My business, Pure Residuals, was developed and launched in July of 2013. It is my primary website, but one of many over the previous 10-15 years of earning real money online. I have made thousands of dollars selling other peoples' stuff for fantastic commissions and I truly enjoy doing it and teaching others how to get started and eventually become a full-time online marketer.
Yes, when you find an effective strategy to get traffic, your affiliate income can go from 1 to 100 overnight. But in order to get to that glorious day, you would probably need to have invested at least months in work. So yeah, affiliate marketing can be an instant success in terms of the change of profits you make, but one that took months in the making.

Over the month that my site has been live, I've made $8 with with a combo of Chitika and infolinks.. In two weeks... With 24,000 visitors.. Before I get a ton of comments about why I shouldn't have used Chitika and infolinks, shush. Before those, I made $0 with amazong affiliates and ebay partners and Adsense won't approve because of lack of content. But because my site has actually become something special, I don't want to dishonor my work with crap ads that dont pay. So now i've ditched chitika and infolinks, and signed up with cj, maxbounty, amazon, ebay, shareasale, and a few others I cannot remember because I'm slightly intoxicated at the moment.. Basically, I have options as far as ads. The site is based on making the best of old tech, and the article that is doing really well is on Linux, so I'm currently showing primarily ads for a free tablet through maxbounty. Just started those today though. Also showing a few other affiliate links that I've written about and could incorporate. I take pride in the way my site looks and only add ads when they are appropriate and look good. I tell my readers, very clearly and pleasantly, that ads help to pay for the content that they read and to whitelist my site. If the ads are ugly or irrelevant, they don't pass.i've even payed for a few things that I advertise lol.

The best way to increase your own earnings is to offer your audience products that truly benefit their everyday lives. Our Hot Juice eliquid and CBD affiliate program was created to broaden the reach of a product line we created with passion to offer the world products they’ll immediately appreciate. In turn, your website will provide you with the growing fruit of an expanding marketplace without being directly linked either ideologically or ethically to the use or connotation of those products. The end result, is an endless stream of revenue generated by offering potential customers items they already want and pointing them towards a brand they can invest sincere trust in for a long-term business relationship that benefits everyone involved.


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?

- 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.
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.

The post I linked isn’t a direct post from the owner of the site. It’s a case study performed from the outside, so you have a better idea of how objective it is. The founder of TIWIB struggled with failed ventures before he hit upon the formula he used for the site, taking existing product affiliate pages and adding infinite scrolling, better images, and careful product selection.

The words on the program page could have been my very thoughts that you put into writing. I have been researching this for a while and have the ‘overload’ of info. Would you be willing and able to allow me to work out a payment plan with you for your program? I know that $77 doesn’t sound like much to most but to me, it is the ability to pay my next month’s bills or not. Do you think it would be better to purchase the program or put the money towards your mentoring program. Thank you, in advance, for your consideration.


You can read the rest of his post above for a bunch of tips on becoming an Amazon affiliate success. Some of the tips are pretty common, like “get more traffic,” but that doesn’t change how valuable Darren’s site is as a whole. You can also listen to a more recent post about his success – showing he topped the $500K threshold – with this podcast post.

My strategy was to get sales and traffic through SEO. That meant I could work 1 to 3 months without seeing any substantial increase in my affiliate commissions. But once my SEO tactics allowed my sites to climb Google’s ranking, then I would have a sudden increase in profits overnight. However, SEO became tougher and tougher, plus the mix of paid/organic results changed a lot in favor of paid listings.

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.
AFFILIATE DISCLOSURE: You should assume that I am an affiliate for products that I recommend through my website. If you purchase those items through my links I will earn an affiliate commission. You will not pay more when buying a product through my link. In fact, I oftentimes am able to negotiate a lower rate (or bonuses) not available elsewhere online. Plus, when you order through my link, it helps me to continue to offer you a ton of quality free information through my blog @ email list:)
David’s study is a case where white hat effort can grow a site very quickly, but it does rely a little on timing, as well as a lot of research in picking the right niche. His post doesn’t go too deep into it, but you can find more about picking a niche in a post we wrote a few days ago. There’s also a ton of information on it out there on other sites, like David’s, Darren’s, and others.
A blog/ pricecomparison website/ coupon website/ email marketer/ influencer/ or anyone else with an audience puts a special Link or banner (there are more options, but let’s keep it simple) on their site, network or newsletter to promote Brand X. If someone clicks on the link then buys something on the site of Brand X within a certain window of time, the Affiliate gets a commission. This could be a flat rate or a percentage of the sale.

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.
The answer has assumed to be exclusivity: partner with a few publishers that reflect the high value that a luxury brand advertiser brings in their products, and capture that market that values exclusivity and high quality. However, there are publishing partnership opportunities in affiliate marketing that maintain that exclusivity and value while capturing new customers and extending the brand’s reach. In this case study, we take a close look at how luxury brands can yield high amounts of success in affiliate marketing by partnering with Coupon and Loyalty/Reward sites without compromising the brand’s high value.
Love CBD is another brand that I hold dear to my heart, and not just as an affiliate marketer. I fell in love with their CBD oil from the very first time and decided that I should tell people about it. This company is based in England and is quickly gaining popularity in the country.

Anyway I digress. I know there is a search function and I also know there has been some threads here or there about which program is the best. Because I am not that familiar with the whole IM scene I cannot talk intelligently about this guru or that mentor. I am familiar with a few of the more "famous names" but other than that I hate to admit it but I am newbie.
Because CBD is legal in all 50 states, and the recent surge in demand for CBD, it’s also becoming increasingly popular for webmasters to learn how to sell CBD oil online.

It will be best to sell some products yourself so you can test your copy and conversion rates. When you have a tested product you can release it to the market. New products for affiliates to promote are like crack, there is a constant demand for more and better. Forex is a very hungry, desperate market. If your product works and you can convincingly demonstrate that, you should have little problem finding affiliates.
“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.”
