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!
DuckDuckGo - It’s an alternative search engine to Google - it doesn’t track your history so the results it returns (in theory) are completely unbiased. This was nice when I was doing keyword research as well as other searches. I felt like my results were more targeted around the specific keywords and not around the ads, my history or whatever else Google thought I would like to see. I found a lot of high quality resources on page one of DDG that were on page 27 of my Google searches so I would have never found them otherwise.
Step two, understand what types of verticals and affiliate programs are compatible with your goals. Ideally, you would choose something you like promoting. This will make a difference in the medium term. For example, affiliate program A pays 5% commission on sales, to promote a big catalog of electronics. So in order to get USD300 per month, Jane would need to bring to the merchant at least USD 6000 in sales per month. She needs to ask herself: Is it feasible for her? Does she like to promote electronics?
Most of the guides, articles, ebooks and lessons focus on getting good backlinks and having solid on-page optimization. That’s a good way to improve your rankings, but what you may not know is that your host can also affect your rankings for the better or worse. If you are targeting a competitive term, then you need all the help that you can get. Here’s what a good host can do for your SEO. Continuous Uptime A good host should have at least 99.9% uptime, but more is always better. Uptime refers to how long the servers are up and your website is functioning. For example, a 99.9% uptime guarantee means that you will experience about 0.01% of downtime a month, or 43 minutes at most. The search engines understand that websites go down every now and then, but having too much downtime can hurt you because your website will seem […]
I wish I could give more than 5 stars because this course deserves more stars. I have learned a lot by taking this course. I was able to complete two websites making them look half way decent because I used what was taught to create the websites in a matter of days. I still have to add content to the website but I was able to accomplish more by taking this course than I have by taking other courses. I really felt like I accomplished something by taking this course. I plan to watch it again several times. This course is great for anyone wanting to build a website. The website does not have to be an affiliate website. I advise everyone to use the same theme that he uses in the course. I will take more of his courses for sure. – Latoya Simmons

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.
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. 

Hello, i love your website and all the good stuff you teach us:) I have a question concerning the copywrite of the pictures somebody would use on a site like thisiswhyimbroke.com.

So, a program that promises you anything outrageous should send you immediate red flags. Secondly, the best affiliate marketing training programs offer comprehensive support. Most people starting out in affiliate marketing do not have any formal training in web design, sales and marketing, and content creation. A good program will support you from beginning to end with lots of instructional classes and videos and expert technical support to help you fully understand the business.

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.

When I started out in affiliate marketing, I had less than no money, I was completely broke and had huge debts. I couldn't even contemplate spending money on advertising, on anything, in fact - other than trying to pay the bills and trying to get food for the family. If this describes you, don't worry - all this means is that you'll have to ignore any paid marketing to begin with and focus purely on your forte.

Over the last 20 years, I have seen lots of training courses. I agree with most of your experts. Site Build It was the first good training course I took shortly after Ken Envoy launched it. I have gone the Affiliorama route and thought it was a good program for beginners. At the time I took the course, there weren’t many options for niches. I have heard good things about Chris Farrell’s program but personally have not taken it. Wealthy Affiliate is by far the best program. Members learn to build an online business regardless of the niche(s) they select. Wealthy Affiliate also has a very strong support system in place. The active community of members means people can get their questions answered quickly.

Is there a way to be an affiliate without a website? For instance I could print out cards with the link on it for people to go to and make purchases or something of the sort. Is that possible? Do all affiliate programs require a website? If yes, would it suffice if I created a CBD blog and used that as my website for affiliate purposes? Thanks a lot
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?

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.

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.

In the case of medium-size affiliate business, there may be a need to go big, sell to a bigger competitor, or go home. We will likely see a trend where niche affiliates prosper because their audience is too specific to be reached by super-affiliates. Super-affiliates will prosper, with their increased power to bargain with merchants. And the affiliates who are in between, not niche but not big, may get squeezed.

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)

I've worked my way up to between 1,500 and 3,000 avg daily visitors and I'm just a month and a week. So considering that nothing was payed for with anything but time and typing, I'd say I'm on to something.. Actually, the last article I wrote has gotten over 200 facebook likes and 6,000 views in two days. This might not mean much to a lot of you because you actually know what you're doing, but I'm proud. My problem is going to be an obvious one that many have asked, so admins I apologize to you. But for the love of this community, I need your help.
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.
This month I also spent a lot of time researching the best structure for the 3 sites and spent a TON of time working on the outline for the menu structure. I’m a visual person so I set about outlining my sites in nested outlines. So I would have the main page, sub pages and categories. I would also put a bullet point for POSTS and then under that I would put any ideas I had for post titles and supporting keyword targets.
Have you ever thought what Affiliate marketing integration with your service/product can do for you business? Like you, even I had no idea what it could do. Though, I heard a lot of great things about it & finally gave a shot to integrate affiliate marketing with my WordPress plugins buiness. In simple words. this post is case study of my experience of implementing affiliate program for my digital products.

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!
