Starting from scratch was fun! It took a lot of time to plan and build the framework but I think once this gets going it will be really fun to write creative, targeted, and SEO rich content. I will spend a lot of time on this site since it’s truly in a niche I love already and generating content and traffic should be natural since I live in this world. I had originally planned on this being a small and very targeted niche site for just a couple products but I soon found that my outline was at 4 pages. In order to cull the list I decided that I could only focus on the top 3 subjects and the rest had to go to a “someday maybe” list that I’ll get to later. Right now I’ll only optimize and focus on those 3 subjects within the niche until the site is in the very top for that category - and hopefully that will generate a greater return than trying to focus on 15 very light topics.
When I started out in affiliate marketing, I had less than no money, I was completely broke and had huge debts. I couldn't even contemplate spending money on advertising, on anything, in fact - other than trying to pay the bills and trying to get food for the family. If this describes you, don't worry - all this means is that you'll have to ignore any paid marketing to begin with and focus purely on your forte. 

There are SO MANY training programs out there all promising to make you rich online with as little effort as possible. Well, first of all, a good program will never promise you overnight success or millions of dollars. The fact is that it takes an average of 18 months to 2 years to build a successful affiliate marketing company online, and though there are some extreme examples where people make millions of dollars a year, most successful affiliate marketers earn a comfortable living. I highly recommend you check out the following two articles:
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!
Step two, understand what types of verticals and affiliate programs are compatible with your goals. Ideally, you would choose something you like promoting. This will make a difference in the medium term. For example, affiliate program A pays 5% commission on sales, to promote a big catalog of electronics. So in order to get USD300 per month, Jane would need to bring to the merchant at least USD 6000 in sales per month. She needs to ask herself: Is it feasible for her? Does she like to promote electronics?
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.

Yes, when you find an effective strategy to get traffic, your affiliate income can go from 1 to 100 overnight. But in order to get to that glorious day, you would probably need to have invested at least months in work. So yeah, affiliate marketing can be an instant success in terms of the change of profits you make, but one that took months in the making.
There are challenges to running a successful affiliate program. One of them is “trademark bidding,” the practice of affiliates submitting pay-per-click bids on a brand name or trademark, hoping to get their ads to appear in search engine results when a consumer searches for that brand or trademark. Traditional marketing theory would attribute that traffic to successful branding campaigns, not to an affiliate who manages to bid high enough to get its affiliate link listed in results. Nunez combats that with constant monitoring of search engine results.

You may not have given the Chris Farrell membership a fair try. You are right that it does start rather slow. Which is great for absolute newbies. You will find that you can eventually move at your own pace. By the time you complete his "21 days to success" (which you can complete much quicker if you want to) you will have a pretty solid, hands on understanding of Internet Marketing. I tried much more expensive coaching programs before finding Chris Farrell. I can tell you that there is a lot to be said for keeping it sweet and simple. No one does that better than Chris Farrell and his team. BTW... Support from Chris Farrell membership is incredible. If you do any research on him, you will see that he has a huge and happy following and still he makes you feel like you're needs and concerns matter to him, When friends and family ask me who I recommend, I ALWAYS point them to Chris Farrell and no, I am not an affiliate that hopes to gain something from this. I'm just a very happy member.
Wow. This is a great tips to follow for affiliate marketers. In my point of view, affiliate marketing is the only and best way to earn money from blogs. The contextual ads like adsense, media, chitika, infolinks are unreliable and we always have to keep on checking for clicks made or not. For Affiliate Marketing we have to work hard and will get best results.

The post I linked isn’t a direct post from the owner of the site. It’s a case study performed from the outside, so you have a better idea of how objective it is. The founder of TIWIB struggled with failed ventures before he hit upon the formula he used for the site, taking existing product affiliate pages and adding infinite scrolling, better images, and careful product selection.
I found the course extremely helpful especially as i am a beginner. Lisa is excellent at explaining which is important when you are starting out. She has made me understand the importance of finding the right niche and that to me is where most of us go wrong. I am extremely grateful for a course like this and would like to take this opportunity to thank you Lisa for creating a course that helps others! – Michelle
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.
