The meat of Darren’s post is about why he chose to use Amazon for his affiliate marketing, despite all of the perfectly valid criticisms out there. Amazon commissions are small, sure, and a lot of Amazon products are cheap, so success often relies on big ticket niches – which are packed – or volume, which takes a long time to build. However, he points out:

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.


- 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.
There are challenges to running a successful affiliate program. One of them is “trademark bidding,” the practice of affiliates submitting pay-per-click bids on a brand name or trademark, hoping to get their ads to appear in search engine results when a consumer searches for that brand or trademark. Traditional marketing theory would attribute that traffic to successful branding campaigns, not to an affiliate who manages to bid high enough to get its affiliate link listed in results. Nunez combats that with constant monitoring of search engine results.
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 

As you attract traffic to your site, you can expose your visitors to offers from CBD oil companies that have affiliate programs. When your audience members purchase products from the CBD oil companies you are working with, you earn commissions. Repeat and scale up. This is how you succeed as an affiliate marketer in the cannabis and CBD oil market.

When asked about the best main selling point for LiveChat, Robert said “I usually like to recommend it to visitors who don’t mind paying a little extra and want to have a hassle-free, well-designed and well-thought-out product”. Since the site promotes its own content, Robert doesn’t use the tools provided by the program. He decided to rely solely on his own blog writing and reviews and only added LiveChat logo in the article.
Yes I am definitely going to start an affiliate site/blog. Now I have to decide a niche. I am sure I will be able to do that easily with your help. My major concern is; how will I drive traffic to it? (though I know you have mentioned a lot of information about it on your blog). I have no major experience with social media marketing, etc - just some SEO. Any suggestions how I should move forward?
