About Us

Jeremy Gosnell founded HerbalAffiliate.com—though it wasn’t actually called HerbalAffiliate.com at the time—to help pay his tuition during his sophomore year in college. Initially it was very disorganized and flawed and actually cost Jeremy a fairly large chunk of money—though he has never actually said exactly how much. Fortunately, Jeremy was able to correct his big mistakes, which included most notably a lack of any particular product niche.

Once Jeremy got the site a bit more organized, and once he settled on a product type, healthy and beauty, the site began to become profitable. It was slow at first, but sales grew quickly, and soon Jeremy found himself unable to deal with the volume. Where he had initially set out to help supplement his income a little, he had actually managed to pay for 4 years of college tuition in just over a year.

This sudden success was quite a miraculous event, but at the same time it presented a problem for Jeremy. He wanted to continue working on his physics degree, but his new project was taking up literally all of his time, causing his grades to slip dramatically. Desperate to get out of academic probation before it was too late, Jeremy almost closed the site down, but thankfully he took some time to think it through and, rather than hastily shutting down a highly successful business, he realized that he could instead allow others to take over the sales responsibilities. So he worked up a plan to implement a system of affiliate marketing that was both fair and practical.

When asked in an interview whether or not he felt that he had succeeded at his goals, Jeremy responded positively :

Even though it took a ridiculously, almost unbearably large amount of paperwork and logistics and more paperwork and more logistics and legal research and product research and you don’t want to know what else to get everything set up, the initial effort was well worth it. I’m very happy that I didn’t give up on my company. I can honestly say that it changed my life for the better, and really I have my affiliates to thank. You know, it seems like I could have done it on my own, but honestly I think another year or two of being inundated with so many orders like that would have driven me mad. Marketing is fun, but it isn’t where my heart is. That’s why I’m so grateful for my affiliates, and that’s why I try to be as generous as possible with them. They’re all very successful, and it’s obvious that they really love sales. I’m really amazed at what has been accomplished. Honestly, I think getting my doctorate is going to be a piece of cake by comparison.

And that’s where we stand today.

I’m Jeremy’s lead assistant, in charge of managing the website and handling the influx of affiliates while he works more on maintaining relationships with manufacturers to keep our supply steady with demand.
