ROTE 006: Jeremy Schoemaker and the “ShoeMoney” Brand

Affiliate marketing is how many of us got our starts online. The concept of getting paid money to run a business and never have to deal with customers, transactions and inventory is a dream come true — and it’s also a business that can be run from anywhere and require little to no investment.

Thinking back, it’s also quite an amazing industry as well when you don’t need any education, degrees or even need to be of age to make money! I first started making money online when I was 15 and I was quietly working with billion dollar companies from a desk in my parents house. How crazy is that!

Yes my friends, affiliate marketing is quite amazing and it’s helped launched some amazing businesses and entrepreneurs along the way.

This is exactly what we are going to be talking about in the latest episode of the Rise of the Entrepreneur.

Rise of the Entrepreneur – Episode 6 with Jeremy Schoemaker

Jeremy Schoemaker Shoemoney Check

One of the most famous names to come out of affiliate marketing is Jeremy Schoemaker, also known as “ShoeMoney”.

Many people are already familiar with Shoemoney and especially his $132,994.97 Google Adsense check. If you’ve ever done anything in affiliate marketing, you’ve probably already come across his blog at or even ran into him at any of the major affiliate / internet marketing events.

A lot has changed for Jeremy over the years. He’s made the progression from an affiliate marketer to creating his own sites and businesses (also selling several of them), and now focusing his efforts on his PAR Program. During the process he’s also launched his own book “Nothing’s Changed But My Change” and become an best seller.
