About My Story
My journey into affiliate marketing began over eight years ago. I was heavy into debt, and I was looking for a way to ease my overwhelming debt payments by making some money on the side.
In my pursuit to become debt free, I was reading some John Cummuta reviews on Amazon for his book called ”Transforming Debt Into Wealth“.
In his book, he offered several ways to get rid of debt, one of which was affiliate marketing.
When I read that chapter, I put the book down and started looking into affiliate marketing.
I was so intrigued by the idea that I could steer people to a merchant’s site and make a commission if they purchased anything.
Compared to Multilevel Marketing (MLM), this was something I felt good about because I did not have to go door to door or try to convince friends and family to come to a meeting in a hotel.
I thought this was going to be easy…Wrong!!!
I did what most beginner affiliate marketers did, spend a boatload of money on programs and tools that promised to make me a fortune.
Unfortunately, all I did was make those who made these enticing offers wealthy at my expense.
I was ready to give up when I came across, what I believe, is the best affiliate marketing program for beginners.
