About Lukus
Joined May 2014
Greetings, my name is Lucas and I currently work full-time as a salesman in a call center promoting satellite TV equipment and premium movie channels and so far I'm one of the top performers in our district because the key to my sales is developing a connection with my customers. I also do coaching within our site for newbies so I do have interest in helping others succeed here at WA since at my current full time job which I've been working for 2 years I already do this anyways.

It is my dream to take this same talent and apply it to the online world. I like video games and am also interested in bike riding, writing, hanging with friends and family, swimming, and just plain having fun. Working 9-5 jobs just cramps my laid back style and I hope to change that someday by earning enough by writing, which I love to do, to quit my current job and work my own schedule.

I do understand it will take a lot of hard work, discipline, time management skills, and patience to develop my career as an online marketer. To those of you skeptical about online marketing and making money online, I'd like to share that I've tried other marketing methods online a few years back, namely referral marketing and even already tried affiliate marketing once and was not successful.

I was surprised when I actually made a very small amount of money and it was a game changer for me, so don't none of you convince yourselves it can't be done. The only reasons I abandoned said previous projects was due to the lack of support and other personal life changes. Thankfully, the former will no longer be an issue for me since I've discovered WA.

Writing reviews and posting in blogs and message boards to earn a second income will be a great opportunity and challenge for me. Plus I'm hoping with the advantage of an active community here at WA I can finally meet and exceed all expectations in the online marketing world. With a steady income coming from my websites and my current job along with grants hopefully I can go back to college and finish what I started.

Pleasure to meet you all and Godspeed.

-Lucas

So awesome Lucas, I know from experience that goals are what lead us to success. Work relentlessly in pursuit of these goals and they CAN and WILL happen.

In fact, wipe failure out of your mind right now. It simply won't happen. You have too much help, support and an entire community of help behind you to ever let that happen :)

If you need anything going forward, just let me known and I will be happy to give you a hand.

Still doing niche research. Planning to get my free website soon up as well as updating my picture so you'll get to see I'm a real person and not some super advanced web bot. LOL It's reassuring to know I can just delete it and try again. I'll probably be doing that alot.Painful first baby steps. Just like working out though, no pain no gain! I'm just going to have to pick something and wade in. I'll never know what niche is good unless I try, but I'd really would LOVE to do product reviews. It was always my life dream to be a video game reviewer for a major magazine publisher, we'll just have to see how this goes. I have a few plan B niches lined up in case this idea flops. Just for the record, I haven't been this nervous since leaving home for the first time for trade school!

You can always combine video game reviews with something a bit more practical, something is a related niche.

There would be nothing wrong with doing a site about MMORPG strategy, and having reviews of video games you play. The reviews can be for fun, and the other stuff can be for profit.

Think of all the money that's spent in the industry and where people are spending it. That's a good way to find a great niche.

I'm thinking of ways to organize things in my head.I hate it when I'm struck with inspiration and then stuck with no way to take notes when I'm not in front of my computer. I may need to consider investing in a tablet or notebook PC in near future. Dumb question but can I go ahead and start a WA blog even though my first niche likely won't be bootcamp? Also, now that I'm a premium member are there any benefits from the free websites vs. a domain? (i.e. are free websites easier to experiment with?)

Now that you are a premium member, I recommend your website be .com websites unless you are using it for testing, then siterubix is fine for that. .Com's will always be better for branding and ranking.

You can certainly start a website that is on the topic of "my marketing journey" or something like that, and you can use it to track your progress. It might be fun, kind of like an online journal, and means you can promote WA without doing bootcamp per se.

I don't recommend doing two full websites at once though, because it will be a huge time suck, and likely frustrate you.

I intend to be here for the long haul, so I'm not concerned at all by the half-price offer counter on the dashboard. Generous discount though and thank you for the education that I know you guys could easily charge thousands of dollars for. Rest assured, I'll be sure to make the most out of your program. My future depends on it.

Hi Lucas, Nathaniell here. Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

I'm glad to see you've signed up and are ready to get started.

More buddies means more support. More support means more success.

2) You can get started learning how to make money by doing your Level 1 Certification Course.

★ ★ ★ How To Access Your Exclusive Bonuses ★ ★ ★

I also wanted to let you know that if you join the premium membership in this 7 day window you'll get a TON of awesome stuff.

First off, you'll get a 59% discount ($19.95 for 1 month) on your membership. Twenty bucks for you first month of WA is an absolute steal. This is available to all members. But I've lined up some other things which are a bit more exclusive.


☆ ☆ Bonus #1: Live Case Study 3 Part Webinar Series

Get access to a 3-Part-Series Live Case Study webinar. It's video series where a professional internet marketer creates a complete 'niche website'. All steps are included and thoroughly explained. Total length of the videos is about 3 hours.

This will give you a broad overview of the type of site you will create on Wealthy Affiliate. I think it's always a good idea to know the direction you are headed before you start your journey.


☆ ☆ Bonus #2: Exclusive Look at The Top 5 Newbie Mistakes And How To Fix Them

Some questions get asked over and over again. It's very likely you have these same questions.

This is a two-part bonus. It includes an exclusive video not available to other WA members where I create a website EXACTLY how the training teaches you. Many new members don't follow the instructions properly and can't get their sites to work. Watch this video first, and you'll be up and running in 20 minutes with your own .com hosted here on WA.

I have also included 5 newbie website design and setup tips. These are super easy ways to turn your site from a basic Wordpress install into a streamlined canvas ready for action, and ready to impress your traffic.

This means you will be able to bypass these typical mistakes, get started faster, and on the right foot. This is an exciting time - you are building the foundations of a profitable online business, and I want to help you get started as quickly and smoothly as possible.
