My Internet Marketing Journey
My internet marketing journey began back in 2008 at 21 years old when I was working in a telesales job that I hated while studying to be a personal trainer and nutritionist part time. I quickly realized that telesales is one of the worst jobs in the world and personal training really doesn't pay very well so I found myself stuck between a rock and a hard place.
I had spent time and money pursuing a career in the fitness industry but the pay and hours were terrible. So I had to make a career change and had to make one fast. It was then that I started searching online for work and business opportunities in my spare time. I came across everything from pyramid schemes to just outright scams.
I then bought into a system which taught very basic article marketing and believe it or not I made my very first sale just 8 days after. I honestly couldn't believe it. I thought to myself “if I can make a sale after just 8 days then how much will I be able to make after 8 weeks, 8 months, 8 years?!”
Unfortunately I didn't make another sale for at least 6 months and as my hope and motivation started to fade I spent less and less time trying to make internet marketing work.
Then one day, about 8 months later, a cheque arrived in the mail for $200 from a campaign that I set up months previously. It was like someone set a fire under me. I was excited and amazed that something that I did on my laptop in my bedroom had generate me 200 big ones and I had the money in my hand to prove it.
Over the next 3 years or so I made some money here and there but it was only about $1,000 – $2,000 per year. This wasn't enough to retire on unfortunately.
The one day in 2012 I saw an advertisement to get an internet marketing coach for $397. This was quite a bit of money for me at the time so I thought it over for a few days and then finally pulled the trigger and grabbed the coaching from a guy who didn't even have a real name. His online persona was ‘Kenster'. That's it. No surname. No picture. Just ‘Kenster'.
I thought that for sure I was after throwing my money away but regardless I studied the coaching material and put everything that I learned into action.
And low and behold… it worked.
The coaching took 6 weeks to finish. 104 days after I started the coaching I dropped out of college and became a full time internet marketer. A few months later I jumped on a plane to Thailand and stayed there for 4 months while I worked on my internet marketing business.
Since then I have used my internet business to travel the world while working online. I am currently writing this blog post from the Canary Islands where I have been living for almost 18 months now.
Internet marketing changed my life and I know it can change your life for the better too.
