Today I’m talking with Alejandro who is a 6 figure affiliate marketer that lives in a van! He flew all the way from Utah to Austin and I couldn’t be more stoked to learn more about his online journey!
Follow along in this blog-style post while I ask Alejandro questions about how he got to where he is today.
Q: Where are you from? How did you get started?
A: “It all starts in California. I was in the navy and got out about two and half years ago, give or take. My girlfriend then introduced me to the CEO of the company I now do affiliate marketing for and we became really good buddies. Ironically, he lived in a van too. We got to talking and eventually even hit the road with his dogs and him in the van. I fell in love with the freedom and lifestyle he had. At the time, my girlfriend and I didn’t know exactly what he did, but we knew that we wanted to live a similar lifestyle.
Covid had just hit and my girlfriend had to close her really successful gym she had in San Diego. I was fresh out of the navy with no money in the bank. It became apparent pretty quickly that we had to figure out what to do.
That’s when our friend finally told us what he did. In short, he automates e-commerce sites for large companies like Amazon and Walmart. I was really intrigued by this. He cut us a good deal off of his service price and dove in headfirst. After a few months, we began to make our money back and our income became almost one hundred percent passive.
Soon enough, my buddy mentioned me being an affiliate for him. I had heard of affiliate marketing before but wasn’t familiar by any means. I did my research and started to understand the power of the hustle, especially when selling high-ticket items like the ones my buddy offered.
After that first payout, I was hooked. In my first or second month, I had made more from affiliate marketing than I did all year in the navy. We ended up buying the van off of him, adopted the nomad lifestyle, fell in love with making money online, and the rest is history.
