Starting with Medium

In my quest for online income in 2020, I left no stone unturned.

Fiverr? Check. And it paid off—$2,000 in the bank—until an abrupt email warned of account closure without verification.

Amazon KDP? Yep, there was cash flow until I got the boot for mysterious reasons.

These setbacks taught me a crucial online truth: a loyal audience is the bedrock of a stable income.

So, I put effort into building my personal brand across the board: Instagram. YouTube. Blogging. TikTok.

I was on the brink of giving up when Medium caught my eye.

Imagine my surprise when, just three months down the line, I had amassed more than 13,000 followers!

I was selective with the affiliate programs I championed, leveraging every bit of my accumulated online marketing prowess:

• Skillful copywriting • Engaging content creation • Maximizing conversion rates • Constructing effective sales funnels

Three months into this endeavor, and I've got it down. With different AI tools to make your life easier, more efficient, and more productive, there is nothing I haven’t tried!

Take one affiliate program, for instance: I've managed to refer over 225 sign-ups and landed substantial commissions in return.

Not to mention the sweet $150 bonus for my standout performance in October.

Each affiliate program I've chosen to share with my Medium audience has been a conscious choice, aiming to marry profitability with value.
