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. 

Great example and breakdown of not only a unique approach to niche marketing, but an excellent example that sometimes you need to think outside the box. Although, I am certainly not going to advocate to affiliate marketers that having quality content is not important, TIWIB is a prime example that there are in fact, other approaches. It certainly gets my wheels turning and provides some great ideas. You make some excellent suggestions here too. I may still be in the earlier stages of diving back into Internet Marketing, but I am a firm believer based on my experience through the years and witnessing both positive and negative affects of various IM practices that it is always wise to spread your efforts out. I think your odds of generating traffic increase dramatically when you set your sites up to rely on multiple sources of traffic. Quite simply, not putting all of your eggs in one basket. I have really enjoyed your newsletters and blog posts and I have seen them all! I only subscribe to a very few these days. Again, thanks for sharing and all the best!
Hey, Sarai! Sure, you can be an affiliate without a website, it’s just about being creative. So, to answer your question… no, you do not need a self-hosted website to be an affiliate for most affiliate programs out there. And even if you’d need to submit one, during the sign-up process, you can always use any of hundreds, even thousands web 2.0 platform and create something there. Creating a CBD blog is, of course, a good idea, you could also create your own Youtube channel, FB page, Instagram, and on and on… just be creative, there are no limits.

OK, i thank you all for all your time, advice and contributions. now i want somebody that can create an affiliate site very very similar to this one at http://www.saveongolf.net on a car repair tools (A niche from automobile) industry from now till 25/02/2015 with the theme of ThisIsWhyImBroke.com for a fee. please let person contact me on [email protected] .com or call +2349032112014, urgent pls.
At number two we have CBD Essence which is also a top-quality CBD products manufacturer. For the affiliates, it has an added advantage due to its long cookie duration dogma which will help them to earn commission for a long time on their recommendations. In addition to this, the company offers absolutely high-quality products for various purposes keeping in mind their privileged customers. The customer-oriented shopping experience and fetching customer service are also great. So, these strong points definitely make this brand a competent one.
And finally, before signing up for any type of affiliate marketer training program, ask yourself, “does this REALLY make sense?” For example, if someone is selling you an $8 e-book and that e-book is supposed to show you how to create websites that earn $10k per month on autopilot, do you really think that makes sense? If you figured out how to create “auto-pilot” websites that earn $10k per month would you give away your secrets to everyone in a measly $8 e-book? Of course not! You’d be spending your time building as many of those auto-pilot websites you could and become a billionaire!
One of the reasons I already love Diem CBD is because after registration I was instantly sent an email with tons of resources, including a detailed outlook on what exactly CBD is and what products they offer, basically an overview of their CBD products and useful information for future promotions. This alone makes it much easier to promote their products because I now have the knowledge to do so. The second thing they sent me was a detailed getting started guide that walks me through their affiliate program, step by step. This was exactly the material I needed to create this post, and promote their CBD affiliate program for folks like you! As you will see in that document, one the reasons I chose Diem CBD is not only because they have quality products but because they have the 4 tier multi-level marketing structure. Essentially, I can earn 10% commission from any customer I send their way, for the lifetime of that customer (recurring sales), but that’s not all! I also earn 4% of all sales generated from my own referrals (somebody like you!). So, if you sign up as an affiliate under me, and you refer a customer who spends $100 a month every month, you will earn $10 a month, and I will earn $4 a month. Not only that, but I can also earn 1% of sales from anyone YOU refer and 1% of sales from anyone THEY refer. Again, the 4 tier system is what makes this the most ideal CBD affiliate program I was able to find. With the right team and the right promotions, you can create your own passive revenue stream simply by learning how to sell CBD oil online!
Diamond CBD is yet another brand with some of the rare and popular CBD products in the industry like Chill gummies, CBD Double Shot, and Chong’s Choice. They use various channels like social media and offline social events to keep their products first on the consumer’s mind. From vapes and oils to rations and creams, we bring every major type of CBD product. They stock their shelves with the highest quality CBD products made from 100% Natural Premium Hemp. So, joining their affiliate program will render more commission in your pocket.

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.

If you noticed the first table in my summary it showed that one of my sites was active with over 3000 posts before I started this case study. I used to run it as a business and I had 11 paid freelancers all writing content for me for a couple of years. It didn't work out - the business model was flawed as well as a lot of other factors - but the content was already paid for so I left it up there. Other than the content that was in the first table, I wrote everything myself this past month. I'm pretty good at structuring articles and pumping out content. I get that from college - my B.S. skills are pretty good! Thanks for the question!
I kind of addressed this in one of my previous comments. The niches were already selected when I bought the domains 5+ years ago. And those were just things that I thought were popular/hot back then. So I basically had to back into a target (aka niche-down). It’s probably not the best way to do it but, in my case, it kind of worked since I was able to follow that path (see mind map discussion on /u/HumbleSalesman ‘s case study from November I think...) pretty deep and see some opportunities.
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!

“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.”

As far as advice, quite frankly I feel like the cool products magazine niche is oversaturated and competition is very high, so my best advice is to probably just find a new idea for a website/improve upon an idea for an existing website that doesn't have a lot of competition. When I started TIWIB there wasn't that much competition, but now theres hundreds of sites just like us.

Great example and breakdown of not only a unique approach to niche marketing, but an excellent example that sometimes you need to think outside the box. Although, I am certainly not going to advocate to affiliate marketers that having quality content is not important, TIWIB is a prime example that there are in fact, other approaches.

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:

Site Build It - Site Build It is my second choice for learning how to create an online business. The training is very good and you get one website with hosting included. There is no free option, which is one of the reasons that it is not my first choice. I started here back in 2007 and the education that I received was very valuable and helped me to achieve a great level of success.
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.

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.
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.

Review : I found the course comprehensive and I learned a lot. I wish I found this course when I still owned my Brick and Mortar store, it would have made a big difference in increasing my traffic. I had people coming into my store years after I was open telling me they had no idea my store existed. I used social media but now I see I wasn’t utilizing the platforms to their true potential and that they were not fully optimized at all. I look forward to using what I learned in this course on my next adventure. Makes me excited to get going. Thanks Diego. – Shawn Vesper
Affiliate programs can be run either on and in-house or on a network platform. Running an in-house affiliate program entails setting up an internal tracking, reporting and payment system, and program managers must recruit affiliates directly. When an affiliate program runs on a network, the retailer has immediate access to tracking, reporting and payment systems, and can draw on an existing pool of affiliates who are also part of the network. For Murphy, choosing the best platform was difficult.
In 2004, she started an affiliate marketing program on the ShareASale.com platform. “I wanted to develop a diversified stream of revenue for my business,” Murphy explains. “At the time, almost all of our traffic came from search engines. We still rely on the search engines for much of our traffic, but we have developed other revenue streams, including our affiliate program.”
Hi Stuart, I'm thinking of using something like this for my niche, been looking at the covert store builder you talked about and have a few questions, I noticed that you're not using this software for your site any reason why? On a forum I read that there have been no updates for a while and have you tried the theme just wondering how responsive it is as this is why I'm broke is such a fast site (no loading time when scrolling ect).
