About MikeAkers
Joined April 2017
I'm a husband and stepfather to one son. We live in Northeast Arkansas. I am a Christian and life-long bible student. I'm an outreach minister to a group of men primarily from the trucking industry. I too have a background in the industry and have for over 35 years.

My wife and I are currently doing a little internet marketing of two home based business and are looking to go full time and solely work from home. We are excited and look forward to our future in affiliate marketing.

I love to cook all sorts of things and have a passion for cooking in cast iron. I enjoy cooking on cast iron both indoors and outdoors as well. It certainly is a great way, and even a healthy way of cooking. My niche marketing website can be seen at --->https://Cast-Iron-Cook.com/

Outreach ministry is just as it sounds...Out-reach and reach-out! For several years I was writing little short story devotions and sharing them primarily on Facebook.

Many of my friends kept telling me to write a book an include them all. My wife said I should write a blog. So, I set up a blog but never really got started like I should have.

Along came WA and the website creation was on. So, now we will be incorporating all those short story devotions into one place. Our newest baby is DavidAndTheGiant.com. I hope you enjoy and check back often as we will be building this out gradually.

Hello Teammate

Suppose you could join an opportunity today and earn $50 for F.ree and start building a team for f.ree by simply sharing the same offer, wouldn't that be great? Well this is what I am offering you today!

A new global crypto-currency bank is pre-launching July 17th.. Along with their new digital crypto-currency.

To jump-start the business (i.e., establish a registered customer base.. and drive up the value of the new coin, they are giving away a real $50 (USD) of their new digital coin value to everyone who registers for f.ree until the September 19th official launch date.

Example: If the new coin comes out at a value of 10 cents.. each registered person will receive 500 coins of the newly issued of crypto-currency. That is yours to keep, no strings attached.. if successful, the new coin will grow in value in the weeks, months and years ahead.

Note: Over 45,000 people have joined worldwide in the past 4 days.. over 500 people an hour are registering at last count..

It costs NOTHING now or later to register. There is no obligation to do anything... but TIMING MATTERS!, because there is a 2x20 matrix which registered members fall into worldwide.. and this can generate a lot of 1ncome once operations begin.. so here's the plan:

1) ASAP.. Please take a minute to register f.ree to get your own website and your personal customer/member referral link (Please check that my name ( Ernest Nunnally ) appears top left on the page).

Go to: http://ernnun.ccbmlm.com

2) To maximize your earnings potential in the 2x20 matrix, share the $50 f.ree coin give-away offer with a minimum of 20 people. You'll receive an additional $10 of the new coin for each person who registers using your link.

Example: 20 people register using your (personal) referral website link,... they'll each receive $50 in new coin.. and you'll receive $200 more coin value ($10 for each referred registration).

Please don't wait ... People are flooding in.. lock in the highest 2x20 matrix position by getting in Now!

I will have more details about the bank and operations soon... please browse the website as well..

To YOUR Success,
Ernest Nunnally

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

Now you have a website you might want to think about putting the link 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.

And as a fellow foodie I would have left a comment. So I am going to do a copy and paste onto the server and see if I can find you.

You should also do some blogs here on your profile page. These go into Google too so add to your online profile.

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

ps I couldn't open your site on Firefox but did on Edge. It is also on Chrome but not in the first few pages. I found it using an exact search. Also I think I called you Tim. I was just talking to a Tim and obviously had him on the brain!

I would appreciate a comment on any one of my posts also. My site is Fantasy-sci-fi-vision.com

Hi Mike,
Nice to meet you and thanks for the follow.
What a coincidence, I went to an opal mining town about 2 weeks ago - Lightning Ridge in outback Australia. A remote area wher you would think things would be a lot more expensive than the cities - right? Trucking the goods there.
I bought two large deep cast iron fry pans that you can join together to cook a roast in for only $29.95 Australian dollars.
They are $80 in the cities.
I am lucky also. They are that heavy my wife can't pick even one of them up, thus preserving my scalp.
Cheers mate and wish you all the best.

Welcome Mike. Thanks for the follow and I'm following you,also. Best to you in WA and beyond.
I love cooking in cast iron, and it is healthier then any other type of pans out there, especially the coated pans. I'm working on a post that describes all the chemicals that we absorb through what we use to cook with. It is shocking the toxins that are in these pans, which we release into our foods every time we use them.
Stay healthy and happy.

MikeAkers Premium
Thank you Judy. Yes it's unbelievable the amount of toxins we ingest through the utensils most use.

Good luck on your post and have a wonderful day!

Mike, 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.

Hello Mike, and welcome, I promise you are in the right place. Follow all the training even if you think you know some of what you are learning. I was the pastor of a small church here in Memphis, TN for ten years and I loved it. Now I am a member of an awesome church. I believe God wants the best for His children and if we keep Him as our most prized Father and Friend nothing can come against us. You already have passions and niches just sitting there waiting for you to expand on them, to quote and old song "Don't Stop Till You Get Enough". Keep us informed of you progress and success's and may God richly bless you.

Hello Mike,♫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

This is the keyword research tool I have used exclusively after I became a Premium member 3+ years ago and it has helped me many times to find awesome keywords that have led to Google page 1 rankings.

I created very popular WA Training Tutorials, Part 1 and Part 2, on how to use the WA Keyword Tool for keyword research. If you have not seen it and would like to learn how simple it is to use and a little about keywords, click the below link.

Welcome Mike, to Wealthy Affiliates and thanks for accepting my invitation to check it out.

There's a lot to learn here, the best place to start would be the level 1 certification course. So start with the first lesson by clicking on the link below. Be sure to create a profile and add a picture, that way you'll get lots of help from all the peeps in WA. You'll find out how to do this in the getting started link above.

Sadly some people don't even get this far, for some unknown reason.

If you can do this, (i.e.) follow simple instructions, (implementing as you go), soon you will be on your way to making your first sale.

And don't forget that you can also access me for 1-on-1 support by leaving a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/affilicoach or by private message if you are a premium member.

There are a ton of other features you have access to right now, but they are explained in your main training linked above. Your #1 job right now is to get to lesson 1!

★ ★ ★ Access Your Bonuses! ★ ★ ★

I also wanted to let you know that if you join the premium membership in this 7 day window you'll get a TON of awesome stuff from me.

First off, you'll get a 59% discount ($19.95 for 1 month) on your membership.

☆ ☆ Bonus #1: Live Case Study 5 Part Webinar Series

Get access to a 4-Part-Series Live Case Study webinar. It's video series where a professional internet marketer creates a complete 'niche website'. All steps are included and thoroughly explained, including research, rank, content creation and monetization. Total length of the videos is 4+ hours

This will give you a broad overview of the type of site you will create on Wealthy Affiliate. I think it's always a good idea to know the direction you are headed before you start your journey.

Please feel free to ask questions in the community through live chat or the Getting started classroom above. Or as I mentioned before, hit me up anytime you want in WA.

Anyway, I know you'd be eager to have a browse around so I'll let you get your feet wet.

Best of luck, and don't forget you can always ask me for help!


Best,
Frank
