Meet an Affiliate Marketer that Made it to the Top
Last Update: Sep 25, 2016
Hello WA family,
I want to introduce you to Pat Flynn, of SmartPassiveIncome.com fame, whom I admire very much and I've been following for the past seven years. He's an affiliate marketer that has made it to the top of our industry. He started his website "Smart Passive Income" back in 2008 after he lost his job as an architect. Today his website has well over 150,000 active members. He's a devote family man and a phenomenal human being that loves to help others. He calls himself "The Crash Test Dummy of Online Business".
Pat loves to podcast and he has several of them running simultaneously. One of his podcasts is called "Ask Pat". Every weekday he answers online business questions from his followers in a short easy to digest podcast. He has nearly 7 million downloads of this podcast alone. You can ask him a question or subscribe to his podcast at http://www.smartpassiveincome.com/ask-pat/. I would think that many of our members could make good use of Pat's offer to answer those tough questions that they have.
In one of his other podcast called "The Smart Passive Income Podcast", he just posted an episode where he interviewed his own family. In this podcast, he and his wife talk about the struggles they went through in the early years and how they held it together until they made it to the other side. I highly recommend this podcast to anyone in the early years of their business. You can find it at http://www.smartpassiveincome.com/podcasts/meet-the-flynn-family-with-april-keoni-and-kailani/.
Another unique and motivating thing that Pat does is he posts his income report on his website so you can see how much he's making with his internet business and from what streams it's coming from. Pat is a true affiliate marketer and sells no products (although he has a couple books now and speaks at events), he gets all of his income from his affiliate links - and he makes well over a million dollars a year.
To your success, Kevin
Thanks Kevin...it's always good to know other people's struggles and how they finally made it....
Michael, he's certainly had his share of struggles. Now he's reaching down to help pull as many as he can up to where he is. He's an extraordinary gentlemen.
That is the mark of a great man....to pull people up to where he is....so rare in this world!
"I am a huge fan of Pat Flynn and I read his Smart Passive Income blog almost every day. He is a very successful blogger but at the sam time, he is a very friendly and approachable guy.
Going there now Kevin. You are batting a thousand today brother !
I just visited his site and it is awesome. I have it on my desktop so I can get to it quickly when I have time to go thru it step by step including his 3 required podcasts.
Thank you Steve! Trying to share all that I can with the community. I've gained so much over the past decade. Take care!
I especially like to listen to his "Ask Pat" series where he answers a question each weekday from an online marketer. It only takes about ten to 15 minutes of your day, but you can learn a lot.
All the best, Kevin
