About Valie

Hi, my name is Viljoen vd Merwe, but most people call me Valie. I live in South Africa in the orange Free state and I am 25 years old. I got started with Affiliate marketing at the end of 2014.

I created a couple of websites 2 years ago and they are now earning me a full-time income. Only after 2 years, I realized that the business model that Wealthy Affiliate teaches works and will earn you a long term income.

My goals are now a bit bigger than before and there are still a lot that I need to learn about Affiliate Marketing.

Let me know if you need any help with your endeavors by sending me a PM.

Cheers

Hi Valie,

I tried the clickbank link generated by click "promote" but the end of the sales page shows "affiliate=none".

I'm not entire new to CB and it never happened before. Something has changed?

Hi Valie,
Pls did u earn anything while using a subdomain. Started a niche on plates. What u think?
Reply

Hi there

I did and it is possible, but only with pay per click where I pay for traffic. Organic search is another story. There it is better to have only the domain.

Hi Vince

I am currently struggling with a chronic condition known as Bronchiectasis and the modern medical world says that the damage in the lungs are not curable.

I like to do water fasts to clean out my system of toxins and also to live a toxic free lifestyle. You should send me the url of your blog, so that I can read some of your material :)

Hi Valie - sorry to hear of this. This is difficult to treat as so many possible causes. Is it possible to email me more details & if acceptable to you I will aim to pinpoint the cause/s & send a personal formula - (no charge) - which I had verified by Marcel Vogel at his PRI Research labs in San Jose when he invited me into his home to take me to his labs to check on my use of his quartz crystal techniques & all my applications were verified. Could you email me please,.............. vincejhalpin@gmail.com I hope I can help Best wishes Vince

Hi Valie,long time I hope you still enjoying facilitating the training.Just 2 ques Valie,for me to introduce any referrals to WA do I have to be a premium member? secondly how do I sign them in for them to be known that they joined under me?Tnxx
Reply
Valie Premium
Hi Nokuphiwa. I still have 3 modules to do, but I am almost there. You do not need to be a premium member, but you will earn 50% more if you are. Below is a link that explains it in more detail. If you want your referrals to know that you are their referral, then you can setup messages that you will automatically send them when they join.

The link that I provided is the first phase of bootcamp which is going to introduce you to the aspects of how you will be making money with by promoting WA :)

Viljoen, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Viljoen.

Subo, thanks for the follow. Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. You have just found the right place to learn all there is to know about this online marketing community and how to build a highly successful business.
Just remember, this is a marathon race, not a short sprint.
So just have in mind that this online business success is not only going to take a lot of hard work from you but also dedication and plenty of time as you cannot become successful in a day or two.
Don't be in a hurry for success. Just do things right the first time around and success will meet you the harder you work.
Follow Kyle's videos and instructions and if you get stuck....well.......that is what the community is for! Just ask and you will receive everyone’s help each other out because we all care!

The second video does not look impressive. However, her tips are on point and well worth noting!

This should help you in creating your "authority" site!

Hi neoline.

I have watched both videos and I see there is a couple of things missing. I think I am going to spend more time to my about me page.

Hey Viljoen, how are things going? Just wanted to pop by as I noticed that you had set-up your profile here at WA and say hi and offer my help if there is any confusion.

WA is going to be the best vehicle for your success and freedom man. It will take time to build up to that, but if you go at it with passion and persistence, you can make this happen. If I can do it, anyone can.

If you have any questions or need any help, just let me know.

Hi Nathaniel

I am doing great. I have my website up and running. Here it is insomniahacker.com . What do you think??
Reply
nathaniell Premium
It's looking awesome. You are really making progress and following the training closely.

My #1 concern right now is that there are so many screenshots from Amazon on the reviews. I don't know if it will get you into trouble, but I personally wouldn't do it.

I might use your own star rating system and put the stars at the top: https://wordpress.org/plugins/rating-widget/

But other than that, content, keywords, and layout look great! Oh, and using the product image from Amazon is totally fine.
Reply
Valie Premium
Thanks again for your input Nathaniel. Much appreciated.
Reply
Valie Premium
Hi Nathaniel. Sorry for bothering AGAIN LOL.

I installed the rating widget and it works fine on my blog. What benefits will it give my website?

Can it improve rankings in Google because of user engagement?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Absolutely! The rating widget itself will not boost rank, but if you get more people to comment, interact, etc you will see a boost in rank. It might also show stars in the search engines which can help with click throughs, but I can't remember if this particular plugin does that.

I do suggest that you start out with the Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1) course. Work your way through this training and take action on the lesson tasks. This is a foundational course that will get you building valuable online assets in just your first few days.

Anyways, I hope to see more of you in the coming days here at WA! :)

Hi Viljoen, Nathaniell here. Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

I'm glad to see you've signed up and are ready to get started.

Before you start making money, there are just two things you need to know.

More buddies means more support. More support means more success.

★ ★ ★ How To Access Your Exclusive 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.

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. This is available to all members. But I've lined up some other things which are a bit more exclusive.


☆ ☆ Bonus #1: Live Case Study 3 Part Webinar Series

Get access to a 3-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. Total length of the videos is about 3 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.


☆ ☆ Bonus #2: Exclusive Look at The Top 5 Newbie Mistakes And How To Fix Them

Some questions get asked over and over again. It's very likely you have these same questions.

This is a two-part bonus. It includes an exclusive video not available to other WA members where I create a website EXACTLY how the training teaches you. Many new members don't follow the instructions properly and can't get their sites to work. Watch this video first, and you'll be up and running in 20 minutes with your own .com hosted here on WA.

I have also included 5 newbie website design and setup tips. These are super easy ways to turn your site from a basic Wordpress install into a streamlined canvas ready for action, and ready to impress your traffic.

This means you will be able to bypass these typical mistakes, get started faster, and on the right foot. This is an exciting time - you are building the foundations of a profitable online business, and I want to help you get started as quickly and smoothly as possible.
