About RobMichelle
Joined June 2015
Twenty years ago when computers used DOS and Windows 3.0, we met online.
I lived in Australia and Michelle lived in the USA. At that time this was looked at as weird, now it is quite normal. Back then, 20 years ago, Online Marketing was unknown, but today it has become a major industry.
I've been a teacher, worked with Investment Real Estate, MLM and as a Title Abstractor with the Oil & Gas Industry, we even had our own shop front stores.

We have embarked on this online journey together as a way to increase our family income. We have always worked together since we met and all of our ventures have been reasonably successful. They just did not give us the lifestyle or the income we were expecting.

Our goal is to be happy, healthy, wealthy and wise. May sound like a cliche, but these are the things we really wanted for our lives. To get these things we came to the conclusion, we needed to work from home or where-ever we happened to be. Travel being one of our goals.

Getting involved in the business of Making Money Online was initially very confusing. There are many Online Marketing “Guru’s” offering all sorts of programs and platforms, some costing many thousands of dollars. We spent countless months trying to do our homework and figure it all out. We looked at many ideas, even invested in a couple, only to find out for us, there was some unseen catch. They just did not suit our needs.

We realized we were newbies and had no experience in making money online, so we made a decision to find something where we didn’t have to invest any money to try it out. We wanted something where we could learn as we go to make sure it was going to work for us. Not a limited 30 day “free” trial, we wanted something we could work at our own pace however long it took.

We chose Wealthy Affiliates as we were able to start at no cost, gain a lot of knowledge, and learn marketing online for free. We wanted to find out what it would take in terms of time and effort. Even at no cost, Wealthy Affiliates (WA) has provided a huge knowledge base for us, and the individual support has been truly exceptional.

Regardless of the product, a specific niche or whatever our passion, joining WA has enabled us to easily create websites, learn all the new terms and find the traffic we needed to develop a business and to become Happy, Healthy, Wealthy and Wise. Our original Goal.

We believe shopping online is becoming a major shift in peoples buying habits. We no longer just look at what the brick and mortar shops are providing we now automatically look at what we can get online. Often it is cheaper and is delivered to our front door free of charge.

Our goals and aspirations in life, involve all aspects of being Happy, Healthy, Wealthy and Wise. It requires money to support it. Our goals whether they are large or small, we are finding WA gives us the opportunity to achieve them.

For us initially, our goal was Wealthy, but in recent years, it is the medical issues that have become dominant.
Being our own boss has allowed us to be in charge of our time, gives us control and allows things like medical issues to not have such a major impact on our life. For some of you these challenges have not raised their ugly heads. But be prepared.
To give you some ideas of our health issues, here's a partial list; being diagnosed with Celiac disease, Heart Valve replacement, Aorta Replacement, Macular Degeneration, Cancer, 2 strokes, Carotid Artery surgery (95%blocked). Maybe someday I'll do a post on how we handled these

We can’t wait to get to know you and work with you as we travel this journey together.
Happy to answer any questions you may have.

Cheers
Rob & Michelle

Hello Rob and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined and with your other marketing experience you may well have come to the conclusion that internet marketing is a steep learning curve.

You must keep referring to the training (it does get updated from time to time).

If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 460+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me a message anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.
Robert

Start out with "Getting Started." Follow that training! I can not stress this enough... Do not skip around. Do them in the order that they are. And go at your pace. It is not a race.

Hi again Rob! Just checking in to see how you are getting along with the training. Don't worry about doing too much or too little - everyone works at their own pace.

Oh, and don't forget that there's another live webinar coming up this week for premium members! Jay's an awesome host, so it's worth attending at least once, just to see what they're all about.

What's up Rob, just wanted to see how you were doing and if you need any help. Let me know!

Hey there, I just wanted to check in and see if you had any questions about what you've seen at WA so far. A lot of people get information overload in the first couple days.

The one piece of advice that helped me when I got started was that there is a huge difference in success rates between those that interact with the community and those that don't. Part of learning all this new stuff is going to require that you ask questions when you don't understand.

So, my suggestion is this.

1) Put up a profile pic

2) Write a short introduction about yourself

3) Drop in on my profile to say hello

Doing these things will help you meet people in the community and see what WA is all about. You can start learning how to build a profitable business on the internet by clicking the green "Get Started Here" button on your left. I hope you enjoy your time in Wealthy Affiliate!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Rob!

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 things you need to know.

1) Those who ask questions interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their goals. The support here at WA is the best in the internet marketing industry...please take advantage of it.

2) You can get started learning how to make money by doing your Level 1 Certification Course. Click on the green "Get Started Here" button or just click this link .

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/nathaniell or by responding directly to this message.

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 started on the first lesson.

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


★ ★ ★ 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. Twenty bucks for you first month of WA is an absolute steal.

☆ ☆ Bonus #1: Live Case Study 2 Part Webinar Series

Get access to a 2-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 2+ 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.


☆ ☆ Bonus #2: Top 5 Newbie Mistakes And How To Fix Them

This includes some simple design tips, and answers to the most frequently asked questions by new WA members. This resource will help you bypass these common errors and get your affiliate website ready for making money.
