Hi my name is George, I’m an Affiliate Marketer and it’s nice to meet you all 🙂
I decided to update my About Me page as quite a lot has happened since its creation.
I originally made this website with one important goal in mind, to teach others how to ethically make money online with the power house that is Affiliate Marketing.
Thankfully after getting some of your comments and messages I’d like to think I’ve managed to help quite a few of you already which makes me happy ^^
That’s something I want to keep on doing while at the same time continue learning and reflecting on how I can also do better myself.
When I first created AMK, I also made a couple of other successful websites where I discussed my thoughts, gave honest feedback and would review different products and services after doing in-depth and thorough research.
So I will be trying something new and not only provide guides and helpful content for Affiliate Marketing but also show you live examples of it happening and how it works by reviewing different products and services here on AMK.
One of the most important things I have learned since I became an Affiliate Marketer that will always stand out is; the best way to gain followers, readers, respect, or trust and become successful in the online world is to simply create honest content that actually helps people.
Never sacrifice your integrity for a quick buck. For example I only recommenced a product or service to my readers if I am absolutely certain it is of a high standard that will help them meet their needs.
It would be pointless to suggest to your readers a product or service that is more expensive but of a lesser quality just to make a higher profit, because if they end up unhappy then you get a bad reputation and trust is everything!
Do your research and give genuine pros and cons for each so your readers can make an informed decision.
I’m also happy to share that as per request I have almost finished putting together one of the most comprehensive lists out there of all kinds of free and useful links and resources of the software, tools and valuable information that has greatly helped me along the way and I will update my About Me once more after the finishing touches 🙂
I wasn’t always as savvy with Affiliate Marketing as I am now and the journey was both challenging and rewarding.
People say money doesn’t buy happiness, and as much as I want to have a happy and healthy life it’s hard to have that if you can’t even put food on the table.
The hard truth is that many of our struggles and sad times in life are caused by financial difficulties. Yes money isn’t everything but financial stability is important.
We all have our struggles (gods know I’ve had mine) and it’s not always fair, but that doesn’t mean we should give up.
Prior to this for many years I was working full time barely able to pay the bills let alone save up some money for the future.
I’ve had jobs in manual labour, I have been a Cashier at William Hill, and even a Financial Advisor at TSB bank, but none of them gave me the happiness and freedom I was looking for. After losing some loved ones I had to take a step back and evaluate life.
I realised that I wanted to do something more than just work myself to death and set out on a mission to find out how.
So I spent whatever free time I had researching how it can be done and needless to say… I had my ups and downs.
I tried many websites and products that assured they could help me make money “effortlessly”, from paid online surveys, to online market trading and so much more.
Most, but not all websites like that are scams and fail to deliver on their promises, especially if they guaranteed income. It left me discouraged and frustrated but I refused to give up!
I had a couple sites running, but I wasn’t getting anywhere near the results I needed for it to be life changing.
It took me a while before I finally found the right places, the right training, and the right people to set me on my path to taking control of my life.
One of the biggest turning points was discovering Wealthy Affiliate which is where I learned much of what I know today.
Similar to a school it offers simple and comprehensive training with a huge community full of like-minded individuals looking to progress in the online world as well as established Internet Marketers and online entrepreneurs.
Best of all it’s completely free and doesn’t hype up its promises like other websites and products do.
All it took was my name, an email and I had access to an abundance of text and video training materials.
With the help and support of the amazing community there, I put in the effort, made use of the resources and I took action on what I learned.
You’re looking at it.
Learning to create websites like this allowed me to work from anywhere in the world at the hours that suit me as long as I had an internet connection.
I’m able to continue to grow both my business and myself while also making more money than I would have working for someone else.
Most importantly though (to me at least) I can focus on happiness. I can spend time with my family and friends without financial stresses weighing me down.
I can give you the tools and the knowledge you need to succeed but it is ultimately down to you to make use of them and take action on what you learn.
Building your own online business won’t happen overnight. It takes dedication, consistency and hard work but all you need to do is to try!
Keep working towards your goals and there will be absolutely nothing that can stop you from finding success and achieving your dreams!
It’s great to meet you all and feel free to contact me if you ever need anything. Drop me a comment below or you can always get in touch with me over at WealthyAffiliate
