About Marcm247
Joined March 2019
Hi, my name is Marc and I am actually taking some time off from work to learn about generating a passive income online. I have been in logistics management for over 30 years and spent the last 12 years managing contracts in Afghanistan. I am married and we have 2 sons of which 1 is in university and the second is in his final year of secondary education. We're living in Thailand (yes there are worse places to live) and looking to start something new by myself. I was almost onboard with another online opportunity but I had some doubts and found “scam online information” where I found out about WA, so here I am. I’m taking this opportunity serious and will give it my best shot. Thank you for having me and thanks for any help that I sure will be needing going forward !! More to follow....

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! :)

Hi Jack, just wanted to ask if "travel Thailand" would be a good niche to start with or should i rather start with a product that can be purchased from online stores ? your thoughts ?
JackCao Premium
Personally, I wouldn't go into travel unless you plan to create a lifestyle blog or youtube channel.

I would prefer you promote digital products though.

But that is not for me to say. You need to be passionate or at least interested in the products that you promote. Do you have any ideas? Maybe you can run them through me.

Hey Marc! Just wanted to follow up and see how you're doing so far. Hope you've been enjoying the training offered here and the community as well.

You must be wondering if you can really make money after going through the courses here in WA. Truthfully, it can be done because I have experimented it and I know it works.

Just wanted to let you know that if you have upgraded to the premium membership, it covers the full spectrum of training, there will not be any further products that you "need" to purchase within the members area. This is unlike any programs out there.

Personally, I feel that the WA course is the best stepping stone for any one who wants to start an online business. You will be a seasoned affiliate marketer after going through the entire WA course.

See what the premium membership offers:


Let me know if you have any questions or need a hand with anything! I will be more than happy to help you out to build a successful future for you.

Jack, Hi,
quick question. I am choosing my niche and wasps thinking “Travel Thailand” but is there a good market for referrals to travel agencies, hotels or booking sites (e.g. booking com) and the likes ? Or am I better off with another niche to generate revenue ? Thanks fir your insight, Kind regards, Marc
JackCao Premium
Ok the reason I don't recommend building a travel site is because the competition is basically monopolised by Tripadvisor. Unless you start a lifestyle blog or a youtube channel where you share your travel lifestyle and you recommend products along the way, I would think it will be an uphill battle.

Hey Marc, Jack here. Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

Before you start making money, there are just 5 things you need to know.

1) I've recently created a YouTube Channel dedicated to sharing my knowledge and experience with affiliate marketing. I think that you are going to get a lot of value from it, so do subscribe to my Channel. It is brand new (as of 5 September 2018), so pardon me if there is only a few videos. I will continue to post the training videos on the channel every week. Here's the link to my YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCY7IhZ5Uq_qFB9PgN8Rjy3g

2) Subscribe to my 10 day email course to help you get started (if you haven't already). Please let me know your email address so that I can put you on the list.

3) Those who ask questions, interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their goals. Watch this video here to learn how to maximize your community reach in WA More buddies means more support. More support means more success.

4) You can get started learning how to make money by doing your Level 1 Certification Course. Here's the link to the course: Remember that you can ask any questions you want in the live chat, on your personal blog, or in the Getting Started Classroom here:

Also, in case you haven't heard my stories about how I made my first dollar online to how I fired my boss and never looked back, you can check them out here. Many WA members find them inspiring and it helps them understand the emotion and psychology about being a true internet entrepreneur:
