Well, I thought I had written something in this earlier. Anyways, I'm 28 years old. I got into internet marketing february 2009. I spent most of 2009 and 2010 chasing the next shiny object, and never really getting any work done. I got a little work down in 2011. This year I've committed to hunkering down, doing the work, and bringing in the money. ;)

I'm originally from Colorado, although right now I am living in Texas.

I enjoy reading, hiking, playing baseball/softball, fishing, hanging out with friends, and having a good time.

Hi Thomas,

Since I read a post on taxes and got to read potpie girl's entries about what was new then "nexus tax laws." I thought I would send you a link the retailers' affiliates have to be concerned with.

We could literally lose our contracts if certain online companies decide to end their affiliate programs to pay their taxes. Here is the link: https://blog.taxjar.com/states-sales-tax-click-thru-nexus/.
(You will have to copy and paste it, I can't figure out how to make it an active link)

It only affects affiliates if companies choose to end their affiliate programs, basically to pay their sales taxes. It is something to spread around. I am copying this to Kyle and getting his thoughts on this.

Thanks again for all the info., I thought I would return the favor.

Your friend,


Jason

Hi Jason,

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment and that link. It's funny that you left the taxjar link because I came across their site a while back and I think I read every article they had! They have a lot of great info on stuff like this that doesn't get brought up a lot. Most of the time in internet marketing people just try to show you how to make money, but really talk about the "business" side of things.

Thomas - I read the article on TaxJar and it seems to me that "click thru nexus" applies to the company selling the product - not to the affiliate that sent the customer to them. If the company selling the product has to pay sales tax due to click thru nexus, then the marketer shouldn't. That would be double taxation. And the marketer is only providing a service - not the actual product. Can you help me?

Hi I'm a newbie and wondered if your tutorial is the way for me to go to stop being constantly notified by people answering the money goal question (or do you recommend somewhere else I haven't seen yet). While doing lessons I interrupt my flow by checking when I receive a notification so I can be prompt in responding to those who have reached out to me. The goals of newbies is not important to me at this time as it's not my Question to them ie none of my business and does interrupt my real 'job'. Thanks for the help.

THere is an easier way. At the top of each post there is a gear icon to the right of a green box that displays the number of comments on a post.

If you click on that gear icon there is an option to remove yourself from the discussion. Once you click on that button you won't receive any more notifications about replies to that post unless you comment on that post again.

Hey there TP, I've been here a short time started out building out two sites and following some of the training. I definitely don't have your background or internet experience that you have. I have come to see the social side of WA. and the business side. Some folks have bridged the gap and made some very entertaining and informative training I have to say. I am at a point now that I need to get my sites content rich and monetized as Bo Tipton says. I am checking out you sites for some ideas. Still figuring out how to collect and manage email lists and how to successfully connect with affiliates in my puppy niche. Any suggestions on training would be appreciated. Thanks for your time.

Hi Carson1, thanks for stopping by. I'm not quite sure my sites are the ones you should be taking tips from as I haven't been financially successful at this. I've picked up a thing or two over the years, so I definitely know my way around the tools pretty well. However, I struggle a lot with taking consistent action.

Typically, with email lists you'll need to have an autoresponder program. A lot of people use MailChimp or Aweber. They usually make it pretty easy to make an opt in form that you can put on your website.

Do you have a merchant site that you are trying to get affiliates to promote? Or are you an affiliate that's just trying to connect with other affiliates in the same niche?

Carson1 Premium
Hey, thanks for your input. I'm working on creating two sites one niche specific. Going to try and sign with affiliate and do blogs and product reviews to promo it. The other one is WA program. Still trying to learn as much as I can as I go. So we'll see. Hey I'm giving it a shot. Still working full time and doing WA a little each week. I will check out my options for an autoresponder. Thanks again see you around. Carson 1

Hi Thomas, I commend you for having the courage to speak up for what you believe to be true.
I think the WA community is absolutely great, but I know through my own experience that people do and will get misunderstood, criticised and judged in hurtful ways.
i would love for this to be a lesson to us all to be aware of judging, criticising and hurting but I am also well aware that we are all humans.
In the end, Each and Everyone of us is reponsible for how we either REACT or RESPOND to such situations.
Wishing you and all members of this wonderful community a wonderful weekend

No problem. I would try to absorb as much information as you can. I believe even if you don't go premium you can still have 2 siterubix sites to build out.

I think if you consistently add content to your website and you have a way to monetize that content through affiliate programs then you are well on your way to making money

Hi Thomas, You seem like a good candidate for my question or anyone PLEASE!! How do I purchase my domain? I see they used 1and1domains.com as an example. I thought domains and hosting were free for premium members. I prefer to purchase my own domain. Cannot go forward until this is answered. Thank you all
Reply
ThomasPaul Premium
I don't recommend 1&1 at all. I used then once and will never use them again. I recommend namecheap.com

You just go to their website and search for a domain name. Once you find one that you like and is available you purchase it. During the checkout process use ns1.mywahosting.com and ns2.mywahosting.com as your name servers

You can setup siterubix sites for free with premium but you are using a subdomain of the diterubix site "example.siterubix.com"

Hosting is included, but any domains you want you have to purchase.

I'm not sure how long it will take hostgator's name servers to resolve to WA hosting, but you will need to go to this page:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/domains

and add your domain to the left of the blue button that says "Create Domain". If your domain has resolved it will let you do it. If it hasn't try a little bit later. After you have succesfully done that you can create a website with that domain from the website tab.

Hi Thomas
Thanks for the follow. Hawaii always sounds so exotic!
As for computers and software, it seems that the more "user friendly" they make computers and software the more you need to know! I have an ASUS laptop which seems to have developed a mind of its own-hmm may be it has, with the advances in AI!
Anyway every now and then it decides to spit the dummy and do its own thing, unfortunately its usually not my thing or just when I need it the most!
I also have a PC which my son cobbled together from some spare parts he had and it just keeps chugging away, might be slow but is very reliable. Any way best of luck. Cheers

I hear you on the computer thing. Recently I had the DC input cable break, so the battery wasn't charging. I had to disassemble the entire laptop including taking the heat sink off of the processor just to replace a tiny cable. Such a pain in the _____! But it's still running like a champ, and I don't feel like spending the money to buy a new one, so I'm just sticking with this one for now.

Hi Thomas, my name is Tom, and thanks for the "FOLLOW me", .... you and I have come to the right place, and like you wish to learn more and become that person who can help and share valuable knowledge. Everyone of us have a unique talent and want to help as many others enjoy working from home in a profitable "Home Based" business. Riches, won't make you happy, but having enough is all one needs, ....... should I be blessed with more than I really need in this life, this would put me in a better position to help others in the future.

Hey!,...I look forward to corresponding with you. WA is the right place to be, and will get all the support from Kyle and Carson and others who are in a position to count themselves worthy for bringing their talents to such a wonderful site. As for me, I have made my presence known to all, looking for that special person to connect with, also to let you know that I have just joined as a premuim member on 11th October 2013 and in great need of support,. Thanks for taking a look at my page which you are more than welcomed to see what I am up to and would love to engage with you also.

Yes! would love to get to understand Internet Marketing a little better and WA's members will be the right source to follow in future. I have no idea of how to go about this yet, but I am going to watch every training video that comes out just to improve driving traffic to my websites of the future, but am willing to put all the time and energy in to make it my life's pension.

Hi Tom,

If you ever have any questions feel free to PM me. I can't guarantee I will know the answer, but at the very least I can help you find one.

Don't forget to apply what you are learning. It's easy to just go through the training without taking action, but taking action is what is going to get you results.

I like the BuyStraightRazors.co site, it's clean and so is your shaven head on the about page. Cool! Just wondering why a .co domain and why your not sporting an affiliate link in the bottom right hand corner of the site for the Thesis Theme.

I love the design on your FindLoveGetMarried.com site as well as your about me page. Your very transparent. I like the information you provide as well.

Love your low down on EN on your MakeLegitMoneyOnlineNow.com. I went all in about a year ago and went all out just as quick. The training and support were ridiculous and so was the hype. I think I was drunk when I signed up. Lol

Getting late here, but I will go back and share a some of your posts on my social networks. All of your sites look great!

It's two names. Thomas is my first name, Paul is my second name. When I signed up Thomas was already taken so I just added in my middle name.

I have a lot of experience reading courses. I've made a little bit of money over the past few a years, not a whole lot less than $2000. That was mostly with pay per click and it wasn't even profit lol.

I've been around for a little while, but haven't taken nearly the amount of action that I need to take. I'm still have a long ways to go.

If you have any questions feel free to hit me up. If I don't know the answer I can at least help you find the answer.

Hi Thomas, there, that's better. I can relate to that though, I've used my name for different things and haven't been able to use it because it's already taken, that's why I stick with Kiya05, it's something I can remember, and no one else has it, so far. I kind of like to keep things consistent if possible, it's easier.
At least you have the experience to know what they're talking about, that's the hardest thing about learning new things from scratch, is the terminology, and even the pros forget at times, that you might not know it yet, since it comes so natural once you learn it, like ROI, I watched some video training yesterday, and they said it 3 times, but not until they used it in a sentence where it made sense, did I know what they were saying, and I KNEW that one.
Well, thanks a lot for the offer of help. That's the biggest thing for me, is to be able to get help when I run into a snag, which I have no doubt I will, but no problem if you can get the answer. So many people have been so helpful, that I know once I need it, I can get the help, without pounding any single person with questions, so I'm adding you to my list, and really appreciate the offer.
Anyway, good luck to you, and I wish you lots of success.

Thanks for the follow Thomas. I have only been in Hawaii once, and that was a brief layover on my way to the Phillipines back in the 70's. I've wondered how this recent economy struggle in the states has affected the economy over there. Best of luck in 2013 and beyond.

Hi Thomas, I find WA a great community with great resources. There is so much to learn here and a lot of reading to do lol. But I believe taking action is the key. I'm trying to build a website siterubix for my niche. I think it's more better to buy my own domain. I'm taking classes for fashion and sewing. English is my second language and I'm learning English too..I want to improve in English so I can be able to write articles for my niche..Anyway Nice talking to you Thomas Have a bless day.

Enjoyed exploring your websites... You have a great sense of humor... found myself giggling as I continued to read... I notice you illude to traffic issues and communicating only with electrons... instead of ppv or ppc ads... may I suggest using "youtube" spots with clever entertaining content... it's free and yields great results when used properly. Your "findlovegetmarried" and "buystraightrazors" sites... could be great candidates for this and your humor could go a long way... it could be fun as well as funny... (just thinking outside the pp_ box)...
Reply
ThomasPaul Premium
lol, glad you enjoyed my sites. I get a little judgmental of my writing and don't like to share it a lot. I have to admit most of the content on findlovegetmarried was outsourced though.

I'm definitely going to do some youtube spots. My idea was to summarize the article, and while the summary was being read have a little power point with entertaining drawing playing or something like that...

Thank you for the suggestions. :)

Reply
ThomasPaul Premium
Hi Audrey, yeah Hawaii's a little different than Colorado but I like them both. I think I'll always like Colorado a little bit more than Hawaii. I've been exposed to internet marketing for too long to just give up. It would always be in the back of my mind somewhere haunting me I know it works, I just need to do the work. :)

I'm starting to outsource more and more of the work, and as a result I'm getting more done since I'm not putting it off.

How's the training for the half-marathon going? I'm thinking about doing a marathon but maybe it will be smarter for me to do a half-marathon first.
Reply
livinlyfe Premium
My brother lives in Colorado Springs and it's just beautiful there. Of course I've been on the East Coast my whole life and if I'm not near water I feel like I can't breathe.

That's exactly what was happening to me...I was feeling haunted knowing that this works just not having the focus. Since being in WA though I FINALLY narrowed down my niche and have been full steam ahead. :)

I tried outsourcing some of the "niche" ideas I had because they were things I was interested in but couldn't write about. I have some articles if I ever decided to go that way but for right now it's good practice for me to write my own because my niche has a lot to do with my own experiences in life. Can't outsource that as much as i would love to. ;)

As far as the half marathon I had to get real with myself. I was only doing it because my best friend was so passionate about it and it was fun getting to know a bunch of other people. I was training but there was no real desire. I want to stay healthy but I enjoy weight training and kickboxing soooo much better than running. So I've quite training for the 1/2 marathon and have been enjoying the heck out of my own workouts.

If you have never done a 1/2 marathon before I would definitely recommend doing that first and then moving on to the marathon. I had gotten up to 10 miles but I'm pretty satisfied with that because I couldn't even go 1/2 mile without feeling like I would pass out. :)

Good Luck if you do the 1/2 marathon and keep me posted. I'll encourage you along the way.

Nice to meet you and thanks for the follow! I wasn't entirely sure if my training was truly unique - it was my first one - I wanted to cry when I read it had to be four pages! I wasn't even sure how to do it or if it would work out but I got it though. I live in Colorado - about 20 miles east of the main Colorado Springs Populace. Just enough to get out of the smog. I like my minerals to be ingested -not inhaled. I have a decent place I'm in and am building a house another ten miles east of here that has the best view I've ever seen on the plains... almost. The view from the ranch I worked at when I was twelve was the only one that was better - the windmill in front of the setting sun was what topped that one off. I've never been to Hawaii but my son-in-law is from there. I've never done internet marketing before but am really happy to have found an avenue for the writing I like to do.
Reply
ThomasPaul Premium
Nice to meet you too! I liked the training you made. It perfectly illustrated one of the problems I have which is looking at the big picture and then becoming intimidated and freezing...

It also reminded me of a construction job I had one summer. One of the first few days on the jobsite the owner of the company saw me standing around doing nothing. He asked me what I was doing to which I replied "Nothing, because I finished what I was assigned and don't know what to do now."

He then told me that he would rather have me ask him 1000 times each day for something to do than stand around doing nothing for one second. That piece of advice served me well when I joined the military. All of my supervisors loved me because I was constantly looking for stuff to do and staying productive instead of goofing off.

I actually grew up and lived in Glenwood Springs until 2004. I went over to the front range every once in a while, but spent probably 98% of my time on the Western Slope

Hi Thomas

I'm having to reply here to your comment on one of my posts as I am unable to reply where you left it.

I'm glad that you've not come across scams. I have and to my considerable cost and I didn't label it a scam without trying it. I did fully try what was offered for more than a year.

It's really not difficult to label something a scam if you realise very early on that what has been promised does not compare with what you're receiving and I'm not talking about poor customer service. I've experienced being given telephone numbers that turned out to be bogus, employers who set up somthething who I was then told had never existed in a company. That is a scam

There are a lot of scams out there and I think the post that Kyle shared with everyone the other day made a stark argument in demonstrating that.

Best wishes

Beverley
