About WoodyMdEsign
Joined August 2017
Hi,
my name is Martina. The Woody comes from a very important 4legged person in my life. He taught me a lot about not giving up, looking forward and how much can be achieved with the right kind of help.
Having looked after child, husband, house and horses for a long time I'm ready to find a little niche of my own.
I live in South Wales, one of the wettest parts of the UK. Great for waterfall photography (on a dry day????), not so great for a person who needs warmth and sunshine as much as I do.
Getting frustrated with the results of my point and shoot pictures I have now started to learn photography and enjoy it immensely.

Thank you Martina for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. As a Premium Member you are probably aware of the AWESOME and FREE WA Keyword Tool we have unlimited access to.

This is the keyword research tool I have used exclusively after I became a Premium member 3+ years ago and it has helped me many times to find awesome keywords that have led to Google page 1 rankings.

I created very popular WA Training Tutorials, Part 1 and Part 2, on how to use the WA Keyword Tool for keyword research. If you have not seen it and would like to learn how simple it is to use and a little about keywords, click the below link when you have the time.

Martina, So glad to meet you! I live in the foothills of Colorado, in the US, but grew up on the plains of this state. I am very sensitive to overcast days, so I understand what that feels like. I am hoping to take up photography too. My grandmother's family was from Wales, not sure what part. I am retired and live near my two grown daughters, two son-in-laws, two grandsons, and a furry granddaughter who has trauma because of being a stray. I babysit while my daughter is at work or she cries because she fears abandonment. She too has taught me so much. Her name is Queen Ann, but we call her Annie. Lol! This is the final day of editing and getting my keywords recorded. I am so ready to finish the foundation part of my website and get it our there!!!!!!
I hope we can visit more when this part is done! Good luck, I will use some of your wet day photos if you will share! Love that butterfly picture! DDee

Hi DDee,
Great to hear from you. I've been to Colorada half a lifetime ago. A very beautiful part of the world. Maybe you could find out where your welsh side of the family comes from... Incidentally I'm German but have lived in Wales for over 17 years now.
I would love to stay in contact and have a look at each others attempts of a website

If I remember right, near Cardiff. Their last name was Kiffen. I am not sure I spelled it right, it does not look right. Anyway, they settled in Colorado on the western slope and did accounting for a large ranch there. Since you do not live in the US, do you know how I could get readers in other countries? Germany, France, Japan? My research for my website has mentioned many other countries than the US. This is my website and niche. How is yours going?

Cardiff is only about 27 miles from where I live. The name Kiffen doesn't look anything like a Welsh name at all, more German actually. Would be a research project for you.
About your website, I wish mine was as far advanced as yours. It's looking good.
Don't know about France or Japan but in Germany is definitely a market for your niche. Problem is the language. Most younger Germans speak English, of course but they wouldn't necessarily do their search in English. How you could solve that particular problem is beyond my current knowledge about everything to do with all that stuff. But I'm sure there are some people here at WA who would know how to approach that.

I don't really have a way to do more research about my grandmother's family. All of her family has passed. I believe it may have been spelled Kyffin. Her father was an accountant so that does not seem to indicate his nationality. After they retired my grandparents made a trip to Wales.
Thanks for the knowledge that there are other countries like Germany to try to reach.
Hope your website is going ok.
I may need to be gone for awhile but hope to be back. Dee

Can be very tricky to find out about family history. Especially if the name is not 100% clear. The K is not a letter in the Welsh alphabet so the spelling could be Cyffin which looks very Welsh indeed. Or they came from a different country and changed the name to a more anglicised version. Well, it's fun and interesting to search for ones history.
Keep me updated how it's going when you find the time.

Hello everyone, thank you all for your welcome and kind words. At the moment I find it quite hard keeping up with everything. Living in a part of the U.K. With extremely slow to at times non existent Internet can be challenging.

Awesome. I noticed a few people said that my Instagram guide was missing the photography e-book bonus. If you didn't get that, let me know!

Well, since it is missing I didn't know it was.... But yes, it's missing

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! :)

Things never go according to plan but I guess there is always a reason...
Here is something I would like to ask you. My husband actually could do with a website for his private pain clinic. Never even thought about it until people answered my very unspecific questions. Anyway, the clinic is established but we never advertised it. If I were to build a website how would I go about the affiliate side of things. For insurance reasons my husband has to stick with the scientifically recognized medicine. But we are both interested in alternative medicine. Would that be something to go with or rather find something local?
And the other question (probably getting ahead of myself here). I have an Instagram account where I post some of my photographs. Nothing to do with pain but could I still link it to the website?

Kyle Premium
If it is a local business, you probably wouldn't have any affiliate marketing on. Rather you would be marketing the actual business itself and getting reach through local marketing. These are the rankings you see when someone types no local search for this sort of clinic.

We have an abundance of training here on local marketing, from our in-house local marketing expert Jay. So this is definitely something that you could do in parallel with any other websites your building here. It is all included in your service! :)
