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.
This month I broke the site! I had originally used this site for local news & information so each subdomain was specific to a region. Each one had it’s own WP instance and, in some cases, duplicated content. I had to get rid of those so I merged all the content and deleted all the subdomains & consolidated. This made me take a huge hit in traffic. My webmaster tools on Google now show that I have 1400 404! error pages. This is concerning since it also shows that I have 229 external backlinks - so I fixed the main ones and redirected the rest as best I could. I also found an internal link checking tool (Broken Link Checker by Janis Elsts) and it showed that I had over 2200 Broken Links! I’m not sure I’ll ever fix all of them but at least this way they are identified. This is going to be a long process to rebuild but I knew that coming in since the whole strategy will pivot. But at least I have some quality content and a base of users/traffic that I can start to regrow.
#1. Wealthy Affiliate - Wealthy Affiliate is my top choice for anyone interested in learning how to create an online business. The training is the best out there and websites and hosting are all included in the program. They also have a free option to join without a credit card so that you can see what is available in the program before you purchase.
- 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.
I put together a quick sample outline for a topic I just made up on the fly… I don’t know whether or not this is a viable (or even real) niche but I used it to illustrate how I go about creating my site outline. I chose the niche of “Sports Team Bobbleheads” - I created a quick menu structure based off of this topic and a few of the keywords for which I would want to optimize. Click above to see image of my outline. I indicated whether each one is a page, a post, or a category. Then I built those pages, posts and categories but didn’t put anything in them. I just created them so I could get all my internal links setup before writing my first sentence. The items in yellow are for explaining what each item will be on the site. Again, this is how I do it since I’m a very visual person and I really like outlines & bullet points!
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.
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.
“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.”

Now, $42,000 a year isn’t all that impressive, all things considered. That’s not quite the whole story, though. His earnings only really started to shoot up in 2008 or so. It’s more accurate to say that he started out making a pittance, and that in recent years he has hovered around $80,000 per year. That’s a respectable haul, and all from running a handful of websites, one of which is geared specifically towards helping bloggers reach their own success with affiliate marketing.
There’s a lot of skepticism in the affiliate marketing community about how many people are actually successful out there. I can certainly appreciate why that is, too. Anyone would be skeptical if they looked around and noticed the only people making money in affiliate marketing were the people selling tools to help newbie affiliate marketers get into the game.

Hieu’s business model isn’t designed to set up 1-2 sites and push them until they’re powerhouses he can live off of indefinitely. Rather, he builds sites and makes them moderate successes, something like a proof of concept. The site he sold in this case study took nine months to reach a monthly income level of $1,600, at which point he sold it for about 10x that amount.
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.
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:
