About Markus2009
Joined August 2014
Hmmm…..I guess I should type something now. Anyhow I am an IT Systems Integrator working for a fortune 500 company and have been in this position for ~ 1 yr. now. I have a total of 9 yrs. experience working in the IT field in various positions such as Systems Analysis, Software Development, Software Testing (System, Integration, Unit, Functional), Systems Administration, Data Architecture, Database Administration, and Software Code Deployment in the Telecommunications and Banking industries.

I currently live in the midwestern United States close to the St. Louis, MO area and have 2 beautiful daughters and a beautiful wife. We lead a very busy life, yet rewarding.

I joined WA because I’ve always had an interest in building an online business either by starting up a drop ‘n ship business or an affiliate website. I’ve tried another affiliate program, however found it was another scam that didn’t show me the ins and outs of starting a successful online business. I’m excited to see what WA has to offer and will hopefully be getting my niche website up and running very soon.

Hi Hollynd,

Sorry for the delay. Welcome to WA! You should start under Course 1 Lesson 1 under certification courses and start working through the lessons. I do warn you that there is alot of information here, but you can work at your own pace though. In addition, you can go through the Affiliate Bootcamp also if you want to get on the fastrack to promoting WA too. I did want to mention that there are live video classes that I have found very helpful to supplementing my knowledge here. If you have any question definitely let me know and I will definitely help you out. It might take me a bit to get back to you because I have a full time job besides trying to promote my website. The best of luck to you and your endeavors here at WA.

Mark

Hi Maria!! Thanks for the warm welcome. I'm making my way through the training right now and have part of my niche website up and running, but just the bare bones. I'll take a look at your post and give you my feedback. How long have you been with WA if you don't mind me asking?

ReinventMe Premium
Hi Markus.I've been here since last November.. The bare bones is fine! It takes time to fill it with quality content.. Mine isn't done properly at all - it needs photos and more content.! I've been concentrating on the reinvention for quite some time so everything else had to take second place around my family.
I tend to write blogs in different places to promote what I'm doing and I'm still learning in here!

Hi Fred,

Thanks for the reply back. I actually am doing well today and am excited to learn how to start my own online business using WA.

I just completed my profile setup and am currently on Lesson #2 right now in the basic training modules. I'm going to try to take the video training on how to pick a profitable niche. I have one in mind, however I would also like to make a decent profit too if I'm putting my extra time and energy into it. That only makes it more fun right?

Do you have a suggestion on how to pick a good niche to build my website? Do you have a suggestion on a good read or tutorial on how to pick one? Let me know.

Nice meeting you again and I will definitely keep in contact as I have free time to get onto WA.

Cheers,

Mark

Hi Mark,

How are you doing? I notice that you have not completed your account setup at Wealthy Affiliate. In case you are not aware that your new account is absolutely Free and you can keep it with you for Life!

I have friends who joined and set up their account and stay active at the Live Chat making friends and sharing their stories for quite a while now. I wonder when are they starting their training? You see, that's the wonder of online training, no one is keeping a record when you should come attend a lesson, you decide and no one else.

But now I saw you standing at the doorstep of one of the best online University around, I would urge you to at least complete your account setup and move on. Success is a journey and you need to take action. I started with my free WA account thinking only to try it out but now I have already moved ahead and absolutely benefited from it.

Mark, Completing your account set up will enhance your personal interaction within Wealthy Affiliate. Your choice name and image will help to convey a warm message across the community.

The following link is showing you how to complete your account set up :

Let me know if you have any question. I will be more than happy to help!

See you from the inside!

Fred

I wanted to take a few minutes to see how you are enjoying Wealthy Affiliate so far and to officially welcome you to the community.

I am here to help, as is Kyle, and many other awesome (and knowledgable) members. If you have any questions about getting started please let me know, or post your questions in the LIVE chat on the dashbaord.

My suggestion for getting started is the "Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1)" course found here:

Talk to you soon.
