At some point in our lives we are all the "new person". And WA is no different. I know when I am new to anything I tend to be a bit shy. But I find if someone talks to me and introduces me to other people I am able to relax a bit and feel at home. I love the Wealthy Affiliate community and almost feel like it isn't a community at all but rather a family. And I love my family here. So I wanted to share with you some of the steps you can take daily to help welcome some of the new people here on W
I use social sites, like twitter, as a way of building relationships with others. And I have several different kinds of followers. I have friends from here at WA, friends from Squidoo, Hubpages and other sites I belong to. And I have friends from all over the world. Many of the people I am connected with are successful affiliates. I follow their posts because I can learn from them. Many people I follow are people who are struggling to find success online. I following these peoples so I can help
Even though I have been here at Wealthy Affiliate for a few years, my niche wasn't in "making money online." I had always heard that because of the high competition it would be difficult to make money in this niche. But last year when Kyle started the affiliate boot camp, I decided to go ahead and go through the training. My thinking was that since I've been doing affiliate marketing for a while, it would be a good extra niche and it could also bring in some extra income. Plus it would give me
This morning I was on my Paypal account and found that they made all sorts of new changes in the way you view your account. I just didn't like the change. The fonts were just too big for me, so I ended up switching back to the classic view. I'm sitting here thinking that I'm turning into one of those people who hates change. LOL. But I'm happier with the classic view. Did anyone else do the same thing?
Yesterday I got a check in the mail for $48.00. It was from a company I hadn't promoted in over 5 years. I was wondering how they even found my link and I realized that I still have an old Blogspot site out there from when I was doing MLM. Anyhow, it looks like that site is still getting traffic. This is just a reminder to me to not remove or delete any of my old content. I was thinking about deleting some of my old Hubpages and Squidoo pages. But I think I will keep them all up.
I just had to share this... I was looking as some of the stats for my Midlife Madness Blog and had to laugh when I saw that someone found my website by typing in "my wife wants me to wear dresses and grow breasts" LOL! I have no idea why Google would send them to my site as I have nothing about cross dressing on my site...but I guess I wont complain about the free traffic...:)
I wanted to take a moment and apologize to my friends and fellow marketers for not being active lately. I am still here however my home life has made it difficult to get here as much as I would like to. Some of you may know that I am in the process of ending a 24 year marriage and my world has literally been totally thrown out of routine. I have been house hunting and working on some much needed healing time and working through some personal issues. Since my time right now is so limited, I have
When people ask me about affiliate marketing and how long it will take them to start making money. I tell them it really depends on them and the effort they are willing to make in order to be successful. You need to be willing to invest in learning the skills you need, developing those skills, and then doing the work again and again and again. Success takes effort. But what is effort? Websters Dictionary says: "effort - earnest and conscientious activity intended to do or accomplish something".
I think as affiliate marketers we have the best job in the world. I really love what I do and I can't wait until I can do it full time. I mean I get to write (which is my passion) and I get to meet amazing people while making money. It really is awesome. And days like today really make all the work feel worthwhile. Today I woke up to 18 Amazon sales and I made commission at a few other sites as well. Even though I usually have a few sales a day, it still is exciting. I feel really blessed to ge
