About Adi2008
Joined May 2008
I'm Adi (Adrian) from the United Kingdom.

I've been at Wealthy Affiliate as a continuous member since 2008 and the quality of training here is top notch. It has given me the confidence to build and rank websites for affiliate niches and also for local SEO clients. Additionally, I also offer Pay Per Click services, again using the knowledge gained here at WA.

If you're new here and new to IM, you may well feel overwhelmed. I know I did, BUT it does get easier as you become more familair with the various terminology & techniques of internet marketing.

In 2008, I was fed up in my day job and looked for opportunities to earn an income online. You guessed it, I Googled "make money online" and after clicking around on the various search results, it was a review of WA by the legend that is Travis Sago that caught my attention and hooked me in (Thanks Travis, I owe you).

Since joining, I've steadily built my knowledge and experience of internet marketing while still being employed in a not so interesting day job (in software development) with an intention of 'someday' doing IM full-time. That someday is now a reailty as having taking redundancy from my job in late 2013, I am now building up my new online business which consists of a growing list of local SEO clients (businesses who either don't have an internet presence or what they do have isn't very good!) and my own portfolio of income generating sites (Amazon affiliate & digital product sales).

What am I most looking forward to working for myself as an Internet Marketer?
> Freedom to work when I want, with who I want, where I want and on what I want
> Not having a ceiling on my earning potential and knowing that the effort I put in will be directly related to my earnings.
> Freedom to stay at home with my young son in the school holidays and to pick him up from school daily.
> Having the creative freedom of working on whatever I choose.
> To live life based on my choices, not those of others.

Feel free to add me to your network. I am on Wealthy Affiliate everyday and do check on the updates of those in my network.

To our success,

Adi (or Adrian, I don't mind)

Hey Adi,

you've got a great profile! I found you due to DomW's thread "What sold you on internet marketing?" and I really liked your reasons for being in IM. I am a university student from Germany and I work beside my studies at the university to make a living somehow. With IM I hope to get more financial freedom in the future for fulfilling my personal dreams of marrying and founding a family. May I ask you how many sites you have up and running so far in order to make a full-time income and how much time you spend on IM every day on average?

Best regards from Germany to Great Britain,
Vanessa =)

Hey Vanessa, thanks for adding a comment. I am up to 3 sites at the moment plus 2 more at the research stage. I'm not making a full-time income yet, but the skills and experience I have gained from Wealthy Affiliate has given me the confidence to take a calculated gamble that the redundancy payment I received from my job will keep me afloat while I build up my online business to a level that will provide a full-time income. This approach may not be for everyone, as it's down each individual's comfort level.

Vielen Dank und viel Glück!

Hello Adrian. Thanks for the buddy request. I can relate to your about me post. You wrote that back in January I think- so how are things going for you?
Reply
Adi2008 Premium
Hi Devan! The whole IM thing has been on my mind all year since writing that, but it is only just recently I have re-focussed my attention and started taking action, going back over the action plan and creating a plan of action. Leo Messi (Cian McCarthy) on the forum has also inspired me with his recent postings about his 300 WA sign-ups. Watch this space!
