About Jmkoontz
Joined September 2012
My name is Michael and I am an artist, writer, musician, gamer and all around fun guy. In short, I'm an avid storyteller looking to find an outlet for my creativity that will allow me to both support myself and still allow me to explore on my own terms.

Currently I am an in-house graphic designer and social media marketer for a national auto-equipment distributor. I spend my days creating websites, blogs, print ads, catalogs and other bits of graphic-designery (my term ^_^ )

I came late to the social media game but I'm learning quickly - learn to swim or drown - and am looking forward to learning more and offering what I have learned to others. I am, however, a whiz with ad creation and Wordpress Theming. If you need advice on either, please don't hesitate to ask.

Steve, Michael is my middle name as well - you'll notice the J at the very front of my username ^_^ - I might have the advantage in terms of computer/designery stuff, but I just found out that a large portion of my affiliate sales options just dried up since GA decided it wants affiliate tax revenue and Amazon and other affiliates thinks it is better to cut ties with us than pay taxes.

In terms of Social Media, best advice, start slow and be targeted. There's a ton of options out there and rarely is anyone using all of them. If you try to serve all areas, you will quickly become bogged down doing nothing but social media and not getting anywhere. Do some exploring and figure out which sites most of your niche interest base use. Are they mostly on Facebook and Twitter? Then don't worry so much about Google+ etc. One thing about social media, it still follows most of the rules dealing with social groups - cliques of one type tend to all flock in the same locations - find the flocking locations for your area and you know where to target.

Hey there and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. It is great to have you here and I definitely look forward to working with you. My suggest to you is to take action on what you learn as a good deal of the actual learning will take place during the “action” phase.

If you have any questions, give me a shout. :)
