About VivBeck
Joined December 2016
Hello, it's great to meet you.

My name is Viv, a teacher from Illinois. I love books, my cats, and being part of professional development. It's so cliche, it makes me cringe.

But, very true. (Sigh...)

My brain is my toy box and I need to keep filling it up. (Geek) So, after 27 years of teaching, I decided to expand my influence outside the walls of my classroom.

As of yet, I'm not sure how I will direct my creative energy online. I have some ideas rolling around in head, and I have some experience with Wordpress and SEO,..

BUT...

I've come to learn I know just enough to become my own worst hazard. Because i see the potential of reaching beyond the classroom, I keep pushing forward to learn new skills to turn that around.

My main purpose for joining WA is because I know I have the shiny object syndrome. Here at WA everyone is here for a shared purpose and I'm looking forward for a meaning progression of learning.

Follow me, and hopefully our paths will cross sooner rather than later!

Have a glorious day!,

Viv

Hello Viv and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you will no doubt have come to realise that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck then can I suggest you browse some of the 280+ blogs I have published within WA.

You have decided to follow me so thank you for the follow and I will follow you as well.
Enjoy your day.

No probs Viv and with your previous experience the initial training should have been a breeze.
You get stuck and you want the personal touch you send me a PM and I will do my best to point you in the right direction.
Now I'm off home to make myself some eats.
maybe catch you later.

Viv, 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 Viv.

Hello, my name is Dana and I'm a newbee. I believe this training could be a good fit for me. I lost over $3,000 in one my own top tier business two years ago, but I've done my homework in researching WA couldn't find anything negative. Would have been awesome if I found WA then.

VivBeck Premium
Hello, Dana, sorry to about the financial loss you experienced. Believe it or not, you are not alone. Jumping into the online market place can be a challenge.

I can empathize with you!!!

It seems like a great opportunity because of the low barrier of entry, but often times we forget that despite the easy entry, there is soooo much education necessary to make a go of it.

(I'm saying this because this was my experience and the experience of many others I know :)

Wealthy Affiliate is a training program with information that's invaluable. It fills the void, providing education needed to create a solid foundation for online marketing success. The team does a great job breaking necessary skills and helpful tips down into bite sized pieces for easy consumption and clarity.

Regardless of your experience with site building and marketing, this community is totally worth the time and attention. My suggestion to you is to explore the community and get active because everyone is extremely helpful. Dive into the trainings too.

I'm glad to hear you heard lots of good stuff about WA. Now, it's time to see if it's a fit for you. Welcome!!! If you have any questions be sure to ask, and I wish you great success in your endeavors!

Thanks Viv. I've been a medical transcriptionist for over a decade, and at 47 I need and want to spend more time with my family. Thanks a bunch. Now I'm going back to lesson 1 and then peruse the website and get to know more members.

My daughter currently lives in the Peoria area.
As far as the weather, we've had a beautiful first snow fall on Sunday. Forecast for the rest of week... chilly with a chance of snow showers Saturday. Beyond that, I'm hearing it will be a white Christmas. :-)

Where are you traveling from?

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! :)
Reply
VivBeck Premium
Hey Steve, thanks for touching base. I decided the niche I'm going for right now is far more simplistic than what I really want to, but I think it's a manageable place to start.

Tomorrow I'll do the keyword research so I can get those pages set up on ththe site.

Here's my question...

Am I wasting my time creating a very specific site that's unrelated to my bigger vision? In my mind I'd like to experience the process, call it a dress reversal if you will, for the real thing.

Looking forward to your response.

Hey Viv and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

My name is Steve and I'm the owner of IveTriedThat. You signed up through me and I thought I'd tell you a little about myself. I joined Wealthy Affiliate back in 2009, over 7 years ago. I was looking to learn how to supplement my income through Internet Marketing and what I've found was so much more.

By 2010, I was working full-time from home. These days, ALL of my income comes from my ventures online. In fact, my wife just recently quit her job to start her own business as well. Internet Marketing and Wealthy Affiliate have provided us with amazing opportunities (we've bought a house, get to travel the world, and best of all, no longer spend time "going to work") and I'm incredibly thankful to the training, tools, and support here that made it all possible. :)

I'd love for you to see the same level of success. So, if you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, do not hesitate to get in touch with me. I am here to help!

To get started, you should add a short description and upload a picture. Wealthy Affiliate is a community and having a profile and a picture will really help get you acquainted here.

Anyways, thought I would just introduce myself. If there's anything I can do for you Viv, just let me know!

Cheers!

Steve

Steve, thanks for the response. I probably hit the wrong button.

And I appreciate the extensive post with insights to the keyword tool. Very cool! Next step, set up that account.

I'll definitely touch base after I do some research.
