Hello Dear Reader,

First, I would like to thank you for taking the time to read my bio.

Update October 2018

I think it's the time to have a proper bio and get to know me better :)

I'm a software engineer with many years experience under my belt as a software developer, Team Lead, Project Manager, Scrum Master and for the last 12 years working as an IT consultant.
I have always been passionate about computers, and in the last years, I start working with web design as well (CSS, HTML and all the great stuff). I find it very creative and recreative activity.

I developed websites and online web-shops for various clients, and I stumbled in the SEO, traffic, IM, promoting areas.
I start searching info and the first contact with Internet Marketing I have had it with Inbound Marketing.

The idea of having my website and share my experience was running around for some years, but I didn't know where to start. As an IT person, I have lots of ideas about creating an application, but I do not have a clue about selling and marketing. I needed something to share and generate revenue.

The next step was Email Marketing, but the solution which I choose was a paid one, too many products to buy, monthly subscriptions to pay and no result in the end.

I continued my searches, and I find Wealthy Affiliate mentioned on many websites. Skeptical, I create an account last year in December, I followed the first lessons, but I was still not convinced and give up.

This year in April, I abandoned the platform which I was using for Email Marketing, and I turn my eyes, again, to Wealthy Affiliate. I congratulate myself on this decision.

Since April, till date, I learned a lot and still learning every day. On the 6 months mark, I made my first sale and some Google AdSense earnings, which gave me more motivation and undiscovered energy to continue my project.
My goals are very well defined, and when I'm down, I read them and keep going.

Currently, I manage 3 websites, 1 primarily, second working to grow it and the third one is my hobby, still in the baby phase.

There were many posts related to the comments which are not returned, and I want to take this opportunity to let you know that I always return the favour.
I think it's a moral duty to do so; as others are having time to leave a comment, it's not hard to do the same.
I live in Stockholm, Sweden and depends on your geographical location, you may receive my comment a bit late, but be reminded that you will get it :)

If you need help, don't be a stranger, send an email, and I'll do my best to help you.

Till next time, wishing you success in your journey.

Best,
Maria

Hello Maria, And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep referring to the training.
If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 430+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me PM anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.

Hi Loes,

Thank you for following back. Trust me, I have fun and I've learnt a lot so far.
After I've created the account, I was a bit skeptical, I change with a different platform and I was not so pleased.
Since April I got back to WA and I start from the scratch.
The help provided in community is huge and I'm very thankful for this.

Thanks for the goodies :) For sure I'll through.

Thanks for letting me know that I have a helpful hand in you when I'm in need.

Best of luck,
Maria

Something that helps me stay focused is knowing that not so long ago every expert here was a lost newbie like me... and then I say, "Today, I will stay the course and I will not quit."
You too will make it big, Maria, Just don't quit... and remember,
We are the tightest team anywhere - reach out with questions. Stay involved, stay connected... before you know, you'll have this thing by the horns.
I'm here for you!

Hello, Maria.

Thanks for the FOLLOW and welcome to my small segment of Wealthy Affiliate. I am following you right back and hope to see you around the community in the coming weeks and months.

We all start out as "beginners," but just follow the training outlined by Kyle and Carson, and you'll be surprised at how quickly and how much you will learn. Also, it's important to do the lessons in order. Skipping around adds to the confusion because there is so much information, and the lessons build on each other.

Continued success,

Joshua

Congratulations on going Premium.

I have found the weekly webinar very useful to watch and now that you’re a premium member you can too.

One tip though… be sure the topic being covered is what you need right now otherwise it won’t be the best use of your time.

If you can’t or don’t want to attend live, there’s always the recordings. (See “Live Video Classes” under Training on the left hand menu.

Wishing you every success with your business goals for 2018.

How are things going today? Just wanted to pop in to see how things are going with you thus far and how your website/niche is coming along.

Hope you are rocking it Mariab and of course (and as always) I am in your corner if you ever need anything!

PS. Today is my last day for Premium bonuses, if you are interested in getting them make sure you upgrade today.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Hey Mariab,

I forgot to mention the other day that I am going to still be offering you my awesome bonuses if you join within the next 4 days.

Here are the bonuses that you are going to be getting:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)
(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there. Where else can you access the CEO of the company for help?
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well Mariab and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)

Here we are, 10 days into your experience at WA. :)

I hope things are going well Mariab! I want to remind you of one thing, your hard work and dedication IS going to pay off. Keep working through the training, communicating within the community, and of course, ask for help when you need it.

Just heading out for a bit here, but do leave me a message if you need a hand with anything. You should have Premium communication back for an additional 7 days now, so hit me up when you get a chance Mariab!

Kyle Premium
Just wanted to shoot you a quick message and see how things were going thus far Mariab? I am here to help if you ever need a hand with anything, just holler!

PS. Also, quick reminder. Today is the last day to get your first month discount/bonuses. No rush, no worries. Just a simple reminder here. :)

Hey Mariab! Today I just wanted to follow up with you to see how things are going! I hope all is well and you are enjoying yourself here within the Wealthy Affiliate community.

I want to make myself available to answer any questions or help with anything as you are getting started! Please touch base with me if you ever need a hand with anything or are feeling stuck, I am here to help. :)

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! :)
