About EdwinBernard
Joined December 2018
Hi fellow entrepreneurs I’m glad to have found this place. For the longest time I’ve tried to build a business and struggled to be successful. My hope is to succeed with the help of Wealthy Affiliate.

I am a cockpit display engineer by profession, now retired. I got stung by the Great Recession ten years ago and lost all my retirement savings. It’s tough living on pensions and social security alone so I’m highly motivated to build an online business to provide additional sustainable income.

My hobbies include playing the piano, honing my communication and leadership skills through Toastmasters International and managing my YouTube channel that promotes young musical talent: http://www.youtube.com/user/netzoomer . I look forward to building new professional relationships here.

You absolutely can and you will achieve these goals (and likely beyond) Edwin! Dedicate yourself to your goals and take action on what you learn here. Action leads to success and I have never seen anyone fail that doesn't quit.

I look forward to working with you and do let me know if you need a hand along the way. :)

I did subscribe to an excellent group similar to WA several months ago. Although I went through the courses I felt alone. If there was a community I failed to make the connection. WA is 180 degrees opposite. I am thrilled how welcoming and helpful everyone is. I am thrilled to have made WA a start of a new year. Thanks!

Hi Frank and Tina, just to let you know I completed Level 2 today. I have just figured out that I can use my two screens to have my dashboard open on one and Kyle's video playing on the other. I can stop him when I need to take action on his advice.

I noticed you are ranked 402 today. That is awesome considering you joined less than a year!

I wish you both much success.

Edwin

Hi Edwin, welcome to WA!

My name is Tim, you might remember me from my website Affiliate UNguru.

Just stopping by to say hello and to see if there's anything I can do to help you get started?

If so, just reply to this message and I'll get back to you asap :)

I also wanted to give you the link to start your training: This is where I recommend you start your training. Everything you need to know is explained within these lessons and there are tasks to complete as you go too (which I also recommend doing).

I'm super excited to share this with you, because this is the exact training I followed myself to go from newbie to full time income online!

I know you are going to love this.

The last thing I wanted to mention is that it's totally ok to ask lots of questions. In fact, the more questions you ask the better!

Because when you ask questions, you have the rare opportunity to learn from people who have achieved some incredible success, by following the exact same path you are on right now.

This is extremely powerful stuff and it's one of the biggest reasons why WA stands head and shoulders above ANY other platform I have ever tried.

I remember when I first started here I asked LOTS of questions (even though I was worried some of them were 'dumb questions' lol). And I'm glad I did, because the value I got from being able to learn from people who were already successful was absolutely priceless.

It really was a major turning point for me, and it can be for you too.

So I encourage you to ask lots of questions and get amongst this awesome community as much as possible. The more you engage with the WA community, the more you will learn, and the more successful you will become!

Anyways Edwin, it's wonderful to have you as part of the WA community and I wish you the very best of success on your journey here!

Cheers,
Tim

P.S I also wanted to give you the heads up on some cool bonuses I've got lined up for you, if you upgrade to a Premium membership within your first 7 days!

★ Bonus #1 | Special Discount
You will get over 61% off your first month Premium membership (from $49 to $19)... which is an absolute steal! Getting everything you need to build a profitable online business for such a low price is simply a no brainer.

★ Bonus #2 | Live Case Study
Exclusive access to a Live case study that walks you through the EXACT process of creating a profitable niche website- right in front of your eyes- over the shoulder. This one bonus alone could change everything for you, as you are seeing the entire process in action from "idea to profit"- step-by-step, click by click. This case study is not available anywhere else so it's very high value stuff.

★ Bonus #3 | I Will Personally Help You Choose a Niche
One of the biggest stumbling blocks beginners face is choosing a niche. But it doesn't have to be that way. Because I'm personally going to walk you through choosing a profitable niche. Based on YOUR passion or interest! No more guesswork and no more 'fear' you've chosen the wrong niche. I am personally going to be working with you to help you find a winning niche!

★ Bonus #4 | 1-on-1 Coaching and Mentoring
I know it can be challenging when you're first starting out. So as a bonus on top of everything else I've just mentioned, I'm going to offer you personal and private access to me! I will be your mentor, your coach. I will be there for you every step of the way to make sure you reach and exceed your goals. I started right where you are now and worked my way to a full time income online. Which means I know what works and I know how to help you succeed. I am uniquely positioned to help you achieve your goals, in the shortest amount of time possible. So this is going to be a HUGE help to you going forward. Honestly, this ONE bonus alone is worth MANY times more than the cost of the Premium membership. This is going to put you in the best shape possible to achieve real success online.

There's no pressure to upgrade if you're not ready yet. I just wanted to give you the heads up now, so you know what you will get if you do decide to become a Premium member within the next 7 days. Talk soon!

Hi Tim,
Glad to hear from you. I already learned one tip from you on how to connect with interested prospects. By getting me to click on the review of the Agora program I was tempted to purchase. Your analysis made sense to me because I’ve experienced many upsell actions from them and others. Although I’ve never purchased the upsell, a lot of small $39.99 teaser purchases soon added up. I am now done with responding to copy where this is clearly the case.
I am currently going through the My Leads System Pro basic program where I pay $137 every 3 months. My next installment is due in January. I wanted to find leads for two opportunities I’m vested in. My Legal Shield network marketing program and my solar panel business. These are two niches that I would like to discuss with you.
I am also a musician, have been since a kid, and I’d like to find a niche in that area.
I also love cooking and adding food as another niche would also make sense to me.
Any advice on these choices would be much appreciated. I have no idea how to find businesses in these fields that offer affiliate programs. I’ll need help.
Ok, I have a decision to make before my 7 days expire. To select MA over MLSP. MLSP are very strong on leads building training but I find their business building training too confusing. My first impression of MA is that it addresses all aspects of building an online affiliate marketing business. So did MLSP but I never got to those areas yet. Their program has lengthy training modules that confused me. I am going to devote intensive time gong through the MA system in my first week to help me decide if this is right for me. If so I will drop MLSP and upgrade to Premier in MA. I like those bonuses and want to take advantage of them.
Sorry for this lengthy message. Looking forward to your response.
BTW I loved your review of Agora as well as how you introduced MA in the link that I clicked. Very clever lol!
Cheers!

Hi Edwin,

These ideas can definitely work. What I would suggest is asking yourself some questions:

- What are you passions or interests?
- What do you know something about or what have you researched?
- What problems have you faced, or are facing, and what solutions have you found?

These are all good starting points. And in doing this, your goal is to find a topic that you are interested in and one that you can add value to.

So try to think about *which group of people you are trying to help* with your website.

Starting your research around a passion or interest is always a good idea, because there are vast opportunities to profit within practically ANY niche you can think of. So it makes sense to focus on a topic that interests you.

Even if you can give me a broad idea, I can help you come up with a profitable niche idea from there.

Let me know, so we can get your site up and running asap! :)

Hi Tim,

My passion is music. It encompasses all aspects of music involving creating, performing, creating videos, editing, and home video and audio equipment to watch it all. A short list of products required is musical instruments, photographic and video cameras, drones with cameras, mics, displays and speakers. My music YouTube Channel has over 13,000 subscribers and has accumulated about 8 million views. I have free access to the YouTube Space in LA to make and edit videos.

Ok, please give me guidance on how to parlay this niche into my website. I already have a website using my name that is a place holder Can I use that? Or would a website with a name connected with my niche be more appropriate?

Happy New Year to you and your family Tim. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Cheers!

Edwin

Wow that is very impressive Edwin, nice work.

The music niche is massive, so there are MANY avenues you could explore here. My thinking is that you really want to focus on an aspect of the niche that people are wanting to learn something about, rather than people who just want to listen to music, because otherwise there's not much point of starting an affiliate site. You really want to create an information rich site that helps your audience learn stuff.

So for example:

- Learn how to play __ instrument
- Learn how to create __ music
- Improving your on-stage performance
- Creating music videos
- Music editing and production

Any one of these could become a great niche for you. The key is to kind of 'niche down' into something a bit more focussed than just 'music' because that's too broad on it's own.

Ask yourself, what would your existing audience be most interested in learning more about, other than just listening to more of your music?

You could use your YouTube channel to grow your website audience and visa versa, so you are actually in an excellent position here, you just need to make sure you keep the flow of relevance between the two.

You could use an existing site but to be honest it's going to be way easier to start again because I can almost guarantee the sites will be very different. You are creating an information rich blog, one that is designed to inform and engage, and one that will bring you traffic through search engines like Google when done correctly. So I'd follow the training and start from scratch personally, but it's up to you.

Happy new year and by all means reach out if you have any other questions :)

Tim
