Being an affiliate marketer is something near and dear to my heart. My name is Brian and I love the opportunity that Affiliate Marketing gives to the average person online. I first found affiliate marketing around 2008 when I was looking for a way to help supplement my income.
Affiliate marketing has come a long way since I first started…
Almost every business online has some form of affiliate program where these companies compensate people just like you and me for referring their products and services.
You see, affiliates are the cheapest way for these companies to advertise their goods. It’s called “Word of Mouth” marketing.
This works just like when you see a good movie and tell a friend about how good it was. Or when you eat at a restaurant and have an amazing meal you decide to share with others how much you enjoyed it. The result is that your friend tries it because of your recommendation (referral). Your referrals cost the company nothing to get people to see their movie or eat at their restaurant. That’s known as organic traffic.
A Little Back Story
Growing up at the early age of around 4, I knew I wanted to be a firefighter. I’ve always had the desire to help people in their time of need.
At the age of 11, my family and I were returning from our summer vacation to Washington DC. While in Wheeling, West Virginia we were car #6 out of 11 that was struck by a semi truck in a construction zone.
You see, the traffic had stopped and they think that the driver had fallen asleep and never knew what he had hit initially. My sister, mother and I had switched seats in our Plymouth Horizon for this portion of the trip. The semi-truck struck the rear driver’s side, where I usually sat in our vehicle. However, my sister was there now and was struck in the back off the head by something in the window area. She was unconscious for approximately 2 hours after the impact. I was in the passenger’s seat and climbed out of my window to get out of the vehicle.
Next, I helped my parents out and then we started getting my sister out of the vehicle. We sat on the interstate for approximately 25 minutes waiting for an ambulance or fire department representative to arrive.
Where the accident occurred, it was predominately a volunteer service which resulted in us having to wait for help to respond from their homes and even their jobs.
During this time on the side of the interstate, I had a complete feeling of helplessness which I totally did not like…
Fast forward 3 years to when I was 14 years old…
I have lived in and around the area of Indianapolis, Indiana most of my life. My grandfather and mother took me to my first Indianapolis 500 Race. While there in the stands a bystander went into cardiac arrest and once again I was in a position of helplessness. Back in those days, CPR was not taught to everyone like it is now.
Time For A Change
At the age of 15, I had decided that I would never be helpless again and I joined the Explorer Program at the Wayne Township Volunteer Fire Department. This is a program where young adults from the age of 15 to 21 learn about the fire service and emergency medical service. I proceeded to get my Emergency Medical Technician certification and multiple Firefighter certifications during my senior year of high school.
Today, I am a Career Firefighter on an engine company and serve as a Lieutenant at my department. I’ve been a career firefighter for over 22 years and have helped more people than I can even count.
During my 22+ years in the fire service, I’ve looked for something to supplement my income since you don’t join the fire service to get rich. I found a mentor who was making a good income online through affiliate marketing and decided to pattern myself after them. They have taught me how to work towards building my “Virtual Real Estate” online.
What I love most about affiliate marketing is that it affords the average person like myself to become successful online when you apply hard work and dedication. The key is to find a system and community that truly teaches you about how to build your online business.
I Saw Others Succeeding and Got To Work
To say that I saw the potential in affiliate marketing was a complete understatement…
I knew from the beginning that if others could make money at this, then there was absolutely no reason why I could not do the same. All I had to do was to stay focused and diligent at the process while learning the concepts and skills of “Affiliate Marketing” and how to get traffic to my online real estate.
My Goal to Help Others Succeed Online
All my life I have been in the business of helping others when it comes to their time of need. Trust me when I say, it doesn’t matter what someone is going through…
The first thing they do when they need help is to pick up the phone and dial 911. I have seen and been in some very interesting situations in my career.
Naturally, after spending a few years in the Affiliate Marketing world and developing many amazing relationships with other affiliate marketers, I found that a lot of people were struggling to get a foothold on how to become successful online. They were also having trouble actually making any money.
There are way too many so-called Guru’s who honestly just want to take your money and never really teach you anything about how to actually be successful as an affiliate marketer. Trust me when I say, I’ve bought many of their crappy courses only to be even more confused after purchasing them.
That’s where I decided to focus on helping others succeed online. I’m a firm believer of the thought process of, “Help enough people get what they desire and in turn, you will grow and achieve your desires.”
I hope that my site delivers valuable content on your journey to becoming whatever you are looking to achieve…
