Hi everyone, made some good money but want to get serious!
Just introducing myself... and my story thus far...
I have been studying and applying affiliate marketing since 2006, with my first sale made with a PPC ad. I was doing hundreds of dollars in sales per month until direct linking became less popular with Google. I then tried my hand at some article marketing with Ezine and made some sales through there - my best effort was writing an article about abs... it took me about 30 minutes to write and I ended up with about $120! Stoked as.
I've also got some high traffic articles that remain in Ezine and send me the occasional sale via Clickbank.
Despite seeing money literally flow into my bank account, I am yet to start taking all of this seriously and make enough of an income to create financial independence. I realised tonight that maybe the money wasn't enough of a driving factor for me.
I am hoping that by joining a strong community of other affiliate marketers that I can bounce some of the energy off you guys and make a real go of it.
Look forward to meeting you all.
And if any of you reside in New Zealand - let me know! Always keen for a beer.
