My Journey with Affiliate Marketing has sparked so many things in my life. I have truly learned to inspire myself, which is something I never knew was possible. I have learned through failure, success, and trying I truly do have what it takes to win at everything.
The key to winning at everything is first knowing that you can and actually believing you can. Once you believe in yourself you have made the most crucial step in changing your mindset. Once you have developed absolute belief in yourself the other areas of your mindset begin to change organically and positively.
I shopped around the internet, read books, watched thousands of YouTube videos, fell for hundreds of different sales pitches and sales funnels trying to find away to stop having to work so hard for so little and sacrifice everything and everyone in my life. Needless to say I was spending nearly half of every paycheck trying to find a solution or something on the side that I could do. I did not have much more than a Internet connection and computer from work. I needed something I could do from anywhere as work always kept me on the road traveling state to state. I would work long hours in extreme conditions causing serious damage to my body and my spirit.
Finally I watched a small ad that was on YouTube about how this guy claimed to work part time and make full time living from a simple business model with no real skill or training. I thought Yeah right heard this one bet this is going to cost. But I could not sleep that night so, I got up and sat in the bathtub of the motel six and watched the ad at least 10 more times, finally took a look at where I was and my bank account on my app. Said ” this is it, I have nothing to loose and I will stick with this until I make it work!”
I downloaded his free mini eBook, signed up for his free webinar, stayed up all night sitting in an empty cold hotel bathtub reading the eBook and watching everything on his YouTube channel taking notes. I was so pumped up. When the morning rolled around I told my co workers about it and they all looked at me like I had really lost it. We went about the work day and I just kept telling each one of them over and over about all the amazing things I learned while they all slept! They seemed interested but not like me. We rushed back to the hotel at the end of the day, I slammed my laptop on the crappy hotel table where the light was even broke. The guys all scurried around the room changing their clothes and heading out for diner. I declined because I had a webinar about making millions set up to start in just 28 minutes.
I logged on joined the webinar 8 minutes early with my previous days notes and empty notebook ready to go. I was so excited. My wife called me to see how the day was going and I said love ya babe, but I am busy learning how to be a millionaire. She just laughed and said “OK then call me when your done.” She had grown accustom to my frantic ploys to make fat stacks of green and staying up all night working every channel I could get my internet thumb on.
I watched for 90 minutes mesmerized how the cool looking guy wrote all over the white board behind him and drew out the entire process, then he went step by step on his own screen and shared it all. There must of only been maybe 100 people in the hole world watching and I am not sure if anyone else was feeling what I was feeling but I could not contain myself.
I had notes everywhere, still in my work boots and coveralls I had been wearing in the cold Oklahoma weather. I felt like I had already made a million dollars. I called my wife and told her all about it, she said ” well hunnie that is fascinating but the washer is leaking everywhere, the garbage disposal is clogged, the dog ate the couch and my truck wont start. Unless I borrow some of your new found wealth to fix this stuff, then I need my husband to focus on finishing the job and get home please!”
It was a classic gut punch for me as a man, I just could not take it anymore. I had to make this work. My roommates came back to the room so I went to my cold empty bathroom with my headphones and signed up for affiliate networks and wix account. I began looking at all the commissions and offers computing on my crappy Walmart prepaid “smart phone” how many offers I had to sell or get someone to click on to make $100, $200, $500, even $10,000. I started to get more excited. Next thing I knew I was building landing pages and sales funnels that actually looked pretty decent for someone who had never even built a website. I was writing the sales copy for the pages and thinking about how all the landing pages I had been through as a customer. What are things that made me buy or keep going.
Eventually I had about 12 of them set up and was confident enough to break out the debit card and start buying domains for the landing pages. I only had $120 left of my per deim and that was suppose to feed me all week but something in me told me to buy these domains and I would make it.
To sum up the story, I did not make one sale or commission of those 12 domains/landing pages ever. But the knowledge I gained in those 3 days/nights of trying and learning the affiliate process brought something out in me that I did not know existed.
4 years later I can say I have successfully mastered the affiliate marketing business models. I can generate revenue from anywhere in the world and even have done so with the the internet.
I decided that I wanted to write a book about how to get started with affiliate marketing, how the business models work and then give my readers an actual step by step work book to help guide them through the first 12 months of there journey.
See I was a journalist when it came to learning things, I wrote down everything , still do. But that is not something most people do which causes them to give up and fall of the path to their dreams of independence and financial security. The 12 month take action work book included at the end of my book forces you to keep moving forward taking action towards your goal. The best part is that you can start all over anytime you want, do it at your own pace, spend more time where you need and reference the book!
The book truly will help you out. I am still a in the same industry I was when I went through this experience, but I am in a place within myself that truly lets me do my job because I love it not because I have too. That is powerful and that is freedom.
The first person I taught this skill to was my wife, the skeptic, and let me tell you she has caught the fire now.
Affiliate Marketing can really change your life in ways you never thought possible. You just have to learn to educate yourself, take action and keep moving forward.
There are even children doing this business model now making millions from there iPad in their rooms and parents do not even know it.
Folks, you owe it to yourself to give it a try. Pick up your FREE copy of my book. Give it a read. Try it for 12 months. Even if you just dedicate an hour or two a week for a year. You will learn more about yourself and abilities just as I did.
