When I first decided to start my own company and was looking into the different ways to make money online, I was shocked by the number of scams, so-called “gurus” and get-rich-quick schemes that were out there. I kept coming across company after company, website after website, promising to help me make millions online overnight. These “get-rich-quick” schemes were a huge turn off and made me think there was actually no legitimate way to make money online other than becoming a part of these schemes. It got so bad that I almost gave up and resigned myself to the fact that I’d never be able to start my own business and I’d spend my life working as a long-haul truck driver the rest of my life. If you want to read my full success story you can do so here.
There's an element of gambling to it, each campaign is a gamble to a certain degree, although it's an informed, educated gamble rather than just rolling a dice and hoping for the best. Well, actually, I think for some people rolling a dice would be just as effective, but hopefully if you decide that advertising is your thing, you'll do it intelligently.
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.
“We send out a program-wide newsletter as well as post in our forums weekly.

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.
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.
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.
- A training course could be a good idea to target newbies - could be an ebook, video course (or both) or simply a series of emails - this will get them on your list and then in the training course you will have affiliate links to the robots/platforms etc or other products that will make their job of trading easier/make them money easier/faster etc - they are also then on your list for future communication and marketing.
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.
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.
If your customers enroll in the Hot Juice auto-delivery program, as the referring affiliate you’ll receive regular commissions for every repeated order they make. Picture yourself getting a regular check that you can depend on while your customers get the vape juice and CBD products they love on the same schedule. Happiness is delivered door-to-door on both ends with continuous commissions that correspond with recurring deliveries of America’s favorite vape juice.
Each domain was already targeted to specific niches so really that was sort of already set... I just had to niche-down a little and do a ton of research to identify and potential opportunities. Starting from scratch might have been easier since I would have discovered a niche and then buy the domain... This way I had the domain and had to kinda back into the niche.
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.

HempMeds is a CBD Oil company, which is causing quite a buzz among medical scientists and patients. The past year has seen a surge of interest in cannabidiol (CBD), a non-intoxicating cannabis compound with significant therapeutic properties. Numerous commercial start-ups and internet retailers have jumped on the CBD bandwagon, touting CBD derived from industrial hemp as the next big thing, a miracle oil that can shrink tumors, quell seizures, and ease chronic pain—without making people feel “stoned.”
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.
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.
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.
There are many types of marketing methods, but when we look at the big picture, affiliate marketing is the best to create automated income. With affiliate marketing, as soon as a visitor clicks on the affiliate link – no matter how many days later he purchases the product, it will still be considered as an affiliate sale, entitling you for a commission.
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”.
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.
The mindset of people has changed over the last decade. Most people now have no trust issues in buying online because companies are now either putting customer satisfaction first on their own or being held accountable by the government. So, now is the best time to enter the affiliate marketing industry if you’re willing to put in some work and play the cards right.
– It’s a personal channel where you convince real humans to take a chance on your brand and promote it. They might earn a commission if there’s a conversion, and they might not. This changes the dynamics of the channel too. You can’t just say: “Hey, do this for me! I’m paying you!” If you’re engaging with a new affiliate it’s because you think their audience would be interested in your client’s product or service – but it might not work and thus they might not get paid afterwards. It makes it more challenging but it also makes it more fun.
I will try and put together a very detailed blog post sometime this month about the details of how I outlined my site. Watch for that in a couple (or more) weeks. I’m not even going to imply that the way I did it was the best way or even the correct way – it’s just how it worked for me and I HOPE that it works out for what I’m trying to accomplish.
Review : I’m really happy that I bought this course. Theo was so informative and had really good explanations. I loved how she walked us through setting up our blog step by step which really helped me and also motivated me to get it done. It made starting my blog less overwhelming for me to see her steps on Word Press. She was very thorough and I feel a lot better about it now. She even is responsive on the Facebook group. Would definitely recommend this course! If anything could be changed, I would just want to see even more steps on the word press side as far as physically setting things up. Thanks for a great course Theo! – Jamie Banks
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.
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.
