I think I'm next...
I came to the online business world in late 2006, and didn't made some pennies for a couple of week, clicking on crazy paid to surf stuff... Until I got interested in the forex market. I got into a newsletter (that was excellent by the way, the best in the whole market.. a little bit like Mark is teaching us) and started to learn.
And guess what?
The forex site owner was a savvy Internet marketer and send an email to all his lists about affiliate marketing. In fact, it was an affiliate training to sell his products. Smart move. It was $197 for 3 months of coaching, and I didn't have a penny. Since I'm an action man, I immediately sent him an email... And I got accepted for free. A couple of weeks later, I make my first commission in the forex market ($250). Immediately after that, I get sub-affiliates selling for me (powerful stuff). And then, after I (and many other members) make truckload of money for him, the man disappear and don't pay us.
I (and some others) was about to go and find him at home (I'm an ex body guard...), but I let it go. After this, I came back to zero because of info overload... Until I find Affilorama, and start making real money, getting top search engine rankings for my site... and now, I even have my own products (excellent to build a list of buyers), but I am not really marketing them because I enjoy marketing affiliate programs (no customer services.... prefer to be offline...)
Affilorama got me focused and on the right track.
Now, being your own boss is difficult. I didn't really work since February 2008. Time to be more serious and building truckload of affilorama websites.
It's a long post. Doh.
