About KMeyer
Joined July 2016
Hello,
My name is Kevin. I joined Wealthy Affiliate to learn about online marketing. I come from a mechanical background. I'm here to architect my life plan to build a sustainable income for retirement. Also, to help as many people I can while I'm here.

I started my career in the Industrial Laundry Equipment Field. I was hired as a parts analyst and troubleshooter for an International Laundry Equipment company. Helping customers solve repair issues that they had and supplying the parts necessary to get them back into production.

A customer service position that grew into a field service technician. The field service technician's job entails the installation and preventative maintenance and repair of large equipment. Working in commercial laundry and Hospital laundry facilities.

Two companies in Minnesota then recruited me called Minneapolis New and Used Equipment and Carlson's Sales and Service as a sub-contractor. It was a field service job where I was gone three weeks out four every month. I was responsible for customers in four states. As you might have guessed, I became miserable being away from my family for that amount of time. I loved the four distinct seasons of Minnesota. And being a hunter and fisherman, it was paradise. As with any occupation, there are sacrifices you make to support your family.
After a brief time, I was recruited by Admiral Engine and propellers in Largo, Florida. I was trained to work on maritime power, generator systems, propellers, and shafts.
Up to this point, my wife was a stay at home mom. When my son started school, she decided to find a job and hired by AT&T. AT&T needed her expertise to bring one of their phone stores in Florence, South Carolina back to being profitable again. So we were relocated to South Carolina by AT&T.
After a very brief time, she became homesick and we moved back to Ohio. She continued her employment with AT&T until AT&T downsized again.


I went to work for The Christ Hospital which after 14 years was downsized. Then she went to work for ZF - Batavia and downsized again.
I was able to find another job with Drake Hospital and after five years was downsized again. Now I am employed with Xavier University for the past eight years.

Greetings Kevin!

Although I am without husband or children, I know what it's like to have your life placed in the hands of an employer, thinking you're "safe". Reading stories like your reminds me that, no matter how many setbacks I may experience while building my site here, the reward is great; going back to a 9 to 5 is not an option.

Thank you for sharing, and I wish you well in controlling your own destiny!

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! :)

Hello, Kyle First off CONGRATULATIONS!! On your new addition to the family. I can see by the pictures you are very happy and proud of your family.
Thanks for taking your time out of your busy schedule to help me. I have three niche' interests so far are LED lighting, Residential Wind turbines and batteries.
When I was researching residential turbines I found an affiliate company Proformance-Based.com . Since there are few affiliate programs for this niche'. How can I figure out if the program typical. Can you offer any resources?
Amazon I believe can be my platform for the LED and battery niche'.
What is your opinion?
Thanks for the help,
Kevin

Thank you so much, we are very happy and she is definitely a little sweetie!

Don't worry about what you are going to promote when starting out. I have spent some time breaking down the process in the most simplistic way possible. Success online is at the core a 4 step process and I have broken them down within this video: Broken, down, the process looks like this:

Step 1: Choose your niche
Step 2: Build your website/content
Step 3: Get rankings in search engines (leads to traffic)
Step 4: Monetize your traffic (the make money part, through affiliate programs, etc!)

This applies in absolutely every niche and as you work through the training here at WA, you are going to be walked through this exact process. This is fundamental for ANY success online.

If you have any further questions let me know Kevin. :)

Kevin, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Kevin.

Hello Kevin, ♫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

Helol Kevin,

Nice to meet you and thanks for following me. You're right about being not exactly sure what I'm doing, but the more we do the more likely it is to become clear I believe. So I think going through the lessons is what we should be doing, and that should help our understanding of that become clearer.

See you around,

Jon

Hello Kevin and welcome to wealthy affiliate.
There's lots of help here within WA for Newbies and not so newbies.

As you have probably found out by now internet marketing can be a steep learning curve. Therefore can I suggest you browse some of the 200+ blogs I have published within WA.
I'm sure you will go away with lots of tips and advice.
Thank you for the follow as well and I will follow you.
Remember, you get stuck creating your site or anything else, you ask ok.
Enjoy your day.
