Why should you listen to me?

I don’t consider myself a ‘guru’ or claim to be an expert in every area of affiliate marketing.

But I have been in the affiliate marketing game full-time for well over a decade now, have learned a lot along the way and consistently earn 6+ figures in income each year from home.

If you decide to make the same journey, allowing me to be your personal guide, I will share with you everything I’ve learned to help you shorten your own path to success and start earning life-changing income. 

The truth is that I basically failed my way to success by using the throwing things against the wall approach. I don’t recommend you choose that path since it is littered with failure. Instead, on this page I will show you three proven paths to affiliate marketing success that you can implement starting today:

Three Reliable Affiliate Marketing Success Models

Path 1: Make Your Own Path

These days it’s easy to choose a niche to market in and create your own website. I have a free step-by-step guide that anyone can successfully follow even with no experience and zero technical knowledge.

Path 2: Learn With Others

This path involves joining a community of other beginners so you can learn the affiliate marketing business from one another with guidance. This is perfect for anyone who likes the group learning approach.

Path 3: Done-For-You Solution

The third path involves basically buying an online business that is already set up with a website and vendors to perform the work for you. All you do is send traffic to your turnkey website then collect your money.

Affiliate Marketing Success Models In Detail:

Path 1: Make Your Own Pathaffiliate marketing beginner image

These days it’s easy to choose a niche market and create your own website or blog even if you have no experience and zero technical knowledge. This website will allow you to place affiliate links that will pay you for any referrals you make who buy the products you choose to promote. I have put together a free step-by-step guide on this website that anyone can successfully follow.

This training is set up to get you started in affiliate marketing in one short week (or shorter if you want). The lessons are divided into seven easy-to-complete daily tasks that will keep you on track and motivated to follow it until you’re up and running. You don’t need any experience and it’s simple to follow. I will show you step-by-step how to determine which market to enter, how to choose a domain name, how to build your own website, how to generate traffic to your site and how to start making money online.

This path takes very little money to set up (just a hosting account and domain name). If you follow my lessons, you can be making money within the first 30 days from when you get started.

Path 3: Done-For-You Solution

Reseller websites are perfect for you if you want a turnkey internet marketing website that can make money for you right out of the gate – even if you have no previous online marketing experience.reseller site pro image

A reseller website is a completely done-for-you website that allows you to make money by selling products and services (you decide which niche market) directly from the website. Each one is already set up with high-quality outsourced vendors who will fulfill your orders and perform the services that you sell. You don’t even need a hosting account.

This is the shortest path to making money online since it’s literally like buying fully-operational online shop. It does require an upfront investment however, which will reward you for the time you save setting up an online business yourself.


If you have lost your job due to the Coronavirus, I know exactly what you are going through right now.

I too was laid off once through no fault of my own. In my case, it occurred because of the real estate crash of 2008 when I was employed as a mortgage broker.

In a single day I went from making a comfortable six figures per year income to exactly zero. To make matters worse, my final five figure paycheck bounced leaving me with no way to stay afloat for even a few months. The stress, anxiety and fear it caused sticks with me even today.

This may seem like the worst time to start your own online business. 

In my opinion, it’s the absolute best time to start one. It’s what I did after my own personal disaster in 2008 and it changed my life forever.

It’s your chance to take your fate and your earnings future into your own hands. You’ll never have to worry ever again about being let go by a company impacted by unforeseen circumstances. I can show you how to create and diversify your online business, using several different income streams, to make your earnings disaster proof.

But you have to get started.
