I am a longtime freelance illustrator and editor who has recently been struggling to make an adequate living via my websites and social networking. A day job has usually been involved to fill in the blanks. I was a home-based mortgage loan officer for a number of years until the financial crash, and then decided to go for my freelance career full-time.
It seemed that so much time was required just learning how to bring in business via my websites and social networking, that I barely had time to do the projects I was bringing in. And the websites were NOT doing their job. My time spent there was being wasted. I got clients from networking on Twitter and through friend referrals. But they were not enough.
Then, I somehow bumped into Wealthy Associates and realized I was missing a very strategic piece of the puzzle: How to build a website that reaches many thousands of potential customers. I see that this is exactly what I need and I am going for it as the answer to making everything I have been doing work for me, and then some!
Not only will I be able to improve my existing websites to attract clients, but I definitely want to expand my income through affiliate marketing. When all the hard work is completed and my current websites plus the WA websites are up and rolling, I will be able to choose my clients wisely, and complete high quality projects without so much pressure.
The atmosphere in the WA community is upbeat and inspiring. The idea of actually making the internet work for me is a heady one, and the people and training available to me here are providing the answer to the problem in such a positive way. The pay-it-forward attitude is amazing ... it seems everyone from newbies on up has something of value to bring to the table to help their fellow members.
Also, I have some very special interests I would like to promote such as organic products and food, holistic healthcare information and merchandise, Paleo diet health benefits and cookbooks plus the creative wares of various artisans.
My blog, Mavor Arts, profiles my own work plus that of other artists from around the world. All of my professional artwork can be accessed on the sidebar of my website: http://www.mavorarts.com
I am enjoying working with Wealthy Affiliates and meeting my trainers and associates very much.
