About Cirian
Joined September 2015
In a previous life I was a PlayStation developer at Sony Europe. There we had a marketing department handle that side of the business for us, so the developers could concentrate on making the products (great video games).

When my Sony career came to an end, I joined the indie scene developing video games in the Unity engine. Now I had no marketing department. That was when it hit home that I knew very little about marketing!

From being something that was handled in the background at Sony, it's become the very center of my career today. In many ways it's the ultimate massively multiplayer video game, with tangiable rewards for success—not just in wealth, but in friendships and human connections.

As I've gotten older I've noticed myself go through transformations. I've become less selfish in terms of what I want out of my career. I see that proper marketing isn't just about making a killing, it's about bringing people together for mutual benefit—developing trust and spreading happiness.

There is a fascinating art in doing that. A good deal means a happy seller, a happy buyer, and a happy person (the affiliate) who arranged the meeting. A great affiliate can make a difference to a lot of people. All this by making the right introduction.

WA is very much about teaching this art and the community here sets a great example with their generous attitude. I've learned a lot from people kind enough to teach and I'm willing to share whatever I glean along my own journey. Good luck everyone!

How are things going today? Just wanted to pop in to see how things are going with you thus far and how your website/niche is coming along.

Hope you are rocking it Robert and of course (and as always) I am in your corner if you ever need anything!

PS. Today is my last day for Premium bonuses, if you are interested in getting them make sure you upgrade today.

Cirian Premium
Hi Kyle,

First off, thanks for all the great training you've provided for free. I've already learned a lot having reached the end of Course 1.

My website currently looks like this: (I can't post links yet so I've written it out)

pocketmyriad dot siterubix dot com slash about-me

I have a domain ready to go at pocketmyriad dot xyz, which is currently pointing at my siterubix version. I know you recommended the dot com, but I fell in love with the dot xyz! :)

As I previously mentioned, I had an eye on the yearly membership and I've just started looking at the upgrade from free to premium. If I take up the $19 offer for the first month, can I set the renewal onto the yearly?

Thanks for everything,

Robert.

edit: I found the yearly option, thanks :)

Hey Robert,

I forgot to mention the other day that I am going to still be offering you my awesome bonuses if you join within the next 4 days.

Here are the bonuses that you are going to be getting:

(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. Where else can you access the CEO of the company for help?
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well Robert and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)

Just heading out for a bit here, but do leave me a message if you need a hand with anything. You should have Premium communication back for an additional 7 days now, so hit me up when you get a chance Robert!

Quick Hint:

Do not post questions directly on your profile page because they will be missed if you don't have many followers. Rather use the "live chat" and connect directly with members who will give you an instant answer to problems you might have.

Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions - This community has some awesome individuals that will help out gladly.

Hi, glad to meet me, lol.

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for following me. I’m pretty impressed with WA training and I think we have found a gold mine of information. Hmmm, seems like geniuses like us tend to gather in the same place (lol).

You made a good choice coming to WA. I started making money online in 2004. WA wasn't around back then. I had to learn from scratch. What took me 2 years to accomplish online, you will be able to do in a couple of months if you are new to affiliate marketing.

The wealth of knowledge here in the tutorials and the help from fellow WA members is exceptional. I have never met a bunch of like-minded people who are so eager to help.

When I came to WA in February, I was skeptical. Seen enough online scams in my time. I searched high and low for "the catch." There was none. I learned WA is legitimate. There is no pressure to upsell me more products or services. That was refreshing.

Anyway Robert, here’s wishing you all my best for your success with online marketing. Please feel free to send me a private message if there is anything I can do for you. You may also want to check out my WA profile blog posts as there is some interesting and informative information there. Here’s a little inspiration: Update: I wanted to mention that all my recent posts on my website get ranked in the top 5 for my keyword or keyword phrase. So study the tutorials here at WA. They hold the clues for getting top ranking for your web pages.

Yeah, my first impressions here are firstly, that the community is strong and genuine. People are very generous with their knowledge and I hope in a time, I'll be giving back and sharing a success story or two as well ;)

Also thank you for your blog posts. I'm getting a lot of ideas here. Actually just the encouragement alone makes a big difference.

Have fun,

Robert.

Hi Christene,

I read your review of WA (in fact I read a few!) and I've been very impressed by the community spirit and the passion of seasoned members. I've already learned a few things from your sites since I am new to the marketing scene and you are an effective ambassador. Clearly you love this stuff and it rubs off!

As for myself I'm an ex-PlayStation developer turned indie videogame developer. When I worked at Sony, I was part of the development team and the marketing department would handle all of that side - so marketing remained a dark art as far as I was concerned ;) When I went indie, my lack of marketing skill became a clear weakness and that has sparked my interest and is the reason I am writing this now.

I confess I've been looking to do something other than just be a developer for the last few years. The idea of exploring niches is fascinating. One of the reviewers I read (Marcus) was into vegetarian Thai food as was able to turn that passion into an income, which in the end made total sense... lots of other people like Thai food too. So anyway, I'll begin the Get Started and heed your mantra about not being idle!

I hope to make a few friends here and since I joined WA via you, I thought I should say "hello!" right away.

Have fun,

Robert.

PS: feel free to bug me about English whenever you like - if I'm around to help I will.

Hi Robert. Hope you had a great week.

Apologies for the delayed reply. Tax season over here and so time consuming to file papers and draw up spreadsheets. Hope I am forgiven?

Yes, I do love marketing, always found it interesting, hence the reason why I have no problem filling up my website. I always recommend that people create websites on topics that they love or feel passionate about, makes it easier to do it long term.

The fact that you know so much about Playstation is actually a huge advantage. It is an evergreen niche with lots op opportunities. Believe it or not, at some point I created a website about PlayStation game reviews, however, since I am not a big game player, I decided to let it be and move on. The only game I play once a while is Grand Turismo thus not worth the effort. In addition, I have created quit a few other niche websites as well because the completion and traffic looked good, ended up closing them as well because I lost interest.

Bottom line, be sure to pick a niche that you have an interest in and have some knowledge about, will make it easier to market.

I am sure that you will make lots of friends here on WA, friendly community with members always willing to offer a helping hand, hence the reason why I recommend it above other programs.

You know where to find me, please do not hesitate to give me a shout if you have questions or need advice. Will do my best to help.

Keep up the learning and have an awesome weekend!

Hi Christene,

Nothing to forgive, I'm grateful for your help. It's your time after all and I thank you for it!

I brainstormed a list of niches. Today I picked one that should last a few years, it seems a good starting point. It's really interesting you say about niches you had and let go of, because I also imagined a certain fluidity. Ideally I suppose I'd find something that would last and last whatever the times, like babies, food, houses etc... or marketing like you have.

For now I am trying not to overcomplicate my choice, that seems to be a strong message I'm getting from the discussions. Not being too broad or non-specific. So I'll give my first niche a shot, see how that goes, and learn as much as I can along the way. I've found peoples' blogs here very interesting, they're so free with their knowledge and experience. It's stuff like that that keeps me grounded, which is good. Motivated and inspired too!

Thanks again Christene and enjoy your weekend.

Robert.
