Hi!

My name is Chris, and I have a son named Benjamin (or Benji). Hence my site, Benjisdad dot com.

Benji was born on January 11, 2017 at 6lb 5oz.

Words could not describe the feelings my wife and I felt once this little bundle of joy entered our world. He is a cute kid that loves to talk your head off, yet he is chill enough only to cry when he wants something. Otherwise, he is a happy and content young man.

Dilemma...

As the father of this new family, I was immediately met with pressure to care for the emotional, physical, and spiritual needs of my wife and new son.

This new pressure was compounded when my wife and I decided that she would quit her job of 8+ years to become the prototypical stay at home mom and care for our son.

All of a sudden we had to get used to being a family with one income and fast!

My day job paid decently well, but I needed a way to replace the income that my wife had brought in for all this time. Also, I wanted to diversify.

Believe me, I tried everything. Youtube channel, moonlighting as a DJ on the weekends, doing other odds and end work, just trying to generate some funds. These things were nice, and I made a little money with it but there were a few problems…

It was not bringing in enough income.
It took too much time away from the family on top of my regular 9-5 job.
It took too much time to cultivate with no ending in sight.
I needed a way to generate a “Passive Income”. Income that I did not have to do much work to cultivate.

Solution???

Through my endless searching, I stumbled upon a little thing called Affiliate Marketing. Now, do not get it twisted, Affiliate Marketing takes time to cultivate, but once cultivated, it can and will make you money without having to do much upkeep at all.

Then I heard the words that would change my life forever… “You can make a full-time income on only one site!”

I did not believe it; I could not believe it… But then I started to learn about Affiliate Marketing and all of a sudden it clicked. Affiliate Marketing is something that virtually has no ceiling. You make as much money as you want, You just have to put in the work.

At that point, I was hooked and began learning everything I possibly could to get this online business off the ground.

It was at that point that I realized that the world of making money online is real, I just have to learn the business and put in the work then I would be able to watch the passive income arrive ….well… you know… passively.

That is where we are now. I have an incredibly addictive personality when I latch onto something I have to know and love it inside and out and succeed with it before I even dream of letting it go.

Affiliate Marketing is a whole world with limitless potential.

Conclusion!

So join me on my journey as I learn Affiliate Marketing and pass on my troubles and mistakes onto you so that hopefully you can learn from them and avoid the usual pitfalls that are typical to first-time Affiliate Marketers.

I will also drop updates of the goings on of the family, especially baby Benji, as he grows up. Hopefully, he will appreciate all the work I am putting in for him!

The journey will be long and arduous, but I have insane motivation to succeed. I have to, for my family.

Believe me, Affiliate Marketing works… It really does.

Check out the site and be sure to drop me a line any time you want a particular product reviewed or just have a question. You can contact me at Chris@BenjisDad.com

In the meantime, don’t be a stranger. Join in on the discussion, and I will see you later.

This is Benji’s Dad, signing off!

Hi, Chris: I'm responding to your question about where I am in my training. I have picked out two niches, and have watched the first video on building a website. The next task is to actually BUILD my website, and I went to the available templates. I am looking for an image of a girl-next-door type who is a bit top heavy, because my niche is bras for big girls. I think I'm over-thinking this process. Is there a way to refine my search by using search terms, or can I download an image from the internet and put it in my website? Thank you! Shoshana

You are looking for a logo?

I guess I am! I took the day off and went to my knitting group, which consists of a very nurturing kind group of ladies. I needed to do that because I found out 5 or 6 days ago that my son has a brain tumor. That is hugely awful news, but for some reason has not put me off the WA project. I left off last night watching the Build your Website video, and ran down a rabbit hole looking for a picture of a girl-next-door type who was a little overweight. That's when I told you I thought I was overthinking the project. anyway, yes, please, a logo!
Thank you! Shoshana

you can go create a free logo over at Canva.com That is where i create most of mine. You can also buy one off of fiverr.com. but only do it if you hvae the money to invest as it is not necessary to have a logo from jump.

i am not 100% sure, but usually you get an error like that when your website is not secure meaning the SSL is not turned on.

Try it again, and if the issue persists, contact support right here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/support

Hi Chris.
I wanted to ask a quick question regarding domain names.
I purchased one when I started my training, but in this evenings training, I learned that I want a .com one and I bought a .org one. Kyle says in the training it is best to have a .com
My site is started with the .org one is there a way to somehow switch the one I bought with another one I will purchase?
Reply

Unfortunately no. Domain purchases are pretty final. So you will either have to stick with what you got or buy another domain.

.org isnt bad however.

Hey Benji, I need your guidance on picking a niche. I cannot decide between Music, Books or Games...It is tough choosing because I am not sure what I would be doing for monetization. Ex say I review/write about a certain genre/style of books/music/games...Im not sure which one (&how;) of the three would translate to $
I also thought about doing something simple in a health category (random ex, face creams) but tbh my desire isn't that strong for it. Any help is appreciated!

You can monetize all those by referring people to Apple. The Apple store had an affiliate program. So does Amazon music.

The games nice you can promote games of of Amazon. Same thing with books.

Do a Google search for your niche + affiliate program and you can find tons of products.

Hi Benji,
You seem very down to earth and real. I found you through your review of Keala Kanae and I was disappointed to see what they show isn't really the whole truth. So I'm deciding to follow your path.
I wanted to ask;
a) Is there a catch to this whole business?
b) If I follow the steps, realistically, when can I expect to get my first inbound $$$
Please be as real with me as possible! :)
Thank you for your time!

hi wajj!

sure, ill answer your questions!

a) the only catch is it will take work on your part to make this work. You are the only thing in front of you and succeeding with making money online. It's not hard work, but the training here works, if you follow it, you will succeed.

b) again, to reiterate, it largely depends on you. Think of it like building a house. if you put a brick here and a brick there, do not come back tomorrow and expect a house! You will have to build your empire, but once it is built, you can live in your house and enjoy the fruits of your labor!

I will tell you my experience... I made my first sale about 8 weeks in. Was making consistent enough money to to pay for the service month to month in about 6 to 7 months. at about a year, I was making over 1k a month.

I will be here to help you and so will the community! so use us up!
