About MartinaDKH
Joined April 2016
Heya!

My name is Martina and I move around between Canada and the US a lot. I have an engineering background and my passions include horses, helping others and fine art. I'm a blogger, internet marketer and investor.

I love helping out people when I can here and also outside of WA in the cryptocurrency space.

I've always loved learning new things and trying new experiences but I simply hated the idea of being forced to have a job from 9-5 (or more likely nowadays 8-6) and having a boss telling me what I should be doing with my life and my time. I have no problem spending whole days studying, learning and working when it's me who wants to do it - funny how that works, eh?

So when I first learned about affiliate marketing I instantly fell in love with the idea! Doing all the hard work up front on something that you're passionate about in order to reap the benefits later?

Maybe like some of you, initially years ago I fell for the schemes all over the internet more than once with their countless up-sells, tiny success rates and no description of what the company actually does. Don't you hate how psychologically manipulating so many of those up-sells were? Or worse when the first price was like 10k but then after 10 clicks saying "no", you can now get it for only $1000 dollars but you have to order it right this second and you'll never ever see this offer again! It makes me cringe thinking that I ever fell for that sort of thing.

I feel very fortunate to have found a home here. And I am so thankful to Kyle and Carson as well as Dom and some other of the awesome members here who have helped me on my journey so far!

I wholeheartedly believe that we are all in this together so if I can ever be of help, don't hesitate to reach out!

I would love to hear more about your story so say hi below and let's chat :)


Warmly,

Martina

Hi Martina!
I completely under about running across those schemes, the ridiculous up-sells, and all of those "If you buy right now!" sales pushes. They're bordering on criminal, if you ask me. Thankfully the training here teaches us to be much better, and honest in our promotions. I couldn't bring myself to be one of those scam artists, pushing a junk product on honest people looking to better their lives.
Here's to all our success, and best luck to you!

Hey Nathan!

100% I agree and it just discourages people so much from doing anything online and tarnishes the reputation of all internet marketers which sucks for those of us who are actually trying to do something right

Best of luck to you too - we're all in this together :)

Hello Martina, Welcome! (◠‿◠✿) Nice to meet you, I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right under training (click on my picture). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hey Martina, thanks for the follow, it was good talking to you yesterday and I wonder did you come to a decision on your domain :) can't help but be curious now lol. I've been here a month now and am still loving it so I'm sure you will too, if I can help anytime just give me a shout and good luck, pleasure to meet you Tracy :)

MartinaDKH Premium
Hey Tracy!
It was great talking to you - you and Craig were so helpful :) I have come to a tentative decision with equestrianbootsandbridles - I was also thinking just bootsandbridles but the Istagram name and some other social media platforms for those names are already taken and I've heard that being consistent in that department is definitely a good thing.
What do you think?
Pleasure to meet you too!
Reply
tracyq66 Premium
yes Martina, I like bootandbridles has a nice ring to it and you are right you will want the name to be free for social media too, if you want to play around with domain names try using this site I found: http://www.namemesh.com/ it will tell you if social media for the domain name you want is also free and it wont cost you anything to use it :)

Great, thanks so much for the suggestion! Currently I'm using knowem.com which also works pretty well :) but I'll definitely check that site out as well and see if there's any differences

Hey there Martina!

I just wanted to see how things were going here for you in Wealthy Affiliate. How do you like it so far? Hate it, love it? Regardless of what the answer is make sure you reach out to me at any time just to vent or chat about your progress so far.

By the way, Martina, I just wanted to recommend something to you if you don't mind. As a successful affiliate at WA here now for a few years, I've referred thousands upon thousands of new members.

One thing I have to recommend is....consider going Premium if you haven't already. It's so worth it. Not only will you get a ton more support, get all the advanced training (so important) and save a bunch of time, but you will also receive exclusive one-on-one help from me.

I know sometimes new people are a little bit hesitant and want to explore around first and that's fine. But the members I've seen excel have always took action a little quicker.

Just a little something to keep in mind.

Looking forward to hear about your progress!

Hi there Nessa! I think I will - just wanting to get through the first course and then I think I will get rolling and full steam ahead.

Thanks so much for the support! I definitely love it so far - its amazing :) I'm very happy to be here. I just wrote my About Me page for my first website. I'm sure it needs work but its a start! And if I go premium I get one on one support with you? How does that work?

Best of luck to you

MartinaDKH Premium
Hey Albert! Sure I would be happy to - I've just decided on a niche today. Great that you have so many :) Probably going to upgrade to Premium soon - I see you already have. It seems very worthwhile

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! :)

MartinaDKH Premium
Hey Kyle!

I actually asked in one of the comment sections about the niche I would like to pursue.
I think I've decided on equestrian equipment and apparel - I've always been an avid horseback rider so I have some background knowledge.

I also hope to have my own horse and maybe even farm someday so learning about good stuff to buy is something I'm passionate about and interested in.

What do you think?

Thanks!
Martina

MartinaDKH Premium
Hey Kyle! Just wanted to update you that I just went premium, and I think my next steps are to continue with my niche website for equestrian equipment and apparel as well as an affiliate blog for WA :) Currently I have a free site set up for the equestrian niche under the domain name royalequineequipmentandapparel.siterubix.com - but I'm debating whether I should just switch this to my own domain or think up a shorter domain name? This one might be too long in retrospect. I am also trying to think up a good audience to target for promoting WA, I went through some of the training and extra resources so hopefully I think of something soon :)

Kyle Premium
Awesome, congrats on going Premium!

If you want a domain of your own, you can purchase it through here at WA yes. Domains are things that you actually OWN just like real estate and if you want your own .com domain, you will need to purchase it. By all means get rolling on the free .siterubix.com websites though harry, you can always transfer over to your own domain name down the road using the Move feature included within the Premium membership.

When you are ready to purchase a domain, you can do so through the following page:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/domains

If you want to run any domain ideas by me before you purchase them, let me know and I iwll be more than happy to give you a hand. :) Let me know if you need any further help.

MartinaDKH Premium
Great thanks so much! Yeah I saw that - I am planning to buy my own domain for sure. And yes help would be great! I've been brainstorming in the live chat with some other members who were super helpful - I was thinking "equestrianbootsandbridles.com" for an equestrian equipment and apparel niche? Also for promoting WA, I was thinking "dontwantaboss.com" targeted at people who are sick of working at their day jobs? For now I'm just sticking with the free sites and starting to build up my content until I fully settle on my names and stuff
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, both domains could definitely be good ones! I like them and if you want to head in the direction of these, you should feel comfortable with it. :)

Hi Nessa! Thank you :) I really appreciate the support - and I also want to thank you for creating your blog that I got this link on. I was about to sign up with EmpowerNetwork...and I'm very happy now that I didn't. This is the first affiliate program that I really think I can believe in and doesn't just want to scam people!
