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 .
Looking forward to every minute I have to spend on my endeavor ! Onward and upward !!!!

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,
Wayne

Thank you for the follow Mike appreciated.

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.

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!

Hello Mike,
Love all the positive things you had to say in your about me. I too was not sure when I joined WA because I ran into so many companies that were not legit. WA is the real deal. I am new here as well, but if there is anything I can help you with, let me know. Thanks for following me and I will follow you as well. I wish you all the best.

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.
Have a great day.

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! :)

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
