If you don’t know who Mook-Jon is, you should — he is one of the most successful affiliate marketers on the Internet. I read and enjoy his stuff, and we have exchanged brief notes. He’s a good guy, and he made his first million when he was 21, which I respect tremendously.
He staked his claim to fame with the following picture of his Commission Junction screen that appeared on SitePoint and remains there:
Jon has started a blog, and it’s called The Mind of a Super Affiliate.
He has also decided to hang out his shingle as a consultant:
I will be launching a new website that will deal with 1 on 1 consulting. It’s not going to be a by the hour type deal, instead, the client will submit a list of 20 questions, and I will answer those on top of their goal that they’d like to reach. I will most probably be charging about $300 for this. Coming up with the price was a bit tough for me, because like all consultants, we all think our time is work a cajillion dollars. I figure, if I had to take some time out of my day to help someone, I may as well make it worth my while and theirs, especially with the type of advice I’ll be giving out.
Just to let you guys know, this is not some general advice about what would work best for the industry/niche the client is in. It would be straight forward, no sugar coating bullshit answers to EXACTLY what the client needs to do, from some very personal and unique perspectives. Meaning, the advice/consulting they’ll get is tailored specifically to THEIR site, not their industy’s. Which I think is a very important aspect that is generally not found anywhere else.
It will be the best $300 you’ll spend, I’m sure.
