Hi Trevor

I'm just wondering what has happened to this fine gentleman, since I haven't bumped in you lately here on WA?

[naughty grin and twinkle in eyes] Did you ride that lovely horse of yours and by mistake went over the edge of the earth and fell off? ;-) LOL!

You know we're only a PM away, don't you? ;-)

Look well after yourself and we're looking forward to see you again soon, Trevor!

A little about me. Airplanes were my life for 50 years most of the time I had two. An open cockpit and single engine high performance Cessna or Mooney. As far as motorcycles had a Harley V Rod from the time they first came on the market. Belong to the Iron Butt Society. Jackson Florida to San Diego California in 48 hours. Visit my profile to learn why I no longer fly.

Good luck with your internet enterprise.

Hi Trev, nice to hear from you. I look forward to getting to know you my new WA friend. Sorry about the lengthy delay in responding but I am a bit slow at the moment. Trying to do too many things at once.

Seven cats hey. I thought 4 was activity enough. Our neighbours though, now have 5 and 2 dogs. He was in the marines and later the Royal Australian Airforce. Maybe that's why you are so similar to them.

I have left you a comment on your 'Don't let them get fat' article.

If you have time I would love it if you visited one of my websites and left a comment on a post, any one will do. The site addresses are workingonthewildside.com & fantasy-sci-fi-vision.com.

Keep working hard, having 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.

Now let us keep in touch.

Ciao
Helen

I have read both of your websites. You can start introducing WA within a year of membership! It amazes a lot.
Another I really appreciate you that you can write longer articles overtime. To a beginner like me, I take couple days to work on an article since I am not get used to writing. I did research, jotted down the notes, rephrased what I learnt and put on the posting, and then proof-read. The whole process took me a while.

Hello Trevor and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 390+ blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Enjoy your day.

Good evening Trevor,

I am also a cat lover but as there is place enough on my Spanish farm I also have a dog. I have 3 cats and one dog and Michael, who emigrated last year from the US came with his belongings, Thunderbird, Victory, and his cat Shugar.
I always say this to new people I meet here. In case you need a good source for writing have a look at my WA post on the Spanish post and the world library, amazing things can be found there.
Thank you for the follow and good luck.

Regards, Taetske

Hi Trevor,

Thank you for following me.

It must have been great being a military flying instructor.

I am kicking myself now because I had the opportunity to learn commercial flying back in the 90's at Jadakot airport in Perth. Maybe WA will get me there cause it is way too expensive now.

You have many great mentors in here and you will never stop learning and be having fun at the same time.

I wish you all the best and it's great to meet you.

Cheers,

Brad

Hi Trevor,

Brad here again. I just wanted to followup with a specific example of an advanced strategy you can take advantage of here at Wealthy Affiliate that is not possible anywhere else.

A somewhat little known fact about Wealthy Affiliate is that the internal blog system here ranks highly in Google. If you are in your profile page reading this, then you should see a "My Blog" link at the top of the page. Go there and simply click on the big blue "Create a new blog" button to create your first blog post.

This is different from your own free blogs that you will create here using SiteRubix. The most well known aspect of the My Blog feature is that all your followers within Wealthy Affiliate will be notified of your new posts. That is how most people think about it and how they use it.

However, with the My Blog feature the blog posts you create show up directly on http://my.wealthyaffiliate.com. The posts are accessible there by anyone using Google (no need for them to be a WA member). According to the backlink checker I use, http://my.wealthyaffiliate.com has over 35,000 backlinks pointing to it from other websites. Type site:my.wealthyaffiliate.com into Google and you will find it has over 400,000+ pages indexed in Google. This makes it an authority site and gives it ranking power in Google.

Even better, when non-members access your WA blog posts from google you automatically get credit if they signup for Wealthy Affiliate (e.g. your WA cookie gets set even without your affiliate link, you get credit based on the fact that they visited your WA blog post).

And it gets even better. When non-members visit your WA "My Blog" posts, if they click on a link on that page it automatically opens a signup form for Wealthy Affiliate, where you get credit for that referral in the WA affiliate program. Even if they don't click on a link, that signup form pops up after 15 or 20 seconds of arriving on that page. Outside visitors can either signup or close the popup and continue reading your blog post. You can see how this works by creating your own WA blog post and visiting that page in a browser where you are not logged in to WA.

There is no other program out there that allows you to write posts directly on their authority site and make commissions from those posts. In your other promotions on your own blogs you can link to your My Blog posts without using your affiliate link, since you get credit anyway. There can be various advantages to this, as you will learn in later training here at WA.

The only caveat to this strategy is your My Blog posts should be helpful to the other WA members. You can't blog about dog training for instance, it should be about affiliate marketing, blogging and online business topics.

However, since it is all optimized to support you in making money from the WA affiliate program, this isn't really a downside. Just use your SiteRubix niche sites to promote niche topics like dog training, and use your WA Blog as (one way) to promote the WA affiliate program. For example, you could use one of your free Site Rubix sites for a favorite niche topic, and one for an online business related niche to promote the WA affiliate program.

Here is a link that explains more about how to make the most of this strategy:
Here is the next step in that training that shows how one WA Blog post is ranking in Google: Hope that helps!

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! :)

Hi Trevor,

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.

Beyond giving you everything you need to succeed as an affiliate in your area of interest, 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. To learn more, click the black "Affiliate Bootcamp" button at the top left of this page.

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 will follow up with you in a few days to give you a concrete example of an excellent advanced strategy that is possible here at Wealthy Affiliate. This is a strategy that is simply not possible anywhere else (check this page for that update in a few days).

In the meantime, I would suggest you take the following 3 steps:

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. Just click on the green "Get Started Here" button on the top left side of the page.

The fastest way to get your questions answered 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!

Brad
