Welcome to the first post on this blog.
DuaneReeve.com is about getting to know me & WordPress…
and a few other things about making money online.
So, I guess I’ll start with a brief introduction… My name is Duane and I am the owner of FuturityWEB, a Web-Hosting & Web-Design Company based in Cape Town, South Africa. I started my online journey in December of 2009 after loosing everything in the 2008 property crash. I have still not fully recovered financially, but my ventures online have reaped some rewards and if nothing else, I have learned a tremendous amount about WordPress, Web-Hosting, Search Engine Optimisation and Internet Marketing as a whole.
[boxibt style=”yellow”]MY PRIMARY GOAL: At present my main GOAL is to consistently make US$100+ a day online from Internet Marketing. I already make money online providing ‘services’ to clients , but at this time it’s nothing life changing and its time consuming work.[/boxibt]
This blog/website is NOT my first and I already own and manage several other WordPress Websites, all of which are contributing to my making money online. I have also created several WordPress Websites for friends and for a few businesses in Cape Town.
When I started my online journey in Dec 2009, I knew nothing about WordPress. I had some IT Technical experience, having worked as an IT Support Technician for many years and I knew a little about HTML Coding. At the time of my financial demise I was a business owner (partner) in an Estate Agency (Realtors) in Cape Town. When the property market crashed, our business crashed and due to the political status in South Africa, finding employment was impossible. I was essentially forced to find a way to make money online and WordPress became my tool of choice after messing around with Joomla for a short period of time.
Ok, I need to cut-to-the-chase here. As you can see I can get quite long-winded with my writing, so I’ll try to cut out the rest of the babble and will create an About Me Page later (edit: this page has been created), which you can read if you are interested…
[boxibt style=”gray”]SECONDARY GOAL: To help others (you) build an online businesses using WordPress. Starting a WordPress Website/Blog isn’t that difficult, but nothing in life is hard, when you know how…[/boxibt]
My VISION for DuaneReeve.com, is quite simply to build relationships with like minded people or online entrepreneurs (or netrepreneurs, which I believe is the new term) and to build a group of ‘friends’ keen to break the $100+ a day income threshold. While doing this; I hope to document everything I do and along the way I will share what know about WordPress, SEO and Making Money Online. The pages/posts that follow on this blog will include the processes used as I build up this WordPress Blog and my online business in general.
I’m going to end this post with a Quote…
