About TedP
Joined March 2018
My name is Ted, I am new to community, and to ecommerce in general. My only experience has been working with my wife on her eBay business. I have an accounting and management background. And have also worked in sales before as well. I have a solid understanding of how business works, I also know that ecommerce is not only the present, but also the future. It is only getting strong each and every day, and it is absolutely the best way to start a business that can set you free from the every day grind of working for someone else, helping them to reach their goals and dreams, but never your own. With that being said, I firmly believe that Wealthy Affiliate is the vehicle that I can use to reach my goals and dreams...

Hi, Ted,

Thanks for the follow, too. You are in the right place. There are many nagging naysayers that just nag about how Wealthy Affiliate being a scam.

I appreciate your bio and I know that good things are here for you because of your background in e-commerce.

Best regards,

Hey Becky,

Thank you for the kind words. I do have a background in e-commerce; however, I have selected a niche that is truly based off affiliate marketing. It requires bring lots of traffic to the site (volume is 100% key).

I have chosen a niche based on something I have always enjoyed doing...playing poker. I took that topic, to utilize online play and incorporated casino play as a whole into it as well.

The site is about 75% complete...I need more comments to the articles that I've already written to help build site confidence (it is currently at 40%) as I add the review pages for the different sites on my list of of the best online sites to play at. Each of the review pages are actually hidden pages, linked to form the list.

Visitors form outside WA, contribute to the traffic flow, and the the comments tend to carry a little more weight.

If you have time to visit, and can read a couple of post and leave comments, it would be appreciated. I will gladly do the same for you as well (just reply back with your site address).

my site is: findbestonlinecasinos.com

Thank You Again,
Ted

Hello Ted,
Thank you for your following note. I will follow you.
You have to be a great person as within two months you manage to have 1424 friends, amazing and congratulations.
You are senior to me by a month when it comes to WA but probably in a similar situation when it refers to e-commerce. I had two stores on different platforms in the past two years ( no complaints at all as I learned and made little money but not enough to keep them in operation ) Paid a price for open them before having enough understanding of social media,social media tools an even It that I didn't have used too much in the past few years. Excel Spreadsheet was all I need and I would say that I could use them but now I have to learn how to walk comfortably and use it tools and apps and in this area, I am still crawling.
I joined WA expecting to gain my needed knowledge using It and being able to navigate through social media and social media tools at will and comfortably. I found that I joined a group that offers much more as it allows us to become members of this great community that is ready to give us a hand every time we ask for. My perspective also has shifted from short to the long-term meaning that money will come in a steady growth curve.
I don't work for anybody for more than 35 yrs and even now as a boomer I steel feel that it is the only to succeed which is an area that we think alike.
Ted, I wish you a great success as an affiliate marketer and if I could be of any help pls message me and I will do the same to you.

Ted,

Thanks for following me.

So true. Ecommerce is the wave of the future. I just got my fiance to loosen up a little and buy what he wants online. It first started with lawn mower parts and now tools. Now he looks online first before going to the store. It makes shopping way easier for him since he is tired to shop after a long day at work.

He supports me now that I'm building a business online because he understands it is the wave of the future.

You're experience from eBay and sales will fit you well here.

I'm new as well I went Premium May 4.

Are you a Premium member? I encourage you to be one if you're not. I have learned so much these past few days and now I see the benefits of membership.

Joined as a Premium Member 3/26/18. charging forward as quickly as my research allows on one website, and adding to a 2nd website that i started when i started the boot camp. My first affiliate site is coming along nicely, it has several post indexed, but it will have several list that have to have reviews of others sites, and that takes a while to put together....

Ted,

That does sound like a lot of work.

How many hours have you been dedicating since you have gone Premium?

It takes me two hours everyday just to keep up with emails then another 2 hours to watch lessons and do assignments. The research is what takes the most time 4 hours a day. The day passes by fast. Better than any workday I have had on the job.

At least I enjoy what I do and have committed two years for training as if I am going for an associate degree. The bonus is there is potential for income while I learn. And the tuition is way cheaper.

my scheduled every day is very similar to what you just laid out. This morning for example I had 117 emails....they just exploded, I had to move a lot of the blogs to read later, as well as the questions... then started replying back to people, etc... at one point I was actually still getting new mail faster than I could clear the old...lol

louisaparson Premium
I understand. I still haven't caught up on my emails since it took me 4 hours to write my content rich article. I did it in 2 two-hour blocks but did get it finish yesterday. I like to complete a couple of lessons a day. Well it's nice to find someone new putting in a full workday to complete their work.

Like I said before I look at as going back to school for a field I truly enjoy.

Ted I just read your profile, you are a smart man! Continue this journey my brother. As time going forward for you, you will be quite happy with the results. You seem to be a "stick-to-guy" and for some reason I sense you will run with this.

You are surrounded by caring people Ted. I do mean it. The support here is amazing. Even for me after ohhh since last November I am happy with my own personal results.

Hello Ted and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you may 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.

Appreciate the response Robert. I am following the training. The content slows me down a bit, only because i really put a lot of thought into what I write, and to make sure it is correct. I an a tually working on a post for today right niw...was hoping to add 2 post today... by, looks like I will only get the one complete.

I refer to the training ... a lot ... lol. There is just so much that I need to learn, not as much in the why's, but lots a out how to do things...the why's I get pretty quick (which is a good thing, as I have seen so many people struggle with the whys).

Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help?

Thanks Again,
Ted

Hi Ted,

I am glad we met online via WA University Community – the right place to fulfill a dream succeeding in e-marketing, which can comfortably boast its unparalleled training and warm community support if its kind in the world.

To learn deeper each other, welcome to view my profile/bio inside WA as well as the posts inside the websites listed at the right lower corner of my WA profile page.

To succeed, I have been told by WA founders, ambassadors, and supporting members with helping souls with the following in mind and in action:
1. start 5-level Certification Courses.
2. Move on to 7-phases Affiliate Bootcamp Training after Certification Courses.
3. Ask questions as needed and seek any help and support, which are readily available from WA unique supporting souls and helping hands from its members, as evidenced along the path of training; you will not be disappointed.
4. Be consistent and persevering no matter what and will be richly rewarded.

My stay with WA since 9/2018 has confirmed the above is totally true.

All the best to your success to come,


James

Hey Ted, it's great to meet you.

I started out three months ago and had some technical background but no education when it comes to online marketing.

I love building my websites and creating content and to top it off, the community here is incredible.

Have you enjoyed the training so far?

Hey Rick,

I absolutely love the training. I understand the internet, but nothing about building a webpage that will have the traffic needed to generate income. I have what I think is a great niche. I love poker, and have played for years and years. Living in Georgia, though highly limits playing for money, which is probably a good thing since I don't have money to lose anyway. That doesn't detour from enjoying the game or casinos in general.

So when selecting my niche I decided on creating a site to provide information to help direct players to the top online casinos and online poker rooms...as well as providing info on the major individual casino games. The plys side of the niche us that the affiliate commissions are extremely high. My major concern is building the site in such a way that the traffic will be there.

Can always use insite from other WA members as to the quality of the webpage.

Ted

You can always PM a member to ask them if they would give you some comments on your website plus there is a great place to give and receive Website Feedback.

Go to SiteRubix and then select Site Feedback.

This works just like SiteComments. You give feedback on two sites, then you can request one site feedback on your site.

This reminds me that I need to ask for some feedback again.

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!

As you know, I too am new. I agree that e-commerce is the now and the future. I have tried other affiliate "training" sites but they did not live up to what they promised. I have been here only a couple of hours and I have already learned things and am impressed with their training. I think we have made a good choice!

Hi, welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. Good to have you here. I've been a member for several years and have to say its been a great ride.

There are many ways you can use the training here to implement a market and make money.

Just don't give up and work your way through the training "Get Started Here".

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! :)

I was thinking about a niche involving Poker. I actually run a few free poker tournameits for a local poker league. When I pulled up affiliates for poker, almost all of them are outside the U.S. not sure how to handle or if this is too complicated a niche tontrybto start off with. The commissions seem to be very good, percentage wise, but I am not sure how they operate either. Would appreciate your thoughts...

Thanks,
Ted
