Who Am I?
I am the Ad Hustler. I live, breathe & sleep, internet advertising & business. I am passionate about affiliate marketing. It’s the only business where you can make the kind of money that people only dream of. I am a straight shooting, honest (sometimes blunt), down to earth guy who wants to share his thoughts and opinions with whoever wants to take the time to read them.
Why Am I Starting A Blog?
There are a lot of blogs out there. Especially in the affiliate marketing, internet advertising & business sectors. I am not starting this blog to start any kind of popularity contest. I want to write whats on my mind and chronicle my journeys through business and what I see going on, on the internet. I want to have something to be able to look back on when I lose focus.
Who Has Inspired Me?
Everyone has the blogs & sites they like to read and the people they respect in this industry. As a prelude to this blog I want to mention a few:
Nickycakes – Funny guy who shoots straight from the hip and doesn’t care who he offends. One of the sharpest minds Ive seen on the net.
UberAffiliate – People like to bash Uber but I used to find his blog uber helpful. Lately the gems have been overtaken by a lot of crap such as his UberCamp idea but still mad respect for this guy.
PPC-Coach – I don’t care that this is a paid service. I’ve seen too many people that were struggling with success join this service and reap huge returns.
Wickedfire – Wickedfire is the industry hub for successful affiliates. Without that forum I would DEFINETLY not be where I’m at today.
John Battelle – Read his book “The Search.” Enough said.
I’m sure i’ve left some people/sites out but it’s a blog, I’ll deal with it later.
