My name is Steve.

I run a website called I've Tried That.

I started it in 2007 as a way to document the scams and save people from losing their hard earned money.

I joined Wealthy Affiliate in 2009 to check out the site for a review, and I've never left.

Since joining, I turned my website from a hobby into a full-time career: all thanks to the training and support offered here. It really is the best training resource on how to build a business online.

I'm never leaving.

Hello Steve, read your review and was really impressed! I could just relate with your success story as I also desire FINANCIAL FREEDOM. I hate to be told why are you not here at this time, they pay you little money and take control over your precious time. Want to wake up any day and go shopping, not only on weekends, See my children grow up and not by TV and anybody else! Homeschool my chidren, travel the world when you feel like doing so(Would love to go to BORA BORA). These are my reasons why I want to build a business online. And I know it's achievable!

Hi Steve, I just happened to come across one of your older posts and just wanted to say hi, and I like your web site. I too joined WA (premium) in hopes of having more control over my life, so far I think I'm in the right place just following the training.

Happy Thanksgiving

Hi Steve. I found WA due to looking at one of your reviews. Thank you. I do believe that you are a godsend. keep up the good work. I imagine all of us have signed up for something at sometime and sort of gotten "taken". My policy is to never try something without a guarantee. And I have a very easy system for keeping track and asking for refunds if the item is useless to me or incomplete or lacking in some other way. Thanks for pointing me to WA. See you on the web!

Hi Steve
Thanks for checking in on me. You said something which encouraged me to move forward. It made me think. It is something which I must do immediately so that my business can sore like yours. What you said was that you stopped treating your business like a "hobby". Thanks for sharing that word!

Hey Steve.
Ok so I wrote a post and published on my website with my key word and then I posted in on my google+ account. Later yesterday evening I decided to see where I was ranked and when I typed in my key word I was second on the list out of 320 post but it was my google+ post and not my website. Why is that. And is that good?

Hi Susy. You can set up a web site for just about anything here at W.A. Just watch the training videos and you will learn how to set up a website. It is not hard. If I can do it, then so can you.

Love your Amazon tips! Looking to affiliate marketing to bring in money every month so I can quit my j-o-b (that was a band-aid turned permanent fixture, ACK!) and get back to staying home with my husband and kids. Already implemented some of your tips! Prying myself away so I can catch some ZZZ and get back at it in the morning.

Hi Steve. Thank you. I read your article and loved the pics of you and your wife traveling. That's my goal! Your story inspired me and although I've never done anything like this before, I feel compelled to give it a try. I must admit I'm extremely nervous but after watching Kyle's Getting Started video, my confidence is rising. I will be upgrading to premium so I can take full advantage of the help. It sounds like a great community to live in!

had a look on your website.

Personally, i do not like taking the critique angle on as a marketing strategy but I was impressed at how professional and unbiased you did the evaluation of the products. Seems to me you found a good balance that for a new guy on the block like me helps to read and avoid falling into bad business opportunities.

I was pleasantly surprized. :)

Hey Steve!
You have a very cool website! I read some of it yesterday at work - bored - and finished today reading to the bottom. I followed your advice and am curious, how this will end up :)!
I try to do an effort within the next two weeks, as I have some ideas already what I want to promote. I hope I understand all the technics.
Would be cool to get your support as I think I will start without the premium first.

I loved your top 10 tips for amazon guide, it has some great information and I learned a lot from it.
I also wanted to let you know, I read your guide on 7 ways to make money from video games on your website. I've been playing video games for 12 years, have programming experience in C and Java, spent several months doing game level design in the Source Engine along with Unreal Development Kit 3 and 4.

I'm currently making a website to teach people how to make video games from my own experience and as an affiliate for several programs I know that teach people how to make money from games. I hope your competitive because I'm gonna blow you you out of the water :).
I'm sure we can make great friends and hope to hear from you in the future.

I am trying to determine my niche on my new website. I was thinking about helping people find useful books about playing the lottery. Now I am considering changing it to something that helps others on WA to build their business. I am considering law of attraction, affirmations, and prayer for money as tools that could help WA people.
Any comments would be appreciated.

I just found you round aboutly- I googled SellcentralAmazon and started looking though the listings - found a review that linked to you - am I am now back at WA.

Guess you already know the value of this WA course. I will begin watching and reading what you have to say. I like your info/ad page that appears to guide people back here.. I need to have one of my own.

I do have a question...I am an "expert" so to speak - in weight loss...if I bring multiple products together (already on Amazon) to "sell" as a Unit and part of my weight loss program. I supply the instructions (maybe a free eBook to get Opt in emails + possibly an ongoing counseling and advice monthly fee...can Amazon put the products together from their listed inventory - allow the dieter to purchase them all at once. They do have suitable products that would work...but - can I create a one click form to purchase them all at once? And can I get a commission using their products or do I need to look for generic versions?

I have just now begun looking to learn about Amazon.

That's a mouthful of a questions - but you seem to know this stuff. Does it sound like I am thinking in the right directions?

Hey Steve! I found a niche and interest I would like to continue and earn with. But at this moment I am only at beginning of my way. On April 3rd starts my online course for gaining first level of Diploma in sport nutrition - my niche. It takes me all month to finish so my first question is If I can start on website or blog when I have not enough information now and dont want to write about something what is not my own experience/knowledge.
Second question is that is on Shaw Academy and they offering affiliate program when I will have my own web/blog and would like to know if I can have this earn-money option too, together with WA but think later will be more right time for complaining this.

Thank you in advance for your help and opinion.

P.S. excuse me I wrote you pm, need to learn a lot about being part of community cause most of my life I was hiding before world around me.

Hi Steve,
I'm a bit stuck and a little confused. I'm on "Understand Website Pages & Creating Your First 3".
Although I've looked at some sites for ideas I'm still not sure what pages to create. I think I might have taken on more than I can chew, you see I want to make a website where people can choose from different affiliate programmes, some of which I actually promote myself. Could I just make pages named after each affiliate programme and say what I like about it and what I don't, or maybe I should rethink my web page.

What do you think. I hope I haven't confused you.

Hello. It seems I just cant go through the identity verification at amazon associates. I have googled for ideas with no success.

Hi Steve,

I'm currently employed by a large corporate motor dealership, in the automotive retail industry. This is a high stress environment and I'm convinced that there are a bunch of people that would love to get out and start their own business online.

So I want to start a site, marketing WA as a way to get out. The thing is that if I give away my identity, I could find myself in a lot of trouble! Is it plausible to do this anonymously? Your advice will be highly appreciated!

Thanks Martin.

Hi Steve....on my second week here at WA....started a website and decided not to continue. What I am going to concentrate on is the Affiliate boot camp.

Hello Steve,
My name is Anita Ritchey and I signed up under you about 3 yrs. ago. Well I am back and this time I really want to make this work. I don't have any experience with building websites and am going back through the training again. However, since I was here the last time Kyle is extremely busy an the advice I have gotten from some of the other members hasn't worked for me. I just want to get my website up and running. I need extra income very badly. I know this isn't a get rich quick scheme and I'm grateful for that, however, it would be nice not to get so stuck and to get answers that work. May I contact you when I'm having problems. One big problem is I don't know what a finished website looks like. I just want to be an affiliate marketer for senior women. I am 73 and would love a website that lists places to click on for beauty and activities and health/nutrition for senior women. I am on Level i, Lesson 7 currently, so I have much training to go. Also, I do not enjoy writing a lot, so the idea of blogs doesn't appeal to me much. Do I have to blog to have a successful affiliate marketing site?

I would appreciate your feedback.

Many thanks,
Anita

Hi! I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you for telling me about this website. I read a few things on your website, after I had been scammed of course, and thought I may as well give this a shot. Thanks again and hopefully I will talk to you soon!

Hi Steve. This is an awesome and somewhat overwhelming website to get involved with but I know I will learn the ropes of making a go of earning online income the smart way with modern tools. I built a sales website way back in the year 2001 and ran it through 2006 partnering with a friend selling of all things a very hard niche market, sport horse sales. It did become a success and was a very time consuming endeavor. I look forward to learning how to make online money an easier way and thank you for the referral to this site. The navigation is easy to read, and packed full of more than I can possibly sift through to start so I'm going to follow the lessons. Haven't had enough time since joining to run through all the first 10 lessons yet. I'm sure I will be upgrading to premium for the discount price before the opportunity expires.

hey steve, I bought a domain at godaddy, and have been in the process of transferring it to WA. I changed DNS, unlocked, agreed to T&C from godaddy and WA, but still cannot build a website using the new domain. However, It has been only about 25 hrs ago that I did all this..Did I do something wrong perhaps? Will it all of a sudden become available in the dropbox when building a site "using own domain?"
Also, tell me what you think, the domain/site name is called nextdoorparty.com Its gonna be a place that is all things party from theme ideas, recipe ideas, costume, decoration ideas, crazy drunk stories/photo share. I'm trying to buckle in(and hurry) and try to initially focus on halloween, then move in towards x-mas ect. There seems to be a major reason to party or hoiday every month (if not more) and has the potential for endless content update. What do think?

Changes to domains usually take 24-48 hours to propagate across the world. I tried opening your domain and saw the WA hosting splash page which tells me it went through. You may have to clear your cookies/cache to see it. If you're still having issues the domain support team can take a look for you here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/support

Hey Steve,

I am a curious kinda gal. I ran your site through Alexa to see your rankings. Pretty impressive! Not just your rank but also your visitors. I agree with your assessment. Write high quality content on a regular basis and the rest will follow.

I noticed that only 3.9% of your site visitors are from Canada! As a Canadian, I wish more of my fellow Canucks could access your information. I am going through everything you've written at the moment.

I had a blog that received a lot of traffic but I was not as passionate as I thought. I started it in 2011 but am now finally letting it go and starting over.

I will follow your methods and if I begin to achieve success using your recommendations, maybe you can interview me and get more Canucks following you :)

Thank you for your incredible contributions to this community! I am blown away!

In community,

Joy

PS: How important is the domain name in your opinion? I have chosen FearlessWithJoy.com because it matches where I am at and how I am approaching things and doesn't keep me stuck on a certain topic. Do you think it is a decent name, or should I rethink it? Just curious to hear your thoughts when you have a moment.

Hi Joy! Thank you for the kind words! My approach to building websites has always been "write content I would want to personally read" and that's it. That's been my whole philosophy and it's been working out great for me so far. :)

As for your domain name, by all means, brand yourself. That is a much better alternative than a long-winded awkward domain name.

I see this pop up a lot, but I think the community here handles questions well enough and provides enough support that the idea of mentorship is a bit outdated.

Steve: I happy to read about your post and it sounds like me. I tried many different ways to make money from home . Finally I found a true review that exposed a quite a few scams but WA was highly Rated as #1 so I signed up. So far I am overwhelm with all the great information and how great all you freinds respond to a new comer.
Thanks Pete

Hi Steve,

Thanks for your supportive and informative comments today. I have also tried my fair share of online programs, e-books, workshops, communities and webinars over the years. I gained something from each and every program but I also chose very carefully, did my research, utilized the free aspects of each offering before joining and have never yet felt "scammed".

I get calls and emails all the time offering me web development, marketing support, etc. I have a small line I repeat every time I get one of these calls or if it is just automated, I press 2 which disconnects the call and adds me to their do not call list.

Today was the first time someone used the information they had learned about me to make me feel comfortable. I did not even have the actual call with the person because I was busy when they called but they were convincing enough that I even scheduled a follow up appointment with them!

Something wasn't sitting right with me and I am very glad I mentioned it and got the necessary support to realize they were simply trying to gain my trust to exploit me.

I appreciate your insightful responses.

Joy

Hey Steve!!!

Just viewed Lesson 2.....I don't consider myself a slow learner, but it seems I'll have to go over that lesson one more time.....OK, maybe twice. There's a lot more to this than what I had expected...but I'm up for the challenge. This should be a most interesting journey....

I appreciate all the time and effort you've put into the training Steve; I didn't log on until this evening, so I'll set aside adequate time tomorrow, to go over that lesson again.....and again...

Regards,

Veronica

Hi Steve, I haven't been to your website, yet i've been trying to find an online business to do, cause I chose to believe that there was something out there that worked. Yet I just recently I found this and want to do this endeavor. I am glad for the support here and since you've been doing this for a while. I figured i could learn some stuff from you. I appreciate you.

Hello Steve,

Honestly have never seen any site with a better online marketing tutorials like yours.

Im Kingsley Ekong from West Africa( Nigeria). I love internet marketing but have never had the opportunity to explore this excellent medium to making steady and legit income online.

Please I will love to know how I can benefit from this wonderful opportunity of making legit income online as i have already registered as a member on your site and have completed my first lessons but im stocked in the area of registration as a premium member.

Please I would be glad to getting positive response from you.

Thanks....
Kingsley....

Hi Steve,

Just running this niche idea by you;

I love coffee, but I don't like to pay outrageous prices at cafes. I want to start a site sharing my experience as an amateur barista - from roasting coffee beans at home all the way to the different methods of pour over brewing.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts on this!

Hiya Steve, quick question about the domain names under Premium... if I transferred my own current domain names to SR, can I then have them pointing to an 'outside' web page? Just that I have a couple of free websites up & running and still want them to keep working, but like the idea of getter cheaper domains/renewals with you guys.

Thanks in advance!!

Hi Steve,

I consider myself lucky to find your training and help. I joined WA for a month so far, and yes am overwhelm with lots new information and some are hard to follow.

However I am happy to find yours are easily to follow. Next time when I need help I will drop some questions here. Hope you don't mind. Thank you Steve.

Thinking of my niche. I have 3 I could use. Two of which would work with the failing direct sales businesses I have. Would linking those websites and directing business there be advisable over affiliate marketing? They are well known, they are failing due to my disregard of them due to health.

Hi Steve

I am taking the following actions:

1. Finding an idea or niche
2. Creating a website, preferably own my own domain
3. Join Premium membership.

Can you advise in what order should I do it?

I don't have an idea at the moment, so really then if I have a website, what would be my theme: what am I selling?

Appreciate your advice. Cheers

Vincent

Hi Steve, I wanted to say hello and to thank you for introducing me to Wealthy Affiliate. I joined under you and just became a Premium member today. You messaged me when I was a free member but I can't find your message so I decided to write to you here. I have to learn my way around the community. Anyway, thank you and I'm sure I'll have lots of questions for you.

Hi Steve! I have kind of a weird question to ask you about putting together my Wealthy Affiliate website in order to take part of the WA Affiliate Program. While it's probably safe to say that more people would be more likely to want to take part in the Free
Course and subsequently get the Premium Membership if I could say that I've made money doing this etc.. But at this point, I'm still in the early stages of my learning and development so what content or what could I do or say on my Affiliate Website that would attract people to want to come try this great program and take part in this opportunity?
Feeling a little Stuck!

Hi Steve, I recently contacted you about making money online and I got an email from you. I just joined WA and found you here again. I am glad I did and I want to follow up on your perspective on making money online.
I am particularly interested in amazon as I am an ardent amazon customer but this time I want to make money on it.
what is the best way to go about it?
thank you.

Hi Steve.. Just wanted to let you know that I opted in on a review that you did. But when I signed up as a free member I went directly to the site. I am going to upgrade to premium and want to make sure that you get credit for it. Just let me know how we can do that. This community is awesome. I can feel the authenticity.

Just read your post about backlinks and PBN's and doing things properly to rank in Google. That lead me to your training on the 15 mistakes newbies make, which lead me to the conclusion that you are a guy really worth following in here.

I just wanted to say you have really provided me with real value and I really appreciate your time in creating these resources and posts to help newbies like me out. I've been here for a bit over a month now and am working every single day at this and learning more and more each day.

I really like how honest, straight forward and valuable your insights are and think I am going to learn a lot from you. Cheers!

Hi Steve, I came across your profile when I read a brief message of encouragement you had written for a new returning member. I was really encouraged to read how much success you and your wife have had with WA, it confirms for all us newbies just how genuine this opportunity is after so many of us have been the victim of scams multiple times. Thank you for your inspiration:) your newest follower, Ally

Hi, I am following you because I find your articles very positive and motivating and I need all the help I can get. I like to read about other people who have done well with WA, it keeps me on track. So far I haven't had any monetary success but I know it will come so I don't want to give up. One of my sites www.timeandmoneyforyou.com is dedicated to WA. I have had lots of browsers but so far no one has bought into the course.
Thanks for the inspiring blogs!
