About AndreasS
Joined September 2014
Hi!

I'm a 38 years old Norwegian guy living just outside Oslo with my lovely wife and 3 kids. My interests range from photography, drones, 3d, animation, computer graphics, VR, SEO, affiliate marketing, gadgets, gaming, and more.

I work as a Creative Technology Manager at a small engineering company. I make animations, illustrations and do light engineering tasks of our new and existing projects.

One of my hobbies is photography and I have a huge interest in Urban Exploring, also known as urbex. I visit and document old abandoned buildings. This hobby involves a lot of traveling and adventure which I love. I have my own site dedicated to the called LeftToDecay.com.

My newest website is about drones and photography. Visit the site athttps://airbuzz.one/ if you want. Feel free to leave a comment if you want. :)

I have also written an article about the subject on Street Articles: http://www.streetarticles.com/photography/what-is-urban-exploration

I have this profile on Flickr with most of my pictures: https://www.flickr.com/photos/norue/.

When I write this, I'm very new in internet marketing. I have gone through a lot of the training in a short time, and I am satisfied with my own work. I think online marketing is really interesting, and that makes it easy to learn. WA is a fantastic site with great people.

My dream is to work from home full time with this. Only time will show if I manage to reach that goal or not.

Update 1: After 50 days I made my first 6 sales on Amazon! Hurray. :)
Update 2: After 2.5 months I have made 26 sales on Amazon.
Update 3: After 5 months I have made 44 sales on Amazon.com, 1 on Amazon.co.uk and 1 through Shareasale.
Update 4: After 6 months 59 Amazon sales and 1 Shareasale.
Update 5: After 11 months 179 Amazon sales and 1 Shareasale
ONE YEAR WITH WA: 221 Amazon sales and 1 Shareasale!
Update 6: 13 months 387 Amazon.com sales, 10 Amazon.co.uk sales, and 2 Shareasale sales.A

And so it goes. Christmas 2015 had a massive boost in sales compared to the previous months. And in January 2016 I got my first check above $1000 from Amazon. Read about it on the blog. :) A few months later $2500. Now I've earned more than $7000 just with Amazon.com.

Update 7: Dec 2016 - $5600+ from Amazon.com alone in one month.
Update 8: April 2017 - Total of $17100 just from Amazon + other places.

Follow me on Pinterest, Google+ and Twitter and I follow you back.

2018: New site about my drone photography and drones: www.airbuzz.one.

Have a great day!

Best regards,

Andreas

Hey Andreas!

Not sure if you check your WA messages but just wanted to say that a few days ago I was re-reading your success story posts and I also came across this post: I also realized that we have a similar niche, so I just decided to PM you :)

WOW! You are a legend! I am inspired by your milestone and timeline. Question: So you are focused on Amazon and Shareasale? I've noticed that you have a note on your websites: Saying that you are affiliate associates from Amazon - does this help to make a sale? Do we need to let readers know as a disclaimer? Thanks for your answer in advance.

Thanks for the comment! I focus mostly on Amazon at the moment.

It is always wise to make the audience know that pages have affiliate links. In Norway it is against the marketing law not to let people know. It is because it is a sort of advertising. People should know if they click an affiliate link here. I'm not 100% sure what the laws in US and such say about affiliate link disclaimers.

Hi AndreasS, I have a quick query I hope you can help me with? I am in Australia so therefore not in the US like you. I am just at the point of registering with Amazon as a member but I'm a bit confused about the tax stuff, do I need a US TIN? Do you have one, or is there an easier way to do it?

thanks in advance

Hi, I'm in fact in Norway. But I also needed a ITIN number for the tax. The US and Norway have a tax agreement. I got my ITIN (or TIN, Tax Identifier Number) from the US Embassy in Norway, Oslo. I visited with my passport and filled out a form many years ago.

So I guess you have to visit, or call, the US Embassy in Australia and ask how to proceed.

Hope that helps.

Hej Andreas!

Vad trevligt att träffa dig! By coincidence I found one of your WA-blogs. So nice to meet a scandinavian neighbour! Well, I come from Sweden, but since many years I live in Switzerland.

I joined WA for about five months ago. My dream is also to be independant and work within the online marketing business. Andreas, I must say you seem to work exemplary! What awesome results you have achieved, congratulations! This really motivates me to go on working towards my goal.

I like your fitnesgadgets site - it's very informative and has got a clear structure. ebutikkportalen is also an interesting site. I can understand that you are successful with these.

Wish you ongoing success!
:-) Pernilla

Hi Andreas,
Thank you soooooo much for putting out your "updates". It really helps a newbie like me be realistic about how this business will likely grow slowly in the beginning but I see your sales went up each month. This isn't a get rich quick process so I know not to get discouraged when I put my website out there and nothing much happens for awhile. This means a lot to me so Thanks again!

Hello Andrew. I'm impressed with your work, and think that I can learn a lot from you. The format of your rich with a niche site is great, I really like it. I don't see the "elegant" theme listed in the WA themes. Where did you get it from? My website is overpowered by my "logo" which fills the top portion of the page. I just want a smallish logo area like you "rich with a niche" logo.

Thanks for following because I'm intrigued by your work, the fascination with abandoned buildings--very real and different.

Hi!

Thanks for the comment. The theme on my Rich With A niche site is called DIVI, and is made by Elegant Themes. I don't think it's in the list of WA themes. I have bought it because I think it is really cool, versatile and easy to work with.

Link to the theme: https://www.elegantthemes.com/gallery/divi/

I have a few a couple of other sites with DIVI, like my Norwegian site: http://www.minegensjef.no/

Hello Andreas! Congrats on your success! So encouraging! Love the look and feel of your website newfitnessgadgets. It's very well put together. I'm taking notes! It's interesting to find out that you are into 3D animation! So is my 10 year old son! He is obsessed with animation and wants to learn how to do Blender 3D animations so bad! I'm going to be ordering him this program that teaches kids and teens how to make a 3D Blender movie. I'm ordering it from Amazon. It's called YouthDigital. Whenever I order it, I will go to your newfitnessgadgets site and click on your amazon link and order it through there so that you can get the commissions for it. I'm happy to support your efforts my friend! Can't wait for the day until I can do the same thing as you! Wishing you nothing but the best and continued success in all your endevours!

Hi, Sarah! Thanks for the kind comment. Blender is a great way to start learning 3D animation. :) It is free, open source and has become a great tool for computer graphics. In my work, I use 3dsmax Design, which is a 3D animation software from Autodesk. It's possible to try out a 30 days trial if he wants to try it. Or just use Blender in the beginning. Great choice.

Hi, Andreas. I may have already said thanks for the follow but neglected to hit the green button to acknowledge that I had followed you back. So today is the day I am catching up with all those I have forgotten.

After reading your profile, I can see that you are doing quite well and your earnings continue to grow. I hope that continues to be the case, (I will read a couple of your most recent blogs), and wish you continued success in the future.

Wayne
