About BeMyExpert
Joined October 2016
I woke up each morning in October and November of 2006 and saw something between $400 and $600 dollars had been deposited into my bank account.

True story, years ago... I worked with a neighbor, Toni, who had been selling e-books online.

It started as a simple e-book on how to repair your own credit score.

Toni had previously purchased 3 or 4 e-books on credit repair for her own personal needs, and tried them out. Some of it worked, and some of it didn't, and so Toni began to see the need to update and correct the information in these e-books.

She added in her own personal online research, experiences and successes (failures, too!) in order to update and simplify the credit repair process. She developed a better, more accurate e-book than she had ever bought.

When she showed it to me, I was quite convinced Toni was not only a self-made EXPERTon credit repair, but she had developed the BEST e-book on how to repair your own credit.

(So fantastic- I must add -that I myself dramatically increased my own credit scores with all three bureaus!)

So why did I join WA?

Very simple. We were making $400 to $600 dollars a day selling her one product online. We sold it for 39. 99 with a 100% money back guarantee because we were ONLY trying to help people.

It didn't help, you didn't pay. Or got a refund... no questions!

You see, Toni and I marketed her e-book for about three months before we got distracted. We primarily used paid-for email lists. We were paying for the lists, the can-spam-compliant removal process (lol - anyone remember 2006?), we were even so naïve we paid "server time"... the list goes on.

For 2006 I guess that our overhead, averaged out, wasn't super bad.. it was about $75 per day. Fantastic for a business bringing in 4-6 hundred a night, even when you divide by 2.

Shorten the story, bring it up to 2016?

Sure, I can do that. I'm not a millionaire now because Toni and I brought in a third partner back in 2006 who was meant to expand our business. Remember above where I said we got "distracted"?

Stealing $13,000 dollars is not really helpful when looking to expand a business. That's what this third partner did. He was much less of an expert and he was much more of a thief. I lost a lot more than money on that little adventure, I lost a lot of faith....

However, after 10 years of working for "the man" and knowing I almost made it years ago, there are 2 things I simply cannot avoid knowing:

1) I really enjoyed online being able to provide a useful, tangible product for people who needed it.

2) I need more experts. I need more Toni's, people I can trust.

This realization is why tomorrow, October 23rd, I'll pay for premium and jump on in. After all, this is hour 10 so I'm right on track.

Thanks for reading this far, I hope someday, in some way, you can be my Expert.

In return, I hope that some skill, some talent, some suggestion I might have to offer, will help you to be even more successful than you already are!

Let's help each other be great!

Sincerely,

Christian

Awesome Christian! I do remember 2006. I too was involved in that world of marketing, and may have even been your customer.. LOL... So I understand the heartbreak and disappointment. But we have found a new wave of success to ride on and hopefully this time we can surf to the finish line in style.

Best of luck to you

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hi Kyle,

Niche isn't a problem, got handfuls. I'm just following your lessons step by step for now. Keeping my 3 hours per day commitment.

Just finished lesson 1.7, and since it occurs to me that WordPress is at least one CRITICAL element of all of this, I started this morning watching YouTube tutorials before I went to my J.O.B.

I snuck a few in during my J.O.B. breaks, also. Can't wait to finish this basic course and get into the affiliate sign ups, etc. that I know are coming!

Thanks for touching bases, and for this great product!

Awesome Christian, sounds like you are making some good progress. Yeah, Wordpress is the CMS that your website is built off of and you will get more and more proficient with that as you build out your website and go through the training here.

If you need a hand with anything at all moving forward let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

Hello Christian and welcome to Wealthy Affiliates Online business Community. I'm so glad that you made it in. This is the best place to be and I'd like to assure you that you made the best decision by choosing WA.

I'd like you to take a tour around and see what happens here. Again follow keenly the lessons included in Bootcamp level 1. This will ignite your dreams and fuel you up for action. Remember that in WA it's not a 'get rich overnight' instead it's a matter of working hard and total dedication. The more committed you are the more sooner you will make your harvest.

If you wish to ask anything please don't hesitate to do that.

Paul.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate, Christian! I think you’ll find that this is a great place to be a part of! The training is second to none – tons of tutorials, training videos and Entrepreneur Certification courses. The first 10-lesson course is free to Starter Members but it tells you everything you need to know to get your website up and running. You’ve probably been pointed in that direction but here’s the link to the first lesson I highly recommend that you jump into the lesson and course!

I want to take a moment to wish you the very best!

Hi there Christian! Raymond Selda here and I'd like to personally welcome you here in Wealthy Affiliate.

In a few seconds, you're going to earn $129,382.31 by simply pushing a button!

Of course I'm only kidding! haha. :)

Thank you so much for your support and for accepting my invitation to try out WA.

In your stay here, you'll see that building a profitable online business by helping other people is very much possible. We're all here to make some money but just step back for a little and take a deep breath because it's not going to happen very quickly.

There are a lot of things to learn if you're just starting out and it's going to take some time before you understand the whole online marketing picture.

Remember that you will have to take ACTION on the things that you'll learn here. The WA community and myself will always be here if ever you need some help.

Like I've said in my website, the Getting Started course will help you learn the fundamentals of building an online business. You can access the course by clicking the link below. *Be sure to complete your profile and add your photo so you can get more help from the WA community. If you can follow this simple instruction, believe me when I say that you're already on your way to achieving huge success in the future.

Need my 1on1 support? Leave a message on my profile or send me a private message if you're a premium member.

Speaking of premium membership, I highly recommend that you upgrade to premium if you're really serious on building your online empire.

You'll see that the information, tools and support here is 100x worth it. Also the monthly fee is just a small investment when you think about the knowledge you will gain on how to dictate your income.

There's actually a 59% discount on your first month if you upgrade to premium within 7 days (only $19).

I will also give a bonus where you can have a 15min Skype consultation with me. In our session, we can talk about anything that will accelerate your business.

Anyway, I just dropped by to introduce myself and to let you know that WA is serious about your success.

Let me know if you need anything and I hope to see you around.

P.S. Please reply to this message so I know that you're all set. Thanks.

Hello Raymond!

I'm very excited to see you and thanks for welcoming me aboard! I liked your story a lot, and got here through one of your links, so it was great to hear from you immediately.

I'll definitely visit and comment on your profile page as well as take you up on that 15 minute Skype consultation. I will be upgrading to Premium before the deadline, but for now I will start with some training.

Sincerely,
Christian
