About MarkA1
Joined March 2017
Hello!

My name is Mark and I am currently a freelance writer, based in El Paso, Tx. Over the past couple decades, I've also been a truck driver and auto technician, among other things. My biggest interests are making money online, reading, history and playing guitar (or bass). As much as I enjoy writing, I've grown tired of writing for other people's sites and blogs - which is why I'm here. It's time to get my own sites going and kick this thing into high gear! Looking forward to meeting some like-minded entrepreneurs and learning everything I possibly can.

Hello Mark and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you may have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep up with the training and keep referring to it but if you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 400+ blogs I have published within WA.

You can always get in touch with me as well.

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

Wow! A fellow Texan! I currently live in Wise County near Fort Worth but I grew up in West Texas (Midland, Monahans and Odessa). I have lived in Texas most of my life (a couple of years in Missouri). I’m looking forward to becoming a more active affiliate. So far I can’t think of a “niche” for me - any suggestions? Looking forward to getting to know you better.

Hello, Gwen! Yes, it is nice to meet a fellow Texan. What sort of subject matter are you interested in? If you're looking for a niche, I'd start with whatever you find interesting enough that you wouldn't mind immersing yourself in it further, whether it's interior decorating, knitting, dogs, or sports. I'm doing both training programs, the regular certification and the bootcamp. So basically, I'm building two sites at roughly the same time. The one for the regular certification course is a self-improvement website, since I'm heavily interested in that sort of thing. The other one is for the affiliate bootcamp, so that one is about home business opportunities. You can build a site around anything, really.

That's the spirit Mark! Your tired of a job that you have to work hard writing. You want your money to start working hard for you.

That's great! Most people think you have to work hard to earn money. I'm glad you changed the way you think.

Use what you know and make it work hard for you while you relax at the beach drinking fruit punch.

Absolutely! When I think of the massive word count trail I've left behind me freelancing, I could have written hundreds of books and created websites for each one. I still have to do it for awhile, though. It's paying the bills until these sites get off the ground. But I had to start somewhere and this seems like the best way to go.

Mark, Thanks for following me, brand new here. Please let me know if you believe this is something that we could market on our websites someway and how. It just came to the states months ago (but it is in 195 other countries as well) and I believe everyone on here could crush this. www.healthydays.helo.life. thanks - thewitsterrr
yes, believe it or not, by username for the business is "Healthydays", if that doesn't tell you how new this is, I don’t know what does.

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! :)

I think I've figured mine out. I was originally going for self-improvement, but concluded that it was way too broad a niche. So I'm considering the narrower angle of "developing mental toughness" for this first one. I'm also considering the affiliate bootcamp for my next site. Both of these niches involve persistent themes in my life, so I know I can get stoked enough about them to give them my all.

Yeah, that is most definitely the direction you could head with your niche. If this is something that you are passionate about, definitely go for it Mark!

Thank you Mark for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. If you need any help remember to post your question in the comments section or on live chat, and someone will be able to help you.

I created a short but informative training tutorial for all New Members that tell you what you can do here at WA and most importantly give you a link to the RULES of WA and what you cannot do here. If you have the time or wish to, please check out the rest of my training, listed under my picture on my profile page. I explain ways to help you build a better website, ways to make some extra $$$ with your WA training, and best practices here at WA. I occasionally post a humorous blog on first Sunday of every month. Enjoy!
