About Us, the Journey So Far

Hi

My name is Julian Webb, and my wife Janette and I live on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia…… and a bit differently, we live on a boat, it makes for a great view…………. and there’s no lawns to mow!

– Like a lot of folks these days we realised that if we wanted to do silly things, like eat…… we had to find a source of extra income……. and with no rich relatives to kill, we looked around and stumbled across Internet Marketing.

– With low to no investment it seemed perfect
- All you needed was a computer and time, right
– As we had those 2 covered, we only needed the method, so about a 2-3 ago I started researching.
– After spending thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours, I expected to pretty much know it all, or at least have a damn good grip on it, BUT just like 9 out of 10 folks who contact me…………….. I’d learned a huge amount, had collected lot’s of info………….. but didn’t seem to be there yet, and worse…………….. I WASN’T SURE WHY NOT

Was I just too stupid to get it?

– I’m not the smartest guy in the room, but I can tie my own shoe laces in the dark………… so where was I going wrong?

– Finally I figured out what I think is the reason ssooo many normal, intelligent folks, just like you…….. and maybe me on a good day, were finding this difficult, so if you’ll bear with me I’ll give you my opinion of where the problem lies.

TAKE A DEEP BREATH IT’S NOT YOU

– Assuming you have basic computer skills, have the discipline to apply yourself for a couple of hours at a time, and can tie that all together with the IQ of a glass of warm milk, you should be able to buy any one of the 50+ “make $200 a day” systems that you get bombarded with every day……….. and well, make yourself $200 a day, right?

Well YES if you’re lucky, but on average NO, sound familiar?

– See when we were growing up, more than likely up someone in our family had a car. We saw, heard, watched and probably rode in cars.
– We might not have known how to drive one BUT we “absorbed” things about cars, and even if we never drove one…………. we ended up knowing quite a bit about them…………. just by coexisting

– Enter the PC/Internet era, again we participated, caught up, learned, absorbed, even if only through our jobs, struggled at times but we came out the other end with most of our hair in tact, and a whole lot more knowledge.
- Mostly we had time and opportunity to “catch up”.

– Now….. this Internet Marketing/Making Money Online thing, to me and everyone I’ve spoken to at least, came out of the blue.
- Every 6 figure marketer will spout about how he’s been “making money online for a million years”…….. but none of them ever mixed with me or anyone I’ve ever met, and if they were, would they likely tell anyone about it anyway?

– So we are SUDDENLY confronted with a whole new vocabulary like CTR, CPC, Autoresponder, redirects, squeeze pages, SEO, SMO, PLR and lead magnets……….. what?

– THE BIG THING IS WE’VE HAD NO TIME TO ABSORB OR “PRE LEARN” any of these, and suddenly you have to learn or master 5 or 6 totally new concepts………… AND you have to master them all BEFORE you’re going to be able to implement that “easy $200 a day” method you just paid for!!!
- For most of us I think it’s called a “vertical learning curve”

– Again, I’m the slow kid in the room, but I found email follow up campaigns, autoresponders, deciphering tracking pixels/Click Magic etc, a bit of a step, it’s maybe just me, but on top of all the other “simple” things I’d just battled through, I was feeling a bit battered.

IT’S ALL ENOUGH TO MAKE YOU FEEL VERY INADEQUATE…….. AND MAYBE GIVE UP

– So it was round about this time we realised maybe we just might not be cut out for this Affiliate Marketing lark, and after a lot of souls searching, wine and honesty……. we decided, sod it!  Trying to get by can be tricky enough as it is, and we had noticed there’s way more folks around who’ll make you feel down……….. than those who’ll make you feel up, so why not make a website that makes you feel up, one that we would like, …………… I know THE worst plan for any business, but we thought if we make a “feel good”, genuinely helpful website, then with a bit of luck keeping others positive will rub off on us too.

– So here we are, and we hope you’ll find our posts & info useful & helpful.

– If you stay healthy, positive & happy life can only be good……… for you and yours.

Cheers, Julian & Janette
