About Techstep97
Joined April 2015
Greetings! My name is Frank. I’m 39 years old and am from Lancaster, PA. I’ve always had a fascination with music, computers and technology. I remember falling in love with my older brother’s Commodore Vic20 computer back in the early ’80s – the fact that you could program it to make sounds, and if you’d string the sounds together the right way, you could turn those sounds into music. I enjoy working with computers, and love writing poetry. People have told me I have a gift…

Back in 2012, I had lost a good job. While looking for a new job, I found a “Help Wanted” ad on Careerbuilder’s site that took me to an ad for Project Payday, a make-money-online program. It was at that point I found out about making money online, working from home, and internet marketing. I thought “How cool is that! I could work from home for real!”

I did alot of searching and learning about this new opportunity, but let me tell you… I made some stupid mistakes. I bought into some of those Push-button things, you know, the ones that claim you could become a millionaire by pushing a button. Yeah, it didn’t work. They never do, I’ve learned.

I failed. I didn’t make any money with Project Payday, I tried Freebie Trading sites, I tried several things, but I really had no clue what I was doing. Eventually, things got REALLY bad. I had found a job (not working online), but I couldn’t keep up with all my bills, and I ended up losing my room for rent. At this point, I was homeless for awhile. I had no choice but to give up researching this “online thing” as well as just about everything else.

Fast forward to now… Since then, I had turned my life completely around. I met a wonderful woman, eventually moving in with her and getting married. I decided to look into this “online thing” once again, in hopes of doing it right this time so that I can provide better for my family. I’ve learned a ton of things in the last year alone, and have found that it is entirely possible to be successful online.

My “Why”: My wife, my family – all of them (brothers, extended family), and our future. I just want to help others succeed and show others that it is possible to earn a living online.

Oh and going back to the subject of computers, I also enjoy learning about all the ins and outs of them, the different softwares and hardware. One thing that brings me much joy (even though it’s been a long time since I’ve done it) is take all the individual parts and putting them all together to make a working (desktop) computer. Quite ironic, since at this time I’m only using a laptop… ?

I hope to get to meet and interact with all of you here. Thanks for reading.

Hey there, Frank! Thanks for checking in. I decided to join WA because I've been looking up reviews on several different internet marketing products, and I keep seeing people's blogs promoting Wealthy Affiliate. So, I figure this program must be doing something right (in regards to the search engines)!

Anyway, I decided to join under a review you did, I was sold. Right now I'm deciding on a niche. I'm kinda iffy on which direction to go, like I know a bit about the "make money" niche, but I kinda want to go to something where I can stand out more in the search engines and at the same time it be something I like doing. It just seems like the competition in the "make money" niche is too high and crazy.

I'm thinking of Computer software, music and audio editors as a niche... or something that I could involve my wife with, she's big into the game Farmville and knows alot about it.

Sooo, that's where I am right now. I am definitely going to upgrade within the next 2 days.

Thanks,
-Frank

Sounds like it has been quite a journey to find your way here to WA Frank, but I am glad you did.

There definitely are a lot of scams and programs that simply do not teach you what you need to know out there. It sounds like you may have run into one or more of these on your way to making it here at Wealthy Affiliate. I can assure you that much brighter days are ahead now that you have found WA and I really do look forward to working with you.

If you ever need anything at all going forward, I am personally here to help you out so feel free to drop me a reply to this post or you can find me in chat (I am frequent there).

PS. I hope you are having an amazing week thus far!

Welcome Frank, to Wealthy Affiliates and thanks for accepting my invitation to check it out.

There's a lot to learn here, the best place to start would be the level 1 certification course. So start with the first lesson by clicking on the link below. Be sure to create a profile and add a picture, that way you'll get lots of help from all the peeps in WA. You'll find out how to do this in the getting started link above.

Sadly some people don't even get this far, for some unknown reason.

If you can do this, (i.e.) follow simple instructions, (implementing as you go), soon you will be on your way to making your first sale.

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/affilicoach or by private message if you are a premium member.

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 to lesson 1!

★ ★ ★ 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.

Please feel free to ask questions in the community through live chat or the Getting started classroom above. Or as I mentioned before, hit me up anytime you want in WA.

Anyway, I know you'd be eager to have a browse around so I'll let you get your feet wet.

Best of luck, and don't forget you can always ask me for help!


Best,
Frank
