How?What?When?Where?Why? Who? Profile

Share love!

Hey there!

My aim and mission of this post is to create discussion! I want to get some feedback and create a case study to display how many different paths we have and how many different methods people used to get into IM, but I don’t want the usual two word answers; “the money”, “the freedom” , “Suggested by so and so”, “Google”

I want to hear some proper feedback about How you got into IM, What brought you here, When you got into IM, Where you want to go in the future, Why you chose IM and somebody who inspires you or you look upto in the industry. You don’t have to write me an essay or a 10 page booklet butmaybe a paragraph for each section. You can comment on the post or E-mail it to us via our “contact us” page, it’s upto you!


So here is my little profile:


I got into IM almost 2 years ago via freelancing. I was a writer for sites such as iWritter, I published a few kindle books, I did a few from Warrior Forum and Fiver. I got into the CPA and Affiliate marketing side when I met KJ. He told me he had been playing around in the industry for almost a year and I was intrigued to see what it was all about and how he does it. So we had a few coaching sessions and I shadowed hi ma few times, then I got hooked, I found peace in having the freedom to work when I wanted, to almost own my own work life. So I started affiliate marketing later that very year (2010). So I guess I got into the industry through Mr KjRocker himself.


I started serious IM in early 2011, I started signing up with networks and taking affiliate marketing seriously, I started shadowing KJ more and such stuff. My writing skills really helped in going from just freelancing to affiliate marketing, I have always had a passion for writing since I was a child and now earning and doing it on a daily basis is something I enjoy because it allows me to expand my knowledge.


In the future I hope to work in the psychology field, but keeping IM as a back up plan, I know many IMers who do it full time, I admire their patience and dedication, and although I posses those skills, I want to explore things more. However IM is something that I can see myself doing as a hobby in the future, the social side, skills development and the vast experience and opportunities it gives is something that one should never let go off.


So thats a VAGUE-SIH profile from me…


Now let’s get some proper feedback from you guys!! I will be running a feature on this topic soon….. SO KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR YOUR PROFILES!




  1. This is really cool idea! So let me start.

    How? I started a little shop on eBay, on which my listings dominated first positions almost all xmas period. That was good time. But after my competition discovered what i was doing there, they ran me over with more money and destroyed the prices totally. But i saw that there is possibility to make lots of money from your own computer, just needed bigger budget to play with and to be able to compete.

    What brought me here? Lots of reading and research. Well CPA isn’t easy and it is lots of work around it, but you can start with very little budget and that is what brought me here. Start up costs.

    Time is money of course and more money you have the more your time grows on value, but if you are just starting out, you have to accept the fact that you will have to spend a lot of it until you become earner.
    Once you got money you can pay experts to teach you what to do and how to do, instead of purchasing 400 page manual and a highlighter.

    When? I started research and bit of work since May 2012 since I was lucky to meet Mahmoud Selman via warrior forum and he was so good to me to spend countless hrs chatting to help me to understand what I have to become inside my own head to succeed. Stuff like you cannot treat it as hit and run business or fact that noone will spoon feed you here. That you have to be good in all the ways. Thru him I met KJ too.

    Why? Well 2 reasons. People who work in this industry are similar to my own thinking. Hard working, studying, helping each other, all fighters and dreamers.
    So i am not only thinking of going to work and working but also going to a club of people for a good chat. Beats partying or horsing around all days. Not that i do not like a wild party once a while.

    Second is bcs it fits the plans i prepared for myself for future. Which you cannot achieve from your office desk jobs. (or so on.)

    Where I want to go? I want to be a helper of community and especially help people to learn and be healthy, children especially. They are future.
    So investing time and money in schools or hospitals is the way for me.
    Besides, one of the successful people i love to read about, said that nothing ever gives you such a joy and satisfaction as giving back and helping others. Sounds good to me.

    My inspirations in this industry? I got two . Mahmoud Selman and KJ. They gave me the way, tools and strength to fight the period of failures.

    I am not there yet, but will we ever be? Maybe that is what makes all of us never want to stop in what we do. The fact that every achievement brings new challenges and it is a never ending story. lol

    Ok, who is next? πŸ˜€

  2. Here we go…

    I started selling books on kindle, just short stories and some life related ones and some religion and business development ones… I never thought I would make anything but got a great sideline earning in my first few months. Then I was approached by a fellow peer who said that I should start affiliate marketing (Because I had done a short course in Marketing at my local college once). I only did it for credits, never thought it would actually be useful because I didn’t like the marketing side to business, but it did! I joined a few networks and eventually started my own little thing in promoting weight loss products for many different networks and companies, I am slowly bulding my own little empire, it is merely a little bungalow yet πŸ™‚
    What brought me here?
    Well apart from a peer, lots of research and kensters six figure alliance was a great help, the course taught me lots. I have also read lots of aritcles and blogsl ike KJz and really been inspired how life changing IM has been, so they keep me going, especially kjz “ZERO TO DUBAI” .. an amazing achievement there dear. I also read somethign about how IM has helped a Struggling Student” Late last year. All this stuff keeps me going and brought me closer to have more passion in my IM work.
    I started publishing kindle books almost 2years ago but got serious in affiliate marketing and such just early last year, so I am still learning!
    Well I don;t have the typical ‘I wanted to escape a normal job’ excuse… I just wanted a bit on the side and something to come home to, I lost my partner last year and I am a person who has to be active, doing something, and coming hoem to my IM was like a let out for me…………
    Where I want to go?
    I hope to continue my IM work and one day own my own little empire, I want to turn to it full time one day, out of pure passion, I am currently a business development consultant but I want to concentrate on one thing and the online work is something that appeals and makes me feel good in what I do. I feel I am supporting the change in technology.
