About Mickeyb123
Joined May 2016
I have been involved in writing things for a lot of Internet Marketers!

I live in the beautiful Pacific northwest (Portland. Oregon. USA)

Looking into many different programs, a LOT of them simply scams, I ran across Wealthy Affiliate. I want to get in and find a home, if possible.

I would appreciate any assistance from anyone who wishes to extend a hand!

I have had quite a few jobs in my life, including 6 years in the Marine Corps. Most of them have been physically demanding; The last one morphed into training manager and a lot of desk work at a custodial company.

The dog in the picture of me is a German Shepard/Chow mix that belongs to my wife. (she is a rescue dog that my wife faced down a dog and wife abuser to get!

Back to me: I have been involved in a few things on the Internet since about 2005 and things have just not come together. The writing - Freelancing - that I do has helped everyone but me, so now it is time for me to shine!

Hi Mickey, Thanks for following.
I was looking into many different programs also and found a lot of them simply scams as well and then I ran across Wealthy Affiliate through naked scam. And so I am here wanting to learn and succeed this time!
Every best wish for your success....

I love painting pictures with words too. I live at the bottom of the world, facing the Tasman Sea on one side and the warm Pacific on the other.
Like you, I have tried several programmes, but feel that this one is the one that makes sense to me.
Good luck. Be bold with your life and lets step forward into the great unknown.

Well Mickey, I have been through a few programs as well and found the same as you, it is upselling all the time. Just buy this and you make $100 per day, when you buy it, you have a chance to spend more on the next one that will give you $200 pert etc.
This one is the first, where I ask a question and get answers and not just a brush off.
I am excited and learning.

HI Mickey, it seems you have moved up in this program a lot. Can I ask. I just started a few days ago. I'm signed up with every affiliate program out there but had no idea how to use them until now. Now WA teaches a lot about posting and blogging, I just want an online store with the affiliates I signed with. Do I have to write posts? or go through all the lessons. I learned a lot so far. Didn't think I could get this far but I'm going. Is there any particular lessons I should be focusing on or should I just continue through them all. Sorry for rambling!

Hey, my wife complains about m y rambling, so I understand Ramble.

You have a bunch of affiliate links, but what to do with them is the real question, isn't it?

My short, non rambling answer is to begin the Certification course, go through each lesson (you can do this in, actually, a couple of days. These lessons will indicate where to post those links on your website.

Yes, you need to post on your blog because this is what, if done properly, will attract traffic to your site. The content will inform readers about the affiliate products you are promoting and allow you to pre-sell those items to your visitors.

(It will all be explained by Kyle - just listen to him and he will not steer you wrong!)

You can always contact me or anyone else you like with any other questions!

Just came back from the doc with my mom. I'm trying to do an online store. I have a website I had done for me but its costing too much money to maintain. I was searching out another form of money and did a review on them and found out it was a scam, that's when I saw the link for WA. Clicked it and said I can do this. I opened a treasure chest here. I would have never been able to even have started what I started here without this training. My other website I paid for is virtualfashionimaging.com which is currently not working due to server issues. So I was going to cancel it and transfer it here. They said it would be up tomorrow morning, but I'm still going to cancel. The site I started here at WA is adressforyouandmore.com. I'm at course 2 lesson 4. So hope I don't give up. I am excited about all this cause I actually learned something.

I put on comment on your profile page about my observations when I went to your site. I think you are going to be quite happy with what you are going to be able to do.

Take a look at my first website: getridofboss.com.

I am working on 7 more right now.

Hello Mickey!
Hope you're doing well.

I have had a look at your Website (looking for inspiration) and I must definitively say you have the perfect Domain Name! The pictures brings it to the point as well.

I have chosen a niche within healthy living so I won't "compete" with you - I rather learn from you.

So have an awsome weekend now.

Hi Mickey!
I can fully understand where you are at in life. I have had my share of issues that seems to stay longer than normal. I am stepping out on pure faith in joining this place. I have no job with a incoming coming in weekly or monthly.
I have been unemployed for the Last five months and only work another job for a few months after being told by my doctors that I have Degenerative Disc Disease in my lower back and right hand.
I was a Manager at Wal-Mart for 15th years and loss my job within a matters of hours. So for me, I got to work this until something breaks in my life and besides I needy the income to come in so I can pay things off.
Check out adding me to you're page and if you see anything that can help me out please let me know and likewise the same here.

Hello Mickey and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.

If you do get stuck then can I suggest you browse some of the 300+ blogs I have published within WA.

Enjoy your day.

Hello Mickey,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, 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. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hi, Mickeyb123: Welcome!
I have been a WA member for about 1 month. I, too, have struggled with finding a good online business. But I came across WA and I have to say that I really like the community here. Everyone is very helpful and positive. I started with the Free version of WA and then upgraded to Premium after about 6 days of my 7 day free trial. I now have my website mostly written and I am almost ready to submit it for review within the WA community. I've taken a step by step approach to building my site, because I didn't have much experience with website building. You may progress more quickly because of your experience. But I do suggest going through the training courses and lessons step by step. Also, I found that if I follow people that are ranked as Ambassadors, then I get in their loop and I am notified of their many training sessions that are also available for free, once you become a Premium member. I'm thinking about going with the annual membership for Premium, because it works out to about $29/month. For everything you get at WA under their Premium membership status, I think it's a good deal, especially the website hosting. I bought my own domain name, and they host it here on their WA server. A much cheaper option for me rather than going through iPage, where they nickel and dimed me to death for all of the security add-ons such as site lock and others. Anyway, I hope this helps, and thank you for following me. I hope to bump into you again soon. Best of luck to you! Susan N.

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my websites. My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live a couple of months ago and the one on sleep apnea has been up for almost five months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.

Mickey, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Mickey.

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! :)
