A few years ago, 3 Super affiliates (Mr. Green, Stackman, Besmir) started a private forum for affiliate marketers. There are plenty of free affiliate marketing forums out there, but they saw an opportunity for a closed off community.
As you know, there are a lot of secrets in affiliate marketing. As much as I’ve shared on this blog, there’s a ton of subjects I don’t write about because I don’t feel comfortable sharing in such a public setting. A place like STM lets me talk about campaigns on a deeper level, and it has been a great way for me to network with other affiliates. (hint: if you’re a newbie who wants to Skype mastermind with other affiliates, this is where you can do it)
I’ve been posting there for a few years now and they invited me to be a part of their new Thought Council. You can think of it as their “hall of fame” in a way. A nice benefit is they plan on hosting private masterminds at each conference to talk about the state of affiliate marketing.
Here’s what the STM Thought council is in Mr. Green’s words.
“STM is now the largest and most tight knit premium affiliate marketing community hands down.
There have been a whooping 175,000 posts since STM started 3.5 years ago.
The membership base is made up of some insanely talented people. However, there have been a few that have been a few STMers who have shone above the rest and really contributed in a big way to STM. So we have decide to put together the STM Global Thought Leaders Council, where we acknowledge these STMers and their tremendous contributions..
I will be announcing the first STM Thought Leaders this week, along with their stories of how they got to where they are today. Their stories are pretty amazing. **Hint the first few guys will all be speaking at STM London.”
I’m proud to be a part of this group since STM is a great community.
Mr. Green wanted me to write a detailed backstory on my affiliate marketing journey. Well…I already wrote an 8 part biography on that.
But people have been asking me for one more chapter for the past year. What happened after I created that $500 profit campaign?
I share a little on how I turned that campaign from $500 profit the first day, to $100,000+ profit a day within a few months. I don’t like talking about how much money I’ve made so I hope this can motivate some of you guys to take action.
Wait until next month and I’ll post a detailed review of StackThatMoney, and I’ll review some other paid affiliate marketing forums as well. I think private forums can be valuable and I want to help you make the best decision.
You should read the stories of the other STM Thought Leaders so far: Benjamin Yong (talks about how he had to overcome a difficult childhood), Tim Tetra (this man takes the “affiliate lifestyle” to the extreme). I asked Mr. Green, and he claims you don’t have to be Asian to be on the Thought Council.
StackThatMoney will be hosting their annual meet up in London next year (March 2015). It’s free and open to non-members of the forum so start making your plans. I will be speaking along with 15+ other high quality speakers. I’m a competitive man so trust me that I will bring the heat.
