Make Money Online with the Shoemoney System

One of the motivator’s behind my starting this blog is Jeremy Schoemaker, who more commonly goes by the name Shoemoney. Along with John Chow, Jeremy is considered one of the top earning bloggers on the Internet today. Since late January Jeremy has been offering a course — called the Shoemoney System — on the methods he uses to earn money on the Internet promoting other people’s products and services along with his own.

I’ve signed on to a few of his programs over the past year and a half, and I’ve found his methods and expectations to be quite realistic and very, very useful. While other courses and programs of this sort try to tell you it takes “no effort at all” or that you can “make millions in your underwear”, Jeremy is honest enough to say that it does take work, and it does take effort. While others ‘promise’ you can make thousands a month, Shoemoney realistically points out you can expect to earn a few hundred dollars a month using his system. While other programs take a “cookiecutter” approach, Shoemoney shows you ways to tailor his system to fit your own style and interests.

Or check out his daily blog, Shoemoney: Skills to Pay the Bills, which also offers insights into his techniques.

Another very useful blog you can read is JohnChow.com: The Miscellaneous Ramblings of a dot com Mogul.

You may remember reading in one of my posts last August how I had the pleasure of meeting both Jeremy and John in person at the Affiliate Summit East in New York City.

Free Internet Marketing Course from Jeremy “Shoemoney” Schoemaker

v4_300x2501Over the last few months there is one question I get asked at least once a week: “Rob, do you have any thoughts on these ‘making money online’ programs?”

Some want to know about affiliate marketing (product promotions), others want to know about Google Adwords and Adsense (pay per click or PPC), and some want to know about both.

More often than not I tell them it’s not as easy as it sounds, and if anyone says they can make it easy for you, chances are they are going to make more money off of you than you will. I also end off by telling them if they want to read more about Internet marketing they should check out Jeremy Schoemaker’s Shoemoney web site. The Shoemoney blog is a great resource for learning the ins and outs of Internet and affiliate marketing.

Now I can do that one better.

Jeremy Schoemaker recently started a 12 week email based course on Internet marketing. He’s offering the course for FREE with no strings attached. Here’s a rundown of the week by week course topics:
