About Markos84uk
Joined July 2018
I'm Mark. An English professional working magician/web designer/developer/self taught marketer. A family guy with a beautiful wife and amazing little boy called George, who is 19 months old at the time of this description.

I was a bit chubby/overweight/obese and started getting into shape, and taking a bit too seriously now! So I've started to document my journey by writing a blog to inspire a few others and make some money off it while doing so.

A nice little income from my magic and bit of design on the side keeps us going and I have time each day to commit to making a successful blog.

I look forward to getting to know you all!

The dream is to be able to take my wife and son to New York for Christmas 2019 (maybe 2018?). Ideally a First Class flight too!

UPDATE: Tickets are booked.

So you make magic? Loved it when I was a kid still do. You can make magic at Wealthy Affiliate with your website.

When you go premium the magic starts to happen. I wish you every success on your business venture

Thanks Richard, have you done well with WA since going Premium? I'm not sure why, but I'm skeptical about signing up to go further.

Seems a lot of people signing up which is great for WA, but hard to see if they're benefitting?

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! :)

Thanks Kyle, my niche will be the Getting Started with Weight Loss niche. I'm documenting my progress from fat to fit as a professional magician!

I've built my own blog template from scratch and created the branding. Hopefully my design and branding experience will help me along the way!

I'm not using the Wordpress website, but I've still read the info to take other tips where I can. The CMS I use is really powerful for SEO. Time will tell!

Love it, and it is a niche that it sounds like you will be able to share a lot of stories, successes, how to, ups/downs, etc.

Wordpress is by far the most widely used, supported, and reliable platform (and the best for SEO), but it is completely up to you what you use as there are many out there.

Hi Mark you have some great skills. I am following you and look forward to watching you reach your goals. Have you ever been to New York? It is an amazing place to visit.

Hi Mary, thank you for the message and the follow. We've never been, I know it so well from reading about it and video games (when I was younger!).

I'd love to be able see our boys face light up when he see's all the toy stores and Christmas lights. I always think Americans really know how to get into the spirit of Christmas more than we do.

How is your progress going, have you been at it long? There is a bit of me that is nervous about going further, but what do I have to lose?

My progress is slow, but that is for a couple reasons, first I am not totally convinced I love the niche I a following, so writing content is not at all exciting and secondly I have not worked very hard at it. I started November 2017, but I would come home from work and think to myself, I will get to it tomorrow and so on. In the last 3 weeks I have started going over everything and working daily, so I guess I am almost new at things.

** Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Mark **

At this very moment, you are exactly at the starting point of your journey and this is the "place" where myself and many other successful WA members got our start.

Looking around this website, I know it can be a bit intimidating and you are right, it can be - but all you need to focus on at this very minute is to:

// Fill out your profile bio (something short and sweet)
// Add a picture
// Familiarize yourself with whole WA site.

Have a browse around Wealthy Affiliate and start seeing what this community is really about.

Many come to this site seeking freedom. I know that's what I was looking for when I first became a member sometime back in June of 2012.

Yes, I have now been a premium member for many years and even though I have managed to crack the formula of making money online, I still remain a loyal member because here because there is no better community that the one you've just joined.

A Bit About Me

Like you (probably), I was sick of the "normal life".

Wake up, go to work, hate it, come back, watch TV, hate it, sleep, wake up and repeat.

While it's nothing to complain about (maybe just a bit), it's a life of "average" and I knew I deserved better - and you do too Mark.

Making the decision to "start" is one of the best decisions to make when you are starting out and you did it - now it's time to put that motivation into action that gets the results you desire.

What do you want to get out of this Mark ?

Knowing what you are here for will help align your goals and help you move forward with a sense of direction, which I promise you will help a lot when things get tough.

Why would things get tough? There's no easy wins here.

Wealthy Affiliate teaches you how to build a business online and not some easy-way-to-riches.

There's no such thing and hopefully, you're not here looking for quick-riches but rather to develop a set of skills which YES, can make you riches in the coming months if you do the necessary work.

Should You Go Premium?

That I would leave it up to you, but for now; you do not have to worry about that.

Simply start the training and then see for yourself if building an online business is something you want to commit to.

As I said, I have been a premium member for over 6 years now and I still find it valuable to me, maybe it will be the same for you or maybe not, only time will tell.

However, I'd suggest you make up your mind quickly about WA and get the discounted "bonus offer" for your first month as a premium member.

What Do You Get With "Premium"?

Ohhh, so, so much.

I'd be a shame to spoil it for you but I will leave you with this; it's where you "Wealthy" affiliates are made.

Let me know if you have any questions. I'm online most of the day here in WA so I can get back to you quickly.

Just drop me a message below saying "Hello" when you read this so I know you're here ready to get to work.
