    Hello Everyone!

    My name is Kevin, I'm originally from Los Angeles, Lived in Dallas for over 16 years and now I live in New Mexico. I'm new to the forum but not new to IM. I was heavily involved in Internet Marketing for over 15 years, created some products, worked with some pretty big names and made enough to support myself and my son for several years.

    But then something happened to me about 5 years ago and I just felt the need to spend more time actually helping people in my local community. I left the computer screen, went outside and started feeding homeless people, that led to helping to build a church, then building a homeless shelter, then being in charge of a facility that works with victims of domestic violence.
    SEMrush
    After 5 years of working in my community, I decided that 5 years was enough and I needed to spend more time back at home, so I recently got back online to see what's been going on in the Internet Marketing World. The first thing I realized is that I have been a member on one forum for over ten years and I really have to get out and meet some new people.

    I found this site on a blog listed as one the best IM forums to join, so here I am.
    That's my story. I know most people join these forums to sell something but I'm really more interested in building new relationships. learning what's new and helping out in anyway I can. And also because I think Internet Marketers are some of the most creative and fascinating people in the world to meet!

    Thanks for letting me share...The End

    Dang, first time I have ever seen anyone on the internet from Dallas, Oregon. I guess the Oregon rain finally got to you after 16 years since you are originally from the Los Angeles desert and now in the New Mexico desert.

    LOL... no not really, I actually had no say so in the matter seeing as how I was still in junior high when my mom decided to move us from Los Angeles. I like it better out here in the midwest anyway. Don't mind visiting back home in the city, but don't think I could ever live back there again.

    You are good natured and affable, even when provoked. You'll do well here I suspect. Welcome to DP and keep smiling.;)

    My father retired from the Los Alamos labs. Beautiful area that.

    I expect you'll find that marketing online has changed some in the last 5 years. It's true that there's more competition now, although that can be good as it provides more challenge. And the basics remain the same.

    They say if you build a list of subscribers the money will come. That was true at one time but today I believe it's an incomplete statement. There is money in a list IF the list contains buying, loyal followers. And you don't really need a huge list if it's the right type. Fill your list with people who don't bother to open your mailings and it only costs you.

    What niche are you in Netcitynet?

    Yes, Los Alamos is indeed a beautiful area. Heard the same thing from my old connections about THE LIST and I couldn't agree with you more. I do promo videos and article writing.
