In late 2008 I got involved with Internet Marketing. I started out building affiliate sites and was semi-successful but then Mike Filsaime gave me a chance to own Butterfly Marketing. When I started going through his course it really struck me…
I knew the membership site had to be about something I was interested in and, although Internet Marketing was the obvious choice, at the time I didn’t know enough about the subject to begin teaching other people. Instead, I decided to focus on software. What tool or application could I create that would solve a problem faced by Internet Marketers?
Soon after I purchased Butterfly Marketing, I became a subscriber to MDC and I read an article about outsourcing. Next thing I know, I’m taking Mike’s advice and selling my truck to raise the capital to build my own product.
I went to work solving a problem. Eliminate the time-intensive process of Social Bookmarking and Directory Submissions by automating the work with software! Simple yet ingenious!
I’ll be honest; it wasn’t easy to accomplish this goal. It took me a long time and quite a bit of money but within just two months of launching my new membership software site I had received 10,000 opt-ins, many of whom upgraded to the paid level. My company now makes over $ 1,000 per day and I’m receiving a steady stream of new opt-ins. I’m also proud to say that my membership site has since become a recommended product in the annual “30 Day Challenge” (www.thirtydaychallenge.com)
Making the decision to sell my truck and devote all my time and energy into this project wasn’t easy to do but the rewards are amazing. I work only for myself and I only work the hours that are convenient for me. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still a lot of work, but any time I need a day off or want to go for a walk with the wife… I can!
And that’s my story! You can check out my site at www.traffic-bug.com.

I went from zero knowledge of Internet Marketing to having a $ 500,000+ online business in just one year. Mike Filsaime is a big reason for that so smack him in the arm and tell him thanks
