About Merryman88
Joined December 2013
I'm 71 years young Live with my Thai wife and daughter in North Eastern Thailand , Ubonratchathani, I am retired from the daily Grind and am able to follow my dreams of succeeding in Internet Marketing, have made all the usual mistakes so far spent lots of money and time on all the B. S - however I have learnt a lot on the journey , I can now differentiate between the scammers and the genuine article , I very interested in Bitcoin the new Cryptocurrency and the growing popularity of this virtual currency, its worldwide growth and acceptance by the business community. I would like to do more in marketing and spotted the Wealthy affiliate system while I was investigating another marketing system that turned out to be another of the many on-line scams - I have learned some successful methods of driving traffic to a websites having successfully sold a 30 day diabetes cure system I'm not sure if it works but I have no complaints from anyone on my mailing list Plus I have had no charge backs on any of my sales which is always a good sign.
I recognize that I need to learn a lot more about internet marketing if I am to obtain my goals in this industry . I would like to travel a lot more , Build a house in Thailand for my Family Buy a car so I can stop riding this silly Honda motorbike everywhere - not only is it uncomfortable its also Bloody dangerous at my age. I have a reasonable retirement income but not enough for the occasional luxury so I soldier on with Dreams and goals - Remember always have your goals well defined - this will help you succeed in your endeavors also give you the necessary direction -
Anyway good luck all those who read this and follow me

Hi Ray,
Are you still in Thailand? Are you still interested in Cryptocurrency or Virtual Currency? Given the political and economic turmoil in the world, it seems that there has never been a better time.

Keep up the good work merryman. It's quite an accomplishment to be over their in Thailand and having a family and your doing well for an older guy like myself. I'm just starting and do not have a clue about this business other than being scammed a few times. Take care, Jeff

merryman88 Premium
All Currency is Virtual even the Fiat Currecies, Cryptocurrencies are by their very nature a new one, There is no central control , its controlled by the people who subscribe to it, its completely open source and can be audited by anyone, at the moment it is very volatile but even through all this it is gaining a position in international and thousands of people and businesses throughout the world are taking it

Hello Laura,
in the comments on your site, I told you how extra special your site is it is one of the most engaging sites I have ever reviewed , I read it from back to front and I am sure if you persist this way in future you will have great success its all about giving your customers value and making them want to return again and again the information you gave is probably not known by 99.99% of the worlds population , its all engaging, interesting and very informative The one comment I would make is that you put a few more pictures in but do it with great care your Balance is almost perfect . And I would get that comment software sorted because all the comments you get on your site, Good and bad help towards your SEO rankings

Once again Congratulations on a Job well done.

:), Ray, you are not talking about my site here, I'm sure. Comments don't disappear in the thin air, not even in the virtual one. :) Besides, the way you talk about my site.... I would be really happy if my site would be like this, but it's not, it doesn't even have much content. And I am having problems with my fonts, I cannot manage to make them stay as I want them to, like they have a will of their own.... Take a look again, it's http://healthywithhoney.com/
But if you rediscover the site you liked that much, please give me the link, I would love to see it too.

Its alright George I ride like dare I say it "an old codger " very very carefully , But I have driven in worse places than this Florence and Rome in Italy for example if you can survive there you can survive anywhere , I was a bit younger then, but I did drive in Tokyo when I was 70 - but I would prefer a car,

Thanks for the concern

Merryman88 it was just a rogue agent joining WA to cause problems within our Community accusing Kyle and Carson of a number of bad business practices...but I believe Kyle adressed it in his answer to me pointing out what he really was...is a trouble maker from another company here to just cause problems.

Hey Ray, took a stumble over to your site. Thought it best first to message you here.
I thought the layout and content was alright, but I think you need to break up your writing with some pertinent imagery. It is more pleasing on the eye and will hold your reader's attention better.
Let me know when you've done this and I'll pop back and leave you a comment.

Thank you for the follow. I read a couple of your posts about your problems. I feel your pain! Had similar problems myself. Sorry to hear, but let me say it made me feel better knowing I wasn't the only one. Switching to Chrome solved so many of my problems. Had the same problem with Word so I started using the WP editor, still working on similar problems. DON'T GIVE UP! Together we'll get through this. Best of luck to both of us!

Hi Steven (Is that your Name ) I cant keep writing 'I've tried that' I am bowled over by this group they are so enthusiastic The training is fantastic and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel Unlike empower Network The general Support here is the very best , there is room for improvement, Nothing is ever perfect but this system is the closest I have seen so far on the internet , it certainly gives you confidence and I can see the money hitting my account in the near future, I wish I'd have found this site three years ago, I watched the first SEO video this morning most of this training I had already done on other courses but I still learnt something new I always thought that good back links were part and parcel of good SEO practice, But in that video Kyle said it was not important and that there was a lot of misinformation regarding SEO Never mind I expect I will find out much more when I upgrade to Premium next week , I am looking forward to this next time I writ I will be a premium member ..

Thanks Mate for your Introduction this training is the Tops I cant wait until I can start introducing it to others who are in the same boat as I was That feeling you get when you realise that at last you have found a home that will help you achieve your goals is Fantastic and I want to be able to give it to others .
I can see us becoming great friends and colleagues over the coming months

All the best
