Previous 30 Day Challenges
2. Daily Gratitude
3. Drink More Water
I’m about to wrap up last month’s 30-day challenge: drinking more water. I’ve never drunk more water in a single month than I did during this one.
It takes a special kind of person to become skilled at affiliate marketing.
We’re not specialists. In order to succeed, we have to become experts in multiple areas. Almost all of us start off solo, and we’re forced to wear different hats. As an affiliate marketer, you have to create ads, manage your money, negotiate with people, manage your team, and solve one problem after another.
There’s a term in business called “T-Shaped” skills. It means to be an expert in a single field, while having a broad knowledge of several other disciplines.
I just finished writing version 1 of my guide to Voluum.com. I’ve been using it for a few months now and believe it’s the best affiliate tracker ever created. This is a must if you run any mobile traffic.
I’m currently working on expanding it to cover more material such as split-testing, analyzing data, and more.
I had no idea how to write ads when I first started, let alone good headline formulas.
My understanding of copywriting was basic, and I was pretty much copying my competitors’ writing.
This didn’t work out well because I have created duplicate headlines, which were competing against the existing headlines (sorry, guys).
I was at Barnes & Noble one day browsing through the magazine section. I figured I would look at magazines for inspiration since they use professional copywriters.
There’s one huge moment in every affiliate’s career. It’s the moment you decide to leave your job and become a full-time affiliate marketer.
No more steady paycheck every two weeks. Your destiny is now in your hands.
People ask me all the time, “Hey, Charles! When should I quit my job?”
Some people literally want me to make the decision for them.
There’s no proper formula. What I have to offer is my own experiences and what I’ve seen worked for others.
I started playing poker around a decade ago in college.
All I knew back then is that I wanted to be rich one day and getting a normal job wasn’t the path. Unfortunately there’s not plenty of opportunities for a 19 year old to get rich, and I didn’t know about internet marketing. The poker boom was in full effect and it seemed as if every Asian guy I knew was trying out poker. I figured I’d give it a shot since I’m good at math.
It’s easy to get attracted to the poker lifestyle. You could play at home and make tons of money. I watched all the TV shows and it seemed every poker pro was living a baller lifestyle. There was also this level of manly respect you can earn if you’re good at poker. There’s nothing like the high you can get when you’re on a winning streak.
