About Me

My name is Mark, And I Can Help You Escape The 9 to 5 Grind!

Create Your Escape Plan.

Create Your Escape Plan.

Many of you will be dreaming of financial freedom and being able to escape the  9 to 5 grind.

I think that the first thing that you should do is have a reality check. Building a successful online business will take you time and effort. It will not happen overnight.

You should in my view see the development of a full time income and beyond as being a medium to long term goal.

You will have setbacks and disappointments along the way. You will almost certainly need to learn new skills.

Learning Some Harsh Realities of Internet Marketing.

I have over a number of years purchased numerous and often expensive internet marketing training courses from internet “gurus”.

It is fair to say that I learned a number of things from these courses, but did not achieve the financial success that I had been promised.

I got the impression that I was being taught methods of making money online that were perhaps successful 2 to 3 years earlier that would no longer work. I had the feeling that I was jumping on board with a technique after all of the money had been made by someone else!

I also got sucked into the idea that it was possible to make quick easy money using that latest push button software. The reality is that the only one who makes any money out of this type of product is the guy who is promoting it to people who want to make money online.

This is a harsh reality of internet marketing.

Getting on The Right Track.

What I have discovered and want to share with you is that it is possible to build and develop a successsuccessful and sustainable online business.

You can learn the A-Z of how to do it at your own pace. You do not need any special skills or prior knowledge. Your online business can be built on a brick by brick basis over a period of time. The important thing is that you are on your way and making progress towards financial independence.

It will take effort, training and occasionally you will have frustrating days. However, it will be worth the effort and you will have the pleasure and excitement of watching your business grow and develop.

You will wake up each morning, knowing that you are moving in the right direction. The hassles of the day will bug you less.

Laying The Foundations of Your Business.

The foundation of your online business will be the creation of your website. I am a Baby Boomer and built this website from scratch  using the WordPress website system. I have followed the training that has been provided by Wealthy Affiliate and have not looked back.

The second step is to create interesting reader friendly content that visitors engage with. Once you have gained your visitors’ trust you are in a position to recommend products and services that your visitors are already interested in.

Some of your visitors will purchase the product or service and you will in turn receive a commission on the sale. You do not get involved in the dispatch of the product or service or the collection of money. Your job is to provide your visitor with quality information about the product or service.  The beauty of this is that you can recommend products and services that you are personally interested in. 

You can write about what you enjoy!

Live Your Passion

You can start building your first WordPress website for free and also receive comprehensive up to date training and technical support by becoming a free Starter Member of Wealthy Affiliate. To get started all you need to do is enter in the box below a general name for your website.

Don’t be daunted by this, just think of something that interests or excites you. Once that image is in your mind, then think of a name and enter it into the box. Job done.

If that name has already been taken the system will indicate this.

Simply choose another similar name. Each website has it’s own unique name or as it is more technically known it’s “domain name”. This is something like the car registration number for the website.

Will You Succeed Online?

This is question that we all asked ourselves. The answer to this is simple.

It is entirely in your own hands, all of the tools, help and support that you will need is provided by Wealthy Affiliate.  As Henry Ford said :-

” Whether you think you can or you can’t – either way you are right”

If you think that you can with the right tools, training and support build a successful online business then you can. If you think that you can’t you will prove yourself to be right.

I am sure that you think you can and want to hear about your successes online.

Once again I am Mark and it has been a great pleasure meeting you.

    Hi Mark –
    In emails I always get offers of programs to sign up for. And I always check reviews for all programs that sound interesting. Twice I have been sent to your page (don’t know how it happened) I have since book marked you as you have reviewed several programs I was wondering about. I am in All solutions Network but I have not promoted it heavily. I would like you to check a program – Push Button Profits – that I believe would be a program you could add to your “Good Programs” list. I know there’s a ton of stuff out there and you can’t cover them all. But I do believe here is one you may like to ckeck out and pass it on to those who are looking for a legit program with reputable people behind them.
    Best Wishes – Sandy

      Hello Sandy, Thanks for stopping by. I have had a chance to take a look at Push Button Profits and sadly I cannot recommend it my visitors. The program preys on the myth that you can make money from a turn key fully automated system. If someone had found a way of making money using a no work turn key system then would they really sell it to people for $77 or the discounted price of $37!!! You need to put in some time and effort in order to make money online, this is a big reality check.

      If you want to make money rather than be ripped off by programs like Push Button Profits then I would take a look at Wealthy Affiliate.

      Very best wishes

      Hello Brandon, thanks very much for your comment about my website it is much appreciated. I look to generate traffic by finding quality low competition keywords. Once they have been found I write content around them. I also promote my site through social media like Twitter and Pinterest. I have also done some paid advertising via Google AdWords and Bing. In addition to this I have done email marketing using a free account with Email Hog. I hope that this has given you a few ideas.
