About Treadstone02
Joined November 2018
Hi guys n' dolls, I'm Steve and am over in the Staffordshire region of the UK. Today I make a start with 'Wealthy Affiliate' which will hopefully aid me in achieving furthur financial goals. On the surface I know what it's all about, but don't know the details, how it works or even a starting point.

I've dabbled in HTML and website building many moons ago in college so am both rusty and haven't got a clue to this day either. After a little research online I chose 'Wealthy Affiliate' as it seems to walk you through the education and process by the hand in small steps.

I believe in myself, my skills and abilities and want to better myself and my future ahead. Live a little more happier, comfortable and free of financial worry. I like to think that I think outside the box, don't like conforming to a regimented daily lifestyle that people are use to and wish to ideally work from home, earn passive income and have more time to enjoy what is and who are around me. It's these drives that have got me into e-commerce and selling items online, forex trading, self education, online courses and knowledge and basically making use of the internet connection for monetary gains.

I've always been mainly the indoor type, so it's not surprising that my hobbies, interests and passions are with multimedia and all things "geek" or "nerd". I enjoy video gaming, card games, board games, home theatre and movies - of course I go out still and enjoy a beer or two but would rather have a good cup of tea and a biscuit at the side of me, gamepad in hand.

I'm a hard working individual, thorough and meticulous for detail and strive for perfection and completion. One of the turning points for me making moves like this today with 'Wealthy Affiliate' as well as seeking other opportunities I've mentioned above was because of a board game called 'Cashflow 101' under the 'Rich Dad, Poor Dad' brand and designer Robert Kiyosaki which gets you to realise that you will be in a constant "rat race" for life unless you break free, seek opportunities, better yourself, make a passive income and think outside the box. Getting money to work for you and not working for money!

Hi Treadstone02! I wanted to take a moment to congratulate you on your decision to upgrade to premium membership with WA. I did the same about 5 weeks ago now. I can truthfully say that I don't have any regrets. The support you will receive here is amazing. I came to WA as a complete "newbie" not knowing anything about the development of a web site or even the concept of affiliate marketing. Since that time, I have been able to develop my site, have it raked by Google and and getting some traffic to my site. Even though I am not to the point where I am actually making money, I believe that day will come. If I can do this at the age of 64, I have no doubt that you will be able to do the same! Best of success to you!

Good evening and many thanks for the comments and peace of mind. I am also a newbie at this and the concept of affiliate marketing, but I am a "techie", feel confident in my niche, for now and am a creative, chatty individual so should have no problems writing, blogging and getting creative.

Many thanks guys, still in the first few baby steps but am excitied and scared at the same time and hope so much, now that I've invested a lot of money into this and myself that this is not a fiddle or scam.

It is not a scam, but I also wouldn't say it is "a lot" of money either. I had tried several different platforms before coming to WA and trust me, this is not only "NOT" a scam, but it is a very reasonable price for the training you get. If you stick with the training and go at a pace that is comfortable for you, you will have success. It will not come overnight and you won't get rich quick, but it will be a very rewarding experience and you will then have an online passive income stream.
Being scared and excited all at the same time is common with many people. Just get settled in and don't be afraid to ask questions of people.

Hi! Welcome to WA Premium!! You will not regret your decision to go Premium!! The information available here is never ending!! And the training is incredible, and you won’t find anything like it, anywhere else!! Take it ALL in!!

Follow the training! I cannot stress this enough. Do not skip around. Do the lessons in the order in which they are. As well as the tasks that follow each of those lessons. I often jumped ahead in training, on my own, to only later really regret it. Take my word for it, it’s not worth it.

Go at your pace. Slow and steady is my new rule. You'll find you can't wait to learn more in the following days. You’ll want to learn more!! It ignites a new passion within you. It did me! Gave me back my purpose for living! There were a few lessons that I had to watch twice. If that's what you have to do, do it!

And soon you will have yourself an awesome website. Amazing direction, and the tools that you need to succeed in whatever it is you want to do!

You CAN do this!!

Be awesome! Be amazing!! And be successful!!!

Many thanks for your kind words and comments Laura. Slow and steady is also my thought process. Early doors for me at the moment, but I'm serious about making something of this and bettering myself into a future. I had to jump on the Black Friday deal before it ran out. Another way I looked at it was I've also got to find £300+ for a boiler repair at home ready for the winter and unfortunately around the expensive festive season. I knew I was going to find and pay this money, no argument and that's on a boiler - so why not spend and invest on myself and future. Just another way I looked at it but am still 10% sceptical this is a scam.

Hi Stephen,

I'm glad you made it! After you begin to see the powerful tools, training, and remarkable opportunities available here, I know you will be glad also.

Your first task will be to pick an affiliate niche you are interested in. That just means you need to decide what your blog and online business will be about.

To help you out with that, I created a short eBook called 659 Profitable Niche Markets. You can read it here:

https://purrpowerbooks.com/659niches/

Just click the book cover on that page to start reading. You will also find a short video there on the "Big Picture" of affiliate marketing.

Of course Wealthy Affiliate covers those topics also. The eBook and video are just a bit of extra help if you are interested.

The WA Affiliate Program

Wealthy Affiliate gives you everything you need to succeed as an affiliate in your area of interest. Beyond that, you can also promote Wealthy Affiliate as an affiliate:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/share

With a strong recurring commission structure, and a product that people love, this is a dream affiliate program that you now have access to as a Starter Member.

Although it is worth noting that the commissions are double for Premium Members, so the premium upgrade is worth considering for that reason alone if you decide to pursue this aspect of Wealthy Affiliate.

If you are new to making money online, it will take you awhile to fully appreciate everything that Wealthy Affiliate has to offer.

If you have been struggling to get things working with your online business, then be prepared for some "light bulb moments" as you go through the training and begin to understand how the Wealthy Affiliate platform can accelerate your results.

I suggest the following steps to get started:

1. Complete your profile with a brief description of your goals, and of course with a nice photo of your smiling face! This makes a huge difference when interacting with the community here.

2. For a quick look at how easy it is to setup your first website (which is the basis for any online business), I highly recommend you take a look at Kyle's excellent video on creating your first website right here within Wealthy Affiliate in under 30 seconds (yes, this really is possible!): 3. Complete the free training lessons and videos to get started with your first niche website.

GETTING YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

The fastest way to get your questions answered here at Wealthy Affiliate is to take advantage of the live chat and the question area at the bottom of each training module. There are many members here willing to help out.

These ways are faster (than asking an individual person) because you are more likely to connect with people that are actually online here at WA at the same time you are asking your questions.

Even before asking however, the search bar at the top of every page in Wealthy Affiliate is great for finding answers. That is what I use the most.

WA has been in business for over 10 years, so almost any question you can think of has been asked and answered already. The search bar is great for finding those answers,

Have fun in your first few days at Wealthy Affiliate!

Good evening Brad,

Many thanks for the insight into WA and access to the e-book. Tonight and specifically in the last hour were my first few steps, reading text and watching videos. I'm totally new to this and want to soak up everything at a very slow pace and already have got stacks of things to do, read and watch. Exciting times.

Steve
