The first thing people seem to ask me when they talk to me is, “So, what do you do?” I always cringe a little at that question because most people have such a cut and clear answer to it. Most people say they do things like build Adsense sites, promote Amazon products, write, or create products.
Well, I don’t really have a cut and clear answer because I do everything I can get my hands on! I know, I know… focus is important and you shouldn’t spread yourself too thin… but I just find something very enjoyable about having a bunch of projects going and doing a little of everything.
You see, I came across IM about a year ago. Yes, I realize that means I haven’t been in the field long, but I’ve had great success. I’m a very fast learner and love what I’m doing. Not to mention, I have tons of time on my hands.
I don’t see myself as an Internet Marketer as much as I see myself as a housewife, which is what I’ve been doing for years. I do love being a housewife. I love being with my family and taking care of my home. The thing is, as time went on I started wanting to do more. I’m 23 years old and I couldn’t help but feel like I needed more in my life. I started trying different hobbies and I tried learning about all kinds of things because I love to read and learn. I started writing as a hobby, sewing, all kinds of things. They were fun, but I still felt like it wasn’t right.
As time went on I also started noticing our money not stretch nearly as far as it used to. This got me thinking… what if my hobby could earn me money? I went off in search of ways to make money from home. I’ve got a good eye for scams so I was able to keep from getting scammed out of money while doing this, but my first few opportunities didn’t make me much money. First I tried surveys for money. I made about $20 and just decided it wasn’t worth it. Later I tried something called ChaCha where you answered questions for people who texted in. I made about $100 on that but it was at about $2/hr.
Later I came across Warrior Forum. I started absorbing all of the free information. I learned about Amazon sites, Fiverr, affiliate marketing, and so much more. I was just reading everything. Finally, I was ready to start something. I started with writing since I didn’t have any start up money. I met a writer who offered me $20 to write some articles for him, the stipulation being I needed to use that money to post a Warriors for Hire thread to advertise my services. That thread became very popular! I was making hundreds of dollars writing for people on WF. I was so happy! I invested a bit to start my first website, a website to advertise my writing services called Writing by Amanda.
I hope you’ll follow me and continue the adventure with me. Internet marketing is something I love and am very passionate about. I’m very excited to share my passion with you!
