About Maz
Joined February 2008
Hi I'm Maz

I live in England. I used to live in London but moved to Suffolk 5 years ago. It's lovely here in the country so tranquil and peaceful, lots of birds, a squirrel and some hedgehogs and frogs etc in the garden, I think I'm in heaven (ex Londoners will know what i mean!).

I originally joined Wealthy Affiliate in 2008 but left in 2011 for personal reasons. I have now rejoined (March 2013) and am starting from scratch again.

I have always loved it here at WA and it's great to be back!

Hi Maz, just introducing myself as I am new to WA. Just starting the lessons. I have absolutely no tech knowledge so alot to learn, I see you are from the UK . My husband and I live in Australia after moving here from the UK in 1998 ( North Devon where we had a chain of fish and chip shops). . I was just reading your profile while watching " Escape to the Country"....love that program although it always makes me homesick ! Hopefully we will be successful in this.....no, we will be successful in this so we can make regular trips home.

cheers

Hi Maz,
Lovely to see you are still here. Was worried for a moment when I noticed that there doesn't seem to be blog entry since last July. I came back with the special offer for previous WA members. Had intended to come back once before when there was an offer to lock in the previous price, but I missed it because I was in Vienna with my mother very ill in hospital and didn't have an internet connection. Hope you're still doing well.

Hello Maz, I just came across your pic and realized I'd not heard of you in a while. It's interesting that you are from England because I have a thing right now to go to London. I've been there twice and loved it. Right now all I watch it's British movies :) Love the accent. I would love to hear you talk LOL.

Hi Sylviane, it's lovely to hear from you. I must admit I haven't been very active at WA lately, have been busy doing P3. I'm still making squidoos tho. It's nearly spring here in England, been a long winter this year. Lol yes I have English accent (check out my resources - how to add an image in site rubix) but voice was a bit croaky that day lol..

Hi Bob
When I joined WA I knew absolutely nothing about internet marketing and have learnt so much now. I would advise you to begin with the Wealthy Affiliate Action Plan, then if money is tight, consider article marketing. It is a lot of hard work but you can use all the free methods. The thing is to stay focused and learn at your own pace.

Hi Maz,
Things are going slowly, but I've now got lots of ideas and lots of knowledge to put into practice. I'll be leaving WA for a while, but I'll keep in touch with my favourite buddies via their websites, Squidoo lenses or on the wqqc forum. I got David's 4-dmmb and keyword genius and have more information than I have time to use. I do love the WA community and plan to return at some point.

I'm giving you some of my gold - and will leave a comment on your lenses soon.

Hi Maz
My name is Filo and I am new to WA as I just joined last weekend.
Well i must say there is a lot to take in here with all the stuff you have to read.
But I think it will be worth it in the end.
I would like to have you as my buddy and hope to be able to get some tips if needed!
I have been quite busy for the past few weeks since I embarked on my Online Journey and wow did I have a blast!!
I live in London and have 5 children so you can imagine that how busy it can get.
Well I am here to stay this time as I am more determined now to follow this through.
Wishing you a Happy X-mas and hope to stay in touch.

Hello again Maz,

I NEED HELP!!! I almost feel like crying right now. I just spent hours and hours putting together what I thought would be my first article. I kept clicking the save article button in rapid writer throughout. When I finally completed it, I clicked generate duplicates and it took my back to the login page. MY ARTICLE IS NO WHERE TO BE FOUND!!! Is this common? Do I maybe just not know where to look for it. I see it in my campaings but with zero word count. I HAD 522 WORDS!!! Please help me. Also, I tried to copy the text before it disappeared and rapid writer wouldn't let me. Is this option not available.

Oh Eboni I'm really sorry to hear that and I know how you feel. Once you press save it should be saved. To copy or paste from RR you have to use your keyboard. Click into document then Ctr C to copy and Ctr P to paste.

Hi Maz,
I've come across you in the forum - definitely in the 'Time to Say Goodbye thread' by Neil 'Bigman' - and probably elsewhere. Today I've taken the time to read a bit about you and look at a couple of your websites. I sooooo agree with you that it's really easy to get sidetracked and the next you know an hour or two has passed.

I have 'felt free' to add you to my buddy list. Will be in touch again. I'm just about to sign up with Squidoo using PPG's Squidoo guide. I'll then comment on a couple of your lenses.

Can relate to your feeling of bliss living in the countryside. My daughter lived in London for a few years, but when her older child reached school age they decided to move to the country. She wasn't going to bring up her children in London...

Take care
Isabella

Hi Isabella
Thank you for visiting, it is lovely to hear from you. Yes I remember you from Bigman's thread, you were so trying to help him!

Squidoo is great when you get the hang of it. PPG is great and her guide will help you.

To Maz:

Hi! How are you doing in reaching your marketing goals? I am glad that you found WAU as well and take advantage of its vast amount of resources.

My advice is to...
1. Do legit / ethical business with others.
2. Find a niche market (a product / service that is unique).
3. Timing of the product - "Do not promote the microwave before people know how to safely use electricity."
Simply, is there a need for the product / service?
Show and tell people will help them before you market your product service.
4. Teamwork - Find mentors that TRULY want to help you succeed.
Wealth is hidden from those who must do it all themselves. Be a leader.
Help others by empowering and teaching them how to be successful.

Sincerely,

Shaun

Hi Maz, someone is coming up on their one year anniversary with WA. Congratulations! Being new to internet marketing 11 months ago and to look at your sites now...you have done well! I hope your income is matching your spirit and persistence. Much continued success to you. I plan to still be here 11 months from now and going strong in IM just like you have. See you around, Chris

Maz, looking at times I hit a plateau in my life...I either gave up or I took a break. Either way I eventually realized that if I looked at things in a different light they didn't seem so bad or the answer was right there. Why not spend a little time going back to the basics? Take a stroll back through all the tutorials in the Learning Center. I know time is at a premium to be reading something a second or third time but one nugget you didn't catch before may be all that you are missing.

Do something different and you will get a different result! Hope to see a post from you that something clicked!

Hi Maz, I hope you can help as I keep reading different responses. When doing keyword research what is min number of searches that you should look for and what should the max competition be for a particular key word phrase? I have been using min 5000 for the search with max 150,000 competing pages. What do you think?

Thanks for the message. How can I help you? My general advice would be to stay focused.
