About MichalB
Joined November 2017
I am Mike (actually Michal), from Slovakia, Europe. I was born in summer of 1980 in the same country as I am coming from :)
(back then it was still Czechoslovakia)

As mechanical engineer I found first regular job in Prague in 2003.
After couple years, I moved to North Germany, working in aviation industry. That job brought me to south France (Toulouse) and couple times back and forth between Toulouse and Hamburg.

I have spent nice times working in that Airbus engineering field but somehow got tired of corporate job so I moved back to Slovakia and decided to work on my own. It is not that easy so I still gotta go to my 7a-3p job just to pay my bills.
My goal is to quit that job and be a full time affiliate marketer, not later than September 2018 - earning at least 50K USD a year. (I did update - March 2018 changed to September 2018).


I love traveling (been 4 times in US, many times in Italy, last spring went to Vietnam for 3 weeks. Wanna go to Africa, wanna buy a BMW 1200GS Adventure and Lincoln Mark IV :) )

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me, or leave a comment.

cheers

Hello Mike ... thank you for the follow. You've had an adventuresome life so far. You have some ambitious goals, driven mostly I suspect by your desire to get out of the Day Job rut (the generic term for this here in the US is the 9 to 5 rut).

I wish you the best on your WA journey.

Hi Dennis,

Thank you for following me back.
You are absolutely right.
I want to leave the 9-5 routine.

I took 2 days off last week, so I can simulate my working activity - as being my own boss.
I liked that very much :)

Cheers

Hi there, Michal!

I've gotten a little behind in responding to new followers, so now that I have a quiet moment, I wanted to thank you for adding me to your network.

You've really done some extensive traveling. All the best as you develop your online business and say goodbye to that 7-3 job!

All the best, Michal.

I think I will leave Himalayas after the Africa ;)

And for me - I would do the trials only.
Zero experience in climbing:)

Hello Mike and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined 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.

Hey Mike

Thanks for adding me to your follow list buddy. I've added you to mine as well.

it's nice to see others who want to make a difference in their life by meeting with like-minded entrepreneurs in a platform that makes it possible.

I could go on and on about WA but, the truth is that when someone is committed to making money online they'll know immediately whether WA is for them or not. It's a no-brainer if you ask me.

Mike, it was a pleasure meeting you here on this platform. I wish you the best of success and hope that you accomplish your goals this year.

Be safe and God bless

Hello Michal! Thank you for following me. I hope you enjoyed your trip to Vietnam. I was born and raised in Vietnam. I now live in the United States. I took my children back to Vietnam with me in 2016 and they had a fantastic time. I too would love to travel. Being an Affiliate Marketer would definitely help.

Best wishes for a fantastic year in achieving your goals.

Hi Hà!

Thanks a lot for following me back.
I really enjoyed the trip to Vietnam.

We have spent in Vietnam with my girlfriend almost 3 weeks. Started in Hanoi and by train traveled thru Hue, Hoi An, Nha Trang and finished in Saigon.

3 weeks are not enough time to explore the country, but at least we got the feeling of the spirit and I am sure in the future we will go to Vietnam once again.

Lots of success to you as well :)

cheers

Looks like you hit the beautiful sites. Yes, there are a lot to explore. I have been back four times now and I still have not been able to see everything yet. If you have a chance, visit the northern part of Vietnam such as Sapa and Ha Long Bay. It's beautiful there as well. I was able to visit these locations on our last trip with my kids. The weather is also cooler there as well.

Have a great week!!!

Actually, we did the trip to Halong Bay. We took the boat for 2 days (1 night) and we had a wonderful time.
Even-though it was cloudy, we still enjoyed that very much :)

Same to you Hà :)

Hi Michal. I just saw your comment on Jessica Swangirl's blog and thought I'd come and say hi and follow you. Your comment made so much sense!

I am from Vienna in Austria originally but have lived in the UK since I got married over 45 years ago. My mother comes from just across the Danube from what used to be Czechoslovakia - from near Hainburg/Donau.

I wish you lots of success here.

Hi Isabella,

Oh, that is cool :)
I go quite often to Hainburg. It is about 75-80 min driving from my place.

Thank you Isabella - same to you.
I have respect for people who dive into the internet technology and all this stuff - since even I have tough time to follow all the updates.
The development grows so fast.

Have a great one
Michal (or Mike) :)

Hi Mike

Thanks so much for the follow, I'm following you back too :)

If you need some inspiration for your WA journey, feel free to check out my recent post:
I'm sure you'll agree, there's some awesome tools on here for Wealthy Affiliate members.

I use Jaaxy for all of my Keyword research and SiteContent to draft all of my posts for my website. Here's a little trick that will show you how beautifully these tools integrate and also SAVE you time:
Canva is also a great tool that's quite popular with other WA members, to design stylish graphics, like headers etc, for their websites.
Wishing you every success and feel free to drop me a line anytime!

Thanks for joining me into your network Mike! I am like you, I have a decent paying job but the production grind of todays business environment is often times oppressing. For me, it seems to cloud the joy I once felt for the work that I do. Too many regulations to contend with that take away the focus of what is enjoyable.

Anyway, it's great to meet you and I'm sure I'll be seeing you around the WA community. Hope those transition plans of yours are still on target for March '18!!

Hello Sukumarth,

I have been a bit slow in recent days .. vacation time and so on.
I know, not very original excuse :)

Anyways, I am getting back on the track so I want to finish the training in precise way.

Thank you Mike for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. As a Premium Member you are now in the process of creating content for your affiliate marketing website.

It is important to fully understand how you should go about creating that content that will produce high Google rankings. Using low competition keywords is only a small part of the process.

Google has a set of guidelines for people creating content on their affiliate marketing websites. They do not like affiliate sites that are heavy on the selling and light on the help.

Though this may not occur to you in the beginning of your affiliate marketing journey, offering help instead of selling to your website visitors will yield more sales.

When you have some time, read the brief training at the link below which will explain Google's guidelines in a more simplistic way. When you help instead of sell, you will see better results.

Thank you Robert,

just yesterday I was doing some research in order to get some info regarding my niche.

One of the site I found was pretty good - it just... right under the useful information there were direct links to amazon so one can buy that product.

I was asking myself - would I buy that ? Most likely I would not, since there is this direct sell involved.
My thinking was - OK in my site I will offer the content and value just as it is taught here at WA.

Your message just confirms that my thinking was right :)

I will definitely go thru the guideline you posted,

Thanks again Robert
Mike

You are welcome Mike. You will definitely sell more when you build trust with your website readers. This should happen before and during your monetization of your website. Then when you do advertise, do so in a subtle way.

Welcome to WA premium membership, you made a wise choice.
I created a training, that may help you organize your learning material here, and outside of Wealthy Affiliate. You can see it here: - hope this lesson will help you make your journey here on WA a little easier, and less overwhelming.

Hi Nathaniell,

Thanks for your welcoming message.
Actually I do feel good about whole WA stuff :)

Reason I say that is;
Last year I joined one guy and signed up for his training, but after month or so I signed out of his deal. Fortunately it was not a problem so I did not loose any extra money.
It was not so bad but to me that stuff he was teaching was not worth that 55$ a month.
I take it as a good experience :)

Here I feel myself like at the beginning of strategic game ->
first I need to look around, feeling lost.. but once i learn the rules I can win the game ;)

Looking forward to that.
Michal

No problem Michal. Work through the courses as you have time. As long as you are taking consistent action, you're on the right course.
