About WAFF
Joined November 2006
Hi, my name is Marcus. Thanks for stopping by my Wealthy Affiliate profile!

Please Note: I have two profiles here at WA. This is my original profile that dates back to Nov' 2006. My more recent and most up to date profile can be found via the following link or by searching WA for 'Marcus WFHW'.

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/marcus-wfhw

So here's my story...

When I joined Wealthy Affiliate in Nov 2006, I was an over-worked and underpaid factory worker. I'd dabbled with making money online via a number of different methods and products, but nothing stuck.


Since that day so much has happened to me at WA! I have since left my factory job, which means that I am able to spend more time with my family as a work from home Internet marketer!

I soon discover that everything you need to succeed is right here at WA, except the effort part. Once I learned how to focus and work at this like nothing I've ever done before (it did take me some time to realize this), the success followed.

And that's why I came here...to provide a better life for my wonderful family, and it is so very much worth it. I have them to thank for having faith in me, and of course Kyle & Carson for not only providing all we need here at WA, but being there for me personally too.

You'll never catch me leaving WA...it's become my second home! Having reached so many personal goals at WA, my objective now is to help those that join WA to realize they can also enjoy a high level of success here at WA.

Wishing you all the best!

Marcus

I somehow stumbled onto this post the night I joined WA and found your story invigorating, inspiring and giving one hope. I also appreciate and admire your emotions when I read about your friend... how is she?

I discovered your watchdog site, which is (in my opinion) extremely professional and the reviews really thorough, also written using decent grammar and with few e's and o's, which are negligible. I can learn so much from you and feel very blessed to have found you.

I hope you find the time to be available now and again...

Here is a program I hope you will take a look at. And a question for you. Why are people so afraid today to take a very small risk (heck no risk right now) in a prelaunch program that can really help them to grow their business by leaps and bounds? Go here now and just take a look around. Just copy and paste the link. Seems like WA won't let it become a clickable link. http://www.zingbizpro.com/?ZBP?=hotbizman

Do you have any thoughts or ideas as to what else I can usefully do? In order to get back on course, or is this just Google etc. waiting to see if the initial burst was for real? I would appreciate any help from an older hand!

Hi Marcus
I am fairly new ar WA and I am retired. My income fro retirement isn't really what it should be and I am trying very hard to learn WA.
My mother is 97 and I have to help take care of her so my process is slow because I spend so much time driving to her house (150 miles). However I have build my website and have submitted and article to street articles that is pending. I am very insecure about my website though and I am not an affiliate at the online company I have chosen to try to market. It is a company that sells anti aging creams and you must give them a link to your website before they will accept you as an affiliate so I haven't done that yet. I just submitted my article to street articles today.
I do have a question. Should the article I submit to street articles be a different article then the one on my website? I wasn't really thinking about that so I wrote an article and it is on my website then I submitted it to street articles. But maybe I should have written a different one for street articles.

Thanks and I hope you will be my buddy

Hi Marcus. I've got a few questions that you probably could answer for me. Most of the article marketing info I've read is dated '08 or '09. I'm wondering how effective these techniques are today. I've read a lot of posts that buying domains and building websites is the only way to make $. Ideally I'd like to promote some related products on 1 website and then article market and backlink the heck out of it. Then I can start a new site with a new niche and repeat. My goal is to spend very little $ for 6 mo. and hopefully make enough to pay for WA membership and then some to start into PPC and other marketing areas that may require some ad$. What are your thoughts on this plan?

Hi, Marcus,
I see you are online, so I thought I would congratulate you on your success, which shows that it can be done! I just got serious about IM in January, and my goal is to be able to quit my day job at the end of this year and relocate to Hawaii.
Maybe you can answer this question for me. When I check my My-Linker cloaking tool, my website, ewealthyaffiliates.com, has had over a 100 clicks, but no sales. How many clicks on average does it take to get a sale?
Thanks, and have a great time in Vegas!!

Hey Marcus, Happy Christmas to you. May you and your family be blessed this year and the year ahead. Just wanted to ask you a little question.

Let's say I'm writing an article and the keyword I'm targeting is "how to make money at home" I get an equal density for 'make money at home' which is also one of the keywords I'm targeting in the campaign.

Is it advantageous, to use this one article for both those keywords? or should I write 2 separate articles to target each?

Please help me with these two questions.

First: I have been a WA member for one year. I took the 30 Article Marketing Course, great course by the way, and I paid for one year when I signed up.
Well, I still need you guys but my membership is expired. I am sorry for the inconvenience but I have to budget one more year of WA membership.

1. How much will the cost be?
2. Can I re-enroll using my own affiliate link and get the commission?

Please let me know as soon as possible I do not want to get left behind. I have to make this work and I am willing to put in the dwork.

Thanks so much.

Hi Marcus, I have started training for the WA super affiliate program, from the emails I have got I understand you are the person to talk to about any problems I might have. When trying to set up my blog/funnel system I'm having difficulties putting in the free cousre (www.madmarketingmethod.com) it will only let me have so many characters which means the m on .com is being left out, any suggestions on why this is happening, I am a real novice when it comes to all this stuff so I'm really stuck, any help would be much appreciated

Thanks for the quick response. but it seems I've not gotten anything. Is it because it takes some time before it shows? the other alternatives are my friend was joking with me or the commission for some reason didn't come my way.

either way, this is all very exciting. :)

Hi Marcus! I loved reading your success story and hope that soon I will have one just like yours. I'm doing this for my family as well. I really like IM and LOVE WA. I joined about 3 weeks ago, and I am steadily working my way through the guided training. The thing is, I know WHO I want to market to (baby boomers cause I am one) and have done some research and found lots of keywords. I have one WP blog site set up, and a domain name for building a second website, both hosted by WA. I'm writing to you because I REALLY want to be a Super Affiliate,to share/promote WA and I hear your the man to talk to. I have not seen anything like this anywhere, and I've been looking. I wasted lots of time and money, and would like to keep others from going through that if I can. And really feel very strongly about becoming a Super Affiliate. For the long haul, not just to make a quick buck before I do something else. Hear are some questions...When should I sign up for SA training? I won't make Vegas this year, that's for sure. (but I surely could use $$, holidays are coming)

So, should I
1) Complete the Newbie training and sign up for SA training in January? Or
2) Can I sign up for the SA program now AND finish my newbie training as well, doing both at the same time? (I am disabled, so I pretty much have as much time to devote to this that is necessary.)
3) Are there other things I can learn that will better prepare me for becoming a Full Time WA Marketer? Things like research, article marketing, etc? And do you really personally give one on one training and support to people training and become SA's? ( as closely as the training promo's indicate).

I have had some pretty bad experiences with online business ventures. Nobody does anything they say they will, etc. I don't know who sponsored me in WA.. Is there a way you could find out who my sponsor is? Do A LOT of members become SA's (how tough is my competition?)

Being a sponsor, my relationship with my newbies won't end at the time a person joins our community. Just the opposite in fact. I have never had a sponsor who actually did the things they promised, things sponsors should do. And my commitment to new members will be the same on day 322 as it was on day one. I will do my best to show them the way. Being new, and not knowing a soul from, WA can be pretty intimidating , almost scary at first. (it still is) There is so much information its hard to stay focused and not get lost. I will help them through that, and answer any questions they have. I have posted a couple questions on the forum and got no replies. I sent a couple messages and welcomed my fellow newbies and got maybe 1 reply. I wrote a long message to Potpiegirl and didn't hear from her either. So telling newcomers they can get any questions answered, that they are joining and will become part of a warm, friendly and welcoming community hasn't been my experience. And the forums(something I've never done before) hasn't been good so far anyway. But I'm not giving up! I need to learn how to break the ice and communicate well with other members via the forum so that I am able to show others how to do it. Or doesn't it work like that here? Do we get the name and contact info for the people we bring into WA?

Finally my last question (YES!) I signed up at the $97 rate. Apparently this level is fairly new, because any time membership rates are mentioned it says $47, but not $97. There isn't much information available about it except for the comparison page. What is the commission amount that will be earned on this level, if they paid monthly and/or annually?

I am looking forward to a long, enjoyable, successful and prosperous "relationship" as a member of Wealthy Affiliate University!

And Thank You so much in advance for answering my MANY questions. I appreciate your help very much, in advance and hope that I will be hearing from you soon.

Warmest Regards,

Susan Wendland

Hey Marcus, I am looking forward to being part of the 30 day article marketing club.
I really want to be successful promoting WA and I think this is just the ticket to get me there.
The 30 day plan is a great idea to 1) keep existing members 2) helping current members grow their knowledge and build a business 3) ensure WAs' future growth by recruiting new members.
Once the word gets out about how successful this is (which I have no doubt it will) should create exponential growth for WA.

I've taken on new projects while pursuing IM, so may not be able to take advantage of this opportunity this go round, but will I have another chance at another time? Well, I guess you won't know that until you see how this one works. I think it's a wonderful thing to do. Sort've like a master class. Thank you for doing it.

Hi Marcus,
I am new here, I have been doing the training, but I am finding it all a little daunting. I also had a message from another WA on how to start with no money, but I am stilled confused. I am willing to put 100% of my time, after my 9-5 job 3 nights a week and as much time as I can on weekends. I am 100% committed, but need a hand. I have never had any internet marketing experience, but like the other WA I have no spare cash to start with and I fear I am about to be made redundant. Can you please guide me?

Congratulations on a successful transition in your life. Your success and the way you accomplished it is inspiring for me. I've been in marketing most of my life...however, it was the type of marketing I call 'old school'. Standing in front of 10 people one meeting and a thousand the next. That didn't bother me at all...but this is intimidating. I do feel like I'm in the right place even though 100% of this seems completely foreign to me. And your right...my motivation is my family and the desire to leave something special for my to sons when I'm called home.

I do believe I have found a home. Thanks for your inspiration.
