I am truck driver from the uk and after I was made redundant this year I googled the immortal words "how to make money on the internet". This led me to the inevitable affiliate marketing niche which really got my attention and this is the reason I find myself here today.
I decided to try and promote weight loss products or should I say diet pills (boo I hear you cry!) but not in the traditional sense. I am a keen amateur boxer and use certain diet pills to help me make my fighting weight, not the usual trash that doesn't work but the effective pills that have helped me in the past and because I KNOW they work I can market them with a very clear concience.
I will however, have to get as much content in there as possible and this will mean listing other diet pills that I know to be a load of rubbish. I will not market these and infact warn the visitor of their ineffectiveness, and their chances of being ripped off. I would be looking at listing approx 150 so called diet pills but just have about 5-10 affiliate links to the products that I have taken myself and know to work.
My idea is this: if I spend the next FIVE years chipping away, adding pages week by week, and building a 250+ page site that is honest and informative, create a boat load of backlinks and generally dedicating all my free time to the project, does anyone out their think I might be able to generate a very small income?
I would be more than happy to make a £100 a day I wouldn't expect any more, I'm not getting into this to make a million I'm just trying to make a little extra.
I've made a start on the website Its not too good design wise, I'm just trying to get the content on there for now and worry about design when I start getting found.
I know the diet pill world is full of con artist and rip off merchants because i've been on the wrong end of their dirty schemes myself so please consider this if you think to reply.
Any advice on this would be much appreciated. I'm a complete newbie to both computers and affiliate marketing so please be gentle.
