One of the worst mistakes you can make with an Authority Internet Business is to not diversify your income. This creates a “single point of failure” where one event can destroy everything you’ve worked hard to build.
I was reminded of this rule recently while working on DevelopGoodHabits.com after a three month break.
Even though I’m starting to make a decent income with a few habit-related Kindle books, there is a legitimate risk to putting my eggs in one basket. So ultimately, I decided to focus on affiliate marketing through the Amazon Associates program as my second source of income.
In this post, I’ll talk about why I recommend the Associates program to anyone building an authority site. Plus, I’ll detail seven steps to maximize your affiliate income with this program.
