About Me – Starting Affiliate Marketing Business

Welcome to my site setaffiliatebusiness.com.

I am Mike and, I am a founder of SetAffiliateBusiness.com

First of all, I would like to shoot straight from the very beginning.

To create an online business – It is not something you can build overnight. Most likely it will take a bit longer to have full-time income online. But if you like challenges, you are willing to educate yourself along the path, in a reasonably short time, you can set affiliate marketing business within 6 to 12 months.
Once you find a proper method, you get yourself a good guideline you will become an authority in your “chosen field of endeavor”.

Little Bit About Me

My full name is Michal Bahno, but you can call me Mike 🙂

I am a regular guy coming from middle Europe who tried quite a lot of jobs from construction working in different countries, in McDonald as a cook, through selling sponge bobs in Universal Studios, to a mechanical engineer in Germany and France – for Airbus.

I love traveling. I had a good job where I used to have 30 days of paid vacation. That allowed me to visit the USA twice.
Well, not just visit. In 2009 I and my friends did a round trip in the RV. In 5 weeks we did the “loop”, visiting more than 20 states. It was an awesome trip.

USA Trip 2009

In 2011, we made a 2nd trip to the US, but his time only west coast. This time we traveled by rented car – actually I felt in love with Ford Flex. Great car for long trips, comfortable and very spacious.

Other than the US, I did trips to South East Asia as well. I visited Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, and of course Bangkok- Thailand.

And because of my work in France, I did several trips to Spain (Barcelona, Valencia, Costa Brava), more than 10 times in Andorra, and also France (Paris Lyon, Marseilles, Nice, Carcassonne, Bordeaux, etc), UK London, Ireland Dublin, Belfast.
In the Summers I love to go to Italy, which includes Sicily as well where I love the countryside.

It was all great .. but only for 30 days a year or so.

I used to have a great time, but even though the work was OK I always wanted to do something where I have a better influence. Also, I met a lot of great people.

Me in the middle

In the aviation industry, you meet people from all over the world. But you meet them and leave them.

It used to happen more and more regularly, that I had to change places due to different projects.

So there was some inner voice telling me that this is not the right way to earn money and I must change my attitude and find other ways how to generate income.

The corporate world simply has not been my cup of tea. Slowly but surely I came to decide that real freedom lies in the status of being independent.

And yes I do love traveling but I want to go where I want and when I want and not because of some kind of project that I have to be part of.
So after reading some books, watching YouTube videos, searching the internet, checking some online courses I came to the decision that Internet Marketing seems to be something I am looking for.

The main idea behind this internet marketing thing is the vast amount of people connected to the internet. So when you build your business online – you never close and you don’t have to be in the office all the time.  In fact, you don’t even need an office.

Having a business with a market where more than 3 billion people go daily – is the right place.

How Did I start with offline/Online business?

I started using the internet for a business in 2014.

I was asked to sell a service for one local company offering an outdoor activity. The targeted groups were to be people from Europe.

I have “invested” in google ads and later in the 1st half of 2015 I started to run Ads on Facebook as well.

I spent several thousand Euros on Ads on Google, FB Ads – learning how to sell using free YouTube tutorials, following marketers.
It took more than $2,000 out of my pocket on FB Ads and more than twice on Google Ads.

I was shooting blindly for 2 years or so till the first group made a purchase.

My Facebook Ads.

I was so happy. It did not cover the money I invested though.
Fortunately, they liked our service and they come back 4 months later. I got almost break even.
But did not earn a cent as a profit. I was forced to find a 9-5 job, again just to make living and pay the bills.

Also, this specific business was not something that I have 100% influence on.

Besides, you have only certain hours when you operate, and people have to travel to your place … So I knew it may not last for very long. Not mentioning that you are in partnership and it can happen that partner will want to go another way.

Therefore I was constantly looking for some kind of online education or platform where I would be guided by experienced guys. Because these days find so many scams out there offering thousands of bucks in a day. And it does not work like that.

Don’t get me wrong, some courses are fine some are worse.
What I also do not like is, for example, they teach you the stuff in the right way, but you have to pay something like $50 months (plus TAX) and you get only basic knowledge. If you are willing to go deeper into the training there are upsells involved which cost in many cases much more than the initial fee of 50 bucks.

I wanted to find some free online affiliate marketing courses.

Eventually, I did find such a Platform and I am more than happy that the training I follow. I am constantly learning and one of the learning parts is also to apply the knowledge and also to teach others, fewer experienced members.

Have you been struggling?

TV, radio, magazines, especially the internet with social media – there is just so much noise out there, where one can be lost and nothing solid comes out of that. This can go on and on for your entire life.
I fell into that trap as well and realized that in many cases I just wasted my time.
There is a good chance that some people do realize the same thing and thus, they come to the point where they feel like bringing some value to others.

You can build on that you can learn something and with the help of either this site or another, you can become more valuable for your loved ones and of course for society as well.

The Purpose of this Website?

As you know by now, I was struggling to make my 1st dollar online as well.
And I have check tons of digital course, online training and what not… only to learned that there are so many scams and misleading proucts.

I dare to say that 90% of all the coures I have stumbled upon were (are have been) misleading. Extremely misleading and I decide to creat this website where everyone can read unbiased reviees of such digital products.

I also want to people know that it takes time and effort to make consisten income online.
Ther is no such a thing as get-rich-quickly.

If you take nothing from this short article pleae remember:

Do resrach first, check and double check the specific producta and only then use your credit card.

…But Most importantly

It is acutaly possible to build a website and start creating content for free. There are many information out here available for you that once you add all up, you can drive free traffic and make revenue within 4 or 6 months (depends on a niche).

I know how important is to find valuable information out there, that are for free.
So my maingoal is to povide my audience with such information regarding:

  • Niche
  • Keyword Research
  • Organic Traffic
  • Basic SEO
  • Affiliate Marketing
  • and more

I hope you find a lot of useful inforation on thsis webiste.

Feel free to contact me, I will maek sure you provide you with a feedback within 24 hours.

All the best,

  4. First I must appreciate your efforts in helping us and the world how to get empowered. I have found some rich information and decision making guiding principles within your articles. KEEP ON WITH THE GOOD WORK.

    Kindly get me more information about the following crypto currency trading company.



    • Hello Richard,

      Really appreciate your comment.
      As for the Terafxtrade, I will add it to my to-do list.

      But as I see, the website was registered only in November 2020, so it is still hard to say.

      Nevertheless, I will keep an eye on it.


  5. Thank you Sir, much appreciated
    Please Im Solomon from Ghana and would like you assist me personally in online marketing on social media and others.
    Thank you

  6. Sir, I think I just saw your reviews on Beurax. Please how can I learn through you on how to earn money online? Please how can I track the group that created Beurax because we invested so much money there?

    • Hello Victoria.

      There are many ways how to earn money online.
      The way I do is called affiliate marketing.
      I run this small website and earn money from affiliate marketing (meaning offering products and services of companies that are valuable) and also I have a small profit from the advertising.

      In case you would like to learn how to build a website that can generate a consistent income in the long run I personally recommend one particular educational platform.
      You can read about the platform first – here is the link:

      Or you can click on the following link where I shortly explain what does it take to make money online with affiliate marketing:
      And you can join this platform for free.
      There is a 1-week free trial, where you will go through the first lesson.
      You then decide to pay for the training, meaning becoming a Premium Member with a plethora of educational material and access to other members,
      or you can just keep your Starter account for free.

      I am sorry to learn that you have lost a lot of money with the beurax.
      It is shame that there are so many scams out there just like the beurax.

      That is why it is important to do proper research before using a credit card.

      Stay safe and healthy
      and if you have further questions let me know

  7. I’m grateful for your advice about the MLM businesses.my question is could you please help me know some of the legit online businesses to invest in?just want to have other streams of income

    • Hello,

      You are welcome – I am glad to help.

      You just want to invest in some kind of business and do nothing right?
      Well, my friend, If I knew about such a “business” I would not need this website.

      If you have enough budget you can find a company and invest in S&P500. The return is about 8-10% yearly in the long term.

      In case you want to learn how to run an online business, just click on the #1 Recommendation in the Menu.

      I am not sure if this is helpful to you, but remember that:
      “There is no such thing as something for nothing”

      Have a great weekend


    • Hello Tyron,

      I hear you.
      I also did not know how to set up a website that can generate a consistent income. After a while finally, I did find a platform that teaches what works.
      In my case, it was a Wealthy Affiliate.
      You can join by clicking at the following link.

      You will see a message from me after signing up and then you can go through the training. I can guide you as well.

      As for Youtube, there are webinars within this platform that teaches also how to do a proper SEO for Youtube.
      Also, there are many members that do Youtube as well and they make 4 figures per month.
      You can be part of this platform and community – folks are very helpful. That was an important part for me as well.

      let me know if you have further questions

  9. Good day sir, My name is Emmanuel, having gone through your thesis, I must say I liked it and i was willing to be under your tutelage cause it is something have been looking for years. The problem now is I tried signing up for you bootcamp but your system did not allow me to sign up due to my location (Nigeria).

    I will be more than willing if something can be done cause I see this as a life changing opportunity…

    Looking forward to your amiable reply. Thanks

  10. “Hey there 🙂

    I’m Jeremy – I’ve found your blog while searching for
    some internet marketing product reviews on Google.

    I’ve been doing the same kind of product reviews in the
    past but I’ve found something much better to generate
    instant sales.

    It’s trending in some underground FB groups and
    many have a LOT of success with it.

    I call it the Super Simple Sales System – 4S for short:


    Jeremy K.”

    • Hola Augusto,

      I am sorry, I can’t speak Spanish.

      Thanks to the google translator I was able to get the message 🙂
      What kind of information would you like to receive?

      If you are interested in the affiliate marketing training you can check the following link.
      The entire platform is in English, but if you understand, I believe you can create a website in Spanish as well.

      Here is the link:

      And you can create your Free Starter account.
      Have a great weekend

    • I hear you, I know how frustrating it can be. I have been reviewing many programs teaching how to start an online business, how to find ways to make money online… most of them really suck. Anyways, I would personally recommend you to check one particular educational platform.
      I am a member of this platform since November 2017 and in my opinion, it is the best training for beginners (and intermediate marketers as well).
      You can check my review about it first (simply by clicking on the link). In this review, you will learn how it works, how it looks like, what is the cost, etc.
      I think the best part is that you can get started for FREE. There is no need to use a credit card – only your email is enough.
      If you join, you won’t be alone since there is a great community of people from all over the world, ready to help (many of them have already many years of experience in digital marketing)
      I can also guide you through the platform if you want me to.
      so, take your time and let me know if you need any further information.
