I’ve shared that I started a business at the beginning of the year.
At first I thought I was just going to do affiliated marketing, I took the “$7 course”, and got an insight as to how the process works. I did get very frustrated because 4 or 5 days in, I quickly realized that to get “more training”, I would have to buy a $2500 upsell.
Well, that wasn’t going to work. I started this business because I had no extra money, and was going to get myself out from under the thumb of the government. (I am allotted $976 to live off of from SSDI). I didn’t have an extra twenty five hundred laying around.
I finished the course, and then started doing some research. Found a couple of legit people on YT and learned how to build a funnel. Yes, there were affiliate links within the tutorial, but I didn’t feel like I was being scammed or had some sales-y crap being pushed on me.
Did a bunch more research on what kind of tone I wanted with my business, and how it was going to work. I realized again, that I saw a lot of how I DIDN’T want to run my business.
Got in touch with a great guy who gave me a lot of insight, and whenever I have more technical quesitons, I can ask him and he’s always helpful. Kept posting content, but things seemed to be pivoting. I was getting a lot of questions as to the hows and whys and small details about more of the backend issues.
I tried and failed, then tried again over and over until I figured out the hickups that I was experiencing on my own site… techy things like code and head and footer, and where to put it. That was a pain in my butt, BUT, I learned a lot.
Then again, I pivoted…got in touch with an awesome mentor who offered me her knowledge. I instantly got more insight on how I want my business to be.
I want to always share authentic things, that mean something to me, I want to give no BS information about the ins and outs of affiliate marketing. Because from what I’ve seen, there’s a lot of misinformation out there. I’ll get into that in a later post, it’s long and detailed.
So, I’m now transitioning into how I can teach people what I’ve learned. The hustles that work, and what I have actually done. I’m now in the beginning stages of creating my own course. Still have no idea how that works 😂 but that’s part of the journey.
I do a lot, and found out that there’s more than one way to make money online… and if a person can show/teach more than a single option, then that’s better, in my opinion.
