February Commentary & Details: This past month was spent doing a lot of keyword research on each niche to find the exact focus for each site. For the purpose of my case study, I’m not going to get into the details on how I chose my keywords or my niches on Reddit. There are plenty of great case studies out there that talk about researching keywords/niches /u/HumbleSalesman has a pretty good one. There are also fantastic resources out there on the web - just Google (or DDG) it. I have provided some “real life” searches that I did this month below.

David is a UK marketer and SEO expert who has been working in the industry for 15 years. He shares his methods and tips for how to create and grow a marketing site, based on his own experiences. The blog he uses for a case study went from freshly created to making just under $4,000 a month, in the span of six months. That’s remarkably fast, and stands as a testament to David’s skill as an affiliate marketer.
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.
This course will provide you with a detailed education about affiliate marketing. Especially since it’s created by master affiliate marketer, KC Tan, who reveals all his secrets in the 3-hour on-demand video.

At number two we have CBD Essence which is also a top-quality CBD products manufacturer. For the affiliates, it has an added advantage due to its long cookie duration dogma which will help them to earn commission for a long time on their recommendations. In addition to this, the company offers absolutely high-quality products for various purposes keeping in mind their privileged customers. The customer-oriented shopping experience and fetching customer service are also great. So, these strong points definitely make this brand a competent one.
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. The good news here is that if you have done any sort of affiliate marketing on your own websites, this will make sense and be extremely easy to implement and market in just under an hour of work.
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.
I'm not particularly comfortable doing this, it just doesn't feel natural when I do it. I feel natural typing, I come up with ideas when I'm at the keyboard typing, but when I'm in front of the camera I go completely blank ;-). I actually used to work in TV too, but as a supporting artist/extra, so I didn't really need to do anything other than stand there and mime - I had a  small speaking role once, really didn't enjoy it!
The basic idea that I had when starting out was to research all the sites that are currently in my niche and take detailed notes about what I liked and didn’t like about their sites. I didn’t critique content, per se, just the format, layout & structure of their sites. If their menu only had 3 items in it and I couldn’t find my way around easily then I made a note of that. If they had a ton of flashy ads in the right sidebar, and I found it distracting, then I took note of that as well. The general rule here is that I was building a site that I would want to visit – and one I would be proud to say I created… so I know what I like and I just used other sites to help me articulate what that is.

Is there anyway i can make payments i really want to do this & giving the chance i know i can!!! THANK YOU LAURA
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. 

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.
And finally, before signing up for any type of affiliate marketer training program, ask yourself, “does this REALLY make sense?” For example, if someone is selling you an $8 e-book and that e-book is supposed to show you how to create websites that earn $10k per month on autopilot, do you really think that makes sense? If you figured out how to create “auto-pilot” websites that earn $10k per month would you give away your secrets to everyone in a measly $8 e-book? Of course not! You’d be spending your time building as many of those auto-pilot websites you could and become a billionaire!
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.
Affiliate programs can be run either on and in-house or on a network platform. Running an in-house affiliate program entails setting up an internal tracking, reporting and payment system, and program managers must recruit affiliates directly. When an affiliate program runs on a network, the retailer has immediate access to tracking, reporting and payment systems, and can draw on an existing pool of affiliates who are also part of the network. For Murphy, choosing the best platform was difficult.
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.
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.

And speaking of customers, one of the best ways your Luxury Brand can gain an advantage by simply thinking about who their customers are, not who they envision them to be. According to Rakuten affiliate experts, the challenge comes from Luxury Brand advertisers thinking that their customers prioritize the presentation and exclusivity of the brand, which is why they’d prefer to learn about products from places like content sites versus coupon/loyalty programs. While it’s true that customers do appreciate the value and presentation of the brand, they’re not on coupon sites or loyalty sites for a discount or because they can’t afford the brand otherwise – just the opposite in fact. Most affluent shoppers are looking to buy Luxury Brands through these sites because they’re looking to earn value in places other than savings. This could be because of a rewards-type structure on loyalty sites, or free shipping on a coupon site. Knowing your customers are key, knowing where they shop and why is even better. the graphic on the right illustrates the mindset of affluent consumers: they shop for the best deal the can, even if that deal means finding their savings somewhere other than the pricetag.
I kind of addressed this in one of my previous comments. The niches were already selected when I bought the domains 5+ years ago. And those were just things that I thought were popular/hot back then. So I basically had to back into a target (aka niche-down). It’s probably not the best way to do it but, in my case, it kind of worked since I was able to follow that path (see mind map discussion on /u/HumbleSalesman ‘s case study from November I think...) pretty deep and see some opportunities.
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!

If she is already someone who likes to write about beauty and skin-care and has several friends/followers on her social channels that like the topic, she can start promoting FOREO products to them. This second program from FOREO can turn out to be a faster, easier and more enjoyable for her compared to the electronics affiliate program we saw earlier.
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.
Hi! I have problems with simple things like that, I don’t understand how to use the link from click bank and where to paste it in my squeeze page, basic as that. I have read allot and watching webinars, how to choose a niche and products I think I have learned that, for me the problem is how to start a web site (word press plug in) and how to build a squeeze page from the product link from click bank and click sure. Also the email content in squeeze page, can you help with that?

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.
Cannabidiol, also recognized as CBD, is one of over 60+ organically occurring cannabinoid complexes found in Cannabis, a yearly herbaceous blossoming plant. CBD oil is obtained from an organic constituent growing the plant’s excretions.

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.

Luxury brand advertisers have been empowered through affiliate marketing. Partnering with publishers that promote their products to very specific types of consumers, highlighting not just the features of the product but why those features are right for those shoppers, is a reach that wasn’t nearly as available years ago. This model of advertising achieves two goals simultaneously: shows shoppers why that particular luxury brand is right for them, and maintains that brand’s prestigiousness. However, there’s a challenge that many luxury brand advertisers face: how do they maintain prestige while simultaneously capturing new customers?
Sometimes, you need a good refresher about how successful actual people can be. People who post about their success, people who try to help others become successful, people who don’t care about their niche being undercut because they know they’re the best at what they do. I’ve tracked down case studies from five of these successful marketers, and that’s what I’m bringing to you today.
"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. "

But for Luxury Brands, assuming their customers aren’t shopping on loyalty and coupon sites is a symptom of a larger issue – a misunderstanding of what their customers value, and where they’re able to find said value. The table below evaluates some of the myths that Luxury Brand advertisers commonly face, along with some of the facts as evaluated by Rakuten Affiliate Network experts:

Quora - similar to Reddit but it’s not anonymous so you have to limit how much you ask/share if you want to protect your niche and your ideas. But, it’s nice for getting answers from actual “known” experts. That’s the one drawback to Reddit - someone on here that claims to be an authority could actually just be some guy living in his mom’s basement regurgitating information found on the internet. 

The last step here is to take action. I assume you’re reading this because you already have your own website, but the truth is it’s not necessary. If you do have a website, the Diem CBD Ambassador Area has pretty much everything you need to get started, including web banners, direct linking capabilities, and stat tracking. But if you want to promote sales locally, Diem CBD also offers custom business cards and postcards for affiliates to use through networking with local businesses. No other CBD affiliate program offers this same level of promotional material, and through my discussions with their affiliate manager it’s become pretty clear that they are willing to provide many just about any resources I need as long as they see me actively promoting their products and making sales. The level of support so far has been incredible.

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
Schefren brought something new to the Internet marketing business, which had hitherto been compared to the ‘old wild west.’ Where others had learned by experimentation tricks and fancy ways to apply direct marketing tactics to the on-line world, few knew how to run their businesses and enjoy quality time at home with their families. This was somewhat ironic since many of these Internet marketers were working out of bedroom, home-offices.

These are just the key features, but the platform offers many more. Check them out and use all the features on your way to becoming an affiliate marketing pro. However, some say the amount of knowledge might be overwhelming for new Wealthy Affiliate users, therefore take one affiliate marketing training course at a time and ensure you learn it and put those tricks into practice before you move on to the next chapter.
Site Build It - Site Build It is my second choice for learning how to create an online business. The training is very good and you get one website with hosting included.

I started here back in 2007 and the education that I received was very valuable and helped me to achieve a great level of success.

Thanks to the company’s continued efforts in making their affiliate’s life easier, you’ll get the benefit of tiered commissions and hands-on assistance whenever needed. I can state from my personal experience that CBDEssence pays on time and takes the personal interest in your success. The products are also of a holistic nature and have proven to be beneficial for anxiety, pain, and many other issues.


Being a channel that is primed on conversion, publishers have excelled at being in a position to receive the final click. But what about rewarding early funnel influencers? Although the last click CPA model is the most common payment model within the affiliate channel, we have learned it lacks flexibility when it comes to rewarding early funnel influence.
Besides the already-quoted (a) substantial increase in affiliate-referred business (1,609% YoY increase in monetary sales volume, and 3,525% YoY increase in the number of items sold), the program now has (b) a well-diversified and active affiliate base, and (c) due to the proactive compliance policing and prompt removal of violators, it is now more attractive for new affiliates to join.

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?
yes I am aware of the search button as I posted. I am looking for direction and I want to "cut to the chase" I am not interested in spending months sifting through every single post about affiliate marketing trying to figure out what is good information and what is useless (as I am sure there are tons of useless posts and mis information) not to mention outdated information.
Selectiveness Can Make for Few Options: Luxury Brands that are trying to find content publishing partners may run into the issue that, by the time they narrow down their selection, there are only a select few options available for them to work with. This creates a challenge for Luxury Brands who are looking to develop a successful affiliate model: fewer publishers mean fewer opportunities, and fewer opportunities will result in an uphill battle.
“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.”
