Sorry about not explaining the pageview numbers & percentages above, I didn’t elaborate because I thought it was pretty self-explanatory. I built the site from scratch… that means that I spent A LOT of time working on it. I worked on it from multiple locations, in multiple browsers and would look at it often on my phone – that increases the pageviews but doesn’t increase the number/percentage of new visitors. Pretty simple.
Now, $42,000 a year isn’t all that impressive, all things considered. That’s not quite the whole story, though. His earnings only really started to shoot up in 2008 or so. It’s more accurate to say that he started out making a pittance, and that in recent years he has hovered around $80,000 per year. That’s a respectable haul, and all from running a handful of websites, one of which is geared specifically towards helping bloggers reach their own success with affiliate marketing.

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 following are direct CBD affiliate programs that you can join.  With these, you don't have your own website, you are simply provided an affiliate tracking link that you can share in blog posts, social media, etc.  When someone clicks on your link and decides to make a purchase, you'll earn a commission! Make sure you let tentative customers know the payment process for those not currently accepting regular credit card payments. For example, with CBD & Hemp Superstore – once you complete your purchase you will receive an email that has a link to pay via E-check. You will be required to enter your bank routing number, account number, and a check number (be sure to void that check so you don't use it again). This is the same process for setting up auto payments for most online bills.  
I've worked my way up to between 1,500 and 3,000 avg daily visitors and I'm just a month and a week. So considering that nothing was payed for with anything but time and typing, I'd say I'm on to something.. Actually, the last article I wrote has gotten over 200 facebook likes and 6,000 views in two days. This might not mean much to a lot of you because you actually know what you're doing, but I'm proud. My problem is going to be an obvious one that many have asked, so admins I apologize to you. But for the love of this community, I need your help.
And speaking of customers, one of the best ways your Luxury Brand can gain an advantage by simply thinking about who their customers are, not who they envision them to be. According to Rakuten affiliate experts, the challenge comes from Luxury Brand advertisers thinking that their customers prioritize the presentation and exclusivity of the brand, which is why they’d prefer to learn about products from places like content sites versus coupon/loyalty programs. While it’s true that customers do appreciate the value and presentation of the brand, they’re not on coupon sites or loyalty sites for a discount or because they can’t afford the brand otherwise – just the opposite in fact. Most affluent shoppers are looking to buy Luxury Brands through these sites because they’re looking to earn value in places other than savings. This could be because of a rewards-type structure on loyalty sites, or free shipping on a coupon site. Knowing your customers are key, knowing where they shop and why is even better. the graphic on the right illustrates the mindset of affluent consumers: they shop for the best deal the can, even if that deal means finding their savings somewhere other than the pricetag.
The unfamiliarity within the search space can be daunting for some, however TM+ (trademark+) simply refers to affiliates bidding on the trademarked name of a merchant, plus other terms, such as “merchant coupon” or “merchant code.” A TM+ campaign can be a fantastic remedy to the problem facing many advertisers today on how to drive greater incrementality with top performing affiliates.
Having already selection of the best CBD oil companies — with tinctures, capsules, topicals and vape oils — at your fingertips is a great start. What next? Want a single dashboard where you can track all of your cannabis affiliate marketing activity? RevOffers has that too, plus the trackable links you’ll need, ready-made graphics and ads and much more.
Let me add a comment and an idea about Chris Farrell. His teaching method is very good. He goes one step at a time; his video library is extensive; the fee for his Membership site is well worth it. I have two monitors and it's a snap to watch/listen to his videos on one and follow the instructions on the other. With the stop/go feature on the videos, it makes it real simple for an Idaho Farm Boy.

The answer has assumed to be exclusivity: partner with a few publishers that reflect the high value that a luxury brand advertiser brings in their products, and capture that market that values exclusivity and high quality. However, there are publishing partnership opportunities in affiliate marketing that maintain that exclusivity and value while capturing new customers and extending the brand’s reach. In this case study, we take a close look at how luxury brands can yield high amounts of success in affiliate marketing by partnering with Coupon and Loyalty/Reward sites without compromising the brand’s high value.
Always research the companies that you plan to join! This is becoming a booming industry and there isn't yet much in the way of regulation to ensure safe and quality products. When researching CBD Oil affiliate programs, look for reviews (not from their own sites) that mention things about the quality of the products, as well as information on shipping and customer service.  Be on the lookout for any negative reviews that raise flags. The best way to promote is to try the products and then begin with that company so you can fully testify to it.
You can read the rest of his post above for a bunch of tips on becoming an Amazon affiliate success. Some of the tips are pretty common, like “get more traffic,” but that doesn’t change how valuable Darren’s site is as a whole. You can also listen to a more recent post about his success – showing he topped the $500K threshold – with this podcast post.
Hempbombs offers natural CBD products with viable prices in the market. It focuses solely on the best and involving customer experience thus rendering more sales. This is the plus point for all those who want to join their affiliate program. The high conversion rates attract more affiliate towards it gainful affiliate program. The influential marketing content for a promotional purpose, the simple pay structure, and the facility to earn indirect revenue through sub-affiliates add up to make it a top brand.

Conclusively, if you’re an advertiser in Luxury Brands looking to make it in affiliate marketing, there are plenty of keys to success that you may not have anticipated but will help you in your efforts. Keeping an open mind to publisher partnerships you may not have considered and recognizing where your customers find value. When in doubt, contact your Rakuten Affiliate Network account manager with questions or concerns.

CBD Essence is another one of my favorites. I’ve been their customer for a long time and can attest to the fact that their products work!

Just use the resources given by the company, drive traffic, and make good money.

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.

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

Now that you know my situation, I need to ask.. Wtf am I doing wrong? I've got the traffic. 85% is from the US my bounce rate has been under 1% for two weeks. I've got social media presence and likes. Very easy to find on google because of my linux post.. I cannot tell you what writing that did for my traffic, but there isn't anymore money coming in. I understand that the popularity of my best post did wonders as far as SEO, but shouldn't that come with at least a littler more money or clicks or anything?? I just don't get it!

Even if they have some, they could be easily compromised.
In the case of Luxury Brand advertisers, it’s not hard to see why many advertisers would assume their customers would be turning towards content sites over other publisher models. Not only do content publishers have a controlled, targeted message, they also have the presentation and “culture” that advertisers in Luxury Brands strive to capture. Meanwhile, other publishing models such as loyalty and reward sites might be less desirable due to a lack of creative control both on presentation and content, as well as their expansive product offerings.

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... 

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?

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.
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.
Sorry about not explaining the pageview numbers & percentages above, I didn’t elaborate because I thought it was pretty self-explanatory. I built the site from scratch… that means that I spent A LOT of time working on it. I worked on it from multiple locations, in multiple browsers and would look at it often on my phone – that increases the pageviews but doesn’t increase the number/percentage of new visitors. Pretty simple.
Built the structure & let it simmer. This is in a pretty saturated niche already and I didn’t quite know how to position this site in the niche. I’m still thinking through it so I just built the structure and added a couple posts - now I’ll just let it sit for a couple of months while I decide exactly what I want to focus on. It’s going to be the bastard child until mid summer probably. This site is in a niche that I’m very curious about but I don’t really have the time to dedicate to it. I’ve always wanted to learn more about it so I’m leaning toward making this site an “intro to the niche” site since it will grow and develop as I do. I’m still not sure. This will also be my Amazon Affiliate site, which is probably the easier site to build, so I have to take that into account while building my strategy.

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.


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.
yes I am aware of the search button as I posted. I am looking for direction and I want to "cut to the chase" I am not interested in spending months sifting through every single post about affiliate marketing trying to figure out what is good information and what is useless (as I am sure there are tons of useless posts and mis information) not to mention outdated information.

The problem is that, despite other claims, the DEA considers CBD product to be illegal under the Controlled Substances Act along with other illicit cannabis products. It also means that they are enhancing their ability to track CBD and enforce its interpretation of the law.In truth, CBD merchants were probably always on the wrong side of the gray area in DEA’s eyes because CBD extracts almost necessarily contain other cannabinoids.

Nunez immediately saw the potential of the CrazyForBargains affiliate program, and thought it would be successful because it paired a generous commission rate with an extensive inventory of a niche product. “They have a wide variety of fun family sleepwear at very affordable prices, and free shipping for purchases exceeding $40. Further, they have a terrific conversion rate. Put that all together, and they are a very attractive program to promote for all affiliate marketers,” Nunez explains.
Quora - similar to Reddit but it’s not anonymous so you have to limit how much you ask/share if you want to protect your niche and your ideas. But, it’s nice for getting answers from actual “known” experts. That’s the one drawback to Reddit - someone on here that claims to be an authority could actually just be some guy living in his mom’s basement regurgitating information found on the internet.
Because CBD is legal in all 50 states, and the recent surge in demand for CBD, it’s also becoming increasingly popular for webmasters to learn how to sell CBD oil online. The good news here is that if you have done any sort of affiliate marketing on your own websites, this will make sense and be extremely easy to implement and market in just under an hour of work.

There are no fine prints here, people! What you see is what you get. I am delighted with this company’s affiliate program and would recommend anyone to try it.

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.
