ROTE 054: Annie Coryat and the Constant Change of the Internet

In the world of online marketing and the internet… there is only one constant — and that’s that things will always change.

When I first started making money online back in 1995, I was focusing on creating content sites and earning commissions through the affiliate program. Next I moved into email marketing and pushing affiliates offers on a CPA basis. Shortly after that I was creating my own sites, but instead of pushing affiliate offers, I was actually doing my own lead gen and building a mailing list in the process.

As you can see, staying ahead of the game and always knowing what’s next is key to building a successful business on the internet.

All of this and more in the latest episode of the Rise of the Entrepreneur.
