Video Snippet: What Mark Ling Says About Affiliate Marketing
Mark Ling, Affiliate Marketer Extraordinaire
Once upon a time, there was a New Zealander called Mark Ling. While a student at college, he lived quite a hard-up life, but he had big dreams.
When he left college and entered the working world, he couldn't quite settle himself into that life and was always on the look-out for a better way to earn money. Naturally, he turned to the internet for inspiration (but of course, where else!). Eventually, after much searching and researching, he discovered ...
... affiliate marketing.
From the onset, Mark seemed to have the knack for affiliate marketing. He started to earn lots of money, thousands of dollars a week, and he was on top of the world. However, the inevitable (when it comes to Google that is) happened; he got slapped by Google, his income plummeted, and he spiralled down into massive debt.
Mark gave up it then. He quit affiliate marketing and took a day job. Now, top-earning affiliate marketers will certainly know what happened next. You see, when once one has had the chance to taste the good life with affiliate marketing (it can be quite addictive actually because it’s a fun ‘job’), one is quite reluctant to completely let it go.
Mark of course wasn’t happy doing the nine-to-five lifestyle, so he decided to give affiliate marketing one more try. He revamped his strategies online, worked hard and was quite determined to succeed this time around come hell or high water. Well, he did, and, needless to say, promptly quit his day job.
Fast forward to today and Mark is now a multi-millionaire affiliate marketer who is finally living his dream life.
Fortunately for us, Mark’s story doesn’t end there. Branching off from his determination to succeed in affiliate marketing (which isn’t slowing down any time soon despite his sucess), was the same determination also, as well as a strong desire, to help others realize the same dream of earning a substantial passive income online. The logic being, if he could do it from scratch, anyone can.
To this end, Mark created Affilorama; an ‘honest-to-goodness’ affiliate marketing training portal with free membership. His intention then was to provide step-by-step video lessons (more than a hundred at last count) designed to help beginner to intermediate affiliates build successful websites, just like he does (on a daily basis no doubt!).
By the way, since it’s launch in 2006, Affilorama has acquired a membership of over 300,000 people worldwide; people who are benefitting from the program’s free introductory video lessons as well as a range of comprehensive training and tool packages.
Mark has since gone on to create other affiliate marketing-related products, but his brainchild Affilorama remains one of the most highly regarded and well-known affiliate training programs on the internet, to which other long-time top-ranking affiliate marketers gravely give their ‘nod’.
(not by a long shot!)
