About Trufflesmd
Joined July 2016
Hi, I'm Sandra. My goal is to significantly add to my income through affiliate marketing. Having left the traditional corporate world, I am a self-employed Personal Trainer and have a Ebay store--pinkpoodoo. My store specializes in animal themed products and pet products, since that is where my passion is. However, I have not been able to make the income I have hoped for, so here I am! I am looking forward to having fun with this new endeavor, cause if you don't enjoy what you are doing, what's the point!

Hey, Sandra!
First of all, I'd like to thank you for the comment :) Second of all, congratulate on joining WA and I am now following you back! :)

I recently created a couple of posts outlining my success at WA, in case you need a boost of inspiration :) Is there anything I can help you with now? :)

Sandra, nice to hear from you. I look forward to getting to know you my new WA friend.

Is that your fluffy, white cutie up there. Lovely pooch.

You could certainly continue your passion with a critters website here so have great luck with one if you do.

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.

Now let us keep in touch.

Hi!

Great looking site and great content. I never really thought about how much I can learn about ferrets.

Great Niche!

I would recommend that you work on the following:
-Adjust the top menu that has "Black Footed Ferrets" on a second line. This will be a cleaner look and better for users
-I also recommend only listing a few key pages on the sidebar pages widget(Avoid any nested child pages in the menu)

These two changes will create a more professional feel and less crowded look.

Thank you for the suggestions. But I am not sure how to do what you suggest and what you mean by "adjust" the top menu. I find it hard to show what content I have on my site help visitors find articles and posts. Any help is appreciated.

Hi truffles
I'm so sorry I did not clear exactly what you asked me about te amazon button. Is not me who set up my website everything done by my coach, some one that i paid to help me out she is a WA member. She did everything all I do just write a reviews and post comments. Actually I did not hear from her since 4 weeks cause I was moving from Jersey to Florida when I get in touch with her i will ask her for you.

Good afternoon to you Sandra, my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. How is your eBay store doing for profit. I remember when I had a store there I barely made a profit from the drop-shipping sales. My friend, however, did very well, because he sold used stuff from garage sales and estate sales. Ebay was my first stab at online sales but I hated the fees.
Anyway by learning how to do all the basics from the Get Started Here section [top left green box] you will learn the three principles of earning affiliate income: learn how to choose a niche, build a niche website, and learn keyword research. Everything else is built around these three principles. You are already experienced with online sales, now you are expanding from a storefront with their own built-in traffic to the whole Internet of possible traffic - but you must do your own marketing. This is where keyword research will pay big dividends if done properly.
I look forward to working with you and wish you much success and prosperity in your journey!
Ken

Hi Ken,
My Ebay seems to be getting worse instead of better--not that it was great before--too much competition--too many people willing to sell things for too little! That's why I am trying this. But I have been working on this since July and have been following the lessons and implementing it all, but I have not made an affiliate sale or any income and I am paying almost $50 a month. I am starting to get concerned. I am really trying and hope that my efforts will start to pay off soon!

Hello Sandra,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link on the right (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016-2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hi again Sandra it’s a good idea (only if you want to) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.
Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing but.
But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.
Enjoy your day.
Robert

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my websites. My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live a month ago and the one on sleep apnea has been up for almost four months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.

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! :)
