Most successful affiliate marketers got into the affiliate game in some way or another. Some people accidently stumble into it from something else. Some people literally search in Google for "affiliate marketing" and then go from there. Personally, my first success in affiliate marketing was around the time mobile phone recycling kicked off and I used to dominate the SERPs for "sell your mobile" and "mobile phone recycling". But eventually as it started dying down, I flipped my sites to some guy from Mazuma mobile.
But what was your first affiliate marketing success? How did you come to be in the affiliate marketing game? Did you get into it from something else or did you just one day decide to get into it and become an affiliate for someone and then made your first affiliate sale?
