My name is Christopher Thompson and I'm the founder of JobSlayer.net. Welcome to the site! It is my mission here at JobSlayer to take the hassle out of your search to find real opportunites for making money online.
If you are here, chances are that you are looking for ways to make money from home.
Well, I can definitely help you with that. The method that I do and recommend is affiliate marketing.
I think that affiliate marketing is a great way for anyone that wants to make money online to get started.
It can be done from anywhere that you have a computer with an internet connection and all you need are a few basic tools, but more on that later.
Let me tell you a little about me...
First of all, I am no guro nor do I have any desire to be one. I am a simple guy, A husband of twenty-six years to my wife and best friend Mechelle. We have four daughters and three grandchildren.
I became interested in starting my own business way back in the 1980's. Yes, I'm that old, so no matter your age right now, don't let it stop you from getting started.
There was a guy named Carlton Sheets that did late night infomercials selling a course on real estate investing. He talked about buying and selling single family houses and that you could make good living doing it.
I was intrigued about the concept of working for myself and put the thought in the back
of my mind, being that I was still in middle school at the time.
The idea of working for myself was revived many years later in my early twenties when my
mother-in-law invited me to a meeting at her home.
She was selling health and wellness products and wanted my wife and I to take a look at what she had to offer. I did not know it at the time, but the meeting was network marketing opportunity meeting.
This was the first time I was exposed to the MLM business model and I liked what I had seen at the time. I was very excited about the opportunity and immediately signed up as adistributor.
Big dreams of working from home began to fill my head and I was eager to sign up my first reps.
We ended up quitting the business in a few months, but we used the products for several years afterwards.
Over the next several years we joined about four different MLM companies. We had the same results with each one that we joined which was little to no income from selling products and only a couple of sign ups.
Be that as it may, I eventually manage to build a small team and generate weekly residual income in one MLM company. That small success showed me the possibilities that exists with MLM.
Unfortunatly, in less than a year, everyone on my team eventually quit. My business, along with the weekly checks, dried up.
However, in my search to discover ways to teach my team how to grow their businesses, I discovered affiliate marketing. I learned about selling digital products and placing ads to drive traffic to my offers.
I wrote my first ad promoting an eBook teaching network marketing strategies and posted it on Craigslist. I did not expect much from posting that one ad and I had never used Craigslist before so I completely forgot about it.
A couple of weeks later, I noticed extra money in my checking account and found out that someone had purchased the eBook and purchased the upsells a few days later.
I began getting excited again about working from home again. The ability to just post and ad and make hundreds of dollars from it blew me away. In the days following, I posted several more ads in Craigslist but did not make anymore sales.
Turns out that Craigslist does not like "make money from home" opportunities and they stopped showing my posts. After, being ghosted by Craigslist, I contiued to do affiliate marketing on and off.
The biggest mistake that I made when trying to build my business was not remaining focused on what I was doing. I deveopled the shiny object sydrome. Jumping from one opportunity to the next even when I made progress in some. I would find something that seemed better and would give it a try.
Hopefully, you can avoid some of the pitfalls that hindered me by remembering my mistakes. Pick one business startegy and stick with it until you master it and that's what I've done. Now my business is growing and I'm in a position to help others along the way.
