About With-Kev
Joined May 2016
I have spent years in the online marketing business without success, spent $ssss on training and programs but very inconsistent results. I know what I have to do to turn this around but feel very alone in the cyber world and don't have support/mentor I need. I don't imagine I am the only one in this situation. Perhaps someone out there who is motivated to win and in the same situation can join me and we can help each other in this journey.

Hi Kev,
Thank you for the follow, like yourself I too am new to WA and am constantly learning. WA is so unique in their training programs and the WA Community are fabulous. If you ever get stuck dont be afraid to ask, it's amazing the support you will receive and if I can help in any way, just let me know.
I wish you all the best.

Hi With-Kev,

Thanks for following me; I'll follow you right back.

Wish I had more experience to help you; I'm only starting.

Sounds to me like you have already done all the hard work, you have all the pieces of a Puzzle. You only need someone to help you put the pieces together properly and then do some fine tuning.

There has to be someone in this community that will help you and act as a Mentor; keep asking around.

Good Luck

Greetings Kev,

Hey, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for following me back on this ascending trek towards financial freedom!

I know how it feels to feel like youre running a solo operation. There is always a team of pros on the live chat willing to answer any questions you have.

If you haven't gone through all of the training, you can find tons of help within the bootcamp etc. or even just looking back for some info that may have been disregarded before.

I wish you all of the best and look forward to networking with you soon. If you would like any reviews or any help, just post on my profile and I'll get back to you asap.

Regards,

-Phil (Frosts)

Hi Kev,

most of the products you can find in this industry are just showing you results of THEIR own success. Once signed up, it doesn't work because they lack one thing. Showing you step by step to reach those results.

WA is different, because they SHOW you the steps to create a successful online business - from scratch.

Other programs set you up with a pre-designed website hundreds if not thousands of others have, too. Duplicate content doesn't work anymore. You get penalized.

Yet, you're supposed to make money in the same format they do, in a matter of hours or days.

It never works, because you're missing crucial ingredients to success.

If you're new, you don't know how to generate traffic.

If you're new, you don't know how to create quality content from the get go, unless you're a natural born writer and don't have to get better at it.

Most of us are beginners with no internet marketing background. If you have a great training platform like here at WA, you can be a greenhorn with no knowledge. The training will transform you into a successful entrepreneur - just as Kyle has blogged about. You're in good hands here and the whole community can be considered as your mentor. Some people know different things than others. One hand washes the other.

Reach out and take action!

Wishing you lots of success and if you need any help, let me know. :)

Good evening Kev, my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. You know I also spent several years teaching myself IM before I found WA. What a blessing this has been.
I don't know if you will find a true "mentor" here, but you will find a lot of very successful entrepreneurs that are willing to answer your questions and may even offer suggestions.
I look forward to working with you and possible we will help each other, kind of scratch my back, I scratch yours. I wish you much success and prosperity in your journey.

Fadhil, I have checked back many times to see if you had read my answer to the problem of finding my website, NO, you can go to my profile to find my website simply because my website has not been finished. I sill have a lot of work to do, and I have had wonderful reviews of a page, the 47 foot cowboy on my website, TITLE 501 Levi jeans for men-for tall and big, original regular. But they and you will too, have to look from my domain site. Here is how you find my website.
findmejeans.com Or
http://findmejeans.com
If you see that you must click on a site after you log in findmejeans.com
then click on my title after you get there.
I have gotten messages for the icon with the world above that says, 2 and sometimes 3 and have found nothing from that, and for that reason, I contacted you from your profile to see that you got my message. I have some short pages and posts, but I also have a long one 3,000 word post that is really a story; quite different from any websites I have read. That one is called, Everyone has a Story." The story about cotton and the history about jeans is okay as well as the 501 page above. Up to you, but I like to find as many feed backs as possible, but few have from these I described to you. If you want to see the 47 foot cowboy (everybody does) okay, go ahead a look, but I would like some other feed backs on other content I have written. Thanks, but you did say you would look.

Hello Kev,
I thought I saw on my dashboard that you had asked what my book was about, but then I couldn't find your question. (!?!) So I'll answer it (and hope you were the person who asked).

My book teaches parents (or grandparents, etc.) how to teach their child to read. I'm busy preparing to make videos of PowerPoint slides showing people how to teach. I've done all the slides for 9 videos in the last couple of weeks. Now I have to spend the next few days doing the audio and turning them into videos. I've never done that before, so I expect I'll earn a few more grey hairs in the next week. Then I plan to turn the entire course into a set of videos. I'm expecting that to keep me out of mischief for the remainder of the year.

I hope you're making progress with your goals, too,
Merrin
Reply
With-Kev Premium
Yes it was me Merrin.
With your videos. Do you know you can record voice over your PowerPoint presentations directly with the Camtasia plugin? So you can do the audio and video together. And edit your video before you produce it.
I use it all the time and it is very easy to use.
Sounds like a lot of work but the results will be rewarding and, hopefully profitable.
Let me know when you are finished, love to see some of your work.
Happy to help with Camtasia.

Hello Kev,
Sorry about being so slow to reply.

I've been beavering away on Power Point, and finally got to the stage of videoing, but have hit some technical issues - static. And a dead computer, which I've just replaced.

I've moved to videoing with the computer on a glass table, hoping that that will help. I'll go out today and get a better quality mic. I suspected I'd need one, because of the work I'm trying to do.

I have been using Knovio to do the narration. Knovio is very easy to use, but it may not be able to do the rapid transitions I'd really like to be able to do (when I want the student to sound out a word, and I want to give them the answer - and I want the student moving swiftly through the sounds so they have some hope of 'hearing' the sounds blend into a word).

I hear Camtasia's very good, but I've been put off by the price - just under $400 here. I had a look after I'd read your email, and worked out it would pay for itself in a couple of years (compared to Knovio).

I noticed that there is a free month Camtasia trial. I'll give that some serious thought, now I have some presentations ready to go. Once I can get rid of or seriously reduce the static.

I'll have a peer at the Camtasia plugin. It hadn't occurred to me there would be one. These Wordpress people are a creative lot, aren't they!

All this techy stuff is a worry to me. I'm not at all techy - that's why I came to WA; I kept running into brick walls and grinding to a halt. I've done much better since I got here because of the support.

Thanks for your support. I really appreciate it.

With-Kev Premium
Hi Merrin, the Camtasia plugin it actually for PowerPoint. You record your voice over and video directly in PowerPoint then it takes you to Camtasia to edit.
Camtasia has audio editing features too, you can reduce background noise.
You can buy it a lot cheaper the $400, it cost me $99.
Camtasia has very good tutorials.
I also use another plugin for powerpoint called Presentation Media. It has lot's of clipart, animations and templates to make your presentations professional.
Let me know if I can help.
Cheers Kev

MerrinL Premium
Hello Kev,
Wow! That's very interesting.
I had a quick look at recording the narration directly into Powerpoint, but I couldn't see my notes. Do you know a way around that problem? (I could print them out, but I find it very handy having them right near the video they belong to.)

I'll have a peer at Presentation Media.

Do you have any ideas about a mic? I have a cheapy one, but I thought I'd go out tomorrow and get a decent USB free standing mic I can sit on my desk. I don't know what might be available here; I might have to get it online.

Thanks for your help. I really appreciate it,
MerrinL

With-Kev Premium
Are you including a video of yourself, if so you want your notes near the camera so you don't have to look away, Can do a small screen in screen of yourself with Camtasia.
I just use the text in the presentation and ad lib with anything else.

I use gaming headphone with a mic. Not the best but the results are OK when they are edited in Camtasia. A good mic is an investment. If I bought one now I would look at a handheld or lapel mic.
Presentation Media is nice to have but not essential, you thought if you are doing presentations for kids they have a lot of characters you could use to make the presentation fun. The also have schoolroom themes. ie with the blackboard.

Can't wait to see the finished product

Hope this helps

Hello Kev,
No, I don't want a pic of me in the video. I want them to concentrate on what I'm teaching.
I'll do the free trial and see how I go regarding the notes. No adlibbing allowed. It's got to be spot on.
$100 ish sounds a lot more manageable than $400!
Thanks for your help,

Kev, engagement metrics in google analytics are important factors determining our rankings. Please read further below:

Google is putting more emphasis in User Experience. Because Google can't read human's mind, Google rely on engagement metrics, which can be found in Google Analytics to judge user experience. For examples :
1. Sessions with search : total number of visitors who searched for your website in Googl search
2. Results Pageview / Search : total number of pages visited after clicking into your website from search results
3. Click Through Rate (CTR) : the percentage of users clicking into your website from search results
4. Pageview : total number of pageviews
5. Unique pageviews : total number of pageviews by new users
6. Avg. time on page : average time spent reading a page
7. Pages/session : average number of pages users navigated when visiting your site
8. Avg. session duration : average time spent navigating your website
9. Bounce rate : the percentage of users leaving your website without navigating to a second page

Therefore if we can help each other improve the above engagement metrics, which indicate good user experience to Google, we will be able to improve our rankings.

I have started a ranking tool in my site to do exactly that, inviting people from WA community and people from other communities, so that we can get more people to contribute in this movement.

Please visit http://www.kickstartdream.com, and click on Ranking Tool.

Hi Karen, Aquaponics will work anywhere but, like a conventional garden, it is restricted by the seasons. There are indoor aquaponics systems you can use in cold climates or small spaces. These are great for growing herbs and small veggies

I'm making some sales and feel I'm making progress even though I'm not following the training to the letter. (I'm not an affiliate or promoting WA or doing a blog. Instead, I'm selling my own book.)

Your aquaponics website looks very beautiful and informative. Well done.

There is a famous quote from Mark Twain:

"If it's your job to eat a frog, it's best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it's your job to eat two frogs, it's best to eat the biggest one first."

And that just means - do your hardest task first or at least as soon as you can in the morning. If you do this then the rest of your day is easy from there!

ANYWAY…

Hello, Kev thanks for the follow and welcome to WA. You are definitely in the right place!

hi kev - thanks for the follow
it would appear your aquaponics have caused a bit of interest here, have you had any follow up?
how is it going?
at present growing the usual toms and cucumber hydro - don;t have the confidence to do aquaponics. do you grow tilipia as the fish crop?
how do you cope with algae in the fish water or are they kept in te dark?
if i can help please shout
have fun

Phil, lot's of questions! I have lot's of interest in the site but still building a following. I haven't tried to monetize the site yet.
It is going great, enjoying every minute.

I have just moved back to Aust from Thailand so just building a new system. I grew everything in Thailand even a Papaya tree. Eveything grew exceptionally well
My systems there were barrel Aquaponics with an elbow siphon. Now I am doing the Bell Siphon which is much easier to manage.

The algae has never been a problem as long as the fish pond is not in direct sunlight. There also a lot of water circulation in the system which helps.

Tilapia are by far the best fish to grow as they are very hardy, can stand a range of water temperatures. Almost impossible to kill. Very cheap in Thailand but hard to buy here in Australia. There also one of the best talbe fish.

When you get the setup right Aquaponics is the easiest system to manage, feed the fish and check pH levels everyday.

Love to hear your stories, this is a lonely game and always good to make the right connections. Cheers kev

sounds interesting - i might have to have a go at it. we have a pond, wild life at the moment, frogs and newts - it had fish but the last one died last year. maybe a new use for it?
the other way would be the ibc method.
i am using simple dwc ( bucket of water) system, change nutrient every two to three weeks. very successful for the last few years.
i tried a flood and drain and was successful with it but found that setting it up was hassle, am trying to make another one but probably will run out of time this year - unless i design it as an indoor one!!!!
did try potatoes in the flood and drain and was suprised when i got a handful out after the plants had gone over - so the small potatoes would be very successful in one of these systems.
i will have to find out what type of fish are available in uk for the aquaponics and maybe have a try next year.
thanks for the info
have fun

Hi Phil. Great to see you are trying aquaponics. Actually, root vegetables don't grow well in aquaponics. Tilapia are the best fish. There are many designs for indoor aquaponics. Cheers Kev

Hi With-Kev,

Thanks for following.
At least you take action. I just learn some IM but no action.
Only now I thought I should do something and start somewhere.
So happens I stumble on Ian site while checking out on one internet course which charges quite high.
I like Ian honesty and frankness.
That is how I am now at WA.
Thanks again. Wishes you all the best.

Guys, I started a thread to help each other to improve Google ranking by :
1. Organically search for each other's website (to improve number of organic search, pageviews and unique pageviews)
2. Browsing through each other's website for at least 10 minutes (to improve average time on page, pages/session, Avg session duration and bounce rate)

As you can see from Google Analytics, these are among the factors determining our ranking:
1. Pageview
2. Unique pageviews
3. Avg. time on page
4. Pages/session
5. Avg. session duration
6. Bounce rate

The existing 'exchanging comment thread' is good but I found a problem with it, most of the people go to a particular page, put a comment and left the website. This is really hurting the Avg. time on page, pages/session, Avg. session duration and most of all the bounce rate.

So I suggest we help ourselves in a more effective way, yes we will spend a little more time but it is definitely worth the effort.

Hello, Kevin,

Welcome aboard. I have found WA to be more than what I had bargained for when I signed on. I hope that this has been your experience too. I see you are making some good progress with Aquaponics, though I must admit that I do not know what that id. I just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I am doing the Bootcamp thingy and wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. From what I understand everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. I pray that that will be what I find too.

I want to succeed with your program and I want you to do it too. I, like you have tried to do this for about 8 months now without making any money. Spending money? yes MAKING MONEY?? No. If you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, reach out.

Here's the quick tip. Look at car websites/real estate/doctors/dentists/painters. These businesses do it best. They 1) generate the lead (through active inquiry called data capture)... and 2) have mellow secretarial follow-up (as a form of telemarketing)... and 3) 'tag team' scheduled appointments & closings. Follow your favorites as study. The fastest marketers 'to money' are not necessarily the finest. The best marketers will always focus on core consumer needs, delivery, and satisfaction ..., plus, they will focus on building long-term relationships.

Thank yo, so easy. Do these have to be strong keywords? Cheers kev
Reply
Kyle Premium
No, keywords don't matter with these topics. They are much more important as you start to create content.

Keywords are the premise of all of your content. Ideally you will be finding keywords with a lower competition (also known as QSR) because it means that you are going to be competition with less websites in Google when you go to create your content.

You want your keyword to meet the following criteria:

(1) Must be lower than 200 QSR initially, as you get more authority in search engines you can tackle more competitive search terms.
(2) Must get some traffic, I ideally aim for over 50 searches per month
(3) Must make grammatical sense

I recently created training on how to come up with great keywords here and this is a strategy I have always used to build out my website Kevin ... Once you have your keyword, you are going to create a page or a post on your website targeting that keyword. It should be within the following places in your content:

(1) Somewhere in the page/post title
(2) Somewhere within the first paragraph

And then write your content naturally and make sure it is engaging. People search "keywords" when they are looking for something so as you start getting ranked under these keywords, you are going to start to see traffic.

Once you have traffic...you have a ton of opportunity to generate revenue.

Hope this helps you out Kevin!

Hi Kev, nice to meet you. Thank you for the follow! Love your site...I have bookmarked it. I was into hydroponics for over 20 years and just love the results. This aquaponics takes it one step further and I can't wait to try it! I haven't read through all the info yet but I am assuming the addition of the aquarium eliminates the need for buying fertilizers, which was a major expense and had to be replenished/changed every week with my hydroponic system. It's basically like turning my reservoir into an aquarium...brilliant! I wish you much success!

Hi Dawn, thank you for your kind words. Yes, knowing You can walk out to your garden and pick fresh organic food is a great feeling. The is a bit more to setting up your Aquaponics than just adding an aquarium but it is worth the effort. I can send you a eBook if you are interested me Cheers Kev

Thanks for the follow and see your website and have a question and that is basically because of FreshPaper. It seems that FreshPaper keeps fruit and vegetables fresh longer and wonder if that is indeed the case. I do have it at home but not used that. How do you keep the organic vegetables fresh?
Reply
With-Kev Premium
Same as any other fruit and vegetables. I have not studied methods of keeping fruit and vegetable fresh. That is an issue when produce is coming through the system, imported and stored in warehouses.
I spent sometime working in a growing region in Australia and got to know the owners if orchids. They told me they stored apples for up to two year before sending them to the market. Apparently this is common practice. I never trust food in the supermarket.
That is one of the good things about a home Aquaponics garden, you pick you food as you need it. Everything you eat is as fresh as it could possibly be. Cheers Kev
