I'm trying get into affiliate marketing in the build muscle niche (specifically the "build muscle if you're skinny" sub-niche), so my plan so far is building a blog that regularly puts out well-researched "how to build muscle" content.
On the website, I'll have a landing page with a lead magnet that collects emails and leads to a thank you page.
My plan for monetizing my leads is reviewing products (probably supplements, etc.) and attaching affiliate links.
My question is, is this plan plausible and what would be the best source of traffic?
Based on my research so far I've heard that youtube is easier to rank than blog articles, but it also seems difficult to get views on youtube unless you're one of the top fitness guys. I have a decently muscular physique but not the elite-level physique you see on youtube/instagram.
So with this in mind, should I keep trying to rank on google with articles or try to rank on youtube? Or is there a better source of traffic that I haven't mentioned?
My goal is to get to $3000-4000 profit per month and scale up from there. I'm willing to use paid traffic to gain traction if need be. What do you guys think? Thanks
