I’m Khondoker (Owner, Khondoker Media LLC.); since it’s difficult to pronounce my name for most of you (lol), you can just call me, “K”. That’s what my Internet marketing associates, partners, fellow-mastermind-group-members and mentors call me!
I’m in the Internet Marketing for six years now- full time, with no day job right from the start. The first year was difficult, but I had my goal ahead and had the drive to reach the goal. I advanced taking one step at a time and eventually reached my primary goal, which was earning $100 a day.
Before reaching my primary goal through the Internet marketing, I was living on writing contents all day and night at oDesk. That was how I started my IM journey! But things changed within a year. I managed a couple of local companies selling international brands (like KFC, Pizza Hut) and appointed as their fan page administrator. It was 15 minutes work per day per page, and they were paying me more than enough and more importantly leaving me sufficient time to concentrate on my Internet marketing business. I grabbed the opportunity with my both hands and rigorously utilized it.
I must mention here that, I consider myself lucky because the first thing I did (the day I started my IM journey) was to create a free account at the Warrior forum. Everything I know about IM (including traffic issues), I learned from there and still learning.
By the end of 2011, a number of my affiliate sites (Amazon & Click Bank) were making me a steady income, and I was happy with the income growth. But then, the Google Panda and Penguin updates ruined everything. At that time, I had to go through almost a year of down time; frustrated, desperately trying to figure out my direction. That situation forced me to realize that I cannot let others to control my traffic flow (which is the life blood of my business). I have to work on creating my own private traffic, my own private audience over whom I’ll have the total control! So I focused all my attention to build my email list and focused on many other traffic methods that are not related to any search engine. I started list building and email marketing at the end of 2013, and it has given me the success beyond my expectation!
