Jeremy Shoemaker, guy who makes over 100K with Adsense!
This is a story about ordinary guy from ordinary city who nowadays makes over 100K $ per month... It's unbelievable, but it's truth! He really inspires me, guys!
In the 1980’s, Jeremy Shoemaker’s mom purchased an Apple IIc. Schoemaker found it amazing! He began to write simple programs on the Apple, mostly consisting of repeating test messages that said, “My mom is cool.”
1995-Schoemaker was an appliance salesman at Sears when a customer offered him a job at an ISP in Moline, IL. He was known to have “computer skills” as he spent most of his free time at work playing games. “I knew nothing about the Internet and had a very limited knowledge of computers.” The ISP had only Linux based terminals so Schoemaker had to quickly learn system software, web server management and mail system management.
Schoemaker compares those early days of educations to a “karate kid experience.” “I thought it was all pointless hard work, but in hindsight, I could see that over the course of two years, I had gained the foundation of a very useful skill set.” He also witnessed the birth of the Internet. Working at the ISP also demonstrated to him how much money could be earned in a number s game with a market place as big as the Internet.
He left the ISP and went to college at a time when there was no such thing as spam or phishing schemes on the Internet. In college, Schoemaker founded his first business making Macintosh gaming sites. Those early sites became very popular and allowed him to practice his skills, focus his talents and avoid ever completing a college degree.
“I didn’t go to class much and instead was taking calls from companies wanting to advertise on my site. All these places had newly created on-line advertising budgets. With on-line advertising, they could see instant and direct returns from their advertising dollar.”
“With the help of my wife and her stable income as a physician, I was able to make a break from corporate life and start ShoeMoney Media Group.” From the company’s inception, Schoemaker has embraced the mantra, “prioritize potentially profitable projects.” He is constantly generating new ideas for sites, programs and marketing, channeling energy into those that truly have the potential for long-term traffic and revenue.
