About Mswanson250
Joined August 2019
Hello. My name is Matthew, but I usually go by Matt. I started my marketing journey in high school when I wanted to work in the stock market. However, I soon learned that that required lots of nitty gritty math calculations and number punching, which I found to be exceedingly boring. So, I switched to the creative side of marketing and have never looked back. I got my bachelor's in marketing, and soon got a job in digital marketing. So far, it's been going well, but it doesn't pay especially good. That is why I am here. To combine my education, software skills and experience, and my love for creativity to start my own affiliate marketing business. My goals are to initially use this as a way to cover my living expenses and knock out my school debt. After that, I hope to use this to supplement my 9-5 job as additional income and use it as I please, such as investing in real estate, or doing numerous weekend travels all over the country.

Hi Mswanson250, Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. Great choice you made there. Your goals are reasonable and very much achievable and considering the time you intend to put in, you can achieve more than that. Just keep working hard, have patience and follow through the training completing the tasks and you will get there sooner.

To your success!

Your goals are totally realistic and when you achieve the first one, it will be just a matter of scaling to reach the second one. The Internet works wonderful when you have your formula for success down which you are going to be getting from the training here at WA.

Once you get this formula down the sky is truly the limit Matthew! I look forward to working with you and seeing you make your goals a reality. :)

That's definitely something that you can get by dedicating time and being consistent in your efforts Matt. An hour or two is a great way to start so you don't get overwhelmed, and I'm sure that over time, as you start seeing results, you'll want to ramp up your efforts to see faster results!

Hey Matt, I just wanted to check in and see if you had a chance to start exploring Wealthy Affiliate. If you haven't started the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course - that's the best place to start.

It'll take you through the whole process of how to start your website and how the making money stuff works.

Click "Training", then "Online Entrepreneur Certification"

PS. One thing people get stuck on a lot is picking a topic or "niche" for their website. If you are having trouble thinking of something to make your website about let me know and we can figure it out together.

Kyle has an eye-opening post about niche selection here: I love this post because it shows you can start with one idea, then tweak that idea over time. Your first website does NOT have to be perfect!

PPS. Just about every new member wants to see some success stories! There are too many to list, but here are a few of my favorites:

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! :)
Hi Nathaniell! Thanks for reaching out. The niche I am looking at getting into is sweaters for men. My website is called Sweater Paradise. What do you think?
nathaniell Premium
Sounds very cool! Men's fashion is definitely a cool industry to get into, since most guys need help dressing smart.

Can't wait to see what you can do with this!
Thanks Nathaniell! I appreciate your response.

Nathaniell here - you probably remember me from my site One More Cup of Coffee. I'm glad to see you've signed up and are ready to get started building your online business.

Right now, there are just two super important things you need to know.

1) If you ask questions and interact with the community you are far more likely to see results with your business. The support here at WA is the best in the industry...please take advantage of it.

2) You can talk to me about anything! I've been a member for 9 years now, so I'll be able to personally answer any of your questions about WA or starting an online business. Leave a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/nathaniell or respond directly to this message!

There are a ton of other features worth exploring, but they are explained in the main training. Time to get started on the first lesson!

PS. Did you know that you'll already have your website built by lesson 4? Crazy, I know!

PPS. See who has already made money by following WA's training: ★ ★ ★ Access Your Bonuses! ★ ★ ★
