About Immistermike
Joined August 2016
I was recently forced out of the "working" world, only a couple of years away from retirement. Starting over with a new job would require a move. I've thought of doing this internet thing before and for whatever reason just never did it. This time I did take the plunge! And you know what, my association with Wealthy Affiliate is one of the best decisions I've made!

In no time at all I have:

* Been introduced to the affiliate marketing concept behind Wealthy Affiliate
* Found and honed down a niche market
* Acquired the knowledge to use Keyword Tools such as Jaaxy.com and WA’s
own Keyword Tool
* Designed and constructed an attractive website that I have built out on using my knowledge of my niche market
* Optimized my website with Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
* Indexed my website for Google® and Bing® using Google+
* Drawn internet traffic to my website

I've also been able to draw extensively on my IT background, especially in imaging, networks and web protocols.

Enough about work! I also play guitar and sing in two local bands. One is a classic rock band focused mostly on late-60's, early-70's music with a few more modern tunes (anyone like John Mayer?) My other band is a church band where we literally rock the house on the rock every Sunday. Two of my band mates also play in both of these bands.

Aside from that I'm a bit of a tech-nerd. I love solving problems and making the day-to-day a little easier and a little more fun.

Stop by anytime and drop me a line. And if you're a Wealthy Affiliate or simply want to become one, don't hesitate to let me know or ask. Hope to see you around!

Great goals Michael,

The first step to achieving success online is to set some goals and now that you have done this you can start working towards them. Your goals are absolutely achievable and realistic. Dedicate yourself to working through the training, taking action, and getting help when you need it.

I am personally here to help you and there are many others within the community that will reach out to help too.

You are already doing great, keep it up!

Hello Michael and welcome to wealthy affiliate.
You have probably realised by now that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
Can I suggest you browse some of the 200+ blogs I have published within WA.
Thank you for the follow as well and I will follow you.
Remember, if you get stuck you ask ok.
Enjoy your day.

Hi again Michael it’s a good idea (only if you want to) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.
Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing but.
But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.
Enjoy your day.

Thanks, Robert! That's good to know and I'll definitely want to do that. How does writing/posting a random blog factor in? Same principle?

Hello Again Michael
You can get involved with the community in several ways and 'Liking' comments is one.
The WA system will pick up on your involvement.
See my pic to see what I mean.
Enjoy your Friday.

Hello Michael, ♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ 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 list of 1001 niche ideas, 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. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right, the first website link (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

I'm sure some of you know this, but I didn't, at least until yesterday when I attempted to sign up for the Amazon Affiliate program.

Arkansas, Louisiana, Maine, Missouri, Rhode Island, and Vermont have "Amazon Laws" that basically don't allow these states to participate in the program(s) because Amazon won't collect and distribute taxes on sales. This supposedly also affects eBay.

Just a heads-up!

Apparently it's not affecting eBay since they signed me up...

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?".

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 to me when you get the chance! :)

Thanks Kyle!
I opted for "Basic Music Theory"

That still might be a bit broad. What type of music?

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

Hmm, well, to me, music theory applies to all music and deals with what makes music be music. It could possibly be a very broad subject, but due to the fact that most musicians avoid theory like the plague...

I had another idea and it has been a passion of mine for quite some time and that is Home Automation, especially for the disabled. Narrowed even further, it is Electronic Assistant. I even came across Amazon's product ECHO which is basically voice controlled. With correct interfaces it can control lights, ovens, a/c, outlets, you name it, all by voice. They even mention the benefit to those with disabilities. What do you think?

Sure, you know the space better than me Mike. If you want to head in the direction of music theory, by all means head in that direction. It sounds like something that you are definitely passionate about.:)

I stand corrected, brother! It turns out that there are subsets of Music Theory named Guitar (Fretboard) Theory. So that ended up being a pretty good whittle-down with lots of potential for future blogs.
