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.

Peace.

Jay< I am 59 years old and never have gotten fully on board with this computer stuff. I am not dumb, but where do I go In my account to start choosing my niches, I am looking at the videos an going to the classroom can't figure this out Help Please.

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.
