$576.05 Direct Deposited Into My Account on Autopilot

A little over 2 weeks ago I wrote a post about how I made $458.95 while I was moving and completely ignoring my online business. Well, shortly after posting that I abandoned my business again because a friend was visiting. Now that I’m back to my normal routine after her visit, I was surprised for the second time to discover I made another $117.40 on autopilot!

Months prior to this point in time I began building my online business. I pushed through months and months of having no sales. Spending a little time per day to build the foundation while simultaneously trusting the process. It was a bit of a mental battle, but now I’m seeing why that time was NOT wasted whatsoever.

If you’re thinking about starting a business yourself, I highly encourage you to start! I was always so overwhelmed with the idea of it and pushed it to the side. It may be cliche to say, but I really do wish I had started way sooner. Take everything 1 step at a time – watch a YouTube video about how to get started, pick up a book about what type of business you want to run, connect with others via social media to get their stories.

The greatest lesson I’ve learned from building my own online business through 12 Minute Affiliate is to believe in yourself. The universe has a magical way of working in your favor once you start to trust your actions. Manifest your success and you will become successful.


Do you believe in yourself? Are you trying to start making money online? I couldn’t have the success I’m experiencing now without using 12 Minute Affiliate as a tool! This program has set everything up for me to start making more money at one time than I could have ever expected.

You never know how you can change your life until you try!

I Made $458.95 Without Even Noticing

They’ve been telling me to trust the process and be patient. I was starting to lose hope, then I landed my first up-sell of almost $500. The best part, I haven’t been working on it for the past month!

Okay… I know. I’ve been M.I.A. for the past few weeks. As some of you know, one of my newest goals was to write a blog post at least once a week. I also know I shouldn’t make excuses, but I moved pretty abruptly into my own apartment on the 1st of June so I’ve been extremely busy getting set up.

I’m finally wrapping up the process of moving and feel rested from the countless hours of putting things together and getting used to living alone. Side note: it’s totally a skill.

With that being said, I had to take some time off from my affiliate marketing business. To get back into the swing of my affiliate marketing business, I started seeking some motivation. My plan was to log in and see if anything has happened from my follow up emails. BAM! I made $458.95 last week.

Almost immediately I was smacked in the face with the motivation I sought! Without doing much while moving, I made almost $500 by trusting the process and allowing my subscribers to go through my follow-up sequence.

As you can see by my screenshots, I haven’t been making sales for a few weeks and was feeling extremely discouraged. I’ve been mentally pushing through the doubt. I’ve been putting in the small steps per day to grow it (for the 3 months prior to moving). I’ve been believing in myself.

And this is what happens when you believe in yourself.

Building Passive Income In Less Than 30 Minutes Per Day

If you aren’t making money online while stuck in quarantine, you’re making a huge mistake! There is more time than ever to learn a new skill and put it to the test – especially for money. As a social media marketing manager, I’ve studied various ways of getting a message out to an audience via the internet. It wasn’t until I stumbled upon affiliate marketing when I started feeling like success was right at my fingertips.

At the start of the year, I had no job. I was spending hours a day sending out my resume, writing cover letters, and submitting proposals for freelance jobs. When I felt I ran out of applications to fill out, I began spending time researching other ways to make money from home. It has always been my goal to be my own boss and be able to make money without being tied down to a location. Once I began signing a few clients, I took some bigger steps into affiliate marketing by focusing in on one product – 12 Minute Affiliate.

First, let me explain what I’ve come to learn affiliate marketing is. It’s basically email marketing to sell someone else’s product in exchange for commissions. You’re essentially an email salesperson. And one way you can do that is by getting traffic to a website to opt-in to your emails list. If they choose to give you their email address, they will receive offers from you through a series of automated emails (that’s how you can make passive income from it) containing your affiliate links. Once someone pulls out their card and purchases a product through your link, you make money!

12 Minute Affiliate is a program designed by Devon Brown, an incredibly successful affiliate marketer, to help beginner affiliate marketers start making money online. This (mostly) done-for-you system sets you up with a variety of sales-funnel websites to get people to opt-in to your list, 80 emails containing your affiliate link to the program, and instructions how to set it all up. I’ve been using it for a few weeks and there are definitely some good things, but some things I wasn’t completely happy about.

After you set it up, then what? You have to start getting traffic to your opt-in page. You can get free traffic by sharing the URL to your social media, in a blog post, in a forum, a YouTube video with the link in the description, etc. Unfortunately, this could be tough if you don’t have many followers – you’re not going to get much traffic.

Good news is you can buy your traffic through the program, but I wouldn’t recommend. I didn’t feel like the traffic and opt-ins I purchased through 12 Minute Affiliate were genuine. Luckily, there are other sites, like Udimi, where you can buy traffic for way cheaper and seems way more legit. Anyways, once you purchase visitors to your opt-in page, you just sit back and wait for them to opt-in and start receiving your automated emails.

Bad news is it’s kinda like gambling and requires patience, trust, and risk. Sometimes a person may not actually purchase until weeks, even months after they started receiving your emails. It’s completely a numbers game so the more traffic you get, the more opt-ins. The more opt-ins, the bigger your audience. The bigger your audience, the greater your chance of getting a sale. That’s pretty much just how it works.

You have to look at it as an investment. In some ways, it’s like buying stocks, but a different type of game. You could start today, buy 100 visitors and get a few people to purchase and you start making a profit on your first day. OR… you can start today and it take a few months and traffic orders before you see any results.

If you’re a marketer, writer, communications guru, a salesperson, or someone who knows they can spend less than 30 minutes a week copying and pasting emails to broadcast to your list, as well as purchase traffic, 12 Minute Affiliate is definitely for you! It’s a great stepping stone to learn about affiliate marketing and how you can start making passive income from anywhere you’re connected to the internet.

It’s perfect if you’re just looking to try something new. I mean, we’re stuck inside for who-knows how long, might as well start building. The sooner you start, the sooner you’ll see money in your bank without lifting a finger.

I do have to say, you do have to commit to it. It’s not a huge commitment and you can do it at your own pace – on your own time. Building multiple streams of income, especially during this time, is a no brainer in my opinion. If I learned everything on my own, through books, YouTube videos, and 12 Minute Affiliate‘s training videos, you totally can too!

You never know how you can change your life until you try!

Making My First Dollar Online

Never did I ever think I would be able to make money online. Yes, the internet has grown tremendously over the past decade and I have been working from my laptop as a Social Media Marketing Manager over the past 5 years, but I always believed I had to have a client or a boss to make money online. This concept was completely challenged when I found out I could make money marketing other people’s products, while also being my own boss.

I was laid off on December 31, 2019 from my previous role as Social Media Marketing Manager. It wasn’t because I was doing a bad job, it was because the company I worked for couldn’t afford to pay me for my services – no hard feelings at all. As a freelancer, I’m used to this, especially the inconsistency and instability of work. Anyways, I looked at this as an opportunity to branch out, look for a new client, and even learn something new in the process. With that being said, over the past month I have been learning about Clickbank, an affiliate marketing database that allows digital marketers to scale vendors’ businesses, as well as build their own stream of income for doing so.

I started my journey with Clickbank by reading their free ebook – 7 Steps To Turn Your PASSION Into An Online Business. These steps highlight:

  1. Discovering Your Passion
  2. Determining Market Fit and Potential
  3. Creating an Avatar
  4. Building a Following
  5. Building a List of Prospective Buyers
  6. Monetizing Your Audience
  7. Scaling Your Profits

The ebook goes into more details about each of these steps. I followed each of them, utilizing the advice given to pinpoint how I would like to kick-start my affiliate marketing business.

For those of you who don’t know, I have taught gymnastics for over 10 years now. I loved learning new skills to then be able to help others learn them. Sometimes, students would get to my level of skill; therefore, I would have to learn new skills so I can then teach them. After reflecting on this, I determined I wanted to take this concept and apply it to digital marketing – affiliate marketing to be specific. I utilized the steps mentioned above to conclude that my passion is to learn how to make money online for myself, but also extend this knowledge to help others do so as well.

Honestly, this month has been a struggle for me. I’ve spent hours on YouTube learning about how Clickbank works and the fastest ways to be successful. YouTube is a great tool to utilize to learn a new skill, but there is a lot of content on there which sometimes left me confused and unsure which I should focus on. That’s when I decided to sign up for Clickbank University. Experts designed a course to teach people how to make their first sale online using Clickbank, which can then be applied to generate hundreds, even thousands, of sales using their marketplace.

I’ve been waiting to generate my first sale to share any of this because I didn’t want to tell people about it until I saw my own results. I needed to believe in it before encouraging others to as well. I couldn’t be more excited to share this with you all – I’m one step closer to fulfilling my passion! If you would like to make money online, click here to get the ebook, as well as to learn the way I did, to start earning money online. I know this process will be way more fun with some friends by my side!

If you have any questions, I’d be so happy to help! Shoot me an email to tom@ontomoftheworld.com or send me a message on Instagram (@ontomoftheworld).

My Start as a Social Media Manager and Digital Marketer for CANZ Westbury

I went to Hofstra University for 4 years straight. We, Hofstra students, had the strip of bars for a while and they were awful, but we couldn’t resist going there. Unfortunately, we were left without a place to hang out by the end of my 3rd year as a student there. At that point, I was 21 years old and ready to go to a bar without having any issues. It wasn’t until December 2017, towards the end of my first semester of my senior year, when I found the chillest bar I’ve ever stepped into: CANZ.

My sister got hired and was training one day in December when I decided to pay a visit. I walked in and was immediately drawn to it. It was the perfect mix of a bar and grill; music was bumping and the drinks were great, while people still sat down and enjoyed a meal. It was like McHebes with tables to sit at. Lit.

After a few visits, I wanted to be part of the fun and business. I was a Marketing major and focusing on going down the Social Media Marketing route. I checked out their Instagram and Facebook pages and, to be brutally honest, I was appalled. They were posting low-quality pictures of basically nothing with captions such as, “Holllla!” Not even I could take it seriously. I took it upon myself to contact their management team with an interest in helping out with their social media presence. Within a day, I was asked to come in to discuss a job opportunity.

When I began, I didn’t have much responsibility. I wasn’t given any direction – I was only given the log ins for each of their accounts. I wasn’t getting paid anything but I was okay with it – I looked at it as an “internship” opportunity. I wasn’t even posting for them – I only edited their captions and threw some hashtags on their posts. But because they were still posting unprofessionally, I started stressing out that they’re making themselves look a fraction of how cool the restaurant really is.

The obstacle was they didn’t want to take the one person who was doing their social media off of it. By the end of January, I stopped helping out. I would catch myself laying in bed unable to fall asleep because I was thinking of ideas they could do to make their pages better and I was always checking to see if there were things misspelt. I couldn’t stress out about it when they didn’t even give me any direction or tasks.

A few weeks later, the owner of CANZ Westbury called me in to discuss their social media pages. Long story short, I was hired as the Social Media Manager and Digital Marketer for CANZ shortly after I had taken a step back from it.

Since the beginning of February, I’ve been working on managing their social media accounts and running advertisements through Facebook and Instagram. I’ve learned a lot in such a short amount of time in this role. I’m beyond grateful for the opportunity CANZ has given me – I’m turning what I do for them into my own personal business.

As with any job, there’s always more to learn. I’m beyond grateful for the experiences and knowledge I’ve obtained through CANZ and I cannot wait to see where it takes me in my online business.
