I had a fun chat with Kelvin Mah in this episode. I consider Kelvin a good friend, and we have a few common interests as well – one of them being listening to loooong podcasts (watch out Joe Rogan fans). Listen to the episode here: Alternatively, if you want to listen to this episode on your preferred podcast listening app, here goes the links: iTunes Spotify Stitcher Radio Kelvin is one of the nicest guys you would come across in the internet marketing world. And, he is the perfect definition of how someone from a non tech Monday job background (he was in Finance) can join the world of internet marketing, work with fun companies and eventually starts businesses of his own in the same space. I actually did not know about Airbnb SEO before Kelvin brought it up. I always knew about Amazon SEO and it being a thing.…

So it happened again. It was inevitable. On 14th April 2020, Amazon associates received a harmless normal-looking email that changed their lives (once again). It was another commission cut from Amazon. If you are new to the affiliate marketing game, Amazon offers one of the most popular affiliate programs around the world in terms of the number of affiliates. When I joined the program back in 2016, it was decent. They had a tiered commission (the more you sold, the higher you made per unit) and in early 2018, they did their first change. They cut commission on some categories and they also closed the tiered commission to a unit-based one. That generated a lot of anger among affiliates but everyone still stuck with it. The commission range was around 8% in some categories and averaged at around 5%. But they changed it again. This is what the latest change…

Freelancing, as an industry has contributed to more than $1 trillion USD in US economy back in 2019. People don’t ‘become a freelancer’ anymore. It is not an alternate career path that you might choose. This is a mainstream option that more and more people are getting interested in. Surprisingly, we don’t have enough so called ‘best freelancing sites’ where you can go to get a gig. Story time: I started freelancing as a teenager back in 2012. I was 19-20 years old. The opportunities were limited back then, but so was the competition. I started as a writer ($1 for every 500 words I wrote) on a site called Freelancer.com (this was the most popular one back then). After a few years, I found myself turned into a ghostwriter for eBooks ($50 for every book on average and it used to take me 7-10 days to finish each one).…

I had another SEO & Affiliate giant in this one, the mighty Matthew Woodward. I have been speaking a lot with affiliate marketers and SEOs in my podcast and there’s a clear reason behind that. I am from the same space and I know these guys better than I know the rest of the world (the other business worlds). Listen to the episode here, it is a fascinating one: Alternatively, if you want to listen to this episode on your preferred podcast listening app, here goes the links: iTunes Spotify Stitcher Radio You can find Matthew Woodward’s blog here: Matthew Woodward Let me know what you thought of the podcast in the comments.

I interviewed Craig Campbell in this one. Craig has been around for years (literally 17 years) in SEO & Internet marketing. You can listen to episode here: Alternatively, if you want to listen to this episode on your preferred podcast listening app, here goes the links: iTunes Spotify Stitcher Radio Craig was not actually on my radar till 2018. I only came to know more about him since I saw a few agencies using his courses to teach their in house SEOs. I then dug deep and wow- was I surprised. Craig is now officially the most experienced SEO that I ever known (17+ years) and he’s actually good at it. Over the years, he has grown a massive following and trust among his clients and fellow SEO’s which is lovely to see. With a thick accent, Craig comes across as an honest and fun guy to be around. I…

Session 05 was with Doug Cunnington, from Niche Site Project (link below). Doug has been around for a while, and it seems like we are on an affiliate marketing roll here as we had an affiliate marketer on session 04 too. Anyway, listen to the episode here: Alternatively, if you want to listen to this episode on your preferred podcast listening app, here goes the links: iTunes Spotify Stitcher Radio As I was telling in the podcast, I know Doug for a while now. The interesting takeaways for me for this episode was his thoughts about monetizing with Amazon affiliate marketing alone for 50% of his business (the other 50% comes from YouTube revenue, course and Niche Site Project). The whole discussion about whether he would have started all these if he wasn’t laid off from the job at Accenture is also something that I totally agree with. You need…

My understanding of the coding and development world is fairly new. I mentioned in this article that I am planning to learn coding and becoming a full stack developer. The plan is going strong. I have a clear road-map and I started running too. However, this article is not about me learning to code. This is about the concept of a ‘full-stack marketing expert’. What is a full-stack marketing expert? Alright, as you can imagine, the idea of a full stack marketing expert, comes from the idea of becoming a full stack developer. A full stack developer is someone who knows everything when it comes to a development project. You go to him with an idea and he’ll know what to do at the front-end, what to do at the back-end, what language should you use and how the databases should be prepared. Yes, a full stack developer is more expensive, and…

Alright! On Session 04 of the Building a Business Online, I have a gem of a guest – AKA Dom Wells. You can listen to the episode here: Alternatively, if you want to listen to this episode on your preferred podcast listening app, here goes the links: iTunes Spotify Stitcher Radio Dom or the world of Human Proof Designs is not new to me but it was great listening to the whole journey from Dom’s point of view. Funny story, when I was working at Passive Journal, I actually reached out to Dom for a written interview and he was kind enough to do it. We even published it back in the old site (not live anymore). It seems like doing a proper podcast interview with Dom is coming to a full circle. Human Proof Designs is the company that Dom built from ground up. They are a big name…
