About JohnMaheu
Joined April 2014
Hi everybody! My name is John and I live in Central New York. I first joined Wealthy Affiliates back in 2008 but only stayed 4 months. However, I can say that since leaving I made several thousand dollars online and that's because of the knowledge I gained here in those short few months.

I have decided to come back for several reasons with the main one being the training and all the cool new stuff that has been added. Another BIG reason I came back is because I remember how hard it was when I was a complete newbie and really want to give back.

So it will be a pleasure to share all my knowledge and help those with whatever I can. Anyone can contact me at any time. One thing I learned is helping people is the key to success with whatever you are doing online.

Complete one successful step toward your goal everyday, and it's impossible to fail.

Welcome Home John,
I'm sure you have a lot of knowledge, and situations that one could learn from, both when you were here at WA and while you were on the streets.
I'm a newbie, but I'm fine with that for now.Everyone must start somewhere. I've been here for a relatively short period of time and have already experienced the tremendous amount of training opportunity that is offered.The training is beyond comprehension. As I put in my profile, they, Carson and Kyle, have exceeded my expectations.

Hey John,

I tried to visit your affiliate light house website. It gave me a message, ''This domain has recently been listed in the marketplace.''. Is it no longer available or is it a technical fault?

Thanks,

I just checked out your site and say WOW, you are doing a great job. I can see a lot of content is missing but thats ok as long as you are working at it a little each day.

You also don't have to make a huge site before you start advertising it. Some of the best content comes from the visitors they tell you what they want to see on your site.

And don't forget to build a list. If you don't have an auto-responder, contact me cause I use have a professional one for free and I can help you get the same thing.

But your site is looking Great!!

Hi John Just read your blog. I was wondering what program you got the signups in was it WA? I have used a lot of traffic exchanges with no luck. Which ones do you find are the most responsive?
Thanks
Reply
JohnMaheu Premium
Hi GrahamS,
First, very sorry for the late reply, I haven't been on in a while. But no it wasn't WA. It was called Trafficwave and FTS.
I have been working it again and it's working very well for me.

About traffic exchanges, If you have no luck with Traffic Exchanges it's because you must not be doing it right. Traffic Exchanges has to be used a certain way otherwise they are worthless. The trick is to get free traffic for little work, and have the right kind of capture page to promote on them.

With the right page, you can build a nice responsive list. My list converts right now at 20%. So every 10 subscribers I get 2 sign-ups into my business

I can teach you how if you want. My system works so that I can get 40,000 credits a month with little surfing. I pass down traffic to my friends so they can build a list too.

If you want a list of my favorite TE's, private message me. I promise it wont take a month to respond. Or email me at johnmaheu@gmail.com

Have a great one!

John, Hi Impressed not only with your success story but also by your desire to help others.
I particularly liked your comment about taking one successful step toward your goal everyday. For several months now I have been bogged down and unable to even get started with an on line business as I had always been thinking just about the end result, but having been with WA for just a few days my thinking has now changed and I can clearly see that the 1,000 mile journey does indeed begin with just one small step - to be followed by another and another.

JohnMaheu Premium
Hi Gerry,
Thank you very much for your kind words. I'm sorry that you have been struggling for months like that. But I am happy you like my comment about one step at a time. I had the very same problem as you did, went months going in circles. I finally set a goal, and worked towards it one step at a time and didn't care about anything else. Nor did I fear a bad outcome. The result felt like magic!

I can help you anytime you need me to. Just contact me OK?
Have a great one!

Reply
JohnMaheu Premium
Hi Arick, If I can give you a piece of my own history...I was doing that as well when I started and it was A BAD IDEA. For 6 months I was trying just 3 things at once and the only thing I accomplished was headaches. I stopped doing that and just worked on one thing and my first check came in the mail 7 weeks later and continued to come for three years. So you are really being counter-productive by working on 5 at a time. I just want you to reach success now and not later. Nothin but love!

Hello John and welcome back. You sound like a person I would like to follow ... if that's ok. Not sure what WA was like in 2008, but it's pretty incredible now. That's coming from someone who is learning to build their first website ... thanks to this amazing platform. Kyle and Carson are a fresh breath of honesty, integrity, and sincerity relative to all the guru hype I've run into.
Reply
JohnMaheu Premium
Hi Dennis! Absolutely you can follow me. I have a lot to share but I'm first working on my website to promote WA. In 2008 WA was a lot different. They had a forum instead of Blogs, half the tools and 1/4 the training...and it was STILL the best thing on the web for us. Now it is just awesome and it's still the same price. Oh yeah, they didn't have a free option either...which is a great perk now to convert sales. IF YOU need help with anything or just want my opinion..contact me. I'm online 5 days a week, sometimes 7 :)

Welcome John, to Wealthy Affiliates and thanks for accepting my invitation to check it out.

There's a lot to learn here, the best place to start would be the level 1 certification course. So start with the first lesson by clicking on the link below.

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

Be sure to create a profile and add a picture, that way you'll get lots of help from all the peeps in WA. You'll find out how to do this in the getting started link above.

Sadly some people don't even get this far, for some unknown reason.

If you can do this, (i.e.) follow simple instructions, (implementing as you go), soon you will be on your way to making your first sale.

Please feel free to ask questions in the community through live chat or the Getting started classroom above. Or hit me up anytime you want in WA.

Anyway, I know you'd be eager to have a browse around so I'll let you get your feet wet.

Best of luck, and don't forget you can always ask me for help!


Best,
Frank

Hi John,

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:

I look forward to working with you.
