About TDBauer
Joined March 2017
I love working online as a blogger and doing affiliate marketing. I wish I would have started doing this years ago - I can only wonder where I would be today if I had.

I already have a handful of web pages up and running for the past couple years; one is just a general blog where I write about anything and everything and do some product review, another is a bushcraft/survival type page that is also in blog format, and the third is a site that gives away free archery and shooting targets that I designed. Over a year ago I started a few sites with affiliate marketing in mind. Made some money, but realized a handful of months ago when I stumbled upon WA that I had been doing a few things wrong.

I made some changes on my sites and saw an immediate improvement based on what I learned here skimming through the free training. I had never really done any on-page SEO on those web pages, but that is why I am here, as I want to learn how I can drive more traffic to those pages and get better ranking and maybe earn some more revenue. I came back and joined officially in March 2017 and it the best thing I did. The support and knowledge base here is amazing.

Married, a few kids, a few small grandkids. Hobbies include reading, writing, movies, good TV, camping, hiking, canoeing, fishing, and sometimes hunting.

My three affiliate sites are focused towards back packs, beds, fishing and my latest that I just added in on April 28th is about Wealthy Affiliate.

My other sites are to general and just have Adsense advertising on them.

No doubt you’ll probably see me drop you a few msgs here and there trying to ascertain knowledge from a seasoned affiliate. Hopefully I’ll see you around the WA community.

For now, peace and take care!!!

Thanks for checking out my bio.

Best of luck... this type of online work is great, and can bring some fantastic success. Just takes time to build up a website and get some trust from Google... but when that happens... BAM! ... Income will start coming in...

Hi TD, it appears that one of your referrals, Luluurmenita @Lehnsmotel may need your help and guidance. She may be in danger of losing her WA blogging privileges due to Spam.
Please see the message I left on her post: Feel free to delete my message if Luluurmenita is not one of your referrals.

Hi,
Thank you for adding your WA site. You are the person that introduced me to Wealthy Affiliate through one of your reviews on FB on Fire. I believe (thanks to you) that I have found the training and support I will need to get my on-line business up and running. I wish you continued success in all of your endeavors.
Sincerely,
Mark

Good to meet you and glad you came across my FB on Fire scam review.

Advice I try to give people who come to WA from my Earn Your Success website is this: follow the training step by step. You get ten free course lessons and they are very good at getting people started and on their way towards monetizing websites. Follow the training step by step... don't skip around in the lessons. At the end of each lesson there are 'tasks' to complete, complete each one before moving on to the next. It can be the difference between success and failure.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

Hello Tim,

Glad you found WA and was able to get more traffic to your mature yet under-developed sites. I hope you are now reaping greater rewards for all of your hard writing work. I see you moved up 61 points in rank here in WA very rapidly! That's no small feat but it means that you have been paying it forward by helping here as much as you have enjoyed getting help. I will be following you friend.

Kind regards,

Carl

Hi,

Yeah, was kinda surprised to see that. I don't pay to much attention to my internal rank here. I tend to log in, answer a few questions on the activity dashboard, then jump into my various websites.

I started promoting WA on a new site a few months ago and I think working with my referrals has boosted my rank up.

I just left a comment for you on Site Rubix. Your post was so informative, thorough and well written, I felt compelled to follow. I know you already have sites before joining WA, but it's still very impressive, considering you joined WA March of this year and completed the certification! You're definitemy a guy I want to keep my eye on! All the best to you, Timothy!

HI,

Good to meet you!

Yeah, I started doing this well over a year go. Getting close to two years this coming autumn.

I started with one site on my own and learned on my own. Then a few months into that I created another site. I worked them both and they slowly began to make a little money. It took some time.

The secret is just keep doing it. Don't stop. It really sucks when you have a website with dozens of posts on it that nobody sees, but just keep working on add content and blogging. It will happen.

WA is awesome. I wish I found it back when I started.

That website, Earn Your Success, that you commented on. Is thirty days old tomorrow. It has 7 pages and 42 posts already completed. It is already getting 60-90 organic search visits per day. I have already made some WA referrals on it. It is going to be a bread winner for sure.

The more you do this, the faster you can create a website like I did and start making money. It really works. But when learning it can take some time. Just don't stop. Keep motivated.

Best of luck!
TD

Yeah, one of the challenges is still cteating content when there's little or no traffic. I know I have something good, it just needs some tweaking. I'll be forever grateful for this community!

Timothy, 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 Timothy.
