What is the meaning of “Pantika”, would you ask yourself… Well, it is simple. More than 10 years back, when I discovered the Internet, a friend of mine helped me to open a Hotmail account. I first tried to register a username with my first name, but I was not so pleased to have to use michel23675. I then tried my wife’s first name. This was taken too! The third attempt “Pantika”, my daughter’s first name was available.

Later on I made my first Pantika web page on a Free hosting service dedicated to my profile… I was at the time a cameraman, director of photography working on commercials, documentaries and TV series in Asia. Pantika.com was registered in April 2002 and served as my first paid hosted website after I discovered Multi Level Marketing and Affiliate Marketing.

This started mostly as a hobby, teaching IT being my primary occupation in these days. On different sub-domains I created different resources like a classified directory, Free tools pages, a team’s section, etc… All of these were HTML and PHP. Pantika.com was like a testing ground about making money online and I did make money!

In 2005, after 2 MLM companies I was working for were not making me that much money anymore due to a change in their commission plan for one, and a change of owner for the other, I lost interest in pantika.com after losing most of my downline and deleted everything soon afterwards. I had other websites on different topics I monetized with affiliate marketing.

Just after this episode, I was recruited in 2006 to work as an Affiliate Manager for a reputable affiliate management firm. Being at the same time an affiliate and an Affiliate Manager is great as you can see the two sides. One position helped me to perform better in the other. I also learned from the affiliates themselves seeing how they promoted the merchant and that many of them were making money with blogs.

I am relaunching now www.pantika.com, which will be mainly dedicated on affiliate marketing tips, traffic tips, SEO, making money blogging, etc… The aim of my blog is to provide useful advices with a good and limited selection of Free and Paid tools I use to help people with little IT knowledge to start making money online.

I hope you will enjoy my posts.

To your success.

    We wish to thank you all over again for the gorgeous ideas you offered Janet when preparing a post-graduate research as well as, most importantly, with regard to providing many of the ideas in a blog post. Provided that we had been aware of your site a year ago, i’d have been rescued from the unwanted measures we were participating in. Thanks to you.

    Almost everyone that makesmoney on the internet (even the millionaires) do so through affiliate marketing. Being successful in affiliate marketing involves knowing the formula that makes other affiliate marketers successful. For example, autoblogging. Autoblogging has been one of the least well-known forms of making money on the internet for quite some time… basically because it’s quite difficult to make a good auto-blog. Yet, when done right, it can provide you with a constant passive income with the only real work required being the setting up process. Video Marketing, and several other marketing strategies are all designed to drive traffic to your site, can be incorporated gradually in order to raise the position your site appears in the search engine results page when any one searches for a term related to your site. And yet, even this can be totally automated.
