Hi everyone, my name is Benjamin Yong and I’m an internet marketer from Malaysia who has been making money online with affiliate marketing since 2010. Knowing the fact that affiliate marketing is such a lucrative business but most people are still unaware of it, I decided to launch this blog and offer some tips and guides on helping you to get started on making money with affiliate marketing just like me.
How i got started
I’m a guy who has been looking for ways to earn more money since college. I have been working part time since high school and I told myself that once I graduate from university, I would not want to work for anyone else, living in a robot-like 9-5 lifestyle. That’s just not what I want.
After I graduated from university, I involved myself in some multi-level marketing schemes that I believed which can make me rich, but they all failed me. It was not until May 2010 and through a friend, I discovered a career that really changed my life – internet marketing.
Without any mentoring, I started learning internet marketing from scratch – I googled everything I could which are internet marketing related. On and off I invested about $5000 (RM15,000) in it. Owing to Asian’s conservative mindset – that all money related stuff online are scam, I received no support at all, from the friends around me, even my own family members. I, however, did not give up and I believe that I can achieve something in this business.
My life remains unchanged until October 2011. At that point I’ve invested almost all my savings onto paid advertising without positive return. I left only 3 figures of savings in my bank account. It was so stressful. I knew I must launch some profitable campaigns or else, my life would end up being miserable. So I gave it my last shot. I rang up my Affiliate Manager, obtained one dating offer from her, and I set up a campaign on Facebook…
Boom… That campaign exploded!
I must say it was the most exciting moment I’ve experienced in my life. My campaigns were giving me as high as 300% ROI, just imagine every 10 seconds I refresh my affiliate network dashboard, I could see a $10+ increment on my earnings…
The whole campaign lasted for 2 months and it netted me about $10,000 (RM30,000). And I knew after all, that all these shit really work! Till then I focused fully on internet marketing and made it my life-long career.
Currently I’m generating leads and sales to advertisers with Facebook Ads and Google Ads and I just love this job. It allows me to work anytime anywhere, and whenever I want.
