Where would we be without affiliate marketing? One thing is for sure… and that’s that you wouldn’t be reading this blog or the podcast you are about to listen to!
Affiliate marketing has not only changed the way business and brands do business on the internet, but it’s also paved way for individuals of all facets of life to start a business of their own. Affiliate marketing offers a gateway to the business world that we have never seen before. There is no education or age requirement (though you are supposed to be 18), and the cost to get started is more about time and effort than money.
This is exactly what we are going to be talking about in the latest episode of the Rise of the Entrepreneur… the birth of affiliate marketing and how it’s greatly changed everything about online marketing over the past 20 years.
Brad Waller is the Vice Presidents of Affiliate and Business Development for ePage.com, and has been for nearly the past 20 years!
I first met Brad back in 2001 while speaking at the AffiliateForce conference in Miami, which was actually on a cruise. Since then Brad and I have been part of a tight niche group of affiliate marketers who were in this game from the beginning and still benefiting from it all today.
In addition to everything else that Brad has been doing in the affiliate marketing space for the past 20 years, he’s also been working on mobile apps, helping out in the education space and also enjoying his passion for cars.
