How I Made $273.10 In One Month With Two Blogs (Passively!)

by 41 comments
Yes, I made $273.10 with two blogs passively in affiliate commissions. How did I do this? Well, here's the sharing part so listen up!

1) I bought Niche Marketing on Crack from a link in the forum here (thanks Allen).

2) I read it and took action.

NMOC teaches you how to setup niche blogs to sell products. Most people are not very successful at selling and neither was I. I figured that I would fail at this like I did some other times I dabbled at affiliate marketing. This time, however, I did things a little differently. Here's what I did:

I got the mechanics down regarding creating niche blogs. Once I knew how to setup my blog, I needed something to promote. I saw some kids at the local pizzeria watching television. I sat down near them and listened to their comments. It was clear that some things were cool and others just weren't. I took some notes on a napkin (I refrained from wiping my face with this one). I then went to our local mall and listened to conversations at many counters there, all retail varieties from cell phones to makeup. I took more notes.

I went home and put up two test blogs of hot products that people were raving about. I wrote four articles and submitted two to and the other two to using their article distribution service.

Results: Page one for both products (even manufacturer is lower than me!) and my articles fill up page one and half of page two!
Results: $273.10 with no more effort on my part. I believe that this will continue to grow.

Well, that's all. I talk about this more on my blog. I hope this will help someone to get off their duff and do something to make money!

      Well done.

      I love seeing posts like this because no matter how many times I tell people it can be really easy to make money as an affiliate, there are always those who think it must be difficult.

      I made almost $8k for under an hours work doing almost the same as you described previously when I was just showing someone how to quickly get started. They didn't believe it could be so easy until we logged in a week later to see what results had happened.

      Thanks for sharing your story, hopefully more Warriors will get the message.

      Well, this just seems to get better and better. I just saw another $28.69 in my CJ account! For all the big fish in the pond, please don't rain on my parade, I know it's just peanuts for some, but I have to say I am excited that the sales keep coming and I have not touched the blogs at all! Also, I am going to try PPC traffic to the blogs to see if they convert the same. The organic traffic conversion stats for the better of the two blogs is pretty impressive. It is $2.43/clickthrough! Wow, not bad.

    Hi Tommy...

    How is you blog doing now? could you share what you've learned?

    Hey TomG:

    Good tip!

    The technique has my highest recommendation, as I personally made money with it too though I have different ways to identify "hot products" in specific niche.

    Here's how: I usually hit the forums in my niche, and take notes of the products/brand names people are discussing. Then, I will join related affiliate programs and start promoting the products.

    In addition, you can find the hot products from eBay Pulse and Amazon best sellers in respective categories.

    Also, if you want to make more $ doing less work, promote products with high commissions
