About Borneoman
Joined May 2016
Hi guys! My name is Raynold and I live in North Borneo. My long-term goal is to achieve financial freedom from internet marketing. Currently, I teach secondary/high school at a local public school here in my country.

Before joining WA, I was involved with online MLM and lost a lot of money. Most of the companies have vanished, but I learned many skills such as social media marketing and also free and paid advertising.

Then I found out about CPA marketing while looking for ways to make money online. I bought a few cheap courses and started to launch campaigns using Facebook and Bing ads. This time I made a few conversions. Unfortunately after a few months, I ran out of cash and paused all my CPA campaigns.

I plan to jump into CPA marketing again in the near future because the potential of it is so huge. Wealthy Affiliate teaches how to build websites and monetize them. The process may take longer than the CPA model, but I think it's a better model in the long run.

I am really excited to be in this community and I promise myself to work as hard as I can until I make a full time income from internet marketing. English is my third language, so please be patient with all the grammatical errors that you might find in my writing.

Update 3 July 2016:
All the articles and reviews on the current website I'm working on (Amazon product review site) are done by freelance writers. I do the research, send them the writing assignments with specific instructions. When the articles/reviews are submitted, I'll review them and do some editing. Then I publish the edited articles on my site.

Update December 2016:
Made my first sales, my earning for this month is only $0.72 :-)

Update 31 January 2017:
In January 2017, I made 4 sales. The commission is only $1.72. Not many, but it's a good sign.

Update 22 February 2017:
Made $12 commissions from Amazon this month. Only 5 sales but the customer bought one high-ticket item (unrelated to what I'm promoting on my website).

Update 4 April 2017:
I thought my website will make no money at all in March, but just two days before April, my dog accessories site made two sales and I earned $2.88. A decrease in sales but I'm happy to make consistent sales every month since December last year.

Update 11 May 2018:
I make money consistently from Amazon EVERY month now. It's still not enough to quit my day job though, LOL.

I will take a break from my day job in July 2018, and work on building my Digital Marketing business (helping business owners with their online presence). The focus is SEO, content marketing, social media management and web design.

Hi @Borneoman. Nice to know you. My thumbs up for your chronological story of persistence of hard work. It will set an example for many of us to keep going.
Reply
Borneoman Premium
Thanks Hendra. Persistence will certainly help anyone to keep moving forward. I will take a break from my day job maybe in July and will focus on building my internet marketing business.

I'm launching a digital marketing business helping small business owners with their online presence. The focus is more on SEO, social media management and website design.

I can see that you have a translation business. How is it going for you? I translated countless English materials into Malay for my friends when I was still studying at university. But they're all free of charge.

Hi Raynold, thank you for the follow and thank you for sharing your earnings. It encourages people like me that have not made money yet. At least I know it is possible with your honest examples. Have a great day. Dave
Reply
Borneoman Premium
Hi Dave, thanks. It's possible to earn money online. I was quite busy with my day job and have very little time to update my site. I still earn a few dollars a month from my blog though.

I guess it's time to focus on growing my blog again. But I think I will have to change the direction of my gouty arthritis blog from recommending supplements to meal preparation and diet.

I think it's not right to recommend supplements, let the doctors do their work. I will still keep one or two articles for products that have positive feedback from real customers.
Reply
lizlipz Premium
Perhaps be careful to not delete any of the supplement pages as this could harm your google ranking. Just add the new diet articles. That is what I would recommend. :-)
Reply
Borneoman Premium
Haven't deleted them yet, honestly don't really have many supplement pages. Most are informative articles.

SEO white hat sites will long-term outperform CPA sites, and are much more honorable in some cases. Glad you've made the decision to go this way.
Reply
Borneoman Premium
Long term I think white hat is much better. It takes time but worth it. CPA is a very good way to make money too but you need to spend a lot of money for ads.

I has read all of your posts and really glad and awesome journey of you cikgu. try to make it too but I got a problem when sign up on amazon to be affiliate marketer. It asking for my own mobile app and you know I didn't have it. Do you signup in amazon and already your own mobile app or "another way" maybe?

I applied to be an Amazon affiliate 2 years ago. Amazon never asked me anything related to mobile app.

I'm laughing on my own suffering now. really hard for my generation to make online income isn't it??? Try to make my own mobile app, already download the software to build it, and stock at the code building app, must learn from 0 again about making own app. I don't now what to do right now, little bit confuse...
