About Villaginger
Joined November 2018
I am just learning about the online business opportunities that are available.
I work at a "normal" 7 am to 4:30 pm M-F office job that also extends into my weekends and evening hours, and for all that I make maybe 650. a week with no benefits or sick days or vacation time.
I am also studying Graphic Design, because I am a creative person.
Having said all that, I am looking for a better way, but have limited funds, I mean VERY limited funds!
Still I am a good study and am willing to learn!

How are you doing? I just wanted to say thank you for the FB and Twitter sharing. Greatly appreciated and I do the same every time I see you post something new. Hoping that this will give us both a wider reach. Forever forward and keep up the great work!

Not to be a buzzkill or anything, but just wanted to share that I am becoming discouraged. I joined in November 2018 and still am not showing any sales, even my Google Adsense only shows .81 cents. I am truly thinking about leaving WA.
Any advice would help here...?
My posts are not allowed to be shared on Facebook, I have been paying for ads on Google, etc etc

Hi - you may have joined in November, but you didn't build your website until February, so it has only been up and running for 2 months. (I have a near-photographic memory, so I remembered the name of it).

This is very early days, it takes a minimum of 3 months, and more realistically 6 months before you can expect to see sales and traffic.

Plus, you only have 13 posts on it. You need to be adding on a consistent basis, preferably two or three per week. You can't be seen as an authority until you have at least 30 to 40 posts.

There are several things to look at when you’re doing an evaluation of your business. What is your niche? How many posts have you written? How far along are you in the training? What’s your writing schedule? Are you posting long form content? Are the posts specific enough to your niche? Are you requesting comments immediately after publishing? How many comments does each post have? What kind of keyword research are you doing for each post? Do you have the keyword in the title, url, and first paragraph? Are you ranking for any of your focus keywords prior to attempting paid ads? What visuals have you added? Are you sharing to social media? Is your website easy to navigate? Are you using calls to action in your content?

Success is measured from all these elements put together. This doesn’t mean a newbie should have everything al together all at once right out of the gate. Of course not. There’s a growth process. You build towards a more complete website with every lesson in the training that you complete.

The absolute #1 key to success here at WA is consistent, quality content creation and not giving up. That’s all Google is looking for at the end of the day.

Thank you Diane,
This is why I posted the question, I really needed the support and tips, getting discouraged, then I remembered that we have a great community here so why not reach out.
I will take your advice and keep on trucking! I just don't have a lot of time to come up with content as I am working a job for about 50 to 56 hours a week.
Thank you for your great advice as always you come through with help,
Virginia

Hi Eric thank you for the questions to reflect upon!
I will continue, sometimes it is a bit overwhelming. I am on level 5 of the training.

Hi Ginger, and don't worry, you're not a buzzkill, lol.
I agree with Diane and Eric. It'll take you longer than you're thinking so hang in there. Think of the 3 P's: persistence, patience, and perseverance. The ones that give up under 6 months probably would have seen success in the 7th month!
I'm in a really competitive niche and had been working hard for a year before seeing anything. But I'm stubborn, lol.
It'll come! Just try to post consistently, at least 3 times a week, ok.
Cheers,
Suzanne

Hang in there...There are many factors that contribute to the success of your site. First and foremost is quality content (a lot of it). Second is time. Build that authority and keep that content coming. Engage your audience.

If your site has only been live for 2 months, that's not nearly long enough. Expect a 6 month to 1 year investment before you see true growth.

Ya that’s the hard part, eh? Find those low hanging fruit keywords and do reviews or best of’s, and that’ll help with ranking.

I to have a degree in web and Graphic design, which I truly love doing. I am having issues with my laptop and cannot download my Adobe CS4 software suite. I really miss being able to make my own graphics and my site is suffering also because I could make my website look so much better. Thanks Sruffey

Villaginger Premium
Sruffey, you may have to upgrade the laptop, maybe you don't have enough storage or ram. Also Adobe has come a long way since Cs4! Consider upgrading to Adobe Creative Cloud.

I just got my degree in 2015 and I don't want to have to learn anything else. I can do anything I want to do on CS4 and if I upgraded to cloud I would have to learn how to use it. The training here is enough education to learn for now. I have used a trial on Photoshop and I just like what I know how to use already. Thanks for the reply and please like my comments. Thanks Sruffey

Hello Virginia:

I thought it would be good to add you to my network. I'm so happy to have become a member of WA. I haven't been doing this long but I became a premium member before my free week was up. It was the best thing I ever did.

I'm also on a limited budget. On permanent disability. I couldn't do a full year member ship so I went monthly. I recommend going through the web training first. Then the bootcamp. Don't jump around either. But then again you'll do fine.

Welcome to WA and Premium;

You will find at WA a huge amount of information that it is almost overwhelming. Sometimes the first impression is to think, "I can't do this!"

But you can! The great thing about this site is there is step-by-step information about how to go from zero to having a wonderful website which you can monetize into a wealth-producing asset you could sell or pass on to your kids.

There is also a wonderful community here that can help you to really accomplish great things.

We are not in competition here either so there are always great people ready, willing, and able to help if you get stuck.

Many other "opportunities" and certainly scams out there would have everybody promoting the same thing so you are in competition with everyone else! - Not nice.

I am hopeful you will give this opportunity a serious try and I am sure you will be pleased with the results.

Dave.

Hi Villaginger! I just wanted to take a moment to welcome and congratulate you on your decision to upgrade your membership to premium status with WA. I did the same several weeks ago and I can truthfully say that I have not had any regrets. I came to WA as a total "newbie" with no experience at all with the world of affiliate marketing. Since that time, I have been able to create my website, have the site ranked by Google and am starting to see some traffic to my site. Never thought I could do this at the age of 64. Just goes to show that if someone like me can have these achievements, then there is no doubt that you can do the same. The support you will receive here is totally amazing and there is a wealth of knowledge just for the asking. Many affiliates are very eager to help and provide encouragement. I wish you much success in your endeavors!

Hi! Welcome to WA Premium!! You will not regret your decision to go Premium!! The information available here is never ending!! And the training is incredible, and you won’t find anything like it, anywhere else!! Take it ALL in!!

Follow the training! I cannot stress this enough. Do not skip around. Do the lessons in the order in which they are. As well as the tasks that follow each of those lessons. I often jumped ahead in training, on my own, to only later really regret it. Take my word for it, it’s not worth it.

Go at your pace. Slow and steady is my new rule. You'll find you can't wait to learn more in the following days. You’ll want to learn more!! It ignites a new passion within you. It did me! Gave me back my purpose for living! There were a few lessons that I had to watch twice. If that's what you have to do, do it!

And soon you will have yourself an awesome website. Amazing direction, and the tools that you need to succeed in whatever it is you want to do!

You CAN do this!!

Be awesome! Be amazing!! And be successful!!!
