What My Great Grandmother Taught Me About Affiliate Marketing

May 13, 2008
My Great Grandmother, Mathilda, arrived in California in 1850 with her parents and three older brothers. She was only 17 years old. Her family was among the estimated 300,000 Americans and foreigners who came to the Western state in search of gold.

The story that was passed through generations in my family insists that Mathilda, without any help, found one of the richest gold fields in Sierra Nevada. There is another story about her scandalous love affair with a handsome yet married man, who subsequently fathered my great grandfather. But we'll talk about that some other time.

Mathilda, as you can imagine, was a hell of a woman. The unbelievable fortune she had made in 1852 in California was all lost by her grandson, my grandfather, in 1929 in New York, when the stock exchange crashed. Fortunately, she did not live to see it.

"Why are you telling me your family's history?" I can almost hear you asking me now, "What does your grandmother have to do with affiliate marketing?" You'll know soon, my friend. Don't lose your patience.

An estimated 300,000 people, man, women and children, went to California in the middle of the 19th century, in search of fortunes. Only few of them discovered gold and became rich. Those were the ones who did not miss on the opportunity when it presented itself to them; then, they were blessed with the guts to take chances on the road to realize their dreams; and finally, they acquired the knowledge and the tools to achieve their goal. My great grandmother, Mathilda, was amongst them. She left us a great legacy: "He who dares - conquers."

This, my friend, is all there is to it. Affiliate marketing on the Internet is the Gold Rush of the 21st century. Don't miss out on your chance to be one of the few. Take hold of the opportunity today, before it's too late. If you want to fulfill your wish to strike gold, have courage, find the information and the tools, and go hunt it!

The Internet is already very developed and overwhelming, but it is still so very young. It is now as the West has been in the 1850's, paved with hidden gold. But today you don't need a pan and a shovel and you don't need to invest hard physical work, you can sit on the sofa with your laptop on your lap. Only the gold is still the same glittering gold. Anybody can find it, you too.

Now is the time. Don't wake up 5 or 10 years from now regretting your failure to spot the occasion on time. Don't forget Mathilda: "She who dares - conquers."
