Thanks Stuart for the article. I am just trying to clear some of my confusion. On TIWIB, there is hardly any content. I mean there are lot of images and ads going to Amazon and other retailers, but hardly any written content. Despite of thin content, the site is still ranking on google. What about the "content is king" statement that everybody brags about. I am assuming the site is ranking due to many of the products it is promoting are weird. Less competition and easy to rank.
If I read all the information correctly, and I did a few SERPS searches for each site, I don’t rank within the top 120 for any of my current target keywords… but I rank pretty high on my older site for keywords that I will no longer be targeting. I’ll have to understand this more to be able to talk about what that means and how I should be using this information… Can anyone explain it to me?
Yes I am definitely going to start an affiliate site/blog. Now I have to decide a niche. I am sure I will be able to do that easily with your help. My major concern is; how will I drive traffic to it? (though I know you have mentioned a lot of information about it on your blog). I have no major experience with social media marketing, etc - just some SEO. Any suggestions how I should move forward? 

In July 2009, Murphy hired an outsourced program manager to run the affiliate program. She chose Michael Nunez of AffiliateManager.com. Nunez’s fees range between $2,500 and $5,000 per month. The variance depends on whether or not there are performance incentives in place, and on whether additional services are needed such as design and development.

Affiliate Network. This is the company that helps brands set up their affiliate programs. Brands who don’t want to spend the time and effort to set up their own affiliate program from scratch will normally partner with an affiliate network to save costs and overheads. Though so, not all brands will choose to partner with an affiliate network to market their products.
But, I have a hard time focusing my attention and efforts so my one site idea suddenly turned into 3 sites to test 3 different approaches. I have an existing Fitness related site, a new Sports site and a new Outdoor site (we’ll creatively call them the FitnessSite, SportSite and OutdoorSite during this case study). I’m going to test building an authority site, a comparison/review site and a pure Amazon affiliate site and see how it goes. You’ll get to come along for the ride.
The real answer though, is put out enough content so that your subject is properly covered. Kind of a vague way to answer, but it is true. You want your resource to be better than everyone else in that space. The best way to do it imo is to slowly build links while you are building out the site. Get involved with the community (forums), meet people in your space (guest posts, broken link building), and all the while, pump out content! 

“We are excited to have this new program up and running, showing our appreciation to our dedicated customer base,” said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus. “One of the most effective ways for people to learn about HempMeds® products is through online social media and word of mouth. With this new affiliate program, we have given even more of an incentive to our current customer base to share the benefits of our products.”

plenty of exact copies of TIWIB out there...I made one (www.coolkaboodle.com) using one of elegant themes WP themes...working on a new site using Elegant themes Divi (and set up a showcase site http://www.divithemeexamples.com)....no reason to copy TIWIB exactly....look for a new angle. more niche is needed I think as way to many copycat sites out there..FWIW my coolkaboodle site doesn't make a huge aount now I stopped maintaining/updating it...

The meat of Darren’s post is about why he chose to use Amazon for his affiliate marketing, despite all of the perfectly valid criticisms out there. Amazon commissions are small, sure, and a lot of Amazon products are cheap, so success often relies on big ticket niches – which are packed – or volume, which takes a long time to build. However, he points out:
As a consumer of CBD Oil products myself, I can testify to the tremendous results that CBD oil provides for those dealing with chronic pain and other ailments. Although I primarily blog about blogging and finance topics, I found that many of my friends and family were very interested in learning more about the benefits of using CBD Oil after seeing my quality of life improve drastically after using it.  I decided to research as to whether the company I buy my CBD Oil online had an affiliate program.  Turns out it did! (BTW – I purchase mine exclusively through Hemp & CBD Superstore.)  I found many other reputable companies had programs as well.  This provided an opportunity for me to actually help people going through my same struggles with pain AND create an additional income stream separate from my blog. Smart bloggers always create multiple income streams!
While the companies above do have a small variety of products for pets, these two offer CBD oil and Cannabis products for pets.  I actually order the fish oil tincture from Hemp & CBD SuperStore, but also buy Canna-Pet biscuits as well. My older dog has severe arthritis and the oil has helped her tremendously in relieving her pain. I use the biscuits for all of my dogs (also have 2 Doberman) for an afternoon “wellness” treat.

Setting up any of this on your own would take specialized technical expertise and many hours of trial and error. As a cannabis affiliate marketer, lack of time is your biggest constraint, so a comprehensive affiliate marketing program like RevOffers is your secret weapon. It accelerates your progress by giving you access to the best offers in the CBD oil business, and the data and analytics you need to continually improve your performance.
Hello, i love your website and all the good stuff you teach us:) I have a question concerning the copywrite of the pictures somebody would use on a site like thisiswhyimbroke.com. Is it enought to just link to the products? Is there any Disclaimer you would recommend for a site like this? What is your opinion on that? Thank you a lot for your help!
Online commerce has put purchasing power in the hands of the consumer in ways that hadn’t existed only a few short decades ago. With the power of social media, content publishers, and a plethora of digital media readily available at their fingertips, today’s consumer are more educated and shopper-savvy than ever before. This isn’t just limited to the product categories a customer is familiar with either. If a customer wants to find a car but doesn’t know the first thing about buying an automobile, there are more than enough websites ready to explain different buying options, how to identify a car, what to look for in a used vehicle, and more. And some of the biggest beneficiaries of this are luxury brand advertisers.

Aside from knowing how to work on a WordPress site a little bit, I don’t really know much about any of this stuff. I don’t even really know how much work is required but I do know that others have done it so I can do it too. Don’t expect me to “preach knowledge & authority” since I intentionally started this with ZERO knowledge - I thought it would make for a more realistic case study. Also, next month I will create a very basic blog where I will post more details about what I’m doing and the themes, plugins, add-ons and affiliate networks I’ll be using. I’ll provide that link when it’s up and going.

When asked about the best main selling point for LiveChat, Robert said “I usually like to recommend it to visitors who don’t mind paying a little extra and want to have a hassle-free, well-designed and well-thought-out product”. Since the site promotes its own content, Robert doesn’t use the tools provided by the program. He decided to rely solely on his own blog writing and reviews and only added LiveChat logo in the article.
The last step here is to take action. I assume you’re reading this because you already have your own website, but the truth is it’s not necessary. If you do have a website, the Diem CBD Ambassador Area has pretty much everything you need to get started, including web banners, direct linking capabilities, and stat tracking. But if you want to promote sales locally, Diem CBD also offers custom business cards and postcards for affiliates to use through networking with local businesses. No other CBD affiliate program offers this same level of promotional material, and through my discussions with their affiliate manager it’s become pretty clear that they are willing to provide many just about any resources I need as long as they see me actively promoting their products and making sales. The level of support so far has been incredible.
I’m running an in-house Partner Program here at LiveChat so I’m probably the right person to reach out to if you have any questions or doubts. Feel free to do so anytime via email or Twitter. From my posts on this blog you’ll learn how our project is progressing and how you can leverage various features and business opportunities we provide. Expect me to share valuable insights and partners’ success stories you can benchmark or - at least - get inspired by. Happy marketing!
Indeed it is the best guide for starters who would want to start their business online. It gives them confidence and belief that there is no second thought as to which affiliate training is trusted to gain knowledge. Mentioning Wealthy Affiliate, we can all agree it is the benchmark for other sites because of the transparency needed for site developers and the search engine websites such as Bing and Google.
2. What are you willing to give a coach? A decent coach isn't just going to take you under his wing for nothing. And it's quite unlikely that a decent coach will be lurking in the warrior forum, ready to spam you with their "buy now" link. They'll either want a big fee for personal guidance, or a share of your business/profits. Are you able to offer that? If not, you might find getting a good coach difficult.
Hieu’s business model isn’t designed to set up 1-2 sites and push them until they’re powerhouses he can live off of indefinitely. Rather, he builds sites and makes them moderate successes, something like a proof of concept. The site he sold in this case study took nine months to reach a monthly income level of $1,600, at which point he sold it for about 10x that amount.

Each domain was already targeted to specific niches so really that was sort of already set... I just had to niche-down a little and do a ton of research to identify and potential opportunities. Starting from scratch might have been easier since I would have discovered a niche and then buy the domain... This way I had the domain and had to kinda back into the niche.

My guess is that my bounce rate is really high on all the sites because the content is so stale or the site is just new. While I’m working on posts or pages I have IE (Internet Exploder), Chrome and Firefox open at the same time and I open the different pages in each browser to make sure it looks right… then I close them which probably doesn’t help the bounce rate. On my FitnessSite I literally only put up a total of 8-10 posts in 2 years. The content that’s currently on there was very time-relevant (it was localized event news) so if someone hits an old post then they aren’t going to stick around long because it’s not current content. Of course that’s just my hypothesis since I really don’t know for sure.

Hi. I am a designer but want to make money as an affiliate marketer. I have already made 2 sites http://www.betabookhotels.com that has nearly made the $200 mark in commissions but that’s with too much time invested over quite a few months. I have a new adsense site http://www.mwddatarecovery.com. My problem is I have spent all my money on systems that have failed to succeed. I am stuck at this point with no more money and no trust in how to guides and helpers.I need those above websites to make some bob before I do anymore sites.I want to sell affiliate products but have no more money. If I buy a session from you can you get me off the ground? Do I need to spend more? What if your session doesn’t get me anywhere?
This is probably going to just be a preference, but when I am building smaller niche sites, they are about 30-50 pages/posts long. I target my main keywords, and then the rest of the posts target smaller keywords and I interlink my posts with other content on my site. Once I have about 30-50 pages of good long engaging content, i will then start link building.

– Negotiation is not about crushing your partner and walking out as the winner, it’s about both being happy with a deal where you both give some and you take some. It’s based on what is fair. My Affiliate’s success is my success. I want them to be happy with what they earn, since that means I earn mine. Negotiation is a daily activity for an Affiliate Marketer.

The CBD Oil industry is expected to grow 700 percent by the year 2020, that is around 2.1 billion as mentioned in the Hemp Business Journal. In the past few years, the wellness market has experienced a huge demand for CBD products because of its curing elements. CBD is one of the marijuana compounds that is liked with ample of health benefits without getting you high. The approximately $1 billion CBD industry is now budging into high gear, with sellers selling everything from CBD teas and beer substitutes to CBD dog remedies and coffee.

Since July 2014 I read for the first time about affiliate marketing, I never heard of this way of working before. Until then, I have worked in MLM (multi-level-marketing). Which wasn't that suitable for me. MLM is a very aggressive way of marketing, and you do need to harass everyone around you to join. That's not quite me. Affiliate marketing works very different. You write reviews about products of a company, and when people decide to buy something after reading your review, you get a few percentage of the sale. That's more my line of work.
The industry is still wide open, and many regard this as the financial opportunity of our lifetimes. Investors are scrambling to figure out how to profit from the demand for medical marijuana, but smart entrepreneurs are already making money. How? Though CBD oil affiliate programs and marijuana affiliate programs that reward internet traffic with high commission payouts.

February Commentary & Details: This past month was spent doing a lot of keyword research on each niche to find the exact focus for each site. For the purpose of my case study, I’m not going to get into the details on how I chose my keywords or my niches on Reddit. There are plenty of great case studies out there that talk about researching keywords/niches /u/HumbleSalesman has a pretty good one. There are also fantastic resources out there on the web - just Google (or DDG) it. I have provided some “real life” searches that I did this month below.
