About RudyStebih
Joined June 2014

For the past 10 years, I have been installing Smart Home Technology here in Vancouver, B.C., Canada and surrounding areas. With a couple of my corporate clients, I also traveled to locations 100's of miles away to complete jobs. The majority of my work as a System Integrator has been installing Home Automation, Home Entertainment and Home Comfort systems.

But as time goes by, I find myself wanting to crawl through crawl spaces less and less. I made a decision recently to stop installing Smart Home Technology in 2015 and am currently restructuring the company to concentrate solely on Smart Home Tech Support. Basically service, repair, programming & training. It turns out that for the past year, I have been doing more work taking over installs either due to being bad installs to begin with, the originally company going out of business due to cash flow problems or installers retiring and just disappearing.

So starting in 2015, I no longer pull cables through homes thus leaving me with more time to pursue my affiliate marking activities. And boy is this going to be fun. I've spent the last year learning and purchasing many thousands of dollars' worth of marketing programs & training (many crap, some excellent) to fully understand this affiliate and internet marketing opportunity. And now the light has turned on and know the exact course of action to take to make my first $1000.

So if you want to follow along, be sure to follow me as I will be blogging in real time, case study on how I made my first $1000. And at the same time creating a roadmap of the steps I took to achieve those goals. So I hope to hear from you soon....


* Aside from tech support, my other job is a live sound engineer.
* I used to work on cruise ships and head sound engineer for the whole ship.
* The amount of random computer knowledge I have would scare you.
* To this day, I still buy music on CDs and have never bought an mp3 or iTunes song.
* I enjoy taking photos, watching movies, listening to music.
* I have been told that I have a bad habit of drinking too much Coca-Cola.
* My love for steak will never allow me to become a vegetarian.
* I've recently just hired a nutritionist. What a difference!!

I am also the Founder / Creative Director & Head Geek at HelpDeskTV, a digital media/podcasting company founded in 2009. Here we create video tutorials on Microsoft & Windows software that are 1 - 3 minutes in length. Short and sweet with a single topic, to the point, high quality content, easy to learn from.

I am currently on a head strong mission to reach the goal of making $80K per month. That's 10 niche websites at $1000/mo. Yeah I know, it doesn't add up. I'm accounting for the slower months. So I am always on the lookout for information & resources to help me reach this goal. Maybe Wealthy Affiliate may be just the one!!!

One last thing, if anyone needs help with Wordpress, you can reach me at my Skype ID below.

Links to my affiliate website roadmap and income/expense spreadsheet as I make my way towards my initial goal of $1000/month are now listed below. Enjoy!

Hi Rudy,

Wondering if you can guide me in changing my website address/name. I bought the 13.99 domain here on WA, but I chose the wrong website name for my address. Good luck in your future endeavers.

Hi Rudy. I'm very interested to hear your take on Rapid Mailer, would you care to share?
RudyStebih Premium
Rapid Mailer is a good product but very under developed. I was having huge conflicts with other plugins as well as having the activation issues you are having. I have since stopped using ALL the other products from the same developer for the same reasons. I now use the free version of Mailchimp amongst other things...
Janne444 Premium
thanks for the feedback, I guess I'll see how it goes for a bit. :)
RudyStebih Premium
They are good products for anyone just starting out. But as you get more advanced and start improving the features of your website, you will most likely run into problems. As I am a power Wordpress user, I ran into problems right away. Good luck with your email list!!

Quite a powerful profile Rudy. Get in touch whenever you are in Toronto. At least we share the same weakness (Coca- Cola). I would be watching you here at WA with interest. I can learn quite a few tricks form you. I am inspired by your story and your humbleness.

I wish you every success in you $80k goal per month.
