About Terrycarroll
Joined March 2016
Hi,
I am an Internet marketer with fairly limited experience or success to date. I joined the IM community late in life, as the option of retirement - pipe and slippers and all - filled me with dread!
I have a lifetime experience of being a partner in an engineering consultancy and, for my second career, I have chosen something completely different.
Update on 31st May 2016.
I have now been a WA member for 2 months and I have risen from a ranking of around 24000 to the current status of 2123. I am delighted with this - for want of a better term,- "promotion" and now have over 300 followers. I am really into the training and building my websites and I intend to post new blogs in the next few days.
For anyone just starting out here, this is without question the best and most comprehensive training and co-operation I have seen anywhere and I would strongly recommend it as a starting point.
I wish everyone well and I will stay in touch with all followers over the next few weeks.

Hey Terry,
Thumbs up for the follow. From reading our bio with great interest, one things come to mind and that is if you have passion and belief, anything Ian possible. I want to be able to learn, share and develop throughout my journey and that does not come without the crucial support of fellow affiliates such as yourself. Glad you have shown a willingness to follow me on my journey and I’m sure our paths will cross in the near future .
Speak soon buddy. Be easy!!

Hi everyone

I am jcontinuing to add posts to my website in the affiliate marketing niche, particularly in line with the new SWAG training and I am asking for any of my friends who can spare a little time if they would kindly give me some feedback on how things are looking. Here is my domain:

If you can give me any feedback on any or all of the posts, I would be extremely grateful

Thank you for adding me to your network Terry. I'm obviously new here and am building my first ever webpage, exciting times! I've been diving into the learning and am trying to control my enthusiasm to blast forward with actually gaining a good understanding of all that I'm learning. See you around the WA community!

Thanks for the follow! I just joined WA this past week and while I feel a little overwhelmed still, I do believe there is nothing out there that gives the kind of training and support as WA does and the only reason someone won't succeed is if they themselves don't put the work into it. There is so much knowledge here and I am looking forward to one day soon being able to say I totally "did it!"

Hello, Terry, and thanks for following.
Agreed! Fantastic program, with it's ease, but when stuck...great people, all there, to jump in and answer the "dumbest" of my questions.
My biggest obstacle, in the past, NOT reaching out for help, and NOT engaging with others. I'm, now, on over-drive!
It's a wonderful feeling, that none of us are in here, all by ourselves!

Hello Terry, I am not so much a pipe man but I do enjoy a pair of comfy slippers. I am not too far up the coast (Southampton) so perhaps when I have a bit more experience under my belt (joined 3 months ago) and I have more to talk about we can meet up. Maybe we could start a UK pod or Chapter or whatever!

Hi Paul and thank you for following. I am of course delighted to follow you in return.
Best wishes here on WA. I am sure you will find everything you need here in the way of help and support.
It would be great to meet up as and when we can fit it in and, yes I like the idea of a UK based forum (or whatever).
I'll maybe put a blog up and see what interest there is.

Talk soon

Hi Terry, thanks for the follow - Was wondering how your web site blogs are coming along, am new at this I started a few blogs on my site at kickbacked.siterubix.com but am wondering how I can give my blogs some pop, they are mundane at best right now. So am wondering what kind of design tools others are using.

Thanks again!

Hi TJ. I am currently building 5 or 6 blogs that I intend to publish soon after I finish a current piece of work for a client(which has a deadline).

WA Member GeekHibrid has some good training videos on blogging, which I use as reference is a good starting point for his information. He has a few more videos as well which you will find on his profile page.

Hiya Terry!

I used to have a roomate - from Portsmif, England. Every time I did my Dean Martin impression he used to say "Pipe and slippers, mate!" I think that meant that he wanted me to stop. Anyway, great to see you here. I may solicit your input from time to time, as I am REALLY green. Wordpress drives me frikkin nuts.. That said, I promise not to overdo it..
Cheers,

Hello, Terry. Thank you very much for following me! I just read your latest post about the best age to start an online business. I fall into the 'or older' bracket, too. And this is my fifth day here at WA.

So far, I've not gone Premium and have risen in rank from 60,000+ on day 1 to 7,502 today! I get the impression that rankings here depend on activity, particularly in helping or communicating with other WA members.

I am now following you, Terry.

terrycarroll Premium
Hi Janice and thanks for your reply.

It would be a great move to go Premium early,( particularly given your meteoric rise in ranking), to take advantage of the extra bonuses..

Communication is the life blood of WA and we all benefit from each others opinions, knowledge and attitiudes.

Older is wiser (apparently!) so we should all do well.

Best regards

Hi Terry,

Thanks for the follow and nice meeting you.
Yes the training is great and I am happy I ended up here after getting ripped off only once (thank god).
I think most of us here in WA have experienced that.
It's great to hear success stories.

Wish you the very best Terry and no need to reach for the pipe and slippers

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! :)

Hi Ian and thanks for dropping in.

I am toying with a number of niches at the moment but my main focus is completing the Bootcamp modules before v.2 arrives.

I will stay in touch and I hope you will too.

Hi again Ian and thanks for pointing me in the direction of this article.
I appreciate your comments on Boocamp and I would have continued to "proceed with caution" even before reading this; it has only strengthened my belief ythat all is good within WA but it is not the Holy Grail (yet!)
I will be interested to see what is in v.2 when it is released and I would hope we can have further discussion at that time.
I have advised my website above and would say that it is by no means complete - I am collecting info regularly within the WA community which will help with finishing it.

Hope to talk soon

Hi Terry:

I like your affiliate marketing website. I would suggest however making sure your main navigation menu is all on one line and does not wrap around to a second line. You can put your privacy policy in your footnotes area. It does not need to be on your main navigation. I would also shorten the titles to some of your pages on your website. I like the header image. You are doing great. Thanks for being one of my WA friends. :)

Hi Steph.

Thank you for taking the trouble to review my site. I'm afarid I have neglected it for a while and sadly it is still incomplete.
I really need to get down to finishing it and getting to the monetizing stage.
Thank you so much for your much appreciated comments - which will certainly be implemented - and for being high in my top 10 WA friends list.

Talk soon.

Hi Steph. Sorry for the delay in replying.
I am fine generally, thanks. I have been somewhat inactive on here as I have been trying to extricate myself from the business I have been MD of for the last 7 years - a bit of a slow and painful process but now the shackles are off and I can move forward with my new business.
I always look forward to your notes on Jay's webinars and your great responses to questions. I am happy for you to PM me to chat about anything.
Take care :)

Hi and thanks for the follow.
Today I feel like sharing a great guiding thought for newbies and more experienced alike:

Take up one idea.
Make that one idea your life--think of it, dream of it, live on that idea.
Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone.
This is the way to success.

I wish you plenty of energy, consistency and focus in the future months.

I agree with you, this is the most comprehensive training program online. I am so impressed with the professionalism and the thorough steps in the training. And I spend several years, chasing after all those 'make money online' programs, so I know the difference.

One of those other 'money making' program's training system was good in the beginning steps and then, after lesson 10, it said; 'Lesson 11-20, repeat lesson 10' - you couldn't make any progress after lesson 10!

It reminded me of the saying - 'If you do the same thing, in the same way, repeatedly, and expect different results, that's insanity.'

With WA's training, it's sane, makes sense and will advance us, if we follow the steps and willing to do the work, so that we can make many, many cents, abundantly.

Wishing you much success.

Hello Terry ... thank you for the follow. Yea ... pipe and slippers would be boring. Your second career is going to be a different kind of technical, unless your consultancy was heavy into digital technology. It has been more technically challenging than I expected, but then I completed my engineering degree using a K&E Slide Rule :-). Got my first HP Calculator about 5 years into my Mfg Eng career as I recall.

I wish you the best on your WA journey.

There is a famous quote from Mark Twain:

"If it's your job to eat a frog, it's best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it's your job to eat two frogs, it's best to eat the biggest one first."

And that just means - do your hardest task first or at least as soon as you can in the morning. If you do this then the rest of your day is easy from there!

ANYWAY…

Hello, thanks for the follow and welcome to WA. You are definitely in the right place!

People have plenty to share and there is plenty to learn also so take your time and enjoy the experience.

I may not be in the top 200 list anymore (because I don’t socialize here much) but I do have many interesting posts on my site and some you might really like, many people do. I have over 2,000 positive comments, so take a look and get some ideas as to what you can do with your site.

Let me know if I can help you in any way
