I began affiliate marketing sometime in April 2018. When I started I knew nothing about affiliate marketing or online marketing.
I saw this video on you-tube with Keala Kanae and he was talking about AWOL Academy and how this could change my life.
I was intrigued so I signed up. In the beginning, I did not know one thing about this type of marketing. I did not know what a landing page was, I did not know how to drive traffic, and I certainly did not know what tracking meant.
I bought the first package and began my training. The training did not really explain how to make money, it just told me that I needed to purchase a domain, a landing page platform, tracking etc… This in addition to all the training that I had to buy from AWOL.
In December, I saw Russell Brunson talk about Click Funnels and how they were the future of online marketing. For $297 per month you get all they had to teach you how to make money with online marketing.
They had a deal for $997 for six months which was half the price, so I took a chance hoping to learn how to make money with online marketing.
During that six months I tried different platforms such as Kartra, Builderall and a bunch of others. I was finally learning how to build landing pages but I still did not really know how I was going to make money online.
When I started with Builderall I was skeptical because they were only charging $49 per month and this included everything you needed to be successful with online marketing. All the training, landing pages, email marketing, email automation, webinars etc…
How could a platform this size only be charging $49 per month. But the longer I stayed with them, the more I realized that this was for real. I finally found a platform that actually delivered what they promised.
I was learning a lot but continued to search for more marketing training. Every day, I would get email after email of the shiny products that offered something for nothing and of course I bought most of them.
During this buying spree, I did happen to purchase some real good products. One of which is by Michael Cheney of the Commission Machine. Cheney explained how to make money promoting products on JV Zoo, Warrior Plus, Muncheye and JV Notify Pro.
My last and final smart purchase was Wealthy Affiliate. Wealthy Affiliate is teaching me everything else that I did not know about WordPress and building your own website and blog.
Getting the premium membership was one of the smartest decisions I made because the level of training I am getting from them is second to none. Wealthy Affiliate is by far my smartest purchase.
So Let’s recap what I have in my portfolio of smart purchases:
1. Builderall Platform
2. Wealthy Affiliate
3. Commission Machine/ and Commissionology with Michael Cheney.
4. Instabuilder (a word press plugin that makes fantastic landing pages)
5. IDPLR Gold Membership (hundreds of products, videos, etc to give away for free)
6. Aweber, Mail Chimp, Click Magic
7. Thrive Themes and Elegant Themes (both for word press websites)
8. Camtasia (the absolute best video editing software)
9. Snagit (a tool to copy any web page)
This is just a short list of the best products I have. I would suggest getting them because it will help you in your marketing business.
