About Amanda914
Joined September 2015
Hello everyone! I'm new to online marketing. I studied different subjects in three different colleges (majored in Fine Art, Legal Assistant, Chinese, and Graphic Design) and have had several different jobs (helper in design department of large architectural firm; group travel accident underwriter; secretary in the educational technology department of a school district; and administrative coordinator for a nonprofit organization).

I retired from full-time work in 2007. For several years, I did some freelance work as a technical assistant helping a friend / former colleague, who was working as a consultant. She's retired now, and since then I've been looking for a good way to earn money working at home. Wealthy Affiliate looks like a good bet. I look forward to learning more and communicating with members.

I enjoy art, music (love Baroque music, the Gipsy Kings and Celtic Thunder), learning about history and other cultures, movies, classic TV shows, and traveling car-free around the Los Angeles area, where I live.

Hello everyone, FYI as a note for the future. I was just browsing in the science toys section on Amazon and noticed that people with online businesses can set up an Amazon Giveaway, like a contest for their customers, where you buy a product and then the customer who wins the contest (I don't know the details of how it works yet) gets the item. Most people starting out online businesses couldn't afford an expensive item, but a Giveaway like this with just one modest item could start the ball rolling. They have a Giveaway e-newsletter you can sign up for, so I signed up.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, you can run contests as part of your business and there are things like rafflecopter.com that can help you with things like this. Sometimes information and help is far more "power" to someone and their business than another gadget though, just something to consider.
Reply
Amanda914 Premium
Thanks, Kyle. I will definitely keep that in mind, that information and help to the people in our audience are top priority. Amanda

Reply
Amanda914 Premium
Thanks, upsgirl! I haven't started the training yet because I want to reply to everyone, which takes time. ;-) Plus, I have a modest work assignment as a Program Monitor for NHK WORLD TV, an English-language Japanese TV station. I watch 6 shows a month and do short questionnaire-type reports on them. It's not as easy as it sounds; it takes a lot of thought to do it well. It's a 6 month assignment; at the end of the assignment they send 3,000 Yen per report direct to your bank. They just asked me if I'd like to do it for another 6 months; I just went to a fax place to fax my acceptance. Amanda

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

My name is Steph. I went premium three months ago and have since then built a couple websites, which you can check out on my profile page. I have moved up in the Ranks to 7, so I am now an Ambassador of Wealth Affiliate. I work to offer as much help as you need when first starting out at Wealthy Affiliate.

You will do great, but you will have to work hard and put in the time needed. Please take a moment and familiarize yourself with the platform and begin the training "Get Started Here" (green button on upper left hand corner).

I also have created training which you can check out here. https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/stephhill/training

If you get stuck and have questions, let me know and I will help. You can also ask the community at large for some assistance.

Happy you are here!! Welcome to a new chapter towards your personal and financial freedom.

All the best to you,
Steph

Hello Steph, thank you for your encouraging words. At first I didn't intend to go Premium, but I figure that I will need access to more than the basic training and it will pay off in the end. Best wishes.

Hello Eddy, thanks for all your messages of encouragement and offers of help! I decided to take the step to go premium since I'm a newbie to this kind of business; now I can access more than the basic training and ask questions. Tomorrow is my birthday (that's the 914 in my profile name) so I hope it will be the start of a good year. Best wishes, Amanda

Amanda914 Premium
Hi Eddy, thanks for your words of encouragement! I have a question regarding a niche I thought of. I know I'll get more info about niches when I get into the training, but I'd like your opinion. In my profile I say that I enjoy traveling car-free in the Los Angeles area. I thought that might be a good idea for a niche, since too many people repeat the cliché "You have to have a car in L.A." In addition to writing about methods of public transportation, I could post links to products like shoes, hats, day packs, sunblock, water bottles, guide books to the area, etc. Amanda

You're welcome Amanda. I think it's important to finish the training because it will help you determine if this is a good niche. But here's something else you should read to help you make that decision:

Hi Eddy, thanks for checking in. For the first few days I didn't have much time for the site, but now I'm getting into it and have gone up through Lesson 3. I don't think there's any training like this online where you can instantly communicate with so many sincere people. I was stuck trying to think of a niche, as many people are. I went through Lesson 3 last night and couldn't think of a niche, but woke up today and an idea popped into my mind -- science toys and related products for young children. Though I don't have children, I was a kid once and loved those kinds of toys -- Uncle Milton's Ant Farm, Creepy Crawlers, plastic dinosaur set, etc. I still love looking at these kinds of products, and there's so much more available now than there was back then. Several other WA members have liked the idea too. I had thought of niche ideas before but they didn't really excite me; I am getting excited thinking about this idea. Best wishes, Amanda

Hey Amanda ,

I just wanted to follow up and see if you need anything. I see you've already taken action and completed your account profile! That's wonderful! It just goes to show you're able to follow directions and are serious about making this business work! Trust me when I say that's half the battle to success online! So you're part of a rare breed! However I see you haven't upgraded to the premium membership.

If it's because money is tight, I can hook you up. Read the following as you'll learn how others have been able to easily pay for this membership: http://bit.ly/afford_wa

At the end of the day you're obviously an action taker unlike a lot of people that may join this community and fail to do anything. As such you should be rewarded for that. So I wanted to remind you of the special bonus I'm offering you:

HOW TO CLAIM YOUR BONUS
-----------------------------------------------

If you join Premium within the next 4 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 and even the owners of WA (Kyle & Carson) will be able to offer you personal mentoring.

(3) I am going to be giving a special "Diamond Traffic Bonus"

But only if you join in the next 4 days!

You're obviously not required to take advantage of this great offer. But the starter membership can only take you so far. It's clear as day you want to succeed. Otherwise you wouldn't have completed your profile. So I'd like to hook you up with the bonus above!

There is so much more in the way of videos, courses, live chat and private message capabilities that will help you get to the next level quicker. So keep that in mind. In fact, just check out the differences between the starter and premium membership here: I think it will help you see all that you'll get if you take advantage of the bonus and discount I'm offering you. In any event, great job again for taking action and completing your profile!

Keep taking action because every time you do it brings you closer to your success!

Take care,

Eddy with a Y

Welcome to WA Amanda,

Amazing profile Picture!!!

You are in the right place and in good hands. I'm pretty sure you can make it big here!

After 11 weeks, I already built 3 websites. Now I focus my time in improving them to give my visitors a better experience and help to contribute something significant to their lives.

That's how easy it is to learn in WA. Just commit yourself, give time and focus and you will surely achieve your goals here!

Please send me a message if you need some assistance. I am willing to help to the best of my knowledge.

All the Best!

Hi, Amanda
Totally agree that how you see youself is the only thing that matters. Yet we are taking the road to go steps further, you see yourself and you become yourself, in your case a real lion. Don't just believe you have seen yourself, take actions to live the life of the self you believe you are.
Lots of fun and success,

Hey Amanda!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate my friend! Just in case you forgot, I am Eddy with a y. LOL We met back on my blog: http://www.WorkAtHomeNoScams.com. I'm happy my babbling didn't scare you away and you had enough trust in me to give WA a shot!

Trust me when I say you made the right decision and you're going to love this community! You're on your way to building a long term online business like yours truly did because of the training and support here at WA!

That said, let's get you started on the right note so you can get the most out of your time here. As a new member, the first thing you should do is fill out your account profile. Don't even trip, it's really easy to do. All it consists of is the following simple steps:

(1) Add your profile image
(Can be anything you want. Just don't make it dirty. lol)

(2) Add a personal description.
(Let us know about yourself and why you're here at WA!)

That's it!

If you do these simple steps it will really show you're serious about learning how to succeed at this business and people will be more likely to answer your questions and help you if they see you've taken the two minutes to complete your profile. If you need help on doing this, watch the following video: Next you should definitely check out the "Get Started Here" training. This is going to get you up and running with your own website very quickly and has a lot of really easy to follow video training that is going to help this whole "process" make sense.

Here is a direct link to this training: If at any time you need help, just ask. There are a ton of good folks here within the community that will be more than happy to help you out and within the first 7 days of your Starter membership you are going to have access to Live Chat, so make sure you check that out. Just remember people are more inclined to help you if you've completed your account profile as described above.

I also have sweet bonus for those of you that are "action takers"...

HOW TO CLAIM 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 and even the owners of WA (Kyle & Carson) will be able to offer you personal mentoring.

(3) I am going to be giving a special "Diamond Traffic Bonus"

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

Anyways, I thought I would personally welcome you. As you can see I don't just promote WA, I'm actually here as a member waiting to help you! So reach out to me. Start by filling out your profile. Don't be shy. I won't bite.

Again, it's great having you as a member of WA! It truly shows you're serious about earning a legitimate living online and WA will show you the process I've used to be successful!

I look forward to reading your profile and hearing from you. So go fill that out now. I really want to know more about you so I can help you achieve your goals!

Speak to you soon Amanda!

Your buddy,
Eddy with a Y. (Get it right. LOL)

P.S. If you have any doubts that this business is real or if it will work for you, check this little article out: When you see what companies are already involved in this business, it's going to be eye opening!
