About TrondVD
Joined October 2015
I'm a 38 year old fulltime worker and family man from Norway, new to this however hoping to learn as much as possible from this community and start earning some money on the side with affiliate marketing :-) It's probably going to be hard work, but I'm ready to try because if I don't, nothing will happen!

I'm married for 5 years and I have three children of 7, 6 and 4 years old. I currently work fulltime as a student adviser at a Norwegian University. I have a bachelors degree majoring in social anthropology and psychology. After that I ventured out to take a masters degree in international communication in Sydney, Australia. That was an awesome experience! I also met my wife just before going there, and she visited me, making it all perfect!

Anyway, here now. This is so great.
I cant believe it took me so long to find WA. The web is so full of possibilities, yet so many scams out there. I almost lost hope that it was possible to make money online. Joining WA today, I am convinced otherwise.
I just want to find a way to pay all bills, support my family and be able to work from home - all in due time. I have been struggling for a while now, and I can't rely on my day job to Get by. I messed some things up and got some credit card debt. Maybe in a year or some years, I can take my wife and three kids on a vacation for the summer, because right now I'm just fighting bills and trying to find a way. The community here appears to be just wonderful. Hoping this can be the right way. I truly need a change. What does it take to succeed? Time? Dedication? I am willing to try. All the best to everyone out there! Let's do it!
TrondVD's Goals 3
Money Goals
I would be happy to earn 10$, even 1$ doing this! Because if I can do that, it means I can earn 100 or even 1000 $, and if that's possible, sky is the limit!
I would be ecstatic if I earned 100 $ here, really! My real goal however is to earn 1000$ doing this. To me that would be like the first million.. :-)
I am willing to invest as much time and effort as needed to reach this goal, but I'm also a husband and a father of three kids, and I have a fulltime day job. So I realise this could take some time!
I'm very motivated, due to some personal debt and a desire to Explore new possibilities.

Nice goals Trond,

These are going to take you to a whole new level of being focused, motivated, and dedicated to what you are learning here at WA.

As you work through the training lessons, make sure to ask questions when you have them, and take action on what you are learning. You have a full community of friendly people behind you!

I look forward to working with you :)

Dear Trondvd, Love your profile! I too live in Europe (Berlin). I am also a Newbie and believe that to succeed you will need to take the time to learn how to do all of this and it will take dedication! I think putting the effort in will be worth it! Great luck on your new venture! And thanks for the follow!

Thank you Sheila! Yes I realise that this is no quick fix, it will take time and I know (by experience) that most likely I will bang my head against the wall a few times! Have you chosen your niche yet? Good luck to you as well!

Dear TrondVD,
I have and have already put together my first website (very basic) so far. My first website is postrelationshipadvice.com. I am on Course 2 and finishing up lesson 3. I am spending about 3 to 4 hours a day so far on training and website development. I'm actually a writer so that is the easier part for me. I am a bit technically challenged which is the harder part for me. I am motivated though to learn how to build and monetize websites and I appreciate your support!

That's great! For me it's somehow the other way around, not too bad at writing, but find it hard to get starting. The technical aspects I take quite easy. Maybe we can help eachother out. For now it's all tutorials and learning :)

Welcome Trond, to Wealthy Affiliates and thanks for accepting my invitation to check it out.

There's a lot to learn here, the best place to start would be the level 1 certification course. So start with the first lesson by clicking on the link below. Be sure to create a profile and add a picture, that way you'll get lots of help from all the peeps in WA. You'll find out how to do this in the getting started link above.

Sadly some people don't even get this far, for some unknown reason.

If you can do this, (i.e.) follow simple instructions, (implementing as you go), soon you will be on your way to making your first sale.

And don't forget that you can also access me for 1-on-1 support by leaving a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/affilicoach or by private message if you are a premium member.

There are a ton of other features you have access to right now, but they are explained in your main training linked above. Your #1 job right now is to get to lesson 1!

★ ★ ★ Access Your Bonuses! ★ ★ ★

I also wanted to let you know that if you join the premium membership in this 7 day window you'll get a TON of awesome stuff from me.

First off, you'll get a 59% discount ($19.95 for 1 month) on your membership. Twenty bucks for you first month of WA is an absolute steal.

☆ ☆ Bonus #1: Live Case Study 2 Part Webinar Series

Get access to a 2-Part-Series Live Case Study webinar. It's video series where a professional internet marketer creates a complete 'niche website'. All steps are included and thoroughly explained, including research, rank, content creation and monetization. Total length of the videos is 2+ hours

This will give you a broad overview of the type of site you will create on Wealthy Affiliate. I think it's always a good idea to know the direction you are headed before you start your journey.

Please feel free to ask questions in the community through live chat or the Getting started classroom above. Or as I mentioned before, hit me up anytime you want in WA.

Anyway, I know you'd be eager to have a browse around so I'll let you get your feet wet.

Best of luck, and don't forget you can always ask me for help!


Best,
Frank

Hey no problem Trond. :)

Hey Frank so I just rounded the first level of training and have to go Premium to proceed..unless of course I continue with the WA Affiliate Bootcamp..which leads me to one question.
Would you recommend going down that path (WA affiliate) or should I explore the niche website path first?
Is the Affiliate thing so saturated or are there so many good players out there that it is simply very hard to get good rankings?
What would you do if you started out now?
Appreciate your answers, and remember if I go Premium you will get paid as I used your link to sign up to WA ;)
