About DMcCalister
Joined April 2017
After spending most of my adult life in the corporate world and as a small business owner, professional musician (drummer) an avid student of all kinds of sales and marketing... I was able to turn myself into a decent copywriter (especially when I use a quality editor)... however,

The computer and the Internet has always fascinated me. I created a successful business during the 90's that utilized direct mail marketing and magazine articles.

My magazine articles entitled "Wealth Notes tm" was syndicated in 25 magazines and several newspapers. We also used post card marketing to build subscribers to our monthly magazine entitled Wealth Notes.

We did well, however this is not about how great I am or how successful we were, it is about where I have been and why I decided to join WA.

The Internet and the new "digital economy" - Blogging, Websites , Email, E Books and anything to do with an online business opportunity has peeked my curiosity and has my serious attention today.

I have been a "paper and ink" sales and marketing specialist - knowing that I had better become familiar with - and equip myself with online marketing skills of this new and exciting economic explosion with a wider audience than anything I have ever witnessed before!

Thanks to these wonderful young men who created WA I will be able to learn the necessary skills and gain the knowledge I need to build a "global" online business that I can work on a part time basis anywhere I can get connected to the "net".

Thanks guys for creating this great tool and the community that I'm growing to love so much!

Hello Gary,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I just wrote my 100th training for WA. I have categorized them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Gary, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Gary.

Hey Gary,

Just checking up on you to see how you're doing here at WA.
I can't believe you've been here for nearly a week. What do you think so far?

In my experience newbies tend to have some doubts or fears. So I'd like to address them by having you reading the following: Please read these short articles and let me know if it has addressed some of your concerns. Thanks,

Eddy with a Y.

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! :)

Hey Gary ,

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 give you a special bonus if you're thinking of becoming a premium member.

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

Thanks again Eddy ~ I see you've been here (with WA) for a while now, since I'm really so new to the "digital, online" industry, I need to read all I can, watch all the vids etc. available before making a WA full decision. So far I like what I see, a little too much emphasis on Premium but I understand why, and will get there once I'm totally comfortable here and feel that I can "get behind" promoting you folks. As you age (I have been a serial entrepreneur for over 4 decades now) you take more time with companies, products, services etc. - I also owned and operated a home based business, direct sell, network company during the 90's. You seem to be way ahead of a lot of folks online so I look forward to following and learning from you and the guys at the top.
All the best!

Hey Gary,

A couple of things. 1. You don't have to promote WA at all. It's not about that. That's one niche. As discussed in the training you should be going through here: So hopefully you're not confusing the affiliate bootcamp with what WA is all about.

2. Premium isn't a requirement. It's only pushed as an option for people that decide that they like WA and want to continue getting more help and training because there is a lot more of it that isn't made available to starter members. So hopefully it's not coming off as that. There is no pressure.

3. I think you're going to see very clearly this isn't like the mlms and network companies you've been part of which most focus on getting people to sign up under them to make money instead of actually promoting the products they claim to sell. You're also going to see you're working with legitimate companies like amazon that offer products and services that people already trust instead of trying to convince people to purchase from companies they don't know. So I imagine you're going to learn a lot and like this business model a lot more since it's not reliant on recruiting family members and such.

In any event, I'll continue to check up on you. I'm here if you need me.

Appreciate your time Eddy. I'm here to learn. I love marketing in any form and know that the digital economy is the way to go these days.

You have the experience in this format and I'll let you guys show me the way without further comment on how you market.

You and I could have some amazing conversations.

I have spent four decades in the network marketing industry. I know that affiliate marketing is "the new MLM" and falls beautifully in between direct selling and network marketing models.

Most people would love to have a "residual income" but are unwilling to do the work it takes to reach their goals.

I plan to become a Premium member. I was learning as much as I could from Jay Kubassek and Stuart Ross until I saw what they were doing and who they were looking for... your article was excellent on them and their program.

I was impressed with the way you told the story about them without being negative, just factual. This company makes more sense and seems to be much more affordable to the masses.

I have also looked closely at the "independents" - bloggers, who seem to go it alone and have not joined companies that do the hosting, training, yada - yada - yada.

Do you think (with the years of experience you have) that working under an umbrella like WA is better and more lucrative than going it alone?

I don't need to earn a fortune Eddy, I was one of those MLM'ers who did well, earning 7 figures as a distributor and as a 10 year company owner, but realize that MLM is a dying marketing model especially in the US.

I want to help people earn a living at home, always did and I know you do too, I can read between the lines.

I am no longer involved with MLM. Is this all you do? You do it really well, I think you have a great handle on this.

Thanks again Eddy for all your help, sorry for such a long missive today, but I do everything in a serious way and since you are the only one replying to my questions (nobody from the company, Kyle etc., has returned my chat requests).

That's OK, I get it. They must have a lot of people to tend to.

My God richly bless you Eddy!

All the best,

Hey Gary,

It's great you've had such great success with MLMs. I definitely wouldn't call affiliate marketing the "NEW MLM". The only similarity is that they're a form of marketing. But they're very different than what I've seen and experienced with other MLMs. I'm only pointing this out because I've seen where a lot of former MLM folks are trained to view everyone as a potential customer and engage in some overly aggressive and in some case shady tactics just to fill their downline.

As you said, you appreciated my approach which is a lot more laid back and breaking down facts and just providing alternative options. And the other important aspect is with affiliate marketing people are coming to you via google as you found my site when you were researching that company. Whereas with most MLMs you're chasing down prospects. So I think you're going to really enjoy the change of pace. You may just need to adjust some of the MLM mindset to fit this business.

In regards to your other questions.

1. For many years I did it alone. I tried to piece things together from various sources and I did ok. But a lot of times you'd get conflicting information or wasn't get the one on one support that you need. So when I found WA I thought it was awesome that everything was in one place. And now it's gotten even better because you literally don't have to go anywhere for things like hosting, domains, etc. It's really a one stop shop. And you're not tied here. If you decide you want to transfer your site and business else where you could. But the owners are and have been committed to growing WA. I've personally met them several times: so I know they're solid guys with similar values so I feel very comfortable building my business here.

2. I have multiple streams of income. I never like having all my eggs in one basket. So I have other ways to earn besides this. But it all adds up and helps.

3. I'm surprised "No one" has answered your questions. That's not the norm. I know the owners can be busy sometimes but eventually they get back to folks. I do have some tips on getting questions answered here that you may want to follow: In any event, continue to take your time going through the community. Hopefully you find that it's the right fit for you. I'll continue to check up on you.

Thanks again big guy! Sure appreciate all your input and help. I spend an hour or so each am on this, going through all the training and your help made sense about the one-stop shop concept.
I'm the guy who reads everything and watches all the vids. I also take action and ask a lot of questions... I did get a reply from Kyle but it was all about jumping to Premium, so at least I know any of my prospects will be encouraged to go Premium (a lot) too (LOL)
All the best!
