Married. Father of a 5-year old princess and a dog. Got a degree in Information Systems but no experience with affiliate marketing. Although a big desire to make it on my own. Worked in sales, and customer service. Currently work as a Business Analyst for a local insurance company. An 8-5pm job that gets me frustrated as life in Honolulu is beautiful during the day (hikes and water activities including my passion; surfing) but because I'm stuck in an office I don't get to enjoy as much as I would like to. Working together with my wife who's a renowned yoga teacher here on the islands. Looking for a life-changing opportunity

Hi Marcus,

Thank you for following me and it is great to meet a fellow surfer.

When I read your profile and that you are living in Hawaii the first thing that came to my mind was Mr. Sunset, Jeff Hackman.

A very Interesting finish for the world title at Pipe. JJ is in fine form and has had a great consistent year with the only blemish a 13th place finish.

Well at least an OZZY win the women's. LOL

Enjoy Marcus and I wish you all the best.

By the way, I am goofy!!!

Cheers,

Brad

Hi Marcus, thanks for the follow, I returned it. I joined WA to to supplement my retirement when I do retire in about two years. My wife and I want to travel. This will give us the ability to do just that. If I had found this years ago, I'd probably be retired already. I really enjoy the community here at WA. They are a big help and inspiration. Good luck and I'll see you at the top.

HI Marcus

Thanks for the trick. You learn something new every day :-) I'm writing in the comments box right now, that popped up when I hovered over your profile pic.

Thanks for the follow. I appreciate it as you are a Top 200 member. Congratulations on such an accomplishment as it requires a lot of time and hard work.

I would appreciate any tidbits of advice that you may be willing to offer as this all seems a little overwhelming to me right now. It's information overload!

Thanks again and take care.

Oh, Marcus...I have never been to Hawaii, but just reading about your grueling 8-5 job made my heart ache...It seems as if you're making steady progress with the certification.

I would give you the challenge - if you haven't done so already - to complete the Certification before the end of this year. It really is doable!

Oh...and thanks for following me!

Hi Veronica. I have no doubt I'll finish both the certification, and the bootcamp before the end of the year. Have been investing 6+ hours on this every day, and enjoying a lot ;)

Welcome to WA - lots to learn here- stay focused - go through the Certification Courses first - you will get confused or frustrated from time to time - ask lots of questions - people are here to help you. 

HERE ARE 3 WA'ers Training Posts - they helped me - one is vocabulary you use here - one is a detailed use of your dashboard to find anything you will need - one is a plug-in to add to WordPress - that will help you build your sties. Hope they help - they did me This one I wrote - deals with how to "close" for the result you want. Stay with it - you don't need a wish of good luck - you need a plea to study the material and stay at it no matter what - it will change your life and hopefully the people you touch with your message.

Good day to you Marcus, my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. I'm following you back. There is much that you can learn about online marketing and how to use this information to derive income from this new frontier. I suggest if you are new to online marketing than first take the certification training [top left green box] Get Started Here and learn how to select a niche, build a niche website, and learn keyword research. When encountering difficulties ask the community. They are the secret sauce to WA.
I look forward to working with you and wish you much satisfaction and success in your online journey.

Hi Marcus!

Thank you so much for commenting on my recent blog post!

I was the one who commented on leaving Business Cards with just your Wealthy Affiliate Link or your website Link on a White glossy Business Card and leaving them not only at Events but anywhere really...coffee shops, churches, colleges and Universities, retirement communities, etc etc etc

Everyone wants to earn online and now is the time!

You yourself want to escape the 8-5 pm office and go surfing!

You can make that a reality here at WA!

Another suggestion for you...have your wife the Yoga Expert sign up under you from a different IP Address (not the same one from home - WA can only take 1 IP Address per Membership) and create a YOGA Membership Site for her!!!

ChrisScott ( The Teddy Bear) is creating Trainings on Membership Sites - these are extremely lucrative - especially in the Yoga Realm!

I always have tons of ideas to share with people!

If you ever get stuck or need a helping hand do not hesitate to contact me on my Profile Page or Private Message me 24/7/365!

I love helping people here at WA so much that I'm almost my own Live Chat!!!!

LOL

Hey Barb yes these are awesome ideas! I'm actually just starting the bootcamp as we type. Thank you very much for the tip. I'll definitely look for you. As I told Eric I got my full time job but I pretty much sit in front of the computer all day. So I have the chat window open most of the time (don't tell anybody :p). We'll chat more for sure. Thanks again

Hey Marcus!

"Mum's the word" on the Live Chat - I'm sure you're not the only one!!!!

You are most welcome on the ideas!!!

I got the surfing bug one year in Maui at age 45....Love it even though I'm crappy at it!

Looking forward to assisting you in any way that I can!!!

Hello Marcus,♫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 just wrote my 100th training for WA. I have categorized 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

Hey Marcus! How are you doing? I like checking in to see that you have your account all set up and yours is perfect. You're right on track.

I know you've probably been thinking about going premium, so I wanted to sweeten the deal a bit and in a helpful way I think you'll benefit from. There's a case study put together by one of the top trainers here at WA that I'd like to share with you on choosing a profitable niche and the critical first steps to building a successful niche site.

A lot of times choosing a profitable niche is something new members go back and forth with. Watching an expert in the field put this training into action was a huge a-ha moment for me. It opened my eyes and helped me understand exactly how to put this training to practical use for myself, so I wanted to share it with you.

We get these live video classes every week at WA, and premium members have full access to not only the weekly live classes but the entire archive of webinars as well. I think you'll agree that these live video classes along with all the training and mentorship you unlock once you upgrade are well worth the $19 you'll pay for your first month.

I know you've been thinking about it, so that's why I wanted to share these 4 live webinars with you to give you that catapult you're looking for :) They're really good.

Click on any of the webinar links below and you'll be able to upgrade and enjoy everything WA has to offer over the next month. You're getting huge bang for your buck at just $19. That's the best way to realize this is for you and it starts with this case study.

If you still want to take a couple days to think about it, that's not a problem. Just know that these are here for you when you go premium and they're very worth it: Take the plunge and enjoy this training. Take advantage of your huge discount! You earned it! I think you're really going to enjoy this.

Hey Eric, I'm premium now and very excited about it. As a business analyst with a degree in Information Systems, computers and the network are something I master so I see the value in this. And I'm married to a Yoga guru so while thinking about the niches I'd be working on it just clicked that I could just use her expertise and the need she has to promote her practice. Instead of focusing on my hobbies and passions. We think it's going to be a great partnership. What do you think?

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! :)

I'm starting and thinking about Social Media Marketing for my niche. I do have some experience with it but don't feel I got enough to write content. It's definitely something I'm passionate about, and a growing industry worth billions of dollars as you know. Other industries I thought about are my two passions; soccer and wine. Any inputs from the more experienced?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Your niche ideas are definitely viable directions for your niche. You need to choose one when starting out, what are you most passionate about?

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

Welcome to your Wealthy Affiliate free starter account Marcus!

The green tab on the left is where you start and where you can check out this awesome training. Kyle is the co-founder and a great teacher. He walks you step by step through everything with easy to follow video tutorials and I know you'll enjoy it.

In a couple days or so I'll check back in, so in the meantime start this training and do yourself a huge favor and push yourself to upgrade to premium to get that full first month for $19 that you qualify for. When someone offers 61% off you take it! lol. I did it on day 2 personally, and I never looked back, so keep that and the training at the forefront.

Now that you're here, check out my profile and leave me a message telling me what brought you here. https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/ericcantu

What are your goals? What are your passions? I love hearing new members share their unique paths to WA. Again, congrats! You're in the right place! Leave me a message on my profile. I'm always available!
