About Tekman
Joined February 2018
Hi to all,
my name is Peter and I have looked at affiliate marketing before but never had the time to investigate it quite so thoroughly. I'm originally from London but married a stunning Capetonian lady and have resided in Cape Town since 2011. We have a gorgeous 4 year old lad and I run my own computer repair business from home which is not working out quite as well as I expected.
Been working in PC business for twenty years or so but never really made my computer work to earn money for me before so this could be fun.
Used to design and publish flight simulation freeware software when I was in the UK for Microsoft Flight simulator and have been writing music for around thirty five years mainly for my own amusement.
Anyhoo tis great to join this friendly community. Cheers to all

Thanks for connecting, Peter and thanks for the follow. I followed you back. Hope your Pc business will thrive here. Btw, we are in the same niche.

Cheers John, but my niche is software sales on software that I use. Tried and tested over the years and I'll be adding repair and technical tips as a client service option as I build up my site. I think people in this industry charge far too much for repairing computers and I'm hoping to empower folks to deal with some of the far simpler repair work themselves, much like your repair section I guess.

Congratulations on going premium Peter!

This is when you start your new life. Envision yourself a year from now. Your future self will be patting yourself on the back. Think about the regular schedule you will follow to make your dreams become a reality. Take the little bit of extra time to lay it out. You will save time down the road, so you can focus on what really matters.

Best of luck to you!

Hi Gary, I've just spent the best part of 30 mins on your site my friend, watched your video and oh yes you got it and it is nice to find someone else who shares the same principles as me.
Your site looks nice and very easy to navigate.

Totally off subject but you said you like Bikes. I remember just before my father died ten years ago a friend of his had purchased a Matchless 550 twin (If i recall correctly) back in the 1950's and the day he purchased it he dismantled and oiled/greased it up packing it away.
Anyway fast forward to 2005, my dad purchased the bike in parts and built it up completely to running condition within a day or so without manuals. He used to own one back in his younger days and now he had a brand new one to play around with.
Anyway I think I may be coming to you in future re car repairs although I can do some through applied common sense, but the bigger jobs like engine removal and breakdown thereof im out of my comfort zone.

Hey Peter,

I forgot to mention the other day that I am going to still be offering you my awesome bonuses if you join within the next 4 days.

Here are the bonuses that you are going to be getting:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)
(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there. Where else can you access the CEO of the company for help?
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well Peter and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)

Hey Kyle if paid the $19 now and wanted to pay for the rest of the years membership next month would this be at $49 per month rate or would i still get a discounted price please and if so how much,
Cheers
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yes, you could definitely do this.

You can upgrade to yearly once you are a monthly member ($359 per year, which works out to $29 per month average). You will see the "Upgrade and Save" button within the main menu or you can visit this page directly to move to a yearly membership (upon going Premium).

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/upgrade

The yearly membership will be pro-rated, meaning any extra time you have left on your current month will be applied as a discount to your yearly membership Peter. :)

If you have any further questions do let me know.

Here we are, 10 days into your experience at WA. :)

I hope things are going well Peter! I want to remind you of one thing, your hard work and dedication IS going to pay off. Keep working through the training, communicating within the community, and of course, ask for help when you need it.

Just heading out for a bit here, but do leave me a message if you need a hand with anything. You should have Premium communication back for an additional 7 days now, so hit me up when you get a chance Peter!

Hi kyle thanks for the extra time on premium it helps a lot and id generous.
I know it is cheeky me asking, but is there a possibility you could make installing plugins on wordpress site s a non premium feature please?
Im not one for installing loads of plugins but i dont like the way the title moves up when scrolling and would prefer to install a sticky header its more professional and keeps navigation visible.
I will go premium likely next month because there is still so much i need to learn to make this venture successful.

It is a Premium feature, lol. If you want access to this and 100's of other features within our elite Premium membership, you can do so. It is completely up to you and next month if you move to Premium, you will be able to take advantage of over 50,000 different plugins along with A LOT more.

There is nothing more comprehensive, technically advanced, and cost-efficient platform for building and managing online businesses anywhere in the world. There is a industry leader (and by a long shot).

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! :)

Gonna make a start on this tomorrow morning. I will most likely be bugging you fairly regularly so watch this space buddy you have been warned LOL!

Good day Kyle, thought I'd contact you regarding the below.
Reality suddenly kicked in or perhaps they could be called doubts and worries.
I live in South Africa and naturally taxes have to paid like anywhere else but i don't have a South African bank account and cannot open one until I have my permanent residency which I applied for back in April 2016. Sure it takes a while to get this and pretty much anything legal done here. I am originally from London and still have an active UK bank account which is linked to my Paypal.
I am worried that when I start earning I only have my wife's South African bank account to deposit funds and obviously she has to declare the tax every year on the amounts deposited and quite frankly I do not want to cause a financial headache for her.
I did think about linking my UK account with this venture but I imagine i would then be liable for tax at UK rates even though I am living in South Africa.
Whatever the case may be and despite that no-one likes paying taxes it is inevitable all income has to be declared and I have no problem with that I just want to do it right,
Blimey should I be asking you this at all?
