About Vmainridge
Joined May 2015
Hello, my name is Valerie.
I have been in the IT industry for over 18 years. I have done a lot of technical training and have run entire business networks. I just relocated to a new area and I am looking for a career change. I would like to try something different and get out of the "rat race" for a while.

Since I already have a basic understanding of web sites and enjoy building them, why not combine that with something I love and start my own site and make an income in the online world.

I enjoy biking, strength training, and self-defense training.

I am excited to join this community and I am looking forward to learning all that I can about internet marketing.

My website is on Fitness and Health.

I noticed the popup box first time the page loads. Is that a plugin? Do you get results from it?
Bye

vmainridge Premium
Yes, it is a Word Press plugin called Yeloni Exit Popup. It is free for the basic features but you can pay for more features. I'm just using the free basic version.

OK, I am still in two minds on success, given that Kyle does not use subscription popup on his site. Will try it both ways. Thx.

Do you think you will learn anything from me?
Anyway thank you for the follow and i will do likewise.

So I get to follow an expert. Your site contains a lot of useful information (passed it to my wife). Good to know I have the right blender, along with a juicer, and a bullet for snacks, in multiple daily use. Anything with ginger and tumeric (fresh) usually ends up perfect. My exercise regimen is mostly upper body, although i have a highly developed skill of watching others exercise. Shall be watching for further good stuff. Way to go. Larry

Marith, That's awesome. I haven't had a lot of traffic for G+ yet, but then again my site is only 1.5 months old. I read one of your blogs about how you use social media. I am already doing pretty well with Pintrest, but I haven't thrown my hat in the ring with Facebook. All in due-time!

Valerie, 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 Valerie.
