About Whizbang
Joined February 2014
Hello! My name is Chris and I'm new to internet marketing, but not a career in the marketing field. I've run marketing programs and departments for a few Fortune 100 companies, but am tiring of the "rat race" and want to simplify my life and ultimately work for myself. I've done much research about the internet marketing field and been taken by the "gurus" a couple of times. I am impressed by the support I've seen offered on this site and I look forward to connecting with others in the community to share ideas and best practices.

My nickname growing up was "whiz" so decided to bring it back to life here and hopefully use it in my on-line pursuits.

In my spare time i enjoy spending time with family and friends, running my dogs, playing sports and attending sporting events, while enjoying a cold beer or two.

Hey, I just wanted to check in and see if had a chance to start exploring Wealthy Affiliate. I know that when I first joined WA I got serious information overload. I didn't really know where to get started or what exactly I was meant to be doing.

If you haven't started the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course - that's a good place to start. It'll take you through the whole process of what online marketing is, and how to build a successful website. Click the green"Get Started Here" button on the left.

If you're seriously lost or need help with ANYTHING, drop me a message on my profile or ask someone in chat :) Live chat is an awesome tool and there's usually someone that can solve your problem right away!

Thanks for checking in Nathaniell. Lots of info here and from your email training in less than a week. A lot of the material I understand from my current work life, but as I read and watch video it also gets my head spinning with ideas of what I could do when I'm up and running. I already have a dozen ideas i'd like to do, so I need to stop myself and stay focused on the training at hand before getting to excited. Still on lesson 3 as I work on my niche before moving on to lesson 4.

Hey, tons of ideas is better than having none, right? Now you just need to decide which one to go with :)

Welcome to the Wealthy Affiliate Online Business community. In the coming days you are doing to learn about how the Internet can be leveraged to earn a substantial amount of money online. BUT, before this can happen you need to understand that in order to achieve success at anything, it will take a bit of work and you will hit a few bumps in the road along the way.

That is why I am here and that is why there is a big community here that is behind you (and rooting for you) every step of the way. If you ever need anything Christopher, I am here to help so just let me know.

You can get started right away by working on the "Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1)" course found here:

Hi Christopher, 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.

Thanks Nathaniell. I'm already on lesson 3 and liking what I'm seeing so far. I also wanted to thank you for your candid approach to this whole online marketing business. I've done a lot of research to date and been duped a few times by the "gurus" so very happy to read your honest take on the business and the guidance to WA. I like what i'm reading and learning thus far and look forward to more.

Hey Chris. Sometimes we have to get duped a few times before we learn our lessons. Most of the people here have been conned a few times before we figured out what's legit and what's not. I'll be hanging around, so you can contact me here or on my profile (probably best on my profile) while you are getting your site set up and rolling.
