Yesterday I started a 12 month mastermind with my mentor Dean Holland. I still remember the first time I heard his voice when on one of his webinars he started to explain the problems people were having in today’s affiliate marketing industry.
I had spent six or seven months researching the possibilities of “Making Money Online”.
I quickly discovered that yes it is very possible.
I signed up for a coaching program, video agency program and found my perfect affiliate product I was going to sell.
I was so excited to start making money!
But one thing in the back of my mind kept telling me this is not what I was looking for.
I am sure there are plenty of people who make money as affiliate marketers but I recognized they had thousands of followers. I had zero followers, I had no Facebook account, not a single subscriber to my email list, no website , heck I had no tech skills what so ever. I had no clue what I was even doing and when a problem came up I would’t even know who to ask to help me solve it.
I was alone in my so called business.
And that scared me!
I have had plenty of failure in my life to recognize I was on my way to another one…
You see I am currently in franchising. For anyone who may not know what franchising is, Mcdonalds is a franchise, Starbucks is a franchise, Subway is a franchise. And why do we see these franchises on every corner and street we turn down? I will tell you, they have a “Proven Pattern of Success”. Another words they have a wanted product and a system of daily operations of marketing and distributing their product to the consumer at a very high R.O.I.
I bought a franchise and I got trained on how to apply their system.
Built the building and opened the door.
Guess what happened!?
You guessed it, people just started walking through my door and started buying. I knew for a fact that was never going to happen with my online business.
But after 6 years in franchising I realized all I really owned was my own job. I worked 7 days a week, terribly long hours. I was not a very happy person. Very unsatisfied , didn’t get most weekends off and lost connection with my friends and family. Now don’t get me wrong, I have been very blessed to have this opportunity in my life and I thought I was doing the responsible thing by making sure the employees and customers were taken care of.
But I was living to work and not working to live.
This is what has lead me to affiliate marketing. But I had no proven pattern of success to follow, no real answers to the problems I was going to have. I had no tried and true system to follow.
I honestly thought that I was a complete fool for even thinking and hoping I could get on my computer and make money.
You see I knew you could make money but I quickly learned all the people making money online weren’t the affiliates, it was the people who own the product I was trying to sell basically at the expense of my time and money. They had their system of success in place.
I had no product of my own and no system in place.
Than I met my mentor and mastermind Dean Holland. He educated me on the truth about affiliate marketing in today’s online industry. I knew something was wrong with what I was doing from a business point of view with being an affiliate marketer but I just didn’t know what.
As a franchisee I had all pieces to the puzzle to make it work but as a stand alone affiliate marketer I only had a few of the pieces to the puzzle.
I now honestly feel like I have a product and a true system of success with a family feel company and mentor that will guide me through my failures, learning curves and help me do things the right way.
