Thanks for deciding to check out more about me. If you didn’t read it yet, you can find an introduction to me on the homepage, where I make an introduction to affiliate marketing.
However, I didn’t want to spend that entire page talking about myself and why I built this site, so that’s what I’ll do here on the about page.
First of all, I’ll give you a brief recap of who I am, what I do, and how I might be able to help you.
Who I Am
Dom Wells; I’m a full-time Internet Marketer, and have been since I first got started in August 2012. It wasn’t until 2014 that I was able to go ‘full-time’ though, which is a testament to the time it may take you. Don’t expect instant success. That said, I wasn’t the quickest person to figure out this making money online stuff either, so it could take you a lot less time.
It took me about 1.5 years to make more than $1,000 per month online (and 1.5 years after that, $10,000 per month), but I know people who did it in 6 months. That said, I also know people who have never got past more than a few hundred dollars, so you really need to make sure you follow the right guidance.
What I Do
I actually run several different online businesses.
As well as my niche/affiliate websites which I have, and will blog about from time to time, I am also involved with two services businesses, a WordPress software business, and then there’s this here blog too. You don’t need to have so many different businesses in order to make money online though, I just really like business and enjoy new ventures.
The service businesses:
The first one is HumanProofDesigns.com, where we create done-for-you niche websites and offer article services for customers. This is my biggest earner (clearing $110,000 USD profit in 2015), and where I spend most of my time. I started it back in 2013, so the momentum it has now is magnificent.
I have a team in place to help me run and grow the business.
The second one is OwnYourPage.com, which I co-founded with a personal friend. OYP is all about helping local businesses succeed with their SEO strategies. In other words, we get them to the top of Google for their desired search terms, and get them more customers in the process.
This is a longer term strategy as it takes time for businesses to know and trust you, but OYP has huge potential as well, so I’m excited to be a part of it.
The WordPress software business:
WordPress is a huge community and there are hundreds of different companies selling software for use with WordPress websites. In my case, I own AuthorityAzon, which is arguably the best amazon affiliate theme for wordpress. I didn’t create AuthorityAzon myself, but a fellow entrepreneur did, and gave me the opportunity to buy it from him.
Since I was a fan of the brand and there was a lot of synergy with HumanProofDesigns, I took him up on the offer, and added the business to my portfolio.
The niche/affiliate websites:
Of course, one of the core things I do is teach people how to make money online with affiliate marketing. In order to do that, I need to keep up to date with the latest techniques and trends; in other words, I need to keep building affiliate sites of my own, so that I walk the walk to match my talk.
I have several sites in different niches, and I most successeful was a shaving site which I recently sold for $27,000. I did this in order to raise capital to buy AuthorityAzon, otherwise I would have been happy to keep receiving the passive Amazon cheques every month!
How I Can Help You
Why did I create DigitalWells.com despite already having a string of successful websites? It’s simple. I wanted somewhere neutral where I could talk about all of my online endeavors, and many other types of online business, without it being biased or tied to a specific business.
For example, at HumanProofDesigns, I like to focus on amazon affiliate sites and niche sites, so if I wanted to write an article about eCommerce, Facebook advertising, or something else, I didn’t have anywhere to do that.
I also see a lot of people buying into scams and shiny objects, but I didn’t want to turn my other sites into a review-fest. DigitalWells gives me a place to objectively talk about various ventures, and be able to get down into the nitty gritty details of making money online.
On this page, I introduce you to Wealthy Affiliate, the place where my journey started, and where you can start too. It’s an online community and training hub that teaches everything you need to know about getting started and moving forward. I’ve been a member there for 4 years, so hopefully I’ll see you there too.
As well as specific guides and how-to’s, I’ll also review various different online opportunities, giving my insights and experience on them. I’m not always going to be right, but for the most part, I’ll be much better at identifying the real opportunities than you, and will be able to save you from being scammed in the process.
I sometimes find myself pulling my hair out in exasperation at the things beginners fall for, and the shiny objects they waste their money on. This isn’t their fault; it’s down to a lack of experience, and clever marketing on behalf of the scammers. Hopefully I will be able to put a stop to that.
