Niche Affiliate Marketing

Death of Niche SitesAt the start of 2012 I decided to test the profitability of niche sites.

I heard a lot of great things about this income model and wanted in on the action!

For four months I worked hard on these sites.  And I’ve even made a little money.

But.

I don’t believe the “niche site” model is a viable long-term strategy for affiliate marketers.

In this post, I’ll tell you why.  Plus I’ll give reasons why you should stop creating niche sites and focus on building a real, long-term business.

To start, let’s go over my… [click to continue…]

Niche Affiliate IncomeCan you make money with small niche sites?

This is a question I want to answer in 2012.

You see, I’ve built a successful authority affiliate marketing business.  But I’ve never tried my hand at creating multiple small-scale websites.

So my goal for 2012 is to figure out this whole niche site thing.  I even created a special series that talks about how I’m doing it.

In today’s post, I’ll provide my first income report from these experiments.  I’ll show what has made money.  Plus I’ll detail a major setback that’s a negative impact on these sites.  And finally I’ll give my opinion on the future of niche sites.

How to Make Money on YouTubeRecently, I’ve decided to change the scope of my niche affiliate income series.

One of my new tests is to create and post videos on YouTube.

Specifically, these videos make money from affiliate marketing by promoting brand new products.  (This is called “Launch Jacking.”)

Now…

I get the occasional email which asks about my specific YouTube strategy.

So I thought it’d be interesting to provide a step-by-step description of how I use this website.

Niche Affiliate IncomeIt’s been over a month since I’ve talked about my niche affiliate income sites.

A lot has happened with this project even though I haven’t really mentioned it lately.

So I thought I’d give a quick update and let you know how it’s coming along.

(Click here to get an overview of how I build niche affiliate websites.)

The main reason I’ve kept quiet about this project is I’m testing a lot of things.  So I didn’t want to recommend any specific technique till I was sure it actually works.

With that said, here are the preliminary results from the first site… [click to continue…]

Niche Income Website LessonsIn the last month, I’ve gotten into building small niche websites.  So I was happy when Tom sent me this guest post about this very topic. 

I think he provides some excellent advice here. That’s why I urge you pay close attention to the lessons that Tom has learned the hard way…

It’s amazing how much you can learn in a short space of time if you apply yourself.

In 3 short months, I ranked no. 1 in Google for several fairly competitive keywords. Then I lost it all. Now I’m rebuilding with three more sites.

When it comes to keyword research and search engine optimization, I can confidently say that I have had some tough lessons. I have made mistakes that have set me back a long way.

But that is of benefit for two reasons:

  1. I have learnt from my mistakes, and won’t make them again.
  2. I am in a position to teach others about my mistakes, so that they never have to make them in the first place. [click to continue…]
