Scott has turned his personal passion for his niche into profits
These days I’m a full time affiliate marketer. Before I got involved in affiliate marketing, I worked in the high tech industry doing product management and product marketing.
I started working with MoreNiche in 2014.
I like promoting health and fitness offers since that is an area where I have a lot of personal interest. I look for products and services that offer commissions over $20 and have lifetime cookies. That really hasn’t changed much over the last few years.
The biggest challenge has been trying to keep up with and stay on top of all the algorithm changes of Google. Another challenge is focus. It’s very easy to get distracted by all the “shiny objects” that I’m bombarded with on a daily basis. Finally, I tend to want to do everything myself, and that makes it very difficult to grow and scale quickly.
First, I’d tell myself that to be successful in affiliate marketing, you have to take a marathon mentality vs. a sprinter mentality. You have to think about the business for the long haul.
Second, I would say that to be successful you have to be consistent. That means you have to think about doing something positive for your business each day. No matter what that is. Those daily consistent steps will eventually produce revenue, and that revenue will build.
The third thing would be that action cures fear. Take action and do something, even if it’s not perfect. Don’t get paralysed with fear or wanting everything to be perfect.
Probably a personal trainer.
In terms of hard liquor, my favorite is bourbon. For wine, I love a good Pinot Noir. Nothing beats an ice cold beer on a hot summer’s day!
