About Ereilly429
Joined March 2016
Hello, my name is Ed Reilly and I live in upstate NY not far from Saratoga Springs. I am a sales representative in the medical field. I am approaching retirement in about 2 years so I have been researching ways to build an online business that will eventually generate a sustainable income close to what I earn and perhaps even more. I have read such great reviews of Wealthy Affiliate, so I decided I would like to dig in and check this out. I just joined as a free member first, then went through the first 10 steps.. From what I have initially seen in here I am quite impressed! Everything is laid out very well especially for a newbie like myself! I then upgraded to premium and then purchased my domain, Drumsandpercussions.com. The site is still being developed.
That being said, I sincerely hope I have found the right vehicle that I can work part time now and gradually begin expanding it to full time.
I am a father of 4 adult children, my wife has 4 from a previous relationship and between us we have 15 grandchildren. Pretty awesome!! I may be reaching out to others to answer questions and it appears that the support here is phenominal!
So, thanks for listening to me and look forward to working with all of you!

Hi Ed, thanks for the follow. Following you too.

Must say you live in a beautiful area, with all the natural beauty of the adirondacks. And the horse races in august with the downtown parties of course. Do you go to the races?

ereilly429 Premium
Yes as a matter of fact, we live about 15 minutes from the track and we do enjoy going 4 or 5 times during the August meet! Sounds like you have visited here in the past!

Lucky you, Ed! I really enjoyed living in the region a while. Never made it to the track during a race though. Too much fun in town lol.

Hello Ed, Welcome! (◠‿◠✿) Nice to meet you, I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made 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. It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right under training (click on my picture). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my website on sleep apnea. You can find the link on my profile page.

I will check out your site! I have sleep apnea. I have had a cpap machine for 4 or 5 years now. Took me quite awhile to get used to it at first but now I cannot sleep w/out it!

Thanks! I've only been wearing one for 8 months, didn't have any problems getting used to it, but I'm not sure I could get to sleep without it now!

So, I go to check my email and I receive an email from the company that I chose to be an affiliate with. The email said "We are sorry but
your application for affiliate status has been declined. Now this comes after having seemingly been accepted. They sent me instructions to link my site with their different images, so thats exactly what I have done. Now I have to remove all of them. It seems that all companies in my chosen niche, all use a 3rd party for commissions. Anyone dealt with commission junction recently?
Reply
mattysmom Premium
I use Commission Junction solely as they are the only affiliate website that has travel companies. I could not find it with any other. Make sure you look in the advertisers which have accepted you for your links. Then you know they have accepted you.

What's going on Edward? Hope you have had an awesome week here at WA and you are making some good progress through the training. If you need a little kick in the pants, I've got just the thing for you.

It's my training here titled 'Starting from Scratch: The Strategies I Use to Build & Maintain Successful Websites' It is a Premium training so you may have to check back after you upgrade to get full access!

In the meantime, let me know if there's anything I can do to help!

Hey Edward! Just wanted to follow up and see how you're doing so far. Hope you've been enjoying the training offered here and the community as well.

I wanted to share with you a training I wrote here at Wealthy Affiliate. It's called "9 Tips for Internet Marketing Beginners" and it walks you through some of the things I've learned since joining Wealthy Affiliate over 5 years ago. Check it out below and leave a comment to let me know what you think!

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?". lol

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 at me! :)

Hey Edward and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

My name is Steve and I'm the owner of IveTriedThat. You signed up through me and I thought I'd tell you a little about myself. I joined Wealthy Affiliate back in 2009, over 5 years ago. I was looking to learn how to supplement my income through Internet Marketing and what I've found was so much more.

By 2010, I was working full-time from home. These days, ALL of my income comes from my ventures online. In fact, my wife just recently quit her job to start her own business as well. Internet Marketing and Wealthy Affiliate have provided us with amazing opportunities (we've bought a house, get to travel the world, and best of all, no longer spend time "going to work") and I'm incredibly thankful to the training, tools, and support here that made it all possible. :)

I'd love for you to see the same level of success. So, if you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, do not hesitate to get in touch with me. I am here to help!

To get started, you should add a short description and upload a picture. Wealthy Affiliate is a community and having a profile and a picture will really help get you acquainted here.

Anyways, thought I would just introduce myself. If there's anything I can do for you Edward, just let me know!

Cheers!

Steve
