About EntreGold
Joined October 2016
Hi, my name is Darren, I'm a 45-year-old male from the city of Manchester, England, I have a 13-year-old son who Is quite naturally my world.

I was introduced to the world of "Online Marketing" by accident, well, when I say accident I mean I was frustrated as I'm sure many people are with life, tired of enduring the arrogance of a boss while knowing that someone else had control over the majority of my time, and then realizing a j.o.b will never really provide the lifestyle and long-term security for my family that is vital for our health and general wellbeing, something I know many people can relate to.

So I started surfing the Internet but instead of going directly to the usual social platform, I'm sure you can guess which one I'm referring to, started searching for something more and finding scam after scam, buying product after product and then soon began feeling overwhelmed by information overload, and I know it sounds like a cliche but really suffering from "shiny object syndrome", yes, I believe it is a condition.

So eventually I came across Wealthy Affiliate, and have to say I am impressed, in fact, I think the word "impressed" is an understatement. I've been searching for something genuine, just something real that doesn't promise a bunch of bs, or as the saying goes, (all fluff and no substance), anyway, you know where I'm coming from.

W.A are definitely like a breath of fresh air in my opinion because they're bringing something fresh to the table, something different, a "no-nonsense approach" to Marketing.

My Background:

I have studied on a Foundation course in Art @ College, then went on to do Art & Design where I specialized in textiles, however, since then have had many jobs but within the past 12 years have studied the basics of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and have also studied Urbanization and the origins of Poor Houses in the 1800's, then worked in the Community Sector working with Clients who struggle with drug and alcohol addiction.

I have to say that I gained a great deal of insight into life and what makes people do what they do, and a sense of satisfaction in knowing I had made a difference to someone's life. I think I've always been this way where I enjoy helping people.

Now I intend to do that but just in a slightly different way through Wealthy Affiliate by possibly promoting programs that focus heavily on "Personal Growth and Development" to significantly improve the quality of people's lives, and will probably be promoting "Educational Courses" that teach the dynamics and various aspects of "Marketing".

I have a strong desire to succeed and also looking forward to talking with many people here, building new relationships while sharing ideas.

To your SUCCESS!!
EntreGold's Goals 3
Money Goals
After reading members post's I am under the impression that for most people it can take two or three months to get their website up and running, if not longer, so I'm going to refrain from saying I want to earn x,y and z within a week because I know realistically this won't happen.

There are also some unknown factors at this very moment to take into consideration when coming up with numbers.

Assuming I go down the Affiliate route, which is the intended way I have chosen to take, there is possibly information like how much commissions are earned per product/unit sold, and on average how much paying traffic can I generate per day, week or month.

I know some elements are to a large extent random so any figure I come up with I'm sure is subject to change.

Question 1: In the short term I would be happy to earn $500 per month. I think this will meet my desires expectation and then some because it will be a significant milestone, I will have proven to myself that I can make this pay, my first online commission.

Question 2: I would be ecstatic to earn $10,000 per month or more but realise this will also be dependent on how much money I can invest into quality traffic sources, and since I don't have a lot of it this goal will probably take longer than I would like, maybe four to five years if not longer to achieve.

I know that ten thousand dollars per month eventually will have a dramatic affect on my lifestyle. I used a free online currency converter to calculate exactly how much in GBP this amounts to at the very moment of typing here, it adds to £8197.09p. Of course, currencies are prone to fluctuation and there are other factors to consider.

I know that when striving to achieve a larger monthly payout it is a numbers game because it will be much easier to achieve ten thousand dollars by selling one or two high ticket products at say five thousand dollars each, than it would be to sell over two hundred products at a cost of $49 dollars, but I know that I would have to pay a significant amount for the right to sell the high end product.

Question 3: I can dedicate at least 36 hours per week to the business but it may become more, I will be making a note of my daily routine from here on in so I can figure out what I do and when to see if there are changes I can make.

Last but not least, I will be giving this everything I've got, I'm going to the top with this and I wish everyone here at Wealthy Affiliate all the success that you! desire, you're worth every penny.

Good Luck!!

The thing about online success that I have come to learn is that there is room for ALL of us within the online world. There is no marketplace that is bigger and there is nowhere that represents this kind of opportunity, regardless of your niche, passions and interests (and it only continues to grow!!)

Take action on the training here at WA, immerse yourself within the awesome and helpful community here at WA... and ask for help when you need it. You will be well on your way to achieve your goals Darren!

Thank you for the response Kyle, I know I've said it before but your feedback really does mean a lot to me.

That's one of the things that I like about this industry, you're not restricted in any way because what can be achieved seems to be limitless.

On a completely different note, I would like to say congratulations on the new addition to your family Kyle, children really do make our lives so much richer. :-),

I have had a lot of time to think about what really matters when it comes to working with someone, and honestly, I like the way you interact with people who read your information. Your passion is obvious and I see you believe in a no b.s approach, this is very important to me.

Hey Darren, when you first joined Wealthy Affiliate through me I mentioned a bonus if you upgrade to premium within the first seven days. I just wanted to let you know that I'm now giving that bonus to all members regardless of what day they upgrade, so if you decide to take the leap and get really serious about your internet business and working through the lessons here at WA, I'll make sure to send it your way as soon as you upgrade. I hope everything is going well! As always, let me know if you need anything.

Hey Darren, how's everything coming along now that you've been a member for a few days? I hope you've found your way into the "Get Started Here" training toward the top of the menu on the left and that you're enjoying yourself so far!

Some people gravitate towards the "Affiliate Bootcamp" training which is something I don't recommend right off of the bat if you've never made money in internet marketing before. I have a detailed blog post covering this topic if it's something you're wrestling with and you'd like me to send you the link.

I know that may be a bit confusing, but if you have any questions at all don't hesitate to ask! I hope you're enjoying your time here so far :)

Hey Darren, I was just scrolling over a few things in my dashboard and saw that you signed up a few days ago but haven't completed your profile yet. Is there anything I can help you with? I hope you've at least enjoyed a little bit of the content and community that's come together here!


If you get a couple of minutes, completing your profile will help you get A LOT more out of Wealthy Affiliate. People are much more likely to interact and engage with you if they can feel that personal connection, so just keep that in mind if you plan on pursuing affiliate marketing and engaging with this community!


Also, here's a free lesson I put together on the 5 Rules for Succeeding in Affiliate Marketing: http://youtu.be/p3iYfoy4SOQ


That will take less than 5 minutes to watch, and should be VERY helpful as you continue pursuing affiliate marketing.


Best of luck to you and, again, let me know if I can answer any questions you have!

Hey Darren! I wanted to start you off with a quick note that could SIGNIFICANTLY impact your success with Wealthy Affiliate. Read this entire message if you are serious about being successful in internet marketing (it's lengthy, but I'm not joking when I say that this advice could make or break your entire internet marketing career):


1) You'll need to work consistently and hard. There's going to be a lot to learn in the beginning and you may feel overwhelmed at a point, but keep pressing forward and you'll make it through. It happened to me and every other successful internet marketer at some point, and the only way to become successful in this industry is to push past that overload whenever you get there.


Do yourself a favor and commit to a number of hours that you can work each week right now. It doesn't have to be massive, but it should be more than 10 between evenings and weekends at least. Just remember the more you work each week, the faster you'll learn and draw closer to success.


After you've picked the number of hours you can work each week, commit to working that much for AT LEAST six months - a year would be better. You won't see results immediately in this industry, and being consistent is the key. Pick a number of hours you can work each week, then work those hours for at least six months. It's something you've probably never done in this industry, and this advice alone will make a HUGE difference in your chances at succeeding with internet marketing as long as you take it seriously and STICK WITH IT.


2) I recommend starting off with this training (which you can access with your free account): It just scratches the surface of the MASSIVE amount of helpful content in WA, but you'll get a good "feel" for the teaching style here and begin to see the power of all of the great things they're teaching here at Wealthy Affiliate.


3) DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE COMMUNITY. Two of the best places you can go to for help when you get stuck are the "Live Chat" and the "Classrooms" sections located on the panel to your left. You'll find direction and inspiration through the community here, which is one of the reasons I recommend WA so highly.


4) Finally, you don't ever have to upgrade to the premium account here at Wealthy Affiliate if you don't want to. You'll have limited access using your free account for as long as you wish. HOWEVER, if you're serious about internet and affiliate marketing then you should invest in the premium membership for AT LEAST one month. You could look back on it years from now and see it as a pivotal moment in your internet marketing career, but you never will if you don't at least give it a try.


Check it out for a few days though - you don't need to upgrade right now. Make sure it's a good fit for you, and if you upgrade within the first 7 days you'll receive your first month's membership at more than 50% off. I keep my membership active and recurring every month so I can be here for the people I refer like you, so realize that I'm putting my money where my mouth is here!


On top of that, if you upgrade to a premium membership at the discounted rate within the first 7 days I have a special bonus EXCLUSIVE to people that join WA through me and upgrade within the first week of creating their free account. This bonus will show you how to be twice as successful with WA or any other legitimate internet marketing program out there and gives you some very valuable video lessons (which I recorded for you personally, of course) to ensure you get off to the right step in your internet marketing business.


I keep a close watch on the list of people that upgrade from starter to premium, so I'll send the bonus your way within 24 hours. If you upgrade and don't receive it within that time frame for some reason, just post on my WA profile and let me know!


I don't offer that bonus so you'll spring for the membership and make me more money, I offer the bonus just in case you needed that tiny "push" to make sure you invest in this training because I know that you will use for the rest of your IM career and it could change your life. I've referred hundreds of people now and I have NEVER had anyone tell me they were dissatisfied.


Best of luck to you! You're about to embark on a journey that could change your life forever, so make sure you take it seriously, put in the time and effort, and expect great things in return!


You know where to find me,
Ian Pribyl


P.S. I know I've thrown A LOT of information your way in this message, but I wanted to give you one last thing. Here is a video tour of the members' area to help ensure you get the most out of your free membership as possible: http://youtu.be/NDmMcMtMB8c


Sorry for sending so much your way at once, I just want to set you up for success as much as I possibly can!
