Ted is my name. Logic is my game. I have devoted my entire career to applying logic to every action I take to enhance the possibility of a successful outcome.
I have been around the Internet as long as the Internet has been around.
I first started working with computers in 1985 when the PC was first introduced. As I learned about the evolving World Wide Web I could easily visualize an emerging market for entrepreneurs to capitalize on new ways to make money through e-commerce. I learned database programming and later developed some skills in web development.
The early years of browser development also brought the development of on-line stores and with that a need for a way to promote those enterprises. Thus was born the affiliate program, or in other words pay per click advertising. Companies offered to pay webmasters to host advertisements on their sites for a % payment each time someone clicked on that ad.
Boy did I ever see a potential in this method of making money. Quickly I developed websites that did nothing other than have links to categorized advertisers that I signed up with to receive a royalty when the masses flocked to my site to find the on-line products of their dreams. I was really shocked when I still hadn't made any money after a year or so.
Totally disheartened I gave up, went to college and got a degree in computer science and drudged along from company to company. When the whole manufacturing world disappeared and moved to Mexico I eventually settled into a university IT career until retirement.
Now it is circa 2016 and because the Internet world has really evolved I decided it was time to re-explore affiliate program opportunities. Through my daily distraction from life
-Facebook- I began being bombarded by sponsored ads for making money on the Internet.
As I researched these quote "opportunities" I started realizing the vast number of scams out there and how easy it would be to fall for the hype and loose a lot of money very quickly.
I'm so glad a WA affiliate led me to WA, a refreshing change from all the easy money promises out there.
