About WouterdeHaas
Joined August 2015
Hi! I'm Wouter, a traditionally trained marketing- and communications professional. Self employed since the summer of 2014, enjoying it and doing well.

Back when I was studying for my degree in my profession, online marketing was pretty much non-existent. And getting my work experience in business-to-business environments, my exposure to this field in general and affiliate marketing in particular has been very limited. I'd like to change that for two reasons.

1. The importance of e-commerce and everything pertaining to it has sky rocketed during the last decade or so and I believe it will continue to do so. I feel that if I wish to stay on top of my game, I need to stay up-to-date . And I think that WA is the place to go if you want hands-on training in affiliate marketing.

2. I wouldn't mind creating a side income to my offline business at all! ;)

For the rest: I'm Dutch, father of a 3 yo girl and owner of three magnificent big dogs.

Hello Wouter. Found you through your encouraging comment you left for another.

Just wanted to drop in and meet you. And now to meet your very big and gorgeous dogs too. My goodness they are magnificent!

So you have been in the mix since August. I hope that everything you are learning and experiencing is surfacing your business acumen. I expect we will see much creative genius as your website gets moving.

Glad to meet you here.

Hi Linda,

Thanks for dropping by and getting to know me a little. Yes, I'm very proud of my dogs, magnificent indeed and wonderful companions, definitely worth meeting! :-)

My progress here at WA has been slow, because of my offline business expanding. But that's okay, this was anticipated before I joined and in my mind it's a good reason to make little steps here.

Very pleased to meet you,

Wouter

Hi there,

thanks for the follow and welcome to WA!

Your dogs look adorable. Are those Bernese Mountain Dogs? I once had a neighbor and he had a couple of those dogs. Very friendly and energetic dogs. They always came to the fence and said hello. :)

WA definitely helps with an offline business. It does for ours and has changed many things to provide better service and more opportunities. What you learn here is definitely of benefit - online and offline.

Wishing you and your family all the best and continued success.

Hi Nicole,
Thanks and you're quite welcome, of course. And yes, four Bernese Mountain Dogs! :-) I can confirm all your experiences with this breed. Absolutely fantastic dogs, love them to pieces.

I've only been with WA for some three weeks and already reaping benefits. Learning an awful lot too, it's truly great.

All the best to you and loved ones too,

Wouter

Hi Wouter, Thanks for following me. Yes - the world will move past us if we don't keep up to date with modern trends, not always the best but we cannot change that.
I was in traditional marketing and selling, and have found that everything is so much quicker when you work through the net.

Hi John, you're quite welcome. I embrace the changes in our field of profession, rapid as they may be. The bulk of my offline business, as I call it, is actually online. Clients commissioning me to launch corporate websites, help out with their social media strategy and content, that sort of thing. It's about time I up my SEO skills + knowledge for one thing!
Reply
acejohn Premium
Hi Wouter, I don't know whether that includes websites or blogs for local businesses but that could be an additional income stream. A little tip that I picked up was to register local towns as domain names and put 'in' before them such as inbexley.com, this save money as you can do sub domains such as dentist.inbexley.com etc., see the following as an example: http://sportsmassage.inbexleykent.com/

I registered all the local towns - I charge for building the site and a monthly fee etc.,for up dating - it brings in godd income plus the sites are easy to find on google, locally
Reply
WouterdeHaas Premium
Hi John, great tip that! So far, I only worked on websites that my clients specifically wanted hosted on their own domains, but as soon as I manage to pick up some "smaller" accounts I will definitely implement this strategy. Cheers!

acejohn Premium
I make a direct approach to possible clients and have the local TV repairers, local football club etc., I have a resellers account with Hostgator so also make a profit on the hosting.

I tend to aim for somewhat bigger fish in my client acquisition efforts. Say 10 to 100 employees in B2B environments. And yeah, I approach those outfits in a very direct manner as well. I like to visit trade shows for face to face contact a lot. The phone is a medium that works for me as well. Usually, I get more work out of such clients after the initial website is launched or corporate brochure is printed. Establish long lasting collaborations that way. Strategic partnerships even. Nonetheless, I wouldn't avoid local smaller businesses at all. I do work for a local vet for instance. There's only so much client acquisition a sole proprietor has time for unfortunately, so for now, I'll focus on the bigger prospects, until I have grown enough to start outsourcing activities.

You are absolutely in the right place if you are looking to start your first online business Wouter! WA has quite a unique set of trainings and support that nowhere else can even come close to.

I've been through the training and have been a member here for 4 years, so if you need a hand with anything, just let me know.

Thanks again, Nathaniell. It's through your website that I first learned about WA and as expected, I like it a great deal. I'll make sure to reach out once I need some help.

PS: Nothing out of the ordinary. Some nature walks with my four dogs, help my wife out with catching up on the household stuff, spend some quality time with my daughter and prepare for the next work week. And get through a bunch of WA training modules of course!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Wouter!

Nathaniell here - you probably remember me from my site One More Cup of Coffee. I'm glad to see you've signed up and are ready to get started building your online business.

Right now, there are just two things you need to know.

1) Those who ask questions interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their goals. The support here at WA is the best in the internet marketing industry...please take advantage of it.

2) You can get started learning how to make money by doing your Level 1 Certification Course. Click on the green "Get Started Here" button or just click this link .

And don't forget that you can also access me for 1-on-1 support by leaving a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/nathaniell or by responding directly to this message.

There are a ton of other features you have access to right now, but they are explained in your main training linked above. Your #1 job right now is to get started on the first lesson.

PS. Did you know that you'll already have your website built by lesson 4? Crazy, I know!

I also wanted to let you know that if you join the premium membership in this 7 day window you'll get a TON of awesome stuff from me.

First off, you'll get a 59% discount ($19.95 for 1 month) on your membership. Twenty bucks for you first month of WA is an absolute steal.
