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.
Easily one of the most popular brands in the CBD vape industry, Koi CBD has been a customer favorite for years. What this means for affiliates is that they can depend on a high-converting user experience driven by strong brand loyalty. Combined with great payouts and dedicated affiliate support,  Koi CBD’s offers one of the best CBD affiliate programs around.
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.

While the companies above do have a small variety of products for pets, these two offer CBD oil and Cannabis products for pets.  I actually order the fish oil tincture from Hemp & CBD SuperStore, but also buy Canna-Pet biscuits as well. My older dog has severe arthritis and the oil has helped her tremendously in relieving her pain. I use the biscuits for all of my dogs (also have 2 Doberman) for an afternoon “wellness” treat.

“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.”
Step three, monitor results, see what works, ask yourself why it worked, and scale it up. Drop what does not work, better if you understand why, if not just move on. Focus on your top 1-2 ways to drive traffic, focus on your strengths. You do not need to become good at everything. If you want to cover several traffic sources well, you will need to delegate. There is no way around it. Focus on what you do well and earns you commissions, and you’ll start doing it even better.
I have looked over very many IM courses some are really pricey but if you want to get a lot of info for free before you think about buying something I would try Mark Ling. You can sign up for the free member stuff which gives you access to a ton of videos and written articles that tell you a lot about IM. Once you check out all the free stuff which could take a month there is that much stuff it would give you a better Idea of what type of IM stuff you want to do. There are a lot of ways to make money on line and a lot of people to e-mail marketing but you have to start a list of people who you have gotten to sign up for something you are offering and often that can be a feat in itself.
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.
Cannabis-related products are clearly a massive growth business, now you can see the dividends of that revenue stream without making any investment up front.

But for Luxury Brands, assuming their customers aren’t shopping on loyalty and coupon sites is a symptom of a larger issue – a misunderstanding of what their customers value, and where they’re able to find said value. The table below evaluates some of the myths that Luxury Brand advertisers commonly face, along with some of the facts as evaluated by Rakuten Affiliate Network experts:

The website named in the subheading there is little more than an odd product aggregator, with a focus towards interesting, often expensive, amusing stuff. I’ve seen everything from drones to pajamas, and let me tell you; it’s always tempting. Looking at their front page right now, I see things like color changing showerheads, the Playboy Mansion that recently went up for sale, a magic wand TV remote, and a dolphin-shaped speedboat. Needless to say, the selection of products on the site runs the entire spectrum of price ranges.
