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 37 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.

Hello there Jay, thanks for your post. I too decided to join due to your blog post. I just wasn't getting the support that I needed through the conversion pros. But I would still like to market them and gain commissions off of them as well. No site has ever offered this kind of training that walks you through everything step by step that I know of. I immediately became a premium member and knew this was for me.

Again, thanks Jay for the work you put into helping people!

Hi Jay. I don't think you get credit officially for me going premium but I wanted you to know that your review is probably the reason I decided to go and stay premium. I read many reviews over the course of a month and continue to read reviews even though I am premium now. I just want to get the most out of this WA experience. Anyways. Thought you should know.

Thanks Misti. That means a lot to me.
Helo! i am knew at this site. I thougt i could read the learning levels for free , but i am asked to pay money after first lesson. i was told to have free premium membership for 7 day , now down to 6 days. I just want to check this site out before decide if i want to prosede to premium membership .
have a nice day .

You will learn a lot with the beginner course which has 10 lessons. By the end of that free course, you will have a website live on the internet and an understanding of how affiliate marketing and earning online works.

These are the basics and you would have a great foundation on which to build any internet business even if you decide you dont want to continue with premium. That in itself is worth a lot but its' free. The premium will advance your knowledge and progress even further and set you up for even more success. Premium will also unlock access to more resources and features that you obviously cant expect to get for free anywhere online but is all in one place here so you dont have to spend money on tonnes of business resources that you will need.

You dont have to pay for premium if you dont want to but you can still learn a lot from your free account by checking out other training available here. You can use the site you created during your first course to make money (yes free sites can still make money). Just take action and be consistent and you will make money.

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,
