For the vast majority of my time, I’m a corporate online marketing executive. It’s a demanding (and rewarding) full time job. I love it! You can read about my corporate aspirations in my 2011 goals.
However, in my online marketing journey, I quickly learned that my corporate edge would come from strategic side endeavors. In short, I decided to teach myself SEO, social media, blogging, email marketing, and other online marketing channels from an affiliate’s perspective. After all, if you can make it big as an affiliate, you truly know your stuff. Not only would this journey make me a better corporate online marketer (I could leverage my affiliate insights in my corporate job) but I would build up a nice side business, one that truly helped others and threw off passive affiliate income. (You can learn more about my thoughts on passive income from my Internet Marketing Money Map.) That was 4 years ago in October, 2007.
Today, I’m thrilled to share with you my brand new IJL Productions LLC website. I just launched this website last night to represent IJL Productions LLC, my company and home to 120+ amazing online brands that dazzle users. I highly encourage checking it out!
I get a lot of questions about my side business, how I make money online, and what I do. I first acquired IJL.net (I bought it on Sedo) a while back and threw up a quick website. Now, I’m thrilled to relaunch with a slick website that really represents my brand quite well, making it crystal clear what I do. Learn all about what I do when I’m not working in the corporate world or blogging.
I also want to take this moment to sincerely thank my strategic partners and of course visitors. I have very little time to invest in IJL Productions but have built some amazing momentum (I now own over 120 active web properties that drive 200,000 page views per month). How? It’s all about leverage, focus, prioritization, and choosing my partners wisely. I sincerely thank my amazing wife, Nicole, the Unique Blog Designs team, my buddy Morgan Linton from Linton Investments, the entire Epik team (especially CEO Rob Monster), and everyone else who was involved. You have made all the difference. More than anything, I want to thank everyone who has visited my websites, especially PPC Ian. You rock! Check out my new IJL Productions website today.
