The Number One Thing that I’m doing to earn an Income Online

I’ve done a number of things over the years to earn affiliate commissions. Some of them still work well and bring in money every month (In one case since 2007) and others have fallen by the wayside.

Building a system to generate commissions can be quite simple, but putting all the moving parts together isn’t. Neither is selecting the platform to run it on, or integrating the different components that make up the funnel. Finally, selecting proven offers (preferably with recurring commissions) is time consuming.

So when I came across the Massive Affiliate Blueprint from James Neville Taylor, I instantly recognised the potential and became a member.

It’s a complete DFY system that only requires traffic sending to it to work. There’s comprehensive training on this in the members area and a very lively and helpful VIP Facebook group.

Whilst the value is far in excess of the entry price (it’s a one off with no upsells), it’s not cheap. For those people who want to dip their toe in the water, there’s a light verion called Simple Affiliate Blueprint.

Whichever option you go for, you won’t be disappointed and I’ll see you on the inside.


There are a lot of moving parts required to build a system that has both squeeze pages and web pages, includes blazing fast hosting, collects email addresses and automatically sends emails, can host courses and take payments, has membership areas and more.

But there’s one system that combines everything that’s required in one very affordable package and that’s Builderall.


Aweber – I’ve had an account with Aweber since 2004. For some time the functionality lagged the new entrants in terms of segmentation but they’ve caught up. Still my go to Autoresponder for deliverability. Click here for their guide – how to grow your business with Email marketing.

GetResponse – Another that I’ve had an account with for many years. Simple to use and they’re a bit less fussy about content tha Aweber are.

Convertkit – marketers that I respect use Convertkit and I’m looking at moving my lists to them. They have a free account for up to 1,000 subscribers and they offer a free migration service if you want to move your lists from your existing provider.


I currently host around 30 websites and I’ve used a number of hosting companies over the years. In mid 2019 I switched from Siteground to Guru Hosting. I’d had some issues with outages with Siteground which didn’t get resolved to my satisfaction. The switch to Guru Hosting was simple and I saw an immediate improvement in load times. Not had any problems with them.

In the past, I’ve also used hosting from Hostgator (not recommended), Namecheap, Bluehost, Knownhost and Heart Internet. Happy with where I am currently.

Website Backups

This happened to me, and it happens to everyone eventually. Your website breaks, either because it was hacked or there was an internal issue. You contact your web host to get the site back up and running and they refuse. Either they don’t actually keep backups, or thay deem your (possibly hacked) site to be a security risk. If, as in my case, your website was earning you an income, it’s panic time.

For that reason, I have a simple system that backs up all of my websites automatically to my Dropbox account. So if there are problems that my webhost can’t or won’t sort out, I can easily do so. The software that I use is called UpdraftPlus and it’s never failed me. It’s also useful for cloning sites that you build as a template to use on new sites.
