now" - this is where you can develop your website. Or failing that if you want to design your own you can go to the tools tab and load site rubix. Before you do either, you will need to have a registered domain name. You can get one of these from GoDaddy.com. Hope this helps.

Well, if that's the case you will need to research a niche that you are interested in first so that you can write about it for a blog (which you can set up through WA once you have a domain name - go to GoDaddy.com). There is a very good tool at WA for niche research. Click the tools tab and then "Niche Q" - it will give you some ideas about which niches are profitable etc.

I'm in a lesson where one of my tasks is to sign-up for three affiliate networks. I have signed up for Clickbanks, and they want me to choose two more. I have tried to sign up for LinkShare but I do not have a website. Should I make a websites first, and then build my website? Or just find networks that don,t need a web site for me to register?
Reply
Budfox78 Premium
This helped me a bit. I am suppose to sign-up for at least two affiliate network sites to research niches, but I need a website to sign-up. How do I build a site if I don't have a niche. This is where my problem is. I appreciate the help.
Reply

Well, I'd probably get the website. It's very simple through site rubix if you want just a website or you could set up a wordpress blog with the new system here at WA. It's very simple to get the site up and running that way. Let me know if that answers your question?

Thanks for the welcome. I'm here at WA bec in the near future my job as a mailman may become non-existant. Hopefully, with what I learn here, I will be able to continue to provide for my family. I've known about WA for about 3 years, but was hesistant to take the plunge, mainly bec I got sidetracked with a bunch of scams. When I heard the price was increasing, I figured what the heck, I might as well try this one too. Already after Day 1 I can tell this may be what I have been searching for.

Sorry it took me a couple of days to write - I just have to get a wireless router so that I can get computer time bec my kids hog it with their x-box live. How long did it take you to complete the 8 week action plan bec I have to admit when I do get computer time I get sidetracked bec there is so much info on the net. Even in WA you get sidetracked bec I was reading up on PotPieGirl and got transferred to her website and started printing out eveything I could . Like you said, I think I'm in the right place now. Hopefully I found it before I have to get a second job at nights.

It is really easy to get distracted but when I found I was doing that, I would stay on the training that I was doing and write down the links outside of the training that I would need to do next. Try starting the day with a "to do" list and don't deviate. There's heaps of time to check out all the training resources. The action plan took me the 8 weeks. How are you doing with it now?

I understand the kids hogging internet time. I get that as well! You gotta laugh.

Try starting the day with a "to do" list and don't deviate. There's heaps of time to check out all the training resources. The action plan took me the 8 weeks. How are you doing with it now?

I understand the kids hogging internet time. I get that as well! You gotta laugh.

NZ is such a beautiful country. I have been to south island once, I miss having a cuppa at the peaceful Queenstown cafe and the browsing books at that quite Arrow Town post office.

Hi! Thanks for your message.Sorry its taken me a while to get back to you - I'm in the middle of moving countries with my family so things are a bit frantic. How are things with you? Is your business developing as you want it to?
Reply
Tans Premium
It looks like our goals are identical! I am looking forward to the day that I can tell a boss that they are fired and I no longer require their services! I'm definitely enjoying the journey but have been experiencing some technical problems with my blog that I have posted to for the last 12 months. It has completely disappeared into the ethos. But, I'm looking at it as a positive. There were things I didn't like about it so I will set about re-engineering it. How's things with you? Generating traffic from your article?

That's an excellent return rate. Awesome. Well done. You must have very good writing skills.

Hi there,
I'm excited to be here at WA, but am a but overwhelmed at the moment. Maybe I'm trying to do too much all at once, but I'm so eager to get going.
Reply
Tans Premium
There's nothing wrong with being eager and there are so many learning resources on this site, it's easy to get confused. I started writing up a list of tutorials I wanted to get through and if there were any other tutorials I needed to do that were related to those tutorials, I'd write them down to do the next day. Hope that helps?

I have been reading through the different blogs. Australia seems like a long ways a way. I like the idea of having a business that doesnt depend on just my local economy. I lost all of my security blankets about 10 years ago. It wasnt until about 3 years ago that I have been living for the mailbox and just beating shut off notices. That is why I decided to do something different. I have a printer repair business. I developed a website about 6 months ago and I still am not getting the local traffic to it. I would like to resolve that problem first so I can keep a roof over my head while I learn the IM business. Great to meet you.
Reply
Tans Premium
You too! This site will certainly help you improve your website performance. I understand where you're coming from on the whole bill paying thing. The recession has been scary for a lot of people and so many people are in the same boat on this site alone. IM is a great way to avoid the repercussions of a global crisis. People will always buy online. Keep in touch. Great to chat with you.

Hi Tan
Thanks for you words of encouragement and offer to help. I'm enjoying the training. Have scheduled 2 hours per day - 10:00 - 12:00 each morning - five days per week. I realize that I need to be disciplined to get it done.
Love the niche-hunting article. Am wading through it making notes and trying the examples it contains. Probably won't wait till Monday to continue. It's so interesting.
I'm waiting for my next training lesson to be released.
Cheers David

OOh I love Oz. Spent a year there once. Considered moving there too and both my wife and I are still secretly craving the idea. I've gone through similar things as you re changing from the big 'rat-race' job with loads of responsibility to working from home. Self discipline is the key now! Anyway good luck and I hope you're OK with me adding you as a buddy.

Hi and thanks for the reply. Well we both loved pretty much everywhere. Sydney of course was a favourite but Melbourne has everything too. So long as we were near the sea, probably south east corner but we can't consider it seriously for a while. Think we need to go back afew times first! Good excuse!
Reply
I don't blame you at all, my wife spent a couple of months in NZ and loved it more than anywhere. I only had 24hrs in Auckland because I could only afford a week or so in the country and so decided to 'save' it until I could go back for longer and explore properly. Make some money here and we'll go back!
Reply
Still struggling to find the time to start properly! I'm totally stacked with keeping other businesses going. I need to assign a certain time to this and stick to it. You?
Reply
Tans Premium
Absolutely okay with the buddy add. Where would you move to in Aussie?
Reply
Tans Premium
That's not an excuse at all. You need to be sure when you move countries. We moved here 18 months ago and are planning on heading back to NZ within the month. Nothing wrong with Aussie but I've realised I love my country more.
Reply
Tans Premium
Sounds like a great plan. We may catch up there some time. How things going with you?
Reply

No other businesses to keep going but I have been feeling a bit un-motivated but forcing myself back into it again. I'm moving countries as well so it's a bit hectic.

I got started with WA because of a referral and because I had experienced so many terrible learning sites. It was great to finally find one that was for real. As for the marketing site, I do PPC and article marketing. I try to write at least 2-3 every week. I should probably do more but I'm busy with other parts of my business as well. How are you doing?

I've been really good thanks. Had a very lazy long weekend completely away from a computer and work. Back into it this week. Hows the article marketing thing going? Don't forget about rapid writer on this site. It has some really good pre-written articles to get you started. Make sure you change the wording around though. You can get slammed by article marketing sites for copying if you don't re-juggle articles.

Thanks for the welcome..So how long have you been with this progam and is it helpful.. I am very new to this and have a long way to go. I have just been reading and taking notes. Do you think I am starting out the right way?
Reply
Tans Premium
Absolutely! My advice to you at this point is don't purchase any products from sales letters that claim they have the system to make you rich online - or, any information product actually. This site has everything you need to learn to be successful online and is the best site that I have found along the way. Most are rubbish and don't live up to their claims. If there is anything you get stuck with along the way, just PM me and if I can't answer the question, I will know where you can find the answer. You've done the right thing signing up here.

Hi Tans. Thanks for commenting on my blog. My keyword phrase was "selling from home". It was basically in the who to area because I explained how to get started, even educating the public about tangible and intangible products to sell. There were only 3 links to my product. I guess Squidoo still considered it too "salesy". They didn't explain their reasoning. Thanks for the information. Next time I will make the article more how to. Here's some gold for the info.
Reply
Tans Premium
Thanks for the gold. I definitely think the links will have an impact. It took me ages to get the gist of squidoo because their rules are so strict. Now I'm making it a personal challenge of mine to become a giant squid in spite of all the rules. Good luck with your squidoo!
