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.

Hi Mojalefa!

Thanks for the nice words. I truly believe that unless you believe in yourself and take action then nothing will happen.

Booking the tickets is at the forefront of my mind, I have to make it work, and there is no other path to take.

I will see you at JFK airport my WA friend! You're going to have a great time with your family.

Hello, Mark. Nice meeting you. Enjoyed reading your interesting bio. How did you get into magic? Did you learn some of it as a kid? My son was interested in it for awhile when he was 12 or 13, but didn't keep up with it. Best wishes in your online endeavors. Thanks for following me. Followed you back. Carol

markos84uk Premium
Hi Carol, thanks for following back. Yes, I've been learning since I was about 7 years old.

When I was 12 or 13 I stopped doing magic for a while because I discovered girls. Then I found out that the girls didn't like me, so I carried on with magic. And here I am :-)

I found a girl eventually though!

Best wishes to you too, sounds beautiful where you live in North Carolina! I just looked up the area and it's stunning!

Yes, it is a beautiful place to live, and the people are so genuine and sweet. I came here on vacation in 1995, and something said "this is home, ya gotta move here", so when my son graduated from high school in 96, we did!

Thanks for your follow, Mark, and we follow you back.
Yes, we have both been guilty of overtraining! We worked as personal trainers/fitness instructors for years. Have it more in balance now...gotta watch our old knees!
You are a magician! How cool is that? Could be a great niche idea? You obviously have other skills that are perfect for this online marketing gig.
Sounds like you have a lovely young family to inspire you along the way to success here at WA.
We wish you happiness and prosperity!

Welcome to WA and congrats on going premium!

I'm pretty new here, I just joined last month actually. So far I have a website up and running, I also have began to post content. I’ve gotten positive feedback on both my writing style and my website.

This community has already helped me tremendously and I must say I've already learned a lot of valuable information here at WA. I believe you will too, that is if you haven’t already.

The future is yours! Wishing you much success.

Hi,

I want to welcome you to WA’s premium membership. This was a huge decision you made which should help you succeed as a successful online business owner.

I can remember when I went to premium membership back in September, 2009. This was a decision I have never regretted. As a premium member you have access to additional WA resources which are very helpful to your success. I like the weekly live Webinars at 5 PM Pacific by Jay Neill. These weekly webinars have been very helpful to me and my online business.

I want to wish you all the best as you become a very successful online marketer. Please share your success with the WA community.

Best wishes,
George

Hello Mark and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined and with your online experience you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep referring back 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.

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

Thank you Robert, I have indeed been reading through some of your useful articles.

It is definitely a steep learning curve, but very excited to be tackling it head on. I have a lot of time to give to and a supportive family which is a great feeling moving forwards.

The training on here is incredible, already far exceeding my expectations and I'm only on Level 2!

Have a great day too,

Mark

Welcome to WA. I wanted to post a thank you here on your profile page. For those that haven’t “met” Mark yet, I just wanted to let you know that he’s willing to help and provide constructive feedback. Out of the blue he replied to my with excellent points and suggestions. He even went as far as to create a logo for me (which is now in place on my site)!

Definitely say hello and get to know him.

Once again Mark, thank you for your help!

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! :)
Reply
markos84uk Premium
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!

Kyle Premium
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 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?
Reply
marycmiller Premium
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.
