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 make some extra money.
In my pursuit to find a solution, I was reading a book called Transforming Debt Into Wealth by John Cummuta.
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.
