Today I’d like to introduce a post series that will go on as long as there will be popular people in the Affiliate Marketing and Make Money Online Industry. The “Who is” series will feature important people as well as promising individuals. I will probably start with the big guys then mix it with people who are climbing up the ladder of success.

Time to jump in! Who is Jeremy “ShoeMoney” Schoemaker?

Jeremy Shoemoney Schoemaker

There is A LOT to say about this guy who was born on May 31, 1974, and grew up in Moline, Illinois.

In 1995, being 21 years old, he was working at Sears selling appliances. Until some day, a woman came in to offer him a better job for an ISP (Internet Service Provider) company. Indeed, she had heard from other people that ShoeMoney was good with computers, hence the job offer. Being passionate about computers and technology, Jeremy accepted the offer for this new job which was enlightening for him as he learned how to manage servers, develop security systems and write websites.

After a few years, he dropped the job to go back to school thinking he needed a degree to be able to step up his game. While Jeremy was studying, he created his first business developing gaming websites until the dotcom crash which was also the crash of his business.

From there, he went from a job to another one with things generally ending badly and him being fired. That was until he met his wife. At that time, she was studying to become an anesthesiologist and she taught Shoe that you can get whatever you want in life as long as you are willing to work in order to get it: this was a life-changing lesson.

The ShoeMoney Empire strikes back

In 2003, he got into the real deal. He started his blog ShoeMoney.com and at the same time work extensive hours on his website: NextPimp, which became one of the biggest ringtone/mobile website on the internet. He earned his first massive amount of cash through this site and eventually became famous because of the picture of him holding a $132,994.97 Google Adsense check.

In 2006, along with 3 other people (Aaron Wall, Lee Dodd, and Dave Taylor), ShoeMoney started his own conference: Elite Retreat. It is a very selective event packed with influential people in the industry. Even if the first session was limited to 30 attendants and the entrance fee was $5,000, it’s been a complete success year after year.

In 2007, Jeremy created an Advertising network called AuctionAds which was based on Ebay Affiliation program. After only 4 months of activity, there was already 25,000 active publishers for the network generating over $2,000,000 per month in revenue.

In 2008, Shoemoney did 2 important launches: ShoeMoney Tools and ShoeMoneyX. ShoeMoney Tools is an extensive set of PPC and SEO tools designed mostly for internet marketers. ShoemoneyX is a completely free 12 weeks course designed to teach anyone the basics of Internet Marketing.

In 2009, he opened his most complete course to date: ShoeMoney System. This comprehensive guide is aiming at taking people by the hand and guiding them step by step through various internet marketing techniques.

In 2010, Shoe launched a free SEO online product called Free Seo Report. This online utility allows you to input your website url and targeted keywords then receive a completely brandable SEO report. This tool is aimed both at webmasters who are willing to improve their website SEO and SEO professionals who might find ways to monetize these reports and use them with their own clients’ projects.

In 2011, at Affiliate Summit West in Las Vegas, ShoeMoney officially launched his latest product called Link Control. This product is mostly targeted at online marketers as it will allow them to manage all their links in a single place, optimize offer choices, automatically switch links based on EPC and conversion rates.
