I am soon to be a Full Time Internet Marketer

Well, it's almost 3 years since I took my first steps in Internet Marketing and joined SFI and the Plug-In Profit Site.

I'm please to say that starting on Friday 1st June I will become a full time Internet Marketer!

It has taken me almost 3 years, but it has certainly been worth the effort. My first four months or so were pretty fruitless, as I learned the ropes, advertised somewhat unsuccessfully and gained experience through trial and error.

After about 4 months I began to see some light at the end of the tunnel and started to make a small profit.

Last year I took the plunge and cut down my working hours at my day job (I'm in the software development industry) and at the moment, it's lunchtime on a Monday at work and I'm counting the hours until the end of a week when I wave goodbye to the workplace, hopefully for good! I'm so excited :-)

At the moment I am receiving the majority of my income from the Plug-In Profit Site. This is the opportunity that helped me to learn about internet marketing. It is thanks to the top affiliate programs that make up the Plug-In Profit Site and the residual income of these programs I am able to make the transition to a full time work at home internet marketer.

In addition to this I also have a few sites in different niches. I have a travel site, a site on which I sell my own E-Book on Florence, a Yoga site, a wedding site and various small adsense sites. I plan to continue promoting these sites, add a few more to the collection and also spend some time doing website updates and SEO related consultancy for webmasters.

They say that 95% of people fail in affiliate marketing, but I encourage people who are seeing no results in the intial few months to stick with it. Keep trying different things and learn from all the great internet Marketing forums on the web. Perseverance certainly pays in this business!

Review of the IAHBE (International Association of Home Business Entrepreneurs)

I have been a member of the International Association of Home Business Entrepreneurs(IAHBE) for 3 years now and have found it to be an invaluable resource for the latest home business related news, tutorials, tips sofware and books, as well as a great way to get your hands on a number of valuable books, audios and software for free!


The IAHBE was launched back in January 2002 and has thousands of members from all over the world.

I've put together a brief FAQ style review of the IAHBE so you can decide whether or not it is the right home business resource for you.

What are the benefits of an IAHBE membership?

The general benefit of the IAHBE is the huge wealth of information and resources for your home business. Your membership includes the following:

1) An Intropak worth over $1000
Everyone who joins the IAHBE receives a pack of information, gifts and discounts worth over $1000. At the time of writing this includes:
  • A free book "The Home Business Revolution's Greatest Entrepreneurs"
  • A free subscription to the Home Business Connection magazine
  • A free audio cassette "Underpaid and Overtaxed?"
  • Free 30 day trial of Affiliate Mastery
  • 15 Free Leads
  • Five books by Fortune Now author and world renowned business speaker and trainer, Tom "Big Al" Schreiter for the price of one
  • Generous Discounts on various other books, advertising, business cards and more

2) Access to the IAHBE Learning Center
This is a huge password protected collection of articles, audio tutorials, seminars, home business E-Books, software for PCs & Macs, marketing courses and various other tools to help you with your home business and it includes both US specific information and international information.

3) Freebies each month
The IAHBE membership also includes physical freebies each month. For example, this month the membership included a book worth $26 "The New Culture of Desire" by Melinda Davis and a year's subscription to the magazine "PC Magazine" worth $131!

Are there any drawbacks?

Although the majority of the resources in the IAHBE membership can be used by anyone regardless of their location, the free magazine subscriptions are generally only available to US residents and the free books have a higher shipping charge for those who are not based in the US. Despite this, there is still enough there for international members to make their membership worthwhile.

What is the cost?

The cost of the IAHBE membership is $29.95 per month. If you are a member of SFI this will also qualify you as an Executive Affiliate (EA) for the lifetime of your membership.

Are there any guarantees?

There is a 30 day money back guarantee. If you don't like what you see you can just cancel your membership within 30 days, no questions asked and receive a full refund.

How do I sign up?

Just visit IAHBE or become a member of SFI and purchase the IAHBE through the affiliate store.
