Hi, I'm Ty Johnson. I'm a 35 year old business owner and internet marketer. My wife and I own a bottled water business which she runs. I spend my days building my Internet Marketing business.

Before I owned a business I was a salesman in the home improvement industry which I made a decent living at but still had to call someone boss, before that I was a satellite technician which is a nice way of saying if you ordered satellite I was one of the people that would come and install the system at your home.

Before that I was a plumber in new construction, I think it's safe to say I hated plumbing and satellite installation but I loved sales! I guess I was a natural at it. I made my first sale not 10 days after taking the job and being as I spent the first 6 days in training it impressed everyone, including me.

I made over $900 for that sale in about an hour in the middle of 2010 when the economy was very bad, I have been hooked on sales ever since.

I joined Wealthy Affiliate on black Friday when they had a 1 month for $1 trial and I have learned so much since then. I have been able to build a few different websites and my income from Internet Marketing is growing all the time.

I really liked the Flexibility 3 and I am sure you got a lot of questions. The guide was easy to follow. Thanks. I would like my sidebar to show all my posts (like I had before. I want to remove the comments and some other sidebar listing. It was recommended that I remove these. I only will use the post list, archives, and categories. Will you tell me how to do this?

Ty! I need your help please. I am ready to set up my website (Rubix) but I want to install the Flexability 3 that you did a training on. However when I get to the install part of the website build; that theme is not featured in the group that we get to choose from so I don't understand how to install it at that point? The setup won't allow me to go any further without installing a theme right here for my site. So, how do I get the name of that theme installed into the blank space provided right here??? I am tied up here until I get this figured out and I really need to get moving; I am about to lose my home and I really need to make some money now. Thanks

I saw your WordPress for Beginners and it is great! Thank you so much. I am an experienced website coder/designer but know nothing about how WP operates - never worked with it before. Your writing has given me insight to how WP works.

Hello again, Ty. Had to take some time to go look at your sites today. you most certainly have some great value you are providing. I like the feel of the review site and think the 'smogrettes' is a phenomenal idea. Looks like you have created a good forum for the give and take of comments. I like it. Was that a plugin for your comment string?

Well hope the weather is treating you well. I'm going to my site to do some clean up based on your good feedback and suggestions.

Thanks much.

Linda

Ty Johnson Premium
I don't even own Smogrettes anymore. I built that site with no premium stuff at all, only free theme and plugins.

Here's the new one I own..well two of them actually http://ecigjournal.org/ and http://esmokereport.com/

These both utilize premium themes and plugins and look much more professional.

Let me know if you need anything else.

Hell Ty. Just bee bopping around a bit. Went in and made some adjustments based on your very reasonable and most appreciated feedback. Been a bit out of the loop this past two weeks. My bro-in-law just received a diagnosis for cancer and so I have been striving to be available for him and my sister.

may take a while to be consistent again, but I love what I am doing and want to be successful so I'm going to keep at this! Thank you for your support!

Hello Ty!. I have found you through your blog about all of us being farmers. I like to drop into a person's profile and get to know them. I appreciate your profile pics and getting to see the ;loves of your life'. What a lovely family!

I'm including you in my circle now. I found some of the blogs I have been able to read this morning oozing value! "-) Love the one on your WA story and the suggestions in Get Your Site Reviewed. Thanks for taking the time to create these.

I hope your continued success brings that heart felt desire to life, reaching out to the children of the your home country who have no home. It is heart-breaking to hear such stories.

I intend t o look at your training as I have been sensitive to the online reputation thing but don't know too much about it.

Keep up the good work. You are appreciated!

Thank you Linda, that's very kind of you to say. I'm not from the Philippines though my wife is. We do live here tho and it is very hard to see those kids and not feel something.

Ty, could use some advice about the flexibility3 theme. Having trouble wrapping my head around the pages versus blog roll. Have a collection of ebooks that I wanted to sell on my site. But these are in my possesion, not an affiliate link, How is it possible to have continual pages that you can add different graphics to the right sidebar. Or do I need a blog roll ? just having trouble wrapping my head around the differences. The site is,,, Workfromhome101.net take alook and advise if you have time. Just trying to figure out how to advertise the books for each subject matter. Have books in ,twitter, facebook, affiliate marketing, etc,etc,

No need to apologize I'm happy to help. I know how it is trying to do everything fast with the worlds economy it can be really tough trying to make ends meat. Just keep following the lessons and let your desire to make it fast drive you to work hard, just don't cut corners it's very important to learn and do everything right so that your work is not wasted.

Hi Ty, read most of your trainings and I am learning a lot, been very helpful. New to WA (well, not really new because I am a chronic starter. ) I have not seen any success on my internet endeavors yet but I am persistent and hoping someday I will see a more light and reach that first goal.
Reply
Ty Johnson Premium
I'm really happy that my efforts are helping you. I appreciate hearing the feedback very much. If I may make a suggestion, I see a lot of people starting and stopping and changing directions. Pick one thing and stick with it for as long as it takes. Build a site and do article marking and social marketing, build Squidoo lenses make videos or whatever and just keep building it and promoting it.

Getting sidetracked is probably about the worth thing you can do.

You're welcome, I am just glad that people are finding my information helpful.

I wanted to ask you if you have heard about my little Facebook group called Writers Secret Society. The group is in place to give people a place to share their websites, or articles with other people who will read it and if they like it they will share and or comment.

It kind of gets the social ball rolling, and can make a big difference in your SERPs ranking.

There is no promoting to other members or by other members, just sharing and making friends.

Anyone is more than welcome to come join us, just go to the groups page and ask to join.

OK so what we all need is ranked in the search engines, what we need to do then is to get talk, likes tweets and social bookmarks right. well if you are interested in joining a small group of people that will make comments, likes, tweets, +1s and social bookmark etc, on SA articles for you every time you post a new article visit my SA profile http://www.streetarticles.com/about/ty-johnson/11190 and join my tribe. Every one in my tribe has agreed to help out, as long as you are returning the favor of course. This is something that will benefit all of us and help each of us be able to rank higher faster If you join my tribe I will assume that you are agreed to help out as well and I will start to make comments on your article as well as socially book mark with reddit, digg & in some cases stumble upon. I will also like you on FB +1 you on Google and tweet your article as well. Of course you will not be able to take time for every single post from every single person but if you log in for 10 or 15 min or whatever you can spare every day and just get who u can in that time, this will be a huge help, Remember the more you help the more people will do for you... You will want to join other people in my tribe so they will join yours as well.

Hi Ty,
Yes getting your site up and running is rather challenging and frustrating isn't it! however learning about website construction is very valuable. It took me awhile to figure out widgets etc.. There are great resources on the web if you are having trouble figuring out some specific html code - just google them. www.w3schools.com is one of the best.
