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”.
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”.
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.
“In the very beginning, I did have a few affiliates who I tracked with Yahoo! store’s Track Links affiliate system. There’s nothing particularly wrong with that system, but you have to have the time to constantly monitor it and remember to pay affiliates regularly,” Murphy explains. “It is very time consuming. Even at the very small scale that I was using it, I didn’t think it was practical.”
“We send out a program-wide newsletter as well as post in our forums weekly. These communications include new product releases, current top sellers, promotional information, public relations news and more. However, that’s only our broad communications. Top performing affiliates also receive additional updates on products specific to their site, as well as calls on a periodic basis with ideas on how to improve traffic to their site. We also provide custom creative they can use to improve performance of their current traffic,” Nunez explains.
Affiliate marketing is one of the best opportunities to make a living online today. I mean just think about it – with over three billion current internet users, there’s opportunity for everybody to capture their own piece of the pie, and that number only continues to grow every single day. If an excellent training platform with community support is available to help you, I’m not sure why anyone wouldn’t give it a shot. I know Wealthy Affiliate has a free starter membership, so there’s essentially no risk in trying it.
This Manuka Doctor and Couponology case study highlights trademark + term bidding, from the goal of the program, to the strategy and the results from using this type of affiliate marketing strategy. So what exactly is trademark + term bidding? It is when an affiliate asks the advertiser for permission to run a paid search campaign on the brand’s behalf and allows for the affiliate to have a brand specific coupon or sale initiative and is strictly performance-based.
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?
Selectiveness Can Make for Few Options: Luxury Brands that are trying to find content publishing partners may run into the issue that, by the time they narrow down their selection, there are only a select few options available for them to work with. This creates a challenge for Luxury Brands who are looking to develop a successful affiliate model: fewer publishers mean fewer opportunities, and fewer opportunities will result in an uphill battle.
Thanks for the validation and the encouragement. I live by the philosophy that “if you can do something then I can do it too – but probably better”. So seeing that other people have done it, successfully, I was motivated to at least give it a shot. I really don’t know where it’s going to take me – hopefully down the money-making-machine path - but who knows really. I figure that by putting it out there for everyone to see it will do 2 things – 1. Help me to focus and execute since I won’t want to write an update that says “I didn’t do much this month”. And 2. It will help me with strategy since I will have to clearly define what it is that I’m trying to accomplish and how I’m doing it. Writing it down is part of the goal making process so this just helps me articulate the goals. We’ll see how it goes!

So you know at the beginning of the website the title "This is why Im broke" is big at the top center, but when you scroll down it gets smaller. Is that what you call Image Slider Plugin? Thank you for your reply. I am more going for Pinfinity but i like SympaGrid. I also like the one you recommended which is $47 but it is too simple and doesnt look as nicer as the other (Sympagrid&Pinfinity)
