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.
There are SO MANY training programs out there all promising to make you rich online with as little effort as possible. Well, first of all, a good program will never promise you overnight success or millions of dollars. The fact is that it takes an average of 18 months to 2 years to build a successful affiliate marketing company online, and though there are some extreme examples where people make millions of dollars a year, most successful affiliate marketers earn a comfortable living. I highly recommend you check out the following two articles:
If you are interested in learning the process behind building a WordPress website then you should look at Learn how to Build High Quality Affiliate Websites. This will help you not just learn how to promote but also get you going with setting up the wordpress website and then promote relevant products. Andrew’s course is a Bestselling Course and we have no doubts why. The following pointers should help you make up your mind. Think of this program like going to affiliate marketing school.

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? 

** Please do your research on these products before promoting them so that you don't mislead anyone! Some products do contain trace amounts of THC so be cognizant of that in how you promote them. Also, if you do write a blog post and recommend or reference these products, DO NOT MAKE medical claims in reference to them. You can write a review based on your own use of the product or something like that but you can NOT say things like “this product cures….”  Also, be sure to read each company's Terms of Service (TOS) for any additional things specific to that company. 

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.

In July 2009, Murphy hired an outsourced program manager to run the affiliate program. She chose Michael Nunez of AffiliateManager.com. Nunez’s fees range between $2,500 and $5,000 per month. The variance depends on whether or not there are performance incentives in place, and on whether additional services are needed such as design and development.

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
It’s no secret that affiliate marketing is built on the entrepreneurial spirit of its publishers and the variety and diversity of businesses driving the channel forward. It is also, by no means, just a business for the top performing elite. This attitude is now supported by brands more than ever as they initiate influencer campaigns and actively seek out offerings from smaller content publishers via Opportunity Marketplace.
– 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.
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. 

And I was also been able to land on the biggest marketing blogs like Problogger.net, Daily blog tips, Basic blog tips and a lot more with my guest posts. The key here is – “I spend a lot of time from research to finish the posts I write”. If you create posts worth bookmarking, you will naturally attract links, shares and sales. That’s what you need to do – “create great content and add value”.
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.
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.

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.
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?
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.

What’s my niche? If you haven’t decided yet or you’d like to hear “yes!” more often when enrolling clients, Your Highly Profitable Niche is for you. Discover how to niche so you stand out in the crowd and know exactly what your ideal clients will buy from you.

Thanks Stuart for the article. I am just trying to clear some of my confusion. On TIWIB, there is hardly any content. I mean there are lot of images and ads going to Amazon and other retailers, but hardly any written content. Despite of thin content, the site is still ranking on google. What about the "content is king" statement that everybody brags about. I am assuming the site is ranking due to many of the products it is promoting are weird. Less competition and easy to rank.
"Beware guys! Amazon does not approve you for Amazon Asociates if you show them a site with this theme and with only Amazon content on it. You need to have a "blog-like" site with content and maybe a few Amazon add blocks only. I did the mistake to populate a site with this theme and a few hundred goods from Amazon, and my application was turned down at once. Luckily I have several Amazon affiliate IDs, and I could therefore replace the unapproved ID in my mysql database with one of my "old" ones. Then all worked just great. If you don't have "old" IDs, you must show Amazon a blog or other content rich site to be approved. Then you are free to change over to this theme later on. "
Let me add a comment and an idea about Chris Farrell. His teaching method is very good. He goes one step at a time; his video library is extensive; the fee for his Membership site is well worth it. I have two monitors and it's a snap to watch/listen to his videos on one and follow the instructions on the other. With the stop/go feature on the videos, it makes it real simple for an Idaho Farm Boy.
- 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.

Indeed it is the best guide for starters who would want to start their business online. It gives them confidence and belief that there is no second thought as to which affiliate training is trusted to gain knowledge. Mentioning Wealthy Affiliate, we can all agree it is the benchmark for other sites because of the transparency needed for site developers and the search engine websites such as Bing and Google.
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!
The problem is that, despite other claims, the DEA considers CBD product to be illegal under the Controlled Substances Act along with other illicit cannabis products. It also means that they are enhancing their ability to track CBD and enforce its interpretation of the law.In truth, CBD merchants were probably always on the wrong side of the gray area in DEA’s eyes because CBD extracts almost necessarily contain other cannabinoids. 

I was just reading your article and it seems like all of these experts are pointing primarily towards this one course – Wealthy Affiliate. Do you have anymore information about this course? What is it exactly and how does it work? Furthermore, I actually have a bit of experience myself with Affiliorama and I find that it’s so tough because of all the information. I get so overwhelmed. Is Wealthy Affiliate better in terms of this?
The modern methods are helping the CBD industry to grow at a faster rate. The open awareness spread through the internet makes it easy for the customers to buy the CBD oil product of their favorite brand online. As we can see the benefits of the product with hardly any significant side effects, the industry will surely take on the market with a bang in the coming years. The manufacturers are already rolling in lots of money through best promotional techniques, and now it’s your chance to bring in some cash in your pocket. For more info on this, check out the best CBD affiliate programs mentioned below. 

As DEA stated in its justification: “Although it might be theoretically possible to produce a CBD extract that contains absolutely no amounts of other cannabinoids, the DEA is not aware of any industrially-utilized methods that have achieved this result.” The difference now is that the DEA is officially putting CBD sellers on notice that their businesses are subject to enforcement action.


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.

Always research the companies that you plan to join! This is becoming a booming industry and there isn't yet much in the way of regulation to ensure safe and quality products. When researching CBD Oil affiliate programs, look for reviews (not from their own sites) that mention things about the quality of the products, as well as information on shipping and customer service.  Be on the lookout for any negative reviews that raise flags. The best way to promote is to try the products and then begin with that company so you can fully testify to it.
For a slightly different take on the subject and figuring out how to get targeted traffic onto your promoted links, you must have a look at Affiliate Marketing: Instant Traffic to Affiliate Links. A quick look at the reviews will help you decide if this is the exact course you are looking for. Sometimes the right approach is what is required to make a campaign work, this one might just work for you.

Online commerce has put purchasing power in the hands of the consumer in ways that hadn’t existed only a few short decades ago.
