Harrison took a few mins to talk with me at the show. We talk about the show… The benefits of having a Amex Black Card… and becoming Google Adwords Certified.

  1. OMG, A 16 years old superaffiliate 😮
    never heard about him..
    Interview is inspirational..

      1. Hi Chris,

        I’ve posted a couple new items on ad networks– on both shoe and cpashare. Let me know what you think.

  2. This is the first time i am watching something related to Harrison! Lemme watch it after commenting.. Excited so first commenting.

  3. I have a SatNav that was half price because it came in an off pink colour, removed and sprayed the housing, sorted.

    Little off topic, but there you go.

  4. Very inspirational, nice to know there are kids out there spending their time valuably

  5. awesome success at a young age. why are high schools not changing already?

  6. That is awesome. So it sounds like he has some sound advice and strong opnions of Best of the Best web directories. I wonder what kind of cliental he truly has. And wow exclusive black Amex. The dues for the 1st year are incredible…Geez.But I guess it isnt that bad compared to other countries that are allowed the black Amex. But dude – Shoemoney – Pink Camera – Thats so chique. I like men who arent afraid of Pink…..Very bold business decision – Go economics.

    1. Linda, you asked about what kinds of clients we have– check out leaderclicks.com and gevirtzmedia.com.

  7. Nice! I’ll have to show this to my 15 yr old son who wants to start an online business.

  8. @Douglas – I reckon that’s a pretty naive thing to say. If he was an idiot then sure, that’d be fair, but you’re assuming because he’s young he doesn’t know much, which is pretty stupid on your behalf.

  9. he first started with selling diamonds and coins online…

    of all things, how in the hell does a 14 year old start with Diamonds and Coins??

    you’d think by selling off his unwanted comic books or video games

  10. Wow, what a young kid to hit the mainstream scene and be very successful to boot. How awesome. Watch this guy!

  11. العاب شمس الدين says:

    this boy is really smart for his age . i wish i can do the same .

    1. You can— just start doing it. No magic required. Get off the sidelines and roll your sleeves up!

      H

    1. i’m intrested in this same thing, I make decent money off of websites, but its definatly not on affiliate marketing and a blog? I would like to see what else he is doing

      1. Folks— check out BlitzLocal.com, LeaderClicks.com, and GevirtzMedia.com. If you’re going to make outsize returns, then you need to do something DIFFERENT than everyone else. In thisd case, we know arbitrage well and maximize it with our our ad serving.

  12. Wow… 16 yr old super affiliate? when i was 16 all i did was play basketball and surf multiply, wtf!

  13. Congrats to Harrison on being successful at 16, Nice to see he has the black amex card, My uncle first showed it to me and was all like “you know what this is, I’m like a credit card,then he explained it was a “black card” lol, my uncles got one too, I can only hope for it one day!

  14. Amazing how some 16 year olds are wastes of space, then there are other like Harrison who accomplish so much.

  16. I’ve heard of Harrison before. He is a year younger than me and wow, he can serve as an inspiration to everyone. He seems like a pretty cool dude.

    1. Young Blogger (Russ)—

      Don’t let your age be a perceived impediment– the only thing stopping you is yourself. And places like AdWords don’t give you an advantage for being younger. You’re only a year older than me– but I don’t let age get in the way. Being young, you don’t have a family to pay for, a mortgage, or probably any significant responsibilities. So if you want to beat the “adults”, it’s not that hard– you have the time to outwork them– and have a brain that is probably more malleable and amenable to learning new things. Want to try out blitzlocal.com?

  17. Can someone here explain exactly how he makes money? Does he buy google ads and send them to landing pages which hopefully convert to moola?

    I understand the need for secrecy, but wtf!

    By the way, congrats, Harrison! Subscribed to yo blog

    1. Manatee,

      I’ll tell you that I DON’T do what everyone else does. If all I did was direct link AdWords traffic to offers, I’d be competing against thousands of others. Not trying to poo-poo those who do make a killing on that, like Dan Murray of Ravenwood Marketing– but if you’re going to make an outsized return, you gotta be doing something sorta different.

      What do I do? I have my own ad server, have many offers direct from the advertiser, and have learned a lot of techniques from running an agency that services a couple Fortune 500 clients. Most affiliates don’t have that breadth, so there are certain types of insights they miss from not being able to connect the dots in that way.

      Not sure if that helps you– main point is to spend time doing and learning something a bit different. Find out what that is for you. It could even be a niche you have special subject matter expertise in.

  18. Great stuff, just goes to show there are no barriers to being successful. I wonder where he will be in 5 years time?

    1. In 5 years time, I will be 21 years old and celebrating the ability to purchase alcohol. Seriously, who knows? I would think that we’d find a way to kill the yellow pages— shift that money small businesses waste into real performance advertising via PPC, SEO, email, and other methods. We hope that blitzlocal.com is the solution and that’s where I’m placing my bet.

  19. Wow only 16 eh, that was surely very inspirational to many of us readers here at Shoemoney .

    Best of Luck Kid

  20. He is really a superstar, achieved such a height at only 16 is inspirational. Good luck dear for future endeavors.

    1. Sawan,

      A million dollars doesn’t buy what it used to. And if you’re not a millionaire yet (but consider yourself to have made it), then you need to set your goals higher! Pesky inflation.

      H

  21. yeah, being 16 was a long time ago for me as well. Almost as far back as the good old days when we had threaded comments…

  22. […] 16 Jahre und Superaffiliate – Gugst du […]

  23. harrison with his black card crazy stuff wish i would have started when i was 16 i could have retired by now

  24. Hey Guys,
    I Saw a lot of you ask HOW i make money. Well, Check my blog i answered the question a little bit…
    -Harrison

    1. I’m 27 and don’t have a black Amex card, Actually I don’t even really know anyone who does?

  25. Great interview. The kid has it. I guess we can all listen. Think about how much Adwords budget he can spend with that black card.

    1. For those who don’t know one of the secrets of PPC– you earn MAD miles. Some of us trade gift cards because we have more miles than we know what to do with. You think I’m paying for those trips all over the world?

      H

  26. This guy is amazing. Talk about an all out genius. He is a true motivator that shows all is possible if one sticks their mind to it. Did you hear him? He said he had a platinum card and it was going to be a black card by the end of the year. And they don’t just give away black cards, you know? Now, that is dedication.

  27. Ya, I have never met the kid but I have been reading his blog for a hella long time. and jon volk says he real so it must be…. haha

  28. Wish we had these advantages as kids. Great interview, makes you wish you could do more.

  29. @SawanM – I believe it’s a $2,500 fee per year plus you have to have at least $250,000 cash flow going through it.

  30. OK, this makes me just a little bit…. angry. I gotta get smarter with affiliate marketing, if this kid can do it!

    1. Getting a little bit angry and competitive is a great way to get motivated. Reading the post and watching the vid certainly helped get me moving again!

    2. Justin,

      Don’t get angry! You want to make more money? Get more traffic to your blog site by taking down those ads. Unless you need that money or it’s a lot of money, focus on writing great content that will draw in traffic. I have no ads on my blog.

      Of course, you’re probably running other stuff– but thought I’d mention. Drop me a link bud!

      H

  31. Well, I know someone how makes money at an age of 13 years old. Although its not that much as this kid.

  32. Wow his parents must be proud! I’m ashamed to say that at 39, this is the first I’ve ever heard of an AmEx black card.

  33. That guy is amazing. Do you guys realize he pulls in over $200,000 per from for PPC marketing? Unreal for 16 yrs old…

  34. I have been following him for a short time now and he is very impressive for his age and just in general with age aside he seems like he has a good head on his shoulders.

  35. Darn lucky 16-y-o guy…

    @CV – woot! that’s pretty much unreal for the rest of us, too! 😀

  36. That is pretty impressive. Good for him. It’s nice to see that some kids are doing worthwhile things with their time. If he keeps it up, he could end up being a billionaire by the time he’s 20. He would have Mark Zuckerberg beat.

    1. Don’t focus on the money– if you’re about the money, the guy who is passionate will beat you every time. He’ll outwork you because he truly believes in what he’s doing. I’m not trying to beat Zuck. I have my own goals, which only partially involve money— with that being mostly a yardstick to measure success.

      H

  37. That is impressive. I think the age is just going to get younger and younger with these super affiliates. This is just the tip of the iceberg.

  38. […] contacts. I also really enjoyed SES although I didn’t get any pics I did do an interview with Shoemoney which you should check out. I have lots to post in the next few weeks so stay tuned! -Harrison […]

  39. […] Harrison Gevirtz – Super Affilaite 16 Year Old Superstar Interview […]

  40. I still wish I could get off on the right path… I am only 17 so I have time but this just goes to show there are “kids” that can make big money too…

  41. Personality and Passion are your fuel. Content and aesthetics are your vehicle. Constant Vigilance your driver. With these and a little elbow grease for good measure you will realize your life’s goals.

    This applies to internet marketing, blogging, and affiliate sales. Never show weakness, never back down and always be willing to adapt to the new market.

    I’d say he will have a bright future.

    1. Thank you— I heard someone once say that the harder they worked, the luckier they got. I think that’s true for me. Sometimes the best kept secrets are the most obvious things.
