I have been, or can be if you click on a link and make a purchase, compensated via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value for writing this post. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
It’s time for a quick story… I’ve been involved in affiliate marketing since pre-2000. I made my links with BeFree, CJ, Amazon Associates program, etc. Unfortunately, I focused on all the wrong things & missed some of the golden years. However, in late 2007 I decided to get back into it, and started reading up on what’s going on in the industry. I joined some groups, a couple forums, signed up for some courses: all of which were happy to take my money & not show me how to be successful (how could they, since affiliate marketing is contantly changing, and all these people are concerned with is selling their product?).
Then I saw the Black Ink Project by Jeremy Palmer and decided to sign up. After all, it was FREE. Can’t beat that! So I joined, along with many, many others, and participated in class (with a few others – not as many participated, compared to those who joined). Jeremy walked us through chosing a niche, building a site, promoting the site, etc. On August 28, 2008 I started promoting my new website, based on the principles of the Black Ink Project. That day, I spent $5.76 and made $38.10 in revenue. The potential was there. The next day, spent $1.21 and made $14.85. Day 3, spent $1.93 and made $52.95. In the first three days, I profited exactly $97.00 (this is important – you’ll see why later). Since then, things have really taken off. I’m not going to get into details… only Jeremy, my buddy Steve and my wife know how well things are really going.
I’m still adding onto my original site, while building out a 2nd “Black Ink” website and going through the pre-planning / SWOT analysis on a third. I call them “Black Ink” websites because they follow a specific design format and the niche is chosen through a process which helps find the most profitable niches available. When you signup for the Black Ink Project, you get this information.
You’ll also find a few very active members on the forums, and who are regularly in the live chat sessions. I’ve met some great people this way, and we’re always helping each other with the various projects we’re working on.
So if you’re looking to get started with affiliate marketing, and are wondering what’s the best way to go at it, take a look at the Black Ink Project. The cost for the class today is $97, which if you recall, is my profit from the first three days of starting to promote my Black Ink website. There’s a 60-day money back guarantee on the Black Ink Project, too, although you’re not going to need it. If you follow Jeremy’s instructions, you’ll be profiting more than that pretty quickly.
If you sign up, send me an email and I’ll even help you along (but only if you promise you’re going to follow Jeremy’s advice, step-by-step). Forget what you think you know, check your ego at the door, and signup for the Black Ink Project.
Affiliate marketing isn’t difficult, it’s just a lot of hard work.
