Welcome, To About me.
My Name Is Simon – This Is My Website.
I have a history working with computers dating back to the 1980`s, it has always been an interest of mine from a very young age and was fortunate enough to have access to computers in the home I grew up in, as a child I started out playing games as most kids do, to then move on to making my own games by writing code, the first game I ever made was a bit like space invaders – a classic that all gamers should remember!
Computers I Worked On!
- VIC 20.
- COMMODORE 64.
- BBC MICRO.
Along Came The P.C.
When the P.C came along we were introduced to the mouse – the new look screen – new ways of a computer`s functionality, personally I found it all a little intimidating at first but soon jumped in head first and started learning the way the p.c actually functioned, most of what I learned was a matter of trial and error and a lot of time working things out for myself.
With The P.C – Came The Internet?
I started using the internet immediately – I loved the idea of being able to search for anything I wanted via a search engine,I found eBay in its early days and started listing stuff for sale on there which was much better than listing in the local papers and awaiting a reply,I simply listed my stuff for sale on eBay and it sold itself quite easily,all left to do was packing it up and sending it off.
I got to thinking HOW are these websites actually appearing when I search for something on the internet, so I did some research on this subject and this is where I discovered – AFFILIATE MARKETING – I quickly found out I DO NOT have to have my own products to sell but can EASILY get access to thousands of other peoples/company`s products using their links and banners and make a commission on each sale I make, great ?
My Journey To Becoming An Affiliate.
First off, the only person I came across that explained how affiliate marketing works in an honest manner without the hype was a guy called jay Wessman from lazyassstoner.com – I found him on youtube, Scams !please see one of his many videos below.
NOTE:- ( some of jays techniques are now outdated but still worth the watch)
Affiliate Marketing For Dummies [IN PLAIN ENGLISH!]
Watch Out FScams!
Trust me when I say this I spent years wasting my time and money in the beginning,I found the internet was full of scams and get rich quick schemes that DO NOT work, in my experience ANY company asking for money upfront or giving you full access to the unexplained scheme they claim is going to make you money would raise the red flags for me as a scam – STAY WELL CLEAR – also,
MLM (Multi Level Marketing) where you normally have to buy into what they say is an amazing product, when the reality of it is they are making money by leading you to believe you are going to make money out of the product with all the marketing promotional materials they will give you along with your business in a box,they hold what they call seminars which are nothing but a load of PEP TALK leading you to believe what a success you will come in the near future, Money ?RUBBISH – STAY WELL CLEAR.
Never Pay Upfront For Anything That Is Suppose To MaMoney?
The Basics Of Affiliate Marketing Are Quite Simple.
You become a middle man between the buyer and the seller, for each sale you make you are paid a commission for that sale, affiliate programs are ALL free to join, A Website the MAIN REQUIREMENT of becoming an affiliate to promote these products is – YOUR OWN WEBSITE – to place products on to, please see my page Build AWebsite Each product you have as an affiliate has your unique affiliate ID embedded into the link you generate from any affiliate program you join and is very easy to do once you know how.
