Hi Mate,

Greetings from Sydney Australia and I thank you for adding me to your network.

It is a new adventure but a great one. You are going to learn so much and you will be keeping your brain active at the same time as you move forward.

So to Bonnie Scotland, I would like to wish you the very best in all aspects of life and I will see you along the road through WA?

Cheers,

Brad

Thanks for following me, Ian.

Welcome to the WA family. Success can be found here by following simple directions in the lessons. I'm sure you have made some steady progress so far.

I'm also new to WA. I went Premium May 4 (Joined April 22). I'm here at WA to learn how to supplement my fixed income.

If you enjoy the WA community, look into Going Yearly as soon as you can. I hear there is a lot more interaction at this level. I went Yearly June 1 since I saved up this past May (using my birthday money and savings from tax refund and book sales on eBay). The benefits will be sweet now that I'm dedicated to WA for a year.

All the best,

Louisa

Greetings Ian,
Dropping by, to get an idea of who you are from your profile as I became aware that you are following me... so brilliant,thats a good thing.

Always a pleasure to meet people from other countries than my own. Scotland has always come to mind as an incredible land, with remarkable history and peoples. (Rather proud lot, but I appreciate that as self confidence to stand by their beliefs and character)

So good on you, sir, to be here on the WA looking for opportunities to better your way of life and I can only admire the goals you set to care for and protect your family.

Look forward, Ian, to reading more of your thoughts and successes on your upcoming posts. Also best wishes for your moving through the training...this is a go at your own pace;but never give up environment and there is little standing in the way of making it everything you wish it to be.

Shine brilliant, my friend, respectfully, David.

Hi Ian,
Welcome to wealthy Affiliate and congratulations ongoing premium, you will not regret your decision.

Enjoy the fantastic training here at Wealthy Affiliate and keep moving forward. If you ever get stuck or need a point clarified, ask the community a question and the answer will soon be provided.

What football club do support and follow? Is it one of the two main Glasgow clubs?

I wish you well on your WA journey and have added you to my network to see your success.

All the best.

Hi Age, thank you for the welcome and the follow. I'm looking forward to linking in with you over the coming months. I love your positive bio, very inspiring.
I'm a Celtic fan and have a season ticket and attend the games with my son. We're both Celtic mad. Who's your team? Very brave being a ref. My boy plays, he's 12 and I coach. We don't have very positive interactions with refs!! Lol

Thanks for your kind words in respect of our Bio. As for the football, like Rod Stewart I follow Celtic and United. I was in the Royal Navy years ago and our ship was in Scotland a fair amount and my mate was Celtic mad, he took me to a couple of matches, loved it. For me though Man Utd are my team. I've been to the theatre of dreams a number of times. The team I used to play for, Mousehole AFC played Man Utd at home in August 1987. I flew in with the United squad from Penzance to the Mousehole pitch on the Helicopter. I got selected because I was on the special game committee. If you are interested check out google Mousehole AFC verses Man Utd. I designed the programme for the match and sold all the advertising space. At the risk of boring you I'll shut up now. I hope all is going well for you at WA and look forward to see you succeed. PS I loved it when I was a ref, I was initially a youth coach and got into it from there. Well done for getting involved with your son's team. If you ever want to take them on tour to Cornwall, I've still got contacts in the Kernow youth league. Anyway enjoy this ride on the WA
Platform.

We're always looking for tournaments and trips so if we're looking to go a distance I'll definitely take you up on that offer. Celtic games will always give you a great atmosphere and I'm glad you got to experience paradise!!! I'm also a man utd fan and been a couple of times to old Trafford. We went a couple of years ago with the boys team and had a tour. Very impressive stadium and awesome history. Love your story of Mousehole AFC. That must have been incredible?
WA is going slow but I need to push myself to do more of the training and not just get caught up on following blogs and notifications. I'm loving the support and chats though. Great meeting new people and learning about their experiences. I think I'll stick to youth coaching though. Don't think I could ref. couldn't cope with shouting at myself!! Lol. Catch up soon

Hi Ian,

Just dropping by to thank you for the follow and also for the opportunity to be part of your network.

I´m a great soccer/football fan too. Perhaps you now FC Augsburg in German Bundesliga - I´m follwing the team for about 10 years now. And since my daughter is playing, I´m active as a trainer again...

I hope that your WA experience is going well.

All the best wishes and success!

Hi Ian, that does not surprise me!
My team went up to first league 7 years ago for the first time - and the goal is, every year, not to go down to second league. And it's really good that they've done it for 7 years now.
Celtic is doing a really good job in scotland - hope success on European level will come back soon!
Yeah, it never stops, much time in - but always a good fun!
CU around here at WA and all the best!

Hi, Ian.
Paul Mindra here from Ontario, Canada.

Thank you for inviting me to be a part of your network. I graciously accept by following you back.

Welcome to our Wealthy Affiliate Community.

Ian,

as long as you follow the step by step guides whether it be in your own 'Niche' or promoting the 'Bootcamp' Niche, you simply cannot fail.

Treat it as a business right from day one. Go premium yearly at $359.00 USD. Your purchased domains and hosting are not going to cost more than $15.00 USD per year. For less than $400.00 per year, you are ready to go.

With the 'money thing' out of the way, you will find the learning much easier because you will not be running a 'Marathon' at 'Sprinter' speed.

Complete success online takes time, dedication and a fair amount of elbow grease. If you are up to it, you are at the right place.

Never hesitate to reach out when in need. The Private Message function available here allows you to discuss things that you might not feel comfortable talking about openly.

Sorry for such a lengthy welcome, but as you can probably tell, I am an advocate.

I am very pleased to make your acquaintance and look forward to your success.

Kindest regards, Ian.

@PMindra

Paul.

I know I'm biased, but after all these years,I still find New York to be such an incredible place! There truly is something for everyone!

I had the pleasure of hanging out with another Wealthy Affiliate member from Australia last year, who came to America for the first time. We spent 10 hours just visiting the sites...I'm a native New Yorker and I learned some things!

You and your wife will have a blast!

Feel free to shoot me a PM if you have any questions on sites. There's still a lot that I on't know - as my Australian friend pointed out many times - but I'll do my best.

Hello Ian ... thank you for the follow. I assume you mean European football which we call Soccer here in the US. My son is a huge Soccer fan and also a huge Oakland Raiders fan.

His favorite Soccer team is Mexico and tells me the World Cup starts in June. Mexico's first match is against Germany ... yikes.

I wish you the best on your WA journey.

Thanks so much for the follow, I'm following you back too :)

If you need some inspiration for your WA journey, feel free to check out my recent post:
I'm sure you'll agree, there's some awesome tools on here for Wealthy Affiliate members.
I use Jaaxy for all of my Keyword research and SiteContent to draft all of my posts for my website. Here's a little trick that will show you how beautifully these tools integrate and also SAVE you time:
Canva is also a great tool that's quite popular with other WA members, to design stylish graphics, like headers etc, for their websites.
Wishing you every success and feel free to drop me a line anytime!

Hi Karen, thanks for the pointers. I'd read your post and have taken a note to follow up on the links when I need to. I'm still trying to write my first post so following the training and using jaaxy. Will look at Canvas properly at another point.
I'd looked up your book. You're right, is not usually my type of book but I think it looks a good read and it certainly got good reviews so I'm going to give it a read once I've finished my current book.

Hello Ian, a fellow Scot, and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined and had a look round this site and what its all about you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep up with the training and keep referring to it but if you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 400+ blogs I have published within WA.

You can always get in touch with me as well.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.

Thank you. It is the problem, what to choose? Very daunting! was looking at kids football boots. on looking at web pages, i'm uk based, none of them appear to be affiliate web sites. They all look like official store websites, with no links to buying sites just to their own baskets and am worried this niche wouldn't work, or that affiliate links aren't as strong or successful in the UK?
Reply
Kyle Premium
It doesn't matter where you are located, you are going to be able to target people globally with your website. So that is not to worry, in fact you don't want to target just people in the UK. So you can definitely head in the kids football boots direction.
