17 May May 20, 2014 – Amazon, eBay, Affiliate Guru Skip McGrath & Sword Swallowing w The Lady Aye
Skip has been on the show several times and one of our favorite guests. Megan, host Jim’s wife, used Skip’s techniques to start an Amazon business that made 60k in year one! Skip has shared his eBay and Amazon tricks, but today he will help us with affiliate marketing and how to make money with it. Skip runs EZAuctionTools.com and mentioned two sites to help you, Commission Junction and ClickBank. Skip’s path to entrepreneurial success started with the closing of a New York antique shop in 1997. He ventured to eBay to see if he could sell his remaining stock and within a few months, he was looking for more inventory!
