About Wealthysage
Joined June 2018
I'm Will, a 71-year old retired mechanical engineer living in Manchester, England, a proud father to two lovely daughters and doting grandfather to four handsome young grandsons, aged between 2 years and 13 years.

The reason for me being here at Wealthy Affiliate is the desire to supplement my retirement income by learning Internet Marketing skills and applying them to generate business online.

My hobby is photography and, in particular, I enjoy curating feature hubs on Instagram, where I am @viewsightandmind and, more recently, @thewealthysage. You can learn more about me and my hobby on the blog article “Meet the Wealthy Sage” across on my website:
• www.thewealthysage.com .

And, finally, greetings all, I'm very pleased to be here and am very much looking forward to meeting many new friends in the Wealthy Affiliate community. My initial task, apart from the educational aspect, is to set up and develop my online brand of “the Wealthy Sage" in the make money online niche.

Cheers,
Will

Hello Will, And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep referring to the training.
If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 430+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me PM anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.

You're very welcome, Will and thank you very much for your kind words about WA. How are you doing with the Get Started Here lessons? Have you chosen a URL, yet?
Reply
wealthysage Premium
So sorry for time taken in reply to your question. Whilst I understand what a URL is I don’t know what you mean by choosing one? My progress is slow at the moment as I’m engaged in completing an eMail marketing course I enrolled on before finding WA.
Reply
Keisi Premium
No problem here, Will. Your URL is your domain name. When you start to build your website is when you will need that domain name. No pressure. When you get a round tuit.
Reply
wealthysage Premium
Many thx Casey and given the context you’ve provided I can understand what you meant now and will be looking out for that in training.

In the meantime, I have registered my domain in order to reserve the name, it’s “the Wealthy Sage”!
Reply
Keisi Premium
You're very welcome, Will and good thinking to register your domain name now. That way you don't run the chance that someone else will get it before you are ready to build your website. Good name choice, short and in your niche. Easy to expand for your keywords. Good job. Keep up the great work!

Best regards,

Keisi.

WOW, you are thinking ahead. Any day of the week there are millions of people doing the same as what we are doing so when we come up with a great idea, any of our competition could claim something we waited too long to claim!

Hey there Will and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! My name is Karissa, I am a member of Wealthy Affiliate, and I am here to help you along the way. If you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, please let me know.

As a new member here, you should check out the Online Entrepreneur Certification getting started course (Level 1). This is a task based course that will help you take action on daily tasks, which will lead to you building web assets. Here is the link that you will see within your main menu labeled "Getting Started" HOW TO CLAIM YOUR BONUS

If you join Premium within the first 7 days, here are some bonuses that you will be given:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)
(2) You are going to get personal and private access to Kyle (the co-founder)! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, he will be there and he is a BIG help.
(3) You will also get the "Diamond Traffic Bonus"

But only if you join in your first 7 days (for action takers ready to get started). You don't have to go Premium, so don't feel pressured.

Anyway, I thought I would just introduce myself and if you have any questions going forward, let me know :) It is AWESOME to have you as part of the community here at WA!

Your friend,
Karissa

wealthysage Premium
Hi Karissa,

That's a fabulous welcome, I'm most grateful indeed.

It's also kind of you to explain the certification and bonus plans to me, I'll need some time to digest it all.

The reminder on the benefits of the upgrade to Premium is also appreciated. I prefer an annual plan if one is available?

Cheers,
Will
Reply
Kksb0711 Premium
Absolutely! The yearly premium membership is $359/year.. less than $1 a day:)
Reply
wealthysage Premium
Thx again Karissa, and good day to you. In terms of the annual membership, I'm assuming I can upgrade to Premium via annual membership at any time?
Reply
Kksb0711 Premium
Yes you can. You can just click the red button up on there left that says “Go Yearly & Save.”
Reply
wealthysage Premium
Hi Karissa,

It's not giving me the choice for annual membership, perhaps I have to wait until the 1st month discount offer has expired?
Reply
Kksb0711 Premium
Hmm, I guess so. I thought the discount was just for the first week. What does it say when you click on the "Go Yearly & Save" button?
Reply
wealthysage Premium
Kyle provided me link that worked, Ty for your help and encouragement :)
Reply
wealthysage Premium
Many thx again Karissa. Kyle has been reaching out to me since day 1, for which I'm most grateful, and I'm looking forward to finding out more about the "Diamond Traffic Bonus". I know about my affiliate link but I don't yet know how to drive traffic :)
