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.
Luxury Brand shoppers are looking to maximize the value of their purchase like any other consumer. By partnering with a publisher that offers a reward for the purchase this can convert customers who otherwise would be on the fence about making the purchase, or even sway the customer to making a purchase with your brand over others because of the added value they find with you.
It was about 2 years from starting how to make money online before I found Wealthy Affiliate, spending loads on sites which had none or very little training, Scams! Then when I signed up for WA I couldn`t believe how good it was with all the help when you had problems and questions, there is a community of dedicated entrepreneurs some with years of marketing experience giving you a hand when you`re stuck which with me was quite a bit.

Purveyors of imported, CBD-infused hemp oil claim it’s legal to market their wares anywhere in the United States as long as the oil contains less than 0.3 percent THC. Actually, it’s not so simple. Federal law prohibits U.S. farmers from growing hemp as a commercial crop, but the sale of imported, low-THC, industrial hemp products is permitted in the United States as long as these products are derived from the seed or stalk of the plant, not from the leaves and flowers.
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.

“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. Further details will be released as they become available to ensure that licensees and the public are fully educated and informed as to what the law requires concerning sale of marijuana products.”

Now this is the most thorough review I have seen yet. You did not miss one thing. I almost wanted to go and fix mine asap! LOL I really loved how you walked us right through the back office and what happens there. I have not seen that before and also the testimonies. You should be very proud of sharing this, Anh. Anyone visiting, WA is just as Anh says.
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

While the world goes gaga over Digital Marketing, few seem to be discussing affiliate marketing in depth. A true gem, a lot of digital marketing in the future will be reliant on affiliate marketing. While social media marketing helps create buzz, search engine marketing helps drive traffic, affiliate marketers helps converts traffic into leads and sales. As the focus on ROI and analytics grows, more businesses will demand (they have started demanding already) people to showcase the exact value of digital marketing efforts. If there is one decisive way to measure digital marketing, it’s affiliate marketing. These are best suited for both affiliate marketing beginners and experienced professionals. Of the thousands of methods to make money online, Affiliate Marketing stands out. It has been more than a decade that thousands have turned millionaires simply by mastering this art and its your turn to grow and shine now.
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.
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!

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.
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).
The basic idea that I had when starting out was to research all the sites that are currently in my niche and take detailed notes about what I liked and didn’t like about their sites. I didn’t critique content, per se, just the format, layout & structure of their sites. If their menu only had 3 items in it and I couldn’t find my way around easily then I made a note of that. If they had a ton of flashy ads in the right sidebar, and I found it distracting, then I took note of that as well. The general rule here is that I was building a site that I would want to visit – and one I would be proud to say I created… so I know what I like and I just used other sites to help me articulate what that is.

If I read all the information correctly, and I did a few SERPS searches for each site, I don’t rank within the top 120 for any of my current target keywords… but I rank pretty high on my older site for keywords that I will no longer be targeting. I’ll have to understand this more to be able to talk about what that means and how I should be using this information… Can anyone explain it to me?

He is the co-founder of Neil Patel Digital. The Wall Street Journal calls him a top influencer on the web, Forbes says he is one of the top 10 marketers, and Entrepreneur Magazine says he created one of the 100 most brilliant companies. Neil is a New York Times bestselling author and was recognized as a top 100 entrepreneur under the age of 30 by President Obama and a top 100 entrepreneur under the age of 35 by the United Nations.
Publishers work hard to deliver relevant content and drive quality traffic to their sites. Monetizing that traffic can be a challenge, and RevOffers simplifies the process by providing access to leading CBD oil companies who have unique products that consumers want. Add automated and reliable tracking, reporting and payout management, and RevOffers makes life a lot easier for cannabis marketing affiliates.
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.
Beyond these great offerings, Wealthy Affiliate doesn’t demand high upfront fees. If you are just starting out and want to test the waters, you can sign up for free for their Starter Package to check them out. This was a big deal for me personally because after searching so long and seeing so many schemes, I was wary of investing my money into something that would not have any return. Then when you are ready to invest, their premium package is completely affordable and comes with 50 websites and higher payouts.
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.

It is world’s premier CBD oil company which deals in highest quality and pure full-spectrum CBD oil products. The cannabis oil is 100% natural and non-GMO. It does not contain any extracts, preservers, emulsifiers, and condiments so the product stays in its most unadulterated and natural form. All the products are third-party verified and are manufactured by using green extraction methods. The obtains are taken from healing hemp (Cannabis Sativa) plants cultivated on licensed ranches in Colorado. These are the most convincing points to attract more customers.
- A blog goes without saying - just think of your audience - do you want to target newbies, amateurs or pros? Each one of these people will be very different and will want to see different things on the site and a different angle so try just focusing on 1 of these groups rather than trying to cater to them all. I think if you targeted newbies for example you could build a good following because you are an expert compared to them - don't know your experience enough to comment on the other two.

Online commerce has put purchasing power in the hands of the consumer in ways that hadn’t existed only a few short decades ago. With the power of social media, content publishers, and a plethora of digital media readily available at their fingertips, today’s consumer are more educated and shopper-savvy than ever before. This isn’t just limited to the product categories a customer is familiar with either. If a customer wants to find a car but doesn’t know the first thing about buying an automobile, there are more than enough websites ready to explain different buying options, how to identify a car, what to look for in a used vehicle, and more. And some of the biggest beneficiaries of this are luxury brand advertisers.

I’ve learned so much with this course! KC Tan is an excellent instructor. He covers all the bases. Also, his facebook group and email list have both been a great value for me. I’ve made money using this method, and I’m hoping to start making even more by learning list building details in another of his courses that I just started. So glad I came across his courses. – Maya Brown
Being a channel that is primed on conversion, publishers have excelled at being in a position to receive the final click. But what about rewarding early funnel influencers? Although the last click CPA model is the most common payment model within the affiliate channel, we have learned it lacks flexibility when it comes to rewarding early funnel influence.

#2: Another great program is Jon Dykstra's Niche Tycoon. This focuses on paid traffic and outsourcing content to make money with Google Adsense (and similar programs). It requires a bit more of a budget, and also has less of a support community than Wealthy Affiliate, so it's best for people with a bit of online marketing experience and some money to get their business going.
The CBD Oil industry is expected to grow 700 percent by the year 2020, that is around 2.1 billion as mentioned in the Hemp Business Journal. In the past few years, the wellness market has experienced a huge demand for CBD products because of its curing elements. CBD is one of the marijuana compounds that is liked with ample of health benefits without getting you high. The approximately $1 billion CBD industry is now budging into high gear, with sellers selling everything from CBD teas and beer substitutes to CBD dog remedies and coffee.
The chances are, it will take you a while creating new blog posts until you start to get your first 10 proper reads (most of the visits to your blog initially will be bots and so on), then your first 100 will be next, and so on - but before you know it, you'll be happy with the quality of the posts you're churning out, you'll be writing to thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands or even millions of readers, and generating tonnes and tonnes of lovely, high quality traffic to your sales funnels as a result!
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.

Whether you have a blog, and e-commerce website, run a YouTube channel, a podcast, Instagram, Facebook page or any other form of media, a good affiliate program can do wonders as a monetization model. All you need to do is to sign-up, get your affiliate link and promote it. With every sale, you earn a commission, and many customers will loyally return back for more consumables, accessories and even services.


Nunez says one of the keys to success of the CrazyForBargains affiliate program is Murphy’s involvement. It’s not uncommon for Murphy to consult with top affiliates directly and adjust product mix and merchandising to increase conversion, a strategy that drives mutual profitability and long term loyalty. From there, Nunez says, it’s just a matter of getting the word out.
It was by pure chance that I was reading an article written by a reporter. The article was about scams but at the end, offered the services of a Canadian Company. The company was called Wealthy Affiliate and they had been in business for 15 years and had at that time over 500,000 members and this somehow looked very serious. Today they have 760,000 members, which means they are certainly doing something right.

Since July 2014 I read for the first time about affiliate marketing, I never heard of this way of working before. Until then, I have worked in MLM (multi-level-marketing). Which wasn't that suitable for me. MLM is a very aggressive way of marketing, and you do need to harass everyone around you to join. That's not quite me. Affiliate marketing works very different. You write reviews about products of a company, and when people decide to buy something after reading your review, you get a few percentage of the sale. That's more my line of work.
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!
