Hi, I’m Charles Ngo

I’m the foremost thought leader in an industry called affiliate marketing. Over 75,000+ people a month read my insights on affiliate marketing, internet marketing, and productivity.

Affiliate marketing is my life – I’ve been doing this for the past 9 years and I’ve done very well from this industry.

How did I do it?

Charles in High School

I was an average student at high school and in my marketing classes at Georgia Tech. Video games were my only passion – StarCraft anyone?

I started a few small businesses on eBay, blogging, SEO sites, but NOTHING stuck. Plus, you know how much work it is listing things on eBay and packing, shipping, labelling etc!

Most of my friends had their life sorted. They all seemed happy and went into investment banking, Big 4, tech companies etc… But I was 100% clueless about my future.

I wanted to make a lot of money – that’s the only thing I knew for sure. So I applied for a TON of jobs. Any industry where I thought I could make good money, I applied to. I FINALLY landed a job doing Adwords for a big company – success!

Well, no actually… At the company I worked for they focused on mainly brand marketing, so it wasn’t really about ROI or performance marketing… In fact it wasn’t very interesting at all. The job wasn’t BAD as far as jobs go, but I wanted more. I spent 2+ hours commuting every single day, and I was only making about $40k per year. But I had one burning question in my mind…

“How was I going to be the Asian James Bond with a few weeks holiday a year and a crap salary?”

I think EVERYONE gets the feeling that they want to make more money and have more freedom, but I wanted it so badly that I was ready to spend the rest of my life figuring out how to achieve this lifestyle.

Life for me changed from “guy in cubicle job kinda chilling” to “Will Smith in The Pursuit of Happiness” within a few weeks of landing that first job out of college…

Charles' recommended books
  • I got out every single book I could find about making more money
  • I read business blogs and articles on my lunch breaks
  • Every night I’d stay up listening to audiobooks and talks about business

Fast forward a month or two, and I found The Four Hour Work Week which set me on the path of starting an online business.

(This is the time I tried to make some cash on eBay and doing blog/SEO sites).

After one too many late nights reading blogs, I learned about affiliate marketing.

This was a game changer for me.

Not having to hold inventory, no product development, no staff, work from anywhere?

Hell yes!

I didn’t get much sleep that night…

I was pretty much working two jobs from that day forward: employed PPC guy by day, affiliate marketer by night.

You can read about my early beginnings in more detail in the Rise of Ngo here (this is one of the most popular posts on my site).

After learning about affiliate marketing I dove in head first and signed up for some traffic sources and affiliate networks.

Note from 2017 Charles: Notice a pattern here? Even though 2008 Charles is broke, has a massive student loan, a full-time job and a 2 hour commute every day he KEEPS MOVING FORWARD.

He doesn’t waste days, weeks, months and years reading – he hustles and takes action. You NEED this personality trait in this industry. Read Think and Grow Rich to acquire this mindset.

Back to 2008 Charles

I lost a ton of money running different campaigns (about $4k), but one of my campaigns I was testing hit. It hit so hard I thought there was an error with the network.

$100 spend, $500 revenue on the first day.

$350 spend the next day, $1,750 revenue the next day.

… This campaign ended up making me about $75,000 USD profit.

The rest is history, and now I routinely do $1m + profit per year.

The truth is though, as soon as I made my first single $1 from affiliate marketing, I knew this was going to be my life.

I just needed proof that this could work.

That first $1 is the most important dollar you will ever make online.

So How Can I Help You?

I can teach you how to make a LOT of money through affiliate marketing. Saving $20 per week by packing your own lunches is not my style. I want to show you how to build not just a profitable business, but a set of skills that is worth millions over your career.

I’ve gotta warn you now though, I don’t muck around.

I work hard, and if you want to make this business work, you’ll have to work hard too.

That’s the cool thing about this business though…

If you took all of my campaigns, traffic sources and offers away today, I’d be making 5 figures profit again within a week. Affiliate marketing is one of the most potent skill sets you can have in this age.

People who can drive sales/leads are becoming the 21st century equivalent of oil barons.
