I’ve done alot of product reviews on this blog, but this is going to be more of a pitch than a review. In other words, I’m simply telling you about a product that I’m recommending at this time 🙂
My first taste of affiliate marketing was in the year 2000, when I became an affiliate of Cognigen Networks, who were pioneers in online marketing.
It was a valuable experience, because I learned quite a bit about how Internet marketing works, but I didn’t make any money from it.
Over the next few years, I succeeded in some other ways of generating income online, but it wasn’t until 2004 that I earned my first real affiliate commission check.
You see, in 2004 I purchased a product on ClickBank (my first ClickBank purchase!) called Google Cash.
It was an ebook written by a guy named Chris Carpenter. He had a compelling story about how he discovered a way of affiliate marketing on Google AdWords, and generating income without any website. This method had quickly given him financial freedom, and allowed him and his family to live the “surfer lifestyle”.
I wanted in.
Not just for the money, but also so I could live life on “my own terms”.
I implemented the method from his ebook, and…. it WORKED!
I’ll never forget the vacation to Europe I took with my wife in 2005. It was halfway through the vacation that I finally found a spot to get online and check my stats.
It was an incredible feeling to see that my ad campaigns had been earning over $500 a day, on autopilot, WHILE I was on vacation.
It was more than enough to pay for the vacation. Here I was… on vacation, not working… yet still bringing in a full time income. I would say that was my first taste of financial freedom. I was living the lifestyle that Chris Carpenter had inspired me and so many others to pursue.
That business model lasted a number of years, but then came the Google “Slaps” and Quality Scores, and eventually they made it nearly impossible to promote products as an affiliate on AdWords.
Fortunately, I had always expected such a day would come, and I had built my business in a way that I was no longer dependent on Google (this is the long term strategy that I teach in my lessons).
However, it’s hard not to get a little nostalgic when I think back to the “good old days” of Internet marketing. How nice it was to be able to throw a couple of affiliate links up on Google and see the commissions start coming in!
Well I’ve got some great news for you…
Google Cash is BACK… Minus Google.
Chris Carpenter has turned his back on Google, and has embraced the new Microsoft/Facebook partnership. He’s been perfecting his methods on this new platform, and it’s totally working. Even DIRECT affiliate linking!
It’s like it’s 2004 all over again 🙂
In case you’re not familiar with “direct linking”, it basically means you can make money as an affiliate…
Now don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying you should avoid building a website, or a subscriber list. I’m just saying that it’s possible to get started and make money without them.
Chris has revealed the method in a free video presentation:
As you can pretty well guess, he’s also offering a paid course which goes into more depth to show you the detailed specifics and step-by-step instructions.
I do recommend the course. How could I not? This guy got me started in affiliate marketing, and he’s doing it all over again for you today.
I have no idea how long this window of opportunity will be open. My best educated guess is that it will be a few years, like it was with Google.
Therefore I recommend jumping on it right away, so you can cash in while it’s working!
