About Jay Gumbs
Joined January 2007
My name is Jay Gumbs and I’ve been doing affiliate marketing since February 2006. I’ve been doing it full time since March 2009 when I decided I was consistently making enough to quit my job as a civil worker.

I’m proof that you can make money online from anywhere in the world because where I come from, a small island in the Caribbean called St. Vincent and the Grenadines, most people don’t even believe that it is possible. Still I get my checks in the mail on a regular basis and deposit them at the local bank.

I got started making money online after seeing an ad in the back of Small Business Opportunity magazine. I had been looking for ways to make money because I wasn’t happy with what I was making at the job.

I had tried MLM – you may have heard about Quixtar. That wasn’t for me especially in St. Vincent. I had wanted to do some other offline businesses but they never got off the ground.

The magazine ad would eventually lead me to advertising affiliate programs on Google Adwords where I made my first sales commission of $29.00.

This first sale got me hooked on affiliate marketing and I made it my business to learn everything I needed to know in order to make this a full time gig.

I would say that I failed a bit though in the beginning because I was trying to learn everything on my own and after a while during the first year I wasn’t making any money. There was something I was missing and I didn’t know what it was until January 2007 when I joined Wealthy Affiliate.

I’m pretty much a regular guy who loves to have fun. Guess I didn’t mention it before but I’ll be 32 in December.

I hang out with friends on the weekend, hit the clubs or the beach depending on which friends.

If and when I do travel, I usually like to go to Florida around the Ft. Lauderdale area where I have some family. I spent Christmas 2009 there with my mother and my uncle.

As far as hobbies, I love playing chess but the thing that I love most is listening to music and trying to figure out the samples. My favorite genre is hip hop but I grew up on basically everything from reggae, soca, blues, country and rock music so I pretty much listen to everything.

I’m still trying to figure out how to make money from my passion for sample based music.

That’s me in a nutshell. Add me to your network and let me know if I can help you in any way.

Peace.

I'm doing great Maricel. Welcome to WA again. Everything you need to know is in the beginner certification course. Go through it and if you have questions you can let me know or ask the community. If you take this seriously, I'm sure you'll be successful.

The course is here:

Hey Jay,
Happy New Year bro.
i had to take care of some financial emergencies and I did. As you know, I purchased the yearly premium membership. Now I'm really in the game! i think I need help prioritizing the many steps I must make in my transition from store owner/ collector/ musician to an online entrepreneur. Is there any type of training I can follow within WA? any consultation I can get? Can you help me sort out stuff? should I seek advice from Kyle/ or the community as a whole? I am a bit uncomfortable because I an not too sure of the protocols but I know I need help. I have a lot of hard assets..physical, bulk stuff like vinyl records, Art, stereo equipment, jewellery, electronics, furniture etc. Then there is the Music. I am an arranger / composer/ player/ teacher--many skills that I notice others are using on line that I think I can do amazingly at with little effort except that I don't know the tech side. I think I could probably book myself to play around the world on gigs all year round if people heard my stuff but I 'm just learning Garage Band.I know it all has to be separated into genres, stores, platforms etc but where do I start. Should I just make a chart of what I think is the superstructure and run it by you or someone else?

And I have started to shift the direction. I am negotiating with a thrift shop owner to sell stuff out of my store on line for a commission. She wants 40%(I prefer 30 or max 33%) to post on her Facebook, kijiji, ebay etc. She will complete all sales and keep a record. I trust her but who should establish the price?Is there a standard? I know there is a site that can give a price on anything based on averages of auctions around the world in the last year. Should I price the stuff then let her sell for what she wants then pay me my price?This is happening today. At least I will get some movement. But the ART, RECORDS, STEREO, I think need their own website.

I don't want to overwhelm you with this stuff. So if you could give me some pointers for the organization or just point me in the broadest direction I would appreciate it. The fine tuning can come later but at least you have some idea of the picture.

Thanks again,

John

Jay is all this worth it? I'm 19 and sometime next year I'm going to begin to once again not have the opportunity to make my own choices. I graduated in 2016, and have been working part-time as a Tower Climber for a local ISP company. I'm not sure what to do with myself. When I'm not working I play games, even have been thinking about going to college for something game related but I'm so distraught and unsure. I'm not like my brother, he instantly knew what he wanted to do. Is it so wrong for me to think that I don't wish to work all my life? To think that I could eventually generate enough income per month that I could do something else I enjoyed? My parents have raised me well but have not been the best examples of financial stars. I'm so tired of exploring options on my own. Do you really generate enough money a month that you were comfortable with leaving your job? And what is your website?
Reply
Jay Gumbs Premium
Here's an idea. If you really love games, use that passion to build a game related website. I think there's a guy here on WA that makes up to 5 figures ($10,000) with a game review website. Is it all worth it? Follow the courses here on WA and a year from now you'll look back and be able to answer this question yourself.

What's your favorite game?

To answer your questions, I did leave my job in 2009 to do affiliate marketing full time because I was generating significantly more money than I did working for someone else. I'm still doing well even after 7 years on my own. I have a number of websites including the one you read before you got here.

This is a good opportunity for you and you can even make it your career if you want. Picture yourself just playing games whenever you feel like, reviewing them on a website you created and collecting a commission check at the end of the month. Can you picture that?

Hello Jay, I have fallen far behind need to go back and take up where I left off, I had a lot of things going on. I just started college on line, but I really want to take a crack at making this wok for me here at WA . My website is up but I need to find the next steps on getting it up and running . Should I go back to around the 7 or 8 lesson?

Reply
Jay Gumbs Premium
I know how bad you need this Matthew and I would like to help. First off, you're in the right place. WA as an online education platform can help you establish an income stream if you're willing to do the work. Just follow the lessons and take action on what you learn and you'll be on the right path to building a business that can take care of you and your family for a long time.

WA as a community (including myself) can help you when you're stuck and provide encouragement when things don't look like they're working. I'm offering guidance if you need it - I can walk you through the lessons if that's what it takes.

Understand that this is not going to happen overnight and that you might need to upgrade your account at some point to take advantage of premium features and lessons but for now your starter account will be enough to give you an idea of how you can make money online and build the initial foundation.

My advice is to jump in now and do the Level 1 course (gree button, top left), complete all the tasks and ask questions in the community as you go along. Need help with anything, you can also just let me know and I'll try to get you an answer.

All the best,

Jay

Jay I completed the 3 pages in lesson 7 then went back and put in my site name and its coming up Trisha's Hair and Wigs not TRISHAS HAIR and WIGS. Please take another look for me something is not right.
Reply
Jay Gumbs Premium
It's supposed to be Trisha's Hair and Wigs. I see you have a page that says TRISHAS HAIR and WIGS. Edit that page and in the title section, you can put the right thing. You still also need to go to Settings (on your Wordpress dashboard its right at the bottom) like I told you and Edit the site title so that it says Trisha's Hair and Wigs.

PatriciaJose Premium
I went back and corrected what you told me to do. When I pull up site manager it still shows trishashairandwigs even though I updated the page.

Jay Gumbs Premium
Did you hit refresh under Site Manager? Don't worry about Site Manager, they'll eventually update but you can always hit refresh to see the changes immediately.

By the way, I just checked your title and you still have the part saying .siterubix.com at the end of the title. Remove that part. Your title is what shows up when someone does a search in Google.

You also need to go to Settings > General > Site Title. Change the site title field to Trisha's Hair and Wigs instead of having it all joined up.

Yes Patricia. You got that right. Your home page title should be the title of your website or your main keyword that you're trying to rank for. You can change it at any time. If you want you can pm the link to me so I could check it out.

website name is trishashairandwigs,siterubix.com
Reply
Jay Gumbs Premium
Ok that's not the website name. That's the website address or url. The website name is Trisha's Hair and Wigs so you should make that your site title. Also where you have TRISHASHAIRANDWIGS, you should make that into Trisha's Hair and Wigs so it can easily be read and understood by website visitors.
Reply
PatriciaJose Premium
Okay, so the Website and Home Title both should be TRISHA'S HAIR and WIGS.siterubix.com

Jay I am ready to set up my website do I just go to the rubix site and start messing around there?
Reply
Jay Gumbs Premium
Well it's not messing around but I know what you mean.

Setting up your website is Lesson 4 of Course 1. This means that you understand the basic concept of affiliate marketing (lesson 2) and you've already found a niche - the topic you're going to be building your website around (lesson 3).

As long as you have the above things covered then you can proceed with Lesson 4 which will show you step by step how to set up your website.

The short answer if you need that is to click on Website & Hosting in the left sidebar or the Site Rubix tab in the left sidebar and then use the build website link to set up your website.

Reply
Jay Gumbs Premium
A URL would be another word for a web address. So they're probably asking for your website where you're going to promote their product. I'd suggest not signing up for that as yet. If you're signing up as an affiliate then this means you already found your niche?

Anyway your url is your website address. The url for the page you're reading or looking at would be in your browser address bar - the www.whatever thing at the top.

Reply
Jay Gumbs Premium
Oh hey Patricia, I just answered your other question you posted before.

There isn't really a specific place to choose a niche. I posted 4 questions on the other question you asked that should help you out.

Basically, you just choose something that you're interested in, that you know you can write about (or research), or something you want to learn about or something you have specialized knowledge about. Anyone of those can be your niche.

For example, I love playing pool so it would make sense for me to choose pool as a niche. I could make a website talking about pool and sell pool tables and other stuff people like me (niche) are interested in.

Or I really would like to learn music production right, so this is a good way to blog about my journey and teach others with less experience that I have how to produce music. I could review different training websites that I've tried, different production software that I've used and refer with my affiliate link.

Just choose something that you like doing like a hobby or an interest and that could be your niche. If you want to run some ideas by me or have me help you select a niche then just private message me and I'll see what I can do.

Hi Jay how are you ?
you have an exiting story to share to the world
i am also from a small country to in central Africa where people don't believe one can ever make it online but i am on the road to proof them wrong.

just a little question . as a member in WA and if you have some affiliate payments to receive how does WA pay you, i mean which means and if paypal does not work in your country like mine which is best
Reply
Jay Gumbs Premium
I'm good Ndemazeah. I just want to inspire people who think they have the odds stacked against them. Anyone can do this and I know that you can too even from Central Africa.

With the payments thing, if you can't get through Paypal, Kyle will write you a check for your earnings - you just have to message him at the beginning of the month when they're paying out. You can then deposit the check at your bank. It takes a while to clear but that's the only option.

Hey Jay, When I first joined I remember a blog of yours which compared Network Marketing to Affiliate Marketing showing the differences and how Aff could support Net. There is a newbie who I suspected didn't know the difference (he thought that WF was a network Marketing outfit) and I was right. He replied to me and I promised to send him your blog. But I can't find it. This underscores my earlier question to you - how do I save blogs, replies, profiles, that I have an affinity with or that I may need in the future or for referencing. Is there a way on this site to do that?

But first , the blog. I will like to get it to the new member
Reply
Jay Gumbs Premium
My blog is at amvsmlm.com

You can save stuff outside of WA using your browsers favorites button. Inside WA I'm not sure you can save replies but profiles you can save by following the person and then you can always check the "network > following" tab on your own profile.

Hey Jay,
Thanks for the totally comprehensive reply. I really do understand.

I wrote you a long half an hour reply and just before sending it I thought to send it as a private message. The attempt was rejected and I could not get back to to the original. I had touched on many things that I needed to run by you. Can I ever retrieve it? I am going to sign up for premium for the next month then to annual.

Thanks again, Jay. Your explanation was very clear.
Reply
Jay Gumbs Premium
Sorry about that. I would have loved to read it. Don't think there's a way to get it back though.

Going premium is the right decision. Furthermore going annual is even better because you commit yourself to doing this for at least a year. There's no way you can fail unless you don't apply the training.
Reply
Jay Gumbs Premium
By the way, I dont' think free members can send private messages so maybe it's saved as a draft then you could send it out after you go premium. Not sure.

Hey Jay, This is what I need to understand COMPLETELY. I am "following" only because others are and I don't want to be left behind. But I don't know what I am doing. I posted this question three times: What does "follow" mean? What is the benefit of following someone? Is the benefit to the person followed or the person following?Why are people who don't know me following me? I clicked on the box that gave me the option to put it out to the community but I did not get a reply. Do I have to look in a particular place for a reply? Is following like getting "friends' on Facebook? I never do it unless I already know the person. My step son has 3000 friends that he boasts about. Why? He has no connection with them.I think it's stupid but what do I know? What am I missing? Understanding this would help me a lot. Thanks bro.

Jay Gumbs Premium
Sorry about the late reply John.

Did you get a response for your questions? I'll answer the ones you posted here.

Following someone on Wealthy Affiliate builds your network and allows you to connect with people who might be able to assist you when you need or who you think posts good training and otherwise interesting material on here. Everytime someone you're following posts something, you get a notification email to go check it out.

This can help you in that you can learn all types of things relevant to your affiliate marketing training that aren't contained in the courses. So following people is good.

What aren't people following you? People follow you even if they don't know you or you don't know them because they want to be able to offer you help if needed. That's the type of community we have here at Wealthy Affiliate. It's not just about them wanting to put themselves in the way all the time but it also helps them. Because they follow you and you follow them back, it builds a readership for whenever they post informative blogs and training.

There's a feature here called ambassadorship and you might notice that there's a number next to your name called a rank. The top 25 are called ambassadors and being in the top 25 has it's benefits. To get here people have to be active contributors on the site creating content, answering questions and helping others. You can see how this relates to following people and building a network.

It's similar to social media like Facebook but it's different in that following people and having people follow you has benefits.

By the way, I'm automatically following anyone who I refer to WA because I'm supposed to help my referrals so it makes sense that they're connected to me. You're following me automatically because you shouldn't be missing anything I end up posting as training or a blog.

The benefits to you of me following you is that if you end up asking a question on here, I'll get a notification and you will have someone to answer that question at least.

I doubt you'll know many people if anyone on here so accept the follows (there's no way to reject them anyway) and start following people ( I suggest the ones here on the following list - top 25 https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/rank ).

Hey Dessaire. I help everyone who asks so you don't have to worry about that. I'll hold your hand if that is what is needed for you to reach your goals.

About the username, you can probably fix it by going to Account Settings (last link in the left sidebar) and clicking Edit next to your "username". You can only change this once so make sure it's what you want when you change it.

What do you mean with sample based music. I guess I am just a bit out there as far as terminology things. Nice to meet you!
Reply
Jay Gumbs Premium
Sample based music is music that has elements of older songs in them. It's most common in electronic and hip hop music but can exist in other genres as well. Cover songs can also be classified as sample based music as well as remixes because they're of a derivative nature.

If you're familiar with Nicki Minaj's Anaconda song which was a big hit a while back then that is an example of sample based music as it uses elements from an older song by Sir Mix a Lot called Baby Got Back.

thank you for the welcome, Jay. I have been trying to figure this out for about 15 years now, and finally have the confidence to pursue it for real. The fact that I am getting too old to work hard physically is a great motivator.

Hi Jay,
I just came upon one of your http://www.amvsmlm.com/ site
as I was searching to create a new post (seems you did one that I was thinking of). I am impressed with your site and look forward to following you.

Have you continued with the experiment?
Reply
Jay Gumbs Premium
Thanks. I'm still working on the experiment but I have to admit that I got sidetracked with some other more important projects which is why I haven't posted on either of those sites recently.

Glad you liked the site. I'll work on it more in the new year.

hi, do u know the saying "once bitten twice shy"
I have been deceived by legitonlinejobs. They posted a nice online jobs and i was attracted to it only because i am desperate looking for job. And in their post under FAQ, they have stated that once u are a registered member there would be no any extra cost when dealing with the companies affiliated to them with those online jobs.
They've taken my registration fee which was $34.59 and instead of them to fulfill their part of the contract, they are not doing it.
They are now sending me some site which i need to register with them again, and with and another registration fees.
so JAY, can u blame me for not been able to register under WA?.

Sure Bruce, I understand why you'd be hesitant to become a premium member of WA after your experience with LOJ.

However, I assure you that WA is nothing like LOJ. LOJ is a scam, plain and simple while WA offers an education in building an online business. Two very different things.

WA offers a free service which you are a part of and no one is going to force you to upgrade or pay money for the premium service if you don't want it.

I would encourage you to make the most of the free service though. Take the time to learn everything from the courses that are available and build your website. You'd be surprised at how much you could accomplish with such limited resources. You can make money with the free account but if you really want to grow your online business and get access to everything available here then the premium service is there whenever you can afford it.

You're safe here at WA. No one will ever try to sell you something that you don't need.

Have a great week and let me know if there's anything else I can clarify for you.

Thank u very much for ur advise and ur recommendations.
Jay, can't we do anything about LOJ? They are not helping the society to get rid of poverty but rather just promoting internet fraud or scam.
Is there any means that we can use to report or channel their atrocity to the world.

Jay Gumbs Premium
Well, I did my part. I wrote a review about it on my website. Not sure if you've seen that.

Since you've been a member you could try writing a review detailing your experience as well. A good idea would be to build a website around this and then research where people can actually find real, legitimate online jobs (freelance stuff etc.). I know there are some of these sites that offer affiliate programs but I'm not sure if its for actual workers or for clients. Here's a list:
http://www.entrepreneur.com/article/245953

You can also promote something that you believe in like WA.

Other than spreading the word through building your own website, there's not much else you can do. There's lots of scams out there that have been around for a long time and still going.

Reply
Jay Gumbs Premium
Hey Joel, writing isn't that hard. Your problem is probably something else.

For an about me page forget that you're writing something for your business. On paper, or in your Wordpress editor, tell a friend a little about yourself, how you ended up getting into affiliate marketing, why you want to do this and the reason why you're building that website. Those 4 points should be enough to make up your About Me page. Include your picture as well.

If you need guidance, check out my about me page but only after you've written yours according to the outline I gave you above.

Hi Jay, hope you're good mate :) I have a quick question for you!
I came up with a niche (several, actually) within seconds of watching the 'niche' video and am definitely going to pursue that/them with my first websites. However, I'm also interested in the affiliate bootcamp and promoting WA, as I can already see the massive benefits it has! :) Is it greedy/biting off more than I can chew to want to do both? Do you think I should complete the basic training and get an operational website BEFORE I do the affiliate bootcamp, or do you think it's reasonable to try both concurrently? Thanks in advance, Tim :)
Reply
Jay Gumbs Premium
I'm doing great. I don't think it's greedy at all but if you're just getting used to the concept of affiliate marketing, I would advise you to do one website on one of your niches first, complete the training and then do the bootcamp.

If you can't wait to do the bootcamp, most of the get started course is just about the same thing so you could probably set aside maybe a day in the week to go through the bootcamp lessons and do a couple of tasks each time. However, the majority of the focus should be on that other niche.

Jay

Hi Jay, that's great advice, thank you! :) I'll let you know when my website is up! :)
I'll probably wait until I'm more comfortable with the whole process before doing the bootcamp, makes sense :)

This is my last day that I'm able to ask any questions and I'm glad I came across your profile because I noticed that you make money online, and it seems that I've had the same problems but I'm stuck. How have you succeeded? What kind of advice can you give me? Is there something out there that is real and requires no money down? I'm the type that I want to try it and if it really is "all that great" people should be willing to help others out like they say they do by letting them try it. I'm all for agreeing to give at least half of what I make if it's like they say it is & possibly more just to prove I'm serious and committed.....I'd sign a contract if I had to just to find the truth out there.
Reply
Jay Gumbs Premium
Hey Whitney, I hope you don't ever have to give up half of what you earn or more. That's no way to learn how to make money online.

You have everything here that I didn't have. The problem is that you're not open to trying the methods because it requires that you invest in the courses. This is the best education you can have that will teach you how to make money online. It is real and you wouldn't have to keep looking elsewhere.

How have I succeeded? With this same system except it wasn't as half as good as it is now when I started 8 years ago. Everything is much better now - the courses, the support and the resources.

I don't want to try to sell you on continuing with WA because you've already sampled the site and it's totally up to you how you feel about it at this point and what you've already made up you mind about the next move.

However, I can certainly help you to make this work if you give it a try and choose to continue.

If you've truly worked your way through the first course, then you should already have a niche market and set yourself up with a website.

Finding a niche that you love is the first and most important step because everything that comes after depends on this including your success.

I suggest that you really work on this aspect and not proceed until you have decided and settled on a niche market that you're willing to build a website around.

I hope that you decide to continue with Wealthy Affiliate.
