Hi, my names Ben Fletcher, I’ve been a full time Fitness Affiliate marketer since 2012 and thanks for visiting my blog!
To give you a little backstory, a bit of a backdrop about who I am, more importantly, what I do.
And even more importantly, still, from your point of view, is why I’ve started this website.
I assume that you’re here because you want to get into affiliate marketing.
Specifically in the Fitness Industry.
As you can see from my pictures on this website, I’m no Adonis.
I eat pizza, I like Jaffa Cakes and I drink Beer.
But I’ve still made a full time income in Fitness Affiliate Marketing for the past 8 years (at the time of writing this post).
I’ve successfully done:
- Bodybuilding Affiliate Marketing
- Weight Loss Affiliate Marketing
- Aesthetic Bodybuilding Affiliate Marketing (very Niche)
Using both free and paid (Pay Per Click or PPC for short) traffic methods.
I’m guessing if you’re anything like me, (or like I was), you will have a job at the moment.
You’re sick of that job and you want to get out of that job, you want a bit more money, a bit more freedom in your life, all things that I completely resonate with and totally get it.
I came from that position as well.
Like I say, I’ve been affiliate marketing for a long time. It’s what I do. I love doing it and it’s been very rewarding for me.
I started affiliate marketing back in late 2011-2012.
So, I’ve been online for eight years doing this stuff.
I wasn’t always that way.
Before I started doing affiliate marketing, I was a car mechanic.
I was working a really difficult job.
I was working long hours but not much money at all.
I left school and did an apprenticeship with Volkswagen as a trainee, I went through that and became a fully Qualified car mechanic.
Eventually I just got so sick of going into work.
In the morning, I was going to work at like seven o’clock in the morning and by nine o’clock I was up to my elbows in oil and grease.
I just had enough of it.
What I really wanted to do is have a lot more freedom in my life.
As you may or not be aware, I’m from the UK.
I’m a Southampton football club supporter and have a season ticket with them. (something I could never have afforded in my former occupation!)
I follow them a lot and go to most of the games, home games, some away games as well. Like the game below.
I’ve also got another passion, which is motocross racing.
I love motocross racing.
I’ve never done it professionally or anything like that but I really love adrenaline sports and all that kind of crazy stuff.
And really what I wanted to do was have more time and more freedom to indulge in to those passions, which was football, following Southampton and motocross racing.
So I was looking for ways that would enable me to leave that job.
Just like YOU are now.
As you can see my website is called “sideline affiliate”.
You might want to have a sideline supplementary income from Affiliate Marketing that can run alongside your day job which you can just plug away for a few hours in the evening and have a sideline income until you have enough to finally quit your job.
Well, good news! ..that’s exactly what I did in 2012.
A sideline income for me, back then, was I just wanted to make an extra £100 a week, £100-£200 pounds a week. (or if you’re in america that’s about $250- $300).
And by the way, with a bit of hard work and commitment, that is VERY achievable with Affiliate Marketing.
Especially if you promote the right, high paying programs.
That’s all I wanted to make on top of my job.
I started really small, and from there, it just exploded.
But one thing that I want to just throw out there to you right now is this affiliate marketing is not going to make you rich tomorrow.
It’s not a get rich quick, overnight.
I’m assuming that you are going to have a job right now and you’re just looking for a sideline supplementary income.
If that’s you, then you’re in the right place, you’re in the right spot here.
If you’re looking for something that’s gonna be a get rich quick scheme, make a whole bunch of money overnight, then you’re in the wrong place.
Affiliate marketing takes work and dedication.
With that being said, read what I’ve written here about the TRUTH about Affiliate Marketing and making money online.
