Hello, my name is Charlie Longo and I have been making a living from home using the Internet for the past five years. I started out i the corporate world fresh out of college. I worked in various areas of the financial industry from working as an assistant to a financial adviser, to working in a back office for multiple financial adviser firms. My last venture into the financial world was actually working for a mutual fund company. After putting in years of service and not really getting anywhere I thought their had to be a better way.
I started to learn a bit about web design and build my first product review site. I was reviewing different financial products that dealt with investing since that was where my background was originally. I did not even realize I could generate income from reviewing products at the time…I just put up the site as I wanted people to learn about what products were good and which ones were a waste of money. Someone selling a financial product actually contacted me and asked if I wanted to be an affiliate and write a review about their product.
My introduction to affiliate marketing had began I an learned how I could actually start generating some passive income online just by writing product reviews and making product recommendations. I signed up as an affiliate for other financial products on commission junction and I was actually starting to make an average of $15.00 a day which isn’t a lot but it was enough to pay for my lunch each day instead of coming out of my pocket. Over time, I built a bunch of small affiliate sites, a few sites that generated income from ad networks, and even came up with a few products myself that I would sell and contract with affiliates for.
Today I generate a decent living online and have been working for myself for the past couple of years. I love my life and being able to come and go as I please. It’s great only having to answer to myself and being able to work from anywhere in the world.
