About Marcus WFHW
Joined May 2012
Marcus here...it's great to meet you!

I've been a member here for many years, and in that time WA has helped me to completely transform my life. The 9-5 is long gone, I work when and where I want, and most importantly I have been able to spend more quality time with my loved ones.

When I first joined WA I was working in a factory and had very little experience in online business. If you find yourself in a similar position then WA has your back!

Everything you need to succeed online is available to you here at WA. Embrace the community and never forget that YOU must take action if you want great things to happen :)

Thanks for stopping by my profile and I wish you every success on your own WA journey!

Cheers,

Marcus

Hi, Marcus.

I just realized I hadn't been following you. I don't know how I made such a huge oversight, but I've corrected it!

I have some (admittedly, nosy) questions. If they're too nosy, don't answer: I won't be offended.

I realize what WFHW stands for: 'Work From Home Watchdog' (GREAT site, by the way!)

Do Neil (Neil Little, prev. Big Man,) Tony (MissionOps) and Terri (Skiergal) still work on it, too?

What does WAFF stand for?

It's impressive you've been with WA for nearly 11 years! Congratulations on making it to the Super-affiliate Vegas conference multiple times! How many times have you been?

Hi Sharon and thanks for your kind words!

WFHW has evolved greatly over the years, and Terri, Tony and Neil have not been involved for a number of years now. I run everything on my own these days.

Regarding WAFF, that was my original WA account and refers to a promotion that I ran MANY years ago! It was called 'Wealthy Affiliate For Free' (WAFF), and it worked at the time because WA didn't have a free trial or starter membership. When WA changed, I did too :-)

As for Vegas,,,now there's a question! I think I might have been 4 times now, plus I've been unable to attend a few due to commitments at home.

I hope this helps to answer your questions and I wish you every success on your own WA journey!

Cheers,

Marcus

You've made SPECTACULAR progress over the years. Congratulations!

WA has wonderful resources and offers many opportunities for success. However, it's your own cleverness, hard work and perseverance (and, I'm sure, several sacrifices along the way) that turned those resources into such monumental successes for yourself.

I admire that very much.

Thank you for answering my nosy questions and for all you do to help your fellow community members. WA is richer for having you in it.

I wish you all the best in your future endeavors!

Hi Marcus,
I just found you via your Work From Home Watchdog site. Thank you for the great information.
I recently started my journey here with WA and still have an incredible amount to learn. I think I will be spending a good amount of time going through the remainder of your site.

Good to meet you.

Hello! Marcus,
Thank you for your welcome note. This is the first time I am ever trying something that I would enjoy, I am so new in the online business. I have decided to do this cause I am looking for a work at home job but unfortunately it is so hard to find anything honest and a decent income.

Even though I not only have extensive experience in administration in the corporate business world, but I also have 3 years of experience as a teleservices customer care agent, team manager and lead trainer in the international Business Process Outsourcing (BPO, call center) industry. I have worked with people of varied backgrounds in dynamic environments. What I am trying to say is that with all the experience I know this will be a good fit for me and I will be successful, I do understand it will take time but I know I can reach my goal and my dream. But the matter is to get started, so I have decided to take my first step.

I have thought and researched niche's of touch phones and recipe books. Thinking of opening 2 websites one for each which is free from the starter member. Was just wondering if you could help me with any advice you would have. As I am open to any suggestions. I would admit I'm confused regarding this decision.

I would love to upgrade to premium at some point but right now I don't have the means to. I do appreciate this network and community that gives is a great opportunity to learn so much from. Thank you all for such great support.

Best Wishes,
Sarah

You are very welcome, Sarah, and it's great to hear that you have put your trust in WA!

Settling on a niche often confuses people.

They think it needs to be some perfect corner of the Internet that no one has heard of, but the reality is that so many people create successful online businesses about the same things!

I guess what I'm trying to say is...there is room for everyone :-)

My suggestion to you would be to view your niche ideas from a problematic point of view. By that I mean, out of all your interests...where are the REAL problems that people need help and advice with?

Problems = a need for a solution.

Analyze your ideas and if a niche doesn't really present any of those problems...it might be tough to monetize.

So as an example and (hopefully) a constructive way to move forward...what problems do you think exist within the niche ideas that you have mentioned?

Please don't think I am testing you here...I'm just trying to guide you towards the right mindset :-)

Niche markets that are crying out for solutions offer the greatest potential...don't forget that.

And if you can learn to eliminate those that don't require any obvious solutions early on...your online life will be a lot easier!

Have a think and let me know. I'm happy to help you to come up with the best niche idea for you personally :-)

All the best,

Marcus

Hi Marcus,

Thanks for your emails. I have a limited time here in WA because I am still working under contract here in Qatar. But I am going thru the Lessons during night time. I am almost done with Lesson 1. And I hope to complete all the Lessons within next month.I signed up and bought some softwares like Stream Store and have signed up to Amazon for future on line store. But i still not sure how I can use the Stream Store in Wordpress or within WA. I have no idea. I just thought it would benefit me in the future.Anyway I just want to say hi and assure you that I am reading your mail.Thanks.

That's great to hear, Virgilio, and great work doing the training in your spare time!

I am not entirely sure about the compatibility of Stream Store within WA, but I suggest using Site Support here at WA to find out. Here's the link:

Keep up the great work and definitely keep me in the loop with your progress!

All the best,

It's soo confusing, I read all of your warnings and it truly enlightened me, I will be more careful in the future, but the confusing part is that your company has several of these​ things
Going on, I wish that more someone like myself ( homebound ) that it was all just easier to understand, I sincerely want to be able to rely on myself for income, instead of welfare ( which I am great ful to have) I am enthusiastic but very skeptical.... Thanks Sue

Hi Sue,

It's great to have you here at WA and please be aware that it's perfectly normal to be overwhelmed when you first join.

The important thing is to take everything one step at a time, and in that respect the 'Getting Started' training is your best starting point as it breaks the whole process down. Here's the link: I hope this helps for now, Sue, and feel free to drop me a line if you need a hand with anything.

All the best,

Marcus
