About YStrumpher
Joined May 2019
My name is Yolanda and I am from South Africa. I have a passion for everything travel related, especially learning about different cultures and meeting people around the world. I went to Southeast Asia in 2017, first time flying and going overseas, but the bug has bitten me. I am travelling again this year.

I would also like to start a profitable and sustainable travel business online, while helping other people achieve their dreams in the process.

Welcome and congratulations on starting a new journey! You have made a great decision and you will not regret it.
You will find that the community support is amazing and the training is just out of this world (well the internet world, lol).
Anyway, as the saying goes: You Only Live Once, so make this the best thing that has ever happened in your life.
I am happy to be part of your network and to be part of your story here at WA.
Best wishes,

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Premium!

Glad that you joined us. 

WA is an amazing environment to learn and apply our skills towards creating an online business. I tried to do this alone before and was completely lost. 

Now I know why. 

There are so many tricks of the trade and it saves so much time having it all laid out clearly in the WA training programs. 

Keep following the training and exercises every day. Give it a year to see significant results. You'll be a happy camper by then. We all make progress at different rates and it is possible to see meaningful results in 4-6 months. Google cannot be rushed. 

Google rewards people with websites that provide value to their visitors. It helps to boost their ad revenue of course! And that helps your websites get high rankings. But it takes time to build credibility. Once they realize your site is an authority site, good things will happen faster. 

When you get stuck, and you will, just ask for help in the discussion area located below each lesson. Scroll down to find it. Another member who has the answer will get back to you promptly. 

In the meantime have fun with the program. Much success to you.

Cheers!

Edwin

Hello! Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate and congratulations for choosing the Premium Plan rather than staying in Free Plan.

To me it sounds you're really serious with building your own online business and earn a steady passive income from the niche you love.

Given, I encourage you to take the training seriously and spend time to build your website and content that your readers love as well as your potential business partners. This won't be an overnight process.

You need to understand that building a lifelong business such as earning passive income entails a lot of consistent hard work without self-doubt. Not an inch of it.

With tenacity and consistent practice of doing your best, you will receive a pleasant reward in the end. If you have questions, feel free to send me a message. I'll be happy to help each other out.

Again, congratulations and welcome for being here. Have a nice day! Let's keep in touch. :)

Cheers,

Mecyll

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 Jack,

My niche is travel, but I am not sure yet about more specific details. I am trying to get my travel consultant business up and running, booking trips for people. I would ideally like to specialize in family travel and group bookings.

Do you have any ideas?

Hey Yolanda, Jack here. Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

I'm glad to see you've signed up and are ready to get started.

Before you start making money, there are just 5 things you need to know.

1) I've recently created a YouTube Channel dedicated to sharing my knowledge and experience with affiliate marketing. I think that you are going to get a lot of value from it, so do subscribe to my Channel. It is brand new (as of 5 September 2018), so pardon me if there is only a few videos. I will continue to post the training videos on the channel every week. Here's the link to my YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCY7IhZ5Uq_qFB9PgN8Rjy3g

2) Subscribe to my 10 day email course to help you get started (if you haven't already). Please let me know your email address so that I can put you on the list.

3) Those who ask questions, interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their goals. Watch this video here to learn how to maximize your community reach in WA More buddies means more support. More support means more success.

4) You can get started learning how to make money by doing your Level 1 Certification Course. Here's the link to the course: Remember that you can ask any questions you want in the live chat, on your personal blog, or in the Getting Started Classroom here:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/getting-started

And, don't forget that I am always around to help you out. You can contact me anytime through my personal email address: mailto:jackcao@sproutmarketer.com.

Also, in case you haven't heard my stories about how I made my first dollar online to how I fired my boss and never looked back, you can check them out here. Many WA members find them inspiring and it helps them understand the emotion and psychology about being a true internet entrepreneur:

2016 (My Struggles leading to my First Milestone): https://barenakedscam.com/wealthy-affiliate-update-2

Feel free to leave a comment on the post or maybe give it a "Like"? :)

? Your Bonus ?

If you join Premium within the first 7 days, here are some bonuses that I am going to be giving you:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)
(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there.
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus"
(4) My personal coaching course (coming soon)

But only if you join in your first 7 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, thought I would just introduce myself and if you have any questions going forward, let me know. :) Wonderful to have you as part of the community here in WA!

Your friend,

Jack

Thanks, Jack

I really appreciate it that I stumbled upon this opportunity through you. I am very excited and already completed the 1st section of the training.

I am going overseas on the 6th of June 2019, and will only be returning on 18 July 2019. So if I decided to take the premium membership now, I will loose a full month of using the benefits. Can I join Premium when I return, and will it cost more?

Kind regards,
Yolanda
