About

I suppose there are a few things I’ll brag to my grandkids about.

- I was selling ebooks before Amazon ever did. (I figure that’ll be impressive in 40 years time)…

- My last “real job” was at Domino’s Pizza, at age 18. (I hope this one is still true in 40 years time)…

- I was living and working remotely, with no fixed location before it was cool. (because in 40 years that WON’T be cool anymore)…

Granted, other things I may withhold…

- I may not tell them that my first “business” online was using software to make spam websites for Adsense income (Dear The Internet, I’m sorry – Andrew)

- And I may not tell them that my first ever educational course was titled “Niche Marketing On Crack“. (Offending people consistently since 2007). Disclaimer: I have no knowledge of or experience with “Crack”.

Nonetheless, those grandkids – I hope – will know me as part of a small group of people who were the first in history to make the process of “building businesses on the internet” or “digital entrepreneurship” into a whole career, and a whole life.

Right Now…

I’m the co-founder of the Rankings Institute, which I am confident is the best SEO coaching program on the internet. I run affiliate sites and I do consulting on SEO, affiliate marketing, landing pages, sales funnels & generally selling the heck out of stuff online.

This year it’s been…

9 Years Selling Stuff Online

9 years doing affiliate marketing. 9 years doing SEO. 7 years teaching others my strategies with ebooks, tutorial videos, software & coaching programs.

But what this really means is 9 years without a boss. 9 years waking up at 10am instead of 6am (often not going to bed until 4am but forget that). 9 years setting my own holidays, picking my own hours, choosing when I work, and where I work.

And the glimmer of being able to live this way hasn’t worn off. If you’ll allow me my soapbox for only a second, I’ll tell you that I believe everyone deserves a similar relationship to their work; A relationship that includes freedom, flexibility, opportunity for challenge, and ample time for leisure and learning. And I think the future will allow more and more opportunities for such relationships with work to be forged…

For those who are looking. But I digress.

On a personal note…

I’m an Australian citizen, a UK resident, and I feel most suited to life in Spain.

I love to travel, and I hate irresponsible pet owners.

More than anything else, I’m fortunate to have met and married a wise and beautiful woman who was both crazy enough and capable enough to want to live the nomadic, digital entrepreneur’s life with me.

Oh and we’re having a baby.  January. If you want to tell me about how little sleep we’re going to get, I have a special form for that.

You’ll find my blog interesting if…

a) You are trying to build a business and an income of your own online. Affiliate marketing and making money from small websites is my expertise.

b) You sell stuff now, and you want to sell more of it, leveraging digital strategy.

I’ll happily talk your ear off about Search Engine Optimization, affiliate marketing, email marketing, digital sales funnels…

Or if all that’s boring, I’m just as happy to discuss literature, 90s hip hop, or single malt Whisky.
