About SamMiC
Joined June 2014
Hi, I'm Sam Cordero, my friends call me SamMi C. I'm from Chicago, Illinois and lived in Sunny SW Florida for 16 years until 2016. Now retired, I currently live in Japan with my lovely wife of 41 years.

Mid-2016, I took to the internet looking for a simple online business that I could do from the comfort of home - something I always had interest in but until then had not had the time for. I have to admit, it hasn't been as "simple" as I had hoped - then again good things don't come easy (well, not for some of us anyway).

Nevertheless, it has been an exciting and rewarding journey that guided me to Wealthy Affiliate, where I believe to have found exactly what I was looking for... An opportunity to help others through a great system with great support and an awesome community...

Hey! Let's not forget the money part.

Hi, Jackie.

Thanx for the follow back... The pleasure is all mine.

I found your bio very interesting as well. May I assume then that you have two (at least) niches: health & design? I think they both make for great, interesting topics.

You likely noticed that my niche is 3 fold (some think I should simplify it - but for now I like it just like it is). WA is just another exciting journey in your life as it is in mine.

Wishing you the best in Health, Wealth & (of course) Romance.

Hi Dena,

Welcome to the WA Clan & Thanx for the follow back. I'm sure that, like many of us, you have already found your comfort zone within the WA community and the importance of asking/sharing your questions.

WAU is an awesome source for learning but it's through the questions shared that many of us are often able to solve many of our issues - so please do share any questions/concerns you may have.

I can't help but be amazed by how much so many of us have in common... My wife & I are both dog lovers as well... We have replaced both our sons, who like yours are also now all grown up and no longer with us, with 2 little Bichon Frise (pic att)... Loving, loyal, and forever babies.

Here's a little something to help you on your journey to success...

If you need site comments/feedback, you need to go to Site Rubix - Site Feedback. There you can offer and request feedback. You can either offer feedback on 2 sites for 1 feedback on yours or buy credits to get feedback.
Alternatively, if you need comments on your actual post (so not within WA), it's best to go to the "Give and Take" Comment Drop Zone (Certification course 2, lesson 7).
Reply
SamMiC Premium
Thanx so much for the info. However, I may need to contact support because I have been using Site Feedback to provide feedback on other members' sites but have not been able to use my credits to request feedback. (See screenshot)

I don't see anywhere on that page a button for submitting my request. Any tips on that?

When I use "Comments", I get a message saying I need to create a website - have no idea what that's about. (See screenshot)

Any advice or suggestion are greatly appreciated.

Hi there, just wondering if you had a chance to read my previous reply to you. I would appreciate any suggestions.

That looks very strange and is definitely not right. I assume you created your website within WA, i.e. you used Site Rubix to do that and you registered your domain via Site Rubix as well. If that's the case, you need to let Site Support know as there seems to be a serious technical problem making Site Rubix think you don't own a site. Technical support should be able to fix that problem. All the best.

I recently had an issue where I was no longer able to access the premium account that I set up in Feb this year and had to resubscribe to an account I had canceled more than 4 years ago (which is this account).

I guess there are still some glitches that need to be taken care of. I'll go ahead and put in a ticket for that.

Thanx for getting back to me, I really appreciate it.

My experience thus far has been nothing less than "WAU"!

I've been premium since Feb 19 and, although I had a bit of a setback due to not being able to access my account I think I'm pretty much back on track.

Thanx so much for the follow back. Let me know your site link so I can send some awesome comments your way. And if you have a minute or two, please check mine out and let me know your very honest opinion (I can handle it - I think). I would love for Google to move me up a page or two (I think I'm like on page 100 right now).

Hola, mi nuevo Wa hermano.

I really appreciate all this info... definitely a lot to take in but, even though at the moment I have little to no idea what you are talking about with some of these strategies, I "will" work on them.

I know I'm just throwing things out there (was just told that I posted my most recent post on the blog when it should've been posted on my site - what do I know. So I just learned that "the WA blog post is just for talking about online business, or your life related to online business". Guess I'll just remove it and repost it to my site.

My sons and wife keep asking why I'm doing this, "It's just eating up all your time & your money & you should be enjoying your retirement instead?"... Is what they say. That's because I can't do anything that I don't apply as much time as I have to to make it work.

WA seems, I must admit, a bit out of my league, but there's still no difference. However, my wife and younger son do show some occasional signs of support since they understand I have always welcomed a challenge.

I just had Ezine approve 5 articles I submitted, so that was a bit of a motivator... as is hearing from you and other WA members who do seem to know what you're doing. I'm not doing this thinking about getting rich, I'm fine... but I gotta be honest, this is an awful lot of learning and work for an ol' dog like me.

Thanx again, I really do appreciate your helpful info.

Sam
PS: I know, my niche needs some serious narrowing but I enjoy trying to intertwine them. If you have a minute read my "Health, Wealth & Romance – Their Relationship" post. There, I make an attempt at defining the reason/purpose for why I combined the three. Like Frankie used to say, "You can't have one without the other".

Keisi Premium
Hola Sam,

I understand you enjoy trying to intertwine your niches, however, the search engines do not and your being able to have your visitors see what you are doing will be very limited if at all to be seen by anyone but the people you get to view your site.

Please complete all of the Get Started Here lessons as they will teach you how to build sites that will rank well and be seen by the people looking for what you posts to each individual niche. Your site must be relevant to the niche you are marketing to.

The articles that you have done will be of use and if you wish to concentrate on article marketing than jump on that with both feet. There will be many ways to make an income this way.

What you are learning at WAU is going to be a complete awareness of the ways to do business online. What you are learning is NOT a waste of your valuable time.

Hola mi hermano,

I can't thank you enough for the information and help you continue to offer me. I truly appreciate your help & advice and will be looking through all you mention today without fail, especially that related to my niche.

I know that you are absolutely right when it comes to my niche and will implement your advice. As I mentioned in my post, my intention is to split the three, Health, Wealth & Romance into individual sites in a few months. Now, however, I believe I will step that up a notch and focus on splitting them and building on each as separate niches.

I did check out the following article link and found it helpful and informative:
https://www.wikihow.com/Make-Money-by-the-End-of-This-Week-With-Just-Affiliate-Marketing

I will also direct more of my time to write articles as it's something I really enjoy. I am actually looking thru the link you provided as I write this reply. I became an eZine member (free) in March and have had 6 articles published so far.

I will definitely look into the "10 Sites that will Pay You to Write Articles..." you sent me. Maybe I'll be able to sneak in an article or two for a little extra cash.

Keisi, thanx so much again for taking time to help me get through what sometimes seems like a maze.

Muchas gracias,

Sam

Glad I could help, Sam!


Cost of living, of course, depends on lifestyle. But in many ways, Costa Rica is much more affordable than back home. A single person can live on between $1,400 and $1,700 a month. Some single people scrape by on considerably less, and others spend hundreds of dollars more, depending on their lifestyle.

Hello Sam,♫Welcome! I am so pleased you found WA. Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun at WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. And I share all my interesting findings on my blog space. I have listed them on a blog for you. When you type in “Blogs top rated by Loes” into the search bar on top, you'll find my goodies under Training. I hope to help you with those.

Hi Loes. thanx for the follow-back and the invite to your blog & training. Just read your bio... Very cool and impressive.

I'm not quite there yet. I decided to go initially with one site covering 3 topics (niches), Health, Wealth & Romance. My intentions, however, are to split the three into new websites with individual niches as well as sites for some of my topics and other domains. I'm hoping to accomplish this by the end of 2018 - no later.

Recently I had a bit of a set back because I could not access my original Premium site so I wound up resubscribing to a WA account I had canceled over 4 years ago (which I had forgotten all about).

That issue has been taken care of for the most part so now I'm able to once again focus on building my site(s).

Again, thanx for your kind words.

To (Y)our Success,

Hi and thanx for the invite to the moon... ^_^.
You all just don't recognize me but I'm already one of your buddies in another account SamMiCor (www.sammicor.com). You know me as SamMiC.

I've been having issues getting back into my SamMiCor account and under advice from Kyle (at least that's who I believe the email came from) I stop my auto pay for the account and resubscribed under this account info.

That was supposed to reactivate my account and all my info but... guess what?... it didn't. Now I'm back on this account which I had canceled four years ago (really wish I hadn't - but that's life).

I'm still waiting for a response from Kyle and/or Carson and hoping that they will correct this issue.

And there you have it. In the meantime, I will follow you all once more, simply because I like and appreciate the WA community so much.

Wow, Sam! That's frustrating! Well, it's great to have you back! I once had to reactivate my account, as well, due to taking a 5-month leave because of an injury. I didn't have a problem with it. I even got my 3 web sites back and activated within a half hour. I know it will work out for you, too. Hang in there and glad to connect---again!

Thanx.

My issue is a bit different, I do have an active account I started in Feb 2018. For some reason, while I was helping a member through some Amazon issues he was experiencing I had to log back into my account and when I tried to do so my credentials were no longer being recognized.

Yes, it has been frustrating as I had put a lot of time into my website and training. I'm still hopeful that Kyle or Carson will take care of this since now I have two Premium accounts I have paid for.

Worse scenario, I'll try to transfer my site to this account. If that's not doable, however much I hate the thought I might just have to cancel altogether.

Hello, SamMi.C. I will check out your site and leave comments. You can find my link on my profile page under the list of my posts.
I think the name of the section is "Connect with me here" or something like that.

You're probably not aware of this, but Kyle and Carson do not like us to put info about our links in the community. They consider it spam, and can ban a person from making comments.

I did not know this when I was new, either. I saw other people doing it a lot, and thought that was what we were supposed to do, until someone told me that it wasn't.

I suggest you do a search for the rules of the community at the top of this page where it says "search for help here". I wouldn't want you to get banned for an innocent mistake.

I think it would be helpful if they would put the rules into the first lesson of both courses so everyone knows what's expected of them.

Have a great week.

Carol

Since I am also a newbie at affiliate marketing, I have found that I learn best in the following way:

I watch each video and read the lesson.
I log onto my website.
I then re-watch the video and pause it after each segment of new information.
I then apply this bit of new knowledge on my site.
I re-start the video and repeat the pause and apply process.

In this way, I learn by seeing, hearing, and hands on.

I also participate in discussions and ask questions. The community will respond. Everyone here wants you to understand the information and the process.

I recommend that you complete each lesson before moving to the next. The lessons are designed to build upon each other.

Thanks for the follow. I'm now following you. Cindy

I'll share a little secret with you, one I did not include in my goals...as soon as I get my WA business to generate my initial (written) goal, I will be returning to Japan to be near my sons and grand-kids. I'm 62 now...so I MUST hustle if I am to achieve that goal.

Good luck to you too!

Thanx for the advise and kind words Robin, I will make every effort to ensure they are not forgotten. I believe WA is exactly what I've been searching for, since I needed something which truly guides one step by step. From what I keep reading by other members, that's exactly what WA does.

Welcome to WA Sam. I am Kyle, co-founder and also an active part of the community here at Wealthy Affiliate. If you ever need anything or you get "stuck"?, let me know as I will be more than happy to help you out.

I do suggest that you start out with the Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1) course. Work your way through this training and take action on the lesson tasks. This is a foundational course that will get you building valuable online assets in just your first few days.

Anyways, I hope to see more of you in the coming days here at WA! :)

Hi Sam, Nathaniell here. Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

I'm glad to see you've signed up and are ready to get started.

Before you start making money, 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. Watch this video here to learn how to maximize your community reach in WA https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/completing-your-account-set-up-at-wa-adding-a-description-image

More buddies means more support. More support means more success.

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 https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1/getting-rolling. Remember that you can ask any questions you want in live chat, on your personal blog, or in the Getting Started Classroom here https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/getting-started

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 private message if you are a premium member.


★ ★ ★ How To Access Your Exclusive 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.

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. This is available to all members. But I've lined up some other things which are a bit more exclusive.


☆ ☆ Bonus #1: Live Case Study 3 Part Webinar Series

Get access to a 3-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. Total length of the videos is about 3 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: Exclusive Look at The Top 5 Newbie Mistakes And How To Fix Them

Some questions get asked over and over again. It's very likely you have these same questions.

This is a two-part bonus. It includes an exclusive video not available to other WA members where I create a website EXACTLY how the training teaches you. Many new members don't follow the instructions properly and can't get their sites to work. Watch this video first, and you'll be up and running in 20 minutes with your own .com hosted here on WA.

I have also included 5 newbie website design and setup tips. These are super easy ways to turn your site from a basic Wordpress install into a streamlined canvas ready for action, and ready to impress your traffic.

This means you will be able to bypass these typical mistakes, get started faster, and on the right foot. This is an exciting time - you are building the foundations of a profitable online business, and I want to help you get started as quickly and smoothly as possible.

Nathaniell,
Thanx for all the great info. I feel strongly that I will be upgrading, however, as you do offer the 7 days to check things out, as a businessman I find that to be something of great value, therefore, I must take advantage of it, to clear any existing doubts.

I guess I would have to say that what has always gotten the best of me has been promoting my site. My understanding of SEOs is somewhat limited, so getting my site placed high enough to where people will find it has been an issue.

Something else I will share with you is that I have a service connected hearing disability, that is why finding someway which will help supplement my income through the internet is very important to me. I look forward to building this business and will follow your advice on doing so.

I could not agree with you more..."Those who ask questions interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their goals".

Thanx,

Absolutely take advantage of the 7 day trial - that's exactly what it's for!

I think with the training inside WA you can both learn some essential SEO tactics as well as learn how supplement your income with other affiliate sites.

One little bit of info I think you might find interesting at this point is that SEO is not really the "science" a lot of gurus make it out to be. They try to convince their customers that you A + B + C will always yield great results, but the truth is that Google's algorithm is a mystery and not all tactics work for all people.

Personally, I prefer using high volume to my advantage! Kyle talks a bit about it here https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/kyle/blog/you-want-online-success-it-starts-with-brute-force
