About MikeC69
Joined February 2018
Business owner in the technical services industry . (CNC)
And growing online entrepreneur .
Married with 2 children (18-24)
My main Hobbies are hunting and carp fishing .

Brand new to Affiliate marketing , web design , and working on my first startup !
Frustrated ! A friend suggested this community as a learning tool and support for my ground zero start up with the least amount of experience imaginable .
I've been reading , studying etc and have learned a lot so far .....in theory .

I have used the "learning time " thus far as a time to make the decision that I want to learn ! Learn the correct way ! And be in it for the long haul !
Thanks in advance for your patience with this green horn ! LOL

With just a few weeks into the experience and learning quite a bit in a short time, I now feel that the training, tools and the community here at Wealthy Affiliate are for real !

I must admit that upon arrival and signing up for the free membership I was very cynical of what I was hearing . Not anymore . I have already learned more in a couple of weeks than I ever could have by my self in months !

I'm a 48 year old who has set his goal fairly high . But anything worth while is worth working for . And that's what I plan to do .
I look forward to updating this bio in another couple of months with even more understanding and success ! I'd like to say thanks to Kyle and Carson and all the helpful folks here at W.A. !

*March 8 2018 update.
More pleased every day ! Been writing Content and following the course. In spare time doing research . I'm now 100% convinced that W.A. is almost too good to be true, but it is ! As a complete newbie to online anything I can honestly say that it would have likely taken me a year to make the progress I've made at W.A. in just a few weeks ! The training and support is great and that is something that was non-existent in the other program I tried .

July Update! I'm no longer a 48 year old who has set his goals high ! I'm a 49 year old who is setting his goals higher!

*August 3 2018 Update :
3 websites was a mistake ! 2 may be a mistake !
I'm working hard on one site now and posting to one of the others once a week. The third site is dormant.
I'm really seeing improvement now!
My main site just hit 6 months old and is almost at 1000 visitors per month!
Still a long way to go!
Making enough money to cover my W.A., Aweber, and Clickfuinnels.
Looking forward to every minute I have to spend on my endeavor ! Onward and upward !!!!

I wish everyone at Wealthy Affiliate nothing but the best of the best!
If I can help anyone , just let me know! I would be honored !

Best of success !

Hi Mike, thanks for the follow. I think you're right about WA. I've tried other programs and they just tell you what you need to do and turn you loose. A person can feel very isolated trying to do this with no feedback. WA and the group provides the support that's needed - plus great training to boot.

Thank you !
I think you are absolutely right!
W.A. is set up for success !
Sometimes we have to pull ourselves up and work on it when we aren't motivated or discouraged , but just remember that a diamond doesn't transform from coal overnight!

Hi Mike:
Taking you up on your offer to help.
Got a couple of questions for you.

I am completing Level 1, Lesson 8 and was wondering;

Q: Will I be able to create/sell websites for local businesses in my area using the WA plateform - WebPress ?
Q: How much extra will this cost me ? e.g domain costs, etc.

I want to build up my marketing skills by building websites for local businesses. Gain valuable experience and a small amount of cash. Word of mouth may do my new business good.
Of course I have to first learn all the skills from my training.

What do you think ?

MikeC69 Premium
Hi ! I'm sorry it took a while to get back! Been a little busy!
Yes you can build websites and sell then to your clients through Wordpress. There are several people on here who do that.
I just saw where one guy built a website in the green , sustainability niche and sold it for $60,000.
It was making $2200 per month on average when he sold it.

The domains are $13 if I remember correctly. That is the only expense beyond $49 premium membership

I hope this helps ....let me know.

Best of success to you!

That's great Mike thank you !
Is there a limit to how many I can build at WA ?
I'm thinking of small town businesses, not much traffic to them.
Maybe start with 2 or 3 and sell them to the business with the domain.

Thanks for the great help Mike, just what I wanted to know !

Hi !
I love carp fishing!
Here i the Southern US paylake tournament fishing is big!
I also love the European style fishing as well where you are just fishing for the big boys! I'm after my next PB (personal best ) of 33 pounds ! They fight hard like a striper!
I don't catch em to eat. I'm a strict catch and release fisherman.

Have a great day, and best of success to yoi!

Hi Mike,

"But anything worth while is worth working for" well said! I haven't experienced creating a website and seeing it's lack of progression, but I'm sure I will experience this too. Your "never give up attitude" is the key to getting over those humps. Thank you for sharing your progress with us all. It's nice to see real people sharing real experiences.

Keep on!

Hi Mike, I just left you a comment on PG2.0 (actually I think I made a typo and put 20). You can edit my comment for this.

I noticed a few times you used 'than well'. Perhaps 'as well' might be more appropriate. And you have some typos too. For instance you have 'vale' where I believe you meant 'value'. (A vale is a valley.)

A great review. Look forward to others.

Hello Mike

Welcome to the WA Community and thanks for the follow will do the same back.

You have all you need from the sounds of it to zero in on your first niche, just follow up on your passion, pick one facet of it, and run with it.

Try as you might you are going to bank your head against a wall, for we are not used to these new tools and processes, but take a break walk away and come back renewed and excited to start again.

Just do not walk away period....LOL

Will look forward to your success

Cheers

Great post. I know that Wealthy Affiliate is the real deal. They have a very powerful platform that involves helping people. I am as green as anyone could come--- two days young. :) Suddenly, I started to grow a strong sense of direction and I upgraded to PREMIUM. I am still studying at level 1. But, I am confident that completing each task helps to build a solid online foundation. And so, SUCCESS is the horizon. Thank you my friend for being part of WA and I look forward to working with you.

Great Bio Mike...

I am very much in the same boat as you and fully determined to give this everything in my power to make it a success.
I was a little slow at the start, not quite sure why, but definetly wasn't putting in the time and applying myself properly.

For one reason or the other things have changed recently, and I am now fully focussed and treating it as a job now. Still a long way to go, but with the support of everybody here at WA I am in for the long haul.

If I can help you in anyway, please just let me know..

In my own opinion, for a newbie, you are definitely in the right place!! I have been with WA now since 2014 and I love it!!

I just finished talking about one of my biggest challenges and that would be focus, so my advice is just that... do everything you can to stay focused and on task. If you don't, that is when this whole thing can get overwhelming.

Thanks for the follow Mike! I will be following you back.

Never tried fishing for carp, but they do look mighty fun to fish.

Is it true that the lip is fleshy so certain hooks won't set properly?


There's a nice river by my wifes old Job that has HUGE carp I just could never get a bite. After numerous attempts I figured i'd stick to bass


I'm glad you found WA and it's good to hear your enthusiasm Keep flying high....

MikeC69 Premium
Carp fishig is a blast! The corners of the mouth are pretty soft but the lips are tougher than leather! It can be a problem getting hooks out without hurting the fish really bad, so mostly use barbless hooks! A big 25# carp will fight like a 40 pound striper!
Hope you have nothing but the bet of success my friend !

Hi MikeC69, like you I was sceptical at first, I've looked at far too many many supposed business opportunities over the years and finding something that actually delivers on its promise is difficult.

Building any business takes time, training or a learning curve and a good support network. I believe you will find all of those on this platform, and it looks like you've already realized that. Ultimately our own success will be controlled by our desire to succeed.

Good luck on your venture

Hey Mike,

Hello Mike,
I really enjoyed reading your bio. I am sure WA is a good move for you and for me. I am making progress, but it is slower than I had hoped. That's because I have so much to learn. I do not have much experience on the internet, so I have a lot of trial and error in this endeavor.
I am glad you are following me. I appreciate the support.

Welcome aboard Dottie!
Experience doesn't matter at all!
When I started 3 months ago my only experience was Facebook and YouTube outside of E mail.
The training here covers everything step by step.
Just stick with the training and when you get stuck ask for help!
Never give up!
That is the only reason people fail at Affiliate marketing. They get discouraged when it takes a while to start making money. But this is set up for the long haul, not quick start and fizzle out after a couple of months !

Best of success to you!

Ok. Number one...
One day I might come fishing with you, hunting does not ring my bell.
Trust me. Looking at some photos on my first website with WA you will have a clear idea about why I don't like the noise of shooting guns.
So far I spent the whole day yesterday putting it together and it is today when I am resuming the study side of business.
Whenever you can, have a look at this webbie:
www.goodsami.com
There is a little bit there about what is going on in this crazy world.
Then you will feel as if you are living in heaven, regardless of the country you live in.
Have a great day.

Add to that, this training and business is likely one of the most exciting and fun things I have ever done, and I love doing it!
The successes I have had are from Google adsense, a couple of affiliate sales from posting my reviews and blog posts on my pages on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram,Google plus and pintrest.
I have 2 referrals that went premium on W.A.(One is my daughter, which I'm proud of) She is 19 and has the worst level of asthma. We are about to start another website together for kids with asthma .
Sorry for being so long! Consider yourself lucky, that we aren't speaking face to face! LOL My grandfather used to tell me that I could talk the horns off a billy goat!

Thanks Teresa !
If I may, I would suggest that you work on the training as you build out your site. I did what you did for the first month on my first site, and then I learned everything I was doing wrong and how to do it right in the training. I went back and corrected a good bit of stuff that actually cost me time on my site when all was said and done.
The Wealthy Affiliate ranking is because of what I'm doing right now and the blog.
I don't believe that copy/paste the same "thanks, if you need help" in comments back to people is right. I want to do this long term, and make friends and relationships with the people here!
People deserve honesty, and that's how you get to know people . It also helps me , not just the people I have discussions with.
Sorry! Long again!

Nice to meet you sir!
My grandfather grew cotton and I got a good taste of that when I was young !
If I may make a suggestion, it would be to take one of your sites and Crush it! Build it out and concentrate on it for a while. Don't forget the others, they are important as well because you created them! That alone makes them important!
But pick the one site and work hard on it!
I don't know how far you've gotten in the training, but I strongly suggest that you do the training and build that site with the training.
Kyle will instruct a lot along the way. As you go through each training module, make the change he teaches on that site . Then when you complete the training, you will have your site rocking and getting the other 3 rolling will be much easier!
I wish nothing but the greatest of success to you sir!

Have a blessed day!

Thanks Mike for the follow You are 100% correct when you say the training @ WA "I'm now 100% convinced that W.A. is almost too good to be true, but it is !"
I am also a newbie, having overcome my procrastination - now into the training - the road ahead is clear

It's a pleasure to meet you Denis!
If I can make one suggestion to help everyone who is a newbie, it would be to follow the training and not get ahead of it with your site. You will learn so much easier that way !
I wish nothing but the greatest success to you sir!
Have a great and blessed day!

Great bio, tells a lot about the person you are. Honored you chose to follow me and proud to follow you.
Best of luck, if I can assist I'll be around here somewhere.

Oh yeah. CNC. I pretty much self taught myself on a Mazak. Wish I had the support on that like we do here.

MIKE you're a natural. Some people write almost nothing!
You have good command of the English language, and you type well enough too.
WA is the WAy to go!
I paid for the whole year in one payment which you can switch to at any time. 59 X12 =708, but 29 X 12=348. 708 - 348 = 360. So if you actually saved the difference until it was due again, it would actually pay for another year.
MIKEc69, i AM FOLLOWING YOU. ;>)!!
Suzay post script: Do you know Loes? She made 2 great videos, and also added typed out hearing impaired script. She is a fabuLoes Lady, and wants to share them to help us promote WA.

MikeC69 Premium
Thank you very much for the kind words Suzay!
I have liked to write my whole life. No formal training of course.
I wrote short stories as a kid and was inspired to write about adventures after reading Tom Sawyer!
I think I'm doing pretty well, but have a lot of room to improve !

I have seen a few things Loes has done. I have not seen her videos yet, but will check them out! I have yet to get into much besides completing the "Getting Started" training and half of Affiliate boot camp.
I will be checking out more and more of the wonderful resources at W.A.
I hope you have a wonderful evening and wish you the best of success !

Thank you for following me, Mike,

I'm going to follow you back, this way we are in each other's network and can help each other reach that goal. I'm betting we can learn a lot together using the vast community here at Wealthy Affiliate. I'm looking forward to networking with you.

I got a slow start when I first started here with WA; By that I mean, sifting through all of the resources and trying to get myself focus on precisely what I wanted to do in my business.

But, once I acquired some knowledge and received help from some of the experts here at Wealthy Affiliate, I got used to working on developing my business every day. I was able to pick up a right amount of experience in Internet marketing from Wealthy Affiliate.

I'm now practicing developing the new skills that were hidden deep within me, I never knew were there. I'm sure you will also.

Mike, so far I've learned several web design and app development languages. I'm fluent in HTML, CSS, Javascript, and Python. When it comes to PHP and C++, I'm just scratching the surface.

If you need advice on your website development, my niche is just starting to show signs of life. I offer sound and professional web development consultant to help make the road to reaching your dreams much smoother.

I'm working on my proof of concept for my business and invite all Wealthy Affiliate members to visit my website to leave their opinion about my skills and test my knowledge. I love comments and lots of feedback.

I know you're as busy as I am. Thank you for following me and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. If you have any questions, I'm here to help you in any way I can. Including trading off each other services.

May God bless you, Mike, and be the light for your journey.

Thanks a lot leNard!
It's great to know someone who is fluent in HTML because I don't. And honestly I have no clue what CSS stands for I have heard of Javascript but that's it and the only python I am familiar with is the Burmese version I saw at the zoo!
I think my niche personality is very different from yours as I am really just a people person .
I have a word document with the names of several people from Wealthy Affiliate on it, that I figured I might resource help from at some point.
Your name was just added to the top.
I will be getting back to you at some point!
Best of success !
Mike

Thanks for the follow Mike. I think WA is the real deal. God knows I spent plenty of money on scams in the past and didn't learn 1% of what I have learned here.

You really confess to being a carp fisherman, common man, have some pride, lol.

I remember as a kid in Michigan, I hooked up with a carp that darn near destroyed my tackle. I gained a healthy respect for them as a game fish.

Hi Mike,

Absolutely not a prank scam, lol. Wealthy Affiliate is as real as real could be. And I’m grateful as well for the experience and the chance to do something that betters me.

Thanks for the follow and following you back. Wow, I’m typing on an iPad and I can pretty well type without looking for the letters. I took typing in highschool and loved it. Obviously, it paid off. My typing teacher would be thrilled, lol.

Anyways, good luck with your success here at Wealthy Affiliate and keep learning. Thanks for the follow and I’m following you back.

I wish nothing but the greatest of success to you as well my friend! And I truly mean that! W.A. has provided me with both an outlet for my love of writing content in short stories.(Long Story) and the ability to create an online business presence with multiple revenue streams !
True, it is a paid membership. But you receive so much more than the small cost of a monthly premium membership !
I wish more people would realize how much a training and community platform like this can change your life!
I had a pretty good income before coming to W.A. and a few people I have talked to attribute my early and growing success to that. But honestly the only money I have spent is the monthly premium membership and not one cent more!
I have been here only 3 months, and I already generate more than enough revenue to cover the membership !
Sorry for being so long winded! I'm a little passionate about my new found direction!
Bets wishes

Good evening, Mike and thanks for the follow. It's a pleasure to follow you back. I also want to extend a BIG WELCOME to WA and I'm glad you have seen that WA is all it's cracked up to be.

I totally understand where you are coming from as a newbie with no experience, a lot of us have been there and a lot of us still feel that there is a lot to learn.

That said, WE all can do this if we stick to the plan and the training and don't quit. As Kyle said the other day, and I paraphrase, "We are all unique individuals with the amazing potential to do amazing things beyond our comprehension". All we have to do is focus on the prize.

We can do this.

I look forward to connecting from time to time.

All the best,

As you stated many of us would have felt the same at the start with some scepticism of WA and if this is just another scam but as you have seen and learnt from the great training WA has provided that this is the real deal and the place to be.

Wishing you great success going forward you have already realised the best way is to learn first then apply what you have learnt rather than rushing into everything.

Keep believing in yourself and continue to go forward.

It's amazing how much I have learned in 2 weeks ! Unbelievable ! I still have a long way to go but learning ever day ! The community here is great and Carson and Kyle are on top of it . I'll admit that I thought this was probably just another "Get rich quick , send me $49 to learn how " site. Holy cow was I wrong ! I figured I would sign up for the free trial membership and see what it was about, but within a couple of days I was hooked ! I
At first I couldn't get past the thinking that Wealthy Affiliate would be one big competition . But it's the exact opposite ! It's based on common sense . That same common sense that isn't very common anymore !
Carson and Kyle and the rest of the community are actually encouraged to help because the better the results of it's members the better Wealthy affiliate and it's members do!
After researching and researching I feel that I have really found something that is tangible and workable . I've been a wrench spinner for 32 years, and at 48 I'm starting to think about the next phase of life . I don't want it to be catching a plane or driving 1000 miles a week to work on a piece of machinery and doing so to continue to chase an income and make a living . I want to do several different things and none of which consume my life !
More time for family and what I want to do for a change !
It's not an over night transformation and I'm glad of that ! I want to learn it and the training and content here has made that possible .
I came in with minimal computer experience and my internet experience was "Click the rainbow circle for internet , red and white arrow for you tube , and the blue square with the F for Facebook,
I hope everyone who signs up and creates a profile sticks with it and changes their lives ! .
Who knows maybe we can get together in Vegas and talk about the last year .
Later folks !

Hello Mike and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you've been here you might have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
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.

Thank you Mike for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. If you need any help remember to post your question in the comments section or on live chat, and someone will be able to help you.

I created an informative training tutorial for all New Members that clearly explain the differences between the Certification Course and Affiliate Bootcamp.

I highly recommend that you do not start your WA training doing the Bootcamp. The Certification Course is the BEST option and I explain why in the following tutorial. If you have a few minutes free, give it a read and ask me any questions you may have within the comments section, and I will be happy to give you an answer.

Hey there Mike and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! I am Simon, an affiliate of WA and I am here to help you along the way.

A little about me - I run a successful Internet marketing agency from my home base in Mexico and my clients are mostly in the UK. I have a staff of 7 to support our clients and we’ve been in business for over 6 years.

I use Wealthy Affiliate to spread some of my knowledge and help people like yourself get off the ground. If you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, do let me know, I’ve covered almost every part of Internet marketing and selling online.

In my view Wealthy Affiliate is not only a great place to start learning in how to create an online income, but the only resource you will need. However be warned – there’s a lot of information on this site. Take a deep breath Mike, this is where it gets interesting!

As a new member here, you should check out the Online Entrepreneur Certification getting started course (Level 1). This is a task based course that will get you taking action on daily tasks that will lead to you building web assets. Here is the link that you will see within your main menu labelled "Get Started Here". Here is your link to set up your 2 free Wordpress sites with full hosting -

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites


HOW TO CLAIM YOUR BONUS
-----------------------------------------------

If you join Premium within the first 7 days, here are some bonuses that I am going to be giving you:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)

(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there.

(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus"

But only if you join in your first 7 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways Mike, thought I would just introduce myself and if you have any questions going forward, let me know. :) Wonderful to have you as part of the community here at WA!

Your friend,

Simon
