They Laughed When He Started His Online Affiliate Business – But When He Started…

...there was no stopping him!

Affiliate Business Internet Marketing Online

This is true for many members that signed on to one of the best affiliate marketing training sites on the internet.

One of those awesome success stories is from Jerry.

Even though he was an "A" student he decided to drop out of college and concentrate all his energy on an online affiliate marketing business.

His parents and peers thought he was crazy to give up a traditional education.

Jerry was accepted to the top  University in Asia in a very competitive course of "Information Systems".  

He decided to drop out before the term even started.

His online affiliate business started with a similar story to mine.

He was roaming the internet while preparing for an exam when he came across a YouTube Ad.

The YouTube video was showing a guy on a cruise ship explaining how he makes money even while he is on a cruise.

Jerry decided to jump on board and signed up to the program that guy in the video was promoting. 

Unfortunately that program ended up being a pyramid type scheme with big ticket up-sells that could cost as much as $30000.

He Failed Coming Out Of The Gate

He lost money on that program before he decided to get out of it.

His story was similar to mine and many other people trying to figure out how people really can make money online without SCAMMING others in the process.

Jerry didn't give up. He continued his search for the answer on how to make passive income online.

He finally came to a turning point in his search when he came across a program that was FREE to sign up.

He could try it out for free as long as he wanted and they provided beginners training and two free websites to practice.

He didn't need to provide any credit or personal information other than his email address.

There was no risk, so he signed up HERE.

Jerry followed the step-by-step  training and worked hard to understand as much he could to achieve his 4-figure monthly passive income goal within a few months.

It is important to note that there is no magic or secret sauce needed to make money online.

Jerry had to work hard to meet his goal but he was able to work smart. There is much more details you need to learn that I am not able to describe in this short blog. 

Jerry also took advantage of that program's Premium membership that equates to cost him about $0.82 / day.

He basically figured out how to use a few hours and $0.82 per day to make over $6000 per month.

That goal was met within 8 months from the day he started!

Now I wish I can say I made those goals as quickly as he did but I haven't worked as hard at my online business like Jerry has.

It all comes down to how much you need and want to make your business succeed.

Great advice!! Your story telling is awesome, I related so much to this.

My journey in affiliate marketing has been fairly similar. I got the bug for it, realized the potential, but while I was still naive I fell for way to many scams before I finally made it to Wealthy Affiliate, and got a proper education. The potential that there is on the internet is amazing, and even though there’s a lot of competition, hard work really does pay off, especially when you’re consistent about it.

Thanks for the tips my friend!

    The potential for a successful online business is better than ever now just because of the sheer volume of people online, with Billions of searches every month you only need a tiny, tiny percentage of that traffic.

What a great article.  It was so nice of you to speak so highly of who I consider to be one of the most inspiring and intriguing member of Wealthy Affiliate.  You have hit the nail on the head about everything you said on this article.

Anyone can be just as successful if they are willing to put in the time and effort.  Not everyone will get there in 8 months but everyone can get there in the time they want by determining what they put in to get something out.

Once again I absolutely loved reading this article about a great inspiration from a great affiliate company.

    Right on Dale! 

    If you follow the training at Wealthy Affiliate you can get the traffic and conversions needed to create a successful online business.

Your website is very well done, and I do like the Wealthy Affiliate platform that was presented. It not only provides good info on affiliate marketing, but it presents a wonderful option for hosting and website building. I use it for my blog, which highlights my latest offline venture, which involves writing a book about a family-friendly TV program. I wish you well in your coaching opportunities.


    Paul - December 18, 2018

    Thanks, Randy,

    I wish you the best of success on your offline venture.
