In the last few posts I explained how to buy a domain name and get a hosting account. By now you should be ready to put everything together so that your site is “live” for the whole world to see…

But there’s a couple of things we’ve got to sort out first. Don’t panic! It’s dead easy… Just watch the videos below. Read the rest of this entry

How To Get Hosting

In my last couple of posts I  explained about choosing and getting a domain name.

If you haven’t done it yet, get moving! If you have, well done!

Remember: whatever you want to do online you’ll need a domain…
so don’t put it off. Do it now!

Okay. So let’s assume you’ve got a domain. Next thing is to get hosting.
Think of a domain as a caravan/camper/trailer/mobile home… whatever
you call it in your part of the world. Read the rest of this entry

How To Buy A Niche-Related Domain (URL)


In my last post I went through the process of  getting a domain with your name in it…  e.g. and as far as blogging is concerned this is probably the best way to go.

But you may decide, for whatever reason, that you don’t want your name plastered all over the internet… In which case you can go for the next best thing which is a niche-related domain. (Or do what I do and get both! After all, domains are pretty cheap).

Another advantage of having a niche-related domain is that of search engine optimization (SEO)… it makes it easier for the search engines to find and index your site. Read the rest of this entry

How To Buy A Domain (URL)


One of the very first things you need to do if you want to make money online is to get your very own domain…

Now I’m pretty sure you know what a domain is, but just in case is a domain name.

Okay, so what exactly do you need to do? Well, you’ve got two choices: Read the rest of this entry


Thanks for dropping by!

I’m going to “revamp” this much-neglected blog and show you how you can make money online AND build a huge responsive list. I’m the first to admit that I’m by no means the world’s best blogger… far from it. And if you’ve been on my list for more than a few days you probably know that I hate blogging! Which is a shame because blogging can have HUGE benefits!

So if I can do it I’m sure you can! Read the rest of this entry

My Six Figure Mentors Journey Update

Thanks for dropping by.

As you may have read in my previous posts, I joined The Six Figure Mentors (SFM) at the end of November 2011. Within around four to five weeks I’d started making money!

Okay, so it wasn’t a fortune, but I’d achieved something in that time that I hadn’t done in five years of struggling to make money online… I was actually making money! And continued to do so.

And then something “magical” happened… I made my first $1000 commission! WOW! It was a tremendous feeling, one that I’ll never forget.

I’ve decided to spend a lot more time blogging and adding content to this site, so please drop in now and then to see what’s going on.

See you soon,

All Going Well With The Six Figure Mentors


I’ve been pretty busy sorting out my “Six Figure Mentors” (SFM) training. I must be honest and say that I was less than happy when SFM changed the training program and their hosting. It meant that I had to start all over again.

But it was worth it as the new training is even better than before. AND I STARTED MAKING MONEY!!!

Yes, it’s true. In the sales pages Stuart Ross says that he’ll show you how to build an online business that makes money in 6 to 12 weeks. Well I beat that! I started making money in just under 4 weeks!

At the moment I’m experimenting with some different ways (both free and paid) to send traffic to my sites. I’m concentrating mainly on my squeeze page so’s I can build my list.

Stay tune… I’ll let you know how I get on.

This Blog’s Very First Post!

Hi there,

Robert Watkins here, and welcome to my new internet marketing blog. This blog is a “journal” of my experience with my new mentor, Stuart Ross and his “Six Figure Mentors” program. What I learn (both successes and failures) I’ll share with you to help you achieve success online, so stay tuned and feel free to bookmark my blog and check back regularly on my progress: my “journey into internet marketing.”

I’ve been online for about four years and learned lots of things, unfortunately making money’s not one of them! Because I already had a few domains (including this domain) and hosting I was able to get this site and running  fairly quickly. I was scratching my head, wondering what to write on this first post when I noticed one of my plugins needed updating. So I updated it…

DISASTER STRUCK … Across the screen it said: FATAL ERROR

My site was dead… gone forever. I couldn’t get into wordpress admin. I couldn’t access it through cpanel. I couldn’t do anything using ftp.

When I stopped panicking and had a little time to think, I sent an email to my host (Hostgator) asking for help. In less than an hour this site was back online!

So what have I learned today?


Get your hosting from a good company.  Hostgator’s technical support are fantastic! I cannot recommend them too highly.


Make regular backups of your WordPress site. I’ve just bought some information on making your wordpress site more secure, and how to backup properly. I’ve not read it yet, but I’ll let you know when I have.


Don’t install WordPress plugins for the sake of it! If you don’t need them, don’t install them! If you don’t know what they do, don’t install them!

Thanks for visiting, and check back soon,
