Journal Entry Number One – I’m A Newbie Again
Recently I became affiliate manager for a company called Job Crusher, (AKA Crusher Productions), (AKA Eric Louviere and Bill McIntosh).
So first off, those reading who may not know what an affiliate manager is, we are responsible for recruiting other marketers to promote our products as well as finding products to promote as an affiliate ourselves. This is now my new full time gig. In addition to my other full time gigs.
Job Crusher was founded in 2006 when my friend, partner and mentor Eric Louviere registered the domain name. He has been a full-time Internet marketer ever since, made a lot of money online and turned the company into a powerhouse. Bill McIntosh came into the picture a short time ago and has been his partner ever since.
The company has outgrown Eric and Bill’s ability to manage all the many things and work on recruiting affiliates. So in order to take the company to the next level, they knew they needed someone to take this job over. So they recruited me to run the affiliate program.
Of course this is a huge honor for me as well and huge challenge. I have been in the Internet Marketing world for many years now. I run a successful off-line consulting business as well selling my own products online. I’m able to make a full-time living at this. However the affiliate manager position is a whole new thing for me.
I’ve dealt with affiliates on a very small scale. But never on this level. It’s fun, exciting and a new challenge. And I love a challenge!
As I get to put on the ‘white belt’ again and be a newbie, I thought I would keep a diary here on my blog. Thought it might help others to share what I go through as an affiliate manager for one of the top companies in the Internet marketing niche.
One of the things that I love to do more than anything else is to teach and help people. I’ve been that way ever since I was a little kid. I just enjoy teaching.
For many years I taught martial arts. Even owned my own school. I still do teach it when the chance arises.
For whatever reason I get a lot of personal satisfaction from teaching and helping others. No doubt this is why many people get into Internet Marketing themselves. Maybe you got into it for this very reason. I know every time I learn something new, I just cannot resist the urge to teach it. Which probably has a lot to do why I create information products so much.
Anyway, just a quick post today to update everyone on my new position with Job Crusher. And to let you know I will be posting every now and then to share what’s happening, what I learn and just any old insights that might pop into my head.
And if you’ve got an info product in the IM niche, please reach out to me.
