An Affiliate Story You Should Read

More than ever now, there is so many possibilities, opportunities and actual stable businesses and success stories being shared, I can barely go a day without hearing or reading one. If you’re not there yet, keep on, keeping on.

If I can flash back for a few here, I would like to reminisce a bit about my getting my start in affiliate marketing. You see, a lot of entrepreneurs actually started with affiliate marketing. The more I meet, the more excited I get. Why excited? Because I’m an Affiliate, Advertiser, and Broker now. I’ve held a CEO position at one of the fastest growing CPA Networks in the world and recently I’ve gone into Public Speaking and Seminars.

So when I say a lot of entrepreneurs have gotten their starts from affiliate marketing, we won’t have to speculate in this article. This is coming from a former to renowned affiliate at heart. For some people, affiliate marketing is still a major part of their revenue. However, for a lot of the ones I “used” to work with that did large volume, affiliate marketing taught them the marketing principles they need to build their own offers/services.

First Off The Glamour Of Affiliate Marketing…

What is affiliate marketing? Quite simply, it’s the promotion of a company’s product/service on your website in exchange of monetary fulfillment. Also, as an exchange for a cut on the visits or sales you generate.

The minute I learned I could sell other people’s shit I was hooked…

Also, affiliate marketing puts you in a great position to learn. It don’t cost much to get started, so you’ve got a low investment and you can minimize your risk while at the same time, make a name and start branding yourself. When it’s actually time to move on someday or get into a position to own your own products, you’ll have all the right skills you’ll need to get it right.

Ruck’s Tip: “Think of it as “education” from other companies. Until one day, you wake up and realize you can do it on your own. Then, you become their competitor.

Second It’s great being my own boss…

When I first got my little tingle from starting my affiliate marketing business, I remembered how awesome it felt, to finally be my own boss. What was even better, I discovered that I could learn a lot from forums and blogs on my own for free.

I remember the freedom being my own boss brought me…

I also remember when that being my boss shit didn’t go so well and I got lazy…

It is great to be your own boss, however, with any type of “incentive” we as humans, are programmed to just go the extreme with everything. That’s what I did in my affiliate marketing business. Once I reached $10K a day which sometimes came in the afternoon, I would just go watch movies or play xbox. Fucking laziness. It really is one of the 7 deadly sins I tell ya.

Third Expanding Your Horizons Is Cool

Once you become successful with affiliate marketing and start managing your income properly, you’re going to start broadening your horizons and researching other opportunities. You know how I know?

Again, we’re programmed…

You will either research other opportunities because your a materialistic donkey chasing the dollar.

Or…

You’re a winner and winners can’t remain on top without challenges.

Pay It Forward Thanks!
