Hi, my name is Trish, and I want to Thank YOU for stopping by my profile to discover a little bit about me.

As a website designer, I focus on helping local businesses with their online presence. Have been working on computers since 1995 ... and now, well ... I’m addicted :-)

Living on a website designer's income, working ONLY for local businesses will have me starving, thus my desire to learn from all of you experts as to how to make money online.

Am looking forward to learning from THE BEST marketers here at Wealthy Affiliates.

Hi Trish,
Nice meeting you and thanks for the follow.
I never thought I would be addicted 3 months ago but now I am also totally addicted.
It is great there are so many good knowledgeable people around to help us and keep us up to date. That is really important because there are so many new things constantly popping up week by week or if not day by day.
Wishing you all the best
Cheers

As for knowing website designing, those rules are changing all of the time and this community is a great place to stay up to date.

You are so right! I have a LOT more to learn about affiliate marketing. Weeeeeeh ... and WA is a great place to learn this too.

Website design knowledge will certainly be a big advantage for you here at WA Trish, so you have come to the right place to use your skills I think. You should find it quite easy to leverage your web design skills to generate a significant income, if you follow the training and in particular pay attention to the keyword related content marketing training. I'll follow you with interest.

Hey Gary,

Website designing rules are changing all of the time, so, though I do have the advantage of not being so afraid to Google search my way to discovering a fix for myself (back in '97 we had to go find the info ourselves as there were no books on website designing), I am in the same boat as any other beginner here when it comes to affiliate marketing.

I am enjoying what I'm learning here at WA, and loving the secured hosting we now have (https) for our registered domains.

Having started last year, I do think it would be to my advantage to take the Certificate Courses over again. I'm hearing there has been lots of new info added.

Thank YOU for following me right back!

Good morning Trish, greetings from a windy but sunny south of Portugal where I came on a weeks vacation to visit Danish friends who live in Canada. Great to be a website designer, I wish I could be like that. I design quite nicely in my head but to put it into real, the technical stuff so to speak, that is difficult. Anyhow, I will continue and perhaps one day I will also master this art.
Thank you for the follow and have a good day.

Regards, Taetske

Nice to meet you Taetske!

Portugal is a destination friends have been talking about going to in winters. Anything to avoid our nasty cold Canadian winters :-))

Stick with Kyle's training in the Certification Courses and I'm sure you will do find with the technical stuff. Believe me, the techy stuff has changed drastically over the years, and WordPress has made creating a website a lot simpler ... though there is a true advantage to having a working knowledge with HTML.

I'm here learning affiliate marketing, but am also getting brushed up on what's new with WordPress every time I try helping to answer a member's question ... so, I'm loving that aspect too.

As for web pages and all the settings freaking you out, they shouldn't need to do that. Website standards change so often that as long as you follow the instructions set out by Kyle in the Certificated Courses you will be fine.

Looking forward to following you alllllll the way to success this year!

Hey Trish - I'm sure that you do straight WP installs, so I'd be curious how SiteRubix fits into your work. Also, you've probably faced many more challenging situations with local marketing than what folks here tackle. So, I'm curious what you get out of being a part of WA.
Reply
Triblu Premium
Great question John, and I have detail the answer in a post shared here: Not sure where you get the idea that I only do straight WP installs. I've been doing website designing LONG before WordPress was created.
Reply
johnchang Premium
I don't think I said "only" - it was more a comment on straight vs. SiteRubix..and asking about how / whether this platform offers you anything. Like you, I *can* do a straight install with regular hosting but find that SiteRubix saves a bit of time for some cases. The trade-off, of course, is using their domain vs. your own.
Reply
Triblu Premium
Oooh ... okay. Well ... I use both my own AND WA's servers. Which do I find best?
Well, for local marketing reasons, I make sure my local business uses local hosting - explanation here: http://www.eparrs.com/blog/should-you-use-international-or-local-hosting-servers-benefits-of-hosting-your-website-local/

And for affiliate marketing ... well ... here of course, because US based affiliate marketing sites done right, do best ... leastwise that's my take on it.

Hope I have understood your question properly this time. Sorry 'bout that.

I too was once addicted to computers, during the mid 80s I was a programmer.Got out (I was burnt out), went to Food & Beverage. But the skills I brought were very handy for POS systems. Back to computers now, and it is like I am back at school. You miss a lot when you do not turn a computer for 30 years. I used Lotus 123 until 2007. Thanks for the follow, hopfully in the future I can show you something.

Thank you for the follow, appreciate it greatly and following you back. I definitely understand what you mean by starving, working only for local businesses.

The problem for me is that they don't always know what they want themselves and that's what makes the job difficult and prolongs the job.

Because it is only me I don't want to take on too much because they always seem to all be ready at the same time and I don't want "any" unsatisfied clients.

Glad to have you in my network Trish!

You are very welcome Sophia, and Thank YOU for following me right back.

I hear you about not wanting unsatisfied customers. That's why I have a 100% guarantee money back if not satisfied ... and, am picky as to whom my customers are. Unsatisfied customers cost any business way to much money. :-))
Reply

You're welcome.

Definitely, I need to be more picky! I don't want any unsatisfied customers so I work extra hard for my clients and I'm proud of only having one bad experience because of my second client thus far (besides them taking too long to make a decision on what they want).

I have the work ethic and I have a drive to please my clients and I love having satisfied customers. I just need to pick up more clients with less upkeep but I also realize that this is the beginning and it starts from somewhere.

Have a wonderful progressive day today and a flourishing 2017!

Reply
Triblu Premium
Well Thank YOU Mason, I truly appreciate your following me.
My best piece of advice that I can give you is this ...
Never skip any of Kyle's training be it the Get Started Here (Certification Course) or the Bootcamp training.

Those who have the most difficulty are those who skip either some of most of the training and then wonder why they become confused.

My dad used to have a great saying that I think can apply here too ... Rome wasn't built in a day. In other words, don't expect to build your site and they will come. It takes time ... could be as much as a year ... or two (depending on the niche you choose). So ... don't give up too soon.

Best wishes,
Trish

You certainly have a head start with websites by already being a designer. I do know that you will learn plently here; all the tricks of the trade so to speak. Good friends of mine have a website designer and I must say they don't know these!

Work hard, have some fun and don’t forget to ask questions.

A very nice boss once told me, ‘Helen, when you ask a silly question everyone else breathes a collective sigh of relief because they don’t have to!’ And that is so true. No question is silly so ask away.

If I can’t help I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Hi Budi,

That's what the Certification training is all about.

Should you need EXTRA help (above and beyond the training) that's what the community here is all about ... helping each other. So, should you find yourself in need of help, be sure as a question to the entire community.

In this way, if I am not online for a few days (which happens sometimes may because I run a business) then others here who are online at the time you are ... they will be able to help you.

Not to worry. If I see a question posted from ANY member whom I can help out with advice, I do!

Here at Wealthy Affiliate you NEVER have to feel all alone.

Thanks too for your compliments on my websites.

My personal blog started years ago now, and I tend to use it to keep stuff so I know exactly where to find it (LOL!) or things I want to share with friends and family. I was SHOCKED at how many others have been enjoying my posts ... which spurred me on over the years into sharing even MORE info ... like my rant about Ontario Hydro.

I truly appreciate your feedback on my style of writing ... though I think I sound more like a stuff shirt on my two new affiliate marketing sites ... the other 2 shared here.

Your doing great with your 3 sites Phil. Keep up the learning ... and just make sure to fix any minor spelling errors you find or grammar errors. That's where a lot of sites will lose credibility.

Believe me, I STILL find boo-boos on my posts and scold myself once I discover them ... LOL, sometimes YEARS later when I find them.

Phhhhheeew. Serve my right for the niche(s) I picked :-))

Thank you too for your advice on checking your blogs out ... which, I will do once I get more time to.

Best wishes for you and your endeavours too.

TrishParr, I wish you the best in all you do. I also would like to learn more regarding how to succeed with affiliate marketing. As I have said, if I can secure enough in the way of commissions I can go forward with my inventions for the betterment of all. Take care for now my friend.

Thanks for following me Triblu!
I've noticed you've been working on computers since 1995, and just wanted to let you know that I build computers from scratch, I'm also addicted, also if there's anything you'd like to chat about (pc) related or anything I'm very interested in helping.

You said that you were a web designer, well at the moment I'm very new to web design in fact I have no idea to where to start maybe we could mentor each other.

Thanks!!

You're very welcome Sauce09 ... you've no name nor profile details. Wha' happened ... are you shy?

If you follow Kyle's step-by-step instructions in Course 1, you're bound to do better than absolute newbies, I'm sure. However, should you EVER need help, I hope you'll always feel free to ask me ... or ANYONE else here at WA. That's what we're here for ... helping each other.

Looking forward to your following me back. ;-)

Hello Trish and Welcome to wealthy affiliate.
You will probably know by now that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
So can I suggest you browse some more of the 250+ blogs I have published within WA.
I'm sure you will go away with lots of tips and advice.
Thank you for the follow as well and I will follow you.
Remember, you get stuck creating a site or anything else, you ask ok.
Enjoy your day.

Hi Trish, thanks for following me - it's nice to meet you here at WA!

I wish you to become an AWESOME online marketer (if you aren't already :) ) and live a life of your dreams!

My greatest passion is video games and I strongly believe that games can influence our lives in a very positive and beneficial way. I'm always ready and willing to discuss the topic, so feel free to contact me anytime, if you're even slightly interested.

Also, if you ever need anything, have questions to ask, thoughts to share or just want to chat – just send me a message and I will try to help as best I can.

Cheers, good luck and see you around!

Wow Dmitriy,

Thank YOU for your offer. Though I stick with website designing because I enjoy it, I KNOW that gamers are the ones who push technology to keep ahead of the demand for abilities for ALL other computer users. So, yeeeeeeeah! for the gamers ;-)

I've only ever tinkered with affiliate marketing and only recently decided to take the plunge to learn it properly. Heck, if I can make $100 US funds tinkering ... just imagine what I could make when I get serious and follow proper educate :-))

The ability to ask for help goes both ways here, so if you have a website design question, I'd LOVE to help YOU out. Don't you just looooove WA?! Makes me feel like I'm back with the crowd I learned HTML from, back in the days of Window 3.1 :-))

Thanks again,
Trish

Dmitriy Premium
Hey, thanks for reaching out, Trish!

Windows 3.1 - yeah I remember that one. Gosh, I think I was - how old? 10? Maybe even less. Actually, I had my first experience with it when I was older - Win 95 was already there, I believe. I had just got my hands on an old PC - it had Norton Commander and Win 3.11... I remember playing Wolfenstein 3D on it. And "Home Alone". Those times, lol.

Yeah, opportunities are limitless here, I bet you will be able to earn enough to live the life on your own rules.

I may actually need your help with web design as I know almost nothing about it and build my websites around that lack of knowledge. If you have enough time - and desire to do so - could you maybe take a brief look at my site and tell me how I could improve it? I have it posted in my profile.

Thanks again!

Well Dmitriy,

For a fella who claims not to know much about website designing, you've done a bang-up (great!) job setting up http://lc-games.com/ that's for sure. That's without my conducting an actual website audit, of course.

Is it a Wordpress theme? If so, have you made sure to include an SEO plugin and populate that plugin properly?

If yes, then you're a well on YOUR way to success!
Reply
Dmitriy Premium
Thanks for getting back to me, Trish!

And for your praises :)

Yes, it is a Wordpress theme, but I tinkered with the code a bit, as the basic customization tools weren't able to provide exactly what I needed.

As to an SEO plugin, I have All-In-One SEO Pack, mentioned by Kyle in one of the lessons. What do you mean by properly populating it? So far I made only a few adjustments that were shown in that lesson - nothing else. What else should I do?

Thank you again for all your help - I really appreciate it!
Reply
Triblu Premium
I haven't gone further than Course 1, Lesson 5 myself Dmitriy, so that MIGHT be covered in more detail by Kyle in future lessons.

If not, you could try searching for instructions on YouTube ...and, be sure to find the most recent "how-to" video, as the plugin has changed a lot over the years.

Right now, I'm still in the stages of building my 1st website here. I'm a tad behind ... but have 14 pages to build besides the loading page. Only 3 more to go :-)) right now though ... then I can get back to the lessons to see what Kyle has to say about the SEO plugin.

How far along in the course are you Dmitriiy?
Reply
Dmitriy Premium
Thanks for your suggestion, Trish, I'll surely check out YT.

Wow, so many pages already! I think by the end of Course 1 you barely have the framework of your site with a little bit of info on the main pages. Do you write your content "in advance"?

I'm asking, because that's what I've been doing lately for my second site, lol. I write reviews as soon as I realize I have the time to sit 6-9 hours straight doing nothing but writing :)

As to the lessons, I'm currently at Course 5, Lesson 5.
Reply
Triblu Premium
I've written the loading page and 14 pages that are linked TO the loading page. Each one is offering a different product. I had a REAL tough time finding a niche, so broadened my horizons a tad. :))

Yes, on my own websites, I'm the only one I trust to write my content ... and, yes, I wrote my content in advance.

LOL, you can well imagine how many hours I've spent writing 15 total pages.

WOW! You surely are well into the coursed. Keep up your great progress ... and be sure to let me know when you start earning form your sites. That'll help encourage me on even more.

Dmitriy Premium
Hey,

I've just checked out your site (trishparr.com) - looking good! Of course, recipes instantly became my favorite section :)

The other one (localbusinessideas) is also nice, I take it that's the one with 14 pages? The theme looks really good.

About earnings: I can encourage you, as I already earned around $8 from LC-Games. Now I'm trying to make it make more money for me :) I hope this will give you some additional inspiration and motivation to work even harder - I know such things do it for me.
Reply
Triblu Premium
Cool Dmitriy and THANK you for the inspiration. Did you make that $8 from your website hosted here or on it's own domain?
Reply
Dmitriy Premium
You're welcome, Trish :)

It's hosted here, although I bought the domain name on NameCheap.
Reply
Triblu Premium
WOW! I've been soooo hoping to be able to leave my affiliate pages here.

I have one more site to finish then will get back to the lessons. In trying to discover a new niche, I came across two different groups of products that intrigued me ... so hopefully, my websites will entice buyers ;-)
Reply
Dmitriy Premium
BTW, you can now even buy domains here, at WA - I actually purchased one here for my latest site. It is very convenient to have all in one place :)
Reply
Triblu Premium
Ah shuckers ... too late. I purchased 2 yesterday after our chat.
Next time, I'll check here. Thank YOU so much for your great advice Dmitriy. I truly appreciated it.

Am not pointing the new URLs because the sites are far from ready.

Oh ... did you read the tips regarding posting a clearly written affiliate disclosure on all your web pages? I had forgotten about that issue and spent a couple of hours this morning, posting a disclaimer on all my web pages ... well ... 'cept my contact and disclaimer pages that is.
Reply
Dmitriy Premium
Ah, I don't think that's bad - I actually only found this out myself recently and almost by accident, as I decided to quickly go through some of the lessons again :) Those domain names from other sources work just the same anyway.

Yeah, I read quite a few tips on disclaimer/disclosure some time ago, but still haven't placed them everywhere - just have them on their own pages and that's all. Probably will finally do it this week - thanks for reminding me, btw :))

Hi Trish, it's so wonderful being able to connect and get to know you. Great, we are expanding our network at WA together. Before I forget, let me give you a warm welcome to WA and look forward if we can journey at WA together learning from each other on site building and also our discussions and encouragement together. Do you have any niche idea in mind already, if not how about we brainstorm together, wouldn't that be a good idea. I'm very excited and really look forward to working with you together at WA as it gives me lots of motivation and encouragement everyday working at WA with you; it will be so wonderful. I look forward to hear from you soon. Keep n touch and take good care. Terry :)

Hi Terry,

I'm at Course 1 Lesson 5 - you know ... got my website up and have yet to complete it ... so, yes ... I have selected a niche ... and once I have more time (it's 4:24 in the morning here, I couldn't sleep) I'll get back at it ... of that you can be sure.

Thank YOU for your offer to work together ... yeah, of course! Working together will help each other inspire forward learning.

Thanks again,
Trish

Hi Trish
Take your time, it's best to go slow and understand all the details, in that way your site will have solid foundation. I did that too at Level 1, slow but surely. Now I'm at Level 2 Lesson 4 and go delayed because I've been pretty busy at the day time work. Which part of US are you in, California.

I love working together as it gives us exponential motivation, inspiration, and brainstorming too. At the same time we also get to know each other and can be the best of friends too ;)

Hey Trish, how's everything coming along now that you've been a member for a few days? I hope you've found your way into the "Get Started Here" training toward the top of the menu on the left and that you're enjoying yourself so far!

Some people gravitate towards the "Affiliate Bootcamp" training which is something I don't recommend right off of the bat if you've never made money in internet marketing before. I have a detailed blog post covering this topic if it's something you're wrestling with and you'd like me to send you the link.

I know that may be a bit confusing, but if you have any questions at all don't hesitate to ask! I hope you're enjoying your time here so far :)
Reply
pribs Premium
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! :)
Reply
Triblu Premium
The niches I'm looking at right now are as follows:
- Anti-Aging
- Beauty
- Gardening - stop critters from eating my flowers
- Pet - behaviour problems like eating poop
- problem barking
- Mole removal
- Building SEO ready websites

Things I'm curious about ... or things I'd like to help others be able to do for themselves.

Thanks for asking pribs!
Reply
pribs Premium
Hey Trish! These are all pretty high-level (besides mole removal, which could be pretty tough to monetize). Try to narrow them down more to a subtopic or two within each niche. Taking on any of these as they are will be too broad and competitive for the training here at WA.

Thank YOU for the input pribs ... hmmmm .... guess I'll need to re-title my website that I just started here.

No problem - that's what I'm here for! And don't worry, this is a perfectly normal part of the process. Just dust yourself off and get back at it with the new information you have - as long as you always do that, you WILL find success in this industry given time!

It looks like you're moving along very nicely, Trish! I see you have your profile all setup and hopefully you've been engaging with the community a bit!

I keep a pretty good pulse of my referrals here, especially the ones that are working hard to help themselves (and so do the co-founders of Wealthy Affiliate, Kyle and Carson), so if you're willing to work hard here, I'm happy to help support you every way that I can!

Let me know if there's anything I can help you with.

Hey Trish! I wanted to start you off with a quick note that could SIGNIFICANTLY impact your success with Wealthy Affiliate. Read this entire message if you are serious about being successful in internet marketing (it's lengthy, but I'm not joking when I say that this advice could make or break your entire internet marketing career):


1) You'll need to work consistently and hard. There's going to be a lot to learn in the beginning and you may feel overwhelmed at a point, but keep pressing forward and you'll make it through. It happened to me and every other successful internet marketer at some point, and the only way to become successful in this industry is to push past that overload whenever you get there.


Do yourself a favor and commit to a number of hours that you can work each week right now. It doesn't have to be massive, but it should be more than 10 between evenings and weekends at least. Just remember the more you work each week, the faster you'll learn and draw closer to success.


After you've picked the number of hours you can work each week, commit to working that much for AT LEAST six months - a year would be better. You won't see results immediately in this industry, and being consistent is the key. Pick a number of hours you can work each week, then work those hours for at least six months. It's something you've probably never done in this industry, and this advice alone will make a HUGE difference in your chances at succeeding with internet marketing as long as you take it seriously and STICK WITH IT.


2) I recommend starting off with this training (which you can access with your free account): It just scratches the surface of the MASSIVE amount of helpful content in WA, but you'll get a good "feel" for the teaching style here and begin to see the power of all of the great things they're teaching here at Wealthy Affiliate.


3) DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE COMMUNITY. Two of the best places you can go to for help when you get stuck are the "Live Chat" and the "Classrooms" sections located on the panel to your left. You'll find direction and inspiration through the community here, which is one of the reasons I recommend WA so highly.


4) Finally, you don't ever have to upgrade to the premium account here at Wealthy Affiliate if you don't want to. You'll have limited access using your free account for as long as you wish. HOWEVER, if you're serious about internet and affiliate marketing then you should invest in the premium membership for AT LEAST one month. You could look back on it years from now and see it as a pivotal moment in your internet marketing career, but you never will if you don't at least give it a try.


Check it out for a few days though - you don't need to upgrade right now. Make sure it's a good fit for you, and if you upgrade within the first 7 days you'll receive your first month's membership at more than 50% off. I keep my membership active and recurring every month so I can be here for the people I refer like you, so realize that I'm putting my money where my mouth is here!


On top of that, if you upgrade to a premium membership at the discounted rate within the first 7 days I have a special bonus EXCLUSIVE to people that join WA through me and upgrade within the first week of creating their free account. This bonus will show you how to be twice as successful with WA or any other legitimate internet marketing program out there and gives you some very valuable video lessons (which I recorded for you personally, of course) to ensure you get off to the right step in your internet marketing business.


I keep a close watch on the list of people that upgrade from starter to premium, so I'll send the bonus your way within 24 hours. If you upgrade and don't receive it within that time frame for some reason, just post on my WA profile and let me know!


I don't offer that bonus so you'll spring for the membership and make me more money, I offer the bonus just in case you needed that tiny "push" to make sure you invest in this training because I know that you will use for the rest of your IM career and it could change your life. I've referred hundreds of people now and I have NEVER had anyone tell me they were dissatisfied.


Best of luck to you! You're about to embark on a journey that could change your life forever, so make sure you take it seriously, put in the time and effort, and expect great things in return!


You know where to find me,
Ian Pribyl


P.S. I know I've thrown A LOT of information your way in this message, but I wanted to give you one last thing. Here is a video tour of the members' area to help ensure you get the most out of your free membership as possible: http://youtu.be/NDmMcMtMB8c


Sorry for sending so much your way at once, I just want to set you up for success as much as I possibly can!

Thank YOU Ian, I had forgotten WHO directed me here.

Am thinking of creating a blog post like you did, to warn others not to waste their money.

Was doing some due diligence in investigating John Thornhill and his training when I came across your post.

Several complaints have been posted about his training and he has NEVER responded ... not smart. The freebie his offer sent me when signing up for his webinar was soooo riddled with grammar and spelling errors ... WOW!

Anyway ... THANK YOU for saving me nearly $4,000 CND with your post! Though I signed up here way too early as I couldn't become active until today ... sadly, day 5.

Obviously, I have gracefully "bowed-out" of John's training.

Thanks again Ian, for the post you wrote ... and in directing me here!
