About Terryvandal
Joined June 2017
I live in Winnipeg, Canada! I'm a mother of 5 kids! Three from birth, and two step-children, I consider my own! I homeschooled my three youngest children from middle school on to high school! They graduated :) I used to work regularly on the internet years ago, and was making pretty good money with it, but I had to make a choice, continue working, or homeschool, and I chose my kids! A LOT has changed since those early days of working on my internet businesses! Goole and their many rules for one...lol I create authority blogs now, and getting into the health authority, along with family authority, and since I'm already familiar with it! Homeschooling! I am also creating a homeschool curriculum for K-12 with all the subjects! My youngest child (my baby son) got married in March of 2017 (this year), and they have a baby on the way, so I will be a grandma at 43 :) Looking forward to making money on the internet again!

Hi Terry, thank you for the follow and I like how you seem to have your priorities in order. I think that it's great you could put down your work and making money for your kids and now you are still plenty young enough to begin again. I have no doubt in spite of all the changes over the years you will be able to jump back in no problem! I will be following you along as you rebuild your authority blogs. Can't wait to check them out!

Hi Terry
Lovely to meet you at WA and thank you for the follow. Wishing you fun and great success in your endeavors with your online business.
I have visited Winnipeg many years ago and loved it. We visited the tallest tower building to view the city I remember and all the underground shops. We also saw the stage show Oklahoma whilst there which was so enjoyable.
Take care
Carol

Thank you Terry for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. As a Premium Member you are probably aware of the AWESOME and FREE WA Keyword Tool we have unlimited access to.

This is the keyword research tool I have used exclusively after I became a Premium member 3+ years ago and it has helped me many times to find awesome keywords that have led to Google page 1 rankings.

I created very popular WA Training Tutorials, Part 1 and Part 2, on how to use the WA Keyword Tool for keyword research. If you have not seen it and would like to learn how simple it is to use and a little about keywords, click the below link when you have the time.

Hello Terry,
I did homeschool from 1st through 8th grade and my husband did homeschool from 4th to 12th! Everyone is surprised when they learn we were homeschooled since we both went on to do well in college and graduate with honors. I have completed all the coursework for my Master's Degree as well.

So good for you helping promote homeschool! It sounds like you are well suited to do this!

I hope you are enjoying your time at WA!

Thank you very much :) A lot of people look down on homeschool, but my adult children are doing very well for themselves! :) I used to get asked the question A LOT, "What about socializing?" The answer from me was "My children can carry on a conversation with any age group, from kids to the elderly instead of with just their peers!" They were involved in music recitals, and acting classes, and their church youth group..I figured we had all the bases covered, and I LOVED putting the curriculum together, which I am still working on for other homeschool parents while I also am a part of WA! I'm so happy to hear that you both are successful after the homeschool days :) Very nice to hear the positive stories! When my daughter has kids, she wants me to help her homeschool them, and she wants six kids....lol Anyways very pleased to meet you :)

Yes, it is always strange to see the look on people's faces when they learn I was homeschooled! They are confused since I have a very professional job too!

Nice to meet you too! It sounds like you really have this figured out.

Hello Terry,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hey Terry - yes indeed our paths are very similar! Sisters lol - across the Atlantic!! Congrats on the wedding and soon-to-be-born grandchild. I'm a decade older - but I need to catch up with the blogging etc. Unlike you my online efforts in the past (though voluminous :) ) never quite earned me a living. But hey - there's a first time for everything right?
May you achieve all your goals!!!

Terry, 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 Terry.

Thank you very much Kyle :) I'm really enjoying working on the affiliate bootcamp steps :) I love a challenge! It shows I have 1 starter referral from advertising, but I had a couple people say they joined under me, but it only shows 1, so I was thinking maybe because the site has lifetime cookies, they joined from my link, but they had been at the site before, so they wee put under someone else! Just a thought :) I'm also wondering if there are any template ads for forums or money Facebook groups that I can get some ideas from how best to advertise Wealthy Affiliate!

Thanks for the encouragement Kyle :)

Our affiliate program is completely automated and accurate, so if they did sign-up through your link you would have gotten credit. They must have either deleted their cookies prior to joining or joined through a different computer.

If you want me to look into this, I can definitely do that for you though. What is their username?

Wonderful Terry! :) I am always here to answer any questions and give you a hand as you move forward with your progress.

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! :)

terryvandal Premium
I think I have decided on doing a niche in the mental Health area to start with! I have a lot of ideas for niches....lol
Reply
Kyle Premium
When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

I think I might want to do my Niche on PTSD! I already have been putting together articles for it! I also have a homeschool blog up and running! Is there a way to transfer some of my already made blogs to WA?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Sure, you could definitely head in this direction. It is an evergreen niche.

It is quite a manual process to move a website to WA, but it can be done if it is a Wordpress based site.

You would have to follow these steps:

(1) Download your content locally
(2) Update your domain DNS settings to point to WA. Here are the DNS settings.

ns1.mywahosting.com
ns2.mywahosting.com

(3) Build a website here at WA using the website builder.
(4) Transfer your content over to WA

This is a very manual process and it can be done, but I don't recommend doing it if you have an established high ranking website, I don't usually recommend moving it.

If you need any further help, let me know.
