Hi, my names Ben Fletcher, I’ve been a full time Affiliate marketer since 2012 and thanks for visiting my blog!
In 2012 I set 2 goals:
- Quit my job.
- Earning $2,000 a month within 6 month’s.
I achieved the first goal and missed the 2nd by about $250 bucks.
6 months after that, I had replaced my income to almost double what I was earning as a car mechanic.
I’m also almost completely deaf and I wear 2 hearing aids, so once I quit my job, my back was against the wall because I was severely limited by job options if my venture into Affiliate Marketing failed.
I wouldn’t be able to do anything phone orientated, this rules out most office jobs, most sales jobs and virtually all customer centric job roles.
Being a deaf guy, I wouldn’t have got past the intitial interview stage.
So affiliate marketing literally came to my rescue.
I assume that you’re here because you also want to venture into affiliate marketing or blogging.
My start in affiliate marketing came when I began promoting a bodybuilding product on an affiliate network called Clickbank.
This was a product that:
- Wasn’t mine
- I didn’t create it
- I’d never met the product creator
- I didn’t have to deal with customers at all
Affiliate marketing was a glove fit for me, because I could do it from home with no face to face customer contact and almost no overhead costs.
As you can see from my pictures on this website, I’m no Adonis.
I eat pizza, I like Jaffa Cakes and I drink Beer.
But I’ve still made a full time income mainly in the fitness markets as an affiliate for the past 8 years (at the time of writing this post).
I’ve successfully made money in the following Niche Markets:
- Weight Loss
- Aesthetic Bodybuilding (very Niche)
Using both free and paid (Pay Per Click or PPC for short) traffic methods.
I’m guessing if you’re coming from a similar place that I did, you will likely:
- have a job at the moment.
- You’re sick of that job
- You want to get out of that job
- You want a bit more money
- You want more freedom in your life
- Get bills paid and provide for your family…
I’ve also got another passion, which is motocross racing.
I love motocross racing.
I’ve travelled Europe with my bikes in tow and visited places like Budapest – Hungary, Utrecht – Netherlands, Prague – Czech Republic & Krakow – Poland.
In my former job as a car mechanic, I would never have had the freedom I have now to pursue my hobbies, this is exactly what Affiliate Marketing has enabled me to do.
So, with that being said, read what I’ve written here about the TRUTH about Affiliate Marketing and making money online.
