Meet Ron Killian
Ron lives in Michigan, USA with his wife and three children close by, plus two young grandchildren. And an overly active Great Dane that goes by the name of Zarry.
His hobbies include making sawdust in the garage, which he calls woodworking, and making endless chips of wood which he refers to as carving. He is also a vivid gardener and enjoys canning the harvest. As an amateur cook he greatly enjoys creating dinners that are “almost” always editable.
How Ron Got Started
Way back in 1998 Ron was completely frustrated working for someone else in the retail lumber industry. It wasn’t his last boss, who was actually one of the best guy’s he’s ever worked for. It was the fact that he never felt he was in charge of his own destination or income.
Add to that, he was forced to work a schedule someone else set and take the limited income he was paid. Not only did he feel his income was capped, he was missing important events with his family and children.
He knew there has to be more, there had to be a better way. There had to be a way to take charge of his life and his income.
It was his tipping point.
Surfing the web (as much as it was back then) on a, slower than drying paint, dial up modem, Ron discovered others not only earning online, but building businesses that afforded them the lifestyle most people only dream of.
His first venture into the online world was affiliate marketing. He quickly learned how to drive traffic and sell one-time and recurring affiliate products and services.
Ron started with link directories, trading links and search engine optimization. He started several directories with tightly related content. He also made it a point to track and test his advertising and it paid off.
Ron attributes his quick success to his complete and total belief that he would succeed. There was no doubt. This belief drove him to work long hours in the beginning, some nights with no sleep, only to go to the job in the morning.
In less than 6 months he was earning more than his retail job was paying him. Giving his “boss” his noticed and two weeks later walked out the door of the job for the last time.
To this day he still remembers telling his wife what he had planned to do. She was not happy to say the least. It wasn’t the first time he’d tried a money making scheme.
It wasn’t the first time he had the “dreams” of being rich. She was convinced when the commission checks started rolling in. He proved not only to himself, but to her, that it was more than possible to earn on the internet.
More importantly he proved that if he could do it any one could.
Time For A Change
With just shy of 10 years of affiliate marketing under his belt, he found the market he was in started to degrade. Sales conversions soared (in the wrong direction) and the competition was growing daily.
And frankly he was getting bored.
He knew it was time to do something else. It was time to move on.
Around 2007, he sold all his web properties. Every last domain.
In 2007 Ron launch theplrstore.com. His goal was to provide quality private label rights products that gave any internet marketer the opportunity to create their own digital information products quickly and easily. To give the any person a product they can call their own.
He soon discovered that more could be made creating and selling his own digital products. While affiliate marketing can be very lucrative, he found that when you have your own products are services, it opened more opportunities and had the power to generate a higher income.
