About WLusink
Joined October 2017
pretty new to affiliate marketing. Haven't made a buck. (edit 17 november 2017. I actually made 1 buck with amazon and adsense combined ;-)
Made two or three sites, but found out the niches were pretty tough, seo-wise.
Now building another site. Getting a little bing traffic, but big G is more difficult.
So, I'm at the niche/traffic stage. Building sites is not the problem. Sites that convert might be a challenge .. we'll see. First traffic.

Having a lot of fun with WA !!

Hi,
Paul here from Ontario, Canada.
Thank you for liking a comment I made on a post from 'Coach.'

I would like to follow you here at WAU.

What do they call you? What do like to be called?
And yes, I should have watched some football before getting back to coach.

I like your sense of humour.

Kindest regards,

Paul Mindra.

Hi Paul, I'm called Wouter, that's my first name. It's Dutch, so not internationally well known :-)

My name is the Dutch version of Walter, which you probably know.

I'll be keeping an eye out for posts from you!

cheers,
Wouter

I hope things are seeming to look up a bit....I am at the making my website look fancy stage and trying to think of things to write..Question for you..Are you able to use a youtube vid that is not yours if it gives rights to said maker of the video? Cause I am a huge person with music, and I wanted to be able to place a song to open when someone goes to my page, mainly because if they read my content listening to a certain encouraging "man take over the world" song..... they me be more likely to take the challenge..What do you think? and do you think that could be possible with the video?

Hi Lilly, that's a good question. Since the video is already on YouTube, you'd expect the rights issue to be covered by YouTube.
Only I think that there are tons of videos on YouTube that aren't legally there. So I'm afraid that YouTube leaves the rights issue up to te poster of the video.

All in all I'd be very careful with putting copyrighted music on my website.

It's best to ask the rights owner for permission.



I don't know if there are sites out there for public domain videos??

Once you have a video on your site, I do think that there is an auto play option. You can find the video settings when you are on youtube and you start sharing/embedding the video

Hi Wouter,

Thank you for following me and it is very nice to meet you.

It is a real learning process in WA and doing what is necessary for SEO to rank is important but you will develop and you will see yourself grow.

I look at stuff I wrote only 2 months back and see how bad it is. But at the time I thought it was good. You will develop and you will write and see it as the visitor wants to see it. And believe me, it doesn't just happen overnight.

William Hearn hit the nail on the head in his message below.

On a final note Wouter, I wish you the very best in both health and wealth. We are here to help you!

Cheers,

Brad

Hi and thanks for following me. I agree that SEO is the thing that is needed most for success in this business. It doesn't matter if you have the best product since individually wrapped, sliced cheese if people can't find you. Never give up though. You will hit it and hit it big when it comes!! Peace - William

Hello Wouter,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun at WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition to the Walkthrough called "After The Walkthrough". Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I just wrote my 102nd training for WA. I have categorized them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Yes, it may take a while to start making money, but you are still at the development stage. I joined about the same time you did. I'm just working the program. I work at it before and after work. I'm looking forward to the time I can retire and continue with WA as a passive income.

Hello, Wouter, and welcome! I, too, am just a newbie.
As to your "competition concerns", I would ask myself, after checking the competition, " Just, how can I personalize or put a special spin on my site, will encourage people to want to come to mine?" I must remember that this is about good relation building, which creates trust, and people that will want to return...for more goodies!
Best to you...patience is the key!

Welcome to WA - lots to learn here- stay focused - go through the Certification Courses first - you will get confused or frustrated from time to time - ask lots of questions - people are here to help you. 

HERE ARE 3 WA'ers Training Posts - they helped me - one is vocabulary you use here - one is a detailed use of your dashboard to find anything you will need - one is a plug-in to add to WordPress - that will help you build your sties. Hope they help - they did me This one I wrote - deals with how to "close" for the result you want. Stay with it - you don't need a wish of good luck - you need a plea to study the material and stay at it no matter what - it will change your life and hopefully the people you touch with your message.

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! :)

Hi Kyle, I've been looking around for a niche for a three or maybe four months... since the beginning of my online entrepreneurship actually :-)

I'm already in woodworking, but I'm not sure if I want to keep that a hobby or change that in a money making machine :-)

a day or two ago, I found this niche that I'm interested in: mosquito control. I'm investigating competition and keywords on jaaxy now.

What do you think?

Thinking about the premium membership too!!

A niche can honestly be anything, what are you passionate about? What are you interested in?

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

Today I started actively going through the training. I already saw three interesting articles which I read and this is all good stuff for beginners.
I'll leave it at that. I've gotta go continue with the training :)
