Fast forward to early 2015, I have a decent job (at a desk all day), this site still humming at 5K pageviews/month with almost ZERO thought given to it for almost 3 years, I own about 20 additional domain names and a little too much time on my hands. I start digging into Reddit and I stumble upon a few case studies talking about affiliate websites. Suddenly it hits me - I could do that! So, that’s where this case study starts… with me trying to resurrect my site and turn it into something that generates a small stream of money.
One of the most comprehensive compendiums of coach training material available, the Coach Training Accelerator is a self-paced, self-study program that uses proven techniques and guidance for launching a successful coaching practice. A surefire and expedited way to launch a coaching practice, the Coach Training Accelerator can be applied to and used in conjunction with the CTA Certified Coach Program.
I don’t regret the attempt and I certainly don’t discount the lessons I learned. I do however regret that I hadn’t learned more about affiliate marketing while I was running my own show. I certainly would have been in a different place if I had known even a little bit about it. The one business that’s still around had a pretty robust website that was focused in the fitness “niche”. At the time that I stopped working on my business we peaked at around 30K pageviews for the month (early 2012) but were only generating about $600/month in advertising revenue! Ahhh, hindsight! I was trying to go door-to-door and get advertisers to buy ads - wow, that was hard.
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.
The site has grown immensely popular as one of the first of its kind, though its design has been mimicked endlessly in the years since it reached success. It’s estimated that, as of the time of the post I linked above, it was making an estimated $20,000 per month from Amazon affiliate sales alone, along with more from, eBay partner sales and referrals to a whole host of other sites, like ThinkGeek and Wicked Lasers.

Fifteen U.S. state legislatures have passed “CBD only” (or, more accurately, “low THC”) laws, and other states are poised to follow suit. Some states restrict the sources of CBD-rich products and specify the diseases for which CBD can be accessed; others do not. Ostensibly these laws allow the use of CBD-infused oil derived from hemp or cannabis that measures less than 0.3 percent THC. But a CBD-rich remedy with little THC doesn’t work for everyone.
GRW is the manufacturer of the highest quality CBD Hemp oils and CBD products. The brand offers its users a safe, effective alternative to prescriptions painkillers, other toxic prescription drugs and over-the-counter drugs that contain harsh chemical compounds alien to nature’s perfect remedies. This brand has more demand among the users as the products are formulated with soothing botanicals and natural plant-based ingredients. You will definitely gain more by joining its reward programs.
Cannabis-related products are clearly a massive growth business, now you can see the dividends of that revenue stream without making any investment up front. It’s a low risk, high yield opportunity for you to monetize an existing market and earn a constant flow of commissions with the simple click of a button. The Hot Juice CBD and ejuice affiliate program is designed to bring recurring benefits to you and top shelf vape products to the people who will definitely appreciate them.
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:
Cannabidiol (CBD) has NOT been proven to treat, relieve, nor cure any disease or medical condition listed on this site. The medical studies, controlled tests, and health information offered on Cannabidiol Life of allcbdoilbenefits.com (or any variation of the URL) is an expressed summarization of our personal conducted research done by me and few friends in the business. The information provided on this site is designed to support, NEVER replace, the relationship that exists between a patient/site visitor and the patient’s/site visitor’s physician.
I say congrats regardless of which is your forte' becuase I genuinely think that once you find your "thing" you have the best possible chance of soaring. Most would be affiliate marketers flounder because they never find their forte', they end up confused, overloaded with info, not sure of what to do, and quit. This shouldn't happen to you if you figure out what your thing is.

I put together a quick sample outline for a topic I just made up on the fly… I don’t know whether or not this is a viable (or even real) niche but I used it to illustrate how I go about creating my site outline. I chose the niche of “Sports Team Bobbleheads” - I created a quick menu structure based off of this topic and a few of the keywords for which I would want to optimize. Click above to see image of my outline. I indicated whether each one is a page, a post, or a category. Then I built those pages, posts and categories but didn’t put anything in them. I just created them so I could get all my internal links setup before writing my first sentence. The items in yellow are for explaining what each item will be on the site. Again, this is how I do it since I’m a very visual person and I really like outlines & bullet points!

To draw traffic to your site, you must provide relevant content that speaks to the particular audience you are trying to reach. For instance, if you are interested in vaping, you could provide your audience with information about how to vape CBD oil and medical cannabis, the benefits of vaping CBD, and the many options they have, between pen-style vaporizers, and tank-and-coil mods and various weed products that can be vaped.
“The Marijuana Control Board and AMCO staff will be managing this developing situation with the utmost care and concern,” a press release from Sara Chambers, the acting director of the Alcohol and Marijuana Control Office said. “Specific details cannot be released at this time because of the ongoing investigation.

The one main thing I learned this month is that it’s not easy work. Well, it is actually pretty easy work compared to being an electrician in winter or a heart surgeon… but overall it’s very time consuming and requires a lot of mental power. I was tired after this month. I also realized after the 3rd week of research that there probably isn’t one BEST WAY to do things - everyone has their own opinions and they all counter each other - if you’re looking for the answer it’s not going to come - there just isn’t one answer to any of this. The best SOLUTION is to just get going and see how it goes otherwise you will suffer “Analysis Paralysis”.

Cannabis is one of the fastest growing industries in the US right now due to its legal status and myriad of proven health benefits. Aside from physical stores and dispensaries, online shops are also making a ton of money selling this stuff. Given the fact that most customers prefer shopping from home now, I’d say the chances of running a successful online business is much higher.
And I was also been able to land on the biggest marketing blogs like Problogger.net, Daily blog tips, Basic blog tips and a lot more with my guest posts. The key here is – “I spend a lot of time from research to finish the posts I write”. If you create posts worth bookmarking, you will naturally attract links, shares and sales. That’s what you need to do – “create great content and add value”.

Next, it’s completely normal to have reservations about publishers that are in coupon/loyalty based programs, but just because they’re more widespread across their advertiser offerings doesn’t mean they won’t give special treatment to Luxury Brand advertisers. Rakuten affiliate experts noted that many publishers in these models recognize the importance of presentation and aesthetics for Luxury Brands and are more than happy to provide customized brand pages for their luxury partners. The best way to find out how to accomplish this is to work with your Rakuten account representative.
