About Me - Internet Marketing From Home

About Me

From Busted Baby Boomer to Living the Laptop Lifestyle

In 1999 my wife and I started a business after seeing Robert Kiyosaki (Rich Dad, Poor Dad) speak at a seminar. I was inspired!

I immediately bought his board game, CASHFLOW. After I played it a few times, I invited some friends over to do likewise. We had fun. From there things snowballed until we were running big Cash Flow nights in hotel function rooms! To keep pace we purchased 10 games – at almost $300 a pop.

From there we decided that we should turn our fun game nights into a business, which we did. I love doing deals and making sales. But there is something I love more than thatI love to teach. So we created a training and property education business.

Not Everything Goes to Plan

In 2005 I got the idea to start a home loan brokerage.

I thought it would be a natural extension to our activities in real estate. I was wrong. After spending a fortune, and losing a million dollars, we stopped the business, and closed the office in 2008. In hindsight, my wife and I were probably the wrong people to be involved in this type of business. This was not helped by the life threatening illness my wife contracted during this period. Something had to give.

My Start As An Internet Marketer

In 2006 I was looking for another source of income. I was fascinated by the Internet, even though I did not have a clue as to how it worked, or how to make money from it. But I knew some people were making money, and I liked the idea of working from home – or anywhere for that matter. Finding the right business model to align myself with, was a challenge. But within a couple of months, I had found a great upmarket educational product, focused on wealth and self development.

I also liked the high profit margin, as well as the marketing system the supplier company had developed. Less than a month after starting in September 2006, I made my first dollars. And I have been making them ever since.

Disaster Strikes​

I hope you don’t think that everything from that point on was fine and dandy with me. Life doesn’t work like that. Since I started as an online marketer in 2006 I’ve had my ups and downs, the biggest one being the passing of my wife in 2011. I was married for 36 years.

In the lead up to and for a period after her passing I couldn’t concentrate on my marketing activities. My income dropped drastically.

How I Rose From the Ashes of Despair​

Then something rather wonderful happened. I stumbled across a new kind of affiliate program that didn’t require me to engage with leads at all. They did it for me. So I jumped onto it and almost immediately things started to turn around for me, big time.

My Life Today As a Digital Nomad

Since 2103 I’ve been travelling the world, having fun. I currently live in Asia and have lived in the following countries during this period – Vietnam, Philippines, Cambodia. Soon I will spend more time in Thailand. I’ve also visited Malaysia, USA, and Mexico.

Is This You?

Maybe you already have a home business, or soon to start one. Possibly you’re a network marketer, an affiliate marketer, or some other type of marketer. One thing is certain. You’re not making the money you need so you can finally enjoy the lifestyle you’ve been dreaming about for years.

One of the reasons home business marketers are not making great money is related to marketing issues:

  • ​Not enough leads
  • Not enough quality leads
  • Leads not converting into sales and new members

Can you identify?

​If yes, I think you’ll love my site. I set it up to show ordinary people how to firstly get the leads flowing, and then how to crank up their sales and sign ups.

Leads are the lifeblood of your business. Just as a farmer needs a reliable water supply to irrigate his crops, a marketer needs a reliable flow of leads to service his business.

How Can I Help You?

If we do business together I will mentor you into this great industry. I will teach you the same techniques I have used to make good money from early on.

    Excuse me Kim,
    If you want to market a product or service on the internet then do it.
    But don’t bag other companies like Dubli.
    Dubli is an evolving company, it will take 7 – 10 years to reach a tipping point.
    You obviously don’t understand the business model after reading your posts.
    So please stick to Carbon Copy pro or whatever you are selling, I’m sure Jay would not like you bagging other companies for your own gain.
    Good luck, but please be fair.

  • Yep, I also got hooked on Kiyosaki ‘s first book and CASH FLOW game. First hear about him in an mlm meeting and went to several seminars where he spoke. Also go the kids game for my children. We recently got his latest book, also interesting. Where are you located? BTW who is the last video you have on your site, I recognize the first two, but …… What mlm etc are you in or helped you along the way?

  • Dearest Kim,
    I’m starting to wonder about the nice guy finishing first. I am trying everything to help others and I am getting nowhere. Cancer forced me to turn to the internet, now I love it and I want to help others do the same, to remain productive in life and not give up. I am doing the affiliate marketing, I have followed Mike Dilliard, Joe Schroeder, Diane Hochman, Rosalind Gardner, oh my the list goes on. I understand they are all here for money, but geez the little guy on Social Security has a hard time with these $700 packages. I have 2 websites, simmonswebmarketing.ws & simmonswebmarketing.com, I am starting a new one Cynthia L Simmons to promote my Ebook “A Breast Cancer Notification”. How do I get my feet off the ground? I have blogs, articles, websites, Please Help.

  • Hi Cynthia
    All of the mentors mentioned are good people. Their info is first class. The info you supplied is too scant to diagnose the problem. But first step is to get a URL that features the keyword you are bidding for. Therefore Simmons Web Marketing will not do the job. Kim

  • Yes, I had large groups of people playing the board game Cash Flow. That was more than 10 years ago, but it was good fun.
    In ref to mlm, the best experience I had was with Herbalife 20 years ago. I was mentored by the then Number 1 distributor in the world. It had a profound effect on me. I no longer participate in MLM – I stick to affiliate marketing and direct sales programs.

  • Kim, since you hadn’t replied to Chris above re Dubli, let me put in my 2 cents.

    Dubli is NOT a nice example of MLM. It’s presence in the industry does harm, and risks tainting others. People have a right to know what you stand for – and against.

    Nice work on this blog (especially this post, Kim http://demo.kimwillis.net/learn-how-to-generate-mlm-leads-with-blogging/) and nice videos too.

  • Hi Martin
    I’ve been moving house – back on deck now. Thanks for your comments. I’m still not sure about Dubli. Time will tell I guess

  • Hi Kim,

    What a great blog. Good to ‘meet’ with you again. Keep up the great work!

  • Long time no hear Richard! Great to connect again. Kim

  • Hi Cynthia
    Thank you for your comments. If you have followed some of the gurus, as stated, the question I have for you is this: “What have you done with the information you learned?” Because i know their strategies are sound, and if correctly implemented – work very well. Implementation is key, and maybe you have a problem with implementing what you have learned. If so, let me know the specific problem, and i will see if I can help. Kim

  • Hi Kim,it’s 9 months now since i started internet marketing.I had come across an email in my email address saying”you can make $24,000 within 24 hours with only a computer and internet anywhere in the world” Claim by Robert G. Allan but asking my friends nobody knew any thing of sort and nobody knew about internet marketing.Even today my friends tells me its a riddle to them and most of them are waiting the day i will make my first dollars.To cut the long story,i’ve joined affillate programs,direct selling company,bought programs,social networking, i have been doing this blindly and since i talked with you i had courage that i’ll make it.Can you take my hand and lead me?

  • What help are you requiring Cynthia?

    Hi Kim,
    I like your work and have enjoyed reading your blog.
    I would like to introduce a subject, not new but just something many internet marketer and entrepreneurs have not really explored, that is ‘Virtual Real Estate’.
    What is it?
    How do you earn money from it?
    Is it a sellable asset?
    Does it grow in value?
    Welcome any thoughts from you and others who follow your blog.
