About MichaelYi
Joined April 2017
Hello, my name is Michael and I'm a returning member to Wealthy Affiliate. I sort of got sidetracked before and tried pursuing other business opportunities but I'm back and ready to get back to work with this wonderful community!

I currently work as an online Tech Support Representative for an Internet Sevice Provider. It pays the bills for now while I continue to build up my online business.

In the past, I've worked in the Design Engineering field (CAD design) and still enjoy creating 3-D models when I get a chance. Some of my previous work can still be found on GrabCad.com. My favorite part about CAD is creating a 3D model and then seeing it materialize through 3D printing.

I am a huge Philadelphia Eagles fan who happens to live in Alabama (go figure). Obviously, I'm surrounded by Alabama and Auburn Football fans and have even attended a couple Auburn games in the past... great experiences!

My goal is to create multiple streams of passive income and Wealthy Affiliate will be a big part of my plans. I've got a few niche ideas swirling around in my mind but I'm definitely going to promote WA as I believe in the system wholeheartedly.

I dream of a future when I can just pack up my laptop and create blog posts from anywhere in the world. The days when I'm not confined to a single place because of a soul-sucking job. In my opinion, Wealthy Affiliate gives me the best shot at making this a dream a reality.

One thing I learned while I was away is that Wealthy Affiliate is by far the best value out there for those aspiring to create an affiliate marketing business. So, I'm back a little wiser but at the same time knowing that I've still got a lot to learn.

Hi Michael, nice to hear from you. I look forward to getting to know you my new WA friend. Sorry about the really long delay in responding but I am a bit slow at the moment. Trying to do too many things at once.

I see you have a website up and running. You might want to think about putting the links here on your profile page.

You do this by going to the right of your profile page, down to the bottom where it says 'Follow me on' and click on it. Put your website URL and any social media URLs you have (and want to add). This way people like me can hop in, visit and leave a comment. This makes it easier for us to follow you as this will be a direct link. And extra traffic is always welcome.

You should keep writing more blogs here on your profile page. These go into Google too so add to your online profile. Also if you are promoting WA these WA blogs help build trust with your referrals. They can see you are really involved here.

If you have time I would love it if you visited one of my websites and left a comment on a post, any one will do. The site addresses are on my profile page.

As soon as you have a website link here let me know so I can return the comment.

Keep working hard, having fun and don’t forget to ask questions.

A very nice boss once told me, ‘Helen, when you ask a silly question everyone else breathes a collective sigh of relief because they don’t have to!’ And that is so true. No question is silly so ask away.

If I can’t help I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Now let us keep in touch.

Ciao
Helen

Hey Michael...the task required to comment on 3 posts and in return they do the same...I visited 3 different post yesterday and commented on their posts, though have yet to see any in return...should that be done thru the site comments "give and take" process?...
Thanks in advance

Its so easy to get side tracked. I have been apart of WA for many years and just started the program. I am at awe of all of the knowledge that is available here.

It's all good, Michael I have been around the block a few times researching, but information overload.
There is nothing worse than spending time trying to learn a new program on your own I had to find to examine WA the goals a clear plan for internet success.
I wanted the future to be exciting times for me letting go of one goal that took years to reach and grabbing hold to one with all the struggle and uncertainty that comes with it. There is no better feeling in the world like that feeling of knowing you can win in everything you do.

Hi, thanks for the words of encouragement. This is a great platform that I believe can change our lives for the better if we follow the training and put in the work. I think in the past, I may have been looking for the shortcuts to success and for that reason, temporarily left WA for a while. I learned through experience that success online is fueled by motivation, desire, and the willingness to put in the work. I'm not where I want to be yet, but I am working towards it day by day. Whing you all the best and much success with WA.

Hello Michael ... thank you for the follow. Your skills and background are serving well here I'm sure.

I'm an old technology guy and am envious of your skill set. In my working life, I've worked with many CAD guys. I always found them to be technically insightful ... visionary really. They were so crucial to a new product launch.

I'm envious of your skill set and at this time in my life I would trade my old tech education for this skill set in a heartbeat. Success here is almost automatic. Just do the training and all the tasks. Should be a snap for you.

I wish you the best on your WA journey.

MichaelYi Premium
Thank you, Dennis. I haven't been dabbling in CAD as much lately because my attention has been devoted to WA but maybe someday I'll get back into it.

I actually thought what the manufacturing guys did was pretty cool myself...the machinists, welders, and fabricators were always very helpful to me when I first started my career in CAD design.

Now as I focus on developing my blogging skills, I find the WA community equally as helpful, if not more. It's great to have connected with you here and wishing you all the best.

Visit my site raybrannum.com to get to know me and see a couple of good affiliate sites where you can make money and build a team.

You are right about WA. They are the very best. I lost a lot of money before I found them. They are someone you can promote and feel truly good about it.

Really Highway 431 is one way north and one way south. My office is in the middle of the highway divide as you come off the Tennessee River Bridge and the last place on the left before crossing the bridge going north. It is a fun thing with me.

Hello Michael and Welcome back To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined and with your previous WA experience you may have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

If so you must keep up with the training and keep referring to it but if you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 400+ 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.

Thank you Michael for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. When first starting your affiliate marketing website many members have problems coming up with niche ideas.

Probably the one main problem is that people tend to over-think the simple process of finding a niche. Just sit back and look around you. You have niches everywhere. You are even wearing different niches.

Though it is important to fully understand that any niche can be profitable, there are certain niche markets that will be more profitable than others. You might think that the market is saturated but there is plenty of room to earn.

The niches in these 2 types of profitable categories (Evergreen and Passions) are plentiful and broad. Like all niches they will need to be narrow and focused. The more they are, the more profitable they become.

I created a tutorial that explains the differences in these two groups and provide you with many niche and sub niche ideas for each category. If you are having problems choosing a niche, click the link below.

Thank you for the follow back and advice. Although I've chosen to promote WA and have been following the WA Bootcamp, I'll still be sure to check out your tutorial on choosing a niche.
