Hey 101dude, thanks for the info QR codes. I was always wondering how people get that or create it. Do you know if people still collect comic books or purchase them as collectibles? I have been holding on to alot of my comics since 25 years ago. To tell you the truth, I didn't read all of them lol.... I was just collecting cause it was the thing to do back then. Just like collecting topps cards. I will definitely check out your site though. Later!
Reply
im101dude Premium
Thanks June,
Yeah people are still collecting and dealing. But it's frankly a buyers market now. The market saturation that started in the 90's has de-valued most modern comics and some Golden and Silver age books too. But they will come back. Scarcity increases value over time.

Thanks for the follow! Hows the monetizing working out??
Reply
im101dude Premium
Very slowly. But occasionally I get a $1 surprise here and there. I have a long way to go on my comic book website overhaul. But it will happen. I have been re-writing pages from other sites that I have contributed to, but have to change them so I don't have duplicate information out there. A bit painful re-writing 15 or so 1000 word articles that earn a few pennies elsewhere...
Reply
Jeannette Premium
whooo that does sound painful; but it will pay off! I mean, youre more than halfway there with the Megabook gig anyways! Do you have the opportunity to attend any conventions?

Nope, no cons in Nebraska. Too rich for my budget. MEGABOOK has been great. I have made tons of comic creator friends with it.

Reply
im101dude Premium
Hey 4Ed,

I have a bunch of stuff that I am working on right now for my comic website. So there will be allot more. I would say a tip would be to follow the niche of your interests. I made the http://startsmallbusinessnomoney.com/ website and it was a great "test" model for me. And I wanted to help others out who have $0. But it isn't my passion like comic books are. So the business website has been a bit in the way of my comic stuff.
Almost everything you do as a niche can involve promoting WA. So I wouldn't get caught up with solely promoting it, but using it as a compliment to the niche of your choosing.
Still waiting for that first big sell though...

Good Luck!
--Mike

Comics, huh? I was once a comics junkie, for very many years. Always fancied I'd be a comic book artist one day, and although I've drawn my share, even publishing several strips in the local underground press back in the '80's, I sort of drifted away from that. Still, this sounds quite interesting, so I'll be sure to keep up with your explouts. Best of luck!

Heya Michael, thanks for the tip about 'hosting' - I was getting annoyed at myself coz I knew I was misunderstanding something but wasn't quite sure how to word it so people would know what I was asking. Your warehouse analogy totally helped! Would it be ok to create the site using siterubix and then shift it over?
Reply
im101dude Premium
Yes. I did that myself for my WA Bootcamp experiment. Once you have built a website on Siterubix, then you can shift it over to your new domain with 2 clicks. It's super easy. Here's the website that I made if you want to see it.

Hey Mike just checked out your websites - nice! The comic one's gonna be epic when you update it and I like the concept of the other one. I actually wish I'd seen yours before I upgraded then I woulda found out 'the secret' and not wasted 3 months (I got too busy to be online but remained a premium member). But all goods, I'm here now and am making the most of it. Thanks again for the awesome tips! :)

I keep a pretty close watch on that thread (and so do the co-founders of Wealthy Affiliate, Kyle and Carson), so posting your income goals there will give us a much better idea of what we can do to help you!

Hey Michael! 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): https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1


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

Hi Michael,

Welcome to WA! As you are just new to the community I'd like to take this opportunity to say hello and let you know that I am here to help you get started.

I've helped 1000's of people over the years build thriving online businesses and the Wealthy Affiliate platform will provide you the tools and training to succeed as well.

Kyle, myself, and many other very helpful people hang out at WA and are always willing to lend a hand.

If you have any questions I suggest using the Live chat as you will get answers very quickly. Or you can ask questions within tutorials, blogs, or directly to other members on their Spaces.

Here is the initial training that I suggest you get started with:
