In today’s interview on MMO Blogger, we talk to Emir Gulderen. He’s a 23-year-old from Skopje, Macedonia.
He’s an entrepreneur, speaker and author and founder of Affilister and Internet Marketing Accelerate.
He’s known as “The Underground Master of Sales” (that’s what his clients and students like to call me). Part of it is because he knows a thing or two about converting traffic to sales.
He believes that if you can learn traffic generation and conversions, when you can drive a lot of quality traffic to a campaign and turn that into profit, you’ve got it made. You can make as much money as you can imagine. And that’s what I’ve been doing pretty much for the past 5 years or so. I feel blessed to be able to crack the code to being successful with internet marketing.
1. What got you interested in online marketing? Share your story.
After graduating from high school, I got employed in a construction firm in Pristina. I started working as a translator in English. However, I quickly realized I wasn’t going to be able to provide myself and my family the lifestyle they deserve working for someone else. So I decided to turn to the internet to find a solution.
I started doing internet marketing in 2010 and failed MISERABLY for the first two years. In fact, I wasted more than $5,000 on products and business opportunities that never worked.
After investing $5,000 of my hard-earned money on ads and different systems promising the moon and not making a single dollar in return, I realized that what I was doing wasn’t working. It was pretty miserable and frustrating at the same time.
Two years later, I found myself a mentor. It wasn’t cheap, in fact, I had to pay a few grand to learn from this guy… But it was worth every penny!
Because in just three months, my income jumped to $10,000 per month.
And the rest, as they say, is history.
2. In terms of product ideas, how do you come up with most of the product ideas?
I create products based on what the market wants. If there is a demand on the market for a particular product, I sit down – hire the best copywriters, video agencies and developers to create a product that people would be gladly willing to pay for.
My success comes down to good market research. I have a great relationship with my followers. I’m a good listener too, so before I advise them to do anything, I ask questions and listen. They usually give their best pain points and based on those, I come up with product ideas that will solve their main pain points. It would be pretty silly to work 10 hours a day creating a product, that you’re not sure if anyone would be interested or willing to buy.
3. What are 2 or 3 tips you could share with others who plan to release a new internet marketing product in 2017?
I think creating an internet marketing product requires experience. People who usually create coaching programs and training programs in the Make Money Online niche should be people who are already successful and are making money doing it. We already have too many products that are purely based on old free PLR reports that can be found on the internet. They rewrite them, add a few fancy graphics and sell it as a new product.
If I was to launch a new product, I would do good market research to see if there is demand for my product. I would create a list of people who are interested in that particular topic and ask them what they need help with.
I usually do this via webinars, Skype calls, and email follow-ups.
Based on their requirements, I would find the perfect idea for my product. That would be an easily sell because imagine you have an early bird list of subscribers who are eagerly waiting for your product. How hard would it be to sell it to them? Yep, you guessed it. Super easy.
4. What gave you the idea to create Affilister Blueprint?
I think I answered this pretty much in the last two questions. But another reason why I created Affilister was to inspire and educate people who are leading the blind.
There is definitely hell lot of garbage in our industry and I wanted to make something different. Something that is based on real results and years of experience. Something that really works.
We don’t only teach Affiliate Marketing and Internet Marketing, but we’re creating a positive change in the market. Positively influencing people to stop doing shady marketing and start doing the necessary things that although might look simple and are generally overlooked, but get results.
No matter how simple it might look, we want to make sure that when you follow along and implement it – you see results. That’s our goal with this program. We want everyone to be able to start seeing success with internet marketing.
5. What are the benefits of Affilister Blueprint?
With Affilister you’re getting my knowledge and 6 years of experience in Internet Marketing put together in one simple membership site. On top of the step-by-step training videos that people will receive, they will be able to contact me on Skype and ask me their questions.
It gets very easy to achieve something when there’s someone who has done it before you teach you how to do it.
We have many people who were brand new and got started with us, who have now made their first sales online. And many others who were able to quit their job and start doing internet marketing full-time.
And hopefully, we’ll have much more who will be inspired to achieve great success with Affilister. You can check out Affilister on the warrior forum.
