Where is Mark Ling

I think it would be cool if Mark was more active in the forums.
I know he is probably busy but gee 2 posts a month and his last forum post was like in July?

It is his site/product after all.

I'm not very active here either mainly because the forums are not really all that active and normally take a few days for someone to answer. But seriously you would think he would drop in more often to help out affiliates.

You do all this research on a person before you buy into something thinking they are super helpful and trustworthy etc to give them a couple hundred $ and all you see is his staff.

Yeah there is some great content on here from him, some great videos, some great audios ect but the forums are actually the most valuable place for me because you get more one on one.

It might lift peoples spirits up if he chimed in a bit more.
I'm actually a member of another forum(free) and the dude who owns it is a high earner has multiple projects and still has time to give his forum members and potential affiliates his full attention posting almost everyday.

Just saying,
Wazza

Hi Wazza

Mark has actually been pretty busy lately, with the birth of his 2nd child so is taking some well deserved time out to spend with his family - which is one of the perks of running your own affiliate business I guess :)

I'm sure you will see him around alot more in the new year but just remember there are over 20 of us staff here to help if you need anything and both Michelle and Cecille are on the forums daily to help with anything you might need.

We are more than a one man band ;)

Hope you have a very merry Christmas.

Hi,

Yep and must say the staff does rock but it would be nice to see him more active.

I have 5 girls but can manage to spend a fair amount online doing the things I want, of course he would be a lot busier but obviously has the money to outsource.

In a way it's a bit of a let down really, and I might be just having a bad day but if I ran a successful online biz I would try and interact with my members/customers as much as possible. Especially with all the upsells and NEW products/aff links he promotes through his webinars that go no where other than a sales page.

I guess it has been a big year with all the disasters ect.
Just my 2cents

Ohh and Merry Christmas to you too :)

Hi Magnizmo,

I'm sorry I haven't been active on the forum. I used to spend a lot more time on the affilorama forums and do intend to get back in a lot more next year. I'm taking some time out right now in order to spend more time with my family (I just had a new son born) and am working part time hours until mid January.

This is an area of my performance as a mentor to many of you out there that I'm not pleased with and my intention is to be more active on the forum and on my Affilorama blog from mid January.

5 kids, wow, I don't know how you do it. I'm struggling with 2! In fact, it was when my first son Benjamin was born (19 months ago) that my forum participation started to drop off as my available time each day took a big nosedive.

I take your comments on board and it is my intention to be more active on the forum next year from mid january.

I hope you have a great Christmas ahead, all the best,
Mark

Hi Mark,

Congrats, and you lucky bugger 2 sons - I always wanted a boy. My youngest girl is a tomboy so I think that's as close as I will get lol. Yep five girls from the age 16 down to 7 plus our dog is a female so things get pretty hectic around here.

Thanks for replying and I didn't mean to sound rude if I did, just reading your reply lifted my spirits up a little and I know there will be newbies out there that feel the same. YOU are the one we invested our money in, but your staff are also great as well.

IM is a lonely game and forums are a great place to connect with others, mingling with people from all different levels from noob to advanced is great but when the guru or people with great success(just thought of borat) chime in it really does get you motivated.

Once again congrats on the new born, thanks for the reply and I really do hope to see you active in the forums more when you can.

And a big Merry Christmas to you and the fam.

Wazza

@Mark, Good to hear that you will be back soon. A lot of us old-timers remember how active and thriving this forum used to be back in the day :)

I've heard some rumors though that there are some good things to come soon at Affilorama ;)

PS: Kudos on the second kid, by the way, and have a great holiday :)

Ha ha, James!

Yeah, I'm trying to decide if it's worth it to go. If Mark is going, that might just push me over the edge :)

I want to, but got too many irons in the fire right now to take off. Moving and all the drama that happened just after took me away from my business too long, and now I have to focus on getting a huge backlog of work caught up.
